UniParty At Work – Paul Ryan SuperPac Campaigned to Elect Democrat Conor Lamb…

It’s well known that Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan doesn’t want to be in an actual leadership position; and it’s also well known -enhanced by the campaign, and victory, of Donald Trump- that Republicans did not want to win the majority position and face having to reveal their true UniParty agenda.

The evidence of this UniParty positioning has been staring the electorate in the face, repeatedly and brutally, since candidate Donald Trump actually campaigned on key tenets of the Republican party and found himself being openly opposed by GOP leadership.

Now, a stunning discovery surfaces of Paul Ryan’s Congressional Leadership SuperPAC, congressionalleadershipfund.org, actually campaigning for the Democrat, Conor Lamb, in the recent PA18 congressional race.

As evidenced by Big League Politics the Paul Ryan SuperPAC sent a mailer to Pennsylvania CD-18 voters touting Lamb’s favorable position on gun ownership rights:

(link to source)

Now, there will be some who think this is just a bone-headed move by Paul Ryan because the Democrats already held a +50,000 registration advantage in the district and the SuperPAC didn’t know this mailer would actually end up supporting Lamb.  However, as mentioned, there’s a history here that tells us “a mistake” is likely not the case.

The real motive, based on an honest review of history, is the professional UniParty apparatus knew that Democrat Conor Lamb needed a lift to offset the cross party voting that was reflected in the district voting (by over 20 points) for Donald Trump in 2016.

The DC Republican apparatus is quite comfortable losing their majority position so long as they are not forced to support Trump policies which are entirely against their financial interests.  [How Mitch McConnell Crushed The Tea-Party]

Even before candidate Trump entered the 2016 presidential race, the agenda was visible for anyone who was willing to admit it.  In 2014 the same Republican leadership paid Democrats to vote against the Republican primary winner of the Mississippi Senate race (Cochran -vs- McDaniel) simply because Mitch McConnell didn’t like the idea of having an actual Republican in the seat.

Remember, this is the GOP wing of the UniParty who operate on behalf of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce {DEEP DIVE} and support: comprehensive immigration reform to include amnesty; lax border security to allow cheap labor; Omnibus spending as reflected in their Obama budget-fulfillment votes; the retention of ObamaCare as mandated by the U.S. CoC; the expansion of federal common core education standards; the Wall Street trade agenda to include TPP.  All of these “DC-Republican” positions are opposed by the current Republican President and the majority of Republican voters.

Enhancing and emphasizing my argument that this mailer as a deliberate effort to elect a Democrat, I would remind everyone of a few brutally obvious points: ♦the Republican controlled senate voted unanimously to block any Trump recess appointments (summer 2017); ♦and also the reality that both the House and Senate had no legislative constructs prepared for a Trump victory in January/February 2017; ♦and top off the cake of duplicity with the fact it was Republican controlled House and Senate committees who willingly opened ridiculous investigations against their own elected president claiming a ‘Vast Planetary Russian Collusion Conspiracy’.

In short, both Republicans and Democrats want the threat of Donald Trump removed.

There is no desire on the part of Paul Ryan/Kevin McCarthy or Mitch McConnell/John Cornyn to actually win seats in 2018.  These GOP “leaders” would just as soon lose their majority position so they can go back to the comfortable indulgences of remaining in leadership in the minority status.

In the minority the leadership of the GOP are no longer threatened by President Trump and can hide behind the smokescreen of loyal opposition.

Substantively nothing changes, and the GOP leaders are just as well compensated in the minority by the lobbyist industry within DC.

The only threat to the financial interests of the GOP is President Donald Trump remaining in office and having to actually face carrying out a conservative Trump agenda in 2019 and 2020.  That Trump agenda is entirely against their “establishment republican” interests.

The Paul Ryan mailer to elect a Democrat is just another example of how corrupt the entire UniParty political apparatus is within Washington DC.

That truism is entirely why this MAGA graphic, from 2015, remains accurate:

  4. When I heard Ryan say a couple of years ago that ‘America is bigger than its borders’ I knew he’s been fed a clever soundbite by the Tavistock Institute. Without borders, America ISN’T. No nation is. Borders are non-negotiable if you still want to have a nation-state. But remember, the globalists want financial districts (former nations stripped of legitimacy, sovereignty and centrally managed). EVERYBODY in power hates Trump. Except the Republicans have to rely on the Democrats to do the real dirty anti-Trump work. 

    https://news.un.org/en/story/2015/10/511282-interview-refugees-are-responsibility-world-proximity-doesnt-define

    This is an interview of the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General for International Migration, Peter Sutherland, 2015. This is the Plan that Ryan is covertly pushing NO LESS than Clinton or Obama. Translation? People who die for their country are chumps. Nationalists are cowards who hide behind borders:

    UN News Centre: What is your message to governments?

