Speaker Paul Ryan Interview With Fox News Sean Hannity – Feb 16th (Video) – “Two Undefined Budgets”…

Fox News host Sean Hannity had a sit down interview with Speaker Paul Ryan earlier, and the discussion content therein contains some critical information.

[*NOTE* Thank You to Fox News for taking suggestions to authorize and release download sharable content on social media via You Tube].

Paul RyanThe setting:  Firstly, no-one who has deep understanding of political constructs trusts Paul Ryan.  PERIOD.

This interview doesn’t change that valid and central truism one iota.  There are Trillions of dollars at stake.

Paul Ryan is setting up the groundwork in his preparation to orchestrate the financial legislative priorities of Tom Donohue, Wall Street and the U.S. CoC.   If you don’t grasp that basic foundation, you’ll be entirely lost for the remainder of the year.

That said, if we want to see how he plans to pull off the big con – we must discover his timeline.


We know after they lost the election to Donald Trump, the fallback position for Wall Street/CoC/Big GOPe, ie. “The Big Club”, was to construct the Ryan BAT Tax (Border Adjustment Tax), insert it into 2018 and then add new legislative income tax structures to shift tax burdens from Wall Street to Main Street (consumers and wage earnings).   The question is not “if”, but rather “how” and “when”.

We know Ryan’s GOPe has put Mulvaney in place to construct flexible Trump budgetary parameters;  this, I believe is an effort to trick President Trump on behalf of The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Donohue, McConnell and Ryan.  Again, this approach is just their traditional playbook.

The key to blocking them is to discover the technique and the timing.

In the interview, Ryan talks of “two budgets” this year; which makes sense because we are operating without a budget and the Omnibus spending authority expires on April 1st 2017.

However, two budget constructs also makes Ryan’s 2018 GOPe tax scheme easier to hide. We already know President Trump and Speaker Ryan are in disagreement over the BAT scheme.

♦ Budget #1 will most likely be the bridge to the beginning of fiscal year 2018 (Oct 1, 2017), because there is no fiscal year 2017 budget.   Ryan and Boehner’s $2 Trillion Omnibus only goes through March 31st 2017.  They need a spending bridge to cover the last six months; two fiscal quarters (April – June / July – Sept ’16).

However, Ryan also might be discussing Budget #1 as the first Trump Budget proposal.

The insufferable ‘let-me-read-you-a-list’ Sean Hannity never gets clarity on how Ryan is constructing this, because Hannity is always worried about his personal “muh conservative” talking points which don’t actually mean squat when you show up to CPAC and clap for Omnibus Ryan – but watch my show and buy my books…  I digress.

♦ Budget #2 will most likely be the FY 2018 budget which will include the toxic and manipulative tax reform aspects that GOPe will attempt to con the public on behalf of Donohue, Wall Street and the lobbyists paying for the legislative constructs.   Again, Hannity never gained any clarity.

What we do know is there will be two budgets, one of those budgets will most likely be a six month bridge, the other will be Fiscal Year 2018 and will have tax changes.  President Trump will be involved in at least one construct. President Trump might be proposing one or both (most likely just one).

Hopefully, Trump is not constructing the bridge budget (6 months Apr-Sept), but is instead focused on Fiscal Year 2018 which would be the accurate budget for an incoming presidency to be accountable to focus on.  But watch out for Mulvaney/Ryan trickery here.

The missing six months (April to Sept ’17) is Ryan’s millstone to carry because he’s the short-sighted idiot that never ensured a fiscal year 2017 budget was passed.

Here’s the interview in two segments:

    SD you are so well versed in all things related to the CoC and the GOPe. President Trump acknowledged today that Obamacare had to be done first because of how the construct of the government works dealing with the budget timeline. He said that tax reform would be a lot easier to get done but needed to occur after Obamacare.

    The President has talked about the tax plan and how smoothly it is coming along. I think he has the right people to realize the game that the CoC and Ryan will try to accomplish.

