Gov. Palin: Americans Giving Up Freedom for Govt Control

20130717-183406.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Ben Franklin wrote: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

The government needs to stay out of our garage, refrigerator, church, gun safe, bookshelf, etc. America, are you willing to give up freedom for more government control?

Take a look at this article linked at the top of Drudge. Government is out of control and too many citizens are sheepishly and sleepily okay with it all. This is not what generations of Americans have fought and died for. We should be ashamed of ourselves if we give another pass to government on yet another step in the erosion of freedom and privacy.

Enough is enough of this Big Brother Government.

Gov. Palin: “America by Heart” is back!

20130716-134620.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

“America by Heart” is back! I’m very excited that HarperCollins has released “America By Heart” this month in paperback. I hope you’ll enjoy the changes and the new cover photo showing an canadian pharmacy for viagra at the Reagan Ranch. It was such an honor to experience President Reagan’s beautiful ranch and then speak later that day at the Young America’s Foundation’s 100th anniversary celebration of President Reagan’s birthday.

I love the outdoor image for “America By Heart” because the book reflects the values that President Reagan held dear. I explain in my book my decision to use a quote from Reagan as my closing statement during the 2008 vice-presidential debate because his words perfectly expressed our need to preserve and protect the values that made America great. It’s why we won’t give up the fight for what is right. The quote I used in the debate against Joe Biden was this:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the blood-stream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.”

“America By Heart” was written from my heart about “the principles that have made our country great—keeping our government limited, our markets free, and our families strong.” And, as I note in my introduction, “these principles, like all fundamental human truths, are not self-reinforcing. They have to be remembered, cherished, and taught to new generations of Americans.”

If you’d like a copy with the new cover, hopefully you can it at your local bookstore, or order online at:
http://www.harpercollins.com/books/America-by-Heart-Sarah-Palin?isbn=9780062063069&HCHP=TB_America+by+Heart

I do hope you’ll enjoy the encouragement and historical lessons the book provides. Keep the faith!

Gov. Palin: Really, Mark? Really?…Begich’s Voting Record

20130711-095323.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook at 0902 / 9:02 AM EDT:

Really, Mark? Really?

Margaret Thatcher used to say, “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.” So, thank you, Mark Begich, for making me and others exceptionally cheery today! Mark, after looking at your voting record I can see why you are looking for a distraction. You have voted FOR Obamacare, FOR massive tax increases, FOR carbon taxes which could cost Alaskans 21,000 jobs, AGAINST pro-life legislation, and there’s so much more. You even flip-flopped to oppose the nation’s balanced budget amendment. You agree with, and vote with, ultra-liberal Senators Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid approximately 90% of the time. Mark, you recently said, “Alaskans pick who they want based on what’s good for Alaska.” Couldn’t agree more, Mark, which is why many hope to see great changes for our great state following the upcoming 2014 election. In the meantime, we suppose we’ll see much more playing of the ol' Washington political game using those inside D.C. reporters each time you have to distract from yet another bad vote for Alaska in the U.S. Senate. It cheers us up and gives us good opportunity to remind Alaskans just how loyal to the Obama agenda you have been.

Gov. Palin: Most Patriotic Band – “Missing Stateside”

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

As we wrap up a most patriotic week in America, I’d like to share with you the most patriotic band I know! The name is “Missing Stateside,” and it includes rough and tough and amazingly talented vets who’ve served our nation in war zones and have it in their blood to stand ready for whatever selfless duty calls. They’re some of the most patriotic and supportive guys you’ll ever meet. And their music is GREAT! In the interest of full disclosure, I’m very proud of my own connection here – my cousin Jason (“JD”) is the big guy in the band; he’s on guitar and vocals. Jason is from a long line of honorable military men and women. Both his parents served, as did aunts and uncles, and now nephews and others in the family’s younger generation. He and his wonderful wife, Trish, both recently retired from years in the service that took them around the world, away from friends and family, for years. They so missed Stateside… and we’re so glad they’re back. My Airman cousin has been an enormously positive influence on my son, cousins, and my two Washington state nephews who just enlisted (Hooah!). It’s always a pleasure to do anything to support great Americans like the guys in “Missing Stateside.” Please check out their website linked below. I’ll also post some videos. Shout ‘em out, and I’ll look for new friends sporting the band’s tee as we travel this great land.

