Sarah Palin Slams Impotent And Anti-Semitic Barack Obama Over His Incoherent Iran Policy And Jihad Against Israel



Let’s cut to the chase here: Barack Obama, and most of the Marxist-democrat party have little or no use for Israel or the Jewish people. Since Jimmy Carter, another terrorist sympathizer, and well known anti-Semite, the democrat party has been hostile toward Israel and the Jewish people, but they tried to hide it from American Jews.

With the election of Barack Obama, who has marinated in hatred for America and Israel since childhood, the mask has come off the Marxist-democrat party. As anyone who was paying attention knows, Barack Obama attended the "church" of Reverend Jeremiah "God Damn America" Wright for over 20 years. Wright is a well known anti-Semite and supporter of the terrorist group Hamas.

Since taking office, Obama has been on a real crusade to alienate all of our friends worldwide, and coddle our enemies. Great Britain now says that they, and America, no longer have a "special relationship." But no where is Obama’s ass-backwards foreign policy more apparent than with his policies towards both Iran and Israel.

Israel has been an ally and friend, of the United States since her founding. The one true friend in the Middle East. Obama has done everything in his power to alienate Israel and the Jewish people. This culminated last week when Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu was treated like an outcast at the White House, with Obama refusing to be photographed with him, and rudely ending their meeting to go have dinner with the First Lady. A major case of jackassery. . .




I guess we should all be thankful he wasn’t kicked out the back door and forced to walk past the garbage like the Dalai Lama!




On the other hand, Iran is our sworn enemy. To them, we are "The Great Satan." They have "Death to America" and "Death to Israel" rallies on a pretty regular basis to keep their oppressed people occupied.

In a manner that would make Neville Chamberlain blush, Obama has sought has to appease this fanatical regime. Iran is the world’s leading sponsor of terror and has been supplying weapons that have killed American troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

Most would consider this casus belli for war, but Barack Obama can’t even bring himself to talk about meaningful sanctions against the terrorist nation.

Even more disturbing, when the Iranian people, most who are not fanatics, tried to rise up and overthrow the Iranian government, Obama was no where to be found. As Iranians were slaughtered in the streets and looked to America for support, Obama sat silent.

That told everyone who was watching all they needed to know about Obama and the kind of "man" he is.

Sarah Palin has been a consistent friend to Israel, and has been hitting Obama on his stance for some time, but it’s pretty easy to see that she has become impatient with his inability to lead our nation, protect us, or our allies. As Sarah put it earlier, this situation "needs a commander-in-chief, not a Harvard law professor. "

With that said:

Peace Not Possible if Iran Escapes Real Sanctions

This is a meaningful week for so many of us. As millions of Christians and Jews celebrate this Holy Week, it’s appropriate to reflect on developments in the Holy Land. Israel faces a nuclear threat from Iran that grows every day. Today we learned that the CIA has concluded that Iran already has the capability and the know-how to build nuclear weapons. While President Obama once said a nuclear-armed Iran would be "unacceptable," after more than a year in office it’s sobering to have to acknowledge that his administration has made no progress in implementing "crippling" sanctions on Iran, let alone halting Iran’s nuclear program.

Even the rhetoric moved in the wrong direction – recently the administration downgraded their call for "crippling" sanctions to sanctions that "bite." Shockingly, as we learned last week, these "biting" sanctions will no longer include actions that could actually change Iran’s behavior, including limiting Iran’s access to international capital markets and banking services or closing air space and waters to Iran’s national air and shipping lines.

So the issue is not when the so-called sanctions will come (President Obama promised them in "weeks" today) but whether they will even "nibble." And while the Obama administration was more than willing to use every parliamentary trick in the book to ram its government health care takeover through Congress, conversely, it has worked hard to stall bipartisan efforts to pass the Iran Sanctions Act.

Many, many Americans and our allies know that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, the consequences will be catastrophic for our interests in the Middle East, and we want our government to do everything in its power to prevent Iran from acquiring nukes.

We foresee a regional nuclear arms race beginning as other countries seek their own nuclear weapons to protect themselves from Iran. Nuclear non-proliferation efforts would be over. The U.S. and our allies in the international community would be shown to be impotent – after long claiming that Iranian nuclear weapons could not and would not be tolerated. And Israel would face the gravest threat since its creation.

Iran’s leaders have repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel and with nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them, the mullahs would be in a position to launch a Second Holocaust.

Iran continues to develop long range missiles. Its missiles can reach Israel and Europe right now and in time they will be able to reach US territory.

This issue is the most serious security challenge facing the U.S. in the region. Yet just as the Obama administration inexplicably gives up on imposing crippling sanctions on Iran, it’s taken an uncompromising hard line against one country in the Middle East: Israel. On his recent visit to Washington, the Israeli Prime Minister was treated like an unwelcome guest, as shown by White House actions such as refusing to be photographed with Israel’s Prime Minister.

Public demands for concessions have been made of the Israelis while the Palestinians add ever more conditions to their participation in peace talks, and those in the administration that dare to argue for looking at these policies through the lens of Israel’s security needs are subject to slanderous attacks from "senior administration officials." The Obama administration has their priorities exactly backwards; we should be working with our friend and democratic ally to stop Iran’s nuclear program, not throwing in the towel on sanctions while treating Israel like an enemy.

In a week when events in the Holy Land thousands of years ago are on the minds of millions, we would all do well to include Israel’s security in our prayers as we encourage our government to do all it can to ensure there is never a nuclear Iran able to threaten our interests or our allies.

