Devin Nunes: House Cannot Debate FISA Reauthorization When Democrats are Not Here….

Devin Nunes appears on Fox News daytime to discuss the pending FISA reauthorization bill from the Senate amid President Trump’s request to expose corruption before legislation.  As Representative Nunes outlines there are only a handful of Democrats in Washington DC because they are planning all votes by proxy.  Nuts.

        We got the alpha and the omega on the Trump Presidency’s future during his first few months in office.

        Evelyn Farkas revealed that all of Washington was going to work to subvert him. That continues.

        Eric Cantor (former Republican House Whip) revealed that they (Washington again) were going to just wait him out, and obstruct him whenever possible. That continues.

        Two paths to the same door.

      “Stop complaining”
      Why? If you can’t complain about your representatives being gutless, clueless surrender monkeys and frauds then are we supposed to just shut up and doing nothing? Shall we hoist the black flag, cover our faces and engage in mass mayhem like Antifa? We have a right to complain and a duty to express our displeasure regarding a system that is fundamentally corrupt and increasingly tyrannical.

        Essentially, we have been doing nothing. Complaining doesn’t work. We continue to elect Republicans that desert us once they take office. For decades we have let the Dems/Libs takeover our education system, the judicial system, the Civil Service, and how we vote. Add to that Hollywood, Silicon Valley, the MSM, social media, the ACLU, and soon, talk radio. Our rights under the Bill of Rights have been ignored, circumvented and eroded. We play by the rules while our enemy (yes, the Dems are the enemy), do not. We think in the box, the Dems think (and act) outside the box. They organize and attack/attack/attack. We are always playing defense (President Trump is our only exception). Where is our “Lawfare?” The Constitution is just a piece of paper (until the Dems need it to be otherwise). I apologize for the negativity but the truth hurts. I am sorrowful that we are in such a state. Thank God that President Trump has come along. He is transformative but it will take years and years to remake the Republican Party in his image. The right folks need to step up to run for office, Trump Republicans (young, diverse, Trump Republicans). I believe President Trump’s greatest contribution is yet to come. It will be those years following his second term, when he work to transform the Republican Party.

      If his CRS score is F, then you already have the answer to your question as to why he didn’t vote for the amendment. BarrASSo is pure RINO Uniparty Deep State and has been rightfully excoriated several times by Sundance and other Treepers.

      Only solution is to replace him with a MAGA-loyal real Deplorable Republican.

      the “level headed” left voters are asking the same question about SANDERS! Why he could not find the time to vote……same as your guy….different group but same valid concerns. Sanders exposes his fraud ….this is incredibly significant. It shows that 2016 was not a one off, that SANDERS ONLY ROLE was to draw more radicals into the left establishment. Those that got fooled last time are quite white hot angry. And thanks to Biden’s epic blackish comments, we can include among those most dissilussioned about the legitimacy of the DEM platform, the black voters.

      What I AM SEEING (broadly) is traction is growing about the nature of the secret police spy powers. There are certainly many who don’t look at this thing from a political agenda, and that is REFRESHING…understanding the tyranny that these “laws” inevitably travel toward.

      The point is that there is a growing awareness that corruption and weaponization of these powers has happened ….yet to be reconciled, and only recently exposed for the ordinary man to bear witness. (thanks grennell…thanks powell…thank you Nunes…and definitely THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HAVING THE SPINE OF A TYRANASAURUS REX!!!)

      The reality is setting in…the tide is retreating…the sun is climbing…It’s still early but the folks are no longer asleep and are restless…(sort of thanks c-19 virus).

      and not a moment too soon either. this bill has to be killed and the program behind it. We are in the middle of one of the strongest winds of corruption where the state is using all manner of power to control citizens and their rights.

      america is waking up….lets help them drink the coffee, spare the cream and sugar.

      full court press…

      FISA and the patriot act are the instruments of corruption…

      FISA and patriot act is unamerican.

      secret courts belong in china

      secret police and hidden trials are what led to nazi germany.

    note…more to follow…stay tuned.

