Sarah Palin, Allen West, And Jesse Kelly Bring The Awesome To America’s Nightly Scoreboard

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

David Asman is on of our favorite anchors at Fox Business News (and all of Fox for that matter) He is a superb analyst and interviewer. His show, America’s Nightly Scoreboard, is must see TV.

Wednesday night he had on Sarah Palin and the two talked about a wide range of topics, including the stunning victory in progress of Joe Miller’s over Lisa “Daddy’s Girl” Murkowski.

Also joining in are Lt Col Allen West, who Sarah endorsed this spring, and won big in Florida last night, as well as Arizona’s Jesse Kelly.

All three of these outstanding leaders shine here and show why we need them in D.C.

We like Asman’s style. He asks questions, then actually allows his guests to answer them. In this format, Sarah gets a chance to really elaborate on what she’s thinking. She also gives us an insight into her management style.

“Sarah Palin Kicked The Door Open, And A Lot Of Women Started Going Through”

There’s an unsettling of the political apple cart. Sarah Palin kicked the door open, and a lot of women started going through.

~ Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List

By Gary P Jackson

An interesting piece from Yahoo News:

NEW YORK – The suffragists who 90 years ago won voting rights for women would likely shake their heads in wonder at this election, with its “mama grizzly” candidates and high-stakes woman-vs.-woman showdowns.

The women in key races include a rancher and three multimillionaire former CEOs, one a pro wrestling magnate. Two frontier states — Oklahoma and New Mexico — seem assured of electing their first female governor after both major parties nominated women.

Note: Susanna Martinez, the Republican nominee for New Mexico Governor is endorsed by Sarah Palin, as is Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, the Republican Senate candidate in California, who is about to clean Barbara Boxer’s clock.

Yet in spite of celebrations planned Thursday for Women’s Equality Day, marking the adoption of the 19th Amendment in 1920, American women’s share of high-level political power still lags behind scores of other nations.

Women hold only 17 percent of the seats in Congress — well below Europe’s 22 percent and far behind the Nordic countries’ 42 percent — and the major parties have yet to nominate a woman for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign for the Democratic nomination in 2008 collected 18 million votes but still fell short of victory.

The handful of women that you see near the top is just that a handful,” said Erin Vilardi of the White House Project, which seeks to expand women’s role in politics.

At the congressional level, both parties have a hell of a lot of work to do,” Vilardi said. “The culture is still very dominantly male.”

Among the notable developments in this year’s campaign is the emergence of numerous charismatic, conservative women running as Republicans.

In California, wealthy businesswomen Meg Whitman, the ex-CEO of eBay, and Carly Fiorina, ex-CEO of Hewlett-Packard, are the GOP nominees for governor and Senate.

Fiorina is the first Republican woman to take on the Democratic incumbent, Barbara Boxer, since Boxer entered the Senate in 1992, and the race has captured national attention.

In South Dakota, the race for the state’s lone House seat pits the incumbent Democrat, Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin, against Republican legislator Kristi Noem — both of them working moms who grew up on farms. Noem, who helps her husband run a ranch, is one of several GOP woman candidates dubbed “mama grizzlies” because of traits shared with Sarah Palin, the party’s 2008 vice presidential nominee and a political star who’s been doling out endorsements this year.

In Minnesota’s 6th District, the conservative Republican incumbent, outspoken Tea Party favorite Michele Bachmann, is being challenged by Democratic State Sen. Tarryl Clark in what could be one of the nation’s most expensive House races.

Michelle Bachmann will see an easy win here. She will be one of the leaders in the new Congress for sure. She also has Sarah’s support.

In New Mexico, Democrat Diane Denish, the lieutenant governor since 2003, is competing for governor against the GOP’s Susana Martinez, a Latina district attorney who has drawn attention for her tough stance on illegal immigration.

In Oklahoma, Republican U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, who’s been endorsed by Palin, is favored in the governor’s race over Democratic Lt. Gov. Jari Askins.

According to the Center for American Women in Politics at Rutgers University, there have been only two other woman-vs.-woman gubernatorial contests in U.S. history — in Nebraska in 1986 and Hawaii in 2002.

Florida could join New Mexico and Oklahoma is electing its first woman governor — if Democratic nominee Alex Sink can win in November.

