ELDER PATRIOT –Yesterday, Speaker of the House, Republican Paul Ryan, finally told the people that he would be voting for Donald Trump. Ryan stopped far short of an endorsement, however, especially when one considers the Speaker’s well-publicized reluctance to back Trump over the past month. So, what is behind Ryan’s refusal to give Trump his 100% backing?
Speaker Ryan is an advocate for the North American Union and the cornerstone of Donald Trump’s platform, controlling our borders and our national identity, is diametrically opposite to Ryan’s vision for the formation of such an entity.
“The liberal media and now, apparently, the chairman of the Republican Party, have objected to Trump’s comments about criminal aliens. In fact, what Trump has done is jeopardize a plan that goes way beyond mere amnesty for illegals, and which has been on the drawing board for more than a decade. Simply put, the plan is to submerge the sovereignty of the United States of America and politically integrate the U.S., Canada, and Mexico into a trilateral entity called the North American Union.
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) calls it a “North American Community,” as if the corrupt culture and government of Mexico can be made to mesh with democratic systems in the U.S. and Canada. It means open borders and more criminal aliens in the U.S.
Accuracy in Media attended a conference on the topic of North American economic and political integration in 2007 which included proposals for a North American Court of Justice (with the authority to overrule a decision of the U.S. Supreme Court), a North American Trade Tribunal, and a Charter of Fundamental Human Rights for North America, also dubbed the North American Social Charter.”
“It turns out that Trump has only scratched the surface of a scandal that threatens American sovereignty and would make it easier for millions more Mexicans to come into the U.S. completely legally.”
So as Britain wrestles with their Brexit from the European Union over their loss of sovereignty to Brussels (and in particular to Germany a country they defeated in WWII,) Ryan is still forging ahead with George W. Bush’s plan for a single North American governing body.
As Europe deals with increased crime resulting from the irresponsible immigration policy of the European Union, Paul Ryan ignores the same dynamic at play in the U.S. where thirty-four percent of federal prisoners are Hispanic even though they only comprise 17% our population.
Similarly, Hispanics put a disproportional stress on our social welfare system accessing federal aid at a rate 30% greater than their representation as a part of our overall population.
Beyond all of that is their assault on the United States’ unique and carefully cultivated view that the protection of our freedoms lies with the people and that begins with limited government. According to Pew Research, by a 46% margin Hispanics favor bigger government over a smaller one, and now we know so does Paul Ryan.
Finally there is the Hispanic acceptance of corruption and their penchant for socialism. Venezuela, once a proud country with a vibrant economy has descended into total anarchy as a result of the socialist policies the people there voted for.
This past January, the newly elected mayor of Temixco, Mexico was assassinated one day after taking office. Gisela Mota had promised, “that her fight against crime would be frontal and direct.” The drug cartels delivered their response quickly and decisively.
The importance of that event was clearly illustrated when Mexican rioters at a Donald Trump rally issued this warning to him:
The significance of this is the underlying belief of a large number of Mexican immigrants that they consider the use of violence to be an acceptable political tool as evidenced by their destructive and threatening behavior outside of Trump’s rallies.
Among his words yesterday he said, “House Republicans are helping shape that Republican vision by offering a bold policy agenda, by offering a better way ahead. Donald Trump can help us make it a reality.”
Someone has to tell the Speaker that Trump has already laid out an agenda that rank and file Republicans have overwhelmingly supported proven by their election of him over sixteen of the party’s “outstanding” insiders. It is not incumbent upon Donald Trump to help the House Republicans it’s the House Republicans responsibility to support Trump. Trump’s agenda is the people’s agenda. Except where that agenda squares with Trump’s agenda, voters have rejected the Speaker’s agenda.
If the House Republicans’ agenda had represented the desires of their rank and file
Trump would never have run for president much less been able to win the party’s nomination.
Speaker Ryan knows all of this yet, in his arrogance, he remains persistent in his attempt to thwart the will of the people. This is not what we should expect from the leader of the “peoples’ house.”
In his 1986 State of the Union speech Ronald Reagan reminded Congress that, “Government growing beyond our consent had become a lumbering giant, slamming shut the gates of opportunity, threatening to crush the very roots of our freedom.”
Paul Ryan had earlier resorted to explaining withholding his support for Donald Trump because he was protecting the party of Ronald Reagan. If that’s true then Mr. Ryan must be made to explain his role in leading Republican support for funding bigger and bigger government. The Speaker should also heed these words of the Gipper from the same speech, “What brought America back? The American people brought us back — with quiet courage and common sense; with undying faith that in this nation under God the future will be ours, for the future belongs to the free.”
Speaker Ryan, it’s time for you to start listening to the people.
