NEW YORK — If Kamala Harris is a moderate, Joe Biden is a teenager.
Soon after the former vice president, 77, revealed on Tuesday the woman he hopes will become his vice president, newsroom Leftists rushed to disguise the 55-year-old junior senator from California as a centrist.
The so-called Paper of Record dubbed Harris “a pragmatic moderate.” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos said that Harris “comes from the middle of the road, moderate wing of the Democratic Party.” Nonsense. Harris is a Right-winger! Just ask the Washington Post, which called her “a small-c conservative.”
This, of course, is unwittingly hilarious, when it’s not maddening. These and other media organizations know better. They are busy repackaging the far-Left Harris as a half-Jamaican/half-East Indian version of Senator Lisa Murkowski (R – Alaska), whose office occupies the 50-yard line of the
Redskins generic Washington team. In fact, Kamala Harris is Bernie Sanders with long, black hair.
Actually, that’s a tad unfair to the socialist senator from Vermont. He is merely the second-Leftest member of the World’s Greatest Deliberative body. Who’s No. 1? Kamala Harris!
According to GovTrack’s legislative-vote analysis, Harris is “Ranked most liberal compared to All Senators.” With a score of 0.0, Harris was the 100th most conservative senator. Sanders was No. 99, with a 0.02. So, this “small-c conservative” actually votes to the Left of Bernie Sanders.
GovTrack also considers Harris a rigid partisan. She “Joined bipartisan bills the least often compared to Senate Democrats.”
Other key legislative report cards also find Harris in or near the ideological end zone.
The American Conservative Union scored Harris a dismal 9 percent in 2018. That year, the pro-market National Taxpayers Union graded Harris a D. In contrast, the Americans for Democratic Action gave Harris a perfect, 100-percent-liberal rating in 2018 (before her 2019 presidential run and consequent truancy muddied results.)
Biden, for his part, was stumbling-over-a-cliff Left in 2008, his last year in the Senate. The ACU judged Biden a 0. The NTU ruled him an F. And the ADA rated him an 80.
Based on actual Senate votes, Biden-Harris is the farthest-Left Democrat ticket since George McGovern and Thomas Eagleton in 1972, if not in U.S. history.
Yeas and Nays aside, Harris’ policies catapult her over the port side of the ship of state.
- “On Day One, we’re going to repeal that tax bill,” Harris said, promising to torpedo President Donald J. Trump’s entire Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and sink the finances of American businesses, families, and individuals. Harris also said: “We’ve got to raise the corporate tax rate” from 21 percent all the way back to 35 percent — 10 points higher than in Red China.
- “I am prepared to get rid of the filibuster to pass a Green New Deal,” the $52.6 trillion eco-Leviathan, which she co-sponsored. Ditching the filibuster could jet-propel Biden-Harris’ entire radical agenda through the Senate.
- Harris co-sponsored the Medicare for All Act, Bernie Sanders’ plan to nationalize healthcare and kill the private health coverage of some 180 million Americans.
- “Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked debating Democrats in June 2019. Up went Harris’s hand.
- Harris itches to repeal 8 U.S. Code § 1325 and, thus, decriminalize illegal entry into the USA.
- Harris favors “banning Right to Work laws. That needs to happen.” This would cost 166 million Americans in 27 states their protections against mandatory unionization.
- “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking,” Harris declared on CNN. If she prevailed, Americans would kiss energy independence goodbye. Harris further threatened: “Under my plan, there would also be a carbon fee.”
- How about a compulsory gun-buyback program? “I think it’s a good idea,” Harris said September 6 in New Hampshire. “We have to take those guns off the streets.”
Democrats offer Americans a fragile, fading, solid-Left Joe Biden and, one heartbeat behind him, the even-harder-Left Kamala Harris.
You have been warned.

I wouldn’t be alarmed of any candidate for President or Vice President if this was a “normal election”, but sadly there is nothing normal when it comes to the 2020 election. The nation will be voting for SOCIALISM IN AMERICA. There is no fear of the Socialists letting it be known who they are in our government. SOCIALISM can not work without being able to control the citizens. This means that every US Citizens must relinquish their rights so the Political Correct politicians can control every citizen in America. Under SOCIALISM the Political Elite decides what the citizens need and what they will get. There is no shortage of Political Elite just waiting for the moment when they can take the reigns of government without the US Constitution and it’s Rule of Law holding them back. YES, without the US Constitution and the requirement of the Oath of Office we would have been a SOCIALIST REGIME decades ago. Political Correctness is the narrative of SOCIALISM simply because it allows the Political Correct politicians tell the people is what is good for them and will decide what they will get. That pesky US Constitution is holding SOCIALISM back. Take away this constitution or making this pesky constitution irrelevant is what the Socialists need for complete control of the nation. To remain free citizens depends on the votes of citizens who value their Individual Freedoms protected by our US Constitution. 2020 is not just any election. It is a election that will define the future of this nation. Remain free citizens or become Political Slaves. Fifty years ago SOCIALISM was a threat to our Republic. Now that the Democrat Party gave Socialists a voice in government, now we are venturing into dangerous waters that may wash away our Individual Freedoms forever. Sadly, this is happening in my generation and it is members of my generation that are threatening to end the freedom of future generations. Patriotic Americans fought and died to make FREEDOM possible and protect this FREEDOM. These Patriots knew FREEDOM IS NOT FREE. They knew that to remain free they might pay the ultimate to retain our FREEDOM. These Patriots did not die to be Political Correct, they died for the right to question Political Correctness.
