Posted by Jackie Siciliano on February 27, 2012

Jedediah Bila appeared on “The Victory Sessions” with host Stephen K. Bannon last night at which time she discussed the release of Governor Sarah Palin’s additional emails.

It’s been anticipated for months and now, “The Undefeated” is available today on DVD.  Personally, I am headed out to my local Wal-Mart before work to pick up five (yes, that’s 5) copies.  Three copies will be used as gifts, one copy is for myself, and one I will use to loan to others so that they can see for themselves the stellar record and accomplishments of Governor Sarah Palin and her team.

Written and produced by Stephen Bannon, “The Undefeated” is a  fast-paced  documentary presented in three acts.  You can read more about the film here

If you can’t find the DVD locally, you can order it online at Walmart for $12.96 or Amazon for $12.99.  Walmart also has what is being promoted as an “exclusive”, “The Undefeated” DVD packaged with the “Going Rogue” audiobook for $14.96; however, at time of writing the item is shown as out of stock.

Film Creator Stephen Bannon: “Fire From the Heartland” Was Inspired By Sarah Palin

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 27, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Not long after I hit “publish” on the story about Citizens United’s attempt to pump up Michele Bachmann in Iowa by repackaging the movie Fire From The Heartland, from a movie about conservative women, to a movie about [and “starring“] Michele Bachmann, I got a couple of notes reminding me about the original interviews with the film’s creator Stephen Bannon.

At the time, Bannon was quite clear Sarah Palin was the inspiration for the movie. In fact, Bannon credits Sarah Palin for igniting this fire and inspiring women to get involved. In hindsight, it seems making this movie is what lit a fire in Bannon’s belly to create The Undefeated, a movie that is causing quite a stir nationwide.

From Fox News:

Documentarian Stephen Bannon has made a film called “Fire From the Heartland” which chronicles the stories of several women important to the conservative movement.

No one had ever touched the topic, and in addition, we did it in a way that let the women speak for themselves,” Bannon told Pop Tarts. “I wanted to pick a cross-section of women who would be emblematic – congresswomen, known commentators, and a cross section of Tea Party activists.

The inspiration for the film came to Bannon, who previously produced “Generation Zero,” when Sarah Palin emerged on the national political scene as John McCain’s vice presidential running mate scene in 2008.

I noticed there is a new generation of young, female activists who are at the forefront of this rebellion who are inspired by Sarah Palin. I wanted to tell their stories and I wanted to do it in a way that could be linked back to the founders of the country – Abigail Adams, the pioneer women, the frontier women, Clare Boothe Luce, Phyllis Schlafly,” Bannon said. “If you look at the conservative rebellion, it is women that are at the vanguard – not men, and that has never happened before in this country.”

Fire From the Heartland” features several key female Republican figures, from congresswoman Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Jean Schmidt of Ohio, to prominent political voices Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. But Bannon credits Palin for “re-awakening” the conservative female movement in the United States, and standing tall against what he calls personal attacks brought on by the entertainment community and liberal media.

Hollywood does not understand Middle America and it certainly does not understand, and in fact, despises, the core values of the country. The elite of Hollywood hold it in tremendous disregard. I could not think higher Governor Palin, she is a force of nature and has inspired a generation of women to really get actively involved in politics and more importantly, take their culture back and take their country back,” he said. “I’ve seen it across the country. These women are incredibly inspired, and were not really politically engaged until Sarah Palin came on the scene.

Fire From the Heartland” was made without Palin’s involvement, but Bannon hopes she makes her way to a screening over the coming weeks.

We made this totally independently of any influence so we could tell our story, but I think Governor Palin would love the film, hopefully we’ll get to show it to her,” Bannon said.

Looking at this year’s midterm elections, Bannon predicted Republican gains, but said no real change can come until the Presidential election of 2012.