    In the end, they will not get their way. This man knows their world and how it is all about Wall St over Main St. They will not win this battle!

        I do not think they will go Trumps way. I believe the wrath of the voters is the only way we are going to get this thing done. The winning strategy is to “vote them out”. Very seldom will the powerful give up that power voluntarily. Wall Street has the power and will not give it up until it is taken from their grasp. That is what Trump is trying to do. He has a chance as long as the people stick with him. His supporters must show no weakness. The real battle is beginning.

We simply can’t sleep at the wheel now and in the future. And let’s not forget that not only does Trump have extensive experience dealing with slimeballs, he has an IQ of 156 he has been putting to practical use for 70 years. Just pray, fast, and do our duty, trusting in God who wills the best for His creatures.

        I agree in principle, Pam, but the reality is that “the voters” elected Rat Ryan to another six-year term last August — even when he was being a very public a**hole toward Trump. There are constituent voters that elect or not elect incumbents, and then there is the nation of voters that all elected President Trump. To be precise, what power do “voters”, who live outside of Rat Ryan’s congressional district in Wisconsin, have over him? Sure, we can burn up his official phone line with calls, write emails, and write letters, but will that influence Rat Ryan?
        It will take a VERY broad-based and highly public effort to influence Rat Ryan and the rest of his corrupt GOPe cronies, who are in the pocket of Wall Street and scumbag Donahue of the COC.

        ‘or they will face the wrath of the voters.’ Apparently Ryan’s constituents have neither wrath, nor integrity. They had a golden opportunity last year to elect Paul Nehlen, and rid themselves, and the rest of the country of Ryan, and they refused to do it. All treachery committed by Ryan lays squarely on their shoulders. They own it. And God help me — I curse them for it.

      Must be that cocky smirk Ryan wears all the time that causes people to mistrust him, that and all the talking from both sides of his mouth.

      It was quite telling when President Trump did his Thank You rally in WI in December and Paul Ryan was booed. He was always booed are pre-election rallies, too. He needs to understand that he’s popular in his own mind. Of course, with Soros’ help, he was reelected but hopefully Wisconsin will wake up some day.

      A note on other Fox interviews: Why did Fox News hire Marie Harf, Obama’s lap dog that said we need to hold job fairs for ISIS as a contributor? Meghan McCain offers what? How abt Fox Business interviewing former HHS Secy Kathleen Sebelius this morning to get her thoughts on repealing Obamacare? Who cares what she thinks? We already know she’s against it. Why give Obama people opportunities to continue to slew his policies, the policies that got us in these messes? They are far Leftists. They belong at CNN, The View and MSNBC–or Tehran Evening News. If they need work, let them go work in one of Obama’s 250 rabble rousing, riot training offices operating to defeat President Trump’s agenda.

    If they can dismantle Obamacare in the first budget, that will have a huge economic impact along with the business deregulation they are quietly doing now…I have read there are six hundred billion plus in taxes associated with Obamacare and offering a stop gap no frills health plan for all,while isolating the massive increase in Medicaid is a good start….It should increase enrollment by stop gap purchasers, who can’t afford current premiums or pay fine…

    Ryan is all for the corporate tax cut,which the corporate goons at cheap labor commerce will be all in on…I think the border tax is a no go though…I have heard many congressmen against it and if Trump is, it won’t fly…Its an automatic increase on many goods before any exports materialize…

    The game changer for budget numbers would be the repatriated money from overseas…That could be three trillion and Trump wants 10% tax and possibly mandated private/public infrastructure spending with another chunk( airports,rail,dams,highways etc)

          Also for those cynical commenters above charging that Paul Ryan’s district voting system is rigged, I’d like to hear how many of them have been in the county clerks’ offices talking to elections officials about how the voting system works. I really would. Did any of you go deep into the weeks right after the Wisc primary and count editorials, mailers, radio and tv ads, letters to the editor, and other electioin metrics?

