Sarah Palin Talks Energy, Hammers Obama

By Gary P Jackson

Sarah Palin talked with Fox Business News’ Eric Bolling Monday night. This is a very strong interview, and they talk about a lot of issues. First up is energy, and the Keystone pipeline from Canada. As you would expect, Sarah goes after Obama like no one else can, and rips him for not wanting this deal that would create a lot of high paying jobs, and give us a more secure energy supply.

They also talk about Tim Tebow, and his strong faith, and how some are mocking it, as well as the yearly war on Christmas.

At the end Eric, like others have, talks about whether or not she might just reconsider things. He notes that he gets a lot of viewer email asking him to ask her to rethink not running. He also gets a lot of mail asking him about teaming up with her on a debate. She says she’d love to do an energy debate with him.

When asked about the possibility of her jumping in, even after Iowa, she says something different than her usual response, and remarks it’s not to late for SOMEONE to jump in.

Sarah is on record saying she’s not happy with the current field.

My only comment to readers is don’t go off the deep end. This isn’t necessarily a sign she’s reconsidering a run herself. Of course, it’s also not a sign she isn’t.

For now, take it at face value, that she, in her role as a pundit, is merely saying she thinks someone could possibly jump in.

If she does jump in, what little research I have done tells me she would be a factor. It would change everything, and with the early state rules, and the fact the filing dates in 2/3 of the states have not passed, and Iowa has no filing deadline, anything is possible.

Grayson Uses Palin’s Name to Beclown Himself… Again

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.)

By Stacy Drake

I had just started to compile information for another ‘leftist uses phony “Nazi” meme against someone they disagree with’ post when I saw a story from the Hill titled “Rep. Grayson: Palin trying to make ‘fascism fashionable,’ ‘gets away with it‘” It reads:

Outspoken Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) criticized Sarah Palin, Chief Justice John Roberts and the Tea Party on Bill Maher’s HBO show.

Grayson compared tea partiers to a character in the movie “Nemo” who can’t remember anything that happened more than a year ago. He said former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is trying to make “fascism fashionable.” And he mocked Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy for being out of touch with technology.

[…]

The Florida lawmaker, who is one of the GOP’s top targets this fall, disputed characterizations by Matthew Continetti of right-leaning Weekly Standard that the media has been unfair to Palin.

“I think she’s gotten a pass from the media,” Grayson said, adding, “She’s trying to make fascism fashionable and she gets away with it.”

Grayson claimed that Palin “dropped out of college four times,” but both Continetti and Maher pointed out that the former vice presidential candidate changed colleges four times.

Yeah, don’t let facts get in the way of your politically unhinged freak-show, Alan. When Bill Maher won’t even let you get away with your leftist lies, you know you’re in trouble.

There are several themes developing here. First, Alan Grayson uses political vitriol in the same way a spoiled, mentally challenged child uses screaming to get attention. This is the guy who stood on the floor of the “People’s House” and stated that “Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.” When asked to apologize, Grayson used the opportunity to make another unhinged comment in regards to the health care debate saying “I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.” Classy representative you’ve got there, Florida.

Grayson also has a habit of invoking Governor Palin’s name into his loopy, heated rhetoric. In March of this year the Democrat issued a very unstatesmen like press release, saying a host of outlandish and bigoted things, such as:

“Palin, the former half-term Governor, current-nothing and future-even-less, charmed the all-Republican audience with her folksy folksiness and her homespun homespunnery. Atypically, Palin was wearing clothes that she had paid for herself. At the end of the event, she shared her recipe for mooseface pie.”

Is there any wonder why Washington is a mess? The statement continued:

“Grayson said that the Alaskan chillbilly was welcome to return to Central Florida anytime, as long as she brings lots of money with her, and spends it. “I look forward to an honest debate with Governor Palin on the issues, in the unlikely event that she ever learns anything about them”

[…]

“Scientists are studying Sarah Palin’s travel between Alaska and Florida carefully. They hope to learn more about the flight patterns of that elusive migratory species, the wild Alaskan dingbat.”

