Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has announced he’ll be seeking the Democrats’ 2020 Presidential nomination. Swalwell, previously best known for pushing the debunked Russian collusion narrative and threatening Americans with nuclear weapons, made the announcement on Stephen Colbert's late-night comedy show. It was the first legitimately funny moment for Colbert in years.
Swalwell expounded on his gun-grabbing plans, saying his Administration would “Just take the 15 million that are out there and buy them back.” Putting aside his lowball math, he didn’t sell mine to me, so how can he buy it back?
Democrats are sticking with their narrative that President Donald Trump deserves their ire due to the so-called “family separation” policies in place at the border. Considering the policy began 3 years before Trump was elected, I’d say their next party with former President Barack Obama is gonna get awkward.
CNN pundit Jeffrey Toobin took the “family separation” narrative to the extreme, claiming outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen would forever be known as the “woman who put children in cages.” While Toobin ignored the Obama policy of putting kids in cages, his description of Nielsen is still better than “dude who knocked up a co-worker’s kid, and had to get sued to pay child support.”
Democrats also kept trying to beat the “Trump’s tax returns” drum. While I don’t care about anyone’s tax returns, as long as they didn’t violate the law, I’m a lot less interested in the tax returns of someone who got rich before seeking public office than I am in those of someone who got rich while serving in public office. Ask Bernie Sanders, who is a multi-millionaire with multiple homes.
Speaking of the communist Senator from Vermont, Sanders will reportedly release his own tax returns as early as next week. The ancient Sanders warned fans that the returns will reveal him to be an extremely wealthy man. But Sanders excused his apparent hypocrisy, saying anyone can be a multi-millionaire, as long as they “write a bestseller.” For a Soviet-style communist, Bernie is one hell of a capitalist.
Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stole another step in the spotlight, describing senior White House advisor Stephen Miller as a “white nationalist,” and whining: “The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.” Right. Because “white nationalism” is all the rage with the Jews these days.
While their own party embraces anti-Semitism, the Democrats brought their sideshow sensibilities to the House Judiciary Committee with hearings on the rise of “white nationalism.” The farce got even sillier when Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) teamed up to attack witness Candace Owens. Loving the optics of two wealthy, powerful, men, treating a black woman like a punching bag. Nice patriarchy you got there, Democrats.
Lieu and Nadler weren’t the only ones letting their fascist flags fly. The liberal hate group Code Pink planted operatives in the gallery with signs calling Owens a “Hitler defender.” Not sure when they had the signs printed, but it must have been after they got back from their trip to Teheran, where they cheered Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
