In the aftermath of Donald Trump,
a black woman like Kamala Harris
never had a chance at the presidency

Original Article

Sen. Kamala Harris would have been an excellent president. But it was never going to happen. The elephant in the room was just too big. She is a woman and she is black. And in the aftermath of Donald Trump, she never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. That’s why she abruptly withdrew from the race on Tuesday. America isn’t progressive enough to elect a black woman as head of state, any more than it was when Shirley Chisholm ran in 1972. It’s questionable whether our country can elect a woman, period.

Comments:

See? It's Donald Trump's fault! Words fail.

So Donald Trump forced Democrat primary voters to become even more racist and sexist. Yeah. That makes perfect sense.

You sanctimonious twit. When a Black woman is the best person to save the republic we'll flock to her in droves. You just cant accept that we stand on and for principles and values articulated in our founding documents and don't give a rip about the identity ties that hold you in bondage.

First of all, what the heck kind of name is "Dahleen"? smh... Anyhow, Donald Trump had absolutely NOTHING to Kamala Harris' failure as a Presidential candidate. The success or failure of every candidate rests solely with the candidate themselves. I had no problem with a black man occupying the Oval Office - just not Barack Obama. I have no problem with a woman in the Oval Office - just not Elizabeth Warren and certainly not Kamala Harris.

The problem with so many of those people is the puerile and moronic idea that they are entitled to certain positions simply because they are black.

FTA:Black candidates have to prove they can win, just as white ones do. She completely undercuts her long list of complaints by saying a black candidate has to prove he/she can win. Kamalala proved she could not win, over and over again, so was dismissed.

Sour grapes. And by the way, must of us deplorables would just as enthusiastically support the Donald if he were black and female. It's his policies, not his appearance. MLK said, something to the effect; 'let them be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the quality of their character.' No Democrat in the field has the quality of character to be a dog catcher, and that would be slandering Animal Control Officers.

Sweet Jesus, the illogical meanderings of the writer overwhelm me! Blacks did not support Kamala Sutra. Period. And we will not know if Kamala would have done anything in Iowa with white voters, since she blew through several million dollars and ran out of funds to spend on Iowa Motel 6, Super 8, and Avis rent a car bills. (I suspect her internal polls showed the Canadian-Jamaican-Indian strumpet that she was out of luck in Iowa.) Shirley Chisholm is another matter. Chisholm, I recall, was an elementary teacher (based only on my memory) who captured a majority-minority congressional district race,created by the Voting Rights Act and Federal judge rulings, in NYC. She was a sincere, energetic, lovely lady who was more shrill, at times, than Lady Lucifer. She complained loudly, and bitterly, when the Speaker put her on the House Agriculture Committee, finding it to be an inferior assignment. She was the elementary teacher who made you do your homework. And I doubt she could have carried her own district in a presidential election. Kamala Sutra is exquisitely unqualified to be president, just as Peter the Homosexual is, as the failed mayor of a small city . I don't think Kamala would have pulled many votes in California - they know her too well there - and Peter the Homosexual could not carry his home state. Same with ugly Amy, whose drunken father is a campaign foil for her. The article saddens me. The writer would receive a D for effort from me.

I am beyond weary of identity politics. It leads nowhere and enlightens no one. It just inflames. Dahleen would never think that perhaps Harris's ideas were examined and rejected by the American people. No, it must be her sex and her race. That is useful, perhaps, for convincing other people of her identity class to be aggrieved, but this sort of mindless groupthink has no place in the 21st century.

I will NEVER vote for someone who profited by Me Too. She's a prime example of the third leg of that vile triangle: the woman who gladly took the bargain offered, no matter what it did to the chances of sisters who didn't put out. How dare she set herself up as a modern role model? For hundreds of years women have advanced on their backs (with or without marriage, I'm looking at YOU Hillary) - NO MORE! It's 2019, stand tall or go home.

No. After Obama, it may be more than 50 years before another black person is elected President if their main attribute for votes is their skin color. Obama might just have proved the theory of racial differences in IQ in "The Bell Curve."

In the aftermath of Barack Hussein obama, Kamala Harris, an empty-suited hypocrite who bragged about prosecuting people for doing what she was also doing, never had a chance at gaining the kind of broad support needed to keep her campaign financially viable. One obama was enough for America.

So Harris 'identifies as black'. What she did was try to pawn herself off as an African-American to get the black vote. I have seen lots of articles that refer to her that way so the media was in on the scam as is Cory Booker. The Party of Diversity has 5 white losers left on the stage.

Cut out the whiney pity party for poor old Kamala. It was only DEMOCRATs who had anything to do with her not continuing in the race. The fact that she was even more unlikable than Hillary Clinton and a snarky mean person also had a lot to do with it. If and when the right candidate comes along, people will vote for that person based on who they are and what they stand for (no matter their skin color). Liberals need to stop seeing everything in racial terms. Stop blaming a persons race on their personal failures.

Kamala Harris is NOT African-American. Her parents are from Jamaica and India, and she is a first generation American. If people like her want Americans to vote for them, they need to stop labeling themselves. Run as an American who cares about America. Also, if you want to run on your record, remember that your record IS a record. By definition, it is recorded and we can and should look at it. Kamala Harris should take a good look at her record before attempting to run for national public office.

When the first sentence of your editorial is a huge bald-faced lie, it portends very quickly that your editorial is going to be a huge stinking pile of BS!!!! Kamala Harris didn't lose because she is black or a woman. She lost because she was a horrible candidate who got where she got by sleeping her way there (sort of like the Hilldebeast). The only thing that Dahleen Glanton got right in this really stupid editorial is that Demon-Rats (and all lie-berals for that matter) truly are huge racists!!!! Sorry, hon, but that leaves out conservatives and your president, Donald Trump!!!!!

I agree with #19. Obama screwed it up for leftist and liberal Democrat Black candidates being able to get elected anytime in the future. The best chance a Black politician to assume the presidency these days is to jump on Biden’s ticket in the Vice-President slot, hope that Biden is elected, and thereafter that Biden’s noggin goes completely haywire or that Biden slips on a rock, opening the way for such a Black politician to assume the Presidency without actually being elected President. As far as Kamala Harris is concerned, from her TV appearances, both during congressional committee hearings and on the campaign trail it is very evident that she is one nasty piece of work! Also Harris who fraudulently portrays herself as an African-American is not a traditional African-American, as she grew up in Canada the daughter of a highly educated man from Jamaica and a highly educated mother from India. This ridiculous article is just further proof that all the Democrats have on their side is identity politics. Beyond that forget it!

There is not one Democrat that voted for her. Not a single one! Frankly, the voting has not begun! She is responsible for her own message and her own fund-raising and the Democrats neither supported her financially or accepted her message. Those racist people! She and the Chicago Tribune cannot blame this on anyone else. She was a poor candidate. No, not because she is a black woman, but because she is not popular among her own party.

Kamala's problem is not that she is a woman, nor that she is black, but that she has built her career based on meanmouth (and, like Dahleen, had a mother who could not spell). Bitchiness, Kamala's salient characteristic, is not an attribute that people seek out for leadership.

The writer of the article claims that Black women, who comprise one of the largest leftist and liberal Democrat identity based population groups, get the worst societal deal of any such group. In that respect one must ask is that because so many Black women have such bad anti-social attitudes, as anyone who has hired Black women to employment opportunities quickly finds out?

She didn't really want to be a Senator just ran for the office as platform to the presidency. Didn't work out as planned.

Following the Allied breakout from the Normandy beachhead in July 1944, the German army fled back through northern France, Belgium and southern Holland to the frontiers of the Reich. The British and Canadians took Brussels on Sept. 3, 1944, and entered Antwerp the next day while American units crossed the German frontier near Charlemagne’s old capital of Aachen. It looked as if the war would be over by Christmas. The Allies were suffering a bad case of victory fever.

It is a puzzlement whether the cottage industry of international election observers populating the American commentariat really understand what is at stake in the upcoming British parliamentary election. It should be more widely discussed than it is. And analyses should focus on what is motivating voters, rather than whether the Tories or Labor are more likely, according to the polls, to come out ahead. In reality, the future of representative democracy may be on the line, at least as far as the idea the people deserve to get what they voted for.

Florida wildlife managers hope to tap the country’s biggest sports event for help with one of the state’s biggest environmental threats. The Florida Python Challenge, a competitive hunt for the Burmese python — an invasive snake that’s decimating small mammals and birds in the Everglades — plays off Super Bowl hype in Miami with something called the 2020 Python Bowl. As part of promoting the snake hunt, the state even had a football made from python skin, which Gov.

When the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor, few in Washington believed that the Japanese were capable of—or even had intentions to—attack the United States. That the Japanese armada struck at Pearl Harbor, an island redoubt many Americans assumed was too far from Japan for their forces to reach, was even more shocking. Yet, the attack was hardly a surprise. What’s more, Pearl Harbor was an entirely avoidable event. As the old saying goes, “It takes two to tango.” Tokyo did not merely wake up one day and decide to engage in the dastardliest "surprise" attack in American history (which, Pearl Harbor was until the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, occurred).

Don’t bet against the attractiveness of platitudes, sanctimony, and a vague promise of refreshing the American spirit. It worked in 2008. But Barack Obama had a global financial crisis and war weariness to run against. He also had a way with the electorate. Does Pete Buttigieg? His elevator pitch to American voters is essentially “Obama, But Gay.” Some recent polls have him leading in both Iowa and New Hampshire. His strength seems mainly an indicator of the comically obvious weaknesses of the party’s three stumblin’ septuagenarian front-runners, yet his base of college-educated white Democratic-primary voters were the first ones to get really excited about Obama, even before black voters did.

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing in the latest phase of the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. Based on everything we know about the committee’s past oversight efforts, statements by Republican committee members and the president’s defense team, and the details of the panel itself, one thing seems clear: Compared with the staid and productive fact-finding work conducted by the House Intelligence Committee over the past few weeks, this hearing will almost certainly be a disaster.

