Our republic: Lost cause or worth the fight?

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.

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.

In 2007, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and to Al Gore “for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.” Following the award, the IPCC leadership sent personalized certificates “for contributing to the award”[SNIP]Yet at least 12 recipients claimed their certificates were Nobel Peace Prizes (see fakenobellaureates.com), including Steve Running of the University of Montana and

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

The murder of American photojournalist James Foley by hooded thugs in the Islamic State ought to unite our country in a passion for justice, but it won’t. Our country no longer strives for justice. Otherwise the death of James Foley would never have happened. The terrorists who now control nearly half of Iraq and a good portion of Syria would have been exterminated long ago like the pestilent plague they are. It’s not just our failure to wage war against evil overseas either that reveals our decline as a great nation. You only have to look to the disaster in Ferguson, Missouri,

Conservative readers question me on a regular basis about why the Daily Inter Lake publishes the somewhat confrontational column by liberal Gene Lyons every week. The straightforward answer is because liberals exist and therefore they need a column to read. Far be it from me to shut down the free exchange of ideas.(SNIP)What brings me out of the closet as a Lyons reader, however, is last Thursday’s column in which he bravely but foolishly defended the bedraggled climate scientist Michael Mann from the ripostes of Mark Steyn, perhaps the most capably armed social critic since Edmund Wilson.According to Lyons, Steyn

The absurd attacks on Israel for exercising its right of self-defense in the past few weeks have only been surpassed in foolhardy dangerousness by the world’s virtual silence about the genocide being practiced against Christians and other minority religions in the Islamic State formerly known as northwestern Iraq. No matter how you try to wrap your head around the hypocrisy of people calling out Israel for supposed war crimes while at the same time closing their eyes to the uncomfortable truth of the barbaric genocide being waged by Islamic fundamentalists, you cannot do so. Hypocrisy of this dimension is almost demonic.

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas recently ordered 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the state’s border with Mexico to assist the Border Patrol in responding to the growing crisis of illegal entry.[SNIP]The only problem is that Perry’s deployment order is symbolic, not serious, and it won’t do any good until it becomes serious. It is unlikely that Perry is any more likely than any other politician to put his own personal interest second, and the needs of the nation first, but the fact of the matter is we don’t need 1,000 troops on the border, we need 10,000, maybe more.

Let’s put it in context: If John Walsh had plagiarized while working in the newsroom at the Daily Inter Lake, he would have been sent packing. That’s because credibility is the gold standard for a newspaper or any other news gathering organization. Plagiarism — taking credit for someone else’s words — is at its root another form of lying, and a newspaper has no credibility if it tolerates lying. Whether the same standard applies in the Senate is up for debate. A story in the New York Times last week demonstrated conclusively that Sen. Walsh had plagiarized large portions of his 2007 master’s thesis at the Army War College in

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam.

Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed.

When reporters began to grill Rice about whether the president had already given the authorization to the militarily to bomb in Syria, Rice kept repeating they would not be releasing information on the timing of those air strikes. Reporters continued to push with several trying to explain their question is if the president has already given authorization. Laughing uncomfortably Rice exited the room

The National Security Advisor of the United States did something astonishing yesterday. In the middle of a reporter’s questioning, she bolted from the podium of the White House pressroom, saying, “Nice to see you,” fleeing a situation she evidently was unable to cope with. The question that caused Ms. Rice to flee was a fairly simple one: whether or not the president has authorized the bombing of targets in Syria. Rice responded multiple times that the timing of strikes would not be released, but that was not the question at hand, and reporters pressed her on whether her boss had authorized

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined
