Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan had excerpts from his next speech allegedly leaked to Punchbowl News. He is set to speak at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California Thursday. Apparently according to the excerpts, he plans to lead the GOP away from “populist appeal of one personality” or else “then we’re not going anywhere.”
“Once again, we conservatives find ourselves at a crossroads. And here’s one reality we have to face: If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or on second-rate imitations, then we’re not going anywhere. Voters looking for Republican leaders want to see independence and mettle,” the excerpts read. The “one personality” is interpreted to mean former President Trump.
Allegedly, Ryan’s speech does give Trump some credit for ” such incredibly powerful and inclusive economic growth.” “It was the populism of President Trump in action, tethered to conservative principles,” the speech reads.
According to Ryan, there’s a way to win more people over to the conservative side, and it’s not getting into culture wars. “As the left gets more ‘woke,’ the rest of America is getting weary. It’s exhausting. And we conservatives have to be careful not to get caught up in every little cultural battle,” his speech reads. “Sometimes these skirmishes are just creations of outrage peddlers, detached from reality and not worth anybody’s time. They draw attention away from the far more important case we must make to the American people.”
Yet, some are taking Ryan’s advice with a grain of salt. Author Todd Starnes took to Twitter to scoff Ryan.
But Ryan also plans to criticize the current president, warning that Biden is “pursuing an agenda more leftist than any president in my lifetime.”
“In 2020, the country wanted a nice guy who would move to the center and depolarize our politics. Instead, we got a nice guy pursuing an agenda more leftist than any president in my lifetime. These policies might have the full approval of his progressive supporters, but they break faith with the middle-of-the-road folks who made the difference for him on Election Day,” the excerpts read.
Some fellow anti-Trump conservatives seemed to welcome Ryan with open arms. The View’s former host Ana Navarro-Cardenas tweeted “Welcome to the Club, Paul.”
On the other hand, others questioned how much pull Ryan has anyways, since its been years since he’s worked for the government. Newsmax White House Correspondent Emerald Robinson seems to think that he won’t sway anyone.

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’
Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say
Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.
Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.
Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.
Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.
To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”
An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”
Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
