Paul Ryan is once again attempting to deceive voters into believing that he is a conservative, and that he has the best interests of America at heart. When looking at Ryan’s voting record, he looks like the love child of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, who have collectively done NOTHING to stop the anti-American, liberal/progressive agenda of Barack Obama. Paul Ryan in desperation is sending out mailers in his home district to make it look like he’s strong on national security and the border.
Well, Paul Ryan. Facts are stubborn things. The FACTS are that you have done NOTHING to stop ANY of Obama’s open borders agenda, funding EVERY. SINGLE. ONE of his illegal and unconstitutional overreaches on immigration. You, sir, are little more than a useful idiot to the anti-American left, seeking to maintain your seat at the table.
VOTE FOR AND/OR SUPPORT PAUL NEHLEN TO REPLACE PAUL RYAN IN CONGRESS.
Following a new primary election poll showing that House Speaker Paul Ryan has plummeted to well below 50 percent in his home district, Ryan is out with new mailers assuring Wisconsin voters of his desire to secure the border, and urging them to support him in his contentious August 9th primary election.
The new mailers touting Ryan’s support for border security is interesting given that just last year, Ryan championed a spending bill that fully funded President Obama’s open borders agenda– including funding sanctuary cities, executive amnesty, and the release of criminal aliens. The mailers also come amid new reports indicating that, one month after his election, Ryan plans to bring up “criminal sentencing” measures that could release thousands of criminal illegal aliens from prison onto the streets.
“Keeping America safe is a big job. And it’s the most important one there is,” the Ryan mailer reads. “Protect our Homeland— that means securing the border, confronting Islamic Terrorism, and tackling new threats by stopping them from reaching our shores… Paul Ryan for U.S. Congress… Vote Tuesday, August 9th” Continue reading
I’ve been talking about the overly political nature of the USAF promotion system for years, and it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one who sees it. John Q. Public does an excellent job of summarizing the problems with the system in the article cited below. The entire article is worth the read, but I’ve pulled the three paragraphs that I thought were the most powerful.
“Rather than promotion being keyed to performance, it was keyed to administrative savvy, shows of commitment and loyalty, the possession of politically favored personal attributes, the ability to appear to be saying and doing everything perfectly (notwithstanding a bureaucratically invisible truth to the contrary), and most of all, sponsorship by cronies further up the chain of command.”
“Absent a correction, there will come a day when someone pushes the blue button labeled “airpower” and the machine will sputter and clank and fail to respond. A few puffs of smoke later, we’ll realize we’ve built the world’s most overpriced water fountain instead of a war machine.”
“But standing around it in a circle of trim waistlines, gleaming teeth, and sharply creased sleeves will be the most presentable and politically capable group of managers ever assembled under the blue banner. They’ll lose the war and fail in their duty to the nation, but look marvelous while doing so.”
Politicians and Operators: the Virtuous and Vicious Cycle of the Air Force’s Promotion Systems
I guess now it’s only damaging to “good order and discipline,” and a financial burden to the service if you’re a white Christian male.

The war on Christianity is no longer in the shadows. It is out in public and on full display. Most notably in the public schools, and on college campuses. The Apostle Paul warned us that we would face persecution.
2 Timothy 3:12 NASB Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
He was right.
VIDEO: School Admins Physically Block Parents, Students From Off Campus “Jesus Lunch”
Every Tuesday since 2014, a group of parents and students in Wisconsin meet off campus for what’s known as a “Jesus Lunch.” During that time, students of the Christian faith meet in a public park during an open lunch hour for the students and religion is discussed.
How far will the school officials go to stop these lunches? Well, if this footage brought to us via EAGNews is any indication, the superintendent will actually physically try to block parents and students from using the park.
The Middleton-Cross Plains School District claims that they have a right to block the parents because they lease the park during school hours. However, the lease doesn’t prohibit others from using the park during that period — it simply allows the school to use it.
No other people have been excluded from the public park, especially not for exercising their First Amendment-protected rights of freedom of religion and assembly.
The lunches draw up to 450 students a week. Five parents arrange for a speaker, prepare and serve the food and then clean up. It seems like there would be no problem with this — but that’s when political correctness reared its ugly head.
The school district recently sent home a letter saying that they “believe that religious or political events do not have a place in our schools or on our campus, except when sponsored by a student group in accordance with our rules, which require prior approval.”
“In addition, many students have conveyed to us their concern about a group offering free food to incentivize participation in a religious event on campus. The result of which has a divisive impact on our learning community,” the ungrammatical letter read.
School officials also said — HA! — that they were worried about the quality of the food being served at the event. Yeah, because those Michelle Obama lunches are a whole lot better.
“Their true motivation is clear — it’s the religious speech (they object to),” said Phil Stamman, an attorney representing the parents. “Students are free to go a local gas station to buy food, a friend’s house, McDonalds. It’s not an issue with food. The problem is the religious message and the fact that it’s becoming too effective.”
So how did the school officials alleviate the “divisive impact” on their “learning community?” By blocking parents and students from entering the park, of course! After all, nothing says reconciliation like physical confrontation.
“They coned up the parking lot, waited there and confronted my clients and told them to leave,” Stamman said. “(The parents) responded how I recommended. They walked right past them. The superintendent repeatedly tried to confront them. He was the first one. But they just moved on.”
“The public park can be leased to another public entity, but it’s a non-exclusive lease. It’s not fenced off and it’s still open to the public. Because of that the laws associated with the First Amendment still apply,” Stamman added. “Nobody else was being told not to walk into the park.”
The town, by the way, has given the parents a letter saying they have use of the park for the “Jesus Lunches,” and the police have refused to do anything. Apparently, there is sanity in Middleton, Wisconsin. Just not in charge of the schools, apparently, whose administrators should be fired and replaced.
Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter to show the lengths the left will go to in order to stop religious students.
Do you think this superintendent should be fired?

Obama and his hypocritical minions are waging an offensive claiming that the Constitution says the senate can’t prevent Obama from appointing a justice to replace Antonin Scalia. It’s amusing that many of the same people saying the senate can’t stop Obama from appointing a justice were senators who did everything in their power as senators to prevent a Republican president from appointing a justice, even coming right out and saying in the case of Chuckie Schumer that he would prevent any nominee of George W. Bush from being voted on for the last 18 months of Bush’s presidency. The current Vice President, Joe Biden, was one of the chief persecutors of Robert Bork, giving rise to the phrase “getting Borked.” The democrats don’t have a leg to stand on in this debate. As I heard it said about Mitch McConnell saying no Obama appointee would be approved, it was poor chess. I agree with McConnell, and I pray he has the guts to say the course and not cave into Obama AGAIN, but he should have said nothing, submitted the liberal candidates to the same body cavity search they have submitted conservative appointees to until they withdrew themselves from consideration, but still never bring them up for a vote.
But assuming the not so conservative Republican leadership actually holds the line, the fear is that Obama will just do a recess appointment when the senate adjourns in January prior to the inauguration. I would not put it past him, but I do not believe such action to be constitutional. Here’s why.
A question I have posited elsewhere, if the Constitution says what it says, and doesn’t say what it doesn’t say, am I correct in interpreting Article 2, Sect 2 of the Constitution to say that POTUS can’t simply do a recess appointment for a “Supreme” Court justice because the senate is in recess, but that the vacancy he is attempting to fill must have occurred DURING THAT RECESS?
“The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”
What do you think? I guess your answer depends on whether you think the Constitution is ACTUALLY the law of the land or not.
