Three extremist Democrats, Reps. Adam Schiff, Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell, are being removed from their congressional committee assignments by Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who as leader of the new GOP majority in the House is keeping campaign promises.
The Gateway Pundit reported McCarthy confirmed this week the Democrats “will not be serving on the committees they served on previously.”
The report noted the reasons: “Eric Swalwell famously had a relationship with Chinese spy Fang Fang. Ilhan Omar broke federal immigration laws when she married her brother. Adam Schiff is a serial liar and a favorite of the far-left mainstream media.”
Schiff and Swalwell had been on the House Intelligence Committee and Omar was on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She insisted she should be allowed to stay on the panel because she is “African.”
McCARTHY confirms Swalwell, Schiff & Omar will be off committees they’d previously served: intel/foreign affairs.
“Swalwell can’t get a security clearance in the private sector. I’m not going to give him a government security clearance. Schiff has lied to the American public…”

According to a report at the U.K.’s Daily Mail, “The move is likely payback for former Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stripping GOP Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar from their committee assignments during the 117th Congress.”

Under previous operating standards, Democratic Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries would offer those names as nominees to be on the various committees and McCarthy would approve.
However, McCarthy already has pointed out that Swalwell “can’t get a security clearance in the private sector” and Schiff has “lied too many times to the American public.”
Schiff, in fact, was one of the major players in former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s multiple failed campaigns to impeach and remove President Trump from office. He claimed he had seen evidence of the Trump 2016 campaign’s “collusion” with Russia, even though that now-debunked conspiracy scheme was cooked up by Democrats and used faked evidence in court.
McCarthy explained the new process: “Remember, this is what Nancy Pelosi – this is the type of Congress she wanted to have.”
Swalwell earned his reputation for controversy by accepting help from a Chinese spy named Fang Fang to raise money for his campaign. The report said he “remained friends with her on Facebook long after a FBI briefing on her ties to China.”
Omar has shared a number of anti-Semitic comments.
The Daily Mail documented, “McCarthy has been vowing since 2021 to block Swalwell, Schiff and Omar from spots on the Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees.”
Earlier, Democrats had attacked Green over comments made before she entered Congress. Gosar similarly was accused of improper comments on social media.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
