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.

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

The Constitution is under assault. So is our way of life.

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

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
