Who Is Justin Amash And Why Is He Willing To Go Against His Own Party? – NPR

As far as I can see Justin Amash is a patriot.

I love the backstory in this article from NPR. His parents are both immigrants from the Middle East. I guess Trump would call them Shit-hole adjacent countries, I call them countries.his work ethic is uncompromised. Even as a child he would not go out and play with his friends until he finished his homework. That ended up making him the valedictorian and he has excelled ever since. He’s very young to be in Congress, 39, compared to those old white men that permeate the Republican Party.

And now the Republican party is turning his back on him. But he is not flinching. I love this Twitter give and take what he had with Donald Trump jr.

From the NPR article by Dustin Dwyer

If there is anything that we can take away, that we did not know already, from the George Stephanopoulos interview with Trump is that Trump talks like a mob boss. And so it is not out of character for his son to act like a mob boss also. Although both would be terrible, seriously if anybody watched The Sopranos, Goodfellas are The Godfather movies you’ll know that Trump and his family would not make it very long. But I guess I’ll president has ambitions to be a mob boss. Not very reassuring?

I bring up Watergate a lot on my blog. I guess it thrust me into my love of politics at a very young age. I watched every single minutes of the Watergate hearings on the 13 inch GE PortaColor television that my parents gave me for my bar mitzvah. I had a summer job answering phones and I got my boss to let me watch the hearings on my television what’s on your piece in one year and answering the phones with the other.I would carry my TV back and forth everyday and trust me it wasn’t lite. At the beginning of the hearings there was no Republican support for impeaching vixen but as history now tells us by the end of the hearings take it. Maybe because make sense want a second term and there was no election could take him out of office.

I understand Justin Amash and his wish to have Trump impeached, if I could see this guy out of office tomorrow it would make me so happy. I would deal with a Mike Pence presidency or maybe not. One of those phrases that Trump uses on the media is enemy of the people. Honestly it’s the Republican party and Trump who are the enemy of the people. So even someone that he’s seemingly benign like Mike Pence trying to make himself look is actually deep down a radical bigot.

I think that the best way to Democrats can go is through impeachment inquiries but without actually losing in an impeachment fight. The inquiries will be chiseling away at Trump’s support and hopefully he’ll the weakend enough that by November 2020 he is defeated in a I landslide.

As far as Justin Amash is concerned, he can count on my donating to his re-election campaign. He’s not in my party but he’s the kind of leaders we need in our country.

A congressman eloquently schools someone who insulted people with 10th-grade educations.

People matter, all lives matter. The number of people who have invented or started great successful enterprises that did not graduate high school is countless. I am not advocating for dropping out of high school in anyway I think education is the best path to a successful life. But for whatever reason someone was not able to continue their education does not mean that they are lesser of a person.

I guess he can start a career in fitness instruction and if she goes to jail he may be able to defend himself to a point

March 17 2015

Illinois Republican congressman Aaron Schock resigns over charges that he and properly used campaign funds and donations. this all started when a reporter went to his office and thought he was on the set of Downton Abbey. The decorator was there and she said that she had given this to the congressman for free. this started people looking at him and put him under the microscope. Today it was revealed that he charged double the mileage that he has on his car for reimbursement by taxpayers. he was the first congressman elected who was born in the eighties. And because of gerrymandering this is a safe Republican seat.
