Good on you, Jan! It's one

Good on you, Jan! It's one thing to give lip service to the Constitution, it's quite another when it comes to actually following it.

THUMBS UP Jan...You're the BEST!

Now THAT is TRUTH in MEDIA.

Thank God you are able to get face to face with these hypocrites and absolutely bust them philosophically.

Your questions are like arrows shot straight to the heart of the subject.

Like asking if giving out foreign aid or intervening in foreign disputes are part of the enumerated powers of the Consititution.

I noticed that West NEVER ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION about that. He walked away. Which makes him as bad as any liberal in congress.

PLEASE keep up the great work of calling out the hypocracy - EVEN among so-called conservative, "Tea-Party types like West.

I'll bet you could expose Cruz for the half-fraud he is too.

West is just another empty suit ...

... who has no concept of the substance of a topic, but only knows how to regurgitate talking points he memorized.

He was on the House Armed Services Committee, yet he has no clue how many military bases the US has? He has no clue how much Russia spends on military? No clue how many nuclear warheads Russia has?

No ability to discuss any substance of the topic at all.

This is the theme in Congress, in at least 90% of cases.

Thanks, Jan, for "outing" these people by showing us what empty suits they really are, even though they themselves, for the most part, have no clue they are outing themselves.

Great Questions!

What he meant to say was we need to spend so much on the military so the arms suppliers can make massive profits. And we need wars and boogeymen enemies to make sure those profits keep flowing. No boogeyman, no profits.

Also, I almost puked when he quoted the worst, and most traitorous president, Lincoln, to backup his view to ignore the constitution.

Jan is

a tremendous asset to freedom and I admire his conviction and truth telling.

However, If west's view and responses surprises folks, you need to wake up a little. West has been a true neocon for years and he'd sooner hurt this country further if it allowed us to kill a few more people. He is for war all the time. I've been waiting for the GOP to trot him out.

Thanks Jan!

Great stuff in that first video. Loved your questions. Couldn't hear that 2nd video though. Sound all muffled (for me at least).

In any case, keep up the good work. I feel like you're improving at this. I really liked the way you offered him a chance to answer (and display his knowledge or maybe reveal something else) and then gave him the answer (e.g. Russia spends 50 billion on defense). What I got from this is he was just being a politician using his talking points (national security strategy) rather than give your questions any thought. It's sickening how any talks of cutting spending bring a response of "I don't want to cut the bone". Our country is broke and he thinks we need to continue spending $650B per year (of our money) on defense. Just plain absurd!

Love your work Jan!

Keep the demagogues squirming!

Ted Cruz

is no different

Ron Swanson

"Better Angels Of Our Nature" WTF?

Oh, i guess that means its ok to violate the constitution because of what Lincoln said 160 years ago.

This clown West is just another useful idiot for the banker controlled Military Industrial Government Complex...

West, Ma Vaffanculo!

West is just another tool for the

military industrial complex and a typical asshat when it comes to the constitution. Keep after these guys, it's always interesting to see how easily they expose their ignorance when asked questions which veer off their memorized stance.

That would have been hilarious...

...if you had thrown out a "cut and run" comment to him as he fleed your questions.

Great job, Jan. Spectacular lines of questioning.

Typical- The constitution is to be upheld under

all circumstances except when it gets in his way of doing "what is right" Its that type of thinking why we have Obamacare which he detests as the left think they are doing what is right
