Californians react with derision to presidential aspirant Eric ‘we’ll nuke you’ Swalwell and impeach Trump plan

Rep. Eric Swalwell, 38, is a California Demonrat who represents the 15th congressional district in the San Francisco Bay Area.

On April 8, 2019, Swalwell joined the growing list of hate-America freaks and communists who’ve announced their candidacy for the 2020 Demonrat presidential nomination. Swalwell fittingly chose as the venue to make his announcement, the late-night talk-show of another Demonrat, Stephen Colbert.

Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2012, Swalwell is a strong supporter of abortion and LGBTs. He is also not just an advocate of gun control, he wants government to confiscate whatever guns we have and if we resist, the government would “nuke” us.

As I’d posted last November, Swalwell wrote in a USA Today op/ed, “Ban assault weapons, buy them back, go after resisters,” that he and other Democrats had been too deferential to Second Amendment activists, and urged that all “military-style semiautomatic assault weapons” be outlawed and confiscated.

Responding to Swalwell’s gun ban and confiscation proposal, former InfoWars reporter Joe Biggs @Rambobiggs tweeted:

So basically @RepSwalwell wants a war. Because that’s what you would get. You’re outta your fucking mind if you think I’ll give up my rights and give the gov all the power.

To which Swalwell tweeted this threat, which he later said was “sarcasm”:

And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

On January 4, 2019, on syndicated radio’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Swalwell cautioned his fellow House Demonrats against voting to impeach President  Trump, saying he thinks it is “bad for democracy.” Instead of impeaching without an “airtight case,” Swalwell said his hope is that Trump is voted out at the ballot box. (Breitbart)

In response, Demonrat billionaire Tom Steyer (see “Tom Steyer: The man behind the $20M impeach Trump campaign and his strange ‘walnut sauce’ email“) announced he will be hosting a “Need to Impeach Town Hall” at the Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, CA, on April 23. Steyer said the town hall is intended to urge Swalwell to push to start House impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

The news article of the town hall on Patch elicited an unprecedented (for Patch) number of comments, nearly all of which are from Swalwell’s 15th congressional district, which covers most of eastern Alameda County including Castro Valley, Dublin, the northern part of Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Pleasanton, Sunol, Union City, and parts of Contra Costa County, including San Ramon and a portion of Danville.

Here are the comments:

Bobbi Fleckman, Castro Valley: “MAGA! TRUMP 2020!! Swalwell, you are nothing but an embarrassment. You and your anti-American, progressive socialist cronies have ruined CA.”

Anneke, Castro Valley: “Why doesn’t Swalwell save his breath and time and do something that actually benefits the people in Alameda County? Why doesn’t he help solve our homelessness issues? Help with the high cost of housing? Help us get money to repair our roads and freeways? Why? Because it’s much easier to get in front of a microphone or on TV and bloviate against Trump than it is to actually solve some problems.”

Mark, Danville: “I read the headline and thought it was about impeaching Swalwell… was going to sign up.”

Rick, Danville: “Steyer and Swalwell – two guys who have never done anything that requires courage. Two lost, sorry souls craving attention.”

Bret, Dublin: “Was very happy to see the responses here. This is an absolute joke. Steyer must have money to burn, because this will amount to exactly zero. Swalwell continues to be an embarrassment to himself and D15. On a positive note, if he jumps on board with this whack job, it will destroy his chances of winning the Dem spot for 2020.”

Joanne Duncan, Livermore: “Would love to see Maga hats there! What a croc!”

Tina Brown, Livermore: “I will not be there! I love My President!”

Virginia Edwards, Livermore: “MAGA~Trump in 2020!!!”

J Cota, Livermore: “who is this Tom Steyer billionaire socialist who wants to keep minions under him and his SF cartel … We LOVE our President! I’ll be there PROTESTING your socialist indoctrination along with my Patriot friends!! #MAGA”

Karin Smith, Livermore: “This is the dumbest thing ever. Honestly, I think Swalwell should just resign for considering something so stupid. Get over it, people. You’re acting like children. Boo hoo. We had to deal with 8 years of obama. I’m not even a big fan of Trump, but I sure do like my pocket book right now–much better than how obama destroyed the economy. GROW UP!!”

Rolland, Pleasanton: “We need to Impeach Eric, He has done nothing but cause problems.very dumb.”

Bruce Brogden, Pleasanton: “Yes, I agree impeach Swalwell. I voted for Trump and will again. He is not impeachable. Beside impeaching a president does not remove him from office (i.e. Bill Clinton). It only limits their power. I also don’t think The Patch should be used to advertise tyranny.”

