Sarah Palin RIPS Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace: No More Anonymous Sources

CruzPalinHugWeb

By Gary P Jackson

Earlier this morning an angry Sarah Palin tweeted Fox News Sunday’s after he used “anonymous sources” sent by GOP Elites™ to attack Ted Cruz:

According to host Chris Wallace, Establishment Republicans™ are so worked up that Cruz is leading the defund Obamacare fight he immediately got unsolicited questions and opposition research on Cruz from “top Republicans” before Cruz’s appearance.

This is the same sort of hateful tactics they used on Governor Palin, when she started standing with the American people in opposition to Big Government

On Saturday Governor Palin published an op-ed at Breitbart News where she told Senator Cruz that she had his back, along with the American people. She told Cruz to “stay strong” in the face of the attacks from the despicable GOP Elites. She went so far as to suggest the two compare “shiv marks some day!

We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.

Welcome to our world, Ted. The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees). We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.

Governor Palin also talked about the “gutless and rudderless” permanent political class in D.C.:

Those of us who hang in there supporting a major political party with our energy, time, and contributions would like to believe that that party would praise principled conservatives like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for following through on campaign promises. We’d like to believe that the GOP establishment would applaud the way these bold leaders have rallied the grassroots to their cause. But, no, such praise would require a commensurate level of guts and leadership, and the permanent political class in D.C. is nothing if not gutless and rudderless.

It’s obvious the Vichy GOP don’t really care about the American people, just themselves and their own little power bases. BOTH political parties are morally bankrupt and against the American people. There are some good men and women in the Republican party, but the leadership is no different than the anti-American democrats who run that party.

Sarah Palin always says it’s nothing a good old fashioned election won’t cure. Well, we have one coming November 2014. It’s time to mobilize and organize NOW. Make sure that you help elect Conservatives coast to coast. Before we can save our nation, we have to clean out the roaches from the republican party, then, and only then, can we fight the evils Obama and his democrat party is inflicting on the American people!

Video & Transcript: Sarah Palin On Fox News Sunday

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin was a guest on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. This is a strong, no-nonsense appearence. Wallace asks tough question and Sarah gives straight-forward answers. After the interview Wallace remarked:

Chris Wallace on Palin Interview: First Time I Ever Thought ‘This Women Is A Serious Candidate

After interviewing Sarah Palin, Chris Wallace talked about her with his panel of guests and revealed that he was very impressed with her appearance. Unlike previous times when he interviewed her, Wallace noticed “this wasn’t just ‘you betcha’ – she was pretty sharp on the issues.

Wallace was eager to see if anyone else agreed with his review of Palin’s interview:

I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought ‘this woman is a serious – if she decides to run – candidate for President. And a serious possibility to be President.’”

Yeah, thanks Captain Obvious Conservative Americans have known this for a long, long time.

What’s remarkable about Wallace’s enthusiasm is it comes in the middle of a serious attempt by Fox News to scuttle any attempt by Sarah Palin to run for President. Fearing Sarah will do to the GOP establishment in Washington what she did to the corrupt loser GOP’ers in Alaska, Fox has actually upped the ante. So this from Wallace says a lot.

Below is a transcript of the interview:

The following is a rush transcript of the June 5, 2011 edition of “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace.” This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

CHRIS WALLACE, ANCHOR: I’m Chris Wallace.

The economy struggles and nation’s recovery is in jeopardy.

(MUSIC)

WALLACE: With anemic job growth, a weak housing market and gridlock on Capitol Hill over our debt, what needs to be done to America back on track? We’ll ask a potential presidential candidate who just completed the first leg of her One Nation bus tour. Sarah Palin in an exclusive “2012: One on One” interview.

Also, Romney makes official. But how strong is the front runner? We’ll ask our Sunday panel where the Republican field stands now.

And our power players of the week, with words of wisdom to the class of 2011.

All right now on “Fox News Sunday.

And hello again from Fox News in Washington.

While the front-runner for the presidential Republican nomination got in the race this week, most of the focus was on a potential candidate who hasn’t made her intentions known yet. We continue our “2012: One-on-One” interview series with former Governor Sarah Palin who joins us from Arizona.

And, Governor, welcome back to “Fox News Sunday.”

