    It is quite possible that MSM will be so busy trying to deal with the blows coming their way from the new surveillance info coming out today, that they might actually ignore Gorsuch, and allow him to squeak through.

      In case you haven’t heard, Jerome Corsi put the evidence into POTUS hands last week, and broke the info last night. They have been spying on Trump for 10 years, his whole family, all of his properties, and the people he comes in contact with. http://wp.me/p7kZHT-oT

        I had a feeling President Trump was holding back the evidence until the right time.

        If we thought Maddow’s epic fail was fun, this week should be even more fun.

        Sorry, but I still don’t hold too much faith in InfoWars. There have been some things they have had right, but when they did, it was always when other people had it just before or after they did. But in this case, no other source is touching this and the proof doesn’t seem to materialize and neither does a lot of things they cover.

        Also, I can’t stand going to their site — there is now a Topless Alex Jones on the front page… no thank you.

          It was actually Jerome Corsi from WND, Sheriff Joe, and a bunch of other people that combined the whistleblower info. Infowars allowed them to come on their show, but it wasn’t their research.

            I think It helps to read Klayman’s history of the chain of evidence. Where it came from, what it is, who stole it, why they stole it, and how they were stiff-armed for years by all these politicos and judges, whose jaws would invariably drop, getting us to this point. I tend to believe that this evidence or rumors of its existence were central to the entire Trump candidacy.

              Wolfmoon,
              This angers me to no end. These politicians have known about this illegal wiretapping for years, and yet they stand in front of cameras and say it simply isn’t so to the American people.

              Only a few good journalists will put a light on this, but unfortunately it will be a he said, she said argument. The left will believe the lies and stomp their feet we are making all of this up. Nothing will ever be done, not the way it should be done anyways.

              I am so sick of these lying politicians and the alphabet soup. They’re too busy covering everything up and claiming everything is peachy keen even though they know the public is learning the facts. As long as it is only a small group of us fighting for the truth, they will win. At one time I had thought that if the Drudge reported it, we’d be good, but even now they too are being ignored.

              When is this going to stop? When can we drain the swamp? What is our President going to do with this one? I hope he lays it all out on tv for all of us to see. Enough is enough.

              Thank you for the article link, it answered some important questions for me.

            Topless Alex is just there to sell vitamins supplements. Can’t sell vitamins if people think you’re fat. He looks fat, but isn’t fat, photo proves it. No more (or less) than that. Blame the people who took his ad revenue away for the display. Frankly if it were me (if I weren’t female) I’d be topless showing my muscles to sell my supplements too, if I needed to sell them as a source of revenue to keep my site solvent.

Alex has opened a lot of people’s eyes of what is really going on and the main stream media sure would not tell you some of the things Alex does or some of his speakers he has on! I wish some of you people would stop bitching about Alex! We should appreciate we have him geez!! Go ahead and rely on your main stream media for all your news!

        Is there any info that the people were being surveilled during the campaign? This was old information it seems and they have nothing after 2010? Is that correct?

        I hope somebody has more that is up to date, because the committee today is just ripping into the whole surveillance thing along with the fake Russia ties. Not sure this Corsi info is relevant to what is going down in Congress right now. They need some strong info to provide to counter attack this whole liberal Dem propaganda match today that the press will just eat up and publicize for all they’re worth.

        So far, the repubs on the committee are pretty much sitting on their hands. I am getting madder by the minute over their lack of even trying to make the Dems look like the liars they are.

            Or Congress can address the issue of “pre-spying” in a way that we actually get a vote on it. Their choice.

        Let the Dems get in the way. They have no choice, because their base has no understanding of long-term benefits. Then the Reps can use the nuclear option (majority), which they will win. Then they can use it again with the next nominee, who might just be the Scalia replacement…heee heeee

    President Trump,

    March 12, 2017, 12:29am

    President Trump,

    Thank you for fighting for our Republic.

    Please promptly release and publish every list of American citizen “terrorists” that our domestic enemies, elected and non-elected, have assembled as part of their ongoing efforts to enslave our citizens and overthrow our nation.

    By doing this, you will gain tremendous, active support for your efforts to “drain the swamp”.

    Please publicly televise new swearing-in ceremonies of all elected federal office holders, federal judges, all members of security agencies, Cabinet Secretaries, and Washington, D.C., bureaucrats.

    We the people need to watch our “public servants” re-commit their allegiance to our Constitution while they touch The Holy Bible.

    No paper barriers or other gimmicks allowed.

    Thank you for your efforts and your commitment to your voters.

    May you focus on rapidly arresting and prosecuting traitors, starting top-down, instead of bottom up.

    May I suggest two approaches that will empower our efforts to MAGA ?

    1. Racketeering charges, using RICO, against every traitor involved in the co-ordinated, group efforts to steal the 2016 elections and their continuing attempts to overthrow the results of November 8, 2016. There is ample public evidence presented by the vocal leaders of these attempted coups to jail them, NOW.

    2. Arrest and file accessory-to-murder charges against every official, elected, appointed, or hired, who has enabled illegal invaders to enter our country, stay here, and abuse our welfare systems while they rape, murder, and steal money, property, and jobs from our citizens.

    Thank you, again.

    We fervently pray, daily, for your continuing wisdom, health, discernment, and protection.

    Townhall-disruption is also playing to the choir. During the Tea Party, thugs sent to punch old people at townhalls backfired. This time strategists avoided that faux pas by sending out whole audiences and I am hearing crickets

    Good grief, Charlie Brown, we have the true “professional political class” ruling over this committee. Leahy has testified to 16 — sixteen — SCOTUS nominees? Forty years for others serving as Congresscritters?! Durbin? I think he was born on the floor of Congress.

    What happened to serving a term or two, then going home? What happened to earning the major part of your daily bread from working the land, or as a merchant or a doctor, IT developer, or entrepreneur back in your hometown with the role of Congresscritter being a temporary position?

    The need for these politicians to spend more time at their political job is only because they have grown the Federal government, grown their jobs, grown themselves to “masters of all they survey.”

    Hey! Retire, go home, get off the gravy train, find your wealth elsewhere. How odd that people who have modest net worth’s — and perhaps are in debt — when they enter office leave with millions and more to come with side deals and insider trading.

    Interesting.
    Judge Gorsuch talked about Justice Robert Jackson in his opening remarks.
    A preview of how he feels about the constitutionality of President Trump’s travel ban?
    I posted this (somewhere?) a couple of weeks ago:
    “Decisions involving foreign policy, including alien threats to national security, are political, not judicial in nature.”

    “Thus, they are wholly confided by our constitution to the political departments of the government, executive and legislative. They are delicate, complex, and involve large elements of prophecy. They are and should be undertaken only by those directly responsible to the people whose welfare they advance or imperil.

    “They are decisions of a kind for which the judiciary has neither aptitude, facilities, nor responsibility, and have long been held to belong in the domain of political power, not subject to judicial intrusion or inquiry.~~~Majority opinion, Justice Robert Jackson,
    SCOTUS case ~~ Chicago & Southern Airlines v. Waterman, 1948

    You remember Justice Robert Jackson, right?
    Attorney General under your progressive god, FDR?
    Chief prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials?
    SCOTUS Justice?

    Next, in 1952, the Legislature added “Whenever…”, codified it and made it stature law.

    “Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

    That’s what’s known as ‘black-letter’, no-two-ways-about-it, etched-in-stone, set-precedent LAW.”
