Hilarious: 2020 presidential candidates as “Michael Scott”

Michael Scott is a character from the show “The Office.”

I never watched this show yet this video is pretty spot on.

It’s amazing how a TV show’s past can intersect with today’s reality.

Great job by The Washington Free Beacon!

Kamala Harris says she needed psychotherapy because of President Trump

A year ago, Demonrat senator Kamala Harris (CA), who slept screwed her way  into government, “joked” about killing President Trump.

Now, Harris, who wants to be president of the USA, says she and “a lot of” other Democrats needed and received psychotherapy because of Trump.

Katie Pavlich reports for Townhall that in a speech to the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles last Saturday night, March 30, 2019, Harris whined about needing therapy because of President Trump:

“It [Trump’s presidency] has caused a lot of us to go through individual and group therapy. It has caused a lot of us to feel a bit of despair, and depression, and anxiety, and fear. And I say don’t let the bad guys win.”

Kamala Harris, the delicate snowflake who wants to be your President, has raised $12 million since announcing her candidacy earlier this year.

Senate rejects AOC’s Green New Deal in 57-0 vote

Yesterday, March 26, 2019, the so-called Green New Deal, promoted by Demonrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and 2020 presidential expirant Sen. Kamala “I-slept-my-way-into-politics” Harris (CA), failed to pass a procedural vote in the U.S. Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) put the Deal to a vote to force Demonrats to take a public stand on the measure and so divide the Demon Party’s moderates and progressives. He tweeted:

”I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal’: a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire US economy.”

The final vote was 57 against, and 0 for the plan:

  • Two “red state” Democrats voted no: Sens. Joe Manchin (WVa) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ).
  • 43 Demonrats voted “present”.

Ocasio-Cortez predictably mouthed off, calling the vote a political stunt and a “disgrace”.

California paid $1M in harassment settlements under then-AG Kamala Harris

One million dollars in payment for sexual misconduct and Kamala knew nothing about it? Um, okay. Doesn’t speak much of her great concern for victims of sexual harassment.

From NY Post: The California Department of Justice paid more than $1 million to employees who alleged they faced sexual harassment or workplace retaliation while presidential candidate Kamala Harris was state attorney general, it was reported Friday.

The settlements involved allegations of inappropriate touching or comments as well as other allegations made from 2011 to 2017. They were disclosed this week in response to a state Public Records Act request from the Los Angeles Times.

Harris didn’t know about the cases until the Times brought them to her attention. They were handled by administrators who were expected to follow strict policies against harassment, said Harris’ spokesman, Chris Harris.

However, the Democratic U.S. senator told the Times that she takes responsibility. “As the chief executive of a department of nearly 5,000 employees, the buck stopped with me,” Harris said in a statement. “No one should face harassment or intimidation in the workplace, and victims of sexual misconduct should be listened to, believed and protected.”

Harris has been a prominent supporter of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment in the workplace. She was elected to the Senate in 2016 and said any complaints of harassment in her Senate office are forwarded to her immediately.

“No office is immune to misconduct, and there is much more work to do to ensure all are protected,” she told the Times.

In large government agencies, it wouldn’t be unusual for managers to handle harassment claims instead of the agency head except when high-level administrators are involved, said Mike Genest, who was finance director under former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. “If a director wasn’t told about it, I would not be suspicious that that was an issue,” said Genest, who spent 24 years as a manager in state agencies.

The largest of the reported settlements was $649,500, paid in 2013 to James Rodriguez, who was a justice department special agent, over allegations that he was denied sought-after jobs and faced other retaliation for reporting alleged harassment against him. In the settlement, the justice department denied all the allegations.

The cases also include a $400,000 payout in 2017 to a woman that alleged Larry Wallace, who was an administrator under Harris, harassed and demeaned her based on her gender. Among other things, the woman alleged that Wallace frequently asked her to crawl under his desk to change the paper in his printer.

The justice department denied the claims in the settlement, which has been previously disclosed. In December, Wallace resigned his post as a senior adviser in Harris’s Sacramento office.

Senate Democrats vote for infanticide

Jeremiah 19: 3-5

Thus saith the LORD of hosts….
Behold, I will bring evil upon this place….
Because they have forsaken me, and…
have filled this place with the blood of innocents.

