Sounds like Palin is going after the Liberal Elites in the GOP!

Just like she did in Wasilla Alaska
She's going after corruption on both sides of the aisle.

In my research for the film I made on Governor Palin, The Undefeated,
I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at
every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician
would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of
the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really
important, what really matters, is what sets her apart.


Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the
long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He
lives on in spirit and through the work of those he inspired—including,
but not limited to, those who report and contribute at his site.


The Governor has been at the forefront of the fight against the Permanent Political Class and, as such, inspired Peter Schweizer and myself in our work last night on Fox News with Sean Hannity’s specialBoomtown.”
We consider ourselves honored at Breitbart News to have her share with
us her thoughts on the road ahead in this exclusive Q & A.


1. What's next for you?


Short term: I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the
comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American
exceptionalism. That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own
advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message
of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic
and restoring this most exceptional nation. We can't just preach to the
choir; the message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a
larger audience.


Focus on the 2014 election is also imperative. It’s going to be like
2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that
tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional
conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in DC.
DC is out of
touch, obviously. Voices on the right like Mark Levin, Rush, and the
writers here at Breitbart have come out strongly against the “go along
to get along” politicians who wave the white flag before the battle even
begins. We’re not going to be able to advance the cause of limited
constitutional government unless we deal with these big government
enablers on our side. And this all ties into the problem of crony
capitalism and the permanent political class in the Beltway. We need to
consistently take them on election after election – ever vigilant.


As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open. I know the country
needs more truth-telling in the media, and I’m willing to do that. So,
we shall see. And always in the center of it all I have an awesome,
full, exciting, and large family living in a very unique part of America
that keeps me hopping! I love it!


2. Where do you think the country stands at the beginning of the President's 2nd term?


Before the November election I wrote that we all know what
Obama’s second term will look like because we’ve seen his first. I said:
“We know what we will get from a second Obama term. We will get the
same failed policies. We will get Obamacare locked into law. We will get
a debt crisis. We will get more inflation and higher gas prices. We
will get tax increases. We will get fewer jobs. We will get more small
businesses collapsing under the weight of higher taxes and unfair
regulation. We will get more corruption and crony capitalism favoring
the Obama administration’s friends. We will get less domestic energy
development and increased dependence on terrorist sponsoring foreign
regimes for our energy needs. We will get a 'blame America first'
foreign policy that bows to our enemies and snubs our friends like
Israel and leaves America and the world less safe. We will get less
opportunity and security for ourselves and for our children.”


Predicting the future has never been easier because here we are!
Already we see higher taxes, a stagnant economy, the same inflationary
monetary policies, Obamacare looming like a dark cloud over small
businesses, yet another demand for “debt ceiling” increases, continued
stonewalling about the tragic Benghazi attacks, a Secretary of Defense
nominee who has a history of being antagonistic to our ally Israel, and
the attack on our Second Amendment rights by an administration that has
no respect for the Constitution or the separation of powers.


The problem is that some on the Right are now skittish because of the
lost 2012 election. They shouldn’t be. Conservatism didn’t lose. A
moderate Republican candidate lost after he was perceived to alienate
working class Reagan Democrat and Independent voters who didn’t turn out
for him as much as they did for the McCain/Palin ticket in 2008.
Granted, those same voters also didn’t turn out for Obama as strongly
either. We had an election defined by a biased media plus millions of
voters who sat it out in disgust. As long as we allow the media and GOP
establishment to tell us who our nominees must be, we can expect to
lose. I’m not interested in losing. America’s next generation can’t
afford another loss.


3. The MSM have declared both you and the Tea Party dead and buried. Reaction?


I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in
due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to
fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us.

    AND! She's going after the RINOs who have infiltrated Fox News. After Fox cut her out of the schedule for the Republican National Convention, she tore up her contract with them. (Or rather, she declined to renew it, which amounts to the same thing.)

    Better question is why did she make the decision, not that it matters - hell, who really cares at this point, BUT she made millions after she did it so we must conclude it was the correct choice for her. I expect that is why some resent her so much, she was supposed to be on a corner with a sign 'will work for food' and she made mega bucks from speaking fees (which she is contracted to do more of), her books, and investments. She turned down the contract from FOX, so she is either planning to do other things or sit on her bottom. Good for her, a lovely lady much maligned and the focus of hate and smears for far too long. All she did was accept an offer to run for office -- it is time for people to move on and realize she 1. owes them nothing and 2. has done nothing to them to cause this ire and continued slime. Speaks volumes about the people doing it and little about her or her life.

    Well lets compare her to, say, Pelosi who said more than once that we should stop using fossil fuels and use natural gas (you can google that) and that unemployment checks were GREAT drivers of the economy (apparently if we were all unemployed our economy would be soaring), Or Biden - the master of the gaffe, we call them gaffes not rank stupidity when that is what they are but he is a democrat and gets a pass. I will not list as they are too numerous as you well know; or the Congressman who said Guam would tip over - this list is endless and these are people in power.

    No, no one deserves that kind of hate and smearing, no one. The intelligence debate is based on 'analysis' of a 9 min televised broadcast with Couric -- 9 minutes out of nearly 10 hours of interview time, shameful. Her history speaks volumes to her intelligence but never a consideration -- it was just so 'in' to insult, demean, denigrate and sully her.

    I repeat: "All she did was accept an offer to run for office -- it is time for people to move on and realize she 1. owes them nothing and 2. has done nothing to them to cause this ire and continued slime. Speaks volumes about the people doing it and little about her or her life."

    No way. Don't joke. What you say about Obama is not necessarily untrue- especially the part about Democrat refusals of some of his policies, but Palin's calibre is abysmal. At the very least, Obama could probably remember the magazines that he read when asked in an interiew, and describe the job of a VP accurately.

    Gosh I'm so glad you responded...I've been waiting for some misinformed elitist to respond to my post.
    First of all Sarah Palin was a very successful Mayor in Wasilla, did you know that or do you get you're information from Saturday Night Live. Sarah Palin went on to become a very successful Governor in the State of Alaska, not only taking on her own corrupt party but she also took on big oil companies and created a major windfall for Alaska citizens...The abuse she took during her vice-president campaign was unprecedented...She made a few missteps, but let's be real, all the candidates step in it once in a while, it's a grueling thing to go through...
    Now let's talk about Obama, other than killing Osama his time in office has produced absolutely nothing positive for the United States...Obamacare is the biggest mistake in the history of our country (Watch and learn Grasshopper) it'll bite you in the ass someday when you need healthcare and bankrupt the nation at the same time...
    You can not defend anything this bone-head has done so far...Obama is a terrible
    President...
    Sorry for blathering on, but it's been a while since anyone has responded to me in such a idiotic way...Thanks.

    People DYING all over the place, while he goes to play golf!!! He supports the Enemy while telling our ALLIES that he will not support them.
    Companies are going out of business all over the US, because they cannot withstand the weight of taxes and regulations that has been put on them in the last four yrs and now the STUPID Healthcare kicks in and destroys the rest.
    PLEASE. TELL me AGAIN what he has done FOR us. GAVE US PHONES?
