    Sen. Kamala Harris (D–Calif.), who is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, says that if elected she will push legislation that would authorize federal courts to issue gun confiscation orders against people who express opinions that may indicate an intent to commit a hate crime. These "domestic terrorism prevention orders" would "temporarily restrict a person's access to guns if they exhibit clear evidence of dangerousness," including "violent racist threats or anti-immigrant manifestos."
  • Kamala Harris’s Poorly Thought Out Gun Control Proposals

    08/17/2019 3:26:36 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | August 17, 2019 | John R. Lott Jr
    Democratic presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) took flak for politicizing the shooting of police in Philadelphia on Wednesday. She couldn’t even wait more than an hour before pushing gun control. But there is a big problem with her solutions to have more regulations for gun dealers. She didn’t even yet know how the attacker got his guns, but it is delusional to think that any regulations on gun dealers are going to significantly stop drug dealers from getting guns. She announced again on CNN Wednesday that she wants “to take the licenses of gun dealers who violate the law.” What...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/16/2019 | Monica Showalter
    As we've said more than once, Kamala Harris has an authenticity problem. This characterization, from Thomas Lifson last month, pretty well sums her up every time a Kamala Harris story comes to light: Kamala Harris is scary in her pathological ambition, moral flexibility, comfort with deception, and sheer ruthlessness. So here's a new one, from California watcher Susan Crabtree at RealClearPolitics, reporting Harris's soapboxing at the second presidential debate: “So in my background as attorney general of California, I took on the big banks who preyed on the homeowners, many of whom lost their homes and will never be able to buy...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) pushed her gun control agenda in an interview Wednesday with CNN's Wolf Blitzer during the Philadelphia police shooting. Harris, speaking of the El Paso shooting, said President Trump may not have pulled the trigger but he did supply the ammunition with "racist rhetoric." Harris said law enforcement should be allowed to seize guns from those "suspected to be involved" in domestic terrorism. "I'm prepared to say that law enforcement should be allowed to seize the guns of those who are suspected to be involved in domestic terrorism," Harris said. "I agree with Harry...

    Vox tried teeing this up yesterday while distancing themselves from the truth, but the Washington Post delivers on its fact-check against Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. Both Democratic presidential candidates campaigned last week on the need to solve the “murder” of Michael Brown in Ferguson five years ago. Chief fact-checker Glenn Kessler calls them both out for their “galling” refusal to acknowledge that the Department of Justice found plenty of witnesses to contradict the charge that Brown had been “murdered”: Witness 102, a 27-year-old biracial man: “Brown was ‘wrestling’ through the window, but he was unable to see what...

    Title: CNN CHANGES CHYRON FROM 'FAITH LEADERS' TO 'CONTROVERSIAL PASTOR' AFTER REVEREND WON'T CRITICIZE TRUMP CNN was criticized this week for changing a Chyron from stating "faith leaders" to controversial pastor" when the interviewee would not criticize President Donald Trump. In the segment Monday, host Don Lemon asked Reverend Bill Owens, founder and president of the coalition of African American Pastors, to comment on the closed door meeting he and 19 other black faith leaders had with Trump, after the president criticized Congressman Elijah Cummings. The Chyron read: "CNN Alert: President Hosts African American Pastors And Faith Leaders At The...
  • Nursing Home Resident Takes Kamala Harris To Task Over Her Health Care Plan

    California Senator Kamala Harris probably wasn't expecting much of pushback at her campaigns stop in Iowa Monday. When the "Medicare for All" advocating leftist stopped at the Bickford Senior Living Center in Muscatine, one resident point-blank told the 2020 presidential contender to not mess with her health care and questioned how on Earth she planned to pay for it. The video released by the GOP War Room shows that a woman calls Sen. Harris over, saying, " Can I ask you a question?" "I understand that you are advocating health care for everyone," the unidentified woman says to Harris. "Yes,...

    Full Title: Watch Kamala Harris get owned by a nursing home resident who tells her, don’t mess with our health care Ah, the primaries … when lumbering socialist dolts like Bill de Blasio finally leave Manhattan and try to act natural at the Iowa County Fair. Of course, de Blasio is drawing crowds in the teens in Iowa, but what about up-and-comers like Kamala Harris, who’s now a solid second-tier contender along with Pete Buttigieg? Harris visited a nursing home where she was asked the same question she’d been asked and will continue to be asked: Who’s going to pay...

    DES MOINES — A Democratic presidential field that has struggled to precisely define its general election indictment of Donald Trump appears finally to have found it. In the wake of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas — the latter of which was tied to a suspect whose anti-immigrant sentiments led to the killing of 22 people — candidates are road-testing a withering argument that draws a direct line between gun violence and the president’s racist rhetoric. “We are living with a toxic brew of two different things, each of which is claiming lives and each of which represents a national...

    Democrats are panicking. In the wake of his many gaffes and shaky debate performances, many view front-runner Joe Biden as unable to go the distance, and unlikely to beat Donald Trump if he succeeds in winning the Democratic nomination. Which of the more than 20 other candidates in the race would be a better bet, they wonder? This is where the angst sets in. Elizabeth Warren is too radical, Bernie Sanders too angry, Beto too absurd, Mayor Pete too young, Cory Booker too annoying, which leaves….Kamala Harris. She’s tough, she can debate, as a woman of color she checks numerous...
  • Iowa corn poll may signal trouble for Joe Biden (24%). (TRUMP WINS 97% TO BILL WELD 3%)

    'Ear this, America: A uniquely unscientific poll of Iowa voters suggests Joe Biden is struggling to maintain his front-runner status in the Democratic presidential primary race. Just 24% of Iowa State Fair goers “voted” for Biden by dropping a kernel of corn in his jar in a fair display designed to predict the winner of the nominating contest. The vice president out-husked his closest rival, Pete Buttigieg, who drew 16% in the Cast Your Kernel contest. Sen. Elizabeth Warren was right behind with 15% and Sen. Kamala Harris took 11%. That margin reflects a closer contest than most national polls,...
  • CNN Fails to Note Crime Jumped After Colorado Gun Control

    On Saturday's CNN Newsroom, during an interview with former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, CNN host Ana Cabrera failed to inform viewers of some very important facts as she discussed the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate's successes in passing gun control in his home state in 2013. As the CNN host asked the Democratic presidential candidate about the issue of how to get at least some Republicans to go along with such measures, she failed to note that violent crime has increased substantially in Colorado every year since the passage of more gun control in 2013. What's more, violent crime had been...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — A campaign staffer for Bernie Sanders was screamed at by a local photojournalist who was repeatedly shoved following the Vermont senator's remarks at the Iowa State Fair. The confrontation erupted after members of the campaign relentlessly pushed the local journalists to make room for Sanders as he made his way to various attractions at the fair on Sunday. The press pool erupted in chaos as Sanders left the campaign event, which was hosted by the Des Moines Register. "Do not put your hands on me. You keep pushing me," the female photographer yelled at the staffer....

    Three front-runner Democratic presidential candidates in the last month have aligned themselves with a pastor who says being gay is 'enough to send you to hell.' Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker attended services at Reverend Robert Fowler Sr.'s Baptist church over the weekend and independent Senator Bernie Sanders held a town hall at the church last month. Although it's not clear if any of the candidates, who are all ardent supporters of LGBTQ rights, were aware of Fowler's comments on homosexuality, his position on it is no secret.

    More details have emerged about President Trump’s $5,000 donation to Sen. Kamala Harris nearly a decade ago. Court records reviewed by Fox News show disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman solicited the contribution from Trump and his daughter Ivanka in 2011. “Mr. Schneiderman’s former transition committee leader asked my daughter Ivanka if she would arrange for me to make a contribution to a fundraising event sponsored by Mr. Schneiderman for newly elected California Attorney General Kamala Harris,” Trump wrote in an affidavit. “In response, I made a $5,000 contribution to Ms. Harris’ campaign — the highest level of...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a presidential candidate, said in an interview broadcast Sunday that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election made clear that race is the “Achilles heel” of the U.S. “[T]hey decide to attack what is the strongest pillar of a democracy, which is free and open elections … And they tried out a bunch of different things. And you know what caught heat? The issue of race. So Russia exposed America's Achilles heel,” Harris said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And all of a sudden then, guess what? For those who want to marginalize the conversation about...

    As Democrats descend on Iowa to kick off a six-month sprint to the first primary vote, party activists are increasingly anxious that former vice president Joe Biden, the consistent polling leader, has not disposed of persistent questions about whether he is well-equipped to take on President Trump. Adding to the Democrats’ nervousness is that a clear alternative has yet to emerge. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) is rising in the polls and has a high-quality campaign organization, but doubts linger in some quarters about the appeal of her left-leaning policies in a general election. Sens. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.) and Bernie...

For black Democrats, Harris is the last 2020 Democrat pick amid the party’s leading presidential primary candidates, following former Vice President Joe Biden with 47 percent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with 16 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with eight percent, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) with two percent.
