The same congressman who voted three times not to repeal ObamaCare, is now waving the Constitution around like deceased Sen. Robert Byrd to justify his hair-brained vote to protect sexual predators.
“Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act,” or Senate Bill 534, was fiercely opposed on so-called “constitutional” grounds by Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash.
As a general rule, if something requires a 772-word explanation, it probably isn’t a good idea to begin with. But, that’s the number of words the self-described “maverick” congressman deemed necessary to explain his hair-splitting and morally objectionable vote on Facebook.
I voted no on the motion to suspend the rules and pass #S534, which federalizes criminal law with respect to certain…
“It explicitly authorizes Congress to criminalize only a few activities, which relate to matters that are clearly federal in nature (counterfeiting, crimes on the high seas, treason). All other criminal activities are punishable at the state level,” Amash stated.
Child abuse is a strange place for the congressman to dig in his heels, especially concerning the Constitution. And Amash’s views are frequently confusing in that way, since the would-be “maverick” parrots every Democratic fundraising meme imaginable and frequently votes with Democrats, e.g. voting to fund Planned Parenthood and voting for taxpayer-funded sex change surgery. Are those not obvious constitutional red lines for Amash?
Let’s not forget Russia. Most recently, Amash began repeating the totally disproven Russian hacking claims, a narrative so discredited that even Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer says it’s stupid.
Adding to his growing list of “bipartisan” bona fides, Amash cosponsored a discharge petition to launch another “independent” investigation into Russian little green men.
He might as well have said, “I can see Russia from my house.”
Although Amash consistently votes against PATRIOT Act re-authorization and against NSA abuse, he votes to fund the Transportation Security Administration (Gropes’R’Us) — hardly an example of constitutional fidelity.
He also rejects the right of the federal government to enforce immigration laws, even though Art. 1 of the U.S. Constitution clearly delegates power over naturalization to Congress.
Let’s assume for the sake of argument that Amash is correct in his basic assessment of the bill’s constitutionality. Why this issue, and why now?
While Michigan flip-flopper is quibbling over federalizing crimes of sexual deviance, most are aware that the U.S. government has been federalizing crimes for decades. Unless Amash was high during George H.W. Bush’s “war on drugs,” he would have to agree it’s not a new issue. The toothpaste is already out of the tube.
Even Amash’s colleague representing Muslim-dominated Dearborne voted in favor of the bill. “We all have a responsibility to protect our young people from despicable, predatory behavior, and this important legislation represents a first step … ,” Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell said in a statement. Muslim men are among the largest group of sex offenders in any country.
It is laudable that Amash finally cares about the Constitution, but next time, he should probably avoid reading WallBuilders or watching old Ron Paul speeches right before a vote on sex predators.

Black Supremacist Tariq “King Flex” Nasheed has History of Authoring Sexist Books
A black supremacist and popular Twitter figure has a long and sordid history of writing books for the purpose of teaching men how to manipulate women into sex.
“The Art of Mackin’ is also the first book that tells men what to say, word for word, in order to get sex from women, guaranteed,” says the description of Nasheed’s book on Amazon, published in 2000. “By using my tried and proven methods of mackin’, men are guaranteed to increase their player ratio by at least fifty percent (50%).”
Confessedly, I have not read the books, and though I am sure they are scholarly and scientifically backed, I am not sure how the “player ratio” is measured.
“The Art of Mackin’ was the first how-to book that taught men how to actually become a true ladie’s [sic] man , and how to use certain techniques (not deceit) in order to get what they wanted from women,” the description continues. “Whether it is sex, money or companionship, this book teaches men what to say, verbatim, in order to reach their intended goal.”
Nasheed released a sequel to “The Art of Mackin'” in 2005 called “The Mack Within: The Holy Book of Game,” which teaches men “how to use ‘pimp game’ as a form of manipulation (not deceit) in order to get what they want from women,” and has a colorful review from The New York Times.
“Nasheed breaks [the different types of women] down: there’s the Top-Notch Sista (‘when dealing with a top-notch sista, brothers have to really come correct’); the Middle Class Girl; The Hoodrat; and the Chickenhead (a classification Nasheed further splits up into the Low Budget and the Straight-Up Hoochie Chickenhead; to spot the latter, be on the lookout for gold teeth and lips that are ‘purple from smoking weed’).
The book has fantastic reviews, garnering a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.
“Good book, should be in with the classics,” wrote reviewer Mark Carroll. “A must read and study for young men!! PLEASE TELL YOUR YOUNGER MEN.”
Unfortunately, it appears that Nasheed has put his illustrious literary career on hold, and has instead decided to make a career of calling everyone on Twitter a “white supremacist.”
Take the NRA for example:
“So Mariia Butina, the Russian citizen residing in D.C., was arrested yesterday, July 15, 2018, on charges of conspiracy to act as an agent of the Russian Federation within the United States,” he said. “She has ties to the white supremacist organization the NRA.

Or people who use the “okay” hand gesture:
“Here are another group of white supremacists called the Proud Boys throwing up the white nationalist gang sign” he said.

Or all Trump supporters:
“Trump is using his criticism of LaVar Ball as a dog whistle to trigger his white supremacist base,” Nahseed said. “Trump has to show that he can put “uppity negroes” in their place.”

Big League Politics reached out to Nasheed to ask if he considers himself to be a sexist, or if his views on coercing women into sex have changed.
“Define what sexist is,” Nasheed said.
