BYE: Justin Amash Resigns from Freedom Caucus

Amash fell out with the conservative congressional group after calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

Michigan libertarian Congressman Justin Amash resigned from the House Freedom Caucus on Monday night. 

Amash had been earlier censured by the caucus for his left-wing policy stances in favor of impeaching President Trump. He joined with Democrats in drawing reaching conclusions from an empty Mueller Report, claiming that Bill Barr was obfuscating Presidential crimes to personally protect Trump.

The Michigan congressman told Politico that he “no longer wished to be a distraction to the group.” He hadn’t shown up to caucus meetings in over a year and seems lately to have been associating more frequently with progressive Democrats. He became a darling of establishment favorites like Mitt Romney for his Russia-conspiracy motivated attacks on the President.

Traditionally libertarians of Amash’s ilk have supported a foreign policy of peace, seeking to avoid the jingoistic and sensational rhetoric that fuels the grandiose Russia conspiracy of the left. But Amash seems to have completely disregarded that, taking the premise of a grand Russian interference plot at face value, directly from elite progressives in mainstream media and Washington.

Amash claims pure motives in becoming the only congressional Republican to support impeaching President Trump. But reporting from Big League Politics indicates the Michigan member of Congress would have a lot to personally gain by removing the President. Amash owns a family business that prolifically imports materials and products from China.

If Donald Trump’s game-changing America First trade reforms were to be pushed away by a traditional establishment Republican figure, Amash could potentially be lined up to profit in the millions from generous status-quo free-trade policies designed to undermine the American worker and import cheap goods for big corporations.

Congress’s leading conservative caucus may be better off without the NeverTrump grandstander and fair-weather Democrat in Republican’s clothing.

115 House Republicans Sign Onto Effort to Remove Neocon Liz Cheney as GOP Chair

Cheney’s unfit to lead.

Published

on

A majority of House Republicans have signed onto a letter expressing no confidence in GOP conference chair Liz Cheney, following the neoconservative Wyoming member of Congress’ vote to impeach President Donald Trump.

115 Republicans have signed onto a ‘no confidence’ letter, a strong majority of the House’s GOP caucus of 211. Ten Republicans moved to betray President Trump on the sham impeachment, which is only slated to proceed in the Senate now that Trump has left office. The Senate lacks the jurisdiction to convict a private citizen, although Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer hopes to bar the 45th President from running for federal office again.

Cheney has since been officially censured by the Carbon County, Wyoming Republican Party, with the latter expressing their strong disapproval in Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, now lacks the support to act in a leading capacity of the Republican Caucus. She’s already attracted a primary challenger, Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has declined to move against Cheney, opting to keep her in a position of leadership even after betraying the President and her party. Establishment neocons such as Cheney are hoping to move the Republican Party back to a globalist vision of ‘invade the world, invite the world,’ attempting to sweep President Donald Trump’s governing vision of “America First” under the rug.

Cheney Republicanism no longer represents a way forward in the Republican Party.
