Donald Trump Gets A Political Endorsement He Did Not Want, Need or Request…

Today, writing an article in gazettextra, House Speaker Paul Ryan endorsed candidate Donald Trump. You can read the article HERE.

trump lg headshotPaul RyanMuch will be made of the endorsement and change of position for Paul Ryan, but something should be emphasized the MSM will overlook: Donald Trump is ambivalent to this endorsement.

Donald Trump has repeatedly said he did not want -nor need- Ryan to endorse him.

The reasoning is quite simple and can be found in a short section of Ryan’s article published today where he describes some of the conversation between Trump and himself:

“the House policy agenda has been the main focus of our dialogue”

Candidate Donald Trump DOES NOT support “the house policy agenda“; he never will. Ryan’s agenda is the legislative priority list of Wall Street and the K-Street lobbyists who are funding his house membership. Donald Trump’s entire campaign approach is directly in opposition to Ryan’s Wall Street agenda and both he and Ryan accept that.

Unfortunately for Ryan, and very fortunately for America, Trump’s position is the winning position. That’s why Ryan has to move now to try to remain relevant to the future platform. Ryan is trying to save his Wall Street Legislative priority list.

Nothing more.

    Ryan waited to see who Kristol’s 3rd Party candidate is. He realized that the whole thing was a failure, and then endorsed Trump. He is a disloyal, scheming career politician.

      No. The SoB is responsible for anything/everything that comes out of the House. His endorsement means squat, which is why they kept pushing it. What matters is whether he produces what Trump says he wants.

      The little brat (no offense to the VA rep) needs to be primaried.

      You really have to read all of the op ed piece in the Janesville Gazette. In the first place, the current Republican Congressional agenda is in-line with the Democrat agenda and nearly opposite to the policy agenda Trump is running on, I find it very strange that Ryan would insinuate that Trump is going to get on board THAT particular train.

      Now, maybe the Donald is the greatest Manchurian Candidate since Barak Obama and actually totally supports government sponsored health care, amnesty for illegal aliens, free trade and open borders but I think absolutely not. Trump is running on a platform in direct opposition to Ryan’s and the GOP elite’s policies. So, it is unclear what the purpose of this op-ed piece actually was except to make it look like he is on the Trump train so he can assure his reelection to Congress. BTW, Ryan is not available to work on weekends.

        Perhaps, the next card in Ryan’s badly worn deck of cards is to override Trump’s veto of laws Trump would abhor. To this end, he would need the combined support of the RINO troupes in the House and Senate and Pelosi’s and Schumer DemonRats (assuming Schumer is the next Senate’s minority leader) . We, the voters, some arrows in our collective quiver:
        1) To primary Ryan in Winsconsin disctrict 1 in November 2016.
        2) To kick out, in 2018, every single House and Senate RINO who chooses to play the veto game.

    Okay, this is where I get lost. I am looking forward to a Trump Presidency, however, I don’t see the value of a Ryan defeat in the primary over the value of a Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s endorsement. Ryan’s views are not diametrically opposed to Donald Trump’s views. Ryan is not in a safe (for Republican) district so his defeat would not guarantee a win by a Republican Freshman Representative. Oh well.
    However, Ryan is well thought of on Capital Hill and is likely to be Speaker of the House again. The House of Representatives votes for the speaker he isn’t named by the President. Ryan has some conservative issues that a President Trump would likely help him pass. These issues are already in the form of bills. Ryan spent several years as a staffer and knows how to put these ideas into legislative language. He could help Trump put his ideas into legislative language as well.
    By the way, I am not talking about globalist ideas. For instance, it is next to impossible for people that have been on welfare for a number of years to transition to work. It costs money to accept a job with new transportation needs, child care needs, wardrobe etc. Presently, welfare is immediately cut off when a person accepts a job. Ryan’s bill could change that and make the transition gradual and more realistic.
    I believe that these two men can find common ground on a number of issues and . . . .well MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

        Singtune, maybe I am a fool. This is the one point that I disagree with my CTH friends. I don’t see why it would be an advantage to replace Ryan with a freshman Representative, be he a (D) or a (R). I think that Donald can work with Ryan. I believe that they can be great allies. the alternative to Ryan as Speaker of the House is uhm. . . . Idunno. That is not good strategy! That isn’t even strategy. Don’t underestimate Trumps ability to negotiate deals with a Speaker of the House that has endorsed him. Trump can make this work!

