No, Kamala Harris Isn’t A ‘Moderate’

No, Kamala Harris Isn’t A ‘Moderate’ — She’s A Radical Threat To America

 
The media are spinning Kamala Harris as a 'centrist' and a 'moderate.' In reality, she's a leftist who could be one heartbeat away from the Oval Office.

 

BY:  Joshua Lawson

 

Once Joe Biden named Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate for the upcoming 2020 election, it didn’t take long for the media to begin its latest attempt to gaslightAmericans.

 

In the Associated Press announcement of Biden’s choice, AP writers Kathleen Ronayne and Will Weissert write approvingly of Harris’s “centrist record” as a contributing factor in the decision. Longtime political analyst and lobbyist Doug Schoen praised Biden’s pick while arguing Harris “could help Biden solidify his position among centrist voters and even moderate Republican voters.”

 

Not to be outdone, The New York Times characterized Harris as a “pragmatic moderate.” In an additional Harris announcement for the Times, Jonathan Martin and Astead W. Herndon refer to Harris and Biden as “two moderates” who share “center-left politics.”

 

Yet an analysis of Harris’s voting record in the U.S. Senate, as well as policies she has proposed, reveal quite a different story. Her positions form an agenda nearly entirely in lock-step with the radical leftist ideology that has taken over the Democratic Party. Indeed, if Biden wins the 2020 race for the White House, Sen. Harris (D-Calif.) will find herself in a unique position to pose a genuine threat to the values that built the United States of America.

 

According to a detailed assessment by Voteview, Harris holds a voting record farther left than 97 percent of Democrats in the 116th Senate, and more liberal than 99 percent of the Senate as a whole. Of current members of the U.S. Senate, Harris ranks more liberal than Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) while placing as the Democrat with the most liberal voting record in the chamber aside from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

 

Harris has stated that illegal immigrants in the United States are not criminals — which defines both logic and traditional definitions of standard English words like “illegal” and “criminal” — and once likened U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to members of the Ku Klux Klan for having the temerity to enforce the law.

 

During a Democratic primary debate, Harris raised her hand in support of a government-run health-care plan that would have taxpayers covering illegal immigrants. In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper in 2019, Harris made it clear that she would be “opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period.”

Harris was a co-sponsor of the utterly insane Green New Deal, a co-sponsor to Sanders’s “Medicare For All” scheme to socialize America’s health-care system, and is on record advocating a repeal of the 2017 Republican tax cuts that helped create the conditions for the booming pre-pandemic American economy.

 

During her failed attempt to win the nomination, Harris promised if she were elected president, she wouldn’t hesitate to sign an executive order banning all “assault weapons” as well as “high-capacity magazines” — both designations left forebodingly undefined. As a district attorney in 2004, she even supported legislation that would require “microstamping” technology for all firearms, a proposal both problematic for its potential infringement on core Second Amendment rights as well as possible government exploitation.

 

In a CNN Town Hall in October, Harris emphatically stated that she is in favor of banning both fracking and offshore drilling. On the whole, Harris’s recently proposed energy policies veer far into the doomsday scenarios peddled by the radical left, accompanied by drastic “solutions.”

 

Her “Climate Plan For the People” advocated converting the entire nation to “100 percent carbon-neutral electricity” by 2030, and sought “all new buses, heavy-duty vehicles, and vehicle fleets will be zero-emission.” Like the Green New Deal she co-sponsored, Harris called for “all new buildings” to be “carbon-neutral.” Unsurprisingly, the estimated cost for these projects was not disclosed on Harris’s campaign website.

 

On abortion, Harris is anything but a moderate. She has gone so far as to propose a new “plan” that would, somehow, force states and localities to seek prior approvaland clearance through the U.S. Department of Justice before placing any limits or “restrictions” on abortions.

 

Harris received a whopping 844 total votes in the entire 2020 Democratic Primary process, and, despite widespread support from powerful Democrats and media outlets alike, she just, well, never caught on. Her selection as Biden’s running-mate, however, gives her a chance to accomplish artificially what she and her backers never got even close to accomplishing organically. Simply put, this is a run-around by leftist Democrats to slink a favored candidate into the White House without having to win the Democratic primary contest let alone a national election at the top of the ticket.

While Biden hasn’t explicitly stated he would not run for a second term if he wins the 2020 presidential election, as David Axelrod notes, the fact that Biden would be 81 by the next election makes it “widely assumed” he would not run again. As such, a Biden victory vaults Harris into a position where Axelrod concedes she would immediately become the “heir apparent” and “putative frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination” in 2024.

 

Given Biden’s age — he would be 78 on Inauguration Day — the odds are far greater than normal that Harris may be called upon to fulfill the primary and solemn duty for which the vice presidency exists. In that case, by her own admission in her own statements and proposals, an America with Kamala Harris sitting behind the Resolute Desk would look quite different in a hurry and could usher in a slew of far-left proposals that would make Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” look like a clam bake.

 

Ultimately, Biden isn’t truly the candidate running to replace President Trump. The largest threat to everything America is, to its founding principles, and everything it represents at its best is no longer Sanders, it’s the Democratic Party’s new vice-presidential nominee.

