    In early July, while most Americans were preparing for a long weekend of celebratory parades, charred meats, and noisy fireworks, Sarah Palin made some plans of her own. The Alaska governor had been the object of endless media attention and assorted calumnies since she became John McCain's vice presidential nominee last August. Now she wanted to try something new. So, on July 3, in a speech delivered from her home on Lake Lucille in Wasilla, Palin told her constituents that not only would she not seek a second term, but she would also be transferring authority to Lieutenant Governor Sean...

If I may, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the last 24 hours and share my thoughts with you. First, I want to thank you for your support and hard work on the values we share. Those values led me to the decision my family and I made. Yesterday, my family and I announced a decision that is in Alaska’s best interest and it...

    Sarah Palin's resignation as Governor of Alaska is a brilliant liberating move for her career, and a potential turning point for the national conservative movement. The biggest problem with her responsibility as Governor of Alaska is that the state is so far away from the rest of America. No one hears of the good work she has been doing there, and the left is free to paint their own false caricature of her. ... I am hoping she spends two weeks of every month now touring the states doing fundraisers for a the sweeping Republican revival in 2010 that is...

Sarah told it like it was when Lauer pressed her. Matt tried to excuse Letterman and Sarah said "he was naive" and then he really got interesting! Matt finally had to give in (even thou he tried to defend Letterman). Was great! REALLY WORTH LISTENING TO!

The museum itself remembers and honors the lives lost in one of the world's most horrific genocides. To have an act of intolerance further spread hatred at this place of reflection, further adds to the grief. My heart goes out to all those impacted, especially the brave guards who acted so selflessly to prevent further injury. May God Bless the Jewish community." Governor Sarah Palin

    This much is clear: Palin was invited to be the keynote speaker at the dinner. What happened next, however, is a matter of hot dispute. Party officials say she accepted and reneged. Palin loyalists say she was merely mulling the offer. Either way, the party moved on and invited Gingrich to be the substitute keynoter. In recent days, Palin was reinvited to the event, but that invitation was rescinded over concerns that the darling of the conservative base would steal the spotlight from Gingrich. Palin, reportedly angered that the party establishment was slighting her again, let it be known that...

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential nominee has quietly been cleared of every ethics complaint filed since the torrent of allegations began in 2008. Mrs. Palin, who became a target of such complaints after being named Sen. John McCain's running mate, is 14-for-14 in fighting off the complaints. She's been cleared of 13 charges by the independent State Personnel Board and of another complaint by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

DOE is now inviting states to comment on a draft document that they developed for measuring and demonstrating compliance with those strings attached to universal building code provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

    Alaska legislators are discussing an attempt to override Gov. Sarah Palin's budget vetoes, which included a controversial rejection of $28.6 million in energy money. That's a difficult challenge requiring a 75 percent majority vote in both houses of the Legislature; such votes are rarely held. Palin maintained that accepting the federal energy stimulus money for Alaska would require pushing to adopt a statewide building code; legislative leaders said it did no such thing. In reality, many municipal governments already meet the building code requirements, and it's likely the state already fulfills or is on its way to fulfilling the requirements,...

    In response to your May 27 editorial, let me explain why I vetoed $28.6 million of federal stimulus funds tied to adoption of universal energy building codes. The feds required me to certify these codes "will be implemented" or pushed on local communities. My record is clear. I support conserving energy through weatherization and I'm an advocate for harnessing renewable sources of energy. But conditions here required more "big brother" government involvement than most Alaskans want and the new codes could cost Alaskans thousands of dollars per new home and renovation.

"We've spent pretty close to about a third of a million dollars, and it's getting to be really expensive," said Al Tamagni, a member of the board. Also Wednesday, the three-member board dismissed another complaint, this one involving Palin and...

    During the 3PM hour on MSNBC, anchor Norah O’Donnell derided Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for attending the annual Alfalfa dinner in Washington, D.C., declaring: "Sarah Palin is coming to D.C. she ran as a maverick this whole campaign, wanted nothing to do with people in Washington, the anti-establishment candidate, and now she's coming to the most exclusive dinner in Washington, to hobnob with perhaps the president, ambassadors, senators, all the people she derided during the campaign. What's up with that?"

    West Hollywood, California (Thursday, January 29, 2009) - In the latest twist of effigy events (will they ever end?), Hunter Bush and Joe Fischer, a pair of college students who hung an effigy of then-candidate Barack Obama on the University of Kentucky campus in direct response to the West Hollywood Halloween Sarah Palin effigy, escaped charges this week. A grand jury dismissed charges of second-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking and disorderly conduct against Mr. Bush, age 21, and Mr. Fischer, age 22, for their role in hanging an effigy dressed in a black sports jacket, khaki pants and Barack...

