Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin this morning debunked Obama’s claim to only have known about IRS corruption and targeting of conservative groups from watching the news. This article was originally published on Breitbart News.
As more information about the IRS scandal trickles out daily, the White House’s involvement is becoming clearer. Those of us who’ve been warning about the demise of freedom with Barack Obama’s efforts to “fundamentally transform” our great nation are about to witness some sad vindication. Will awakened Americans finally join us in saying “enough is enough”?
The president would like us to believe that he only learned about the IRS corruption from watching the news. But we recently learned that the White House was actively working with the IRS on how to roll out the story of this scandal. So, Mr. President, how can you have your staff work on the roll out of the biggest controversy since Watergate, and yet claim that you only heard about it by watching the news with the rest of us?
For the president to deny any knowledge of what was brewing and to claim to know nothing about the Benghazi cover-up or anything about anything White House-related lately, he’s either a liar or a hugely incompetent CEO. You decide.
Gov. Palin wrote about IRS officials pleading the Fifth to cover their hides and how the scandal goes beyond harassment. The IRS leaked confidential information to leftist reporters. Gov. Palin said the scandals are a hallmark of a bloated, over-reaching government that has become unaccountable for its actions.
Ed. Note: Also be on the lookout for a postal-mailed fund-raiser under Gov. Palin’s signature.
Dear SarahPAC Supporter,
You and I both know that bigger government is never a good answer to the problems we face. In fact, government interference is often the source of those problems. The heavy boot of big government stifles the innovation and imagination of hard working Americans across this great country of ours.
But when it comes to our healthcare and the healthcare of our families, more government is not just a burden—it is a disaster.
Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would make healthcare more affordable. But hard working Americans will be hit with the massive price tag of Obama’s signature legislation: Obamacare includes twenty-one tax increases that discourage new hiring by small businesses, inflate healthcare costs, and increase the financial burden on American families who are already struggling.
Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would decrease our national deficit. But even with revenue from one of the biggest tax increases in American history, Obamacare will put us more than $100 billion in the hole.
Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would make healthcare more accessible. But, adding insult to injury, Obamacare reduces healthcare choices for you and your family by forcing you to either purchase Obama-approved insurance that may include expensive and unnecessary services or pay a substantial extra tax to the IRS.
And it gets worse. No longer will you and your doctor be the only people in charge of making your healthcare decisions. Now the unelected, unaccountable Washington bureaucrats of HHS have the power to ration care for those who need it most through the Independent Payment Advisory Board.
Because of Obamacare’s massive increases in regulation and government interference, eighty-three percent of doctors surveyed are contemplating retiring within the next five years. Within the next two decades, Americans will face a doctor shortage in the hundreds of thousands.
WE MUST REPEAL OBAMACARE. In 2010, SarahPAC had the opportunity to help elect dozens of strong conservatives to fight for change in Washington, including conservative leaders like Marco Rubio, Allen West, and Renee Elmers. To defeat Harry Reid’s band of liberal Democrats and repeal Obamacare, we need to send reinforcements to Washington.
Already this election cycle SarahPAC has contributed to the primary victories of underdog conservative leaders like Ted Cruz of Texas and Deb Fischer of Nebraska.
The Palin effect is undeniable and couldn’t be possible without your ongoing support!
David Rouzer won his primary and is going on to fight a vulnerable eight-term Democrat, he told LaDonna Hale Curzon, Host and Executive Producer, Sarah Palin Radio in a recent interview. Rouzer’s polling numbers have tightened to a statistical dead heat, and with anti-incumbent moods running at a fever pitch, he could pull off an upset win. North Carolina is a swing state and more Republican wins there will decrease Obama’s chances of carrying the state in his November reelection bid.
Two Balanced Budgets without Tax Increases
Rouzer is a designated Young Gun by that National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).
He said he is running because of the federal debt and deficit. Rouzer has a record of writing two balanced budgets with no tax increase, while he served in the State Senate.
Opponent Supported Stimulus and has Deep Connections to Big Labor
Rouzer’s opponent, Mike McIntyre voted for Obama’s stimulus and is deeply connected with Big Labor. McIntyre is conservative “on social issues but not on bread and butter economic issues,” Rouzer said.
He out-raised McIntyre by $100,000 on individual donors. In contrast, McIntyre’s money comes from PACs and special interest groups. Rouzer said he has traveled throughout his district where most of his donations originate, and many constituents who have voted for McIntyre in the past are now supporting Rouzer, “because they know we have to reverse course.”
Rouzer said McIntyre is vulnerable “because he was never really challenged in the past” and his district having been re-drawn is different from what it had been prior. The district is more conservative and Rouzer already represents a portion of it in the State Senate.
Rouzer’s endorsements include: Jesse Helms’ wife Dorothy, small business people and local Tea Party groups. Curzon said that in her opinion Helms “was Tea Party before there was a Tea Party.” Rouzer has neither a Sarah Palin endorsement nor an American Grizzlies United (AGU) endorsement as this story goes to press.
Internal Polling: Dead Heat, and Leads on Favorable Opinion by 6%
His internal poll numbers indicate a statistical dead heat and in his internal polling of those who formed an opinion of both candidates, Rouzer leads 48-42.
He said his campaign has to raise more money to build brand awareness, adding that when people learn about Rouzer, they tend to support him.
Jobs, Economy, Government Over-Reach
Like nearly all candidates interviewed by either Curzon or Scholla, Rouzer said the most critical issues in district are jobs and the economy. “We can’t keep spending the way we’re spending.” Low taxes and less government interference mean more jobs. “The left thinks we can spend our way to prosperity,” he said.
As a State Senator, Rouzer said he fought to do away with rules and regulations “that put a stranglehold on small businesses” and will do the same in Washington. He described ObamaCare as being “all those choking regulations magnified.”
When asked what the first he would do if sworn in, Rouzer answered, “the first thing we need to do is repeal ObamaCare, and bring real reform to health care. Most problems in healthcare stem from too much government interference, and this is without ObamaCare.”
Rouzer wants Congressional oversight over federal agencies. “Any new rule or regulation should have to go back to Congress for approval before it can take effect,” he said.
This week on The Palin Radio Update with Kevin Scholla: A perfect ten! Sarah Palin has endorsed ten candidates in 2012 and all ten have appeared on SarahNET Radio! Today it’s Kirk Adams’ turn. Adams is running for the House in Arizona’s 5th District. Also, Governor Palin serves up red meat and barbecue at a Sarah Steelman event! Plus, Ted Cruz cruises to victory, Palin visits Deb Fischer and makes a stop in Iowa, and calling out Dick Cheney on another misfire. TUNE IN NOW to SarahNET Radio ON DEMAND!!!
Adams is one of only three US House of Representatives candidates that Gov. Palin has endorsed in 2012, for she has focused principally on the US Senate this election cycle. Jeff Flake, one of Gov. Palin’s recent Senatorial endorsements is vacating the seat Adams is now running for. Prior to being a US Representative, Adams was Arizona’s Speaker of the House in that state’s House of Representatives.
30,000 Calls to Voters – In One Day – On Palin Endorsement
Scholla and Adams said that only Gov. Palin takes on the establishment of both parties and Adams’ campaign represents that. “We are all Palin all the time,” Adams said. His campaign made over 30,000 phone calls to voters in district in one day, to tout the Gov. Palin endorsement. Adams said, the voters “responded very well” and that the endorsement puts campaign once written off back in the game.
Adams Fought ObamaCare as AZ Speaker….
While serving at the state level, Adams led the Arizona fight against ObamaCare, helping to spearhead state legislation against it, and joining the Goldwater Institute’s lawsuit. Adams had to fight a liberal Attorney General every step of the way on this and other issues.
“ObamaCare worst legislation in a generation. It permanetnly damages the Constitution and will bankrupt states implementing it,” if it is allowed to stay on the books he said.
Under Adams’ Speakership, the Arizona legislature passed SB-1070; took on Card Check; and fought to save the secret ballot in the work place. While Adams was speaker, he also was instrumental in passing a law requiring informed consent on abortion and when Planned Parenthood sued and won, Adams was instrumental in shutting down their abortion services in the state. The Arizona legislature also passed legislation preserving right to keep and bear arms, and on pension reform under Adams’ leadership.
From Free Fall to Surplus
Adams said that when he became speaker, Arizona had the worst deficit in country. “We were in a free fall, and still recovering from six years of a Janet Napolitano spending spree,” he said. “We passed a 30% reduction in spending and now have a surplus,” Adams said. Arizona has a balanced budget, while California still has a multi-billion dollar deficit. Adams said he “can take the same tough-minded leadership to Washington.”
Adams is a small business owner with 22 employees. “I sign both fronts and backs of checks, and I have to make sure expenditures don’t exceed revenue,” he said. “It’s great training for running for office…. we cannot afford to spend our children’s and grand-children’s money. We will have a less prosperous nation.”
Secure the Borders and Foster Legal Immigration
Adams said he supports legal immigration, but we must secure our borders first. “We know how to do it. We did it in San Diego and Yuma sectors. We must do it for the remainder. We have the methods but not will.” Along with SB-1070, Arizona also passed a law imposing sanctions on employers who hire illegal aliens.
Gov. Palin Seeks Patriots, Whether Incumbent or Outsider
Scholla observed that both Adams and Flake do not go along to get along. They are willing to take political risks for the right reasons. Adams was 35 and beat an establishment candidate twice his age when he became Arizona’s Speaker of the House. Adams said he believes that Gov. Palin sees both Jeff Flake and himself as bold leaders.
Scholla said Gov. Palin bases her endorsements in part on character and guts, whether the candidate be an incumbent or an outsider. She seeks great patriots.
Adams also invited listeners to email him at email@example.com if they are interested in phone banking for the campaign. He said any like-minded conservative throughout the entire nation is welcome to do so.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin yesterday afternoon stumped for US Senate candidate Sarah Steelman at the Berry Patch Farm at State Line and Cleveland, Missouri. Gov. Palin said that Steelman would rein in spending, cut the federal budget, repeal and replace ObamaCare and honor voters’ sacred trust. She described Steelman as a woman of courage. Following the speech, Gov. Palin, her husband Todd, and the candidate donned aprons and served barbecued food to every participant at the event.
