Ryan Wants to Screw the Country on the Way Out

2018 June 14
by bc3b

It’s no big secret that Paul Ryan is owned by the US Chamber of Commerce and the donor class. Now, in the final days of his speakership, he is doing everything possible to undermine the country for the benefit of the elites by pushing through an immigration package that grants amnesty to millions, while doing little, if anything, to solve immigration problems.

Just as Nicole Wallace and Steve Schmidt undermined the McCain campaign to gain favor with the left and gain jobs with the liberal media, Ryan is working to undermine the country to ensure he is making seven figures a year after he leaves Congress in January.

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s amnesty plan compromises on several key elements of President Donald Trump’s ‘four pillars’ immigration reform, even though Ryan says his plan would implement the President’s populist vision.

According to a “discussion draft” of the Ryan proposal, which was provided to Breitbart News:

The plan does seek a $25 billion fund for the wall, but it legalizes at least 1.8 million illegal immigrants — likely 3.6 million illegals — before any wall is built. The DACA migrants could use their legal status to apply for a green card after five years, and for citizenship later, if Congress provides the appropriated funds for the wall.

The plan trims chain migration of extended families by almost 80,000 a year, but does not set any limits on the fast-growing inflow of immigrants’ elderly parents, including the illegal-immigrant parents who brought the ‘DACA’ youths into the United States. The trimmed green cards would not be cancelled, but would be allocated to DACA migrants and to white-collar immigrants sought by business groups after the five-year waiting period.

The plan ends the visa lottery, but it preserves the current policy of giving 55,000 green cards per year to migrants — in this case, the DACA illegals — who do not have the skills which are needed to raise productivity and wages in the United States.

The Ryan plan delivers several reforms to immigration and asylum law that will close up several loopholes used by economic migrants — but it also creates new incentives for more migrants to try to get into the United States, even before the November elections.

Ryan’s amnesty plan is also coupled with a promise to provide in July another guest-worker program to the low-tech parts of the agriculture industry. That size of that expansion is undecided, but proposals by Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte would have provided the agricultural industry with roughly 800,000 guest workers, plus 40,000 workers for the meatpacking industry. The program, dubbed the H-2C visa, may be combined with a requirement that larger employers use the E-Verify system to exclude illegal immigrants from jobs.

The Ryan plan does include an option to allocate visa-lottery green cards to the DACA migrants — or some older children of guest workers — who rank highest in a merit-based test. This would shift U.S. immigration policy towards Trump’s call for a merit-based, productivity-boosting immigration system.

Sounds like 1986 all over again.

    Ryan has his priorities:
    1. His rich liberal wife and her rich liberal relatives
    2. US Chamber of Commerce
    3. Donor class
    4. BFF Liuc Guiterrez and other liberal friends across the aisle

    99. People in the 1st congressional district of Wisconsin
    100. The American people

    “Sounds like 1986 all over again.”

    We should be so lucky if it is even half that good. Course I have to point out that at least with Reagan it was the Dims that did it to him on the deal. Here its Trump’s own party doing the shafting.

    Ryan has long perfected the art of SOUNDING like he cares about the American public, and freedom…while in reality not giving one small damn about either.

    And yup, he is going to twist the knife on our collective backs as he goes off to be a multi-million dollar lobbyist.

    Again, say what ya will about Nancy Pelosi…she stayed true to her Leftist ideology, and forced her entire Party to go along with it. And she STILL managed to accumulate over $300 million. Nice job, Nancy.

    actually, drdog, the GOP abetted the Dims in 1986 by being lapdogs. Still, at least the GOP didn’t LEAD the charge.

    I do make exceptions (based on merit, of course). If Ana (today’s Sunshine Girl) wants to come to the US (legally or illegally), she has my permission. She’s obviously well-qualified to be a US citizen:

    this text between FBI officials will be included in Horowitz’s report:

    “‘We’ll stop’ Trump from becoming president.”

    In his report Horowitz will apparently conclude there was “No political bias in the FBI”.

    You are correct, Jim.

