     ~ SARAH PALIN ~
October 25th-27th, 2012.
Sarah Palin was in New Orleans this past weekend impressing the New Orleans Investment Conference attendees - entrepreneurs who came from as far as New Zealand to be there.  Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker this year. At the end of every conference participants are asked to vote for the person they most would like to see as keynote the following year and they chose Sarah Palin by popular demand.

Among the guest speakers present (there were dozens), were Rick Santelli, Charles Krauthammer and Dinesh D'Souza.  Sarah participated in a panel prior to her speech with the guests mentioned. Needless to say, she did not disappoint! She held her own and garnered even more support after delivering her own speech, which lasted a little over 45 minutes.   

Part I:  Introduction

Part II: Solution to DCs Power and Alaska's Natural Resources
The part missing in the clip is just a few seconds.  Sarah makes a few comment about the election.

She says the race is too close to call, and that whenever the Liberal Media calls the race a "toss-up" that means things are not going well. The audience laughs. She then mentions that the situation is nothing that a good old election can't fix, that there is light at the end of the tunnel, but that there are serious issues confronting us today. The first is to reduce the size and control of an out-of-control and out-of-touch government and the second one is to reduce the size of the debt. Regarding the Democratic Party as seen at the DNC Convention: It is their belief that Government is the only thing we belong to. Good Lord! I don't belong to government. It's not my faith. It's not my community.

Part III:  Common Sense to clean up Corruption in Wasilla

Part IV:  We are an Exceptional Nation

Part V:  Washington is running out of other people's money:

Part V:  Q & A Session following her speech:
Best advice you got on your experience on the campaign trail in 08: (1:31)

On the Media cover-up of the Benghazi cover-up.  (1:36)

Best advice you cwuld give to someone who is in the situation you were in:   (1:32)

There was one question about her running for office. She answered it by saying, "Never say Never."

                        ******* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~********* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ *******
Meeting Sarah Palin was the real reason why I went to the Conference in New Orleans. I had made plans to do so after she decided not to speak at the RNC Convention in Tampa.  This venue was better in the end.

Getting a chance to see Sarah Palin in person was extraordinary.  She is even more beautiful up close than on television, or in the hundreds of pictures and clips I have seen. I spent most of the day thinking about what I would say to her, hoping the words would come out just right in that instant.

Thankfully she is a great listener and was very supportive when I shared my first thoughts. I also got to tell her I was from Miami and mentioned my adopted candidate Karen Harrington hearts Sarah!

At that point she sent me over to Todd who was as stoic and handsome as he is on television. But he intimidated me (which is really my fault because I am a chatty person around quiet people who bring that out it me. I do it to ease my nerves). Meeting Todd was an unexpected yet very pleasant surprise.

I did say to Todd that if Sarah ever came to Miami, she would be in "Bush" country but that people would easily "vote" for her. Then I corrected myself.  Well, you know.. she would be very popular! 

The next time I take my picture, I thought that it will be with Sarah in Miami, at her next fitness book signing.  Sarah, I can lose another 10 lbs and will do what I can to help you sell it here if you help me get there! 

Thank you for stopping by "the Follow-Up."



  1. You get Palin down here to SoFla and I'll tap dance for you!

    We need her down here.

    1. I am very driven, just watch me do it! Just leave me your email and I will get in contact with you if you want to help out, but I'll still enjoy watching the tap dance if you don't.

      :) Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you, Gary! I enjoyed writing it. Like a short Beatles song. Some of the most memorable tunes were written in ten minutes.

      I appreciate you stopping by the blog site.

  3. Excellent article. Thanks for the photos & commentary.

    1. Thank you! It was a pleasure to do! I appreciate your coming by.

  4. Palin is a con artist.

    Who has she campaigned for recently? She asked her SARAHPAC members for donations so that she could campaign.

    How has she helped ALASKA since she QUIT on the people who ELECTED her and BELIEVED in Her? You think you're the only people who have believed in her? An entire State bought into her lies - and she QUIT on them to show her gratitude.

    She is a huckster and I'm sorry you believe her tripe.

    1. You sound like someone who is bitter. I am sorry you cannot see the wonderful things she has done, including (if you view the clips) what she did to deal with corruption in Alaska. Opening yourself up to a new point of view would be a good thing. Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts.

    2. She *never* dealt with Alaska's corruption - She IS Alaska's corruption!

      And, that was while she was supposed to be doing her "job" -- you know, the one she QUIT so that she could...


      That was my point. She said in her QUITTIN' Speech that she was a "lame duck" - proving she has NO. IDEA. what "lame duck" means,

      AND, she was going to use her "non-title" to HELP ALASKA.

      so, What has the Quitter Queen done SINCE SHE QUIT on ALASKANS who ELECTED her?

      You have Nothing, because she has done NOTHING.

      What has she done for Down's Syndrome?

      You have Nothing, because she has done Nothing.

      I'm not bitter. I saw the liar fraud for exactly who she was immediately. I would feel sorry for people who believe in her, but obviously her poisonous hatred for our President feeds y'all.

      Sick, all of you Palin people.

    3. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. God bless you.

    4. What were you doing when your fellow Liberals in Alaska were filing frivilous ethics complaints against her and her family?? If nothing, then you have no business calling her a "quitter" when you could have spoken out against those people who were filing the complaints. However, from your comments, of course you intentionally wanted to see personal harm done against her and her family, and that makes you a very evil person. Don't deny it, as it cannot be hidden. Furthermore, your IRRATIONAL hatred for Sarah Palin is so out there that you have to create lies in your irrational mind of yours to justify it. The fact that you need to continue to attack her by coming to Isabel's blog, UNPROVOKED, more than a year after she decided to not to run in this election cycle speaks volumes of your mental state. For the sake of yourself, and your 2 year old daughter, seek psychological treatment. Isabel responded to your comments with such class. I am sorry that you cannot be a classy person too. However, there is still hope for you. Get help!

  5. Sarah Palin, God's gift to the couture-challenged: black leather biker jacket, ubiquitous black t-top, drapery-fabric pencil skirt, spray-tan down to the ankles but not the feet, and peep-toe bow-tie stiletto sandals. Oh, yeah, and the signature 1980s big-hair 'do.

    Shades of Scarlett O'Hara...

    1. What does that have to do with anything?

    2. You might want to fix yourself first before criticizing others. Thanks for coming by. Have a great day!

    3. Anyone who thinks that Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, ALLEN WEST!!! and Steve Bannon are

      Intelligent, Interesting or Inspiration-Worthy humans are so far gone, there is no help for you.

      Good luck with your blog.

      Palin's fan base is non-existent. Only those who have seen all the disgusting acts of the Quitter Queen left!

    4. Thanks again! I sincerely have no hatred in my heart for you. You just seem angry. Good luck!

  6. Excellent write-up Isabel. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm green with envy :)

  7. Thank you!

    I love your name by the way. It is exactly what happens when someone gets involved in all things Palin. Once you get engaged you never leave. Sarah and her message are forever in our hearts and minds.

  8. Hi Isabel-enjoyed your post immensely. With your permission I'd like to reproduce it on Palin4President2016. No problem if you are not OK with that.

    very best,