Actually I always thought the first K in KKK was for Kamala.
Well she does come from a family of slave traders, so it’s possible I guess!
Harris is talking like she is the POTUS. Maybe that is the real game here. For plugs to step aside due to obvious reasons, and for Harris to be sworn in. Oh yeah, just one other little detail. You can’t do all of what she proposes unless Congress goes along.
Executive orders .
That’s EXACTLY why mail in voting, vote harvesting and other forms of voter fraud have to be blocked. If Harris gets in there and the demonKKKrats get Congress by fraud, we are all screwed…
If Quid Pro Joe and Phony KayKay are elected it will be by stealing the election. And if that happens there will be blood shed in the streets. Real American patriots cannot let America be stolen by communists on our watch! Not on our watch!
Time to remove social democrats from office to stop socialism in this country.
A few long lengths of rope and some nice sized trees … we can start hanging the Commie Democrats ASAP !
How can Harris even qualify for a VP nomination ? Her Father is Jamaican and Mother is Indian …Was she born in the USA ? We do not need another case of the Lying Kenyan do we ? We still have no proof that he is a Citizen of the USA !
She was born in Oakland, CA. Neither parent was a US Citizen. She is definitely NOT a natural born citizen, which is required to be POTUS, or VPOTUS. RE: ODumbo, he is actually an Indonesian citizen, however, as his mother was a US citizen he could have reclaimed his US citizenship by age 18, but was too lazy to bother. He was on a foreign student Fulbright scholarship at Occidental. What does that tell you?
Moderate?? Ha! She just chose as her Chief of Staff, a Black, gay, female. She’s wasting no time checking all of the “woke” politics boxes straight out the gate.
Do they have a box for slave owner?? After all her “roots” are in the slave business!
Give her the Sarah Palin treatment. Full throttle. See how the left likes it when the shoe is on the other foot.
I don’t like Tulsi Gabbard, but I’d love to throw Tulsi at her and see who blinks first.
Democrats suck! Not elegant but not much more to say at this point. Democrats are our true enemies IMO; Democrat policies are good for no one but the liberal elite, hoping their traditional voter base realizes this.
I don’t know folks, but if Biden and lie your way to the top Harris become the next socialists in charge. I can’t afford to live in the US. I am middle class, and these two are pushing my family out of the middle class and into singing for my supper. There won’t be any jobs. There won’t be any cars, my tent will get more use than it has ever seen.
I didn’t know who this Kamala was until the Bret kavenof hearings for Supreme Court. That is when I found out this woman was Bad News! I remember back in grade school we would have the Duck and Cover drills as often as the Fire Drills.
Cameltoe Harris boinked her way to all her political offices. Just ask Willie Brown. She has zero ethical standards. She will do ANYTHING to get more power.
She fits the democrat mo exactly.
Everyone pretty much knows what Harris is all about. She is not liked by many people. The Democrat voters did not vote for her to be President. If Biden wins, they could get her anyway.
That’s been the plan since day one! bye-dunce is just a stand-in buffoon and I wouldn’t be surprised if they dump him before the convention! Two “rejects” on the same ticket– Hilarious; bye-dunce rejected by obumer in 2016 and hair-brain harris by the dnc in 2020!
Too funny! She is well known so putting her in sheeps clothing is too little and far too late. Plus the radicals in the party will crusify her if she wavers. This is gonna be a big lose for the DNC and the primaries have not even happened in most states or should I say have not be tallied because the left can’t seem to get the process done or is it can’t cheat quickly enough? The general election is gonna be a blood bath with the rabid, venemous radicals in the DNC insane asylum.
Kamala is a centrist, centrist Marxist Socialist and a centrist pathological prevaricator.She is more evil than Pelosi, Ohmar AOC and Tilaib combined. She is a junior Hillary Clinton.
