Ryan blew it. He had a golden opportunity in 2017 and instead of serving the President and the American people he instead chose to oppose the President, and serve the Chamber of Commerce. Not a Republican. He also was a false prophet for deficit reduction and increased spending when he could have shrunk the deficit.

Paul Ryan the person that Joe Biden took behind the gym to slap him around in a VP debate that Paul Ryan? Paul Ryan who visited President Trump once and said, "we had a good conversation" then stabbed his party in the back for favors with the Chamber of Commerce, that Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan who handed the gavel to the Vodka Queen Pelosi then left town in shame when he could have helped the party and the President in the first term. I don't need to hear from Eddie Munster Boy Paul Ryan the backstabbing traitor.

When you did everything in your power to help the GOP lose the House, why on earth do you seem to want to help us take it back? Are you so bored out in the wilderness of retirement that you want to get back into politics? Isn't the ruination of a network keeping you occupied enough? When I see articles like this, I have to wonder what exactly is going on behind the scenes with these guys. Something has to be going on, because I cannot imagine he is doing this for the good of the nation.

The two top officials overseeing Milwaukee's host committee for the 2020 Democratic National Convention were sidelined Monday amid allegations of a toxic work culture. In a letter to staff obtained by the Journal Sentinel, the board said it had retained an attorney to investigate "concerns about the work environment" for the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee. During the investigation, Liz Gilbert, president of the host committee, will not be in the office and "will not have direct contact with staff," the letter says. Adam Alonso, the chief of staff for the group, has been placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the probe.

A 7-month old’s death and two fatal shootings the day after Christmas pushed the number of people killed in Baltimore this year to 342 — the second-highest total on record. Baltimore already surpassed this week the yearly record for killings per capita, due to the city’s rapid population decline. The city’s highest number of homicides was 1993, when 353 people were killed and the city had more than 100,000 additional residents. This year’s violence also surpasses 2018, which saw 305 homicides. In both 2015 and 2017, 342 people were killed.

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said President Donald Trump lied about her and former FBI agent Peter Strzok during his rally Tuesday night in Hershey, Pennsylvania, where he once again mocked and derided the pair for disparaging remarks they made about him in text messages. At the rally, Trump claimed, without evidence, that Page had taken out a restraining order against Strzok. "That's what I heard. I don't know," Trump said. "This is a lie," Page said in a tweet responding to a clip of Trump's comments.

The Democrat-led House Intelligence Committee late Tuesday voted to adopt and issue its scathing report on the findings from the panel's impeachment inquiry, accusing President Trump of misusing his office to seek foreign help in the 2020 presidential race. The 13-9 party-line vote on the 300-page report was a necessary step before the document could be transferred to the House Judiciary Committee... However, a senior member of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's leadership team told Fox News in the evening that it seems unlikely the House can vote on impeachment before Christmas, saying it's "too complex" a process.

Hollywood writer-singer-dancer Dick Van Dyke formally backed Sen.

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.
