Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has staked his claim as being the ‘Never Trump’ champion of the open borders crowd, emerging to doggedly oppose Trump as he attempts to stop the crisis at the border.
After leading the charge with Congressional Democrats to oppose Trump’s emergency measures declaration on the border, Amash took heat for being the only Republican to oppose a resolution in favor of voter integrity last week.

After the vote, Amash took to social media as he usually does to defend his vote. This time, he gave the rationale was that it is proper under the constitution to permit non-citizens to vote in certain elections. Say what!?!?
Amash, who has been a career attorney and politician his entire life, showed his incredible ability to delude his libertarian followers with this tweet:
I voted against a motion to amend a bill to criticize San Francisco for letting non-citizens vote in school board elections. I voted no because I’m a constitutionalist who opposes such federal interference in LOCAL elections. Non-citizens have voted locally since our founding.

Amash’s evident support of illegal immigrants in the voting booth has earned him a great deal of praise from the mainstream media. After getting great headlines from a Soros’ funded rag, the fake news merchants over at CNN published a gushing profile on Amash earlier today.
CNN wrote what is essentially a public relations piece on Amash for his support of illegal immigration and militant opposition to Trump’s agenda:
“For most Republicans, life in the House minority is a big change. But for Rep. Justin Amash, in a sense, it’s more of the same.
“It’s just a different set of people doing the wrong thing,” the Michigan Republican said in an interview with CNN…
And his fierce independence could be a sign of trouble for Republicans in the future: In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Amash recently declined to rule out running for president as a libertarian in 2020. “I would never rule anything out,” said Amash. “That’s not on my radar right now, but I think that it is important that we have someone in there who is presenting a vision for America that is different from what these two parties are presenting.”
CNN was thrilled to give a platform for Amash to throw his fellow members of the House Freedom Caucus, who have emerged as Trump’s most reliable supporters, under the bus as well:
“Amash was the sole member of the caucus to vote against Trump’s use of emergency powers to seize funds for his long-desired wall along the southern border, even though the Freedom Caucus was known for lambasting President Barack Obama’s executive maneuvering to get around Congress.
“In some sense you’ve delegitimized objections to the President,” Amash said of his peers. “You’ve built up such credibility for him that you just can’t challenge him anymore.”
Asked if he’d thought about leaving the Freedom Caucus in recent months, the congressman admitted he has been “disenchanted” enough to consider it at times.
Amash is publicly flirting with the idea of jumping to the Libertarian Party to oppose Trump and siphon constitutionally-minded voters from him and assist the Democrats in the 2020 presidential election. CNN explains:
“It’s not clear what’s next for Amash, whether another term in the House or something new. He admits he’s thought about everything from breaking away from the GOP to launching a presidential bid.
“I never stop thinking about these sorts of things,” he told CNN. “It’s not because I have any immediate plans or anything like that, but I never stop thinking about those things because there is a big problem with the current two-party system we have, and someone has to shake it up.”
“Now, is it possible for anyone to shake it up and make a difference?” he added. “I don’t know.”‘
In addition to getting praise from the mainstream media, Amash has emerged as the darling of corporate lobbying organizations like the Club for Growth which wants an abrupt end to President Trump’s ‘America First’ trade and immigration policies.
.@clubforgrowth is proud to present @justinamash with the #DefenderOfEconomicFreedom Award! His strong voting record proves his commitment to economic freedom. The people of #MI03 should be very proud! 🏆💯 pic.twitter.com/y0PftEeQYK

Amash appears to be emerging as one of the establishment’s top choices as opposition to President Trump.
By standing for non-citizen voting and supporting open borders, Amash is willing to stab his own constituents in the back to boost his own political star.
Perhaps, he needs a primary challenger for 2020 before he can hurt his party and his country further.
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
