Kamala Harris Has Not Set a Date, Allegedly: Reason Roundup

But brace yourself for the Harris 2020 campaign to officially start sometime soon.

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/NewscomTom Williams/CQ Roll Call/NewscomHas California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris settled on a presidential run and picked a date to announce her candidacy? A variety of media outlets have reported as much, citing San Francisco talk radio station KCBS as the source. On Wednesday, KCBS reported that Harris would announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Day (January 21), "probably at a campaign rally in Oakland." Their intel allegedly came from anonymous sources close to Harris.

But today, Politico's Christopher Cadelago reports that "a formal announcement date is not settled," per "a person close to her."

Take all that for what you will. The bottom line is likely the same: Brace yourself for the Harris 2020 campaign to officially launch sometime soon.

If you need a refresher on Harris' horrible history, here's C.J. Ciaramella reviewing her newly released book.

In The Truths We Hold, Harris touts her record as a "progressive prosecutor," but the book glosses over numerous instances where her office defended prosecutorial misconduct.

Harris recounts her career as a line prosecutor in San Francisco, up through her tenure as California Attorney General and her election to the U.S. Senate. The book is a rather clear attempt by Harris to preemptively defend her record on criminal justice, which has emerged as an important issue, especially on the left flank of the Democratic Party....

What her book doesn't address, however, is the many times her own office contributed to that dark history.

And a bit more of Reason's Harris coverage:

Malcolm Gladwell is full of crap about marijuana and the dangers of its decriminalization. Yesterday, Reason's Jacob Sullum tackled a fearmongering anti-pot piece from The New York Times. But there are a lot of bad takes like it these days, including a recent New Yorker story by Malcolmn Gladwell. For some fun, see this Twitter thread from journalist Dave Levitan, which takes on the bad stats and misrepresentations point by point. A sample:

FREE MINDS

Good news for Google and free speech. From Fast Company:

For years, Google has been fighting an order from a French regulator, which tried to force the company to follow the law beyond European borders. The legal framework demands that internet companies purge search results about people's personal information. France argued that allowing results to remain in other locations made the law ineffective. Google and other technology advocates rebutted that allowing the law's scope to expand globally would allow repressive regimes to essentially erase all dissenting online content about them around the world.

Now, Google has a legal adviser to the European Union's top court on its side. More here.

    Secret Service Agent Who Decried Taking 'a Bullet' for Trump Helps Organize 'Womxn's' March

    The website says organizers included an "x" in the word "woman," "because we believe in equity and we act with purpose to make space for trans, non-binary and genderqueer persons in our name."

    The website says O'Grady "supported logistics and the leadership team directly in 2018."

    Additionally, O'Grady in recent months told other agents that she "beat" the agency's misconduct charges for the anti-Trump Facebook posts and that she planned to retire within the next 60 to 90 days when she reaches a key retirement milestone date, the sources told the Free Beacon.

    Get that retirement, girl.

    That is fucked up. Trans people want to identify as a fifth or sixth gender, and then get pissy when actual women's group won't consider them women. I don't fucking understand any of this.

  • C. S. P. Schofield||

    Transgender activism is going to blow up in somebody's face. We are already having trans who regret getting hormone and surgical treatment speaking out. The stats on post ops are horrific, too. More and more evidence is surfacing that gender diphoria is a mental condition without a cure; a flat rufusal to accept reality that is NOT helped by being humored.

    Hopefully we will shortly see the medical professionals who pandered to and profited off of this regarded as the predatory quacks that they are.

    Your Flaws Are Probably More Attractive Than You Think They Are

    False. When I look at you all I think about are your flaws. Fuckin' disgusting.

    But psychological research suggests that such fear can be overblown in people's minds. Often, there's a mismatch between how people perceive their vulnerabilities and how others interpret them. We tend to think showing vulnerability makes us seem weak, inadequate, and flawed—a mess. But when others see our vulnerability, they might perceive something quite different, something alluring. A recent set of studies calls this phenomenon "the beautiful mess effect." It suggests that everyone should be less afraid of opening up—at least in certain cases.

    It's best to avoid Google's products, especially if you're a dissenter under a repressive regime. The personally identifying information Google collects about you when you use their products can be used identify you--even if it's unclear whether Google is providing that information to the government.