It Takes a Village… to Slay a Salmon

Former Alaska Governor Palin today posted this Note on Facebook about salmon and halibut fishing:

The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you’ve got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.

 

We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain and queasy waves for which Cook Inlet is notorious. Todd flew his Cessna 185 alongside the Inlet, then on to Pedro Bay, then the next day we drove the scenic Seward Highway to Anchor Point’s salt water, also part of Cook Inlet. The kids and their friends have gone back and forth between work schedules to different fishing grounds this summer, and they’re helping fill the freezer with organic protein for winter! It’s the best. I especially love the halibut, and for weaklings like me, it takes a few of us working together to hike the heavy white meat over the railing to gaff and club it. Then tradition calls for a whole group to sit around a bonfire once ashore to watch one pro (that wouldn’t be me) do all the filleting while we eat.

 

Even more fun than the catch is having the crowd in the kitchen try different ways to cook it. The goal on the water may be to catch the big one, like an 80 lb. king or a “barn door” halibut, but IMHO the best eating is a smaller halibut pulled fresh out of the water and dipped right into the beer batter.

 

It doesn’t really take a village to catch a fish. But it’s fun to have one to eat it up. Here’s how the girls and their friends cooked this weekend’s fish, and I invite you to try this perfect recipe for wild rhubarb pie as an accompaniment. We stayed in a cabin on the Inlet with an old abandoned garden out back, and even without any horticultural care the perennial bushels of rhubarb never seem to go away. So I hacked stalks of this tart leafy plant to feed our village… er, the crew… in Wasilla. I used my mother-in-law’s simple, delicious pie crust recipe (see below) and tried a rhubarb filling recipe I found on the internet. It was heavenly. Piper put together a collage to show you some before and after shots of the outings, along with a few randoms (see below).

 

Something different but still maybe par-for-the-course for us: Bristol took her paycheck from starring in a recent episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” (She and Willow had a ball working with Joan and Melissa Rivers on the episode! Really!) and bought a pontoon. (You can spot it festooned with a big bright American flag in the background of one of Piper’s collages.) So we finally felt like tourists out on our lake putzing around – no gill nets, cork lines, lead lines, chaos – just floatin’ in slow motion. All we’re missing is the heat! I’m glad our girls are learning mechanical skills and a general knowledge of “how stuff works” with their acquiring of various pieces of equipment and large used toys for their Alaskan lifestyle. I respect the hardcore, real world skills needed to keep things running.

(Ed. Note: Celebrity Wife Swap)

 

Enough sport fishing for now though, or as Todd says,”Enough playing with our food,” because our commercial fishing season soon peaks. The guys have headed over to Bristol Bay to slay salmon at our sites while I stay back awhile to get Piper to basketball camps, do some work for FOX, finish my Christmas book, then travel Outside for various events.

 

Have a great pre-Independence Day week. Take time to appreciate the bounty we’re blessed with on God’s green earth. I encourage you to get outdoors, breathe it all in, and be thankful!

 

Enjoy these recipes. Eat dessert first:

Faye Palin’s Simple, Perfect Pie Crust

(Note: This amount makes extra so you can also bake some “Kids’ Crust” with drizzled butter and sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. Plus, if you’re like me, when you indelicately roll out the dough and it falls apart you can use the extra to plug holes and cracks in the pie crust; it tastes just as delicious!)

Caution: if you’re annoyed by these detailed instructions, I don’t want to hear it. I often explain kitchenese in simple and exact terms because my kids followed in my footsteps and took Shop Class in school instead of Home Ec (Do they even teach Home Ec anymore?!). Thankfully, while growing up my mom cooked three squares a day in our small town without any big grocery stores or even a McDonalds, and she was a 4-H and Scout leader, so we all garnered good old-fashioned cooking and sewing skills in those groups and in Campfire Girls. It was through osmosis we learned to cook from mom! Nowadays, not so much. So forgive the elementary instructions – they’re written for my Taco Bell-addicted kids and their peers.

2 1/2 C. flour

2 Tsp. salt

1 C. vegetable oil

6 Tbsp. cold water (You may need a tiny bit more or less cold water to sprinkle in to moisten the dough as you mix it)

Mix flour and salt. Add oil; mix with fork until it looks like meal. Sprinkle with the water; mix with fork or curved pastry blender until it looks like pie dough you may have seen on a TV commercial.

