(FreedomWire.org) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into Vice President Kamala Harris over her many failures and even speculated on what her next move will be.

Carlson said that the disaster in Ukraine is still spinning out of control, claiming it is “shocking to see Europe just lost a huge percentage of its energy supply, which is not a small thing. We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it.”

Carlson blamed Harris, who he said is not a “serious person” or someone who is capable of handling the situation in Ukraine.

“So, why didn’t we see this coming, this total loss of control? Well, because we assumed that if things were dire, serious people would be involved in fixing them, but we looked up and we saw Kamala Harris involved, and that reassured us,” Carlson said.

“Harris had just come back, where she’d been conducting diplomacy with our allies, and that appeared to be proof this could not really be a big deal. The situation in Ukraine had been legitimately serious. If the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance as now so obviously it does, of course, the Biden administration would not have sent Kamala Harris to fix it because that’s not her job. Kamala Harris’s job is to trot down to the Blue Room periodically to greet delegations of TikTok influencers or to cut occasional PSAs for the Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month, which is in February. So, we assumed she’d be working on that right now,” Carlson said.

“But averting war with Russia? Saving the civilized world? C’mon. That is absolutely not Kamala Harris’s job. That was our assumption, but as noted, we were wrong. Why were we wrong? Well, we spend a lot of time watching Kamala Harris. You probably don’t. Unless you are a junior producer at MSNBC, you’re probably not that familiar with Kamala Harris. We should say, by the way, we didn’t underestimate Vladimir Putin. We overestimated Joe Biden, but we knew that once Kamala Harris was involved, it couldn’t really be that serious and we knew that because this is what she’s like,” he added.

Former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich offered similar comments about Harris, saying her speaking blunders are a reason to pray for President Joe Biden’s health.

“Let’s be clear. Kamala Harris might be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history. And that’s why people keep resigning. If you are a national security advisor and you were competent and you worked hard and you knew what you are doing, and you watched her in Poland come up to break up laughing when she’s asked about Ukrainian refugees? You’d have a sense of total humiliation. So I’m not surprised that the particular advisor resigned. Because it’s very clear that Kamala Harris should never, ever, be allowed to leave the country,” he added.

He continued, “And I have a hunch that she is on a very, very short fuse right now because I think most Americans realize that the prospect of her being president is genuinely terrifying. I mean, it’s bad enough to think about Biden being president when he is clearly not totally in touch with reality, but the idea of being replaced by Kamala, I think, is astonishingly frightening.”

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris held an emergency meeting with world leaders after North Korea fired an intercontinental ballistic missile Friday with the capacity to strike the U.S. mainland.

The missile was reportedly launched from the Wonsan region in the southeastern portion of the country. It allegedly fell into the waters between Japan and the Korean Peninsula. 

North Korea has launched at least 88 ballistic and other missiles this year, fired an ICBM that could travel 9,300 miles or longer, putting the U.S. mainland within its range, according to Japan’s defense minister.

Both the militaries of the United States and South Korea militaries are analyzing the data, but North Korea’s latest launch — and its second this month — involved a missile that covered a distance of 620 miles, according to Japanese and South Korean officials.

“This conduct by North Korea most recently is a brazen violation of multiple UN Security Resolution. It destabilizes security in the region and unnecessarily raises tensions,” said Vice President Kamala Harris, who is in Bangkok attending the Asia-Pacific Cooperative forum (APEC). “We strongly condemn these actions, and we again call for North Korea to stop further unlawful, destabilizing acts. On behalf of the United States, I reaffirm our ironclad commitment to our Indo-Pacific Alliances. Together the countries represented here will continue to urge North Korea to commit to serious and sustained diplomacy.”

Meanwhile on Thursday, North Korean Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui released a statement in which he intimated further aggression amid a recent meeting between the United States, South Korea and Japan. 

That meeting occurred at the East Asian Summit earlier this week; the White House said that at the meeting the three nations “resolved to forge still-closer trilateral links, in the security realm and beyond.”

In his statement, Choe offered a “serious warning” to the three nations.

