Opinion/Analysis: Biden Exhibits Outright Racism in Picking a Running Mate

Joe Biden selected a running mate based on the color of her skin. He rejected other candidates based on the color of their skin. He did this openly and without apology. Think about that for a moment. Let that sink in. In the year 2020, more than six decades after America desegregated public schools, a nominee for president from a major political party brazenly displayed outright racism in picking a running mate. It is a mockery of everything Martin Luther King fought for. A perversion of the entire civil rights movement. For most Americans today, their parents would have spanked their little fannies raw if they had ever displayed such blatant racism on the schoolyard playground. But the former vice president is from a different era. Apparently, evaluating people by their skin color is perfectly acceptable to him. It is even celebrated. Mr. Biden was lauded and applauded by Democrats, which perhaps should not be a surprise given the party’s long, sordid history of outward racism. The really sad “hosannas” came from the national political media, which once stood athwart the currents of racism in America. But no more. They, along with the Democrat Party, remain the last bastions of open, celebrated racism. Literally, these people are the last people in America who remain utterly obsessed with race. They are gripped by skin color. Every decision they make about how to treat people, how to judge people and how to speak to people is entirely based upon the color of their skin. Ironically, we have nobody to thank for Mr. Biden’s candidacy more than President Barack Obama himself, who only needed Mr. Biden as his vice president because he needed a goofy, old, throwback white political hack from Washington for a sidekick. If Mr. Obama had not needed that very particular itch scratched at the moment he picked Mr. Biden out of the dustbin of history, Ol’ Joe would be happily living out his golden years in some pleasant retirement home sniffing nurses and offering them lap rides in his Corvette while wearing his aviator glasses. Instead, he is running for president of the United States. Because among 350 million people, Democrats could not find anybody better. Even Kamala Harris is smart enough to know that “making history” cannot be her only reason for serving as Mr. Biden’s running mate. She has to at least pretend to be more than just the color of her skin (and her preferred gender at the moment). So, she goes for family connections, otherwise known as “nepotism.” “I’ve been thinking about the first Biden that I really came to know,” Ms. Harris said at her race-based unveiling. “And that of course is one of his beloved sons, Beau.” Beau Biden served as a state attorney general at the same time as Ms. Harris did. He tragically died young of brain cancer in 2015. “Let me tell you about Beau Biden,” she said. “I learned quickly that Beau was the kind of guy who inspired people to be a better version of themselves. He really was the best of us.” “And when I would ask him, ‘Where do you get that? Where did this come from?’ He’d always talk about his dad.” That would be Joe Biden, the guy who picked Kamala Harris to be his running mate based on the color of her skin. The very same Joe Biden that barely a year ago she smeared as some kind of racist for his opposition to busing during the long, painful struggle to desegregate public schools. “It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two U.S. senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country,” she scolded him during one of the debates where Ms. Harris was clawing for the Democratic nomination that ultimately went to Mr. Biden. And hellbent she was to make it as personally humiliating as possible. “There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day,” she jeered Mr. Biden in a carefully rehearsed take-down. “That little girl was me.” This is how she smeared Mr. Biden on national television in her grotesque effort to snatch political power? This is how she slimed the man who was responsible for raising Beau Biden to be the inspiration he was? This is what she says to a man responsible for making all of us “a better version” of ourselves and “the best of us”? Wow. What must this woman think of people she doesn’t know intimately who stand between her and her greedy clutches of power? And then she takes Mr. Biden up on his offer to grasp the brass ring with him? These people are truly sick. Sick, sick, sick. They are sick to their very souls. There is, literally, no dead body they will not desecrate in their desperate crusade for political power. At least she has the right color skin.

Kamala Harris to boycott South Carolina forum in protest of Trump award: He’s ‘a lawless president’

Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris plans to boycott an upcoming South Carolina criminal justice forum that she was slated to attend after the organizers honored President Trump on Friday with an award for his work on criminal justice reform. Trump received the Bipartisan Justice Award from the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center for his legislative strides on the First Step Act, which grants early release to thousands of nonviolent offenders who are currently serving time in federal prisons. Harris herself was a supporter of the legislation, which received bipartisan support before Trump signed it into law. Harris, also a recipient of the award in 2016, took issue with the group’s decision and called Trump — who is facing an impeachment inquiry by House Democrats — “a lawless President.” “Not only does he circumvent the laws of our country and the principles of our Constitution, but there is nothing in his career that is about justice, for justice or in celebration of justice,” her campaign said in a statement. She also decried that only a small minority of students at Benedict College, a historically black college in Columbia, secured tickets for Saturday’s event because the majority of the seats will be filled by administration officials and Trump supporters. “Today, when it became clear Donald Trump would receive an award after decades of celebrating mass incarceration, pushing the death penalty for innocent black Americans, rolling back police accountability measures and racist behavior that puts people’s lives at risk, and then learned all but [10] Benedict students are excluded from participating, I cannot in good faith be complicit in papering over his record,” Harris said. “Instead, I’ll host students from all campuses, as well as the broader Columbia community, to come and discuss this critical issue that I’ve worked on for my entire career,” she added. The junior U.S. senator from California was among 10 Democrats expected to attend the forum but instead said she now plans to host her own criminal justice roundtable. Harris has come under fire for her own record on criminal justice reform. In her run for the White House, her campaign has consistently touted the progressive aspects of her career as district attorney and later attorney general of California, which include introducing a proposal for nationwide bail reform, as well as legalizing marijuana, which is a part of her comprehensive criminal justice reform agenda if she is elected president in 2020. But her record as a San Francisco prosecutor has also been scrutinized, as detractors of her campaign point out that although she’s outwardly advocated for a ban to capital punishment, Harris has defended the death penalty in court. She also fought to keep people in prison even after they were proven to be innocent and resisted the release of prisoners from California jails after the Supreme Court deemed that they were overcrowded, and were perpetuating cruel and unusual punishment against its prisoners. As of mid-week, Harris was polling behind former Vice President Joe Biden, the top contender for the 2020 Democratic nomination, by nearly 22 points, with only 5.3 percentage points, according to RealClear Politics.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is the poster child for what’s wrong in politics these days.  Instead of attending this weekend’s forum in the great state of South Carolina where only three years ago she received an award for bi-partisanship, she elected to cancel because President Trump was gonna receive the same award.  And, let’s take a good look at that..  He signed legislation that SHE SUPPORTED!  And, because of that BI-PARTISAN work, where he secured support from BOTH sides of the political aisle, and signed prison reform legislation into law, this BI-PARTISAN forum in SC is honoring him.  The nerve!  lol  From Kamala’s brazenly hypocritical, self-righteous view, President Trump is “unfit” to receive such an honor because he is “lawless,” although he hasn’t been charged, much less convicted, of any crime that we’re aware of.  But, it is the kind of bs grandstanding and political posturing that may work with some of her constituents/base….although she’s only polling around 5% among registered Dem voters nationally.  So, she has ZERO chance at this point of securing her party’s nomination.  Thank God..  What a nauseating tool.

Kamala Harris Promises Opportunities, but Outsources U.S. Jobs to Indian Graduates

Sen. Kamala Harris is declaring herself the supporter of working families — but she is the lead Democratic sponsor on legislation which offers green cards to hundreds of thousands of Indian college grads who agree to take middle-class jobs sought by young American graduates. If Harris’ outsourcing law is adopted, the rush of Central Americans migrants at the southern border will be overshadowed by a huge rush of Indian college graduates walking into professional jobs throughout the United States. “It is impossible to understate the significance of this,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. Vaughan continued: A lot of people believe this is only for IT [professionals] but the potential impact goes way beyond IT – healthcare, accountants, and other professional jobs will be at risk. These are jobs which offered a gateway into the middle class for kids from families where the parents did not have white-collar jobs… American graduates are going to see their employment prospects severely restricted by Harris’ bill. This is “white-c0llar labor trafficking,” she added. “Working families need support and need to be lifted up,” Kamala Harris told the TV audience at the June 28 Democrat debate, adding: “Frankly, this economy is not working for working people. For too long, the rules have been written in the favor of the people who have the most and not in favor of the people who work the most. We have all been traveling around the country, I certainly have, I’m meeting people who are working two and three jobs … So when we talk about jobs, let’s be really clear. In our America, no one should have to work more than one job to have a roof over their head and food on the table.” Harris is the lead Democratic sponsor for the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. The legislation is intended to help Indian graduates get roughly 120,000 green cards each year — or roughly five times as many green cards as they receive now. But Harris’ bill is a special-interest fix for a problem collectively created by the federal government, India’s government, CEOs, investors, and their hired foreign contract-workers. The huge career and financial cost of Harris’ fix will be imposed on young American graduates, including million of U.S. graduates who are likely to vote Democratic in 2020.

This is truly awful.  Hopefully this dies in the Senate, and if not, hopefully President Trump vetos it if it ever makes to his desk.  Kamala is such an obnoxious tool…  For more, click on the text above.

