Sarah Palin, February 2008 Live C-Span Interview

with one comment

Governor Sarah Palin, attending the National Governor’s Conference back on February 24, 2008, was interviewed live on C-SPAN.  She takes several unscripted calls and emails from viewers,  including Democrats who highly praised her bi-partisan philosophy and dedication to ethics reforms.

For those of you who are not exactly enamored with Palin or unsure about her, the composure and command of the facts this lady shows will be an eye-opener.  At the end, she even fields a question about possibly being McCain’s running mate, and I think at that time, February, was a few months before the McCain campaign initially contacted her.  She betrays a little bemusement that she might be in the running.

And McCain Chooses Sarah Heath Palin! An Extraordinary Choice

Alaska Governor Sarah H. Palin

Alaska Governor Sarah H. Palin

What a surprise she is!  Especially after watching the Democrats debate for nearly two years having a female in the person of Hilliary Clinton at the top or No. 2 spot on their ticket, it was actually the Republicans, with a candidate who turns 72 today, picking a pro-life woman three years younger than Obama, who’s been a city councilwoman, a tax-cutting mayor and an anti-pork barrel state chief executive.  Some might say it is fitting coming from a “maverick” Republican.  Remember, it was Ronald Reagan who gave America its first female Supreme Court Justice!

And for you crazy Obamabots, try to remember this before you make bigger fools out of yourselves: How many years was John F. Kennedy a Senator before becoming President? And before he was a United States Senator, what was his executive experience?  None.  Palin was a City Councilman and Mayor before getting elected Governor.

Ohio House Speaker Jon Husted said that backers of Hillary Clinton have “found someone to support today. If they weren’t already in McCain’s camp, this is just another reason to be there.”

From the Seattle Times:

Republicans in Congress this June united to defeat a proposed windfall tax on oil companies, deriding it as a bad idea that would discourage investment in U.S. oil exploration.

Things worked out far differently in the GOP stronghold of Alaska, a state whose economic fate is closely tied to the oil industry.

Over the opposition of oil companies, Republican Gov. Sarah Palin and Alaska’s Legislature last year approved a major increase in taxes on the oil industry — a step that has generated stunning new wealth for the state as oil prices soared.

Short Biography

Sarah Heath Palin (born February 11, 1964) is the current Governor of Alaska, and a member of the Republican Party. She is the first female governor of Alaska, its youngest, and is the first governor born after Alaska achieved statehood. Brought to statewide attention because of her whistleblowing on ethical violations by state Republican Party leaders, she won election in 2006 by first defeating the incumbent Governor in the Republican primary, then a former Democratic Alaskan Governor in the general election.
Details of Palin’s personal life have contributed to her political image. She hunts, eats moose burgers, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane. Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association. She admits that she used marijuana when it was legal in Alaska, but says that she did not really like it.
Palin holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Idaho where she also minored in politics. She briefly worked as a sports reporter for local Anchorage television stations, while also working as a commercial fisherman with her husband, Todd, her high school sweetheart. One summer when she was working on Todd’s fishing boat, the boat collided with a tender while she was holding onto the railing; Palin broke several fingers. Outside the fishing season, Todd works for BP at an oil field on the North Slope and is a champion snowmobiler, winning the 2000-mile “Iron Dog” race four times. The two eloped shortly after Palin graduated college; when they learned they needed witnesses for the civil ceremony, they recruited two residents from the old-age home down the street. Todd is a Native Yup’ik Eskimo. The Palin family lives in Wasilla, about 40 miles (64 km) north of Anchorage.
On September 11, 2007, the Palins’ son Track joined the Army. Eighteen years old at the time, he is the eldest of Palin’s five children. Track now serves in an infantry brigade, and will be deployed to Iraq in September. She also has three daughters, Bristol, 17, Willow, 13, and Piper, 7. On April 18, 2008, Palin gave birth to her second son, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who has Down syndrome.(Sarah returned to the office three days after giving birth.) Palin refused to let the results of pre-natal genetic testing change her decision to have the baby. “I’m looking at him right now, and I see perfection,” Palin said. “Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?” .From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Barack’s Own Housing Problem

with 2 comments

“If you want to talk about a housing problem,” McCain spokesman Brian Rogers tells ABC News, “Sen. Obama certainly has one when he bought his million dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon.”

“That’s a house that he could not have bought without Mr. Rezko’s actions,” said Rogers. “It raises questions about his judgment. And you know it is an issue that we think the American people care far more about than how many houses or properties or dog houses that John and Cindy McCain have.”



Here is another interesting take on this story.

Obama’s Caucus Fraud Trick: How The Delegates Were Stolen

leave a comment »

How can the Democratic Delegates to the Denver Convention Ignore This evidence?

Texas Darlin is blowing the roof off of a massive fraud being uncovered. Seems Obama’s campaign has committed a massive fraud with the Democratic Caucus system.  This whole deal will, in a campaign of stunning deals and deceits on Obama’s part, still stun you!

“The delegates know, all too well, that Barack Obama edged out Hillary Clinton in the pledged delegate count largely due to his victories in caucus states. Obama won 13 out of 14 caucuses, but only 18 out of 39 primaries. 42% of Obama’s wins were caucus states, 95% of Clinton’s wins were primary states.

The Delegates also know that Hillary Clinton was the popular-vote winner. Obama supporters take issue with that conclusion, complaining that there is no way to count the popular vote turn-out in caucus states.

But it’s no mystery why some of the caucus states, such as Texas and Washington, which also held primaries, saw completely mis-matched results.

Obama really needed those caucus wins, didn’t he? And what was his effective caucus strategy?

FRAUD. The caucus fraud reports are coming out now, and spreading like wildfire. There is no way for Obama to hide from them.

Blogger AnnieNYC posted on Tuesday half of the reports from one city alone, El Paso, and it’s staggering! These are official incident reports. My blog format won’t let me display the full images, so go to AnnieNYC’s site and check them all out. It’s a must-read.”

See also this rather large documentation.

And it seems Obama is looking to change the system, so no one else can stop another from stealing a nomination in the future….perhaps block Hillary Clinton in the future?  LOOK HERE.

Photo Documents Barry (Obama) Soetoro: Indonesian Citizen, Muslim Religion

with 3 comments

Check out this important story at Texas Darlin’s blog!


The AP caption reads: “This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro into the Catholic school made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro. The document lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen, born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, and shows his Muslim step-father listed the boy’s religion as Islam. (AP Photo/ Tatan Syuflana)”

What It Means

This AP photo is compelling evidence of the following assertions, which have been set forth on this blog:

1. Barack Obama had Indonesian citizenship

2. Barack Obama had the legal name Barry Soetoro

3. Barack Obama was a Muslim, despite his “fight the smears” claim that he never has been. (see new story that we just posted on this topic).

In addition, it means that Barack Obama apparently lied to the Illinois Supreme Court when asked to provide former names, according to this Attorney’s Registration Record:


Obama: The Manchurian Candidate?

with 4 comments

From Larry Johnson @ No Quarter:

August 9, 2008

“Just today, courtesy of the Rocky Mountain News, we confirmed that Barack aka Barry Soetoro Obama was a citizen of Kenya since 1963. Barack has yet to stipulate when he renounced or relinquished that citizenship. That will be a distracting issue in the upcoming campaign. Americans don’t want to elect a Kenyan as President. It is that simple.

But then there is the Indonesian problem and his Hawaiian birth certificate.
I confirmed today that several teams/individuals visited Jakarta during the last six months to gather up critical documents regarding Barack. It is amazing what money can buy. The information includes details of how Barack made his way to Pakistan. Oh! Did I mention there have been similar efforts underway in Pakistan. There are several lessons and warnings in the John Edwards affair for Obama. First and foremost, you cannot hide your past.”

FromThe Real Barack Obama:

“To that blank slate that was Obama in 2004 you can now add the Pandora’s box of Tony Rezko, Allison Davis, Alexi Giannoulias, Kwame Kilpatrick and a long list of members of the Illinois Combine; Nadhmi Auchi, Aiham Alsammarae, Rashid and Mona Khalidi, and Edward Said; Revs. Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, and Otis Moss III and Father Michael Pfleger; Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam and the 1995 Million Man March; Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panther Party; William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, Marilyn Katz, Carl Davidson, Mike Klonsky and others from the SDS days who are clinging to his coat tails; Jodi Evans; Hamas and other admirers like Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Kim Jong-Il, and the Communist Party USA; and the list goes on.
Let’s not forget the ever-growing list of controversies: Rezko house and lot; lobbyists, bundlers, and overseas contributions; Odinga family and violence in Kenya; Soetero family and Muslim schooling in Indonesia; Dunham family in Kansas and Hawaii; and the mysteries of his birth certificate—is he Barry Soetero? Barack Obama Jr. or someone else and was his name ever legally changed?—and rumors about his possible dual or mixed citizenship.
Oh, we cannot leave out his elitism and mention of “bitter” Americans and “typical white” people like his grandmother and the constant playing of the race card when his campaign or poll numbers were slipping downward, not to omit 18 million Democratic voters who will never forget how he treated Sen. Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign and how, with the help of the DNC elite and his brownshirted acolytes, he stole the Democratic primary.
Silly reporter. You just had to ask, didn’t you?”

From Goodtimepolitics, “Democrats candidate healthcare, Economic plan”:

August 10, 2008
“Barack Obama plan with a trillion dollar tax increase on America’s hard working families.
Senator Barack Obama’s bold plans to spend hundreds of billions on national health care, infrastructure, education, and energy? Put another way, how likely is it that the plans now being spelled out on the campaign trail will actually come to pass? In two words, not very.
So why make promises that you can not keep Obama?  People did you hear, Obama is just talking and there is no way that he can do any of the things he’s says.  Add on the inexperience and you have a useless candidate in Barack Obama.”

Some Dem Candidates Now Distancing Themselves From Obama

leave a comment »

The ‘Chosen One’ is falling upon a rough patch…..

This is beginning to happen more and more. A month ago, Democrats couldn’t get close enough to The Chosen One, now more and more each day, candidates are stepping back, “just in case”, allowing themselves an “out”.

Obama’s frighteningly mean talk to the seven year olds, and Hillary’s noises about getting a roll-call vote at the convention is making lots of people think again…..Obama’s “nomination” is but a few dozen Super Delegate votes from being nothing but a memory.

Sen. Mary Landrieu is keeping her distance. Last Thursday, an automated Google search for “Mary Landrieu,” produced a link to a page on Obama;’s website touting an upcoming Washington, D.C fundraiser for Obama. An aide to John Kennedy, Landrieu’s Republican challenger, sent it to reporters. Just two hours later, the link went down, only to reappear with Landrieu’s name removed without notice.  Marc Ambinder noticed this on his blog where he has screen shots, etc.

This isn’t Obama’s first brush with being a leper. Back in May three very prominent Democrats (Gary Hart Rep. Harold E. Ford Jr. and Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr.) rushed to distance themselves from Obama’s gaff about meeting with terrorists as President. Same for NARAL Affiliates who have since found out Obama changed yet again, and is firmly (for now anyway) against late-term abortions.

When it comes to offshore drilling, a growing number of Obama’s Senate colleagues are distancing themselves from his steadfast opposition. They’re even starting to side openly with McCain’s proposal to allow it. First it was Sen. Durbin, the senior senator from Obama’s home state, who said yes to offshore drilling and no to Obama. Then reports emerged that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid might change his tune on allowing offshore drilling. Now there’s word that the rise in oil prices has inspired a change of heart in Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, who had previously opposed such plans.

Now what came just before this was from The Weekly Standard. On July 11th, a month ago!  Notice what happened?  Obama switched it up again, and let it be known he hadn’t changed his mind, mind you, but rather he was “open” to agreeing to more drilling, IF the bill contained lots of money for alternative energy.

Obama is shaping up to be the only Democrat without a chair when the music stops. His latest ad claims offshore drilling won’t be effective, putting him in a terrible bind. If he sticks to his guns, he’s at odds with his party and the vast majority of Americans. If he flip flops, there’s yet another reason for his countrymen to conclude he’s nothing but a milquetoast flip-flopper whose words mean nothing. This is now sinking in with dozens of the higher-profile Democrat candidates around the nation.

Look for more signs of distance emerging in the coming month, as the pols realize how vulnerable Obama, and his nomination, will make Democrats around the country, even in this anti-Republican year.