“The US bid to ‘strengthen the offer of the extended deterrence’ and the military activities of the allied forces around the Korean peninsula which become busy day by day are a stupid act of inviting greater instability to the United States and its Allies,” the statement read.

Choe warned that North Korea’s response to the alleged provocations “will be more violent in direct proportion to them and it will be more serious, realistic and inevitable threat to the United States and its followers.”

North Korea has strengthened relations with Russia since the invasion of Ukraine, being one of the only countries to recognize the breakaway states in Eastern Ukraine.

In September, North Korea passed legislation allowing preemptive nuclear strikes if the state’s leadership or its nuclear command are in danger. The country would never give up its nuclear arsenal, even if it faced 100 years of sanctions, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said.

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris dismissed the border crisis as “political theatre” on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” Monday.

Despite being appointed border czar and tasked with mitigating the mass surge of human and drug trafficking taking place along the U.S. southern border, Harris told Myers it was a “dereliction of duty” for Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas to bus migrants to her official residence.

“If you see a problem and if we agree that we need to address it, then if you’re a leader, participate in a solution,” Harris continued, clearly not hearing her own hypocrisy over her total and utter inaction to stop a single illegal footstep over the border.”

Thanks to Harris’ inaction, human trafficking has surged throughout Central and South America, as has the mass influx of fentanyl. Fentanyl, an opioid fifty times stronger than heroin, is responsible for a pandemic of drug poisonings and overdose deaths across the U.S., and is primarily trafficked into the country by cartel syndicates who purchase it cheaply from Chinese manufacturers.

But Harris’ solution is to create “pathways to citizenship” for those entering illegally, making it significantly easier for cartels to abuse and traffic in human lives. Though Harris told Meyers that the immigration system was “broken” under former President Donald Trump’s administration, from personal experience of the immigration system.

The Biden administration is the recording-breaking growth in human and drug trafficking, which has essentially been incentivized by their policies. Harris lied to Meyers and the American people on Monday night in all of her statements on the border. She and her administration have not provided a single solution to the crises they’ve normalized.

(FreedomWire.org) – Hollywood has officially turned on Vice President Kamala Harris and there’s no going back. Bill Maher came out and called her a bad politician before telling President Biden to remove her from the ticket in 2024.

Now the clever and ultra-liberal folks at The Daily Show ended her political career with one video. You cannot unsee the video once you have seen it. The video absolutely ruins her political viability in the future.

The Daily Show mocked Harris to her confused core by comparing Harris to fictional Vice President Selina Meyer from HBO’s ‘VEEP’ comedy. VEEP is a show about an inept politician and her inept staff.

During a panel discussion on Friday’s edition of Maher’s HBO show “Real Time,” the host and panelist Caitlin Flanagan agreed the veep would be holding down the ticket.

“What I could see is replacing the vice president,” Maher said, to vigorous applause from the audience.

“I just think she’s a bad politician.

“I think she’s a very bright person, but I don’t know- I can see them doing that because a lot of the problem with ‘Biden being old’ is- oh, if he dies, then you’re going to get this person.”

RealClearPolitics has Harris approval rating, as of last week, with a 37.8 percent approval rating, and 51.8 percent disapproving — a 14-point negative spread to Biden’s 11.

Why might she be unpopular? Maybe it’s that she can’t blame her gaffes on age — and there are certainly plenty of them, like last week’s accidental praise of our “alliance with the Republic of North Korea” during a speech in the Demilitarized Zone between our ally South Korea and their sworn enemies to the north.

Replacing a running mate isn’t unprecedented, but it is unusual. The last time it happened was in 1976, when then-President Gerald Ford swapped out the moderate Vice President Nelson Rockefeller for the more conservative Kansas Sen. Robert Dole.

To find the last time a sitting president shanked a running mate he’d been elected with, you’d have to go back 78 years to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s final campaign in 1944, in which he replaced somewhat-kooky, hard-left veep Henry Wallace with Missouri Sen. Harry Truman.

Vice presidents can have consequences, and the United States can’t run the risk of Kamala Harris being forced to step into Joe Biden’s shoes, not with the precarious situations in Ukraine and Taiwan and the economy in tatters.

