  2. "So having grown up in the Bay Area, I fondly remember those Jewish national fund boxes that we would use to collect donations to plant trees for Israel,” she said at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in 2017. “Years later when I visited Israel for the first time, I saw the fruits of that effort and the Israeli ingenuity that has truly made a desert bloom.” She’s more AIPAC than J Street Since being elected in 2016, Harris has spoken twice at the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Her 2018 speech, with the California delegation, was off the record (itself not unusual, although critics of Israel were unnerved), but she gave a good picture of where she stands in her 2017 speech. US Senator Kamala Harris, a Democrat from California, speaks at AIPAC’s 2017 Policy Conference at the Washington Convention Center on March 28, 2017 (screen capture) She’s for two states — so is AIPAC, although, sometimes less than emphatically — but she doesn’t believe in big-footing either side. “I believe that a resolution to this conflict cannot be imposed,” she said. “It must be agreed upon by the parties themselves.” More than half of the Democratic caucus in the Senate gets the endorsement of J Street, the Jewish liberal lobbying group that believes pressure is necessary to start peace talks. J Street did not endorse Harris. Her only association with the group was in November 2017, when she was one of 17 local and federal politicians on the host committee (i.e., “yes you can stick my name on the invitation”) of a party thrown by J Street’s Los Angeles chapter. Harris also co-sponsored a Senate resolution in early 2017 that essentially rebuked the Obama administration for allowing through a US Security Council resolution condemning Israel’s settlement policies. She supported the Iran nuclear deal, although she was not a senator in 2015 when Congress voted on it, and is on the record opposing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting Israel. She pushed back against claims in 2019 that she was boycotting the American Israel Public Affairs Committee by releasing a picture posing with its conference activists. Harris also digs Israel’s Supreme Court building. “The beauty of the architecture and spirit of design left a lasting impression — the straight lines in the building represent the immutable nature of truth, while the curved glass and walls were built to represent the fluid nature of finding justice,” she told the J. The Jewish News of Northern California in 2016. The Supreme Court in Jerusalem, September 20, 2017. (Times of Israel/Stuart Winer) “The Court, like Israel, is a beautiful home to democracy and justice in a region where radicalism and authoritarianism all too often shape government.” She’s big on tackling hate crimes Harris created a hate crimes unit as San Francisco District Attorney and made hate crimes a focus of her work as the state’s attorney general. (Harris reported that in 2012 anti-Jewish hate crimes were the most commonplace religion-based hate crime.) One of her first successful Senate actions was to get passed a non-binding Senate resolution that named religious institutions as possible targets of hate crimes, and urged better hate crime reporting, a key demand of Jewish civil rights groups over the years. Her big sisters are Jewish Well, in political terms, anyway. In October 2016, she got key endorsements from the state’s two Jewish senators — Barbara Boxer, who was retiring and whom Harris would replace, and Dianne Feinstein, the state’s senior senator. This was important because in California’s “jungle primary” system the two top vote-getters in the primaries get on the November ballot even if they are of the same party. Harris was facing a popular Democrat, Rep. Loretta Sanchez, in the general election. AFP contributed to this report Is our work important to you?

