Impeach Kamala Harris for Afghanistan Betrayal

Impeachment ensures Kamala and her boss won’t get any more Americans killed.

“Were you the last person in the room?” CNN’s Dana Bash asked Kamala Harris.

“Yes,” Kamala Harris nodded.

“And you feel comfortable?”

“I do,” she replied.

The subject under discussion was Biden’s disastrous decision to pull out of Afghanistan, preceding a civilian withdrawal with a military pullout, failing to coordinate with allies, and ultimately creating the nation’s greatest hostage crisis while arming the Taliban terrorists.

Kamala had boasted of being the ’last person in the room’ when Biden makes big decisions. When Biden decided to betray Americans and aid the Taliban, it was no different. Afterward the ‘last person in the room’ was also the last person to want to answer questions about her role in the fateful decision that killed 13 American military personnel and revived Al Qaeda.

After the Taliban seized Kabul, leaving Americans stranded behind enemy lines, Kamala ducked questions and left the country. When a reporter tried to ask her about the Americans left behind in Afghanistan before her flight, she giggled and replied that they couldn’t be a “higher priority”.

And then she flew off to Singapore where she toured flower gardens and had an orchid named after her while Americans were being beaten by the Taliban in the streets of Kabul.

Kamala also took time out to meet with Halimah Yacob, Singapore’s first female Muslim president, selected in a rigged election with no opposing candidates in which only Malaysians could compete, and to show off another outfit by leftist Singaporean fashion designer Prabal Gurung who had falsely claimed that, “anti-blackness that is woven into the DNA of America”.

After having done her part to disgrace America in Singapore, Kamala tried to duck questions about what was happening to the Americans she had left behind as hostages in Afghanistan.

Despite Singapore penning up reporters in a separate room and forcing them to ask questions remotely, she still had to face questions about what was happening in Afghanistan. Kamala tried to avoid responsibility, arguing that, “there’s going to be plenty of time to analyze what has happened” and assured the press that “we are singularly focused on evacuating American citizens, Afghans who worked with us.” By the time the evacuation had concluded, many of the Americans and the vast majority of the Afghans had been left behind under Taliban rule.

While Kamala Harris was happy to take credit for Biden’s Afghanistan policy and to put her stamp of approval on it when it seemed like a good idea, she’s been running from it ever since. Whether it’s dodging reporters or flying off to Asia, she doesn’t want to be the last person in the room anymore. But it’s much too late for Kamala to pretend that she had nothing to do with it.

As the “last person in the room”, Kamala Harris had made a point of taking a prominent seat at nearly every intelligence and security briefing. And though she only holds down the second spot, she is in some ways more culpable for the disastrous moves in Afghanistan than Biden.

Kamala Harris visited Afghanistan more recently than Biden as part of a Senate Intelligence Committee oversight trip. As a Committee member during the years that Biden was out of office, she had access to classified information that he did not. While there were plenty of recent reports warning of an imminent collapse in Afghanistan, she would have been seeing reports for four years before Biden and had a clearer picture of recent developments in the country.

And, unlike Biden, she can’t plead dementia.

Nor was Kamala just deferring to her boss. During her visit to Afghanistan in 2018 and during her failed presidential primary campaign, she laid out essentially the same positions as Biden.

In 2019, Kamala Harris went on MSNBC’s leftist Rachel Maddow gabfest to attack President Trump’s withdrawal plan as irresponsible and fumed that a commander in chief has to “understand the seriousness and the severity of one`s decisions”.

There’s no apparent sign that Kamala understands the seriousness and severity of turning the Taliban into the heaviest armed Sunni Jihadist group on the planet or of betraying our allies.

“I was in Afghanistan days before he made that decision, and, Rachel, when I was there, I spoke with generals and I spoke with troops. There was an active conversation happening around negotiating what should be the future of Afghanistan. And then out of nowhere, the president makes his decision. It was irresponsible,” she whined on MSNBC.

Did any of the troops tell her to cut and run while leaving thousands of Americans behind?

Every promise that Kamala made, that the evacuations of Americans would be the “highest priority”, that she would bring American soldiers home “responsibly”, that she would “ensure that the country is on a path to stability, that we protect the gains that have been made for Afghan women and others, and that it never again becomes a safe haven for terrorists” were broken.

Even as the Taliban were forcing young girls to marry their terrorists, Kamala was telling reporters in Vietnam not to worry because she had spent her “entire career on the protection of women and children.”

Considering she had actually spent her career covering for the likes of Willie Brown, Bob “Filthy” Filner who got the Jeffrey Epstein special from her office, along with “one of her closest professional confidantes” who was accused of sexually harassing his assistant, not to mention Joe Biden, that’s almost as implausible as her claim that Afghanistan was her highest priority even while being named godmother to an orchid in Singapore.

When the Biden-Harris administration abandoned Americans in Afghanistan, the stranded included 8 San Diego families and 21 local students. A local school district went to work to help them. Kamala Harris ignored her former constituents as she had all the others trapped there.

