Kamala Harris would like to criminalize climate dissent

Kamala Harris is running to be the next US President. In case anyone hasn’t heard, rumors are that Joe Biden health is iffy and he is the temporary filler to get over the line, and if so, the VP then becomes The P. It’s not just a fringe idea. In a Rasmussen poll,  59% of voters say “it’s likely.”

So, the pocket guide to Kamala Harris for skeptics is that according to Progressive Punch, she’s further left than Bernie Sanders which is quite the feat. Appropriately she has a $10 Trillion dollar plan to get better weather, and “aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2045″ — which would be five years quicker than the famous Green New Deal.

How extreme is Kamala Harris? Pretty extreme says Kyle Smith, National Review

There are various measures for these things, but according to Progressive Punch (“Leading with the Left”), Kamala Harris is the fourth farthest-left of any senator with a score of 96.76 percent out of 100 on “crucial votes,” despite moderating very slightly in the period when she was running for president. Elizabeth Warren is fifth, Kirsten Gillibrand is sixth, and Bernie Sanders is tenth. Here is a portion of the chart.

Put another way, there are 100 Senators in the US Congress and apparently only 3 were more radical.

Kamala Harris was a state attorney general who abused her position to try to silence skeptics.

On Kamala Harris

Kevin D Williamson

Harris was a leader in the junta of Democratic state attorneys general that attempted to criminalize dissent in the matter of global warming, using her office’s investigatory powers to target and harass non-profit policy groups while she and her counterpart in New York attempted to shake down Exxon on phony fraud cases.

Until she was stopped by a federal court, Harris was laying subpoenas on organizations such as the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, a conservative-leaning group that is critical of Democratic global-warming proposals. She demanded private information that the organizations were not legally obliged to disclose, including financial information and donor lists, in order to be able to subject the supporters of right-leaning groups to legal and financial harassment. This was, as a federal judge confirmed, an obvious and unquestionable violation of the First Amendment. It was also a serious abuse of power.

Why does any of this matter in far distant Oz? In a world of Sino sabre-rattling the leader of the planet’s largest military force has a certain gravitational pull on policies overseas. Any nation that hopes to share the umbrella will feel reluctant to walk a wildly different path.

Eighty two days to go.

 

Contradictions abound in the Rasmussen poll. The VP may be President one day, but more than half of the voters don’t care who Biden picks. And more than half the country say they won’t vote for Trump, but aren’t interested in who they will vote for. Welcome to 2020 politics:

… only 45% of all voters say Biden’s choice of a running mate is important to their vote this fall, including 23% who say it’s Very Important. This compares to 76% who say generally speaking that a candidate’s vice presidential nominee is important to their vote, with 34% who feel it’s Very Important.

But then just over half of voters continue to say they’re likely to vote against President Trump this fall, and a sizable majority of those voters don’t seem to care who runs against him.

        Last year I spent a few days in Paris and was somewhat amazed by the large number of electric scooters. While we sat in vehicles making slow progress, the scooters zipped about without much limitation.

        E-bikes and scooters are a rapidly growing technology for mobility in crowded cities. They make much more sense than behemoths like Teslas. There are some novel means of integrating modern electronic systems such as GPS and electronic payment into the e-vehicles:
        https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0968090X16000747

        There is already a large number of e-vehicles in China and it is a rapidly growing sector.

        I note that in my area of suburban Melbourne, all the posties are now using pedal/electric bikes. Have not had a chance to chat with the postie since the bikes were introduced here this year. I guess that can always pedal back to base if the battery goes flat.

        There are many reasons why the latest internal combustion engine technology and using liquid fossil fuels is superior to electric vehicles and hybrids.

        * Price: at the cheapest level EV is double or more the price of an equivalent ICEV.
        * Refuelling convenience.
        * Range (real range, not estimated by manufacturer new battery pack theoretical range). On average deduct 30 per cent just for recharging factors – on board system will not allow discharge below 10 per cent and it is not recommended to exceed 80 per cent charge regularly, or rapid charging regularly. And then deduct variable energy usage like air conditioning and passenger/luggage load, hills, etc.
        * It is more fuel efficient to burn petrol/diesel fuel in an ICEV and to recharge EV from grids mainly energised by coal, gas or diesel powered generators.
        * When all operating costs are accounted for EV: electricity, planned road maintenance tax, recharging leads and home or office charge points, replacement battery pack, and the retail price difference between EV and ICEV, there is no significant running cost saving, the extra price would pay for a lot of servicing and liquid fuel.
        * Exothermic reaction fire hazard potential, and like LPG fuelled vehicles in NSW a sticker on front and rear number plates is required including for an interstate visitor’s EV to alert authorities to potential fire hazard. This might be a low level risk but so is LPG in vehicles.
        * High energy usage on highway and towing trailers, the greater the load of trailer plus passengers and luggage the shorter the EV range, typically on highway by at least 50 per cent of real suburban range when EV is the most energy efficient. In EV as compared to ICEV the range limitation for a country the area of Australia is a significant factor.

        If the price was competitive/affordable then for mostly suburban driving EV could be worth considering, I like the lack of tailpipe emissions/pollution advantage.

      Well generally, whenever a nation economically goes fown the tubes, a war is the usual “fix”…but in the US case its more likely an internal civil war.

      Maybe thats good – the bulk of the population are conservative so the US could rout the lunatic left and nullify its corrosive influence on society for a couple of generations…its a silver lining of sorts.

      The right can shoot and have a strong moral compass, the left are devious and get confused about bathrooms, so it wont end well for the loony left….

    She is among the reasons I left California.

    The MSM has fostered hate against Trump since he announced he was running for President. Far too many people have bought in to the hate because they don’t know any better. America is surely doomed if this unfounded hate enables the Marxists surrounding Biden to seize control.

    The underlying problem is that social media combined with MSM bias results in reasons to hate traveling faster and further than the revelation that those reasons are wrong.

      When I lived in CA, she was known as “Horizontal Harris” or “Heels Up Harris”. She obtained her political positions by “dating” Willie Brown, once Speaker of the CA Legislature and later Mayor of San Francisco. Both of them were as crooked as a barrel of snakes. She was known to be vicious, vindictive, hateful and a shrew. He was slick as a weasel, and an excellent con man.

      Escaped in 1997 and would never go back. The Liberals ruined the state. Used to be a nice place. Not any longer.

    Has anyone yet told Biden that she’s been picked as his VP? :-)

    Also, I agree that if the unthinkable happens and Biden gets elected he’ll be immediately removed under the 25th Amendment due to his dementia and replaced with the intended candidate, Harris.

    As for her racial “pedigree”, since Leftists are so obsessed with that, her mother is Tamil Indian and her father Donald J. Harris is Jamaican born but also appears to be an Asian Indian, not of African origin or perhaps he is biracial.

    Naturally none of that matters to conservatives but it does to Leftists who market her as an “African American” whether that is true or not, but it appears not to be the case.

    Her father was an economics professor and his economics are “post Keynesian”.

    QUOTE
    Harris is said to work in the tradition of Post-Keynesian Economics.[15][16] He has acknowledged the works of Joan Robinson, Maurice Dobb, Piero Sraffa, Michal Kalecki, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes, Joseph Schumpeter, and William Arthur Lewis as varied influences upon his work.[17][18][19][20]

    “Well, first of all, I don’t even call it climate change, it’s a climate crisis,” Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris said the debate.

    “It represents and existential threat to us as a species,” Harris said.

    “And the fact that we have a president of the United States who has embraced science fiction over science fact will be to our collective peril.”

    It’s amazing, so many first generation ‘black’ Americans in congress and they all think America is a rotten place. Their parents didn’t. And as a child of slave owners with a successful migrant British Jamaican economist father and migrant Indian cancer researcher mother, she is hardly under privileged or the downtrodden daughter of victims of American racism and slavery. The hyprocrisy is writ large, but it hardly bothers someone who as Crown Prosecutor smoked marijuana but put 2,000 others in jail for doing so. And AOC’s Green New Deal would devastate America, eliminating fossil fuels within 9 years.

    You can only think the Democrats are so convinced of success that they can rewrite the constitution, introduce a totally socialist state, eliminate freedom of speech, legalize and government fund abortion up to full term, ban firearms, no migration limits, free health care for all migrants, get rid of petrol cars, coal power stations and nuclear power stations and fire the military (‘defund the Pentagon’), leaving America powerless in every sense and the rest of the world utterly helpless. And the big question is why?

        There is a long list of insane policies pushed by Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and other extreme communists who pose as ‘socialists’, like the original National Socialitists, the Nazis.

        These are all people you would not trust in your house let alone Congress. And the Free Education, Free health, free energy, no carbon dioxide mob and total equality where black people are preferenced over all other colours is beyond dangerous. It is the end of the basic founding principles of the American state and constitution which brought so many people from so many countries into a single effective country. And so many first generation migrants who made it to congress think it is all a mess and needs to change to a communist state.

        As Donald Trump said, they should go back to where they and their parents came from and fix those countries first. That include Barack Obama and East Africa. The anti racists are racists. The anti Fascists are fascists. The everything free mob means socialism where everyone is equally poor.

        The plot thickens. Guess who is now in charge of deciding who can/can’t speak on Twitter? Nick Pacilio, Kamala Harris’s former press secretary, who is now Head of Communications at Twitter . . . and then this happens today.

