With thanks to my friend Diana West for the link, here’s a brief report from One America News which tells us how Congressman Paul Ryan (read that: John Boehner version 2.0) garnered enough House votes to become Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert, one of a very small handful of ethical men remaining in D.C., tells us who applied the muscle to the House conservatives to give up their principles and choose Ryan (a pro-amnesty left of center Republican who has gone along with everything Barack Obama wanted to accomplish) for the job which will put him two heartbeats away from the Presidency:
Diana writes her final comments about this distressing situation:
It is a difficult thing to expose the machinations of the powerful. There are undoubtedly unpleasant consequences. But it is such machinations above all — the fix and the fixers — that belong in the light.
Thank you, Louie Gohmert, for shining a light in a dark time.
Yes. And in a very corrupt place. It’s just more of the same. Is it any wonder that Americans are just plain fed up with our politicians?
Nevada Democrat Senator Harry Reid (how much further left can we go?) endorsed Ryan for the job. What does that tell us about Ryan’s character and intentions?
