GOP Defector Blasts Republican Party For Shielding Donald Trump | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

This guy – Amash – has a lot of heart. But somehow I hope he’s still connected with the Republicans – he needs to pull some of those DumbAsses out of their party – like yesterday..

Congressman Justin Amash officially breaking ties with the Republican party and filing as an independent. This comes as Rep. Amash attacks the GOP for privately discussing impeachment, while avoiding backing it in public.

  1. You are very good at cultural anthropology and history. Over time I hope to gain some insight on your knowledge in that area. Thanks for your support and sharing. Feel free to comment freely here at anytime your insight is a considerable contribution to this site, thanks for that! BTW.. I see NO OTHER Dem candidates giving Kamala a Black Eye/with bruises or a serious run for her money yet – but then again the MSM wouldn’t present it even if it was there. The MSM spends too much time talking about “what a disgrace The Trumpanzee is” and not enough time urging action against the Administrations Abuse of Power and Obstruction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ต Get ready for 4 more years of ‘Queen Sissy-DumbAss Doofus, the scumsucking bottomdwelling Liar-in chief, megalomaniacal, psychopathic sociopath๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿท’ unless the DemWits can pull a Rhino out of a thimble!!! LOL ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Thanks. I may be wrong, but I really think that he is driven by the fact that one parent is Syrian Christian and the other Palestinian Christian. They were always in that area and most don’t appreciate having to leave and can’t appreciate Trump’s Israel First policy. I suspect that a large part of his constituency is Palestinian, too. He may also want Pence in, who would appeal more to the religious right. No true Christian – conservative or not – can like Trump’s behavior. There’s a youtube channel fundamentalist preacher who says that Trump is the Anti-Christ. On the other hand, the Jewish people are very diverse in their opinions on Israel and their arrival in the United States – some (like the NYT founders) arrived prior to the American Revolution. Many Jewish Americans are in conflict with Israeli extremists over women’s right to pray with men, too. Middle Eastern Christians have been arriving since ca 1880s, I think.

    Point of comparison: the US was late getting into World War I because more recently arrived Irish Americans and German Americans didn’t want to get in the war. The Irish Americans didn’t want to fight for the British Crown, and the German Americans didn’t want to fight Germany. This (and being older) probably saved my grandfather’s life because by the time he was drafted and trained the war was over. For him it was good, but one can imagine a similar situation where it might be bad. As someone trained in social sciences and, more importantly, as the child of a social science professor (and theologian) who grew up and later studied and even taught on college campuses, I believe that culture and socialization are almost everything. My background in science and experience tell me that some genetic traits are inherited, as well – like talent in music or art and mental illness.

    I find it outrageous that people now pretend that having US citizenship automatically makes one American, and call those who say otherwise nasty names. Not only is it nonsense from a common sense perspective, but it is also nonsense from an Anthropological and Sociological perspective. Australia doesn’t allow people to be in government if their grandparents weren’t born in Australia because of the risk of dual citizenship and dual loyalties. I have also met people who don’t have US citizenship who love America more than those with US citizenship – love it as an ideal; love its people and culture.

    • To me it’s no longer about country, anthropology or honor: ..โ€œI find it outrageous that people now pretend that having US citizenship automatically makes one American, and call those who say otherwise nasty names.

I’m afraid that MORALITY will now have to be extracted from the American lexicon and ALL dictionaries going forward. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก

      • My point was that new immigrants will always feel strongly about their country one way or another. It’s also easy for them to return home, whereas we have no place to go. Pelosi can return to Italy tomorrow. She probably has an Italian passport and she can legally vote in Italy. She can live anywhere in Europe that she wants with the EU passport. Her family doesn’t even marry Americans. Trump may be eligible for British citizenship, and he doesn’t marry Americans. Both had mothers born in Europe. Holtec’s owner was born, raised and educated in India. By choosing immigrants you choose the future of the country. A lot of other things are about culture, too. Depravity is a culture, but it’s related to other things in culture like flashy clothes and religion. If you consider the history of slavery and Jim Crow, the US has always had serious ethical problems, with the possible exception of a tiny window in the 1970s.

        • Ethics are culturally defined. While people don’t necessarily live up to their ethical standards, it’s there and at least they may feel guilty. I don’t think it’s an accident that Murdoch (also a non-American) and Trump are Calvinists. You can’t compete with those who think they are reincarnated to be elites (Hindus like Kamala Harris and the head of Mittal Steel and probably Holtec’s Kris Singh) nor those who think they are predestined to be rich. The Bushes have Calvinists in them too. I think mother Bush was Presbyterian. You and I were raised in Wesleyan tradition of free will and helping the poor.

        • And this fuckin’ Nuclear Cartel of India, China, Russia and Israel has GOT TO GO!! NOW!!!! Diablo and San Onofre are BOTH at risk just because of ONE FUCKIN’ COMPANY.. HOLTEC!!!!!!! There are other minor players but HOLTEC is the 800lb Gorilla in THOSE ROOMS!

  3. He’s very tea party right wing and anti-environment. I think he’s motivated by being half Palestinian Christian, whereas Trump is deep in bed with the most extreme Israeli Zionism (i.e. Netanyahu, Russian-Israeli oligarchs and Sheldon Adelson).

    • That is a complex cross-pollination! At this late stage it doesn’t appear he has many sympathizers in the GOP? Which causes me to ask what is his endgame?
