What Governor Palin’s Participation in Tribute to the Troops (for which she will receive no fee) Says about 2012

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 9, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

As I reported here, Governor Palin is speaking at the Tribute to the Troops fundraiser on May 2nd. Originally, she was to keynote the Patriots & Warriors Gala on the same date, but the Pacheco Foundation allowed Palin-haters to shut down their efforts for our military.

Not only is the Governor still helping our troops, she’s doing it without accepting a fee. Kyle Glazier of The Denver Post reports:

This time, the former Alaska governor, vice presidential candidate and reality-television personality is scheduled to speak at “Tribute to the Troops with Sarah Palin” at Colorado Christian University.

John Andrews, who leads the Centennial Institute think tank at the Lakewood college, said the school has a signed contract for the event and is prepared to deal with any publicity — positive or negative — that the conservative star might bring with her.

“Her staff has told us to expect an interesting ride, in terms of static,” Andrews said. “We know what’s down that road, and we are eager to go there.”


Andrews said the Tea Party icon will not receive a speaking fee for her appearance at CCU. Palin’s fee sometimes exceeds $100,000, the Washington Speaker’s Bureau said last month.

Andrews said he doesn’t think security concerns derailed the Pacheco Foundation event and that Colorado came off “not looking great” because of a “perception that someone important could be chased away.

“Certainly, there is a warm welcome for her on our campus,” Andrews said.


All ticket proceeds from Palin’s Lakewood appearance will support the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a national nonprofit group benefiting the families of fallen soldiers, Andrews said.

Andrews said the fact that Palin’s eldest son is a veteran made her a great choice for the event. Track Palin served in Iraq in 2008-2009.

When Governor Palin was scheduled to speak at the Patriots & Warriors Gala, speculation ran rampant that this meant she isn’t running for president since she would have to miss the Republican presidential candidates’ debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California to participate in the military fundraiser. Of course, her commitment to the fundraiser signified only that she wouldn’t participate in that particular debate.

Once the fundraiser was canceled, people obviously thought this meant she would debate other 2012 hopefuls that day. Now that she has opted to participate in the Tribute to the Troops instead, politicos are once again abuzz with predictions that she isn’t running. Today, Tim Crawford, treasurer of her political action committee, SarahPAC, puts those speculations to rest. Katrina Trinko writes:

Sarah Palin’s decision to deliver a speech in Colorado the same day as the first GOP presidential primary debate does not signal that she will not run in 2012, says an official with Palin’s PAC.

“It has nothing to do with a decision [about running for president in 2012]. The Governor said the other day that she will make a decision about that in the coming months,” Tim Crawford, the treasurer of Palin’s PAC, told National Review Online.

Once again, the only thing her decision to fundraise on May 2nd rather than participate in this leftist media-run debate reveals is that at this point she’s more interested in our military than doing the conventional thing to prove something to talking heads who have only their own interests in mind.

Governor Palin to Keynote May 2nd Tribute to the Troops

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 7, 2011

By Adrienne Ross –

On May 2nd, Governor Palin will reportedly participate in a fundraiser for U.S. troops. You’ll recall that she was originally scheduled to keynote the Patriots & Warriors Gala at the Infinity Park Events Center in Glendale, CO on that same date. Unfortunately, the sponsor, the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation, gave in to pressure from political bullies and canceled “due to an onslaught of personal attacks against Gov. Palin and others associated with her appearance.”

Onward and upward…Governor Palin will still support and assist our military on May 2nd. According to Colorado Christian University:

Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker for Tribute to the Troops, a military and veterans appreciation rally at Colorado Christian University on May 2, 2011.

The rally will be held at CCU’s Lakewood Event Center. Also featured is Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, as well as cameos with members of all branches of the US Armed Forces.
All are welcome. Tickets are $25, and seating is limited to 1,000 people. All proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a charity benefiting families of the fallen.

You can register for this event here.
