    My Dear Friends in Sarah,

    Happy Wednesday to you all!!

    The Governor’s birthday is next week, as you all know well. Since she will turn forty-nine, I suggest that we send checks in the amount of $49.00 to SarahPAC to show her our support and to wish her a Happy Birthday. My own check is already made out, and I shall mail it later on today. Obviously, of course, we can send in more or less than this, as circumstances may dictate, but I think this amount might be a suitable and appropriate gesture!!

    In reference to the ridiculous and mendacious photo of obama supposedly shooting skeet that was released recently by the "white house," I came across a perfect quip on some site, I cannot remember where. Anyway, I can take no credit for it, but someone remarked that obama is a great …


    I stated, much less succinctly, on a thread the other day, in reference to this same photo of the "president" putatively shooting clay pigeons, that the only clay obama can shoot is his own feet of clay!! Maybe I was thinking of Greg Gutfeld’s great remark a few months ago: obama doesn’t have feet of clay; clay has feet of obama!!!

    Well, she is not about to do anything so striking and powerful (as far as we know!) this year as the wonderful and wonderfully-received CPAC speech that she gave in DC last year on her birthday.

    In a way I am a bit sad and melancholy as I reflect back on that stirring B-Day oration. Remember how the enthusiastic crowd sang "Happy Birthday" to her, and how she took on and smacked down that heckler who tried to disrupt her words!! Great memories; sweet memories!!!

    And yet, and yet, sometimes more is wrought and accomplished in the quiet and hidden corners and crannies of our minds and our hearts and our spirits than is achieved on the days of our thunder and our lightning!

    Who knows what secret yet momentous project or projects our Sarah could be working on right now?? And even if she is just resting, this space of respite and relaxation could be the antechamber for and anticipation of mighty deeds of political and patriot warfare to come!!

    Below is the commentary on the next page of her beautiful first book, Going Rogue.

    Commentary on previous pages, along with photographs, may be found at:

    God bless you all always!!

    DEO VOLENTE, SARAH 2016!!!!!



    On p. 114 of GR, Sarah continues the discussion of her 2005-2006 run for Governor of Alaska. She writes, "Every part of our campaign shouted ‘Change!’ A change in campaign financing: we ran on small donations from all over the state, mostly from first-time political donors, and we turned back some large checks from big donors if we perceived conflicts of interest. A change from photo-op stops to honest conversations with actual voters. A change from emphasizing politics to emphasizing people. A change from smooth talk to straight talk–even then."

    Such was her gubernatorial campaign.

    Her presidential campaign, if she runs, will be built on and blessed by the same principles, I believe. Yes, the scale will be far grander and the stakes far greater, but it will still be a SARAH PALIN CAMPAIGN!!!

    We may notice the obvious, but no less admirable, uprightness of ethics: They turned back certain large checks from some big donors. A little less obvious may be the implications that are contained in these same lines. It is implied that they had MANY FIRST-TIME donors.

    Sarah is like that: She inspires people who have never been involved in the political process, or who have been turned off by it for a long, long time, to get involved.

    I remember that some of our friends here made a most perceptive observation during the 2012 POTUS race: People who have DROPPED OUT of political involvement altogether, due to disgust at BOTH Parties, are not measured in the usual polls and prognostications!! They are a hidden and waiting well, ready to be tapped into and drawn upon if the right Patriot comes along. And this is Sarah’s great secret weapon. She can appeal mightily to folks like this, and bring them in, and bring them back. This potential of support for her is like the great OIL reserves that our country possesses: Both are mighty sources of power and energy, just waiting to be tapped into and sent forth into combat, whether it is economic or political warfare!!

    Sarah has famously said "DRILL, BABY, DRILL!!’

    This stirring battle cry can refer both to underground petroleum reserves and to underground people reserves!!!–The Sarah Underground–untapped power and potential!!!

    Her reference to "first-time" donors reminds me too of a man I read about in a LEFT-LEANING newspaper in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 2008 campaign. This was a man who was volunteering at a local McCain-Palin headquarters. He had NEVER before worked on a political campaign. He was, as I recall, about SIXTY years old.

