    McCain-Assisting PAC Misleads Voters about Conservative Opponent Kelli Ward... The Arizona Grassroots Action PAC has been running a negative ad about Kelli Ward for weeks on radio stations and FaceBook. The ad claims she failed to support our military with the funding needed to pay the troops. It also claims she sponsored a bill to prevent law enforcement in Arizona from cooperating with the feds to prevent terrorism. Both claims are false.

    As House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary race has begun to heat up, Ryan has announced two local media appearances in his home state of Wisconsin over the course of the next two days. Ryan is being challenged by Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, whose campaign centers upon the idea that Ryan “betrayed” Wisconsin voters by pushing open borders immigration policies and the fast tracking of President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. In a Saturday media alert, Ryan’s office announced that “House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will appear on two Wisconsin radio stations in the coming days—WBEL’s The Daly Show on Sunday,...

    I think it is now safe to say that Paul Ryan is no longer a conservative Republican, nor is he pro-American for that matter. Keep in mind that Paul Ryan’s contributions come largely from outside of his own district. Currently some 80% plus of all of Ryan’s contributions to his re-election campaign come from OUTSIDE of his own 1st District of Wisconsin. Stunningly, around 65% of Ryan’s contributions come from WITHIN the beltway of Washington, D.C. Pondering this statistic, one has to ask themselves, “so who is it that is donating so heavily to Paul Ryan and then why are...

    House Democrats ended their 25-hour sit-in over gun control legislation on Thursday, a protest Speaker Paul D. Ryan labeled a high-profile stunt that undermined the basic institutions of government. Mr. Ryan said he was “not going to allow stunts like this to stop us from carrying out the people’s business.” He added, “This is about a publicity stunt and now a fund-raising scheme.” But on legislative business, it was Mr. Ryan who prevailed. He personally reclaimed control of the House, pounding his gavel and muscling through a major appropriations bill that included funding for combating the Zika virus, without debate.

    Sources now indicate Paul Ryan wants Hillary Clinton to be America’s next president, and is doing everything in his power to secure that very outcome. If that allows Hillary to nominate up to three more Supreme Court Justices and thus tilt the balance of power of the Court so it represents far-left, progressive views, so be it. The forty-six-year-old Paul Ryan doesn’t care because he has already been promised, and wishes to make certain, that he is the GOP’s 2020 nominee for president. And it’s not just the 2020 election cycle that is currently on the table. Powerful Republican insiders...

Considering the current track record of suing Obama over abuses of power, this is little more than a confession of impotence. And yet it’s deeply troubling that a top Republican is willing to go to such lengths to fight for Muslim migration or for that matter illegal immigration in general.

Trump’s platform is nearly invincible in the general election if he stresses it enough, polling shows. Trump’s plan will also have a transformational effect on how people view his party. But he still needs to make the accounting work to ensure that his Third Way platform is feasible.

The delegates hope to change party rules next month to take away delegates who are pledged to the presumptive nominee but who may not actually support him. The attempt comes on the heels of a tough stretch for Trump, who has seen his favorability plummet and any lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton evaporate over his attacks on a Hispanic federal judge, comments this week about banning Muslims and other controversies. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/283912-several-gop-delegates-working-to-block-trumps-nomination

"We really have to look at profiling," Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation." ''It's not the worst thing to do." The presumptive Republican presidential nominee added that he "hate(s) the concept of profiling, but we have to use common sense." The statements are consistent with Trump's other, long-expressed views on...

    You think I’m overstating the case for persuasion. Perhaps you think Trump is doing well for a variety of reasons that include his accurate reading of the Republican base. But Trump’s accurate reading of the Republican base is part of the art of persuasion. None of what you see in Trump’s election success so far is luck or coincidence. It is technique. If you’re not trained to see it, the method is invisible. For example, I have already used several persuasion techniques in the paragraphs above.

"The last thing I would do is tell anybody to do something that's contrary to their conscience. Of course I wouldn't do that," he told NBC News' Chuck Todd in an upcoming episode of "Meet the Press" airing Sunday. "Look, believe me, Chuck. I get that this is a very strange situation. He's a very unique nominee," Ryan added. "But I feel as a responsibility institutionally as the Speaker of the House that I should not...

    It is pretty obvious, for personal and political reasons, the candidate the Republican House Speaker really wants to be elected President of the United States is liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton After Donald Trump clinched the GOP presidential nomination, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was not satisfied. He spent weeks withholding his official endorsement, while preaching the need for “unity.” After meeting with Trump a number of times, Ryan gave a very lukewarm endorsement of the businessman turned politician in his hometown newspaper. In an editorial for the Janesville Gazette, Ryan wrote that Trump would be able to work with...

    Rep. Paul Ryan, please go back to selling insurance, stocks, or whatever it was you did before becoming a politician. You're not a representative of the people you supposedly represent. At the very least, show your true colors and become a Democrat soRepublicans can avoid you like the plague. Doesn't surprise me, he's a Chamber of Commerce amnesty shill. Paul and all the other frauds in Congress are putting up more resistance to Trump than Obama. Ryan apparently doesn't know the law, US Code 1182 gives the president the authority to prevent any individual or group from entering the US. I...

    (CNN)One year ago the question hovering over Park City, Utah, was which presidential candidate could capture the hearts of Mitt Romney's friends. Less than a week later, Donald Trump said he was running for president and made them his enemy. And he beat them. Now, with Trump as the GOP nominee, those same Republican fundraisers, business titans and longtime friends of Romney are back to huddle far from Trump Tower. Attendees caution that Romney's annual summit -- The Experts and Enthusiasts, or E2, retreat -- is not an exclusive conclave for the #NeverTrump movement. Yet it is the closest thing...

    Specifically, the three questions Ryan’s office is refusing to answer are: 1.) Will Speaker Ryan immediately pull all funding for Muslim refugee resettlement in America? 2.) Does Speaker Ryan think America should allow any Muslims to continue immigrating into America after this terrorist attack? 3.) Since President Obama is still refusing to call this radical Islamic terrorism, Donald Trump is calling for the president to immediately resign from the White House. Does Speaker Ryan agree or should President Obama yet again be allowed to keep ignoring the threat and face no consequences? Ryan, of course, as Speaker has facilitated the...