- Sarah Palin


Jimmy Carter put the world in peril with his appeasement mentality. He is very much responsible for the fact there is a radical Iran. This Obama guy though is Carter on steroids, and 2010 is a lot more dangerous than the late 1970's. Iran has sought to form alliances with other enemies of America such as Venezuela and Cuba.

We all remember the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the Soviets placed nuclear weapons on the island nation. That’s as close as the world ever came to total Armageddon. The only thing that saved the world was the fact that one nation was scared and the other was glad of it. While the Soviets wanted some bargaining leverage, they weren’t all that keen on actually touching off total worldwide destruction, which is basically what the doctrine of "mutually assured destruction" promised had they launched a nuclear weapon at the United States.

On the other hand, Ahmadinejad and other Iranian leaders, aren’t as squeamish about the prospects of touching off a world wide nuclear war and the total destruction of all mankind.

Many nations have nuclear weapons now, and one can most certainly debate whether that is good or bad. The thing is though, these nations are not looking to use them as much as they are looking to send the message "mess with us, and we’ll mess back." It’s definitely a deterrent for sober nations.

There has been much written about Obama’s jihad on Israel, and ludicrous foreign policy. Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) has written some of the best.




These are must reads:

Obama blocks delivery of bunker to Israel, embargos weapons for Jewish defense.

The United States has diverted a shipment of bunker-busters designated for Israel.

Officials said the U.S. military was ordered to divert a shipment of smart bunker-buster bombs from Israel to a military base in Diego Garcia. They said the shipment of 387 smart munitions had been slated to join pre-positioned U.S. military equipment in Israel Air Force bases.

"This was a political decision," an official said.

In 2008, the United States approved an Israeli request for bunker-busters capable of destroying underground facilities, including Iranian nuclear weapons sites. Officials said delivery of the weapons was held up by the administration of President Barack Obama.

Since taking office, Obama has refused to approve any major Israeli requests for U.S. weapons platforms or advanced systems. Officials said this included proposed Israeli procurement of AH-64D Apache attack helicopters, refueling systems, advanced munitions and data on a stealth variant of the F-15E.

"All signs indicate that this will continue in 2010," a congressional source familiar with the Israeli military requests said. "This is really an embargo, but nobody talks about it publicly."


Pamela goes into greater detail and you can read much more here.

In Switching Sides, commentary she wrote for the American Thinker, Pamela gives us a bit of a history lesson to go with thoughts on Obama’s betrayals of the Jewish people:

In a stunning and historic reversal of American foreign policy, the United States is now backing one of the same horses it fought during World War II. Instead of fighting against Nazism and racism, Obama has effectively joined the jihad waged during World War II by the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.

Hamas has called for a new intifada against the Jewish people. This is the fruit of Obama's pro-jihad policies. The American-Israeli relationship has suffered its deepest rift in decades: a dispute over new Jewish homes that are being built in northern Jerusalem, just north of the Sanhedria neighborhood. This is not Arab "East Jerusalem," as the mainstream media keeps saying. And as Palestinians threw stones at Israeli soldiers at checkpoints and Muslims rioted throughout Jerusalem, an increasingly pathetic Hillary Clinton said that Israel "must prove it is committed to peace 'with actions.'"

In response, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a statement saying, "With regard to commitments to peace, the government of Israel has proven over the last year that it is committed to peace, both in words and actions." According to Haaretz, "The statement cited as examples Netanyahu's inaugural foreign policy speech made at Bar Ilan University, the removal of hundreds of roadblocks across the West Bank, and its decision to freeze temporarily construction in West Bank settlements. The latter, said the statement, was even called by Clinton an 'unprecedented' move."

The Muslims are free to live in Israel, but Jews cannot live among Muslims or in Muslim lands. This is what America is standing up for?

Read much more of Pamela’s sobering commentary here.

Pamela wrote Barack Hussein Obama II’s War Against Israel for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism, stunningly blunt words that are a must read:

Obama is not a passive, weak or naive player in the Muslim/Jewish conflict. He was wet-nursed on Jew-hatred. He grew up in a Muslim country and studied the Koran. He knows what is prescribed for the Jews in Islam. He knows that the Koran says that the Jews are the Muslims’ worst enemies (5:82) and that "ignominy shall be their portion wheresoever they are found" (3:112).

He knows that Islamic tradition records Muhammad saying:

The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

He must know all this, and yet has never renounced it. On the contrary, he embraces it, calling upon us to "respect" Islam.

I am staggered by the speed with which Obama has sought to undermine the Jewish people. But knowing what I know of him after my three years of investigation for the book I wrote with Robert Spencer, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, I expected nothing different. In the summer of 2008, I trekked to Florida to warn the alter cockers who were seduced by the idea of Obama, but to no avail: my voice and the voices of those like me are kept neatly tucked away in the blog box.

But now here we are. Jews may then have tried to avoid Obama’s anti-Semitism, but they cannot now avoid the consequences of avoiding Obama’s anti-Semitism. He has unleashed an evil in this world the extent of which we are only now beginning to see. He has made the world safe for haters and killers. The post-World War II peace was no accident; it was a direct result of American hegemony. But now he is following the European lead and unraveling it.

Europe learned the wrong lessons from the war and the Holocaust. The lesson that Europe decided to take from Auschwitz was that everything was caused by nationalism. European leaders decided that therefore what they really needed was a European Union that would obviate their need for nationalism and prevent another Auschwitz.

