    American Conservative ^ | August 31, 2020 | By Julie Kelly
    s their preferred candidate crashes in national polls and the race tightens to a dead heat in Joe Biden’s must-win states, NeverTrump “conservatives” are once again taking their marching orders from Democrats. The death, destruction, and mayhem besieging Democratic-run cities across the country, NeverTrump dutifully recites, is all Donald Trump’s fault. Team Biden crafted the inane talking points to deflect concerns that the violence in cities such as Portland and Kenosha rapidly was backfiring on Democrats; scenes of angry mobs attacking Trump supporters, including Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife, leaving the White House late Thursday night after the...

    Michigan Rep. Justin Amash (L) confirmed Thursday evening that he was not seeking reelection to Congress, in an apparent end to his 2020 political aspirations. Amash retweeted an article from The Detroit News that quoted an aide to the congressman as saying his reelection campaign had "idled" in February, and that Amash did not intend to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination for the district after abandoning the Republican Party last year. "He hasn't been campaigning for any office and doesn't plan to seek the nomination for any office," an adviser told the publication. "I love representing our community in Congress....

    Rep. Justin Amash (L-Mich.) announced Saturday he will not run for president as a Libertarian, saying the circumstances do not “lend themselves” toward a successful third-party campaign. “I’ve spent nearly three weeks assessing the race, appearing in media, talking to delegates and donors, watching the Libertarian Party’s convention plan unfold, and gathering feedback from family, friends, and other advisers,” Amash tweeted. “After much reflection, I’ve concluded that circumstances don’t lend themselves to my success as a candidate for president this year, and therefore I will not be a candidate.” Amash maintained that a third party candidate could contribute a fresh...

But with Amash going around promoting trannies, he may pull more liberal voters than conservatives.

    The independent Michigan congressman announced an exploratory committee on Wednesday, a clear indication he is serious about initiating a bid for president. "We’re ready for a presidency that will restore respect for our Constitution and bring people together. I’m excited and honored to be taking these first steps toward serving Americans of every background as president," Amash said in a tweet Tuesday evening. "Americans are ready for practical approaches based in humility and trust of the people." He must secure the party's nomination at its national convention.

    Rep. Justin Amash is considering a third-party presidential run this year to challenge President Trump and Joe Biden, and will be making a decision “soon,” his campaign said Wednesday. The campaign for Amash, the former Republican, put out a statement Wednesday saying the Michigan independent will make a decision “soon.” “In mid-February, Justin Amash paused active campaigning for his congressional seat to carefully consider a presidential run,” his campaign said. “He has been discussing the potential campaign with his family, his friends, his team, and others, and a decision can be expected soon.” […] Amash is a libertarian-minded conservative who...

    Democrats were perplexed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision not to name independent Rep. Justin Amash one of President Trump’s impeachment trial managers. Pelosi instead selected seven Democrats, including Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), resisting a campaign by at least 30 House Democrats who asked Pelosi to pick the former Republican from Michigan. Democrats who pushed Amash argued his selection would give the appearance of bipartisanship. And her decision was derided by critics as a “missed opportunity.”

    During President Donald Trump’s interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Friday, the president spoke about his positive relationship with Saudi Arabia, including how the country is paying to use American troops. Conservative Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who until recently was a Republican, responded to Trump’s remarks in a tweet, saying, “He sells troops.” “Saudi Arabia is paying us for [our troops]. We have a very good relationship with Saudi Arabia,” Trump said. “I said, listen, you’re a very rich country. You want more troops? I’m going to send them to you, but you’ve got to pay us. They’re paying...

    A group of freshman House Democrats are on a private crusade to get Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.) appointed as an impeachment manager, according to a new report. The group, led by Rep. Dean Phillips (D-Minn.) and consisting of about 30 freshman Dems, has asked House leaders to consider Amash as a potential manager, the Washington Post reported. The now-independent congressman was formerly a member of the GOP and the House Freedom Caucus until earlier this year, when he publicly argued that President Trump had committed impeachable offenses based on former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. His comments, along with a...

    The powerful DeVos family said on May 22 that it will no longer provide financial backing to a Michigan congressman who is the first and only Republican to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. DeVos family members have not donated to Rep. Justin Amash (D-Mich.) during the current campaign cycle and do not plan to do so in the future, according to the spokesman for the family’s RDV Corp., Nick Wasmiller. After Amash accused Trump of impeachable conduct, two pro-Trump Republicans announced they will challenge him in the state’s primary election. Amash has not faced a primary challenge...

    Independent Michigan Rep. Justin Amash speculated Tuesday that some retiring Republican lawmakers may seek office again once President Trump leaves office. Amash, theorizing that numerous White House officials who have defended President Trump’s call to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky told CNN’s Erin Burnett they “feel trapped in that position.” “I hear that from my colleagues on the House floor” he added. “They wish they weren’t doing this, and frankly I think a lot of the retirements that we hear about as well are just trying to ride out this president and they might think of coming back into public office...

    CNN contributor Van Jones told Democrats the President Trump impeachment issue was a no-win situation. "It’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans, it makes them want to rally around the flag," Jones said Thursday on CNN. "When I was anti-Bill Clinton from the Left in the '90s, and then they tried to impeach him, suddenly Clinton was my best friend. I was like, 'Leave Bill Clinton alone.' So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation," he said. Jones, 51, also warned that Democrats...

    VIDEO Following the first Democrat candidate debate in Detroit, CNN's Van Jones claimed that "WE" are all still in therapy over the 2016 election. Well, Jones was probably thinking of himself as well as his CNN colleagues along with many other liberals but for the rest of us, WE are still celebrating the 2016 election results. However, as depressing as the 2016 election result was for liberals, it will be nothing compared to their meltdown coming in 2020 following Trump's re-election. Look for the liberals to act as if they are infected with the rage virus from the movie "28...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset,” arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clinton’s criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.” “The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. “Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign believes the ongoing fight over impeachment will rally the party’s base and make the difference in key races next year. Members of the Trump campaign’s communications team told MLive that House Democrats only flipped Republican seats in 2018 because 8.8 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home during the midterm elections. Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump’s 2020 campaign, said House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry will bolster Trump’s prospects of reelection and GOP candidates’ chances of victory down the ballot. In 2018, GOP candidates lost races for all statewide offices, control of...
