Skip to comments.Sarah Palin Is 'Just About' Ready To Renounce Her Republican Ties
Posted on 06/13/2014 6:59:39 PM PDT by Innovative
News of poor conditions at a holding center in Arizona for undocumented, unaccompanied minors whipped Sarah Palin into a fury Friday -- so much so that she said she was on the verge of renouncing her ties to the Republican Party.
She then accused President Barack Obama of orchestrating the "crisis" in Arizona in order to advance his own immigration reform agenda.
"In this case, Obamas refusal to enforce immigration laws and his blatant suggestion that his chosen illegal activity will be rewarded are proof of his tyrannical tactics," Palin wrote.

No, they like the perks.
Business Insider was referencing the original article at TPM (just to give proper credit):
Palin: Immigration Debate ‘Just About Driving Me To Renounce My Republican Ties’
That’s right. And half her vision. Half her intellect.
Frankly, Sarah’s more of a man than 90% of the Republicans. Go for it Sarah - it’s time. Many will follow.
If she starts responding to the name “Nigel”, we will know it has happened! I don’t think she is leaving the GOP. I hope she does not. I think renouncing her ties would harm her influence.
by promising us real immigration reform...
that will turn out in the end to be total amnesty with a conservative-looking face.
Me too. Rarely in human history have so many shown such little courage.
she then accused President Barack Obama of orchestrating the “crisis” in Arizona ...
I do wonder about that. do Senior Obama and his Mexican Counterpart have talks on such matters? I remember years ago reading that the government down there encourages the poor to leave to come to America
“I think renouncing her ties would harm her influence.”
Are you kidding? You might have missed it, but amongst conservatives, the gop is about as popular as a leper at a baby shower.
Kerry was in Mexico around May 16th, the flood started shortly thereafter, Mexico is anally corrupt and has very strict immigration laws. How did all of these well dressed (everyone is wearing jeans/cheap Levis end up HERE all of a sudden t? This is Fast and Furious on steroids!
This isn’t about courage. It’s about power and dividing up the spoils. The uniparty is just acting on a consensus view that their future is best served by destroying the American middle class.
Gun Running...and now People Running!
I’m beginning to lose my tolerance for the regime
Go for it Sarah - its time. Many will follow.
It is time and past time. I’ll believe it when I see it though.
The proof that it is ochestrated between Obama & Mexico is that these are OTM (Other Than Mexican) children. Mexico normally kills or otherwise discourages Central Americans from entering Mexico. Mexico knew these train loads were coming up & allowed it to happen.
Well, a good step. But that is not quite enough. Those that do must be willing to not support the GOPe. That is tough for many to do when it comes right down to it.
an intertestng transcript discussing sec of state kerry’s mexico junket
just a coincidence,,,,,
I’m not kidding. It’s a legitimate question. Would her influence be harmed by being officially on the outside? I have a concern about that. There are still a lot of conservative people who are registered Republican voters. They aren’t as tuned into all of this as you and I are. What does she gain by severing ties, what does she lose by severing ties, what do we all gain by her merely saying she’s close to doing so? If she leaves, does the GOPe get to claim victory? It’s not a real clear decision.
Ok, she wants to renounce her Repub ties, so she can become what? A Democrat? of course not. A libertopian? If so, she has to renounce her Christian beliefs, libertopians (for the most part, except for a minority that claim otherwise) are for abortion, atheism, same sex marriage, and other assorted Sodom and Gomorrah beliefs.
Jeez, this had me worried until I read the last sentence of the article which is a direct quote from Sarah:
“The primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents.”
And, my fears resolved, say “HELL YES, SARA....let’s fly them back home....but not reimburse their families for the expenses they incurred in their attempt to violate American sovereignty and laws”.
Let them learn a hard truth -— crime doesn’t pay. Right now, the Obama regime and RINO Republicans are trying to make it pay big time for the invaders.
A libertopian? If so, she has to renounce her Christian beliefs, libertopians (for the most part, except for a minority that claim otherwise) are for abortion, atheism, same sex marriage, and other assorted Sodom and Gomorrah beliefs.
Good point. Just like the last Republican nominee.
And, by the way, some of you folks need to work on your reading comprehension-—Sarah Palin is NOT leaving the Republican Party. She’s, along with Ted Cruz and a number of others, is leading the efforts to rescue it from the corruption currently infecting it and return it to its proper place as a constitutional conservative party.
More power to you Sarah!!
I don’t believe Palin will split with the GOP before the 2014 election.
Palin MIGHT after the mid-term. In my opinion.
been there. done that.
If you flip a coin 15 times, and it keeps coming
up ‘heads’, it is a double-headed coin.
The GOP is CORRUPT. IT BEGAN ObamaCARE and has
NO interest in stopping in.
Same thing with the rest, from Amnesty to open borders
to arming al Qaeda to ignoring the IRS atrocity.
“Shes, along with Ted Cruz and a number of others, is leading the efforts to rescue it from the corruption currently infecting it and return it to its proper place as a constitutional conservative party.”
It is one wing of the Central Oligarchy and has been.
It is not a conservative party. Conservatives are one part of it.
It is not a constitutional party. 2/3 of the Constitution has been contravened with nary a peep from the RINO party.
Even under Ronaldus Maximus, it did not become a conservative party. He forced conservative ideas. The leadership simply waited until he was gone and continued on their way as if nothing had happened.
Mexico is no friend to America. If there’s anything they can do at their executive level to hurt us, they’ll do it. They are much more of an enemy than an ally.
I so loathe this POS that I cannot read it but I know in my heart and soul that I am correct.
Palin would not leave unless it serves as the start of a movement, she isn’t thinking of just quietly leaving the GOP like Mitt Romney did in 1979 because of Reagan.
If only congress would have half her courage..they would impeach obama..instead of defending him
I dont even think that John John... ..in the transcript....
likely as not no one there wanted to bring up his most important task....
How about something called a “Conservative”?
Ya need to get outta yer “bubble”.
Consevative is “good”!!
She is just as faithful as you purport to be.
I will stop supporting Sarah when she leaves the GOP.
“If you flip a coin 15 times, and it keeps coming
up heads, it is a double-headed coin....”
So, I guess you’d call the victory of Ted Cruz and his defeat of David Dewhurst in the 2012 Texas Senate race just another “head”? The humiliation of Erik Cantor this week is just another “head”? The dispatch of Thad Cochran to the dust pan of history in about 10 days just another “head”?
Come on folks, let’s not be defeatist! We won’t win all the battles but we’re beginning to win most of them. And we will win the war—but apparently not with those of you who get discouraged, abandon this fight and desert during this time of political war.
I would say that the words ysed so far by both sides of this issue is empty rhetoric...
Instead of just mouthing off, and constantly using those empty buzz phrases, how about acting upon something that gives teeth to the problem, and not just words that do not, and have proven to be empty of substance...
Instead of Immigration “reform”...
How about Immigration “enforcement”...
People need to stop getting skull blocked into the words these schmups use, to think it is somehow effective...
We will never see ANY “enforcement” of conservative principles during the next 2.5 years...And anything resembling that, will be fought tooth and nail, after this guy and some of the moderates and liberals are gone...The media (and what may be left of that political force) will see to that...
So instead of regurgitating the buzz words spoon fed to the masses of low-information voters and the keyboard commando brigade...
Most already know that the solution cannot, and will not be implemented for a very long time...
For all intents and purposes, the battle is already lost, but the war is still up in the air...
“What are YOU willing to do about it, and what are YOU willing to sacrifice to support and achieve these goals?”
But the Democrats would love to see the Republican party split in two. Yes, I know how corrupt and lazy the GOPe is. But it it wise to do exactly what your enemy wants you to do?
“Palin would not leave unless it serves as the start of a movement, she isnt thinking of just quietly leaving the GOP like Mitt Romney did in 1979 because of Reagan.”
There is no connection between Palin’s strongly implied threat to leave the GOP, and Romney’s inconsistent and dishonest embrace of Reaganism. Go find a Romneybot to argue with. Good luck in finding one. Even you can beat a Romneybot in an argument.
In answer to your question: I do not think it hurts her especially given that I doubt she will seek elected political office. I see her as potentially leading a political movement outside of the electoral realm that through circumstances might cause her to seek political office at some later time. E.g. Cory Aquino. I think that’s more in line of what she wants and where her skill set lies.
Why? That seems extreme on your part. Would her reasons matter?
FYI, I’m not trying to pick a fight, I’m just curious. I might be disappointed if she did that, depending on the why, but I would likely still support her.
concerning “immigration” what exactly needs to be “reformed” ?
first of all let’s call this mess what it really is - an INVASION !
nothing is broken and nothing needs to be “reformed”.
we need a federal govt that will be made to enforce our current laws and once and for all secure the damn border - with troops until we get control of this mess.
If she decides to do it, I believe she’ll be following a few folks that have done so in principle, if not already done so publically...
Since there is no formal association that is organized into a functional (and electable) political apparatus (maybe that is a good thing at this point)...
A defection of elected republicans (maybe even a few democrats) that might drop their party affiliation, might occur, if they had something tangible to jump to, and that had to be caucused with, and dealt with, in the conventional (political) sense...
So if that movement were to spawn this political organization, and force a clear definition of the left, the moderates, and the “new” (more conservative) right...Then yes, this would be the best thing I can think of for this country...
It would remove a lot of ambiguity from political definitions, and not allow the liberal narratives to bog down definitive positions with political moderation (fecklessness)...
The republican party might even well become the weakest political link in the chain, and might very well be forced to collaborate with the “new”, clearly defined conservative party...
But I am absolutely positive that there are some people who believe the world revolves around the republican party anyway...They can have it...
LOL, what the heck was that personal attack about?
Let’s try again.
Palin would not leave unless it serves as the start of a movement, she isnt thinking of just quietly leaving the GOP like Mitt Romney did in 1979 because of Reagan.

I don’t know what hidden messages you saw in that post, or what kind of guilt or shame you carry around or why you cue on a mention of Romney, but I have no idea who you are, it was a very simple post.
The point was to assuage the obvious concern you kept expressing about Palin, in posts 6 and post 19, that’s all.
Palin won’t ever just ‘leave’ the GOP, she would only leave to start an effective movement.
Fair enough, and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought the same thing. Is it time to break away? The reason I ask is that it actually seems like some progress is possible in the old wineskin of the GOP. Cantor getting creamed, Cochran probably getting the same, possible pickups elsewhere. I don’t know. It’s the same conundrum I have as a member of a mainline Protestant church. Why do we have to leave? Why can’t we make them leave? They’re wrong.
I think Palin said that in order to gauge her influence by the reaction to it. If so, that’s very shrewd. She’s not doing anything until after these mid-terms.
Well, there have always been a few kids involved with border crossings but then the number jumped to 1000 in just two weeks.
The timing is pretty incredible...
The State Department announced on May 7 that jk was going to Mexico.
check the dates on this...http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2014/05/225717.htm
That is to the day when this started...http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/19/us/mexico-border-children/
“”In the past two weeks, more than 1,000 children were apprehended while illegally crossing the border, “
May 21, 2014 — Updated 1314 GMT (2114 HKT)
Two weeks before May 27 is when State Department announced jk was going.
the timing is unmistakable..and unavoidable
there are no coincidences!
I sense that push is inching up on shove at an ever increasing pace.
It was a compliment. I strongly believe that you can win an argument against the average Romney supporter. Why did you cue on Romney in a thread about Sarah Palin. That is weird.
That’s why they are in orchestra with Obama, same goal.
Two weeks before May 21 is when State Department announced jk was going.
