Justin Amash Quits House Oversight Committee Before GOP Leadership Can Remove Him

You can’t fire me…I quit!

Published

After news broke yesterday that Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) would be removed from the House Oversight Committee this week after turning his back on the Republican Party, Amash decided to get ahead of the issue, leaving the committee before he could get the boot.

“Today, I sent the attached letter to Republican leaders as formal notification that I am withdrawing my membership in the House Republican Conference and, consistent with House rules, resigning from the Committee on Oversight and Reform,” Amash tweeted on Monday morning.

He also posted a letter that he submitted to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) formalizing his resignation.

Amash has recently used his post on the Oversight Committee to help Democratic Party witch hunts against President Donald Trump. He supported Democratic overreach to censure Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross based on their refusal to submit privileged documents regarding the proposed citizenship question on the 2020 census.

“The Democrats have continued to attack this administration on dubious grounds, and they aren’t going to let the facts get in the way of their own concocted stories,” Ross said of the Democrat-led stunt against the Trump administration that Amash joined.

“By holding a contempt vote, the committee has already demonstrated its scorn for the Constitution, continually refusing to engage in the constitutionally-mandated accommodation process. That is far more serious than the empty stunt the committee performed today,” he added.

Amash also voted with Democrats on the Oversight Committee to subpoena White House counselor Kellyanne Conway over alleged violations of the Hatch Act.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Freedom Caucus pointed out the ridiculousness of the effort against Conway by Amash and his Democrat counterparts.

After being forced out of the Oversight Committee, Amash will have to rely on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to assign him to another committee. Considering how useful he has been to the Democrats in their war against Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda, it may not be out of the question.

“He votes more with Nancy Pelosi than he ever votes with me. It’s a question whether he’s even in our Republican Conference as a whole,” House Minority Leader McCarthy said about Amash in May.

Amash, who has emerged as the leading cheerleader for impeaching Trump, will likely continue nestling up to Democrats as he continues his campaign to sabotage the President for self-serving political gain.

COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud

Lankford is an ethnomasochist.

Published

Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.

Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.

The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”

“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.

“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.

Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.

“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:

Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”

In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.

“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”

The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
