Amash Mulling Presidential Bid

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) is mulling a presidential run, according to a report by CNN. “He has been discussing the potential campaign with his family, his friends, his team, and others, and a decision can be expected soon,” the Amash campaign stated. By emerging as a vocal opponent of the President, the renegade Congressman has broken with other libertarian politicians such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and former Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), who chose to work closely with the Trump administration. Formerly a prominent member of the 2010 Tea Party wave, Amash left the Republican Party in July 2019,… Keep Reading

Renegade Party: A New Home For Conservative Rebels?

After being blasted on Breitbart as a “Republican spoiler” and “renegade Jew” for refusing to support GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, founder and editor of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, is firing back. Taking in stride the comments from the Trump-adoring media outlet, Kristol recently purchased the web domain www.RenegadeParty.com and created the twitter account @RenegadeParty. I've bought https://t.co/xKmuMgr8Eh. Redirects (for now) to https://t.co/Np2BpY3HMA. Ducks all in a row. All that's needed now: a candidate. — Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 17, 2016   https://twitter.com/RenegadeParty/status/732676451376365568 Since the rise of Trump, voices on the right have been advocating for a true conservative to… Keep Reading
