Looks like the Donald Trump vengeance machine has been unleashed on Paul "RINO" Ryan in retaliation for his refusal to support the GOP front runner.
Breitbart.com reports: "House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen said of Ryan on Saturday, 'He has betrayed us all, hasn’t he? He says he’s for a secure border. Then what’s he do? He funds every dangerous immigration policy through this $1.8 trillion omnibus. What he funded was all his special interest buddies.'
"Nehlen’s comments came during an exclusive interview Saturday with Breitbart News Saturday SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon. Nehlen pointed out again that 83 percent of Ryan’s campaign donations come from D.C., not his home district: 'The vast majority comes in the form of large campaign donations from inside the D.C. Beltway. … He sold his vote. He sold his vote. The same people that are donating to his campaign want these open border initiatives. This isn’t a Free Trade deal.'"
Yeah, that pretty much says it all. I don't know who this guy is but he's refreshingly outspoken and candid. Plus the fact that in "normal" circumstances, a sitting Speaker of the House shouldn't even be facing a primary at all.
"Nehlen also hit Ryan for bad-mouthing the presumptive GOP nominee, given his position as Speaker. 'He is bad-mouthing the presumptive nominee. It’s embarrassing; that’s what it is.' Added Nehlen, “I’m calling out the enemy. On your show this morning, I’m calling out the enemy. He is Speaker Paul Ryan.”
RINO resistance to Trump's inevitability seems to be cracking and crumbling as the horror of eight prospective years of the Hildebeest sets in, but that may be deceptive. There are rumors that they're trying to air-lift in some loser in a suit as a third party candidate to rob Trump of the presidency in the general election.
Or they may simply have Trump murdered.
But it is refreshing to see some active resistance of any kind against the RINOs and the system itself shaping up. One thing about the 2016 election: it may well leave the two-party system in this country a smoking ruin. "A consummation devoutly to be wished," as Shakespeare would say.
