HAMAS’ Fave Tea Partier: Palestinian GOP Congressman Votes w/ Islamic Terrorists

By Debbie Schlussel

Guess which Tea Party star voted with HAMAS (and Dennis Kucinich) recently?

No, not Ron Paul.  Yes, he voted with HAMAS, too.  But it was Justin Amash, the Palestinian Western Michigan Congressman, darling of the Tea Party and a supposed conservative.  He voted to continue U.S. payments of billions of dollars to the Palestinian Authority and declined to condemn a HAMAS Palestinian state that won’t recognize Israel. Read the text of House Resolution 268, which he opposed.


Congressman Justin Amash: The GOP’s/Tea Party’s HAMASnik

It’s doubly disgusting considering a report that Palestinian Media Watch’s Itamar Marcus delivered today to Republican Congressmen on Capitol Hill, detailing how $5 million a month in U.S. funds goes directly to pay salaries to jailed HAMAS terrorists.  Not that this is news.  We knew all along that much of the money we pay to these scumbags is going for no good purposes.

I warned you about Amash around election time.  He ran on the premise of a Palestinian state connecting Gaza and the so-called West Bank dividing Israel through the further usurpation of more Israeli land.  And, since he’s been elected, he voted to restore Planned Parenthood and National Palestinian Radio (NPR) money to the budget.  That’s what the Tea Party stands for?  Cash to fund abortions and pan-Muslim crap on the radio?  It is, in Amash’s mind and his many blind-faith Tea Partiers.

Now, Amash has taken to voting with HAMAS on House Resolution 268, which calls for an end to U.S. tax dollars to the Palestinian Authority, so long as it is entangled with HAMAS, and opposes recognition of a HAMAS Palestinian state.

Amash’s vote stands out because even the most vitriolic anti-Semites and HAMASniks in Congress abstained by voting,  “Present,” or not voting at all.  Heck, some, like John Dingell, John Conyers, and Jihad Darrell Issa, voted for the resolution.  Those voting present included Israel-haters Lynn Woolsey, Jim Moran, and Jim McDermott and Muslims Keith Ellison and Andre Carson. But Amash had to outdo them all and voted “no” in unison with Ron Paul, Hezbollah fan Nick Joe Rahall, Dennis Kucinich, Oregon Granola Nut Democrat Earl Blumenaur, and PaulNut Republican Congressman Walter B. Jones.

Writes one of Amash’s constituents in the Third District of Michigan:

I’m afraid that Justin Amash (R) MI-3 prefers to represent Palestinian Arabs instead of citizens from Michigan’s 3rd District.

Indeed.  Funny how Ron Paul and Justin Amash, who claim to embrace isolationism and don’t think the U.S. should be involved in foreign policy and foreign funding, oppose stopping American taxpayer funds going to HAMAS.

Whenever I note the problem of Tea Partiers’ warm embrace of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic nuts, like Paul and Jim Traficant, I get nothing but blind faith defensiveness from them.  And the same goes for Amash, the friend of HAMAS and Palestinian whom Tea Partiers put in office as a Republican Congressman from Michigan.

I don’t just blame the Tea Partiers for Amash.  I also blame the self-proclaimed pro-Israel Jews from AIPAC.  Pro-Israel and Jewish residents of Amash’s district repeatedly contacted the AIPAC crowd in Michigan and nationally, asking for help for Amash’s pro-Israel, down-the-line-conservative primary opponent, Bill Hardiman, in the solidly Republican seat.  They declined, despite Amash’s open call for splitting Israel up and his known Palestinian sympathies and background.  Now, he’s solidly entrenched, and it will take a lot to ever get him out.

Thanks, Tea Party and AIPAC, for bringing us HAMAS’ new favorite Republican.

Debbie, I remember you wrote an article about Mr. Amash back a few months ago. I also remember you claiming that the Tea Partiers who embraced him wasn’t exactly aware where he stands politically. I can ask you why the TPM wasn’t aware of Amash’s politics, but I know the answer, “Grover Norquist”! DS, I know and remember you wrote some columns on this blog about Mr. Norquist, on how he has ties to islamic terrorist groups overseas, etc. (which is a fact BTW), and some to most idiotic conservatives who are apart of the TPM either is unaware of Norquist or doesn’t want to know exactly who Grover Norquist is!

This fool is a Republican?

Well, since I have no use for Republicans (they are weak as water) I am not shocked.

But one of these days, I would like to see Republican equal a TRUE Conservative!!

But as someone who has never been an R (I’m Independent), I will not be one soon with so-called Republicans voting for HAMAS funding, Planned Parenthood and NPR funding.

Who needs a Democrat party with these RINOS (and HAMAS lovers!!) around?

Skunky on July 26, 2011 at 8:14 pm

Idiot infidel voters vote for the guy so they aren’t judged as islamophobes and because he “looks” professional and non-radical. joke’s on you, people.

