Update #2: Reader Kay reports on her attempts to reach Jim Jordan:
It took me 5 tries calling to finally get in touch with Chairman Jordan’s office. I was hung up on 3 times, got a person who did not speak English well on my 4th try…she hung up too, and on my 5th try, I got a young man in Mr. Jordan’s office who seemed pleasant. The first words out of my mouth is that I had a citizen concern for Mr. Jordan as Freedom Caucus Chair and to please not hang up on me, as I had been shut out 4 times already. The young man at least acted like he was listening and took down information and my phone number. I reiterated to him that people in my area, Cincinnati, Ohio, did NOT want Paul Ryan as Speaker.
Update: Andy Harris sells out to RINOs, here. If you see more news on Freedom Caucus members today, let me know.
NumbersUSA has launched a call-in campaign to try to stop this moving train.
Roy Beck on Rep. Paul Ryan, click here.
Here is what Roy Beck said in an e-mail to concerned Americans:
I’m convinced that the only thing that will keep the most powerful and committed Republican House amnesty leader out of the chair of the Speaker of the House is an unrelenting barrage of phone calls to Republican Representatives from our NumbersUSA network today (yesterday) and Friday.
My description of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not based just on what I know but on what PBS proved last night with its premier airing of a two-hour documentary, IMMIGRATION BATTLE. It provided detail after detail of Ryan’s back-room efforts to get a version of the Senate Gang of 8 amnesty through the House over the last two years.
Beck wants you to call all of your Republican members, but here is the list of Members of the Freedom Caucus so I’m urging you to focus on them as a first priority (from wikipedia). By the way, we hear that the Koch brothers provide some funding for the Freedom Caucus—not a good sign since the funders of RINO Presidential candidates have been visibly absent from the immigration issue leading most to conclude that they too are pro-open borders in order to supply cheap labor for industry.
