Projecting warmth toward each other, they sketched out a vision of recovery from the nation’s crises surrounding public health, the economy and racial injustice — challenges that, they argued, Mr. Trump has made worse at every turn with an extraordinarily divisive presidency. “We need more than a victory on Nov. 3,” Ms. Harris said. “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be.”What is missing here is any explanation of how Biden or Harris would do any better. It is funny how so many people say Pres. Trump did a bad job on the Wuhan virus, but they are completely silent on what he should do now. And that is how it has been for months. No one has ever been able to explain how Trump could be doing a better job.
As Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris spoke on Wednesday before a group of socially distanced reporters — not the excited crowd of supporters that would normally greet such an occasion — they each nodded to the symbolism and historic nature of the moment. Wednesday was the third anniversary of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., at which Mr. Trump claimed there were “very fine people on both sides,” Mr. Biden noted. “I knew we were in the battle for the soul of the nation,” Mr. Biden said. “That’s when I decided to run. And I’m proud now to have Senator Harris at my side in that battle, because she shares the same intensity I do.”Exactly what symbolism are they referring to? The so-called white supremacists in Charlottesville were the one objecting to whites being systematically replaced by non-whites. So Biden appoints a VP just for her sex and skin color.
The former vice president, Ms. Harris said, was the only person who had “served alongside the first Black president and has chosen the first Black woman as his running mate.” Ms. Harris, the daughter of immigrants from India and Jamaica, is the first woman of color on a major party’s presidential ticket, and she and Mr. Biden argued that possibilities for American success stories abound despite the challenges that the nation confronts. “Her story’s America’s story,” Mr. Biden said.Notice how it is Black with a capital B, and white with a lower-case w. Obama was only half-African, and Harris is even less.
No, her story is not America's story. She has no American roots. Her parents were not citizens. She got her start in politics by being a mistress to Willie Brown, an extremely successful Black California politician.
Update: This Newsweek article explains why Harris is not a natural born citizen. See also this rebuttal by an immigrant law professor. His main argument is that the logic of an 1898 decision would apply to parents on student visas, even tho that case involved citizenship and not Presidential qualifications. (The dissent did mention such qualifications.) The rebuttal does admit:
For instance, the 1797 edition of the English translation of Emer Vattel's treatise on The Law of Nations (a book that had some influence on the Framers), did say that, "The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens."
