Speaker Paul Ryan? Another conservative betrayal

Pro-amnesty Ryan supported by liberals   

Senate minority leader Harry Reid’s sloppy wet smooch to Paul Ryan shouldn’t be doing much good for Ryan’s aspirations to be anointed to succeed House Speaker John Boehner, whose limp tenure has been a colossal disappointment.

The liberal Nevada Democrat threw his support to Wisconsin Republican Ryan, saying he hopes Ryan runs and wins the job because he’s a “Paul Ryan fan.” According to Reid’s assessment,  Ryan “appears to me to be one of the people over there that would be reasonable.”

After being sold as a conservative and economic wizard as Mitt Romney’s 2012 Vice Presidential running mate, Ryan revealed himself to be a leading proponent of amnesty — a defining issue for a wide swath of grassroots GOP voters.

Pro-amnesty Democrat Harry Reid is not alone in supporting Ryan as House Speaker. Committed amnesty proponent and far left Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez, who worked with Ryan on amnesty legislation, has also thrown his support behind his candidacy.

Gutierrez has vouched for Paul Ryan with these troubling words, “I want you to know that in 2005 when Jeff Flake and I introduced a comprehensive immigration bill … and Kennedy and McCain was the first bipartisan, bicameral bill, Paul Ryan was an original co-sponsor of comprehensive immigration reform.”

Let that message sink in. No wonder status quo politicians are losing ground with frustrated voters.

On Tuesday Senate Democrats, led by Ryan enthusiast Harry Reid, blocked a vote on (S 2146), titled “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act.” It was tied to a bill known as “Kate’s Law” named for San Francisco resident Kate Steinle who was shot and killed while walking on the pier with her father. The bill imposed a mandatory five-year prison sentence on any illegal convicted of an aggravated felony who returns to the U.S. after being deported. Democrats blocked Kate’s Law because it was attached to a provision to defund sanctuary cities, which the left steadfastly supports.

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly addressed the issue with these words:

Foolishly, instead of simply voting straight up on Kate’s Law, the Senate put both pieces of legislation together. Everybody knew that would doom the vote, yet the Republicans did it anyway. That’s what makes Americans furious with the political system in Washington,” he said. “This is why Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead in the Republican polling. A recent CNN poll has Trump at 27%, Carson at 22%, and no one else in double figures. Both Trump and Carson support Kate’s Law and would not play political games with it. There comes a point where the American people are going to have to take back their government. When a 32-year-old woman can be gunned down by an illegal felon who had been deported five times and you cannot get a strict law punishing illegal alien felons you really don’t have a functioning government.”

The first time conservatives get sand kicked in their faces, shame on the kickers. The successive times it happens, shame on the conservatives. Haven’t we dealt with enough deceit on the topic of the illegal invasion from Arizona’s senators McCain and Flake to have made us wary of the arrogant candidacy of Paul Ryan? Arizona’s Representatives need to hear from us ASAP. Their contact information is here.

    McCain-Kennedy and their Illegal Immigration Gang
    John McCain admired Ted Kennedy and Kennedy recalled McCain’s corruption. So the ethics of Charlie Keating met the ethics of Chappaquiddick and John McCain helped Ted Kennedy, Carl Levin, Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer give Amnesty to illegals, open our borders and radically change American culture.
    In 1965 Kennedy pushed a bad Immigration law named Hart Seller and spent 40 years “fixing” a mistake. In 2005 McCain-Kennedy opened borders wider, expanded legal immigration, established more worker visa programs and offered Amnesty to many illegals – allowing them to stay in the US by paying a fine. In 2013 McCain’s Gang of eight liberals followed Kennedy by offering Amnesty to 18 million illegals, increasing legal immigration and adding 15 million more green cards (permanent visas). (1) (2) (3) (4) Notice how Kennedy/McCain “laws” always ignore the Law and encourage more illegal immigration.
    But McCain, ran for President in 2007 and (typically) lied, running against his own Immigration Bills. Along with McCain-Kennedy, McCain also co-sponsored “Dream Acts” (conditional residency for illegals) three times since 2001. Now Candidate McCain suddenly opposed Dreamers by saying, “The American people want the border secured first.” Part of his new platform said, “We oppose Amnesty.” (4)

    McCain lost and changed “beliefs” again, organizing the Gang of Eight for Immigration Amnesty.
    Kennedy, McCain and many Liberals live in cocoons of wealth and never see Illegals, except on the news when 9-11 and Boston bombings violate “visa status”? But we voters see millions of jobs lost and many fellow-Americans killed by new “legal” immigrants like Mohammed Atta and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

    Why does John McCain want to diminish the United States of America? The US was founded with a unique Constitution codifying liberty and freedom and based on our Judeo-Christian, Capitalist culture.
    McCain knows there are failed countries producing millions of immigrants with vastly different cultures. McCain knows diminishing the laws and ideals that bind our American Society will weaken our Society.
    If we cannot protect our borders or our laws, we will be destroyed. McCain must be fired.

  2. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Ryan has been very specific in declaring he wants the full support of his colleagues in the vote for Speaker, turning up his nose at garnering the necessary 218 votes. He wants a coronation, with every knee bent in homage. He even wants to change the rules to have everything on his terms.

