Sarah Palin: The Only Hope

A great message of hope from Sarah Palin:

Unspeakable evil slammed America in the beautiful little town of Newtown, Connecticut, just days ago. No words can express the collective shock and sorrow shared by Americans who know the murder of innocent children is the most horrendous crime imaginable. The Connecticut state motto, “Qui transtulit sustinet,” promises that only God can sustain us. Though still insufficient and unfulfilling for the grieving families of these beautiful babies in the Lord’s arms now, perhaps those words are all the inconsolable loved ones can hold on to at this time. May God show His sustaining love to them right now. Please Lord.


It may seem, especially after Friday, the world is spinning fast and furious and out of control. Many political, economic, and societal problems attempt to weigh down our spirit so heavily that some despondently give up after being deceptively led to believe there is no real hope for anything getting better. And despite 24-hour news cycles with constant information flooding our eyes and ears with much white noise, TV’s talking heads really have nothing meaningful to offer.


So the world spins furiously, but there is a reason its literal and figurative centrifugal force tightly holds us here together for such a time as this. Until God loosens the tie that binds us to this temporal earth, we are in it together, and we are expected to do our part to make it better. So, now is the time to speak truth, however politically incorrect some may deem it, and focus on what really matters so our nation’s spirit can be lifted as we unite in the cause for a better world built on real hope. First, all truly is hopeless if your faith and hope are put in any politician or media elite. That is because the average person is more truthful and responsible than the average politician or media elite.


Those who let themselves be terribly disappointed in political leaders as they ignore real problems, aided along with a complicit media bombarding us with irrelevant distractions in order to avoid facing the reality of a fallen culture, should know those distractions are to hide from a finger pointing to the main contributors to much of our problem. To stop distracting would result in acknowledging the political and media machine’s starring roles in our failing society. So, as they too often tear down those who try to do good, while elevating and celebrating corrupt selfishness, they dumbly assume we don’t know it is they who significantly contribute to our upside down world today. We’ve learned our lesson. Don’t put your hope in Hollywood or Washington. Instead, build resolve and seek truth more aggressively than ever at such a time as this.


I only know one source of truth and real hope. I call out to this hope with only childlike faith because I am so overwhelmed by the miraculous answers to my prayers that the comforting, secure hope I cling to is too inexplicable for a simpleminded person like me. Plus, because I am not a perfect Christian – and have never met one – I dare not judge others’ “Christian quotient,” and inarticulately explaining my faith is too often interpreted wrongly, hence, my thankfulness in being allowed via the Good Book to have a childlike faith that’s good enough for God. Further, I do not wish to force my beliefs down anyone’s throat – and simple faith does not do that. Though I’ll share my faith unapologetically, I beg fellow faith-filled fallible human beings to quit pretending anyone’s effective in forcing others to see the light; please also quit pretending you are holier than thou. You are not. I am not. We’re merely fortunate enough to have been knocked to our knees at some point in life and grabbed hold of the opportunity to accept undeserved grace and forgiveness that allows a rebirth and its accompanying peace that passeth all understanding. I cling to it not because I am bitter, but because there is nothing better.


May this Christmas season give you a glimpse of the faith to which millions cling to, and are willing to live and die to self for. As you watch this video, even if you’ve never prayed before, you can ask God for revelation to what occurred 2000 years ago, what it means for today, and why we celebrate the babe born in that Bethlehem manger over 2000 years ago. And I offer this not because I have all the answers, but because many ask me from where does my hope come? How do I hang on? What do I cling to? Here is a glimpse of the foundation of my faith. May you be shown through this short clip and song that the unanswered questions, the horrible suffering, and the sacrifice of One birthed opportunity for new life and real HOPE for all of us today.


Friends, please watch this, and please don’t lose hope. We mustn’t lose hope! Look up! And put your time and effort in working so hard for your family and loved ones around you. Don’t wait for a fallen world’s politicians and pundits to do it for you. You can have within yourself the ability and opportunity to help make America strong again, and her people joyful again.

    Sarah, Class Act as always.

  • Thank you Sarah, your statement is beautiful and I pray it reaches even just one lost soul. God be with you and God bless us all.

