Eric Swalwell Trolls Tulsi Gabbard After She Announces She’s Leaving The Democratic Party

In a move that surprised absolutely no one, former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announced this morning that she has decided to leave the Democratic Party.

Gabbard made her declaration in a video and series of tweets in which she explained her decision.

I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party – which is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness. The Democrats of today divide us by racializing every issue, stoking anti-white racism, and are actively working to undermine our God-given freedoms enshrined in our Constitution.

The Democrats of today are hostile to people of faith and spirituality. They demonize the police and protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans. The Democrats of today believe in open borders and weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents. Above all else, the Democrats of today are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.

Safe to say the reaction by the vast majority of Democrats (probably 99.9%) is, Good riddance to bad Russian trash.

After all, this is the very same Tulsi Gabbard who has repeatedly spouted Kremlin talking points and was identified as a Russian asset by Hillary Clinton back in 2019:

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

And indeed, Gabbard has been a fervent fan of Russia and it’s murderous leader, Vladimir Putin, who invaded another sovereign nation and is now getting his ass kicked by Ukrainian military forces.

For example, consider this tweet from Gabbard shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine

“This war and suffering could have easily been avoided if Biden Admin/NATO had simply acknowledged Russia’s legitimate security concerns regarding Ukraine’s becoming a member of NATO, which would mean US/NATO forces right on Russia’s border.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said what needed to be said about Gabbard’s departure from the Democratic Party, trolling her and making it clear no one will miss her in the least.

Game, set, and match Eric Swalwell.

The GOP Is Preparing Its Base For More Political Violence: Report

On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on Fox News and declared that if disgraced former president Donald Trump is indicted by the Justice Department for hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort, there will be rioting in the streets as a result.

“I’ll say this: If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the Clinton debacle … there’ll be riots in the streets.”

Trump has also been calling for violence, urging FBI agents to “revolt” against the leadership of the Bureau in response to the search warrant served at his Palm Beach home three weeks ago.

What’s going on here? It’s all a part of laying the groundwork for more political violence like what we saw on January 6, 2021, according to MSNBC host Ari Melber, who warned on his show Monday:

“The wider context right now is the serious violence in our country. The ongoing surge in threats and attacks against the FBI including those fomented by Trump allies, including calls for a ‘civil war’ and ‘armed rebellion.’”

After playing clips of condemning the riots that took place in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, Melber noted that it’s clear members of the GOP are hypocrites:

“This is not a drill. You see the way they’re talking. You see how obviously hypocritical it is, how it goes to larger problems in their ability to function within a rule-of-law society we quality between all people and all races. This may get louder and more serious and more dangerous before we’re through with it.

“It’s what they do for a living.When people openly court violence to try to corrupt their investigations, well, this ain’t their first time. It might anger a prosecutor personally, though that’s never supposed to impact their independent legal decisions. But it certainly does not shock or scare them. They are trained to keep doing their job against exactly this kind of crap.”

Trump Releases Statement On VA Governor’s Race That May Doom The GOP Candidate

For months now, Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin has been trying to distance himself from failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump because he doesn’t want to be directly associated with a man as controversial and tarnished as the Donald.

And yet, on the eve of the election in the state, Trump decided he’d tie himself to Youngkin with a statement that could well doom the Republican when voters go to the polls tomorrow.

Politico reports that the Trump statement — released via his spokesperson — makes it clear that the ex-president sees Youngkin as a carbon copy of himself:

“The Fake News media, together with some of the perverts doing ads ad nauseam on primarily Fox (Fox shouldn’t take those ads!), are trying to create an impression that Glenn Youngkin and I are at odds and don’t like each other.

“Importantly, this is not true, we get along very well together and strongly believe in many of the same policies.”

That statement is exactly what Younkin’s Democratic opponent, Terry McAuliffe, has been saying for months now and reiterated shortly after Trump sent out his statement:

“Since launching his campaign, Glenn Youngkin has made it clear he is running for governor for one person and one person only: Donald Trump. Now, with less than 24 hours until Election Day, Trump is helping Glenn close his campaign and rewarding his total allegiance for the last eight months.”

Quite simply, Trump may have just doomed Glenn Youngkin. The election will likely come down to turnout, but Trump’s enthusiastic embrace of the Virginia Republican could turn off lots of independent voters who haven’t yet made up their minds about how they’ll cast their ballot on Tuesday.

If you watch election returns Tuesday evening, keep a close eye on Northern Virginia. That’s where Democrats get their biggest share of votes in the state, and that’s where Youngkin will probably come up short, if only by a few points.

But in a race as close as the one between Youngkin and McAuliffe, a few points may be the margin of victory. And having an albatross like Trump around your neck is not something any candidate wants the day before votes are cast.

