Paul Ryan: Trump won’t win in 2020 if the race is about him

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/12/2019 10:28:05 AM

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan is offering President Trump unsolicited advice for 2020: Don’t make the race about yourself. “The person who defines that race is going to win the race. If this is about Donald Trump and his personality, he isn’t going to win it,” Ryan said Monday during a speech in Vero Beach, Fla. Ryan said there are some Democrats he believes can beat Trump in the 2020 presidential election, though he did not say who those Democrats are, according to the TCPalm. The Wisconsin Republican retired from Congress in 2018. He had a contentious relationship with Trump

It never was about Trump. It´s about the American people who have enough of dems/libs intent on killing the American Republic as founded . Ryan is too arrogant to know that.

As my father used to say, I only care about the opinions of those I respect. In Ryan´s case a few choice expletives come to mind that my dad would probably not appreciate.

Given how he and Romney threw the election in 2012 to Obama, and then Ryan proceeded to undercut the nation and then Trump as much as possible, I just do not think he should be talking about anything.

He helped to deliberately throw the House into democrat hands, and how is that working for you Ryan?

What is he doing in Vero Beach, FL giving speeches?

Ryan is probably right, though. Democrats will likely focus on Trump´s personality. They have nothing else to focus on.

Trump will focus on America. That´s what happened in the last election. Worked out well for us!

Paul Ryan is one of those establishment types that tell the rest of us to suck it up and vote for the likes of McCain and Romney, even if we find them lacking in commitment to Reagan conservatism. And most of us hold our nose and do so because the viable alternative is so much worse.

And yet the Paul Ryans of the GOP cannot hold their nose when a candidate does not fit their mold of conservatism. Reagan´s rule not to speak ill of other Republicans applies only when their establishment candidate is running.

I am really disappointed with Ryan. Sometimes it is best not to say anything if you have nothing nice to say. Ryan should listen to that motherly advice.

So many (nasty) responses, but only #3 gets it. The next election needs to be about the President’s accomplishments and goals for the American people. If we let it devolve into a fight over personalities, which I’m sure the Dem/Soc’s would love, then we’ll be surrendering our strongest weapon and will be dancing to their tune.

I´m going to stick my head out of my foxhole and suggest that Ryan is right. If the election is cast as a referendum on PDT´s personality he could very well lose. The suburban squishes who stupidly delivered the House to the Democrats would see to it.

But the president is not about to let that happen. He will forcefully define his opponent as the Marxocrat he or she is, and stay on the offensive from start to finish (I´m thinking 1988, Lee Atwater and the hapless Dukakis).

Of course the Dem nominee will fight back, and in the process fully expose his or her own extremism. Bottom line: landslide for Trump.

(That´s my hopeful thinking, anyway).

I once thought Ryan was a decent and capable guy. What a disappointment.

President Donald Trump´s White House is asking the public to report social media companies if they suspect ´political bias´ resulted in their account being suspended or banned by platforms such as Facebook or Twitter. Trump has repeatedly attacked Google, Facebook and Twitter for what he claims is bias in their treatment of conservatives - a theme he is likely to expound on during the 2020 election.Now the White House wants data on the tech giants´s actions along with information on the user reporting them - including the person´s citizenship status and contact information.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday misquoted a portion of President Donald Trump’s immigration speech and was quickly met with a fact-check by a Breitbart News reporter. Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

Every student taking the SAT will now be given an ´adversity score´ to level the playing field between people with different social and economic backgrounds, but critics say children of affluent parents could be penalized by the new system. The scoring system was established by the national College Board, the nonprofit which administers the test, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
