Just when you think you have Donald Trump figured out and can put him in a box, he zigs zags and makes you stop and wonder what in the hell is going on. This time it is with people that allegedly he hates and wants them all to die.

Except that he also wants to there shorten prison sentences or eliminate them altogether. That has made Kamal Harris very mad being she put a LOT of people away in her time as a prosecutor in California.

From Fox News

 

President Trump took a rare swipe at 2020 Democratic hopeful Kamala Harris on Saturday, criticizing the California senator for boycotting a South Carolina criminal justice forum in protest of the group giving an award to him.

“Badly failing presidential candidate @KamalaHarris will not go to a very wonderful largely African American event today because yesterday I received a major award, at the same event, for being able to produce & sign into law major Criminal Justice Reform legislation, which will greatly help the African American community (and all other communities), and which was unable to get done in past administrations despite a tremendous desire for it,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

The president’s tweets came after he received the Bipartisan Justice Award from the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center for his efforts to pass the First Step Act, which grants early release to thousands of nonviolent offenders who are currently serving time in federal prisons.

Trump has by and large not mentioned Kamala and the other dwarfs running on the Democratic side. He has had a lot of fun picking on Joe and Bernie and the fake Indian and left it at that. However, Kamala who once was considered the shining star of this primary season has never fully recovered from the shot that Tulsi Gabbard landed on her in the Detroit debate about her lock up record.

I will admit that when Trump met with Kim Kardashian about commuting the sentence of a lady that had clearly served way more time than she should have, I thought it was a mere publicity stunt of two reality T.V. stars meeting. That has proven to not be the case.

When Van Jones showed up at CPAC and praised Trump and conservatives for this I knew something positive was happening. Van Jones Praises Conservatives on Criminal Justice Reform: ‘You Are Stealing My Issue’

Kamala probably was thinking that her law & order cred was going to get her major props and so far it has been a dud. Her at first instinct of boycotting this event and trying to look holier than thou does not look like it will work and might not even last a full news cycle. Stunts like this are meant to raise your profile and so far it looks like it has sent her into deeper muck. Now that she has changed her mind she looks even more indecisive.

There are only 99 days left until the Iowa caucuses. Kamala better get in front as many people as possible or her campaign is going to be dead on arrival before next February.

Trump Wins Bipartisan Justice Award, Kamala Harris Throws a Fit

On Friday, President Donald Trump received the Bipartisan Justice Award for his work on criminal justice reform from the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center.

The bipartisan group consists of Republicans, Democrats and Independents whose primary focus is on criminal justice reform.

Trump spoke after receiving the award at a historically black college, Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina about the work he and a bipartisan group had done on reform with the First Step Act that he championed and passed in December. The Act focused on gaining release for thousands of non-violent offenders from federal prisons and provided programs to bring down recidivism. One of the men who gained release through the Act, Matthew Charles, was there to present Trump with the award.

Others who had benefitted from the reform also spoke including Tanesha Bannister.

Bannister spoke about how the Act not only freed thousands of people, but he helped rehabilitate and increase opportunities to work and reintegrate back into society.

According to WLTX 19:

Trump also said his policies on trade, taxes, and as he phrased it, “putting America first,” have contributed to a better job market for those released from prison and millions of others.

“We’re acting, not talking,” he said.

He’s now moving to work on the Second Step Act, to do even more to rehab people back into society.

But he was attacked by someone who does a lot of talking but not a lot of action for positive change.

The president’s speech kicked off a weekend forum on criminal justice that included 2020 Democratic candidates.

Kamala Harris was to be among the candidates in attendance but she decided to play politics instead and announced that she would boycott the event because of Trump’s presence. “I said I wouldn’t come because I couldn’t believe that Donald Trump would be given an award as it relates to criminal justice reform,” Harris complained.

Imagine boycotting a specifically bipartisan event because she’s so nakedly political and trying to pull a stunt to score points. Actions like this perhaps explain why she’s so low in the polls now. The more people know about her, the less they care for her. She’s wallowing around 5 recent.