One of the most distinctive female candidates is the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, Linda McMahon, former CEO of the World Wrestling Entertainment empire that she and her husband developed. McMahon, who says she’ll spend up to $50 million of her own money on the race, was nicknamed “Crotch-kicker” in a statement from the Democratic National Committee.

In Colorado, the issue of male chauvinism surfaced in the campaign for the GOP Senate nomination. Ken Buck — a prosecutor with a strong Tea Party following — prevailed despite criticism for saying he should be backed over rival Jane Norton “because I do not wear high heels.

Sarah had endorsed Norton. It’s obvious to see why she backed Norton over Buck, despite the Tea Party. Sadly, Buck will just be another “good old boy” establishment hack.

Worldwide, women hold 19 percent of the seats in national legislatures, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union. Its rankings of 186 nations — based on percentage of women in the single or lower chamber of the legislature — has the U.S. tied for 90th with Turkmenistan.

Women have held the top government post in dozens of countries — including Germany, Britain, Australia, Argentina, Israel, India and Turkey.

Several Women’s Equality Day events are planned across the country Thursday.

In California, a great, great, great granddaughter of suffragist leader Elizabeth Cady Stanton will address a rally near the statehouse in Sacramento. In New York, the Susan B. Anthony List — it backs female candidates opposed to abortion — will host a forum on “pro-life feminism.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said the surge of women running as anti-abortion conservatives reflected a “war over who gets to define what feminism means.”

There’s an unsettling of the political apple cart,” Dannenfelser said. “Sarah Palin kicked the door open, and a lot of women started going through.”

Elsewhere in New York, several women’s rights leaders and liberal members of Congress will be speaking at a ceremony renaming a U.S. post office in Queens after Geraldine Ferraro, who in 1984 became the first woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket.

Read more here.

Sarah Palin has has been the driving force behind getting more women involved. Sarah has inspired women all over the country to stand up and be heard. Men too. While Sarah gets a lot of ink for her endorsement of strong Mama Grizzlies, she has endorsed some strong independent, Conservative men as well.

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch: Alaska Elections Show Sarah Palin A Bigger Force Than Commentators Suggest

By Gary P Jackson

Tuesday night was wild to say the least. Your humble blogger is still trying to catch up. One quote that caught my eye, via Twitter is noteworthy though.

Jack Welch, the well respected former CEO of General Electric, took time away from talking baseball to weighed in on Sarah Palin and the phenomenal night she and Joe Miller had in Alaska:

Alaska elections show Palin a bigger force than commentators suggest…Tough being an incumbent so far

After wading through all of the media on Wednesday, suffice it to say that a whole lot of folks share Mr Welch’s opinion!

Kirsten Powers Long, Hot, Race-Baiting Summer

By Stacy Drake

In the past, I had mistaken Kirsten Powers for a rational human being, regardless of her political persuasion. She always seemed mild-mannered and struck a different chord than most of her fellow left-wing commentators. Was I wrong about that or what?

Last night, I came across a piece she had written for the Daily Beast called, “The GOP’s Long, Hot, Racist Summer.” Yes, that’s the actual title, which should give you some insight into how far off the hinges Ms. Powers has fallen. The article begins (emphasis mine):

Welcome to the summer of hate.

These dog days have brought a veritable festival of racial demagoguery, from a phony “New Black Panther” controversy to Arizona’s draconian illegal-immigrant crackdown to the most recent “ground zero mosque” hysteria.

There’s a lot to digest in those two sentences, so let me give it go…

First of all, I’d like to just go ahead and state the obvious. It’s clear that Powers recently purchased the one-size-fits-all, lefty paint-your-political-opponents-as-racists brush set. These are the brushes they use to paint those whom they disagree with as “racists.” We all know they do this to shut people up, considering the label of “racist” holds much shame in our society. Too bad for them, merely calling someone a racist doesn’t make it so. One actually has to BE racist these days for the charge to stick considering the lefts over-usage of their magical racist paint brush kits.

Now, back to the issues that make up Kirsten Powers’ not-so clever canvas.

She starts by calling the Black Panther voter intimidation controversy, “phony.” I’m sorry, but how exactly is the Justice Department “stonewalling” a case involving Black Panther members, caught on tape brandishing batons outside of polling stations on election day to intimidate Republican voters, “phony?” The entire controversy played out of Fox News, while virtually all of the other networks did what they always do for the administration. They distorted it, or just outright ignored it. Even though the story came complete with eye witnesses, video evidence, a whistle-blower, and a racist (the real kind) member of an organized group who had once stated on camera, “You want freedom? Your gonna have to kill some crackers. Your going to have to kill some of their babies!”… But according to Kirsten Powers, Republicans are the one’s guilty of “racial demagoguery.”

