Part III: Governor Palin Discusses Faith/Facing Challenges

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

In this segment of Governor Palin's BGEA interview when visiting Rev. Billy Graham in North Carolina last week, she talked about how faith in Christ enables her to face every challenge life throws her way. That faith is the reason she is still standing through all the ups and downs. With that solid foundation, the Governor said, "You can't help but then be positive and optimistic." Amen!

Much is made of Governor Palin's common sense message of conservatism. Indeed, she is the leading voice in the movement today. However, her common sense isn't limited to issues of small government, fiscal responsibility, and energy independence. She chose to put her life in the hands of Christ when she was merely a child, and speaking as someone who also made that decision many years ago, I can testify that it is the most common sense decision I have ever made. It just makes sense to allow the Creator to mold His creation.

I pray you make the same decision in your life that the Governor and I have made in ours.

Sarah Palin Strikes New Ground as Keynote Speaker at International Bowl Expo 2010

Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA) Welcomes Palin as Featured Guest at Bowling Industry's Premier International Convention

ARLINGTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 2, 2009) - The Bowling Proprietors' Association of America (BPAA), the bowling industry's leading trade association, announced today that the bowling industry rolled a strike, securing Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker at this summer's International Bowl Expo 2010.

"Sarah Palin is a great friend to the bowling industry and we're so proud and honored to welcome her as our keynote speaker at International Bowl Expo 2010," said Steven Johnson, executive director of the BPAA. "Regardless of your political affiliation, Ms. Palin is a force in American politics and culture. Her presence underscores the impact and importance of bowling, one of our country's leading national pastimes and a growing $10 billion industry."

The International Bowl Expo 2010 is to be held from June 27 to July 1 at the Las Vegas Hilton and Las Vegas Convention Center. Ms. Palin's keynote speech is to take place during the general session on the morning of June 30 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

About Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vice-presidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party's presidential ticket.

In Alaska, her top priorities included fiscal restraint, limiting the size of government, resource development, education, equitable oil valuation as well as transportation and infrastructure development. Palin fought for ethics reform and transparency in government.

Palin has a long record of achievement and experience in public office. Prior to her election as Governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and two terms as the mayor of Wasilla. During her tenure, she reduced property tax levels while increasing services and made Wasilla a business-friendly environment, drawing in new industry.

Under her leadership as Governor, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding and protected Alaska's natural resources. She created Alaska's Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.

During Governor Palin's first year in office, three of her administration's major proposed pieces of legislation passed included an overhaul of the state's ethics laws, a competitive process to construct a natural gas pipeline and a restructuring of Alaska's oil valuation formula.

Palin is past chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment. She also served as chair of the National Governors Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee, which was charged with pursuing legislation to ensure state needs are considered as federal policy is formulated in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management.

Sarah Heath Palin arrived in Alaska with her family in 1964, when her parents came to teach school in Skagway. She received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications-Journalism from the University of Idaho in 1987.

She is married to Todd Palin, who is a lifelong Alaskan, worked as a production operator on the North Slope and is a four-time champion of the Iron Dog, the world's longest snow machine race. They have five children. She is the author of "Going Rogue: An American Life," which was released in November 2009.

About BPAA

Headquartered in Arlington, Texas, the 77-year-old Bowling Proprietors' Association of America is a trade association representing the business interests of bowling center owners worldwide. BPAA's mission is to enhance the profitability of its member bowling centers.

As a former Governor, and a small business owner, Sarah is obviously a great choice to headline this event. Bowling is a very popular sport worldwide and Sarah’s vast business experience as well as her love for all sports should be a great fit with this group.

The ‘Cuda Goes Platinum: Going Rogue Sells A Million Copies

Fresh from debuting in the coveted number one spot on the New York Times Bestseller List comes the announcement that Sarah’s book, Going Rogue, An American Life, has reached platinum status by selling one million copies.

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said Tuesday that just two weeks after publication, Sarah Palin's memoir has sold 1 million copies. The print run for "Going Rogue" has been increased again, to 2.8 million copies. The original printing was 1.5 million, then moved up to 2.5 million.

