Governor Sarah Palin, The Movie

By Gary P Jackson

An interesting find. Kelsey over at Barbaric Thoughts compiled a series of videos of Sarah Palin, as Governor of Alaska. These videos, 16 in all, take us from Sarah’s campaign for Governor to her farewell address. These videos were then combined on You Tube into one convenient movie.

If you are not very familiar with Sarah Palin’s time as Governor, this video will help you understand why she was the most popular Governor in the nation, and how she effectively led Alaska.

Kelsey made notes for each of her videos, and shellymicAB, the You Tuber who put this together included them, along with the portion of the movie in which each starts:

These are Kelsey’s notes from under each of the 16 vids:

The Left Attacks Sarah Palin to Distract Their Base

by Stacy Drake
Earlier this week the left went into full attack mode against Governor Palin after she revealed in a speech that her family had been given medical treatment in Canada when she was a young child. Neglecting all the facts of her story, left-wing blogs, media types, and even congressmen put out a barrage of hit pieces dedicated to painting Governor Palin as some sort of “hypocrite.” The hits were well defended in the Palin blogosphere along with other rational sites. Even a writer from Esquire felt the need to defend the governor after witnessing the lack of any damning evidence coupled with the knowledge of the geographical area in which she grew up.

Just to clarify, in case there is still any question about the story Governor Palin shared to her audience in Canada, NO she in not a hypocrite. Aaron Goldstein wrote a great piece laying out the facts of the Canadian health care system, the time frame, and also pointing out once again that Sarah Palin was five years old at that time. Aaron writes:

“Canadian Medicare was in its infancy in the mid-1960s. It was in 1966 when Canada’s Parliament passed the Medical Care Act to provide coverage for doctors’ services. Although the federal government set the standards it was left up to the provincial and territorial governments to administer the program. Not all jurisdictions joined the program right away. The last hold out would not join until 1972. That holdout was none other than the Yukon Territory.”

“Simply put, at the time Sarah Palin’s parents sought medical treatment in Canada, the Yukon Territory was not part of the Medicare program. But even if the Yukon had been integrated into Canada’s health care system, since the Heaths were U.S. residents they presumably would have been required to pay a fee for any medical services obtained in Canada. Indeed, the U.S. Embassy’s Consular Services advises Americans planning to travel to Canada, “Tourists and temporary visitors do not qualify for this health care plan and should have their own insurance to cover medical expenses.”

The fact that that so many on the right who don’t usually weigh in on all things Palin, felt the need to say something, says something about this attack. It was so over the top and devoid of historical facts and common sense. It really made those pushing it look foolish and uneducated but they persisted nonetheless.

Baseless attacks on Governor Palin and/or her family are nothing new. There was something a little different about this one however. On Monday morning I noticed that the Huffington Post version of this non-story was on the Yahoo “Most Emailed” list. By the end of the day it had worked it’s way on to the Top Story page under “Most Popular.” That made me a bit suspicious recognizing that a large scale email campaign had been pushing the story all day. When I saw DNC representatives tweeting about it and then later a congressman post an OP-ED on the subject, I knew the left-wing establishment was running with the meme at full speed.

If you look at the major headlines this week and understand the political position the democrats find themselves in, it’s easy to see why the left’s establishment would unleash this ‘weapon of mass distraction’ upon their own base. For starters, Barack Obama’s polls numbers are in the toilet. He matched his low of a 43% approval rating in a Rasmussen poll taken on Wednesday and he hit a new low for his Gallup numbers at 46% on Thursday. His signature issue, the health care bill polls even lower with the American people.

This was supposed to be the week he got his base “fired up!” Making trips to friendly districts, giving campaign style speeches. The DNC sent out numerous emails to supporters directing them to “call their representatives in support of Health Care Reform.”

Obama tried to give congress a deadline in order to expedite the process and frankly get it out of his hair… What he has left of it anyway. As of this moment, it looks like the week did not go as planned. The Democrat Congress has already burned through one of their options to move forward on the bill. Obama had lack-luster rallies, with small turn-out considering the event was free. To top it off, local democrats up for election avoided Obama’s visits like a virus.

