‘Libertarian’ Justin Amash Abandons the Republican Party, Surrenders to the Political Left

He has been working with the Democrats for months to undermine President Donald Trump.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has finally made it official. He is leaving the Republican Party, and made the announcement on Independence Day in an op/ed in the globalist Washington Post.

“Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party,” Amash wrote. “No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it.”

Amash is framing his abandonment of his political party and his betrayal of his constituents as a rejection of partisan politics.

“The Republican Party, I believed, stood for limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty — principles that had made the American Dream possible for my family,” he wrote.

“In recent years, though, I’ve become disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it. The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions,” Amash added.

But a close examination of Amash’s voting record shows that he has in all actuality flipped to the Democrats. His support for the impeachment of Trump is to the left of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he voted to affirm illegals in the voting booth, he supported Democratic overreach to censure Trump administration officials based on the proposed census citizenship question, he voted with the Democrats to subpoena Kellyanne Conway over fake ‘Hatch Act’ violations, and he voted against denying green cards to known violent gang members.

His opposition to Trump has won him the monetary support of ‘Never Trump’ neocon Bill Kristol’s Democrat-funded front group as well as gushing coverage from the fake news media.

“My parents, both immigrants, were Republicans. I supported Republican candidates throughout my early adult life and then successfully ran for office as a Republican,” Amash said of his Palestinian heritage.

But now, Amash is no longer a Republican. He will be rallying voters against Trump in the key battleground state of Michigan, and liberals are thrilled that Amash’s self-serving subterfuge may put them back in the White House come 2020.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