One simply must take time to read the rest here.

The frightening part of this all is, while Jimmy Carter showed massive weakness in the face of danger, Obama is showing both weakness, and complicity, an incredibly dangerous combination. On has to wonder what sort of psychosis this mad man suffers.

Not only is he putting the world in peril with his foreign policy and his reluctance, and inability to lead, (along with his hatred for Israel) domestically, he is dividing and destroying the United States, with his war on capitalism, the Constitution, the rule of law, and the American people..

All things considered, Barack Obama may be the most dangerous man in the world.

Palin's Real American Stories Promo

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Here's the promo for the debut of Governor Palin's Real American Stories which will air Thursday night at 10:00 p.m. on Fox. I am already inspired by the lives of these everyday Americans. I'm already even prouder to be an American.






(H/T C4P)

Sarah Palin Endorses Lt Col Allen West And American Heroes Running For Congress Nationwide




In one of the more anticipated moves of this early mid-term election season, Sarah Palin endorsed Florida’s Lt Col Allen West for Congress. Sarah also took the time to highlight all of the heroic Americans who have left military life and now wish to serve our great nation in the capacity of lawmaker.

Along with Lt.Col West, one of the most popular candidates for office this season, Sarah also highlighted the campaigns of Major Vaughn Ward and Captain Adam Kinzinger:

American Heroes Ready and Willing to Serve in Congress

America, if you love your freedom, thank a vet! And if you’re looking for leaders who believe in integrity, service, and country first, look to our veterans.

Last week I campaigned for a true American hero, John McCain, and this week I’d ask you to join me in supporting a new generation of heroes who are heeding their country’s call for leadership in Washington.

There are a number of great veteran candidates running for office this year, and there are some excellent organizations dedicated to helping them, including: Iraq Vets for Congress and Combat Veterans for Congress (please click on the links to visit their websites).

There are three veterans in particular I’ll be supporting this week.



The first is Major Vaughn Ward, a fourth-generation Idaho native who grew up on his family’s farm in Shoshone and is running in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. Coming from a family with a proud military tradition, Vaughn joined the Marine Corps after college and was finishing up his service when the September 11th attacks occurred.

He put his life on hold and heeded his country’s call – serving first as a CIA Operations Officer and later volunteering with the Marine Corps for a combat tour in Iraq, during which he was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat V. After returning from Iraq, Vaughn went to work for the McCain/Palin campaign. I was grateful for his support then, and I’m happy to support him now because I know that he believes in the same commonsense conservative ideals that we cherish. Vaughn knows that real job growth comes from the private sector, not government.

He believes in free market reforms, tax relief for families and small businesses, and a return to a constitutionally limited government that lives within its means. He’ll carry the conservative banner to Washington and will rein in the reckless growth of government to get it back on our side. And remember, a vote for Vaughn is a vote to remove the gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s grip. Please visit Vaughn’s website here to make a donation to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.




The second veteran is Captain Adam Kinzinger, a decorated special-operations pilot who flew combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Adam is running for Illinois’ 11th Congressional District against a freshman incumbent congresswoman who seemed to pull a bait and switch on voters to get elected.

She sounded like a blue dog on the campaign trail, but didn’t vote like one in Washington. Instead, she voted in lockstep with the Pelosi agenda – on Obamacare, the stimulus, cap-and-tax – and the list goes on. She’s part of the reason for Congress’ 11% approval rating.

Adam is a strong fiscal conservative with a proven track record as a reformer from his years serving on his local county board. Adam started out in local office, and, like many of us, believes in making government more accountable to the people. When you serve in local office, your constituents truly are your neighbors. Adam understands this, and I know that he will listen to his constituents and work for us, not against us, in Washington. Please visit Adam’s website here to make a donation to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.




The third veteran is Lieutenant Colonel Allen West, a decorated war hero who’s served with distinction in combat zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many of you may have heard of Allen from a speech he gave last year that became a viral video on YouTube with over 2 million viewers.

Allen’s personal story is a testament to the commonsense conservative belief that our nation’s greatness is rooted in freedom, because with freedom comes equal opportunity, and that, coupled with hard work, leads to success. Allen is a small government fiscal conservative running against a leftwing ideologue who’s marched to the beat of Nancy Pelosi on every issue from cap-and-tax to the stimulus, TARP, and, of course, Obamacare. It’s time to send Allen to Washington in his place. Please visit Allen’s website here to donate to his campaign, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

I believe that these great veterans will fight for us in D.C. to uphold and defend our constitution as courageously in the halls of Congress as they did on the field of battle. I’m so honored to offer my support to these American heroes, and I hope you’ll join me in helping them so that they can serve us all in Washington.

- Sarah Palin

Here is the awesome video of Lt Col West speaking that Sarah was talking about. This man is a true patriot and a real leader. He will be a welcome voice of sanity in D.C.







All throughout our nation’s history, in times of peril, real American heroes have stepped forth to serve. We salute all of the brave men and women who sacrifice ever single day so we can be safe and free. These brave heroes that Sarah highlights are a special breed. They answered the call to defend the nation against foreign enemies, and now that great enemies have emerged from within, enemies of freedom, liberty, and the American way, they have once again answered the call of duty.

These are strong leaders who seek to protect the greatest nation on earth, a nation men like them have fought and died for since her founding. They deserve our appreciation, our admiration, and most importantly, our support.

