  • Sarah Palin funds John Boehner Republican opponents

    Houston Politics Examiner ^ | July 28, 2015 | Mark R. Whittington
    The Conservatives4Palin blog noted on Sunday that former Alaska governor and presidential candidate Sarah Palin has arranged for SarahPac to provide funding to the reelection campaigns of Republican House members who opposed re-electing John Boehner as House Speaker. As the New York Times reported at the time, Boehner suffered the embarrassment of having 25 members of his caucus vote to deny him a new term as speaker. The Republican majority in the House was large enough to have Boehner reelected by a comfortable margin in any case
  • Dear Daily Caller Boys….[or too many, to little, or that's just right SarahPac]

    Dear Gentlemen of the Daily Caller, On October 10, 2014, Alex Pappas, posted an article stating that, "Palin Donates Only 5 Percent Of PAC Contributions To Candidates." On August 2, 2013, Ben Jacobs posted an article stating that, "Palin’s political action committee spends more than it makes." Notwithstanding the Goldilocks Principle you’ve applied to SarahPAC, I noticed that at the end of Mr. Pappas’ article he stated that " The Daily Caller attempted to reach SarahPAC’s treasurer," and I assume they did not hear back from Mr. Crawford. Since the Daily Caller makes it a hobby of checking the books...

    Sarah Palin‘s PAC is extremely stingy when it comes to donating money to her fellow Republicans: a report from Open Secrets reveals that since the 2014 two-year election cycle began, her PAC has raised a total of $2.7 million dollars, but only donated $150,000 of that money to actual candidates, a donation rate of 5.5%.This year was even worse: according to SarahPAC’s third quarter filings this year, they had $1.4 million cash in hand, but only donated $45,000 to nine Congressional candidates — about 3% — between July 1st and September 30th. What did they spend the rest on? Many of the...

    Prominent among the clueless douchebags who thought Rudy Giuliani could be elected president, John Avlon by 2009 was faced with a problem: How could a pro-Obama liberal Republican hireling find work in a political environment where the Tea Party uprising demonstrated that the Charlie Crist collaborationist Vichy wing of the GOP had no natural grassroots constituency? So in 2010, Avlon co-founded the “No Labels” movement, funded by liberal donors and assigned the mission of helping Democrats destroy the Tea Party. And if Avlon’s constant smearing of conservatives as “winguts” damaged the Republican Party, so what? Nobody involved in “No Labels”...

    The Seattle Times ^ | October 23, 2012 | Emily Heffter
    Republican John Koster, a candidate for Congress in the 1st District, received a $5,000 contribution from SarahPAC, the political organization headed by Sarah Palin. Koster is in a tight race with Democrat Suzan DelBene to represent the 1st District, a newly drawn swing district that runs from Redmond to the Canadian border. Palin endorsed Koster in 2010, when he ran against Democrat Rick Larsen. Koster’s far-right tea party ties have been a major talking point for the DelBene campaign, which has branded Koster “too extreme” for the 1st District. Koster’s campaign says DelBene is too liberal...

Sarah PAC has just over $1.4 million in in the bank at the end of June after having spent about $1.6 million — about as much as it raised — between January and June. The first six months of this year saw a revamped political operation for Palin, who relaunched Sarah PAC's website this spring and embarked on a national bus tour sponsored by the PAC.

This is evidence of weakness as a candidate. Let's examine the rest of this field, using 2006 as the barometer....

    Looks good, and it’s clearly intended to make a statement coming so soon after her gangbusters Wisconsin speech. I’m especially intrigued by the “Request an Event” feature; neither Huckabee’s nor Romney’s website has a section like that. Politico speculates that it’s her way of better organizing her speaking invitations, but major institutions aren’t going to reach out via a web interface. I think it’s there to emphasize her connection to her grassroots supporters, suggesting that she’ll consider any request from someone who’s interested in hosting her, not just the big players who can contact her team through back channels.

    At FrumForum, Tim Mak notes that despite the fuss about the $865,000 Sarah Palin raised for her PAC last quarter, she was out-raised by both Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann, a simple congresswoman who is not actually running for the 2012 nomination. (As far as anyone knows.) Minnesota's favorite baby-farmer Bachmann raised $1.7 million last quarter, despite the fact that, unlike Palin and Romney, she ostensibly has a job. Does this make Bachmann a dark-horse candidate for the GOP nomination? She shares much of Sarah Palin's political skill and ambition, plus the ability to speak extemporaneously.

The PAC just had its best fundraising quarter ever, raking in $866,000. It turned around and spent $742,000 of that investing in its infrastructure, building its lists and fundraising capabilities, and launching its first direct mail campaign. Most of the money came from small donors. Alleged 2012 hopefuls Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee all have PACs as well. But until now, Palin has eschewed traditional political expenditures, relying on Facebook, Twitter,...

