VIDEO: Paul Ryan Slams Media in New Interview With ‘Face The Nation’

He nails it.

Published

on

On a recent episode of “Face the Nation,” host John Dickerson played a clip of an interview he conducted earlier this month with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan where he slammed the mainstream media for only seeming to cover the political fighting going on in our nation.

Another topic of conversation that came up during the interview besides the discussion of bipartisanship in the media is how identity politics has infiltrated the GOP.

DICKERSON: Why do you think there’s not much talk about bipartisanship in the coverage?

RYAN: You know, I don’t think it sells for you guys, for the media. You take a look at the bills we pass out of the House – about a thousand bills. It’s been one of the most productive sessions of Congress in a generation. And of those roughly thousand bills, over 80% of them are bipartisan bills. So, we’ve tackled opioids; we’ve tackled human trafficking; we’ve rebuilt the military. All of those are bipartisan, but they don’t get reported. It doesn’t sell. So, I honestly think, John, it’s the hits and the clicks, and it’s the ratings chase that’s on display in America today that says when they’re fighting each other, that’s when you cover it.

DICKERSON: So if we accept some portion of responsibility for that, you’ve seen some of President Trump’s rallies. Do those rallies accentuate the things that unite us – the bipartisan achievements? Or do they do something very successful in politics…which is sow division in the country?

RYAN: Yeah.

DICKERSON: Do you see that happening at his rallies?

Ryan noted that while sometimes divisive behavior is present at Trump’s rallies, that’s not always the case. When Dickerson pressed Ryan for more, he launched into a bit about the dangers of identity politics:

I worry about tribal identity politics becoming the new norm of how politics is waged. As conservatives, we always thought this was sort of a Left-wing, Alinsky thing. Unfortunately, the Right practices identity politics now as well. It’s the day and age, it’s technology and everything else – identity politics, which is now being practiced on both sides of the aisle, is, unfortunately, working. And I think we, as leaders, we gotta figure out how do we make inclusive, aspirational politics strategically valuable again?

Dickerson once again brought the conversation back to President Trump asking, “Does President Trump practice those kind of politics?”

Ryan replied by saying, “sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn’t.”

Dickerson reacted incredulously, but Paul stated:

Look…on economic growth, on tax reform, on getting the military, and helping veterans – those are things that he has led us to that have really brought people together. And he talks about these at his rally, and that is inclusive.

Manchin Shreds AOC, Says ‘She’s More Active On Twitter Than Anything Else’

Published

Despite the fact that the mainstream media has prematurely called the 2020 presidential election in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, there’s a lot of hostilities and division ripping through the party right now. Particularly between Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Manchin recently conducted an interview with the NY Times, which was posted up on Monday, in which he took aim at the diehard socialist congresswoman, claiming that she’s far more active on Twitter than she is in Congress. via Newsmax: His words came after a Nov. 11 tweet of his own where he had taken aim at calls to defund the police. He wrote: “Defund the police? Defund the police? Defund, my butt. I’m a proud West Virginia Democrat. We are the party of working men and women. We do not have some crazy socialist agenda, and we do not believe in defunding the police.” Ocasio-Cortez had fired back in a Nov. 12 tweet in which she posted a photo of herself seated behind Manchin at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the photo, she appeared to be giving Manchin an icy stare as he applauded. In the Tuesday interview with the Times, Manchin addressed the tweet, saying: “I guess she put the dagger stare on me. I don’t know the young lady — I really don’t. I never met her. I’m understanding she’s not that active with her bills or in committee. She’s more active on Twitter than anything else.” A spokeswoman for AOC, Lauren Hitt, came out to defend the congresswoman by stating that she has submitted more amendments than 90 percent of other freshmen folk in Congress. “The congresswoman has earned a reputation as a tough, prepared member in committee hearings,” Hitt stated. Manchin isn’t exactly wrong here. AOC spends a whole…

Democratic Mayor Of San Jose Busted Allegedly Violating Coronavirus Rules For Thanksgiving

Published

on

The Democratic mayor of the city of San Jose, California is catching tremendous heat over accusations that he ignored COVID-19 restrictions after he urged citizens in the city to “cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” Well, we all know how much the radical left in this country loves hypocrisy, so not shocked by this a bit. This really demonstrates how liberal “elites” view themselves as above the law, while they look at their constituents as peons. via Daily Wire: NBC Bay Area reported Monday that Democrat San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo appeared to “have broken health protocols in celebrating Thanksgiving with family members outside of his own household.” Reporters from the local affiliate learned that he celebrated Thanksgiving with his elderly parents, which his office later confirmed, with “an unknown number of other guests.” His office did not disclose how many people attended the dinner, how many different households attended, and whether those who attended wore masks. “This is a private event – not public,” Liccardo’s chief of staff, Jim Reed stated. “We are going to redraw the line between what is personal and what is public because that line has become blurred.” On the day before Thanksgiving, Liccardo tweeted, “Cases are spiking, in part because we’re letting our guard (and masks) down with family & friends. Let’s cancel the big gatherings this year and focus on keeping each other safe.” https://twitter.com/sliccardo/status/1331576931125379082 “While few details about Liccardo’s Thanksgiving celebration have been released, it appears the gathering did elude guidelines frequently touted by the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19,” NBC Bay Area said in their report. “A recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted tighter restrictions across the Bay Area and the potential for California to exceed…
