Opinion| When House Speaker Paul Ryan held an October 10, 2016 conference call with his fellow Republicans he made his intentions towards Donald Trump abundantly clear:
“There are basically two things that I want to make really clear as for myself as your Speaker. I am not going to defend Donald Trump, not now, not in the future.”
Ryan’s statement came after an Access Hollywood tape was released that was embarrassing to then-candidate Trump.
It was about as disingenuous a reason imaginable considering Ryan never made so much as a peep over evidence that Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, was at the least tangentially, linked to a number of pedophilia and child trafficking cases.
Ryan also passed on demanding an investigation – or even raising the subject – into allegations that the DNC rigged the primaries to guarantee Hillary’s nomination.
Keep in mind that at the time Ryan pledged not to support Trump the FBI and DOJ were allegedly conspiring to destroy the Trump candidacy and, after Trump’s election, to destroy his presidency.
During this time Ryan was a member of the Gang of Eight making him one of only four House members being informed by the intelligence community about the FBI-DOJ plot to destroy Donald Trump.
The only other House Republican in the intelligence loop was Devin Nunes. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and SSCI Chairman, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) were the two Republican members of the Senate privy to the same knowledge.
Nunes eventually emerged as a hero and true American patriot while the other three necessarily did not.
As the Spygate scandal has begun unraveling with greater speed, we have been given the necessary perspective to realize the extent Paul Ryan (and McConnell and Burr) were willing to go in order to protect Hillary Clinton and destroy Donald Trump.
Those three, along with their four Democrat colleagues, deliberately ignored the corruption of virtually every government agency and department where political leverage could benefit Obama, Clinton and the globalist cabal.
Clinton was their last best hope to protect the intra-government criminal construct surrounding the international cabal and its fleecing Americans of trillions of dollars to the benefit of multinational corporations and global bankers, that Trump had pledged to end.
David Plouffe was Obama’s campaign manager:
Trump voters, recognizing that they had been losing ground to the globalist cabal and only Donald Trump was speaking to that, ignored Ryan’s negative speak and elected Trump.
From that point forward, Ryan’s job should’ve been to move the Trump agenda that had garnered more votes than any previous Republican presidential candidate. Ryan was, after all was said and done, charged with leadership of the House for just that purpose.
But failing that, he still had an obligation to protect and defend the Constitution and to preserve the necessary checks and balances between branches of government.
If the common voter recognized that Washington had long ago turned its back on them and had become a corrupt cesspool, then Paul Ryan knew why and chose to do nothing.
Instead of speaking out, armed with knowledge that many of the agencies and departments – IRS, EPA, CIA, FBI, DOJ, State – of the Obama administration had been weaponized, first against the rank and file of his own party, and then against Donald Trump for speaking out, Ryan turned his back on all of them and worked to protect the criminal syndicate and the corrupted administration that were working to preserve it.
The Constitution was written with checks and balances to protect American citizens against the potential of a corrupt person in a position of power, or even a corrupt branch of government.
Without Ryan (or, McConnell) exercising their Constitutional duty to provide the legislature’s check on Hussein’s Manchurian presidency, the entire government apparatus had essentially been handed to a tyrant and the threat to the long term preservation of our constitutional republic became very real.
It’s against this backdrop of corruption and very real threat to our country that Paul Ryan worked against Donald Trump, first as a candidate and then as the president.
Many Republicans are convinced Ryan did everything in his power to “throw” the 2018 elections to the Democrats.
Voters had returned control of the House to Republicans in 2010, only two years into the Obama administration to provide what they saw as a needed check against the excesses of his first term.
When Ryan ascended to the Speakership, Americans had every right to expect him to lead that resistance and, above all else, to protect and defend the Constitution.
For his betrayal of America, Paul Ryan should rot in hell.