FORMER GOV. SARAH PALIN, R-ALASKA: Thank you so much, Chris.

WALLACE: Let’s start with the economy and bad news on Friday — just 54,000 jobs were added in May, the lowest number in eight months. Unemployment rose to 9.1 percent. When you add that to poor numbers on growth, on housing, on manufacturing, where are we in this recovery?

PALIN: And you add, too, the fact that this quantitative easing, one and two, hasn’t worked and we’re talking about Q.E. 3 already and the devalued dollar is an addition to this problem.

You know, President Obama tried to explain to the public the other day that this is just a bump in the road. But, you know, you try telling that bump in the road analogy to those families out there trying to keep their home, trying to keep their businesses afloat, trying to fund their child’s college education and just fuel up their own vehicle.

And the people will tell you it’s not a bump in the road. We’ve hit a brick wall.

So, we know what the problem is. You just run through some of the stats that explained what the problem is. Now, we really need to start talking about the solutions. We need to start ramping, grow industry, production in the private sector, or this sinking ship that we are on will soon be drowning in debt and in additional economic problems. We need to start talking about the solutions.

WALLACE: Well, I’m going to get to the solutions in a minute. But President Obama and his advisors note that, in fact, the trend lines have been good. The economy, the private sector has added 1 million jobs in the last few months. Let’s take look at what said.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: We are facing some tough headwinds. Lately, it’s high gas prices, the earthquake in Japan, and unease about European fiscal situation. That’s going to happen from time to time. There are going to be bumps on the road to recovery.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WALLACE: And while May was certainly a bad month, the president says that the trend line, the general trend of the economy has been positive.

PALIN: The month of April was tough, too. There were jobs added to the marketplace, Chris, but remember, that was McDonald’s out there with their big push to hire 50,000-some people. So, I think there were some numbers skewed last month, too.

The point is this administration has got to be honest and candid with the American public. Bottom is their plan for bigger government, more federal control over our private sector, more regulations and burdensome mandates on the people and our businesses, it’s not working and we do need to shift gears and change course. And it’s very noble of President Obama to want to stay at the helm and maybe go down with this sinking ship.

But I prefer, many Americans prefer, that we start plugging the hole, that we start powering the build pump and start getting rid of this unsustainable debt that is sinking our ship. We don’t have to go the way of the Titanic and there are things that have to be put in place right now before this ship does sink. We don’t have to keep going down the road that we’re going on today.

WALLACE: Well, let’s talk about the debate because what Republicans are saying about what to do next — Republicans are sounding a familiar refrain: cut spending, cut taxes, cut regulation. Democrats say, promote exports, targeted investment, and the big spending cuts, would actually draw (ph) more people out of work.

Question, what would President Palin do? Specifically, to boost the economy.

PALIN: I would go the opposite direction of what these Democrats and President Obama have already tried in his two-and-a-half years. They’re already tried the nearly $1 trillion stimulus package. And we still have 9.1 percent unemployment. We still have about a 17 percent underemployment rate. And we are incurring more and more debt — as we speak, Chris. So, it’s just not working.

What President Palin would do is cut the federal budget, making sure that we’re crowding out private sector investment. We will cut that spending. We have no choice. We’re going broke. We’re going bankrupt.

We have absolutely no choice. And cut the burdensome regulations and mandates that really quash an entrepreneurial spirit in America and do burden our businesses, and create uncertainly. And that’s why we kind of stuck in neutral now, why businesses can’t expand.

I would taxes. The second highest corporate tax rate in the world we are burden with. No, we need to cut that to incentivize businesses to stay here on our shores, in America. And not outsource all these jobs and opportunities.

And then one of the most important things, Chris, that we have to engage is unleashing our domestic energy production opportunities. It does come down to “drill, baby, drill,” in addition to an “all of the above” energy policy that really is non-existent in the Obama administration.

Energy is the key to prosperity, to security. And until we start tapping our domestic, conventional and alternative sources to energy, we’re never going to get there.

