Our republic: Lost cause or worth the fight?
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele

Sarah Palin and John Boehner should kiss and make up. They owe it to the country, no matter how uncomfortable the idea makes them or us feel! Palin is the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate who has become a Tea Party maverick, and Boehner is the Republican speaker of the House who is a GOP establishment dinosaur. Last week the battle lines were clearly drawn between these two camps of the Republican Party. Palin called for the impeachment of President Obama, in particular because of his abdication of responsibility for defending our southern border. Boehner, on the other

If you stand on the integrity of principle, there is no way to "kiss and make up".

The way the establishment RINO GOP is going is far away from our founding principles.

The very notion that big government trumps the rights of the states and taxes with impunity is foreign to the founding principles that made this nation great.

That this country can stand growth of the welfare state with its unfunded mandates is about to outpace the growth rate of being able to pay for it, even with borrowed capital from foreign banks.

The fact that the GOP is nowhere to be seen in defending the sovereignty of our borders makes it appear that it is no longer standing for our country, but that it has sold out to the money interests and virtually colluded for our demise with Obama.

The idea that high taxes, big government, big expanding welfare rolls and open borders is to our nation´s benefit as long as "republicans are in charge" is just FLAT OUT WRONG.

The idea that socialism will work as long as Barack Hussein Obama is running things is just another instance were this has NEVER WORKED in thousands of years of history and is a fallacy. A "republican" cannot make socialism work either.

So, the proverbial line is drawn in the stand--which side are you going to stand?

As usual, Sarah is out front on an issue that will continue to snowball. Americans, being myopic, are concentrating on only one issue right now. Obama´s treasonous (IMO) collusion with foreign governments to defeat our southern border.

Lest we forget, the world is on fire right now at least in part due to his lack of a coherent foreign policy. Crimea, Ukraine, Israel, Syria, Iraq and on and on. There are at least a dozen more. I don´t believe we have 2-1/2 years to wait for Obama´s departure.

In the end, we will say what we´ve been saying more and more. Sarah was right from the beginning.

This Child play has to stop!
The Republicans must learn how to use the microphone re FDR, Clinton and Obama..all were wrong yet they said everything so nicely!

A less than perfect Republican is better than any democrat!
Let us please not shoot ourselves in the foot!

Read the Forgotten Man..and you will see a mirror image of our failed policies of today!

FDR, Clinton and Obama are failed presidencies!

Over control and over regulation! The only thing that saved FDR was a war, the only thing that saved Clinton was the peace he inherited and blew, (The Cole and 911) Obama inherited a compliant press, and the refusal to call himself half white!

Realizing that if Barry Sotero can claim to be a constitutional scholar, then I sure as heck should be . However , I´m not and I would like someone ( and I know you´re out there) to tell me just what is the penalty that Mac Daddy Long Legs would suffer should Boehner´s lawsuit prevail.

There are INSIDERS (politicians) and OUTSIDERS (us ragtag Americans). Boehner is an insider. Winning elections turn victors into power mongers.

Reply 5, Thank you for introducing us, the great unwashed, to a new and very descriptive word in framing the dilemma of your assumption.

The yard stick to use in measuring the aforementioned quandary is:

Sarah Palin was elected by the people of Alaska, our largest state in terms of size and resources, to be their governor and she did a good job of stewardship over the people´s interests and financial well being.

John Boehner was chosen by approximately one sixteenth of the people of Ohio to go to Washington, D.C., and and commence his ascendency to the speakers job, which he accomplished successfully.

(foot note: the dictionary defines dilettante as a person who "dabbles" at something of interest to said person)

Again, thanks for causing us all to stop and think.

So, how about Boehner "giving in" and doing what his base demands, and what his own party platform dictates?

Didn´t think so.

The GOP elites are complicit in this treason, and are part of the problem.

That is why we are well past reconciliation.

This republic can no longer stand. WTP have no longer thought of the great gift we were given. It has been taken for granted that it is here, will always be here and be passed on to future generations. Had the Nation been born due to the achievement of their hard work would they feel differently about tossing it away. The fact that many are so casual about their votes that they vote for felons, con men, men with no soul or inner core and no love of country....how can we stand? Look at what/who is in office. Is this a government or a criminal facility? This is not a political game. This is real life and what is chosen will be something passed on to your children and their off spring. Should you want for them the same opportunity most here have been blessed with, the decision must be given a great deal of thought

OTOH, never again will a Republican be trusted (think MS..) and as in the past and continuing in the future, A Rat will only get this vote after my death. Another party- a true Conservative party is needed ASAP. It has been needed for a long, long while.

Soap box put away.

When I was growing up in Stony Point, N.Y., I was surrounded by reminders of the birth of our nation, and the sacrifices that were made to wrest our liberty from the yoke of a tyrant. [SNIP]Is there any reason to harp on the battles of yesteryear? To ask such a question in today’s politically correct climate is almost to invite calumny. After all, we are at peace, aren’t we? Oh wait, no, we are at war. But yet there is no immediate danger to our sovereignty, is there? Oh wait, there is an entire worldwide culture which would destroy

Four-star Gen. James Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, used a speaking engagement at the Brookings Institute on Tuesday to deliver a stinging rebuke of the Obama administration’s handling of Iraq. “I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don’t think we’d be in the same shape we’re in today,” Gen. Amos said, the Fiscal Times reported Wednesday. It is rare for an active-duty serviceman to give such blunt public criticism of a sitting president. While

Along with citing a list of moderate GOP governors with last names like Bush and Christie as potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates, "Arizona Sen. John McCain said Thursday that he believes Republicans can defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016, but only if they pass immigration reform." Calling Hillary Clinton the "odds-on favorite right now“ to win the White House in 2016, McCain added, "I expect it to be very competitive, except if we don’t enact some kind of comprehensive immigration reform, I do not see a way for us to really win a general election.”

Political pundits are divided about the merits of House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama´s employer mandate. But should the chief executive be worried that two constitutional law experts — one a conservative, the other a liberal who voted for Obama — not only think the suit has merit but will likely succeed? The two backing Boehner and two constitutional law experts who oppose the suit testified Wednesday before the House Rules Committee. The uber presidency George Washington University Law Prof. Jonathan Turley voted for Obama but in recent months has become perhaps the most visible critic of what he views as a

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) indicated today that if President Barack Obama takes actions that exceed his constitutional authority, the House of Representatives has no plans to use its own constitutional authority to withhold funding from those actions. At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse. So, if the President takes actions that exceed his Constitutional authority, will you withhold funding for those actions in the next must-pass

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power posted photos on Twitter Wednesday to illustrate the purported effects of climate change on a West African nation’s coastline, but the pictures show a hotel that collapsed into the sea 12 years ago, the victim of erosion blamed largely on years of illegal mining of coastal sand. “Had sobering meeting with Benin’s U.N. Ambassador, who described the devastating effects of climate change on his coastal country,” she tweeted. “Showed me chilling photos of eroding coastline, said ‘that’s climate change – a daily life of falling in the sea.’”

Not that I’ve actually tried Chick-fil-A, but I’m open-minded enough to not flat-out hate it, especially now that the American people have voted with their mouths and helped Chick-fil-A overtake Kentucky Fried Chicken to become “America’s largest chicken chain.” Wow.

Some Republicans are beginning to extend their free-market, limited-government beliefs to include opposition to corporate welfare, like the Export-Import Bank. Many conservatives hate the idea of centralized education standards driven by a coalition of unaccountable bureaucrats and big business. K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking: What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?
