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:

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:

      Joyful Noise, sad to say but I have been calling it the uniparty or 2 parties in 1 for a very long time as it was obvious that they did not want nor like Trump and his backing WE the PEOPLE and America because it would mean less money in their pockets and together a wee bit more power to screw America and its citizens royally. We complained we didn’t want Ryan but again were unheard. Time to move more quickly now to Drain the Congress Swamp and remove the traitors to us and our country. They are employees and not our rulers and many of us are sick and tired of their antics in thinking they have power we never granted them. This election must be underlined as important and not allow any re-election candidates who already have 2 terms and start now seeking out real patriotic candidates and advise them what they can and cannot due or will be removed immediately as we the People are the Government and they are merely our workers to respect and keep America free and moving forward and that means liking and supporting OUR President and not someone else. Tired of these supposed representatives making themselves rich by treason!

      Then we need, NEED to research, vet and work for Trump agenda supporting/MAGA primary candidates. This is all about personal responsibility – taking action for the things we want to see happen. The GOP will NOT give us this! We have to make it happen.

      Who are each of us supporting in our district primaries? For US Representative? For US Senator if yours is up for re-election this year? For state Rep? For State Senate? For school board?

      If we don’t know the name and why off the top of our heads for each or at least the top several positions because we are not involved and/or have not used our keyboard warrior time to at least looked into and research the primary candidates then That is a BIG part of the reason we don’t have what we want on the ballot when it is time to vote!

      If we don’t even know who is running or which is the best candidate then we need to lie down and accept the results of the primary and the GOPe candidates we have to vote for in order to have minimal support for President Trump.

      I worked passionately for our state senate special election – but FEW others were doing the same and FEW were informed on the issues. Why? Because literally only 20 or less came to the public meetings to question the candidates. NO ONE but me in the meetings I attended asked tough questions or ANY follow up questions when the candidates answered with fluff, empty politician talk. On EVERY question that I pressed on, the truth would come out and the candidate was revealed. But less than 20 voters out of a county of 33K total population/18K registered voters heard the truth admitted in this public meetings — because they chose to not be there!

      I made hundreds and hundreds of calls with no script provided from a campaign or a phone bank or an automatic program. Did I do a great job? No, even by the last phone call I still got nervous and tongue tied. The script I developed wasn’t all that great either and I wished I had changed up the talking points sooner as I realized other points would have been more effective. I am still learning as I have only been active since primary of ’16. But I was out there swinging until 1 hr before the polls closed. (Not bragging at all – trying to get others involved and MOVING.) What I found the most? Uninformed and Unaware – on the issues and many that there was even an election happening!!!!

      I guess I am a little fired up on this issue because of our own local loss to the GOPe and because so few were working in this primary or even aware. Now, a RINO has a political career begun and sits up in Nashville to vote for TN illegal immigrants and all things GOPe. I fought hard because I saw this race as directly about the GOPe, Corker, Haslam and the GOPe in the Gov and Senatorial races coming up here in TN.

      At minimum, find out who is running in the primaries and share on social media who is the MAGA candidate for Congress.

            According to my conservative family members in Cali, it is too late and there’s no possible way conservatives will ever take back the state. The only solution now is to split the state, but they’re cautious of the risks in that. They contend there are too many questionable counties being included in the New California proposal and when the Left takes over that as well, as it surely will in time, the US will have two more dem senators and a bunch of dem house members to contend with, which will tip the balance of the US permanently Left.

        There was even a poster here (that many followed) that jumped on me for not believing Ryan had miraculously changed to a Trump supporter! Just a couple months back!

        Now it is past time to work, for the sake of the future.
        But we are too late to get MAGA candidates into every state and district before November 2018.

        (Not saying we should not try, just saying not to be disappointed that it takes more work than a few months to turn around these NEAR 60 YEARS, long-time deep-rooted RINOs.)

        instated by Rockefeller IN 1960!!! in Nixon’s campaign era, see here:

        Do Party Platforms Really Matter? — July 2008 Phyllis Schlafly Report

        http://eagleforum.org/psr/2008/july08/psrjuly08.html
        Read the whole thing!

        “Rockefeller was the head of the New York, liberal, Big-Government, internationalist wing of the Republican Party that supported foreign and domestic policies similar to those of the Democrats, and whose me-too candidates had led Republicans down to defeat again and again.”

        REPEAT words of Schaffly^: for emphasis, the very DEFINITION of Uniparty/RINO
        ROCKEFELLER backed
        INTERNATIONALIST (globalist)
        LIBERAL (leftist)
        SUPPORTED POLICIES (of)DEMOCRATS
        LED REPUBS TO DEFEAT AGAIN & AGAIN

        RINOS have been digging in to Republican party for 58 YEARS. We think we can remove them with almost no effort on our parts in a few months?

