    Paul Ryan’s Primary Challenger Is Basically A Mini Donald Trump
    Paul Nehlen thinks the U.S. should consider deporting all Muslims.

    • Marina Fang Associate Politics Editor, The Huffington Post

    • A tea party challenger attempting to unseat House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) got an unexpected boost from GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump this week, when the real estate mogul tweeted favorably about him and then announced that he was “not quite” ready to endorse Ryan.

      It turns out the challenger, Paul Nehlen, has a lot in common with Trump. Nehlen has been running a campaign focused on immigration and trade, accusing Ryan of sending American jobs overseas. And as an interview with a Chicago radio station on Monday revealed, Nehlen also seems to share some of Trump’s Islamophobia, proposing that the U.S. should consider deporting all Muslims.

      “I’m suggesting we have a discussion about it. That’s for sure,” he said.

      Nehlen said that like Trump, he supports a surveillance program for Muslims in the U.S.

      “The question is, why do we have Muslims in the country?” Nehlen asked. “Here’s what we should be doing: We should be monitoring every mosque. We should be monitoring social media.”

      Later in the interview, Nehlen clarified that he meant only deporting “Sharia-compliant” Muslims, saying that he backs a religious test for Muslims to determine whether they “believe in Sharia,” an idea recently proposed by Trump supporter and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

      “Islam is not a religion. It’s a political system. It has a different set of rules,” Nehlen said.

      Ryan, who has a significant fundraising advantage over Nehlen and high favorability ratings in the district that he has served for almost two decades, is expected to win next Tuesday’s primary.

      In an interview with a Wisconsin radio station on Thursday, he dismissed Nehlen’s campaign, claiming that he “has been making stuff up.”

      “He’s running this sort of make-it-up-as-you-go campaign,” Ryan said.

      The House speaker has repeatedly affirmed that he opposes a religious test for Muslims entering the country, and despite endorsing Trump, frequently condemns the real estate mogul’s rhetoric.

      On Thursday, he called Trump’s attacks against Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of a slain Muslim American war hero, “beyond the pale,” but said that he continues to support Trump as his party’s standard-bearer.

      But Nehlen argued that Ryan has not done enough to support Trump, suggesting to CNN on Tuesday that Ryan “should be reporting in-kind contributions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”

      “When did the speaker attack Hillary Clinton the way he’s attacking Donald Trump right now? He is the top elected Republican in the country right now,” Nehlen said. “Shouldn’t he be focused on supporting Mr. Trump and figuring out how he can partner with him?”

      Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

    I may be wrong, but I believe most of the Muslims in the US are African-American...and I'm pretty sure a lot of them have a longer ancestral connection to this country than this guy, so should the black people just flip a coin as to which African country they go to since they probably have no clue which one their slave ancestors came from?

    Does his plan also include the 6000 currently serving in the US military...unlike himself and his two adult sons who did never did?

    Paul Ryan Will Be Fine in Wisconsin. Trump? Not So Much.
    By praising Paul Ryan’s primary opponent and refusing to endorse the speaker of the House, Trump may have just cost himself any hope of winning Wisconsin in November.

    Despite what you may have heard, Paul Ryan is not Eric Cantor.

    You can be forgiven for the confusion. Ever since a political unknown took out the powerful House majority leader in a shocking primary upset two years ago, top congressional Republicans have been a little jittery.

    If such a shocking (and mortifying, and avoidable) defeat could happen to Cantor—a well-funded, well-established Republican leader with a seemingly bright future—it could happen to anyone.

    That’s part of the reason some of Donald Trump’s top supporters have flocked to the southeast corner of Wisconsin, hoping to re-bottle the Dave Brat magic by using the anti-Cantor, anti-globalization, Trump-friendly rhetoric that proved lethal to past establishment Republicans.

    But odds are Paul Ryan is going to be fine.

    Trump’s decision to abandon the speaker of the House in his own primary won’t just hurt their relationship (such as it was), it could also jeopardize Trump’s already long-shot efforts to unify Badger State Republicans and win Wisconsin.

    The laws of physics do not preclude challenger Paul Nehlen from defeating Ryan. Technically, it’s possible.


    But it’s going to be really, really hard. That’s because Republican voters in Ryan’s district like him—a lot. Unlike Cantor, who hardly ever left D.C. to go back to his central Virginia district, Ryan regularly bounces back and forth between Washington and Janesville. He marches in parades, spends campaign money on TV ads, and meets with constituents.


    And it’s paying off. Charles Franklin, who heads the highly respected Marquette University Law School poll, said Ryan’s approval rating among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in his district is about 80 percent. More important, Franklin added, those numbers aren’t moving. The Republicans who like Ryan aren’t changing their minds. Efforts to damage Ryan’s reputation there simply aren’t working.

    “The groundwork has not been set for an insurgence,” Franklin said.

