    My Dear Friends in Sarah,
     
    Happy Monday to you all!!
     
    I loved her Friday interview on the Hannity show.  While I could mention any number of issues, I would like to focus briefly on one thing that I believe she said.  I put it this way because I have not had the chance to watch the show a second time!
     
    While conceding that many of the candidates in the GOP presidential field hold (some) sound conservative principles, she said that, beyond that, we need FIGHTERS.  I don’t think she said it explicitly, but, IMHO, she was saying implicitly:
     
    "These others may SAY and PROFESS the right things, but I have my doubts that they are willing to FIGHT for these principles."
     
    Guys, if we know two things about our Sarah, they are that she is a mom and she is a fighter: A Mama Grizzly.
     
    SARAH FIGHTS; nobody else has the heart and cojones and love for God and country to fight the way she has, she does, she will.
     
    THIS LADY FIGHTS; THIS LADY IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT; THIS LADY WILL BECOME OUR PRESIDENT!!!
     
    Someone who fights and suffers and bleeds for his or her beliefs is like a Gandalf or a Merlin taking a magic staff, a wand of power, and waving it over a lovely but lifeless statue…and breathing all the might and majesty and vitality of flesh and blood and soul into it!!
     
    In the hands of, in the mouth of, in the heart of our Sarah, the Constitution and the other foundation blocks of America become more than just dry documents and dead stones; they breathe forth all the fire of youth, all the flames of love for Liberty that animated our Founders, that have animated our heroes and heroines in the past, and that animate and drive and inspire all patriots today!
     
    Lead on, O Brave Captain, O Brave Heart…lead on, SarahAmerica…millions of us are poised, are primed, are prepared to follow you!!
     
    I will have a few remarks later on this week about her appearance on Chris Wallace’s show yesterday.
     
    Below is the commentary on the next page of Going Rogue.
     
    Commentary on previous pages (and accompanying photographs) may be found at:

    God bless you all always!
     
    SARAH 2012!!!!!
     
    Brianus
     
    PAGE FIFTY-SEVEN
     
    On p. 57 of GR, Sarah has just recounted the birth of their first daughter, Bristol.  She talks about the inchoate characters of her two eldest children: "With Todd away, I was busy with two active little ones in our first house…Track was the clingy one and always needed me in his sight, while Bristol was quite independent."
     
    Here we have a seemingly simple statement; nevertheless, I think it can provide insight for us into Sarah’s own character, and give us a glimpse of one of the many qualities that, taken together, have placed her in a position to assume the mantle and majesty of the Presidency of the United States.
     
    Notice that there is not a hint here of any censure either of Track’s character or of Bristol’s.  Sarah takes each one as he or she is.  I imagine that some people might have become worried about Track’s early need to cling to his mom; Sarah did not.  She allowed both Track and Bristol to develop along the natural grooves and tracks (no pun intended!) and timetables planted in them by an all-wise Creator.  There is no hint that I can discern of any sentiment on Sarah’s part that she should be worried about Track, or should force him prematurely into being as independent as Bristol was at this time.
     
    Behold the magnificent results of her prudent and wise patience!!
     
    Track enlisted in the United States Army and served his country honorably in Iraq.  He is assuming the responsibility for the family fishing business.  He is going to be studying at the University of Alaska.  He is now married!!  Sarah and Todd let him develop at his own pace, and now he is a model young man and citizen of his State and of his country!
     
    May we not draw a comparison and parallel between the variegated characters of different children, and the multifarious natures of the many States in our Union?
     
    We are confronted today with power-hungry Washington political hacks, led by "president" barack obama, who do not understand the character of our great country; who despise the Tenth Amendment; who scorn the individual history and "genius" of each of the magnificent fifty stars and States that combine and coalesce to constitute the glory and constellation of our flag and of our Union!
     
    They want to impose an imperial homogeneity, an unnatural "oneness," on the many States.  In place of the free United STATES (plural) of America, they seek to eradicate all natural distinctions and differences between regions and peoples, and create one Communist "STATE" (singular) of "Amerika"!!
     
    The young Sarah wisely understood and respected the individual natures of her kids.
     
    The ever-young, but older Sarah (guys, if I may insert something here, she seems to me to be even more "young" and lovely and beautiful in her forties than she was in her twenties!!)–the ever-young, but still older Sarah well understands the unique genius of the United STATES of America.  She understands, respects, loves our Constitution.  She is of one mind with the Founders about the nature of the country, about the proper relationship between the States, and about the nature of their federal Union.
     
    She was a wise mom then; she is a wise mom today.
     
