Gov. Palin Reminds Americans About Unpatriotic Comments from 2008… LSM Freaks Out

By Stacy Drake

The left-wing media was freaking out Friday over some comments Governor Palin made during a speech she gave at the Liberty and Freedom Foundation forum in San Jose on Thursday. She said:

“You know, when I hear people say, or had said during the campaign that they’ve never been proud of America, haven’t they met anybody in uniform yet?”

I am happy to report that the media is paying attention to Governor Palin’s speeches (pay close attention, LSM you may just learn something). However, I think it’s funny that the press came ferociously to Michelle Obama’s defense after Governor Palin’s comments. Although Andrea Mitchell cited, in her lunatic brand of reporting, which is nothing more than spouting off delusional left-wing sentiment, that Governor Palin was “taking a direct shot at the First Lady.” Actually, Governor Palin never mentioned Michelle Obama by name. Somebody has a complex.

In all honesty, everybody in America knows who Governor Palin was talking about. That’s because what FLOTUS let slip during the pre-FLOTUS campaign days was so disgraceful, she rightly caught lots of flak for it.

Andrea Mitchell, still doing the bidding of the Obama administration, said today that Governor Palin “was taking the First Lady’s comments completely out of context!” How so, Andrea? She said what she said. Here’s the video of Michelle’s remarks during the campaign in proper context:

She talks about being “proud for the first time” in her “adult lifetime” of her country. She said it wasn’t just because “Barack has done well,” but because people were “hungry for change.” Meaning, people were going to vote for “change” otherwise known as her husband. She then goes on to talk about not feeling so alone in her “disappointment” in the country. What a patriot! How could Governor Palin get that so wrong?

Alas, she didn’t get it wrong at all. I happen to have received my college degree in the Arts. I obtained said degree in Southern California, so believe me when I tell you that I have been around my fair share of radical left-wingers. I know how they think and I know the way they talk. Like Michelle Obama, they generally have little nice to say about the United States of America and they surely aren’t proud of their country.

Like Governor Palin, I carried the patriotism my parents instilled in me, into my adulthood. Anytime I see a service member, or tall metropolitan buildings, a vast farm, or even the beauty of our deserts, I have a sense of pride in this nation. I read the founding documents and look at the legacy of liberty in which America was built, and I cannot even fathom living in a different country. I, like Governor Palin, have always been extremely proud of my country.

After Andrea Mitchell spun the details of Michelle Obama’s words, she then snidely asked the question “was smart to take on the popular First Lady.” I understand Michelle Obama is popular at Spanish resorts, but I’m not exactly predicting a revolt against the Governor for reminding Americans about the First Lady’s heart. The media on the other hand… Well, once again they showed their true colors while “reporting” on this Friday. They have no trouble with the thought that Michelle Obama may not be someone who dearly loves this country, as a First Lady should. No, they just don’t want Americans to think that is the case.

Why I Am Now Using Bing Instead Of Google

We are all creatures of habit, and certainly known to take the path of least resistance when it comes to such mundane things as searching the vast internet for information. Most folks use Google, because it’s big, and well, we know it.

There are other search engines out there, but most are rather limited, so the old habit remained.

There are a lot of reasons why many of us get frustrated with Google. They have been known to play games with information, and of course, push their agenda by what one sees first when they search information, images, or video. This is especially frustrating if you are a conservative looking for information.

As aggravating as the Marxist-progressive bias of Google is, the real slap in the face is how they showcase their site on holidays. Google might do something special for May Day, May 1st, the celebration of communism, or maybe Cinco de Mayo, the May 5th celebration, cooked up by a Mexican beer company as a promotion, but other more important and significant events are downplayed, or ignored.

Personally, I was one of those cats who just griped about it all, and went on, because it was just easier to do that. I figured it wasn’t a war worth fighting, then I found this article on June 6th, the anniversary of the D-Day invasion, on the website Jessica’s Well:

Check out their respective pages on June 6. Bing’s home page (above) shows an aerial photograph of the American Cemetery located in Normandy.

Google? Nothing. Move along. Nothing to see here. Nothing of note ever happened on June 6th.

Actually this is just one of the reasons. The main reason is that I just don’t trust Google. Google makes money for one reason and one reason only: They know a bunch of stuff about you and the more they know the more they get paid. If you could break the old Stasi into two separate operating entities, one that ran the informants and the other that did the interrogations and disappearances, Google could run the former.

But not the latter….because their corporate motto is “Don’t be evil“, you see.

This was all it took to get me off high center about Google.

BTW, Google has been running a World Cup Soccer theme, because soccer players have done so much for your Freedom and Liberty, or something.

I have to report that I starting using Bing on that day, June 6th, and have not regretted it one bit. Bing is easier to use, especially if you’d like a preview of the text. Searching videos is the absolute best experience ever.

So far I haven’t found myself wanting for information in any way, though I will admit Bing is a tad light on images. I would think that will change in time, as more people start using the service.

Anyhow, this is why I have switched to Bing, and suggest others give it a try as well. I think you’ll be happy you did.

“America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag” A New Book By Sarah Palin

News about Sarah Palin’s much anticipated new book has come, as Sarah’s publisher: HarperCollins, announced on Tuesday the November 23rd release day for “America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag.”

From Fox News:

Sarah Palin’s new book has a title, “America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag,” and a release date, Nov. 23, publisher HarperCollins announced Tuesday.

The Alaska ex-governor and former GOP vice presidential candidate, whose memoir “Going Rogue” has sold more than 2 million copies, has been working on a tribute to American values.

It will include “selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her,” according to HarperCollins, along with “the nation’s founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies.

The book is inspired not only by her “strong belief in the importance of family, faith, and patriotism,” but by some of the people she met last year while promoting “Going Rogue.” Palin skipped major cities such as Seattle and Los Angeles, traditional stops on most author tours, and instead focused on smaller communities more receptive to her conservative message.

The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family,” the statement from HarperCollins reads.

HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said Palin will likely tour for “America By Heart,” but added that details were still being arranged. The book will have a first printing of 1 million copies — the initial run for “Going Rogue” was 1.5 million — and a list price of $25.99.

As with “Going Rogue,” Palin will have a collaborator, but there are “no specifics to announce yet,” Andreadis said. Conservative author Lynn Vincent worked with Palin on her memoir.

While the e-book for “Going Rogue” came out several weeks after the hardcover, the digital edition for “America By Heart” will be available at the same time.

Before the release last month of Apple’s iPad, HarperCollins and other publishers had worried that the $9.99 charged for best-sellers on Amazon.com’s Kindle reader was too low and would hurt hardcover sales. Publishers have more control over pricing under the sales model negotiated with Apple, with some e-books costing $12.99 to $14.99 when first released.

As with Going Rogue, we look forward to reading Sarah’s latest. It’s been hinted that this book will also contain a fair amount of policy, though for the discerning reader, Going Rogue has been thought of as one of the best books on policy written in quite some time.

Obviously this will spark even more anticipation of an announcement for a 2012 presidential run, especially with this timing. Late 2010 early 2011 can be devoted to the book tour, much like the late 2009, early 2010 was set aside to promote Going Rogue. After that, we anticipate a full on run toward the Oval Office.

We look forward to seeing American exceptionalism, faith, and patriotism through the eyes of Sarah Palin. Sarah is a woman of strong character who dearly loves her country, and is inspired by the American experience, as are we.

Online book sellers Borders and Amazon have wasted no time, and are already taking pre-orders for America By Heart. You can visit their website here and here.
