Understand Just How Badly You Got Sold out by the Ryan Spending Bill, and Why

By Dr. Joel McDurmon. Conservative outlets all over are blasting the Paul Ryan-led omnibus bill for a total sell-out of conservative voters. Breitbart calls it a betrayal of America. Rush Limbaugh concurred, using language even more vulgar.

Reading through their reasonings and rantings, one can gather just how badly we have been sold out. But you would not see the depth of it, actually. The depth of this depravity can be judged merely by analyzing the vote as it was taken in the House.

The record vote reveals that only three (count them—3) Republicans opposed the bill. That means that virtually the entire clan of so-called “Liberty caucus” conservatives supported the sell-out.

But it gets worse. 77 Democrats voted for this bill specifically because Paul Ryan went out of his way to court their vote (with late-night, secret deals reminiscent of the ObamaCare passing). Ryan not only sold out conservatives on Trillions in spending and new deficits, but virtually rubber-stamped Obama’s executive orders, his regionalism program to back-door annex suburbs by major urban centers (the Alinskyite-activists’ dream for years), funds Planned Parenthood, and funds a variety of other miscreant bureaucratic measures (including increased funding for activist bureaucracies in the Department of Education, as well as slipping in an internet spying amendment, among others. . .

What the numbers reveal is that Paul Ryan (or the Republican establishment in general) actively courted Democrat votes when they didn’t need them. Apparently, Ryan and company wanted so badly to present this bill as “bipartisan” that he caved seriously on a number of leftist issues just to woo a couple handfuls of Democrats.

Paul Ryan Ends the Year with an Omni-Bust – Jail Break Is next

By Daniel Horowitz. It started in September with passage of the original bill to bust the budget caps and raise the debt ceiling for the remainder of the Obama presidency. Then it was the bill to reauthorize federally-mandated testing under No Child Left Behind for another five years. After that, it was the $65 billion highway bailout bill.

Moving on to immigration and our national emergency with the flood of migrants from the Middle East, Ryan promoted a phony bill on refugees. It did nothing to stop Obama’s refugee resettlement scheme and his violation of coordinating with states, as mandated by law. In doing so, Ryan blocked all amendments from conservatives to strengthen the bill, even though he promised an open process as Speaker. Finally, he promoted a visa bill related to Europe, which did absolutely nothing to address the core of the problem with the Visa Waiver Program, much less focus on the real problem – mass migration and refugees directly from the Middle East.

On Friday, Paul Ryan closed the loop by passing an Omnibus bill, which funds all of Obama’s priorities for the remainder of the year. Here’s a list of the top 11 Christmas presents Paul Ryan’s omnibus gave President Obama.

The only provision addressing immigration actually quadruples the number of low-skilled workers brought in under the H2-b program, ignoring the cries of Americans while doing the bidding of the K Street lobbyists. And once again, every single proposed amendment was blocked from consideration on the floor of the House.

Every one of the aforementioned bills passed with either unanimous or super-majority support from Nancy Pelosi’s Democrats. The Omnibus bill was no different. It passed with more Democrats than Republicans, garnering the support of all but 18 of Pelosi’s troops.

Nonetheless, it is still quite revealing that roughly 60% of Republicans supported a complete giveaway to Obama; a Christmas present that was jubilantly lauded by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It is evident that a majority of Republicans believe so strongly in the cult of Paul Ryan’s personality that, unlike with John Boehner, they are willing to follow him off the cliff into the political abyss.

So what does Paul Ryan have planned for next year? Did he “clear the decks” and capitulate this year so that he can be free to fight Obama’s fundamental transformation next year?

Not a chance.

Ryan told Meet the Press he plans to focus on common ground next year. And as Chuck Schumer already made clear, common ground means giving the Democrats what they want on the most critical issues of our time.

“I think what we will probably try to do is where we can get things done, where we can find common ground without compromising principles, get those things done. Make sure that government works.”

And guess which issue was first out of Ryan’s mouth? Criminal justice “reform”!

Thus, Ryan’s biggest priority for next year is the same as Obama’s biggest priority for the remainder of his presidency – to release as many violent criminals from prison as possible. Lost in the news cycle on Friday was news that Obama plans to commute the sentences of 95 additional drug felons. And as is always the case, a number of them are not merely drug felons but criminals convicted for armed robbery and firearms violations. You read that correctly: at a time when Obama plans to clamp down on law-abiding gun owners, he is releasing violent gun felons from prison. And yet, instead of stopping this dangerous policy, Ryan and the Republicans plan to codify it into law.

