Will the Real Kamala Harris Please Stand Up?

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator

Politics forces Harris to portray a character called “Kamala Harris.” The genuine article possesses a beautiful genetic tapestry of humanity who, like everyone else, contains a mass of contradictions — Does she pay reparations for her slave-owning ancestors or receive them on behalf of her enslaved forebears? — and reorientations, e.g., she wanted to preserve private health insurance before she wanted to abolish it before she wanted to preserve it, she played a tough prosecutor before morphing into a BLM marcher, etc. People aren’t as black-and-white as politics has become.

Dear Mr. President:

 Americans elected you because you are a fighter for the American people and American values.

David Franke: Socrates, Galileo, and Today’s Covid-19 Authorities

At every turn, we are admonished to accept the dictates of the Authorities regarding the Covid-19 epidemic. It can be intimidating to fight back when their official wisdom consumes every pixel of the Washington Post and the New York Times, of CNN and MSNBC and all the rest.  All the more important, then, to put our current Authorities into historical context.  We need to remind ourselves how the Authorities and Wise Men of any era can easily become the fools and villains of history.

Democrats Must Cancel Democrat Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd Of West Virginia

Senator Robert C. Byrd was not just a racist, but a leader among racists. He was an active member and officer of the Ku Klux Klan, one of the most viciously violent and terroristic hate-groups America has known. And his racism continued long after he left the formal organization of the Ku Klux Klan. Bethany College has already said it will remove the name of Robert C. Byrd, from the health center on its campus. If Democrats are not complete hypocrites on race, they will join us in demanding the federal government and the state government of West Virginia follow suit.

David Franke: The Second Wave of the Fear Campaign

We have been inundated, 24/7, with TV, print, and online warnings that the United States is entering a disastrous “second wave” of the Covid-19 pandemic. What we’re really witnessing, however, is a second wave of the relentless fear campaign to keep the American people obedient to their state and local dictators, and to keep the economy prostate so the Democrats can win the trifecta—the White House, Senate, and House—in November.

Conservative Leaders: History Matters, Protect America’s Monuments

Over 100 leaders of the conservative movement have joined together to issue a “memo to the movement” applauding President Trump’s “Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence” and decrying the vandalism and assaults on revered American monuments, including the Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial.

David Franke: The Cultural Revolution Comes to America

The riots and demonstrations are about revolution, not white racism or justice for law-abiding blacks or real history. As with the Maoist Red Guards in China’s Cultural Revolution, it is about destroying the “four olds” in America–old customs, old culture, old habits, and old ideas. So let’s call this fight what it really is—a Maoist-style revolution—and then let Americans take sides, just as they did in 1776. I know which side I’m on.

Wall Street A New Front In The Cold War With Red China

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the President use his executive authority to prohibit companies owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, the Red Chinese government, the People’s Liberation Army of China and other Chinese military and intelligence entities from accessing U.S. capital markets.

Beijing Biden Attacks Trump On China

According to research posted on the BeijingBiden.com website, since 1979, Joe Biden has been a key supporter and enabler of Communist China; a fact he often brags about and highlights in interviews and speeches, seemingly oblivious to the economic damage his positions have inflicted on America and American Workers. And now, Beijing Biden has the gall to attack Donald Trump as being weak on China.

End The Sweetheart Deal Joe Biden Gave The Chinese Communists

Since 2013, through a sweetheart deal negotiated by then-Vice President Joe Biden, Chinese companies have been allowed to participate in U.S. stock and bond exchanges without having to fully comply with the same Sarbanes-Oxley Act accounting practices and risk disclosure required of American companies. Now the Committee on the Present Danger: China has launched a campaign demanding the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board:cancel the agreement.

The #PresidentCuomo fantasy

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The only way any Democrat could seriously hope for Cuomo as their presidential nominee would be a convention in which delegates threw out Biden, and Sanders, and started from scratch. And that would obliterate the fundamental principle of the candidate selection process: The nominee should be selected by the party's voters. More than anything else, the Cuomo boomlet is a reflection of misgivings about Biden. At age 77, he has lost a step. Now, they are seeing him struggle to project any sense of leadership in the crisis. They know the rank-and-file Democrats chose Biden in the primary field, but not necessarily with any great enthusiasm.

The Mysterious Rise, Fall, and Rise of Joe Biden

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Democrats may have dodged the Sanders socialist bullet and united the party behind Biden, but how will Biden beat Trump? In 2020 we will hear a lot from candidate Biden — but less frequently will we see him in person, speaking to or mixing with crowds. His running mate will be advertised as the future of the Democratic Party, with the subtext of soon becoming president. And the 24/7 message won’t be collusion or impeachment, but the coronavirus. There are problems with all of these strategies. But for now, the Democratic Party has gone from ruin in late February to hope in late March — even as gaffe-prone Joe Biden just stayed the same all along.

