Down Syndrome 3-Pt Assassin, Mom on SarahNET Radio: Gov Palin made Dream Come True


Owen Groesser and his mom Kari Groesser are on The Palin Radio Update with Kevin Scholla! Owen, a Michigan eighth grader with Down Syndrome became an overnight sensation when he knocked down two three-pointers for his junior high basketball team. His feat landed him on SportsCenter and caught the attention of Governor Sarah Palin. Now, ESPN is doing a lengthy feature on Owen and he even got to meet his favorite Detroit Pistons up close and personal. Tune in to hear Owen’s inspiring story. Meantime, another young man with Down Syndrome is named Prom King in Alaska. Gov. Palin recognizes the newest Alaska Air National Guard members, joins Arizona Governor Jan Brewer in the fight against child abuse, and chides the media for more lies and some ridiculous claims about our children. Also, some spring snow hits Alaska, Governor Palin praises Kirsten Powers for writing about the Kermit Gosnell house of horrors, and questions the priorities of the Obama regime. As Willow Palin graduates, her proud mom offers some advice. Plus, Sarah Palin remembers Holocaust victims and one of her heroes, Margaret Thatcher. Steel Resolve, our weekly commentary with Sarah Steelman is featured as well.

Gov. Palin Cheers Owen Groesser

Back in January, Owen Groesser “converted on two long-range bombs” when he was pulled off the bench and brought into play. “Thanks to Gov. Palin and others the hashtag #GetOwenOnSportsCenter made the rounds and eventually, Owen was featured on ESPN.” The former Alaska Governor posted a Facebook Status Update cheering Groesser on January 24, followed by a complete video of Groesser’s two three-pointers.

The Detroit Pistons hosted Groesser; he took the court with head coach Lawrence Frank, sat in press row and much more. He is set for a second feature on ESPN, Scholla said. “How did it feel to play and to score?” he asked. “Good and fun,” Groesser said.

Coach Hall Makes First Dream Come True

“He was the actual manager of the basketball team,” Kari Groesser said. “One day I went to pick him up from practice and he walked to the car with the coach, and I’m thinking, ‘oh no! What did he do?’ They both had this grin on their faces and Coach Jeff Hall comes up and says, ‘hey, we want to suit up Owen for the last home game of the season. What do you think?’” She continued, “I’m thrilled, I’m excited, because I know for Owen that has been his dream. At our school, basketball is a cut sport. For him to be the manager is one thing. For him to put on the uniform and get out and play was certainly another.”

Gov. Palin Makes Impossible Dreams Become Reality

While Coach Hall made the first dream come true, Gov. Palin made many more a reality. Scholla asked, “What was your reaction to Sarah Palin recognizing your son?”

Kari Groesser said, “we couldn’t believe it. You know, the night that it happened, we went to the game. We had a surprise party to go to. So, literally, we dropped our kids off and said, ‘okay, get your homework done, take your showers, and get off to bed.’ My husband and I were at a restaurant and all of a sudden we started getting these text messages like, ‘this has gone viral,’ ‘he is going to be on the news,’ ‘he is going to be on SportsCenter,’ and my husband and I were kind of chuckling and laughing and going, ‘yeah, yeah, yeah — okay.’”

She continued, “Well, then all of a sudden we get home and there he was. He was on the local news and of course that night he was on SportsCenter, and again the next morning on SportsCenter and then when you figure it out and start talking…Sarah Palin and some of these sports figures had reached out, it just was crazy, and we just sat back in awe, kind of like, ‘is this really happening?’ It’s been a really great journey for Owen and for everybody.”

Groesser’s Night with the Pistons

Scholla asked Owen about his night at the Pistons game. “It was my night,” he said. Kari Groesser added, “I have to say, we showed up and they kind of took him away. He got to do everything the Pistons were doing. He was out on the court with them; he was throwing chest passes. He was with the team before the game; he walked onto the floor with the coach. He even sat with the team during the game and then even after the game, he went back into the locker room, so that was a young man’s dream come true.”

Inclusion, ESPN E:60

Scholla said Owen was good luck for the Pistons, having beat his favored Bulls that night, breaking an 18-game winning streak. “It was a great night,” Kari Groesser said twice. “They just embraced him. Since this has all happened our entire community has embraced him, and we are fortunate to be in a school system that has inclusion so, Owen has always been just one of the guys in every classroom. He has grown up with this community. It’s been great for everyone.”

She said ESPN is doing an E:60 segment on him. It will involve eight days of shooting and air at the end of April, possibly the beginning of May.

Owen is Simply Owen

Scholla asked “what has Owen meant to you and your family on this? He’s really brought people together it seems.” Owen has three sisters, one of whom is older. “They’re typical siblings. They have their good days and bad days,” his mother said. Owen is already well-known in the community even affectionately being called “mayor.” But Kari Groesser said “he walks a little taller and with more confidence now. He talks to everybody; he’s not a shy guy anymore, so in that respect this whole experience has been wonderful for him.”

Scholla quoted Piper Palin as being glad she “doesn’t have a ‘normal’ brother because it would be boring.” For his family and friends, Owen is simply Owen.

Owen Groesser: Basketball, Football, Wrestling, Track

“When I think back about Owen and all of his accomplishments, it’s just been a wonderful journey for him. He not only plays basketball, but he played on the football team,” has been on the wrestling team and is running track for the junior high Kari Groesser said. “He’s always been in sports, has always been very dynamic and athletic.” When raising Owen, Kari Groesser said she never thought of Owen as being “the son with special needs.” He’s always been the brother, he’s always been my son. She said she’s put him in situations that tested him — “I hate to say this — threw him to the wolves to see what he could do and he’s always thrived.”

Owen’s favorite basketball player is Brandon Knight, who plays for the Pistons. Second to basketball, track is Owen’s favorite sport.

Steve Kerr was one of Scholla’s favorite long-range shooters before he became an announcer, and Craig Hodges before him. Owen is his new favorite and he said he is partial to the three-point assassins.

Steel Resolve: The Republican Party’s Margaret Thatcher?

“Why don’t the Republicans have a Margaret Thatcher?” Steelman asked as she opened her weekly Steel Resolve segment. “This is a question I’ve pondered all week and I’m still not quite sure of the answer. It appears that she had three things going for her as a female conservative in a man’s world.” Steelman continued,

“First of all, intellectually she had a deep and cultivated understanding of why conservative principles work to the benefit of all. She didn’t pay lip service to her beliefs or use talking points to regurgitate the same old political rhetoric. She could stand in Parliament and easily defend conservatism against the arguments of the Labour Party as to why her policies would return England to prosperity and lift all citizens. She could easily communicate that to the public without becoming wobbly.”

“Secondly, she was empathetic and compassionate to people. Her understanding and caring about individuals was real and credible, partially because of her background from a working class family. Her father was a grocer who showed and taught her the value of hard work not just to get ahead or get a job, but because it enhanced her self-worth and self-respect. She understood how important that sense of fulfillment was to individuals.”

“Thirdly, she had an impressive, credentialed education, which for female politicians seems to be a prerequisite in order to be taken seriously. She received an undergraduate degree in chemistry from Oxford and eventually became a lawyer. In short — for a female conservative in the States to propel herself past the entrenched establishment Republicans to become a leader or President, she needs to learn the secrets of Margaret Thatcher’s success. Let’s go girls.”

Ed. Note: The Republicans do have their Margaret Thatcher or as we more commonly refer to her by analogy, Ronald Reagan. They just don’t want to recognize Her.

@AGUGrizzlies: Will @JaneFonda Appear in The #Hollywood Nerd Herd Part Deux?


Recently, 85-year-old Jane Fonda, the totally 100% patriotic and unabashedly pro-America entertainer was cast as Nancy Reagan in the upcoming agitprop movie The Butler.

Some Americans are not pleased with Lee Daniels’ interesting casting choice of the 85-year-old totally 100% patriotic, and unabashedly pro-America traitor entertainer Jane Fonda.

This outrage prompted the 85-year-old totally 100% pro America entertainer to tell a group of our selfless Veteran’s who were willing to lay down their lives for our/her freedom:


But why would Veterans be upset that the 85-year-old totally 100% patriotic entertainer be cast as Nancy Reagan?




Could it be…

Jane Fonda Communism


trea·son (noun)

/?triz?n/ Show Spelled [tree-zuh n] Show IPA

  1. the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
  2. a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
  3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

Maybe it is because of this?

“If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist. . . . I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.” – Jane Fonda


Americans have every right to be upset with the 85-year-old entertainer. We here at American Grizzlies United are offended too, however, we believe in redemption and would be more than happy to screen test 85-year-old Jane Fonda for a starring role in our sequel to:

American Grizzlies United Presents: The Hollywood Nerd Herd.


We are pleased to announce that “our people are talking to Kathy Griffin’s people“.

Hollywood Nerd Herd KATHY-255-X-150

“Our people are talking to Matt Damon’s people” too!

Hollywood Nerd Herd MATT-255-x-150

And guess what! “Our people are talking to Bill Maher’s people” too!

Hollywood Nerd Herd BILL-255-x-150

We are not sure if Ellen Barkin will be able to fit the grueling filming schedule into her incredibly busy and very intense schedule of starring roles that she is consistently being offered every single day.

Hollywood Nerd Herd ELLEN-255-x-150

No matter the outcome, we are certain that American Grizzlies United Presents: The Hollywood Nerd Herd Part Deux will be a huge critically acclaimed success!

Our work continues.

Gov. Palin: “We’ve forgotten what belongs on Page One.”


Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

“We’ve forgotten what belongs on Page One.”

Kudos to Democrat and fellow Alaskan Kirsten Powers for getting the important truth out there on this horrific story, and for USA Today for printing it. Sadly, but not surprisingly, the mainstream media has once again shirked their journalistic duty in exposing the truth behind this horrific procedure which Planned Parenthood tries to spin as untrue. As many in our party call for “social truces” and encourage candidates to stop talking about social issues, I’d remind them to heed the advice of Lady Thatcher: “This is no time to go wobbly.” If our country does not start to focus on returning to a culture that respects life, how can we ever expect to solve the growing problem of violence?

Gov. Palin to CNN: American viewers are smarter than you assume


Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

CNN: it’s no wonder your ratings still aren’t matching competitors. American viewers are smarter than you assume, and we simply want truth in reporting.

Please see the article linked below. Wolf Blitzer’s recent coverage of this story really was blisteringly dishonest. First, because he didn’t reach out to me or the SarahPAC staff for rebuttal. Second, because he failed to disclose the anti-tea party associations of the “architect” of this story whose organization is a competitor of my efforts to advance the candidacies of genuine grassroots conservatives – not those handpicked by the permanent political class. As the article explains, in my recent CPAC speech I gulped and denounced the consultants who engage in campaign hopping and have made a racket out of multi-million dollar failures each election cycle for themselves and their cronies. What a shame CNN continues to plug away in a floundering direction with reports like this. The shame is that they employ some top-notch reporters who no doubt believe in truth in journalism, but examples like this diminish the good reporters’ good efforts.

As a side note, I find it interesting that CNN recently disclosed that their old “Crossfire” show might hit their airwaves again. Wasn’t CNN among those who issued blistering criticism about the use of a “crossfire” icon in 2010 to represent political districts we wished to see represented by commonsense conservatives? CNN, among others, implied that using a “crossfire” icon (which was a tactic first employed by Democrats to illustrate political maps of districts they “targeted” to win) was inciting violence.

@DrGinaLoudon Infiltrates Pop Culture On #WifeSwap, Turns Hollywood Nerd Herd Golden Calf to Holy Cow


The Hollywood Nerd Herd is flipping out. Their once sacred cow (golden calf?) of Pop Culture domination is under attack. The Hollywood Nerd Herd‘s golden calf is going up in smoke, being ground to a pulp, and being shoved down their self righteous throat.

Guess what? They don’t like it.

Hour by hour The Hollywood Nerd Herd uses television and Pop Culture to it’s full capacity. On a daily basis our society and national narratives are shaped via Pop Culture through televisions profound, though often times subtle, political detail.

Pop Culture is upstream of politics. If the permanent political class within the Democrat Media Complex thinks Common Sense, Constitutional Americans are going to fall in line, and let them solely control the world of Pop Culture, they are in for a big surprise.

Many conservatives are now boldly infiltrating the world of Pop Culture. We are no longer afraid of being called:

RAAACIST, Crazy, Dumb, Homophobic, Dangerous, Mean

By infiltrating Pop Culture, Dr. Gina Loudon and her husband former state senator John Loudon recently turned The Hollywood Nerd Herd‘s Golden Calf into a Holy Cow.

The Loudon’s courageously threw themselves into the Lions Den by fearlessly appearing on an episode of ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap…It doesn’t stop there.

The Loudons

The Producers of Celebrity Wife Swap decided to pair up the Conservative Christian Loudon Family with…wait for it…a POLYAMOROUS FAMILY.

Yes you are reading this correctly. Dr. Gina Loudon and her husband John Loudon had to swap lives for one week with a harem family consisting of one husband and several wives.