    GEORGE WASHINGTON: FATHER OF HIS COUNTRY.
     
    SARAH LOUISE HEATH PALIN: MOTHER OF HER COUNTRY !!!

    Ok, I hate doing this, but I’m severely hacked off.

    My alleged conservative local radio guy has a poll on his website re: whether or not Gov. Palin will run. He’s a Mitt guy, trying to not openly support him, but it’s not working. He is a alum of the Bush 41 administration. He thinks the Gov. won’t run because she craves the limelight and the money (he doesn’t know her very well, does he?). His fill-in host had Frank Bailey on his show last week, tossed him nothing but softballs, didn’t challenge him on anything (he and I got into a fairly heated e-mail exchange afterward), so I want him to see a little shock and awe.

    Anyway, please go to his website, scroll down a bit and you’ll see the poll. Vote and give him a tingle up his leg. Thank you.

    Fellow Palinistas:

    We are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon us. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with us. In company with our brave tea parties and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts we will bring about the destruction of the socialist government machine, the elimination of radical Islamist tyranny over oppressed peoples of the Middle East, and security for ourselves in a free world.

    Our task will not be an easy one. Our enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

    But this is the year 2011. Much has happened since the Democratic triumphs of 2008. The conservatives have inflicted upon the liberals great defeats, in open legislative battle, man-to-man. Our media offensive has seriously reduced their strength on the air and their capacity to wage psychological warfare on the ground. Our tea parties have given us an overwhelming superiority in enthusiasm and munitions of funds, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men and women. The tide has turned. The free men and women of the world are marching together to victory.

    I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.

    Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

    Another one on the movie … a quote …

    "Though the film production timeline was not, it appears, done with any kind of presidential 2012 campaign in mind, it is capable of giving people a second impression of Palin and one that could prove useful in a 2012 discussion, because it’s a documentary based on facts that show the governor as an astute leader and a smart woman, unlike how she has been portrayed for the better part of three years. Bannon himself is a Harvard grad and was impressed with how Palin governed the state. He also said even some liberals in the entertainment industry are garnering a great appreciation for her as a person of substance."

    Here’s a report from the Gov’s meeting with Roger Ailes (h/t Josh Painter) by Howard Kurtz of Newsweek:

    "Ailes told me he met with Palin in his Manhattan office, serving chicken sandwiches and giving her parents and daughter Piper a tour of the Fox studios. Palin told him she’ll decide on a White House bid this summer."

      This report makes more sense than some of the other reports.

      Ailes probably asked Sarah what he should tell the Federal Election Commission if they came around bugging him about her political future.  He clearly wants her to remain on the payroll as long as he can (and she wants) due to ratings but he has to uphold the law as well.

      And, getting a studio tour from one of the most powerful media figures in America — priceless

    The Long View… Why Neither Bachmann/Cain Nor Ethanol Subsidies Pose a Threat to Palin’s Nomination:

    Palin’s Multiple Paths, through Iowa and Ethanol, to the Nomination
    06/04/2011
    Brices Crossroads

    When Sarah Palin came out against government subsidies in general,
    including ethanol subsidies, which are reputedly inviolable among
    voters in grain producing states like Iowa, the beltway archons
    pronounced this a very grave problem for her in the "first in the
    nation" Iowa caucuses this February 6. Since she is expected to win
    here, a loss in Iowa would finish her campaign early, so they tell us.
    As a stopped clock, is this one of the two times for the beltway "wise
    men" to be correct? No, it is not. Palin’s position against government
    subsidies in general is good fiscal and pro-free-market policy. But, as
    is frequently the case, it is good politics as well.

    I am not at all convinced that her position against ethanol subsidies costs Palin Iowa. My reasons are twofold. Opposing ethanol subsidies separates her from the panderers, and her rejoinder to any attack on this front is at once principled and practical: that is, she opposes
    subsidies because they are anti-Free Market (principle) and because we can’t afford them any more (practical). What is the use of promising a subsidy, she might ask, if the federal government is too broke to make good on it? With a $14 trillion debt, that argument has real resonance. The ethanol subsides are a threat to other programs which would berelatively more unjust to cut, like Medicare for seniors, who have actually paid into a system and thus should prime those who are merely being subsidized gratuitously. This argument would apply to Iowa
    seniors as well, and would have real political "legs", since Iowa just happens to be the fourth oldest state in the Union (just behind Florida, Pennsylvania and West Virginia according to the 2000 Census, with 14.9% of its population over the age of 65).

