Paul Ryan: ‘NATO Is Indispensable’
Breitbart Video, by Pam Key

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/11/2018 6:26:06 PM

Wednesday at a press conference, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) described the NATO alliance as “indispensable.” When asked about President Donald Trump calling NATO allies “delinquent” in paying for defense, Ryan said, “I subscribe to the view that we should not be criticizing our president while he’s overseas. But let me say a couple of things NATO is indispensable. It is as important today as it ever has been. We are reflecting that in a resolution we are bringing to the floor today.” He added, “With respect to Nord Stream 2, I saw the president mentioned that. We’ve

This kind of insulting baby-talk that we ALWAYS get from GOPe types like Paul Ryan.


NATO, like just about every other post-WW2 institution upon which the victor countries rely on for peace and stability are FAILING and FALLING APART.

What purpose is served by Paul Ryan making this baby-talk except to signal his anti-Trump virtues to all and sundry.

Pathetic, as per usual with the GOP´s Boneless Wonders

Trump is like your grandmother compared to your mom. Grandma has already been around the block, she knows the real you, and she will not accept your bad behavior like your mom will. No excuses will be accepted. Just do what needs to be done. Sometimes the truth hurts. It doesn´t mean you are no longer loved or needed or no longer family. It means do the right thing. Don´t blame your brother or try to pawn it off on your sister. Grow up and step up. If you want to be respected earn it. Time for America to stop kissing butt and closing her eyes to reality. Trump might be a bit uncouth but where did "couth" get us, no place.

I´m fine with that. However, lets work on this division of money, Paul. Let the rest of NATO pay their fair share and stop expecting us to pay almost all of it.

Remember those advisements against entangling alliances? We should have listened. We never should have been involved in World War 1, and NATO is of no benefit to us. Let the latter-day Hanseatic League go stew in their own juices and leave us alone.

The emphasis is in the wrong place. All they are talking about is fiscal support. A lack of fiscal support and their whining about it masks their lack of manpower support which indicates they are willing to defend their freedom to the last American. Unacceptable. Both the Euros and the Russkies have such miserable birth rates that their military capacity will be irrelevant in 30 to 40 years.

Nah, not so much. If they were to actually build up their forces to something reasonable, they could be valuable allies.

As they are now, they are useless. Germany can bring 10 fighters and 20 tanks to a war right now. Near enough to useless as to be a rounding error.

No, the US is indispensable. NATO, for the most part, with a few exceptions, is made up of wannabe military organizations with Air Forces that have planes that don´t fly and Navies that have boats that don´t float, and soldiers that can´t fight.

Has no one noticed that these two memes:

Trump is bad for colluding with Russia
Trump is bad for trying to stop flow of gas pipeline money into Russia

do not quite work together?

He is placing his malevolent idiot critics in a box of their own making, and is so many steps ahead in the game that we can´t keep count anymore.

Ryan is one of the biggest disappointments in Congress. Right behind John McCain.

What he´s essentially saying is that America should be ready to defend these pantywaist Euros anytime whether they deserve it or not. As stupid as they have been in letting the islamists take over their countries I would be perfectly happy letting them pay for their mistakes with their own resources.

The new picture taken by Matt Porteous was released on social media at 10am today, nearly 12 hours after Kensington Palace put out another four shots by Matt Holyoak from the day last night.

Melania Trump stuck with her yellow-themed clothing for her European excursion as she joined her husband in Helskini Monday. The first lady, 48, looked radiant in a $3,700 sunshine-yellow Gucci jacket dress that was complete with a butterfly buckle and bright high heels. She stood side-by-side with President Donald Trump, 72, and Russian Vladimir Putin as her husband declared there would be ´great opportunities´ between the two nations.

President Vladimir Putin rolled into his Helsinki summit with President Trump with a new ride that can compare to the Secret Service-operated ´Beast.´ As he arrived late for a meeting that observers already are calling a win for the Russian strongman, Putin made use of the new car for the first time since being inaugurated after winning 77 per cent of the vote. It was one of several ways the two leaders were on equal footing in Helsinki. The car, a Kortezh limousine, is a sleek black ride that conveys the power and prestige of an oligarch – or someone

Former U.S. Army Special Forces member Jim Hanson said that the criticism President Trump is facing for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is hypocritical to what the Obama administration faced in 2012. Hanson, during an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” specifically called out former President Barack Obama´s hot mic incident with then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and the lax media reaction to it. Obama told Medvedev that after the 2012 election, he´d “have more flexibility.” The former U.S. president and Medvedev were talking about missile defense, Hanson added, saying that the world´s security was

President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow in Helsinki, Finland, but the commander-in-chief predicts that ‘no matter how well [he does]’ at the summit, that America’s mainstream media will still criticize him. President asserted that he could be "given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russia" but then would return to "criticism that it wasn’t good enough – that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!"

President Trump said early Monday that former President Barack Obama ignored the threat Russia posed to the U.S. election because he thought Hillary Clinton would win, and that Democrats only started caring about Russia after Trump won. "President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the FBI about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn’t happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it," Trump tweeted Monday from Finland, just before he was set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz
