I hate the GOP.

A Note of Thanks to Our Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin and me at NOLAI am not threatened by strong, confident and beautiful, yet loving women like Sarah Palin, thanks to an equally confident, strong, beautiful and good woman who I admire in my personal life.. someone who has never shied away from a challenge, who has understood that integrity comes first no matter the cost, and who I have a close (and complex) relationship with based on trust, my mother. I wonder how many women critical of Sarah or her supporters can say that.~IM

By Isabel Matos

Two years ago today I met Governor Sarah Palin for the very first time. It was at the New Orleans Investment Conference. It was a day I will never forget.

The story I never told was about the woman who sat behind me at the event. She annoyed me to the point where I ended up moving from the seat I had secured which was just a few feet away from the lectern where Sarah was about to speak.

I got their early and was smack in the center of the room, first row. The guests started trickling in after the panel Sarah was on which I had missed because there was not a minute to lose. Had I not spent the time getting ready in the hotel room, I would have missed the window of opportunity I had to think about what I would say to her once we met. That one-on-one with her was my focus and the sole reason for my trip there. When the picture was finally taken it was time to sit down and enjoy the keynote.  Please keep in mind I had not had anything to eat since my flight that morning. All I had was a little box of raisins to save me from being a voracious boar on the premises if provoked. I was seated in a perfect position in the room but all the woman who sat behind did was complain about Sarah once she found out I was her enthusiastic supporter which I was proud to show.

“I like Sarah but she needs more experience.”
“Sarah needs to, you know.. read more books, too.”
“If Sarah wants to be taken seriously she needs to do learn more foreign policy…” “Sarah dresses trashy. She needs to look more Conservative.. like Jeb Bush. Jeb Bush is a real Conservative” (I didn’t know Jeb Bush dressed in women’s clothes) “Sarah is great, but .. but..”

I was ready to pop her. It was the first such confrontation I had in real time with a “concerned” Palin supporter in our party. I wasn’t about to lose my cool in a room full of over five hundred guests. The thought of the risk of it being covered on the news was too great so I found a new seat. Once I settled in it (further off to the right, still in the first row) I was able to concentrate on positioning my camera and enjoying the speech which was fabulous. Sarah flirted shamelessly at the mention of Todd’s name (something else women are jealous of, unjustly so.. who wouldn’t be happy for someone who is in a happy marriage no matter the politics; it’s unconscionable not to be) rubbing her foot on the back of her calf at one point.

The point of the story is, I did not like that woman. She claimed to be Republican but did and said everything you would expect from a grumpy next door neighbor who had never had a pleasant exchange with kind women all her life.  There is no war on women by the right on women like there is from the left against women from the right. There just isn’t. Theirs is far worse but there is still a war by women against women on our side even if it pales in comparison and this is a great opportunity for me to address it based on what has been bothering me a bit.

We are ALL supposed to in this community, lead by example. More than any other movement out there, we should take the time to think about how our actions are not isolated. They affect us all, and Sarah in particular. That being said, taking the high road does not mean taking nonsense or disrespect from colleagues who are supposed to be in your corner if you are doing the right thing. Why mention this?

I am about to expose a WOMAN who happens to be a FAKE conservative. She is one of many (I am sure) in the state of Texas.  She is posing as a Republican to garner support for an agenda that is not ours, amnesty. The fact that she is a woman or a Latina does not matter either. H.e.r. a.c.t.i.o.n.s. do. A rhino is a rhino regardless of race, gender, creed or office held.  They are political animals. Their actions are deceptive and corrupt. It is all fair game. IF and when a politician is guilty of wrong-doing, I can’t help but want to see them exposed, but the first reaction people have when they hear the truth about something that does not fit their narrative is to kill the messenger.  While I have faith in our efforts to overcome this, I don’t see how comments by women against women help the cause. If we can’t get it right on our side, it’s not worth the trouble to do so.

Below is the video of the conference in its entirety. The separate clips are finally together. I had a 15-minute limit on YouTube and some comments during transitions were missed. All in all, I got the entire speech in. The conference was during Hurricane Sandy. One publisher who used my tapes had to do so on the remaining power left in their own phones. Needless to say, task accomplished.