Yesterday, a bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) against infanticide by ensuring that babies who are born alive after botched abortions are provided medical care and treatment, failed 53-44 because every Democrat except three voted against it.

The bill, S. 130 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced by Sen. Sasse on January 15, 2019, in response to laws recently passed in New York and Virginia legalizing abortion of not just late-term (third trimester) unborn humans, but post-birth (“after labor”) abortions. Similar moves are being made in Illinois and Vermont.

To that end, S. 130 states that its purpose is “To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”

S. 130 furthermore states that “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws” because “Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”

Accordingly, “Any health care practitioner present at the time the child is born alive shall—

“(A) exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and

“(B) following the exercise of skill, care, and diligence required under subparagraph (A), ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital….

Whoever intentionally performs or attempts to perform an overt act that kills a child born alive described under subsection (a), shall be punished as under section 1111 of this title for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”

S. 130, with 48 co-sponsors, all Republicans, needed 60 votes to pass, but received only 53 “yes” votes:

  • Every Democrat, except Senators Joe Manchin (WVa), Bob Casey (PA) and Doug Jones (AL), voted against the bill, i.e., voted for infanticide:
    • Among the Demonrats who voted in favor of infanticide were every Democrat senator running for president in 2020: Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.
  • Every Republican except three voted for the bill:
    • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who supports abortion, did not vote.
    • Pro-life Republican Senators Tim Scott and Kevin Cramer, who would have voted “yes,” did not vote because they were absent due to flight delays.

During the debate on S. 130, Demonrats made false claims about the bill — that it would ban abortions or ban late-term abortions; that the bill hated women; and that abortion is about women’s health. (LifeNews)

But S. 130 is not about banning abortions, late-term or otherwise. Nor is S. 130 about women; it’s about babies who survive an abortion. Nor is S. 130 about women’s health; it’s about the health and the life of babies. Nor does S. 130 hate women. On the contrary, the bill goes out of its way to protect women whose babies survive an abortion by specifying that “The mother of a child born alive described under subsection (a) may not be prosecuted for a violation of this section, an attempt to violate this section, a conspiracy to violate this section, or an offense under section 3 or 4 of this title based on such a violation.”

Don’t believe me? Read S. 130 for yourself, here. It’s not long — only one page.

There are some who suspect the Demonrats’ bloodlust to abort late-term unborn and outright kill babies who survive abortions, may have something to do with the lucrative sale of baby parts for “scientific” research and who knows what else.

In fact, in 2017, as a result of Center for Medical Progress’ undercover video exposés, two California companies, DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, were fined and ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking world-wide in aborted baby parts (tissues and organs) obtained from Planned Parenthood of Orange County.

Most recently, on February 13, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested Roberto and William Isaías, wealthy Ecuadorian brothers who were principals in DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics. The brothers donated $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, and were given asylum in the U.S. by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s State Department also rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite the brothers to face justice for running their Ecuadorian bank into the ground, illictly profiting from government bailout funds, and wiping out the life savings of thousands of families.

Pro-reparations Kamala Harris’ ancestor was a slave-owner

Freshman senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), 54, is a 2020 presidential aspirant who at age 31 and just fresh out of law school, “slept her way” into two lucrative state government jobs that paid her nearly half a million dollars in just 4 years.

See “Confirmed: 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris slept her way into government”.

Born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, Harris is neither a “natural born” U.S. citizen (defined as both parents being U.S. citizens at the time of her birth), nor she is African American. Kamala’s mother is a Tamil Indian who immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 from Madras, India. Kamala’s father, Donald J. Harris, came to the U.S. in 1961 from Jamaica, to attend graduate study in economics at the University of California, Berkeley. (Wikipedia)

Ever the political opportunist, on Feb. 11, 2019, Kamala told NYC 105.1 AM “Breakfast Club” radio show she would support reparations for “black people” because of slavery.

So it’s the height of irony that it turns out Kamala Harris is a direct descendant of a slave-owner!

That astonishing fact was revealed yesterday by Infowars‘ news director Rob Dew: Kamala’s paternal great-grandmother was the daughter of a Jamaican slave plantation owner who founded the city of Brown’s Town, Jamaica.

Dew’s source is impeccable — the information comes from Kamala’s father himself, who is a retired professor of economics at Stanford University.

In “Reflections of a Jamaican Father,” Jamaica Gobal, Professor Donald J. Harris writes:

As a child growing up in Jamaica, I often heard it said, by my parents and family friends: “memba whe yu cum fram”. To this day, I continue to retain the deep social awareness and strong sense of identity which that grassroots Jamaican philosophy fed in me. As a father, I naturally sought to develop the same sensibility in mytwo daughters. Born and bred in America, Kamala was the first in line to have it planted. Maya came two years later and had the advantage of an older sibling as mentor. It is for them to say truthfully now, not me, what if anything of value they carried from that early experience into adulthood. My one big regret is that they did not come to know very well the two most influential women in my life: “Miss Chrishy” and “Miss Iris” (as everybody called them). This is, in many ways, a story about these women and the heritage they gave us.

My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).

Below is a picture of Kamala Harris’ paternal great-grandmother Miss Chrishy:

Donald Harris also denounces his daughter’s cynical use of identity politics, specifically Kamala attributing her smoking marijuana to her Jamaican heritage. On the same “Breakfast Club” radio show, Kamala was asked if she smoked marijuana, to which she flippantly replied: “Half my family’s from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?”

Below is Donald Harris’s statement to Jamaica Global, February 15, 2019:

My dear departed grandmothers (whose extraordinary legacy I described in a recent essay on this website), as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.

Rush Limbaugh, on his radio show yesterday, asked his audience a curious question — whether Kamala Harris is beautiful. Here’s the transcript:

Limbaugh: “Do you think she’s beautiful? Kamala Harris, is she beautiful? I’d kind of rather ask other women those questions than render an opinion myself. There’s no winning that one, so…

‘She’s not ugly,’ you say.

Okay.

Man, oh, man are the e-mails pouring in on my question of whether or not Kamala Harris is pretty or beautiful. Man, oh, man. Here is a sample: ‘I do not think Kamala is beautiful, but she’s not totally unfortunate, Mr. Limbaugh. She’s like Michelle O. On occasion, she can get her act together enough to look attractive.’

Man, it’s vicious out there. I’ve always known this. When women start weighing in on other women, it can get… It’s time to turn around, plug the ears, and forget that you hear what you hear.”

For Limbaugh to even raise the question whether his audience consider Kamala Harris to be “beautiful” suggests that many do. His allusion to women being “vicious” about other women implies that he thinks Kamala to be “beautiful” and that women who don’t are just being catty (“vicious”).

Wow.

Not only is Rush Limbaugh impaired in his esthetic judgment, he is also blind to Kamala Harris’ underlying moral character that inevitably seeps through. For in the end, physical beauty is not just skin-deep, but is shaped and informed by one’s soul.

2020 Presidential aspirant Kamala Harris wants reparations for slavery

I just knew this would happen sooner or later.

Freshman senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is a 2020 presidential aspirant who at age 31 and just fresh out of law school, “slept her way” into two lucrative state government jobs that paid her nearly half a million dollars in just 4 years. See “Confirmed: 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris slept her way into government”.

Harris is neither a “natural born” U.S. citizen (defined as both parents being U.S. citizens at the time of her birth), nor she is an African American. Her mother is a Tamil Indian, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 from Madras, India (Madras was renamed Chennai in 1996); her father came to the U.S. in 1961 from Jamaica, to attend graduate study in economics at the University of California, Berkeley. (Wikipedia)

But facts never seem to deter the Left.

After jumping onto the bandwagon of Demonrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economically-insane Green New Deal, Kamala Harris is determined to further destroy the U.S. economy with reparations for slavery. Never mind that, ruling out the contemporary scourge of sex trafficking and sex slaves:

  • Neither Kamala Harris, nor her parents, nor ANY black in the United States, for generations, had been a slave.
  • Nor has any white American, for generations, owned slaves.
  • Nor has any of the hundreds of millions of immigrants, legal or illegal, owned slaves.

Yesterday, Feb. 11, 2019, on 105.1 AM “Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City, Kamala Harris told host Charlamagne tha God she would support reparations for “black people”.

