Senator Kamala Harris Should Probably Think Before She Tweets

Harris DESTROYS Obama’s Legacy In One Tweet, Thought She Was Hitting Trump

Kamala Harris

As originally seen on Great American Politics by John Salvatore:

2020 Democrat presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) needs to think before she tweets.

While Harris clearly thought she was bashing President Trump, it’s evident she had no clue what she was doing – because she just annihilated a part of Obama’s legacy.

What Kamala did was say it is “inexcusable” for sexual assaults to occur on military bases.

Fair enough. However…

Enter Harris:

 

The problem?

This study was conducted in 2014.

Who was president in 2014?

From Time:

Assaults most often occurred on training bases in the Army and Marine Corps. Both of the services were found to have installations where Rand estimated that in fiscal year 2014 there were more than 500 sexual assaults of men and women: Fort Hood, Fort Bragg, Fort Lewis, Fort Campbell, Fort Bliss, and Camp Lejeune.

The study found that sexual assault risk for women in the Air Force was lower than the average for women in other services, but the top three bases where it did most often occur were all focused on undergraduate pilot training.

Military installations in the Washington, D.C.-region, such as the Pentagon, were reportedly the safest places to work across all the branches.

Back to the drawing board, Kamala!

Harris has made it clear that the sexual assault allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh do not need to be proven.

In other words, Kavanaugh is already guilty in her eyes and cannot be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

From Daily Beast:

There’s a distinction between what we need to do as members of the Senate—we have a constitutional responsibility to advise and consent—versus the role of a criminal court, which would be to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt,” Harris, who only joined the committee in January, said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “Because the consequence of that is going to prison.”

Harris, who served as San Francisco’s district attorney and California’s attorney general over a 25-year career as a prosecutor, specialized in child sexual-assault cases early in her career. Later, she focused her efforts on curbing sexual misconduct on college campuses. In 2016, when she was serving as attorney general, she slammed the judge who sentenced Brock Turner, the Stanford swimmer who was convicted of sexual assault, to just six months behind bars. She said the victim was denied “dignity.”

Harris then referred to Kavanaugh as “this guy”:

“In this situation, let’s be clear about this, this is about whether or not this guy should get a promotion. That’s the inquiry. And we do not have the burden of proving this beyond a reasonable doubt,” added Harris, who said this week that she believes Ford’s allegations. “This is about whether he has the judgment, the character, and the suitability to serve a lifetime appointment on the highest court. Which is a court that has, as its purpose and responsibility, to be the purveyor of justice.”

Harris’ no-holds-barred attitude both as a prosecutor and as a politician has launched her into the 2020 presidential spotlight, and she has rarely missed opportunities to put herself on the map as a suitable challenger to President Donald Trump. A Democratic aide familiar with the planning said the senator is expected to “take no prisoners” when or if she gets the chance to interrogate Kavanaugh again.”

Harris didn’t have the best showing at the Kavanaugh hearings, per Daily Wire:

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is known for carrying a copy of the Constitution with him, a fact that did not escape Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) when she questioned him during the hearings on his nomination to the Supreme Court, as she dismissively referred to the Constitution as “that book that you carry.”

Harris stated:

I’m going to ask you about unenumerated rights. So, you gave a speech praising former Justice Rehnquist dissent in Rhodes, there’s been much discussion about that, and you wrote, celebrating his success, that “success in stemming the free-wheeling tide creation of unenumerated rights,” that is what you said in celebration of Justice Rehnquist. So “unenumerated rights” is a phrase that lawyers use, but I want to make clear what we’re talking about: it means rights that are protected by the Constitution even if they’re not specifically mentioned in the Constitution.

Pointing at Kavanaugh’s table, she patronized, “So they’re not in that book that you carry.”

Former Trump Chief of Staff Flips, is Cooperating with Jan 6th Committee

Say WHAT?!

Published

on

The work of the January 6th select committee continues to astound and astonish of late, with potential witness after potential witness finding themselves in untenable positions.  Stuck between a rock and a contempt charge.

The latest to reverse course and decide to cooperate is none other than former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who this week signaled his willingness to work with the Democratically-led fishing expedition.

 Mark Meadows, who served as former President Donald Trump’s last chief of staff and was involved in efforts to challenge the 2020 election results, is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the panel, said in a statement that Meadows has been “engaging” with the panel through his lawyer, providing records to the committee “and will soon appear for an initial deposition.”

Meadows was subpoenaed by the committee in late September for records and testimony regarding his and Trump’s activities before and during the Capitol riot.

The news was rather unexpected:

“Mr. Meadows has been engaging with the Select Committee through his attorney. He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition,” the committee said in a statement Tuesday. “The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive. The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

His lawyer initially said Meadows wouldn’t cooperate with the committee because of Trump’s plans to assert executive privilege, an argument dismissed by the committee, whose members will vote this week to hold former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark in contempt of Congress for ignoring the panel’s subpoenas.

“As we have from the beginning, we continue to work with the Select Committee and its staff to see if we can reach an accommodation that does not require Mr. Meadows to waive Executive Privilege or to forfeit the long-standing position that senior White House aides cannot be compelled to testify before Congress,” Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger said in a statement Tuesday. “We appreciate the Select Committee’s openness to receiving voluntary responses on non-privileged topics.”

The committee has been widely criticized on the right side of the aisle, with many considering their investigation to be nothing more than a re-do of Trump’s second impeachment, this time with a Democratic majority deciding the outcome.

Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Reveals Donald Trump’s Trips on ‘Lolita Express’

WHOA!

Published

on

For years, nay, decades, rumors have persisted about just what sort of evil empire Jeffrey Epstein was sitting on the throne of.

Sure, there were the widely-accepted truths:  Epstein was plucking underage women from corners of society and grooming them to be sex slaves.  This much is very much undisputed.

Where it gets tricky is his little black book.  You see, Epstein was wildly influential as well, not only for his vast fortune but for the possibility that he had secretly videotaped his well-known clients fornicating with said children.  This sort of kompromat is worth its weight in gold.

And among all these rumors was the plane.

Dubbed the “Lolita Express” for all of the sexually-charged reasons that one could suggest, its flight log read like a who’s who of modern high society.

Now, in the trial of Epstein’s #2 in command, Ghislaine Maxwell, a revelation has arrived about former President Donald Trump.

DONALD Trump, Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton all flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, the paedo’s former pilot told the Ghislaine Maxwell trial.

The two former US Presidents and the Duke of York were mentioned as Maxwell faces six charges of sex trafficking and abuse over her alleged role as Epstein’s “madam”.

And he was sure:

Lawrence Visoski, who is testifying for the prosecution, was quizzed during cross examination about passengers aboard Epstein’s distinctive Gulf Stream plane.

He confirmed Trump, Andrew and Clinton all flew on the jet – along with other big names such as Hollywood stars Kevin Spacey & Chris Tucker, violinist Itzhak Perlman, and US Senators John Glenn & George Mitchell.

And he also told the court he never saw any sexual activity on the flight, or any underage girls without their parents.

Epstein is long known to have courted the rich and famous as he hid in plain sight – including with flights on his plane.

“I certainly remember President Trump, but not many people associated with him,” the pilot told the trial.

While Trump’s acquaintance with Epstein was long known, the fact that this pilot puts him on the “Lolita Express” is what’s noteworthy here.