(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris was mocked after mistakenly praising America’s “strong alliance” with “the Republic of North Korea.”

The latest example of Harris’ strong command of the issues came during a speech while visiting the Korean Peninsula’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) Thursday.

“The United States shares a very important relationship which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea,” she said.

“It is an alliance that is strong and enduring,” Harris added.

Her gaffe came barely 24-hours after President Joe Biden was himself confounded by events when he mistakenly gave a White House shoutout to Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN).

“Jackie are you here? Where’s Jackie?” Biden asked after thanking several bipartisan members of congress. “She must not be here,” he added.

Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) died in a tragic car accident in August.

Harris’s visit to South Korea comes amid concerns over North Korea’s escalating rocket tests and suspicions that the regime may soon test a nuclear weapon. While touring South Korea, the vice president said North Korea’s recent rocket tests are intended to “destabilize the region” and repeated the United States’ call for the “complete denuclearization” of North Korea, according to the Associated Press.

(FreedomWire.org) – Days after Vice President Kamala Harris made the astounding claim that our southern border is secure, Texas Governor Greg Abbott turned up the heat and sent two busloads of migrants outside her DC home.

Two busloads of between 75 and 100 migrants were dropped off by a metro bus stop near Vice President Kamala Harris’s official residency in the Naval Observatory early Thursday by an exasperated Abbott.

Abbott said, “it is interesting that they all are concerned about a few dozen or a few 100 migrants coming to their town and we get that many per hour and in almost every community across the border. 

“So we’re dealing with this all the time, and I’m just helping out our local communities who are located on the border.

“Sanctuary city mayors complain they are overwhelmed by a few dozen migrants arriving on buses from Texas.

“It’s a fraction of what Texas faces on a daily basis.

“We will continue bussing migrants until Biden secures the border,” he said.

During an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday, Harris said the border was secure.

Chuck Todd said, “final topic here. We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?” 

Kamala said, “the border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”

Following remarks at a White House event on Thursday, a reporter asked Harris for a comment on Abbott’s latest stunt. She reportedly “looked at the reporter and continued walking without answering.” Clearly, she was not amused.

In March 2021, in the early days of the border crisis, President Joe Biden appointed Harris to be his border czar. After increasing public pressure, she finally traveled to the border three months later. But rather than visiting areas that had been hardest hit at the time, like the Rio Grande Valley Sector, she visited El Paso, Texas, where the situation was less dire.

According to Fox News, Harris told reporters she chose to go to El Paso because that “was where a number of Trump policies, like the Remain-in-Mexico policy and child separation policies, were implemented.”

Now, fifteen months later, conditions have spiraled out of control. There have been over two million migrant encounters at the border — so far — this fiscal year. Yet the vice president insists the border is secure.

(FreedomWire) – Kamala Harris gave an interview with MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd  that aired during Sunday mornings’ broadcast of “Meet the Press,” and she claimed that the immigration system was broken but that the border was secure.

Todd broached the topic as the wide-ranging interview came to a close, saying, “Final topic here. We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?”

“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do. The first request we made, pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship,” Harris began before answering the question directly. “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”

“We’re gonna have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever. You’re confident this border is secure?” Todd challenged.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris continued, pivoting then to attempt to blame the present situation on former President Donald Trump. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix. Given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

Harris concluded by once again calling for a “pathway for citizenship” and arguing that the only reason that had not yet been done was that the leadership in border states — which happens to be primarily Republican — was “playing politics” with people’s lives.

“We also have to put in place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship. We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this [Texas] and in Congress — by the way, you want to talk about bipartisanship, on an issue that at one time was a bipartisan issue. Both in terms of Republican senators and even presidents.”

The number of migrant encounters at the southern border has smashed through the two-million mark this fiscal year, breaching the already-historic 1.7 million encounters last year, as Border Patrol agents deal with a migrant crisis unprecedented in U.S. history and one that the Biden administration has so far failed to slow.

Officials estimated in July that more than 500,000 illegals were known to have slipped past agents in FY22 so far but have been detected by cameras or other sensors. There have been about 55,000 so-called “gotaways” each month this fiscal year, and that number doesn’t include the individuals who have not been detected by technology.

