Where Is Kamala Harris?

Featured image Has Kamala Harris been sent into the federal witness protection program? It seems so. She’s disappeared from view suddenly. No more interviews with network anchors apparently. Think of it as the “Democratic Election Prospects Protection Program.” The Hill reports today: Harris’s bad polls trigger Democratic worries Vice President Harris has some ground to make up in order to be perceived more favorably by the public, a complicating factor for the »

Kamala: Weighed and Found Wanting

Featured image As I have written before, going into the 2020 presidential season I thought Kamala Harris had a good chance to come away with the Democratic nomination. She seemed to check all of that party’s boxes. But, as in the old story about the dog food advertising campaign, the voters just didn’t like her. She was gone from the race before the Iowa caucuses. Continued exposure has not raised Harris in »

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, Anti-Vaxxers

Featured image The Biden administration is now colluding with Facebook and, perhaps, other social media platforms–Jen Psaki says that anyone who is banned from one site should be banned from all–to shut down any discussion of the pros and cons of anti-covid vaccination as “misinformation.” Any suggestion that the vaccine might not be for everyone is, according to Joe Biden, “killing people.” How soon they expect us to forget! Just one year »

The trouble with Kinko’s

Featured image At Legal Insurrection Ms. Fuzzy Slippers asks “Why Is Kamala The Last Democrat Still Arguing Against Voter I.D.?” The answer to Ms. Slippers’ question has something to do with Kinko’s. According to Harris, rural voters can’t find a Kinko’s at which to copy their id’s. This is true, but that is because FedEx deep-sixed the Kinko’s name in 2008 with an accompanying $891 million charge-off (“non-cash impairment”). That was 13 »

The real Kamala Harris

Featured image If Kamala Harris didn’t exist, the media would have to invent her. The mainstream media is determined to treat Joe Biden with kid gloves. Gossip about the White House seems largely off-limits and apparently not easy to come by without great effort. But journalists love gossip and drama, so they seek them one level down from the Oval Office. And what’s more dramatic than a woman on track to becoming »

The Kamala Konundrum

Featured image By now it is clear that Kamala Harris has had the worst week for a Vice President since Dan Quayle misspelled “potato” and attacked Murphy Brown almost 30 years ago. There are news reports, no doubt aided and abetted by some cagey White House staff, that the White House is “troubled” or even “dismayed” by her poor performance. I’m guessing a lot of Biden’s long-time loyal staff have discovered the »

Never been to Spain, Kamala Harris edition

Featured image If our cyborg president malfunctions, the ludicrous Kamala Harris will try to step into its very small shoes. What a lightweight leftist hack she is. She can’t even handle a friendly interviewer without embarrassing herself (video below). HARRIS: "We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border."Harris: "We’ve been to the border."Harris: "We’ve been to the border."HOLT: "You haven’t been to the border."Harris: "I… and I haven’t »

Guatemalans to Kamala Harris: Clueless Yankee go home

Featured image Kamala Harris is visiting Guatemala carrying this message from Joe Biden: “Guatemalans stay home.” Indeed, according to this New York Post report, Harris pleaded with potential migrants not to come to U.S. Begging people not to do what they clearly believe is in their interests isn’t much of a strategy for dealing with the border crisis. Thus, it’s not surprising that Harris isn’t being well received. Protesters greeted Harris with »

Kamala Harris’ woke joke at the Naval Academy

Featured image Kamala Harris delivered the commencement address yesterday at the U.S. Naval Academy. In an attempt at woke humor, Harris inserted feminism into her homage to green energy. She said: Just ask any Marine today, would she rather carry 20 pounds of batteries or a rolled up solar panel, and I am positive she will tell you a solar panel. And so would he. At least Harris limited herself to two »

The Deep Unpopularity of Kamala Harris (2)

Featured image Further to John’s item a couple days ago about the unpopularity of Kamala Harris, the story got a new chapter yesterday courtesy of The Atlantic. Like the New York Times article on Biden reported here Saturday, this Atlantic article has some damning material about Harris if you read it carefully and translate the deeper meaning. Like Biden, she’s not really able to perform live in prime time either: Critics of »

Report: Kamala keeps list of journalists who don’t respect her life experiences

Featured image Andrew Stiles of The Washington Free Beacon reports: Vice President Kamala Harris keeps a list of reporters and other political types who might be racist, according to a profile published in the Atlantic on Monday. [Note: The Atlantic article doesn’t explicitly mention racism.] “The vice president and her team tend to dismiss reporters. Trying to get her to take a few questions after events is treated as an act of »

The Deep Unpopularity of Kamala Harris

Featured image To me, Kamala Harris was one of the mysteries of the 2020 election cycle. She seemed to check a lot of boxes, and I saw her as an attractive candidate who had a good shot–maybe the best–at the Democratic presidential nomination. Instead, her campaign crumbled out of the starting gate, and notwithstanding ample initial fundraising, she didn’t make it to the Iowa caucuses. Despite having a number of superficial advantages, »

Harris on the hot seat

Featured image A black minister recently made the following pitch to Kamala Harris. With Purim, a Jewish holiday, in mind, he implored her to follow Queen Esther’s example and rescue low-wage earning Americans by disregarding Senate rules and smuggling a minimum wage hike into pandemic relief legislation. It’s an obscene comparison. Queen Esther rescued Jews from death. A higher minimum wage would help some Blacks make a little more money (and cause »

Kamala Harris and Other Leftists Spring Rapist From Jail

Featured image In the wake of last Summer’s devastating riots in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Hollywood celebrities and left-wing politicians led by Kamala Harris joined forces to bail out violent criminals who committed arson, looting and other felonies. But apparently there were not enough such criminals to go around–not enough who got arrested, anyway–so the Hollywood/D.C. leftists bailed out everyone in sight. Along with other victims, one or more Minnesota women have »

Kamala Harris’ pathetic dodge on school reopenings

Featured image There were two problems with trotting out Kamala Harris to defend the Biden administration’s record on school “reopening.” First, Biden’s record is indefensible. Second, Harris isn’t very intelligent. Katie Pavlich has a good summary of Biden’s record. First, Biden promised. . .to open [the majority of] schools “within 100 days” of taking office. Once in office, the White House changed the narrative to re-opening schools “safely” if the $1.9 trillion »

History Reruns

Featured image Today’s foundational texts are the famous Marx quote about history repeating itself first as tragedy and then as farce, and Santayana’s axiom that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. • On the first, we have the ever-farcical liberals going from stepping on rakes to stepping on land mines. Or in this case, Vice President Kamala Harris telling the people of West Virginia that they need to »

North Korea Comes to America

Featured image If you think that totalitarian dictatorships are home to the ultimate sycophants, the reaction of the American press to the Biden administration may cause you to reconsider. Then there is this paean to Kamala Harris. Watch it if you dare: Promise not to kill yourself after watching this? pic.twitter.com/Bt1EF5O6pO — Jon Miller (@MillerStream) January 28, 2021 »
