    House Speaker Paul Ryan lampooned President Trump at a charity dinner Thursday night, mocking his Twitter habits, his former top advisor Steve Bannon and his Big Apple roots.

    Anyone who doesn't understand why so many people have been aroused and inspired by Steve Bannon's culture "war talk" should listen to the Paul Ryan interview on "Face the Nation" a few weeks back. It offered a perfect example of what frustrates them about the Republican leadership. Prompted by host John Dickerson on the issue of race relations, the House speaker advised President Donald Trump and other leaders to change their adversarial ways. He said: "I think what matters is that we have to show people that we are an inclusive society that ... we want everyone to succeed. And...

    Paul Nehlen, the America First conservative who is challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan in the 2018 primaries, was stonewalled and banned from a massive GOP event in his district over the weekend — and for the scrappy pro-Trump challenger, this means war. Nehlen, for those unfamiliar, was the insurgent candidate who in 2016 helped to stop the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal by getting chief cheerleader Ryan to go live on CNN and tell Manu Raju that the deal was poorly negotiated. Nehlen is challenging Paul Ryan for a second time, in an attempt to finally put a stop to...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only “one member” wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). The dinner, sources said, took place on the eve of the House’s passage of two relatively minor immigration bills at the end of June: Kate’s Law and sanctuary city reforms. The far wider reaching Davis-Oliver Act was tabled at the same time. “Ryan told a group of Republicans he met with … that only...

    Following the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise at the hands of a deranged liberal terrorist, Rep. Thomas Massie introduced a bill for national reciprocity. This bill would make it so concealed carry license would be treated like marriage licenses or drivers licenses; a permit in one state would be recognized in every other state.The bill, however, has stalled, and Massie points the finger for this squarely at Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. – Bearing Arms Second Amendment rights, long considered the Republicans purview, are being kicked down the road by Paul Ryan.

    So, President Trump did a snap-decision deal with San Fran Nan and Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer on the debt ceiling, the budget and a supplemental appropriation for FEMA on Wednesday, and Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are reportedly mad as hell about it. There is only one word for this, and that is… GOOD. Think about it: You are the duly-elected President of the United States, a President who was elected to accomplish a very clear, specific set of goals on which you campaigned more tirelessly than any recent presidential candidate for 18 long months. Included in those...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday told “Dreamers” to “rest easy” because his chamber will work with President Trump to come up with a plan to reform the immigration process a day after the administration began phasing out the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program. “We will not be advancing legislation that doesn’t have the support of President Trump because we are going to work with the president on how to do this legislation,” Ryan (R-Wis.) said during a news conference of Republican House leaders. “I think people should rest easy, and I think the president made the right call...

    After two years of lectures about “principles” and “the Rule of law” by the establishment-loving hacks furious that normal Americans rejected them and elected Donald Trump, their performance last week demonstrated that their high-minded dedication to conservatism is all a fraud. It’s not about “principles” or “the Rule of Law.” It’s only about holding on to power – theirs.            Let’s take the latest in a seemingly endless series of #fails from that smarmy dope Paul Ryan, King of the Fredocons. First, he rushed to help out the liberals with their ridiculous narrative about how Donald...

    It’s official. Senator Paul Ryan is insane. I received a letter in the mail from him today on the letterhead of the National Republican Congressional Committee. The letter is dated “Monday Morning” (?) and came in a large envelope bearing a 3˘ stamp and two 1˘ stamps (depicting strawberries and peaches) but no date on the postmark — in fact, no date of any kind, anywhere in the materials. The first page of Speaker Ryan’s letter contained a long code [000AG002392] and an urgent warning: “If for any reason the number on your State of the Nation Survey...” (which he...

    President Donald Trump won the November 8, 2016 election in an electoral landslide. President Trump captured several states that have not voted Republican in decades. Riding on his coattails the Republican Party also won back the House of Representatives and won a majority in the US Senate. In December 2016 Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about how he would help the new president push through his agenda. The new Republican president wanted to pass tax cuts, repeal Obamacare and build a border wall in his first 100 days. But no matter how hard President Trump and his team worked, the Republican...

    The thing people like about House Speaker Paul D. Ryan is that he is a serious guy who is capable of thinking big and has an ambitious agenda to salvage our ungovernable federal bureaucracy. He was never the smoothest communicator or slickest politician. Serious, smart and honest has always been his currency. So now the question is, Mr. Speaker, where is your big, bold agenda? This country is at a political crossroads that only comes around once or twice in a century. Congressional Republicans are totally blowing it. Right now the GOP comfortably controls both chambers of Congress. In the...

    Speaker Ryan took to his social media Monday to condemn the white supremacists in Charlottesville AGAIN, yet remained completely silent about the violence from Antifa towards Trump supporters and police officers. Paul Ryan sent out FOUR tweets condemning white supremacism. In one tweet he called white supremacy a ‘scourge’. He still has yet to condemn Islamic terrorism after a Muslim terrorist killed 13 in Barcelona including an American citizen. CRICKETS. Paul Ryan tweeted out his statement regarding the Charlottesville violence where a young woman was killed after a white supremacist plowed through a crowd of protesters with his vehicle. After...

Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has revealed that during the 2016 presidential campaign, House Speaker Paul Ryan told him and his fellow Republicans to give up on Donald Trump’s campaign and just focus their energy on keeping “President Hillary Clinton accountable.” According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White...

Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed in an exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller New Foundation. “Are you crazy? We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable [for using government power to harm President Obama’s political adversaries],” an astonished Gohmert said to the speaker on a call. Gohmert told TheDCNF he speaks so courageously because he wants the party to succeed...

    Paul Ryan and his fellow members of Congress are forging ahead in an attempt to rearrange the deck chairs of our tax system before we all sink under the code’s voluminous verbiage. Many House members -- particularly in the Republican Party -- have moved toward simplification. T.R, Reid has authored A Fine Mess, his take on our tax system and how it compares to other countries, which some people are using as a benchmark for how to tackle the current tax entanglement. Mr. Reid has produced a very readable analysis of taxes with very few errors considering he is a...

    A reporter on Fox News last night compared the leadership style of President Trump to that of the late NY Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, as if that’s a bad thing. I beg to differ. Yeah, Steinbrenner was a bitch to work for – he fired Billy Martin alone on 3 different occasions – but here’s the record: While he was running the Yankees, they won more games, more division championships, more league championships and more World Series titles than any other team in Major League Baseball during those 38 seasons. Steinbrenner’s record is so impressive that ESPN, in an article...

    Let’s talk about congressional Republicans. A year ago today, Republicans in congress were possibly the single most-detested part of the ruling class in Washington, DC. They had, as a group, made more false and failed promises to voters over the previous seven years than almost any such collective group of politicians in American history. They were headed at that point for a thrashing at the voting booths, with “experts” and polls indicating the GOP would lose its Senate majority and could possibly lose the House as well, if Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in a landslide in the presidential contest....
