Some people are going mad over the-so called encounter between Senator Feinstein and some children who came by to talk about energy.

Here is the story:

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein pulled rank Friday when a group of kids tried to school her on climate change.

After the group sought her support for the Green New Deal, the 85-year-old senior senator from California let them know she wasn’t about to be bossed around by a bunch of youngsters.

“You know what’s interesting about this group?,” Feinstein said, in an interaction that was captured on video. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing.

“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.”

Thank you, Senator Feinstein.  Glad to see that there are still adults in that party!

For way too long, the left has been using children to promote their policies, from DACA to green energy to gun control to telling us that the polar bears will die from global warming.   We are seeing that down at the US-Mexico border where children are used to promote open borders.

Finally, someone in the Democrat Party has reminded kids that they should listen rather than lecture.

It’s great to see young people involved in politics.  However, they need to be reminded that some grandmothers don’t like opinionated brats or the adults that put them up to this.

Maybe Kamala is not very good on her feet

leave a comment »

Identity politics, plus a terrible banking crisis in the last 30 days of the 2008 campaign, gave us President Obama.

Identity politics has now given us Senator Kamala Harris of California.

Is she a good presidential candidate?  Is she capable of thinking on her feet?  Is she too eager to please the leftist corner to make it all the way?

Over the last month, we’ve seen Senator Harris step in you know what a few times, as Matthew Continetti wrote:

What trips up Kamala Harris is an evident desire to please her audience. 

She wants no enemies to her left, no identity politics left untouched.  She can’t run as a prosecutor — crime fighting is so 1990s — but she can run as brash, bold, and woke. 

Her verbal miscues are possible evidence that this latest political fashion doesn’t quite fit. 

She has made a habit of making unforced errors, and the game is only in its first month.  Harris’s Democratic opponents may be too blinkered or bashful to exploit this weakness. 

That will not be a problem for her Republican opponent.

Yes, especially with President Trump as her opponent or V.P. Pence in a debate if she is V.P. Biden’s choice as a running mate.

To be fair, it’s early, and she could learn to be more disciplined down the road.  At the same time, she may not.

Her first mistake was to call for the end of private insurance, an issue that makes no sense to millions of Americans who get it that way.

Her silly comments about smoking pot were just pandering of the worst kind.  Even her father got angry with her!

Her dancing around the Jussie Smollett hoax was incredible.

As with Senator Obama in 2008, the media will fall in love with Senator Harris if she is on the ticket.  Unlike 2008, President Trump is not Senator McCain and will challenge her and force her to make more mistakes on her feet.
