Kamala Harris – Strike Two for Democrats

kamalaCall it two strikes, as Democrats swing wildly to beat Trump-Pence:  First Joe Biden, now Kamala Harris.  Recent events put me in mind of 1932’s World Series when powerhouse Babe Ruth pointed to the far wall – and slammed a ball out of the park.  Playing conditions had to be perfect – and were. They might be again.

First, the Democrats select a presumptive candidate with obvious cognitive problems. He keeps stumbling – without end.  Substantively, he seems to represent everything and nothing.  If elected, he will fill government top-to-bottom with leftists – and effectively be done.

Strike two?  Kamala Harris.  Who is she, and why did Biden pick her?  She is an ambitious, young, black, female Democrat senator from California, ranked “most liberal” in 2019.  See,  https://www.foxnews.com/politics/kamala-harris-scored-most-liberal-us-senator-2019.

Her record is stunning – for sacrificing personal integrity and principle for advancement.  While having an extramarital affair with a Speaker of the California Assembly, he appointed her to state boards that gave her $400,000. See,  https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/01/kamala-harris-life-career-california-senator/.  After admitting to helping Harris, the Speaker confided she later threatened to indict him. See, https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/01/28/willie-brown-says-kamala-harris-threatened-him-with-indictment-after-their-affair-that-helped-launch-her-political-career-718281.

When in vogue, Harris styled herself a “tough prosecutor.”  That seemed the ticket.  As a district attorney and state attorney general, she charged parents with crimes for truant children, used family-tracking by DNA, pushed to confiscate private property prior to charges (that is, preemptive civil forfeiture), protected illegal immigrants (including felons), yet had a low win percentage and was found by the California Supreme Court to have violated defendants’ rights. See, https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Judge-rips-Harris-office-for-hiding-problems-3263797.php.

As an opponent of gun rights, Harris went after manufacturers, sought to enforce an unconstitutional bar on pictures of guns in retail advertising.  Notably, a federal judge in 2018 found the latter effort “unconstitutional on its face.”

Running for president, her campaign derided the 2nd amendment:  “If Congress fails to send comprehensive gun safety legislation … within her first 100 days as president—including universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, and repeal of the NRA’s corporate gun manufacturer and dealer immunity bill—she will take executive action … “ See, https://townhall.com/tipsheet/elliebufkin/2020/08/11/in-bid-for-white-house-harris-promised-to-usurp-constitution-in-quest-for-gun-control-n2574165.

While these priorities sync with socialism, the national tone shifted in 2016.  Being a prosecutor no longer cut it with the left.  Harris swung left. She pushed anti-Trump Russia collusion, impeachment, obstruction of freedoms, anti-law enforcement, pro-illegal aliens, centralization.

Harris joined the socialist parade, in 2018 trying to defund federal law enforcement, including Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  She has since gone along with “defunding” police and refused to condemn violence in 200 cities.

On cue, she favored federalizing healthcare – Medicare-for-All, which economists say would bankrupt the country, and AOC’s socialist “New Green Deal,” massively redistributing wealth. See,  https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/august/where-biden-running-mate-kamala-harris-stands-on-policies-like-the-green-new-deal-and-late-term-abortion#:~:text=As%20far%20as%20policies%20go%2C%20Harris%20supports%20%22Medicare,contraception%20coverage%20in%20health%20insurance%20on%20religious%20grounds.

Harris’ record on religious freedom – is horrific. She fought against religious rights of private business owners in Hobby Lobby, promotes abortion up-to- birth, and suggested Catholics may be unfit for the federal bench based on their religious affiliations. See, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burwell_v._Hobby_Lobby_Stores,_Inc.;  https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/kamala-harriss-anti-catholic-bigotry/;  https://thefederalist.com/2020/08/12/kamala-harris-adds-abortion-extremism-to-democratic-presidential-ticket/.

The last is notable.  Harris and fellow lefty Senator Mazie Hirona (D-HI) – who recently denied ANTIFA violence – both condemned Catholics, including judicial nominees, who join the “Knights of Columbus.” See, https://news.yahoo.com/kamala-harris-outrageous-assault-knights-103024721.html.

Harris’ assault on that group is remarkable.  John F. Kennedy, running for president as a Catholic in 1960, faced exactly this bigotry. He was a member. While nominally religious, the group was founded to promote “charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism.”

JFK’s condemnation of Harris-like bigotry would today make him unelectable – at least as a Democrat. Ironically, the KoC fought for patriotism, against the Klan, and included all races.  It worked closely with the NAACP to battle racism and bigotry.  All that seems lost on Harris.

So why did Biden select Harris? The answer:  Biden is aging fast, low on energy. Democrats have shifted hard left – putting all marbles in the socialist basket.  Harris represents a young, shameless play to leftists and identity politics.  At heart, it is a cynical act.  Democrat leaders think Democrat voters – do not think.  They imagine them voting blindly for skin color, female gender, dependence – not independence.

The strategy is empty. Strike three is coming.  Why?  People care about their future, more than voting skin color or gender.  Trump defends liberty, and people like it.  They want to speak, worship, assemble, travel, work, defend, and avoid government overreach. They are not stupid.

Trump raised the economic wellbeing of men and women of all races, creeds, ages, and dispositions – no interest in differences, only common bonds.  He expanded opportunities for self-improvement, rather than punting decisions to government. People like that.

Trump reintroduced leadership abroad, demanding fair trade.  At home, he stands for rule of law, not rule by politics.  On that principle civil societies stand.  He will not defund police. He will protect institutions, citizens, private property – urban, rural, and suburban.

The Harris gambit sets up strike three.  Democrats are desperate. Harris checks all Democrat boxes – socialist, malleable, ambitious, vocal, young, black, female, government credentials, anti-religious, pro-abortion, defund police, moral relativist, and vigorously anti-Trump.

They miss hard questions:  Do thinking men and women, who rightly consider themselves American first, really vote on skin color or gender? Do those who love individual liberty want socialism?  Do those who suffered the Obama-Biden economy want more of that? Do more people vote for fear or facts, dependence or self-reliance, welfare or work, riots or peace?

No, Biden was strike one, and Harris is strike two.  If Americans turn up at the polls – strike three for Democrats is coming.  And say, wait a minute, I think I see Trump pointing for the far wall.

None of it matters. The Democrats will continue to force universal mail-in balloting. This will be very effective in their quest to steal this and every future election until they are able to complete the destruction of our Republic. Doesn’t matter which clown they nominate. Ballot box stuffing anyone?

Both presumptive DEMOCRAT nominees for the Pres. and Vice Pres. have mental issues. Joe’s is plainly obvious. Harris’ is obvious when you see comparisons of her speeches side by side where she completely disagrees with herself on various issues. I think Harris is the kind of person who will say anything to win an argument. Stepping back for truth is not in her modus operando. So, i just can’t believe the DEMOCRATs actually plan to run Mr. Biden for the Presidency. I suspect they have something up their sleeve. I think the DEMOCRATs plan to nominate Joe and within a few weeks , let Joe ‘discover’ that he has a mental issue and withdraws’. And at that point, since the DNNC convention is long over, there will be a “vacancy” that only the DNC can fill. So, who do they have in mind ? Who is their secret , stealth, hidden candidate ? Could it be Kasich or Romney, or Whitlessman or Bernie or Hillary or , dare i say it, Tulsi ? Only time will tell. Clearly , Mr. Biden has something mental going on . I know that most DEMOCRAT politicians are crazy . But i also don’t think they’re that crazy .
And what’s all this about “peaceful” “protestors” ? On the same night as the DEMOCRATS were lying to us about the nature of the anarchists , arsonists, and thugs in the streets of Portland , Oregon, those thugs were violently beating innocent passersby . So, while the DEMOCRAT “leaders” are all using the word : peaceful , their “peaceful” “protestors” were beating the crap out of innocent people . DEMOCRATs are LYERS ! !

