Rush Limbaugh: I Really Admire Sarah Palin

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

On Monday night Rush Limbaugh called into Greta’s show and discussed a the Tea Party and the destruction the Obama regime has brought to our nation. He also talks about the strong conservative women we have running for office this year.

At the end of the interview Greta kinda puts Rush on the spot by asking which politician he admires the most. At first Rush seems to side step the question, not wanting to play favorites.

With that said, Rush then goes into great detail about how much he admires Sarah, and why. He also reminds listeners that the left will always tell you who they fear the most.

This is nothing new for Rush though, as he has always had high praise for her. Rush, who is no fan of John McCain, took to calling him “John McBrilliant” as soon as he announced Sarah was the vice presidential pick.

The entire interview is great. A must listen.

It’s On! Lt Col Allen West Calls Out Obama And The Congressional Black Caucus

By Gary P Jackson

The Marxist-democrats are up to their old tricks again. They can’t win on ideas, so they must do evil little things to their opponents. This is especially true when their opponent is a conservative black man. I mean how would it look if it got out that blacks can leave the plantation and prosper!

The latest attack is on Lt Col West.

The Florida Democrat Party sent out a mailer all throughout District 22, where West is handily beating Congressman Ron Klein in the polls. In this mailer they published West’s Social Security number. I suppose this high tech lynching by the party of the KKK was meant to intimidate Lt Col West, maybe even make him drop out. Somehow I think that’s going to be a losing effort.

Remember, this is the man who told his staff and supporters that once he is sworn in as a Congressman, he is going to walk up to Nancy Pelosi and tell her to: “Give me that damned gavel!” This is also the man who said of Obama: “I can’t stand the guy, I absolutely can’t stand him!

From Javier Manjarres at The Shark Tank:

Welcome To The Jungle” 

At the “Vets for West” picnic today in Delray Beach, Florida, Congressional Candidate Allen West in true form called out the Democrat Party and its spineless minions that include none other than Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Allen has already sent Madam Speaker a message-Allen West to Pelosi- “Give Me that Damn Gavel!“) and ‘the Messiah himself, President Barack H. Obama.

The Congressional Black Caucus and Congressman- impeached Federal Judge Alcee Hastings have announced that they will be campaigning against West on behalf of Congressman Ron Klein. President Obama and Speaker Pelosi will be in Congressional District 22 next month stumping for the embattled Congressman Klein, who has been lagging in the most recent public opinion polls.

Last week the the Florida Democrat Party released Allen West’s Social Security number in an attack mailer that they financed, hoping to demoralize West into either backing off or quitting the race out right, but there’s no chance that will happen. This ploy has actually backfired on the libs, as West is now in the media spotlight and is fielding dozens of interviews because of this coward-ass play by the Democrats-earned media that is worth its weight in gold.

This sort of intimidation, by both Black and White Marxists, is nothing new. When current RNC Chairman Michael Steele, then Lt Governor of Maryland, ran for the Senate, he was met with all sorts of attacks.

Under the guidance of then DSCC Chair, NY Senator Chuck Schumer, Marxist-democrat operatives illegally accessed Steele’s credit report.

Many Racial slurs from both White and Black lefties we sent Steele’s way. As Michelle Malkin reported at the time:

Black Democratic leaders in Maryland say that racially tinged attacks against Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele in his bid for the U.S. Senate are fair because he is a conservative Republican.

Such attacks against the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland include pelting him with Oreo cookies during a campaign appearance, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and depicting him as a black-faced minstrel on a liberal Web log.

Operatives for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) also obtained a copy of his credit report — the only Republican candidate so targeted.

But black Democrats say there is nothing wrong with “pointing out the obvious.

In case you wonder, the left threw Oreo cookies at Steele because in their mind, he wasn’t really Black. Just Black on the outside. To them he was acting “White” in the inside.

