-- Now we turn to a woman who understands that raising the debt ceiling is not a serious answer to the nation's fourteen point three trillion dollar debt.
She's also a woman who understands that this nation's debt can only be -- done when entitlement reform takes place.
And all the borrowing stops.
Former Alaska governor Sarah -- and Governor Palin it's a pleasure as always welcome back to freedom watch.
Hey thank you so much with my honor.
Recently the New York Times and the Washington Post somehow persuaded.
Government of Alaska the folks that succeeded -- and power.
To release -- emails that today eroding your first several years in office it was a big -- home.
The liberal media was -- -- -- something scandalous -- starlets they found nothing.
Why do you think that the -- anyone along with us and disseminated these emails that you wrote.
Well you know it certainly shows the priorities in what was once and I respected cornerstone of our democracy our.
Mainstream media and we see that priorities or are quite skewed.
But with the gusto that they went after my emails from back in 06 to 09 during my term.
As governor you know I hope that folks who read the emails learned a lot about oil and gas policy and how important it is to take steps towards energy independence here in America which Alaska.
It's a leader -- and fishing game conservation and that was a big priority of mine is protecting Second Amendment right -- people who read the emails understood.
Why I opposed Obama's stimulus package in Vito finds out of the stimulus package and -- ethics reform that I worked -- just -- the folks -- learned a lot from these.
I guess sort of benign and forty emails but -- it showed I think a picture what my priorities word.
With servants heart -- trying to serve the good people of Alaska.
You know it showed it showed you hard at work and and the buildup to this was a lot greater than the actual.
Reality the anticipation of it was.
Was such a drumbeat you must actually feel vindicated that there was no there there from the point of view of what the liberal media was hoping to fine.
Well judge between you know having my own personal emails hacked during the vice presidential campaign and then having.
A former staffer who had -- five years' worth of emails and then.
Presented those to the public out of context in a book that he recently wrote you know I knew there was nothing to -- because I you know I I know what I.
Done over -- yourself.
You know -- some -- in in the emails though that.
I thought yeah provided some vindication like why I killed the bridge to nowhere -- -- in Alaska knowing that it wasn't a state priorities what should be a federal priority explaining that my staff.
In Washington DC -- DN.
Juneau Alaska our state capital via email explaining to staff why it was important to.
-- project like -- on the emails and hopefully it just shed some more light for people to understand.
My ideology my thinking about smaller smarter government and why that's so important for our nation as a whole.
Here in New York today we all witnessed the -- spectacle.
Of congressman -- -- still a congressman Anthony Weiner announcing that he was going to resign.
Because of personal behavior that was so utterly reprehensible.
Should the congress have threatened to kick him out or are they have people of Brooklyn and queens -- -- of -- have a pervert.
Representing them in congress if that's what they want.
Well yes they are entitled to having someone like Anthony Weiner represent -- it truly that is what they want but.
I have faith in the people there in Queens and elsewhere in New York that they deserve better and -- I think that they will.
And they were received better -- -- from henceforth after his personal indiscretions were disclosed.
If you be rendered it it tends basically buried in caught it wasn't going to be able to be effective.
So I'm obviously it was the right thing to do it day late dollar short though I think you should resigned right when all of this came to light.
