Palin: ‘If Republicans Are Gonna Act
Like Democrats, Then What’s the Use?’

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Posted By:Desert Fox, 6/24/2014 11:23:56 PM

Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity to weigh in on the latest election news, and Palin told Hannity that it would be hard for her to stay with the Republicans and get excited about them if they continue acting like Democrats and rolling over. She took a shot at the “status quo” politics of people like Senator Thad Cochran and said the Eric Cantor upset shows people want strong constitutionalists in power who don’t represent “the man [or] the establishment” in Washington. Hannity asked Palin if she would actually follow through on her previous hints she’d go third party. Palin replied, “If Republicans

Where was she over the weekend, on Monday, today. I saw some of the people who campaigned for McDaniels. Garbage. Is Santorum supposed to drive turnout. If she wants to whine she has to ante up first. She loves to do the endorsements and appearances when all is safe. Get down and dirty for a change Sarah in the final hours. You can drive turnout better than anyone. Where were you today? Where was Ted Cruz. The establishment went whole hog. They pulled out all the stops. Conservatives dialed it in.

Is Sarah finally ready to take the step to support a new party?

I sure hope so. Maybe Thursday evening at the Severville TN Convention Center. Now, that would be a step to restore the Republic.

Just a minor difference: the new party would be a second party to replace the GOP. It can happen if a number of conservative leaders and current office holders jump ship all at once. That is what the Perot effort lacked.

If the Cochran win in MS and the Lankford win in OK hold, then the move toward a new party makes more sense. The GOP Elites simply have too much control over and ability to corrupt the primary process. The Cantor upset will be seen as an anomaly. The general elections, where Democrats will likely not cross over, would be another matter.

Its time to return the favor.

Lets join forces come November, with the Democrats in McConnell´s senate race and the Democrats in Boehner´s district and vote them both out.

We cannot let this pass without retaliation.

It´s obvious that the RINO establishment is so weak they barely beat a TEA Party conservative even with the help of the Democrat Party and the liberal news media.

The corrupt RINOs hoisted themselves on their own petards. It will be interesting to see what Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Col. West and other high profile conservatives do at this point.

One of our most sacred and fundamental rights, the right to vote secretly in any election and have that vote count, has been so corrupted, it has begun to be meaningless. I don´t see how a third party surmounts this obstacle of cheating, crossovers and recounts til one who´s counting wins. It is discouraging, but I will not give up my place in the line of voters.

The Socialist Democrat Party That Won´t Stop Until The US Constitution Is Replaced By Socialism.

The Party Whose Main Mission Is To Affirm The "Good Intentions" Of The Socialist Democrats.

# 1 - if one doesn´t have any idea of what Gov. Palin was doing over the weekend then perhaps it might behoove one to find out instead of always making derogatory remarks about her.

Is it jealousy that drives one to constantly berate her? ´Tis a shame SHE has been so successful in her life and others aren´t.
Built her own path from school Board member to Governor of Alaska, had success with her books--first one stayed on the NYTs Best Seller List 6 or 7 weeks; other two have been successful as well. Oh yes, she was the first Female in the Republican party to be selected as a V-P running mate and pulled the lousy head of the ticket out of a deep hole and had he and his "Oh So Brilliant Consultants" not suspended his campaign so he could fly back to DC because he thought he was SO important and perform he perfected temper tantrum, the WH could have been his home. Gov. Palin did both, increased his money coffers from those supporting HER and raised the team above the idiots who took over the WH. Yes, he screwed that up as she garnered support for the team and had him ahead in the polls.

Is it possible for McDaniel to run a write-in campaign? I mean, Cochran´s probably going to lose because his pet Dems from the primary aren´t going to vote for him in the general and I can´t see McDaniel voters going for him either after everything that´s happened. The will of the voters was stolen in this primary so it´s not like a write-in campaign would be a dirty trick spoiler, it´d be giving the people the chance to vote for the candidate they clearly intended to make it to the ballot.

Also, all voters currently registered as Republicans need to change their registration. Leave the party totally and register as independents or Democrats. Yes, ´rats. Then vote your conscience in the main event. Just don´t let the Pubs take you for granted anymore. What they did in the MS race was beyond the pale and they absolutely should NOT get away with it.

Third party would be nice, but I don´t see much chance in it working. Too many egos wanting to run things and too many dirty tricks from the party machines.

Sometimes it is necessary to hold hands with the devil to get to the other side of the bridge. If the goal is to have a real alternative to the totalitarian socialist Democrat party, then the GOP must be replaced. It will never be reformed. Thus it may be necessary in the short term to vote against the GOP in order to kill it off so that in the long run it can be replaced by a party that truly supports lower taxes, less spending, less borrowing, and a severely limited federal government.

