New SarahPAC Mailer Strongly Suggests Sarah Palin Will Mount A 2016 Presidential Bid

Many long time supporters of Governor Sarah Palin, those of us who have followed her career since early 2007, a year and a half before she was to be chosen as the Republican nominee for Vice President and became an international figure, have been wondering why the Governor has been silent now that several Republicans, including her good friend Ted Cruz, have announced they are officially in for 2016. Maybe, just maybe we have our answer.

Other than jabs at Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney in her Iowa speech, which prompted Rick Moran at PJ Media to say this ….

Palin sounds like a candidate to me. And she’s teeing off on Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney, implying that their establishmentarianism is no better than the status quo — a potent theme that will resonate with the conservative base.
She also implies that Bush/Romney aren’t strong enough to get in the trenches with Hillary and the Clinton machine to duke it out. She certainly describes herself when she says she thinks the GOP candidate should be “considered a bit avante garde.” In fact, the way she describes the ideal candidate is like she’s looking in a mirror…

Palin may have other reasons for running, including denying Romney and Bush a cakewalk to the nomination. Her favorability ratings may be a liability, but her name recognition is far better than any other conservative candidate. Her entrance in the race would be a wild card that could peel off support from both establishment and conservative candidates alike.

I have one pick with Moran’s comments though. The last major poll that included Sarah Palin left her off as a potential candidate, but measured her favorables and unfavorables against a huge field of potential candidates. The 2014 poll had Palin’s favorability at 70%, among Republicans and Republican leaning independents. That’s UP from 67% in 2012 and considerably higher than anyone the pollster, Public Policy Polling, offered up as an actual candidate. Also, people shouldn’t dismiss lightly the fact that Governor Palin has been considered one of the Most Admired Women in the Word in Gallup’s annual survey since 2008, never being ranked lower than third on the list! Palin’s supposed unfavorability is more fantasy than fact!

Governor Palin has focused all of her energy, when it comes to 2016, on Hillary Clinton. She has hammered Hillary for not being able to multi-task, and use one phone for official government business, and one for personal use, going so far as to post a photo of herself, as Governor, holding her newborn son juxtaposed against Hillary’s claimed inability to figure it all out:

Sarah Palin Multi-tasking w Cellphones

In yet another scandal, Hillary was exposed as using her device for both personal and official State Department communications. A big no-no!

Earlier Governor Palin reminded Americans that while Hillary has erased her entire email history at the State Department, after using an illegal computer [something that would have anyone else already serving time in prison] Palin’s own e-mails were put under a microscope with the left wing Washington Post actually asking it’s readers to help scour through some 25,000 emails looking for the “juicy partsWaPo and it’s readers had hoped to find all kinds of incriminating evidence of SOMETHING, but instead found page after page of e-mails proving that not only was Governor Palin incredibly competent, but proved to be one of the hardest working public servants in the country. Something those of us who have followed Governor Plain for the better part of a decade already knew!

Sarah Palin email Truth

The Palin e-mails also put an end to the lie that she supported and took money for a “bridge to nowhere” when they revealed she wanted to give the money back, and earmark it for replacement of the I-35 Bridge that collapsed in Minnesota, killing and injuring many. Of course, as there was no legal way to do that, the money went to Alaska’s general fund. We have a link to many of Governor Palin’s official e-mails, as well as her outstanding record of accomplishments a Governor, here.

Several days ago Governor Palin posted this on Facebook:

America – ready for Hillary? Some of us are. Join us and begin here…

WATCH the Game-Changing New Video That Drops A Bomb On Hillary And Can Finish Her

A truth bomb of epic proportions …

She included a link to Western Journalism and the article America Rising Releases New Hillary Video: ‘Trustworthy?’

Governor Palin has consistently said she is “Ready for Hillary” and not in the way the former Secretary of State and world class criminal thinks!

