Cruz, Paul and Palin CPAC 2014 Speeches


Palin, Rand & Cruz

I listened to Senator Ted Cruz at CPAC via an email a few days ago. I THOUGHT I saved that email because it also had commentary text that I enjoyed as well. I was getting ready to construct a post of the CPAC speakers I was interested and to my dissatisfaction I somehow lost that email. So this is what I am going to do.

 

I found the Youtube versions to Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Sarah Palin. I am going to post Senator Cruz, Senator Paul and ending with Sarah Palin. In the Palin CPAC speech I going to include a WND article in which I originally viewed Sarah Palin’s CPAC appearance. The difficulty with WND is they use their own video format which most of my blogs do not accept; hence I am replacing the WND version with a Youtube version.

 

Enjoy!

PALIN: ‘THIS IS A GREAT AWAKENING’

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – “I have never been more optimistic about the future. The best is yet to come.”

 

Sarah Palin ended on that soaring high note, bringing the crowd to its feet for the umpteenth time in a speech that radiated with hope and an optimism that the dawn of a new era of conservatism is here.

 

The former U.S. vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor also offered her own version of hope and change, assuring conservatives, “This is the stirring of a great awakening. The age of Obama is almost over. The end of an ‘error.’ He is the lamest of lame ducks.”

 

As the closing speaker at CPAC, the annual convention of conservatives just outside of Washington, “Mama grizzly” delivered some political red meat to her adoring cubs, offering a dazzling array of one-liners.

 

She explained how a catchy slogan became an alarming reality as “Yes, we can” became “No, you can’t.”

 

“No, you can’t log onto the Obamacare website. No, you can’t keep your health care. No, you can’t make a phone call without being spied upon.” And without Michelle Obama learning that you ordered a pizza for a third time in a week.

 

Palin said President Obama’s foreign policy had been reduced to dialing real fast with his phone and threatening to poke Russian President Vladimir Putin with his pen.

 

“But, I’m probably being too hard on the president,” she said before delivering a line that brought the house down: “After all, who could have seen this coming?”

 

That was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the fact she predicted in 2008, accurately, as it turned out, that Putin would feel free to invade Ukraine should Obama be elected, a statement that was widely ridiculed in the mainstream media.

 

She also observed that Obama’s policy of “leading from behind only leads to some very bad dudes gaining ground.”

 

When it came to the GOP’s so-called war on women, Palin claimed, on the contrary, Republicans “recognize the potential of every women so much that we’re the party that respects every sister, even the littlest ones in the womb.”

 

But Palin didn’t restrict her fire to Democrats; she also had some words of warning for Republican leaders.

 

“GOP beltway boys – you know the 2010 victory that swept the GOP into power – you didn’t build that, the tea party did it.”

 

She told the GOP elite if they want another sweep, “Grab a broom and join the party. There are not enough low-information voters to save the other side this time, if we don’t retreat.”

 

Palin’s immense optimism was laced with more warnings for Republicans.

 

“This is the stirring of a great awakening. I do feel the eyes of America are open. Unfortunately, some would want you to just hit the snooze button and roll back over. Like, ‘Hush America, go back to sleep little lamb, go back to sleep. Close those eyes.’ Some of these folks are in the GOP establishment.

 

She chided GOP leaders for thinking the smart thing was to “lay back, stay out of the way” while Obamacare crashed and the economy came to a stop.

 

“Some GOP experts say don’t interrupt the opposition while they are destroying themselves. But you do interrupt when they are destroying the country.”

 

The crowd wasn’t satisfied to give that line just a standing ovation. They broke out in a chant of “Run Sarah, Run.”

 

Palin delivered a stunning response: “I should run.”

 

But then, she deadpanned, “I didn’t get to run this morning,” changing the crowd’s cheers to sudden laughter.

 

Taking the attention away from herself, she said, “We’ve got good guys” in Washington, mentioning Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Mike Lee, R-Utah and Rand Paul, R-Ky, all of whom she endorsed when they were underdogs.

 

But, she said, “It’s time we send them reinforcements.”

 

She credited Cruz with igniting what she called a great awakening in America when he filibustered to try to defund Obamacare, an effort in which Lee and Paul provided strong support.

 

Palin said the Cruz filibuster “worked in waking people up to the folly of the government taking over a sixth of the economy.”

 

She said it “told his colleagues it was time – time to stand up. Time to use the tools of the Constitution, the power of the purse, to fulfill their campaign promises and to stop Obamacare.”

 

The mother of five also congratulated Cruz on his use of Dr. Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham” as a way to show he cared about the future of his own children and all the children in America.

 

Palin playfully offered her own, revised version of the story, that she said she now tells her son, Trig.

 

“I do not like this Uncle Sam,
I do not like his health care scam.
I do not like these dirty crooks
or how they lie and cook the books.
I do not like when Congress steals,
I do not like their crony deals.
I do not like this spying, man.
I do not like, ‘Oh, yes, we can.’
I do not like this spending spree,
we’re smart, we know nothing’s free.
I do not like reporters’ smug replies
when I complain about their lies.
I do not like this kind of hope
and we won’t take it, nope, nope, nope.”

Sarah Palin shames ‘lamestream’ media …


Sarah-Palin-at-Liberty-Convocation

 

Sarah Palin issued a scathing statement against the Mainstream Media (MSM) whom she labels the Lamestream Media for not publicizing the Obama Administration’s intent to send monitors to News Rooms to watch their activity. The FCC has backed off from this fascist/Commie plan.

Sarah Palin shames ‘lamestream’ media: You wake the hell up when ‘Obama’s boot is on your neck’

 

By Tom Tillison

February 23, 2014

BIZPAC Review

 

In the wake of the news that the Federal Communications Commission backed off on its controversial study of American newsrooms, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used her standard Facebook perch Friday to go after the media for its selective outrage.

 

Pulling no punches, Palin shamed the “lamestream” media for failing to “wake the h*ll up” until President Obama had his boot on their necks.

 

Garbage collector’s patriotic gesture brings resident to tears [Blog Editor: This link has nothing to do with this Sarah Palin story but this link was placed in the original story and you may find it interesting.]

 

Her comment, in it’s (sic) entirety:

 

“What? Lamestream calls for empathy, even outrage, for a First Amendment violation that’s on par with all the abuse we’ve brought to your attention as Obama stomps on our Constitution. You’ve IGNORED us, you’ve marginalized us, you’ve left us for ‘destroyed.’ But when Obama’s boot is on YOUR neck you finally wake the h*ll up and cry foul? Good Lord.”

 

Palin included a link to a Breitbart article about America dropping from 33rd to 46th in the World Press Freedom Index, with author Ben Shapiro pointing out that “the violation of press freedoms has been egregious under this administration.”

