    1. Please do not think of this as any kind of criticism, but take it at face value. It is nothing more than the question it presents as. Namely, what point are you attempting to make when you linked that article?

    2. Jayhawk,
      Just the point that the human mind has trouble discerning truth -- even when the truth should be obvious.

      I found the last paragraph particularly important:

      That’s the solution to the paradox of fiction, and why telling ourselves, “It’s only a movie,” can only partially attenuate the feelings we have about it. Our brains can’t help but believe.

      Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, for example. Also Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, which one of my students at the time assured me was truth because "I saw it at the movies."

    3. I can't really argue with that. I think my question was more specifically how does it relate to Kamela Harris?

    4. Jayhawk,
      Kamala Harris changes positions on policy and on Biden himself when the wind blows. What are her principles and her positions on any given policies? What's more, can the electorate see the truth about Kamala Harris?

    5. I interpret it as, behind the mask of a moderate, she is a far lefty.

      Got it. Thanks. Understanding, I fully agree with your position.

    1. Yes, indeed, but ALL the Demonrats at the Kavanaugh "Hearing" (really KANGAROO COURT!) were equally guilty of that kind of attempt at character assassination just as they were toward Attorney General William Barr the other day.

      Face it DEMONRATS are DIRT. Not ONE of the lying, scheming, totally unprincipled bastards has a single redeeming feature.

      And as far as I'm concerned the RINO's, whose name is Legion, are even worse.

  5. CNN had an article headlined to the effect that Harris was the "perfect pick" for Biden to make as VP. The article advises that the reason for their description as "perfect pick" is that she is highly skilled at making verbal takedowns against Trump which sound very educated and "elegant," which use highly "loaded" words and phrases, and therefor are devastating in a campaign against him.

    Nothing about her policies and fitness to govern, merely that she's a wonderful attack dog and can (supposedly) help Biden win.

    1. An excellent point, thank you! DemonRats have no ambition larger or more important than continuing to make a maniacal attempt to RUIN Donald Trump's chances of getting re-elected, just as they've tried every trick in the book RUIN first his CANDIDACY, then his PRESIDENCY –– and the life and career of nearly everyone Mr. Trump chose to AID both his CAMPAIGN and then his tenure in office.

      DUMBMOCKRATS are _________ [fill in any unflattering, insulting, condemnatory, pejorative term that comes to mind]

    2. How could those filthy bustards DAR to say that, when the Wuhan Plague is the ONLY factor that stopped THE most vibrant, exuberant, thriving, enormously successful economic policy in our nation's entire history?

      Even STATISTICS, which I normally distrust and despise, bear that out.

      DemonRats do very little but relentlessly INSULT our INTELLIGENCE.

  8. It's interesting... for years we've seen Veeps from both parties subjugate their views and policy positions to whatever their president wants. Why do we believe that this year, in this election, that won't happen?

    Of course Harris is left of center, she's a Dem. But if she is the leftist Commie socialist the GOP and others are painting her as, how to explain the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Karen Bass and others? Harris is nowhere near as left/progressive as those two, or some of the others Biden could have picked for the job.

    In CA, she was a tough on crime Atty General, who angered the left with her mostly tough prosecutions.

    At the end of the day, a VP has no policies. Their job and their policies are all about supporting POTUS and working to make him or her look good. Just as Pence has admirably done for Trump.

    She's left, no doubt. But not as far as the right wants to believe.

    1. She's Left on social issues, but not on economics. That's why they picked her. She's a global corporatist, just like Sleepy Joe. The last thing that the DNC wants is an AOC on the loose... which is why they only gave her a 60 second pre-recorded spot at the Convention and denied press credentials to the Young Turks.

    2. She is now mouthing extremely left positions, whether she believes them or not.

    3. Ronna MacDaniel is a terrible judge of voting strategies. The sooner Trump dumps her and her Mitt-loving Never-Trump advising friends, the better for DJT's re-election chances. There's a GAPING split in the DNC between the neoprogs like Biden & Kamala and the HARD Left like AOC and the Justice Democrats, and painting Kamala as a hard-Left "one of their own" is a BAD STRATEGY. Let HER pay to sell THAT message!

    4. Wall Street LOVES Kamala/Joe. The hard left HATES Wall Street. So the obvious strategy is to push Biden/Harris WALL STREET globalism vs Trump's MAIN STREET populism and peel off all those Bernie populists.

  10. Let's skip the folderol and keep it simple lest we drown in the plethora of verbiage

    ANYTHING and ANYONE who encourages, supports and looks in any way favorably on DEMOCRATS and their sickening, increasingly insane, blatantly hypocritical policies is simply WRONG.

    All such persons should be IGNORED, summarly DISMISSED, and targeted for political ANNIHILATION.

  11. Kamala is off to a terrible start insulting voters by blaming this pandemic job losses on Trump administration, the simple reply besides asking if she's still smoking would be to say;

  15. No matter what you think of Donald Trump, the man, his often boorish behavior, and he may even be outrageous at times, but as the President of the United States, he has done more for the American people, especially minorities, than any other president since Abraham Lincoln.

    1. from the NY Times:

      A former F.B.I. lawyer intends to plead guilty to falsifying a document as part of a deal with prosecutors conducting their own criminal inquiry of the Russia investigation, according to three people familiar with the case. The lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, 38, who was assigned to the Russia investigation, plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency. Mr. Clinesmith’s lawyers said he made a mistake while trying to clarify facts for a colleague...

    3. Small potatoes. Barr and Durham should be out for blood. The scheming architects of the Russia hoax and anyone who aided an abetted them should shackled, manacled, thrown into jail, then put on trial for treason, an offense that warrants the death penalty.

      Delete
    4. Joe... read a little further in that article and you see this...

      "But prosecutors did not reveal any evidence in charging documents that showed Mr. Clinesmith’s actions were part of any broader conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump. And the Justice Department’s independent inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, has found that law enforcement officials had sufficient reason to open the Russia investigation, known inside the F.B.I. as Crossfire Hurricane, and found no evidence that they acted with political bias.

      Maybe Trevor is right... this is small potatoes.

    5. Lol! No bias? What did Clinesmith text upon existing the FBI? "Viva le Resistance..."

    6. ...and what was the coverup? That Carter Page had been a CIA Asset from 2008-15 and an FBI Informant against Russian spies after that...

    7. I’m just devastated,” Clinesmith texted to Moyer shortly after Trump won the presidential election in November of 2016. “Plus, my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff,” Clinesmith wrote.

      “Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” Moyer later asked Clinesmith, ostensibly referring to Clinesmith’s plan to remain at the FBI after Trump’s inauguration.

      “Hell no,” Clinesmith responded. “Viva le resistance.”

    8. The only question remaining, will Clinesmith suffice as sacrificial scapegoat for the coup makers...

  20. Nominating Kamala Harris, a black descendent of Jamaican former slave owner Hamilton Brown for the office of Vice President was genius on the part of Joe Biden.

    And now the Black "Uncle Tom" movement is liberating still more black "magical-negro" Democrats from the Democrat Slave plantation, where blacks were only allowed to be present to magically exonerate Democrat politicians from charges of racism, and to make /shake down corporate CEOs for "Racism-charge" insurance policies.

    2. In a USA Survey, black support for Biden went from 83% before Harris was picked to 80% after she was named while for Trump it went from 7% before she was named to 15% after. Apparently black people are not enamored of her either. Can Biden win if 15% of blacks vote for Trump?
