Despite a moderator from the establishment media continually interrupting and talking over Vice President Mike Pence, the Republican soundly defeated California Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris in Wednesday night’s debate. While moderator Susan Page didn’t show the same kindness to VP Pence, she avoided pressing Harris on questions she dodged. Many of which, voters have repeatedly signaled are central to the election and future of the country. These are the questions Senator Harris dodged and why.
1: Would you impose new lockdowns for businesses and schools and hotspots, a federal mandate to wear masks?
Rather than answer the question directly, Harris misled viewers by claiming she and Joe Biden had a plan to keep Americans safe that the current administration does not. She then laid out a plan that mirrors precisely what President Trump and Vice President Pence have been doing since the beginning and outlined for the future. In terms of shuttering businesses and schools the way Democrat governors such as Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and New York’s Andrew Cuomo desire, Sen. Harris tried to tug at the heartstrings by talking about American lives lost to the China virus.
Would Harris and Biden lockdown businesses and schools?
“I would shut it down,” Biden said last week on CNN in a joint interview with Harris.
2: Have you had a conversation or reached an agreement with Vice President Biden about safeguards or procedures when it comes to the issue of presidential disability?
The establishment media has refused to acknowledge that Pres. Trump enjoys reasonably good health for a man in his 70s. Fake news outlets, such as CNN, have called presidential physicians liars for delivering consistent, fact-based reports. By that same token, Biden has undergone brain surgery, routinely gets confused about what office he is running for, and where he is speaking.
Sen. Harris completely avoided the question, ticked off her resume highlights, and waxed poetic about her life. This was part of her answer to Biden’s obvious cognitive disability.
“I thought about my mother, who came to the United States at the age of 19, gave birth to me at the age of 25 at Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, California. And the thought that I’d be sitting here right now, I know, would make her proud. And she must be looking down on this,” Harris said.
3: What exactly would be the stance of a Biden-Harris administration toward the Green New Deal?
Sen. Harris spoke directly to the voters saying, “So, first of all, I will repeat, and the American people know that Joe Biden will not ban fracking. That is a fact. That is a fact.”
But when asked by CNN’s Dana Bash and others whether fossil fuels have any place in America, Biden said, “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel.” Sen. Harris is also on the record with CNN, saying that “There’s no question. I’m in favor of banning fracking.”
Beyond crushing the U.S. energy sector that employs more than 2.3 million people, Sen. Harris was the co-sponsor of the Green New Deal with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She shied away from telling the truth about the framework on the Biden-Harris website on the debate stage. She also failed to mention that when the Green New Deal was brought to a floor vote in the U.S. Senate, not a single Democrat voted to pass the legislation. In fact, she voted “present” on her own bill.
And if you had any doubts about how biased moderator Susan Page was, who let Harris get away with not answering these questions, you should now she went on CNN following the broadcast and participated in a Pence-bashing segment.