WALLACE: You talked about the fact we’re going broke. And I think everybody would agree with that. Let’s turn to the issue of the national debt, because you say you don’t believe Treasury Secretary Geithner when he talks about this drop-dead date of catastrophe if will to raise the debt limit by August 2nd. But, Governor, this week, Moody’s said that they are going to lower our credit rating for our debt unless we raise the limit, the debt limit, by August 2nd, also they said they may lower our rating if we fail to come up with a serious reduction plan.

So, the question is, wouldn’t that be a financial disaster?

PALIN: I don’t believe Tim Geithner as cries wolf for the fourth time now, telling us that there is a drop-dead date and crisis will ensue, and economic woes will befall us even greater than they already are if we don’t increase the debt limit. He’s told us this a couple of times now. In fact, I believe it’s four times now where there’s a —

WALLACE: What about Moody’s saying that what they’re saying?

PALIN: Moody’s message is very powerful and that should be the warning the American public to make sure that are electing congressmen and women who hold the purse strings in this nation to quit incurring the debt. We rake in $58 billion a day, our federal government, via payroll taxes and or other revenue sources. If we prioritize and took that $58 billion a day and service our debt, we don’t have to raise that debt ceiling.

We can make sure that we are funding the debt service and our highest priorities first. And other things are going to have to wait, Chris. Again, we have no choice. It’s common sense.

WALLACE: I just want to make sure I’m clear. So, you’re saying no deal for deficit reduction. Don’t raise the debt limit.

PALIN: I have — I know that the debt ceiling will be raised, whether I want it to be raised or not. There is a majority in Congress, both sides of the aisle, that will raise the debt ceiling. If I were in Congress, though, I would be a “no” vote to raising that debt ceiling. I would send that message that it is failed leadership in the White House and with our elected officials when they have allowed to us to get this breaking point, if you will, that Moody’s is warning about.

So, I vote no on the debt ceiling. It’s just going to allow the big spenders another tool to continue to increase debt.

So, I believe that the debt ceiling will be raised. But for those who are already committed to voting for it, they better get something out of it for “We the people.” They better get a balanced budget. They better get commensurate cuts in federal spending that equate to that increase in debt, because they’re going to keep incurring more and more.

How about people like Senator Begich, a Democrat from Alaska. He better get ANWR in this bill, opening another domestic source of energy up there in Alaska when he votes yes for increasing the debt ceiling.

WALLACE: Let me —

PALIN: These folks better get something out of it.

WALLACE: All right. Let me move you along to another subject. Do you support Congressman Paul Ryan’s plan to overhaul Medicare?

PALIN: I do. And I have from day one. This will save Medicare. It will save the safety net of health care coverage that our elders in this country need. I am very frustrated with Democrats and with the media trying to spin Paul Ryan’s efforts here in trying to save and shore up Medicare, because what’s being spun, Chris, this misperception, this misconception that he’s trying to do away with Medicare.

Now, what’s going to do away with Medicare is if we keep going down the road that we’re on. But Obama evidently wants us to go down because we will have a bankrupt Medicare system. There will be no safety net unless we shore it up. That’s what Paul Ryan is attempting to do.

WALLACE: But, Governor, what about the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that says if you go ahead with the Ryan plan — and I want point out, as you well know — that it doesn’t start for 10 years. It doesn’t affect anyone who is over 55 years of age.

WALLACE: That if you go with that plan, which would turn a fee- for-service plan into a voucher system, according to the Congressional Budget Office, it means that going forward, seniors are going to have to pay more out of pocket for their health care.

PALIN: Well, if we forward, the way that we’re going today, as I say, we will be bankrupt. We will have no Medicare system at all. And that’s where, again, those in the White House, they need to be honest with the American public and let them know what we’re facing here in these very soon to coming years.

So, there are — there is a need for reform, Chris. We have no choice. There has to be changes.

We have to remember, too, that Paul Ryan’s plan — and I support it because I don’t see anything better, more sensible, more fiscally sound out there. So, I do support it. His plan, too, remember, as you point out, it doesn’t affect anyone who is 55 and older today. So, that’s another misconception that is out there perpetuated by the media and by Democrats, making it sound like our esteemed elders today are going to be harmed. They won’t be harmed by this plan.

WALLACE: You also address U.S. foreign policy this week in terms of the budget. You said we should consider a quicker drawdown of forces in Afghanistan. And then you said this, “With Afghanistan, with Iraq, too, and now with Libya, the of the cost of the war, the cost of the war, has got to be considered.”

