Wisconsin Gets a Second Chance to Put ‘America First’ and Give Paul Ryan the Boot

Published

on

Paul Nehlen, a visionary ‘America First’ conservative, has announced that he will be challenging Paul Ryan for a second time — in an attempt to finally put a stop to the speaker’s relentless obstruction of the Trump administration.

In an interview with Big League Politics, Nehlen explained that he only had four months to campaign against Ryan during his previous bid. During that time, he was laser focused on stopping the controversial Trans Pacific Partnership — and though that mission was successful, he was unable to fully introduce himself and his policies to the public.

“With 14 months, I’ll have a lot of time to tell people about myself and how I have brought back jobs from China and Mexico,” Nehlen said of his 2018 bid. “I am absolutely an ‘America First’ candidate.”

“I was in charge of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The reason they tasked me with that role was that I was an internal turnaround specialist. When we bought a new company, domestic or foreign, I was the guy who ‘rode the broken bicycle while fixing it’ so to speak,” Nehlen explained. “I’ve run businesses in the U.S, Canada, Mexico, China, and have brought jobs back to the U.S. more profitably in every circumstance.”

He is widely credited with pressuring Ryan to finally oppose the TPP — which would have been absolutely devastating to manufacturing jobs here in the US, according to experts.

During his first campaign, Nehlen was praised by Trump for his support in a Twitter exchange that took place on August 1 — after Ryan had begrudgingly announced his endorsement of Trump.

When asked if he believes that the president will openly support his campaign this time around, Nehlen wasn’t too hopeful — but believes that he should.

“I believe it will be difficult for President Trump to overtly support my candidacy, but that’s what we elected him to do. President Trump needs to support candidates that will support him from Congress!” Nehlen asserted.

Currently, Trump is more popular than Ryan in his own district — a fact that will surely help the political newcomer.

Nehlen explained that he was working on finding someone to run as a replacement for Ryan before Trump had infamously come down the escalator in Trump Tower and announced his candidacy.

Since his last campaign, Nehlen has written a book about the importance of running candidates who support the ‘America First’ agenda across the nation and produced a documentary about radical Islam’s global invasion.

“Ryan has been leveraging the Trump Administration to do whatever he wants, but he is unwilling to help pass anything that the president has been working for,” Nehlen said, expressing his frustration with the Speaker “holding ‘America First’ hostage.”

Nehlen admits that he was once a donor to Ryan through the Wisconsin GOP, but unlike Paul, he supports a secure border, tighter immigration laws, and a full repeal of Obamacare. His political views are closely aligned to that of the administration, and would he would like to see the Republican-majority Congress working for — not against — those principals.

“I believe we should enforce existing immigration laws and secure the border with an impenetrable, defended wall from the Pacific to the Gulf. Ryan on the other hand believes that existing immigration laws need to be changed. Ryan will never say amnesty but he believes in a path to citizenship that is different to existing immigration laws,” Nehlen said. “Ryan is also an advocate for H1-B and other visa programs where I am not.”

Nehlen has repeatedly blasted Ryan for running a “dangerous refugee resettlement racket,” as he has been consistently working to increase the influx of refugees that were flooding the nation under the Obama administration.

“Contrary to what President Trump has proposed with tax reform, Ryan and his henchman Kevin Brady has been pressing for the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT),” Nehlen said. “Ryan is holding the President’s America First agenda hostage now with tax reform over the BAT, in the same way he did with Obamacare.”

The congressional hopeful explained that “Ryan funded a boatload of awful things in the 2015 Omnibus: dangerous refugee resettlement, Palestinian payments that are used to reward terrorists’ families, abortion via Planned Parenthood, etc.”

“Ryan funded all of those same things again in the most recent Omnibus and when challenged on funding Planned Parenthood, Ryan said that the proper place to defund it was with his awful RyanCare and RyanCare 2.0,” Nehlen added. “He should have defunded PP in the budget, along with the Palestinian payments, along with the refugee resettlement racket.”

When asked how people who may not be in his district, but would like to see Ryan defeated, can help, Nehlen explained that taking down the establishment will require “money and manpower.”

“Paul Ryan spent $10.6 million to beat me, I don’t need that much to beat him — but I will need money. I’m not Trump and can’t independently finance my own campaign,” Nehlen said. He added that people sharing information about his campaign on social media will be a massive help for getting his name out there.

Nehlen wants it to be clear that he is a conservative all of the time, not just when it is convenient and time to campaign. He has vowed that unlike career politicians, he will fight for the people of his Wisconsin district — not for DC special interests.

“I have a message for Speaker Ryan: The American people are not done fighting for President Trump’s good agenda. That’s why I am announcing my second challenge to Paul Ryan for the nomination in Wisconsin’s first congressional district,” Nehlen said in his campaign announcement.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

on

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