I think (Obama) is going down the path of destroying the Democratic Party because he has driven out the moderates, and we’re going to have a huge wave of enthusiasm that brings conservatives back in to at least share power,” he said. “But if anybody thinks that November 2nd is going to change things, they’re fooling themselves. It’s going to be a nasty, nasty two years until the Presidential election of 2012, because right now, all we’re trying to do is really stop his administration in its tracks. We haven’t even begun the types of cuts we have to make in federal spending, the types of restructuring we have to do with the federal budget, what we have to do to rebuild our manufacturing base, are so large that people don’t realize what’s in front of them.”

From Bannon’s interview it’s clear who inspired him to make this film, and who, in Bannon’s opinion, has awakened Conservative women, and inspired them to get involved.

Now I know to some all of this may seem petty, and let me once again state that we haven’t found evidence of Bachmann or her team promoting this as a film about her, but what Citizen’s United is doing is not only dishonest, it’s a slap in the face to everyone featured in this great film.

Citizens United is trying to create the impression this is a brand new film about Bachmann, when in fact, it was created last year. We’re not sure if their motivation is to help Bachmann win Iowa, or simply latch on to her as a way of raising money for their own cause, but does it matter?

Even though Sarah Palin was the inspiration, I’m sure she would be the first to say she wasn’t the “star” of this movie at all. Instead she’s point to the strong women featured in the movie: Ann Coulter, Michelle Easton, Michelle Malkin, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, Dana Loesch, S.E Cupp, Jenny Beth Martin, Jamie Radtke, Sonnie Johnson, Jean Schmidt, Cynthia Lummis, and Michelle Moore.

Sarah Palin would be celebrating all of the strong Conservative women who are making a difference on a daily basis.

“Fire From The Heartland” Is NOT A Movie About, Nor Does It “Star” Michele Bachmann

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 27, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

In 2010 Stephen Bannon and Citizens United Productions released a great movie about Conservative women. While the film certainly mentions Michele Bachmann, and obviously Sarah Palin, the film also features Ann Coulter, Michelle Easton, Michelle Malkin, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, Dana Loesch, S.E Cupp, Jenny Beth Martin, Jamie Radtke, Sonnie Johnson and Michelle Moore. And even though more time is spent on Sarah Palin than Michele Bachmann, it would be just as erroneous to call Sarah the “star” of the movie as it is to call Bachmann the “star.”

Still, this isn’t stopping Citizens United from repackaging the doccumentary and promoting it in Iowa as a film “starring” Bachmann. In fact, they are spending $100,000 dollars promoting this thing.

From Jennifer Jackobs at the Des Moines Register:

A special-interest group is putting up television, billboard and Internet advertisements in Iowa promoting a film about Republican Michele Bachmann.

The ads will give the conservative presidential candidate’s campaign some free exposure during the three weeks before the Iowa straw poll on Aug. 13.

Citizens United – the group that was behind the U.S. Supreme Court case that opened the door for unlimited spending on election ads by corporations, unions and other interest groups – will spend nearly $100,000 on the ad campaign in Iowa, according to a news release.

The ads promote its documentary film “Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman.”

The movie was written and directed by Stephen Bannon, who wrote and directed the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated.”

Starting Monday, the Citizens United TV ads will run on Fox News and other cable channels in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids.

The ad campaign will culminate with a booth at the Ames straw poll on August 13th,” the news release says.

Read more here.

Now to be fair, we don’t see Bachmann promoting this DVD, or claiming to be the star on her website, or Twitter, however, this is obviously a ploy to pump her up after her record has come under increasing scrutiny. It’s also a cheep stunt by Citizens United to sell some DVDs.

Here is Stephen Kruiser’s original write on the movie from premier night, September, 2010:

Filmmaker Steve Bannon and Citizens United Productions are following up “Generation Zero,” their film about the financial meltdown, with a powerful movie about the ascendancy of women in the conservative movement. “Fire From The Heartland” features the distinct and diverse voices of fifteen women who have had an ever-growing impact in government, social media and the Tea Party movement since the 2008 election.

[ …. ]

I saw the movie with a large group of people at last week’s Red State Gathering in Austin, TX. The screening took place only a few hours after I’d gotten to meet and interview Nikki Haley, the mercurial candidate for governor from South Carolina. As we settled in to watch the movie, I looked around to see how many women were in the room. Let’s just say that under-representation wasn’t a problem.

Female voters have long been a demographic that’s been treated like a group-think voting bloc by the Left, with any woman who doesn’t fit the mold (see: Sarah Palin) getting roundly excoriated. As the movie begins with the women describing their backgrounds, a rich variety of experiences and influences emerges immediately.

What unites the distinct voices and personalities becomes apparent when they all begin talking about the Founding Fathers, the Constitution and their views on the role of the federal government in the lives of everyday Americans. The hallmarks of identity politics melt away and it’s clear that these women are all fiercely individual but share a common vision of what this country was intended, and no longer seems, to be.

Having grown up in the supposed age of feminism, I couldn’t help but think that this is probably what it was supposed to look like: strong, independent and successful women who have no interest in hand-wringing victimhood. The Left has Hillary Clinton, a woman who rode her husband’s coattails for a couple of decades before trading her Aggrieved Wife Victim Card for elective office. The Right has Phyllis Schlafly, who still commands attention in the way few men can.

It also has Reps. Michele Bachmann, Jean Schmidt, and Cynthia Lummis working hard within the system. Bachmann’s famous grilling of Timothy Geithner is one of the highlights of the film (and featured in the trailer on the website). The film also features Ann Coulter, Michelle Easton, Michelle Malkin, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, Dana Loesch, S.E Cupp, Jenny Beth Martin, Jamie Radtke, Sonnie Johnson and Michelle Moore. These women represent old and new media and a cross-section of the Tea Party movement. In short, they’re everywhere.

I experienced a quiet mix of embarrassment and gratitude during the screening. It occurred to me that one of the reasons these women have taken such a prominent role in recent years is that so many of the men who were left in charge of the conservative movement failed it and us miserably. Many readers will no doubt say “Conservative men didn’t fail us, Republicans failed us.” The simple fact is that many elected Republican conservatives have been screwing things up since the late 1990s. Now we’re faced with the prospect of having a great November but keeping the good ol’ boy network intact and basically suffering through the same congressional leadership that drove Barack Obama and this Democratic congress into power.

My gratitude is due to the fact that I know so many of these women who are out there having the guts to change the GOP from within and remake it into a conservative party once again. They don’t have the time for third party nonsense and aren’t interested in just sitting around and complaining about the Republicans, like so many men I know on the Right these days. They just want to get something done.

Read more here.

Here’s the original movie trailer:

It’s a real insult to all of the strong women celebrated in this movie for Citizens United to use them and their legacy to promote the candidacy of one of them over any of the others. Especially when it’s the one candidate who is so magnificently not qualified to be president.

Chicago Screening of ‘The Undefeated’ Opens Eyes to Real Governor Palin

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 24, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

Yesterday, The Undefeated paid a trip to Chicago for a one-day showing of the documentary. Here’s what Frank Main of the Chicago Sun-Times had to report:

The Chicago screening of a new Sarah Palin documentary Saturday was a political love fest for her conservative supporters.

But Tea Party members weren’t the only ones who came away from the film with admiration for the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential candidate.

Eddie Bryant, who attended the screening of “The Undefeated” at downtown’s Gene Siskel Film Center, is an African-American and Chicago Democrat. The retired 67-year-old Union Pacific employee said he was surprised to find he actually likes Palin.

“I came because my friend is always talking about Sarah Palin. People say this lady is brainless. She’s not only smart, but she’s a clean-government person. I gained respect for her,” Bryant said.


The director, Stephen K. Bannon, told the audience afterward: “My objective was to drive a stake in the heart of ‘Caribou Barbie,’ ” referring to the airhead image of Palin in the media. He said traditional movie critics have “eviscerated” his film, but he’s shown it to liberal audiences in New York and other cities and they “came out of this with a grudging admiration of what she’s accomplished.”

Read more here.

Mr. Bryant’s reaction is exactly why people need to see this film. Governor Palin is not the person the mainstream media have made her out to be. She’s not really even the person the McCain campaign displayed to the nation–not fully. I believe many in the media see the Governor’s value and are afraid of the threat she is to the left. The McCain campaign, both failing to fully recognize her value and threatened by her appeal, allowed their own sense of insecurity and gross mismanagement to get in the way, as Mr. Chuck Heath said, of “let[ting] Sarah be Sarah.” The Undefeated, however, unveils who this Sarah is, displays what she’s accomplished, and makes it clear that she’s qualified to be President of the United States.

So once again, get your tickets here–and some for others–to see the film. If it’s not showing in your area, vote here to bring it there.

Despite The Corrupt Media’s Best Efforts, “The Undefeated” Has A Phenomenal Opening Weekend

Posted by Gary P Jackson on July 20, 2011

Organize4Palin members in Grapevine, Texas

By Gary P Jackson

So I woke up on Friday morning, the national opening for Stephen Bannon’s hit documentary, The Undefeated, and what do I see? Some cat named Conor Friedersdorf [no wonder he’s bitter] The Atlantic’s pretend “conservative“, phonied up a story about being at the opening of the movie, and no one was there.

The problem with this narrative is this “opening” was at midnight, Thursday night, not advertised, and the movie officially opened on Friday. Yes, I know midnight is technically Friday, but you get where I’m coming from. This bitter little fellow wrote a scathing piece, and of course the rest of the corrupt, blood libel media picked up on it and spread this phony story, hoping to depress turnout. It didn’t work.

As the day rolled on, reports began coming in of sold out shows from coast to coast. Several theaters had to move the film to a larger theater to accommodate the crowds. There were also reports of loud cheering throughout the movie, and in Atlanta, at the end of the movie the audience gave creator Stephen Bannon a five minute standing ovation!

The media was still trying to keep it’s meme going though, with many local stations just flat out lying about the movie and attendance numbers. CNN sent it’s crew to the Atlanta opening trying to ambush attendees.

Reuters dismissed the first sold out show reported, in Grapevine, Texas as insignificant, because “Grapevine is just a small town.” Yeah it’s a “small town” located in the middle of the Dallas-Ft Worth Metroplex. Dallas is the 9th largest city in America, and Ft Worth the 17th. Their combined population, not counting the couple dozen [or more] “small towns” that lie between and around the two cities, the Metroplex combined population is roughly equal to Houston’s, the 4th largest city in the country.So much for Reuters.

As there were two theaters in Texas showing The Undefeated Grapevine and Houston, people had good choices. Both locations drew people from hundreds of miles away. The Grapevine location drew people from Oklahoma and Louisiana, as well as Central Texas, which is over 100 miles away. Houston drew people from South Texas and the Beaumont-Orange area. A nice little drive.

As we watched throughout the day, more and more reports came in as enthusiastic fans filled the seats. While everyone focused on the prime time showings, the ones sure to sell out, we also noticed in many cities the afternoon showings either sold out, or were only a handful of seats away from doing so. This enthusiasm would carry over to Saturday, when even more shows sold out.

Percentage wise, only Harry Potter had a better opening weekend than The Undefeated. This is amazing because Victory Films did no traditional advertising. This was all done via the internet and word of mouth. The Twitter campaign alone was incredible. Obviously Palin supporters worked hard to make this happen as well, knowing this movie is a game changer, and tells the story that no one but long time, hard core supporters know. And even for the long timers, this movie reveals more about Sarah Palin and what an excellent chief executive she is.

There were all kinds of stories of people dragging non-Palin supporters with them to the movie, and many converts being made. Notably one Conservative blogger, Ben Howe, one of the folks who actually believed the corrupt media’s version of Sarah, rather than the truth, has said that both he and his wife felt nothing but shame after seeing the movie, because they now realize how wrong they were to believe the media, and the GOP establishment’s narrative.

