    House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke up forcefully in a Facebook post on Monday against the recent violence in Charlottesville and the death of Heather Heyer, the woman killed when a car plowed into a group of counter protestors. ďThere are no sides,Ē Ryan wrote in an implicit critique of President Donald Trump, who was rebuked by Democrats and Republicans last week for blaming ďboth sidesĒ for the violence between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville. ďThere is no other argument,Ē Ryan said in the post, which made no mention of Trump. ďWe will not tolerate this hateful ideology in our...

    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 Ďscourgeí. 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...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan will answer audience questions in a CNN town hall live from his home district of Racine, Wisconsin, minutes after President Donald Trump explains his Afghanistan strategy. The town hall Monday night -- moderated by CNN's Jake Tapper -- is a chance for a wider swath of constituents in the district to participate and ask their congressman questions about the future of the Republican party, health care, tax reform and the state of race relations in the country in the wake of tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    If Donald Trump won't lead, I will. That's the message House Speaker Paul Ryan appears to be sending with a new statement -- released via his Facebook page Monday -- on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and President Trump's remarkable "both sides" comments in its wake. Headlined "Let There Be No Confusion," Ryan writes on Facebook: "I still firmly believe this hate exists only on the fringes. But so long as it exists, we need to talk about it. We need to call it what it is. And so long as it is weaponized for fear and terror, we need...

    Remember when we used to have such high hopes for Paul Ryan? Back in 2012, we cheered Mitt Romney for picking him as his running mate. Yay! Paul Ryan was bringing some much-needed conservative bona fides to the ticket, all is well. Fast forward five years, and many of us look on in bemusement as the once golden boy becomes more and more of the problem. Take today, for instance. The now Speaker of the House is preparing for a CNN town hall in Racine, Wisconsin, the focus of which will undoubtedly turn to the events last weekend in Charlottesville...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan advised Republicans to run away from candidate Donald Trump before the election in order to save themselves and hold a future-President Hillary Clinton accountable, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed in an exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller New Foundation. ďAre you crazy? We havenít held anyone accountable.

Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Twitter, ďMr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.Ē Added Sen.

    Hall of Fame hurler Nolan Ryan left a lasting impression on the state of Texas and on Major League Baseball with an illustrious 27-year career. His 5,714 strikeouts, 324 wins and seven no-hitters cemented his legacy as one of the greats. But it was 24 years ago Friday that the Ryan Express immortalized himself -- and it didnít have much to do with his pitching that day. On August 4, 1993, the 46-year-old Ryan drilled Chicago White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura in the elbow with a fastball. Ventura then made a decision he undoubtedly regrets to this day. He...
  • Vanity - NO RECESS Congress THIS YEAR...PERIOD. VOTE YAY or NAY.

    Simple: Both Republican, Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell & Republican, House Speaker, Paul Ryan should cancel any Congressional recesses for the rest of this year, immediately. These lazy, good for nothing, non-productive, low life Senators & House members, both Democrats & Republicans are on recess far too much, living the life of rich, elite, scum & vermin...period. Bottom line...there was plenty and ample time to pass Obamacare Repeal & Replacement, Massive Tax Reform & Infrastructure Renewal, since January 3, 2017. Nothing has happened. Please vote "YAY or NAY" on this critical issue. And.....McConnell and Ryan must go.

    Well..Priebus is gone, and now we will see if the House and Senate Republicans immediately fire both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. You can blame McCain, Murkowsky & Collins for the Obamcare Repeal Failure, and, yes they are all turncoats & traitors to the American People and Republican caucus, but the real culprits are Ryan & McConnell. When a Democrat leader of either the House & Senate issues an edict on how will Senators vote on issue, every Democrat falls into line. Why? That is why they have leaders. Both McConnell and Ryan are not leaders, rather, they are weak...

    Draining The Swamp 2.0 After viewing this latest debacle with health care and now probably looking at a tax debate that will likely cut corporate taxes while not doing anything for the middle class, we on the Right significantly need to start to understand the difference between strategy and tactics. The future of our country requires it. And that will mean we have to look within ourselves as conservatives. Sometimes we think so purely about our beliefs that we confuse strategy and tactics. A simple definition of the difference between the two would be that strategy is how we view...

    Steve Bannon reportedly called House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) ďa limp-dick mother****** who was born in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation,Ē referring to the think tank whose fiscal conservative policies the representative espouses. The detail is one of many bizarre nuggets in Devilís Bargain, a new book on White House chief strategist Bannonís role in President Donald Trumpís political rise, by Bloomberg Businessweek reporter Joshua Green, who has extensively covered the former Breitbart chairman. Green wrote that Bannonís comment on Ryan came during the spring of 2016, when it became increasingly possible that Trump would become the GOP...

    Short & Sweet.....Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan must either, resign their leadership posts or, be voted out by the GOP Caucus. These anti-Trump, low life, do nothing, incompetents, should lose their jobs "TODAY"!!! We sent them to Washington to support our POTUS (Trump). They have done no such thing!!! When Congress convened on January 3, 2017 Both McConnell & Ryan should have had healthcare legislation 100% ready to be voted on, repealing Obamacare. They had nothing, because they thought life would be fine with Hillary Clinton as POTUS!!! You know what they are, these two buffoons, traitors to the POTUS,...

    Without fanfare, Paul Ryan & Mitch McConnell must be immediately removed as leaders of the House and Senate. After eight years of assuring the American voters they would move immediately, and repeal "Obamacare", they have done no such thing!!! They let their members float around on congress recesses, instead of hard lining them to action without giving the any time off!!! They have no functional plan after all the time they have had to prepare for the abolishment of Obamacare....SAD!!! They do not support POTUS, Trump and are more akin to love the Democrat scum/vermin Establishment!! Republicans...broom them right now...

    A progressive, mustachioed Bernie Sanders supporter has shot to fame after announcing a challenge to Republican house speaker Paul Ryan. Democrat Randy Bryce, who goes by @IronStache on Twitter, is an ironworker, union organiser and veteran who launched his bid for Wisconsinís first congressional district on Monday. Since then, his evocative campaign advert, which shows a denim- and boot-clad Bryce discussing healthcare with his mother and engaging in various forms of metalwork, has been watched more than 330,000 times, and the 52-year-old has attracted a level of internet acclaim rarely seen among political candidates. ďI knew that we would have...

    This is an Excerpt. Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday she has extreme reservations about the U.S. Senate's healthcare overhaul and does not think it will be able to pass this week. The proposal released Thursday calls for a slower phase-out of the Medicaid expansion than a bill adopted earlier by the House.... Rand Paul, who has rejected the plan along with fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Ron Johnson, said fundamental problems remained that would leave taxpayers subsidizing health insurance companies. So it is possible that Mr. McConnell views the potential failure of a...
