Sarah Palin says that we need to encourage both red state Democrat senators and Republican senators to stand with Ted Cruz on defunding Obamacare and that we will be watching EVERY vote they make, even the procedural ones.

    Unfortunately the fight to defund O-care ended today. Lets concentrate on throwing all the rinos out.

    • John_Frank

      It is not over until it is over.

      Just because Minority Leader McConnell said one thing today does not mean we can not pressure him into changing his position.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        You are right, is just my disappointment sometimes get the better if me.

      • suedixon

        keep calling his office and remind him we have the votes to vote him and other gop rinos out of office.

    • virginiagentleman1

      My good friend, the fight is over ONLY when WE quit fighting!

      As to your second point, throwing all the rinos out, HELL YES!

      And the sooner, the better for America.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        You are right I sounded like a French Republican, so very nice to hear from you I hope you are doing great. God bless

        • virginiagentleman1

          Hey, I’m still alive one year later (9-19-2012) after I was told that I would most likely die during surgery. I call that doing REAL good! LOL!

          God Bless YOU my friend! God is GOOD to us!

          • Sentinel

            I’m reminded of Paul in the Bible who said (I’m paraphrasing): “To live is to serve God (which he loved to do) but to die is my gain (because he would be with the Lord in Heaven).” So, as a saved Christian, it was a win-win for him. I suspect you are saved my friend and I think you’re likely in the same position. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to see you pass from this earth… you’d be greatly missed. For now, I’m pleased that God is holding you in his arms and keeping you safe. May God continue to bless you my friend.

            • virginiagentleman1

              Thank you my dear Sentinel of God! I AM saved, and 9-25-69 is the date of my salvation and the beginning of my walk with Christ!

              It has been a joyous journey!

              God Bless YOU!

              • Sentinel

                Amen my brother – right back atcha. 🙂

  • Press Watchusa

    I wonder what she thinks about McLame now?

    • John_Frank

      What does it matter what Sarah Palin thinks of Senator McCain?

      How about we focus on taking action? Just a suggestion.

    • virginiagentleman1

      I believe she has carefully addressed that issue, Press. Where she writes,” even though some are trying to convince us that the fight is futile”. The words, the “fight is futile” is a favorite McCain phrase.

      • Dr. Strangelove

        Good catch.

    • There’s one in ever Palin thread.

      No one cares what she thinks of McCain.

    • Amjean

      We are all saddened by the turncoat behavior of McCain as well as other politicians. We are sure that it saddens Sarah Palin even more because she considers John McCain a friend.
      However, that was then and this is now. Please stay on message.

  • John_Frank

    For those who missed it, here is Sarah Palin’s full post:

    “The U.S. Senate has some arcane procedural rules, and as ordinary
    Americans our eyes glaze over trying to decipher them. But it’s
    important for us to understand that Sen. Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund
    Obamacare are worthwhile and doable.

    We shouldn’t preemptively
    surrender the fight to those who rammed through this outrageously
    burdensome and unaffordable ploy for government control of health care
    even though some are trying to convince us that the fight is futile.
    Just because a fight isn’t easy, doesn’t mean it’s not worth fighting.

    This defund movement boils down to a very simple request. As Andrew
    McCarthy recently pointed out: “Obama himself has already unilaterally
    and unconstitutionally defunded aspects of Obamacare, including
    repugnant accommodations for big corporations, Obama insiders, and
    members of Congress.” All we’re asking is that the rest of America “get
    the same relief from this awful law that Obama cronies, the ruling
    class, and the politically-connected get.”

    Please call your
    senators and politely ask them to stand with Senator Cruz. This is
    especially important if your senator is a Democrat up for re-election in
    a red state in 2014. That would be Senators Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark
    Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Kay Hagan (D-NC). Remind them
    politely that we are watching their votes very carefully and even a
    procedural vote that shuts down this debate will be regarded as a vote
    for Obamacare, and there will be consequences for them at the ballot box
    next year. The same goes for Republicans up for re-election. We
    definitely expect them to stand shoulder to shoulder with Senator Cruz
    through thick and thin.

    The number for the Capitol Hill
    Switchboard is 202-224-3121. Ask for your senator’s office. You can also
    find their contact information and contact them online at

    Remember, we elected these senators precisely for moments like this. If
    they can’t do anything with the power we’ve given them through their
    elected office, then perhaps it’s time for them to retire and let
    someone else have a go.

    Opposition to Obamacare carried us to victory in 2010. And 2014 is just around the corner.

    – Sarah Palin”

    Please take action.

