Paul Ryan’s former staffer running to replace him, hiding the fact, in Primary

Update. Ryan’s Protege Wins! Get about 51 percent with many candidates in the race.

 

Here is a little jewel peeking out of the swamp? Will Ryan’s former staffer, Steil beat out a former Green Beret, Polce and who looks like a true conservative in the GOP primary? This may be a true bell weather election, although he is hiding the fact that he was a former staffer. I am surprised that Trump hasn’t come out in support of Steil.

Will Paul Ryan’s Constituents Say No to the Swamp This Time?

It’s a challenge of the professional staffer vs. the citizen statesman, and it’s playing out in Paul Ryan’s own district, with his former staffer Bryan Steil running against Nick Polce, a Green Beret and conservative, for the Republican nomination.

Tuesday, Paul Ryan’s constituents in the first district of Wisconsin will tell the country whether their firsthand knowledge of being represented by Speaker Paul Ryan has left them wanting more of the same or a jolt of conservative, Swamp-fighting change.

Polce is taking on what in any other political climate may have been the default choice: Paul Ryan’s staffer Steil. The two are running in a field of five total Republicans vying for the nomination.

Steil, who was endorsed by his former boss Paul Ryan, has curiously omitted any mention of having worked for the polarizing Republican in his website bio.

Polce moved from Texas to the Wisconsin district with one purpose: challenge and defeat Paul Ryan. Polce and his wife, Karla, had their first child in 2016, moved to Wisconsin to join the ranks of our founding non-career politicians, standing up for free enterprise, self-government and real Constitution principles.

He is a strong constitutionalist who says he decided to run for office to defeat career politicians.

Paul Ryan sticks the knife into Trump – et tu brute?

 

 

Paul Ryan couldn’t even wait until after the fall election to stick the knife into Trump. In a revealing “gotcha” piece at the New York Times on Tuesday, Ryan leaves little to the imagination about how he feels towards Trump and plenty of dog food for the media hounds to feast on. There are a number of YouTube media types analyzing the piece out there, I found them all sickening. Yes, the Morning Joe was the worst. I’ll spare you and give you this.

At least they attack Ryan.

Thank you, Paul Ryan, for helping the Democrats sweep the GOP from power in November! It might not have been possible without your help!

 

 

Looks like Paul Ryan forgot who was who and in what position. After all, the people spoke and elected Trump, not Paul Ryan.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he’s “very comfortable with the decisions” he’s made during the Trump administration. “I would make them again, do it again the same way,” he told The New York Times in an interview published Tuesday.

Ryan made a determination after Trump’s election that to defy the president too forcefully would invite a counterreaction. He tends to speak of the commander-in-chief as if he were sharing a coping strategy on dealing with a Ritalin-deprived child. “It boomerangs,” Ryan says of being too critical of Trump. “He goes in the other direction, so that’s not effective.” He added, “The pissing match doesn’t work.”

 

Many have criticized Ryan for his soft approach to criticizing the president’s controversial moves, as he rarely speaks directly in opposition to President Donald Trump’s statements, but the speaker says he’s helped to avoid “tragedy” behind the scenes.

“I can look myself in the mirror at the end of the day and say I avoided that tragedy, I avoided that tragedy, I avoided that tragedy,” said Ryan. “I advanced this goal, I advanced this goal, I advanced this goal.”

When asked exactly what tragedies he’s helped avoided, Ryan returned to his tactical silence: “No, I don’t want to do that,” he told the Times. “That’s more than I usually say.” Read more at

Trojan House Bill will allow much of the world to migrate to the USA

 

Now we know why Paul Ryan is retiring. He will approve a Trojan Horse as he defies Trump and sends all in the world who claims\ abuse to just walk on in. The little weasels on the House Appropriations committee approved this by a voice vote. The only GOP member who spoke out against the easy-migration rules was Texas Rep. John Carter.

And of course, the Chair of the Committee is retiring and walking away after leaving this bomb. Now it goes to Ryan’s Committee. Reports are it is likely to pass. Rinos will join the Democrats to pass this number. You betcha. Yet no reports in the media of any merit.

 

Weakened asylum rules being pushed by Democrats and the Republican establishment would allow the entire populations of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador the right to migrate to the United States.

 

New asylum rules approved by the GOP majority and Democrat minority House Appropriations Committee would give the right to migrate to the United States to a foreign population at least half the size of the American Midwest.

Two asylum rules pushed by Rep. David Price (D-NC) as well as Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and approved by the GOP-majority House Appropriations Committee would allow foreign nationals seeking refuge in the U.S. to migrate based on claims that they are fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence.

The asylum standards would be a direct rebuke of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ efforts to strengthen the country’s lax asylum system. He made clear in a memo that claiming to be fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence are not legitimate claims for asylum in the U.S.

The Republican establishment and Democrats’ reversal of Sessions’ memo would give the full populations of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras the right to migrate and seek asylum in the U.S., as all three Central American countries have been crippled for years by gangs.

As Breitbart News noted, this translates to about 32 million Central Americans being given the right to migrate. This would mean a foreign population about half the size of the American Midwest — where 67 million Americans live — would have the right to come to the country and permanently resettle.

The House Committee on Appropriations voted Wednesday afternoon to bar government officials from spending any time or money on Sessions’ reform. The vote was taken as legislators debate and vote on amendments to the 2019 spending bill. The bill will be reviewed next by the rules committee — which is controlled by House Speaker Paul Ryan — and then will be sent to the floor for a vote. More at Breitbart

The 41 Republicans who killed the Goodlatte Immigration Reform Bill

 

In spite of the gnashing of teeth over the jacket our First Lady had on with the infamous statement: “I don’t really care do you?” which really sums up no doubt how she feels, the world did continue.

Look, as well, it is sad to lose Charles Krauthammer, but enough already Fox. Hours of non-stop tribute, I get it. He is your pal. I am sad too.

Now this morning we are back at the tribute as I thrash about trying to find something to post about that isn’t totally depressing.

OK.  Let’s look at the latest epic fail of GOP leadership as Ryan flails about doing his best to destroy the party on his way out the door. Paul, don’t let the door hit you whatever as you go out the door. You should have resigned as soon as you decided to hang it up to make the really big bucks.

So here voters can check their Rep to see if they were a “Nay” for further reference, and why not give him/her a jingle either way.

The House voted down an immigration reform bill sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., Thursday that would have dramatically increased border security and provided a pathway to citizenship for roughly 700,000 of the 1.8 million so-called “Dreamers” living in the United States.

The bill — the more conservative option of two pieces of immigration legislation originally scheduled to be voted on this week — was defeated by a final vote of 193-231. No Democrats voted for the bill, and these 41 Republicans voted nay:

 House Vote #282
 Jun 21, 2018 2:11 p.m.
 Failed 193/231
On Passage of the Bill in the House
This bill would make sweeping changes to laws governing legal and illegal immigration. For legal immigration, it would end the diversity program and chain migration by eliminating the visa lottery green card program and green card programs for relatives other than spouses and minor children. And it would increase immigration …

Following Thursday’s failure, leadership elected to postpone the vote on the second bill — authored by Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and other members of leadership — first until Friday and then again until next week. H/T: Washington Examiner

Paul Ryan – my heart breaks for you – doesn’t want to be a weekend Dad

 

So Ryan doesn’t want to be a weekend dad. Setting aside how few days Congress actually meets, do you really think Dads are out throwing that proverbial baseball back and forth out back past the garage during the week? Throwing a few hoops? A little tag football? All during the week? Yea, those three-day weeks when Congress was in session was a real chore, but hey, I get it, you never wanted to be speaker.

So thanks Paul, don’t let the door hit you in the whatever. You never did support Trump and gave him only lip service. Saying good-bye to another swamp creature as you screw us one last time with your behemoth spending bill as you go out the door to pick up your rewards for all the gifts loaded to special interests in this last porkulus. Let’s guess what you speaking fees will be….more than Hillary’s $25K? Then there are the boards you will be on to wash the money received. Here are a few snippets from White House Dossier:

 

Aww, Paul Ryan Doesn’t Want to be a Weekend Dad #breakingmyheart

I love when people in Washington reveal how out of touch they are with the rest of the country. House

Speaker Paul Ryan, who said today he won’t run for reelection, did just that with a couple of sentences Wednesday:

One thing I have learned about teenagers is their idea of an ideal weekend is not necessarily to spend all of their time with their parents. What I realize is if I am here for one more term, my kids will only have ever known me as a weekend dad. I just can’t let that happen.

So I will be setting new priorities in my life.

A lot of us aren’t just weekend dads. We’re “Sunday” dads, since we’re working Saturdays too. Paul Ryan knows full well that once he’s out of Congress, he’ll be invited to join numerous boards and provide high-priced “consulting advice” and make millions with a 30-hour work week.

I’m so glad he’ll have weekends and more with his kids. I’m sorry he spent trillions of our dollars on the way out the door of the Capitol that we all will have to pay back.… Continue Reading

Paul Ryan piles on, Demands answers after Washington Post’s hit piece on Trump Russia

I have had it with the so-called news. It has gotten to the point of total absurdity. The final straw? Now Ryan, the traitor, has come out as well about this faux Trump leak of classified information to the Russians. Meanwhile, Hillary is getting herself a PAC together to be  the “resistance.” Folks, we are losing our Democracy. Here is Ryan:

MSNBC: Border Wall a Problem Because Birds and Bats Might Not Be Able To Fly Over It

If we thought that the wall with Mexico was on the chopping block because of Ryan, the Environmentalists promise to tie the project up with years of litigation. MSNBC is always at the ready to support anything anti-Trump, but this interview in the clip takes it to a new level in the clip below.”Birds and bats may not be able to fly over the wall.” One comment: the good news is, those animals stuck on this side won’t be endangered of being eaten. First a fast review:

GOP leaders dropping funding for border wall 

Paul Ryan apparently concedes there will be no money in the budget vote coming up later this month for a border wall. To quote The Hill:  “And some Republicans are concerned that deteriorating relations with Mexico may be too high a price to pay for the wall.” – the funds will come at a later date.

Paul Ryan- Give us your tired, your poor- our borders are open 

In the video in the post linked above, Ryan begins by adopting a left-wing narrative about GOP voters and suggesting that their opposition to mass migration is fueled by “ignorance.” Ryan rejects the idea that America is “a country”— i.e. a land with a fixed border and heritage—but instead an “idea” since ideas don’t have borders.In the wide-ranging 53 minute video, which took place in Chicago, both Gutierrez and Ryan outline their shared plan for adopting open borders: that is, a national policy of allowing companies to bring in and hire as many foreign workers as they would like. This “free movement” of people across national boundaries is the centerpiece of the open borders ideology to which Ryan has devoted much of his career.

MSNBC Is Worried That Birds (Yes, Birds) Won’t Be Able To Fly Over Trump’s Border Wall

Melvin began the segments discussing Rep. Raul Graijalva (D-AZ) and the Center for Biological Diversity’s lawsuit against the federal government over the border enforcement project. In California, the state legislature is considering punishing construction firms that participate in building the wall.
