Palin: On the List of “Mama Grizzlies”: Cecile Bledsoe for AR

Governor Palin endorsed Cecile Bledsoe, who is running in Arkansas' Third Congressional District, via a brief Facebook Note posted today, June 3, 2010. Ms. Bledsoe is a Reagan Conservative.
Just had a great talk with Cecile Bledsoe (and talk about “boots on the ground” in her grassroots campaign, she answered her own campaign phone when I called). She’s an inspiring individual whom I’m happy to support.

Cecile is another Commonsense Conservative “mama grizzly” running for Congress this year. Her mission to protect our great country’s freedom is so commendable. Cecile is a pro-family, pro-2nd Amendment, fiscal conservative who will work hard for the people in Arkansas’ 3rd Congressional District.

Please join me in supporting another member of the “pink elephant stampede” of Commonsense Constitutional Conservative women who will take this country back to our roots of limited government and fiscal responsibility. Please vote for Cecile on Tuesday, June 8th.

You can visit Cecile’s website here, and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

CBS' Scott Conroy Interviews Me & Other Palin Supporters

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

Scott Conroy, journalist for CBS and co-author of Sarah from Alaska, interviewed me and several Palin supporters and published his story today on CBSNews.com. His story relied mainly on interviews conducted with members of 1) Hillbuzz, the ardent Hillary Clinton and now Palin supporters and 2) Conservatives4Palin, for which I also write.

Given the fact that it's CBS, one should take note of how fair the overall piece is. It details the Governor's appeal to a diverse population of Americans and captures the ability she possesses to inspire them to action.

From the C4P family, he interviewed Nicole Coulter, Sapwolf, site co-founder Rebecca Mansour, who now works for Governor Palin, and yours truly.

The article is quite long, so I will give you an overview. I encourage you to click here to read Conroy's full piece.

Most importantly, there may be no other politician who retains the level of devotion that Palin enjoys among millions of Americans. They may be in the minority, but they are certainly not lacking in zeal.

"We would literally walk across hot broken glass for this woman," says Nicole Coulter (at left), a frequent contributor to the most prominent pro-Palin web site, Conservatives4Palin.com, which serves as an up-to-the-second source of news and analysis of all things Palin. "She represents something very powerful. It's deeper than politics. It's much, much deeper than politics. It's cultural. It's just this zeitgeist of raw emotion, kind of what our country is all about."

Of course, other national politicians attract passionate support, but with Palin's biggest fans, the devotion to the former Alaska governor resides on a deeply personal level that seems unique in American life.

"She's our family, and you protect your family; it's like the mafia," Coulter says. "She's just one of us, and when they insult her, they're insulting millions of us."


Thirty-nine-year-old seventh grade English teacher Adrienne Ross (at left) started her pro-Palin web site, MotivationTruth, soon after Election Day in 2008. In July of 2009, Ross left her home in Hudson, New York, for a month-long trip to Alaska. It was a Palin pilgrimage of sorts that doubled as a sightseeing trip.

"I was really drawn to go," says Ross, who is also a member of the Federal Election Commission-registered 2012 Draft Sarah Committee. "This might seem kind of strange, but I just felt to go. I felt like I was supposed to go."

Ross marched in the Fourth of July parade in Wasilla with Palin's parents and daughter Piper and was there at the picnic in Fairbanks when Palin handed over the state's reigns of power to incoming Gov. Sean Parnell.


"She is a big part of my life," Ross says. "I spend a lot of my time on Palin-centered things."

Ross and other prominent members of what might best be described as the "Sarah Palin community" reject the notion that they are blind followers in a political cult of personality. They are clearly sensitive to being painted with a label that they instead attribute to President Obama's biggest fans.

"I'm sure she's had some impact on it, but I wouldn't go as far to say she's changed my life, and I'm suddenly hearing music and the light from above is shining on me," says Josh Painter, who manages a Palin blog roll and edits Texas4Palin from his hometown of Bryan, Texas. "That's Barack Obama territory-he's 'The One.' Sarah Palin is just a woman we relate to."

