Kalamity Kamala strikes again

Yesterday, Vice President Kamala Harris was at South Carolina State University for its Fall Convocation.

Devotees of Harris's notorious word salads were not disappointed, as she schooled everyone about community banks with the following:

We invested an additional 12 billion dollars into community banks. Because we know community banks are in the community and understand the needs and desires of that community as well as the talent and capacity of community.

Surprisingly, the White House transcript didn't reflect her syllabic struggle and transcribed it as follows:

We have invested $12 billion in community banks, which specialize in lending to minority and rural communities. But we need you to then access that capital, to build a business, to be invested in your community, to allow you to buy a home and be part of the leadership of neighborhoods and society.

The transcript explicitly mentions laughs and applauses.  Harris's struggle to pronounce "welcome," is factually recorded as "welc- — welcoming." 

However, Harris's incoherence was sorted out.

The function of a transcript is not to interpret, but to factually record the utterances and the occurrences around them.

This is another instance of blatant falsehoods from the Biden administration, but considering their monumental catastrophes, this is a micro-mini-scandal.

Was this just a rare stumble over sentences for Harris?

Time to revisit the ignominious record of the serial assailant of the English language.

Earlier this month, Harris spoke at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

These weren't sentences; they were a random assortment of words.

First, she tried to explain the workings of the council.

Next, she weighed in on visiting the moon.

Her final assault was on astronauts in space.

On the rare occasion when she is lucid, she is mendacious.

She claimed the U.S. border is secure, despite the serious border crisis where more than 1.7 million migrant encounters occurred in 2021, and more than 2 million in 2022. 

Last month, at an Oakland Generation Fund event, Harris, muddled her way around words to explain the concept of equity.

In July, at the American Rescue Plan Workforce Development Summit, her verbal inabilities were on display when she explained the significance of transportation.

"You need to get to go and need to be able to get where you need to go to do the work and get home."

Also in July, during a TV interview, the high priestess of inarticulateness prattled on when asked about the failure of Democrat presidents and Democrat-controlled Congresses to codify abortion rights during the 50 years that Roe v. Wade stood.

"I do believe that we should have rightly believed, but we certainly believe that certain issues are just settled. Certain issues are just settled."

Meanwhile, even the poorest among public speakers compensate for their lack of talent with efforts to pay tributes to the victims of a tragedy. 

But Harris didn't blemish her disgraceful record of incoherence during the aftermath of the July 4 parade shooting in Highland Park, Illinois.

On the Juneteenth holiday, she achieved the seemingly impossible by constructing comprehensible sentences devoid of gratuitous word repetitions.  Once again, they were also devoid of facts.

Harris claimed that America had "400 years of slavery."

The fact is it has been 400 years since slavery began in America.  Perhaps, like school-going children, she confused her prepositions, replacing "of" with "since."  Most importantly, she failed to mention that slavery lasted for 246 years, beginning in 1619 and ending in 1865 after the Thirteenth Amendment was passed.

In May, Harris vanished into a jungle of words expounding on the importance of teamwork to an audience at the ASEAN Summit.

Harris was prolific in March.

During a meeting with the Jamaican premier to commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Jamaica, Harris's alphabet soup baffled all.

In Louisiana, Harris waged war on the English language to explain the metaphysics of time.

During a presser with Polish president Andrzej Duda in Warsaw, Harris cackled in response to a question about the U.S.'s commitment to accepting Ukrainian refugees:

In January during an interview on NBC News, Harris meandered confusedly in response to elementary questions about Biden's failing strategy to combat COVID-19:

Last October, Harris hammed it up in a NASA video to promote scientific aptitude among young children.

Last August, Kamala displayed grave insensitivity by resorting to laughter in response to a question about Biden's hasty and ill planned withdrawal from Afghanistan.  The BBC said Harris made America appear like an "incompetent, uncaring, and unreliable ally."

Last June, Harris babbled incoherently in response to a question about her reluctance to visit the U.S.-Mexico border despite being assigned the task of resolving the border crisis.

It is important to remember these were scheduled appearances with sympathetic audiences and interviewers.

She could have read off a teleprompter or from notes for her public addresses. She could have been prepared for the interviews.

Her absence of talent is compounded by her deficiency in effort and apathy towards her job. She has an inflated opinion of her own ability, hence the unwillingness to prepare.

Why was Kamala chosen as Biden's running mate?

Biden's rapidly declining cognitive abilities were obvious since his 'campaign' began.

When the discussion about his running mate began, Stacey Abrams volunteered for the job.

But Biden's handlers knew that upon being "elected," Abrams would immediately evict Joe and Jill from the White House using the 25th Amendment.  Abrams would then pose gleefully from her Oval Office and would have been celebrated as the first black female president.  Anyone who didn't celebrate would be accused of racism.  She would have claimed she had saved America from a senile racist Biden.

Anyone with moderate abilities would have done the same.

Biden's handlers hence needed someone completely devoid of abilities and initiative as his running mate.

Harris fit the bill perfectly here.  She is also a woman "of color," which means Stacey or the rest cannot claim racism or sexism.

Harris was venerated by coastal "elites" when Biden declared her his running mate.  There were fawning op-eds, celebrating her achievement and abilities.

To dispel the illusion of her eminence, Biden's handlers immediately assigned Kamala the task of resolving the border crisis, which is light-years away from her abilities.

This was a trap. 

If Harris had even pretended to resolve the crisis, she would be attacked by her open border–advocating left.  Now that she failed abjectly, she is being denounced by the right.

Biden's handlers didn't have to do much after that.  They just had to give her a speaking assignment, and she imploded.

Her inabilities and relentless verbal struggles, despite her functioning cognitive abilities and mental faculties, made a man with early dementia appear the sharper one.

Even Democrat mouthpieces that urge Biden to not seek re-election in 2024 explicitly state that Harris is more unpopular than Joe — i.e., she isn't worthy of the top job.

Harris has made Biden appear unimpeachable.  This is "mission accomplished" for Biden's handlers.

It was a shrewd and cynical political move, but it make an absolute mockery of the highest office of the nation and diminished the nation.