In September, after Biden fled and left Americans behind, and Kamala claimed that she could be trusted because she had built her “entire career on the protection of women and children”,  a school liaison warned that, “we still have thousands of families, invisible families, who are still stuck in Afghanistan, who are U.S. passport holders, green card holders, SIV holders.”

The one politician working on the issue was a Republican congressman who declared, “The Biden administration left them behind and we didn’t rest until they were on their way home.”

A father who made it out with 5 kids thanked the Marines. He made no mention of Kamala.

Kamala Harris had spent her career betraying the people she claimed to be helping. Afghanistan is just one more chapter in her disgraceful biography. It deserves to be the last.

Biden claimed that Kamala Harris is “the last voice in the room and never fails to speak the truth.” What “truth” did Kamala speak when Biden made a series of disastrous decisions that cost the lives of American military personnel and the freedom of American civilians?

When Biden allowed the Taliban to take Kabul and screen those Americans and Afghans who were allowed to reach the airport through their checkpoints, what did Kamala have to offer?

When the Haqqani Network, allies of Al Qaeda, controlled Kabul, the checkpoints, and access to the airport for fleeing Americans, did Kamala utter a single word of protest to Joe Biden?

She was “comfortable” with it. And she still is.

Biden claimed that this would be the Biden-Harris administration. Kamala would be his partner in all things, handling calls with foreign leaders, leading diplomatic missions, and tackling crises.

As his partner, she deserves an equal share of the responsibility and the accountability.

“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution states.

Kamala Harris violated the trust and duty of her office by engaging in behavior whose consequences were foreseeable to a former member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the second highest elected official in the country with access to classified intelligence. The collapse of the Afghan government, the Taliban takeover of the country, and the fall of Kabul were not unexpected developments, but ones that plenty of people, the vast majority of whom had no access to intelligence briefings, predicted based on past and current events.

Kamala Harris attacked President Trump’s Afghanistan plan as irresponsible and claimed that she had a better plan. The entire world has seen the Biden-Harris withdrawal plan in action.

And is horrified by it.

America’s enemies are gloating and our allies are fearfully backing away. China is threatening Taiwan, Iran is accelerating its nuclear program, and Americans are being taken hostage in Haiti and Venezuela. America is in danger and the risk of war is growing because of Kamala.

A military setback is not itself an impeachable offense, but knowingly abandoning Americans and advanced military equipment to the Taliban are. When the Biden-Harris administration chose to put a military pullout ahead of a civilian one for political reasons, they turned a military retreat into the nation’s worst hostage crisis, destroyed our credibility, and disgraced our nation.

“There is going to be plenty of time to analyze what has happened and what has taken place in the context of the withdrawal from Afghanistan,” Kamala told reporters in Singapore.

The time is long since past. And the best way to begin is with an impeachment inquiry.

The Biden-Harris administration has made it clear that it will not cooperate with an ordinary investigation. The media, which was briefly critical when its reporters were under fire, has gone back to carrying the corrupt administration’s water. Impeachment hearings will remind the public of what happened and an inquiry will help make it clear who in the administration knew what.

And when they knew it.

Dead American military personnel and American civilians trapped behind enemy lines deserve the truth. And they deserve an accountability that begins with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Impeachment won’t bring back the dead, but it will ensure that Kamala and her boss don’t get any more Americans killed.

Kamala Harris: Biden will restore aid to ‘Palestinians’, reopen East Jerusalem consulate and PLO office in D.C.

Returning to the old arrangement: pressuring our only reliable ally in the Middle East, while coddling and enabling those who would conquer and subjugate us.

“Exclusive: Q&A with Kamala Harris ahead of election,” Arab American News, October 28, 2020:

DEARBORN — Democratic vice presidential nominee and California Senator Kamala Harris visited Metro Detroit last Sunday, making a notable, unannounced stop in Dearborn to grab dinner at the Khalaf Grill. The visit by Joe Biden’s running mate was just one of several visits by both prominent Democratic and Republican candidates in the last few weeks ahead of the critical upcoming general election….

Many Arab voters in Dearborn and Hamtramck hold foreign policy issues important, particularly the Israel and Palestine conflict, Syria, the war on Yemen and others. What can a Biden presidency mean for lasting peace and demands for human rights in the Mid East region? Could we see an end to continued U.S. military engagements in the region?

Joe and I are committed to helping the people of the Arab world meet the challenges they face. The United States cannot dictate the outcomes in other countries, but we do have a responsibility to advance human rights and democratic principles on behalf of all people. We have an obligation to promote universal values and work toward a more peaceful and secure world.

Joe and I also believe in the worth and value of every Palestinian and every Israeli and we will work to ensure that Palestinians and Israelis enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity and democracy. We are committed to a two-state solution, and we will oppose any unilateral steps that undermine that goal. We will also oppose annexation and settlement expansion. And we will take immediate steps to restore economic and humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people, address the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza, reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem and work to reopen the PLO mission in Washington.