Remember, to the left, any deviation from their rigid ideology makes you a traitor to your race, sex, whatever. Conservative women receive the same vile treatment by the left. The left, The Marxist-democrats are, at heart, fascists, Nazis. They know their diseased outlook on life doesn’t sell to normal people so they have to do two things: Lie about who they are and what they are about, and intimidate as many people as they can into conforming to their sick ways.

Michelle Malkin has a whole lot more about the evil aimed at Michael Steele by top Marxist-democrats here.

The Marxist-democrat party has a 150 year legacy of institutionalized racism.

Francis Rice has a powerful article exposing the evil these Marxist-democrats are capable of. From the article:

In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this call is made for all Americans to unite, engage in nonviolent civil disobedience and vote in November to stop the Democrats from shredding our Constitution and governing without the consent of the governed.

History shows that during the 1960s Democrats used racist slurs and brutality against Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a Republican until the day he died, and other nonviolent activists who were trying to stop the Democrats from denying civil rights to black Americans. Today, Democrats are using similar reprehensible tactics against conservatives and Republicans, especially black Republicans, who are trying to stop the Democrats from stripping civil liberties from all Americans.

Democrats use racist invectives to denigrate black Republicans, demeaning them as “sellouts“, “Uncle Toms“, “House Negroes“, “House N-word

While claiming to be racially sensitive, Democrats use racist invectives to denigrate black Republicans, demeaning them as “sellouts“, “Uncle Toms“, “House Negroes“, “House N-word“, or worse. The list of black Republicans attacked by Democrats is long and includes RNC Chairman Michael Steele, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, General Colin Powell and Justice Clarence Thomas.

On the left-wing Internet website called “The News Blog,” Democrats posted a doctored photograph of RNC Chairman Michael Steele while he was the Lt. Governor of Maryland and running for a Senate seat. Democrats depicted Steele as a “Simple Sambo” with a blackened minstrel-style face, nappy hair and big, think red lips. The cartoon caption read: “Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house“. This contemptible racist stereotype is the same one Democrats used to demean black men during the era of slavery and segregation.

Dr. Condoleezza Rice was the object of particularly vicious racist attacks by Democrats. In addition to several other appalling images of Dr. Rice produced by several Democrats, cartoonist Jeff Danziger denigrated Dr. Rice as an ignorant, barefoot “mammy“, reminiscent of the stereotyped black woman in the movie “Gone with the Wind” about the slave era black woman who remarked: “I don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ no babies“. This is the type of racist stereotype Democrats used to demean black women during the era of slavery and segregation.

A video was shot by WKRN Video Journalist Beau Fleenor at Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee that shows Al Sharpton demeaning Gen. Powell and Dr. Rice, when Sharpton was asked to give his opinions about whether Powell and Rice were “House Negroes“.

An article that appeared in a Portland, Oregon paper was one of many exposing how hardly a ripple of protest was made by black Democrats when Harry Belafonte publicly denounced Gen. Powell as a “House Negro“.

You simply must read the rest of this riveting article here.

We all know the Marxist-democrats haven’t had an original thought in 100 years. This is why they fail miserably every time they are in power. This time, with radical communist Barack Obama at the helm, they have gone too far. November is coming, and it is going to be a reckoning. The vile Marxists can try all of the scare tactics and intimidation they like, but brave leaders like Lt Col Allen West won’t stand for it. The left has picked a fight it can’t possibly win.

If you would like to help Lt Col West “take that damned gavel from Nancy Pelosi’s hand,” drop by his website and donate to the cause:

http://allenwestforcongress.com/ 

While you are there, make sure you check out the opportunities to volunteer. Lt Col West is a great leader. We need him in Congress. That is why Sarah Palin, among others, has endorsed his efforts. It’s why we endorse him as well.

Susannah Fleetwood: 6 New Rules to Fight the Left: Bring Out the Mama Grizzly

By Gary P Jackson

It’s no secret that the left hates women. Much like minorities, the left tolerates women because they need the votes, but deep down, they can’t stand ‘em, especially conservative women. The women on the left hate other women as well. The diseased ideology of the left trumps all: Race, religion, nor gender matter not to this bunch. You either conform, or else. The left does not tolerate dissent.

