    RUSH LIMBAUGH: HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS DID BIDDING OF GOP DONORS, READ ORDAINED SCRIPT

    RUSH LIMBAUGH: HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS DID BIDDING OF GOP DONORS, READ ORDAINED SCRIPT
    Twitter/Rush Limbaugh

    Popular radio show host Rush Limbaugh is slamming the House Freedom Caucus for facilitating the donor-class’ push to anoint Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
    as Speaker of the House.

    Limbaugh suggested that the House Freedom Caucus members engaged in large-scale Kabuki dance in conjunction with the Republican establishment to ensure Ryan’s Speakership.

    After Ryan issued his list of demands for conservative lawmakers, “you would not think that the Freedom Caucus, the conservatives in the House, the Tea Party caucus, whatever you want to call them, no way would they go along with this, no way under the sun would they go along with this,” Limbaugh said. “But it looks like enough of them will.”

    “This is how we get… I don’t want to say ‘played,’ folks, but I’m telling you: The script is written offsite, backstage. We don’t see that. We see everybody playing their part. Including the Freedom Caucus members,” Limbaugh said.

    In supporting Paul Ryan’s Speakership, the House Freedom Caucus violated its founding charter: namely, that its members vote as a bloc, and only act if they have an 80 percent consensus. The group did not have an 80 percent consensus to elect Ryan as Speaker. However, the members decided to not act as a bloc, but instead fracture so that enough members could propel Ryan to his new position of power. While the House Freedom Caucus’ official position is opposed to Ryan, many members are going to vote for him anyways.

    As a result, after a year-long intraparty battle that began with the ousting of former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and culminated with the retirement of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)
    and the rejection of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), House Leadership will be no more representative of the interests of Republican voters under its new Leadership than it was under the Boehner/Cantor regime.In fact, more than 9 in 10 Republican voters disagree with Paul Ryan’s position on the critical issues of trade and immigration.

    “Paul Ryan is the new Cantor,” Limbaugh declared, “in terms of moving the donor agenda.”

    Limbaugh explains this year-long House leadership bait-and-switch– i.e. replacing Cantor with a leader who is far more at odds with the views of the Republican electorate– was enabled by members of the House Freedom Caucus.

    Limbaugh explains that members of the House Freedom Caucus did not oppose Boehner on substance or the fact that he refused to represent the interests of their Republican constituents, but rather, they opposed him for personal tiffs that had nothing to do with getting better representation for their constituents:

    I think a lot of you would be shocked to learn why Freedom Caucus members really didn’t like Boehner. It had nothing to do with ideas. It had to do with Boehner and the way he was running the place. Chairmanships, punishments, this kind of thing. They wanted him out of there for those reasons, not because he wasn’t implementing conservative agenda. You’d probably be surprised.

    Indeed, on the issue of immigration, which Pat Buchanan has described as “the issue of the 21st Century,” many House Freedom Caucus members supported and encouraged House leadership’s globalist agenda to implement open borders.

    A new PBS Documentary, which aired for the first time earlier this week, revealed that Paul Ryan had nearly succeeded in passing amnesty in 2014. The documentary details how Ryan’s stealth campaign to pass amnesty was aided by many members of the so-called conservative House Freedom Caucus. For instance, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC)
    has been vocal about his his role in the Ryan-Gutierrez 2014 amnesty push. In the documentary, he felt the prospect of enacting the amnesty plan was “invigorating.” Similarly Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) was a member of the House’s “Gang of Eight” effort to pass amnesty until public pressure forced him to drop out.Few knew just how close Ryan and Rubio were to enacting mass amnesty and increasing the nation’s record-high immigration levels.

    The PBS Documentary explains:

    It is Monday June 9th [2014]. After months of work, and countless one-on-one conversations, Paul Ryan and
    Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) , have carefully crafted a bill they know the majority of Republicans can agree on… They have the votes. They make an appointment to see Boehner, on Thursday [June 12th].

    However, at 9pm on Tuesday, June 10th, as the pro-amnesty Washington Republicans are out enjoying “drinks after work to celebrate their whip-count,” the “unimaginable” happens. Eric Cantor has lost his primary election to little-known populist challenger
    Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA)
    , who hammered him for his expansionist position on immigration.Limbaugh warns that if “the donor-class push” to “make Paul Ryan Speaker,” “get rid of Trump, and have Rubio or Jeb win the White House” is successful, a mass amnesty plan will be enacted by 2018.

    Limbaugh explained that for the Republican Establishment “the dream” would be:

    “Jeb or Rubio in the White House; Ryan Speaker of the House. Then in the first 12 months of the Rubio or Jeb administration, first 12-to-18 months, the donor-class agenda is implemented, including amnesty and whatever else they want. That is the objective here. That’s what I think all this adds up to.”

    Is it not abundantly clear that the "Freedom Caucus" is infested with Washington Establishment loyalists who are now falling on the sword to get their man in this powerful position so they can dictate legislation which moves forward and complete their fundamental transformation of America into a corporatist/Chamber of Commerce controlled state?

    To support Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House is to support our Global Governance Crowd and their FAST TRACK, WTO, NAFTA, GATT, CAFTA, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, all used to circumvent America First trade policies, while fattening the fortunes of international corporate giants who have no allegiance to America or any nation.

    That way they have downstream "cover" by saying. Oh, he said he wouldn't do this and now we can't stop him"..More political tricks and stunts by a group of dishonest and manipulative career politicians. end their careers at the next election.

    Let's see how many of the illegals that they are promoting will keep them in office. I won't vote for any Congressperson that votes for Ryan.
