Harris: ‘We’re About to Take Ourselves Off the Map as a Role Model’ if Voting Rights Bill Not Passed

Published

Now that Biden’s Build Back Better bill is off the table, suddenly Vice President Kamala Harris is zeroing in on voting rights legislation. She has gone so far as to threaten that if the United States does not pass her liberal agenda, It will lose its “role model” status.

Someone should tell her that thanks to the poor job she and her commander-in-chief Joe Biden are doing, that “role model” status has been on a slippery slope. Turns out, however, that Harris was actually tasked with spearheading voting rights over the summer.

We saw her just about as much in that role as we did in her task to tend to the border crisis, which her administration refuses to call a crisis. In an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” Harris claimed America would lose its “role model” status if Congress fails to pass the voting rights legislation.

She is pushing for lawmakers to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. “We have been a role model saying, ‘You can see this and aspire to this and reject autocracies and autocratic leadership,” she said in the pre-recorded interview which aired Sunday.

“Right now, we’re about to take ourselves off the map as a role model if we let people destroy one of the most important pillars of a democracy, which is free and fair elections” added Harris. The push for voting rights overhaul comes as liberal cities across the country are passing legislation allowing non-American citizens the right to vote.

“I’m the vice president of the United States” she continued. Beating her own chest, she stated, “Anything that I handle is because it’s a tough issue, and it couldn’t be handled at some other level. And there are a lot of big, tough issues that need to be addressed, and it has actually been a part of my lifelong career to deal with tough issues – and this is no different.”

To say it “couldn’t be handled at some other level” is not only narcissistic but also false. The “other level” hasn’t “handled” it because it’s a terrible idea.

    We haven’t been a role model for some time. Check education, healthcare, graduation rates, infant mortality rate and what people like you have done to our democracy and moral compass. So also. Name a VP that has gotten more play than you have. Why you’re the first of everything aren’t you? Maybe your coverage is a direct reflection of what people really think of you. Just sayin is all VEEP.

    26+ states have passed sensible, manageable voting rights legislation. Proof of citizenship, proof I.D., one vote per registered voter, mail in ballots by request only, no harvesting, clean up voter rolls on a regular basis. Our most precious right is being consistently abused, double voting, fake ballots (voting with an unsolicited mail in ballot, voting in multiple states. Dems like Harris want a”Third Rate America”, so we look like much of the world.

    Since the coup, we have no right to be a role model. Corrupt politicians were able to manipulate the system. Our country is sinking in their hands, how long before Americans are eating their own animals and searching dumpsters while millionaires and politicians dine in opulence.

    We’re about to wipe ourselves off the map with the Biden/Harris illegal agenda. Love to China. Hell, Milley, Chief of Staff, was colluding with demented 82 year old Pelosi and high up Chinese officials for months. That’s espionage. He promised to alert China if Trump launched an attack. He was going to WARN China so they could counter-attack or possibly attack us first. THAT IS TREASON! HE SHOULD BE COURT-MARTIALED, LOSE ALL HIS BENEFITS, AND FACE THE DEATH PENALTY!!! WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMEN!! IF HE WERE A REPUBLICAN,HE’D ALREADY BE ROTTING AWAY IN GITMO. HE DISOBEYED THE COMMANDING OFFICE OF THE ARMED FORCES- THE PRESIDENT. TREASON.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

Published

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
