Governor Palin Attends Stryker Brigade Welcome Home Ceremony

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

(H/T Ron Devito)

Governor Palin doesn't just talk about the need to support and protect our troops; she has lived the concerns that family members of our military face. Just two days after she released a note on her Facebook page urging President Obama to be decisive in his support of our troops in Afghanistan, she attended the welcome home ceremony of the First Stryker Brigade from Fort Wainwright--including her son, Track--from a year-long deployment in Iraq.

KTUU reported:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin attended Thursday afternoon's welcome home ceremony for the 1st Stryker Brigade from Fort Wainwright at the Carlson Center.

The public appearance is Palin's first in the United States since resigning her office in July. Palin's oldest son, Track, is a member of the brigade that recently returned from a yearlong deployment in Iraq.

"To Sarah Palin, who for the last year was the senior mom of the brigade and along with her husband Todd, is a distinguished member of the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team," Col. Burt Thompson, the brigade's commander, said.

"Ma'am, thanks for being here today and allowing your son to serve in our brigade. Thank you both for what you have done for your extended Army family and thanks for your unwavering support."


"Today we celebrate a job well done and your safe return to Alaska and the Fairbanks community," Maj. Gen. William Troy, commander of U.S. Army Alaska, said. "The teamwork between military and community here in Alaska is like nowhere else.

"By every account the Arctic Wolves acquitted themselves brilliantly."

Said Thompson: "Gentlemen, I report to you mission accomplished."

Surprise! Billionaire Obama Supporter Keeping Levi Johnston In The Spotlight

As we have talked about since the election, there has been a coordinated effort by backers of Barack Obama to harm Governor Sarah Palin. We have also talked about the efforts put forth by both candidate, and now President, Barack Obama to do everything in his power to derail Sarah Palin.

We have previously talked about Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia and how Obama and Pete Rouse, his former campaign chief-of -staff and now White House adviser, not only played an active roll in the failed "Troopergate" smear on Sarah Palin, but also actively coordinated the many attacks on Sarah post election, including encouraging the filing of all of the phony-baloney "ethics complaints" against her that would eventually cost the Alaskan taxpayers around $2 million.

Barack Obama even did a little pay-for-play "Chicago Style" payoff to Alaska State Senator Kim Elton for his part in the "Troopergate" smear. After being sworn in, Obama quietly appointed Elton to a make work job over at the Department of Interior. You can read the whole deal, as well as watch the great video that ties the entire mess together in a nice little bow, here.

As you know, Levi Johnston, the poster child for abstinence, and deadbeat dad of the century, is now "staring" in an advertising campaign for nuts. This ad, which also features his "bodyguard" "Tank" Jones, an Alaska private investigator, who works for Alaska attorney Rex Butler, a big Obama supporter, features Levi and "Tank" pretending to be at an "event" and has Levi eating the company’s nut.

Butler, who claims to be Levi’s "manager" is also representing Levi’s mother, who is facing drug trafficking charges.

The seriously cheesy ad, which features Levi in a green t-shirt with "Alaska" on it, (because no one would know who this moron is without it) is set against an all white background with "flash bulbs" going off and "canned" crowd noises while ‘Tank" pretends to "fight back the paparazzi!"

Perfectly pathetic, just like the participants!

Our friend Gregory Tart did some digging into Roll Industries, the parent company behind all of this. On his blog, Gregory reports that:

For months last year, the Huffington Post mocked Sarah Palin over Levi Johnston. The jokes about "meth", hillbillies, and Bristol Palin was beyond the pale.

Now, Obama backers have launched an equally insidious deal to keep Levi Johnston in the public eye through a promotional campaign by Roll Industries for its nuts products- which seeks to profit from the former relationship between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. Johnston is a spokesman for the Roll's Paramount Growers division.

Stewart A. Resnick, a billionaire liberal democrat, residing in Los Angeles, is the Chairman of Roll International. Rolls' business involves agriculture, Fiji Water, and the Franklin Mint. He is also a prime financial backer behind the Democratic Party. His wife Lynda is Godmother to Arianna Huffington's daughter.

Many have speculated that rich democrats would go to any lengths to keep this character in the public eye to embarrass Sarah Palin. It’s a sad world where the rich can score political points by attacking children to get at the mother.

Rolls International Brands include Sunkist.

Some very interesting points there, for sure. The ties to hate monger Arianna Huffington, whose vile Huffington Post actively and openly promotes hatred toward Sarah Palin are the most interesting, for sure.

In her attempts to constantly smear and spread lies about Sarah Palin, Huffington plucked two Z-list bloggers Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) from obscurity, and made them feature bloggers on her website. Moore and Devon are charters members of Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia.

One of the things Moore and Devon, along with Linda Kellen Biegel, were quite adept at, was illegally publicizing details of the various "ethics complaints" filed against Governor Palin. In Alaska, it’s illegal to publicize this sort of thing, until the complaint is resolved. Of course, the law has no teeth.