Sadly, many males, so-called conservative males, have lost their mojo. They have become timid. Too afraid to stand up for themselves, let alone the ladies among us. This lack of testicular fortitude among our male “leaders” has really come into the spotlight since 2008, and the introduction of Sarah Palin to the nation.

No one in recent memory has inspired such hatred from the elites, both on the left and on the right. They simply can’t stand the fact that this woman, with a true pioneering spirit, has become one of the most powerful people in the nation. It kills them that Sarah Palin has risen to the top levels of power, and yet has never been to the “right” schools, or joined the “right” clubs. My goodness, she didn’t even have the decency to murder her unborn child when she found out he had Downs Syndrome. That just won’t do!

Of course Sarah wasn’t the first, nor will she be the last person of integrity, male or female, who is attacked by the elites. Unable to compete in the marketplace of ideas, Marxist-democrats, and establishment Republicans are reduced to sounding like grade school children, hurling insults at their opponents, and trotting out inconsequential events from decades past.

The latest to attract the ire of the radical left and the Republican elites is Christine O’Donnell, a solid conservative, who, while never holding office, has spent years working and advancing conservative causes.

The attacks have gotten insane. Simply insane.

Of course, the real reason women like Sarah Palin, Christine O’Donnell, Nikki Haley, and Sharron Angle are being portrayed as “sluts and nuts” is because they are strong, conservative leaders. The elites in both parties know the rise of constitutional conservatism is being fueled by women. Women who are pissed off, and ready to clean house! They are direct threats to both the stranglehold the radical left has on our Republic, as well as the weak, go along, get along elites in the Republican Party. And as we have seen, the Republican elite doesn’t give up it’s power easily, even when defeated in an election!

In short, the only ones with any cojones are these conservative women.

They mad as hell at the direction this country has taken, and actively doing something about it. They are sick and tired of the BS from the left, and the Republican elite.

Susannah Fleetwood has penned a great piece taking these losers head on, and issuing a call to go all “Mama Grizzly” on those who would attack women with hateful nonsense, rather than debate the issues.

Fleetwood starts with scum bag Bill Maher:

Most people who didn’t live in a cave are probably somewhat familiar with the left’s recent attacks on Christine O’Donnell. First, it was that she was against masturbation in 1995, now it’s that she dabbled in witchcraft when she was in high school. (No, seriously, I’m not making this stuff up–these people are just that pathetic.)

Now, granted, Bill Maher (the man who first engaged in this attack on O’Donnell) is obviously trying to paint Christine O’Donnell as crazy or out of the mainstream, by implying that she’s some sort of a secret witch. (Wait–I’m confused. First she was a radical Christian who was against masturbation, and now, she’s a witch? Which one is it?) However, Bill Maher is one to talk about others being out of the mainstream. First of all, this guy is perpetually surrounded by a coterie of skanks, and his look is free-clinic chic, to say the least. Second of all, Maher dressed up as the Crocodile Hunter for Halloween, after the guy had tragically died from a stingray piercing his heart. To say that was “in bad taste” is the understatement of the millennium. And finally, Maher referred to Bristol Palin as a “Hillbilly Heroine” on his TV show.

So, my response to people who say that we should take Bill Maher’s accusations of witchcraft seriously: really? We should listen to this degenerate with regard to which candidates we support?! (No I’m not shouting–I’m growling.)

However, this story has now gotten a lot bigger than Bill Maher or Christine O’Donnell–and if you will all bear with me, I will explain exactly what I’m talking about.

Fleetwood is just getting wound up!

This is a long, but excellent dissertation. An absolute must read. Check it out here.

BTW, this doesn’t just apply to women. Conservative men get attacked as well, and the same excellent points Fleetwood makes in support of women, also apply to us dudes.

Simply put, we must no longer tolerate the attacks against us. This is war. A war for the very soul of our nation. The “turn the other cheek” way of doing things won’t work with these people. They are ruthless. They never stop attacking, ever.

