CBS Affiliate Busted on Voicemail Conspiring Against Senate Candidate Joe Miller

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

The media has been busted conspiring once again. This time the target is Alaska's Joe Miller who is running for Senate. Not too many knew who Miller was before he received the support of Governor Palin, and the lamestream media--along with other PDS sufferers--see a loss for him as a win against the Governor. So once again, the media stops at nothing to promote their agenda. This one is particularly troubling, and heads should roll. Nonetheless, we see an example of this truth: "what's done in the dark will come to the light."

Big Government reports:
The following voice mail message was inadvertently left on the cell phone of Joe Miller campaign spokesperson Randy DeSoto.

The voices are believed to be those of the news director for CBS Anchorage affiliate KTVA, along with assignment editor Nick McDermott, and other reporters, openly discussing creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller.

The following is a transcript of a call recorded after CBS Alaska affiliate KTVA called Joe Miller’s Senate campaign spokesperson. The call failed to disconnect properly. It was later authenticated by McDermott, who sent a text to Randy DeSoto stating, “Damn iPhone… I left you a long message. I thought I hung up. Sorry.”

Audio KTVA -

Clearly the reporters were conspiring to set up some type of smear of Joe Miller. With glee, they even cite a recent controversy over an incident involving the Rand Paul campaign, while discussing how they would spread the story via social media after whatever incident they had in mind came off. It also brings to mind another recent episode that ended with Jerry Brown’s California gubernatorial campaign being caught up in controversy when someone from Brown’s camp called Brown’s opponent, Republican Meg Whitman, a “whore.”

This calls into serious question what type of campaign coverage CBS’ KTVA has been providing Alaskans all along, given their reporters’ willingness to conspire against Miller.

This totally makes me sick to my stomach. Can the public no longer count on the media to fairly report the news? That is the media's job, is it not? We saw this type of nonsense here and here when, during the 2008 campaign, "Journolisters" went after Governor Palin after Senator McCain tapped her to be his running mate and she was deemed a threat to their victory plans. We saw it in the media's decision to protect then-candidate Obama from serious scrutiny and downplay his radical associations. We saw it with the conspiracy to depict all Republicans as racists. We see it still--everyday--because the lamestream media has decided that their job is to be the deciding factor in who the public respects and elects. Joe Miller is just their newest target.

May this truth exposed send Alaskans to the polls with a determination to vote for the real Joe Miller, rejecting the Left's sick agenda--so sick they joke and laugh about child molesters. Their behavior is disgusting, and certainly not befitting those who should be honored to represent our First Amendment rights. The term "sick puppies" comes to mind.

Karl Rove Hypocritically Criticizes Governor Palin

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time on Karl Rove because he's so yesterday, it's ridiculous. He's had his underwear in a wad since his establishment Republicans have gotten the boot from people like Christine O'Donnell in Delaware, endorsed by Governor Palin. He's been pouting, whining, and complaining since she shocked the country with her Primary win. Now he's trashing Governor Palin.

London's Telegraph reports:
Karl Rove, the former senior adviser to George W Bush, has cast doubt on Sarah Palin’s viability as a White House candidate, questioning if the American people thought she had the “gravitas” for the “most demanding job in the world”.

“With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of 'that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Mr Rove told The Daily Telegraph in an interview.

Rove is a hypocrite, as Josh Painter points out, for after criticizing Governor Palin's series, he applauds President Obama's appearance on the Comedy Channel:
Karl Rove applauded Jon Stewart for his interview of President Barack Obama on The Daily Show, saying that “Stewart was questioning from the left,” but that “it was a serious attempt. I mean, it was actually a pretty good interview.”

Again, Karl Rove is a hypocrite whose real problem is jealousy that Governor Palin's influence has pushed people like him and his establishment buddies to the back burner.

Sheya, writing for C4P, states:
I’m just curious, what does a candidate have to do to "help" Rove see that he or she "fits in the American calculus" of being President? Having multiple states that you call home...does that do it?

Hey, here’s an idea. After Sarah Palin’s Alaska succeeds in showing the American people who Governor Palin really is, contrary to what you and the media have been trying to manipulate them into believing, and her numbers begin climbing upwards, Mitt Romney can do his own series. He can pick one of the following as a title: “Mitt’s Massachusetts,” “Mitt’s Michigan,” "Mitt’s Utah," or "Mitt’s California." Or you know maybe it’ll be easier to keep it simple, as a friend suggested, maybe he just calls it "Mitt Romney's Estates".

With all due respect to Mr. Rove, I think he’s way past his buy-sell date. It’s no longer 2000. Much has happened since the architect couldn’t get his candidate to win the popular vote even when the climate was all in his favor.

Carl Paladino is Looking for a 'Real Leader'

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Carl Paladino, New York gubernatorial candidate, who somehow acquired the "Tea Party Favorite" title, has shown himself once again to be a jerk at best and a complete nutcase at worst. His "angry boy" persona has not served him well up till now, and it's not getting any more promising.

His own self-defeating antics are responsible for the butt whoopin' the numbers show him receiving from Andrew Cuomo. And while I am all for a no-nonsense kind of leader, especially in my state of New York, I would like one that can combine no-nonsense with common sense--at least a hint of it. Not so with Paladino.

Knowing Americans are fed up with the damage political correctness has done, Paladino has tried to sell himself as the antithesis of such, assuming by so doing he is endearing himself to fed up New Yorkers. While refusing to wear the fear the Left tries to impose upon people is admirable, the wannabe governor's words and actions are not quite so admirable. His behavior has been disgraceful at a time when New York could really use a level-headed--albeit strong--public servant. Paladino, however, has too often shot himself in the foot. And again, he has taken a cheap shot at Governor Palin. With Election Day fast approaching, I ordinarily wouldn't ride the Republican candidate's tail too hard, but since he continues to wag it, since he's totally killed his own chances, and especially since he's used his platform to try to take down Governor Palin, he's got this coming.