Oddly enough, if you do this and the complaint is against any government official EXCEPT the Governor, the complaint is thrown out. But curiously, not if it’s against the Governor or their staff. Hmmmmm.

Moore and Devon, along with the rest of the Alaska Mafia made great use of this loophole, often having intimate details of the complaints published on their blogs before they were even filed!

Wonder how they were able to do that? Could it be they were the ones writing them for others to file on their behalf?

The complaints, which have all been dismissed, were for ridiculous things like being photographed holding a fish, conducting an interview in her office, receiving cookies as a "bribe," and wearing a jacket in sub-zero weather!

Linda Kellin Biegel, who was raising funds (possibly illegally) on her website so she could file more ethics complaints, herself, even concocted a conspiracy theory when Sarah went to visit her troops in Kosovo!

Even better, being the constitutional scholar that she is, Biegel, and her Mafia buddies decided that it was "unconstitutional" for Sarah Palin to talk to her troops while visiting them in Kosovo! I kid you not!

Sarah Palin, as Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, addressed her troops giving them encouragement and support. Bringing them the best wishes from home.

Such is the depths of depravity these supreme sufferers of Palin Derangement Syndrome are capable of!

Look, the bottom line is this. Barack Obama and his many wealthy supporters know what we know. Sarah Palin is the biggest threat out there to Barack Obama, besides Barack Obama’s own incompetence. They know that she is an incredibly effective politician, see "death panels," as well as a much loved Conservative figure and leading candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. This has them scared, as it should.

Obama’s billionaire backers like Stewart Resnick and George Soros have an almost endless supply of funds they will use to go after Palin in all sorts of "creative" ways. It must be noted though, that George Soros, whose MoveOn.org claimed "ownership" of the democrat party after the 2006 elections, spent a small fortune between 2000 and 2008 trying to defeat George Bush, to no avail!

As for Levi Johnston, this guy is a flake. Thank goodness Bristol had the good sense to dump this loser. It’s really a sad commentary that this kid would disrespect his son just to make a fast buck.

Levi, a total deadbeat who hasn’t paid one red cent in child support, is the sort person society used to shun. But we are living in the times were losers like this are celebrated, not banished to the ash heap of history. See Roman Polanski, David Letterman, and Obama’s "Safe Schools Czar" Kevin Jennings.

It’s obvious Levi Johnston has no self respect. But you would think this mutt would care about his son, Tripp, enough not to make a spectacle out of himself, but that is just too much to ask, I guess. Levi’s next move is to pose for Playgirl Magazine. I wonder if anyone has told Levi that about 80 percent of the purchasers of Playgirl are gay men?

It looks like Roll Industries, Stewart Resnick, and our President, have found themselves quite the winner in "spokesmodel" Levi Johnston!

Roll International is the parent company for these fine products:

Sunkist Fruit

Teleflora, the largest flower delivery service in the world.

FIJI bottled water

POM pomegranate products.

Paramount citrus and nuts.

Suterra pest control items.

Neptune Pacific Line global shipping company

In-house advertising agency Fire Station, which pays Levi as a pitchman for Rolls' nuts.

McCain-Palin 10-08-2008 Rally Bethlehem, PA -- Devito Experience

In her hand, the Sharpie branded my shirt and engraved my heart like a green laser -- no disrespect intended towards my wife Elsy, the love of my life (I finally did replace that Pink Diamond lipstick I clipped off her to make that sign!). I want Elsy to see that last glass ceiling explode from beneath a woman's sonic boom. The moment Governor Palin branded my heart, it meant I had to engage in serious action to advance her interests. So, I did, but the 2008 campaign was really baby steps.

My Time for Choosing came the moment Obama won. The choice did not require any thought, any agonizing or any consideration: Sarah 2012.

A few of us on Team Sarah started a campaign to defend Governor Palin against smear attacks in the Anchorage Daily News and elsewhere. A steady diet of writing defense packages became disheartening, and it occurred to me that something more proactive, something more positive had to be done. Why not focus on her accomplishments and make them available to the general public? After all, on Team Sarah, I was mainly preaching to the choir. Thus, Accomplishments was born. My political action extends far beyond blogs of course and I’ve gotten my hands into lots of things with lots of people since that day. I am an introvert, but this work unlocked an extroverted side that I never knew existed within me.

My life’s journey since this moment has been quite interesting to say the least in good and not-so-good ways. But, even the bad ultimately turned or will turn good. To steal Governor Palin’s quote, “It’s all good.”

Her life’s journey since the moment she branded my heart has been nothing short of inspirational:

Today, it is right for me to pause....

Governor Palin:

My hero, my inspiration, my North Star, my guardian angel....my President. I will always follow your lead. I am your student and I am proud to have you as my teacher.
