So much whining from Schiff and Swalwell
Democrats ousted Republican Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar from their seats on House committees in 2021. Turnabout is not fair play to today's Democrats, however. Speaker Kevin McCarthy recently removed Democrats Adam Schiff and Eric ("Gassy") Swalwell from their spots on the House Intelligence Committee, causing them to react like children who have been grounded.
Swalwell flatulated: "This is some Bakersfield BS. It's Kevin McCarthy weaponizing his ability to commit this 'political abuse' because he perceives me just like Mr. Schiff and Ms. Omar as an effective political opponent." (The House is soon slated to vote on removing Minnesota rep. Ilhan Omar from her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.)
No, in your case, Eric, it was because you dated a Chinese spy. And Schiff lied to Americans in the lead up to former president Donald Trump's first impeachment...and probably a number of other times as well.
The United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is tasked with oversight of the Intelligence Community, and thus is privy to a good deal of sensitive information. With the removal of Schiff and Swalwell, it just got a little more intelligent. And perhaps a little less friendly to spies.
Schiff and Swalwell attempted to summarily dismiss McCarthy's move as nothing more than retribution born of shear political vengeance. Republicans must not listen to these hypocritical clowns anymore. They — we — should be on to their game by now. They indignantly accuse others of doing what they have done routinely...and cry and whine when they think it has been done to them.
For the love of God, it is (past) time we just laugh at them and press on. In fact, it is the only chance this country has to survive, the only way to preserve "our democracy."
Schiff, Swalwell, and Omar? You could pick any three illegal aliens coming across our border, and they would do a better job if placed in Congress. Or any three literal clowns. Probably any three border collies, for that matter. Could any three living beings be worse for America?
Democrats are hell-bent...on replacing middle-class middle Americans with migrants from non-democratic countries because they believe they will vote for them in perpetuity. That, sadly, may well be true.
It would be far better for American citizens — and the country — if Democrats in Congress were replaced with people who love and respect them.
