The Four Stages of Conservative Female Abuse

There’s something about outspoken conservative women that drives the Left mad. - Michelle Malkin

It’s a peculiar pathology I’ve reported on for more than 15 years, both as a witness and a target. Thus, the onset of Palin Derangement Syndrome in the media, Democrat circles, and the cesspools of the blogosphere came as no surprise. They just can’t help themselves.

Liberals hold a special animus for constituencies they deem traitors. Minorities who identify as social and economic conservatives have left the plantation and sold out their people. Women who put an “R” by their name have abandoned their ovaries and betrayed their gender. As Republican officeholders and conservative public figures who are women have grown in number and visibility, the progression of Conservative Female Abuse has worsened. The astonishing vitriol and virulent hatred directed at GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the most severe manifestation to date....

President’s Message - September 2008

Summer is quickly coming to an end and the weather just keeps getting better! I really missed seeing you all in August but we needed to charge our batteries for the upcoming Presidential election. How about our choice for the first Republican Woman Vice President?
Is she hot or what? I am so impressed with her and can’t wait to work on the McCain/Palin campaign. Her acceptance speech was a home run! I am chairman for the Woman’s Coalition for
McCain and am looking for volunteers to phone bank and work for the ticket.

I am excited about this month’s speaker, Haider Agina. I also want to thank Frank Jager for addressing our group last month and was sorry that I had to miss the meeting because of my broken foot. Thanks and kudos to Margaret Stafford for stepping up to the plate.

Hope to see you all at the Red Lion on September 18th BY JOY FINLEY

SEPTEMBER 2008 - Your local Party is gearing up for another busy campaign season. I couldn’t be more excited! We have a great Republican Team! However, we have much to do to not only elect Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin to the White House, but we have much work to do elect our local candidates such as Jim Pell to the Assembly, Polly Endert and Frank Jager to Eureka City Council, and Supervisor Johanna Rodoni to the Board of Supervisors.

Last Thursday, the Party hosted a Convention Watching party to watch Senator McCain give his acceptance speech; we had a great turnout. There are more events on the horizon, including debate watching parties as the debates between the presidential and vice presidential candidates
happen. Please watch your mailbox and inbox for more information.

We will begin our calling this week and walking precincts next week. We will also need
volunteers to help staff our headquarters. WE NEED YOUR HELP in these endeavors—your country and your county depend on you!

Please call me at 707-227-6562 to volunteer and for any other information. Thank you for your support of your local Party activities and our Republican candidates; it is greatly appreciated.

CHAPLAIN’S CORNER - September 2008

How do you define victory? When we scan the news, we see stories about sport teams experiencing victory. We read about victories in battles that take place in our court rooms across America. We are encouraged when we read of victories over the war against terrorism.

What about victory for the Christian believer? In Psalms 44, we are reminded that God has always provided a way of victory for His people. He provided for the defeat of evil by sending his son to bring us the ultimate victory.

It is discouraging for us as Republicans to experience election defeats, especially on the local scene, but let us all remain encouraged and steadfast in the knowledge that good will triumph over evil in the end in God’s good time. BY VEE SORENSON


From LTG Bill Ginn, USAF Ret.
Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10,
Sec. 171: 'During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present --
except those in uniform -- are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. '

"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides," Obama said. "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it."

"I don't want to be perceived as taking sides" ???????

For the President, there isno other side!!


A funny thing happened on the way home from the convention in that the media’s darling, Barack Obama, commented that he had been so falsely targeted by Sarah Palin, the newly nominated vice-presidential candidate for the Republican Party.

A polar bear in high heels came in off the tundra to call Obama’s hand on just a few of the many issues that the media has repeatedly given him a free ride on for all these many months.

There is certainly fine irony in Obama’s criticism of Palin’s convention speech. Many media
members gave him fat thumbs up on his address in Denver last week. He compared himself to giving a John F. Kennedy speech. I attended John F. Kennedy’s convention address in Los Angeles and to repeat a famous quote on the topic, “Obama is no John Kennedy.” Kennedy was for limited government, strong no nonsense national defense, and low taxes. He absolutely rejected the concepts of the Marxist redistribution of wealth so advocated and guaranteed by Obama.

Did they really listen to the promises made by Obama? He claims his government will provide for all of us the same level of elite medical care that he is given as a senator. Further everyone will have a good job, everyone can go to college, all schools will have high caliber teachers, everyone will drive less and enjoy it more, and there won’t be a cotton picking problem this Utopian wonderland won’t solve because the wealthy will pay all the taxes and the rest of us will get a free ride.

In the brass tacks memory of Ronald Reagan—Tear down those Grecian pillars, get a grip on reality, and pity those who believe all these promises of everything for nothing.

Roger Rodoni, in November 2004, on the game of politics and the use of anonymously funded attack ads. “In politics we’re dealing with power. And people get quite desperate about that, and they
will do desperate things, say desperate things...Personally I give the electorate credit. I think people are intelligent enough to figure it out.”

Justice William O’Douglas: ”Those in power need checks and restraints lest they come to identify the common good for their own tastes and desires, and their continuation in office as essential to the preservation of the nation.”


Thank goodness, Senator McCain had the good foresight to select Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate! Sarah is a breath of fresh air we haven’t enjoyed since Ronald Reagan! I predict the McCain/Palin ticket will win and that the Republicans will put the first
woman in the White House, in the next four or eight years from now! And she will be a traditional woman…you know, one who loves her husband, children, and country!

It didn’t take long for the dems to begin savage attacks and then whine that her acceptance speech was mean-spirited! What a hoot! Bring it on, bring it on! The more they attack, the higher the McCain/Palin poll points climb!

The funniest charge is that Sarah is too inexperienced to be vice president. WRONG!

She has more under her belt as mayor and governor than Obama and Biden combined! Obama’s rationalization that he has “more executive experience” by running for president for the
past two years is hilarious! Somehow, the fact that all he has accomplished in the Senate is to
vote “present” time after time escapes him! Sarah’s comment that being a community organizer is sorta like being a mayor, only a mayor actually has responsibilities!

My 8th through 11th graders will be watching the debates and recording there opinions on the candidates’ answers. I made the same assignments four years ago and was surprised at the depth of understanding my students expressed in their responses. The additional benefit was that their parents sat down and watched the debates also. Most commented that they would not have watched had their students not been required to do so!

As far as Obama’s executive experience…actually, having been president of Eureka Republican Women Federated for a full year…I have more executive experience than he. SHERYL FEARRIEN