Of all the pro-Palin blogs, Conservatives4Palin consistently has the biggest impact and reach. Its influence is evident in that it is the only online destination specifically devoted to supporting a potential 2012 candidate to make a recent list of the 100 most popular conservative web sites.

Most of Conservatives4Palin's contributors are not shy about their desire to see Palin run for president in 2012.

Palin herself long ago took notice of the site, giving it one of her patented shout-outs in her best selling book. She even scooped up two of its founding contributors last year and hired them to paid positions on her political staff.

"She's always said the best ideas don't come out of Washington, DC, and so there's no reason why she wouldn't follow that belief in choosing her staff," says Rebecca Mansour, one of the former Conservatives4Palin bloggers turned current Palin staffer.


Thomas Chanteloup, a 45-year-old consultant for a software company consultant who blogs under the moniker "Sapwolf" on Conservatives4Palin, vows that he will quit his job to take up temporary residence in Iowa next year on Palin's behalf.

"When she's criticized, it's like that person is showing unfair criticism or vitriol against my mother or daughter," says Chanteloup, who says he has seen Palin speak in person about a dozen times and has shook her hand on about six occasions. "I take it personally."

It certainly is true that Governor Palin's army is far-reaching, unapologetic, and relentless. With innumerable lies and attacks on her and the Palin family, her "loyal online defenders," as Scott Conroy coins us, are committed to being voices of truth and pillars of support upon which she can lean. And should she take the plunge into running for the presidency in 2012, she will certainly not be lacking people who will go to proverbial hell and back on her behalf.

IDF Videos Prove Palin Right on "Peace" Flotilla

Close-Up Footage of Mavi Marmara Passengers Attacking IDF Soldiers

Mavi Marmara Passengers Attack IDF Before Soldiers Board Ship

Weapons Found on the Flotilla Ship Mavi Marmara Used by Activists Against IDF Soldiers

On June 1, US for Palin ran Gov. Palin's Facebook Note about this Flotilla with a brief analysis. These videos - special thanks to Henry's Mom of Team Sarah and Smart Girl Politics for providing the lead - prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that these were no "peace activists" but rather low-grade weapons smugglers supporting Hamas terrorists.

The original Note and analysis is re-printed below.

Gov Palin's second Facebook Note of June 1, 2010 addressed purposeful distortion of the Israel Flotilla story by the mainstream media, specifically those outlets with leftist and/or anti-Israel leanings. Gov. Palin preceded her Note with a Tweet, urging her followers to read columns written by Charles Krauthammer, David Horowitz and others regarding the flotilla incident. US for Palin author Gary P. Jackson detailed how terrorist Bill Ayers and Obama's top campaign bundler Jodie Evans are activists involved with the flotilla group.

The Real Story about the Flotilla

The second paragraph of Gov. Palin's Note synopsizes the flotilla incident nicely.
As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective. This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting. The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not “peace activists.” The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are.
How Humanitarian Aid to Gaza Really Works

In paragraph three, Gov. Palin goes on to delineate precisely how humanitarian aid to Gaza works.
Israel delivers thousands of tons of humanitarian supplies every week to Gaza. These ships could have offloaded their cargoes at a nearby Israeli port if they really wanted to help the people of Gaza. Instead, they chose to incite confrontation and violence. Israel has a right to prevent arms shipments to Gaza that will be used to target innocent Israelis, so they were legitimately checking the cargo on the flotilla. Turkey has chosen to condemn Israel but we should be asking some serious questions about Turkey’s role in this whole affair. Why is a fellow member of NATO sponsoring such a dangerous publicity stunt? As one expert points out: “Three ships of that six-ship pro-terror convoy flew Turkish flags and were crowded with Turkish citizens. The Ankara government – led by Islamists these days – sponsored the ‘aid’ operation in a move to position itself as the new champion of the Palestinians. And Turkish decision-makers knew Israel would have to react – and were waiting to exploit the inevitable clash. The provocation was as cynical as it was carefully orchestrated.”
In her closing paragraph, Gov. Palin exhorts the Obama administration to stand by Israel.
We can only hope the Obama Administration does not join the anti-Israel chorus in the aftermath of this staged confrontation. Please, Mr. President, we need to let Israelis know we stand with them in their fight against terrorists and those who arm and support them. America and her ally, Israel, stand by waiting for your response.

