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

Comments:
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.

Even before Michael Anton (writing as Publius Decius Mus) published the most famous essay of the 2016 campaign season, “The Flight 93 Election,”—indeed, even before Donald Trump was considered a serious presidential contender—John Marini was formulating the arguments that would culminate in what remains the most powerful and the best affirmative case for Trump. Marini’s essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis” focused on the ways in which the modern administrative state has worked to subvert and circumvent the sovereignty of the American people by torturing the concept of consent of the governed and blurring all plausible lines between that consent

flurry of smartphone snapshots with a cardboard Donald Trump and blazing red “Make California Great Again” hats signaled that many of the GOP delegates at the California Republican Party convention this weekend have embraced the new president and his aggressive tactics to shift the nation to the right. But a fair number of Republicans at the event said they still harbored concerns about Trump’s divisive rhetoric, abrupt governing style and doubts about his allegiance to conservative ideals. Those voices were largely drowned out by praise from Trump loyalists and delegates, however, who said they have been impressed by the president’s policy

I watched President Trump at CPAC on Friday and thought he did a good job of explaining what he has been up to since we elected him. Then I read the press accounts of The Donald at the CPAC and I must have misunderstood. They described a speech I did not witness.

The next chair of the Democratic National Committee is about to be selected. Democrats will vote on the new head of the DNC at the 2017 Winter DNC Meeting, which is being held in Atlanta, Georgia. Voting is expected to begin on Saturday morning, with live coverage beginning at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time on The Democrats’ official YouTube channel. This vote takes place among the 447 members of the Democratic National Committee, and the person who receives a majority of votes will be elected chair. That sounds simple enough, but it’s made complicated by the fact that there are seven candidates in

Today in Atlanta 447 members of the Democrat National Committee will meet to vote on the next Chairperson for the DNC. The two top candidates are Representative Keith Ellison and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez. The vote will determine which path the Democrat party will choose in the next several election cycles:Will they choose the direction of Black Live Matter Islamic Socialists, the coalition of Keith Ellison; or the more traditional Limo-Liberal Moonbat Communists of Tom Perez. The latest insider discussions put the race very close. (Via Reuters) The stakes are high for a party still struggling to recover from the surprising Nov.

On Election Day, marijuana advocates and entrepreneurs were dealt two conflicting realities. On one hand, the industry appeared poised to continue its explosive growth, with eight additional states voting to legalize the drug for either recreational or medicinal use. The other lingering reality is that the presidency of Donald Trump could tighten the way the industry is regulated at a federal level. Marijuana is still a federally illegal substance.(Snip )there is a big difference between the medical use … that´s very different from the recreational use, which is something the Department of Justice will be further looking into."

Obviously everyone is seeing the Astroturf attendees to various Town Hall events promoted by a Very Fake News media apparatus. Everyone knows the ruse, because astroturf activism is a consistently deployed page from the Democrat’s Alinsky playbook. However, for those who might not have been as engaged in the grassroots Tea Party original activism – allow me to remind you of December 2009.The “corn-husker kickback“. The “Louisiana Purchase“. Bill Nelson’s “Gator-aid”. Do those terms ring a bell? They surfaced in late 2009 as then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was buying votes for the original Senate version of Obamacare. Leader

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.

A transgender advocate struggled to answer simple questions about the science of gender identity in a discussion about former President Obama’s transgender bathroom decree Thursday on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Let’s move from the politics to the science,” Carlson said to Zac Petkanas, Democratic National Committee senior advisor, launching into a series of questions about the implications of allowing people to determine their sex. “There’s no biological anchor to sex anymore. It’s all determined by the individual,” he said. “So my obvious question for you is, how do I know if a person’s male or female? Is there some absolute standard people

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

Pope Francis continues to argue for two interrelated points that, while seemingly humane, compromise Western nations and expose their citizens to danger. He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.” Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not

In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn´t ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That´s what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women´s issues" and "women´s difficulties." Trump didn´t specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."

Zac Petkanas, Democrat National Committee Senior Adviser, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s TV show to explain the DNC position that a persons gender is what they say it is. The argument is fraught with downstream impact, because if a person’s gender is what they say it is at any given moment in time – then there’s immediately no such thing as Sexism or gender driven ERA laws. You cannot be sued for hiring all males, because some of those males can instantaneously be women, and you’re not allowed to ask about their gender when hiring…. because it’s a protected category… see where
