The Power of Palin.

Filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon recently previewed his newest film, The Undefeated, a documentary about Sarah Palin, conservative superstar and scourge of the left. Bannon (along with the fine folks at Citizens United) also made Fire From The Heartland, a movie that chronicles the contributions women have made to the conservative movement. The subject matter of his new film is sure to start a firestorm that will spread across the current political landscape.

The style of The Undefeated is similar to Fire From the Heartland, with news footage and personal photographs and video being interspersed with stock photos and vignettes. Gov. Palin herself is not interviewed for the film, but snippets from the audio version of her autobiography, Going Rogue, serve to clarify and expound upon several key developments in her life and time in the public eye. Many of her Alaskan colleagues and friends are interviewed, giving the viewer a better idea of what the pre-2008 Sarah Palin was like. And, as it turns out, she’s quite like the Sarah Palin of 2011: smart, determined and unpredictable.

The Undefeated is divided into three parts. Act I details Sarah Palin’s early life and her first forays into politics. We travel along with her as she runs for mayor of Wasilla and as she fights the GOP establishment in Alaska to become governor. The scene of her announcing her gubernatorial campaign from her kitchen in Wasilla is one that any grassroots activist can appreciate. Similarly, there is a scene relating how she relocated her inauguration from the traditional Juneau to the more sentimental choice of Fairbanks, indicating that she has been going rogue for a long while now.

Act II goes into great detail about the struggles and accomplishments of the Palin Administration. Turns out, Gov. Palin was (and is) well versed in energy and oil, budgets (she was not afraid to wield the line item veto!), and ethics reform. Special attention is paid to Palin’s role in facilitating the AGIA license, which brought a long-awaited gas pipeline to fruition. This portion of the film was heavy on the oil and gas issues, underscoring their importance to Alaska and Palin’s mastery of their intricacies.

Act III starts in August of 2008, the point where many of us came to know Sarah Palin as she joined John McCain on the GOP ticket. This is also the point in the film where we get to see the left dissolve into witlessness and vulgarity when faced with the possibility of a conservative woman becoming vice president. [Note: There will likely be two different versions of the movie released — one that is family-oriented and one that contains the obscene rhetoric of the left in all its glory.] It’s sad that revisiting these images is no longer shocking, as we have come to expect this of the left, particularly when it comes to their treatment of Sarah Palin and other prominent conservative women.

There is an interesting theory floated in this part of the film: The crowds that greeted Sarah Palin on the campaign trail in 2008 eventually morphed into the tea party movement of 2009. There is some merit to this observation, as certainly many an activist was born in the fall of 2008, including yours truly.

Another important facet of the third and final act is the coverage of Sarah Palin’s resignation as governor of Alaska in July of 2009. There has been much speculation about the reasons behind her decision and what, ultimately, will be the fallout. The Undefeated provides ample support for the idea that the seemingly endless barrage of junk ethic lawsuits filed against her left her no choice. Indeed, an underlying theme of the entire film is Sarah Palin’s devotion to Alaska, making the case that she resigned for the good of her beloved state. It may not have been the decision most politicians would have made, but Sarah Palin is most definitely not like most politicians.

The Undefeated will surely be a must-see for all Palin fans, who will enjoy reliving the events that brought her to national prominence.  Those who are not her biggest fans may be surprised at what they learn about the woman whose image the press has tried so hard to destroy (hint: she’s really, really normal). The media will, of course, dissect every second of the film looking for new ways to mock her, even as they zigzag around the country chasing her tour bus, hoping that she’ll stop to talk to them.

Love her or hate her, Sarah commands attention and leaves you guessing what she’ll do next. And that is the power of Palin.

Expert Analysis: Sarah Palin’s Writing Scores Higher Than That Of Most Educated AmericansBy Gary P JacksonOne of the biggest media failures in quite some time has been the spectacle of going through Sarah Palin’s e-mails from her time as Governor of Alaska.

The media was so overjoyed at what they perceived as an opportunity to find all kinds of juicy stories about corruption, incompetence, and so on, they dropped all pretense of being actual journalists, and begged readers to help them sort through the 24,000 some odd e-mails and reporting on “the dirt.”

I haven’t seen something blow up in someone’s face this bad since Diane Oughton was making bombs for Obama’s best buddy Bill Ayers!Instead of finding the incompetent boob our corrupt media had been telling their readers about for years, those going through Governor Palin’s e-mails found a solid CEO who worked long hours doing the people’s business.

They found a Governor who was incredibly intelligent, and unlike our current president, almost fanatical about making sure there was transparency in her government.The democrats, their corrupt media partners, and the GOP elites have assured us that Sarah Palin is stupid to the point of barely being able to tie her own shoe. They’ve also told us for years that her well written newspaper op-eds, and Facebook notes MUST have been written by someone else. So too her two NY Times best selling books .Well, thanks to the media’s zeal, yet another lie about Sarah Palin has been shot down.

From the NY Daily News:It turns out Palin’s writing skills are still better than most educated Americans. Global Language Monitor gave Palin’s emails a score of 8.2, which actually exceeds that of most chief execs. “She’s very concise. She gives clear orders. Her sentences and punctuations are logical,” said Paul Payack of GLS. “She has much more of a disciplined mind than she’s given credit for.”John Katzman, CEO of another company, 2tor, gave Palin a score of 8.5. He said the potential presidential candidate’s emails scored higher than his own, when based on the widely-used Flesch-Kincaid readability test.But what do the scores actually mean? Payack offered Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettyburg Address” and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech as points of comparison. They earned scores of 9.1 and 8.8, respectively. Hmm, being compared to fellow Republicans Abraham Lincoln and Dr Martin Luther King. That’s pretty heady stuff. You may have noticed the media’s interest in Governor Palin’s e-mails died almost as quickly as it was born.

Now you know why. It’s hard to sell someone as corrupt, inept, and stupid when every piece of evidence shows that not to be true..One thing about it, when she takes office in 2013, President Sarah Palin will be the most vetted President in our nation’s history. The exact opposite of Barack Obama!

The publication of the findings of the president’s National Commission on
Fiscal Responsibility and Reform was indeed, as the report was titled, “A Moment
of Truth.” The report shows we’re much closer to the budgetary breaking point
than previously assumed. The Medicare Trust Fund will be insolvent by 2017. As
early as 2025, federal revenue will barely be enough to pay for Social Security,
Medicare, Medicaid and interest on our national debt. With spending structurally
outpacing revenue, something clearly needs to be done to avert national
bankruptcy.

 

Speaking with WSJ’s Jerry Seib, Congressman Paul Ryan (R,
WI) insisted that the deal between Republicans and the White House on the Bush
Tax Cuts was not a second stimulus and that the agreement would promote growth
despite adding to the deficit. Read more here

The commission itself calculates that, even if all of its recommendations are
implemented, the federal budget will continue to balloon—to an estimated $5
trillion in 2020, from an already unprecedented $3.5 trillion today. The
commission makes only a limited effort to cut spending below the current trend
set by the Obama administration.

 

Among the few areas of spending it does single out for cuts is defense—the
one area where we shouldn’t be cutting corners at a time of war. Worst of all,
the commission’s proposals institutionalize the current administration’s new big
spending commitments, including ObamaCare. Not only does it leave ObamaCare
intact, but its proposals would lead to a public option being introduced by the
backdoor, with the chairmen’s report suggesting a second look at a
government-run health-care program if costs continue to soar.
