The two top clowns in Congress being shredded by journalists in this country are Swalwell and Schiff. A top genuine journalist, Monica Showalter sums up Schiff’s attempt to replace Feinstein very well in American Thinker: Web Link

I love her final comment- “ What a pathetic situation -- all bravado, and no political muscle, just a weak, pencil-necked, effort to make himself look important. He's going to wish he had President Trump back to lie about.”

So Schiff and Swallwell, the two guys who spent every night on national tv for four years insisting they had very definite proof that the president of the United States colluded with and was an agent of the Russian government, finally got what they earned and deserved.

Two delusional individuals with no self awareness continuing to be the real threat to democracy.

The big question for the democrats that run our state is will they continue to vote these two clowns into office.

Truly and unbelievably pathetic….

""Our democracy is at great risk. Because GOP leaders care more about power than anything else," Schiff said on Twitter on Wednesday. "And because our economy isn't working for millions of hard-working Americans."

Sorry Adam. The Democrats are the ones who want more government control/power over the citizens, not the "MAGA" Republicans. What do you think the push for "equity", "climate change", "disinformation" boards, ESG, new IRS agents, gun control, etc. is all about? We are all at great risk of no longer living in a free society - by electing more people like you.

The economy isn't "working" because so called progressives know nothing about economics and want more people dependent on the government - for votes. In addition to deliberately increasing energy (production) costs by restricting supply, they punish success and hard work with higher taxes, they want businesses to be run like charities for "income equality" purposes, and they pay people more not to work.
