Rep. Amash: Trump's 'fear mongering' is 'irresponsible and dangerous'

A West Michigan congressman with a history of questioning President Donald Trump used strong language in tweets criticizing Trump's response to an unfavorable court ruling this weekend.

Examples of the 'independent voice' that U.S. Rep. Justin Amash plans to continue using to question the president-elect and his administration.

The court decisions, which came just two weeks into Trump's presidency, struck down a controversial travel ban that has spawned protests across the country since Trump signed the executive order on Jan. 27.

U.S. District Judge James Robart on Friday, Feb. 3, issued a temporary restraining order that prevents enforcement of the president's order banning refugee arrivals for 120 days, visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days and Syrian citizens indefinitely. A U.S. appeals court later denied the federal government's request for an immediate stay of the ruling.

The rulings prompted a storm of tweets from Trump's account, which included one calling Robart a "so-called judge" and another postulating that "many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country" as a result of the ban being lifted.

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Cascade Township, added his two cents on Super Bowl Sunday in two tweets on the issue.

Amash said Trump should not have attacked Robart's legitimacy and that his "constant fear mongering" is both "irresponsible and dangerous."

Amash, himself the son of a Syrian immigrant, has come out in opposition to the travel ban, calling it "not lawful" and "extreme."

Amash called the ban "unlawful" and "extreme."

The Michigan Republican has a reputation for criticizing those with which he disagrees, among whom are sometimes whoever is in the White House and members of his own political party.

After Trump's election, Amash promised to extend that critical voice past the transition to a new presidential administration.

Though he has found items on which he agrees with President Trump --like the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court -- Amash has openly criticized the travel ban, Trump's executive order on border security and even called attention to the back-and-forth between Trump and U.S. Rep. John Lewis.

Amash also crossed party lines to join eight other House Republicans in voting against a budget resolution that included a first step toward repealing the Affordable Care Act, known commonly as Obamacare. Though the congressman has been a long opponent of the sweeping healthcare legislation signed into law by former President Barack Obama, Amash said he could not support the spending plan itself.

Amash initially endorsed Sen. Rand Paul, shifting his support to Sen. Ted Cruz when Paul dropped out of the race shortly after the Iowa Caucus.

Unlike many of his fellow Republicans, who endorsed Trump when it became clear he would be the GOP nominee, Amash never formally gave the candidate his support. In fact, he said he would neither vote for Trump nor Clinton.

Amash, first elected to his seat in 2010, easily won reelection to a fourth term in Congress last November.

Michigan's 3rd congressional district, which he represents, stretches from Albion to Sand Lake and includes all or portions of Barry, Calhoun, Ionia, Kent and Montcalm counties.

Trump has vowed that he will reinstate the travel ban lifted by the federal judge's ruling on Friday. The restrictions on immigration are needed, he says, to protect the United States from Islamist militants.

The executive order will remain in limbo -- potentially opening a window for those impacted by the ban to travel to the United States -- until the federal appeals court rules on the government's request for an emergency stay of Robart's ruling.

Amazing Pro-Immgration Super Bowl Ad From 84 Lumber. Gutsy

Many people like myself saw this a clear slam against Trump's plan to build "A Wall" it may or not be seen as support of illegal immigrants.

On its Facebook page this morning, 84 Lumber has been actively replying to customers accusing it of supporting illegal immigration with the following message:

"We do not condone illegal immigration. The journey of the mother and daughter symbolizes grit, dedication and sacrifice. Characteristics that we look for in our people at 84 Lumber. President Trump has previously said there should be a 'big beautiful door in the wall so that people can come into this country legally.' We couldn’t agree more."

I, also agree, America is a land of immigrates.  I myself is only 3rd generation American, 8 of 9 of my great-grandparents were all immigrates from Europe, with one being French Canadian and Native American. This ad should help send the message to Trump of no walls and no bans!

A Nice Cum Shot

Senate Democrats Launch 24-Hour, All-Night Protest of Anti-LGBT Education Nominee Betsy DeVos

From: Towleroad
Senate Democrats announced they are holding the floor for the 24 hours before a final confirmation vote on Betsy DeVos. They need just one more Republican to join them to block DeVos’s nomination.

The Hill reports:

“Democrats will hold the floor for the next 24 hours, until the final vote, to do everything we can to persuade just one more Republican to join us,” Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said from the Senate floor Monday.
Unless Democrats agree to yield back some debate time, a final vote on DeVos is expected for noon Tuesday, when Vice President Mike Pence will likely need to break a 50-50 tie.
A spokesman for Murray confirmed that “Democrats plan to keep the floor open and there will be speeches over the night in this final push.”

Republicans advanced DeVos’s nomination in a 6:30 am vote on Friday.

DeVos, who plagiarized answers to questions from senators regarding her viewpoints, has a terrible record for LGBT people.

Writes Lambda Legal:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students contact Lambda Legal every day to seek help being safe at school.  We need a Secretary of Education who will make schools safe for all students, and who won’t tolerate bullying – by peers, parents, or school administrators. What we know so far about Betsy DeVos’s record concerns us. She has supported Focus on the Family, which opposes marriage equality, and her family foundation has funded a group that advances the dangerous practice of so-called ‘conversion therapy.’ Her advocacy for privatizing public education could eject students – LGBT or not – from the protection of federal laws.  A complete confirmation process for Betsy DeVos is necessary in order to fully investigate whether she supports equal rights for LGBT students.

Writes Politico:

Under the Obama administration, the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights has aggressively policed civil rights issues — such as cracking down on colleges that mishandle sexual assault cases, and urging schools to extend anti-bullying policies to cover LGBT students. During the election, the Trump campaign was critical of the civil rights office, with some Trump surrogates questioning its very existence. DeVos has said little about such issues, but civil rights advocates have said they’re “deeply concerned” that she might seek to rein in the office’s enforcement efforts. They note the DeVos family has a long history of supporting anti-gay causes — including donating hundreds of thousands to groups that push “conversion therapy” — raising questions about how DeVos would address discrimination against gay and transgender students. Democrats and advocacy groups are also concerned about donations that DeVos’ foundation made to another group, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which has pushed to raise the standard of evidence in sexual assault cases on college campuses. Ed Patru, a spokesman for a group of DeVos supporters, said she sees private school vouchers and charter schools as a civil rights issue. “In hundreds of communities of color, kids aren’t being taught the skills they need to succeed in college or find the kinds of jobs that pay enough to escape poverty, and Betsy believes that is an alarming civil rights crisis,” Patru said.

She also believes guns should be allowed in schools…to prevent grizzly bear attacks.
