Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) recently announced he was running for president. Why not? He joins about 20 other Democrats in seeking the 2020 nomination, each one seemingly further to the left than the one before. Swalwell, who is from the “Left Coast,” is the chair of the Intelligence Modernization and Readiness Subcommittee of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (IMRSHPSCI…MOUSE) and is also a member of the House Judiciary Committee. How he got placed on these committees is anyone’s guess. He is only 38 and does not possess unimpeachable credentials.
Speaking of impeachment, Swalwell called for Attorney General William Barr to be impeached for declining to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. He previously remarked that impeaching President Trump is “not off the table.” Like most Democrats, he seems to want to impeach anyone and everyone else impeachable who doesn’t agree with him on the issues. And, like most Democrats, he is anti-gun and pro-abortion, a policy blend that ensures that death reigns supreme. Also like most Democrats, he is running for president in 2020, as I previously mentioned.
But all’s not well with Swalwell, who called Trump a “traitor” prior to the release of the Mueller Report. His Democratic rivals are generally ahead of him when it comes to raising money and putting forth policy ideas, so he has promised to select a woman as his running mate. Because, he notes, he’s a “white man” who knows he “can’t speak to someone else’s experience.” In an even more pathetic attempt to ingratiate himself with females, the largest voting block in America, he recently tweeted: “Do you know how many times the word ‘Woman’ is mentioned in the Constitution? Zero.” He added, “That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected.”
He forgot to mention the number of times the Constitution mentions the word “man,” also zero.
Then, in a fit of virtue-signaling, Swalwell correctly-- if arrogantly-- noted that the Constitution does not mention the word “lesbian” either. He went on to angrily denounce the founders, and James Madison in particular, stating: “What’s more, don’t look for ‘dyke’ in the Constitution! Or ‘whore.’ Or ‘butch.’ You can seek, but you shall not find ‘dildo’ or ‘vibrator’ anywhere in the ‘Bundle of Compromises.’ And there is no reference to ‘the LGBTQ+ Community.’ How is that possible? Nor do the words ‘transgender,’ ‘polyamory,’ or ‘necrophilia’ appear anywhere in our founding document. The phrase ‘dental dam’ is absent, too. It doesn’t appear. Not once. Not one damn time! Shameful.”