Sarah's Return to Idaho: A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Next Thursday, December 10th, Sarah and her oh-so-cool Going Rogue Tour bus will be making a stop in Sanpoint, Idaho. While this is just one stop of many, it will be particulary symbolic to Sarah because she was born in Sandpoint. Her parents, Chuck and Sally lived there before moving the family to Alaska when Sarah was just a newborn. I can only imagine how great it will be for Sarah and her family to return to a place that holds a special place in their hearts. Although Sarah only lived there for a short time, I guarantee Chuck and Sally brought her and her siblings up with the memories they had of Sandpoint. Idaho, in particular, is special to Sarah because she spent some of her college years there, graduating from the University of Idaho in 1987.

What I have found so amazing about Sarah is how she has chosen to spend her book tour by visiting cities that are the heart and soul of America. While others may choose big, glitzy cities to travel (which is fine too) to for a book signing stop, Sarah did what she does best. By thinking outside the box and visiting the smaller cities and towns across America, it is as if she has given those cities a voice. It is almost as if she has put those cities on the map. While most of the cities on her book tour are easily recognizable, it is the smaller, more unfamiliar cities like Sandpoint, for example, that are getting attention and perhaps some tourism as well. Cool, huh?

Many famous people seem to forget where they come from when they become well-known individuals, but not Sarah. Her love for Alaska and the fact that she is returning to her place of birth illustrate just how down-to-earth and real an individual Sarah is. It is clear that she has NOT forgotten where she has come from. God bless Chuck and Sally for teaching their children the importance of God, family and community.

I want to close by including the following article written by Keith Kinnaird, the news editor for the Sandpoint Bonner County Daily Bee, which gives more information on the scheduled book-signing event:

Palin Book Tour Coming to Town

Posted: Wednesday, Dec 02, 2009 - 10:06:28 am PST

SANDPOINT — Former GOP vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin is scheduled to make a stop in Sandpoint this month to promote her autobiography.
The book-signing event is planned for Thursday, Dec. 10, at the Sandpoint Business & Events Center. It lasts from 6-9 p.m.

Palin’s plans were confirmed Tuesday through Lynda Scott, who owns the events center with her husband, Brad.

“The date and time is set,” said events center Manager Kathy Andruzak.

The event is being sponsored by Vanderford’s Books in Sandpoint.

“It just kind of blossomed,” Tom Vanderford said of efforts to include Sandpoint on the book tour.

The event will be a homecoming of sorts.

Palin’s parents, Chuck and Sally Heath, lived in Sandpoint when she was born in 1964. She lived here briefly before the family relocated to Alaska.

“From what I understand, Sarah herself wanted to come to Sandpoint because she was born here. She was the one who requested it,” Vanderford said.

Moreover, Chuck Heath used to teach school at the events center, which used to be the local middle school.

“He was teaching natural science,” said Heath’s childhood friend, Kermit Kiebert. “He was a good teacher I might add.”

Palin is on tour promoting “Going Rogue: An American Life,” a New York Times best seller. The book chronicles Palin’s 2008 run for vice president, the election fallout and the role of faith in her life.

Vanderford said sales of “Going Rogue” have been swift since it hit bookshelves last month.

“We’ve sold out of it several times,” said Vanderford. “We have 2,000 books coming in the next few days and we probably have about 50 or 60 in the store right now.”

Only books purchased at Vanderford’s will be eligible for signing. Vanderford said customers’ cash register receipts will serve as proof of purchase, although there are plans to have some copies of the book available for purchase at the event.

The Sandpoint stop coincides with with a book signing at the Fred Meyer store in Coeur d’Alene earlier the same day.

Although the Republican presidential ticket did not carry the nation during last year’s general election, it did extremely well in Idaho and Bonner County.

John McCain and Palin won 61 percent of the vote in Idaho, compared to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden, who garnered 36 percent, according to Idaho Secretary of State records.

In Bonner County, the McCain-Palin ticket won 11,145 votes and prevailed in 28 of the county’s 34 voting precincts. Obama and Biden collected only 7,840 votes and carried just six precincts, Bonner County Clerk records indicate.

What People See At A Sarah Palin Booksigning

A little something Tammy Bruce tweeted last night:

I'm just sayin'

Check out Tammy @ http://tammybruce.com/

Stop The Presses! Sarah Palin Flies On Airplanes!!

