Unreal – Paul Ryan Schedules Party Leadership Fundraiser at Home of Anti-Trump Super-PAC Donor…

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is heading up a National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) fundraiser in New York on April 25th.   However, the venue of the fundraiser is raising some eyebrows:

ricketts family 1

For those who might not know, the “Ricketts Family” are the primary donors to a Super-PAC specifically created to block Donald Trump from winning the GOP nomination.

Billionaire family Joe and Marlene Ricketts, owners of the Chicago Cubs, have recently given $5,000,000.oo to Katie Packer who heads “Our Principles PAC“, an organization created exclusively to defeat Donald Trump.

Katie Packer recently outlined what they are doing with the Ricketts money:

Moving forward, Our Principles PAC is organizing delegates and deploying a number of tactics with a goal of depriving Trump of as many delegates as possible in upcoming contests. OPP will focus on delegate wins, not individual state wins.

In addition, OPP will focus on states/districts electing unbound delegates to ensure those delegates are not supporting Trump on a first ballot and tracking candidates running for delegate in upcoming conventions to ensure that even if delegates are bound to Trump on early ballots, they move away on subsequent ballots. (link)

For Speaker Ryan to be heading up a fundraiser in the home of Donald Trump’s primary financial opponent/antagonist speaks volumes to the intent of the Republican Party when it comes to a unity approach.  This is not being tone-deaf, this is transparently by design.

Back in 2008 the term “PUMA” was coined due to party shenanigans and insider manipulative efforts intended to block voices within the Democrat party.  PUMA stand for “Party Unity My Ass“.

The message being sent by Paul Ryan is clearly one of antagonism toward Mr. Trump as the frontrunner of the Republican party.  In addition, it is not a leap to see how this may be correctly perceived as Ryan positioning himself to be the nominee if Donald Trump can be successfully blocked at the republican party convention.

This is quite a significant poke in the eye.

Paul Ryan

My suggestion would be for Donald Trump to purchase tickets for the dinner and either attend himself, or send his people to represent his interests and see what exactly the discussion and establishment intent/tone therein consists of.

New York Congressman Chris Collins, who endorsed Trump, is also listed as a party attendee.

    I am amazed at how sanguine the so-called “Conservatives” are about the buying of the election by the donor class billionaires. They don’t care who is elected; just that it isn’t Donald Trump. The means don’t matter. Dirty tricks don’t matter. And they have no real loyalty to Cruz, either. “Conservative” forums are full of them. They are the real lo-fos – very little knowledge and most don’t want to know. And they think the Trump supporters are the Koolaid drinkers.

      It’s no surprise Lulu, the gaslighting red state media is turned up to “high” right now.

      The fathead repukes like Limbaugh and eryklson are blowing at full steam to convince anyone who will listen this is all “on the up and up” as far “rules” are concerned and lyin ted is just the lucky recipient, but the same BIG OUTSIDER as Trump.

      It’s a well crafted lie that is targeted at the same people who have believed for years that this uni-party nonsense of “he said she said” “it’s all THEIR FAULT” business which keeps the sheeple distracted that these aren’t really just two sides of the same shyte filled coin of big government globalist elites.

      If you don’t believe me, realize every time there is a “war on terror” spending increase THERE IS ALSO a domestic spending increase included to match.

    • As soon as I saw the tweet from the Colorado GOP: “We did it, #Never Trump”, I knew that the “fix” was in last August. That’s why they changed the process. The whole delegation agreed that Trump would get no delegates, no matter what. Even if Trump had gone to “ground” in Colorado, he would have gotten zero, zip, nada delegates. Even the ballot was tampered with to exclude anyone who supported Trump. But be patient, my friends, the next two weeks will change everything.

      Where was Ryan for the past 2 years as ISIL was destroying the ME? And just who stopped him and rest of Congress to actually do something instead of OPENLY ALLOWING State Department to light up ME. And supporting ISIL both financially and with arms, those so called “rebels” in Syria are just a different name for ISIL.

      Just like with HusseinCare, GOPee say they want to destroy it while supporting it with both hands.

      Ryan is a FRAUD, a YUUUGE FRAUD to be precise. Just like Dirty Harry Reid and the rest of them, came to D.C. penniless and is now a multimillionaire. Just on tax payers’ salary?

        I couldn’t agree more, Riddick. I would suggest using “ISIS” (i.e. Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) instead of “ISIL” (i.e. Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant). The Levant is an approximate historical geographical term referring Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and ISRAEL.

        That is why Buraq Insane Obama likes to use “ISIL” in all of his Middle East statement.

          Really don’t care what Hussein wants to use. I love learning history, so to me and for me its always LEVANT, very old and historical reference, whether I like it or not. What we see now in ME is nothing but a UN mandated and UK executed ARTIFICIAL map. Levant also includes Greece, and depending on who defines it may also include Caucasus Mountains, Egypt, whatever, so what? TODAY its just a name for a terrorist group, who cares about political correctness. They will never be in Israel, let’s settle on that.

          We seem to be very erratic when calling certain groups arbitrary names. We supported MOSLEMS in our unjustified attack on Yugoslavia and called them “freedom fighters”, only because Billy Boy decided to he doesn’t like Christians. Demolished a once great country, cut it down to nothing in size and GAVE most of their their lands to invaders, actually FORCED Kosovo to declare independence. Do you recon we should still call these moslems terrorists “freedom fighters”? While calling Donbass people, HISTORICALLY ETHNIC RUSSIAN for at least the past 8 CENTURIES, “rebels” now? Only because Soros and Biden Jr.’s business interests decided they need those lands for fracking?