Senate Rebukes Harris and Hirono on Knights of Columbus

On Wednesday the Senate approved a resolution that rebuked two Democratic senators for questioning judicial nominees about their membership in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal service organization. The resolution, introduced by Sen. Ben Sasse (R., Neb.), affirmed “the sense of the Senate that disqualifying a nominee to federal office on the basis of membership in the Knights of Columbus violates the Constitution of the United States.” The Senate proceeded to affirm the resolution without objection. Last month, Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) and Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii), both on the Senate Judiciary Committee, questioned a judicial nominee about his membership in the Knights of Columbus and whether it would affect his ability to fairly judge cases. Brian Buescher was nominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska. Hirono sent written questions claiming “the Knights of Columbus has taken a number of extreme positions. For example, it was reportedly one of the top contributors to California’s Proposition 8 campaign to ban same-sex marriage.” She also asked if Buescher would quit the group if confirmed “to avoid any appearance of bias.” Harris described the Knights as “an all-male society” in her questions, and also asked if Buescher knew the Knights “opposed a woman’s right to choose” and were against “marriage equality” when he became a member. Sasse’s resolution also referenced the anti-Catholic bigotry Democratic president John F. Kennedy faced during his presidency, and cited the Knights of Columbus’s “proud tradition of standing against the forces of prejudice and oppression such as the Ku Klux Klan and Nazi Germany.” The resolution asked the Senate to express its sense “that disqualifying a nominee to federal office on the basis of membership in the Knights of Columbus violates Clause 3 of Article 6 of the Constitution of the United States which establishes that senators ‘shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support this Constitution[; but] no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.'” Sasse urged his fellow senators to rebuke the anti-Catholic attacks against Buescher. “If a senator has a problem with this resolution, you’re probably in the wrong line of work because this is what America is. This is a super basic point, no religious test. If someone has a problem with this resolution, what other parts of the Constitution are you against: freedom of the press, women’s right to vote, freedom of speech? This isn’t hard. No religious test for serving on the federal bench. We should, in this body, rebuke these anti-Catholic attacks,” Sasse said. After the resolution was affirmed, the Nebraska senator said he would report back to Buescher “that he can ignore those questions that he received about whether or not he would resign his membership in the Knights of Columbus.”

Dem. Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) are nauseating, self-righteous, religious bigots.  Kudos to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb) for calling them out like this publicly on the floor of the Senate and getting this resolution passed.  Excellent!!   🙂

Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris accused of breaking fundraising rules over Kavanaugh vote

A watchdog group filed a Senate ethics complaint Monday against Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren for sending out fundraising emails asking for donations to support their votes against Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh — even before they cast their votes against him. While voting and then asking supporters to back that decision with cash is common, the watchdog group, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), says asking for money ahead of time crosses the line into vote-buying. FACT asked the Senate ethics committee to probe fundraising emails sent by Ms. Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, and Ms. Harris, California Democrat. Ms. Warren’s email said she was demanding a delay on the judge’s confirmation vote and asked for donations for her 2018 election campaign, while Ms. Harris’s emails detailed several of her actions as a member of the Judiciary Committee, including her questioning of the president’s pick for the high court, and asking for contributions. The Senate’s rules prohibit senators “cashing in” on using their official positions for personal gain. FACT said that linking a promise of official action with campaign contributions violates that principle. “This is a clear violation of the Senate Ethics rules which safeguard against the appearance or actuality of elected officials ‘cashing in’ on their official position for political purposes,” said Kendra Arnold, executive director of FACT. Spokespersons for Ms. Harris and Ms. Warren didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

Of course not..   They’re huddled with their attorneys.  Senate Dems and the dominantly liberal mainstream media made it clear even before (now) Justice Brett Kavanaugh was even officially nominated,  that they’d do anything and everything possible (even illegal), to fight his nomination.  So, this shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Kudos to FACT for looking into this potential ethics violation on the part of Sens. Warren and Harris.  This story is developing…

Taxpayers Funded ‘Unprecedented’ Armed Protection for Gun Control Sen. Kamala Harris

