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.

Trending: Trump Gives HILARIOUS Response When Asked About Socialist Ocasio-Cortez (Watch)

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.

Furious Furloughed Federal Workers Descend on DC Swamp to Demand Action

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

government shutdown

Americans are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the asinine behavior of our elected officials, and a breaking point seems to be in the offing.

The partial government shutdown that we are currently navigating is undoubtedly sending us in the direction of civil unrest, as nearly a million government workers are being asked to continue toiling away at their jobs despite their net-zero paychecks.

This has led to massive callouts at the TSA, the suspension of routine food inspections by the FDA, and a general sense of anger and lament among We The People.  The Washington fat cats are too proud to compromise, and the working class Americans who are affected by this sinful pride have reached a tipping point.

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hundreds of furloughed government workers and contractors descended on the White House on Thursday to plead to be allowed to return to work.

Holding signs such as “Stop the war on workers” and “We want work, not walls,” the protesters assembled in the bitter cold outside of AFL-CIO union headquarters before making their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The anger was palpable.

“I’d like the shutdown to end. I’d like to go back to my job,” said Matthew Chrichton, a 32-year-old staffer for the Peace Corps, adding that he’d moved to Washington for his job four months ago and “living in DC is expensive.”

“I have rent to pay,” he said. “I have bills I need to pay. I want to go to work, and I can’t because they can’t figure out how to fund the government.”

The action comes after weeks of populists uprisings in France, in which the French people have railed against their own government’s lack of care for the people of that nation.

If the American government shutdown doesn’t end soon, there is little doubt that scenes similar to those we’ve witnessed in Paris could be on the horizon.

Blackface-Wearing Comedian Joins Dems in Dismissing Border Crisis

There is a crisis on the border where women are being raped and children are dying, but don’t worry! Blackface-wearing comedian Jimmy Kimmel says everything is fine.

There are no shortage of disturbing issues with the liberal left’s stance on border security, not the least of which was on full display last night.

Shortly after President Trump delivered an 8-minute address to the nation on the subject of the southern border, the media spin-machine was turned up to 11.  In the immediate aftermath of the Commander in Chief’s speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the podium, looking eerily similar to the famous Grant Wood painting American Gothic.  During their terse, dry, and unconvincing read of their vetted and re-vetted verbiage, the two failed to make any sort of point that resembled a counterattack to the President.

The American people weren’t buying it, with anchors on CNN even visibly disappointed by the lackluster language.

Then came the late night hosts, who again attempted to downplay the severity of what it happening on the border.

“All the major networks covered his speech live, and for good reason,” Jimmy Kimmel began. “It was historic. Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt primetime television to warn us about a completely made-up thing.”

Kimmel then suggested that the speech should be accompanied by the following disclaimer: “The following presidential address is a work of fiction. All personalities, incidents, events, locations and facts were pulled directly from the president’s ass.”

“So with that as a caveat, the president spoke. He did not mention the caravan that was coming to get us three months ago. I don’t know what happened to that, but I guess it disappeared when the election was done,” Kimmel said. “But he does want us to believe there is a crisis at the border beside the one he created. He desperately wants us to be worried about the border.”

Kimmel’s remarks are akin to denial of the horrific conditions that many of the migrants face.

Not only are these human beings subjected to blistering temperatures, dangerous trails, and nefarious ne’er do wells on their journey, but we have already seen at least two instances in which children are dying as a result of their attempts to be marched across the border.

And this doesn’t even take into account the unspeakable and unfathomable things that occur to women and children as they mingle with these hardened smugglers.

If the democrats and the comedians want to downplay the severity of that, they do so at the peril of being labeled “Border Crisis Deniers” – a term purposefully reminiscent of “Holocaust Deniers”.

But, what else do you expect from a man who habitually wore blackface for chuckles?
