Mourdock For Indiana

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

I join commonsense conservatives in endorsing Richard Mourdock to be the next Senator from Indiana. Conservatives of all stripes are uniting behind Richard Mourdock. It’s not just Indiana that benefits from sending the right Senator to serve for the right reasons; the nation as a whole benefits, and that is one reason why the eyes of so many around the nation are focused on the Indiana race.


Indiana deserves a conservative in the Senate who will fight for the Hoosier State, uphold our Constitution, and not just go along to get along with the vested interests of the permanent political class in D.C.


Richard Mourdock is the conservative choice for Indiana. Senator Lugar’s 36 years of service as a Senator are appreciated, but it’s time for the torch to pass to conservative leadership in Washington that promises to rein in government spending now.


Get the facts here. Learn more about Richard Mourdock at www.richardmourdock.com and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

If I Wanted America to Fail, I’d Ban Kids From Farm Work

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

The Obama Administration is working on regulations that would prevent children from working on our own family farms. This is more overreach of the federal government with many negative consequences. And if you think the government’s new regs will stop at family farms, think again.


My family is a commercial fishing family, and commercial fishing in Alaska is much like the family farm (but the year 'round farmers no doubt work harder than we do!). I guarantee fishing families wouldn’t stand for this nonsensical intrusion into our lives and livelihoods, and, as a former 4-H member, I don’t believe farm families will either. Our kids learn to work and to help feed America on our nation’s farms, and out on the water.


Federal government: get your own house in order and stop interfering in ours.

How Obama Repaid Notre Dame

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Back in May 2009, during the controversy over Notre Dame’s decision to have President Obama as their commencement speaker and honorary degree recipient, I gave a short statement to the Boston Herald: “My favorite grandpa, Clem James Sheeran, was Catholic. Irish to the core, his favorite place (other than church) was Notre Dame. I can’t imagine what he would think as the university recognizes someone who contradicts the core values of the Catholic faith by promoting an anti-life agenda.”


In his latest Washington Post column, Michael Gerson writes about the Obama administration’s war on Catholic institutions with President Obama’s decision to strip conscience protections from Catholic universities, hospitals and charities.


As Gershon points out, the timing of Obama’s most recent slap won’t go unnoticed by the faithful: “In politics, the timing is often the message. On Jan. 20 — three days before the annual March for Life — the Obama administration announced its final decision that Catholic universities, hospitals and charities will be compelled to pay for health insurance that covers sterilization, contraceptives and abortifacients. Preparing for the march, Catholic students gathered for Mass at Verizon Center. The faithful held vigil at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Knights of Columbus and bishops arrived to trudge in the cold along the Mall. All came to Washington in time for their mocking.”


And in this we see how the faithful at Notre Dame got snookered and how Obama has shamefully repaid their faith in him:


Both radicalism and maliciousness are at work in Obama’s decision — an edict delivered with a sneer… 


The implications of Obama’s choice will take years to sort through. The immediate impact can be measured on three men:


Consider Catholicism’s most prominent academic leader, the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame. Jenkins took a serious risk in sponsoring Obama’s 2009 honorary degree and commencement address — which promised a “sensible” approach to the conscience clause. Jenkins now complains, “This is not the kind of ‘sensible’ approach the president had in mind when he spoke here.” Obama has made Jenkins — and other progressive Catholic allies — look easily duped.

Fun way to spend Labor Day: Sarah Palin’s Alaska Marathon

Are you looking for something fun to do with family and friends who are home today with Labor Day off? Kevin DuJan at HillBuzz.org suggests taking a vicarious adventure through America’s last frontier with the Palin family via a Sarah Palin’s Alaska Marathon at your house.



There are many marathons on TV today, considering how many people are home from work this Monday without any real, set plans for Labor Day. If you haven’t already cooked up something special to do with your own family and friends, how about taking an adventure to Alaska by watching a marathon of Sarah Palin’s Alaska? It’s an especially appropriate thing to do, since Governor Palin actually ran a surprise half marathon in Iowa yesterday (registering under her maiden name to be able to do this incognito until the last moment).

With Amazon Instant Video streaming, you can watch all 9 episodes of Sarah Palin’s Alaska on your computer, or download them to a mobile device or your TV, using either magic or technology, your choice.

Today, Justin and I are watching some of our friends’ kids, with a few of our own friends coming over for lunch too, so we’ll have an interesting little focus group of viewers here at Buzzquarters to view the entire 9-part travelogue series.

