“Nothing Replaces a Daddy” – Lt. Col. Oliver North

By Lt. Colonel Oliver North, USMC

The following story is an excerpt from Lt. Col. Oliver North's new release,
American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam.

"The explosion of a carefully planted IED mangled Sgt Edwards below his body armor. The first person to him was U.S. Navy medical Corpsman Christopher Anderson. The man they called "Doc" Anderson immediately applied tourniquets to Edwards' shattered limbs and started an IV to ward off shock.

As they raced for the LZZ to meet an inbound casualty-evacuation helicopter, Edwards looked up at the man who was checking his pulse and said, 'take care of my babies, Doc.'

Anderson shouted back, 'You're going to take care of your babies. You're going to be OK!'

Marine Sgt Gregory Edwards was on his third deployment to Iraq when new wounds sent him back to Walter Reed. In 2003 he had been part of the initial assault on Baghdad and saw the statue of Saddam Hussein toppled. He'd been wounded on his second deployment and spent time recovering at Bethesda and Walter Reed. When 1st Bn, 6th Marines, was slated for a third deployment, he insisted on going along.

This time, however Gregory Edwards' road to recovery would never end. Though the doctors operated on him more than thirty times, they couldn't save his shattered legs. When all the surgery was done, he had one stump above the knee, a stump below the other knee, and only one functioning hand.

'I lost my legs for the people of Iraq, so their children will be able to run around, just like mine. If time was turned back, I'd do it all over again," said Sgt Edwards, father of two."

This excerpt, taken from American Heroes, is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of fathers who are standing on the front lines of war while their families anxiously await their return home.

"These 'heroes on the home front' are essential for the strength of our military as a whole and for the defense of this nation," said Lt. Col. North.

To celebrate Father's Day and honor the tremendous sacrifice made by so many fathers since the beginning of the war on terror, Lt. Col. North has made signed copies of his book available on his website,, throughout the month of June.

With more than 350 full-color images and exclusive access to even more stories from inside the trenches online, American Heroes presents a no-holds-barred, up-close look at this generation's citizen soldiers who have chosen the path of the patriot to go into harm's way.

Conservatism vs Liberalism is a distraction

Today's thoughts:

The more I read online the more I pray, I understand that despite what we may believe the issues we're experiencing in this nation are really not between Left and Right political parties so much as is between Darkness and Light. (I am conservative and wold not doom my liberal leaning-Obama loving 5 year nephew to eternal socialist hell--or anyone else for that matter).

I've been thinking of a way to introduce liberals to the true conservatives to help dispel the stereotypes.(funny how they stereotype "us" as so different from "them" where "us" are stuffy white men and "them" are fun enlightened and ethnically diverse....said the african-american conservative woman to the presumably caucasian liberal empathizer)

God is showing me a different perspective on these issues as being between he calls
----usury and unjust gain vs justly governing national affairs---

From the federal banks to the federal welfare recipients we all need to repent and judge not, capitalism in the hands of the greedy businesses included will not stand in this day.

No matter the effects...the cause rests solely upon the Christians charged with being salt and light to preserve God's will and scatter darkness from this earth.

Fear not, Believe only--

A Very Important Lesson for Creative Conservatives

Today I am so happy that I have my own little space in the blogosphere! I never thought I would say that but lately my online activity has been buzzing and frankly noisey! I am slowly getting into twitter ...slowly... and noticed a tweet about the negative effects of rehashing bad news, events, experiences, etc.

The tweet suggested that we resist the temptation to spend large amounts of time talking about negative things that happen to us, even to our closest friends, because typically the retelling is more like re-living, and really, who needs that?

You know how you feel when you find out that someone in your office has assigned you to do yet another task, or, while you were busy with one project, they come along, take credit or change another of your projects? Here is my remedy:

I heard a sermon recently (the tweet reminded me of all of this, and this is my point) that encouraged me to refrain from competitiveness and to choose creativity instead. The sermon suggested that when we are competitive in our work and business, for example, we spend too much energy focusing on what the "competition" is doing, rather than realizing there is enough room for all the creativity God placed in each of us.

think about it, and run your own race and you will win!

CPAC, CFR and, The Constitution

h/t The Ideations of a Jayhawker

"We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be.

