The first of many Democrat presidential candidates to drop from the race did so on Monday afternoon.

This guy never stood a chance.

He probably only would’ve been asked one or two questions at the next debate.

California Rep. Eric Swalwell on Monday dropped out of the race for his party’s presidential nomination, becoming the first of what is expected to be many Democrats to give up their presidential aspirations as the crowded field winnows down.

Swalwell, who in recent polls failed to garner even one percent among Democratic primary and caucus voters, said he was abandoning his presidential run in favor of focusing on getting reelected to House of Representatives.

Swalwell noted, “Being honest with ourselves, we had to look at how much money we were raising and where we were in the polls. We have to be honest about our candidacy.

He said, “Today ends our presidential campaign, but it is the beginning of a new opportunity in Congress.

Failing to endorse another candidate, Swalwell jokingly added, “If Megan Rapinoe gets in the race, I’ll probably endorse her.

Not only is Eric radically far-left and anti-gun but he literally has no clue what he’s talking about on most occasions.

Here’s just the latest example…

From Daily Wire:

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is not known for showcasing his intelligence, and Wednesday was no exception. The high-profile Democrat and 2020 presidential contender took to Twitter to pander to women by complaining that the United States Constitution doesn’t have one use of the word “woman” in it.

His tweet:

Do you know how many times the word “Woman” is mentioned in the Constitution?

Zero.

That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected. #ERANow

Here’s the problem, Eric…

Yeah, except the Constitution also doesn’t include the word “man.” So instead of scoring points with women, all Swalwell managed to do was prove that he hasn’t read the Constitution and was too lazy to do a little fact-checking before firing off the tweet.

Eric got throttled:

Do you know how many times the word “Man” is mentioned in the Constitution?

Zero.

There’s dumb and then there’s “can’t read or use CTRL+F before tweeting” dumb.

This is the most @ericswalwell-y tweet I’ve seen in weeks.

Eric Swalwell is like a cartoony feminist side character in an old sitcom.

And here’s the winning tweet. This one TAKES THE CAKE…

WORDS IN CONSTITUTION

❌ woman

❌ man

❌ fair / fair share

❌ abortion

❌ health / healthcare

✅ arms

NY Times Forced To Make Massive Correction On Kavanaugh Story Over Factual Omission

Shame, shame.

Published

on

Folks on the left tend to view the New York Times as a bastion of journalistic integrity, but the fact is, this couldn’t be further from the truth, especially over the last several years that Trump has been in office. The NY Times is nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Democratic Party, helping to pump up the progressive agenda and force feed it into the mushy brains of a readership who refuse to think for themselves and do due diligence to see both sides of the important issues facing our country. The latest example of this is the major correction the publication was forced to make to a story about the latest Brett Kavanaugh accusations. The reason for the correction is that the story withheld exculpatory information. via TheBlaze: The supposed bombshell story reported new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. According to the story, Kavanaugh once pulled down his pants at a Yale party and “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.” However, the story omitted a key fact relevant to the story’s credibility: The alleged victim does not remember the incident. “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” the Times said in a correction. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.” https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1173432452435644416 The correction was only made after Mollie Hemingway, writer for The Federalist, highlighted the omission of this key fact, having obtained an early copy of the…

Teacher Under Investigation After Telling Students VP Pence Should Be ‘Shot In The Head’

So much for tolerance.

Published

on

One of the things we constantly hear from the radical left is about how we all need to be tolerant of folks who are different from us, which sounds like a lovely little platitude. However, it’s not one the left actually takes and applies to real life, especially for folks who are on the right side of the political spectrum. A good case in point is the tale of a North Carolina high school teacher who is now under investigation after telling students that Vice President Mike Pence “should be shot in the head.” Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies and make you yearn for unity and harmony? via TheBlaze: The teacher — who works at Cuthbertson High School in Waxhaw — allegedly made the comment the same week Pence was in the area to campaign for Republican Dan Bishop, WJZY-TV reported. Bishop, a state senator, won a special election Tuesday for North Carolina’s congressional seat. The Union County Sheriff’s Office told WJZY it passed the information along to the Secret Service to investigate. The station referred to the teacher in question as a female but said it wasn’t naming the teacher. Parents are rightfully furious over this teacher’s statements to the students, even those who aren’t fans of Pence like Firas Obeid, who is the father of two students attending the school. “Affiliation to a specific party does not entitle us to make statement like that to anyone,” Obeid said. So what did the school district say about the incident? They released the following statement: “Union County Public Schools is aware of the allegation of inappropriate comments made by a Cuthbertson High School teacher. District administrators are taking this allegation seriously and an investigation is being conducted. This is a personnel matter and information related to…
