• Biden’s VP Choice: Radical Leftist Sen. Kamala Harris

    Surge Summary: Joe Biden’s pick of Kamala Harris as his vice-president nominee reveals the character of a potential Biden presidency: She is among the most radically Leftist of Democratic Senators. And considering Biden’s age and apparent condition, it is not hard to imagine her stepping into the presidency sometime during a Biden first term.

    by Gary  Bauer

    Joe Biden has made his choice for a running mate – California Senator Kamala Harris.  Predictably the lamestream media is describing her as a pragmatic moderate in the mainstream of American politics.  That is totally false.

    • Harris is extremely left-wing.  She votes with Bernie Sanders 92% of the time.  The non-partisan site Govtrack ranked Harris as the 4th most liberal senator.  For perspective, Elizabeth Warren was ranked as the 13th most liberal senator.
    • She was one of only nine senators who voted against the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, which funds our military and benefits for our servicemen and women.  She opposed the Defense Authorization Act this year, saying, “I unequivocally agree with the goal of reducing the defense budget.”
    • Harris co-sponsored Bernie Sanders’s socialized healthcare scheme, Medicare For All.
    • She has endorsed the radical Green New Deal.
    • She wants to ban fracking, a technological revolution in domestic energy production.
    • Harris co-sponsored legislation calling for reparations for slavery.
    • Harris strongly sympathizes with the “defund the police” movement, saying we need a “smarter distribution of resources in our country.”  Translation:  Police “absolutely” should have their funding slashed.

    On Life

    Joe Biden used to hedge his support for abortion by talking about his Catholic faith.  Harris is proudly pro-abortion.  Harris has a 100% pro-abortion voting record with Planned Parenthood.  Harris wanted to brag about her extreme pro-abortion record during the Democrat presidential debates.

    As California’s attorney general, Harris began the prosecution/persecution of pro-life activist David Daleiden, who exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts.

    Like Biden, Harris wants to crush the Little Sisters of the Poor because they refuse to support the abortion agenda.  And she viciously attacked a federal court nominee because of his membership in a group that deeply disturbed her.

    What was the group?  The KKK?  No.  The Nazi Party? No.  The Communist Party?  No.  The nominee was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic men’s organization.

    This is the most pro-abortion ticket in history.

    On The Second Amendment

    During the Democrat debates, Harris promised that if elected she would immediately introduce legislation to restrict the Second Amendment.  And if she couldn’t get it passed in Congress, she would issue executive orders to ban firearms.

    This is not like the orders Trump is being criticized for, which involve shuffling around money.  Harris seems to think she has the power to repeal parts of the Constitution!

    On Immigration

    Harris supports decriminalizing illegal entry into the United States.  She compared ICE agents to KKK terrorists, and embraced left-wing demands to “abolish ICE,” saying we should reexamine immigration enforcement by “starting from scratch.”

    She also supports giving free healthcare to illegal aliens.

    Harris & The Black Vote

    Many pundits suggest that the “historic” selection of Kamala Harris as the first black woman on a presidential ticket will help Biden get the black vote.  Well, she had trouble attracting black voters during the primaries.

    Polls consistently showed that Biden got more of the black vote than she did.  In fact, if she is such a “historic” candidate, why did Democrats reject her?  In her home state of California, she peaked in the low 20s and finished at 7% when she dropped out.

    The more people saw Harris, the worse she did.  There’s virtually no evidence that she will attract young minority voters.  In fact, she may repel them.  She made up false stories to justify her hypocrisy on some popular issues with younger voters.

    And while Harris campaigns as a social justice warrior today, even supporting Jussie Smollett, as a prosecutor and California’s attorney general, Harris denied justice to several wrongly convicted individuals.  She even fought against advanced DNA testing to clear a potentially innocent man on death row.

    Bashing Biden

    During the presidential primary, Harris strongly suggested that Joe Biden is a racist.  When multiple women came forward to accuse Biden of sexual harassment and even sexual assault, Harris said, “I believe the women.”

    So, how ambitious is she?  Let’s put it this way:  Harris has been doing everything she could to be the running mate of a man she believes is a racist and a sexual harasser.

    Trump vs. Harris?

    The race may very well become a Trump vs. Harris contest.  A recent Rasmussen poll found that 59% of Americans do not believe Joe Biden will finish his term in office.  So a majority of Americans believe that Biden just picked the person who could well become president sometime in the next four years.

    I don’t think it was an accident that President Trump was out last night immediately defining Harris.  In many ways, she is his main opponent.  While Vice President Pence will have the honor of debating her, I believe President Trump will be talking about Harris as much as he talks about Joe Biden.