I’m told that I’m not supposed to feel like this — or, at least, that if I do feel like this, I’m not supposed to say so in public. People worked on that campaign, you see. People tried really hard. But that, I’m afraid, is a load of old nonsense. Harris was running for the presidency, which is another way of saying that she was running to acquire power.

If you’ve ever watched the Food Network, tuned into MasterChef Junior—where he frequently and endearingly calls the young contestants mijo or mija (“my son,” “my daughter”)—or have even a passing interest in Mexican or Latin American cuisine, you’ve likely heard of celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez. The El Paso native is the owner of the splashy yet traditional Mexican restaurant Johnny Sanchez in New Orleans, as well as the son of a celebrity chef in her own right, Zarela Martinez. Sánchez recently published the memoir, Where I Come From: Life Lessons From a Latino Chef, a frank and vulnerable account of his life, from his earliest days

Kamala Harris is getting major buzz as a possible vice presidential pick even as Democrats raised the alarm over a dramatic lack of diversity in the all-white top tier of their presidential primary contest. Just days after Harris pulled the plug on her White House campaign, former rivals Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren both name-dropped her as a potential running mate. (Snip) “She can be president someday herself, she can be vice president, she could go on to be a Supreme Court justice, she could be attorney general," Biden said. "I mean she has enormous capability.” Warren also raced to

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.

A Methodist church in Claremont unveiled a nativity scene Saturday night depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees in cages, likening one of the most well-known images of the Christmas season to photos that have become synonymous with criticism of the Trump administration’s border separation policies. The display, which has stoked debate on the Facebook page of the church’s lead pastor, shows classic nativity figurines of Joseph and Mary in cages on either side of a cage containing the manger of Jesus. “We see this as, in some ways, the Holy Family standing in for the nameless families,” said the Rev. Karen Clark Ristine, the lead pastor at Claremont United Methodist Church.
Adam Schiff Has Jumped the Shark 31 replies

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

We all know that social media is bad for the soul. If someone is in, as they say, ‘a bad place’, a good friend wouldn’t send them onto Twitter. A good friend would tell them to switch off, put away the iPhone, and get some fresh air, away from the fervid online swamp of liking, blue-ticks, trolls, and ratios. George Conway needs that sort of friend right now. The poor man is clearly not well. His wife Kellyanne works for Donald Trump. He hates Trump and goes around saying how awful the 45th president is. There’s been all sorts of speculation as to the health of relationship,

Pensacola, FL - The Saudi gunman who killed three people at the Pensacola naval base had apparently gone on Twitter shortly before the shooting to blast US support of Israel and accuse America of being anti-Muslim, a US official said Sunday as the FBI confirmed it is operating on the assumption the attack was an act of terrorism. Investigators are also trying to establish whether the killer, identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Alshamrani, 21, of the Royal Saudi Air Force, acted alone. Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack at a classroom building Friday, was undergoing flight training at Pensacola, where members of foreign militaries routinely receive instruction.

Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed in a new interview that when his son Hunter was a board member of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while he was in office, no one informed him that it could pose a problem. Biden insisted again that Hunter did nothing wrong, but this time appeared to fault his staff for not cluing him in that there could be concerns about his son's involvement with the foreign company that had been under investigation while Biden was in office and dealing with Ukraine policy.

Shortly after California Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was ending her presidential bid, the question of depleting diversity in the Democratic field became a rallying point for several of the remaining minority candidates in their own campaigns. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker in an impassioned speech on Thursday blasted the influence of money in politics as one of the reasons she dropped out. (Snip) However, several minority presidential candidates have complained that the structure of the Democratic National Committee's polling and fundraising rules to qualify for debates unduly makes it difficult to get the coveted primetime spots on stage needed

"What happened to Drudge?"A lot of people have been asking that question lately. If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance. And now, Rasmussen Reports, an arguably reputable polling operation, is calling Drudge out on Twitter, even suggesting that the site has been sold. The whole kerfuffle appears to have begun at the end of November, when the Bongino Report, touted as a Trump-friendly alternative to Drudge, launched. Bongino taunted Drudge with a pair of tweets:
Portland considers “mandatory rest spaces”

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.

In a fantastic display of true investigative journalism, One America News journalist Chanel Rion tracked down Ukrainian witnesses as part of an exclusive OAN investigative series. The evidence being discovered dismantles the baseless Adam Schiff impeachment hoax and highlights many corrupt motives for U.S. politicians. Ms. Rion spoke with Ukrainian former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who outlines how former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch perjured herself before Congress.Senator Lindsey Graham is directly connected to the group of U.S. politicians who were participating in the influence network within Ukraine. One of the downstream consequences of Rudy Giuliani investigating the Ukraine corruption and money laundering operation to U.S. officials is that it ends up

If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a "practicing Catholic," then Sen. Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian. If she is a practicing Catholic, then one hopes that one day, she gets it right. You cannot be in fundamental disagreement with a fundamental doctrine of the Catholic Church and then wrap yourself in its vestments to proclaim you don't hate anybody.
