Ryan Continues to Veer Left and Ups His Opposition to Trump!
Ryan Punts On:
Funding for Counter Violent Extremism (CVE)
Pausing Refugee and Some Immigration
Enhancing the Use of the Terror Watch List for Gun Purchases
Paul Ryan continues his “redefinition” of Republican priorities and his opposition to Donald Trump positions. Unfortunately, Ryan’s positions are a regurgitation of Obama’s and the Neocon positions rather than those of the Republican voters who overwhelming back Trump.
Ryan is making a concerted effort to publically criticize Trump and his positions and sabotage Trump’s election. Ryan is drawing a line in the sand with Trump prior to the GOP convention. Is this a power play to (1) Set the agenda for the GOP versus allowing Trump to do so; (2) force down Trump’s polls to allow the #NeverTrump/Neocon forces at the convention to challenge Trump on policy; (3) Challenge the GOP Convention rules committee to disallow Trump’s nomination.
Below are Some of Ryan’s Idiotic Positions and Statements
Kate Steinle was gunned down in cold blood by an convicted criminal illegal alien that should have been deported long ago. To add insult to injury, the gun that was used was stolen from one of our Federal agents!
On Fox’s Bill O’Reilly show, Ryan’s limp wristed excuse for NOT passing Kate’s Law was that “…what we have to figure out is how do we write Kate’s Law so that we’re not clogging up our jails so much for, say, DUI, but for the true violent criminals? Oh really! According to AAA: “The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports unlicensed drivers are five times more likely to kill, they will flee the scene over 50 percent of the time, five times more likely to drive drunk.” Illegal is Illegal, dead is dead, and wrong is wrong. Ryan needs to understand there are absolutes!
Ryan scapegoated that illegal aliens should not be here in the first place. But, Ryan has supported Open Border policies and benefits for illegals his entire 18 years in Congress. He also used the need to deal with “Sanctuary Cities” rather than deal with passing Kate’s Law! Ryan has NEVER written or backed any legislation to eliminate sanctuary cities and he controls the federal funding to States and Cities. In short, Ryan is a typical do nothing, keep, getting elected, never saw a lobbyist he did not like, RINO!
Funding for Counter Violent Extremism (CVE):
Rush Limbaugh today spent a great deal of time discussing the fact that CVE is really a way for Obama to focus federal law enforcement agencies away from considering any form of Islam as extreme! Catholics yes, Islamist no! Even worse, this codified Obama’s paranoia that non-Muslims will target and blame Muslims for attacks such as the one in Orlando! So, this program not only turns a blind eye to ISLAMIC TERRORISM, but forces resources to be diverted to looking for a non-existent problem! RYAN AND THE HOUSE LEADERSHIP ARE NOW CONSIDERING GIVING OBAMA AN ADDITIONAL $40,000,000 TO CONTINUE THIS MADNESS! One more red cent for this madness is nuts and Ryan should not continue funding this madness.
Pausing Refugee and Some Immigration:
Ryan couldn’t wait to find a microphone to badmouth Trump’s support for PAUSING the Syrian Refugee program and some immigration from countries where support for terrorism has been documented. Ryan stated, “I do not think a Muslim ban is in our country’s interest. I do not think it is reflective of our principles.” Our interest is protecting our citizens first and our principles include the defense of our homeland and protecting the citizens’ right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! Maybe Ryan should take Civics 101 again! Once again, Ryan supports the European Style Open Borders to Muslims approach and not only funded the Obama Syrian Refugee Program but increased its funding beyond what was requested.
Trump’s ban is Temporary so he can assemble our best and brightest, this excludes Ryan, to formulate a solid program of immigrant vetting, relocation criteria, post immigration tracking, and create domestic and international programs to illuminate and eliminate the creation of radical Islamists.
Enhancing the Use of the Terror Watch List for Gun Purchases:
Once again, Ryan almost broke a leg to get in front of the cameras and microphones (he is even faster than Sharpton or Jackson!) and condemn Trump’s raising the question whether we should look at using a terror watch list to restrict the purchase of guns and ammo by would be terrorists. Trump’s approach was to engage the NRA in a discussion, (I think that is something that Congress should also do), of how to keep weapons out of the hands of terrorists. One thought would be to use a tool like a “terrorist watch list”, not necessarily the ineffective one we now have, to alert authorities and halt the sale until the purchaser can be given a due process. Ryan tries to justify his condemnation of Trump as Trump backing away from his 2nd Amendment support even though his position is basically the same as that of the NRA! Once again, Ryan is taking an anti-Trump position when maybe he should shut up and listen!
Ryan is typically on the wrong side of issues that the GOP electorate is on. He is typically on the same side of issues as Obama, the Left, and the Neocons!
So, is Ryan just trying to assert Congressional muscle against Executive policy setting? Is Ryan trying to force down Trump’s polls so the #NeverTrump/Neocons can challenge Trump on policy at the GOP convention? Or, is Ryan setting the stage to challenge Trump’ nomination at the convention via the rules committee?
In either event, Ryan is sabotaging our chance of taking over the Presidency. In fact, he is putting the GOP in the position to lose control over the House or Senate as well. If the Ryan led GOP anti-Trump forces keep this up, the GOP electorate, and absolutely the independents, will either stay home or vote for Hillary.
Whatever you think of the Democrats and Hillary, they will never air their dirty laundry in public. And, heaven knows that Hillary is the most flawed and disliked Democrat nominee in history!