    DOJ Barr has informed congress that the bill in its present form is unacceptable. That he will advise the President to veto it.

    now the details, generally:

    that the current version has all but denied the FBI to utilize certain authorities for law enforcement. He does not specifically state what authorities he is speaking to, or if they relate to domestic spying. I suspect they are directly related to programs that allow unchecked spy programs toward american citizens. He wants these to remain in place.

    secondly, he has stated that there are ZERO CHANGES made that enforce penalties for abuses seen in the former obummer regime…again, offering no specific details about what those penalties and controls are to be. But simply that the bill in its present form has not made substantial changes that create stop gaps/controls to mitigate from the past abuses occurring again.

    In addition, apparently, AG Barr has conferred with GOP leadership and advised them they should not be voting favorably about this version until these necessary changes are introduced.

    I pause thinking what AG Barr actually has up his sleeve. Perhaps being slippery and making the appearance to a trump agenda to reduce the power of the spy state…not a chance.

    I want to read the drafts…and see precisely what changes AG desires..on both areas…the continuation of programs..and the “new” barriers of control.


    I have called upon my state representative to coordinate with all elected officials to file immediate court suits to stop this vote by proxy fraud. Under ZERO circumstances should this be permitted under the constitution, whether under a pandemic or outright military war or asteroid impact. A direct vote in person, in writing is required.

    this must not be permitted

    get involved…write and call your representatives and block this fraud .

    do it right now.

    you can always watch the rocket show later!

      On that basis alone, if what the AG says is in fact entirely factual (I would lean towards his being honest about that one), I would then agree that the bill needs to be vetoed.

      My guess is that some of the changes he wants to remove because those changes may infringe on his ability to spy on Americans, are probably good changes that we want as citizens. So it is most likely a very mixed bag.

      As citizens we need more sunlight on the bill or I am inclined to endorse its veto altogether. Do not vote for any legislation what you don’t fully understand. No FISA on American citizens – get regular U.S. court warrants for any desired wiretapping.

    I’ve been reading the articles on the CCP aggressiveness with the protestors in Hong Kong and how the CCP government (with their gov’t media) controls the Chinese people rather than the Chinese people controlling the CCP government. I’m rooting for the protestors to somehow beat down the CCP, but I just don’t see it happening…the CCP is now too big to fail with their dominance.

    Somebody, anybody, please tell me the difference between the CCP and what we see here in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Have the progressives/liberals/Dems/Rinos/media gained too much momentum and power that they are now too big to fail with their dominance? Our Cold Anger protests (more like complaining and whining) are getting We the People nowhere! We are at a critical moment to save this Republic; to weed out and destroy the corruptors…and if we don’t do it before this November (5 months from now), either (1) the freedom loving ship will have set sail and we Treepers and conservatives will be left behind, or (2) we will then need to resort to aggressive overthrow and be willing to literally fight the war of takeover.

    Our President and the few political warriors that stand with him need to hear and see us and know that WE will go the distance with them.

    I’m willing to do whatever it takes to start this takeover process NOW…enough of this BULLSH!T. I’m open for suggestions…anybody with me? For starters, I’ll be the first one to knock on Peter Strzok’s door and then go pay a visit to Jim Acosta. It is time to serve OUR country!

    Here’s where this all gets tricky; What happens if the house votes on this and other bills using this new fangled “proxy” vote system and then the Court in a week or two declares it unconstitutional?
    Are all the bills passed or voted on, including this FISA renewal, then null and void?