While none of these people are Obama supporters, some of them have bought into the media’s lies that Governor Palin can’t win the presidency or they’ve parroted some of the nonsense that “she’s too polarizing”.

I want to see if a marathon of Sarah Palin’s Alaska can alter their opinion, since from the start I saw this series as the most inventing and interesting campaign commercial in history.

Governor Palin has been running for president since 2008, in a stealth and skillfully strategic campaign much like how she entered that Iowa marathon without the parrots and twits in the media noticing.  The Governor flies under the radar and smack in the face of convention. It’s one of the top ten things I love about her.

Cross your fingers for us today, because I’m attempting a baked Alaska recipe I’ve always wanted to try, though the Jewel grocery store was fresh out of mooseburgers (can you imagine that?). It’s going to be a fun Labor Day taking this adventure to Alaska with our next First Family.

I hope you consider making the trek yourselves via Sarah Palin’s Alaska!

P.S. – Check back later, as we’ll recap and live-blog the episodes as we watch them, with commentary from our guests recorded as a running focus group during the marathon.

Shh: Tea Party Candidate Within 1% of Obama

Move along please! Nothing to see here!


A survey of 1,000 Likely Voters conducted August 15-16, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports reveals that a Tea Party candidate would trail Barack Hussein Obama by just 1% if the election were held today. (That’s within the 3% margin of error.) Rasmussen is considered by Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives to be a relatively reliable source of polling data.

The GOP and the media will both work hard to ignore these results and pretend this candidate doesn’t exist. Move along…nothing to see here.

Obama Plays Golf On Martha's Vinyard While America Circles Drain

Shhh! Don’t tell anyone I’m losing to the Tea Party!

The GOP will ignore the will of the voters, because they’re The Ruling Class Establishment Cocktail Party of Stupid, and the media will ignore voter preference because they understand that they need to push a white bread (no crust) mayo and cucumber milquetoast Establishment Cocktail Party “It’s His Turn” candidate to have any chance of installing their dreamboat Barack Hussein Obama as the First Historic Re-Elected Black President.”

Here are the survey results:

Barack Hussein Obama: 39%
Tea Party Candidate: 38%
Some Other Candidate: 14%
Undecided: 8%

Here’s where the statistics get really interesting.

–61% of Republicans would vote for the Tea Party candidate.
–Only 78% of Democrats would vote for Barack Hussein Obama.
–The Tea Party candidate beats Obama by 10% among Independent Likely Voters, 43% to 33%.

And that’s the key. For the right platform, Democrat and Independent likely voters would jump off the Hopeychange Parade Float with the spotlights and styrofoam columns and actually vote for a Republican.

Here are the lessons that the Cocktail Party is likely to ignore in their headlong, media-assisted rush to install an “It’s His Turn” John McCain-style “moderate.”

Enough of these formerly employed, middle-class likely voters have spent time collecting food stamps and unemployment during the Obama Regime to consider voting for a candidate with a “radical” view of federal government spending (it spends too much), a “radical” view of the National Debt (it’s treasonously high), and a “radical” view of entitlement programs (Social Security and Medicare are going to go broke in the next 15 years so we have to privatize them as other countries have successfully done.)

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate who wants us to protect our own borders instead of borrowing money from China to protect Germany’s borders.

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate who wants to repeal ObamaCare, allow purchase of health insurance across state lines, and provide tax credits and deductions for all medical expenses.

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate, even though he’s a Christian and is pro-life.

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate who wants to audit the Federal Reserve and find out which foreign countries got trillion-dollar secret stimulus payments.

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate who would prevent the TSA from randomly fondling children, 95-year-old cancer patients, and disabled veterans while leaving air travelers who fit the profile of Islamic terrorists totally unmolested.

Democrats and Independents are willing to vote for a “radical” Tea Party candidate who has read the Constitution, understands it, respects it, and voted according to it for over 20 years.

This is bad, bad news for the Cocktail Party GOP Establishment. Unless, of course, they put down their cocktails and finger sandwiches long enough to notice the handwriting on the wall.

The Tea Party platform will be the winning platform in 2012. And any credible GOP candidate who runs on this platform can beat Barack Hussein Obama, because they’ll draw away votes from Independents and Democrats.

