    My Dear Friends in Sarah,

    Happy Wednesday to you all!!

    I would like to share a few thoughts with you this morning on anger and on laughter.

    When we observe the words and the actions of barack hussein obama; when we observe the words and the actions of the coterie and cabal of fellow-traveler thugs and thieves and traitors that he has brought with him to Washington; when we observe the words and the actions of Big Media, which has become the Goebbels Ministry of Propaganda for the foul DC Regime; when we observe the words and the actions of the supposed "opposition" of the GOPe RINOs, compromisers and cowards …

    When we observe and absorb this sad and sickening and sorrowful spectacle, it is tempting to be consumed with rage, to be consumed with fury, to be consumed with hatred.

    These powerful emotions can have their good uses, to be sure. Especially for a warrior going into combat, the righteous rage that drives the arm and hand that wield the sword, the sword that vindicates and defends the Right and the Good and the True, and CRUSHES the opposition–this anger can be a good and efficacious force.

    However, all too often, I think, we can wallow and wail in useless, bootless irritation and ire.

    The soul-destroying acid that flows to us from the outside world can be matched, to our own demise and destruction, by the bile that we generate from our own guts.

    Hence, I think we would do well, in this as in so many other things, to lift up our eyes and minds and spirits and hearts, and turn them Northward, turn them to the lovely Lady of the North Country.

    In that spirit, I present again from last June the next letter, letter R, in the "Latin Sarah" series (it has been edited slightly).

    I shall see you again this weekend.

    God bless you all always!!

    DEO VOLENTE, SARAH 2016!!!

    Brianus

    SARAH RIDENS: SARAH WHO LAUGHS/SARAH THE BRIGHT AND CHEERFUL

    The Governor’s outstanding gift and grace and glory of laughter must, I believe, be weighed and reckoned in the scales and context of all that she has suffered and endured, especially in these last four or five years.

    Easy it is to laugh when all your affairs seem to prosper;

    Easy it is to laugh when money flows abundantly into your coffers;

    Easy it is to laugh when all your friends appear to stand strong and steadfast;

    Easy it is to laugh when the Death Angel holds his sable wings and fell scythe far from your hearth and door;

    Easy it is to laugh when any enemies you may have keep their daggers in their sheaths–and not planted squarely in your back;

    Easy it is to laugh when your body glories in the glow and sheen and splendor of sound health;

    Easy it is to laugh when your ears and your heart hear naught but praise and laud for your life’s endeavors and efforts.

    However:

    Let the tide of your affairs swing around to the waning and the weakening;

    Let the glittering stream of the gold of this world dry up;

    Let "friends" betray and forsake you;

    Let Fell Death visit you in all his dreadful visage of searing sorrow;

    Let your foes converge on you as beasts in the wilderness ravage and savage after their prey;

    Let your body bow and succumb to any of the thousand ills "to which this all too frail flesh is heir";

    Let your ears and heart be filled with the shrill screams and cacophonous catcalls of opprobrium, of lies, of hate-replete censure and scorn:

    THEN AND THEN AND THEN will the Faculty and Glory of Laughter be tried in the eternal scales … and found wanting or not wanting.

    Let us, brothers and sisters, reflect for just a moment on a sliver and mite and fraction of the world-encompassing hatred and opposition to which Sarah has been subjected since the late summer of 2008.

    THINK OF THE LIES, THE SCORN, THE RIDICULE, THE HATRED, THE PHYSICAL VIOLENCE; THE PSYCHOLOGICAL VIOLENCE, THE BETRAYAL, THE VICIOUS, WIN-AT-ANY-COST MACHIAVELLIAN MACHINATIONS AND ENGINES OF DESTRUCTION THAT HAVE BEEN FEARFULLY LAUNCHED AT HER AND AT HER DEAR ONES!!!

    How has the Lady Heroine of the North Country reacted to this whirlwind and maelstrom of malevolence?!?

    She still stands.

    She still stands tall … for all of her petite stature.

    She still smiles.

    She still laughs.

    SHE CONTINUES TO INSPIRE AN ENTIRE NATION TO KEEP LAUGHING; TO KEEP HOPING; TO KEEP SMILING..

    Sarah Ridens has taught a whole new generation the sunny message of President Ronald Reagan’s indefatigable and unfailing optimism.

    The Lord willing, Sarah Ridens will soon sit in our White House, and will transform that august House from a place of foul plots, from a place of dire conspiracies, from a place of death-knell doom to a House of the People; to a House of Patriotism; to a House of Medicinal and Healing Laughter … to an edifice the very inanimate "stones" of which shall sing and rejoice to have a REAL PRESIDENT and a REAL FIRST FAMILY dwelling within their walls!!!!!!

      Sarah Palin is like the Phoenix. Knock her down and she comes back ten times stronger.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Thanks, Audrey!!

    • jester2939

      Thanks, Brianus! Sarah is an excellent role model on many fronts. It’s amazing that her enemies try to characterize her as a whiner, when nothing could be further from the truth.

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        You’re welcome and Amen, Jessica!!

    • 2C714

      Thank you so much for this post, Brian.
      She has always been an inspiration for me. God Bless.

    Guys, I apologize for the double post and for the lack of proper paragraphing. I have tried twice: 1) To edit one text and 2) To delete the duplicate text. It doesn’t seem to work. Sorry!!–Edit–Now it seems OK–I do not understand Disqus!!

    • patnatasha

      what is going on with disqus

  • jerseymark

    Well, I have reached the end on the C.S. Lewis book I have been using for these passages on which my comments have been based. I am thankful for all those here at C4P who have been supportive and have written such wonderful comments. I am thankful for the Lord’s leading in bringing me to this wonderful site supporting our one and only Sarah and giving me the opportunity to share C.S. Lewis with the many Christians who frequent this site. The timing of reaching the end is coincidental to this new format which provides folks with the ability to register their "dislike" and there is no way that my discontinuing this practice was or is affected by the negative feedback provided. I am not under any illusiions that all those folks who frequent this site were appreciative and I know that there are many who do so on the Left who would jump at the chance to register their dislike so that would not have discouraged me in the slightest, for the Lord has taught me long ago that I am to be obedient and leave the results to Him and if my effforts reach just one person for Him it is worth it. As for the short term, I will wait upon the Lord’s leading and in the meantime I will continue to enjoy the comradderie, wisdom and insight that is brought to this site by so many and provide my thoughts as well.

    Thanks again,

    Jersey Mark

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      I wish I could give you 100 or more "likes," my friend. BTW, the Narnia books were favorites of mine while I was doing graduate work in the Latin and Greek Classics. IMHO, Tolkien and Lewis were two of the great literary giants of the twentieth century. Again, God BLESS for your faithful efforts!!!

      • jerseymark

        Look at all the liberal trolls with their "dislikes". I guess we should be thankful that they are so few. Of course, now that there is no doubt that they have been exposed to the TRUTH, they are wholly responsible for their refusal to accept the TRUTH into their hearts. Kind of sad.

        • BrianusBerkleianus

          Yes indeed!!

    • Guest

      Thank you for your efforts. They were thoroughly appreciated!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        AMEN, JRD!!!

  • Escaped_Teleprompter

    Obama is Chicken Little.

    Obama seems to think that his job as President is not to lead the country but to run around, like Chicken Little, shouting that the sky is falling. For Obama, it is a never-ending series of crises.

    The latest sequestration crisis follows close on the heels of the fiscal cliff "crisis" barely a month ago. Never mind that sequestration will trim not even 1% of the budget, but only 1/3 of 1 per cent of the budget. Never mind that the Obama administration was an advocate for sequestration just last year. Now, according to Obama, sequestration is armageddon.

    This is what the country gets for electing a community organizer as President. Instead of getting a leader, the country got Chicken Little.
    .

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks, Escaped!! Actually, obama himself is the CRISIS for America. The Lord willing, with Sarah’s leadership, America will get through this dire crisis!! God bless!!

      • patnatasha

        Amen to that Brian.

    Good morning all.
    ————-

    Long before "crony capitalism" became a topic of national debate Gov. Palin has fought against corruption and crony capitalism.

    Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Gov. Palin’s agenda.

