    Cruz is going on and on about criminal illegals but we need to be concerned most with protecting the Republican electorate. And the threat to that are the (tens of) millions of illegals who would all vote Democrat if given legal status and eventually citizenship.

    About the Franken questioning Sessions on the “CNN Bombshell” that Russia had compromising info on Trump:

    Apparently, its origins are from the Never-Trumpers, Rick Wilson et all, and was leaked to Buzzfeed and then CNN.

    Sigh, Sessions concedes that current law grants birthright citizenship when it doesn’t. No law was ever passed granting birthright citizenship. Very disappointing.

      What I heard Sessions say is that Congress might be able to change the basis of citizenship, but he hadn’t studied the origin of the policy in depth and didn’t know what Congress could do. He didn’t have authority to change the policy. In effect he said “no comment” on the matter.

    • Anchor babies are not citizens, the US Constitution spells out in plain english “born on US soil & of citizen parents”. The birthright citizenship clause within the 14th Amendment is unconstitutional & therefore illegal.
      The terms “natural born” & “native” are used interchangeably in the US Constitution, both describe children born on US soil & of US citizen parents & the only birthright citizenship conveyed by the US Constitution.

    • A miracle! He said he was hit by the side of the truck and instead of flying straight forward (which would’ve killed him) he went to the side, flew about 30 feet. He said he shot his entire clip at the terrorist but is not sure if he killed him or if the other brave men firing at the terrorist did. He has kids and thanking God for saving his life. Says he has some bruises and pain that hurts a lot but that is okay and alive and did not suffer terrible injury.

        There are many Russian Oligarchs who left Russia or are on the wrong side of Putin. I wonder if they are fabricating and do not want to see US having closer relationship with Russia…?
        This also might be payback from the black hat CIA for Trump not blindley accepting what they say. This whole Russian thing smacks from Ukraine McCain CIA set up. They are setting Trump up with a bogus story. God help us we sold the countries soul to the devil.
        Pray to keep Trump safe.

    Franken is bloviating again. Sessions looks like he’d like to smack him. Franken is whining on about the Somali’s who were “frightened” by Trump’s election. You know, the Somali’s are all such wonderful people, and they’re assimilating just perfectly. Sessions handled the propaganda attack very diplomatically.

      Most residents of Somalia are Muslims, the majority belonging to the Sunni branch of Islam and the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence, although some are adherents of the Shia Muslim denomination. Sufism, the mystical dimension of Islam, is also well-established, with many local jama’a (zawiya) or congregations of the various tariiqa or Sufi orders.

      Those 80,000 Somalis are a real sore point for me (indeed for most if not all of us). Trump lost MN by roughly 45,000 votes. If those Somalis were back in Africa where they belong Trump would’ve won MN. Wasn’t it Lutheran and Catholic charities that brought them to the US? I’m sure those churches do help people with their charitable work, but it is INSANE that they can bring unvetted Islamic/Muslim people from parts of the world connected to Islamic terror. My niece is a nurse at Mayo Clinic and she’s not allowed to go anywhere by herself because it’s too dangerous and those Somali refugees are a big reason. Dang this makes me so angry. Immigration was the #1 reason why I voted for Trump. And I will not let my cold anger fade away. I’ve lost friends on FB over my proTrump posts and Sundance’s posts….which is their problem not mine. I’m never letting my guard down and I will do my part to help Trump. Grrrrrrrr….get em outta here and keep their burkas and turbans

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not remember O’s picks for AG, Holder and Lynch, sitting for this long through this type of grilling. The GOP were much more gracious in 2009 with Holder, and Lynch didn’t answer hardly any questions, and yet, she was put through easily.

      Of course they were. Senate Republicans are a bunch of GOPe UniParty members with limited exception. They believe, as articulated by John McCain, that a president should get the nominees he wants, so they don’t stand against anybody. Plus, they would never deny a black president, let alone a black president’s black nominee, because they would be called racist and they are far too worried about being called racist than doing what’s right for the country.

    All of these committees need to enact a rule for their hearings. A Senator or Representative must ask a question during their alloted time. They should be limited to a one minute limit in which to ask the question. If they do not ask a question within one minute, the rest of their alloted time should be forfeited. I’m growing very tired of listening to multiple Senators or Representatives making a totally partisan campaign speech in lieu of asking a pertinent question under the guise of “investigating” something with which the committee (or sub committee) has been charged to investigate. It is disingenuous and a humongous waste of Congressional time and taxpayer monies.

      The Constitution allows each each body to make their own rules. You’re going to have to run for a seat, or get cozy with one who does, and get them to change the Rules.

      Oh, and the rules are supposed to only be changed at the beginning of each “congress” i.e. Every two years. Of course, Hairy Reid, blew that rule up.

    Personally, I would like to see Congress be a part-time gig as it was originally intended.
    They are only in session 3 days most weeks, and are expected to “phone for donations” roughly a third of that time, for the party.

    There would be less laws, which means more freedom.
