PALIN WARNS HOUSE GOP: DON'T BETRAY WORKING CLASS BY PASSING AMNESTY
Breitbart ^ | June 28, 2013 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 06/29/2013 11:19:18 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

One day after the Senate passed its immigration reform bill, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin warned the House on Friday to not betray working class Americans by passing a bill that will lower wages and raise unemployment without securing the borders.

"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," Palin wrote in a Facebook post that also urged Americans to read the Breitbart News piece that detailed the importance of the working class vote. "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."

Palin called the "amnesty bill the Senate passed yesterday" a "sad betrayal of working class Americans of every ethnicity who will see their wages lowered and their upward mobility" as well.

"And yet we still do not have a secured border," she said. "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."

Palin said independent-minded conservatives like her are "barely hanging on to our enlistment papers in any political party" because the "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."

Palin has signaled in recent weeks that she is not going to allow Washington politicians to betray America's working class, especially if they specifically campaigned to put border security first and vote against amnesty.

"She told Breitbart News last week that, for instance, she would not mind if Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) were primaried for reneging on their campaign promises to not vote for amnesty and secure the border first."

My 2 cents,

It`s a one party State now.

The difference? One party thinks it can run the Beast System more efficiently and save money while the other thinks money is no object.

Time for a 3rd party, splitting the vote be damned.

Anybody who votes for this new amnesty is a traitor in my book, period. Including any in the House who voter for a bill and move it to conference, knowing "the fix is in" and the final result will be amnesty. Traitors all.

If Sarah reads this--I'm asking her to help South Carolina conservatives get rid of Lindsey Graham. The establishment GOP is scared of LG--and will be willing to sell out Republican voters to keep him. He's got Duke Power, and the powerful Democrat trial lawyers from SC and many other states. LG has always been a reliable vote against tort reform. To all you FRs out there who are angry at SC for keeping LG in office, know that we've been trying to figure out how to put him out of office. Honestly, I think I'll vote for his Democrat opponent (although the Dems here usually do not run a serious opposition, so much do they love Lindsey!)

Help. We need help.

From an insider's POV, it will be very tough to take on Graham. He's got a huge war chest from liberals out of state, because he's always on their side and even gives them cover. It is something--how you never meet a South Carolinian who has anything but contempt for Graham, and yet we can't seems to defeat him. People like Joe "you lie" Wilson even support him because he gets help from Lindsey...this is going to be a very tough nut to crack. Gowdey is a great guy, but it took a Tea Party surge to get out the liberal RINO incumbent whose name I forget, kind of a Graham clone in a stupid Indiana Jones fedora.

Palin could be a lot of help. She is popular and could rally the state behind a primary candidate of her choosing. I would even have campaigned for Sanford, someone I despise, against Graham. But notice that she mentions Ayotte and Rubio, but not Graham. Is this from residual loyalty to McCain?

Graham likes to pretend to care about the military because he was a military lawyer for a year or two. Mostly he loves to get the US involved in a lot of costly foreign adventurism. He can do a mean cross examination--he was a lawyer for a small town law firm in Seneca and could get nice personal injury settlements, but practicing law bored him. You'll see him do an impressive line of tough questioning against a liberal for the cameras, then vote however the Democrats tell him to. He'll get troops into Syria, when Syria is doing a nice job of keeping terrorists killing other terrorists. It is nauseating to see LG and McCain try to gin up sympathy for Syrian rebels, when these rebels have started using rape as a weapon against civilian women....

It is interesting to watch Palin circling around McCain. It must be making John real nervous, but she has already lobbed several little bombs right at his feet. She's created the "Leave them to Allah" in re Syria--an unforgettable meme that probably made McCain furious.

But taking on Graham in a primary would be like taking on McCain.

To all you FRs out there who are angry at SC for keeping LG in office, know that we've been trying to figure out how to put him out of office.

1. Start a drive to convince Jim Demint to challenge Lindsey. Heritage Foundation is great, but Jim could do more in the Senate.

2. If the open primary allowing Dims to crossover and vote for Lindsey in the Republican primary is the problem as some have said, maybe the right conservative could run as an independent.

I have staunchly believed third party talk is extremist, and we should fight to fix the Republican party, but after watching Rubio, Ayotte, and Heller among others betray their base, I am not sure this is possible any more. If Boehner caves to the Democrats on this issue, I think some influential, and solid conservatives like Cruz, Lee, and Palin could make a really good start on a conservative party. And, I honestly think, if that party fielded candidates that stood for something they could make an impact very quickly. But at this point, I am beginning to think something drastic has to be done because we can’t trust any of the elected Republicans to stand on what they campaigned for.

