The Most Cynical Leftist Combo In US History
By John Fredericks and Curtis Ellis
Joe Biden’s historic choice of California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate, the first African American woman to run for Vice President of a major U.S. political party is neither bold nor shrewd.
In fact, it’s the safest choice he could have made while bringing him nothing he already doesn’t have.
When New York City Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman ever elected to Congress ran for President in 1972 she paved the way for many women of color to seek and win elected office. Chisholm was a trail-blazer.
To the contrary, Harris is a political phony who’s quest for raw power has guided her career. Identity politics progressives may be taken in by her race and gender, but an examination of her record reveals a ruthless opportunist who is acceptable to the corporate overlords who have destroyed the middle class.
In the debates, Harris promised to scrap President Trump’s tariffs on China “on day one” just as Beijing has been asking. In doing so, Harris made herself acceptable to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as well as General Secretary Xi and Joe Biden.
Throughout her short-lived presidential campaign, Harris mislabeled China’s economic aggression as “Trump’s trade war.” This is a phrase the Biden campaign uses repeatedly. It puts her right in line with the empty suit at the top of the ticket.
But it does not bode well for the duo’s prospects in the general election.
Blue-collar Americans in the Rust Belt states crucial to victory in November know three things: it’s China’s trade war, not Trump’s, it began a long time ago, and until Donald Trump came along Washington never lifted a finger to do anything about China’s wholesale destruction of American jobs, farms, and industries. In fact, they followed Wall Street’s globalist lead to profit from enslaving the Chinese people while promising Americans retirement greeter jobs at Walmart.
PLAY THE RACE CARD
But Kamala sure knows how to play the race card. In the first Democrat debate of the 2020 presidential cycle, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received. Her hit on Biden was well-timed and well-rehearsed, with t-shirts for sale on her campaign website as soon as the debate concluded.
But this is all hokum, another example of how Harris will go to any length to bury her record as a prosecutor in order to appease the anti-police, identity-politics extremists controlling the Democrat Party.
As San Francisco DA, Harris prosecuted more pot smokers than any of her predecessors, and over 1,000 of those cases had to be dismissed. Then, as presidential candidate, she joked about smoking pot in college. Prison for thee, not for me, sayeth holy smokey Kamala.
“Say anything to get elected” is in Harris’ DNA. She opposed additional DNA testing to make certain a death row inmate was not wrongfully convicted. Later, when it was convenient for her presidential ambitions, she reversed herself.
OPEN BORDERS FOR CHEAP VOTES
She fell in line with the radical open borders crowd calling for unlimited immigration and unlimited taxpayer-provided benefits for anyone who shows up on our doorstep. She doesn’t care that the jobs illegal immigrants take were once filled by native-born Black Americans.
Urban voters are well aware of the competition poorly paid illegal immigrants pose, but Kamala is blissfully unaware. She has lived a privileged life; her parents were elite university professors and her entire adult life has been on the government payroll.
In her failed attempt at running for president, Sen. Harris gleefully embraced the new Democratic Marxists radical manifesto, calling for trillions of dollars in new taxes and backing Bernie Sanders’ government takeover of healthcare.
She also signed on to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ “Green New Deal” for America. The joke has it that the green new deal is a watermelon – green on the outside, red on the inside. Indeed, this power grab would raise taxes and install government economic planners, especially but not only in the energy sector.
Harris made clear the green new deal is about more than “climate change” to her, it’s about social change. Harris declared, “We need a Green New Deal based in climate and environmental justice, which means building a clean economy that protects communities that have been neglected by policymakers for far too long.”
In plain English, that means racial quotas in all federal hiring, promotion, education, housing, transportation, grants, investments, and regulations. Such quotas would soon become the norm – and later mandates – in all of society.
The rest of the Biden-Harris agenda includes cutting police funding, taking your guns, closing schools, and appeasing the CCP.
Kamala Harris has proven herself willing to do anything to climb the ladder to greater power. As such, she makes a perfect match for Joe Biden, an empty vessel willing to be filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.
In choosing Harris, who brings nothing to the table, Joe Biden has now completely ceded his candidacy and his campaign to the cancel culture mobs who roam Twitter, run the streets of Seattle, and Portland – and camp in the corridors of the DNC.
