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.

President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
