So Kamala Harris has thrown her hat into the ring for the Democrat nomination for President in 2020. She fits all the identity boxes, much as Obama did. She is African-American, (or Jamaican or Indian-American, take your pick) she is fairly photogenic, she’s female and most important, she hates Trump. Declaring her candidacy on Good Morning America on Martin Luther King Jr. day meant that the audience she was most looking to connect with had the time to hear her deliver her talking points without any interruption.
She claims that throughout her career she has focused on keeping people safe, something that is hard to disagree with, everyone wants to keep people safe. But has she actually accomplished that goal? Let’s look at her past that the media will not let the American people know and see just what she has accomplished.
The Sacramento Bee has made known that $400,000 was paid by her Attorney General office to settle a harassment claim against her top aide Larry Wallace. Wallace had worked with Harris since the days of her being San Francisco District Attorney and yet even after the settlement, Wallace was promoted to state director when Harris was elected to the Senate. Harris, of course, claims she knew nothing of this and only became aware when the Sacramento Bee started asking questions. The mainstream media being the obedient lapdogs that they are nodded their heads like the go little lap dogs that they are and never mention this in any reports. Would they be so compliant if this had been Donald Trump?
Advocates for criminal justice reform in the State of California have stated that the Office of Kamala Harris was “part of the problem and not the solution”. When the progressives pushing for criminal justice reform requested she embrace these reforms, she ignored and actively opposed any reform and looked to uphold the wrongful convictions obtained through wrongful convictions by official misconduct, evidence tampering, false testimony, and exculpatory evidence.
A Superior Court judge in San Francisco ruled that the DA office under Kamala Harris violated the constitutional rights of defendants in drug cases where it was proven that Deborah Madden, her lab and samples supervisor mishandled evidence that leads to the dismissal of hundreds of drug cases and let criminals go free. Kamala Harris and the other prosecutors under her purview knew that Madden was not dependable and again, Kamala Harris claims to have known nothing of the miscarriages of justice that her office allowed to happen.
Kamala Harris throughout her entire California career has weaponized law enforcement of those who do not hold her views or who would speak up about the criminal way that she has done her job in the past.
The people have spoken up about the mistreatment of David Daleiden. In 2014, the Center for Medical Progress of which David is a part released videos of Planned Parenthood discussions, admitting and laughing about the sale of aborted baby parts. Planned Parenthood fought back, hiring Fusion GPS of Trump false dossier fame to fight back and claim the videos were edited. They never denied these discussions took place, or that what David Daleiden released was wrong, just the videos were deceptively edited, a claim since debunked.
It was then that Kamala Harris got involved. After a donation of $81,000 from Planned Parenthood Kamala Harris, who was serving as California’s attorney general got to work on a feeble attempt to discredit both Daleiden and the videos. In 2016, a search warrant was made out for Daleiden and his home was searched and videos were taken to prevent them from being released and to prepare a legal case against David. This breach of law was then passed to Harris successor Xavier Becerra who filed 15 felony charges against both the Center for Medical Progress and Daleiden. This is a clear abuse of the law and the criminal process. The videos in question were taken in public places, and filing felony charges for what investigative reporters have done for decades is a violation of the right on an innocent man.
In 2008, the citizens of the state of California voted to define marriage as between one man and one woman in Proposition 8. As Attorney General in 2011, Kamala Harris refused to defend Prop 8 in the state Supreme Court from legal challenges even though the Californian electorate supported it. Once again, Kamala Harris ignored the will of the people that had elected her and worked towards overturning the Proposition.
Kamala Harris also attempted to usurp the rights of gun owners and sales. In 2014, she attempted to force gun stores from showing images of handguns in public. This was later struck down by a federal judge on the grounds of violation of the 1st Amendment. Offering no proof linking this law to a decrease in handgun crime, the federal judge ruled that this was nothing more than a “paternalistic approach to limiting speech.”
On immigration, the laws have been severely damaged by Harris. Sergio Garcia, an illegal immigrant has been admitted to the California State Bar by then-Attorney General Harris. She knew or should have known that the California State Bar disqualifies anyone who has committed a crime. Harris did care about the laws and expressly forced through a new law to make him eligible. Harris declares that illegal immigration is a “civil violation and not a crime” even though entering the country illegally does carry criminal penalties. A VISA overstay is a civil violation that should lead to deportation, entering the country illegally, working in the United States under false pretenses is a crime and coming back after deportation are criminal.
But like the rest of the progressive socialists, they need the votes. In California there are millions of illegal immigrants, I see them every day. But California, being an unconstitutional sanctuary state. Or state government will not allow any arrests to be made and in fact work against ICE and CBP to let these immigrants free after performing crimes that would put American citizens in jail. Harris wants less funding for beds in the federal immigration system, a conclusion that makes no sense. She says we should take funding away because the conditions are inhumane, but wouldn’t fewer beds even make it more so. What Harris really wants is to take away all funding and letting those in the system to be given a full run of the country. She has also come out against hiring more Border Patrol agents and wants to reduce funding for immigration enforcement. She is in line with the progressive socialist open border cabal, and like the rest of them, cannot explain how this will make our country better.
Harris, who undoubtedly thinks she is better than the citizens of this country has also taken a troubling stance on Christians and their beliefs. Both Harris and the man-hating Mazie Hirono of Hawaii attempted to question Brian C. Buescher from Nebraska who is a Trump judicial nominee on his association with the Knights of Columbus. Calling the nominee fundamentally bigoted and denying human right to the LBGT community for holding to the Christian belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman. The Knights of Columbus also opposes abortion. The Knights of Columbus also supported Proposition 8 mentioned above as did a majority of California voters, and which Harris refused to support the citizens wishes to get the proposition overturned as mentioned above.
The religious bigotry shown by Harris is against our very own Constitution. In Article VI, clause 3 states that ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust.” But then, the law, the constitution and the freedoms that our country has enjoyed since its inception do not matter to Kamala Harris.