At what point do we as a nation, demand that our elected officials are drug tested in the same manner our mailmen are? He was clearly playing to the left’s base and that should tell you everything you need to know about the left’s base. Juvenile and despicable, not to mention derogatory to Alaska’s residents.

Stating that Governor Palin was trying to make “fascism fashionable,” is just one example I have seen recently where a leftist throws the ‘Nazi’ terminology at a Conservative or a Christian, as a weapon. Last Friday a sports radio host in Boston said this to his audience about the new Quarterback for the Denver Broncos and known pro-life advocate, Tim Tebow’s NFL draft party:

“It looked like some kind of Nazi rally. . . . So lily-white is what I’m trying to say. Yeah, Stepford Wives.”

But that’s not racist or anything. Nothing to see here folks, move along…

Tim Tebow has been on the receiving end of hatred for a long time. He grew up a missionary, he had a successful college football career, has always been a well spoken, good looking, talented athlete, with an unwavering devotion to his faith. Let’s face it… The left thinks it’s perfectly acceptable to HATE certain people. Tim Tebow, Sarah Palin, and anyone at who attends a Tea Party protest fit into that category.

I got into a long debate with a leftist on Saturday about their usage of the words “Nazi” or “Fascism” against their political opponents. He had used me as a ploy to rant to other leftists that the Tea Party was evidence that ‘fascism’ was on the horizon. Not from the Obama administration but from Conservatives. I stayed very civil and tried to explain to this individual the history of fascism and it’s true definition. I laid out a ton of examples as to why American Conservatives are the polar opposite of the Nazi’s. I spent a long time trying to explain why it is irresponsible and morally wrong for them to keep using those references.

After reading my historically accurate argument, the lefty proceeded to try to change the meaning of what he had said. He attempted to scoot around his diatribe saying that he only meant that the Tea Party resembles an uprising like the Nazi’s did in 1919. I won’t go into his left-wing nuance any further because it will honestly give a you headache. I will however say that by not taking responsibility for their rhetoric, the left are cowards of the lowest order. They have no trouble launching verbal ‘hand grenades’ then running from their comments when it is pointed out that they are factually dishonest.

These tactics from the left are increasing and I think that before the November election they will have anyone who disagrees with their agenda or ideology pegged as mass-murdering ‘Soldiers for Satan.’ Expect the worst of the worst to spew from the likes of Alan Grayson, the left-wing blogosphere, and certain members of the press. This is all designed to taint the minds of Independents and scare away Conservative opposition. It won’t work because it’s fairly obvious to most thinking people what is going on here. This is modern American left-wing, gutter politics and it shines a great big light onto their character.

Sarah Palin Calls Out National Organization For Women Over Their Opposition To Pro-Life Super Bowl Ad

This is pretty typical. Progressives sell their souls to the cause, nothing else matters, so it really should be of no surprise whatsoever that a group claiming to support women sells out.

For the record, I am pro-life. I find it hard to justify abortion n any circumstance, but I’ll listen to opposing arguments. However, I don’t run a group that claims to speak for all women. If NOW was all it claimed to be, it would support all women, especially those who are pro-life.

Unfortunately, NOW is progressive first, pro woman second.

As Sarah Palin recently reminded us, the women of the original feminist movement were pro-life. These were strong women, women who could conquer all. As she wrote:

The pro-life movement is pro-women, and it empowers women with the message that we are strong enough and smart enough to be able to pursue education, vocations and avocations while giving life to a child. This movement is largely run by women. In fact, many of the earliest leaders of the women’s rights movement were pro-life – women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul, the author of the original Equal Rights Amendment in 1923, who said, “Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.”

Today, more and more young women agree with these feminist foremothers, for they know in their hearts that the culture of life empowers women by offering them real choices. Unfortunately, rather than portray this positive message, the media often focuses on divisions among Americans on this issue.