It was a thrilling time encapsulating many of our hopes and fears as it was just before the November 2012 election.  I can’t help but realize, thanks to Sarah’s leadership, how far we’ve come since then. As they say, “today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday” and here we are. Sarah has not failed us. She has been there every step of the way. She has made unbelievable strides as a politician, but she was always great. (Sarah, you don’t need to get better. You’re already amazing.)

Sarah has not changed since we first met her in 2008 or allowed the immature, vicious attempts at character assassination change her message. It has been fortified, in fact, for which we should be grateful. But she would not be able to do what she does if she didn’t know we had her back. We owe it to her and her family.

Thank you, Sarah. Because it was the theme folded into this article, thank you in particular for the way you have shown how we should treat each other as women. Even though we don’t always get it right, the message is loud and clear. Like sisters.

Palin: Obama Incompetent on Ebola. Just Words. Heads Explode on Twitter

Sarah Palin Values Voters

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin was on Greta’s show earlier this evening. Shortly afterward, Politico published and tweeted “Sarah Palin: Obama inept on Ebola”.  From the article:

Palin’s comments come as both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have enacted 21-day quarantine policies in their states for medical workers returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa. On Monday, Christie did allow quarantined nurse Kari Hickox to return to Maine.

While Christie has received some backlash for the policy, he continued to defend the decision on Monday.

Palin added that Washington is “trying to call the shots for these governors. There is a void of leadership here and the governors need to step up and step in.”

“We’re going to demand of our leadership in Washington and on the state level to get politics out of this and allow the medical community to tell us factually, what needs to be done,” Palin said.

Palin said she would talk to other governors about enacting a quarantine, if she was still serving that role in Alaska.

“And I betcha we would come to the conclusion that you can’t trust the Obama administration,” she said, adding that liberals are using “Saul Alinsky tactics” to capitalize on crisis.

For a more accurate portrayal of Chris Christie and Governor Cuomo’s motives behind their decisions, check this article out. If you have the chance, too, please go to the thread below and chime in to support Sarah. Just words. Ahem. You can almost see their heads exploding after seeing the article with Sarah Palin’s comments tweeted.

Sarah Palin’s Conservative Response to Elizabeth Warren on SPC (In Spanish)

By Isabel Matos

UPDATE: I am pleased to announce the clip above has received 710 views as of today, 9/29/2014. I’m also happy to add Sarah Palin’s Conservative Tenets (In English) taken from Palin4President 2016 Blogspot, followed by a commentary.

  • “We believe that Washington, D.C. needs to take less of our money. It needs more scrutiny, fewer bureaucrats, and it needs a reminder of the principles laid down in the Constitution that our leaders swear to defend. Furthermore, we believe crony capitalism is infecting both sides of the aisle in D.C. We’re working really hard to root it out of our party.”
  • “We believe in science and God’s magnificent creation overflowing with natural resources. That means we have a responsibility to honor Him by protecting the earth as we develop our resources in an environmentally sound way for mankind’s use.” 
  • “We believe the Internet shouldn’t be censored by the world’s tyrants. That means President Obama should reverse his disastrous decision to hand over control of Internet domain names to the U.N., where it will come under the thumb of authoritarian regimes like Russia and China.” 
  • “We believe in lifting Americans out of poverty and into sustainable jobs. That means government needs to butt out of employer-employee pay issues. And quit over-regulating business and increasing taxes. It drives up operating costs –that’s what affects wages. We believe in America where minimum-wage jobs are not lifetime gigs. They are stepping stones to a good job with sustainable wages. It teaches work ethic. We believe in helping Americans climb the economic ladder, not get stuck on the first rung. A strong economy with good-paying jobs comes from free enterprise, not from a top-down, bloated, big-government, command-and-control economy.” 
  • “We believe that students learn to not make decisions that result in a lot of debt. And we believe that schools need to be more accountable for the insane increase in tuition… and their insane curriculum–many of ‘em. It’s no accident, Elizabeth, that the rise in tuition corresponds with the rise in government intervention. More government isn’t the answer.” 
  • “We believe a pension is a promise. It must be honored. We do that by using common sense and prioritizing budgets that once and for all will end waste and fraud and the crony capitalism and the stupid political decisions that are bankrupting our nation. We believe that in order to keep faith with future generations and fulfill our current commitments to our seniors, well, we must enact sensible entitlement reform.”  
  • “We believe in equal pay for equal work. And President Barack Obama should abandon his hypocritical practice of paying women less than men in his campaigns, in his administration, and in the White House.” 
  • We believe that all men and women are created equal. They claim that we are not tolerant? Well, we believe that tolerance goes both ways. That means respecting people’s right to disagree with you, instead of trying to intimidate or silence us. We believe the answer to free speech that you find offensive is more free speech, not less.”  
  • “We believe that legal immigration helped make this country strong and vibrant. And that means welcoming law-abiding, hard-working immigrants who wish to come here legally and pledge their allegiance to the United States of America. Furthermore, we believe, as none other than Cesar Chavez believed, that illegal immigration hurts the country. It unfairly hurts working-class Americans of all races, all backgrounds who are seeking good-paying jobs, security for their families.” 
  • “We believe women have a right to their bodies, just as babies have a right to their living, breathing bodies nestled in a mother’s womb. And anyone who wants contraception, more power to you. Continue to freely buy any kind you want, no one is stopping you. We’ll fight for the right of private businesses, including Hobby Lobby, to work with you to figure out health-care coverage themselves in any way the owners of these businesses (that they built themselves) want to, knowing that government intervention just always screws everything up. We believe that religious liberty is enshrined in our Constitution, remember?  The government has no right to coerce people to violate their religious beliefs. And if they try to take any of our Constitutional rights away, we will fight for them.
  • “We conservatives believe, as Ronald Reagan said, that you can’t be for big taxes, big government, big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy,” “We stand with the little guy, who is being bullied and beaten down by the progressive left’s failed policies. We stand for free men and free markets–the twin ideals that made this nation strong, peaceful, and prosperous. We say, God Bless America.”

