About those DOJ subpoenas of Schiff’s and Swalwell’s records

Featured image The New York Times has reported that during a Justice Department investigation into who was leaking classified information about the Russia “collusion” matter early in the Trump presidency, prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. The House Dems were Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell. Democrats and their media partners are outraged. Should they be? It »

Swalwell Sues [with comment by Paul]

Featured image The Democrats intend to ride the mini-riot at the Capitol on January 6 for all it is worth. One aspect of their strategy is lawsuits by people like Eric Swalwell. Swalwell has sued President Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Congressman Mo Brooks for, among other things, intentional infliction of emotional distress. Is there any chance the rest of us can sue Swalwell for the emotional distress he has »

Swalwell’s swill

Featured image Tucker Carlson’s monologue last night drew attention to the Axios story on the Chinese spy who infiltrated California politics until she fled back to her homeland. The spy not only infiltrated Rep. Eric Swalwell’s network, she may have shared his bed, or so we can infer from Swalwell’s assertion that the response to the question whether she did may be “classified.” Axios seems to have missed that aspect of the »

Trump DOJ sought records of Trump White House counsel

Featured image Former White House counsel Don McGahn and wife have been notified by Apple that the Trump Justice Department requested information on them in 2018. So reports the Washington Post. It’s not clear what the DOJ was investigating that led to the request. Nor is it clear whether its investigators were targeting McGahn or just came across his name while viewing the records of others. McGahn figured in Robert Mueller’s investigation. »

Where have you gone?

Featured image (Former) President Trump left office in due course, yet the Senate is set to take up his second impeachment trial this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). The first item on the trial schedule is debate over the constitutionality of trial of a former president. Byron York reviewed the issue of constitutionality in his Daily Memo yesterday. The correct answer is “no.” After the arguments, the Senate will vote on whether »

It’s not easy being Greene

Featured image The House — i.e., House Democrats joined by 11 Republicans, on a near party-line vote — removed Republican outlier Marjorie Taylor Greene from the committees to which she had been assigned. The AP story on the vote is here. Condemning the remarks that have brought Greene into disrepute, Senator Tom Cotton commented further on yesterday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow: “Make no mistake, plenty of »

Today’s Flashpoint: Marjorie Taylor Greene

Featured image In November, the previously unknown Marjorie Taylor Greene was elected to Georgia’s open 14th Congressional District seat in a landslide. Now, after being in office less than a month, she is the object of a hate campaign by the Democrats, who are demanding that she be stripped of all committee assignments, and preferably kicked out of the House. It is reported that the Democrats’ press arm is trying to make »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Events this week have somehow prompted Ammo Grrrll to provide A HISTORY LESSON ABOUT CADAVERS. She writes: I am completing this column on Tuesday night, to be sent off early Wednesday morning for editing. So if there has been a major development with the massive military presence in Washington, or if The Big Guy calls the oath-giver a Dog-Faced Pony Soldier, bites Dr. Jill’s finger again, or sniffs a random »

The impeachment express rolls on

Featured image Democrats and their media complex have sought to remove President Trump from office since the day he became president. The day before yesterday the pretext was the Russia hoax. It was a day that lasted three long years, but put that to one side. Yesterday it was the Ukraine piffle (as Michael Goodwin calls it) and impeachment, round 1. Today, as Trump’s term in office comes to a close, it »

“You only Fang twice”

Featured image Filling in for Tucker Carlson last night, Mark Steyn was in rare form as he reviewed the matter of Eric Swalwell’s enmeshment with the Chinese spy. Bearing as it does on China and the Democrats and national security, it’s an important story. We have attended to the story several times, but without the epic mockery of Steyn’s classic style. Via Doug P./Twitchy. My goodness this @MarkSteynOnline riff on @EricSwalwell is »

More than a woman, cont’d

Featured image Maria Bartiromo interviewed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy yesterday on Sunday Morning Futures just after I posted “More than a woman.” Angelica Stabile covers the interview in the Fox News story “McCarthy after FBI briefing: ‘No way’ Swalwell should serve on intel committee.” In this interview McCarthy is even more emphatic about the unfitness of Eric Swalwell to serve on the House Intelligence Committee than in the interview I posted. »

More than a woman

Featured image It seems obvious that Rep. Eric Swalwell had an intimate relationship with the Chinese Communist spy Fang Fang, who helped him launch his congressional career. According to Swalwell, the answer to the question whether he was sleeping with her might be “classified.” That’s what he told Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Classified” by whom, he didn’t say. When Axios came calling on its story revealing Fang Fang’s penetration into the network of »

The Week in Pictures: Timeout Edition

Featured image I was going to call this week’s gallery the “Swallowing Swalwell Edition,” because who doesn’t love a great sex scandal involving foreign spies? But then Time magazine gave its “Person of the Year” designation to two people, Biden and Harris. Is this a subtle acknowledgement that together they might add up to one person, or at least one brain? If so they’re still short at least one frontal cortex, and »

Today’s California Energy Embarrassment

Featured image Yesterday we noted the embarrassment announced in understated fashion by the U.S. Department of Energy that California imported 25 percent of its electricity in 2019. It seems almost as if someone at the very excellent Energy Information Administration has a thing about California’s silliness, because today’s EIA “Today in Energy” brief has another understated but devastating smackdown for California’s energy pretensions. In one sentence, today’s brief essentially says, “Without lots »

Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Featured image For now, Ted Cruz gets the last word on the Eric Swalwell fiasco: More than once, I’ve said “screw the Chinese communists.” Little did I know how closely Swalwell was listening. — Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 10, 2020 »

Swill this

Featured image The story of the Chinese Mata Hari who embedded herself in Rep. Eric Swalwell’s world — emphasis on bed — is impacting, as Drudge used to put it. The New York Post reports, for example: “Swalwell mum on sex with China spy, but family remains Facebook friends with honeytrap.” Swalwell was of course a prime retailer of the Russia hoax and the impeachment farce over the past four years. The »

The China Factor

Featured image On Monday evening, Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue related to a speech given by a Chinese academic named Di Dongsheng. Di is the Vice Dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University and the Vice Director and Secretary of the Center for Foreign Strategic Studies of China. Carlson’s monologue is lightly re-worked as an op-ed here. Di’s lecture, to a Chinese audience, discussed Chinese-American relations. Tucker quoted some passages »
