GOP Rep. Calls Justin Amash ‘Al Qaeda’s Best Friend in Congress’

Representative Justin Amash’s (R-MI) unorthodox votes are beginning to cost him: the GOP establishment, emboldened by recent primary wins like Thom Tillis’ in North Carolina, has targeted Amash with a primary challenger, and fellow Michigan Republicans are not rushing to his side. But it was his colleague Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who got the money quote in Thursday morning’s POLITICO piece on Amash’s reelection fight.

“He’s been leading the charge and not telling the truth about [NSA surveillance policies],” Nunes said. “He’s been fanning the flames, and it gets to the point where my assessment is this is a guy willing to work with San Francisco Democrats to protect bait fish, and at the same time he’s Al Qaeda’s best friend in the Congress.”

Amash was not amused. “I vote less often with Nancy Pelosi, the real San Francisco Democrat, than any member of Congress,” he told POLITICO. “I opposed Nunes’ water bill on constitutional grounds, and his comments are unbecoming of a representative.”

The filthy

scumbags are all piling on right now from both parties. The demoncrats smell blood in the water from the stab wounds in his back. If he's ousted we might as well give up. This is the kind of shit that was happening to Dr. Paul as well....he got redistricted right before he left and that would have been a very tough fight. The Republicans don't want change, they want moderate policies and war.

We need to donate, have a money bomb. Where is our organization, where are OUR troops? We are leaving a man alone to fight an army by himself. This is a far easier and less dangerous fight than going to the bundy ranch! Let's do this and spit in their faces!

I could not agree more. If this was Ron Paul in trouble, everyone and his momma would be here donating, and this would be top of the front page.

"Me thinks the lady protest too much..."

Nune either knows, Al CIAda is yet another treasonous / unconstitutional endeavor or he is willfully ignorant. If he knows, he is on the take or is compromised and if doesn't he is stupid. In any case the existence of the CIA is unlawful.




Bump again.

Amash is the best damn congressman in the House. What a bold faced, lying P.O.S!!!

Although the majority of

Although the majority of Americans might possibly be considered morons, these selected wacko neo-conservatives in the GOP must be replaced in due time. We'll see if Justin can weather the ludicrous accusations of fascists in the US government. Let's hope that the average voter in Justin's district is smarter than the average American who approves of Obama's performance by 47% ...

Wasn't it John McCain

That was taking pictures with a Syrian rebel that ate a Syrian soldier's heart out of his body?

This clown seems confused.

McCain and Graham are Al Qaeda’s best friends.

Don't forget Hillary


No wonder people dislike republicans

with xenophobes like Nunes. The guy is clearly a mental case since he's an immigrant like the rest of us..

I'll be making another donation to the honorable Justin Amash..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

it is a lie to say Americans outnumber fascists in this country

It takes fascists and communists to vote for fascists and communists, so let’s stop forgetting who they are in conversation and start calling them out one by one. Statistics are for communists, Objectivity is for communists, facts are for communists… define self evidence? Distinguish truths from facts? Oh wait you can’t.. can you define any of the articles of confederation? Do you know what a Republic is?
..No wonder you keep to yourself about politics you are scared of the truth, you understand nothing subjectively so why are you acting like you know everything objectively? Are you an actor? Do you get paid for this? What is your purpose?

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Ouch they really must not

Ouch they really must not like that guy.
That is good though.

The hatred of liberty that oozes from fascist red teamers like Nunes and, especially Rogers is nauseating. Amash isn't perfect but I respect him.
