Sarah Palin Lays Out Her Aggressive Agenda For National Security, Liberty, Freedom, And The American Way .... Video Included

By Gary P Jackson

Speaking at Freedom Fest in Norfolk, Virginia Sarah Palin laid out her very aggressive agenda for the nation. This is a powerful indictment of the Obama regime, and the corrupt "lamestream media" as well.

Fresh from her speech at California State University, at Stanislaus, where she spoke of American exceptionalism, and the need to get back to the basics in education, and raised more money for the university than any other speaker in history, Sarah came to Virginia ready to take on the big issues that we face.

With every passing speech, every new appearance, Sarah Palin looks more powerful, more in control, and more presidential. This is a compelling speech, where she implores the American people not to settle for second best. She tells us not to allow Barack Obama and his minions get away with saying America’s finest hours are behind us, and that we are just another nation among nations. Don’t let Obama and the rest of the Marxist-democrats tell you America is not the greatest force for good the world has ever known.

Sarah implores us not to just say "no," to the Obama agenda, but "Hell No!"

Here’s video of the speech:

Below is a partial transcript Sarah released today via her Facebook blog:

Peace Through Strength and American Pride vs. "Enemy-Centric" Policy

Earlier this week, I spoke at the Freedom Fest in Norfolk, Virginia; and, evidently, the media was asked to leave – not by me, that’s for sure. I want my message out, so despite reporters making up a story about "Palin people kicking us out" (uh, the "Palin people" entourage would consist of one person – my 15-year-old daughter, Willow – and I have no doubt she could take on any reporter, but I know for certain she didn’t "kick ‘em out" of the event). Anyway, here are some of the key issues I spoke about.


It takes a lot of resources to maintain the best fighting force in the world – especially at a time when we face financial uncertainty and a mountain of debt that threatens all of our futures.

We have a federal government that is spending trillions, and that has nationalized whole sections of our economy: the auto industry, the insurance industry, health care, student loans, the list goes on – all of it at enormous cost to the tax payer. The cost of Obamacare alone is likely to exceed $2.5 trillion dollars.

As a result of all these trillion dollar spending bills, America’s going bust in a hurry. By 2020 we may reach debt levels of $20 trillion – twice the debt that we have today! It reminds me of that joke I read the other day: "Please don’t tell Obama what comes after a trillion!"

Something has to be done urgently to stop the out of control Obama-Reid-Pelosi spending machine, and no government agency should be immune from budget scrutiny. We must make sure, however, that we do nothing to undermine the effectiveness of our military. If we lose wars, if we lose the ability to deter adversaries, if we lose the ability to provide security for ourselves and for our allies, we risk losing all that makes America great! That is a price we cannot afford to pay.

This may be obvious to you and me, but I am not sure the Obama Administration gets it. There isn’t a single progressive pet cause which they haven’t been willing to throw billions at. But when it comes to defense spending, all of a sudden they start preaching a message of "fiscal restraint." Our Defense Secretary recently stated the "gusher" of defense spending was over and that it was time for the Department of Defense to tighten its belt. There’s a gusher of spending alright, but it’s not on defense. Did you know the US actually only ranks 25th worldwide on defense spending as a percentage of GDP? We spend three times more on entitlements and debt services than we do on defense.

Now don’t get me wrong: there’s nothing wrong with preaching fiscal conservatism. I want the federal government to balance its budget right now! And not the Washington way – which is raising your taxes to pay for their irresponsible spending habits. I want it done the American way: by cutting spending, reducing the size of government, and letting people keep more of their hard-earned cash.

But the Obama administration doesn’t practice what it preaches. This is an administration that won’t produce a budget for fear that we discover how reckless they’ve been as fiscal managers. At the same time, it threatens to veto a defense bill because of an extra jet engine!

This administration may be willing to cut defense spending, but it’s increasing it everywhere else. I think we should do it the other way round: cut spending in other departments – apart from defense. We should not be cutting corners on our national security.