In Syria, Joe and I will once again stand with civil society and pro-democracy partners in Syria, and help advance a political settlement where the Syrian people have a voice. We will work to protect the most vulnerable Syrians and lead the global coalition to defeat ISIS. And instead of standing by as the government of Saudi Arabia pursues disastrous, dangerous policies, including the ongoing war in Yemen, we will reassess the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia and end support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen….

VIDEO: KAMALA TARGETING CATHOLICS — A long history of anti-Catholic bigotry

Kamala Harris: “to do the best work we can to give these victims dignity and give them a voice.”

As prosecutor in California, Kamala Harris tried to sell herself as tough on sex abuse — but victims of Catholic clergy tell a different tale.

Joey Piscitelli: “Everything just went down the tubes.”

Catholic Joey Piscitelli, a sex abuse survivor, was stonewalled at every turn when he asked Harris to release clergy sex abuse files in San Francisco. He and other victims accused her of covering up child sex abuse by pedophile priests after she received donations from high-level staff in the archdiocese of San Francisco, including lawyers involved in priest sex abuse cases who gave thousands of dollars to Kamala’s campaign.

Joey Piscitelli: “I would like her to produce one clergy abuser or one bishop that she’s even tried to prosecute.”

In fact, Harris was the only D.A. in the nation’s top 50 major cities to fail to prosecute even a single case of priest sex abuse.

While letting sexual predators slide, she’s zealous in going after Catholic pro-lifers.

David Daleiden: “Top Planned Parenthood executives met with Kamala Harris in March of 2016 specifically requesting that she use the law enforcement powers of her office to seize dozens of hours of unreleased undercover footage.”

Pro-life Catholic David Daleiden was first to expose Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in aborted babies’ body parts. While attorneys general across the country launched investigations into the abortion giant’s criminal conduct, Harris indulged Planned Parenthood — one of her wealthiest backers — by launching a political prosecution not against Planned Parenthood, but against the journalist and whistleblower.

David Daleiden: “It’s using the law enforcement powers of Kamala Harris’ office to punish dissenting thought.”

Harris has also said she wants to go after the Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns who fought a successful legal battle against Obama’s contraception mandate.

While the Sisters won their case in the Supreme Court, Harris has vowed to relitigate the case if given the chance.

She also took steps in California to counteract the Sisters’ victory, sponsoring the Do No Harm Act, which would strip Catholic employers of the right to deny coverage for contraception as well as force them to hire same-sex employees.

But it was her naked religious discrimination against a judge that caused Catholic politician Newt Gingrich to say of her “[She] is the most openly anti-Catholic bigot to be on a national ticket in modern times.”

In 2018 she sent a written question to federal judicial nominee Brian Buescher asking about his membership in the Knights of Columbus, calling it an “all-male society” that rejects abortion.

Kamala Harris: “Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?”

The question was met with immediate backlash, exposing her bias that one can’t believe in core Catholic teaching and work for the government.

Sen. Ben Sasse: “This is the same kind of garbage that was thrown at John F. Kennedy 60 years ago when he was campaigning for the presidency.”

Fr. Gerald Murray: “It’s not fair to say if you are a member of a Catholic organization, you are an extremist, because we don’t have religious tests in the United States.”

Harris also abused her power as California A.G. by obstructing the sale of Catholic hospitals in exchange for$25 million in political contributions from a union.

Six Daughters-of-Charity-run hospitals were being sold to Prime Healthcare, but as a favor to the Service Employees International Union, she intervened, insisting that the hospitals be unionized as part of the sale.

The burdensome restrictions led to Prime backing out — and all six struggling Catholic hospitals being shut down.

Prime sued Harris in 2017, exposing Harris’ backroom deal with the union, accusing her of unconstitutional abuse of office. Harris skated, the court granting her qualified immunity as a public officer.

Kamala Harris: “We have a chance to change the course of history.”

If trends continue, Harris may soon be in the White House. With her long track record of corruption and cronyism, there’s no reason to think she won’t use her heightened powers of office to crush Catholics under her heel.

VIDEO Exposé: Kamala Harris’ Support of Selling Baby Parts by Planned Parenthood

This is a 5:00 minute video I recommend all should watch Kamala Harris and her abuse of power as California District Attorney defending illegal activities of Planned Parenthood!

I know I’m preaching to the choir but here are the Conclusions:

  1. Harris used her office as CA DA to defend PP against fetal trafficking of body parts.
  2. She is a huge threat to our 1st Amendment rights and civil liberties if she becomes V.P. and inevitably President if Biden wins & turns totally senile.
  3. If we don’t work hard enough to re-elect POTUS Trump, Harris will use her POWER to abuse and punish anyone with different views other than her own radical Marxist views.

Joe Biden And Kamala Harris Make Freudian Slips, Accidentally Referring To A ‘Harris Administration’

Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris spoke of a “Harris administration,” while discussing economic plans during a virtual roundtable Saturday.

By Ecita Duffy, the Federalist, September 15, 2020:

“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” she said before correcting what many are calling a “Freudian slip.”

With worries about Biden’s mental agility, many people wonder if a potential Biden administration would really be Biden’s. The Federalist Staff Writer, Tristan Justice, theorized that Biden will be “a vehicle for the left’s cultural revolution,” if he becomes president.

Angela Davis, a prominent communist, anti-Semite and former Black Panther, stated Biden could be “effectively pressured,” into promoting the agenda of the radical left in pursuit of a complete societal transformation overthrowing existing norms into a new world order.

As Justice notes, “Biden has already showcased a willingness to conform to the woke revolution,” through his agenda which is  “the most radical progressive platform of any modern Democratic candidate in recent history.”

On par with Biden’s radical agenda, Harris has proven to be a solid member of the far left. As Federalist Managing Editor Joshua Lawson writes, Harris is far from a moderate, as the corporate media likes to portray her. Harris also has the most progressive voting record in the Senate.

“Her positions form an agenda nearly entirely in lock-step with the radical leftist ideology that has taken over the Democratic Party,” Lawson writes.

Antifa/BLM Rioters Now Screaming ‘Death to America’

My latest in PJ Media, written before they did it again in New York City:

Well, at least now we know where everyone stands. Journalist Andy Ngo reported that last Wednesday night, “around 700 black bloc militants and their supporters rampaged through Oakland, Cal. They chanted ‘death to America’ while starting fires and smashing cars and buildings.” The week before that, according to Townhall’s Julio Rosas, “An American flag was just burned outside the Kenosha County Courthouse. One woman screams, ‘Death to America!’ and kicks the fence.”

Understandably, this has delighted some Iranians. Iranian Ayatollah Lotfollah Dezhkam, Supreme Leader Khamenei’s representative in Iran’s Fars province, stated in a Friday sermon: “The shout of the Iranian nation [is] being heard from the mouths of the Americans themselves: Death to America!”

Dezhkam gloated over what he believed were signs of the imminent demise of the United States: “The entire world has seen with its very eyes that today, America cannot be the main decision-maker when it comes to strategic matters in the world. We are unequivocally informing the American administration, Republicans and Democrats alike: If you’ve shut your ears with cotton balls, remove them [so you can hear]. The sound of America being shattered and of its collapse, is being heard all over the world. The shout of the Iranian nation, which has been leading the fight against America for 40 years, is being heard from mouths of the Americans themselves: Death to America!”…

If we are going to restore some semblance of peace and sanity to the republic, we must make a thorough housecleaning of the educational system from top to bottom, so that students learn what is great about America, not just about what is evil or what the Left represents as being evil.

It won’t be easy. Rating America’s Presidents: An America-First Look at Who Is Best, Who Is Overrated, and Who Was An Absolute Disaster is one small attempt to begin to do this, to restore historical study to a sane, accurate, patriotic basis. If we do not now study and learn what once made America great, we will have no opportunity to make it great again.

There is much more. Read the rest here.

Study: America Hit By Roughly 550 Violent Demonstrations In Three Months


Data gathered in a Thursday study suggested that the U.S. experienced nearly 550 violent demonstrations since May 26, the day after the death of George Floyd.

The vast majority of U.S. states have experienced riots in the past three months with Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Mississippi, West Virginia, Hawaii and Alaska being the only ones unscathed by violence, according to data gathered by The Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED).

There were a total of 7,750 Black Lives Matter-linked demonstrations in the U.S. in 2,440 locations across all 50 states, according to ACLED’s data.

Ninety-three percent of these demonstrations were peaceful, but that indicated that approximately 543 events were violent, according to ACLED’s statistics.

Violent demonstrations have largely been contained to 220 locations with Portland being the hardest hit location, the data show.

There have been 38 incidents where riots damaged or brought down historical statues. Law enforcement deployed non-lethal munitions in 54% of the demonstrations where they were present, ACLED reported. A total of 5% of BLM protests have been met with force from officers, data showed.

ACLED also claimed that 50 incidents across the country in the past three months have featured armed individuals, and BLM protests have been recorded in South America, Africa, Asia and several violent demonstrations have been reported in Europe.

VIDEO: ‘Could Have Condemned It’! Lisa Boothe Says Biden And Harris Didn’t Care About Violence Until It Became A Political Liability

Fox News contributor Lisa Marie Boothe said Wednesday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden did not care about escalating violence across America until it became a political liability.

Boothe made her claim during the opening segment of “Outnumbered” in response to fellow contributor Marie Harf, who argued that President Donald Trump was the one stoking the flames of racial division. 

WATCH:

Harf said that Trump had been dividing Americans “for weeks now”  with his rhetoric, adding that Biden stood out in stark contrast to that.

Boothe was quick to reply, saying, “We know that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don’t care about the violent riots because they didn’t mention it the week of the DNC convention. They could have condemned it.”

Boothe went on to mention by name several people who had lost their lives in the dangerous riots — including retired St. Louis police Captain David Dorn, whose widow Ann Dorn was asked to speak at last week’s Republican National Convention — noting that Biden and vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris had not made any mention of them either “until it became a political liability for their campaign.”

Turning to the situation in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Boothe claimed that Biden’s response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake had been divisive because of what it omitted.

Saying that the bullets that pierced Blake’s body had “pierced the nation,” Biden called the shooting another example of a black American being the “victim of excessive force.”

Boothe concluded by saying that Biden had attributed the shooting to race — without evidence — and had failed to address the information released by the Kenosha Police Association indicating that Blake had been armed at the time, had resisted arrest and was the subject of a felony warrant for sexual assault.

“There is a compelling other side of it that we don’t hear from Joe Biden and don’t hear from people like Tony Evers,” Boothe said. “They are the ones that are stoking the fire and stoking divisions in the country. They should be condemned for doing that.”

Here Are Three People Accused Of Violent Crimes Bailed Out Of Jail By Fund Kamala Harris Supported

  • The Minnesota Freedom Fund, which 2020 vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris promoted, bailed out several suspects charged with violent felonies, murder, and sex crimes.
  • At least 13 of Biden’s campaign members also posted on social media that they had donated to the MFF.
  • Court records investigated by Fox9 showed that MFF bailed out Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted sex offender, Jaleel Stallings, a suspect who allegedly shot at police, and Darnika Floyd, a woman who has been accused of killing her friend.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund, which 2020 vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris supported and called on her followers to support, bailed out a number of persons charged with violent felonies, including murder and sex crimes.

Harris called on her millions of followers on Facebook and Twitter in the beginning of June to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) as protests and riots were sparked across the country following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes.

“If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” she said in her June 1 tweet and in a similar Facebook post.

At least 13 of Biden’s campaign members also posted on social media that they had donated to the MFF, Reuters reported May 30.

The MFF received $35 million in donations intended to bail out those imprisoned for riot related charges, Fox9 reported. The publication noted that before Floyd’s death, according to numbers provided by MFF, the foundation bailed out 563 individuals with an average bail of $342.

Since Floyd’s death MFF has bailed out 184 people with an average bail of $13,195, Fox9 reported, noting that the foundation is also assisting 400 individuals with court fines, lost wages and legal fees.

“We initially got some raised eyebrows especially when we ramped up our activity from $1,000 a day to now $100,000 a day, raised eyebrows from our bankers,” Greg Lewin, the interim executive director of the fund, told Fox9.

Court records investigated by Fox9 showed that MFF bailed out Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted sex offender, Jaleel Stallings, a suspect who allegedly shot at police, and Darnika Floyd, a woman who has been accused of killing her friend.

Christopher Boswell, Convicted Rapist

MFF paid $35,000 in cash to bail out Boswell, who is a twice-convicted rapist, Fox9 reported. Boswell also is currently charged with sexual assault, assault and kidnapping in two separate cases, the publication noted.

Jaleel Stallings, Allegedly Shot At Police

MFF paid $75,000 to bail out Stallings, who shot at a SWAT Team during May riots with a modified pistol, Fox9 reported. He was charged with attempted murder, according to the publication.

Darnika Floyd, Charged With Stabbing Friend To Death

The foundation paid $100,000 in cash to secure the release of Floyd, who has been charged with second degree murder for stabbing her friend to death, according to Fox9.

“The last time we were down there, the clerk said, ‘we hate it when you bail out these sex offenders, that is what they said’,” MFF’s interim executive director told Fox9, noting that MFF focuses on the system, not the crime.

“I often don’t even look at a charge when I bail someone out,” he said.  “I will see it after I pay the bill because it is not the point. The point is the system we are fighting.”

The Biden campaign has not responded to many requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation regarding Harris’s support for the MFF. The MFF did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Harris was not the only one to support bailing out people arrested during the unrest. Celebrities such as Chrissy Teigan, Steve Carell, Seth Rogan, and Drake all publicly pledged to donate large sums of money to the bail fund. Many of these celebrities specified that they were donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

Biden’s Polling Lead Has Collapsed


Joe Biden is collapsing. And it’s going to get worse for Biden in the coming weeks. Trump is riding high on an incredibly strong convention, an economy that is roaring back, and an energized voting base. In addition, Joe Biden will no longer be able to run his “prevent defense” campaign. Now that the race is essentially tied, Joe Biden is going to have to leave his basement and campaign outside. He is going to have to step onto the debate stage with President Trump, were his cognitive impairment will be further exposed. And don’t forget about the Durham Report that will likely be released to the public sometime after Labour Day. We have a long way to go, but it’s looking good for Team Trump.

Biden’s Polling Lead Has Collapsed

Just a month and a half ago, Rasmussen Reports had Joe Biden 10-points ahead of President Donald Trump in the polls. Now he’s only ahead by one point, within the margin of error.

Even if Biden’s now-slim lead in the polls were to remain frozen as of today, Trump would still have a clear path to an electoral college victory, as Hillary Clinton lead Trump in the popular vote by just over two points in the 2016 election.

While it is impossible to know the exact reason (or reasons) for Biden’s polling collapse, it comes as the economy continues to rebound from the coronavirus, riots continue to ravage liberal run cities longer than anyone expected (to no condemnation from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris), and a Democrat National Convention widely viewed to be a snoozefest was held.

It’s hard to imagine how anyone could’ve had their mind changed by the extended Zoom meeting that was the DNC, but the RNC is changing hearts and minds – or at least some.

Of note, Rasmussen was among the closest mainstream pollster in approximating the popular vote in the 2016 election. Rasmussen had Hillary Clinton up 1.7 points over Trump on election day 2016, while she ended up winning the popular vote by 2.1 points above him (48.2% vs. 46.1%). The Real Clear Politics average of polls had Hillary up for six points. Unlike the other polls, Rasmussen correctly saw Trump had a path to victory in the electoral college.

VIDEO: Pro-Trump Mother Speaks Out After Women Rip Up Signs, Steal MAGA Hat From Son

WATCH:

Abbey Wigton and Taylor Cisinski, two individuals who were say they were attacked by Joe Biden supporters, spoke with the Daily Caller’s Samantha Renck about the incident, if they plan to press charges and more.

“This altercation was completely unprovoked. My son and I were standing outside of a restaurant,” Wigton said, whose son Riley is 7 years old. “We weren’t even paying attention to the women until they walked out of the doors and immediately started antagonizing my son.”

Abbey alleged that the two women “started saying things like ‘you should be ashamed for having a mother like yours. She’s a Trump supporter. You should just be ashamed of yourself.’”

“As soon as I hit record, that’s when they ripped the sign away so it was almost instantly.”

Conservatives like Donald Trump, Jr. posted that the two women allegedly attacking Wigton, her son and Cisinski were Joe Biden supporters. According to an original statement by Wigton, which has since been deleted, she said, “The Joe Biden supporters laid hands on my child and ripped his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat from his head while cursing at him and pushing him over.”

When asked how she knew they were Biden supporters, Wigton said, “I didn’t necessarily know they were Joe Biden supporters. I just kind of assumed since they were so vehemently against me with the red hat on backward. They couldn’t even see what the lettering was on my hat. They just saw the red hat.”

Cisinski, who was also allegedly attacked, said he believes the incident was premeditated.

“How this whole situation started is, we were all sign-waving on a sidewalk,” he said, “peacefully protesting Joe Biden’s nomination speech. This group of people drove by in a car where they started to yell profanities and cussing at us.”

According to Cisinski, Riley was crying so “he picked him up and brought him away from” the situation, but “the video does not show that.”

Wignot and Cisinski also discussed whether they will press charges, how Riley is doing and more.

Kalamity Kamala a Calamity for America

Calamity Jane was a frontier heroine in the mid-19th century who during an uprising in 1872, saved a Captain Egan from certain death, whereupon he told her: “I name you Calamity Jane, the heroine of the plains.”

This is in stark contrast to Kalamity Kamala of 21st century America, who would accelerate the downfall of our Democratic Republic in the unlikely event of a Biden-Kalamity win on November 3rd.

Why? Because Biden and Kalamity are promising to resurrect the failed policies of the Obama years, and inflict even more damage on America the Beautiful.

According to author and television host Mark Levin, although the media are rushing to portray California’s junior senator as a moderate, nothing could be further from the truth.

She is the “most extremist radical politician ever to run for high office” in the U.S.A., Levin states, even “farther left than 97% of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate,” even “left of avowed Marxist Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders.”

Levin and his guest attorney Mark Pulliam provided several examples. Kalamity Kamala, they said:

  • Rejects a physical wall on the Southern border.
  • Compared ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service) to the Ku Klux Klan.
  • Believes in government-run health care for illegal aliens.
  • Believes in the elimination of private health care.
  • Believes in the Green New Deal which would bankrupt our country.
  • Wants to repeal the president’s tax cuts for the middle class.
  • Wants to massively increase taxes on all Americans.

When it comes to support for Jewish issues in America as well as support for Israel, the estimable Daniel Greenfield in his powerful article, The Democrat Party is Getting Rid of Jews, has a warning:

“Obama and Harris both signed off on Iran’s nuclear program and the flow of money to terrorists.” In addition, “While Harris has been depicted as a moderate, her chief of staff, Karine Jean-Pierre, was the national spokeswoman and senior adviser for MoveOn, the radical group [with] a long history of trafficking in anti-Semitism and attacking the Jewish State.”

And, Greenfield reminds us, Kalamity Kamala is a full-throated supporter of the virulently anti-Semitic members of the so-called “Squad”––Cong. Ihlan Omar (D-MN), Cong. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Cong. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Cong. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and all the others who avidly support both the Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) movement to destroy Israel economically and to deny foreign aid to America’s staunchest ally in the Middle East.

In a chilling but all-too-credible warning, Greenfield says that “Jewish Democrats who imagine that Israel is the problem are about to learn they’re the problem.”