    • BlueGood

      Aye, Thank you Sarah…Not only is her message beautiful, but as simple as that of Jesus….

      Sarah always cuts through the B.S. that we’ve come to “accept” as politics…and how very wrong the Politicians and Talking Heads are all, always trying to make everything so complicated…in order to make themselves seem more intelligent, more insightful, better than anyone else….

      Sarah is bang on that we no longer have to take the B.S….but just turn inward to the simple but very real peace that is in each and everyone of us….We can only hope the “Others” will “GET IT”… time, once again!

  • 1endtimes2020

    Thank you, Sarah. We don’t have to be perfect to qualify to express ourselves. I remember the time when we didn’t need electronic surveillance on every street, at our homes and in our stores. Certainly not in our schools, that more and more need security guards. As America has become more Godless, secular solutions to protect us do not work very well. Government control is replacing self control.
    Americans must turn back to God, who has been faithful to protecting our lands in the past, and will again when we turn away from our sins. Sins that include 50 million abortions, porn, mind altering drugs, and promotion of violence by a Hollywood that has become Follywood.
    We have removed God from our schools, and who is left to protect us and our children? Including God in commentary offends too many, yet what alternatives do they offer? No one can take the power of prayer from each of us. We must pray for unbelievers, so they can turn to God also, and not blame God for allowing tragedy caused by the devil—known as king of the earth. One day Jesus Christ will remove the devil from this planet, and life will be better.

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      ” I remember the time when we didn’t need electronic surveillance on every street, at our homes and in our stores.”
      Remember the Tylenol poisonings in the 1980s; the initiation of all the foil container seals we struggle with daily. To me, this represents the first evidence of America’s moral step-down. I find myself wondering increasingly at what point the goodhearted American people will rise up and say, “Enough…stop!”

      I re-discovered Frederick Douglass last Thursday [thanks to Levin’s show] and find his quotes relevant; especially, “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.” – Frederick Douglass

      • unseen1

        re-discover Thomas Paine’s Common sense too. mo0st of the answers have all ready been found by people a lot smarter than us during the founding of this country. We forget that and think we are the smarter people. But they lived it first hand and knew the dangers of out of controlled government. Sadly we all have forgot.

    Just wanted to say, while reading these comforting words, the image of the painting of George Washington, knelt next to his horse in prayer, came to mind.

  • las1

    To stop distracting would result in acknowledging the political and media machine’s [and Hollywood’s] starring roles in our failing society.

    I wonder if Jamie Foxx would agree with this statement.

    I have one simple question for Jamie Foxx: Seeing you are such a gun advocate yourself there Jamie (at least in your movies anyway), is this also what you had in mind when you you gleefully get to “kill all the white people”.

    Just askin’ there Jamie… Just askin”

  • bongobear

    She’ll probably get blasted by the libs for this statement but she’s right. Our society is rotting from within and our politicians and most of the news media are as culpable as anyone for this.

    • Betsey_Ross

      Actually, we haven’t been paying attention. It’s us that is allowing all of this to happen. We need to step it up, work harder and more effectively. We have a nation to save. God helps those that help themselves.

        Amen to that. We let it happen.

  • colliemum

    This whole post shows why Sarah Palin is such outstanding human being.

    I can’t quote her whole post – just go and read it again! – but only want to point out that having a ‘child-like faith’ is most difficult to achieve, and we only get there after much work, and of course this:
    “We’re merely fortunate enough to have been knocked to our knees at some point in life and grabbed hold of the opportunity to accept undeserved grace and forgiveness that allows a rebirth and its accompanying peace that passeth all understanding.”
    (Sorry, I did have to quote Sarah after all …!)

    • wodiej

      More Christians emulating her would certainly be a good start for us to start acting like we’re supposed to.

  • I couldn’t bear to watch the news this weekend. After a while, it always degenerates into the same talking points. Do we need more guns, or fewer guns? Do we need more laws, or do we need to enforce the laws that are already on the books? Can you blame guns, or is the culture to blame? You know the drill and sadly these discussions seem to be getting all too frequent these days. Ever since the the mass shootings that wounded Gabby Giffords and killed several others, there seems to have been an explosion of mass or multiple shootings. After a while you become numb to it, wondering if it will ever end.

