Eric Swalwell Verbally Drags Jim Jordan And Twitter Can’t Stop Cheering

The House Judiciary Committee was in session today, and it’s safe to bet that its chairman, Ohio Republican Jim Jordan, probably wishes it hadn’t been, because he got called out for his hypocrisy and humiliated by committee member Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).

During the hearing, Jordan issued subpoenas in connection with an investigation he and Republicans on the committee are conducting into the Department of Justice and FBI, both of which they claim have been “weaponized” since Joe Biden became president, as Axios reported earlier this week.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) — facing criticism that his probe of alleged mistreatment of conservatives by “weaponized” U.S. agencies has moved too slowly and found little — is threatening to subpoena 16 more witnesses from the FBI.

Swalwell told Ben Cline (R-VA) of the Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Responsiveness and Accountability To Oversight that he found it incredibly ironic Jordan would dare to issue subpoenas when the Ohio Republican had refused to comply with a subpoena from the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.

“I think it’s quite rich that we are talking about subpoena compliance under a chairman of the full committee who was absolutely out of subpoena compliance in the last congress.”

The California Democrat was just getting warmed up, however, adding, “So we’re gonna call witnesses in here today and claim that they did not comply with subpoenas or requests, and that request is so rich because it’s coming from a chairman who himself did not comply with the January six committees request.”

Directing his next comments directly at Jordan, Swalwell continued.

“You were a witness to a crime. You were a witness to the greatest crime ever committed with the most criminals ever indicted in America. Will you help your country? Will you comply with that subpoena?

“No compliance. Crickets. Absolute defiance of a subpoena. And because of that defiance, the chairman was referred – and still pending – to the House Ethics Committee.”

Swawell ended his comments with this flourish:

“So this our chairman, hauling all us here, everyone here today. People at the Department of Justice, the Department of Education – who are doing important work – to claim they are out of compliance when he himself is currently out of compliance.”

Twitter users gave Swalwell a social media standing ovation and took turns mocking Jordan.

Katie Porter Swats Down Lauren Boebert During Hearing On Federal Workers: VIDEO

Bless her moronic little heart, Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert simply cannot understand the easiest of topics, so it should come as no surprise she wound up monumetally confused during a hearing on federal workers today in the House of Representatives

During a House Oversight hearing, Boebert claimed that 20 to 30% of federal workers didn’t log into work “on any given day” between March and December of 2020. According to Boebert, her “facts” came from a leaked memo. She then suggested that federal employees no longer have to report vacations as time off from work and could conceivably claim to be working remotely from home “while at a swim-up bar in Cabo.”

Kiran Ahuja, Director of the Office of Personnel Management, was the witness appearing before the committee, and she made it clear the agency hasn’t made any changes that would allow employees to not report their work vs. vacation time.

Despite that assurance, Boebert angrily insisted that she had evidence proving 25% of federal workers never log into their worksite:  “It’s in this leaked document!”

Once more, Director Ahuja denied such a thing was true:

“You’re citing what was happening in the last administration, and I can’t speak to that particular incident.”

Boebert inquired, “Do you not oversee those agencies?”

The director explained that the Office of Personnel Management oversees “personnel policies” and isn’t aware of what takes place inside individual agencies.

Finally, mercifully, Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) joined the conversation and tried to enlighten the perpetually confused Ms. Boebert.

“I just want to flag for everyone here, that VPN (virtual private network) and using VPN login as a way to measure employee engagement and productivity is notoriously inaccurate and misleading. It does not necessarily reflect an employee’s access to their email internet, they can be working on Microsoft Word, drafting a document, they can be in Excel putting in data without being connected to the internet at all.”

Did Boebert understand that explanation? Probably not, which proves yet again that idiots and morons should never ever be elected to public office, and if they are, should never ever be allowed to serve on any committee.

