There are few people in Washington who more perfectly represent everything that is wrong with that corrupt city than Paul Ryan. For years, he has fooled Conservatives into thinking that he was one of us. When he was selected by Mitt Romney to be his running mate, many Conservatives cheered. Since that time however, people have gotten to know Mr. Ryan a lot better, and few who care about the Constitution and the preservation of our republic like what they have learned.
Paul Ryan has been, for all intents and purposes, one of Barack Obama's chief accomplices in the Congress. This is certainly true since Ryan became Speaker. At every turn, Ryan has twisted arms, manipulated House rules, and done everything within his power to pass Obama's agenda. He cut a deal to lock in Obama's spending and balloon the national debt. He has done nothing to roll back any aspect of ObamaCare. And most appallingly, he has colluded with Obama to keep our southern border wide-open and to encourage never-ending waves of illegal immigration.
It is outrageous therefore, that Donald Trump's Vice-Presidential running mate, Mike Pence, would endorse Paul Ryan for reelection. Especially given that his opponent, who has a real shot at defeating Ryan, is running as a proud Conservative whose positions align much more closely with Trump than do Ryan's.
Obviously, there are behind-the-scenes politics at play here to which I am not privy. But isn't that precisely what we have come to detest? Isn't opposition to this Establishment Republican game exactly what led to Donald Trump's meteoric rise in the first place?
I don't know what political calculation led to Pence's endorsement of one of the most pathetic excuses for a Republican there is, and I don't much care. We were supposed to be throwing off the inside-the-beltway political corruption of the Establishment Republican Party. Mike Pence endorsed Paul Ryan for one of two reasons: either he is not a Conservative at all, or he is an Establishment political hack. Either way, it's not good.
For those who truly want to set this country on a new path, I suggest you ignore Mike Pence's advice and do what you can to support Paul Ryan's opponent, Paul Nehlen. Here is a link to his website:

After watching the 1984 movie "Revenge of the Nerds," former President Bill Clinton was inspired to help his wife's struggling campaign by offering his services to raise money.
His idea was to do his best Stan Gable impression, and kiss any women willing to contribute a dollar to Hillary's campaign. Additionally, as a good Liberal, indigent women and those in possession of Obama Phones could make out with the former President for free - this is a Socialist country after all.
Disclaimer: The foregoing is speculation.

Putative Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is making it increasingly clear every day that he has more in common with Barack Obama than he does with Conservatives.
The latest example in which Ryan and Obama are working together to the detriment of the American People is the proposed bill to bail out the Socialist territory of Puerto Rico. As one would imagine, Conservatives are opposed to this boondoggle, and have properly characterized it as a "bailout."
The Obama administration is siding with Speaker Rep. Paul on how to properly identify the Puerto Rico rescue legislation currently under consideration by the House of Representatives.
Conservative House members drew Ryan’s ire after describing the legislation as a “bailout bill” for Puerto Rico, something that the Speaker’s office has worked to tamp down.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called for Congress to pass bipartisan legislation to assist Puerto Rico, allowing them to restructure their debt. He also joined Ryan’s effort to denounce any attempt to brand the bill as a bailout.
“Just to be clear, because there does appear to be some misinformation that’s being spread about this, this is not a bailout,” he said during the White House press briefing. “I’ve said many times the administration doesn’t support a bailout of Puerto Rico. We don’t. We have never and we don’t now."

The Beatles' former minimally-talented drummer and irrelevant left-wing hack has cancelled a scheduled concert in Cary, North Carolina because he is very upset that men pretending to be women cannot urinate in public women's rest rooms.
I have no idea why I am even bothering to post about this. Nobody cares, this is Ringo Star after all. Besides, aren't we all just a little bit bored with left-wing "celebrities" trying to get noticed with phony outrage over nonsense?
Anyway, here is an excerpt about this really really important story:
Former Beatles’ drummer Ringo Starr announced Wednesday that he will cancel a June 18 show in Cary in opposition to House Bill 2.
Following on the heels of Bruce Springsteen, who canceled an April 10 show at the Greensboro Coliseum in opposition to the law, Starr released a statement saying he would no longer play a scheduled June 18 show at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
“I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love,” he said.

