House Speaker Paul Ryan? How Did That Happen?

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:

Jim Demint

Newt Gingrich

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?


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