Ace summed up the last 24 hours in regards to the health care push this way:

“The Congressional Hispanic Caucus makes a demand that already derailed healthcare reform once. The Congressional Black Caucus complains that Obama isn’t listening to them. The co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus announces that the President’s stumping across the country isn’t doing a lick of good. The Stupak Twelve announce that there will be no deal. And now the Parliamentarian makes it that much harder to get wavering Congressmen on board.

Stick a fork in it.”

I find it ironic that the left began their week trying to rally its base by attacking their most feared boogey-hockey mom on the subject of health care. Just a few short days later, the bill the president has put all of his presidential stock in, is on life support. While the left-wing base seems always in the mood to post dirty, hateful, and often untrue comments about Sarah Palin on internet forums, they have to realize that Dr. Hopenchange isn’t delivering their Utopian goods. His presidency is in serious trouble and the base he needs to get back on his feet isn’t “fired up!” They’re just easily distracted.

Fear & Loathing Sarah Palin – Hollywood Edition

by Stacy Drake
There is a reason I haven’t stepped foot into a movie theater in years… I can’t stand Hollywood.

It’s lack of creativity, it’s drug addicts, it’s moral depravity (and I’m no saint) also, it’s grand-standing preaching actors, it’s cults, it’s creepy apartments for child actors that serve the young residents drugs and alcohol. Then there’s the not-so secret, secret about how most young men obtain their movie roles. Somebody clue in “Ricky Hollywood,” considering the path he’s chosen… The whole place makes me rather nauseous. It’s a shining example of how we have fallen as a culture.

If anyone thinks that last paragraph was hyperbole, I can assure you that it’s not. I have a geographical link to L.A. as I am just south of them. Occasionally their problems leak into our community. More often, you meet people here who have lived there and share their experiences. Then there are examples like the friend of mine that I went to college with. Hollywood stole his creativity, his soul, and eventually his life. He was the most talented person in my class and a close friend in school. He’s dead now.

So why do I pick up the rock to show you the ugly underbelly of the world’s entertainment capitol? Because I am wondering where these people get off with their judgment and ridicule.

There is no question that Hollywood considers itself part of the nation’s elite. The fact that they are accepted as such should indicate the standards by which the other members of this esteemed club live by. Many on the Hollywood left like to spew their opinions, no matter what their venue. They take aim at Christianity, Jews, and basically anyone that lives by traditional, pro-American values.

It’s no wonder that they target Governor Palin. All one needs to do is visit Newsbusters or click on a Hollywood gossip site. Just about everyday there is some member of Hollywood making a snarky and/or demeaning comment about the governor.

Last week Governor Palin flew to Los Angeles to film an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and meet with network executives concerning a documentary about Alaska. She even stopped to make a very charitable donation to the Red Cross in an effort to help out earthquake victims in Haiti and Chile. Sounds harmless enough, right?

Everything I just listed that she took part in while in L.A. was trashed and mischaracterized by the Hollywood gossip rags and eventually repeated by the MSM, or LSM, whatever you prefer. The nature of the attacks from the lie spreading, Hollywood “reporters” had a certain tone to them. They all seem to paint Governor Palin, and her “entourage” as though they were some sort of redneck hillbillies. Searching for fame and fortune on “reality shows” before they loot the Silver Spoon of all of those freebies.

To top it off, their usual nemesis, actors, jumped on the band wagon. Repeating the lies (and they of all people should know they were lies) by adding their own snarky half-witted two cents to the mix. It must be their left-wing ideology that allows them to believe that Hollywood gossip-mongers are all of a sudden members of a noble profession. I guess if it’s politically convenient, why not, eh George? I don’t imagine Retracto, the Correction Alpaca has received the proper corrections yet and I’m not holding my breath.