CENSORSHIP TO THE RESCUE

Clearly, the Democrat Party poohbahs recognize the liability Kalamity Kamala poses to a November victory and so, according to reporter Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon, an active campaign involving Democrat Party operatives like Obama handler Valerie Jarrett, Regressive activists, and all of the predictable media whores are declaring that any criticism of her be off limits.

The long list of words the media is forbidden to use include, among others: “ambitious,” “angry,” “unlikeable,” and “unqualified.” Don’t report on the “heritage” of non-white candidates is another directive, and don’t publish unflattering images.

And to anyone who does these sinful things, the self-appointed guardians of the Biden-Kalamity Censorship Committee are advised to use the magic formula: Cry “racist”––and then throw in “sexist”!

All of us can see the pitiful cognitive decline of Mr. Biden. But wasn’t Kamala chosen to cover for him, to be his pit bull, to prove to people she was capable of taking her seat in the Oval Office––unfortunately when and not if Biden’s rapid decline continues?

Now this committee is telling us that the entire Biden-Kalamity ticket is so vulnerable, indeed fragile, that it cannot withstand legitimate criticism, probing policy and personal questions, and what most of the country continues to cherish as a bedrock American value: Free Speech!

These are today’s Democrats––camouflage the ailing and failing and prettify the ambitious, angry, unlikeable and unqualified––or else!

Yet, laughably, Democrats continue to entertain the conceit that they are tolerant.

A THANK YOU IS IN ORDER

Actually, the Biden-Kalamity Censorship Committee has precedent. In 2007, a leftwing journalist named Ezra Klein formed a group called JournOlist which consisted of 400 equally leftist journalists, ostensibly to discuss politics but in fact to insult, degrade, vilify, marginalize and generally try to destroy anyone who disagreed with their largely radical points of view.

The “O” stood for the man then ascending in the political world who two years later would find himself at the pinnacle of power in the White House. One of JournOlist’s first tasks was to savage anyone who questioned Mr. Obama’s viciously anti-American and anti-Semitic pastor of 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Their magic formula was to call anyone who said or wrote anything negative about Obama a “racist.”

JournOlist members continued to hurl “racist” accusations at Obama’s critics for eight long years. What Americans learned from those overwhelmingly false charges was that weak and insecure people cave when people called them names but strong and confident people see the accusations for what they are––transparent attempts to intimidate them into silence.

Multimillions of Americans, including me, have to thank the JournOlist “strategy” because it succeeded in bringing to America the quintessentially strong and confident leader––President Donald J. Trump––who in less than four years has truly transformed our country into a flourishing Democratic Republic.

Why is that relevant today? Because President Trump recognizes that in every law, policy, philosophy, deal and strategy that Obama employed, VP Biden was right by his side, supporting every action and touting it enthusiastically on his globetrotting travels. And worse, with far-far left Kalamity Kamala now by his side, Biden’s plan to resurrect Obama’s policies would be even more extreme.

Keep that in mind when you read this brief review of what Barack Obama inflicted on our country and what President Trump fixed:

  • Obama-Biden eviscerated our military and President Trump reconstituted it to become the strongest military in the world.
  • Obama-Biden had a failed economy and chronically unemployed citizens and President Trump boosted employment to the highest levels in American history––including Black employment, Hispanic employment, women’s employment, and youth employment.
  • Obama-Biden displayed visceral antagonism to our most reliable Mideast ally and President Trump told the entire world that America stands with Israel. He recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moved the American embassy there; recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and now forged the first deal between Israel and an Arab state in 26 years––that of the now-promising partnership between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, with more Arab states coming on board in the near future.
  • Obama-Biden’s genocidal-to-Israel deal with Iran allowed the terrorist state to develop nuclear weapons and President Trump cancelled it, although he couldn’t recoup the $150-billion in cold hard cash that Obama & Co. shipped in pallets to Iran, all while the Mullahs were promising––as they are to this very day––to wipe Israel off the map.
  • Obama-Biden continued America’s decades-long dependence on foreign oil and President Trump made America completely energy independent.

BUT, BUT, BUT….

But Kalamity Kamala is only a Vice Presidential candidate, you may say. It’s the President who formulates the policies, determines the direction of our nation, and makes the decisions. Why such a brouhaha about her?

It is not only because candidate Biden’s handlers have succeeded in moving the once-vital politician to the far left, but because the far-far left is where Kalamity Kamala lives.

In a lacerating profile of Kalamity Kamala, journalist Ixtu Diaz says that after reading thousands of pages about her, she is a woman “who boasts of instilling fear in her opponents, who despises individual freedom, and who rages at half the planet for being men or for not thinking like her.”

“But let’s not fool ourselves,” Diaz continues, “Kamala won’t be Biden’s VP. Biden will be Kamala’s president only if she gets up in a good enough mood to give him permission. She has two big things going for her: that she is a woman and that she is black––a truly extraordinary feat that has never been accomplished by anyone before.

“She certainly deserves an award, although perhaps the vice presidency of a government without a president is excessive.”

Now that would be a true calamity!