The Huffington Post reports:
New York gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino took aim at the prospect of Sarah Palin pursuing a presidential run in 2012 in an interview with the New York Times published on Monday night.

In voicing his opinion on the matter, the Tea Party-backed hopeful reportedly criticized Palin as a "TV personality" in the making who isn't ready to serve the country in the White House.

It's not the first time that Paladino has stated the view in the wake of whispers about plans in the works for Palin to mount a presidential campaign in 2012.

"We need a real leader," explained the Republican candidate to New York-based station WNYC last month. "Not someone who just wants to go and throw a bunch of words around and proverbs and -- I want somebody that is going to be totally responsible. Someone that is a student of that government."

First of all, the media's obsession with asking politicians about Governor Palin and a 2012 run for the presidency is really telling. They have allowed her to rule and reign in their minds, and they are more concerned about what her next step may be than they are with the issues the candidates have espoused. Even though she has set her attention on 2010, they have visions of 2012 dancing in their heads. One must wonder, with all the hoopla surrounding this topic already, what in the world can we expect should she actually decide that she is running in 2012?

Second, with the mess New York state is in, one would think there is a plethora of more pressing issues to discuss with this man who claims to have the goods to move the Empire State forward. Yet somehow his opinion of Governor Palin as a contender for the presidency manages to find its way into the conversation. He should have his hands full. Where does he find the time?

Furthermore, Paladino's decision to take the low road and demean Governor Palin speaks more about his leadership--or lack thereof--than hers. His words concerning her demonstrate a gross lack of insight and awareness of the issues. He presents himself as a maverick who has come to turn things around, one who can buck the establishment and make a difference in New York. But what he illustrates is he's been missing in action or not paying attention. If he were more aware, he would recognize that Governor Palin has both accomplished more and laid more on the line for the sake of tea party conservative principles than anyone else to date. She has given herself completely to these mid-terms elections--making endorsements, donating funds, traveling the nation at an incredibly busy pace, her life even threatened in the process. She has done nothing less than put her efforts, her name, and her reputation on the line so that she can help restore sanity to Washington. All this while some others have taken the safer route--some too cowardly to make the long-shot endorsements, others making endorsements after Governor Palin's candidates have gained ground (but enough about Mitt).

The Governor is responsible for drawing attention to the danger of Obamacare, demanding we "repeal and replace," calling out cap-and-tax, and heralding fiscal responsibility. She has supported our military, taken a stand for common decency at Ground Zero, and stood on the side of border states determined to keep themselves safe despite the federal government's negligence. The work she has done toward energy independence will outlive each of us. She has promoted a culture of life and respect for those with special needs. Governor Palin has almost singlehandedly brought the revival we now see in this country, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Paladino states that Governor Palin merely throws a bunch of words around. Really? Well, with just one word spoken or written, the Governor has repeatedly raised thousands of dollars to help elect yet another common sense conservative who will serve for the right reasons. And we're supposed to take this guy's opinion of her seriously?

Carl Paladino says he wants someone responsible for president, and apparently Governor Palin doesn't fit the bill in his mind. Is he offering himself up as an exemplar of responsibility? Should she be taking notes from him? Well, let's take a look at his version of responsibility in both word and deed. Then you decide who has more credibility--and sensibility.

Douglas Feiden of the New York Daily News provides some background information on Paladino:

Framing everything in take-no-prisoners terms, Paladino weeks ago predicted his primary win and promised the same against Andrew Cuomo, the odds-on front-runner in the race for the governor's mansion.

"I promise you, I will take down Little Ricky [Rick Lazio], and after that, I will take out Prince Andrew," he said.

Paladino, 63, offered up a healthy dose of threats and invective while dining at Sinatra's, his favorite Italian eatery in his hometown of Buffalo.

"There will be blood on the floor," he said, washing down pork braciola with red wine.

"It won't be pretty, it won't be clean, but I will take them down."

Subtle as a pit bull, but with a fast smile and a mischievous glint in his eye, Paladino will vilify any foe and blurt out anything that comes to mind.

He told building contractors in Ronkonkoma that Gov. Paterson was "a wimp . . . really, he's pathetic." Former Gov. George Pataki? He's a "degenerate idiot."

Tough campaigning is a part of running for office, but Paladino's words work to show him as a loose cannon more prone to insults, profanity, and threats than anything else--and it's simply not working for him. In fact, it's worked against him and killed his chances. Paladino's track record shows his brand of responsibility to involve having no language filter, making serious personal allegations without sufficient evidence, and being commitment challenged.

In addition, he almost ruined his Primary chances when disgustingly racist, sexist, and pornographic emails he forwarded were leaked. His defense? He simply stated that he's not politically correct, that the emails were "just humor." The problem is New York state--and the state New York is in--are no laughing matters, and he has hurt the efforts to turn things around.

If Carl Paladino holds himself up as the example of a "real leader," if he is the standard by which leadership is measured, thank God Governor Palin doesn't fit his mold. Why in the world would anyone ask him to validate someone else's leadership credentials, especially someone with the success Governor Palin has enjoyed? It just shows, again, the state of the lamestream media.

Carl Paladino, who fancies himself a no-nonsense voice, needs to add some common sense to his resume'. Until then, he might just want to say nothing at all. Besides, instead of assessing Governor Palin's ability to handle the presidency in 2012, shouldn't he be spending all his energy between now and next Tuesday finding a way out of the hole he's dug for himself in New York?

