Ryan, Trillion Dollar Stab in Trump’s Supporters Back!

Ryan Risking Future of GOP

Never Turn Your Back on a RINO!

Speaker Ryan seems hell-bent on driving the Republican Party back to its comfortable position of being an opposition party! 

His trillion-dollar plus Continuing Resolution today literally and figuratively ignited Trump’s base that was instrumental in keeping the GOP majority in the House and giving the GOP the majority in the Senate in 2016. 

Trump and GOP congressional voters relied on Ryan being honorable and sticking to the campaign pledges that saved their bacon in 2016.  Instead, Ryan stabbed Trump and his supporters in the back by:

  • Not Defunding Planned Parenthood.
  • Not Providing  Any Funding for Trump’s Southern Boarder Wall.
  • Not Adding Language to Take Away Funding for Sanctuary Cities.
  • Not Providing Substantial Additions to Beef Up Our Military!
  • Not Delivering a “Readable” Bill!  Instead this PORKER BILL is over 1,600 Pages Long!  Ryan Is Only Allow Lawmakers 72 Hours to Read this Traitorous Piece of Crap!

 

Democrats Dumfounded that Ryan and the GOP Congress are So Spineless!

Why Win Elections?  The GOP will Surrender Anyway!

 

While Trump has to work with the GOP RINOs, he may as well admit that they will do everything to defeat him and his agenda.  Ryan and the donor class are showing Trump that “Theirs is bigger than His”!

Trump better mount the Bully Pulpit Image result for Trump's bully pulpitand call out Ryan and this travesty now or he can kiss off successfully Repealing and Replacing Obamacare, building the wall, rebuilding the military, or driving through his tax and budget plans.

US Senate Should Abolish the 60 Vote Cloture/Filibuster Rules

Senate Filibuster and Cloture Vote Rules = Tyranny of the Minority!

The Senate’s use of a filibuster or the cloture vote to stop a filibuster, IS NOT IN THE US CONSTITUTION!  It is simply a Senate “rule” that was created by the Senate itself.  

Most US Citizens believe that a majority vote in the House or Senate should be the standard for passing legislation. 

They believe that

THE RULE OF THE MAJORITY

in a democracy should be the guiding principle. 

NOT A RULE BY THE MINORITY!

Did you know that the word “filibuster” comes from a Dutch word meaning PIRATE?

Why should a minority of Senators be able to thwart the “WILL OF THE PEOPLE”?  When the people elect a majority of Senators from one political party or ideology, the people expect that the elected majority in the Senate should prevail over the minority.  IF you believe that the minority’s rights are greater than the majority’s rights then should the passing of any legislation by the Senate be approved by 100%, 99%, 90%, 75%, 66% of the senators?  In essence, the current Senate Rule 22 requiring 60 votes to close debate puts control of the Senate in the minority, not the elected majority on regular legislation.

Historical Perspective:

The Senate rule allowing for a filibuster was first adopted by the Senate in 1806 but first used later in 1837.   In 1917, the Senate adopted a rule, (Rule 22), that provided that a filibuster could be stopped by a vote of 2/3rds of the Senate.  The 2/3rds vote requirement remained until 1975. 

During this period, the Southern Democrat Senators used the high 2/3rds vote threshold to block the Civil Rights Act of 1964, including anti-lynching legislation,  until cloture was finally invoked after a 60 day filibuster. 

In 1975, the Senate modified its cloture rule allowing for a vote of 3/5ths (60 votes) to stop a filibuster.   In 2013 the Senate changed the cloture vote to a simple majority for non SCOTUS judicial appointments. Then, in 2017, the rules were changed for even SCOTUS appointments.

Voting in the Senate should be the same as in the House of Representatives where the simple majority vote carries the issue.

Hiding Behind Senate Rules:

The other obscenity that is created with the phony 60 vote majority to end debate and pass the legislation is when the party who controls lets say 52 votes puts a bill on the floor knowing full well that the minority will block cloture and force the bill to die without a vote.  Then those in the majority strut about saying well we tried by XYZ minority blocked us. 

In more concrete terms, Obamacare repeal votes took place countless times when the Republicans knew full well that the legislation would be blocked by the Senate or Obama.  House Speaker Paul Ryan also hides behind Senate Rules when he re-crafted the Obamacare Repeal and Replace blaming Senate Rules as the reason he had to water down and stage the replacement. 