    Or would the case be appealed and have to work it’s way to SCOTUS with all House legislation in question? What a can of worms this could become.

    pitiful and pathetic. Gabbart withdraws libel claim against HRC! why? c-virus..huh?

    real story: authentic claim with merit, but dropped because she just received a very large donation from the DNC to stop attacking the dog barker/whisperer.

    see Gabby …do not look away…she’s just another shill in it for the money…and nothing much more than that. Preserving her chancing in the next go around. Not understanding she could have her cake and eat it too. By the time gabby becomes relevant in politics, and this current obama-gate investigation has eclipsed the sun, she will have thrown all her aces away. Too bad. pure amateur hour.

    funny story: when gabby was first seated in politics, hawai’i, she was late almost 4 hours for her confirmation….and caught on video surfing…not making this up. We fondly call it “gabby time”…sort of a cult hero among the groms for her seemingly indifference to anything other than a good time. get big points from the locals on that little stunt.

    and oh, what has she done for Hawai’i specifically with c-virus safety?

    went surfing …again…exposed all over again..the absentee official from hawai’i doing what nearly all of them do in Hawai’i…anything but work for the people…it’s getting pretty loud in the islands now.

    FISA surveilled more innocent people than terrorists. The terrorists, both home grown and foreign, were quite successful in their plots (San Bernadino, The Pulse, Boston bombers, Las Vegas, Parkland shooter amongst others), as average Americans were persecuted, financially ruined, and continue to fight to restore their reputations against a rogue, corrupt, and politically-driven entity. Burn FISA to the ground, and salt the earth where it stood.

      coincidence they would roll this out in the news with the fisa renewal ongoing?

      pay attention…it will come up again.

      DOJ/Barr: see folks we need the ability to mass surveil american citizens…we would never have been able to locate this islamic radical who conspired raised money and it directly implicated in the deaths of hundreds of innocent lives.

      except, they didn’t stop him…he left the country around 2012’ish…and has been in the radar, interpol since.

      oh and by the way, just in case, if you know where this radical criminal is, please drop us a line…we need YOUR HELP!

      expect this story to get bent ….we know the drill…

      I want open hearing on the fisa renewal…all of it. I want congress to call on every single person who was surveilled in the obama regime to testify how this harmed them…

      lets start with flynn…papaD …carter page (yeah I know..need to implicate him on the record anyway..a useful tool can be abused both ways no?)…trump family members….others ?

      get them on in there, pack the place..let them talk freely about the nature of corrupt acts thus far not reconciled before having any more discussions about secret police spy powers.

        I am hopeful that people are paying attention, and realizing that if President Trump, his family and Administration can be the targets of unbelievable abuse and corruption, so too can they. If they want you bad enough, it is well-established that they will manufacture evidence against you, leak to a complicit media, and have 75 other members of the downwind chain swear to, notarize and testify against you in a court of law. The case you mentioned is meant to bolster reauthorizing FISA. Of course, the super-top-secret cases and plots that were averted cannot be discussed, because of national security something, something or something.

    watching House resolution LIVE right now.
    HR 981
    reauthorize FISA foreign surveillance program
    vote on debate rules
    on agreeing to resolution

    note: agreed solely by democrats that would allow one member to vote on behalf of up to 10 others not physically present and not participating in the house. Zero republicans have agreed to this fraud..this fraud was first committed in HR 965, unrelated to FISA debate rules resolution..GOP has challenged and file suit in federal courts yesterday in response to this HR 965 bullcorn proxy fraud and will likely include the same argument against this fraud being committed in HR 981 proxy

    here are the results just out (for FISA debate rules, HR 981):

    dems: 228 / 5
    repub: 0 / 183
    indep: 0 / 1

    totals: 228 / 189

    17 republicans did not vote at all.

    * HR 965 – this is the very first time that congress has attempted to commit this level of fraud!!!
    ** HR 981 – this is the second time that congress has attempted to commit this level of fraud!!!

    72 democrats are AWOL and are using this “proxy” fraud as an excuse to not perform their constitutional requirements. In addition, it’s obvious the dems are using this c-virus calamity as an excuse to drive proxy voting as the new norm/

    background: GOP Members have formally challenged this proxy vote in federal court. That case is likely to be reviewed quite rapidly…stay tuned. Should the courts agree, will overturn both HR 965 and 861…with 861 being key as it pertains to house rules governing fisa renewal (965 appears to be important too, but related primarily to muslim immigrant protections from oppressive CCP dictates and human right violations)
