    At his weekly press briefing on Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan would not say if he supports congressional action to roll back or restrict the military's use of women in combat roles. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter has ordered the armed services to open all combat roles in the U.S. military to women. "There will be no exceptions," Carter said at a Dec. 3 press conference. ...

    Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy met privately with Rep. Jason Chaffetz Wednesday evening to reiterate that he cannot proceed with any investigation that involves Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the meeting. The impetus for the gathering was a POLITICO story where Chaffetz, the chairman, of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was quoted as saying that a pending probe into government record keeping practices would not be "specifically trying to target the secretary, but when she creates her own private email system, she's ensnarled herself.” Presented with the quote before publication, House...

    Today, Paul Ryan gave a fascinating speech at Heritage Action, a tea party-allied organization that has fashioned itself as the guardian of conservative purity. The speech called for unity. “To quote William Wallace in Braveheart,” he said, “we have to unite the clans.” But his speech was actually a repudiation of everything the tea party has done. Not only that, Ryan also took shots at the congressional Republican leadership, and even the current GOP presidential candidates. He didn’t call anyone out by name, but if you understand what’s happening now and the conflict that has roiled the Republican Party for...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan called on Republicans Wednesday to stop fighting angrily among themselves and not to be distracted by guns or other "hot-button" issues that President Barack Obama raises this election year. "We can't fall into the progressives' trap of acting like angry reactionaries," Ryan, R-Wis., said at a Heritage Action for America policy meeting. "The left would love nothing more than for a fragmented conservative movement to stand in a circular firing squad, so the progressives can win by default." ...

    President Obama's last year in office is shaping up as the Year of the Veto. After vetoing only seven bills over the first seven years of his presidency, Mr. Obama has vetoed two measures already in January. What's more, the White House has issued veto threats against all five pieces of legislation to come out of the House since Jan. 1, from a measure to cut "burdensome" government regulations to a bill that would give Congress greater oversight of the Iranian nuclear deal. A House vote on the latter is scheduled for the week of Feb. 1. The president, who...

    Despite those protestations, Ryan has spent his first couple months as Speaker aggressively courting some of the same Freedom Caucus conservatives who forced his predecessor, John Boehner, out of office last fall. The Wisconsin Republican ensured that conservative rebel Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas), ostracized for years by Boehner and his allies, won a subcommittee gavel and a coveted spot on the powerful Speaker-aligned panel that picks committee chairmen. He's invited Freedom members to weekly dinners he hosts in the Capitol. And Ryan has made Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a frequent thorn in Boehner's side, a key member of...

    A little over three months ago, National Review endorsed Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for Speaker of the House. In doing so, National Review helped place a man with a two-decade history of pushing open borders immigration policies in charge of the Republican Party’s entire legislative agenda. Ten weeks after that endorsement helped Paul Ryan secure the Speakership, Ryan proceeded to swiftly pass an omnibus spending bill that funded and expanded President Obama’s immigration agenda.

    ...there’s no basis for the common claim Obama won through a superb, unprecedented, supremely effective get-out-the-vote effort by the Democrats. Even downcast Republicans have hailed the opposition’s turnout operation as magnificent, but they fail to note that it resulted in far fewer voters showing up for President Obama. - The president drew 7.6 million fewer votes than he did in the hope-and-change election of 2008. - Exit polls showed that Obama got a slightly smaller percentage of the black vote than last time and that turnout was sharply down, delivering at least 1.5 million fewer African-American ballots for the Democrats....

    The speed of the news cycle and the media obsession with the presidential horseraces have crowded out a crucial development in the war on ISIS and related Islamic jihadist groups. House Speaker Paul Ryan has been sounding out colleagues for a new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). The current AUMF, which was written in 2001 and targeted groups connected to 9/11, has not been renewed. Believe it or not. Bravo for Paul Ryan's statesmanship. But a new AUMF must be accompanied by a clear U.S. declaration of war against ISIS. We will never destroy them without a full-blown...

This arrangement was reported today by Alana Goodman of the Washington Free Beacon, based on information provided by NLPC.

Senate Democrats apparently thought that those terms were too radical and haveblocked the common sense measure.While the SAFE Act seemed to scream bipartisanship,it did not gain enough votes during a procedural vote Wednesday.

    MADISON, Wis. - Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold spent part of his first interview of the election year defending President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran - a deal most Americans are leery about, to say the least. The Democrat, who is running against U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson to reclaim the seat he lost in the 2010 Republican revolution, said it's only right to talk about the "great things the president has done." "He has accomplished some foreign policy goals we have had for a very long time," Feingold told Sherwin Hughes, host of "The Forum," Friday on Milwaukee's 860 AM,...

    Last month, House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% successfully pushed through Congress his $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that funds visas for nearly 300,000 temporary and permanent Muslim migrants over the next 12 months. The omnibus bill also funded sanctuary cities, illegal alien tax credits, and changed federal law to allow for a massive increase in low-skilled H-2B workers- an immigration expansion opposed by more than nine in ten GOP voters. Yet at the first gathering of all House Republicans since the omnibus's passage, Politico reports that GOP lawmakers gave Ryan a standing ovation at the close of this...