As if Hollywood didn’t quite get the message through to Governor Palin about the depths of their hatred, Kathy Griffin flew into Alaska to make it clear. Griffin boldly made an uninvited house call to Governor Palin’s home (knowing full well that governor wasn’t there at the time) to “invite” the governor to Kathy’s little grotesque, ridicule roadshow. This ridiculous woman used Ricky Hollywood himself, aka the father of Sarah Palin’s grandchild to introduce her on stage in Anchorage. In essence, using the one link she had, via a toddler (again) to attack Governor Palin in her own neck of the woods. Disgraceful to say the least. After hearing what was said on that stage, I’ll go even further and call Kathy Griffin a sexist bigot. Yes, the term can be applied to a woman too. I understand very well that leftists think they are immune to terms like “sexist,” bigot,” and “racist” but if the shoe fits… My colleague, Ron Devito wrote more about Griffin’s spectacle here.

In no way do I believe ALL of Hollywood is rotten and that everyone there heinous. One of my closest friends, my old roommate is an actress. I have other friends that live and work there that keep their sanity somehow, while keeping a healthy distance from the madness that is so present there. It’s also interesting to note that not everybody who wrote about Governor Palin’s visit to the city, did so with malice. Although one quickly learns what defending Sarah Palin brings you in terms of love from the left.

The left and those in Hollywood may scoff at the notion that they fear Governor Palin but they never deny that they hate her. I happen to think fear is the root of all hatred. Hollywood is full of low self-esteems, hatred, and fear. Frankly, they look silly trying to demean anyone.

Sarah Palin Speaks to a Full House in Calgary

by Stacy Drake

Around twelve hundred people gathered in Calgary, Canada Saturday night to hear Governor Palin give a speech at the BMO Centre. CTV Calgary reports:

“Palin talked about energy policy, the environment, climate change, and of course, politics. ” …

“Senator Pamela Wallin, a former journalist, moderated a short question and answer session. Wallin says if Palin wants to run for president, she’s going to have to take a stand.

“It’s hard to be the critic of your party and its voice and its persona, so I think her intention right now is to see her party, the Republican Party, get back on track,” commented Wallin.

Wallin says its clear Palin has learned a lot about big politics since the U.S. election.

Wallin says Palin also seems to know more about Canada than most American politicians.”

Also of note, Danielle Smith of the Wildrose Alliance party of Alberta was also in attendance. It appears as though the speech went over pretty well with her.

Sarah Palin is Right About the Tea Party

At the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville earlier this month, Governor Palin had this to say when asked about the Republican Party’s role with the Tea Party movement:

“The Republican party would be smart to absorb as much of the Tea Party as possible. The Tea Party is the future of politics. It is shaping the way of politics in the future.”

There are some within the Tea Party movement that took exception to that, misunderstanding what she meant. She didn’t mean that the GOP should take over the Tea Party movement. She meant that the Tea Party movement should take over the GOP. At least that it should be a loud voice within the Republican Party, if not the loudest.

I totally agree. It makes so much more sense within the current political time frame, to remodel a house that sits upon a strong foundation or “planks” as the governor calls it, than to build an entirely new home all together.

Thursday night on Hannity, Governor Palin spoke in detail about this very topic. Watching the interview I had one of those ‘uh huh, this is why I support this woman’ moments. Well, it’s another reason anyway. It certainly is nice to have more than one reason to support a political figure.

Hannity asked the governor, “One issue is third party candidates tea party movement running candidates. You have said an that you think that is a bad idea can you explain in specificity, why?” Her reply:

“Well, Reagan also said there are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. A simple answer to a challenge that we face today with the Tea Party movement and I believe that I’m a part of that, because I’m such a believer in freedom, that’s what the Tea Party is all about. A simple answer to the challenges they face in not knowing kind of where we belong right now, is to essentially pick a party because we are a two-party system it is easier to reform one of the parties and get the people in the party to understand what has built in great country and what will allow for a brighter future than it is to form a new machine and new process, via a third party.

Let’s get in there and take over one of the parties! Take over the Republican Party tea partiers, and get them to see the light. They are seeing the light clear and clearer everyday. Get them to understand what built this country. Get back to the foundation of America.”