Glob the dough together. Press into three balls, one larger than the others. Roll the larger ball of dough (this is your bottom crust) between two long strips of waxed or parchment paper (so there’s less mess!). Place paper-side-up in pie pan. Peel off the paper and then fill ‘er up with the rhubarb mixture (Click here for recipe); trim edges. Roll the top crust the same way. Trim it ½” beyond pie plate rim. Fold under. Seal and flute. Google “fluting” if you don’t get it. I like pinching the edges using left pointer finger between right finger and thumb. Cut decorative ventilating slits in middle of this top crust (when I bake this as a gift I carve the recipient’s initials in it, but whatever yanks your crank). The key to a golden shiny top crust is to brush on a small amount of milk and sprinkle sugar atop before placing it in the oven.The glaze is gorgeous.

Hint: Measure the flour by dip-level method (meaning level off the cup using a straight edged tool – like the back of a table knife) to guarantee an exact level cup.

Now, most of our family recipes are perfected by eyeballing and just getting a feel for ingredient amounts and baking techniques, but Faye has taught us that by always being exact in these crust measurements, the consistency is always good. When you roll the dough out between the paper sheets, you can roll it very thin. You just have to be patient when you peel back the paper as you place the crust atop the pie. (Maybe that’s my “indelicacy” problem and explains why Faye’s pies look prettier than anyone else’s – one has to exercise patience!) I promise you this is superb!

Final Note to Kids Baking: Do the dishes. Or the pie won’t turn out right.

Recipe for quick halibut preps that family and friends loved the other night, one fried and one grilled… so easy I can’t even mess ‘em up:

Use a store-bought box of beer batter mix and one flat beer (“don’t drink it if the mountains aren’t blue”). You can’t go wrong. (If you’re out camping with limited supplies, you can adapt and use your pancake mix.) Cut halibut into inch-and-a-half sized chunks. Follow instructions on the box of mix and dip fish into the batter to coat the little chunks. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan (I like to cook it outside or else my kitchen smells like fish for three days and no candle masks that), or use a deep fat fryer. Dip these white nuggets into hot oil for a couple of minutes and turn over for just a couple more minutes. Remove the meat and place on paper towels. You’ll know you cooked it long enough if the fish cuts easily with a fork and it’s quite white inside and golden brown crispy outside. Mom makes homemade tarter sauce; I buy it. Either way, serve it up with tarter and/or our newly discovered delight – jalapeno flavored Greek Yogurt Dip – and enjoy this scrumptious fare from the sea!

Another way: place a halibut fillet on Pam-sprayed tinfoil; drizzle with melted butter, lightly sprinkle with lemon pepper, add sliced onions on top, then glob on a mix of mayonnaise and sour cream, then generously pour grated cheeses and crumbled potato chips as the meat’s mountain pose. Cover with foil and place on pre-heated grill or over a campfire. Cook until the meat is white and flakey. Seriously, angels must eat this in the great by-and-by. It’s that good. I wish I could cook it for you.

 

Thank you for following us on social media, thank you for your support; thank you for loving the simple things in life that add to this great country’s exceptionalism.

Miss America 2003 runs for IL-13

SarahNET-Radio-O4PStates

Though Miss America 2003 Erika Harold has endured disgusting attacks, she said during her interview on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla the level of attacks on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin were unprecedented. Harold said anyone who runs for office and doesn’t fit a stereotype will have a hard introduction.

Harold’s accomplishments outside of Miss America include graduating from Harvard Law School, serving on the national steering committee of W Stands for Women, and serving on the Board of Directors for the Prison Fellowship. She’s wanted to run for elective office for a long time, and wishes to engage young voters getting them to vote Republican and for conservative principles.

The former Miss America who is still a practicing lawyer said over regulation and high taxes are crippling small businesses. Harold advocates for crop insurance to help farmers budget and bio-fuels as a way to secure energy independence.

“The Constitution is a foundational document,” she said. She is a strong Second Amendment supporter and has taken on First Amendment issues in her legal career.

Harold said the goal of the Prison Fellowship is to help prisoners become productive, contributing members of society after serving their sentences. She shares Gov. Palin’s values on life and human dignity.