Ryan, R-Wis., briefed reporters alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., at the GOP annual retreat, where lawmakers plotted their 2016 legislative agenda.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% already issued a statement that could easily be a contender for the most remarkable statement of 2016. In a Monday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Paul Ryan declared without a trace of humor that “People who know my record know that I’m for border enforcement, border control, not for amnesty.” But a review of Paul Ryan’s record demonstrates a two-decade history of pushing amnesty and mass immigration. In fact, Ryan has developed perhaps the most open borders record in Congress– for members of either...

    House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan may become the GOP establishment's 2016 candidate who can snatch the nomination or the leadership of the GOP away from pro-American populist Donald Trump, according to D.C. media chatter. But the move - if it happens - may be too late. Any fight between the increasingly popular Trump and the decreasingly popular Ryan would mark a last-ditch effort by the GOP's establishment-business-wing to deny any political power to its conservative voters, likely splitting the party just before the elections that will decide which party gets to control the White House and the U.S. Senate.

Conservatives expected a little something in return. Nothing big, they just wanted them to keep their promises to stop (or at least stall) some of President Obama's highly unpopular policies, not continue or increase them. No...

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....
  • Politico, The Hill, Hide Speaker Ryan’s 2016 Report Card From Pelosi: ‘They Gave (trunc)

    Beltway-insider publications Politico and The Hill are hiding House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan's 2016’s disastrous report card, even days after the Dec. 18 passage of his $1.1-plus trillion 2016 spending-and-tax plan. Ryan and his top aides “really gave away the store,” Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared Dec. 18. Her report-card phrase — “they really gave away the store” — doesn’t appear in Politico or TheHill, even by Dec. 22. Instead, Politico suggested that Ryan came out roughly even. “The four leaders — Ryan, Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Harry...

    House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) told radio host Bill Bennett that he hates Omnibus bills, but he passed a $1 trillion omnibus last week anyway. “I hate omnibus bills and I don’t like doing these last-second bills,” Ryan said. He added that he blames Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) who filibustered, “all but one appropriations bill” and also his caucus who, “seized up in the middle of the summer, unable to pass any appropriations bills because of some poison pill amendments
  • Speaker Ryan Defends His H-2B Pink-Slip Plan For Up To 200,000 Blue-Collar Voters

    House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is still downplaying his controversial new H-2B legislation, which will pink-slip up to 200,000 more blue-collar Americans during the 2016 election year. “There’s one provision that I think has been so misconstrued… which is the H-2B visa program,” he told radio-host Hugh Hewitt Dec. 21.

    Evangelist Franklin Graham has announced he is abandoning the Republican Party in disgust over the move by the GOP-led Congress last week to pass a budget that Graham said was "wasteful" and provided funding for Planned Parenthood, which he compared to the Nazis. Graham has previously said he has no faith in any political party, but his apparent renunciation of his Republican affiliation is an indication of anger on the right and the strong interest many disaffected evangelicals have shown in populist outsiders such as Donald Trump. Graham himself has expressed admiration for Trump, the surprise front-runner in the Republican...

    Sen. Mitch McConnell gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks Hello, I'm Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. I'm proud to represent Kentucky in the United States Senate. I'm also honored to have served this past year as leader of the Senate's new Republican majority. When you voted for this new majority last November, the Senate was a mess. Some thought the Senate could never be cured of its dysfunction and its gridlock. But the new majority you elected didn't agree. We believed the Senate could be restored to a place of high purpose again, and we've made great strides over the...

    They did it again. But like a battered wife, we keep going back because every four years they bring us flowers, beg our forgiveness, and swear they’ll never hit us again. The GOP establishment in Congress is our abuser. We can't hide the black eyes any more. The whole neighborhood knows. The Democrats are gloating. Obama thanked Rep. Paul Ryan (Traitor-WI) effusively – and why shouldn't he? Rep. Nancy Pelosi couldn’t have given him more. And where was the famed House Freedom Caucus – those stalwart conservatives who spearheaded Boehner's ouster? They were shrugging and handing us a bag of...

This tweet that I have here that I have discovered, that details what Obama said to Paul Ryan after the budget deal was done confirms what I actually think is going on here. Obama called Ryan and said, "Thanks for making government work." Now, let me briefly go through all of the excuses that we are given for why this happened. A, well, we were up against a...

    Why I won't support the latest last-minute $1.1 trillion spending bill. By SEN. TED CRUZ December 17, 2015 It's Christmastime in Washington, D.C., and that can mean only one thing: Congress is once again playing Santa Claus. The names at the top of its list are the Washington Cartel: The big businesses and lobbyists who get in bed with career politicians to do nothing but grow government. And left off the list: the American taxpayer. Thanks to last year's landslide elections, Republicans now control more seats in Congress, more governorships and more state legislative seats across the country than at...

    Paul Ryan is acting like every Democrat's wet dream. The massive budget he is shoving down America's throat is a wish list full of everything the Democrats could possibly want. o He's giving $1.6 billion to resettle illegal aliens rather than deport them. o He is fully funding Obama's illegal amnesty. o He is fully funding Obamacare. o He is fully funding Planned Parenthood and their baby cutting tactics. o He is allowing Obama to bring in hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees. o He is fully funding the EPA's program to shut down coal-fired power plants. o He is...
