When his 2020 presidential campaign inevitably comes to a screeching halt, Rep. Eric Swalwell should have no problem securing a standing gig at “The Comedy Store.”

That doesn’t mean he’ll get laughs, no, but the dude is absolutely hilarious.

You’ll see…

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) had an awkward moment in Cedar Rapids on Sunday at the Iowa Democratic Party’s Hall of Fame event when he appeared to expect applause from the audience and didn’t get one.

WATCH:

LOL! Oh, Eric.

Swalwell just hand his “please clap” moment.

WATCH:

Not only is Swalwell radically far-left and anti-gun, but 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

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC) recently appeared on Fox News with Martha MacCallum to let every American know that Swalwell “scare the ever living hell out of you.”

He noted, “President Eric Swalwell, that ought to scare the ever-living Hell out of you, Martha.”

WATCH:

He added, “His last sentence is exactly the difference between a prosecutor and a politician. Prosecutors prove that you did something, politicians make you prove you did not. Did you hear his last sentence? ‘I challenge President Trump to prove that he did not do something.’ That’s what politicians do.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

on

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

Lebron james

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
