Things are getting worse for Justin Amash.

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.

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!

That’s a new one!

A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!

Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.

Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”

Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.

An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.

Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.

There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
