    President Donald Trump sparked a barrage of Republican outrage on Tuesday after he blamed ďboth sidesĒ for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia ó including from House Speaker Paul Ryan. ďWe must be clear,Ē Ryan said after Trumpís remarks. ďWhite supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity.Ē Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Twitter, ďMr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.Ē Added Sen. Todd Young (R-Ind.): ďThis is simple: we must condemn and marginalize white supremacist groups, not encourage and embolden them.Ē Many other...
  • Nolan Ryan's epic beatdown of Robin Ventura was 24 years ago today

    Hall of Fame hurler Nolan Ryan left a lasting impression on the state of Texas and on Major League Baseball with an illustrious 27-year career. His 5,714 strikeouts, 324 wins and seven no-hitters cemented his legacy as one of the greats. But it was 24 years ago Friday that the Ryan Express immortalized himself -- and it didnít have much to do with his pitching that day. On August 4, 1993, the 46-year-old Ryan drilled Chicago White Sox third baseman Robin Ventura in the elbow with a fastball. Ventura then made a decision he undoubtedly regrets to this day. He...
  • Vanity - NO RECESS Congress THIS YEAR...PERIOD. VOTE YAY or NAY.

    07/31/2017 6:23:57 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 20 replies
    Simple: Both Republican, Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell & Republican, House Speaker, Paul Ryan should cancel any Congressional recesses for the rest of this year, immediately. These lazy, good for nothing, non-productive, low life Senators & House members, both Democrats & Republicans are on recess far too much, living the life of rich, elite, scum & vermin...period. Bottom line...there was plenty and ample time to pass Obamacare Repeal & Replacement, Massive Tax Reform & Infrastructure Renewal, since January 3, 2017. Nothing has happened. Please vote "YAY or NAY" on this critical issue. And.....McConnell and Ryan must go.

    Well..Priebus is gone, and now we will see if the House and Senate Republicans immediately fire both Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. You can blame McCain, Murkowsky & Collins for the Obamcare Repeal Failure, and, yes they are all turncoats & traitors to the American People and Republican caucus, but the real culprits are Ryan & McConnell. When a Democrat leader of either the House & Senate issues an edict on how will Senators vote on issue, every Democrat falls into line. Why? That is why they have leaders. Both McConnell and Ryan are not leaders, rather, they are weak...

    Former House Speaker, John Boehner said the GOP won't be able to repeal and replace Obamacare at a closed-door tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV Friday.John Boehner told a private crowd that Obamacare will never be repealed or replaced by the GOP because Americans and state officials are used to it in a video obtained by The Washington Post.Boehner also warned that Republicans will get annihilated in 2018 midterm elections if they fail to pass healthcare and tax legislation."Here we are, seven months into this year, and yet they've not passed this bill. Now, they're never...they're not going to repeal and...

    House Speaker, Paul Ryan once again showed he is the enemy within by defending Special Counsel Robert Mueller as ‚Äėanything but‚Äô a Dem partisan. The Washington Examiner reported that Paul Ryan spoke to Wisconsin-based radio host, Jay Weber on Monday and defended the witch hunt by Mueller, saying,¬†‚ÄúRemember, Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican who served in the Republican administration who crossed over and stayed on ‚Äôtil his term ended.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a biased partisan.

    Draining The Swamp 2.0 After viewing this latest debacle with health care and now probably looking at a tax debate that will likely cut corporate taxes while not doing anything for the middle class, we on the Right significantly need to start to understand the difference between strategy and tactics. The future of our country requires it. And that will mean we have to look within ourselves as conservatives. Sometimes we think so purely about our beliefs that we confuse strategy and tactics. A simple definition of the difference between the two would be that strategy is how we view...

    Steve Bannon reportedly called House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) ďa limp-dick mother****** who was born in a petri dish at the Heritage Foundation,Ē referring to the think tank whose fiscal conservative policies the representative espouses. The detail is one of many bizarre nuggets in Devilís Bargain, a new book on White House chief strategist Bannonís role in President Donald Trumpís political rise, by Bloomberg Businessweek reporter Joshua Green, who has extensively covered the former Breitbart chairman. Green wrote that Bannonís comment on Ryan came during the spring of 2016, when it became increasingly possible that Trump would become the GOP...

    Both Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan are total failures at leadership and, are 100% "Never Trumpers". I ask you good folks this simple question. Should both Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan be thrown out by their own caucuses or plainly be forced to resign immediately?

    Short & Sweet.....Mitch McConnell & Paul Ryan must either, resign their leadership posts or, be voted out by the GOP Caucus. These anti-Trump, low life, do nothing, incompetents, should lose their jobs "TODAY"!!! We sent them to Washington to support our POTUS (Trump). They have done no such thing!!! When Congress convened on January 3, 2017 Both McConnell & Ryan should have had healthcare legislation 100% ready to be voted on, repealing Obamacare. They had nothing, because they thought life would be fine with Hillary Clinton as POTUS!!! You know what they are, these two buffoons, traitors to the POTUS,...

    Without fanfare, Paul Ryan & Mitch McConnell must be immediately removed as leaders of the House and Senate. After eight years of assuring the American voters they would move immediately, and repeal "Obamacare", they have done no such thing!!! They let their members float around on congress recesses, instead of hard lining them to action without giving the any time off!!! They have no functional plan after all the time they have had to prepare for the abolishment of Obamacare....SAD!!! They do not support POTUS, Trump and are more akin to love the Democrat scum/vermin Establishment!! Republicans...broom them right now...

    A progressive, mustachioed Bernie Sanders supporter has shot to fame after announcing a challenge to Republican house speaker Paul Ryan. Democrat Randy Bryce, who goes by @IronStache on Twitter, is an ironworker, union organiser and veteran who launched his bid for Wisconsinís first congressional district on Monday. Since then, his evocative campaign advert, which shows a denim- and boot-clad Bryce discussing healthcare with his mother and engaging in various forms of metalwork, has been watched more than 330,000 times, and the 52-year-old has attracted a level of internet acclaim rarely seen among political candidates. ďI knew that we would have...

    This is an Excerpt. Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on Sunday she has extreme reservations about the U.S. Senate's healthcare overhaul and does not think it will be able to pass this week. The proposal released Thursday calls for a slower phase-out of the Medicaid expansion than a bill adopted earlier by the House.... Rand Paul, who has rejected the plan along with fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Ron Johnson, said fundamental problems remained that would leave taxpayers subsidizing health insurance companies. So it is possible that Mr. McConnell views the potential failure of a...

    The urgency was easy to find inside the private receptions and closed-door briefings at the Koch brothers' donor retreat in Colorado Springs, where the billionaire conservatives and their chief lieutenants warned this weekend of a rapidly shrinking window to push their agenda through Congress. No agenda items mattered more to the conservative Koch network than the GOP's promise to overhaul the nation's tax code and repeal and replace President Barack Obama's health care law. At the moment, however, both are bogged down by GOP infighting that jeopardizes their fate...... "If we don't get health care, none of us are coming...

    President Trump, time to read up on Harry Truman. The president has mentioned Andrew Jackson as a role model, yet as Congress careens toward a recess it hasnít earned, ďGive íem Hell HarryĒ might be the better history teacher. Truman, remember, got his back up and cut short Congressí vacation at a crucial moment in 1948. What a move that would be for Trump. Congress has failed to pass a tax bill or repeal ObamaCare ó or deal with the debt ceiling. Yet the lollygagging lawmakers are scheduled to take off the whole month of August for a taxpayer-funded vacation....

    The thick, thick irony of it all. The man who never wanted to take the relatively thankless and difficult job as Speaker of the House because he wanted to become President one day may yet become the 46th President of the United States of America afterall. Allow me to explain. In short, there is a line of succession for the office of the President. First in line is the Vice-President - in this case Mike Pence. The thing is that Mike Pence has a few legal problems -like his boss President Trump. Heís hired outside legal counsel, but that really...

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Tuesday that President Trump should allow special counsel Robert Mueller to ďdo his job independentlyĒ and that Ryan would be ďsurprisedĒ if the president fired Mueller ó a step some Trump allies say is being considered. "I'd be surprised if he did that," Ryan said in an interview on the ďHugh Hewitt Show.Ē "I think he should let Bob Mueller do his job, do his job independently, and do his job quickly, because I think that that's what he would want to have happen."

    Just days after launching a new political action committee, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden will join Republican officials and donors at a weekend retreat hosted by former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Biden will be interviewed by Romney during a Friday evening event in Park City, Utah, at the invitation-only summit, according to a Biden spokesman and participants briefed on the schedule. The speaker lineup for what is traditionally a gathering of Romney allies is packed with high-profile Republicans, among them House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain. Ryan was Romneyís running mate in 2012....
