Kamala Harris

In South Carolina, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden in black and white

Byron York, Washington Examiner

It is still too early to see a definitive pattern in South Carolina. Back in 2007 and 2008, Hillary Clinton was leading in the Democratic primary race here, but when black voters realized Barack Obama was the real deal, not a protest or show horse candidate, they flocked to support him. That could, perhaps, be a model for Harris, in the Obama role, and Biden, in the Clinton role. "Hillary was popular early in 2008, but Obama devastated her in the last month," said David Woodard. "Now, the old Hillary Clinton base of liberals who don't fear UC Berkeley roots might be a potential group for Harris to rally. If that happens, and Harris wins here, it could be the end of Biden."

Can This Be True? Trump Ties With ‘Unnamed Socialist’

In its matchups of Trump versus Democratic candidates, a recent poll asked people to choose between the president and an unnamed “Democratic candidate who you regard as a socialist.” The result: A tie. Trump, 46%; Socialist, 46%. Among likely voters, the split was Trump 49%, unnamed socialist 43%.

Far-Left Billionaire Whacko Tom Steyer Enters Democrat Primary

The Democratic Party wisemen in Washington can’t be happy with Tom Steyer’s announcement because it will be that much harder for them to move to the center for the November election with Steyer pushing the other Democrats even further to the Left on impeachment, global warming and abortion, while ramping-up the anti-free market rhetoric.

Eric Swalwell Nukes His Campaign For President

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the Far-Left California Democrat Congressman who famously reminded gun owners that the government has nuclear weapons should they choose to resist his gun confiscation schemes, is abandoning his presidential campaign. But that doesn’t mean Democrats will abandon their plans to try to confiscate your guns should they ever obtain the power to do so.

Democrats Hate It When Peace Breaks Out

Trump as a successful peacemaker on the Korean Peninsula does not help the Democrats defeat him in the 2020 election, so the Democrats and their media allies have suddenly become adverse to peace with North Korea and prefer what was known during the Cold War as brinksmanship or a reversion to the failed policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Democrats Plan Votes On Slave Reparations Bill

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044), tell your Representative you agree with Barack Obama, slave reparations are unconstitutional on their face, and demand that your Representative vote NO on H.R. 40 or any other slave reparations bill that comes before the House.

FLASH: Alabama Life Bill Signed By Governor Kay Ivey

FLASH UPDATE: Alabama Governor Kay Ivey did not take the six days she had to sign the bill enacting the nation's most principled pro-life legislation. Now that the bill is law, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood say they'll sue, and a court battle is just what the bill's supporters want. Bill author Rep. Terri Collins earlier said that she expects a legal challenge and hopes the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold protections for the unborn.

The Democrats’ Mean Girls Problem

Few voters outside college campuses and the liberal Twitterverse are attracted to angry white feminists, sneering liberal arrogance, smug elite condescension, Hillary Clinton-style flip-floppers and scary socialist commissars – which pretty well sums-up the females in the Democratic field.

Bernie Brings In $18.2 Million Driving Democrats Further Left

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is leading the Democrat presidential field in fundraising and grassroots organizing and pushing the Democrats further Left. Having booked $18.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, Sanders is almost guaranteed to take his Socialist campaign to every Democrat primary and debate.

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Little Climate Change Monsters Turn On Democrats

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, they cannot move fast enough to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, think, say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Democrat Presidential Candidates To Provide Comic Relief This Week

his week’s Senate debate on the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” is going to be comical, but never forget that behind the zany ideas is the same cold iron hand of Socialist authoritarianism that has killed millions every place and every time it has been tried.

Run Beto, Run

The Democrat presidential primary field is expanding and morphing at a pace rivaling that of the Blob in the eponymous 1958 Steve McQueen sci-fi movie, with Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke about to be the latest Democrat to be absorbed into its formless bulk.

Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Platform Raises $6 Million Crushes Other Democrats

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders raised $6 million in the first 24 hours after he announced his campaign for President. These donors are not attracted by his charismatic good looks – which are totally absent – nor are they attracted by his oratorical skills, again absent, what they are attracted to are his Socialist policies and his record of fighting for them.

Remodeling America

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

We are watching a rare revolutionary phase in American politics as leftists have devoured Democrats. Progressives ate liberals. And progressives are now being devoured by socialists, and soon no doubt socialists will be eaten by hard leftists, Communists, anarchists, and nihilists. In such revolutionary logic, perhaps only Antifa will emerge as pure. The result is that the 2020 election will offer the starkest choices in the past 50 years, far eclipsing the radical contrasts of 1972.

What I Said about Kamala Harris Was an Understatement

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Calling Harris "shrill" has nothing to do with her sex and everything to do with her behavior and politics.  The Kavanaugh hearings revealed who she is -- a vindictive, hypocritical opportunist and past master of the politics of personal destruction. This is a woman who, despite her having been district attorney of San Francisco, would have indeed sunk Judge Kavanaugh "by any means necessary" without the slightest need for evidence or the rule of law.  Even more, she did her best to destroy him for unproven allegations while his daughters were sitting there --how feminist!

Trump Stuffs Democrats Harris And Feinstein On Ninth Circuit Judges

President Trump’s decision to nominate a slate of solidly conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit vacancies is another demonstration of Trump’s acumen in recognizing the nexus between politics, policy and the judiciary and the Senate is about to change its rules to end the Democrat obstruction that has stalled many of Trump's best conservative nominees.

Kamala Harris, 'Populist'?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Harris's proposals aren't even "liberal," let alone radical. They're just "currently popular among Democrats." President Trump has started talking about "radical Democrats" opposing him, but if you think the "news" is fair and balanced, you'd have no idea why he would use such a term. That's why people don't — and shouldn't — trust the news media as if they were a nonpartisan, disinterested moderator in our politics. Instead, they're desperately trying to disguise the obvious. The Democrats are careening to the hard left.

Rush Makes Half Of A Great Point

Rush made the point that, to many voters, government's ability to keep spending is like water in the faucet - it's assumed it will always be there. But the part he left out is that one of the main reasons that is so is because under Speakers Boehner and Ryan Republicans stopped talking about fiscal restraint and started spending like Democrats.

Are Democratic Voters About to Break Bad?

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

Harris’ record shows she was a “progressive” prosecutor in that she used her powerful public positions to promote a highly partisan, left-wing political agenda. She wasn’t known for her concern about the misuse of government power or the rights of the downtrodden when she had the power to do something about those problems, but she did promote the causes of liberal interest groups such as Planned Parenthood and California’s public-employee unions. Harris champions the raw exertion of government power, which might make her the odds-on favorite in the party of big government.