The former Miss America is running in a primary against an appointed incumbent. She said primaries foster competitions, which lead to better outcomes.

Though Harold’s opponents might use her Miss America pageant pictures against her, she said she proud of having been in that pageant. It helped her set goals and helped pay for her Harvard Law School degree.

Her primary is in March 2014. Harold is the second Miss America candidate to have been on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla.

Steel Resolve: Hold Lerner in Contempt

The House Oversight Committee correctly ruled that Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights with her opening statement. Steelman said the Committee should now hold Lerner in Contempt of Congress. Lerner who was Dirctor of the IRS Exempt Organizations division is on administrative leave, in the wake of a scandal in which the IRS targeted Tea Party groups, conservatives, and adoptive parents for harassment.

Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg

Ed. Note: This post originally appeared in Breitbart and was re-released as a Facebook Note.

Former Alaska Governor Palin today posted this Note on Facebook:

Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address.

highwatermark-Palin-Gettysburg-o4pstates

But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or detract” from the great sacrifice made there. Gettysburg was a defining moment in the history of our nation; and consequently, one of the most important battles in the history of mankind.

 

I’ve had the honor of visiting Gettysburg twice, most recently during the One Nation Bus Tour in 2011. I brought my family with me and we met other families—even meeting up with friends traveling from Wasilla—as we paid our respects to the monuments and patriot graves. It was important for me to bring the younger generation there in order to instill in them a sense of the duty we owe to the ordinary men who did extraordinary things to make us one nation.

 

On a sunny summer day there, despite the distance of a hundred and fifty years, you can somehow feel the “mystic cords of memory” binding us to that generation whose “hearts were touched with fire.”

I felt it myself when I visited that day a few years ago. I felt it when I prayed at Little Round Top in gratitude to the unflinching courage of Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and his men from Maine who held the line when the fate of the battle, and hence the nation, was at stake. I felt it when I looked out across the field where Pickett’s Charge took place and contemplated the doomed valor of those men of Old Virginia. I felt it when I stood at the High Water Mark, where Alonzo Cushing gave his life to repel the furthest advance of the Confederate cause and thus end the three-day battle.

 

Gettysburg is where we truly became one nation. It was the decisive battle of a war in which we righted the unfinished business of our founding by freeing those whose enslavement was our greatest shame.

 

We became one nation at Gettysburg not only because we preserved our union there, but also because in the decades following the war, veterans of the Blue and the Gray would come together on the anniversary of those fateful days to shake hands in brotherhood across the once bitter field of battle.

 

Lincoln’s words at Gettysburg were indeed prophetic. The men who “gave the last full measure of devotion” there did not die in vain. Our nation endures and our “government of the people, by the people, for the people” has not perished from the earth.

 

- Sarah Palin

 

You can follow the commemorations at Breitbart.com, which will be providing streaming coverage of the battle re-enactments and memorial ceremonies.

Gov. Palin: Amnesty Bill Betrays Working Class Americans

20130628-130142.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Please take a look at the article linked below to understand how the amnesty bill the Senate passed yesterday is a sad betrayal of working class Americans of every ethnicity who will see their wages lowered and their upward mobility lowered too. And yet we still do not have a secured border. This Senate-approved amnesty bill rewards lawbreakers and won’t solve any problems – as the CBO report notes that millions of more illegal immigrants will continue to flood the U.S. in coming years.

Great job, GOP establishment. You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill, and we needed them to “enlarge that tent” of which you so often speak. It’s depressing to consider that the House of Representatives is threatening to pass some version of this nonsensical bill in the coming weeks.

Once again, I’ll point out the obvious to you: it was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote. Legal immigrants respect the rule of law and can see how self-centered a politician must be to fill this amnesty bill with favors, earmarks, and crony capitalists’ pork, and call it good. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.

Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party – and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American. Now we turn to watch the House. If they bless this new “bi-partisan” hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines.

Gov. Palin: SUPPORT TROOPATHON

20130627-141614.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

SUPPORT TROOPATHON

The annual Troopathon event is broadcasting live today from the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California. Today, I’m in a remote area in Alaska (in Illiamna in Bristol Bay) and heading back in Todd’s float plane to do an interview for Hannity’s show on Fox in a few hours from our house. But I’m with friends at Troopathon in spirit from the far North and offer my support to this worthy cause.

