Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has become the darling of the mainstream media in recent weeks as he has led the charge to impeach President Donald Trump based on the dubious content of the biased Mueller report.
While Amash may have new supporters in the leftist resistance and the fake news because of his betrayal, he is vulnerable in the upcoming Republican primary for Michigan’s third congressional district in 2020. Seeing Amash’s weakness, Trump is considering issuing an endorsement to one of his primary challengers.
Politico reported today that Trump is discussing the option of endorsing an Amash challenger with Vice President Mike Pence, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, and North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows.
McDaniel was the former chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party before she took over the RNC after Trump was elected while Meadows co-founded the House Freedom Caucus alongside Amash before the ‘Never Trump’ Congressman bailed on his colleagues earlier this week. Trump is still weighing his options and hasn’t made up his mind at the present moment.
McDaniel commented that it is “sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.”
“The only people still fixated on the Russia collusion hoax are political foes of President Trump hoping to defeat him in 2020 by any desperate means possible,” McDaniel said.
“Voters in Amash’s district strongly support this president and would rather their congressman work to support the president’s policies that have brought jobs, increased wages and made life better for Americans,” she added.
One of the choices for President Trump to endorse would be Jim Lower, a 30-year-old Michigan state representative who claims that he stands fully with the President and his ‘America First’ agenda.
“If they were to get involved early I think it would help make sure that it was just me versus Amash in the August primary — and if that’s the case we’re definitely going to win,” Lower said.
“Obviously Trump is a huge component of our campaign, so it will probably go without saying that we’d love to have his endorsement,” he added.
Another primary challenger hoping to take Amash’s seat is Thomas Norton, a veterans’ rights advocate from Ada who is calling for the Grand Rapids Congressman to be ousted for joining the deep state coup against President Trump.
“Justin Amash has done what no one thought he would, go to Washington and become Washington,” Norton said in a press release.
“He is simply playing politics by insulting President Trump, while the rest of us are out here trying to build a future for our families,” he added.
More primary challengers against Amash are expected to emerge in the upcoming months, as it is rumored that he may make the jump to the Libertarian Party now that he has worn out his welcome in the GOP. Perhaps Amash will end up as an MSNBC analyst by the time this is all said and done.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