    He was asked why he was working on THIS campaign.

    His answer was one word:


    I believe that his number was legion in ’08, and will become a Legion of Legions if she runs for 2016!!!

    We may notice too the Governor’s censure of mere photo-ops in the passage cited above. This thought leads straight to the crushing and incriminating contrast of obama and that sick skeet-shooting photo.

    Even if the photo was not completely faked in itself, its whole INTENT is mendacious and manipulative–As if America is going to believe that barack hussein obama is anything but hostile to the Second Amendment, hostile to the whole Constitution, hostile to the American People.

    As the "president" continues to lie, continues to plot, continues to abuse his office; as the Karl Roves of the GOPe make their plans to attempt to smother and bury Free America under bulging barrels of Cronies’ Cash, let us turn our eyes:


    North first to the beautiful city of Wasilla in Alaska, with prayerful hopes that a GENUINE stateswoman and patriot may descend from her bracing Arctic Seat and come down to run for POTUS for 2016, and …

    Then North to the golden realm of our highest and loftiest ideals, principles, and aspirations …

    And finally let us raise the eyes of our minds and of our hearts to True North, to the Throne of Heaven, that the Good Lord may vouchsafe His mercy to America, and safely guide our dear Governor through all the shark-infested waters of the Dems and the GOPe to the safe port of a triumphal "Morning in America" eight-year run as OUR President, as America’s President!!!

    Edit: And Happy 102nd Birthday to the Great President of that First Morning in America, Ronald Reagan!!

    • palin45potus

      Good Morning Brianus!

      (And Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan, RIP)

      Your proposal for Mrs Palin’s B-Day is a great one.  I’ll try to scrape together the amount, and since the only political contributions I make are the ones SarahPAC proposes, this is a great idea since she never asks for donations.  We’ll just do it on our own.

      The positive results can be seen when even Karl Rove is trying to fib and claim that he was all for Deb Steelman, along with Fischer and Cruz.

      (Whatsamatter, Karl?  Does the name "Sarah" leave you tongue-tied?)

      Have a great day!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, 45–I hope that you too have a great day!!!!

        And, yes, Happy Birthday and RIP, President Reagan.

        I LOVE it–yes, I too noticed that ole Karl flubbed SARAH Steelman’s name last night!!

        "Deb Steelman" indeed.

        Your rejoinder is perfect; he cannot bring himself to even utter the name "SARAH" :-)

        The "great architect"–choke!!!

      • Pete Petretich

        Ted Fischer? Halley Scott?

      • 56Survivor

        Yes, I noticed that Rove kept referring to Sarah Steelman as "Deb Steelman".  He did it several times. 

        Bless his heart……he just can’t utter he name of "Sarah".  I.  Love. It.

    • jerseymark

      Thanks for your thoughts on "Going Rogue" as always BB. I especially liked your comments about the untapped disgusted folks as this is the core of my push for a third party victory over the last year.

      If you don’t mind, I am reposting what I posted earlier on the hold over thread:

      As we head to the end of this topic, Mr. Lewis advises us on how to avoid becoming an "Inner Ringer" in this passage from "The Weight of Glory":

      "To nine out of ten of you the choice which could lead to scoundrelism will come, when it does come, in no very dramatic colors. Obviously bad men, obviously threatening or bribing, will almost certainly not appear. Over a drink or a cup of coffee, disguised as a triviality and sandwiched between two jokes, from the lips of a man or a woman, whom you have recently been getting to know rather better and whom you hope to know better still – just at thee moment when you are most anxious not to appear crude, or naif or a prig – the hint will come. It will be the hint of something which is not quite in accordance with the technical rules of fair play; something which the public, the ignorant romantic public, would never
      understand; something which even the outsiders in your own profession are apt to make a fuss about, but something, says your new friend, which ‘we’ – and at the word ‘we’ you try not to blush for mere pleasure – something ‘we always do". And you will be drawn in, if you are drawn in, not by desire for gain or ease, but simply because at that moment, when the cup was so near your lips, you cannot bear to be trust back again into  the cold outer world. It
      would be so terrible to see the other man’s face – that genial, confidential, delightfully sophisticated face – turn suddenly cold and contemptuous, to know that you have been tried for the Inner Ring and rejected. And then, if you are drawn in, next week it will be something a little further from the rules, and next year something further still, but all in the jolliest, friendliest spirit. It may end in a crash, a scandal,  and penal servitude; it may end in millions, a peerage, and giving the prizes at your old school. But you will be a scoundrel.