Next on the list of issues Ms. Powers wishes to paint Conservatives as racists on, is “Arizona’s draconian illegal-immigrant crackdown.” I take it Kirsten has never lived anywhere near the border, nor has she ever had to deal with the crime rates, prison population, drain on the overall public fund, overcrowding in schools, and hospital closures as a result of a large number of unaccountable, undocumented aliens living in the community. Well I do and have for many years. Recently however, things have become much worse considering the war between the Mexican government and the powerful cartels, along the border. I wouldn’t expect someone who lives in the Beltway to understand the situation in it’s entirety. But I also wouldn’t expect that same person to view the grievances of a population under assault, as racism.

I have plenty of Latino friends. I also have Latino family members who live in Arizona, who just so happen to support the law that Governor Brewer tried to put into place. A law that is in no way “draconian.” People of the left… If you have not read the Arizona law, please do so pronto, before you too demagogue this simple legislation. You can do so here.

That brings us to the “ground zero mosque hysteria.” Conservatives like Governor Palin have stated for the record, that this is not about the “right” of the Cordoba House to build their Mosque next to the site of the attacks on 9/11 at the World Trade Center. There are many components to this story which I do not have time to go in to. I will just point out that this isn’t about Islamophobia, or “hatred.” It is a matter of sensitivity to the families of the dead, who have asked Imam Abdul Rauf time and time again to reconsider the location. This is about respect to those families and this nation, plain and simple. That’s not hate Kirsten.

Her piece ‘rambles‘ on:

Leave it to GOP darling Sarah Palin to turn up the heat with a bizarre defense of the hateful Dr. Laura’s “n-word” rant.

In a rambling Facebook post, the former Alaska governor asked incredulously: “Does anyone seriously believe that Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a racist?”

Why, yes, Sarah. Yes, we do.

This incident is instructive, because it bears the hallmark of many GOP blunders in the area of race. Palin truly cannot understand why anyone would think that Dr. Laura is racist, or why Palin’s defense of her is disgusting. In Palin’s world, apparently this kind of behavior is acceptable, which tells us quite a bit, actually.

Why didn’t she just spell it out for us? Actually, she didn’t have to. The implication is clear… With that statement, Kirsten Powers tries to suggest to her readers that Governor Palin is racist for sticking up for Dr. Laura, after the statements she made on the radio.

While I think what Dr. Laura said on her show was in very poor taste, I also understood what she was saying. Powers acts as though Dr. Laura was calling someone the N-word, in a hateful way, when that wasn’t the case at all. Did we not just get beat over the head (figuratively speaking) by the media about understanding “context” in regards to the episode between Andrew Breitbart and Shirley Sherrod? If “context” is good enough for Shirley Sherrod, then why isn’t it good enough for Dr. Laura?

So, NO , I do not think Dr. Laura is a racist. I think Governor Palin stepped up (graciously so) to help someone who was being maligned as a “racist” by Media Matters, to highlight that context and point out the left’s hypocrisy on the issue. After all, the left just got done celebrating the life of the former Senator from West Virginia, and former recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, who also had been known to say the N-word from time to time. Although in his case, he meant it in the bad way.

It’s ridiculous the way the left spins each issue in such a manner as to paint these pictures about their opponents, instead of debating the issues on their merits. If they think they can mindlessly throw Governor Palin into the waste bin of maligned Republicans they have targeted with their racist smears, they are sorely mistaken. You see, Governor Palin has a base of support who understands her character. We are fully aware that she is no racist, and we will come ferociously to her defense when such accusations are thrown in her direction.

By the way, if any leftist wants to paint me as a “racist” for writing this… You’re going to have to pick which one of my races I think is superior to all the others, considering I am of mixed descent.

The Greatest Campaign Ad Ever! Young Mattie Fein vs Jane Harman

By Gary P Jackson

Man I love this ad. Funny, memorable, and more importantly, to the point.

Mattie Fein is running against an entrenched Marxist-democrat, Jane Harman, whose husband Sidney Harman just purchased Newsweek. Harman, from California’s District 36, obviously has a dollar advantage, but ads like this will most certainly help get Mattie some attention and get her message out there. 

