I was thrilled that I had my draft ready to post a video here on March 24th, but Sarah has been on such a roll I didn’t have time to write a proper introduction for it! So it was passed around. Then I updated it after she endorsed Joni Ernst, but since then she has endorsed three additional candidates we did not know about before. It’s a great problem! I’m so excited. Please click on the candidates’ names below the clip for their campaign information on each candidate’s race.

I’m so sick of bad news. Here’s hope you can rely on.  It was fun making it and I hope you share it with friends and those you know on Facebook, Twitter or Conservative groups you meet with. Rather than tape a message that will take forever to edit, I will write what I intended to say after the clip. Because it’s a rant. Like tough love. The brand new clip has been updated. It is awesome!

These are the primaries in chronological order. Please watch the video to see who the opponents are and more.. If you click on the candidate’s name you will be directed to their page or campaign link.  So check this out and make a plan. Do it. Then share it with us and let us know how you did. NONE of these have to be from your state. None.

Recent endorsements have had people doing crazy things. As a reminder, these elections are if national concern, not just local anymore. What happened in Iowa, for example, does NOT just affect Iowans. It affects us all. People who were supporting OTHER candidates who Sarah did not support, and who are digging their heels in a very sore-loser fashion rather than getting on board with who could be the winner are not helping us. Sarah Palin would never encourage this, neither would any responsible candidate who loses a primary or her endorsement.

There should be a gracious concession and support for the winner as any good sport would do. Everyone knows that! It is plain and simple SOUR GRAPES to ask for help for a candidate nationally, get it, and then if or when they lose, complain your candidate did not get a fair shake. I will not mention who the candidate is, but I will say this. NO one has had to endure more knocks and bruises than Sarah Palin, and yet, she is gracious, whether she wins races or not. Why? Because she thinks like a winner.  She doesn’t let one loss affect her focus on the greater goal.  She does not encourage selfishness, but rather selfless patriotism which she has exemplified in every instance I can recall. That is what makes her great. If someone doesn’t succeed, she doesn’t give up. She stays positive. She’s optimistic. And above all, she keeps edifying her vision and keeps inspiring to follow her. That is who she is.

We had two similar examples of voters choosing to stay home because of a Primary situation. The first was in Indiana in 2012. The primary was between six-term incumbent Richard Lugar, as Establishment as it gets, and Richard Mourdock, the Tea Party favorite and Sarah endorsee. Mourdock defeated Lugar. So what did Lugar’s supporters do? The Hoosiers stubbornly did not accept the primary win by Richard Mourdock and out of pride and just sheer arrogance and stupidity (there is a fine line), they stayed home to protest how unfair the race was and the Democrats won a new seat in the Senate: Joe Connelly. (We lost a Senate seat because of sore losers!)

The second example was with Todd Akin. This one was just as (if not more) infuriating. The Democrats went to the polls to vote for Akin. That is who incumbent Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill thought would be a sure loser to run against.  Sarah Steelman, by all accounts, was the clear winner among the three who were vying to win the primary, according to polls before the votes took place. After voting for Akin in the primary (by that time it was too late to change perceptions or choice), Missourians ignored a solution offered by Sarah after the primary.

Todd Akin won the primary but she made an impassioned plea for his resignation. He had no chance of winning, and she clearly explained how the left manipulated the primary. This fell on deaf ears, but I have not forgotten it.

I had never seen Sarah so fired up about what she called not putting self aside for the greater good (because she walked that walk herself) than I did on that day she appeared on Greta to complain about his thinking he could win. She even mentioned we’d start a third party if we had to she was so mad. But again, Todd ignored the advice.

As if anyone was surprised, Todd Akin makes a stupid comment during an interview and says it is rare for someone to become pregnant from rape: “The female body has ways to try and shut that whole thing down. Making political hay of that is an understatement.  The comment alienated, of course, the socially conservative phobic establishment, including Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney who called him out.

Missourians insisted they knew what was right for their state and rationalized that the Republican establishment was against Akin because he was a social conservative. They took it personally instead of seriously that he needed to withdraw from the race. They tried to make lemonade with their lemon but of course, the lemon lost. It was beyond frustrating. We warned him and Missourians it would happen.  Is Akin achy we lost?

I said “we” lost. Not just Missouri. They allowed the left’s manipulation of choosing the candidate (first), then ignored our national cries. Even Sarah Palin “supporters” would not heed her advice. He had two deadlines and chose 15 minutes of fame instead. He got a whole lot of attention from July to election day. Again, where is he?

I hope the race in IOWA (Primary June 3rd) is not a repeat of either one of the two scenarios above (more like the first than the second). Get ON BOARD Iowans! In particular, I hope the supporters who spent time working on behalf of their candidates do what needs to be done.. Reload, not retreat and host pity-parties of one. Get ON BOARD Iowans! Please support Joni Ernst, for goodness sake! So much is at stake.

THINK of the rest of us who are working hard to have a majority in the Senate and more Conservatives in the House. If you support Sarah then you support the candidates she endorses, whether your guy or gal gets her endorsement or not. She obviously selects exciting, fresh, principled candidates who are willing to stand up to the establishment, each one with a special mindset to take on the corruption that is ruining our party and our country.

The time to talk is over. It’s time to walk. We can also do both always. I will help one of these candidates.  I will stop squatting on Facebook or Twitter, and dedicate at least 2 hours of my time (at least) per week if possible, or whatever my schedule permits, and sacrifice for the cause. Nothing worth winning comes easy.  There are only so many posts, so many tweets you can send to be effective IT’S TIME TO A.C.T.

I don’t want to hear any complaints from Sarah Palin supporters who want her to RUN IN 2016 as they sit on the sidelines doing nothing to help the candidates she has endorsed. Again, it’s not just local anymore. The Rinos are being hosted and financially supported by the likes of Soros and other enemies of ours in ritzy hotels, and making not-so-hidden deals to crush us.  Let’s push back. And hard. As hard as we have ever pushed back.

It’s not sexy, fun or exciting to make calls, but they have to be made. Maybe you have money. If you don’t, try finding someone who does. If you don’t like calling, then walk to put signs on people’s yards. Or call to have one up in your yard. The least you could do is pass along this information. Conservatives are horrible at getting the message out in an efficient manner. That will have to change but we’re going to have lose a few battles to become wiser or gain experience at improving ourselves, with practice. My rant is almost over.

I am mad because after all is said and done, more is always said than done. So let’s get busy and roar like Sarah! Rrrrrrrr. No excuses. Everyone has a job to do.kristi honas

Thank you.

Bristol Palin Rips Wendy Davis to Shreds: You Can Have a Job AND Kids

bristol-palin-tripp-palin-lifes-a-tripp-lifetime

Plus, it perfectly shows that – no matter what they say – feminism is a farce. If you truly believe in strong, independent women, you’d be a conservative.

~ Bristol Palin

By Gary P Jackson

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has been in the national news for a few days after her real life story was found to be quite different than the fairy tale she had cooked up. She and her rabid supporters have blamed Attorney General Greg Abbott [our next Governor] and his people, but the problem with that is Wayne Slater, the senior political writer for the Dallas Morning News is a hard core liberal, who wrote many a hit piece on George W Bush, and has said he’s had absolutely no contact with the Abbott campaign.

To be honest, I haven’t written a word about Davis, because she has a better chance of being made Pope than ever winning elected office in Texas again! You see, we haven’t elected a democrat to statewide office since 1994, and he was the last somewhat reasonable democrat left in the state! The reason Texas has become such an economic powerhouse, is because we don’t allow democrats in power. Now we have our share of liberal Republicans, and like anywhere else, we have to watch our politicians like a hawk watches chickens, but overall, Texas is governed by Conservative principles, and it works. Like America herself, Texas was created through bloody revolution and hard won Freedom. We aren’t about to allow the fascist democrat party to gain any real power here!

Wendy Davis is a radical gun grabbing, abortionist who represents everything Texans detest.

To give you an idea what a fools errand Davis’ campaign is, way back in October, Texas Monthly Magazine a rag known for two things, it’s guide to Texas BBQ, and is FAR LEFT politics, ran a massive cover story on Greg Abbott, seated in his wheelchair, holding a shot gun, with the caption: “The Gov“!

Texas-Monthly Greg Abbott

Inside is a mostly glowing account of Abbott’s life and career, which had to pain them to publish, as well as another article that basically says IF Davis only loses by 20 points it means that somehow, magically, Texas will turn “blue” someday …. maybe.

One of the revelations about Wendy Davis’ actual life, as opposed to the fictional one she created for her campaign, is that far from being a struggling mother living in a trailer, raising a family own her own, she in fact, hooked up with an older sugar daddy, who paid her way through Harvard, after cashing out his 401K! The day after her sugar daddy made the last payment to Harvard, she left, leaving him to raise their child. Oh, and Davis’ adult child, from another marriage, also chose to live with sugar daddy, rather than Wendy!

Anyhow, after seeing Davis and her supporters attack Abbott, for being a paraplegic, among other things, Bristol Palin has a message for the “Hero of the Left“:

Dear Wendy Davis, You Can Have a Job and Kids

If you aren’t paying attention to Texas politics right now, join the crowd. But the Democrat running for governor is just so awful you have to pay attention. Wendy Davis rose to the top of everyone’s minds because her story was so compelling.

This CNN headline summed it up:

CNN: Wendy Davis: From Teen Mom to Harvard Law to Famous Filibuster

Turns out, she lied about much of her “pulling herself up by her own bootstraps” story. Actually, she found a man to marry her, pay her way through college, and then through Harvard Law School. The day after he paid the last bill, she left him. By the way, she left her kids too. She said, “it’s not a good time for me right now” to be the custodial parent.

Is everyone paying attention? This woman is the hero of the Left? A woman whose ambition and ego were so big she couldn’t have both a career and kids at the same time.

Gosh, children are sooo inconvenient, huh? I’m glad my mother didn’t put motherhood on the shelf when she was elected to City Council, then became our mayor, then Governor. Oh sorry – I mentioned my mother… Have you liberals gone into a tail spin of hate already? Did I lose you?

I know you would rather think about Wendy Davis, so let’s get back to her. She’s more your type of woman. She left her kid, husband, made it into a false “made-for-tv-movie-type-tale” and then demanded that Texans have the right to kill babies. That’s the woman you libs can really get behind!

Let me be clear. I think it’d be so nice to have a husband take care of me, and my son, so I could attend school. (Any school — let alone, Harvard!)

But the way Wendy Davis did it – by getting married and leaving him as soon as the ink dried on his last check – is downright pathetic.

Plus, it perfectly shows that – no matter what they say – feminism is a farce. If you truly believe in strong, independent women, you’d be a conservative.

I have nothing to add, no way I could improve on what Bristol has said, other than to say there is more than one “Mama Grizzly up in Alaska! God bless this kid, she is from good stock!

Texas Attorney General Threatens U.N. “Election Observers” with Arrest Governor Perry Weighs in

By Gary P Jackson

As you have likely heard by now, the Obama regime has invited a group affiliated with the United Nations to “observe” the November elections. These “observers” will be deployed in locations including Richmond (VA), Harrisburg (PA), Raleigh (NC), Austin (TX), Des Moines (Iowa), St. Paul, (Minn.), Topeka (KS), and Tallahassee (FL).

Christian Adams wrote a strong piece exposing who these “observers” are:

PJ Tatler has obtained the document detailing the places across the United States where United Nations election observers will be deployed. The document identifies the stateside targets, particular officials as well as their country of origin. To see it, click here.

For example, Aida Alzhanova of Kazakhstan will be monitoring in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Phoenix, Arizona. Elchin Musayvev from Azerbaijan will be monitoring in Concord, New Hampshire.

Kazakhstan has been criticized for a weak human rights record and a government that tightly controls speech, assembly and the free exercise of religion. Azerbaijan is worse. The government there has violently cracked down on peaceful protests and the “atmosphere for journalists is hostile. . . . The government tightened restrictions on religious groups. . . . Torture and ill-treatment in police custody continue with impunity.

More here.

This is not setting well with the American people. We are a sovereign nation, the United Nations has no right to be here as “observers” That they seem to be targeting Republican voters to “observe” smacks of voter intimidation, which is a civil rights violation. Not that the Obama regime would care, as they showed when they vacated the felony convictions of two Black Panther thugs convicted of civil rights violations after showing up armed at a Pennsylvania polling location in 2008.

These U.N. “observers” are affiliated with a group with close ties to ACORN, which has been the subject of numerous FBI investigations stemming from massive voter fraud, conducted by the democrat group. President Barack Obama was once employed by ACORN.

Don’t mess with Texas

Attorney General Greg Abbott has issued a stern warning to these people, including the threat of criminal prosecution should they enter a polling place or come within 100 feet of one.

The Attorney General’s press release: [emphasis mine]

Attorney General Abbott Tells International Election Observers to Abide by Texas Election Laws

Texas AG says Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe has no jurisdiction over Texas elections

AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott today advised the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe — a United Nations partner — that groups and individuals from outside the United States do not have jurisdiction to interfere with Texas elections.

The Attorney General’s letter comes after the international group — comprised of 56 members including EU nations and other countries such as Albania, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, the Russian Federation, Slovenia and Turkey — announced they would be sending election observers to sites throughout the United States, including Texas, on Election Day.

Text of the letter:

October 23, 2012

Ambassador Daan Everts
Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights
Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe
UI. Miodowa 10
00-251
Warsaw, Poland

Dear Ambassador Everts:

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) will reportedly dispatch election observers to the State of Texas to monitor the November 2012 general election. While it remains unclear exactly what your monitoring is intended to achieve, or precisely what tactics you will use to achieve the proposed monitoring, OSCE has stated publicly that it will visit polling stations on Election Day as part of its monitoring plan.

In April, you reportedly met with a group of organizations that have filed lawsuits challenging election integrity laws enacted by the Texas Legislature. One of those organizations, Project Vote, is closely affiliated with ACORN, which collapsed in disgrace after its role in a widespread voter-registration fraud scheme was uncovered. In September, a federal appeals court rejected Project Vote’s challenge to the State’s voter-registration regulations and allowed Texas to continue enforcing laws that were enacted to protect the integrity of the voter-registration process.

According to a letter that Project Vote and other organizations sent to you, OSCE has identified Voter ID laws as a barrier to the right to vote. That letter urged OSCE to monitor states that have taken steps to protect ballot integrity by enacting Voter ID laws. The OSCE may be entitled to its opinions about Voter ID laws, but your opinion is legally irrelevant in the United States, where the Supreme Court has already determined that Voter ID laws are constitutional.

If OSCE members want to learn more about our election processes so they can improve their own democratic systems, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the measures Texas has implemented to protect the integrity of elections. However, groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas. This State has robust election laws that were carefully crafted to protect the integrity of our election system. All persons—including persons connected with OSCE—are required to comply with these laws.

Elections and election observation are regulated by state law. The Texas Election Code governs anyone who participates in Texas elections—including representatives of the OSCE. The OSCE’s representatives are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place. It may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place’s entrance. Failure to comply with these requirements could subject the OSCE’s representatives to criminal prosecution for violating state law.

Sincerely,
Greg Abbott
Attorney General of Texas

Governor Perry also weighed in with a strong declaration:

The United States is a sovereign nation, and Texas a sovereign state. Under the United States Constitution, the states are in charge of elections. My interpretation of this is that the federal government has no authority to invite these inspectors in.

This is nothing more than an attempt by democrats to create controversy surrounding the elections, and unrest when Obama is defeated.

In 2000 our nation proved we can handle our voting procedures just fine. That election was a fiasco, and Al Gore, with the aid of the democrat controlled Florida Supreme Court attempted to steal victory from George W Bush. That attempt was stopped. If America can handle that, it can handle pretty much anything.

Like the United States, Texas has it’s own legacy of hard won Liberty and Freedom, through revolution. We don’t take kindly to those who attempt to infringe on those Liberties and Freedoms.
