Obama Is “Not Fit To Hold This Office”
Sarah Palin Says Barack Obama’s Recent Actions Are “Un-American”
This is why Palin is not bothered by the media attacks:
“Do not call conspiracy
everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.” Isaiah 8:12

I wish I could have watched all the standing ovations. This was hands down the best speech of CPAC 2012.
Full Speech: Sarah Palin at CPAC 2012

that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Sooooooooooooooo excited for CPAC this weekend… I thought of it 20 minutes before it started. So encouraging when I started the live play and they were in the middle of praying. WOOHOO!!!!
Looking forward to Sarah Palin! And lots of other great speakers.

Some of you will be told this year that you are expecting a disabled child. Your doctor will inform you of your options, including abortion. Life without regrets and let your child live. The difficulties you will face of having a special needs child will not compare with the painful memory of having killed the very child who needed you the most. Paraphrasing Rick Santorum, your baby “is worth every tear”.
Life With Trig: Sarah Palin on Raising a Special-Needs Child
“…When I discovered early in my pregnancy that my baby would be born with an extra chromosome, the diagnosis of Down syndrome frightened me so much that I dared not discuss my pregnancy for many months. All I could seem to muster was a calling out to God to prepare my heart for what was ahead. My prayers were answered beyond my shallow understanding of what true joy could be. Yes, raising a child with special needs is a unique challenge, and there’s still fear about my son Trig’s future because of health and social challenges; and certainly some days are much more difficult than if I had a ‘normal’ child.”
“Many everyday activities like doctor’s appointments and social gatherings and travel accommodations and even mealtimes and a solid night of sleep are that much more difficult, but at the end of the day I wouldn’t trade the relative difficulties for any convenience or absence of fear. God knew what he was doing when he blessed us with Trig. We went from fear of the unknown to proudly displaying a bumper sticker sent to us that reads: “My kid has more chromosomes than your kid!” He may not be the next Wayne Gretzky, but our hearts are filled with so much pride watching Trig giggle with his sisters’ puppies, or sway to the rhythm of his Little Angels DVDs, it’s as if he were hoisting the Stanley Cup…”
“…Trig is almost 4 years old now, and every morning when he wakes up, he pulls himself up, rubs the sleep out of his eyes, looks around, and then starts applauding! He welcomes each day with thunderous applause and laughter. He looks around at creation and claps as if to say, ‘OK, world, what do you have for me today?’”

The Six Dirty Secrets of Presidential Politics in 2012 By John Ziegler
“The voters who determine who wins our presidential elections are frighteningly lacking in even basic knowledge of the issues or the candidates…”
“…It is a myth that Fox News, talk radio, and the internet allow conservatives to get our truth out. In reality, at best, these outlets allow the previously converted to feel better about what they already believe. At worst, they provoke the other side into justifying a more overt bias in order to “balance” things out.”
“The ultimate example of this comes in the way the cable news networks have positioned themselves. MSNBC is far more left than FNC is to the right, and now, significantly left CNN is somehow allowed to be perceived to be in the “middle”…”
“Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Bill Maher, Saturday Night Live, and other “entertainment” outlets all have incredible power to create the narrative of a presidential election (just ask Palin), and they are highly unlikely to do so in a way that would ever harm Obama…”
“Even if the economy doesn’t improve (or at least provide enough data for the media to manipulate into making it seem as if it is), Obama has at least a 50% chance at reelection. This assessment may be shocking to many conservatives, but it is based on sound analysis.”
My brother pointed this out to me years ago:
“In my experience, the most universal misconception that conservatives have about politics is that most of those in the “conservative media” or those who are “activists” are motivated primarily because they believe in the cause… The vast majority of the decisions made in the conservative media and by activists are decided by business considerations rather than by what is best for the cause…”
“The Obama presidency has been a financial windfall for all of them. Fox’s ratings have never been higher, Drudge’s traffic has never been better (which is rather “ironic,” given how blatantly he protected Obama during the 2008 primaries), talk radio has been at least temporarily saved, and dozens of “Tea Party” groups have raised millions of dollars with which to line the pockets of their organizers and consultant friends. If Obama loses, not only does all of that stop, but the prospect of possibly eight long years of being “obligated” to support a rather boring Mitt Romney with no “boogieman” to attack must scare the daylights out of them…”

