  • Politico: Ryan Seeks Coronation

    10/12/2015 12:11:22 PM PDT · by Rockitz · 21 replies ^ | 12 Oct 2015 | Matthew Boyle
    House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) will not run for the House Speakership unless conservatives surrender “unconditionally” to him, Politico reports citing sources close to Ryan. “The conservatives who drove out Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) would need to get behind him unconditionally for speaker,” Politico’s Jake Sherman writes of the donor-class-backed Ryan. Ryan does not want to run for Speaker, he and his spokesman Brendan Buck have made “abundantly clear,” Sherman writes—before noting what exactly it would take for Ryan to get in the race. “But there’s one remote scenario, people close to him say, in...

    Shirley Sherrod sued Andrew Breitbart, Larry O’Connor and others over a video of Sherrod giving a speech before an NAACP group, in which she recounted how in the distant past when she worked for a state agency, she had discriminated against a white farmer. Breitbart’s widow was substituted as a defendant after his death. Sherrod was fired by the US Dept. of Agriculture as a result of their (over)reaction, and despite her clarifications and denials, indicating she had given some help to the farmer, and had learned from the experience to treat people fairly. We have analyzed that original tape,...

    House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), an ally of House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in the upcoming Speakership elections, tells reporters that he thinks any GOP House member who doesn’t back McCarthy on the floor should be kicked out of the GOP to go form their own third party. “We’ve been down this road several times and at some point you have to realize how elections work, how the Congress functions and how—what’s laid out clearly in the Constitution as a Democratic Republic,” Nunes says. Several conservative House members are considering bucking McCarthy on the floor...

    Former Florida Governor and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush responded to fellow candidate Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s criticism of his position on the Iran deal by saying “tearing up an agreement’s not a strategy” on Tuesday’s “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel. Jeb stated, [relevant remarks begin around 3:30], “Martha, what I said was that we need a strategy, tearing up an agreement’s not a strategy. The strategy needs to contain Iran’s ambitions in the region. We’re going to [give] $100 billion, if this agreement goes through, at least, to be able to continue to be the largest sponsor...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) may be “closest to Obama in his view on foreign policy,” as Dr. Charles Krauthammer put it on Tuesday, but he is facing stiff competition from Jeb Bush in that category. The former Florida governor praised Obama’s initial negotiating efforts with Iran on Tuesday, telling an audience in Denver that “we need to give him credit” for “bringing other people along and making it tougher.” The puzzling statement suggests the influence of James A. Baker III on the Bush campaign. Baker, a former Secretary of State, was the co-chair of the Iraq Study Group in 2006,...

    The crashing and burning of the once-promising Scott Walker for president campaign is very illustrative of a major media dynamic in conservative politics. Regardless of who you might support currently, I think you’ll recognize it. And keep in mind that this is just an observation, not an editorial comment about whether it should or should not be this way. It is what it is. Consider: way back on March 24th, 2015 BT (Before Trump), I posited the notion here at Breitbart that the “most important primary of all” was not Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina or even Florida. In fact,...

    Today, Salon gave a platform to a self-confessed pedophile to explain his urges in sympathetic terms. “I’m a Pedophile, But Not A Monster” reads the headline. It’s a long, self-pitying screed that ends with a call to be “understanding and supportive” of adults who crave sexual intimacy with children. Forgive me if I’m not first to start the standing ovation. In fact I’m pretty sure most people will find the existence on Salon’s website of this post both shocking and distasteful. The timing of Nickerson’s post, barely a week after multiple high-profile progressives rallied around progressive activist Sarah Nyberg, couldn’t...

    Four in five Breitbart Primary voters in August preferred non-politicians and anti-establishment candidates over anyone associated with the Washington, D.C. crowd or GOP establishment. In August’s Breitbart Primary, non-politicians and anti-establishment candidates Donald Trump (38.7%), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) (26.6%), Dr. Ben Carson (10%), and Carly Fiorina (5.6%) accounted for a whopping 81% of the first-place votes.More people (152,000) voted in August’s Breitbart Primary than in the previous two months combined (55,000 voted in June’s inaugural Breitbart Primary and 70,566 people voted in July’s Breitbart Primary), and it is clear that establishment Republican candidates need not apply for the White...