- Sarah Palin

Anyone who continues to harbor doubts about Gov. Palin's knowledge of foreign affairs can lay them to rest. Gov. Palin has clearly done her homework on this issue. Unfortunately, Obama's handling of foreign affairs has been less than stellar, to put it kindly. I share in Gov. Palin's hope that he'll stand by Israel, but I honestly would be very surprised if he does, for Obama has demonstrated numerous times that his loyalty lies elsewhere.

Governor Sarah Palin's Foreword to the 2010 US Tort Liability Index

Conservatives 4 Palin note that Governor Sarah Palin has penned the foreword for the 2010 Report of the U.S. Tort Liability Index. Where does your state rank?

My home state of Alaska offers incredible beauty, amazing wildlife, abundant natural resources, friendly people, and no individual income tax. Alaska also has the best tort climate in the United States according to the U.S. Tort Liability Index: 2010 Report from the Pacific Research Institute (PRI).

In this top-notch report, PRI scholars analyze the costs and risks of each state’s tort system and conclude that Alaska is best overall. The report, now in its third edition, has been influential because the rankings are based on hard data, not opinions or speculation. The data don’t lie and Alaska is number one for good reasons.

Alaska has the second-lowest monetary tort payouts of any state, controlling for the size of each state’s economy. Our tort costs are particularly low for businesses—another reason for entrepreneurs to locate here. We also have some of the lowest medical liability costs in the country. We appreciate doctors in Alaska and welcome them with open arms, not abusive lawsuits.

Alaska also boasts the lowest relative tort litigation risks of any state. The state may abound in moose but it doesn’t have any “judicial hellholes” skewed to personal injury lawyers. The state also doesn’t have huge outlier jury awards. Its tort caseload is third-lowest in the country and it’s not flooded with lawyers. We practice the rule of law, not the rule of lawyers as in other states.

Alaska’s great tort climate is good for business and for all my fellow Alaskans. As the U.S. Tort Liability Index demonstrates, states with sound civil-justice systems and fair tort rules enjoy lower insurance premiums, increased employment and output, and higher individual incomes. A sound civil-justice system also expands the tax base, yields greater innovation, and lowers health care costs while improving access to health care.

Given these sweeping benefits, all states would do well to follow Alaska’s example and enact legal reforms that eliminate lawsuit abuse. The state motto, after all, is “North to the Future.”

Patrick's World Endorsements

Drum roll, please.

Okay, we all know some of these are the same candidates that Sarah Palin has endorsed or are allies of hers. So there's nothing new here in that regard. However, it is this blogger's hope that I can raise some awareness among those who might be checking out this blog site who otherwise may never read a word I write. Hopefully readers in the states where these candidates are running will understand why it is important that they elect these people.

Sean Parnell - Alaska Governor. As a team player, Parnell has carried through with the Palin agenda since taking over the reigns since she resigned. He continues to be a strong advocate of the AGIA natural gas pipeline as well as a staunch resistor of federal intrusion into the sovereign affairs of the state. Palin left the state in good hands when she handed the helm over to him. Alaskans should reward his efforts with a full four year term in November.

Eddie Burke - Lt. Governor of Alaska. Eddie Burke has been a strong supporter of conservative values and good government in Alaska. As the voice of the afternoon on KBYR radio, Eddie championed causes and supported people who stood against the abuses of government and those who would interfere with resource development and gun rights. Eddie stood by Sarah Palin when the "arrows and bullets" were flying. Alaskans should want someone who is willing to stick his neck out on the line to defend the hometown heroine who put Alaska back on the map with her run for vice president.

