Paul Ryan to speak at Republican National Convention

by  |  published on July 11, 2016

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., will speak at the Republican National Convention next week in Cleveland, Fox News confirmed Monday.

He becomes the latest high-profile speaker added to the roster, despite his well-publicized differences with presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

“I want to talk about our ideas, our solutions and how our party should unite … around our common principles and how we apply those principles to problems,” Ryan told Politico, which first reported the development.

Aides told Politico the speech will be 10 minutes long and will focus on the agenda of the House Republicans and “the sharp contrast between Republican ideas and four more years of Obama-like progressive policies; and the need for conservatives to unite around Republican candidates in advance of a critical election.”

Ryan endorsed Trump in June despite their differences, but has since objected to a number of things the billionaire has done or said, including disagreeing with his call for a ban on immigration from countries with a history of terrorism.

    I hope Ryan will talk about trade policies in his speech.

    Paul Nehlen Billboard Hits Ryan on Trade

    by JULIA HAHN9 Jul 2016 Janesville, WI

    JANESVILLE, WI– Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen has launched his latest billboard ad against House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    The new billboard focuses on Ryan’s support for trade policies that have shipped jobs overseas and have laid off Wisconsin workers.

    The billboard reads: “Ryan’s trade policies have laid off millions of workers. Send Ryan his lay-off notice on August 9th.”

    The billboard is on display in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin.

    Behind the billboard’s text is a picture of the Janesville General Motors assembly plant, which announced its official closure last year after years of remaining idle. The image of the abandoned GM plant may have special emotional significance for the residents of Janesville.

    As Janesville’s GazetteXtra reported in March: “GM operated a plant in the city from 1919 to 2008, employing as many 7,000 people at its peak. From 2008 to 2015, it sat empty and unused on ‘standby’ status. The company announced last fall that it will officially close.”

    Days before the 2012 Presidential election, Business Insider ran a story featuring photos of the deserted plant in a piece entitled, “Heartbreaking Photos Of The Shuttered GM Plant In Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin Hometown.”

    Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney went on to not only lose the state of Wisconsin in the 2012 election, but they lost Paul Ryan’s hometown of Janesville by 25 points.

    Since Paul Ryan took office in 1999, Wisconsin has lost one-fifth of its total manufacturing jobs.

    The e/GOP leaders, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnel, John Boehner and Eric Cantor have been complicit in enabling Obama’s treasonous agenda for almost a decade!

    Before the November 2014 election, Republican’s made us, their base, sweet sounding promises! Then they lied, betrayed and back stabbed their supporters after the election.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican to recently pass the Omnibus Spending Bill and F#%k over all Americans opposed to funding illegal aliens and muslim refugee resettlement.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass TPP and F#%k over American workers.

    The November election was a verdict ..AGAINST, Obama’s treasonous illegal alien amnesty plans ….by ….the …..American ….voters!

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to pass a funding bill that pays for Obama’s illegal executive action granting legal status to illegal aliens.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to do the same thing as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744 and recently passed CRONYbus HR83.

    The last election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT round up and deport ALL illegal aliens in the USA.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to increase H-1b visas as disclosed in Gang Of Eight Senate Bill 744.

    The election was …NOT, approval for Republican plans to NOT cancel the H-1b visa program and NOT deport ALL the foreigners here now taking American jobs.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republican actions to gut EPA regulations and pollute with abandon.

    The November 2014 election was ..NOT, approval for Republican plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

    The election was ..NOT, approval for Republicans to allow corporations to avoid paying US taxes through tax inversion schemes.

    The election was ..NOT, approval for ALL Republicans to allow US Banks to once again allow “Derivatives provision” and CITIBANK language repealing part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law putting American taxpayers on the hook, …again, for their losses as recently passed in CRONYbus HR83.

    Remember, American Patriots STILL, vote in far greater numbers than Illegal Aliens and Billionaire PAC’$ …and they will vote for TRUMP!

    Oh, and speaking of …establishment republicans and illegal aliens. I was glad to see that Eric Cantor was up and around last fall tearfully pImping John Boehner’s career. Last I heard, he had his head over a toilet for 6 months after his loss.

    ………………….Trump 2016

    Ryan and the e/GOP leadership has been complicit in enabling Obama’s agenda for the last 7-1/2 years.

    They even voted to fund Obama’s muslim resettlement plans in the Cromnibus Spending Bill!

    The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.

    Last December, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill to fund the government through next September that amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration matters.

    Where do I begin to condemn this? I’ll start with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan. It didn’t take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration, did it?

    When he was running for Speaker last fall, Ryan promised he would not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority of Republican House Members.

    Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved.

    It goes further:

    »Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year from 66,000 to 264,000.

    Not only that…

    »FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed Obama everything he wants.

    »FUNDS Obama’s catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.

    »FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.

    »MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no income tax, the government pays THEM. Yes, that includes illegal aliens! Also,

    Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax credits on their tax returns.

    »FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers of these crossing the border is way up again this year.

    Even with all these outrages I’ve mentioned, there are still MORE terrible things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats to vote NO on this monstrosity.

    Yet, most Republicans and most all the Democrats voted yes, and it passed. Their complicity in this sell out is the real threat to the Constitution and Americans that want jobs and security.

    …………..Trump 2016

    It’s a good idea for Speaker Ryan to speak at the Republican National Convention. Republicans worked to make it possible for the GOP to control the House. It’s only appropriate that their leader lay out a vision for voters.