So, the question is: would you pull some of our U.S. forces out of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya because can’t afford to keep them there?

PALIN: Well, I like to talk about each one of those areas specifically, because there are conditions that differ in each area.

Take Afghanistan, conditions certainly have changed even in this last week or two when President Karzai comes out and acts like the host nation to perhaps want us there, or NATO. NATO, as we help lead NATO, we are still concerned about civilians and making sure that civilian casualties are not part of any kind of strategy. And yet, that kind of get thrown back in our face and there — it sounds like a message being sent to America and to NATO today by President Karzai that perhaps we’re not wanted there. After everything that we have done in Afghanistan, after the billions and billions of dollars that we spent there to help rebuild their nation and to squash the terrorist cell so that we’re protected on our own shores. So, conditions have changed there and we need to reevaluate the timeline that we have for ourselves being in there.

Now, I have great faith in Petraeus and he — his folks with boots on the ground and on the front lines, I trust that Petraeus will know of this timeline that makes most sense for America’s interest to be met in Afghanistan.

Now in Libya, conditions there, we have to consider what Congress has passed via this resolution this last week is a good thing. It’s a good message to President Obama. He has not been clear about what our mission is in Libya. And that’s what the resolution is asking.

We are going to be spending billions and billions there, too, with sort of a nebulous, murky mission that’s not really being articulated and that’s not fair to the American public. We need to make sure that we know what we are there for.

And if it’s explained very concisely and very sensibly, then won’t need to be in Libya, which is turning into a civil war there — we don’t need to be —

WALLACE: Just real quickly, back to Afghanistan, I want to move on to some other things. But, really, quickly on Afghanistan, are you saying that the combination of Karzai criticizing and trying to limit our mission and the cost factor, in our U.S. budget, our debt, that we should reconsider our commitment, how long and how and what a footprint we in Afghanistan?

PALIN: We’re putting faith in General Petraeus as he lines out timeline for the American public to understand. Yes, those two factors, Chris, that you mention have got to be considered and reevaluated. “A,” the host nation ability to understand what it is that we are trying to do for them and with them in their nation; and the cost of war.

Three wars that we’re going engaged in today and our country nearing bankruptcy, we have to rethink everything that we’re doing with foreign aid and with foreign intervention. We have got to make sure that it’ America’s interest first being met in each one of these nations. And if there is an opportunity to, say, in Afghanistan with General Petraeus’ guidance, to back out a little bit perhaps sooner than we have because of these conditions that have changed most recently, then I would support that.

WALLACE: Let’s get to your bus trip and to 2012. And I’m going to ask you the question everybody has asked me when they heard you’re going to be on the program. What are you up to?

PALIN: Oh, man, it seems like I answered this question a million times in the last week and folks still, I guess, aren’t understanding, at least reporters don’t seem to be understanding it. Even your own Shep Smith there on Fox News, he announced the other day that I was on some publicity tour.

I wanted to say, Shep, take it one step further. What am I publicizing on this tour? I’m publicizing Americana and our foundation and how important it is that we learn about our past and our challenges and victories throughout American history, so that we can successfully proceed forward — very heady days, rough waters ahead of us, Chris. We need to make sure that we have a strong grasp of our foundational victories so we can move forward.

That’s what we’re highlighting on this bus tour. It’s not a campaign tour.

WALLACE: I got to ask you real quickly about that, though. You realized that you messed up about Paul Revere, don’t you?

PALIN: You know what? I didn’t mess up about Paul Revere. Here is what Paul Revere did. He warned the Americans that the British were coming, the British were coming, and they were going to try take our arms and we got to make sure that we were protecting ourselves and shoring up all of ammunitions and our firearms so that they couldn’t take it.

But remember that the British had already been there, many soldiers for seven years in that area. And part of Paul Revere’s ride — and it wasn’t just one ride — he was a courier, he was a messenger. Part of his ride was to warn the British that we’re already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms. You are not going to beat our own well- armed persons, individual, private militia that we have. He did warn the British.

And in a shout-out, gotcha type of question that was asked of me, I answered candidly. And I know my American history.

