I freely admit that this made me LAUGH OUT LOUD!!

California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, perhaps the most dishonest man in Washington, D.C., has had a tough week.
First, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stripped him of his membership on the House Intelligence Committee. And on Thursday, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced a bill that, if passed, would ban Schiff from gaining access to classified information.
This legislation is called the PENCIL Act. You may recall former President Donald Trump was fond of calling the repellent Schiff “Pencil-Neck,” although the nickname actually was picked up from Rush Limbaugh.
The bill, which can be viewed below, was first obtained by The Daily Caller. It states, “This resolution may be cited as the ‘Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses Resolution,’ or the ‘PENCIL Resolution.’”
It also enumerates some of the many ways Schiff abused his powerduring the Trump administration. Schiff claimed for years that Trump had colluded with the Russian government to win the presidency. He made the rounds of all the liberal cable news programs and insisted that evidence of this collusion was in plain sight.
The bill also takes Schiff to task for pressuring Twitter executives to “take action against alleged harassers and spreaders of misinformation” — in other words, content he disagreed with.
Before Gaetz introduced the resolution, he told the Daily Caller, “Congressman Adam Schiff led the effort for years to weaponize lies from the Clinton campaign and a corrupt Department of Justice to smear President Trump while destroying any trust the country had left in America’s intelligence agencies.”
“Speaker McCarthy kept his promise to remove Rep. Schiff from the Intelligence Committee,” Gaetz said. “And with the PENCIL Resolution, we will express the sense of Congress that he should be barred from accessing any classified information at all. He can no longer be trusted by his colleagues in Congress or the American people.”
Thursday also was a big day for Schiff for another reason. He announced he is running for the Senate seat currently occupied by his Democratic colleague, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, because “the truth matters.”
In the video below, Schiff is heard saying, “I’ve always believed that what’s right matters. That the truth matters.”
This from the most notorious liar in Congress.
Next it shows multiple clips of him telling talk-show hosts and reporters there was “ample evidence of collusion” and that it was “far worse than Watergate.”
Shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation ended in the spring of 2019 without finding the evidence Schiff swore was in plain sight, he seized upon a July 2019 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and used it as the basis for Trump’s first impeachment.
Schiff then served as the lead House manager for the Senate trial, which ended in Trump’s acquittal.
In his well-known book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky told followers, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”
No one likes to be ridiculed, but I can’t think of a better weapon to wield against Schiff.
He must be positively apoplectic.
Brethren, I have no words except for:

I love it!
Sadly, Schiff will likely “win” Feinstein’s seat. He is a sargent in the evil one’s army and proven very loyal. Unless the Lord wills differently, he is down but not out. But it is rewarding to see him being humiliated for the time being.
