Note to Speaker Paul Ryan: ____ YOU

Paul Ryan That's Not Who We AreYou are dead to me.  The GOP establishment is dead to me.

I am sorry I had to create such a vulgar title for this post, but I am done.

Ladies and gentlemen, the GOP are working hand-in-hand with Leftists to bring down this nation.


Paul Ryan Tells Sean Hannity He Will Not Support Any Cuts To Muslim Immigration: ‘That’s Not Who We Are’

by Julia Hahn

House Speaker Paul Ryan is ruling out making any cuts to Muslim immigration.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Ryan declared that considering an applicant’s religion would not be “appropriate” and would be fundamentally un-American— insisting “that’s not who we are.”

“Un-American,” Speaker Ryan?  Because I and others like me are concerned for the safety of our families, our children, our future?  Because we don’t want what is occurring to Europe — tearing its culture apart — to occur on our soil?

That makes me “un-American” Speaker Ryan?

“Well, first of all, I don’t think a religious test is appropriate. That’s not who we are,” said Ryan.

By declaring that it would not be “proper” or “appropriate” for the United States to consider the religion of a visa applicant— or whether the applicant supports Sharia law or Muslim theocracy— Ryan is effectively suggesting that the United States should not be allowed to select whom we admit based on likelihood of assimilation.

Mr Ryan, goodbye to you sir.  You are an intelligent man, you have vast budgetary skills, but I now question every decision you make because it is clear that political correctness is primary in your thinking.

And I am “un-American.”

After serving my various communities and country by working in law enforcement for 41 years, sacrificing one marriage, working all shifts, working holidays, having very little of what most persons would call a “normal life” during my working years (as I am now retired) — after all that sacrifice, obeying all the rules, being a good citizen, paying copious amounts of taxes — I am now “un-American.”

Mr Obama has stated that, by September, he will bring 10,000 Syrian “refugees” into the US under his resettlement plan.  So far, 2265 have been admitted according to State Department statistics.

On Monday of this week, 225 Syrian “refugees” were admitted into the US by the State Department.  That is a record for single day admits.  The standard rate is roughly 10 per day.  Under Mr Obama’s plan, the vetting isn’t occurring fast enough.  So, of course, you know that corners will be cut because of the political push from DC.  FBI Director James Comey has already said that there are no real elements in place in order to properly and safely vet Syrian “refugees,” yet here we are.

Let’s also examine the State Department’s own statistics.  Of those almost 2,300 Syrian “refugees” admitted, 2,200 are Sunni Muslim, 27 are unspecified Muslim, 17 are Shiite Muslim and 4 are Christian.  You are already setting up another conflict within our borders of Sunni vs Shiite.

Where are these “refugees” going to find jobs?  Actual Americans are having one helluva time trying to find jobs due to the regulations that DC is placing upon businesses with the minimum wage issue, ObamaKare, overtime pay and taxes.

Who is going to pay for these extra mouths to feed and house?  Local governments are already stretched.  Look at Europe.  Do we learn nothing from Europe?  Can we not see what the Muslim hordes have done to Europe, to most every country in the EU?  Can we not see that

WHY is this a priority for the Obama Administration now?  Why aren’t we putting the safety and security of Americans first?  It would appear to me, for example, that we have enough illegal Mexicans burning the US flag and waving Mexican flags.

Paul Ryan, there is NO “right” to emigrate to the United States.  It is our country,  We get to choose who comes in.  We get to choose.

Breitbart summarizes:

Regardless, every year, under Ryan’s vision the United States can expect to continue to bring in two Muslim migrants for every one Iowa Republican primary voter. According to Pew, by 2040, the United States’ Muslim population is expected to surpass the nation’s Jewish population. It is unlikely that the Muslim migrants brought in under the nation’s current federal policy will support Ryan’s limited government platform as only 11% of U.S. Muslim, according to Pew, are Republican or lean-Republican. Ryan’s continued support for the visa gusher, however, is consistent with his past statements on the matter.

Please, ladies and gentlemen, read the entire article in order to understand just precisely why it is that I am incensed.

This is a clash of cultures, no more, no less.



Bad news for Ryan and the GOP

GOP Fat Cat Old Guard EstablishmentDon’t get me wrong.

I think Paul Ryan is a very smart man.  With regard to budgets, he gots skills.  He gots game.

But as far as being an actual Conservative, Paul Ryan leaves me quite tepid.


Poll: Nearly half of GOP voters disapprove of Ryan

by Harper Neidig

Nearly half of Republican voters disapprove of Paul Ryan’s performance as House speaker, according to a new poll released Wednesday by Public Policy Polling.

Only 40 percent of GOP voters are happy with Ryan’s stint as speaker so far, while 44 percent disapprove. Those numbers worsen among all voters, with just 30 percent approval and 48 percent disapproval.

Many establishment Republicans have looked to Ryan unify the party, and speculation has grown as to whether he would mount his own last-ditch candidacy to attempt to block presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

For those who are actually Conservative, with a capital “C,” this comes as little surprise.  The GOP has a history of betrayal and backstabbing.  But instead of words like “betrayal” and “backstabbing” and “treachery” and “duplicity” and “perfidy,” the GOP embraces words like “conciliatory” and “compromise” and “bi-partisanship.”  I tend to think of the GOP as the graphic below illustrates.

GOP InvertebrateThere’s a reason for this.

Look, it’s no secret that I’m on the downslope of life.  I’m one of those terrible Caucasoid males the Leftists warn Millennials about.  But at my age I must admit that I have run out of patience.  I would also submit that, after contributing over a MILLION DOLLARS in taxes (yes, I figured it out), I “get” to run out of patience.  After all, I’ve paid for that potential privilege.  My “patience reservoir” is right out.

