oe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris, the prominent senator from California whose political career has included many barrier-breaking moments, as his running mate, his campaign announced on Tuesday. The decision comes more than a year after Harris, who was also a 2020 Democratic candidate, clashed with Biden over racial issues during the first primary debate. If elected, she would be the nation’s first female, first Black and first Asian American vice president.

Probably the least likable, other than the witch Whitmer from MI. Great pick for us, it appeared that even blacks did not like her based on her South Carolina performance. Where was Jim Clyburn? Finally - she's not "black" - Jamaican / India Indian. Plus she is a nasty, nasty person.

From what I read, #1, you are right. Democrats must know it yet they have something up their sleeve. As for me and my house, this news does not move me. Trump will be reelected in 2020.

Ha! Knew it! The Dems are worried about CA. That is the only logical reason to put her on the ticket. She adds nothing electorally to a Biden ticket. The Dems know they are toast. Just trying to keep the down ballot in their biggest stronghold safe... And try to delegitimize Trump's victory along the way. That and old Gropy Joe wants some brown sugar.

She is NOT African-American, and they will try to fool enough people by stating she's black with the hope that word sounds like the same thing. She's Jamacian (father) and Indian (mother) which is NOT Asian-American either.

Apparently Harris was born in California to a father who was a Jamaican citizen and a mother who was a citizen of India at the time of her birth and then for the most part resided in Canada until she was 18 years of age. So Harris is not of traditional African-American heritage, which brings up the question because of her parent’s foreign citizenship, does Harris meet the constitutional requirement of being a natural born citizen at the time of her birth? Chances are if some States keep her off the Democrat ballot as not meeting that constitutional requirement that the five liberals on the Supreme Court will have the final say on Harris’s natural born citizenship status. Biden picking Harris is not really going to help Biden win any States that he would not have won otherwise. If you watched Harris during past Senate hearings it is clear that she is a very abrasive and nasty piece of work, and does not in anyway come across as a friendly and likable person. Maybe Biden will deputize Harris to debate President Trump in his behalf?

Technically, Obama wasn’t eligible either due to his alleged daddy’s African citizenship at his time of birth. Highly doubt anyone cares about Willie Brown’s concubine being ineligible either. Remember, POC and Dems are above the law. Barf.

Frightening thought that this radical, commie thug female from Commie California would be President if Biden is elected President because Biden will not last a year in office before he croaks from either dementia or old age. Can you imagine Biden trying to repeat the oath of office for President when he can't even read off of a teleprompter? We all must work harder than ever to make sure President Trump is re-elected and the reality is the democrat communists are dedicated to outright stealing this election at all levels and imposing a totalitarian dictatorship over our beloved country.. Kamala Harris looks like a retired gone to fat WWF wrestler who transitioned from male to faux female. Brutal.

Joe must have liked her slight Indian accent, which he is prone to comment on. But I think she's an awkward fit. Her own campaign flopped. As others have said - she is Not African American. Expect an Et Tu Brute moment if this pair somehow wins.

Biden selected someone who slept their way to where they are (per Willie Brown in California) and seems even less likable than Hillary. Any criticism of Kamala Harris will be met with "your'e attacking women" or "your'e a racist" by Biden / Harris supporters. Harris will be anointed as the second coming. Her selection is nothing more than pandering to blacks and women. Unfortunately, some people may now vote for Biden / Harris so they can feel good abut themselves and help alleviate their "white guilt" and prove to themselves that they are not racist (these are people who are too dumb to be voting).

It is my understanding of nationality law that if you are born in the United States you are an American citizen by virtue of that birth irrespective of the nationality or legal status of your parents. If that is correct she is eligible. That is why so many pregnant foreign national mothers try to get to the US to have their baby: so the child can be an American citizen at birth and grant them some kind of immigration preference.

It is really ironic that the founding fathers were worried about foreigners heading up the brand new U.S. government, tried to write clear language to avoid that, and we recently suffered through 8 years of a foreigner as president, and we run the risk of having another foreigner as Vice President, and, perhaps quickly, president. At least Barack Obola had one parent who was a U.S. citizen. Kamala sutra has not one. now I have to wonder if Kamala's mother became a Canadian citizen, and did the same with her two small daughters...even Chief Judas John Roberts would have trouble with that...

If both her parents were Green Card holders at the time of her birth, the SCOTUS esp under Judas Roberts might consider that to be equivalent of Natural Born Citizenship. God knows more unnatural acts have been committed with the Constitution.

This debate will never end, but I am of the view, as are most people. that there is nothing to support the idea that you have to be born of US citizen parents to be a natural born citizen. Being born in the US is enough. I do think there is an argument that citizenship should not be granted if the parents are here illegally.

Hmmm, chosen for Biden's running mate was a leftist DA who was putting potheads in jail while toking herself, all while sleeping with a married man to get the senate seat. Biden is a DNC throwaway candidate for an election they already expect to lose. 20+ second tier candidates (not a first tier candidate in the bunch) and now we see two second tier candidates teamed together; the junior who called the senior a racist. Fine. Let’s get on to November. As quickly as Hideaway Joe's health is going down hill, the only way he could have been the sitting president for any shorter period of time is if he had picked Hillary Clinton as his running mate.

