From the Eye on Palin Web Site: Exposing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s anti-wolf and anti-wildlife agenda

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin responded today to Hollywood Celeb and PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome) sufferer Ashley Judd’s video above. The video was sponsored by the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund.

Governor Sarah Palin released the following statement today in response to attacks by the Defenders of Wildlife:

“It is reprehensible and hypocritical that the Defenders of Wildlife would use Alaska and my administration as a fundraising tool to deceive Americans into parting with their hard-earned money.

“The ad campaign by this extreme fringe group, as Alaskans have witnessed over the last several years, distorts the facts about Alaska’s wildlife management programs. Alaskans depend on wildlife for food and cultural practices which can’t be sustained when predators are allowed to decimate moose and caribou populations. Our predator control programs are scientific and successful at protecting vulnerable wildlife. These audacious fundraising attempts misrepresent what goes on in Alaska, and I encourage people to learn the facts about Alaska’s positive record of managing wildlife for abundance.

“Shame on the Defenders of Wildlife for twisting the truth in an effort to raise funds from innocent and hard-pressed Americans struggling with these rough economic times.”

Flap is surprised “The ‘Cuda” didn’t invite Ashley up for a little demonstration of Alaska’s wildlife management program. But, Judd, wouldn’t go anyway because like many LEFT-WING Hollywood types she knows little or nothing about the subject.

Shame on Ashley Judd, indeed.

Sarah Palin Feb 3 2009

Alaska Gov, Sarah Palin, center, takes photos with members of the Army’s 4th Brigade Combat team (airborne) 25th Infantry Division during a deployment ceremony in Anchorage, Alaska on Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2009. The 3,500 solder brigade from Fort Richardson, Alaska is being sent to Afghanistan for 12 months. The brigade returned for a 14-month tour in Iraq in November and December 2007

The ‘Cuda has reissued her concerns about the Democrat/Obama Economic Stimulus bill. S. 1 as a rumor spread throughout conservative talk radio that she favored the bill. Her original press release while she was in Washington over the last weekend is here.

Here is Governor Palin’s statement:

Governor Sarah Palin again today expressed her serious concerns with President Obama’s proposed stimulus package. In a joint letter sent to Alaska’s congressional delegation, Governor Palin, House Speaker Mike Chenault and Senate President Gary Stevens cautioned that unrestrained spending, initiation of new programs that the states may be asked to continue after the federal stimulus is gone, and the borrowing of hundreds of billions of dollars to pay for it may result in serious economic problems in the future.

Governor Palin recently traveled to the nation’s capital to personally express her concerns with the stimulus package with business, economic and political leaders. The trip was not an effort to endorse or lobby for the current stimulus package now before Congress.

“I agree with the decision of Senator Murkowski and Congressman Young to vote NO on the package,” Governor Palin said.

The governor has strongly supported funding for infrastructure that creates good American jobs and will have a positive effect on the nation for generations to come.

“It’s a given that a stimulus package is needed and will happen,” Palin said. “With guaranteed spending on the table, I am arguing for needed construction projects and tax breaks that will truly stimulate the economy and create jobs, and against increased federal programs that will become a state’s unfunded mandate to continue funding for generations.”

Senate President Gary Stevens agreed. “We need the funding but not more federal programs to maintain,” he said. “We need to make wise use of limited state funds.”

House Speaker Mike Chenault added, “The letter addressed to members of Congress and the Alaska Delegation basically tells those members where Alaska sits on the issues of the stimulus package and how it will affect Alaska as far as a funding formula goes. So it just gives them a little bit clearer picture on what the needs are for the state of Alaska in comparison with the rest of the nation.”

Governor Palin and the legislative leadership also highlighted the conventional fuels that Alaska has to offer and the need to find ways the federal government can help bring the state’s clean burning natural gas through a pipeline to the midwest.

Governor’s Palin letter to Alaska’s Congressional delegation is here.

Comments Comments Off on Sarah Palin Continues to Express Serious Concern On Democrat/Obama Economic Stimulus Bill

McCain and Thune

Republican Presidential candidate Senator John McCain (L) walks into the Senate Chamber in the Capitol in Washington October 1, 2008.  McCain returned to Washington to vote on the $700 billion financial rescue package. With McCain is Senator John Thune (R-SD)

There is now a Senate Republican alternative to the Democrat/Obama economic stimulus bill, S.1..

A group of Republican U.S. senators on Tuesday offered a $445 billion (308.3 billion pound) alternative plan to boosting the ailing economy, about half of which would be in the form of tax cuts.

The stimulus package would include cutting payroll and income taxes for a year, as well as lowering the 35 percent corporate tax rate to 25 percent and offering home buyers a tax credit worth $15,000 or 10 percent of the purchase price, whichever is less.

Sens. John McCain, John Thune, and Mel Martinez were among the group of lawmakers offering the alternative to the $885 billion package crafted by Democrats who control the Senate.

Here is Senator McCain’s speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate opposing S. 1 is here.

Some highlights:

It is unfortunate that, even in these difficult economic times, Members of Congress could not resist the temptation to load up this bill with hundreds of millions of dollars in unnecessary spending that will do nothing to stimulate the economy.  Here are just a few of the things that have been included under the guise of stimulus:

In The House Bill:

  • $400 million for STD prevention;
  • $600 million for new cars for the federal government;
  • $34 million to remodel the Commerce Department headquarters here in DC;
  • $25 million to rehabilitate ATV trails;
  • $150 million for honey bee insurance;
  • $75 million for smoking cessation, and
  • $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts.

In The Senate Bill:

  • $100 million to assist States with aquaculture losses;
  • $300 million for diesel emission reduction grants;
  • $150 million for facility improvements at Smithsonian museums;
  • $198 million for school food service equipment, and
  • $2.9 billion for the Weatherization Assistance Program.

Flap wonders why McCain and the GOP did not craft such an alternative last October when he was running for President. Was the Bush White House an impediment?

Instead, McCain gave Obama a pass on the economy and the GOP ticket sank like a stone in the polls.


But, in comeback mode, McCain wants your support AND contributions.

Comments Comments Off on GOP Senators Propose Alternative to Democrat/Obama Stimulus Bill – Why Have They Waited So Long?

Statewide Cable TV ad in Nevada: “Hard Work”

The LEFT is worried that the GOP will pick off Harry Reid like they did to Tom Daschle. Hence the ad in response to the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s ad.

If the Nevada GOP can recruit a good candidate, they can pick off Dingy Harry in 2010.
