Joseph Farah on presumptive speaker: 'Who needs this guy?'
By all accounts, Paul Ryan is a very nice fellow. He’s a good family man. He’s an impressive orator. He’s smart. He’s good-looking. But he would be one of the very worst choices Republicans could make for speaker of the House. Why do I say that? The way I explain it to people outside the beltway is this: He’s a more attractive version of John Boehner. He’s a more articulate version of John Boehner. He’s a smarter version of John Boehner. But make no mistake about it; he’s every bit as much an establishment Republican as John Boehner.….
Curtis Ellis spotlights GE's moving of 350 positions to Canada
Paul Ryan’s free-trade policies have just cost the people of his district their jobs. General Electric announced it will close the plant in Ryan’s district that manufactures gas engines and move the operation to Canada. This is fine with Mr. Ryan. He has taken the European Union principle of the free flow of people, goods and capital across borders and adopted it as his own worldview and philosophy. President Obama praised Ryan for his stand on immigration and trade, policies that would make it easier for global corporations to import people or products from overseas without worrying about pesky things called national borders. As chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Ryan led the charge to give Obama extra-constitutional powers to enact the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a sweeping international regulatory body, and strip Congress of its ability to amend whatever pact Obama proposes.
We have learned that the pact – what Obama calls “the rules for the world economy” – will make it easier for companies to bring foreign guest workers into this country, as well as ship jobs out of this country. Should he become speaker of the House, Ryan will be in charge of shepherding Obamatrade through the House. The 350 GE workers making engines in southeastern Wisconsin are the latest but by no means the only victims of Ryan’s open-borders philosophy………..
Carl Jackson advocates for 'principle-based' approach to leading House
Paul Ryan’s ability to communicate legislation is masterful. It’s his depth of conservative conviction that has left many wondering if he’s the right man for the job as speaker of the House at this moment in history.Many Republicans were upset when the Freedom Caucus initially withheld its support from Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., in his bid for speaker. I suspect they caved due to the time limitation Ryan placed on them, in addition to insurmountable outside pressure. Nonetheless, the office of speaker is so consequential it’s worth fighting over, and those that stood for Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., should be applauded not despised. Under Article I, Section 2, of our Constitution, the founders gave the House of Representatives the power to choose its speaker and other officers. Since “the People’s House” has a direct impact upon local municipalities and their citizens, it is our last line of defense from a power-hungry federal government that will take the shirts off of our backs if we allow it. In the book “The Making of America,” the duties of the speaker are outlined:…..
Sessions: 'Great danger' of amnesty in 2017
More than 9 in 10 Republican voters oppose Ryan-Rubio immigration agenda. Sen. Jeff Sessions is echoing the concerns of other prominent conservatives that the events unfolding now in Washington could lead to mass amnesty in 2017. “The word is… that 2017 is the year to watch for immigration,” radio host Laura Ingraham asked Sessions. “What are the chances… that if Rep. Paul Ryan is Speaker and Hillary Clinton is President of the United States, or Sen. Marco Rubio is President of the United States that they would move in the first 100 days to push a massive, similar [to the ‘Gang of Eight’] immigration reform bill?” Sessions replied, “I think there’s a great danger that that would happen.”….. Sessions explained in the interview, “There’s a great danger to elect a Speaker of the House who is a leading advocate for two major issues today — trade and immigration — and advocating against the wishes of the Republican voter.”…… Since Wisconsin voters sent Paul Ryan to Washington, the United States has brought in a population that is nearly triple the size of the population of their state. Yet under the Ryan-Rubio vision for a New American Century, those numbers would be even larger......