Harman has a lot of ethics issues, but owning part of a company that is selling sensitive materials to Iran is probably at the top of the heap. She’s also on board with all of the Obama regime’s disasterous policies, and is pushing for big cuts in military spending at one of the most dangerous times in world history. It won’t be easy, but Jane Harman is most definitely one of the Marxist-democrats who need to be shown the door in November.

Mattie Fein has a well rounded resume, and a solid understanding of how both business and government opperate. From her website:

Mattie Fein has a wealth of experience in national and international policy and media. She was an Associate Producer at CNBC and creator of public television’s educational programming for children that promoted cultural awareness and literacy. She has developed strategy for The Washington Times’ Insight Magazine. Her clients have included presidents and CEOs in industries ranging from hotels to tourism to defense, labor, law and firms in Washington, D.C., New York, and London.

Ms. Fein has been a contributor to the Financial Times and CBS MarketWatch and has served as a frequent guest on the BBC regarding Argentine political and economic affairs. Her opinions have been published in publications including the Miami Herald. She was invited by the Foreign Policy Institute of Turkey and Bilkent University to speak about democratic Elections in Iraq, women’s issues in Muslim countries, and human rights.

As a Vice President of The Lichfield Group, Ms. Fein has advised companies and non-governmental organizations on a broad range of issues, including Net Neutrality, the Henry J. Hyde United States and India Nuclear Promotion Act of 2006 to fortify a strategic partnership between the two secular democracies, and the preparation of indictments on war crimes and genocide against Tamil civilians and victims of war crimes in Sri Lanka.

Ms. Fein has served as Communications Director for the American Freedom Agenda, an organization devoted to restoring checks and balances and protections against government abuses. She also was performing the same duties for a new sister organization, The First Branch. Its central mission is to defend and assert congressional prerogatives and responsibilities from presidential usurpation, and to educate voters of the necessity of supporting congressional candidates who will not surrender vital powers over war and peace, taxing and spending or control of information about what the government is doing and why.

As a youth, Ms. Fein was active in theater and the arts and was granted early admission to university on scholarship. She has continued to be actively involved in the arts and dance. She was involved in the oldest women’s theater group in the country at Horizons Theatre, which won the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play.

In addition, Ms. Fein is an avid horsewoman. She has been involved in humanitarian charities within the community that assist third-world countries in education and health programs. She has been a supporter of therapeutic riding for physically and mentally handicapped children, introduced therapeutic riding into international games, and sponsored children from Haiti with special needs.

Ms. Fein resides in Venice, and has three children: a son, 24, who is an actor; a daughter, 20, studying biology and zoology; and a daughter, 14.

Pretty solid resume. As we say all of the time, ever Marxist-democrat, in every election, at every level needs to be defeated. With that said, if you are looking for someone to throw some support behind, Mattie Fein is worth the effort. She is definitely a Mama Grizzly. Check out her website: http://www.mattiefein.com/ You can also follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Sarah Palin’s Powerful Message: Let’s Get Things Done

By Gary P Jackson

On Wednesday, the 9oth anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote, Sarah Palin posted a powerful Facebook note that not only spells out her endorsement philosophy and her battle plan, but also takes time to answer a rather silly attempt by the death cult that is Emily’s List to make themselves relevant.

Sarah also talks about one of the first death panel decisions, one that will effect women with breast cancer.

Oh, and she makes some exciting new endorsements as well.

Let’s take a look at this:

Proud to Support More Women Leaders on the 90th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage

Today marks the 90th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which granted American women the right to vote. Words cannot express the depth of gratitude we owe to those brave feminist foremothers who struggled and sacrificed, endured imprisonment and ridicule, and fought fearlessly to grant future generations of American women a voice. We stand on their shoulders. Our opportunities are their legacy; our achievements, their monument.

In honor of their sacrifice and triumph, I’m proud to endorse another group of strong American women who continue this tradition of service to our country. Their willingness to make sacrifices in order to serve others and make this world a better place by empowering individual Americans deserves our support.

Regardless of whether the many candidates I’ve had the honor of endorsing win or lose this time around, I support them because they boldly shake things up in their primary races. They don’t just sit on the sidelines whining; instead, they are in the arena fighting for commonsense constitutional conservative solutions; and in their oft-characterized (and enormously challenging) “underdog” status, they all exemplify the qualities of a winner who will serve admirably and for all the right reasons.

