U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), once believed to be a front-runner to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, has officially bowed out of the race today.
“I don’t think anyone on my team was expecting this,” one staffer told HuffPo, who indicated that the news was shocking despite Harris dropping like a stone in the polls.
Harris sent the following email out to her staffers today:
I’m not a billionaire. I can’t fund my own campaign. And as the campaign has gone on, it’s become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete.
In good faith, I can’t tell you, my supporters and volunteers, that I have a path forward if I don’t believe I do.
So, to you my supporters, it is with deep regret ― but also with deep gratitude ― that I am suspending my campaign today.
Harris was near the top of the polls before a contentious exchange at the second presidential debate with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii wounded her, and she was never able to recover her lost momentum as a result.
“She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said about Harris at the debate over the summer.
Mommy Tulsi’s take-down of Harris can be seen here:
Harris attempted to clap back at Gabbard during a presidential debate last month in a futile attempt to regain lost momentum for her campaign.
“I think that it’s unfortunate that we have someone on this stage that is attempting to be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States, who during the Obama administration spent four years full time on Fox News criticizing President Obama,” Harris said about Gabbard.
“When Donald Trump was elected, not even sworn in, she buddied up to Steve Bannon to get a meeting with Donald Trump in the Trump Tower,” Harris added, which prompted Gabbard to call the attacks “ridiculous.”
“What Senator Harris is doing is unfortunately continuing to traffic in lies and smears and innuendos because she cannot challenge the substance of the argument that I’m making,” Gabbard responded.
Gabbard added that Harris’ vitriol toward her “only makes me guess that she will as president continue the status quo, continue the Bush-Clinton-Trump foreign policy of regime change wars, which is deeply destructive.”
Harris’ presidential ambitions have been in shambles for quite some time, which prompted a staffer who resigned to trash the campaign last week.
Former Harris staffer Kelly Mehlenbacher said that she had “never seen an organisation treat its staff so poorly … I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership. The treatment of our staff over the last two weeks was the final straw.”
The Harris campaign has mercifully come to an end, and Gabbard – who has drawn the ire of her own party’s establishment for her quixotic views – deserves the credit for sinking the vehemently anti-white, anti-constitutional candidate.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