You know, I wasn’t going to even address this nonsense, but I guess after a year of reporting on the insanity the loons on the left cook up about Sarah Palin, I should have known better. The left fears Sarah Palin like they have feared no other. Sarah Palin represents all that is good and great in America, and the left absolutely hates America. They show their contempt for this great nation, and all that makes it so, on a daily basis.

So what is the latest lunacy from the hate mongering left? Well, (OMG!) Sarah Palin is flying on airplanes to some of her book signings, and not riding the bus the whole time. Oh the humanity!

This lunacy started in a piece written on the Daily Beast. Some loser, who I refuse to give the satisfaction of naming, went into a lengthy tirade about somehow Sarah was a fraud, a phony, because she was actually flying to some events and "punishing" her staff by making them ride the bus.

This future Pulitzer Prize winner had enough charts and graphs, and 8x10 color glossy pictures, with circles and arrows, and a paragraph on the back of each one, to make the cop in Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant proud!

It’s a damned shame this guy wasn’t interested in...oh...say, the photo op Obama’s crack team sent Air Force One on, over the City of New York! You remember, the one that scared the crap out of the citizens of the city, who still kinda remember that little thing we call 9/11!

The bill for that was around $350,000 for some really crappy pictures. Photoshop would have been a LOT easier, and a dollar or two cheaper!

Then there is Obama’s date night with Michelle in New York City. That didn’t cost much, did it?

Or how about all of the parties at the White House? That place has been busier than Austin’s Sixth Street on a Saturday night! Party central. $100 a pound Japanese Wagyu beef, arugula, and all!!

Of course, this guy was just the start. Hates sites like the Huffington Post, and Palingates, a group of hate filled loons who fueled the "Trig truthers," that incredible bunch of loons who are still trying to sell the idea that Sarah is not really Trig’s mother, jumped in.. So far, according to these idiots, Trig is actually Bristol’s (a physical and chronological impossibility) Willow’s, or maybe Todd’s! (Yeah, it would be a first, be we are talking left wing loons here)

AOL now has a story up on their front page fueling the fire. Why Conservatives do business with AOL beyond me. They are further to the left in their "news" dissemination than MSNBC, which is a wholly "owned" subsidiary of Obama, Inc. I mean just worthless as a news source.

Anyhow. AOL is not only linking Palingates, which is part of the Alaska Mafia, the group that White House adviser, and Obama’s campaign chief-of-staff , Pete Rouse, helps coordinate. They link the ultra far left hate site, the Daily Kos!

Palingates is part of the hate blogs who helped file the dozens of phony ethics complaints that cost the Alaska tax payers millions, paralyzed Palin’s government. They are evil.

It’s shocking though, that AOL also quotes one of the most vile, hate filled sites on the internet, the Daily Kos. A site by the way that hosts a yearly function in D.C. that is basically required attendance for all democrat/communists if the want to please their radical far left base. Most attend.

Again, why a major corporation like AOL would want their image tarnished with hate and lies is beyond me. It’s why we refuse to do business with them in any way, shape, or form.

Astonishingly, their discussion forums are filled with the same hate filled "progressves" that frequent sites like the Daily Kos and the Huffington Post, two of the most vile websites the internet has to offer. So I guess that IS what AOL wants to be, who they want to cater to.

Anyhow, as I said, I wasn’t going to give any of these loons credence, but this, like everything with Sarah, has reached critical mass as now the Tiffany Network is reporting this nonsense. CBS being the "news organization" that had Obama’s almost Vice President Sam Nunn basically write the questions that Katie Couric used in her much talked about interview with Sarah last year.

Oh, and Dana Chivvis, the so-called "reporter" for AOL who wrote this? She also blogs at CBS.com. I’m shocked.

Sarah herself has weighed in:

Media's Priorities Shine Bright, Again! :)

It’s really comical at this point! Despite all of the important events happening in the world today – the president’s speech tonight on the strategy in Afghanistan, the Senate debate over health care reform, the disturbing details of the "Climategate" scandal, the continuing challenges facing the world economy – the media is concerned about my travel and lodging arrangements on my book tour?! Does this sound familiar? It should. The media showed the same out-of-proportion obsession with my personal arrangements, clothes, and hairstyles last year instead of focusing on the crucial issues involving the election.

