Sarah Palin is urging Florida voters to vote for Newt Gingrich on Tuesday in their state’s Republican primary.
“Vote for Newt,” Palin told Jeanine Pirro, host of the Fox News weekend program “Justice with Jeanine.”
Palin made a passionate plea for Republican voters to reject Mitt Romney in Florida to keep the primary process going forward.
The former Alaska governor made it crystal clear that she favors former House Speaker Gingrich, suggesting that the Republican establishment in New York and Washington is trying to anoint former Massachusetts Gov. Romney the GOP nominee.
“And I say, you know, you’ve got to rage against the machine at this point in order to defend our republic and save what is good and secure and prosperous about our nation,” Palin said. “We need somebody who is engaged in sudden and relentless reform and is not afraid to shake up the establishment. So, if for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for Newt, annoy a liberal, vote Newt, keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going.”
Here are key points Palin made on Fox:
- “Ronald Reagan wasn’t afraid to take on sitting members of his own party who were in office. He challenged a sitting Republican. He knew politics of personal destruction hurt the cause of conservatism. What we see today what happened there in Florida this past week — it’s gone beyond the pale, gone beyond aggressive and fair campaigning against an opponent.”
- Rick Santorum pointed out that Romney “drew first blood, and at first, Newt Gingrich didn’t respond — he wanted to take the high road . . . [Newt] announced his intention to take the high road, but when you’re continually hit and bombarded with negative rewritten history about yourself and your record, you have to hit back. And that’s what you saw Newt Gingrich engage in . . .”
- “I’ve been the proponent of continuing this vetting process and aggressive debate. It should be fair though the healthy debate that our country the electorate will benefit from . . . We see these pundits and politicos and elites and the far away Washington, D.C., beltway telling the electorate that by Florida it’s going to be all wrapped up and we’ll have our nominee.”
- “Well, look at the players in the establishment who are fighting so hard against [Newt]. They want to crucify him because he’s tapped into that average everyday American tea party, grass-roots movement that has said enough is enough of the establishment that tries to run the show and tweak rules and laws and regulations for their own good and not for our nation’s own good.”
- “Both party machines and many in the media are trying to crucify Newt Gingrich for bucking the tide and bucking the establishment. That tells you something. I say you have got to rage against the machine at this point in order to defend our republic . . . Vote for Newt, annoy a liberal. Vote Newt. Keep this vetting process going.”
- “Which candidate is most passionate about the sudden and relentless reform that’s needed? Which candidate understands that government is not the answer? Not on a state level — same when it comes to mandating what level of healthcare you must purchase? . . . I’ve appreciated again Newt Gingrich. His style in debates, his thinking, his way of explaining what he stands for, so I think that in a debate Newt Gingrich would clobber Barack Obama. That’s one step closer to the voters being able to have a tool to make up their minds whether it should be Obama or the GOP nominee.”

Rev. Widmon and Sarah Palin say it best about Newt Gingrich and vicious attacks by the republican establishment.
SOPA is an English acronym for the new House Bill 3261: Stop Online Piracy Act. The acronym, which means “soup” in Spanish, has unwittingly been created by Congressional Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX21). Congressman Smith, a real Texan in Spanish territory, it is presumed, should have thought of this before he created the bill. Well, this act is plain “soup” – and nuts, too.
The republicans never cease to surprise the world. For three instances, why create a bill to regulate commerce when republicans claim to promote limited government? – Aye,! says the Captain. Why impose more regulation and law enforcement on the U.S. Department of Justice when republicans claim it can not enforce security on the American border? – Aye,! says the Captain. Why even think that the Federal government could even do a better job of protecting intellectual rights than the private sector could? – Double Aye,! says the Captain.
SOPA and its sister Senate act, PIPA (Protect IP Act), have the high-sounding title, “To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes.” In other words, the title should read, “To regulate commerce by allowing special interests to benefit over others, and for other purposes.”
As afraid as one is able to admit, the republicans have written a dangerous bill for commerce that simply can be self-regulated by free market commerce. Consequently, the American taxpayer saves his taxes, the Federal government saves its face, and free commerce does and makes the necessary corrections. Let one not oversimply state that some capitalists love to use the government to compete. That isn’t right, and its called crony capitalism. Then, let all capitalists work in the free market, which would be better in terms of pricing and available logistics for all.
Americans, listen to wisdom. Was it not Sun Tzu in the “The Art of War” who principled a very important point in warfare: Never fight a superior force? Do Americans really believe that Mitt Romney can defeat Barack Obama, the superior force? Absolutely not BECAUSE Romney is no where close to being as tough, politically, arguably, intellectually, and wisely, as Newt Gingrich. In the presidential primary campaign Newt has shown that he is perceived like the USS George Washington (CVN-73) aircraft supercarrier to Mitt Romney like the USS Panay river gunboat on the Yangtze patrol. There is no comparison in terms of conservatism either: Newt is the conservative republican which makes the republican establishment nervous and guilty, because it has failed. It’s time for the American people to set America straight on the right course with Newt Gingrich.

|Dear Conservative,By a double-digit margin, we won a dramatic victory in the all-important South Carolina Primary.
We did what the establishment said could not be done and we put our campaign on a path to winning the Republican nomination. We won because people are sick of and tired of the national establishment telling them what they are allowed to think and believe, and you saw that Saturday night.
I believe that we will defeat Barack Obama in the general election, and put America back on track toward strength and prosperity. But we need your help to get there. Will you join us?
Today, our campaign turns to the crucial primary state of Florida. The race is between a clear establishment moderate in Mitt Romney and a clear Reagan conservative with a record going all the way back to the 1970s. It’s a stark contrast. Make no mistake, this is a battle between the conservative grassroots and the moderate establishment for the heart and soul of the Republican Party.
Conservatives are ready for somebody who will go to Washington and speak for them, not somebody who speaks on behalf of the establishment. The establishment is right to be worried about a Gingrich nomination because a Gingrich nomination means that we’re going to change things, we’re going to make them very uncomfortable and we’re going to demand real change in Washington.
Going forward, there is only one important question for conservatives to ask themselves: Who is the best candidate to defeat Barack Obama? I believe that a second term for Barack Obama will be a disaster for this country and I am committed to beating him. I think I’ve proven I could take him on in a series of debates and undo his billion-dollar campaign. It’s very important that we have a candidate who’s strong enough, and tough enough to be able to take on President Obama in a series of debates.
There is no longer any doubt that we can win the GOP nomination. The other candidates are good men whom I deeply respect, but it is time for conservatives to come together and unite behind one authentic, Reagan conservative who can win.
As I write this, Barack Obama and the Democrats are raising thousands of dollars per hour, waiting for a Republican nominee to emerge. He’s a radical, secular socialist who wants to reinvent America in the image of the faded, decrepit Republics of Western Europe.
If I become the nominee, I will hold President Obama accountable. I will defeat him in the debates and show the American people that there is a better, more conservative direction.
This is not just a Presidential campaign. It’s a battle for the future of this country. That’s why I will immediately challenge President Obama to a series of three hour Lincoln-Douglas style debates, and make him defend the passage of ObamaCare, 15 trillion dollars in debt, and out of control unemployment. I’ll even let him use his teleprompter!
Florida is only one week away, and the Romney campaign is already going back to their old ways of negative attack ads to try and tear us down. We can’t let that happen again. We must raise the necessary resources in the next 48 hours to fund our television campaign for Florida so that I can tell the truth to the American people.
To paraphrase President Reagan, “A recession is when your neighbor loses his job, a depression is when you lose your job, and a recovery will be when Obama loses his job.”
Your contribution and support will put us over the top in Florida and our nation one step closer putting a conservative in the White House.
Americans are smart to decide. Do they want the “republican establishment” Mitt Romney or the conservative republican Newt Gingrich? The polls show that these two men will receive the most Florida votes among them and Rick Santorum and Ron Paul in the Florida closed republican primary.
The republican establishment is alive and well and “keeps on ticking.” The republican establishment would do just about anything to have Mitt Romney win in the Florida primary. By the results of the CNN Florida Presidential debate in Jacksonville, Florida, last night, it is very clear that the republican establishment wants Mitt Romney to win in the Florida Republican primary on January 31, 2012.
Mitt Romney’s campaign staff was more than ready last night – it was like attrition warfare – hurls as many bombs as possible, don’t worry about hitting the target, just stop Newt from talking. Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney’s campaign manager, probably came up with that strategy. Well, it worked. What could Newt do but hunker down while the missiles miss and the bombs explode all around him. Stevens of Stevens and Schriefer ordered a suppression strategy because Newt is lethally accurate when it comes to answering U.S. Media questions, like CNN’s. But the point is this: notice how the beloved republican establishment wants to win – “If Newt answers, we lose. If Newt responds, we lose. If Newt talks, we lose.” The republican establishment knows whats at stake here. Even Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) can’t decide what side he’s on – and other Florida republican congressman, too.
Americans are disappointed with the republican establishment. Today’s republicans are like the redcoats of yesteryear in the American Revolution. They’re the bad guys responsible, just like the democrats, for the high American debt, high American taxation, crony capitalism, and sucking up to Washington lobbyists – and – allowing huge financial bailouts that don’t work. The respect for the republican establishment is not high. Americans don’t view them as heroes.
If Romney would win the Florida closed republican primary, Americans will keep on working under depressive economic conditions, Americans will keep on watching the American debt go up, Americans will continue to see the American budget never balanced, Americans will laugh at the tiptoe diplomacy against the anti-Israel sentiment, Americans will never see a Cuban spring uprising, and Americans will winch at the hurt as the country goes moderate republican or worse. Nevertheless, Americans will continue to be the great Americans that they are even under a republican “suppressive” establishment.
Americans will also support Newt Gingrich and see him move and win around the suppressive republican establishment.
It is not a “bad” thing to be poor and “young.” Yet, the U.S. Media uses the “poor” and “young” to bring more government programs into existence than ever before in American history. If the U.S. Media took the position that the “poor” flourishes in the life-invigorating model of service and truth, then the philosophy of being poor changes outstandingly. If the U.S. Media promoted the position that American youth rejuvenate the nature of human life and ideals in self-gift and self-truth, then the existence of being young remains forever.
What the U.S. Media strives to achieve in success and in wealth is to use and abuse the poor and young. With its élite goals of liberalism, including elements of socialism, communism and wealth; it recreates systemic government structures as history churns in the modern era, not for the poor and young – but for itself, the U.S Media élite. One would say that the U.S. Media would kill to achieve its goal. This is no wonder as the means to a good end is usually an evil means, and it is immoral to use an evil means to achieve a good end. Convincing of morality will not appeal, though, because to the U.S. Media it is unreal rhetoric or absolutely changeable. Morality has been dragged down like a broken statue of Lenin left for photography to capture defeat.
America needs a leader who recognizes that the poor and youth are dignified people. A leader who understands the dignity they already have and practice in their life and work. A leader who recognizes that the poor and youth already know that the government can not give dignity and logistics – that dignity comes from the Supreme source and logistics comes from ownership of private property and opportunity to work for private property.
Today the convincing quality is man, leader – one who stands up and says something good – and keeps on saying it. A man who can be dragged down, but gets back up. If an argument were leaning at a door nearby, he would pick it up and accurately shoot it. He would not waver, he would not stumble, he would not be confounded by the U.S. Media. He would stand up to that garden variety Media behemoth with its flies swirling around its mouth and tell it like it is, even though truth is sometimes offensive-sounding. Truth could be the antidote to American complacency.
The numbness of the sting of the U.S. Media is so pervasive that Americans have become totally complacent to morality, logic, and self-preservation. The idea that somehow Americans are the wrong-doers in the world still persists in the U.S. Media. Newt Gingrich has written extensively on American Exceptionalism – the idea that America started it right in the American Revolution: tearing down tyranny and replacing rule by the people at the cost of shedding American colonial blood. To this day Americans in the military shed their blood for American Exceptionalism, though they may not be totally aware of it by the sting of the U.S. Media.
If Americans want a leader to stand up to the U.S. Media and their liberal powerbrokers, if poor and young Americans alike want to own property by having an opportunity to work to gain property and thereby experience their dignity, if Americans want a leader to help them with their complacency, then the course of America becomes very clear with Newt Gingrich.
Americans, then, know who is the best candidate, Newt Gingrich, to lead the American people down the right course for all Americans. Americans, then, support Newt Gingrich for president.

Dear James,I am one of the countless number of Americans who know firsthand that, in this country, a person may be born into modest circumstances, but that he comes into the world blessed in ways that have been unimaginable to the vast majority of people who have ever lived. We are born with the birthright of freedom and opportunity – free to make our own choices about the important things in life and the opportunity to fulfill our God-given potential.
The greatest fear that I have for my country is that our government now has us on a different path. Instead of freedom and opportunity, it is one of debt, dependence division and decline – a path that will weaken our country and sap the vitality of the American people.
I believe that we are at a tipping point, one from which we may not return. To avoid these disastrous consequences, our country needs leadership that is fearless and confident, a candidate who can give voice to the concerns and frustrations of the American people, a candidate who understands – and will never apologize for – American Exceptionalism.
We don’t need to just manage the way Washington works. We need to fundamentally change Washington. We need someone who has the courage and ability to communicate the truth to the American people. Someone who will explain the hard choices that we must make if we are to give our children and grandchildren the same opportunities our forefathers bestowed on us and avoid the fate that other great nations have suffered throughout history. I believe that person is Newt Gingrich. And that is why I strongly support him and his candidacy for President of the United States.
We are just a few days away from a very important primary in the Sunshine State, and we have the opportunity to build on this campaign’s momentum with a victory in Florida. The stakes have never been higher, and I’m challenging you to join me in standing with Newt Gingrich by making a donation today.
America needs someone who is able to articulate the message of growth, free enterprise and freedom, someone who knows that bold ideas have preceded every major achievement of mankind – including the United States of America. America needs Newt Gingrich.
