Hunting is not only a sport or a way to get dinner on your plate–it can bring peace and fulfillment to one’s life, create jobs, and even help feed the hungry. That was the message of the latest episode of Amazing America with Sarah Palin on Sportsman Channel.

This exceptional installment of the program featured the dynamic Georgia Pellegrini showcasing her talents in the field and in the kitchen, plus an exclusive tour of Cinnamon Creek Ranch, one of America’s largest wild game processing facilities.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin opened the show by saying “The best way to know where your meat comes from is to kill it yourself.” True. But, she also admitted that most of us may not always have the time for a big hunting trip.
So, Palin dispatched field host Tara Conner to Austin, Texas, to meet up with the remarkable Pellegrini, the modern-day pioneer who left a cushy job in investment banking for a life of hunting.
Pellegrini bolted from Lehman Brothers and went to culinary school. Now she is a super chef who knows how to live off the land. After some practice rounds on clay targets, Pellegrini takes Conner dove hunting. Pellegrini tells Conner that dove hunting is social hunting and she promises to make Conner a convert to the taste of the birds known as “flying livers.”
It wasn’t difficult. After both women blasted some doves, they went back to Pellegrini’s home to cook them. The dove rolls included bacon, goat cheese, and thyme for a little kick. Conner liked her’s so much she even took home another one in a doggie bag. Pellegrini revealed if you can’t bag any doves on a given day, chicken or quail from the grocery store works in a pinch.
Pellegrini contends that in a day and age when kids “know how to use an iPhone but can’t peel a carrot,” it is vital that we show people that wild game can be accessible. She wants young women to know it’s a good thing and relatively easy to be a modern pioneer. Her amazing biography speaks for itself, but the fact that she left excel spread sheets and big paychecks behind for doing what she loves is the real testimony.
Georgia’s message of modern pioneerism is so empowering to women everywhere,” said Palin. “We don’t need to rely on men or government or society’s institutions for our basic survival. We can do it on our own terms. That’s the definition of true freedom.”
Later in the show field host Jerry Carroll paid a visit to Cinnamon Creek Ranch, a wild game processing facility in Roanoke, Texas. Carroll was hooked pretty quickly. The impressive facility produces about fifty products from steaks to meatloaf to hamburgers.
They’re known for their sausages too and Carroll even got to try his hand at making some sausage himself from deer. Carroll’s senses were all on overdrive. He couldn’t get enough of the aroma of the smoke houses on site. Eventually he also got to taste test some jerky and other products. After a full day in “meat paradise,” Carroll stopped by the Cinnamon Creek Ranch archery center. Home of about 13-hundred bows, Carroll took a stab at archery skeet. After a few misses, Carroll exclaimed it’s “much harder than it looks!” But, he persevered and eventually connected.
While Cinnamon Creek Ranch certainly makes some tasty treats, they also give back in a big way. The staff regularly partners with Hunters for the Hungry, a group that feeds the needy. Carroll delivered meat to Hunters for the Hungry, clearly the most rewarding part of his big day.
Hunting is much more than just a fun way to enjoy the great outdoors. That’s the overwhelming theme of the latest Amazing America with Sarah Palin. Hunting can change lives. Hunting can help others. Georgia Pellegrini and Cinnamon Creek Ranch prove this.
Palin urges all Americans to follow their lead. “Go hunting for what makes us truly happy,” Palin said.

Review:Analysts Say Palin Has What it Takes For 2016 "

From Conservatives4Palin

Boston Herald: Analysts Say Palin Has What it Takes For 2016 Run, Updated: Check Out Today’s Front Page!

Over at the Boston Herald, political analysts weighed in on a potential Palin-run for the White House.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s announcement that she’s “seriously interested” in running for president in 2016 could shake up the GOP field, say strategists, who point to the former vice presidential hopeful’s strong base, fundraising ability and star power.
“You’ve got to take her seriously because she can raise a lot of money, she has a big following and she has been through a national campaign, which is important to be competitive in a presidential primary,” Republican strategist Chris Brown told the Herald. “I think she really changes the field and she has the potential to hurt a lot of candidates — especially Tea Party conservatives.”
Former Alabama GOP Chairman Marty Connors said Palin “has built a career around being underestimated.”
“I would immediately put her in as a top- or mid-tier candidate if she decides to run,” Connors said.
[S]he has a built-in constituency and so she wouldn’t have to raise the money that some of the other candidates would and I think she’d be an exciting candidate that a lot of people would rally around.”
But of course, a Democratic strategist weighed in with some of the stalest talking points:
“I think that any Democrat you’d talk to would be delighted to have Sarah Palin run for president,” [Matt] Bennett said. “It would drag the Republican field back toward the freak show that they exhibited in 2012 … They had Mitt Romney and a couple other candidates who were credible but for the most part they were either too extreme or just bizarre — and Sarah Palin falls into both of those categories … She has thoroughly erased any credibility she earned by being chosen by (U.S. Sen. John) McCain for his ticket by her behavior since.”
Of course Mr. Bennett can’t describe the behavior he’s talking about.    Perhaps the "extreme" idea of balancing our budget.  Maybe living within our means is considered "bizarre" to a "strategist" who’s paid to defend the true "bizarre" and "extreme" behavior of the Obama Administration.  How about Hillary’s "bizarre" interview with Dianne Sawyer on Benghazi?
Further, he seems to forget that Democrats used similar talking points in 2012.  They portrayed Governor Palin and other Tea Party candidates as easy material for Democrats.  The GOP bought into that thinking and ran Mitt Romney.  We lost.  (There’s your sign, GOP!)
Commonsense Americans are tired of being called extreme for believing in liberty, the Constitution, and common sense (not to mention also being tired of a president "extreme" enough to stomp all over these things at every turn).
Also at the Boston HeraldAdriana Cohen explains why Governor Palin is perfect to take on Hillary and the importance of the GOP embracing a strong conservative woman for president.
The GOP needs women on the ticket for many reasons, not least because it steals the Democratic Party’s thunder. They want to be the “first” at breaking cultural barriers and glass ceilings. With Hillary Clinton expected to be their front-runner in 2016, they’ll use her gender as a tactic to gin up support from their base — especially female voters.
I can already see Emily’s List pushing out emails nationwide saying, “Let’s make history by electing the first female president of the United States.”
Regarding Hillary, Cohen says:
If you’re a female leader on the Democratic ticket, you’re a “hero” regardless of how many times you put your foot in your mouth, embarrass yourself or worse.
We haven’t forgotten Hillary Clinton saying that we should empathize with our enemies or that businesses and corporations don’t really create jobs. Both absurd statements that should disqualify any candidate — male or female — from any race, never mind the top slot.
But if you’re a female conservative? Watch out! Liberals will pounce and do everything they can to marginalize a conservative woman who runs for office no matter how educated, or talented, or accomplished she is. Liberals only “tolerate” others if they agree with them and follow their agenda.
The reality is Sarah Palin draws huge crowds at speaking engagements, has millions of social media followers and just as many supporters across the nation.
Hillary Clinton has been giving speeches to half-filled rooms.
Both articles are loaded with common sense.  I encourage you to read them here and here.

Fair And Balanced Media Articles On Governor Palin In Iowa

Amongst all the gross dross e.g. Politico 25 paragraphs trashing Gov.Palin in Iowa.Where does abject bias get submerged under real journalism? Not with him;

there were actually some fair and balanced articles on Governor Palin at The Iowa Freedom Summit and her announcement that she was interested in running for president in 2016

Kudos to these real journalists:

LLoyd Marcus at American Thinker;

Sarah Palin Too Toxic for 2016?  LINK

Despite the Left's best efforts to humiliate and destroy her, Palin has hung tough, remaining faithful to the mission of the Tea Party; the preservation of our freedom, liberty and culture -- traditional conservative principles and values; God, family and country.
And yet, there are those on our side who suggest that we kick Palin to the curb because she has become “too toxic.”
The field for 2016 is pretty crowded. I am not ready to select a candidate. However, if Palin throws her bonnet into the ring, my heart is with her 100%. We need a hero.


"Sarah Palin pumps up the crowd at Freedom Summit"

Updated:14 Inescapable Reasons Why Governor.Palin Is Running For President

Update:14 Inescapable Reasons Why Palin Is Running For President.


Her Mother, Sally Heath, clearly wants her to run (unlike Jeb's Mother who said no, then possibly, and Mitts wife who seems against the idea). For Mrs. Heath to post this so near to the "declaring season" surely must have some family background. 

If not, then psychologically as Governor Palin weighs everything up knowing that she has family support is a tick in the "run" box. For Governor Palin to post it in her widely followed Facebook page is something.if she had not posted it that would be something else.

Ha! Believe it or not I received this from... my mom!


 Palin's schedule for January includes Iowa this week at what is considered the first"cattle call' for prospective 2016 candidates. Palin will be the headliner

Iowa! Can't wait to be back next weekend. We looked back at pictures of our many fun, diverse adventures in the Hawkeye State over the years and wanted to share some here. 

Thank you to Citizens United and your courageous, selfless Congressman Steve King for putting together this awesome Freedom Summit. I look forward to joining you and our new and old Iowa friends to forge the future path – bright and successful – of our party and more importantly our country! If you can't make it to Iowa, you can watch the Freedom Summit live here:


 A serious grassroots campaign group "The Earthquake Group" (The Political Earthquake PAC) has set up a website at Facebook is fundraising and has put up a significant billboards for Governor Palin's Iowa visit. 

The website for the Political EarthquakePAC is website with information about Sarah is

Would they do this without some indication, from somewhere, that their efforts will not be in vain? Either way, the fact that grassroots organizations are in place or ready to go might be taken on board by Palin as she look s to the immediate future.


The key primary Palmetto state South Carolina received a lot of Palin's attention.

And although she couldn't' make the Tea Party event in Myrtle Beach South Carolina she made a highly professional video which was shown there and she indicated she will be in the state

"Sold Out in South Carolina! Overflow crowds of independent tea party Americans packed Myrtle Beach, SC today to gather, prepare and look forward to 2016. Thank you to the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition for your invite. I bet it was much warmer there than it was here in Alaska! Congratulations on a great convention and I hope to see you soon!
- Sarah Palin "


 Governor Palin's immediate schedule allows for venues where a momentous announcement could be made. At the very least, at the end of this immediate schedule, her profile will be even higher than it is now(which seems hardly possible given the massive media interest in her visit to Las Vegas)

especially after her being invited to address to Cambridge University (schedule conflict precluded)

Governor Sarah Palin Headed to Iowa


JANUARY 22, 2015



Time is running out. 

As I wrote in  LINK

"Palin To Put Supporters And Haters Out Of "Will She Run" Misery By July?"

The first debates are scheduled for August. If Palin has not declared by then it would seem unlikely that,as the declared candidates debate on nationwide TV, she could declare after that date.

# 7 

CPAC (Feb 25-28). 

 Governor Palin being invited set off another media frenzy and,a she did in 2008 she delivered an outstandign speech which destroyed the media's meme.


She didn't say yes-she didn't say no she didn't say stop she didn't say she'd go.

In nearly every interview in the last month Governor Palin has not ruled out running.

"Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, indicated she might run for president in a conversation with an ABC News reporter at a soup kitchen on Thursday.
“Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” Palin said."

advises the Washington Post's Robert Costa (no friend of Palin's "She struggles on diminished" he wrote last year)

“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin said, when asked to clarify her thinking about a possible presidential bid."
Palin said, 

“It is a significant step, of course, for anyone to publicly announce that they’re interested. Who wouldn’t be interested? Who wouldn’t be interested when they have been blessed with opportunities to speak about what is important to this country and for this country?”

#9. No third party run.

After considerable speculation, after Speaker Boehner was reflected which many on the right saw a a "betrayal of the mid-terms mandate that Governor Palin might head a third party she has shown no interest whatsoever recently-quite the contrary in fact 


The subtle sign?

Whilst continuing to "go rogue" and hold the GOP to account if they stray from the 2014 mid term mandate e.g. 

"Sarah Palin on New GOP Majority: ‘It’s Not Just the New England Patriots Who Are Dealing with Deflated Balls’"

It is noticeable that she has taken pains on a number of occasions to include herself in the "big tent"-giving kudos to the GOP Establishment. This could be a strong signal that if she did run she would stay within bounds whilst keeping to her "rogue" nature. To me this is the strongest signal of any that she will run.

“That GOP leadership, that establishment, they've got to get their stuff together. I love what they believe in, I believe in it too."


 Do these 14 points lead to the conclusion that Palin will run for president? The weight of them leads me to conclude she will-we shall see, and shall see soon (see point #6)

#14; Governor Palin is wearing the red war dress from 2008 campaign for the Palin TV presentations

# 13. This tweet to the Iowa power broker Chuck Grassley;

Palin Tweeted. great talking w/u last night - look fwd to hitting the trail" 

#12 From Gov.Palin's Facebook page-pretty much seals the deal?

Iowa Freedom Summit:"Take that sign off the Oval Office, no women allowed".


#11. The 2008 key people are still in place plus some new advisers of note:

(Costa Reports Washington Post)
"Palin arrived in Iowa Friday alongside Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), one of her closest political allies, and Jason Recher, one of Palin’s longtime political advisers."

Which elicited this comment

"Jason Recher, FP expert who helped prep Sarah Palin for VP debates in 2008. Hmmm, seems like she has retained a few key people in her circles"

N.B. If Palin chooses not to run in 2016 but endorses a candidate, especially "I wouldn't be here if not for Palin" Senator Cruz
enthusiastically then, in that person 
"Palinism in the presidency" comes into effect. Thus, in effect, Palin herself is the candidate and can be said to be running.
