The Democratic Presidential ticket is now set.
Former Vice -President Biden has chosen Senator Kamala Harris to be his running mate. Never in my 40 plus years of following elections have I seen a ticket with more baggage, ego, and skeletons in their closets. As I saw today in a Bill Mitchell tweet, their “skeletons have skeletons”.
Kamala Harris has been in politics for decades and has a record which no one, but a power-hungry activist, could be proud of. Her pick, along with Joe’s rapidly declining mental acuity, has to fuel her desire to be the first female President, and to do so as a “woman of color”.
In the event Joe is elected, but subsequently has to step down, Kalama would take the easy route on her way to the Oval Office. This explains why an angry, self-righteous woman, would join the Biden team, especially considering his close relationship with former KKK member James Byrd.
Her past shows she will do ANYTHING to get what she wants. Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past extramarital relationship with U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris saying he may have boosted the presidential hopeful’s career. During their “affair’ Mr. Brown said, “Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two-state commissions when I was [California] Assembly, the speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”
But unlike the other people he helped, such as U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Kamala was different. “The difference is that Harris is the only one who, after I helped her, sent word that I would be indicted if I ‘so much as jaywalked’ while she was D.A.,” Brown wrote. “That’s politics for ya.”
During the primaries, the others running against Mr. Biden would typically dance around Joe’s obvious shortcomings, but in the second debate, Kalama called out of his obvious racist votes as a US Senator.
According to PJ Media, there are 5 Things to Know About Biden’s VP Pick, Kamala Harris.
1. Attorney General baggage
After serving as the district attorney of San Francisco (2004-2011), Harris won a close race to become California’s attorney general (2010-2017). In that position, she took a tough-on-crime stance that would become extremely controversial in the 2020 primary. Biden himself attacked Harris for her tough-on-crime record during the second Democratic presidential debate last June.
In a shameful episode of pandering, Harris tried to craft a story about smoking marijuana in college. Last February, she told “The Breakfast Club” that she broke the law in college while listening to rappers whose music hadn’t come out by the time she graduated college — or even law school, for that matter.
2. Her record of silencing dissent
Harris didn’t just crackdown on crime as attorney general. She also used her position to silence her ideological opponents.
In 2014, David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a slew of undercover sting videos showing Planned Parenthood staff admitting to selling aborted baby body parts for profit, with one even joking about buying a Lamborghini with the profits. Planned Parenthood hired the firm Fusion GPS, now notorious for assembling the Trump-Russia dossier, to obscure the facts and suggest the videos were deceptively edited.
Kamala Harris, who has received at least $81,000 from Planned Parenthood, was serving as California’s attorney general at the time. In 2016, her office searched Daleiden’s home, seizing his video footage and preparing a legal case against him. In 2017, Harris’s successor, Xavier Becerra (another politician bankrolled by Planned Parenthood), filed 15 felony charges against CMP and Daleiden.
3. Radical LGBT and Judicial Activist
When the people of California voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman in 2008, Harris refused to defend Proposition 8 when it was challenged in court. The state’s Supreme Court had ruled that marriage must be opened to same-sex couples, and the people amended the state constitution to reverse this decision.
Then adding insult to injury, when the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals lifted its stay and allowed same-sex marriage to occur in California, Kamala Harris herself officiated the first same-sex marriage at San Francisco City Hall. Not only did Harris follow Jerry Brown in refusing to defend Proposition 8, but she also actively celebrated its legal defeat.
In November and December 2018, Harris joined Sen. Mazie Hirono’s (D-Hawaii) inquisition into Trump nominees Paul Matey and Brian Buescher regarding the Knights of Columbus. “Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?” Harris asked Buescher. She further pressed him on same-sex marriage, since KOC spent $1 million supporting California’s Proposition 8, a ballot initiative defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Buescher pledged to uphold the law, regardless of his personal positions.
4. Demonizing Brett Kavanaugh
Harris proved one of the worst offenders in the fight against Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee (now Justice), Brett Kavanaugh. Even before the sexual assault allegations from Christine Blasey Ford surfaced, Harris was among Kavanaugh’s most vigorous opponents, even suggesting that the judge had hidden sympathies with white supremacists.
5. Her attacks on Joe Biden
Biden’s choice of Harris is particularly odd, given the senator’s repeated attacks on the former vice president during the primary.
When Biden reminisced about a bygone era of civility in politics, praising segregationists in his own Democratic Party, Kamala Harris condemned him for coddling their reputations.
“To coddle the reputations of segregationists, of people who if they had their way, I would literally not be standing here as a member of the United States Senate … it’s misinformed and it’s wrong,” Harris told reporters last June. “Let’s be very clear. The senators that he is speaking of with such adoration are individuals who made and built their reputation on segregation. The Ku Klux Klan celebrated the election of one of them.”
There are dozens of other issues that disqualify her serving as Vice-President. What will matter in the end is how open are the voters to hearing and considering her past or will she get a PASS, as the media will be able to block access to the information, as a massive political activism machine.
