This is from The U.K Daily Mail.
It is time someone shook up the GOP.
The establishment Republicans need to be tossed out of the party.
We also need to bounce Karl Rove out the door.
We lost the last two presidential races because of spineless Moderates.
Men that were to gutless to carry the fight to Obama.
We sure as Hell can not afford 16 years of
Ronald Reagan America needs you or someone like you.
Once again Sarah Palin is showing that she has no plans to play by the rules.
She has parted ways with FOX News after a turbulent relationship with the conservative cable news channel, taken pot shots at pundits in the ‘lame stream media’ and slammed her own party for selecting Mitt Romney as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee.
Now the former Alaska governor says she’ll use the $1.2 million raised through her SarahPAC to ‘shake up the GOP machine’ and unveiled a vague vision on how she’ll get her message out to a larger audience.
Keep an eye out: Sarah Palin, in 2008, failed to give specifics about what’s up her sleeve but financial reports show her PAC has $1.2 million in the bank
News broke on Friday night that she had not renewed her $1 million annual contract with FOX News, after three years as a contributor on Roger Ailes‘ network.
Palin then spoke out on Saturday, in an interview with Breitbart.com, saying that she was working to ‘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.’
Calling the future ‘wide open’ with opportunities, she shared how she plans ‘to pick battles wisely, and all in due season’ – hinting that she still has a fight left in her.
Her vision for the future coincided with the financial disclosure from her Political Action Committee, SarahPAC, with records released on Monday showing she ended 2012 with nearly $1.2 million in the bank.
She raised around $20,790 between Nov. 27 and Dec. 31 and spent $67,800 during that time period on expenses including consulting, speech writing and legal fees.
Though speculation grows over her future, she was quite clear about her view of her party’s past performance in 2012.
She blasted the Republican establishment, announcing her intention ‘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.’
Awkward: Sarah Palin took to Facebook to complain about her employer
She didn’t mince words on the presidential election of 2012, saying former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney lost because he was too moderate and blamed the party for not listening to the desires of grass roots conservatives.
‘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.’
Yet again she took a dig at what she has dubbed the ‘lame stream media,’ calling for more ‘truth-telling’ and praising conservatives, like radio personalities Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin but seemed to intentionally leave out any of her former FOX colleagues.
It’s not clear how exactly Palin’s arrangement ended with the conservative cable news outfit.
FOX, the News Corporation unit run by Mr Ailes, has insisted they parted ways on an amicable note despite repeated signs of a strained relationship.
‘We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors,’ Bill Shine, an executive vice president at FOX, told the New York Times.
Senator John McCain’s former running mate joined the network in January 2010.
With her colored past in U.S. politics, Mr Ailes made no secret of her true appeal.
‘I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings,’ he told the Associated Press in an October 2011 interview.
Unlike former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who hosts a weekly talk show on FOX at the network’s headquarters at 1211 Avenue of the Americas on West 47th Street in Midtown Manhattan, FOX News built a studio for her at her Wasilla, Alaska home.
Her husband, Todd, would occasionally take on the role of cameraman and producer during her live television appearances.
Despite the cozy arrangement that allowed the Alaskan to work from home, it was said that Palin and FOX were not seeing eye-to-eye.
After Sen. McCain‘s loss to Obama in 2008, Palin returned to her native Alaska and then abruptly resigned from her post as governor of Alaska in July 2009.
Her book, ‘Going Rogue: An American Life,’ was published in November 2009 by News Corp.‘s HarperCollins, and she followed it up in 2010 with another book, ‘America by Heart.’
Her relationship with FOX News has been known to be tense, as she and the company’s CEO have traded barbs and often appeared annoyed at each another.
In late 2011, America waited to see if Palin would enter the presidential race after she openly flirted with the idea.
When Palin did finally decide not to throw her hat in the ring in October 2011, she made the announcement on a conservative radio program, The Mark Levin Show, instead of FOX.
Failing to give the exclusive to her employer was seen as a slap in the network’s face.
Then months later, in April 2012, Mr Ailes bluntly stated Palin ‘had no chance to be president’ during a speech at the University of North Carolina.
Palin called his perspective ‘interesting’ and retorted that, ‘I wonder if he is aware that the same thing was said about me when I ran for city council, mayor, and eventually governor,’ in an interview on Breitbart.com.
‘No doubt many people who are told they can’t do something will work that much harder, and they succeed,’ she added.
Mr Ailes later clarified that he wasn’t ‘referring to any …long-term prospects,’ adding that ‘nobody can predict the future.’
But in August of 2012, she showed she had no love for FOX when at the Republican National Convention she took to Facebook to complain that the network had taken her off as a contributor for the convention coverage.
‘I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight,’ she wrote to her more than 3 million followers on her Facebook page.
FOX said the changes were due to a condensed line-up of speakers but the public spat had many wondering last summer if her stint on cable would be coming to a close.
Her last appearance on FOX, the most watched cable news network, was on Dec. 19 for an interview on Greta Van Susteren’s show.
