Congressman Eric Swalwell is one of the most cringeworthy politicians in D.C.
Between his infamous “Fartwell” segment and the Chinese Comunnist spy mistress Ling Ling, it’s hard to believe he could make himself look any worse.
But the “star” Democrat Congressman got called out for his party’s biggest clown show moment yet.
No! It was a chair moving
Many forget that before the corporate-controlled press completely buried Rep. Eric Swalwell’s (D-CA) open sexual relationship with a Chinese spy, they tried to tell Americans that “Fartwell” didn’t fart during an interview with Chris Matthews on MSNBC.

Now Swalwell is looking like a clown once again thanks to his states’ biggest failure to date and his own mouth.
The California Congressman attempted to dunk on the state of Texas, and it was a miserable fail.
After a rare blackout warning in Texas, Swalwell wrote on Twitter, “Texas. Where Republicans provide plenty of energy to control your body, but no energy to control your thermostat.”
And now California is in the throes of one of its many energy crises.
Swalwell tweeted, “It’s time to rally, California! We all need to do our part to help avoid power outages this week. Before 4 p.m., pre-cool your home. After 4 p.m., avoid use of major appliances and turn your thermostat to 78 or higher. Let’s keep the lights on, California.”

Swalwell went from ragging on Texas to begging Californians to keep the lights on in under two months.
Governor Gavin Newsom, who has been busy picking fights with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in order to raise his national profile, also begged Californians to conserve energy.
It is Summer
Newsom said, “[California] is experiencing an unprecedented heatwave. This will be the hottest & longest on record for September. Our energy grid is being pushed to its max. The risk of outages is real. We need everyone to double down to save energy after 4pm today.”

California is attempting to be a trendsetter for the country in its “green” revolution, but reality keeps getting in the way.
Ironically, electric vehicles are contributing to the problem.
The Daily Wire reported that “the western United States is facing ‘dangerous heat’ and a high risk of fires, according to a report from the National Weather Service. As a result, officials in California have issued several warnings and reminders urging residents to voluntarily decrease power usage during peak demand hours. Among other measures, the state asked citizens last week to avoid ‘charging electric vehicles’ — a request that raised eyebrows due to the announcement of an upcoming ban on new gas-powered cars released days earlier. The California Air Resources Board issued new rules requiring 35% of new vehicles to produce zero emissions by 2026 — a standard that will rise to a 68% benchmark by 2030 and a 100% benchmark by 2035.”
So the power grid, which runs on fossil fuels, is being strained by electric vehicles, and Democrats want to phase out gas-powered cars as well as fossil fuels and nuclear power.
It’s about control
The Democrats’ green boondoggle is utter nonsense.
Electric vehicles are plagued by constant battery fires.
Solar panels on the roofs of homes that have them have been catching on fire too.
And more stuff catching things on fire is the last thing California needs.
But the politicians don’t care about that.
They care about control.
And the whole “Green” push is nothing if not nakedly about centralizing control of the economy.