Troopathon is a wonderful way to show support for our brave men and women in uniform by sending care packages to our troops in combat zones. They’re willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for us. So Troopathon is the very least a grateful nation can do for them. This is just one small way for us to show them the love and appreciation they deserve.

All it takes is a simple care package with a personalized note of thanks to show them that they aren’t forgotten. Imagine if you were deployed halfway around the world, not having seen your parents, husband, wife, son or daughter in months. You’re tired, sweaty, and probably somewhat lonely. And then out of the blue you are handed a care package with a sincere note of appreciation from an American back home. What a difference that little gesture makes!

Please tune in today from 1-8pm to watch Troopathon (watch online at breitbart.com).

You can find out how to send a care package by going to troopathon.org or calling 866-866-6372.

Let’s show our brave troops the generous heart of a grateful nation.

Gov. Palin: Watch Greta Van Susteren Video about Sudan

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Take a look at this video from Greta van Susteren about Sudan. We need to appreciate faith-based private charities like Samaritan’s Purse that offer hope. They continue to engage in tough, thankless tasks to provide for those who face seemingly insurmountable challenges. Thank God for these charitable people who have such big hearts to serve, and remember we can all help by contributing time and money to worthy private organizations that successfully help mankind.

Gov. Palin: Holes in the Border As Big As the Holes in Their Amnesty Bill

sarah-facebook-o4p

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Holes in the Border As Big As the Holes in Their Amnesty Bill

Just like they did with Obamacare, some in Congress intend to “Pelosi” the amnesty bill. They’ll pass it in order to find out what’s in it. And just like the unpopular, unaffordable Obamacare disaster, this pandering, rewarding-the-rule-breakers, still-no-border-security, special-interests-ridden, 24-lb disaster of a bill is not supported by informed Americans.

I am an ardent supporter of legal immigration. I’m proud that our country is so desirable that it has been a melting pot making a diverse people united as the most exceptional nation on earth for over two centuries. But I join every American with an ounce of common sense insisting that any discussion about immigration must center on a secure border. The amnesty bill before the Senate is completely toothless on border security.

It’s beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security. Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator Thune’s amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who’ve already broken the law to be here. And if shooting down the border fence wasn't proof enough, they blew another chance by killing Senator Paul’s “Trust But Verify” amendment which required the completion of a fence in five years and required Congress to vote on whether the border is actually secure before furthering any immigration measures. And then they blew it yet again, nixing Senator Cornyn’s “Results” amendment, which also required border enforcement standards. Now the Senate’s pro-amnesty crowd is offering a fig leaf to security via the Corker-Hoeven Amendment, but this is really nothing more than empty promises. It’s amnesty right now and border security… eh, well, someday.

If this bill was genuinely concerned with border security, it might include practical solutions for those states that live with the problem every single day. Pass-through grants could be given to border states to actually build a fence. The most responsive and responsible level of government is the most local, and since governors accept pass-throughs all the time, this is a workable solution. We could also free up more federal lands along the border to be privatized. The farmers and ranchers would have a clear incentive to keep their private property secure from the flow of illegal immigrants and/or other illegal activities trafficked across the border onto land they’d cultivate. There are plenty of other commonsense solutions, but this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs.

When every commonsense, concrete, and verifiable measure to secure the border is stripped away, despite politicians’ promises, what are we supposed to rely on to ensure that our currently unsecured border will be fixed in the future? If D.C. expects us to just sit back and “trust” them despite our permanent political class and Washington bureaucrats proving themselves so very untrustworthy, then I have a bridge to somewhere in Alaska to sell them. Our government is awash in one scandal after another involving blatant lies and violations of our basic liberties, and the leader of the pack ventures out on one road trip after another to avoid accountability.

Just like they did for Obamacare, the permanent political class is sugaring this bill with one goody after another to entice certain senators to vote for it. Look no further than page 983 of the bill, which contains a special visa exemption for foreign seafood workers in the 49th state despite huge unemployment numbers in the American workforce. This is obviously a hidden favor designed to buy the votes of Alaska Senators Murkowski and Begich.

And just like Obamacare, this amnesty bill fails on every level of economic sanity and sane reform. It offers no solutions. It will barely slow the flow of illegal immigration, which means we can expect millions and millions of new illegal aliens in coming years. Sort of what happened when we passed amnesty in 1986 without securing our borders first.