Patriotic Journal (Entry updated 9/29/2014)

As I posted the link above in different places today, people asked for the English translation! In case you haven’t heard, Sarah Palin launched her own T.V. Channel on the Internet: SarahPalinChannel.com.  I;ve been testing reaction to this effort, and it has been overwhelmingly positive.  I am liking what I’m doing for a change as the GOPe can get depressing, but then I thought: what better way to get back at the GOPe than to start appealing to Hispanics who really believe in the Constitution and the principles upon which this country was founded, Hispanics like Sarah Palin’s endorsee Gabriela Saucedo?!

In all, doing these tapes has been inspired by the attractive way Sarah delivers her politics. My first Hispanic viewer said she loved it, and that she finally understood what the fuss over Sarah Palin has been.  That means that Sarah has a great delivery, a great message and she is the best messenger for it.

The delivery in Spanish matters.  No one can speak for her as well as she can speak for herself, she just needed the voice over to connect with Spanish speakers in a way to me she knows best: one-on-one. People need to connect with a person, not just words on a page and that is what made me start this now and not before. It’s becoming a fun hobby.  Please feel free to give me feedback but remember this is for fun at this moment but I happen to think it’s a good idea. Here’s an update on clips published in Spanish, from most to least viewed:

Update 9/29/2014:  Mark Levin Torches Elizabeth Warren over Israel Remarks

“Sarah Palin to Values Voters: Stand Up Stiffen Your Spine; Best is Yet to Come.”

Values Voters

By Isabel Matos

This is an excerpt from a great write-up by Breitbart News writer, Kevin Scholla, Sarah Palin to Values Voters:  Stand Up and Stiffen Your Spine; the Best is Yet to Come” published on September 28, 2014:

“It truly is an honor to get to be here with all of you, and I just want to take some time here to thank you for your boldness, your courage, your ignoring of what the lamestream media does to you and a lot of us so often,” said Palin. “You’re strong and America needs you, needs your voice. So, to just get to kind of share some of that, to empower us all and inspire us all, to enlarge our ranks, I want to take the time to thank you.”

She said it was an honor to speak “to Americans who give more and volunteer more and serve more and do all those things behind the scenes that make America so exceptional.”

“You’re the Americans that the media loves to hate, but, you know, I think there – there’s a book out there that maybe some of them just haven’t really understood and in it, it says, consider it pure joy, my sisters and brothers, when you suffer trials of many kinds,” she said. “And considering the trials that the media dumps on you, this is the most joyful room in Washington.”

The speech closed with a glass half-full take delivered in plain speak. “Keep faith in the American Dream and share it, because the message resonates, and it has since that band of brothers dumped tea in Boston Harbor,” Palin said. “We can be optimistic, as they were. We can be optimistic about the future of our one nation because we’re under God. So stand up and stiffen your spine. The best is yet to come.”