Which brings us to a new mailer from SarahPAC that is making the rounds on Twitter. The letter is titled “I’m ready for Hillary. Are you? A second header proclaims “The First Shot: Clinton vs Palin” Along with the letter, is a copy of the front page of the Boston Herald, dated January 25, 2015 that screams MAKE WAY FOR SARAH and proclaims: GOP Strategists: A Palin ’16 bid is no joke

These mailers are sent to folks who support SarahPAC.

Here are a couple of the tweets, one showing the letter and the newspaper tear sheet, and one with just the newspaper:

The Boston Herald article is now hidden behind a pay-wall, but our friends at Conservatives4Palin archived it. Here’s the important part:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s announcement that she’s “seriously interested” in running for president in 2016 could shake up the GOP field, say strategists, who point to the former vice presidential hopeful’s strong base, fundraising ability and star power.

You’ve got to take her seriously because she can raise a lot of money, she has a big following and she has been through a national campaign, which is important to be competitive in a presidential primary,” Republican strategist Chris Brown told the Herald. “I think she really changes the field and she has the potential to hurt a lot of candidates — especially Tea Party conservatives.”

[…]

Former Alabama GOP Chairman Marty Connors said Palin “has built a career around being underestimated.
I would immediately put her in as a top- or mid-tier candidate if she decides to run,” Connors said.
[S]he has a built-in constituency and so she wouldn’t have to raise the money that some of the other candidates would and I think she’d be an exciting candidate that a lot of people would rally around.

As to raising money, I think Haley Barbour got it right when he said of Governor Palin a few years back: “She could raise enough money to burn a wet mule!” In case you don’t speak Mississippian, that means she can raise a hell of a lot of money! But I also agree with Connors, in that she is a known quantity and has not only a huge following, but the ability to attract the news media, who will follow her every move, like the second coming of Elvis!

Governor Palin’s media partner PassCodeCreative recently created a new video for SarahPAC Catch Me If You Can which reminds us about the big stir he bus trip caused a few years back!

Governor Palin and her family drove the media nuts, because she never gave them an itinerary, saying …. rightly so, her trip was about getting out and seeing America and talking to regular Americans, rather than a publicity stunt, like Hillary’s recent Scooby Do bus tour that was a complete and total flop! Governor Palin used this video to make fun of Hillary’s failed tour! And to poke the media again!

In the C4P article we mention above, Steve Flesher links to another Boston Herald article written around the same time by Adriana Cohen that explains the GOP needs a strong Conservative woman, if they intend to defeat Hillary Clinton [or Liz Warren, for that matter]

The GOP needs women on the ticket for many reasons, not least because it steals the Democratic Party’s thunder. They want to be the “first” at breaking cultural barriers and glass ceilings. With Hillary Clinton expected to be their front-runner in 2016, they’ll use her gender as a tactic to gin up support from their base — especially female voters.
I can already see Emily’s List pushing out emails nationwide saying, “Let’s make history by electing the first female president of the United States.”

Cohen goes on to say this about Hillary [and how Sarah is better]: [emphasis mine]

If you’re a female leader on the Democratic ticket, you’re a “hero” regardless of how many times you put your foot in your mouth, embarrass yourself or worse.

We haven’t forgotten Hillary Clinton saying that we should empathize with our enemies or that businesses and corporations don’t really create jobs. Both absurd statements that should disqualify any candidate — male or female — from any race, never mind the top slot.

But if you’re a female conservative? Watch out! Liberals will pounce and do everything they can to marginalize a conservative woman who runs for office no matter how educated, or talented, or accomplished she is. Liberals only “tolerate” others if they agree with them and follow their agenda.

[…]

The reality is Sarah Palin draws huge crowds at speaking engagements, has millions of social media followers and just as many supporters across the nation.

Hillary Clinton has been giving speeches to half-filled rooms.

Look, we have absolutely no idea what Governor Palin is going to do, but after she considered a 2012 run, for a long, long time, and then didn’t, causing a lot of disappointment among supporters, it’s hard to fathom she would do that again, especially as aggressive as this latest mailer is.