    • DocBarry1

      Brilliant see my post above

  • DocBarry1

    If they do not stand for Defunding time to leave

  • Subie201

    We in the lib state of New Jersey have been writing and calling Christie’s pick, Senator Chiesa, who is looked upon as a lib, actually heard us and signed Ted’s petition to defund! Shows you what a little pressure can do!

  • poptoy1949

    Make a list. If they vote NOT to De-Fund Obamacare………Help Vote Them out. ASAP.

    • Sentinel

      You are exactly right! I’ll be doing that big time.

  • Subie201

    Mark threatened to leave months ago! He said we should start the new Freedom Party, and Sarah agreed to sign on! Ted Cruz is doing exactly this! He is helping to show the nation the divide in the Republican Party…RINO LIB VS. Conservationists of Freedom and Liberty! This is the premise of Defund Obamacare! Cruz and Lee are freshman rogues exposing the GOP establishment and how their power takes precedent over “We The People!”

  • carmtom13

    Mark, Gov. Palin and Hannity. Hannity said this a couple of weeks ago ” if the republicans don’t take a stand he is done with them.” I guess what that lib Tamra Holder, who was part of the group that was on Hannitys show Friday was right when she said the democrats have no worry about obamacare not passing because the republicans eat their own. What she said doesn’t bode well for the repubs. I hope some of them saw the show or were told what she said.


    Thanks Ms Palin, Great Advice! Please lets make the calls, its easy and its fun! and who doesn’t enjoy having fun..right!. The link below gives us a list of the Senators, their listed in alphabetical order along with their office contact numbers.

  • BHliberty

    I’ll gladly help! Defund or shut it down!

  • ChesterWalton

    I think RINO Americans would still listen to Gov. Palin if she didn’t give up her governorship while still in office. Think how much more effective her message to these Americans would be if she honored her oath and fulfilled her commitment.

    • buzzkill59

      Shut up stupid!She resigned because she was spending more time defending herself against frivolous lawsuits than doing her job!She did what she did so the state of Alaska could get their business done without the harassment of the libtards!

    • Patriot077

      Nothing at all is wrong with her message.

      It’s just too bad for her, I guess, that the other side is so vicious that they would file numerous frivolous lawsuits against her – which she had to defend with her personal funds. Supplying documents wasted untold resources of the state and would have continued to do so for as long as she stayed in office. Get over it.
      She left her state in good hands and allowed the new governor to govern without distraction.

    • Bill589

      Sarah Palin did more good in two years than other governors do in their lifetimes.

      Would a patriot rather elect a status quo governor who made none of SP’s accomplishments defeating corruption but completed many terms? The keeping of the status quo in DC means we the people lose, the DC elite win. We need patriots like Palin in high places.

    • Bill589

      Honor her oath? She has never stopped honoring her oath to serve the people. She has from ‘Death Panels’ to this day.
      Go think about what you said. Ask yourself why you hate someone you know so little about.

    • No one cares about that. Only the PDS-deranged ever bring it up.

    • ernst1776

      Eww, the passive/aggressive argument.

    • spin43

      Please do your research on why she gave up the governorship. The left, which certainly includes the Obama Regime, was bombarding her with frivolous lawsuits. They were trying to make her job impossible to do in hopes of destroying her politically. The Alaskan laws allow for these lawsuits and the Obamatrons wouldn’t give up until she was destroyed. She did the only sensible thing by getting on the outside and fighting from that position. The state run media was, of course, also trying to destroy her.

      • Lady_Penguin

        They were trying to take her down the same way they succeeded in taking Sen Stevens down. Unfortunately, too late for the GOP and America, he was found to be a victim of prosecurial misconduct – though the vindication came too late for him to retain his Senate seat.

        Nothing was done to the prosecutors…

        • spin43

          But McShame says this stuff happens in Russia’s, not here.

          • deTocqueville1

            Yes, the irony!

        • Sentinel

          Hiya LP! So nice to see you again! Welcome back!

      • Sentinel

        And she didn’t want to use Alaska tax-payer funds to defend herself. You are spot on!.

    • Amjean

      Knock it off! Only the illiterate and uninformed get any value in what you are stating. Thus far, thank the Lord, this site doesn’t seem to get many of those.

    • JD777

      Talking points as old as a stale fart.

    • bornfreeamerican

      She couldn’t perform her job because she was getting assaulted from the left with remarks like yours and worse from others. She was constantly going to court over lawsuits. I believe she was doing what was best for Alaska. She felt she was doing the people of Alaska a disservice because she was spending too much time defending herself with NO help from anybody in the GOP.

  • Rocco11

    Hey Sarah, what do you think happens when they call John McCain rather than JD Hayworth?

  • Amjean

    This is Palin at her best. Serious message, plain language, no heavy duty snark (altho I love her “snark”, at times it overshadows the message), no complaints about the media.
    She is also sending a message to those who are running for office. Do the job we
    sent you to do or she (and we) are coming after you! Can’t say they weren’t warned!
    And by one of the best!!!
    Good for her!

  • suedixon

    tried to call cornyn and mccain’s office. no one answering – mailboxes full.

  • physicsnut

    I saw Harry Reid saying that the bill is ‘dead on arrival’ again ! I wish he would get some common sense and RESIGN, after APOLOGIZING to the American People. And take his uber-liberal nutjob pals with him.

    oh and by the way – in the NY Post today I see an exclusive
    how about them democrat primary voters !
    and you wonder how come we end up with garbage legislation.

  • John

    I have tried to call Cornyn’s office all morning!! He is my Senator. His voice mail box is “full” and when I dial through to speak to a person, the extension is “currently on the line”. It then says to leave a message and while waiting to hear the *beep*, the phone hangs up and disconnects…EVERY time!! Cornyn is a coward traitor if he does not back Cruz and Lee in this effort. I will NEVER vote for him again!

    • deTocqueville1

      He’s hiding. They are cowards without principle or spines.

  • BHliberty

    I ended up tweeting (actually just set up an acct) just to tell them, “Vote No on cloture”! We need to stand with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee!

  • Rshill7

    Well conservative campers, this appears to be the John McCain response to Sarah Palin’s support of Ted Cruz. Uh huh. Ms. Palin? How do you feel about this? Have you yet lost all respect for him as we have?

    • deTocqueville1

      Schmidt is irrelevant. Palin had been aware of this stuff since the 08 campaign. Time to stay focused on the challenges ahead.

      • Rshill7

        RINO’s are the challenges ahead.

        • Bill589

          But Schmidt is a special head-case kind of irrelevant. His ‘use’ was to bash Palin, and his same old, same old, story is losing it’s effectiveness. Time to throw this tool away.

          • Rshill7

            I don’t give a sh*t about Schmidt. What I’m trying to talk about here is McCain himself. Mmkay? This is the first time I’ve heard that McCain himself is bashing Palin and the Tea Party too vicariously, using her as his subject matter.

            • Bill589

              Yep. Our first battle is with the R half of our corrupt government – the Rinos. McCain is among the worst. There is no doubt Palin and McCain are on opposite sides in the DC vs The People battle.

  • Freedomswatch

    I have been calling the Senators who oppose cloture or have not stated their position. There is a comprehensive list with numbers on the Senate Conservative Fund site. If you have time to call, today is the day to burn the phone lines. Mitch Mc Connell’s office won’t even let you leave a message. Call as many as you can.
    Its time to stand up for We the People.

  • Elizabeth

    Called mine. Senator Nelson won’t take calls, so I left voice mail, dropped him an email & snail mailed him yesterday. Senator Rubio took my call and is against Obamacare and the cloture. I also tweet my support to Senator Cruz, often, so he knows there are people in his corner, not just people against him.

    I and my family, are among of the Walgreens insured, that are losing their insurance because of Obamacare. So, if we like our insurance and our doctor, we CAN’T keep them.

  • Call your piece of human debris today…tell them to try not to be a piece of human debris for just one week.
    It’s a lot to ask.

  • Exodus2011

    Senators on SPEED DIAL, Patriots!

    ~> “Until Reid guarantees a 60-vote threshold on all amendments, a vote for cloture is a vote for Obamacare. ” ~ Cruz

  • Exodus2011

    Sen. McConnell (202-224-2541) & Sen. Cornyn (202-224-2934) R actively working to FUND Obamacare, by allowing Reid to set up 51votes not 60.

  • DavidRobertson

    Today one of my heroes, Tom Sowell even came out against pursuing defunding. He said that it was a much needed distraction for Obama. Sad to see him take that position.
    The bottom line is this: Do we stand for principle over politics? Does everything have to be a political risk calculation? If anything is to change, you have to fight for principle regardless of the political risk. Quit listening to pollsters. Quit listening to consultants. Ask yourself: Would the progressives lay low on a key issue of theirs just to avoid political risk? Would the progressives give up on an effort flatly based on the prediction that the conservative president promised a veto? Heck no. They would put it in his face and make him veto it, period. Then they would make political hay out of the fact that the President refused to go with the will of the people.
    The feckless Repubikans are making moves based on verbal threats from Reid and Obama. Unbelievable. No wonder nobody takes them seriously or gets behind them on national issues. It’s like hiding behind the 90 lb weakling to avoid a bully.
