  1. “This bill offends my principles, but I’m going to vote FOR this bill to protect my principles.” ???

    In what world does that make any sense, other than in a world where that particular (ahem) speaker has no “principles”???

        Yes know doubt about it, he will do some kind of scorched earth policy for a number of things over the next year or so. He does not care anymore, Biden who he wanted running won’t be, and Hillary he can’t stand. So he won’t care what state the country is left in by the time he leaves office. The amazing thing is he has done immense damage to the democrat party as well and at the local level it is horrifying what he has done to them (although most of them are so brain-washed, they can’t see this at all). This is one very bad guy, fundamentally anti-american to his core.

        But their is hope and a resolution to this nightmare, and that is Donald Trump 😀

      California has been doing this now for years… excerpt from article.

      In a 63-page handbook, the Education Department urged schools to create support groups for illegal immigrant students and their families and warned against asking about students’ legal status.

      “Message publicly that your institution supports undocumented students and their rights to a high-quality education,” the handbook said.

      The administration hopes to enlist schools in the effort to normalize the experience of being in the country without authorization. The guidance specifically urged schools to challenge leaders in states “with exclusionary or less inclusive policies.”

    Fantastic video. I think Ryan’s arrogant proclamation has begun to solidify the opposition to more GOPe hacks in the speaker’s chair. I called my supposed conservative R today to ask whom he supported for speaker. The dunce who answered the phone couldn’t say. I mentioned that he voted for Boehner. Then I told him I would be at the polls next year to vote for his democrap opponent, regardless of who that is. He had his chance and sold out. He’s GOPe now.

      It is very hard to get leverage over the GOPe short of threatening not to vote for them. Ryan’s victory here, with a very public demand that the freedom caucus and we wacko birds stand down, means trouble. We are marginalized within our own party and when Ryan does what we expect, passing TPP and a CR on the budget, we have nowhere to go except third party. Trump is nice, but he ultimately needs to start a third party.

    Here’s is what John Boehner would love to say to all of us.

    “Dear little people. I am John Boehner. I am part of the group that rules you. You think you are free but you are not. I and my friends control your taxes, the rules on what you say and do, how you work, what your kids are taught, what you get paid, and the land you say is yours, until we say different. We aren’t afraid of you, just annoyed that you won’t lay down. It’s over. With Obamacare we now control your health. We control everything.

    Lay down.

    I know I’m leaving but I will be replaced with someone just like me. I’ll retire, take my government retirement money- which is far greater than you can earn- because I voted for it myself. I will have great health insurance because I decided you get Obamacare and all of us up here don’t. I, and my friends, voted that for ourselves over your complaints, because your complaints mean nothing.

    Hear me, just lay down.

    We will tell you who we decide comes into our nation. You cannot stop it. We will decide who must submit to the rule of law, and who is above the rule of law. Hint, it won’t be you.

    There is no hope, lay down.

    We will tell you who will be President, and if by chance you elect someone who fight us, we will destroy him too.

    So give up, be silent and lay down.

    I’ll go away, be given a job by some billion dollar company as a form of a payoff for being a good soldier. I will not be able to spend the money I have collected or will be given. You will continue to struggle, because we are your owners and we give you only what we think you deserve.

    You will struggle, you will tire, it will not matter that you know the truth, because the truth doesn’t matter. We control the truth, we control your children so we control the future.

    So all of you just lay down.

    I will go now. And yes, I will sleep well, because I long ago sold my soul, so my conscience will never plague me.”

    I can see this in his eyes, hear it in his voice. He is so tired of playing the game. The game he knows is rigged because he helped rig it.

    To him, I say this; Go away. Take your thirty pieces of silver. You may think you own us, but as long as we breath, we think, we dream, we stand, you will never own us.

    We will never lay down.

    You forget your rule depends on our good nature and our will. When our will changes.

    Your rule will end.

    PS- take Paul with you. We’ll choose our own leaders from now on.

    For all those who keep yelping, “but Trump is not a conservative”….”did you see what he said in the past”. Even if somehow there was validity to those statements, I would counter with…”doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is insanity”. Trump is the only choice we have.

    The second I heard Ryan would consider running for speaker I screamed noooooo. Now I really have to wonder about the Freedom Caucus getting Boehner removed and everyday on Hannity spewing we need conservative leaders to replace the RINOS betraying us. Suddenly they have to meet with Ryan for 2 days to discuss it and some even applauded him. Now I’m baffled beyond repair. The Tea party and Freedom caucus actually entertained the idea of this guy for speaker…. Whewww… knowing he’s worse than what they removed. Took me 2 seconds to decide so why are these patriots still considering him and meeting with him today after he demanded they do what he wants….. Whewwww… Has the Tea party lost it’s mojo or got lost on the way. We are lost in the forest at this rate.

    The TP Patriots really knocked a home run with this ad. Only Big Truth can counter the Big Lie and this is a perfect example of how that’s done. The GOPe just announced today that they’d going to bury Trump in a massive negative ad. campaign. Interestingly Trump, in one of this speeches last week casually mentioned that he has one billion budgeted for his campaign. I have a feeling he anticipated the GOPe boast and decided to up the ante. Trump also happily pointed out that he has actually spent very little on his campaign, buying no local or network advertising—basically just paying his overhead expenses—and yet he’s absolutely crushing everybody else in the polls. A one billion dollar campaign budget my be a huge (yuge . . .) bluff but it also signals that Trump is ready to go dollar-to-dollar with anybody who’s running campaign ads. against him. Once again, Trump is a step ahead of a group of opponents whose backers most definitely do not like being second guessed as easily as Trump is doing with them. GO TRUMP

    30 of the 40 voted to support him. Needing 4/5’s that means there could be 8 dissenters but there were ten which tecnically means they don’t endorse him. But 10 votes won’t stop Ryan and he has more than enough other votes. In other words the Freedom guys are doing the Boehner Kabuki dance to claim no full endorsement but almost full support…..We been had by the Tea Party……

    BTW, when is Paul Ryan up for election? Perhaps we voters can
    do to him what was done to Cantor. In Wisconsin, I think only
    the Madison area is rabid liberal. Milwaukee is a mixture of both
    and the rest of the state could vote conservative. There are also
    many manufacturing jobs in Wisconsin; those voters will not like

    Trust but verify. None of these people are your ‘friends.’ I am dismayed that they created this piece of propaganda. Not because I disagree with them, but because propaganda is ALWAYS used to sell an unpopular idea. It is ALWAYS used to sucker people into something. All it does for me watching this is make me think they have something up their sleeves that we haven’t seen yet.

    They are going to fold and endorse Ryan or some lesser vetted rino. Nothing is coming from the Benghazi committee because the FBI has confiscated and secreted away all of the evidence now. Now that they have ensured this, Biden stops all the fake taunting. The propaganda will now come from both left and right to tamp down the controversy. Everything is going according to their plan, even the drama has been planned out. There is no real struggle going on. I had hope momentarily, but all the signs have shown me that it is all just a ruse.

    It just reminds me of numerous insurance and other commercials which try so desperately to convince you that they ‘care about you’ and their customers are more important than anything. In every aspect of your life, you can be assured that whatever someone is boasting about, the reality is the opposite.

    It may seem cynical, but being cynical has been my secret to success. I cannot tell you how many times people have spat at me thinking I am crazy only to be proven right after the fact. If only people weren’t so easily manipulated, we wouldn’t have to wait until afterwards to learn our lesson.

    So I sigh…. Trump may very well win, but unless WE change, nothing will change.

    Just enough to placate the people and tamp down revolt. And we all will fall back into complacency until the next 10 seconds of hate.

    But what do I know? I’m just crazy.

    Accepting his bid means they have accepted his application. It does not mean he got the job.

    No endorsement means you don’t have the position

    Someone is telling the truth and someone is telling the lie. As usual, the drive-bys are going with the lie.
