WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 17: U.S. Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) speaks during a weekly news conference May 17, 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Ryan held his weekly news conference to answer questions from members of the media. (
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) on Monday evening became the first sitting GOP member of the House of Representatives to publicly call for the removal of House Speaker Paul Ryan now, rather than on Ryans planned schedule post-election, during an interview on Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM.
During a discussion with host and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour about Ryans failures on immigration with a looming pro-amnesty discharge petition hanging in the balance, Gosar hammered the entire current leadership team.
Part of the problem is I think the whole leadership team is toxic, Gosar said. And thats part of the problem. How did we choose this? These are the same group of people that conveyed the jurisdiction of the omnibus. These are the same group of leaders that havent honored a promise.
Gosar pointed to the founding chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), as a solid replacement of Ryan when the time comes. Mansour had asked him about a call from Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaneya Freedom Caucus House member before he joined President Donald Trumps administrationfor Ryan to be removed now to force House Democrats to demonstrate in a floor Speakership vote their true allegiance to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Time to become a MONTHLY DONOR!
Any amount helps!
Get rid of him and everyone like him, and don’t send any more limp dick, slithering, little, Republican snakes like him to DC.
That’s what we need. An outsider who couldn’t care less what others think of him and will pay the price to MAGA (NOT MGOPGA) as Trump has.
I don’t know if that person is Nunes - I don’t know anything about Nunes. But from what I’ve seen of Jordan, I’m not impressed.
Ryan cannot be trusted.
I think the Freedom Caucus is smaller than people think. They have the numbers to affect some votes, but with only 30 or so people, they generally aren’t able to demand anything.
We need to be a bit understanding toward Jordan, Meadows, etc. They are in hostile territory a lot of the time.
I remember being glad when Ryan went on board the Romney ticket. Romney was so bad that a fiscal conservative was a good thing.
Evidently, Romney converted Ryan to establishmentarianism in the few short months Ryan had to associate with him.
Nope, sorry, I don’t understand. We’ve been “understanding” these politicians for way too long while America has been gradually taken over by the Totalitarian Left.
Enough. Time to fish or cut bait. We need fearless men in there who will not be cowed nor worried about their or GOP’s political future but CONSUMED with the future of America.
I’ve never heard much about Jim Jordan, but I’ll take your word for it. We need a conservatives in that key position for a change.
Foolishness born of stupidity
Speaker RINO is a lame duck anyway. He’s just hanging on until he can beat up enough votes for his pet idiot McCarthy (an even worse RINO.)
Leave now. Jordan for Speaker.
The Congressional switchboard is (202) 224-3121. Call and ask your GOP Rep to vote for Jordan.
I would be overjoyed with Louie Gohmert as Speaker.
Interviews of Jordan along with Rep. Gaetz, Gohmert, and DeSantis are all worth watching. It’s amazing to watch and I’m constantly saying - they have to be freepers.
I agree if we lose this we are Through for getting up to the date info from so many different places. Not sure why more do not see the need to donate .
Its way past time and probably necessary.
With apologies, I’m with Gosar on this one!
Will Paul Ryan start missing his family more, his dog, ...will he resign yet earlier???
Novembers a long way off, when you miss your dog.
(Or, you fear indictment, assuming Brennans threat is real.)
