I wonder why?

Rumors are flying that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will resign soon:
Nevada's 2nd U.S. House District Rep. Mark Amodei, R-Carson City, said on Nevada Newsmakers Monday that Rep. Paul Ryan may soon resign as Speaker of the U.S. House.

Amodei said he was repeating a rumor that's around Capitol Hill.

"The rumor mill is that Paul Ryan is getting ready to resign in the next 30 to 60 days and that Steve Scalise will be the new Speaker," Amodei said.
That is certainly interesting, in light of other rumors we have been hearing.

About Ryan:

If that weaselly geek isn't thoroughly corrupt, bought and paid for, then I'm a Chinese jet pilot.

I was in the Army with a guy that was in college with Paul Ryan. He said he was an arrogant snob back then, too. He only hung out with the "In crowd" just like silly high school cliques.

In my decades of education and work experience, one of the many things I've noticed is that the establishment manipulative sociopath career climber types have an uncanny ability to identify and network with each other.

Well, at this point, why wouldn't Ryan resign? He has achieved every policy he wanted, and just as importantly for him, he stopped Trump from doing anything that Trump's populist-nationalist voters wanted Trump to do (first, last, and always -- The Wall).

As a capper, Ryan has put in place, via his Omnibus, a budget that proactively ties Trump's hands from doing anything that Trump's populist-nationalist voters wanted him to do (again, The Wall) until the forthcoming elections, at which point the incoming Democrat congress will take over from where Ryan has left off and continue to prevent Trump from achieving any populist-nationalist objectives (once again, The Wall).

I never would have believed it back in 2016, if someone had told me then that this is how it would end up, but whether the final tally is taken now, or (if Ryan resigns at a later date) if it is taken in the future, it will be counted as a complete rout of Trump (or shall we say, of populist-nationalist Trump) by Ryan.

Admittedly, it was at least as much the King Federal Judges that beat Trump as it was Ryan's congress, but still, it ends up with Ryan > Trump.

Unutterably horrible. And I'd never have expected it.

I'm really not sure. What I hope is that Trump has a Really Clever Plan, he's going to pull out all the stops come October, and preside over a Red Wave. That's what I hope for, because the alternative is painful.

The other scenario, the one I'm afraid is probably coming, is that Trump fails to work a miracle, and the mid-term elections are marked by universal apathy toward the Republican Party, followed by that party's collapse and death.

As you should know, Lazarus, to be resurrected you have to die first. No fun. Maybe the new party will be ready by 2020, and run Trump as its candidate. I'm thinking it takes longer to organize the new party, and we get the revolution in 2024. That's kind of a downer, because it implies a lot of hurt between now and then.

Paul Ryan is ideological and determined NeverTrumper. What could he do to give Trump one last kick before leaving the Speaker position?

He could decide to claim the moral high ground and say he cannot stay in the same party with Donald Trump, so he will resign and run for the same House seat as a Democrat. The numerous Wisconsin Democrats would like that.

He probably knows if he stays in the Republican party, he will be primaried out of the nomination in a few months. If he makes a big anti-Trump excuse out of switching parties, the Democrats back home will send him back to Washington...happy to have a good principled Liberal with Federal experience.

Amodei is a douchebag. I live in NV and he's a typical attorney-type who has no real principles. Just paid to advocate a position and that position is usually geared towards continuing the cheap labor conveyor belt from Mexico. Having said that I hope he's right and Ryan is on the way out. There's always hope for a Trumpian type to take his place right?

Blogger Garuna March 27, 2018 12:21 AM  

Racism is bad. Good people know this. Which is why every church in America preaches against the vile sin of racism. Jesus (a Jewish immigrant) taught this.

Yes, goyim. Our child rapist churchian preachers agree that it is GOOD when foreigners rape your daughters. It is also GOOD when they blow them up or run them over with a truck. And it is extra GOOD when they vote to put men in your daughter's bathroom.

Opposing all this GOODness of cultural enrichment is the vilest of sins.

Look how hard UtahCuckservative is fighting us to prove his True Cuckservative(TM) credentials. $100 says he's never fought this hard when our daughters are killed and raped by hostile foreigners. Another $100 says he won't fight this hard when guns are confiscated and free speech is eradicated.

He values his True Cuckservative(TM) credentials more than his country and even his daughters. A truly contemptible creature.

UtahConservative an obvious parody.

There are two problems with trying to parody either the Left or Cuckservatives. One, they're both beyond parody, Muggeridge's Law is against you. And two, because of that, there's a good chance people will think you're serious which could mean...

Wok-wok-wok-wok-wok-wok

Well if we get into a shooting war with Iran and Russia guess which place is right up there nearly at the top of Russia's places to shoot missiles at first? That's right the NSA facility in Utah.

Wait - I thought the Russians were the bad guys, but now you say they're on our side? I'm so confused.

I'm going with the other skeptics here.

The "Resigning Ryan" rumor is on it's umpteenth iteration. I put about as much stock in it as the "military tribunals" post in which Q over-extended and outed himself as a clever LARPer.

Beau and others here have helped me when other pastors and churches turned me away - the American church is not the church we once knew. My glasses this month were paid in full by my eye doctor and he sent me home with eye drops, that is an easter blessing.

Anyhow I hope Paul to Mitch to red and blue waves all fail to rid horrid leaders from these foul DC streets.

Don't accept their frame. Agree and amplify. "Yes, I'm racist. So what?"

I thought that as well, but I sometimes go a bit further.

We are all racists. There is not a human alive that does not notice and act on the race of other people --- especially the American democrats. AA and quotas are racist you know.

What ever you do, don't ever ever ever call them racist back. It's not just useless, it's counterproductive.

How about: Racist? It depends. It's racist if you're a crybaby. That's because everything is racist when you're a crybaby. But if you're not a crybaby then it's not racist.

How can an ethnic Hebrew, born in Israel to Hebrew parents, be an immigrant? Grasping at straws are we?

Blogger Peter Gent March 27, 2018 8:23 AM  

By the way, if after over 300 years in Egypt, the Israelites refused to become Egyptians, why do you think they can ever become Americans now matter how long they are here, especially when they have their homeland to return to? Remember, Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt to avoid persecution but returned as soon as they were able. They all have to return, because they are all able.

@115 The holy family's flight to Egypt, perhaps? Amusingly, for the Alt-Right "He had to go back."

A better counter would be the admonition "When I was hungry you fed Me" though it still doesn't get you to Bible-mandated mass immigration. That one's a head-scratcher, even if you think immigration can be good for a country.

Blogger David-2 March 27, 2018 7:46 PM  

Ryan's first budget under Trump was the Democrat's. Because no time to change it. Ryan's second budget was also the Democrat's. Because that's the way he rolls.

Don't forget that for a highly-praised policy wonk that when it came time to repeal Obamacare on his watch - well, wait, not repeal, but replace (when did they campaign on that?) - it turns out that after 8 years of hard core policy wonking in the minority he actually had no bill at all to replace it with. (Never mind that repeal would have been like one paragraph long.)

But: Two democrat budgets and the minimal possible done on Obamacare after a major screw up: His mission is successful.

Naturally. The admonition doesn't read "...When I was hungry, you got someone to point a gun at someone else, rob them of their hard-earned money, and, after a variety of middle-class mediocrities skimmed off their cut, used it to feed Me" now does it?