    She can frame these latter day "Corn Laws" by referring to the Corn Laws of the 19th Century. The 19th Century Corn Laws were a protective tariff (or tax) designed to shield the British grain market from cheaper foreign imports. In their operation, however, they punished the British
    consumer (who ultimately paid the tax through higher prices) and not only protected the domestic grain industry but restrained Free trade and withdrew capital from free market commerce, with a net negative effect on wealth creation. In contrast, the ethanol subsides are not a direct tax but, rather, an indirect one, which ultimately falls on the American taxpayer and is financed–in the near term– by money borrowed from foreign countries. To continue these subsides under the current circumstances is not just bad policy, but sheer madness. When their
    toxic effect is properly explained by someone who really believes it, the electorate, even in Iowa, will not only understand but will embrace the anti-subsidy position.

    But let’s assume for the sake of argument that I am wrong and that her stand on ethanol, coupled with the presence of the TEA party stalking horse(s) in Iowa allows Romney or Pawlenty to gain a plurality. Is that the end of the game for Sarah Palin? Not by a long shot. Remember 1976. Gerald Ford, a sitting President, won the first six caucus/primaries in a row Iowa, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Florida and Illinois), stretching from January 27 until March 23, a two month string of defeats before Reagan finally broke through to upset Ford in North Carolina. Reagan then went on a tear of victories through the south and the west that
    left him only a few delegates short of a first ballot victory. (Students of Reagan remember that his campaign’s failure to file a full slate of delegates in some states–most prominently Pennsylvania–
    likely cost him the 1976 nomination.)

    Let’s say she loses Iowa and then loses New Hampshire, as Reagan did in 1976. Where do the
    primaries go next? South to South Carolina and to the socially conservative (and delegate rich) states in Dixie. And to the equally delegate rich and libertarian-conservative west. And what of the field? It will be thinner by then. Mitt Romney, if he has eked out victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, will cause the bile to rise in southern and western throats and will be the subject of a "stop-Romney" campaign. Cain and Bachmann will NOT win Iowa and thus will have run out of money and probably dropped out long before the primaries go south. Even should they persist, however, if their voters have provided the margin to defeat Palin in the first two primaries, Cain and Bachmann will be seen (at least operationally) as Romney allies. They will thus be
    marginalized and will lose any viability as stalking horses either in Dixie or in the West. As the Panama Canal was Reagan’s issue, Romneycare will be hers. Stripped of his blockers, Romney will be a ripe and easy target for Palin everywhere south of Mason/Dixon and west of the Mississippi.

    But, her detractors will argue, 2012 is not 1976. Granted. The political landscape is far friendlier to a Reagan style, TEA party conservative in 2012 than it was in 1976 when the Gipper came within a eyelash of denying a sitting President thenomination. Unlike Gerald Ford, however, Mitt Romney is not President of the United States and thus has no institutional claim on the
    nomination, as Ford did.

    And the delegate map is not the same either. Roughly the same number of delegates is needed to nominate now as then: 1130 delegates in 1976; 1212 delegates in 2012. But the relative size
    of the state delegations has changed dramatically. The population shifts and voting patterns of the last 35 years have seen the delegate totals in the South and Mountain West come to dwarf those in the Northeast, which is the only even arguable Romney stronghold. For example, with a combined population of 9.6 million, staunchly conservative Alabama and Louisiana, because of their fealty to the GOP cause, have the same number of delegates (95) as New York, which has
    more than twice the population (19.6 million). To illustrate this trend, in 1976, New York had a whopping 154 delegates, while Alabama and Louisiana had a combined total of approximately 70 delegates. Relatively tiny GOP strongholds South Carolina and Mississippi have roughly half the population of blue Pennsylvania (approximately 7million to 13 million), but they have a combined 87 delegates to the Keystone state’s 72. (Pennsylvania had 88 delegates in 1976; South Carolina and Mississippi had about 60) In the west, tiny Idaho and Wyoming (combined population: 2 million) have a total of 61 delegates, 20% more than New Jersey (population: 8.7 million), which only has 50. In a word, Mitt Romney is going to be in big trouble when the primaries head south and west in March, regardless of the outcome of Iowa and New Hampshire.