          If not, you are just guessing, and I’m not interested in reading your constantly repeated charges of RIGGING!.

    Ryan and McConnell need to be brought down. President Trump does not suffer fools and I have no doubt that he will take them out. There will be 2 budgets for all right, theirs and his for October. He is setting them up and getting the Obamacare repeal first and letting them think he will go along with their idea for the October budget. He will give them enough rope to hang themselves then he will expose their schemes.

  24. Finalage says:

    The BAT could be a good reform, if it helps eliminate the income tax in the end. Without question, a BAT flings the door open for a VAT. A VAT could either be an extra tax burden or it could used to completely eliminate the income tax and arrive even to a fair tax. The key is for the GOP to have the end goal in mind.

    Ideally, here’s the steps to a fair tax. BAT (eliminates corporate tax) to VAT (eliminates payroll and middle class income taxes) to Fair Tax (eliminates the rest of taxes).

    Ominously, a BAT could lead to a VAT tax layer on top of the existing tax structure to fuel more government spending and dependence. It would be a Democratic Party dream and would likely be coupled with a Carbon Tax without eliminating any income taxes. Worse, the Dems would undoubtedly campaign to reinstitute the corporate income tax!

    My advice to Trump would be to eliminate the payroll tax first with the BAT. That way, you could cut taxes for all the middle class and all businesses at the same time. Then cut corporate and investment taxes (include elimination of the death tax) as a supply side tax cut to boost the stock market and thus collect more revenue because of the booming stock market and business formation/expansion.

    After that is shown to work, if he must to arrive at a Fair Tax, institute a VAT and eliminate the rest of the middle income taxes and eliminate the rest of the investment and corporate taxes.

    When that proves successful, institute a Fair tax and eliminate upper income taxes. The Fair tax sets one national tax rate that everyone understands and eliminates all the complexity and invasion of privacy of the income tax system. If that is the end goal, I could support a BAT. Let’s see what happens but Trump should be petitioned on this by his supporters!

    | Paul Ryan has entered into a secret alliance between himself and other Establishment Republicans in the House as well as Nancy Pelosi and her activist brigade of Democrats. This alliance also extends to Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, and a mix of Senate Republicans and Democrats as well.

    The primary goal? Delay Donald Trump’s agenda. See the economy remain stagnant. Fill seats with moderate (spineless) Republicans come 2018, and declare the Trump agenda dead thereafter.

    The first evidence of this tactical delay on the part of Ryan to ensure nothing getting done remains the D.C. status-quo, is to declare almost all attention/energy/focus will be on dealing with “fixing” Obamacare.

    Pay attention to the wording. Watch “repeal and replace” become secondary to “fixing.” Ryan intends to initiate a patch-work approach that will take up a great deal of legislative time, receive significant media attention, but in the end, get little actually accomplished by of way of “repeal and replace.” In the meantime, the delay in such critical components of the Trump economic recover plan – namely sweeping tax reform, will be further delayed.

    In effect, Paul Ryan and his cadre of Establishment Republicans will do to Trump what they rarely appeared willing to do against Barack Obama – namely use the power of the legislature to contain a president’s agenda. |

      President Trump is a man who reads contracts for fun. He is well-known for paring contractor bills down to the bone.

      If Ryan thinks he can pull shenanigans, he is in for a very unpleasant surprise. The President will have no hesitation about calling him out. Same goes for Mulvaney.

      I am not a bit worried about this. Ye of little faith, please watch and see what happens.

    While I do believe it is highly important to watch Paul Ryan – it is just as important to watch Ryan’s hand picked successor Chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee – Kevin Brady (R-TX) 8th District. Brady is already playing a ‘tit-for-tat’ game with tax reform with a campaign promise that President Trump made to the Christian community. The Johnson Amendment (JA) – President Trump has stated he wants this eliminated and Brady is burying the JA within the committee’s tax reform bill, when the JA could be a stand-alone action.
    Sundance, can you do an in-depth analysis of US House Rep Kevin Brady?

