Congress

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.”

Nehlen, a successful entrepreneur for a heavily engineered product Fortune 500 SPX Corporation, has run successful businesses all across the globe and knows the importance of bilateral trade deals that prioritize the needs of American workers.

“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.

Week After U.S. Senate Nomination, Virginia Delegation Silent on Corey Stewart

Published

on

A full week after Corey Stewart won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Virginia, earning the right to take on  incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), elected officials at the highest level of the Virginia GOP have failed to announce their support for the candidate.

In fact, they have actively avoided the question, and predictably, Democrats have seized on the opportunity to make them look foolish.

GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) dodged American Bridge’s questions a few days ago:

Big League Politics reached out to Comstock personally, and to her office. Neither returned a request for comment.

Alleged Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-02) would not talk either:

“Reach out to my office,” Taylor said.

Big League Politics did just that. Timothys Foster, Talyor’s spokesman, did not return our email request for comment.

Republican Rep. Dave Brat failed to express support for Stewart too, though he came close.

“Judeo-Christian values, that’s what I’m running on,” said Brat. “I’ll support anyone who shares those values.”

Brat did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment either.

Stewart was embroiled in controversy during his primary run after the neo-liberal website Daily Wire ran a dishonest hit piece on him, claiming that he was an anti-Semite. There is no proof to support the allegation, other than Stewart’s support for Paul Nehlan, who made anti-semitic remarks. At the time of the questionable comments, Nehlan had the support of most of the GOP. He has since wholly denounced by the Stewart and the rest of the party.

For their part, the Republican Party of Virginia expressed support for Stewart via Twitter. When Stewart appeared on CNN for an interview with host Chris Cuomo, the liberal anchor tried to peg Stewart as a racist. Stewart replied by pointing out that Cuomo’s family has long been tied to anti-Semitism.

Former RPV executive Shaun Kenney denounced the party’s support.

“It’s not just eccentric, it’s offensive,” he said. “In a previous era, had a member of RPV staff issued comments like that, I would have fired them on the spot.”

The morally superior virtue-signaling will get the Virginia GOP nowhere.  Making false allegations of racism is a decades-old strategy used by Democrats against Republicans. They make the same claims against nearly every GOP candidate running for an important office.

But the establishment GOP, no matter how many times the Democrats have played the race card, still have not figured out the left’s tricks.

It is time to stand with Corey Stewart. Anything less is de facto support for Hillary Clinton sycophant Kaine, a hard-leftist who has failed Virginians in his tenure as a Senator.

Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee

Published

on

A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.

According to the letter that was obtained by CNN,  Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”

Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”

The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.

Big League Politics reported:

Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.

This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:

“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!

Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

BLP Passage Ends.

Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.

“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”

Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

Oversized: Rosie O’Donnell Makes Potentially Illegal Campaign Donations

Published

on

According to a New York Post analysis of campaign filings, Rosie O’Donnell made illegally oversized donations to five federal Democrat candidates.

“Nothing nefarious,” the washed up comedian and Donald Trump critic said. “I was not choosing to over donate.”

But O’Donnell regularly broke the Federal Election Commission’s rules that limit donations to $2,700 per candidate per election campaign. The limit is applies separately to primaries, run-offs, and general elections, with each considered a new race.

“If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she said. “I don’t look to see who I can donate most to … I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”

But intent is not an element of the crime, and O’Donnell’s blind faith that politicians would simply return her money if she over-donated is either pathetically naive or a lie to cover for herself.

O’Donnell donated $4,700 to Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in his race against Judge Roy Moore. Jones won the race by

She also gave $3,700 to Rep. Conor Lamb, (D-PA), $2,950 to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), $4,200 to Lauren Underwood, a current Illinois congressional candidate, and $3,450 to Omar Vaid, an outsider congressional candidate from Staten Island, NY.

“My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing Trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed,” she said.

Don’t worry plebeians, O’Donnell quells her anxiety by throwing bundles of cash at Democrats and breaking the law. Perhaps someone at the FEC can alert her that there’s medicine for that. And people still wonder why the political left is so out of touch with the average American.

According to campaign finance lawyer Jan Witold Baran, donors are rarely fined for excess contributions and then only if they are hiding the donations from the recipients. She said that campaigns generally are not penalized for isolated contributions over a limit.

Candidates who receive excess donations are allowed simply to roll the excess funds over to their next campaign.

In effect, the law is useless as it is seldom enforced. Leave it to the D.C. swamp.

“I also maxed out to Cynthia Nixon,” O’Donnell told the Post. “And I loathe Jeannine Pirro.”
