Director producer and executive chairman of, Steven Bannon, interviewed Sarah Palin today after the news yesterday that she would not be renewing her contract with FOX News as a contributor. Sarah Palin’s message: “We have not begun to fight.”

What’s next for you?

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.

Sarah Palin ended the interview with this, “When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight!”

    Don’t wait for Sarah. Take the reins yourself and get involved starting with your local elections if need be.


    As long as the conservative media, GOP, bloggers, talk radio, etc. choose to remain silent on the multiple fraud/forgery crimes committed by the Kenyan Occupier of 1600, nothing will change. And we deserve to lose the country. So, when Sarah says ‘We have not yet begun to fight’ – I’ll be interested to see if she remains SILENT too.

    Best of timing Sarah Palin you are going to get ready when it get tougher. Don’t know whether Traitor in Chief allow it to happen or not.

  • JDR-Taq

    14 Trillion in debt. We’re borrowing money just to pay down the interest, which is in the billions per year.

    The horses have escaped, and now Palin wants to close the barn door.

    Palin thinks we can avoid the inevitable.

    Indeed. Even our so-called “best” are silent as the grave on these matters.

    Fight, Sarah! FIGHT! Or GTFO of the boxing ring.

    Ann Barnhardt has more guts.

  • Gary Ogletree

    The GOP is too corrupt to salvage. Time to move on.

  • Joanne

    Well, that is true, in fact, no one has really begun to fight on anything. Any opposition to anything Obama has managed to get by the American people has been impotent. Even Sarah Palin couldn’t get herself to go after Obama on the fact that he’s provided fraudulent documentation to usurp the Presidency. If you can’t rise above the ridicule of the nutjob leftards, then you don’t have what it takes.

  • usamopatriot

    Go Sarah!!



    Over the next few months, the GOP will hasen their demise, by going along with Amnesty. Assisted-Political-Suicide, you might call it. Unfortunately, the GOP is going to take the USA with them.

    “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” — Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857.

    Go Sarah…Go away, Go far away. You’re a quitter and a blowhard. We don’t need you.

  • Patty

    How much fun is she having. When she’s right she’s right.

  • jainphx

    Man I love that woman, she speaks it like it is and yet, those who are supposed to be on our team, belittle and castigate this woman. Rove is a snake, McCain is a snake, Boehner is a snake, McConnell is a snake. We either get this party back from the enemy or we start our own “conservative fighting party” but we can’t go on this way. Just watch how much these snakes are going to give away, without a backward glance.

    Lady mondegreen, it’s you we don’t need. You are an example of the snakes in Washington. You please go away, we Americans wish to be Americans once more and hold our heads up high. You are a pissant and a distraction.

    Deserves a quote:

    I love you Mrs. Palin, but you left the battlefield much to the bloodied eyes of your abandoned Compatriots as you picked at your bag of Chic Fil A battles with your multi million dollar pay off.

    Some Americans like yourself can confuse “wisely” with cowardice and confuse “wisely” with prudence, as your due season was purchased with the blood of this blog holding point and field, as you appear with your confederates of Limbaugh, Hannity and Levin exorcising the ghosts of Reagan and Breitbart..

    Your Republic is dead Mrs. Palin and you are foolish to distract Patriots to fighting over a corpse buried in the Obama Abyss.
    If you happen to lurch into the light in the embers of the shattered Bonhomme Richard, know this Mrs. Palin that John Paul Jones in his “I have not yet begun to fight”, it was about striking the colors and you struck yours as you abandoned the field for more prudent quarters.

    Those who remained on this dangerous and bloodied fields have not forgotten, nor is the sound of current tourists on our field, is held with the same value as advice in “how we should have bled better”.

    Our flag is not upon a sunken ship of state, but is nailed fast upon the enemy’s Serapis now our possession.

    We know our ship Mrs. Palin. We know the treacherous waters upon which we sail. We know our colors are nailed to our mast. We know the battle Mrs. Palin.

    We are upon these stormy seas Mrs. Palin, and know the waters. We do not need someone calling from shore about pointers about the battle we were in, are in and will be in.

    You might not have begun yet to fight Mrs. Palin……….we never stopped.

    Mustangs earn their braid and brass.

    God bless you Sarah Palin.

    I was thinking:

    Maybe Palin left FOX because she saw it as the leftist, sitzpinkler tool that it is?

    Remember these words, they are gold.

  • Patty

    In my humble opinion Sarah has been one of the most honest and truthful. She knows the score and she is never giving up her fight to keep America Free. And her words are important and I have to say whether she is on Fox or not, she will remain a voice that is the most hated one for the left and most listened too on the right.

    She will be a voice and even more visible in the up coming elections in 2014 and 12.

  • Highlander

    Sarah Palin is a true patriot. And she’s right. We haven’t even begun to fight. Yes, it seems like things are stalled right now, and many of the Conservatives that we look to for guidance are silent, but what choice do we/they have right now? Would we rather have Joe Biden as our President? Choosing Biden as vice President was a BRILLIANT move on Obama’s part…

    There is a time and a place for every battle, and when the time is right, we will come together and crush these traitors. In the meantime, it is up to US to work together on the local levels to increase people’s awareness of the threats we face, and bring as many more true conservative candidates to the table in the next election as possible. All this talk of the end of Conservatism and the demise of the Republican party that we’re hearing in the MSM is just wishful thinking.

    Conservatives outnumber liberals two to one in America, and just saying otherwise isn’t going to change that fact. The picture of America that the MSM is painting is nothing but a carefully constructed facade. They’ve been working tirelessly to convince people that they speak for the majority of Americans, but they don’t and they simply aren’t going to change the way we think with their smoke and mirrors. Conservative values run very deep, and while conservatives aren’t typically the sort of people who run around protesting or rioting in the streets, when the time comes, we will unite behind the causes that we know to be just, and become an overwhelming force that cannot be defeated.

    Looks like they cleaned up her English. That’s not the way transcripts of her with Greta look like.

    This little victory by private law firms that found Obama guilty of violating the Constitution in appointing his labor dept. people by “declaring” the Senate in recess. It wasn’t. It was taking a break, that’s all. And the House is allowed to do that while in session. But Obama wanted to put these union crooks on the National Labor Relations Board knowing the Senate would never confirm them. So Obama did what he’s been doing since he took office in 2009 and that is violate the document he hates the most, the Constitution of the United States. He won’t obey it, he won’t preserve it, he won’t protect it, he won’t go by it, he does what it says the President can’t do, and doesn’t do what it says he is supposed to do. But to pick this out from all the other much worse crimes, and they are crimes, I guess if they, somebody had to start somewhere I suppose they picked this violation because it must have been the easiest to find him guilty. Or something, I don’t know.

    Now, if Sarah is preparing to do what Mark Levin and his legal foundation has begun then fine. But if she and all the so-called conservative media, i.e. Fox and not talk about the real crimes Obama has committed and is continuing to commit, and call them crimes because if he bypasses Congress when it is very clear that he was supposed to have gone through Congress then what he did is not an alleged crime, it is a crime and call it that. It doesn’t take the damn Supreme Court to determine if Obama has committed a crime when he passes one of his Presidential Directives to authorize more of the Dream Act into action, you know he is committing a crime because the Dream Act was voted down by Congress. That means it’s dead and cannot be acted upon. IT’S DEAD!! HE CANNOT ACT ON A BILL THAT WAS NOT SIGNED INTO LAW no matter how much he wants to use it for political purposes. Like Fast and Furious was a crime that Obama and Holder committed. Now, if Sarah Palin and the rest of the Republican’s in Congress decides to bring charges against Obama and Holder and bring that before the Supreme Court, that is if Alito and Scalia can force Roberts to recuse himself because he is biased towards the Communists on the Court, then maybe we’ll start seeing Obama gotten rid of.

    But I can tell you right now that if it’s the damn followers of Obama and the Socialist Communists, like this bunch today singing songs and chanting for American’s to have their gun rights away, they are to far gone to save. Let them go. What we need to do is show up with more people then the protesters who could care less about anyone’s guns or rights. They are the one’s who believe that our rights come from government.

    Fox has gone RINO.

    Sarah will quit half way through the fight…

  • labman57


    Rupert Murdoch no longer wished to pay her an exorbitant salary in exchange for a few banal commentaries, and the Whining Wannabe from Wasilla needs more green in order to maintain the lifestyle to wish she has become accustomed. Hence her quest to “share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom” … to the highest bidder.

    I suspect she is not prepared for the forthcoming disappointment.

    Sorry, Sarah … but the American people have spoken.
    And they have said “Thanks, but no thanks” to your political career to nowhere.

  • Joel

    Let’s go Sarah!!! The woman who came on down from her great state of Alaska to save the nation!!! FOX is getting worse and worse and worse, sounding more and more like MSNBC and the rest of the trash. I no longer watch it anymore directly, just use and drudge and etc.

  • Highlander

    You Palin bashers aren’t fit to do her laundry. If push came to shove and the going got tough in this country, I’d take Sarah Palin at my side before I’d take any one of your lame asses. I really don’t know where you get all your hatred for her, but if I had to guess, I’d say it stems from jealousy and fear …

  • jainphx

    Oh my I revel in the fear I see coming from those that get down on Palin. You are fearful that a lady with grit and political guts will turn the country upside down, and drive the snakes out of Washington. They call her a quitter: can you show me ANY OTHER political figure that has undergone the annal inspection that she has received? From her children to 36,000 e-mails and the plea for volunteers to go over these e-mails. The spreading of rumor on the birth of her special son. No all you cowardly snipers are snakes of the worst variety.

  • AmericaWILL

    Lead us, Sarah.

    It’s not hatred, not from critics like myself.

    It’s an acknowledgement of what is plain as the nose on my face: she’s not really fighting.

    Q: Has Palin ever mentioned the obviously-forged BC released by the White House on their very own website in PDF format?

    Q: Has Palin ever mentioned Larry Bland, Nate Spencer, and Donald Young?

    Q: Has Palin ever even said the words: “Cloward and Piven”?

    Q: Has Palin ever even mentioned, just a quick mention, Saul Alinsky?

    Q: Is Palin on record ever uttering “Bill Ayers”?

    Answer key: No. No. No. No. No. She is just as afraid as anyone else, and is pretending to fight, and continuing the Republican tradition of same.

  • JDR-Taq

    I don’t hate Palin.

    I just believe that she and her entire family are in the crosshairs.

    I mean REALLY in the crosshairs.

    Larry Bland, Nate Spencer, and Donald Young would back me up.

    I believe Paul Wellstone and Vince Foster would do the same.

    And Palin knows it. So does every other coward in our government.
