Sarah Palin Wows Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN … “Freedom is a God given right”


“America is ready for another revolution and you are a part of this.”

Tonight keynote speaker former Alaska governor Sarah Palin brought down the house at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN.  Andrew Breitbart introduced Saracuda and away she went as only Sarah Palin can. Did she deliver to Tea Party Nation … You Betcha!


Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin rallied the Tea Party nation and the  and the Tea faithful in attendance with criticisms of the current Obama administration, questions of an out of control government spending, national security, the war on terror and the record federal budget deficits that is nothing more than generational theft. While providing red meat issues to the Tea Party faithful, she also provided common sense solutions.

To win that war, we need a Commander in Chief,
not a professor of law standing at a lectern

Palin made reference to Barack Obama and the Democrats three most recent losses in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts and said, “when you are  o for 3 it is time to stop lecturing and start listening”. Palin discussed Republican Scott Brown’s recent Senate victory in Massachusetts, a man and a truck and a dream to serve the American people, as she stated, “If there’s hope in Massachusetts, there’s hope everywhere,” … “His victory is a sign of more good things to come.”

Let me just be the first to correct Reuters, Sarah Palin did not try to rally conservatives on Saturday night at a national convention of the “Tea Party” movement, Sarah Palin did rally not only Conservatives, but Independents and those that are sick and tired of an non-responsive and non-representative out of control tax and spend government.

The Government that governs least, governs best.

Freedom is a God given right

Americans finest of our men and women in uniform are a force for Good throughout the world and that is nothing to Apologize For

Palin would later ask, “How’s that hope-y, change-y stuff working out for you?” An Obama  slogan of hope and change that swept Obama’s campaign into to the White House, but has been nothing more than a transparent lie.

The criticism from the media and Democrats of the Tea Party is about to come home to roost. What could be wrong with a group of people who believe the following: a government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Sarah Palin later went on to discuss foreign policy and the war on terrorism as being handled by Barack Obama. She stated, “we need a foreign policy that distinguishes its friends from its enemies”. Then Palin went after the administration for their handling of the Christmas Day underwear bomber as the situation was not handled well.

Regarding the treatment of Mr. Abdulmutallab, Ms. Palin delivered a blistering attack on Mr. Obama: “There are questions we would have liked this foreign terrorist to have answered before he [was] lawyered up and invoked our constitutional rights to remain silent. … Thanks to you, sir, we’re going to bestow them on a terrorist who wants to destroy our Constitution.”

Sarah palin provided some advice to the fledgling Tea Party movement to remember the big picture and deal with big ideas, something that would make Ronald Reagan proud and a tribute to the Gipper on the 99th anniversary of his birth.

“Each of us here is living proof that you don’t need a title to make a difference,” said Palin. “Let us not get bogged down in the small squabbles. Let us move on to the big ideas. To do so would be a fitting tribute to Ronald Reagan.”

With the 2010 and 2012 elections on the horizon, and the fact that many identify them self with the Tea Party movement, one would think that both the GOP and Democrats take heed of the Tea Party and their common sense and Constitutional approach to government. If not, do so at your own political peril.

UPDATE I: Sarah Palin’s Ready for ‘Another Revolution’ … Tea Party Style

Sarah Palin when talking of the Obama Administration made the comment that they have blamed every one else for their problems and plight, except their own agenda.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted the Obama administration on Saturday night during her 45-minute keynote address at the inaugural national “tea party” convention in Nashville. Palin said the president must “stop lecturing and start listening” and questioned whether Obama’s 2008 campaign theme was succeeding: “How’s that hopey-changey stuff working out for you?” she asked, to cheers. “It’s time they stop blaming everyone else.”

      The MSM and Democrats have made a grave error with The Tea Party. They called them names, tried to discredit them and otherized them.

      Now they are about to feel the power of the people.


    2. rightknight on February 7th, 2010 2:33 am

      The Tea Party is NOT a political party. Conservative Republicans
      and Conservative Democrats are behind the movement. It’s the
      so called ‘Progressives’ who are now sprinkled in both traditional
      parties that are being rejected by We the People. Giant over-
      arching, out of control government is what’s being targeted by
      this grassroots uprising. Credit card style abuse of the People’s
      treasure is a crime that needs to be punished. Our Constitution
      IS our law, it’s not a doormat for piss ants du jour!