She later flip-flopped and changed her mind, saying she would be attending because the college removed the 20/20 Bipartisan Center as the sponsor of the forum.

So she’s attacking a bipartisan group for daring to give Trump an award?

Meanwhile she has an incredibly bad reputation in relation to criminal justice, so much so that many people on the left have nicknamed her “Kamala the Cop” and would never think of voting for her. It’s not because she’s locked people up in the interests of justice, it’s because they don’t feel her actions have been consistent with justice.

Kamala Harris throws a hissy fit, withdraws from South Carolina forum

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-Harris Kamala Harris throws a hissy fit, withdraws from South Carolina forum The Blog Second Step Presidential Justice Forum President Trump kamala harris https://hotair.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Kamala-Harris.jpg hbcu FIRST STEP Act Criminal Justice Reform Central Park Five Benedict College 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center

On Friday, the campaign of presidential candidate Kamala Harris announced the senator will skip a forum on criminal justice reform in South Carolina this weekend. Her reason for that decision was the equivalent of an adult woman throwing a toddler-style temper tantrum. She is angry that the organization holding the weekend forum honored President Trump with an award Friday.

It is really as simple as that. Kamala Harris, a sitting U.S. senator was so triggered by the decision to honor the President of the United States by black folks in South Carolina that she is taking the low road. She is disrespectfully dishonoring her acceptance of the invitation to participate in the forum at Benedict College, a historically black college. Is she not familiar with the fact that good manners are very important in the south? Backing out at the last minute because a bipartisan collegiate group acted in a bipartisan manner and acknowledged Trump’s leadership in criminal justice reform legislation is not a good look. Friday’s event with the president was sponsored by the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center. Bipartisan is in the name, for heaven’s sake.

“As the only candidate who attended an HBCU, I know the importance that these spaces hold for young Black Americans,” Harris, who was slated to participate in Second Step Presidential Justice Forum at Benedict College on Saturday, said in a statement.

The California senator cited the fact that only a limited number of students from the school were allowed to attend Trump’s remarks as the final straw.

“Today, when it became clear Donald Trump would receive an award after decades of celebrating mass incarceration, pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans, rolling back police accountability measures and racist behavior that puts people’s lives at risk, and then learned all but ten Benedict students are excluded from participating, I cannot in good faith be complicit in papering over his record,” Harris said.

Harris, the candidate of Indian and Jamaican heritage who frequently plays the race card, trashed the president without offering up any proof of her allegations. That’s common with lazy candidates who just repeat basic talking points on the campaign trail but it is insulting to the people who decided to honor the president. She is calling them “complicit in papering over his record” and she, the moral better, will not do that. The bad Orange Man is a racist, you know.

Is Harris’ reference to “pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans” a reference to the Central Park Five case? It’s made a comeback during the Trump presidency and I wrote about the Netflix version of the story for NewsBusters this year. In that piece, there is a quote from one of the mothers – “They need to keep that bigot off tv, is what they need to do,” the mother angrily responds. “That devil wants to kill my son.” “That devil” references private citizen Donald Trump who was being interviewed by a New York reporter. Trump paid for a full-page ad that ran in several newspapers at the time which called for the return of the death penalty. He was referencing the rise in crime the city was experiencing. The Netflix version conveniently twists it to the disadvantage of Trump. The teens wouldn’t have been eligible for the death penalty because they were minors at the time of the crime.

Kamala Harris has won this award herself. That’s the kicker. She has no reason to be bitter, she’s already been given the same award, as has the junior senator from South Carolina, Tim Scott. It looks like she’s petty and vindictive. Not all of America buys into the trope that Donald Trump is a racist. Is she just looking for publicity for a failing campaign? According to Real Clear Politics, as I write this Saturday morning, Harris is at 7% in South Carolina. That’s fourth-place behind Biden, Warren, and Sanders. Biden has a 19.5% lead.

If the concern of Harris is the number of students allowed to attend, well, a local newspaper reports that half of the tickets were reserved for Trump and half for locals. Ten spots were reserved for students of the college. Remember, the event was to honor the president – not a student or professor or a local leader in the community. The theatre in which the event was held has a capacity of 275 people and it is reported to have been packed.

Harris is taking her campaign and moving on. She said she plans to hold a roundtable discussion on criminal justice elsewhere in the state. Maybe she doesn’t understand how badly this reflects on her character and her ability to lead an entire nation, not just those who think as she does. How can she be the president of all Americans if she can’t handle a decision made by a bipartisan group of people to give an award to someone she dislikes?

Trump’s interest in criminal justice reform puts a pin in the argument that partisans like Kamala Harris like to advance – if they aren’t saying Trump is a liar, they are saying he is a racist. The fact is that Trump treats everyone the same whether she likes it or not. No one is out of bounds from a Trump attack. Or from Trump’s praises. Trump was honored by African-Americans when he was a private citizen and when he was a reality show star. Trump’s support of law and order is not new. He can claim ownership of signing into law some criminal justice reform and it’s a thorn in Kamala’s side. Trump signed into law bipartisan legislation that included easing harsh minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders, as well as other changes.

President Trump responded on Twitter:

Many of Kamala’s competitors will participate in the forum over the course of the weekend.

Other Democratic presidential candidates still taking part in the forum at Benedict over the next two days are former Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Housing Secretary Julián Castro, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

The South Carolina primary is February 29.

Home State Blues: Kamala Harris Gets More Devastating News About Her Campaign in California

No matter where 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris goes, she faces an uphill battle.

Nationally, she’s polling in a distant 5th place. In Iowa, where she vowed to “f**king move” in order to win over Democrats in the crucial caucus state, her campaign is cratering.

She’s not doing any better in South Carolina, which has a large percentage of black Democratic voters, nor in New Hampshire.

But it’s her home state of California that perhaps more than any other state is showing her the writing on the wall.

Over a month ago an Emerson University survey showed her in 5th place in California behind Andrew Yang.

Unfortunately for Harris, her numbers in there among Democratic primary voters have not gotten any better over time:

Less than five months before Californians vote in the 2020 presidential primary, a new Change Research poll for KQED shows U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris losing ground to the front-runners, Sens. Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts and Vermont’s Bernie Sanders.

The poll, taken after last week’s Democratic candidate debate, finds Warren is the top choice of 28% of primary voters, followed by Sanders at 24% and former Vice President Joe Biden at 19%.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is fourth with 9% followed by Harris at 8%. The October survey puts Harris 20 percentage points behind Sen. Warren, compared with a 14 percentage point gap in our September poll.

The poll also shows Harris trailing badly among female voters and Hispanic voters:

By gender, Warren is the top choice of female voters with 31% support, followed by Sanders with 23% and Biden at 21%. Buttigieg and Harris are the choice of 8% and 7% of women respectively.
[…]
Sen. Sanders is the favorite of Latino voters with 28% support, followed by Warren and Biden (22% each), Harris (7%) and Buttigieg (6%). The only Latino candidate, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, is the choice of just 1% of Latino voters in California.

Harris is in decent shape with black Democrats according to the poll (16%), but she still lags behind Biden (30%) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (20%).

As I’ve said before, I believe she’s sticking around at this point as an audition of sorts for vice presidential consideration, but considering she’s in bad shape across all key demographics, I’m not sure how much good she’d do in terms of the female/black vote for Biden or Sanders should they become the nominee. And the possibility of Warren picking another woman as her running mate is very low.

Of course, general elections are much different than primaries so there’s still a chance she could end up as the eventual nominee’s running mate. But as far as her chances go for the nomination itself, it’s all over but the crying at this point, especially when you consider the fact that no recent candidate for president has gone on to be their party’s nominee without winning their home state.

Payback? Kamala Harris Surrogate Floated the “Tulsi is a Russian Asset” Accusation Before Hillary Clinton Did

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., speaks in a Democratic presidential primary debate hosted by CNN/New York Times at Otterbein University, Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019, in Westerville, Ohio. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

The political world was rocked last week when it was reported that failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called 2020 presidential contender Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) a “Russian asset” along with 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Clinton’s provocative comments, for which she provided no evidence, were made during a podcast with former Obama senior adviser David Plouffe. Gabbard obliterated Clinton in response on Twitter and then later in interviews.

