    In the course of her tin-foily attempt to deflect from her foundation’s pay-to-play scandals by smearing Donald Trump’s supporters as racist Klan members in thrall to Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton defended Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan from the alleged anti-Catholicism of Donald Trump’s campaign CEO Stephen K. Bannon. During her litany of racist innuendo, the Democratic nominee heaped special opprobrium on Bannon, who took a leave of absence as Breitbart’s Executive Chairman to join the Trump campaign. “Bannon has nasty things to say about pretty much everyone,” Clinton told the rally crowd in Reno, NV, on Thursday. “This spring, he...

    Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ non-profit network, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), is confident about the future success of its work in the field of immigration activism and may embark on a massive campaign on immigration issues in the near future. That’s according to a candid 62-page document reviewing OSF’s work on immigration reform discussed in May at the group’s board meeting in Montgomery, Ala. The document, which is one of 2,500 stolen from OSF in a massive hack and released over the weekend, shows that the Soros group believes that its $7.7 million investment in groups pushing for immigration reform...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan wins primary, defeats longshot GOP challenger praised by Donald Trump. Ryan was being challenged by Paul Nehlen. Nehlen had been courting Trump supporters and won praise from the Republican presidential nominee last week. But Trump endorsed Ryan days later. Ryan had largely ignored Nehlen in what had been a sleepy primary before Trump thanked Nehlen on Twitter for his comments defending Trump. Nehlen won the backing of some prominent conservative figures, including former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, but it wasn't enough to overcome Ryan's popularity in his southeastern Wisconsin district. Ryan was first elected in 1998...

    "Paul Ryan waves the Constitution around. He doesn’t even know his own job description," Paul Nehlen, Ryan’s challenger in Tuesday’s Wisconsin primary, told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon. Nehlen began by discussing Ryan’s role regarding trade in general and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) specifically. "We are under siege in almost every industry–I would argue every industry–by government overreach. We have to get back to the Tenth Amendment. Why do I send a dollar to Washington in order to get seventy cents in education back?" continued Nehlen. While discussing the fact that the race has generated national attention,...

I absolutely have nothing on this election, so I thought I'd start a thread, and we can add to it as information comes in. Some polls have Ryan way ahead, and a few find it less certain. On the other hand, wasn't this the climate before the Cantor election? He was sitting fat dumb and happy with a big lead in the polls? If I were a betting man, I'd have to put my money on Ryan and by all counts, he's a very popular guy...

The survey also found that 80 percent of respondents found Ryan favorable, with just 14 percent finding him unfavorable and six percent having no opinion. Nehlen, meanwhile, was viewed by 16 percent...

(Snip) Nehlen tried to attend the rally as a spectator, but told reporters after a Saturday-afternoon rally in Kenosha, that he was barred entry by the state party in an attempt to keep him out of the public eye.

    A dark horse who appeared out of the Wisconsin woodwork, businessman Paul Nehlen, was reportedly neck-and-neck with House Speaker Paul Ryan (shown) in the primary polls taken in early July. Pundits pooh-poohed those polls as being unreliable, but Ryan has since adjusted his primary campaign strategy to keep the public from asking him “unscripted” questions, queries that Nehlen keeps raising. Ryan doesn’t want to become another Eric Cantor, the former House Majority Leader who lost to a nobody in 2014. Nehlen suddenly became a national figure and symbol of the country’s populist uprising on Tuesday when Donald Trump turned Ryan’s...

    After witnessing Congressman Paul Ryan's performance as speaker of the House, it's apparent that if he ever had an ounce of conservatism, he left it in his other pants when he flew to D.C. Back in 2012, he could pass himself off as a conservative with a plan to balance the budget, but no more. Reagan's adage, trust but verify, becomes more relevant every day, and after reading the details of the Global Food Security Act of 2016, it will be apparent that Speaker Ryan is not worthy of our trust. The media has conditioned voters to believe that bipartisan...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) sent an urgent fundraising appeal Thursday evening that warned: “If we fail to protect our majority in Congress, we could be handing President Hillary Clinton a blank check.” Whether or not it was intentional, the phrase “blank check” has a political echo — one that suggests a deep fear by congressional Republicans that a sinking presidential candidate could take their majorities in the House and Senate with him, and that they are getting ready to desert him. It goes back 20 years, to an infamous chapter in internecine Republican politics. In the weeks before...

    (CNN)Donald Trump on Monday offered very public praise for a political candidate vying to unseat one of the top Republicans in Washington -- House Speaker Paul Ryan. Trump, who is facing an onslaught of criticism from Ryan and other top Republicans for his comments about the Muslim family of a deceased US soldier, thanked Ryan's Republican primary challenger, Paul Nehlen, on Twitter Monday for his "kind words." "Thanks to @pnehlen for your kinds words, very much appreciated," the Republican presidential nominee tweeted, in what amounts to an extraordinary show of discord between two of the most prominent faces of the...

    Paul Ryan supports Donald Trump for president — but does Trump support the Republican House Speaker against his primary challenger?

    An immigration watchdog group hopes to repeat the successful campaign that helped unseat Eric Cantor in 2014 by launching a similar ad targeting House Speaker Paul Ryan, highlighting his support for President Obama’s executive amnesty decrees, sanctuary cities for illegals and Syrian refugee resettlement programs. The ad by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC hammers “Lyin Paul Ryan” for his leading role in negotiating a $1.1 trillion omnibus bill that fully funded Obama’s amnesty plans, sanctuary cities, and expanded refugee program.

    A close associate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday claimed the father of a slain Muslim American soldier was a “Muslim Brotherhood agent” after Khizr Khan entered into an impassioned exchange with Trump over the qualities required in an American leader. Roger Stone, a former adviser to Trump’s campaign, tweeted that Khizr Khan was an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egypt-based Islamist organization, and provided a link to a website that claimed Khan promoted Islamic sharia law and was “probably” acting on behalf of “Muslim oil companies.” *snip* Shoebat listed incidents in which US Muslim servicemen have...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan have both come out with statements strongly defending Capt. Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier killed in combat in 2004 whose father Khizr Khan made an emotional plea against Donald Trump's candidacy at the Democratic National Convention. The statements come after Trump's controversial response to the Khan family, and after a personal appeal from Khizr Khan to to both the Senate Majority Leader and the House Speaker to denounce the GOP nominee. Neither McConnell nor Ryan mention Trump by name in their statements, but the repudiation of the GOP nominee is...

Paul Ryan is the kind of individual that would work with people on the other side of the aisle and that’s what we need.'” Gutierrez has worked tirelessly to expand immigration levels and open...
