Palin’s Orwellian Call For Primary Challenges Against Incumbent RINOs

I know I’m becoming a Lone Ranger here.  I’m taking on the Sacred Cow (R).  However, Sarah Palin is now on record calling for 2014 primary challenges against Republican incumbents who won’t resist Barack Obama’s grand fundamental transformation plan for our nation.  Bravo!  I’m all for that fight.  Vote the RINOs out of office and replace them with true conservatives.  I support Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in their battle to resist what Barack Obama and the Democrats are doing. 

But, I have a real problem with spending all this media spotlight time and ink on soliciting Sarah Palin’s advice.  Yesterday featured some commentary about an October 17 segment from Fox News’ The Kelly File, during which the former Alaska Governor was asked for her thougts about primary challenges against Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Thad Cochran (R-MS.

Palin:  “I’ve been saying for years that robust competitive primaries make for a better political system”… “It makes people work harder and express more articulately what their record is and what their intentions for our country is.”…”Heck, yeah, they’ve got to be primaried.  Otherwise we’re going down.”

Oh, please.  Spare me.  This from the woman who stepped into Arizona in 2010 and threw her support to the King of the RINOS, incumbent Senator John McCain.  If you recall, McCain was scurrying for his political life to fend off a primary challenge from a true conservative, J.D. Hayworth.  Sarah Palin, it can be credibly argued, was a vital part of swinging that election to McCain.  It was an immensely important moment in American history, ‘though it will probably fade into obscurity.

And why was it a moment of such import?  After being sworn in again, John McCain went on, as he always has, to quickly throw his support to left wing causes, including Obamacare, comprehensive immigration reform (read that: amnesty for illegal aliens), leaving the border with Mexico wide open, raising the debt ceiling, un-Constitutional American military intervention in jihadist-backed civil wars in Libya and Syria, and virtually everything else Barack Obama seeks to accomplish.  

John McCain is deeply and crucially involved in the Barack Obama “fundamental transformation” of this nation..  He is every bit that which Sarah Palin now decries as the conservative movement’s big problem – incumbent RINOs who are enabling the Socialization of America. 

Yet, when Arizonans stood a real chance of removing this unmitigated political disaster from power (as Mark Levin has described him), Sarah Palin supported John McCain.

I know I’m beating the same dead horse, but am I the only one who sees the danger in paying so much attention to her, without questioning her incredible about-face?  Does no one else recall how the Democrats used RomneyCare against the former MA Gov when he attacked Obamacare?  Does no one else remember that Obama’s team actually used Romney’s blueprint in designing the Affordable Care Act, which a huge majority of Americans doesn’t want? 

Does no one else see the parallels between Romney’s 2012 anti-Obamacare campaign rhetoric and Palin’s Orwellian hypocrisy in her statements about getting rid of the RINOs?  I’m telling you – when the American left calls Sarah Palin a hypocrite, they have a valid point of contention.  She supported the re-election of the RINOs’ RINO and now she wants the rest of the RINOs defeated.

The Republican mess is getting messier.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