This past weekend was nothing short of phenomenal. Bannon is now talking about a larger nationwide roll-out, as well as a deal with Wal-Mart to distribute DVDs.

There was a lot of great reporting this weekend. Here are some links you should check out:

Top of the Ticket: Sarah Palin documentary ‘The Undefeated’ to roll out to other cities 

Ian Lazaran CNN Concedes the Auditorium Where the Undefeated Was Shown Near Atlanta “Was Packed” and “Sold Out”

Then there is this from Ben Howe: ‘The Undefeated’ Review: A Profoundly Important Game-changer (Especially For Me) Howe was not a Palin supporter when he saw the movie. [on DVD] He had bought into the nonsense spewed by the left, and the Republican elite.

Ultimately, I thought she was the type of political force that was going to be around, needed to be treaded on carefully, but would never have anything substantial to offer to the cause of conservatism other than rallying troops which I still believed was a valuable service.

I thought she hadn’t gotten a fair shake in the media, but I felt confident that I could see through the bias and that I understood who she was, what she had done and what my opinion would probably be about her going forward.

I was entirely incorrect.

I consider the director of “The Undefeated”, Stephen Bannon, to be a friend of mine. He’s advised me in my own fledgling productions. I’ve interviewed him a handful of times on my podcast and we always talk for over an hour effortlessly. When I heard he was making this film, I immediately wanted to interview him, but I assumed that everything I knew about Palin would simply be confirmed by watching this.

We popped the film into our DVD player, and sat back to watch. One thing I had no doubts about was that Stephen Bannon would make a visually impressive, compelling film that would stir emotion. I was pleased to see that he used his trademark method of letting the people directly tied to the events tell the story (I often find narration cumbersome) adding their own particular emotions and perspectives to the narrative. These were all things that I expected and Bannon did not disappoint.

The film moves at a breakneck pace while still laying out a level of detail that brings you so close to the events, you feel like you personally experienced them.

Even had the substance not convinced me that I had Mrs. Palin pegged wrong, the film itself would most certainly have scored high for me as my all important test was passed: Did I look at my watch? No I did not.

In short, the execution of this film is excellent.

But what had me and my wife blown away by the time it was over, was the avalanche of information and perspectives that had been hidden from us over the years. As I would like for you to listen to my interview with Steve, I will not get into the substance of what caused the change. I want you to hear it for yourself.

I pride myself on my ability to know when something is baloney, almost instinctively. On Sarah Palin, I was so incredibly hoodwinked that the one word that my wife and I agreed described how we felt after watching it, was shame. Yes of course invigoration, satisfaction and all the other things you experience when watching a good film, but about how we had handled our vetting of Mrs. Palin, shame was the word that best described it.

Shame for not bothering to look up her record. Shame for not reading her story. Shame for turning the channel when she came on the TV. Shame for not listening to people that we had a great deal of respect for like Andrew Breitbart, Tammy Bruce, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

As Breitbart points out in the film, the greatest shame is that while this woman was savaged to degrees you may not even realize yet, some of us sat back and let it happen. For me to buy into the media template and not defend someone who’s only offense was being a conservative, is the absolute antithesis of what I stand for, and something that I shall never allow to happen again.

Read more and listen to Ben’s great interview with Stephen Bannon here

The bottom line is this movie, in a short time, with nothing but word of mouth advertising, via Twitter and Facebook, is a great success.

It is indeed a game changer. Palin supporters are making a point of taking their non-Palin supporting friends and neighbors to see the movie. Not only are these folks seeing the real Sarah Palin for the first time, they are learning why they should support Sarah. You can bet these converts will go out and find other people to convert as well. This is why the media has been working so hard to make people think no one is going to see the movie, or that the movie sucks. They understand just how powerful Bannon’s movie is, as well as how powerful Sarah Palin is.

Bannon made this movie because our media is corrupt, and carries the water for Obama and the democrat party, and lie about important events that effect the nation. The actions by this corrupt media this weekend prove his point.

