Rep. Swalwell's new book is part tribute, part impeachment memoir

Original post made on Feb 25, 2020

It’s a shame Congressman, that you have the time to write a book when Veterans/Veterans wives have to deal with the garbled mess of ink that continues to find its way into our homes to deal with our mothers and fathers way of life to survive. The children are tired of your negligence in assisting to straighten out the direct impact of those in the Veterans Administration who are negligent themselves who purposely provide smeared forms and lack of direction. Your timing of book says it all for your priorities.

Where do you think this will debut on the NY Times Best Seller List? I wonder if Costco will carry it?

I see the Pleasanton Weekly appears to be Eric’s (Russia, Russia, Russia) advertising agency. This man, to include his mentor-Adam Schiff- have done more to tear this country apart, continue their efforts in acting as a tool for the Russian government, and lastly, aid Eric in making money. Enough with this guy. Stop giving him support and accolades. Try to have a modicum of legitimacy toward journalism.

Now we know why he did not write a book about his accomplishments in the House for the past two years....It would be a book will blank pages. Good thing for him that he has a government job. In the private/corporate environment he would be shown the door. Time to clean house.

Eric can write, I thought he could only mouth Nancy’s words on TV.

Now he will be known as “Former Failed Presidential Candidate and Failed Author”!

Wonderful! Eric Swalwell, the village idiot, has written a book about the left-wing loons in Congress attempting to impeach a duly elected President on trumped-up charges. This action was basically a coup attempt, because the left-wing loons know they have no candidates that can defeat President Trump. Just how low can the Bay Area sink until it wakes up and replaces the entire Bay Area Congressional delegation? The 2018 left-wing-loon Congress has accomplished absolutely nothing, and has harmed the United States. Pelosi and Swalwell personify the rot.

Two quick thoughts

One, holy cow I miss Pete Stark

Two, a whole lot of trivalley voters have shown themselves to be either fools or uninformed voters and they will continue to show this via re-electing this disgrace of a congressperson.

Eric Swalwell is an embarrassment to Dublin and to California. We didn't elect him as a congressman to spend every waking hour on a crusade to impeach our President. The fact that he started writing this book 2 years ago is a perfect example of how bent he is on this quest. He constantly spews out hateful prattle about the President of the United States. He comes across as a complete bully and models terrible behavior for our kids to witness. Very, very sad.

Well, Party before Representative of those who elected him, passes gas on national TV, and like others have said, an embarrassing representative of all CALIFORNIANS. To those calling some HATERS posting here, just what has he accomplished of merit? I really dislike Congressional Members that put Pelosi in front of us, as it shows the true colors of NOT representing the District. Just another one in for the the free ride me thinks. But what I am really looking forward to is the book Fiction or Non-Fiction? My guess, a Best Seller in the .99 cent clearance bin.......

Trump gets things done. The left invents things to blame on him because they have nothing to bring to the party but hate and lies. They lost the election, they have been wrong about almost every topic, they have done nothing but spend tax payer money inventing allegations that when actually examined have no merit. Stop being the resistance and start being an American. It's disgusting.

This is not my rumor.
It is what I received in an email.

"Election officials whom are democratic elected officials with their nepotism employees, are taking republican ballots that they judge to have irregular signature and trashing them".

Democratic ballots with irregular signatures are accepted.

The problem here is, republican ballots are voting NO on measure M and NO all other new tax increase measures.