Secretary Gates recently spoke about the future of the US Navy. He said we have to "ask whether the nation can really afford a Navy that relies on $3 to $6 billion destroyers, $7 billion submarines, and $11 billion carriers." He went on to ask, "Do we really need... more strike groups for another 30 years when no other country has more than one?"

Well, my answer is pretty simple: Yes, we can and, yes, we do because we must. Our Navy has global responsibilities. It patrols sea lanes and safeguards the freedoms of our allies – and ourselves. The Navy right now only has 286 ships, and that number may decrease. That will limit our options, extend tours for Navy personnel, lessen our ability to secure our allies and deter our adversaries. The Obama administration seems strangely unconcerned about this prospect.


When George W. Bush came into office, he inherited a military that had been cut deeply, an al Qaeda that had been unchallenged, and an approach to terrorism that focused on bringing court cases rather than destroying those who sought to destroy us. We saw the result of some of that on 9/11.

When President Obama came into office, he inherited a military that was winning in Iraq. He inherited loyal allies and strong alliances. And thanks to the lamestream media pawing and purring over him, he had the benefit of unparalleled global popularity. What an advantage! So their basic foreign policy outlines should have been clear. Commit to the War on Terror. Commit to winning – not ending, but winning the war in Afghanistan. Commit to the fight against violent Islamic extremism wherever it finds sanctuary. Work with our allies. Be resolute with our adversaries. Promote liberty, not least because it enhances our security. Unfortunately, these basic principles seem to have been discarded by Washington.


His administration has banned the phrase "war on terror," preferring instead politically correct nonsense like "overseas contingency operations." His Homeland Security Secretary calls acts of terrorism "man-caused disasters." His reckless plan to close Guantanamo (because there’s no place to go after it’s closed) faces bipartisan opposition now.

The Attorney General just announced that a decision about where to try terrorists like 9/11 master mind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would not be announced until after the mid-term elections. Is there something he’s afraid to tell us?

The President’s new National Security Strategy does not even use the word "Islamic" when referring to violent extremism. Does he think the ideology of those who seek to kill Americans is irrelevant? How can we seek to defeat an enemy if we don’t acknowledge what motivates them and what their ultimate goals are? President Obama may think he is being politically correct by dropping the term, but it flies in the face of reality. As Senator Joe Lieberman noted, refusing to use the word Islamic when describing the nature of the threat we face is "Orwellian and counterproductive."


In Afghanistan, it is true that President Obama approved deploying additional forces to the conflict – most, but not all the troops requested by commanders on the ground. But it took months of indecision to get to that point, and it came at a very high price – a July 2011 date to begin withdrawal.

This date was arbitrary! It bears no relation to conditions on the ground. It sends all the wrong signals to our friends and to our enemies. We know our commanders on the ground are not comfortable with it.

As that great Navy war hero, Senator John McCain recently put it: "The decision to begin withdrawing our forces from Afghanistan arbitrarily in July 2011 seems to be having exactly the effect that many of us predicted it would: It is convincing the key actors inside and outside of Afghanistan that the United States is more interested in leaving than succeeding in this conflict."

Does the President really believe the Taliban and al Qaeda won’t be empowered by his naming of a starting date for withdrawal? They now believe they can beat him simply by outlasting us. What sort of effect does he think this will have on the morale of our troops – and of our allies?


It’s not the only area where the Obama administration has failed our allies. They escalated a minor zoning issue in Jerusalem into a major dispute with our most important ally in the Middle East, Israel. They treated the Israeli Prime Minister shabbily in Washington. When a Turkish sponsored flotilla threatened to violate a legal Israeli blockade of Hamas-run Gaza, the Obama Administration was silent. When Israeli commandos were assaulted as they sought to prevent unmonitored cargoes from being delivered to Hamas terrorists, the Obama Administration sent signals it might allow a UN investigation into the matter – an investigation that would be sure to condemn our ally Israel and bemoan the plight of Hamas. Loyal NATO allies in central Europe were undermined by the cancellation of a missile defense program with virtually no warning. At the same time, Russia and China are given preferential treatment, while remaining silent on their human rights violations.


Meanwhile, the Obama Administration reaches out to some of the world’s worst regimes. They shake hands with dictators like Hugo Chavez, send letters to the Iranian mullahs and envoys to North Korea, ease sanctions on Cuba and talk about doing the same with Burma. That’s when they’re not on one of their worldwide apology tours.

Do we get anything in return for all this bowing and apologizing? No, we don’t. Yes, Russia voted for a weak sanctions resolution on Iran, but it immediately stated it could sell advanced anti-aircraft missile to Iran anyway, and would not end its nuclear cooperation. In response to North Korea’s unprovoked sinking of a South Korean Navy ship, China warned us not to take part in military exercises with our ally.

And while President Obama lets America get pushed around by the likes of Russia and China, our allies are left to wonder about the value of an alliance with the U.S. They have to be wondering if it’s worth it.


It has led one prominent Czech official to call Obama’s foreign policy "enemy-centric." And this "enemy-centric" approach has real consequences. It not only baffles our allies, it worries them. When coupled with less defense spending, it signals to the world that maybe we can no longer be counted on, and that we have other priorities than being the world leader that keeps the peace and provides security in Europe, in Asia and throughout the world.

Together with this enemy-centric foreign policy, we see a lessening of the long, bipartisan tradition of speaking out for human rights and democracy. The Secretary of State said she would not raise human rights with China because "we pretty much know what they are going to say." Democracy promotion programs have been cut. Support for the brave Iranians protesting their government was not forthcoming because President Obama would rather try to cut a deal with their oppressors.

When the world’s dictators see the United States unconcerned with human rights and political freedom, they breathe a sigh of relief, because they know they have a free hand to repress their own people.

This goes against the very ideals on which our republic was founded. There is a long bipartisan tradition of speaking out in favor of freedom – from FDR to Ronald Reagan. America loses something very important when its President consigns human rights and freedom to the back burner of its international priorities.


We have a President, perhaps for the very first time since the founding of our republic, who doesn’t appear to believe that America is the greatest earthly force for good the world has ever known.

When asked whether he believed in American exceptionalism, President Obama answered, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." Amazing. Amazing.

I think this statement speaks volumes about his world view. He sees nothing unique in the American experience? Really? Our founding, and our founding mothers and fathers? Really? And our history over the past two and half centuries?

Really? He sees nothing unique in an America that fought and won two world wars and in victory sought not one inch of territory or one dollar of plunder? He sees nothing unique in an America that, though exhausted by conflict, still laid the foundation for security in Europe and Asia after World War II? He sees nothing unique in an America that prevailed against an evil ideology in the Cold War? Does he just see a country that has to be apologized for around the world, especially to dictators?

President Obama actually seems reluctant to even embrace American power. Earlier this year when he was asked about his faltering Middle East peace process, he said "whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower." Whether we like it or not?! Really? Mr. President, this may come as news to you, but most Americans actually do like it. And so do our allies. They know it was our military might that liberated countless millions from tyranny, slavery, and oppression over the last 234 years. Yes, we do like it. As a dominant superpower, the United States has won wars hot and cold; our military has advanced the cause of freedom and kept authoritarian powers in check.

It is in America’s and the world’s best interests for our country to remain the dominant military superpower, but under President Obama’s leadership that dominance may be slipping away. It’s the result of an agenda that reeks of complacency and defeatism.

(I went on from there to talk about our need to end the negative, defeatist attitudes of those in leadership. I spoke further on American exceptionalism, and Willow and I ended a great evening with some great patriots. Sorry the media chose to report anything other than what actually happened at the event.)

- Sarah Palin

I want to address the question of this blogger, who none of us has ever heard of, but indeed has a blog, that claims he was kicked out of Freedom Fest after a few minutes of blogging Sarah’s speech.

Now we find that rather a dubious claim on many levels. People live blog from pretty much every speech Sarah gives, especially events like this. People park on Twitter waiting anxiously for every quote, every tidbit of information about the event, hungry for all things Palin.

