Paul Ryan reportedly telling confidants he’s ready to end Donald Trump impasse

by Billy House, Jennifer Jacobs, Kevin Cirilli  |  published on May 25, 2016

House Speaker Paul Ryan has begun telling confidants that he wants to end his standoff with Donald Trump in part because he’s worried the split has sharpened divisions in the Republican Party, according to two people close to the lawmaker.

Ryan aides say nothing has been decided about a possible Trump endorsement. But Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, told a small group of Republican lawmakers Thursday that he expects Ryan to endorse the party’s nominee as early as this week, according to two people in the meeting.

If Ryan were to endorse Trump, the move would end a nearly unprecedented standoff between the House speaker and his party’s presumptive presidential nominee, and remove the biggest remaining obstacle to Trump’s efforts to unite Republicans around his campaign.

In fact, Manafort told the gathering of Republican lawmakers that Ryan’s endorsement would put more pressure on the party’s remaining Trump holdouts to fall in line.

    Most of our legislators are traitors, we need to have a cleansing!

    I hope Speaker Ryan reads The Dick Act of 1902(1956,2008) instead of going along with Obama. This legislation cannot be changed by the DNC nor the DNC’s Kenyan President. THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS THE DOCUMENT THAT NO ONE OVERRIDES. iT IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ANYONE.

    To Hellll with the Ryan R.A.T. PAC (RINO’s Against Trump)

  • CharlieSeattle

    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! These azzoles are NOT Conservatives!

    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.

      They don’t back stab us anymore…they have embolded themselves and they stab us in the face now and give us the finger while saying these small people can do nothing about us, so we will continue as we always have, selling off America, lying and cheating and padding our pockets while spending America into the abyss. What needs to happen is all of them, except for a small few, need to be gone, their retirement money dumped into Social Security and their insurance funds deleted….they can buy their own and when they reach 65, they can have their own government run insurance called Medicare and get their retirement check from SS just like their employers do….those employers being the American tax payers. Bonuses for federal workers needs to be axed….the federal employees’ raises should be attached to the raises for the social security and military retired, who have had only one 3% raise in eight years…the only federal employees who make more than the regular American worker should be our soldiers. Departments need to be cut, starting with TSA, DHS, Department of Education, EPA….and so many more unconstitutional parts of the government…..downsizing is always a cost saver to any business…..the government should be treated like a business and banks and Wall Street need to be check along with the
      Federal Reserve….if they go belly up, so be it… business should be too big to fail….if they can’t run their business in the black, too damn bad, but no of our money goes to them. It is time to start reducing the 19 trillion dollar debt….and the first thing that needs to be cut is freebies for the illegals…..deport ALL of them….build the damn fence and this alone will save Americans 187 billion a year. I need to stop ranting, but I am angry about our so-called congress and the lying news medias….and this is why Trump has become so popular, not because he is a conservative, liberal or independent, but because he speaks without political correctness. I see him as a pragmatist….he sees a problem that needs fixing, it does not pertain to political party….it is just something that a business man sees that needs to be fixed. We have tried the politicians and this is why we are in such a state of disrepair….let’s try running American government live a business for a change….give Trump a chance….hell, it can’t be any worse if the lying, murdering, criminal Clinton.

    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 two months ago, 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.

      “The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.” WRONG! They are just useful puppets.

      This country is run by the powerful elites behind the curtains. They are the powerful elites like Soros, Bloomberg, the Rockefeller’s, Vanderbilt’s, Rothschild’s, Kennedy’s, the Hollywood Left (Not to be mistaken for the useful idiots you see on the big screen), the elites of the Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission. They are the ones who make up the real power. Obama McCommell, Reid, Ryan and Pelosi are just part of a long line of useful puppets controlled by the elite puppet masters. All you have to do is a little research and you will find that all this was in the works long before Obama was even born. You will find it goes back even further with Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter and even Reagan. All these people were useful puppets. The Powerful Elite Liberal Progressives have been pushing the socialist agenda in America for decades. Possibly as far back as the early to middle 1800s. Don’t just take my word for all of this. Do your own research. Removing Obama from office, regardless of the means will not put a stop to this. He will just be replaced. This is what Khrushchev was talking about when he said they would defeat us from within without firing a shot. If Joseph McCarthy was still alive, he would be saying ‘I told you so!”

    Conflict in Paul’s Brain:
    Let’s see. Shall I have all the conservatives which I’ve disgusted since I took over for Boehnhead, combined with all the Trump fans, calling for my replacement, or shall I support Trump? Hmmm. “Alright! Go Donald!”

      Paul Ryan Challenger Paul Nehlen: ‘He Has Betrayed Us All’

      breitbart. com/big-government/2016/05/07/ryan-challenger-paul-nehlen-he-has-betrayed-us-all/

      House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen said of Ryan on Saturday, “He has betrayed us all, hasn’t he? He says he’s for a secure border. Then what’s he do? He funds every dangerous immigration policy through this $1.8 trillion omnibus. What he funded was all his special interest buddies.”

      …………….Vote for Paul Nehlen!!

      I want to see Paul Ryan on a street corner selling pencils!

      • metheoldsarge

        Music to my ears. I hope this really catches on all over the country. Republican Businessman Paul Nehlen will challenge Ryan in the Wisconsin State Primary to be held in August. He has gained a lot of followers and support in Ryan’s district. I think Ryan is getting worried. This same thing is also happening in Florida. Debbie Wassserman Schultz is being challenged in the Florida State Primaries. This could mean that Schultz and Ryan could be knocked out of the General Election.

        Every single Congressman in the House has to be reelected in November. There are also quite a few Senators up for reelection. We need to send those old career politicians from both parties into forced retirement. There are many who are not happy with the people they sent to Washington or State and Local office. They will vote to reelect them anyway because they cannot bring themselves to vote for anyone in the other party.

        There are voting alternatives without breaking party loyalty. It is called State Primaries. Most states have a separate primary for Presidential candidates and another for all the others. Those are called State Primaries. Most states will have theirs starting in July.
