On the very same day that resigning House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered his farewell address on the floor of Congress, fellow House Rep. Louie Gohmert revealed what may perhaps be the real reason why his relatively young colleague’s career has come to an unexpected end.
“Just a few weeks before the  election, we were told by Paul, by our elected leaders that, gee, the only way we can keep the House majority is just all of us start running against the president,” Gohmert claimed during an interview on radio station WMAL “The Larry O’Connor Show.”
“Fortunately, we had enough people one after another on the call that pushed back so hard they backed off of that,” he added during his discussion Wednesday with guest host Derek Hunter.
Gohmert disseminated the shocking revelation during a broader discussion on how congressional Republicans seem to always be hijacking President Donald Trump’s agenda.

For a little insight into establishment thinking as they desperately attempt to cling to power, one might look to John Boehner.
If the Republican primaries do not produce a clear winner on the Republican National Convention’s first presidential ballot, former House Speaker John Boehner said the only man who can bring the party together is Speaker Paul Ryan.
He is the man who just signed the omnibus which funded all of Obama’s socialist agenda.
“If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said at the Futures Industry Association conference. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.”
He has a point but if the establishment picks someone after millions have voted, it will mean the GOP picked someone who won nothing.
On Tuesday, Ryan said he would not rule out accepting the nomination at a brokered convention.
“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan said “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, ‘well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows.’”
Boehner has been quiet until now.
Boehner said that after the first ballot, “anybody can be nominated” at the convention in Cleveland.
True but if they do horse trading to reject the will of the people, they will destroy their cushy little existence at the same time.

Paul Ryan spoke at the Heritage Foundation to rally the forces on the right and ask conservatives to unite with the establishment until the election. There is nothing the GOP can do right now to fight Obama’s agenda about the Obama agenda.
Schools are closed in New York City today because it’s the Chinese New Year. They also close for two Muslim holidays because we are adapting to all the other peoples and cultures who decide to live in New York. The Hindus are now lobbying for their holiday. I’m sure their cultures are wonderful but the problem is we are being fundamentally transformed by leftists and this is part of the plan. There are so many millions pouring into our country from foreign lands that they cannot assimilate and that is the idea.
Paul Ryan appeared to surrender to the Obama agenda during the speech at Heritage and, coincidentally of course, after meeting with the White House and Mitch McConnell. Rumors circulated after that meeting that they came to an understanding that they would let Obama’s agenda go forward unimpeded until November.
We always have to wait for the next election with no indication anything will change.
OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOT: After four years under an illegally ensconced Obama administration, Mitt Romney courageously heeds widespread warnings against choosing an ineligible vice-presidential candidate and wisely picks Paul Ryan as his running mate.
Commentary by Penbrook Johannson
Editor of The Daily Pen
NEW YORK, NY – After four painful years, America will finally get a second chance to vote for a constitutionally eligible administration.
Mitt Romney’s announcement that Paul Ryan will be his 2012 running mate not only establishes unassailable legitimacy to his candidacy, it violently casts his lawless opponent into outer otherness and essentially brands Obama as the illegitimately elected political enemy of America that he is, while stripping him of the protection provided by a psychotic liberal media.
Has the U.S. reached its Armageddon with a
usurper and traitorous Congress in power?
Retired Army Colonel Lawrence Sellin,
The leaders of the Republican Party have only
contempt for ordinary Americans, the very people who pay the nation’s bills and
fight its wars.
To the political royalty, we are no longer citizens of a
republic, but serfs, whose wishes can be ignored and whose views can be treated
Like all members of Congress, Representative Paul Ryan
(R-WI) has been provided evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is an illegal
President and has committed felonies both before and after occupying the Oval
If you’re looking for real specifics at tonight’s State of the Union, don’t hold your breath. The White House is billing the president’s annual January appearance in front of Congress much like something you’d hear at an “inauguration,” more atypical than most speeches that turn into political laundry lists.
If Obama’s inaugural address was any indication, expect a lofty oration that’s thin on details and heavy on the soaring rhetoric that helped propel the president into office. But don’t believe the spin that he’s moved to the middle. To win re-election, President Obama will, in true chameleon-like fashion, return to the man we met on the 2008 campaign trail, but only on the outside.
