Eric Swawell "Makes No Sense".

Original post made by Michael Austin, Pleasanton Meadows, on Jan 8, 2017

East Bay Politician Eric Swawell was recently referred to as disingenuous. Editor Justin Baragona in a recent article described Eric Swawell as "politician that makes no sense".

Tucker Carlson in interview asked about Swawell's bipartisan commission he is putting together, to probe election interference by the Russian's.

Swawell said there were 180 members of congress supporting his effort. Carlson said the 180 members are all Democrats, how its bipartisan if it hasn't gotten any Republicans to have joined on? Swawell responded, "the republican members will be added when the commission is created".

On the environment, Carlson asked Swawell, pointing out a new report showed Russia was pushing anti-fracking propaganda because natural gas production is hurting Russia's oil and gas industry, Carlson noted that environmental groups were "taking their cues from Russia propaganda masters".

"Would they be subpoenaed too", Carlson asked, in relation to Swawell's proposed commission. When Swawell pivoted from the question, Carlson begin laughing at him. Later asking if "Greenpeace comes out against fracking, doesn't it make you wander if they got it from Russian spy masters"?

Swawell responding, "and if they got that from Russia, they should disavow it now".

Carlson referred to Swawell as "Disingenuous?.

Swawell is a bloviating opportunist who represents an area where people like him thrive: the liberal bay area.

It is simply amazing to me that liberals/democrats/mass media are so up-in-arms about alleged Russian "hacking" and further allegations of Putin endorsing Trump, yet don't realize that Trumps positions on fracking, nuclear modernization and increased military funding run in direct contradiction to Russia's interests.

Duh...

And let's talk about that "hacking".

It was proven that the Chinese government hacked (no quotes) the Office of Personnel Management data-base and stole tens of millions of personal data of our military personnel. Yet what did the Obama government, Democrats, liberals and mass media do?

Crickets!

No sanctions; no calls for war...nothing! Why is that?

Contrast with the alleged Russian "hacking": John Podesta (a private individual) and the DNC (a corporation) get phished because of their own incompetence (and stupidity) and now the Obama administration, democrats, liberals and mass media want sanctions against the Russians?

This reaction cannot be attributed to cognitive dissonance. This is just plain stupid politics and covering backsides. The Obama administration, the Clintons, dems/libs and mass media are protecting the Chinese and their own power structure. I'm sure Trump and his administration know this.

And what is simply hysterical is that the liberals/dems/mass media spent the last 8 years weaponizing the federal government only now to hand the keys over to Trump.
Where were you liberals/dems/mass media when Obama was entering wars without congressional approval, passing major legislation without any opposing party votes, and ruling almost exclusively through executive orders?

You deserve the mockery that comes at you EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Just now at Trumps press conference:

Paraphrase Trump: '22 million names and sensitive material hacked by China yet nobody (government and media) did nothing about it'...

I hope Trump goes after China. It's well past time.

So glad I don't belong to either party. both are inept.

And really, the entire Bay Area is liberal? Quite a big paint brush you use.

You do know who owns quite a bit of USofA debt, yah?

SHale,

"You do know who owns quite a bit of USofA debt, yah?"

So it seems that your point with this statement, as breathtakingly tone deaf as it is, is to say that we should NOT go after China for HACKING SENSITIVE, CLASSIFIED INFORMATION because they own US debt?

Did I get that right SHale?

And to say the bay area is not liberal is to proclaim the sky is green and not be taken seriously.

While in congress, (FOUR YEARS NOW)Swalwell representing us, authored one bill, that became law, naming a post office in Dublin.

Visit Swalwell's wed site where he lists the committee's Pelosi appointed him to. Look for bills he authored, that became law, there are none, other than naming a post office in Dublin. This record is on pace with his predecessor, representing this district.

Swalwell is along for the ride, financed by Pelosi, for as long as we in this district continue to vote for him.

Swalwell voting no on Kate's Law is a slap in the face to all of us, and is what will be his defeat in the next election against a moderate republican.

Of course you got it wrong. I am not tone deaf. Merely pointing out a detail. I realize Trump has bro love for Putin and Russia can't do any wrong, but not much for bro love China. I get that. The media gets that. The American people get that.
All the hub bub about what Russia may or may not have done; like the USofA hasn't done the same thing. sheesh.
100 days starts soon, r u ready to be a critic or just a cheerleader?

SHale,

"Merely pointing out a detail."

To what end? What EXACTLY does China holding US debt have to do with the topic at hand? You can try and weasel your way through a non-answer but I know better.

"I realize Trump has bro love for Putin and Russia.."

Umm, proof?

The rest of what you wrote isn't worth responding.

Really? I have to walk you though it? In China's best interest USofA remains financially strong and stable. Oh, please I know you read the news. You KNOW Trump wants to have Putin's children (so to speak). the problem here is Putin is much much smarter (or is that cunning)than Trump. Trump in for a big surprise, imho.
Dude: when one has nothing to say, they don't reply at all. boink.

He gets 100 days to perform.

Huh?

Ohhhhh! So China hacked OPM to keep the USoA financially strong?

Honestly, you should quit while you're behind on this topic.

"You KNOW Trump wants to have Putin's children (so to speak)."

I'm not convinced that this is a slight exaggeration. /Sarc

Sorry, I know sarcasm goes over some heads by a wide margin. And the brush you use is so wide and drips paint all over. The country in this topic is Russia and somehow you are 'upset' of what China did (or didn't do) and that nobody really responded at the level you wish. Pretty sure China didn't do what Russia has/is been accused of.
You really need to expand your news gathering abilities to include something beyond Trump/GOP cheer leading.
As always, you are very entertaining and never disappoint just how far you will jump up and down.....thanks!

Fine, let's not talk about China, let's talk about the content of the emails that the Russians phished from a private individual and corporation.

Those emails prove that the Democrat party and its loser candidate are CORRUPT to the bone.

Has anyone noticed that the media, all the democrats and republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and boy wonder loser Marco Rubio are just spoiling for a fight with the Russians? It can't be because they know that there are more emails that they have that spells out other crimes that the democrats and some republicans have been committing?
