Palin: No New Taxes: “We’ll Be Watching!”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 13, 2013

Palin_amflag_speech

Gov. Palin has penned a piece over at Breitbart  in which she artfully  makes the case as to why we are “Taxed Enough Already” and issues a warning to D.C. politicians on their votes for this compromised budget bill– “We’ll be watching.”

From Breitbart:

No one can argue with the fact that Paul Ryan’s compromise budget bill raises taxes and increases spending. Show me one Republican who got elected on that platform. Spare America the Orwellian word games. If the government is taking money out of your pocket to fund its growing Big Brother operations, it’s a tax. Whether money is taken from you via your phone bill, your airline ticket, or your income, it’s a tax. If politicians can’t be honest about this, it’s time to go home.

The TEA Party’s very acronym stands for “Taxed Enough Already.” We sent these politicians to Congress in an historic landslide election in 2010 with a mandate to stop the runaway spending train bankrupting our nation, not to wave to it from the station or – heaven forbid – increase its speed. And yet, here we are still pretending that there are no real world consequences to running up near trillion dollar deficits year after year with no end in sight.

So, where does this leave us? We can sit back and accept the increased spending “Compromised Plan” with increases in taxes and spending, or we can charge ahead to at least preserve the very modest Sequester cuts American workers already fought for. If we go with the first option, we simply kick the can down the road yet again and wait for the inevitable real world consequences of bankruptcy (see Detroit for an example of what’s in store). Or we can go with the second option and probably get clobbered by the media (so what’s new?!).

The Political Establishment will no doubt tell us that a budget battle will distract us from the fight against Obamacare. But that excuse is just the latest variation in the Establishment’s old canard that they’re keeping their powder dry for the next big battle which never seems to materialize because they’re always too busy waving the white flag and following the path of least resistance until election day.

Enough is enough!

Here’s the deal, folks. The media will clobber us no matter what. We do not want more taxes. We want Congress to rein in spending and live within its means. (What’s so radical about that?!) Americans have gotten quite an education recently in wasteful government spending as we’ve all seen how the federal government can blow a billion dollars on a website that doesn’t work.

Do these members of Congress really think they can justify every tax dollar they spend and still demand more from hard working Americans by increasing our taxes?

2014 is just around the corner. If any member of Congress thinks raising taxes and increasing wasteful spending is a winning strategy to run on, then by all means they should vote for the Ryan budget. We’ll be watching.

Palin: “I Had To Buck The System”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 9, 2013

Sarah Palin appeared as a guest on the Sean Hannity Radio Show in the 4 o’clock hour today.  Palin talks Tea Party, taking on establishment Republicans (bucking the system), 2014 mid-terms, and the importance of looking for “new blood and new energy” candidates.

Palin: “We See the Corruption at the Heart of Big Government”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 10, 2013

Sarah_palin18
I sense that the pot is about to boil over.  Americans want answers on what transpired in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.  (Sorry folks but entirely too many stories to link and besides, you should be well aware of this one.) Americans are confused as to why a Muslim Cleric would be allowed to “disparage and damn” the bodies of Seal Team Six members, and now we find out that the so-called “paranoia” of conservative and Tea Party Group audits and other IRS difficulties was indeed real.  Stories here, here, and here.

In response to the IRS revelation, Governor Palin offered the following commentary on her Facebook page:

Let the Light Shine

Today we learned that our government targeted and harassed conservative Americans who simply wanted to be involved in the national discussion. Is it any wonder why Americans are so distrustful of D.C.? I’m sure President Obama is grateful for all the help the IRS gave his reelection campaign, but, still, you have to wonder how the bureaucrats who tried to pull this off can sleep at night.

So many Americans knew this was happening, but many felt defenseless and even helpless against a government that seems to roll along without accountability or sense of obligation to the people it’s supposed to serve. These Americans were mocked for being concerned about this, but now we see light shining on the truth, finally.

This IRS revelation is another step in the unraveling of the Obama administration’s self-proclaimed “hope and change.” Between the Benghazi cover-up and the IRS targeting Obama’s political opponents, we see the corruption at the heart of big government.

Americans should remember that this same corrupt IRS will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare. And this same inept and corrupt government will supposedly secure our now unsecured borders in advance of immigration reform and will implement a completely ethical and non-political IPAB panel to make life and death health care decisions for you and your family. Forgive me for not trusting these big government promises any more than I trust the White House’s latest Benghazi spin or the IRS’ fairness.