"Hi, Rachelle. This is Sarah Palin" : A Personl Phone Call from Sarah Palin- A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

(I posted this post on my blog a little over a week ago, but wanted to share it here as well. Enjoy!!!)

When my good friend, Eddie Burke, was invited by the Tea Party Express to address the crowds as part of the group's across-the-country bus tour, I was so excited for him. Eddie is a great public speaker who doesn't pull any punches. I first had the honor and opportunity of getting to know Eddie when I was a frequent guest on his popular Alaska radio show. When he asked me if I could be a correspondent, covering Sarah Palin and national issues, I was so excited and jumped at the chance!!! I always tell everyone it was Eddie who gave me my first, big break. That is why is was an honor to serve under him as his press secretary when he decided to run for lieutenant governor of Alaska this past Spring. Although Eddie did not win the primary, he fought hard to the end, and I could not have been prouder of him. He truly is the voice of Alaska, and I know God has big plans for him. As the spokesperson for the newly formed Anchorage Tea Party, Eddie has made a huge impact and the popularity of this group is undeniable. Eddie's work on behalf of the tea party movement makes him a perfect fit as a speaker for the Tea Party Express. I am excited that Eddie and the Tea Party Express are coming to San Diego this Thursday. It will be fun to get to see him again and to introduce him to my family!!!

When Eddie told me he would be addressing the Tea Party Express crowd, I was so stoked for him. He also told me Sarah Palin, a fellow Alaskan and friend, would be addressing the crowd as well. I told him that he would have a blast and to keep me updated about his exciting experience. I jokingly told him that when he spoke with Sarah that I'd love to talk to her. Little did I know that this little joke would become a reality. While at work yesterday, I received a text from Eddie letting me know that Sarah may be calling me before her speech, I was speechless. This helps to illustrate just how much of a real deal and cool person Eddie Burke is!!! Those of my readers who have the pleasure of knowing him know exactly what I mean. Here is a guy who is about to address thousands of people, and he was thinking about his friend. This is just who Eddie Burke is!!!

When I saw my phone light up about 45 minutes after Eddie's text, I quietly slipped out of the room, as I was at work, and said "hello." I was so ecstatic to hear a familiar voice on the other end: "Hi, Rachelle. This is Sarah Palin." WOW, WOW, WOW!!! I mean, how cool is that??? You, regular readers of my blog, know how much I admire and look up to Sarah Palin. She is the reason why I began this blog and hold the political aspirations that I do. No words could express how much she inspires me. Although I have had the opportunity of meeting her before at her Reno book signing (I was covering the event for Eddie's show), getting this call from her made my day. It was TOTAL AWESOMENESS, as I like to say and definitely one of the BEST... DAYS... EVER!!! Sarah was so thoughtful and genuine. I will never forget her words of wisdom and the complement she gave me regarding my recent blog interview with her daughter, Bristol. I thanked her for all she has done and all she will continue to do in the name of common-sense conservatism. She is simply THE BEST and THE REAL DEAL, that's for sure!!!

I walked away from our conversation so proud of Sarah and so in awe of her character. Here is a woman, a modern-day political rock star who, just before she was to address a HUGE crowd, took the time to call this average girl- a conservative blogger, this Conservative Girl with a Voice. WOW!!! How ironic that I met her for the first time in Reno, Nevada, and she called me from Reno, Nevada.... I believe that everything happens for a reason, and God is using Sarah for His purpose. Her calling me yesterday illustrates just the kind of individual she is. Her genuine, kind and caring nature are three traits that all too often are forgotten in politics. We could use more individuals like Sarah Palin in the political arena!!! Thank you, Sarah, for making this conservative girl's day and for all you do for America!!!

Bristol Rocks on DWTS, Acknowledges Voter Support

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Bristol Palin was fabulous on Dancing with the Stars last night. Not only was her technique sound, but she came with great fire--and the judges loved it!

Deborah Starr Seibel reports:
But what everyone in the audience was talking about was the surprisingly strong showing by Bristol Palin, who managed to rack up 23 points for her graceful tango before coming in second-to-last for the marathon. Nevertheless, she wowed with a newfound confidence on the dance floor.

"I realized that if I didn't go all out, I was gonna go home," said Palin, who is known to be painfully shy. "So I tried my best to go all out." The 20-year-old single mom somehow managed to survive dancing in a disastrous monkey costume last week, to say nothing of forgetting her steps.

That survival has led to much speculation that the Tea Party may be warming up their voting fingers in preparation for next week's election by voting for Republican Sarah Palin's daughter. Does Bristol think that's what's going on? "I'm sure they're backing us up," she said. "It's just my mom's supporters."

Added her partner, pro Mark Ballas, "I have no idea what the Tea Party is. But I'm from England and I like tea. So, whether it's a tea party, a coffee party, or any other beverage party — as long as it's non-alcoholic — we appreciate any support we can get."

Of course we're backing her up! Every vote counts--and we're exercising our right! Tonight we'll find out what next week holds for Bristol and Mark.

Dance Bristol Dance!

J.D. Gordon: Obama Smarter than Palin? Don't Believe the Hype

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

When Barack Obama stepped on the scene, those who believed the hype praised him for his intellect, his IQ, and how his massive brain power was going to lead America somewhere we had never been before. I've yet to see the evidence of this uncommon intelligence he supposedly possesses, but that's what the Kool Aid drinkers told us. On the contrary, Governor Palin was depicted as unread and unintelligent, a lie as large as the state from which she hails. J.D. Gordon of The Washington Times offers this:
While most pundits and late-night comedians place President Obama far ahead of Sarah Palin in terms of intellect, perhaps Public Enemy's best-known hit - "Don't Believe the Hype" - is a fitting tribute to this myth.

Propped up by the mainstream media as the intellectual version of Superman, Mr. Obama with his eloquent, if not robotic, public appearances has fed into the perception that he is one of the most brilliant people in world history - a political Albert Einstein, worthy of the Nobel Prize.

Mrs. Palin meanwhile, has been mercilessly attacked by most in the media and chronically lampooned on late-night TV to the point where some believe she said things that actually were said by comedians.


In fact, given Mr. Obama's track record in comparing his 2008 presidential campaign to the results of his presidency thus far and contrasting it with Mrs. Palin's steadfast leadership of the Tea Party movement, which is changing the political landscape of the country, I would argue that she is actually smarter than Mr. Obama.

First, Mrs. Palin understands that lofty campaign promises don't equate to good governance. Mr. Obama's presidential campaign, centered around "hope and change," has led to runaway spending in a roughly $800 billion stimulus bill, dramatically increased unemployment to roughly 10 percent - twice the rate of George W. Bush's administration - and ushered in Obamacare, which the majority of Americans oppose.

Mr. Obama's No. 1 priority, closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, as he mandated within hours of being sworn into office, went nowhere, as did outreach to Iran and now the Taliban fighting our troops in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, unilateral missile-defense cuts and world tours of apologies, complete with bowing to foreign leaders, have made the country less safe.

Given such factors, it should not be surprising that Mr. Obama's approval rating has plummeted from 68 percent at inauguration to a mere 44 percent less than 2 years later. Mrs. Palin campaigned in 2008 for balancing the budget, creating jobs, promoting energy independence and supporting the troops, issues that have remained crucial over the past two years.

Unlike Mr. Obama, Mrs. Palin can relate to Main Street. While the Obama family jetted to Martha's Vineyard, Maine and the Spanish Mediterranean coast last summer alone, the Palins have been connecting with the American public throughout the United States in dozens of speaking venues and other appearances, including "Dancing With the Stars." In a recent California speech, Mrs. Palin pointed to the plight of Central Valley farmers who can't get water for their crops while 37,000 jobs have been lost in the process - all to save a 2-inch fish (the delta smelt) which was rescued through an environmentalist lawsuit. "In Alaska, we call a 2-inch fish bait," she said wryly.

Last but not least, mainstream media and late night-comedy portrayals are deeply flawed when it comes to Mrs. Palin. It is easy to look smart when surrounded by teleprompters like Mr. Obama. In those rare instances when Mr. Obama strays from the script, we end up with comments like "the Cambridge police acted stupidly" that precipitated the infamous White House beer summit with his friend professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard and Cambridge, Mass., Police Sgt. James Crowley. In contrast, Mrs. Palin relies heavily on speech notes during her public appearances and often speaks extemporaneously. Her folksy ways and plainspoken language are simply part of her charm and a reflection of her genuine character, not any indication of her intellectual capacity.


Though the mainstream media and comedians can say what they will, Americans will have their say at the ballot box. When voters scratch below the surface of myths that have been constructed carefully around Mr. Obama and Mrs. Palin and compare the myths to the track records over the past two years, they just might reconsider who is smarter.

Multiple Sources Debunk Politico's Palin Hit Piece

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

There's something to be said for learning from the mistakes of others. Yet when it comes to Governor Palin, people can't seem to do that. After Michael Joseph Gross's Vanity Fair article that brought shame on him when, one after another, real sources debunked his anonymous sources, Jonathan Martin of Politico puts himself in the same boat with his hit piece.

His article, "Sarah Palin is wreaking havoc on the campaign trail, GOP sources say" makes all types of claims about the Governor, accusing her of being difficult to work with, unaccommodating, and totally unorganized--rude and incompetent basically. He cites "sources" to substantiate his claims. His hit piece has come crashing down on his head, and a retraction and apology are in order. Many are calling for just that.

He claims, for example, that she has rudely backed out of interviews with Mark Levin and Glenn Beck. Lies! In fact, Beck calls it an "out and out lie." Outraged, here's what he said about this "trash":

Mark Levin calls the piece "a flat out lie" and says "Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me." Listen:

Governor Palin responded this way:
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny...ya just made big mistake lying about Levin, Beck, Rush...U can lie about me, but taking on the Big Guns? Not smart

The hit piece also states that Governor Palin snubbed the Grassley and King campaigns in Iowa. Lies! My fellow blogger and truth seeker, Shane Vander Hart, contacted them himself. This is what Shane wrote (emphasis added):

Eric Woolson, spokesperson for Senator Chuck Grassley’s campaign, for the record said, that the anonymous source “does not represent the Senator’s views.” So evidently Senator Grassley was not displeased with any interaction they had with the Palin camp.


I have yet to contact the Iowa GOP and will follow-up, but I did talk with Jeff King with Congressman King’s campaign he said that they “didn’t have any inkling that we’d get her for a rally. We would love to have her though.” He said they did not expect that it would work out. He said nobody from their campaign talked with Martin and they certainly don’t have any complaints about Palin.

Click here to read Shane Vander Hart's full article, which Governor Palin retweeted yesterday.

Not only is Jonathan Martin's no-name sources lying, even the named sources debunk his claims.

Various other sources, including Big Journalism, also demand a retraction or blast this piece of crap that Politico calls journalism. C4P even received the following from Charlie Davis, CEO of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC). It's an email they sent to Martin himself:

Hey Jonathan,

Hope you're doing well. Just read your article on Palin and wanted to add my two cents. (this wasn't requested by anybody and feel free to quote me if you'd like)

As you know the 2010 SRLC was the largest Republican Leadership Conference in 30 years, with more speakers, more press and more attendees than ever before. Governor Palin's staff was incredibly easy to deal with and very professional.

