    Republicans dumped McCarthy because the mainstream media pounced on a statement he made. It's ironic that the media was outraged by a one liner by McCarthy but not by the deaths of a U.S. Ambassador and two former Navy Seals. The mainstream media is the secret to the democrat party's success. If all the investigative reporters in the mainstream media hadn't retired and if they investigated the cover up of the murder of a U.S. Ambassador the same way they investigated a 3rd rate burglary during the Nixon administration, Obama would have been laughed out of town a long time ago and Hillary would be in federal prison.

    To whitehall: Exactly so.

    Everything that is wrong with this country went wrong because of television. Print press could never have done the damage that television has been doing since 1960.

    “You cannot put the genie back in the bottle” has been said about nuclear weapons. That is doubly true of television, but with television the genie can be driven away from the public trough simply by eliminating the advertising tax deduction. Let television pay corporate taxes instead of passing advertising costs onto the backs of the rest of us.

    Bottom line: If the relationship between press and government is not antagonistic there is no reason for a free press.

    Anyway, these three threads are for anybody who is fed up with the evils of a constitutionally protected free press. The American people will be just fine with freedom of speech; they do not need television turd-maggots selling government policies.

    Conservative voters refusing to believe that Romneycare was not socialized medicine is why Romney & Ryan lost the election:

    Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise of traditional media is empowering Republican “insurgents” and preventing establishment Republicans from compromising more with Democrats.​

    You might say that there is no other side when the media lies like hell to promote big government. There are facts, and there are media facts:

    Now, according to Romney, people “get their news on the web” and “they tend to read those things which they agree with.” He said people are “not seeing the other side” and “not even getting the same facts” while “we have commentators” on left-leaning and right-leaning cable news channels “who are hyperbolic in expressing their views on issues.”

    Romney’s pal already has the support of the MSM; nevertheless, Ryan knows he better get “conditions” before the public votes next year. Every member of the House has to be reelected every two years. Ryan can do a whole lot of “compromising” between now and November 2016. Then kicking his sorry ass out like Boehner's “resignation” starts all over again. Any conservative who gives that sharpshooter carte blanche deserves to be booted out in the next election.

    Finally, it is not a matter of standing firm on a few no-retreat issues. It comes down to a speaker who will not roll over for the Democrats or the president. Instead of running scared every time television’s turd-maggots tell them that shutting down the government is a losing strategy, conservatives need to bring home one message: Doing nothing is better than bipartisan legislation that never gives Constitution-loving Americans a damn thing. President Coolidge said it this way:

    It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones. Calvin Coolidge

    I still do not know if conservatives in the House are caving in. The first article seems to say that Paul Ryan did not get the carte blanche he is after:

    So, heading into the meeting with Ryan—which began just after 4 p.m. on Wednesday—there was near-unanimous opposition to Ryan in the House Freedom Caucus. Like Breitbart News, Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported that it was “unlikely” that Ryan received the endorsement of the Freedom Caucus. Almost every member, save for a few like Reps. Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) and Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) opposed a Ryan Speakership—and they were agreeing to the meeting simply to be fair.

    On the other hand the New York Times said it was a done deal:

    A strong majority of anti-establishment conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus voted on Wednesday night to support Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin for House speaker, assuring that he will have the votes to secure the post next week and averting a leadership crisis for Republicans.

    The one thing that stands at with people like Ryan, Hillary Clinton the Chicago sewer rat et al. is the media tells us how smart they are. To me, it is not smart when liars lie knowing there is no penalty getting caught lying. The sewer cannot open his mouth without lying (I think this pic is photoshopped. Nobody has wind sails that big):

    The Fifth Amendment is needed by everybody except government officials who lie with impunity. Everybody in government lies under oath, while Ryan is taking all the best of it because he was not sworn in. Hillary’s lies are not hampered by an oath:

    p.s. You can bet that Hillary Clinton will take the Fifth if she ever ends up in a criminal court.

    The suck up is now the speaker:
    Paul Ryan was pushing the TPP months ago:
    Aside from Curtis Ellis’ headline, please, please, please, read this article to learn about a few items the new suck up agrees with:

    Obamatrade hands over U.S. sovereignty to international panel

    NOTE: Surprise, surprise, the filthy traitor also has his nose right up the president’s ass.

    Secretary of State John Kerry says China and Russia could also join the pact. Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines also have expressed interest in signing up.​

    p.s. The filthy piece of garbage dare not mention that his pals in Communist Vietnam will be welcomed with open arms as soon as possible.

    Ryan’s nose up the president’s ass will get excrement over his beard. Wags are sure to call him SHIT-FACE.

    It seems a small minority of members are dead set against all Democrats and the "establishment Republicans" This minority dominates the discussion / debate on most issues, usually echoing each other or some claimed authority.

    Most are anti government, seem to be followers of Grover Norquist and would like to see government shrunk to a size he and they could drown it in a bathtub.

    [I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.]

    Most oppose taxes, gun control, Obamacare, abortion, equal rights for women and minorities, including gays and lesbians, liberals and progressives and claim to be conservatives.

    So what is a conservative in the US in the 21st Century? What do they want, what do they hope to destroy?
