Setting the Record Straight: About the Hard-Working Governor...

Conservatives4Palin has come up with the great idea of encouraging readers to do their own archiving of Governor Palin’s emails:

The media went crazy thinking they were going to find a smoking gun on Governor Palin by forcing the State of Alaska to release 24,199 pages of email communications during her time in office. They were wrong and have admitted as much. After the media spent so much time and effort, they discovered no “bombshells,” which of course they were hoping for all along....

The media is cherry-picking small excerpts to highlight, but they are leaving the bulk of the 24,199 pages out of their reports. That’s where you come in…

We need to gather links from the email database that prove what kind of leader Governor Palin really is. We need to find the stuff the media doesn’t want the public to know about. We want to show the stuff they aren’t reporting but is still available online. The media wanted to “expose” what kind of executive Governor Palin was while in office… So, let us oblige them! We need your help collecting and archiving excerpts.

Read more here about how you can get involved. We encourage everyone to join in. We'll link to the finished results here.

One Mans Opinion

One Mans Opinion - 6/11/2011
By Dewaine Shoulders

Normally I would have waited till Monday to post a blog, but I just couldn't wait until then. I want to talk about Sarah Palin's e-mails for a moment... Those 24,000 plus emails that were released by Alaskan officials this week from former Governor Palin.

The media dug into those e-mails like they were pigs in slop!

I do have one small question to ask the media - Did you do all of this for Barrack Obama? Did you sift thru his e-mails when he decided to run for president? Nah, you media folks wouldn't do that to anyone you liked, huh?

You'd think that journalists would have so many more important stories to cover. Like our economy, that's on the brink of depression; three wars going on; terrorists vowing to destroy Israel and the United States.

But "noooooo," says the media. "We need to sift thru 24,000 e-mails so we can dig up dirt on Sarah Palin." (Notice I'm putting words in their mouths like they always seem to do to her).

Here are just a few samples of her emails.

• Sarah Palin and family once hung out with an Elvis impersonator. God forbid!

• There were vicious rumors about whether Sarah Palin was actually the mother of her son, Trig, from the start. In April 2008—just days before she gave birth to Trig—Palin emailed her husband and senior staff to alert them that a political rival was spreading rumors that it was her daughter, Bristol, who was actually pregnant. "I wish I could shame people into ceasing such gossip about a teen, but can't figure out how to do that," Palin said. The rumor mill still runs amok.

•In September 2008, a Palin aide suggested the governor should appear opposite Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live. Of course, she later did. And she rocked the place!

• It was reported long ago that Palin installed a tanning bed in the governor's mansion. Wow! They now have the smoking gun that proves she indeed had a tanning bed installed. Woo hoo! Wow! This is really important stuff, people.

These vultures, seen in the picture below, tells the tale.

The reporters are acting like a bunch of looters in a Walmart after a riot. They look like extras on a Mission: Impossible set. Your mission, if you decide to accept it: Grab a box of Sarah Palin's emails and go dig for dirt.

How low the media has fallen. How low journalism has sunk into the mire. This isn't news... This is The Jerry Springer Show on steroids! When will the media and these so-called journalists actually report on the news from the Oval Office? How the current president is failing the nation! How he has crippled the economy (worse than Jimmy Carter did back in the late 70's)!

When, oh media elites, when will you actually do your jobs?

"No can do," says the media. "We have Sarah Palin to pick apart."

Sarah Palin is now the most reported-on woman in the world, thanks to Palin Derangement Syndrome that these 'Yellow Journalists' seem to be eat-up with.

I have but one word that described these so-called media professionals: LOSERS!

And I have one word to describe Sarah Palin: WINNING! (With all apologies to Charlie Sheen for borrowing his line).

But that's just my opinion, I could be right!

Setting the Record Straight: About False Quotes Attributed to Gov. Palin


An absurd opinion piece in Politico includes a quote attributed to Governor Palin that is a total fabrication and yet is deliberately written to appear as if it is a legitimate direct quote. By any standard this is unacceptable even for an opinion piece. This puts us in mind of a real quote of something Governor Palin actually did once say to the media: “Quit making stuff up.”

"General" Sarah Palin

Stonewall Jackson (between 1861 and 1863).                                     Image via WikipediaEvery United States war has had its share of famous Generals.  The list contains such great names as: Washington, Andrew Jackson, Taylor, Scott, Stonewall Jackson, Lee, Grant, Stuart, Miles, Crook, Shafter, Dewey, Pershing, MacArthur, Eisenhower, Bradley, Patton, Buckner, Ridgeway, Clark, Walker, Westmoreland and Abrams.