      "….Of all the passions the passion for the Inner Ring is the most skillful in making a man who is not yet a very bad man do very bad things."

      I love that word "scoundrel" – it is an old fashioned word we don’t hear used much anymore but it is an exceptional word that is applicable to so many of our politicians in both parties. And hoow they got that way is no doubt aptly described by Mr. Lewis above. Many well meaning and energized folks get elected to office planning to change the world for the better only to fall by the wayside into scoundrelism in their effort to be in that "Inner Ring" for after all, it is there that the real decisions get made and if they are to change the world, they have to do it from within so compromises must be made to get into that position and they will say and fully believe that when they get there, they will be able to revert to their true selves and bring those changes about. Of course, they are simply lying to themselves because the process of getting into the "Inner Ring" with all the compromises involved changes them and when they get there, the last thing they are interested in is changing anything. They aren’t outsiders looking in any longer but the insiders they once complained about. This is how folks lose their integrity and once a compromise of one’s principles occurs, it becomes easier the next time and progressively easier thereafter.

      This is why Sarah is so different as she is the anti-politician. She is not subject to control or
      manipulation as they can not gain anything over her with which to control her and this makes them crazy. The only Ring Sarah is interested in is the one in which Jesus is the head.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Wonderful; thank you, Jerseymark!!

        IMHO, our Governor has passed multiple tests to avoid being coopted into the Circle of Scoundrels.

        She could have nodded and winked when, as Chairman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she observed the wrongdoings of the powerful Randy Ruedrich.  Instead, she took on Ruedrich, and later gave up a SIX-FIGURE salary.

        She could have won the plaudits and praise of the Left by killing her precious Trig in the womb.  No, she chose Life.

        In her great Crony Capitalism speech of 3 September, 2011 in Indianola, Iowa she declared, in effect, that she would never, ever join the Exclusive Club of Liars and Cheats.

        She is very special!!!

        God bless!!!

      What better day on which to proclaim it than the great Gipper’s birthday?!
      We look back fondly on his presidency; we look forward, hoping for hers.

      $49 to SarahPAC for her 49th — count me in.

    Just saw this that Dick Morris is totally out at FOX.

    As much as I am glad to see him go, there is now some general
    concern.  With Sarah gone and now Morris, plus Rove was put on the back
    burner, the concern is who will replace them?  Sarah is conservative and
    Rove and Morris are, at least in general, "perceived" as conservative. 
    So, does this portend a more liberal shift in FOX?

    And Happy 102nd Birthday, President Reagan–our Sarah’s hero!!!

  • palin45potus

    I wish we could put together another "Grizzley-fest" since there is much to discuss politically.

    I though that the one that was put together last year that aired during the weekend that Sarah went to the Iron-Dog race was superb.

    Right now, we conservatives are reeling from the repeated attacks on us from both our sworn enemies in the Dem Party, as well as the Bush Klan.  With the media happily coordinating the entire thing.

    ‘Whom Do You Believe? HBO or Gallup?’

    From the article:

    "Despite the premise of "Game Change" – that Sarah Palin cost John McCain the 2008 presidential election – Gallup polls prove HBO’s assertion categorically false. Palin wasn’t the reason the Republicans lost the election.

    She’s the only reason they had a fighting chance up until the time McCain suspended his presidential campaign in late September.

    In the two weeks before Palin joined the McCain ticket, the Arizona senator drifted in the low 40 percentile range, mostly around 41, 42 and 43 percent, while Obama held as much as an 8 point lead at about 49 and 50 percent. Four days after Palin joined the ticket, however, McCain’s numbers climbed to 45 percent and Obama’s sank to 47 percent, narrowing the gap significantly from eight points to two.

