Support Governor Palin At SarahPAC

Popular Palin: 120+ Political Campaign & 950+ Speaking Engagement Invitations

Monday, August 31, 2009 0 Responses

Mike Allen, at the Politico, reported that Governor Palin has received 1,070 invitation since her resignation as the governor of Alaska. Pretty impressive and, of course, the MSM will naturally do its best to ignore this news.


This is an important piece of news because the MSM so enjoys attacking Gov Palin at every opportunity. For Example, it was reported that Gov Palin was invited to and will attend the GOP Senate Fundraiser, The Simi Valley Republican Women’s Club and The Change Point Church in Anchorage. Each of these organizations were so enthusiastic about having Gov Palin attend their event they prematurely jump-the-gun and announced that she has been invited and has confirmed. Texas For Sarah Palin also reported that some organizations knowingly lie about inviting Gov Palin simply for self promotion. The latest news about Gov Palin traveling to Asia in September is only news until Gov Palin publicly confirms this event. The MSM naturally omits these facts and rushes to attack Gov with an amazing amount of exuberance. Gov Palin seems to be a victim of her own success and the MSM is, again, an embarrassment.


The MSM, including Gov Palin inspired sites such as HuffingtonPost.com and Dailykos.com (each dedicate 25% of there websites to Gov Palin), love inventing negative news about Palin when ever possible. Any attack on Gov Palin is really a sad attempt to protect the disaster and embarrassment that Obama is. So if you feel the need to respond to a disrespectful comment or an attack on Gov Palin simply reply with any number of facts demonstrating Obama is a disaster.


Gov Palin has also signed with the speakers’ bureau Washington Speakers Bureau, which also represents President George and The First Lady, Bob Woodward, Katie Couric, Alan Greenspan, Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani. Gov Palin is also close to finishing her book, which is due out this spring from HarperCollins.

Governor Palin Wins the Day, 9th Circuit Court Oks Her Push For Offshore Drilling

Saturday, August 29, 2009 2 Responses

Anchorage, AK - Governor Palin has been fighting for more and more offshore drilling since she was appointed to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission in 2002. The 9th Circuit Court had no choice but to side with her. The ultra liberal or activist court also had a decision overturned by the US Supreme Court, in the Governor's favor, back on July, 22. Governor Palin posted this article on her Facebook. page:


9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling allows Beaufort drilling:

A ruling Thursday by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has cleared the way for Shell Oil to resume its exploration and development in the Beaufort Sea.

The court's ruling says the Bush administration was correct in not demanding a new environmental impact assessment for the company's drilling leases.

The suit filed by the North Slope Borough and the Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission alleged that the Minerals Management Service was supposed to have included additional environmental work in its studies before a lease sale took place in 2007.

The court rejected those claims.

The decision allows Shell Oil to continue exploration and development of off-shore oil prospects in the Beaufort, but it does not affect Shell's leases in the Chukchi Sea, which are tied up with a separate lawsuit by environmental groups and the village of Point Hope.

Shell spokesperson Curtis Smith said the company hoped to start exploratory drilling next year with a somewhat smaller operation than originally planned.

"We're hopeful that we can drill in 2010," Smith said. "Our 2010 plan of exploration was crafted as a direct result of feedback from North Slope stakeholders that we were moving too fast, that it was too much and too soon, and the new plan reflects that."

"It's one year, it's one rig, "It's half the number of wells we previously planned to drill."

While the ruling does remove an obstacle, there remains some work to be done, Smith said.

"The MMS is still reviewing our plan of exploration and we still have some major permits that need to be achieved," he said. "It's a small victory, but there's a long way to go."

In March, the court vacated an opinion issued in November of 2008, which had halted Shell's plans.

Gov. Sean Parnell lauded the Thursday decision, saying that developing the Outer Continental Shelf oil is critical to Alaska's long-term economic future.

Thank You Gov Palin: Obama’s Health Care Adviser, Ezekiel Emanuel, Under Scrutiny

Thursday, August 27, 2009 1 Response

Last week, Governor Palin posted these comments about Obama’s Chief Health Care Advisor Ezekiel Emanuel:


As I noted in my statement last week, nationalized health care inevitably leads to rationing. There is simply no way to cover everyone and hold down the costs at the same time. The rationing system proposed by one of President Obama’s key health care advisers is particularly disturbing. I’m speaking of the “Complete Lives System” advocated by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the president’s chief of staff. President Obama has not yet stated any opposition to the “Complete Lives System,” a system which, if enacted, would refuse to allocate medical resources to the elderly, the infirm, and the disabled who have less economic potential. Why the silence from the president on this aspect of his nationalization of health care? Does he agree with the “Complete Lives System”? If not, then why is Dr. Emanuel his policy advisor? What is he advising the president on? I just learned that Dr. Emanuel is now distancing himself from his own work and claiming that his “thinking has evolved” on the question of rationing care to benefit the strong and deny the weak. How convenient that he disavowed his own work only after the nature of his scholarship was revealed to the public at large.


