Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) earned massive praise from the leftist resistance this weekend, after the GOP’s most prominent ‘Never Trumper’ formally endorsed impeachment of President Donald Trump in a series of tweets.
Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

While Amash may have curried favor with liberals who oppose the President, a fervor is growing against him within the Michigan Republican Party. State Rep. Jim Lower (R-Greenville) wasted no time in announcing his primary challenge, and he believes his experience in Michigan state politics gives him the pedigree to mount a credible challenge to Amash.
“I am a Pro-Trump, Pro-Life, Pro-Jobs, Pro-2nd Amendment, Pro-Family Values Republican. Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” Lower said in a press release announcing his candidacy.
He continued: “Amash has not only failed to support President Trump as the President works to make the United States stronger and safer, he has now united with radical liberals like Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit) to try and bring down our President. He must be replaced and I am going to do it.”
Amash has received favor from Tlaib, a radical socialist Muslim, and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), another Islamist who is known for making incendiary remarks against Jews, for his support of impeachment.
You are putting country first, and that is to be commended. We both took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Please let me know if you are interested signing on to the resolution to begin the investigation into impeachment. https://t.co/f5CT3uB81d

Lower confirmed that he was already planning to primary Amash, as the Grand Rapids Congressman had been opposing Trump for years on issues such as immigration, trade, foreign policy, and others.
“It is never easy to defeat an incumbent, but we are going to do it. I have been quietly been meeting with grassroots activists, party leaders, voters, donors, and elected officials in the 3rd Congressional District and the response has been humbling and gratifying,” he said.
“I have also already hired my political team, which I will be announcing later this week. It will take at least $1 million to beat Amash and we believe we can raise that amount and more,” Lower added.
Lower points to Amash’s record, including his votes to continue funding planned parenthood, reject military foreign aid to Israel, oppose a resolution condemning illegal immigrants in the voting booth, and other votes as reasons he is unfit to represent the GOP in 2020.
“Contrast Amash’s record with my own record of accomplishments in just 2 ½ years in Lansing. I will be a strong voice, vote and leader for West Michigan, all you need to do is compare our records,” Lower said.
Lower boasts endorsements from Right to Life, the National Rifle Association, the Michigan Farm Bureau, and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce to show off his conservative credentials.
“West Michigan deserves a congressman who will actually represent the values of our community, and who will work with President Trump and other members of Congress to get things done. I will be that Congressman,” Lower said to conclude his press release.
Amash has another primary challenger, veterans’ rights activist Tom Norton, who has announced his run. More contenders may throw their hats in the ring in the upcoming weeks, as Amash is perceived as vulnerable following his support for impeaching President Trump.
Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death
On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.
The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.
Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.
“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”
Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.
“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”
Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:
Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
Derek Chauvin officially charged in death of #GeorgeFloyd with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