    Let me say a word about California here, as I am quite sure Palin will compete vigorously in the California primary, which is currently scheduled to be a winner take all primary for 172 delegates. Most of the chattering class would currently write off Palin’s chances in California, because it is now a Democratic state. However, the grass roots of the GOP in California are far more
    conservative than the electorate at large, as witness the 2010 GOP Senate primary in which Palin endorsee, pro-life Carly Fiorina won with 56.5%, while staunchly conservative Chuck Devore snagged a very respectable 19%. If 75% of the GOP primary voters in California voted for a Palin endorsed candidate and one who was arguably even more conservative, her chances in the California primary seem to me to be very good indeed. Also, when discussing California electoral
    proclivities, GOP primary voters seem to have an affinity for candidates with "star power" stretching back to George Murphy in the 1960s, and including both Reagan and Schwarzenegger. In other words, the contrast between Palin’s charisma and and Romney’s stiffness will be starker in California than..say… in Kansas. And, I predict, so will the electoral consequences.

    But overall, one begins to get the picture. When the nomination race turns south and west, Palin will be in a position to recover from any early slips. Indeed, even if she loses both Iowa and New Hampshire, as did Reagan in 1976, she will be far better positioned for a comeback than was Reagan that year. Of course, should she win Iowa and New Hampshire, Romney will be toast. He
    will not be staging any comebacks in the Deep South or in the Rocky Mountain West.

    Having said all this, I still predict she will win Iowa . She will not fail to take it seriously, as Reagan did both in1976 and 1980. That was his campaign’s error there both times, not any
    particular issue position he took. But if she doesn’t win Iowa, she will still be the nominee. Unlike Romney and the rest, she has multiple paths to the nomination, a friendlier electoral map than Reagan in 1976 and the tenacity of a … Mama Grizzly.

      I think Palin knows more about the politics of subsidies as well or better than anyone in the country coming from Alaska as a Governor that took on Oil & Gas and the political establishment built around the industry. She dealt with the oil and the gas out there, plus all the Fed payments to Alaska and navigated political victory in Alaska just fine.

        What will make Sarah win Iowa is not subsidiaries and crazy issues it is the fact that she would be the only born again Evangelical there. Besides the turn out should be a must. She should bring to the caucus at least 60% of registered Republicans. Big turn out means she could run away with that caucus. And the thing is, she is the only one who can do that.

        DeMint running would surprise me.  He would have problems with his past support of Romney and his endorsement of Romneycare.  Added to that, name recognition (outside of SC) and money would be tough issues to overcome.

        I like DeMint and if he does make a run, more power to him.  But, it certainly appears he would be most effective promoting Conservative causes in his current position.

          The anti Palin plan is simple: Bachmann and Cain split the vote in Iowa
          Bachmann makes Romney win NH
          Romney wins Mormon Nevada handily
          DeMint jumps in and sabotage Sarah’s chances in his homestate of SC
          Romney wins his homestate of Michigan
          game over!

          Romney/Bachmann ticket lost 31 states to Obama/Biden-Clinton?

          Enter Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in 2013

          That’s the plans folks.

          You must be on crack not to see it coming. Bachmann and Cain are trash.

        Wrong. Did you read the article? Reagan lost SIX primaries in a row, including Florida, and still came within a few delegates of unseating a sitting President. South Carolina willnot make or break a national candidate like Palin.

         Demint is not running and has said so, so I don’t know why you are spreading a false rumor and treating it as a fact.  Why are you doing this?

          Don’t come with that crap. Sarah got to win Iowa, NH and SC. She loses those we can say goodbye to a woman president for 20 more years. Or maybe Hillary comes back at 69 in 2016.

          Iowa must be WON.

             Calling my comment "crap" because you disagree it is both rude and boorish.  I gave you the example of Reagan in  1976 to demonstrate that a victory in Iowa is not essential . you just blast back with your nonsense, totally unsupported.  If you don’t agree, make a coherent argument.  If you can’t do that, don’t post to me again.

          You are still going on and on about "white men"  What is your problem with white men, Junior?  But, then, you don’t like Cain either, but he’d be okay with you if he was Hispanic, wouldn’t he? Your racism is really out of line on a Palin site, and I’m getting very tired of it..

          • Anonymous

            I am tired of his "johnny one note" on the white vote too.  Techno has a brilliant analysis focused on turning out the white vote to defeat Obama and this guy keeps harping on outreach to the Hispanic vote as the solution.  Is he a troll?

            • Anonymous

              Sarah was asked something about the blacks by one of the reporters following the bus, and her reply was essentially that the situation we are facing has to be fixed for all of us.  We have been so divided by Obama and his minions into special interest groups of every kind, each one wanting something different for their group.  I think Sarah isn’t going to play into that game.  We are "One Nation" and all in the same boat.  She isn’t going to pander to any special segment of that nation…she will be the president for ALL of us and will represent ALL of us.  If one group or another doesn’t feel more important than another, tough.

