(FreedomWire.org) – Leaked information from inside the White House reveals why President Joe Biden is reportedly furious with Vice President Kamala Harris.

Vice President Kamala Harris has become a dark cloud hanging over President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign plans, according to report.

Biden has indicated he will run for re-election in 2024 and has publicly said he has no plans to drop Harris from the ticket. A second term by a president who has already turned 80 would bring a sharp focus on his vice president, who could run the country if Biden faced health issues and was incapacitated.

The report by Reuters on Thursday summed up Harris as bringing to the campaign a stew that includes “low poll ratings, a failure to win over the Washington establishment and concern among fellow Democrats about an underwhelming start in the job.”

Harris has gained a reputation as the worst vice president in U.S. history with an approval rating of 28 percent. Business Insider reports this is a “historic low for any modern vice president.” Biden’s approval rating is also extremely low at just 38 percent.

A former White House official told Reuters, “A point of tension in their relationship is that I don’t think that the president sees her as somebody who takes anything off of his plate” due to a “fear of messing up.”

Harris reportedly refuses to take on any risky assignments.

Biden put Harris in charge of border issues in 2021, but she has notably neglected visiting the border, going only after she took heavy flak in the press and from interest groups. 

The National Border Patrol Council grilled Harris for failing to do her job and protect the border in January. 

“If you were given a job 2 years ago with the explicit goal of reducing illegal immigration, and then you sit around and do nothing while illegal immigration explodes to levels never seen before, you should be fired and replaced. Period,” the council wrote. 

A current administration official acknowledged Harris’ weakness on border issues  in comments to Reuters. “She, I think, is smart. She does not see this as a political win for her. Because it’s not. It’s a really hard issue,” the official said. 

Another former White House official said, “If he did not think she was capable, he would not have picked her. But it is a question of consistently rising to the occasion,” that former official said.

“I think his running for re-election is less about her and more about him, but I do think that she and the Democratic bench [are] a factor.”

A Democrat closely connected to the White House said there is a risk, according to the outlet.

“I think this is actually one of the fundamental strategic challenges for [Biden] … how to navigate this. It’s almost impossible for them to make a change.”

The second White House official added, “You cannot replace your first black woman vice president and think that black people and women are going to just vote for you. He needs her.”

Democratic strategist Bud Jackson said many Democrats “think that Biden is hopefully fine for another term and we don’t have to worry about the second-in-command, because I think, in our mind, Biden lasts another term and then Harris is not the preordained Democratic nominee [for 2028].”

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris got a cold reception on the third day of the NCAA’s March Madness tournament in Des Moines, Iowa when she made a surprise appearance to watch her alma mater, Howard University, lose to Kansas.

Harris, who graduated from the Washington D.C. college in 1986, received a hostile reception when she appeared on the jumbotron during the basketball game at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday.

The makeup of the crowd at the March Madness event may have had something to do with the booing Harris received.

Iowa is not Biden/Harris territory. Over half of Iowa’s voters, 53.1 percent, voted for former President Trump in the 2020 presidential election, compared to 44.9 percent of votes for Biden.

Kansas is also a red state. They almost assuredly joined in the enthusiastic booing aimed at Harris. It’s no wonder Harris slinked into the Arena instead of issuing a press release that she would be in attendance.

As the image of Harris taking in the game came upon the arena’s jumbotron, boos drowned out the feeble round of applause given to her, according to the Associated Press.

Following Howard Bison’s loss to the Kansas Jayhawks, Harris went to talk to the team in the locker room and praised the players.

“You played hard. You played to the very last second. You made all us Bisons proud,” Harris said. “You hustled out there, you are smart, you are disciplined. You put everything you had into the game.

(FreedomWire.org) – Perhaps the greatest joke of Joe Biden’s federal government was putting Kamala Harris in charge of border security, a job she evidently does not take very seriously.

But where D.C. has failed, the states are now stepping up to take matters into their own hands.

America’s VP, the so-called “Border Czar,” has essentially supervised a steadily worsening immigration crisis, offering few solutions, and even fewer coherent, well-constructed opinions. Who can forget her notorious interview with Lester Holt?

This week, The New York Times noted that since Kamala embarrassingly quipped “I haven’t been to Europe,” she has shied away from doing public interviews.

“After her disastrous interview with Lester Holt… in June 2021, in which she struggled to articulate the administration’s strategy for securing the border,” the NYT reported, “White House officials — including some in her own office — noted that she all but went into a bunker for about a year, avoiding many interviews out of what aides said was a fear of making mistakes and disappointing Mr. Biden.”

Truly, one of the most important political issues of the day is in the hands of someone who is not even capable of having an intelligible conversation with the press.

Her office has long been marked by dysfunction — according to CNN, “key West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff” — and that dysfunction no doubt marks her response (or lack thereof) to the southern border crisis.

