Shushannah Walshe's Fair And Balanced Write Up Of Palin's Departure From Fox Puts Rest of Gleeful Biased Media To Shame

Whilst I of course don't agree with everything that Shushannah Walshe has written about Sarah Palin's departure from Fox I have to, happily, say it is genuinely "fair and balanced." Even the title "What's next for Sarah Palin" stands out for its journalistic integrity.

Whilst one doesn't have to be a Palin supporter  to want to read about her Fox departure it is shameful that only one major journalist has stood back and done what journalists are supposed to do-report the facts in an unbiased straightforward manner-Walshe is to be highly commended for this.

On the other hand it is sad that such commendation should have to be given for just doing ones job-but such is the overwhelming leftist bias in the media that it is a breath of fresh air to see such a novelty .

Her piece at ABC News marks a massive departure from the various gleeful hit pieces the leftist media has rolled out over the last few day. Here is the introductory page-please read the full article AT THIS LINK;

Reporters Notebook: By (@shushwalshe)
Jan. 29, 2013


"Sarah Palin's break up with Fox News should not have been, well, breaking news, as she had publicly complained in August on Facebook that the network had canceled her appearances at the Republican National Convention. And going back even further, Palin didn't give Fox the scoop in October 2011 when she announced she wasn't going to run for president. Still, the news of the Fox split overtook Twitter and the news cycle by storm.
One thing I've learned in my years covering Palin, which began on Aug. 29, 2008, when Sen. John McCain stunned the country by selecting her as his running mate: Everyone has an opinion on whatever she does, and she can get clicks and coverage like no one else.
The prevailing theory now is that since Palin no longer has a megaphone like Fox News through which she can blast her opinions, her moment is now officially over.
The 'Ends' of Sarah Palin
It might be true, but there have been so many "ends of Sarah Palin" that it's almost too hard to keep track of them all. She was over when she lost the 2008 campaign, she was over when she quit the Alaska governorship, she was over when she decided to do a reality show, she was over when she decided not to run for president, and now again, she's over because her appearances on Fox News are over.


I, for one, did think Palin would lose her relevancy when she quit the Alaska governorship, and also when she didn't run for president. But in both cases, people who both love her and hate her just couldn't get enough information about her, and she still got an incredible amount of news coverage. Her voice was heard loud and clear, even if it blasted only from her Facebook posts. That's just another example of what she's been able to pull off that others who've come before or after just haven't. Palin's been written off from Day One, but like a boomerang, she just keeps coming back.
Yes, she wasn't really helpful to Mitt Romney's campaign, but she also never really explicitly backed him. And what an odd pair they would have made if she had. In her interview last weekend with Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News who made "The Undefeated," the positive 2011 movie about her, she said, "The problem is that some on the right are now skittish because of the lost 2012 election. They shouldn't be. Conservatism didn't lose. A moderate Republican candidate lost after he was perceived to alienate working-class Reagan Democrats and independent voters." Not a sign that she wants to rethink some of her policy points, or that she will retreat into the shadows.

Another Possible TV Home
I think more likely than her fading away (we all still cover every eyebrow-raising Facebook post of hers) is that she will possibly find an on-air home elsewhere, at somewhere like CNN. She told Breitbart.com that she "encourages others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I'm taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience."
Later in the interview, she added, "I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I'm willing to do that. So, we shall see."

The American Thinker "Palin; Take Your 3.4 Million Followers And Preach To the Choir"

Here's:Ann Kane  Read the rest at the link

Palin Should 'Preach to the Choir'


at THE AMERICAN THINKER


"In Sarah Palin's interview with Stephen Bannon, the documentarian who chronicled her life in The Undefeated, she speaks forthrightly about her future plans now that she's no longer tethered to a progressively moderate Fox News. But the meaning behind her words isn't so clear.
Short term: I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I'm taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience.
What does "broadening our audience" mean? If it means taking a message of conservatism, limited government, adherence to the Constitution and a free market, to the streets and preaching to anyone who will listen, then I'm all for it.
On the other hand, if Palin means she should "share" her message with moderate Democrats or independents, she should remember that train left the station when establishment Republicans lost to Obama in November. Throughout the 2012 campaign season, the Republican theme was bipartisanship and compromise. Where did that get us?
We do not live in normal times. We have a diehard socialist president who constantly insinuates his personal progressive opinions into the American narrative. If moderate Republicans, nay progressive Republicans, continue to rule over conservatives, we won't stand a chance against those that wish to bring our Republic to its knees.
And how has it helped that conservative media personalities accept jobs on "lamestream" media outlets? Do they really think they are going to change CNN's or MSNBC's progressive editorial policies by being a voice from the right? Not a chance. Mixing with the left is futile, and sometimes dangerous.
Just think of the late Andrew Breitbart. He went out on a limb and endured vitriolic hatred when he faced the public, but he didn't compromise his beliefs. "Bring it on, you freaks" was one of his famous lines and it symbolizes his single-minded mission to call out the left every time they made a move. His conversion from a liberal Hollywood type to a conservative dragon was complete. He was all about the cause. He threw out his liberal lexicon and replaced it with straight talk, shooting from the hip.
Here's a suggestion for Sarah Palin. Take your 3.4 million Facebook followers and name them as your base. Lead them. And preach like you've never preached before."