Here’s the transcript (beginning at the 25:20 mark of the video):

Charlamagne: “Where do you stand on some form of reparations for black people? Here you see Mayor De Blasio saying the marijuana economy could be a form of reparations. Marianne Williamson says black people should get a hundred billion in slave reparations–like, where do you stand on it?”

Harris: “Well look, I think that we have got to address that again, it’s back to the inequities. There, through–look, America has a history of 200 years of slavery. We had Jim Crow. We had legal segregation in America for a very long time. The Voting Rights Act was only strong for 50 years and then they wiped it out with this United States Supreme Court in the Shelby decision, to the point that 22 states immediately thereafter put in place laws that one court found were crafted with surgical precision to have black people not be able to vote. So we’ve got to recognize, back to that earlier point, people aren’t starting out on the same base, in terms of their ability to succeed and so we have got to recognize that and give people a lift up. And, there are a number of ways to do it. Part of my initiative again around the ‘Lift Act’ is that same point–you lifting people up who are making less than a hundred thousand dollars a year. What I want to do about rent is the same thing. What we need to do around education and understanding disparities, what we need to do around HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities). But we have a history of racism in America.”

Charlamagne: “So you are for some type of reparations?

Harris: “Yes I am, yes I am.”

The comments on the YouTube video, from blacks (the commenters’ gravatars), are fascinating. A sample:

Steven Blaq: “Black people ain’t accepting them butter biscuits without some quality chicken and a side of their choosing. You about to get Hillaried.”

662chillin: “Look at the dislikes on this video. Black #ADoS people are not falling for the okie doke like we did in 2008/2012 and finally getting on code. The days of #BenignNeglect and giving away our vote while helping these CBC members get rich with getting nothing in return are OVER”

Willie D Live: “You damn right we know you cannot be trusted. The criminal (in)justice system is deeply flawed because snakes like you uphold it. The little things you did were nothing more than bones thrown to gain brownie points. As your constituents looked the other way you locked up every brother you could find as your office simultaneously refused to investigate or indict corrupt police officers throughout California. You are a textbook status-quo politician, here to shuck and jive and do The Man’s bidding. Your record as DA in San Francisco, and as Attorney General of California was your audition for the oval office and you blew it like you blew a few other things. Wink, wink. You’re the worst kind of culture vulture because you prey on your people’s blind trust for those who look black. Your mama should be embarrassed and your daddy should’ve pulled out. No more talk!”

Lucifer Fire: “This chick is a pandering fraud. She thinks she can insult our intelligence by talking in circles without answering questions. We will no longer be fooled.”

bclaude87: “Between Kamala Harris and Cory Booker the Democratic party really thinks Black Americans are IDIOTS. We are not falling for the Barack Obama trick again. Lets hear real laws and policy that will result in Black Empowerment. I don’t want to hear People of Color, Minorities, Diversity, Poor People, or Urban. I am soooo tired of Black people fighting for EVERYONE else and we continue to be at the bottom and get shitted on. No Black AGENDA = No Black Vote. #Tangibles2020

michael armstrong: “I’m from Oakland ( the town) nobody young is voting for her.” [Note: Harris was born in Oakland, California, and worked in Oakland for 8 years as as an Alameda County deputy district attorney.]

Ta-seti Shafira: “Wish I had 2 extra hand so I can give this interview 4 thumbs down…to hell with what this broad is saying. #noblackagendanoblackvote #b1 #tangables2020

Liberty City El: “She had her Black voice on in full effect LOL! Nope not falling for it Carmella, you not getting my vote #Tangibles2020

J DS: “EVERY YEAR SAME WORDS, EVERY YEAR IT GETS WORSE FOR BLACK PEOPLE. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE”

Bro AJ: “No Native Black American Agenda, No Vote. We can do 4 more years of Trump if that’s the case.”

algrolls: “Obama tricked us but this heffa will not.”

Mr Mateo Jones: “OH MY GAWD! It’s Hillary Clinton all over again”

This comment, in particular, gives me such hope, from a black man:

SeedofAbraham01: “They will never confront her, question her, concerning her proabort stance, on the evils of abortion and its negative impact on the black community.”

Confirmed: 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris slept her way into government

Kamala Harris, 54, is a first-term U.S. senator for California.

A week ago on January 21, 2019, she officially announced her campaign to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 United States presidential election. In the first 24 hours, her campaign already raised $1.5 million in mostly small contributions.

Her announcement renewed questions about how Harris got her start in politics.

According to Wikipedia, in 1993, 31 years younger and fresh out of law school, Kamala Harris began “dating” California Speaker of the Assembly Willie Brown, “who introduced her to many powerful individuals in the California and Sacramento political and campaign management establishment.”

Brown later became a two-term mayor of San Francisco. In Willie Brown: A Biography, p. 404, James Richardson writes that Kamala Harris was Willie Brown’s “girl friend” although he was — and still is — married to his wife Blanche Vitero.

More than introducing her to powerful people in politics, the Washington Free Beacon points out that Brown also appointed Harris to two well-paid state commission assignments on the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and the California Medical Assistance Commission. SF Weekly reported back in 2003 that the two positions earned her more than $400,000 over five years.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle last Saturday, January 26, 2019, Willie Brown admits to his adulterous affair with Kamala Harris in a casual “what’s the big deal?” demeanor. He writes:

Elephant in the room: I’ve been peppered with calls from the national media about my “relationship” with Kamala Harris, most of which I have not returned.

Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago.

Admitting that “I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker. And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco,” Brown then breezily dismisses his nepotistic patronage, saying “I have also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians.”

Are we to think that Pelosi, Newsom and Feinstein also screwed Willie Brown into politics?

Brown’s admission that he had dated an adulterous affair with and “assisted” Kamala Harris into politics may just the beginning of the airing of her dirty laundry.

According to a Crazy Days and Nights blind last June, Kamala Harris began her political career by being the mistress of the powerful and married Willie Brown — former mayor of San Francisco and speaker of the California State Assembly — who took her to swinger parties that were “glorified orgies” where she engaged in sex with “large numbers of men and women”. CDAN claims there are compromising pictures of Harris at these orgies, “which is why senior leaders from her party are quietly trying to discourage her presidential ambitions”.

Then there is the matter that Harris is not a “natural born” U.S. citizen. Nor is she an African-American.

Kamala Harris’ parents are both immigrants:

  • Her mother is a Tamil Indian, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1960 from Madras, India. (Madras was renamed Chennai in 1996.)
  • Her father came to the U.S. in 1961 from Jamaica, to attend graduate study in economics at the University of California, Berkeley. (Wikipedia)

Since Kamala was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, neither of her parent would have been a U.S. citizen at the time. That makes Kamala Harris not a “natural born citizen,” according to the most scholarly interpretation of Section 1 of Article Two of the U.S. Constitution.

Of course, none of this matters because Democrats — with the complicity of Republicans — had made sure, with the constitutionally-illegitimate presidency of Barack Obama (whose Kenyan father was not a U.S. citizen at Barack’s birth or after), that the Constitution’s natural-born citizenship requirement for the presidency means nothing.

The Satanic motto “Do As Thou Will” is all that matters.

Big heap no surprise: Elizabeth Warren plans to run for president in 2020

Her odds of winning: 1/1024.

From NY Post: Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday announced her intention to run for president in 2020 as a champion of middle-class Americans and a foe of big banks and Wall Street fat cats.

Warren, who said she was creating an exploratory committee that will allow her to raise funds and hire staffers, will be among a crowded field of Democrats taking a shot at the White House.

“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in a four-minute, 30-second video posted to YouTube. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster,” she says. “What I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps.”

The Republican National Committee dismissed Warren’s candidacy, saying her “out of touch” agenda poses no threat to Trump. “With her lack of support from voters – including in her home state – on top of her phony claim to minority status, now that she is formally running Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud,” Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The president, who has announced that he will seek re-election in 2020, has trashed Warren in the past for her claims that she is partly Native American, referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was “strong evidence” that she has Native American blood. The release was intended to quell questions about her heritage but prompted criticism from Native American leaders and left some supported puzzled why she would rekindle the controversy.

A number of Democrats are expected to announce presidential campaigns in the next few months, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate bid in November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, are also weighing getting in the race.
