Skip to comments.Paul Ryan's "flexibility" (aka "betrayal") on gun control compromise
Posted on 06/16/2016 12:24:50 PM PDT by Javeth
As I warned you in a previous alert, Rep. Paul Ryan is pro-amnesty (giving the franchise to millions of anti-gun voters), and he has a record of compromising gun rights.
For example, Ryan voted for the Thompson-King amendment last year an anti-gun amendment that would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list.
More names into the NICS system? You mean like adding more law-abiding veterans and senior citizens?
These Americans have done nothing wrong, other than choosing to live in a country that wants to strip them of their constitutional rights, merely because theyve consulted a psychiatrist or are suffering from typical ailments related to old age.
If they go along with Paul Ryan, they will sign their own death warrant at the hands of Paul Ryans loyal lieutenants. Remember, Ryan has not even denounced the Chamber of Commerce and John Boehners outside PAC who together are trying to purge the House of conservatives.
Just as Macy warned in his article, Ryan is predictably drinking the MSM liberal Kool-Aid after the Orlando attacks, following Obama and Hillary's lead in refusing to recognize it as Islamic terrorism. Instead, he's doubling down on open borders--- compounding the problems the USA already has with mass immigration and terrorist infiltrators by meekly acceding to EVEN MORE radical Muslim refugees from Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Yemen and a ton of other countries in addition to the millions already here. On top of the amnesty he's already pushing for the illegals. All of whom, just like Macy warned, will eagerly vote for Democrats and gun confiscation legislation-- which is the reason the Muslim refugees have been getting dumped in Red States like Wyoming, Texas, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee, Kentucky and the Dakotas. (And Ryan, also unsurprisingly has given no support for the 10th Amendment lawsuits out of Tennessee and other states to block the federal government from dumping the refugees in their states and then forcing the states' taxpayers to pick up the tab.)
But then to rub salt in the wound, in accepting the Obama/Hillary claims about the Orlando terrorist attacks and refusing to acknowledge them as Islamic terror, Ryan is also buying into their narrative about how lack of gun control is the culprit, and that the only thing that needs to be done is to seize the guns from law-abiding Americans. This is the reason for Ryan's love letters to left-wing gun grabbers lately, and his timidity (like Mitch McConnell) in standing up to the Democrat troublemakers shouting for gun control and violation of the Constitution-- Ryan actually agrees with them. Ever since the mainstream media got bought up (and controlled by) liberals and cheap-labor loving globalist statists, the MSM "narrative" became that terrorism is never the fault of Islamic terrorists, but of the nasty people in the "West" (which all those Islamic terrorists seem to love flocking to as refugees) and of the 2nd Amendment and all those guns held by law-abiding citizens. Notice Ryan's convenient silence (and tacit assent) on the California court's recent violation of the 2nd Amendment. At the very least we could have hoped to have a determined opposition to this outrage and false narrative. But instead, spineless cowardly RINO suckups and sellouts like Ryan, Graham, Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, John Hoeven, Marco Rubio, Roger Wicker (all of whom also voted for the traitorous 2013 amnesty bill and support more gun control) drink the same media Kool-Aid rather than standing up for the country and the Constitution. The GOP should have gone with someone like Kevin McCarthy or Tim Huelskamp as Speaker of the House last year, but now it's no longer enough to simply oust Ryan as Speaker-- this pathetic little surrendering quisling needs to be booted out of the House in general. It won't be easy for Paul Nehlen given all the corrupt money and bribery in the Wisconsin GOPe, but Nehlen has the smarts and ruthlessness (he's run one of the most successful businesses in the state) to do it. RINO's like McCain, Ryan, Graham, Alexander, Ayotte, Flake and Wicker are the Benedict Arnolds and backstabbing Loyalists of the 21st Century, accepting payoffs and bribes from the corrupt insider establishment elites instead of standing with the people.
