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.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