Another thing, this blogger claims he was invited by one of the event sponsors to cover this deal, and was credentialed. I’ve been to a lot of events, and credentialed media is rarely hassled. Past that, if the guy was there at the behest of a sponsor, how hard would it have been to drop a name or two? (It’s always worked for us!)

Some have suggested that maybe an outsider, posing as an event official, an "agent provocateur" may have wondered in to cause trouble, but that’s getting out there where the buses don’t run.

The thing that makes us really doubt this blogger’s story is the fact that video, clearly shot from someone in the audience, exists. If they were kicking out fully credentialed and somewhat "official" bloggers, how did the video posted by "Daily Press News" come into being?

Inquiring minds want to know.

You’ll read more about this in the coming days I’m sure, but as Stacy Drake wrote in her latest offering, this is all about stealing the headlines away from what Sarah actually has to say, the substance, and mis-directing you somewhere else.

There are a whole lot of people both Marxist-democrats, and establishment Republicans, who would just as soon you didn’t pay attention to Sarah Palin and her strong message. They just as soon you forget she is one of the few real leaders this nation has.

Sarah Palin is a real leader, a strong leader, and a proven reformer. This scares the hell out of both the corrupt Marxist-democrats, as well the corrupt establishment Republicans. In fact, she may scare the corrupt Republicans more, because they know what she did to the Alaskan Republicans and Governor Frank Murkowski’s "Corrupt Bastards Club."

Our best advice when it comes to Sarah Palin, is to pay attention to what this magnificent woman says, and ignore the spectacle that those who don’t have America’s best interest at heart, make of themselves, trying to get you to ignore her!

Oh Noes! Sarah Palin Is Human!

By Gary P Jackson

Yes, yes, I know when we see Sarah Palin we see a strong, powerful woman. We see a warrior. A woman who takes no prisoners and gives no quarter. We see an accomplished leader with an incredible record of reforming and streamlining government.

Knowing all if this, and much more, it’s sometimes easy to forget she’s only human. Yes Sarah, like the rest of us, is capable of making mistakes, especially when speaking off the cuff. Having done it for years, I can tell ya, it ain't as easy as it looks.

It seems that when Sarah visited California State University at Stanislaus last week, she miss-spoke while talking about her hero, and mine, Ronald Reagan. During her speech, while talking about Reagan, small town values, and trying to tie that together with the fact Reagan moved to California, and how that shaped him, she got ahead of herself. Sarah was talking about Eureka College, which of course is in Illinois, but it came out "Eureka, California" as you’ll see in the video below:

Now obviously, as a student of Ronald Reagan, Sarah knows he went to Eureka College in ILLINOIS. How do I know this for a fact? Well it’s easy, not that long ago Sarah was in Illinois, speaking at Five Points Washington.

Karen McDonald from Peoria’s Journal Star reported at the time:

Palin commented on the Land of Lincoln having a "most diverse political scene" and referenced the "Will it play in Peoria?" cliche.

"Nobody here is ordinary. ... Much of the eyes of America are on this part of our nation because this is a representation of good, hard-working, grounded, unpretentious, patriotic Americans," she said.

One of those people, Palin said, is former President Ronald Reagan, a Eureka College graduate, who believed in limited government in order to expand opportunity and prosperity. Reagan was a Midwestern boy who understood the importance of work ethic, not entitlement, she said.

"We need a dose of that Midwestern common sense now more than ever," Palin said.

John Morris, director of development for the Ronald W. Reagan Leadership Program and Ronald Reagan Museum at Eureka College, said remarks about the college by a potential Republican candidate for president in 2012 are "thrilling."

"Eureka College is a national living legacy to this story that in America you can come from anywhere and with the right values you can go on to help change the world. Eureka College is the living legacy to the story of Ronald Reagan," Morris said.

You can read the entire article here.

Now that should be that, end of story, but of course, it isn’t.

