Events of the Week… CPAC 2014, Russia-Ukraine Escalating, Missing Malaysian Plane and Virtually “No” Wreckage Found?

 Ted Cruz: “We are still a nation of laws. You just have to check with Barack Obama every day to see what they are.” #gridirondinner

Lampooned as a political caveman by the left, Senator Ted Cruz took a star turn Saturday night at the annual Gridiron dinner.  “Since I’ve been thrown out of our Senate lunches, it’s really nice to be invited to dinner,” he said, one of several jokes playing on his status as one of the most despised men in Washington.

Rand Paul’s #CPAC2014 Speech ~> “Mr. President, we will not let you shred our constitution.”  Rand Paul won the CPAC-2014 Straw Poll

Sarah Palin ~> “We Have Reason To Be Optimistic For Upcoming Midterms” ~> Must See Video

The night before she was giving the keynote speech at CPAC, Sarah Palin was interviewed by  Greta Van Susteran on On the Record.  She was positive about America’s future and based on her constant interaction with people all over the country, Palin said there is reason for optimism because America is waking up!

Palin Wowed the CPAC Crowd! Paul Won the Straw Poll


She credited Senator Ted Cruz for his hard work and called on voters to get all of Congress on “Cruz control”.  Palin even channeled her inner Cruz by breaking out a copy of Green Eggs and Ham, but she rewrote the Dr. Seuss classic. 

“I do not like this Uncle Sam, I do not like his health care scam. 

I do not like these dirty crooks or how they lie and cook the books.

I do not like when Congress steals. I do not like their crony deals.

I do not like this spying, man. I do not like ‘oh yes we can’.

I do not like the spending spree. We’re smart, we know there’s nothing free.

I do not like reporters smug replies, when I complain about their lies.

I do not like this kind of hope and we wont take it… nope, nope, nope.”

Palin’s version brought down the house.

Palin was funny bur hard-hitting and her comments were wildly well received… Judge Jeanine Pirro pulled together a video of some of the highllights.

Book(s) of the Week – “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy / Kindle – By Eric Metaxas

B003GY0K48 Eric Metaxas was a speaker at CPAC-2015…


As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent, and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer—a pastor and author. In this New York Times best-selling biography, Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life—the theologian and the spy—and draws them together to tell a searing story of incredible moral courage in the face of monstrous evil. Metaxas presents the fullest accounting of Bonhoeffer’s heart-wrenching decision to leave the safe haven of America to return to Hitler’s Germany, and sheds new light on Bonhoeffer’s involvement in the famous Valkyrie plot and in “Operation 7,” the effort to smuggle Jews into neutral Switzerland.

“Bonhoeffer is the story of a life framed by a passion for truth and a commitment to justice on behalf of those who face implacable evil.  Includes Readers’ Guide  “[A] beautifully constructed biography.”

—Alan Wolfe, The New Republic

“Metaxas tells Bonhoeffer’s story with passion and theological sophistication. . . .”

Wall Street Journal

“[A] weighty, riveting analysis of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. . . .”

Publishers Weekly

“Metaxas presents Bonhoeffer as a clear-headed, deeply convicted Christian who submitted to no one and nothing except God and his Word.”

Christianity Today

“Metaxas has written a book that adds a new dimension to World War II, a new understanding of how evil can seize the soul of a nation and a man of faith can confront it. . . .”

—Thomas Fleming, author, The New Dealers’ War

“Metaxas has created a biography of uncommon power—intelligent, moving, well researched,vividly written, and rich in implication for our own lives. Or to put it another way: Buy this book. Read it. Then buy another copy and give it to a person you love. It’s that good.”

—Archbishop Charles Chaput, First Things

“A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st century.”

Kirkus Reviews

  • 2011 ECPA Book of the Year
  • 2011 Canterbury Medal by the Becket Fund recognizing courage in the defense of religious liberty
  • 2011 Christopher Award winner highlighting the power of faith, courage, and action

“A definitive Bonhoeffer biography for the 21st century.”

-Kirkus Reviews

Metaxas is also the author of: Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness, Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, Bonhoeffer Study Guide: The Life and Writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Socrates in the City: Conversations on “Life, God, and Other Small Topics” and Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (but were afraid to ask)

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