One of our longtime readers, Joy, made an interesting point a few days ago. If you remember, on September 3, 2011 Governor Palin made a powerful speech, to a massive crowd in Indianola, Iowa, which our Stacy Drake recorded.

While Governor Palin spoke of Liberty and Freedom, the main focus was crony capitalism.

Governor Palin has been going after in corruption in government for over 20 years, ever since her earliest days as the junior member of the Wasilla city council! She famously took down the entire Republican Party machine, in Alaska, which rivaled Chicago, and it’s thug politics, in it’s depths of corruption!

Just a few months after Governor Palin’s well received speech, Peter Schweizer’s brand new book: Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich Off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison was released.

The book caused a massive stir, as well as top billing on 60 Minutes. Congress passed a law [though later it was quietly neutered] banning lawmakers from insider trading. Both former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi [D-California] and current Speaker John Boehner [R-Ohio] have made tens of millions of dollars using secret insider information.

Joy noted that Peter’s new book: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich which has caused the Clinton’s to loose their minds and their friends in the media a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out how to protect Hill and Bill, just happens to be coming out at a time Governor Palin has been relentlessly hammering Hillary!

Peter’s new book, which is set for release May 5, 2015 is already a Number One Best Seller at Amazon!

I’m not sure Joy is off base here at all.

Most people know this, but Peter Schweizer served as Governor Palin’s foreign policy adviser after she left office and created SarahPAC. Peter literally wrote the books [plural] on President Ronald Reagan’s foreign policy, which Governor Palin had adopted as the basis for her own, adding new lessons learned.

What is interesting to me, is after serving under Palin, Peter has written exclusively about corruption in government. Clinton Cash will be his third Best Seller in a row on the subject.

Again, we have no idea what Governor Palin is up, but we have it from sources close to the family that her decision not to run in 2012 came down to strong opposition from her mother and her oldest son, Track.

That said, Governor Palin posted this on Facebook January 22, three days before the Boston Herald article was published:

Ha! Believe it or not I received this from… my mom!“:

Sarah Palin Hitchhiking

Take from that what you will!

Is it too early to say Palin-Cruz 2016?!? [or Palin-Jindal]

What exactly is “That woman” thinking about?

  2. Christopher

    Prefer Allen West as VP as long as the report’s by GotNews about West & women employees is false.. West would be great at cleaning out the Muslim & CAIR influence in the government

  3. Or Palin/West 2016!
    She must be a woman with a plan!
    Praying!

  4. AmazedOne1

    I’m sure that Sarah and Schweizer saw each other as kindred spirits because they both held strong stances on crony capitalism! Both had already done significant work in the area before they began working together.

    Just to clarify the timeline a bit here, Gary:

    Peter Schweizer had already been writing about corruption in government before he was hired by SarahPAC. He spent two years writing “Throw Them All Out.” In the Acknowledgments to the book, it mentions that time frame:
    http://www.amazon.com/Throw-Them-All-Out-Politicians/dp/0547573146

    Schweizer began to do issue research and consulting for Sarah for one year, starting on April 24, 2011. His book was released on November 15, 2011. An educated guess (based on the length of the time that it takes to get a book formatted and printed) would be that his manuscript probably was in the hands of the publisher around (or very soon after) the time he joined SarahPAC.
    http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/118/11931827118/11931827118.pdf#navpanes=0
    And his last payment from SarahPAC was April 2, 2012
    http://docquery.fec.gov/pdf/747/12952435747/12952435747.pdf#navpanes=0

    These dates also show that Schweizer had already written his book and then been serving as an adviser to Sarah for over four months when she made her famous speech in Indianola, Iowa, on crony capitalism on September 3, 2011.