The Undefeated is showing at these 10 theaters throughout the week. There are multiple showings daily, and senior discounts. If you haven’t yet seen The Undefeated go, and take a few friends. To check show times, order tickers, and so on, click here.

Scurrying Like Roaches in the Light

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 15, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

Most of us have probably not spent a lot of time studying the habits of insects, and even if we were so inclined, roaches would surely be the last ones we’d be drawn to investigating. There’s one thing about roaches that probably everyone knows, however: they don’t like light; it sends them in a million directions. Thus the expression someone is “scurrying like roaches in the light.”

Now, I don’t know how much personal will a roach has, but apparently they are rather persistent in their determination to resist being in the presence of light. I also don’t know how much brain power roaches have, so I have no idea if they take off running because they know they’ll be exposed–and ultimately destroyed–or if light just makes them uncomfortable. Whatever the case, light certainly throws them into a panic, as evidenced by their behavior. There’s no pretense, either; they unashamedly prefer the darkness.

Speaking of light, The Undefeated premieres tomorrow. Governor Palin’s supporters have been looking forward to this day. So have others who, though not supporters, have a genuine appreciation for the truth. Some people, however, don’t share that same enthusiasm or respect for facts. On the contrary, they despise it.

They’re panicking.

In typical roach fashion, as the light of Governor Palin’s record is about to shine brightly for all to see, they’re scurrying like roaches. Running in every direction, they’re doing everything in their power to avoid exposure. Light brings revelation, and they cannot handle revelation. It destroys what they’ve worked so hard to achieve. They’ve created, encouraged, and feasted on lies, and they’ve relied on never being found out. Everything seemed to be working in their favor, too. They had the left, some on the right, and the mainstream media in their corner, aiding and abetting their sinister deeds. They are the left, some on the right, and the mainstream media, in most cases. They did not have the foresight to imagine that the truth would emerge in the form of a Stephen Bannon documentary which would destroy their false narratives and outright lies. They expected these to forever go undetected as they chewed away at the Governor’s record and future. They thought they’d have the freedom, like roaches in the night, to roam and eat undisturbed, that she would at least go away and not come back. It’s taken them a while to figure it out, but as they have become increasingly aware that they were wrong, that the light has come and opened eyes and enlightened minds, they’re panicking.

Why do I say this?

We have been anticipating the release of The Undefeated for some time now. We’ve been waiting, getting the word out, expecting this film to be a definite game-changer. In the meantime, reviews have been written, interviews have been conducted, and previous skeptics have admitted that their opinion of Governor Palin changed upon learning the facts presented in the screening.

Today, it opens in ten cities. The lightswitch has been flipped, and the script is about to do the same. As if they know their end is near, the roaches have already begun to scurry. I saw the scurrying first-hand yesterday via Twitter. Out of the blue, the tweets were coming to me from people I don’t know and have never, to my knowledge, conversed with–attacking the film as “propaganda”; declaring Governor Palin is “history”; accusing her of “fear-mongering”; saying The Undefeated is a bunch of “lies” so they will never go see it; you know, scurrying like roaches as the light approaches. Obviously, the information in the film is a matter of public record; therefore, calling the movie lies is simply…well, a lie itself. What she accomplished as she served Alaska over the past 20 years is well-documented. I did engage these PDS-sufferers a little bit by responding to some tweets (Sometimes I just can’t help myself!), but not too deeply, for it’s hard to pin down scurrying, panicky roaches for too long.

Is it just the film debut that’s got the PDS-sufferers all wee-wee’d up? I believe there’s one more thing that has them running in every direction now. On Wednesday night, Governor Palin told Sean Hannity that a 2012 announcement is imminent. Could their worst fears have come upon them? Is it possible that the one they attacked, the one whose record they tried to sully, the one they worked unceasingly to destroy but couldn’t–yes, the undefeated one– might just be the one to take on the GOP machine, the 2012 Republican candidates, and ultimately the so-called anointed one? Is it possible that the truth of her record, so ably communicated in The Undefeated, will help make this next step that much more likely to be a success?

