Michigan Independent libertarian congressman Justin Amash confirmed he’s considering a presidential campaign in a Monday night tweet.

The former Republican was driven out of the party for supporting Robert Mueller’s hoax witch hunt in July of 2019, later going on to advocate for President Donald Trump’s impeachment for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.

He’s remade himself into a Democrat favorite, conveniently providing moralistic condemnations of Trump when it suits the political interests of the Left. But Amash’s consideration of an independent presidential campaign could potentially make him into a Mitt Romney figure, posing a problem for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and stringent ‘vote blue’ neoliberal Democrats.

A potential Amash independent (or Libertarian Party) presidential campaign could provide the Michigan member of Congress with a convenient way to avoid competing in an upcoming election for his House seat. Amash will compete on the ballot as an independent, but polling for his prospects in a GOP primary(when he was still in the party) showed Amash trailing well behind two Republican candidates for the house seat, state representatives Jim Lower and Lynn Afendoulis.

If Amash declined to run for reelection in Michigan’s 3rd District for the nominal purposes of a presidential campaign, he’d conveniently avoid the possibility of facing an embarrassing defeat to a Republican challenger in the red district.

There’s still a strong libertarian element within the Republican Party, represented by legislators such as Rand Paul and Thomas Massie. But Amash’s promotion of Russia and impeachment hysteria places him well within the political parameters of the Democratic or Libertarian parties.

Amash says he’s examining the prospect of a presidential campaign this week. We’ll probably know soon if he’s just playing with the idea, or if he seriously intends to make a go at it as either an independent or a Libertarian candidate.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
