Palin in Breitbart Interview: “We haven’t begun to fight!”

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 26, 2013

Governor Palin gave Breitbart.com an exclusive interview about her future plans.  Stephen Bannon, Executive Chairman of Breitbart News, reports:

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.

[…]

1. What’s Next?

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.

[…]

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.

[…]

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.

WSJ: Sarah Palin declined renewal offer by FOX News

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 26, 2013

Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate speaks at a "Patriots in the Park" Tea Party rally at the Wayne County, Mich., fairgrounds in July.

Not unexpectedly, an overnight media frenzy erupted over Governor Palin’s decision to leave FOX News.   Some outlets stated that it was “unclear” whether Governor Palin or FOX News decided not to renew her contract.  Although most in the mainstream media and the leftist bloggers have attempted to put a negative spin on the story, the Wall Street Journal, which is owned by the same parent company as FOX News, confirmed what Real Clear Politics and Breitbart.com reported initially.

Palin Won’t Renew Fox News Contract

By KEACH HAGEY

Sarah Palin, who rode the national celebrity from her unsuccessful 2008 vice presidential run into a media career as a paid Fox News contributor, won’t be renewing her contract with the cable news network, said a person familiar with the matter.

“It is my understanding that she was offered a renewal contract and she declined it,” the person said.

Fox News didn’t respond to requests for comment. The channel is a unit of News Corp., which also owns The Wall Street Journal. The news was earlier reported by Real Clear Politics.

USA Today also reports:

A person familiar with discussions between Fox and Palin described the parting as amicable, saying that Fox and Palin had discussed renewing her contract but she decided to do other things. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.

Tony Lee at Big Journalism writes:

According to RealClearPolitics, FOX News offered to renew Palin’s contract as a contributor, and the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee declined.

“It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” a source close to Palin told RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, one of the few reporters who has largely covered Palin fairly throughout the years. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”

A source close to Palin confirmed to Breitbart News that Palin declined FOX News’ offer to renew her contract, and the two parties seem to be parting amicably.

[…]

She made her announcement that she was not going run for president, though, on Mark Levin’s show. She also made an impromptu appearance on CNN during the network’s Republican primary coverage. Like she did at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, Palin impressed reporters with her impromptu interviews. However, because of her FOX News contract, Palin could not go on other cable and mainstream media networks to discuss politics, policy, and cultural issues. Now, she will able to talk on other networks besides FOX News.

Palin–since she now does not have a television contract–will also be free run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016 if she so chooses.

Read more.

Could this expansion of her national message for common-sense conservatism be in part an answer to the Tea Party’s plea for her to get more involved?    As Tony Lee has noted, she will now be free to take her message to a wider audience now.  That outcome would be reminiscent of the broadening of her message after she resigned from the governorship to spare her family and Alaska the expenses inflicted by those who sought to destroy her with frivolous complaints.   FOX News allowed her to get her message out but with restrictions.  Now she can participate in the national discourse more freely and prepare for a run for the Presidency in 2016 if she chooses to do so.

Sarah Palin for President 2016!
