It’s Kamala Harris: Joe Biden Makes His Pick
Democratic presidential Joe Biden has made his pick: It’s California Senator Kamala Harris. The former Vice President tweeted out the decision this afternoon. Biden describe Harris as a “fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants.”
I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.

In a second tweet, Biden mentioned how she had worked closely with his late son Beau, when both were Attorneys General.
Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.

Biden has long insisted he was going to pick a woman of color. That’s only part of the story. The nation is filled with honorable and accomplished women of color. Biden’s nominee needed two additional qualities for Democrats to let her on the ticket:
- She needs to be a progressive eager to “fundamentally transform” the United States of America
- She needs to be willing to say or do anything to gain or keep power.
And on both counts, Harris fit like a pair of yoga tights.
Given that 69% of the American public believes Biden will not serve out his term, if elected, we should take a closer look at the junior senator from California, Kamala Harris.
What Do We Know About Kamala Harris?
What do we know about Kamala Harris?
She is very dangerous. It is Kamala Harris, who as California’s Attorney General, brought criminal charges against David Daleiden for exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby-selling operation. She is willing to imprison journalists who expose her political allies. We’re told Trump is a threat to a free press if he tweets that CNN’s Jim Acosta is a loser. Kamala Harris actively tried to put a journalist who threatened her interests behind bars. Imagine what she’d do with the full force of the presidency.
She is very ambitious. It is Kamala Harris who bedded the very powerful … and very married … California politician Willie Brown, giving her career a boost. Working women of America, you down with that? She’s also reportedly behind efforts to sabotage other females up for the VP job. So much for sisterhood.
She is very selfish. Kamala Harris kept an innocent man on death row, and was accused by the Daily Beast and Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard of keeping prisoners locked up after they were eligible for parole in order to have cheap labor for the state. She also laughs off her own marijuana use, while being responsible for jailing countless marijuana offenders.
She is unrepentant. Kamala Harris strongly insinuated in a June 2019 Democratic debate that Joe Biden was a racist. Politico reported that Biden pal and co-chair of his VP vetting committee Sen. Chris Dodd has issues with Harris. First, he’s still concerned about how Harris implied Biden was a racist. Second, that she hasn’t expressed any regret. This being 2020, the Woke then jumped on Dodd, complaining Harris is being held to a standard that wouldn’t apply to a man. (Forgetting that Joe Biden wouldn’t even be considering Harris if she were a man. Meanwhile, isn’t it the height of tokenism to pick a woman of color that people of color don’t even like? But I get ahead of myself.)
She has a glass jaw. Harris was supposed to be a leading contender for the nomination. She was actually flying high after smacking Joe Biden around with the “racist” charge. And then, in a matter of about 60 seconds, fellow candidate Tulsi Gabbard destroyed her in a debate. Blew her up. Ended her without breaking a sweat.
She is nasty. She didn’t try to rebuke Gabbard. Instead, she and her campaign went straight to the gutter.
She is really nasty. She’s so cold she’d freeze the petals in the Rose Garden. Recall how snotty, arrogant and petulant she was towards Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings. Harris also declared Kavanaugh a rapist. Even though as a former prosecutor, she knew darn well Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation had more holes than a cheese grater.
She is unlikable. Don’t believe me? Ask Democratic voters. The more they saw of her in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, the less they liked her. Don’t believe Democratic voters? How about her hometown newspaper? The Sacramento Bee urges Biden to pick Rep. Karen Bass over Sen. Harris. If your own peeps would prefer a Castro-loving communist to you, you’ve got people issues.
She Went All In on Jussie Smollett hoax
She is very, very dumb. Harris was all in 100% on Jussie Smollett’s hate crime hoax. If she could be fooled by something so obviously faked, obviously ridiculous, what is Iran, China and Putin going to be able to pull over on her?
Or she is very, very cynical. She figured it was bogus, but went along with the hoax anyway. An abominable hoax that ripped at our racial tensions, sent Chicago police scurrying, and slandered every white MAGA person in America.
Or there is another option: She was in on the Smollett hoax. She’s personally tight with Smollett. She is a mentor to the inept and dishonest Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx. And seems curious how she quickly used the hoax to help propel a federal lynching law that had little to do with lynching.
But even if we give her every the benefit of the doubt, did she ever apologize to Trump supporters or anyone else for perpetuating Smollett’s lie?
Your Next President?
All told, has Sen. Harris shown any of the skills necessary to lead the country, prosper our country, let alone bring the country together? Has she shown a servant’s heart or only served her own interests, that of her political sponsors, and the radical left? Each voter has to look closely at her record, and know the answer.
For as sure as lemonade on a sunny summer day, Sen. Harris will be President of the United States before long if Biden wins in November.