WALLACE: Well, I got tell you, I wasn’t sure entirely before I ask you that question. So, I went to Google to make sure that I knew as much. And we both know now.

But, look, everybody is asking. And I take you at your word that you wanted to celebrate America’s history. But, obviously, you’re a player in the 2012 campaign. Has the response that you got over the last week, has it changed your mind at all as you make the deliberation as to whether or not to run?

PALIN: It hasn’t changed my mind as to whether I want to be a candidate or not, Chris. But the response that I received along the trail, my family and I, from “We the people,” from people saying, please, somebody has got to be honest with the public and let Americans understand where our country is headed. The socialized big government takeover type, federal government policies that are burdening our economy and really installing any potential for growth and recovery in America, we’ve got to stop that agenda.

Well, who is leading that agenda? President Obama is. We have got to turn things around in 2012. Whether it’s me — throwing my name in the hat or just supporting the right candidate, the response has been great confirmation of the need for real positive change in this country.

WALLACE: But — and you’ve always been really straight with me. After this week, and obviously, you got a lot of attention, there was a big response. Does it make you lean more towards running?

PALIN: I tell you, the response — I haven’t interpreted it as being about me, about being me as a candidate or a potential candidate. It’s been about the message, Chris. Truly, it has. It’s been about the desire of the American public to get back to our foundational beliefs, our values, free market enterprise, freedoms for Americans to make our decision instead of elite faraway government making the decisions for us.

So, it’s not about me. It’s about this message.

(CROSSTALK)

WALLACE: So, on a spectrum where zero is an absolutely not running and 100 percent is “I’m in the race,” where are you now? Give a number.

Bill O’Reilly Cranky That Governor Palin Ended His Interruptions

By Stacy Drake

This evening, Bill O’Reilly took a shot at Governor Palin on his show regarding the last interview he conducted with her. If you recall, the governor rightly put an end to O’Reilly’s annoying habit of interruption, by reminding him that he was indeed interrupting her. As you can imagine, Bill’s ego suffered a bit of a bruising from the governor’s action.

On tonight’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill spoke with Chis Wallace to make himself feel better about it all. He compared his behavior as a media personality, with that of Chris Wallace, stating that it is mandatory for serious journalists like themselves to constantly interrupt their guests. I’m not sure how Wallace managed to allow himself to be used by O’Reilly in this manner considering that he is not the one with the horrible reputation of being a rude host. Not through persistent interruptions anyway… No, Bill O’Reilly is the one with the bad reputation and he knows it. Obviously Governor Palin struck a nerve (and an over-sized ego) when she called him out last week, otherwise he wouldn’t have done this segment tonight.

The funny thing is that if Bill actually paid any attention to the answers his guests give, he would have realized that Governor Palin DID answer his question. The show’s transcript states:

O’REILLY: Some people want mandatory retirement age where you would have to take it raised up to about 67. Are you for that? Do you want to raise that mandatory age to 67 retirement?PALIN: Everything — everything is going to have to change for those who are enrolled in the program now and will be enrolled in the program now. But we do not change the pension benefit…

O’REILLY: I agree. The people who…

PALIN: …of those who are receiving it now and that what’s people care…

O’REILLY: …brought in and the people who need it.

PALIN: And I really apologize that up here in Alaska we have the four second delay. So it’s — it’s not an easy exchange…

O’REILLY: OK.

She said “everything” and the word “everything,” in this instance, encompasses the topic being discussed, as well as other things that were not mentioned. Yes, plus more, if you will.

Most media personalities have to interrupt their quests at some point. However, Bill O’Reilly interrupts his guests every time they try to answer any of his questions. It’s habitual and it’s annoying.

Mark Levin also had a few choice words for the “8 PMer,” after the show.

Also, just in case you ever wondered what it was like to work with Bill O’Reilly, here’s a glimpse.

Sarah Palin: Lightning In A Bottle

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.

–Mark Twain

I’ve been on this earth a half a century. I’ve experienced a lot of history first hand, and studied history even further, and in all of my time I have never experienced anything or anyone like Sarah Palin.

To say that Sarah Palin is a dynamic figure is a gross understatement. Sarah is a woman who commands attention, and commands respect. Oh yeah, she has her detractors, everyone does, but they are only making themselves more and more irrelevant with each passing day. These Palin deniers might try and tell themselves that Sarah Palin doesn’t matter, but that simply doesn’t make it so!

The radical left and the media (yes, yes..I know, same thing) have tried to set up a narrative that Sarah doesn’t matter, that she is irrelevant. And yet, they follow her every word. It has become quite comical to watch the Palin deniers twist themselves into knots every time she says or does something.

Take this past weekend. Sarah Palin was everywhere. On a weekend that featured not only the Super Bowl but the kick off to the NASCAR season, Sarah was the big story, the one getting all of the attention.

Let’s take a look at her itinerary starting on Friday. As we reported, Sarah made a stop in Salina, Kansas to speak to the local Chamber of Commerce. This was reportedly the largest ever such gathering for a Chamber meeting.

Here is the audio from Sarah’s speech via Kevin Wright and C4P:

Wait a minute, hold the phone! That sure didn’t sound like some airhead speaking, did it? I guess the Palin deniers didn’t bother to listen to this speech. I know they certainly don’t want you to listen!

What I heard was an experienced Chief Executive talking about success, and how to duplicate it. Now I know that Sarah doesn’t have slick marketing slogans or tired generalizations like “hope and change,” but I think we can “settle” for some real solid ideas, and knowledge, can’t we?

From Salina, Sarah went on to Nashville where she headlined the first annual National Tea Party Convention.

To say that Sarah Palin knocked it out of the park with her rousing speech would be like saying that Shakespear fellow “wrote some good plays!” Sarah was remarkable. Strong, confident, and on target.

While Sarah spoke on her signature issues: fiscal responsibility, and energy independence, but she spent the largest portion of her speech talking about national security. Something President Obama, a total failure in this arena, avoided like the plague in his State of the Union Speech.

The left tries to portray her as someone with no knowledge of foreign affairs. They don’t dare tell people that it was Sarah’s strong answers on foreign policy and national defense that led John McCain to choose her of 24 other candidates as his running mate!

Sarah speaks very strongly on issues of national security, and when it comes to fighting terrorism, takes a page out of Reagan’s policy on fighting evil, simply stating her position: “We win, they lose.”

Sarah, was introduced to the large crowd by media mogul Andrew Breitbart. She received multiple standing ovations and continuous loud applause from the audience. Her speech which totally eclipsed the President’s State of the Union speech, was followed by a question and answer session.

Video courtesy of Palin TV:

After the speech, the corrupt, Obamacentric media didn’t know what to do or say. They simply couldn’t refute her speech, or her facts. They absolutely couldn’t deny her strong support from those in attendance.

Now generally, the left tries to tell everyone that Sarah is dumb, or that her speeches “ramble” and are “dis-jointed and incoherent” but America has come to realize the left is just projecting, and if anything, they are describing their leader, Barack Obama, who can’t give a coherent, substantial speech to save his life. In fact, as Obama’s popularity has slipped, his speeches have become more and more erratic and incoherent.

What we witnessed in Nashville was a powerful woman who knows exactly what she is trying to do, and is doing it well. It was incredibly fitting that Sarah gave this speech on the 99th birthday of one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald Reagan.. Sarah was nothing short of Reaganesque in her delivery. She was solid, and engaging. Sarah laid out her vison for America, an America that is prosperous, safe, and free.

So, unable to refute Sarah, unable to compete in the marketplace of ideas, the media, which is basically a propaganda arm for Obama, Inc., went on to become a full parody of itself.

In what looked more like a Saturday Night Live skit poking fun of the media, the press, decided that they would focus on the fact that Sarah had some words written on her hand!

This reached high levels of absurdity very quickly, with slow motion replays and all. Frankly, it was simply delicious. It proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the left is done. They literally have nothing left. They have been defeated soundly by this housewife and mother from Wasilla, Alaska!

While the left was tying itself in knots with their mental gymnastics over Sarah’s scriblings, Sarah was on the move. Taped on Saturday, an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday was next:

To me, this may have been Sarah’s best interview. Part of the credit goes to Chris Wallace. The guy asks the tough questions. No one could accuse this of being a “soft ball” interview. Poised and confident, this is the kind of interview that makes Sarah shine. This interview was the most watched in FNS history, and beat out all of the other Sunday shows in ratings.