 

The harsh commentary from Palin not only reflects an understanding of how important a free press is to our form of government, but gives every indication that she vividly recalls the despicable way she has been treated by the media.

Palin Endorses Pierson for Texas District 32


Katrina Pierson endorsed by Sarah Palin

John R. Houk

© February 25, 2014

 

I am a supporter of Sarah Palin. Because of my support my interest is always piqued when she endorses someone. I wish Palin would run for public office but as time slips on by that is becoming more and more unlikely. With the beginning of endorsements for the 2014 election cycle it increases my reasoning that Palin will announce any kind of candidacy for the time being.

 

It has come to my attention Sarah Palin has endorsed Katrina Pierson Republican Tea Party candidate to run against in the tank for Obamacare and the Obama agenda incumbent Republican Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas 32nd District for the House of Representatives.

 

The Lame Stream Media and the Republican Establishment must be worried because are in character assassination mode toward Tea Party activist Pierson. An article in the Texas Observer relating a Slate article that brought out some data showing Pierson was receiving unemployment funds while she was consulting for Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign.

 

The picture painted is that Katrina Pierson must be a Tea Party hypocrite for taking government money for being (what?) unemployed. Now who has been in our nation’s Executive Office for nearly 6 years with little to no improvement in the U.S. economy or unemployment stats for better or worse depending on the scrubbed numbers provided by the White House?

 

The picture also painted is Pierson may have done something illegal while receiving unemployment benefits while consulting for Senator Ted Cruz. Since the Texas Observer article does not mention if Pierson received compensation from the Cruz campaign I am guessing there was nothing illegal there. Even if there was consulting beneficiary for Pierson I suspect it would have to substantial enough to be considered employment rather than doing odd jobs while waiting for a job compensatory to her former employment. After the article talked about her activism as a Tea Party advocate and being a spokesperson against U.N. Agenda 21 as if that is a crazy nut thing to do as Leftists would have you believe. Since only crazy people would be against the U.N. stepping on U.S. sovereignty telling Americans and making rules for Americans to manage their own land whether for agriculture or some kind of natural resource usage.

 

It’s hard not to think that more than a few of Pierson’s fellow conservatives might be bothered by the prospect that their tax dollars were subsidizing her full-time activism—they would certainly be furious if a Battleground Texas organizer did the same. I wouldn’t argue that the jobless should cease their political activity, but Pierson’s supporters might. Sessions, for his part, called a potential federal extension of unemployment benefits “immoral” just last week.

 

Pierson’s primary challenge to Sessions has been pretty much the only credible tea party primary challenge to an incumbent representative this cycle, so her failure to launch has really been something. Pierson has seemed to flounder, despite her ties to Ted Cruz’s 2012 campaign (and the endorsement of both Cruz’s father, Rafael, and Sarah Palin,) and her high profile in the activist community. She hasn’t been able to draw on the resources that might help make her candidacy viable—Sessions had accumulated over 20 times Pierson’s campaign cash at the end of January.

 

Sessions is conservative, make no mistake about it. But in his nearly two decades in Washington, he’s accumulated a thick layer of grime. He was an associate of both Jack Abramoff and Allen Stanford. In a comic example of congressional excess, Sessions once earmarked $1.6 million dollars for “dirigible research” by an Illinois company that employed a former aide as a lobbyist. (The company had no previous experience with dirigibles.) (The Katrina Pierson Bubble Bursts; By Christopher Hooks; Texas Observer; 2/24/14 at 9:35 CST)

 

In one breath the article author Hooks tells us to “make no mistake” that Sessions is a Conservative but has had money scandals with Jack Abramoff, Allen Stanford and sending $1.6 million bucks to an Illinois dirigible company that employed a former Sessions aid. Hooks also fails to mention that Sessions’ Conservative bona fides is questionable with the Congressman’s support of Obamacare. Pete Sessions is only Conservative enough to try to look good to his 32nd District voters. When it comes to the issues that it is time to put his so-called Conservative foot down Sessions tows the Republican Establishment line.

 

I am looking at Katrina Pierson’s candidacy because of a Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) email promoting her with publicizing Sarah Palin’s endorsement. I am cross posting the email below because it has quoted Palin on the endorsement. You should know that this email was sent on 2/23/14. I am telling you this because there is a time sensitive request for funding a pro-Pierson TV ad that provides a deadline for the 24th. Of course that deadline has passed as of this post but I am sure the CCC would still accept targeted donations for Katrina Pierson. I probably should ad that the CCC is a Tea Party organization that probably is not directly affiliated with the Pierson campaign.

FANTASTIC:  Sarah Palin Makes Powerful Endorsement

 

Sent by Conservative Campaign Committee

Sent: 2/23/2014 7:48 PM

 

There was big news for conservatives this week:  Governor Sarah Palin made her 1st endorsement of the 2014 election cycle, and she chose to endorse Conservative Republican Katrina Pierson for Congress!

 

Here’s what Gov. Palin had to say in her endorsement of Pierson:

 

“Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement.  Her life’s story is full of hardship she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.

 

A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms.

 

When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson.

 

Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.”

 

The election takes place less than 2 weeks from now, so time is of the essence. 

We are now preparing our first TV ad buy in support of Katrina Pierson, and we must raise $7,315 by tomorrow in order to pay for this ad buy.  You can help us reach this goal by making a contribution - HERE.

 

We need 67 people to contribute $100 or more by tomorrow morning if we are going to reach our goal.  To contribute $100 or more online - CLICK HERE.

 

Katrina Pierson served on the steering committee of the Dallas Tea Party for 5 years, is founder of the Garland Tea Party, and was a member of the Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee.  She has been fighting in the trenches for conservative causes for years!

 

What is perhaps most inspiring about Katrina Pierson’s life story is the passion and determination she has shown in making her life a success story.  You see, Katrina grew up on welfare to a teenage mother.  Instead of falling into a life of government-dependency, Katrina was determined to make something of her life and applied hard work and determination to pursue the American Dream.

 

Pierson has been an advocate for conservative policies and challenged the establishment of both the Republican and Democrat parties.  You’ve no doubt seen her on Fox News Channel fighting for the conservative movement.  Here is a screen grab of her during one such appearance on Fox News with Neil Cavuto:

 

Cavuto-Pierson Fox News Screen Capture

Cavuto-Pierson Fox News Screen Capture

 

That’s why Katrina Pierson has been endorsed by Governor Sarah Palin, the Tea Party Express, FreedomWorks, the Conservative Campaign Committee, the Republican Liberty Caucus, the American Gun Rights organization, the conservative SHE-PAC organization (sic), Michelle Malkin, Rafael Cruz (Ted Cruz’s father), Joe The Plumber and conservatives across the nation.

 

Ted Cruz has heaped praise on Pierson, calling her:  “An utterly fearless principled conservative” and Cruz praised Pierson with good reason.  You see, Katrina Pierson was one of the leading campaigners for Ted Cruz, helping him to get elected to the U.S. Senate:

 

Katrina Pierson Campaigned for Ted Cruz photo

It’s not just that Katrina Pierson is so great, but her opponent – incumbent Congressman Pete Sessions – needs to be ousted from Congress.   Sessions bad-mouthed the effort to defund and repeal ObamaCare, with Sessions saying “we do not want to stop it.”

 

But guess what Pete Sessions has stopped?  He’s blocked the Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist scandal including the lies and deceptions being promulgated by the Obama administration.

 

This key Midterm Election takes place March 4th – less than one month away, so we must get to work right now to win this campaign for Conservative Republican Katrina Pierson.

 

You can support our independent expenditure campaign supporting Katrina Pierson by making a contribution online – HERE.

 

You can contribute as little as $5 up to the maximum allowed contribution of $5,000.  To kick off our campaign we need 200 people to make a contribution of $100 or more within the next 24 hours.  If you can afford to make a contribution of $100 or more - PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Sarah Palin’s Take on Kerry’s Treatment of Israel

Israel is once again feeling the brunt of the Obama administration’s enemy centric foreign policy. First, Secretary Kerry put our ally Israel in an untenable position with the deal he brokered with Iran over its nuclear ambitions, then he suggested that Israel could face “delegitimization” and “boycott” campaigns if it didn’t agree on the Obama administration’s idea of a peace deal with the Palestinians, and now he’s denouncing Israel for building homes in a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem. The Israelis are quite appropriately upset about the treatment they’ve received from Kerry. And how has the Obama administration responded? Well, National Security Advisor and former UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on Twitter to chastise Israel for criticizing Kerry! What is this – junior high school diplomacy? What next – using Facebook to “unfriend” Israel? Isn’t it about time for the Obama administration to remember who our friends are and to treat them like friends?

Sarah Palin v Mark Begich

I’m not really big on donating for political campaigns when there are no announced Conservative candidates to oppose a liberal incumbent. The Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) has sprouted up to support Conservative candidates nationwide and rightfully so. I believe the CCC is an offshoot of the Tea Party Express which is an organization I follow so often I probably should join. In the 2012 election cycle the CCC went by Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama. If you Google that you will be directed to the CCC website.

 

Anyway the CCC sent a donation teaser recently that showed a war of words between Sarah Palin and Democrat Alaskan Senator Mark Begich. Begich must defend his incumbency in the 2014 election cycle.

 

There is a draft Sarah Palin for Senate move going around the nation. And now I read on Yahoo News that Sarah Palin is moving toward the idea of running for the Senate in Alaska.

 

And so the CCC donation tease is significant for those of us who believe that Sarah Palin is needed in leadership in the United States of America.

Defeat Mark Begich banner

 

ABC News has news headlines today about the war of words that has developed between Gov. Sarah Palin and Democrat Alaska Senator, Mark Begich.

 

And Sarah Palin’s comments couldn’t be more on the mark.  Here’s what she said today about Begich’s awful record as a failed liberal – harming this nation as he continuously sides with Barack Obama:

 

“Mark, after looking at your voting record I can see why you are looking for a distraction. You have voted FOR Obamacare, FOR massive tax increases, FOR carbon taxes which could cost Alaskans 21,000 jobs, AGAINST pro-life legislation, and there’s so much more. You even flip-flopped to oppose the nation’s balanced budget amendment.

 

“You agree with, and vote with, ultra-liberal Senators Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid approximately 90% of the time. Mark, you recently said, “Alaskans pick who they want based on what’s good for Alaska.” Couldn’t agree more, Mark, which is why many hope to see great changes for our great state following the upcoming 2014 election.”

 

Democrat Mark Begich must be defeated – he voted for Obama’s stimulus.  He voted for ObamaCare.  He has announced that he favors further expansion of ObamaCare.  That’s why we’ve launched an Independent Expenditure campaign to “Defeat Mark Begich,” and we need your help!

 

Winning this seat is critical to our efforts to electing a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate and ousting Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader.  We know that Reid and the Democrats will spend whatever they can to make sure we are not successful.  So we need everyone’s support for our campaign to “Defeat Mark Begich.”

Palin: I’m Open to Starting New Political Party

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she’s willing to start a new political party to create a home for conservatives who feel they’re being ignored by the GOP.

The one-time vice presidential nominee was answering Twitter questions on Fox News Saturday, when a user asked if she and Fox conservative commentator Mark Levin would be willing to build a “Freedom Party if [the] GOP continues to ignore conservatives.”

Palin replied, “I love the name of that party: the Freedom Party,” she replied. “And if the GOP continues to back away from the planks in our platform, from the principles that built this party of Lincoln and Reagan, then yeah.”

Palin It’s Time to Run for Higher Office


Sarah Palin Patriot

John R. Houk

© June 17, 2013

 

I am an undying follower of Sarah Palin. As a Vice Presidential candidate in 2008 she was more qualified to be President than the Chicago thuggery politics of one term Senator Barack Hussein Obama.

 

In 2008 Obama campaigners and the MSM fabricated lying sludge about Palin’s family, made Palin’s faith to be extremist and portrayed her to be ignorant on Foreign Policy issues. The sludge was lying misinformation! The MSM tried to portray the Pentecostal Assembly of God Christianity as Right Winger backwoods morons not worthy to hold a National Office because Pentecostals speak in tongues, believe in the Bible and trust in guns as a 2nd Amendment Right! Palin was as knowledgeable on Foreign Policy as one term Senator Obama in 2008 and yet no one in the MSM challenged Obama’s Foreign Policy agenda. The last four or five years of Obama Foreign Policy (and Domestic Policy for that matter) demonstrates how ignorant President Barack Hussein Obama is in leading our government to the benefit of our National Interests and National Security. Obama’s entire Domestic and Foreign Policy is conducted in such a way to squelch Conservative opposition and to hide Obama Leftist idiocy from voters so that they are deceived into believing Obama is a benevolent leader for America’s poor and multiculturalists insisting in maintaining a non-American culture rather than assimilating as past immigrants had done.

 

I was horribly disappointed that Sarah Palin did not run for President in 2012; however in hindsight she made the correct decision. Clearly the Establishment Republicans that run the Party apparatus were NOT about to give any help to Tea Party Conservatives that might rock the Establishment boat or made a verbal glitch like Todd Akin in Missouri. Akin led in the polls against incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill until the Leftists made an issue about Akin’s thoughts on abortion and rape. Akin fell for the trap when he believed unverified info that rape victims’ biology claims up from being impregnated by a rapist. Instead of coming to Akin’s aid with a viable PR effort the Republican Establishment threw Akin under the bus and agreed with the Dem Party narrative against Akin. The result was a poll leading Akin was defeated in a huge way by incumbent Claire McCaskill.

 

I am convinced Establishment Republicans told Sarah they wanted a candidate that portrayed an image of being a Moderate. Hence Center-Left Mormon Mitt Romney was practically given the Yellow Brick Road to the GOP nomination while Palin saw this handwriting on the wall and Conservatives like Michele Bachmann were disdained and former Senator Rick Santorum, Speaker Newt Gingrich and businessman Herman Cain that had Conservative trappings but a bit of some Left Wing baggage or in the case of Cain of personal scandal were cut out so that Establishment friendly Romney won the nomination.

 

Let us pray that Sarah Palin reenters public life hopefully as a Senator. Any mud thrown her way this time can be repulsed by simply saying, “Look at the corruption of the Obama Administration that many Republicans warned about AND you are still trying to defame me?” Like who was the idiot and the liar? It definitely was not Sarah Palin!

 

I have read many draft Palin for the Senate articles and I have even signed at least one petition urging Palin to run for the Senate. Below is an article from Lloyd Marcus urging Palin to run for Office sent to me as an email but is a post on the Tea Party Nation.

The Gladiator: Sarah Palin We Need You Back in the Arena.

 

By Lloyd Marcus

June 16, 2013 at 9:26am

Tea Party Nation

 

Hello, calling Sarah Palin! Has anyone seen her? Where is she? Has Sarah Palin left the building? Is the Palin magic gone forever? No. The Palin charisma and mass appeal is still alive and well.

 

Certain people are born gifted with “It”; something that compels you to watch them. Sarah Palin is one such individual. Though politically tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail by the Left and a few spineless Republicans, I pray for the day when my favorite gladiator Sarah Palin returns to the arena.

 

Unquestionably, the vitriolic attacks on Palin and her family, the betrayals by Republicans and associates left Palin severely wounded. Who among us could endure and survive the full weight of the MSM launched to destroy you? It is quite understandable and reasonable if Palin were to say, Forget this. Todd and I are goin’ fishin’.

 

But, the Bible says to whom much is given, much is required. While Palin has not reported seeing a burning bush, I believe Sarah Palin has been called for such a time as this. I pray she will feel lead to return to Rome (Washington DC) to fight in the arena. At the moment, there is no one in the national arena who inspires the masses to follow and act on their convictions in mass like Palin.

 

Please allow me to re-share my personal testimony of the “Palin Effect”. With Sarah Palin as the keynote speaker, Tea Party Express launched one of it’s tours in Searchlight, NV, a small dust bowl town. Twenty-five thousand people showed up, RVs parked everywhere because many arrived days early to stake out their spot.

 

From inside our Tea Party Express tour bus as we approached the site, I saw seniors parked a mile away making their way to the event using walkers. It gave me goosebumps. Obviously, this woman, Sarah Palin, represented the America they loved and feared was slipping away.

 

Despite all of the scandals, lies, outrageous government overreaches and abuses of our civil liberties under this administration, Obama still gets a pass in the minds of far too many ill-informed Americans. Decades of dumbing down students have produced exactly what the Left wants, sheep totally dependent on government – clueless regarding U.S. History and the cost and value of freedom.

 

So, Obama can ignore the Constitution and do whatever he pleases as long as the food stamps, disability checks, welfare checks and free phones keep coming. Under Obama, an unprecedented half of the country is eating, talking on their phones and driving without working for it – a Democratic party dream come true.

 

I asked friends at dinner, “How did Ronald Reagan win in a landslide touting Conservatism? Jerry Falwell and his Moral Majority was said to have figured in the mix. Americans, for the most part, are a moral and just people. I believe Reagan touting values which spoke to the hearts and minds of decent people is what inspired Americans to be all they could be.

 

I was a 20 something year old black kid from the East Baltimore projects back then. I knew nothing about politics. All I knew was that every-time I heard President Reagan speak, I felt good about my country and myself. Reagan made me feel I could achieve and contribute to this wonderful country in which I was blessed to be born called America.

 

Where are the voices inspiring folks to love and contribute to the greatness of their country? I know, I know. Such talk sounds corny and naïve today. In Obama’s America, signing up for government assistance and approving of government confiscating the earnings of high achievers for redistribution is the new definition of compassion and patriotism.

 

Even being proud of our country is now considered to be a bad thing under Obama. When outside of the U.S. Obama continuously apologizes for who we are – furthering the narrative that the world has too little because we have too much. Amazingly, Reagan saw this mindset coming and warned us.

 

We need a hero folks – someone willing to stand up for America, boldly waving our flag and touting the virtues of hard work, self-reliance, family, God and country. I believe Sarah Palin can pull it off.

 

Reading my own words sound a bit corny even to me. Folks, have we become so cynical, so tainted that asking Americans to strive for goodness and righteousness rather than becoming permanent government welfare recipients is an outdated impossible dream of the past?

 

Sarah Palin, please come back. Run for office. We long to cheer you on as our gladiator in the arena.

United State Senator Sarah Palin


Sarah Palin - Draft for Senate

It is about time for Sarah Palin to enter a political office again. I was praying she would have run for President in 2012. Her decision not to run was a huge disappointment to me and many other Palin supporters.

 

NOW there is a draft Palin for the Senate in her home State of Alaska because the current Dem Party Senator Mark Begich would receive less than 50% of the vote according to The Tea Party Leadership Fund.

United State Senator Sarah Palin

Do the words “Senator Sarah Palin” excite you?

If we do our job, they could become reality.

You see, recent polling in the 2014 Alaska U.S. Senate Race shows incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Begich with less than 50% of the vote, and a clear path for Sarah to win. This means the only thing that is standing in her way is deciding to run, and that’s why we’re launching a petition today to draft her for the Republican nomination.

You and I both know that Sarah Palin is a fighter who will stand up to Harry Reid and his pals in the Senate to protect our Constitution on issues like amnesty, gun control, and our nation’s crushing debt. We know that, with Sarah in the Senate, conservatives across America can rest a little easier at night knowing that she’s at the watch.

That’s why it’s so important that you join with me in signing our petition to draft Sarah Palin for Alaska’s U.S. Senate seat.

As Karl Rove and the “Republican” campaign establishment prepare to spend hundreds of millions defeating the Tea Party in primaries next fall, campaign insiders know what they’re really afraid of–they’re not afraid of gaffes, they’re not afraid of weak candidates, and they’re not afraid of losing.

They’re afraid of those who stand up for our liberties;

of those who stand up when everyone else sits down;

of those who refuse to water down our Constitution with the “Democrat lite” message currently curried by the establishment.

Basically, they’re afraid of Sarah Palin.

At this year’s CPAC, Sarah knew this and took it to heart, rejecting the establishment and imploring all Tea Party Americans to stick to our guns and support the candidates who truly embrace our first principles. Even when it was unpopular, Sarah supported true patriots like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, and now it’s time that we throw our support behind her.

That’s why I need you to sign our petition today to draft Sarah to run in the upcoming U.S. Senate race in Alaska. Will you visit this link and join me in signing it?

When you think about it, Senator Sarah Palin just makes sense.

Who would be better to stand up, simultaneously, to the hyper-liberal arrogance of Harry Reid and the cool indifference of the establishment to our values? Who would be better to stand arm-in-arm with Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in defense of our Constitution?

The answer, of course, is Sarah, the proven Maverick who stood up to the special interests in Alaska and has been a tireless advocate for our Tea Party values ever since her introduction to the national stage.

So will you stand with her by signing our petition to draft her into the U.S. Senate and, after signing, consider making a contribution so that we have the resources necessary to back her up if she needs it?

Visit this link and add your signature to our petition.

The establishment declared war against the Tea Party long ago, and election day is only getting closer. It’s 100% crystal clear that Karl Rove and his loser buddies will stop at nothing to make sure we lose.

Let’s show them we’re serious about fighting back by drafting Sarah Palin. Visit this link and sign our petition today.

Sincerely,

Todd Cefaratti
Freedom Organizer

P.S. What better way is there to show the establishment we mean business than to nominate Sarah Palin for U.S. Senate? By signing our petition, you can make a bold statement that you’re tired of the wishy-washy sellout establishment and ready to put a real leader in the Senate chamber. Visit this link, sign your name to our petition, and tell Sarah that you’re ready for her.

Rally Around the Sarah Palins of America


Scottie Nell Hughes 2

Scottie Hughes

A few days ago Tea Party journalist Scottie Hughes was critical of Sarah Palin after her CPAC speech as being a rousing speaker but lacking in Conservative work to get the ball moving on a Conservative agenda to offset America’s Leftists.

 

An Open Letter to Sarah Palin

 

You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people of whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.

 

But at CPAC last week you made a rush for the exits. After you gave an inspiring speech where you said to a thrilled audience, “At a time when our country is desperate for leadership, we get instead a permanent campaign”. Instead of coming out and shaking the hands of those who you inspire, you quickly left the building without even a second glance.

 

You called out the liberal media as being unashamed, so at least you took notice of them. Not so for those of us on the right who had hoped that the woman from Wasilla, Alaska might understand our plight and give us a chance to engage one of the top names in the movement.

 

We were, to put it bluntly, disappointed. And while I wish this was a solo occurrence, unfortunately this seems to be your pattern.

 

I know we in the Tea Party movement don’t throw the best parties or live the most glamorous lives, but we are the ones who faithfully donated to the McCain campaign once you joined the ticket. We are the ones who defended you publicly when the liberal media made fun of you and when your own campaign advisors turned on you. We are the ones who add you and your family to our prayers every night at bedtime.

 

Yet it seems those in Hollywood who have made their money making you the butt of their jokes get more of your attention than the movement you helped inspire.

 

As a working mother in political journalism, I always looked to your journey as a source of inspiration. It was a testament to the fact that a woman can use her professional talents and not let her family suffer. The other side wants to make female conservatives feel like we are put in binders and READ THE REST

 

Has Hughes been looking at the same Sarah Palin I have been look at? Palin has gone to Tea Party rallies and campaign stumped for Conservative pro-Tea Party plenty! My only disappoint with Sarah Palin was her decision to not run for the Office of President. I have no doubt that decision was based on the negative attacks by Establishment Republicans. The most notable of those Establishment Republicans was (and is) Karl Rove.

 

Let’s face it. Although the electorate power base of the Republican Party are Conservatives and of those on the Right it is the grassroots oriented Tea Partiers. BUT those who pull the finance strings in the Republican Party is the GOP’s version of Pharisees that favor a more Liberal Social Conservatism and leans toward Crony Capitalism rather than little guy entrepreneurship.

 

Sarah Palin was run out of the Governorship of Alaska because State Dems and Crony Capitalist Republicans constantly were inventing ethics violations to the absurd to prevent Palin from performing her Executive duties as Governor. I believe it is a good guess that she saw the Alaskan subservience to Establishment Republicans would be amplified against on a national basis with the Leftist Palin-hating Mainstream Media propagandizing against her message by obfuscating the honor of her personal life.

 

Instead of a fractured Tea Party splitting the Tea Party with hurt feelings for not getting the personal attention a prominent Tea Partier feels she deserves, it is no reason to make unsubstantiated complaints as if it was Left Wing propaganda.

 

RATHER prominent Tea Party leadership needs to unite and find a candidate like Sarah Palin that has a national message of American Exceptionalism, Constitutional Patriotism and Judeo-Christian Morality and stand up against Dems and Establishment Republicans as well as against the activism of the MSM Left.

 

So what if such a stand is not politically correct! In today’s world who defines political correctness? It is Leftists and RINOs. It is time to change the definers of political correctness.

 

Today it is politically incorrect to think outside of the Two-Party to replace one of the two prominent political parties. As the Republicans replaced the Whigs in the 1850s to eventually elect Abraham Lincoln in 1860, it is time for the Tea Party Movement to coalesce and find a political name representative of Conservative Tea Partiers.

 

In the 1850s the Abolitionist Movement was considered a fringe grassroots movement. The Dems, MSM and Establishment Republicans consider the Tea Party to be a fringe grassroots movement that will play itself out. Establishment Republicans envision the Conservative Tea Party base will catapult the GOP back into driver’s seat of both Houses in Congress. In that envisionment Establishment Republicans intend to minimize Tea Party to stop the Leftist fringe of the Dems and bring a middle road political agenda that benefits the Center-Left socially and the Crony Capitalist corporate big business elites on the Center-Right. 

 

Just because Center-Left and Center-Right sounds like a moderate path it does not mean a beneficent path for American culture.

 

The Leftist end of the scale is godless in values and humanistic in a moral foundation for the rule of law. The far Right end of the scale exploits religion for personal ideological gain and is oppressive to be beneficent to the corporate elite; i.e. Crony Capitalism on the backs of citizens squashing the entrepreneurial spirit of the average American to carve out a self-sustaining niche in life.

 

The only path that will to make America good is the godly path in which a moral foundation is the platform for the rule of law in which the little guy gets a few shake in the midst of Crony Capitalist elites concerned with the profit margin for the Board of Directors or for the Shareholders.

 

Government by and for the people is not a top to bottom manifesto for yeomen Americans rather the people represent the rule of law that protects the rights of the unentitled (and I am not talking about government entitled but rather the wealthy entitled as the opposite of the unentitled).

 

Real justice for all is godly morality not some Leftist ideological definition of justice that robs the yeoman American of the entrepreneurial opportunity to self-sustaining wealth via hard work and good decision making. Leftist justice will keep yeoman Americans enslaved to a life leashed to whatever government agenda is defined as good for Americans even if it robs of Liberty, a godly life and the pursuit of happiness. I call the Leftist ‘good’ evil.

 

The few Sarah Palins left in America need to be rallied around and not used in political divisiveness.

Tea Party News Network Director Falsely Smears Palin

 

By Tony Lee

25 Mar 2013

Breitbart Big Government

 

In a bizarre rant–or “open letter”–at Townhall, Scottie Hughes, the news director for the Tea Party News Network, falsely accuses former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin of rushing out of this year’s CPAC and having a pattern of ignoring grassroots conservatives.

Palin Iowa

 

While Hughes’s motivation for writing such a column may only be known to her, her accusations are demonstrably false.

 

Doug McMarlin, who has been with Palin since 2008 and was with her at this year’s CPAC, was also perplexed by Hughes’s characterization of the event. Palin met with volunteers, supporters and CPAC leadership at this year’s event. Palin keynoted last year’s CPAC and was the conference’s last speaker, which allowed for her to mix with the audience following her speech.

 

This year, her slot fell on a Saturday afternoon, which meant there were scheduled speakers immediately after her remarks. It would not have been logistically possible for Palin to even greet the crowd or do talk radio hits from CPAC without causing a huge disturbance due to the crowds that would have swarmed her and disrupted the conference.

 

“Never underestimate the level the uninformed with a keyboard will go to make a point based on a lack of information,” McMarlin told Breitbart News. “Lamestream, mainstream, and no stream media, it’s unfortunate when those who lack facts lash out without regard. Governor Palin, as always, was with volunteers, supporters and fellow conservatives throughout her days at CPAC.”

 

Hughes also implied that Palin only speaks to the grassroots through the teleprompter, but this accusation again does not even pass the smell test.

 

Jason Recher, a Palin staffer who has been with Palin at nearly every event since 2008, told Breitbart News Palin never asks for a teleprompter. In fact, reporters have often said Palin improvises during her speeches, which forces reporters to pay attention to every word in order to quote her accurately.

 

“I’ve been at almost every speech she’s given since ’08 and can’t think of a time where she ever asked to use a Teleprompter,” Recher told Breitbart News. The teleprompters at CPAC were part of the stage set up used for all the speakers; it was not something Palin personally requested.

 

Hughes, with no evidence whatsoever, alleges Palin made a “rush to the exits” at this year’s CPAC, implying Palin did not have time for the grassroots.

 

Again, not true.

 

As the photos below indicate, Palin spent time after the speech meeting with volunteers.

 

In addition, Rebecca Mansour, a Palin staffer, told Breitbart News that Palin had to catch a flight immediately after her speech. “She is a very busy working mom with many family and work obligations, including raising a son with Down syndrome who has scheduled therapies,” Mansour said.

 

Finally, in what may be her most misguided and out-of-touch statement that reveals her ignorance, Hughes refers to Palin’s “pattern of this behavior.”

 

What “pattern” is Hughes referencing?

 

The hours that Palin spent with nearly everyone who wanted to speak to her after she keynoted CPAC in 2012, as can be seen in C-SPAN’s coverage of the event?

 

The hours Palin spent in the lobby at CPAC in 2012 talking to bloggers and attendees, including Townhall’s own Katie Pavlich? Hughes penned her column at Townhall, so it is worth noting that Palin spoke to that outlet at CPAC in 2012.

 

Is Hughes referencing the time Palin spent with those who came to Iowa–in inclement weather–to listen to Palin denounce crony capitalism and the permanent political class in 2011? At the end of C-SPAN’s coverage of the event, it is clear Palin is energized by grassroots conservatives, and they love her because she genuinely is one of them.

 

Was Hughes referring to Palin visiting grassroots Tea Partiers at the Machine Shed restaurant in Iowa in 2011, comfortably mingling with nearly everyone in attendance?

 

Was she referencing Palin’s appearance at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, where she talked to nearly every Iowan who approached her for nearly six hours? Where she won the respect of liberals and even mainstream media reporters who did not think highly of her for genuinely liking “common” people most politicians do not feel comfortable around?

 

If Hughes is really a part of the grassroots and not a part of an astroturf movement, she could have gone to any of these events–like thousands of grassroots Tea Partiers–and spoken to Palin. Instead, she sounds like mainstream media members who lash out at Palin solely because Palin does not speak to them whenever they wish.

 

At these events, mainstream media reporters and liberals who did not even like Palin conceded how gracious and how accessible she is and how she thrives around the normal people Hughes purportedly claims to represent. Having written about Palin for nearly four years and having spoken to people who have been at nearly every event Palin has attended during this period, I have consistently heard people comment about how accessible–and down to earth–Palin is after all of her speeches and events, which is especially noteworthy given Palin’s white-hot star power.

 

It is unclear if Hughes wants Palin to spend time with her or her organization, but grassroots Tea Partiers who truly care more about fighting for the country instead of using the Tea Party to advance whatever agenda suits their interests never ask Palin for anything except to hold politicians and the permanent political class on the left and right to account, which Palin has relentlessly done.

 

And while Hughes implies Palin does not pay attention to new media, it is worth noting that after Palin turned down Fox News’ offer to renew her contract earlier this year, the first interview Palin gave was to Breitbart News–a new media outlet.

 

While Hughes, to date, has not seemed like someone who would proverbially come to Washington claiming to change it and instead see the D.C. cesspool as a jacuzzi, her column reads like it was written by someone desperate to become a part of the permanent political class. Her comments are cribbed from remarks the elite Washington, D.C. Republicans and liberals she purportedly is against so often make to denigrate Palin because they, in their minds, think Palin somehow spurned them. They criticize Palin to get pageviews and ratings and to make a name for themselves so they can try to get 1/1000 of her star power and influence.

 

They desperately crave to get 1/1000 of the bookings Palin most often has to turn down on a daily basis.

 

They wish their children could have the opportunities to influence pop culture–and would take that chance and go toward the glistening Hollywood spotlight faster than a moth to a flame–all the while acting as if they despise the Hollywood elite while secretly craving their affirmation and wanting all of the glitz and glamour associated with them.

 

They want to use the Tea Party movement to become stars or cash out instead of fighting to elect candidates like Ted Cruz to the Senate. At CPAC, Cruz said he would not be in the Senate without Palin. Nobody mentioned Hughes, and she most likely will not have politicians knocking on her door to ask for her endorsement.

 

Hughes needs to be careful, for more columns like this will make people think Hughes may be projecting or falsely seeing in Palin what she may see in herself. Columns that smear a politician like Palin who has held both parties to account in the true spirit of the Tea Party movement will begin to “worry” conservatives and Tea Partiers. They may begin to wonder what Hughes’s intentions are for being in the Tea Party movement and whether Scottie Hughes puts herself before her country and the principles for which she purportedly fights.

Looking at Palin’s CPAC 2013 Speech


Sarah Palin - Big Gulp - CPAC 2013

We deserve better than the people who call themselves our leaders. But we won’t get it unless we’re ready to fight, and this is one fight that is worth it.”

 

Sarah Palin speech at CPAC on March 16, 2013 as derived from the last paragraph of the post “Sarah Palin’s Defiance” by Douglas Gibbs.

 

America needs more people like Sarah Palin to show the Republican Party to forget its Establishment and embrace Conservatives or get out of the way for a NEW American political party that is willing to embrace Conservatism and be a light on the hill shining that which has made America good rather than the propagandized indoctrinating message of America’s Left which desires to transform America to a vision that eradicates the U.S. Constitution and the morals of the Judeo-Christian faith in favor of politically correct moral relativism.

 

I realize 2016 is a long ways away; nonetheless this is the kind of person or one like Palin that needs to be the next President of the United States of America!

Sarah Palin CPAC Speech 3-16-13 Transcript Video: Karl Rove Go Back to Texas Put Your Name on a Ballot

 

March 16, 2013 19:09

Before It’s News

 

Senator Ted Cruz, the Keynote Speakers, introduced Sarah Palin, who was one of the first big names to come out enthusiastically for him. Due to time constraints I’ve left the intro out, but you can see it in the video below. Toward the end of the transcript and video, Palin referrs (sic) to the “Architect” who is Republican strategist and moneyman who long ago decided he would be the decider of who candidiates (sic) would and would not be. Sarah suggest that if he knows so much and is worthy his millions, he should go on back to the Lone Star state and put (h)is name on a ballot. Sarah (b)egins with words of praise for Ted Cruz and says “Ted Cruz, he comes to town, he chews up barbed wire. He spits out rust.”

Begin Sarah Palin speech

 

…one reason I like Texans. They don’t mess around with our Second Amendment rights. All this stuff coming lately from the White House to take away the good guys’ freedom, and, the right to protect ourselves with the most naive notion that the bad guys, who ignore the laws, that all of a sudden they’re going to follow some new laws. It’s not about the bad guys. No , it’s all about the lead, like solely – that chunk of metal didn’t commit the crime. That’s like saying solely, that fork made me fat.

 

And background checks, yeah, I guess to learn more about the person’s thinking and associations and intentions. More background checks? Dandy idea Mr. President – should have started with yours. [audience going wild]

 

Well, it’s great to be back at CPAC. I’m so happy to be here and it feels like it’s coming home even though it is only my second time here, but I kinda feel like I’m getting the hang of it already, I can spot those Liberal media folk here to write their annual Conservatives in Crisis story. How many of you guys are here? Raise your hands…come on, raise your hands. Be proud. You’re loud. We’re used to it. Certainly you’re not ashamed to…raise it high. Don’t worry. We wouldn’t dream of making you wait outside on the party bus.

 

It is an honor to be here. We can come together folks for an adult conversation about the future of our country and heaven knows, we need this. So much of what passes for our national conversation is anything but.

 

Remember ‘No Drama Obama?’ If only. Now it(‘s) All Drama Obama. We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington. We have reality television. It’s really bad reality TV and the American people tuned-out a long time ago. Entertainment TV is a good description of what is going on in DC because more than ever it feels like a put-on. Every event feels calculated to fool us somehow. Every speech feels like a con. Washington politicians, too many in both parties, have a bad habit of focusing on the process of politics instead of the purpose of politics, which is to lead and to serve. Even our guys in the GOP too often have a habit of reading their stage directions, especially these days. They are being too scripted, too calculated. They talk about rebuilding the party. How about rebuilding the Middle Class? They talk about rebranding the GOP instead of restoring the trust of the American people.

 

Now we can’t just ignore though, that…we just lost a big election. We came in second out of two. Second position on the dogsled team is where the view never changes and the view ain’t pretty.

 

We need to figure out then, our job. What will we do  next? As we go about that, as we talk to one another, and listen to what the speaker’s have to say, let’s be clear about one thing, we’re not here to rebrand a party, we’re here to rebuild a country.

 

We’re not here to dedicate ourselves to new talking points coming from Washington, D.C. We’re not here to put a fresh coat of rhetorical paint on our party. We are not here to abandon our principles in a contest of government give-aways. That’s a game we will never, ever win. We are here to restore American and the rest is just theatrics, the rest is just sound and fury. It’s just making noise, and that sums up the job President Obama does today.

 

Now, he’s considered a good politician, which is like saying Bernie Madoff was a good salesman, the difference being the President is using our money.

 

You know I spend most of my time in heartland country, the heart of the heart of America and I have news for the permanent political class in Washington. While they’re busy worrying about their own political future, things are bad out here. Nearly 8% unemployment rate. It doesn’t begin to capture how bad things are. Even in the dismal rates announced of  .1% economic growth, that doesn’t tell the story of the pain that Americans feel.

 

Our president fancies himself as the champion of the Middle Class, yet since he came on scene, even those lucky enough to have a job, they’re working more for less. The median income for families has dropped over $5,000.00 since ’07, even as we work longer and longer hours. And job creators are being punished. Tell me how does punishing the job creators, create more jobs?

 

It cost nearly 100 bucks now to fuel up your truck. It costs tens of thousands of dollars to send your child to college. Man, the cost of a case of diapers today…these prices…the cost, the impacts on the American family budget, and the Middle Class Americans, while we’re breaking their budget, the Democrat-controlled Senate refuses to pass a budget. That was how many years ago that  they did? How many Trillions-in-debt-ago? All in violation of Article I Section 9, Clause 7 of our U.S. Constitution. No budget for 4 years. No budget for 4 years is not just bureaucratic bungling. Refusing to pass a budget is refusing to declare what it intends to do with the people’s money.

 

Barack Obama promised the most transparent administration ever. Barack Obama, you lied.

 

There is a direct correlation between the Senate stubbornly refusing to pass a budget, and the Senate selfishlessly (sic – should be ‘selfishly’ according video speech) agreeing to go ahead and spend our children and our children’s money. No budget is no leadership. It is time for America to get more outraged about this. Never before have our challenges been so big and our leaders so small.

 

Now when we were here last year, the words on everyone’s lips and the wish in your heart was for Barack to pack-her up and bubble wrap the Nobel and the clubs and the high-tops and head on back to Chicago.

