AMAC Exclusive – By Aaron Flanigan

Kamala Harris sitting and smirking

As reports of the Biden family’s corruption continue to permeate the news cycle and hang over the heads of Washington liberals, there are some signs that Democrat operatives are preparing a “plan B” in the event Biden’s re-election next year becomes politically unviable.

As the New York Times reported earlier this month, Vice President Kamala Harris has ventured off on a summer swing state blitz, visiting key battleground states like Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Florida in what looks to be an attempt to expand her political profile and “reclaim the momentum” that supposedly propelled her to the vice presidency in 2020.

During her late July stop in Iowa, which fell on same day as the Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner in Des Moines, Kamala railed against the Hawkeye State’s recent pro-life legislation, which bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Kamala lamented the legislation as “immoral,” slamming Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and other pro-life Republicans as “extremist” and anti-woman.

Similarly, in Florida, Kamala took aim at Governor Ron DeSantis and the Republican-led state legislature for what she falsely characterized as attempts to “ban books” and “erase and even rewrite the ugly parts of our history.”

Last week, Kamala visited Philadelphia, where she promised to boost pay for union construction workers in a bid to win over another historic Democrat constituency that has inched toward the GOP in recent cycles.

But in many ways, even with Biden’s growing rap sheet of political liabilities, Kamala’s return to the spotlight is perplexing—and is likely to come with significant political risks.

It’s no coincidence that Kamala has thus far remained on the political sidelines for most of Biden’s term. She is the least popular sitting vice president on record and is prone to cringeworthy gaffes on the campaign trail that put even some of Biden’s humiliating errors and misstatements to shame.

Kamala Harris is such a liability that political pundits have openly speculated that her presence on a 2024 ticket could significantly hamper Biden’s chances at retaining power. Last November, far-left outlet Slate ran the headline “If Biden runs again, he should pick a new VP.”

But even so, the Times has reported that Kamala “has been freed up to travel more”—a sign that she could remain front-and-center as the left ramps up its efforts to retain the White House next fall.

Meanwhile, EMILY’s List, a pro-abortion advocacy group, is reportedly shoveling tens of millions of dollars to “defend and prop up” Kamala as Election Day draws closer—a move that Politico described as “politically unprecedented.”

But why, given Kamala’s historic levels of unpopularity, are Democrats getting behind her publicity tour—and doing so at the expense of other Democrat presidential hopefuls like Gavin Newsom, who would almost certainly be more competitive in a general election?

One possible explanation is that many leftists have insisted that any criticism directed towards Kamala is nothing more than veiled racism and sexism against someone who they view as a historically accomplished leader. As one Democrat strategist put it, “[It] shouldn’t surprise anyone that there is going to be a different filter and a different focus put on the first woman to ever be vice president of the United States, particularly a woman of color.”

A Newsweek column this summer similarly stated that Kamala’s unpopularity is merely a symptom of “our inability to hold men, and especially white men, accountable for their job performance.”

Democrat Party leadership might feel as though they have no choice but to elevate Kamala as the primary Biden alternative, despite the clear electoral risks she poses to the party.

Another potential explanation for Kamala’s swing state tour is that Democrats attribute her low polling numbers to a lack of political exposure—and feel that the best way to improve her image is to reintroduce her to voters as Biden deals with his mountain of scandals.

Either way, whether Biden ultimately ends up as the Democrat nominee next November or not, it appears that the left is growing more determined to ensure that Kamala plays a central role in the 2024 presidential campaign.

Given that most polls consistently show Kamala losing to any potential GOP challenger by double-digit margins, this might be one Democrat campaign strategy that Republicans should fully embrace.

Choosing who you want as President between Biden, Harris, or Newsome is like choosing which horrible disease you want to slowly die from.

I don’t see her as a “Politically significant woman of color” I don’t see her color at all… I see an inept, bumbling, disgrace of a political “leader” because she isn’t serving the country.

Agree with Stephen. If we don’t get the integrity of our elections under control, get rid of the $#&@!! electronic voting fraud mechanism, outlaw ballot harvesting, impose a one day time limit on elections that can not be ignored by state election boards, insist on proof of citizenship and identification in order to vote and get back to paper ballots than can be overseen and recounted accurately, there’s never going to be a free or fair election not only here, but any where else in the industrialized world.
For Pete’s sake folks; we’ve got the filthy scum Murdocks/Fox News contributing money to the Temple of Satan (just one example of Marxist Elitist money being used this way). If that’s not bad enough, the World Monetary fund, as well as every central bank on the planet is putting the full court press on trying to go over to a cashless economic system world wide using Digital Central Bank regulated currency that will impose this Satanic control scheme on the entire world’s population, right out of Revelations, and they’re not even trying to be covert or coy about what they’re doing. The information and evidence is readily available everywhere around us. Meanwhile, people just apathetically go on with their daily lives oblivious to the incredible evil that is closing its vile hands around the collective throats of the entire human race.
We’d better start waking up, get back to our worship of and apostolic service to the Lord God and the defense of the church of Jesus Christ, and start confronting these evil bastards with courage born of faith, or we’re not going to have a world to try and save.

Disliking Kamala isn’t racist, she’s dislikeable because she’s a Jackass even worse than Biden and that’s really hard to do! Maybe, that’s why I like her so much!

Why the surprise? The same dem robots who gave us the great O will line up to vote for her should she be the nominee. So it makes perfect sense that she should be sent out to tout abortion, the only thing dems hold as sacred. Think of it as the back up qb warming up on the sidelines. This person could well be our next potus if independents shun trump and sniffy is out of it and the voting systems arent fixed.