McCarthy And Scalise Directly Implicated In The Plot To Overturn 2020 Election

The more we learn about the elaborate plan to make sure Donald Trump remained as president, the clearer it becomes that numerous individuals at various levels of the federal government were involved in an attempt to overturn the will of the voters and carry out a coup.

According to attorney Sidney Powell, both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) were part of the plot, which also involved a court challenge that would be heard by one of the most conservative justices on the Supreme Court, Samuel Alito.

Powell was a guest on “The Stew Peters Show,” and she revealed that McCarthy and Scalise had been tasked with denying Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from filing an amicus brief in the case which would have argued that the election was valid and should be certified by Congress:

“There had been inside goings-on in Congress whereby I believe it was Steve Scalise and McCarthy kept her from being an actual party. She wanted to work her way into the case, but somehow that didn’t happen. She got notice when we made our filing. She wanted to file an amicus brief, and then everything broke loose, and she had to speed up reconvening Congress to get the vote going before Justice Alito might issue an injunction.”

Powell even explained why Alito would be the judge in the case, which would eventually have been heard by the full Supreme Court if those loyal to Trump had been successful:

“Justice Alito was our circuit justice for that. And we were suing the vice president to follow the 12th Amendment as opposed to the Electoral College Act.”

Granted, Powell is not exactly the most reliable of sources considering the lies she’s already told about her role in the conspiracy to deny Joe Biden the presidency. But her accusations can easily be confirmed by a close look at both McCarthy and Scalise’s phone and email records. Those have been subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.

Records from the Trump administration will also soon be in the hands of the House committee because President Joe Biden has made it clear he will not cite executive privilege to keep them hidden. Those, combined with the records from members of Congress who coordinated with Trump and his associates, will provide concrete proof of who was involved in the conspiracy.

Powell’s remarks are also more evidence that can be used by the Justice Department to charge those involved with federal crimes, including election interference and sedition.

Every single person who tried to keep Trump in office is part of a criminal conspiracy. They need to be charged, prosecuted, and given long sentences if they’re found guilty. That’s how we protect our republic and send a message to anyone who might think of trying something like this in the future.

Going Down: GOP Support For Trump To Be 2024 Nominee Plummets 24%

Despite the fact that most Republican political figures continue to kowtow to failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, it turns out that many GOP voters don’t think the disgraced former chief executive would help them retake the White House.

A new poll from CNN has bad news for Trump as he flirts with running again in 2024:

“Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say, 63% to 37%, that Trump should be the leader of the Republican Party. But they are about evenly split over whether having the defeated former President back on the ticket in 2024 would be an advantage: 51% say that Republicans have a better chance of retaking the presidency if Trump is the nominee, with 49% saying the party would be better off with a different nominee. That’s a very different landscape from 2019 when more than three-quarters of Republicans said their party had a better shot in 2020 with Trump as their nominee than they would with a different candidate.”

The numbers are even worse for Trump among college educated voters and independents. Independent voters broke for Trump in 2016 but abandoned him four years later, casting their ballots for President Joe Biden:

“Trump’s support isn’t equally distributed throughout the party: 69% of Republicans without a college degree think Trump should head the party, compared with 49% of those who hold a college degree. A 72% majority of conservatives say Trump should head the party, compared to 49% among the smaller bloc of moderates in the party. And 71% of self-identified Republicans want Trump to lead the party, compared with 51% of Republican-leaning independents who say the same.”

Those numbers don’t bode well for Trump or the GOP, according to a panel of experts who appeared on “Inside Politics” Sunday, with CNN analyst Jeff Zeleny noting:

“That is fascinating there and not a good trajectory and what has happened during this period? Former president Trump has been sticking his head up more and been more active– not like he’s sitting on the sidelines. This isn’t happening in a vacuum. As I travel around the country and talk with Republicans and voters and other rank and file folks, there is, even among Trump supporters, not a lot of unanimity about they want him to come back.”

That led CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins to add:

“You wonder if it only goes down further what does it change going forward. Part of it said that 58% of the Republicans without a college degree thought their chances would be better with Trump. But when you ask college grads, only 34% thought they would be better with Trump as the leader.”

Zeleny agreed, concluding:

“We’re seeing a delicate dance here and everyone waiting for him to disappear. The former president says he keeps teasing he’s going to have an announcement shortly — I don’t think it’s coming shortly at all. He’s going to draw that out in the next season perhaps. But this is not necessarily great news for Donald Trump, especially that declining number — that’s a fascinating number.”

Sounds like many in the Republican Party know that Trump is a loser. And with legal problems piling up against him, even if he does decide to run again, he could be doing so while under indictment, which isn’t exactly going to draw independent voters to him.