 

Well, the election came and went  but the campaign never stopped, at a time when our country is desperate for leadership, we get instead a permanent campaign, but here’s the thing, leaders take risks for the good of our country. Campaigners make promises they can’t keep. Leaders reach across political differences. Campaigners double-down on those differences. Leaders seek to bring Americans together to confront our challenges and campaigners seek to divide and to conquer and to create crisis after crisis after crisis, to exploit.

 

Mr President we admit it, you won. Accept it. Now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.

 

The permanent political class is in permanent political mode so where do we go from here? One of my idols, Lady Margaret Thatcher, she offered this advice after her party lost at the poll. She told fellow conservatives not to get lost in abstract debates and green-eye-shade accounting. Mrs. Thatcher advised conservatives to focus their concerns first and foremost on the people. She said, look at every problem from the grassroots, not from the top down. She also cautioned Conservatives not to go wobbly on their beliefs, to which I offer a hearty Amen Sistah! We can use a leader like Maggie Thatcher today.

 

But just think about it at a time when Washington is so powerful that seven of the ten highest income counties in the country ring the city, allow yourself to imagine leadership that deems to understand us little people, us clinging to our God, our Guns our Constitution and our grassroots – imagine leadership that actually takes seriously the idea of government of the people, by the people, for the people, and then imagine leadership that knows how to prioritize to ensure national security and to stop goverrnment (sic) waste. That’s leadership that would have as it’s guiding light, it’s great North Star, our U.S. Constitution.

 

 

Friends, it’s no accident that it’s opening words are We the People, and while you are dreaming, imagine leadership that respects the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The majority of Americans want this.

 

Is there any wonder there was such a run on guns and ammo for Christmas presents, considering the attack on the Second Amendment? A couple of months ago – oh you should have seen what Todd got me for Christmas. Well, it wasn’t that exciting. It’s a metal rack, a case for hunting rifles to put on the back of a Four-Wheeler, then though, I had to get something for him to put in the gun case, right? So this go-round, he got the rifle, I got the rack. (big applause and she pulls out her Big Gulp and takes a sip till the crowd calms down.)

 

Oh Bloomberg’s not around. Our Big Gulp’s okay. Shoot it’s just pop with low-cal ice cubes in it. I hope that’s okay. What did you think was in it? Yeah, you Young Republicans, especially you who went Greek – I am so proud of you guys, all of you. College Republicans, there on campus. You are so bold, in your…well [crowd screaming]. All right. You guys keep your courage up, and my only piece of advice, because I’m a Mom, to our young College Republicans is, ya gotta be thinking Sam Adams, not drinking Sam Adams. and that’s just a joke. I don’t want to hear from the CEO of some brewery accusing me of being anti-beer. It was joke. You guys just keep up your good work.

 

Seriously though, when we do see harm. When we see life snuffed out through violent, evil acts, imagine leadership that doesn’t seek to exploit the tragedy. Imagine leadership that seeks real solutions to the violence, not cheap political games. That would be leadership worthy of its name. That would be leadership worthy of those words “We the People.” Creating government of, by, for the people. It also means ending the poisonous practice of  treating Americans of different social, ethnic, religious groups as different electorates to be pandered to with different promises. If we truly believe the words of our other founding document, The Declaration of Independence, that yes all men are created equal, then there are no Hispanic issues or African American issues or women’s issues. There are only American issues.

 

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.

 

It’s time we all stopped preaching to the choir and let’s grow. America already has one party that’s expert at pitting groups against one another. We’ll never win a contest of identity politics. We shouldn’t even try. If ‘Believe in America’ is more than just a catchy campaign slogan, then we have to believe in America’s exceptionalism, and her greatest achievement that no one is guaranteed success but everyone is guaranteed an equal opportunity at success.

 

The greatest lie that the government tells is that government is the way to realize this guarantee. There is a simple reason why Washington, DC is an island of prosperity in a nation mired in near recession. Whenever government expands, it’s the well-connected that reap the benefit. The more government intrudes into our lives and businesses, the more it picks winners and losers. The more crony capitalists win, the more the rest of us lose. Whether it’s green energy or free Obama phones or prophylactics, if you don’t have a team of lobbyists in DC or a cancelled contribution check, you’re not at the table – you’re on the menu.

 

If Mrs. Thatcher were with us here today, she would remind us, there’s a big difference between being pro-business and being pro-free market. On this there can be no mistaking where free market stands. It’s time for We the People to break up the cronyism and put a stake through the heart of too big to fail once and for all.

 

That includes in these resource rich states like Alaska, my home state. Read your Constitution Alaskans. Realize that the natural resources that God has created for mankind’s use, are not owned by the big multi-national conglomerates and the monopolies. They’re owned by The People. They don’t own them, so don’t let them own you. You have a right for those resources to be developed for our use.

 

Ending the top-down approach of DC also means changing our top-down political process. The next election is 20-months away. Now is the time to furlough the consultants, and tune-out the pollsters, send the focus groups home and throw out the political scripts, because if we truly know what we believe, we don’t need professionals to tell us.

 

And if we truly seek to know the hearts and minds of the people, there is no substitute for going out and asking them – being one of them with real world experience, actual conversations with actual hard-working Americans, and that goes for finding candidates as well. Creating a government by, for the people. It means looking toward our communities, our PTAs, our service clubs, small businesses, Tea Party rallies and City Halls – for people who are willing to lead. Do you know someone who’s judgement (sic) you trust, someone who doesn’t just preach common sense, but who actually lives it? Well, encourage her or him to run for office.

 

Are you mad as hell and think you have a better way? Then run yourself. Don’t let the big consultants, the big money men and the big bad media scare you off. Don’t let them invalidate you when you no doubt have more real world, practical experience with family and real work. That’s real life, than those in the political bubble who try to tell you who’s worthy, who just doesn’t fit their bill. The last thing we need is Washington DC vetting our candidates.

 

If these experts who keep losing elections and keep getting rehired and getting millions , if they feel that strong about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck-up or stay in the truck. Buck up or run. The Architect  [Karl Rove] can head on back to the great Lone Star State and put their name on some ballot – though for their sakes, I hope they give themselves a discount on their consulting services.

 

Friends you have heard a lot of different voices, offering a lot of different ideas the past few days. I am just humbled. I am just so grateful to be just one of them. I have been so blessed to spend so much of these past years getting to know even more of America, not from the top down, but from the heart looking out, and this I know, there is more wisdom, more character, more grit and common sense in the soldiers and the Mom’s and the teacher’s and the laborers and the firemen and the fishermen and the students and the cowboys – and other extraordinary Americans that I’ve met along the way, than will ever be found in the cocktail parties of power across the river, and …

 

…if We the People have one message to send to Washington, I’m sure it would be this: Get Over Yourself. It’s not about you.