Fleetwood takes a chapter from The Untouchables in her piece, recalling Sean Connery’s Malone explaining the “Chicago Way” to Kevin Costner’s Eliot Ness:

Here’s how you get ‘em. He pulls a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.

That’s the Chicago way!

This is the attitude we must adopt. (metaphorically, of course) Remember those attacking conservative women, and men, are the enemies of Freedom and Liberty. All they have to offer is tyranny and enslavement.

It’s time to take the gloves off and fight back. Go all Mama Grizzly on their sorry behinds!

Breaking: Bob Dole Endorses Christine O’Donnell

By Gary P Jackson

This is exactly what Christine O’Donnell needed. After acting like spoiled children since Christine O’Donnell took out far left radical “Republican” Mike Castle in the Delaware primary, the Republican elites needed to be taken to the woodshed.

Charles Krauthammer, and Karl Rove, who has some serious explaining to do, really jumped the shark after Christine won a crushing victory against Mike Castle. These elitist fools seemed genuinely disturbed that a regular person was about to become a United States Senator, then set about trashing her for days. Then they had the audacity to complain her poll numbers hadn’t received a large victory bounce.

That’s kinda expected when the “smart” people in your own party are trashing you. Idiots.

Of course, Christine isn’t the first to beat an establishment hack for the Republican nomination this year, Nikki Haley, Dr Rand Paul and Sharron Angle were savaged by the “good old boys” after they won too. In Nikki Haley’s case, it was a full court press during the primary as well.

That’s what makes this endorsement so special. Bob Dole, a war hero and elder statesman in the party, by endorsing Christine, is telling his fellow Republicans to grow up and support our candidate and stop acting like spoiled brats.

Dole, who is in Walter Reed Hospital, awaiting knee surgery, had this to say:

Christine O’Donnell message resonated with the voters, and to the surprise of many she defeated Congressman Mike Castle, who many of us thought would win. The primary is over and in my opinion it is time for voters to join hands and support Christine O’Donnell. The Delaware seat is important and the winner in November could well determine whether Republicans or Democrats control the Senate.

I find many of the attacks on O’Donnell to be personal and lacking in balance and fairness. If her campaign wishes I am willing to assist in a limited way since I am still a patient at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I will have surgery Monday, September 27.

An aide said Dole also contributed the maximum donation amount allowed by law to Christine’s campaign.

Bob Dole has always been a class act. A principled politician who got things done. This is a very generous gesture from one of our true statesmen.

We wish the Senator well on his surgery Monday and pray for a speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, Mike Castle is looking to join Lisa Murkowski as one of the newest members of the “Sore Losers Club” that also includes DeDe Scozzafava, Arlen Specter, and Charlie Crist, to name just a few. Jim Geraghty is reporting that chances are 50/50 that Castle will enter the race as a write in candidate.

Honestly, in my opinion, this would be about as perfect as it could get. For one thing, since Castle is such a far left guy, and very well known to the people of Delaware, he’s certain to hurt Harry Reid’s “pet bearded Marxist” Chris Coons, more than Christine O’Donnell.

This would also continue to make the case that we truly do need to rid the party of this sort.

Castle was solidly rejected by the Republican voters in the primary. Wasn’t really close. It would be hard to see a scenario where all but the most ardent Castle supporters, i.e. close friends and family, would vote for the guy, especially with the stakes so high. After all, the ONLY justification to vote for Castle any of our precious, sainted “moderate” friends (including Rove and Krauthammer) could come up with was making that seat red!

They literally could make no other case for giving the far left George Soros approved Castle the nod, except they thought he could beat Coons. Never mind the polls showed Christine O’Donnell, not Castle beating Coons, until the GOP elites turned on the juice trying to help Castle beat Christine.

