  • Vanity: Paul Ryan to Blame for House Losses

    VANITY
    Did nothing of value as Speaker. Didn't discourage at least half of those looking to retire into sticking around another two years where we could have maintained control. He lined up his K Street job and started throwing bombs towards Trump (which he also did a few days before the 2016 election). Trump worked and saved the Senate and made the difference in some key governor races. Tonight was not a Trump defeat. Part of it was history -- midterm election usually results in out of power party winning. But this was winnable. Ryan blew the House. /rant

    President Trump criticized House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday after Ryan broke with the president on his plan to end birthright citizenship for children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants, and said Ryan should be more worried about holding the House in next week's midterm elections.

    I know it's often painful to listen to President Barky give a speech. But listen to him speak in Wisconsin the other day. Tell me the guy is not losing it. I queued up the video at the 24 minute mark. The next two minutes are great for a laugh. He's obviously trying to sound natural like Trump, but he can't pull it off. He stammers and can't get his words out. He also overdoes his gestures and tries to speak in various voices. Is Trump in this guy's head or what? Bhaahaha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taVde5N-GG4
  • Levin: Paul Ryan was dead wrong on birthright citizenship. Here’s how

    Conservative Review ^ | October 30, 2018 | Carmel Kookogey
    Tuesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin ripped Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., for his response to President Trump’s statement that he plans to issue an executive order to end birthright citizenship. Ryan claimed the 14th Amendment creates the birthright citizenship and that therefore such an executive order would be unconstitutional. “There’s been no law passed that conveys birthright citizenship onto illegal aliens. There’s been no Supreme Court decision that definitively confers birthright citizenship onto illegal alien children. Nobody’s a hundred percent certain how this came to be. But everybody seems to be a hundred percent certain...

    Foxconn’s planned $10 billion electronic display factory in southeastern Wisconsin could be a boon for local workers vying for the potential 13,000 jobs. The facility could also be a headache for other area manufacturers, possibly sparking a heated competition for engineers, electricians, machinists, and other skilled laborers. The talent war could also spell opportunity for organizations that help employers find and hire such professionals. Patrick O’Rahilly, founder and CEO of FactoryFix, believes his company could be well positioned to capitalize on the Foxconn effect, if and when it materializes. FactoryFix is a Chicago-based startup that has developed software to connect...

    MOSINEE (CBS 58) - President Donald Trump is coming to Wisconsin. The President is making a stop in Mosinee to campaign for republican candidates. Residents like Curtis Beste say the presidential visit is big news for a small town. “That’s good for us, being a small town and really out of the big city areas, but we have a big enough airport to get some sizable planes in there,” said Beste. He has to work and probably won’t go, but a lot of his neighbors will. “I think it’ll be packed, people are really talking about it,” said Beste. “I...

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

    A top Republican senator is demanding documents regarding the FBI’s 2016 interactions with a lawyer working for the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign who provided information on Russian meddling. Fox News reported last week that Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann gave documents pertaining to the Russia probe to then-FBI general counsel James Baker, according to Baker’s own testimony. Perkins Coie is the same firm that, while working for the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig into then-candidate Donald Trump’s background – resulting in the controversial anti-Trump ‘dossier.’ In a letter being sent...
