The change in tone in Sean Spicer's White House press briefing is a very important piece of trail craft that tells us Priebus’ influence is waning and that the Ryancare disaster has shown just how out of his depth the White House Chief of Staff is, given that his primary qualification for the job was his long home state relationship with Speaker Paul Ryan.
The behavior of Rep. Adam Schiff and other Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence isn’t caused by their purported outrage at the phony allegations of Russian “hacking” of the 2016 election; it is merely the latest episode in a long running series of Democrats politicizing leaks and using secret intelligence to discredit their political opponents.
Conservatives are getting next to nothing in the #Ryancare bill. It’s time for conservatives and for President Trump to take his own deal making advice and walk away from this disaster – there are better deals available and the price of giving illegal aliens taxpayer subsidized health care is way too high. We urge CHQ readers to contact House Freedom Caucus members to urge them to stand tall against bullying from establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan.
The House votes today on #Ryancare. In his desperation to maintain federal government control of the health insurance and health care markets establishment Republican Speaker Paul Ryan is turning more and more to the ugly corruption of the Democrats’ former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. We urge CHQ readers to contact their Representative to demand they vote NO on this corrupt disaster.
Much as we’d like President Trump to succeed, providing subsidized health care to illegal aliens is too steep a price for conservatives to pay to support the President in his optimistic push to use Speaker Paul Ryan’s disastrous Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or #Ryancare bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The only parts of Obamacare establishment Republicans want to repeal are the parts in the current House bill, they are perfectly happy to keep the regulations and other Big Government parts of Obamacare and have no intention of establishing a free market health care and health care insurance system.
#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!
Ryancare is a twofer for Ryan: He and his big government DC pals continue to control people’s lives by controlling the health care and health insurance markets and they screw Trump in the process.
American Action Network, a political action committee with ties to former Speaker John Boehner and current Speaker Paul Ryan, is airing a half-million dollars’ worth of television ads in the districts of 30 Freedom Caucus members urging them to support Paul Ryan's #RINOcare bill.
Eight years after Obama and Pelosi set out to pass Obamacare, Republican Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican President Donald Trump are embarked on similar path that, if it continues, will have disastrous political consequences for the Trump and Republican brands.
Tuesday was a rough night for the resistance, and not just because Donald Trump gave the finest speech of his career. The movement also suffered grievous self-inflicted wounds in its continuing campaign to destroy the nation’s 45th president. Democratic donors are no doubt beginning to ask themselves why they signed on for another era of Nancy Pelosi’s leadership of their party in the House.
There is an anti-constitutional coup taking place in this country. And on Monday the coup plotters registered their first kill: LTG Mike Flynn, President Trump’s national security advisor. In this must-read article we offer conservatives a definitive analysis of how and why the deep state took out General Flynn.
Gen. Mike Flynn committed an unforgivable sin in the eyes of Democrats and the Republican national security establishment; he wrote a book proving what they have been doing for twenty-five years hasn’t been working. Even more unforgivably, he then managed to place himself next to a President who agrees, and is prepared to take his advice and examine whether the United States can have a new and more productive relationship with Russia.
The more concentrated caucus of liberals remained loyal to Pelosi, who, as the congresswoman representing San Francisco, is among the most left-leaning lawmakers in Congress and championed President Obama's liberal agenda during the two years when Congress and the White House were in Democratic hands, from 2009-11.
Democrats are conflicted about how to proceed. But there is one thing they must do if they want to be relevant: leave Mr. Obama and his doctrinaire leftism behind, and move back to the center. If they do that, they may once again enjoy Bill Clintonesque electoral success. If they do not, they may well be consigned to the trash heap of history for a long time to come.
Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explained her support for the $1.2 trillion spending bill that the Republican Congress by pointing out Republicans “were willing to concede so much” to get the bill passed. The bill, Pelosi noted, did not stop funding of Planned Parenthood, and the Republicans “had to take out their provisions to destroy ACA”—the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare.
The alleged conservatives of the Freedom Caucus who abandoned their support for the conservative reforms they called for when John Boehner was Speaker to support Paul Ryan over conservative Daniel Webster have a lot to answer for now that Ryan has shown the conservative grassroots what he’s really made of in this year's omnibus spending bill. Please join us in demanding an end to this dangerous folly by signing our open letter to House and Senate Republican leaders.
Pelosi didn’t identify the House Speaker she wants, even though her wish-list is a good match for Paul Ryan, who favors an unlimited inflow of foreign workers, and is backing a huge reduction in jail sentences.
Little wonder Nancy Pelosi is interested in a “bipartisan approach” to the election of an establishment Republican, like Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, as Speaker. Ryan would give the Democrats everything they want; a “clean” debt ceiling increase, a Continuing Resolution to fund the government at Obama levels of spending, breaking the spending caps a la the Ryan – Murray budget, continuing funding of Planned Parenthood, continued funding of Obamacare and worst of all, congressional confirmation of amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
