Speaker Ryan and the bi-partisan Congress’s betrayal of America

Phyllis Schlafly’s statement about the Omnibus Spending bill passed by Congress: “This is a betrayal of the grassroots and the Republican Party,” she said of the omnibus bill. “We thought we were electing a different crowd to stand up for America, and they didn’t. We’re extremely outraged by what Congress has done.”

I firmly believe there are only two Presidential candidates that have the courage and conviction in them to take back America, “To Make America Great Again.” They would be Cruz and Trump.

I am sick and tired of the Washington Cartel and their loyalty to the K-Street Lobbyist, the Chamber of Corruption instead of loyalty to America, the Constitution, the Rule of Law as they continue to betray our trust and their Oath of Office.

Here we go again as they pass a spending bill that violates the trust asked for by Congress as they ran for office. They “Promised” us, “Put me in charge and we will fix things, we will stop Obamacare, we will stop the UnConstitutional orders by this President, i.e. Amnesty in violation of law, excessive spending, excessive debt, reform entitlements, waste and fraud, pork projects.” NONE of that has happened as they continue to fund all of what they promised they would stop.

The Washington Cartel continues to betray our trust. Promise after Promise is broken as they continue to fund this corrupt and incompetent President. I cannot wait until we put an “American” back in the White House. This bi-partisan Congress continues to legally plunder from hard working Americans as they reward the lazy and the abusive. They ignore the trillions of dollars in cost as a result of this illegal invasion they refuse to secure our border and enforce our laws. Deportation is not a bad word, it is our obligation and the TRUTH is they will leave on their own and most won’t come if they know the laws will be enforced.

They continue to mount debt that is inconceivable and perhaps impossible for our grandchildren and perhaps their children will be able to pay off.

I do believe this election to be “the last hope for America.”

We must take action NOW. We must confront this invasion of illegal aliens, policies that allow terrorists, drug cartels, out of control spending, ever expanding debt, and the attack on basic Freedoms, Traditional Values, Freedom of Association, Freedom of Religion, 2nd Amendment, Illegal Search and Seizure, State’s Rights and Limited Federal Power, Judicial Abuse of Power and Illegal Executive Orders. We must protect and preserve those basic God given rights our Founder’s recognized and placed into our Constitution, safeguarding the government (including the courts) at all cost. Americans have fought and died for these basic Freedoms. We must guard these basic rights and Freedoms against all enemies “foreign and domestic” and those that would do harm to America NOW. We must protect these basic liberties for our children and grandchildren and make America Great Again.

Our grassroots voters are “mad as hell” and are not going to take it anymore as they are outraged over this continued betrayal of trust.

This Omnibus spending bill brokered by Speaker Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is a clear example of betrayal to all Americans. Christmas is alive and well in Washington, as Congress gives Obama a bag of goodies in this bill by funding all of his illegal pet projects and throwing Americans under the bus.

I love the Donald’s condemnation of this betrayal.

“If anyone needed more evidence of why the American people are suffering at the hands of their own government, look no further than the budget deal announced by Speaker Ryan. In order to avoid a government shutdown, a cowardly threat from an incompetent President, the elected Republicans in Congress threw in the towel and showed absolutely no budget discipline.

The American people will have to absorb higher deficits, greater debt, less economic liberty and more corporate welfare. Congress cannot seem to help itself in bending to every whim of special interests. How can they face their constituents when they continue to burden our children and grandchildren with debts they will never be able to repay? Our government is failing us, so we must do something about it. Who knows how bad things will be when the next administration comes in and has to pick up the pieces?

The only interest not being served by our government is the American people. It is time we imposed budget discipline by holding the line on spending, getting rid of waste, fraud and abuse, and by taking on our debt. To do these things, we need a President who can lead the fight to hold Congress and the rest of government accountable. Together, we will Make America Great Again.”

It is clear Both Parties have betrayed America. Enough is Enough. I believe America is ready for a change and Congress keeps proving why we need a change. Maybe most of Congress should be changed out. “At least a good start would be those who voted for this Omnibus Spending bill.

As so eloquently stated by others, “The Omnibus disaster was a $1.1 trillion in-kind campaign donation to Donald Trump” or perhaps Senator Ted Cruz.

Senator Ted Cruz’s liberty score is 97%; Speaker Paul Ryan’s liberty score is 56% and that is generous; I warned about Paul Ryan’s agenda and his devotion to the Washington Cartel, his contempt for fixing the problems, his support of Amnesty and failure to address border security and his failure to honoring America and Americans with his failed leadership and his failure to restore sanity in Washington and he has proven me right.

In fact the establishment has gone after the Tea Party Patriots who want to take America back and restore our Founding Principles. Power has an uncanny ability to corrupt and Washington is a clear example. We need Warriors in defense of liberty, to protect America and Americans.

As they continue their attack on Tea Party Patriots, on outsiders like Trump and Cruz, they continue to prove these two guys are right and why they are needed. Washington will never fix itself and especially if we keep returning those to power that have proven their contempt for we the people. The Power Brokers in Washington continue to try and convince you Trump or Cruz cannot beat Hillary. First of all it is a lie and secondly if were true there would be no little or hope for America continuation of a liar and corrupt politician in the White House.
