My Big Announcement!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Many of you may already be aware of the big news that I am about to share with all of you. I joined Team Sarah shortly after Sarah was announced John McCain's running mate. Team Sarah is a great community in which to interact with fellow Sarah supporters. When I joined Team Sarah, I had no idea of how politically involved I would become in the months to follow. As the San Diego Regional Organizer for the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee, I have had a blast educating others around my community and online about Sarah and her message of common sense conservatism. I have gotten to know so many wonderful people because of Team Sarah and 2012 Draft Sarah. I have also gotten to know so many amazing Alaskans who have become great friends. Sarah is blessed to live in a state with so many great salt-of-the-earth people.

Team Sarah has an weekly online radio show entitled Join Team Sarah on Blog Talk Radio. The creator of the show, Martha Cano, recently asked me if I would like to host a show once a month. I told her that I would be honored to be a host and thanked her for believing in me. I also want to thank Jackie, over at Team Sarah too. Like Sarah, I believe God has a plan for my life. I will continue to listen to him as he leads me down the right path. I firmly believe in "plowing through" an open door when the He opens it. I am excited that hosting this radio show will give me the opportunity to put my college degrees in Journalism and English to work spreading the word about how great Sarah is!!!

I am pleased to announce that I have some great guests lined up for tomorrow's show. First up is Eddie Burke, the #1 Alaska Talk Radio Host. (Eddie's show airs M-F from 5-7 PST on 700 KBYR. Listen online at www.kbyr.com.) The cool thing about this is that Eddie is going to be coming to be interviewed live during his show. This is great because his listeners and my listeners will get to hear the interview. Eddie is a great friend of mine, Sarah Palin and her awesome family. Second on the lineup is Jason Cline, who is running for the Alaska State Senate in Anchorage. Like me, Jason is a young Republican who is getting actively involved in the political process. I cannot wait to speak to him about his candidacy and being a young Republican. Finally, Tracey Porreca, a Team Sarah member and President of the Valley Republican Women's Club in Wasilla will join me. Tracey and I will discuss her club and the importance of women getting involved in the political process. Jason, Tracey and I will also talk about Sarah's Tea Party Convention speech and the whole Tea Party movement in general.

I hope you all will tune into the show tomorrow night (Thursday) at 5p.m. AK standard time, 6p.m. PST, 8p.m. CST and 9p.m. EST. Visit www.blogtalkradio.com/join-team-sarah to listen to the show. Wanna ask a guest a question? Call 1(347)215-6125. If you don't want to call in, but still want to participate, there will be a chat room available.

Thanks so much for listening, and I hope you enjoy the show!!!

Sarah Palin Nails Obama On His Latest Scandal: Drillgate

Another day an other scandal from the most corrupt president in American history. One of the things our president promised during his campaign, in his best Orwellian "newspeak," was transparency. Of course, like everything else Barack Obama uttered, this too was a lie.

Let’s look at some of the lies Obama has told, just about transparency alone: Obama promised health care negotiations would be broadcast on C-SPAN. Never happened. Instead, most of the negotiations were held behind locked, closed doors.

Obama promised that all legislation would be made available online for every American to read before it was signed into law. What we got in reality was such a strong push to bamboozle the public, and pass horrible legislation, that not only were the American people actively prevented from seeing legislation before it was passed, so were members of Congress!. We’ve had bills with thousands of pages of insanity, crafted in the dark of night, behind closed doors, that have been signed into law by the president, without being read in total by a single sitting member of the most corrupt Congress in history.

The president has promised bi-partisanship, and continues to give it lip service, but in reality the Republican party has been locked out of all negotiations on every issue.

In short this is the most secretive and corrupt government we have ever had.

This latest scandal regarding transparency involves one of Sarah Palin’s areas of strong expertise, energy. As everyone knows, America has more than enough natural resources to become energy independent, but the zealots and flat earthers are doing all they can to prevent this from happening.

This, of course, is insanity. At a time when we have massive unemployment, and rising energy costs, it is criminal for the nation to have it’s own energy resources placed off limits by an out of control, radical, tyrannical government. We send nearly one trillion dollars a year overseas, often to hostile regimes, in order to purchase the lifeblood of our economy, oil.

This is simply insane.

Sarah has found a new scandal concerning energy that must be highlighted. It seems now that the Obama administration is actively trying to hide the fact that most Americans are demanding we use our resources. In her latest Facebook post Sarah discusses this:


Many of us appreciated the President mentioning in his State of the Union address that "tough decisions" had to be made regarding offshore drilling. People have had doubts about his seriousness in regards to domestic energy policy because our Department of the Interior dragging its feet on Virginia’s offshore oil and gas leases. Still, we’ve held out hope that America’s voice will be heard on energy.

And now Vince Haley at Big Government reports this shocker:

In April of 2009, during a discussion about offshore exploration in San Francisco, Salazar said that President Obama directed him to "to make sure that we have an open and transparent government" and that "these are not decisions that are going to be made behind closed doors." Salazar went on to say that President Obama wanted to make sure that DOI was "maximizing the opportunity for the public to give us guidance on what it is that they want to do."