    4. ITK on February 7th, 2010 5:08 am

      after the speech, she sat reading crib notes from her hand like a grade schooler…pathetic!
      SM: HAHAHA, the LEFT is a joke. Maybe it said that Barack Hussein Obama is the worst President evah!

      Sorry that Sarah did not have a teleprompter where she could state that there were 57 states and pronounce corpsman as “corpseman”.

      The LEFT has become so lame. Is it any wonder why they could not pass an agenda with 60 Senators and an overwhelming majority in the House.

      We all can’t be like your brilliant academic President. Then again, who would want to be.

      Talk about a reach. If that’s all ya got … Dems are going down like a sweet muffin in 2010 and will lose both the House and Senate.


    5. Susan on February 7th, 2010 8:31 am

      Go get ‘em, Sarah!! Kick their freaking arses and take names later…lmao! Palin 2012

    6. Scared Monkeys on February 7th, 2010 9:12 am

      The LEFT and the liberal lame stream media’s reaction to Sarahcuda and the Tea Party Convention is telling.

      They best not believe their own BS. They claim that the Tea Party is a bunch of irrelevant right wingers. Really … And bloggers are just people on a computer in their PJ’s too, right?

      A majority of people identify them self as Tea Party faithful, more than Reps and Donkeys.

      The continued attacks will only make it impossible for any Dems to be supported.

      Dear SM/R,

      My father taught me when the opposition has nothing truthful or meaningful to offer as a counter, all they can do is name call, point fingers, and do all they can to spin focus off the FACTS. ( #4 tried that didn’t they ? :>)

    8. on February 7th, 2010 10:08 am

      #4 ITK: How absolutely pathetic! Do you (supporter of Mr. Teleprompter) mean to tell us that anyone who uses a few notes to ensure correct citing of facts and figures is somehow “cheating”? This was NOT a grade school test; this was national TV. And, while Obama travels with up to 12 teleprompters in tow, SarahCuda prefers using 3 or 4 facts written on her hand.

      I am so proud of taking part in the first of the Tea Party. Only very minorly at taking part in organizing, and with that very tiny part a swollen head. It was taking a big chance! I (apology for using “I”) and the others I met were far from touble makers; much closer to managing a small farm, a business, working on a charity at church, supporting kids of thier local school…people more prone to going in and out of doors softly. —Getting their license numbers recorded by gov thugs, cops giving us tickets for ilegal turns into our event rather than trying to direct traffic, local media treating us as we did not happen at all, bigger talking heads spoke of us as anything but patriots.

      From the first meeting…wow, there was and exact balance of pride and shame. Were we doing right? Followed emediately by yes, our decendants trust in all of us to protect freedom. If the worst happens, what explaination will I give my grandkids as to — ‘did Americans stand up and fight off our very own Norway-ish invassion’. My own children in their late 20′s, mighty intelligent (acedemic scholars)…too young to realize the consequences of lost freedom. Just maybe the grey’s could work on this problem. But good golly, right out of the gate — all sorts joined the “party”. With kind talk to eachother of many views…no high pulse rates in dealing with eachother…set on working on a really really serious issue of Freedom at risk by way of home grown terroists.

      Yes, thanks Sarah! Thanks Glen Beck. Hannity. Scared Monkeys. Blogs. Some with far more to lose took huge chances on the Parties being straight arrows…the hopes in preservation of our very foundation. It was a “huge chance” for those with much to lose. Gratitude.

    10. DEO on February 7th, 2010 12:13 pm

      She said “I am proud to be an AMERICAN” 20 times while looking at her HAND!!! For 100 grand she should memorize her propaganda.

      How rich that she read her talk in a sing-song voice as she ripped Barack Obama for using a Teleprompter. Once she left the speech for the Q&A, she really went off-message, as well as nearly off-English. (Even though it looked like, at one point, she was reading answers off of her hand.) “They’re not knowin what are we gonna do if we don’t have Tea Party support” was one of my favorite head-scratchers, a great echo of “when Putin rears his head.”

