Sarah Palin endorses Kirk Adams for Congress in AZ-05

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Today, Kirk Adams, Candidate for the U.S. House in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District announced that he has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Kirk Adams requested the endorsement and shared his beliefs, policy positions and his passion for the citizens of Arizona with Governor Palin.

Governor Palin responded today with a message to Adams

“If you believe strongly in the need to repeal Obamacare, I hope you’ll join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District. Kirk is determined to repeal this mother of all unfunded mandates. And when he gets to Washington he won’t just “join the fight” to repeal Obamacare, he’ll help lead it. 

As one of the youngest Speakers in the history of the Arizona House of Representatives, Kirk led the fight for less government spending, lower taxes, individual freedom, and limited government. As a small businessman, he knows firsthand that entrepreneurship and small businesses (which many of us built ourselves, Mr. President) are the job creating engine of our economy. Kirk is a proven advocate of removing the crushing burdens of excessive government regulation on our small businesses, and in Congress he will fight to put government back on our side and not in our way. 

Kirk has been a steadfast supporter of sound immigration laws and was a leading defender of Arizona citizens as he used his platform to accurately describe this state’s predicament to the rest of America. He was the one who helped us all understand how dangerously misguided President Obama is on state’s rights and the rule of law! When President Obama called Arizona’s law “misguided” and then far removed politicians urged a “boycott” of Arizona, Kirk boldly stood up for his state! He became a loud and proud voice against the unsuccessful boycotts as he passionately wrote here: 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/27/AR2010052702527.html 

His tireless efforts worked. 

Please join me in supporting Kirk Adams for Congress today. 

–Sarah Palin” 

In response to this endorsement, Kirk said, “I am extremely grateful to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin. I sought her support because I believe that Governor Palin embodies the Washington outsider breaking down the doors of the power elite. Sarah Palin stood up and made a difference in her community and state because she realized she represented so many common sense Americans who were not being represented.

As I have encountered the arrogance of Washington in this race, I appreciate more than ever, people like Governor Palin who stand up for what they believe in despite being underestimated and ridiculed. I am proud to receive the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin.”

PALIN PICTURE PROVOKES PUBLIC TO PONDER HER PLANS

THE UNDEFEATED IS A WINNER

Friday, July 1, 2011 22:48 | Written by Kevin Scholla at www.Sarahnet.net

We still don’t know whether Sarah Palin will run for president in 2012, but if she does, The Undefeated may just be her secret weapon. The film chronicles Palin’s entry into the world of politics, her time as a mayor and a governor, her run for the vice presidency, and the remarkable reactions she continues to draw from The Right, The Left, and seemingly everyone in between.

Filmmaker Steve Bannon kicks things off with a bang: Palin being introduced as John McCain’s running mate, followed by a sonic boom: a compilation of some of the worst, visceral, and down right weird attacks thrown at Palin from Hollywood blabber mouths. Along with the celebrities using profanity that would make a truck driver blush, there’s also some eye opening shots of protesters dressed in anti-Palin gear that will have to be edited out for sure once this film hits theaters nationwide if The Undefeated is going to avoid an X-rating. These opening salvos hurled at Palin set the tone for the film. It shows clearly how she’s been portrayed by the left-wing entertainment industry and by all of the mouth breathers who take time away from Mom’s basement every once in awhile to scream and yell about a woman who’s done nothing to them personally. Bannon then masterfully and creatively counters these off putting assaults with a little thing known as…the truth.

Governor Palin went almost instantly from a diligent, hardworking, successful, wildly popular governor in Alaska to a woman vilified by the national media and lefties nationwide. Alarming shots of a mannequin dressed as Palin hanging by a noose, Facebook pages wishing death on her, and hateful insults fired at her family members (kids included) really hammers home just how constant and nasty the assault on Palin has been. It leaves the viewer asking ‘why?’. Bannon’s examination of Palin’s remarkable accomplishments only intensifies the head scratching.

Members of Palin’s inner circle speak throughout the better part of the film. Each one standing in front of a background as white as an Alaskan snowfall. These are people who have played a major role in Palin’s private and/or political life. They are believable and forthright. Meghan Stapleton, Palin’s former senior advisor and spokeswoman is particularly compelling. Her candor about situations and how things really unfolded is refreshing. Stapleton’s impeccable ability to convey a story really takes the viewer right into the thick of the Palin administration. Kristan Cole is another star of the piece. A longtime friend of Palin, Cole captures the personal side of her buddy Sarah. She speaks of a woman who’s genuine and loyal. Someone who thinks of others first and doesn’t bow down to pressure. Bannon backs up this character portrait as the film moves on.

Sarah Palin did not participate in the making of The Undefeated. In fact, Bannon never even met her. Her presence in the film however is mighty to say the least. Footage of Palin is used throughout. Still shots of her as a young girl, home movies of basketball games and get togethers, sound of Palin from her Going Rogue audio book, and several campaign events and speeches, including her coming out party at the 2008 Republican National Convention. Before Palin’s splash on the national scene is looked at though, her historic feats to benefit The Last Frontier take center stage.

The Exxon Valdez oil spill is what inspired Sarah Palin to jump into politics and eventually be elected as Mayor of Wasilla. Fittingly one of the most powerful parts of The Undefeated focuses on oil and all that comes with it. When a powerful, intimidating to most, oil exec approaches Palin at an airport and basically gets in her face and tells her to back off, Palin it is recounted, simply says nothing and stares him down. The fat cat walks away knowing this woman meant business. A woman who means business is an overriding theme of this movie.

Palin is portrayed as a leader with a spine of steel. Yet, she still remains ‘Sarah’ to those who knew her when. Her reaction of “Golly” after clinching the GOP nomination for governor and sharing a brief moment with her Democrat opponent is priceless. She blows the whistle on Republicans who are crippling her state while still cooking meals and finding time to pull her daughter’s hair into a pony tail. She comes across as God fearing yet fun, intelligent yet self-effacing, well-known yet grounded. A regular person who is looking to serve. Not someone who had anything handed to her. A modern day picture of what the Founding Fathers envisioned.

The most incredible testimony into the character of Sarah Palin is her stunning decision to give up a six figure position because she felt that would be the best move for the state. Sarah and her husband Todd were not wealthy people. Still, she did what was right instead of what was easy. Bannon showcases numerous examples of stories like this that were rarely reported on when Palin was running for Veep. Instead the media focused on her clothes, her accent, and really anything else they could use as a tool to break the Barracuda. Three years later, it is clear they failed. More government is not the answer. A sentiment thrown around by many pols these days.  Governor Palin lives up to the slogan. An eye opening moment comes when Bannon highlights Alaska’s massive budget problems. Palin and her staff read the entire budget line for line, cutting along the way, until the spending plan is feasible. A politician that actually reads something word for word before they throw their John Hancock on it? Yes She Did. Perhaps Nancy Pelosi and others should’ve been informed of this technique when Obamacare was on the table.

Sarah Palin did not back down from the old boys club of the GOP, or the oil big wigs, or anyone else. Her approach to leadership in Alaska serves as a microcosm of how she would go about things in Washington. In order to be the first commander in chief that wears lipstick (at least that we know of), Palin will certainly need huge support from Independents. The Undefeated captures Palin’s ‘Drill Baby Drill’ mentality, something that should bode well with Indies if she does indeed run. Palin’s understanding of energy options and her expertise on the state that holds so much potential in that department is brought to the forefront.

Parts of Palin’s near perfect speech at the RNC sent chills through the theater. The clapping and fist pumping shows the exuberance Palinistas felt in 2008 is only stronger today. Her introduction to the world that night showed us a strong, confident conservative who delivered a speech that was pretty much flawless. Another example of something positive Palin has done that has just been brushed aside in favor of fabricated, frivolous attacks. The film also delves into a very important aspect of that 2008 race. Palin helped McCain. She did not hurt him. Folks turned out in droves for every campaign stop Palin was a part of. Supporters chanted, cheered, held up lipstick, and smiled. The governor from the 49th state energized a bid for the White House that was bumbling and stumbling. McCain soared in the polls after adding Palin to the ticket. As she continued to meet America, the numbers got even better for the GOP. With Palin on board McCain surpassed Senator Barack Obama and looked to be in good shape as the stretch drive neared. Then, it was the economy, stupid.

The Lehman Brothers collapse and poor economic announcement after poor economic announcement spelled the end of the line for McCain’s final shot at Sixteen-Hundred. The media would like us to believe Sarah Palin brought the campaign down. She did not. She kept it respectable. After watching The Undefeated, you can’t help but wonder what would have happened if Palin weren’t muzzled by the McCain campaign. She was the one going after Obama’s character and associations while McCain basically prefaced every comment on the stump with, paraphrasing here, “I’m great and so is Obama but vote for me.” The 1962 Mets had a better strategy for winning than that.

Despite the McCain-Palin ticket coming up short, the nation got to meet a woman that Alaska already knew. While the disgusting low blows continued to pour in from the types who never had a date in high school and currently have a Keith Olbermann poster up in Mom’s basement, others rallied behind Mrs. Palin. She is loved by Constitutionalists. She is championed by many who never were politically active before. The Undefeated rightfully credits Palin as a catalyst of the Tea Party movement.

After Obama downed McCain, Sarah Palin headed back to the state she loves. She was eager to get back to work on gubernatorial chores. Instead she was faced with monkey business. Out of nowhere ethics charges galore are thrown Palin’s way. The movie shows Palin handling the falsehoods she’s accused of with grace. Even though they kept on coming. The media would highlight each charge as a top story. Then each and every time the governor is cleared they’d be silent or bury the decision behind the local Tiddlywinks scores. Palin persevered. Footage shows a leader continuing to go about her business at home and in the governor’s office.

The Undefeated stunningly gives us the inside view of just how blood thirsty the press has been. Reporters admittedly saying they were writing slam pieces on Palin. They were intentionally trying to bring her down. They even questioned whether Palin was really pregnant when she was carrying her fifth child! One of the most important revelations to come out of this work is the reason why Palin left the governor’s job when she did. The ethics charges and costs that went with them were clobbering Alaska right in the bear skin wallet. Palin recognized this. Again, instead of putting herself first she thought of who she was serving. She did not want to leave the job she loved, but she did because she thought it’d be better for her constituents. A far cry from the ‘quitter’ spin that is put on her departure by The Left. Palin was getting the Saul Alinsky treatment, so she took the high road and a bridge to somewhere.

Along with Palin’s RNC speech the audience also became animated when President Obama appeared on the screen. Raspberries and Bronx cheers rang out in this Big Apple screening room. Free speech. But, there were no vulgarities, no threats of violence, no inappropriate barbs. Simply displeasure from Americans regarding a man’s policies. Quite the contrast of how ‘people’ go after Palin. The strangeness and deep, dark, horrific nature of the vitriol toward Palin is demonstrated very well in the film.

From a cinematography standpoint, Bannon’s baby is pretty advanced as well. He mixes in humor, symbolism and some great shots of old time Alaska beautifully. Politics aside, what really stands out as to why The Undefeated is a winner is the way the film gets more and more exciting as it moves along. Two hours seems like 25 minutes. Then the grand finale. A Palin-Reagan crescendo.

Conservative pundits are featured in front of that white backdrop later in the film. Mark Levin and Tammy Bruce really present the Palin phenomenon in plain English. Bruce talks about what drew her, a former liberal, to Palin. It’s quite simple really. Palin is the real deal. Levin compares the Tea Party and Palin to the Reagan Revolution.

Not unlike Palin herself, The Undefeated calls out Democrats and Republicans alike. Andrew Breitbart slams the manhood of the GOP men who stand in silence while Palin is ripped apart unfairly and viciously by The Left, Hollywood, and the press. He chastises them for their indifference and lack of action. I couldn’t agree more. Breitbart also delivers the best line of the film, saying “She (Palin) refuses to accept the premise of her destruction.” Ain’t that the truth?

Ronald Reagan was looked at as unelectable when he first came on the scene. We’ve heard that term bandied about regarding Sarah Palin as well. Bannon does a superb job of comparing Dutch with Sarah. The Undefeated includes super clips of Reagan challenging the establishment, going after reporters and politicians who try to falsify his record, and through it all maintaining a smile and a sense of humor. The film shows The left’s disdain for conservative candidates. True conservatives. Remember how loved John McCain was before he actually sewed up the nomination. Look at the recent love affair with Jon Huntsman. It’s the middle of the road Republicans the Dems want to face. The Undefeated is evidence of this.