The likely scenario will mirror Alaska, where the polls have shifted dramatically now that Daddy’s Girl is mounting a write-in campaign. The latest Rasmussen polling shows Joe Miller cruising to a victory with 42% of the vote in a tree way race. Murkowski and the democrat, Scott McAdams, basically split the rest of the vote with Daddy’s Girl getting 27% of the vote and McAdams getting 25%.

The dynamics in Delaware are even more in favor of Christine O’Donnell should Castle make one last pathetic attempt to hold on to his power. .

Murkowski is a center-left Big Government Statist, who certainly appeals more to the base of the democrat party than the base of the Republican party, but there is no comparison between her and Mike Castle, who is a hard core leftist. Granted, Chris Coons is a self described Marxist, but he’s almost bankrupted his county, and raised taxes a total of 43% during his tenure, and is looking to do even more.It’s completely reasonable to think democrats, given a chance to vote for Coons or Castle, will choose Castle, simply because they know him, and they know chances are he’ll caucus with the democrats anyway, should he win.

On the other hand, the Republican turnout in Delaware was three times as high as the democrat turnout on primary night. The expected turnout for the Republicans was 30,000. More than twice that many voters pulled the handle for Christine.

There is at least a 2:1 enthusiasm gap, nationwide, between the energized Republican voters and the democrats.

With Bob Dole stepping in and bringing some unity to the Republican Party, things are looking quite good for Christine O’Donnell indeed.

A Tour of Wasilla, Alaska with Bristol Palin

By Gary P Jackson

Entertainment Tonight visited with Bristol Palin and her dance partner Mark Ballas, as Bristol gave Mark a bit of a tour of her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska:

Dancing with the Stars” contender Bristol Palin gives her pro partner Mark Ballas a tour of her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, and ET is along for the ride!

With Bristol at the wheel of her pickup, the dance partners were on the road to the dance studio in town for rehearsal, with Bristol pointing out the various town sights along the way, from her high school and the local bowling alley to the house where she grew up.

Mark, we are going to our only dance studio in Wasilla,” says Bristol. “And then we have one in Anchorage, but that’s like an hour away. … [My sister] Piper takes hip-hop class here, and ballet and jazz and tap dance, and she has for a long time, and our cousin takes dance lessons there.

Mark asks, “So when school’s out, weekends, where would you go hang out?

We would be snow-machining, or camping or fishing or hunting, four-wheeling or shooting stuff,” replies Bristol.

As they arrived at the town’s dance studio, Bristol was stunned by a warm welcome by family, friends and fans — and mom Sarah Palin. Bristol signed autographs and posed for pictures before heading into the studio to rehearse her quickstep.

Bristol tells ET that when she flies back to Hollywood, son Tripp will be there with her, along with mom Sarah, who will be in the audience Monday night on “Dancing with the Stars.

I get to come this week,” says Sarah. “Grandma went last week, it’s my turn this week, and definitely I’ll be there.”

Click on the image above to watch the video of Bristol and Mark.

There is more video here of the Palin family at home.

Check out the cool photos at the Dance Bristol Dance Facebook page here.

We are really happy for Bristol. She is having fun and doing pretty well for someone who is not a dancer. With all of the craziness going on in the country right now this is a welcome diversion, if only for a few hours.

Mark seems to be a really nice guy. Bristol is really blessed that he was chosen to be her partner. He’s incredibly talented, not only as a dancer and musician, but as an instructor. He’s very patient and very generous. There seems to be a real chemistry between the two. That’s needed with any team for it to work well.

It also looks like Mark is having a blast on his first trip to Alaska. When he isn’t performing or rehearsing dance moves with Bristol, he’s been tweeting and posting photos like this one with Mama Grizzly herself:

Check out more of his photos here.

The next round of competition is Monday night on ABC. Be there or be square.

Powerful Video: “The Last Best Hope”

This is the issue of this election. Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

~ Ronald Reagan, October 27, 1964 from: “A Time For Choosing

By Gary P Jackson

This is simply an incredible video. Created and produced by Ben Howe, the video expresses the both the frustration and the hope of the American people.