I love how she uses expresions such as *working people*. This is what delivers the vote. If you look at most Republican candidates, they look like stiffs. They do not have any humanity and they deliver their speeches as if they are standing in front of a corporate board meeting. They have no soul. Sarah has soul. I hope she is for real and not just another slick talker who knows how to read her audience but based on what I have heard so far it looks like she is the shephardess gathering her conservative flock together. We need more people like her. She can be the center of conservative America. Dump the nasty turncoat Grover Norquist and replace him with Sarah Palin.

It's a one-party state now.

We're better off just taking that as a given, and making sure everyone who votes as a traitor to those who elected him/her is primaried. I know longer care if a dem gets that seat....it's easier to fight than it is when it's your side that puts you down.

Republicans lose everything if the HOR lets the immigration bill come to the floor? Good. Let something Libertarian and constitutional emerge to fight it.

I really don't want to be part of the party of Rubio, Graham, Flake, McCain, Ayotte and the others who traitored us.

Your best bet may be Tea Party Patriots or Senate Conservatives.

Senate Conservatives is the PAC that helped - along with Sarah - to give us Sen Cruz and Sen Lee. (I know, they've also supported candidates who've, sadly, turned out to be lying betrayers - like Rubio and McFlake, but, they also have their redeeming Senator's, too.)

Here's what they've said about Sen Grahamnesty...

Note: SCF will not endorse Lindsey Graham because we have a policy against endorsing incumbents. SCF seeks to identify and elect new leaders to the U.S. Senate.

It's a start. Now, we just need a brave CONSERVATIVE to challenge his sorry bum...paging Trey Gowdy...

I love how she uses expresions such as *working people*. This is what delivers the vote.

I saw the RNC co-Chair, Sharon Day, being interviewed about the RNC group pushing for more women candidates...*Women on Right, Unite!*. She would NOT answer the question of why the RNC did not lift a finger to defend Sarah or Michele Bachmann...when they've been under assault - even by their own party!

She kept gurgling up worn out RNC phrases and platitudes, but would never answer that question.

Also, take a look at the RNC website. It seems to be dedicated to pandering to "groups", rather than even mentioning issues important to Americans. The RNC has become a BIG joke.

Sarah has soul. I hope she is for real and not just another slick talker who knows how to read her audience but based on what I have heard so far it looks like she is the shephardess gathering her conservative flock together.

No need for your concern, FRiend. Sarah is the real deal.

Lots of people say a third party does not stand a chance. But if I recall correctly, Ross Perot had an excellent chance of winning in 94 over the anger about NAFTA. Perot blue it by dropping out of the race for some lame reason. Yeah he got back in but had lost all momentum and looked like a fool for dropping out in the first place.

GOPe better take Sarah very seriously, she is no fool. There are a lot of voters that only know what the MSM tells them however that is changing quickly. I imagine many of those voter will be quite shocked to discover Sarah Palin an very smart lady with uncorruptible principles.

My take is she would pull just about all constitutional conservatives, most of the fiscal conservative and lots of social conservatives from the GOP. I think a lot of working class democrats would follow her too. In short the Reagan coalition.

But the real question the GOPe should be asking themselves is, would anybody even care who the GOPe candidate is with Hilliary and Palin in the race?

Yesterday I asked how come the Republicans can’t attract the no-nonsense, hard working Asian community. They go Democratic.

Perhaps the “working class” angle is an answer. Immigration (legal and illegal) represents competition that will lower living standards for those here. Just ask the drywall installers in California after southern immigration took away their jobs.

Representing the “working class” may work. Even those of us who are threatened by the H1B visas. Industry wants to expand the supply of H1Bs to reduce labor costs.

Not sure which ones are up for reelection in 2014, aside from Linda Graham.

Trey Gowdy would be fabulous in Linda’s US Senate seat.

Alexander (R-TN)
Ayotte (R-NH)
Chiesa (R-NJ)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Flake (R-AZ)
Graham (R-SC)
Hatch (R-UT)
Heller (R-NV)
Hoeven (R-ND)
Kirk (R-IL)
McCain (R-AZ)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Rubio (R-FL)

Not completely.

Your not uncommon opinion is a “non-trollish” concern. There are a number of outstanding representatives in DC working hard for the Constitutional cause. And we need to work harder at getting more of them elected to office.

It’s good to be pissed at the flaccid representation that too often betrays our trusted votes.

It's gotten to the point that you can number principled conservative politicians on the fingers of one hand. I voted for Ryan and his squish running mate solely because of Benghazi. But I'm done giving my vote to these moderate pukes.....completely and irrevocably done.

Good analysis on Grahamnesty, Mamzelle.

You’re right, having Palin personally intercede in the SC race could make the difference, as well as getting the Senate Conservatives Fund and Tea Party Patriots and other groups involved. You are right it would be an uphill battle, but I think it could be done.
