Don't Write Young Sarah Palin Off Yet

Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin

(Adapted from an article originally penned by one Dewie Whetsell, an Alaskan fisherman publishing in the Canadian Free Press)

Step up to the plate and take a few high inside and quite interesting facts on two very different ladies. Sarah Palin is a dynamo, a quick study when the time is right. Whether you're a Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, or Republican—the second half of this email should make all of us more than a little sick. The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics, well, until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I'm about to mention here.

1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.

2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, “don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.

3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor’s jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never mentioning—I imagine—that she’s packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.

4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.

5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.

6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won’t be holding my breath.

By the way, she was content to return to Alaska after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.

You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the Democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents’ wives.

So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals. I rest my case. Only fools who hide behind their own bigotry listen to the biased media. If you’ve read this far, prepare yourself for some glitz and glamour, Hollywood style, paid for your tax dollars at work. First Madame Michelle Obama’s servant list and pay scale will undoubtedly soil your undies. The current First Lady requires more than twenty personal attendants as if she were competing with the most self-delivering queens history has ever known.

  1. $172,200 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
  2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
  3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)
  4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
  5. $100,000 – Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  6. $90,000 – Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  7. $84,000 – Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
  8. $75,000 – Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
  9. $70,000 – Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)
  10. $65,000 – Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
  11. $64,000 – Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
  12. $62,000 – Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
  13. $60,000 – Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)
  14. $57,500 – Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
  15. $52,500 – Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary to The First Lady)
  16. $50,000 – Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special=2 0Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide to The First Lady)
  17. $45,000 – Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)
  18. $43,000 – Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)
  19. $40,000 – Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  20. $36,000 – Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)
  21. $35,000 – Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
  22. Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)(This is community organizing at it’s finest.)

Nhere has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President’s own pocket. This is first lady fraud and racketeering.

Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to Europe .

FRIENDS…..THESE SALARIES ADD UP TO SIX MILLION, THREE HUNDRED SIXTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS ($6,364,000) FOR THE 4 YEARS OF OFFICE????? AND WE ARE IN A RECESSION????? WELL….MOST OF US ARE. I GUESS IT’S OK TO SPEND WILDLY WHEN IT’S NOT YOUR OWN MONEY?????

And yet, remember how the liberal media squealed when the Republican Party with their own funds spent a mere $150K on some new clothes for their "backwater" VP candidate? What does this say for the First Lady's need to shine over and above her own natural station, Chicago daughter of middle class schoolteachers? Yes, Yes, I know, The Canadian Free Press has to publish this because the USA media is too scared they might be considered racist. Sorry USA!

Rockefellers Rip Exxon

As someone who actually spent quality time among the Rockefellers working for the minimum wage of $1.65/hr during my years as a teenager on offshore Cumberland Island, GA, this story warmed my heart. I spent several years in manual labor doing an odd assortment of jobs learning the construction trade from the time I was fourteen up through my senior year in highschool on the island where my pop worked as a master carpenter. Cumberland remains accessible to this day either by boat or by small four or six-seater plane, the latter to land on an old field requiring one or two flyovers to chase the feral cattle and horses from their grazing pasture, and is primarily under the authority of the National Park Service now.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, several branches of the Carnegie-Rockefeller clan were building "summer cottages" for themselves on family land they had inherited through the lineage of Thomas Carnegie, who had purchased the island and had built several plush mansions there in the 1880s before most of them were lost to fire and dilapidation due to later abandonment. Thomas also had a more famous brother named Andrew, the steel magnate turned library philanthropist. The families still hold onto parcels of land improved back in my own times, but a settlement was reached after years of law suits stipulating that when the last remaining immediate heir from that generation has passed away, the US government will control it all.

This was a special time in my life, and worthy of a blog or two in its own right, but keeping to the topic of the day:

Rockefellers Rip Exxon

MEMBERS of the uber wealthy Rockefeller family took a fight with Exxon Mobil Corp. public yesterday, challenging the oil giant spawned by their namesake to split the roles of chairman and chief executive officer and to focus more on renewable energy.

The family members, who describe themselves as the company's longest continuous shareholders, said they are concerned that Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil is too focused on short-term gains from soaring oil prices and should do more to invest in cleaner technology for the future. Separating the leadership roles, they argue, would better position the company for challenges to come.

"They are fighting the last war, and they're not seeing they're facing a new war," said Peter O'Neill, who heads the Rockefeller family committee dealing with Exxon Mobil and is the great-great-grandson of John D. Rockefeller.

Mr. O'Neill said he had the support of more than 80 percent of family members older than 21. Family representatives said that they were not sure how much of the company they own collectively but that it represented a significant holding. Mutual funds and other institutional investors, not individuals, are the company's top shareholders.