Our out of control government has triggered one of the greatest political awakenings in our nation’s history. Ordinary everyday men and women, who have never done anything political in their lives, are coming together, organizing, and making a difference.

All across the nation common sense conservatives have run for office and won their primaries. We have the greatest opportunity in a generation, or more, to turn this nation around, and take government away from the “little intellectual elites” up in Washington, and put it back into the hands of We The People.

November is coming.

Get involved. Get organized. Get ready for November.

Sarah Palin: Lies, Damned Lies – Obamacare 6 Months Later

There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and statistics

~ Mark Twain

By Gary P Jackson

Man, this doesn’t need me messing it up with a bunch of commentary. Release the Kracken! 

Lies, Damned Lies – Obamacare 6 Months Later; It’s Time to Take Back the 20!

It’s now six months since President Obama took control of one-sixth of the private sector economy with his health care “reform,” and the first changes to our health cEMCare system come into effect today. Despite overwhelming public dislike of the bill, we were told that D.C. knows best, and there was nothing to worry about, and we’d be better off swallowing the pill called Obamacare; so, in defiance of the will of the people, the President and his party rammed through this mother of all unfunded mandates. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.

Remember when the president said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor“? Not true. In Texas alone a record number of doctors are leaving the Medicare system because of the cuts in reimbursements forced on them by Obamacare! The president of the Texas Medical Association, Dr. Susan Bailey, warns that “the Medicare system is beginning to implode.”

Remember the Obama administration’s promise that Obamacare would cut a typical family’s premium “by up to $2500 a year“? Not true. In fact, fueled by reports that insurers expect premiums to rise by as much as 25 percent as a result of Obamacare, Senate Democrats are contemplating the introduction of price controls.

Remember when the president said in his address to Congress that “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions“? That turned out to be yet another one of those “You lie!” moments. We found out that Obamacare-mandated high risk insurance pools set up in states like Pennsylvania and New Mexico will fund abortions after all.

Remember the promise that Obamacare would “strengthen small businesses“? Not true either. The net result of Obamacare is that small businesses will face higher health care costs, new Medicare taxes, and higher regulation compliance costs, while the much-hyped health care tax credit for small businesses turns out to be almost impossible to obtain.

Remember the president’s promise that his bill would ensure “everyone [has] some basic security“? False again. Besides the great uncertainly that Obamacare hampers businesses with, companies now find it is actually cheaper to pay the $2000 per employee fine imposed by Obamacare than to keep insuring their workforce. This leaves millions of American workers at risk of losing their employer-provided health insurance.

And remember when the Obama administration said they would not be “rationing care” in the future? That ol’ “death panels” thing I wrote about last year? That was before Obamacare was passed. Once it passed, they admitted there was going to be rationing after all. There has to be. The reality of Obamacare is that it enshrines what the New York Times called “The Power of No” – the government’s power to say no to your request for treatment of the people you love. The fact that the president used a recess appointment to push through the nomination of Dr. Donald Berwick as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services tells you all you need to know about this administration’s intentions. After all, Berwick is the man who said, “The decision is not whether we will ration care – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open.

By the way, when the administration was talking about that independent board that has the statutory power to decide which categories of treatment are worthy of funding based on efficiency calculations (that, again, sounded to me like a panel of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions about your loved ones – which, again, is what I referred to as a “death panel“), it was another opportunity for Americans to hear the truth about Obamacare’s intentions.

So, yes, those rationing “death panels” are there, and so are the tax increases that the president also promised were “absolutely not” in his bill. (Aren’t you tiring of the untruths coming from this White House and the liberals in Congress?) When the state of Florida filed a challenge to Obamacare on the basis that the mandates in the bill are unconstitutional, the Obama Department of Justice filed a motion to dismiss the suit by citing the Anti-Injuction Act, which blocks courts from interfering with the federal government’s ability to collect taxes. Yes, taxes!

