US for Palin Publisher Announces SI GOP County Committee Run

[ad]

GOP County Committee — Devito

With the backing of both American Grizzlies United and the Richmond County Tea Party Patriots I am running to be a GOP County Committee member here on Staten Island. Committee Member is a volunteer elective office that serves a two-year term.

Each Election District can have two Committee Members. Richmond County Tea Party Patriots Core Committee Member Dom D’Arrigo is running alongside me in this district and I gathered signatures for both our candidacies. Since the office is for a political party, the Primary Election is also the General Election. GOP County Committee members meet twice per year, though Tea Party Patriots — backed members, such as D’Arrigo and myself will be meeting once per month. The County Committee ratifies (or not) the candidates chosen by the GOP Executive Committee.

Walk lists and campaign literature for Devito for GOP County Committee

For many years, County Committee members had been merely rubber-stamping the Executive Committee’s candidate choices. This practice is key component to how the Republican Party got saddled with so many RINOs. This will not change until the rubber-stamping stops. As I wrote in my literature,

“I believe our candidates should adhere to these principles:”

  • The Constitution and all its Amendments is the supreme law of the land. The Constitution is absolutely not negotiable.
  • A Republican believes in limited government, low taxes, free markets, strong national defense, and a culture that promotes life and human dignity.
  • The candidate’s principal desire should be to serve We the People.

I continued…

If elected, I will only ratify candidates who follow the Constitution and adhere to the planks of our party’s platform. I will not go along to get along or bow to peer pressure by rubber-stamping the Executive Committee’s choices.

I will work to build our new first party from the bottom up as President Reagan called on us to do 38 years ago. I will work to ensure that our banner is Bold Colors — no pale pastels — and represents values that we will not compromise, regardless of whether it may be expedient, convenient, or earns the good will of elites in the GOP establishment.

If not now, when?

The Time for Choosing is Now.

Ordinary people can make a difference.

GOP County Committee candidates must gather signatures of 5% of the registered Republicans in the election district. For the 61st Assembly District, 10th Election District in which I am running, 103 voters are registered Republicans. To be safe, I gathered twice the required amount or 10 signatures in four hours over a two-day period.

Rep. Schweikert on SarahNET Radio: Even Left Losing Obama Blinders

SarahNET-Radio-O4PStates

Rep. David Schweikert (R), AZ-6 said on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla that the targeting scandal involves not just the IRS, but other agencies such as the Forestry Department and the EPA. Along with Paul Gosar (R), AZ-4, Trent Franks (R), AZ-8, and Matt Salmon (R), AZ-5, he will be hosting a public Town Hall on July 1 to discuss the scandal with constituents. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin expressed her support of the Town Hall in a Facebook Status post and had endorsed both Reps. Schweikert and Gosar in 2010. Rep. She re-endorsed Rep. Gosar in 2012 and both men re-elected.

Rep. Schweikert said these scandals are a result of big government because the “number one objective of any large organization is” its own self-preservation.

Among other things, the Town Hall will address the EPA’s demand that a power plant adopt an expensive operational change that will result in higher energy and water rates and even affect agreements with Native American groups in the Southwest.

Scholla referenced a poll which highlights Americans’ distrust of the federal government and the feeling our liberties are under attack. He asked Rep. Schweikert if he had enough help in D.C. “No, but it is fascinating finding even members of the left pulling the blinders off and seeing what this administration is up to.” He said the mainstream media was complicit until the Associated Press’ phones were wiretapped.

The Town Hall will be held in Prescott, AZ and details are available at the four representatives’ websites.

Rep. Schweikert said it is no longer enough to go to meetings and rallies. We need to get involved in campaigns and get the message out to the neighborhoods. He said leftists know the ballot box is the way to gain control; we need to use it to defend the Constitution.

Steel Resolve: Status Quo has Got to Go

In her weekly Steel Resolve segment, Steelman discussed how the Farm Bill failed to pass because of an unwitting alliance of Tea Partiers and Democrats over Food Stamps. She said the practice of burying unrelated items in legislation has led to out-of-control spending. She said House Republicans should work to eliminate this legislative practice.