    Where are the voices to tell Paul Ryan to go pound salt? Will AZ Reps. Franks, Salmon, Schweikert and Gosar fall for this arrogance? (McSally has perfected a good impression of a Dem, so I don’t count her)

    Fox News refers to his demands as “his way or the highway.”

  3. jakesez says:

    Just another example of the republican establishment doing things their way despite what the grassroots want. Here is another example of the establishment trying to keep control despite the conservatives. Jeb voices his doubts about Trump’s being able to handle the job as far as foreign policy is concerned. These comments will be picked up and used by the democrats in the general election if Trump wins the nomination. I firmly believe that Jeb and the establishment would rather have the democrats wins than have a conservative become president. That way the establishment can stay in control of the party and can keep the conservative in the back of the bus. Yes, I believe the establishment is that devious.

  4. Former GOP PC says:

    If Ryan becomes Speaker I will become a registered Independent the same day. I’ve had my fill of Republicrats, RINOs and other pretenders.

    My wife and I have already been removed as a longtime, active and hardworking elected precinct committeeman by McCain’s henchmen and replaced with McCainiacs who I’ve been told never show up at the Legislative District meetings. We fell as victims to intraparty warfare when McCain retaliated for the embarrassing censure he was given by state delegates at the Republican Statutory Meeting last year.

    I would urge all who suffer from McGOP-partum angst to cure your depressions with great big donations of $$upport to Dr. Kelli Ward in her U.S. Senate campaign.
    Ward for Senate
    1990 McCulloch Blvd, D-228
    Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403

    …or directly on her website. https://kelliward.com/

    (notice how McTraitor has bought all of the search engines for his attack dog lies?)

    Don’t just sit and watch now, and then whine later. Get involved.

    God bless America.

    • CD 8 PC says:

      Thanks for the important reminder, Leo. This is an extremely critical election. We have a bright contrast between a crude and foul mouthed elderly, liberal ego who has never been considered bright even by his hangers-on, and a highly intelligent and accomplished woman who also has legislative experience. Kelli Ward can run circles around McCain in every category that counts.

      And, yes, I have noticed the search engines and their sneak attacks to marginalize Dr. Kelli Ward. I find them sickening, but the fact that McCain’s operatives bought those sites speaks to his desperation. If, God forbid, he is reelected, and he lives to serve out the term, he will be nearly NINETY YEARS OLD. Arizonans deserve better than John McCain, and we have the opportunity to make that happen.

      I live in Trent Franks congressional district and am extremely disappointed in him for not endorsing Kelli Ward. He came out and courageously endorsed Wil Cardon over Jeff Flake and previously endorsed Calif. Congressman Duncan Hunter, Sr. over McCain during the presidential race. Both Hunter and Cardon were long shots and neither won, but those endorsements spoke well of Franks. Now he’s gone mute. The other supposed conservatives representing AZ’s congressional districts are also disappointingly silent. They are all go-along to get-along hypocrites.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    I have a nickname for Paul Ryan – Angela Merkel.

    Notice the new phrase “foreign citizen.”

    Paul Ryan: Job of U.S. Lawmaker Is to Put Yourself in Shoes of Foreign Citizens

    Just like Hillary Clinton – Ryan is “in.” He was getting over-the-top support from Hugh Hewitt yesterday.

    It looks like nothing is going to change in the GOPe. Can’t stand O’Reilly – but Kate’s Law was a good thing. He said that McConnell never returned his calls regarding passing the law. What a disgrace!

  7. Frankly Speaking says:

    The Senate Conservatives Fund has also shown no spine, making only three endorsements at this point and leaving Arizonans in the dust. It’s not like they don’t know what John McCain is all about.

    And the supposedly “fair and balanced” Fox News has hired McCain’s daughter as his mouthpiece for the days he’s unavailable for one of the supposedly conservative hosts to interview.

    SCF is a joke! They’ve have seen my last check. I’ll happily donate to Dr. Kelli Ward.

    • LD 23 PC says:

      It appears the “conservative” House Freedom Caucus has caved on this insulting candidate for Speaker. Who in DC qualifies as trustworthy?

      No wonder outsiders such as Trump and Carson have stronger appeal than the political class. Personally, I wish their numbers were transposed with Carson ahead of Trump, but I’ll happily support someone who is not part of the GOP establishment. Jeb is the ultimate insider and is sinking like a rock.

  8. Night Owl says:

    In this press release, conservative Phyllis Schlafly nails Paul Ryan brilliantly:

    She unequivocally states the raw facts, that Ryan “voted to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty… he voted to continue funding Planned Parenthood in spite of a federal investigation into their immoral practices… Ryan voted to give special rights to homosexuals in 2007 (ENDA), he voted to bail out Wall Street in 2008 (TARP), and upon becoming Chairman of the Budget Committee in 2011, he used his position of power to help punish conservatives for voting their conscience.”

    No wonder Paul Ryan is being rammed down Republican throats. He’s the epitome of the Washington insider we all despise.

  9. LEO IN TSN says:

    Here is a quick read on McEstablisment Paul Ryan and his long pro-AMNESTY, anti-American history.
    Lifelong history for AMNESTY, from Mexifornia to DC. 1996, guts reform bill that slashed immigration rates.

    This illustrates Ryan’s love affair with Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Communist-Chicago), who serves simultaneously as the Ambassador from Aztlan. The third corner of this unholy triangle is AZ’s own Sen. Jeffie “Blond Boy” McSnake. Gotta love that AZ McGOP???