According to the CBO, the bill won’t stop illegal immigration, but it will drive down wages for average hardworking Americans. These would be the same blue-collar working class voters of every ethnicity who chose to sit home in 2012 instead of turning out to vote in the swing states we needed to carry in order to stop Barack Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” of America. I note this just as a helpful reminder to those who believe the hyperventilated new hype claiming that conservatives need to support this bill in order to win future elections. That’s 100% wrong. The crony capitalists in D.C. and their corporatist friends on Wall Street might think this amnesty boondoggle is a great idea, but the average American worker in our middle class who'll soon see lower wages is the one left out in the cold, along with those hard working immigrants who followed the rules and are working here legally.

Passing this bill with an unsecured border and within a growing welfare state under Barack Obama is economic insanity. Have people already forgotten that our bankrupt government is running up massive unsustainable deficits every year? We can’t afford to pay the piper now, much less the trillions of dollars more in welfare and entitlements for the millions who are here illegally today that will be granted this bill’s benefits. According to the Heritage Foundation, the bill provides only a temporary delay in granting illegal immigrants eligibility for all U.S. welfare and entitlement programs. We’re looking at an explosion of costs in the very near future. There is no way to pay for the added untold millions of new enrollees in these growing government programs. Pass this, Congress, and Obama will have succeeded in fundamentally transforming America.

Again, I am supportive of legal immigration and am as sympathetic as the next person to the aspirations of people who come here to work hard and live a better life than the poverty and unfree environments they left behind. So many are drawn here because we are an exceptional nation where freedom provides an equal opportunity for everyone to work hard and make something of themselves. But a key part of American exceptionalism is the rule of law. Border security is fundamental to the rule of law, as is incentivizing those who follow the legal path to citizenship instead of punishing them by promoting lawbreakers. This is non-negotiable.

It’s time our lawmakers remember that we are a sovereign nation of laws. This bill ignores that, and ignores the will of the people. The continued porous border goes against what politicians assured us was in this mountain-high bill, and in typical D.C. style it flies in the face of what many politicians campaigned on. I heard their campaign promises. You heard them, too.

It’s time for concerned Americans to flood our legislators’ phone lines with the input they need to hear from We the People. Join the mama grizzlies who are rearing up tirelessly to swat away false claims that amnesty is a good thing. Michelle Malkin rightly said the issue is not secure the border first, it’s “secure the border. Period.” Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter have also offered superb warnings on amnesty’s economic impacts to the middle class.

As the Senate moves to pass amnesty, the only bright spot in this travesty is the rallying revolution we can look forward to. For just as opposition to Obamacare became a rallying cry for the 2010 midterm elections, opposition to this fundamentally transforming amnesty bill will galvanize the grassroots in next year’s elections. And 2014 is just around the corner.

Gov. Palin: “Politicians wonder why we can’t trust them?”

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Politicians wonder why we can’t trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty Bill for politicians like Begich & Murkowski to exempt AK seafood workers.

Candidate Rubio: ‘Earned Path to Citizenship is Basically Code for Amnesty’

amnesty-article-6-23-2013-o4pstates

If we are to believe candidate Marco Rubio’s comments during an Oct. 24, 2010 debate, it seems the Florida senator’s views on immigration reform have ‘evolved’ quite a bit since taking office.

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Watch this beautiful video of 3-year-old Grayson Clamp hearing his dad for the first time thanks to a breakthrough in technology for the deaf. Grayson was a foster child that the Clamps adopted knowing that he faced these extra challenges and wanting to love him even more because of them. These people are truly salt of the earth. God bless them and their beautiful family.

Gov. Palin: Check out “Cashin’ In” FNC, Sat, 11:30 EDT

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Check out "Cashin’ In" this Saturday at 11:30am ET (7:30am AK time) on FNC, with replay at 4:30pm ET. Eric Bolling and I will talk about our federal government’s many abuse scandals. What’s needed now is an empowerment of the average American, "the little guy", who knows that a healthy distrust of our federal government is warranted. Today, the Washington-connected permanent political class are cashing in on the backs of the little guys. I say enough is enough. Are enough of us "little guys" ready for a revolution against government corruption?