I interacted with every major GOP personality in the country leading up to the conference and can tell you first hand that the only thing different about Governor Palin was the intensity of the interest from the attendees, sponsors and even other speakers.

She's easily the most requested surrogate our party has and it's a shame that Republicans would rather gripe that they can't get more of her time instead of being appreciative of everything that she does do.

Charlie Davis
President and CEO
2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference

Today, Governor Palin discussed the issue with Glenn Beck on his radio show. Her modus operandi is to call it as she sees it, so she called Martin a "punk."

Retrieved from C4P, who retrieved it from The Right Scoop, here you go:

This post is just a buffet of information gathered from my colleagues who care about truth and honesty, who are committed to holding people accountable for what they say and do. The behavior of some who fancy themselves professionals is deplorable. More than that, it's just plain stupid. These people simply never learn their lesson, nor do they learn from those who have tried the same tactics and failed--over and over again. Palin Derangement Syndrome, with its accompanying fear and desperation, have disabled all their reasoning capabilities.

Those of you who are not yet convinced that there is an all-out determination to destroy Governor Palin, no matter what, please open your eyes. If you really care about truth, embrace it, and work to expose and destroy its enemies everywhere they surface. Governor Palin would be the first to tell you that the words she speaks and the actions she exemplifies should be evaluated as others' are. However, the lies, the slander, and the attacks on her character are beyond the pale. What her character assassins are not willing to accept, however, is that none of it will cause her to wander off message, cower in fear, or retreat. It only fires her up even more--and fires up those of us who stand in her corner.

Onward and upward...

Governor Palin Shows Juan Williams More Graciousness Than He Ever Showed Her

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

NPR fired Juan Williams Wednesday night for expressing his nervousness when on a plane with people who choose to identify themselves first as Muslims. For this he gets fired. This is what the Left does to people who don't follow their agenda: silence them by any means necessary. Juan Williams was speaking for himself. Truth be told, he simply voiced a feeling that many Americans share. It's called being honest.

The hypocrisy of the Left is disgusting. MSNBC, for example, makes reprehensible comments about conservatives, particularly Governor Palin and tea party Americans, and people on their side of the aisle couldn't care less. Christians and their values are mocked by the Left daily, and nothing is said. We all know if Juan Williams had said Christians make him nervous, or tea partiers are dangerous, he would have been applauded rather than fired. But voicing his own nervousness when encountering Muslims on a plane gets him fired. That's Liberals for you--and that's the hypocrisy to which they are married. NPR is more desirous of political correctness than truth from their employees, having no respect, apparently, for First Amendment rights.

I'm no fan of Juan Williams, and I take umbrage at the disrespectful, sexist comments he's made about Governor Palin (see video), but NPR was out of line to fire him. Where were they when given the opportunity to denounce his sexist comments about the Governor? This firing is just further evidence of the Left's glaring hypocrisy and intolerance for anything that opposes their agenda. His association with Fox News has long been a thorn in their side, and his recent comments when speaking to Bill O'Reilly, gave them the excuse they needed to send him packing. This is the real deal behind all this. NPR, in bed with George Soros and receiving tax-payer dollars, clearly has an agenda. Like all Liberals, NPR wants to silence conservative media, like Fox News, because they have no respect for free speech whatsoever. More disturbing, this love affair the Left has cultivated with political correctness is going to lead us down a most dangerous road if unchecked.

Governor Palin, modeling true graciousness and class, has come out in support of Williams in spite of how he has treated her. She showed her support on Twitter several times today. Here are a few of those tweets:

1. NPR defends 1st Amendment Right, but will fire u if u exercise it. Juan Williams: u got taste of Left's hypocrisy,they screwed up firing you

2. Juan Williams: Going Rogue. NPR should receive NO fed tax dollars if it operates as intolerant, private radio. Mr. President, what say you?

3. NPR & LSM: you're shocked at public outrage over your censorship of Juan? This is what happens when our Constitution starts shaking her fist

Governor Palin followed up her many tweets with a Facebook note, joining others who are calling for the defunding of NPR:

At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we’ve found a good candidate for defunding. National Public Radio is a public institution that directly or indirectly exists because the taxpayers fund it. And what do we, the taxpayers, get for this? We get to witness Juan Williams being fired from NPR for merely speaking frankly about the very real threat this country faces from radical Islam.


I don’t expect Juan Williams to support me (he’s said some tough things about me in the past) – but I will always support his right and the right of all Americans to speak honestly about the threats this country faces. And for Juan, speaking honestly about these issues isn’t just his right, it’s his job. Up until yesterday, he was doing that job at NPR. Firing him is their loss.

If NPR is unable to tolerate an honest debate about an issue as important as Islamic terrorism, then it’s time for “National Public Radio” to become “National Private Radio.” It’s time for Congress to defund this organization.

Read Governor Palin's full Facebook note here.

Why is this far-Left radio network being funded by our tax-payer dollars anyway? Looks like it's time for a change, and NPR has just dug itself a hole they may not be able to get out of. I hope calling attention to themselves simply because they hate Juan Williams' connection to Fox News was worth it because people are not going to let this go. NPR may have just cost itself some federal dollars. And to that, I say, "Well, it's about time."

I repeat: I'm not a fan of Juan Williams. I am a fan of truth, however. The truth is this: once again, the Left displays its intolerance, hypocrisy, and utter depravity. And once again, Governor Palin extends graciousness to one who has been none too gracious toward her.

