I knew it would happen eventually. After a string of 120 days writing a Blog and recording a Podcast, I knew that one day, writer’s block would hit. Today is that day. I felt that I wanted to write about Vice President Kamala Harris and her struggle with the Border Crisis. That effort is an important story to explore. Unfortunately, Kamala Harris is a tough person to write about because it is such a negative storyline. I see nothing in her resume that would qualify her to hold the Vice President slot. She was the least likely person in the Democrat field to be called on to run with Biden. She checked off boxes which made her the choice. Woman, check. Black, check. From a high-profile state, check. That’s it. That is all she brought to the table. She had never earned a job in the past, and her current job is no exception. She has no place in Washington, just waiting for Joe to move over and let her into the big seat.
Harris held a meeting today to “discuss the Northern Triangle” with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus members. Of course, the meeting could not move forward without the Vice President breaking into her signature cackle. It is so disturbing to know that everything makes the Vice President laugh uncontrollably.
It seems like months ago that President Biden charged Vice President Harris with the task of getting the flow of illegals across our Southern Border under control. In that timeframe, the last two months have seen record numbers of Border Control interactions with crossers and the number of unaccompanied minors.
The Biden Administration has deflected most of the scrutiny regarding the Border by blaming it on Trump, poverty and lack of opportunity in Central America, climate, everything but the truth. Joe Biden invited them to come. He promised them that they would be welcome and eventually be given citizen status. The Biden Administration, and the point person, Kamala Harris, have no intention of curbing the flow or closing the Border. They welcome the influx of illegals.
So here is a video of Harris moderating a session with the Hispanic members of Congress. Get out of Washington, get down to the Border, meet with the Leaders of Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Get to the root of the problem. The problem here is capability. She has not shown she is capable and, as time goes on, the reality is becoming clear to even those on the Left.
She lost me in her opening. When she began by touting the success of the vaccine program, it was apparent this was just for show. This meeting was not serious intercourse to find problems and develop solutions. This photo op was to give the illusion of effort. It failed. Kamala Harris has failed. Her 41% approval rating is probably inflated. The +/- make=up of those polled was not given, but you can be confident that it is heavy Left.
I would like to write a positive story about the Border Crisis and Harris’ efforts. The Country needs to see that the Border is under control. We will not see that happen soon. It is not in the design.