Despite all of this, I still believe that this “fundamental transformation of America” is temporary. This attempted transformation into a disheartened, weakened, unrecognizable nation is so far below anything Americans deserve. It becomes permanent only if we throw up our hands and surrender to the corruption and cover-ups.

We must demand more light shine on all that’s transpiring in D.C.’s self-absorbed bubble. On the IRS scandal, we must have accountability and a full investigation. On Benghazi, Speaker Boehner must create a Select Committee with full investigative and subpoena authority to get to the bottom of the cover-up. Keep the faith, friends.

- Sarah Palin

It’s not always easy but I’m keepin’ the faith Guv.

Tea Party Plea to Sarah Palin

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 18, 2013

ImageAs of recent, Sarah Palin has been much too quiet and folks are taking notice.  The owner or one of the administrators of Facebook page “The Tea Party”  posted an open letter to Sarah Palin imploring her to  speak up and get more involved again now that the current administration is attacking our second amendment rights.  This little request by The Tea Party has created an avalanche of messages on Palin’s Facebook page from “we the people” who are simply fed up with both parties.  Sample posts here, here, and here. At time of writing, this “Dear Sarah” letter has been shared in excess of 23,400 times and has received more than 153,000 “likes”.

Following is from The Tea Party Facebook page:

Dear Sarah:

We’ve missed you. We know you spend a lot of time with your family now and are on Fox News a lot, but we think it is time for “Momma Grizzly” to make an appearance again. Who better than you who grew up with all kinds of firearms to get involved again and lead a movement to protect the 2nd Amendment. Since many republicans in Congress are too weak-kneed to stand up to a tyrannical Constitution breaking President, maybe it’s high time for you to come to Washington and take down some of these corrupt gun grabbing politicians just like you did in Alaska by showing them why Americans have an ABSOLUTE 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and it “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” upon as the US Constitution states. It will drive the left absolutely CRAZY for you to get involved and stand up to Obama and his executive orders. Give us a shout and let us know you are in!

Click “LIKE” if you are against the President forcing 23 presidential “actions” on you without the consent of Congress, to limit your 2nd amendment rights

So Sarah, what say you?

Palin Laid Out a 5-Point Plan to Restore America’s Economy in her Indianola, Iowa Speech

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 30, 2012

Videos retrieved from 

On the third anniversary of her amazing RNC speech as the 2008 vice presidential nominee, Governor Palin delivered a compelling speech at the Restoring America rally in Indianola, Iowa.  At that time, she appeared to be considering a run for the Presidency, and her remarks during the speech led many to believe that.  Natalie Nichols gave a firsthand account of that day and the meet-up of Palin supporters the night before.

Sarah Palin arrived to a packed house in the farm-themed “Machine Shed Restaurant” in Urbandale, IA Friday night. The ever-amassing crowd began arriving at about 6:30 p.m. to congregate and socialize with fellow “Palinistas” from across the country. Supporters stood around talking and catching up, many long time online-friends were meeting for the first time in person. The atmosphere was more like a family reunion than a political gathering. There were children playing, doting parents, young professionals, and the elderly maneuvering through the crowd with the assistance of canes. I encountered people like myself and my family, who had driven in from Dallas, TX, those who had flown in from Virginia, some who hailed from Florida, Georgia natives, Iowa hometown fans, and even a woman from the president’s neck of the woods, Hawaii.

The meet and greet went on for an hour and a half when the front entry way suddenly began to buzz. When the camera crews darted for the doors, all eyes turned to see that those “Guess who’s coming to dinner” rumors were true…Sarah was in the building. She had a twinkle in her eye as she greeted those whose lucky positioning had placed them in the right place at the right time. She shook hands and held mini-conversations with her loyal supporters. She asked people where they were from and asked about their families…and she waited for the answers.

[...]

Palin continued to make her way through the crowd to the dining room which was already full. She worked the room and visited with those who had come out to join together to support her in her endeavors. Unlike the typical “politician,” Palin held real conversations with those present.