We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause]

We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause]

Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you." ~Rush Limbaugh

A great speech overall, but I have a few issues with it, and with the speaker.

First of all, you will notice in the second paragraph that he mentions the "inarguable truth" in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution that we are endowed by our creator with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Before I continue, let me mention that he was awarded the "Defender of the Constitution" award.

The preamble to the Constitution, you know, the "We the People" document, doesn't say anything about life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness; that's a quote from the Declaration of Independence.

"Ooh, Soory!" ~Alex Trebek

From "Go Sarah" Blog


to say one word against Christians. That's just racist. And it's shows one is Christ-phobic. Is that stupid of me to say??
Because Christians are so many diverse races??
And because it's propaganda to apply the word "phobic" to one's dissenting detractors??

I'd agree.

Equally, Islam is full of different races. To say that anyone who critiques them is "Islam-phobic" is as ridiculous as calling that person "racist".

When will people stop to think with objectivity?

Instead of being so full of hatred for white Christians that they bounce to the degree of defending a misogynist, racist, genocidal belief system of Islam that hates women (enslaves and murders them) and seeks the genocide murder all Jews, atheists, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, basically everyone.

You folks who hate white Christians - you're overcompensating.

Detach from your blind hate of the Christian religion and white Christians -- and stop being so reactionary.

See Islam for what it is - you'll be able to once you stop hating white Christians so very much that you're too emotional to be objective and to see all the evil and danger of the Islamic demand for global domination, etc.

The POTUS Palin WARNED Us About..

This is my favorite Palin Picture (Go Mama!) 

Below is my Favorite Quote- 
(I started another blog to discuss and analyze the meanings):

"But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.

Politics isn't
just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.

right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.

No one expects us to agree on everything.

But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and ... a servant's heart."

Many of us wanted HER for those reasons. Here is where she warned American voters. Perhaps it was her motherwit combined with that great smile that distracted some us from listening to Sarah tell us who and what she is about. Had her critics spent time listening to her WORDS, they would have gotten this big Heads Up:

"But listening to him {BO} speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state senate.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting, and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed ... when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot - what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger ... take more of your money ... give you more orders from Washington ... and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy ... our opponent is against producing it."

Many thought she was just being mean-spirited...well guess what...they were wrong! The good news in this post is this: 
Although tax scandals are more common than some may have realized, many are standing up against the
A. Self-righteousness of those who are "black kettle-calling" that otherwise may not have surfaced so quickly,
B. Thanks in part to the Exponential Information sharing that is successfully galvanizing conservatism

Both of which should be tremendously helpful as all politicians clean up their acts (only God knows how much more damage may have been done), and as we move into a new era of elections!

Joe Plumber: Couldn't talk about Palin on McCain Bus

OK this is a 30 minute interview with Joe the Plumber,  in the closing minutes a caller asks him to comment on whether he noticed any of the in-fighting or drama being reported about Governor Palin, "I brought up one time how great I thought she was and no one responded.." it begins to get interesting but DOH time mysteriously runs out..

Good Work Joe! 

Thanks for going on record (wonder if he names any of these crooks is in his book, Joe The Plumber?)

All I know is, whether Gov runs for POTUS or not, the RINO rangers are picking sides and it ain't ours! 
Who knows, maybe we have some DINO's out there.....

ASK not what Sarah Palin can do for your country, ask only what you can do for Sarah Palin. And the an swer is, pay attention. Trust me, Alaska's governor is moving faster than those glaciers.

Traveling with one of her ladies-in-waiting and invited by a rich GOPnik, she'll be at Saturday's invite-only/political mandarins-only Alfalfa Club dinner in DC. This club began back aways to honor Gen. Robert E. Lee whom, you may recall, did a little something in the Civil War. Why it exists, I don't know. What it does, I don't know. I only know it's too exclusive to include someone like me and is so high-powered that sitting US presidents attend, which means Obama should show. Anyway, Sarah will be there, and that's meaningful because this lady may only leave the frozen tundra two days a month.

She's also launching her national political action committee. Registered in Virginia, patterned after Hillary's HillPac, is to support ideas and candidates who share the Palin vision that energy independence is this country's future.

Next month she addresses a Washington gathering of prominent conservatives. She's going ahead with a book. Her Facebook page has 410,000 friends. She wants to influence policy knowing the nation must turn to Alaska as its energy resource. She's planning to be president.

The temperature in Sarah's state was recently 78 below. Question is what will she wear to this Alfalfa dinner - Manolo mukluks?

Caroline Kennedy says: Nevermind!

ALBANY, N.Y. – Caroline Kennedy withdrew her Senate bid because of a personal matter unrelated to her ill uncle, rejecting the governor's attempt to get her to reconsider, a person who worked closely with her said Thursday. Kennedy discussed withdrawing from the race with Gov. David Paterson on Wednesday, and Paterson asked her to reconsider for 24 hours, the person said.
But by 11 p.m. Wednesday, the associate said, Kennedy decided she couldn't take the job if appointed, and she issued a statement shortly after midnight saying she was withdrawing.
Kennedy did not decide to bow out because her uncle, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, suffered a seizure during an inaugural luncheon Tuesday, the person said. The 76-year-old Massachusetts senator was diagnosed in May with an aggressive type of brain tumor.
The person wasn't authorized to disclose the conversation between Kennedy and the governor and spoke on condition of anonymity. The person would give no other details about the personal matter.
Kennedy's one-sentence statement ended hours of uncertainty as she appeared to waver.
"I informed Governor Paterson today that for personal reasons I am withdrawing my name from consideration for the United States Senate."
There was no comment from Paterson.
Kennedy, the 51-year-old daughter of President John Kennedy, emerged as a front-runner to replace Clinton. But there were questions about her experience and her reluctance to answer questions about her finances.
The seat was once held by Caroline Kennedy's slain uncle, Bobby Kennedy, and her initial announcement that she wanted to be considered was met with both excitement from supporters and skepticism from those who maintained that she was simply trading on her famous name to get into public office.
With no official explanations from the governor or from Kennedy, political observers were still wondering whether she bowed out on her own, or whether the governor had decided to pick someone else.
Doug Muzzio, a political science professor at Baruch College, called Kennedy's withdrawal "bizarre and ultimately embarrassing" to her and Paterson.
State Sen. Malcolm Smith, the Democratic majority leader in Albany, said Thursday that Paterson told him he still plans to announce a Senate appointment by Saturday.
Kennedy's decision boosted the chances of several other candidates, including Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who surpassed Kennedy in statewide polls last week. Cuomo had no comment Thursday.
Paterson has said Cuomo had outstanding credentials for the job. Cuomo was the housing secretary under President Bill Clinton. Cuomo was elected attorney general in 2006 and has since led national reforms in the student loan industry and had a role in reining in corporate spending on Wall Street.
Cuomo is also the most popular elected politician in New York in polls — higher than Paterson, whose approval rating, while still high, has been slipping.
Paterson has asked potential candidates to respond to a 28-page questionnaires. The forms ask about personal finances and other background issues, many of which Kennedy has long shielded from the public.
Kennedy, an author, lawyer and fundraiser for New York City schools, has long guarded her privacy, and the questionnaires were expected to include some closely guarded Kennedy financial data. Paterson had said he thought the candidates' responses would be confidential because it was his personal request that they fill them out.
But the state's open-government expert and good-government groups told the AP that once the forms were written and submitted to the governor at least some of the responses would be subject to public review under the state Freedom of Information Law.
Kennedy jumped to the top of statewide polls in early December, but her public support waned following a brief upstate tour and a few press interviews.
She was criticized as reluctant to answer questions, and her knowledge of New York and its issues were suspect. She was also mocked nationwide for her frequent use of "you know" and "um" in interviews and was branded a lackluster campaigner.
The Kennedy reports came hours after Rep. Carolyn Maloney, some Democrats' top choice, was named chair of the Joint Economic Committee in Congress. That's a significant move because Paterson had made it clear the next senator's top job should be to help land a federal stimulus package to help New York out of its historic fiscal crisis.

Gov. Arnold's a Nazi?

h/t Son3 who has really done some legwork on this piece
(of course Gov A is not a he?)

From This Week's Show: Obama and Globalism
Show #2, on January 10th, 2009:
American Republic Radio

I discussed B.O.'s inconlusivity of citizenship status, which is quite... inconclusive. For further reading of this subject, I would suggest Obama is Not a Citizen, as it succinctly lists the accusations and circumstantial evidence surrounding Obama.