Something that wasn’t widely reported last week, however, is that another Democrat was floating the “Tulsi is a Russian asset” accusation before Hillary was.

During last Tuesday night’s presidential debate, Gabbard mentioned a “CNN commentator” who that morning “said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia.”

Watch:

That CNN commentator she was talking about is Bakari Sellers, a former South Carolina state representative. Sellers is also a vocal supporter and surrogate for the presidential campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), which was reported back in April.

On CNN’s New Day the morning of the debate, here’s what Sellers said about Gabbard:

“I firmly believe that Tulsi Gabbard stands on that stage and is the antithesis to what the other 11 individuals stand for, especially when it comes to issues such as foreign policy.”

“There is no question, there is no question that Tulsi Gabbard, of all the 12, is a puppet for the Russian government,” said Sellers, a lawyer and former member of the South Carolina House of Representatives.

“[T]here is a chance that Tulsi is not just working for the United States,” he also said, adding, “That’s not just an allegation.” Sellers, however, did not produce any evidence to back up his claim.

Watch the segment below, courtesy of MRC-TV:

The panel appeared momentarily stunned. But as you can see from the transcript, New Day hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman provided little to no pushback on Sellers’ shocking remarks.

When Gabbard made her comments about him at the debate, I’m not sure if she knew he was a surrogate for the Harris campaign. Would have been VERY interesting to see her ask Harris point blank on the stage if she agreed with him. It could have been Tulsi vs. Kamala from the second debate all over again.

Which brings me to my main question: Did Harris know Sellers was going to make this “point” the day of the debate? Watch her non-answer Friday to a journalist’s question about Clinton’s accusations against Gabbard:

“I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion.” And then “I think that there is nothing else to say.” What is that even supposed to mean?

If I didn’t know any better I’d say Sellers’ comments were planned. There is a lot of bad blood between the Gabbard and Harris camps that stems even further back than just what happened at the July debate. It would not surprise me at all to find out this was calculated. Politicians – Democrats especially – are notorious for launching nasty broadsides at their political opposition via surrogates but then feigning ignorance or innocence when directly asked about it later.

Sen. Harris has proved time and time again she is not above this tactic herself. I can’t prove it, but my gut instinct tells me she was aware of what Sellers would accuse Gabbard of during that segment.

I need 800k or im going away. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)

Don’t threaten us dude.

Julian Castro, who has NO RELATION to Fidel or Raul in Cuba other than in the general outlook of how government should meddle in every aspect of your life, needs your help. His campaign is running short on funds being he has spent a lot of money doing….well, I’m not really sure of what he has been doing.

According to Buzzfeed

Presidential candidate Julián Castro said on Monday that he will have to drop out of the Democratic primary if his campaign doesn’t raise $800,000 in the next 10 days.

In an email to supporters, Castro said he will not have the resources to continue campaigning if he can’t raise the funds by the end of October.

“The truth is, for our campaign, these debates have offered our only guaranteed opportunity to share my vision with the American people. If I can’t make the next debate stage, we cannot sustain a campaign that can make it to Iowa in February,” Castro said in the email. “My presidential campaign is in dire need of financial resources to keep going.”

Castro’s campaign has very little cash on hand compared to most of his competition, according to the most recent FEC filings. His campaign, which raised $3,495,406 and spent $3,960,970.81 last quarter, had $672,333 on hand as of the end of September.

That’s rough.

According to the latest Real Politics Polling  for Iowa, Castro is polling at…. HE IS NOT EVEN LISTED.

How can you be asking for cash to make it to Iowa and they are not even showing you UNDERWATER in the latest polling? That is super impressive except for a winning campaign it is not. Castro spent 3.9 million last quarter while raising 3.4 million. I’m guessing that there are a lot of fancy meals on that spreadsheet and not too many value meals purchases at McDonald’s.