He continues..

The audience clearly enjoyed Palin’s style. Joking about very serious issues to drive home vital points. That’s exactly what makes Palin Palin. In a day and age when we are inundated with teleprompter-reading academic milquetoasts, Palin’s brand of populism is a welcome relief.

As she always does in her speeches, Palin tipped her hat to our military. She also tied that into another disrespectful move by Obama. Recently a photo was taken of the president saluting one of our Marines while holding a Styrofoam cup. Mama grizzlies don’t like that. “Our honored military — when we talk about these national security issues, our honored military, on behalf of all Americans who do support you — and we honor you, we respect you — on behalf of all Americans who feel like I do, to your commander-in-chief, well, we then will salute him,” said Palin. “He still hasn’t learned how to salute our Marines.”

A core message in Palin’s comments was a call to stand up for morals and American beliefs. “It is time for the politics of values,” Palin said. “And I don’t want anybody to be afraid or ashamed of the core values that we are here celebrating.”After all of the hits Palin has taken over the years she still can knock lines like this out of the park with a huge smile on her face. It drives liberals nuts. It delighted those at the summit on Friday.

Palin called out liberals for their tactics of hate. She called those who question why she sometimes doesn’t wear a wedding ring “haters” and intolerant.” We all know media members and politicians engage in these gutter tactics. Few however have the guts to call them out so explicitly like Palin does….

He concludes..

Palin finished on a powerful note. “Don’t be ashamed to proclaim your values and to live them,” said Palin. “We are the movement that says yes — yes to time-tested truths, great virtues, great values. And approaching elections, we’re going to support great leaders that are hammering out and working so hard at that restoration agenda to break this country again from a failed liberal agenda — defeating crony capitalism and respecting and supporting, again, our armed forces so that we may have peace — peace through red, white and blue strength — and to value the sanctity of innocent life, where children are not seen as disposable and babies as punishment as our own president referred to — now, children are the best ingredients in this messed up world. Why in the world would you want to get rid of them? So we’ll support leaders who are not afraid of truth, and we’ll fight for it as ones worthy of a great nation.”

During the speech, Palin inadvertently referred to the White House address as 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue instead of 1600. Despite all of the important fact-filled components of her remarks the media blew that minor faux pas up, passing over her message of hope and traditional values to try to once again slam their favorite Alaskan target.

The response from Palin was perfect. She tweeted shortly after the speech “Doggone it! That explains why my Christmas cards keeps getting returned!”  To read the rest of article, go here.

That was what our conservative values warrior said in her Speech. The attempt by the media to exaggerate the importance of her mistake is appalling. Mark Levin slams national Media for Mocking Palin gaffe.  Think about all the back-to-back interviews, speeches, appearances at rallies, book signings, and other predictions of course which she has talked and written about. Think of all the great pieces on her timeline and articles she has written to wake voters up as to what is happening in Washington. Each one is only topped by the next.  Sarah Palin also has a new channel (not an inexpensive venture) so she can be available to her supporters. But Mum is the Media word on that, Impeaching the lawless President, and all the above.

Sarah Palin is tireless. We know hard she has worked. I was just heartsick how one little instant as opposed to the sheer volume of her active engagements and her courage in taking on the president and the GOPe.  It will be used to embarrass her in the future. (Fox had better not go there. Fox Nation did take Tony Lee’s article: Sarah Palin Goes Rogue on Pennsylvania Ave and published it on their site. I suspect the worst (for political expediency later on).

It is those who are unworthy who are glued to the set, FB or near her home just waiting to see her slip (even fall).  I felt badly because she has worked so hard and because they will hang to something as irrelevant as this to spread a depiction the does do damage.  The fact is, she has succeeded at proving the media wrong, even under all the scrutiny she has been under, time and again. And she handled this latest beautifully. It’s time to move on. Again.

One should never judge a person by how they fall, but by how they pick themselves up from the fall.  She’s proven to be a leader for that alone. It takes character to do what she does every day.  She is real. People love that. Just to make the point, Gov. Palin asks NOT to have teleprompters at her speeches.

No teleprompters!  Just think how anyone else would fare without them? It shows her confidence as a competent, impressive and compelling speaker.