David Schweikert is the guest on The Palin Radio Update with Kevin Scholla! The Arizona Congressman will take part in an important Congressional Field Hearing in Prescott, Arizona, next month to discuss the IRS and other abuse scandals and to hear from constituents. Schweikert will be joined by Paul Gosar, Trent Franks, and Matt Salmon. Tune in for a preview about this event that Sarah Palin calls “a PERFECT way to kick-off the Fourth of July week”. Governor Palin returns to Fox News Channel in grand style. A Louisiana lawmaker is highlighted by Palin after ditching the Democrats.

Richmond County Tea Party Patriots Protest IRS Office

rctp-5-21-2013-o4pstates

Tea Party groups nationwide today protested IRS harassment of them and other conservative groups. Richmond County Tea Party Patriots was no exception, holding a small protest at high noon outside of Borough Hall which houses a local IRS office. Passersby were mainly supportive of the protest.

In an interview with the Staten Island Advance, “Bobby Zahn, president of the Richmond County Tea Party Patriots, called the IRS actions ‘deplorable, yet expected.’”

485471_10200198869676658_2077741161_n

“Their attempt to chill the efforts of those they politically disagree with will backfire as groups like the RCTPP will not be intimidated, but rather have their resolve renewed and refocused,” he said.

In a Facebook status, Zahn expressed his disappointment with the Staten Island Tea Party for not being present at the rally. “I have to say I am very disappointed. Normally I try not to go down this road but the SITP should have come out today and joined us at the IRS office at 10 Richmond Terrace. I think it is bad enough that they don’t support our efforts, but this was not our effort. This was a nationwide effort coordinated by Tea parties all over the country,” Zahn wrote.

American Grizzlies United did not have representation at the Patriots’ protest due to full-time work commitments, but issued this statement:

“Across the country today concerned Americans came together to take a stand against the growing mistrust of Big Government. From coast to coast citizens who have had enough of the IRS corruption and misbehavior stood together demanding transparency and basic decency. American Grizzlies United stands with these good citizens who simply want a government that is trustworthy, credible, and sincere.”

As previously reported, the IRS has harassed American Grizzlies United via “forms not filed” or “late filed” notices on timely filed Form 8872 each quarter.

@StrongTea1776, @AGUGrizzlies Back @LisaGforNYC for NYC Council

agu-o4p-white-o4pstates

Richmond County Tea Party Patriots endorsed Lisa Giovinazzo for NYC City Council District 50 at a press conference on April 30 in Staten Island’s Von Briesen Park. American Grizzlies United announced its support of her candidacy immediately following the Tea Party Patriots’ announcement.

Bobby Zahn, President of the Richmond County Tea Party Patriots gave a Palinesque endorsement speech that lasted 3:12.

American Revolution Site Chosen for Announcement

DSC_0005

“We’re standing here today gathered near the gates of Fort Wadsworth, because this site played an important part in the American Revolution. It’s this patriotic spirit that inspired Tea Party groups like ours to organize in defense of our liberties — liberties that are under assault from career politicians who want to run our lives,” Zahn said. “Here in our own city — especially in our own city — the government has been captured by the idea that they can tell us what we can eat, what we can drink, what we can say and how to act. Up until now, there has not been a single strong voice in our legislature opposed.”

DSC_0009

“We have gone along to get a pothole repaired or to get our names on a trash can. As liberty-minded conservatives, we believe people know better than government how to run our own lives. This is why we favor citizen legislators over career politicians. Frankly, we were appalled by the next-in-line good-old-boy mentality that was being thrust upon us in an attempt to give us no choice but a career creature of the system,” he said.

DSC_0012

Peer of the Electorate, Not the Ruling Class

“Lisa Giovinazzo is not a bureaucrat jumping to the next title through seniority. She’s a private sector person — a peer of the electorate — not the ruling class. Lisa Giovinazzo says everything a conservative wants to hear, but that’s not really what’s important,” Zahn said. He continued, “what’s more important than what she says is her demonstrated willingness to stand up to the system — even to the elites in her own party who are trying to keep her down. Given this, there is no questioning Lisa Giovinazzo’s resolve to buck the system and City Hall — a system that most sane people recognize is woefully broken.”

Staten Island’s Sarah Palin?

