Sarah Palin just slapped down FOX News crank Bob Beckel.
This was great.
Bob Beckel: Governor, that deception, does that go for the death panels that were never real, that you said were in there?
Meet Maine ‘s New Governor — In case you haven’t heard about this guy before, his name will stick in your mind!
The new Maine Governor, Paul LePage is making New Jersey ‘s Chris Christie look like an enabler. He isn’t afraid to say what he thinks.Judging by the comments, every time he opens his mouth, his popularity goes up.
He brought down the house at his inauguration when he shook his fist toward the media box and said, “You’re on notice! I’ve inherited a financially troubled State to run. Observe…cover what we do…but don’t whine if I don’t waste time responding to your every whim just for your amusement.”
During his campaign for Governor, he was talking to commercial fishermen who are struggling because of federal fisheries rules. They complained that 0bama brought his family to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park for a long Labor Day holiday and found time to meet with union leaders, but wouldn’t talk to the fishermen. LePage replied, “I’d tell him to go to hell and get out of my State.” The Lame Stream Media crucified LePage, but he jumped 6 points in the pre-election poll.
The Martin Luther King incident was a political sandbag, which brought him National exposure. The ‘lame stream’ media crucified him, but word on the street is very positive. The NAACP specifically asked LePage to spend MLK Day visiting black inmates at the Maine State Prison. He told them that he would meet with ALL inmates, regardless of race, if he were to visit the prison. The NAACP balked and then put out a news release claiming falsely that he refused to participate in any MLK events. He read it in the paper for the 1st time the next morning while being driven to an event and went ballistic because none of the reporters had called him for comment before running the NAACP release.
He arrived at that event & said in front of a TV camera, “If they want to play the race card on me they can kiss my ass”, and he reminded them that he has an adopted black son from Jamaica and that he attended the local MLK Breakfast every year that he was mayor of Waterville. (He started his morning there on MLK Day..)
He then stated that there’s a right way and a wrong way to meet with the Governor, and he put all special interests on notice that press releases, media leaks, and all demonstrations would prove to be the wrong way. He said any other group, which acted like the NAACP could expect to be at the bottom of the Governor’s priority list!
He then did the following, and judging from local radio talk show callers, his popularity increased even more: The State employees union complained because he waited until 3 P.M. before closing State offices and facilities and sending non-emergency personnel home during the last blizzard. The prior Governor would often close offices for the day with just a forecast before the first flakes. (Each time the State closes for snow, it costs the taxpayers about $1 million in wages for no work in return.)
LePage was CEO of the Marden’s chain of discount family bargain retail stores before election as governor. He noted that State employees getting off work early could still find lots of retail stores open to shop. So, he put the State employees on notice by announcing: “If Marden’s is open, Maine is open!”
He told State employees: “We live in Maine in the winter, for heaven’s sake, and should know how to drive in it. Otherwise, apply for a State job in Florida !”
Governor LePage symbolizes what America needs; Refreshing politicians who aren’t self-serving and who exhibit common sense.
THE LAW IS THE LAW!
I really love this one.
This is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!! HERE IS WHAT Governor LaPage said,
“THE LAW IS THE LAW So “if” the US government determines that it is against the law for the words “under God” to be on our money, then, so be it.
And “if” that same government decides that the “Ten Commandments” are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.
I say, “so be it,” because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.
I say, “so be it,” because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.
I would like to think that those people have the American public’s best interests at heart.
BUT, he said, “YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I’D LIKE?
Since we can’t pray to God, can’t Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don’t believe Government (Federal, State and Local) and its employees should participate in Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.
I’d like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it’s just another day.
I’d like the” US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays.” After all, it’s just another day.
I’d like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the “Christmas Break.” After all it’s just another day.
I’m thinking a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn’t cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be “politically correct.”
In fact….I think our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshiping God….) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day….”
What do you all think???? If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the “minority opinions” and begin, once again, to represent the “majority” of ALL of the American people.
SO BE IT……….Please Dear Lord, Give us the help needed to keep you in our country! ‘Amen’ and ‘Amen’ Touché!
These are definitely things I never thought about but from now on, I will be sure to question those in government who support these changes.
If this gets around the country a few times, perhaps we will see a better day!
I noticed that he misspelled mourn.

Black Caucus Radicals Will Stage a Walkout During Holder Contempt Vote
It’s racist??????????????????????????????? You got to be kidding me! I think what “Whites” need to do every time an alleged or proven crime that’s brought against them they should ASAP cry that, “IT’S RACIST”…….Papa Mike
The Black Caucus will stage a walkout protest tomorrow during the contempt vote on Eric Holder.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo. will lead a walkout protest tomorrow.
Let’s face it. They don’t give a damn about who killed border agent Brian Terry.