The Left May Not Be Playing Stupid

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

When I know I'm wrong, I'll be the first to admit it. I have no problem whatsoever doing that. Sometimes, however, I'm stuck, and I'm just not sure. Today is one of those days, so help me out. The other day I wrote:

And though I often wonder about the brain power of anybody who would embrace a liberal worldview, the saddest part of this whole nonsense today is that this time they are playing stupid.

I have since come to wonder if perhaps I gave these people more credit than they deserve. Is it possible they are not acting at all? Is this genuine stupidity?

Could the people on the Left and their lamestream media friends really be of the mind that Governor Palin is inciting violence when she discusses reloading? No matter how many times she has stated, even before this current nonsense, that violence is not the answer, they refuse to let it go, insisting that she is responsible for any thuggish behavior on the part of anyone. Could it be that they really believe that people have risen up to fight--literally--because Governor Palin wrote on her Facebook page that conservatives need to reload and target various Liberals come November?

Again, anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that she was referring to the voting booth. Do these people really lack that common sense? This does seem to be the case, for I am observing them still marching down this ridiculous road. They are looking more and more stupid everyday.

The headquarters of the Alaska Democratic Party was vandalized this weekend. Despite the fact that there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Governor Palin had anything to do with this situation, Patti Higgins, state chair of the Alaska Democratic Party, blames her for it.

Joshua Saul of the Alaska Dispatch writes:

The headquarters of the Alaska Democratic Party were vandalized this weekend, an act the party's leader thinks is due in part to violent feelings being stoked by Alaska's former governor.

"There has become this inflammatory rhetoric, and Sarah Palin is leading the charge," Patti Higgins, state chair of the Alaska Democratic Party, said. "In the beginning I didn't think she knew what she was doing, but now I think she does."

Stupid or just acting?

You know what, Higgins? I don't know about all your buddies because, like I said, I'm still trying to figure it out, but I have a feeling you do know what you're doing. You know Governor Parnell is poised to destroy whichever soul you put up against him, and you're willing to use anything to ruin his chances, even if it means putting forth completely unsubstantiated claims about the former Republican governor of Alaska. So in all fairness to you, maybe you're neither stupid nor acting. Maybe you're just desperate.

Higgins' comments remind me of what I hear everyday at the junior high school where I teach. "It's his fault." "She stole my pencil." "They don't like me because of what she said." When asked for evidence, the response is a childish, "I just know." This type of immaturity can be better tolerated from twelve and thirteen year old children. However, when adults who ought to know better point fingers and accuse a person of being responsible for a deplorable act, offering no proof at all, it really is inexcusable.

The article continues:

Democratic Party headquarters had been receiving "threatening and menacing phone calls" during the week prior, according to statewide party organizer Dave Metheny, who handled most of the angry calls. Over the past week, Metheny said, he's fielded about a call a day from various screaming, swearing callers, along with calls from Alaskans who are angry with the party but express it more calmly and rationally. The focus of the anger is, unsurprisingly, the health care reform bill that passed Congress last weekend. When health care reform passed the Senate on Christmas Eve, Democratic Sen. Mark Begich voted in favor of the bill.

[...]

"It was a message," Higgins said. "Random acts of violence are a form of domestic terrorism and they need to knock it off."

Read the rest here.

One thing that truly sickens me is how readily the Left wants to blame Governor Palin for abetting "terrorism." Higgins is doing it. Rep. James Clyburn is doing it. However, when the time comes to deal with true terrorism, Liberals somehow cannot bring themselves to call it for what it is. Bill Ayers can't be called a domestic terrorist, President Obama struggles to call the Fort Hood shooter a terrorist, and when we do acknowledge one, the Obama Justice Department wants to mirandize him. Instead of the Left being outraged by this insanity, they want to play stupid--or not--and focus their attention on a Facebook note Governor Palin wrote encouraging the American people to vote these loons out of office. As she has so aptly expressed, "Our vote is our arms."

Like Governor Palin, I do not condone vandalism or violence. It's despicable, and there's a better way to voice one's disapproval. Nonetheless, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the Democrats were themselves responsible for this vandalism. People are angry and tempers are flaring, for sure. One might say we're in a bit of a crisis, and we know how Democrats feel about wasting a good crisis. According to White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, that would be unthinkable. Isn't this a great opportunity to further smear Governor Palin? Perhaps they decided headquarters just had to take one for the team.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time Governor Palin was "targeted" by Alaskans. Since she is so concerned about terrorism, as we all should be, perhaps Ms. Higgins should have a talk with some of the Alaskans in her own party who regularly write incendiary things about the governor that would rile people up, things to encourage others to take action against her and her family. Did she ever tell people like Linda Biegel, who was the official Alaska blogger at the DNC, to "knock it off"? Will she touch base with her fellow Alaskan who is even now tweeting Palin hate speech? What about the Twitter death threats C4P reported yesterday? Threats against the governor have escalated since this nonsense surfaced accusing her of inciting violence. Can we get a "knock it off" memo sent to any of these miscreants?

While we're at it, can we get the Left to cry foul about the brick thrown through the GOP office in Michigan over the weekend? How about the bricks thrown through windows at GOP headquarters Thursday in Virginia? Does this matter, or do only Democrats' headquarters matter? Once again, selective outrage prevails. Just in case you need more examples of the extreme violence of the Left that gets buried by the lamestream media, click here for the egg-throwing that took place this past weekend at the peaceful tea party in Nevada, where Governor Palin peacefully spoke about peacefully taking back our country!