Democrat Vs Republican:

Republicans wring their hands when us regular folks tell them to do away with the 60 vote cloture rule and vote up or down on everything based solely on a simple majority.  Leadership says that when Democrats are in power they will use this power against Republican and ram legislation through.  

Obama taught us that these insane legislative rules with their false majorities are inconsequential and should be predicated on a simple majority vote.  When Obama lost the majority in the House and Senate, he merely ignored the legislative and judicial branches and ruled by fiat.   If the Republicans did pass a bill, they knew Obama would veto it! 

So, it did not matter what the Republican majority was in the Senate or the House.  Both parties use these rules to hide behind.  The use of these faux votes to prove to their constituencies that they are fighting for them is ludicrous.  We are not THAT dumb!

McConnell:

Do Away with Senate Rule 22 Requiring 60 Votes to Close a Debate;

Man-up; and Vote and Be Accountable!

We The People are Not Fooled!

KKK Leader Rule Still Hamstrings American Voters Wishes

Image result for robert byrd kkk

Robert Byrd:  The Byrd Rule was named after former Klansman and US Senator Robert Byrd.  The Byrd Rule basically laid out the rules surrounding what could and could not be included in “budget reconciliation” and where specific inclusions could be subject to the 60 Vote cloture procedure in the Senate.  It was a further move to insure that a 40% minority in the Senate could thwart the will of the people and the majority of the people’s representatives…

The bottom line, any use of the need to have 60 out of 100 Senators vote to stop debate in the Senate is asinine in the modern era.  

A simple majority of Senators, 51, should be sufficient to represent the will of the people.   This 60 vote filibuster requirement is not a part of the Constitution but merely a Senate “Rule” that was created by the Senate and can be changed or eliminated by the Senate.  The irony of the practice of requiring a 60 vote for stopping the use of filibusters to kill legislation was used extensively by Southern Democrats to kill Civil Rights Legislation!

Paul Ryan Using, or Hiding Behind the 60 Vote Rule?: 

Ostensibly, the demise of the repeal of Obamacare and the replacement of Obamacare fell prey to the 60 vote idiocy of the US Senate rules, including the bill killing Byrd Rule.  Ostensibly, the way the repeal/replacement was structured by Paul Ryan was to circumvent the arcane Senate requiring 60 votes to overcome a fake filibuster by using the Budget Reconciliation Rules of the Senate and thus prohibiting a MINORITY of Congress, specifically the Senate, to kill the Obamacare replacement. 

Was Ryan trying to use the Senate Rules to really pass a viable replacement of Obamacare or was he hiding behind the Senate Rules to insure that the RINO goals of keeping big government in charge of health care?  Only the very few members of the Ryan leadership team really know the answer. 

The sad part is that the American People, who supported the Republican take back of the House and Senate and in November of 2016 the election of Donald Trump who ran on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, are the losers.  Once again we counted on our Government to do their job and follow the will of the people.  Instead, Ryan and his cronies cow-towed to the will of big insurance, big pharma, and other interest groups to thwart the American People.

What is the Real Lesson?:

The real lesson that the American People have learned in watching this exercise of insanity is that the 60 Vote Cloture rule to end debate and allow a vote on a bill, whether subject to the budget Byrd Rule or not, has to be changed. 

We realize that the 60 vote rule does not make the Senate a great deliberative body but rather a slave to minority rule.  Period!

Same goes for confirmation of Presidential judicial appointments.  a simple 51 vote majority must be implemented or key judicial appointments can be derailed by 40 of the 100 Senators. 

The other use of the 60 vote rule is to try to hide behind a procedure to make themselves look good when they know full well that their vote is a farce.   All of the votes to repeal Obamacare by Republicans have been done with full knowledge that the Senate did not have the votes to stop a filibuster or last year’s when the House and Senate Republicans knew that Obama would veto the repeal vote.  But how many times have you seen Ryan and other puff out their chest and say that they voted to repeal Obamacare but X, Y, or Z stopped it from happening.  GET A MIRROR.  THE HOUSE AND SENATE REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVE AND RINO, HAVE ALLOWED THIS FARCE TO CONTINUE SO THEY CAN HIDE BEHIND CIRCA MID 1800’S RULES WHEN CAMPAIGNING FOR OFFICE.

