In what may become the most unexpected and, perhaps, unwanted political comebacks in American political history, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who never inspired much confidence on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, may soon find herself, through default, the next president of the United States. Should the world start praying for Joe Biden’s continued good health?
Robert Bridge – Strategic Review March 20, 2021
As U.S. President Joe Biden enters the ninth week of his ‘shadow presidency’ without a single press conference under his belt, while uttering absolute nonsense when forced to speak, the possibility of Vice President Kamala Harris assuming the reins of power – exactly as many predicted would happen – is looking more likely with each passing day.
A shocking 47 percent of U.S. voters believe that “others” are making decisions for Biden behind the scenes, according to a Rasmussen poll. Could it be that Vice President Harris is the brains behind the duo, making the tough calls? That seems highly unlikely. As witnessed on the campaign trail that failed to excite the American imagination, Kamala Harris conspicuously lacks charisma, leadership qualities, and the diplomatic experience needed to navigate the White House through this time of crisis just weeks into Biden’s banana regime. Nevertheless, Harris is exactly the sort of ‘leader’ the powers behind the throne desperately want following four years of Donald Trump’s very hands-on presidency, which clipped the wings of the hawks, closed down the U.S. border to illegals and reinvested in U.S. manufacturing – the very pro-American developments that the globalists fear most.
In other words, with Biden barely aware of his surroundings, it is mere child’s play to foist Harris into the leadership role; indeed, the Democrats and the media will only be too relieved to see bumbling Biden sidelined lest his cognitive decline draw any further suspicion as to how such an incapacitated individual was able to garner more votes than any other presidential candidate in U.S. political history. Less than three months into the Biden presidency and that feat seems almost fantastical, and one that future historians will certainly have a lot to say about it. But I digress.
Already, Harris has assumed many of the duties traditionally performed by the commander-in-chief, like speaking with other heads of state, as she has already done with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, and French President Emmanuel Macron. At the same time, Biden is wantonly destroying bilateral relations with Russia, calling President Putin “a killer,” in the very same week that his Secretary of State Tony Blinken threw diplomatic caution to the wind, accusing Beijing of threatening the “rules-based order that maintains global stability.”
In one fell swoop, the blundering Biden administration has accomplished what U.S. foreign policymakers have long hoped to avoid, and that is a strategic partnership between Russia and China that is aimed primarily at the United States. Such an unattractive scenario, at a time when both Moscow and Beijing are in prime condition, now looks to be a certainty. Or is this merely the premeditated destruction of foreign relations in anticipation of the day when ‘President Harris’ rides to the rescue and performs her diplomatic ‘magic,’ undoing the mess that her dithering predecessor made on the global stage? It’s almost possible to imagine the Orwellian-style headlines already: ‘Harris Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize as U.S. Military Buildup Continues Across Eurasia.’
But that sort of apocalyptic speculation ignores a nagging question that has largely gone unanswered, which is: how on earth was such a conspicuously lackluster politician like Kamala Harris able to rise to such a high position – literally one step away from the Oval Office – in the first place?
Among an original field of 29 Democratic hopefuls to unseat the incumbent Donald Trump, Kamala Harris was a brief flash in the pan, mostly over an overhyped clash she had with Joe Biden in the first primary debates when she criticized her future boss over his past opposition to busing.
“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day,” Harris said with her trademark emotion that covers for nervousness. “That little girl was me!” Although that bittersweet moment resulted in a quick infusion of $2 million pouring into Harris’ campaign coffers, coupled with a short-lived uptick in popularity, her star was in the descendant.
That much seemed certain following her scrape with fellow Democratic presidential contender Tulsi Gabbard in the second round of the debates.
“I’m concerned about this record of senator Harris. She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said with a degree of calm and composure that made her look the most presidential on the crowded stage.
Gabbard continued: “She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California, and she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”
In a matter of seconds, the photogenic soldier-candidate from Hawaii had laid bare the claim that Harris would serve the interests of the progressives once in office. Clearly that was a well-crafted fairy tale.
In the aftermath of the debate, the hashtag #KamalaHarrisDestroyed blew up on Twitter, sounding the death knell to Harris’ presidential ambitions. However, to read about the exchange between Gabbard and Harris is one thing, but to hear the way the audience cheered following Gabbard’s scathing attack was quite telling: Harris was simply not respected and revered – and, I am guessing, is still not – as a serious presidential candidate.
Los Angeles Times columnist George Skelton nailed it when he wrote: “California Senator Kamala Harris should never have run for president in the first place. Her ambition far exceeded her ability.”
The American public seemed to feel exactly the same way about Harris’ political abilities as the polling that followed confirmed. From a short-lived high of 15 percent in July, 2019, the former California Senator’s popularity hit rock bottom at 2.5 percent just five months later when she announced she was withdrawing from the contest.
Yet it seems that particular ‘lackluster-ness’ is precisely what got Kamala Harris noticed in the first place. After all, the unfortunate fate of the Western democracies at this crucial moment in history is that they are increasingly being led not by the most intelligent, courageous and honorable of individuals, but precisely by the weak, venal and compromised. Unless you are damaged goods, the system has little use for you.
Let’s not kid ourselves; the powers behind the scenes – the ‘deep state,’ if you will – have no desire to be dragged around on a leash by a rabblerousing populist cut from the same cloth as a Donald Trump or an Andrew Jackson, especially after investing so much of their own money into the horse race. What they want is an individual who they fully control – lock, stock and barrel. What they want is a person exactly like Kamala Harris, and that should be of tremendous concern to every American, regardless of political allegiance.
Comment: Not sure I would wish for Joe’s “good health”. He was always pretty “hands on” when lucid (you know what we mean) and an outspoken advocate of the New World Order as well as being distinctly pro-CCP.