Don’t you just wish the Democrats had their version of Paul Ryan leading them in the House and Senate? (For more from the author of “Paul Ryan Ends the Year with an Omni-Bust – Jail Break Is next” please click HERE)

    It is always “NEXT YEAR” Well, next year, hopefully The Donald will be in charge and this should upset the status quo….Ryan is a traitor to everyone he is supposed to be representing….he promised to protect us, instead threw us under the bus…..down will all the RINOS and Democratic communists.

  • Nels

    When we elect Republicans, we give the Democrats a majority in the House and Senate.

    This sort of thing is where the term cuckservative comes from: Ryan and the rest of the dead elephant party inner circle get conservatives to vote Republican, so they can cuckold the conservatives who were fool enough to think that the Republican party has anything to do with conserving or restoring our traditional culture.

    Vote Democrat, get an anti-American, mohammedan-loving communist. Vote Republican, get an anti-American, mohammedan-loving communist.

    I may vote Trump, or vote third party, but I certainly won’t vote for an anti-American, mohammedan-loving communist of any party.

    well pauli your folks at home, remember them? They voted for you and they are not very happy with you now…

    I think bills as large as this should go through a states process first and then get approved by the Congress should 3/4th of the states approve of it first. The idea that Congress write a bill and then approve the bill they themselves create is so outrageous that these people are using our Constitution against us. Article V Convention of States is our only way out of this foolishness.

    • Paul

      You are correct, Larry. Too bad our nation will collapse quicker than Article V can be implemented.

    I do not know how one American citizen, businessman or woman or elected official with half a brain can stand down one day longer and allow this administration and congress to continue to operate under such great deception and deceit and corruption.

    I don’t understand how we can let a few people destroy this whole nation.

    The continued illegal activities, misappropriation of millions of dollars, fraud, malfeasance, treason must stop. And the list of crimes is long.

    Our founding fathers would have removed these traitors and criminals post haste and started over. They will never stop until the american people send a strong message.

    Defund DC. And arrest them all. We the people own this country not Washington DC. They don’t even have authority to be in our states or own state land.

    The Constitution delegated few, enumerated powers to the Federal Government, reserving all remaining powers to the States and the people. Thus, powers of the Federal were the exception.

    Our federal republic was created by joint action of the several states. It has been gradually perverted into a socialist machine for federal control in the domestic affairs of the states.

    The federal government has no authority to mandate policies relating to state education, natural resources, transportation, private business, housing, health care, ad infinitum.

    This is a copy of an article posted elsewhere. The writer requested that we repost everywhere;
    House Speaker Paul Ryan, a veritable turncoat who sold out
    every conservative in America last week when he signed off on a $1.1-trillion omnibus bill that handed President Barack Obama
    everything he wanted, might be on the verge of suffering some major payback for his treachery.

    Writing for Crows Nest Politics, Ken Crow, former leader of Tea Party of America, urged his many followers to begin searching for a local “candidate willing to primary Paul Ryan in the 1st District.”

    “All patriots should contact your group’s leaders and begin organizing nationwide to put down this RINO in order that he is not re-elected to his seat in Wisconsin,” Crow wrote. “The Badger State patriots need to begin soliciting your State Senators, high-profile business leaders or the State Legislators who reside within the 1st District of Wisconsin.”

    Moreover, Crow’s poignant message got picked up by The Gateway Pundit and Fox News and eventually made its way onto the Facebook page for the Wisconsin Tea Party.

    This means, in effect, that the movement to get rid of backstabber Paul Ryan has officially begun. In fact, someone already set up a “Primary Paul Ryan” Facebook page that had already accumulated over 18,000 followers by Monday morning.

    As Crow pointed out, however, whoever steps up to the plate will need a lot of money to spar against Ryan, who reportedly commands at least $5 million in campaign funds.

    “This candidate will need a truckload of cash to make this an actual race,” Crow explained. “This means we all need to reach deep and find an extra $10 or 20.00 bill to send to this candidate. If 200 or
    300,000 of us do this, now we have a very real chance of knocking off Ryan in the primary and winning the general election.”

    Republicansin Wisconsin have until April 5, 2016, to find a suitable candidate and raise enough money to take down backstabber Paul Ryan. We most certainly wish them the best of luck.

    Wonder how Ryan feels knowing the people are discusted with him? Wonder how he feels knowing he isn’t any better than Boehner? Ryan is a traitor to the people along without the other RINO’s who voted for this. And Rubio who was a no show, AGAIN, so you can’t blame him on the vote. Well, Rubio we already know your a Est.Rep.RINO.