          That land was ALWAYS called Novorossia (Donbass region) and Malorossia (where Kiev is as well as Poltava, where Swedes met their eventual demise at the hands of RUSSIANS, extending all the way South to Crimea and Odessa). And yet you and others call it “Ukraine” today when no such word even existed before 1914 and only as a derivative from a RUSSIAN word OKRAINA, meaning “outskirts”, exactly what these lands used to be back then to vast Russian Empire.

          I’ll call it Levant, exactly what most of Europe used to call it for a long while. Whether the name implies Israel lands or not, and I am a Jew. A HISTORY LOVING Jew.

              Interesting, for sure. Lived in Israel when Yom Kippur War (1973) broke out. And was born in L’vov, LEMBERG actually, as it was and is still known in Europe. Part of Galicia, FOR CENTURIES, even though now part of so called “Ukraine” (thanks to Stalin). Something our D.C. Lyin’ Congress won’t tell you. Poles, actually, as we speak, are ramping up pressure to return all of that area back to Poland (even though it was really Austrian-Hungarian Empire for a long time), they are now in EU courts suing to take their properties back. We’re only at the beginning of a mess that’s called “Ukraine”. Watch it split into at least 3 countries, soon.

              That said, I do not play fast and loose with renaming things. You do still refer to Ottoman Empire as such, right? Even though that included a good portion of today’s Europe. You do use “Palestine”, even though no such thing ever existed and was a made up name by Romans so that they would not refer to “lowly” Jews. And then populated by Brittons by FORCEFULLY misplacing Arabs from lands in what is today’s Iraq while holding Jews in CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

              So why care if “Levant” used to refer to what is Israel, for the past 3,000 years now. Key words are “USED TO”.

              History is a great learning experience, in many ways.

    Trump is being generous and polite when he says our leaders are incompetent and stupid. It’s not that the GOP is the Stupid Party (as Sam Francis first said years ago).

    They know exactly what they are doing. They’re being evil and traitorous when they pretend to oppose policies their political class’s very lifestyles and portfolios require they support. The duplicitness is required because they know they cannot be elected if they were to announce they support policies that are good for them, but are at the direct expense of the voting public.

    Kasich will not say “I will win CT because I was and am a Wall Street guy and I represent the big capital class”. Hillary will never say “I bailed out the big banks before and I’ll gladly use the public’s money to do it again”. Oh no, it’s all about “I’ll break up the big banks” and other meaningless BigLie noise to assure the naive she is “fighting for the middle class”.

    Sarcasm ahead: I thought, that when Paul Ryan caved to pressure and accepted the Speakership, one of his demands was he couldn’t possibly carry out the fundraising duty that the Speaker usually does for the Party(NRCC) on the weekends.
    Ryan is such a slacker…now he is doing this fundraising on a Monday(4-25). I guess he is faithful to his word about how important quality family time is on weekends.
    People need to recognize that the National Republican Congressional Committee funds raised at this or any event(or online) will be used the same way National Republican funds, and state, district and county party funds are and will be used-for the approved party insiders. They will be used to defeat any conservatives, and candidates they can’t control.

    Once Trump wins in November its time to rebuild. We’ll have 3 years to start a new party so that by 2020 we can have a Trump led party in elections.

    GOPe these days is what, roughly 30% of voters? Seems that roughly 60% of that is Trump Brigade, cutting down GOPe to roughly 12-14% of electorate, at best? Start with the roughly 16-18% right there, add a good chunk of independent votes and hopefully some blue dems and you are right there as the leading party come 2020 cycle. We should be able to get to 35% or more rather easily by then making us a major party. I’d say, we should be reaching into low 40s, percentage wise. In the 2020 cycle, identify all worthy candidates, we’ll have 3 years head start on that, and replace ALL of GOPe in one fell swoop down the line, both sides of Congress. Repeat with leftover Senators in 2022 and 2024 cycles (although they WILL play nice in their remaining terms in hopes of being re-elected).

    Whig the GOPe, make them irrelevant, let them do their CO fraud, TX and OH fraud, WI circus, etc, etc, etc… Let Uniparty die off.

  15. Trump has been giving information at his rallies about the number of manufacturing job loss in Wisconsin and NY since 1997. Isn’t it interesting that Mr. Fiscal “Conservative” has been in the House since 1998 and America has never heard a word out of him until he ran as Romney’s VP, and lets not forget how Biden mopped the floor up with him. Where was Mr. Fiscal “Conservative” during the Dotcom and/or Freddie Mac Fannie Mae disasters? He was no where to be found as he was behind the scenes helping feed the government beast. There’s a reason why Congress acts like Ryan is the second coming.

    USA Numbers gives Paul Ryan an F. What is it with these politicians who once they are in office they all of a sudden have an epiphany to give away American taxpayer money to everyone else, but of course not before they take their share. Ryan’s time in government is up and it’s time to get rid of him for good. Trump winning Ryan’s county is a good sign.

For months, BB had created a niche as one of the only new sources to not be openly anti-Trump, and truly be fair and balanced. Looking back, I believe this was a tactic to build a massive audience of Trump supporters, that they could then attempt to dishearten, discourage, demoralize, and try to convert to Cruz supporters. Mercer, one of the major pro-Cruz PAC donors, is a BB owner, and I think had this in the works for some time. The good thing about BB was never so much the articles, but the comment section, which is where I found out about the Treehouse!