Evidently the left wing in this country is just as shocked as we are to find out that Sarah Palin is indeed human, and capable of miss-speaking. Now I get that, considering she has been kicking their tails from one end of this country to the other for the last year or more.

The woman has laid bare their Dear Leader for all to see. She’s exposed Obama for what he is: a corrupt, Chicago street thug, and nothing more.

So shocked are the Marxist-progressives to learn Sarah Palin, their  bête noire, is but a mere mortal, they can’t stop talking about her gaffe. It’s understandable.

Of course, it just might be a bit of misdirection on their part. You see for all of the insanity, brought on by the left before her incredible speech that night, in the end, Sarah Palin raised more money than any speaker in CSU Stanislaus history!

After the dust settled, and all bills were paid, the university netted $200,000. That’s big money in anyone’s book, and again, a record for the university.

Now this is Northern California. The university, which is located in Turlock, is less than 100 miles from San Francisco. I mean this is right in the belly of the communist beast! This is serious business.

How would the Marxists in San Francisco ever be able to explain how that moose huntin’ hockey mom from Wasilla, Alaska was such a hit in own their backyard?

Think about it. If Sarah Palin can raise more money than any speakier in history, in the shadow of the most Marxist-progressive city in the country, that means come 2012, Barack Obama wouldn’t have a prayer against her in the state, IF (more like when) she runs for President.

One can only imagine the cold sweats Marxists all over the country broke out in once they realized this.

Now this is before we even talk about the speech itself! A lot has been made about the "reporters" caught on tape after the speech, but again, that’s just mis-direction. The radicals will do absolutely anything to keep you from actually listening to Sarah Palin’s words.

This was a great speech. Different than some of her latest. She wasn’t there to rip Obama apart, she would do that the next night in Tyler, Texas and over the weekend in Virginia! No, this was a speech about American values, American exceptionalism, and the need to get back to the basics in education. Three more things that make the left break out in a cold sweat.

So .... it’s kinda understandable that the Marxists and their media partners would make a big deal out of all of this.They absolutely must take your mind off the fact that Sarah Palin kicks ass!

Of course, the Dear Leader, Captain Kick Ass, and his lovable side kick, Vice President Smart Ass would never screw up, ever .... or would they.

Here Obama says he’s been to 57 states, with one, possibly two, that he wasn’t allowed to see.

Here’s the most gifted speaker that ever breathed not only speaking rather incoherently, because he was working without his trusty TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States) by his side, but also claiming a child, suffering from an asthma attack, needs a breathalyzer for treatment. In all fairness, after stumbling, he gets it right, but this still makes for great TV!

And who could forget when this genius claimed that doctors were taking out children’s tonsils to make more money.

Even better, here he accuses doctors of allowing obese people to become diabetics, so at some point, they can make $30,000 .... $40,000 .... or possibly $50,000 by amputating their feet!

According to Cheryl Clark, at HealthLeaders Media:

"President Obama got his facts completely wrong," according to a statement from the ACS, whose 74,000 members make it the largest organization of surgeons in the world.

"In fact, Medicare pays a surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation," sais ACS, which is care that includes evaluation of the patient the day of the operation and follow-up care that is provided for 90 days after the operation.

Private insurers pay a variation of the same amount, said the group, adding that it is "deeply disturbed" over the President's "uninformed public comments."

Of course who could forget that Obama thinks people in Austria speak "Austrian" (about 1:33 in)

For the record, Austrians speak German!

Here’s another classic from the Harvard educated President. Obama thinks Europe is a country!

Now right about now, any left wingers reading this are going to shout: "Oh yeah! Well that crazy moose lady didn’t know Africa was a continent .... So there!"

On thing wrong with that, as Frank James noted in the Chicago Tribune, on November 13, 2008, a whole bunch of people, including Fox New’s "Campaign Carl" Cameron, owe Sarah Palin a HUGE apology. (Of course, as of this writing, June 29, 2010, she is still waiting for it)

You see the whole thing was a HOAX uncovered by, of all places, the New York Times!

