While Republicans everywhere were cheering and pounding brews following Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court last week, the Queen of the Never Trumpers – Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) – was whining alongside the liberals.
The former Ron Paul revolutionary turned sniveling Jeff Flake Republican took to Twitter to whine following Kavanaugh’s confirmation. The Republican establishment actually found its backbone and stood up for due process against a leftist witch hunt that would have shocked George Orwell himself, but the self-centered Amash is crying about being overshadowed.
The GOP Establishment has been more powerful and more dominant in the 115th Congress than at any time in modern history.

Amash wasn’t done whining with that tweet. He went onto cry about how liberty is losing in the Republican Party. Perhaps it wouldn’t be losing if the liberty advocates in the GOP like Amash were actually effective.
The GOP Establishment has been “effective” over the past two years. Government has grown. Liberty has lost. Put the Dem Establishment in charge and you’ll get the same. Time for something new. https://t.co/y0jNAoWTgt

Amash was joined by his colleague, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) who also whined throughout the day of Kavanaugh’s successful confirmation.
Truth. If there’s any doubt, look at spending increases across the board. https://t.co/5u6UmxC8xb

Tribalism is making heroes out of some very mediocre individuals. Can we be done soon?

The fact that both of these men were morose and depressed as the Republicans gained a massive victory over the Democrats with implications for November’s mid-term elections should be eye-opening about their intentions. Kavanaugh’s judicial record is far from spotless, but his confirmation was a thunderous win against communist terrorist mobs hoping to hold Congress hostage for their far-left extremist agenda.
Rand Paul, the Senate’s premier liberty defender, gets the importance of the fight and cast his vote for Kavanaugh accordingly.
“Having looked at the totality of Brett Kavanaugh’s life and career, I am persuaded to vote for him today. The preponderance of evidence from hundreds of people who knew him and worked with him indicates he is a good man with a good reputation for integrity and character. Judge Kavanaugh is qualified, he has been vetted, and he should be confirmed,” Paul said.
He brought down the house during a speech at a Kentucky Trump rally last night:
Amash and Massie should look at what Paul is doing as an example for their work in the House. Paul has forged a close relationship with President Trump and is influencing his policies on healthcare, foreign policy and other key issues through his access to 45. Massie and Amash can do the same or become totally irrelevant in Trump’s GOP.