Once the bill was passed it was no longer politically inconvenient for the Obama administration to admit that it makes no difference whether the payment is a tax or a penalty because it’s “assessed and collected in the same manner.” The National Taxpayer Advocate has already warned that “Congress must provide sufficient funding” to allow the IRS to collect this new tax. Pretty soon we’ll be paying taxes just to make it possible for the IRS to collect all the additional taxes under Obamacare! Seems as if this is another surprise that the public found out about after the bill was rammed through.

But perhaps the most ridiculous promise of all was the president’s assurance that Obamacare will lead to “bending the curve” on health care spending. Yes, rationing is a part of the new system, and yes, Obamacare does raise taxes. But because the new government managed system is so incredibly complicated and expensive to run, health care spending will actually rise instead of fall.

Don’t believe me? Then take a look at the Congressional Budget Office’s admittance that the CBO’s original estimate of the total costs of the bill were off by around $115 billion. Its new estimate is now above $1 trillion, and even that may be way too low. A more realistic figure calculated by the Pacific Research Institute puts the number at $2.5 to $3 trillion over the next 10 years! This is probably what President Obama was referring to when he admitted recently that he had known all along that “at the margins” his proposals were going to drive up costs. Give us a break! Only in this administration would they refer to a $3 trillion spending increase as “marginal.”

Next time he comes to us with another one of his harebrained proposals for a budget-busting federal power grab, let’s make sure we remember the president’s admission that he was lying all along when he told us his health care plan was going to cut costs. He is increasing costs. He admits it now. Period.

Higher costs and worse care – is it any wonder why people are overwhelmingly in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare? Politicians who have vacillated on this issue need to be fired. Candidates who don’t support “repeal and replace” don’t deserve your support. No amount of money spent on Washington’s “government-wide apolitical public information campaign” (otherwise known as “propaganda“) will convince Americans that this awful legislation is anything other than a debt-driven big government train wreck. We need to repeal and replace it, and that can only happen if we elect a new Congress that will make scrapping Obamacare one of its top priorities. We can replace it with pro-private sector, patient-oriented reform that the GOP has proposed.

On March 23, when Obamacare was signed into law, I launched my “Take back the 20” campaign, focusing on 20 congressional districts that John McCain and I carried in 2008 which are or were represented by members of Congress who voted in favor of Obamacare. They need to be held accountable for those votes. They voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them. We need to replace them with representatives who will respect the will of the people.

That’s why today I’m launching a new Take Back the 20 website at www.takebackthe20.com!

TakeBackthe20.com provides information about the candidates in these 20 districts who are committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare. It has links to their personal websites and their donation pages. It allows you to read up on them, and then support them in their race to defeat those who gave us this terrible bill.

We have to send Washington a message that it’s not acceptable to disregard the will of the people. We have to tell them enough is enough. No more defying the Constitution. No more driving us off a financial cliff. We must repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.

It’s time to make a stand! Let’s take back the 20!

– Sarah Palin

This is a devastating indictment on ObamaCare, Congress, and the Obama regime. Take note that Sarah is the only one with the stones to call Obama what he is, a liar.

From Sarah’s New Website:

20 House Democrats from districts we carried in 2008 voted for the health care bill

It’s been six months since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. Despite overwhelming public dislike of Obamacare, we were told that Washington knows best and there was nothing to worry about. Nancy Pelosi said Congress had to pass the bill so that Americans could “find out what is in it.” We found out that it’s even worse than we feared.

Join me in standing against those who stood with Obama and Pelosi in voting for this disastrous bill. The Democrats from 20 districts we carried in 2008 voted for Obamacare. Now we can vote against them.

Let’s replace them with good conservatives who will vote to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered, results-driven, free market reform that provides solutions to people of all income levels without bankrupting our country.

Let’s reclaim the power of the people from those who disregarded the will of the people.

Don’t get demoralized, get organized. It’s time to take a stand.

Get involved. Get organized. Get ready for November.

Sarah Palin: Oh Yeah, I Would Run For President If Everyone Else Sucks

Vodpod videos no longer available.