    Lisa Page, the snagged-toothed love of Peter Stroyk’s life, is whining all over that OF COURSE she allowed to have opinions! And the Left/media/Dems (same creeps) are eating it up. Yet if ANY Conservative says ONE THING they don’t like, it is evidence they can NEVER be trusted in ANY position of authority again.

    Hypocrisy and double-standards…the life’s blood of the Left

    Good news!!! There is a little Austrian in all Europeans.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-14/end-merkel-german-government-crisis-after-coalition-rebellion-over-immigration

    The bottom line for Merkel: admit that her refugee policy has been disastrous and reverse it, or suffer a rebellion, either within her coalition or her own party, and find her political career over in the most bizarre way imaginable: by pushing a George Soros agenda, which is gradually claiming the political life of every “progressive, liberal” European politician.

    From some time back but interesting.

    http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/14/mueller-lawyer-resisted-trump/
    An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

    The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.

    The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.

    6/7 – Gives you real hope for his FISA related investigations don’t it! /sarc

    No bias…lmao, what a joke. It’s interesting now though we have pretty much confirmed all cabinet agency heads were using out-side email accounts to communicate gov business in a clear and concerted effort to avoid gov. records laws. BTW Wnd had a piece yesterday detailing how a ton of digital-records at the national archives relating to Obama communications have gone ‘missing’.

    Reading though some of the report… vs Wray presser…

    It’s like “No Intent” all over again, only with a detailed report that actually does show pretty clear intent to anyone reading it with common sense.

    Presser was so laughable especially considering same asshole talking isn’t turning over docs to Congress. Like I said when he was nominated, meet the news boss, ..same as the old boss… and that turd replacement pick is almost entirely on Trump. #sad Two plus weeks to prep and all you got is fraudulent spin and ‘anti-bias’ ‘training’… really? I mean really?? It’s like an in your face bird flipping to the public.

    20 – Goes against this “it’s not the rank and file” etc bs narrative, sure there are good people, but it’s a joke to me to think the virus is somehow contained to the most senior folks. Look at just what is being found with a little digging and sniffing around the top, bet if you kept on going you’d find similar down the chain at both fbi and especially at doj hq. Never happen though, it’s not good for the swamp to let that door even be cracked slightly open.

    Nunes now says he was feed info about the wiener-laptop it seems a few days after it was officially received from ny-fbi in dc, couldn’t say anything at the time cause ‘classified’. Got to love all these text exchanges that were kept from\redacted from congress prior to now under the guise of ‘national security’ only again for us to find the reason had nothing to do with national security, but embarrassment and clear bias.

    Interesting details in this PL piece.
    Turns out Comey used a personal email acct for some official business.
    Hillary tweets “But my emails”
    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/06/hillary-responds-to-ig-report.php

    Commenter: Rep Ron DeSantis had great response … “But BleachBit”

    Another commenter:
    This … completely ingores the facts. Comey used a private email account while using his personal laptop at home to work on nonclassified information like speeches. He would then attach the document to a message from his personal email account to his FBI.gov email account so that he would have access to his most recently edited version at the office the next day. … The report isn’t clear as to the reason, but I think there was some technical issue with him gaining access to his FBI.gov account from his home, and at some point he gave up trying to get that fixed. There is no “hard and fast” DOJ rule prohibiting use of private email accounts for gov’t business, but the circumstances under which it is allowed are very narrow, and the official work must be transferred to a government network computer within 20 days. Comey seems to have done that
    Clinton, on the other hand, used a private server in her house for ALL her official emails in order to avoid having her communications captured by a government network and subject to later publication thru FOIA or Congressional investigation.

    23,
    If memory serves Mueller then FBI director instituted a program that if you wanted a Special Agent promotion you had to do a stint in DC HQ. Which means that any SP in the field now had the opportunity to be infected with the DC ‘virus’.

    The other item of note is that the FBI is being set up as the fall guy here. You don’t hear much chatter about DoJ involvement but they were in it up to their necks as well.

    * The possibility that the conversation would not be considered a conspiracy to sedition?
