Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) remains desperate to grab mainstream media headlines as he plots a possible presidential run in 2020 in order to sabotage Donald Trump.
He received glowing coverage in Rolling Stone on Tuesday, with the extreme leftist magazine referring to him as “the last Republican in America.”
“My gratification comes from being true to the principles that I speak about,” Amash told the liberal reporter. “At the end of the day, if I feel like I stuck to my principles, I go home happy.”
Amash’s principles include voting rights for illegal aliens, taxpayer-funded surgeries for transgender military personnel, and refusing to defund Planned Parenthood. The Rolling Stone is happy to masquerade as if these principles are somehow authentically Republican for the purpose of their disingenuous narrative.
“I want to show people back in Washington that this can be done,” Amash said about betraying his former party. “I think my colleagues expect that if you leave your party you’re in big trouble.”
He hopes that he can engineer a mass exodus from the GOP in order to hand the country back to the Democrats, and told the reporter that a presidential run very well may be in the works.
Amash holds a particular level of disdain toward his former colleagues in the House Freedom Caucus, who have emerged as President Trump’s most ardent defenders against the ongoing impeachment witch hunt against him.
“I used to feel like I had more people who were willing to stand up for the right thing,” Amash says. “In recent years and especially in recent months, people have capitulated and allowed the system to consume them.”
Amash has led the charge on impeachment, staking out a position that is far to the Left of even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on the issue.
We swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath to support and defend Donald Trump’s abuse of the office of the presidency.

This president will be in power for only a short time, but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name. To my Republican colleagues: Step outside your media and social bubble. History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous, and false defenses of this man.

He turned his back on the GOP and the constituents who elected him as a Republican to support the President on July 4.
“Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party,” Amash wrote at the time.
“No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it,” he added.
Amash hopes that his antics will be enough to sabotage President Trump’s re-election chances, at least in his home state of Michigan, which will be an important battleground next year. The libertine legislator has emerged as the Benedict Arnold of our time.
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
