Governor Palin Just Put the GOP on Notice – Updated





Wow! Governor Palin just posted the following on Facebook, along with a link to the article over at Breitbart that we posted last night:

Please take a look at the article linked below to understand how the amnesty bill the Senate passed yesterday is a sad betrayal of working class Americans of every ethnicity who will see their wages lowered and their upward mobility lowered too. And yet we still do not have a secured border. This Senate-approved amnesty bill rewards lawbreakers and won’t solve any problems – as the CBO report notes that millions of more illegal immigrants will continue to flood the U.S. in coming years.

Great job, GOP establishment. You’ve just abandoned the Reagan Democrats with this amnesty bill, and we needed them to “enlarge that tent” of which you so often speak. It’s depressing to consider that the House of Representatives is threatening to pass some version of this nonsensical bill in the coming weeks.

Once again, I’ll point out the obvious to you: it was the loss of working class voters in swing states that cost us the 2012 election, not the Hispanic vote. Legal immigrants respect the rule of law and can see how self-centered a politician must be to fill this amnesty bill with favors, earmarks, and crony capitalists’ pork, and call it good. You disrespect Hispanics with your assumption that they desire ignoring the rule of law.

Folks like me are barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party – and it’s precisely because flip-flopping political actions like amnesty force us to ask how much more bull from both the elephants in the Republican Party and the jackasses in the Democrat Party we have to swallow before these political machines totally abandon the average commonsense hardworking American. Now we turn to watch the House. If they bless this new “bi-partisan” hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines.

Here is the article referenced above:
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/06/25/Palin-Defend-American-Workers

 

Update: Governor Palin also added this SarahPAC image dedicated to the GOPe:
Great Job

Update II: Governor Palin sent the following tweet earlier today:

The link goes to a Breitbart article indicating that Barack Obama called Marco Rubio to "congratulate" him:

On Friday, President Obama took time out from his trip to Africa to call members of Senate’s so-called “Gang of Eight,” including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), to congratulate them on the immigration reform bill that passed the Senate on Thursday in a 68-32 vote.

Obama was unable to actually reach Rubio. Obama also called Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) to push him to take up the Senate’s immigration reform package.

    Man alive! She’s swinging that night stick at the whole lot of halibuts in D.C. This article is definitely a kick butt, Oops up side the head!

    • Resettozero

      Swing away, Sarah!

    • Laddie_Blah_Blah

      Sarah has really touched a nerve center of the American conservative base. Even Allahpundit shows signs of intelligent life between the ears on his normally pointy little head:

      http://hotair.com/archives/2013/06/28/palin-if-the-house-sells-out-on-immigration-too-it-might-be-time-to-leave-the-gop/

      Read the comments section, too. No one taking up for Rove, American Crossroads, "No Labels," crony corporatism, identity politics, pork barrel pig slop, Marco Rubio, the GOPe, etc., etc., etc. – nobody swallowing any of it, any more.

      And guess who most of them want to see start a 3rd party?

      • Norcalo

        Please say "New Party" Which, in fact, would be a good name for it.

        Saying "3rd Party" is like saying "second fiddle," except worse.

        Thank you.

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    Thanks, Stacy!!

    The Governor has issued an ULTIMATUM; THE DIE IS CAST.

    Here is a post that I made a little while ago on the Open Thread.

    This is a great morning, guys–God bless!!

    FROM OPEN THREAD:

    And this ending part of her FB post is just brilliant, IMHO:

    "If they bless this new ‘bi-partisan’ hyper-partisan devastating plan for amnesty, we’ll know that both private political parties have finally turned their backs on us. It will then be time to show our parties’ hierarchies what we think of being members of either one of these out-of-touch, arrogant, and dysfunctional political machines."

    Notice her use of the words "PRIVATE (emphasis mine) political parties."

    Political parties should serve some PUBLIC good, some COMMON good.

    They have become enclaves for selfish, petty, dare I even say TRAITOROUS private individuals, who only want to line their own filthy pockets, and the American People be damned!!

    This is MY PRESIDENT, guys.

    THIS IS AMERICA’S REAL PRESIDENT!!!

    SARAH PALIN 2016, FOR YOU, FOR ME, FOR ALL OF OUR GREAT AND BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY!!!

    • Banda31

      These people, these "leaders’ are treating Us, We The People, as if We do not exist, they do not listen to a word We say. They think We are stupid and We don’t know what’s good for Us, they know better than Us. We say We do not want something, that it’s not right, they go right ahead and give it to Us, just as they did with ObamaCare. I say too, ENOUGH of that!

      • BrianusBerkleianus

        Amen, Banda–ENOUGH!!

      • oldandtired

        I was on another site and someone was saying that they were going to try to get a re-call going on Flake and McCain.

  • cudaforever

    Sarah Palin is an ARMY of ONE !!
    I saw that over at rightscoop and I love it !!

  • Tom Ferriday

    Sarah was BRILLIANT.

    She pointed out the obvious. In their pathetic attempt to appeal to a race of voters who will NEVER vote for them, the GOPe sold out the white middle and working class voters that made the GOP a powerhouse in the 80s and 90s. Furthermore, middle class families will see their taxes skyrocket to pay for "legalized" Mexicans to go to their schools and utilize public services that should be reserved for them. Working class Americans will lose their jobs due to competition from cheap Mexican labor. Furthermore, the GOPe just supported the foundation of a permanent underclass of ignorant, uninformed, illiterate and unskilled people who will never vote for Republicans, no matter what they say and do.

    I have never seen the GOP lose every battle and capitulate at every opportunity. And anyone stupid enough to think John "Crybaby" Boehner will put up a fight is on bad drugs. This is the same man who recently supported raising taxes on middle class families, which should make him an apostate in the GOP. He’s done nothing to nail Obama on any of his scandals, has never cut funding for Obamacare, and won’t say or do anything to rankle the Eastern Establishment. Do you think Boehner will stand up to the impending onslaught of charges on "racism" by fighting the Rubio Bill? Why would you think he’d suddenly man-up now? Heck, Michele Bachmann and some others have already said that Boehner plans to support the Rubio bill when the House and Senate meet in conference.

    The constant adherence to the Karl Rove Playbook on How to Lose All Elections is going to cost the GOP the House in 2014. God only knows what will happen to our country then.

    • hope4palins

      "The Karl Rove Playbook on How to Lose All Elections". ROFL. I did a whole long rant in the reply section of an article @ American Thinker on the possibility of a Bush/Palin ticket in 2016 that golfmom linked to in the Open Thread. Lord how I wish I could have "borrowed" that from you and worked it in. I had fun anyway though, and I feel a LOT better now that I got it off my chest.. That said, that label you just created is Priceless, just Priceless. The more that sad sack of political foolishness can be mocked, the better. Thank you. I just wish I could give it a bunch more up arrows.

  • Victoria Richardson

    One of the best facebook posts I have seen and read from Governor Palin. Both political parties are working together to undermine voters and backstabbing the base for greed. I can’t put into words how awesome this facebook post was. A revolution is starting.

    • hope4palins

      Ditto.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      "A revolution is starting."–yes!!

      AMERICAN REVOLUTION II !!!!

      • jerseymark

        The Palin Tsunami is building

  • section9

    This was a huge post by Palin

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen!!

    • cudaforever

      EPIC !!

  • PhilipJames

    This is the closest we have seen her come on the idea of a third party. I guess the plan is to let the Republicans either smarten up or drive her and millions of others out of the party.

    • hope4palins

      Given their tin ear (seems to be a prerequisite to be part of the GOPe) they will probably ignore the warning. I tend to agree with Rush, they want us to be gone. Their stupidity is that they believe that will actually help them. Keep it up and they and the Whigs will be able to run simultaneous Party Conventions with identical audience levels. Zero.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Bingo!!!–Thanks, Philip!!

    • Norcalo

      Please say "New Party," don’t say "3rd Party."

  • joscefi

    Sitting, as I do, outside the big box of marbles, I still find it incomprehensible that in 2008, Sarah’s ability, intellect and character were viciously derided, whilst Obama’s were being touted, and praised. Can we stop the pretending already, jettison the backbiting imbeciles, and the Democrats too, and form a Palinista Party for 2016, if Obama hasn’t burned it all down by then?

  • Steve_Flesher

    Amazing post, thanks for posting Stacy!

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Amen!!!

  • Laddie_Blah_Blah

    You want to know why the GOPe has several new members, e.g. Rubio, Flake, et. al.? Here’s why:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/06/28/know-who-wants-republicans-to-pass-immigration-reform-major-republican-donors/

    "The Republican party faces a dilemma. The Senate — with the help of 14 Republicans — passed an immigration reform plan on Thursday. The Republican-controlled House has pledged not to even take that proposal up, opting instead for the possibility of their own plan later this summer or sometime this fall.

    "One voice lost in this battle over what the right, next move is on immigration for the party? The major donors of the party who serve as the bundlers of presidential campaigns and the funders of super PACs. And, those big check-writers have a very clear preference: They want a deal done."

    See? It’s not complicated. Sarah called these bast*rds out in her very first, rip-roaring speech at the 2008 GOP convention. The GOPe corporatists want their political cronies to provide them with an abundant supply of cheap labor.

    The WaPo obligingly conveys the GOPe crony corporatist spin, which could have been taken, verbatim, from "Morning Joe" or directly, from Karl Rove of American Crossroads. Oh, wait, they do go straight to the mouthpiece of the GOP corporatist sellouts, American Crossroads:

    "“Thoughtful people in the donor community fully recognize that our Republican Party is seen by many as intolerant, and that we will never again win a national election unless we embrace policies more appealing to the large, growing, and influential group of Hispanics in our country,” said Fred Malek, a major GOP donor and fundraiser for the party.

    "Malek’s sentiment was expressed repeatedly in conversations we had over the past 48 hours with both big GOP givers and those who run in the world of those sorts of donors.

    "The prime reason for the support for immigration reform among well-heeled givers? Political pragmatism.

    “It’s not just about appealing to Hispanic voters, though that’s important,” said Steven Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads, the largest conservative super PAC in 2010 and 2012. ”There’s a concern among major donors that the party is starting to seem out of touch in an increasingly diverse and dynamic America.”

    Oh, boy! Where to begin? Those guys are so credible, aren’t they? When the WaPo uses Rove’s bought and paid for voice as the be-all and end-all of the debate, then you can gauge just how corrupt they have both become. You see, "thoughtful people in the donor community" care about "political pragmatism."

    If they cared about political pragmatism they would not have alienated so many in their own party, as well as law-abiding citizens of all backgrounds who have lost all respect for these self-serving, self-seeking bloodsuckers. If they cared about political pragmatism they would not have blown $1 bn of their own money on Rove’s ill-conceived and utterly failed 2012 GOPe campaign. Political pragmatism? How about political nitwittery, instead?

    Oh, there’s more. The WaPo just can’t help but condescend to explain things to those of us who just don’t understand things as well as the ultimate GOPe buffoon, AKA Karl Rove:

    "(Sidenote: Pragmatism is a defining trait of the really big givers within the GOP, a fact that differentiates them from major Democratic donors who are, by and large, motivated by ideology not realpolitik.)

    "The question is what effect — if any — the opinion of these major donors can or will have on Republicans in Congress. The entire Republican Senate leadership voted against the “Gang of 8? plan but, as one well-connected GOP operative noted, none of them spoke out aggressively against the bill — choosing instead to simply vote “no.” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has been adamant that he will only bring up immigration legislation that has the support of the majority of his Republican conference and it’s hard to imagine any bill with a “pathway to citizenship” gaining that sort of support."

    See the implied threat there? Those guys could just take their marbles and go home. Their money is available, but the hired hands in Congress have got to keep their part of the deal, see? And the interests of working people who cannot find jobs, now, or can barely make ends meet, now, or who voted for those cretins and get this, in return? Not a word about them. They don’t have any money, so they don’t have any say in Karl Rove’s world.

    Finally, just so us morons out here don’t quite get the idea, Marco Rubio is going to be the 2016 nominee, whether we like it or not. Karl and his well-heeled cronies have already made the decision for us, and the WaPo approves:

    "It’s hard to imagine these donors withholding their contributions — and bundling abilities — from 2016 GOP candidates who voted against immigration. But, for those people who automatically assume Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) loses if no immigration legislation becomes law, that may not be the whole story. Rubio could well emerge as a favorite of these major donors for trying to move the party forward — and more toward the ideological center."

    Those guys can waste their money, again, on Rubio, like they did on loser Romney, but Rubio is already bought and paid for by Karl Rove’s corporatist cronies, so he gets no votes from us. They pick and vote for the losers, not us. We have someone else in mind.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      Right on, Laddie!

      As Greg Gutfeld said yesterday:

      The PEOPLE want BORDERS;

      The POLITICIANS want BODIES!!

      • friskyness

        Well, they can have Rubio/Jeb in 2016, and they will lose…………money well spent?????????????

    • palintologist

      I’ll go one better – Rubio switches to a D, for a promise by his new buddy Shmucky Schumer, to dump Hillary and give the Lefties another "historic first" candidate: Marco the Rube.

    • Budvarakbar

      Today’s post maybe sheds some light on the blackout from hannuttie last night

      • Laddie_Blah_Blah

        Maybe Ailes did not bargain for what Sarah is providing. He’s got to pay her, anyway, and he may keep her off his cable station, but he can’t shut her up. OTH, Sarah will be must-see TV any time he wants to jack up his ratings. This is win/win for Gov. Palin.

    • Audrey_I

      The Washington Post is America’s Democrat Party Newspaper. When the Washington Post publicizes comments, from Karl Rove and other elite Republicans, it is obvious that we have ONE political party and two factions.

  • IndieDogg

    Is there a three-barrel shotgun?
    I’d say Sarah just unloaded both barrels but that sounds so inadequate.

    Time to rock the boat and see how much political lard we can toss overboard. Ballast is only good when you don’t want to soar.

    PALIN 2016
    The New GOP or the American Grizzly Party
    Either one works for me.

    • BrianusBerkleianus

      I love it, IndieDog–THREE-BARREL SHOTGUN!!

    • Budvarakbar

      Any reference to GOP is OUT!!!

    • Audrey_I

      I have a Browning automatic shotgun that holds five shells.
