“I think Mayor Schaaf is doing exactly what’s in the best interest of her community, and I support that 100%.”
It’s clear that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) wants to be president. What’s not clear is in what country she wants to president.
She wants to be president of a country with no borders, with a Supreme Court that bases its decisions on “feelings” rather than law, with few (preferably no?) gun rights for citizens, with “free” college, with government-run (i.e. single payer) healthcare, with severely restricted speech, with unrestricted abortion funded by taxpayers. To be fair to Harris, this is the same imaginary country in which all Democrat presidential hopefuls aspire to be president.
Harris’ ongoing, if not yet announced, 2020 presidential campaign is currently focused on
flouting foiling our nation’s immigration laws.
Harris has come to the defense of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) who has come under fire—and under federal law enforcement scrutiny—for her warning to illegal aliens of impending ICE raids.

In order to make her “turn back the clock” fallacy work, Harris intentionally misrepresented what Attorney General Jeff Sessions said about California’s war on federal immigration law.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) appeared on MSNBC’s All In with host Chris Hayes Wednesday night to discuss Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech on California ignoring the nation’s immigration laws and likening it to nullification. Harris warned that it’s not a good idea for Sessions to bring up Civil War history and said his credibility is “pretty shot” on those issues.
Hayes prompted the comments from Harris when he brought up Sessions’ reference to “slave states in nullification and secession” in denouncing California for evading federal immigration law. (Editor’s note: Sessions actually said: ‘There is no nullification. There is no secession.’ He then invited “any doubters to Gettysburg, and to the graves of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln.” There was no abject overtures to slavery and reconstruction.)
“Attorney General Sessions compared California’s actions quite intentionally I think, to be actions of the slave states in nullification and secession and the Civil War. What do you say to that?” Hayes asked.
“Indeed, indeed he did. Listen, as far as I’m concerned Jeff Sessions should be advised and I’ll advise him right now that — that it is — it — it’s a bad idea for him to start talking about anything to do with the history of slavery or reconstruction or the Civil War in the United States. His credibility is pretty much shot on those issues. But on the topic at hand Chris, I think Jerry Brown is absolutely right,” Harris responded.
Harris’ presidential aspirations in the United States may be hobbled by her ignorance of things like the U. S. Constitution, presidential pardons, the Bill of Rights, American history, and the federal government’s role in immigration law and enforcement.
Here’s wishing her the best of luck in running for president of her fantasy-land, though.DONATE