Who is the specific Tea Party candidate in this particular survey? He’s the candidate who gets the least amount of coverage by the overwhelmingly Democrat news media. And when they do cover him, they call him “a fringe” candidate. Hmmm. Wonder why that is?

He’s the candidate who is attacked most often by the Establishment GOP leadership as being “unelectable.” Hmmm, what’s up with that?

Read the poll results to get the startling news that you won’t hear anywhere else: Ron Paul could beat Barack Hussein Obama if the election were held today and it rained hard enough to keep just a tiny percentage of disillusioned black voters at home.

And here’s a preemptive response for everyone who’s about to leave a knee-jerk comment about Ron Paul.

Did you read his positions on the issues, or did you rely on the news media to tell you who to vote for?

Did you form your opinion based on what other candidates say about him or how his (alleged) supporters behave?

Most objections I’ve heard about Ron Paul have to do with national defense. Well, here are his positions. Are you surprised? Are they different than you thought? Are they “radical?” Do they match what you heard reported by the news media?

Did you do your own homework before you formed your opinion of this candidate, or did you listen to perennial Cocktail Party A-Listers like Dana Perino and Bill Kristol, who don’t want you to “throw away” your vote on an “unelectable” candidate and stick with someone “safe” like Mittens Romneycare, because, after all, it’s his turn?

More questions the GOP Ruling Elite can’t even ask, much less answer:

  • What is it about Ron Paul’s platform that is so appealing to Independents?
  • What is so appealing to Democrats?
  • What we learn from the above?

We can elect a Tea Party candidate (a Ron Paul or a Sarah Palin or a Michelle Bachman), but only if we refuse to be manipulated–by either the Cocktail Party GOP or the news media–during the primary process.

Let’s assume for a moment that ANYONE can beat BHO if the economy continues to tank (and I think it will). I think the media knows that, and I think that’s why they will do ANYTHING to make sure Mittens Romneycare or John Huntsman is the GOP nominee. (I believe the media thinks Rick Perry is just there to be the anti-Romney. They will tear him down when the time comes.)

Let’s assume we will be stuck with whomever the GOP nominates for the next four years. It’s may be the only opportunity we have to truly return the USA to its constitutional roots and save the country from complete economic collapse.

Can you imagine Mittens Romney dismantling Obamacare? Can you imagine him reforming entitlements? What about John Huntsman–can you picture him getting tough on the TSA (or, anything)? Can you picture John Huntsman reforming the tax code?

The next six months are crucial to the future of our country. This is the only chance we have to choose a candidate who can pull votes from Tea Party, Republican, Democrat and Independent voters, and–just as important–cares more about bringing us back from the brink of doom once he or she is in office than about getting re-elected.

Let’s not screw it up.

(H/T Freedom’s Lighthouse for the perfect Obama photo. No, he’s totally not gay.)

Why it’s important to call out bullies who attack those with special needs…

Yesterday, I wrote an expose on the Chicago gay talk show “Only@Brunch”, hosted by Jared Hall with co-hosts Bradley Thomas Balof, Jesse Budlong, Terrence Chappell, Craig Alexander Rathwell, and Brian Felder because their broadcast not only included the stereotypically catty and low-information attacks on conservative and Christian women (like Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Governor Sarah Palin) that much of America expects from the gay community (as shameful as this reality may be), but really crossed a line of poor taste by mocking Trig Palin, a special needs toddler (pictured above), who is happily living his life and bringing great joy to all around him (mercifully oblivious to the childish hatred aimed at him by some vocal members of Chicago’s Boystown gay community).

The expose dealt with how shamefully the “Only@Brunch” boys behaved, and how terrible and ugly the gay community is for mocking someone with special needs.

Today, however, I want to focus on Trig and the millions of people in the world like him and just how wonderful and beautiful they really are.

I believe Trig Palin is an angel undercover sent to us, at this moment in time, on a very special mission from God to teach all of us the importance of life, love, and finding the courage to do what we know in our hearts is right, no matter the personal costs or the threats made to keep us quiet.

This joyful little boy is too young for preschool, but he’s taught me so very much in the three years that he’s been in the often cruel and unforgiving glare of the national spotlight. I was lucky enough to hear Governor Palin speak last year here in Illinois, on Trig’s second birthday no less, and the Governor included in her remarks that day a mention of how Trig greets each morning in his own special way. She said as soon as he wakes up and opens his eyes he bolts upright, so happy to be alive, so delighted by the light coming through the windows and warming up his room. The Governor said Trig claps his hands, giggling and smiling, thrilled by the adventures ahead of him in this new day.

Over the last few months, I’ve had some serious medical issues that caused me great physical pain, and put me in a very miserable place for a while. Dealing with chronic pain like that was a major challenge for me, and recovering from this illness was excruciating most days. It was hard to move, impossible to write, and so lonely feeling very cut off from the world. I can assure you I did not wake up every day, smiling and laughing, clapping my hands with delight.

But, you know what, I honestly thought of that Trig anecdote the Governor told us that evening last year, and I willed myself out of bed on the really bad days by imagining a part of his exuberance in me, when I otherwise couldn’t muster the strength to move forward.

I never had a touchstone like that until I knew about Trig. Sitting here writing this now, I can’t imagine what I would have done if I hadn’t heard that story about Trig greeting each day with a laugh and bright spirit of adventure. I don’t know what else could have inspired me, motivated me, and encouraged me so easily.

I am, thus, incredibly grateful to the little guy.

That industrious angel undercover who, from thousands of miles away in Alaska, brought such joy and comfort to my life when I needed it most, just by being his own perfect little self.

Since I live not only in the very Leftist, urban, environment of Chicago, but also in the gay enclave of Boystown on top of that, I doubt many of my neighbors or the young hipsters I pass on the street would ever call Trig Palin or other special needs children “perfect”, because people on the Left have a shockingly low tolerance for “imperfection” of any kind. Clothes need to have the priciest designer labels. Phones need the most stylish accessories, the highest price tags, and a surfeit of bells, whistles, and killer apps. Even their dogs and cats need to ride the latest fads, or cause great embarrassment to their image-obsessed owners.

I pity these people, since they’d struggle to find anything perfect about a child with special needs. One of the weird, obsessive reasons those on the Left hate Governor Palin so much is because she’s proudly Trig’s mom, and that she very much chose to have him. That confounds and infuriates the Left, since Sarah and Todd Palin knew they were going to have a baby with Down Syndrome and celebrated his arrival with magnificent gusto. Trig’s sisters and brother adore him. Trig’s grandparents love him to pieces. Palin’s entire staff, in all the photos I’ve ever seen of them with Trig, would do just about anything for the little guy.  You can see it in their faces when they all look at him.  Trig, of course, looks back with nothing but love, trust, and innocence.

He’s remarkable.

I’m glad he’s in our world.

That’s why it pains me so much to see gay men like the “Only@Brunch” gang bully people with special needs and mock them on their TV show. This happens quite a lot here in Boystown, actually, I am very much ashamed to say. That’s probably partly the nature of such a looks and image obsessed environment like the gay scene, but there’s a real sense of evil that manifests in grown men mocking a toddler over anything…but especially so when it’s because he is a special needs baby.

I actually think this might be part of Trig’s mission as an angel undercover, since his presence on the national scene causes evil to present itself so clearly. Here in Boystown, I’ve gotten into a few confrontations with gay men who decided to aim their hatred of the Governor at her special needs son. The first time it happened, I was just walking down the street on my way home, not long before the November 2008 election, and a group of guys much like the “Only@Brunch” gang were making fun of the Palins, and in particular little Trig.  Thinking I was of similar mind, they tried engaging me in their conversation and I told them they were monsters for picking on a little baby. One of them, quite drunk, and upset I stood up for the Governor and her family, took a swing at me. In a series of slapstick little accidents that followed, I dodged the punch, lost my balance ducking backwards, toppled over a railing, and somehow managed to grab ahold of the bully’s shirt on my way down (while I was trying to stay upright). We both ended up on the ground, with me ripping his shirt right off him on a chilly October night.

That was the first time anyone had ever taken a punch at me in my life, and it was because I told a gay bully not to make fun of a special needs baby. Those on the Left have a determined and vested interest in bullying — and even trying to physically assault — anyone in the gay community who won’t stand for their behavior, because if too many gays speak out and confront this bullying, the Left wouldn’t be able to use gays as a goon squad to attack conservative and Christian women or their families.

The Left, and the Democrat Party it controls, doesn’t particularly like gays, but finds us useful for just two things:  as a fundraising source with unlimited disposable income (the gAyTM, as it’s called in our circles) and as bullies dispatched to attack Republicans, since gays can shout about conservatives being homophobic and Christians being evil, with the media never willing to take gays to task for their truly shameful behavior.

Another time I clearly remember standing up for Trig in public here in Boystown happened at a restaurant late at night, when I heard another gay guy making fun of little Trig to a friend, mocking him for being special needs. I think he managed to talk for about a minute before I decided to get up from my table and tell him how shamefully he was behaving. The waitresses, the cook, and my fellow customers had no idea what I was doing, but I felt I needed to call this guy out and make sure he understood that mocking someone with Down Syndrome is not acceptable behavior for a full grown man, regardless of what opinion he has of the child’s mother.

As I left the restaurant, the guy of course shouted a bunch of expletives at me, which is fine because I’m certainly used to it. Calling the gay community out on the terrible things it does on behest of the Left has won me few fans in Boystown. But, I’m 34 years old so they can attack me all they wish. I can take it. I’ve been treated worse by far better than these clowns. Just leave three year olds with Down Syndrome alone.

While writing the expose on the “Only@Brunch” bullies and those who support them, I thought about all the hatred directed at Trig in the gay community and realized what a litmus test this amounts to in terms of the sort of people I want to be around. In a bar out in Boystown, if I hear guys talking like they do on the “Only@Brunch” show, mocking a special needs child because they think this hurts Governor Palin and helps Obama in some way, I realize, quite obviously, these are people I’d never want to socialize with.  These are people who bring great shame to the gay community, and even those who don’t go that extra step and film themselves being so cruel and evil have indeed great evil in their hearts.

Maybe that’s little Trig’s secret mission as an angel undercover, to force this evil in the gay community to reveal itself so all of you reading this can be aware of how often gay people (who claim to be victims at the hands of conservatives and Christians) are so often the victimizers of defenseless innocents who have special needs.

The media only covers incidents of gays being bullied, which they then blow far out of proportion to epidemic status…all the while ignoring the reality that gays are much more often the bullies themselves, picking on not just Trig Palin and special needs babies like him, but aiming toned-down versions of this mocking hatred at just about anyone who doesn’t meet their particular definition of perfection.

The funniest thing in this whole sad affair is how certain I am that the “Only@Brunch” guys more likely than not turn on each other like this too, because it seems to be part of their very nature. There’s six of them at a table on their show, supposedly having brunch (while it’s pitch black and looks like midnight outside on the street). I wonder what they talk about when one of them gets up to use the washroom or smoke a cigarette. The other five probably turn on him, because that’s just what guys like this do.

I can’t ever look at someone the same way ever again if I’ve heard him mock Trig Palin or others with special needs. I also never again have the same opinion of anyone I see let attacks like this pass unchallenged.

It’s scary to confront people on their bad behavior, I will grant you that. It’s especially hard if you’re in an environment where you feel outnumbered, or where there’s great peer pressure to keep quiet. Things get almost impossibly difficult when you’re in a gay neighborhood, that’s in a Leftist controlled city, that itself is in a blue state, which is receiving constant reinforcement and indoctrination from a media that very much encourages the behavior of the “Only@Brunch” bullies.

At the end of the day (and the end of this article), I just have to say that it’s important to find a way to call people out when they attack those with special needs. Be smart about it, and do it in a way you are comfortable with, but don’t let attacks on Trig Palin or those like him stand unchallenged.

You probably will not successfully shame guys like the “Only@Brunch” bullies from ever doing this sort of thing again, because they will forever insist they did nothing wrong.

But, you more likely than not will send a message to third parties observing the exchange…and not only convince them to never behave this way either, but probably give them encouragement to do what you did in the future when THEY are exposed to bullies (gay, straight, or otherwise) who are following the “Only@Brunch” script.

If little Trig way up there in Alaska can inspire us to stand up for those with special needs, then maybe the act of standing up itself will inspire countless others to live better in myriad ways too.

Trig Palin sees each morning as an exciting chance to start new adventures, make new friends, and revel in the gift of life he was given. He is clearly not wasting a moment of his time here on this Earth and he is having an impact far greater than 99% of the gay guys here in Boystown will ever have.

Come to think of it, that’s probably why most of these bullies hate him so much.

They are jealous of his innate goodness and his obvious decency.

Just wait until January of 2013 when he’s rolling around in the snow on the White House lawn, playing with the Palins’ new Siberian husky puppy, having a blast as the nation’s First Son, bringing his love of life from Alaska down to Pennsylvania Avenue.
