Rand Paul: Justin Amash Supports ‘An Abuse of Intelligence Power’ by Pushing Trump’s Impeachment

Blindly trusting the word of a federal bureaucrat with an agenda isn’t particularly libertarian.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is not happy with his friend Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) for supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump based on the contents of the Mueller report.

“I actually think the libertarian position on the investigation is ― you know, libertarians, we’ve been very, very critical of the intelligence community having too much power, including congressman Amash has said, you know, really you should have to get a warrant before you get an American’s records,” Paul said to the Huffington Post on Wednesday.

The Kentucky Senator finds it strange that Amash isn’t very concerned with the civil liberties violations committed against President Trump and the precedent it may set in the years to come, giving the deep state the ability to undermine electoral results if the entrenched bureaucracy does not like the result.

Paul never bought into the Mueller report because of his roots in the libertarian movement. He called conclusion of a years-long special investigation the “antithesis of libertarianism” constituting “an abuse of intelligence power consistent with what libertarians have been complaining about for a long time.”

Paul did give his friend Amash some credit, saying he supported the Congressman’s proposed House amendment “which says you have to have a warrant before you target Americans because foreign intelligence warrants have a lower standard.”

Another libertarian Republican who is close to both Paul and Amash, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has also criticized the Mueller probe as a gross overreach of government power, contradicting the blind trust Amash puts into the deep state’s findings.

Paul has accused lawmakers who are overly obsessed about Trump’s involvement with Russia as being guilty of “Trump derangement syndrome.” Amash may have contracted a serious case, as he continues to stake out his claim as the pro-impeachment Republican despite Trump being cleared of any Russian collusion.

The House Freedom Caucus, of which Amash was a founding member, voted to condemn him yesterday. Liberty supporters in the GOP are likely to continue distancing themselves from Amash as he hastens his efforts to use the Mueller report to harm Trump’s presidency.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
