    Harris: ‘I believe’ Biden accusers

      “…Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she believes women who say they felt uncomfortable after receiving unwanted touching from former Vice President Joe Biden.

      “I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” Harris said at a presidential campaign event in Nevada.

      The California senator added that Biden will need to decide for himself whether to run for president.

      “He’s going to have to make that decision for himself. I wouldn’t tell him what to do,” Harris said.

      In recent days, several women have come forward to allege that Biden has touched them inappropriately.

      Former Nevada state lawmaker Lucy Flores, a Democrat, made the first accusation last week in an essay in New York magazine’s The Cut. On Monday, Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant that Biden also touched her inappropriately at a 2009 fundraiser in Connecticut.

      Two additional women, Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill, came forward Tuesday, sharing their experiences with The New York Times.

      Biden, who is considering running for president and has led a number of polls of Democrats, has not commented publicly on the accusations since Sunday, when in response to Flores’s allegation he said in a statement that he has “offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort.”

      “And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately,” Biden added. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully…”

    “Government Attorney Hints Barr Has Reasons Not Yet Public to Drop Flynn Case suggested during a hearing on Tuesday that Attorney General William Barr relied on information not yet disclosed to the public in making the decision.

    Acting U.S. Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall mentioned to Judge Merrick Garland that Barr’s decision to drop Flynn’s case came “in the context of non-public information from other investigations.”

    BB has been giving exculpatory information out in dribs & drabs like it was being wrenched from him, he must have a reason for hanging onto it. It might be that sullivan and his scum are using Gen Flynn as leverage to get knowledge of what BB has on their messiah.

    Berryman was shot twice in the torso, according to a law enforcement official who was not authorized to comment publicly. No firearm was found on Berryman, and the official did not identify the object that Berryman pulled from his clothing.
    The Secret Service officer, who was not immediately identified, also was transported to a local hospital. He was not injured, but was evaluated by medical authorities before being released.

      I’ll have to respectfully disagree. Pence is 100% not made for debating. This will be Paul Ryan vs. Biden 2.0. Harris will wipe the floor with him, simply due to Pence being “too much of a gentlemen” to actually go after her, even though there are a billion things that are warranted.

      The debate will be the “prime-time” card the media focuses on. How well she did and made Pence look a fool and out of date racist, etc. I can see the headlines now. They will ignore the Trump-Biden debates and focus squarely on the VP debate, and damn, Pence is not up for this task.

            Agree about 2024.

            Unlike many here I don’t dislike Pence, in fact I appreciate his loyalty and steadiness.

            But he could NEVER win a national election and everybody knows it. Good person though he may be, he’s B.O.R.I.N.G. If he acknowledges this before the 2024 campaign he could be a powerful asset; if his ego prevents him from helping another to save America it will say something about him.

            I actually think he may turn out to be a decent debater. He’ll say things like: Lets look at the facts. That’s not true, here’s reality. That is false. You’re using a false premise. This is what really happened … Don’t misrepresent what I said. I see you’re desperate as you’ve resorted to ad hominems. Don’t mischaracterize what I said.

            He will be unfailingly gentlemanly and polite; Harris is not very likely to magically turn into a lady in the next month or two.

    Via Powerline Blog:

    A group called “We Have Her Back” has sent a remarkable memo to “News Division Heads, Editors in Chiefs, Bureau Chiefs, Political Directors, Editors, Producers, Reporters, and Anchors.” In the memo, the authors tell the media leaders how to cover the female whom Joe Biden will select as his running mate. They even graciously offer to provide the mainstream media with guidance as the campaign progresses. And they warn that they “will be watching you.”After the obligatory pablum about George Floyd and “inequality,” the authors provide a partial list of things they are forbidding:

    • Reporting on a woman’s ambition as though the very nature of seeking political office, or any higher job for that matter is not a mission of ambition
    • Relationships with partners, staff, colleagues and donors are characterized differently if the woman is not seen as subservient or supportive
    • Reporting on whether a woman is liked (a subjective metric at best) as though it is news when the “likeability” of men is never considered a legitimate news story.
    • Reporting, even as asides in a story, on a woman’s looks, weight, tone of voice, attractiveness and hair is sexist news coverage unless the same analysis is applied to every candidate
    • Reporting on questions of electability of women is, in itself, a perpetuation of a stereotype about the ability of women to lead
    • Reporting on doubts women may not be qualified leaders even when they have experience equal to or exceeding male leaders
    • Reporting on the heritage of black women or women of color perpetuates a misunderstanding about who is legitimately American
    • Reporting on and using pictures of a woman’s, particularly black women, show of anger at injustice or any other kind of passion in communication perpetuates racist tropes that suggest unfairly that women are too emotional or irrational in their leadership or worse “hate America”

    I would guess one of the reasons Rice was picked (along with Benghazi, lack of any political experience, etc.) is that Jill Biden saw that Rice could bring the whole Obama crew back into the administration.

    Whatever one thinks of the amibitious puppeteer Lady Macbeth Biden, she was not stupid enough to want that circus back in town.

    On the other hand, Harris would be running for presdient in 2024 the minute she took the oath as VP, and everything she did would be for Kamala, and only coincidentally for any Biden administration.

    Let’s not forget about Jussie Smollett’s curious relationship with Harris.

    .@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery,” Harris tweeted on January 29.

    “This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.”

    However, the California Dem was caught off guard Monday when asked about the latest developments in the case that has seen Chicago police pour cold water on Smollett’s more explosive claims.

    During an appearance at a bookstore in Concord, N.H., a female reporter asked the senator from California if she wanted to amend a tweet from Jan. 29, in which she said Smollett was the victim of “an attempted modern day lynching” and called the actor “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know.” Harris also has used the Smollett attack to push legislation that would make lynching a federal hate crime.

    “Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked. As the reporter specified the tweet in question, Harris appeared to look around for a campaign staffer before responding.
