‘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.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April

It’s a aspiration, not a plan.

Published

House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.

Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”

Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.

“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.

Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.

It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