While I am 100% in favor of Americans donating to any and all political causes and candidates they see fit, I would humbly suggest spending money on other things also if you are on the bubble about donating to the Presidential campaign of someone who is not running so hot.

Here are some suggestions…

*Buying a ticket on the next Titanic voyage next year. I mean, it can’t happen twice in a row, can it?

*Purchase a “My Pillow” and see if it is really that comfy. Also, email me and let me know if it is. I have been on the bubble for a while now about purchasing one.

*Do GOAT Yoga. I’m not going to do it so you might as well.

Of course, you can donate to #TeamCastro or any candidate you want. If you feel Julio is worth a couple of bucks to extend his time doing whatever he has been doing to be polling at zip in Iowa, knock it out. Maybe donate to all of them. Maybe tweet at the President and see if he could donate to Castro just for the twitter trolling wave it would create.

Good Luck Mr. Castro. Shame that a distant relative of yours that is not really a relative but has the same last name as you is not still alive. I’m sure he would have kicked in a buck or two.

Did Hillary Just Chicken Out Of An Event In D.C. With Tulsi Gabbard?

Ahh, poor Hillary. Seems that the former star to be in the Democratic party has taken so much flack from her latest boof up ( that didn’t have anything to do with Bill) she is feeling a bit off. A week in advance.

Hillary, of course, landed in some hot water last week when she said on a podcast that she thought that Tulsi Gabbard and Clinton’s 2016 opponent, Jill Stein, were propped up by the Russians. That didn’t sit well with both ladies and they let Hilly have it on twitter and in standalone interviews.

Well, this coming Friday, Hillary had the chance to hit the reset button on this at a women’s forum on something and something else and she decided to cancel. Maybe because Tulsi was also going to be there?

According to the New York Post

A face-to-face confrontation between Hillary Clinton and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard set for next Friday was averted when Clinton backed out of the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, DC.

Clinton aides cited a scheduling conflict when she announced her withdrawal from a speaking slot at the annual event. One insider told Slate that Clinton dropped out to protest the inclusion of former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson on the schedule.

But Gabbard is on the bill, too — and Clinton’s pull-out came just hours after the former Secretary of State on Friday accused the Hawaii Democrat of being the “favorite of the Russians” on a podcast.

Oh, snap.

She had a prior engagement? Like what, getting her crying towel from 2016 dry cleaned? Have the house staff do it for cripes sake.

Contrary to what some people on the interwebs are speculating this is the end of Hillary. She is not secretly propping up Tulsi for a Hillary/Gabbard 2020 ticket. She is not going to try and hijack the party nomination from the sleepy former V.P. and the faux Indian. She is not secretly plotting anything at least in regard to the dumb comment she made.

This was not a strategy but stupidity. All politicians open their mouths a bit too wide sometimes. That is all this is. I will admit to being surprised that she made this error but just like athletes, politicians can get past their prime and need to go away from the game.

Will Bill & Hill still try to influence things from behind the scenes? Sure.

However, they are not the favorite former first couple right now. Democrats much prefer Barrack Obama and Michelle to anything to do with the Clintons. That “Evening with Bill And Hillary” was a pure disaster traveling the country with lousy ticket sales. They couldn’t fill those venues with people if they paid them which they practically had to do.

No one is going to listen to a two-time loser on the national stage tell ya how to get things done.

All Hillary did here gave some more free press to Gabbard and so far she has capitalized on it. She is not going to be on the national ticket though so she will have a really fun experience to recall when all this is said and done.

So chill out Clinton conspiracy buffs, you still have the Jeffery Epstein thing to chase.

Stunning Data from Trump’s Texas Rally Shows American Voters are Smarter than Democrats Think

President Donald Trump arrives to speak at a campaign rally, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019, in Manchester, N.H. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

 

On Friday morning, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale released some very surprising date from the Dallas, TX rally held the night before. First, their data showed that 53,985 voters had attended. The stadium had a maximum capacity of 20,000. The overflow crowd remained outside watching on a giant television screen.