We could do well to ask ourselves, just what is it that makes a General great?  What is it that makes a General successful in battle?

While historians and military tacticians debate this on end, there are some characteristics upon which most agree are hallmarks of the great General.  As I read in one blog on the subject: 

“A General leads his men by his example. He expects his men to do their duty to fullest extent of the word. He will send no man to do what he himself would not do of his own accord. He will enforce discipline, and will establish that he is in charge. He must never hold himself higher than a deity, or have his men treat him as such. He must approach warfare from many angles, being flexible, direct or aggressive as the situation warrants. He must also not be afraid of losing everything. The General who does not commit himself fully to victory will lose without honor.”

 Perhaps Sun-Tzu, ancient Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher (who is traditionally believed, and who is most likely, to have authored The Art of War), described it best by stating that command is a combination of wisdom, integrity, compassion, courage and severity.

Certainly, a great General must have tremendous leadership abilities.  He should lead in a way that his army would follow him into hell and back willingly. Yet, he does not simply stand by and watch them do so.  A great General is one who fights alongside his men --as an equal – not from behind a desk and not from above on a pedestal.  A great General knows what it is he is asking of his men and cares that he is sending them there.  He cares about his soldiers as much as if they were his very own sons.  In doing so, he will instills in them that desire to be willing to go to the “gates of hell” for him, to willingly face death for him.

 A great General also must be able to step out of the expected norm and respond to the changing dynamics of the enemy, addressing them head on, using sound tactics and knowledge.  He must accurately assess the options available, be willing to adapt, to create new plans on a moment’s notice and to take actions that might have never been tried before.  This audacity of leadership is what sets apart the great General from the simply good General.

 A great General never overestimates the capability of his own forces and never underestimates the capability of his enemy’s forces.  He knows his enemy and utilizes that knowledge to every conceivable advantage.  Not only must he be able to make a accurate assessment of the tendencies, strengths, and weaknesses of his opponents, but of himself and his troops as well.

A great General must also exercise self-control.  He must be able to control his own actions and to keep the secrecy of the movements of his troops as well.  According to Sun-Tzu, a great General tells no one, not even his own troops, where and when his next operation will take place.

The most important characteristic of a great General is that his decisions are made not to advance his own career or to protect his own reputation.  His sole objective is to protect and serve his country.

Finally, a great General expects victory.

THIS General is the nation's treasure.

 As we head into the Presidential campaign of 2012, look at the potential Republican field in light of these characteristics.  Surely the person who will become our Commander-in-Chief should embody the characteristics of a great General. How many out there fit this description?  There may be a few good Generals, but are there any great “Generals” to rally the troops around them and lead us to victory November, 2012?

Do we have any who lead by example?  Who are willing to do away with the perks and pleasures offered to most politicians in favor of what is best for their country?  Surely none that have served in Congress have lived up to that standard.  Only one stands out as having not only as having been one of the “troops”, but having also willingly given up expensive perks to lead by example for her state.  

While governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin dismissed the personal chef at the governor’s mansion, stating she could cook for her own family.  To cut costs, she gave up the governor’s personal driver, choosing instead to drive herself from Wasilla to her office in Anchorage.  She also sold the private jet purchased by the previous governor, stating it was impractical and an unnecessary financial burden on the state.  She chose to lead by example for all the other government officials in her state and show the people of Alaska she wasn’t going to ask them to do anything that she wasn’t willing to do.

Who among the current field of GOP contenders has the courage to step out of the norm and use tactics never before heard of in a political “war”?  Taking great criticism for not following the accepted and usual path, Sarah Palin has accessed the changing dynamics of our nation and our culture and has adapted her tactics to reflect those changes.  Her “One Nation Bus Tour” and the movie “Undefeated” are both examples of this, as well as her unparalleled use of Twitter and Facebook to reach her three million-plus followers.

Which one of those who wish to be the next Republican nominee for President has had the courage to take on the “enemy” head on?  Who has openly challenged President Obama, not only for his unwise and dangerous policies, but for clearly lying to and purposely misleading the American people with false “facts”?   Time and time again, Sarah Palin has called President Obama on the carpet of the Oval Office by challenging his questionable math regarding jobs creation, the effectiveness of the Stimulus bill or the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare.  

Who has been willing to forsake any personal gain and seek the best interest of the country?  Other contenders appear to stick their fingers in the air to judge the wind of popular opinion before they dare give theirs.  They want to make sure they don’t do anything to disturb their chances for what they want for themselves in the end.  Not Sarah Palin.  From the time she first stepped on the political scene her attitude has been, “If I die politically, I die, but I will do what is right.”  Right she has been, and right she will be.

Which of the GOP hopefuls instills a sense of excitement and expectation for victory?  Several contenders have entered the ring with their announcement to run causing barely a ripple to stir the surface of the water.  Sarah Palin hasn’t even entered the race – yet – and she is the most exciting person out there.  She leads in polls without even having a candidacy.  She draws incredible crowds wherever she goes.  And when she does announce, she will have no problem raising money.  Her “troops” are ready and waiting and eager to follow her all the way to the voting booth on November 6, 2012.

Which candidate for President in 2012 could be considered our country’s national treasure?  Only one.

Mayor, Governor. . .Commander-in-Chief.  Run, Sarah, Run.

Another “WTF” Obama Foreign Policy Moment

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

*As many readers have pointed out “WTF” is for “Winning The Future,” President Obama’s re-election campaign slogan.

As Governor I fought the Obama Administration’s plans to cut funds for missile defense in Alaska. So imagine how appalled and surprised I was to read this article by former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey, appropriately titled “Giving Away the Farm,” concerning President Obama’s latest bizarre actions relating to missile defense.

President Obama wants to give Russia our missile defense secrets because he believes that we can buy their friendship and cooperation with this taxpayer-funded gift. But giving military secrets and technologies to a rival or competitor like Russia is just plain dumb. You can’t buy off Russia. And giving them advanced military technology will not create stability. What happens if Russia gives this technology (or sells it!) to other countries like Iran or China? After all, as Woolsey points out, Russia helped Iran with its missile and nuclear programs. Or what happens if an even more hardline leader comes to power in the Kremlin?

We tried buying off the Kremlin with technologies in the 1970s. That policy was a component of “detente,” and the hope was that if we would share our technologies with them, they would become more peaceful. Things, of course, didn’t work out that way. The Kremlin took western technologies and embarked on a massive military building program. History teaches that peace comes from American military strength. And a central component of that has always been technological superiority. Why would President Obama even dream of giving this away?

Members of Congress saw how foolish President Obama’s gambit was, so they put a section in the defense appropriation bill that specifically forbids the federal government from spending money to share these technologies with the Kremlin. President Obama actually threatened to veto the defense appropriation bill over this section of the law! Fortunately, the House passed the bill with a veto-proof majority, a whopping 322 to 96. Attention now turns to the Senate.

Why is it that President Obama seems to work so hard to give things to our enemies, while at the same time asking friends and allies like Israel to make sacrifices?

During these tough economic times when we are facing massive deficits and a competitive global economy, does President Obama really want to give away technologies that the American taxpayer paid lots of money to develop? Giving away our missile defense secrets won’t make us safer. What it will do is create a situation where we are facing an arms race with ourselves. Russia gets access to our technologies, and we are forced to spend even more money because of the need to stay ahead. Does this make sense to you? Me neither. File this under “WTF.”

The American Spirit (Unfortunately Missed by the MSM)


Our family has been blessed with an opportunity to showcase all that is good and strong and free about our exceptional nation.

Even though the media too often sadly chose sound-bites over substance, they did get lots of substance during our “One Nation” tour from the nearly two dozen opportunities I got to speak candidly with them and talk about policy, politics, history, and everything in between. More importantly, I got to talk with countless everyday Americans who want to get our country back on the right track.


It’s been an extraordinary honor to meet so many fellow patriots who care deeply about this country, who want a brighter future for all of us, and who recognize the undeviating line that connects our history to our future.

Not surprising, some members of the media missed a lot of this due to their relentless and futile search for scuttlebutt. So, we assembled this video to capture the amazing Americana spirit of the places and people we visited. I invite you to enjoy this recap of last week’s east coast bus tour.

Please remember we must learn about our past – our great successes, our bitter struggles, our enduring strength – in order to navigate through the challenges ahead so that we might remain a shining city on a hill and the abiding beacon of freedom.

As we look to our Charters of Liberty and our strong foundation to fundamentally restore America, we'll keep moving forward... and we'll keep reporting on it ourselves.

One Mans Opinion

One Mans Opinion 6/6/2011
By Dewaine Shoulders

Okay, first of all, I had intended to talk about something else today as part of my OMO blog, but the Weinergate story changed this week's topic for me.

As of last week, Anthony Weiner said point blank that he did not send any pictures to anyone. I watched the interview he did on Fox and he categorically denied sending any pictures to anyone. Of course, he couldn't deny it might be him in the picture, and that his Twitter account had been hacked, but he definitely did not send the picture in question.

Well, today he's confirmed that he's a liar of the highest order. Yep, he sent the picture, and more besides. Wow, I think Bill Clinton must have coached him on how to lie, then act humble and contradict yourself later. It worked for Slick Willie, so maybe it can work for the Weiner-man too!

Okay, so now, the little weasel has finally come clean (well, as well as you can clean up feces) and put on his little poor pitiful me routine before the press. What is he sorry for? That he did it, or that he got caught? I'd say the latter of the two.

But that's not the truly funny part of this twisted tale.

As some of you know, and probably most of you don't, I write a weekly blog called The Curious Urinal (I know, stupid name - I get that all of the time). Last Friday, I ran a story about Anthony Weiner and Weinergate. In it, he's being interviewed and snapping multiple pics of himself during the interview.

See it here at:

Little did I know that in a few short days, his arrogance and stupidity would be his undoing. And that I'd foreseen the multiple pics aspect of this story before the rest of the media did... Man, I'm on the cutting edge. LOL

But seriously, here's a man that said Glenn Beck was unethical, and his own lack of ethics pales anything that Beck could have dreamt of doing. The old adage certainly rings true here: Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Anthony Weiner is a corrupt and morally bankrupt man, in my humble opinion. He has let down his party, the people he supposedly represents, and most of all, his wife. I mean, they haven't been married all that long and he's sending out lewd pics, tweets and emails to different women he met on the Internet? And there may have been phone sex too? Ohhhhhhh la la!

And he says he won't resign.

Imagine that. Here's a man who would attack Glenn Beck - for telling the truth about the left and the power brokers in Washington - as unethical, and thinks what he did doesn't warrant resignation. Typical liberal logic.

In the immortal words of Mr. T, "I pity the fool!"

Sarah Palin’s been called everything under the sun by the left; blamed for numerous things that she had nothing to do with, and ridiculed for making stupid statements (which later prove to be true). To the left, she's a vile woman not worthy of breathing the same air as the rest of us. So, now I'm wondering if the leftist bloggers and media will call for Mr. Weiner to resign for his unethical behavior? Will they call Weiner out for his lies and misrepresentations? Will they say, "Vamoose, Weiner-man. Hit the road, bottom-feeder. Resign and take full responsibility, you loser! Go away and STFU!"? I doubt it.

I doubt that he'll resign, but stranger things in life have happened.

I've just heard that Nancy Pelosi may be calling for a committee to look into Mr. Weiner's activities to see if he's broken any congressional rules. If he doesn't resign, maybe the democrats could force him to do so... No wait, they let Barney Frank off, and countless others for reasons that are beyond me.

Now, if a republican had done this, you could hear the shouts from the left that they needed to go. We can't have that kind of behavior in Washington, etc. But when it comes to someone on the left doing something unethical, well, that's different! They are special!

Here's something to think about: If the republicans go after the Weiner-man, then he'll get support from the left as being a target of a right-wing witch hunt. That will garner sympathy for Weiner and this entire episode will be swept under the rug as a bad day at the office. That hypocrisy is what the left thrives on. If the republicans don't go after him, they look weak, and make the left more determined to ramrod anything they desire down America's throats and make us like it.

At least Richard Nixon had the common decency to resign for the Watergate scandal. The cover-up was worse than the crime itself, and Nixon took responsibility and resigned. Gerald Ford, upon being sworn in as president, pardoned Nixon and caused a stink throughout America and the media.

My how times have changed.

If Anthony Weiner has any morality about him, he'd do the right thing and resign. But when has anyone on the left ever really done the right thing?

That's just my opinion, I could be right!

Sarah Palin: A Boffo Performance

-from Patrick's World USA

"I thought she was a boffo performance today. It was the first time that I ever saw her and thought this woman is a serious, if she decides to run, candidate for president and a serious possiblity to be president." - Chris Wallace, Fox News Sunday

Someone asked me during the weeks following Obama's election in 2008 if I thought that Sarah Palin's mistakes on the campaign trail would damage her ability to be a viable candidate in 2012. I explained that it was important to look at all politicians and study their performances along their respective campaign trails to get a frame of reference. Politicians speak for a living. They say millions of words and phrase their arguments and answers to questions in thousands of ways. It is statistically impossible for any human being to be perfect with every word and every answer. I pointed out that if you applied the same standard to Joe Biden, he probably wouldn't be viable as a vice president.

Then I made my signature point. I explained that people were trying to project her future by putting under the microscope a couple of missed answers during the Katie Couric interview (which I also pointed out contained nearly three hours of footage of Sarah Palin landing all the other questions). With this, I closed my argument. Sarah Palin is not a snapshot in time. She is an evolving candidate. In fact, she was one of the strongest, most exciting candidates the Republicans have run since Ronald Reagan. If you think she's even just good or barely good now, wait until 2012. She'll be a behemoth.

A lot of people didn't agree with me back then, but they are starting to agree with me now.

Kirsten Powers, on Fox News today, said that Sarah Palin is bigger than she ever has been and that she is now stating the policy positions that she has formulated after putting her head down two years ago and studying policy. This is a paraphrase, as the transcript of what Powers said is not yet out. But she basically wins my argument for me. Sarah Palin was good in 2012. Today, she is a behemoth.

Tell me if I was right. On August 11, 2009 (nearly two years ago) I wrote this:
This blogger has always described her as an evolving candidate. Watching Sarah Palin go from Governor, to vice presidential candidate and to potential presidential candidate is like watching the part of Ronald Reagan's political evolution that I missed because I was too young.

For those who don't think she's intelligent, you're in for a big surprise. For those who think she is intelligent, you're in for even a bigger surprise. Sarah Palin is not a figure frozen it time. The experience of a national campaign trail and the strength she gains from withstanding a smear campaign that no other American politician has had to endure is just the beginning.

This blogger has read her letters and writings. She communicates concisely when she needs to and she communicates esoterically when she wants. She can be a straight shooter or she can be a allusionist who uses literary or musical references to make her point. Those who disagree with her can't hear her through their bias, so they ridicule her.

She has turned her Facebook page into a research paper. This blogger is made to feel lazy after reading the amount of research she has done on healthcare reform and Cap and Trade. It just so happens, these are the two biggest issues of the day. If Katie Couric interviewed her now, Palin might just well school her and school her severely.
Which brings us to today. Chris Wallace and others are finding their way past the brainwashing that Palin's detractors have been perpetuating upon us for nearly three years now. Liberal and Establishment pundits and writers have wasted thousands of hours of air time and millions of keystrokes tearing this woman down with full knowledge that Palin would evolve into what she is today if they didn't go all out to stop it.

They knew she'd be back. All the lies and all the hits have their genesis deep in the minds and hearts of fearful Palin detractors who had to prevent us from seeing the truth at all costs. They knew the minute she hit the trail in 2008, if they simply allowed people to see Palin as she really is that they would like her and trust her enough to vote for her for president some day. That baby had to die in the crib. Despite their intense effort to destroy her with their Herculean work effort to churn out hit piece after hit piece and  to mock her across the mainstream media and in the pop culture, they have failed.

They have never believed she was dumb or unelectable. They only wanted us to believe that so that they could continue to pursue their liberal and establishment agendas unimpeded by the one person who could blow the lid off the whole effort to keep America out of the hands of those who would expose these agendas as the morally and intellectually bankrupt ventures they really are.

Should Sarah Palin run for president, her policy positions are clear. Her answers to how to fix the economy are exactly what this country needs. Palin told Wallace:
What President Palin would do is cut the federal budget, making sure that we're crowding out private sector investment. We will cut that spending. We have no choice. We're going broke. We're going bankrupt.

We have absolutely no choice. And cut the burdensome regulations and mandates that really quash an entrepreneurial spirit in America and do burden our businesses, and create uncertainly. And that's why we kind of stuck in neutral now, why businesses can't expand.

I would taxes. The second highest corporate tax rate in the world we are burden with. No, we need to cut that to incentivize businesses to stay here on our shores, in America. And not outsource all these jobs and opportunities.

And then one of the most important things, Chris, that we have to engage is unleashing our domestic energy production opportunities. It does come down to "drill, baby, drill," in addition to an "all of the above" energy policy that really is non-existent in the Obama administration.