    The scene where Tony asks Silvio (Steven van Zandt) his opinion on what to do about Richie Aprile (not realizing Tony's sister had already killed him), is just priceless.

    Kamala Harris does seem to have settled on an official pose. It's the classic hand to the chin evaluation gesture--like she's a talk show host disgusted with whatever the shithead on stage is saying.

    Maybe that worked with juries when she was a prosecutor listening to defense testimony trying to defend some monster. It's probably a bad move for her politically to project that image outside of California. She may not realize it, but there aren't many people out there who want to be judged and evaluated by Kamala Harris, and that's the image she's projecting.

    We're all being judged and evaluated by Kamala Harris. How's that feel? Do you want that in a president?

    You noticed that too? Heh.

    I was going to comment on that pose. the faux-intellectual wise wizard above the fray.

    Meanwhile....she's part of the rotten flock.

    That's pretty much what any Democratic Party nominee will be doing, whether they project it or not. That's what they did in 2016, and it's a part of why they lost. They didn't learn; they're still doing it.

    Obama was smart enough to keep it in check until after the election.

    I seem to recall the "you did not build that" comment was before the election. His tendency to be a scold was downplayed, not not entirely suppressed.

    In other privacy-related news, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint (through intermediaries) are selling your present location to bounty hunters, ex-landlords, abusive ex-husbands (I guess), or anyone else who's willing to pay $300 to find you.

    Although they'd promised not to do that in the past, when caught this time, they promised not to do it again--and this time, they really, really mean it.

    That's wonderful! I've had more than one former tenant leave a place very dirty or damaged. Having another option to find out where to serve them small claims papers is great.

    If Johnny Longstorso and LC1789 and John and all of the other border-wall fanatics are going to be posting every lurid story of an undocumented immigrant behaving badly, here are a few stories of undocumented immigrants behaving not so badly.

    An undocumented immigrant who was valedictorian of her high school and is attending Yale

    An undocumented immigrant who eventually became a brain surgeon at Johns Hopkins

    An undocumented immigrant who couldn't find a job, so he started his own transportation company with a six-figure income and 9 employees. But, the story has a sad ending: he was stopped for running a red light, and ultimately deported, losing his business and those employees lost their livelihoods.

    I am not going to argue that *all* illegal immigrants are brain surgeons or valedictorians or successful entrepreneurs. They also aren't *all* murderers or rapists. They represent the two extremes of the spectrum. Overall, undocumented immigrants are just people, like all people. Some are good, some are bad. It would be nice if we could just discuss undocumented immigrants as who they truly are and not try to turn them into scapegoats of everything that's wrong in America.

    Who here has ever claimed otherwise?

    The Great Liberal Lie: Illegal Aliens Commit Fewer Crimes
    The Federal Government does not release data that isolates illegal immigrants who commit crimes, they only look at citizens vs. non-citizens. "Non-citizens" is not a good benchmark because it includes both legal immigrants who have not yet become citizens, illegal immigrants and people who are here on a visa…all people in the U.S. who aren't citizens. In other words, as the federal government does not ask about immigration for its crime data (only citizen status), any study claiming that on a national basis illegal immigrants commit fewer crimes is flawed. Additionally, the federal government records federal crimes. Most of the offenses people talk about in discussions about Illegal immigrant crimes are state crimes such as rape, burglary, murder, vehicular homicide, etc.

    "If Johnny Longstorso and LC1789 and John"

    Why do so many of your comments start with you announcing your personal beefs?

    "Take all that for what you will. The bottom line is likely the same: Brace yourself for the Harris 2020 campaign to officially launch sometime soon."

    Hey Democrats, do you want another term for Trump? Because this is how you guarantee a landslide reelection for Trump...

    Jesus she is so awful that even California Dems can hardly muster enthusiasm for her. She has absolutely no chance to win a national election. Good grief.

    I'm of the opinion that Joe Biden is far and away their best option to beat Trump. Now, that being said, I'm not saying that I'd rather see Biden as President than Trump.

    The Democrats are going to have to ask themselves whether or not they want to keep shifting to the left or defend the new battleground states; Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania. Biden is the only one of the crop that keeps being named that can deliver those states.

    If Talky Joe the creepy groper is their best option, they might as well get started on their post-election riot planning right now.

    >>>But today, Politico's Christopher Cadelago reports that "a formal announcement date is not settled," per "a person close to her."