DS_ROCKS! on July 26, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Skunky, speaking of Planned Parenthood, I have a “jpg” picture of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sangor, we all know she claimed that she wanted to see all black people (like myself) eradicated from civilization. So here’s a picture of Ms. Sangor:

I’d say unbelievable but as you predicted, this is no surprise! I cannot believe we have so many idiots allowed to vote and choose these people!

Nora on July 26, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Why do you hate Ron Paul so much?

ViddyWell on July 26, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Because you’d have to be a clown to vote for him.. Looks like you are a Paulbot supporter, I see…

    RalphFromMI on December 26, 2011 at 5:39 pm

Thank you for writing this column, Debbie. I appreciate it.

    Del’Abate, you are everything that is wrong with this world.

This is what someone wrote on Facebook after reading Debbie’s article:
“Justin is way more an ally than you give him credit for. … He is a very staunch Constitutionalist. He is very conservative. He strongly opposes Big Government. All of his votes and decisions are anchored in the Constitution and he explains every vote he casts in detail.

I watched his campaign very closely here and I don’t recall the “dividing Israel” issue coming up. DO you have a link for that one?

I know that he opposed the bills that defunded Planned Parenthood and NPR, but it was because those bills were improperly written; it’s unconstitutional for Congress to pass a law that approves funding for a given activity but singles out a named entity for exclusion. That is called a “Bill of Attainder” which is illegal and Justin is correct. Justin is strong Pro-Life, is opposed to abortion and is opposed to taxpayer funded public radio and offered amendments to these bills that would ban that funding completely across the board. He believes there should be NO government funding for any of that! His amendments were summarily rejected.

We have to drill down to check out the back story on this blogger’s charge, but Amash really is one of the few good guys in Congress right now.”

And this is how I responded:
“I’ve had problems with some of Debbie Schlussel’s ability to slant and embellish her articles. I finally unliked her page due to her oft-questionable commentary and her biases.”

I would suggest that everyone do their own research before taking Debbie’s word as gospel!

This is what you will find on Justin Amash’s Facebook page/Wall: https://www.facebook.com/#!/repjustinamash

“I will vote “present” on legislation in three circumstances:

(1) when I could otherwise support the legislation, but the legislation uses improper (e.g., unconstitutional) means to achieve its ends. This situation often arises when legislation is drafted in such a way that the law does not apply equally to persons or entities that are doing the same thing;

(2) when Representatives have not been given a reasonable amount of time to consider the legislation; or

(3) when I have a conflict of interest, such as a personal or financial interest in the legislation—a circumstance that hasn’t happened yet and I don’t anticipate happening.”

M: Get a frickin’ clue. He voted NO, Not “Present.” And his “reasons” for voting present are irrelevant to his idiocy and scumbaggery in his votes. WAKE UP. You are everything that’s wrong with the Tea Party and no different than an Obamabot (except they’ve woken up and far smarter and more principled than you). You support a man who is in bed with HAMAS. You are an idiot.

Patriot Mary on July 27, 2011 at 9:05 am

Don’t trust tea baggers.

RT on July 27, 2011 at 9:09 am

good post. Thanks Debbie. I never did like Ron Paul or the tea bag crowd.

What’s your opinion on the Norwegian murderer, and all the hype on the left and right? I’m surprised you havn’t written about it.

ELLIZ on July 27, 2011 at 9:35 am

Hey Al-Quds you POS, take your anti-semitic and islamist garbage on a al-jazzera website you scumbag. Your nothing but a damn friggin asshole you moron, you come over here to Ms. Schlussel’s blog and you do all sorts of spamming and assasinate DS’s character, from there you do some old fashion anti-semitism against DS because she’s a jewish woman. Then from there you mention some of us the regulars on this blog, you POS, the R in my screen name is the initial for my last name you friggin dumbass! And what Debbie does in her own personal life is NONE of your business or anybody elses business jackass. When DS takes a look at this thread, she’s going to delete your hateful comments about her and some of us the regulars on this site and from there she’ll more likely ban your ass from this blog. And you think your being a wise guy and think your telling the truth right, whereas your talking out of your stupid ass and making up all sorts of stories about DS, now get lost and DON’T you dare comment on this blog EVER again. Another thing Al Quds, your one of the reasons why this country has to cutback on muslim immigration, because we know what you nutcases are capable of doing!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on July 27, 2011 at 11:49 am

I am offended that Al-Quds omitted me from his tirade.

That said, it’s always nice to see another Muslim acting like a Muslim. I mean, if you practice the “religion” of Satan, of course you will tend to sound like our own Al-Quds.

skzion on July 27, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Skzion, it won’t surprise me if this Al-Quds jackass is stalking DS either on cyberspace and making up all sorts of lies about her and taking her words out of context, or this Al-Quds thing is probably stalking Debbie in real life away from his/its computer? Either way, if this thing keeps this garbage up, DS can report this muslim wingnut to the local grievances for stalking her, defaming her reputation, etc. And the grievances will take Debbies side, because she knows what she’s talking about and does alot of investigative research.