We are now seeing a further look into his scary past and views. The New York Post wrote a piece and Betsy McCaughey of The WSJ, wrote a very good investigative piece entitled Obama’s Health Rationer-in-Chief:


Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, health adviser to President Barack Obama, is under scrutiny. As a bioethicist, he has written extensively about who should get medical care, who should decide, and whose life is worth saving. Dr. Emanuel is part of a school of thought that redefines a physician’s duty, insisting that it includes working for the greater good of society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. Many physicians find that view dangerous, and most Americans are likely to agree.

The health bills being pushed through Congress put important decisions in the hands of presidential appointees like Dr. Emanuel. They will decide what insurance plans cover, how much leeway your doctor will have, and what seniors get under Medicare. Dr. Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of the Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. He clearly will play a role guiding the White House's health initiative.

Dr. Emanuel says that health reform will not be pain free, and that the usual recommendations for cutting medical spending (often urged by the president) are mere window dressing. As he wrote in the Feb. 27, 2008, issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA): "Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality of care are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change."

True reform, he argues, must include redefining doctors' ethical obligations. In the June 18, 2008, issue of JAMA, Dr. Emanuel blames the Hippocratic Oath for the "overuse" of medical care: "Medical school education and post graduate education emphasize thoroughness," he writes. "This culture is further reinforced by a unique understanding of professional obligations, specifically the Hippocratic Oath's admonition to 'use my power to help the sick to the best of my ability and judgment' as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of cost or effect on others."


As a Governor Palin supporter, I am amazed that when she speaks about any topic the world is listening (and begging for more). I would love to know Glenn Beck's ratings after Gov Palin made the gusty announcement to watch his show. Obama's response was to hold several fake town-halls, several news conferences, hundreds of editorials defending ØbamaCare and many politicians, on both sides, attempt to debunk her ‘Death Panels’ but to no avail. Øbama has now called out the unions in an attempt to quiet the American people. What is so astonishing is Øbama has truly become the enemy of the people. All because of post on Facebook by Governor Palin. Impressive to say the least.

AS A DOCTOR, I FIND THIS DEEPLY TROUBLING AND QUITE AN EYE OPENER. A doctors priority should always be what is best for the patient. This evil person can only have the mind of an elitist which naturally coincides with a socialist or communist. These type of individuals (Øbama & cronies) believe the masses (all of us) deserve government rationed health care, simple jobs, no political voice and a maximum of 2 children. The political elites, Obama and his the inner circle, must have a life privileged so they can properly rule over us. SCARY!

Palin Wins One For The Gipper

Monday, August 24, 2009 0 Responses

Patrick S. Adams, from his Townhall.com Blog, posted a very piece putting liberals in there place and describing how Ronald Reagan would be very proud:


If it had been written from the Governor's desk, an ethics violation would have been filed because she used her office to advance her national agenda. If it had been said during a Katie Couric interview, it would have been another "I can see Russia from my house" joke. If it had been said at a campaign rally, it would have been glossed over or not reported. But because she said it from her Facebook page, bypassing all of the processes described above, it resonated and it resonated loudly. In using the quotationed words "death panel," Sarah Palin not only "won one for the good guys" as Seah Hannity so eloquently complimented her, she won one for the Gipper as well, and turned the tide on the media loving Obama-ites in the process.


Ronald Reagan must be looking down from Heaven with a smile holding the LP record he recorded in early 1961 on Socialized Medicine. That was the first time the "death panel maneuver" was used to circumvent the press and go directly to the people on the issue of health care reform. Sarah Palin knows Ronald Reagan. She carries his presence and his philosophy in her servant's heart. And the liberals hate it.


Before the mainstream media had a chance to rebut the "death panel" statement, Sarah Palin's Facebook page note was rocketing across the Internet, being linked to every computer in America via Twitter, TeamSarah.org and Conservatives4Palin.com. Suddenly, conservative columnists, radio show hosts and TV show hosts were all over it before CNN, the Washington Post and MSNBC could have it fact checked incorrectly without the use of the quotation marks.


Sarah Palin has defeated the Kobayashi Maru of politics. She resigned the office of Governor to "affect positive change.” So far, it's working.