What she said struck me because it was the exact tone of a conversation I had while out to dinner with friends last Tuesday night. After a healthy anti-Obama rant the conversation moved on to the Tea Party and Governor Palin. It went as follows:

(Paraphrased to the best of my recollection)

Friend: Do you think Sarah Palin will run for president?

Me: I don’t know but I hope so.

Friend: If she runs, do you think she’ll run as a republican?

Me: Oh yeah, Governor Palin is a republican, she’s not going to change that.

Friend: What about the Tea Party? I heard some talk about a third party.

Me: That’s not a good idea.

Friend: You don’t think so?

Me: Nope. We need to use the current system. We operate in a two-party system in this country, like it or not, and splitting it into thirds puts us at a disadvantage. Plus, the GOP is already an operational machine… We should take that over and tell the big government fat-cats to shape up or show them the door.

Friend: How’s work?

She can only tolerate political discussions in five minute increments.

I am in no way a Republican Party hack. I actually just re-registered as a republican last week in anticipation of the upcoming GOP primary race here in California. I had over a year hiatus from the party but I’m not missing a fight for the soul of the California GOP for nothing. This might get ugly but it’s healthy and it’s nice to hear real conservative voices in the dialog for a change.

I left the GOP for a few reasons, but mainly because they lost their way. I think with a good cleansing and some hard work, we can get the party back to where it should have been all along. There simply is no other way to defeat the democrats and their leftist agenda. The Republican Party needs a broad base of support to go toe-to-toe with the dems on a daily basis. If we help direct the debate, the GOP will respond. We just have to keep up the pressure constantly and watch out for those within the party that poison the well. When you find someone within the party acting in lines with the big government liberals, write them, call them, yell at them, and if need be, vote them out come the next election.

Shannyn Moore: Just a Girl from Hades

by Stacy Drake

“The left’s Alinsky tactics … of isolating Sarah Palin or her poor children and beating on them, beating on them, beating on them … [won’t succeed] with the tea party movement. …You can call them racists and homophobes. But those tricks aren’t working anymore, because people are saying,
This is ridiculous.’”

“In the era of new media there’s checks and balances for the type of propaganda you serve up and if you think you can unring this bell… you’re wrong.”
Andrew Breitbart

The title of this blog is in no way a slam against Homer, Alaska. It’s merely a dig at Homer’s most hideous, self-promoting resident. Perhaps that would be a former resident, I really don’t know nor do I care enough to check.

In the quote above, Andrew Breitbart was referring to Rachel Maddow with his comments but I apply the same sentiment to all left-wing operatives that pose as any sort of ‘truth seeker.’

Anyone familiar with Governor Palin’s unhinged, ankle-biting enemies knows who Shannyn Moore is. This is an individual with little respect for honesty and certainly none for herself. She’s been hard at work since August 2008, doing nothing for a planet she purports to care for except nipping at the heels of a woman she isn’t fit to shine the shoes of. Lie after lie, phony scandal after phony scandal. I and others have referred to this sort of behavior with a Wile Coyote analogy. It make sense and it’s just as pathetic.

I’m not going to mince words here as I am growing more impatient with the left’s use of Governor Palin’s children or grandchildren to attack her. It’s been going on since the beginning of the presidential campaign but it’s only increased with time. They seem to think that is the ticket to chase her away from this nation’s political dialog. I’ve got news for them… Governor Palin is one tough lady and she is no anomaly within her family. The hack from Homer cannot do any damage with her feeble attempts to discredit Sarah Palin or her family. She has and continues to only discredit herself.

On Saturday, Ms. Moore uploaded another ‘juicy’ indictment of supposed “hypocrisy” to the left-wing rag, Huffington Post. She comes to her hypocritical conclusion after snooping her nose through the case files of a custody suit, which belong to a pair of young adults living with the consequences of their actions. Young adults with much to learn, yet their lives are splashed all over the internet and on garbage TV shows. Why? Because of politics… Plain and simple, old fashioned left-wing, gutter politics. Albeit on a whole new grotesque level. Only the left would engage their political battles upon the heads of their enemies children. The judges that allowed this to happen are primarily to blame, as I believe their ruling was based in politics as well but that’s a discussion for a whole other blog post.

Shannyn believes that the revelation that Tripp Palin, the governor’s grandson, is “an enrolled tribal member of Curyung Tribal Council” so therefore “the majority of Tripp’s health care costs are … covered by IHS and the Alaska Native Medical Center” means that Governor Palin should be FOR death panels… er, something.

Comparing all encompassing government mandates to tribal enrollment is beyond stupid. The programs set up by the federal government to assist the native population were set up a long time ago. The native population PAID for these services with blood and land. The parameters of these agreements were put into place with signed treaties. In this case that agreement was the “Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.” Tripp Palin is eligible due to his heritage to receive these benefits. Uffda has more details about IHS and Tripp Palin’s heritage here.

As someone with a healthy dose of native blood myself, I take offense to the notion that any benefit given to natives from the government as a fulfillment to past treaties is akin to “socialism.” Thereby by making all natives socialists in the eyes of Shannyn Moore and her 3000 comment posters at HuffPo. Oh, you lefties only wish.

Shannon would rather paint all American Natives and Alaska Natives as socialists than admit the fact Bristol and her family are the sole providers for Tripp. Where the hell has Levi been again? He’s been posing naked in porn magazines and using the entertainment industry’s general hatred of Governor Palin to cash in. Never giving back any of that dirty money to the son who’s life he is responsible for. I’m sure Shannon saw all of that in her little ‘fact’ finding mission but somehow omitted it once again. Levi has been too much of an asset to these people. Can’t chance losing him by admitting what an utter deadbeat father he has been.

So now I’m wondering, do military service members get the same label with this crowd? Are members of the military subject to the same “hypocrisy” label if they don’t agree with a public option? Their health care does come from the government after all. Come on Shannyn, your argument was such a wild shot that the constraints of the moral rules you pretend to follow are a bit too broad to hold much value. You end up labeling two tremendously large groups of people “hypocrites” and “socialists” that clearly do not fit into these categories.

Something tells me you’re only taking issue with Governor Palin’s grandson on this however. Yes, it looks like the left was done beating Governor Palin over the head with her son for the week and moved on to her grandson as their weapon of choice. Both children are toddlers, one with special needs by the way… Fair game to left-wing political creatures.

I thought Shannyn Moore and her keyboard pecking lefty hoard would be able to understand the difference between a benefit and mandate, but I was wrong. They see the word “health” and start chucking kitchen sinks at Sarah Palin and family. Not even stopping for a second to realize that Bristol, not Sarah enrolled young Tripp into a program which happens to be his birthright. Does Shannyn think she’s given herself a whole new set of possible phony scandals by indicting a mother for the actions of her adult children? I can’t believe we haven’t already read this article with Track as the focal point receiving his military benefits. I guess the left prefers dragging the babies through the mud over soldiers these days. It must not be as fun to beat up on our troops now that George W. Bush isn’t their commander in chief.

This is just another episode in which Shannyn Moore beclowns herself in an attempt to hurt Governor Palin. She failed tremendously as she always does. Normally I would type here that she should take a step back and try to realize that using small children is vile and evil but why bother. These people have proven over and over again that they have no morals and no decency. The depths in which they are willing to sink to trash Governor Palin knows no bounds.

The Left HATES Sarah Palin

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man’s sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.
– Martin Luther King Jr.
by Stacy Drake

Since when did hatred become acceptable to the left in this country? For the entirety of my life, I have watched them tell the public at large that they are all about “tolerance” and “acceptance.” That the right in this country were the one’s that “hated” and were full of “intolerance.” Of course, growing up in one of those awful families on the horrible right, I always knew that was a lie. However, back then I don’t recall the shear venomous hatred coming from those on the other side of the political spectrum that we see today.

