Mark Meadows unloads on Paul Ryan in heated floor exchange
MSN/CNN ^ | 6-20-2018 | Ashley Killough and Phil Mattingly

On the eve of two major immigration votes, weeks of hard-fought negotiations took a turn with a heated blowup on the House floor between two lead negotiators.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, a conservative Republican from North Carolina, erupted at House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin over their agreement involving two major immigration bills, saying several times, "I'm done," while pointing in an animated fashion at the top House Republican and raising his voice as their colleagues watched.

The explosion drew widespread attention from inside the chamber and out -- and surfaced once again the long-simmering tension between House Republican leadership and the conservative bloc of lawmakers that has, at times, wreaked havoc on Ryan and his leadership's teams best-laid plans on topics ranging from government spending and health care to the farm bill and -- repeatedly -- immigration

Paul Ryan’s bill is utter garbage...

That’s because Paul Ryan is utter garbage. If he has any fantasies about EVER becoming President... well, that’s just laughable.

Ryan is retiring to spend more time with his family.

The open border criminals who financed him.

On the positive side, Ryan’s mother won’t have to stand on the street corners any longer.

The Trump administration has launched a full-court press in support of both bills. President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have each appeared on Capitol Hill in the past two days to urge Republicans to back both bills

This almost sounds like Trump is channeling Obama's position on the Iran deal: get me a deal, any deal, I'll sign it. I just need a deal, whatever it says.

Ryan is a Bush League Republican hell bent on turning the USA into North Mexico.

McConnell could end that in a heartbeat by dismissing cloture. If the Goodlatte bill became law, the GOP would finally reverse the 1965 immigration law treason. If not, the GOP is doomed as a party.

It’s called ‘Congressional Kabuki Show Down’.
RINOS want a (bad) bill that appeals to ‘immigrants’ to be blocked by the Dems in the Senate. So the Dems won’t have that support in their base vote.
Conservatives are afraid the Dems will take it.

That's my take on Ryan too.

But first, Ryan and his GOPe buddies want to throw the 2018 election so the Dims take the House. And the Dims will impeach Trump taking Trump out of the 2020 election clearing the field for someone like Ryan.

I don't think this going to happen but I do think this is the GOPe gameplan.

***********************************************
The GOP is doomed IF IT PASSES EITHER of these ABOMINATIONS of AMNESTY bills. Much of the makeup of the current Congress (both Senate and House) consists of open-borders Globalists. There is an ongoing replacement of many of the Globalist members with MAGA Patriots. Let’s let the 2018 elections play out and not be stampeded by Chamber of Congress into doing something stupid that will do IMMENSE HARM TO AMERICA!

MAGA and hold the course!

Mark Meadows bump.

He has testosterone and guts.

Paul Ryan.

He only has a cheap Eddie Munster haircut. And a desire for open borders and mass invasion.

McConnell doesn’t have the votes to rescind cloture. Not even close.

Yup. He’s resigning / retiring whatever, just GTFO you clown. His Soros backers commanded him to do this stuff right out of the blue before he cashes in on the final checks..

Paul Ryan, the RINO, needs to do this country a favor and resign.
