    JANESVILLE, WI— Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen held a press conference on Saturday in front of Paul Ryan’s border wall surrounding his Janesville mansion. Nehlen demanded that Ryan either build a wall to protect the American people or tear down his own wall that protects Ryan and his family.



    “Today, I am calling on Paul Ryan to live under the same conditions, which he’s imposed upon our American communities,” Nehlen said. He went on:

    Paul Ryan, if you will not build a border wall for America, then I am asking you to tear down your wall. If you will not build a wall to honor the mothers and fathers of the dead, if you will not build a wall to protect our children, then, sir, you should tear down your wall and show everyone that you will live under the same conditions as they do.

    People like Paul Ryan and Mark Zuckerberg love open borders so long as they stop at the property lines to their mansions. They ensconce their families with walls and fences, but then lecture us about how we have to be more charitable. And lectures us about how America ‘is more than our borders.’


    As Nehlen was speaking, Ryan’s house was being protected by four large SUVs, a full-size van, several service agents, and a tall fence reinforced by high bushes.

    Nehlen explained that “Paul Ryan is the most open borders, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker member of Congress in either party.”

    “Can you name one time when Paul Ryan fought as hard for you and your family as he’s fought for corporate America?” Nehlen asked.

    Echoing the rhetoric of the victorious Brexit campaign, Nehlen told Wisconsin voters that August 9th will be “Wisconsin’s Independence Day.”

    “Paul Ryan has sold out his district to his corporate masters. On August 9th, the voters of Wisconsin have a historic opportunity: vote Ryan out and declare your freedom,” Nehlen said to loud applause.

    While citizens in the UK voted to remove themselves from the European Union, Paul Ryan has pushed trade policies that will bind the U.S. to an international governing commission similar to that of the EU.

    “With your vote on August 9th, you can save your country from rule by corporate elites,” Nehlen said,, adding:

    With your vote on August 9th, you can dethrone the entire ruling class of America… With your vote on August 9th, you have a chance to save your entire country from open borders… With your vote on August 9th, you can save your entire country from globalism. You can save your entire country from ceding sovereignty to the TPP’s global governing commission.

    “Never have any people of any district had such an extraordinary opportunity to reset the balance of power in America,” Nehlen explained. “People have fought wars for less than you can achieve with your vote.”

    Nehlen also addressed the Americans who have had to bury their children as a result of Paul Ryan’s support for open borders. Nehlen called on Ryan to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration:

    Today, I’m calling on Paul Ryan to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration—the lobbyists who mean more to Ryan than the American fathers and mothers, who have buried their American children as a result of our nation’s open borders.

    Nehlen also addressed the recent bloodshed in Dallas, Texas. Nehlen called on Ryan to bring up an emergency vote making the attempted execution of a police officer a federal hate crime:

    As our police officers across the nation are under attack, and our citizens suffer the consequences of crime spiraling out of control— I’m calling on Paul Ryan to bring up for an emergency vote making the attempted execution of a police officer a federal hate crime punishable by death in all 50 states. Thus, ensuring that any time a police officer is killed, the murderer will face the maximum penalty under the law, and the full resources of the federal government will be brought to bear to bring that person and his accomplices to justice. I call on Ryan to hold this vote within the next seven days.

    In recent months, Paul Ryan has come under fire for pushing a crime agenda that critics say would release violent criminals from prison—which could further endanger the lives of law enforcement officers.

    Nehlen’s campaign provided reporters with a copy of his prepared remarks, which can be read in full below:

    Thank you so much for joining me today.

    I’m Paul Nehlen and I’m running for Congress in the first Congressional District of Wisconsin to take back our district from the global special interests who control Paul Ryan.

    Paul Ryan is the most open borders, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker member of Congress in either party.

    Everything that Americans despise about their government, Paul Ryan represents.

    Ryan is the embodiment of special interest control, lies, deception, corruption contempt for the people, and the desire to curry favor and approval from far away media elites while disregarding the feelings and aspirations of one’s own constituents.

    Paul Ryan represents arrogance, condescension, and the cultivation of a phony Washington image in place of true sincerity, conviction and connection with common men and women.

    I am not only running against Paul Ryan, but I’m running against an entire system of corporate control over our government that has disenfranchised every single voter in Wisconsin, and millions more across the nation.

    Paul Ryan has sold out his district to his corporate masters. On August 9th, the voters of Wisconsin have an historic opportunity: vote Ryan out and declare your freedom.

    To the voters of Wisconsin, I say: August 9th is Wisconsin’s Independence Day.

    But before going further, I want to address the carnage and bloodshed that has taken place in Dallas, Texas.

    Law and order is breaking down in America. Too many innocent people are living in fear and terror, while the elites, who have created this state of chaos, live comfortably behind their walls, fences, and gates.

    That’s why today—as our police officers across the nation are under attack, and our citizens suffer the consequences of crime spiraling out of control— I’m calling on Paul Ryan to bring up for an emergency vote making the attempted execution of a police officer a federal hate crime punishable by death in all 50 states.

    Thus, ensuring that any time a police officer is killed, the murderer will face the maximum penalty under the law, and the full resources of the federal government will be brought to bear to bring that person and his accomplices to justice.

    I call on Ryan to hold this vote within the next seven days.

    The stakes of Wisconsin’s August 9th election cannot be overstated. One month from today, the voters of Wisconsin have the chance to take back their government and reclaim the people’s house.

    Never have any people of any district had such an extraordinary opportunity to reset the balance of power in America.

    But Paul Ryan and his deep-pocket donors want you to believe this isn’t so. They want you to believe that your vote doesn’t matter. They want you to believe that Paul Ryan is Speaker of the House, and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Yet, as Mr. Brat’s victory in Virginia two years ago demonstrates, no big moneyed corporate donor, no transnational elite, no Washington politician can tell the American people what they must tolerate and who will rule over them.

    Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have the kind of representation you want. Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t entitled to a Speaker who stands up for your voice and your family. Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re stuck with a leader who doesn’t think your family deserves to be protected from terrorism, or open borders, or transnational gangs, or violent criminals.

    With your vote on August 9th, you can save your country from rule by corporate elites.

    With your vote on August 9th, you can dethrone the entire ruling class of America.

    New reports say that in 2017 Congress plans to revive the disastrous Gang of Eight immigration agenda. With your vote on August 9th, you have a chance to save your entire country from open borders.

    New reports say that after November, Congress will move to ratify the job-destroying Trans-Pacific Partnership. With your vote on August 9th, you can save your entire country from globalism. You can save your entire country from ceding sovereignty to the TPP’s global governing commission.

    On August 9th, you have the power to kick out of Washington every corporate executive who thinks American workers are rubes and simpletons, who are unworthy of their time and interest.

    On August 9th, you can kick out every transnational elite for whom national borders are seen as merely obstacles to the flow of cheap goods and labor.

    People have fought wars for less than you can achieve with your vote.

    People have crossed oceans for less than you can achieve with your vote.

    And let me be clear about something else. This election is not about partisan politics—it’s not a race about the differences between Republican or Democratic policies.

    This is an election about entirely different philosophies.

    On the one side, you have Ryan’s philosophy, which governs only to the benefit of a small few: the corporate executives whom he meets in banquet rooms, the lobbyists at the Chamber of Commerce, his donors in Silicon Valley with whom he shares a good chuckle at your expense.

    And on the other side, you have our philosophy, which believes in governing for the benefit of all the people—a philosophy that believes in representing every working mom, dad, student, grandparent, and every single person who calls themselves an American.

    A vote for this philosophy is a vote on behalf of every person who will never sit in a boardroom with Goldman Sachs executives. It’s a vote for every person who will never go out for steak dinners at four star restaurants with Chamber of Commerce lobbyists. It’s a vote for every person who will never visit Denmark or Brussels with foreign bureaucrats and plot and plan how to rule.

    To the Wisconsin voter who asks for nothing more than a secure job, a safe community, and a representative who will fight for them—I ask for your vote, because that is what I can deliver and that is what I promise. My one and only loyalty is to you and no one else.

    Can you name one time when Paul Ryan fought as hard for you and your family as he’s fought for corporate America?

    I’d like to read you something from a man named Dan Golvach.

    Dan’s 25-year-old son, Spencer, was murdered by an illegal immigrant. Spencer was stopped at a red light when his killer decided to use Spencer’s head as target practice. Dan reminds us that, “this wasn’t Syria or Iraq. It was the neighborhood I grew up in.”

    On Father’s Day, Dan asked Paul Ryan to accompany him to the place where Dan will spend every Father’s Day for the rest of his life—his son’s grave. Dan wrote: “This way Speaker Ryan can see first hand what pandering to the cheap illegal labor lobby means to Americans who can’t afford to put a security fence up around their house.”

    But Paul Ryan ignored Dan’s plea.

    Last summer, Kate Steinle’s father came to Washington. He told Congress how “help me, Dad” were the last words he’d ever hear from his daughter, as she lay dying in his arms. And he begged Congress to take action.

    Five months after her death, Paul Ryan voted to reward sanctuary cities with federal grants.

    Today, I’m calling on Paul Ryan to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration—the lobbyists who mean more to Ryan than the American fathers and mothers, who have buried their American children as a result of our nation’s open borders.

    Today, I am calling on Paul Ryan to live under the same conditions, which he’s imposed upon our American communities…

    Paul Ryan, if you will not build a border wall for America, then I am asking you to tear down your wall. If you will not build a wall to honor the mothers and fathers of the dead, if you will not build a wall to protect our children, then, sir, you should tear down your wall and show everyone that you will live under the same conditions as they do.

    People like Paul Ryan and Mark Zuckerberg love open borders so long as they stop at the property lines to their mansions. They ensconce their families with walls and fences, but then lecture us about how we have to be more charitable. And lectures us about how America “is more than our borders.”

    Don’t let one more American child die because Paul Ryan won’t secure the border. Your vote on August 9th can save a life.

    Nehlen has made such an intelligent argument as to why he should replace Ryan. I hope the voters there see it that way too.

    Nehlen Puts Ryan On Defense: Forces Speaker To Defend To Having Wall For Himself But

    Nehlen Puts Ryan On Defense: Forces Speaker To Defend To Having Wall For Himself But Not Country

    House Speaker Paul Ryan is trying to defend his decision to have a personal border wall to protect his home, while refusing to build a border wall to protect America.

    Ryan says that the reason he needs a personal border wall is because he has three children.

    “Having a backyard fence for three dogs and three kids is not a half-bad idea,” Ryan said during his Monday interview with Wisconsin’s NBC15.

    Although Ryan made clear that his children are entitled to play, live and grow up in an environment that’s shielded from external threats, he did not seem sold on the idea that the rest of America’s children should be afforded such protections. When asked if he intended to make “building a wall part of the GOP agenda,” Ryan would not answer.

    Nor did Ryan answer affirmatively when asked specifically if, as House Speaker, he would allow legislation “on to the floor of the House to build a wall along the border with Mexico.”

    Instead, Ryan seemed to indicate that he could perhaps use his position of power to oppose President Trump’s planned wall — noting that he doesn’t necessarily agree with Trump on “how” to secure the border.

    We agree with goal of securing the border. How specifically we secure that border, we will figure that out. In some cases, walls are necessary– what the border patrol experts tell us– and in other cases, they think other things are necessary: high technology, fences and the rest. The point is we agree on the goal of securing the border, no two ways about it. Every Republican agrees with that. The question is, when we get to legislating, we will figure out exactly how to do that.

    Ryan insists “every Republican” supports securing the border. In doing so, Ryan is essentially arguing that even Republicans who have authored legislation that would effectively dissolve the U.S. border — such as John McCain, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, and Lindsey Graham — are as equally committed to border security as Ryan is.

    Ryan’s effort to defend his personal border wall came during an interview with NBC15’s John Stofflet.

    Following the release of a new poll showing Ryan has tanked to well below 50 percent in his primary race, Ryan announced that he would appear on local Wisconsin media.

    During the interview, Ryan was about his primary race on August 9 against Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen.

    Stofflet noted that Nehlen held a press conference on Saturday in front of Ryan’s personal border wall. During the press conference, Nehlen demanded that Ryan either build a wall to protect the American people, or tear down the wall that protects Ryan and his family.

    While Ryan’s controversial 2015 omnibus spending bill rewarded sanctuary cities with federal funding, Ryan failed to provide funding for the mandatory completion of a 700-mile double-layer border fence that Congress promised the American people nearly a decade ago.

    Stofflet said:

    Mr. Speaker you’re in a primary race next month. A couple of polls show that things have tightened up with you and Paul Nehlen. And he actually stood in front of your house– in front of the wall around your house– and had a quote that said, ‘Paul Ryan is the most open borders, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker member of Congress in either Party.’ Now I remind our viewers, Mr. Nehlen is a Republican so you’ll be running against him next month. He asks: ‘Can you name one time Paul Ryan fought as hard for you and your family as he fought for corporate America?’ That’s something I want to give you an opportunity to defend and reply to.

    Despite having been given the explicit opportunity to respond to Nehlen’s accusations, Ryan seemed unable to answer them.

    Ryan did not deny the accusation that he is “the most open borders, pro-Wall Street, anti-worker member of Congress in either party.”

    Nor did Ryan provide viewers with a single example of a time he had fought harder for his constituents than he’s fought for corporate America.

    Ryan similarly did not dispute the polling data which shows Ryan has plummeted to 43 percent in his primary race.

    Instead, the Republican House Speaker simply said that it’s natural for Republican “partisans” to criticize him:

    Look, partisans are going to say what they’re going to say. Opponents are going to try and do flashy things to get attention to make they’re points across. I don’t say expect political opponents to say nice things about me. That’s what political opponents do. Having a backyard fence for three dogs and three kids is not a half-bad idea. Especially when it was built 50 years ago. It’s kind of petty to actually do that, to go to a person’s house.

    During his press conference, Nehlen said Ryan supports open borders so long as it doesn’t extend to the walled estate where Ryan and his family dwell. Nehlen said that other American families do not have the luxury to similarly insulate themselves from the open borders policies Ryan imposes on the nation.

    In his remarks, Nehlen addressed the mother and fathers who have had to bury their children as a result of Ryan’s failure to secure America’s border.

    Paul Ryan… if you will not build a wall to honor the mothers and fathers of the dead, if you will not build a wall to protect our children, then, sir, you should tear down your wall and show everyone that you will live under the same conditions as they do.

    People like Paul Ryan and Mark Zuckerberg love open borders so long as they stop at the property lines to their mansions. They ensconce their families with walls and fences, but then lecture us about how we have to be more charitable. And lectures us about how America “is more than our borders.”


    Nehlen called on Ryan “to release the names of the corporate lobbyists he’s working with on immigration—the lobbyists who mean more to Ryan than the American fathers and mothers, who have buried their American children as a result of our nation’s open borders.”

    In particular, Nehlen mentioned Ryan’s decision to ignore the requests of Jim Steinle (Kate Steinle’s father), and Dan Golvach, whose 25-year old son Spencer was also gunned down by an illegal alien.

    Nehlen noted that, “on Father’s Day, Dan [Golvach] asked Paul Ryan to accompany him to the place where Dan will spend every Father’s Day for the rest of his life—his son’s grave. Dan wrote: ‘This way Speaker Ryan can see first hand what pandering to the cheap illegal labor lobby means to Americans who can’t afford to put a security fence up around their house.’ But Paul Ryan ignored Dan’s plea.”

    When asked about Nehlen’s press conference, Ryan described it as “petty”.

    “It’s kind of petty to actually do that, to go to a person’s house,” Ryan said.

    However, the fathers and mothers, who have lost their children due to illegal immigration, have echoed Nehlen’s argument– pointing out that Ryan shields himself and his family from the immigration policies he imposes upon the American people.

    As George Wilkerson– whose 18-year-old son was tied up, beaten, strangled, set on fire, and tortured to death by his illegal alien classmate while he was on his way home from school– has said:

    [Ryan has] got all the protection in the world: Secret Service, big houses with fences, private schools for his kids where they don’t have to deal with all of the people they’re dumping into our cities and towns. He doesn’t have to deal with any of this. He’s got all the protections in the world.

    Several of the parents whose children were murdered by illegal aliens have endorsed Nehlen in the primary, and have said that Ryan should be tried for “treason” because of his longstanding support of open borders.

    During his NBC15 interview, Ryan said that he stands by his record and argued that the fact that he’s ascended to House Republican leadership proves that he’s “really good” at his job.

    Why would my colleagues in Congress draft me to become the Speaker of the House if they didn’t think I was an effective conservative? The very fact that I’m sitting in this position as Speaker of the House drafted by my own Republican conservative colleagues, I think, is a testament to the fact that I’m really good and effective at my job. And I’m very confident that the people I work for in the first district know that and will respond accordingly.

    Additionally, Ryan used the local media appearance as an opportunity to, once again, make statements that seemed designed to undermine the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential aspirations.

    When asked, Ryan repeatedly refused to say whether he’s “confident that Donald Trump would be a good President” or whether he thinks Trump “can lead this nation.”

    When Ryan was asked if he can “stand up and endorse him [Trump] without reservation,” Ryan told viewers that Trump was not his first choice.

    Well, I certainly think he’d be better than Hillary Clinton. Look, he wasn’t my first choice. Everybody knows that. He and I have had our differences.

    Fox News’ Sean Hannity has said that he’s “sickened” by Ryan’s “unsupportive comments” about the GOP presumptive nominee. Hannity said that he’s never seen Ryan and Republican leaders “fight Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton this hard.”

    In light of Ryan’s effort to “sabotage” the GOP in 2016, Hannity said that it may be time to get a new Speaker:

    This open effort now to sabotage the person that got the most votes in a primary, I’m sick and tired of it, and it’s got to stop, or maybe it’s time to get a new Speaker. If he [Ryan] doesn’t want to get on board, if he doesn’t want to support the candidate… maybe it’s time for new leadership in Congress.

    Hannity also expressed frustration with Ryan’s statements undermining Trump’s plan for immigration reform:

    Go do something else because the American people need a wall for our security, we need to listen to our security experts. With all due respect, Paul Ryan, I trust James Clapper, James Comey, Brennan, Michael Steinbeck, General John Allen, and Mike McCaul on this topic more than I trust you.

    Similarly, on Monday Fox News’ Lou Dobbs addressed Ryan’s behavior this election. “Speaker Ryan has become a tiresome tremendous embarrassment for the GOP,” Dobbs said. “Ryan has made himself a sad spectacle.”

    Dobbs said that Ryan’s has become a “tool” of Republican Party donors and has a long history of pushing trade and immigration polices opposed by the GOP electorate.

    [Ryan’s agenda] is not that of the Party, it’s his own agenda… [Paul Ryan is] a man that joined amnesty and open borders advocate, Luis Gutierrez, in a national campaign for the Chamber of Commerce [on immigration]… [and] who supports free trade at any cost…

    Ryan has spent more of his breath slamming the Republican nominee– the one chosen by a record number of Republican voters– and all the while Ryan is pushing his own absurdly irrelevant agenda instead of working to actually unify the Party behind Trump and Trump’s agenda, that’s shared by millions and millions of voters. Ryan is proving himself to be nothing more than an eager tool of the establishment or their big donors like Paul Singer and Charles Koch or the most powerful lobby in D.C., the Chamber of Commerce. And that appears to be something of a disappointment to some voters in Wisconsin’s first Congressional district
