Palin: ´We Haven´t Yet Begun
to Fight!´—Exclusive Interview
with Breitbart News

Breitbart Big Government, by Stephen K. Bannon

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/26/2013 6:48:18 PM

In my research for the film I made on Governor Palin, The Undefeated, I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really important, what really matters, is what sets her apart. Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He lives on in spirit

Would have been nice if Sister Sarah had bothered to fight at all in 2012 rather than postmortem USA.

Timing is everything in politics. Along with charisma what separates Sarah from 315 million others is her exquisite sense of timing. Maybe 2012 wasn´t ripe yet. Time will tell.

The fact she sat on the sidelines without trying to help Romney to defeat Obama in 2012...turning the USA over to a Communist cabal.....tells me MS Sarah is first and foremost about Ms. Sarah ...and that disgusts me

I have to laugh. Unlike the parade of dimwit Republicans who blabbed their regrets, strategy and plans to the press, Palin is holding her cards close to the vest. This seems to drive her detractors a little nuts. #3 is right.

#4, I know of at least $5,000 that she gave to Romney´s campaign.
I don´t know that she was asked to help Romney in any other way, or that she wasn´t rejected if she asked whether they wanted her help.

After all, people who worked for Romney, and later for McCain, went further than not "trying to help" her - they tried, and still try, to destroy her.
Her help may not have been, and likely wasn´t, wanted by the Romney campaign. She obviously wasn´t wanted at the Romney Republican Convention.

Fox curtailed her commentary during the campaign.

I´d bet she voted for Romney, just as I did.

#4, totally agree. I like Palin. I am Palin. Except I don´t play coy. Her refusal to utter the name "Romney" when we needed her most turned me off--- 100%. She´s in this for Sarah, nothing else, and I´m sad about that.
Also, I don´t mean to be nasty here, but she needs to let up a little on that heavier than usual makeup unless her goal is to look um, tartish. She´s soooo naturally pretty--- it´s a goofy distraction.
OK, flame away. I´m not afraid to speak my mind here bc this website has always been a place of tolerance, for which I´m extremely grateful.

I voted for Romney because he was the Republican candidate, BUT he was never fond of TEA party members. Let´s be honest here.
Rove was a Romney lackey and a Bush guy and we all know what he thinks of the TEA party.
Even Barbara Bush´s unseemly remarks about Mrs. Palin were shocking, and beneath the dignity of a former first lady.
GW Bush´s "compassionate conservative" mantra stunk too..as if conservatives are NOT compassionate.

One of the hardest things to do is get up everyday and see that my circle of friends grows smaller, especially on this website. Too many want that ONE person [hero] to stand up and make it all stop, that is the 0bama pain. Our country doesn´t work that way.

President Bush could only do what he could on the War on Terror as Congress and the LSM let him. When Chief Justice Roberts seemed to fail so many of US because of his vote on 0bamaCare, you forgot that by electing 0bama, he stacked the deck against US, and for many years to come. The same is true of Sarah Palin.

Romney was last on my list in the beginning, till he was officially nominated as our candidate. I voted for him proudly, because I put America first, and Ted Cruz. For those who talk down "my" Sarah because of her family´s problems and the monies she´s made are myopic and the reason we keep nominating RINOs. I´ve had had to endure all the Christie slobbering on here and it didn´t take Hurricane Sandy to see what a jerk he is.

It´s amazing that when Sarah speaks, mainly through Facebook and other means because the LSM hate her, she´s prophetic in what is said [death panels looms large with many of US retiring now]. If you want perfect, go to Church and thank God that He made it quite simple for US. Love Him, then our neighbor as ourselves. I don´t see perfect in my mirror.

Romney did not want any association with Sarah Palin, she knew that. Why impose herself on him?
Sarah concentrated on Congressonal and State elections for candidates that wanted her and whose principles she could support.
Sarah serves as a scapegoat for too many in the GOP.

The Republican Establishment used Palin to try to pull McCain across the finish line. Then used her as the scapegoat for when McCain lost. During the next election cycle these same people derided her and complained she wouldn´t shut up. Now they blame her for not helping enough.

How do you reason with someone who´s thought process has no basis in logic or commonsense? Why would you?

So, is that why we lost 8 House seats and let the Democrats increase their majority in the Senate ?
Because the far right decided they didn´t want to fight -i.e. get out and vote ?
But, now Palin and her cohorts will ?
Too little, too late.