  3. Liberal pussy Big Ten and Fudge-pac 12 are doing the Democrat National Socialist Coup Attempt #8 Shuffle... and postponing, most likely indefinitely, their Cash-Cow 2020 Season. The SEC - is Going to Own College Football This Year - Let da Good Money Roll... Ha!
  4. Harris thought Biden was a "predator" too. Convenient that she's willing to ignore that now.
  5. Donald Trump banged dozens of women while he was married. Donald Trump banged a pond actress without a rubber while his current (3rd) wife was at home with his baby. And bragged about it. So what's your point?
  6. it is a blue marble and you support handing over our wealth and treasure I wasn't afraid you closet homo. stop hiding behind it, you're an embarrassment
  7. the economy was barely alive the whole time like a negligent parent who kept her child alive barely above the abuse level
  8. The Constitution protests us from tyranny of the majority sister someday you may be glad that is the case.
  9. Seems to be another NYT - aka National Enquirer - fail. If they had a shred of proof, it would be front and center endlessly...
  10. yeah.. he freed people from prison, lowered taxes and cut regulations Your authoritarian claim is bullshit seriously? LOL
  11. and the losing president I do declare was jefferson davis!!!!!
  12. but who won THE CIVIL WAR??????????????????? I will give you a hint- his name was not spelled l-e-e
  13. From yesterday's primary, the electorate certified that biden is the official democratic presidential candidate...
  14. Coulda woulda shoulda.... all you have is magical unproven bullshit. The World Health Organization and our own nation’s Center for Disease Control both say one thing but we’re supposed to tell them to go fuck themselves and, instead, believe some interwebz Karen? that’s some funny shit. . I’d drink less of that cheap whiskey if I were you. Me? At this hour I’m almost always drinking Cazadores. Try it..., it might not improve your intellect, which clearly does need improving, but it will certainly improve your attitude.
  15. Today
  16. It's not opinion, I'm stating their data is only as accurate as the information they've received... to get the most accurate data possible, ALL people would have to be tested, analyzed, the symptomatic incubated and deaths recorded... This, and ONLY this will give you the most comprehensive accurate death to infection ratio... Refute this statement with another scenario...stating that WHO or the CDC is better or more accurate is utter bullshit... Talk is cheap as it takes money to buy whiskey...put your cash on the bar or go home...
  17. formula? no. opinion? yes. The data the world uses shows a 3% mortality rate. Your unproven opinion and your unproven data show something MAGICAL. I really don't give a flying fuck what you THINK.... if you can't prove it... if you can't prove that the WHO and the CDC are giving false information, then trot out your opinionated magic... lots of folks might believe you. I won't.
  18. "Trump doesn’t scare me. I’ve been standing up to people like him for my entire career. He’s a serial predator. I’ve spent my career putting them away." Kamala instantly attacks. Strong move. This is going to get down and dirty in a hurry. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/kamala-harris-calls-trump-serial-predator-in-fundraising-email/ar-BB17SRCv?ocid=msedgntp (Full article at above link) Sen. Kamala Harris, fresh off being announced Joe Biden's running mate, is wasting no time going on offense against President Trump as the presumptive Democratic nominee for vice president. “I know that winning this race will be a tougher challenge than any I’ve faced in my lifetime, but make no mistake: I’m not afraid of Donald Trump,” Harris said “I’ve been standing up to Trump and people like him for my entire career. He doesn’t scare me. “He’s a serial predator. I’ve spent my career putting them away,” she added. Harris' comments appeared to be in reference to the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct lodged at President Trump over the last several years, which the president has repeatedly denied. "I took on successfully, and I prosecuted the big banks, when they preyed on homeowners, I've prosecuted the pharmaceutical companies when they preyed on seniors. I have prosecuted transnational criminal organizations when they preyed on women and children. I know predators, and we have one living in the White House." The Trump campaign released an attack ad on Biden’s vice presidential pick minutes after the announcement was made Tuesday. The video concludes with nicknames for the candidates which Trump will likely use on the campaign trail, saying, “Slow Joe and Phony Kamala. Perfect together. Wrong for America.” Trump wasted no time in ramping up his rhetoric against Harris, referring to her as “nasty." "I’ve been watching her for a long time. I was a little surprised," Trump said Tuesday during a press briefing at the White House. "She was extraordinarily nasty to Judge Kavanaugh. “She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing, the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won’t forget that soon,” Trump said. The Biden-Harris ticket had their most successful fundraising day the Biden campaign has yet seen, raising over $10.8 million from grassroots fundraising in just four hours Tuesday.
  19. I don't have the data, just the formula for getting the most accurate data...which you can't refute... Until you do, I will continue to Stand Tall Freely Urinating...all over your posts...

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 

  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.

  • grgle

  • Where’s at @slideman?

  • Hola

  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 

  • By pmurT

The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

    Like Jesse Ventura said to all that would not take a chew in the movie "Predator." LF.org is a political debate forum. This chatbox just ups the opportunity to go at it. Ya'll have your political views, seems to me that ya'll should have thought these things out and be ready to battle. 

  • By teacher

    Is real time political debate a thing ya'll hide from? What do you morons do if you happen to run into some one with opposing political views on the street? 

  • By teacher

    I've never ran into anyone, in real life,  that said Obama lied. I run into folks that tell me Trump lies. I'm at work. I didn't bring it up. I don't reply, I'm representing a company. Not my place. 

  • By teacher

    Lookie there, all I have to do is get out and come back. Why is it that liberals, when they have a company man before them decide they that is the time they go off? Why would ya'll put a company man into that position?