"When the leader of the free world is complaining about a posting on the former governor of Alaska’s Facebook page, he’s got problems," Chris Stirewalt writes in The Washington Examiner piece "The Thrill is Gone for Obama and the Media."


Is there schadenfreude in knowing that the same media that short circuited Palin's vice presidential run is now the same media that is frustrated by the people not getting their message on health care reform? Or is just that the people aren't listening to the mainstream media anymore?


Howard Kurtz complains in The Washington Post that despite all the media coverage, the Obama position is not winning:


  • Perhaps journalists are no more trusted than politicians these days, or many folks never saw the knockdown stories. But this was a stunning illustration of the traditional media's impotence.

  • Still, it was a stretch for White House officials, who have a huge megaphone, to blame media coverage for the sinking popularity of health reform. It was equally odd for Gibbs to tell reporters that stories about Obama backing away from a government-run health plan were "entirely contrived by you guys" -- this after Gibbs and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had said on Sunday morning shows that such a plan was not an essential part of Obama's proposal.

  • For all the sound and fury, news organizations have labored to explain the intricacies of the competing blueprints. "NBC Nightly News" ran a piece examining how Obama's public health-insurance option would work. ABC's "World News " did a fact check on the end-of-life provision in the bill. "CBS Evening News" highlighted problems with the current system by interviewing some of the 1,500 people waiting at a free makeshift clinic in Los Angeles. Time ran a cover story on health care, titled "Paging Dr. Obama." And major newspapers have been filled with articles examining the nitty-gritty details. Those who say the media haven't dug into the details aren't looking very hard.
  • But the healthy dose of coverage has largely failed to dispel many of the half-truths and exaggerations surrounding the debate. Even so, news organizations were slow to diagnose the depth of public unease about the unwieldy legislation. For the moment, the story, like the process itself, remains a muddle.


No, Mr. Kurtz, the American people understand the story. There is no muddle about popular opposition to the measure. The only muddle is in the brains of elitists and the mainstream media who get thrills up their legs when Obama speaks.

The key to a Republican comeback lies in the moment that the American people realize the media has been lying to them. That moment may have just arrived as citizens across the country read the health care bill and tweet links to its harshest provisions. The American people are doing just what Sarah Palin is doing. They are bypassing the media and communicating with each other via social networks.

The opposition to Obamacare is found in a grassroots that is now growing into a full blown natural turf lawn. Those in the media and the Obama Administration want to "cut that lawn." They mistook it for Astroturf. But Astroturf can't grow beyond its artificial capacity. Natural turf will overtake the land if its not "kept under control."

Our nation's founders would call this patch of grass "We the People."

The mainstream media and the propaganda arm of the Obama Administration have just met their death panel: the American people.

Obama The Coward: Like Reagan Palin Would Send In The F-22s

Sunday, August 23, 2009 0 Responses

Most of us are outraged over the Scots freeing this muslim terrorist and allowing him to go home to a heros welcome. I certainly am. Why would Obama allow this and why would the Europeans do this?


Over the past several decades we have seen Europe becoming more and more a "social democracy," with horrible immigration and welfare policies. The WSJ wrote a very telling piece on the state of Europe, why Europe wants Obama to fail and how they become so weak-kneed:


Europe has been riding on our economic coattails and sheltering under our defense umbrella since the end of World War II nearly 65 years ago. Our markets have been open to European goods, and our strong currency and relative affluence -- the product of our much-maligned free-market economic model -- have provided Europe with a ready buyer. While providing a huge market for Europe's goods, we've also substantially relieved the European powers of the burden of defending themselves. By assuming Europe's defense the U.S. has, in effect, allowed it the luxury of extremely expensive and ultimately unsustainable social-welfarism. They have become left-wing wimps and, to no surprise, freeing a convicted terrorists and mass murderer to appease whom ever fits right in.


The bests lesson is history. All we have to do is look back a few decades to a very similar situation or to a time when we did NOT have a coward in the White House:


Back in 1985, President Reagan sent 2 US Navy F-14 Tomcats from the USS Saratoga to intercepted the Egyptian 737 carrying the terrorists responsible for the Achille Lauro hijacking.


The Achille Lauro Incident began on October 7th, when Palestinian terrorists took control of the Italian cruise ship. There were over 400 passengers and crew aboard of various nationalities. The hijackers immediately demanded the release of fifty members of Palestinian Liberation Front who were being held in Israeli prisons. The Israelis refused.