Somehow, we need to force McConnell to repeal the Senate Rules to allow for majority rule.  Ryan and all Republican elected officials need to stand behind this change or nothing will ever change.

Some will say that when the Democrats are in power, they will use this Senate Rule change against us.  Where have you been the last 8 years?  The Democrats do not care about Senate Rules or the Constitution. Period!  Obama would issue an executive order and merely bypass Congress or the Constitution.  Ryan and McConnell would throw up their hands and say they don’t have the votes to overcome the Democrats. 

Enough is enough.  Trump’s agenda is OUR last chance to save this country from Progressive Rule and from the Big Donor, Big money interests that control this nation.   Obama put this country at the mercy of our sworn enemies and into the hands of the global progressive movement seats of power.

We need to stand and stand firm, NOW!

TrumpCare Challenge-Governance With the “Art of the Deal”

Democrat Obamacare Vs Republican TrumpCare

Obamacare was NEVER “sunshined” to the American Voter, or even Congress, before it was passed.  Just ask then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said we will have to pass it to see what is in it!

The TrumpCare replacement, ala Paul Ryan, was just made public and all hell broke loose.  AS IT SHOULD!  The good news, it has not even undergone House hearings or opened yet for amendments let alone scheduled for a vote in the House.  The Senate has yet to propose its own bill or reviewed the House bill with its Republican caucus. 

So far, what you are witnessing is Congress going through a normal legislative process where this TrumpCare bill will be sliced, diced, amended, changed dramatically or even scrapped altogether before the process is finished. 

That is a good thing.  That is what we sent our representatives to Congress to do!

Keep in mind, there are two parts to the ultimate TrumpCare legislation.  One, Repeal Obamacare.  Two, Replace Obamacare.  According to many of the conservatives, the current bill does not go far enough to completely repeal the current ACA/Obamacare law.  Further, these same conservatives do not feel that the current replacement bill is not a free-market, conservative principled replacement.  You are hearing the term Obamacare-Lite!

Why did Trump praise this bill even though the bill did not contain all that he wanted and campaigned to deliver?

The House, Ryan TrumpCare bill is a Start!  Trump see this bill as the START of the Negotiations, not the FINAL PRODUCT!

Now the fun part begins.  The “sausage making” will be on full display as it should be.  For those who are less than 25 years old, you have never really seen a real legislative process!  For those of us who have attained senior status, we may have forgotten what a real legislative process looks like!

Be that as it may, the public display and posturing by the various factions works to our advantage.  Call your Senator, call your representative, tweet President Trump directly and let you voice be heard.   This bill, in its current form, will not be passed nor signed by President Trump.  It is only the beginning. 

Be assured that President Trump, VP Pence, and HHS Secretary Price will be working to make sure all sides come together.  They would also include the Democrats but it is doubtful if they will join in the debate.  They seem to be fixated on the Russians, period. 

Maybe if Putin weighs in on the TrumpCare process, the Democrats and their lackeys in the main stream media ears would perk up.  Don’t hold your breath!  Just imagine the editorial meeting in the NYT trying to figure out how to tie this to Russian Hacking and Trump collusion with Putin!

Trump and Brexit-Need to Get out of EU ASAP!

Image result for brexit

Brits Need to Exit Before Global Elitist

Sabotage Their Exit and Their Future

If you had not heard, The UK (England) voted to break away from the European Union (EU) and once again become an independent nation.  They had been a member of the EU since 1973.  Prior to this vote, England was the 2nd largest country in the EU in terms of GDP.  They were the only country in the EU who had not adopted the Euro as their currency and still remained on the British Pound. 

The UK needs to file their Article 50 request to withdraw from the EU immediately! 

The powerful Globalists, Obama, British Prime Minister Cameron, German Chancellor Merkel, French President Hollande, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney,  George Soros, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton, and a whole host of other elitist will do everything in their power to first stop the exit and if unsuccessful punish the people of Briton for voting to leave. 

Punishment will come in the form of economic “sanctions” on trade and currency transactions.  Obama has already threatened that the US would be working with the EU on trade and the UK would be on “the back of the bus” if they voted to leave.  The Global Elites are fearful that other EU nations will follow Britton and try to leave the EU.  It is critical for the Global Elites to continue to “infect” and overrun Europe (and the US) with immigrants to eventually weaken the West and level the world-wide economic playing field.  Of course, the Global Elites would be at the top running everything!