“Of course, she arrives on the scene with an impeccable resume for a citizen legislator. She’s a mother, a wife, a former White House correspondent, a professor, a community activist, and a small business owner. So, she really understands us. This is who we are. These are the same things that we are.”

DSC_0017

“As I said, she’s appeared to those who she’s asking for their vote, not appeared to the political elite. She’s also a veteran in the trenches of electoral politics.”

DSC_0019

“For years, she’s been fighting for conservative principles by helping to elect Republicans to office. When the government stops answering to the people, we need to send regular people to the legislature to fix it, not a bureaucrat who already works there.”

DSC_0025

“There is no doubt in our view that Lisa Giovinazzo is the clear choice for conservative-minde Republican voters, and the citizen that we need in City Council. Therefore, we are very pleased to be here today with Lisa to declare our unwavering support,” Zahn said.

Giovinazzo Accepts Tea Party Patriots’ Endorsement

DSC_0026

“It is my pleasure to accept your endorsement. I think the Staten Island Tea Party Patriots are a wonderful group of people who share strong values and recognize our freedoms. I applaud the efforts of your party in particular — the people standing here — has been truly focused on the issues that are important, not just the issues that are popular, and I’m very grateful to have your support,” Giovinazzo said.

“I know that you’ll be an integral part of my campaign. Many of you have already volunteered, and supported me at the headquarters, walking in the streets, and I really look forward to getting to know each and every one of you better than I do already and I’m very, very thankful for your support,” she said.

DSC_0038

Tom Wrobleski of The Staten Island Advance covered the press conference and asked Zahn how Richmond County Tea Party Patriots will be supporting Giovinazzo. Zahn said a number of his members are already walking door-to-door and volunteering. He plans on holding a fund-raiser for her in his backyard and said the organization plans to give her any type of support she needs. Wrobleski also referred to AGU’s backing of Giovinazzo in his story.

Why we Have Two Tea Parties on Staten Island

DSC_0040

Wrobleski asked Zahn about formation of Richmond County Tea Party Patriots. As previously reported, “the Richmond Tea Party Patriots were formed out of dissatisfaction with the Staten Island Tea Party’s alliance with the local Republican Party establishment, and the performance of Congressman Michael Grimm who in the main has abandoned the conservative values he ran on. Rep. Grimm is, however, assisting Giovinazzo by walking door-to-door with her and his mentor, Guy Molinari is Giovinazzo’s campaign manager, which she disclosed to the group.”

“I don’t think we have a Staten Island Tea Party. That was long-gone, shut-down, shut-up and put out when Frank Santarpia took a job with Mr. Oddo, and he went against all principles of a Tea Party,” Lisa Mercaldo, a member of Tea Party Patriots said. Mercaldo also sits on the Republican Executive Committee and said she never even met Giovinazzo’s opponent Steve Matteo. “I don’t even know what the man looks like. We are supposed to vet the candidate, we are supposed to interview the candidate, and they are not doing that,” Mercaldo said about Sartapia who is a co-founder of the Staten Island Tea Party and an aide to City Councilman Oddo, who is running for Borough President. Giovinazzo and Matteo are vying for Oddo’s seat. As previously reported, Matteo declined a Richmond County Tea Party Patriots invitation to be publicly vetted.

“I don’t think it really would be a surprise who Frank Sartapia and the Staten Island Tea Party are backing. I mean, how could the guy go against his boss? How could he make a fair judgement and be able to even consider Lisa Giovinazzo,” Zahn aked.

Giovinazzo Challenges Opponent to Debates

DSC_0042

“I’ll say in that regard that everybody you know who is seeking elective office, who wants to be your representative, I once again am welcoming my opponent to a series of debates,” Giovinazzo said.

DSC_0044

“I think it’s important that the constituents of mid-Island see who we are and what we stand for,” she continued.

DSC_0045

“And I think it’s important that we see what we’re made of, so again, I am challenging him to a series of debates. I think it should take place as quickly as possible over the next couple of weeks, because this is a very important election,” Giovinazzo said.

