Governor Palin posted the following Easter message via Facebook:
Easter is the celebration of what hope really means. In Jesus’ triumph over death through His resurrection, we believe that death was defeated and hope became the expectation of eternal life with God.
Hope is the great driving force in many of our lives, and it has been the driving force in our country’s history. America has always had a strong sense that God’s providence is abundant, that no challenge can ever be too great and no enemy too strong. It was this hope that inspired us to carve a nation out of the wilderness, to appreciate opportunities to responsibly utilize nature’s resources, to engineer skyscrapers towering over our gleaming cities, and to fly to the moon.
As a country and as individuals, we can always have true hope to guide us. Our best days remain ahead of us. And working together we will leave this country to our children a better place than we received it from our parents.
On this blessed day let’s remember our Lord’s sacrifice that led to the Resurrection; and from the whole Palin family, have a wonderful Easter!
- Sarah Palin

The Japan earthquake version of the tool currently lists about 5,500 records, but the number is rising quickly as news about the catastrophe spreads around the world. Although the tool can be useful for finding information about a friend or a loved one, Google warns users that it doesn’t review or verify the accuracy of the data. Furthermore, all data entered will be available to the public, as well as viewable and usable by everyone.
Google’s Crisis Center also shows a map of the earthquake, the latest related news and lists link to warning centers, disaster bulletin boards, and train and blackout information.
The Google Crisis Center is available here, but it also shows up on top of searches for “Japan earthquake” and similar phrases. During these times of disaster, it’s good to see Google taking swift action and leveraging its vastly popular search engine to help people cope and find information.

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.

We have watched Governor Palin in awe at her strength, her husband and sidekick Todd show so much faith, positivism and smart politics; but overall, great restraint while they hold nothing back. Palinistas often post her tweets and Facebook notes, where she can get her point across to the whole world, but on a very down-to-earth basis.
We know the Palins are true Christian, they believe in our Savior Jesus Christ, and do pray for guidance, support and for families in need. I bought a little black book, called “Red Letters”, by Tom Davis. This gentleman has taken the unusual approach of calling to attention to all of us to read those “red letters” that appear on the New Testament, which are words of Jesus Christ. We need compassion, love for those who are ill, poor and in need. This does not necessarily mean that the readers are like Jesus Christ, but also those who receive health, some change for food and shelter and a cure for a disease. They are Jesus Christ as well!
There’s more to this book, but the book of Matthew, 5:44-45, caught my attention so much that I marked the page to put a note here. This is the best of Sarah Palin’s character, persona, and aside from the North Star, this is what she looks to-Jesus Christ:
“I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves”.
How is it possible for us that do believe in salvation, that live with compassion for the needy (example: Haiti) and give the best of us still get battered, attacked and still keep it up? Positive, energetic, and gain continued support from us that believe the same? Vengeance and retaliation are not options. Not Christian options, not Christ-like options.
This is not an overnight change; on the contrary, it requires for us to be prepared, to let go of misconceptions, and of that “voice” inside us that tends to arrive to conclusions and not do our homework, see what we can do for only one person (or child) at a time. We have seen that the powerful words that Jesus Christ has done for one person; perhaps we should strive to start (or start over) and reach a full potential.
It’s all over Twitter, huge on Twitscoop. Obama has done it again. He’s backing up the “mosque” near Ground Zero.
Via Big Government:
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama on Friday forcefully endorsed building a mosque near ground zero, saying the country’s founding principles demanded no less.
“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” Obama said, weighing in for the first time on a controversy that has riven New York and the nation.
“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”
Obama made the comments at an annual dinner in the White House State Dining Room celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
Mediaite posted the video where Obama made these remarks:
The Advocate interviewed her because she had a “mini-prom” instead of the whole class prom, which was held in another location. Homosexuals and their supporters/advocates that are outraged by this situation are making their voices heard, and of course thousands of them are misjudging and/or attacking folks that believe different than them. Some turn it (or spin it) towards religion. Most of them use the analogy that here in America homosexuals would be “stoned to death” because of their sexual choices.
Nothing further from the truth. That happens in the Middle East, not here in the United States. Those of us that are respectful and know the basics of the US Constitution know that there is freedom of speech. It diminishes them to lash out in such a way to other folks that do not believe in their way of life, even if they don’t care or totally dislike it.
From a poster at HotAir:
<div class="comment byuser comment-author-jp1986um odd alt thread-odd
thread-alt depth-1″ id=”comment-3443556″> What I’ve learned by reading this thread on HA:
1. Its ok to discriminate against gay and lesbian people as a conservative because they choose their sexuality. This choice is usually on Wednesdays between 8am and 11am.
2. straight people only have sex with their wives for procreation, which means that Hawthorne/Redneck have never stuck his dick into any other female or had sex in a position other than missionary position.
3. No straight men have ever had anal sex with their wives.. Ever. It just doesn’t happen. And no straight guys ever watch porn because that violates some rule I forget where, but it does.
4. Only straight people ever go to heaven. Ever. Like only Baptists go to heaven ever. So only straight baptists who ever had one sexual partner ever, missionary position and only for procreation ever make it. I think that covers that one.
5. If you never went to your prom, you must be gay or something. OK not sure on that one, gotta review all 9 pages again.
6. Married men who come out late in life decided to turn gay because they obviously weren’t going to be good parents any longer and they woke up on a Wednesday and decided to turn gay. Never mind them probably hiding for a lifetime or something because of fear or being beaten up in a locker room when they were in HS. I mean, no one on HA would ever beat up a gay person simply because they didn’t have sex in the missionary position only for procreation purposes mind you! Would they? Redneck?
Some of this crap isn’t even a conservative value. Its religious value transformed into some pseudo-mantra repeated over and over. Some of you hurl stones, while ignoring the fact that its YOU who should be worried about your own self. Granted this dumb ditzy chick brought all this on herself, but this thread strayed from that a long time ago. It became a religious bashing of anyone who wasn’t EXACTLY like you. And you wonder why we lost elections? Why people got turned off by YOU? what a f*cking joke.
Limited govt interference.
Limited govt involvement.
More Personal freedoms.
More personal Liberties.
Greater personal responsibilities.
I see nothing in those basic tenents which shout that gay and lesbians are to be excluded and stoned to frickin death because you think you have all the damned answers.
Nice way to elevate yourself to God’s. I want no part of that.
<div class="comment byuser comment-author-proudpalinfan even thread-even
depth-1″ id=”comment-3443602″> 1) I cringe all the time when it will be my kids’ turn to become “popular” or not. Taylor Swift is the best example of a girl teased, shunned and cried home to her mom because of her loneliness, being shunned, and goals that nowadays she has accomplished and overcome with grace and happiness. I love her for that, and her talent.
Taylor Swift has made it known over and over again how sad she felt as a teen, especially the day where she phoned her “friends” to go to the mall with her. Because they answered that were “busy”, she went to the mall with her mom and they spotted all of them at one store. Taylor got incredibly hurt, cried and Mama Swift was sooo ticked off that her mom drove one hour to go to the best mall in PA, to make her feel better and shake those thoughts off.
BUT on this particular situation, I support the parents and their kids. I never went to a prom or had a prom, class was way too small for that. My oldest sis missed it b/c of early college situation, had to skip it and she wishes she’d gone, thinks about it to this day and she’s 50.
I think that this is some sort of “rite of passage” where Mr. PPF gave me some hints about it and it scared me quite a bit. Teens have enough pressure themselves as soon as they hit their ages all thru senior year, let alone that special evening.
I hope I can survive it with my two kids. I wish all parties involved the best, sincerely. IMHO she made a mistake of taking it to such a high level and involve the SEIU and other pro-gay organizations, just so she could have her way. She knew what she was getting into, and there are her consequences. Now for the rest of her life she will remember this evening and I betcha years later from now, she’ll wish she would have handled it differently.
2)You forgot the suicide part./s Hey, there’s one in almost every family, and each family handles it in different ways. It is not up to me to “cast stones” to them, because we live in America precisely, not in the Middle East. They’d be dead by now.
There are one or more posters here on HA that have come out, and we love them. At least I do. Notice in my previous post I did NOT brought out the religion factor. I respect every religion on my opinion of religious “development” and beliefs. With that I mean how content, satisfied and fulfilled in the religion everyone practices, as long as all of them look up to God, and Jesus at least.
Because I am Catholic I have my own views but when I pray, but I don’t pray for homosexuals for conversion. I don’t obsess over that. I pray for those who need it the most, especially PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS since I am so sure that’d be your rebuttal to me.
To continue and excel at leading their fellowship towards God, Jesus, etc. priests and religious need special strength and spiritual core BECAUSE OF THE CHOICE THEY MADE, therefore I pray for them. Leave it up to God to Judgment Day to deal with homosexuals. The evil one is the one you have to focus to, not to us.
So with all due respect, I read your opinion on this based on the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution. Your opinion matters, too. If for whatever reason your feelings are so strong because of comments on this thread, I suggest to move on to another political thread that will suit you better.
I believe that this situation is better handled with grace and class, so they see for themselves our point of view, at least most of us. I stand by my statements, and don’t take anything back. Of course I welcome your opinions, so let’s hear them out!