This is what we admire most about Sarah Palin. She is a strong, decisive leader. She has a solid plan, and has the courage to execute it. She also confuses the hell out of the Beltway elite! The ruling class is all in a tizzy trying to figure out just what in the world Sarah is up to. She’s not following the script. Can’t have that!

It’s actually pretty simple. Sarah loves competition. She knows it makes everyone better. She also knows far too many elected officials are in “safe” seats. This is especially true in the House of Representatives. Through a combination of gerrymandering and showering money on their districts, many congresscritters have turned what was supposed to be honorable and TEMPORARY public service into lifetime employment.

Until we can pass a constitutional amendment establishing term limits for Congress, what Sarah Palin is doing is exactly what we need. Everyone running for office should have a primary challenge, even the good ones. It makes them work for it. Makes them address the issues, and it serves to remind them that it’s not “their seat” they are sitting in. It belongs to the people, and they only sit there by our consent.

Sarah has a level of influence few will ever enjoy, and She is one of those rare breeds that understands how to use it. Politicians are generally too timid, more worried about holding on to their own power, to actually change the game.

It’s obvious Sarah cares more about righting this nation, getting our Republic back on firm footing, than her own political gains, which … somewhat ironically … is exactly why her own political future is so bright.

So let us highlight some more winners.

Martha Roby served on the Montgomery City Council where she fought tax increases and worked hard to reduce government spending. She’s now running to represent Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District with a strong message of reform to get our country back on the right track. Please join me in supporting this hardworking, proud mother of two by visiting her website at www.martharoby.com and following her on Facebook and Twitter.

Renee Ellmers is a true citizen-politician running in North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District. Having worked in the health care industry all her life, she joined countless other concerned Americans at the town hall meetings last summer to protest the disastrous Obamacare legislation. And she didn’t stop there!

Renee decided to join the ranks of patriotic mothers across the country who have the courage to run for office this year and fight to make sure our children have as bright a future as we were given. Renee has an uphill battle against a truly out of touch incumbent who made news not too long ago when he was caught on video assaulting a student who asked him if he supported the Obama agenda. Simple enough question, but this Democrat Congressman who’s been in Washington for 14 years turned violent rather than answer it.

My point with this is that Renee is willing to answer that question. She supports a commonsense conservative agenda which will put our country back on sound fiscal footing. Please visit Renee’s website at www.reneeforcongress.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

We are very happy to see Sarah endorse Renee Ellmers. We endorsed her some time back. She has been working tirelessly, campaigning to replace a truly bad Congressman. Renee has the strong work ethic and common sense values to make a real impact in Washington.

Jackie Walorski will make an excellent representative of Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District, having been born and raised there and serving as a state representative for the past five years. She knows the people, she knows the issues that matter to them, and most importantly, she knows what she stands for – limited government, fiscal restraint, and a proper respect for our Constitution. The incumbent Democrat she’s running against has already launched his first attack ad against her, so I hope you’ll join me in standing with Jackie. She truly knows what public service means. Please visit her website at www.standwithjackie.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Vicky Hartzler is determined to shake things up in Missouri’s 4th Congressional District. She ran an underdog campaign to win her primary and is now determined to challenge a 17-term Democrat incumbent who has long lost touch with the good people of Missouri. Vicky grew up on her family farm and is still a farmer with her husband.

Her diverse background includes being a teacher, a state legislator, a grassroots organizer, a successful small business owner, and a proud mom of a wonderful daughter. She’s a dynamic commonsense conservative who is running to get our economy and long-term fiscal security back on track for her daughter and all of our children. Please visit this farmer’s daughter’s website and learn more about Vicky at www.vickyhartzler.com and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.

Pam Bondi and Brenna Findley are running for Attorney General in their states – Pam in Florida, and Brenna in Iowa. These are both bold, sharp, selfless women who will respect our Constitution, defend their states, protect our rights, and push back against any overreach of the federal government.

We desperately need these conservative leaders who won’t kowtow to the Obama administration’s big government overreach into our states, small businesses, families, and individual lives. Please visit Pam’s website at www.pambondi.com and Brenna’s at www.findleyforiowa.com.

Also on the state level, I would like to endorse Beth Chapman who is running for re-election as Secretary of State of Alabama and will continue to serve the good people there with distinction, integrity, and common sense. Let’s not forget that reform often begins with the tough work at the local level, and it’s important to get good conservative reformers working from the ground up. Please visit her website at www.bethchapman.com.

On this anniversary of women’s suffrage, let’s take a moment to be grateful for the diversity of the debate. Women don’t walk in lockstep with each other in politics, any more than men do. We should be proud of our ability to engage in a civil discussion and healthy debate. I know I am.

Unfortunately, I’ve recently come under attack for speaking up for sisters who seek to serve in public office. The sad part is that the attack comes from other sisters who happen to be on the other side of an issue that has been of great importance to American women from the time of our feminist foremothers, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, down to today. I’m speaking of the issue of life.

I feel compelled to offer some advice to our sisters who like to throw stones at those of us who respectfully disagree with them on this issue (and they sometimes refuse to even countenance the fact that some of us can call ourselves feminists and disagree with those who claim the mantle of “real feminists“).

First, ladies, it’s hard to take a critic seriously when they lecture you wearing a bear suit. So, it’s difficult for me to drum up much outrage at this latest ad. But, really, lying about a sister while wearing an Ewok outfit is no way to honor our foremothers on the eve of the 90th anniversary of their victory. But, that aside, I’d love to know where you got those get-ups. Halloween is just around the corner, and Piper and Trig would look adorable as little grizzly bears.

We love how Sarah just hammers these idiots over at Emily’s List, a death cult that exists solely to promote abortions for all. We saw this idiotic video the other day, and frankly have been laughing so hard we simply hadn’t posted or commented:

All words fail to do this justice. Suffice it to say, people take one look at these clowns and can’t stop laughing. This bunch has really gone off the deep end. They can’t compete in the marketplace of ideas, so they are forced to lie their asses off while dressed up in ridiculous outfits.

We simply LOVE that Sarah has this effect on her enemies. Exposes them for all to see, and reject.

How about a little pallet cleanser? Here’s the genuine article:

One final thing, Thomas over at Palin Promotions reports these Ewoks from the Emily’s List death cult are pure astroturf.

More from Sarah:

We face so many challenges today. We struggle to provide a better future for our children despite our economic downturn and a federal government intent on robbing from our children’s tomorrow to pay for politicians’ recklessness today.

We struggle against the Obama administration’s pending decision to remove a drug treatment for breast cancer based on cost considerations and what could be argued as a person’s “productivity in life” rather than medicine.

Death panels

We struggle against our reliance on foreign countries to provide necessary energy supplies while America’s plentiful energy resources sit idle, warehoused under locked-up lands, just as the unemployed sit and wait for government to allow them the opportunity to responsibly utilize our resources. We struggle to ensure that America is strong and vigilant so that our sons and daughters can live by the motto “Peace through Strength.”

We may disagree about how to get there, but I’d like to think that we all want an America that is strong, prosperous, peaceful, and free.

So, ladies, let’s lead. In the words of that great American woman, Abigail Adams, “We have too many high sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.” Let’s get things done.

~ Sarah Palin

Accountability, national security, energy independence, and the American spirit. Sarah hits it all here. It’s no wonder Sherman Frederick wrote that “One Sarah Palin equals three Barack Obamas“!

Sarah is focused like a laser on helping Americans take back our government from the ruling class. She is the kind of leader we rarely see anymore. Intelligent and courageous, she is going where others fear to tread.

Las Vegas Review-Journal: One Sarah Palin Equals Three Barack Obamas

By Gary P Jackson

In the political parlor game of who helps who the most, it’s not even close. One Sarah Palin equals three Barack Obamas when it comes to energizing and connecting with the Nevada voters

~ Sherman Frederick, Publisher: Las Vegas Review-Journal

We are liking Sherman’s logic here. For the shear energy Sarah Palin brings to any issue, no one can beat her, especially Obama. From his weekly column:

I never doubted Sarah Palin would support Sharron Angle in a big way in her bid to upset Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Now comes word from The Daily Caller that the Palin cavalry is on the horizon. You can read the report here.

Will Palin’s active involvement in support of Angle help her?

You bet.

It’s the X-factor that the Reid camp most dreads. Despite spending millions to throw everything but the kitchen sink at Angle thus far, the Reid campaign can’t open any kind of substantial lead. That’s a bad sign for Sen. Reid, who has long maintained a big disconnect with most Nevada voters. According to the last Review-Journal poll, Angle has closed the gap to come within 2 points of Reid.

So, as summer breaks into fall, the Angle/Reid race shapes up to have President Barack Obama in Reid’s corner and Sarah Palin in Angle’s corner.

In the political parlor game of who helps who the most, it’s not even close. One Sarah Palin equals three Barack Obamas when it comes to energizing and connecting with the Nevada voters.

According to the latest Rasmussen poll Sharron Angle is tied with Harry Reid, two points up if you count those who are leaning her way.

Clint Didier: Sarah Palin Is Working Her Tail Off For This Country

By Gary P Jackson

Let me tell you what, don’t you take anything away from Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin is working her tail off for this country. She’s been all over this country to different states. She’s going where she thinks she can do the most good, I just thank her for her efforts.

~ Clint Didier

From an interview with Clint Didier by Anna King in OPB News, via Palin TV:

The Senate candidate that had backing from the Tea Party, Clint Didier garnered about 12 percent of the vote on Tuesday’s primary election.

Didier relied heavily on his endorsement from Sarah Palin for his bid against Republican Dino Rossi.

Didier says although Palin didn’t come to Washington, her backing still helped his campaign.

Clint Didier: “Let me tell you what, don’t you take anything away from Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin is working her tail off for this country. She’s been all over this country to different states. She’s going where she thinks she can do the most good, I just thank her for her efforts.

He’s best known for his NFL football career. Late Tuesday night Didier said he hasn’t decided yet if he will run for elected office again.

Clint is a class act.

We also agree with Clint. Sarah Palin’s love of this great nation shows in how hard she is working to defeat the evil that has gripped this nation. She is the one leader who is working tirelessly to stop the Obama regime in it’s tracks and restore Freedom and Liberty.

Like George Washington before her, she may not win every battle, but you can bet she’ll lead us to the ultimate victory.

“We Remember” A New Message From Keep America Safe

Flashback: Barack Obama Says Muslim Call To Prayer “One of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

By Gary P Jackson

In the wake of Obama’s big endorsement for the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, better known as the Cordoba House, I think it’s time for a big “told ya so” to everyone who went nuts when sane people were pointing to all of the warning signs about Obama and his radicalism.

One had to really work at it not to see what America was in for if it elected Barack Obama.

We could go on for days about Obama’s long time affiliation with the members of the domestic terror group Weather Underground, whose Marxist founders are still quite active. Then there is his hate filled, racist, anti-American preacher Reverend “God Damn America” Wright, whose “church” openly supports Hamas. Then there is his buddy Khalidi, a former spokesman for Hamas. (just to name a few)

Too many American’s ignored the warnings. Again, one could go on for days talking about the whys and hows, and the stupidity of it all.

Anyhow, hopefully Americans are starting to open their eyes and realize what we are dealing with here.

I still remember people going nuts if anyone even suggested that Obama was a Muslim, or leaned that way. Of course, since being elected, Obama has gone out of his way to promote his Muslim brothers while ignoring American traditions of all kind.

Way back in March of 2007 writing for the New York Times, Nicholas Kristof gave us our first clue:

Obama: Man of the world

The conventional wisdom about Barack Obama is that he’s smart and charismatic but so inexperienced that we should feel jittery about him in the Oval Office.

But that view is myopic. In some respects, Mr. Obama is far more experienced than other presidential candidates.

His experience as an antipoverty organizer in Chicago, for example, gives him a deep grasp of a crucial 21st-century challenge — poverty in America — that almost all politicians lack. He says that grass-roots experience helps explain why he favors not only government spending programs, like early childhood education, but also cultural initiatives, like efforts to promote responsible fatherhood.

In foreign policy as well, Mr. Obama would bring to the White House an important experience that most other candidates lack: he has actually lived abroad. He spent four years as a child in Indonesia and attended schools in the Indonesian language, which he still speaks.

I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office (excerpts are on my blog, www.nytimes.com/ontheground). He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.

Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

It’s interesting that a guy who thinks we have 57 states (or possibly more) and talks about Navy “corpse-men” can recall “the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent.

Priorities.

This, BTW, is the opening lines from the prayer, in English:

Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet…

If you can get past the voice over, this video has the Muslim call to prayer Obama describes as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.

Here’s another video of Obama dissing the Christian faith that has surfaced. It’s interesting to note that some of the things he mocks from the Bible, are actually being done today in the name of Mohammed and Islam. Make of this what you will:
