Swalwell Laments Absence of A Single Reference To “Women” . . . In Constitution Without Single Reference To “Men”

I recently wrote about the announcement by Democratic presidential candidate Eric Swalwell that he would only consider women for vice president — refusing to consider a man regardless of his credentials for the second highest position in the country. Now Swalwell has publicly lamented that the United States Constitutional does not have a single reference to “women” as an “unacceptable” exclusion of women. Swalwell appears to have dismissed the fact that “men” is also absent to the document which refers to “people” and “person.” Sometimes it is as hard to find a noun in a constitution as it is a breakout issue in an election.

On Tuesday, Swalwell tweeted: “Do you know how many times the word ‘Woman’ is mentioned in the Constitution? Zero.”

Eric Swalwell@ericswalwell

Do you know how many times the word “Woman” is mentioned in the Constitution?

Zero.

That is unacceptable. Women must be equally represented and equally protected. #ERANow8,46110:09 PM – Apr 30, 2019

By the way, other terms are not mentioned in the Constitution but are still part of the Constitution including the “separation of church and state” and “privacy.” Another thing not mentioned? “Political party” which (given this latest controversy) may have been the wisest omission of all.

  1. The only way this candidate will gain notice is to have his face placed on milk cartons.

    1. Darren, is there a way to force the program to keep the details, name and email?

      I check the save my name and it disappears. I think others are having the same problem and the number of anonymous posters has increased.

      Thanks in advance.

      1. Allan,

        Unfortunately, I don’t know what is going on in your case that is causing the problems. It is a WordPress issue and not specific to this blog. You might try searching for the answer on the WordPress help forums. https://en.support.wordpress.com/ but most of the help out there is geared toward site owners and creators.

        1. Thanks Darren. I went to their website one time before. I think the problem is affecting more than me and might account for some of the additional anonymous’s, but then again I don’t find them of value. Thanks.

  2. Since January 3, 2019, it has been crystal clear that there is a serious need for the keepers of the political lexicon to create a new word for this caliber of astounding ignorance and abject stupidity.

  3. Every American needs toilet paper. Which brand we chose is a matter which needs to be taken up for discussion on this blog. As an aside, some men do not wipe correctly and some women do not wipe correctly. Their sex or race may not be at issue. What itShayhead here needs to address is: sex, drugs and rock n roll. He uses a rock instead of a roll. His stance on sex in the White House is between a rock and a hard place. Why, by the way, do they refer to that dwelling as a “White” House? Is that in the Constitution or Bill of Rights or Declaration of Independence? After Obama we should name it something else. Swallwell is a Dem and not a Fem and his itShay is all over his ouYeah.

  4. Swalwell epitomizes the ignorance on the Left, only being outdone by the infamous, Maxine Waters.

  5. Oh, here’s a reference to women!

    Azra Turk is added to the list of the Obama Coup D’etat in America co-conspirators.
    ______________________________________

    “The New York Times reports that the woman, who used the alias Azra Turk, was tasked by the FBI to work alongside Halper during a series of meetings with Papadopoulos in London in September 2016.”

    “Papadopoulos has described Turk as a “honeypot,” a spy term used to describe a situation where sex is used to lure targets of intelligence operations. Papadopoulos told TheDCNF that Turk, an attractive blonde, flirted heavily with him and attempted to make contact after the London meeting back in the States.

    “I’m stunned by the come-hither tone of Azra Turk and her classic honeypot act,” Papadopoulos wrote in his tell-all, “Deep State Target.”

    According to Papadopoulos, both Halper and Turk asked him whether he knew about Russian hacks of Democrats. Papadopoulos says he had knowledge of Russian hacking operations, and conveyed that to the two covert agents.

    Papadopoulos says that he did not meet again with Turk, in part because he suspected she was working with foreign intelligence agencies. He has recently said he believes that Turk, who spoke little English during the London meetings, has links to the CIA and Turkish intelligence.”

    1. “SPYGATE”

      The Obama Coup D’etat in America is the most egregious abuse of power and the most prodigious scandal in American political history.

      The co-conspirators are:

      Rosenstein, Mueller/Team, Comey, McCabe, Strozk, Page, Kadzic, Yates, Baker,

      Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Priestap, Kortan, Campbell, Sir Richard Dearlove, Steele,

      Simpson, Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer, Stefan “The Walrus” Halper, Azra Turk,

      Kerry, Hillary, Huma, Mills, Brennan, Clapper, Lerner, Farkas, Power, Lynch, Rice,

      Jarrett, Holder, Brazile, Sessions, Obama et al.

      1. And apparently the most inept as it managed to cripple Hillary’s campaign while protecting Trump’s. How did that happen?

        1. As was the case in “Watergate,” so will it be the case in “Spygate.”

          America will have the answers after the last perpetrator is adjudicated.

          I surmise that person to be Hillary or Obama. How ’bout you?

          Ukrainian embassy confirms DNC contractor solicited Trump dirt in 2016

          “In addition, I wrote last month that the Obama White House invited Ukrainian law enforcement officials to a meeting in January 2016 as Trump rose in the polls on his improbable path to the presidency.”
          _

          “Telizhenko said that, when he was told by the embassy to arrange the meeting, both Chaly and the ambassador’s top deputy identified Chalupa “as someone working for the DNC and trying to get Clinton elected.”
          _

          “She said the DNC wanted to collect evidence that Trump, his organization and Manafort were Russian assets, working to hurt the U.S. and working with Putin against the U.S. interests. She indicated if we could find the evidence they would introduce it in Congress in September and try to build a case that Trump should be removed from the ballot, from the election,” he recalled.

          1. Tom, lots of excellent reasons, but Anon wishes to focus on one that was like a raindrop to her campaign while a down pour to Trump yet Trump won. Why? Hillary was a lousy candidate.

            1. Anon also fancies the Republicans ‘stole’ a Supreme Court seat from Obama by declining to confirm his nominee.

                  1. If one assumes the senate should and will perform it’s constitutional duties, it is a fact. I agree that is no longer a safe or even likely assumption as the bar has been lowered and now all can skip across it regardless of party.

                    Congratulations!

  6. swallwell is a political grifter. Looking to pad his resume and secure a job at one of the media sites so many go to after exiting Congress.