But Kamala’s dysfunction is indicative of a much bigger problem: the federal government’s dysfunction. As I previously wrote, “yes, Kamala Harris may be bad at her job – so bad, in fact, that not even the left-leaning media can pretend otherwise – but she is simply playing her part in a broken system that is bad at its job.”

The federal government under Mr. Biden has almost single-handedly created our nation’s present border crisis. Yet despite polling that confirms a majority of voters want the president to close the southern border until immigration issues are fixed, D.C. has refused to act, condemning the American people to suffer the consequences.

But that’s where the states come in.

In response to Harris’ failed management, Texas announced it has hired its own Border Czar… notably someone who is actually competent.

“For nearly two years, the State of Texas has taken unprecedented, historic action… in response to the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border,” Governor Greg Abbott declared. “To continue doing what no other state in the history of our country has done to secure the border, I hired Mike Banks as the State of Texas’ first-ever Border Czar. As an award-winning Border Patrol Agent, with decades of federal law enforcement and border security experience, Mike is the perfect choice to oversee Texas’ fight against the surge of illegal immigration, lethal drugs, and deadly weapons flowing into our state and nation. I have no doubt that Mike’s strong record of leadership and wealth of experience will provide Texans—and Americans—the level of border security expertise they deserve from a proper Border Czar.”

This “proper Border Czar” responded: “Protecting our nation’s border is something I have dedicated the last 23 years of my life to, and I am very passionate about it. I look forward to strengthening our relationships with law enforcement partners and the community, leveraging all that we can to further protect our great state of Texas and the United States.”

Although born out of dysfunction, Texas’ efforts to combat Joe Biden’s immigration crisis encapsulate a healthy system of federalism at work — when the federal government falters, the states step in to protect their constituents. While Texas is the first state to hire its own Border Czar, other states, such as Florida, have also worked to slow down or end illegal immigration.

Unfortunately, their efforts continue to be frustrated by the federal government, which is why we need the states to exercise their authority to rein in Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the rest of their corrupt cronies in Washington. Granted in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, the states have the power to call a Convention of States where they could limit the size and jurisdiction of the federal government, place term limits on federal officials, and impose fiscal restraints on federal spending.

If Kamala has accomplished anything over the past two years it is proff that the states must assert their power over Washington.

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday celebrated the start of construction of a new high-capacity power transmission line between Arizona and California.

During her speech, Harris gave us one of her mesmerizing word salads on the marvels of the world around her.

Harris started with a story of when she was a child and the family would take road trips.

“I remember sitting in the backseat of my mother’s Dodge Dart — it was yellow; she let us pick out the color,” she said, with a laugh. “And we’d be sitting in the backseat, me and my sister, and trying to, you know, figure out how to occupy the time. I’ll date myself by saying sometimes we would occupy the time by counting how many VW Bugs that we saw drive by.”

“But also, sometimes, just looking out the window. And I remember watching the miles and miles of electric wires flash by the window. And it was — it was kind of mesmerizing to just see those lines as we were driving the roads. And those wires, they seemed endless,” she explained, in that nasally voice that can make one’s skin crawl.

Then Harris explained how electricity works.

“Well, let’s think about it. Today, America has more than half a million miles of transmission lines. Enough to wrap around the globe 24 times. These lines connect the power plants, where electricity is created, to homes and businesses and schools and hospitals across our nation,” the vice president continued. “Think about it: Every time you turn on a light or charge your laptop or plug in your air conditioner or put leftovers in the fridge, you rely on the power delivered by our nation’s network of transmission lines.”

Harris was only about 100 miles away from the border with Mexico, but had no plans to visit the border, even though she has been tasked by President Biden to investigate the root causes of the migrant crisis overwhelming border states. 

Harris defended her decision not to visit the southern border by saying,  “I visited the border. I will not on this trip, but I have, and I will again.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris did not accompany President Joe Biden on his first border trip and has apparently not led any migration-related activity for seven months, despite being tapped as the administration’s border czar.

Biden travelled to El Paso, Texas, and had a highly controlled look at the border and a migrant center on Sunday. He spoke with local officials and federal law enforcement officials, but did not travel to see the masses of migrants sleeping on the streets in the downtown of the city.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas flew with Biden on Air Force One to El Paso, and the president was met on the tarmac by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Democratic Texas Reps. Henry Cuellar, Veronica Escobar and Vicente González, as well as local officials. Harris was nowhere to be seen, and the White House did not announce she would be holding any public events during Biden’s border visit.

Besides the border, Harris has apparently been missing from leading all public migration-related events for over seven months.

The president appointed Harris to look into the “root causes” of migration in March of 2021. Harris announced in July of 2021 she would be speaking with the leaders of Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, and working with private sector leaders to allocate funds to Central American countries, according to a White House statement.

The only time Harris visited the border was in June 2021, when she went to El Paso del Norte Port of Entry. She was criticized for not going to Fort Bliss, the largest processing center in the country for unaccompanied children, and for not going to the epicenter of the crisis in the Rio Grande Valley, The Texas Tribune reported.

