Kamala Harris is Biden’s Pick

harrisIt’s official. Kamala Devi Harris is selected as Joe Biden’s running mate in the 2020 presidential campaign. And, all eyes are upon her. Why? It is widely speculated that should Biden demonstrate further cognitive decline if elected, she could quite possibly become our Commander in Chief should the Democrats win the ticket.

Professionally, Harris is a U.S. Senator from California and formerly served as the 32nd Attorney General of California (2011-2017) and the 27th District Attorney of San Francisco (2004-2011). Harris ran for the Democratic nomination for President in the 2020 election before ending her campaign in December of 2019 due to lack of funds to proceed. She holds degrees from Howard University and the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

Harris, a native of Oakland, California, is the 1st woman of color to be named as a vice presidential running mate. The 55-year-old is also the third female U.S. Vice Presidential nominee of a major political party, following in the footsteps of Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin. BBC reports that Harris is the daughter of a mother from India and her father is from Jamaica. Her parents have been described as activists.

Per the list.com, Kamala Harris is married since 2014 to spouse Douglas Emhoff, an entertainment lawyer. Harris is the stepmom of his two children from a previous marriage. Per the list.com, in 2018, Harris and her husband reported a combined income of $1,884,319. Together, as of a 2019 Forbes article, the couple is said to have a net worth of about $6 million, some of which is tied up in real estate. If the Biden/Harris team is elected, Emhoff would become the first Second Gentleman of the United States.

Fox Business News and others have declared Harris a radical VP pick for Biden, citing it is bad news for American workers and economic recovery and lurches Democrats further left. Harris, per a Fox Business report, has a purported poor understanding of the working of the economy. Giving an example, Harris dismissed the strength of the pre-pandemic labor market and stated that people in America are working two and three jobs. Whereas, realistically, about 5 percent of employees hold more than one job, some by choice rather than need. Fox Business credits President Trump’s implementation of pro-growth policies that have incentivized private-sector job growth, bringing the unemployment rate to a 50-year low pre-pandemic.

In addition, the media suggests that a Biden/Harris ticket could be more trouble than what voters are bargaining for as they are beholden to Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders. Sanders is expected to maintain influence over the Democrats through embracement of his “unity” platform that consists of some of the most radical economic reforms in our country. Biden’s willingness to bend toward Sanders’ progressive economic blueprints to secure votes is why some suggest that he and Harris are mere puppets on a string. Voters beware.

Joe and the Ho… Or is it Dumb and Dumber?

I heard parts of the speeches Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave yesterday, their “first date”. What a disgusting, disingenuous attempt to pin the pandemic on President Trump. Harris said there was only one reason why the unemployment rate is so high, “and that is Trump”…not even having the respect to call him “President Trump.” Just awful.

What this pair have in store for America is nothing short of another attempt to “get it right”, another chance to infect a free America with Obama/New Green Deal/Fraud Squad political sentiments. Don’t fall for it, my friends. Anything left that remains of an America we want to preserve for our grandchildren will vaporize in a flash if they win the election in November.

It won’t be Biden sitting in that chair; it will be Harris and her leftist cohorts pushing for trillions of dollars worth of giveaways. Still we’re hearing this cr^p, and we know they’ll reap millions of votes because of the promise of free college, universal health care, and all the other goodies you and I and other hard-working taxpayers will be forced to pay for. Is that what anyone wants?

A couple of people I know live where Harris wielded her heavy gavel, and they, as democrats, are going to sit out this election. I will encourage them to vote, to WalkAway from their party.

TRUMP 2020, or else we’ll be stuck with this!

Yes yesterday’s speeches by both Biden and Harris were an example of an alternate reality as seen through the eyes of two anti-American, pro socialist puppets that have been bought and paid for. They both read from their prepared scripts, that ithers wrote for them, and of course they viewed everything through the lens of “It’s all Trump’s fault” or just made up lies to fit the narrative the left is trying to sell America.