    • Gary P Jackson

      To be clear, Peter wrote two non foreign policy books long before that: Architects of Ruin: How a Gang of Radical Activists and Liberal Politicians Destroyed Trillions of Dollars in Wealth in the Pursuit of Social Justice, in 2009

      and

      Makers and Takers: Why conservatives work harder, feel happier, have closer families, take fewer drugs, give more generously, value honesty more, are less materialistic and envious, whine less … and even hug their children more than liberals, in 2008

      But he has focused entirely on government corruption since Throw Them Al Out. He and Stephen K Bannon have also founded the Government Accountability Institute.

      “Randy” Scheunemann, a hold over from the McCain campaign was a Palin adviser before Schweizer, but Palin laid him off because his notion of foreign policy clashed with hers [and common sense] She chose Schweizer because, as you say, they are kindred spirits, not only when it comes to corruption, but foreign policy. Palin is very much a Reaganite. [which is a good thing]

      Regardless of start and stop dates of employment, the two were acquainted, and shared ideas on many things.

      America is a much better place because both of them are on watch!

      • AmazedOne1

        To be clear, from 2008-9 he was a consultant to the Office of Presidential Speechwriting in the White House. So, that immersion into the corruption in Washington easily explains any shift in focus that you’re seeing after 2009. Plus, of course, that was where he met Marc Thiessen, who became his partner in the Washington, D.C. firm Oval Office Writers which provides speechwriting and communications services for corporate executives and political figures.

        Schweizer wrote more books than you’ve listed. And, the bulk of them (not just two) were written before “Throw Them All Out.” You’ll also see that two of them critiqued liberal hypocrisy before he met Sarah. “Makers and Takers” in 2008 and “Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy” in 2006.

        Here’s the complete list of all his non-fiction books (from his own website http://peterschweizer.com/wordpress/biography/):

        Peter is the author of the book “Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets. Both Extortion” and his previous book, “Throw Them All Out” were New York Times bestsellers and were featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes

        His other non-fiction books include “Reagan’s War” (Doubleday, 2002), which the Washington Post praised as “A fascinating, well-written, useful and important look at one of the three or four most important American political leaders of the 20th century. No serious assessment of the 40th president of the United States can ignore the central importance of anti-communism in his career; after Schweizer none will.” The Los Angeles Times called it “A rousing and compelling case that Reagan’s personal and political odyssey…was central to bringing down the ‘evil empire.” He is also the co-author of “The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty” (Doubleday, 2004), which the New York Times called “Fascinating…Provides illuminating insights into the internal dynamics of the Bush family dynasty.” The New York Post declared “If you want to know as fully as can be told the story of how the Bushes rose from Midwestern obscurity to equal the records of families like the Roosevelts, the Kennedys, and the Adamses—this is the book.”

        Other non-fiction works include “Architects of Ruin” (Harper, 2009) “Victory” (Atlantic Monthly Press, 1994) , “Do As I Say (Not As I Do)” (Doubleday, 2005) and “Makers and Takers” (Doubleday, 2008).

        His academic books include “Landmark Speeches of the American Conservative Movement” (Texas A&M University Press, 2006) “The Reagan Presidency: Assessing the Man and His Legacy” (Rowman and Littlefield, 2005), and “The Fall Of The Wall: Reassessing the Causes and Consequences of the End of the Cold War” (Hoover Institution Press, 2000). He was also a contributor to “Living in the Eighties” (Oxford University Press, 2008)

        Dude, we know all about Peter.

        Thanks for the additional information for readers though.

      • Gary P Jackson

        I let you post stand, as it’s your honest opinion, but must disagree. AmazedOne1 is simply posting Peter Schweizer’s excellent resume, something we have done before. He hasn’t violated our rules and isn’t bashing Palin or her supporters, which, as you know, would have meant we wouldn’t have bothered to post his replies in the first place.

        We appreciate both of you!

