Justin Amash Just Lost One of His Biggest Backers: The DeVos Family

Amash will be relying on outside money and ‘Never Trump’ support if he wants to keep his U.S. House seat next year.

The DeVos family, the rich conservatives who are a mainstay of west Michigan GOP politics, have announced that they no longer support Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) following his public endorsement for impeachment of President Donald Trump this weekend.

DeVos family spokesman Nick Wasmiller told the Detroit News that they have not contributed to Amash during this political cycle and “they have no plans to do so.” He says they came to this decision before Amash announced his belief that Trump was guilty of “impeachable conduct,” as they had noticed a decided shift from the Congressman.

“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,” Wasmiller said.

Amash refused to address news that he had lost the support of his long-time backers.

“I don’t have any reaction,” Amash said today before denying that his crusade against Trump is motivated by political ambition.

“My job is to defend the Constitution,” he said. “I’m laying out the information I want to lay out, and it’s not about, you know, getting on TV or anything like that. I want to make sure that I’m presenting it in the most clear-cut, sober way possible.”

Despite losing the support of the DeVos family, Amash still arrogantly dismisses primary challengers who have announced their opposition to him.

“It’s not serious,” Amash said today of his announced opponents, Michigan House Rep. Jim Lower and veterans rights advocate Tom Norton.

The DeVos family is currently undecided on whether they plan to support one of Amash’s announced opponents, or perhaps a future one as the Grand Rapids Congressman has become a lightning rod within Michigan conservative politics.

“I don’t think they’ve considered that up until this point,” Wasmiller said. “I think those folks have announced fairly recently, and (the family will) go through their standard review process to determine if they will support someone, and if so, who that is.”

Amash claims his stance having influence with unnamed GOP House members, and believes it may stir a drive to impeach the President from other Republican Congressmen who are now taking FBI spook Robert Mueller’s report more seriously.

“I’ve had people who, after I made my tweets, said, boy, they better review it more carefully now, and they hadn’t really gone through it before,” he said.

“When you read Volume Two and see the totality of it, it speaks for itself. So people who are baffled by it, I wonder how carefully they read Volume Two, because it’s there. There’s a difference between skimming the pages and actually reading it and understanding it,” Amash added.

Amash will likely continue to outflank most Democrats heading into 2020 as he attempts to form a bipartisan coalition to undermine President Trump.

Twitter Censors Congressman Matt Gaetz to Protect ANTIFA Domestic Terrorists

Twitter is a social media platform that harbors terrorism.

The social media platform Twitter censored Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Monday because he called out the domestic terrorists in ANTIFA in a post.

The offending Tweet can be seen here:

Gaetz has repeatedly refused to back down from his assertion that ANTIFA should be hunted down like ISIS and similar terrorist groups:

Twitter is once again giving harbor to ANTIFA terrorists, as journalist Laura Loomer has pointed out is often the case. She has called for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be locked up because he regularly allows his platform to be used by the terror group to promote violence and harassment.

Big League Politics reported on Loomer’s call for action against a Silicon Valley giant that unabashedly stands with the enemies of America:

Congressional candidate and banished journalist Laura Loomer is calling for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be arrested because of his association with the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.

“After censoring President Donald Trump’s tweets about violent riots, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey put #BlackLivesMatter as the header on the official Twitter Twitter account,” Loomer wrote in a post on the social media platform Parler.

Loomer noted that Dorsey has allowed his platform to be used by ANTIFA members despite the fact that they have egregiously flouted their terms of service by organizing terrorist violence and targeted harassment campaigns. At the same time, Twitter has punished conservative leaders like Loomer with lifetime bans for merely expressing their own opinions in a non-violent manner.

“Jack Dorsey is aiding and abetting terrorist organizations by allowing for ANTIFA terrorists and Islamic terrorists to have access where they are promoting anarchy and lethal riots,” she wrote.

“In the middle of a national emergency, he is also censoring the commander in chief who is posting about the army and national guard responding to the riots,” she added.

Loomer believes that there is a case for Dorsey to be tried with treason for his actions, and the feds should set their sights on him for enabling some of the worst rioting in U.S. history.

“For this, Jack Dorsey should immediately have his home raided by the feds Roger Stone style and be charged with inciting acts of domestic terrorism in America,” she wrote.

“It’s time for Jack Dorsey to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting terrorists and committing TREASON. #LockHimUp,” she added.

President Trump has announced that ANTIFA forces will be treated like terrorists, as Big League Politics has been urging him to do for many years.

It may be time for ANTIFA and their sympathizers like Dorsey to be treated like enemy combatants.
