Kamala Harris’s Dishonesty on Abe Lincoln

Posted on Wednesday, October 14, 2020

It was impossible to miss how Kamala Harris, like Joe Biden, refused to answer questions about their plans to expand the Supreme Court. But she also misrepresented history.

Harris claimed at the VP debate that Abraham Lincoln refused to nominate a candidate for Chief Justice in October 1864 because “Honest Abe said, it’s not the right thing to do” and wanted the people to vote first.

Lincoln, of course, said no such thing. He sent no nominee to the Senate in October 1864 because the Senate was out of session until December. He sent a nominee the day after the session began, and Salmon P. Chase was confirmed the same day. And Lincoln wanted to dangle the nomination before Chase and several other potential candidates because he wanted them to campaign for him. Lincoln’s priority was winning the election, which was necessary to win the war — and he filled the vacancy at the first possible instant.

Kamala Harris is simply inventing history.

And of course the Democrat moderator, Susan Page, did NOTHING to correct the lie of Harris. Neither did the majority of the so-called MSM, who know about as much history as what they had last night for dinner. Thus those uninformed folks out there watching the debate were left with the impression that Harris’ statement was true. This is how the debate game has been played for the last 50 years. The Democrat candidate can make-up anything they wish and the moderator, always a Democrat supporter, will say nothing to correct the Democrat lies to ensure the public is getting accurate information.

Of course without lies and other means of deception, how would most Democrats ever manage to get themselves elected over and over again. It takes a certain degree of ignorance on the public’s part to facilitate the average Democrat in their rise to power. A well-informed electorate would be able to spot the lies and quickly conclude the Democrat candidate was being dishonest. Which is why our public school system hasn’t taught either American or world history properly for over half a century. The more ignorant the public becomes, the easier it is for the Democrats to get away with their lies.
