COULD SARAH PALIN BE AMERICA’S FUTURE DEBORAH?
March 17, 2013
As I sit down to draft this article, the Conservative Political Action Conference is meeting in Oxon Hill, MD and two hours away from a presidential straw poll. When I turned the TV on, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was speaking about how we had to rebuild American and how never before has our challenges been so big and our leaders so small. I’d just been reading Judges 5 – the song of Deborah and Barak. In the fourth chapter of Judges we saw the incident concerning Deborah during days when Israel was experiencing lawlessness and grave immorality. It was not safe to even walk the streets and hijacking on the roads was a familiar scene. Deborah knew all about this kind of danger.
Unlike many radical feminist women today searching for their identity and the power that comes along with being an elected official, Deborah said she was a mother and was not looking for a job at all but she was God’s choice and she became one of Israel’s outstanding judges. As we were waiting for the straw poll results, the news was about North Korea’s threats to America and again, we wonder where our leader, President Barack Obama might be playing more golf and what are his plans for our security because in addition to cutting programs that affect our Constitutional security in a variety of ways, we know the military heads the list.
In Biblical times, when a woman came into power, it was evidence of weakness in the male leadership and so it is today. The radical feminists elected to our state legislatures are working the men over regularly on issues near and dear to their hearts by playing on their emotions and all the “victims” that need “special rights.” Israel had a weak-kneed general by the name of Barak. This sissy wanted to stay home and avoid the fighting lines. Deborah had to agree to go with him before he was willing to go and battle the enemy. In the last presidential campaign, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tx) was the only one who had military service. There are many examples in the Bible of women being used by God. Deborah had a mother’s heart and did not want to leave her home but rulers had ceased to rule and there was no great man who could lead. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose own presidential bid fizzled last year, got to jab his Republican rival Mitt Romney. He criticized the news media for suggesting the losing GOP presidential campaign of 2008 and 2012 represented a defeat for conservatism. “That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates,” said Perry who is considering another White House bid in 2016.
The situation in Israel was tragic. Deborah wanted something better for her children than what she saw. Because of her desire, she became a judge in Israel. She stepped out and took the lead in a day when her nation had denied God as men do today – only instead of become atheists, they became polytheists. They began to worship many gods which will lead to a One World Religion but it won’t be Christian. Think of the multitudes today that are living without God. Deborah did not want her children to grow up this way and that is why she stepped out as she did. In America we’ve had many Deborah’s calling out the warnings for many decades of the dangers of the radical Marxist feminist movement and the failure of the public schools to encourage patriotism, reading, writing and arithmetic but instead indoctrinating the children preparing them for the New World Order.
I wrote about these wonderful women in the Kitchen Intelligentsia in February 2003 and their influence on my political activism. Kelleigh Nelson’s recent article refers to them as the Kitchen Militia. And now News With Views has outspoken and courageous Devvy Kidd who tells it like it is A number of these women, including yours truly have attempted to run for their state legislatures to no avail because the GOP party didn’t think we were electable so they put forth and supported some uninformed sycophant. I brought in 45% of the votes in my two attempts with little money and no GOP help. My first attempt was against a 17 year moderate Democrat.
This is why I always admired former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin. I personally don’t believe Sarah ever went looking for any elected political position for like Deborah, she had a mother’s heart. Glen Beck reported on his radio show that Sarah had the campaign bus stop at WalMart so she could buy diapers for her baby while she was on the campaign trail. Immediately after John McCain picked Sarah as his running made in August, 2008, the entire press corps was air-dropped into Alaska to dig up dirt on the governor and her family. Through it all she put up with the slime pigs in the media going through her e-mails and her frozen garbage looking for some scintilla they could use to discredit her. Even some conservatives took some jabs at Sarah.
As an infant, Sarah was baptized in the Catholic church but as an adult was “nurturered” in the Wasilla Assembly of God Church. Unlike so many people who think they are Christian because they were born into a Christian home, Sarah became a Christian at age 11. I found it interesting that the main entrance of her current church, the Wasilla Bible Church with a 1000 evangelical membership in December 2008 was set on fire while a small group including two children, was inside working on crafts. Fortunately no one was injured.
From relative obscurity to instant celebrity nearly in a single day, Sarah vaulted into the limelight. She presented herself as a combination of a “hockey mom and pit bull” who had credentials far greater than the Community Organizer, Barack Obama before he was elected to the U.S. Senate. Admittedly she wasn’t as sharp as some expected on foreign affairs and when she would make a gaffe, it would take John McCain days to come to her defense and then it would be wishy washy but only minutes for him to attack Senator Rand Paul about his recent filibuster. Gretta VanSustern on FOX ran a poll whether Sarah should run for President in 2012. 9,000 people voted on Grettawire.com. 92% said yes – 8% said no.

A fisherman from Alaska told a story about Sarah Palin and how she once was the “darling of the Democrats” because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow Republican and that tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the “corrupt Bastards Club” and turned in her private jet to save the taxpayers money. In an interview with Gretta Van Sustern on 11/24/2009, she said she’ll not compromise her values and positions in order to placate certain demographics. So love her or hate her, because I found the similarities so profound between what we are experiencing in America today to what Deborah faced in her day right down to the name of Barack that I had to write the article.
As CPAC came to a close, Senator Rand Paul came in first and Rubio second. Having been a strong supporter of his father, Congressman Ron Paul, we naturally could support Rand but the 2016 presidential election – if we have one – is far into the future and many things could change.