Eddie is running against Jay Ramras. As great a candidate as Eddie is - and the primary reason for voting for someone is because of what they stand for and what they can deliver for the state - there is another reason to vote for Eddie. For you "lesser of two evils" voters out there, read this and tell me whether you think Ramras still deserves to be the front runner. Alaska doesn't need a Palin hating RINO waiting in the wings while a pro Palin conservative like Parnell runs the state effectively and efficiently. Until the state's ethics laws are changed, you cannot take the chance that the crazed loony left may not want to "do it again" to Parnell just so they can stick it to Palin one more time. There is no longer a place for Palin Derangement Syndrome in Alaska politics. Ramras must go.

Joe Miller - Alaska Senate. In her usual stance against business as usual, Sarah Palin has endorsed a commonsense conservative to run against Lisa Murkowski in the primary. Miller's commitment to limited government and a strong national defense will serve the state well. Also, given the fact that he is not entrenched with the Washington elite nor has he "drank the Potomoc water," Miller will defend the state's sovereignty by not only opposing legislation that is not in its best interests, but also by not taking earmarks which have long been the sleight of hand used by Alaskan legislators on both sides of the aisle in the past to convince voters they were bringing home the bacon when in reality they were just playing ball with the fat cats in Washington and enslaving the state to federal programs and strings.

There is also sort of another reason to vote for Joe Miller. Lisa Murkowski completely blew it when she criticized Sarah Palin for resigning the governorship. By not standing up for a fellow Republican at a time when the loony left was running roughshod over the state, Murkowski demonstrated that she was an elitist insider who could pose as a conservative but not really act like one. Regardless of her personal feelings or resentments about Palin's defeating her father for governor two and a half years ago, Murkowski could have been a pro and just avoided becoming a target of the growing pro-Palin movement. She also could have taken a stand on behalf of conservatism and attacked the left wing ethics violation filers with a little more zest than she did in criticizing Palin.

Nikki Haley - South Carolina Governor. Nikki Haley is our next political crush. And it's not just because she is attractive. She is an outsider who is looking to shake up the good ole boy network and clean up the system. Party insiders in both parties fear her because she can do what Palin did in Alaska - get the corruption out and get the will of the people back in. She is serious. She is gutsy. She looked right in that camera and said with firm resolve that she has been faithful to her husband. She effectively took on and defeated the smear campaign that was ramped up against her. Those who are part of the corruption fear the most from someone like Haley and they will do anything to stop her. That tells you right there why she should be elected.

When Mark Sanford broke my political heart, did I ever think I'd find ideological love again in South Carolina? You betcha.

Michele Bachmann - Minnesota Congress. Speaking of political crushes, Bachmann surged as a conservative leader as the Tea Party movement grew and the GOP was digging in to battle the big government policies of the Obama administration. She is the ideological equivalent of a Jim Demint, but because she is a woman it seems the left likes to pick on her a lot more. That's good. Because that means she's effective and that means she's hitting a nerve. Bachmann stands up for what she believes in. If she ruffles a few feathers, so be it. Nancy Pelosi has put a target on Bachmann's back and it's up to the good people of Minnesota to stand up for Michele and not let Pelosi determine the outcome of the election in the 6th congressional district.

Carly Fiorina - California Senate. Compelling arguments can be made as to why Chuck Devore should be the candidate. However, like J.D. Hayworth, Devore is the right guy at the wrong time. Carly Fiorina has the conservative credentials needed to be an outstanding Senator and has a strong network of supporters in both the business and political communities to be an effective leader. This is California where someone like Fiorina has to walk that "fence." As such, she has been unfairly branded as a RINO by those who don't want her to get the nomination. The fact of the matter is she can win; Devore can't. There may come a day when the electorate of California may see the economic benefits of conservativism and give Devore the reward he deserves, but the fact that Tom McClintock is not the current governor tells me that California just quite isn't there yet.

After seeing how Chris Christie is performing in New Jersey, one shouldn't be as concerned about how a "mainstream" Republican can rise above it after the election in more liberal states. Carly is a team player who knows how to play ball in California's political climate yet who can navigate the system to the benefit of conservatism and the people of her state. She may not totally pass the litmus test in some far right circles, but for the rest of us, this is a really good deal especially given California standards. And of course, Boxer has to be defeated. So for you voters of the "lesser of two evils," please remember that Carly is not running so she can demand that someone call her "Senator." She's running so that she can help her state.

We conservatives are building our leadership team for 2012 by electing the right candidates in 2010. Sarah Palin is building that leadership team by endorsing candidates like these. When the time comes to take the reigns of power in 2012, the government we need will be more than half built by then. By getting these strong commonsense conservatives in place, Palin is in fact affecting change without a title. Palin's stamp on and influence in how this country will be run after 2010 will be falling into place. It's pure genius.

Sarah Palin Tells Radical Environmentalists: "You Are Damaging The Planet With Your Efforts To Lock Up Safer Drilling Areas"

No one credible disputes Sarah Palin’s expertise on energy. This woman knows what she is talking about here. The radical left has a diabolical scheme, but it has little to do with a clean environment, and a lot to do with destroying America, and lining it’s pockets in the process.

Sarah speaks:

Extreme Enviros: Drill, Baby, Drill in ANWR – Now Do You Get It?

This is a message to extreme "environmentalists" who hypocritically protest domestic energy production offshore and onshore. There is nothing "clean and green" about your efforts. Look, here’s the deal: when you lock up our land, you outsource jobs and opportunity away from America and into foreign countries that are making us beholden to them. Some of these countries don’t like America. Some of these countries don’t care for planet earth like we do – as evidenced by our stricter environmental standards.

With your nonsensical efforts to lock up safer drilling areas, all you’re doing is outsourcing energy development, which makes us more controlled by foreign countries, less safe, and less prosperous on a dirtier planet. Your hypocrisy is showing. You’re not preventing environmental hazards; you’re outsourcing them and making drilling more dangerous.

Extreme deep water drilling is not the preferred choice to meet our country’s energy needs, but your protests and lawsuits and lies about onshore and shallow water drilling have locked up safer areas. It’s catching up with you. The tragic, unprecedented deep water Gulf oil spill proves it.

We need permission to drill in safer areas, including the uninhabited arctic land of ANWR. It takes just a tiny footprint – equivalent to the size of LA’s airport – to tap America’s rich and plentiful oil and gas up north. ANWR’s drilling footprint is like a postage stamp on a football field.

But it’s not just ANWR; it’s our Petroleum Reserve, too. As Governor Sean Parnell noted today in the Wall Street Journal:

"Federal agencies are also now blocking oil development in the National Petroleum Reserve—Alaska.

Although familiar with ANWR, most Americans are less likely to know about NPR-A and how vital it is to our energy security. Given recent developments, it’s time to elevate the position this area holds in our national discourse.

NPR-A, a 23 million acre stretch of Alaska’s North Slope, was set aside by President Warren Harding in 1923 for the specific purpose of supplying our country and military with oil and gas. Since 1976 it has been administered by the Department of the Interior, and since 1980 it has been theoretically open for development. The most recent estimates indicate that it holds 12 billion barrels of oil and 73 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

In addition to containing enormous hydrocarbons, NPR-A is very close to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, which means that there would be relatively little additional infrastructure needed to bring this new oil to our domestic market.

But even here, progress has been stalled."

Radical environmentalists: you are damaging the planet with your efforts to lock up safer drilling areas. There’s nothing clean and green about your misguided, nonsensical radicalism, and Americans are on to you as we question your true motives.

- Sarah Palin

There is more to Governor Parnell’s op-ed:

For more than five years, the state of Alaska has worked closely with major energy companies, local communities and Alaska Native corporations and tribes on a balanced development plan. To back this project, these entities have formed a rare coalition and made significant compromises, often at the behest of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to clear regulatory hurdles for development on a site in NPR-A known as CD-5.