During this time the terrorists had executed an American while onboard the Achille Lauro. The man was named Leon Klinghoffer, and he was confined to a wheelchair. On October 10th, the Egyptian government granted the hijackers passage on an EgyptAir 737 charter plane bound for Tunis. Meanwhile, President Reagan was aboard Air Force One when word arrived that the terrorists would soon be arriving in North Africa. He ordered the USS Saratoga and her air wing, then patrolling the Adriatic Sea, to find the EgyptAir flight and force it to land at Sigonella, Sicily.


How would Obama respond? He would do absolutely nothing. Obama can be defined in one sentence: You can please some of the people some of the time but non of the people all of time. He has absolutely no backbone.


I have little doubt Palin or McCain would have reacted in a similar fashion like Reagan. Unlike Obama, Palin actually has principles, loves America and has documented executive experience dealing with emergencies and making tuff decisions. Palin also has a great appreciation and love of our soldiers and military. Which should be a prerequisite for being Commander-In-Chief. She understands the responsibility that come with America being in-charge and the only world power. Obama, on the other hand, resents America much like many European or South American elitist politicians who sees the power and dominance of America with anger and jealousy. His world apology tour and his surrender to the no longer “War on Terror” has made this very clear.


Reagan sent in the F-14 because one America was killed and Obama does nothing when a terrorist that killed 189 Americans is freed!! More and more Americans and the world are seeing Obama, much like Carter or Chamberlain, as pathetic and a pushover. A One-term failed experiment that most now hope is over sooner then later.

Governor Palin: Obama‘s “Death Panels” at Veteran Hospitals

Friday, August 21, 2009 0 Responses

Governor Palin apparently enjoys The Wall Street Journal. As we see The NY Times sink The Wall Street Journal grows to more then double its readership. Despite heading into bankruptcy The NY Times continually demonstrates it is not even bottom-of-my-birdcage worthy by targeting Governor Palin. All to protect the disaster Obama. Unfortunately, their demise is a good thing.

Governor Palin posted this WSJ editorial by Jim Towey, President of Saint Vincent College, former head of White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives and founder of Aging with Dignity:

Death Book for Veterans, Ex-soldiers don't need to be told they're a burden to society

Last year, bureaucrats at the VA's National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, "Your Life, Your Choices." It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA's preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated "Your Life, Your Choices."

[...]

"Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living."

The circumstances listed include ones common among the elderly and disabled: living in a nursing home, being in a wheelchair and not being able to "shake the blues." There is a section which provocatively asks, "Have you ever heard anyone say, 'If I'm a vegetable, pull the plug'?" There also are guilt-inducing scenarios such as "I can no longer contribute to my family's well being," "I am a severe financial burden on my family" and that the vet's situation "causes severe emotional burden for my family."

When the government can steer vulnerable individuals to conclude for themselves that life is not worth living, who needs a death panel? One can only imagine a soldier surviving the war in Iraq and returning without all of his limbs only to encounter a veteran's health-care system that seems intent on his surrender.

I was not surprised to learn that the VA panel of experts that sought to update "Your Life, Your Choices" between 2007-2008 did not include any representatives of faith groups or disability rights advocates. And as you might guess, only one organization was listed in the new version as a resource on advance directives: the Hemlock Society (now euphemistically known as "Compassion and Choices").

This hurry-up-and-die message is clear and unconscionable. Worse, a July 2009 VA directive instructs its primary care physicians to raise advance care planning with all VA patients and to refer them to "Your Life, Your Choices." Not just those of advanced age and debilitated condition—all patients. America's 24 million veterans deserve better.

[...]

If President Obama is sincere in stating that he is not trying to cut costs by pressuring the disabled to forgo critical care, one good way to show that commitment is to walk two blocks from the Oval Office and pull the plug on "Your Life, Your Choices." He should make sure in the future that VA decisions are guided by values that treat the lives of our veterans as gifts, not burdens.

Gov Palin Called It: Obama Loans $10 billion & Soros Invests $811 Million In Petrobas

Thursday, August 20, 2009 2 Responses

On Wednesday, August 19, 2009 Governor Palin commented on Obama Sending Billions Overseas To Appease Environmentalists and she apparently saw that something was fishy. She questioned why the US is investing even $1 overseas for energy when we have the need at home. Well now we know! Obama & cronies have guaranteed $10 billion in loans to Pertrobas but what is more disturbing is socialist Soros invested $811 million in the same company. He must have an inside source?


Bloomberg reported Obama Financier George Soros bought a $811 million stake in Petrobas Brazil SA, making the Brazilian state-controlled oil company his investment fund's largest holding. As of June 30, the stake in Petrobras, as the Rio de Janeiro-based oil producer is known, made up 22% of the $3.68 billion of stocks and American depositary receipts held by Soros Fund Management LLC, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Petrobras has since slumped 28%.