She is a globalist/Soros plant. This is how the globalists continue their onslaught to destroy America. No conspiracy theory, she was funded by Soros for Senate here in CA. You want to know who's behind the Biden campaign and why he's still on the front of the ticket, that's why. The majority of America doesn't want to be another socialist experiment--but Soros is counting on us to be. His billions, along with Bill Gates' billions are funding the globalist movement. Harris is Soros's way to the Oval Office. They must be stopped! The lawlessness across the country has been funded by him and his cronies. He will stop at nothing to gain the world. Call me crazy, but you know he's bought the AG offices of most states and cities--you're watching it in Seattle, Portland, and Chicago. Harris was part of that in CA. MAGA!!! KAG!!!

No one is going to pay any attention to the "natural born citizen" question and the republicans would be wise to let it be. Of more potent concern is the fact that she holds dual citizenship with India and some sort of reciprocal citizenship arrangement with with Jamaica ( and probably Britain as part of the British Commonwealth. All of which is currently being scrubbed from the internet. And just like the last Anti American Democrat Placeholder in chief she spent the first 18 years of her life in a foreign country, this time Canada. One can argue fairly persuasively that her loyalties and ideology is conflicted, to say the least. She has also tried to connect with Black americans by touting her experiences growing up under segregation. She was born in the stalwart bastion segregation California, the same year the civil rights act was passed, years after Jim Crow laws had been tossed on histories trash heap and the first cognitive memory she has of living in the "segregationist" hell hole of Southern California was during Reagan's presidency. Shes toast and Biden wouldn't recognize toast if it had butter and jam on it.

Not so fast #40. First of all the concept of an anchor baby being a citizen is entirely based on a court decision and is still a subject of contention among legal scholars. Secondly it does not ipso facto follow that an anchor baby would qualify as a NATURAL BORN citizen which is a higher standard in the constitution intended to ensure no dual loyalties for our president. As a dual citizen of USA and Jamaica its doubtful that she will be held to be qualified if challenged which I think she will be in court. The only thing she has going for her is that if the suit is brought say by the RNC there will be the usual race card references being played. It might be politically risky to challenge her but hopefully someone will.

I'm so surprised at the number of L-dotters who do not know/understand the difference between being a "native" born citizen and a "natural" born citizen, and why the founding fathers thought this out in advance to include it in our Constitution.

I have lived in California during the Age of Kamala. It has been the era when the state that elected world-class Republican conservatives to statewide office left the mainland. From governors like Ronald Reagan, George Deukmejian, and Pete Wilson, the state became the showcase for Democrats nationwide to see what illegal immigration could do to political demographics. We soon were returning to Jerry Brown — Governor Moonbeam — this time bereft of Linda Ronstadt and her roller skates, with the loon focused instead on building a Speed Train from Nowhere to Nowhere. In 2008 they told us it would cost $33.6 billion.

It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned. One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Some progressives expressed their frustration and condemnation of Joe Biden's selection of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate. Ever since Biden became the presumptive Democratic nominee, there has been an ongoing debate on the left as to who he could pick as his vice president that can motivate enough of the base, including supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to support the ticket in November. On Tuesday, Biden announced that Harris would be his vice president. Sanders himself extended his support for his Senate colleague and former 2020 rival.

For years, Bryant Park Grill & Cafe in Midtown Manhattan has been one of the country’s top-grossing restaurants, the star property in Ark Restaurants’ portfolio of 20 restaurants across the United States. But what propelled it to the top has vanished. The tourists are gone, the office towers surrounding it are largely empty and the restaurant’s 1,000-seat dining room is closed. Instead, dinner is cooked and served on its patio, and the scaled-down restaurant brings in about $12,000 a day — an 85 percent plunge in revenue, its chief executive said.

Left-wing prosecutors have implemented soft-on-crime approaches to criminal justice across America, in some instances making it a matter of policy in major cities not to prosecute specific crimes, a Daily Caller News Foundation review found. A common, though not universal, feature of prominent left-wing district attorneys is the backing of political organizations funded by left-wing billionaire George Soros. The New York Times has credited Soros with pioneering the “push to overhaul prosecutors’ offices” across the country. Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx, whose jurisdiction includes Chicago, took office in 2017 after winning her election with the help of a Soros-funded super PAC.

