Exclusive: Ben Swann Interviews US. Congressman Justin Amash



By: Ben Swann.com | 27 March 2014

Exclusive: Congressman Justin Amash, Why The GOP is So Afraid Of Him and How Corporate Money and PACs Control Washington

Ben Swann.com Excerpt: “He is only a second term Congressman and yet Rep. Justin Amash from Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District has made a lot of waves.  The waves he has made however, are not in the form of theatrics or creating a sideshow of himself.  Rather, Amash has made a name for himself as being one of the rare members of Congress who votes only to uphold and protect the Constitution rather than down party lines.

The 32 year-old attorney says he works every day to represent his entire constituency rather than just a small portion of primary voters. It is likely for that reason that Amash has risen to the top of the GOP hit list.  Republican insiders such as Karl Rove have called Amash “the most liberal Republican”.  Meanwhile, a coalition of business owners and special interest groups are backing a primary challenge to Amash, hoping to defeat him this spring.

Ben Swann spoke with Amash for a half hour on the Ben Swann Radio Show, Wednesday about the challenge he is facing in the primary and why Republican establishment is so afraid of him.  Rep. Amash also talked about the challenges of a political system that is for sale to special interest groups and lobbying firms.Read more here: Ben Swann.com

APOTHEOSIS OF WASHINGTON



Liberty-Pac: Apotheosis Of Washington  a fascinating piece of art work located in the eye of the US. Capitol rotunda. The painting depicts Washington rising to the heavens in glory and surrounded by Mythical Gods and Goddesses. By: Constantino Brumidi in ( 1865 ) NOTE: (The word "apotheosis" in the title means literally the raising of a person to the rank of a god, or the glorification of a person as an ideal; George Washington was honored as a national icon in the nineteenth century.)

kids.clerk.house.gov Quote: “Constantino Brumidi painted The Apotheosis of Washington on the ceiling of the Rotunda, the center of the Capitol, in 1865. He used a fresco technique in which water-based paints are applied to freshly spread plaster.

The subjects shown in the dome mix individuals from American history, gods of Roman mythology and personifications—abstract concepts illustrated as a person. This mixture of history and myth was a common way to show abstract ideas in art in the 19th century, and would have been easily grasped by viewers at the time.

The center of the painting shows George Washington rising into the heavens in glory. Female personifications of Liberty and Victory or Fame are at his sides. Thirteen maidens, symbolizing the thirteen original states, circle the three central figures. The groups around the perimeter of the main scene illustrate important aspects of America, and tell the viewer what the nation prided itself in during the 19th century. Innovation and industry are important recurring themes.” End Quote
