Going Rogue: Sarah Palin
says she plans to ´shake
up the GOP machine´ with
$1.2M raised through her PAC

Daily Mail (UK), by Leslie Larson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/29/2013 12:21:54 PM

Once again Sarah Palin is showing that she has no plans to play by the rules. She has parted ways with FOX News after a turbulent relationship with the conservative cable news channel, taken pot shots at pundits in the ´lame stream media´ and slammed her own party for selecting Mitt Romney as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Now the former Alaska governor says she´ll use the $1.2 million raised through her SarahPAC to ´shake up the GOP machine´ and unveiled a vague vision on how she´ll get her message out to a larger audience.

so 1.2 Million will allow her to reach a larger audience than being on fox news?

Hmmm... Shake it up like when she endorsed John McShame? Or Orrin Hatch?

Yeah, she really shakes things up *eye roll*

Great! She can help give us more losers, like the Republican Senate candidates from Delaware, Missouri, Nevada, and with a special shout out, the rape guy from Indiana.

It´s her way or the highway. Anyone who is off the Palin reservation is a RINO.

And #5, if she were serious, she would run for the senate seat in Alaska against the Democrat. But she´s not, so I would prefer if she would just go home and bake cookies.

Sarah, your 15 minutes of fame are long over. Go away!

Read the posts on this thread, and you can see why the GOP today can’t agree on the time of day, let alone win an election. Sarah Palin is a patriot who speaks her mind and takes a stand. That isn´t welcome to many on this thread and in the GOP. The GOP herd may need some culling, but the Sarah Palin’s of the party aren´t the sort who need culling. Others might do a little introspecting.

I wouldn´t be so quick to dance on her political grave. By freeing herself from her FOX commitments she is free to pick her own venues, and not be hamstrung by needing Roger Ailes´s permission for appearances. The lecture circuit awaits. Also talk radio, campaigns for conservative candidates in upcoming elections, new books, op-ed pieces in new media outlets like PJ Media, Breitbart, The Blaze and other places. Then there is a Senate race opening up in 2014. FOX was useful for her for a while, but she´s grown beyond needing Greta Van Sustern, or Shawn Hannity for little driblets of exposure.

I admire a person who displays such courage. That kind of courage doesn´t quit and she didn´t "quit" being governor so she could have time to get her nails done. She left a legion of frivolous lawsuits that would have cost her state millions and kept her from doing anything else to help conservatives.
Her and her family would have been destroyed...she made the right choice.

She has been reviled more than any Republican ever...even Bush. And still she believes in the greatness of America. She knows who the enemy is.

She also knew the establishment chooses the candidates and her efforts were better spent on Fox...who still tried to hamstring her.

This woman has always been on our side...always. I´ve got no problem with her kids doing what they do...I have kids the same age and if any self-righteous fool thinks kids are trained monkeys then they don´t really believe in freedom. None of her kids are addicts or law-breakers...they struggle through this life with the rest of us. That is Sarah´s real appeal to real Americans.

We need her. Go Sarah.

#9: A house (or party) divided .. and so forth. The fundamental problem with the GOP is that its constituents have conflicting interests. (Nothing makes this more apparent than the immigration issue. WallStreeters/CountryClubbers want lax immigration, while middle-class conservatives want strict enforcement.)

If Sarah really wants to shake things up, she should join the effort to start a new political party.

The dem pols and their statist media take all of the vile venom which they have for their opposition, America´s conservative voters, and spew it all out at Gov. Palin. All of their bogus rhetoric which targets her is actually what they would like to say to America´s conservatives. Thus, Palin suffers their slings & arrows, which are in reality directed at all patriotic Americans.

I´m just one person but I prefer Sarah the elected leader to Sarah the paid mouthpiece or reality star, which are less than a dime a dozen. I´m not jealous nor a hater, we need a true leader on our side and every one deserves a second act. Quitting the governorship was wrong, to cave to your enemies is wrong and yes even forgivable. If she quit for her family sake she should´ve just said it, nothing wrong with going for the money either. I never heard or saw anything but praise from Romney for her, but not Sarah, she had to undercut him at every turn. I might even forgive that if she will just take action and run again. We are not going to get our power back this way, sure it may make her rich (great) but getting office back away from these thugs, now that I will celebrate.

Palin threatens to end the perpetual taxpayer gravey train the Republican Establishment gorges itself on along with their democrat partners in gluttony like she did in Alaska.

If you havent seen the "Boomtown" special on Fox you owe it to yourself to do so. That will clear up why the Republican Establishment and its fan club here on Lucianne.com hate Palin.

Yep, #24, we lost and there are no easy answers as to why. I´m not sure what your comment has to do with Mrs. Palin, though, since she was on the 2008 ticket and stayed away from helping with the 2012 campaign.

Pathetic since 1968? Do you remember that we´ve won several presidential elections since 1968, even aside from Reagan? Not enough, I´ll grant you.

Perhaps 2016 will be better, but first we must concentrate on 2014.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

More than 3,000 gun rights activists rallied on the lawn of the Connecticut state Capitol Saturday to protest the one-year anniversary of the state´s stringent gun control laws, passed in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. Organized by the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, the rally lasted from noon to 2 p.m. and featured political candidates, 2nd Amendment rights supporters and attorneys as speakers.

HARTFORD — Almost a year to the day after the state legislature passed a historic and far-reaching gun control law, thousands of opponents of the law gathered at the state Capitol on Saturday to remind legislators that they aren´t going anywhere. The rally, organized by the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, drew supporters from all over the state and from other states to the Capitol lawn on Saturday, two days after Gov. Dannel P.

The helicopter kicked up a cloud of freshly fallen snow that partly obscured the ground below, but despite the poor visibility, it gently touched down in a landing that was unremarkable except for the fact no one was at the controls. The helicopter, filmed during testing by the Naval Research Laboratory, was piloted by a 100-pound (45-kg) sensor and software package that officials said can turn any rotary-winged aircraft into a virtually autonomous drone able to fly with minimal input from the Marine Corps troops it was designed to serve.

WASHINGTON — After months of wincing in the face of negative ads funded by the industrialists David and Charles Koch, Democrats believe they have finally found a way to fight back: attacking the brothers’ sprawling business conglomerate as callous and indifferent to the lives of ordinary people while pursuing profit and power. By drawing public attention to layoffs by subsidiaries of Koch Industries across the country — a chemical plant in North Carolina, an oil refinery in Alaska, a lumber operation in Arkansas — Democrats are seeking to make villains of the reclusive billionaires, whose political organizations have spent more

In the sometimes separate world of public housing, a realistic fear of crime lingers over 400,000 tenants — and it’s getting worse. Many of the working people and elderly who make up the vast majority of New York City Housing Authority residents live in a constant state of hyper-awareness to avoid becoming a victim. Records obtained exclusively by the Daily News reveal that in the last five years, public housing tenants have been battered by a stubbornly resilient spike in crime. NYCHA’s 334 projects saw a 31% spike in major crime to an eight-year high, while the rest of the city

Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been moved from a federal prison in North Carolina to a minimum-security prison camp in Montgomery, Ala., after clashing with prison officials and being placed in solitary confinement, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times. The 49-year-old former Chicago congressman had been advising other inmates in North Carolina about their rights in prison, according to the source, who said a guard took exception to that. As a result, the longtime South Side politician was placed in solitary confinement for four or five days more than a month ago, the source said. A hearing was

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

Free Speech: Right after the Supreme Court´s decision to lift limits on campaign contributions, Democrats and their left-wing supporters assaulted the decision as a boon to Republicans, "the party of the rich." This of course is part of a far-wider narrative — slavishly repeated by largely unquestioning liberal media — that the GOP outspends Democrats on campaigns thanks to big-buck donors like the billionaire Koch brothers. But, as it turns out, that´s a lie — as big a lie, in fact, as "you can keep your insurance," "you can keep your doctor" and "ObamaCare will bend the cost curve down."

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and