  5. Nicely done. You may want to clean up the spelling and grammar.

  6. Seems your article Gary P Jackson was edited from its original for the tweets were removed with original info and you do have permission to use it in its tweet form however that was taken out and only my picture remains with no information about it . You may use it in tweet form with its info in it but not enlarged only. Thank you Sue Lynn

    • Gary P Jackson

      Hi Sue! We haven’t edited the article, nor removed the tweets. Not sure why you couldn’t see them. Will message you about stand alone photo, enlarged for clarity.

    If Sarah Palin had run in 2012 I think she would be sitting in the White House, but it is too late now.

    “There is a tide in the affairs of men,
    Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
    Omitted, all the voyage of their life
    Is bound in shallows and in miseries.”
    Shakespeare, “Julius Caesar” Act 4 Scene 3

    • Gary P Jackson

      2012 wasn’t her time. Besides dealing with death threats and a hostile GOP “leadership” her family was not behind her. Her mother and oldest son were dead set against a presidential campaign. The rest of the family was lukewarm, except for Bristol who was gung-ho!

      Governor Palin may NEVER run for political office again. That’s something most of us understand, but we also know that if she DOES run, she will be the immediate front runner and the likely nominee. No doubt she would also be the 45th President if she were to secure the GOP nomination.

      I think everyone who loves our country knows America would already be well on it’s way to recovery and prosperity if Palin was in the White House instead of Obama. We damned sure wouldn’t have the entire world on the verge of war, and potential nuclear proliferation in the entire Middle East.

      There is no such thing as a time limit on when someone can step up. But declaring someone as compelling as Palin “through” is rather shortsighted. We enjoy the Bard of Avon’s writings as much as anyone else, but they were works of fiction. Good works of fiction, but fiction indeed.

  8. David

    Wow! Gary P. Jackson, you did a very good job on the article, all except the ending. Palin / non eligible Cruz? Palin / non eligible Jindal? I don’t think so. But if she did go their, I would dump Palin in a heart beat. Only Natural Born Citizens can be a president. And to those that say they are, “prove it, by defining Native Born and Natural Born”. Don’t go by the statements of others. I want you to define them, yourself. Maybe by doing so you will learn that the two are not equal to the other.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Stop the stupid! Both Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal are NATURAL BORN CITIZENS. It pains me that so many people, in the 21st Century, are too lazy to search ACTUAL LAW.

      Ted’s MOTHER is a Natural Born United States Citizen. That’s all it takes for HIM to be Natural Born. PARENTAGE, not place of birth, is what matters. If being born overseas was a disqualifier, you’d be exempting tens of thousands of Army Brats! And before you go there, many are NOT born on a military base. Take John McCain, for instance. He was born in Panama, off base. His father was stationed there. McCain may not be QUALIFIED to be President, but he is most certainly ELIGIBLE.

      Of course, this whole birther nonsense was started by Hillary Clinton and Phillip Berg, who sued both Obama AND McCain claiming they were ineligible and not Natural Born. It was straight up bullshit!

      The courts have long ago decided Natural Born. Instead of sounding like a refugee from Prison Planet, and head of the Alex Jones fan club, read up on THE LAW:

      On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”

      http://harvardlawreview.org/2015/03/on-the-meaning-of-natural-born-citizen/

      Natural Born, BTW, simply means they were born a United States citizen, and would not have to be “naturalized” or be made a citizen after the fact. The only OTHER restrictions on Natural Born died out when our founding fathers’ generation died out. [There is a DATE SPECIFIC listed in the Constitution] This is why Arnold Schwarzenegger is NOT eligible for President. He IS a citizen , but was naturalized. Ted Cruz was BORN a United States citizen, by virtue of his mother’s citizenship. Though the family was living and working in Canada, his mother was NOT a Canadian citizen, nor had she renounced her American citizenship. Ted WAS born a dual citizen, as have been MILLIONS of Americans. This is of exactly ZERO consequence, whatsoever.

      Bobby Jindal was BORN IN BATON ROGUE, LOUISIANA, meaning there is ZERO question as to whether or not he was Natural Born.

