Sarah Palin Takes on Big Oil: A Book Preview

There is a new book out on Sarah Palin describing factually how she took on the oil industry in Alaska. Since it’s not tainted with sensationalist bias, it probably won’t be a best-seller.

I’ve read only the excerpt online. I have no idea if it is pro-Sarah or anti-Sarah from what I read. It just appears that the author wrote the bulk of the material prior to the vice presidential nomination and didn’t have an agenda.

Even the “God’s Will” quote often lampooned by liberal journalists is put in proper context. That is, she said it would have to be nothing short of God’s will to unite all the warring and corrupt factions in Alaska in order for a pipeline to be built. And then she asked students in her former church to pray for God’s will to be done.

That was it!



Some snippets from the book:

“Let me help you out if you’re looking for skeletons in my closet. I got a D in a macro-econ course 24 years ago in college (and) hollered at the wrong kid this morning for not taking out the garbage.”

— Sarah Palin, The Associated Press, August 2006, during Alaska gubernatorial campaign




“With Frank Murkowski and Ben Stevens in charge, it’s like the Night of the Living Dead. We’re being guided by two people whose political careers are over.”

— Sen. Hollis French, D-Anchorage, Petroleum News, Aug. 27, 2006, after incumbent Gov. Frank Murkowski lost to Sarah Palin in the Republican primary, and after Alaska Senate President Ben Stevens’ office was searched by the FBI as part of an ongoing investigation into political corruption in Alaska.




“In my personal belief, we have gone from being in front of the curve to being in back of the curve…”

— Joe Marushack, vice president of gas development for ConocoPhillips Alaska, told the Alaska Legislature’s Senate Resources Committee early in February 2007, after Sarah Palin became governor and scrapped the fiscal contract ConocoPhillips, BP and ExxonMobil had negotiated with the previous governor.




“I think God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that.”

— Sarah Palin, on the multi-billion dollar gas pipeline project she wanted built from the North Slope to markets in and outside of Alaska, speaking to students at the Wasilla Assembly of God Church, June 2008




“How does Gov. Palin manage it all? The kids, family, responsibilities as governor?”

– Kay Cashman




“She doesn’t do anything else. It’s all kids and work. … Her idea of a big night out is a barbecue in her backyard.”

— Judy Patrick, photographer and close friend to Palin




“… Your leadership and that of your administration has been outstanding and your integrity and transparent style are a breath of fresh air in what has proven to be a rather shady and smoke-filled past in regard to energy issues in Alaska.”

— David Sokol, chairman and CEO of MidAmerican Holdings Co. (a Warren Buffet company), to Gov. Sarah Palin, related to her work on a pipeline to carry North Slope gas to market.

Review by Trish Harren:

For all the conversation about Sarah Palin, there are very few factual references materials regarding who this woman is and what she has actually done as a leader. There is a new book set to hit the shelves by mid October that will finally end that void. The book is being published by Petroleum News Alaska and is call ‘Sarah takes on Big Oil’

This book is the story of Gov. Sarah Palin’s battle with Alaska’s ‘Big3’ oil companies, as told by the state’s top oil and gas writers Kay Cashman and Kristen Nelson. These woman are uniquely qualified to tell the story of Palin and her dealings with the oil industry. Cashman is the publisher and executive editor of Petroleum News, an independent news-driven weekly newspaper. Nelson, editor-in-chief of Petroleum News, has maintained a long-time eye on Alaska government and its interactions with the state’s most lucrative industry.

Cashman and Nelson deliver a three-dimensional portrait of the Palin administration and the unusual circumstances that have bracketed her leadership. The authors bring a perspective based on knowledge rarely available to general news reporters. As a result, “Sarah takes on Big Oil” is a good read, full of lively personalities and verifiable facts.

My mom is the co-author and while this book lacks the entertainment of SNL, it will give you some facts and insight into a woman who has us all asking, regardless of political persuasion: Who is Sarah Palin?

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Running Time: 28 minutes

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!