Next, 12% of those who attended indicated they had not voted in the last four elections. Can you imagine if this group were to actually go to the polls next year and cast their ballot for Trump?

The third data point showed that. The significance of this is monumental. I wonder what the percentage of Republicans attending Democratic rallies is. I imagine it would be low to nil.

This tells us that a certain percentage of Democrats are looking at the weak field of candidates and are searching for an alternative. I would guess many of them are turned off by the party’s sharp left turn. It might surprise them to hear that not every Democrat shares their enthusiasm for a socialist America.

Rush Limbaugh discussed this data on his radio show on Friday. He said, “Folks, if this is right — if this is even close — the Democrats can’t win anything with that amount of defection, if that’s really percolating.”

Finally, Parscale finds that 11% of them were Latino. The implications of such a strong Hispanic presence lays to waste the Democratic talking point that Trump’s insistence on building a border wall and taking a tougher stand against illegal immigration is resonating. Admittedly, close to 40% of the state’s population is Hispanic compared to about 18% for the general U.S. population. Still, an 11% Hispanic turnout to a Trump rally is impressive. The Hispanic vote will have a big impact on the results in 2020.

Parscale’s comment on this data was encouraging. He wrote, “These are winning numbers that will help win #FourMoreYears for @realDonaldTrump! We continue to outperform 2016.”

I’ve watched the last two Trump rallies on television and I’ve concluded:

1. There is no way that any of the 2020 Democratic candidates could ever attract the crowd sizes that Trump regularly receives at his rallies.

2. Nor would supporters line up 24-48 hours to hear any of them speak.

3. No one in the current field could generate the level of excitement Trump creates routinely at these events.

4. President Trump connects with attendees on an emotional level.

5. Trump himself loves holding rallies and the crowd feels it, knows it.

Limbaugh can’t get over the energy of these rallies. He told listeners:

It’s just a guy at a podium and a microphone. It’s not like you’ve got Mick Jagger in there strumming and running around singing with the guitars and drums being played.

I mean, it’s just one guy, and yet this kind of charismatic excitement… I’m telling you that there isn’t anybody anywhere in the Democrat Party who could muster anything like that, and yet we are told to believe that the country hates Donald Trump. We’re told to believe the country wants Trump gone. We’re told to believe the country’s embarrassed as hell and regret really regretful of the decision they made back in 2016 — and this is a giant disconnect.

He also thinks Trump will win Texas. He said:

Now, this is Texas. I’ll tell you something about Texas. The Democrats will tell anybody who will listen that they’re gonna win Texas. They’re not gonna win Texas, but they’ve got the Drive-Bys putting it out there as a possibility. They’re doing it on the basis of a lot of people having left — a lot of liberals leaving California, a lot of liberals leaving the Northeast. And then of course the illegal aliens crossing the border. They will find a way to get them to vote. The counties all along the Texas-Mexico border are turning blue. So the Democrats in the media are out there saying, “Hey, Texas is in play.” Well, it’s not in play.

Aside from excitement, Trump offers hope, a strong economic record, a far more conservative and fair judiciary, strength against the unrelenting attacks from the left, transparency (like his tweeting or not, we know where he stands), and he acts as a bulwark against socialism.

The legacy of the current Democrats in Congress will be one of hatred, injustice, secrecy, lies, anger, bending the rules and norms to advance their toxic agenda and trying to gaslight American voters.

When asked what specifically Trump has done that rises to the level of impeachment, Democrats have little of substance to offer. The 2020 candidates were questioned about their positions on this issue at CNN’s presidential nomination debate held on Tuesday night. Sen. Kamala Harris answered,  “The reality of it is that I don’t really think this impeachment process is going to take very long, because, as a former prosecutor, I know a confession when I see it! And he did it in plain sight. He has given us the evidence, and he tried to cover it up, putting it in that special server. This will not take very long.”