    Peter Sutherland: I will ask the governments to cooperate, to recognise that sovereignty is an illusion – that sovereignty is an absolute illusion that has to be put behind us. The days of hiding behind borders and fences are long gone. We have to work together and cooperate together to make a better world. And that means taking on some of the old shibboleths, taking on some of the old historic memories and images of our own country and recognising that we’re part of humankind.

    I’m thinking these machines flipping votes and people being turned away because of “confusion” over re-districting are being seriously looked into and something has been found.

        The PRIMARY functions of party machines is to VET candidates who will maintain the corrupt status quo and to make certain they are fully BOUGHT prior to the election via the FAR TOO LONG BY DESIGN election campaigns which require huge sums to conduct.

        Trump completely avoided both of those functions, so he must be hampered by leaks, phony scandals and accusations (in progress) and majority party inaction, neutered by losing his majority in CONgress (based upon this Ryan thing, apparently in progress), and somehow be prevented from being nominated and running again in 2020.

        Yes, Victoria, there IS a Uniparty, one with different constituencies – one is the favorite of collectivists and societal leeches, the other plays their phony opposition… until they’re in the majority and have the power to actually take action at which point their true allegiance becomes more obvious… and it isn’t the majority of their constituency.

    I take your point, Sundance, and have an additional take on the underlying phenomenology.

        My point is a lot of Trump voters voted for Lamb because they felt on matters key to them Lamb presented a better chance to hold the line for Trump issues than the Republican did.

        It’s a calculation. Accurate calculation or not is not my point. The point is they are calculating how best to keep Trump outlooks/issues alive. They like what Trump stands for and are looking for candidates they calculate will do that for them.

        It’s why they are choosing, not the accuracy or inaccuracy of their choice, that I see as very important. And that’s my point.

        And if I am right about that, then the voters are looking to sweep away the D-R UniParty, try as they may, hard as it is with just one vote, but they are trying. Both D and R voters. They like what Trump stands for and know UniParty stands against them. They are trying to get rid of the UniParty, hard as doing that is. Codevilla said years ago that they will find a way to do it and he was right about that.

        Remember, it’s not Trump personally. He said so, he is just the messenger and agent of a general will to off-load the tyrannical UniParty, the one who never gets punished for doing far worse than what they would give us life in solitary for doing if they could. And they are trying to get to being able to do that. Trying to avoid that fate, making calculations this way and that, whether accurate or not, is what I see in the vote pattern in PA-18.

          I’m not saying that you’re foolish enough to have believed and done what you say they did, but perhaps THEY were. If so, Trump will just be a minor road bump on the path to where we’re headed anyway, just thankfully more slowly with him than without him. I suspect the economy will peter out before 2020 – FAR too much debt, the rate of debt growth is going up AGAIN, the Fed is trying to unwind QE, and it’s been a record amount of time since the last recession. Of course, you know Trump will be blamed for that if it happens.

  9. What if all the opposition to Trump is just fear that he’s Toto and he’s about to draw attention to “the man behind the curtain?”

    The “elites” of the Western world have been manipulating things for decades. They now control the media, education, entertainment, most international businesses, both major US political parties, and most establishment parties in the West. Yet, if people weren’t being manipulated, would the general consensus be in favor of the system as it is, designed to benefit a narrow slice of the population, largely at the expense of everyone else?

    Perception is everything. Think about how much the world changed the morning of September 11, 2001. Suddenly we all felt a lot less secure. Similarly, when Toto pulls back the curtain on the Wizard of Oz, or when Darth Vader’s mask is removed, it’s shocking to see the weakness managing to project such strength.