    Between Sept. 4-6, McCain and Palin actually overshot the Obama ticket by 3 percent with the Republicans in the lead at 48 percent and the Democrats at only 45. McCain consistently held that lead until Sept. 15, and then the candidates balanced out with Obama enjoying a mere three-point lead, and no lead at all from Sept. 22-24, when the numbers were tied at 46 percent.

    So what happened?

    On Sept. 24, however, McCain shocked the country by saying that he was suspending his presidential campaign to help President George W. Bush and Congress solve the financial crisis. Although the former war hero turned senator did it for the good of the country, it was perceived as a brash, erratic act, and that’s exactly how Obama portrayed it.

    Some were intrigued as to how McCain’s decision would play out in the polls, but once he suspended his campaign in late September he never recaptured the lead he enjoyed with the breaking news of recruiting Palin. It was downhill from there.

    Yesterday I was stopped at a red light and a car plowed into mine. Got a few stitches on the side of my head but the Dr. said it would heal up fine. It was either an accident where the other driver was not paying attention at all, or a statist GOPE conspiracy to take me out. You make the call. lol :)

    From the article:

    "That brings us to the general election. Sarah outperformed the Republican Party by a bunch. Out of the eight candidates she endorsed, six of them won"

  • palin45potus

    Ray Lewis got to do what few elite athletes ever get to do, and that was to go out on top.

    Yesterday, the St Louis Cardinals announced that their long-time ace pitcher Chris Carpenter would have to miss the entire 2013 season.  This after missing most of last season, but coming back for one last gutsy performance in the playoffs against Washington.

    It’s probable that his career is over, so I want to tip my hat to him.

    Who knows how much the 2011 Championship run by the Cardinals ended up taking out of him?  I do know that he won 4 games during those playoffs plus the clincher on the last day of the season.  His 1-0 complete game shutout against longtime pal Roy Halladay is one of the greatest pitching performances that I’ve ever seen on the part of both pitchers, with the entire season riding on it.  And the Cardinals went to him on short rest for World Series Game 7 with no hesitation whatsoever.

    Nice job, Chris Carpenter!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks, 45, for this tribute to a great and gutsy pitcher.

      The Series of 2011 was one of the best ever.

    Another day in the ongoing nightmare serial, "The sorry days of our lives under a Communist masquerading as president and his enablers."  In particular, see how what’s left of our national security is hanging by a thread, as described in the first link which introduces you to Comrade Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense!

    Hagel endorsed by Communist Party USA
    Obama’s defense nominee previously earned Iran’s blessing

    Speaks volumes as to the Marxist Socialist indoctrination masquerading as education in our schools when the sorry likes of a Hagel and Obama are allowed to rise to political prominence! If ever there was a message that Hagel is an unmitigated disaster for America’s security this endorsement should be the last nail in the coffin to obliterate his nomination for Secretary of what would become NON-defense if Hagel, God forbid, is actually confirmed!

    Obama Urges Temporary Fix to Avoid Sequester: ‘Let’s Keep on Chipping Away at This Problem Together’

    You are the problem, Obama, and the "We the People" are going to chip away to send you to the political oblivion that you deserve for your wanton destruction of a free America from within by your irresponsible out of control spending increasing an unsustainable out of control debt which coupled with unfunded entitlements is going bankrupt this country! You, Obama, are a sociopathic liar who is quick to put the blame on everyone else for the problems that you INTENTIONALLY caused, and for which you deserve prosecution to the full extent of the law for the repeated foreswearing of your oath of office in regard to trashing The Constitution on a daily basis in favor of tyrannical government by fiat!

    Cantor: ‘Absolutely Not,’ Republicans Will Not Give Obama More Money

    This is nothing more than the latest bluster without substance of a litany of lies from a group of pathological liars that rival Obama in their brazen attempt to once again con the American people that they really care about an America fit to live in for them, their children and grandchildren, and future generations of Americans , not communists. You can bet the farm that, when the smoke clears, Comrade Obama will once again have his way with this sorry group of GOPE pukes masquerading as the opposition who refuse to use the power of the purse of the House to stop Obama’s tyranny destroying America from within in its tracks, which is why an angry 2010 electorate gave them the power to do so, a power that they’ve squandered BIG TIME!

