Justin Amash Defends His Record During Contentious Town Hall Meetings

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has never been afraid to meet his constituents face-to-face and discuss the hard issues, even with the political system as bitter and divided as it has ever been. Amash was happy to defend his positions during two town hall events last week, even on particularly contentious topics like military policy and his frequent clashes with President Trump. Amash received some flak from the audience for his ‘no’ vote against the “Make America Secure” Appropriations Act. Combined with his ‘no’ votes against Trump-backed immigration measures, this has caused many Republicans to question Amash’s motives. Nevertheless, Amash stands… Keep Reading

Trump Clashes With Pelosi Over “Clearly Unconstitutional” Russian Sanctions

Congress is dead set against making America great again, and they prove it time after time. Most recently, they overwhelmingly passed a bill to place sanctions on Russia and hamstring the President into complying with them against his better judgment. Although Trump signed the bill into law, he expressed his dismay through a signing statement. “While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in the statement. “In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions.”… Keep Reading

On Russia Sanctions, Only Three Republican Legislators Stand Courageously With Trump

When President Donald Trump complained recently about how few prominent Republicans had his back, he was not kidding. A recent House vote to tie up the President, undermine his foreign policy, and partially remove his discretion pertaining to Russia passed with only three GOP legislators objecting. Reps. Jimmy Duncan (R-TN), Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Justin Amash (R-MI) were the three lone “no” votes against a successful measure limiting Trump’s ability to remove sanctions on Russia that were approved by Congress. This maneuver may harm Trump’s ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia, and further jeopardize tenuous relations with the nation. Hiding… Keep Reading

Trump Announces New Iranian Sanctions That May Jeopardize Obama’s Nuclear Deal

The Trump administration has announced a new regime of sanctions against Iran to push back against their ballistic missile program. Critics believe these new sanctions may jeopardize the Iranian nuclear deal that was one of former President Obama’s signature accomplishments. “Even as we continue to work to prevent Iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon, we cannot look away while Iran threatens our country and our allies in ways beyond their nuclear threat,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said to reporters today. The sanctions will be aimed at 18 entities and people who the United States believes to be… Keep Reading

Paul, Lee Only Senators To Stand With Trump Administration On Russia Sanctions

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) were the only Senators in either party to support the Trump administration’s position on Russia sanctions on Wednesday. Although the White House has yet to take an official position on the bill, their displeasure with it is clear. It is said that the administration’s objection to the Senate bill was principally grounded in the fact it prevents the President negotiating any downgrade in sanctions without the approval of Congress. President Trump, who often emphasizes his negotiating skills, was no doubt disappointed about having this issue taken out of his hands. This was… Keep Reading

The Cuban Challenge For All Americans

If we are to open up relations with Cuba we must do so with the intent of bringing the information age to all Cubans. That means insisting the Internet be made available to all Cubans, just as it is available to the Castro elites, the Pope, and Mr. Obama who all want new formalized relations. Cuba is a museum of two profound failures: the complete failure of communism to improve the quality of life for all Cubans, despite all it stole on behalf of the poor; and the second miserable failure of the US embargo to end Castro’s anti-American  communism… Keep Reading
