Speaker Paul Ryan Interview With
Fox News Sean Hannity – Feb 16th
(Video) – “Two Undefined Budgets”…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/17/2017 10:55:04 AM

Fox News host Sean Hannity had a sit down interview with Speaker Paul Ryan earlier, and the discussion content therein contains some critical information. (Snip) The setting: Firstly, no-one who has deep understanding of political constructs trusts Paul Ryan. PERIOD. This interview doesn’t change that valid and central truism one iota. There are Trillions of dollars at stake. Paul Ryan is setting up the groundwork in his preparation to orchestrate the financial legislative priorities of Tom Donohue, Wall Street and the U.S. CoC. If you don’t grasp that basic foundation, you’ll be entirely lost for the remainder of the year. That said, if we

This requires a read as it describes how Ryan plans to deal with the budget and the basis for doubting his veracity.

Why does Hannity give this worm the air time? Result for me is always the same: I don´t watch.

the article is paranoid hogwash. Ryan has forgotten more about budgets than the author has ever known.
I´m with Ryan.

The article is a waste of time.

First, there has not been an actual budget constructed by appropriations in 10 years.
We´ve been living on the 2017-18 fiscal budget from GWB, and a bunch of CR´s, one of which had the 2009 "stimulus" added that has not been removed since.

Which is why the Senate Dems, first, and Obama later, always fought any actual budget process be done.

The 6 month bridge was likely conceived by Dems who thought they´d have Hillary proposing all the new taxes, so think about that when you´re considering this point.

2017-18 fiscal budget will be the first using the traditional appropriations process to construct a budget and set priorities.

It´s also why you´ll hear hews and cries from Democrats about "cuts" since they will be operating on the assumption of baseline budget using the 2009 "stimulus" funds being added to the process.
If GOP takes away that "stimulus" portion during the bridge it will make the next fiscal budget easier.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer who fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott will not face any internal disciplinary action from the department. The news followed a lengthy investigation into the September 20, 2016 shooting. Scott´s shooting death lead to several days of protesting and marches in the City of Charlotte. Talking with the family´s attorney Charles Monnett, they don´t agree with this ruling. "Mrs. Scott is extremely disappointed by the decision. She feels strongly that some sort of disciplinary action was appopriate," said Monnett. Scott´s lawyer refers back to CMPD´s policy which states an officer isn´t allowed to use deadly force against a suspect unless there´s

Deep-pocketed conservative groups that helped fuel the downfall of the House GOP’s Obamacare alternative are now quietly signaling they won’t oppose the White House’s renewed push to pass the bill. Some of the most influential — and usually loudest — groups have privately told conservatives they want to see a deal go through, according to several people familiar with the conversations. (Snip) The shift marks a sea change for President Donald Trump and Republican leaders, who had to contend with the same outside groups calling the earlier bill “Obamacare lite” — a label that made it all but impossible for the most

The new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, reveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling “within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.” The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.” From Shattered: On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost

A new report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Office of Inspector General (OIG) reveals startling failures during the Obama Administration that allowed 2.2 million deportable aliens to remain on the streets in a “supervised” status. Aliens with criminal convictions accounted for nearly 400,000 of that total. The report (attached below) issued by ICE Inspector General (IG) John Roth last week details several failures under the previous administration that built a tremendous backlog for deportation officers (DO). Those failures include imbalanced workloads for DOs, unachievable goals, a lack of clear policies and procedures, and insufficient training. ICE deportation officers work on

The Islamic State group is determined to move closer to Israel’s borders, Gaza-based Palestinian jihadist and IS supporter Abu Baker Almaqdesi told Breitbart Jerusalem in an interview. Addressing a recent attack against a monastery in Sinai in which an Egyptian police officer was killed, Almaqdesi said, “It’s clear that the goal of the brothers is to close in on all sides in the direction of occupied Palestine and fight the Jews with the intent of expelling them from Islamic lands.” Almaqdesi refers to the entire state of Israel as “occupied Palestine.” According to Almaqdesi, despite IS’s fronts in Syria, Iraq,

WASHINGTON — This year’s spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund are like one big therapy session for the global financial elites, and everyone is venting about the same issue: Donald Trump. After all the IMF is the ultimate "globalist" institution derided by Trump and his anti-foreign, trade-restricting supporters and advisers. Trump has already ditched the long-negotiated TransPacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal with 11 other nations in the region, is threatening to rip up other accords like the North-America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and has even hinted he may try to yank the United States out the 164-member World Trade

Peter Grier of Christian Science Monitor is surprised that Trump supporters still support President Trump.From Grier: President Trump’s rocky first months in office have not much bothered his voters. At least, not yet. Yes, there have been lots of stories from the Rust Belt about stirrings of discontent among the Trump faithful. But those are mostly anecdotal and so far data – meaning polls – don’t back that thesis up. For instance, in a big new Pew Research survey fully 92 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say Mr. Trump has done as well or better than they expected. Only

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney appears on Bloomberg News to discuss the seismic, epic, thundershock confrontational clash that is about to take place between the Trump administration and the DC UniParty. There are no adjectives capable of describing the scope and immeasurable scale of the battle that is about to transpire between the White House and the Democrat/Republican UniParty. MONEY is where every entity within the full-swamp goes nuclear against President Trump and the administration. Despite all prior discussions toward this end, it is doubtful that more than one-in-a-million people can fully grasp the dynamic at play.

President Trump visited the Treasury Department today so sign one executive order and two presidential memorandums. The executive order requires Treasury to identify and lessen burdens from tax regulations issued in 2016. The two memorandum focus on examining and possibly revisiting two areas of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law in an effort to remove the regulatory and compliance burdens on smaller banks. When Dodd-Frank was instituted it was sold to the electorate as a bill to stop banks from becoming too big to fail, there were 12 massive banks under that definition. The goal was to create more national banks. Since

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

The student government at Western Kentucky University on Tuesday voted in favor of giving free tuition to black students. The school’s Student Government Associationpassed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus. The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported. “We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

Asked Thursday by Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith if there are enough winnable districts for Democrats, Pelosi replied, “Yes, indeed.” She said there are more than 40 seats held by the GOP that are considered more favorable to Democrats than the suburban Atlanta district where Democrat Jon Ossoff came within 3 points of winning an all-party primary on Tuesday.

Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said.

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
