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.
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.
— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) November 24, 2020
The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