An examination of expense reports reveal gun control Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) received taxpayer-funded armed protection from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in 2017 and 2018 at events throughout the state. NBC 4 reports that the protection was “unprecedented” in that it went beyond the security which the LAPD usually provides “for dignitaries and officials visiting LA.” Taxes from residents of Los Angeles funded armed security personnel to protect Harris not only in LA but in other cities throughout the state as well. Taxpayers even paid for armed security to go with Harris to a party. The protection lasted January 2017 through July 2018 and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) says he was not aware it was occurring. Garcetti indicated former LAPD Chief Charles Beck put the special protection into place. LAPD spokesman Josh Rubenstein said, “Chief of Police Charlie Beck assigned a security detail for US Senator Kamala Harris shortly before she was sworn into office in 2017, based on a threat assessment he believed to be credible. Funding for the detail was provided by the Department budget.” On November 22, 2015, Breitbart News reported that California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom spent millions of taxpayer dollars to surround himself with armed security while Mayor of San Francisco. NBC Bay Area reported Newsom’s security spending while Mayor of San Francisco as follows: “How much does it cost to protect the mayor of a major metropolitan city? In Los Angeles, about $450,000 a year. In Houston, about $339,00 a year. In San Francisco, anywhere between $1 and $72 million. [On July 7, 2009] SF Appeal revealed…the budget for Newsom’s personal police bodyguards comes out of the San Francisco Police Department’s Investigations Detail, which boasts a $72.9 million budget.” Newsom, like Sen. Harris, pushes restriction after restriction on average citizens ability to exercise their personal right to keep and bear arms.

Typical liberal Democrat hypocrisy.  They don’t want you to be able to exercise your 2nd Amendment RIGHTS to protect yourself and your family.  Yet, they spend YOUR money on armed protection for them…because they feel they’re more important than you.  The arrogance and hypocrisy of people like Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is truly breathtaking.

Dem Sen Kamala Harris Jokes About Killing Trump, Pence, Sessions

Thursday on “The Ellen Show,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) joked about killing President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, or Attorney General Jeff Sessions if they were in an elevator together. During a rapid fire question “vetting,” host Ellen DeGeneres asked, “If you had to be stuck on an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” Harris quipped, “Does one of us have to come out alive?” DeGeneres put down her cards to clap as Harris laughed.

Just imagine if some Republican Senator had joked about killing then Pres. Obama?  Omg..  The media would blow up.  But, a Democrat Senator joking about killing Pres. Trump?  That’s cool and hip to liberal media personalities like Ellen De Generate, who laughed and clapped and yucked it up.  Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) needs to apologize publicly, on camera for this NOT cool  attempt at humor.  Cracking political jokes is fine..  But, joking about killing a sitting president crosses a line.

Pelosi, other Democrats pocket campaign cash from owners of sex-trafficking website

After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of Backpage.com — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC. Mrs. Pelosi’s political action committee, House Majority PAC, has resisted giving the money back, and an aide to Mrs. Pelosi said the California Democrat knows nothing about the contribution. The uproar over sexual harassment that began with the Harvey Weinstein scandal has intensified the scrutiny of political contributions linked to Backpage, which law enforcement officials say is the chief platform for activities far worse than harassment, including sexual slavery and child prostitution. Mrs. Pelosi isn’t the only Democrat struggling to deal with the piles of cash that Backpage’s owners spread around to candidates and state Democratic parties over the years. Even Ms. Harris, a California Democrat who is now a U.S. senator, ducked the issue. Her office wouldn’t respond to repeated emails about Backpage money going to House Majority PAC and other Democratic organizations. Since 2010, the owners and their wives have shoveled about $99,000 to candidates and about $95,000 to Democratic parties in Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico, according to federal campaign finance data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics. Bowing to mounting pressure, including a bipartisan Senate investigation that found the owners knowingly sold ads to pimps who coerced minors into prostitution, Backpage in January closed down its adult services sections. The websites, however, continue to be marketplaces for the sex trade. Detroit police last week arrested two men who were using Backpage to run a sex trafficking ring after an underage girl told police she was brought to the city and put to work as a prostitute, with “dates” arranged on the website. In June, a Chicago man was arrested after using Backpage to sell a 16-year-old girl who was eventually killed by a client. Such stories of prostitution and sex trafficking linked to Backpage are relatively commonplace across the country. The founders and controlling shareholders of Backpage, Michael Lacey and James Larkin, and Backpage executives and shareholders John Brunst and Scott Spear, have made fortunes from the websites. In California alone, Backpage rakes in about $2.5 million per month, according to charging documents in the Golden State. Mr. Larkin made the contribution to the House Majority PAC in October 2016, a week after he and Mr. Lacey were charged in California. A judge, citing federal law that shields internet sites from most liability, dropped the pimping charge in August. Related money laundering charges are proceeding against the men. Legislation spearheaded by Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio Republican, would tighten federal law to hold accountable websites such as Backpage that host thinly disguised ads for commercial sex and child prostitution. The bill is expected to easily pass the Senate early next year. There is still the question of what to do about the Backpage money.

