WEAK: House Speaker Paul Ryan Says Mitt Romney Will be New ‘Standard Bearer’ For GOP

Published

on

What is it about the GOP establishment in Congress? They simply do not understand that ordinary Americans have rejected their decades-long weak capitulations to Democrats. The people did this by electing President Donald J. Trump, a Republican nationalist.

“It’s great that he’s coming and I think he feels a sense of civic duty,” said outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan regarding Mitt Romney’s election to the U.S. Senate. “I think with John McCain passing, for example, Mitt believes that there’s a role for him in our party in being you know a statesman and a standard-bearer in our party.”

Ryan spoke with the Washington Post on Thursday

Ryan and Romney ran together on a losing presidential ticket against former president Barack H. Obama and vice president Joseph R. Biden in 2012. The pair literally stopped campaigning during the last two weeks of the election cycle, handing the race to the Democrats. Romney was recently elected to the Senate in Utah.

Ryan has become known as a do-nothing during his time in Congress, and Romney’s biggest win in politics was bringing universal healthcare to the state of Massachusetts when he was Governor there.

“I would look to him as a leader who will be a standard-bearer of our principles,” Ryan repeated in the interview.

What exactly are “our” principles? Calling ourselves conservatives whilst failing to conserve anything? Pretending that we oppose leftist ideals but caving to them anyway and playing golf with them in the Hamptons on the weekends? Or do we believe in closed borders, small and honest government, the rule of law, the right to life and American exceptionalism?

One faction of the Republican party – Trump’s GOP – is working to bring us the latter. Ryan and Romney’s faction will only ever deliver the former. But by all means, let’s let Mitt be the “standard-bearer.”

Spineless Ryan criticized Republicans for “tribalism,” which, to ordinary Americans, is simply fighting for what we believe in instead of rolling over to liberals at every turn.

“It’s a little bit of a two-way street,” Ryan said. “The tribalism is just getting out of control and I see…the 21st century business model of getting hits and clicks and eyeballs on cable news, on websites has created this incentive structure and marketplace where polarization sells.”

IT’S REAL: Four New Jersey Democrats Charged With Election Fraud in Mail-In Ballot Scheme

They’re all Democrats.

Published

on

Four men, two of whom are Democratic city council members, have been charged with running a voter fraud operation in the town of Paterson, New Jersey.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges of mail-in voting fraud, election fraud, and illegal possession of mail-in ballots against Michael Jackson, Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique, and Abu Rayzen.

Jackson is an active city councilman, while Mendez is a councilman-elect. Khalique is the brother of another Paterson city councilman, and Rayzen is a campaign operative for Khalique’s brother, Shahin Khalique.

The charges allege that Jackson took it upon himself to pick up completed mail-in ballots from voters in the city and delivered them to the Passaic County Board of Elections. Jackson failed to disclose to the board of elections that he delivered ballots for that he’s a city council member, and in one case, a ballot that he picked up that was unsealed was delivered to the election authorities sealed and completed.

Mendez is also accused of the same form of dishonest ballot harvesting, declining to reveal that he was a candidate for office when dropping off mail-in ballots. He’s also charged with falsifying and tampering with records.

Although they’re rarely enforced, New Jersey laws criminalizing election fraud have strict penalties, and it’s possible that the men could face prison sentences of up to ten years if they’re convicted of the second-degree felonies of which they’re charged.

A state investigation into the recent Paterson city election spurred the criminal charges, with AG Grewal revealing that 20% of the ballots filed in the election were fraudulent.
