Rep. Matt Gaetz DROPS BOMB On Paul Ryan: Today Was the First Time I Heard Lawmakers Calling For It!

Published

on

Ever since Speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced that he was retiring from Congress the question remained about who would replace him. The obvious successor is Rep. Kevin McCarthy who is a part of the leadership and the apparent next in line. He has even been endorsed by Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana who also is a part of leadership. But growing concerns over establishment politics have been growing. As such, an increasing number of people have been calling for someone else. Rep. Jim Jordan is one who is being considered who many want to replace Speaker Ryan but not if the establishment has anything to say about it.

The Gateway Pundit reported,

“Rep. Matt Gaetz (R_FL) went on with Lou Dobbs on Wednesday and called out Speaker Paul Ryan for defending the deep state and refusing to defend Republican congressional investigators. Earlier today Paul Ryan defended the Obama FBI for spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
This was unbelievable.

Rep. Matt Gaetz: There is no defense today for Paul Ryan siding with the FBI and Department of Justice against those of us in the Congress who are working for transparency and accountability… We need the Speaker to be an institutionalist of the Congress and not to be a defender of the Deep State… The silence from our very own Speaker is deafening. He needs to speak up. He needs to join us in a call for a second Special Counsel. And for goodness sakes, stop defending the FBI’s collection of intelligence on the Trump campaign when they refuse to give us the documents to show whether or not they broke the law… As you know I run in the conservative circles of the House. And I have never up to this point heard a single person talk removing Speaker Ryan from the speakership. Today for the first time I was hearing colleagues say, “Well if Speaker Ryan won’t stand with us in this fight over the essentials of our democracy, not weaponizing the intelligence community against a presidential campaign, do we need to look at other choices?” So I think that remains a lingering question.”

While Roll Call reported,

“Before the House took last week off, members of the Intelligence Committee received a classified briefing on the ongoing Russia investigation. That briefing apparently included clarifying details on the FBI’s handling of the informant in Trump’s 2016 campaign. Both Ryan and Gowdy, who have now publicly defended the FBI’s actions, were at the meeting. Gaetz, a freshman from Florida, was not.

“Based on what I have seen, I don’t know what the FBI could have done or should have done other than run out a lead that someone loosely connected with the campaign was making assertions about Russia,” Gowdy said last week on CBS’ “This Morning.” “I would think you would want the FBI to find whether or not there was any validity to what those people were saying,” Gowdy said. Ryan backed Gowdy on Wednesday in response to a question at the GOP’s weekly leadership team press conference. “Chairman Gowdy’s initial assessment is accurate,” Ryan said. “I want to make sure that we run every lead down and make sure we get final answers to these questions.”

While many conservatives such as Rep. Gaetz are displeased with Speaker Ryan, so is Rep. Jim Jordan who is a prominent member of the House Freedom Caucus. Rumors have circulated on Capitol Hill that he has been lobbying fellow members and privately courting other members of Congress to support his bid to replace Speaker Ryan when he retires. However, some opponents have indicated that his lack of fundraising success in the past would not make him a good fit. Something that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has been very successful at.

Yet, some have continued to encourage Rep. Jordan, especially more conservative members of Congress. Several staffers, aides, lawmakers, and political strategists have indicated so to high profile news outlets like CNBC on the condition of anonymity. However, if this is true Rep. Jordan is not giving any indication of what he plans to do as he refused to return comments when reached out to regarding the issue. Yet in a separate interview, he told PBS that he would like to be a part of the conversation regarding the Speaker of the House position when it comes up.

Share if you agree that their needs to be a more conservative member of Congress as Speaker of the House.

Share if you believe that Rep. Matt Gaetz is correct about that.

Share if you think that Speaker Ryan should not be replaced by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Share if you agree that Rep. Jim Jordan should be given a legitimate opportunity to replace Speaker Ryan.

Share if you believe that doing so would bring conservative leaders back to the party.

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
