REPORT: House Conservatives Quietly Plotting Removal of Paul Ryan as Speaker

September 7, 2017 by Joshua Caplan

Paul Ryan’s days as Speaker of the House might be numbered if conservative GOP lawmakers have their way.

Washington Post reports:

Several influential House conservatives are privately plotting ways to use the legislative calendar this fall to push their hard-line agenda — including quiet discussions about possibly mounting a leadership challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan.
The group has gone so far as to float the idea of recruiting former House speaker Newt Gingrich or former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum as potential replacements for Ryan (R-Wis.) should there be a rebellion. The Constitution does not require that an elected member of the House serve as speaker.

Gingrich or Santorum as speaker? House conservatives plot mischief for the fall.

By Robert Costa and Ashley Parker September 7, 2017

…The closed-door conversations are being led by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, in consultation with his allies on the right, in particular Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist who recently returned to his perch as executive chairman of the Breitbart News website. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and other Freedom Caucus members are also involved in the talks to varying degrees, according to nearly a dozen people with knowledge of the discussions…

Freedom Caucus leaders vent to Paul Ryan after talks with Steve Bannon

By Robert Costa September 6, 2017

“I’ve talked to countless Americans who are fed up with Congress’s inability to get anything done. They see Mitch McConnell and Speaker Ryan as the biggest impediments to enacting President Trump’s agenda,” wrote the lawmaker, who requested anonymity due to sensitivity about directly speaking out against Ryan. “If things don’t change — and fast — the American people will demand new leadership in Congress.”

Well-Deserved: Paul Ryan Now as Unpopular as Pelosi; McConnell Less Popular

by John Nolte   1 Sep 2017

To no one’s surprise, a just-released NBC News poll reveals that feckless Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has succeeded in becoming just as unpopular as his polarizing predecessor, San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

The Survey/Monkey poll shows that 30% of those surveyed view Pelosi favorably, a statistical tie with Paul Ryan’s 31%. The two are also tied up in the unfavorable department, with 64% holding an unfavorable view of Pelosi, compared to 63% for Ryan.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is in even worse shape. A Harvard-Harris poll released last week showed the Kentucky Republican with a dismal approval rating of just 19%, the lowest of any politician in the country. In this same poll, Ryan’s favorable rating is 33%, which is in line with the NBC poll.

By:  Chris Pandolfo   August 31, 2017

Republican leadership in Congress is in trouble. Last week a poll showed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is the most hated national politician in America, with just a 19 percent approval rating nationwide.
Now, a new NBC news/SurveyMonkey poll finds that House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., is just as unpopular as Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Ryan is viewed unfavorably by 63 percent of respondents, compared to the 64 percent who hold the same view of Nancy Pelosi.

THEY’RE FINISHED: Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi Are About to Be Ruined When What Just Happened Gets Out

By Stacy Law – August 10, 2017

Congress has not done anything much in a really long time, have they?  That’s just one aspect of the swamp Trump promised to drain…and it’s working.

A new poll just came out that indicates that a majority of Americans think that Congress is a failure so far.  That’s right, 68% of us are disgusted with our “representatives” in Washington, D.C.

By Rebecca Savransky – 08/10/17

“Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?” Trump asked in a tweet regarding the Republican goal of ending ObamaCare.

BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi Just Gave Herself a New Nickname. It’s Hilarious.

July 14, 2017

…Pelosi, who happens to be one of the most unpopular politicians in the country,  said it was “very possible” for Democrats to take back Congress in 2018. She added that it would be easier for Democrats to take back the House rather than the Senate, and even suggested taking back governorships and state legislatures.
