No, Kamala Harris Isn’t A ‘Moderate’ — She’s A Radical Threat To America

The media are spinning Kamala Harris as a 'centrist' and a 'moderate.' In reality, she's a leftist who could be one heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

By Joshua Lawson
AUGUST 12, 2020

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 an additional Harris announcement for the Times, Jonathan Martin and Astead W. Herndon refer to Harris and Biden as “two moderates” who share “center-left politics.”

Yet an analysis of Harris’s voting record in the U.S. Senate, as well as policies she has proposed, reveal quite a different story. Her positions form an agenda nearly entirely in lock-step with the radical leftist ideology that has taken over the Democratic Party. Indeed, if Biden wins the 2020 race for the White House, Sen. Harris (D-Calif.) will find herself in a unique position to pose a genuine threat to the values that built the United States of America.

The Morning Briefing: MSM Plays a Preemptive Misogyny Victim Card for Kamala Harris

MSM Wants You to Shut It, Sexist

Joyous midweek greetings to all of you, my dear Kruiser Morning Briefing readers.

Well, we finally have something to talk about that isn't plague or riot-related, so I suppose we should be grateful for that. Unfortunately, it's Kamala Harris.

A LOT of Kamala Harris.

OK, the MSM too.

Neither are very palatable.

This story about the MSM was originally going to be a more generic stand-alone column that I was going to post yesterday. I had begun writing it before Biden announced his VP pick. Once he did,  I decided to write about that for the column instead and save the MSM hackery for this morning.

First, a brief glimpse at my column.

I admit that I thought Crazy Joe the Wonder Veep was going to choose Susan Rice but I kept hoping (on the record) that it would be Harris, because I think she's horrible and therefore gives Trump a ...

Don't Know Much About History

A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to be included in a group meeting with a former adviser to President Trump. At one point, this former adviser asked me what I thought conservatives needed to do to win over younger Americans. I replied that the most important step conservatives could take was to make sure that younger Americans were introduced to history. 

The left, I said, has made sure that a sense of pervasive oppression is all most young Americans know about the past. The young would not necessarily view history the way we do, but in knowing it better, they would realize that present arrangements were not inevitable or even necessarily desirable. Above all they should know that history is political. George Orwell was right: “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”

In recent decades the left has used its growing cultural power to paint the darkest possible picture of the history of our country and our civilization. This became apparent as the protests, triggered by the horrific, filmed death of George Floyd, devolved first into riots and then into an incipient Maoist-style cultural revolution. In place after place, rioters targeted statues, monuments, and other commemorations of American and Western history. Statues of Christopher Columbus were toppled or vandalized in several cities, as were statues of Confederate leaders.

Most politicians were all too eager to see such statues go. Virginia’s Democratic governor pledged to remove the magnificent statue of Robert E. Lee on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Minnesota’s Democratic governor allowed a group of demonstrators to tear down a statue of Columbus at the State Capitol, and California’s Democratic governor ordered a statue of the intrepid explorer removed from the once-Golden State’s Capitol.

Although Confederate leaders and Columbus were perhaps the preferred targets of the vandals, no statue of any white was safe. Other defaced statues included a World War I doughboy, Polish national hero Tadeusz Kościuszko, Winston Churchill in London, Scottish King Robert the Bruce in Bannockburn, St. Junípero Serra in California, and assorted abolitionists, American presidents, and Union soldiers in cities across America.

There are of course non-whites in the mobs intent on defacing the statue of any “dead white male” within reach, but the most striking thing was that the majority of the anti-white vandals seemed to be white themselves. These self-hating products of America’s schools have come to believe that people who look like they do have caused all the world’s problems. They have no pride in their country, in their ancestors, or in themselves.

What these people seek is nothing less than the abolition of America. After all, the rioters insist that the alleged “systemic racism” of police departments requires their disbanding. How can they want any less for all other facets of Western civilization supposedly stained by the same racism?

Of course, what the rioters believe is nonsense. The West has been the world’s most creative and benevolent civilization by far. America not only made enormous contributions to that creativity, but also was the first nation to enable large numbers of ordinary people to achieve a decent standard of living. It was the first nation to think the welfare of average people—the middle class—was important. There are dark chapters in the history of America and the West, but these have counterparts in the history of every other people and civilization. By contrast, its far more numerous bright chapters simply have no equal.   

This crisis may be a terminal one. When countries come to hate their past, they have no future. But the tools of recovery are readily at hand, if we have the wit and nerve to pick them up. We need to once again insist on the superiority of the West and the goodness of America.

