NO INTEGRITY IN THE "CONSERVATIVE" FREEDOM CAUCUS.

The article below gives the whole story, but when only two of them , Gohmert and Weber from Texas, keep their word and vote against Paul Ryan, it clearly shows they have no gonads and no integrity. We all know Ryan is part of the Republican establishment. After all, he was Romney's running mate. Going along just to get along will never benefit the "conservatives" in Congress. Ryan will be Boehner.2. He will use and betray conservatives by working with Obama and Pelosi as the establishment has done for years.

It is so frustrating when Tea Party people elect new members of Congress , and then they do not keep their promises and become part of the political class that only wants bigger government and more welfare for the "poor" and more benefits for foreigners instead of for American citizens.

I will never donate one penny to reelect any of them. I SUPPORT TRUMP, AND I DO NOT HAVE TO GIVE HIM ANY MONEY BECAUSE HE IS SELF FUNDED. HE IS AGAINST POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND FOR DEPORTING ILLEGALS. HE IS A PROUD BILLIONAIRE AND A TRUE AMERICAN.

The Republicans who didn't vote for Ryan


 
 

Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) handily won the votes of nearly all his fellow Republicans in Thursday's Speaker election, with the exception of a handful of dissenters.

Ryan won the vote to succeed outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) with 236 votes, well above the 218 needed for a simple majority. But nine Republicans voted instead for Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), a long shot who was the only other Speaker candidate going into the GOP's closed-door nomination vote on Wednesday.

Webster, like Ryan, did not vote in Thursday's election. Although in January, during Boehner's reelection to the House's top job, Webster voted for himself.

The nine Webster supporters were Reps. Dave Brat (Va.), Curt Clawson (Fla.), Louie Gohmert (Texas), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Walter Jones (N.C.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Bill Posey (Fla.), Randy Weber (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.).

After Ryan overwhelmingly won Wednesday's nomination vote for Speaker, Webster, a former Florida state Speaker, said he didn't want his colleagues to vote for him during the full House election.

"I don’t really want them to nominate me," Webster said. "This is done."

Webster won three fewer votes on Thursday than he did in January, but he did win 43 votes on Wednesday, meaning that some Republicans who backed him in the secret-ballot election switched their votes to Ryan on the House floor.

The conservative Freedom Caucus initially endorsed Webster for Speaker earlier this month in a move that contributed to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) decision to abandon his bid for the job.

But many prominent members of the Freedom Caucus ultimately voted for Ryan on the floor Thursday, including Chairman Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Reps. Raúl Labrador (Idaho), Matt Salmon (Ariz.), Justin Amash (Mich.), Mark Meadows (N.C.) and Tim Huelskamp (Kan.).

By the end, it became clear that Ryan had secured more than enough votes to win the election, a contrast with the narrow vote in January, when 25 Republicans voted against Boehner. In the last moments of the roll call, the final, 236th vote came from none other than the outgoing Speaker.

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