But this February the Corps reversed course and denied the issuance of a critical permit for CD-5. Specifically, the Corps denied ConocoPhillips's request to build a bridge over a river to accommodate a pipeline and vehicles that can access the company's existing production facilities at the nearby Alpine field. The Corps decreed that the bridge shouldn't be built and that the pipeline should proceed under water, a course of action that would significantly undermine the economics of the project while posing a greater risk to the environment.

Alaska stands ready to help move the nation closer to energy independence, and it's a shame that the federal government is standing in the way. The Corps's own regulations emphasize that state and local governments have primary responsibility for land-use decisions and that their views should be given due consideration. But not only has the Corps rejected a critical permit, it did so without consideration of our concerns—on the overly technical grounds that the state's comments were not made under my signature and that my oral comments to Corps officials were not in writing.

After years of cooperatively trying to move this critical NPR-A project forward, such a backhanded dismissal of a state's position is troubling enough. But what we really fear is that this is part of a much broader agenda at play (directed by the antidevelopment Environmental Protection Agency) to shut down increased domestic oil and gas production even in places like the NPR-A. As Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski stated in a recent address to our legislature, "For heaven's sakes, if we can't drill in the National Petroleum Reserve—an area specifically designated by Congress for oil and gas production—where can we drill?"

The state of Alaska is seeking to join an administrative appeal of this misguided federal decision. If we are not satisfied with the outcome of this proceeding, we will pursue other means, including suing the federal government to ensure that it abides by its own regulations and does not make arbitrary and capricious decisions at the expense of state sovereignty and wise energy policy.

America, particularly in Alaska, has vast reserves of onshore and offshore oil and gas. The crisis in the Gulf should not be used to implement a misguided strategy that shuts down the opportunities to develop these resources and that further endangers our nation's long-term energy security.

I for one am glad to see Sarah come out swinging here. The radical Marxist-progressives hijacked the so-called "green movement" decades ago, and are using it as nothing more than a vehicle to impose a communist style government both in America, and world wide. These people are evil, nothing more and nothing less.

There are several masters being served here by the Obama regime, and it’s disciples. First, there is the money, lots of money. The Obama regime, using the tenets of radical environmentalism, .which is based on a hoax, (global warming) to set up a cap and trade system that will see Obama, Al Gore, and many others rake in tens of trillions of dollars from people who are forced to purchase "carbon credits" through the Chicago Climate Exchange, which was created by Obama, and has among others, Al Gore, and elements of Goldman Sachs as partners. You can read more on The Greatest Swindle In Human History here and here.

One thing we must also never forget, while Obama and his people are doing everything they can to shut down all energy production in America, last year, Barack Obama loaned Brazil $15 billion in order to drill off it’s own coast. How does that square with the Obama regime’s cries for a "cleaner planet"? Anyone really think Brazil would be more diligent than America on environmental safety?

The real story here is the fact that three days before Obama gave Brazil the $15 billion tax payer dollars, his real boss, former Nazi sympathizer George Soros, purchased controlling interest in Petrobas, the Brazilian oil giant that will be using this gift of our money. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out who stands to make an obscene amount of money if America is no longer producing oil.

Soros is one of the most evil men on the planet, and owns the Marxist-democrat party lock, stock and barrel. He funds hundreds of Marxist-democrat party organizations. It stands to reason they will help him add even more wealth to his bank account, since his groups are responsible for keeping the most corrupt President and the most corrupt political party in our nation’s history afloat.

David Horowitz’s Discover The Networks has a profile on Soros here.

So far, all we are seeing is massive corruption, and a cap and tax scheme that is so evil that Bernie Madoff would cry foul. All of this manipulation by the Obama regime, and the pushing of a proven hoax (global warming) is nothing more than a high end, Chicago Gangland Shakedown, on a global scale.

For their part, the radical Marxists will get to witness the complete and total destruction of America, as well as the greatest redistribution of wealth in history.

