The Governor posted the following on Facebook:

I say it IS time we furlough the political consultants, the permanent political class, and the politicos who’ve been part of the problem that got us into this mess. Politicians, listen to your mother… or at least listen to these moms…

    Way to go Governor. Double down ruthlessly on the DC kleptocracy class. They are squealing up a storm.

    Good morning to all!

    "Now CPAC in order to be effective, in order to have any power to change things for the better, as Conservatives, we must leave no American behind and we must share our powerful message of freedom and liberty to all citizens, even those who may disagree on some issues because there is solid common ground in fighting against government overreach and for independence.

    And those who may disagree with us on some issues, they are not our enemies. They’re our sisters and our brothers. They’re our neighbors. They’re our friends.

    It’s imperative to reach out and to share that conservative message of liberty and less government and lower taxes and individual responsibility."—–Sarah Palin.

    Long before "public spending" became a topic of national debate Gov. Palin has fought to reduce spending and to enforce fiscal discipline as governor of Alaska.

    Some links with information about Gov.Palin’s (impressive) fiscal record.

      Sarah Palin: A Record of Fiscal Conservatism (Part 1)

      From the article:

      "Sarah Palin served as Mayor/City Manager of Wasilla, Alaska from October 14, 1996 to October 14, 2002. As such, Palin was responsible for preparing, submitting, and executing the City’s annual budget for fiscal years 1997 through 2003. During this seven-year period, the City’s General Fund averaged an annual surplus of roughly $2.5 million, as illustrated in the chart below. Palin inherited a surplus of just $350,000 from her predecessor John Stein (fiscal year 1996). By 2003 she had grown the surplus to almost $3 million, with a 22.4% increase in revenue and a 15.6% reduction in spending."

      Beautiful = this video. Thank you. Last night I had the privilege of discovering Marie Osmond singing "Nessun Dorma" on YouTube. Also a totally unexpected and overwhelming experience of artistic beauty.

        • hope4palins

          Sorry, here it is:

          If that doesn’t work, just google the four words Marie Osmond Nessun Dorma. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I love the tenor versions, but to hear this 50-something lady who is known for popular music sing this beautiful tenor aria with such passion and beauty in her own gorgeous soprano voice literally brought tears to my eyes.

            Thank you for that-surprisingly well done and memorable. M

    The more that I see of the terminal corruption of the GOP (i.e, Lady Pribus, gay marriage etc.) that happier I am that Cardinal Dolan found a way to bless both party conventions last year. Secular powers always do violence to God’s Church (i.e., the HHS mandate) and saints of all kinds must resist!

    Finally, some accuracy in reporting, and from NBC yet:

    “And in a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press, the largest news gathering outlet in the world, will no longer use the term ‘illegal immigrant.’ That is out. No longer ‘illegal immigrant.’ They will now use the phrase ‘undocumented Democrat.’ That is the newest – ‘undocumented Democrat.’”

      This fellow Avlon is like a numb nuts streaker who goes tearing across the diamond in a futile blaze of glory seeking his 15 minutes of fame. Breitbart tackled him in mid flight as he so richly deserved.

      But I’ll give him this much credit: if you are involved with an organization designed for futility, with no concrete agenda, no natural base of support, "stood up"in true Pelosian astroturf style with Van Jones/Soros money, with no principles, no ideas, with nothing to contribute and with no place to go and nothing to say to the nobody who is listening to you then you do what you have to do to get some attention.

      You sneak up on the biggest, baddest, toughest kid in the school right in the middle of recess and sucker punch her from behind. Then you stand there and get the crap knocked out of you.

      Guess what all the kids will be buzzing about during cookies and milk?

      Some Clinton advice for Mr. Avlon: stick some ice on it.

      This guy is using Troll tactics on cable TV. Any doubt that he down arrows in secret in his off time?

    Firing Reince Priebus is the First Step to Reform The Republican Party.

    Michael Steele was the Chairman of the Republican National Committee
    in November 2010 when the Republicans won a great election victory.
    Republicans triumphed, winning races from the courthouse, to the state
    legislatures, and the US House of Representatives. Nancy Pelosi was
    dethroned from her perch as House of Representative Majority leader.
    Sarah Palin and the Tea Party played a large role in these Republican
    victories. Sarah Palin endorsed twenty candidates for the House of
    Representative and eighteen of them won.

    These Republicans victories upset the Republican Establishment.
    Washington insider, Henry Barbour, plotted to have Michael Steele
    removed as the Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Michael
    Steele angered the Republican Establishment when he said, "The
    Republicans has "screwed up" for the most part since Ronald Reagan was

    Reince Priebus replaced Michael Steele. Reince Priebus has moved the
    Republican Party to the left. Priebus offered Madonna a million
    dollars to sing at the Republican National Convention. Madonna turned
    down the offer. Priebus worked diligently to get Mitt Romney chosen as
    the Republican candidate for President. Priebus told the Tea Party to
    go to hell, told Sarah Palin to go to hell and told the conservative base of the Republican Party that they could vote for Romney, but were not welcomed.

    The 2012 election campaign was a disaster. Millions were spent for
    paid consultants, Mitt Romney ran a lackluster campaign. The
    Romney-Ryan presidential campaign was probably the worst presidential
    campaign in the past hundred years.

    Reince Priebus is doubling down on the tactics that proved disastrous
    in 2012. Karl Rove is back in charged. The conservative base is not
    welcomed and RINO’s are given preferential treatment.

    Leave a message…

    Don’t you just love the PPC’s new catchphrase for stealing you blind? ‘Financial haircut’ sounds almost benign, doesn’t it?

    And you thought I was kidding you or a little daft when I suggested they were coming after your 401k’s a few weeks ago.

    Almost on cue you began to hear ‘Cyprus’, ‘bank holiday’ and their new phrase. Prescience? Nah. Just falls under the heading of ‘know your enemy’ and ‘follow the money’.

    The PPC has decided it’s time to pluck the goose that laid the golden egg. So ignore their words and watch their hands – especially that left one.

      Marc Faber nails it in this CNBC interview:

      Listen all the way to the end. This is the end game for the Marxist/Bankster coalition. This is how they are going to finally liquidate the Bourgeoisie here in America and in the Western Democracies.

      "Cyprus will happen everywhere in all the Western democracies."


      "There are more people who vote for a living than work for a living."

      "92% of the financial assets are owned by 2% of the people. Most people do not own stocks. Most people do not benefit from rising stock prices."

      ‘People who have financial assets are going to lose a portion of those assets either through outright expropriation as in Cyprus or through taxation."

      "They will be lucky not to lose their lives."

    I am sure you all have noticed that there already is a big push for Hillary in 2016. Loopy Matthews says that not since Eisenhower had there been someone with as good a resume for President as Hillary. The Biden lauds her last night. The media constantly asks Bill if she plans on running and he certainly provides the clue they want that she will be. Considering that her only competition looks like Biden at this point, which is no competition really, it seems like a sure thing. Who else do they have? Cuomo may be interested after one term as Governor of New York but there really is no one else. I mean the media even floated out the dream team of Hillary/Michelle based on the idea that being the President’s wife makes you qualified. It really is very pathetic.

    One interesting thing about it though is if it looks like Hillary will win the nomination, can the GOP beat her with anyone else than Sarah? Can the GOP defeat another history making election with the first woman President without their own woman candidate? I do not think that would be possible. Maybe the GOP needs to consider that fairly early on in their dealings with Sarah. Of course, it could very well be true that the GOP really is not concerned with winning. We will see.

    But can you imagine the contrast between those two women in every way. The old hag vs. the forever young beauty; The confirmed progressive vs. the Constitutional conservative; The no accomplishment resume with no executive experience vs. the accomplished Governor with extensive executive experience; The Bill and Hill fraud show vs. The real American family; etc

      For me, I will do all I can to cut Hillary’ down to size for being the poster child of weakness who creates a false facade of strength to ameliorate her unwillingness to act in a mature and proper manner to the spousal abuse and humiliation Bill has caused herself and daughter their entire lives.

      She posses serious character flaws that can be traced to this elephant in the room where her private life as Bill’s doormat holds the answers to her defeat in 2016

      Walmart moms is a marketing tool.

      "In 2008, Public Opinion Strategies identified Walmart Moms as a key "swing voter" sub?group. As the 2010 election started to heat up, Walmart was curious as to whether moms shopping at their stores were still an "up?for?grabs" voting bloc, so Public Opinion Strategies and Momentum Analysis tracked this important sub?group (roughly 14?17% of the electorate) from May 2010 thru the election. As the election came to a close, it was clear Walmart Moms – who were critical to Democratic success in 2008 — had once again proven to be a swing vote in the 2010 election. In May 2010, the majority of these moms approved of the job President Obama was doing, they wanted more government intervention and they were evenly split in their partisan affiliation. At that time they were also split on their choice for Congress, just tilting very slightly towards voting Republican in November. However, as election season wore on, Walmart Moms eventually broke with their 2008 Democratic allegiances and pulled the lever for Republicans last year."

  • suedixon

    Sarah I agree. we need a conservative women’s march on D.C. and across the country to show the good ole boys and gals we along with Sarah know how to budget and multi-task. Furthermore we are not afraid to stand up for what we believe in and and won’t melt if the lame stream media doesn’t like us.

  • suedixon

    we should follow the advice of Sarah Palin and the late John F. Kennedy when he said "Let us not seek the republican answer or the democrat answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibilities for the future." This was posted by a fellow high school student on face book. too bad the empty suit didn’t get this message about blaming the past.
