VP John Nance Garner(November 22, 1868 – November 7, 1967) said that the vice presidency is not “worth a warm bucket of spit” (or “piss,” depending on the account) and most occupants of the office have agreed.
Does anyone know who Charles Curtis was? He was an American attorney and Republican politician from Kansas who served as the 31st vice president of the United States from 1929 to 1933, under Herbert Hoover. He also previously served as the Senate Majority Leader from 1924 to 1929. But more interestingly, he was member of the Kaw Nation, born in the Kansas Territory. Curtis was the first person with any First American ancestry and with acknowledged non-European ancestry to reach either of the highest offices in the Federal Executive Branch. He is the highest-ranking enrolled First American ever to serve in the federal government. He is the most recent Executive Branch officer to have been born in a territory rather than a state or federal district. So, once again the Democrats got their history wrong, in this case citing VP Kamala Harris as the first person of “color” in the Executive Branch. The United States had already elected its first minority Vice President.
It seems that in order to cover her lack of qualifications and poor interpersonal skills to be in the Executive Branch, Harris has pulled out the Democrats old tried and true reliable race card as she blames the “bad press” she receives based on her gender and race. However, Harris told her allies that the news coverage would be way different, or better, if she was a white male similar to her 48 predecessors. Yet she failed to do the jobs, with absolute disinterest, that the Chief Executive charged her with: finding the “root” causes of illegal immigration (look in the mirror), failing to visit and address the issues regarding the illegal alien invasion at the southern border(look in the mirror), nothing accomplished during the conferences with the Northern Triangle countries and failing to address voting rights. If she was white, the bootlicking dregs of the mainstream media would have raked her over the coals. But because Harris is a woman of color, the MSM constantly cuts her a huge break. Of all the things Harris complains about, they got her the VPOTUS position.
Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) stated that he called Harris to offer some advice regarding the southern border and she never returned his phone call. As reported by The NY Times, Cuellar stated: “She was tasked with that job, but it doesn’t look like she’s very interested in this, so we are going to other folks that will work on this issue.” President Donald John Trump had the southern border under control compared to the horrendous and neglectful job by the Biden administration, as they left the officers of the Custom and Border Protection to face the hatred from the orthodox, extremists of the socialist radical left, hatred from the Democratic Party and not being able to do the job they were trained for.
The ultra-liberal rag NY Times questioned whether Harris was a “Heir Apparent or Afterthought?” Additionally, the NYT wrote that the vice president’s allies are increasingly concerned that DementiaJoe relied on her to win, but does not need her to govern. And if Biden runs in 2024, will he bring Harris back? And Biden would not be the first POTUS to change Vice Presidents.
In the early days of the Constitutional Republic, the candidate who received the second greatest number of electoral votes became vice president. There were instances when the replacement of a vice president had an impact on economic and foreign policy…an interesting possibility with Harris. Here is a list of POTUS’ with multiple VPOTUS:
1-Thomas Jefferson: Aaron Burr and George Clinton
2-James Madison: George Clinton and Eldridge Gerry.
(Clinton won the re-election for Vice President, but died in office.)
3-Andrew Jackson: John C. Calhoun and Martin Van Buren
-Calhoun served as the Vice President under John Quincy Adams and the first term Vice President under Adams’ successor in the Presidency, Andrew Jackson.
4-Abraham Lincoln: Hannibal Hamlin and Andrew Johnson.
5-Ulysses S. Grant: Schuyler Colfax and Henry Wilson.
6-Grover Cleveland: Thomas A. Hendricks and Adlai Stevenson I.
7-William McKinley: Garret Hobart and Theodore Roosevelt.
8-Franklin Roosevelt: John Nance Garner(1933-1941), Henry Wallace (1941-1945)and Harry S. Truman (1945-FDR’s death April 12, 1945).
9-Richard M. Nixon: Spiro Agnew and Gerald Ford
10-Joe Biden: Kamala Harris and ???????
The decision by Roosevelt to replace Wallace with Truman had a major impact on the future course of U.S. economic and foreign policy. Truman replaced Wallace because he was a progressive liberal who was against the hard-line foreign policy taken against the USSR and was fired by Truman after making this opposition public. And now the orthodox, radical extremists of the socialist liberal left favor the draconian Communist Chinese Republic. And there were rumors that Wallace was passing on state secrets to the USSR. Now that’s Russian collusion…just like the current day Hillary Clinton Democrats!
From another historical standpoint, let’s not forget President Richard Nixon(R) replacing VPOTUS Spiro Agnew (1969-1973) with House Minority Leader Gerald Ford (R-MI). He is the second and most recent vice president to resign the position, the other being John C. Calhoun in 1832. In 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on suspicion of criminal conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax fraud. Agnew took kickbacks from contractors during his time as Baltimore County Executive and Governor of Maryland. The kickbacks continued into his time as vice president. However, they had nothing to do with the Watergate Scandal, in which he was not implicated. After months of maintaining his innocence, Agnew pleaded “no contest” to a single felony charge of tax evasion and resigned from office. And Nixon resigned in 1974 because of Watergate, while President Ford “hired” Governor Nelson Rockefeller (R-NY) as Vice President.
Now, back to Harris…who’s parents are both college professors..so she didn’t grow up poor, as she claims. And what’s more interesting is that Harris attended high school in Montreal.
So, almost one calendar year into Harris’ disastrous tenure there has been a marked lack of performance and disinterest. The poll numbers show Harris at 28% and sinking…fast. Additionally, she has staff bolting a sinking ship as they try to salvage their careers in the swamp. As reported by Adrianna Cohen of The New York Post, in recent weeks “four prominent staffers have announced their departures, including Ashley Etienne, the vice president’s communications director, and Symone Sanders, a top aide serving as senior adviser and chief spokesperson. More staff are reportedly eyeing exits.” Cohen asked what is going on? Well, each day Harris is going down in flames faster and faster. Harris has been described as a “bully” in a Washington Post report that brands her as the “common denominator” behind recent resignations of high-level staffers. Just take a look back at the way she carried herself during Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s ratification hearings. She yelled, screamed and was probably stomping her feet under the desk.
As for Harris on the ballot, DementiaJoe has hinted for a possible run for office again in 2024, when he’ll be an octogenarian, but not a word of support for the Vice President. However, there are serious issues regarding his physical health and his obviously failing cognitive abilities. So, it’s not about whether or not he’s up for it…but as previously stated, not a peep about Harris. Biden, 79, said he would welcome a rematch with former President Donald John Trump. “If I’m in the health I’m in now — I’m in good health, then, in fact, I would run again,” Biden said. He’s talking physical health vs. mental health.
The biggest, and possibly the most alarming DementiaJoe malady has repeatedly been pointed out by Representative Dr. Ronnie Jackson’s (R-TX) numerous observations that Biden is cognitively delinquent. Dr. Jackson is a retired US Navy Admiral and former White House physician to Obama and POTUSDJT. Voters should have increasing doubts about the health and mental fitness of Biden, the oldest man ever sworn into the White House. Throughout the 2020 Presidential Campaign Dr. Admiral Jackson told reporters that he was “convinced” then Democratic presidential nominee Biden did not have the cognitive ability to be commander in chief. “I’m pretty familiar with what it takes both physically and cognitively to do that job and what the demands of that job are,” Yet Biden was the Democratic nominee. This administration is a horror show with a President suffering from failing cognitive abilities…and remember that he was the “only” choice Democratic nominee.
And then the whole world gets to see the leader of the United States schedule an event at 9:30AM and then at 3:30PM. That’s DementiaJoe’s work schedule. And weekends in Delaware or Camp David. And Harris has recently complained about essentially being “anchored” to Washington. Yet, she has flown around the world, and all over the country essentially making campaign stops, on Air Force 2 and then it’s off to home on a regular basis to campaign for Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA). Additionally, let’s not forget that Harris pushed for bailing out the rioters during the Minneapolis riots during the summer of 2020, while she condoned the violence.
While Biden may very well be in decent physical shape today, there have been no shortage of concerns over his failing cognitive abilities of late, and one has to wonder whether or not he’ll possess the wherewithal to make that decision when the time comes and then do the job, which he hasn’t done yet. And if DementiaJoe doesn’t make it to the finish line, well, look at what we will be stuck with before 2024.
As Harris is interviewed and faces tough questions regarding the border for example, watch her squirm, wiggle, smirk and giggle, as she turns red with anger having a hard time answering real questions! So, the dregs of the bootlicking mainstream media report that there is tension between the two camps. So, ask yourself if Harris is the “ Heir Apparent” or an “Afterthought?” I am leaning towards the later!
