Post Date: 2017-04-07 00:30:02 by Gatlin
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) asserted Thursday night that President Trump needs congressional authorization for military action in Syria after Trump ordered an airstrike in the country following a deadly chemical attack earlier this week. "While we all condemn the atrocities in Syria, the United States was not attacked," Paul said in a statement shortly after reports that the U.S. had launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against an airfield in Syria. "The President needs congressional authorization for military action as required by the Constitution, and I call on him to come to Congress for a proper debate," Paul said. "Our prior interventions in this region ...

On Wednesday morning, the White House confirmed that Bannon had been removed from the NSC's top committee, saying that the political advisor had been placed there in order to serve as a check on then National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was himself removed from the job after less than 30 days in office.

BREAKING : Trey Gowdy Takes Over “Russia Probe”
Post Date: 2017-04-06 15:51:40 by Gatlin
On Thursday, Devin Nunes stepped aside on the Russia probe. His decision came in light of desperate liberals filing false ethics allegations against him. Nunes correctly stated the charges were false, but it was in the best interest of the probe to have someone else take over. And much to the chagrin of every liberal, pitbull Trey Gowdy is the guy taking over. Ha, ha, ha, ha. WASHINGTON South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy will now be one of the top Republicans leading the House Intelligence Committees investigation into Russia. On Thursday Chair Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced he was stepping aside in light of accusations filed against him in the Office of ...

How Rand Paul suddenly became Donald Trump's best buddy
Post Date: 2017-04-06 02:49:33 by Gatlin
Rand Paul once called Donald Trump a "delusional narcissist" and an "orange-faced windbag." Which makes the fact that the Kentucky senator has emerged as the chief defender of the President's unproven claims of being wire-tapped by the Obama Administration all the more amazing. "This was a witch hunt that began with the Obama administration, sour grapes on the way out the door," Paul said Tuesday of the reported requested unmasking of Trump campaign officials by former national security adviser Susan Rice. "They were going to use the intelligence apparatus to attack Trump, and I think they did." (Paul took it even further, arguing that Rice ...
If You’re a Libertarian & Hate Rand Paul, You’re the Problem
Post Date: 2017-04-06 02:28:17 by Gatlin
Im going to say this as simply as possible: Rand Paul is the best member of the Senate and the most libertarian leaning senator in over half a century, comparable to Robert Taft, who was the Senate Majority Leader in the early 1950s. Rand Paul was this man who in 2009 I remember seeing announce a bid for the Senate and felt it was kind of a long shot. He went up against a popular statewide-elected Republican in a primary, and via small online donations, a realistic take on libertarianism that fits the demographics of Kentucky, and a ton of work from volunteers, he won both the primary and general elections in landslide wins. He was elected to the Senate and for the last six years ...

Post Date: 2017-04-03 23:29:54 by Gatlin
Dont believe the lying media when they tell you Americans are unhappy with President Trump. These are the same liars who spread fake polls for months and told you Hillary was going to win. They have an anti-trump agenda and will PUSH and PUSH it at all costs. All bets are off when it comes to tearing down President Trump.

BREAKING : Schiff is Suddenly Weak and Careful, Likely Knows Obama Admin Spied
Post Date: 2017-04-02 21:33:13 by Gatlin
Anti-Trump zealot, and progressive hatchet man Adam Schiff, the top-ranking Democrat investigating Trump-Russia collusion, was oddly quiet, weak, and muted over his examination of official intel information proving Obama spied on President Trump. Schiffs highly out of character reaction to the data was enough to make even the staunchest anti-Trumpers concede the documents are every bit as truthful and awful as Nunes said they are. In short, Schiff supported the validity of the information with his uncharacteristically weak response. Its been a bad week for Schiff; earlier he had to admit theres no evidence suggesting Trump and Russia ...