Roaches thrive in the dark, but they cannot tolerate the light. When it comes, they scurry. In other words, they get all wild and crazy. They try anything to keep themselves alive and their infestation preserved. They crave the darkness again. The problem for them, however, is that darkness doesn’t really exist. What we call darkness is simply the absence of light, but once light comes, we see more clearly, we understand better, and we act accordingly. Light has come. The Undefeated is light. Governor Palin’s 2012 announcement will be light. The roaches don’t like it, and they’re already scurrying manically, but it’s too late. Their fate has been sealed.

‘The Undefeated’ Challenge

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 5, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

The more I think about the film The Undefeated, the more excited I become at its potential. Put yourself in Governor Palin’s shoes. You spend 20 years in public service. You start out at the bottom with no desire other than to make a positive impact. You achieve success through hard work, not special favors. You tolerate no corruption, regardless of political party or pressure. You cut spending, slice taxes, stimulate business, and uphold the state Constitution. Your hard work earns you an approval rating of almost 90%. You’re praised as Governor Exemplar among governors. You’re then asked if you want to help change history by running on the ticket with Republican Presidential candidate Senator John McCain, a feat no other woman had ever attained, just as no other woman had ever been governor of Alaska. You offer yourself up in the name of service, and hit the campaign trail wide open.

The love that had been heaped upon you sours and turns to hatred and fear when the mainstream media sees you as a threat to the ascendancy of Barack Obama, heir to the American throne. To keep people oblivious to the truth of all that you had accomplished, they invest time demonizing you, attacking you, even trying to ignore you at times, although that doesn’t work too well, for PDS simply doesn’t allow for cold-turkey breakups. They create–or zero in on–a number of “gates,” such as Troopergate, Babygate, Clothinggate, Ethicsgate, Boobgate, Boogate, Visorgate, Blackgate, Emailgate, just to name a few.

After two decades and an impressive record, this is the thanks they gave Governor Palin. The greatest injustice, however, besides the attack on her family, is the attack on her record, no doubt. What we have spent our lives doing matters to us. The media, the left, and many on the right worked tirelessly to keep the light off what she’s managed to accomplish, knowing that the truth would wreck their political agendas, put an end to politics-as-usual, and destroy the various and sundry narratives they’ve worked so hard to create.

Nothing they have done has caused the Governor to sit down and shut up, however. Instead, she continues to fight for a restoration of America’s founding principles. To help matters, as if in answer to prayer, along comes Stephen Bannon with a documentary which has been heralded as a game-changer. The Undefeated is the truth on screen. It’s a knockout punch. It’s the refusal to allow others to rewrite a person’s history. The Undefeated is a movie that absolutely must be seen. It’s the story of Governor Palin’s career, so we know she’s done her part. Stephen Bannon and his team have done their part. Now, we must do our part.

So I challenge you, as I challenge me. Let’s ask ourselves the following questions: How much have we done to promote this movie? How many tickets have we bought that we will hand out to those we know need to see te film? Yes, that means people who aren’t her supporters–yet. As I reviewed here, everyone needs to see this documentary. Are we on Facebook and Twitter encouraging people to buy tickets? Do we actually believe The Undefeated can make a difference? If not, then we’re ignoring the plethora of reviews that attest to the power of this movie.

Governor Palin has some of the most active, enthusiastic supporters in the nation. Our support is based on the truth of who she is, what she has done, and what we know she can do. Let’s take that knowledge to more people. Let’s sell out these theaters, and let’s do everything in our power to get the message of her record to every person we can. If your answers to the questions I asked are positive and your efforts have been many, I issue yet another challenge to us all: go further, dig deeper, and work harder. We can help get the job done.

Ross Review: ‘The Undefeated’ is for You

Posted by Adrienne Ross on June 22, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

I applaud Stephen Bannon for doing the hard research, investing his hard-earned money, and revealing the hard facts that resulted in The Undefeated. His efforts allow us, the viewers, to take a pilgrimage with him into Governor Palin’s successful career in politics. I applaud him, yes.

