Why Is No One (Except the President) Calling Out Kamala Harris’s Communist Ties?

kamalaOn Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” on Oct. 8, President Donald Trump described Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as a “communist; she’s left of Bernie!” The president went on to cite Sen. Harris’s views, which are indeed even more extreme than Senators Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) or Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.).

But there’s much more compelling evidence to indicate that, yes, Kamala Harris may indeed be communist.

Leftist Parents

Harris’s parents, her mother Shyamala Gopalan, an Indian cancer researcher, and Donald Harris, a Jamaican economist, were both hard-core leftists.

In the early 1960s, the couple were active in the Berkeley-based Afro-American Association.

According to one former member, Aubrey LaBrie, “Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were the heroes of some of us. … We would talk about Black Muslims, the liberation movements going on in Africa, everything.”

The group’s leader Donald Warden mentored two young Afro-American Association members Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, who would go on to found the Black Panther Party in 1966. The Panthers followed a Maoist philosophy and supported communist China. They serve as a model for today’s Black Lives Matter movement.

Years later, Warden (by then known as Khalid al-Mansour) would play a role in helping Barack Obama get into Harvard Law School.

In 1975, Donald Harris was recruited to the Stanford University economics department as an open Marxist.

Pro-Communist Boyfriend

After playing at student radical at Howard University, Kamala Harris returned to the Bay Area to launch her legal career. Thirty-year-old Harris formed an eyebrow-raising romantic relationship with then 60-year-old Willie Brown, a leading California Democrat, soon to become mayor of San Francisco.

Brown helped Harris’s career and steered her into a couple of board positions that paid her about $400,000 over 5 years, according to the San Francisco Weekly.

Brown was a long-time communist sympathizer. He was first elected to public office with the help of the Communist Party USA youth wing. He was funded by Dr. Carlton Goodlett, a communist newspaper owner, once awarded the Lenin Prize by the government of the former Soviet Union.

Several years after his affair with Harris, Brown was still openly sponsoring Communist Party fundraisers in the Bay Area while serving as San Francisco mayor.

Today, Brown is widely regarded as one of the Chinese Communist Party’s best friends in the Bay Area.

Communist-Affiliated Protégé

While serving as San Francisco district attorney, Harris mentored a young San Francisco activist named Lateefah Simon. After hiring her and helping Simon get through college, Harris introduced her young friend to many influential San Franciscans. Today, Simon serves as president of the leftist Akonadi Foundation and chairs the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) board.

When Harris first met Simon, the younger woman was serving on the board of directors of the Oakland-based Youth Empowerment Center. Every single other board member—Harmony Goldberg, Adam Gold, Cindy Wiesner, and future Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones—were members of the Maoist communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM).

Gold is today a member of LeftRoots, an affiliate group of America’s main pro-China communist party Liberation Road.

Simon is best friends with another LeftRoots member, Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza.

Harris openly supports Black Lives Matter and is still close with Simon and Garza. In turn, Garza is a long-time friend and associate of LeftRoots comrade Alex Tom—a man with close ties to the radical Chinese Progressive Association and to the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco.

Communist-Affiliated Financial Benefactor

Harris’s sister Maya Harris was a student activist at Stanford University. She was a friend of Steve Phillips, one of the leading Marxist-Leninists on campus and a long-time affiliate of a pro-China group League of Revolutionary Struggle.

According to Phillips’ blog “Political Intelligence”:

“First, let me make clear that I come out of the Left. I’ve studied Marx, Mao, and Lenin. In college, I organized solidarity efforts for freedom struggles in South Africa and Nicaragua, and I palled around with folks who considered themselves communists and revolutionaries …, and I did my research paper on the Black Panther Party.”

After leaving Stanford in the early 1990s, Phillips led many of his comrades into the Democratic Party. He also married into the multi-billion Sandler family Golden West savings and loan fortune, which enabled the young revolutionary to buy himself considerable political influence.

Sandler money has funded the Center for American Progress, ProPublica, and multiple candidates and ballot initiatives around the country. In 2008, Phillips spent $10 million through his PowerPAC-plus on voter registration drives in Southern and South Western states that got his friend Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

In 2013, Phillips helped elect his old Stanford friend Cory Booker to the U.S. Senate from New Jersey. In 2018, he almost made his protégés Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum the governors of Georgia and Florida, respectively.

Phillips is a friend of the Harris family and helped Maya Harris’s husband Tony West become associate attorney general in the Obama administration. He has also been a major sponsor of Kamala Harris’s political career.

In 2003, Phillips helped elect Harris as San Francisco district attorney. Ironically, she beat incumbent Terence Hallinan, who as a young communist helped Willie Brown win his first election.

Phillips’ PowerPAC-plus helped elect Harris as California attorney general in 2010 and then to the U.S. Senate in 2016.

Pro-Communist Chief of Staff

In the early 2000s, Harris’s current chief of staff Karine Jean-Pierre was active with the New York-based Haiti Support Network. The organization worked closely with the pro-China/North Korea Workers World Party and supported Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the far-left former president of Haiti and his radical Lavalas moment.

In April 2004, at the Whitman Theatre at Brooklyn College, 2,000 gathered to hear a program entitled “An Evening with Friends of Haiti: The Truth Behind the Haiti Coup.”

The rally was co-chaired by Jean-Pierre and Kim Ives of the Haiti Support Network, along with Pat Chin and Sara Flounders from the Workers World Party.

In May 2004, Jean-Pierre joined a delegation to Haiti with two well-known Workers World Party comrades Steve Gillis and LeiLani Dowell.

Around the same time, Jean-Pierre worked for China-friendly New York City Council member James Sanders. Her duties as part of his reelection campaign included working with the local branch of the much discredited “community organizing” group ACORN.