Why Brexit Won!

By breaking away from the EU, Briton will once again be in charge of their own destiny and not be subject to dictates by the European Union.  The winners will be British citizens!  Briton First!  Sound Familiar…? 

The British People had to Pay £27.4 Per Year for the Cost of EU Regulations!

Brits, and citizens of other EU countries, had long complained about dictates coming down from the EU headquarters in Brussels that impacted their everyday life and certainly increased their cost of government.  One such example was the fact that English (and all EU horses) horses had to obtain “PASSPORTS”!  Why?  Not because they took the fairy to the Continent or traveled to the US!  It was because other EU countries EAT HORSEMEAT (Especially France)!  The passport was required to track the immunizations that the horse received in case it showed up on Pierre’s dinner table.  Didn’t want old Pierre to ingest female hormones!  Peta anyone?

There were hundreds of other idiotic and restrictive dictates from Brussels but the open borders dictates were probably one of the most worrisome.  You have seen the chaos in mainland Europe being caused by Syrian refugees and other immigrants from Muslim countries.  The lack of vetting, health checks, immunizations, and their adherence to Sharia Law (50%) have made assimilation into the EU culture almost impossible. 

Immigrant ghettos have sprung up all over Europe and violent crime, especially rape and molestation of European women, is rampant.  For decades, Briton has had an open immigration policy from their prior colonies, the fear that radical elements from terror prone countries was high to say the least.  Keep in mind, that once an immigrant comes into the EU, they can travel to any of the 28 EU countries without a visa or any vetting or health validation.  In fact, they can also come into the US unchecked using an EU passport.  If Osama bin Laden had immigrated into Sweden, he would have been able to take the EuroRail anywhere within the EU, unchecked.

World Domination by Global Elite at Stake

Image result for Earth Domination

Make no mistake, the Global Elite are real close to meeting their objective and dominating world markets and manipulating countries into economic and social submission.  Their goal is truly a one world government with them in charge.  The Trump, Sanders and Brexit movements towards nationalism are the first real threat to the Global Elitist march toward real world domination. 

The success of Brexit and the Election of Donald Trump are all that stand in the way of a total dominance by the Global Elitist by 2020.  We won’t only lose the Supreme Court if Hillary is elected!  We will lose our sovereignty!

We The People in the United States but follow the Brits and vote against the Global Elite and vote for Donald Trump!

Paul Ryan Is Just a Neocon Leftist, Period! Kate’s Law-CVE Program-Terrorism-Refugees

Ryan Continues to Veer Left and Ups His Opposition to Trump!

 

Ryan Trump

Ryan Punts On:

Kate’s Law

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’s Law:

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!

OCRM-VTrump

 

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!

The “R” Word Indicts the Speaker, Not the Person Being Defamed!

Paul Ryan’s Labeling of Trump’s Comments About Judge Curiel as Being Racist Merely Highlights Ryan’s Lack of Intestinal Fortitude and Commitment to Principle!

Ryan Flip Flop

What is the Definition of “RACISM”

Merriam Webster Dictionary:  “poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race”

When your opponent uses the word “RACISM”, your opponent really means that they do not want to engage you in a meaningful dialogue regarding whatever subject you are discussing.  Same for Sexism and all other “ISMs” the Left, and Right, has sought to use to silence decent.   

Political discourse today does not exist.  As soon as someone on the Right calls out an obvious bias by someone on the left, especially a Minority, the Left chimes in by calling them a Racist.  This term is intended, and has been effective, in silencing the call out. 

Inherent with this tactic is the message that the Left and Minorities cannot be biased

Somehow, the Left and Minorities have escaped the “Bias Gene” or have evolved to a much higher level than those on the Right!

Along comes Donald J. (No PC) Trump. 

Trump doesn’t view the world as majority/minority, Black/White, Hispanic/Caucasian.  He sees People!  What he says may not conform to the Left’s established politically correct “idiom”.  He will call out injustices no matter who he feels is the abuser.  This included a judge who is overseeing the Trump University case.  (For a discussion of this controversy, click on this link; http://wp.me/pY51c-Yr).

