OPINION| Mark Sidney| Once again I will say it ‘when someone shows you who they are believe them.’
Do you remember last year when California Democrat Congressman and failed Presidential Candidate, Eric Swalwell suggested that civil war over resistance to gun confiscation by American gun owners was futile … because the United States Government has nuclear weapons.
‘In a tweet on 16 November, Swalwell responded to a gun rights enthusiast who said the Democrats’ proposal to confiscate or buy semi-automatic rifles would result in “war” due to resistance from the gun owners, stating “it would be a short war” because “the government has nukes.”‘
Here is the Tweet in question:
And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Now, of course Snopes shilled for the authoritarian tyrant, claiming that:
‘Swalwell quickly insisted that his reference to the government’s possession of nuclear weapons was intended as no more than a joke and emphasized that he was not warning gun owners about such a response to their (hypothetical) resistance to gun confiscation.’
You can make up your mind about what the true intention of the power crazed representative from Commiefornia really was.
To give you a little glimpse into the mind of the man who brings up the government’s nuclear arsenal during a debate about gun confiscation, take a look at this clip where Eric suggests that Trump may be impeached … again.
This time for weighing in on the travesty of justice that is the Roger Stone case:
Rep. Eric Swalwell says Democrats won’t take the option of impeaching President Trump again off the table.

Perhaps Mr. Swalwell should read the United States Constitution’s ARTICLE II, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 1:
The President…shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
So when the Democrats start getting on their high horse taking about ‘Democracy’ and the ‘rule of law’ you should know they have no interest in either of those things.
All they care about it power, how to get it and how to use it against people like you and I for their own gain.
We are entering a truly terrifying time in our nation’s history. When one of the men behind, what we believe to be, the coup to bring down Trump, Andrew McCabe, getting off scot free for his lies to federal law enforcement and Roger Stone, a victim of the very same staged coup being recommended a prison term of 9 years, it could never be more clear who is in control of the USG.
Hint: it is not ‘we, the people.’
