    She trotted out these dubious accusations during an interview on PBS’s “NewsHour” in which host host Judy Woodruff challenged none of her claims — and in which she, Pelosi, had a facial mask hanging off her neck as if she were a cowboy. The claims began pouring out of the speaker after Woodruff asked her to cite the factors that have been “impeding the ability of the federal government to address this” crisis. . . . “I have tried to act in a bipartisan way,” the speaker continued Tuesday. “As I said, three bills in March, bipartisan. Easter, I had...

    Paul Ryan is moving his family to the city he was always giddy to leave. The former speaker of the House and onetime GOP vice presidential nominee is leaving his longtime home of Janesville, Wis., and will rent a house in the Maryland suburbs of Washington. "Now in the private sector, Paul and his family are temporarily renting a house in Maryland, and he’ll be spending time there as well as their family home in Janesville," a Ryan aide told POLITICO.
  • Split over Pelosi's 'immorality' comment on border wall reveals fissure in Democratic Party

    Washington Times ^ | Jan 17, 2019 | By David Sherfinski and S.A. Miller
    Senate Democrats are refusing to embrace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric denouncing border walls as an “immorality,” but they are being careful to avoid undercutting her new role as the party’s leader in the shutdown standoff. Mrs. Pelosi has moved unsteadily since seizing the speaker’s gavel amid the partial government shutdown, including the “immorality” comment and her shifting explanations for why she told President Trump to postpone the State of the Union address. Still, she garners strong support from Democrats on both side of the Capitol for remaining steadfast in shutdown fight and refusing Mr. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion...

    During an interview on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pointed fingers at NBC for “undermining” her chance of getting back the Speaker’s gavel if Democrats take the House in November. Earlier this week, NBC published an article citing 51 Democrats who would not support Pelosi for House Speaker. According to NBC: As Democrats battle to retake control of Congress in November, their leader — Nancy Pelosi — could also be facing a coming fight of her own. Fifty Democrats running for the House say they won’t support the California lawmaker for speaker, according to an...

    Former Ohio State University wrestler, Mark Coleman is now walking back his claims Congressman Jim Jordan knew about sexual abuse allegations against a doctor when he was a wrestling coach at the college over 20 years ago. ~~~~Snip~~~~ Mark Coleman told the Wall Street Journal in early July, “There’s no way unless he’s got dementia or something that he’s got no recollection of what was going on at Ohio State. I have nothing but respect for this man, I love this man, but he [Jim Jordan] knew as far as I’m concerned.” Now the former wrestler is walking back his...

    Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections. If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the...

    Paul D. Ryan unanimously won the nomination of his House Republican colleagues Tuesday to continue as speaker and serve as the chief legislative partner to President-elect Donald Trump. “Welcome to the dawn of a new unified Republican government,” he told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s vote. Ryan must now win a floor vote in January of all 435 House members. If about two dozen Republicans were to withhold their support, his election would be thrown in doubt. Several Republicans made clear this week that although Trump’s victory may have eased the internal party tensions that threatened Ryan’s speakership before the election,...
  • House conservatives plot coup against Paul Ryan

    Conservatives don’t have enough votes to oust Ryan (R-Wis.). But they say their coup movement shows his hold on the speakership is far more tenuous than he realizes. Denying Ryan re-election on the first ballot would undermine his political future and cast him as a conservative pariah, they say, and may give conservatives leverage to enact rules changes that would help them push their agenda for years. “If he loses the speaker election, he’s not going to be president,” one conservative member told The Huffington Post on Monday. Conservatives hold no illusion of preventing Ryan from remaining speaker (or, you...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is being challenged in the Republican primary by a Wisconsin businessman who says he once volunteered for the congressman but now feels betrayed. Paul Nehlen, of Delavan, Wisconsin, launched his underdog campaign last week. Nehlen says Ryan is an “establishment politician” who supports out-of-control spending and “dangerous immigration policies.” Ryan’s campaign spokesman Zack Roday declined comment. …