It’s obvious that Harris expects to be president and I think that’s the plan. We’re all in trouble if President Trump is not re-elected, including the leftists!

Long before selecting Harris it was said a black female would be the running mate. Can you imagine the uproar if it had been said the undecided running mate needed to be a white male only?

It’s really quite shocking that in America ANYONE could support anti gun,anti religion,open border, socialist politicians seeking to ruin Our Country and destroy Our Freedom!
What independent people with a God given common sense and intelligence could EVER vote for this?

Quote: “Democrat leaders think Democrat voters – do not think.” The leaders are 100% correct. They are cult members and their mantra is “Vote Blue, No Matter Who.” That is not the sign of intelligent voters.

How has the USA come to THIS?! Why has our educational system dropped the ball so often and quit teaching functional history just to teach kids what is on the state ‘How Are We Doing?’ test? Young folks only know what they are taught or learn from other young folks (the old ‘blind leading the blind’ shtik), and apparently that is not much. People with no actual life experience are fixing to trash the USA into oblivion, which is their goal anyway.

California is a wasteland. I am a native, currently living in Maryland, I remember driving to Monterey, and thinking about how the roads are poorly maintained, and feeling sad for the once wonderful place to live and grow up.

I love a good joke and laugh. These two are two peas in a pod. I wouldn’t be laughing if they were elected however. How sad and just shows how far left the Demo/socialists have gone. Anything to win and anything to transform America into whatever they feel is right for their agenda. Time to pray hard folks! May God help open our fellow American’s eyes.

You know Biden himself didn’t pick her. All the people around him did. He put himself into a corner. Biden, if he had been in his right mind, would have chosen someone like Atlanta’s mayor. She has moral standards at least.

Anyone that will vote for a biden/harris ticket is a UN-AMERICAN, UN-PATRIOTIC IDIOT.

This is the worst Democrat ticket I have seen in my lifetime. I don’t see how any thinking patriotic American with an ounce of common sense could consider voting for them. The most patriotic thing anyone who can’t vote for Trump on election day can do is stay home.

Excellent article with reference points I’ll be using through November.

The hypocrisy from the left continues with her selection. I’m sure Biden didn’t select her and it’s the hope of the dems that she will draw out every socialist/communist and people of color to vote for them. She may draw them out but at the same time she will incite the good Americans to ensure they will not win. November is just around the corner….

Mr. Charles nailed it with this commentary. But, please stop calling them “Democrats.” They are now all Progressive-Socialists.

You are so right on everything you said. The thing is when in a voting booth if you perchance decide to cross parties and say vote for President Trump instead of the demoncrat on the ticket. You are not allowed. Also you can’t in any booth I’ve been in change parties the day of election. Someone needs to look into this.

No American could possibly want this for our country!
Vote straight Republican! These socialist must be stopped to save this beautiful country and live free!

Three Point Paper

Point-1. With all the Hub Bub about Kamala Harris, and/or Joe Biden being bantered about. The genuine choice for who needs to be/remain President/Vice President of Our United States is a simple one! President Donald J. Trump, and Vice President Mike Pence are the person(s) who are the logical choice, to remain in office, period!.

Point-2. With President Trump, and Vice President Pence winning the the day come November 2020. Along with Genuine Conservative Republicans winning the day, for *Both* the House and Senate; It is only then, that the Leftist-Liberal, Socialist Minded Radicals of the “So Called” Democratic Party, shall be fed their required amount of *crow*!.

Point-3. Once the aforementioned is accomplished, then Our Country can and shall get back to genuinely being, the United States Of America, and To The Republic For Which It (She) Stands; With far less interference from the “So Called” Democratic Party members! What a great time for Our Country this shall be too!.