I suspect that the Republican leadership and Romney viewed Sarah and the Tea Party as toxic, and did not want them visible prior to the election, so the press would have no issue with the ´Extreme right wing´.

Although there is no direct evidence, it would not surprise me to learn that Sarah had been asked to keep a low profile in the national election.

Regardless of the reason, the fact is that she was not a factor. Now, there is no disputing the outcome. It didn´t work, and it´s time to try something else. The question is, will she respond in a hard-charging fashion?

#2-the Romney camp prior to the 2008 election was already out with K. Madden giving negative commentary on Gov. Palin. Romney kept his hands clean. He knew Palin was the only true competition for 2012; his consultants and Schmidt and Wallace were closer than peas in a pod. S & W were recommended by Romney to assist McCain in 2008. Would you set yourself up to allow being trampled on daily and then be scapegoated for his loss?

#4 Take your ´disgusts´ to apply to the Romney campaign. He faught harder against his peers in the primary than he did against obama.

Romney and his team didn´t want her around as they knew she would outshine him.

#7 Just what might be your definition of ´coy´?

#10-Loyalty plays a huge role in Palin´s life. You seem to think she should have dissed McCain in his election after he brought her to the national stage.

#22 - So Palin should have stayed in the Governer´s office in Alaska while the crazies were filing the ethics complaints so they could create Personal Bankruptcy for her family with 5 children? How intelligent would that have been to let ego destroy her and put her, her spouse and 5 children on the streets?

Palin helped put the 3 REPUBLICAN WINNING Senators into Congress. The RINOs supported their primary opponents.

To any here that say they would never support her - I hope you like what that gets you - and we´ve got it in the WH and senate right now. Bankrupcy staring us in the face - Constitutional rights threatened, corruption, America losing face with the entire world, anything right and decent and traditional is ridiculed and trashed.

But Sarah Palin is the problem? I don´t think so. Go Sarah - I will always love you!

I trust Mrs Palin´s instincts AND her motives.
So far her opinions have not been for sale, rent or trade. They do not change with the direction of the wind or the poll numbers. She is exactly who and what she appears to be.
I cannot say I believe the same of any other politician.
If she runs for anything I will support her and vote for her. If she endorses a candidate I will give that candidate a more favorable look than I otherwise might have.
Maybe for the first time in my life I will be able to leave the voting booth without feeling like I need a shower.

All of these people complaining that Sarah didn´t help Romney...blah...blah...blah. Maybe you forgot, but Romney, and his Karl Rove henchmen, were too busy, along with the democrats, digging up trash and spreading rumors about her and didn´t even bother to invite her to speak at the GOP convention. For that matter, he wouldn´t even allow the mentioning of the tea-party at the convention. It was Romney´s election to lose, and he decided it was better to alienate half of the GOP: tea-party and Palin supporters, than give them any position in which they could help get the communist out of the White House.

Just as I stand with Andrew, I stand with Sarah. She has her principles and convictions

Knowing how the Republican party feels about her, why would she come out to help Romney (especially after he made it clear to stay away from the big guys in charge) This is to take nothing away from Romney, but Sarah was not about to foist false praise on a nominee she could not believe in. Can´t blame her for that. She has that spark and even if those in the party can´t find the way to see it, patriots know it´s ready to light the blaze.

The fact that the Liberals, RINOs and the Progressive corrupt mainstream media all hate Sarah Palin is reason enough to support her. We know who they fear by who they hate. The corrupt MSM seems to love Chris Christie, now what does that tell you? They also love Obama, Bill and Hillary Klintoon and all corrupt Black Democrat politicians. The corrupt MSM loves abortion and Obamacare also and supports disarming American citizens so only criminals will have guns. That is all more than enough reason to support our beloved Sarah Palin. I hate the corrupt wretches in the mainstream media. I think Sarah made a good choice by leaving Fox News. I do not trust Fox News aka the Bob Beckel network anymore.

Lamecherry:

I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us.

I love you Mrs. Palin, but you left the battlefield much to the bloodied eyes of your abandoned Compatriots as you picked at your bag of Chic Fil A battles with your multi million dollar pay off.

Some Americans like yourself can confuse "wisely" with cowardice and confuse "wisely" with prudence, as your due season was purchased with the blood of this blog holding point and field, as you appear with your confederates of Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin exorcising the ghosts of Reagan and Breitbart..