    Here are some links with information about Gov.Palin’s consistent fight against corruption and crony capitalism.
    —————————-

    ‘Institutionalizing Crony Capitalism’ (by Governor Palin)

    From the article:

    "We need to be on our guard against such crony capitalism. We fought against distortion of the market in Alaska when we confronted “Big Oil,” or more specifically some of the players in the industry and in political office, who were taking the 49th state for a ride.
    My administration challenged lax rules that seemed to allow corruption, and we even challenged the largest corporation in the world at the time for not abiding by provisions in contracts it held with the state. When it came time to craft a plan for a natural gas pipeline, we insisted on transparency and a level playing field to ensure fair competition.

    Our reforms helped reduce politicians’ ability to play favorites and helped clean up corruption. We set up stricter oversight offices and ushered through a bi-partisan ethics reform bill. Far from being against necessary reform, I embrace it. "

    ‘Crony Capitalism on Steroids from GE to Solyndra’ (by Governor Palin)

    From the article:

    "This crony capitalism and government waste is at the heart of our economic problems. It will destroy us if we don’t root it out. It’s not just a Democrat problem or a Republican problem. It’s a problem of our permanent political class."

    ‘Governor Palin’s Consistent Fight against Corruption and Crony Capitalism’ (by Whitney Pitcher)

    From the article:

    "Governor Palin’s strong stance against crony capitalism, bureaucrats picking winners and losers, and a lack of transparency is not just words; it’s action.

    Citizen candidates do indeed bring a fresh perspective to a campaign and even to public office. However, there is something to be said for someone who took on corruption while in elected office. Such an individual has governed or legislated in an atmosphere of corruption, back room deals, and cronyism and has not only weathered such an atmosphere, but has effected change for the better. It is one thing to act as a citizen watchdog; it is another to make sure that legislation and projects are transparent and are void of back room deals and crony capitalism. Governor Palin is such a person."

    ‘Some of Sarah Palin’s Ideas Cross the Political Divide’ (by Anand Giridharadas)

    From the article:

    "But something curious happened when Ms. Palin strode onto the stage last weekend at a Tea Party event in Indianola, Iowa. Along with her familiar and predictable swipes at President Barack Obama and the “far left,” she delivered a devastating indictment of the entire U.S. political establishment — left, right and center — and pointed toward a way of transcending the presently unbridgeable political divide."

    Gov. Palin’s successful efforts to stop the cronyism and reform the energy business in Alaska were so impressive Kay Cashman, the publisher and executive editor of Petroleum News, wrote the book entitled: “Sarah Takes On Big Oil” .

    This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the leadership Sarah Palin has exhibited in the area of reforming government and industry.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks and GOD BLESS for your faithful efforts, ZH. I noticed the hail of "dislikes" that your first post got yesterday. I guess these OBAMUNISTS do not have much taste for TRUTH!!

      • ZH100

        You are welcome, Brianus.

        I see the "dislikes" as a "badge of honor." :)

        • Guest

          So do I.

        • BrianusBerkleianus

          Amen!! :-) !!!

  • joseph agibinik

    I want to say thank-you to Sarah Palin and all of you here that support her. I am so frustrated with not knowing who I can trust in our own government. I am so frustrated with not knowing who I can trust in the news. I am so frustrated with not knowing who I can trust on the radio. Rand Paul…..I am so frustrated with myself that I thought I could trust you. Does anyone have principles anymore? If I believe in the right for you to be free…..the right to freedom of speech…..aaaargh! I don’t even know who in the gop is a republican or who is a rino…..who is gop establishment……Rand Paul, even if your vote did not change the outcome on Hagel, you should have voted no. I am curious to hear what Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have to say about your vote. Who is for freedom? Who is for our rights? Who stands for anything on anything? I am blessed to be born in the United States of America…..our government is corrupt…..who do you trust?

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thanks, Joseph!! I trust the Good Lord and Sarah … and I trust the instincts of millions of simple Americans who have the good sense and the intellectual, political, and spiritual perception and acumen to admire and love the Lady Warrior of Wasilla!!

    So Obama is letting loose illegal aliens in Arizona. Criminals on the loose. Including a man charged with child abuse.

    Is this a new version of Fast and Furious?

    • blueniner

      Gee I thought the first job of the President is to protect the homeland. This should be impeachable in itself.

      • conservativemama

        All while trying to take away our right to self-defense, our 2nd amendment rights.

        My husband, who’s not quite the firebrand I can be, although he is conservative, says Obama is untouchable. He seriously could do anything, anything, and he would still enjoy substantial support.

        If that’s true, we need an incredibly strong, clear voice to break through this trance.

        Palin, no one else.

    Oops: Pentagon Now Says TalibanAttacks Have Not Declined After All
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/oops-pentagon-now-says-taliban-attacks-have-not-declined-after-all

    When your priority is the self-esteem of the radical jihadists at the
    expense of the lives of your own troops, as evinced by the inordinate increase
    in military deaths on the Imam Obama’s watch, in being forced to fight a PC war
    where the word "terrorist" is verboten, your enemies, Obama’s
    friends, see what your real intent is, and are grateful for their ally in the
    White House who hates America as much if not more than they do!

    Sequester ‘Not Fair,’ Says the President Who Signed Off On It
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/sequester-not-fair-says-president-who-signed-it

    The sociopathic serial liar that is Obama is beyond despicable in his attempts to con the brain-dead that he actually has their best interests at heart when, in fact, "The Thing" in the White House is a monster movie that is the REAL DEAL where the creature is devouring every vestige of a free America, which is a seminal fact that is eventually going to catch up to Obama’s drones once they realize, after they stop doing crack before breakfast, lunch, and dinner, that they were nothing more than useful dupes that Comrade Obama will discard in a heartbeat as the only thing that Obama really cares about is the reflection in his mirror!

    In Europe, Kerry Says U.S. ‘Pivot’ to Asia Won’t Come at Europe’s Expense
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/europe-kerry-says-us-pivot-asia-wont-come-europes-expense

    The world will soon catch on to the double-speak of the Walking Cadaver masquerading as Secretary of State reflecting the modus operandi of a sham Administration that they already know is a joke spouting meaningless words with no substance, which is not the message that what’s left of the free world needs to send to its enemies who want to bury it! The problem is that the biggest enemy of the free world right now is the Cadaver’s employer.

    One might rightfully ask "Just where is this military that is going to be able to fulfill all of these promises that Kerry is making, a military that Obama despises which is in the process of being hollowed out by materially and morally disarming it in the face of America’s enemies, Obama’s friends, arming to the teeth, as evinced by the recent appointment of Hagel as Secretary of NO Defense?"

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Thank you, as always, stlouisix!!

    Americans born and raised to fear God, love freedom, take another hit below the belt. Rand Paul given a deal, true colors come out .. in the wake of Scott "here in my home state" = viscous attacks on our liberty, freedom to debate and make sound decisions, freedom to do what we desire with our hard earned cash. (Not a good day.)

    How many more are in our path to restoring all that is good ? I suspect they will continue until we show up at the ballot box like never before, vote the bums out.
    This is not a joke, dress rehearsal, bad dream, or something we ever witnessed in America. They are winning, yea thanks to people like Rove, Rand Paul, Scott, Rubio, many others. Rinos ..

    Will it matter ? yes it will make us stronger, smarter, press the urgency button. All the pieces will come together, they always do. The constant is, we are born, raised here, enough is enough, ordinary citizens will continue to come together in many places to sort it out.

    It,s possible, if we come together, zero in on one goal, debate and stop the madness, hold our elected officials accountable, enter new territory with your born, raised American neighbors, F .. do something, organize .. Sarah always said its not about her its about us.

    We can stop the below the belt hits, if we communicate on a local level, go to the meetings, turn off the TV, get off the computer, hit the streets locally .. OR PUT A FORK IN US WERE DONE .. HELLO ..

          Yes, "buy" is the operative word.

      • golfmom3

        And that’s where all his senate election money came from. As always, follow the money.

    • c4pfan

      But, we vote people in to represent us! Where do you go when all they do is turn around and do the opposite?

      • jester2939

        That’s the sad thing about where we find ourselves. Of course, the majority of Americans don’t know or care what’s going on, so it’s really easy for politicians to do the opposite of what they said on the campaign trail.

      • misterlogic0013
