Palin to GOP: ´This Won´t Be
Forgotten Come 2014´

Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/4/2012 1:53:56 PM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Tuesday that she thinks House Speaker John Boehner’s purge of conservatives from powerful committees is a sign the GOP establishment is out of touch with America. “We send good conservatives to D.C. to fulfill the promises they made to the electorate, and yet when they stay true to their word the permanent political class in their own party punishes them,” Palin said in a Facebook comment. “This won´t be forgotten come 2014. Right now the GOP establishment is more concerned about the opinion of the media and the Georgetown cocktail circuit than

Sarah Palin´s decision not to run in 2012 is looking more and more prescient. I always suspected it was based mostly on subversion from the GOP atni-Tea Party establishment.

Another great article from Matthew Boyle today...

And Sarah, as always, writing what needs to be said... “We send good conservatives to D.C. to fulfill the promises they made to the electorate, and yet when they stay true to their word the permanent political class in their own party punishes them" ...

Good heavens - this is not the time for threats. Do people realize the seriousness of the fiscal situation? We are honestly going to have to work with the democrats. The whole country is needed to solve the mess we are in!

#1, you mean you think she was coerced into not running in 2012? No, I believe she found it less sweaty to issue statements from Facebook instead of pitching her bonnet ringside, getting involved and working hard as the authentic candidates were doing.

Governor Palin is correct. It won´t be forgotten, that said, we will remember but there is nothing we can do about it.

We´ve written, called, rallied and voted. No matter how long our memories are it matters not a wit.

The game is rigged against decent, law abiding, God fearing, constitution respecting Americans. The America we were born into is gone never to be seen again.

Unless some conservative with great ideas, lots of fellow patriotic minded staff and tons of money does something then nothing is going to change.

I agree totally with Miss M., as usual. I am sick and tired of the palin whining and trying to get in the mix. I do not care what she thinks or says. Making a bloody fool out of herself, shadowing Mitt around at his speeches while campaigning was not a sane act.

Heaven forbid there´s politickin goin on in Washington. Duh. Good catch Sarah. What´s she going to do come 2014? Boehner will win re-election and he´ll remain speaker. The GOP elevates those who belong to the Bob Michel ´Don´t rock the boat´ school to leadership positions. If she actually wanted to do something useful she´d speak out when the voting for leadership takes place.

Capitulation and compromise, while both beginning with the letter "c", are not synonymous. "Work with", implies give and take. What evidence have you seen from the current administration that this has been the case?

While I would like to believe Mrs. Palin is correct, evidence over the past 10 years lead me to believe otherwise. The sheep will follow the Republican elites like we always do. It is 3rd party time. I´d rather lose with dignity next time around.

Say what you will, Pelosi has more testosterone in her wizened little finger than Boehner has in his body.

Palin is right. However, why are Republicans engaging in this circular firing squad, a spectacle our enemies, particularly enemies in the media, love? This is not the time. Republicans should all shut up, lick their wounds, regroup and, when they have one, come out with a unified fighting message. What happened to Ronald Reagan´s 11th commandment, do not criticize other Republicans?

#4 How do you work with the Democrats? It´s their way or the highway. This is just another version of the healthcare bill. It is getting bloated with spending, and the real issues are fading from the spotlight. How does taxation suddenly change to give Obama unlimited power to raise the debt ceiling?

The Dems are pros at putting crap into bills they want passed, remember the stimulus bill republicans were forced to pass because they added military spending, which really had nothing to do with bailouts, to it. It was designed to force Republicans hands, lest they be viewed as not supporting our military.

One thing the Dems don´t do is play fair. It´s becoming an Achille´s heel to the Republicans who keep trying to.

I trust Sarah over establishment Repugs any day of the week.

That being said, it may be too early to tell where this will lead.

If the deficit spending is not dealt with in a serious manner soon then the Repugs will be finished; they will have no moral foundation to govern, nor to expect people to continue to hold their noses and vote for them (or more likely against the Dimms -voting For someone is a bit cliche nowadays).

Republican Party = Whig Party circa 1850.

Lets start building our future with new political parties based upon honor, integrity, and power distributed back to the states.

# 5, 9, 14 & 18 - True to form! Even with holding our noses and voting for your Mittens he could not win. If he had played the game as aggressively during the campaign as he did against his peers in the primary, perhaps the results would have been better.
Oh yes, he kept his hands clean but certainly allowed his surrogates to attack Palin since before election day in 2008 -- Kevin Madden on C.N.N. prior to the election -- continuing thereafter. He didn´t have enough backbone to ask for her help.
Now, what comments are we hearing from Mittens? Oh, that was a pin that dropped!
Gov. Palin is saying what needs to be said.

