Corsi: Lynch Confirmation Hearing Shows GOP Leadership Intends to Surrender on Amnesty
(Dr. Jerome Corsi) – Last week, with the confirmation hearings of Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman to be nominated as Attorney General, we saw more evidence of the GOP establishment leadership is planning to double-cross the Tea Party by caving into a willing compliance with Barack Obama’s unconstitutional “executive actions” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants already in the United States.
When Lynch asserted before the Senate Judiciary Committee that, “I don’t see any reason to doubt the reasonableness of the view” of the Obama-declared amnesty, only a few GOP senators like Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, pressed Lynch with hard questions, telegraphing their decision to vote against her in what the GOP leadership under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pre-determined will be a failed effort of protest by a few Tea Party-sympathetic Republican Senators.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., almost alone on the Senate Judiciary Committee told Lynch in response, “That’s why I have difficulty with your nomination,” noting she, like Eric Holder before her, was defending Obama’s unconstitutional move. “I just want to tell you, that’s a big problem,” Sessions concluded.
The GOP capitulation on the Lynch nomination is particularly shocking because it signals the GOP establishment in Washington remains determined to double-cross Tea Party voters that handed the GOP in the November mid-term election the majority the Senate and a larger majority in the House.
In the Senate Judiciary Committee, the GOP had sufficient evidence to press Lynch from answers that were pre-packaged and well rehearsed to be evasive.

Seahawks’ Russell Wilson: ‘God Comes First In My Life’
(Daily Surge) – Even if you’re pulling for the New England Patriots to win in Super Bowl XLIX, it’s hard to dislike Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
The guy’s a class act all around.
And while most of the talk surrounding the upcoming game has focused on either Tom Brady’s deflated balls or on Marshawn Lynch’s hostility toward the sports press, Russell Wilson used part of his time with the media this week to talk unapologetically about his faith.
He was clear: God comes first in his life, and he wants to be remembered as a Christian man of integrity.
“In terms of my legacy off the field, I want to be a Christian man that helps lead and helps change lives and helps serve other people. It’s not about me, you know,” Wilson said. “It’s not about me and it’s about just helping other people. So that’s kind of where I keep my focus.”
“In terms of my faith, my faith is everything: God comes first, family and friends come second, and football comes third,” he said. “I think when you keep it in that order, great things happen to you. You don’t stress out about much.”
Speaking of the importance of integrity, he said: “We all make mistakes or whatever, but we’re football players. We’re able to use our gifts. For me, I’m able to use my gift to glorify God. That’s what it’s about for me.”
