It does make a difference, she said. What you are doing makes a difference and now more than ever we need to ramp it up. Dont retreat, we gotta reload.
In spite of their frustration, Palin soon had the crowd laughing as she peppered her speech with political jokes and taking shots against President Obama and his allies. West, a University of Tennessee graduate, led the crowd in a rendition of the song Rocky Top, much to the delight of the crowd.
Palin took the stage acknowledging that Sevierville was Dolly Partons home town, explaining that she once dressed up as Parton for Halloween when she was in High School.
She also reminded them that the media was also trying to sound a death knell for the Tea Party but it was very much alive.
Us bitter clingers and wingers, we ignored those yappin' little lapdogs in the media and with a new social media kind of reporting you know we were able to kick those little varmints away, we were able to ignore what it was that they were saying, she said.
Palin held up Sen. Ted Cruz as an example of a Washington politician that was fighting for them, and explained that it was more important than ever to send him allies in his fight against the Washington establishment.
He is there for a reason not a season, and thats what we need more of, she said. We need to send the good guys reinforcements to take the battle to Capitol Hill for us.
Although she hasnt endorsed Joe Carr yet in his primary, Palin dropped a hint to Tennessee voters that he was one of their allies.
We need to be pretty discerning here of what kind of Carr we send to D.C.,

She’s right. Losing a battle doesn’t mean losing the war; in fact, it only lets one learn the enemy’s tactics and refine one’s own for the next and probably bigger battle.
Giving up is not an option.
Shoot until you run out of their ammo......
Great article. Sarah’s on fire...love the “yappin’ lapdogs” and “clingers and wingers” terms.
Love this quote from TN Senate candidate Carr....
Carr said that McDaniel would have won by at least five points in Mississippi, if the establishment hadnt worked to steal an election by reaching out to Democrats.
Hooray for Sarah Palin!
Liberals win all the battles and lose all the wars.
Molon Labe’ from my cold dead hands.
Don't Retreat, Reload!!
Thad'll be a good, warm seat come next Congress - he's a plant - er, a pliant Republican:
C'mon, let's all work to have a Republican majority in the Senate (make sure they're the right kind of Republicans, like Mitch, Thad, John, Susan and Goober - er, Lindsey), so the President can have a whole other non-functional group to blame for the total meltdown that'll come just before 2016!
Sure! Harry Reid wants to elect as many republicans as possible so he won’t have to have that nasty old job of majority leader. Get real.
Love it! Love how Sarah worked in the Carr shout out, too.
Sure! Harry Reid wants to elect as many republicans as possible so he won’t have to have that nasty old job of majority leader. Get real.
Actually, I read that Cochran has voted against Reid about 90% of the time. I think he’s despicable in general, probably senile, and should suffer legal consequences if it can be proved he had any involvement in stealing the election through fraud, but we’ve got to keep this in perspective.
We need to have more GOP Senators, because in this current legislature and with this administration, unless there is a numerical GOP majority that takes control out of Harry Reid’s hands, you can elect all the conservatives you want and they will still be able to do nothing. In legislative politics, numbers are all.
This is true of the House, too. Things have gotten significantly better since the GOP gained control of it, but there still isn’t a big enough majority for many actions.
I think people have learned a lot from this Cochran debacle, and it has definitely discredited old guard pols like Barbour and Cochran in a big way. I think they’d find it very difficult to get away with stunts like this in the future, and if conservatives stay the course and fight against them, they won’t have much chance. If 35,000 Dems voted and Cochran still won by only 6,000 votes, that means that McDaniel would have won easily without the fraud. But in the meantime, we simply need GOP bodies in those numbered seats in Congress.
I am certain it is the acme of foolishness, but wouldn’t it be nice to hear SOME expression of regret from the Beltway Boys? Even something like, “mistakes were made” “excessive zeal” “poor judgement”?
I’m not holding my breath.
They crossed a line, my FRiend. There is good reason to expect this will be SOP moving forward. Why wouldn’t it be?
Wrong. What happened in MS is absolutely unforgivable.
Thad must go. Those rascist ads are disgusting beyond words.
I have a few Conservative friends next door in MS. They are livid and are planing to vote for Childers.
You are likely a GOPe puke operative. Tell Karl hi!
These ratings come in mighty handy to dispel incumbent propaganda!
Cochran (MS) - 54% (Average) - 57% (Heritage) - 56% (CFG) - 60% (ACU) - 41% (FreedomWorks)
Cuccinelli in Va and now McDaniel in MS have nearly mortally wounded me, even though both elections were stolen with RAT and libertarian help.
Not going to fret about MS anymore: if most of that state wants to stay on the gravy train, let them.
Now I’m looking/hoping for supposedly ‘safe’ rat Senate seats who could become Cantorized.
How about sticking with actual argumentation and leave off this attempted trashing of the reputation of a venerable FReeper?