        Why did DJT run as REPUBLICAN? He knows that this happened.

        He knows REP party platform has to be taken BACK from DEMS/RINOs/UNIparty. (Redundant but needed: they are the same thing.)
        Until TRUMP starts a MAGA party, we must stay with his chosen party.
        Maybe he will do so, maybe he will change REPUB PLATFORM to MAGA PLATFORM, and the name-change might come later. The NAME not as important as the PLATFORM!

        And when those of us who said “get busy” earlier were told “too early”???
        1960 would not have been “too early!!!”

        Our President has made changing this RINO/Rockefeller platform POSSIBLE.
        But if you think it easy, or brief, think again. Teach your child and grandchild for the longhaul.

        We MUST support POTUS.
        He says he needs MORE REPUBLICANS.
        So do that now.

        And then keep working on PLATFORM. Get any MAGA’s on to the platform committee ASAP.

Please note this and be aware that Pence is NOT the envisioned successor to Trump in case of impeachment. please take a look at what really happens. everyone has forgotten how these supposedly improvised process games put unelected Rockefeller so near the Oval Office. My opinion of the plan: Pence out, Romney in as VP, Trump out, Romney up to P, and some “Unity” candidate in as VP, possibly an actual Donkey on grounds of the tumult the country no doubt will have been engaged in. Love and kisses from the NYT and the WaPo and Silicon Valley and the EU! Some Rockefeller equivalent. Someone who cannot win an election but represents the summit of uniparty hopes and dreams.

            Spiro Agnew was as crooked as the day was long. Just like Richard Nixon, Agnew resigned in disgrace in return for not being impeached and prosecuted for his crimes.

            From Wikipedia:

            “Beginning in early 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on suspicion of conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew had accepted payments from contractors during his time as a Maryland official, and the payments had continued into his time as vice president. After denying his guilt for months, Agnew negotiated a plea agreement that would involve his resignation from office. On October 10, 1973, Agnew pled no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion, resigned his office, and was replaced by House Minority Leader Gerald Ford.”

              Quote from source listed below>
              But just when did the Democratic Party begin its slide down the road toward the Socialist/Communist ideology? It really began around 1944, when the six-time Socialist Party candidate for President stated:

              “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism,’ they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened…. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” <end quote

The bottom line is there needs to be coordinated mass calling tactics to these traitors office on a daily basis. Especially if you aren’t from their state where you can go in and talk person to person. If we could get 30 people to commit to making one call, one call to Rat Ryan,once every day for a week. If we could get the same for Mitch McConnel, even the libtard officials. Maybe just maybe it will pick up enough steam and other concerned citizens would flood these hacks offices with calls. We might be able to make a dent. Now you will probably get hung up on, told to call your local official. I don’t have a local official on the Senate Intel Committee. My representive is not speaker or Senate leader. These traitors have to know we know about their tactics and their behavior. If you took time to read this thank you. If you are wondering what can you do and want to do something please call these people. Flood their office, make their staff earn their money and let them know you know. Demand action. I honestly believe if we could get enough people dedicated to call repeatedly we can make a difference. Thank you all and God bless!

          http://elections.state.md.us/elections/2018/primary_candidates/gen_cand_lists_2018_1_ALL.html

          I didn’t check for Gov and other races, just your Congressman and Senator race. Depending demographics and probabilities might want to invest most of your time in one race or the other. I would think their websites would be the first stop, then their history (you have one guy running for Congress that has run in a number of past races as a Dem!), their background and then balance out with who has the best chance to make wise use of your time and resources.

          Just curious (and I don’t mean to sound rude) but had you already any time to look up who is running in your primaries? Did you already know these names or others? I took 15 min to look up who was running in your Congressional district and looked at each page (one of them was a pitiful story and a bit of a rabbit hole. Another guy seems very conservative and a nice guy but he doesn’t have “curb appeal” and his page has only had ~200 visitors so I didn’t mention him as we need to be wise about our time and money investments. Another seems very nice but has not bothered to take surveys for ranking groups and has no established web site – maybe he has a facebook page?). I took another 10 to look up the primary entrants for the Senate race.

          Seems so potentials to back without me putting that much effort into the search. Did you just assume there was no one to back and for whom to volunteer or have your really looked into each of these candidates? Are you actually involved with your local/state GOP? If you are depending on your local news you will not know what is going on in the GOP!

          Take a few minutes and figure out what is really happening in Maryland and you might be encouraged! and then you can tell others that there really are options and a hope for the GOP in Maryland!

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/powerpost/wp/2018/03/01/republican-super-pac-warns-democratic-voters-that-their-candidate-supports-gun-rights/

    The article states that Allegheny County is the only county they could confirm that Democrats were sent the flyer in question. The article also goes on to explain that this is not an unusual tactic for PACs for either side.

