Memo to House Republicans: Ryan’s Agenda Will Help Trump and Cruz

Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.

Vote Cruz in Iowa as if the Republic Depends on It

Ted Cruz represents the conservative movement within the GOP, and if he wins, he brings a new class of conservative activists to Washington, who would displace the present feckless Republican establishment.  And this is what the Republican establishment fears more than anything; when Ted Cruz wins he brings more than a new Republican administration to power – he brings us – the limited government constitutional conservative movement to power.

Trump Bashes Ted Cruz for Being Rude to Mitch McConnell

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Within the last nine months, Donald Trump has mocked a disabled reporter for his disability, suggested that Megyn Kelly was on her period during the course of a debate, made fun of Carly Fiorina’s looks, and called the entirety of the Republican leadership “stupid” more times than I can count. Now he is bashing Ted Cruz for – I kid you not – having bad manners with an esteemed member of the Republican Establishment.

Obama Throws Down The Gauntlet: GOP Leaders Pre-Surrender

Republican leaders will talk a good game for the next year, but don’t expect Obama to leave office with his agenda unfinished, because, as we explain here, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have already “pre-surrendered.”

It’s Time To Call BS on Texas GOP Rep. John Culberson

This is going to play out exactly the same way Rep. Culberson’s cynical lies about stopping Obama's executive amnesty played out. Culberson will bluster, he will threaten, he may even hold a hearing or two, but absolutely nothing Obama does on guns is going to change because Culberson has already funded everything Obama plans to do right through September 2016. Please sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Obama’s Gun Grab: To Protect Our Liberty We Need More Congressmen Like Mo Brooks

Republican "leaders" gave away their only leverage against Obama when they passed the Omnibus appropriations bill and funded his entire agenda for the rest of his term, and none of them have actually attacked the basic premise of his actions – that government can and should restrict or ban the possession of firearms by ordinary Americans. Leave eloquently opposing that proposition to Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama. Sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republican leaders, tell them "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

GOA: Yes, Obama IS Coming After Your Guns

Obama believes that because terrorists and some who are mentally deranged want to kill us, we should take a closer look at our gun laws. On that point, we agree:  We do need to reexamine our gun laws.  But what will make us safer is to repeal unconstitutional gun laws.   Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Thank Paul Ryan For Obama’s Gun Grab

When the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America. Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

Schumer brags that McConnell did Democrat agenda

Rick Manning, NetRightDaily

Democrat Senator and future leader of that party in the Senate Chuck Schumer broke D.C. protocol by telling the truth about how the minority party still controls the agenda when he gloated, “Sen. [Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell wants to see the Senate work.  But the good news for [Democrats] is, to make it work, he has to do basically our agenda.”

Obama, Ryan and McConnell Overturn Results of 2014 Midterms, Take Victory Lap

A few principled Republicans on Capitol Hill did vote “NO” on the Omnibus: Ted Cruz said he voted not just "NO, but Hell No," and Rand Paul voted "NO," but Marco Rubio? He once again skipped the vote. Please watch our free "message from the grassroots" video and then forward it to your friends to let the Republican establishment know what you think about their complete surrender to Obama.

10 Days To Save America: Defund Planned Parenthood NOW!

As big as abortion is as a policy debate, the internal Republican debate over cutting funds for Planned Parenthood is even more consequential from a constitutional perspective. It goes to the very heart of our constitutional system of government and what the role of Congress is in it. Why is it so hard for the sophisticated insiders of the Republican establishment to understand this? Please join us by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders

11 Days to Save America: Defund Obama’s Disastrous Policies or be Complicit in the Destruction of Our Country

We have 11 days to stop the funding of Obama’s priorities; it is time to tell Republicans in Congress that we demand an end to the “show votes” and that instead of giving Obama a blank check for the final year of his administration they must exercise the power the Constitution gave them to stand as a check against Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

House GOP Show Vote Won’t Stop One Syrian Terrorist From Entering America

Here is the reality of Speaker Ryan’s American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act; it was forced through the House on a closed Rule (no amendments allowed) and it leaves the action to decide whether or not a Syrian “refugee” is admitted to America entirely in the hands of Obama’s appointees. It wasn’t passed to protect innocent Americans, it is purely a political ploy to protect vulnerable Republican incumbents who are facing conservative primary challengers.

GOP Establishment Owns Obama's Syrian Refugee Threat Because They Keep Funding It

Martha Roby, Renee Ellmers, Pete Sessions and other establishment Republicans gave Obama a blank check with their votes on the past three budget and spending bills. Now they are trying to claim they have no control over what he does with the money and couldn’t imagine that he would pursue a dangerous policy like bringing potential Syrian Muslim terrorists to America? If that’s their excuse they are just plain lying, or they are too dangerously naïve to represent the American people in Congress.

Speaker Ryan Schedules Show Vote: Shuts Out Conservatives On Syrian Jihadi Menace

Speaker Paul Ryan's SAFE Act of 2015 will not stop one jihadi posing as a Syrian “refugee” from entering the United States. However, it will make Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment look like they are doing something, when in fact they are complicit in Obama’s dangerous plans because they keep funding them. We urge you to call your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell them you understand that the SAFE Act of 2015 is nothing but a "show vote." Tell them that if they fund Obama’s dangerous Syrian “refugee” program they own it.

Cruz Introduces Bill To Actually Stop Terrorists Infiltrating USA As “Refugees”

As he did with his tax reform proposal and his border security and immigration plans Senator Ted Cruz has introduced a plan that actually solves a problem country class Americans want solved – in this case stopping jihadi terrorists from infiltrating America as Syrian “refugees.”

The Coming Worthless “Show Vote” On The Syrian Refugee Menace

We urge you to call your Representative and Senators, the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, tell them you understand that the SAFE Act of 2015 is nothing but a "show vote." Tell them that if they fund Obama’s dangerous Syrian “refugee” program they own it. Tell them that if they fund the program that brings jihad to America then they are complicit in the murder and bloodshed that will surely follow.

25 Governors Said NO To Syrian Refugees: Will GOP Congress Help?

UPDATED: The count now up to the Governors of 30 states* (29 of them Republicans) who have now said “NO” to bringing Syrian “refugees” to their communities, but the Republican leaders of Capitol Hill, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have been completely silent on whether they will support these Governors by moving legislation to defund Obama’s jihad importation program.

Ted Cruz: Repealing Obamacare Isn't Complicated

Ted Cruz is right, and he has proven once again that he is the one guy on Capitol Hill conservatives can trust to always keep his word. Passing a full repeal of Obamacare and sending the bill to the President’s desk as Republicans promised during the 2014 midterm election isn’t complicated. All it takes is a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply in the establishment Republican "leadership."

Establishment Republicans Walking Away From Full Obamacare Repeal

A one sentence repeal of Obamacare through the budget reconciliation bill should be an easy call for Republicans. They have the majority, they can ignore the recommendation of the Senate Parliamentarian if it goes against them, let the Senate vote on a favorable interpretation of the rules and forge forward – but that requires a credible argument and a spine, both of which are in short supply among establishment Republican “leaders” in Congress.