Finally, a good teacher is always willing to learn from others. As I fancy myself a good teacher, I will pass on some information I have recently learned. Perhaps the Left, so fond of accusing people of inciting violence, so prone to pointing out cross-hairs, should take a few notes as Devonia Smith of Examiner.com teaches the difference between a survey symbol and a cross-hair:

This is a surveyor's symbol

This is a cross-hair

She then writes:

What was actually on Sarah's site, was a map with district markers (surveyor symbols were used). There was noooooooo "gun imagery" at all. These surveyor symbols were used on the map to indicate the districts of Democrats who had voted "Yes" on the Healthcare reform; apropriately used. Being the weiner that many Democrats are, all Weiner saw was "the cross" and he went into meltdown over it. It appears that, afterall, Weiner missed the bulls-eye and now finds himself in the cross-hair of public ridicule.

Interesting...In light of this, does the Left really want to go round for round--because two can play the game.

We live in a very dangerous time. The threat of violence by radicals who hate our country looms. Our soldiers are daily risking their lives for the sake of freedom and safety. Focusing attention on the governor's use of metaphor and wrongfully accusing her of inciting violence is particularly insulting and unethical in light of this. If it's being done willfully by lying Liberals playing stupid, "knock it off." If it is true stupidity and not an act at all, get a clue.

Alaska Democrats Trying to Silence Palin


The Democrats are at it again. They just keep making up stuff – trying to blame Sarah Palin for anything and everything they can dream up. Why? It’s simple. She is the single greatest threat to their and Obama’s agenda to transform this free nation into a socialist state. Sarah Palin is the one Republican who can defeat Obama in the 2012 presidential election. So they want to take her down.

And they’ve tried every hook and crook, every smear and lie, they can dream up to discredit Sarah Palin. Their poison barbs go out over the Internet on a daily basis. Some are outright lies; some border on the ridiculous.

In Governor Palin’s home state of Alaska, the news media and a tightknit group of bloggers/Democrat operatives have launched many of the attacks. One of these bloggers, Shannyn Moore, writes for the Huffington Post, which slanders and denigrates Sarah Palin on a regular basis. Moore described the group of Alaska bloggers (sometimes referred to as the Alaska Mafia) this way:
Feeling like an endangered species, Alaska progressives are tight. The Alaska Bloggers are tighter. Right after the nomination of Sarah Palin for VP, Wasilla blogger, musician, professor, and all around renaissance man, Phil Munger, threw a party at his home-the first of many. Secrecies were sworn; we were not alone in front of our computers-we had each other; Mudflats, Immoral Minority, Writing Raven, Celtic Diva, Progressive Alaska, Alaska Report, What Do I Know, and myself, Just a Girl From Homer. Documentary crews interviewed us and protected anonymous identities at the time.

Add to that list The Alaska Dispatch. If you run a search for articles about Governor Palin there, you will see regular and blatant attacks against the Governor. One such attack occurred today in the form of a story by Joshua Saul about an isolated incident that the Alaska Democratic Party is trying to fan into an accusation that Governor Palin incited it. (Joshua Saul can be reached at jsaul(at)alaskadispatch.com for comment, by the way.) Saul’s article links to another biased article on the blog.

It is quite obvious what is going on. Obama and the Democratic Party want to shut Sarah Palin up The Democratic Party poured a disproportionate amount of funds into Alaska during the 2008 election. And Governor Palin’s home state remains one of the targeted areas for the attacks against her. The first indication of something that didn’t smell just right was Obama’s direct involvement in Troopergate. Then just recently, his power grab at the Alaska Pipeline, Governor Palin’s signature achievement.

If you want to know who is behind all the lies and distortions about Sarah Palin, follow the money. Authors at A Time for Choosing, Conservatives for Palin, Texas4Palin, and elsewhere have done just that, and have come up with some rather stunning revelations. I’ve put together a mini-bibliography of articles that reveal the coordinated attacks on Governor Palin by the liberal media, Alaska bloggers, the Democratic Party, George Soros (self-proclaimed “owner” of the Democratic Party), and Barack Hussein Obama. Those that follow the money trail are marked appropriately: $$$. Also included are articles that describe threats against Governor Palin and the Tea Party.

It all adds up. Sarah Palin is the one vocal political figure who calls it like she sees it and has the backbone to stand tall and oppose the socialist agenda that Pelosi’s Democrats and Obama are trying to force upon the American people against their will. And Sarah Palin is the one political figure who has the integrity, charisma, and popular support to defeat Obama in 2012. May God grant that it be so!

Conservative Girl with a Voice and 25,000 of her Closest Friends Invade Harry Reid's Hometown



What a sight to behold. Men and women of every age, race and color. Children, some of whom were not yet old enough to walk. Moms pushing strollers along a never-ending, bumpy road along side a two lane traffic-filled highway. Dads educating their sons about America and what she stands for. Grandmas waving flags patriotically while their husbands talked about the good ol' days when men and women strived to achieve the American dream. Individuals with special needs who smiled and held out a hand whenever a new friend passed by along the way. The veterans, many of whom wore veteran caps, whose love for their country was clearly evident in the way they talked about the wars in which they fought for the freedoms we now enjoy and hold most dear. The dogs, many of which were dressed up in patriotic t-shirts happily wagged their tails and licked the hands of children nearby. My fellow Americans, the Tea Party Express event that took place in Searchlight, Nevada, this passed Saturday March 27th was truly a modern-day Conservative Woodstock. An event so huge that people parked and walked what seemed like miles just to get in. I have always been a proud American, and I love my country, but what I experienced this past Saturday has made me an even prouder American and even more grateful to our founders and the Constitution to which our country is based.