Yet, more than four months after the comment period ended, the Department of the Interior has failed to make any public announcement about the results, even though sources have told American Solutions for months the comments show a 2-1 advantage in support of offshore drilling.

It took American Solutions almost four months and the power of the Freedom of Information Act to finally uncover indirect confirmation that, out of over 530,000 comments submitted, pro-drilling comments outnumbered anti-drilling comments by a 2-1 margin.

In an email dated October 27, 2009, Liz Birnbaum, director of the Minerals Management Service, informs other Interior officials that a preliminary tabulation of the results of the comment period had not yet gone to Secretary Salazar, adding "[s]o the Secretary can honestly say in response to any questions that he’s [SIC] has not yet seen the analysis of the comments – staff is still working on it. I did, however, confirm to him the 2-1 split that these guys [at American Solutions] are emphasizing."

When a public employee is on record condoning purposeful deception of the American people, the taxpayer should no longer have to fund his or her job. Secretary Salazar should immediately fire Liz Birnbaum for purposefully deceiving him, and in turn, the American people. It’s not possible for the Secretary to honor pledges of openness, honestly, and transparency in government if his staff is going to deliberately undermine such pledges.

Public opinion polls already measure near 70% support for offshore drilling, so the results from a public comment period that reflect the same public sentiment should not be surprising. But after all this talk of wanting the public’s input, Secretary Salazar and his team must find it a real stumbling block to have to explain all their anti-energy development actions in light of the comment period results to which they previously attached such great importance.

As Haley notes in his article, it’s astonishing that the Obama administration is dragging its feet on offshore drilling at a time when we’re so desperate for economic recovery and jobs. It’s no surprise that an overwhelming majority of Americans support offshore drilling: it will provide millions of good jobs and billions in revenue, and it will make us more secure by reducing our dependence on foreign oil.

Mr. President, we appreciate you asking for our input. We’ve provided it, so thank you for accepting it. With no time to waste, it’s time to listen to the American people – finally – and drill, baby, drill!

- Sarah Palin

Another outrageous web of lies and deceit from the Obama administration.

This is some powerful information and I urge readers to take the time to go to every link that Sarah has supplied to learn even more.

Energy is the lifeblood of our nation’s economy. It effects every aspect of our lives. As the American Energy Alliance notes, offshore drilling would significantly add to our nation’s economic health. Some of the benefits include:

* $8 trillion in additional economic output (GDP)

* $2.2 trillion in total tax receipts;

* 1.2 million new, well-paying jobs annually across the country; and

* $70 billion in additional wages each year.

At a time we have massive unemployment and underemployment, and an unsustainable national debt, and budget deficit, it is simply criminal not to be exploring for energy in every crack and crevice where we know there is energy to be had.

Folks ask us from time to time why we support Sarah Palin so fervently, well there are many issues on which we feel Sarah is eminently more qualified to lead the nation than anyone else, but it is her expertise on energy issues, her understanding of the significance of energy independence that we respect the most.

Being free and independent is a basic American right, but as long as we must bow to other nations, nations that do not have America’s best interests at heart, we will never be truly free, or independent. We will never have true national security.

Sarah gets it.

It’s time we hold the most corrupt president and the most corrupt Congress in our nation’s history accountable. It’s time we demand they listen to us and do as we say. In short, it’s time to Drill baby, drill!

Gibbs, Please Write "Uh" on Your Hand & Then Cross it Out!

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Question: Do we have a White House administration, or do we have a kindergarten class? Robert Gibbs, the president's press secretary, found it necessary to mock Sarah Palin, a private citizen? This is so pathetic that even people who support the Obama administation have stated that such behavior is unacceptable and not becoming of the president's staff. Major Garrett summed it up when he said the Obama White House continues to be obsessed with Governor Palin. I am absolutely appalled by Robert Gibbs' writing his "grocery list" on his hand.

The sad thing for them is they've missed something they need to catch. Governor Palin jotted down a few words--something no one who has ever had to speak in front of a crowd should find strange. President Obama, on the other hand (excuse the pun), relied on a teleprompter for a word-for-word script of a speech to a group of elementary school children. Governor Palin made note of some points she wanted to be sure to highlight. President Obama once repeated what he already said at the beginning of a speech when he lost his way with his teleprompter--and it took him some time to realize he was restating his opening acknowledgements.

“In addition to John – sorry, the – I just noticed I jumped the gun here,” Obama said. He then paused for a couple of minutes, looking at the telemprompter. “Go ahead. Move it up. I had already introduced all you guys.”

Does the Obama administration really want to get into this kind of battle with Governor Palin? Let me give them a piece of advice from a famous Rocky IV line: "You can't win!"

By the way, instead of making fun of the fact that Governor Palin wrote the word "budget" on her hand and then crossed it out, Robert Gibbs should have written "uh" on his hand and then crossed that out, reminding himself not to say it! He racked up the "uhs" even while reading his palm! Even with notes on his hand, he is as painful to listen to as President Obama is without his teleprompter.

If I were the president or his staff, I would stay away from trying to mock Palin. It only makes them look like they sit around watching tape of her, like coaches studying the plays of a rival coach. And frankly, mocking a private citizen really is beneath the highest office in the land.

Here is the pathetic display:
