In Her Own Words: Kamala Harris Endorses Harsh Penalties for Non-Violent Offenders

Turns out Harris’ record is as anti-progressive as Joe Biden’s.

Published

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-NY) is attempting to reinvent herself as a progressive after spending years as a tough-on-crime prosecutor who reveled in throwing minorities in jail for non-violent offenses.

Harris wrote “Smart on Crime” in 2009 where she re-affirmed her commitment to punishing non-violent crimes, indicating that she has not learned any lessons from the many abuses that have arisen from the federal war on drugs.

“Remember, “non-violent” does not mean “unimportant.” It’s important to fight all crime. Drug crimes in particular exact a terrible toll and rob people young and old of hope,” Harris wrote in her book.

“And remember that many of these offenders are small players in the underground business of drug sales and trafficking, and therefore are closely linked with gangs, violence, and gun crimes,” she continued.

Harris then reaffirmed her support for charging and arresting all non-violent offenders.

“While we need to arrest and make all offenders accountable for their crimes, we are finding ways to transform the status quo approach that results in offense-arrest-jail-offense-arrest-jail—a pattern I sometimes call “synchronized drowning”—into a new path of accountability and reintegration that builds stronger, safer communities,” Harris added.

In the era of Black Lives Matter, Harris’ pro-police sentiments put her out of step with the mainstream of the Democratic Party.

“Virtually all law-abiding citizens feel safer when they see officers walking a beat,” Harris wrote. “This is as true in economically poor areas as in wealthy ones.”

She denied any assertion that law enforcement is racist, which is now accepted as a self-evident truth among radicalized liberals.

“There is a widely held notion that poor communities, particularly poor African-American and Latino communities, consider law enforcement the enemy and that they do not want police officers in their neighborhoods,” she wrote writes. “In fact, the opposite is true. Both my experience and scientific surveys reflect this fact again and again. … I can state categorically that economically poor people want and support law enforcement.”

Harris even boasted about how many people her tough-on-crime policies helped send to jail in San Francisco.

“We are sending three times as many offenders to state prison than we were in 2001, three years before I took office,” Harris wrote about her time as the city’s attorney general. “We also increased conviction rates for drug sellers.”

Harris is currently targeting former Vice President Joe Biden for his decades-long record as a career politician of supporting policies to eviscerate civil liberties and target racial minorities.

“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me,” Harris said, as she hammered Biden on opposing busing integration in the 1970s during a recent Democratic Party presidential debate.

But Harris has skeletons in her own closet that she must account for. Her tough-on-crime record that may ultimately prevent her from securing the Democratic Party presidential nomination, as more liberal ares demanding an extreme option than ever before.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