Governor Palin Serves Up Jackass for Dinner

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Why do people on the Left do this to themselves over and over? Why must they allow their Palin Derangement Syndrome to expose their own weaknesses while trying to find weaknesses in Governor Palin? Wouldn't it be better--less embarrassing--to throw in the towel now before they look even more petty and yes, more stupid?

I am a couple days late weighing in on this due to my crazy schedule lately. However, I couldn't let it pass without adding my two cents to the mix.

While addressing the Tea Party Express Rally in Reno earlier this week, Governor Palin spoke about not getting overly excited about the November elections just yet. There's still work to be done, the Governor stated, and warned people not to "party like it's 1773."

Sitting around waiting for something over which to yell, "Gotcha!" to Governor Palin--as the Left usually does--this was their moment. She doesn't know history! 1773? Ha! They flew into action to expose a perceived lack of knowledge on her part.

The problem is they are the ones lacking knowledge. Suffice it to say, however, now they've been schooled--by the one they call stupid. Now isn't that...ironic?

1773 is the year of the original Boston Tea Party, a fact clearly foreign to the Left. So guess who took to Twitter to make a fool of themselves: PBS's Gwen Ifill and Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos. Several other PDS sufferers joined in the giddiness and retweeted the two. The Huffington Post--the Huff and Puff, as I like to call them for all the hot air they blow--actually reprinted Moulitsas' tweet.

Here are the screen shots:

No, not "so smart," Markos. Just smart enough to make you look stupid.

Noel Sheppard points out:

Of course, all these geniuses needed to do was a simple Google search of "historical events of 1773." The first response would have helped them identify that the Boston Tea Party happened on December 16th of that year.

I guess it's easier for arrogant members of the Left to just ridicule rather than research. Certainly, that's not at all surprising from the perpetually factually-challenged Moulitsas.

Governor Palin eventually weighed in herself, retweeting Michelle Malkin after Gwen Ifill refused to own up to her PDS-inspired gaffe:

Gwen Ifill, et al... Really? Silly. RT @michellemalkin: 'Stand down,' says @pbsgwen re. her Palin bashing. Own up, dear. http://is.gd/g8AYb

It must be tough to be a bitter Liberal frightened by the "insignificant" Sarah Palin. I almost feel sorry for them--almost. These people fall for it every single time. What am I saying? Am I actually suggesting Governor Palin knew exactly what would happen when she threw 1773 out there? You betcha! Josh Painter says it best:

We're willing to bet that when Sarah's dad taught her how to fish, hunt and trap, little did he realize that some day it would have a political payoff.

Donkey--or shall we say jackass--for dinner, anyone?

Governor Palin's Tea Party Express Speech and CNN Interview in Reno

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Today, Governor Palin spoke at the Tea Party Express Rally in Reno, Nevada:

Below is the video of Governor Palin speaking to CNN after the rally. Here she talks about the tea party's message of limited government, Constitutional principles, the planks of the GOP, and not allowing her critics to shift her focus. She states emphatically that there is room in the Republican party for common sense moderates and independents who want to stand on the side of time-tested truths.

Ian Lazaran makes a great point:
I thought the narrative was that she was scared to talk to anyone who wasn't a conservative or didn't work for Fox News. How is it then that she's talking to Shannon Travis from CNN?

Happy 20th Birthday, Bristol Palin!

Tonight is Week 5 of Dancing With The Stars, and today is Bristol Palin's birthday! On behalf of all of our authors at the Sarah's Web Brigade, I want to wish Bristol a very happy birthday and an outstanding night at DWTS tonight! May you have a blessed birthday, and may the Lord's blessings follow you for many birthdays to come!

Bristol and Mark had an interesting week, of which we can get glimpses from Mark's DWTS Journal at USA Today (h/tp DanceBristolDance):

Oct. 13


Tuesday night was terrible on my nerves. Terrible! Being in jeopardy is not fun at all. I get anxious, but I don't stress because I'm 100% confident that Bristol and I are prepared when we hit the dance floor. It's a cliché but we live to not regret, which is what drives us to work as hard as we do. But those commercial breaks in between the results seem like they're thirty minutes each!


Now, about those judges. I was really disappointed and angry with the 4 that we received. I thought the scoring was a little inconsistent this week. I've been doing this a long time and I genuinely think our performance was worthy of a score higher than that 4! The great news is that will continue to motivate us and drive us to work tirelessly to prove those judges wrong!

Oct. 15


This week we have the Jive and since Bristol didn't have any speaking engagements, we were able to have long days of rehearsal on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. She's picking up the steps quickly and we've really progressed over the past few days. We'll also be at it all weekend, as repetition is key to really get the routine down.I think you'll love our costumes and the song we're dancing to on Monday! Bristol is working really hard this week and the Jive is definitely her most challenging dance yet.


I'm really excited about my plans for Bristol's birthday. Her actual birthday is Monday, but I've got a few things planned for her. I'm taking her to the L.A. Kings hockey game. Since she's a huge hockey fan she should really love it!

(Sunday update: We had so much fun at the LA Kings game Friday night! Bristol was very surprised and couldn't stop smiling! We were given custom jerseys, Bristol had a birthday greeting on the big screen, we sat next to Vince Vaughn in the second row, AND we got to meet a couple of the players after their big win. If you ever have the chance to go to an NHL game, make sure you sit as close to the ice as possible. The players are huge guys and the game moves so fast. And thanks so much to Kings marketing manager Heather Bardocz and her team for making Bristol's surprise so memorable!

In addition to attending the L. A. Kings hockey game on Friday night as an early birthday present from Bristol to Mark, the dancing duo also attended a Habitat for Humanity Walk on Saturday(h/tp DanceBristolDance), as reported here :

Bristol and Mark will be dancing the jive with a Halloween theme tonight on Week 5 of DWTS. Be sure to tune in at 8 PM EST on ABC to watch their performance and VOTE!