Oddly enough, Oil Online reported Pertobas has secured a loan of 10 billion in US tax dollars from Obama:


The U.S. government is prepared to provide up to $10 billion in loans to finance the development of massive hydrocarbon reserves off Brazil’s coast, a Brazilian official said Wednesday.


Obama’s national security adviser, Gen. James Jones, discussed the matter with officials this week during a visit to the South American country, Brazilian Planning Minister Paulo Bernardo da Silva told reporters. He said the U.S. Export-Import Bank already has signed a letter of intent in that regard with Brazilian state oil company Petrobras.


Coincidence or dirty politics? It looks like Obama is once again paying back his friends. I hope everyone likes the “Change.” God help us all!

The Reagan/Palin Model For Leadership

Thursday, August 20, 2009 1 Response

Christopher G. Adamo, of realitycheck.org, wrote a very nice piece on the similarities of Reagan and Palin’s leadership styles. Mr Adamo is a managing partner of Best American Buy an e-commerce business that markets American made products (we should always try to purchase) including the incomparable Abigail Adams Bedspread Set from Bates Mills. Contact information for Chris Adamo, and his archives, can be found at www.chrisadamo.com. I posted part of the article:


The health care fight is far from over. Barack Obama has invested the entirety of his political capital into his aggressive strategy for passing some form of medical socialism during his term. Yet it is clear that the playing field has changed and the Democrats are now completely on the defensive.


[...]


Senate Minority Mitch McConnell (R.-KY), suggest a general Republican timidity in executing a frontal counterattack on pro-socialized health care forces. In an August 10 interview on Fox News, McConnell stated, “We’d like to make a deal, but we’d like to make the right kind of deal. I mean this is not about embarrassing anybody politically. This is about getting it right.”

Hardly the stuff of impassioned leadership, McConnell’s insipid comment reflects a tired and compliant mindset among too many Republicans on Capitol Hill who seem to have forgotten how to relate to the people of the heartland.


[...]


Yet past and present, certain fearless individuals who, despite a barrage of media ridicule have been exhibiting the qualities of true leadership, are showing how to effectively confront this issue. And by example they reveal the proper manner by which to thwart all of the other inroads on the American ideal from the left. The strategy is not new, and it has a clear track record of success, both for the issue at hand and for the political benefit of the individuals who champion it. As such it should be considered and embraced by principled officeholders who are not intimidated at the prospect of liberal media derision.

In 1961, Ronald Reagan made an actual LP record of his commentary opposing socialized medicine that is currently being widely circulated throughout the Internet. It is profound in two respects. First, its pertinence, on a point-by-point basis, to the topic in its current form, four dozen years after Reagan discussed it, proves that the principles of right versus left, and conservatism as a safeguard against the liberal deconstruction of America still stand as they always have. Secondly, by his courageous willingness to strike hard at the issue, Reagan contributed to its ultimate defeat.

Fast forward to 2009, and another bold and courageous public figure once again sets the right example. Alaska Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, making good on her promise to carry the torch for conservatism, accurately and bluntly characterized one provision of the socialized health care bill as “death panels,” to describe bureaucratic boards empowered to make “end of life” decisions for elderly and acutely ill patients.

When making her pronouncement, Palin could have had no illusions about the tenor of ensuing criticism she received. The liberal media punditry did not temper its scorn for her as it sought on numerous occasions to trivialize and even deny her contention. Yet it quickly became evident that such efforts were not advancements of the liberal standard, but defensive reactions. Obama himself responded, insisting that the characterization was false.

Many contended that no such provisions existed in any form of the bill. In the end however, the “nonexistent” verbiage was removed from the existing version of the legislation.

Clearly, Palin’s bold assessment of this glaring and dangerous aspect of the envisioned government “health care” program has hit its mark. It is obvious that America’s senior citizens have heard the alarm she sounded and are responding to it. Sixty thousand seniors have quit the AARP upon their realization of that organization’s undeniably leftist agenda, and nobody can credibly deny Palin’s educating effect on them.

If real America does not lose heart, and continues to express its righteous outrage, the Congress, despite Democrat majorities, will have to listen to the people and this issue can be defeated. Real conservative leadership is needed to stay the course in defeating this as well as every other clammy tentacle of liberal government expansion. Once again, Sarah Palin has shown the way.

Slowwitted US Agency Responds to Governor Palin’s Assault

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 0 Responses

With all do respect, Governor Palin’s point is rather simple: Why are we investing in and contracting with more foreign corporations & countries to provide energy for the US? The real reason is Øbama is the worst type of hypocrite which makes him dangerous and very anti-American.