Which reminds me of another ominous warning a friend of mine mentioned at a barbecue a few weeks back. Anticipating the current Orwellian atmosphere of RINO and establishment treason, and the gun-grabbing push (with Senate Dems filibustering while House Dems heckle) with the spineless RINO's joining in, he warned that the time is fast running out to assure our survival in the political realm alone, that this is after all what sparked the American Revolution-- that it wasn't just something spontaneous. When the Americans realized they could never assure their basic rights and protections in the rigged, fully corrupt political systems of the British monarchy, the British then came to seize their guns, and the Americans took up arms because it was the only choice they had to survive. Even though the fighters were a minority among a squishy Loyalist majority, the Americans won because they had courage, determination and a tenacious attachment to the rights they were defending. My friend showed the frightening parallels to our current time. I hope we're not at that imminent point yet, but I'd rather not take the chance and allow RINO's like Ryan, McCain and Graham to stab us in the back and meekly "compromise" on gun rights with the Communist fascist Democrats, then wake up in 2017 to see an "official federal gun inspector" coming to my door to declare that my guns are no longer legal. The RINO's need to be crushed now-- not in some battle to be put off another day-- right alongside Hillary and the Democrats who use the Constitution as toilet paper. The Second Amendment is an inalienable right, not a mere guideline!
I hope Ryan is Cantorized
I hate that leprechaun mother @#$@#$.
If anyone’s offended, I’ll take the post down.
But i do hate him.
[I hope Ryan is Cantorized]
How are the polls for his district race?
Well reasoned and I agree 100%. We must push past these people. Trump does not need them if they are going to be traitors to the constitution. I see Ryan as totally irrelevant. They intend to obstruct his great agenda and I see us going to Executive orders — BIG TIME. To hell with these rinos.
What we’re facing now is nothing less than a full-on attempt by the globalist elites in Wall Street and D.C. to dispossess and disarm us— using our tax dollars to do it no less. And bankrupting us further in the process— that’s what Obamacare is for after all, with the crooked crony capitalist backstabbing health insurers (not to mention the “family” courts and other parasitic-type big government-driven profiteers) joining in with the autocratic Obama statists to further deprive us of our hard-earned incomes and savings, right along with our guns themselves.
Ryan makes it even easier to despise him!
I’ve already donated cash to his opponent!
I would encourage all to do the same.
Gun control laws only works if people obey it. How are words on a piece of paper going to stop someone like who shot up that gay club in Orlando? For that matter, when has a restraining order stopped anyone?
It will be a victory of ISIS if restricting firearm ownership is our nations response to the Orlando terror attack.
Hurrah for Nehlen!
He is the one to unseat the traitorous running dog for the Democrats.
leprechaun’s are offended!
I think we need a dialogue on Ryno’s own Wisconsin turf.
I think Trump should hold a rally in Wisconsin and answer point by point the criticism Paul Ryno has made of Trump policies.
Start with Cheap Labor brought on by open borders that the wall will close off.
Talk about the selling out of the American worker not doing anything to slap tariffs on goods coming from Mexico by American companies who move out of our country.
Talk about the drug problem the wall would cure. Ask why Ryan really hasn’t passed Kate’s law.
Talk about the congress funding Obamacare, instead of keeping their campaign promises to stop its funding and repeal it.
Ask Ryan why he only has Trump not Obama criticisms ?
Show RyanO two can play the same game, and remind him he could always do executive orders like Obama, but would expect Republicans to be working with the leader of their own party.
Tell the audience that depending on RyanO’s answer he may be back.
More Ryan BS Trump should endorse Paul Nehlen.
I have never seen a collection of snakes like the GOPe leadership.
It is an insult to leprechauns!! lol
I hope Ryan is Cantorized
and Caponized... wait he probably already is...
Barack Hussein Ryan strikes again
No offense taken, anything less would be too polite to this two-faced little weasel from Wisconsin. One of the most embarrassing ironies of all this in that in my business trips to at least some portions of Europe, I actually find some jurisdictions that have become even more respective of my gun rights there than a lot of places in the US (And this was before those crooked judges in California basically voted to repeal the 2nd Amendment). Not only in Switzerland, where citizens are required to own a gun and maintain it, but even in places like Germany and otherwise loony-left Scandinavia of all places, heck much of east-central Europe they have more respect for gun rights than many US states. Even without a Second Amendment to make it official.
Just goes to show that the Constitution really has become a dead letter to the globalist elites that now run the USA. These days, political correctness, multiculturalism, diversity, cheap labor and centralized control— this is the “new Constitution” that our establishment has chosen for us. Now it becomes obvious what prompted Thomas Jefferson make his “tree of liberty” observation, he was well aware of how a cozy, corrupt, traitorous elite would betray the basic rights of the people unless challenged by the people from time to time. That’s exactly the sort of elite we now have.
Yes, very much needed. Nehlen needs donations and volunteers pronto, he’s already getting a swell of support both inside and outside the district, and with opposition building to Ryan’s treachery this is the ideal moment for the conservative movement to rally behind his campaign.