Communist-Affiliated Husband

Harris’s husband Doug Emhoff works for the law firm DLA Piper, which “boasts nearly 30 years of experience in China and over 140 lawyers dedicated to its ‘China Investment Services’ branch,” according to the National Pulse.

Writes the National Pulse:

“To facilitate DLA Piper’s China practice—which has received countless prestigious awards from the China Business Law Journal and China Law and Practice—the company employs a host of former Chinese Communist Party officials.

“Ernest Yang, who serves as the firm’s Head of Litigation & Regulatory department and Co-Head of International Arbitration, was appointed to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in 2013. The CPPCC serves as the top advisory board for the Chinese Communist Party, and Yang was promoted to the body’s Standing Committee in 2019.

“Jessica Zhao, a Senior Advisor, served as the Deputy Secretary General of the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC), a government-owned body established by the Chinese Communist Party in 1956. It was developed under the auspices of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, ‘a governmental body for the furtherance of Chinese trade promotion.’”

Several other high-level DLA Piper employees, both Chinese and American nationals, have served the Chinese regime in some capacity or another.

Emhoff took a leave of absence from the firm in August, The American Lawyer reported.

Background Check Anyone?

If Biden is elected president, Harris will be one heartbeat or a few brain cells away from the top job.

If Harris was to apply for a mid-level job in the Department of Agriculture, she would almost certainly fail the security background check. She owes her entire career to sympathizers or active enablers of the Chinese Communist Party.

Fortunately for her (and potentially disastrous for the country), elected office holders are not subject to the security clearance process.

President Trump has said that “If Joe Biden ever got elected, China will own America.”

Biden picked the ideal running mate to help out.

If Biden is elected, the Democrats will make Harris president and erase Biden the same as Bolsheviks erased some of the people who founded the Bolshevik movement in Russia.But I hope we will not have to worry about either Biden or Harris becoming president.

We are standing on the edge of a cliff, one wrong step and the fall will be to great. If President trump wins and we hold the senate we might survive but Trump can still win, and we lose the senate and the house Trump will be impeached , and if Biden wins he will be removed by the Demonrats if they control the house and senate so they can make Kamala Harris President, the only hope we have is that President Trump wins reelection and we take the house and senate. God bless President Donald J.Trump ! God bless… Read more »

Geezer, what a surprise! … I have referring to today’s Democratic Party as being Progressively Communist for years. Both Obama and Hillary were followers of Marxist Saul Alinsky and the American Communist Party who had never before endorsed any Republican or Democrat for President has now endorsed Obama twice, Hillary and now Rambling Joe Biden. As I always point out, take today’s Democratic Party platform and compare it to Josef Stalin’s 1957 platform and you will notice the similarities. This is NOT my mother’s Democratic Party anymore and she must be rolling over in her grave because her parents escaped… Read more »

This detailed article says it all. She is totally engrained with Communist doctrine along with people who also support that ideology. It is a scary thought about how close she is to Biden and the top leadership position in America. The citizens of the United States need to focus on what is wrong with Marxist/Communist leadership in the freest country in the world. Once that freedom is diminished, the power to make reasonable laws will be gone. The wrong leadership will focus on their personal power grab outside the freedom of the people.

Excellent case is built in the article. However, while Kamala is a serious Socialist, those of us who lived in CA during her career never saw her support “communism”. She is a despicable, nasty person and that is why she should never be VP. The ties to China are minor compared to other reasons why she should never hold national office

There are no safeguards to keep this nightmare from happening. The FBI or the justice department doesn’t work for us. Some of the departments defy orders from the President and even after discovery nothing happens. No indictments, no arrests. It takes about a hour to get a arrest warrant and off to jail they go. There are two sets of laws and ours are certainly not theirs. Just like health care. If President Trump loses this election we Americans will loose our Republic and most likely forever.

Reading this article is down right scary. I had a conversation with my son yesterday that scared me, as well. Many of the folks do not believe Socialism or Communism is bad. This is a result of the education system that has been taken over by far leftists. All I can do at this point is pray to God that enough folks with true values will come out and vote for President Trump.

Most foreign news has done countless pieces on the infiltration of the socialist and communist movement into our Democrat party going back decades. This excellently written piece is just typical of the kind of journalism that has been written over the years exposing the real backgrounds and views of many of the Democrat party’s elected officials. Hope none of this comes as a surprise to anyone, because you could have found much of this information out through a little on-line research. It’s not like most Democrat officials have scrubbed their personal histories from the entire world-wide Internet. At least not… Read more »

WOW! WHAT A DISGRACE that the media hasn’t reported on Kamala Harris’ biography and links to communism that she still is connected to. Given that & Joe Biden’s beholding to China via deals he has either participated in or turned a blind eye to…if Biden/Harris are elected…our Constitution and individual freedom will be history. I PRAY AMERICA WAKES UP and votes out the WOKE anti-America bunch. Much of the media is beholding to China and won’t expose the links Biden and Harris and other Democrats have to Communism. Wish I knew how to reach Americans with facts that would inform… Read more »

If Biden is elected, the Senate will do Pelosi’s bidding concerning the transfer of power (Biden is definitely not mentally fit to be president) and Harris will be president with Nancy Pelosi next in line and calling the shots. It is good that word of her ties to communism is out in the open. Thank you.

I was frightened for my country before I read this article–now I am terrified. We have such an unresponsive media that doesn’t make all of this common knowledge. I did have limited knowledge of the Communist movement since the ’60s and I had observed obama as he moved them into our Government. I don’t think I realized the totality of their control.

Even America’s democrat communist party rejected Kamala in the early democrat communist primaries. Why? Because Kamala was too much too soon!
