When Sarah Palin Was Told About Boehner’s Resignation, She Knew Exactly What To Say

Former Gov. Sarah Palin is thrilled at the news of Rep. John Boehner’s decision to resign from Congress at the end of October. Palin said Boehner’s exit is a victory for grassroots conservatives.

“You can only thwart the will of the people for so long. First Eric Cantor, now John Boehner. Senate leadership that’s now on notice surely takes this seriously,” Palin said in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.

Palin said everyday voters are tiring of career politicians who promise, but don’t deliver. She said that the day of reckoning has come, and that those elected to office should pay attention.

“The conservative grassroots is calling out the permanent political class and that’s reflected in the GOP presidential polls,” she said.

Some of the recent shake-ups, like Tea Party wins in Texas, Delaware, Wisconsin and New York, are a part of the grassroots conservative movement that Palin has endorsed. She said it’s all for the good of the country.

“Bold, independent Congressmen in Washington prove they’re to be reckoned with now, and they deserve voters’ thanks for doing what we sent them to do – shake up the status quo and get the country back on track,” Palin said.

Boehner has been a congressmen since 1990 and has won re-elections by large margins, obtaining up to 71 percent of the vote. He became Speaker of the House in 2011 after Republicans gained the majority of seats. He was re-elected for a third term as House Speaker in 2015, although the last election resulted in a significant portion of House Republicans attempting to remove him. Conservative Republicans have had tense moments with Boehner, especially over fiscal issues. He fought to raise the debt ceiling and faced more conflict in the impeding debate next week over keeping the government open. He aligned with Democratics in those showdowns, which further angered the conservative base.

The House approved a resolution in 2014 authorizing Boehner to sue President Barack Obama over executive orders the president issued regarding the 2010 Affordable Health Care Act. The House alleged the president abused his powers, disregarding Congress and the U.S. Constitution.

Judge Rosemary M. Collyer of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., issued a decision to let the lawsuit move forward. The Obama administration announced on Sept. 21 that it will appeal the decision to gain a federal appeals court review.

Ouch: See Why Fired-Up Glenn Beck Is ‘Embarrassed’ He Ever Supported The ‘Clown’ Sarah Palin

During his Thursday radio broadcast, conservative talker Glenn Beck came out swinging at Sarah Palin, calling her a “clown,” saying he has no idea what she stands for, and insisting that he is “embarrassed” he ever supported her. But only a day later, Beck was trying to walk back at least some of those comments.

During his Thursday radio show, Beck began his comments about Palin by talking about President Obama’s Iran nuke deal. Soon, though, he was slamming Palin hard.

“Yeah, I’m going to say it,” Beck began. “I don’t care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I’m embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I’m embarrassed.”

“Why do I say that about Sarah Palin? How can you say that about Sarah Palin? Because I don’t know who she is any more, I don’t know what she stands for,” Beck continued.

Beck then criticized Palin for her kind words about Donald Trump, the latter of whom Beck is decidedly against.

“I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump,” Beck said. “What the hell is that? I don’t even know who she is any more. I don’t know what she cares for. I don’t know. She doesn’t know what I stand for. We had a falling out long ago because she listened to people who were lying to her about me. Fine. Don’t care. I don’t care.”

Beck then went on to attack Trump as a “third grader” and said he doesn’t want to deal with the real estate mogul.

But by the next day, Beck jumped on to his Facebook page to walk back some of his anti-Palin diatribe.

“We all have bad days and bad moments,” Beck explained to fans. “Today was one of mine.”

Beck went on to apologize at least for the “clown” comment.

“I stand by all of my comments on Sarah Palin,” Beck wrote in his post, “EXCEPT when I called her a clown. It was unkind, childish and wrong of me to name call.”

Beck went on to reiterate that he “doesn’t know who Palin is” any more, echoing what he said on his show. He also continued with his criticism of Palin’s support of Trump.

Beck, though, hinted that in the past, he felt “wrongly accused and judged by her and Todd [Palin’s husband]” and said that some of his frustration with Palin stems from that unstated conflict.

But in closing, Beck again said he was sorry for being “unkind,” saying: “That is where I owe Sarah Palin an apology. I was unkind and inaccurate.”

Still, he stuck with his criticism on the substance of the matter, even if it loses him all his audience.

“It may mean that I don’t have a single listener left in the end but I would rather be true to myself, principles and to my God than to parties, cliques or popularity. But I never want to lose anyone because I said something cruel or untrue.”

Watch: One Word Sarah Palin Just Said At DC Rally Has Black Lives Matter Furious

Sarah Palin spoke to an energetic group at Wednesday’s rally against the Iranian nuclear deal, beginning her address with special recognition of the men and women who made such an event possible.

“If you love that freedom,” she asserted, “thank a vet. We thank you!”

She went on to recognize the sacrifice of other Americans tasked with protecting everyone else, offering a dig at those who continue to protest and attack law enforcement officers.

“And you know, since our president won’t say it,” she continued, “since he still hasn’t called off the dogs, we’ll say it: Police officers and first responders all across this great land, we got your back. We salute you. Thank you, police officers.”

Apparently identifying themselves in Palin’s description, several activists associated with the Black Lives Matter movement expressed disdain on social media. Shaun King, who became the subject of controversy after it was revealed that he was a white man portraying himself as an oppressed black man, was one of the more prominent Twitter detractors.

Of course, it was apparent from the comments that followed his tweet that many do not share his moral outrage. More than a few commenters lamented that Palin’s rebuke was too timid.


Others found the comparison unfair for a different reason.

Phil Robertson, Trump, Cruz, Palin, And Beck Team Up To Send Obama An EPIC Message

Watch LIVE: Iran Rally with Donald Trump and Ted Cruz

A star-studded cast is expected at a rally on the Capitol steps in Washington on Wednesday to voice their opposition to the Iranian nuclear agreement. The event will be headlined by presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

The rally is being sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots and the Zionist Organization of America. Cruz was originally tapped as the headliner, but the candidate turned around and invited Trump to join him two weeks ago, and The Donald accepted.

Cruz explained why he is willing to share the stage with his GOP rival. “The reason’s not complicated,” Cruz told reporters outside a recent tea party rally. “Number one: I like Donald. He’s a friend of mine. But when Donald arrives at an event, he brings an army of TV reporters. He brings an army of cameras that show up. And Donald’s being there — he very graciously accepted — means the mainstream media will cover the event.”

Others slated to appear at Wednesday’s rally include: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, radio talk show hosts Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, as well as several members of Congress – Reps. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala.; Dave Brat, R-Va.; Rep. Jim Bridenstine, R-Okla.; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.; Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C; Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan.; Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla.; Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.; Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan.; and Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y. 

Tea Party Patriot president Jenny Beth Martin told Breitbart News regarding the event: “We’re excited we’re going to be able to let Congress know the majority of Americans think this Iran deal is bad for America. We hope that Congress, especially the senators who have come out in favor of the deal, will vote to put America and America’s security above party loyalty.”

Regarding the deal Cruz asked: “Have any of y’all seen the movie ‘Scarface?’” according to CNN. “This is the equivalent of law enforcement picking up the phone and calling Tony Montana and saying, ‘Hey Tony, you got any drugs?’ ‘I don’t got no drugs.’ ‘Thank you, Tony.’ That is essentially the Iranian nuclear inspection regime.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the deal’s fiercest critics, has listed several reasons he opposes it:

  1. It lifts economic sanctions against the rogue regime.
  2. It keeps Iran’s nuclear infrastructure in place.
  3. It gives Iran 24 days to respond to any inspection of facilities by the U.N.

A vote in Congress is expected this week.

Sarah Palin, In A Trump Administration, Would Fire This Governmental Agency

Video Transcript:

If given the opportunity in a Donald Trump cabinet, Sarah Palin says she’d fire this inefficient agency.

Palin: “I think a lot about the Department of Energy, and if I were head of that, I would get rid of it.”

She argued that instead of relying on the imports from unfriendly foreign nations, our states should be in control.

And I would let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. So, you know, if I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but uhm, it would be, it would be really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.

Donald Trump has said the former Alaska governor would be welcome in his administration.

Trump: “I mean I would love that ‘cause she really is somebody that knows what’s happening and she’s a special person, she’s really a special person. I still have people saying, ‘Oh, get Sarah’s support, get Sarah’s support,’ no matter where I go.”

The Department of Energy was created during the Carter administration to consolidate energy policy after the 1973 oil embargo. It now boasts a yearly budget of nearly $30 billion.

Why does Palin want to dissolve the DOE? What do they actually accomplish? Should more governmental agencies be put out of business? Share and comment below.
