Although Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is rapidly losing support from constituents in his own district, he has gained new allies in the elite media class as a result of joining the Democrats to support President Donald Trump’s impeachment. Bill Kristol, the globalist neocon architect of the Iraq War, is now pumping money into Amash’s re-election efforts as a result.
A nation organization with ties to prominent Democrat funders, the Republicans for the Rule of Law, will be spending $50,000 on an ad buy urging Republicans to support Amash as he tries to railroad the President.
Certain ads will air during the “Fox & Friends” program on Fox News until Friday. The nonprofit will also put print ads in a Grand Rapids newspaper as well as producing digital ads.
“Our leaders all take an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution. It’s a solemn agreement between the American people and those they choose to serve in government,” Republicans for the Rule of Law said in a statement.
“Their party affiliation, personal ambition and desire for reelection all come second to that solemn oath. Rep. Amash is upholding his oath, putting the good of the country above smaller matters. Every politician should follow his example,” they added.
The television ads can be seen here:
Kristol, who ran the now-defunct Weekly Standard, has been praising Amash since he publicly declared his support for Trump’s impeachment despite the fact that Trump was cleared of any Russian collusion by the Mueller report.
I say this as someone at odds with Amash on lots of issues important to me (and I think to him): All honor to Justin Amash, who has done so much today to set an example of constitutional responsibility and mature, civic discourse.

After being run from the GOP following failed sabotage efforts against Trump in 2016, Kristol has gone back to his leftist roots and started taking funds from at least one far-left oligarch. Progressive billionaire Pierre Omidyar’s non-profit Democracy Fund has given at least $600,000 to Kristol’s front group, Defending Democracy Together.
Omidyar has donated millions to organizations in the George Soros network such as the Open Society Foundations and the Tides Foundation. Republicans for the Rule of Law is listed as a “a 501(c)(4) nonprofit and a project of Defending Democracy Together” on their own website.
Amash’s opponents have speculated that he is being propped up by Democrats for years, and now they have solid evidence to back up that theory. Democratic dollars will be used to help Amash gain re-election in 2020 to continue his campaign against President Trump.
EXPOSED: Sen. Richard Burr’s Crony Connections to Casino Magnate Widely Accused of Corruption
Burr’s an anti-Trump swamp politician renowned for his cronyism.
Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) has been working against the will of his own state, lobbying for the interests of a foreign Indian tribe and a casino magnate with a history of indictments, to essentially override the will of the people.
The Kings Mountain casino has been a hot button issue for years in North and South Carolina, with the Catawba tribe seeking to build the facility. The Catawba is located in South Carolina where their laws prevent Indian casinos that are permitted in other states. The tribe is attempting to cross state boundaries to get their casino built in North Carolina, where the gaming laws are more relaxed. This has angered the surrounding community.
“The casino industry thrives off of things against Christian values,” said pastor Alton Beal, who organizes the group, “Say NO to a Casino in Cleveland County.”
Beal’s group gathered 1,200 signatures last year from community leaders for a letter released in a local paper opposing the casino.
Sen. Burr has partnered with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to take the power away from the people of North Carolina. They proposed federal legislation last year that would allow the Catawba tribe to build the controversial casino while basically circumventing objections from the public. This has enraged other Indian tribes as well, who argue that Catawba is receiving special privileges due to working the system.
“We encourage the Catawba Indian Nation to go through the same proper process in their home state of South Carolina that we have worked through for decades as partners with our state of North Carolina,” said Richard Sneed, principal chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI).
“As it stands, this bill would create a harmful precedent — the first time Congress has expressly authorized an Indian tribe to acquire land into trust simply for owning and operating an off-reservation casino,” Sneed added.
The Catawba tribe has made in-roads with RINO swamp senators such as Burr and Graham due in part to their close association with Wallace Cheves, a gaming kingpin who has been indicted for fraud, illegal gambling, and money laundering. The state of Alabama successfully sued Cheves for running illegal casinos, and he has been accused by South Carolina officials of violating gaming laws in that state. Cheves has paid at least $16,000 to Burr through his various political entities. Despite Burr’s best efforts, the legislation never made it out of committee on the Senate floor for a full vote.
Burr’s legislation was listed in a federal complaint filed last week in U.S. District Court against the Interior Department by the EBCI and several other plaintiffs. The complaint details Cheves’ maneuvering to reinterpret the law for his own ends, wheeling and dealing at every level to boost his investments. After buying off Burr, Cheves focused on influencing bureaucrats in the Interior Department to change their enforcement of the rules, which was ultimately successful.
“On March 12, 2020, Defendant [Assistant Secretary of the Interior Tara] Sweeney issued a decision directing the transfer of the Kings Mountain site into trust for the Catawba and determining that the Catawba could lawfully game at the Kings Mountain site under IGRA,” the complaint reads.
The EBCI hopes to have the federal decision overturned by the courts, which would prevent the new casino from being built in a community that does not want to see it opened. Even though his legislation failed, Burr penned a derisive op/ed slamming Cheves’ legal opponents for “bullying” other Indian tribes for wanting them to follow the law as it has been understood for decades.
“Whether it’s the Lumbees or one mother’s home, it seems that nothing is too big or too small for the Cherokee to oppose if it affects their bottom line. I hope North Carolina rejects such bullying tactics from any tribe and considers each case, including the Catawbas’ and the Lumbees’, on its merits. The stakes are too high,” Burr wrote.
Burr gained infamy earlier this year regarding allegations of insider trading, but that is far from his only indiscretion. This lawmaker truly embodies everything that is wrong about Washington D.C.