One would think that such transparent lies and attempted manipulation of the public would be obvious to most Americans. However, sad to say, there are a lot of bitter, angry people out there, that what to blame everyone else for their own personal failures. The “it’s somebody else’s fault that my life isn’t as good as I feel it is entitled to be” crowd. These are the people that the Democrats appeal to.

The Democrats sell that you’re a victim. That you deserve more and the government is there to take it from someone else and give it to you. That if you can’t succeed on your own at anything, the government will just take care of you from cradle to grave. These are the now the core base of the Democrat party today and for them the ONLY thing that matters is punishing someone else for their own failures, so that they can live the lifestyle they feel they are entitled to. Such people don’t think beyond what they want at the moment. Socialists have always played to this portion of the public. So the ruinous consequences of a Biden / Harris win mean NOTHING to these people. Example: Listen to the incoherent rants that come from people rioting or even just protesting in the Democrat cities. They can’t even articulate anything resembling a coherent thought. Same holds true if you go to virtually any college campus today where they are screaming about the wonders of socialism or communism. Ask them for specifics on anything and what you get back is an emotionally, incoherent rant.

Every single American that doesn’t want this country to quickly go down the tubes as a result of a Biden / Harris win MUST vote this November. There will be NO do overs as the Democrats will quickly enact changes to make future elections meaningless.

This is exasperating. It seems that Republicans look for ways to legislate sensibly within the law, by traditional Constitutional means. But democrats look for ways around the law to get what a handful of radicals want to inflict on all the people, using the oldest trick in the book–appealing to people’s weaknesses (greed, sloth, envy). Yes, it’s much easier to appeal to someone’s sense of entitlement than it is to convince that person that the reward-for-effort capitalist system is more beneficial to the individual and to the country as a whole.

If Biden and Harris win, we’ll need to prepare ourselves for a long menu of executive orders…a Socialist Stew. Then, when there’s no more money in our pockets, we will have to surrender property. And that’s the whole point of this strategy–to become a more Socialist Union, far from perfect.

It will be our own stupid fault if this comes to pass. What’s “stupid” is not reelecting President Trump because of some silly tweet. Get over it, people; there’s much more to lose if he loses. So, of course, I will vote for the Trump/Pence ticket.

Great break for Trump today. Harris is a narrowminded , bigoted , narcissistic dim bulb who proved totally unable to run for national office
during the primaries. During senate hearings, she insults those who are being interviewed and loves to grandstand. She’s all
about “look at me”.
If the constitution were changed, one key change would be to not allow presidential candidates to pick anyone they chose to run for VP.
That procedure could allow Harris to be our president ( god forbid) and will make her the Dem frontrunner in 2024 which she so richly
does not deserve. I’m sure now I have labeled myself as antifeminist. I don’t care. What women could be effective presidents ?
There are plenty. Name them ? Nicki Haley and Condoleeza Rice for starters.

This racist, shag her way to the top Communist hag is pure evil. She wants to take all guns from US citizens. She must be stopped.

She MAY be a naturalized citizen-not definitive. I don’t trust a person who flip flops more than a Summer sandal! She will say and do, to whomever necessary, anything to get what she needs. Her actions over the years have proven that the only person she advocates for is herself.

We should devote 100% of our energy to getting to the bottom of whether she was born in the United States. Forget anything else — this will be the silver bullet.

Reviving the birther movement is a good way to lose in November.

We need to keep our eye on the ball and leave the conspiracy theories on the stable floor where they belong.

Kamala Harris is NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN! … Her mother is from India and her father is Jamaican. … Most interestingly, her father’s ancestors were slave owners!!! She is a naturalized citizen. Just another know it all attorney looking to enrich herself in money and power thru politics at the expense of the American taxpayer.

That about sums up what “value” she brings to the Biden campaign Rik. Should enough of the American people actually be stupid enough to elect Biden, it’s not like either Harris or Biden wil actually running anything anyway. That power will rest firmly with the team of handlers that the Obama / Sanders / Soros, who both drafted the entire Democrat campaign platform for 2020, but also are choosing the people that surround them with in the White House. So pay less attention to the two puppets on very short strings, but rather on the puppet masters that will be calling all the shots.
