Trump and Ryan’s Venomous Spat Over Citizenship Intensifies

With only six days to go until the midterms, the last thing Paul Ryan wants to do is tick off POTUS.

With a massive migrant caravan forcing the issue to surface in an undeniable way, President Trump has been absolutely fervent regarding immigration as of late.

This should come as no surprise, however, for anyone who paid even the slightest semblance of attention to the 2016 election.  President Trump, then a candidate for the republican party, was the only candidate to come out and publicly verbalize the idea of creating a physical, all-encompassing deterrent to illegal immigration upon our southern border.  The idea was a huge hit with the GOP base, and likely propelled Trump to the presidency.

Now, after the President made the frankly-worrisome claim about using an executive order to amend the Constitution, Speaker of The House Paul Ryan has again vocalized his disapproval of The Donald’s rhetoric.

The amendment in question concerns birthright citizenship, and the President is fairly sure that Paul Ryan knows nothing about it.

President Donald Trump went after House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday, saying one of the top Republican leaders in the President’s party “knows nothing about” birthright citizenship and “should be focusing on holding the Majority” in the House of Representatives “rather than giving his opinions” on the issue.

The comments come a day after Ryan threw cold water on the President’s assertion that he can use executive action to end the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to anyone born in the United States.
Ryan told a Kentucky radio station Tuesday that “you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” following remarks from the President indicating that Trump believes he can do just that, though many legal scholars disagree.
On Wednesday, the President tweeted, “Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!”
This episode of the spat comes just one day after several prominent leaders in DC, including Speaker Ryan, declined to accompany the President during his visit to the site of an antisemitic mass shooting that occurred over the weekend.

AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her. AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced. But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast. Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming. Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her. Here is the frantic video: https://youtu.be/zBG-BmMdP70 The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.” “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.” Then came the clincher. “The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram. That theory was quickly shot down, however. Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in…

RED HANDED: 2020 Candidate Tied to Early SpyGate Setup

Bill Barr has his work cut out for him.

President Trump is officially on the warpath. After literally years of talk about the Mueller report, the document has come and gone.  Its conclusions were a resounding win for this President, and, in the minds of many Americans, the democrats are again acting like sore losers. This accusation is particularly pointed given their behavior back in November of 2016. Trump is now pushing forward with his investigation of the investigators, aimed at getting to the bottom of why and how the entire debacle began. The latest reporting from the Washington Post puts one of the 2020 democrats squarely in the midst of it. Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.  Part of the efforts eventually involved unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited charges made by the Christopher Steele dossier that Trump campaign officials were colluding with Russia. The move could have major implications as 2020 rolls around. Biden’s largely unreported role in the initial Obama administration meetings on the matter of Russian interference could spark further questions now that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims. Biden is currently the far-and-away frontrunner of the crowded 2020 democratic field, besting his closest opponent Bernie Sanders by double digits in the latest polling.