    Another important issue, in my estimation is, – voter irregularities (fraud) investigated and exposed. This really needs to be done well before the next election cycle (2018) and the pressure to bear needs to be on the local precinct level, as well as the state. AG Sessions can appoint Kris Kobach to this assignment, with plenary powers to issue subpoenas, investigative interviews and offers of immunity. The career political class (swamp monsters), both R & D’s sweat these reforms.

    “The insufferable ‘let-me-read-you-a-list’ Sean Hannity”
    Ha – yes, that’s what I say all the time. He always has to list stuff over and over ad nauseam. Sigh……however, at least he’s proTrump and I think he’s on to Ryan also but not good with questions asked, etc. But then he has to worry about them coming back on his program. Ugh.

    It’s also discouraging to hear about Mulvaney. I don’t know anything about him but trust SD’s statements. Realistically, these kind of appointments are “concerning”. But I’m still trusting that God is behind it all and will somehow get it all straightened out and if Pres. Trump has been deceived with these appointments, that he will “fire” them in time to get his agenda moving/done in the near future.
    It may turn out in the end that these people needed to be in there in order to flush out more of the traitors for more to see and overdue actions done and/or for Pres. Trump to learn necessary “lessons” as he’s only human. He has said he didn’t know it was as bad as it is and surely that’s the case as he hasn’t been in this particular position before.

    • “He has said he didn’t know it was as bad as it is …” Yes, no matter how bad Hollywood and liberals and a few of our newer Treepers may think business people are, after you have dealt with them for decades, as Pres. Trump has, you are still surprised at how subtly evil, conniving, backstabbing, pernicious, and prevaricating people in government – at ALL levels are!


  36. I despise Ryan! I constantly attempt to encourage the House to fire him and replace him with an honest man!


  37. Founding Fathers Fan says:

    So called ‘conservatives’ in Wisconsin District 1 refused to do what was necessary to remove Ryan in his primary when he ran against a conservative (twice). There was less a 15% turnout in his last primary (down from less than 19% in his previous primary). The betrayed Our Republic by staying home. Not voting has consequences.

    Did you see this? This is something about that decision to use mulvaney with Ryan on the budget issues. Supposedly a brilliant move by Trump but I still don’t understand it.

    “That said, if we want to see how he plans to pull off the big con – we must discover his timeline.”

    Ha. “Big con.”

    That EXACTLY describes the work of Ryan / McConnell and, I’m starting to fear, Preibus.

    Ther is no one more vile and loathsome than the dirtbag open borders amnesty chamber of commerce crimnal Rat Ryan. The idiot voters who keep reelcting this scumball deserve to all lose their jobs to foreign workers, lose their medicare and social security like ryan wants to happen nationwide, and lose their ability to vote in elections like ryan wants illegal aliens to invade the country and take over. Ryan and the traitor donohue should be hung from trees and allowed to rot so that all americans can see the legacy if treason.

    Yikes, as much as you want to believe that spineless swamp creature Ryan, you gotta’ know he is ‘all talk and no action’! ‘They (congress) voted to build the wall in 2006, but the problem was obama’?? Damn Ryan is dumber than dumb.

    And, notice he said, ‘We finally have a President that AGREES with Congress’. B.S.! Congress needs to agree with President and get their collective butts in gear, and get on with President Trump’s agenda. Pronto!

    Thank you Sundance for sharing this information on the Treehouse.

    I cannot listen to Hannity. He is the ultimate most-boring low-brow I have ever had the misfortune to even try to listen to.


  47. TexasDude says:

    Not sure why Hannity get’s the treatment. He has been promoting Trump for quite some time. He may be a bit too much on repeating points and the like, but he appears very sincere and willing to do what he can to help Trump.
