Justin Amash Supports Nancy Pelosi’s Rule-Breaking to Call President Trump ‘Racist’ on House Floor

Amash once again shows he is a tool of the far-left Democrats.

It was ruled today by the House that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) violated the chamber’s rules when she referred to President Donald Trump as a “racist” on the House floor.

The House voted to keep her words in the record despite her violation by a vote of 231-190, and also allowed Pelosi to keep debating on the House floor.

“Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets,” Pelosi said in violation of the rules.

“To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people,” she added.

The rules, which go back to the days of founding father Thomas Jefferson and his writings, ban House members from using language that is “personally offensive” to the President, although they are permitted to criticize him in an official capacity.

“As such, remarks may not refer to the President as a racist, having made ‘racial slurs’ or ‘racial epithets’” the Jefferson’s Manual states.

Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), usually a stickler for rules and procedure, voted to let Pelosi slide on her rule-breaking behavior.

The liberal media is singing Amash’s praises for once again doing the bidding of the Democrats:

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) was forced to announce that Pelosi had violated House rules in her rant against President Trump’s alleged racism.

“The words used by the gentlewoman from California contained an accusation of racist behavior on the part of the President,” Hoyer said. “The words should not be used in debate.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took Pelosi to task for her lack of professionalism in breaking the rules.

“What we just saw was a very sad day in this House — probably a historic day, so the very person who is supposed to uphold the rules broke the rules of the House,” he said to reporters.

“Are they going to treat her different? You couldn’t even find a Democrat to stay in the chair to read what the parliamentarian decision is,” he added. “Decorum matters. The rules matter.”

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) was also appalled by Pelosi’s outrageous behavior, as the Democrats become more unhinged in the age of Trump.

“Regardless of what the rules say, it appears political statements will rule the day,” Meadows said to reporters.

“We would be well served as an institution to not become like some of our allies’ parliament debate — have a more civil discord,” he added.

Pelosi was unrepentant about her rule breaking and takes no responsibility for her actions.

“I’m proud of the attention that is being called to it because what the president said was completely inappropriate against our colleagues, but not just against them, but against so many people in our country to say ‘Go back where you came from,’” she said.

President Trump is making the Democrats show their true colors, and it is not pretty. The House voted affirmatively tonight on a resolution condemning Trump over patriotic tweets he made over the weekend against socialist Democrats.

‘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).