For those of you who have never been to Searchlight, Nevada, you need to realize that this little town, population 798, is in the middle of the desert. Picture a deserted area somewhere in the desert and then picture a small town in the middle of this deserted land, and fellow readers, you have Searchlight U.S.A. For one day, for a brief moment in time, this little town became a monument for the Conservative Movement and the future of the tea party movement as a whole. This little desert became the location of an event so huge that its effects will be felt for days. For just a few hours, people from all walks of life, gender and faiths trekked up a deserted highway as if they were apart of a parade, or better yet- a pilgrimage through a desolate land. I will never forget the line of vehicles with the most patient of people inside, many of whom were in awe at what they were witnessing. Like them, I couldn't believe the enthusiasm around me. Like many, I have attended tea parties for months dating back to April 15th, 2009, but the Searchlight Tea Party was different for many reasons. Sure, it was being held in Harry Reid's hometown and the intensity level was at an all-time high at the thought of booting the Nevada senator's tush to the curb, but what really got me was the distances some traveled just to be there in this promise land of sorts where everyone gathered for a common purpose, a common goal. I met people from all over our great country. A woman from Anchorage, Alaska, a couple who, like me, traveled from San Diego , a family from Utah and even a woman from Georgia. I wouldn't be surprised if each and every one of our 50 states was represented there. This voyage united us all, for we were all there as Americans- Americans concerned about the direction our country is headed.

The multitude of signage was phenomenal. Signs with phrases like Real Men Honor the Constitution, God is in Control, Harry Reid has Taxed Me to Death, Sarah is Right, and the classic Don't Tread on Me were just some of my favorites. As I watched everyone around me, the media repeatedly came to my mind. The media and liberal left who continually try to act as if the tea party movement is an Astroturf movement in which people are basically bribed to show up and participate. Let me tell you something: The event I witnessed this past Saturday was as far from an Astroturf event as they come. Astroturf is fake, hard and cold. The tea party movement is a grassroots movement that is authentic, real and growing hotter by the day. There is no denying the fundamental point that Astroturf DOES NOT grow, and if the Searchlight tea party event is any indication, this grassroots movement IS growing and will continue to do so. The difference between liberals and tea party attendees is simple: When liberals get mad, they resort to lying, name-calling and violence. When tea party attendees get angry, they take peaceful action. They gather their loved ones together, and they set out on a voyage where they meet like-minded individuals who love their country and want to set it back on the right course toward fiscal conservatism and smaller government. They chart a course because they want the day to come when their elected officials will actually start LISTENING to them instead of IGNORING them. This is a course that adheres to the constitution instead of ignoring it. This is a course that promotes the use of an individual's First-Amendment right as the fundamental way in which individuals have the ability and the right to stand up and speak out without being told to sit down and shut up. Fellow readers, the left wants us to do just that. They want us to forfeit and take our flags and go home. They want us to roll up our signs and throw them in the recycling bin, but we know better. We know change- real change- is coming, and we know the only way to succeed is to keep up the good and noble fight and not fall prey to the left's attempt to bury us into the earth so many among us have fought to protect with their own sweat and tears.

The men, women and children who attended the Searchlight rally came because they WANTED TOO. They felt compelled to come and witness history in the making. The people I spoke with each had his or her own reason for being there. The majority of individuals came out on this windy, cold day and gathered on this dusty desert floor to let Harry Reid know that they were no longer going to let him abuse his senate powers and the constitution to which our country is based. To put it kindly, these people are pissed off. They are sick and tired of the fat cats in Washington. Our elected officials should be working FOR us, not AGAINST us. One gentleman whom I spoke with believes that Washington changes elected officials. Whether or not we want to admit it, this gentleman is right. Many politicians run with good intentions. They run with the hope of representing their constituents to the best of their ability, but as soon as they get to Washington, the power and greed overtake them. They lose sight of why they were elected, and they let the power and greed seep deep into their veins. Now, I don't know Harry Reid. Maybe he ran for office because, like me, he wanted to make a difference. Although this may have been his intention, it is no secret that he has lost his way. His hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, is a humble place people usually drive right by without a second thought. Just like many other small mining towns in America, it gets overlooked. It is in an isolated part of Nevada, which ironically seems to symbolize Harry Reid- a man whose approval rating is at around eight percent. Perhaps Harry Reid should do what I, and thousands of others did yesterday, and pay his hometown a visit. Maybe he'd learn a thing or two. Visit the corner gas station, or maybe grab a coffee in the cafe. Perhaps he should stop by the casino for a bite to eat. Would he learn what I learned yesterday? Would he learn that those who live in his little hometown and little cities like it all around America are hard-working family types who are living paycheck to paycheck. Sure, he has his supporters. We were all welcomed to such a large outpouring of Harry Reid supporters- 30 in all (and that's being generous) as we made our way through one of the town’s only four-way stop signs. After rolling down our windows, waving and telling the protesters "God bless you" and " Isn't it great we live in a place were we can voice our First-Amendment right," we couldn't help, but giggle at the jeers we got back. I found it ironic that these same people who call us angry mobsters, were the individuals who illustrated the most anger. These same individuals who call us violent right-wing extremists and racists were the same individuals who decided to throw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus as it departed Searchlight. I guarantee the mainstream, or as Sarah Palin correctly calls them "lamestream media" were not going give this insane act the attention it correctly deserved. Instead, they would rather accuse tea party attendees like myself of being racist and anti-American. Well, maybe they should listen to what Sarah told that heckler in Arizona: "Stick around, maybe you'll learn something." I, for one, sure learned something yesterday. I learned how much I love my country. I learned about how beautiful, how authentic the entire tea party movement is. This is a movement that started small and has grown to a massive movement without a single leader. This movement doesn't need a leader because it has thousands of leaders all over this great land. Men, women, children and their pets. These same individuals who walked in from miles back just to gather peacefully and speak out about the fears they have for the direction this country is headed.