Freedom Caucus Isn’t Backing Down After Trump Threat

Conservatives say theyre up for any challenge from the right If President Donald Trumps intention was to intimidate House Freedom Caucus members with his assertion on Twitter that we must fight them in 2018, it didnt work.If somebody can get to the right of me in the primary, God bless him, Freedom Caucus member Trent Franks said.The Arizona Republican, who had learned about the presidents tweet from a reporter Thursday morning, provided a blunt response that captures the gist of the Freedom Caucus reaction to the threat, although several members didnt go as far as Franks in stating their thoughts.But the sentiment is ...
It’s on: White House social media director calls for primarying Freedom Caucus member Justin Amash
Post Date: 2017-04-01 15:02:14 by Tooconservative
Turns out when Trump tweeted early Thursday morning that we must fight the Freedom Caucus in 2018, that wasnt just idle time-wasting while he was sitting on the can. Interesting that Dan Scavino, Trumps official social-media guy, would zero in on Amash for threats instead of, say, Mark Meadows or Rand Paul, both of whom were more prominent critics of the failed House health-care bill. Amashs sin seems not to be that he helped take down TrumpCare but that hes been lippy about it. It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump. No shame, Mr. President. Almost everyone succumbs to the D.C. Establishment. https://t.co/9bDo8yzH7I ...

Drew Angerer/Getty Images Congressman Justin Amash of Michigan was speaking to the press about the GOPs Obamacare replacement in the speaker's lobby of the House of Representatives when, as Politico reported Friday afternoon, a sudden realization dawned on him.

Amash-Trump feud continues in wake of Obamacare loss
Post Date: 2017-03-31 03:19:32 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON A word of warning before President Donald Trump decides to go after U.S. Rep. Justin Amash next year: It's been tried before and it didn't work out too well.On Thursday morning, Trump, apparently still smarting from being forced last week to drop a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act in the face of conservative intransigence, went on Twitter to say his supporters "must fight" members of the so-called Freedom Caucus that opposed the bill, presumably drumming up opposition for them in next year's elections if they "don't get on the team & fast."That would include Amash, a Republican from Cascade Township, who was clear in his ...

Post Date: 2017-03-31 02:41:20 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON ― Within the Republican rat race to shift core principles and cozy up to the Trump administration, theres one Republican in the House who seems totally uninterested in running the maze. When Donald Trump proposed a year of jail or loss of citizenship for burning the flag, this congressman said no president should be allowed to burn the First Amendment.When Trump said only the media thinks his potential conflicts of interest are a big deal, he quote tweeted the president-elect to say that it was indeed a big deal, affixing Trumps hashtag, #draintheswamp.And when Trump indicated he would nominate Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to be attorney ...
Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., who is of Palestinian and Syrian descent, is the only Arab-American GOP lawmaker to fully opposed Trump’s travel ban.
Post Date: 2017-03-31 02:21:50 by Gatlin
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) was born in the United States, the son of a Palestinian refugee father and a Syrian immigrant mother. So perhaps its no surprise that he is one of the GOPs most outspoken critics of President Trumps immigration order. Ive had both of those aspects in my life the immigrant aspect and the refugee aspect, Amash said in an interview Wednesday on Capitol Hill. I believe its important that we remain a welcoming country, that people feel they have the opportunity to come here and start a new life. Amash is one of six lawmakers of Arab descent suddenly thrust into the spotlight thanks to a heated national ...

Post Date: 2017-03-31 02:00:10 by Gatlin
Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) hinted at a 2020 run during his speech at the Young Americans for Liberty National Convention. As one of the few libertarian Republicans in elected office, Amash is looking to continue the movement Ron Paul inspired. Amash is one of the few remaining left in the Never Trump movement and is actively looking to back someone besides the Republican nominee. Rare called him the most high profile libertarian Republican in Congress after Senator Rand Paul and one of the two congressmen who are generally considered the most beloved by the Ron Paul-inspired liberty movement.

The centrist Tuesday Group affirmed at a meeting Wednesday that it will not meet with the conservative House Freedom Caucus to negotiate changes to an ObamaCare replacement bill, according to Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.). I am not speaking for the White House; I'm not speaking for the Speaker; but I will speak for the Tuesday Group, Collins, a member of the group, told reporters.