Wow..  More Democrat corruption..  To read the rest of this article, click on the text above..

Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris Spends Big With Media Firm That Boosted Bernie Sanders’s National Profile

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) has paid the online media firm that helped propel Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during his dark horse run for the 2016 Democratic primary more than $400,000 this year, filings show. Revolution Messaging LLC, a Washington, D.C.-based progressive online media firm founded by Scott Goodstein, an online director for Obama for America in 2008, was instrumental in helping push Sanders’s message out and raise his profile during his race against Hillary Clinton by creating his digital and branding strategy. “In the spring of 2015, before the campaign launched, we knew Bernie Sanders was a leader who stood on the right side of history,” the group wrote in their case study. “But Bernie was polling around 3 percent, had no establishment support, little name recognition and was running against a popular and ‘inevitable’ Democratic primary opponent. We had our work cut out for us. With no offline fundraising team, no Super PAC, and no Wall Street money, we would have to raise almost all of the campaign’s money from small-dollar donations.” Revolution ultimately helped Sanders raise $218 million online and has won numerous awards for their work on behalf of his campaign. Harris, who is commonly floated as a potential candidate for president in 2020, paid the firm large sums of money for the likes of advertising despite not being up for reelection in her home state of California until 2022. Harris’s Senate campaign began paying Revolution Messaging in July 2016, Federal Election Commission records show. From July 7 to Election Day, the campaign paid the firm $381,632 for advertising and campaign consulting. From Election Day to the end of the year, an additional $122,000 in payments from Harris’s campaign were made to Revolution. “Kamala Harris’ U.S. Senate campaign knew it needed to use social media as a way to channel her authentic voice and connect with voters,” Revolution writes of their work on the campaign. “We were honored to partner with her campaign to turn around its anemic social media growth and transform its Facebook and Twitter accounts into a powerful bully pulpit.” “Inspired by effective methods from the Bernie Sanders campaign, our social media team knew that creativity, authenticity and timeliness were necessities,” they continue. “Halloween memes, story collections, petitions, and capitalizing on small, but timely moments helped distill Harris’ authentic voice and quickly double social media followers.” The large disbursements from Harris’ campaign to Revolution have continued this year. Kamala Harris reported spending nearly $300,000 on the firm’s services during the first quarter, which runs from Jan. 1 to March 31. A majority of this amount ($265,000) has gone towards web advertisements. Throughout the second quarter, which spans from April 1 to July 31, Harris’s campaign paid another $110,000 to Revolution with nearly $70,000 of this amount going to advertising. Harris’s campaign has spent a total of $407,530 with Revolution so far this year.

Clearly Sen. Harris (D-CA) is making a run for president…

‘I’m Asking the Questions’: Sparks Fly as Dem Sen. Scolds Gen. Kelly at Hearing

Freshman Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) engaged in a testy exchange with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly over sanctuary cities. Kelly was testifying before the Senate Homeland Security Committee in defense of President Trump’s plans to curb sanctuary cities. Harris appeared increasingly frustrated with Kelly’s answers, and cut the retired general off a few times.. “We have a different view of the impact of some of the state rulings,” Kelly told Harris, before she cut in. Harris then said Kelly was giving sanctuary cities a “Hobbesian choice” between complying with federal law and risking civil liabilities in order to continue to receive federal funding. The normally unflappable Kelly grew irritated, and responded: “Had you not cut me off I would have said the same thing,” he said. After several exchanges and a few interruptions, Harris said “I’m asking the questions.” Harris again asked if Kelly was alright with “exposing” cities to liabilities when they entertain ICE detainer requests. “Before I start to answer, will you let me finish?” Kelly asked. “If it’s responsive to the question, of course,” Harris replied. Harris has been floated as a possible opponent to Trump in 2020.

..which is why she was acting this way.  It was purely showmanship in front of the cameras to play toward her Democrat base.  At the same time, however, she also stirred up the GOP base who are disgusted with her self-righteous, sanctimonious, arrogance and disrespect toward Sec. Kelly; a highly decorated, retired 4-star Marine Corps general.  Sec. Kelly is a man who has sacrificed for this great country in ways this obnoxious bitch couldn’t begin to fathom.  Heck, Sec. Kelly even lost his son in combat.  Someone oughtta just slap her.  Anyway, to see this exchange, click on the text above.  Unreal..