Because the judge in this case was of Hispanic decent; and has supported the La Raza organizations who are violently opposed to building a southern border wall, opposed to clamping down on illegal immigration, and opposed to having illegal immigrants in the US to become legal residents, Trump felt that this judge may be prejudiced against Trump and Trump’s positions based solely on these migration topics.  All of the Left and Right PC crowds immediately condemned Trump as being a RACISTS, rather than admitting that anyone from any race or ethnic origin could be biased based on their own experiences and viewpoints.  I think this is called “HUMAN NATURE”.

Enter Speaker Ryan

One such outcry against Donald Trump was the Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan.  Ryan publicly stated that “Claiming a person can’t do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment”.  In short, he referred to Trump as a Racist.  Obviously Paul Ryan had forgotten that the Hispanic Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor actually stated that different people with different backgrounds would reach different conclusions, or ruling in court, based on their experiences/background.  She stated,  “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,”   No one called her a RACIST!

This comment was by Paul Ryan, the very person who will be presiding over the Republican Convention in Cleveland this summer, where this “racist”, will be officially crowned as the Republican Candidate for President.  Donald Trump is the presumed Republican candidate now and as such is the head of the Republican Party.  Ryan is not.  So my question to Speaker Ryan is,

“MR. SPEAKER, WHY DIDN’T YOU PICK UP A PHONE AND TALK TO TRUMP DIRECTLY RATHER THAN PICK UP A MICROPHONE AND BADMOUTH THE HEAD OF OUR POLITICAL PARTY”?

Then, within 24 hours, Paul Ryan came out and stated that members of Congress should stand behind Donald Trump!  Apparently the RNC got to Ryan and brought him back into reality! 

But, this will not change the fact that Ryan does not like nor agree with Donald Trump and his policies. 

Trump’s policies are antithetical to Neo-Conservatives who back big government, foreign intervention and nation building, building deficits to address national needs, globalist trade policies, open borders, and reforming (cut) Social Security and Medicare for seniors. 

Trump is diametrically opposed to these positions and in fact embraces more traditional values on all of these positions. 

This will not be the last time that Ryan betrays his disdain for Trump.  One can hope that either Ryan loses his House seat to his GOP opponent or the House votes in a new Speaker.  Trump will need advocates in the House and Senate and Ryan will serve as a roadblock to Trump.  Kind of ironic and telling that Ryan has not opposed any budget or policy put for by Obama!

Trump is Not a Racist, He is “Channeling” Justice Sonia Sotomayor!

Trump Questions the Ability of an Hispanic Judge With Ties to La Raza to be Impartial In Trump U Case!

Curiel Ryan Trump

Paul “RINO” Ryan Calls Trump a Racist!

The Left, and RINOs, Want You to Believe

that Leftist, Hispanic, Activist Judges Do Not Exist!

Here are Quotes From One Such Leftist, Hispanic, Judicial Activist Who Is On the SUPREME COURT!

Sonia Sotomayor in 2001 Defined

Hispanic Judicial Activism by Saying:

“our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.”

Sotomayor also has stated:

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,”  So, what about the law?  That is black and white and not subject to ethnic interpretation!

In 2005  Sotomayor stated that “court of appeals is where policy is made.” And added, “And I know, I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don’t make law.  I know. O.K. I know. I’m not promoting it. I’m not advocating it. I’m, you know.”  So what were you doing?

In 2001, Sotomayor made remarks in Berkeley which were published by the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal, and further asserted that judges’ identities will affect legal outcomes.  This is EXACTLY what Trump is alleging regarding Judge Curiel.

So, Judge Curiel’s National Origin (Identity) May Impact

His Judicial Decisions! 

Trump Is Merely Raising the Question Whether It Is.

So, Mr. Ryan and all of the other Republicans who hate Trump and are using the Trump University case to chastise Trump and even call for his defeat at the convention, do you still not understand the concept that someone like Judge Curiel;

  • Who is of Mexican Decent,

  • Who is a La Raza Supporter,

  • Who is a Clinton Supporter and Contributor,

  • Who is a member of San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association that is affiliated with the Hispanic National Bar Association

    • In 2015, the HNBA called for a BOYCOTT of all Trump Businesses.  Their press release read: The HNBA calls for a boycott of all of Trump business ventures, including golf courses, hotels, and restaurants. ” 

    • Hispanic National Bar Association has long supported positions and activities put forth by the National Council of La Raza organization.

