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, well 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 wont 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.

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.
Isn’t amnesty a socialist argument?
I do not trust Boehner, the one time I believed anything Maxine Waters said is when she mentioned Obama has everyone’s file.
Help. We need help.
Watched her being interviewed today on FNC reinforcing her position in protest of the Amnesty bill and threatening further loss of conservatives from the GOP ranks. Palin is not backing down.
Does she have a bodyguard? She might need one If people stop writing her off as the ding bat the rats and media have claimed.
Any chance for someone like Trey Gowdy to challenge him?
America’s “Margaret Thatcher”!
She is one tough Mama Griz who is in touch with middle class Americans, unlike congress.
If Sarah starts a party I’m signing up.
Absolutely! Me too.
And I’ll find money to donate!
I would assume you’ve read Unintended Consequences. The Carl Schaumberg character reminds me of Schumer. From NY, and anti-gun.
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.
Keep typing .. you’re on to something.
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.