Says Rothman: “Trump is the right’s Obama, insofar as his policy preferences are ill-defined, pliable, and reflective of whatever the audience immediately before him wants them to be.” Such comparisons short-change Trump’s supporters.

    From Rich Lowry writing at Politico: Donald Trump’s rise in the polls is inextricably linked to the issue of immigration. He probably wouldn’t have achieved liftoff without it, and now that his campaign has entered a new phase of semi-attempted seriousness, it is fitting that an immigration plan is the first policy proposal he has committed to paper. There is no doubt The Donald is an accidental immigration hawk. After the 2012 election, he was scolding Mitt Romney for using the term “self-deportation” because it was too harsh. Trump’s journey is obvious: He made an inflammatory statement in his announcement...

In spite of Fox’s efforts — that were so blatant that even Bloomberg noticed — Trump survived Thursday’s debate.

    July 1, 2015 Mike Flynn has published about a million and a half words on politics and policy. Now, he's trying to put them into practice. Last month, Flynn, an editor for the conservative Breitbart News, announced his bid for the special election to replace former Rep. Aaron Schock in Illinois. The former columnist and founding editor of the Big Government blog decided to make his first run for political office after the scandal-tarred Schock's resignation, arguing that his role in the media prepared him for office. "My position is long-known, established, and out there, and I think that's something...

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, found little love in the press Tuesday after he reversed course on his previous support for a bill that would grant President Obama "Fast Track" authority to approve major international trade bills The 2016 Republican presidential candidate said in an op-ed that he changed his previous position on Congress' Trade Promotion Authority because the legislation had become too enmeshed in backroom deals and corruption. Both left- and right-leaning media immediately branded his announcement as an all-too-obvious political flip-flop.

    Results of a new poll show that Americans are fed up with career politicians and the establishment Republican base. In a Citizens United poll, Dr. Ben Carson came out as the top pick out of 2016 GOP presidential candidates. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came in second by just .1 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) came in third at 15.9 percent, and real estate mogul Donald Trump came in at fourth place with 13.1 percent. Citizens United, an organization for limited government, surveyed its members across America to find out whom they are currently supporting in the full field of GOP...

    House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) joined NPR Wednesday with Steve Inskeep to stress why he says it’s important for Congress to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which grants President Obama fast-track trade authority. With TPA, Congress cannot issue any amendments to trade agreements and merely gets an up or down vote on a final trade deal. Ryan’s go to remark when first questioned about TPA or the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) – which is part of three trade deals currently being negotiated – is he needs to clarify “misperceptions.” “We’re not considering the TPP, the Trans-Pacific...

    According to Public Citizen, a non-profit organization, President Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) would drastically extend President Bill Clinton’s North American Trade Agreement (NAFTA) from 1994 — which has been widely criticized for costing millions of Americans their jobs.

    GOP presidential candidate and billionaire businessman Donald Trump slammed President Obama’s trade agreements – especially the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) – which Obama argued the United States needs in order to better compete with China. However, according to a recent report by Politico, China may be trying to enter the TPP – defeating Obama’s main argument for finalizing the deal. “Of course China wants to join the trade negotiation because the deal is so pathetic and so bad,” Trump told Breitbart News. He added that China would continue to take advantage of America’s stupid politicians, who don’t know what they’re...

    Establishment Republicans desperately trying to secure the passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would give President Obama fast-track authority to secure congressional approval of at least three secretive trade deals, are now willing to increase taxes on small businesses in a way that would violate a pledge almost every Republican Congressman has taken when elected into office. To secure final passage through Congress of a package that would include TPA fast-track authority—which would ensure finalization of the secretive Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP) and Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), among other deals—the House would...

    WikiLeaks is releasing another part of President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP). The Healthcare Annex, according to WikiLeaks, “seeks to regulate state schemes for medicines and medical devices. It forces healthcare authorities to give big pharmaceutical companies more information about national decisions on public access to medicine, and grants corporations greater powers to challenge decisions they perceive as harmful to their interests.”

    Discovered inside the huge tranche of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obama’s executive authority when it comes to immigration matters. The mainstream media covered the Wikileaks document dump extensively, but did not mention the immigration chapter contained within it, so Breitbart News took the documents to immigration experts to get their take on it. Nobody has figured how big a deal the documents...
