    What do Stokely Carmichael, Harry Belafonte, Colin Powell, Sidney Poitier and Busta Rhymes have in common? And how are Beyoncé, Ava DuVernay, Barack Obama and Kamala Harris alike? None of the first set is descended from American slaves. All of the second are descended from slave-owners. Much of the media and the political establishment is pushing the idea of reparations for black Americans. But, as these lists show, it isn’t obvious who should get paid and who should pay. Consider the case of Kamala Harris. Should her Indian mother pay reparations to her Jamaican father for his partial ancestry from...
  • Progressives Sour at Kamala Harris: ‘The Contempt for the Base Is, Wow’

    Members of the far-left soured at Joe Biden’s (D) selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate, expressing disappointment establishment Democrats did not heed the calls of progressives, many of whom supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during the primary race. While Harris attempted to brand herself as a moderate during her presidential campaign, her record proves the label is inaccurate. Despite that, Harris is failing to resonate with many progressive voters, particularly given her controversial prosecutorial record.

    President Donald Trump and his team are already nervous about the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate, Nicolle Wallace said on Tuesday night. “This was the pick that scared them the most,” the MSNBC host said. Trump, she noted, simply doesn’t have the capacity to see a VP as someone to help run the country. “He only saw this in terms of a ‘casting’ for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate,” Wallace said. Trump and his team believe Harris will more than handle Vice President Mike Pence...

    President Trump says that he is happy Joe Biden has picked Kamala Harris as his running mate, saying that the Californian Senator was his “number one draft pick”. In comments made during a press briefing, Trump said of Harris “She is a person that’s told many, many stories that weren’t true.” “She’s very big into raising taxes. She wants to slash funds for our military at a level that nobody can even believe.” Trump continued. He added “She is against fracking. She’s against petroleum products. I mean, how do you do that and go into Pennsylvania or Ohio or Oklahoma...

    Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA (RCPUSA), has endorsed Joe Biden for president. Mr. Avakian, who has led the party since 1979, says he doesn’t particularly like Mr. Biden, but that electing him is necessary for “the overthrow of this system, as the fundamental solution to the continuing horrors this system causes for the masses of humanity.” That “system” is our self-governing republic with its constitutionally guaranteed rule of law, property rights, the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly, and free market economics. All of this has produced the freest, most prosperous and most generous nation...

    The father of Kamala Harris is Donald Harris, an immigrant from Jamaica, who taught economics at Stanford University. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from London University in 1960. Six years later he received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of California- Berkeley. He retired from Stanford as a professor emeritus of economics in 1982. He joined the Stanford faculty in 1972 and his focus according to the University was "exploring the analytical conception of the process of capital accumulation and its implications for a theory of growth of the economy, with the aim of providing thereby...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin offered Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., some advice about running as a vice presidential nominee -- as the California Democrat becomes only the third woman ever to do so. “Congrats to the democrat VP pick,” Palin said in a post to Harris Tuesday. “Climb upon Geraldine Ferraro’s and my shoulders, and from the most amazing view in your life consider lessons we learned.”

    Summary: Joe Biden currently has a robust lead in polls. If the election were held today, he might even win in a landslide, carrying not only traditional swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania but potentially adding new states such as Georgia and Texas to the Democratic coalition. But the election is not being held today. While the polls have been stable so far this year, it’s still only August. The debates and the conventions have yet to occur. Biden only named his running mate yesterday. And the campaign is being conducted amidst a pandemic the likes of which...

    Never Trump stalwart Bill Kristol, the former editor and founder of the now-defunct Weekly Standard, tweeted Tuesday that the presidential debates should be canceled in favor of three vice presidential debates. Kristol commented in the wake of former Vice President Joe Biden’s announcement that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be his running mate in the 2020 presidential election. “Just an innocent thought: We’ve seen Biden in office for over four decades, and we’ve seen Trump nonstop for the last four years,” Kristol tweeted. “We’ve seen enough to make up our minds about them. So let’s skip the presidential debates but...

    Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton applauded Joe Biden’s running mate choice on Tuesday. The Democrat power couple took to social media shortly after Biden announced that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be his vice-presidential nominee to laud the decision. The couple, in particular, praised Biden’s choice, asserting that Harris would be a strong governing partner in the White House.
  • Is Kamala Harris eligible to be Joe Biden's VP?

    Is Kamala Harris a natural born citizen? Harris is constitutionally ineligible to be VPOTUS (12th Amendment) or POTUS (Article 2). She is not — nor can she ever be — a natural born citizen... Harris was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, to an Indian citizen mother and a Jamaican citizen father. Thus, Harris is a native-born American citizen, or a citizen pursuant to what I refer to as the anchor baby provision of the 14th Amendment. Harris may be a native-born American citizen by the accident of her birth and in my opinion an erroneous 14th Amendment...

    President Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump's donations to Sen. Kamala Harris's (D-Calif.) California Attorney General Campaign gained renewed attention after she was named former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate in the 2020 general election. According to the California Secretary of State, the Trumps donated a total of $8,000 to Harris's campaigns from 2011-2014. Trump, a former real estate tycoon and television personality, announced his candidacy for president in 2015, and has not held public office before that.

    Once Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate for the upcoming 2020 election, it didn’t take long for the media to begin its latest attempt to gaslight Americans.In the Associated Press announcement of Biden’s choice, AP writers Kathleen Ronayne and Will Weissert write approvingly of Harris’s “centrist record” as a contributing factor in the decision. Longtime political analyst and lobbyist Doug Schoen praised Biden’s pick while arguing Harris “could help Biden solidify his position among centrist voters and even moderate Republican voters.”Not to be outdone, The New York Times characterized Harris as a “pragmatic moderate.” In...

    The week before I married on my family’s homestead in Alaska, we found out Sarah Palin had been picked to be Sen. John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate. This was big news for Alaska. Nearly everyone we knew was thrilled, even people who weren’t huge Palin fans. At the time, Palin was a popular governor who’d made a name for herself fighting a corrupt good ol’ boys system that had prevailed for too long in state politics. She was a Republican, but seen as a moderate who was willing to work with Democrats and take on powerful special interests, including the...

    On Tuesday, presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden announced his running mate, the Democrats’ Great Intersectional Black-Asian Female Hope, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). Harris ran against Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary but she dropped out last December after lackluster debate performances, citing insufficient funds to continue the campaign. Here are five things to know about Kamala Harris. 1. Attorney General baggage After serving as the district attorney of San Francisco (2004-2011), Harris won a close race to become California’s attorney general (2010-2017). In that position, she took a tough-on-crime stance that would become extremely controversial in the 2020 primary. Harris...

    Of Course, It’s Harris Well, that happened. To the surprise of a very few, Joe Biden chose Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate. Our very own VodkaPundit called it back in May. I had been on the Harris veep wagon for a very long time but shifted in recent weeks to Susan Rice because I thought that would help Biden get the Obamas a little more enthusiastic about him. All the while, however, I kept hoping aloud that it would be Harris because — for reasons I’ll go over in this column — I thought that would be the...

    The non-partisan website rated Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) the most left-wing member of the Senate in 2019 — further left than “democratic socialist” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). In 2018, Harris was ranked the fourth-most left-wing. But by 2019 — a year she spent running for president — Harris had moved to the furthest extreme. She was an early co-sponsor of the Senate version of the “Green New Deal” of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), as well as the “Medicare for All” bill introduced by Sanders, which would have eliminated all private health insurance.

    The mood was light and happy on Morning Joe today, instead of the daily doomfest. All was right and just in the Democratic world. Mika Brzezinski quickly had to make the Kamala Harris choice all about her, showing a picture of her hosting Senator Harris at a "Know Your Value" event in California in December of 2018. Mika first claimed that Harris "cares about equality deep within her soul." Harris's biggest "equality" moment during the debates came when she attacked Joe Biden over his opposition to forced busing. But when asked about it during her vetting, she laughed it off:...
