Justin Amash running against Trump in 2020 would be ‘a supreme act of patriotism’: Kellyanne Conway’s husband

Published

on

The first Republican congressman to publicly push impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump is being recruited to challenge Trump in 2020 as a Libertarian, Reason reported Monday.

“With the president and his sycophants in full attack mode, the effort to persuade Amash to join the Libertarian Party and run for president is intensifying,” the magazine explained. “If he were to run as a Libertarian, Amash could have a big effect on the 2020 presidential race.”

Amash would likely be the only Michigan candidate on the 2020 ballot and could potentially get enough third party votes as a conservative running against Trump from the right to cost him the state — and likely re-election with it.

“For this reason, those in the Trump orbit might come to regret running him out of the Republican Party, if that is indeed what happens,” Reason added.

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway said such a bid by Amash would be patriotic.

“This would be a supreme act of patriotism by Rep. Amash,” he wrote.

Conway is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, who was the campaign manager for Trump’s 2016 bid.

Ocasio-Cortez: Democratic refusal to impeach Trump is a ‘bigger national scandal’ than Trump’s lawbreaking

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., criticized House Democrats on Saturday for their unwillingness to impeach President Donald Trump despite new revelations that he may have pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on one of his potential Democratic rivals in 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden.

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night.

She also retweeted 2020 presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, who responded to a story about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to reevaluate her position on impeaching Trump in spite of the Ukraine story by saying, "What is Congress waiting for? This is crazy. Unless we take action now, we will see the end of American democracy."

‘Morrison in the USA sucking up to Trump’: Aussies furious to see prime minister campaigning for Trump

Published

President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison appeared at a rally in Ohio Sunday, prompting Aussies to complain that it's unacceptable for their leader to be campaigning for Trump.

Trump invited himself to a Houston, Texas rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where he tried to campaign for the U.S. president with Indian-American voters. Sadly, however, nearly 80 percent of Indian-American voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.
