Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of
I doubt any closet skeletons. More likely distancing himself from the Trump agenda so he can run as the Supreme RINO in the next election. I don´t believe a word of the ´spend more time with family´ rot. They all crave power, money and sex (for some) at the expense of everything else.
Something´s up. We just don´t know what it is. btw, politics notwithstanding, Paul Ryan is a very smart guy. He entered politics when he was in college, I don´t think he´s ever done anything else. Maybe he just doesn´t want to be associated with a genuinely conservative agenda? But if not, why not? It is hard to believe that this has anything to do with sex although in these times who knows anything anymore. Ryan at least appears to be a regular guy, good family man, etc. Maybe he was being blackmailed by the black hats in our intelligence community for some obscure financial transgression? I´m sure we´ll find out eventually.
I am really tired of all their drama. Just do your jobs stop with the games. If your tired resign hope there is a good one out there who knows that they work for the American people and not their petty special interests. It´s about the Country and not them.
Marxism, by definition, involves intrigue...deception...drama and all the things that make for a great Hollywood Movie.
Conservatism is a bland, no fun, boring notion of "Good Governance" and practical management wherein the populace may still promote great and glorious social change but they simply may not use the massive power of government to do so.
Social warriors, some honest, some criminal, have, for centuries, understood that massive government programs (EG--Jewish Annihilation or Carbon Credits) are the fast track for social engineering. However our founding fathers understood that this violates the notion of "The Consent of the Governed"....people were already free to embrace any social change they liked but good little Marxist or Nazis or Islamists want to use FORCE....and that is the problem.
....and that is why they should be, IMHO, hunted down and slaughtered to the last man.
For: Empowering government to forcibly engineer the lives and futures of citizens without their consent.
Not for retribution but for endangering the foundational principles of Liberty and Limited Government.
Ya...sounds pretty severe but how´s that tolerance and diversity thingee workin´ out for ya ?
Our Big Shot Elites can tolerate anything except someone with whom they do not agree.
Diversity is a dozen Marxists of all different colors in the same room.
Could it be he has seen some very bad numbers for his chances against Paul Nehlen next year? He has such a rotten and corrupted record of kowtowing for Obama during his tenure as Speaker that I believe he knows the handwriting is on the wall for him. I am really surprised at the level of cowardice in the GOPE members of congress right now. But OTOH, I am thrilled that they are leaving and saving us the trouble of booting them.
Makes me wonder if the Hush Fund list is getting ever closer to being exposed. The release of the first installment of the big report cannot come fast enough. Wonder how much of Ryan is going to be revealed in that report.
There are many publications´ stories that shouldn´t be posted until they are fact checked. Politico is one. Their accuracy rating is in the toilet. Ryan has denied that this true. That is if the latest article is true. /s
Senators were reaching for a deal overnight Sunday to try to end a two-day-old government shutdown, hoping to prevent the worst of the effects of furloughs that hits in earnest on Monday. GOP leaders made a last-minute overture, promising to hold a broad immigration debate over the ensuing weeks, but Democrats said that still wasn’t good enough to lift their blockade and allow the government to reopen. Another showdown vote is slated for noon on Monday. “Talks will continue but we have yet to reach an agreement,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said. But momentum was building against Democrats. Republicans — including several
A few Ping-Pong balls broke the Cold War ice around China a generation ago, following Richard Nixon’s stunning trip to Beijing (when it was still called Peiping), and soon the United States and China were on their way to normal diplomatic relations. China even toned down its colorful bellicose rhetoric about what it could do to America and the West, probably putting a few of Chairman Mao’s best writers out of business. Kim Jong-un’s writers learned a lot about theatrical rhetoric from the Chairman’s writing shop. This time the leader of an all-female pop group may be the designated Ping-Pong ball. Hyon
Washington — The Senate voted Thursday to renew for six years a surveillance program that collects the content of an unknown number of Americans´ email, text messages, photos and other electronic communication without a warrant. The Senate voted 65-34 to renew the controversial law, known as Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The action came after Senate leaders narrowly won a vote Tuesday night to allow the renewal bill to move forward. The House approved the legislation last week, and President Trump is expected to sign the bill before the law expires at midnight Friday. Federal intelligence agencies, which urged Congress
French film legend Brigitte Bardot attacked the #MeToo movement Wednesday, claiming that actresses who complain of sexual harassment were just looking for publicity. "The vast majority are being hypocritical and ridiculous," she told the French magazine Paris Match. "Lots of actresses try to play the tease with producers to get a role. And then, so we will talk about them, they say they were harassed," declared the 83-year-old Bardot. "I was never the victim of sexual harassment. And I found it charming when men told me that I was beautiful or I had a nice little backside," said the actress, who became a