By Gary P Jackson

OK, I admit, I stole that headline idea from our friends over at The Right Scoop, but it sums it up so well!

Sarah talks with Greta about all things political. First they talk about Christine O’Donnell, and then Lisa “Daddy’s Girl” Murkowski’s sore loser write in bid up in Alaska against the Republican nominee, Joe Miller.

You can tell Sarah is feeling invigorated right now. Right off the bat she mentions that, thanks to the corrupt “lamestream media,” we now more about Christine O’Donnell’s past than we do Barack Hussein Obama’s!

Oh yeah, she went there.

As always, Greta asks Sarah whether or not she will run in 2012, and as always Sarah tells her that she is focusing on whipping the Marxist-democrats in November. That’s of course, how it should be.

Unlike the usual suspects, Romney, Gingrich, and the rest of the establishment elite, who lust after the presidency, spend all of their time angling for the presidency, wanting it so bad it hurts, one really gets the impression that when Sarah says she is fine doing what she is doing, she means it.

I still remember a couple of events last year that really left a lasting impression on me. One was in June, 2009. It was a dinner in Anchorage that featured Michael Reagan. Sarah introduced him. At the time she was fighting Obama’s Alaska Mafia © as well as the corrupt media hot and heavy. In her speech she rightly said the left wanted her to sit down and shut up. Sarah let it be known that she wasn’t about to sit down and shut up though, and she implored the audience, and Americans nationwide, to stand up with her.

Sarah told the audience: “Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up.

That was powerful, but only a prelude to what was coming. Less than a month later, July 3, 2009 to be exact. Sarah Palin had her own “Declaration of Independence” speech, and handed over the reins of her government to her Lt Governor, Sean Parnell. This was Sarah Palin being the ultimate statesman, relinquishing power for the good of her people.

Contrast that to the way the defeated Republican elites are acting. We’ve seen Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Lisa Murkowski, and now possibly Mike Castle do anything to hold on to the power after being soundly defeated. It’s like they have chained themselves to their desks so they can’t be removed from office. It’s their birthright, you know.

When Sarah gave her Independence speech, she told the stunned audience that neither she, nor anyone else, needed to hold office, or have some sort of title to make a difference. Of course the media and the elites in both parties laughed and bloviated. They wrote her off. She was finished.

Since then Sarah has been putting on a clinic. She is schooling the whole world on how someone can be the leader of an entire movement, arguably the leader of the FREE world, with nothing more than a laptop and common sense. Oh, and a work ethic like no one else’s.

With all that said, and let me be clear, I totally believe what she says. I absolutely believe that Sarah would be happy to go home and just kick back with Trig and Tripp and enjoy her family. Sarah was more than happy to just go back to Alaska and be Governor after the 2008 election. She could have been contented to continue to be the most successful and popular Governor in America.

The problem is, the left, the insane haters, and Obama’s hand picked thugs wouldn’t let her. They couldn’t let well enough alone.

I think we will see the same dynamic take hold after these mid-term elections. Events will be such that Sarah Palin will be called upon to serve. We know the Tea Party has no appointed leaders, and that’s as it should be, but the nation as a whole is in dire need of true leadership.

Sarah makes it clear (and has been making it clear) that she would be open to a run of there was no one else filling the void. Well, let me help her out! Sarah, there is no one filling the void!

There are a ton of names out there, some well known, some totally unknown, but there are no leaders. There are a bunch of people who lust for power and glory, but there is no one with the proven abilities and proven record like Sarah Palin.

The comparisons are always there. It’s very easy to call Sarah this generation’s Ronald Reagan or this generation’s Maggie Thatcher. Frankly though, Sarah is of our time. While she possesses many qualities of both of those great leaders, and many more, the truth is Sarah is one of a kind. A unique leader with her own skills and abilities.

Like Washington, Lincoln, Reagan, and Thatcher were the leaders for their time, Sarah Palin is the leader for our time.