We don’t yet know if Sarah Louise Heath Palin will run for president in 2012, but we do know a lot more about her if she does decide to give it a go. Judging by the portrayal of Palin in The Undefeated coupled with the response from the audience, you’d have to think if she does throw her glasses into the ring she’d have a real chance of grabbing the nomination. Then she’d have to try to make President Obama ‘The Defeated’. Impossible? About as impossible as challenging a corrupt system of good ol’ boys, passing landmark ethics measures, cutting spending, and being the first ever woman on a GOP ticket, all while raising five children and facing unprecedented attacks on her character and family. Hold on tight. GAME ON.

Sarah Palin’s place in Arizona History

I have to wonder if historians will one day write that, “The first woman President of the United States was both the Governor of the 49th State and a US Senator from the 48th State.”

In an earlier post I wrote that I thought that Governor Palin was running for President in 2012. I have not ruled that presupposition completely out. Every indication is that she is making ready for a run and a campaign based in Arizona.

But there is a new rumor-theory making the political rounds that gives me reason to believe that Palin may not run after all and may be instead thinking much more long-term in terms of her political future.

In my earlier post, I mentioned that I believe that the Palin’s fell in love with Arizona in their visits here over the last 2-3 years. Who wouldn’t? But I also believe that that love affair is mutual on behalf of many Arizonans who are thrilled to adopt the former Alaskan Governor as their very own. Remember, many Arizonans were not thrilled with the 2008 nominee until Sarah Palin was chosen to be on the final ticket. I was one of them.

This brings me back to the premise of my post and the settling of ruminations that occurred this week when Governor Palin dismissed any intention to seek Arizona’s Senate seat, at least not in 2012. (Watch interview.)

It is extremely unlikely that John McCain will seek re-election in 2016 and some politicos even speculate that he may retire early. Between now and 2016, Arizona will have another statewide election (2014). But we must also remember that anything under the Arizona sun can and oftentimes does happen.

Perhaps we should think longer term about Sarah Palin’s political future because, while it may have begun in Alaska and may ultimately peak in The White House, her newly adopted home state of Arizona may very well be the next chapter in her service to this Republic.

 

Sarah Palin ramping up for a Presidential campaign out of Arizona

I gave an interview to Arizona Family TV-3 this evening regarding Sarah Palin’s move to Arizona and the liklihood she will launch a campaign based out of Arizona. Here is the video clip from that interview:

Now my thoughts on an Arizona-based Palin Presidential campaign:

Geographically and climatically, Arizona is far different and more conducive for a nationwide campaign than Alaska would ever be. Arizona is a state that has very little to worry about climatically other than the heat and a rare shutdown of Sky Harbor’s runways over the blast-furnace temperature we experience during the summer. Where else can a national campaign set up home base and not have to worry about earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes or crippling weather? An Alaska-based national campaign that would have to run until next November would have serious challenges during the upcoming 2011 winter months.

It also makes sense geographically for Palin to base a federal campaign out of Arizona. We are one of the fastest growing states and Arizona has major transportation hubs, modern infrastructure and a technologically savvy community. We’re in a region of the country that is highly accessible to and from other parts of the country making travel more of a convenience rather than a challenge to a national campaign.

I also happen to believe that the Palin’s fell in love with Arizona during their multiple visits here over the last three years. Arizona is a great place to raise a family and be a part of a broader community. Ultimately, Americans move to places where they feel comfortable and I’m willing to bet the Palin’s feel very comfortable right here in Arizona.

Now the politics.

Arizona will have 11 electoral votes up for grabs in 2012. That makes Arizona a high priority campaign state. Arizona is also guaranteed NOT to have a home state favorite running for President in 2012. John McCain will certainly not run again and Jon Kyl has already decided to retire from politics (although I think he could be coaxed into taking a seat on the US Supreme Court). Unlike Texas or Florida where Rick Perry, Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush have been rumored as potential candidates, Sarah Palin would not have to worry about competing for the nomination against someone who has been prominent in Arizona politics for years.