On-the-one-hand, he thinks he is attempting to appease the crazy environmentalists while supplying the US with more of its energy needs. 1st, with out a doubt the Brazilians will do more harm to the environment than any US corporation. 2nd, states like CA, ND, AK and others have large untapped oil reserves and with the CA’s & US deficit crisis we are investing in Brazil and Brazilian corporations for energy? Once again Øbama is spending tax payers money with absolutely no regard for the future as all good liberals do.

As we all are aware, Drilling at home creates thousands of jobs, we become less dependent on foreign sources of energy & safer and US dollars and revenue stay in the US. As anyone with common sense knows the point was to drill at home. So once again, Governor Palin is 100% correct.

Here we have 2 Bank spokesman, Phil Cogan and an unnamed administrator, speaking to Politico:

The bank does not rely on tax money and that Palin's statement ignores the bank's central function: To lend money to foreign companies for the purchase of American goods and services. Governor Palin’s comments were primarily targeting Øbama & cronies and than this tax-funded US corporation.

"It has to be produced by U.S. workers," Cogan said. Palin's statement refers to "creating jobs and health benefits in the U.S." "That's exactly what a purchase financed by the U.S. government would do," Cogan said. “The loan would likely finance engineering services, sales of ships to service oil platforms, or drilling equipment. This is the government doing what it's supposed to do: Create jobs and make sure that Americans get a fair shot at selling goods and services — not the British or the French or anyone else — and to help American workers compete on a level playing field"

The unnamed administration official had this to say: "This is like her and her death panels. “This is one more example of, 'Let's take a situation with a kernel of truth and blow it up and not let the facts ruin a good story.”

The answer is drill at home dummy and, next time please have someone read Governor Palin’s editorial to you. I also thought he had a great Barney Franks response.

Gov Palin: Obama Sending Billions Overseas To Appease Environmentalists

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 1 Response

“Your Tax Dollars Hard At Work: 1st Cars, Now Foreign Oil”


Today's Wall Street Journal contains some puzzling news for all Americans who are impacted by high energy prices and who share the goal of moving us toward energy independence.


For years, states rich with an abundance of oil and natural gas have been begging Washington, DC politicians for the right to develop their own natural resources on federal lands and off shore. Such development would mean good paying jobs here in the United States (with health benefits) and the resulting royalties and taxes would provide money for federal coffers that would potentially off-set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the federal debt and deficits, or even help fund a trillion dollar health care plan if one were so inclined to support such a plan.


So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That's all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.


I'll speak for the talent I have personally witnessed on the oil fields in Alaska when I say no other country in the world has a stronger workforce than America, no other country in the world has better safety standards than America, and no other country in the world has stricter environmental standards than America. Come to Alaska to witness how oil and gas can be developed simultaneously with the preservation of our eco-system. America has the resources. We deserve the opportunity to develop our resources no less than the Brazilians. Millions of Americans know it is true: "Drill, baby, drill." Alaska is proof you can drill and develop, and preserve nature, with its magnificent caribou herds passing by the Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS), completely unaffected. One has to wonder if Obama is playing politics and perhaps refusing a "win" for some states just to play to the left with our money.


The new Gulf of Mexico lease sales tomorrow sound promising and perhaps will move some states in the right direction, but we all know that the extreme environmentalists who serve to block progress elsewhere, including in Alaska, continue to block opportunities. These environmentalists are putting our nation in peril and forcing us to rely on unstable and hostile foreign countries. Mr. Obama can stop the extreme tactics and exert proper government authority to encourage resource development and create jobs and health benefits in the U.S.; instead, he chooses to use American dollars in Brazil that will help to pay the salaries and benefits for Brazilians to drill for resources when the need and desire is great in America.


Buy American is a wonderful slogan, but you can't say in one breath that you want to strengthen our economy and stimulate it, and then in another ship our much-needed dollars to a nation desperate to drill while depriving us of the same opportunity.

Sarah Palin Is Remarkably Similar To Ronald Reagan

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 1 Response

Paul Benedict (Libertarian), of NolanChart.com, wrote a very nice piece describing Governor Palin and Governor Reagan. Both were ridiculed and belittled by the press, in a very similar manner, on there way to The White House.

Most of America, via the health care debate, has now been treated to a taste of the derision that Governor Palin has experienced on a daily basis. Though Americans will not soon forget they were fed such bitter fare by their elected leaders, the malicious slander sent their way is a badge of honor. Generation after generation of Americans have walked this same ground and have been scorned from far higher thrones than these. Consider for examples both Governor Palin and President Reagan.

