Pro-Trump Constituents to Hold ‘Squash Amash’ Rally

Some of Rep. Justin Amash’s constituents want him to resign.

Pro-Trump constituents of a Michigan congressman plan to protest him at his office next week.

“A group that supports President Donald Trump will host a rally denouncing U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, the first Republican in Congress to call for impeachment proceedings against Trump, on Friday, June 14, in Grand Rapids,” according to Michigan Live. 

Amash has recently gone on several Twitter binges calling for Trump’s impeachment, despite the fact that former Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into alleged Russian “collusion” turned up empty. For his condemnation of the President, Amash has enjoyed a great deal of praise from the liberal media.

“We want to make sure he knows here in Michigan we support our president,” said Diane Schindlbeck, co-founder of Michigan Trump Republicans told Michigan Live. “Justin Amash, as one of the elected officials here in West Michigan, is not listening to his own voter base, and his behavior is just ridiculous.”

The group started an online petition against Amash, too. The petition says that Amash “has consistently attacked and opposed the work of President Donald Trump,” and calls for him to resign:

Now therefore be it resolved that the undersigned citizen of the 3rd Congressional District of Michigan does hereby call on Justin Amash to act in an honorable manner and immediate resign as Representative to Congress; and

Be it Further Resolved, that this call be sent to all members of Congress to inform them that Justin Amash has lost all credibility with the citizens of the 3rd Congressional District of Michigan and that he no longer has the right to speak on our behalf.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Published

on

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
