House Freedom Caucus Leader Says Amash is Toast for Pushing Trump Impeachment

Amash was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, but Chairman Mark Meadows says he is likely finished in Congress.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus when it formed in 2015, but the organization that he has been apart of since its inception can no longer stand with the anti-Trump Congressman.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the current Chairman of the Freedom Caucus, admitted today that Amash will not be receiving much support from the GOP after siding with the Democrats and the deep state to give bipartisan cover to the ‘Russian collusion’ witch hunt against President Trump.

Furthermore, Amash has become such a political liability that Meadows believes that ejecting Amash from the caucus has become a real possibility.

Amash has not been a particularly active member of the Freedom Caucus in the age of Trump. He has been offended by their support of the President and rarely attends their meetings any longer.

“From the time the president was elected, I was urging them to remain independent and to be willing to push back against the president where they thought he was wrong,” Amash said to CNN of the Freedom Caucus. “They’ve decided to stick with the president time and again, even where they disagree with him privately.”

“They are good, kind people,” Amash added. “I may have my disagreements with some of the current approach, but I’d still take them over pretty much anyone in Congress.”

Although Amash may maintain a good rapport with members of the House Freedom Caucus, it will be difficult for them to support his bid for Congress. He doubled down on his impeachment position earlier today.

Two primary challengers have already emerged to face Amash in Michigan’s third Congressional district, and more may follow in the weeks to come.

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’

This is what real conservative leadership is all about.

Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.

Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.

“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.

“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.

Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.

One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”

AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”

… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.

Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
