Skip to comments.Sarah Palin’s e-mails: ‘going rogue’ for life
Posted on 06/13/2011 10:57:33 PM PDT by fabrizio
June 13, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Washington Post and The New York Times are recruiting their readers to help their journalists sift through 13,000 newly released emails to find information that fits the caricature that Sarah Palin is an insane, megalomaniacal power-monger - the last person Americans want in the White House. Unfortunately for them, it looks like a bad political investment: determined to unmask a monster, theyre revealing her humanity.
In these emails, Palin is shown to be a mother, who also happens to be the governor of Alaska, and who lives the challenge (and joy) of being pro-life. They reveal the tender humanity of a mother who, faced with the devastating news that her son would be born with some difficulties, found the courage to embrace life and the faith to believe that God has a special purpose for every life.
Palins son Trig has Down syndrome. Ninety percent of these children are aborted by their mothers shortly after diagnosis: and little wonder, for doctors talk about Downs infants in terms of suffering, not the opportunity for joy. Many women choose abortion thinking that they are making a good parenting decision a painful choice that deprives their child of a miserable life.
Enter Sarah Palin and her emails as governor, reintroducing Americans to what pro-life truly means, to having confidence that God does not make mistakes, He gives only the best.
Kathryn Jean Lopez has posted one such email on National Review Onlines blog The Corner. Beyond politics, I imagine it (the e-mail) might be a real gift for some struggling with the emotion any parent faces with the news her child may have Down Syndrome or another challenging diagnosis, Lopez writes.
Everyone (Palin and non-Palin supporters alike) should take the less than five minutes needed to read it. Click here, read it, and then pass it on.
Its a letter to the Palin family (written by Palin of course) from Trigs Creator , Your Heavenly Father. While God explains that the news may seem unreal and sad and confusing, he promises them I only want the best for you, and I only give my best, and that Trig is a gift and a joy that he is entrusting to the Palin family.
Emails like this remind Americans of the remarkable, exciting woman they first met in September 2008, when GOP presidential candidate John McCain introduced her to the broader American public. And they also remind us why the political left hates her: shes a successful, attractive, empowered woman who lead a U.S. state, who is married, loves her husband, has five children, and is pro-life. She not only believes in pro-life, she lives it.
All Palins lived pro-life, pro-family, pro-woman values lie at root of Palin derangement syndrome, or Palinoia, a term coined by Wall Street Journal editor James Taranto. (See more here)
How telling that the reaction from one of Canadas lead obstetric doctors, Dr. Andre Lalonde, to Palins choice was alarm that other Canadian women would have the courage to follow her example.
Palin embodies everything pro-abortion feminists and their allies like Lalonde have said women cant do: to make an independent, empowered choice to accept life, however it comes, whatever the circumstances. Palin tells women that they can do it.
While the U.S. media dedicates its reporters and readers to the task of sifting for dirt on Palin, they are instead turning up gold. Tony Harnden has more about Alaskas Mama Grizzly in his American Way column for the UKs Sunday Telegraph, such as Palin removing alcohol from the governors mansion because she wanted to set a good example to her childrens friends and remove a source of temptation at parties.
Sounds like Palin is just a good mom, who happened to be governor. And millions of other good moms (a.k.a. voters) can connect with that.
SARAH = ‘We the PEOPLE’
Like Rush said, a garbage can full of email in print, they got nothing which only proves she’s not only vetted like no one in history - SHE’S A SAINT!
No emails and pix from Weiner!
“And they also remind us why the political left hates her: shes a successful, attractive, empowered woman who lead a U.S. state, who is married, loves her husband, has five children, and is pro-life. “
Hatred of virtue and strength? Hey! That’s a pretty good definition of evil.
“Hatred of virtue and strength? Hey! Thats a pretty good definition of evil.”
Pretty good definition of a typical Democrat;)
If Governor Palin should decide to run, she does have this advantage.
Sarah Palin, is the only candidate who has been thoroughly vetted with absolutely no stones left unturned in her public or private life, no matter how personal. This exhaustive vetting has been done relentlessly and without stint over a three year period by, Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angles Times, Time Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, Newsweek, Huffington Post, USA Today, Boston Globe, Politico, Miami Herald, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Boston Herald, ABC, CBS, CNN, HLN, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, Fox, also, by many other newspapers, magazines, and TV outlets, too numerous to list.
Barack Obama, is the only candidate who has been thoroughly vetted by, “NONE OF THE ABOVE,” not even remotely.
In the end our son didn't survive, but we never regretted our decision to have him and he was a happy and vibrant child who touched the heart of everyone with whom he came in contact.
This type of courage is why I support Palin and why so many of the Democrats and Rinos do not. They are evil and they hate those that embrace life and all that it gives them. They are cowards who are afraid to deal with the consequences of their actions. And they are most of all takers who take all they can and only give away other peoples goods, money and effort.
If what they really want to find is “an insane, megalomaniacal power-monger” they didn’t have to go to all this trouble.
They could have just taken off their liberal blinders and looked in the White House.
To the Sisters, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!):
I am blessing you with this surprise baby because I only want the best for you. Ive heard your prayers that this baby will be happy and healthy, and Ive answered them because I only want the best for you!
I heard your heart when you hinted that another boy would fit best in the Palin family, to round it out and complete that starting five line-up. Though another girl would be so nice, you didnt think you could ask for what you REALLY wanted, but I knew, so I gave you a boy because I only want the best for you!
Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be Trig, because its so fitting, with two Norse meanings: True and Brave Victory. You also have a Bristol Bay relative with that name, so I knew it would be best for you!
Then, I let Trigs mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it, and I even seemed to rush it along so she could wait until near the end to surprise you with the news that way Piper wouldnt have so long to wait and count down so many days just like Christmastime when you have to wait, impatiently, for that special day to finally open your gift? (Or the way the Palins look forward to birthday celebrations that go on for three, four days you all really like cake .) I know you, I knew youd be better off with just a short time to wait!
Then, finally, I let Trigs mom and dad find out before he was born that this little boy will truly be a GIFT. They were told in early tests that Trig may provide more challenges, and more joy, than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for. At first the news seemed unreal and sad and confusing . But I gave Trig s mom and dad lots of time to think about it because they needed lots of time to understand that everything will be OK, in fact, everything will be great, because I only want the best for you!
Ive given Trigs mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that. Ill give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trigs challenges, but I wont impose on you
I just need to know you want to receive my offer to be with all of you and help you everyday to make Trigs life a great one.
This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what really matters . The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you havent experienced yet. Hell show you what true, brave victory really means as those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells you is normal or perfect. You will grow and be blessed with greater understanding that will be born along with Trig.
Trig will be his dads little buddy and hell wear Carhartts while he learns to tinker in the garage. Hell love to be read to, hell want to play goalie, and hell steal his moms heart just like Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper did. And Trig will be the cuddly, innocent, mischievous, dependent little brother that his siblings have been waiting for in fact Trig will in some diagnostic ways always be a mischievous, dependent little brother, because I created him a bit different than a lot of babies born into this world today.
Every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed up world you live in down there on earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome. Doctors call it Downs Syndrome, and Downs kids have challenges, but can bring you much delight and more love than you can ever imagine! Just wait and see, let me prove this, because I only want the best for you!
Some of the rest of the world may not want him, but take comfort in that because the world will not compete for him. Take care of him and he will always be yours!
Trigs mom and dad dont want people to focus on the babys extra chromosome. Theyre human, so they havent known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new little Alaskan. Sarah and Todd want people to share in the joy of this gift Im giving to the Palin family, and the greater Alaska family. Many people wont understand and I understand that. Some will think Trig should not be allowed to be born because they fear a Downs child wont be considered perfect in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider perfect or even normal anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as perfect on t.v.? Have you noticed I make `em all shapes and sizes? Believe me ,, there is no perfect!)
Many people will express sympathy, but you dont want or need that, because Trig will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this.
I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!
I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book ! Look it up! You claim that you believe me now its time to live out that belief!
Please look to me as this new challenge and chapter of life unfolds in front of you. I promise to equip you. I wont give you anything you cant handle. I am answering your prayers. Trig cant wait to meet you. Im giving you ONLY THE BEST!
Trigs Creator , Your Heavenly Father
Is Michael Isikoff still holding out in an Alaska hotel ? Maybe NBC should “talk him in.”
That is a sermon in life.
This is what “Going Rogue” means: Sarah Palin is not a politician, UNLIKE ALL the other candidates being considered for a Presidential run.
I’m not very motivated to vote for ANY politician.
Isn’t that the truth? Very humbling.
