By now I am sure that you have heard the news. Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as his running mate, and the mainstream media is lavishing her with praise. Of course the focus of the election coverage will soon return to Biden and President Trump, but the American people will want to keep a very close eye on Harris, because she could soon be the president of the United States. And I am not talking about in 2024 or 2028. At this point, Joe Biden’s mental and physical health are declining so rapidly that there is absolutely no guarantee that he will even make it to November. And even if he makes it to November and is able to win the election, there is no guarantee that he will be able to make it through his first term. Even the mainstream media is openly admitting that due to his advanced age Biden will probably only be “a one term president” and that he will likely hand the reins over to someone else in 2024. Everyone can see that Biden is not what he once was, and that means that Harris could move up to the top position sooner rather than later.
Biden and Harris are both being described as “moderates” by the mainstream media, and their similarities are being emphasized, but the truth is that they have vastly different temperaments. Biden is a very “friendly” creepy old man that likes to sniff hair and rub up against people at awkward moments. He very much wants people to like him, and he tends to try to get along with everyone as much as he can.
Harris, on the other hand, is a deeply ambitious “politician” in the worst sense of the word. She really, really, really wanted to be Biden’s running mate, because she believes that it is a major step toward becoming president herself. As soon as the 2020 election ends, her 2024 campaign for president will begin.
But far more concerning are her authoritarian tendencies. When she was the attorney general of California, she ruthlessly abused the power of her office, and as a candidate for president she proposed using executive orders to implement a brutal nationwide gun control program. So if Joe Biden wins in November you better pray relentlessly for his health, because Kamala Harris would be just one heartbeat away from the presidency.
A lot of conservative pundits are trying to characterize Harris as “very liberal”, and it is true that she has one of the most liberal voting records in the entire Senate…
The non-partisan GovTrack.us website ranked Harris the 4th most liberal member of the Senate, based on an analysis of legislation that she sponsored or co-sponsored through 2018, the first two years she spent in Congress.
In early 2019, Harris became one of the first Senator to support the Green New Deal, the radical proposal from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to end all fossil fuel use in the United States by 2030.
She also has supported the “Medicare for All” bill that was written by Bernie Sanders.
But it is important to understand that she is not a true believer in liberal causes.
Harris is just like so many other politicians that I have known over the years. She will literally say or do anything if she believes that it will further her political career.
If she thought that running commercials saying that “Kamala Harris is the conservative fighter that President Trump needs in Washington” would help her political career, she would run such commercials.
And no, I am not exaggerating.
Back during the Democratic primaries, Harris said that she fully believed the women that were accusing Joe Biden of inappropriately touching them…
“I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” Harris said at a presidential campaign event in Nevada.
But now she can’t say enough good things about Joe Biden, and that will last until it becomes expedient for her to turn on Biden.
Just ask Willie Brown. Kamala Harris would have never ascended so rapidly in California politics without her married boyfriend’s help, but once Harris didn’t need his help anymore she viciously turned on him.
She is one of the most power-hungry politicians that I have ever seen, and she will do whatever it takes to achieve her ultimate goal of becoming the president of the United States.
When she was running against Biden, Harris and her team spent hours evaluating exactly how to eviscerate Biden, and that resulted in that famous debate moment that everyone is still talking about…
While walking through her planned exchange with Biden over busing, Harris’ campaign planned for a variety of answers from him, from contrition to a more measured approach to the more forceful denial of the position that he ended up giving — a stance that was called out by fact-checkers as untrue given his past quotes rejecting the wisdom of busing.
Harris herself ended up settling on a line that within minutes would appear in social media memes and just a few hours later would be screen printed on t-shirts selling for $29 on her website: “That little girl was me,” she said, of her desegregated class.
But now all is forgiven, and Harris is Biden’s running mate.
Sadly, what Biden doesn’t realize is that he may be putting a female version of Frank Underwood just a heartbeat away from the presidency.
In part two of this series, I am going to detail some of the reasons why so many people use the term “authoritarian” when describing Kamala Harris. And considering the fact that we are moving into one of the most troubled chapters in American history, having an extremely authoritarian president during this time could be a complete and utter nightmare.
In 2016, we certainly dodged a bullet when Hillary Clinton lost the election.
Unfortunately, we may not be so lucky this time.
