  • BREAKING: Speaker Paul Ryan sets quitting date [Unconfirmed Twitter Rumor]

    Wire Sources is reporting Paul Ryan to step down from House Speakership Before Memorial Day. According to reports, during his announcement that he was not seeking another term, the news made his wife happy and a little tearful. President Donald Trump's reaction when he heard the news last month:
  • Nancy Pelosi says she'll run for speaker. Some Democrats are running the other way.

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi has settled a looming question heading into November's midterm elections: She will run for House speaker if Democrats win a majority this fall. "We will win. I will run for speaker," she told The Boston Globe. "I feel confident about it and my members do, too." Though it was long assumed that Pelosi would run for speaker again, the assurance is both a gift and a curse for the party heading into this year's critical midterm elections. It gives more potency to a message Republicans have long employed: Vote for the Democrat, get Pelosi as speaker.

    If you've been watching Jim in the assorted hearings over the past year, you know that he's a BULLDOG. Jim's a B+ at Gradegov and a solid 100% at Heritage Foundation. Jim Jordan NEEDS TO BE THE NEXT SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE! All indications are that he's the REAL DEAL! Per his Wikipedia page, Jim REALLY is a fighter (multiple wrestling championships) who doesn't flinch from a scrap! ADD YOUR NAME TO THE GROWING LIST OF SUPPORTERS.

    Nancy Pelosi is an embarrassment to Congress, and most members of Congress are an embarrassment to America. When Pelosi was speaker of the House, she famously stated that Congress needed to pass Obamacare to see what was in the bill.  She also pondered openly whether the Democrat leadership of the House of Representatives ought to "deem" the Senate version of the bill to have passed the House to avoid having members of the House voting on the bill. Pelosi six years ago opined that unemployment liberated Americans to become photographers or writers or musicians – unemployment was an opportunity for those lucky enough to lose...

    Rumors have been swirling for months on Capitol Hill that Speaker Paul Ryan will either resign his seat or not serve as speaker if he returns to Congress next year. This has set off something of a scramble among top Republicans to position themselves to replace him if the speaker exits the stage. Two top members of Paul Ryan's leadership team, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise, have begun angling for his job in the event the speaker calls it quits after the election. They're closely monitoring the moves of the other and quietly courting Republicans who...

    The race to replace departing Texas House Speaker Speaker Joe Straus (RSan Antonio) at the dais may soon have a new candidate in State Rep. Drew Darby (RSan Angelo). Darby was a fixture of Straus leadership team, helping head a coalition that combined Democrats and establishment Republicans to obstruct conservative reforms. During his 12 years in the Texas House, the lawmaker has repeatedly earned failing grades on the Fiscal Responsibility Index. Although new House Republican Caucus rules were passed so that Republican members could united around a candidate for speaker instead of allowing the Democrats to dictate their leader, Darby...

    The parliament speaker of Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan declared resignation on Tuesday, protesting the deterioration of political and economic situation in the region and the use of force against anti-government demonstrations. "I officially announce my resignation from the post of Parliament Speaker, and will continue my work in the parliament within the opposition group," Speaker Yousif Mohammed from the Gorran Movement said at a press conference in the city of Sulaimaniyah in northeastern Iraq. Mohammed accused the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) of using force to suppress the demonstrations that erupted in the Kurdish region amid widespread anger over unpaid...

    Americans are divided on what we want: the sovereign Republic bequeathed to us, along with liberty and our constitutional form of representative government, or an open-borders one-world socialist "utopia." Thanks to the radical left's long march through the institutions especially influential in our public schools and colleges many young people have eagerly embraced socialism or even communism. But there is one thing I believe we can all agree on: we don't want an oligarchy. Here's the rub: we don't know what an oligarchy looks like up close. Let me give you a few examples. Back in the summer...

    House Speaker Paul Ryans approval rating has sunk to a low of 29 percent, lower than President Trumps and lower than those of John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich at the same point during their first full terms as speaker. And Ryans disapproval rating is at 54 percent. However, heis more popular among his own constituents. A March survey found 49 percent of voters in Wisconsins first congressional district had a favorable view of Ryan, while 44 percent had an unfavorable view. Now the Republican who challenged Ryan for his congressional seat inlast years primary has a theory as...

    It’s also lower than Trump’s, notes WaPo’s Amber Phillips. Trump is at 39 percent in this poll, a dismal number for a president at any stage but especially during what’s supposed to be his “honeymoon period” with voters. And still, he’s fully 10 points better than Ryan.How many different contributing factors are there for Ryan’s garbage numbers? I can think of at least four.His approval rating isn’t wildly different from Boehner’s or Pelosi’s. His disapproval rating, though? Hoo boy. Contributing factor one: He was, of course, the quarterback for the GOP’s much-hated health-care bill, which was polling at a...

    The chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said there is no talk of replacing House Speaker Paul Ryan after the Republicans' proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare was killed because it failed to garner enough GOP support. On Saturday -- hours after Donald Trump tweeted to his followers, Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M. Jeanine Pirro opened her show with a call for House Speaker Paul Ryan to step down in the wake of the health care bill's failure. Along the same lines, the conservative website Breitbart raised the possibility that the head of the House...

    With control of House, Senate and the Presidency, and with so much that cries out to be done after eight years of Obama inaction and/or mismanagement, Republicans have a golden opportunity to advance their own electoral fortunes by doing well for their country. But all of this is endangered by the fact that their major congressional leader is a man without political instincts, skills, or judgment. Its unfair to say that he is a RINO, or to question his value to the party as the source of ideas that are sometimes very useful. But it is not unfair to say...

    President Trump pulled the healthcare bill today after it fell short of the votes needed to pass. Many believed that the highly unpopular healthcare bill dubbed Ryancare was just another big government solution. President Trump may be playing 4D chess with this because this may have been the perfect way to not only get the full repeal of Obamacare, but also a replacement of House Speaker, Paul Ryan.

Ryan was caught on an audio file from Octoberobtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks agosaying he is not going to defend Donald Trumpnot now, not in the future.

    And we have a suggestion for the haters I think this is probably going to go like every Paul Ryan post. Im going to urge you to kick back and take a powder on the hate, and youre going to ignore me and breathe fire in the comments section. Its good that we had this talk. But Im going to try anyway, for two simple reasons. One, like it or not (and I know a lot of you dont), he just got unanimously re-nominated by the Republican majority (which probably means re-elected) for another term as House Speaker:

    Paul Ryan spoke out against Republican nominee Donald Trump ALL YEAR. Ryan announced in October he was pulling his endorsement of Donald Trump. He held a separate press conference to tell reporters he would not campaign with Donald Trump. Paul Ryan cannot be trusted. He is loyal to the elites and not the people. Paul Ryan is pro-amnesty, big government, pro-TPP and anti-American worker. Donald Trump won an historic election on Tuesday winning 306 electoral votes. But Republican lawmakers do not respect their base. They are voting this coming week to reinstate Paul Ryan as speaker. But Republican Rep. Tim...