Bernie Sanders must consider coronavirus in exit strategy

Editors, Washington Examiner

It’s difficult to see what exactly Sanders is accomplishing at this point by remaining in the race. His campaigns typically feed off of large rallies, but he has not been able to hold them. Sanders isn’t able to mobilize his army of young supporters to knock on doors, and is instead having to resort to phones only. Sanders’s message doesn’t have much chance of getting through a news cycle in which Americans are focused on reports about the daily progress of the fight against coronavirus. It’s difficult to see how Sanders, with no path to the nomination, urges people to turn out to vote for him at a time when health experts are urging bans on large gatherings.

Joe Biden: A 'centrist' moves further left

Byron York, Washington Examiner

It's indisputable how the Democratic Party has moved left in recent years. Now, the party is about to choose a standard-bearer, in the person of former Vice President Joe Biden, and what has become clear is that Biden has not only shifted left with his party over the years, he has taken significant leftward steps in recent weeks. Is Biden undergoing some sort of late-in-life reassessment of his beliefs? Perhaps, but it appears more likely his shifts came for baldly political reasons. Biden's positions on three big issues changed virtually overnight to fit the political requirements of the late stages of the 2020 Democratic primary. And all involved a move to the left.

Joe Biden's Coming Disappearing Act

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

From the almost-certain-to-be-final debate on until at least the Democratic convention in July, and most likely beyond, Biden will substantially disappear. Joe could well use the coronavirus as an excuse for his disappearance, so that he can hide from public view and scrutiny as much as possible. The Democrats and the media will do their best to help with this. The last thing they want is to have the implosion of their candidate who is, to use a politically correct term, intellectually challenged. And they all know that’s a possibility. He'll be as inaccessible as possible without arousing too much suspicion. Biden is already giving speeches that could almost be called minimalist.

Bye-bye, Bernie

Editors, Washington Examiner

As in other states, Michigan's younger voters overwhelmingly voted for Sanders. And it wasn’t because of his youthful charisma, but because of his message. Those who were too young to remember the collapse of failed statist experiments during the end of the Cold War and who had a different set of economic experiences, are much more amenable to socialist ideology than their older counterparts. It’s possible that as the younger generation dominates the electorate and those with a memory of history age out, some future candidate could succeed where Sanders failed. So, as we get ready to bid farewell to the Sanders candidacy, we do so knowing that the fight against American socialism will go on.

Joe Biden Is China’s Choice for President

The Democratic Party has always been weak on national security when it comes to China. But at least some prominent Democrats loudly criticized Beijing for its atrocious human-rights record and its theft of American jobs, well before Donald Trump helped form a new national consensus on China. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have been longstanding China trade hawks, even socialist Bernie Sanders has been a reliable critic. And Joe Biden? Well, he’s on China’s side — not yours.

Race-hustler Joe Biden

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Democrats have eliminated both Kamala Harris and Cory Booker from the nomination contest this year. The only remaining viable candidates are two septuagenarian white men. One is Joe Biden and the other is Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders, a socialist whom Democrats would rather see lose the election than take over their party. Suddenly, Mr. Biden is not so racist. Both Ms. Harris and Mr. Booker have endorsed him. According to Ms. Harris, Mr. Biden “has served our country with dignity and we need him now more than ever. I will do everything in my power to help elect him the next president of the United States.” So much for hobnobbing with segregationists and thwarting desegregation.

The Dems Are Right. Americans Find Annoying Liberal Women Very Annoying.

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

So, when Warren and others insinuated, as she reached the end of her trail of phony beers and quit the race, that the reason for her total defeat was that Americans would not vote for a woman, she was partially right. Americans would not vote for a woman like her because she is a very, very annoying woman. The same is true of Stumbles McMyturn. We dislike her too because she is annoying, and it’s a very specifically female kind of annoying. No, they reminded Americans of their ex-wives, including American women and American men like me who don’t have ex-wives. It’s not misogyny to not want to deal with their personal psychodramas and tedious nagging. It’s sanity preservation.

Biden and Bernie to Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia: Drop Dead

Stephen Moore, CNS News

They would put 300,000 Pennsylvanians and nearly 200,000 Ohioans in unemployment lines. One has to wonder if the professors, CEOs and social activists would be all-in on the green agenda if it were their jobs that would be wiped out. Too often, political activists measure their commitment to the environment by how many other people they are willing to let lose their jobs. Climate change radicalism pits prosperity for the middle class against the elite and the millennial snowflakes who are protected from the real effects of the climate change hysteria. This movement exposes the fault line of the modern Democratic Party: Does it care more about the green activists or blue-collar workers?
