Wisconsin Voters Reject Paul Ryan on Trade

Julia Hahn, Breitbart

In a stunning rebuke of the trade policies of Wisconsin’s most famous lawmaker and Speaker of the House, Rep. Paul Ryan, a mere one in three Wisconsin Republicans sided with Ryan’s trade vision in a question that put the most positive possible spin on Ryan’s view.

Wisconsin’s Most Important Election Wasn’t Yesterday’s Presidential Primary

The most important vote for Wisconsin conservatives and populists was not counted last night. It is the coming August 9 Republican congressional primary. Until Paul Ryan is defeated, and Paul Nehlen nominated and elected, the Washington Cartel will remain firmly in control of the US House of Representatives. #NeverRyan

Ted Cruz’s tightrope walk on free trade vs. protectionism

While Cruz’s opposition to President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership may endear him to his base, it could also allow rivals such as Marco Rubio to accuse him of flip-flopping on his past support for the deal, opening him up to charges of political pandering and threatening his carefully cultivated image as the most principled candidate in the field.

Marco Rubio’s Cynical Ploy on the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Marco Rubio has made a career out of talking a good game on the conservative agenda and then giving a charming puppy dog smile as he abandons that agenda and throws his support to Big Government anti-constitutional, anti-conservative policies.  He did it as a member of the Gang of Eight on amnesty, and he’s doing it once again as he “distances himself” from the TPP and pretends to mull the pros and cons of a bill that will destroy the quality of life for millions of American families.

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Sessions says the reason why Republicans need to talk about the detrimental economic effects of out-of-control immigration and trade policies is because those topics prove in a substantive way to voters that they care about ordinary Americans—the people who vote in elections.

Buchanan: America is Rejecting the GOP’s Big Business Wing

Scott Greer, Daily Caller

“You’re not going to get back the middle class when you’re constantly appeasing big business — when folks are losing their jobs because of these trade deals, these masses of imports, these open borders, and the wars we’ve gotten into. I think the whole country is rejecting that,” Buchanan said.