    The Washington Times ^ | December 24, 2015 | S.A. Miller
    Conservative activists are targeting House Speaker Paul D. Ryan for a primary challenge next year as retribution for the massive spending bill the Wisconsin Republican ushered through Congress at the end of the recent session. The effort is spearheaded by Wisconsin tea party groups and pro-life activists, who feel betrayed by Mr. Ryan’s nearly $2 trillion package. The spending bill avoided a government shutdown by surrendering on conservatives’ top priorities, including giving up the fights to defund Planned Parenthood and to block President Obama’s plan to bring at least 10,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. The hunt is on to...

    In a Tuesday morning interview with radio host Bill Bennett, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended his omnibus bill’s controversial expansion in the H-2B visa program, which would allow foreign workers to fill blue-collar American jobs, by arguing that if the provision were not included, American companies would be forced to shut their doors. Bennett pressed Ryan on the details of the H-2B visa expansion, slipped 700-pages into Ryan’s 2,009-page omnibus spending bill—asking Ryan directly, “Do you believe there are not enough Americans to fill these jobs?” In response, Ryan described the H-2B visa expansion as “a very small, discrete provision.”...

    "Where there is no vision, the people perish..." (Proverbs 29:18, KJV)It was George H.W. Bush who reportedly dismissed an idea from a friend that he should spend time at Camp David thinking about what he might do should he become president. According to a January 26, 1987 article in Time magazine, Bush is said to have dismissed the suggestion with this line: "Oh, the vision thing."Now comes the new speaker of the House, Rep. Paul Ryan, who is not only embracing the "vision thing," but is accusing his fellow Republicans of not having any vision at all.Appearing last weekend on...

    While normal Americans go about their business, the political world is anxiously awaiting two men to decide if they want to lead. Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., debated one another in 2012, but now they seem to be playing a game of indifference when it comes to their political futures. I’m writing this on Tuesday night, so anything could happen by the time you see this, but given their reluctance or inability to make a decision, I might be better served to wait until next week to run this. Biden has wanted to be president...

    Conservatives would be nowhere without him. Now they need to back him. Case closed. (UPDATE: On Wednesday evening, the Freedom Caucus announced that a “supermajority” of its members support Paul Ryan for Speaker. While they did not reach the 80 percent threshold of the caucus members needed to issue a formal endorsement, this is, as Rep. Ryan put it, “a positive step toward a unified Republican team.” Ryan’s becoming speaker is still no sure thing, though more likely than it was Wednesday morning. Some Freedom Caucus members seem hesitant to switch their endorsement from Rep. Daniel “Not the Dictionary Guy”...

    When Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., withdrew from the race for speaker of the House, some people wondered whether it signaled the approaching death of the Republican Party. It was indeed a potent moment, for the majority leader, backed by a massive majority of his congressional party colleagues, was derailed by an intransigent and habitually disruptive minority. Yet the exit of McCarthy may end up being the party's lifeline. For Republicans now have the opportunity instead to elect Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who is both less inclined to seek power and, we think, more likely to use it effectively. GOP...

    A strong majority of anti-establishment conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus voted on Wednesday night to support Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin for House speaker, assuring that he will have the votes to secure the post next week and averting a leadership crisis for Republicans. Mr. Ryan indicated that he was prepared to seize the gavel and try to bring unity to his party, which has been riven over how House leaders exert authority over members. That fight had become so bitter that it forced the resignation of Speaker John A. Boehner and derailed the candidacy of the majority...

    And they're completely reasonable. I know there’s no getting through to those of you who think Paul Ryan is a RINO!!!!! because he’s made deals with Democrats in a divided Congress. Anyone with a governing record is going to have things like that in his or her history, and if you don’t understand that then I don’t know what to tell you - except that you’re going to spend your entire life shrieking that no one is acceptable to you and everyone who’s ever done anything but talk is a sellout. So I’ll just let you shriek and try to...