    As for you Al-Quds, my advise to you is that you NEVER log onto this blog EVER again in your sad, pathetic life you f**king jackass. And I also bet that your family and relatives are sick and tired of you that they only want to see you and talk to you for “Ramadan”, Thanksgiving, and Christmas because the poor folks know what a joke of human being you really are Al-Quds. If that’s the case, I don’t blame your family and relatives distancing themselves from a nutjob zealot like you Al-Quds.

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    SR: Very astute. Yes, that Al-Quds nutjob is a Black Muslim from the mosque that was raided by the FBI for knowingly receiving and planning to sell stolen goods. I have blocked him, banned him, etc. But he continues to stalk me and readers. If this doesn’t stop soon, I will have law enforcement take over. None of what he wrote is true. DS

    Sean R. on July 27, 2011 at 1:22 pm

It NEVER ceases to amaze me to hear the evil filth coming out of the mouths of muslims… Why I am surprised I do not know, they are following the devil incarnate as it is, but sometimes I do still find it shocking. Let’s all buy stock in Smith & Wesson and Glock!!!

CJ on July 27, 2011 at 12:45 pm

What a travesty. They are infiltrating every institution we have under our nose and we look with indifference. Wake up America, Wake up.

G. R. SCHAROUBIM on July 27, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Sean R and Debbie,

Let this muscum post till the cows come home, for everytime he writes his jihadist rants, it gives everyone a plain as day look into the muscum mindset. Anyone who supports or defends hamas or hezzbollah is a traitor, Norquist needs to be purged from the republican party before that traitor does any more damage.

Drakken on July 27, 2011 at 4:59 pm

The following is Ron Paul’s principled explanation (and I assume Justin Amash’s explanation also) as to why he voted against H.R. 268. This is another reminder that Ron Paul does not stand for the status quo unlike other politicians and presidential candidates:

Ron Paul’s statement on H Res 268, Reaffirming the United States commitment to a negotiated settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations

Ron Paul: “Mr. Speaker I rise in opposition to this resolution. While I certainly share the hope for peace in the Middle East and a solution to the ongoing conflict, I do not believe that peace will result if we continue to do the same things while hoping for different results. The US has been involved in this process for decades, spending billions of dollars we do not have, yet we never seem to get much closer to a solution. I believe the best solution is to embrace non-interventionism, which allows those most directly involved to solve their own problems.

This resolution not only further entangles the US in the Israeli/Palestinian dispute, but it sets out the kind of outcome the United States would accept in advance. While I prefer our disengagement from that conflict, I must wonder how the US expects to be seen as an “honest broker” when it dictates the terms of a solution in such a transparently one-sided manner?

In the resolution before us, all demands are made of only one side in the conflict. Do supporters of this resolution really believe the actors in the Middle East and the rest of the world do not notice? We do no favors to the Israelis or to the Palestinians when we involve ourselves in such a manner and block any negotiations that may take place without US participation. They have the incentives to find a way to live in peace and we must allow them to find that solution on their own. As always, congressional attitudes toward the peace process in the Middle East reveal hubris and self-importance. Only those who must live together in the Middle East can craft a lasting peace between Israel and Palestine.”

ramjordan on July 27, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    ramjordan, no offense, but could you just find a blimp and go up with it?

    skzion on July 27, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Yes … your ideology and old school bigotry is certainly why the world has left you behind. This blatant racist seed which flows within your evil afflicting little mind, is surely the root of your nemesis to be, always evil and vindictive. Your minorities of kind are never the seekers nor idealists to path a road for peace, yours is the core reason peace will never exist. The walls are slowly closing in upon your unintelligent insecure worthless kind.

Gary Dean on July 28, 2011 at 1:19 am

You remind everyone what kind of muddled and wishful thinking you idealist on the left so embrace. You leftist who beat their plowshares into plows, always ends up pulling the plow for those who don’t.

Drakken on July 28, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Do not forget what TEA stands for.
Taxed Enough Already.
Many factions are part of the TEA party.
I never joined because of this fact.
Democrats, Independents, and Republicans banded together to fight this Big Spender in Washington, D. C. and all his cronies. That is all the TEA party is. A group of unlike minded citizens. Which is ok by me, just don’t forget who they are.

Jumbie on July 28, 2011 at 6:27 pm

To what extend Justin is “Tea Party” depends on your perspective. He is actually more Libertarian, and most of his support actually comes from “We are change” types, and Ron Paul-Adam Kokesh devotees. I have not donated money to his campaign, but I do follow his feeds on Facebook, because he discusses each vote. If you are saying that he is lying on the Facebook posts about his votes, I would like to see that. I know is the grandson of a Palestinian. I also know that Ford and the UAW types are very pro-Muslim. Given the composition and population of western MI, it was inevitable that the region would elect a person of Middle East decent. It would be better to have a person who is at least American in cultural roots than one who is an outright Arab Terrorist.

There is lies the problem; it isn’t so much this Congressman, but a population in which a pro-Palestinian can be elected. The real issue that has to be addressed is changing that population. Perhaps Terry Jones’ efforts will begin to bear fruit.
