Kamala Practices Socialism Distancing

KamalaMore than a million people have watched Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) try to laugh her way through one of the most serious questions of this election. Would she bring her “socialist or progressive perspective” to the White House? In the “60 Minutes” interview that’s making plenty of voters queasy, Harris’s face freezes in stunned surprise before she cackles like she’d been asked the most ridiculous thing in the world. But is it? Not according to her own Twitter account, where — two days before the election — she shared her Marxist vision for America.

The post, which carries more than its share of risk, was a surprising move. After months of deflecting questions about his running mate’s extremism, Joe Biden will now have to spend the last 24 hours before the election explaining why Senator Harris is preaching “equity” over equality.” In the cartoon she shares on her feed, two men — one white and one black — are at the foot of the mountain. Only the white man can reach the rope and begins climbing. “Equality suggests, ‘Oh, everyone should get the same amount,'” Harris says in narration. “The problem with that [is], not everybody’s starting out at the same place.” She talks about the government giving everyone the same resources and support (read: redistribution of wealth) so that people can be on equal footing.

The backlash was almost immediate. “Sounds just like Karl Marx,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) argued. “A century of history has shown where that path leads. We all embrace equal opportunity, but government-enforced equality of outcomes is Marxist,” she insists. Congressman and former Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw agreed, warning that this was “the false promise of the Left in one minute… They leave out the part where equity must be enforced with unequal — and tyrannical — treatment.”

For Joe Biden, who’s been trying to tamp down concerns about Senator Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) influence on his campaign, this latest post is a disaster. In a townhall last week, even NBC allowed the former vice president to be asked about the Democrats’ push for socialism. “Do I look like a socialist?” Biden fired back. “Look, I’m the guy that ran against the socialist,” he argued — without acknowledging the very uncomfortable reality that his own platform was co-written by Sanders and included the most radical policies ever embraced by a modern party. He, like the rest of Democratic headquarters, is obviously praying no one reads it.

Even Harris’s smile faded when “60 Minutes” anchor Norah O’Donnell reminded her, “You’re considered the most liberal United States senator.” Harris shrugged, suggesting that Mike Pence had made up that label at the debate stage. To her credit, O’Donnell pushed back. “Well, actually,” she said, through Harris’s nervous laughter, “the nonpartisan GovTrack has rated you as the most liberal senator. You supported the Green New Deal. You supported Medicare for All. You’ve supported legalizing marijuana.” As Brad Polumbo points out on NRO, “Whether she embraces the label “socialist” or not, Harris’s stated agenda and Senate record both reveal her to be positioned a long way to the Left on matters of economic policy.” And if Joe Biden is elected, she is one step away from running the country — and it’s a smaller step than people want to believe.

As Donald Trump said in the final debate, it isn’t just Harris pushing these agendas. Joe Biden has moved so far to the Left that he might as well be in another zip code from the Obama years. “He wants socialized medicine,” the president warned. And it doesn’t matter if he says it or not. “His vice president… wants it even more. Bernie Sanders wants it. The Democrats want it. You’re going to have socialized medicine.” Don’t trust what he says, Trump warned. Trust his platform. Trust his running mate’s voting record. Neither of them, I guarantee, will strike you as funny.

For election resources that cut through the media’s noise, get the facts at PrayVoteStand.org. Share the links of the Trump Accomplishmentsthe party platforms; the presidentialSenate, and gubernatorial voter guides; and so much more! Just because you’ve voted doesn’t meant you’re done influencing the outcome! Make sure your friends and church family have the tools they need to vote their biblical values!

America has forsaken GOD and I think we should read our Bibles to see how that is going to work out.

What a surprise !!! A Democrat telling you a lie? Didn’t President Obama say one thing and do another for 8 years. They think all they have to do is smile and everyone will buy into it. And the scary part is that a lot of people still DO !!!

She is a Marxist socialist communist.
There’s no doubt in my mind that is true.
Tell me, after all this time, research on your own about the candidates, and listening or reading exactly what they said about what they will do or want to do, is there any doubts in your mind?
Trump is not a socialist Marxist communist Revolutionary dictator. He’s a Free and Fair Trade guy. He’s done his best to turn us back to the Constitutional Republican government our country is supposed to be.
Joe Biden is a patsy. He’s a wolf in democrat party lingo. 47 years of experience and what he’s done to make America better only enriched himself and his family or friends. I want nothing to do with him and his running mate.
From the beginning of Biden’s campaign, his profile and demeanor were a perfect fit for an old man version of Beavis and Butthead cartoon. Watch for yourself and tell me if you don’t see him like that.

God help us Lord. Our nation cannot allow these criminal people to run our nation, our military, our business, ever again. Corrupt, evil, and compromised by evil entities that mean harm to us ?? Americans. Media News supports all of them, and that makes no sense. We need You God. Please help us God. In Jesus name we pray.

It amazes me that people will spend a lot of time researching a product before they buy it but have little or no interest in Politics. As others have mentioned here they are brainwashed by Fake News and by word of mouth by others.This is outright laziness! Yes it takes work each day to keep informed on every candidate and issue but America is worth all the effort! God Bless America

Kamala Harris was raised in Canada. She has changed her accent in two different cities in the South. Saw it on The Five. Faked it in recent rallies to sound like those attending. What an insult to their intelligence. She acts as if she will fit in if she fakes her accent. She has been in California since she was in her twenties. What an evil liar.

What has happened to America: This has to be the first time in history that riots might happen after election & that a fence is being built around the White House & businesses are closing & boarding up windows in preparation. What has America become to react in ways that our parents brought us up not to do. Fence at WH really bothers me — that is our Nation’s Capitol & the symbol of freedom for +200 years.

All of this has been known for months. It’s too late to bring it out today. Suppresion of information is in the socialist/communist playbook. If they win today we are in for a world we never thought would come to America.

Felix: I agree with you all the way, I believe that this nation has been blessed from the start . But , the last 30-years America has been wandering from its roots & We need to heed warning signs from God. No matter who is elected, I will accept that is who God wants to lead us to the right path.

Now, to comment on todays article: The cartoon video from Kamala Harris is a waste of time & makes her look bad & not presidential material.

Most everybody has seen the video on news of Trump supporters surrounding Democrat bus on highway in Texas. Had to have been traumatic for people on bus. But worse part is Trump & Rubio both made fun of this episode (even tho FBI says will investigate). These two made comments that show they back intimidation , bullying, and breaking the law. Do not goad people to violent acts.

As some have already said, the outcome is in God’s hands. I have voted for Pres. Trump. However, God is the one who “raises kings and deposes kings”. Daniel 2:20-21. As many predictions of last times are transpiring, the rapture could occur at any time. The people who will be raptured will be the church. Who is the church? It is anyone trusting Christ Jesus to be their Savior. If you haven’t, simply ask in the quiet of your mind for Him to save you. He loves everyone, but if you don’t want Him, He won’t force you. The church is not mentioned after the first few chapters of Revelation, so we know it has been removed. We simply don’t know how much longer God will put up with people who don’t want His way and laws.

Trump has been able to put three new judges on Supreme Court & he has bragged about that. So why did he bash the Supreme Court decision so many times yesterday ruling on Pennsylvania vote counting?? If he does not agree he attacks court rulings, and to me it just shows that the Supreme Court makes rulings based on legal laws (and better than puppet of whoever is POTUS). Very disappointed in Trump bashing Supreme Court, which just adds fire to election results & his followers.

Kamala Harris is a disaster looking for a place to happen. If she is ever elected to an office of real power, we can look forward to the total dismantling of America as we know it. What we will end up with will make Hell look like the Garden of Eden by comparison.

Harris has more dark and dangerous faces than Medusa has serpents coming out of her head, among them:  Madame Chameleon (an existential threat to America), Charter Member of and Champion Spokesperson for the 180º Club (i.e., whatever position she espouses or embraces, the exact opposite is usually true), Madame Amorality (or Immorality – take your pick), Madame Radical, Madame Blind Ambition in concert with Ethical Bankruptcy, the Great Perfidious One, the Great Pretender, the Great Opportunistic Phony, the CaliMexico Loser, the Snarky One, the Great Whiner, the ultimate Madame Fakeness, ad nauseum (just choose as many as you want).

I am very troubled by those on the extreme left who refuse to acknowledge the extreme nature of their positions. Senator Harris cannot be placed in a position with the Presidency where she could very well be Constitutionally seated in that chair. This nation has never accepted that sort of extremist in high office, and we should not even consider it now. She completely destroys whatever credibility the Former Vice President might have, if any.

Pray for America and VOTE. America has been to a full scale revival and it has been refreshing. I can’t hear that song often enough: I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I am free.

Does her statement on everyone equal include herself? Of course it doesn’t. She has a socialist and communist background so if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck. I just pray we don’t have so many brain dead and hateful people that vote for her and Biden. I don’t see how anyone would want what they are advocating.