The Hill reported:
Let us all PRAY this is NOT true! ……….This is also the most frightening thing you will ever watch.
I had read these statistics recently and it is REALLY scary… If it weren’t for the Mexican immigrants… we would not be able to sustain our culture… They are Christians…
Muslims are taking over everywhere…they are very close to taking over Europe… it is pretty scary to say the least… and that they want us dead is even scarier!!!
We need to have lots more babies!!!!! Lots more…
When you’ve read to the end, come back and read this first paragraph again.
A Coil of Rage
The character of any man is defined by how he treats his mother as the years pass…need I say more about this person below other than there is no character, no integrity but there is a ton of attitude and arrogance that defines his shallow past and hollow future…
I rest my case.
I bought and read Obama’s book, Audacity of Hope. It was difficult to read considering his
attitude toward us and everything American. Let me add a phrase he used to describe his
attitude toward whites. He harbors a “COIL OF RAGE”. His words not mine.
THIS IS OUR PRESIDENT — HE’S RUNNING AGAIN, YOU KNOW! Is anyone out there awake?
Everyone of voting age should read these two books by him: Don’t buy them, just get them from the library.
From Dreams From My Father:
“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
From Dreams From My Father:
“I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”
From Dreams From My Father:
“There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white.”
From Dreams From My Father:
“It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses,
to strike out and name names.”
From Dreams From My Father:
“I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa , that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.”
And FINALLY……….and most scary:
From Audacity of Hope:
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
I don’t care whether you are a Democrat, a Republican, a Conservative or a liberal, be aware of the attitude and character of this sitting President.
LIFE IS LIKE A COIN, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO SPEND IT ANYWAY YOU WISH, BUT YOU CAN ONLY SPEND IT ONCE.
“IN GOD WE TRUST”
Obama has waged war on my Church and really all of CHRISTIANITY will more than likely be next BUT the real easy way to win this war is very simple “VOTE” Obama out of office on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Christians need to stand together and fight as ONE.………mike
Wow! Listen to this!
Matters not your religion, please listen to this after his short prayer and the response of the crowd. Site is getting a lot of hits – be patient, may take 20 seconds or so to come up.
Stick with this thru the first few comments……you will be surprised. It is going to be an interesting election…..
An outspoken Colorado priest was asked to lead thousands of delegates in prayer at the state Republican convention.
What he said next caused quite a stir in the convention hall. See for yourself…
President Barack Obama’s campaign is recruiting legions of lawyers to handle disputes that may arise from now through Election Day.
Thousands of attorneys and support staffers have agreed to aid in the effort, providing legal support that appears to be unrivaled by Republicans or precedent. Obama’s campaign says it is particularly concerned about the implementation of new voter ID laws, challenges to voters and the handling of voter registration.
Obama legal counsel Robert Bauer contends that the GOP has pursued measures to prevent Obama from repeating his get-out-the-vote success of four years ago.
Republicans have legal teams of their own as well as a conservative organization that is training thousands of people to serve as poll watchers. The GOP says it is concerned about people voting fraudulently.

Democrats may cancel opening kick-off event due to a cash-flow problem.
Democrats canceled a political convention kick-off event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and will move the activities to Charlotte’s main business district, the convention’s host committee announced.
“While we regret having to move CarolinaFest away from our great partners at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the City of Concord, we are thrilled with the opportunity that comes with hosting this event in Uptown Charlotte,” said Dan Murrey, the executive director of the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee.
The move comes as party planners are grappling with a fundraising deficit of roughly $27 million, according to two people familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss internal party politics. With a party ban on direct contributions from corporations, the host committee has raised less than $10 million, well short of its $36.6 million goal, said one of the people.
Murrey said that logistics, not costs, were behind the decision to cancel the Speedway event.

A Las Vegas “odds maker” opines on why Obama will get “killed” by Romney in November.
Wayne Allyn Root
May 30, 2012
Town hall Alerts
Most political predictions are made by biased pollsters, pundits, or prognosticators who are either rooting for Republicans or Democrats. I am neither. I am a former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, and a well-known Vegas oddsmaker with one of the most accurate records of predicting political races.
But as an odds-maker with a pretty remarkable track record of picking political races, I play no favorites. I simply use common sense to call them as I see them. Back in late December I released my New Years Predictions. I predicted back then- before a single GOP primary had been held, with Romney trailing for months to almost every GOP competitor from Rick Perry to Herman Cain to Newt- that Romney would easily rout his competition to win the GOP nomination by a landslide. I also predicted that the Presidential race between Obama and Romney would be very close until election day. But that on election day Romney would win by a landslide similar to Reagan-Carter in 1980.
Understanding history, today I am even more convinced of a resounding Romney victory. 32 years ago at this moment in time, Reagan was losing by 9 points to Carter. Romney is right now running even in polls. So why do most pollsters give Obama the edge?
