  • CRASH AND BURN: Kamala Harris Plunges In New Poll Of 2020 Democrats

    08/20/2019 10:17:27 AM PDT · by mplc51 · 58 replies
    Sen. Kamala Harris made a splash at the first Democratic debate when she attacked former vice president Joe Biden for being racist. She soared up in the polls, but now she’s plummeting back down to earth. A new CNN poll puts Harris at just 5%, down 12 percentage points from the liberal network’s last survey in June. Meanwhile, Biden — whose numbers fell after his first shaky debate performance — now stands at 29%, up 7 points from CNN’s previous poll.
  • Kamala Harris’s Poorly Thought Out Gun Control Proposals

    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...
  • Kamala Harris is proposing a new kind of 'red flag' law to take guns away from racists

    Democratic presidential candidate and Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) has taken the concept of "red flag" gun confiscation laws a step further with a proposal to take guns away from white nationalists who might commit a hate crime. According to a policy proposal on her campaign website Wednesday, Harris said she would work to "combat and disarm violent hate" from white supremacists by pushing for legislation to give courts the ability to issue "Domestic Terrorism Prevention Orders" to take away the guns of "a suspected terrorist or individual who may imminently perpetrate a hate crime." According to the statement, such orders...

    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...

    Kamala Harris on Wednesday said if elected president she will press Congress to pass a red flag law that would allow law enforcement officials to temporarily seize the firearms of white nationalists that may be on the verge of carrying out a hate crime.The Democratic presidential candidate's proposal calls for the creation of “domestic terrorism prevention orders” that would give law enforcement and family members of suspected white nationalists or domestic terrorists the ability to petition a federal court to temporarily restrict a person’s access to guns if the person exhibits clear evidence of being a danger. “We need to...

    2020 presidential candidate and California Sen. Kamala Harris on Sunday called the Trump administration's decision to carry out immigration raids in the wake of two mass shootings a "campaign of terror." In an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, Harris noted the round-up of 680 suspected undocumented workers at several food processing plants in Mississippi on Wednesday. She believed that Hispanics were specifically targeted because the majority of detained workers were Latino. "This administration has directed DHS to conduct these raids as part of what I believe is this administration's campaign of terror, which is to make whole populations of...

    The latest Quinnipiac Poll reveals that Harris has dropped to just one percent of support among black Democrats — one of the party’s most vital voting bloc coalitions. 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.

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)’s campaign press secretary suggested Russia was behind Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) after she landed an effective blow on Harris’ record as a prosecutor during the Democrat debates on Wednesday night. Her press secretary, Ian Sams, tweeted shortly after the attack an NBC News article from February 2019 claiming the “Russian propaganda machine” was promoting Gabbard: “Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,'” he tweeted. He later...

    CNN’s president, a media titan at the helm of a global news organization intensely covering the 2020 presidential election, has a longstanding personal rule against supporting politicians. He’s broken it once ⁠— for Kamala Harris when she ran to become the first woman of color to hold the office of California attorney general a decade ago. “Kamala is not just important for the city of San Francisco, the state of California, but for the entire country,” Jeff Zucker, then president of NBC Universal, told guests at a breakfast at NBC’s Rockefeller Plaza office in August 2009, according to reporting by...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday unveiled legislation that would be the first step in implementing the Green New Deal, outlining plans for addressing how environmental plans affect low-income communities. The draft bill is designed to address what the lawmakers describe as the third pillar of the Green New Deal — ensuring that no community gets left behind. Dubbed the Climate Equity Act, the legislation lays out steps for Congress and the White House to “guarantee that the policies comprising a future Green New Deal protect the health and economic wellbeing of all Americans for...

    Senator Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) released a health-care proposal on Monday that preserves a limited, tightly regulated, private-insurance market, finally articulating her position on the role of the private market after struggling to do so throughout her early primary campaign. Harris’s plan, which comes days ahead of the second round of Democratic primary debates in Detroit, represents a more moderate approach than that championed by Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), who has called for the total elimination of the private health-insurance market. Like Sanders, Harris would allow every American access to an expanded Medicare program, but she would also seek...

    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.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 7/5/19 | Stacey Matthews
    In contrast to how her performance was hailed and praised by liberal commentators in the immediate aftermath of the debate, Harris’s debate night cheap shot at Joe Biden appears to have backfired on her spectacularly. I mean, you know it’s bad when even the Democrat-friendly mainstream media notices it and calls it out. While she may welcome the short-term gains that have come from putting a dent in Biden’s poll numbers and popularity, Harris may find long-term that her well-documented penchant for conveniently flip flopping may come back to haunt her.

    Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris is descended from Irish slave owner Hamilton Brown, the namesake of Brown’s Town in Jamaica, who recruited massive numbers of Irish migrants to Jamaica to work on his sugar plantations after the British empire abolished slavery. Kamala Harris’ father Donald Harris wrote an essay entitled “Reflections of a Jamaican Father” for Jamaica Global Online, in which he made a startling admission (emphasis added): “My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of...

    On Sunday, Kamala Harris expressed support for new, federally mandated busing policies. “I support busing. Listen, the schools of America are as segregated, if not more segregated, today than when I was in elementary school,” Harris said. “Where states fail to do their duty to ensure equality of all people and in particular where states create or pass legislation that created inequality, there’s no question that the federal government has a role and a responsibility to step up.”

    California Sen. Kamala Harris is one of the leading contenders for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. She has been one of the main proponents of giving reparations to the descendants of slaves with taxpayer funds. What makes this story, which was originally reported in March, more poignant now is that she has given voters the impression that she is African-American. But now a deep, dark secret from her family’s past could come back to haunt her platform and her campaign. And it comes at the hands of Harris’ father who has again become a thorn in the side of his...

    Sen. Kamala Harris is running for president in a very crowded field. Maybe the need to distinguish herself drove her to take the lead on anti-Catholicism. Or maybe, along with some of her Democratic colleagues, Harris, D-Calif., is playing the long game and is simply trying to institute a religious test for office that places Catholic teaching beyond the bounds of tolerable opinions. Harris this month went after Brian Buescher, President Trump’s nominee for a federal court vacancy in Nebraska, for belonging to the Knights of the Columbus. This is damning, Harris’ questions implied, because the Knights is “all-male,” because...
  • Kamala Harris launched political career with $120K 'patronage' job from boyfriend Willie Brown

    Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998. The medical commission met twice a month, and Harris, a United States senator...
