  1. Lying under oath means nothing. Clapper, Brennan, Mueller, and others have lied under oath with nothing ever happening to them. In fact, they become "experts" on mainstream media outlets.

  2. The US government is so eager to go to war with China that it has a military pack with Austrailia and the UK, this is just more war mongering to invade China. The US gives our information to corporations with no guidelines

  3. Why was that a dumb solution to force sell tiktok? If you kill it, what's keeping the ccp from just starting tiktok2? By selling, you corner the market with a known actor in charge.

  4. I get Sagaar is supposedly a conservative, but who does he actually like/support? I only ever hear him crapping on Republicans even when they do something he seems to support.

  5. Starting your analysis with "I know it's just Ted Cruz" is the same as Don Lemon calling Gupta's interview with Rogan " tongue in cheek." There isn't a need to go after Cruz here and say he's acting in bad faith. They also do the same with Rand Paul. I've never heard them say Bernie was acting in bad faith.

  6. So after watching that exchange ,we can all tell the man is lying and/or refuses to answer the question . That will be it? Nothing will be done? And this really happens all the time? Wow…just wow😵

  7. Put aside what you think about Cruz personally. He loves this country, and is a firm believer in the Constitution. We need more people like him.

  8. You guys are great trying to be in the middle but why must you state "yeah, I know, Ted Cruz, I cringe too…" What was cringe-worthy about that? If you're going to be trusted you need to call out good and bad – not just bad.

  9. Regardless that I do NOT approve of what this man (Ted Cruz) stands for, it torments me to affirm that he has some teeth with his angle by means of his questioning! Dagnabit!

  10. I think it's funny that this TikTok guy clearly doesn't realize that Ted Cruz knows all the same fancy legal language that he knows! Derrrr…🤦🤔
    Just keep digging that hole a little deeper…