        “TWITTER TO EXPAND RULES AGAINST MISINFORMATION ON MAIL-IN BALLOTS, EARLY VOTING”
        https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/twitter-to-expand-rules-against-misinformation-on-mail-in-ballots-early-voting/ar-BB17TUTE?ocid=msedgdhp

        “Twitter said it is exploring how to expand its “civic integrity policies” to address mischaracterizations of mail-in voting and other procedures, including registration.
        U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed without evidence that voting by mail, which is expected to increase dramatically this fall due to coronavirus outbreak, is susceptible to large-scale fr**d.”

        The wildest claim is that Twitter has integrity, civic or otherwise.

          beowulf, this is major regarding who gets to decide what may be said and herd. George Soros will be pleased…
          Funding to manipulate Federal Elections, those leaked Soros funding documents show that Soros poured hundreds of millions of dollars into often secret efforts to change election laws, to fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, such as citizenship verification and voter ID, to push public narratives about voter fraud as a myth, and attempts to manipulate media coverage of election issues in mainstream media outlets like The New York Times.

          The funding documents name groups that received more than $500,000 each year, including the Centre for Community Change, the Advancement Project Centre and the Brennan Centre. Two of these organisations, the Advancement Project and Brennan Centre, regularly oppose election integrity measures in court and influence media by pushing voter fraud denial narratives.

          https://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/2016/11/07/leaked-documents-reveal-expansive-soros-funding-to-manipulate-federal-elections/

          Soros’ money also targets voter mobilization of minority groups that can be counted on to vote for the Democrats, the political party Soros supports. The documents also show funding for the League of Women voters and their current program to stop efforts by Kansas, Georgia and Alabama to verify that only citizens are registering to vote.

    But then just over half of voters continue to say they’re likely to vote against President Trump this fall,

    Just 2.5 months to the vote which which will determine the course of the western world for the next 4 years! I am anxiously trying to read the tea leaves. If 45% of voters think that the VP position is important, they might be the Democrat voters. How many of them might abstain because of anxieties about Kamala Harris as POTUS.

    Who answers polls anymore? Last US election they were virtually useless. If you were a DT /Republican supporter and you were polled, good chance you would give phoney answers anyway. Election day in the US could be quite messy. I think the BLM/ Antifa lot will try as hard as possible to disrupt polling. Maybe even bully voters. There will disruption somehow and if Trump wins again the Dems will complain it wasn’t a fair election. This happens on House of Cards (US version)- Frank Underwood ( Kevin Spacey) goes to election vs a war hero Republican and loses but manages to orchestrate a mobile phone outage in Washington. The Dems argue the outage influenced the election and called it a non result. Life imitating art? It’s happened before. Remember the” Simpsons” predicted Trump to be President.

    Has anyone heard of the 80/20 rule..
    In any given situation, 10% of a population defend a principal with great zeal, 10% of the population oppose that ideal vociferously, while 80% of the population really don’t care, or simply just want to get on with their lives.
    The 10 percenters are the weepers, wailers, whingers and whiners, the bleaters, blanket clutchers, bed wetters and hand wringers, the gnashers of teeth, the guilt ridden, the perpetually offended, eternally aggrieved, the humourless and ever waiting victim.
    Unfortunately, the 10 percenters know the their philosophy will not stand up to the scrutiny of reason, logic or debate, so they defend their premise with harassment, bullying, censorship and violence. (The lefties…?)
    They make so much noise, that the 80 percenters think that it is they, who are in the minority, and so are reluctantl to speak, or voice an opinion, lest they be targeted. This becomes apparent when unloseable elections are lost, and the 80 percenters can express themseves with anonymity.
    I am an 80 percenter, just wanting to get through the day happy and peacefully, but, unfortunately the alarmists, at times drive me into a 10% group, and I find it difficult to deal with, and I yell at the tv and have, on occasion, smashed radios.( only one)

        I dont think the left have truly worked out how sincerely ticked off and itching for the excuse of payback that conservatives are harbouring. Generally most conservatives wont react unless forced into a corner and having to physically defend thier families, but if they are it will be like a daisy cutter hitting the left….short sharp and with no mercy. For years conservatives have had to put up with the demented, spittle-sprayed and wild eyed rantings of the left. Once you come after families, the gloves come off and the left will find out very quickly they are weak.

    The intolerance of the left extends well beyond climate change and the idea of this woman gaining control is indeed very scary. A GND would cause the markets to crash, the USD to crash, the banking system to crash and the economy to completely collapse. But worse still, it would cause the free world to collapse. These people are aware of what will happen, but know that a destitute population is one unable to reject their socialist incursion and totalitarian abmbitions. The nature of current left wing politics shows that the only lives that matter are those that can be used for political purpose and the real privilege is reserved for members of their own “elite” ruling class. The general masses are simply expendable fodder that get fed BS indoctrination, with forced compliance delivered to silence those that dissent. The extreme poverty that is always associated with Marxist regimes is a necessary measure for the elites to maintain their privileged status by having total control. One is now left to ponder how a once prosperous west ended up on the edge of this political cliff ?

    In contemplating the bigger picture of how this unfolded, looking back January 1st 2020, the world was witnessing a resurgent US economy , Trump on a continued rise with 4 more years seemingly locked-in, and with a strong rise in conservative politics being driven by a fearless Trump. The timing of the pandemic could not be more ideal for the left and for those that don’t believe in coincidences it raises more questions than just a Chinese conspiracy.

      A wee bit alarmist I think

        Only slightly alarmist I’d say Gee. Everything else he referenced was accurate.

        The way the Chinese Communists overtook China, was to destabilise the country. Make everything as chaotic as possible, then call for revolution and revolutionary change. The Dem party are doing exactly the same in Dem controlled cities.

    Another YouTube vid explaining why Harris was not the best choice I especially like the debate shown right at the end .

    Warning there are swear words in some of the twitter comments shown although the host of the show doesn’t swear .

          Even the left in America are ripping into this pick. I think Trump is right, this will help him more than the Dems

    Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Democrats, and globalist world leaders will promote the ‘Great Reset’.

    “For decades, progressives have attempted to use climate change to justify liberal policy changes. But their latest attempt – a new proposal called the “Great Reset” – is the most ambitious and radical plan the world has seen in more than a generation”.

    https://thehill.com/opinion/energy-environment/504499-introducing-the-great-reset-world-leaders-radical-plan-to

    “The Hill” is an American political website in Washington. This is a great website for keeping up to date with American and world politics.

    A further quote from “The Hill’ on the same subject:

    “For those of us who support free markets, the Great Reset is nothing short of terrifying”.

    The political manipulation of the CV-19 ‘plandemic’ could be seen as the rate determining step for implementing the ‘Great Reset’ in 2021.

    Kamala Harris’s nomination for VP brings up two questions. (1) Will she be able to find “Hiden Biden”? (2) Does she even want to?

    America vs China:

    America – enfeebled military + emasculated police + widespread social unrest + ruinously expensive energy + useless legal system + media controlled by champagne socialists + oil & gas revenue zero + businesses crippled by green tape + citizens disarmed + anti-American public service

    China – massively increased military + state-controlled police force + state-controlled legal system + state-controlled media + cheap coal-fired energy + control of UN, WHO, etc + military alliance with Russia + centralised economy + state-controlled banking system

    It’s not really hard to see who’s going to come out on top, is it?

    When murderous Che took over Cuba, the marxists used to execute each other for not being “marxist enough”. Its a kind of madness that seems to infest the Left. IMHO the left is the political party of demonic entities, so it doesnt surprise me at all.

    It reminds me of the gondii parasite that turns mice suicidal in front of cats….

    “Joe Biden health is iffy ”

    Bloke’s clearly got dementia (aside from his horrible compulsion to paw young girls). Stops mid sentence and that’s it. Speak’s rubbish. Apparently, he used to have a catch phrase – “Hi, I’m (whatever the name of his wife is)’s husband”. Last time round, “Hi. I’m Jo Biden’s husband”. Whoever is VP if Biden gets elected will be in within weeks. And maybe that’s the plan…

      Yes. Stupid plan. First win the election.

      Some now forgotten source suggested that Harris is Silicon Valley’s candidate. Google and Facebook and China will run the show. I’m not up to deciding how far fetched that suggestion be.

    I don’t think the evidence of this article justifies the headline.

    “She demanded private information that the organizations were not legally obliged to disclose”

    is not the same as “criminalizing climate dissent”.

    An interesting aside:
    I believe that the only person that is excluded from becoming a member of the Congress or Senate, on the grounds of birth or previous citizenship, is the President of the United States of America. What then happens when the elected Vice President (who is not excluded) becomes the President (by default) and is not therefore, eligible to hold that office?

    The fiasco is demonstrated in our recent enquiries in the eligibility of members of Parliament to hold a place in parliamentary office, because of of birth and previous Citizenship.

    Barack Hussain Obama, was definitely not eligible to become the President of the United States of America, under their Constitutional Law. Their country turned a blind eye to this fact.

      True, Obama was not a natural born citizen (and he was never naturalized either), but rather than “turning a blind eye,” the powers that be just lied about it and excluded the naysayers from mainstream avenues of public discourse, attempting to stigmatize them as “birthers.” Every time wrong doing is pointed out, someone cries, “Conspiracy theorist, conspiracy theorist!” as those that should be sufficient grounds for terminating discourse about the matter.

    There are very few women in the US Senate, yet women make up a whopping 50% of the 6 most left-leaning Senators. Yet Trump thinks passing the 19th amendment which allowed women to vote in federal elections (and thus run for office as well) was a good idea! What is that man smoking?