At this rate in our Country, I’m wondering, perhaps my cat “Blackie” should run for President. My cat ‘Autumn’ (who is a “Furry” and is neutered) should be Vice President. And my cat ‘Curiosity’ (who is a teenager) should be Speaker of the House. This would fit in perfect in our Clown World. Lol. Ya’ gotta laugh or you’ll cry.

Communist harris repeats same lies and promises that Dictator Beijing biden made. And look where we are.
Now imagine Communist harris ruining (running) things who CANNOT even SECURE the BORDERS and on top of that put in charge of Artificial Intelligence. Talk about an oxymoron.
Not to mention she PUSHES for Communism. We ALL saw it on msm in 2019, 2020, 2021, and ALL THE WAY UP TO TODAY.
She even HID her prosecution records in 2019 from the public while running ILLEGALLY for VP. Remember, Communist harris BAILED OUT of JAIL ALL the antifa TERRORIST and blm TERRORIST and PROMOTED RIOTING just like SWAMP QUEEN pelosi did on msm as cities were being BURNED and DESTROYED WITH PEOPLE BEING ATTACKED AND MURDERED. Yet, they called it peaceful protest just like the Fake News called it. The PICTURES PROVE OTHERWISE.
This ALL DISQUALIFIED Communist harris IMMEDIATELY when she was campaigning for VP.
So, WHERE IS THE FBI RAID ON HER AND CHARGES AGAINST HER?
Communist harris WILL BOW DOWN to Communist China just like Dictator Beijing biden.
BOTH ARE Communist China AGENTS.
THEIR RECORDS SPEAK VOLUMES.
One last thing..Dictator Beijing biden and Communist harris are only going to Maui because of Poll Ratings. Not to mention that Dictator Beijing biden will give $700 to each victim of Maui fires (MAJOR INSULT) but GIVES Ukraine ANOTHER $46 (?) BILLION OF OUR TAX DOLLARS BUT CAN’T SECURE OUR BORDERS OR TAKE CARE OF AMERICANS OR OUR COUNTRY.
That’s democrats for you.

Why are we even talking about this woman. Why are we talking personalities. Shouldn’t we discuss what the democrats are doing to this country? Isn’t Kameltoe part and parcel of that? Let us talk about governing by ole Joe or a Republican. Do you feel ole Joe is going in the right direction and should be given 4 more years to take us all over the cliff. Or do you think the local dog catcher would do a better job. Just saying.

As a financially trapped Californian, I’m so SAD to see what Newsome and the democraps have done to my Beautiful State. They need to go to San Fran & L.A. and step in the CRAP there! People say you get what you vote for, but I do not know anyone that voted for this! I would not be surprised to find out that we have serious Voter Fraud. So many people signed the petition to remove Newsome and he is still here! Please Pray for us.

O’Bama picked Biden for his VP for his Foreign Policy expertise, even though he hadn’t ever been right. He was really chosen because he couldn’t be smarter than Barak ! So, DementiaJoe gets in, can’t have a VP smarter than him, a “woman of color”, they choose” Cackies” with a gaffe-a-minute. It is a deadly downward spiral. When O’Biden falls down the steps of AF-1 instead of up, who is Kamala going to pick for VP ? Mayor Pete ? He spits-out more pretty words without saying anything than even ” Cackies” herself !!

Harris has been as much of an embarrassment to American citizens as Biden has been, just in a bit different way. It is clear from Harris not doing anything in the tasks she has been given to do that she just has no abilities for anything in government other than being able to hold a government office she has no right being in.

It is impossible for me to believe that Joe Biden could get re-elected with Kamala, or anyone else as a vice presidential candidate. How many reasons do I need to list why this man should not be electable. His mental incompetence, his record over the last 3 years, the border, do I need to go on? Because we have no way to build a military machine to fight a war with China, nor even Russia really. We need a leader that can negotiate with world leaders, not shake their heads over how the United States ever elected this guy. We are in peril here, if we don’t recognize that fact we are in real trouble here.

Having escaped from California recently after living there for 60 plus years, our country is doomed if CA Governor Newsom ends up being our next President. Maybe even the Democrats are beginning to realize it. Furthermore, Obama would not be able to control him like he does Biden and Harris.

These idiots could do a remake of the movie, Dumb and Dumber, but it could be increased by one actor, Gavin Newsom. Then rename the movie Stupid, Studer, and stupidest. The only question left would be who would be best to play which role. For those that don’t know gavin, he started out most famously as the mayor of S.F He handed out needles to the addicts in the city to prevent disease. Well folks, guess what? That being the case the addicts would relieve themselves on the street and when done with the needles those were left on the street too. Then old gavin had to hire workers to go around and clean the mess up. Next the voters of CA were ignorant enough to vote this mental titan in as gov. Taxes went through the roof. Now is there any guess why people of CA are leaving CA in droves? P.S. I don’t cap. the first letter of gav., joe, kamala or any of the rest of those communist idiots since that is just what they are and none of those three have ever done anything in their lifetimes to deserve that much respect!!!

It is not a matter of the individual’s ethnic group / color or gender. It is their to first, care and protect the U.S. and to have clear and profound knowledge of world affairs and diplomacy to deal with the ever-changing complexities that the world is embroiled in. Personally, though former President Trump may to some voters seem to posses a boorish persona, he for some of his short falls was able to bring forth many good and positive outcomes throughout the political landscape. I for one truly miss his leadership and with profound hope will be re-elected again.