So what is this news "story"? That I fly on an airplane to complete some of the stops on my book tour when it’s impractical or physically impossible to reach the next event on time by bus. Some news outlets are behaving as if my travel was a secret that they didn’t know about – despite the fact that I’ve tweeted about my flights and at least one local newspaper reported on the arrival of my flight into Rochester, NY. What’s even funnier is that these same media outlets think it’s shocking that we stay in hotels. I guess they expected us to pitch a tent alongside the road. We love the great outdoors, but such an arrangement is hardly practical for a book tour. Using common sense, it was determined that traveling by plane between some stops would save time and energy and allow me to go to more events. Economically speaking for HarperCollins, it’s more efficient to travel by charter, and I am very grateful to the publisher for providing my family and me with this incredible opportunity to shake hands with as many Americans as possible on this book tour.

If you’re scratching your head wondering why my flight and hotel logistics warrant news coverage, join the club. They can, of course, report on whatever they like, but in my opinion CBS loses whatever professional integrity it still has when it links in its report to a website devoted to the bizarre conspiracy theory that I’m not the real mother of my son Trig.

I’m truly humbled by the response to my book tour by everyday Americans, and if traveling by plane means that I can meet more of these wonderful people, I’ll travel by plane (or bus or train or canoe or dog sled or whatever it takes). Please enjoy the photos below!

- Sarah Palin

The pictures Sarah references are copyrighted by the photographer, Shealah Craighead so please take time to go to Sarah’s site and check them out.

The shocking photo below is from the 2008 campaign. It clearly shows Sarah Palin inside an airplane! Piper is seen talking to President George W. Bush on the phone. No doubt discussing state secrets, or something. Also seen in the photo is Texas Governor, Rick Perry. Make of that what you will!

Sarah is obviously right in all of this. Of course, the real deal is: This is a diversion. Look at what is going on right now that the democrat/communists absolutely do not want you to know about or focus on.

First, our most corrupt "president" in history is about to turn Afghanistan into Vietnam 2.0. We have now politicized this war. Something that should NEVER be done. It is unforgivable that this poor excuse for a commander-in-chief would play games with the lives of our finest and bravest. Obama and the rest of his far left radical regime are making the exact same mistakes the democrat/communists did in Vietnam, and a lot of brave men and women will die for it.

From this day forward, every death in this war is on Obama.

Then there is the health care debate. Most of America, according to any poll you want to cite, is dead set against this plan that will cost an estimated six trillion dollars. This is the biggest power grab in history. A plan that will tax this nation into oblivion, destroy the best health care in the world, and totally usurp states rights, while basically rendering our sacred constitution null and void.

And by all means, our economy is in shambles, so let’s don’t talk about all of the lies Obama and his team are spewing about jobs "saved or created." We all know that Obama’s Recovery.gov is an $18 million waste of tax payer money, and a total sham, with reports of jobs being "saved or created" in almost 100 congressional districts that don’t even exist!

So by all means, lets don’t talk about that.

Then there is the crowning jewel: Climategate. This little deal has just exposed "global warming" as the greatest lie ever told in the history of mankind! Not only have all of the scientists been cooking the books, now they are destroying original findings to hide their crime against humanity.

Who knows how much treasure has been wasted by the nations of this earth chasing this proven lie! Now thinking people ALWAYS knew "global warming" was a hoax. Only the flat earthers, the uneducated, those devoid of any sort of common sense, fell for this scam.

Crooks like Al Gore have made hundreds of millions of dollars off of this lie, and he stands to make billions. Same goes for companies like General Electric, the parent company of NBC/Universal, which continually pushes the "green" agenda, even through it’s entertainment division. General Electric CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, by the way, serves on a couple of advisory boards to Obama, and G.E. Capital received billions in TARP funds.

People like Gore and Immelt should be locked up in prison for helping spreading this hoax and profiting off this lie. Al Gore especially, as he has infected children world wide by having his total propaganda film, An Inconvenient Truth, forced on school children everywhere, as fact.

Bernie Madoff looks like a saint compared to Al Gore.

Even better, as the wheels come off the wagon, and the extent of this greatest hoax on mankind in the world’s history continues to be exposed, our so-called "president" is now planning to go to the "climate summit" in Copenhagen to discuss treaties on this nonexistent problem that would basically turn over United States sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable board.