Obama's official website detailing his not-so-sugar-coated policies was also a point of reference.

For details on Obama's voting record for guns, I would direct you to the Gun-Ban Obama website.

If you would like to wade through the lawyer-talk and see the newest attempt to reinstate the draft, go to Congress' own website.

For the referenced TIME Magazine cover of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his "Nazi Pride" belt-buckle:

Compare to other Nazi "death's heads" or "Totenkopf" in German:

Bush Admits, ‘I Chucked Aside My Free Market Principles’

Bush Admits, ‘I Chucked Aside My Free Market Principles’
Monday, January 12, 2009
By Susan Jones, Senior Editor
(President George W. Bush holds his last formal news conference at the White House on Monday, Jan. 12, 2009. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

President George W. Bush holds his last formal news conference at the White House on Monday, Jan. 12, 2009. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
( – President Bush on Monday defended his economic record, noting that he’s taken “extraordinary measures” to deal with the frozen credit markets.

He said the main question for the president is not when the problem started, but what action was taken once the problem was recognized:

“And I readily concede that I chucked aside some of my free market principles when I was told by chief economic advisers that the situation we were facing could be worse than the Great Depression,” Bush said at a White House news conference.

Bush said thanks to the multi-billion-dollar financial industry bailout, credit spreads are beginning to shrink, and lending is beginning to pick up. “The actions we have taken, I believe, have helped thaw the credit markets, which is the first step toward recovery.”

Bush said he inherited a recession when he first took office, and he’s ending on a recession. “In the meantime, there were 52 months of uninterrupted job growth.”

Bush noted that he’s been a staunch defender of tax cuts, and he will continue to defend them “as the right course of action.”

Immigration reform

If he had it to do over again, President Bush says he probably would have pushed for immigration reform rather than Social Security reform at the beginning of his second term.

“Legislative branches tend to be risk-averse,” he noted. “Sometimes legislatures have the tendency to ask, ‘Why should I take on a hard task when the crisis is not imminent?’ And the crisis was not imminent for Social Security as far as members of Congress were concerned.”

Bush said he does agree with the conventional wisdom that Social Security is the “third rail” of American politics. He said in the future, refusal to talk about fixing Social Security will be detrimental to a politician’s career.

Asked about mistakes and regrets at a Monday morning press conference at the White House, President Bush also mentioned the following items:

-- Bush said he wonders if he could have done something different about Hurricane Katrina.

-- "Clearly, putting 'Mission Accomplished' on an aircraft carrier was a mistake," Bush said. The banner went up shortly after Saddam Hussein was forcibly removed from office.

-- "Some of my rhetoric" has been a mistake, Bush said. He was widely criticized for daring terrorists to "Bring it on!"

-- The abuses at Iraq’s Abu Graib prison were a “disappointment,” Bush said, and so was failing to turn up weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. “I don’t know if you want to call those mistakes or not, but things didn’t go according to plan, let’s put it that way,” he said.

Bush said historians will be better able to judge his mistakes when time has passed.


President Bush said he “strongly disagrees” with the notion that America’s moral standing has been damaged by the way it interrogated enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

America’s moral standing “may be damaged among some of the elite, but people still understand America stands for freedom – that America is a country that provides such great hope.”

He noted that some countries criticized America for incarcerating enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay, “but when it came time for those countries that were criticizing America to take some of those detainees, they weren’t willing to help out.”

Bush says he never worried about being popular, but always did what he thought was best for the country.

Gaza conflict

President Bush said he still hopes for a “sustainable ceasefire” in the Middle East that includes a cessation of Hamas rocket fire into Israel. “I happen to believe the choice is Hamas’s to make,” he said.

Bush said the best way to ensure a sustainable ceasefire is to get Egypt to help stop the weapons smuggling into Gaza. He also said the international community needs to pressure countries (such as Iran) to stop supplying weapons to Hamas.

Bush said Israel “has a right to defend herself,” although he hopes Israel will “continue to be mindful of innocent folks” and work to “expedite the delivery of humanitarian aid.”

National Security

President Bush said the biggest threat facing the Obama administration is another attack on the homeland. “There is still an enemy out there that would like to inflict damage on America – Americans,” he warned, and this will continue to be the case.