    Sarah Palin's "Mama Grizzlies" video is instructive inasmuch as it reveals a great deal about Sarah and the sort of campaign that she would run should she choose to throw her hat into the ring for 2012. First, the video makes it clear, as have the string of victories achieved by candidates that Palin has endorsed across the nation, that the former governor is a highly skilled politician. Given that she comes from a modest background and is pretty much entirely self-made, we can infer that her political skills come naturally to her and are not the consequence of, say,...

    A new financial report filed Sunday evening showed Sarah Palin’s political action committee has taken its fundraising to a higher level – and suggests that she has begun building a more sophisticated political operation in place of a bare-bones organization powered mostly by her rock star status and scrappy on-line presence. The report, filed with the Federal Election Commission, shows that Palin’s political action committee raised more money in the second quarter of this year – $866,000 – than it had in any previous three-month stretch since Palin formed the group in January 2009. The committee, Sarah PAC, also spent...

The settlement, between Palin and the Alaska Personnel Board, was announced this afternoon. An investigator for the board, Timothy Petumenos, said today that the fund was illegal because it inappropriately used the word "official" on its website, wrongly implying Palin's endorsement as governor. Palin's attorney says she will return the funds. Petumenos found the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee acted in good faith and relied on the advice of lawyers when setting up...

    The Alinsky Left is predictably manufacturing scandals, this time over SarahPAC’s routine filing of receipts and disbursements at the closing of this years’ first quarter. “SarahPAC Ensures That Sarah Palin Travels in Style” an ABC News headline blares. It’s not until you read the actual story and get to the second page that the reporter, Matthew Mosk acknowledges that this practice is standard for all poltical action committees, and that the late Ted Kennedy had significant travel expenses....

    Despite all the fundraising Governor Palin has done for conservative candidates and causes, there are still those on our own side pushing the meme that while she's dead right on all the issues, she's somehow not ready yet to run for president; that she's not doing enough or saying enough to be a considered a presidential candidate. One prominent Republican strategist recently claimed she hasn't yet "transitioned herself into a presidential candidate". What the hell does that mean? What does she need to do to make that transition? She's the only one out there taking the fight to Obama. If...

    John Spratt is in Sarah Palin's cross-hairs. The S.C. Democrat is one of 20 congressmen -- and the only one from the Carolinas -- whose seats Palin's SarahPAC is targeting after Sunday's health care vote. Spratt, of York, has survived 14 terms in a district that's consistently gone Republican in presidential races. Two years ago he got 62 percent of the vote while John McCain was getting 53 percent. "We’re paying particular attention to those House members who voted in favor of Obamacare and represent districts that Senator John McCain and I carried during the 2008 election," Palin wrote on...
  • SarahPAC Fulfilling Its Mission

    Governor Palin’s enemies take Baskin Robbins approach to the drivel they spew on her with “flavor of the day” manufactured scandals. Today’s flavor is that SarahPAC – drum roll please – bought copies of Going Rogue – to fulfill a promotion in which donors at the $100 level or greater got a signed copy of the book. This “scandal” is laughable.

    In my view, his presence on these shows alone should disqualify him, but Sarah Palin thinks he’s just wonderful because Sarah Palin doesn’t think. She’s a dummy, and it’s time her blind worshipers woke up to that, but they refuse to awaken from their slumber. Does it not bother her that, as the Sultan points out, Rand Paul compared the U.S. military to Hitler? Hellooooo . . . ? Either Sarah Palin supports Rand Paul’s nutty views against torturing terrorists and siding with Iran against America or she’s just ignorant and uninformed beyond belief. I vote for both, which is...

    Sarah PAC, the political action committee of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, collected $1.4 million over the final six months of 2009, a solid -- if not spectacular -- total that demonstrates her fundraising capacity as she mulls a bid for national office in 2012. "We are thrilled," said Palin senior adviser Meg Stapleton about the fundraising total. "Common sense Americans know the direction we need to take this country and that Sarah Palin will be instrumental in taking us there this year." For the year, Palin raised roughly $2.1 million through Sarah PAC and ended the year with $900,000...

    Loved this... "While some conservatives are sure to be disappointed by the donations to two pols they consider to be Vichy Republicans, the relative few who will be genuinely outraged probably weren't that firmly entrenched in the Palin camp to begin with. On the other side of the coin, the donations will quite likely sit well with moderates and independents, two demographic groups which Sarah Palin knows she must improve her standing with in order to win a general election." So if you are against helping RINO's get reelected, you "probably weren't that firmly entrenched in the Palin camp to...

    Recently Jim Robinson posted two threads declaring Free Republic’s determination to see Conservatives elected and ousting Rino's from government. Jim and a great many Freepers believe that we need to take back control. But the RNC is not hearing us. Activism is called for NOW. 2010 is nearing and we need Conservative candidates to run. The time is ripe and people are ready for another 1994 type election. But we need to make the RNC hear us loud and clear. This is the Rino Free America Project. Get involved. Make them listen. Write a letter and MAIL it. Republican...
