Speaker Ryan's Nomination Not So Unanimous After All

Paul Ryan

Our friend limited government consitutional hero Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the vote for House Speaker Paul Ryan:

“Today we had a Republican Conference vote on nominating a candidate for Speaker of the House election which we will have in early January, 2017, in open session on the House floor.  Several Members have pointed out that we had inadequate time to have a fair, true nomination process, having just elected last week the Members who would actually vote on the nomination.”

“We had discussed not voting ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ and have as of this writing confirmed with two other Members that they did not vote yes or no as there was no alternative.  The Speaker had chosen yesterday not to make a speech and open himself to unlimited questions like most of the candidates.”

“Although some press has said that I ‘yelled’ at Speaker Ryan, I did not yell, but hopefully made my concerns with our Republican leaders’ actions crystal clear.  I did not plan to and did not vote for or against Speaker Ryan in the election to nominate a Speaker. I had intended to ask the Speaker to make time for a visit and, to his credit, he agreed to talk.”

“This nation just came to the brink of losing 4 of our 10 original Bill of Rights, and I will not go quietly down another road of failing to use our Majority to accomplish what's been promised.”


Congressman Gohmert is the Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, he was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas and was appointed by then Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals.

Paul Ryan

I am a KY resident and I have watched Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. I don't like either one of them. I voted for Mitch in his last election because his opponent was a total liberal hack and I simply would rather have Mitch than her. His opponent in the primary is now the governor of KY. He may well run for the Senate in four more years, when I believe Mitch will retire. He would be an improvement.

Speaker of the House

As an Ohio resident, having followed Speaker Ryan's behaver and policies last year and through the 2016 election process, I CANNOT approve of the House of Representatives electing him again as Speaker of the House.

I believe he is a RINO, his budget plan is a joke, and I truly do not believe he will advance and support President Elect Donald Trump.

We need someone like Jim Jordon, or someone who is not a RINO, or shown to be with the "Never TRUMP Movement". I DO NOT TRUST THEM. I am so sick and tried OF Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the other RINO's who have repeatedly caved into the PC movement and their own agendas. Their performances have shown their true colors, giving Obama everything He put before them. These men do not represent WE THE PEOPLE! They want the NWO and will do whatever it takes to belittle and sabotage Donald Trump.

Paul RINO is a Globasocialist Mole

Paul Ryan is using the Pelosi tactic of ramming decisions down our throats without due process. He must be stopped by legislators and for that to occur they need to get their bearings. I eagerly await the hero who will make this happen in the House