Energy is the key to prosperity, to security. And until we start tapping our domestic, conventional and alternative sources to energy, we're never going to get there.
This is a message which should encourage an electorate looking for the right candidate. It is the Reagan message of reawakening our industrial giant. Palin has a plan that has already been proven to work.

Experts Back Sarah Palin’s Historical Account

From the Boston Herald:

You betcha she was right!


By Chris Cassidy

Monday, June 6, 2011

Sarah Palin yesterday insisted her claim at the Old North Church last week that Paul Revere "warned the British" during his famed 1775 ride — remarks that Democrats and the media roundly ridiculed — is actually historically accurate. And local historians are backing her up.

Palin prompted howls of partisan derision when she said on Boston’s Freedom Trail that Revere "warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free."

Palin insisted yesterday on Fox News Sunday she was right: "Part of his ride was to warn the British that were already there. That, hey, you’re not going to succeed. You’re not going to take American arms."

In fact, Revere’s own account of the ride in a 1798 letter seems to back up Palin’s claim. Revere describes how after his capture by British officers, he warned them "there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time for I had alarmed the Country all the way up."

O4P CA & The Hollywood Congress of Republicans

The Hollywood Congress of Republicans (HCR) is the leading institution of Republicans in Hollywood and a chapter of the California Congress of Republicans. HCR was created in 2001, as a grassroots framework to advance Republican objectives. At the core of HCR are the interests and affairs that impact Hollywood and the entertainment industry.

Organize4Palin (O4P) CA attended a mixer last Tuesday night hosted by HCR. While O4P CA is certainly not a straight up Republican group (gotta love that Healthy Libertarian Streak!) we were first drawn to the HCR after hearing that several years ago they gave the JackAss of the Year award to Michael Moore. (FYI a little bird told me that he has still not picked up his trophy)

Los Angeles KFI Radio Host Gary Hoffman gave the keynote speech to a room full of culturally rebellious Hollywood Republicans.

(Remember after Obama was elected we were told by the know-it-alls in both parties that Conservatism was dead for at least 40 years, and we should stop looking to Ronald Reagan as a template?...MmmmHmmmm! Yeah, the know-it-alls were wrong on this too, why do we even listen to them anymore?)

Before and after the mixer it was encouraging to talk to ordinary concerned citizens who have not forgotten what America is all about.

As we move toward the 2012 Presidential election it is vital that we are honest with ourselves about the truths that we know to be true, and our willingness to fight for those truths and not be silenced by those who have brought us capitulation by falling for the guise of compromise, middle ground, and moderation.

America faces many challenges today. In order to solve these challenges we must have a steel spine. To find and reclaim our steel spine we must look to America's past for guidance. It is in our past, our history, and our foundation that we will find the simple truths, the whole story, and the solutions to the challenges that we face today.

As Ronald Reagan told us in 1981:

"It is time to reawaken this industrial giant, to get government back within its means, and to lighten our punitive tax burden. And these will be our first priorities, and on these principles there will be no compromise."

Bringing real change to the political landscape of Hollywood is a challenge to say the least. But these last two years we have seen the begining of a possible cultural shift in the entertainment industry.

Real change is possible if we stay vigilant, stay focused, and reject the know-it-alls who claim to be on our side. They (not the left) are the biggest threat to the restoration of America.

They must conform to us. Not the other way around.

When we listen to the tight faced wet blankets, we lose. When we do the right thing we win.

We will not be blurred, we will not be indistinguishable.

(The Truth About Sarah Palin & Independent Voters)

Talking to Hollywood Republicans on Tuesday night was galvanizing. They want to do the right thing. Their ears perk up when you speak truth to them.

For too long Hollywood Republicans have been ravaged by the myth of the Independent Voter and the imaginary Electable Centrist. Deep down even they know its garbage.

There is a reason that a steel spine is so enticing. It gets results.

The mortgaging of our future stops now.

Bold Colors. No Pale Pastels.

It is too early to conclude whether Hollywood’s emerging non-liberal class will influence the types of movies and television shows produced in Hollywood in the coming years.

But one thing is certain. As long as the spirit of the individual lives on; there will be hope. There will be change. Positive change.

Game on!

Gov. Palin on Fox Sunday: Will Step on Toes of Those who Screw Up

"I did not mean to step on [Mitt Romney's] toes, and I truly do apologize, but I will step on the toes of those who keep screwing up," Governor Palin said in her closing remarks to a 30-minute-long wide-ranging interview with Chris Wallace on Fox Sunday from Arizona.

Wallace opened the interview citing a gain of 54,000 jobs for May 2011 which is the lowest in eight months, and a 9.1% unemployment rate. Gov. Palin later added that the under-employment rate is at 17%. She said that two rounds of Quantitative Easing have failed and now Obama is moving to "QE III". She said his "bump in the road" analogy was flawed. "We hit a brick wall," and we need to start talking about solutions - ramp up growth industries in the private sector."

Gov. Palin said that "April was a tough month," with 50,000 jobs added, but those were for McDonald's. "Big government is not working. We need to shift gears and change course. It's noble of President Obama to want to say at the helm and go down with the ship, but we don't need to go the way of the Titanic," she said.

When asked "what would President Palin do"? she answered, "I would go in the opposite direction of Obama and the Democrats. We still have a 9.1% unemployment rate, 17% under-employment. I would cut the federal budget, cut burdensome regulations and mandates, cut taxes, not outsource our jobs, and unleash our domestic energy resources."

"Energy is the key to prosperity and security," Gov. Palin said, adding that "it does come down to 'Drill baby, Drill!'".

When asked about whether not raising the debt ceiling by August 2, 2011 would be catastrophic, Gov. Palin answered, "I don't believe Timothy Geithner when he cries 'wolf' for the fourth time. " On the threat of Moody's lowering our credit rating, Gov. Palin said, "Moody's message is powerful. We rake in $6 billion to $8 billion per day. We should prioritize that money to service the debt and cut other things." Gov. Palin said she knows the debt ceiling will be raised, because the Democratic majority supports it, but if she were in Congress, she would vote "no". "It will only give the big spenders just another tool to increase debt." Gov. Palin said Alaska Senator Mark Begich, "had better get ANWR in the deal."

On the Ryan Plan, Gov. Palin reaffirmed her support and position that it will save, not destroy Medicare. "I'm tired of the media spin" that the Ryan Plan will end Medicare, she said. "If we keep on the road we're on, there will be no Medicare at all. We will be bankrupt." Wallace responded that the Congressional Budget Office says that seniors would pay more money out-of-pocket for care under the Ryan Plan. Gov. Palin said that this was still a better alternative to there being no Medicare at all from a national bankruptcy. Further, people who are now age 55 over over would not be affected by the Ryan Plan, which would not go into effect for 10 years.

On our three wars, Gov. Palin said we need to evaluate conditions of each one individually. On Afghanistan, Gov. Palin said she has faith in General Petraeus' handling of the war. On Libya, "what Congress passed is a good thing. Obama is not clear on the mission. It's nebulous and murky. We need to know what we are there for, otherwise, we don't need to be there." Gov. Palin did not have the opportunity to address Iraq specifically, however, she said "we need to re-think everything we do with foreign aid and intervention."

On the bus tour, Gov. Palin said, "We are publicizing Americana and our foundation. We need to know our foundation and history to be ready for the heady days ahead."

On Paul Revere, Gov. Palin said, "I did not mess up....the British were in the area for seven years." She reaffirmed that his midnight rides were warnings to us that the British were coming - to take up our arms; and also warnings to the British that we were armed and ready to defend ourselves. "I know my American history," Gov. Palin said.

Reactions garnered along the bus tour did not change her mind on a Presidential campaign. Gov. Palin said she did not interpret the reactions as being about herself, but about the message of returning to our fundamental values."

She said her decision to run or not is still "50/50."

Regarding the 25,000 emails being released by the State of Alaska, Gov. Palin said, "every rock in the Palin household has been turned over. People will capitalize on the opportunity to go through 25,000 emails to find out-of-context things to say...but that won't distract me." On Frank Bailey, Gov. Palin said he is a liar and was the only state employee out of 24,000 who had to go for ethics training.

On Romney, Gov. Palin said "I don't think it was taking a short to discuss his record." She reiterated that his record on a mandate within RomneyCare would be problematic, even though it was only at a state level. "I don't like local, state, or federal mandates, unless it comes to saving lives," Gov. Palin said adding that Romney respects the Tenth Amendment and Obama does not. On whether there was room for both Bachmann and herself in a Presidential race, Gov. Palin said, she executive experience and Bachmman does not and said, "the more competition, the merrier and the better."