We need to remind those who attack the European presence in the New World by tearing down statues of Columbus that this is the civilization that provided them with electricity and modern medicine. We need to challenge those so fixated on white racism to name any other place on the planet where those of African descent have fared better. This is the country whose people celebrated Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Joe Louis, and Jesse Owens even before its courts became deeply committed to racial equality. This is a people who made Barack Obama their president, Oprah Winfrey one of their richest women, and black athletes and entertainers too numerous to mention their most popular citizens.

We need to ask those who demonize whites to explain how they propose to live without their contributions in the future, given that the present would be unbearable without all the contributions made by whites in the past.

In short, we white Americans need to insist on the truth, stand up for ourselves, get off our knees, and stop apologizing.

Biden Plays the Catholic Card

Alexandra DeSanctis National Review August 13, 2020
In a speech in Ohio last week, President Trump remarked that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden aims to “take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment,” adding: “No religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God, he’s against guns.”

Biden took umbrage at this rather incoherent assertion, issuing a statement that called his faith “the bedrock foundation” of his life — though nowhere in his lengthy response did he mention Catholicism, the specific faith he professes. Some of Biden’s supporters used Trump’s comments as an occasion to tout Biden’s faith, such as this inaccurate tweet from The Lincoln Project:

"Joe Biden is a devout catholic and regularly attends Sunday service. The last time Trump went to church, he gassed peaceful Americans."

Trump Win Looking More Likely as the Race 'Tightens'

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner August 13, 2020

Just as Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his running mate and a week before the Democrats' virtual national convention is scheduled to begin, the basement strategy he's been pursuing, hailed as the political equivalent of the emperor's new clothes, was starting to look tattered and torn.

The Morning Briefing: Will Kamala Kill the Progressive Vote in 2020?

Harris Might Make Progressives Sit This One Out

Good Almost End of the Week, brilliant frequent readers of the Kruiser Morning Briefing.

We are still in an "All Things Kamala" extended news cycle and the barrage of hot takes and information about the woman of the hour feels like it's been delivered from a fire hose. Put mildly, there has been a lot to sift through since Tuesday, and I already knew a lot about her because she used to be my attorney general and my senator.

Among the many perplexing things about Joe Biden choosing Kamala Harris is how she affects the progressive voters. Progressives are still a sought-after constituency and that makes the former prosecutor and attorney general a curious choice.

I briefly alluded to Harris's less-than-stellar relationship with hardcore progressives in yesterday's Briefing. Early last year I wrote a post about progressives not being very shy with their condemnation of Harris's ...

How Biden’s Housing Plans Would Destroy America’s Suburbs
Shawn Fleetwood

If suburban voters begin to understand what Biden’s housing rule would mean for their communities, many would flock back to Trump, irrespective of what they think of his tweets.

Kamala Harris Will Cost Biden The Election For The Same Reason She Lost The Democratic Primaries

By Duane Norman
The Burning Platform

August 13, 2020

Tuesday afternoon, Joe Biden officially announced his running mate for his 2020 Presidential campaign – naming Kamala Harris his vice president. Although not the worst choice, seeing as how Stacey Abrams and Susan Rice were rumored contenders for the spot, Harris certainly no longer has that “new car” shine that Obama did in 2008.

In fact, one must wonder why Biden decided on Harris – amidst widespread calls from the left to defund the police – with Harris’ record of “backing the blue”. This is especially pertinent considering the sheer number of “Settle for Biden” voters who are essentially voting for the VP given Biden’s mental acuity (or lack thereof😞

Would the Military Side with Leftist Tyranny or with America?

Kurt  Schlichter
Posted: Aug 13, 2020 12:01 AM
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

The Democrats are wargaming how to steal the 2020 election, and after Grandpa Badfinger selected Lady Mac (Willie) Brown, their last best hope seems to be the military marching in and removing Donald Trump from the White House after he wins and they refuse to accept the election results. But will the military actually do the bidding of the coterie of Marxist Muppet masters with their fingers, ironically, up inside Joe Biden like he is a crusty, senile Kermit?

Which he is, except the real Mr. Miss Piggy isn’t a manifestly mentally incompetent socialist Trojan Frog.

And don’t even get me started on his veep, Botoxic K.

Between the perma-coup against the American people, the mainstream media’s myriad and shameless lies, and the Democrats’ election fraud agenda (including the Golden Ticket to anarchy that is mail-in voting), it is absolutely clear that the Democrats will not accept Donald Trump’s impending victory. It is also clear that their plan is to sow chaos when they lose, with outright ballot box-stuffing, riots, and endless counts and recounts, so that they can obscure Trump’s win enough to create a patina of fake doubt about the result. Then they will rush into some Hawaiian courtroom and get some Hawaiian judge to announce that the Delaware Basement Crustacean won the election. The idea is to then have a deus ex militaria where somehow the establishment gets reestablished forever at gunpoint. And the liberal elite is said establishment.
