SARAH PALIN GIVES DONALD TRUMP A RINGING ENDORSEMENT AHEAD OF THE IOWA CAUCUSES …
Last night former Alaska governor and 2008 VP running mate Sarah Palin gave Donald Trump her endorsement for the 2016 GOP presidential race. It was not just a plain old one, it was quite a ringing endorsement. This was a little surprising, but maybe it is not as this 2016 political season has been one like no other in recent times. I understand Republicans want to win back the White House, but for me these days, its no longer a T or D thing, its a conservative thing. I have seen too many Republicans disappoint me. Obviously, Donald Trump has tapped into the political outsider thing. Which is what has caused the momentum and his front-runner status. Now he is tapping into that same energy that Palin attracted years ago. During her endorsement speech she stated, “Well, I am here because like you I know that it is now or never. I’m in it to win it because we believe in America, and we love our freedom. And if you love your freedom, thank a vet. Thank a vet, and know that the United States military deserves a commander-in-chief that our country passionately, and will never apologize for this country. A new commander-in-chief who will never leave our men behind. A new commander-in-chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen.”

Today Donald J. Trump received the coveted and influential endorsement of former Vice Presidential Candidate and Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Palin praised Trump’s leadership and unparalleled ability to speak the truth and produce real results. A trusted conservative, Palin has a proven record of being fiscally modest, staunchly pro-life and believes in small government that allows businesses to grow and freedom to prosper. Gov. Palin joined Mr. Trump in Ames on Tuesday, just two weeks before the Iowa Caucuses, to announce her endorsement of the GOP frontrunner.
Mr. Trump stated, “I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement. She is a friend, and a high quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”
However, I am a bit taken aback, much like William Teach from The Right Wing News. Trump has some conservative qualities, positions and he speaks his mind; however, he is no Conservative. Just remember that folks. I just hope this ends well. I hope!!!
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, providing him with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.
“Are you ready for the leader to make America great again?” Mrs. Palin said with Mr. Trump by her side at a rally at Iowa State University. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States — Donald Trump.”
Her support is the highest-profile backing for a Republican so far. It came the same day that Iowa’s Republican governor, Terry Branstad, said he hoped that Senator Ted Cruz would be defeated in Iowa. The Feb. 1 caucuses are a must-win for the Texas senator, who is running neck-and-neck with Mr. Trump in state polls.
The endorsement came as Mr. Trump was bearing down in the state, holding multiple campaign events and raising expectations about his performance in the nation’s first nominating contest.
As Mrs. Palin announced her backing, Mr. Trump stood wearing a satisfied smile as she scolded mainstream Republicans as sellouts and praised how Mr. Trump had shaken up the party. “He’s been going rogue left and right,” Mrs. Palin said of Mr. Trump, using one of her signature phrases. “That’s why he’s doing so well. He’s been able to tear the veil off this idea of the system.”
It is not clear that Mrs. Palin’s blessing will have a major impact on Mr. Trump’s long-term prospects. But in Iowa, where Mrs. Palin spent years developing a network of supporters, it could be helpful. Mr. Trump has faced questions about whether his campaign’s organizing muscle can draw the voters to match his poll numbers come caucus night.
One thing I do not want to hear from Donald Trump or the Palin’s when it comes to Ted Cruz and that is that he is some kind of bad and hated man. That’s BS. To be honest, prior to Trumps presidential run for the GOP many who know support him thought he was a blow hard billionaire. Check out via Weasel Zippers how Ted Cruz reacted with class to Palins endorsement of Trump. Cut the nonsense Trump, and stop it right now. Cruz is actually a conservative, you are not.
