Amash: Rallying to Impeach Trump is ‘More Important’ Than Passing Legislation in Congress

Rep. Justin Amash tried to explain away his lack of success at a town hall event yesterday.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) explained the legislative philosophy that he has adhered to throughout his years in Congress during a constituent town hall yesterday in Grand Rapids, and it’s arguably as stunning as his impeachment push.

Amash actually believes that he’s more successful than his peers despite never getting any legislation passed.

After receiving a question asking him to prove that he has “done things” while in Congress, Amash was unable to give any concrete examples. He instead explained that his message – the core of which is now arguing in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump – is what matters, not his actual achievements.

“I’ve spent a lot of time on civil liberties issues, particularly FISA reform and Section 215, which is the metadata collection,” Amash said, despite the fact that he is supporting the biggest FISA abuse in history by pushing the Russian collusion hoax and the illegal spying that underlined the investigation.

Amash gave himself credit for introducing bills and taking them to the House floor for debates before admitting that none of them have ever passed.

“We’ve had a lot of those contests, and yes, we have come out on the bottom,” Amash said.

He blamed a conspiracy of Republicans and Democrats working in tandem to make sure that he fails at getting anything accomplished in real terms as a Congressman.

“I think that it’s a false premise to assume that because a member of Congress passed a particular piece of legislation or is… getting their amendments on the floor that that member of Congress is accomplishing a lot,” Amash said.

He explained that his true value is getting his message out, which includes supporting Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump despite the fact that he was ultimately cleared of any Russian collusion by the Mueller report.

“I think more important than any of that is having a member of Congress who’s talking about partisanship, talking about the issues that matter, trying to inform the public about what’s going on,” Amash said.

He believes that his social media posts and other sanctimonious diatribes are what’s truly important, not so much actually getting things accomplished for his constituents.

“I can get a message out there that resonates with people here and across the country… and that’s more important than any legislative thing than I can do in Congress,” Amash explained.

Amash has been working overtime getting his message out to the public in recent weeks, and it has been almost solely focused on ginning up support to impeach Trump.

After FBI spook Robert Mueller announced his special counsel investigation was completed earlier today with no evidence produced showing Trump being guilty of any Russian collusion, Amash still supports Congress taking action to impeach the President.

Instead of working to get legislation passed, Amash will continue to use his Congressional seat as a bully pulpit to undermine his own political party’s chances at retaining the presidency heading into 2020.

Louie Gohmert Blames Mask Usage for COVID-19 Diagnosis, Plans to Take Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Virus

The mask may have caused him to catch the Chinavirus.

Published

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, which the fake news media has attributed to his lack of using a face mask.

However, Gohmert says he tested positive for the disease after complying with mask mandates more than ever. He feels the mask usage did not protect him from getting the virus and may have even contributed to it.

He told reporters that it is “ironic” that he would catch COVID-19 now “because a lot of people have made a big deal out of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more than I have in the whole last four months.”

“I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some germs, some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in,” Gohmert said.

Democrats are chiding Gohmert because he has talked against lockdown policies, mask mandates, and more overreach implemented because of COVID-19 mass hysteria.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she is “sorry for my members, who are concerned because he has been showing up at meetings without a mask and making a thing of it.”

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) added that he is “concerned about the irresponsible behavior of many of the Republicans who have chosen to consistently flout well-established public health guidance perhaps out of fealty to their boss, Donald Trump, who is the head of the anti-mask movement in America.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the mass hysteria has caused Americans to turn on their heritage of freedom and liberty to support forcible unconstitutional mandates:

A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico reveals that a solid majority of Americans support a mask mandate that would implement fines of jail time for those that refuse to wear masks in public places.

The asks registered voters if they’d support a mandated implemented by their state government. 72% of of responding registered voters stated that they’d “strongly” or “somewhat” support a state-implemented mask mandate that is punishable by jail time or fines.

The poll asked the following question.

Based on what you know about the COVID-19 pandemic (coronavirus), would you support or oppose your state instituting a face mask mandate in public spaces, where not wearing a mask could be punishable by fine or jail time?

Curiously, Baby Boomers, one of America’s most conservative voting demographics, support a mask mandate most strenuously. 78% of Boomers support the mask mandate. Millennials (68%) and Generation Z (63%) support it the least, although wide majorities still do.

Democrats support the mask mandate in almost unanimous fashion, with 86% of them supporting it. A solid majority of Republicans support mandatory masks as well, with a majority of 58%.

There simply is widespread public support for wearing a mask and taking limited measures to deter the spread of coronavirus in the United States. Republicans and conservatives risk alienating such popular sentiment at their own electoral peril.

Gohmert plans to take hydroxychloroquine in order to treat COVID-19 and fend off potential symptoms.

“My doctor and I are all in, and I got a text just before I came on from a dear friend, [a] doctor, who just found out he had it, and he said he started a HCQ [hydroxychloroquine] regimen, too,” Gohmert said while appearing on Fox News.

“I got a tiny little taste of what you and the president get every day,” Gohmert said to host Sean Hannity, “The left went nuts.”

Gohmert hopes to be among the 99.7 percent of coronavirus sufferers who recover from the disease.