Under Harris’ migration leadership, the Biden administration experienced the most recorded migrant encounters in U.S. history, with 2.3 million in the 2022 fiscal year. Some illegal immigrants crossed the border because of the administration’s relaxed policies, migrants told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The last time Harris led any event related to migration was on June 7, 2022, when she announced “more than $1.9 billion in new private sector commitments to create economic opportunity in northern Central America,” according to White House public statements. Harris did attend Biden’s Thursday speech on the border, but stood on the sidelines and did not deliver any remarks on the issue other than jumping in to fill in for Biden’s gaffes.

In December 2022, White House press secretary Karine-Jean Pierre didn’t answer when a reporter asked what Harris has been doing recently to address “root causes.”

“I’m wondering if there’s any update from this side of the White House on what she’s been doing and what she will continue to do as we’re expecting an influx at the border,” a reporter asked.

“I don’t have anything to lay out specifically on what that work looks like,” Jean-Pierre responded, referring the press to the vice president’s office for more information.

(FreedomWire.org) – Fed-up Republicans are calling for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as the “border czar.” Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson introduced a resolution earlier this year, which has 26 co-sponsors, and argues that Harris and President Joe Biden have completely failed to handle the border crisis.

“Instead of working for the American people, Kamala Harris has worked against us by ignoring her responsibilities as Border Czar. Rather than doing her job, Harris sits back and watches as illegal immigration skyrockets, countless people at home and abroad are victimized by drug and human trafficking, and CBP officers are left without resources or support from the Biden Administration. Make no mistake – Harris’ approach is by design, and she must be stopped,” Jackson said.

“It is past time for Joe Biden to remove her from the Border Czar role and appoint someone who will put Americans’ interests first. A nation without borders is no nation at all. We need a real leader at the helm who will secure our southern border, and, in turn, our country’s bright future. A single canned photo op and pointless foreign trips to Northern Triangle countries on the taxpayers’ dime are not cutting it. I urge Speaker Pelosi to bring my resolution to the House Floor immediately, for the American peoples’ sake,” Jackson continued.

Florida GOP Reps. Byron Donalds and Mike Waltz also recently denounced Harris’ performance in office, slamming her “failures” as she went on a two-stop tour in the Sunshine State.

Donalds said Harris has not delivered as the “border czar,” with Mexican border policy being an “abject failure” with “anemic security policies.”

“She’s been ineffective in her primary role of securing the nation,” Donalds said.

Waltz offered similar comments.

“She’s going to the Spec Ops command to receive a briefing. I find that quite ironic and sad. I wish they had done that and listened to them before the Afghan debacle,” said Waltz. “The intelligence community is briefing us on a regular basis that ISIS and Al Qaeda again intend to hit us.”

A new report found that the number of illegal immigrant crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border for fiscal year 2022 topped 2.76 million, breaking the previous annual record by more than 1 million, according to Customs and Border Protection data.

Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar, who represents an area along the southern border, also called for Harris to be replaced as the “border czar.”

“I’ve moved on from the vice president to say, ‘OK, let’s work with the ambassadors, and let’s work with the State Department. Let’s work with the Homeland Secretary.’ I think that’s the way to address it, but I know that the media has put a lot of focus on the vice president, but with all due respect, she was given that title. I don’t think she’s, with all due respect, putting the effort in there…We’ve got to look at other folks that have the expertise on that,” Cuellar said.

Harris, who was appointed by Joe Biden to serve as the “border czar,” has been under fire over her failure to visit the southern border.

Several busloads of migrants were dropped off again in front of Harris’ vice presidential residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., on Christmas Eve.

In recent months, Abbott and other red state governors have been sending thousands of migrants north to “sanctuary” cities like Chicago, New York City, Martha’s Vineyard, and Washington, D.C., as a means of drawing attention to the chaos along the U.S.-Mexico border that they have blamed on President Biden’s lax immigration and enforcement policies.

With the temperature dipping into the teens, buses with approximately 50 migrants were expected to arrive late Saturday in front of the U.S. Naval Observatory, a source told CNN. A reporter with 7News, a local ABC affiliate, caught what he said was the third and final bus of the night, noting it came from Texas.

Video posted to social media by the reporter, Christian Flores, showed what he said were migrants picking up their belongings and boarding another bus destined for a local church. They included women and children.

Amy Fischer, a volunteer with the Migrant Solidarity Mutual Aid Network, said the organization was expecting the migrant busses after being notified by an NGO in the Lone Star State they were coming. She told CNN the busses were supposed to go to New York City but were diverted to D.C. because of inclement winter weather.

“The DC community has been welcoming buses from Texas anytime they’ve come since April. Christmas Eve and freezing cold weather is no different,” Fischer said. “We are always here welcoming folks with open arms.”

The White House lashed out at Abbott and falsely accused him of “abandoning children.”