      It’s rather idiotic that people would rather follow loons and conspiracy theories than take two minutes to read THE ACTUAL LAW!

      What’s even more idiotic, is some people would attempt to disqualify two of the very best leaders in our country. Two leaders that represent Conservatism and the American way of life better than 99% of the politicians in the country!

      You birthers are proof positive of how too little knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge at all! Wise up!

  9. Great response to David the Birther, Gary – saved me the trouble! And thanks for mentioning my supposition re timing of Schweitzer’s new book and Palin’s higher profile; maybe the “what if” will turn into a “whereas!”

    And I must doff the hat to Amazed One’s detailed bibliography of Schweitzer’s literary output! It only underscores the seriousness of his charges and the validity of his contentions (and, by extension, Sarah Palin’s observations as well). New folks coming to your blog will only benefit from all these wonderful details.

    Now, from our lips & keyboards to God’s ears, eh? With all the crap that’s going on in the Ogime (and in the corrupt Demonkrap-led cities), we all could use a MAJOR boost – the kind that only an eagerly awaited announcement from Palin could inspire!

    • Gary P Jackson

      I’ve decided I need to take these idiot birthers head on. Stay tuned for an actual article about this!

      One thing that also supports your thinking about Schweizer and Governor Palin that many overlook. AFTER working for Sarah, Peter, along with another person who was highly involved with the Governor, Stephen K Bannon, who documented her crony busting career in the film “The Undefeated” teamed up together and created the Government Accountability Institute, that routinely exposes corruption.

      On person with ties to Palin is a coincidence, two corruption fighters with ties to Palin is something else altogether!

      • Carol Cumbie

        Great job on your article. I believe that Sarah is the only chance this country has to set things straight and get rid of a lot of the garbage that Obama had done to America. Only she will really deal with the real issues of getting rid of welfare as we know it take care of those who can’t take care of themselves. Welfare robs people o0f their dignity then it become generational. Democrats have hurt poor people so much. America needs Sarah more than she will ever really know. The democrats had not bad to hold against her like other politicians but she had only honestly so they used a comedian to pretend she was Palin and used that against Palin and the worse part the media convinced the uneducated public that the fake was Palin. The media eventually need to held accountable for that. Obama lied time and time again and they covered for him. If Palin doesn’t run the USA is lost forever. We will never be able to get it back. I believe she has been chosen by God to help America.. She was the only one that the left was afraid off. Why was Obama informed there would be a big crash in the market while he was campaigning. the one that was Obama’s top people wrote a book and it was in there. He just said Obama got a call that something was going to happen within days.. Why would they call a senator unless he was connected and Soros was probably been involved.

  10. Isabel Matos

    Gary,

    I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that she will declare she’s running on September 25th the day Ronald Reagan said America was a shining city on a hill. 🙂

    Isabel

    • mahamison

      Or it might be that Ted Cruz has been pursuing her for another VPOTUS run.

      • Gary P Jackson

        Palin has all the experience. She’d definitely be on the top of the ticket.

        Palin-Cruz would be a winner, for sure.

  11. mahamison

    Think a Cruz/Palin or vice versa is the best combination of all. All the others are 2nd rate.

  12. I’d like to see Cruz as Senate Majority Leader. West as DecDef. A strong willed experienced Progressive fighter like Walker would make a great VP. It is going to take a lot of time and energy to root out the Progressive cancer that has taken over the Executive Branch and someone like him would be the one to lead the charge.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Walker is for amnesty for illegals, BIG TIME. That’s an act of treason for which anyone pushing amnesty should be hung by the neck until dead. Walker is good at going after Union Thugs™ but is only so-so on everything else. He’s a non-starter.

      I agree with you on West, he would make a great SecDef or even Secretary of State. Ted Cruz is destined to be a Supreme Court Justice at some point. He’s that good.

      If you want a serious VP candidate other than West or Cruzer, look to Bobby Jindal. He’s the real deal, as well.