It is really sad that the Republicans and Tea Party can´t get their act together. I´m to the point that I´m not sure I want to be associated with either one. Not to worry, I´m not voting for the Democrats.

Remember when George W Bush said he was a compassionate conservative? I do understand what he was talking about. I think that is what the Republicans are all about. Here comes the Tea Party and they are saying "wait a minute" and want reforms.

I don´t understand why the Republicans and Tea Party can´t work together? It would be for the greater cause.

I have been a supporter of Sarah Palin but I do agree with #1. She needed to be there. You can´t just talk the talk, we need to walk the talk.

We need to get the Tea Party and the Republicans energized not fractured. There are some very good Republicans and Tea Party people.

Oh, the GOP elites have figured out how to ´stick together and win´. However,that phrase has now come to mean that enlisting the help of Lofo democrats results in a continuation of big government retaining power for power´s sake.

A win for Thad Cochran is the same as a win for Charlie Rangel is the same as a win for Thad Cochran - and own and own.

What transpired in the Mississippi Senate run-off is a red line for many conservatives across the country, because the Republican Party establishment essentially took a civil war and escalated it to a war for independence. It’s one thing to oppose your base in a primary. It’s entirely another to despicably play the race card against your base, and bolster the legitimacy of the propaganda of our race-baiting opponents on the Left. But that’s exactly what the Kamikaze pilots running the GOP did. As a result, Chris McDaniel won Republican voters handily on Tuesday, but still lost the run-off statewide thanks to

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel is projecting confidence about his campaign´s review of ballots cast in a runoff election he narrowly lost to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran Tuesday ahead of a planned legal challenge to the election results. The campaign is focusing on any ballots cast by individuals who voted in the Democratic primary on June 3, who under Mississippi´s election rules, were not allowed to vote in the Republican primary runoff three weeks later. McDaniel claimed in an interview on Fox News late Thursday that his campaign had identified over 1,000 such votes in Hinds County, which includes a large African

Says Red State’s Leon Wolf, “If any of these bastards want to avoid the fallout they should go on the record.” According to these conversations [with two Republican Senate staffers], some $800,000 was raised for Cochran by his Senate colleagues after the McDaniel victory in the primary’s first round, largely under the rubric of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Despite Hillary Clinton’s disappointing book sales, and a gaffe-prone publicity tour, she remains the prohibitive favorite for the Democratic nomination. If anything, the last few weeks have only confirmed her advantage. Despite these disappointments and mis-steps, there is no substantial anti-Clinton movement building in the party. All we hear are crickets.This is very peculiar, when we think about the role that the Clintons have long occupied in the Democratic party. They have long had a troubled relationship with the left wing. Bill Clinton left it on the outside looking in after the Republican wave election of 1994. He dealt with

The site features a series of cartoon videos as well as “callout cards,” which teens can send to their “textual harassers,” or people who send intrusive text messages.

So there was a ransom in the works. Fox News heard whispers about that soon after Bergdahl was released. So did the Free Beacon, from an intel official who speculated that a criminal syndicate like the Haqqani Network would have been much more interested in cash than prisoners. If you believe BuzzFeed, though, it wasn’t the U.S. government that was considering a ransom, it was Bergdahl’s father. And it’s unclear if it was a pipe dream or something he might have actually pulled off. Robert Bergdahl, the soldier’s father, did not return calls for comment.

WASHINGTON – The White House says the United States will no longer produce or acquire anti-personnel land mines and plans to join an international treaty banning their use. The National Security Council says the U.S. is "diligently pursuing solutions" to join the Ottawa Convention that bans the use, stockpiling, production and transfer of the mines. The council says the announcement was made Friday at a conference in Mozambique to review the treaty. The White House statement does not indicate when the U.S. will join the treaty or specify the size of the U.S. stockpile.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs.

The United States added a stunning 288,000 jobs last month, sending the unemployment rate down to 6.1 percent and the Dow Jones Industrial Average shooting over 17,000 for the first time. June’s job numbers marked the fifth straight month of job gains over 200,000, the best stretch since the 1990s tech boom. A Bloomberg survey of economists expected an increase of 215,000 jobs in June. The unemployment rate dropped .2 percent to 6.1, the lowest since September 2008. May’s job report was also revised upward, showing 224,000 jobs added. The numbers follow strong reports for the Bay State last month, with

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every

As the rest of America rings in Independence Day, the Obama family have yet another reason to celebrate: Malia Obama´s sweet 16th birthday.