  • Who sponsored an illegal alien through a process to receive a scholarship to a US law school, (so much for adherence to Federal Law),

  • Who has ruled against Trump time and time again in favor of the Plaintiff’s Attorneys who

    • Also have ties to La Raza,

    • Who supports and contributed to Hillary Clinton to the tune of $675,000+, While she was Secretary of State.

…Could In Fact Be Predjudiced Because of His Hispanic Heritage and Hispanic Political Activism And Using His Position to Advance Causes That Are Antithetical To Current Federal and State Laws such as Open Borders, Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, and Welfare and Other Benefits for Illegal Aliens?  And Stands Against Everything Trump Stands For!

That Judge Curiel May Be Unsuited to Preside Over a Trial Where Donald J. Trump is the Defendant due to the His Prejudice based on His Heritage, Experiences and Associations?

Ryan is Just Like His Mentor Romney.  No Guts to Throw His Hat in the Ring But Is a Weasel Who Stands on the Sidelines and Cast Aspersions on the Front Runner He Despises.

At least Have the Guts to Just Say You Do Not Want Trump To Be President!

No One Respects a Coward,

And You are the DEFINITION of a Coward!

We Live in an Imperfect World Where Injustices Live Within Imperfect Men and Women.  Whites, Hispanics, Blacks, Asians and All Ethnic Origins and Races Are All Comprised of Imperfect Men And Women Who May be Part of our Judiciary. 

Political Correctness Only Exacerbates One Injustice,

Born of Prejudice, with Another.

David Limbaugh Ignores Republican Congress Lack of Intestinal Fortitude

David Limbaugh posted an article:

“Can’s Support Trump Yet” 

In that article, you defend your position by saying: 

“If Clinton were to win, the Republican Party could vigorously and credibly oppose her, but if Trump were to win, it would be very awkward for it to criticize Trump if he were to govern as a liberal or do something outrageous.”

Seriously?  David, where have you been for the past seven and half years?  When did our Republican Congress oppose Obama and the Democrats on anything?  They would be more at ease opposing Trump than Clinton.  They agree with Clinton on unbalanced “free trade”, open borders, and a bloated government as the solution for everything that ails this country, that serves to increase their own power base. 

***********

Then, you go on to quote the Hamilton Rule:

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible.”

That may have been great in Hamilton’s time but it does not hold one drop of water in this race with this Congress.  Further, if our Republican congresses are the definition of “conservative”, then all of the self-proclaimed “conservatives” are absolved from any responsibility for Trump. 

***********

Further, you go on to say:

“I am extremely concerned that he would be our political enemy in a number of areas and also that he has a tendency toward authoritarianism, a tendency many of his supporters seem unlikely to oppose.”

I have been an entrepreneur all of my life and I can tell you that a businessman, versus career politicians, understand that you have to “bring the team” along with any decision you make.  Your team, in this case the Congress and the American People, would have to be engaged for Trump to be even marginally successful.   I have less trust in a Republican Congress enacting a “conservative” agenda than I do Trump. 
After being involved in elections since Barry Goldwater, and watching the “conservative” candidates put forth by the Republican Party, I have no idea what “conservatism” means to those claiming this title. 

Will Trump “build the wall”, probably; lower taxes, probably; limit government, probably; have a coherent foreign policy, as opposed to what we have had for 16 years?, probably; Transgender bathrooms, as a State issue, probably; and abortion, this will require a SCOTUS decision, so, probably.

Do I know that for sure?  NO,  What I do know for sure is that Clinton will continue the Left’s destruction of this Nation.  What I do know that under Bush, with both Houses of Congress, we increased spending and the national debt, increased the size and scope of government, failed to secure peaceful transitions in Iraq and Afghanistan, expanded Medicare, and on and on.  If that is the definition of conservatism, then I guess I don’t fit the mold.

***********

The final quote from your article that I will address is:

“At the very least, I believe that conservatives should withhold their support for Trump until they can extract meaningful concessions from him on major policy issues.”

Concessions, like what?  I cannot think of one meaningful act of this Congress to assert conservative values and stop Obama.  $2 Trillion + Omnibus Bill?  Did Congress use the US Constitution effectively?  Impeachment, off of the table.  Shutting down the Government, no stomach for that.  Withholding funding from the Executive branches, no stomach for that. 