    Cantor: ‘Average American’ Thinking About How to Make Their Life Work, Not Concerned with GOP

    You better believe that Americans who love this country are thinking about how to make their lives work, Cantor, and that starts by sending the sorry likes of Obama enablers like you, Boehner, McCarthy, and McConnell to the political oblivion that you deserve for betraying the trust of all those that gave you the power to stop a communist masquerading as president from willfully destroying a free America from within, a power which you summarily squandered in favor of maintaining your pathetic political fiefdoms while "We the People" are left to hang out and dry by your treachery which, in my book, makes you more despicable than Obama!

    McCarthy: Obama Batting at the ‘Mendoza Line’ When It Comes to Budgeting

    This begs a simple question. Then why don’t you and your GOPE House leadership colleagues cut off Obama’s funding at the knees, McCarthy, to stop Obama’s willful destruction of a free America from within? And if you can’t answer that question, then just SHUT UP as "We the people" have heard enough of your worthless words without substance designed to conned the brain-death that you care enough about Obama’s scorched earth policies of destroying anything and everything America to do something about it other than tell another pack of lies inferring that you do when your lack of action speaks otherwise IN SPADES, given how many times that you’ve crossed the BS line!

    Menendez: $58,500 Cost of Trips ‘Fell Through the Cracks’

    What’s worse is that we’re paying the "traveling expenses" in the millions for a Communist and his wife who must loathe each other so much that they can’t even travel on the same plane on their innumerable vacations needed for the energy that they’ve consumed in willfully destroying a free America from within!

    U.S. Says ‘Inflammatory Comments’ From Turkish Leaders ‘Very Troubling’

    This is to be expected when the fraud masquerading as president, the Imam Obama, goes on apology to Islam tours for America, and then has no problem supporting the takeover of the Middle East by the pro radical jihadist America-hating Muslim Brotherhood which, in that hate, echo Obama’s hate for a free America that he despises as is more than evinced by Obama’s trashing of everything and anything American in favor of a totalitarian state under his dictatorial control! When you stand for nothing other than the furtherance of your narcissistic megalomaniacal demands to feed your ego, the world sees through your con quickly, which is why, Obama, the only influence that you have anywhere is on the reflection in your mirror, which is a very dangerous situation indeed, not only for America but what’s left of the free world!

    EU Reacts Cautiously to Finding That Hezbollah Was Behind Bulgaria Bombing

    Says a lot when coming to the conclusion that radical Islamic terrorism can never be blamed for terrorists attacks, in particular the sanity of those dictating that conclusion for fear of offending Islam! Anyone still capable of rational thought should be able to quickly understand that you can’t divorce terrorism from the politics that de facto encourages it!

    CBO: 1.4% GDP Growth, 7.5%-Plus Unemployment for 2013

    This isn’t hard to understand when growing the economy and reducing the unemployment rate is the last thing that Comrade Obama wants to do, as evinced by his willingness to put millions out of work via his draconian unconstitutional legislation and government by fiat that is destroying the engine of the economy which is small business and the proven efficient American energy industry and all that it supports to promote a Marxist Socialist agenda as he turns a free America into a totalitarian state where "We the People" are to become "We the Slaves."

    Memo to Obama: It will be a cold day in hell before Americans in more than name only allow you to do that!

    CBO: Entitlements, ObamaCare To Make Up 53% of Federal Spending

    Nothing like robbing every American blind of their hard earned money under force of unconstitutional law via Obamacare which was the lynchpin for Comrade Obama’s transformation of America into a Marxist Socialist Slave State under his dictatorial control, while unilaterally disarming our military both materially and morally in the face of our enemies, Comrade Obama’s friends, arming to the teeth. We need to wake up and stand up to the tyrant Obama in no uncertain terms by telling him what he can do with his criminal conspiracy of an Administration whose unjust laws deserve no obedience whatsoever, in fact, DEMAND disobedience wherever and whenever they rear their ugly heads on any level, local, state, and federal, for the sake of a free America for our children, grandchildren, and future generations of Americans, NOT communists!