First, most pollsters are missing one ingredient- common sense. Here is my gut instinct. Not one American who voted for McCain 4 years ago will switch to Obama. Not one in all the land. But many millions of people who voted for an unknown Obama 4 years ago are angry, disillusioned, turned off, or scared about the future. Voters know Obama now- and that is a bad harbinger.
Now to an analysis of the voting blocks that matter in U.S. politics:
*Black voters. Obama has nowhere to go but down among this group. His endorsement of gay marriage has alienated many black church-going Christians. He may get 88% of their vote instead of the 96% he got in 2008. This is not good news for Obama.
*Hispanic voters. Obama has nowhere to go but down among this group. If Romney picks Rubio as his VP running-mate the GOP may pick up an extra 10% to 15% of Hispanic voters (plus lock down Florida). This is not good news for Obama.
*Jewish voters. Obama has been weak in his support of Israel. Many Jewish voters and big donors are angry and disappointed. I predict Obama’s Jewish support drops from 78% in 2008 to the low 60’s. This is not good news for Obama.
*Youth voters. Obama’s biggest and most enthusiastic believers from 4 years ago have graduated into a job market from hell. Young people are disillusioned, frightened, and broke- a bad combination. The enthusiasm is long gone. Turnout will be much lower among young voters, as will actual voting percentages. This not good news for Obama.
*Catholic voters. Obama won a majority of Catholics in 2008. That won’t happen again. Out of desperation to please women, Obama went to war with the Catholic Church over contraception. Now he is being sued by the Catholic Church. Majority lost. This is not good news for Obama.
*Small Business owners. Because I ran for Vice President last time around, and I’m a small businessman myself, I know literally thousands of small business owners. At least 40% of them in my circle of friends, fans and supporters voted for Obama 4 years ago to “give someone different a chance.” I warned them that he would pursue a war on capitalism and demonize anyone who owned a business…that he’d support unions over the private sector in a big way…that he’d overwhelm the economy with spending and debt. My friends didn’t listen. Four years later, I can’t find one person in my circle of small business owner friends voting for Obama. Not one. This is not good news for Obama.
*Blue collar working class whites. Do I need to say a thing? White working class voters are about as happy with Obama as Boston Red Sox fans feel about the New York Yankees. This is not good news for Obama.
*Suburban moms. The issue isn’t contraception…it’s having a job to pay for contraception. Obama’s economy frightens these moms. They are worried about putting food on the table. They fear for their children’s future. This is not good news for Obama.
*Military Veterans. McCain won this group by 10 points. Romney is winning by 24 points. The more our military vets got to see of Obama, the more they disliked him. This is not good news for Obama.
Add it up. Is there one major group where Obama has gained since 2008? Will anyone in America wake up on election day saying “I didn’t vote for Obama 4 years ago. But he’s done such a fantastic job, I can’t wait to vote for him today.” Does anyone feel that a vote for Obama makes their job more secure?
Forget the polls. My gut instincts as a Vegas oddsmaker and common sense small businessman tell me this will be a historic landslide and a world-class repudiation of Obama’s radical and risky socialist agenda. It’s Reagan-Carter all over again.
But I’ll give Obama credit for one thing – he is living proof that familiarity breeds contempt.
The US Catholic Bishops have laid out their plan to defeat the Obama Administration’s HHS mandate this weekend. The Church is holding a Fortnight for Freedom to fight back against this unconstitutional law.
And a group of cloistered nuns was appointed “Prayer Ambassadors” in the fight for religious freedom.
Passionist Nuns Sister Mary Veronica, Mother Mary Salvador and Sister Mary Elizabeth spoke to reporters last week from behind the grille at their Ellisville monastery. From their cloister the nuns have been praying for religious liberty. Because they do not own a television or access the Internet, the nuns keep updated on the HHS mandate issue through the St. Louis Review, National Catholic Register, Our Sunday Visitor and L’Observatore Romano, which the sisters take turns reading aloud during meals. (St. Louis Review)
In deep violation of our First Amendment, Obama launched an all-out war against our Constitution’s protection of religious freedom with ObamaCare’s employer mandate. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is fighting back. Hard. As part of its major offensive campaign, the Fortnight for Freedom, the U.S. bishops are asking the faithful to devote part of their daily prayer lives to the issue of religious liberty.
The Passionist Nuns~
A small, cloistered group of eight women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Solitude, Penance, and Community, is taking up this fight with the best weapon they have, prayer. From their Immaculate Conception Convent in Ellisville, MO, the Passionist Nuns are devoted to “uniting (the fight for religious liberty), as the mystical body of Christ to Jesus on the Cross”.
From The St. Louis Review,
