*During her very brief stint (2017 – present) in the Republican-controlled US Senate, Harris has tried to develop a progressive persona by speaking on behalf of liberal causes such as immigration reform, marijuana legalization and increased pay for schoolteachers. She scored more points with liberals by aggressively questioning Trump’s right-wing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
In her disastrous and prematurely concluded presidential campaign, Harris clumsily tried to play the great game of Americans politics – “the manipulation of populism by elitism” (Christopher Hitchens) – by inauthentically posing as a candidate of “the people.” She briefly took up Bernie Sanders’ call for “Medicare for All” but then reversed herself on ending private health insurance in favor of a federally financed system.
She promised to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients from deportation and opposed Trump’s border wall with Mexico, but, tellingly, failed to vote against Trump’s network of immigrant detention camps along the US-Mexico border.
She backs a boosting of the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, but says nothing about how such an increase would leave millions of workers poor while ineligible for food stamps, housing subsidies and Medicaid.
Harris has also been a big player in the Democrats’ Russiagate campaign, demanding Trump’s impeachment which did not follow the Constitution but sharia law – THAT YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL YOU PROVEN YOURSELF INNOCENT. Remember that Pelosi “cock and bull story?”
Ask Harris why she has three padlocks on her doors at her residence?
Attorney General Harris and her multimillionaire white husband had “three padlocks on [their] front door” because the class rule and racial oppression system she spent her adult life serving and protecting had reached such stunning levels of savage inequality that the top tenth of the American One Percent possessed as much combined wealth as the nation’s bottom 90 percent while the median household black-white wealth gap had reached six black cents on the white dollar. These disparities were only worsened by the giant racist mass arrest and incarceration regime that she and her future presidential running mate JOE “THREE STRIKES” BIDEN DID SO MUCH TO ADVANCE.
She continues to swim around the swamp trying to attach herself to a cause which will give her more starch which hasn’t happened – because “you can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. She has been feeding at the trough of plenty for many years – ask Willie Brown, former Governor of California. As the story goes, he can even tell you the brand of her lingerie.
Harris was born in the U.S. but was schooled as a Canadian liberal through and through. Her father is a Marxist professor.
Trust, but verify!