The target of their hatred… Sarah Palin mainly but the Tea Party movement gets it just as bad because to the left, they are the same thing. On a personal level, Governor Palin receives words spewed at her usually only reserved for the worst of our society. Actually, I think leftist media agents give more respect and common courtesy to captured terrorists and convicted murderers, but that assessment only comes after seeing this with my own eyes.

The left likes to deny that they “hate” Sarah Palin. They say they have “contempt” for her, or as Mika Brezezinski says, “we’re not about hate.” Mika and her co-host Joe tried real hard, in between receiving White House talking points, during a recent segment of their MSNBC show, to convince themselves that it’s not “hate.” But it is… Actions or rather, reactions speak loudly… The relentlessness and blindness of their misguided smears and insults defines the emotion.

I’m not the only one who is seeing it. After posting a twelve minute vitriolic rant from Chris Matthews, Noel Sheppard from Newsbusters said:

“To be sure, any sane person would have expected the Obama-loving media to attack Palin after her highly-publicized keynote speech at Saturday’s National Tea Party convention.

But I’m not sure any of us were prepared for what we’ve witnessed in the past 48 hours.

Virtually any channel American’s turned to since Palin got off the stage in Nashville, Tennessee, with the obvious exception of Fox News has been an almost unimaginable hatefest towards the former vice presidential candidate.

It makes you wonder what country you’re living in, doesn’t it?”

Doctor Zero wrote a piece called “Misunderstanding the tea party” in which he states:

If you want to taste hatred, sample the venom directed at Sarah Palin, the only person currently capable of building a bridge between the energy of the Tea Party, and the established resources of the GOP.”

Then there is a comment I found interesting left in a nitpicking article by Robert Schlesinger in US News & World Report, by a person describing themselves as not a “Palin fan” but an outsider tired of the attacks perpetuated by the media at Governor Palin, titled “Dude, where’s your commonsense?” “Rita” says:

“I’m not a Palin fan and I think the tea partiers are still a little weird, but that said, THIS ARTICLE is downright weird, too. Seriously? An error in grammar gets a headline? Get a grip on yourself, man! Do you see how petty and sick you are becoming? Palin isn’t even an elected official right now; she is a private citizen, and you’re making headlines about grammatical errors?

This is not how you gain credibility to criticize her later, on more serious issues. For crying out loud, how is anyone supposed to take the press seriously -when there are really serious things to criticize- if they shoot their wad on this insipid stuff?

Did you write a headline when Obama said there were 57 states? Of course not, nor should you have! Did you write a headline when he said “corpse-man?” No, and you shouldn’t have.

But I guess what the folks on the right have been saying is true: all Democrats are “brilliant’ and all Republicans are “morons” when it comes to the press. Really, you should be ashamed of this; it’s stupid beyond belief. Perhaps Zuckerman can get you all into therapy and anger management classes before the ’10 elections? Because you guys won’t make it to ’12 if this is what you feel compelled to write about. Get a grip. Grow up. You are wholly owned by your hate, and it is screwing up the country.

My basic premise for writing the blog post is to call the left’s actions, words, and behavior for what it is. I don’t like writing about this, I don’t even like thinking about it. But they are being obnoxious with it and it’s impossible to ignore. They went too far this time and I think it’s going to backfire on them in a way they hadn’t anticipated. They never do seem to anticipate the backlash.

Sarah Palin herself seems to be enjoying their latest episode with a little front-handed mockery of her own. Her being a Christian and generally good natured, will spare her from sharing her detractors emotions.

Hatred has roots in fear and ignorance. Bigotry comes from a sense of superiority. It’s a safe assumption that the left fear Sarah Palin, you hear it all the time. Fear forces them to react the way they do, where a level-headed debate would never cause what we see from them today. Talking to any of them for more than a minute reveals their ignorance. I swear these people cannot tell you one actual fact about Governor Palin. Instead, they have filled their heads with lies. As far as the left’s superiority complex goes.. I’ll let Glenn Beck address that:
