But she’s also a massive believer in the “climate change” hoax and has signed onto Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s country-ending “Green New Deal” that would cost tens of trillions of dollars, devastate our economy, and put half the country in poverty.
And if you don’t go along with her climate change nonsense, then she just might want to put you in jail if she becomes president (and she will if the senseless Joe Biden beats President Donald Trump in the fall because he can’t govern so Harris will as his VP).
“U.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) on Monday announced the Climate Equity Act, a draft legislative proposal to ensure that the United States government makes communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis the foundation of policy related to climate and the environment, including the policies to build a Green New Deal,” her U.S. Senate website noted in July 2019. “To that end, frontline community leaders will have an opportunity to provide feedback on this legislative proposal prior to its formal introduction this fall.”
Called the “Climate Equity Act,” it is a “proposal to achieve that third key principle of justice for frontline communities to guarantee that the policies comprising a future Green New Deal protect the health and economic wellbeing of all Americans for generations to come.”
What is this gobbledygook? What are ‘frontline communities?’ What ‘principle of justice’ is she referring to? What does a climate bill have to do with “the health and economic wellbeing of Americans for generations to come?” (Related: Kamala Harris insists that government should dictate how much red meat you are allowed to consume.)
Harris has never been forced to answer those questions, and she’s not going to be forced to answer them because as usual, the hapless, garbage media is already on-board with her and Biden, because they’re Left-wing Democrats, and details about massively expensive programs don’t matter. We’re just supposed to shut up and let them handle things.
As for her lawfare against ‘climate skeptics,’ Harris was part of the 2016 AGs United For Clean Power, an effort to “Defend Climate Change Progress Made Under President Obama.” They used the executive powers of their own offices to thwart the will of Americans who put President Trump into power, Watts Up With That reported.
Luther Strange, the AG for Alabama who was opposed to the group Harris belonged to, noted in an open letter that the AGs United for Clean Power group “raises substantial First Amendment concerns.”
“We all understand the need for a healthy environment, but we represent a wide range of viewpoints regarding the extent to which man contributes to climate change and the costs and benefits of any proposed fix,” he wrote. “Nevertheless, we agree on at least one thing— this is not a question for the courts. Using law enforcement authority to resolve a public policy debate undermines the trust invested in our offices and threatens free speech.
“We are concerned that our colleagues’ investigation undermines the trust the people have invested in Attorneys General to investigate fraud. Investigatory subpoenas were issued to at least one company and one non-profit believed to have made statements minimizing the risks of climate change,” Strange continued.
“At the press conference, one of our colleagues noted that “[w]e are pursuing this as we would any other fraud matter,” he added.
Did you catch that? Harris’ group of AGs claim that companies targeted by their Left-wing climate activism were suspected of fraud — that is, of not being honest and truthful about ‘climate change.’
It’s not clear what kind of legal ground Harris would be on if she, as president, attempted to have Americans charged with ‘fraud’ because they disagree that cattle methane and SUVs are changing our weather patterns.
But the fact that she would try is extremely disconcerting.