 

This November, the election will give Americans a chance to reject the creeping extremism of the Democratic Party, which is now ostensibly led by its functional leftist leader Kamala Harris. Americans must see through the attempts of Democrats and the media to spin Harris’s radical leftist voting record into something “centrist” or “moderate,” recognize the threat she poses, and vote accordingly.

 

If enough do so, our nation may dodge a crippling blow. If not, we could be in for a rough decade.

Lets go bt the numbers.

1. Trump never had tax cuts for the middle class. (FACT) The were for the rich and were not pad for so increased the National debt.

2. Not true. Trump just increased taxes on all by spending on the virus.

3. She does support a women's right to control her own body. If we allow  that type of law (abortion) then we could have a law that says Christians can not have children.

4. Not true

5. Trump supports increasing regulations. Wants a regulation allowing him to make all laws.

6. There is no war on the suburbs. Only Congress can declare war.

7. Not true. Trump cuts deals on the SC. Person has to agree never to override a Trump back law.

8. Trump supports that to as the Senate will only be allowed to hear what Trump wants it to, and must always back what Trump wants.

Never pay attention to the Alternate Reality of Trump World where facts and the truth do not matter. 

 

Kamala Harris was the Attorney General of California, where she prosecuted low life criminals. During the Democratic Primary campaign, she was heavily criticized by the radical left wing element of the party, led by Bernie Sanders, for being too tough on criminals. Does that sound like a flaming liberal? I'm LOL.

 

Kamala initially made a mistake with her support for Bernie's Health Plan but quickly realized she was on the wrong track. She then backed off on her original commitment to Medicare for All.

 

Yes, Kamala Harris is a moderate who fits in beautifully with the mainstream candidate, Joe Biden. They are going to bury Comrade Trump and his flunky, Mike Pence, in November.

She may not be a moderate but she has certainly modified her approach to appeal to her constituents.  The mark of a representative of the people. She represents them, not herself.

Does this mean she will change to suit whatever she needs in order to promote herself? To me it does because she has flip-flopped so many times one may think they are at a tennis match when watching her.

Touting Kamala Harris as a moderate is a liberal dose of deception

The New York Times was quick out of the blocks with the Democratic pitch that Kamala Harris is a “pragmatic moderate.” It’s pulling your leg.

 

Joe Biden’s running mate had the most liberal voting record in the Senate last year — surpassing even Bernie Sanders — according to government watchdog GovTrack.

 

Harris advocates late-term abortion, thinks Catholics are not fit to serve on the Supreme Court, has tried to criminalize climate-change denial and the manufacture of guns, wants to give taxpayer-funded health care to illegal immigrants and, as California’s attorney general, wielded power like a callous autocrat.

 

But, if by pragmatic, the Times means this Barack Obama protegé will be whatever you want her to be, it’s correct.

Her record shows her to be a gifted shapeshifter.

 

The San Francisco progressive is prepared to pose as a law-and-order centrist in crucial states where suburban voters are nervous about violent riots.

 

The panderer to the defund-the-police crowd once compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Ku Klux Klan, but was endorsed by police unions when she was California’s top prosecutor.

 

The hedge-fund darling presents herself as a woman of the people.

She’s an Indian-American candidate to one audience, an African-American one to another.

She’s the loyal understudy expected to usurp her benefactor if he wins.

 

She’s an anti-racist, MeToo feminist running alongside a man she has accused of racism and has said she believes is a rapist.

Well lets start with the fact that your source is a far right Rupert M owned paper which is know for not telling the truth.

Now there is some strange things in all you support articles. The ones dated Aug. 12 by BM and MD are labeled OPINION. The ones dated June 9 and Aug by EB are not yet there are all just about the same. Fact is they really are someones opinion and you can not use an opinion article as fact. My opinion is all of the articles are pure nonsense.

you guys and your labeling.......geeze. Who cares how far to the left, or moderate she is she is, what she is is highly qualified, and also unlike Pence, more than qualified to be President if need be some day. You guys are so far to your right, anything to your left is deemed socialist, LOL!

@Tom5678 

How true...I always laugh when trump supporters try to hang a far left liberal tag on anyone who is knowledgeable, articulate, is a leader, and has compassion and empathy for her constituents...that being said, Kamala is going to be more than trump and pence can handle, and they have no clue as how to deal with her...commonly known as fear and panic...name calling won’t get it.

YES  what a  CRISIS  HOW RADICAL ….  HORRORS..... if  women are supporting KAMALA    want different priorities for  the 98% of the people instead of the 2%.  ….( sarcasm)  

 

The average JOE and JANE do not care about the terms "Moderate"  "Progressive ".....they want this VIRUS under control and they are worried about the economy....their living  expenses...jobs.....healthcare.   

 

KAMALA  has different priorities than the republican males who run their party so they'll hate her.. besides being racist.  .TRUMP already called her "nasty" and a "phony" but that's to be expected it's what Hillary  or Pelosi experienced too.      Racism is mainly why some who are not  rich enough to be a republican are loyal to the party.  


 Congressional republicans had a couple meetings on women's healthcare without ONE woman invited to be present.     THAT"S THE REPUBLICAN PARTY --- if you are a WOMAN don't expect them to think of you except as being a breeder and for sex.

Like I said, just look at her voting record.  She is no moderate.  She has voted left of Bernie Sanders.  Pick any issue you like and show me where I am wrong.  Do your own research because most of the MSM will not report it but you need to know what you are voting for.