So where are the potential 2016 candidates. Are they calling attention to this country’s issues or Obama? Where IS Jeb Bush? He does not chime in on much.  He doesn’t take media hits for taking risks by going against Obama like Sarah does.  So he is the perfect candidate? For the media, yes. To fail.  What to do know about Jeb Bush? He is for acts of love, but what else? What does he spend all his time doing.. Fundraising? Plotting? Can we know?!

Well, here’s an update (9/29/2014) on what he plans to run on: Common Core and Acts of Love.  You heard me. That’s it, voters. Bring it, Jeb!

Palin: Stopping ISIS (Spa subtitles)

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin along with Allen West restore sanity to the discussion of foreign policy, namely the war against Radical Islam.  There are others who have spoken out on the issue of ISIS and the president’s lack of leadership as commander in chief, but I will highlight Governor Palin’s approach which is presidential, but coming in part from the viewpoint of a military mom.  I added sub-titles in Spanish to the original clip from the Sarah Palin Channel: “Stopping ISIS” .

All of these voice-overs and clips in Spanish or bilingual are still in an exploratory phase. None of it has been approved by anyone from TAPP or SPC. I am simply doing it is part of a continuation of my effort to get the message out to Ronald Reagan Republicans who have be ignored by our leaders locally. Trust me, it is not a small number.  (I am trying to reach some now but it is not easy when your community leaders have been corrupted by the GOP establishment machine which has become an integral part of the local media that does NOT report on Obama or our movement either.  It does NOT represent public opinion, though, or the lack of interest in someone as politically dynamic as Sarah Palin.)

Yesterday a reader come by (a concerned troll, most likely) to say Sarah Palin should drop the idea of running for president and run for Senate instead. Part of the reply was for him/her to check out the Sarah Palin Channel to see for him/herself how Sarah exudes executive qualities in matters big and small.

Sarah Palin’s channel is a very unique experience.  I can’t recommend it enough.  We always complain about our leaders being inaccessible to us, and here we have online direct communication made available for an incredibly reasonable price and no penalty for canceling: SARAHPALINCHANNEL.com.

It’s ISIS, Not ISIL, Congresswoman!

isis  not ISILryan ily jeb and p

By Isabel Matos

Nice life, Congresswoman, but something is wrong. Maybe a little intervention is just what is in order right now for some political clarity. I will do you a favor and provide useful information anyone can find.  (By the way, readers, I know it’s “Not ISIL”, not “no ISIL” but there’s a reason for it being spelled that way.)

Intentionally or not, you have been referring to a group of terrorists in Iraq and Syria as ISIL, not ISIS, a distinction easy to find. As Allen West points out:

ISIL refers to a group of terrorists that has professed the establishment of an Islamic caliphate that refers to itself as IS (Islamic State).

We should all be referring to the savage and barbaric group as ISIS  (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) and not ISIL (The  Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).

Allen West explains how White House spokesmen, Josh Earnest, and Rear Admiral Kirby from the Pentagon, as well as other voices out of the Obama administration, use the term ISIL and why these distinctions matter:

First, if you choose to refer to this group as ISIL, you have basically rewritten the map of the Middle East and fallen into the trap of not recognizing the existence of Israel and also of Lebanon. If you use ISIL you are then validating the Islamic totalitarian and jihadist claim that the modern day Jewish State of Israel is an occupation state and does not exist in the eyes of Muslims.  He continues here:

Second, if you fall into the trap of referring to this group as IS, you have validated the existence of an Islamic caliphate and through your words lend it recognition and credibility.

West concludes:

Lastly, we need to address this group as ISIS because it is seeking to establish an Islamic state within the borders of two recognized nation-states; Iraq and Syria. ISIS can attempt to break down any borders and not recognize them, but we must. We cannot allow this group to reestablish some 7th century regional caliphate and therefore must fight to reestablish sovereignty…

There is an opportunity here to truly promote a country where there can be respect and coexistence of Muslims, Christians, and other religious minorities. A place that would thoroughly reject the idea of Islamic jihadism and would continue to be a reliable ally of the United States.  Read the entire article plus a video explanation here.

I know you believe in Israel and the importance of sending the correct message to terrorists that we do NOT dismiss them or that we would EVER intentionally use the term to imply support of the establishment of a caliphate that calls itself an Islamic state.  I know that. But as Chairman of the Middle East and North African committee you should know the difference.  In case that information did not get to you (in July), I sent you a tweet last week about ISIS vs. ISIL:

I also took the time to make a clip (in Spanish and English for the locals to hear) to show that you have used the term ISIL instead of ISIS in at least three interviews, including in a segment on a recent appearance on Jose Diaz-Balart’s show on none other than MSNBC.  Maybe it was an oversight on your part, but it leaves me wondering why you would having missed such an important point being in a prominent position on foreign policy matters.

I also added in the clip your explanations for having voted against ending DACA, Obama’s illegal amnesty, none of which made sense to me. When you consider praise from LaRaza for work done in favor of amnesty as reason for celebration and joy, I know something is wrong. You’re out of touch. Your job is to protect us, not push the legalization of illegals, which by the way, are part of the Mexican Cartel who have been chatting with ISIS, the group you refuse to identify as such.  Calling it immigration reform is an insult to our intelligence. WE  KNOW you’re wrong. Who do you represent? Jeb Bush or us?

We will need new leadership in Miami if the Republicans we have continue a communist-enabling (suicide) mission. Enough!

I extend an invitation (and a request for a reply) for a meeting or interview, Congresswoman. In case you missed my visit or the note I left at your office:

Dear Ileana,

Please grant me an interview.  I would present you with facts, not opinion, about AMNESTY, to show it is a communist-driven agenda. I’m not alone complaining you’re inaccessible.  

Thank you.

“I Can See Russia..” Back in the News. Sarah Palin Speaks Out About Tina Fey.

By Isabel Matos

UPDATE 9/22 7:12 p.m.:  Here’s the shortlink to the clip above for efficient sharing: http://youtu.be/_C_65naapVk (Thank you for all the feedback!)

I’ve had enough of reporters in the Spanish-speaking community in America imitating the liberal media, the comics and the lies about Sarah Palin that distort the truth about the message she delivers and the incredibly intelligent individual that she is.  It’s back. The Russia meme and Fey impersonation hype is to call attention away from those two items mentioned: her message and intelligence.

The Daily Caller recently published an article mentioning an interview Sarah Palin with the Hollywood Reporter where she said Fey should pay her something for having capitalized on her impersonation.  The clip was done to get that message out to Spanish-English speakers, and to emphasize that Tina Fey was wrong about not only the comment about Russia, but a couple of others as well, for several reasons.  Sarah Palin never said she saw Russia from her house:

 “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.” ~ Gov. Sarah Palin, 2008.

From the article in the Sarah Palin Information Blog which shared an editorial from the New York Sun by Benyamin Korn who wrote:

Governor Palin, of course, didn’t actually say “I can see Russia from my house.” That was Tina Fey parodying her reply to Charlie Gibson, to whom she said of Russia: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska.” But Mrs. Palin did actually comprehend the significance of Russia’s proximity to America. The secret program AP reports on was codenamed “Washtub.” The wire advises that “with the benefit of hindsight, it would be easy to dismiss ‘Washtub’ as a harebrained scheme born of paranoia.”  Don’t miss the rest of the information in the SPIB piece.

In the same article a picture of Sarah with decorated US Marine Corps war hero, Dakota Meyer, shows the area Governor Sarah Palin was talking about in 2008.  Sarah Palin Information Blog shared this image From the editors who took this photo shot, with Russia photo-bombing in the background:

palin-russia

Not specifically mentioned, but that is not the gravel from her house in Wasilla (just in case someone wondered…).

Gary explained it thoroughly in an article on this site (it was hysterical, too, criticizing those who still believed this..). He included clips with residents and reports about the location in Alaska, little Diomede island, where you can actually see Russia:

Little Diomede Island is a very small island on the Bering sea. An extreme place to live where temperatures reach 50 degrees below zero, with 40 mph winds for added fun. In the winter, when the sea is frozen, and the skies are clear, you can indeed see Russia, and if you want to risk it, walk there. It’s a roughly 2.5 mile hike.

Now, you would think anyone with common sense would give credence to the truth but we are dealing with a culture that has been dumbed down and taught to laugh at jokes that are really meant to spread a lie about a person who is doing everything possible to defend their rights.  Comedy is a tool to keep BelieV(ot)ers politically and pathetically misinformed.