@#2: Your first paragraph contradicts itself.

This would be a good time for Paul Ryan to stand up and quit his committee assignment in protest of Boehner`s purge. If Ryan has any future plans to be president or senator he needs to show his conservative bonafides or be relegated to the GOP ash heap of history - which is growing ever larger.

Some of us warned the Tea Party at least a year ago their grass roots only movement needed deeper roots to survive long term.
Once again grass roots are about 6 to 8 in deep and that is just not sustaining if the deep Tap Roots don´t follow.
Sarah learned better than to trust hard core conservatives who only paid attention when winning and their refusal to endorse a wider scope for the movement to include all anti-liberal factions.

Reading these comments I am heartened that perhaps there are more Patriot and intelligent Americans that the vote of 2012 suggests.
Given that between 10% to 20% of the "vote" was fraudlent I still thought reason and American Conservitism should have prevailed.
Term limits and recapturing the entire voting process from the dimfecals is a giant step towards sanity, but these rinos and sell outs must go.
Between the rnc and rinos cowardice, catering to lobbyist, and stupidity we have no choice but depose them.
I hope someday we can make it less attractive ( and lucrative) to vote themselves in to an aristocratic and autocratic class with undeserved retirement and other benefits.

The article states that some of the changes were requested by the Committee chairmen.
Palin´s threats and baseless comments about DC cocktail parties are just more conspiracy fodder.
Republicans lost 8 House seats this past election and their majority has shrunk.
If the Democrats pick up 17 seats in 2014 , they will control the House.
Boehner is the Majority Leader , Palin is not .
Instead of rants and threats from the sidelines ,which accomplish nothing, Palin should get out of her arm chair and run in 2014 for the House
seat presently held by Don Young.

I´d like to see some legitimate documentation that Romney sent his minions to attack Palin. And by legitimate documentation, I don´t mean a citation of some crackpot blogger.

If she was truly the only one who could save this country, she should have jumped into the 2012 race. And please, don´t tell me she didn´t because her life or the lives of her children were threatened. Every public figure gets death threats, particularly those in politics or law enforcement. If you´re really brave, you ignore the threats, take reasonable precautions, and forge ahead with your work.

Once again, conservatves have been sold out by the GOP leadership who are more comfortable being the "out" party than actually having to lead this country. It´s one election past time for a new conservative party and then let the GOP find out what it´s like to lose it´s physical and fiscal support.

Would Sarah be @ Blair House sending these "tweets" to Breitbart,WAPO,on Greta?

I was not aware Ms Palin has rwo separate and distinct paths to FISCAL SANITY.

I enjoy watching the GOP/RNC Establishment pom-pom squad high kicking to their anti-Palin cheers. These are the exact same group of Republican flying monkeys who slapped you in the face, demanded you toe the party line and vote for Romney because he was super electable.

Now that they have blown another election cycle, they slap you in the face blaming you for the loss because you werent enthusiastic enough. Once you realize that you are not dealing with reasonable people, but a small cabal of GOP/RNC fan club members, it all makes sense.

Half of them wear Team Boehner t-shirts and the other half would be flinging their panties at the man like rock star groupies.

Much of the provided entourage, the "Handlers" for Palin came from Romney´s 2008 campaign. And those were second and third tier Bush loyalists. Devotees of such winners as Nicolle Wallace, they weren´t exactly shy about bragging about how much they hated Palin, and still do, for reasons that have to do more with the fact that she didn´t appreciate the Beltway table manners and inside baseball knowledge of the beltway than any ideology ( which they lack). Examine the threads here and you will find that the loudest and most persistent antiPalinistas are also those who spent the past two years ramping up for Romney, providing any and all negative articles about Romney opponents. Romney´s negative operations is probably the highlight of his campaign, and Palin and Thompson, just like Cain, Bauman, Gingrich, Perry, Christie and Santorum, were just reputations in the way of Mitt´s inevitable greatness.
Palin didn´t sit in her armchair during the 2010 elections, as did Mitt. She didn´t come running to be seen with winners after the fact.
And if she drives you crazy, you are in fact part of the problem.

The same ones who told us over and over that ONLY John McCain COULD win, were the same ones who told us ONLY Mitt could win...at least... if Sarah had run against the Hoax in the WH she would have wiped the floor with him in the debates..we could have had THAT much.

#4, for democrats, it´s their way or the highway. You should know by now there is no compromise with democrats. Even if Boehner folds and taxes are increased on the so called rich, they will be back to the table in six months demanding taxes be raised on the next group of income earners. That would be every body else. In the meanwhile, they will not offer ANYTHING to help reduce the debt.

To make matters worse, come 2014, the democrats will blame republicans for raising taxes in 2012 and making their lives hell. Remember Bush I. Anyone that thinks BO is not pining for disaster is an idiot.

I have always thought all along that what the American people crave is an anti-corruption party. We all know that both parties are loaded up with corrupt career politicians who once they get in office their sole goal in life is to get re-elected and they are willing to compromise everything else to do that. The very act of being a career politician is corrupt in itself. Look at Obama for example. His performance as President was dismal, yet once he got in the White House, his sole goal in life was to get re-elected. He spent nearly every walking hour of his life campaigning to get re-elected. Just about everything that is wrong with our government today consists of deals and backroom deals in order to get re-elected.

It would appear that there is literally no end to the animosity felt toward Palin by some on this site.They rarely disagree with what she says; instead they appear to disagree with her very existence. For others, it seems anything that inconvenienced Romney on his way to losing the most important election of our lifetime must be attacked. As party leader, Mitt Romney made absolutely no effort to mend fences with Sarah Palin and unite the party; in fact, he made every effort to exclude her from any role in the 2012 election. In a way, I´m glad because if Palin had tried to help, she now would be the reason Mitt lost instead of Chris Christie. For some, the delusions run even deeper than the animosity.

Poster likes that statement so much he places a variation on each Palin thread, sort of a pre-emptive challenge. I don´t think it makes much sense, but I will pick up the gauntlet by saying to the poster that if Mitt Romney and his supporters drive you crazy, you are, in fact, part of the problem.

There are about six serial posters who bash Palin. They are for Boehner, Romney, McCain, BushI II III IIIIIIIII, Dole, anyone but a candidate that would reform. I think if Reagan ran today they would bash him and pick Rockerfeller. The Repubs are welcome to their party of moderates. No conservative can expect any consideration from them. Our country is doomed and it is not because of those of us who are conservative. I worked the phones until my ears were inflammed for Romney. He was not up to the job of fighting for us. So he lost. Now his Romneybots are back to the usual business of bashing Palin. You guys are so empty.

More mothers have been staying home with their children since the recession ended, but a growing number of them say that’s primarily because they can’t find a job, according to a new study. Almost three in 10 mothers with children under 18 living with them are stay-at-home moms, an analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center showed. That is a 3 percentage point jump from the depth of the recession in 2008. (Snip) After decades of decline, the share of mothers with children in the house has been growing since around 2000.

On Monday, Senator Franken sent out a dire email warning of Palin´s influence on the election. He also could not resist attacking the Koch brothers as well.

How are the nation´s universities responding so students might prepare for a promising career in this growing and intellectually challenging field? By largely ignoring it. Why?

Now, Portsmouth is going to be the start of the next chapter in my life,” he told supporters in an email.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen sure talks a lot about “outside” money. She raises campaign funds by claiming to protect the state from outside “special interests” who might help Scott Brown. Those poor donors probably have no idea how much money Shaheen raises from out-of-state special interests. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign donations, Shaheen has raised 75 percent of her 2014 campaign cash from out of state. For her career, Shaheen’s top 10 metropolitan areas for campaign donations are, in order: Boston; New York City; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Lowell, Mass; San Francisco; Manchester; Chicago; Portsmouth; Philadelphia.

STORRS, Conn.– Jubilant fans celebrating UConn’s Monday night national basketball championship win smashed a window in an engineering building, broke street lights and overturned furniture inside the school’s student union. Campus police had made 30 arrests by 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, while state police had made others and more were expected, said University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen. “A lot of it was alcohol-related,” Breen said. “There was breech of peace, destruction of property, and we had a fireworks charge.” Most of the property damage was minor, he said. No serious injuries had been reported. “By far, most of our students

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will headline South Carolina´s annual Silver Elephant dinner in June, one of the major events on the state´s Republican calendar and a key function for any potential presidential candidate hoping to play in the first-in-the-South primary. “We are proud to welcome Gov. Bobby Jindal to South Carolina,” South Carolina GOP Chairman Matt Moore said Tuesday confirming the choice. (Snip) Jindal will travel to Columbia on June 6 to deliver his keynote remarks. Other potential Republican presidential hopefuls have headlined the event in recent years, including Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2013 and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,

UPS sent 17 more Queens drivers packing Friday night, bringing the total number of workers fired in an ongoing labor dispute to 36, the Daily News has learned. The shipping company fired 19 workers a week ago and informed another 17 they were no longer on payroll effective Friday, said spokesman Steve Gaut. The remaining 214 will be let go as replacement drivers are trained, the company has said. United Parcel Service decided to fire all 250 of its Queens delivery drivers after they participated in a 90-minute work stoppage two months ago. They were protesting the dismissal of a

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
