Repost of Ryan/McCarty transcript. A must read imho.

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/5/18/1663644/-Ryan-and-McCarthy-...

This transcript of Ryan's June 2016 full acknowledgement of Putin's interference and propaganda campaign in Ukraine, Europe, and the US 2016 election, including the DNC hack to gain the Dems opposition research on Trump during the campaign, needs to be read by everyone, shared if possible, then repeated out loud EVERY TIME Ryan makes a play to impoverish the poor and underserved in order to the enrich the top sliver of wealthy Americans.

His duplicity is not so much from greed, as it is from a uniquely American form of Dispensational Christianity who's religious foundation teaches that the wealthy are closer to Jesus and his God. So, for Ryan, it is not about people, or fairness, or honesty, or even laws. All those pale in comparison to God's will. For Ryan, it is about being a captain in a fanatical religious army borne from the ashes of the Civil War that spread throughout America as the Religious Right. For Ryan, God often uses evil, and evil people such as Trump, as his pawns and tools towards a greater end.

So, Ryan is not likely adequately equipped to see his error of encouraging the Republican congress and the American people to believe the complete opposite of the truth he held about Putin. Every lie can lead to good in his worldview if God favors the lie, if not the liar himself.

Yep, everyone should read it. I saw it on Fark earlier today, and frankly was not amused.

Ryan: That never happened.
WaPo: Want to hear the tape?
Ryan: We were joking.

Ya know, the way things are going, the line of succession may stop at Orrin Hatch. Cripes.

Actually Ryan is suffering from the nihilistic ideology of Objectivism, born out of the fiction of Ayn Rand.  Speaking from personal experience it makes sense to most 16 year old intellectual wannabes, but usually fades after a couple of years.  In Ryan's case he's still stuck in high school.

^^^^^JMac is on track.

That's the salt.

Dominionism is the pepper.

Crazy that Hatch is the best choice, Boanerges, but we might.

That, too, JMac and alsoknownas.  I'll add Ryan's immaturity and Randism to his religious upbringing for a more complete and complex understanding.
