Kamala: "Didn't Mean a Word I Said about Biden"

Long, long ago in the far-away time of 1974, Joe Biden decided a better political choice would be to side with the white folks who didn't want their kids bused into black schools, nor did they want black kids bused to the white schools.

Presidential candidate Kamala Harris had read about Biden's position on the matter and confronted presidential candidate Joe Biden in the primary debates in July of last year.

She was relentless---to the point of confusing and angering Biden, winning rave support from the anti-Biden Democrats.

Now, as the newly minted Biden running mate, Harris laughs...and laughs and says, "It was just a debate." I didn't mean a word of it.

Secular progressivism is a mental illness.

Be informed, not misled.

The evolution of Joe Biden.

Earlier this year POLITICO remembered, 

"In the summer of 1974, the freshman Senator Joe Biden found himself under siege from white suburbanites at a meeting just south of Wilmington, Del. The possibility that their children would be bused into "black schools' in the city and that black children would be bused to their schools had sent a shock wave of consternation through the white community."

POLITICO notes that for two hours Biden paced the floor in the auditorium unsure of what he believed on the issue. Finally, he decided to go with the white people, went to Washington DC, and worked for 4 years pushing legislation to thwart the implementation of busing around the country.

In a Democrat presidential debate this past year, presidential candidate Harris, took on presidential candidate Biden for his support for segregation and the fact that he worked with segregationists in Congress.

Biden had worked with and supported a measure sponsored by Sen. Robert Byrd, a former Klansman who had actually filibustered trying to kill the 1964 civil rights bill.

It was a vicious attack--the kind Harris will now be aiming at President Trump and Vice President Pence.

She told Biden: 

"It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two US Senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you worked with them to oppose busing."

Biden reacted, "I did not oppose busing in America. What I opposed is busing ordered by the Department of Education. That's what I opposed."

Message to Joe. You opposed busing in the mid-1970s. The Department of Education was not even created until 1979. POLITICO also notes in their story that Biden opposed busing broadly, not in a narrow sense.

So Biden has "evolved." Right? Who knows what he really believes on the issue. Or any issue, because to his and all progressives, values are based on political calculation first and foremost.

For the progressive, values and core beliefs are constantly evolving.

But Harris takes the cake. She "evolves" more quickly than any progressive I've ever seen.

Keep in mind that during the debate Harris said she and Biden "could not be further apart" on this issue. And she said she personally benefited from the policies Biden opposed, calling Biden's actions "hurtful."

And she said this

“It was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. That little girl was me. So I will tell you that on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate. … We have to take it seriously.”

Is she really serious?

The other night she was on CBS's "Late Show" with host Stephen Colbert who asks her how she could be "fully supportive" of Joe Biden after "landing haymakers" on him in the early presidential primary debates.

He said: 

"And now, I believe you that you're fully supportive of him. How did that transition happen? How do you go from being such a passionate opponent on such bedrock principles for you, and now, you guys seem to be pals."

In response, Harris tried to literally laugh it off as just a debate tactic, as if her broadside attacks on Biden were just stagecraft.

Again, Harris said laughing, "It was just a debate."

Colbert, who is certainly not a conservative, pressed it a little more..."Not everyone landed punches like you did, though."

Still laughing, Kamala said, "It was a debate...There were journalists covering the's called a debate."

Colbert asked, "So, you don't mean it?"

The great divide between progressives and Christian conservatives.

The divide between progressives and Christian conservatives is not political. It's a difference in one's world view. The difference touches every aspect of the individual.

There are at least four fundamental differences between a progressive and a Christian conservative.

I'll be talking more about this on our radio program today. You may join me from anywhere in the world. Here's how.
