Yesterday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) took the stage at a town hall in Grand Rapids, MI. He criticized President Trump frequently during the event before a selected audience while promoting his own constitutional voting record.
There was a tense confrontation between Amash and a pro-Trump woman who was hectored by the hostile audience and barely able to raise her point between the jeers:
One of the most telling snippets from the town hall was Amash’s assertion that he has plenty of backup in Congress on the Republican side of the aisle for his impeachment push.
Amash said to the audience that they wouldn’t believe how many of his Republican colleagues support impeachment based on the contents of the Mueller report, which cleared President Trump of any Russian collusion.
He then patted himself on the back for his bravery in supporting Trump’s impeachment.
“If you have a society where all we care about is that the other side is bad and therefore we don’t have to do what’s right, that society will break down and you will have no liberty,” Amash said.
Then Amash implied that impeachment was the right choice “for those of you who care about liberty [and] the Constitution.” He advocated for Republicans to reach out and “care” about what the Democrats are doing.

Amash framed his fight as a matter of ethics. By ignoring the gross overreaches of the Mueller investigation and instead focusing on the President’s alleged obstruction of this unprecedented deep state overreach, he claims he is fulfilling his oath of office.
“I think it’s really important that we do our job as a Congress, that we not allow misconduct to go undeterred, that we not just say someone can violate the public trust and that there are no consequences to it,” Amash said.
He urged everyone to read the Mueller report, a biased political document written by a career federal bureaucrat who lied about WMDs in Iraq as FBI director, and talked about the document as if it was sacrosanct.
“I’m confident if you read volume two, you will be appalled at much of the conduct, and I was appalled by it,” Amash said.
“I think we cannot let conduct like that go unchecked. Congress has a duty to keep the President in check, and it is a difficult process,” he added.
Amash noted that the impeachment process is not easy, but would continue to lead on the issue regardless. His position on impeachment is to the left of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
“We owe it to the American people to represent them, to ensure that the people we have in office are doing the right thing, are of good character, aren’t violating the public trust,” Amash said.

“I will always stand up for liberty and stand up for our Constitution,” Amash said in his conclusion.
His lip service was particularly enjoyed by the far left, who are enjoying the division that Amash is causing among his Republican ranks. Several resistance members showed up with signs outside of the town hall to support Amash’s stand against his party and Trump’s MAGA agenda.

Anti-Trump RINO Nancy Mace Supports Retooled ‘Equality Act’ in Attempt to Dupe Conservatives
Mace is a disgrace.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) is supporting a watered down version of the Democrats’ “Equality Act” in an attempt to dupe Republicans into supporting the anti-conservative social justice legislation.
Former Delaware senate candidate Lauren Witzke is drawing attention to Mace’s latest sell-out as she attempts to drive the GOP away from Trumpism:
The Equality Act must be destroyed, not repackaged into a decorated word salad so Republicans can digest it @NancyMace.
It’s not too late, END this NOW.

“RINO low IQ idiot, Congresswoman Nancy Mace is trying to repackage the Equality Act so the Republicans can pass it without getting backlash,” Witzke explained in a post on Telegram. “Same policy, different wording. Leave it up to republicans to raise the worst bill in U.S. history from the dead instead of lighting [its] corpse on fire.”
“I strongly support LGBTQ rights and equality,” Mace told me. “No one should be discriminated against.”
Mace made it clear that helping trannies become mainstreamed in society as they push to convince little children to change their birth gender is a priority of hers.
“It isn’t a black-and-white issue,” she said, “I do believe that religious liberty, the First Amendment, gay rights, and transgender equality can all coexist. I’m also a constitutionalist, and we have to ensure anti-discrimination laws don’t violate First Amendment rights or religious freedom.”
“I have friends and family that identify as LGBTQ,” Mace added. “Understanding how they feel and how they’ve been treated is important. Having been around gay, lesbian, and transgender people has informed my opinion over my lifetime.”
Mace wants to give LGBT members additional special privileges so she can receive plaudits from the mainstream media, even if it may be completely opposed to the long-standing principles of the GOP.
“There can be that balance,” Mace insists. “The Fairness for All Act … do[es] just that,” she offered. “We put in protections for religious liberty.”

Big League Politics has reported on how Mace threw Trump under the bus as she denied the existence of voter fraud in last year’s election:
Freshman Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC), who ran as a pro-Trump Republican to obtain Congressional office, has emerged as the most vicious Never Trumper in the chamber.
Mace is leading a purge against her colleagues who opposed the certification of dubious electoral college results last week. Mace even wants the deep state to investigate one of her colleagues in what is an egregious violation of her colleague’s 1st Amendment rights.
Mace first attacked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a freshman pro-Trump lawmaker who has received frequent attacks from the fake news media. Mace repeated debunked talking points that Greene is a member of the QAnon movement, whose adherents were involved in last week’s Capitol siege.
“I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence,” Mace is reported as saying on a text thread featuring freshmen GOP lawmakers.
After Greene mentioned Black Lives Matter terrorism and told Mace “don’t believe the fake news,” Mace responded back with a rude, catty and unprofessional quip: “Literal QAnon lady trying to deny she’s a QAnon lady.”
… Mace is not content on merely insulting pro-Trump reps. She actually wants the deep state to investigate her pro-Trump colleagues and potentially charge them for supporting the president’s rally last week.
Mace is making even Dan ‘McCain 2.0‘ Crenshaw look good by comparison. The Trump-led GOP should consider putting her scalp on the wall so-to-speak during next year’s primary elections.