The number is also in addition to the 389,155 known​ gotaways that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas previously testified there were in all of FY21. 

(FreedomWire.org) – Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard says Vice President Kamala Harris is showing outrage for Brittney Griner, but not for her fellow Americans who are sitting in prison today because of minor marijuana violations — including some of whom were prosecuted by Harris when she was the California Attorney General.

“How come you are not fighting as hard for them to be returned home and reunited with their families as you are for Brittney Griner,” Gabbard said to Fox News’ Will Cain.

“To me, the message to the American people through the administration’s actions is loud and clear, is that if you are rich and powerful or famous, then you will get special treatment from this administration. If you are not. We don’t care about you, and we’re going to let you sit there and rot in jail.”

Her comments come after WNBA player Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison in Russia. Griner was convicted of carrying vape cartridges containing cannabis oil. She’s also been ordered to pay a fine of one million Rubles.

In June, the Biden administration offered to exchange convicted Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout for Griner and Paul Whelan.

Russian official Dmitry Peskov said that “no agreements have been finalized.”

Gabbard was responding to a tweet from Harris in which the Vice President said Russia is wrongfully detaining Griner who should be released immediately.

“POTUS and I, and our entire Administration, are working every day to reunite Brittney, as well as Paul Whelan, with loved ones who miss each of them dearly,” Harris wrote on Twitter.

(FreedomWire.org) – It seemed obvious that Joe Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate was a bad idea.

The Biden-Harris White House has had over 30 senior staffers jump ship — many from Kamala’s office. The latest is Michael Collins, Harris’s director of public engagement; he follows senior aides Meghan Groob and Rohini Kosoglu, who departed a few weeks prior. Groob was Kamala’s director of speechwriting; it’s easy to understand that one, because who would have actually thought she had a director of speechwriting anyway?

“It has been a difficult decision, but I’ve decided to leave this amazing experience in the middle of August and transition to the next stage of my life,” Collins said in his letter of resignation. “I’m so grateful to the Vice President for trusting me with this privilege and was honored to support the President’s and Vice President’s tireless, committed and historic work.”

Collins had been in his position for sixteen months, and leaving now, mere months before the midterms, seems oddly self-serving. Turnover in an administration is common, but too much turnover is typically a sign of trouble. People tend to spend two to four years at the White House before moving on. The rapid turnover in the Trump administration was seen as a sign of problems, and it definitely was. So objective observers can’t deny that staffers are leaving the Biden administration at a rate that indicates all is not well — even if the administration won’t admit it. Team Kamala is imploding…fast.

One would think that Harris’s aides would tough things out as long as possible. Her being a heartbeat away from the presidency would certainly make it a wise career move to stick around, in case Harris were to take over. But clearly, no one sees that possibility as being worth the risk of sticking around.

(FreedomWire.org) – Kamala Harris on Friday delivered remarks at the 90th Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors in Reno, Nevada. In true Harris fashion, she awkwardly cackles and speaks in a bizarre way.

Harris told the mayors it’s time to push for stricter gun laws as she rattled off the usual Democrat-Marxist talking points.

“We need to take action. And we know it is even more clear this day, just after the massacre of those 19 babies in Uvalde, after the killing just two days ago in Tulsa of 4 people, and after the countless lives lost to gun violence every day on streets across America,” Harris said at the Peppermill Resort.

“So, it’s clear that we must renew the assault weapons ban. We must expand background checks. We must repeal the liability shield that protects gun manufacturers. And we must pass red-flag laws to prevent people from possessing firearms if they are a danger to themselves or others,” she said to applause.

“Let us not allow those who are motivated by hate to separate us or to make us feel fear. Let us not allow that. We all have so much more in common than what separates us,” Harris said.

Then she had these inspiring words for the nation’s mayors: “And I know that each of you is up to this challenge because – you – are- the mayor,” she said cackling.

Sky News host Rita Panahi says, Vice President Kamala Harris spoke to a room full of mayors at a recent conference “as if they’re in the second grade.”

“She seems to talk to everybody on that level,” Panahi said.