As a reminder, you can vote by phone by calling 1-800-868-3407 or by texting 3407. Voting online can be done at the Dancing With the Stars Voting Page.

Voting by phone is open from the start of the show until 30 minutes after the show ends. Online voting is open from 8 PM EST on Monday night until 11 AM EST Tuesday morning. You can use your Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and personal e-mail accounts to vote. There is more information about voting at VOTING — HOW IT WORKS.

As you know, our votes are factored in with the judge’s scores. We know Bristol and Mark’s performance will be outstanding, so let’s do our part to help them win!

Sarah Palin's Alaska: Separating Sourdoughs from Cheechakos

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Thanks to PalinTV, you can check out this sneak peek of Sarah Palin's Alaska which will premiere on TLC November 14th. Having myself spent a month in Alaska during the summer of 2009, I recommend the series and am sure it will be enjoyable and educational for all. I've been to such places as Africa and Guatemala, and Alaska ranks right up there in depth of experience for me. What a beautiful, majestic place; no wonder they call it God's Country.

As the clip below shows, while fishing, the Palin family encountered some mama grizzlies--and they managed to remain calm! I suppose that's what separates sourdoughs from cheechakos!

Don't miss Sarah Palin's Alaska.

The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Below is the video of a Sean Hannity segment, retrieved from PalinTV. Stephen Mansfield was a guest on the television show to discuss The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin, the new book he and David A. Holland co-authored.

The interview was of special interest to me because I'm currently reading the book and am fascincated by the things the authors learned through exclusive access to Governor Palin's parents, siblings, friends, and pastors who have all played a role in who she is.

The book breaks down the things that have most influenced Governor Palin's worldview, thus shaping the person we see today. The fact is her perspectives in life cannot be separated from the faith and values she holds most dear and, Mansfield and Holland conclude, these originated mostly from four truths:

1. Family has fashioned her soul.
2. Alaska and the idea of the state are primary for Palin.
3. Palin has been influenced by the Eskimo view of women.
4. Palin lives and leads from a sense of divine destiny.

Mansfield discussed with Hannity the moment as a child when Governor Palin sensed a call to politics. He shared the difference between President Obama's extremely liberal theological perspective and Governor Palin's Pentecostal-rooted faith. And he commented on the video that surfaced during the 2008 campaign where she was being prayed over, which led to the lamestream media's completely unfair and severely uneducated characterization of the Governor's faith.

The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin has been an interesting read so far for me, as it points out the fact that when a person's faith truly matters to her--is truly a reality in her life--it cannot help but fashion how she views the world, how she operates within the world, and the impact she'll leave upon it.

You can order the book here.

Gov. Palin Electrifies San Jose Freedom Forum Crowd

Gov. Palin Speaks to San Jose Crowd retrieved from PalinTV.

H/T PalinTV and Ian Lazaran, Conservatives4Palin

Governor Palin yesterday spoke at the Liberty & Freedom Foundation Bay Area Forum, in San Jose, CA where she addressed American Exceptionalism, the deficit, economy, financial reform, fiscal discipline, health care, limited government, personal responsibility, and taxes.

Governor Palin's Tweet to Kathleen

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Earlier today, Governor Palin tweeted:
We love you, love you, love you Kathleen... in Michigan! We pray for your health and happiness! (From your friends all across America.)

This, of course, left people asking, "Who is Kathleen?" It is likely Governor Palin was speaking to a young girl from Michigan who has a brain disorder and was mocked over the Internet.

Deborah Hastings reports:

Kathleen [Edward] is in the final stages of Huntington's disease, a genetic brain disorder that claimed the life of her 24-year-old mother, Laura, last year.

Jennifer and Scott Petkov have posted doctored images on Facebook of Laura in the arms of the Grim Reaper, and Kathleen's face above a set of crossbones. Neighbors also say the Petkovs built a coffin, put it on their truck and drove it up and down the street, honking the horn, ABC News said.

Jennifer Petkov admitted to posting the images on Facebook and said she did it for "personal satisfaction," knowing it "burns Rebecca Roses's a-- raw for me to make fun of her dead daughter on that page."

Although the Petkov family later apologized for their actions, one must wonder what kind of people would ever do such a thing in the first place?

It appears that Governor Palin, who has both talked about and lived out a real commitment to children, wanted to reach out with a message of love and faith for Kathleen and her family.

Josh Painter expresses one reason the Governor may have felt such a connection to the horrible way Kathleen was treated. He writes:

Hence Gov. Palin's tweet. She knows all too well the kind of hatred that has been directed at little Kathleen and her mom. Trig Palin, the governor's youngest offspring and a Down Syndrome child, has been photoshopped on leftist websites as a storm trooper from "Star Wars" and as the devil -- everything, in fact, except a child of God. Some of the deranged Haterade drinkers, including The Atlantic's Andrew Sullivan, insist to this day that Trig is not Gov. Palin's child, despite not having even a shred of evidence to support their delusional charges.

So it's no wonder that little Kathleen would find a soft spot in the Mama Grizzy's heart.

Much is spoken about Governor Palin's love for the great outdoors, love for the military, love for America. Even more is spoken about 2012 and about what she might do--will she run or won't she. Let the record show, however, in the midst of all the debate and all the speculation, more than weighing in on policy and political parties, more than using influence to impact the state of affairs in Washington, and more than being qualified to run this country, Governor Palin loves the most vulnerable among us. She advocates for them, does right by them, and even speaks to them. I join her in telling Kathleen Edward that America loves her, and I join her in lifting up prayers for this young girl. May God bless Kathleen and show her His incredible power--in Jesus' name.