Bruce Brogden, Pleasanton: “Anther reason to not buy or patronize Ruby Hill Winery.”

Christopher F., Pleasanton: “Welcome to obscurity party for Eric Swalwell, sponsored by Ruby Hill ‘Whinery.'”

Trooper2, Pleasanton: “Outside Alameda County no one has even heard of him and he says the stupidest things just for the publicity. Hope you are reading these comments Mr Swalwell!”

Kelly Gamble, San Ramon: “More idiocy. Vote Conservative! Save our country!! ????????”

Kevin Christopher, San Ramon: “Nice to see our Representative using his time on important issues. Go back to work like the people that you serve”

Dave Fllcek, San Ramon: “Hey Swalwell, stop crying about Trump and move on. The person you should be trying to impeach is your own Governor Newsom! TRUMP 2020!!!!”

Carol Rossi, San Ramon: “Eric is Nancy’s poodle. She says sit and stay and he piddles on the floor. What are we impeaching Mr. Trump for? Saving us from Hillary and her socialist ambitions?”

And one comment from outside Swalwell’s 15th congressional district — in Berkeley!:

Richard Royal, Berkeley: “Is this guy *honestly* this stupid?”

Not a single comment favors Swalwell or the impeach Trump campaign, which leads me to wonder how Swalwell ever got elected in the first place.

Fusion GPS, hired by Hillary for dirt on Trump, also paid 3 journalists

Fusion GPS is a commercial DC-based intelligence firm that conducts opposition political research on political candidates, such as on Mitt Romney. The company was hired by Planned Parenthood (PP) to investigate pro-life activists who took a series of “sting” videos showing PP selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.
In the 2016 presidential campaign during the GOP primary elections, Fusion GPS was first hired by Republicans, rumored to be RINO Sen. John McCain, to conduct “opposition research” on Donald Trump, which ended when Trump became the GOP’s presidential nominee.
The DNC (Democratic National Committee) and Hillary Clinton then hired Fusion GPS to continue digging up “dirt” on Trump. Fusion GPS, in turn, hired former British MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump, which became infamous for its entirely-fake allegation that Trump — a self-described “germophobe” — had engaged Russian prostitutes to urinate (“golden shower”) on a Russian hotel bed supposedly used by Obama.

But Fusion GPS didn’t employ just Chris Steele.
On November 21, 2017, Fusion GPS’s documents were unsealed as a result of a ruling by D.C. district court judge Richard Leon in a lawsuit over the firm’s bank records.
As reported by Luis Orozco for Conservative Daily Post, the unsealed documents reveal new details of payment transactions made to and by Fusion GPS, as well shed new light on requests made by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence concerning the firm.
Altogether, Fusion GPS’s bank documents list 112 payment transactions involving the firm, most of which are redacted, except for transactions between Fusion and two law firms on two Russia-related projects. The law firms are:
(1) Perkins Coie, which represented the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, paid Fusion GPS a total of more than $1.4 million in 2016 for “opposition research” on Donald Trump:

  • $1,024,408 between May 24, 2016 and Dec. 28, 2016.
  • $365,275 on the eve of the election on Oct. 28, 2016.
  • A payment after the election in late December 2016.

(2) BakerHostetler, which paid Fusion GPS $523,651 between March 7, 2016 and Oct. 31, 2016, to investigate a London-based banker, Bill Browder, who helped push through the Magnitsky Act — a sanctions law vehemently opposed by the Russian government. The $523,651 came from a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering.
Fusion GPS founding partner and former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson compiled the research for Fusion’s anti-Browder project, working closely with a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya, who gave Simpson’s research to Russia’s prosecutor general Yuri Chaika. Veselnitskaya also shared Simpson’s research, in the form of a 4-page memo to Donald Trump Jr., with whom she met in the Trump Tower in June 2016 — a meeting that was arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.
As Conservative Daily Post‘s Luis Orozco points out, opposition research firm Fusion GPS “is the common denominator linked to two different schemes used to damage the Trump campaign” — “one of the main weapons . . . to prevent the Republican victory.”
There are two more interesting things that are revealed in the un-redacted  Fusion GPS financial transactions:

  1. Strangely, the transaction list doesn’t show payments that Fusion made to Chris Steele, although it is known that he was paid a total of  $168,000 for his work, which lasted from June 2016 until the presidential election.
  2. Fusion GPS´s unsealed documents also reveal a request by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for records of:
    • Five payments made by Fusion for “research” and to a mysterious “Russia expert.”
    • Nine payments made by Fusion to three journalists who had reported on Russia issues.