    Yes, President Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016 but Hillary carried Allegheny County by 16.4 points in 2016.

    I am not claiming that Sundance is wrong in his assessment nor am I saying this was a good tactic on the part of the Congressional Leadership Fund. I, personally, believe that all PACs should be done away with so that all ads and information is approved and sponsored by each candidate`s campaign.

    I am saying that drawing a conclusion from second and third hand information is not always a wise choice.

        PA Governor Wolf is a left scumbag and would look the other way. Not sure about the why on the other states. Frustration is mounting and patience is wearing thin for sure. But….I do think behind the scenes something is happening regarding voter fraud. Our President knows things about it and could be waiting for the right moment to expose it.

        There were a few instances published in 2014 or 2016 where touch pad machines were allocating the vote improperly. It was proven because of people taking screen-shots with their cell phones. It was attributed to “a screen calibration error”.

        States should be allowed to run their own elections. However, they should be required to use machines (like we use in upstate NY) that have a paper back-up that can be reliably audited, should alleged discrepancies arise.

        As someone that has taken computer programming courses, the integrity of the results of fully computerized machines is dependent solely on the integrity of the programmer(s). It is all to easy for example, to program a machine to throw every fourth vote to a (R) over to a (D). That was suspected of happening in a local race in Grand Island, NY a few years back. The person on the ballot chose not to challenge the outcome, however.

          In an honest election I should have to verify the log before the next voter can take their turn.

    So tired of hearing about Saccone being a lousy candidate, voter fraud, Uniparty, Ryan, ad nauseum. Also tired of hearing about how local elections are different than national elections. Bottom line: at this point, no matter who the Republican candidate is, voters who voted for Trump in 2016 need to vote for the Republican candidate. It’s that simple. Saying they support Trump but don’t support Saccone is actually working AGAINST Trump because if the Republicans lose the house, that is not a good thing AT ALL for Trump.

    Trump traveled to PA and made the case for Saccone. Voters needed to turnout in large numbers to support the candidate. Trump said that Saccone would support Trump on every issue. Anyone who thinks Lamb would actually support Trump is insane.

    This special election should not have turned out the way it did. And whether Lamb won by 0.5 points or 10 points, no matter, he still won and that should not have happened.

I think the objective wasn’t to elect the Dem (if that was actually the intention of a PAC who’s reason for existence is to increase Republicans in Congress, then it’s over; the Republic is lost), it was an attempt at psyops – to turn off more liberal Dems in the district by emphasizing their candidate’s supposedly pro-gun policies. In other words, they made a tactical calculation that it would damage Lamb more than help him, and outsmarted themselves. Idiots.

This wouldn’t be the first time they did such a mailing.This same super pac also sent mailers to Republican voters calling Conor Lamb an opponent of gun rights. The Washington Post, I believe, wrote an article about the mailers sent to Democratic voters and they were not happy about it because they were rightly worried that it would turn Democrats off of voting for Lamb.

    Rick Saccone should have kept his big mouth shut when it came to his support for right to work. After all, he was campaigning in an area that has a lot of union members. The last thing those union members want to hear, is someone who doesn’t favor the unions. That was political suicide. I’m not saying that he’s not entitled to his beliefs, but sometimes it’s better to look closely at your constituency and then weigh your words very carefully. That’s exactly what President Trump did and that’s why he did so well in the same area.

      Right-to-work is not an issue worth losing an election for. If constituents are vehemently opposed and distrust business will treat them fairly then step back and listen to them. After all, to be a representative means to represent the needs and desires of your constituents.

      As long as private sector unions have competition they cannot become too disruptive because doing so (pushing too hard at the bargaining table) could result in a loss of their own jobs due to the competition. It’s when unions have monopoly control over the supply of labor that they cause problems – just the same as when a large business has monopoly control over its market.

    Michels’ Iron law of oligarchy.
    Civil Service is a self-perpetuating oligarchy, the Iron Law of Oligarchy. Many writers believe that any political system eventually evolves into iron law of oligarchy. According to writers, Zulma Riley, Keith Riley, and Robert Michels, modern Democracy should be considered as elected Oligarchy. They called this called this theory the iron law of oligarchy. James Madison, the fourth President of the United States said: “Never fear. The iron law of oligarchy always obtains.”

    In iron law of oligarchy, actual differences between viable political rivals are small, the oligarchic elite impose strict limits on what constitutes an ‘acceptable’ and ‘respectable’ political position. Iron Law of Oligarchy was first defined by German sociologists like Robert Michels (1876-1936). Michels wondered if one could ever have what today is called participatory democracy. Michels discovered the Iron Law of Oligarchy, that even in the most egalatarian movements, elites will call most of the shots.