    In real life, the Wizard of Oz would have operated from a vault, with immense security, but nonetheless the Wizard is an illusion. Trump is threatening to that illusion, an illusion that really could lift the wool on how greatly the elites have undermined democracy for many decades. In every single survey conducted across the Western world for six decades, the majority of the public have favored reduced levels of immigration. Yet, across the Western world, the will of the public has been ignored, and as societies are transformed, jobs are shipped overseas, and their cultural traditions are cast aside, those reluctant to embrace the fundamental transformation of society are told that’s evidence of their bigotry, rather than love for their homeland and heritage. In the EU, power has been transferred away from “elected” officials to an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels. In the US, we’ve increasingly ceased to be a Republic and instead have centralized power in DC, and we’ve done so by increasingly shifting power away from our elected representatives and towards unelected bureaucrats managing the many agencies creating all the rules and regulations that govern our daily lives.

    They’re terrified of the prospect that the curtain will be torn back. For decades, they’ve been able to ensure that no one came to power who threatened to reveal that the wizard is nothing but a weak old man, and Trump represents a truly existential threat to the continued dominance of the projection of power by those elites. They’re willing to do anything to stop it, even risking war with a nuclear superpower like Russia.

    I recognize there’s risk in pulling back the curtain, but the Wizard isn’t doing a good job, and he’s been selling out the rest of Oz for decades.

    For what it’s worth, shortly after Toto pulls back the curtain, revealing the actually weakness of the Wizard, Dorothy learns she’s been able to go home any time she wishes. She clicks her heals together, and the illusion falls away as she returns to the comfort of the world she was missing, repeating again, and again, “There’s no place like home.”

    The GOP doesn’t just want PDJT impeached as much as Democrats do, they want it more. The establishment GOP is more than willing to throw enough seats to put Democrats in the majority.

    There is no way to spin Ryan/Ricketts involvement here short of an all out civil war within the GOP. Primaries are the only way we will be able to secure PDJT for a second term, or even a full first term. The strategy is to take enough RINOs out through the primary process that we can convince the RINOs that remain in Congress to vote with PDJT.

    PDJT is doing all of the heavy lifting and he is vulnerable if the Democrats take the House. If we truly want to drain the swamp, we must support MAGA candidates in primaries and not rely on RINO lip service support.

    If Ryan supported Lamb, maybe we don’t support Ryan in the primary? Nehlen needs to make Ryan’s treachery an issue in the primary.

            I try to stay busy in school district affairs. We have a GOP governor and a good county executive, KIttleman. Yet PDJT needs help in Congress and he is not going to get it from MD. I would love to see Ben Carson run some day. I appreciate the heads up, I get down when I think that our own party is working against MAGA. Good to know we are not alone.

              Tony Campbell is African American – any chance with his candidacy? He seems pretty conservative. In the races for US Congress, even a candidate that is not 100% MAGA is better than a Democrat (although not what we would prefer).

They do not give them the respect or listen to them to consider them as contenders. A good friend of mine is a black conservative in North Carolina and is a radio and TV host, but he has had no luck making traction against liberal blacks. He told me that black liberals would listen to a white conservative before him because he’s seen as a traitor. It’s much harder for them to reach other black politically because they aren’t trusted.

      American Mongrel voting for a Democrat, no matter how they’re marketted, is voting for the Democrat Party and against Trumps agenda. It undermines his ability to drain the Swamp so elections are free and fair. It means you are voting to put the party that sat through the entire SOTU address back in charge. It means ZERO of Trumps bills will be passed. It means Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters take control of all committees. Decent guys like Nunes will be OUT. It means impeachment will begin and continue until it succeeds or they lose control of Congress. A vote for ANY Democrat rewards the party that has endorsed and fueled hate, division and violence for the past 2 years and punishes the party lead by Trump who wants love, healing, safety and prosperity for all. Right now and until Trump finishes cleaning up the Swamp a vote for any individual Democrat is a vote for the totally corrupt, vicious, Leftist National Democrat Party to take over control. As usual, Democrats are relying on the stupidity of voters. They are happy to lie to get back in power. They’ve also recruited alot of CIA operatives and veterans to run as Democrats thinking that will trick the voters as well. It’s very sad that people don’t get that to save this country Trump needs to MAGA which means ALL Democrats must be defeated. A final reality check, the DNC is run by total Leftists and racists. They have not dealt with their corruption in fact they just said in court they have a 1st Ammendment Right to rig primaries! No truly decent person is allowed to run as a Democrat within this system.

    Only one way to see this, the mainstream Republican Party is continuing their agenda to minimize Trump, especially after he threatened their cash cows with his Fair Trade initiative. Trump is essentially being tag teamed; selectively McConnell will scuttle Senate Races and Ryan will scuttle house races as needed…all with RNC support. Its looking more and more like a one and done for Trump if he makes it to 2020. Trump is brave guy but even he has to consider his health and whatever will remain of his personal life after Mueller is finished.

