How Paul Ryan lost the GOP
to Donald Trump

Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/15/2018 3:08:06 PM

The grassroots voters that fueled the extraordinary rise of House Speaker Paul Ryan spurned their erstwhile conservative hero for a new champion, President Trump, marking a generational shift in ownership and attitude of the Republican Party. A change in the philosophical predilections of the GOP has been blamed for this slow-rolling divorce, made official with Ryan’s announcement that he would step down as speaker and retire from Congress at year’s end after more than two decades in Washington. But irreconcilable ideological differences had little to do with it. The Republican base in the twilight of the Reagan era was hungering

FTA: Ryan has practiced an inclusive, civil brand of politics.

Ryan has practiced appeasement.

Ryan is part of the Uniparty, with about a 25-30% disagreement with the Dems. He´d support anything they want on open borders, for example.

That one issue, by itself, means I have trouble supporting him. Of course, all politics has to be tempered with "compared to what?", and certainly, Romney/Ryan would have been a bit better than Zero/Idiot Joe. But the differences are smaller than many think.

Ryan is leaving to pick up the cash. He has a bag wife who has been doing it, but now he will be able to crank up the collections.

I wrote off Ryan when he gave Obama MORE money than Obama had asked for in Obama´s last budget proposal. For the most part, Trump is doing the things the GOPe have always talked of doing, but never got around to doing.

There is an article at NRO/the Corner by one Dan McLaughlin dated April 11 entitled "Paul Ryan´s Lost Opportunities on Spending". I know, I know - it´s NRO and all that, but it is (IMO) a very thoughtful piece including trenchant criticism not only of Ryan but of his conservative critics.

Worth posting (by someone how knows how to do that) and well worth a read. Ryan had his shortcomings, but those who easily trash him don´t have the full story.

Its not so surprising that the House and the Senate leadership are unwavering appeasers. After 12 years of the Bush appeasers. And then 8 years of an America hating gay Muslim mulatto which the media worshiped. And still does.

Many of us here are old enough to remember the real unwavering leadership of Reagan which his vp, Bush detested. And sought to overturn everything he did. ´Read my lips ...´.

And of course 0bama and his ´team´ were ready ´to rule from day one´. As he destroyed jobs and reversed a growing economy and led America bowing and crawling on his knees in foreign affairs as much as he could... with the media cheering him on of course. Now, Trump has reversed all that and the media hate him.

Screw the media and the leftists (of both partys). Which of course includes the so called ´progressives´.

Ryan, a member of the DC Uniparty, Republican Branch, is a big time supporter of amnesty for illegal aliens and most of the outside of DC Republican base is against Ryan’s stance on amnesty. Reportedly Ryan is now attempting to ram through an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens before he leaves Congress. Any DC Republican who supports Ryan on that issue should be primaried out during the run-up to the November election.

Ryan committed the classic political sin, promised one thing and did another. Boot him out and hope for better next time.

There is only one worse sin and that was Obama´s tactic. Say something that nobody could understand but were dumb enough to vote for you anyway and then do what you want.

Two months before the 2016 presidential election, the Claremont Review of Books published (in its digital pages) an essay that began: “2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die.” The author, Publius Decius Mus, a pseudonym for Michael Anton, who recently served as director of communications for the National Security Council, noted that “you may die anyway” because there were no guarantees except one: “if you don’t try, death is certain.” He allowed that his metaphor might strike many readers as “histrionic.” It did; but it struck many more as galvanizing, especially when Rush Limbaugh devoted

As thousands flee Hawaii´s Big Island ahead of the imminent ´explosive´ eruption of the Kilauea volcano, some have been seen taking a less dramatic approach. A logic-defying photograph taken on Tuesday shows a group of golfers more concerned with finishing their round than the mountain spewing ash and sulphur dioxide 12,000 feet into the air behind them. The US Geographical Survey (USGS) says Kilauea has 20 open fissures now, with some of them continuously erupting and that lava bombs the size of microwaves were found a few hundred yards from the Halemaumau crater on Wednesday morning. ´This morning dense ballistic

The leader of the opposition research firm behind the infamous anti-Trump ´dirty dossier´ told Congress last year that the FBI collected intelligence from inside the president´s campaign before the 2016 election. The agency was at the time run by James Comey, the now decidedly anti-Trump former official who has unleashed scathing criticism of Trump in his memoir. Glenn Simpson´s testimony is among the disclosures in Wednesday´s Senate Judiciary Committee release of transcripts from its investigation into the unverified collection of dirt funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. In August 2017 Simpson told committee members and

Wherever there´s a public library, there are homeless people taking shelter, and this is true in Malibu. Perry Thomas, who said he´s a U.S. Army vet known as "The Real," was wheeling his belongings into the Civic Center library Tuesday morning. He told me he sleeps on Surfrider Beach. "It´s about as safe as any other place," he said. In a way it´s odd that destitute people would settle down in one of the most affluent areas in the country — a place where there is no affordable housing, no shelter and very few services.

Given historical trends on the number of seats lost by the president’s party in the first midterm, the number of GOP retirements this cycle, and redistricting in Pennsylvania ordered by the state’s supreme court and created by a university professor to favor Democrats, prospects for Democrats taking the House remain quite good. But not quite as good as they were the day before yesterday.

The Trump administration may take action to cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood as a result of pressure from congressional Republicans and anti-abortion lobbyists. Opponents of abortion have launched an all-out campaign urging the administration to bring back Reagan-era abortion restrictions on federal family planning dollars that would target Planned Parenthood. The regulations would ban organizations that receive family planning dollars under the Title X Family Planning Program, which funds organizations providing services like birth control to low-income women and men, from promoting abortion or referring patients for abortions. Former President Reagan first issued the regulations, which Democrats describe as

Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Los Angeles - The number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high last year and officials are particularly concerned by a spike in stillbirths due to congenital syphilis, state health authorities said Monday. More than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago, according to data released by the California Department of Public Health. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30, the report said. Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, while men account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases.

No man in America is more entitled to the nation’s admiration and gratitude for sacrifice than John McCain. He’s a hero in anybody’s book, with no asterisks. An exclamation point, but no asterisk. The criticism of a young White House aide was harsh for remarking, in a private working session where everything was off the record, that since the senator was “dying, anyway,” he should not be in the calculus for reckoning how the vote might go in the confirmation of Gina Haspel. The aide, one Kelly Sadler, has been roasted and toasted since by critics large and small, Republican and Democrat,
