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.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress

Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.

Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.

Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.

Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.

“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”

Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.

“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.

Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.

“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”

“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.

His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:

The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.

It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
