Palin to Rubio: ´Hope It Was
Worth 30 Pieces of Silver´

Breitbart Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 6/29/2013 12:29:31 PM

After reports that President Obama called Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) to congratulate him on the passage of the immigration reform bill in the Senate – Rubio did not answer the call – former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) blasted Rubio:{Full Article}
Headline resplit and source corrected by Staff

Comments:
Palin has seen the underbelly of the beast, the man behind the curtain, the party with a knife for you back. The 30 pieces of silver may be metaphorical, but the principle is the same. Rarely does anything happen in Washington that doesn´t result in enriching those who support it.

Our gal Sarah, calling it what it is. The only question is whether he was ever one of us at all, or whether it was just one big hustle right from the start.

She´s just not smart enough to understand how many votes Karl Rove will gain in 2016. The establishment RNC has this under control, sweetie, just sit down and shut up.

#1; I think it´s been a hustle from the start. Outside of Miami, Orlano, etc. FL is still a pretty conservative state and Rubio pulled the sombrero over our eyes. Mine included.

Rubio is banking on most voters having short memories. He thinks he can do what McLame did the last time he got reelected - go home, talk tough and the rubes will fall for it. I still can´t believe AZ reelected McCain.

Ditto Sarah! If Rubio runs for president some day he will not get two votes that he would have gotten before he became a turncoat. Hubby and I will be looking at some other candidate to contribute to and vote for. Rubio is toast.

I´m not defending Rubio´s actions in all this but he may have thrown himself on the sword for the party´s sake. Consultants and others are bugging the hell out of republicans to look immigrant friendly,so someone had to be the front person to sell the idea.

To some extent,the republicans can now say they supported immigration reform,knowing all along it´ll never get through the House.

I´d like to know who´s bankrolling this group "Americans for a conservative direction" who are pushing this amnesty bill.Rubio´s catching hell for his support of this but nothing on Paul Ryan.

It´s really Obama who´s holding this up anyway,maybe for the midterms next year. He refuses to enforce the border which makes all the other issues moot.So Obama´s handing republicans a blanket excuse to not support it.

#9 - Rubio is being the most vocal, thus he´s taking most often shots. The RepublicanParty in general is suffering and will suffer worse for this. Conservatives are leaving the party in droves. Their fundraising is off.

Many of us independents see no real difference between the Dems and Repubs, other than the Dems are honest about how they want to screw us. The Repubs lie and then flip flop to join the Dems.

They are toast.

Rubio is done. His debt to Jeb Bush and Karl Rove (actually the entire Bush family who for some reason worship illegal Mexicans) while ignoring the pain they are causing American citzens) will cost him.

I believe poster #5 is right. Rubio is counting on a short public memory, his silver-tongued rhetoric, the distraction other issues will provide over the next few years and a lack of appealing and well funded opponents to get him over. And who knows? This plan may work.

How many times did Rubio come on Hannity to assure us all that if it wasn´t border security first, he would walk?

I don´t see him walking.

In fact I don´t see him with a future in politics after this - at least not in any party with a conservative agenda.

I don´t know about that #16. As they say "A picture is worth a 1,000 words", and the picture I saw of the "gang" Rubio seemed to know he was toast for this. He didn´t smile, wouldn´t look at anything but the desk in front of him. An aide must have given him a heads up - word.

Changed registration more than 10 years ago to vote in a primary. We are now going to change back to Independent/Unenrolled

The reality is, however, that Republicans vote much more often than not to my liking.

If there is a major split, if people don´t vote (i mean, if MORE people don´t vote) and the House goes blue and the Senate stays blue, all committees are headed by Dem/Lefties (and they are moving harder and harder Left), --think 2009+ with the Executive in the hands of a totalitarian with dictatorial, tyrannical impulses and media grovelling at his feet, we have no hope.

Fight harder! "Keep Calm and Carry On!" Hold on to that banner of Truth. Let´s not be "Sunshine Patriots".

I think the destruction of the Republican Party is what this is all about. This country can´t be destroyed if there´s a party, full of supporters, that believes in the founding principles.
Think about what we have seen in the last 5 years:
obamacare to destroy our medical system.
Pink Panty Brigades to destroy our military
Now we have PRIEBUS et al out to take care of the party by alienating the base.
Each and everyone one of these USED TO BE the best there was in the world.... by 2016, not so.

So he ´´didn´t answer´´ the president´s call? Oooooh, the guy has stones, eh? /s/

Marco Rubio just cemented his legacy with the ´rats as the ´´go along to get along´´ politician he is and barring a run for the presidency, he´ll remain in Congress for a long, long time.

Sarah´s remarks were achingly spot-on: I, too, hope it was worth it, Marco - you really just stabbed us in the back and for what it´s worth, cross my name off your list of contributors/supporters; I´ll send my money to Colonel West.

It´s not quite that bad, #28. Many on this site are disappointed, regretful and angry. The causes are many and are heartfelt. It will get sorted out before we vote again. I have as little patience as you seem to have with whining about what might have been and threats to vote third party. Those who refuse to vote for a Republican ever again may stay home, may write in a name or may try to find a third party. The rest of us will work for our favorites, vote for the one who is still standing on election day and, God willing, will be able to see victory in important places.

Any Republican politician with half a brain could look at the numbers in Presidential elections going back to Carter.
Reagan did amnesty and got a low # of hispanic votes.
Look at every election and it is plain to see that hispanics vote overwhelmingly for democrats in every Presidential election.
Sucking up to them is suicide. They must be won over by IDEAS and Principles..but unfortunately, they are interested in free stuff, which is not a Republican core principle and I hope it never becomes one.

In the battle for the soul of our nation, because of the RINOs, Republicans are constantly fighting with one hand tied behind it´s back. There is no significant dissent amongst Democrats, but the Republicans continue to ignore their base and chase the apathetic Independents and the racial demographics that the "experts" declare are necessary to win.

This running narrative about moderates putting up mediocre candidates and imposing them them on conservatives gets tiresome after a while. Could someone name the Great Conservative Superhero who could have led us to victory in ´08 or ´12 but was wrongfully deprived of nomination by an evil cabal of moderates? And as disappointing as Rubio has proven to be, was there a better choice to be made in the 2010 Senate race?

It´s all about making the best of what we have to choose from.

Nos. 24 and 14. There is no mystery about it. Jeb Bush´s wife is Mexican. I has nothing to do with One World.

Rubio owes a lot to Jeb and his sons who worked hard to elect him.

Rubio also has the second generation American disease - an inability to separate onesself from a sense of guilt that one is safely here and it would be selfish to deny others.

Don´t hold your breath for West to run. I doubt he can win a state wide vote. To many damnyakee liberals in the state. Add to that the huge hispanic population in southeast Florida and Orlando. Most are dependent on some type of social welfare. Maybe the conservative democrat voters might vote for West, but that is iffy. Florida is sinking into a socialist utopia, I´m afraid.

Cliven Bundy marched into my life one Friday morning in January 1992 in a protest bound for a federal courthouse in Las Vegas. He held up one side of a street-width banner that asked, “Has the West been won or has the fight just begun?” To my great relief, just as Bundy promised, nearly 200 ranchers from all over the state marched behind him, yelling “Property rights!” Nearly a mile later, the marchers fell silent and filed into the courtroom where Wayne Hage of Pine Creek Ranch faced arraignment for the felony of cleaning brush out of his ditches without a

The Republican challenger to Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thinks nobody should spend 47 years in Washington. Dr. Milton Wolf, a diagnostic radiologist from the Kansas City area, on Wednesday released a television ad criticizing Roberts for his nearly five decades in the nation´s capital. "After 47 years in Washington, Kansas is a distant memory for Pat Roberts," the ad opens, before pivoting to Wolf´s daily routine as a Kansas doctor. The ad goes on to mention Wolf´s plan to "repeal and replace Obamacare," "fight wasteful spending" and pass congressional term limits. After his tenure, Wolf´s ad promises, he´ll return home to Kansas.

I love that picture from the Bundy Ranch. You know the one that I’m talking about: I’m talking about all of them. I love the horn-handed Cowboys, with real, honest trail dirt on them; I love the American flags; I love the sagebrush; and I love the rebellion-- as in civil, non-violent disobedience. And the question now is, where does this go? Rebellion typically starts after a period of lassitude and hopelessness in the face of overwhelming power. Populations spend years, even decades muttering under their breath about abuses of power, but feel ineffectual to enact real reform. Then one bright day, a fruit stand

In the movie Ben-Hur, Charlton Heston was wrongly accused by government and sentenced to life in prison/slavery. Soldiers marched chained Heston along with other prisoners through the desert without food or water. Heston collapsed, unable to take another step. Jesus was passing by with a small caravan. He walked over and gave Heston a drink of water, which gave Heston the strength to continue. Note: Heston´s unfair ordeal was not over. He would endure much before his release and ultimate victory at the end of the movie. I view the Obama administration’s BLM retreat from bullying rancher Cliven Bundy and the patriots

Paul and Bush Duke It Out

Presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Jeb Bush got in a slight scuffle over immigration yesterday. Bush called illegal immigration “an act of love” committed by people wanting to support their families, adding that most of them are here illegally because they can’t get in legally. This ignited some Republican rage and Rand Paul got his chance to respond: “You know, I think he might have been more artful, maybe, in the way he presented this,” said Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said on ABC’s This Week. “But I don’t want to say, ‘oh, he’s terrible for saying this.’ If it were

Republicans are famously divided on immigration reform, but Democrats pretty much unanimously support it. There´s a reason for that. In stark, partisan political terms, continuing the high level of immigration of recent decades, and certainly increasing immigration as envisioned by many reformers, will result in more Democrats winning more elections in coming years

GOP Needs to Pledge to Clean

There is a culture of sleaze in Washington that´s worse than ever. Too-big, all-powerful government not only cripples the freedoms of the regular people who have to live under it, it also creates a whole shadow infrastructure dedicated to working it to the advantage of the elite and the connected. Three recent stories illustrate the point: Matt Continetti´s piece about the divorce of lobbyists Tony and Heather Podesta shows how connected insiders can make out like bandits in Obama´s Washington. The Podestas have offered their vast and wealthy clients little in the way of objective value. Rather, they´ve gotten rich just

By now most people are familiar with the potentially deadly situation emerging at the Bundy ranch in Nevada. Right now, the back-story is not nearly as important as the immediate necessity to de-escalate this life-and liberty threatening situation, although it does play an important role and must be addressed. The fact that this situation could have been pulled from the script of the 1974 movie Chinatown or any of the Godfather movies is well known and must be exposed, but not before immediate action is taken to assure the preservation of life and liberty. The current critical nature of the crisis cannot

Two of Nevada’s top elected leaders are riding to the rescue of a rancher whose decades-long range war with the federal government has reached a boiling point in recent days. The federal Bureau of Land Management has surrounded the Clark County ranch of Cliven Bundy with armed officers, helicopters and four-wheel drive vehicles. Last week, they began seizing cattle found grazing on adjacent federal lands in violation of a law meant to protect an endangered desert tortoise. “No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