Of course The Hollywood Nerd Herd and the LSM will try to portray The Loudon’s as an oddity (read: Crazy Christians). The Hollywood Nerd Herd is counting on most Americans not being able to see through clever editing tricks, and unseen footage. The Hollywood Nerd Herd thinks most Americans are stupid and easily manipulated.

It will be interesting to see how The Hollywood Nerd Herd attempts to sugar coat and condone polygamy to make the normal loving Loudon family into the crazy Christians.

ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap airs Thursday March 28.

Here is Doc G’s response to her experience on Pop Culture infiltration.

Our work continues.

@AGUGrizzlies: #NewOscarCategories For The #AcademyAwards Needed

On Sunday night the Hollywood Nerd Herd will venture out from their gilded perches and palaces. The Hollywood Nerd Herd will pass through the streets of the unwashed masses, warily stopping to modestly pose for photographers, while they humbly and reluctantly accept the clapping and cheering of their peasant fans who like most peasants (the same peasants who finance these lavish lifestyles by purchasing movie tickets and paying each month for cable tv) simply want a glimpse or nod of acknowledgement from these exclusive idols. These Superstars of The Hollywood Nerd Herd are role models, they are pillars of stability, who are possessed with grace, and shining examples of moral purity and obvious superiority.

The Hollywood Nerd Herd’s Michelle Obama Marie Antoinette-esque indulgent lifestyles often include: self cleaning paperless toilets (toilet paper is barbaric and kills trees – Sheryl Crow suggests regulating only one square per visit), surrogate mothers (full term pregnancy ruins your figure, or your filming schedule, or your already planned vacation), Manny‘s (Nannies are so 2011), life coaches, pet psychics, potty training specialists (one day boot camp available for extra lazy celebrity mothers), chai-yok vaginal steam baths (to relieve stress), garra rufu fish pedicures (think carnivorous piranhas nibbling on your feet), Demi Moore’s detoxifying leach therapy, Nightingale excretion (Tom Cruise’s favorite) or Sperm facials, and of course the Womb Room (“designed to lull guests into a state of relaxation comparable to the start of life itself”)

For one brief shining moment this evening the Hollywood Nerd Herd will cease lecturing us peasants about imaginary global warming, about paying our (but not their) fair share of taxes, about turning in our (but not their) guns (doesn’t Brangelina and others have armed security?). Instead of their usual soapbox lectures they will gather in an orgy of self congratulation. Tonights bacchanal ritual of praise and adulation will climax and hit the high spot by winning the ultimate coveted graven image – The Oscar.

Obviously our nomination notification for the critically acclaimed motion picture: American Grizzlies United Presents; The Hollywood Nerd Herd was lost in the mail by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the beyond efficient and very strong work ethic management of The United States Postal Service.

To level the playing field and make sure that everyone gets their fair share, American Grizzlies United would like to propose some new categories to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

For starters we propose that the art form of political theater should not be discriminated against. Discrimination is wrong.

Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and San Fran Nans Mini-me Debbie Wasserman Schultz all gave very convincing performances last year. (Remember, according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rules, in order to qualify for the coveted graven image the performace must have occured before December 31, 2012).


#NewOscarCategories: “Most lies told within a 90 second sound byte”

Nominees: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Ed Schultz, and Barack Hussein Obama.

#NewOscarCategories: “Best Liar”

Nominees: Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Sally Kohn, Stephanie Cutter, and Barack Hussein Obama.

#NewOscarCategories: “Most Convincing Lie”

Nominee (And Winner By Default): Barack Hussein Obama (President Obama’s deception skills for this #NewOscarCategories are so incredibly superior that we feel it would be unfair to add any other nominees – it might hurt their feelings)

Perhaps some of you have some #NewOscarCategories of your own. Feel free to share them on Twitter and with your friends.

The Hollywood Nerd Herd has a basic comtempt for the American people. The same American people who buy tickets to their movies, and pay monthly cable bills to watch them on tv. By buying these tickets and paying these monthly cable bills we give them the position to continually lecture us on how things out to be. The Hollywood Nerd Herds hollow, utopian, and increasingly authoritative rhetoric can and should be challenged. But it is up to us.

Our work continues.

@AGUGrizzlies: via @WhitneyPitcher Obama’s #Immigration Speech Cost Taxpayers $527 / Word

@AGUGrizzlies: via @WhitneyPitcher Obama’s #Immigration Speech Cost Taxpayers $527 / Word


NOTE: This post was written by AGU-IL State Coordinator Whitney Pitcher and originally published on Little Blog on The Prairie.

Yesterday, a study from the publicly funded University of Minnesota was released noting that Governor Sarah Palin was paid $15.85 per word during her time as a FoxNews contributor. Despite all of Governor Palin’s purported irrelevancy, this study generated stories at USA Today, the Washington Post, The New York Times, Yahoo! News, and Politico, among numerous other outlets.

Meanwhile, just today, President Obama flew from Washington D.C. to Las Vegas to give a speech on immigration reform. Per the Weekly Standard, his trip cost taxpayers a $1.6 million or $182,000 per hour of flight on Air Force One. According to the transcript at the Chicago Sun Times, President Obama’s immigration speech was 3,079 words and applause lines, meaning that President Obama’s speech cost the taxpayers just under $520 per word and applause. Including the applause lines is being generous to the President, as if those weren’t included, his speech would have cost taxpayers $527 per word. The transcript also notes that President Obama’s speech lasted 25 minutes. Using 2012 spending levels as a reference, the federal government spent $170 million during the President’s speech, at a rate of roughly $6.8 million per minute.

Those numbers won’t be found outside of the conservative blogosphere, however. The legacy media are more concerned with how much money a woman, who currently does hold publicly office made for appearing a privately owned television station, than they are with how much money the President’s junkets and astronomical spending are costing the taxpayers.

Silly Liberals Dead Wrong on Palin Demise


Ed. Note: The lies are continuing with Alinskyites continuing to claim that Fox News “fired” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin when the truth is she left of her own accord to broaden her reach as delineated by Kevin Scholla below and in False Stories Spread on Gov Palin’s Departure from Fox. Now, haters are obsessed with the “$15.85 cost per word” of Gov. Palin’s contract insinuating that she somehow bamboozled the network or that her pay was “excessive.” For three years, Fox News and Gov. Palin had a contract, the terms of which — including compensation — were negotiated and agreed to by both sides. That ends the whole “$15.85 per word” conversation right there.

By Kevin Scholla, PA State Coordinator
American Grizzlies United / Organize4Palin

For someone who is so irrelevant, so yesterday’s news, they sure as heck talk about her a lot. Ever since it was announced that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would not renew her contract with Fox News, the glib, celebratory comments have poured in. The Left wing blogosphere erupted. Mouth breathers in moms’ basements nationwide took to social media. Even the paid political hacks made sure to get their shots in. ‘Ding dong! The Mama Grizzly is dead!’ The only problem is they couldn’t be more wrong.

Just because countless liberals have a weird, visceral hatred for Sarah Palin, doesn’t mean they should incorporate falsehoods into their rants. We get it. You don’t like her. You apparently have an aversion to hardworking, honest, patriotic, Christian women. You have distaste for a daughter, wife, and mother who fought her way up the ranks from mayor to governor to vice presidential candidate, and did so without any special assistance from the establishment. Why these accomplishments would be frowned upon is a topic for another day. Although Dr. Melfi probably had an easier time dealing with Tony Soprano’s inner demons than any therapist who would dare delve in to the sick head of a Palin Derangement Syndrome sufferer. The point here is, when spewing your hate, at least be factual.

The false meme being thrown around since the Palin-Fox News split is that she was canned or let go. Some outlets are asking ‘Is Palin’s Career Over?’. Others have flat out called the race. They talk about a fading star and irrelevancy. Never has the much overused ‘LOL’ been more appropriate than right now. Saying Palin is irrelevant is like saying Casey Anthony is a good mom or Lance Armstrong is known mainly for his honesty. Those who push this narrative not only come off as total buffoons, but they should be first in line for the NFL’s enhanced concussion studies program. Clearly there is some sort of brain injury here.

Howard Kurtz wrote one particularly idiotic article titled ‘Sarah Palin’s fall from media stardom’. Kurtz is the host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources”. Talk about an oxymoron with the emphasis on the last two syllables. In the story, which is nothing more than a classic ‘time to get back at the cool kids’ hit piece, Kurtz assigns Palin snarky monikers like ‘half-term governor’ and ‘exiled politician’. What does that mean? Palin could have run for The White House in 2012 but chose not to. Her decision. Just like she decided to not return to Fox. Palin still has a future in politics if she desires to explore one. Kurtz writes (and I think he’s being serious) that Palin “never quite had the impact of, say, a Karl Rove as a Fox talking head”. He’s right about that. While Palin-endorsed candidates this last election cycle had a 75% success rate, Rove wasted hundreds of millions of dollars, only to post a pathetic 1% positive showing. While Palin warned of death panels and called out the GOP establishment for constantly giving in, Rove was busy predicting a Romney landslide. No contest in this match-up, folks.

Predictably, Kurtz also gets in a shot at our Second Amendment. No liberal writing today would be complete without a chic gun grab comment. He calls the use of cross hairs on Palin’s political action committee site ‘unwise’. Kurtz points to the aftermath of the Gabby Giffords shooting and Palin’s subsequent dealings with Roger Ailes as her ‘low point’ at Fox. Says who? Palin disagreeing and not being afraid to stand up to powerful men is not a negative. It’s what makes her great.

The overall idea of Kurtz’ article is that Palin’s stock has fallen. I guess he wasn’t at CPAC this past February for Governor Palin’s keynote speech. A crowd that acted like a mime convention for many speakers erupted as if Hendrix came back from the dead when the Wasilla Warrior hit the stage. I guess Mr. Kurtz and the twitter brigade of malcontents didn’t pay attention to the myriad of Republican candidates yearning for a Palin endorsement for their campaigns. Ted Cruz beamed when reporting his campaign phones lit up like Christmas trees immediately after receiving an official blessing from Palin. Ask Deb Fischer, Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake, Paul Gosar, and Ted Yoho how meaningless Palin support is. All rolled to victory after receiving a Palin endorsement.

The hate of Palin and misunderstanding of her political power makes the Left look even worse than usual. Leaving Fox by choice has opened up many doors for Palin. She can now appear on other networks to express her views while continuing to promote commonsense conservative candidates. Her power in the 2014 primaries could be especially important considering the building sentiment from Tea Partiers to get rid of as many of the spineless, milquetoast, GOP incumbents as possible. Sarah Palin leaves Fox in a great position. While Karl Rove and the other pundits continue to spew meaningless garbage, Palin will be making a real difference, working to elect Constitutionalist candidates. Perhaps one of those candidates may be Governor Palin herself. Oh, the crow that will be eaten then.

False Stories Spread on Gov Palin’s Departure from Fox


Real Clear Politics reported on January 23 that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was not renewing her contract with Fox News. Scott Conroy cited an anonymous source “close to the Palins” as saying, “It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement.” Gov. Palin re-affirmed this account in an interview with Stephen K. Bannon, Producer of The Undefeated on Breitbart News and announced by her in a Facebook Status post. Bannon asked Gov. Palin, “what’s next for you?” She responded:

“I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can’t just preach to the choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience” (emphasis mine).

No one from Fox News has disputed Gov. Palin’s account in any way, shape or form.

Despite the simple facts being what they are, a disturbing array of false stories have been published to the effect that “Fox News dumped Sarah Palin,” and that she is “irrelevant.” These phony stories have appeared in the usual left-wing publications such as Huffington Post.

Simply put, Fox News offered Gov. Palin a renewal contract. She declined it so she can bring her message to a larger audience. By staying with Fox, her contract would have precluded her conducting interviews with other networks, except with rare prior permission. Renewing the contract would have meant more preaching to the choir — because Fox News’ audience is Gov. Palin’s choir so to speak. Those who say that Fox “dumped her,” are telling lies, plain and simple.

The original Breitbart interview now has over 3,800 comments. The people who claim Gov. Palin is “irrelevant” cannot stop talking about her. When our Second Amendment came under attack, a major Tea Party group did not reach out to those some would consider “relevant.” They called out to the “irrelevant” one: Gov. Palin. That Facebook post yielded nearly 181,000 likes and 13,725 comments. How many “relevant” people would kill for these numbers? Time Magazine’s Senior Editor Mark Halperin acknowledged on the Today Show that Gov. Palin still “has so much star power.”

Nor, is Gov. Palin’s relevance strictly in the political realm. She is speaking at a leadership conference in March and is the gala keynote at a major event commemorating Terri Schiavo.

Fox News like any other TV network lives and dies by ratings. If you lose your ratings, you lose your show and no TV network is going to keep you a day longer than they need you. Irrelevant people are not offered contract renewals and most often don’t even get to complete an existing contract. If Gov. Palin’s ratings had tanked and she had ceased to be relevant, Fox News would have cited poor ratings and the decision to not renew would have been theirs. But, Gov. Palin’s ratings were strong and Fox offered her the renewal. As previously reported and stated — she declined the renewal so she can broaden her reach to new markets.

Gov. Palin is highly relevant. Her potential reach to markets outside Fox News strikes fear and loathing in the hearts of her enemies, because she remains — as Stephen Bannon put it — an existential threat to the way they conduct business.
