'Biden-Harris 2020'? It's Actually the 'Harris-Biden' Ticket...

It may be "Biden-Harris 2020" on the ballot, but it's really Harris '21-'22-'23-'24, and she is a perilous Trump opponent.

“We must make our election between economy and Liberty, or profusion and servitude.” —Thomas Jefferson (1816)

It’s official. Joe Biden was informed by his campaign puppeteers that they chose leftist Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), an ineffective junior senator, for the bottom (read: “TOP”) of his presidential ticket. They completed the selection of Biden’s [Insert Woman of Color Here] requirement just in time for the Socialist Democrat Party convention commencing Monday.

Apparently, neither Michelle Obama nor Susan Rice passed Joe’s “sniff test,” both with too many skeletons in their closets. Harris, in Biden’s estimation, is the “first mainstream African American [woman] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking [gal].”

This ticket will be “a storybook, man!”

Biden’s remote invitation to Harris from his basement was completely scripted, we presume so he would recall with whom he was speaking.

On Harris, Biden said: “I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead. Kamala is that person.” By “ready to lead,” he means ready by high noon on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021, to step in and name a leftist replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has been propped up by a 2x4 since Donald Trump took office.

Harris is a fraud, neither a truth-teller nor a moderate. She is far more liberal than Hillary Clinton

Within minutes of Biden’s announcement, both The New York Times and the Associated Press described Harris as a “pragmatic moderate” whose record is “relatively centrist.” That would be the same leftist tabloid of record which previously provided unflattering details on why Harris’s presidential primary campaign failed, noting she was “the only 2020 Democrat who has fallen hard out of the top tier of candidates” and “proved to be an uneven campaigner who changes her message and tactics to little effect.”

Even Fox News host, the spineless Chris Wallace, declared, “You know, she is not far to the left despite what Republicans are going to try to say.”

Only in the alternate Marxist universe occupied by Leftmedia propagandists does Harris qualify as “moderate” or “centrist.” Harris’s Senate record affirms she is a card-carrying socialist, but you can expect to hear the “moderate” and “centrist” adjectives repeatedly — until November 4th.

And the Leftmedia better toe that line — recall that a gaggle of the nation’s most influential leftist women already put the media on notice about any criticism of Biden’s female VP. In a memo to “News Division Heads, Editors in Chiefs, Bureau Chiefs, Political Directors, Editors, Producers, Reporters, and Anchors,” these women warned that no criticism of Harris would be tolerated.

Of course, the American Communist Party was quick to endorse the Biden-Harris ticket, but qualified their endorsement noting: “Biden is not ‘better’ than Trump, in any meaningful way — except that he is not Trump. The struggle against this fascist regime needs to include voting against Trump by voting for Biden.”

Interestingly, there was no “Harris bounce” for Biden’s ticket after the announcement. In fact, though we put little credence in a CNN poll, Biden’s lead over Trump narrowed after the Harris announcement.

On his handler’s choice of Harris, David Axelrod, Barack Obama’s chief strategist in 2008 and 2012, suggested that Harris was not Biden’s choice, noting “others Biden considered may have fit more comfortably into partnership with him,” and suggests the “someone else” his handlers should have chosen was Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

But political analyst Ben Domenech outlines the reasons Harris was chosen, noting as we have previously, first and foremost “This is going to be the Harris Administration with Joe as a figurehead.”

Notably, regarding the Biden campaign’s big demographic play for multitudes of emotionally incontinent liberal women voters, I thought they had dispensed with that antiquated binary gender construct. As Matt Walsh notes: “‘Woman,’ by the light of the Left’s philosophy, is an arbitrary concept. It has no substance. It is not objective. It can mean anything and be anyone.”

Fact is, Biden’s handlers, as well as a majority of Americans, already know he’s just a placeholder, or, as Joe calls himself, a “transitional candidate.” His strategy is to remain hunkered and bunkered through Election Day — and they are working on a strategy to avoid presidential debates altogether. Biden’s handlers are also considering keeping Kamala in the basement, the strategy being to let the hatred for Trump defeat him without ever making their own policy objectives clear.

If elected, we estimate Biden will likely resign as early as his first year in office due to his progressive state of dementia, so Democrat voters know they’re casting their presidential ballots for Harris.

(Incidentally, the last time the nation was saddled with a placeholder president was in 1944, when it was evident to his inner circle that Franklin Delano Roosevelt would not survive his fourth term. His handlers thus tapped Senator Harry Truman (D-MO) as his successor.)

Cleary, the LONG delay in selecting Harris was caused by big changes in the political calculus after Biden and his Democrat race-bait tag team, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, spent the last 10 weeks fomenting race riots in their Demo-controlled urban centers nationwide. They spuriously claimed that American justice is replete with “systemic racism” from top to bottom.

Thus, having incited mobs of radical leftists, Biden’s handlers were faced with a “Harris problem”: Now that Democrat opportunists had incorporated into their campaign the black supremacist Marxists operating under the Black Lives Matter brand, they needed to find a black female who wouldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Stacey Abrams’s racially charged radicals to her left, nor upset the sensibilities of the more moderate Demo supporters and independent voters to her right.

The problem with Harris is that, despite her effort to portray herself as a “progressive” former prosecutor, even The New York Times concluded that she “was often on the wrong side of history when she served as California’s attorney general.” By “wrong side,” the NYT means “right side,” which is why the far Left may reject her as the next president.

After adopting the “defund the police” mantra, Biden puts the former chief law enforcement officer (attorney general) for the most populous state in the nation (California) on his ticket?

Bernie Sanders’s former national press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, summed up the problem: “We are in the midst of the largest protest movement in American history, the subject of which is excessive policing, and the Democratic Party chose a ‘top cop’ and the author of the Joe Biden crime bill to save us from Trump. The contempt for the base is, wow.”

Outlining a few of Harris’s more egregious offenses as AG, Loyola law professor Lara Bazelon declared in The New York Times: “Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.”

Further, in 2014, after a federal judge ordered the release of nonviolent offenders for parole in California, then-AG Harris argued that her state prisons would lose “an important labor pool.” (Talk about keeping black folks on the Demo plantation…) Harris never apologized for that assertion, and she hopes Biden’s constituents will forget about her record as a “Draconian Prosecutor.”

By the way, despite her record of locking up pot smokers, recall that when asked if she had smoked marijuana, Harris responded, “Half my family’s from Jamaica — are you kidding me?” That was funny, except the “stereotype” drew a strong rebuke from her father, who responded: “My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not, with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Willick pondered, “Can a prosecutor win the Democratic presidential nomination?” We will see.

Moreover, when her black supporters find out she is the direct descendent and beneficiary of slave-holders, will that pass the sniff test or will the cancel Harris?

And speaking of her family line, there is that pesky constitutional question about her eligibility to be president. The question about Harris’s citizenship is much more legitimate than the spurious questions about Obama’s citizenship. But who pays attention to that fallacious errancy of so-called “Birthright Citizenship” these days…

Unfortunately for Harris, Trump, who calls her Biden’s “political living will,” brilliantly preempted her “criminal-justice reform” recovery platform by working across party lines to enact reforms last year.

As it stands, Biden’s handlers believe Harris will appeal to enough moderates and independents to make up for the radical leftists who see her as a political prop, and blacks who see her as lacking a real connection to their community. But to bridge that gap, Harris has endeavored to adopt radical socialist policies from Bernie Sanders.

Harris votes with Sanders on 92% of legislation and was his socialized healthcare cosponsor. She also cosponsored with Sanders the so-called “Green New Deal” and, of course, cosponsored the absurd $14 trillion “reparations rebate.”

She also supports open borders, free healthcare for illegal aliens, and compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to the KKK.

Moreover (and as fodder for Trump campaign ads), Harris’s problems with Biden are no small matter.

In the second Democrat presidential primary debate last year, Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard confronted Harris about her record as California’s attorney general — claiming her tough-on-crime policies were unjust. In an effort to recover, Harris attacked Biden for his support of racist segregationists. She also asked for an apology from Biden — which he didn’t deliver.

But alas, her standing in the polls dropped after those summer confrontations, and she never recovered, ultimately withdrawing from the race in December.

Of course, Biden’s campaign was on life support too, as he finished a dismal fourth in Iowa, fifth in New Hampshire, and got clobbered by 26 points by Bernie Sanders in Nevada. But once he received the endorsement of Demo House Whip Jim Clyburn just ahead of the South Carolina primary, he regained momentum on Super Tuesday (or “Super Thursday” as Biden gaffed it) for a first-place finish.

A bigger problem would be that on April 3rd last year, after several women accused Creepy Joe of sexual assault, Harris declared, “I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.”

So, she has joined the ticket of a man who she believes panders to racists and is guilty of sexual assault?

Just who is the real Kamala Harris? There are personal profiles and policy primers, but suffice it to say, she’s to the left of Sanders and former Cherokee candidate Elizabeth Warren.

On a personal level, Harris is most assuredly not the product of poor and unwed parents, as was the case with Barack Obama. But like Obama, she only had one black parent, and her parents divorced when she was only seven, which is why she grew up primarily in Canada.

Her mother was a scientist who emigrated from India, and her father was a Stanford University economist who emigrated from Jamaica.

Despite that academic pedigree, Harris graduated from second and third tier colleges, Howard University and UC Hastings Law School. She owes her career to the “helping hand ” she received from California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, who gave her a $120K “patronage job,” while he and Harris were having an extended affair. Brown was 30 years her senior, but she didn’t let that interfere with the doors he could open for her. Ironically, Brown advised Harris to pass on Biden’s offer to join his ticket.

Harris is now married to a white leftist lawyer, Douglas Emhoff, and they live in a posh multimillion-dollar Brentwood mansion. They list millions in assets.

So much for a connection to working-class blacks, who constitute one of the Democrats’ most loyal constituencies.

In 2017, after six years as California attorney general under leftist Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, she succeeded California leftist Senator Barbara Boxer to serve with aging Senator Dianne Feinstein, where Harris made a name for herself leading the disgraceful Senate mob’s obstructionist confirmation hearings of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

So, what does Harris do for the Biden ticket? Again, in effect, this is a Harris-Biden ticket, and the reason why last year I put Harris at the top of my speculative list of Biden running mates is because I estimated then, as I do now, that as the real Biden placeholder, she’ll be the most difficult opponent for Trump to beat. That will be especially true given the millions of dollars allocated for swing-state advertising, funded by the “Archenemies of Liberty,” George Soros, Tom Steyer, Jeff Bezos, and Michael Bloomberg.

Billionaire socialist Soros has made clear that the CV19 pandemic provides a “revolutionary moment.” You know, leftists never let a good crisis go to waste! According to Soros: “I would describe it as a revolutionary moment when the range of possibilities is much greater than in normal times. What is inconceivable in normal times becomes not only possible but actually happens. People are disoriented and scared.”

Harris also has the backing of Soros’s socialist heir apparent, his son Alexander, who said: “I decided she would be the pick. I told my dad and he agreed. The rest was just a formality.”

According to uber leftist Michael Moore: “Kamala Harris is one of the most progressive Senators in the US Senate and will be the most progressive Vice President in the history of the United States. … She checks nearly every box on Bernie’s platform: Living Wage, Choice, LGBTQ+ equality, peace, child care, etc. … Our movement is on fire now, tens and tens of millions of us in the streets, at the polling sites, at home, organizing online, young people at the forefront, Black America once again saving us and forcing us to be what we say we are but never were. This is our moment.”

As political analyst Marc Thiessen observed: “The left sees these people, a Biden-Harris ticket, as a Trojan horse. … Hiding inside is an army of socialists led by Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and the rest and they’re going to come pouring out as soon as he’s through the White House gates and impose a left-wing agenda on the United States.”

Indeed, it’s the “Biden-Harris 2020” campaign, but in reality if that ticket wins, it will be Harris ‘21-'22-'23-'24.

She is a perilous Trump opponent. But Trump’s greatest adversary is not Harris or Biden — it’s the amount of unmitigated hatred the Left and their Leftmedia propagandists harbor toward Trump.

That not withstanding, all that race calculation doesn’t change the fact that, as I have noted previously, “The great irony about the Biden’s VP race-pandering charade is that the Democrat Party is the most enduring monument to racism in America.”

As for Biden, he will spend the weeks until the election refining his skills as a historical revisionist – particularly in regard to his decades as a do-nothing politician. He denies his support for the Iraq War, the fact he was AWOL during the civil rights movement, lying about his record of putting immigrant “kids in cages,” and his claim he did not oppose opposition the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. Biden has been, consistently, perennially wrong on foreign policy.

Of course, he is now trying to rewrite both what he said and did not say regarding CV19. As I have noted, our nation is very fortunate that President Trump’s policies positioned the nation’s economy to be very strong ahead of the Covid pandemic. Had this been a “Clinton economy,” we would be in far worse shape than we are now.

Finally, in a public forum on 14 September, Harris referred to “a Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States.” The next day, Biden referenced “the Biden-Harris administration.” In Biden’s case this might have been a “slip of the teleprompter,” but the point stands. Harris is at the helm and she is a perilous threat to Liberty.

Update: After four days of obfuscation about who the real Joe Biden is, as anticipated, the Democrat convention hardly referenced the Biden-Harris agenda, offering little more than platitudes and sleight of hand, making clear that their strategy is to run on hatred for Trump.

PS: Because I know you want to get this right… Kamala says her name is not “CAMEL-uh” or “Kuh-MAHL-uh” or “KARMEL-uh,” but but rather “COMMA-lah or CALM-ala.”