    We can hardly believe it, but this strange fascination with all things Sarah Palin still hasn't run its course. Case in point, someone claiming to be Palin's niece just sold a pair of the governor's Naughty Monkey pumps -- that she reportedly bought with her own money (not like all that fancy designer stuff the RNC picked up) -- on eBay for a whopping $2,025. Regularly priced, these heels retail for about $90 -- but put the foot of a thwarted VP candidate in them, and the price skyrockets . Find Your Own Naughty Monkey Pumps -- At Regular Price...

    In October, while Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska was campaigning to be vice president, the federal government added the beluga whales in the state’s Cook Inlet to the endangered species list. At the time, Governor Palin opposed the listing, saying it would be “premature.” (She said the same thing about protecting polar bears.) Now Ms. Palin has announced that she will sue to remove the whales from the protection of the Endangered Species Act. *** In explaining her intent to file suit, the governor has challenged virtually every aspect of the listing decision — including the scientific finding that these...

    The Palin Derangement Syndrome (PDS) on the radical left is getting worse. A blogger on the site is now attacking Gov. Palin for wearing glasses. She didn’t quite call her “four eyes,” but used the slightly more snarky “spectacled one” to describe the former vice presidential nominee and governor of America’s 50th state. Those Leftist writers are so sophisticated. What are they going to do next? Trip retarded kids who are crossing the street? The blog posting breathlessly stated, “Sarah Palin will never be relegated to memory - probably because she never goes away. The spectacled one is back...

    Arsonist intended murder at Palin's church? Report: Alarm, phone wires cut, fire set at entrance © 2009 WorldNetDaily A leader at Wasilla Bible Church in Alaska suspects the arsonist who started fires that left $1 million in damages intended murder and possibly targeted the church because of the attendance of Gov. Sarah Palin, whose Christian faith became an issue during her 2008 campaign with Sen. John McCain. "Clearly this was an attack caused by Governor Palin's connection to this little Christian church," writes blogger Kevin Collins in his Collins Report. Collins said a church elder, Tom Ryan, confirmed the case...

    In what could be a preview of the 2012 presidential race, Sarah Palin and Barack Obama will share a stage together this Saturday night in Washington, D.C., Politico has learned. The Alaska governor and former GOP vice presidential nominee, making her first trip to the nation’s capital since the election, will join the President at the Alfalfa Dinner, a venerable gathering of the city’s political elite. Palin and Obama will both address the black tie crowd at the Capital Hilton, aides to each say.
  • Palin Pleased with Payments to Veterans

    January 28, 2009, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin applauded Secretary of the Army Pete Geren’s decision to continue retirement payments to the Alaska Territorial Guard members on a temporary basis. A congressional fix will be needed to fully reinstate the retirement money rightfully earned by these veterans. The Alaska Territorial Guard members are primarily Alaska Natives living in rural areas. “Rural Alaskans face the highest food and energy costs in the nation, and these veterans need their retirement checks now more than ever,” Governor Palin said. “Using the emergency fund to provide monetary protection for these 26 veterans is...

    The surest sign yet that Alaska's Republican Gov. Sarah Palin intends at least to be in position for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination contest. Like others presumed to have their eye on the party nod -- former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Arkansas ex-Gov. Mike Huckabee -- she has set up a PAC -- SarahPAC. The creation of such a financial entity commits her to nothing. But such a political action committee will allow Palin to position herself to compete by legally collecting donations to travel and speak on her own behalf (Iowa is a long snow machine ride from...

    An exclusive interview with a church Elder has provided The Collins Report with sobering new facts about the arson fire at Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s home church, the Wasilla Bible Church (WBC). WBC Elder Tom Ryan revealed never before reported facts about this vicious crime. FACT: The crime was a six count attempted Murder 1, not a simple arson of a coincidently occupied building. There were 5 adult women and a 17 year old girl in the church during the arson. The old media never reported this crime as attempted murders. Instead they have smothered the truth of this story....

    Excerpts from a letter to the editor of the Frontiersman, Sarah Palin's hometown newspaper: On Jan 5, I was listening to the radio... the Dan Fagan minute came on. He said he had looked up Sarah Palin’s grandson’s name (Tripp) in an Urban Dictionary and that it meant "to have sex while on drugs or drunk..." Now, even an innocent newborn isn’t spared from this guy’s venom. Not surprising, this is the same guy, along with his sidekick, Sanquanita, who made fun of a special-needs child at the state fair two summers ago. They laughed... The Anchorage Daily News and...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is going on the offensive against news organizations and bloggers she says are perpetuating malicious gossip about her and her children. But political observers say the former Republican vice presidential candidate can't have it both ways: trotting out the children to showcase her family values, then trying to shield them from scrutiny. Palin's criticism also raises questions about her motivations because she has said she is open to a presidential run in 2012. "I think she's positioning herself. She's attacking the media as a way to generate support among a base she hopes...
