    Just sick. Hasn't been three hours and Kamala starts in the gun control stuff. https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris "Simply horrific. I'm grateful to the first responders who are on the scene in Gilroy, and my thoughts are with that community tonight. Our country has a gun violence epidemic that we cannot tolerate." ***Just the right time for political opportunism.***

    Sen. Kamala D. Harris has vaulted into the lead of the Democratic presidential race in her home state of California, said a new poll released Wednesday. She climbed to 23% support as former Vice President Joseph R. Biden faded to 21% in California, making the race too close to call, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.

    If you are born in Guam or Puerto Rico, you are automatically granted citizenship. If you are born in American Samoa, that isn't the case. Despite American Samoa's status as a U.S. territory, the people who are born there aren't technically U.S. citizens. They're called U.S. nationals, a status that means they pay American taxes but cannot vote, run for office, or serve on a jury. They also have special passports that declare them nationals, but not U.S. citizens.

    Kamala Harris started out the 2020 primary cycle as a potential frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination. Instead, Harris looks as though she won’t finish in the top three of her own home state. A new poll from UC Berkeley shows the former state attorney general and current senator in fourth place, well behind Joe Biden and two of Harris’ Senate colleagues from the East Coast: The findings from a UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies poll, done for The Times, provide bad news for some of the contenders, starting with Sen. Kamala Harris. …Although Biden leads the race,...

    There is one reason and one reason only why Kamala Harris made a big splash when she declared her candidacy for president in January and then shrunk in a crowded field since then: Harris is not who she presents herself to be. And that realization tends to dawn on people after she exhausts her talking points and must demonstrate more than being telegenic and effusive. Harris looks dazzling at first sight. She has a great personal story. She’s been wildly successful in her career at every step of the way. But Harris’ story of who she really is eventually douses...

    According to lawsuit, longtime Harris aide demeaned his executive assistant Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., expressed surprise and frustration when reports first surfaced last week that a longtime aide had settled allegations of gender discrimination last year — attributing her lack of awareness to a “breakdown” in communication. But the California Department of Justice received notification of the suit three months before Harris left her position as state attorney general, according to a new report. According to a lawsuit, Harris confidante Larry Wallace demeaned and retaliated against Danielle Hartley when she worked as his executive assistant at the state Department of...

    Kamala Harris (aka Kamel Hump & Harass) is famous for her pompous way of asking questions in Senate hearings. So I scanned Google Images to find a picture of Harris to turn into a meme.  I soon discovered a couple of interesting facts: It's hard to find a picture of Harris standing in a group.  You can find endless pictures of her sitting behind a desk or standing behind a lectern.  Then I looked it up and discovered that she and Chuck Todd could be twins because they are both 5 foot 2 inches tall.  So this is why she...

    Randall Marquis has lived in California for 31 years, but he knew it was a mistake when he received a notice last month that said he was newly registered to vote. He may have a state driver’s license, but he’s a citizen of Canada. “When I saw that card, I just threw it out,” Marquis said. “I know I’m not going to vote. I’m not allowed to vote, it’s stupid that I should be registered to vote.” The Newport Beach resident, who has a green card and is married to a U.S. citizen, was one of some 1,500 people who...

    It appears now that the Progressive/socialists that have taken over the Democrat party have been looking for the new shining star for the next Presidential election. Just a few weeks ago they rebranded themselves as “the Better Deal”. They speak well of jobs and infrastructure, and better wages for workers. Does anyone believe that anything has changed? Remember Obamas “fundamental transformation” of our country and how eight years of Obama did transform this country. Lower wages, lower respect from the world, and more division in the country because of the identity politics forced on the American people. The progressive/socialists have...

    The “official” kickoff for the 2020 presidential election is the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. Only seven months until another enthralling, action-packed plot line is layered atop the ongoing Trump-TV presidential reality show. After much thought and consideration about the 2020 presidential race, I am emboldened to predict that California U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris is likely to be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Kamala Harris Harris has yet to officially declare, but her actions indicate all systems go. As a loyal Republican since 1975, conservative writer and political observer, I base my prediction on the following five reasons...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who has been more of a team player since losing the 2016 GOP presidential primary to Donald Trump, is reemerging as an agitator in the GOP conference. Cruz is questioning Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) strategy on the GOP's 2018 agenda, which is to steer clear of partisan bills that don’t have Democratic support. Cruz, who is up for reelection this year and faces a spirited challenger in Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), is leading a group of restive conservatives who want to vote on a budget resolution that would set up a special process —...

    A government lawyer told Australia’s High Court on Tuesday that it could not take a constitutional ban on dual citizens being elected to Parliament literally when deciding the fates of seven lawmakers. Solicitor-General Stephen Donaghue told the High Court judges that five of the lawmakers, including three government ministers, should not be disqualified from Parliament for breaching the constitution because they did not voluntarily acquire or retain citizenship of another country. The hearing began on Tuesday and is expected to take three days. Under Section 44 (i) of the 116-year-old constitution, “a subject or citizen of a foreign power” is...

    Sen. Ted Cruz improperly accounted for Goldman Sachs loans he acquired during his 2012 Senate campaign, the Federal Election Commission ruled on Thursday. In a unanimous vote, FEC commissioners decided that the nearly $1.1 million in loans made to the to the campaign by Goldman Sachs and Citigroup should have been disclosed to voters and the American public. The final report from the FEC is expected in 30 days, and further action, such as penalty for Cruz, will be decided, should the FEC decide to initiate an “enforcement action” at a later date. But Cruz’s office said this is “old...