Bill Gates is the smartest guy in the room, nay, on the planet, and he wants everybody, from the White House to the medical community to John Q. Citizen in Anytown, U.S.A., to know it. How else to explain his feigned incredulity on CNN of America’s coronavirus test process to that of other nations? Let’s remember: Gates is a computer guy. He’s not actually a medical expert. This is what he said when asked by CNN host Fareed Zakaria to explain America’s handling of the pandemic, as Mediaite noted: “I wouldn’t have predicted that we would do so poorly.”
Debates Will Be Biden’s Undoing 19 replies

It should by now be clear to the meanest intelligence that key advisers to former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, are terrified of allowing him to stand next to President Trump on a debate stage. Consequently, they have deployed various Biden-friendly pundits to denounce presidential debates in general as meaningless exercises in empty showmanship. Elizabeth Drew, for example, advises the readers of the New York Times that these quadrennial contests more closely resemble wrestling matches than genuine debates about important issues. They reward “snappy comebacks and one-liners” rather than substantive discussions of serious issues. In the end she inadvertently refutes her own claim.
‘Defund the Police’ is a media fantasy 13 replies

A new, exhaustive study by Gallup and the Knight Foundation found that Americans across the board are losing trust in the media. Some people might be shocked by this finding, but I suspect more people will be shocked to learn that the media had any trust left to lose. Either way, I think a separate poll conducted by Gallup might illuminate the problem. If you’ve paid any attention to the news, particularly cable news, over the last couple of months since George Floyd’s killing by police in Minneapolis, you might think “defunding” or “abolishing” the police is a widely held and even somewhat mainstream desire.

A convoy consisting of thousands of bikers headed for a South Dakota rally will not be allowed to cross Cheyenne River Sioux checkpoints on their way to the event, according to a Native American spokesman. The spokesman said Saturday that the band of travelers would be stopped on their way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, in the name of preventing coronavirus from spreading any further. The seven tribes that make up the Sioux Nation are now in a fight with federal and state officials, who deemed such checkpoints to be illegal.

Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to have announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. There was an inquisitive photographer's shot of his notes suggesting just that. But there's also some question about whether she's really qualified. The media has already seeded the ground with quotes from some of the dumbest lawyers in America to state she is a “natural born citizen” under Article II of the U.S. Constitution, and is therefore, eligible to be vice president or president.

Monday on CNN’s “OutFront,” former Gov. John Kasich (R-OH), who is set to speak in support of Joe Biden for president at the Democratic National Convention, said Evangelicals’ support for Trump was not “consistent with the things that they believe in as promoted in the Old and New Testament.” Kasich pointed to Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s faith as a determining factor in his support. Kasich said, “I would encourage other Republicans to know that it is okay to take off a partisan hat, take off your partisan hat and vote on the basis of what your conscience tells you about the future

oe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris, the prominent senator from California whose political career has included many barrier-breaking moments, as his running mate, his campaign announced on Tuesday. The decision comes more than a year after Harris, who was also a 2020 Democratic candidate, clashed with Biden over racial issues during the first primary debate. If elected, she would be the nation’s first female, first Black and first Asian American vice president.

As regular readers of my column know, I’m no fan of Donald Trump. And that’s putting it mildly. I don’t like his chronic dishonesty. I don’t like narcissism. I don’t like his nastiness and his silly name-calling. I detest his need to constantly cause chaos, as he did with a recent tweet suggesting we should postpone the 2020 presidential election. There’s nothing about this man’s character that I like. And I hope he wins re-election in a landslide. Actually what I mean is that I hope the Republican candidate beats the Democratic candidate. And I wish the Republican candidate were almost anybody else.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.

Kamala Harris, tapped on Tuesday as Joe Biden’s running mate, attended services at both a Black Baptist church and a Hindu temple growing up – an interfaith background that reflects her historic status as the first Black woman and woman of South Asian descent on a major-party presidential ticket. The 55-year-old first-term Democratic senator, whose name means “lotus” in the Sanskrit language, identifies as a Baptist as an adult and brought another faith into her life in 2014 when she married Douglas Emhoff, a Jewish attorney. Their wedding featured the breaking of a glass, a Jewish tradition, and Harris’ stepchildren

Since Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President, the negative immediate media coverage of Harris has, as expected, been swift and vicious. She’s already been attacked by right-wing commenters, and called ‘nasty’ by the President. But another big, underlying trend has been far simpler: Harris’ first name has been regularly mispronounced, often intentionally by the likes of seasoned political commentators like Tucker Carlson. But Harris, who pronounces her first name “COMMA-luh” and not “kuh-MA-luh,” shouldn’t have to deal with this. She’s been in the political spotlight for years, including her own presidential run just a few

It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned. One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Joseph R. Biden Jr. has told allies that he has interviewed every finalist in his vice-presidential search, and his advisers are planning an announcement for the middle of the week, people briefed on the selection process said on Monday. In a sign that the choice is now in Mr. Biden’s hands alone, the four-member committee that screened his potential running mates is said to have effectively disbanded — its work is complete, Biden allies said, and there is little left to do except for Mr. Biden to make up his mind. Mr. Biden’s political team has prepared rollout plans for several of the finalists, and he is expected to announce his decision

Major League Baseball teams are looking into introducing camera technology to ballparks that could detect whether or not fans are wearing masks in the stands. The software could also flag attendees who are wearing them improperly, like leaving their nose uncovered or dangling them around their neck. Several teams are in talks with Airspace Systems Inc, a California security firm with technology that can scan security footage for mask 'hot spots.' In trial runs, the Airspace system was able to clock mask use with over 80 percent accuracy.
