GOP's Moral Hypocrisy: If Paul Ryan Is The "Conscience", Intellectual Leader" And "Heart & Soul of The Republican Party", Then The Republicans Clearly Have No Soul. (With Samantha Bee)

1. Illustrated: The Conservative Media's "Echo Chamber" Designed To Increase Partisanship At The Cost Of Truth (For Profit?... Yes!)
2. Outlining The Kochs Treasonous Agenda: Proofs That The Koch Brothers OWN The Right Wing & Thus The GOP Could Be Renamed "KOCH"
3. FLASHBACK: The Tea Party Wasn't Authentic Because Outside Groups (Fox News & The Kochs) Created, Organized And Spread It
4. GOP Treason Tactics: Documenting Some Of The Obstruction Of Justice Attempts By The Republicans Using Memos (Such As the Nunes Memo)

This is just a run through Paul Ryan's outright hypocrisy that is somehow worthy of respect by our media since it represents what the GOP stands for. So now we know the GOP stands for lies and deceit and that is OK.
Paul Ryan: Portrait in Courage | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS - Did you know that handsome people can be bad, too? We've got just the Paul Ryan to prove it.

OK. So lets summarize what we know of Paul Ryan;

Paul Ryan's career is seen as the heart and soul of the Republican Party. Lets see what its made of...

Not true. The "southern strategy" (picking on colored people) has been the GOP's main strategy since Nixon. So a lie.

Clearly GOP supports racism in action if not in words...

Totally accurate;

BREAKING: Nazism Has Been Repackaged as "Conservatism"

Since Paul Ryan and the GOP were only bowing to public pressure in asking Trump to pretend to be less racist, they had no problem backing down from these media induced remarks....

Paul Ryan just goes around and repeats back truisms as if he agrees with the interviewer....

He probably says, "I made alot of money betraying the American people kids... but don't ever say that. We have convinced our base, through our media channel ,that what we are doing is the opposite! LMAO!"

Notice that while denying it, Paul Ryan basically makes a case of party over country...

To get this bill passed through the GOP is willing to support Trump through a ton of immoral (generally hidden) traditional GOP positions proving they are the hypocrites thie lies suggest they are. So alot of the GOP are retiring as these many lies are hard, currently, to get through to the people so they are passing along the torch of treason to the next generation of Koch stooges and GOP traitors (or idiot sociopaths).,...

If Trump SAID it was a Muslim ban then that's what it is. He is the President. He pushed for the ban. He called it what is was as he is the one that created it.

There is no treason the GOP won't flirt with to help Trump out till they can get thier way (including obstruction of justice... which I have a feeling they have done before)...

Given GOP hypocrisy around impeachment (protecting Trump with Obstruction of Justice), listening to them about "Rule Of Law", "Tyranny" "Dictatorships", or anything really, is just plain hypocrisy or inept reporting (read a history book before "reporting", "journalists"!)

Washington Post: The rising backlash to Paul Ryan’s conservatism

In the days since House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) announced that he will not seek reelection this year, much of the commentary has focused on his failures. Barring a sudden bout of legislative productivity, Ryan will relinquish the speaker’s gavel with a deficit-exploding tax cut for corporations and the rich as his only significant achievement. Fortunately, his career-defining goals of privatizing Social Security, converting Medicare into a voucher system and dismantling the safety net remain unfulfilled. And then, of course, there is his humiliating failure, dating back to the 2016 campaign, to stand up to President Trump.
Ryan’s legacy, however, is far bigger than any single policy or political battle. He has spent his career advocating an ideology that divides Americans into “makers” and “takers” and pushes the economic interests of the former at the expense of the latter. By putting a friendly face on punishing, plutocratic policies, Ryan hoodwinked a credulous media establishment into believing that he was an earnest wonk instead of the cruel reactionary he really is. And although his ideas have mostly stalled at the federal level, they have thrived in Republican-controlled states around the country — to devastating effect.
Recently, the consequences of Ryan-style conservatism have provoked a growing backlash, demonstrated in the teacher demonstrations in Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kentucky and Arizona. In Oklahoma, where teachers this month staged a nine-day walkouttax cuts for the wealthy in 2004 were followed by deep cuts to spending on public services. These cuts deprived public schools of about $350 million per year, according to the Oklahoma Policy Institute, contributing to low teacher pay, large class sizes, deteriorating textbooks and four-day school weeks in much of the state. Before teachers began planning the walkout, which ended Thursday, state lawmakers had not merely neglected these pressing issues for years; they’ve exacerbated them by passing additional tax cuts for the rich and renewing a massive tax break for oil and gas companies.

Factcheck.org: Paul Ryan Misleads on Corporate Tax Revenues

House Speaker Paul Ryan misleadingly claimed that corporate tax revenues are “still rising,” even though the 2017 tax law cut tax rates. In the first six months of fiscal year 2018, corporate tax receipts have declined by 22.3 percent from a year ago. Revenues are also projected to be less over the next 10 years than they otherwise would have been because of the law.
Ryan, who recently announced he is leaving Congress in January 2019, discussed his legacy as speaker during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Ryan pointed to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was signed into law on Dec. 22, 2017, as an example of his achievements.
The bill, among other things, reduced the top corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, effective in the 2018 tax year.
Host Chuck Todd asked Ryan to respond to criticism that the Republican “tax bill spiked the deficit.” The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that the fiscal year 2018 deficit will total $804 billion — $139 billion more than in fiscal 2017.
In response, Ryan blamed rising deficits on mandatory spending. He went on to claim that corporate tax revenues are “still rising,” even though the rate “dropped 40 percent.”
Todd, April 15: I want you to respond to something Bob Corker said. He said this: “This Congress and this administration likely will go down as one of the most fiscally irresponsible administrations and Congresses that we ever had.” And he’s referring to the fact that this tax bill spiked the deficit. It’s higher than even what was projected. And as — we’re gonna get trillion dollar, you walk away with trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see —
Ryan: That was going to happen. The baby boomers’ retiring was going to do that. These deficit trillion-dollar projections have been out there for a long, long time. Why? Because of mandatory spending, which we call entitlements. Discretionary spending under the CBO baseline is going up about $300 billion over the next 10 years. Tax revenues are still rising. Income tax revenues are still rising. Corporate income tax revenues. Corporate rate got dropped 40 percent, still rising.
Ryan is right that $1 trillion deficit projections “have been out there for a long, long time.” In a June 2017 report, before the tax bill became law, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the federal deficit would top $1 trillion in fiscal year 2022 and remain above that level. It’s also true that overall tax revenues are up for the first six months of fiscal year 2018.
But corporate tax revenues are down for the first six months of the fiscal year, and they are projected to be less over the next 10 years than they otherwise would have been because of the law. In fact, revenues in general will be less than they otherwise would be — resulting in even larger projected deficits. The CBO now projects $1 trillion annual deficits starting in FY2020.
