A new primary poll for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional district shows Rep. Justin Amash (R) down by a wide margin to his pro-Trump primary opponent.
A Practical Political Consulting poll gives State Rep. Jim Lower, a republican from the state’s 70th district a 16 point lead over Amash, clocking in at 49% over Amash’s 33%.
Amash recently spouted off in several Twitter threads, claiming that the results of former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on Russian “collusion,” which turned up empty, was grounds for impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. His move sparked harsh backlash from pro-Trump constituents and questions about his dubious business ties to China.
He resigned from the House Freedom Caucus this week after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) admonished him for supporting state abuse of surveillance powers.
Big League Politics reported:
Michigan libertarian Congressman Justin Amash resigned from the House Freedom Caucus on Monday night.
Amash had been earlier censured by the caucus for his left-wing policy stances in favor of impeaching President Trump. He joined with Democrats in drawing reaching conclusions from an empty Mueller Report, claiming that Bill Barr was obfuscating Presidential crimes to personally protect Trump.
The Michigan congressman told Politico that he “no longer wished to be a distraction to the group.” He hadn’t shown up to caucus meetings in over a year and seems lately to have been associating more frequently with progressive Democrats. He became a darling of establishment favorites like Mitt Romney for his Russia-conspiracy motivated attacks on the President.
Traditionally libertarians of Amash’s ilk have supported a foreign policy of peace, seeking to avoid the jingoistic and sensational rhetoric that fuels the grandiose Russia conspiracy of the left. But Amash seems to have completely disregarded that, taking the premise of a grand Russian interference plot at face value, directly from elite progressives in mainstream media and Washington.
Trump is reportedly considering supporting Lower in the primary race, which takes place on March 10.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