I like to say that Arizona is also a crimson red Republican state with a independent maverick attitude. Arizonans are conservative but they have a discernible mistrust of government and especially the federal government. In 2010, Republicans swept all statewide seats and took super majorities in both the State House and Senate. That makes Arizona a comfortable spot for any conservative political leader and Sarah Palin fits that mold.

Palin also has a huge following here in Arizona among women, conservatives in general and a thriving Tea Party movement. Having spoken with many conservative grassroots activists over the last year, it’s obvious to me that she would have no problem building a hardcore base of support among the grassroots and party faithful. Many would be proud to adopt Palin as their own.

The other thing that Arizona has to offer a Palin campaign is organization and structure. There are several proven campaign networks and organizations already in place and no shortage of talented political strategists and operatives here in Arizona. I would not doubt that Palin would also call in some political endorsements including several from our congressional delegation whom she supported during the 2010 election cycle.

Finally, a bit of insider politics that could make an Arizona-based Palin campaign a real game changer. At a national level, everyone knows that Palin poses a competitive threat to Michele Bachmann. Here in Arizona, a Palin campaign poses a serious threat to Mitt Romney. During the 2008 Presidential Primary, Romney did very well in the East Valley especially with the LDS community. Having Palin stake out home territory here in Arizona would clearly lay down a challenge to Romney’s campaign not to take Arizona for granted.

Will Sarah Palin run? As I said in my interview, my source indicates that she is ramping up very quickly. She’s just launched a bus tour of several states including a stop in New Hampshire and she’s due to release a personal documentary that is sure to draw crowds, interest and likely donors. There’s so many things right with an Arizona-based campaign that it only makes complete sense that another Arizonan will venture into the fast and furious waters of presidential politics.

 

 

Ron Paul, Herman Cain win Tea Party poll to run against Obama

The national Tea Party Patriots convention or “Policy Summit” occurred this past weekend at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Here’s a snippet from Reuters:

Rep. Ron Paul and Georgia businessman Herman Cain were conservative Tea Party activists’ top picks to run against Barack Obama for president in 2012, leaving former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in third place (click here for whole article).

“In a ‘presidential straw poll’ of nearly 1,600 conservative members of the Tea Party Patriots released on Sunday, 581 voted for U.S. Representative Ron Paul, a Texas Republican, to run against Obama next year

“Herman Cain, a Georgia businessman and talk-radio host, came in second with 256 votes.

“Palin, a favorite of the conservative movement who was Senator John McCain’s running mate against Obama in 2008, trailed in a distant third place with 149 votes.

“‘Mr. Cain and Rep. Paul’s positions resonated with Tea Party Patriots this weekend,’ said Mark Meckler, the Tea Party Patriots’ national coordinator, of the poll taken at the group’s policy summit in Phoenix over the weekend and online.”

Hope, Change, Control: Barack’s Brave New World

-Gayle Plato-Besley

This week, Senator Barack Obama revisited his tough stand on Global Warming, and his ideas to create lots of subsidized Green jobs.   Obama is a known advocate for saving the planet-

“All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.”
-Barack Obama

Much like his political presidential mentor, President Jimmy Carter:
“We can drift along as though there were still a cold war, wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on weapons that will never be used, ignoring the problems of people in this country and around the world, being one of the worst environmental violators on earth…”
-Jimmy Carter

“The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much we’re contributing to the warming of the earth’s atmosphere and how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.”
Barack Obama

(http://www.woopidoo.com/business_quotes/global-warming.htm)
There it is- the quotes from our political giants and great minds leading us to safety and protection from the Armegeddon awaiting us all; each has his finger on the pulse of the nation full of discontent and polluted thinking.  I say, we must forget all of our old ways of strong foreign policy- we need a national czar or cabinet secretary of Global Conscience.   We are looking at the threat of war, or of terrorism with this hawk mentality.  After all, a polluting, gun and God loving country such as this can only be to blame for all of the fighting. Terrorists hate us, yes, but they have good reason.  We are so self-centered and downright mean.  Just ask Michelle Obama.

Terrorism is a threat though and I have a great idea as to a campaign talking point or platform plank for the Obama-nation Party.  As many operatives were out, tour-de-force, to take down Governor Sarah Palin for having so many kids and for allowing her disabled son to be born,  and brazenly held or cared for by her—while she’s working—they all missed the real point.

We all know that Down Syndrome has been nearly erradicated thanks to genetic testing and God’s gift of abortion (most Down Syndrome babies are aborted: “Recent US studies have indicated that when Down syndrome is diagnosed prenatally, 84% to 91% of those babies will be killed by abortion. This trend is not isolated to the United States. In England, a 2004 study showed that 94% of babies who were diagnosed prenatally with Down syndrome were subsequently aborted.” [ http://www.physiciansforlife.org/content/view/1301/26/]).  These people, like Sarah Palin,  choosing to have these ‘special’ kids are not thinking of the environment. 

All Down Sydrome children are just temptations for terrorists.  Did not the terrorists in the Middle East use these types of kids for bomb backboards? 

Disabled child in suicide attack-
Terrorists used a disabled child as a suicide bomber on election day, Iraqi interior minister Falah al-Naqib said today.
In all, 44 people were killed in a total of 38 bomb attacks on polling stations. Police at the scene of one the Baghdad blasts said the bomber appeared to have Down’s syndrome.
” (http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-16278831-details/Disabled+child+in+suicide+attack/article.do)

Down Syndrome adults are easily mislead and kindly compliant when the explosives are attached. Let’s face it, if terrorists get ahold of a strap-on nuke, we could see a major city wiped out.  Thus, with a nuclear explosion, say- in Chicago or New York City, the greenhouse effect of the bomb’s energy, the pollution from the blast will significantly increase the effects of Global Warming.  PEOPLE, we cannot risk environmental peril!

According to Allen F. Phillips, M.D., “The weather conditions prevailing, and the time of day the bomb exploded, would both influence the degrees of damage. For example, the radii for skin burns and blindness would depend on the weather. Mist or fog reduces the range of the heat and light rays; on the other hand, darkness dilates the pupils of the eyes increasing the probability of severe eye damage from the flash. ” (http://www.3ammagazine.com/magazine/issue_4/articles/nuclear_bomb_effects.html)

Now you see,  if it’s too hot outside or even cloudy, we cannot be sure of how bad the bomb might be.  Also, the long-distance range of the bomb- beyond that six square miles region  at ground zero where people become  x-ray shots on the brick walls- all of the people wandering around ill, and the dead bodies piling up will definitely pollute the area.  With the mass distruction,  the bodies will possibly contaminate the waters and eco-system!  Local fish and wildlife preserves will be tainted for years to come–and all of the mess and squallor!  Not to mention the bad weather.

So as a way to be pro-active and assure less temptation for potential global peril, and frankly as a way to purify the world, clensing us of oddities or anyone that’s too different, consider keeping all special needs children, Down Sydrome and the rest of ’em, off of the planet.  Look at this, even a smart professor agrees and he’s got a doctorate:

CHAPEL HILL – A professor’s comments on Down syndrome and abortion angered some students on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus this week. Professor Albert Harris told students in his embryology class Monday that he thinks fetuses with Down syndrome should be aborted.

In his lecture notes, he wrote:

‘In my opinion, the moral thing for older mothers to do is to have amniocentesis, as soon during pregnancy as is safe for the fetus, test whether placental cells have a third chromosome #21, and abort the fetus if it does. The brain is the last organ to become functional.’ “(http://www.newsobserver.com/news/health_science/story/947991.html)

As I see it, we need more eggheads- graduates from Ivy League Schools- telling us how to live and procreate, because we are obviously not capable of running things, with all of our misplaced ‘Audacity of Hope’ for our children, odd as they might just be.

 

 

 

Sarah Palin Brings Feminism Into the 21st Century

by  Gayle Plato-Besley

The 19th century Suffrage movement led to the 19th Amendment and the right to vote for all women.  Elizabeth Cady Stanton died 18 years short of the ratification.  She also missed how 20th century feminism mutated into a distain of family, demeaning propaganda pushed on us all that children get in the way of life.  On one hand, Hillary and others can say it takes a whole village to raise a child, but if you bring those beautiful babies out into village square, free women lose substance. 

Governor Sarah Palin is not following the rules sisters.   Too many 20th Century ‘feminists’ gave up their pregnancies and burned their intimate unmentionables so Mrs. Palin could stand in her coveted spot. Palin should get good child care.  To parade her pregnant daughter and cooing four month old onto the stage while she celebrates her newfound candidacy, it’s not the Feminist Movement of Liberal Radicalism 

Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton put millions of cracks into the glass ceiling and here comes Governor Palin, busting the safety glass with a hockey stick- GOAL!   The donkeys cannot deny the big elephant in the living room.  Oh, and that’s Governor, Vice Presidential Candidate, Mrs. Elephant to you.

Once upon a time, back before the Civil War, was a group of active abolitionists fighting for rights of people of color.  Some of those freedom fighters also became the original feminists.  The Suffrage Movement was led by great women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony.  Though written of before here, there is good reason to revisit why this new Vice Presidential candidate is so important. Stanton set the standard for true feminism. Sarah Palin is a 21st century abolitionist–abolishing the hijacking of feminism.  Suffrage sings on with Sarah.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton believed in a woman’s right to work, to own property, to custody rights, and most notably, she believed in a woman’s right to be a mother and a member of society.  Stanton felt parenthood was disrespected and children were seen as a burden: that take was an offense to her and exemplified the repression of all women. 

 We know of how  Barack  Obama stated that he did not want his daughters to be burdened with a baby.

The Safety Glass shattered this week in cloud of baby powder, with a hockey puck between the eyes of all liberal feministas.  This- Sarah: Plain and Tall, not only wears a bra it seems, but unclips for nursing.  Sarah  Palin celebrated he big family with all of its typical issues.   Sarah  Palin dares to show God has blessed her- through hard work, and also in His gorgeous, unexpected Glory.

 

Sonoran Alliance Aced Palin McCain VP Pick

 

-Gayle Plato-Besley, M. Ed.

 

As a Sonoran Alliance writer, I recall my blog post -a predictive recommendation of Sarah Palin,  June 4, 2008. I posted exactly 88 years after the Women’s Right to Vote was officially proposed, ultimately becoming the Nineteenth Amendment on August 26, 1920:

http://sonoranalliance.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=2376

 

Let me take a moment to highlight the relevance of the history of this choice of Governor Sarah Palin-

Women’s right to vote was fundamentally organized by Elizabeth Cady Staton.  Abortion, though illegal, was a reality in 1920 as it is today.  Women have been forced and brainwashed to believe that children are a burden, and Stanton fought brilliantly to defend women, mothers, and children.

Also blogged at Sonoran Alliance and at therightwoman.blogtownhall.com: http://therightwoman.blogtownhall.com/2008/01/21/refusing_to_choose2.thtml

 is the TRUE history of the women’s movement of nearly 90 years ago.  These leading feminists of the original devotion were complete supporters of life:

Elizabeth Cady Stanton celebrated her seven children and praised motherhood in a time when being a mother was not often honored nor recognized as a special calling. 

Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote:

“When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading  to women that we should treat our children as property and dispose of them as we see fit (Stanton letter to Julia Ward Howe,1873)”


Both Stanton and Susan B. Anthony were vehemently against abortion; they advocated for social acceptance of women, mothers, families and children as full beings.  It is sad that the concept of feminism has shifted to such an anti-family, negative association of motherhood and success.  It is a tragedy that women have allowed the evolution of such a fringe, anti-family view of women’s rights.  Women, in general, have accepted the con that having a baby is an impediment, a trap, keeping us from growth.  Just ask Barack and Michelle Obama about the fear of a daughter being burdened by motherhood. 

 All of this changes today with the selection of Sarah Palin as the Vice Presidential Republican Candidate, 88 years after the Women’s Right to Vote became reality.  

“Peace Begins in the Womb” and “Women Deserve Better than Abortion”.  Sarah Palin is the Elizabeth Cady Stanton of the 21st Century.