The clip which was done in Spanish is English-friendly.  As a favor, I am asking you to please support this effort by sharing the clips or article wherever you can if you think it is important to reach smart Hispanics who happen to watch liberal Spanish-speaking news programs but who are not getting the complete story because the media is being dismissive, or because they insist on repeating the tired old mockery and joking lies. The left and the GOPe both benefit from the misinformation, needless to say.  It’s not considered pandering to inform bilingual constituents.  The whole point of doing these clips is to reach Ronald Reagan Republicans who happen to speak Spanish and English who our party abandoned. We are hungry for new leadership.

Sarah Palin: It is Time to IMPEACH (In Spanish, Updated with Clip in English)

impeach wave of children

By Isabel Matos

Updated September 4th, 2014. Impeachment has not received much attention lately, the story seems to have died out just as the media and our representatives would like it to.  We can keep the pressure on!  Illegality is unacceptable. The President and Congress whose job it is to keep us safe should protect us by not ignoring the Constitution.  A clip in English has been added to the one below in Spanish:

Please SHARE SHARE SHARE the clips or this article for the momentum to continue.

These are my transcribed notes of Sarah Palin’s presentation.

Well. Enough Is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis for me is the last straw. It is like a battered wife. No mas. Obama knows without borders there is no nation. Opening our borders has been deliberate. This is the fundamental transformation of America. It is the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history.

He’s given taxpayers change. Maybe that’s what he meant by hope and change.. False hope. Taxpayer’s change. He’s given these to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. It’s because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty that an untold number of illegals will kick off their shoes and come on in. These illegals will be competing for our sparse number of jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job that he was hired by voters to do. It goes without saying it is his job that to secure our borders .

It is his job.. The federal government is trillion dollars in debt. Many cities are on the verge of insolvency, our overrun health care system, police forces and social services, our schools and our unsustainable generous welfare state programs – they’re already stretched to the max. We average Americans.. we know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than producers?

His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite who want cheap foreign labor can afford for themselves the best security money can buy in their own exclusive gated communities. They don’t care that their friend Obama has tapped us out. We do care because we’re the ones getting screwed as we’re forced to follow all our government’s rules whole others are not required to do so.

The average American worker native born and wonderful legal immigrants from all backgrounds, races and political parties who built this country. Many now feel like strangers in their own land. It’s the American worker who is forced to deal with Obama’s latest crisis with their hard earned tax dollars.

While middle class wages decrease, sustainable jobs get more scarce and communities become unrecognizable and bankrupted due to Obama’s flood of illegal immigration.

Who is looking out for the American worker? Who has their back? Who’s fighting for them. We should!

President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness including his own… That’s the foundational problem here. It is not gonna get any better, friends. In fact, irreparable harm can and I predict will be done in this lame duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and I predict, mark my words, he will next mend the court system with appointments that just will forever change the way the constitution’s role in protecting our rights. It’s time to impeach.

On behalf of the American worker and the legal immigrants of all backgrounds we should be vehemently opposed to any politician, any candidate on the left or on the right who hesitates in voting for articles of impeachment . There are at least 25 impeachable offenses I have seen. These are not made up scandals. These are impeachable offenses. If after all of this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.

To those in Congress.. GOP’ers listen. Those who proclaim and acknowledge and recognize our president’s actions are lawless, I hope you will not ignore the constitution by not using the tools it empowered you with – the articles of impeachment – to stop his lawlessness. If you do then you’re not doing your job.

We hired you to protect the constitution.  We do not have to support what is going on if you do not do your job. Government is of by and for the people. America, we get the government we want. We must come together – United – to tell the President: Mr. President,  you have not done your job to protect the Constitution.

We are in trouble and things are only going to get worse until we send this message:

It is time to I.m.p.e.a.c.h.

Sarah Palin: From Badge of Military Merit to Purple Heart (In Spanish)

Purple Heart

By Isabel Matos

This was an incredible clip by Sarah Palin, and it was awesome to do because it was specially addressed to legal immigrants who make America an exceptional nation. She tells the story of one soldier, among hundreds of thousands, who gave his full and last measure of devotion for his adopted country. It is a real tribute to those who sacrifice for this country who happen to be from different origins.  Thank you, Sarah.