Here’s the video of Boebert proving her stupidity for all the world to see:

MT Greene Whines She Was ‘Attacked’ By An ‘Insane’ Woman And Gets Reminded Of Her Own Disgusting Behavior

Karma paid a visit to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and she decided she’d share the details with the internet in search of sympathy, but instead she got reminded of her own hateful actions.

Greene complained about an incident she claims took place at a restaurant.

“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son. They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views. They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control. I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons. People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone.”

Of course, this is the very same Marjorie Taylor Greene who screamed “liar!” at President Joe Biden during his State of the Union Address earlier this month.

Greene has also been known to confront and attack anyone who disagrees with her on the issue of guns and gun control, going so far as to stalk and harass mass shooting survivor David Hogg.

More recently, Greene has called for a “national divorce” that would split the United States into red and blue states, suggesting that such a plan is the only way to avoid a second civil war.

Twitter users slammed Greene for her whining and reminded her of her own disgusting behavior over the years.

GOP Congresswoman: Matt Gaetz Wanted To Be Here Tonight ‘But He Couldn’t Find A Babysitter – To Be His Date’

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) was in rare form Wednesday evening at the annual Washington Press Club Foundation Congressional Dinner, making brutal jokes about Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, disgraced former president Donald Trump, and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who has been accused of sexually trafficking an underage girl.

Mace began by poking fun at McCarthy and Trump, making reference to all of the compromises and other concessions the Speaker had to make just to win his job.

“I haven’t seen someone assume that many positions to appease the crazy Republicans since Stormy Daniels.”

But it was what Mace said about Gaetz that drew the most laughter.

“Well, let’s be honest. We all knew that Matt Gaetz would never let the (Speaker’s) vote get to 18.
“I do have a message from Matt this evening. He really, really wanted to be here tonight, but he couldn’t find a babysitter to be his date.”

The South Carolina Republican even managed to joke about her party’s participation in the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection, telling those gathered at the dinner:

“In closing, with all the media in the room tonight, I want you to know I take nothing you write about me seriously or personally. I used to work at a Waffle House, and whatever you dish out, I’ve dished out far, far worse. And I know everyone thinks Republicans aren’t funny, but if you get a bunch of us together, we can be a real riot.”

This isn’t the first time Mace has laid a burn on Gaetz. Just last month, she had to say:

“Matt Gaetz is a fraud. Every time he voted against Kevin McCarthy last week he sent out a fundraising email. What you saw last week was a constitutional process diminished by those kinds of political actions. I don’t support that kind of behavior.”

Democratic Strategist James Carville Slams Marjorie Taylor Greene And The GOP As ‘White Trash’

Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville has had enough of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and her ilk, especially in light of their infantile jeering at this year’s State of the Union Address, telling MSNBC host Ari Melber that Greene and those like her are “white trash.”

“Well, you know, I told people I have a PhD in white trashology, you saw real white trash on display. Let me say something about congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. She dresses like white trash. She really needs a fashion consultant. I recommend George Santos. He could do a good job of dressing up where she doesn’t announce her white trashdom by her own clothes.”

Carville then took a flamethrower to the entire GOP:

“First of all, their lust for cutting Social Security and Medicare is well documented. Newt Gingrich shut the government down and got defeated in the end. We know that George W. Bush tried to privatize Social Security and Medicare. we know when Paul Ryan was Speaker and John Boehner — they did everything they could to cut Social Security and Medicare. We know that that is their objective.”

The Republican Party, Carville added, is trashy:

“President Joe Biden is 1000% right on this, and he’s right to press ahead, and I thought he had a great night last night. It’s just — the level of white trashdom in the Republican Party is staggering. I mean, for somebody that has observed it for a long time, like I have, I’ve never seen it manifest itself on a level that it’s manifesting itself.”

Before the interview ended, Carville also singled out Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert:

“You cannot do anything to have low-quality people — Lauren Boebert met her husband when — allegedly according to the police report, he exposed himself to her at a bowling alley. This is not made-up stuff. This is who they are! And even McCarthy, as gutless and spineless as he is, knew that they walked right into the trap. It’s unbelievable.”