The political elite's caricature of Sarah Palin is remarkably similar to Ronald Reagan's. Perhaps that is why she was invited to speak at the Ronald Reagan library. Both Palin and Reagan have been criticized as unintelligent. Reagan because of his long career in acting rather than in the brainwashing institutes of "higher learning," and Palin because she is the mother of five and simple hearted enough to practice the things she claims to believe. Palin, of course, has had additional elements of her gender thrown into the characterization of her intellectual merits. Despite the academic abuse of the English language, what the effetes criticize should not be confused with a lack of intelligence. Even during his life, Reagan's photographic memory was well known, and despite his collegiate love of football more than books, he could read the newspaper at five (Dutch 27).

[...]

Sarah Palin's distinct accent and disinterest in the citadels of intellectual enlightenment are not disadvantages to the pursuit of American political liberty, they are, if history is to speak, prerequisites. Indeed, every time this mother of five, speaking in colloquial English, topples a tyrant of the intelligentsia with the simple truth, America cheers. We who are of Lincoln's party cheer when she, self-tutored, bests her Stephen Douglas with her Middle American parlance. We love it when with the passion of Fredric Douglas she actually reads a bill and speaks her mind with an insight lost on those of the priests of Egypt who love title more than truth. That is America. That is conservatism. That is the crisp sound of liberty ringing in the morning breeze.

Sarah Palin, unlike Ronald Reagan, is yet largely untested in the greater arena of national politics (until the recent Health Care debate and, like Reagan, only a single phrase was needed). Even as recently as two months ago it was even money whether she had just quit on her role as governor or whether she had beat a strategic retreat. Such things must, of course, look alike. For instance, at the Battle of Cannae, when Hannibal's center retreated, history only understood the Carthaginian's genius by the astounding number of Roman dead. Perhaps the vanishing language on rationing and death panels is only coincident with the voices of the American people. On the other hand, perhaps that distant thunder is, after all, the Nubian cavalry sealing in the reckless ranks of the statist academics and their media sycophants. Time will tell, but the visceral outrage of petty tyrants at an ex-Governor's little Facebook page may just be the first sounds of an historic massacre.

Are We Saved? Gov Palin’s ‘Death Panel’ KILLS Øbama’s Gov Option!

Sunday, August 16, 2009 0 Responses

This is absolutely amazing. It is looking like Governor Palin's efforts have not only put Øbama & team on defense but a total surrender. The Government-Run Health Care option is now 'not essential' or even better off the table according to several sources! As Governor Palin’s first move at a run towards the White House in 2012, she could not have made a stronger showing. I would suggest befriending Governor Palin on her Facebook page to keep up with the latest. She has been getting 20,000 new supporters or friend request a day.


According To James Taranto and The Wall Street Journal:

Palin Wins: If she’s dim and Øbama is brilliant, how did he lose the argument to her?

The first we heard about Sarah Palin's "death panels" comment was in a conversation last Friday with an acquaintance who was appalled by it. Our interlocutor is not a Democratic partisan but a high-minded centrist who deplores extremist rhetoric whatever the source. We don't even know if he has a position on ØbamaCare. From his description, it sounded to us as though Palin really had gone too far.

A week later, it is clear that she has won the debate.

Øbama himself took the comments of the former governor of the 47th-largest state seriously enough to answer them directly in his so-called town-hall meeting Tuesday in Portsmouth, N.H. As we noted Wednesday, he was callous rather than reassuring, speaking glibly--to audience laughter--about "pulling the plug on grandma."

The Los Angeles Times reports that Palin has won a legislative victory as well:

A Senate panel has decided to scrap the part of its health care bill that in recent days has given rise to fears of government "death panels," with one lawmaker suggesting the proposal was just too confusing.


The Senate Finance Committee is taking the idea of advance care planning consultations with doctors off the table as it works to craft its version of health care legislation, a Democratic committee aide said Thursday.


Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, ranking Republican on the committee, said the panel dropped the idea because it could be "misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly." . . .

The Palin claim about "death panels" was so widely discredited that the White House has begun openly quoting it in an effort to show that opponents of the health care overhaul are misinformed.


You have to love that last bit. The fearless, independent journalists of the Los Angeles Times justify their assertion that the Palin claim was "widely discredited" with an appeal to authority--the authority of the White House, which is to say, the other side in the debate. One suspects the breathtaking inadequacy of this argument would have been obvious to Times reporters Christi Parsons and Andrew Zajac if George W. Bush were still president.