Harris knows a confession when she sees it? He tried to cover it up by putting it on a special server? After two of Trump’s early conversations with world leaders were leaked to the press, he was forced to take extra precautions. She knows this, but since she can’t point to any valid reason for his impeachment, she was forced to use a debunked talking point.

Later in the debate, Harris said, “When I think about where we are right now, in 2020 I do believe justice is on the ballot.”

If justice is truly on the ballot in 2020, then Trump will win in a landslide.

Harris aide to Buzzfeed editor: Reporter’s tweet is “whiteness manifest”

Westlake Legal Group Kamala-Harris Harris aide to Buzzfeed editor: Reporter’s tweet is “whiteness manifest” twitter The Blog President Trump Katherine Miller kamala harris Elizabeth Warren Buzzfeed Ben Smith 2020 Democrat candidates

Let’s be honest –Kamala Harris’ campaign is fading fast. She had her fifteen minutes of publicity after the Democrat debate in June when she called out Joe Biden for working with politicians with histories mired in segregation. She sold t-shirts and fundraised off speaking truth to power, or something.

Now, though, she’s polling behind Mayor Pete in the second tier of candidates at Rear Clear Politics. She’s falling, not rising in the polls. Even calling for the elimination of President Trump from Twitter hasn’t made the splash she hoped it would. Harris ran right into a buzzsaw when she called out Elizabeth Warren on the debate stage Tuesday night for not siding with her demand to de-platform Trump. Elizabeth played the role of an adult by saying no, she didn’t agree that Trump’s Twitter account should be suspended. She’s focused on replacing him in the White House. “I don’t just want to push Trump off Twitter, I want to push him out of the White House.”

Kamala Harris exposed herself as the authoritarian she is and that doesn’t bode well as a glimpse into how she would govern as president. As a lawyer and as a former top law enforcement officer in California, shouldn’t she be aware of the First Amendment in our country? It seems pretty basic to me.

A spat has popped up on Twitter between an aide to Kamala Harris and BuzzFeed. Katherine Miller, a reporter for BuzzFeed, tweeted out a little truth to power herself, so to speak, in the aftermath of the debate. An aide to Harris read the tweet and immediately proceeded to the pearl-clutching state. The aide turned to BuzzFeed’s Editor-in-Chief, Ben Smith, to complain. No, really.

Katherine Miller tweeted, “Hard to know if last night harmed or helped Warren, but think all can come together and agree a debate highlight was Warren telling Kamala Harris no about banning Trump from Twitter then just continuing with her point in the manner of shrugging off a Greenpeace clipboard person.” I would have put that in tweet form but Miller deleted it.

Smith put the exchange out in his BuzzFeed newsletter. Mediaite has the exchange.

“hey i have talked to her directly a few times when she’s tweeted out stuff like this, and i told her i was glad she deleted this tweet, but this kind of stuff is just a really horrible look for you guys. frankly, it’s whiteness manifest,” the aide proclaimed. “if kamala shrugged off a warren critique of how she wasn’t with her on Facebook, we’d get raked and she would get lauded as taking on corporate power. the blithe mockery here of kamala, while lauding warren’s style, is just not up to par. i say this to you just to be super frank and because i really like your guys’ work, the platform, and your reporters. we work well together across the board. but this is a bit problematic.”

Imagine being so desperate to create a stir in the press that a campaign aide has to object to a reporter’s tweet and then call the reporter’s editor-in-chief a racist. “It’s whiteness manifest.” What? Perpetual victimhood isn’t a good look for a female candidate trying to project strength. She is woman, hear her whine.

Ben Smith responded exactly as he should have responded. “Do you seriously not have real problems? This text makes me think you are totally, totally unready for an actual presidential campaign.”

Reporters agreed with Smith’s response.

I noted the reference from one reporter to the aide’s passive-aggressive text to Smith.

Katherine Miller hasn’t changed her mind, though she deleted the original tweet. Good.

It was funny. Twitter cop isn’t a good look for any presidential candidate.