It was among the juicier post-election recriminations: Fox News Channel quoted an unnamed McCain campaign figure as saying that Sarah Palin did not know that Africa was a continent.

Who would say such a thing? On Monday the answer popped up on a blog and popped out of the mouth of David Shuster, an MSNBC anchor. "Turns out it was Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser, who has come forward today to identify himself as the source of the leaks," Mr. Shuster said.

Trouble is, Martin Eisenstadt doesn't exist. His blog does, but it's a put-on. The think tank where he is a senior fellow -- the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy -- is just a Web site. The TV clips of him on YouTube are fakes.

And the claim of credit for the Africa anecdote is just the latest ruse by Eisenstadt, who turns out to be a very elaborate hoax that has been going on for months. MSNBC, which quickly corrected the mistake, has plenty of company in being taken in by an Eisenstadt hoax, including The New Republic and The Los Angeles Times.

BTW, "Martin Eisenstadt" was the source of a few more BS stories about Sarah, including the one about her greeting people in a bathrobe at her hotel. It’s sad enough the media fell for the Africa story, but as anyone with any amount of experience, or has ever seen a movie or TV show, would know, the Secret Service would never allow a protectee to open their own door, especially not in a hotel.

Now I promised you some Joe Biden, and God love the man, if we tried to show you all of Joe in his gaffetastic splendor, I fear our servers would explode, so here’s just a few of the thousands that will live on as classics forever.

First off, remember the Vice Presidential debate? The moderator Gwyn Ifel, alluding to the fact that Dick Cheney had been a strong Vice President, asked Sarah if she would carry on in that vein, which she said she would. This caused Biden (and the media) to lose it, as she cited the Constitution. Biden, who actually teaches the Constitution, got it all wrong. They chastised Sarah for weeks though.

Article I, Section 1 makes it clear that the Vice President is the President of the Senate, and while only having a vote in case of tie, has actual powers within the Senate. In fact, during the last hours, when the Marxists were shoving ObamaCare down America’s throat, Biden stood ready, in his capacity as President of the Senate, to overrule the Senate’s parliamentarian, had the Marxists’ plans been thwarted by him.

Of course, that’s heavy stuff, and why should a man who had only been in the Senate for 35 years, and taught the Constitution on weekends, know all of this. Of course, Sarah Palin, the Governor from way up there in Alaska knew it!

Again, that’s heavy stuff. Sheriff Joe does a lot better when you just let him talk!

Here’s Vice President Smart Ass talking about that three letter word J-O-B-S

And who could ever forget Chuck Graham? Stand up Chuck!

While we could do this for hours!

I want to leave you with one of my all time favorites. Knowing she would be interviewing Sarah Palin, and taking a break from her anti-Palin advisers former Senator Sam Nunn and Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haas, who coached her for the Palin interview, the Perky One did a softball interview with Joe Biden. This is Joe at his absolute gaffetastic best, just makin’ it up as he goes!

As Couric stares lovingly into his eyes, Good old Joe says:

When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,. Look, here’s what happened.

Now I love this one on many levels. First, you got a two-fer. Both Biden and Couric are as clueless as they come. Can you imagine if that was Sarah Palin babbling that nonsense? Couric would have lost her mind right then and there! Instead, she studied up hard on Sarah and was aided by top Marxist-democrat operatives. It’s was almost like the Perky One worked for the DNC. Oh, wait ....

Anyhow, back to the fun. Biden got this so wrong it’s truly phenomenal. I mean a lesser person would have to work hard to do what just comes natural to Biden.

First off, when the Stock Market crashed, in 1929, Herbert Hoover was President. FDR was still the Governor of New York. Roosevelt wouldn’t take office until March of 1933. (presidential inaugurals used to happen in March)

Second, while television was in the concept stage, no such thing, in workable form, existed. FDR’s famous "fireside chats" were all broadcast over the radio. Radio was the way most Americans got their news and entertainment at home. This was true into the 1950's.