‘I Can’t Wait’: Mike Pence Tells Sean Hannity He’s Ready To Debate Kamala Harris [Video]

Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he “can’t wait” to debate presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

“I think she is a skilled debater, but I can’t wait to get to Salt Lake City and be on the stage. Whether to compare Joe Biden’s nearly 50 years in public life, the agenda of the radical left, the agenda that she’s embraced throughout her political career with the results of this president and this administration,” Pence said on Wednesday’s edition of “Hannity.”

At their first joint appearance as running mates in Wilmington, Delaware, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Harris wasted no time criticizing the Trump administration for a “lack of leadership.”

“The case against Donald Trump and Mike Pence is open and shut,” Harris said at the event “…we don’t have to accept the failed government of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.”

“In Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are Democratic Party and the radical left, you have people talking about cutting funding to law enforcement, a party that is advocating defunding law enforcement. The choice could not be clearer,” Pence added.

In a July interview with activist Ady Barkan for NowThis News, Biden said he does not support defunding the police but would back redirecting some funds toward more community-based initiatives, according to the Associated Press.

Pence also touted the Trump administration’s record for involvement with the black community.

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris come from a party that’s been talking about helping African Americans for decades. This is a president who, because of the policies we advanced, we actually saw the lowest unemployment ever recorded for African Americans. We saw the creation of thousands of opportunity zones creating billions of dollars of investment in our inner cities. This is a president who doubled the school choice program here in our nation’s capital, has been fighting for education opportunities for every American, especially [in] our minority communities,” Pence said.

The debate is scheduled for Oct. 7 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Here’s Why Sen. Kamala Harris Held Up An Attempt To Rescue A Struggling Catholic Hospital

  • A California judge granted Sen. Kamala Harris qualified immunity in 2017 after a healthcare company sued her for allegedly holding up its acquisition of a financially struggling hospital network. Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine shielding public officials from liability if they violate citizens’ rights. 
  • The lawsuit came years before Harris introduced a resolution in June alongside other Senate Democrats to eliminate the legal protection from law enforcement officers. 
  • Former Vice-President Joe Biden selected Harris as his running mate as he prepares for a bruising general election fight with President Donald Trump. 

A judge once gave Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris qualified immunity after a healthcare company sued the former California attorney general for allegedly blocking the company’s attempt to purchase a financially struggling Catholic hospital.

Prime Healthcare Services sued Harris for supposedly imposing strict conditions on the sale of the Daughters of Charity Health System in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions.

Prime scuttled the deal and claimed in the 2015 lawsuit that executives at Daughters told the company that Harris would block the sale if Prime did not agree to unionize Daughter’s network of six hospitals. The lawsuit alleges Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW) in return promised to support Harris with $25 million in contributions.

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board reported on the lawsuit in a post Wednesday, noting also that Judge Gonzalo Curiel in San Diego rejected Prime’s claim in 2017 and gave her qualified immunity.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden selected Harris as his running mate Tuesday as he prepares for what will likely be an intense general election.

Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine that shields public officials from liability for violating citizen’s constitutional liberties. Harris, a former California prosecutor, introduced a Senate resolution in June alongside Sens. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey to eliminate qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.

Their bill came amid protests following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in May after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes, video of the incident shows.

Harris “abused her constitutional authority by placing her need for political financial support over the health-care needs of the people,” Troy Schell, general counsel for Prime, said in a 2015 statement. Prime alleged that Harris effectively “forced the company to withdraw its offer for the DCHS hospitals, jeopardizing health care in these underserved communities.”

Daughter’s board of directors selected Prime to take over the hospitals in 2014, HealthCare Finance reported in 2015. Prime’s $843 million offer far exceeded all other proposals and allowed Daughters Charity’s healthcare mission to continue. The deal also would have protected the unfunded pensions of the hospital network’s then-17,000 staff, according to HealthCare’s report.

Harris imposed several “poison pills” to the deal, The WSJ Editorial Board noted in the Wednesday report. These included a condition forcing Prime to continue hospital operations unchanged for 10 years — the “requirement that would have made it impossible to save the hospitals,” according to Prime’s lawsuit.

Harris, who at the time was responsible for approving such acquisitions, also required Prime to maintain 24-hour nursing at the hospital, as well as surgery, anesthesia, laboratory, radiology and pharmacies for five years. In addition, she mandated that hospitals offer 12 to 18 services such as orthopedics for 10 years. “These conditions were unprecedented,” The WSJ Editorial Board noted.

Integrity Healthcare took over the hospitals in July 2015 before going bankrupt in 2018 due in part to the expense of managing the network, the Los Angeles Times reported in 2018. Verity Health, which is managed by Integrity, had more than $1 billion of debt from bonds and unfunded pension liabilities as a result of taking on Daughters.

Santa Clara County, California bought two of the six hospitals in 2019, according to Mercury News. Prime Healthcare purchased another hospital in April, with California hospital operator AHMC Healthcare buying the remaining two in March, media reports show. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Harris’s successor, approved both the AHMC and Prime deals in July.

Harris has not responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment about the lawsuit and Prime’s claims.
