(Tea Party PAC) – There’s a lot of stuff out on the Internet right now about Sen. Kamala Harris that’s getting talked about by all of the pundits and media outlets on both sides of the political spectrum, especially since she’s been announced as former Vice President Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate.
And while there’s a lot of important information we should know about this woman, the one thing that is probably at the top of the list is that whenever she is given even the tiniest crumb of power, she will abuse it for personal gain.
This very subject is part of a classic piece posted up recently by Breitbart that tackles the various ways in which Harris has used the political power she’s been entrusted with by the people of California to further her own career and agenda.
Check out the details from Breitbart:
In introducing Harris on Wednesday, former Vice President Joe Biden said that she was a fighter for the “little guy.” But he gave no examples — because there are none.
There are plenty of examples of Harris fighting against the “little guy.”
The most egregious example is her malicious prosecution of filmmaker and anti-abortion activist David Daleiden, who made undercover videos of Planned Parenthood employees discussing how to make money from the sale of tissue from aborted fetuses.
It was the first and only time undercover journalists had been prosecuted under an obscure California law.
Already, it’s pretty obvious that Harris doesn’t care about having a free press helping the people of this country to hold elected officials accountable and to expose the evil within dreadful organizations like Planned Parenthood. That lets you know right off the bat that Harris is just an easily controlled puppet who will do the bidding of her Democratic Party masters so long as it benefits her career.
Worse, Harris reportedly acted after meeting with Planned Parenthood, which was apparently upset that Daleiden had caught their employees in the act. The abortion group also wanted the videos suppressed. Daleiden says that when the state executed its search warrant on his home, its purpose was to seize unpublished videos to make sure they were never released.
Harris, he said, colluded with a powerful left-wing interest group to abuse the First Amendment and punish him for exposing it.
So much for fighting for the “little guy.”
Along with this, how can you claim to be fighting for the “little guy” when you uphold the scourge of abortion? Murdering our most vulnerable and defenseless citizens who are being oppressed and having their most basic, fundamental right denied seems like something the left should be all about. But instead, folks like Harris encourage the practice of abortion by continuing to let it exist.
Harris also abused the powers of her office to target a political opponent. It was part of a pattern. She attempted to force Americans for Prosperity, a 501(c)4 group supported by the Koch brothers, to reveal its donors, though they are already known to the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Harris tried to do at the state level what the IRS scandal had done throughout the country: bully and intimidate a conservative group.
A district judge agreed that allowing Harris to accept the donor lists would allow “harassment” and could suppress the group’s constitutionally-protected liberties. That judgment was overturned by the Ninth Circuit, and the case is pending before the Supreme Court.
What remains noteworthy about the case is Harris’s behavior: singling out a conservative, pro-business group for legal intimidation. Ironically, the 501(c)4 rules protected the NAACP during the civil rights struggle.
Once she arrived in the U.S. Senate, Harris continued her abusive behavior. She developed a habit of badgering witnesses and then turning her questioning into viral YouTube videos to raise campaign cash.
Occasionally, this tactic backfired, as when she grilled Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing about whether he had discussed the Russia “collusion” investigation. Laughably, she had no evidence; even the left-wing California media panned her performance.
Harris is a total radical through and through. She has zero interest in working with folks across the political aisle, and she’s not been shy about that fact either. There’s no record of any sort of pragmatism on her part. This means you can expect her to go as far-left as her overlords command her should Biden win in November.
When Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) took Harris to task at the second Democratic debate last year, it was not just because Harris had taken a tough approach to marijuana offenders, but because she had laughed later about having smoked pot herself.
The attack resonated because it was an example of Harris abusing her power. She was willing to put thousands of people in jail for breaking a law she did not believe in herself because doing so would burnish her political credentials.
Another basis for claiming Harris is a “moderate” is that she is a creation of the Democratic Party political establishment. She got her start in politics from her association with California State Assembly leader and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. She won her Senate seat in 2016 with the help of the Bay Area liberal gentry and national Democratic leaders, including then-President Barack Obama. After the 2016 election, Harris tapped into Hillary Clinton’s donor network.
But the “woke” Democratic Party establishment is no longer politically “moderate.”
As Shadi Hamid noted in the Wall Street Journal in 2018, it was the Democratic establishment that became most politically extreme after Donald Trump won in 2016, embracing “Russia collusion” conspiracy theories and the like.
The establishment — of both parties — will adopt any outward political stance to protect its power. And Kamala Harris has a career-long habit of abusing hers.
We’re not getting a balanced ticket with Biden-Harris. We’re getting a pair of extremely malleable individuals who will no doubt be used by the radical left-wing to push America more and more toward socialism in drastic ways, possibly leading to the death of the democratic-republic we love so much and that has become a beacon of hope for the world.
If we want to preserve our nation, we must ensure Trump is victorious in November. Period.
