  • Paul Ryan Could Be Ousted In 4 Weeks, Lame Duck Would Be In Chaos

    I may have been way too optimistic a week ago when I posted that it was “hard to come up with a realistic scenario that ends with Paul Ryan (R-WI) as speaker of the House of Representatives in the next Congress.” Never mind the next Congress: It now looks like Ryan could be deposed or forced to resign this Congress in the lame duck session that begins a week after Election Day. In other words, Ryan may no longer be speaker about four weeks from now. I say this after hearing from several highly reliable sources that the House Freedom...

    Rumblings of a leadership shake-up are getting louder Paul Ryans position is about to become the next target of conservatives. CNN had this report yesterday: Rep. Mark Meadows said Thursday the effort to remove Speaker Paul Ryan is picking up some steam because many GOP lawmakers and a stream of callers to the North Carolinians congressional offices are incensed the Wisconsin Republican hasnt embraced fully Donald Trumps candidacy for president. Meadows, one of the 30-plus members of the ultra-conservative and powerful House Freedom Caucus, said there will be real discussions after November 8 on who our leadership will be...

    Justin wrote about the hostile reception to Speaker Of The House Paul Ryan from Trump supporters at a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Chants of Paul Ryan sucks were shouted, but is this an isolated incident? That is, is this just a representation of Trump supporters from the local area? Nonot really. The latest polling shows that support for Ryan has collapsed, sinking 28 pointsin a week. The YouGov poll had some interesting points concerning Ryan, Trump, and the brewing tensions that seem bound to erupt in civil war once this election is over.

    Donald Trump made headlines this week when he questioned whether Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan wanted him to prevail over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Maybe not, Trump told Good Morning America on Tuesday. Because maybe he wants to run in four years or maybe he doesnt know how to win. I mean, who can really know? Trump said. The view that Ryan doesnt know how to win, however, neglects the reality that both Ryan and Clinton share a progressive, globalist worldview, which is at odds with Trumps America first approach. Indeed, both Clinton and Ryan have said that they see...

    As we rush towards the finish line in the 2016 presidential horse race, theres little doubt the polls have been unkind to Donald Trump of late. As of Sunday the Real Clear Politics average showed Hillary Clinton with a five and half point lead. Despite the size and permanence of Clintons surpluses across the various polls, one survey has consistently bucked the trend throughout the entire race. The LA Times/USC poll currently puts Trump ahead by one point Trump Wikileaks coveragebut has stubbornly maintained that the Republican nominee was leading by bigger margins over the course of months.

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan was in a hotel room in Cincinnati last May when he learned that Donald J. Trump a man he barely knew, with no institutional ties to his party and a mouth that had already clacked his nerves had secured the Republican nomination for president. Mr. Trump had recently lost the Wisconsin primary, which Mr. Ryan and other Republicans in the state thought would presage the reality television stars demise. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas had made strides, and Mr. Ryan thought the campaign would snake into the summer. But he badly miscalculated. The ensuing...

    One of the many things that has been exposed by the Trump campaign is that America does not have a two-party political system. It has a 1.3 party system. A good example of this is how Paul Ryan probably had one of his cronies leak that lewd tape to embarrass the party nominee. Whether or not he orchestrated it is immaterial, as he clearly had foreknowledge and was prepared to pile on as soon as it was released. In fact, it looked like he was coordinating a revolt against the nominee until it became clear it was going to backfire....

    It was October 1998, and Hillary Clintons midterm campaign swing for Democratic candidates brought the first lady on a Saturday afternoon to a middle-school gymnasium in Janesville, Wis. A 28-year-old conservative upstart from the town was running for Congress and Clinton, rallying 1,200 people with a rip-roaring denunciation of Republicans, was trying to stop him. Clintons efforts failed, of course. Paul D. Ryan went on to win, and he has held his House seat in Wisconsins industrial southeastern corner for nearly two decades as he has risen to become the highest-ranking Republican in the country.

    Paul Ryan's job as speaker "may be under threat" from a pro-Donald Trump rebellion within the House of Representatives, CNN reported Wednesday. At issue for the top Republican in the country is a Monday conference call with House membership during which Ryan said he would no longer defend Trump or campaign for him, instead focusing on congressional races to ensure a GOP majority. Ryan's "position to abandon the GOP nominee has angered other Republicans who have expressed their concerns with Ryan's position on a private conversation call earlier this week," CNN's Manu Raju reported. "Why are these few votes important?...

    Paul Ryan has had enough! He can no longer support Donald Trump and has broadcast his conviction publicly. Truly, the locker room jesting of Donald Trump was reprehensible, so standing on his principles, Paul Ryan can no longer support Donald Trump in good conscience. This is the new selective righteousness of the GOP. Paul Ryan's principles and this new righteousness bear very little semblance to America's traditional righteousness, but a striking resemblance to Islamic Righteousness. For example, Paul Ryan is outraged by the course jesting of Donald Trump, yet he fully funds the Planned Parenthood abortion mill / baby part...

Trump previewed that message earlier Tuesday on Twitter, railing against Ryan as a "very weak and ineffective leader."

In practical terms, the party will be working to mobilize voters who support GOP House and Senate candidates regardless of their position on the presidential race. That means the RNC will push Floridians who support both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to vote. Before today, the RNC wouldnt have sought to turn out Clinton voters, leaving split-ticket voters for Senate campaigns to target. (Snip) On top...