Bush said North Korea is still a major problem, and he said Iran is “still dangerous.”

As for Iraq, in the long run, he said, the question is will democracy survive there? He said that’s going to be the challenge for future presidents.

Who would pay for a Senate seat?


who pays for this stuff? really? i happened upon a blog of note, and am still clearing my eyes and throat from laughter to tears over this stranger than fiction press junket. Son3: The Ideations of a Jayhawker ended 2008 with this:

I would like to ring in 2009 with this stunning display of eloquent speech and an outstanding performance of oratory genius in the Senate chamber. Yes, this is a man that has been elected time and time again to the Upper House of the Legislative Body of our Government which we call the Senate.

Our Government, the one that spends billions of your dollars with the flick of a pen, is partially run by that man.

Not too many speeches like that anymore.

Be sure to wake up in time to watch the ball drop in Times Square!

I am beginning to understand that these are our employees (they certainly are taking all of the money), note the irony of the billion dollar economic stimulus amounts crawling across the screen. sigh

MSNBC stranger than fiction Shuster outs Palin 2012

Shuster is a crybaby okay so he was not crying but it looked like he wanted to, I get that all of the producers of these shows must have been given pink slips and the writers are next, otherwise what on EARTH would explain this "performance"?

FTR (for the record), it is honest to just say you don't like Sarah Palin, it is stupidity to insult your own qualifications by taking stabs at hers...think about it, she is a GOVERNOR..let's try to keep the stupidity to a minimum.
Shouldn't the media be focusing on what to wear for BO day or dogs for BO day or something that is more interesting to the "65%" poll Shuster is quoting.. Good Works Governor!

Thursday, January 8, 2009

Wait, did Bill O'Reily OUT Sarah for President 2012?!?

First of all, WHO is this guy, I really don't watch TV and after the election, I am leery of FoxNews (ahem Colmes ahem), so imagine my surprise when I saw this O'Reily guy, I STILL don't know whether he supports Sarah, I know he hates Ann Coulter so he too must be starved for ratings for pulling this stunt! Fast Forward a bit..

Tell me, in case I missed something, has Governor Palin's "camp" made any announcements? I thought she was referring to 2010, nice also of him to remind us that the POTUS has yet to take office, and then proceed to imply that GOVERNOR Palin is wasting her wonderful life away to 2012...somehow I think she is leaving that to the (we) blogging experts!!

My suggestion is to take it one day at a time, fight the good fight because only what you do for Christ is going to last anyway .. some of us better get ta gettin'

“CNN-GATE” - why not a PUBLIC apology? and why not equal in exposure to the unfair trashing

January 6th, 2009 12:52 PM Eastern

“CNN-GATE” - why not a PUBLIC apology? and why not equal in exposure to the unfair trashing?
by Greta Van Susteren
MORE ON CNN-GATE: (and, yes, I am having some light hearted fun calling it CNN-GATE…this IS Washington, DC!)

I just talked to a source who told me that CNN, from its Political Director, through a Wolf Blitzer producer Jill Chappell emailed a PRIVATE apology to the Governor of Alaska for putting her (unfairly trashing her) on the list with Senator John (”my wife is in cancer remission so I figured it was ok to cheat on her”), Governor Elliott (” has anyone seen my other black sock? the dryer again?”) and others….and then blasting the unfair trashing around the world ! The producer emailed that she did not know about the trashing and neither did Wolf nor the Political Director.

so now two questions:

1. why didn’t CNN PUBLICLY apologize for this one? they sure unfairly trashed her publicly on that list….should not exposure of the apology equal the round the world exposure of the unfair trashing? That is what is done in court - you do what is necessary to make the person whole in the damage done to the person…and then it is over.

2. a producer? why did she get stuck doing the dirty work on this one? why didn’t someone higher up the corporate food chain send the message of apology if CNN really means it? the job stature of the person making the apology can mean much. This IS the Governor of the largest state…a former candidate for VP….and the trashing went world wide and was really lousy….

(and yes, mistakes can be made….but how you respond to your mistakes says much about the person or the news organization.)
You ARE A Great American!!

