Paul Ryan Was Devastated By This News

The media reports that establishment darling, Paul Ryan, has never been more popular in the House Republican caucus.

But is it true?

Startling new developments point toward the direction of conservatives making a move to oust the globalist Speaker of the House.

Paul Ryan’s sagging popularity is due to his sabotage of Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign.

After Trump’s improved performance during the second Presidential debate, Ryan convened a conference call to announce he would no longer defend the GOP nominee for President, robbing Trump of any post-debate momentum.

Ryan has continuously derided the Republican standard bearer, and has created negative headlines with disparaging comments about Trump.

But for all his work to torpedo Trump’s chances, it was thought that Ryan was secure in his position as Speaker of the House.

While it only takes a majority of Republicans to nominate Ryan for Speaker, he must get 218 votes on the House floor when the chamber votes for the position.

With the Republicans majority expected to be diminished in the next Congress, conservatives would need a handful of defectors to dethrone Ryan.

The first crack in Ryan’s aura of invincibility came when Oklahoma Congressman, Jim Bridenstine, tweeted his outrage that Ryan refused to support Trump for President.

And observers were shocked when North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows – the man who introduced the motion to vacate the chair, forcing John Boehner into retirement – sounded his displeasure with Ryan.

CNN reports:

“Rep. Mark Meadows said Thursday the effort to remove Speaker Paul Ryan is “picking up some steam” because many GOP lawmakers and a stream of callers to the North Carolinian’s congressional offices are incensed the Wisconsin Republican hasn’t embraced fully Donald Trump’s candidacy for president.

 

“A lot of people who believe so desperately that we need to put Donald Trump in the White House — they question the loyalty of the speaker,” Meadows told radio host Tyler Cralle of WAAV radio in Wilmington, North Carolina.”

Meadows’ comments came after Fox News star, Sean Hannity, declared Ryan a “saboteur” for working to defeat Trump.

But it’s not just working to elect Hillary Clinton that’s caused conservative displeasure with Ryan.

After conservatives won spending cuts in the 2011 debt ceiling fight, Ryan eliminated the cuts and restored higher government spending in the 2013 Ryan-Murray budget deal.

Ryan has also funded Obama 100% in the 2015 “cromnibus” bill as well as in the continuing resolution in September 2016.

While claiming to oppose the Obama and Clinton agenda, Ryan has supported their policies by funding every penny on their wish list.

Ryan also tried to attack the Second Amendment by bringing legislation to the floor for a vote that would have stripped Americans of their gun rights without due process of law.

Paul Ryan has been a failed leader who has routinely sold conservatives down the river.

And it has continued in this Presidential election as he consistently harms Donald Trump’s prospects by playing along with the media smear campaign against the GOP nominee.

    Me Bridenstine said it best!

  • notrig

    I’ve been a republican my entire 68 yrs.
    I live in Wisconsin very close to where Ryan lives.
    I’ve voted for Ryan in the past.
    When he became speaker I was so excited for our country thinking Ryan would be the stand up guy he always said he was.
    All he has done is bow to Obama and allow him and the democrats to do whatever they wished.
    I’ve been very disappointed in Mr Ryan.
    When he said he would not support HIS party’s nominee he LOST me.
    I will never vote for nor support him again.
    Ryan has evolved into the typical gutless republican afraid of his shadow.
    He knows what’s right yet no longer stands up to fight for what he says he believes. Mr Ryan will never get my support again.

      Some lessons are hard to learn, but we must learn them. Ryan isn’t on the same team we are.

      • notrig

        Will H H lll…………You are correct. I wish I could figure out WHEN he left our bench. Such a talent…..now such a waste.

        • William H. Hutchison III

          It must have been well before he was nominated as Speaker, since otherwise I wouldn’t have known to oppose him for the position. Best wishes.

            I noticed a change soon after Romney & Ryan lost the Presidential election. He started ‘evolving’ when he returned to the Senate. Romney has been another agitator against Trump – perhaps they both were devastated by the loss of their opportunity to ‘change’ our country.

  • David Stewart

    What a joke to refer to the self-serving Ryan as a “leader”, nothing could be further from the truth!

  • Sounds like he needs to change his “R” to a “D”.

    • Jola

      I suggest that he keep the “R” — as in “Retired” or “Redundant”.

      • arnapuck

        Most appropriate “R” – RINO!!!!

  • wvweights

    Hope the people of his state, do not buy his crap and vote him out of office. It would be a shame to lose a house so called gop member but for all intent and purposes he is a rep in name only.

  • William H. Hutchison III

    Flush Ryan out of the Speakers position pronto. He should never have ascended to it in the first place.

  • David Stewart

    Just how long did he think he could mislead annd lie before he was caught out? He’s NOT Harry Reid; not nearly as experienced at deceit!

    • notrig

      David S…….Ha! Harry is in a league of his own. The worst and poorest example of a Senator. He can NOT retire soon enough.

      • nicholsda

        If Reid retired tomorrow it still would be too late. He should have been gone when he would not allow votes on the budgets.

        • notrig

          nicholsda……Well done! I’m amazed at how many of my liberal friends tell me they are not aware of Reid NOT allowing budget votes!
          Obama and Reid went 3 or 4 yrs with NO budget, which in itself is unconstitutional.
          Yet no republican leader stood up to call Reid on this and face this unlawful act.
          Reid really is the worst of the worst.
          What a poor example of a so called people’s representative.

  • ricktenny

    Get him out ASAP. No more room for RINOs. We need real Republicans in Congress. That damn Gang of Eight can go down the road with him.

  • Bill Cash

    Paul Ryan is a piece of schitt and any congressman/woman who supports him falls into the same category. I don’t care which team you’re on. If you don’t support your constituents choices you have no place in the circle. I give the democrats this. Although they know, as does the rest of the world, that Hillary Clinton is the most dishonest person to ever run for president, they have circled the wagons around her. If she loses it would be a disaster to the democrat party: Barack Obama would not become a Supreme Court Justice, Joe Biden would not become Secretary of State, Liz Warren would not become Secretary of the Interior, and all of these special “appointments promised” would die on the vine. The wheels of the party would all fall off. So those who stand behind Hillary will do so to the bitter end. They will do whatever they have to do. Nothing is off the table.

    • David Stewart

      You paint a mighty grim picture, Bill Cash! If a person went searching for the worst possible candidate for those positions, those would be the ones!

      • Bill Cash

        You’re right David. And this is what Hillary has said. “Barack Obama would make the best Supreme Court Justice. Joe Biden is #1 on my list for Secretary of State. At this time I think that Elisabeth Warren would serve well as Secretary of the Interior.” So she has already stacked the deck in her intentions.

    Ryan like Boehner, MUST GO, HE IS A PRIMA DONNA. OUT PLEASE

  • C F Schultz

    Throw the establishment bum (Ryan) out. His priorities are not good for the country. God bless America.