              We will reach each voter by speaking about freedom and less government and fiscal responsibility and family values and…those qualities that make America exceptional.  If those values resonate for people in a particular subgroup, they will vote for Sarah, otherwise not.  To pander to a particular group to get the votes is what divides us and is not American.  To run Rubio for VP or Cain or West JUST to get the Hispanic or black vote is a transparent attempt to buy votes and won’t work, or SHOULD not work.  The same as going soft on illegals to get the Hispanic vote.  Or to be pro-Israel to get the Jewish vote or to run a woman for president to get the women’s vote. This is politics as usual but is not right.  We should do what is right and pick the most qualified candidates because they are the most qualified to lead us, and we should stand for American values because they are right, not because it would please a subgroup of hyphenated Americans.  I love Sarah because she is Sarah, not because she is a woman, and I like West as a possible VP because he seems to be as enthusiastic as a conservative like Sarah is, not because he is black.  And I like DeMint and Ryan and others because they are also strong conservatives, whatever their race. I love Israel and it is right to support our friends, not just to get the Jewish vote here.

              Every decision should be because it is RIGHT, not because it is best politics, otherwise you can just vote for Romney and his finger to the wind. You will be like our present congress that can’t do anything because someone will be mad at them, whatever they do. You must stand on principles.
               
              I thoroughly resent the tendency to further divide this nation on fake and stupid issues like Junior is doing with his "white man" slams.  I don’t know if that makes him a troll or not, but it certainly doesn’t make him seem to understand what it is to be an American.  Going back to our values and restoring our nation involves a united nation where we think of ourselves as proud Americans first, without all the hyphens.

          Hi, Amsterdam.  Things are much the same in the East Bay: obama bumper stickers on every other car, or so it seems, another season going down the drain for the Oakland A’s…but I am in great spirits.  I actually receive positive feedback sometimes, even in Berserkeley, for my Sarah pin and bumper sticker.

          I am not really too aware of the anti-circumcision thing.  Of course, California earned your Kooky Krazy Kalifornians title a long time ago.

          And to think, this used to be Reagan Country.  CA last went GOP in ’88, when people thought they were getting the third Reagan term with Bush ’41.  Despite demographic changes, I am hopeful (maybe I am just dreamin’) that my State can become Palin Country next year!!

      Good morning, everyone, and thanks again, Amex, for your great links.

      I’ve just read the Glick entry. She’s right on the money.

      If my sense of what happened with the Ofer Brothers Shipping firm is
      even partially correct, then Israel should immediately reconsider its
      willingness to maintain that cooperation. If Obama may use information
      shared in joint intelligence meetings to harm Israel for political
      purposes or, for that matter for any purpose, then Israel can no longer
      share information with the US.

      Seriously, I’m beginning to be quite fed up with this hostile Administration. As much as I/we love America here (and believe me, it’s an understatement), I really think Israel must completely reassess its relationship with the US, at least for the time being. The Sociopath-In-Chief is not only endangering Israel, but the whole world with these games. It’s getting really nuts in the SD.

        Good Mornin’ cookboy! Recovering from yesterday’s Pastor Appreciation Day Feast. Greens, more greens, blah squash, some sweet cornbread with kernels of fresh corn was great, some hot chili cheeseburger dip was real tasty but to hot for families, fried chicken, macaroni & cheese. But no out standing desserts, this opinion was not shared by granddaughter who after one round of mac & cheese busted the chocolate desserts open. She seemed to be attracted to the gooiest chocolate desserts possible.

        Good Mornin’ Brian!! A little sluggish this mornin’ after piggin’ out yesterday after church service. Luke 15:11-32 many beautiful juxtapositions developed in my mind with the United States being both the prodigal son and the son filled with contempt for his brother. The prodigal  brother wasteful spending all the treasury, the brother filled with contempt has not because he asked not.
        America, sits on a treasury that can’t be wasted away by one prodigal President & Congress. And the sooner President Palin spreads the word, America will be restore. We have treasures more than oil and gas that China can only wish they could find within their borders.

    One thing I am sure about, Sarah is not going to England and apologize about Paul Revere lying to the British soldiers.  I do hope she gets to meet with Mrs. Thatcher, what a role model. Maybe Sarah will request Churchill’s bust to return it to the White House  in 2013.

      I’d love it if she would have the Churchill bust returned to us when she is president!  What great symbolism that would be!

      I understand Thatcher suffer from Alzheimers and does not accept guests now.  I hope that Sarah can still visit her on a good day while she is there and that Thatcher can recognize another great and brave woman when she does.