Bloomberg broke a story just as the New York Stock Exchange began trading on Wednesday: China Weighs Slowing or Halting Purchases of U.S. Treasuries The story turned out to be the latest in a string of Fake News reports by a news organization owned by Mike Bloomberg, whose opposition to President Trump knows no bounds. Bloomberg´s anger at Trump has rendered his company unreliable when it comes to financial news. Let us review. The financial news service on February 12, 2017, reported: America’s Biggest Creditors Dump Treasuries in Warning to Trump It was Fake News which Bloomberg News has never retracted. Zero Hedge had a profane but hilarious
As I await the editing of "Fake News Follies of 2017," I re-read it and think disquieting thoughts about why Fake News replaced the real stuff. And I have come to a few conclusions about journalists in general that explain this foolishness. Most journalists hold dearly beliefs that simply are not true. The first wrong belief is "The pen is mightier than the sword." English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton wrote this in 1839. No, it is not. If the pen were mightier than the sword, then we would have no wars. Instead, people would resolve their problems by writing nasty things to one another. Newspapers
President Trump goes in for his annual physical Friday, and the doctors will only look at things like his blood pressure, listen to his heart, bang on his knees with a little rubber mallet and turn him around for the ever-popular prostate exam. But it’s what’s inside his head that obsesses the Democrats, certain psychiatrists, assorted sorehead losers and others desperate to relieve their own Trump Derangement Syndrome. Robert Mueller’s witch hunt has turned up no sorcerer, only an irrelevant apprentice or two, and the great search for a Russian in the White House woodpile is running on fumes. Mr. Mueller could
Free speech, the driving principle of the American experiment in how free men govern themselves, is a principle that does not always travel well. Free speech requires constant defense and the careful attention of loving hands. Mere lip service won’t do it. Americans are armed with the First Amendment, the most important amendment of all, and it does not guarantee polite or even responsible speech, but free speech. The humblest citizen is entitled to say whatever he pleases. He can expect to pay the consequences of irresponsible speech, but the government can’t stop him from saying it. Certain politicians even here from
Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage has revealed the details of his meeting with the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM. Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam asked Farage to recap his encounter with Barnier, who has hosted many Remainer and Opposition politicians since the Brexit negotiations began but was reluctant to meet the former UKIP supremo. “I had a suspicion that the real views of 17.4 million people had never quite been put to him,” explained the veteran MEP, referring to the referendum voters who triggered Brexit by voting to Leave the
Tel Aviv — The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which ministers to so-called Palestinian refugees, would not comment when asked by Breitbart Jerusalem to provide the total number of Palestinian “refugees” that UNRWA services in Lebanon. This after Lebanon’s census data recently placed the number of Palestinian “refugees” living in the country at about one third of the nearly 500,000 reported by UNRWA. UNRWA runs camps and projects for so-called Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. On its website UNRWA claims “5.1 million refugees” are “covered by our protection mandate,” purportedly including about 500,000 in Lebanon. While
The already-fired Steve Bannon is — let´s assume — finally gone as a close White House adviser. There´s little point in rehashing the pluses and minuses of his influence or the extent thereof. Time to move on. (snip) That person should be Larry Elder. Yes, that choice is unabashedly "racist" ("useful idiots" might prefer "multi-cultural" or some such) because Elder is African-American, although the well-known author, lawyer and political commentator could easily stand on his own merits without the slightest hint of affirmative action from any quarter. Nevertheless, the man is known as "The Sage from South Central" (Los Angeles´ black belt) and that
Kim Jong-un is entitled to feel pretty good about his skill in playing Washington and the West. There’s a history of North Korea getting what it wants and not paying anything for it. A succession of American presidents, Republican and Democrat, have been eager to play the mark. Donald Trump seems to be cut from different cloth, but it’s early and too soon to determine the strength of his kidney. But the world can hope. Presidents before him earned their presidential chops dealing with diplomats, senators and assorted supplicants with good manners and proper deference, and the Donald absorbed the true
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York pinned the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, saying it has become "next to impossible" to negotiate with the White House.In a press availability, Schumer said he and Trump have been close to a deal to fund the government at least once.But, he said the "hard right" in the Republican Party later convinces Trump not to strike a deal with him."[Trump] won´t take yes for an answer," Schumer said. (Tweet) Schumer said that he does not know whether Trump´s apparent waffling on a deal is the work of adviser Stephen Miller, a
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no
The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,
Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of
Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo. There are generally two ways it could be done, the HPSCI vote is the most likely.As more people have become aware
Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey
Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.
Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
