Who Sets The Agenda

If Donald Trump becomes the president it is he who sets the agenda, not Paul Ryan.


According to Pat Buchanan:

Forty-eight hours after Donald Trump wrapped up the Republican nomination with a smashing victory in the Indiana primary, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he could not yet support Trump.

Ryan is a congressman from Wisconsin. He has never won a statewide election. As number two on Mitt Romney’s ticket, he got waxed by Joe Biden. He was compromise choice as speaker, only after John Boehner went into in his Brer Rabbit “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” routine.

Who made Ryan the conscience of conservatism?

Who made Ryan keeper of the keys of true Republicanism?

Yes, exactly, since when did Paul Ryan command the “conservative values”?  He wants open borders, supports Syrian refugees into this country, giving big bucks to the Democrats, like Obama. Just who does he work for anyway? Certainly not us, the people.

Trump “inherits something … that’s very special to a lot of us,” said Ryan, “the party of Lincoln and Reagan and Jack Kemp.”

But Trump did not “inherit” anything. He won the nomination of the Republican Party in an epic battle in the most wide-open race ever, in which Trump generated the largest turnout and greatest vote totals in the history of Republican primaries.

What is Ryan up to?

He is pandering to the Trump-hating Beltway media and claiming the leadership of a Republican establishment routed and repudiated in the primaries, not only by that half of the party that voted for Trump, but also by that huge slice of the party that voted for Ted Cruz.

The hubris here astonishes. A Republican establishment that has been beaten as badly as Carthage in the Third Punic War is now making demands on Scipio Africanus and the victorious Romans.

I’d like to know when Paul Ryan became the King of the Republican party. How dare he dictate to Trump what “his agenda” is and tell Trump he has to bow to it?

Someone should instruct Paul Ryan that losers do not make demands. They make requests. They make pleas.

Paul Ryan, in declaring that he cannot now support Trump, and imposing conditions to earn his support, has crawled out on a long limb.

Trump cannot capitulate. He has to saw it off.

This is one Private Ryan we cannot save.

Let’s hope that Trump does not capitulate to a worn out establo like Paul Ryan whose agenda does not match Trump’s. Trump wants to build a wall. Paul Ryan could have funded a wall but he did NOT.

And that is only ONE difference between the non-conservative, non-principled Ryan. Right now in my estimation Trump looks and sounds more like a conservative than Ryan. So Ryan needs to get over it and get behind Trump and stop acting like a damn fool.

    Yo Pepp….Thanks for posting this. I believe this was on Townhall where I read it the first time. Ryan does need to be “Cantorized”

    oohrah!!! 🙂

      Yo Willi, Oh was it on there? I didn’t know that. Oh well. Yes, indeed, Ryan needs to be “Canterized” or “Cauterized” and if Sarah Palin has any backing he may very well be. He has a good contender for running against him this time around.


  2. Good post Pepp! Trump won by a record of primary voters and Ryan needs to pay attention to that. I realize Trump may have to move a little on his issues to get more RNC support, but no way should he kiss Ryan’s ass. I don’t think Trump will as that would betray his primary supporters.

    I’m waiting to see the results of the meeting, so I’m on solid ground to form an opinion. I hoping my opinion will not consist of a bunch of cuss words and more hatred for the elites than I already have.


    • peppermintfarm said:

      Dave, I agree. Ryan needs to stop trying to push whatever agenda he has because he’s not the nominee but just the speaker of the house. I don’t know who he thinks he is. Does he want to push Trump in accepting his open borders, refugee agenda? Or spending bills?

      Yes I guess we’ll find out more with the meeting.


  3. Oh my, Buchanan does have a way of making the point. So Ryan crawled way out on a branch — and it wasn’t even in an olive tree. Gee, Ryan is acting like he won something.

    Someone should go back and tell him keep sucking up to those globalists and maybe they will throw him a bone. Don’t expect Trump to. The nerve of this guy thinking everything revolves around him. I doubt he could have tried that with Cruz but he has the chutzpah on Trump. I see the photo ops of Ryan walking around the capitol like he owns the place. It’s time his big balloon was popped.


    • peppermintfarm said:

      Bull, that’s what gets me. You’d think Ryan was the nominee instead of Trump. He needs to show some respect for who the voters chose.

      That’s right, Ryan is a globalist too. Trump is not. How does he think Trump is going to buy into that when he said “no globalism” in his foreign policy speech.

      No he wouldn’t have tried that with Cruz because he wouldn’t have to since Cruz is a globalist too and there also would be no wall.

      I hope his big inflated balloon pops soon. He does think he owns everything and what a failure he is actually giving the store away to Obama. He sucks.


      • The more I think about crin’ Ryan the more p**-off I get. Now they want to tell him what he “needs to do” to get their support. Then they want to give him advice on defeating Hillary Clinton. Scumbags. The only one here with a record of doing something is Trump.

        Plus they are all making suggestions on who his VP should be. Then telling Trump he needs to reach out to others.What? He has. There was no reason for Ryan opening his mouth to inject himself in the race. Except to say remember me, see how powerful I am. And if there is going to be any unity, Ryan is going to take credit for it. STFU you morons.

        They all want to give him advice? Please.


        • peppermintfarm said:

          Bull, you and me both. He makes me want to scream. I guess they’re having this meeting today and all we hear is “Ryan has got to know Trump”. All Ryan needs to know is that Trump is the nominee and get off his high horse and work with him. Ryan is no conservative IMHO. So Ryan gets his name plastered all over the place and who cares about that pip squeak?

          Yeah that VP thing is getting on my nerves too. That’s Trump’s decision, nobody else.
          STFU is right!

          Advice? From a failed Congress? It’s laughable.


  4. PeppGurrrl!! Remember when we thought Buchanan was losing it..this time he is spot effing on!!


    • peppermintfarm said:

      Hi Nee, so good to see you! Yeah I don’t always agree with Buchanan but this time he is spot on like you said. I’ve never seen a candidate have to go through so much after being the presumptive nominee and it’s ridiculous.


  5. I scratched my Romney/Ryan sticker off my truck long ago. Both are embarrassing


    • peppermintfarm said:

      Gar, you got that right. Both of them come out of mothballs behaving as if they won something instead of the losers they were.


  6. The RINOs have no clothes.
