Governor Palin Helps Raise $1.2 Million For Autism

Monday, June 08, 2009 1 Response


PURCHASE, NY June 7th- At the age of 9, Salvatore Giuliano already has the support of his school, family and day camp. The Dobbs Ferry boy was diagnosed with autism at 3, and about 10 of his closest friends walked the perimeter of Manhattanville College in his honor yesterday for the eighth annual autism awareness walk.

The estimated 12,000 people who converged on the campus to walk for autism awareness also heard from Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the former GOP vice presidential candidate who attended the event with her sister and nephew, who has autism.

The event was organized by the Westchester-Fairfield chapter of Autism Speaks. So far just over $400,000 in donations has been recorded but the group expects to raise $1.2 million. The final amount will not be known until the end of the month. Autism is a developmental disability that affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says its prevalence is rising - 1 in every 150 American children now has the disorder. Giuliano is a student at Springhurst Elementary School and goes to Our Victory Day Camp. His mother, Patti, said she has two older children, ages 16 and 18, who, even though they're older, come to "Sal" for help with the bus schedule. "His memory is so good," she said. "My husband says he should play poker."

Westchester Community College student Maria Cappelli said she met Sal through her sister, who is a friend of Sal's sister. Now she and Sal are best friends, she said. Cappelli said she, too, goes to Sal for bus schedule information, and she echoed his mother's comments on his impeccable memory. "We hang out like all the time," Sal said of Cappelli.

Palin spoke briefly on the main stage and urged attendees to support the Combating Autism Act, which was passed in 2006 and authorizes millions in expenditures to combat the illness. She then shook hands and took pictures with officers from the Harrison Police Department in Reid Hall.

Governor Palin Obama Smack Down 9pm On Fox News

Monday, June 08, 2009 2 Responses


Apparently, Governor Palin accomplished at least one more thing during her trip to New York. She sat down for an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News to slam President Barrack Obama, in what the Drudge Report is calling a "we told you so" interview.

HANNITY: What do you make of – look at the state of the economy now...

THE GOVERNOR: Well, when you consider that the federal government is about eleven trillion dollars in debt, and we’re borrowing more to spend more.. it defies any sensible economic policy that any of us ever learned through college. It defies economy practices and principles that tell ya ‘you gotta quit digging that hole when you are in that financial hole’

THE GOVERNOR continues:

"America is digging a deeper hole and how are we paying for this government largesse. We’re borrowing. We’re borrowing from China and we consider that now we own sixty percent of GENERAL MOTORS – or the U.S. government does… But who is the U.S. government becoming more indebted to? It’s China. So that leads you to have to ask who is really going to own our car industry than in America."

HANNITY: You know but it goes back - It does go back a little to the campaign. I mean, ‘spread the wealth, patriotic duty…’

THE GOVERNOR: Kind of a ‘we told ya so’.

HANNITY: Socialism?

THE GOVERNOR: Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roads… nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American people’s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.

The interview airs tonight on FOXNEWS at 9 PM EST.