Saturday morning saw the arrival of even more Palinistas to Indianola for the Restoring America Event, featuring Governor Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker. They began arriving around 6:30 a.m. At that point the weather was great. As the morning wore on, they felt a sprinkle or two. And around 11 AM it started raining, and raining, and raining. One might have assumed that there would have been a mass exodus. But to the contrary, those who came prepared with a poncho donned the vinyl suits. Those with umbrellas held them high. Those who could fit, huddled under one of several open tents for shelter. And those who did none of the above just put on their best patriotic smiles, awaiting the arrival of the keynote speaker, Sarah Palin. The crowd was so dedicated that many of the people stood in the torrential downpour. All of those I asked quickly forgot about how soaked they were when Sarah Palin took to the stage. They repeatedly interrupted her with chants of “Run, Sarah, Run!” and “Sa-rah, Sa-rah!”

“We’re not celebrating red America or blue America! We’re celebrating red, white and blue America!” said Palin of a conversation she and husband Todd Palin had after leaving supporters at The Machine Shed in Urbandale, Iowa the previous night. She spoke about some of her own experiences, referring to the “sudden and relentless reform” she brought about during her tenure as Governor of Alaska early on in the speech. Those who don’t follow Palin closely may not realize that one of the sections of the documentary, The Undefeated, was called ‘Sudden and Relentless Reform’.

As the speech went on, a very notable correlation was drawn between the person Sarah Palin thinks is needed to restore America and the one she just described as having fought crony capitalism in Alaska since entering public service 20 years ago. Palin began to describe what she believes is needed in this way, “It’s not enough to change uniforms. If we don’t change the team and the game plan, we won’t save our country…we need sudden and relentless reform…and that requires deeds not just words.”

Palin has been criticized in the past as being simply a political celebrity, not qualified to run the country, and someone lacking a real plan. On the 3rd anniversary of her famous RNC speech accepting the Republican Vice Presidential nomination, Sarah Palin sought to put those criticisms to rest. She gave a hard hitting speech which hit on some of what she calls “real reform” and was able to accomplish during her tenure as Governor. She spoke about her years as a public servant and highlighted her specialized experience in the energy sector, while at the same time contrasting that with what she says are failed policies of the current administration. And finally she laid out a five point plan of “real solutions” and “the way forward.”

Palin explained, “We’re going to speak truth today. It may be hard hitting, but we’re gonna speak truth today. Because we need to start talking about what hasn’t worked and we’re gonna start talking about what will work for America…So let’s talk about real solutions.” She went on to say “I wanna tell you what my plan is!”

With those eight words, Palin announced what many believe is the beacon of hope for America; the staple of a potential Presidential campaign, her plan.

1st Let’s enforce the 10th Amendment! Devolve powers back locally where the founders intended them to be.

2nd We must repeal Obamacare and reign in burdensome regulations that are a boot on our neck. Let the private sector breathe and grow.

3rd We must prioritize and cut. Cancel unused stimulus funds and have that come to Jesus moment where we own up to the debt challenge that is entitlement reform. The status quo is no longer an option. Entitlement reform is our duty now and it must be done I n a way that honors our commitment to our esteemed elders today while keeping faith with future generations.

4th It is time for America to become the energy super power. The real stimulus that we’ve been waiting for is robust and responsible domestic energy production. We have the resources. Affordable secure energy is the key to any thriving economy and it must be our foundation. Drill here, drill now, let the refineries and the pipelines be built stop kowtowing to foreign countries and dictators… We need to move on tapping our own God given resources that are part of our reserve. I promise you this will bring real job growth. There are enough…projects just waiting in the wings, waiting for government approval that could create more than a million high paying jobs all across the US and this is true stimulus. America’s economic revival starts with America’s energy revival.

5th To make America the most attractive and competitive place to do business, to set up shop here, and hire people here, to attract capital from all over the globe that will lead to an explosion of growth instead of chasing industry offshore. I propose to eliminate all corporate income tax, and hear me out on this…this is how we create millions of high paying jobs, this is how we increase opportunity and prosperity for all. But here’s the best part to balance out any loss from this tax cut we eliminate corporate welfare and all the loopholes and we eliminate bailouts. This is how we break the back of crony capitalism because it feeds off corporate welfare which is just socialism for the very rich. We can change all of that. The message then to job creating corporations is that ‘yeah we’ll unshackle you from the world’s highest taxes, but you stand or fall on your own just like all the rest of us out on Main Street.

Let us seek that hand once more…We will fight for freedom, we will fight for America. We are at the tipping point. United we must stand and we shall nobly save, not meanly lose this last best hope on Earth!

