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 iconic day of riding 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 inv