As we all know, the real agenda of all of this is to turn the entire world into a communist affair. This is wealth distribution on a biblical scale. And that’s the real reason this big lie was cooked up in the first place. It’s a mechanism to steal trillions of dollars from wealthy nations and give it to third world counties. It’s Karl Marx on steroids!

But (OMG!) Let’s don’t dare talk about THAT!

What we should be talking about is why we are not storming the White House gates and demanding that these rabid communists all step down! Why someone isn’t bringing out articles of impeachment on this reckless "president," or at the very least threatening to if he goes to Copenhagen and starts this process based on the greatest lie ever told, the greatest scam in human history.

That’s what we should be talking about, but nope, instead your friendly local Obamacentric propaganda outlet, err..... I mean..... news outlet, is spending all of it’s time fretting about the fact that the Arctic Fox is flying on airplanes and sleeping in hotels!

Folks, we have real issues in this nation, serious issues. We need to hold these dishonest reporters accountable. But more than that, we need to hold the most dishonest and corrupt "president" in our nation’s history, along with the most dishonest and corrupt Congress in history, accountable.

We must demand that Obama and his team either get it together and follow the Constitution, or step down. And if not, face the full wrath of the American people, which needs to include prison time for the lot. The same goes for Congress.

All of these people work for us. With few exceptions, they are horrible employees. We need them to understand they are on notice. Here again, the worst of the lot, the ones pushing the "global warming" lies and this unconstitutional power grab disguised as health care reform need to be tried for treason, and dealt with accordingly.

Americans have set back for too long and just accepted things from the crooks in D.C. as they came. Americans have also put up with a corrupt media telling lies about good people, and covering up for those destroying America.

Now, just like this nonsense with Sarah, things have reached critical mass. The excrement has hit the fan!

As Americans, we must get involved and me must act. Me must act now and DEMAND change.

We are on the very brink of losing America as we know and love it, forever. We do not have the luxury of sitting back while the media misdirects us with nonsense stories like the fact that Sarah Palin flies on airplanes, Tiger Woods has issues, or whatever the diversion of the day is.

We are gripped by an evil this nation has never before known. Marxists, communists, socialists and other radicals have been hiding in the shadows for decades looking for their chance to act.

They have infiltrated our government, infected our schools and universities, and infiltrated our news media.. The election of Barack Obama as well as the most radical far left Congress in our history has provided the perfect storm for this great evil to take hold of America. These people, all working in concert, mean to fundamentally change America forever. They have been working for decades at destroying the very fabric of society.

We are at a crossroads, like this story on Sarah Palin’s travel arrangements, this diabolical plan to destroy America from within has reached critical mass.

Make no mistake about it, I am sick and tired of the hate filled left, and their attacks on one of the finest leaders this nation has ever produced. It angers me to my very core that these gutter snipes take daily swipes at Sarah Palin. They are the lowest of the low.

But, we must never lose sight of the fact that part of the reason the media is doing this, is to distract you from the great evil that is being done by those in Washington, D.C., and those who wander the halls of our institutions of "higher learning." The media is willfully enabling what amounts to a coup de’tat.

We have a government that has run amok. A government that no longer listens, or cares about the American people. This most corrupt institution in our history must be stopped. The violators of our Constitution must be dealt with severely.

Oh, the media means to destroy Sarah Palin, that’s for sure. Sarah represents a clear and present danger to all of their evil plans. Sarah has energized and inspired a nation. Millions have been awakened by this magnificent woman’s spirit, integrity, and willingness to fight. Those who wish to destroy America from within, in an effort to remake it in their image, will go to any and every length to achieve their goal of stopping Sarah Palin.

And if they succeed? Well, they’ll just keep on going, and if someone else dare stand up, they’ll start in on them. This is how they work. Sarah Palin is by far the most powerful leader we have had in a generation or more, but make no mistake about it, anyone who dares to stand up to this evil will be hated, smeared, and otherwise targeted for destruction by those who wish to destroy America.

So in the end, we must fight. We must fight with every ounce of our souls. We must fight for Sarah Palin and we must fight for America. We must unite behind this great cause, this fight against evil, or see that shining light on a hill, as Reagan described America, go dark forever.
