VIDEO: Kamala Harris Laughs Off Impeachment Then Changes Demeanor After She Realizes Cameras are Rolling

Harris is disingenuous even for a Democrat.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the failed 2020 Democrat presidential contender, was caught on camera laughing off the impeachment farce only to completely change her demeanor on a dime when realized she was being recorded.

“This is a solemn, serious moment,” Harris said to an MSNBC reporter just moments after being caught on video smiling and laughing. “These are the most serious, ehh, charges ever brought in the history of our country against a President.”

Media analyst Mark Dice posted the embarrassing video of this serial deceiver and failed presidential candidate on his Twitter account:

Democrats are talking about the “solemn” and “serious” nature of the Senate trial while simultaneously treating the proceedings like a sporting event of sorts. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was handing out souvenir pens with her name on them as the Senate received articles of impeachment from the House on Wednesday.

“Nancy Pelosi’s souvenir pens served up on silver platters to sign the sham articles of impeachment,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham wrote in a social media post. “She was so somber as she gave them away to people like prizes.”

“You know what you hand out pens for? Accomplishments. Like, say, signing a historic trade deal with China,” Republican National Committee spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington said, referencing the news of Trump’s Phase I trade deal with China.

Harris is among the most disingenuous members of the Senate. Her presidential ambitions failed spectacularly after Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) drew attention to her incredible hypocrisy on the debate stage:

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…

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 is lying about the nature of President Trump’s impeachment trial, just like she lied about her criminal justice record during her presidential campaign.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

on

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