Sarah en Domingo~Sundays with Sarah

ice bucket challenge

By Isabel Matos

Welcome to a new segment I am looking to work on: Sundays with Sarah (in Spanish).  As you may know, I have been experimenting with doing voice-overs in Spanish of six clips so far 1 2 3 4 5 6 that Sarah Palin has been presenting on her new Digital-Television Channel online:

SarahPalinChannel.com

Let’s consider this the start of a journey whose destination is unknown. Let’s see if along the way we can confirm who is or isn’t reporting news fairly. Let’s find written publications and other media outlets and rebut their misleading information with facts in their language. Let’s dispel the tired myths that so many in this community have tirelessly and aggressively debunked over the years since 2008 and expose the places where they pervade. It’s a tall order and I am a dreamer, but…

Let’s see if in this journey we can find legal citizens who already know English but who would connect with Sarah’s message in Spanish because it is the language spoken at home and the culture they identify with first.

Let’s see if we can find bilingual citizens who know there is a status quo they are unhappy with. I do not have them at my disposal, but wouldn’t it be great to have statistics on how many Republicans who watch Spanish television (not radio) lean Republican?  The filter of Spanish speaking media outlets is just as if not more candy-coated and liberal activist than that of the Mainstream Media. It has gone unchallenged.

In this expedition, let’s see if we can lend support or collaborate with the handful of Spanish radio programs that get it (the establishment problem). But how? We are not networking on a daily basis. Let’s see if we can raise  awareness of it and remind folks that the person who ran as Vice President in 2008 put that topic on the map before anyone else did. Let’s inform voters that she is being ignored and/or misrepresented to millions of viewers every day that it is unfair.  This is a massive pursuit.

Let’s do more homework from now on. I hardly watch television but when I do, it’s not in Spanish. Most of the news which is supposed to be political in Spanish intrigues me but it is mostly on Latin America. Each journalist has his or her own niche. When it does cover American politics, it is not what we would like to see. Just like in American news.

It would be interesting to jot down how many times (if) any of Obama’s scandals get mentioned in one week, or whether anything Sarah Palin does that is newsworthy is reported.  When Rino consultants we have mentioned here say she does not appeal to Hispanics, they are in part telling a truth. She has not been pandering like they have, so her message has either been omitted or dismissed altogether. Let’s change that soon.

There are many Hispanic voters who liked Sarah in 2008. They just can’t “put their finger on” why they don’t like her now. They repeat the tired memes we’ve heard so many times about her and they do not like Obama, yet they voted for him in 2012.  Makes you scratch your head.

Sarah Palin delivers a message in such an effective way that she could easily reach many of them again, even millions.  Let’s see if and when her message is delivered in Spanish, 100% of the content would be grasped as opposed to just 1/2 or 1/3 where important content might get lost.

Many bilinguals who speak Spanish at home are legal immigrants and are Ronald Reagan Republicans but watch Spanish news because it is their maternal culture.  It is safe to say they don’t know what is happening inside our party. It is also safe to say that many have been ignored by the Bush’s Progressive Republican Machine. That GOPe factory has cloned more than one community leader who has regurgitated Jeb Bush’s Immigration Reform talking points on more than one occasion, each one bolder in their attempt to push “DOA-mnesty” down our throats. It is only conjecture, but I am sure each one has something to gain from this as promised by the leaders they dare not challenge. In their efforts to appeal to illegals, the party has failed to convey 1. Ronald Reagan’s message of Republican Conservatism and 2. America’s Exceptionalism based on legal, not illegal immigration which are elusively committed to.

It is time to push back and say No Mas (like Sarah did when calling for Obama’s impeachment): No Mas to the GOPe’s abuse of power and corruption.  No Mas to the liberal activist Spanish media lies. No Mas to rewarding illegality by our president and our Republican fools.

Back to the Sarah Palin segment each Sunday (as testing)… I have made six clips in Spanish already 1 2 3 4 5 6 . The response has been overwhelmingly positive: It should be done! The Elizabeth Warren clip has received over 475 views which I’m happy with, but contrast that number to the tens of thousands of views the negative clips got below.

It is no secret that Conservatives still don’t have the edge on fast and vast communication. For whatever reason, our message does not get out more forcefully. The propaganda does. We are doing better, but if you check, most views on clips about Sarah seem to come from the haters.

Here’s a great example. The Fast Food comment was one of her greatest moments in the Elizabeth Warren clip where she referred to the liberal hypocrisy of fighting for the little guy working at Fast Food places for owners they consider evil and in an industry where the food is not vegan:
