The Best Video Of Sarah Palin’s Speech In Pella, Iowa

By Gary P Jackson

There are several amateur videos of Sarah Palin’s incredible heart felt speech after the screening of The Undefeated in Pella, Iowa on Tuesday night, but by far, this video by michellefron is the best quality.

I’m again stuck by the power Sarah brings to a speech. No notes, no teleprompters, just speaking from the heart.

It’s also notable that she lets people know right away this movie isn’t about her, but her entire team, as well as the American spirit, and what can be accomplished with a little hard work.

This is what real a real leader looks like. Someone with the right stuff.

There is also a great article about the videographer’s experience at the event here. Make sure you check it out.

Exclusive Youth For Palin Ground Report From Pella, Iowa And The World Premier of “The Undefeated”

 

Youth for Palin administrator Austin Harris with Sarah Palin in Pella, Iowa

Austin Harris, the 15 year-old administrator and Iowa coordinator for Youth For Palin was at last night’s world premier of The Undefeated in Pella, Iowa and along with Youth For Palin co-founder Elizabeth Hawkes gives us a report of the event from their perspective:

By Austin Harris and Elizabeth Hawkes

In early May of this year, I discovered that a movie was being produced about Governor Palin and dismissed it immediately as another attack video.

It is reasonable to consider liberal movie producers deviously conjuring up a project to undermine Governor Palin as so many in the LSM have done in the past. “They’re just up to their old tricks again!”, I thought.

Indeed, who is not aware of those well crafted tricks dedicated to misrepresenting Governor Palin as diva, bad person, selfish mother, and just another self absorbed narcissist in it for the money? But to my surprise and relief, I soon discovered that there was actually someone that understood Governor Palin and he was, shockingly, a conservative movie producer from Hollywood, Stephen Bannon.

The day of the premiere was filled with excitement. At 4 o’clock in the afternoon we finally arrived in the beautiful town of Pella, Iowa. The journey took us over an hour to drive but, in hindsight, it was well worth every minute as my anticipation of seeing Governor Palin reached unparalleled levels.

Every place I looked there was the media and the “common folk” of Iowa surrounding the Pella Opera House eagerly waiting for just a glimpse of Governor Palin.

As I pondered that not even President Obama could attract so many fans, I maneuvered my way to my seat and sighed with relief, “I was finally and actually here!”.

Larry Peterson welcomed people to Pella by giving us a lesson on the rich history of the Pella Opera House. We then sang the Battle Hymn of the Republic and This Is My Country. What transpired next was better than any Hollywood studio stage editing or director’s cut. Halfway through our second rendition of these patriotic songs, Governor Palin walk into the theater. All around me, cheering supporters were taking pictures as Governor Palin took her seat, not in an isolated roped off area by herself but right in the middle of the crowd with everyday, average Americans.

The Mayor of Pella, Darrel Dobernecker, welcomed Governor Palin to Pella by cleverly telling her, “You like to rock the boat and it is better to rock the boat then to sink the ship.”

Next, Stephen Bannon introduced the movie, we prayed and appropriately ended with the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Undefeated kicks off with cinematography of Governor Palin on the stage with John McCain announcing her as Vice President. Then the film spends a few minutes showing pictures and video’s of Governor Palin during her childhood years. It talks about Exxon oil spill and why people love Alaska. It provides a well choreographed perspective on why she ran for Mayor and Governor. It describes, in detail, why Governor Palin did these things, how she did it, and how the people benefited from it in Alaska. It talks about a wide variety of issues that go from oil to corruption to budgets to resigning and what she did after she resigned.

The documentary depicts her as a dedicated and hard working Mayor and Governor that never lost her perspective of being an everyday, average American.

Sarah Palin didn’t care if the corruption was in her party or not; she took it on where she saw it and won. The film correctly portrayed her as a person that really cared about the people and not just about herself.

The crowd in the theater was very energized and clapped and cheered numerous times during the movie.

If Governor Palin does decide to run for President in the 2012 primary, this movie will really help her with those voters that are still undecided.

The Undefeated is a huge game changer.

My level of support, respect, and enthusiasm is much higher then it was before, and trust me, it was very high before.

If you have not seen this movie please do. It will change your perspective on Palin dramatically.

Among other things, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisors who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin’s time in office.

Here’s the official news release from Victory Film Group and ARC Entertainment:

ARC ENTERTAINMENT & VICTORY FILMS TO PRESENT THE WORLD PREMIER OF THE UNDEFEATED AT PELLA OPERA HOUSE IN PELLA, IOWA.

Documentary about Gov. Sarah Palin will be shown at 111-year-old historic Midwestern landmark

SANTA MONICA – Victory Film Group (www.victoryfilmgroup.com) and ARC Entertainment announced today the premier of The Undefeated at the Pella Opera House in Pella, Iowa on Tuesday June 28, at 5 p.m. Central.

The Undefeated, which was written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by Bannon and Victory Film Group co-founder Glenn Bracken Evans and Dan Fleuette, chronicles Sarah Palin’s rise from obscurity to national prominence. ARC Entertainment is the film’s worldwide distributor.

The community of Pella encapsulates what Iowa and the Heartland are all about. Steve Bannon certainly found a location that has the ‘Iowa-ness’ he was searching for,” stated Craig Robinson, editor-in-chief of TheIowaRepublican.com.

Built in 1900, the Pella Opera House is presently a non-profit founded by area leaders committed to bringing the finest performances to the venue. During the preceding 111 years, the Pella Opera House building has served many functions including headquarters for the Women’s Federated Club, as well as showing the country’s first silent movies at the beginning of the motion picture industry.

Larry Peterson, Chairman of the Pella Opera House stated, “The building is the heart and center of the hard-working family-oriented people in our community. For over 100 years it has served as a symbol that has exemplified American values and continuation of our city’s Dutch heritage.

Mr. Peterson continued, “The Pella Opera House is excited to be selected as the venue for the premier showing of the film about Governor Sarah Palin. As the premier performance center for the region, the Pella Opera House has traditionally followed its mission of presenting quality entertainment. From children’s theater performances, holiday and Branson-style variety shows to cutting edge concerts and musical events, the patrons of the Pella Opera House consistently praise the Opera House for its creative presentation and support of the values that are important to so many people of this region.

The Undefeated features leading prominent political commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce and Andrew Breitbart as well as conservative activists Kate Obenshein, Sonnie Johnson and Jamie Radtke. Additionally, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisors who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin’s tenure.

The film begins its national rollout exclusively in AMC Theatres in 10 cities the week of July 15th. The film will debut in Dallas, Denver, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis, and Kansas City, with plans to take it nationwide in additional markets thereafter.

Scott Conroy of RealClearPolitics called the film a “sweeping epic;” Jan Crawford of CBS News said, “Sarah Palin is either running for President or she should be: That’s the takeaway from ‘The Undefeated,’ a new movie about Palin’s life and leadership set to hit theaters next month;” Michael Falcone of ABC News noted, “The film’s re-telling of her accomplishments as mayor of Wasilla and Governor of Alaska portrays her as a courageous and unconventional figure willing to take on the political establishment — even in those early years. … She eschews the ‘smoke filled rooms’ of deal-making and comes across as a fighter for the people;” and Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller wrote, “If enough people see the film it could be a real game-changer for Palin’s presidential chances.”

Trevor Drinkwater, CEO of ARC Entertainment, added, “We are pleased to present this highly anticipated controversial film and couldn’t imagine a more appropriate setting that captures the spirit and messaging of the film.”

Co-founder of Victory Film Group Glenn Bracken Evans stated, “We are very grateful to the city of Pella and the Opera House for providing the perfect venue for our film.
