Fiscally conservative groups in Washington D.C. are refusing to support Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) after he bailed on the Republican Party and helped Democrats push their impeachment witch hunt against the President.
“We don’t have any plans to get involved in MI-03 at this time, seeing as we’re focused on some other key races to help regain the GOP’s House majority,” FreedomWorks spokesman Peter Vicenzi said to a reporter. “We’re going to support some incumbents as well, mainly [House Freedom Caucus] members.”
In addition, the Club for Growth has also declined to endorse Amash’s re-election efforts as an independent. Americans for Prosperity, a Koch-funded group that has distanced themselves from President Trump, has offered Amash no support as well. The fiscal conservative movement sees Amash as a cancer.
These organizations are following suit of the DeVos family, the influential Michigan-based conservatives who have a massive donor network that has supported Amash in the past. They announced last year that they were yanking their support for the turncoat Palestinian-American lawmaker. Amash’s fundraising network is drying up fast.
“Family members have expressed increasing concerns about a lack of representation for their district, the 3rd Congressional, and I would say an inability to advance efforts connected to important policy matters,” said DeVos family spokesman Nick Wasmiller, adding that “they have no plans” to give Amash a penny.
The liberaltarians at Reason Magazine are crying over the consequences to Amash’s reprehensible actions:
Amash, who co-founded the Freedom Caucus and was widely considered to be the brains of the group from 2015 to 2018, left the 30-member bloc last June, then three weeks later bolted from the Republican Party as a whole. It’s that last apostasy, coupled with his outspoken support for impeaching President Donald Trump, that has coincided with an epidemic of cold shoulders from the very organizations that before last summer routinely celebrated Amash’s intellectual independence and fiscal/constitutional conservatism…
The Cook Political Report last month moved its projection for the November 2020 election from “toss-up” to “lean Republican,” citing the loneliness of the pro-impeachment right. Democrats and Republicans are holding contested primaries for the nomination on August 4. Increasing the incumbent’s degree of difficulty is the fact that Michigan is one of a handful of states to allow for straight-ticket voting, meaning an entire party’s slate can be supported by checking just one box…
But the abandonment of Amash by limited government advocacy groups illustrates how party-dependent their commitment to principle is. As long as you fly the GOP flag, you’ll be eligible to receive a “Top Ten Reasons to Support Justin Amash for U.S. Congress in MI-3.” Support the impeachment of a Republican president, or leave your party and caucus behind, well, won’t you please sign our thank-you card to Rep. Jim Jordan for fighting “shifty Adam Schiff”?
Amash, who proudly calls himself a libertarian, is learning a thing or two about personal responsibility. His primary backers are anti-Trump neoconservative war hawks these days, as he circles the drains in the Washington D.C. swamp.
FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