With that in mind Sarah tweeted this yesterday: “What’s N.O.W. thinking? Censoring a pro-women/pro-child Super Bowl ad? Unbelievable. Pls see my FB post on this“:

Women’s Rights Groups: Your Double Standard is Showing

Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.

What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.

NOW is looking at the pro-life issue backwards. Women should be reminded that they are strong enough and smart enough to make decisions that allow for career and educational opportunities while still giving their babies a chance at life. In my own home, my daughter Bristol has also been challenged by pro-abortion “women’s rights” groups who don’t agree with her decision to have her baby, nor do they like the abstinence message which she articulated as her personal commitment. NOW could gain ground and credibility with everyday Americans, thus allowing their pro-women message to be heard by more than just their ardent supporters, if they made wiser decisions regarding which battles to pick. They should call attention to and embrace the Tebow’s message, instead of covertly and overtly disrespecting what Mrs. Tebow, Bristol, and millions of other women have chosen to do (in less than ideal circumstances).

My message to these groups who are inexplicably offended by a pro-woman, pro-child, pro-life message airing during the Super Bowl: please concentrate on empowering women, help with efforts to prevent unexpected pregnancies, stay consistent with your message that for too long women have been made to feel like sex objects in our “modern” culture and that we can expect better in 2010. But don’t let your double standard glare so vividly as to undo some of the good to which you could contribute.

And CBS: just do the right thing. Don’t cave. Have the backbone to run the ad.

To the Tebows: thank you. America is listening. We appreciate you.

– Sarah Palin

This is one of the things that really makes Sarah Palin such a special person in today’s political environment. Sarah is unabashedly pro-life and embraces the culture of life with great zeal. Never afraid to stand up for those innocents unable to stand up for themselves.

We are to be judged by how we treat the least among us. In my mind that’s those with special-needs, our elderly, it’s our soon-to-be-born babies. The heart of our nation shines brightly when we take care of those who are less fortunate, who have more challenges than the rest of us.

–Sarah Palin

It never ceases to amaze me how these so-called “pro-choice” groups think. They push for a “woman’s right to choose” but you damn well better choose their way, or else. Isn’t progressivism great!

Here is the original press release from Focus on the Family announcing their advertisement featuring Tim and his mother, Pam:

Focus on the Family to Air Super Bowl Ad

Commercial will feature Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam

Colorado Springs, Colo (Friday, Jan. 15, 2010) – Focus on the Family will broadcast the first Super Bowl ad in its history February 7 during CBS Sports’ coverage of the game at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida.

The 30-second spot from the international family-help organization will feature college football star Tim Tebow and his mother, Pam. They will share a personal story centered on the theme of “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.”

Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, said the chance to partner with the Tebows and lift up a meaningful message about family and life comes at the right moment in the culture, because “families need to be inspired.”

Tim and Pam share our respect for life and our passion for helping families thrive,” Daly said. “They live what we see every day – that the desire for family closeness is written on the hearts of every generation. Focus on the Family is about nurturing that desire and strengthening families by empowering them with the tools they need to live lives rooted in morals and values.”

Daly added that all the funds to air the ad came from a handful of “very generous and committed friends” who donated specifically to support the project. No money from the ministry’s general fund was used.

The Tebows said they agreed to appear in the commercial because the issue of life is one they feel very strongly about.

Daly chuckled at some of the “will-they-or-won’t-they?” speculation in the media about whether Focus would indeed create a Super Bowl ad.

Now that the ad has been shot, we’re excited to tell people it’s coming, because the Tebows’ story is such an important one for our culture to hear,” he said. “You won’t want to miss it.”

For more information, call Gary Schneeberger @ 719-548-5853 or e-mail press@family.org

Maybe someday the National Organization for Women will re-think their position on all of this and join the culture of life with the rest of civilized society, and stop backing the barbaric practices of the culture of death brought about by the progressive movement.