The real losers in all of this, are the poor misguided fools who actually care about the planet, and want to see it cared for responsibly. Absolutely nothing in Obama’s "green agenda" has to do with making the planet cleaner. The only green Obama and his fellow travelers care about is the kind of green that has dead presidents on the front.

Unfortunately, the people who may actually care about the planet, have been indoctrinated in radical environmentalism and Marxist ideology for a generation. They have been taught to be closed minded and to have complete hatred for anything and everything that doesn’t fit the narrative. This is quite tragic, because there are people, who aren’t radical Marxists, that have the knowledge and skill to not only satisfy America’s need for energy, clean, inexpensive energy, that fuels our entire economy, but have a genuine love for our planet, and will go out of their way to do it right. They just aren’t devout followers of Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.

Sarah Palin is one of those people. She knows the oil and gas business as well as anyone out there. She worked to hold big oil accountable, and reform the system in Alaska. Sarah has first hand knowledge of what a disaster like the Gulf oil spill will do. As Governor, Sarah created an agency that was responsible for holding Big Oil responsible, and coming down hard when they weren’t. More importantly, she kept an eye on this commission, to make sure they did their job. It’s what a good CEO does.

It’s ridiculous and quite dangerous for us to be drilling for oil so far off shore. Drilling in mile deep water isn’t just asking for trouble, it’s begging for it. If we were in shallower water, closer to land, this problem could have been more easily gotten under control, but the extreme depths radical environmentalists, and greedy, corrupt politicians have forced upon America, are the culprit here.

Radical environmentalists loose heir mind when the talks turn to ANWR. Their media partners always aid them by running stories showing majestic eagles flying, polar bears looking all cuddly, and lush, green land. Now that may indeed represent some part of ANWR, but not where the oil is. Not where people want to drill.

ANWR is roughly the size of the state of South Carolina. As Sarah points out, the spot where the oil is, is about the size of the Los Angeles International Airport. If you're a Texan, think D-FW. International Airport. It truly is like comparing the size of a postage stamp, to the size of a football field.

Also, the spot where the oil and natural gas are, is not all that nice. In the winter, it’s frozen tundra, that is barely inhabitable, and in the summer the most endearing features are the black flies and mosquitoes the size of a small bird! If you look on the map, there are already energy producing fields very close to this area.

I remember when I was younger, the radical environmentalists lost their minds when planning for the Trans-Alaska pipeline was underway. The outrageous claims of devastation and destruction were just as over the top as what we see today.

Oh the caribou!

My goodness this was going to destroy the caribou. Now mind you, most Alaskan’s rely heavily on caribou and other game for their very survival. As Sarah puts it, "I eat, therefore I hunt." This is very much the way of life in Alaska. Alaskan’s aren’t going to destroy their food supply.

Long story short, as always, the environmental moonbats were wrong. It seems that the oil that comes through the pipeline is warm, even when the outside temps are well below zero. Caribou love the warmth. It also makes the caribou, and other game rather romantic. Instead of making the caribou extinct, these buggers multiplied like rabbits! So much for the wisdom of radical environmentalism.

Several things need to happen here. One, we need competent leadership, from people that actually have an understanding of how stuff works. We need someone who is honest, and incorruptible. That of course, would be Sarah Palin, and those like her.

We also must start investigating the massive lies and corruption that surround the so-called "green movement" as well as all of those involved with the Obama regime. Someone must have the guts to go after Obama, and all of the members of Crime, Inc. We also need someone with the guts to go after George Soros, and take this guy down. He is pure evil, and funds pure evil worldwide.

The Marxist-democrats like Obama love to shout from the rooftops how evil capitalism is, and how we need "social and economic justice" to "make things right", but under the shadow of darkness, these evil men work and scheme to find the best way to steal America, and the world, blind, making themselves rich beyond all imagination. In the end, all Obama and his fellow travelers really are, are just common criminals.

It’s the Chicago way.
