Much has been said thus far about Kamala Harris since she became Joe Biden’s running mate. The NYTimes insists that she’s a “pragmatic moderate.” That’s one of the most laughable statements the NYTimes has ever made. Former Clintonista George Stephanopoulos insists that “Kamala Harris comes from the middle of the road, moderate wing of the Democratic Party.” GovTrack.us said Sen. Harris “ranked most liberal compared to all senators.”

Those statements and ratings perfectly fit Sen. Harris. Sen. Harris is a Democrat who is whoever she needs to be at that moment in time. When she took on Biden on bussing, she portrayed herself as an oppressed civil rights leader. When she announced that she favored Medicare-for-All in terms of health care, Harris identified herself as Bernie Sanders’ moderate sister. When she questioned Ron Vitiello during his confirmation hearing, she asked him “Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels?” Check out this sickening video of Harris’s interrogation of Vitiello:

Implicit within Sen. Harris’s questioning is the insinuation that enforcing the immigration laws of this nation is just as evil as the KKK threatening African-Americans simply because of their skin color. This is as disgusting a display of bigotry as Jesse Jackson calling NYC Hymietown because of NYC’s large Jewish population.

One thing that’s certain about who Sen. Harris is is that she’s a lefty in terms of illegal immigration. Meghan McCain twisted Harris into a pretzel in this interview:

Harris: I am not for decriminalizing or not having any consequences … Let me just be really clear. We have to have a secure border but I am in favor of saying that we are not going to treat people who are not documented as criminals. That is correct.

BTW, Sen. Harris’s position on illegal immigration was shared by all 10 Democrats then vying for the Democrats’ presidential nomination:

Two things are noteworthy about this. First, it’s indisputable that decriminalizing illegal immigration and supplying illegal immigrants with taxpayer-funded health care are firmly within the mainstream of the Democratic Party. Next, it’s equally indisputable that most people outside the Democrat Party don’t agree with the Democrats’ position.

Therefore, the NYTimes is right in saying that Sen. Harris is “a pragmatic moderate” if the sole criteria for that is the unanimous position of the Democrats’ presidential candidates. It isn’t difficult to make the indisputable case, though, that the center of the Democrat Party is far outside the mainstream of American politics. Joe Biden adopted Bernie Sanders’ unity manifesto. For the past 2 election cycles, Bernie has campaigned on leading a revolution. Leading a revolution while being a moderate is a tricky thing to pull off.

If there’s anything that’s true about Kamala Harris, it’s that she’s whoever she needs to be whenever she needs to abandon her principals. This article highlights the fact that she isn’t a principled person:

Harris beefed up her #MeToo credentials later, making it clear she doesn’t just believe women accusing Republicans of sexual assault. All women had to be believed, including those who ­accused prominent Democrats. At a campaign event in Nevada in April 2019, Harris discussed the allegations against Biden, declaring of the accusers: “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.”

So Biden is an abuser — ­because women have accused him, and all women should be believed. Right?

So what has changed since then? Sexual assault and harassment are some of the most serious ­allegations that can be leveled against a man. Harris now needs to account for why she is comfortable joining an abuser’s 2020 ticket. This isn’t some ­debate-stage policy disagreement she can just walk back, claiming she has “evolved.”

Yesterday, Harris said that the case against President Trump is an open-and-shut case. The case against Sen. Harris’s authenticity is an open-and-shut case, too. That’s because Harris’s authenticity is the kind that can only be faked. Phony Kamala is the perfect nickname for her.