    11. Michelle on February 7th, 2010 12:19 pm

      Thank you Sarah for telling it straight up. You are one brave & classy woman. The nasty liberals really hate Sarah and what she stands for. Keep up the good work and watch the liberals fall in 2010 & 2012.

      Go get ‘em girl

    12. St Stephen on February 7th, 2010 12:44 pm

      2010 and 2012

      Looks like it’s time for change ALL Americans can believe in.

      God bless America and our God-given rights that our military protects for us and we have the capacity and wherewithal to use.

      Palin2012 has a nice ring to it…the ring of freedom!

    13. Michelle on February 7th, 2010 1:50 pm

      #10 HaHa….Priceless

      You have the nerve to criticize her speaking when your President with a teleprompter can’t even pronounce corps. What a joke.

      The truth hurts don’t it?

    14. rightknight on February 7th, 2010 2:21 pm

      Where do all the old teleprompters go to die? Once they
      have outlived their lying careers, they file quietly to the
      ‘green’ industry that grinds them up and makes trophies
      from their materials. The trophies are presented to those
      who have misrepresented themselves the most. I would
      expect to find a shelf of them in the Obowma Library
      someday soon.

      #10, you slay me.

      You compare a teleprompter with every word on it including prompts to tell Obama to laugh, look serious and scratch his nose to 4 words wrote on a hand?

      Tell me the LEFT has not become this ignorant. Please, I actually like a challenge.

      Reading the answers off her hand? There were 5 words on their you fool! When I first got wind of this story I had assumed that maybe she had a cheat sheet with words and answers … it was 5 words.

      Hell, I have words wrote on my palm to … It says DEFEAT DEMS AND OBAMA IN 2010 & 2012!

      Washington’s First Inaugural Address

      It would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge… No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States… You will join with me, I trust, in thinking that there are none under the influence of which the proceedings of a new and free government can more auspiciously commence. ….

      Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor–and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” ….

      Sarah Palin

      “We don’t have all the answers as fallible men and women so it would be wise for us to start seeking some divine intervention again in this country, so that we can be safe and secure and prosperous again,” she said.

      “To have people involved in government who aren’t afraid to go that route, not so afraid of political correctness that, you know, they have to be afraid of what the media said about them if they were to proclaim their alliance to our creator.”


      2 Chronicles 7:14

      If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

      While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
      Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
      Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
      As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. ”

      God Bless America,
      Land that I love.
      Stand beside her, and guide her
      Thru the night with a light from above.
      From the mountains, to the prairies,
      To the oceans, white with foam

      Sarah donates the entire fee or payment for her speech to
      the Tea Party folks. Entirely! Her attitude is contagious.

      The reason God is the central ‘giver’ in terms of rights is
      because We the People don’t want some scruffy, self-centered
      human-like folks issuing biased permission to live one’s own life.
      Freedom emanates from God and not from some pointy-headed
      elites who wish to reinstitute modern slavery in our society.
      That’s why the framers of our Constitution applied Christian
      Philosophy heavily therein.

They will attack her again like an angry pack of plague infected sewer rats, but will fail. Sarah fights like a vixen for her beloved homeland, and will devour her oposition like the courageous vixen that she is! GO SARAH!!

      Palin is an idiot… And anyone who thinks she is worth something or has something to offer is a fool…

      You know I would have voted for McCain… But then he brought Palin on board.. She stired up racial tensions and encouraged propaganda for people to be afraid of Obama like he was going to kill your mother. She spoke lies, and relied on a marketing campaign to make her likable…

      She is an idiot…

      And it is funny Freedom is a God given right. And I am Free to say I want insurance corporations to be reined in and be watched over more. I want them fined for their sleezy behavior and if it continues it should be dismatled…

      When corporations first was conceived they where a company for the people and the government and they had a CAP on what they were allowed to earn. Once they either met their contractual obligation or the max amount allowed to earn they were dissolved.

      Now idiots support the idea corporations are an individual and more and more rights are being granted to them… Soon they be allowed to vote.

      Wake up tea party/republicans/democrats… You are fighting with each other while others are getting rich and keeping you inline by misdirecting you…

      I hate to beleive as a nation we are this dumb… We have turned our political system into reality TV on a grand scale…

      Get unhooked from the Drama and think for yourselves… Not Fox News or MSNBC but actually research information on your own…