AGU Announces its Support of Giovinazzo

lisag-devito-1

In announcing AGU’s support of of Giovinazzao, I said,

As NY State Coordinator for American Grizzlies United I am looking forward to the Lisa Giovinazzo campaign for New York City Council District 50, and getting the word out to AGU-NY’s volunteers about her candidacy. We are proud to support a candidate who understands the proper role of government and who offers Bold Colors – no Pale Pastels.

LisaG-devito-2

Both Richmond County Tea Party Patriots and AGU publicly vetted Giovinazzo last Thursday during a Richmond County Tea Party Patriots monthly meetup.

Our work continues.

Gov. Palin: tribute to clear-sighted Senator from Bluegrass State

20130418-145307.jpg

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

My tribute to the clear-sighted Senator from the Bluegrass State, Rand Paul…

Rand Paul: The World’s 100 Most Influential People | TIME.com

When the Tea Party movement wanted to send a message to the Senate in 2010, it elected a clear-sighted eye doctor from the Bluegrass State. In a D.C. too often defined by the venal equivocations of a permanent political class more interested in consolidating its own power than in upholding the Constitution or defending the common good, Senator Rand Paul is a voice of reason awakening the public to what must be done to restore our prosperity and preserve the blessings of liberty for future generations.

@AGUGrizzlies Use #NowIsTheTime to Tweet #2A, #Protect2A Messages

AGU-Plead-2nd-O4PStates

The White House under Barack Hussein Obama has hijacked the late President Ronald Wilson Reagan’s campaign slogan, “Now is the Time” to use in a massive Twitter campaign in support of the administration’s blatantly unconstitutional gun control initiatives. The initiative was reported on Reddit, a left-leaning social bookmarking site.

Call to Action

#NowIsTheTime for us to re-hijack this Twitter tag. Conservatives of all stripes are urged to use #NowIsTheTime along with #2A and #Protect2A and carpet-bomb the Twittersphere with pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment Tweets.

#NowIsTheTime for each of us to recruit at least five others to follow suit in on our carpet-bombing of Twitter with this hashtag, #2A, and #Protect2A.

#NowIsTheTime to support, stand with and promote @TedCruz, @SenMikeLee, and @InhofePress are working to #Protect2A. Feel free to add more names to the good list.

#NowIsTheTime to tell @BarackObama, @SenFeinstein, @HarryReid, @NYGovCuomo, and @MikeBloomberg these two Greek words:

IMG_5860

MOLON LABE!

sarah-with-bolt-action

Come and Take it!

#NowIsTheTime to stand up and tell the world:

  • #2A is not about hunting
  • #2A is part of the Bill of Rights
  • It’s a Bill of Rights, Not a Bill of Needs
  • #2A is what gives our Constitution meaning, protects us from tyranny
  • We will #Protect2A from the Nanny / Police statists
  • When we are confronted with evil, we are the first responders and #2A guarantees us our right to defend ourselves
palin-fb8

While, we’re at it #NowIsTheTime to tell the #GOPe at @GOP: You will NOT get a penny in donations from us until you purge those who neither adhere to our Constitution nor the party’s planks. If you don’t #Protect2A or work against #2A we absolutely will not support you; we will work relentlessly to ensure you are voted out of office. We will donate to the Bold Colors candidates and PACs of our choosing: specifically those who #Protect2A and understand #2A is one of our most cherished rights. We will NOT spend our hard-earned money on pale pastels. We will revive, renew, restore, and rebuild this party and our country one way or the other.

#NowIsTheTime to tell Boehner that can’t just start giving conservative speeches in 2014 while he ignores us and the Constitution now by failing to #Protect2A among other things.

#NowIsTheTime to tell the Ruling Class: Enough is Enough. We’re tired of crony capitalism, auto-crony capitalism (so called when politician and crony are the same person), and the infringements on #2A.

Finally, #NowIsTheTime to tell this administration we will not stand by while they jack the words of a man who was a real leader: Ronald Reagan.

Silly Liberals Dead Wrong on Palin Demise

rumors-death-exaggerated-o4pstates

Ed. Note: The lies are continuing with Alinskyites continuing to claim that Fox News “fired” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin when the truth is she left of her own accord to broaden her reach as delineated by Kevin Scholla below and in False Stories Spread on Gov Palin’s Departure from Fox. Now, haters are obsessed with the “$15.85 cost per word” of Gov. Palin’s contract insinuating that she somehow bamboozled the network or that her pay was “excessive.” For three years, Fox News and Gov. Palin had a contract, the terms of which — including compensation — were negotiated and agreed to by both sides. That ends the whole “$15.85 per word” conversation right there.


By Kevin Scholla, PA State Coordinator
American Grizzlies United / Organize4Palin

For someone who is so irrelevant, so yesterday’s news, they sure as heck talk about her a lot. Ever since it was announced that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would not renew her contract with Fox News, the glib, celebratory comments have poured in. The Left wing blogosphere erupted. Mouth breathers in moms’ basements nationwide took to social media. Even the paid political hacks made sure to get their shots in. ‘Ding dong! The Mama Grizzly is dead!’ The only problem is they couldn’t be more wrong.



Just because countless liberals have a weird, visceral hatred for Sarah Palin, doesn’t mean they should incorporate falsehoods into their rants. We get it. You don’t like her. You apparently have an aversion to hardworking, honest, patriotic, Christian women. You have distaste for a daughter, wife, and mother who fought her way up the ranks from mayor to governor to vice presidential candidate, and did so without any special assistance from the establishment. Why these accomplishments would be frowned upon is a topic for another day. Although Dr. Melfi probably had an easier time dealing with Tony Soprano’s inner demons than any therapist who would dare delve in to the sick head of a Palin Derangement Syndrome sufferer. The point here is, when spewing your hate, at least be factual.



The false meme being thrown around since the Palin-Fox News split is that she was canned or let go. Some outlets are asking ‘Is Palin’s Career Over?’. Others have flat out called the race. They talk about a fading star and irrelevancy. Never has the much overused ‘LOL’ been more appropriate than right now. Saying Palin is irrelevant is like saying Casey Anthony is a good mom or Lance Armstrong is known mainly for his honesty. Those who push this narrative not only come off as total buffoons, but they should be first in line for the NFL’s enhanced concussion studies program. Clearly there is some sort of brain injury here.



Howard Kurtz wrote one particularly idiotic article titled ‘Sarah Palin’s fall from media stardom’. Kurtz is the host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources”. Talk about an oxymoron with the emphasis on the last two syllables. In the story, which is nothing more than a classic ‘time to get back at the cool kids’ hit piece, Kurtz assigns Palin snarky monikers like ‘half-term governor’ and ‘exiled politician’. What does that mean? Palin could have run for The White House in 2012 but chose not to. Her decision. Just like she decided to not return to Fox. Palin still has a future in politics if she desires to explore one. Kurtz writes (and I think he’s being serious) that Palin “never quite had the impact of, say, a Karl Rove as a Fox talking head”. He’s right about that. While Palin-endorsed candidates this last election cycle had a 75% success rate, Rove wasted hundreds of millions of dollars, only to post a pathetic 1% positive showing. While Palin warned of death panels and called out the GOP establishment for constantly giving in, Rove was busy predicting a Romney landslide. No contest in this match-up, folks.



Predictably, Kurtz also gets in a shot at our Second Amendment. No liberal writing today would be complete without a chic gun grab comment. He calls the use of cross hairs on Palin’s political action committee site ‘unwise’. Kurtz points to the aftermath of the Gabby Giffords shooting and Palin’s subsequent dealings with Roger Ailes as her ‘low point’ at Fox. Says who? Palin disagreeing and not being afraid to stand up to powerful men is not a negative. It’s what makes her great.



The overall idea of Kurtz’ article is that Palin’s stock has fallen. I guess he wasn’t at CPAC this past February for Governor Palin’s keynote speech. A crowd that acted like a mime convention for many speakers erupted as if Hendrix came back from the dead when the Wasilla Warrior hit the stage. I guess Mr. Kurtz and the twitter brigade of malcontents didn’t pay attention to the myriad of Republican candidates yearning for a Palin endorsement for their campaigns. Ted Cruz beamed when reporting his campaign phones lit up like Christmas trees immediately after receiving an official blessing from Palin. Ask Deb Fischer, Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake, Paul Gosar, and Ted Yoho how meaningless Palin support is. All rolled to victory after receiving a Palin endorsement.



The hate of Palin and misunderstanding of her political power makes the Left look even worse than usual. Leaving Fox by choice has opened up many doors for Palin. She can now appear on other networks to express her views while continuing to promote commonsense conservative candidates. Her power in the 2014 primaries could be especially important considering the building sentiment from Tea Partiers to get rid of as many of the spineless, milquetoast, GOP incumbents as possible. Sarah Palin leaves Fox in a great position. While Karl Rove and the other pundits continue to spew meaningless garbage, Palin will be making a real difference, working to elect Constitutionalist candidates. Perhaps one of those candidates may be Governor Palin herself. Oh, the crow that will be eaten then.

False Stories Spread on Gov Palin’s Departure from Fox

lies-crosshairs-o4pstates

Real Clear Politics reported on January 23 that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was not renewing her contract with Fox News. Scott Conroy cited an anonymous source “close to the Palins” as saying, “It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement.” Gov. Palin re-affirmed this account in an interview with Stephen K. Bannon, Producer of The Undefeated on Breitbart News and announced by her in a Facebook Status post. Bannon asked Gov. Palin, “what’s next for you?” She responded:

“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” (emphasis mine).

No one from Fox News has disputed Gov. Palin’s account in any way, shape or form.

Despite the simple facts being what they are, a disturbing array of false stories have been published to the effect that “Fox News dumped Sarah Palin,” and that she is “irrelevant.” These phony stories have appeared in the usual left-wing publications such as Huffington Post.

Simply put, Fox News offered Gov. Palin a renewal contract. She declined it so she can bring her message to a larger audience. By staying with Fox, her contract would have precluded her conducting interviews with other networks, except with rare prior permission. Renewing the contract would have meant more preaching to the choir — because Fox News’ audience is Gov. Palin’s choir so to speak. Those who say that Fox “dumped her,” are telling lies, plain and simple.

The original Breitbart interview now has over 3,800 comments. The people who claim Gov. Palin is “irrelevant” cannot stop talking about her. When our Second Amendment came under attack, a major Tea Party group did not reach out to those some would consider “relevant.” They called out to the “irrelevant” one: Gov. Palin. That Facebook post yielded nearly 181,000 likes and 13,725 comments. How many “relevant” people would kill for these numbers? Time Magazine’s Senior Editor Mark Halperin acknowledged on the Today Show that Gov. Palin still “has so much star power.”

Nor, is Gov. Palin’s relevance strictly in the political realm. She is speaking at a leadership conference in March and is the gala keynote at a major event commemorating Terri Schiavo.

Fox News like any other TV network lives and dies by ratings. If you lose your ratings, you lose your show and no TV network is going to keep you a day longer than they need you. Irrelevant people are not offered contract renewals and most often don’t even get to complete an existing contract. If Gov. Palin’s ratings had tanked and she had ceased to be relevant, Fox News would have cited poor ratings and the decision to not renew would have been theirs. But, Gov. Palin’s ratings were strong and Fox offered her the renewal. As previously reported and stated — she declined the renewal so she can broaden her reach to new markets.

Gov. Palin is highly relevant. Her potential reach to markets outside Fox News strikes fear and loathing in the hearts of her enemies, because she remains — as Stephen Bannon put it — an existential threat to the way they conduct business.

"Palin: ‘We Haven’t Yet Begun to Fight’"

"Palin: ‘We Haven’t Yet Begun to Fight’"

sarah-facebook-o4p

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today posted this Status Update on Facebook:

Palin: ‘We Haven’t Yet Begun to Fight!’—Exclusive Interview with Breitbart News
www.breitbart.com
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.

Retrieved from: http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin/posts/508289715890287.

Ed. Notes:

Following are salient points and quotes from Gov. Palin in this interview with Breitbart News:

Gov. Palin plans to jump out of her comfort zone and reach broader audiences, not merely preach to the choir. This is likely the basis of her decision to not renew her contract with Fox News.

“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.” She continued, “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.”

For her long-term future, Gov. Palin said, “the door is wide open.”

Gov. Palin said Obama’s first term was a very good predictor of his current one. About 2012 and lessons learned, she said, “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.

Gov. Palin continued, “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.”

In answer to a question on whether the Tea Party movement is dead, Gov. Palin responded, “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.”
