Coming Saturday: Inspired by Sarah Palin, Grizzly Coalition Hosts Second Grizzly Fest Event

Nearly four months ago, supporters of Governor Sarah Palin--including yours truly--were gearing up for the first-ever Grizzly Fest event. Inspired by Sarah's October 5th challenge to "continue to actively and aggressively help those who will stop the 'fundamental transformation' of our nation, and instead seek the restoration of our greatness, our goodness and our constitutional republic based on the rule of law," panelists focused on how to most effectively move forward following Sarah's announcement that she would not make a 2012 bid for the White House. And, move forward they have, supporting strong conservative candidates nationwide. 

This second event, the Online Winter Summit, will focus on sudden and relentless reform. Part one will focus on the watchdogs, with Sarah Nuckles and Adam Andrzejewski, two panelists who are well acquainted with what it means to hold the government accountable. Part two will be hosted by Peter Schweizer, author of the new book "Throw Them All Out", and Luigi Zingales, co-author of "Saving Capitalism From The Capitalists." Together, they will give listeners a crash course in crony capitalism. Part three will focus on the theme of the summit: sudden and relentless reform. Listeners will have the privilege of hearing from Alabama state senator and Congressman Bachus opponent Scott Beason, and Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, who is facing a recall election in her state because of the stand she's taken against public sector unions alongside her Governor, Scott Walker. 

The Online Winter Grizzly Fest Summit will be held this Saturday, February 25, at 1:00 PM ET. I encourage you to listen live on the Grizzly Fest website so that you, too, can learn more about returning this great nation to the principles upon which it was founded.

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Our Next Vice President?

According to a report released Friday by the Daily Caller, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers could become the next U.S. vice president. 
First elected in 2004, McMorris Rodgers is now in her second term as vice chairman of the Republican Conference, which makes her the highest-ranking Republican woman on Capitol Hill. She has built a significant amount of behind-the-scenes clout, and has become one of her party’s most influential leaders on issues like international bailouts, earmark reform and the fight against Obamacare.
It's no secret that McMorris Rodgers is well respected in Congress, and a strong advocate on Capitol Hill on behalf of conservative women. Her name was first thrown into the mix by Republican strategist and pollster Kellyanne Conway, who was also the first to suggest that Governor Sarah Palin could be on the list in 2008.  
“She’s got conservative credentials, a compelling life story,” Conway, who has worked with McMorris Rodgers in the past, told The DC. “It’s accepted wisdom in Washington, D.C. that it’s difficult to make time for family, and she turned that notion on its head...She’s been a big help in making sure that the party and the leadership know that women are not an interest group but 53 percent of active voters,” Conway said. “That it’s important to understand them culturally and engage them politically."
When asked about the possibility, the Congresswoman was very humble in her reply. 
“It’s hard for me to imagine the nominee would actually approach me, you know?” she told The DC when asked whether she’d consider taking the job. “I think I’ll just leave it at that, and we’ll see where it goes.”
We knew 2012 would be an exciting year in politics, and with announcements like this, it's sure to be anything but boring!

Sarah To Give Keynote at CPAC

It was announced early last month that Sarah will be giving the keynote speech at CPAC next Saturday, February 11, 4:30 PM.  This will be the first time Sarah has been a part of the CPAC lineup, and I admit, I'm a little more than excited to hear her live once again. I hope to see you there!
