Media Chatter: House Speaker Paul Ryan Is The Establishment’s Next Challenger to Face Trump

House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% may become the GOP establishment’s 2016 candidate who can snatch the nomination or the leadership of the GOP away from pro-American populist Donald Trump, according to D.C. media chatter.

But the move — if it happens — may be too late.

Any fight between the increasingly popular Trump and the decreasingly popular Ryan would mark a last-ditch effort by the GOP’s establishment-business-wing to deny any political power to its conservative voters, likely splitting the party just before the elections that will decide which party gets to control the White House and the U.S. Senate. It might also damage Ryan’s long-term career plans, which are already being undermined by his unpopular policies and his complete failure in the 2016 budget negotiations, despite his support in the establishment media.

The media suggestions for Ryan suddenly appeared Sunday, Jan 10.

In a Daily Beast article about the media’s desire for a political fight at the GOP convention, veteran reporter Jeff Greenfield casually suggested the GOP’s establishment might sabotage Trump at the last moment by using the convention to give the nomination to Ryan, who was defeated in 2012 when he ran as the vice-president candidate with Gov. Mitt Romney.

“If party elders were to meet behind closed doors and deliver the nomination to, say, House Speaker Paul Ryan, that would qualify as a ‘brokered’ outcome,” Greenfield wrote Jan. 10.

Tai Kopan, a writer for CNN, floated Ryan as the media-backed silver bullet against Trump during a Jan. 10 article about a weekend event that showcased Ryan’s much-touted efforts to win more votes from lower-income Americans.

In rare joint appearances, six Republican presidential candidates gathered here on Saturday to talk about ways to address poverty in America, speaking to voters in the crucial early primary state and beyond about why the GOP has the best answers.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) 88% were moderators, and they questioned former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% in small groups about how to address systemic problems at the Kemp Forum on Expanding Opportunity….

Please!!!    Used Car Salesmen are way, way above this Trash!!!     Most anything is!!  I think I would align his character more like Sean Penn..................at least,he's an honest Commie!!

He needs to shave. 

I think he is a closet muslim and just staring to come out.  He is another one of the muslim commie halfbreeds boys.

Pretty Girlie-Looking, too.  When will get some real men in charge again.  Must be an enormous shortage of Testicular Fortitude.

Paul Ryan has already show his self to the country selling it out to the Obama budget that pays for illegals to have food homes and medical care. Paul Ryan supporting the Florida child should lower his scores putting Trump and Cruz on top. Rubio and Paul Ryan are One World Order supporters. They both want to remove the borders and bring in more illegals.

The best way to address poverty in the US is too bring back manufacturing and too close the door on poorly negotiated 'free trade' agreements...  Put America back to work by  providing meaningful labor for the middle class and those on welfare... create government policy that encourages the rapid expansion of our nations Industrial and energy sectors.

America is not obligated to support jobs in the third world... by lowering our tariffs and permitting unfair and unsafe labor practices and wages to rule the world market place. Make no mistake global corporations are leveraging substandard wages, environmental and workers safety, to achieve huge unearned profit... Profits derived from taking advantage of poverty and suffering in the third world... rather than by adding value to the market place.

It's time to regulate the world market place... to ensure that profits are made the old fashioned way, by adding real value to the goods and services sold; not by leveraging the disparities found in world markets.

We can certainly never accomplish these goals if the TPP succeeds.

Neil you are so correct .. there are too few politicians we can trust anymore .. and for Ryan .. his muslimness is showing !

Excellent... I especially like the caption... Democracy is too important to leave to chance... says it all.  This needs to go viral and copies should be sent to our elected officials... with a note.  Don't expect us to accept rigged elections.  Clean up the voter registration rolls and require citizenship and ID to vote.

This man is a National disgrace, he's turned his back on America, he is without Honor, and a despicable Liar, an Opportunist, getting ahead by any manner possible. I cannot believe he will sentence his Children, as well as Mine, to a life of Communism. Oh, they call it Liberal, Progressive etc, but it is Karl Marx, all dressed up to look like something nice. It is not nice, we're looking at a future with Maniacs, in charge of Nuclear Weapons, and with Obama financing them, they're coming. "Syrian" Refugees as a "Population Bomb" a Welfare America. Paul Ryan, go die!

ALERT ALERT

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