ADN Pursues Miller who Broke No Laws; Leaves Murkowski Alone

The Anchorage Daily News is conducting a smear campaign against Joe Miller for using Unemployment and Medicaid Benefits - both perfectly legal activities - but has nothing to say about Sen. Murkowski who is alleged to have had a cocaine habit (sale, possession, transport, distribution, of cocaine is generally a felony).

Further, public records show that Sen. Murkowski used, then represented PMBR, which helped people cheat on the Alaska bar exam - an exam the good Senator failed four times till finally passing on her fifth attempt. PMBR had to pay an $11.9 million judgment for stealing copyrighted test questions and giving to students for a fee.

What do we hear from the ADN? Silence. Not even one chirping cricket to pierce the publication's stillness. If Joe Miller or Gov. Palin were accused of cheating and facilitating cheating on a bar exam; and felonious drug use, the ADN would blare it on the front page for months straight.

Tell the ADN to investigate these very serious allegations against a sitting Senator, who lost a primary and is in the throes of a futile write-in campaign.

Send a letter to the editor, email newsroom@adn.com, reach out to them on Facebook, and Twitter.

Lessons We Can Learn from the Iron Lady

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:
A very happy birthday to Baroness Thatcher! There are so many lessons we can learn from her excellent example. She once said, “If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you have to have a touch of iron about you.” She sure did. Like her friend Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher had a steel spine. Her excellent defense of the free market is as relevant and true today as it was two decades ago. I encourage people to visit her foundation’s website and listen or read her speeches. There is a wealth of inspiration in the timeless truths she lived and led by.

Happy 85th Birthday, Margaret Thatcher!

SarahPAC's Most Successful Quarter; Beats Out Clinton, Obama

SarahPAC had its most successful quarter raising $1.2 million and raising more money than Clinton's and Obama's PACs, Conservatives4Palin reported today in separate articles written by Whitney Pitcher and Ian Lazaran.

"SarahPAC has raised over $4.6 million, with one quarter left in the 2009-2010 cycle. For the entire 2005-2006 cycle, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama raised $2.5 million and $4.2 million, respectively, for their PACs," Lazaran wrote.

Both authors reported that the majority of SarahPAC's donations were true grassroots, originating from donors who gave $250 or less.

Palin Kicks off NewsMax's "Make America Great Again"

Palin Interview with Michael Reagan Excerpt retrieved from NewsMax

Gov. Palin's interview with Michael Reagan covering ObamaCare, Iran, the economy, creeping Shariah, and a possible Palin presidency on NewsMax aired today at 13:00 (1 PM) EDT. David Patten, NewsMax, covered key points of the interview, which I watched in its entirety.

"I say this with first the preface that I hate war, and I hate the idea of our innocent blood being shed, and yet I realize that yes a military option has to be on the table. Joe Lieberman was right when he 'yes the negotiations, the sanctions, all that - yes we have to try that' - of course the military option has to be on the table, and these evil, evil dictators - is what I would call them - these evil men who would think that they are going to control America and make us fearful, no we have to rise up and we have to show our steel spine," Gov. Palin said.
"Israel needs us; we need Israel...the allies need to be working together" she said. "We have to recognize that a nuclear weapon in that country's hands is not just Israel's problem or America's problem, it is the world's problem," Gov. Palin said. "It could lead to that Armageddon; it could lead to World War III that could decimate so much of this planet."


Michael Reagan spoke about French concerns over Shariah law taking a foothold in their country and how Newt Gingrich also spoke about it happening here.
"Americans will never stand for Shariah being the law of the land, whether it be affecting a segment of the population, a demographic, certainly not in its entirety all over our country. Americans will not stand for this, because Americans are smart enough to know - Shariah law if that were to be adopted - allowed to govern in our country - it will be the downfall of America, and too many Americans are on to this already and are starting to rise up and send the message to our federal officials that no, we will not put up with any hint of Shariah law being any sort of law of the land," Gov. Palin said.

ObamaCare and Death Panels
"I was about laughed out of town for bringing to light what I called death panels because there's going to be faceless bureaucrats who will based on cost analysis and some subjective ideas — somebody's productivity in life — somebody is going to call the shots to whether your loved one will be able to receive health care or not: to me, death panels. I called it like I saw it and people didn't like it," Gov. Palin said.
Tea Party

Michael Reagan asked if Gov. Palin thought the Tea Party could maintain itself as it is or if it would have to grow into a third party. Gov. Palin spoke about how the Whig Party died in 1860 and became what is now the Republican Party with Abraham Lincoln as the the GOP's first President. The Whig Party died, she said, because it did not follow the will of the people. But, Gov. Palin said "I don't believe the Tea Party needs to become a party with positions, titles, and power struggles within." To the contrary, the grassroots nature of the Tea Party is its beauty holding both parties accountable.

Ronald Reagan's Effect on Gov. Palin as a Child

Gov. Palin came of political age at the height of the Reagan presidency. She said this was the time when she really learned about good and evil. "It was Ronald Reagan leading our country toward that good, toward that optimism; I believe I have greatly benefited from the influence of Ronald Reagan," she said.

"Ronald Reagan left us with a blueprint of how to do things right."

Michael Reagan invited Gov. Palin to visit the Reagan ranch and suggested she visit the USS Ronald Reagan.

On a Palin 2012 Presidential Run and Presidency

"It isn't my call. It's the people of America, whether they would be ready for someone a bit unconventional, a bit out of the box, being used to taking on the establishment on both sides of the aisle, or if they want someone a little more conventional, maybe a little more electable."