Sarah answered a number of questions that are on the people’s minds, and gave a pretty solid answer about the question of will she or won’t she, regarding 2012.

Of course, there was no time for Sarah to relax and take it all in. Sunday afternoon Sarah was in the Great State of Texas to rally supporters for Governor Rick Perry. It was a large vocal crowd that met her there. Sarah is incredibly popular here in Texas. She represents the strong, independent spirit of the Lone Star State very well. With that in mind, Governor Perry bestowed on her one of the greatest honors a person can achieve, and named Sarah an honorary Texan!

Video of her speech:

Solid, red meat stuff from Sarah Palin!

Oh and the hand thing? Sarah showed the media just how little they, and their criticism matter to her:

As we wrote yesterday, this is why we know Sarah will be our next President. This woman is fearless, and unlike most pols, absolutely doesn’t give a damn what the media thinks of her!

Last June Sarah was talking about the fact that her opposition wanted her to just sit down and shut up. Her response was “Politically, if I die, I die, but I won’t sit down, and I won’t shut up!” This has turned into a battle cry for all patriots, as Sarah has inspired millions to not “sit down and shut up” and to get out there and let their voices be heard, to make a real difference!

If Sarah Palin never does anything else in her life, she will have had a positive influence on America by just inspiring so many to answer the call to action, and to stand up and hold our corrupt government accountable. Sarah has been one of those who have sparked a real revolution in this country, a revolution that is seeing those corrupt government officials fall, one by one, and real patriots take their places.

This was an incredible weekend for Sarah Palin. Sarah established herself solidly as the true leader in America. There is absolutely no doubt now, that if she chooses that path, the presidency in 2012 is hers. There is simply no other leader in America that has the ability and the courage to bring America back from the brink of disaster.

Rich Galen’s Mullings column over the weekend reinforces something that has been true since the day Sarah Palin burst onto the national scene. If you remember, during the 2008 campaign, once Sarah was introduced to the world, the Obama campaign rarely ran against, or mentioned John McCain. They were always running against Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin was considered, for their purposes, Obama’s equal.

As Rich points out, Sarah Palin is still Obama’s equal:

* Here’s how you know, if you are the President of the United States, that things are going in the wrong direction.

You have scheduled a speech to the Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington, DC.

It snows about 20 inches in Washington, DC weakening your arguments for cap-and-trade legislation

A car spins into the press van traveling with your motorcade

You do the speech and generate headlines like this one from the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram:

Obama Seeks to Rally Glum Dems Amid GOP Challenges

* Meanwhile Sarah Palin’s keynote speech to the Tea Party meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, is covered like your State of the Union Address had been two weeks earlier, leading the chattering class to compare your appearance with that of Gov. Palin.

* Palin’s speech generated headlines like this in the Nashville Tennessean:

Palin: Tea Party Movement is a Call to Action

* Here’s a basic rule of political counter-punching: You want your lowest ranking person in a public fight with your opponent’s highest ranking person – preferably your opponent.

* For example, if you are managing the campaign for the guy running against an incumbent for Congress, you want to have the kid who does the morning clips in a public argument with the Congressman.

* That diminishes the Congressman and enhances the clips kid.

* Over weekend the losing candidate for Vice President was, for all intents and purposes, treated as the political equal of the President of the United States.

Now as far as we are concerned, Sarah Palin is far superior to Barack Obama in any and every category, but in the context, Sarah Palin is indeed the equal of the President of the United States.

Sarah commands our attention and respect because she is working hard. Sarah is working hard to take the commonsense conservative message to everyone in the country. With that in mind, Monday morning, Sarah was still in Houston and appeared as a motivational speaker at a business conference headlined by some of our nation’s strongest leaders that included herself, Rudy Giuliani, Lou Holtz, Zig Ziegler, Colin Powell, and Microsoft President Rick Belluzzo.

Once that was over, Sarah was on her way to Redding, California where she had two sold out appearances at the Sierra Cascade Loggers Conference. You can read more here.

Oh, and written on the palm of her hand: “Loggers Rock!