          All politicians need to be expendable. It’s what keeps them beholden to the voters. There should always be the possibility that they won’t be reelected, and Ryan is way past his sell by date. There are at least 30 people who could be effective as Speaker, they just don’t fit the mold the media wants to cram them into. I say this as a person who lives in Wisconsin.

          Ryan is a globalist. The globalist vision is for open immigration everywhere in the West (from everywhere else) until European-heritage people are a tiny minority in what used to be their countries. Look how many unassimilating 3rd-worlders are coming into our lands now. Forecast this out, year after year after year, without end. There is no shortage of these people, because unlike Western nations, they have insanely high birth rates. (seven in Nigeria, for example) What does the end look like? Our national peoples will not survive.

          . The end result will be the destruction of European-heritage cultures. Americans, with the strongest tradition of giving more than lip service to notions of liberty and self-governance, are target number one. They want our children going to school with large numbers of 3rd-worlders whose cultures have ZERO experience with real liberty, self-governance, or freedom so that our children absorb as much of their culture as possible at the expense of our own. Top that up with Common Core multiculturalism (Europeans are uniquely evil). What kind of fools allow their enemies to educate their children?

          If you think that America, Poland, Germany, and the rest of the European cultures are worth preserving, then globalists are an implacable enemy. They want us destroyed and we don’t want to be destroyed. There is no middle ground. There is no compromise with these people. The globalists OWN both parties (pre-Trump) so Ryan being a Republican means absolutely nothing. Ryan isn’t simply an opportunist going with the winner. He is a true believer in internationalism just like the old Communists.

      Olive, while I appreciate your hopes, my take is that Trump will ALLOW Ryan to participate WITH HIM on some policy issues on which they can agree, and give Ryan just enough leeway that he can think that he is in charge, but Trump will let him know, on the issues that matter most (wall, immigration, TPP, etc.) that Ryan’s agenda is not the one that will move forward. Trump will do enough collaboration to let Ryan save face, but he will neuter him on those issues that are globalist and NOT America First.

      Knowing that Ryan is a pro-illegal globalist, why do you trust him? Many Republicans do some good things. They do just enough to keep us confused so we’ll keep voting for them. Then they pull the wool over our eyes when, darn it, they “tried” to stop that major, sovereignty-killing bill, but they just couldn’t quite get it done. John McCain has been doing this for years. These people need to be purged from our government, in my opinion.

      Good questions, Paul. Any endorsement of the Uniparty at this point in time is suspect to me. If I were Trump, I would take this endorsement with great caution and make clear to the voters that he and Ryan are not in lock step on the one main issue driving Trump’s campaign and that’s immigration. There is no way Ryan wants to build a wall nor deport illegals. What is the compromise?

          I hope you are right singtune. I remember a time that I really was impressed with Ryan, Cantor and Lee during the first few months of the Obama administration. Slowly, but surely, Ryan became one of the establishment tools and having been selected by Romney to help reelect Obama I have had no use for him ever since. His comments about Trump’s candidacy has also been offensive. The proof will be in the pudding as they say, but for now I am highly skeptical of anything Ryan says positive about Trump.

He wants to imply that Trump moved to the center/left to accommodate the establishment. Trump needs to speak loudly that this is not the case. I consider an endorsement by Ryan, McConnell and many other members of the Rep. establishment to be the kiss of death for Trump.

      Went looking, and here’s the quote from Breitbart: “I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people’s lives,” Ryan said in an op-ed in his hometown paper. “That’s why I’ll be voting for him this fall.”

      That does not sound like an endorsement to me. It’s even weaker than Santorum’s support of Rubio.

      The news in my area said that Trump would not change his policies to suit Ryan, and that was the reason for the tone of Ryan’s comment.

    I don’t trust Ryan – he had a reason(s) for “endorsing” Trump today. However, it did pop the air out of the balloon in two ways today with the media. First, for days, the media has been running the narrative of “Can the GOP unite behind Trump.” This was all over TV today on all the stations, non-stop. Second, it was a distraction to Hillary’s “great” speech today. Again, it was non-stop this morning about her upcoming speech. After Ryan’s endorsement, the air was let out of the tire and the media looked deflated. These are my observations of what has transpired this week and today.