Alaska Dispatch; "SarahPAC has more than $1 million"

SarahPAC has more than $1 million



Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who lost a Republican bid for the White House in 2008 alongside running mate John McCain, still has political muscle, at least in the way of cash to spend. Her political action committee, SarahPAC, closed out 2012 with nearly $1.2 million in the bank, according to the Associated Press.

It's a chunk of change that will certainly help her continue her fight for what she calls “American Exceptionalism,” and for “limited constitutional government.” Although she has parted ways as a commentator for Fox News – a $1 million a year gig that paid her an average of nearly $16 per uttered word, according to the Atlantic Wire – Palin has pledged to keep alive her vigil against biased media, and to keep advocating for liberty, true hope and freedom.

“I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us,” Palin said this weekend in an interview with Breitbart News.

The former Alaska politician still has nearly 3.5 million followers on Facebook. where she regularly disseminates political and social missives.

Palin's Future; Prophet, Politician, Pundit, President Or Parent?

Now that Sarah Palin has severed formal ties with the Fox Network as a paid contributor, and is thus freed from the encumbrance of having only one media outlet for her views, her future is one of many possibilities.

Palin has commenced down a path which has led her, right from the start, to not just one fork in the road, but six. Her path options include prophet, pundit, politician, president and parent-and of course any combination of these options. Here is a look at the various choices for Palin in detail:

PROPHET; Palin's recent, and forthcoming statements and activities, would appear to make this path a strong option for her. Palin's faith and commitment to her right to life beliefs (which are one and the same) are a strong and abiding aspect of her persona-if not her very soul. Palin has addressed, to a rapturous response, a number of religious gatherings over the years, especially women's faith based conventions.

Her most recent Facebook statements have included a number of faith and Downs Syndrome commentaries, and her next speaking engagement is in conjunction with the Catholic Church's Terry Schiavo Memorial Mass

Thus this option would seem an attractive one for Palin, as it is clearly close to her heart, and would be personally fulfilling, and it could be could combined with her family commitments as her time on the road would be limited.

POLITICIAN:  This option is clearly on the table with Palin's post Fox comment that "2014" By this she appears to be signalling a commitment to endorsing  and campaigning for those candidates she believes best reflect the "common sense conservatism"  she embodies. 

It is indisputable that her activities along those lines in 2010 were a major factor in advancing the selection, and election, of a significant number of Palin endorsed genuine conservative candidates. 

Palin said years ago " I don't need a title to make a difference" and thus the simple title "politician" may suit her best and, again, this role would give her substantial time with her family.
Alternatively, Palin may choose an active political role and run for the senate as an Alaskan seat is up for grabs in 2014.

PUNDIT:   Palin may have closed the Fox door as a paid consultant, but of course that doesn't mean that she can't be on Fox, or any network, as a contributor from time to time as a pundit. The likes of CNN's Piers Morgan have said that Palin would be one of his top "gets" and no doubt other hosts-from left to right-would be delighted to have her as a guest. Rachel Maddow, (who invited her) and Jon Stewart, immediately come to mind. 

It may  be that by leaving Fox Palin will, in fact, have more exposure, across a broader spectrum of the viewing public, than ever before.

PRESIDENT;  Palin has clearly not shut the door on a future presidential run. She advised, somewhat cryptically, some time ago that this was a possibility. In her first interview post Fox with Breitbart, she again clearly left the door to a 2016 run open and advised that all options were on the table. 

Given the huge financial resources required for such a run Palin might need to commit early, perhaps shortly after the 2014 mid-terms, to give her myriad of small donation capacity supporters time to raise the necessary funding.

If this is her ultimate path, then between now and the mid-terms the Prophet and/or the Pundit ( and Family of course) would seem as possibly her best near future options, as they would assist in keeping her in the public's view.