Your Republic is dead Mrs. Palin and you are foolish to distract Patriots to fighting over a corpse buried in the Obama Abyss.
If you happen to lurch into the light in the embers of the shattered Bonhomme Richard, know this Mrs. Palin that John Paul Jones in his "I have not yet begun to fight", it was about striking the colors and you struck yours as you abandoned the field for more prudent quarters.

Those who remained on this dangerous and bloodied fields have not forgotten, nor is the sound of current tourists on our field, is held with the same value as advice in "how we should have bled better".

Our flag is not upon a sunken ship of state, but is nailed fast upon the enemy´s Serapis now our possession.

We know our ship Mrs. Palin. We know the treacherous waters upon which we sail. We know our colors are nailed to our mast. We know the battle Mrs. Palin.

Mustangs earn their braid and brass.

God bless you Sarah Palin.

She should have stayed to fight...in 2012 regardless if it was not her own limelight....not gone Hollywood with plastic surgery and getting her kids contracts..shallow doesn´t do it.

Surprise! Surprise! As usual, the shallow-thinking, narrow-minded, low-information Palin-bashers are out in force, airing their flimsy theories once again. So, what else is new?

Sarah Palin is accused of being everything from diabolically devious to dumb as a post and everything in between. Wow! Talk about “living rent-free” in some peoples’ brains!

And let’s not forget the Abortion Remorse contingent who can’t for the life of them understand what she sees in Trig. They even despise her subliminally.

People who feel a burning desire to play the blame game would be well-advised to concentrate their efforts on the unlikeliest person of all who has the highest title of all and is hell-bent on fundamentally transforming what we used to have into what tragically lies ahead if patriots such as Sarah just play it safe by doing nothing.

For who she is, what she has done and what I know she is capable of doing in the future, I’m proud to offer her 100% of my support anytime she asks for it.

Psych 101. Some people who disparage Sarah Palin feel vastly superior by doing so. Please indulge me. I’m not a shrink but I attempt to play one every so often on these threads here at Lucianne University.

The Sarah Threads are as lively as usual.

Did anyone read the Breitbart article about what is happening in D.C. right now?
With the exception of Michelle Bachmann, there is no one in the capitol that I would trust to make a bologna sandwich...much less policy.
They´re ALL either traitors, moochers, or spineless pubs.

Sarah has not, nor ever will be, one of them.
While Romney and Ryan are having D.C. luncheons, Sarah is planning her next move to get the truth out. These days, that is about the hardest job anyone has.

The GOP lost me when Boehner bent over for Barry & removed all Tea Party Patriots from committees.

I´m not so sure the GOP is worth wrestling back from the progressive RINO´s. The libs used tobacco tactics to demonize the brand successfully.

An American Heritage Party made up of patriots & Tea Partiers, bent on saving the constitution makes more sense... Palin, Paul, Cain, West & The Heritage Foundation can make a lot of noise!

For those who didn´t know much about Shirley Temple, her passing this week revealed two surprises. First, that her post-Hollywood career was dominated by public service. She ran (unsuccessfully) for Congress in 1967, served as a representative to the United Nations and was ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. And second, she was a Republican. She was that rarest of things nowadays: a Hollywood star who admitted to voting for the GOP. Today, Hollywood appears uniformly liberal. But once upon a time, things were different.

Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the Internal Revenue Service to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races. In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly. They are also careful to say the IRS should treat conservative and liberal groups equally, but they’re concerned about an impending tidal wave of attack ads funded by GOP-allied organizations. Much of the funding for those groups is secret, in contrast to the donations lawmakers collect, which must be

GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, MI – After a five-year hiatus, a Grand Rapids Township resident is again putting snow to good use by sculpting giant animals in his front yard. Stephen Garcia´s returning debut? A life-sized shark swimming in a wave that runs the length of his and his girlfriend´s home at 2040 Four Mile Road NE, east of Plainfield Avenue. Its bright red mouth – complete with pointy teeth – is large enough for a human to take a seat inside. The big fish has been turning heads since Garcia sprayed it with a coat of paint earlier this week.

I could write another post about how lawless Obama’s constant re-writing of law without regard for the text of said law is. It is lawless, and it does threaten the foundations of the republic — Charles Krauthammer and Jonathan Turley, one conservative, the other liberal, agree on that. It sets a horrible precedent for future presidents to rule by fiat. It is a violation of the spirit and purpose of the Constitution. Barack Obama is getting away with it because, as I’ve written before, he has hacked the Constitution. I’m not alone in understanding that Obama has hacked the Constitution

According to Reporters Without Borders, America dropped 13 spots on the World Press Freedom Index 2014, designed to rank 180 countries in terms of the freedoms journalists enjoy and the regulations placed on them by government authorities. The Index, published Feb. 11, shows that America now ranks number 46, below countries like South Africa and France. The Index has been published annually since 2002, but the 2014 ranking for America marks one of the most significant declines ever reported. According to Christophe Deloire, the Reporters Without Borders Secretary General, the World Freedom Index is based on seven criteria: the level

The following is not for the faint of heart. Even those with iron constitutions may not be able to stomach these pictures. John McCain has been decrying the carnage in Syria for a long time, lambasting the administration for not doing more to assist the rebels battling the Assad regime. Wednesday, he tried a new tack. McCain used his Twitter account to post close-up pictures of rows of dead children, an infant with its legs badly injured, and naked emaciated corpses laid out on concrete slabs. The photos are a handful of 55,000 smuggled out of Syria documenting Assad’s torture.

Obama´s Two Americas: The Economy
and How Democrats Win Elections

President Obama is dividing America into two nations—one rich, the other increasingly poor, and both more likely to elect Democrats. Americans growing richer support his policies, and those growing poorer are increasingly dependent on Democratic politicians for government handouts. In this century, the economy has not performed well, and a jobs shortage has driven down the income of most Americans. Obama’s “recovery” has managed only 2.4 percent growth, but George W. Bush’s expansion scored about the same rate and then collapsed altogether. Since 2001, when Bush took office, the U.S. economy has created only 4.7 million jobs—about 30,000 a month

The Boy Scouts of America said Wednesday that it lost 6 percent of its membership after an often-bruising year in which it announced it would accept openly gay boys for the first time, over the objections of some participants who eventually left the organization. The organization´s national leadership voted in May to accept openly gay boys for the first time, while continuing to exclude gay leaders. That policy change, while lauded by gay-rights groups, angered conservatives and some members who consider homosexuality a sin and a violation of Scouting values. BSA spokesman Deron Smith said Wednesday that the 2013 decline could

A college sorority has been shut down after an photo was circulated showing members dressed in an offensive parody of Mexicans. It showed the sisters of Chi Omega at Penn State wearing sombreros, ponchos and fake moustaches while holding up signs saying ´will mow lawn for weed + beer´ and ´I don´t cut grass I smoke it´. The picture - apparently taken around Halloween 2012 - came to light in December that year and sparked an immediate backlash from fellow students at the publicly funded university. On Tuesday Chi Omega´s national organisation finally shut down its Penn State chapter, having

WASHINGTON — King Abdullah II of Jordan is visiting Washington this week, making the rounds at the State Department, the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill. President Obama is in town, too, playing host to the French president, signing an executive order on wages and getting briefed on a snowstorm bearing down on the East Coast. So where are he and the king having dinner on Friday? At a desert estate in Southern California. Mr. Obama’s meeting with King Abdullah, at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage, Calif., raised questions at the White House on Wednesday, because the two leaders are practically running

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

One guest thought the cost of the dress was close to $10,000. "Well, first of all, I love the dress on her because I think it´s so elegant and so simple. I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless. I think we want to call that French blue, maybe," said a guest. "Some people might call it periwinkle and it´s got this sort of jet bodice and everything, and I think it´s realy pretty.

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived.

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before. It´s very French in terms of how ornate it

The first lady chose a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with a voluminous skirt and lace-overlay top. The blue and black gown is the first dress with sleeves Obama has worn to a state dinner. Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer. A wide black velvet belt breaks up the top from the

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

Fiery Louis Farrakhan of Nation of Islam fame said during his weekly video sermon that white people have a history of stirring up trouble, and that Allah has chosen blacks “to give life” and sit at the “top of civilization.” He also “issued the final call,” as he termed it: “I say to the Pope and all the lovers of Jesus, if you desire, let’s have a showdown. You call the Jesus that you know, and I’ll call on the Jesus that I know, and let’s see which one of us really knows Jesus.” Mr. Farrakhan quoted widely from Elijah

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.) said Tuesday that the committee’s investigation of the Internal Revenue Service found that 100 percent of the tax-exempt groups that were flagged and targeted with an audit were right-leaning. The Wall Street Journal reports: “We now know that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s,” Mr. Camp said in a statement. “At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information.

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to
