(Tea Party PAC) – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, attempted to attack Vice President Mike Pence during Wednesday evening’s VP debate, citing a report which the Pentagon has called “uncorroborated” to try and paint the administration as not caring about military troops.
The report in question concerns rumors of bounties put on our soldiers by Russia. Unfortunately for Harris, her attack backfired in a very big way. You’d think that the left would stop trying to paint the president up as a hater of the U.S. military, especially since Biden himself was caught on video calling our troops “stupid bastards.”
“Take — and this is –this is very important when you want to talk about who is the current commander-in-chief and what they care about and what they don’t care about, public reporting that Russia had bounties on the heads of American soldiers,” Harris said.
“And you know what a bounty is? It’s somebody puts a price on your head and they will pay it if you are killed. And Donald Trump had talked at least six times to Vladimir Putin and never brought up the subject. Joe Biden would never do that,” she said.
How condescending is Harris? She assumes that the vast majority of Americans are too stupid to know what a bounty is and then goes on to “momsplain” everything to us as if we’re all her ignorant children. This woman is supremely unlikable. It’s like someone said, “no one is more unlikable than Hillary Clinton,” and Harris said, “Hold my beer.”
Harris was referring to reporting from the New York Times in July 2020 where anonymous “officials” claimed that the U.S. government had received intelligence that Russia had put bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan and did nothing about it.
The Pentagon disputed the report in an on-the-record statement. Chief Pentagon Spokesperson Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement:
The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports.
Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan – and around the world – most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats.
In addition, Central Command Commander Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie has also said on-the-record that by September, the intelligence had still not been corroborated. He told NBC News in an interview, “It just has not been proved to a level of certainty that satisfies me.”
“We continue to look for that evidence,” he added. “I just haven’t seen it yet. But … it’s not a closed issue.”
Despite the intelligence not being corroborated, Democrats have continued to use the report repeatedly throughout the presidential campaign to attack Trump.
Pence disputed that the president does not care about the military.
“My son is a captain in the United States Marine Corps. My son-in-law is deployed in the United States Navy. I can assure all of you with sons and daughters serving in our military that President Donald Trump not only respects but reveres all of those who served in our armed forces, and any suggestion otherwise is ridiculous,” he responded.
The radical left is so desperate to defeat President Trump in November they are attempting to co-opt any sort of narrative they can to try and twist it against him and convince folks on the fence to support Joe Biden and oust the president from office.
However, something the left doesn’t understand is that to those of us in middle America, there’s nothing more important than knowing the facts, being in possession of the honest truth. Which is why they continue to fail in their attempts to transform our nation into a socialist country.
