The Speaker of THE REPUBLICAN HOUSE, Paul Ryan (Photo: AP)
Congressman Paul Ryan, the REPUBLICAN Speaker of the House has to be bucking for a new title. It seems like he is running to be “enabler in chief” when he said the other day that Donald Trump is new to all of this. “This”, meaning being President. That was his defense for the first six months of the Trump administration. That’s what his defense is for when he tries to tell you that Donald Trump’s conversations with FBI Director Jim Comey were just “learning curves”. Paul Ryan has cashed in his credibility as well as his dignity to kiss this woefully uniformed President’s ass.
The argument that Trump was new to this is so ridiculous it defies explanation. When you are one of 45 people in a 230 year history of the greatest nation on the earth you better have a working knowledge of what you are doing. Other Presidents who were not in government were new to this. Take Dwight Eisenhower for example. He was a General but we had other Presidents who were in the military. We had Presidents who were one term Governors, our last President served 4 years in the Senate with a scant resume. But the aforementioned had three things Trump does not.
1. A sense of history.
2. A willingness to learn.
3. A sense of proprietary and decorum.
My issue with President Trump since he became a candidate is he never took the time to learn anything about Foreign Policy or how the government works.
Look, if all the dumb asses in this country want a President just like them, hey great for you. That plays well in the “American Idol/Duck Dynasty” culture some of us live in and embrace.
But once that act leaves this country, it would be hoped that somewhere along the line, this President studied up on things.
But he didn’t.
So we are left essentially with a President with these characteristics:
1. An accomplished liar and bull shitter.
2. An expert who is kicking the can down the road. “I’ll let ya know later”. “I’ll tell you when I’m ready”. “You must be a liar because you’re calling me one!”
3 A person who cannot withstand any heat whatsoever. A President, a man so insecure in his own inadequacies that he must tell lies to prop himself up about the most minute of things.
All that is fine and good for your drunken uncle or that oafish boss you have to invite to your kid’s graduation.
But to be President of the United States?
Absolutely not.
There will be some like Paul Ryan who will defend him. But Ryan missed “The code of the bull shitter” on this one. If you are to defend someone,  it has to make sense and have a modicum of truth to it.
Ryan’s saying “It’s all new to him” doesn’t pass the smell or commonsense test.
Whether Donald Trump beats this thing back is anyone’s guess. There seems to be mounting evidence and connections that are too fantastical to chalk up as a coincidence. But no matter what happens, Paul Ryan has become one of the Trump “disposables” who will wilt under the judgment of public opinion and ultimately history.

Congressman Matt Cartwright announced InnaVenture Pacific Northwest National Laboratory received $250,000 in Small Business Vouchers (SBV) to work with InnaVenture LLC, Wilkes-Barre. SBV facilitates access to the Department of Energy (DOE)’s national labs, enabling them to tap into the intellectual and technical resources needed to overcome critical technology challenges for their advanced energy products and gain a global competitive advantage.
DOE provides these vouchers to small businesses for making our factories smarter, cleaner and better through next generation advanced manufacturing materials and process technologies. Next generation materials are those that can enable the manufacture of low-cost, high-performance products with broad applicability, including for energy intensive and clean energy industries.
“Small businesses supply the majority of new jobs created each year. And small businesses that work on advanced energy technologies play an important role in ensuring our nation’s energy security and independence,” said Rep. Cartwright.

The Jokers are in charge, and yet, for all the buffoonery, the economy is not only improving but growing. Jobs are being created and the need for government assisted health care is decreasing.
I can't stand any of them, but if I can continue to put food on my table and put some aside, I am voting for him 2020.
