How We Went From Sarah Palin to Donald Trump

and why Sarah Palin is the reason we are here

Prior to the 2008 election and going back way before Reagan, the liberal media controlled the narrative. President George W Bush and Republican strategists took the approach that the American people would not buy into the media narrative. But, they did. In 2008, Barack Obama was elected president because of what John Ziegler called media malpractice.

When Sarah Palin was nominated to be the 2008 VP candidate, the media and the Obama campaign went into panic mode. The groundswell of forgotten people, the silent majority, coming out in full throated chants of "Sarah, Sarah" was the reaction from millions of Americans who found their voice in her. Then the media onslaught ensued.

The false stories started pouring out of Alaska about her pregnancy with Trig, the rape kits that she supposedly denied victims and how she said she could see Russia from her house. We all know how the media embarked on a campaign to destroy her all the way through her governorship.

There was no anti media fire back then. She had no cover.

Since then, conservative media has grown in leaps and bounds. Those who shared the blogosphere with this writer went on to become great warriors and suddenly the Palin army was on the move.

Palin went on to lead Tea Party rallies and made another breakthrough by explaining crony capitalism in her speeches and on social media. It was her extension of her go along to get along meme in many of her prior speeches.

She was never in the position to take on a vicious media. Swept out of Alaska and into what turned out to be an inept John McCain presidential campaign run by Steve Schmidt, she was thrust into the national spotlight only to be left undefended by a campaign not ready to fight.

Fast forward to a restaurant in New York where she and Donald Trump met for a slice of pizza. From that day forward, the game was on. She had led her high school basketball team not as their star, but as the most important position player in the game. She did it again.

Trump announced his candidacy and Palin was on board. No money exchanged hands. No political deal was struck. Sarah Palin had drawn the silent majority out of exile and rallied them around the shining city on a hill that had been turned into a second class urban decay zone by President Barack Obama.

When Sarah Palin said on Facebook the day after she resigned her governorship that she didn't have to be the lead, she may have never realized, nor did her supporters, that when she said she could still be an agent for change that this is how it would go down.

That silent majority that Palin roused from their doldrums became the Trump movement. And when it came time to take back that now dulling city on a hill and make it shine again, the monster that Palin had created needed a bullwark. Sarah needed a big guy with a canon directed at the media and the establishment.

And with one slice of pizza, she knew that we were standing in front of the door to the city. She knew that door needed to be busted down so that we could all get back in and make that city great again.

The only way to take that city back would be to first defeat 16 rivals in the Republican party. Though all good men and women, no one had the strategy. Defeat the media. Be fearless against liberalism. Tell the truth, no matter how politically incorrect it may be. We were outsiders. The only one who could lead us would have to be an outsider.

Palin taught us that by her example and by her words. She inspired a movement that led to us electing the most unconventional candidate of our time. What made Palin supporters Palin supporters is that which made us Trump supporters.

The draft of this post has been sitting here waiting for me to finish it. But before I went back to complete it, I saw my friend Tony Lee at Breitbart had already done a better job of explaining it than I did.

He saved me a lot of writing. Read this gem, which was also tweeted by Sarah Palin herself, and you will know why we really took our country back.

Okay Liberals, Let the Game Continue!

When US intelligence agencies illegally record a conversation between General Flynn and the Russian ambassador then leak that to the press to advance a leftist agenda to destroy the Trump administration, that's a bigger violation than discussing dismissing Russian diplomats prior to inauguration.

That information should have been classified and immediately brought to the president and vice president in private. Then the VP (not Reince Priebus) could have recommended that Flynn step down later.

Obama is creating a shadow government within our government. There are still many bureaucrats in there that are in on it.

If anything, we need to find the source of the leaks and Trump needs to start firing people within the intelligence community and the general bureucracy.

The CIA, the FBI and the federal bureaucracy is not happy that they are no longer running the country. Trump is an existential threat to the "real government" and they don't like it.

And the media is running the front line war. They are the opposition party.

This is not kool aid drinking. This is reality. If liberals can step back and get off the non-existent yoga rugs that were never actually in Hillary emails that she bleach bitted, then maybe we can start looking at the realities of the situation.

So when Hillary does underhanded stuff, we need to rely on Wikileaks to hack the information? When Flynn has a conversation, its okay for American intelligence agencies to record and leak the information?

In a sense, the liberals are taking a page out of our playbook which we stole from their playbook. So kudos. But their hypocrisy is so glaringly obvious when liberals accuse conservatives of doing the same thing they were doing.

These are the new rules of politics. If anything, Saul Alinsky taught us a lot. Republicans must continue to fight using his strategy. Saul Alinsky is to politics what the strategist in football who invented the forward pass is. Once the opponents started using it, the games got good.

Alinsky tactics work no matter which side of the aisle you are on. Donald Trump taught the GOP to take on the media bias. It's up to to Republicans to learn and move the ball forward. May the games continue.

The City Starts to Shine Again

After a long eight years of anguish and despair. "the carnage" comes to an end. With the replacement of the crimson drapes in the oval office with gold ones, the cleaning and the buffing begins. America is starting to become that shining city on a hill again.

The Tea Party movement and the conservative movement can take heart in the fact that no one in their camps ever killed a cop, burned an American flag, lit a car on fire or looted a store. We may have done a little fighting amongst ourselves in blogs and on social media, but even the remaining #nevertrump folks on our side don't need therapy dogs or safe spaces.

As the city begins to shine again, we are optimistic that the "hood like" nature of Obama's America with murders in Chicago, police being killed and the long welfare and food stamp lines will give way to rule of law and economic prosperity while many leave the welfare lines to go to work at the newly created jobs that are on the way.

This is not a racist analysis. This is a mathematical one. African Americans have long been kept on the government dole in order to keep them voting for the Democrats. With a blazing economy, many will be going from the hood to the crib on their own dime earned in a booming Trump economy. Casting a ballot for them will no longer be a vote to take what others earn, but to keep what they earn.

The city will shine for all races regardless of their ideological or sexual orientation. The only thing that can hold back identity politics oriented individuals will be themselves.

Throwing tantrums, whining and complaining or protesting without a legitimate grievance will make whatever identity or splinter group you say you are part of look silly and less credible. The rest of us grown ups will be Americans regardless of what we do in our bedrooms or bathrooms because there is no room in the public square to impose one life style or belief system over another.

Patriotism will trump prejudice, as our President said. We are all Americans first.

I'm willing to keep my lifestyle out of your face if you're willing to keep your lifestyle out of mine. But if you want to go make some money together, work together or help people together, sign me up.

Let's keep the garbage out of legislation and let's go live freely. Our magic is not in how we can regulate each other, our magic is in our hearts. No healthcare mandate or EPA regulation can make us better. If one is not living by the golden rule then that's on them. It's not on us.

We can make and live by our own decisions. We don't need government to do that for us. We have been given a great responsibility by having been blessed with freedom. Give up responsibility, give up freedom.

The power is being returned to the people. If we can handle it, just watch this city shine again.