In my 60s, imagine that.

Because, you see, I’ve absolutely NO say with what happens to my hard-earned cash.  I have had an official job requiring a social security number (in addition to mowing lawns) since I was 14.  I know this because Social Security sends me a summary statement periodically.  Yes.  All the way back to the 60s when I started throwing papers for both of my then-local newspapers — one at 4 AM, and the other at 3 PM.  I worked not just because I wanted the money but also because it’s what you did back then.  You worked.  I had papers dumped at the end of my parents’ driveway in a bundle, and it was up to me to roll them, band them, stuff them into the packs on my bicycle and then ride / throw them onto the porch of each house.  If I failed to hit the porch closest, my customers complained.

They complained if I was “late” and they complained if I threw too short and they had to walk a few feet more down their driveway.  They complained if I was a few more feet away from their front door.

Back to Paul Ryan.

And with that, back to Donald John Trump because, after all, who is Left besides Hillary and Bernie?

This poll?  It’s nothing more than a dipstick into the engine block of the GOP.

Guess what?



Paul Ryan: “I don’t want to be speaker”

Ryan & ObamaAnd then he became Speaker of the House.

Paul Ryan says he doesn’t want to be a presidential candidate.

But for a guy who says he doesn’t want to be a presidential candidate, he’s making a lot of speeches about not wanting to be a presidential candidate.  A certain Bill Shakespeare line comes to mind about now.

The GOP is pretty much already convinced that it’s going to lose the presidency.

If it’s Trump or Hillary, the GOP wants Hillary.

If it’s Cruz or Hillary, the GOP wants Hillary.

They just don’t have the testicles to come out openly and say it.

GOP InvertebrateThe GOP believes Trump or Cruz lose to Hillary.  They’re planning on it.

The GOP is thinking, hell, we may as well lose with “our guy,” whomever “our guy” might turn out to be.

This is American Politics, ladies and gentlemen, politics writ large, and politics writ Establishment.  This is the Old Guard Establishment GOP doing everything it can to ensure one of the Usual Suspects gets into the race.  The GOP mostly consists of an assload of Surrender Monkeys.

GOP RINO FactsFirst the GOP was shocked that Jeb Bush didn’t resonate.  They were sure he was going to walk right into the presidency. Maybe even Mittens.  VP?

Meb Bushney 2016Then each one of their other mealy-mouthed do-nothing empty suits fell by the wayside, including Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Lindsay Graham, George Pataki and Jim Gilmore.  Hell, my dead cat Mose would have had a better chance at president than Jim Gilmore.

Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Scott Walker, Rick Perry — they persevered a while longer until it shook out to the final three.

Read carefully what Paul Ryan said on Tuesday:

Count me out: I simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party to be the president, you should actually run for it.  I chose not to do this, therefore I should not be considered. Period. End of story.

So what is Paul Ryan really saying?

He’s saying there needs to be a back up plan, and that back up plan should include someone from the Old Staid Establishment GOP.

Who ran for president.



Wouldn’t that be a Jeb Bush or a Mitt Romney or a Lindsay Graham or a Mike Huckabee or a Jeb Bush or a Jeb Bush?

Hey, what about Jeb Bush?

GOP Fat Cat Old Guard Establishment

You know, I think Jeb Bush might be available.  At a moment’s notice.  He speaks Spanish.  He loves him some illegal immigrants.  Syrians too, I’m sure.  Come one, come all, no background checks, it’s an “act of love.”

But wait.  Paul Ryan said we need a rule.  A new rule.  Delegates, we need a new rule.  A rule that says to be the nominee, you need to have run in the primary.  You need to have been an actual candidate.

Speaking of Paul Ryan, there is the Super Chapter 9.  Ryan wants to go along to get along.  And bail out PUERTO RICO with American tax dollars.

Look, I don’t trust ANY politician any more.  Trusting a politician is a fool’s game and this country is already rife with a sufficient number of Free Cheese Fools.

Charles Krauthammer thinks that Ryan is just trying to rebuild the party early, seeing its destruction in progress.

But the bottom line?  If Paul Ryan pulls the Lucy Football on his own denial, I won’t be gobsmacked.  He’s done it before, he can do it again.  Think: speaker.



53% of those polled think Paul Ryan is lying when he says he won’t accept the presidential nomination according to a Fox poll displayed on the Greta Susteren show, Tuesday.

You brought this on yourselves, GOP.


Tuesday: a traveling day for BZ

Today — as incongruent as it may seem — my wife and I are traveling from the Mendocino coast back to my aerie in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Because I will be occupied by driving, I won’t be able to blog about the election today, until perhaps much later after I get home.

In the meantime, I have but this to submit:

A photo from a point somewhere within my general mountain locale.

Couldn’t quite tell you where this may be.  Ahem.

But it certainly represents my true feelings today, Obama Removal Day.




Obama Ends Campaign in Half-Empty Arena


President Obama’s big rally tonight (Monday night – BZ) turned out to be just like his first, opening salvo of the 2012 campaign: a half-empty arena in Ohio. According to RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy, there were “empty seats scattered around the upper-level of Nationwide Arena … Four years ago, after all, Obama was easily filling venues larger than that …” The event even featured Bruce Springsteen and Jay-Z, and Obama still couldn’t fill it out.

This photograph immediately comes to my mind:

Ladies and gentlemen, think of it, the ramifications of it all:

– Even with the White House Bully Pulpit
– Even with the Demorats controlling the Senate
– Even with the might of the entire DEM/MSM behind him
– Even with the sound of his voice on TV and radio literally every day
– Even with the guilt of Caucasoids nationally

Mr Obama is still not walking away with the race.

Against Mitt Romney, for God’s sake!

Tomorrow: there’s a surprise in every package.
