Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) defeated an incumbent Republican in Michigan’s 8th Congressional district last year because of an unprecedented influx of outside money that she received due to her deep state connections, but her ties to the intelligence community may doom her chances for re-election.
Slotkin is taking the unpopular stance in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, and she announced her position publicly during a contentious town hall at Oakland University in Rochester, MI on Monday morning.
“I want people to think about where we will be if it becomes normal to ask foreign governments to intervene in our political process,” Slotkin said in an attempt to rationalize her decision.
“What if that becomes normal? What if next time we have a Democratic president asking the Chinese government for a cyberattack, for something new, for some intrusion? For me, this is something I cannot abide, that I cannot accept,” she added.

In a Detroit Free Press op/ed published on Monday, Slotkin explained her belief that the President “illegally solicited the help of foreigners to influence the American political process.” She said she came to her decision despite the fact that it is politically unpopular, perhaps as a favor to the deep state that astroturfed her political star with dirty money.
“There are some decisions in life that have to be made based on what you know in your bones is right. And this is one of those times,” Slotkin wrote.
Her constituents are turning against her rapidly due to her participation in the railroading that has taken place against the President:
Trump backers in Michigan note that Slotkin’s district is rabidly pro-Trump, and she is representing interests in Washington D.C. rather than her voters.
“Trump supporters are fed up with the impeachment process. The do nothing Democrats need to be reminded by Michigan voters that President Trump is doing a great job,” said Meshawn Maddock, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans. “Trump won this District by over 7 percentage points in 2016. Now, Slotkin appears to listen to Nancy Pelosi more than voters in the 8th District.”
“Elissa Slotkin needs to consider the reality that she won an election when President Trump was not even on the ballot,” Maddock added. “In 2020, that won’t happen. Trump will be on the ballot and the 8th District is a conservative area. 8th District voters will deliver the message to Slotkin and to Washington, D.C. about what they think. Slotkin’s lock step with radical and do nothing Democrats to support the ‘impeachment’ hoax is a poor decision.”
Recent polls have indicated that impeachment has been a boon for President Trump’s re-election chances, and he is raising massive amounts of funds off of the witch hunt conducted by Democrats. The political establishment’s illicit scheme to overturn the 2016 presidential election is backfiring tremendously.
Slotkin, who was seemingly strategically planted in Michigan’s 8th district after a working as a CIA officer and Department of Defense official, may prove to be a bad investment for the special interests that put her into office. Her career may be finished next year because of her inability to serve her constituents.
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