Twitter: World leaders are not above our policies, with exceptions

Westlake Legal Group TwitterSymbolw-Darkside715 Twitter: World leaders are not above our policies, with exceptions twitter The Blog Social Media President Trump kamala harris First Amendment Elizabeth Warren Censorship

Last June our Twitter overlords announced that labeling tweets from government officials that break rules against bullying and abusive behavior will soon begin. At the time it was seen as a veiled attempt toward censoring President Trump’s tweets. After the announcement was made, Twitter’s stock took a 1% hit and ended the day down 1.4%.

Twitter’s new policy is to apply to verified accounts of government officials, representatives or candidates for a government position who have more than 100,000 followers. Trump critics frequently complain about his tweets and many users call for him to be suspended from using the platform. Responding to leftist demands, in January 2018 Twitter executives explained that such elimination of world leaders’ tweets isn’t a good idea.

The rule marks a shift in Twitter’s response to how it handles tweets from world leaders. In January 2018, the company said it was concerned about blocking public access to information from world leaders, even if they seem controversial.

“Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate,” Twitter wrote at the time. “It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”

“We review Tweets by leaders within the political context that defines them, and enforce our rules accordingly,” Twitter said in the 2018 post.

While protecting the First Amendment rights of President Trump, Twitter made it clear that it will be harder to share messages that violate policies. There will be no more simple re-tweets of them. There will be the ability to retweet with a comment, though. However, questions remained about what exactly abuses of policy are in the Twitterverse.

Tuesday a blog post was posted by Twitter to clarify “enforceable offenses” that could result in tweets being removed.

“We want to make it clear today that the accounts of world leaders are not above our policies entirely,” the company wrote in a blog post. “This post seeks to provide clear insight into how we address content from world leaders on Twitter today, and will serve as our statement on the decisions we make, rather than our teams providing feedback on individual Tweets and decisions.”

Among the behaviors that could force Twitter to take action include promoting terrorism, direct threats of violence against an individual, sharing private information or intimate photos, engaging in child sexual exploitation and encouraging or promoting self-harm, the company said.

Straddling the fence, Twitter claims it will err on the side of keeping the tweets up, but with a flag so that viewers make their own decision if the tweet is seen or not. The company realizes it is in unchartered waters.

With critical elections and shifting political dynamics around the world, we recognize that we’re operating in an increasingly complex and polarized political culture. These are constantly evolving challenges and we’ll keep our policies and approach under advisement, particularly as we learn more about the relationship between Tweets from world leaders and the potential for offline harm.

This post seeks to provide clear insight into how we address content from world leaders on Twitter today, and will serve as our statement on the decisions we make, rather than our teams providing feedback on individual Tweets and decisions. We’ve also updated our dedicated Help Center page to provide a significantly more detailed breakdown of how we make decisions regarding the use of the public interest notice.

Our goal is to enforce our rules judiciously and impartially. In doing so, we aim to provide direct insight into our enforcement decision-making, to serve public conversation, and protect the public’s right to hear from their leaders and to hold them to account.

It is interesting that Twitter decided to make some clarifications this week and the day of the Democrat debate. Kamala Harris calls for Twitter to knock Trump off the platform while Elizabeth Warren just chuckles when asked if she agrees and says no. Warren even had a line all ready for Harris during the debate on Tuesday night. “I don’t just want to push Trump off Twitter, I want to push him out of the White House.”

Elizabeth Warren is no friend to Big Tech these days. She’s sworn off contributions from the industry, too.

While Warren demurred on joining Harris’s plea, she had plenty of ire to offer the country’s largest technology companies: Twitter, Amazon and Facebook.

Warren called out Amazon on Tuesday, citing its wide-ranging grasp over customers, suppliers and the data that connects them.

“You get to be the umpire in the baseball game and you get to be the team, but you don’t get to do both at the same time,” she said.

Also on Tuesday, Warren pledged to turn down contributions of more than $200 from executives at Big Tech companies, large banks, private equity firms or hedge funds.

Despite the demonization of Big Tech by Warren, Silicon Valley is falling in line and donating to her campaign as they begin to fear that Biden won’t last. We’ll see how Twitter implements the new policy and which “leaders” will be affected.