LOL! Making up facts?
Because he is now regarded as a contemptible puke. Even the establishment types know this was a line that shouldn't have been crossed. I doubt it serves as a precedent.
In here, he is. Out there...not so much. That is why the GOP needs to be punished in a way that is unmistakable.
George Washington lost many a battle, until he WON the war. It’s always darkest before the dawn. Keep in mind how dark it seemed in the beginning of WWII..we lost many a battle, until we started to turn it all around and finally won the war on all fronts. Be of good faith, know we’re going to lose some and win some. Never give up, never stop fighting, is my motto. There are going to be hard times ahead, and some of us are going to suffer greatly..that’s what liberalism is all about, until we get rid of them in Washington. It’s what fuels me to keep going, that, and the great love I have for the Constitution, our liberty and freedom.
Just telling you what I read on a post here. Most of the GOP, even the worst (with the exception of people like our old friend “Maverick” McCain), have voted with their party in the Senate. It just doesn’t do a lot of good because we don’t have the numbers, and the Dems have such party control that none of them will “cross the aisle” to vote with the GOP on anything.
“He’s Santorum, Jim.”
Anyone who pays attention to politics knows that what he did was out of bounds. That’s why you had the lawyerly, barely-committal statements from the senators who were asked about the outcome of the race. When Cochran walks into a room these days, it probably gets quiet. He and everyone knows he crossed the line, even establishment types.
As for punishments, punish away. It won’t amount to anything. What needs to happen is that the conservative base needs to be better educated about who it is they’re voting for. If that legwork had been done, this race would have gone to McDaniel.
It would be nice to hear something, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. However, somewhere in the threads on this, there is either a comment citing an article that said this has raised a lot of concern in GOP headquarters, if only because they are afraid it will affect their fundraising across the board. Which it will.
I don’t think they’ll try it again. For one thing, this was an unusual election under unusual circumstances, so they couldn’t do precisely the same thing again. But they will do things like use vicious and distorted attack ads, etc., as we saw in the last campaign. Romney particularly distinguished himself by his viciousness and lies - against other GOP candidates. When it came to attacking the Dems, of course, he was silent. So while I don’t think the GOP/Dem alliance will do anything quite so brazen again, they will certainly use dirty tactics.
I think it would help in this case if the GOP leaders would formally repudiate the tactics, but it’s a good ol’ boys club, and good ol’ boys never criticize each other.
Comforting words it’s me.. thanks for sharing.
OK. How do you propose to educate those 35,000 Democrat crossover voters that Barbour and Rove ginned up?
If just a few thousand more conservatives in MS had understood who the candidates were, McDaniels would have won.
Could be. I would think his overall conservative rating, however, also reflects his positions on things that probably never even come to a vote. Does it refer only to his vote for bills that are before the Senate, or does it cover other things in his career (such as his campaign promises, which were certainly not conservative)?
I’ve been thinking about how this could play out, since it doesn’t seem in can be reversed. For one thing, many people have said that he probably won’t serve out his term and that his seat will go to somebody completely off the wall, such as Haley Barbour’s wife (IIRC), etc. So maybe MS conservatives should be quietly preparing for that battle, not to mention getting things in place for 2016 (convention delegates, etc.). I think the important thing is not to be taken by surprise again.
Frankly, the only people I think are “operatives” are people urging Mississippians to vote for the Dem.
Other people may disagree with you on tactics and even on candidates, which is no sin, btw. But anybody who’s actively urging support for the other side is betraying the cause regardless of why he’s doing it.
Cochran is not going to really change things in Washington like McDaniel would have.
GOP does not equal real conservative in 95 percent of the cases. Cochran used a liberal smear message to win the election and proved what he really is in his heart like most Republicans.
I agree with conservatives who choose not to vote for Cochran in November.
I will not vote for most Republicans including my governor Tom Corbett here in Pennsylvania because they like Cochran have proven by their actions they are not real conservatives.
> Cochran has voted against Reid about 90% of the time... weve got to keep this in perspective. We need to have more GOP Senators, because in this current legislature and with this administration, unless there is a numerical GOP majority that takes control out of Harry Reids hands, you can elect all the conservatives you want and they will still be able to do nothing. In legislative politics, numbers are all.
Cochran’s not going to change anything. He’s just a number, but we need those numbers if the good people who get elected (obviously, not in MS!) want to be able to do anything.
Just because you can't figure it out or use the sense God gave a turnip does not mean that actual conservatives won't figure it out. We have. Screw Mitchie McConnell, John Cornyn, LAMAR!!! Alexander, Pat Roberts, Thad Cockroach, Weeper of the House John (Hic) Boehner, "Majority" "Leader" Kevin McCarthy and their ilk. We don't need to give Cantor further thought. He gone! Now send the rest of these crappy servants of the US Chambers of Crony Commerce to their well-deserved political demise.
Now and forever. Send the GOP where the Federalists and the Whigs went for identical reasons. $$$$ corruption uber alles is all they care about.
REMEMBER MISSISSIPPI!!!! Even after that tool Thad Cockroach goes to the Pleasant Valley Home for the incurably senile.
REMEMBER MISSISSIPPI!!!! Even after Haley Boss Hogg Barbour and his cronies have become residents of the federal hoosegow, the sooner and the longer the better. Make Boss Hogg a Trusty and have him on permanent latrine duty.
Why, billhilly do you imagine yourself a Republican much less a conservative? Is it because you are incapable of noticing that whether Harry Reid or Mitchie McConnell happens to be Majority Leader makes absolutely NO DIFFERENCE on policy except as to Muffie's trust fund? Not good enough!
***Palin held up Sen. Ted Cruz as an example of a Washington politician that was fighting for them, and explained that it was more important than ever to send him allies in his fight against the Washington establishment.***
It would be a huge mistake not to heed these words here. Nobody can do it alone. And remember each of us as individuals play a big part in the struggle as well.
Tennessee has open primaries too. So don't be surprised if he suffers the same fate McDaniel did.
Think what we could do with a POTUS like Allen West or Sarah!
I think about THAT ^^ every single day.
Thad Cockroach IS the "other side" as are Haley Boss Hogg Barbour and the US Chambers of Crony Commerce. They would retroactively abort their own mothers if they could make a buck off of it. Supporting the likes of Cockroach IS a sin. The tactics of Boss Hogg ARE sins and I don't give a s*it whether they are legal or not except insofar as violations might lead to the sleazebags being imprisoned at length.
When the term "Republican Senator" is broad enough to be interpreted as including such liberal and/or actual pro-abort trash as Lisa Murkowski, Mark Nancyboy Kirk, Susan Collins, LAMAR!!! Alexander, Bob Corker, Light Loafers Graham, Thad Cockroach, Mitchie McConnell, John (father of GLAAD's pro-abort Miss Piggy) McCain, Jeff Flake, for just ten examples, there is going to be no such thing as a "Republican Majority" because of traitors in the ranks. They can not be trusted to stop Obozo's SCOTUS and other judicial nominations, to seriously resist his "czars," to fight abuses by his IRS or by his NSA, to clean out the cesspool that is the Veteran's Administration's shameful treatment of vets, to stop treating illegals infinitely better than our veterans, to stop homosexual peversity posing as "marriage" and to put a stop to the leftist sacrament of abortion.
Performance and not rhetoric are what is required. Those who, at best, practice rhetoric in office ARE the other side every bit as much as Baahbaah Boxer, Diane Fineswine, Richard Blumenthal, Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren, Hillary the Medusa or whoever.
That Mississippians should vote for Travis Childers seems obvious under the circumstances. Unless conservatives learn to genuinely hate their enemies and act accordingly, the enemies will always win. When our enemies control the GOP, we have no major party to be a vehicle to translate our beliefs into governing reality. Absolutely PURGING the GOP of its crony capitalists and spoiled brats and trust funders is job #1.
Think your Savior and mine chasing the moneychangers from the Temple.
REMEMBER MISSISSIPPI!!!! Now and forever!
OK, since I live here I will remember Mississippi. You are just another simpleton who lives in that hellhole Illinois, and believe you have all the answers. You are in very good company on FR, but not so much elsewhere.
If you want to see to it that Boss Hogg's wife, son, nephew, third cousin twice removed or brainless Bret Favre or whomever do not get appointed to the sure to be created vacancy resulting from the death of Mr. Cockroach's last surviving brain cell (to be reported on the 6th day after he is next sworn in IF HE IS SWORN IN), then keep the SOB from being re-elected which is the one and only way to stop this fiasco.
If Boss Hogg wins this one (like serial phony Clarke Reed before him) while posing as Mississippi's conservative leader while raking in the lobbying cash for every unholy purpose under the sun, don't count on a single trustworthy delegate out of Mississippi in 2016 or a successful challenge to Roger (Xaviera Hollander) Wicker in 2018.
The problem is that Childers, no matter how much you love him and seem to believe that the Dem is the true conservative, is never going to VOTE for any of those things. The Dems vote in lockstep with Harry Reid, who in turn does whatever Obama wants.
That was my whole point. Individuals are not the important thing here. Numbers matter. As long as there are more Dems than GOPers and Obama is president and Reid is in charge, no matter how much you love the guy, he’s not going to vote for any of the programs you want. And unless you elect enough GOP Senators and Reps to have a majority, even if McDaniels had won (well, he did, but that’s another story), he couldn’t have done anything.
Think strategically. The Dems do.
Probably the best thing I heard all day...your conservative friends in MS not voting for Cochran....that’s where it needs to start
