Sarah Palin is adding her name to those who are outraged by Paul Ryan’s refusal to endorse Donald Trump. I’m outraged but not shocked. Paul Ryan is an open borders kind of guy and Donald Trump wants to close the border. Paul Ryan wants an unlimited amount of Muslims from radical countries to be allowed into the United States. Donald Trump wants to wait until we have a way to actually vet the “refugees” before we allow entrance. Paul Ryan favors TPP which strips US sovereignty on immigration and businesses within the United States among other giveaways to Third World Countries. Trump opposes the one sided PP deal.
But Palin has taken her displeasure to the next step. She has endorsed Paul Ryan’s primary opponent, Wisconsin businessman, Paul Nehlen. She says that Paul Ryan’s political career is over and that he wants Trump to lose to give him a clear shot at running in 2020. She says that she expects Ryan to be Cantored. That is a reference to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s surprise defeat by first time politician, Dave Brat. Cantor was thrown out of office by voters who feel he betrayed them on amnesty for illegals and in the many surrenders in budget fights.
Palin made the following comments:
“I think Paul Ryan is soon to be Cantored, as in Eric Cantor. His political career is over but for a miracle because he has so disrespected the will of the people … For him to already come out and say who he will not support was not a wise decision of his.”
“I will do whatever I can for Paul Nehlen. This man is a hard-working guy and is so in touch with the people. Their problem is they feel so threatened at this point that their power, their prestige, their purse will be adversely affected by the change that’s coming with Trump and someone like Paul Nehlen that they’re not thinking straight right now.”
I don’t know if Ryan will be defeated, but consider this, even though Ted Cruz won in a rout in Wisconsin, Donald Trump won in Ryan’s district easily and Ryan’s opponent has already endorsed Donald Trump for president. Furthermore, Trump can get Ryan booted as the head of the republican national convention in Cleveland, marginalizing him.