 {…]

As she exited stage right, Tea Party of America’s Judd Saul took us back stage for the final moments with the Governor. She made sure to spend some time with a few men in uniform before she and Todd got into their black SUV and rode away. But I had one final question that I just had to ask. I had to know if all the critics and haters in the media were having their desired effect on her, or, as I suspected, was it actually having an opposite effect and making her want to fight back even harder? She put her pen down, her eyes brightened up, a smile spread across her face and in her usual feisty manner that so many have come to love, she said “Heck ya! That’s that independent Alaskan, pioneering, fighting spirit pushing back!”

She didn’t say the words, but in what she did say and the excitement with which she said it, I swear I could almost hear her recite a line from one of her famous speeches:

“Mr. President, Game On!”

Move America Forward: Support Martha Zoller Next Week in Runoff Election

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 17, 2012

New ad for Martha Zoller (runoff is August 21) from Move America Forward Freedom PAC (MAFPAC):

PLEASE JOIN SARAH PALIN, NEWT GINGRICH, RICK SANTORUM AND HERMAN CAIN IN SUPPORTING MARTHA ZOLLER

SHE NEEDS HELP TO DEFEAT ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE


A poll released this week shows Tea Party favorite and MAFPAC candidate Martha Zoller in a tight race, but leading the establishment candidate by 4 points.  With the help of great Patriots like yourself and buoyed by endorsements from conservative heroes Sarah Palin, RIck Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain, Zoller forced the runoff election, set for this coming Tuesday, to determine the Republican candidate and likely next representative in Congress from Georgia’s heavily conservative 9th district.

We only have until Tuesday, August 21st to help her get elected and fill another seat with a pro-Troop candidate we can count on!!

Martha Needs Your Help Now!!

 

“If you agree that it’s time our elected officials stopped talking at us and started listening to us, then I hope you will join me in supporting Martha Zoller for Congress from Georgia’s 9th Congressional District…Martha has been fighting for conservative causes for years as an award winning radio show host.

- Former Alaska Governor
Sarah Palin


The below article makes clear there is a difference in this race, even though both candidates are attempting to portray themselves as more conservative.  One candidate, Martha Zoller, is backed by modern conservative heroes and has the majority of military and Tea Party support, while her opponent polls over 50% of the “moderate” voters.  
The choice is clear. 

Ga Dist. 9: Zoller leads Collins according to recent poll

August 13, 2012
By: Ewa Kochanska

Latest poll in Georgia’s 9th Congressional District Republican State Primary runoff election puts radio talk show host Martha Zoller ahead of her challenger state Rep. Doug Collins by four percent.

The Wenzel Strategies survey found Zoller with 43% of the vote and Collins with 39%, a lead just above the margin of error…

According to the survey, Collins is favored by more moderate voters (54%-34%) and Zoller gets majority of TEA Party votes (48%-31%).

Examiner.Com – 8/13/12

It’s not every day you get to help one of your best friends get elected to the U.S. Congress, and we have known Martha very well over the years and we know she will never waver in her support for our military.

We know she stands up for the Troops and our military and we know she holds strong to her conservative values.  That is why we support her for Congress and that is why leaders such as Sarah Palin do as well.  
Melanie Morgan, MAF’s chairman, along with Martha Zoller and a handpicked team of radio professionals from across the country, traveled to Baghdad, Iraq where they spent over a week interviewing troops at Camp Liberty to get the story straight from the source.


The Voices of Soldiers project earned awards from Associated Press for best special program and Martha Zoller shared in that.

She was so moved by her experiences in Iraq that year that the next year she went back again, this time to bring a grieving family to the place where their son gave his life for his country.

Martha has always been a stalwart supporter of our troops – that’s what we liked about her in the first place, and that’s why we brought her to Iraq in 2005. She’s always stood up for our military men and women, even when it was not the popular thing to do. Back in 2005 and 2006 when it seemed everyone was trashing the war, Martha stood by groups like Move America Forward in defending our troops and their missions overseas.

That’s why we’re proud and excited to ask for your help in supporting her campaign now.

At MAF we have long DREAMED of having more people like Martha Zoller in Congress. She’s exactly the kind of person we have always wanted to run for office, and she’s finally decided to do so. Please make a donation now and help our friend Martha Zoller.

Governor Palin, Mitt Romney, and the 2012 Republican National Convention

Posted by Adrienne Ross on July 15, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

With the Republican National Convention at the end of August in Tampa, many have wondered what role Governor Palin will play. Just a smidgen of common sense would tell Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment that she needs to have a significant role there. The former Vice Presidential candidate should be addressing the audience in a speech that would surely electrify, something Romney simply isn’t able to do. If Romney is as bright as some say he is, he should surely be insisting on such a thing. So far he has not.