However, I will applaud more vehemently those who have the guts to see the documentary, especially those who admit they only know her through the media, those who have dismissed her as both undignified and unqualified to hold any meaningful office, and those who have been more comfortable lambasting her than learning about her. I will applaud them for being men and women enough to choose truth over childish narratives that have become the meat and drink of many a critic.

Tonight, I got a closer look into the career of Governor Palin as I was honored to preview this movie that has been heralded as a game-changer. Some have claimed that while The Undefeated will further endear her to her supporters, it will do nothing to change the minds of those not in her corner. I beg to differ. Having seen the documentary, I agree with the assessment of the people who have said this is a film for those who are on the fence. However, I’ll take it even further and say it’s also a film for those who heretofore have been dead-set against her. Disagree that a two-hour film can so drastically impact a person? Well then, I submit the same challenge Lisa Mei Norton did in her Big Hollywood article: I dare you to go see it. Anyone with a shred of decency, even just one honest bone in his body, wants truth, not propaganda. The Undefeated provides the truth about Governor Palin’s record that has purposely been hidden, distorted, or ignored.

The film leaves no doubt as to Governor Palin’s well-documented accomplishments. It reveals her as one of the “ordinary, hardworking people.” It shows that with a servant’s heart, a steel spine, and a sense of purpose, everyone can make a difference–even a hockey mom who simply loved her state more than she loved her own comfort, who was willing to take on the Corrupt Bastards Club, the establishment, and the unbelievers to battle for free enterprise, energy, and ethics. The film highlights the mayor who, through a commitment to developing infrastructure, made Wasilla into a booming business town; “the unpolitician” who, as governor, confronted and defeated the politics of big oil, took a red pen to the budget, and forward-funded public education; and the V.P. candidate whose love for America was only a reflection of her love for Alaska.

Through footage of her swearing-in ceremony in Fairbanks, we see the new governor upholding the same values she does today. It’s clear that she has not morphed into another creature now that she’s on the national stage. No, she promised her constituents all those years ago to fight on the side of competition, ethics in “your” government, and fiscal restraint for the benefit of our children’s future. She insisted then, as she does today, that more government isn’t the answer.

We see a governor hard at work with AOGCC, ACES, and AGIA. We see her doing what no one else had been able to do for 30 years in securing the TransCanada Alaska deal, taking this important resource development “from pipe dream to pipeline.”

The Undefeated doesn’t hold back the raw, vile attacks against Governor Palin, either. It places front and center the death wishes, the vulgar, sexually explicit language, and the Alinsky tactics used against her to derail her effectiveness as governor upon her return from the 2008 election campaign. It leaves no doubt why she resigned and why it was the only right thing that she could do, although it meant sacrificially handing over a job she loved. The unfounded, frivolous ethics complaints, although dismissed, were both paralyzing and bankrupting Alaska, so she stepped aside and allowed Sean Parnell to take over. She had always done what was best for Alaska. This was no different.

Governor Palin’s stellar record, accomplishments, and expertise reveal a public figure who earned unparalleled approval ratings, worked tirelessly for the people, and made history in the process. The film shows someone who has done much already, yet has too much more to give to pack it in now. She is, without question, prepared to be President, and The Undefeated gives us the sense that she may just be heading in that direction, despite the attacks against her character and her record.

The Undefeated will further inspire the millions of Americans who were already, at the very least, acquainted with her record. However, it is a must-see for those who know that a person’s record is as tied as anything else to the person herself and therefore necessitates an honest, unbiased evaluation. It is mandatory viewing for those who want to make informed, intelligent decisions about the future of our nation and those who seek to lead it. Furthermore, it beckons those who simply care about truth and aren’t afraid to be confronted with it. In other words, my message to America is this: whether, when you consider Governor Palin, you identify as a supporter, an undecided, or even a self-proclaimed hater, this film is for you. Have the courage to watch it with an open mind, and be bold enough to take someone with you; the undeniable, unfiltered, and undefeated truth will take care of the rest.