PARENT:  Palin may decide that her commitment to her still young family, especially Trigg, is the major aspect of her life in the near future, and after her attention to the 2014 mid-terms she may spend most of her time parenting, with an occasional foray into speech making.

Palin is still relatively young and can consider an active political life once her family are older and, in the main, off her hands.

Whichever one of these paths, or, more likely, combination of them, Palin chooses one thing is certain, they will bring color, excitement, commitment, challenges and of course both love and hate. 

How else could it be with the phenomenon that is Sarah Palin? Whatever her future holds friends-her millions of supporters, and foes in the media and amongst the fanatical 'haters" alike will be watching her future with interest and wonder.


Video;NBC Morning Show; Time Magazine's Halperin "Palin Has So Much Star Power"


Halperin: Sarah Palin ‘has so much star power...’

In a Today Show segment which contemplates what Governor Palin will do next, TIME Magazine Senior Political AnalystMark Halperin comments that the Republican Party's first female vice presidential candidate still has star power:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking newsworld news, and news about the economy
Halperin's observation, and indeed the mere fact that the NBC morning show's producers felt the need to cover her departure from Fox News and speculate on her future flies in the face of her critics in both political parties who claim that she is no longer "relevant." They've been making that claim since November of 2008, but they still can't stop talking about her.h/t: Tony Lee

Focus on the 2014 election is also imperative.
The lady is among the more charismatic figures of our day. What one hopes to see is serious direction and substantial reform, i.e. that which the GOP is not delivering.
I don’t doubt the lady can do it. The question is the degree to which the GOP elite is willing to go ‘scorched earth’ rather than permit her to succeed. After all, it’s not “her turn”.

Sarah Palin To Speak at Southeastern National Leadership Forum-Background And Full Details


From:The Ledger (AT THIS LINK)

Sarah Palin to Speak at Southeastern Forum

The seventh annual leadership forum will be held March 7 and 8.


Is it true that former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin — the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president — is slated to speak at Southeastern University next year? You betcha.

LAKELAND | Is it true that former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin — the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president — is slated to speak at Southeastern University next year?
You betcha.
The university's 2013 National Leadership Forum has announced that Palin, 48, will speak at the seventh annual forum, scheduled for March 7 and 8 at the university's Lakeland campus. Past forum speakers have included Colin Powell, Jeb Bush, President George Bush and Condoleezza Rice.
The forum is geared toward leaders in the business, professional and church communities.
Brian C. Carroll, vice president for university advancement, said the event was created from a desire to teach students and the community about the ideals of servant leadership. "We wanted to create an event that embodies those values," he said.
Lakeland businessman Bill Mutz, a former auto dealer who has been involved with forum sponsorship, said the upcoming speaker lineup is exciting.
"I think the forum has continued to bring some outstanding speakers to the area who offer a little outside-of-the-box leadership thinking that has been very valuable, not only to individuals, but to organizations that send people to the event."
Having Palin speak was not a decision made with a political agenda, Carroll said. "This is not a political forum, by any stretch of the imagination," he said. "Sarah Palin is going to be talking about overcoming obstacles in leadership, and she's overcome a lot of obstacles."

Newly Liberated Palin's Opening Salvo At Breitbart: "Focus On 2014;As Far As Long-term Plans,The Door Is Wide Open"

Here is the opening salvo from the newly liberated Sarah Palin post Fox. You can read the entire post
 AT THIS LINK


 26 Jan 2013

In my research for the film I made on Governor Palin, The Undefeated, I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really important, what really matters, is what sets her apart.

Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He lives on in spirit and through the work of those he inspired—including, but not limited to, those who report and contribute at his site.
The Governor has been at the forefront of the fight against the Permanent Political Classand, as such, inspired Peter Schweizer and myself in our work last night on Fox News with Sean Hannity’s special “Boomtown.” We consider ourselves honored at Breitbart News to have her share with us her thoughts on the road ahead in this exclusive Q & A.
1. What's next for you?
Short term: I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience. 
Focus on the 2014 election is also imperative. It’s going to be like 2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in DC. DC is out of touch, obviously. Voices on the right like Mark Levin, Rush, and the writers here at Breitbart have come out strongly against the “go along to get along” politicians who wave the white flag before the battle even begins. We’re not going to be able to advance the cause of limited constitutional government unless we deal with these big government enablers on our side. And this all ties into the problem of crony capitalism and the permanent political class in the Beltway. We need to consistently take them on election after election – ever vigilant.
As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open. I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I’m willing to do that. So, we shall see. And always in the center of it all I have an awesome, full, exciting, and large family living in a very unique part of America that keeps me hopping! I love it!

Is Sarah Palin Building A Catholic Support Base For a 2016 Run? McCain Suggest A Pro-Life Catholic Could Have Won In 2012

Update; "The Catholic Bandita"  AT THIS LINK headlines "best wishes to Sarah Palin as she leaves Fox news". An interesting take as full support to Sarah is given as a person but not politically because of her endorsement of Rand Paul in his senate race. I would be confident the political support would return if Sarah ran though.
***************************************************************
Original post;

If Sarah Palin's latest Tweets and the announcement of her next speaking engagement are examined it is very clear that the religious aspect of her focus has, at least for the time being, superseded the overtly political.

As can also be determined Palin has made an emphasis on her right to life beliefs with her speaking engagement following the Catholic Archbishop Chaput's memorial Mass in honor of the late Terry Schiavo in Philadelphia. 

Her right to life beliefs are of course exemplified on her carry her Down Syndrome child Trig to birth and her celebration of basketball achiever Down Syndrome Owen Groesser in a Tweet.

None of this can be evinced as a political outreach to the Catholic community and church hierarchy, on the other hand these obviously sincerely held beliefs and actions would do her no harm with them too. The highly respected journalist R.S. McCain. commenting (below) on the result of the 2012 election, made the point that an "adamantly pro-life Catholic would have done better".

If McCain is correct, and I agree with his views, then a Catholic on the ticket in 2016 might well be a major plus for the GOP.I have suggested that a Palin/Jindal ticket might be a very strong one for a multiplicity of reasons. 

Palin, Palin was born and baptized as a Roman Catholic but raised as a Pentecostal Christian. Palin's family were Roman Catholics but later joined the Wasilla Assembly of God, and whose pro-life credentials are not only impeccable, but are in fact transcendent, could attract the Catholic vote whilst, as a Protestant, retain the conservative evangelical vote, which Romney may have lost because of his Mormonism. 

If Palin is to make a run in 2016 her Catholic outreach and right to life credentials may tip the balance in her favor.



Sarah Palin
What are we succumbing to, America? The army orders "the removal of Christian symbols from a chapel." I wonder...

  1. Forty years ago today the Supreme Court rendered its Roe v. Wade decision. Those who believe in the sanctity of... 


Three cheers for Owen Groesser, an eighth grader with Down Syndrome who became an overnight social media star...



R.S. McCain (At "The Other McCain") gets it 100% right:

Look at the exit polls: In Ohio, Romney got only 81% of the conservative vote, while Obama got 88% of the liberal vote. Thirty-five percent of Ohio voters called themselves conservative, as compared to 22% who identified as liberal. If Romney had gotten a larger share of the conservative vote, he would have won Ohio. Now, here are the truly frightening numbers: Obama got 44% of the Catholic vote in Ohio, and 29% of the evangelical (or “born again”) Protestant vote.
Is Jonah Goldberg willing to admit what seems obvious to me, namely that nominating a moderate Mormon contributed to the weakening of GOP support among conservative Christians? Isn’t it possible that an adamantly pro-life Catholic would have done better?



 Archbishop Chaput to Celebrate National Mass for Eighth Anniversary of Terri Schiavo's Death

Governor Sarah Palin scheduled to speak at Award Gala following Terri's Memorial Mass

Contact: Mary Foley, Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, 484-278-4287, mfoley@lifeandhope.com

"Not Bothered What Palin Does As Long As She Makes Lefty Heads Explode" Smitty At The Other McCain Gets It

Here is the unique "Smitty" right hand man at R.S. McCain's The Other McCain. "Smitty" AT THIS LINK is happy to see Palin do anything she wants subsequent to her Fox gig as long as the lives rent free in lefties heads (which she does of course as the Palin Deranged who have been frothing at the mouth today shows).

Good comments at the link as well.



What Difference Does Sarah Palin Make?

It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”
The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.
Found curled up weeping in a corner with his thumb in his mouth, Anderson Cooper could only sob “Nooooo” at the thought. Over at MSNBC, Piers Morgan was channeling Vincent again:
Vincent: Oh no. The problem. The problem, Pansy! It’s started again!
Pansy: Oh! Oh, don’t worry, darling!
Vincent: Ohhh… ohhh…
Pansy: I say!
Vincent: I must have fruit!
What will Sarah do? I’m really not bothered in any case, so long as the Lefty heads keep ‘sploding.
