Thanks to Pennsylvanians 4 Palin!
Slate’s Dave Weigel posted that Stephen Bannon’s documentary “The Undefeated” on Sarah Palin will be released on July 15. The release of this movie starts in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. From there, it will trickle down to other key states.
Let’s be honest; this information has been out ever since we found out about the documentary and it definitely has flipped upside down the Republican elites and liberals alike. Bannon is making interview rounds, promoting the documentary and answering over and over why he felt compelled to turn several short documentaries in a two-hour movie.
Tomorrow we will see a statement from a “major theater chain” that is set to announce a nationwide distribution. If my gut is right, “The Undefeated” will get the movie trailer, followed quickly by the movie itself about two weeks later, and outside I will see a separate marquee sign with title, date and times. Sweet!
Andy Barr from POLITICO wrote that the movie director has also retail plans for “The Undefeated,” where Wal-Mart could be key. I will not post snippets of his piece because it does reek of POLITICO material; go ahead and read it for yourself. My conclusion: It’s very encouraging to see the positive feedback from several people that have seen it, the buzz that is generating within the political circles and the Internet. Positive or negative, the reality is that there is a movie about Sarah Palin; that this movie attempts to clear the air about events in the past that have tarnished her image while at the same time, show everybody that she can run a country.

This time Hollywood has taken notice of Governor Palin, and so far I don’t know how close the script will be based on the book, “Game Change” which covered the 2008 elections. “Game Change” was not 100% accurate with information about the campaign, as claimed by Palin.
So far, here are the details:
Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore will portray the former Alaska governor in the project, which will chronicle Palin’s burst into the national scene as a surprise vice presidential candidate in 2008. Directing Game Change is Jay Roach, director of the Meet the Parents movies as well as the HBO film Recount, which examined the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election with a focus on the Florida recount.
Game Change is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book about the 2008 presidential elections and follows John McCain’s campaign from his selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed Recount, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.
As soon as more information starts trickling in, I will post more details. Stay tuned.

“You know, in the words of Bill Clinton, I feel her pain, you know?” Steele said in an interview on “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airing this weekend on Bloomberg Television. “My goal — and I know Sarah’s goal has been — let’s take the party and put it on the streets.”
He also said:
“Put your name next to your quote and then have a conversation with Sarah Palin. Until then, leave it alone,” Steele said. “You know all this kind of dissension and, you know, frustration within the party is not doing anything to get Republicans elected tomorrow. So until we get that job done, let’s not worry about 2012.”
It bears repeating: Death threats against Sarah Palin are at an all-time high (via C4P). Will it take someone being wounded (or worse, killed) to defend Governor Palin and/or any member of her family? I thought that she is still a Republican.

Twitter was all abuzz about the memorial service held in Tucson, Arizona. All this time, the media did not stop with this buzz; that the President was preparing his speech, and for hours on end when I thought he was “done” with it, he wasn’t. FOX News and other media outlets kept the pressure on; the expectations were high, while the status of the patients were still coming in.
These were tough matters to address on that speech, and to do so appropriately. He had to follow President Clinton‘s speech after the Oklahoma City bombing, and George W. Bush after 9/11. So President Obama had big shoes to fill. It was going to be a memorial service for those who lost their lives on the Safeway in Tucson, Arizona. At least that’s what we were told.
I knew it would be tricky, precisely because of this odd balance. But I knew that of all people, Obama could pull this off very easy. What I didn’t expect were the T-shirts, the concession stands, and the strange blessing of the Native American (which by experience, it is not up to par with tribes I know.) Perhaps Native American tribes in the North conduct their blessings differently.
Folks on Twitter were puzzled at the musical scores for the evening: The crowd cheering for everybody that was called onstage, even members of the Obama administration were cheered at when they read quotes from the Holy Bible. In my opinion, the only one that did deserve the stand-up ovation was the real hero that helped Congresswoman Giffords, Daniel Hernández.
Hence the tricky part: Was it supposed to be sober? Was it supposed to be a celebration of life? It felt like neither. President Obama’s speech was good, especially towards the end. But unfortunately the cheering, applause, whistlings and “woo-hoo’s” were a big distraction. People that were in their vehicles when the memorial service started got on Twitter and wrote that they were confused, because it sounded just like a college game or an event specific to the university.
I honestly believe President Obama was surprised at his surroundings. Unfortunately, it turned out to be more of a political rally rather than a memorial service. I was very happy when Obama announced that Congresswoman Giffords opened her eyes, but Obama didn’t have to say multiple times, like a preacher would. That’s when the “tone and rhetoric” took a dive. There were people right on the front rows, directly affected by this tragedy and they were weeping. They were serious, and thoughtful.
The crowd at thee McKale Arena at the University of Arizona should have taken notice of this, the University’s administration could have handled this differently, and President Obama should have addressed the crowd about the noise and call for respect for the deceased and wounded, restrain himself from the cult following. What do I mean by that?
The nickname “Healer In Chief” that MSNBC and the New York Times used as a past campaign “uniter” and in this case, the lie that he and only he somewhat had ”Gaby” open her eyes for the first time.

Per my earlier post, I read carefully all the past events that Jews went through by Catholic persecution and later as a useful tool for Hitler to make his case against them. The Jewish community, Israel as a country have gone through enough times and suffering; from hangings, to starvation and torture.
As a Catholic I feel ashamed by ignorance and prosecution that still goes on today from several directions. As Governor Palin states, I stand by Israel, Bibi Netanyahu and acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The past is gone; now we are living the early stages of the 21st Century and the hatred and bigotry haven’t stopped since Jesus Christ’s own sacrifice for all of us.
It is incredibly childish, distasteful and full of hatred-I dare say towards Jews, who will see this an either an attack, or an opportunity. If they decide to choose to “cast the first stone” and make statements against Governor Palin, liberals will gladly accept as part of their goal of Governor Palin’s political destruction. Liberals seek to bring back a myth, which is now used as a metaphor. After all, liberals love to brag that Palin “was the one behind the trigger,” and not Jared Loughner. Therefore, Palin has blood on her hands by proxy.
Liberals have scrubbed off online material that may be compromising to them of extreme hatred towards Congresswoman Griffin and have been on the offensive and their extreme hatred continues to this day.
Personally, I believe it’s time to call on those on the GOP to task to stand side to side of Governor Palin, and later on the winners of their districts and states that Palin helped, campaigned for, and donated to them this past November.
It’s on time like these that you know who your friends really are. Unfortunately, that has been the family’s problem since 2008.

Let me introduce to you one person I used to respect, when I lived in Puerto Rico – until he introduced a bill to repeal the term limits for US Presidents, so we’d have another Roosevelt in the White House. He’s one of the “pack of three” that watch over whatever happens in Puerto Rico, regardless of his constituents~who, I have to say, are the real Newyorricans.
His name is José Serrano, and of course (D-NY).
This is one issue thata Tea Partiers, Republicans, Fiscal Conservatives, et.al, are NOT watching at all. If we’ll be shoved with a bill down our throats, with Congress majority I would not be surprised AT ALL if his bill is looked into.
Snopes, trying to be fair and balanced, does not do any good to ensure that this bill is repealed, deleted, scratched, shredded, etc. It’s still around from what I see, and that won’t make us feel any easier. At least Snopes gives us the goodies on who has proposed the same crap – Three Democrats and three Republicans.
My problem here, of course, is Obama and his constitutional disses. Obama is quick or slowly (depends how you look at it) car companies, banks, student loans, messing up our healthcare and the forecast so far is amnesty for illegal immigrants. My Gaydar is tilting wildly to the right, and of course this will be endorsed on both sides of the isle.
Please spread the word, because nothing surprises me anymore.
