Gov Palin: Votes and Contested Primaries = Armaments

Video retrieved from PalinTV.

Violence Not the Answer

Glenn Beck began the segment expressing his concern about economies worldwide teetering on collapse, and a group in Alaska promoting armed resistance. He indicated that faith, hope and charity are the answer, not violence and implored the group to re-consider their intentions. While introducing Gov. Palin, he described Alaska as the last place in our country where the pioneering spirit of 150 years ago still burns strong, a spirit which says, "get out of my way, but let me help you neighbor." He asked Gov. Palin what she thought of this group. She said, "Violence is not the answer. There's understandable there's legitimate frustration with our government today, and I think those who assembled at that meeting in Kenai what they were saying was that there is some desperation in society and citizens are wanting to know what they can do to have their voices be heard." Gov. Palin reiterated that violence is not the answer.

State Legislatures Exercising Tenth Amendment Rights

Glenn Beck asked Gov. Palin what she thought of legislation being passed in states like Idaho not accepting ObamaCare. "I think that Gov. Otter is spot on in using this as a tool to remind our federal government that there are limited enumerated powers held within the federal government. Butch Otter respects the Tenth Amendment to our US Constitution. Alaska and so many other states are going to follow suit too. And let's be thankful for that. Those governors who want to lead their citizens to have their voice be heard with this ObamaCare scheme that's coming down the pike, that's abhorrent; it's unacceptable and legal tools must be used," she said.

Glenn Beck said "it's not just health care, it's also education. You're not going to be able to get any private dollars for education. That is just so much control." He went on to discuss how states, such as New York might be giving IOU's rather than tax refunds. "That's not going to sit well with people. We're sitting here on a powder keg," Beck said. Gov. Palin responded, "try to reverse there Glenn, and tell the IRS IOU later on the check's in the mail, and see how well that works."

Take up Arms by Voting and Supporting Contested Primaries

"This powder keg that you're talking about, that's exactly what the people down there in Kenai were kind of manifesting too in their frustration," she said. Gov. Palin referenced President Eisenhower on leadership, saying, "at this time in American history, it's the citizens who are going to have to lead our elected officials in government. Leadership is not hitting somebody over the head. It's not taking up arms at this point. That's not leadership, that's assault."

"We need to make sure that the tool that we use in 'taking up arms if you will' is our vote. It's supporting contested primaries and healthy debate in our elections that are upcoming. No elected official should feel they are entitled to their seat," Gov. Palin said. "Here in Alaska, I would like to see more contested primaries going into these midterm elections across our nation. We will see more. That needs to be ... our arms - our votes and our support for contested primaries," Gov. Palin said.

Our Voice from the Bottom Up

Glenn Beck asked Gov. Palin what she sees as the future for the TEA Party. She responded, "The TEA Parties will grow. These movements of the people, this groundswell of support for our Constitution and these limited enumerated powers of our federal government; these movements are going to grow. People cannot be discouraged and they cannot buy into what the mainstream media would want us to believe and that is 'we need to sit down and shut up' and that government will take care of us....More and more Americans are realizing, 'oh this is that voice in the TEA Party, this that voice coming from the bottom up telling our elected officials and appointed officials in government what we mean when we say 'NO!'"

"Constitutional limits to government power: that's what we want to see plugged in," Gov. Palin concluded.

Palin: Gvmt which Governs Least Governs Best

Video retrieved from PalinTV


In her interview with Sean Hannity Governor Palin addressed the alarming "new normal" that the rush to vote on health care is creating: a corrupt political process, disregard for the Constitution and more policy changes being executed this way now that the floodgate has been opened. "This is not health care reform. This is take-over," Gov. Palin said. She added that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D) is the "fall guy" for the procedural trick that is being considered, "deeming the Senate bill as passed by the House" without an actual vote, and "could not possibly have been thinking this up herself."

Gov Palin said that people have woken up and are seeing that they must hold politicians accountable and said that this "deem and pass" process is un-Constitutional, un-democratic, and un-American. "This is a scary place for America to be....everything around this ObamaCare goes against the will of the people...we have learned through American history that the government which governs least governs best, and that all political power is inherent in the people. Government originates from the will of the people and is implemented through the will of the people," she said.

"The process that Pelosi is pushing is unconstitutional. This is cut and dry, white and black," Gov. Palin said. Is the "Constitution not worth the paper it's written on?"

Hannity pointed out that Article I, Section 7 is very clear: "Congress is required to present the president with a bill that is identical in both houses." "That's not the case," he said. "There is supposed to be a yay or nay vote." Hannity and Gov. Palin's colleague Mark Levin has prepared a court challenge to ObamaCare if it is passed via the "Slaughter Rule." Gov. Palin predicted that the court challenge along with public wrath could defeat ObamaCare if it were to pass. She said "in our lifetime, this is the most un-democratic, most un-American step we will have seen our Congress take. It's appalling. It takes my breath away that they would think this is OK to do."

"We can't feign surprise....Obama said during the campaign that were days away from transforming America," Gov. Palin said.

"The independent American, the independent thinker realizes that we are going down a path that's not good for our country, this debt we are incurring, this take-over of one sixth of our economy," she said. So many independent Americans will be voting differently in 2010 than in 2008. Gov. Palin noted Congress' desperation to pass the bill no matter what so that the Obama administration can record a "win" for its agenda. "This does not bode well for those members of Congress who are up for re-election in November...they are sheep...going along to get along with Pelosi, Reid, and Obama," she said.

Hannity said he could understand this behavior from rigid ideologues like Obama, but questioned if there was not one Democrat with conscience who realizes that this is not constitutional. "Why would all these Democrats walk the plank? Is it because they want to be liked in Washington?" Hannity asked. "They are like a bunch of dead fish...only dead fish go with the flow....as a mayor, as a governor, I had to buck my party many times; I've had to go against with leaders of the party insisted I do."

"That independent, almost pioneering spirit courses through America's veins and has made us into the country that we are....what these party leaders are doing will catch up with them...that's what you're seeing with the TEA Party and other Americans rising up," she said. "They wanting from their leaders that independence and the moral courage to do what is right."

Hannity addressed Stupak and abortion funding, and the quote that abortions are being provided because children cost money. "Those who believe that the most promising and precious ingredient in this mixed up society is not a child? The most promising and precious ingredient is a child!" Gov. Palin said. "For that type of thinking to be involved now in the ObamaCare debate 'that well more babies being born - that would be a bad thing' is absolutely appalling. We have strayed in the past week...focusing on the process. The substance of the bill has not been discussed as much," she said.

"Americans do need to stay focused on what is in ObamaCare...there will be 150 new bureaucracies, commissions, and offices that will be in control of our health care.... Obama has suggested that he does not know what is in the bill. Pelosi said we have to pass it and then we will know what is in it. Some scary things going on right now."


The Slaughter Rule is absolutely un-Constitutional. ObamaCare will take-over one sixth of our economy and destroy lives. The methods being used to pass it will lead to the gutting of our Constitution and the passage of other equally nefarious legislation. Obama's seething hatred for our country is manifest. The mask is off. We need to keep the pressure on and ensure that this abomination does not pass and if it does to strike it down in the courts. We need to vote out all the bums who supported this. Obama is not presidential material. He is a complete, absolute, and utter disgrace to the office he holds, and we have 1,039 more days of him.

Our vigil is posted awaiting the moment that Gov Palin answers her summons to serve....

Johnston Helped Griffin Trespass Palin's Property

D-List Queen Extraordinaire Kathy Griffin trespassed upon the Palin's property earlier this month to leave an "invitation" to her "comedy" show, in which she hurled sexist and misogynist invective at Governor Palin, as reported in Kathy Griffin: PDS Fueled by Hate and Chutzpah. We reported that according to the Associated Press Levi Johnston introduced Griffin at her show.

Today, Patrick Gavin of Politico reports that "Griffin recently visited Alaska and knocked on Sarah Palin's door. (Palin wasn’t home.) Griffin had along with her Levi Johnston, who remained in his truck "because he's afraid Todd [Palin] would shoot him." (Gavin, 2010, ¶4).

Johnston conspired with, aided and abetted Griffin's trespassing. The father of a child he co-conceived with Bristol Palin, was at one time trusted and very nearly a member of the family. Yet, he made a conscious decision to drive a sworn enemy to the Palins' house where she was not welcome. Why would he fear being shot? Perhaps, because he was trespassing himself; he knew full well he was doing wrong; that he was some place he was not supposed to be. Ironically, Griffin said, "[t]here's a level of fearlessness that I like” (Gavin, 2010, ¶5).

While Johnston - who is well known the Palins - feared for his own hide, he wasn't afraid that this stranger on the Palins' property would be shot. If the "fearless" Johnston was a man, he would have left Griffin in the truck and dropped off the "invitation." Instead, he cowered in the truck, while the woman took care of business, though, it was her own nefarious business that was being tended to. This appears to be his modus operandi in life: leave the woman holding the bag, dump the responsibilities on her, while letting Rex Butler, Tank Jones, Playgirl, the Roll Corporation, and now Griffin use him as a pawn in their war on the Palins.

In our prior coverage, we wrote, "Griffin is reputed to be something of a cougar on the prowl. Could Levi Johnston be her latest quarry?" Today's coverage by Gavin appears to indicate he is. The 50-year-old Griffin said, "I only have eyes for Levi," who is 19 (Gavin, 2010, ¶5). Griffin and Johnston appear to be spending significant amounts of "quality time" together in their various pursuits. Her statement betrays at least the intent of extra-curricular activity, if not the existence of it.

Meanwhile, Tripp Johnston's mother is working, going to school, doing public relations for the Candies Foundation, and set to appear on the Secret Life of the American Teenager, addressing problems with teenage pregnancy - all while taking good and proper care of her son.
