Palin ~> 'We Haven't Yet Begun to Fight!'—Exclusive Interview with Breitbart News



In my research for the film I made on Governor Palin, The Undefeated, I was constantly amazed at the anti-establishment stands she took at every step in her rise to power. Moves that a conventional politician would run from, she embraced: in Wasilla, in Juneau, and in the rise of the Tea Party. Her ability to see “over the hill” to what is really important, what really matters, is what sets her apart.

Andrew Breitbart embraced the Governor as a fellow warrior in the long struggle against a detached and venal political/media complex. He lives on in spirit and through the work of those he inspired—including, but not limited to, those who report and contribute at his site.

The Governor has been at the forefront of the fight against the Permanent Political Class and, as such, inspired Peter Schweizer and myself in our work last night on Fox News with Sean Hannity’s specialBoomtown.” We consider ourselves honored at Breitbart News to have her share with us her thoughts on the road ahead in this exclusive Q & A.

1. 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.

As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open. I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I’m willing to do that. So, we shall see. And always in the center of it all I have an awesome, full, exciting, and large family living in a very unique part of America that keeps me hopping! I love it!

2. Where do you think the country stands at the beginning of the President's 2nd term?

Before the November election I wrote that we all know what Obama’s second term will look like because we’ve seen his first. I said: “We know what we will get from a second Obama term. We will get the same failed policies. We will get Obamacare locked into law. We will get a debt crisis. We will get more inflation and higher gas prices. We will get tax increases. We will get fewer jobs. We will get more small businesses collapsing under the weight of higher taxes and unfair regulation. We will get more corruption and crony capitalism favoring the Obama administration’s friends. We will get less domestic energy development and increased dependence on terrorist sponsoring foreign regimes for our energy needs. We will get a 'blame America first' foreign policy that bows to our enemies and snubs our friends like Israel and leaves America and the world less safe. We will get less opportunity and security for ourselves and for our children.” More

  1. She stepped down from her position as a Governor with an 85% approval rating, to avoid bankrupting her state from having to answer to the leftwing lawsuits---every one of which was dismissed in a court of law. I see where you got confused though: lefties NEVER sacrifice their power for the good of whatever they want to control.
    Hate to burst your bubble (actually no I love to burst your bubble), but Sarah actually has MORE power now and on her own terms, the way it should be. She has an endorsement record better than any sitting pol on the right or the left, and a full army of liberty-loving, no-longer-silent majority of patriots marching right behind her! We Surround You!

  2. If people are not willing to stand for truth they will likely fall for anything. Big gov't, Dem or Rep, is a danger to the people. The lifers in congress need to go. They are stagnating our great country.

  3. She lost an election because John McCain would not let her go after vetting Barack Obama! He lost his own election because of it. The Governor walked away rather than have the State of Alaska pay for all the 20+ fraudulent lawsuits from Obama supporters and she has been fighting for this Country every day since she did. She offered to help Romney, but he listened to Rinos and that cost him an election. Sarah does not need or want a Title, she just loves to work for OUR COUNTRY!