These are the same individuals who cheered, laughed and cried when Sarah addressed the crowd. Sarah's speech was phenomenal. While I have met her in the past, this was the first time, I had the honor to see her speak live. It was so amazing! As soon as they began to address her as "Todd's wife; Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig's mom; and Tripp's grandma, the crowd erupted with the loudest cheers and applause. You had to be there, for it was a moment that I will NEVER forget. People were there to voice their First-Amendment right AND to see her; she was truly the woman of the hour. Woodstock may have had Joe Cocker, but the tea party movement can say they have Sarah Palin, and boy, did she give a great speech. She spoke for about a half hour about the importance of love for God and country, for the need to boot Harry out, for the importance of the tea party movement, and for the unfortunate way in which tea party attendees are being unfairly attacked. She thanked us for attending and continuing to stand up and speak out. It was so cool to be there. As she spoke, five jets wrote messages in puffy, white smoke above in the crystal-blue sky. One of the messages read Thank you, Sarah Palin. Another read, God bless Sarah Palin. I learned later that night from a friend that Sarah looked up to the sky at one point and blushed, and I have a feeling she was looking at what was being written. She was overwhelmed at just how amazing the whole event was. It was during her speech that I developed shivers and had tears in my eyes. It finally hit me, and I was overwhelmed at just how BIG this movement really is. There were many other great patriots who spoke that day. People like Andrew Breitbart, Hannah Giles, Victoria Jackson, Joe the Plumber, Danny Tarkanian (whom I’m trying to get on Camille Friend and my radio show), as well as many other great Americans. It was truly a great day. I even ran into California Senate Candidate Chuck Devore and his family as I was walking into the event. We had been tweeting back and forth the whole morning, and I had been passing along traffic updates to them as well, so we laughed about how many people showed up and how windy and chilly it was.

Don't let the pundits and msm tell you that only 7,000 people showed up yesterday. I was there, and I can testify that there were at least 20,000 people there if not more. This is huge when you take into account that this event was held in the boonies, in the desert, in the middle of nowhere right to the side of a two lane road. I will never forget the excitement level. I will never forget how safe I felt with those around me. I bonded with the individuals I spoke with, and while I will probably never see them again, we will forever be connected. Another thing I want to mention is just how patriotic and kind those in attendance were. One incident comes to mind. Being the high-energy girl I am, I didn't bring a chair, and the gentleman next to me asked if I wanted to sit in his. This one person is an indication of just how great the people in attendance were. We were even lucky enough to see a protester, and you know how violent and angry us tea party attendees are, right? We were so mean that we allowed the guy to parade his sign around, and no one confronted him or threatened him because like us, he was there voicing his First-Amendment right, and fellow readers, that is our beautiful God-given right; that is what makes America-America. Yeah, based upon this event, I’d say us tea party folks are pretty downright evil aren't we? Were so evil that we give up our seats for our fellow man and allow others to protest us. So much for the media even attempting to get it right. If the media wanted to report their stories in a straightforward, objective manner, they would be reporting just how neat, polite and intelligent we really are, but the media do not want the truth out there because they know that if the real story got out, they would be toast. Millions would learn how corrupt and biased the lamestream media really are.

I thank God each and everyday that I live in a country where I can stand up tall and freely speak out. Nobody should be told to shut up and sit down if they are simply speaking out on policies to which they disagree. The people who gathered yesterday gathered together in a united front. Whatever the media report, know this: There were no acts of violence yesterday; there were no threats, only promises. We CAN guarantee that come this November, the democrats WILL be shaking in their boots. The democrats WILL lose seats, and the democrats WILL finally realize they were downright WRONG when they called the tea party movement a fringe group that will have no effect on upcoming elections. I'm predicting right now that if the Republicans continue to listen to the American people and chart a course back down the path of Ronald Reagan, we WILL win. In the end, Sarah Palin is right: "No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!”

I hope you enjoy all of these photos my photographer (aka Dad) was nice enough to take. Make sure to click here and here because there are many more photos that I did not have room enough to include here.

Oh, and one more thing. I gotta take a minute to network a little bit: Griff Jenkins of FOX News Channel, my dad met you and gave you my business card. If you read this, Camille and I would LOVE to have you on our show!!!!

Where Does Obama's Loyalty Lie?



In May 2008 Candidate Obama was photographed walking with a copy of "The Post-American World" by Fareed Zakaria. Monte Kuligowski in an American Thinker article, "Obama's Post-American World," questioned how this man running to be our president would read a book about a post-American world (Kuligowski, 2009, ¶10). His choice of reading material was only one of many warning signs pointing to a man whose loyalty lies not with the United States, but elsewhere.

Kuligowski delineated in 18 paragraphs the complete ideology that underpins Obama's policies. Here are three of the most salient ones:
We must recognize that Obama's domestic policies overlap with his global ideology. In Obama's world, the pie is not growing, and everyone should have the same-sized slice. Spreading the wealth around via excessive taxation, unfortunately for those hoping in hope, will lead to a lack of production and prosperity. It will not create equal slices, but instead shrink the American pie (Kuligowski, 2009, ¶5).

Mr. Obama needs a weak America to facilitate his view of global multiculturalism. No country is better than any other. So-called evil regimes are really dispossessed nations that need to be understood and brought to the table. Once at the table, we will see that our mutual interests make self-interests innocuous. Old views of American exceptionalism are simply worn out (Kuligowski, 2009, ¶6).

The President is a creature of postmodern, post-Christian thinking. He is a new kind of leftist. Barack Hussein Obama is essentially a global Marxist. On a global scale, the proletariat consists of the poor nations of the world that have been oppressed by powerful, greedy, self-interested countries. The United States is the prime example of the global bourgeoisie. The evil, capitalistic country, still high on religious opium, represents all that is wrong with the world (Kuligowski, 2009, ¶7).


In April 2009, Obama was gifted with a copy of "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" written in Spanish. Granted, Obama does not understand Spanish and it is safe to say he has not read the book. But, Open Veins is something he would agree wholeheartedly with. The premise of Open Veins is that the US among other countries exploited Latin America - the proletariat nations "oppressed by powerful, greedy self-interested countries" Kuligowski referred to (Tapper and Miller, 2009, ¶1-12). Chavez who heads an authoritarian communist regime is in bed with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. At a UN meeting, Chavez referred to President Bush as "the devil" and routinely railed at the United States as being an "evil imperialist" nation. Sound familiar?

Socialist in the White House

"Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right," Chavez quipped in a June 2009 broadcast (Pretel, 2009, ¶3). "During a decade in government, Chavez has nationalized most of Venezuela's key economic sectors, including multibillion dollar oil projects, often via joint ventures with the private sector that give the state a 60 percent controlling stake." (Pretel, 2009, ¶4).

Speaking of "Comrade Castro," guess who gave ObamaCare high accolades? Why, "Comrade Castro" of course.



Mike Brownfield of Heritage Foundation wrote, "According to an Associated Press report, Castro hailed Obamacare as “a miracle” and “an important battle and a success of (Obama’s) government. Castro went on to favorably compare President Obama’s health care plan to the one Cuba enacted a half century ago" (Brownfield, 2010, ¶2-3).

The foregoing is just a brief summary of the Marxist ideology that underpins everything Obama does. When he was inaugurated, Obama swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic. But his actions, and prior nefarious associations clearly indicate that his loyalty is not to our country. On Thursday, Obama snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at a dinner in the White House. He eschews allies like the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, and Israel. He prefers the likes of the Castro brothers, Hugo Chavez, and Islamic dictators, many of whom fuse communism with Islam.

One bumper sticker turned the name "Obama" into an acronym: "One Big A-- Mistake America." O.B.A.M.A. indeed....

This is My President...



She leads in order to serve, not in order to rule. On the day this photo was taken, she could have been feasting on caviar and drinking Dom PĂ©rignon with the elites in Washington D.C. and primping herself for a presidential run. Gov. Palin in coordination with Samaritan's Purse led a humanitarian mission to distressed villages in remote areas of Alaska to ensure that families there could survive the severe winter. Kneeling before this child to hold her was arguably Gov. Palin's finest hour. My president knows how to prioritize.





A good Commander cares for her troops and elevates them.



There is absolutely no doubt about where my President's loyalty is. She understands that American exceptionalism is timeless. Never will she diminish our standards to "level the playing field."



My President knows the root cause of 9/11 and will fight to destroy it till the day she draws her final breath. My President reads about American heroes. The book in her hand is: The Book of Mychal: The Surprising Life and Heroic Death of Father Mychal Judge.

Summary:

Between Gov. Palin and Obama, there are no pale pastels. The differences are bold and stark. One is a Marxist bent on achieving global equality by diminishing and tearing down the nation he swore to serve. He snubs friends and welcomes enemies. He leads to rule. The other is a Reagan conservative who knows that under the right stewardship our best days are still ahead. She knows that "pretty good" is not good enough, that it is in fact "pretty bad." She knows we are a beacon of hope and freedom in the world; that we are a force for good. She knows that peace is achieved through strength.

So who is fit to serve? Where do their priorities and loyalties lie?

Palm Sunday: Isn't That Just Like Folks?

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Palm Sunday: The same people who shouted, "Hosanna!" cried out, "Crucify Him!" just a few days later. Isn't that just like folks? But Jesus prevailed, and as long as you walk with Him, you will too.

Matthew 21:8-11:

8And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.

9And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

10And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

11And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

This season is a precious time for Christians. No cross = no hope. Empty grave = hope eternal! Thank God for that promise of hope and new life.

Just a little while ago, Governor Palin tweeted:

On Palm Sunday remember Faith,real Hope&Redemption promise. Easter season celebrates new life;look for it,count on Faith to pull u through

Amen! Now, that's what I'm talking about! Speak the Truth with boldness!