    That all stopped last Friday. When you lose 20 kids aged 6 and 7, plus six adults trying to defend them, there is something diabolically wrong with America. Yes, I said it. There IS something wrong with America. I don’t know if it’s guns or what we see in the media that influences kids or just a terrible evil that’s in our hearts that is to blame, but it’s there, folks. And we’d better find some answers, fast, because I’m seeing more of these shootings in the news today, not fewer.

    It’s too easy to blame guns. That’s the coward’s way out. Blame a tool for all your failings as a society and as a culture. When people don’t have God, religion, or simple human compassion in their lives anymore, when they reject morality and don’t see the need in our culture to even be civil to fellow human beings, is it a wonder that we can produce animals like the one that killed all those people last Friday? Just look at what kids today see on television, the movies, computer games, or on the Internet and tell me humanity, in general, looks better today than it did 50 years ago. As humans, our humanity is supposed to be evolving for the better. At least that’s the hope. Yet a case could be made that we’re acting worse today on a global basis than we did back in the days leading up to World War II. When you see how society is up to its ears in trouble both here and around the world, something has gone terribly wrong. And we all know what the 1930s lead to. World War II.

    So what’s the answer? Well, if people really want some answers, they are going to have to look at our society, our mass-media culture, and our government in its totality. And I honestly don’t think we have the strength or the will to do that. More people will die because there is a sickness in our hearts and minds in this country, not because one state has more guns than another. So until we have that honest conversation, I urge you to take a look as this video. It was the speech Billy Graham gave after the Oklahoma City bombing in the 1990s. The message he gave back then could easily be given today and it would make perfect sense, especially when he talks about hatred and evil. If you want, you can find it here:

    • unseen1

      Always remember we are seeing the first total generation raised in a godless society and that about anwsers all your questions.

  • BHliberty

    How inexplicably inspiring and uplifting! She is a true leader and reminds me of Prime Minister from Britain, Margaret Thatcher who once said:

    “Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. And watch your character, for they become your destiny. What we think we become.”

    You Governor Palin, are a woman of character! May God bless her and the families of Newton, CT.

  • Judefour

    Not sure what Todd’s wife means by “forcing others..”, “holier than thou”, or “I dare not judge others christian quotient.” If any of this is meant to suggest that sin is consistent with true christianity, then I reject it entirely, regardless of it’s popularity with the masses. The promise in the gospel of Jesus, far surpasses the fleshly wisdom of man. We must be determined to agree with, and submit to the teaching of Jesus and His apostles. Anyone teaching any other doctrine than that of the apostles, is to be considered “accursed”. Jesus said that if anyone teaches (directly or indirectly), anyone to disobey the “least” of His commandments, that ‘teacher’ will “not” inherit the kingdom of God.

    On a side note: Jesus was not born anyhwere beyond the month of October at the very latest. The scriptures are silent on the necessary observance of what is commonly referred to as ‘christmas’, but it does command the saints to frequently observe the Lords supper (communion) in rememberence of Jesus “death till He comes”; so says the blessed Jesus Himself. The current hype around the birth of Jesus is preferable to the women though, and fits well with our feminine society. All it takes to be a ‘christian’ in this context, is to feel some emotional rush about the infant Jesus. Who besides the hard hearted, does not find an infant to be precious and becoming? Jesus does not want to be thought of this way, but as He truly is; King of Kings & Lord of Lords.

    For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Eph 2:10)

    For we are his workmanship – So far is this salvation from being our own work, or granted for our own works’ sake, that we are ourselves not only the creatures of God, but our new creation was produced by his power; for we are created in Christ Jesus unto good works. He has saved us that we may show forth the virtues of Him who called us from darkness into his marvelous light. For though we are not saved for our good works, yet we are saved that we may perform good works, to the glory of God and the benefit of man.

    Which God hath before ordained – For which God before prepared us, that we might walk in them. For being saved from sin we are made partakers of the Spirit of holiness; and it is natural to that Spirit to lead to the practice of holiness; and he who is not holy in his life is not saved by the grace of Christ. The before ordaining, or rather preparing, must refer to the time when God began the new creation in their hearts; for from the first inspiration of God upon the soul it begins to love holiness; and obedience to the will of God is the very element in which a holy or regenerated soul lives.

    • RefudiateGOPe

      I don’t think anyone came here today to be preached to. You apparently are the type of person that Governor Palin was referring to when she used the words, “forcing others..”, “holier than thou”, or “I dare not judge others christian quotient.”

      Your sanctimony is unwelcome. Get over yourself.

    • PhillyCon

      Her name is “Sarah Palin”, not “Todd’s wife.” She, at least, deserves that much from you.

      • Judefour

        Scripture would refer to her as a “man’s wife” in the highest sense of honor. I am opposed to the degrading of females, regardless of how they degrade themselves or approve of things that alienate them from Gods will. God told Abimalech that he would be “dead” if he touched Sarah, and he stated to him emphatically; “she is a man’s wife.” I will always honor the husband as far as I am able without compromise, even if he has conceded his proper authority in his home, or allows his wife and children to go beyond the bounds of modesty and submission. No practice or civil right, no matter how universally accepted by society, changes the commandments of God in the least. Todd is ultimately responsible for how he governed his family, male and female. It appears that divorce (treachery) is accepted in this family, and likely supported by their preferred religion. Nevertheless, God forbids it, and His word will prevail in the end.

    • unseen1

    • tinker_thinker

      You threw a stone. :o( that is consistent with sin. While you were preaching to others..what do you call that?

      • Judefour

        Warning people about false teachings and reminding them of the necessity of a holy conversation, is “throwing a stone”? How so? Jesus exposed hypocrisy (professing Him with the mouth but denying Him in DEEDS), and reproved them in front of the whole assembly. The Jesus of the bible was threatened by his own relatives and community, (who were intent on throwing Him off a cliff) as soon as He did one act; He started to preach. Remember that Jesus and the apostles were constatnly being persecuted by the ‘religious’. The world hated Jesus for one reason; He “testified of it that the works therof are evil.” The same hatred is practised today. I’ve encouraged no person to sin, or to believe that the unrighteous will enter Heaven. If we can’t say; “it is no longer I that live, but Christ that liveth in me”, we are not among those that will be at the right hand of Jesus. Death sanctifies no person, but rushes you to the place that you were perpared for during this short vapor of a life; “if the tree falls to the North, to the North it will lie.”

        • tinker_thinker

          Never the less, the stone was thrown by you while you were preaching to amount of excuses, and claiming ignorance, and further preaching by one such as you will change that. Heed your own words.

          • Judefour

            I will certainly heed the commandments of scripture. No ignorance here, and the accusation has no grounds whatsoever. I make no excuse or apology for affirming the truth of scripture. God respects no mans person. It is self evident, that a person who applies the sciptures, as impartially demanding obedience, would necessarily be included themselves.

            • tinker_thinker

              Yes, that is just another excuse…

    • Don’t be so silly, the Bible says if anyone say ‘s they have no sin they are liars and the truth is not in them, we sin in word thought or deed, and it says even your own good works, or righteous deeds are as filthy rags, we are a universe away from God’s standard of Holiness friend, we can never measure up in ourselves. But thank God Jesus came died and rose again and even though we could never measure up in ourselves, he measured up for us he filled the great expanse between us and God and and gave us his righteousness, he made up the difference , and when God sees a believer he sees the righteousness of his Son,. And more than that we are made God’s own children, and belong to His household with the privileges to come into God’s very presence, and receive the needed forgiveness when we fail so we can live for and serve God. We should strive to live holy before God, or separate from sin, but we can never be good enough, that’s why the great Apostle Paul said, ” for by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God not of works lest any man should boast.

      • Judefour

        I won’t concede to your affirming the doctrine of Calvin, not in the slighest. I am fully aware of this fatal doctrine, and it’s consequences. The implication of an imaginary ‘imputed righteousness’ is in fact turning the grace of God into license. We are justified by grace through faith, but Paul continues by describing the effect of that divine work of God by stating: ” For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto GOOD WORKS, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. The ‘good works’ in this text are not the fleshly ‘filthy rags’s of the unregenerate, but the works that are “wrought in God’ by following after the Spirit and not after the flesh. It’s not likely that I will prevail with you. Once Calvin’s false doctrine is reconciled to the conscience, it is difficult to retract. You have the numbers on your side, but I’m not one of them for sure, call the doctrine of holiness ‘silly’ if you choose, but Jesus stated unequivocally that any person who is not conformed to His teaching in the sermon on the mount, is “building their house (soul) on sand”. The apostles warn repeatedly of the “error of the lawless”, which comes by means of false teachers. The works of the Spirit never merited anything, but no person has any scriptural hope of seeing God, who’s life is not governed by the Holy Spirit. Nothing in the whole book of God, teaches that Jesus perfect righteous life, is a covering for someones personal unholiness. One thing is for sure; at least one of us is wrong, and that has eternal consequences. In the 18th century, Calvins doctrine was rightly referred to as ‘antinomianism’ (grace frees us from obligation to Gods moral law). Paul shatters such nonsense: “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.”

      • Judefour

        The full context of your first text follows;

        If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1Jn 1:8-10)

        John is clearly destroying the false teaching of the gnostics, who justified a continuance in sin, by seperating the body and the spirit. Nothing in the text even suggests what most use it for, which is to justify the continual state of ‘sinning’ in thougth word or deed, on a daily basis. Strange contrivance of man; the devil himself can’t sin in more ways than in thought, word, and deed. The blessed apostle made sure that he would not be misunderstood here. He states in the same letter;

        Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. (1Jn 3:7-10)

    As I watched the news this weekend, I was quickly sickened-again-first by the atrocity, then by the pundits. Shame, shame on them! And thank you so much, Sarah. You summed it up! The “experts” said many things. Not one said, “we need to get God back in our schools, we need to start each day with a prayer and then the pledge of allegiance to our flag, we need to teach our children love”.

  • Spartan4Palin

    This should have been the speech given in Connecticut. This is the kind of leadership our country needs. That is what our nation is starving for. Not what we have now. Those that see the political expendience for a ’cause’. We have been drifting far too long away from God and family. And in desperate times we reach for something ‘meaningful’ and when not properly educated, we end up with what we have now. We need to do some REAL soul searching right now. And not rely on knee-jerking political hacks and the media that carries their water.

    My prayers are with those in Connecticut and all over our nation. May God hold us tight in His hands as we find our way out of the darkness and back into the light of His love.

    Thank You Sarah for your uplifting message in these dark days. Sarah Palin always sees the bigger picture.

  • Why is Sarah Palin even involved? Since she quit her post in Alaska, she hasn’t run for public office but acts like a politician who calls her constituents “fans.” What exactly does she do other than essentially proposition her self and image to the highest bidder? Sounds like Sarah is America’s highest paid escort! See how down and dirty she’ll get for the money at

    …the average person is more truthful and responsible than the average politician or media elite.‘ – Sarah Palin

    This is the crux of the matter. When we can convince the average citizen of this, so that they will stop believing the pundits and politicians, we will be on our way to righting this listing ship we call America.

    After this terrible tragedy, the LameStream came out, and will continue to come out, with their version of what must be done to “stop the gun violence”. They will say we need to ban all guns. They will say we need to ban violent video games. They will want all mentally disabled people put under surveillance and under lock and key.

    I will tell you what the real problem is and what we need to do to stop this insanity that we continually see time after time. We, each and every one of us, need to put God back into our lives and we need to take personal responsibility for what happens around us.

    We have to stop wanting a nanny state that gives us things we can’t or won’t get for ourselves. We need to stop thinking our parents owe us something. We need to stop thinking our politicians owe us something. Those that have been successful shouldn’t have to bear the burden of those that won’t. We need to look out for our own and stop turning a blind eye to mental problems that seem to affect many of these killers (most often under some type of medication, with family and friends ignoring warning signs).

    The media has to stop glorifying this type of behavior just to get better ratings (and in the long run, causing more to desire to commit the same or worse atrocity). Without taking personal responsibility for what they print, we will continue to see more and more evil acts.

    Personal responsibility – to take God back into our lives, our schools, and our actions – is the only way we can stop this free fall into the decadent abyss that will be the final destruction of us all. Turn a blind eye to these problems because they seem to be someone else’s and they only get larger.