A memo filed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on November 21, 2017, shows that the committee’s lawyers are seeking the records of nine Fusion GPS payments to three journalists, all of whom have reported and been quoted in articles related to Russia. But the identities of the three journalists are redacted.
Please contact Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chair of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and demand that the American people have the right to know the names of the three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS — hired by the Democrats to dig up “dirt” on Trump — to do who knows what. Below is Nunes’ contact info.:

Address: Longworth House Office Building, Suite 1013, Washington, DC 20515
Phone: (202) 225-2523
Fax: (202) 225-3404
Email: https://nunes.house.gov/contactform/

By the way, a recent Daily Caller investigation found a hitherto unknown association between Fusion GPS and Tom Steyer, a billionaire financier and Democrat Party operative who is funding the $20 million campaign to impeach President Trump.

In 2012, Steyer hired Fusion GPS and its founding partner, Glenn Simpson, to conduct an investigation to help pass ballot initiative Proposition 39, aimed at closing a tax loophole for California businesses and funneling money to so-called clean energy projects.
Prop 39 was a success, which made Steyer a rising star in the world of Democratic politics. He was the party’s most generous donor in the 2016 election cycle — giving more than $90 million to various political action committees.
Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite here.)

Tom Steyer: The man behind the $20M impeach Trump campaign and his strange 'walnut sauce' email

Just days before the 2016 presidential election, WikiLeaks published a collection of emails sent by and to John Podesta, a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Thanks to a tip on Voat, a hitherto obscure Podesta email takes on new significance because among its recipients is the man who is funding a $20 million national impeachment campaign against President Trump.
Below is a screenshot of the email, published by WikiLeaks (click to enlarge):

The “walnut sauce” email senders/recipients are:

(1) Tom Steyer, 60, the cc recipient of the above email, is the billionaire Democrat who has launched a $20 million national campaign to impeach President Trump. In a televised video that you may have seen, Steyer calls President Trump “a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons,” who has taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war” and obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges. (See “Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer launches multi-million$ media campaign to impeach President Trump“)
Steyer’s impeachment campaign is doomed to failure because:

  • The Republican Party has a majority in both houses of Congress.
  • Even Democratic congressional leaders have shown no interest in impeaching Trump.
  • President Trump has neither committed nor been convicted of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” — the grounds for impeachment as specified in Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution.

Tom Steyer is also connected to Fusion GPS, the DC-based opposition research firm hired by Hillary Clinton and the DHS during the 2016 presidential campaign to find “dirt” on Donald Trump.
Steyer is said to be considering running for political office. In August 2015, he launched the Fair Shake Commission on Income Inequality and Middle Class Opportunity, purportedly an implicit announcement of candidacy for the 2018 California gubernatorial race. (Lots more on Steyer, the “green” or environmental hypocrite, here.)

(2) Jim Steyer, 61, the sender of the cryptic “walnut sauce” email, is the older brother of Tom Steyer. A child advocate, civil rights attorney, Stanford University professor and author, Jim Steyer is most known for founding Common Sense Media, an organization dedicated to improving media and entertainment lives for kids and families. (Wikipedia)
(3) John Podesta thought the cryptic “walnut sauce” email to be important enough as to forward it to his assistant, Eryn Sepp.
Seriously, why would very powerful and very busy men like Tom Steyer, Jim Steyer and John Podesta prattle on in email about “walnut sauce on pasta” and whether the “walnut sauce is very tasty”?
It is said that “walnut” is a pedophile code-word for a person of color, and “sauce” is a pedophile code-word for orgy. For more on these code-words, see “Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails”.
In a comment, a reader suggests another meaning for “walnut sauce”:

As you can see below, the human adrenal gland does resemble a walnut.

Billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer launches multi-million$ media campaign to impeach President Trump

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 14:32:50 +0000

eowyn2

As billionaire financier George Soros sinks $18 billion into his Open Society Foundation, thereby transforming it into one of the world’s largest charity political activist organizations, another billionaire Democrat, Tom Steyer, is launching a national campaign to impeach President Donald Trump, after only 9 months of presidency.

Thomas Fahr Steyer, 60, is the founder and former co-senior managing partner of Farallon Capital — a hedge-fund that manages $20 billion in capital for high-net-worth individuals and institutions that include college endowments and foundations. After retiring as manager of Farallon Capital in 2012, Steyer launched NextGen America, a political organization that supports leftist positions on climate change, immigration and health care, among other issues.

Born of a Jewish father and an Episcopalian mother, with a net worth estimated at $1.6 billion in 2016, Steyer has funneled millions of dollars into Democratic candidates and causes. He was environmental advisor to the Obama administration and is on the board of trustees of Stanford University, his MBA alma mater.

Jacob Pramuk reports for CNBC that Steyer began the “Need to Impeach” initiative on Friday with an ad calling on Americans to urge their members of Congress to vote President Trump out of office.

Need to Impeach said in a statement it would launch an “eight-figure” television ad purchase and a “seven-figure” digital buy.

In a video, Steyer called President Trump “a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons.” He accuses the president of taking the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war” and obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges.

Trump’s impeachment currently appears highly unlikely, given the Republican Party’s control of both chambers of Congress. Even Democratic congressional leaders have shown no interest in impeaching Trump, yet, despite Rep. Al Green‘s (D-Texas) introduction of articles of impeachment against Trump and a Democrat bill, HR 1987, to remove President Trump for ‘mental incompetence’.

According to Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Nothing that Tom Steyer gives as his reasons to impeach President Trump even remotely constitutes “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”. All of which points to Steyer’s irrationality. So if anyone should be accused of being “mentally unstable,” it is Thomas Fahr Steyer, not President Donald John Trump.

Steyer should look up the meaning of “sore loser” in the dictionary.

Facebook billionaire gives another $20M to defeat Donald Trump one month after donating $15M to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats

I quit Facebook two years ago. Don’t. Miss. It. At. All.

Dustin Moskovitz

Dustin Moskovitz


From Daily Mail: A billionaire Facebook founder has agreed to donate $20 million to defeat Donald Trump just weeks before the election.
Dustin Moskovitz, 32, announced his latest donation in a post he wrote for Medium earlier this month, stating: ‘The events of the past few weeks have only deepened my conviction that Hillary is the best choice for America. I hope that these contributions will help make that outcome a reality.’
Just one month prior, Moskovitz revealed in another Medium post that he has donated $15 million to help elect Clinton and other Democrats. But despite these staggering donations, many in the Democratic party know very little about Moskovitz, who is worth $10.7billion according to Forbes.
Moskovitz explained his reasons for supporting Clinton and his disdain for Trump in his September Medium post. ‘We cannot ignore the remarkable alignment between these two visions for society and the choices in this year’s election. The Republican Party, and Donald Trump in particular, is running on a zero-sum vision, stressing a false contest between their constituency and the rest of the world,’ wrote Moskovitz.
‘We believe their positions, especially on immigration, which purport to improve the lives of Americans, would in practice hurt citizens and noncitizens alike. In contrast, the Democratic Party, and Hillary Clinton in particular, is running on a vision of optimism, pragmatism, inclusiveness and mutual benefit.’
text

A vision of mutual benefit…


Moskovitz is not the only major Facebook employee to support Clinton during this election.  Chris Hughes and his husband Sean Eldridge held a fundraiser at their $5million Soho apartment for Clinton last year. Hughes is now worth an estimated $850 million and was the owner and publisher of The New Republic before selling the magazine this past February.
Half of the $20million Moskovitz and his wife, journalist Cari Tuna, are giving will go to the League of Conservation Voters and to a political action committee called For Our Future. The latter group is a get-out-the-vote effort in battleground states that is paid for primarily by labor unions and hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer (who funds the Black Lives Matter groups).
Moskovitz and Tuna also are giving directly to Clinton’s campaign and to party committees helping Senate and congressional Democrats.
Moskovitz became the youngest self-made billionaire in history when Facebook went public. He and Tuna, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, also recently joined forces to create the philanthropic organization Good Ventures. The couple live together near Silicon Valley.
‘As a nation, we need to figure out how to bring everyone with us, and we believe the Democratic platform currently is more aligned with ensuring that happens,’ wrote Moskovitz on Medium.
Hillary trying

Hillary trying to bring everyone with her…


‘In comparison, Donald Trump’s promises to this group are quite possibly a deliberate con, an attempt to rally energy and support without the ability or intention to deliver. His proposals are so implausible that the nation is forced to worry that his interest in the presidency might not even extend beyond winning a contest and promoting his personal brand.’
Politico reports that before this cycle, Moskovitz’s only recorded political donations had been $5,200 to the failed 2014 House bid of Eldridge in New York, who lost his race by 30 points.
Only Steyer has given more this year to Democrats, campaign finance records show. The Californian has put up almost $40 million so far, to promote environmental issues and help elect Clinton and other Democrats.  Steyer is worth far less than Moskovitz however, with a net worth of just $1.61billion.
Facebook investor Peter Thiel, who is also the founder of Paypal, has donated $1.25million to the campaign of Donald Trump.