Via Peter J. Boyer (emphasis added):

Queries to the Romney camp about any possible Palin role at the convention meet with a stony silence. Palin does not seem surprised. “What can I say?” she responded in an email from Alaska, when asked by Newsweek about the convention, just before heading to Michigan to deliver an Obama-thumping speech. “I’m sure I’m not the only one accepting consequences for calling out both sides of the aisle for spending too much money, putting us on the road to bankruptcy, and engaging in crony capitalism.”

“In accepting those consequences,” she added, “one must remember this isn’t Sadie Hawkins and you don’t invite yourself and a date to the Big Dance.”

[...]

The Romney camp will not comment on Palin, or on plans for the convention, but one adviser associated with the campaign suggested that Palin would be prohibited from speaking at the Republican convention by her contract with Fox News. “It’s true I’m prohibited from doing some things,” Palin says, “but this is the first I’ve heard anyone suggest that as an excuse, er, reason to stay away from engaging in the presidential race. I’m quite confident Fox’s top brass would never strip anyone of their First Amendment rights in this regard.” (Fox says her contract would not prohibit speaking at the convention if she sought permission.)

Palin is keeping the dates open in late August, just in case. In any event, she says, she plans to be politically active between now and November, starting with a Michigan Tea Party appearance, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity. “No matter the Romney campaign strategy,” she says, “I intend to do all I can to join others in motivating the grassroots made up of independents and constitutional conservatives who can replace Barack Obama at the ballot box.”

[...]

Team Romney may be well advised to consider bringing Palin inside the tent. Whether she’s in Tampa for the convention or not, she will be out there somewhere, and talking.

This is Boyer’s take, and he clearly knows the power Governor Palin has and the enthusiasm she inspires. So what are the folks saying? Do they agree? Here are a couple snippets from the article to answer those questions:

“Romney’s just not a fighter,” says Jenny Beth Martin, head of the Tea Party Patriots, the largest of the activist groups. “That’s why it would be good for him to have someone like Palin speaking at the convention. He needs to do something to rile up his base, to make them enthusiastic. And I don’t mean just the Tea Party. I mean die-hard Republicans. I live in the second-most-Republican county in the state of Georgia, and the folks around here are not enthusiastic about him.”

“Palin is the female Ronald Reagan of our time,” says Kremer of the Tea Party Express. “There’s no one that excites the base, and energizes the base, the way that Sarah Palin does. There’s just not.”

Boyer himself adds:

Palin would certainly light up the base at the convention—her 2008 vice-presidential acceptance speech was, in terms of partisan enthusiasm, the high-water mark of the McCain campaign

The Republican National Convention will be held August 27th through August 30th in Tampa, Florida.

Gov. Palin: $20 Million Contract for Obamacare Propaganda is Crony Capitalism on Steroids

Posted by Dr. Fay on May 23, 2012

Governor Palin talked to Greta Van Susteren  On The Record last night.  Greta asked her opinion on the $20 million contract HHS has awarded a PR firm to promote and explain Obamacare.  They both agreed that this should not be done before the Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare,  a decision that should be forthcoming in about 4 weeks.  Governor Palin described the propaganda piece as  “one of the stupidest things I’ve heard coming out of the Obama administration.”   She thought that it probably violates procurement  and other laws pertaining to government contracts.   She said the “head honchos” of the firm awarded the contract are Obama surrogates and that the contract is “payback for their support of Obama”.

Gov. Palin  responded to Greta’s question about Biden’s accusation of the Tea Party Congressment as “obstructionists” by  saying that the Tea Party fiscal conservatives’ goal is to obstruct more government growth and to awaken America to the road to bankruptcy that Obama and Biden have us on.    Asked about the Texas race, she predicted that Ted Cruz would win.  At that point, she announced her endorsement of Senator Orrin Hatch in Utah and referred to him as “Mr. Balanced Budget.”   She also predicted that Governor  Scott Walker will win in Wisconsin and that Wisconsin will be just fine because of his leadership.    Gov. Palin further predicted that the outcome of the June 5 election in Wisconsin will be indicative of how the state will vote in the general election.

Read the full transcript of Gov. Palin’s OTR interview here.
