    House Speaker Paul Ryan said during a Friday interview Democrats will “have to stomach” the fact that President Donald Trump will advance immigration reform. Ryan spoke with WISN’s Vicki McKenna at length about immigration and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “They’ll have to stomach the fact that yes, this president will be successful in doing something that hasn’t been done for years, which is advancing some immigration reform, advancing security, advancing enforcement, and advancing a law that fixes the DACA problem so these kids don’t get kicked out,” Ryan said. “That would be a victory for this...

    UPDATE: From the Daily Caller just now: "House Agrees To $1.6 Billion For Border Wall." ORIGINAL POST: The media crashed and burned last night over a Democratic Party lie about a deal on amnesty for some illegal aliens. After a dinner with the president, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer said, “We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.” There is no deal. The president said so this morning. Pelosi and Schumer jumped the gun because they hope to gain leverage...
  • Paul Ryan Buckles Under Trump Pressure – Announces Border Wall Funding Happening Now

    09/15/2017 8:32:40 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 36 replies ^ | 9/14/17 | DCWhispers
    The media hasn’t mentioned it much because it proves that Donald Trump is decisively outmaneuvering the opposition Republicans. The tactic was simple. Mr. Trump reached out to Democrats with a basic “can we get something done for the American people?” request. This put enormous pressure on Paul Ryan and his cadre of obstructionist Republicans to start moving on at least some of the Trump agenda. This is Ryan buckling under that pressure. This is Ryan conceding the power of Trump and the millions of Trump supporters have forced his hand. There was certainly some DACA negotiation behind the scenes –...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that it was "not in our nation's interest" to expel the roughly 800,000 young people protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "I do believe that kicking these 800,000 kids out to countries that they have probably not been to since they were toddlers, countries that speak languages that they may not even know, is not in our nation’s interest," Ryan said...

    Breitbart ^ | September 12 | Ian Mason
    House Speaker Paul Ryan, at a private dinner earlier this year, said he thought only “one member” wanted to build a wall across the entire U.S.-Mexico border, Breitbart News has learned from multiple sources with direct knowledge of the comments, including former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). The dinner, sources said, took place on the eve of the House’s passage of two relatively minor immigration bills at the end of June: Kate’s Law and sanctuary city reforms. The far wider reaching Davis-Oliver Act was tabled at the same time. “Ryan told a group of Republicans he met with … that only...
  • The True Conservatives Hype A Trumpocalypse In A Desperate Bid For Attention

    The latest Never Trump meme is that Donald Trump has defected to the Democrats, a notion that might charitably be labeled “wishful thinking” if it actually involved any thinking. But the “wishful” part is in full effect as this tattered remnant of worshippers at the altar of Establishment Conservatism seeks to revive their failed cult and reassume their position as the priesthood of all things on the right. You remember Establishment Conservatism, right? It is to conservatism as Unitarians are to Christianity – “Well, I sort of believe in something, but mostly I just want whatever I do validated.” Establishment...

    Since Trump’s taken over the White House, Republicans have fought tooth and nail to keep the Democratic agenda alive. Witness: Obamacare. Where’s the repeal? Oh yes, that’s right. There is no repeal. So goes the fight with the border wall — nothing, nada, except headlines like this one, from Politico in July: “House Republicans seek to dodge border wall vote.”

    WASHINGTON -- Meet President Donald Trump's new best friends. He calls them "Chuck and Nancy," not Senate Minority Leader Schumer or House Minority Leader Pelosi. He met with them Wednesday morning, along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan. The sit-down ended with Trump breezing past the GOP's wish list and giving Democrats what they wanted, a three-month extension of government funding to avoid a shutdown, an increase in the debt ceiling and aid for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Later that afternoon, appearing before supporters in North Dakota, Trump crooned about their "great bipartisan meeting." Sure,...

    So President Trump calls the leadership of the Republicans and Democrats into the Oval Office today for a meeting about what to do about the debt ceiling and funding the government, and he promptly does something that Washington should’ve expected, but didn’t because they’re locked in to bad conventional wisdom: he overruled his aides to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi over Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. The pivot is real, and it’s spectacular. Ryan and McConnell were flabbergasted.

    Yesterday morning, Paul Ryan attacked President Trump and others for trying to quickly pass a bill to provide emergency funds for Hurricane Harvey relief. President Trump was forced to go around Speaker Ryan in order to get the deal done, which temporarily raises the debt ceiling (until December) so Congress can allocate Hurricane relief as quickly as possible. Speaker Ryan called this deal “ridiculous and disgraceful,” and Lou Dobbs absolutely UNLOADED on him in a segment that is going viral!

    Washington Post ^ | 09/07/2017 | Robert Costa and Ashley Parker
    Several influential House conservatives are privately plotting ways to use the legislative calendar this fall to push their hard-line agenda — including quiet discussions about possibly mounting a leadership challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan. The group has gone so far as to float the idea of recruiting former House speaker Newt Gingrich or former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum as potential replacements for Ryan (R-Wis.) should there be a rebellion. The Constitution does not require that an elected member of the House serve as speaker. While the chances that a non-House member could mount a credible threat to Ryan...

    President Trump for once united Washington on Wednesday — in shock. Republicans and Democrats alike were left scratching their heads after the president did a deal with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over the express wishes of the most senior members of his own party. Trump signed up to terms proposed by the Democrats on government funding, which would soon have run out, and the nation’s debt ceiling, which would soon have been hit. Crucially, another funding measure and another hike in the debt ceiling will be required before the end of the year....

    Congressional Republicans are a mystery. P.J. O'Rourke said it best: The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it. Barack Obama single handedly dismantled the democrat party, losing more than 1,000 seats during his tenure. The GOP now controls the House, Senate and the White House but you'd never know it. They act like beaten dogs. They cower before democrats. They are afraid of their own shadows. And good golly are they...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday told “Dreamers” to “rest easy” because his chamber will work with President Trump to come up with a plan to reform the immigration process a day after the administration began phasing out the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program. “We will not be advancing legislation that doesn’t have the support of President Trump because we are going to work with the president on how to do this legislation,” Ryan (R-Wis.) said during a news conference of Republican House leaders. “I think people should rest easy, and I think the president made the right call...

    WASHINGTON -- No issue has torn President Donald J. Trump as much DACA -- that is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program enacted by the Obama administration in June 2012 to provide temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. The White House has said that it will issue a decision on DACA's future Tuesday. As a candidate, Trump had promised his supporters that if elected, he would eliminate DACA on "day one." But after he came into office, the new president could not pull the trigger. "But the DACA situation is a...

    It’s official. Senator Paul Ryan is insane. I received a letter in the mail from him today on the letterhead of the National Republican Congressional Committee. The letter is dated “Monday Morning” (?) and came in a large envelope bearing a 3˘ stamp and two 1˘ stamps (depicting strawberries and peaches) but no date on the postmark — in fact, no date of any kind, anywhere in the materials. The first page of Speaker Ryan’s letter contained a long code [000AG002392] and an urgent warning: “If for any reason the number on your State of the Nation Survey...” (which he...

    President Trump is mulling a split decision on the “Dreamers.” White House sources say the president is moving toward ending new work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, without changing the status of the roughly 800,000 already enrolled in the program. Trump has spent the last week trying to decide what to do with the program started by former President Barack Obama in 2012, which allows young immigrants brought to the country as children to work in the US legally, while shielding them from deportation. Despite Trump’s strident campaign speeches calling DACA an illegal “amnesty,”...
