Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has been attempting to rehabilitate her record as a progressive while running for the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020, but her tough-on-crime inclinations can still be seen in her rhetoric.
Harris told the NAACP Convention’s presidential candidate forum on Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s intervention into the case of A$AP Rocky, who was recently locked up in Sweden on assault charges, is an abuse of his presidential authority.
“As president, how would you handle the A$AP Rocky case in Sweden?” moderator April Ryan asked Harris. “How will you use your power to make sure misuse of power doesn’t happen in cases like this, and that this case would stay in the State Department and not go to the White House?”
“There’s no question that this White House is, has been playing politics with his role of leadership, and it has to end. This president, I just want to back up for a second, so you know I have fought predators,” Harris responded before launching into a series of attacks against Trump.
“So you’re saying this is another piece on the rap sheet of Donald Trump, this misuse of power in the A$AP Rocky case?” Ryan asked in a follow-up question to Harris.
“Yes,” Harris replied.
Later on, Harris attempted to recite song lyrics from the late James Brown in order to win over the audience and prove her authenticity.
“All right, say it loud,” Ryan said to Harris.
“Yes,” Harris said again, then adding, “And I’m black and I’m proud!”
“Wait say that again, I didn’t hear you. What did you say?” Ryan asked.
“Say it loud, I’m black and I’m proud!” Harris responded.
While Harris may be black and proud, she was once very proud of her record of throwing black people into jail for long periods of time as she made her name as a tough-on-crime prosecutor and attorney general.
“Remember, “non-violent” does not mean “unimportant.” It’s important to fight all crime. Drug crimes in particular exact a terrible toll and rob people young and old of hope,” Harris wrote in “Smart on Crime,” her book that was published in 2009.
“And remember that many of these offenders are small players in the underground business of drug sales and trafficking, and therefore are closely linked with gangs, violence, and gun crimes,” she continued.
“We are sending three times as many offenders to state prison than we were in 2001, three years before I took office,” Harris wrote about her time as San Francisco attorney general. “We also increased conviction rates for drug sellers.”
President Trump passed criminal justice reform in his first term while being committed to helping African-Americans like A$AP Rocky and LiAngelo Ball when they are abused by foreign governments. Trump is helping to undo the damage caused by heavy-handed bureaucrats like Harris, who have fed the prison-industrial complex to fuel their own political ambitions.
Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday
The hearing will be held on November 30th.
The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.
Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.”
Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.
“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.”
Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.
A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
