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.

For conservatives and the House Freedom Caucus, a time to build

Jim DeMint, Washington Examiner

It's not a perfect situation, but it'll be what conservatives make of it. If the House Freedom Caucus keeps the GOP leadership honest and stays true to their revolutionary spirit, 2016 will be a lot more productive for conservatives than 2015.

Conservatives seek power shift from GOP leaders

Scott Wong, The Hill

Conservative House lawmakers are pitching a major overhaul of the influential Steering Committee, including the removal of six powerful committee chairmen from the Speaker-controlled panel in a bid to spread out the power. Under the plan, four lower-ranking members of leadership also would get axed from the Steering panel.

Can Paul Ryan tame the reckless establishment?

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

House Speaker Paul Ryan has a harder job than many of his predecessors. Rarely has the speaker had to deal with such an irresponsible and unserious group of politicians so uninterested in good governance. This dangerous group goes by many names including: "the Establishment," the "centrists," and the "bipartisan consensus."

The Republicans who didn’t vote for Ryan

Christina Marcos, The Hill

The nine Daniel Webster supporters were Reps. Dave Brat (Va.), Curt Clawson (Fla.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Walter Jones (N.C.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Bill Posey (Fla.), Randy Weber (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.).

Democrats like what they hear from Ryan

Mike Lillis, The Hill

After Paul Ryan’s speech, Rep. Joseph Crowley, vice chairman of the Democratic Caucus said, "It sounded an awful lot like a Democrat speaking. I think he's a good person and a decent guy. That came through, I think, today."

Paul Ryan embraces Failure Theater on the budget deal

streiff, RedState

This budget “deal” represents nothing more than making a deal for the sake of making a deal. It is the triumph of process over outcome. We negotiated with ourselves. We gave Obama what he wanted and needed and we got a “deal.” This is a very inauspicious beginning for Paul Ryan and the House Freedom Caucus would be completely justified in telling him that he has violated any trust that existed beforehand and from this point on he is on his own.

John Boehner’s Enablers Are Now Shocked At The Spending

Erick Erickson, RedState

All Barack Obama had to do was threaten a government shutdown and the leadership and their cheerleaders would cave. Republican leaders will not fight because they do not have to fight because they know that editorialists, pundits, and donors will pat them on the back and say “tough break.” Well, it is — for the country.

Will Ryan sellout to K Street?

Timothy Carney, Washington Examiner

As House speaker, he will undergo immense pressure from the business lobby to play ball. Past speakers went along with such pressure, in part because it never occurred to them to resist — it was assumed business was always an ally.

Mark Meadows: Speaker candidates should oppose budget deal

Allahpundit, Hot Air

It’s revealing that Meadows didn’t issue an ultimatum to abandon the deal, insisting instead that Ryan merely vote no to signal his disapproval. That’s a minor demand; no doubt Boehner is fully encouraging Ryan to oppose the bill behind the scenes in the name of building a bit of goodwill with conservatives.

Daniel Webster still running against Paul Ryan for Speaker

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Unlike Ryan, Webster has very publicly articulated reforms he would make to the House GOP conference structure. Specifically, he told Breitbart News in a recent exclusive interview, he wants to spread power away from the Speaker’s office toward the membership of the House.

Ryan schedules Victory Party for Thursday’s Speakership vote

Neil Munro, Breitbart

“Just what we need, another arrogant politician in charge,” a senior House GOP aide told Breitbart News. There is still an off-chance that Ryan could be defeated on the floor, or forced to win a second ballot.

Levin: Why we don’t trust the GOP establishment

Chris Pandolfo, Conservative Review

As Levin pointed out, if Republicans want conservatives’ trust and votes, they’ll need to earn them. That starts with using budget reconciliation to fully repeal Obamacare like the GOP promised.

Speaker’s Race Still Wide Open – Just Say NO To Paul Ryan