    That’s not for lack of effort. Nehlen’s advocates include some of the same right-wing media figures who helped propel Brat to his win over Cantor. Influential conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham—whose speech at the Republican National Convention was one of its most underrated—is a dogged critic of Ryan, especially on trade. Ann Coulter, who praised Brat during his primary bid, plans to campaign with Nehlen on Aug. 6. Sarah Palin also promised to boost Nehlen, though there’s little evidence she’s done much to help him. And Michelle Malkin and former Rep. Tom Tancredo, two of the noisiest foes of comprehensive immigration reform, also endorsed Nehlen.

    On Tuesday, Trump himself said he doesn’t support Ryan’s primary re-election bid. He also tweeted on Monday that Nehlen’s “kind words” were “very much appreciated.”

    The Trump fanfic site known as Breitbart.com has also given Nehlen affectionate, adoring coverage throughout his bid, sometimes essentially posting transcripts from his cable news interviews. It has also hosted Nehlen on its morning SiriusXM radio show, where he recently said Ryan was “grown in a petri dish in D.C.”

    But if there’s a candidate imported to southeast Wisconsin from the Washington metropolitan area, it’s Nehlen. He’s picked up scant support in the district, and his campaign treasurer is notorious scam-PAC artist Dan Backer—an Alexandria, Virginia, campaign finance lawyer who helps Tea Party groups raise small-dollar donations by sending out email blasts promising that just $5 will persuade, for example, Trey Gowdy to run for president.

    Another problem? Nehlen’s vitriolic anti-Ryan rhetoric doesn’t play well in conservative southeast Wisconsin. When Brat campaigned against Cantor, he shied away from personal attacks and didn’t impugn his opponent’s character. Nehlen, meanwhile, calls Ryan a “soulless globalist” and a “mercenary champion.”

    Wisconsin conservatives don’t talk that way. The state’s most powerful Republicans—RNC chairman Reince Priebus, Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Reps. Sean Duffy and Jim Sensenbrenner, and, of course, Ryan himself—are all even-toned, mild-mannered, and affable. When the Democrats trying to recall Walker in 2012 used angry, over-the-top, incendiary rhetoric, the placid governor stayed unrelentingly pleasant. And he won.

    Charlie Sykes, the most influential conservative talk radio host in the state, said Nehlen’s tone is a liability.

    “It is an ugly, bitter tone that really clashes with the more upbeat, optimistic tone that people are used to hearing from people like Paul Ryan,” Sykes said. “And frankly, it underlines the fact that he’s not from around here and doesn’t appear to be familiar with any of the fights that we’ve had.”

    “It’s very much got the feel of a scam PAC directed from Alexandria, Virginia, rather than anything genuinely grassroots,” Sykes added.

    Matt Batzel, the Wisconsin-based national executive director for the conservative activist-training group American Majority, concurred.

    “Nehlen’s getting momentum,” he said, “but it’s from the wrong people.”

    Wisconsin has a well-developed, influential conservative media infrastructure, and it’s played a central role in Republicans’ efforts to turn the state purple. And none of the state’s prominent conservative media figures have come to bat for Nehlen.

    And those tensions could affect the presidential election. Trump’s team has begun concerted efforts to reach out to Trump-skeptical conservatives in Wisconsin, especially in the corner of the state that Ryan represents. Sykes said vice presidential nominee Mike Pence sat down with him in person on July 27 to discuss how Trump’s team could get anti-Trump Republicans to work with him—or at least, against Hillary Clinton—in November. Trump can’t win Wisconsin without maximizing turnout in the state’s Republican-rich, Trump-skeptical southeast corner. And Ryan is the most popular Wisconsin Republican in that part of a state. By flirting with Nehlen, Trump took Pence’s bridge-building efforts and blow-torched them.

    And Ryan isn’t the only top Republican left reeling over Trump’s move. Priebus worked overtime to unify Wisconsin’s top Republicans behind Trump. Walker, Duffy, and Ryan have all judiciously avoided criticism of the mogul, despite his obvious shortcomings. Sykes chalks that up to Priebus’s lobbying efforts. Wisconsin was one fairly happy Republican family—that is, until Trump took a shine to Nehlen.

    “I don’t think it’s possible to overstate how close Ryan and Reince Priebus are, and how angry and upset Priebus was about this,” Sykes said. “This was a real personal and political humiliation for Reince.”

    Barring something extraordinary, Nehlen will lose next Tuesday. And he’ll take Republican unity there down with him.

    His sons are serving. They're ridding the world of exotic animals. Without them, many people would have died at the paws of these murderous beasts. Thank God for Drumpf and his kids.

    Where is he quoted as wanting to "deport all muslims" ? The article quotes him as saying we should monitor them which we already do.

    Paul Ryan loves Ludwig von Mises and Milton Friedman...Paul Ryan and his corporate cronies...and their failed and invalid economic theories have decimated families across all of Wisconsin for a long time. I strongly support Paul Nehlen in his quest to defeat Paul Ryan. It's about time someone told those economic conservatives to shove it up their ass...god bless Paul Nehlan and his opposition to TPP and Paul Ryan...Bernie Sanders could not have said it better.

    Donald Trump and Paul Nehlan are right...fuck Paul Ryan, Ludwig von Mises and Scott Walker too. The Cowardly Ryan is too scared to even debate.
