Eric Swalwell Recast As Santa Days After Voting Against Unemployment Benefits

CONGRESS | 15TH DISTRICT | Since the first time most of heard of Eric Swalwell, a Dublin council member in his early 30s without a scent of achievement in government, he has received exorbitant amounts of positive press from the local corporate media. His ethical lapses, conversely, are totally ignored. The San Francisco Chronicle, Bay Area News Group and the array of television newscast are funded by moderate conservative companies. The intersection of them and Swalwell is a comfortable coalition of center-right entities with similar goals. Both attempt to prosper in one of the most liberal regions in America, while concealing their ideological bent. The corporate media does it well with copious amounts of crime stories that at first glance purport to be news. In fact, these are news stories, but the sheer numbers of them also function to scare the public and warp the reality of the scene on our streets. These same groups mobilized the public to fall hard against a group of BART employees making a fairly mundane wage.

Now, these same media groups are again conspiring to re-elect Swalwell. The Chronicle’s entirely inappropriate cheerleading by political columnist Carla Marinucci last year, may in fact, be the only reason Swalwell upset Pete Stark in 2012. Her incessant stories characterizing Stark as out of touch and nowhere to be scene was an outright lie. Coincidentally, the strategy perfectly matched Swalwell’s own campaign tagline. When Stark alleged the Chronicle’s conservative columnist Debra Saunders contributed to Swalwell’s campaign, the comments were factual incorrect, but the gist of the sentiment appeared to be true, like many things Ol’ Pete said of his young opponent. The Chronicle was in the bag for Swalwell and the corporate media is readying another winning campaign next year.

Over the weekend, KTVU ran a story featuring Swalwell volunteering at a Christmas tree stand in Dublin. The lead-in to the story already felt like a spot prepared by the Swalwell campaign. In it, the anchor suggests most congressman are out of touch with the common man, but not Swalwell, who clad in a Santa hat, is readily available to help you choose the perfect tree and even trim the trunk. However, Swalwell’s vote last week to deny unemployment benefits to over 1.3 million Americans also trims quite a bit from the East Bay’s least fortunate.


The meme of Eric the Grinch stealing money from the poor just as they struggle to not only eat , but to put a little something in their family’s stocking was never mentioned on the KTVU newscast, even though it only occurred three days before. Whether complicit or not, these stories amount to in-kind donations to the Re-Elect Swalwell for Congress Committee. Rumors in the district abound that Swalwell possesses an internal poll showing his re-election may be in trouble. Those rumors cannot be confirmed. Yet, the subject of his campaign’s door-to-door canvassing suggest it is a good bet his polling showed a large number of constituents have no idea who he is. How does he turn those numbers around? Showing up on the local news playing the man of the people does the trick. Make no mention he was doing it in Dublin, the richest city in Alameda County.

I'll vote for the congressman. Gets good stuff done.

Normal politicians pose at Christmas tree lots with their wife and children. This one has to act like he's doing hard labor. That's his problem. It's all an act.

Who the hell are you to say who is 'normal?'

Go back down your chimney and into your cellar. You are no class act. That's for sure.

We love our congressman!

11:36, your love to your congressman is undeniable though he has not done a thing for everyone. He might bring your Christmas tree soon and asking for more campaign money, BTW.
That is as a class act for sure in your eyes, right!!

Eric did nothing on the Dublin City Council but sell out to the developers. So far in Congress he has done even less. He has not authored one piece of legislation that has become law.

Live in the valley and the above post is so true! Look at the picture with the article----it says it all. Omg-lol

Eric voted against extending unemployment compensation could very well be his undoing-I am sure ellen will hit on this and make it a big issue-what the heck was his reasoning? By the way, chronicle reporting is reason why I wrote my op-ed on Stark. Marunicci told me she never knew Pete did the things I noted in my piece. Last week I did not think Ellen had a chance to beat Swalwell, but now, she has a great opportunity to defeat him-I now assume labor will be in Ellen's camp-Tony Santos

Right, Tony.

And next week you'll be for the man in the moon. Really fickle.

We love our congressman, and he'll be back for sure. No need to lose any sleep over it.

Well, one person on here definitely likes Swalwell, but the rest of us will be voting for Ellen. I agree with Tony.

" These same groups mobilized the public to fall hard against a group of BART employees making a fairly mundane wage."

Mundane wages?

Does that count their Gold plated benefit package?
That bumps their average compensation package up to about $120,000 a year.

Yes yes, management is even higher, we know that.

Swalwell caters to Republicans and will continue to cater to Republicans in his hopes to be re-elected.

Wake up progressives .. you really want this DINO to represent our community?

Yes, WE really want him, which is why we elected him in the first place. He will be re-elected, and it won't even be close.

Get ready to be kicked to the curb, where you belong. It's a new 15th congressional district. Get used to it or move.

My wife and I voted for Eric last year but this next year will vote for Ellen Corbett. Eric has done absolutely nothing meaningful in Congress since he's been there. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

"Get ready to be kicked to the curb, where you belong. It's a new 15th congressional district. Get used to it or move."

Thanks for the poster board material! Democrats will use it and romp all over Swalwell.

Demos outnumber Reps by 80,000 in your new district. They will coalesce around the true progressive Ellen Corbett!

Absolutely, radical.

Our congressman is a TRUE mainstream Democrat who best represents OUR interests. He will be back in a landslide for sure.

In the meantime, being a sport, I'll help you pack your bags and move you to Berkeley where you belong. That is your reservation of sorts.

Getting ready to kick you to the curb. Don't have the patience or interest to take prisoners.

The only ones that will be kicked to the curb will be the Swalwell staffers who post on this blog.

I don't care how much money your boss raises from mega-corporations that stick it to the poor and middle-class, Ellen Corbett will win because she cares about the disappearance of the middle class in America.

Down with Swalwell and up with Ellen Corbett in 2014.

I look at the picture at the start of your article with a Santa hat and beard and have to laugh. I's hilarious and reminds me of Dukakis when he was in the tank with the Army hat on. Both Swalwell and Dukakis had not a clue and are like cats caught in the headlights thinking what do I do now. Swalwell is so lost and inexperienced without a clue. It's Ellen Corbett next year for my family and friends because we can't take anymore of the kids incompetence and inexperience

I agree Ellen Corbett in 2014. She is a much better politician an has done more for Seniors, children,women, the environment, consumers, working families, teachers, nurses, and on and on.. Swalwell has accomplished next to nothing on the Dublin city council or since he's been in Congress.

1.3 million middle class Americans who lost their jobs through no fault of their own, get their unemployment benefits cut off during the Christmas season, and Eric is bragging about it---horrible. What a heartless person Swallwell is. I'll be voting for Ellen Corbett because she seems to care about the loss of American jobs and the loss of the middle class in America.

By MW:

In regard to one of the sentences in the first paragraph of this article, the big boys of Bay area politics, in other words such creatures as Willie Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Bill Lockyer, and Nancy Pelosi, etc, are not really and actually liberals. Instead, they are just demagogues and charlatans who pretend to be liberals.

More specifically, if someone's goal is to rip off as many people as possible and to be as big a parasite as possible, the best and most successful way to do it is by pretending be a great liberal and wonderful humanitarian.

Still furthermore, the Bay area is the world's capital and headquarters for sleazeballs, scumbags, and parasites who pretend to be great liberals and wonderful humanitarians. In fact in the Bay area we do not just merely tolerate such phonies, scumbags, and parasites, but we protect them and also actually make them our civic heroes.

And that is why the Bay area attracts and becomes the home of such phonies and scumbags as Jim Jones, and later of Jonestown infamy, and Reddy Lakireddy, the Berkeley slumlord and slaver, etc, etc, etc.

The Swalwell supporter who keeps posting is not mainstream. No moderate talks like that. You're one of the Tea Baggers that Swalwell courted to get elected. You are not representative of the district.

Swalwell came in and the right time, right place and made a deal with you Tea Baggers. Now you have to deal with Corbett who's has a long history of supporting the middle and lower class. And she knows how to campaign. The super majority who are compassionate with all their neighbors and want to see an effective person represent them will vote for Corbett.

You don't have to move Tea Bagger. Only idiots say that type of stuff.

Thank you Steven Tavares for the articles pointing out Mr Swalwell's incompetence, mistakes and heartlessness. This flip flopping neophyte is an embarrassment to our congressional district. I didn't like Stark and voted for Swalwell and now apologies are in order. Ellen Corbett has my vote in 2014 and I am a declined to state voter.

In the meantime, being a sport, I'll help you pack your bags and move you to Berkeley where you belong. That is your reservation of sorts.

Look at the picture of Swallwell with the beard in the above caption and that picture says a thousand words. He's a mistake prone kid who lucked into congress by running against an old man who lived in Maryland. Stark made mistake after mistake just like the kid is doing now in crowing about cutting off benefits for over a million Americans who lost their jobs because of the recession. Just like Stark we will put the kid on the unemployment line What a joke we have representing us. Voting for Ellen Corbett in 2014 and many of my moderate friends will too.

Ellen is more popular East of the hills then many believe. It will be much closer because of all the unwanted development and congestion that Eric voted for on the Dublin City Council that added to the traffic jams that are destroying our way of life here in the valley.

Since Ellen will destroy him West of the hills, she should be able to win because of the ground troops (precinct walkers) and phone bankers that will volunteer for her. She has always had many more than her opposition. Supporters going door to door usually win elections, not how much money you get from vested interests.

Dream on, bitch.

We love our congressman and will be bringing him back again.

Move back to Bizerkeley where you're from.

After Ellen Whorbett implodes, if she hasn't already, you're going to be crying a river of guilt. Pathetic.

If you lived in the Valley and your kid had asthma you would care. By the way, just because you don't care about the fact our former councilman and present congressman hasn't accomplished anything for us except destroy our health and create traffic congestion doesn't mean the rest of us don't care. This is why Swalwell will be defeated by Ellen Corbett in 2014.

If you look at his FEC filing's, Swalwell's clearly done polling. If it showed him way up on Ellen, he would have pulled a Honda and released it to show how well he was doing. But he didn't, probably because the poll showed her ahead or within striking distance.
No poll = No lead for Eric. That's why he's panicking and lapping up the developer and PAC money.

Mr Swalwell, how can taking away unemployment benefits during the holiday season move our country forward? What an a__hole Swalwell is! Never thought I'd say it, but vote for Ellen Corbett in 2014. Maybe when Swalwell is unemployed he might have a better understanding that screwing 1.3 million americans is wrong.

Swalwell only cares about the upper class, he can care less about the rest of us. Ellen Corbett cares about the middle class, the consumers, the poor, the teachers, seniors, children and those who aren't in Swalwell's income bracket. That's why she will be elected next year. Ellen has a heart and cares about the rest of us.

My wife and I will be voting for Ellen Corbett next year because we think she has done more as our Senator than Swalwell has done as congressman or councilman.

Her crowning achievement will be her legacy: renaming the San Francisco-Bay Bridge the WILLIE LEWIS BROWN, JR. BRIDGE.

She has continually shown her scorn and arrogance toward average working people and women by consecrating this transportation marvel in the name of a pimp, boss, conceited and arrogant chauvinist who has mistreated women and devalued them his entire life.

Good job, Ellen. With someone like you singing the praises of old pimp, boss Brown...that says it all--and then some.

So now the Swalwell troll is both sexist and racist. That says it all and then some. You have used that same post on many different articles. It's a Tea Party mantra almost, and shows how extreme you are. With sexists and racists like you backing Swalwell---Ellen Corbett will win for sure. Ellen has authored hundreds of bills that have benefitted the average working man and woman that have become law. Eric has authored 0 bills that have become law that benefitted the average working man or woman.

Don't try to change the topic, bitch.

The only racist here is your gal by extension of naming a bridge for a misogynist, pimp'n womanizer. You really can't read, can you?

Boy, is Ellen in dire straits with bitches like you propping her up.

Notice the Swalwell troll only reverts to name calling. Typical Tea Bagger tactics.

Your "movement" is done. Certainly here in California and most likely throughout the country. Who should move now?

Ellen Corbett will get my vote in 2014 because I hate extreme sexists and the candidates they support and I'm a male declined to state voter who voted for Swallwell last time.

Drum roll:

I've been following this string and it's getting boring. When people have to resort to name calling and using sexist terms it shows a lack of intelligence. Look at the 8:27 post for example. Are you in Middle School? How does that help your candidate? It will cause most women be they conservative, moderate or progressive to vote for Ellen Corbett. It's not wether you think you are a sexist, it's what the rest of us think.

Anon 8:27 zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Tea Partiers ain't got nothing better to do than name call. I do think Duck Dynasty is still on the air .. go watch that.

The 7:44 dec 23 and the 8:27 dec 24 are typical examples of someone who has lost the argument. In fact when I read through this string it looks like the same Swalwell radical has multiple posts that reek of sexism. With friends like the troll Swalwell doesn't need any enemies. I'll also be voting for Ellen Corbett in 2014.

Won the 'argument' and more importantly the election next year. By the way, Space HO, do learn how to spell. Your grammar is fucking atrocious.

Merry fucking Christmas, ya'll!

If you check the Citizen articles you will find Swalwell not Corbett has been bought and paid for by big business, large corporations, big pharma, etc. I'll take Corbett any day with her outstanding pro-consumer voting record. Go get him Ellen because you have a good chance of winning. Eric only won because people thought Stark was losing it. I also voted for Swalwell, but won't again. He's too inexperienced, corrupt and changes his mind on issues all the time.

Eric wants to try and run against Stark again but Ellen's to smart and popular to let that happen. Eventually it will boil down to Eric running on his merits and accomplishments, and Ellen running on her merits and accomplishments. I think it's fair to say Eric has accomplished very little and Ellen has accomplished much more. Ellen wins in 2014.

She is always WHorrific.

Since Eric has authored no significant legislation in Washington, I'll take Ellen Corbett who has authored significant legislation to help the environment, women, consumers, seniors, children, education, etc.

Because of the tone of the Swalwell supporter (sexist remarks),
I will be voting for Ellen Corbett if she runs. I voted for Eric
against Stark but realize that was a mistake. I think we need
more women in Congress and Ellen is more than qualified.

What a sexist remark! I will vote for the most-qualified congressman whom we already have.

If you think the Willie Brown bridge gets any traction with voters? I got a bridge to sell you.

It's not a salient issue to voters. Hope you are not a person with any influence to Swalwell's campaign because if that's the best issue (or non-issue that you think is an issue) Swalwell has, then it will be a cakewalk for Corbett.

Get it clear to your thick Tea Party skull .. the bridge matter does and will not matter to voters.

I too will be voting for the most qualified congress person who happens to be a woman named Ellen Corbett. Ellen has authored many bills that have been signed into law and benefitted the middle class while Swalwell has ZERO.

Cut & paste! cut & paste! you Tea Baggers watching Fox News? too busy to come up with new stuff?

When you got the real deal, it's all so true, and it sticks like stink on a skunk, you stay with it!

Merry fuckin' new year, Space HO!

Nice try Swalwell troll, but no cigar!

You and Swalwell are as goofy as his picture in the Santa beard.

I think Ellen will win too but I think it will be a close race.

I do agree when Swalwell was on the Dublin City Council he did nothing and so far in Congress also has authored no significant legislation, but has signed on to other Dems bills.

Ellen Corbett, by contrast, has authored signifiant legislation benefitting the middle class and lower middle class, as well as the environment, women, consumers, seniors, children, education, veterans, teachers, nurses, police and fire.

I think it's fair to say Eric has accomplished very little and Ellen has accomplished much more. Ellen wins in 2014.

Just wait the Tea Baggers for Swalwell will cut & paste their response soon!

According to this Oct 16 article a large part of Swalwell's contributions came from the medical and pharmaceutical vested interest groups. These are the same groups that have been sticking it to the middle class and poor for years. My family and I will be voting for Ellen Corbett next year.

Tavares is just jealous of Swalwell. This purse carrying fool for Ellen Corbett will be singing the blues next year when that good for nothing Corbett is trounced in the polls and will than announce she'll be running for Mayor of Hayward, since she has no respect for the people of her district. She an opportunist and needs to be kicked out on her fat ass.

Eric did nothing on the Dublin City Council but sell out to the developers. So far in Congress he has done even less. He has not authored one piece of legislation that has become law.

Happy New Year with Ellen Corbett as our Congresswoman!

Our congressman is a TRUE mainstream Democrat who best represents OUR interests. He will be back in a landslide for sure.

1.3 million middle class Americans who lost their jobs through no fault of their own, get their unemployment benefits cut off during the Christmas season, and Eric is bragging about it---horrible. What a heartless person Swallwell is. I'll be voting for Ellen Corbett because she seems to care about the loss of American jobs and the loss of the middle class in America.

Wow, another lie from the Swalwell Troll. You should be ashamed of yourself. Ellen Corbett has told numerous people and organizations she is definitely running and her son is supporting her. Just another attempt by you to change the subject which was Swalwell voting to cut off benefits for 1.3 million Americans over the holidays. You both are despicable

Swalwell only cares about the upper class, he can care less about the rest of us. Ellen Corbett cares about the middle class, the consumers, the poor, the teachers, seniors, children and those who aren't in Swalwell's income bracket. That's why she will be elected next year. Ellen has a heart and cares about the rest of us.

Mr Swalwell, how can taking away unemployment benefits during the holiday season move our country forward? What an a__hole Swalwell is! Never thought I'd say it, but vote for Ellen Corbett in 2014. Maybe when Swalwell is unemployed he might have a better understanding that screwing 1.3 million americans is wrong.

Shame on Swalwell for cutting off benefits for 1.3 million Americans. The extension of federal benefits was started by Bush and continued by both parties when the unemployment rate was this high.

It's about real people, people with families struggling to meet mortgage payments, struggling to put food on the table, to make ends meet, and includes 200,000 military veterans among those folk who are losing their benefits.

This is why my friends and I will be voting for Ellen Corbett this year....she has a heart and cares about the 90% of us who aren't rich too. Shame on Swalwell.

I agree with Dan Corbett, who rightly pointed out that she isn't even a candidate. Retirement is her next gig.

These ultra liberal dreamers are so truly pathetic it isn't even funny.

I for one want her to have more time to learn some good baking recipes in her retirement.

I know who my daughters and I will be voting for!

Let's stick to the topic and not sexist remarks Swalwell Troll

Shame on Swalwell for cutting off benefits for 1.3 million Americans. The extension of federal benefits was started by Bush and continued by both parties when the unemployment rate was this high.

It's about real people, people with families struggling to meet mortgage payments, struggling to put food on the table, to make ends meet, and includes 200,000 military veterans among those folk who are losing their benefits.

This is why my friends and I will be voting for Ellen Corbett this year....she has a heart and cares about the 90% of us who aren't rich too. Shame on Swalwell.

Wow, another lie from the Swalwell Troll. You should be ashamed of yourself. Ellen Corbett has told numerous people and organizations she is definitely running and her son is supporting her. Just another attempt by you to change the subject which was Swalwell voting to cut off benefits for 1.3 million Americans over the holidays. You both are despicable

Let's stick to the topic Swalwell Troll:

Drum roll Swalwell troll or staffer or both. I hope you are posting on your own time and not the taxpayer's dime.

Wow, another truth from Citizen Crusader. You should be very proud of yourself. Ellen Corbett has told numerous people and organizations she is definitely NOT running and her son is echoing that message.

Thank you, Citizen Crusader for helping to spread el verdad!

I'm glad the Swalwell troll is still telling lies, it tells me he is really worried. Ellen Corbett has told many people at different Democratic events that she is running including me. The fact he voted to cut off benefits to 1.4 million Americans should be the topic. Why are you trying to mislead people?

So stoked about Eric!

My daughters and I are going to be celebrating all night long at his re-election victory.

Wondering if Whorbett will be as fucked-up as Fortney or whether she'll make her concession call. Needs to be gracious in defeat--if she's even a candidate. Don't think she has the 'balls' to run. Oh well.

Anon 6:54-------with sexists like you supporting Eric Swalwell, Ellen Corbett will win for sure. Didn't know we had a Tea Party dinosaur left in the District. She has more balls than the flip flopping, say one thing do another Congressman. Voted for him last time, but it's Congresswoman Ellen Corbett this time.

Try and stay on topic--this story is about Swalwell screwing 1.3 million americans, including 200.00 veterans.

Thank you Steven . Keep posting the truth. All the major newspapers in the Bay Area are owned by ultra-conservative right wingers. None of them have independent journalists. They all follow the company line and do what they are told to do.

Anon above is definitely a Swalwell staffer. Come Jan 1st of next year that staffer will be out of work and looking for unemployment benefits. Our new Congresswoman will be Ellen Corbett, and most of us can't wait for the progressive change.

P.S. Try and stay on topic of Swalwell sticking it to 1.3 million americans by cutting off their unemployment benefits during the Holiday season and then dressing up as Santa. What a joke!

So now the Swalwell troll is both sexist and racist. That says it all and then some. You have used that same post on many different articles. It's a Tea Party mantra almost, and shows how extreme you are. With sexists and racists like you backing Swalwell---Ellen Corbett will win for sure. Ellen has authored hundreds of bills that have benefitted the average working man and woman that have become law. Eric has authored ZERO bills that have become law that benefitted the average working man or woman.

Try and stay on topic of Swalwell sticking it to 1.3 million americans by cutting off their unemployment benefits during the Holiday season and then dressing up as Santa. What a joke! I notice when you are losing an argument you always try and change the topic.