Self-proclaimed Conservative, the liberal Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, is out pandering to LGBT activists by voicing his opposition to North Carolina's common sense public restroom law.
In some twisted logic only known to liberal Republican Governor sons of retired mailmen, Mr. (or is the "Mr." prefix a new form of gender discrimination?) Kasich believes that his support of allowing mentally disturbed gender transformists to use whatever public restroom they wish to at any particular moment in time will help him secure the Republican nomination for President.
Anyway, there you have it. The latest from Mr. Conservative.
John Kasich says he wouldn't have signed North Carolina's so-called bathroom bill shielding businesses from anti-gay lawsuits and requiring transgender people to use restrooms corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.
In an interview to be aired on CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday, the Ohio governor called the legislation too potentially "contentious."
"I believe that religious institutions ought to be protected and be able to be in a position of where they can live out their deeply held religious purposes," he said in remarks released Saturday.
"But when you get beyond that it gets to be a tricky issue. And tricky is not the right word, but it can become a contentious issue."

Just when you think that John Kasich could not be a more worthless, detestable RINO and egregious waste of oxygen, he goes and proves that you've underestimated him.
The son of a mailman, who has absolutely no mathematical path to the Republican nomination, now says that if the laws of the universe were turned upside-down and he somehow managed to become the GOP nominee, he would consider choosing a Democrat as his Vice Presidential running mate.
Yes my friends, he really is this stupid.
From the Washington Times:
Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he isn't willing to serve as anyone's vice president, but he indicated party affiliation would not matter to him when choosing his own running mate.
After losing the Arizona primary and trailing a candidate who is no longer running for president, Kasich hit the campaign trail in Wisconsin and told voters only he could beat the Democrats in November.
He ruled out the possibility of serving with any GOP nominee, but would not oppose putting a Democrat near the top of the Republican ticket himself in November.
"I'm going to be nobody's vice president, OK?" Kasich said, interrupting a questioner at a town hall in Wauwatosa. "I will not be anybody's vice president. Just so you know."
The questioner then asked whether the Ohio governor would consider selecting a Democrat as his vice presidential running mate. Kasich avoided immediately answering the question before indicating he would not rule out working with a Democrat.
"If you're going to bring somebody over they need to know what you're about. And they can't spend their time trying to pick at you and undermine you because, frankly, we don't have enough time to do it," Kasich said. "Just because someone happens to be a Democrat doesn't mean they're disqualified. President Obama, he had his secretary of defense, Bob Gates, a Republican. And I think Bob did a fantastic job for him."

Our Dear Leader is in the midst of his "historic" trip to Cuba. In between staged events in which he makes clear his devotion to Marxism and his affinity for Communist dictators, he also attended a baseball game with Raul Castro. No, not one of the race-baiting Democrat twins from San Antonio, I'm talking about the barbaric thug who continues to oppress the Cuban People.
Seeing Obama on television enjoying the game with his ideological soul mate Raul, I was reminded of the early years of the Obama Presidency when we were routinely treated to stories about Obama's prowess as an athlete. As was oft-reported, Obama is the most athletic President in history, don't you know. Therefore, in his honor, I thought I would share a video of a previous Obama visit to a baseball game during which he proved, beyond all doubt, that he is indeed the most athletic President in history!

Mailman spawn, and delusional nut, John Kasich suggests that Ted Cruz should drop out of the Presidential race. Yes, despite the fact that Kasich has only won one state (his home state of which he is the sitting governor) it is not he, but Ted Cruz who should drop out.
For most of the campaign, Kasich was just an inconsequential joke of a candidate who would occasionally say something incoherent during a debate. However, for no other reason than he has simply not yet dropped out, he is now becoming a major problem. Not because he has any conceivable chance of being nominated, but because he is playing the spoiler for Ted Cruz, who actually does.
From The Blaze:
Republican presidential candidate John Kasich appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. During the interview, Kasich suggested to host Chuck Todd that rival Ted Cruz should drop out of the GOP race.
“Maybe Ted ought to get out because he can’t win in the fall,” the Ohio governor said.
“Maybe these people that are hot on that ought to tell him to do it. You know, they tried to tell me to get out of the race how many times, Chuck?” he asked Todd. “And now they should be thanking me for staying in because if Trump did win Ohio it would have been over.”
“If you thought your candidacy were helping Donald Trump, not hurting him, would you get out?” Todd asked.
“Chuck, I’m running for president — this isn’t a parlor game of who gets this and who gets that,” Kasich responded.
Todd challenged Kasich’s claims, saying that by recognizing a convention as his only path to the presidency, the Ohio governor is engaging in “the ultimate parlor game.”