The founders gave us two tools to reign in the executive, impeachment and the purse strings.  Republicans have “aborted” both of these tools.

Let me finish with another quote from Alexander Hamilton:

“Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike.”

Ryan Vs Trump-Career Politician Vs Businessman

Who Understands the Real World Better?

Trump Ryan borderRyan was the Primary Sponsor of Only 2 Pieces of Legislation in 17 Years!

One to Name a Post Office in His Home Town

Two, to put an Excise Tax on ARROWS

Trump built a $10 Billion International Real Estate Company

The DC, self-proclaimed conservative pundits hail Ryan as a principled conservative and rail against Trump as a non-conservative populist. 

They glow over Ryan’s budget prowess and his creds as a “policy wonk”, while they spew hatred for Trump’s uncouth dispatch of his 2016 rivals and scoff at his lack of intelligence in being able to articulate policy positions. 

The DC, Self-proclaimed Conservative Pundits are the Enablers that Allowed This Country to Sink Into Economic, Political and Moral Decline

They have Covered for our Feckless Republican Leadership and Excused the Progressive Agenda as an Unavoidable US Political Evolution

We The People Cannot Distinguish and Difference between Our Current Republican and Democrat Leadership

Ryan PelosiRyan and the Republican Insiders have stood by for the past 24 years and have allowed or helped the left to drive this country into near oblivion:

  • Created the depression of 2008 by setting up the prime loan perfect storm then nationalizing our banking system

  • Created an unthinkable level of national debt even when in total control of the Government

  • Created conditions that have driven our military unpreparedness to levels not seen since before WWII

  • Created a stagnated economy while spending over $4 Trillion per year 

  • Created an ineffective and systemic corruption of our educational system

  • Created a trade paradigm that has exported 40% + of our manufacturing jobs and industries, and allowed our healthcare system to be decimated and much, much more. 

  • Created a system of environmental, labor, other regulations that cripple and kill our own industries while putting our international competitors at a competitive advantage.

So, if Ryan and the Republican Insiders are “Pure Conservatives” with “Principled Positions”, what on earth are their positions?

  • Support for nationalized, centralized banking system?

  • Support for uncontrolled spending and debt accumulation?

  • Support for weakening our military so we are unable to defend our nation?

  • Support for driving our economy down, holding down our middle class incomes, driving more and more citizens into poverty and big government hand out programs?

  • Support for dumbing down our educational system while increasing our cost per student and enriching the Teacher’s Unions?

  • Support for promoting “unbalanced” “free trade” programs that serve to drive our industries overseas and drive our citizens into unemployment?

  • Support for Big Government regulations to drive industries out of the US and enhance the capabilities of our competitors.

I am not the problem, It is the Pigs in Government
I am not the problem, It is the Pigs in Government

It is obvious to We the People that Politicians are only focused on their own re-election and increasing the power of the federal government and thus their own personal power. 

It is time for us to go back to our Founding Father’s Principles, not Republican or Democrat, and have a President, and ultimately a Congress, made up of Business People and not professional politicians, like Ryan and others, who have never ran a business nor even had a job, other than being a lawyer, in the real world.  We need more people in government who have signed the front of paychecks rather than just the back of a government check!  We need a government who lives among We the People and understand what We the People are going through every day. 

Ryan and the Insider Professional Political class will never come up with solutions that really work.  They simply do not have the experience and they are motivated more to perpetuate their own kingdoms than take care of We the People.  Business men and women are confronted with issues and problems every day.  They have to act quickly and in a cost-effective manner or they perish. 

What is the Punishment for Inept or Corrupt Politicians? 

BIG FAT PENSIONS AND A GOLDEN PARACHUTE WITH LOBBYING ORGANIZATIONS AND DC POWER BROKERS.

 

Why Trump Does Not Need Ryan’s Endorsement

We the People, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents support Trump and his vision, and not those of the DC Establishment.  Votes Count, eventually.  We will get enough people in Congress who are from the real world, and care more about this country than themselves and who will follow Trump’s example.  The DC Establishment has decimated our Constitution and the enumeration of powers.  We need to get the power back to the States where it started and cut DC down to size. 

This is not the Hunger Games even though DC resembles “Panem” and Obama, President Snow and Congress His Puppets! 

Ryan does not control nor speak for We the People

Get over it!