God Explains 2009

Habakkuk 2 (The Message)

Habakkuk 2

1 What's God going to say to my questions? I'm braced for the worst. I'll climb to the lookout tower and scan the horizon.
I'll wait to see what God says,
how he'll answer my complaint.
Full of Self, but Soul-Empty

2-3And then God answered: "Write this.
Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It's on its way. It will come right on time.
4"Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—
full of himself but soul-empty.
But the person in right standing before God
through loyal and steady believing
is fully alive, really alive.

5-6"Note well: Money deceives.
The arrogant rich don't last.
They are more hungry for wealth
than the grave is for cadavers.
Like death, they always want more,
but the 'more' they get is dead bodies.
They are cemeteries filled with dead nations,
graveyards filled with corpses.
Don't give people like this a second thought.
Soon the whole world will be taunting them:

6-8"'Who do you think you are—
getting rich by stealing and extortion?
How long do you think
you can get away with this?'
Indeed, how long before your victims wake up,
stand up and make you the victim?
You've plundered nation after nation.
Now you'll get a taste of your own medicine.
All the survivors are out to plunder you,
a payback for all your murders and massacres.

9-11"Who do you think you are—
recklessly grabbing and looting,
Living it up, acting like king of the mountain,
acting above it all, above trials and troubles?
You've engineered the ruin of your own house.
In ruining others you've ruined yourself.
You've undermined your foundations,
rotted out your own soul.
The bricks of your house will speak up and accuse you.
The woodwork will step forward with evidence.

12-14"Who do you think you are—
building a town by murder, a city with crime?
Don't you know that God-of-the-Angel-Armies
makes sure nothing comes of that but ashes,
Makes sure the harder you work
at that kind of thing, the less you are?
Meanwhile the earth fills up
with awareness of God's glory
as the waters cover the sea.

15-17"Who do you think you are—
inviting your neighbors to your drunken parties,
Giving them too much to drink,
roping them into your sexual orgies?
You thought you were having the time of your life.
Wrong! It's a time of disgrace.
All the time you were drinking,
you were drinking from the cup of God's wrath.
You'll wake up holding your throbbing head, hung over—
hung over from Lebanon violence,
Hung over from animal massacres,
hung over from murder and mayhem,
From multiple violations
of place and people.

18-19"What's the use of a carved god
so skillfully carved by its sculptor?
What good is a fancy cast god
when all it tells is lies?
What sense does it make to be a pious god-maker
who makes gods that can't even talk?
Who do you think you are—
saying to a stick of wood, 'Wake up,'
Or to a dumb stone, 'Get up'?
Can they teach you anything about anything?
There's nothing to them but surface.
There's nothing on the inside.

Quiet everyone—a holy silence. Listen!"

The governor's office just sent out this statement:

Governor Sarah Palin Welcomes Her First Grandchild

December 31, 2008, Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin has welcomed her first grandchild, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, born to Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston on December 27.

“We are over the moon with the arrival of this healthy, beautiful baby,” Governor Palin said. “The road ahead for this young couple will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy. Bristol and Levi are committed to accomplish what millions of other young parents have accomplished, to provide a loving and secure environment for their child. They are both hard workers, they’re very strong, and have faith they’ve made the right decision in setting aside their own interests to make this child their highest priority.”

Palin added, “When Bristol and Levi first told us the shocking news that she was pregnant, to be honest, we all at first looked at the situation with some fear and a bit of despair. Isn’t it just like God to turn those circumstances into such an amazing, joyful blessing when you ask Him to help you through?”

Bristol Palin said she “obviously discourages” teen pregnancy and knows that plans she previously made for herself will now forever be changed. “Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with – this isn’t ideal. But I’m fortunate to have a supportive family which is dealing with this together. Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can’t imagine life without him now.”

Bristol begins her final semester of high school next week where she’ll get her last credit needed to graduate. She looks forward to continuing her record of good grades and high achievement. Levi is continuing his online high school work in addition to working as an electrical apprentice on the North Slope.

Bill McAllister, the governor’s office communications director, adds: "The governor's office previously declined to comment to honor the family's wishes that the event remain as private as possible. However, the high volume of press inquiries, along with some erroneous information that was published, prompted the governor to make a statement.


It's statements like these that renew my commitment to advancing Sarah Palin and our conservative cause in American politics-- we need her incredible compassion and authenticity in our country.
