Paul Ryan & the GOP against Donald Trump
It seems as if everyone is against Donald Trump securing the nomination for President, with the Republican Party as his biggest opponents. The Republican National Committee recently hinted and leaked stories to the media about a possible brokered Convention, meaning that the nominee could be chosen by the Republican elite instead of the voters in the state primaries. A number of the establishment candidates were rumored to be banding together to launch “guerilla” attack campaigns against Mr. Trump to hopefully ruin his credibility. Super PAC’s controlled by the wealthiest of Republican donors are pulling out all the stops and throwing huge amounts of money at any potential plan to derail Trump, yet nothing seems to work. Now this week, it seems as if House Speaker Paul Ryan has made one of the most outlandish moves thought possible by a Republican in the recent budget.
Sabotaging the GOP Brand for the sake of the establishment
In order to damage the Republican brand beyond recognition, House of Representatives Speaker, Paul Ryan (R-W) has followed the path of previous House Speaker, John Boehner and kowtowed before President Obama by not only meeting, but seeming exceeding his demands for excess spending, immigration, Planned Parenthood funding, and more. The only rational thing Republicans can surmise at this point is that Ryan, acting under the direction of the Republican Party is trying to turn Republican voters off to the political process altogether, thus keeping them from voting and in a sense ceding the election to Hillary Clinton. Despite voters giving the Republicans House majorities larger than they have had in 150 years, the RINOs in Congress seem comfortable with handing over the power of the purse to the Executive Branch instead of fighting for the values which they promised voters they would reinstate if elected. Speaker Ryan, who was on the Republican National ticket as Vice President in the last election is now leading many of his fellow Congressmen and Women down the path to their ultimate demise in the eyes of the electorate.
The Omnibus Spending Bill Capitulation
The Omnibus Spending bill is a total surrender to Progressive Democrat principles. The 2,000 plus page bill has been characterized as a “complete sellout of America,” by many. Unprecedented spending in the trillions when we are heavy in debt with heavy support for many of Obama’s policies is what were getting. The DREAM Act, the 2012 legislative Amnesty program President Obama pushed through that grants illegal alien children who came here as minors the right to remain in America – completely funded, despite it being Unconstitutional. The Omnibus bill also fully funds all Refugee programs, despite the consensus Among American citizens that unchecked immigration under the guise of refugee programs is asking for trouble. Events in Europe are emerging daily detailing rapes, murders, jihadist events and plans, and a dangerous influence from the Muslim immigrants coming in from Syria. Our own Homeland Security Department and other National Security agencies have spoken out against admitting refugees as we have no way to vet them properly, yet the spending bill allows for admitting tens of thousands of refugees and much to the dismay of American citizens, gives them access to Federal benefits. Also, the spending does nothing stop any funding from Sanctuary cities which clearly are breaking U.S. immigration law.
Despite all the promises heard across America, the bill does nothing to enforce our immigration laws and fails to include any funding to complete the southern border wall. The Secure Fence Act of 2006 provided for a 700 mile long wall, yet it was never completed and the funding diverted to other projects. This was one of Mr. Trumps main campaign promises. To add insult to injury, this bill provides funding to resettle those illegals who are crossing our borders. Ryan’s also bill preserves the expansion of the President’s expiring child tax credits without any accompanying language to prevent illegal aliens from receiving those tax credits, once again giving in to the Democrats. Ryan’s spending bill also provides language that would resuscitate and expand the Gang of Eight’s plan to increase the H-2B visa program, which should make Senator Rubio happy since he was part of that deal. The provision quadruples the number of H-2B visas for unskilled guest workers taking entry level jobs away from American’s.
The bill has huge spending increases in most areas of the already bloated Federal Government. Congress is basically handing the uncontrolled Executive branch a blank check to continue and in many cases increase their destruction of America and the American way by flooding this great nation with as many non-citizens as possible. The potential for ISIS infiltration through this unchecked immigration is very high and Americans are afraid, plain and simple. With an additional $1.2 billion added to the Department of Education budget, a bailout of the International Monetary Fund (which could take American tax dollars overseas to bail out irresponsible foreign governments,) and a total spending increase in most other areas, this bill is nothing short of irresponsible and destructive to a nation nearing $20 trillion in debt.
In addition to the capitulation for all the Progressive spending programs, the bill was stripped of many riders, many of which would have given Conservatives a small notion of victory. Most of the proposed limitations on EPA regulations were taken out, those which could have stopped the overreach on water rules, coal plant emissions, and ozone rules. Major riders that were included to prevent the government from abusing surveillance were removed. Most pro-gun provisions were stripped away. A provision prohibiting any funding for climate related studies was removed. Overall, there were about 150 provisions removed that would seem to favor Republicans. The GOP caved on just about everything that Republican voters sent them to Washington to fight against.
It Will Backfire
Unfortunately for the GOP, no matter what they do at this point is going to scare or dishearten true American Republican and Independent voters away from the polls this November. The continued slapping in the face energizes people more and more to take a stand and elect an outsider and this outside will be Billionaire Donald Trump, who will make America great again by cleaning house, exposing the fraud and partisan politics to a level never experienced in American politics before. We can see that the GOP establishment has crossed over into no man’s land, doing things that “We The People” can only shake our fist and scream about, and all in the name of retaining some degree of power, even if it’s in the minority.
Donald Trump - Leader, Visionary, Future President
Donald Trump continues his winning streak, clearly dominating the debates, leading in the polls by huge margins, and connecting with the average American citizen. He is the kind of leader we’ve been craving. He has expressed multiple times that he wants America to have secure borders and to enforce our existing laws, of which most people agree. His demeanor is apparent and the world is coming to the realization that he isn’t going to roll over like past President’s and place nice. American interests will come before anything else. The rights of Americans and being an American citizen will mean something again. He exhibits leadership like no other candidate. He speaks to people in an encouraging and inspirational way, commanding his audience and leaving them with the feeling that, yes, we can accomplish anything we want because we are Americans. He is clearly someone who understands how to build things; buildings, companies, and hopefully fences and nations. He is intelligent far beyond anyone’s understanding and an effective problem solver. He demonstrates that with hard work anything is possible and makes no excuses for his actions.
With our national image being so poor on the world stage due to President Obama and the policies of Hillary Clinton’s State Department, we need a leader who can turn that around and put this great nation back at the top of the flow chart. It will take tough negotiations, strict adherence to policies which many might find uncomfortable, and an absolute dedication to the job at hand and not the golf course or a vacation spot. Mr. Trump has given up many things and has invested his own money into proving that he is the person who can step into the job and be successful at it. Soon with the blessing of the voters, he will prove that America can be great again with the right leadership.
Call it conspiracy, call it crazy, heck, even call it nonsense - but the fact remains that our elected Republicans are tripping over themselves in order to appease the opposition and it will be the end of their careers in due time. I'd love to hear from you as long as you keep it civil. Remember that this is my hub and not your ideological sounding board - which means as long as your post is on topic it gets approved. Thanks !