It begins: Radio ad asks Iowans to caucus for Palin

In case you don’t know American history, or only listen to mainstream media or heaven-forbid, CANADIAN television, please note that Obama’s speech yesterday, was full of LIES. I was actually shocked that Obama was so blatant in describing his beliefs and his deceptions. He knows the media is rooting for him.
Beck‘s Very Epic Analysis of Obama’s ‘New Nationalism’ Speech — ‘He Is Lying’
“During Wednesday’s episode of the Glenn Beck Program on GBTV, Glenn noted that while at the Fox News network, he was advised to never call the president a “liar” under any circumstances. The logic being that the public would prefer to hear that the president “misspoke” rather than believing he could lie…”

My kids knew enough to trash all their stupid participation trophies and awards long ago. Nothing to be proud of. The participation awards make the awards that they actually did earn not mean as much.
Sarah Palin: Barack Obama is a phony!
Carol | November 29, 2011
Conservatives are still trying to recruit Sarah Palin for President. She has been vetted more than any other political figure in history. She has come out squeaky clean. Republicans can be proud of her. She is a true conservative. Of the people. For the people.
Each of the GOP candidates rise, then with media help, they decline. I’m still waiting for the mainstream media to vet Obama. They don’t seem to go after Romney because I think they want him as the GOP leader. Cain has dug his own grave. You don’t have dinner alone with another woman. Ever. Just the perception of impropriety is unacceptable, but it is especially important for a Christian or public figure (except Clinton). Now it is Gingrich’s turn to rise in the polls. Will his past infidelity be forgiven? I don’t know.
It is hard to find someone these days with the whole package. Knowledge, morals, leadership, charisma. And isn’t every successful politician tall and reasonably good-looking with a big head?
Here is the new ad being run this week in Iowa.

Exclusive: Sarah Palin’s Thanksgiving Message
“…This need for selflessness – and the blessings that come with it – sharpened for me almost four years ago when I was given the gift of broader horizons, clarified priorities, and more commitment to justice and compassion for my fellow man who faces challenges and fears. I was granted this through a gift that arrived in a tiny, six-pound, awe-inspiring bundle. We named him Trig.”
“I know America’s potential for goodness, thus greatness, because I see it every day through my son. Nothing makes me happier or prouder than to see America’s good heart when someone smiles at my Trig. I notice it happens often in airports. Often a traveler passing by does a double-take when they see him, perhaps curious about the curious look on his face; perhaps my son momentarily exercises an uncontrollable motion that takes the passerby by surprise. Perhaps, as an innocent and candid child announced when she first met Trig, they think “he’s awkward.” But when that traveler pauses to look again and smile, and maybe tells me what a handsome boy I have, I swell with American pride. I am so thankful for their good heart. They represent the best in our country and their kindness shows the real hope we need today.”
“I am thankful that, as in so many areas of life, the bitter people who say bitter things about someone facing challenges are so outnumbered. There have been stinging criticisms, even from people still screaming that Trig should never have been born, but we know those critics may be the loudest and most malicious, but they’re not the majority.”
“To me, when individuals reflect the greater societal acceptance of someone facing challenges, they show the best of humanity – even by offering a simple pat on Trig’s head or a knowing smile shot our way. Conversely, when a society works to eliminate the “weakest links” (as some would callously consider the disabled) or “the unproductive” (as some would callously consider the very young and the very old), it eliminates the very best of itself. When a society seeks to destroy them, it also destroys any ability or need for sincere compassion, empathy, improvement, and even goodwill. And those are the very best qualities of humanity! Those are the characteristics of a country that understands and embraces true hope! America can be compassionate and strong enough as a nation to be entrusted with those who some see as an “inconvenience,” but who are really our greatest blessings. Through Trig, I see firsthand that there is man’s standard of perfection, and then there is God’s. Man’s standard is flawed, temporary, and shallow. God’s standard lasts an eternity. At the end of the day, His is what matters.”
“So, this Thanksgiving my family will bundle Trig up and grin while we watch him through ice-frosted eyelashes as he curiously takes in all that is around him in the crisp open air. I hope your Thanksgiving gives you the opportunity to find that reminder of what really matters, too. For me, my perfect picture of thankfulness is my perfectly awesome son. With him, all is well with my soul and I know I am blessed.”