    There is an excellent comment above discussing how the Republicans want to resort back to be the “40% minority” for financial and career purposes. To be honest, the Democrats are happy with that situation as well because I believe their favored model of government is the “Obama cell phone and pen” rule by executive order, with NO federal budget bills being passed. Its essentially an elected fascist dictatorship, with a congressional façade that can be used to look good to the lemming masses when needed.

    Hats off to SD for all his investigative work but there is just too damn much data in public at this point in time to be ignored by DoJ and for Mueller not have been shown the door. I fear Trump is about to be given an offer he can’t refuse if he wants even a shred of his personal life to remain.

    Hats off to Trump for continuing to govern so effectively in the face of the nearly overwhelming opposition from the DC Swamp, International Financiers and 95% of the media. This guy is truly amazing and I hope he has a miracle stored up somewhere to win the day.

    I really do hope that I am wrong but the evidence to the contrary is beginning to pile up way too high.

Even if odious, a Republican majority allows patriots for the people to retain control of important committee s and allows POTUS to pressure the political hacks who campaigned on supporting him. Democrats can’t be pressured because they’re running on resist, obstruct, impeach.

    Exactly right. This ^ isn’t working.
    It is my opinion that “political parties” should be dissolved now because of the continued subversion of our Constitution.
    No political parties means that representatives of the people would ipso facto be Constitutionalists. The Constitution would be the vetting tool for any government employment and policy; all else would not gain a foothold since all decisions would be constrained within the laws of the Constitution. Think of the swamp dross that would dry up in the drought that would happen as a consequence.
    By reestablishing our Constitutional Republic as “a movement” with no political parties at all, the United States of America would indeed be One Nation just like our POTUS wants it to be. And note that President Trump proved through his election that a “movement” of the people is real.

    UNI-PARTY:

    “The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”

    Quote from Tragedy and Hope, 1966 by Carroll Quigley, member of Council on Foreign Relations, mentor to Bill Clinton.

    An excellent but lengthy description of America’s Ruling Class from Angelo M. Codevilla (2010)

    …Never has there been so little diversity within America’s upper crust. Always, in America as elsewhere, some people have been wealthier and more powerful than others. But until our own time America’s upper crust was a mixture of people who had gained prominence in a variety of ways….

    Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money…

    The two classes have less in common culturally, dislike each other more, and embody ways of life more different from one another than did the 19th century’s Northerners and Southerners — nearly all of whom, as Lincoln reminded them, “prayed to the same God.” By contrast, while most Americans pray to the God “who created and doth sustain us,” our ruling class prays to itself as “saviors of the planet” and improvers of humanity. Our classes’ clash is over “whose country” America is…

    Ryan’s wife Janna is a super lib!

    Janna Ryan, whose maiden name was Little, grew up in Madill, Oklahoma. Both of her parents spent their careers as successful lawyers in private practice.
    A town in Oklahoma, Little City, is named after her family. Like her parents, Janna has a law degree, having graduated from George Washington in 1998.
    Her family has strong political – and Democratic – connections; Her uncle, David Boren, served as a Democratic governor of Oklahoma and later as its U.S. senator.
    Boren’s son, Dan Boren, is Janna’s cousin and a member of House of Representatives. A Blue Dog Democrat, he has often voted across party lines.
    Before marrying Paul, Janna was a Washington operative herself, forging an early professional career as a congressional aide and healthcare lobbyist.
    Friends describe her as being able to navigate between different worlds – from small-town Oklahoma, where she’s from, to prestigious Wellesley College and to D.C., where she is well-versed in complex policy debates.
    “She is very comfortable in and around politics. She grew up in a political family, and it comes very naturally to her,” said Leslie Belcher, a Washington lobbyist who worked on Capitol Hill with Ryan and was later one of Ryan’s bridesmaids.

    1. This is not “Paul Ryan’s super PAC”. It’s endorsed by Ryan but he did not start it.
    2. CLF ran 8 different TV ads to promote Rick Saccone.
    3. CLF sent a mailer to DEMOCRAT households saying that Lamb was pro-gun — to suppress the D vote for Lamb.
    4. CLF spent $4 million on that race to help Rick Saccone.
    Please do your research. It’s not helpful to spread these conspiracy theories.

    In looking back and reading all the articles I could find I have to agree that I am not certain as to the CLF motive in this particular race.