Roosevelt would indeed go on to be the first President to appear on television though. On April 30, 1939 NBC started broadcasting. This was opening day of the New York World’s Fair. This was a weak signal, and there were around 1000 viewers total.

NBC's experimental New York City station was licensed for commercial telecasts beginning on July 1, 1941.

Read more here.

In case you are wondering, the first televised presidential inaugural was Harry S Truman’s in 1949

As one can see, as shocking as it is to learn that Sarah Palin is a mere mortal, and stumbled while speaking, in the grand scheme of things, others have done far worse.

Don’t let the left wing and their media partners distract you from Sarah Palin’s strong and powerful message, or the positive contributions she is making to our world.

Anti-Palin Protesters: "I hate the Constitution!"

Leftist Lowlight Exhibit A

As pro- and anti-Palin protesters clashed at California State University Stanilaus just prior to Gov. Palin's fund-raising speech on June 25, 2010, one leftist called himself communist and said, "I hate the Constitution." The leftist anti-Palin protesters were loudly cursing her and and her supporters. One of their standard slogans of the day was "eat the rich". They displayed sexist signs referencing Gov. Palin's breasts, and expletive-laden signage including a sexual reference to TEA partiers.

Leftist Lowlight Exhibit B:

In this full-length video from the same event, leftists absurdly chanted: "Sarah Palin go away! Racist, sexist, anti-gay!" The reporter questioned, "how can Sarah Palin be sexist as a woman?" The protester's response was that "the Republican Party has been against womens' rights" and that Gov. Palin owes a debt of gratitude to "liberals and progressives who made her way easier." He claimed that she is "a little bit ignorant about womens' history."

Let there be Bold Differences, No Pale Pastels

The reporter noted a stark contrast between the the pro-Palin protesters and the leftists. Gov. Palin's supporters all had American flags. Only a single leftist had a very small flag. One leftist carried a piñata in the form of Gov. Palin's body. Piñatas are meant to be broken with a stick, which presumably is a fate this protester desired for Gov. Palin. Another carried a sign with at least one expletive on it. In front of that protester, a woman told the reporter that she did not think Gov. Palin was a true feminist and thought her policies were "anti-Christian."

He interviewed a pro-Palin protester who could not understand the sexist meme and factually stated that Gov. Palin's speech sold out and brought over $200,000 for Stanislaus, which helped fund scholarships and other programs. One pro-Palin protester reported that the leftists - who routinely claim to be for peace and against violence - threw a bottle of Gatorade at her group. Other pro-Palin protesters sung God Bless America. When asked why she supports Gov. Palin, one pro-Palin protester responded, "she's an American, she's a mother, she supports our soldiers, I support her values....she believes in the Constitution."

Microcosm of a Constitutional Crisis?

These two groups clashed in Gov. Palin's name. Ultimately, their respective protests may not have been about Gov. Palin at all. Did not one of the leftists say, "I am a communist. I hate the Constitution"? Did not our current President - an avowed leftist, a socialist - once say he thinks "the Constitution is a flawed document"?

The pro-Palin group meanwhile clearly stated one of the reasons they love and support her: "She believes in the Constitution."

Very dangerously, these clashing protests were quite likely about conflicting visions of our Constitution. Gov. Palin last week referred to an article written by Thomas Sowell who authored a book called none other than A Conflict of Visions. People got upset because he drew a parallel to our current political climate and the rise of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei - National Socialist German Worker's Party - otherwise known as "Nazis."

We are indeed facing a time of choosing: our Constitutional federated republic, or a socialist regime.


Video - Governor Palin Visits Modesto Hair Salon

By Adrienne Ross - www.motivationtruth.com

While Governor Palin's visit to California to speak at Stanislaus University was much anticipated for some time, she did take some people in the state by surprise. The Modesto Salon beautician, who was called out of the blue, said she enjoyed styling the Governor's hair. While she worked on her, they talked about women in politics, the latest styles, and other fun things. She also said she was sweet and a good tipper.
