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.
Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