For a wonderful example of such hubris, check out this post from David Kurtz of TalkingPointsMemo.com:


Is there anything quite as unsettling as when the nation's political class (and I use that term broadly to encompass the occasionally political, like the tea partiers) turns its fleeting but intense focus to a new (for them) and complex topic, like end-of-life issues?


It seems like years of painstaking work to nudge our death-denying culture toward a more frank and humane approach to our own mortality and dying could be erased by one misguided national discussion set off by none other than Sarah Palin.


Except that Palin didn't "set off" this discussion; Øbama did by trying to ram through legislation postalizing the medical system with no time for debate or reflection. How to care for dying patients is a serious, sensitive and complicated matter, one with which American families struggle every day


According To Alison Fitzgerald, Timothy J. Burger and Bloomberg:

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said providing citizens with the option of government-run insurance isn’t essential to the Obama administration’s proposed overhaul of U.S. health care.

“What’s important is choice and competition,” Sebelius said today on CNN’s “State of the Union.” The public option itself “is not the essential element.”

Asked if a cooperative plan is a possible replacement, Sebelius said she didn’t know what alternatives Congress would settle on among competing versions of the health legislation now under consideration. The Senate Finance Committee is discussing cooperatives, or networks of health-insurance plans owned by their customers, that would get started with government funds.

Sebelius’ comments suggest that Øbama may be considering backing off its commitment to create a government-run health insurance system to operate alongside private insurers in order to get health legislation passed.

“There are not the votes in the Senate for the public option, there never have been,” North Dakota Senator Kent Conrad, one of the lead Democratic negotiators on health care in the Finance Committee, said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“To continue to chase that rabbit, I think, is just a wasted effort,” he said.

“President Øbama and his cabinet have read the tea leaves,” said Senator Richard Shelby, an Alabama Republican, on the Fox program. The American people “don’t want a government- run program,” Shelby said. Shelby also said that the creation of co-ops, while “that would be government involvement” would be “a step in the right direction.”


According to The Nefarious AP:

Bowing to Republican (Governor Palin) pressure, Øbama's administration signaled on Sunday it is ready to abandon the idea of giving Americans the option of government-run insurance as part of a new health care system.


Facing mounting opposition to the overhaul, administration officials left open the chance for a compromise with Republicans that would include health insurance cooperatives instead of a government-run plan. Such a concession probably would enrage Øbama's liberal supporters but could deliver a much-needed victory on a top domestic priority opposed by GOP lawmakers.


Officials from both political parties reached across the aisle in an effort to find compromises on proposals they left behind when they returned to their districts for an August recess. Øbama had sought the government to run a health insurance organization to help cover the nation's almost 50 million uninsured, but he never made it a deal breaker in a broad set of ideas that has Republicans (Governor Palin) unified in opposition.

American College of Surgeons & Governor Palin: Deeply Disturbed Over Obama's Uninformed Comments

Friday, August 14, 2009 3 Responses

Is response to Obama’s uniformed comments about high-quality care in the US. Governor Palin posted this statement from the American College of Surgeons on her Facebook page:


Chicago, IL — The American College of Surgeons is deeply disturbed over the uninformed public comments Obama continues to make about the high-quality care provided by surgeons in the United States. When the President makes statements that are incorrect or not based in fact, we think he does a disservice to the American people at a time when they want clear, understandable facts about health care reform. We want to set the record straight.


Yesterday during a town hall meeting, Obama got his facts completely wrong. He stated that a surgeon gets paid $50,000 for a leg amputation when, in fact, Medicare pays a surgeon between $740 and $1,140 for a leg amputation. This payment also includes the evaluation of the patient on the day of the operation plus patient follow-up care that is provided for 90 days after the operation. Private insurers pay some variation of the Medicare reimbursement for this service.


Three weeks ago, Obama suggested that a surgeon’s decision to remove a child’s tonsils is based on the desire to make a lot of money. That remark was ill-informed and dangerous, and we were dismayed by this characterization of the work surgeons do. Surgeons make decisions about recommending operations based on what’s right for the patient.


We agree with Obama that the best thing for patients with diabetes is to manage the disease proactively to avoid the bad consequences that can occur, including blindness, stroke, and amputation. But as is the case for a person who has been treated for cancer and still needs to have a tumor removed, or a person who is in a terrible car crash and needs access to a trauma surgeon, there are times when even a perfectly managed diabetic patient needs a surgeon. Obama’s remarks are truly alarming and run the risk of damaging the all-important trust between surgeons and their patients.


We assume that the President made these mistakes unintentionally, but we would urge him to have his facts correct before making another inflammatory and incorrect statement about surgeons and surgical care.
