Anyone who doubts whether Reince Priebus is on the side of the American people or if he truly is in bed with Paul Ryan, as many believe, should watch his behavior in the immediate aftermath of the rejection by conservatives and moderates of the Republican suicide pact that was Ryancare. Not only are they in bed together, they’ve got matching jammies.
Priebus isn’t properly identifying the establishment representative, the political prostitute masquerading as a Speaker, Paul Ryan, as being at fault. He’s solely the one who served up the Ryancare disaster as the only option, with no regular order or debate, in what is truly amateurish and horrible form for a Speaker. Yet his buddy Reince has apparently been successful in convincing President Trump that conservatives who held their commitment to the people of America in higher regard than their own favor with the President, are being vilified.
President Trump has indicated, through Chief of Staff Priebus and by tweet, that he will consider courting Democrats more aggressively in order to bypass conservatives if necessary in order to pass legislation. Apparently the quality of the legislation is less of an issue than putting one in the win column.
It’s a line of thinking and a potential course of action that President Trump should consider very carefully before he ventures in. If he loses the support of the American people, the silent majority that put him into office, things will turn very ugly, very quickly.
Ryan mirrored his fellow globalist Nancy Pelosi in the manner he attempted to push Obamacare 2.0 aka Ryancare upon the nation. It wasn’t worth passing. It was political suicide, damaging to the nation and even worse for the Republican Party. It could have easily resulted in any imaginable types of Democrat victories and still could in some form before all is said and done. It doesn’t have to, but overture to the Democrats indicate that doors that should have remained padlocked and chained have been left standing ajar.
The Freedom Caucus stood their ground and did the country and President Trump a great service, whether or not he realizes it yet. Passing a bill for the sake of saying you did something is how things operated before someone came to Washington with promises of draining the swamp. We’re supposed to be beyond that type of thing now.
On Fox News Sunday, Priebus told Republicans, “This president is not going to be a partisan president. I think it’s time for our folks to come together, I also think it’s time to potentially get a few moderate Democrats on board as well.”
Is this what it looks like, that President Trump, with Reince Priebus providing the grease or possibly the Vaseline to the skids, is embracing Paul Ryan, the most disloyal, disruptive anti-Trump RINO in the federal government? The one who brought forth a doomed or worse if passed disaster of a bill is seen favorably while the patriots in the Freedom Caucus and conservatives who made him President are disrespected and threatened with being cut out of the process? Why is President Trump listening to Priebus and how can someone who seems so savvy allow himself to be misled by such a conniving little worm? Something doesn’t quite smell right here.
On Sunday morning President Trump tweeted a vindictive, “Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club for Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!”
The President was also sending mixed signals on Saturday, having tweeted, “watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.” Judge Pirro’s open on that program was a call for Speaker Ryan to step down from his position. She accused Ryan of having sold the inexperienced President “a bill of goods” with the Ryancare bill. Priebus also professed to Wallace that the call for Ryan to step down being the focus of her broadcast was just coincidental. Obviously, most of us aren’t dumb enough to believe that.
Whatever is going on, President Trump needs to bear in mind – We understand the we and our country need him; but he needs to remember he needs us as well, all of us. His apparently lack of fidelity to the American patriots and his willingness to form an alliance with the welfare parasite Democrats, in league with Priebus and Ryan is rightfully very concerning. He shouldn’t be too willing to abandon his base in the interest of getting a “W.”