    Iron Law of Oligarchy refers to the inherent tendency of all complex organizations to develop a ruling clique of leaders with interests in the organization itself rather than in its official aims. They were conservative, seeking to preserve and enhance the organization and not to endanger it by any radical action.

    It became difficult for the mass membership to provide any effective counterweight to this professional, entrenched, leadership, the Iron Law of Oligarchy.

      Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people”:

      First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisors in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.

      Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.

      The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.

      Makes sense to me. From what I can gather over the past 20 years or so is that the 3 pillars of US policy are:

      1) Mass survalience
      2) Permanent war
      3) Illegal immigration

      Strong ‘wedge’ topics are allowed to fluctuate (drugs, trans, gay stuff, etc.) which gets both sides worked up into a lather. BUT what is not tolerated is anything that threatens the 3 pillars mentioned above.

    I am very busy today and haven’t had time to read the comments, but I have to say, this time I disagree. I’m definitely not a Ryan fan, but he wouldn’t do something like campaign for the Dems! He gambled on the anti-gun hysteria working against Lamb and depressing turnout for him. Didn’t work.Why? Like I said, the Dems are united and think like winners. Nothing matters until you win. Being able to depress turnout significantly on one issue only happens to Republicans, unfortunately; we’re the people who are so proud of ourselves when losing on principle….just like we’ve been doing in all these special elections. The Congressional Repubs turned out to be mostly phonies and liars, so we’re going to let the Dems take it all back. Once they get back in total power, you wait and see what they have in store. Corruption, oppression, political persecution beyond anything we’re ever seen. They will control our lives from the Cloud and DC and there won’t ever be a Repub who can do a damn thing about it. I’m sorry but I’m sick today, and also sick and tired and depressed. I can’t help it. Hopefully, something can lift my spirits soon. Have a good day, patriots.

    Word is POTUS will levee more tariffs and other trade penalties on China to get them to play fair. This will cause a GOP meltdown and their attacks against the President will be deafening and played 24×7 on every news station. Trump was the first Republican to win the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania in a generation mostly because of his FAIR trade policies. The GOP uprising against these very policies that won Trump the presidency should guarantee they lose the House in November. GOP tried to commit political suicide when they failed to repeal/replace Obamacare but they clung to life with the bullet lodged in their brain instead. This time it will be fatal. Very sad because it is totally avoidable if they would just follow Trump’s lead.

    Partly why our Founding Fathers originally created a hybrid democratic republic instead of a more “direct” democracy is they feared that, when factions are aligned with the majority, they tend to dominate and oppress the minority. A student of history, Madison believed that “pure” democracies tended to be turbulent, violent, and short-lived because they were particularly susceptible to the rise of factious majorities that usurp personal security and the rights of property.

    The Founding Fathers could not anticipate the “postmodern” means by which a factious MINORITY of elites would be able to dominate 21st century American democracy with very little effective check from majorities.

    The Founding Fathers were mostly elites, themselves – many were essentially American aristocrats – but is NOT true that they held the merchant classes and yeomanry in low regard. It is NOT true that they designed a republic to keep government out of the hands of the dirty, low-bred, savage, simpleminded rabble. If they had thought that way – and, again, they did NOT – it would be ironic anyway because . . . today’s Ruling Class pseudo-elites ruin everything they touch. The Ruling Class pseudo-elites are corrupt,philosophically dense, ruthless, constantly push the most filthy Cultural Marxism onto their “inferiors,” go out of their ways to actually import rabble into this country, and otherwise fall very, very short of the old aristocratic ideals.

      I think current events show the downside of not having an aristocratic class. The current European Nobility are neutered and do not have power, so I am not really talking about them. A better comparison would be the Saudi nobility.

      The traditional rule of the aristocracy was to defend and protect the lower classes (which yes, was often abused). Also they were raised to respect and promote the values of the country. If there is no aristocracy, another group will fill the void of the ruling class. In a liberal Republic like the US, which has no aristocracy, it is wealthy merchants and other wealthy individuals who fill this void. These folks will use their position to promote their interests. While aristocrats do this as well, aristocrats were also raised to respect the values and traditions of the country. Wealthy merchants and the such usually don’t have these traits and values. This is where we are today. Our elites only care about making themselves richer and actually despise the country and our values.

      What made early America so special was the non-aristocratic elite actually loved the country and our values. This is extremely rare.

      In my personal belief, there is absolutely nothing special about the US constitution, capitalism, free market, ect. It’s been copied elsewhere like South America and failed tremendously. It is the American PEOPLE that make the Constitution work. Once you accept that, you will see how globalism, adventurism, neoconservativism, mass immigration, libertarianism, progressivism, and absolute free trade and terrible ideas.
