  • A Stooge Leaves Congress: Paul Ryan's Career In Perspective

    On Jan. 3 2019, current House Speaker Paul Ryan gets to retire at the ripe old age of 48, but don't worry, as an entrenched Washington D.C. politician, we won't be done with him at that point. He has many years of lobbying for six or seven figure salaries ahead of him until he is inevitably recycled by the GOP establishment to do what he does best: undermine and sabotage the 'America First' agenda of President Donald Trump. Ryan has done such a poor job that it has become impossible for even the paid sycophants of Conservative Inc. to whitewash...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan questioned California’s ballot-counting process after Democrats were able to flip several GOP-held seats.The state’s election system “defies logic to me,” he said during an interview with the Washington Post’s Paul Kane. “We had a lot of wins that night, and three weeks later we lost basically every contested California race. This election system they have, I can’t begin to understand what ballot harvesting is.”“We were only down 26 seats the night of the election and three weeks later, we lost basically every California race,” he continued. “This election system they have — I can’t begin to...

    The Week ^ | 12/3/2018 | Ryan Girdusky
    Trump supporters who voted by the millions in crucial swing states, including Ryan's own state of Wisconsin, wanted the Republican Congress to make good on Trump's campaign promises. They wanted to see better infrastructure, lower health-care prices, student loan reform, fair trade instead of free trade, merit-based immigration, and an end to the wars in the Middle East. But Ryan delivered on none of this. Instead he passed a health-care bill that lobbyists crafted and Trump was lukewarm on. He fought to preserve a tax loophole for Wall Street that Trump "tried more than two dozen times" to get rid...

    Congressional leaders unveiled a bill on Monday that would extend government funding for two weeks beyond Friday’s deadline. The short-term spending measure would provide cash for the federal government until Dec. 21, preventing a messy budget battle as Capitol Hill mourns the death of President George H.W. Bush.

    "...But Ryan delivered on none of this. Instead he passed a health-care bill that lobbyists crafted and Trump was lukewarm on. He fought to preserve a tax loophole for Wall Street that Trump "tried more than two dozen times" to get rid of. He also failed to pass any meaningful immigration reform. On the contrary, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Ryan refused to lobby for the Goodlatte immigration bill, which would have built a border wall, enacted E-Verify procedures, and offered DREAMERS a path to citizenship. It failed to pass the House after nearly 20 Ryan loyalists voted against...

    Conservative favorite Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told FOX and Friends on Tuesday that Congress has only five weeks to pass border wall funding. Jordan is right! Paul Ryan repeatedly pledged to fund the Trump border wall but was lying to Republican voters. Despite passing record spending bills Ryan refused to include funding for the wall.

    Sadly, Ryan did not focus on holding the House in this midterm election, so now the next Speaker will be liberal Democrat Nancy Pelosi Throughout our 20 years of Ringside Politics TV and radio programs, we have established an annual contest of awarding our “Turkey of the Year.” This Thanksgiving tradition was started to recognize those individuals who distinguished themselves in a particularly idiotic way. It seems appropriate since turkeys are commonly regarded as one of the dumbest animals on the planet. Every year, the competition is fierce for there are many deserving celebrities and politicians. Previous winners have included...

    Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova appears on WMAL radio for a discussion of the joint house committee issuing subpoenas for Loretta Lynch, James Comey and Sally Yates. diGenova brings up a good point, what happens if they just simply refuse to comply? Answer: Nothing. From diGenova’s perspective it’s chaff and countermeasures. In this interview a fired-up diGenova strongly lambasts Bob Goodlatte, Trey Gowdy, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy for enabling a highly political Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to cover-up the institutional corruption within the DOJ and FBI.

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., revealed the existence of a "fourth bucket" of information related to potential misconduct by the FBI that he wants declassified. On his way out as chairman, as Democrats will take control of the House next year, Nunes said his panel's investigation into the Justice Department and FBI is largely complete. Still, he said the public release of these "buckets" would help give his efforts a sense of "finality." Speaking with anchor Maria Bartiromo on her Fox News program "Sunday Morning Futures," Nunes said the first of three "buckets" were the Russia-related documents President...
  • Midterms: Paul Ryan’s Republicanism Tanks at the Ballot Box. Again

    The night before the midterm elections, House Speaker Paul Ryan touted “tax reform 2.0,” the economy, and the rebuilding of the United States military as the agenda accomplishments of the Republican-controlled Congress. “Frankly, our members feel pretty good because they have a really good message … I mean look at what we’ve just been able to achieve in Congress with the President in the last two years,” Ryan told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “A record economy, the military being rebuilt, people feeling better about things … wages growing faster than they have since before the recession.” The accomplishments of the...

    I listened to PDJT’s press conference on the radio yesterday. Absent all the visual theatrics I concentrated only on the verbal back and forths. I must say, the President is getting better – much better in my opinion - at handling the group of rabid hyenas that pursues him. While I’ve enjoyed all of his earlier pressers, he did have a tendency to get drawn offsides too easily by the militant hecklers posing as journalists. He’s grown much better at batting back their bleating. Case in point, Mr. Acosta’s boorish antics that resulted in the suspension of his White House...

    President Trump called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi late Tuesday to congratulate her on the Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives. “He acknowledged the Leader’s call for bipartisanship in her victory remarks,” Drew Hammill, her deputy chief of staff, wrote on Twitter. In her victory speech, the veteran California lawmaker talked up a “bipartisan” Congress where Democrats had a “responsibility to find our common ground when we can, stand our ground where we can.” “We’ll have a bipartisan marketplace of ideas that makes our democracy strong,” she said.

    Did nothing of value as Speaker. Didn't discourage at least half of those looking to retire into sticking around another two years where we could have maintained control. He lined up his K Street job and started throwing bombs towards Trump (which he also did a few days before the 2016 election). Trump worked and saved the Senate and made the difference in some key governor races. Tonight was not a Trump defeat. Part of it was history -- midterm election usually results in out of power party winning. But this was winnable. Ryan blew the House. /rant

    House Speaker Paul Ryan pleaded with President Trump in a phone call to tout the booming economy rather than continue attacking the migrant caravan in Mexico in the final days before Tuesday’s midterm elections, according to a report on Monday. The Wisconsin Republican reached out to Trump on Sunday and urged him to change his message but the president said his focus on immigration is firing up his supporters, Politico reported. “Trump has hijacked the election,” a senior House Republican aide told Politico about Trump’s attention on immigration. “This is not what we expected the final weeks of the election...

    SAYING GOOD-BYE TO THE PRETENDER PAUL RYAN... Take this little quiz and see how you view Congressman Ryan’s record when another perspective is considered. Yes, I refer to Paul Ryan, the running mate of Willard “Mitt” Romney; Paul, “I voted against my principles to preserve my principles.” Ryan, but this quiz is illustrative of how politicians and their work can be viewed differently, depending on your perspective and your willingness to see the truth when it slaps you in the face. In this case, let’s compare or contrast Paul Ryan to some other well-known politicians and see if we don’t...

    Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin ripped Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., for his response to President Trump’s statement that he plans to issue an executive order to end birthright citizenship. Ryan claimed the 14th Amendment creates the birthright citizenship and that therefore such an executive order would be unconstitutional. “There’s been no law passed that conveys birthright citizenship onto illegal aliens. There’s been no Supreme Court decision that definitively confers birthright citizenship onto illegal alien children. Nobody’s a hundred percent certain how this came to be. But everybody seems to be a hundred percent certain...
