Catastrophe Kamala continues to wage her ruthless war on the English language
Kamala Harris has been the undisputed champion of syllable salads since her inauguration as vice president in January 2021.
But in recent times, her admirers have begun to lose patience.
It had been four long months since she has delivered her characteristic verbal devastation. She had almost faded away into oblivion, making few public appearances.
It led many to wonder if she had it in her to deliver her infamous alphabet soups again.
On January 31, Harris shut down all those wagging tongues as she made an ignominious comeback.
She was explaining the "clean energy economy" when she listlessly wove a puzzling web of words. She talked about "doing the work" to help businesses "do the work" for the green economy.
The next day, Kamala attempted to explain space travel to an audience that included NASA astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken. She was about to present the Congressional Space Medal of Honor to them.
She sounded awkward, patronizing, and ill prepared. The text of her speech sounded like it was written by a 4-year-old, and Kamala delivered it like a 7-year-old.
This is a good time for a trip down Memory Lane, where Kamala babbles, rambles, and giggles, as she wages her war on the English language and facts.
Last September, during her visit to the Korean Peninsula's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), Kamala almost created history by claiming that the U.S. "shares a very important relationship, which is an alliance with the Republic of North Korea."
She also struggled with elementary small talk and the comprehension of working binoculars.
Also, last September, during her visit to Johnson Space Center in Houston, Kamala said the following:
[T]he business of our work is for the council to report on the work that has occurred since our last meeting across these areas. We will, today, also discuss the work yet ahead — the work we must still do to continue to move forward.
Last July, Kamala couldn't explain the value of good transportation.
"You need to get to go and need to be able to get where you need to go to do the work and get home."
During a TV interview, Kamala rambled when asked why Democrats had failed to codify abortion rights during the 50 years that Roe v. Wade stood.
"I do believe that we should have rightly believed, but we certainly believe that certain issues are just settled. Certain issues are just settled."
The last place for a verbal calamity is a memorial service following a tragedy.
But here we are again with Kamala.
During the Juneteenth holiday last year, Harris claimed that America had "400 years of slavery" despite slavery lasting for 246 years.
Last March, Kamala, whose father is Jamaican, warred with words as she met with the Jamaican premier to commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Jamaica.
Also last March, during a presser with the Polish premier in Warsaw, Harris giggled in response to a question on the U.S.'s commitment toward Ukrainian refugees.
Last January, Kamala struggled to explain Biden's failure to combat COVID-19, during an interview on pro-Democrat NBC News:
Back in October 2021, Harris hammed it up in a pre-shot NASA video meant to promote science to children.
One wonders how bad the outtakes were.
In August 2021, Kamala cackled incongruously when asked about Biden's catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan. A BBC correspondent remarked that she made America appear as an "incompetent, uncaring and unreliable" ally.
In June 2021, Harris struggled to explain her hesitation to visit the U.S.-Mexico border despite being assigned the task of resolving the border crisis on pro-Democrat NBC News.
What is amazing is that these blunders occurred during scheduled appearances with friendly interviewers and audiences.
Kamala must have the best speech coaches and advisers, so there's no excuse to be unprepared.
The least she could do is read off a teleprompter or from notes for her speeches.
To blunder once may be a mistake; to blunder twice could be misfortune; but to blunder interminably is the result of ineptitude and apathy.
So why did Biden's handlers choose someone so obviously incompetent and indolent as his running mate?
The explanation is simple: Biden's rapidly declining cognitive abilities were obvious to anyone, including his fellow Democrats, who taunted him during a primary debate.
Biden's handlers understood that even an individual of moderate abilities would recognize Joe's shortcomings as an opportunity to conquer the White House using the 25th Amendment.
They desperately needed someone devoid of talent and initiative such that she or he would present no threat to Joe.
Kamala was the perfect fit.
She is also the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants and a woman "of color." This makes her the "first" among at least four demographic groups, which is fawned upon in liberal precincts.
Harris was celebrated when Biden announced her as his running mate and when she became the nation's first female vice president.
There were even rumors of her replacing Biden sometime in the near future.
To end this misperception, Biden's handlers assigned Kamala the task of resolving the border crisis, which is light-years away from her abilities.
This was also a trap. If Harris had even attempted to resolve the crisis, she would have been attacked by open border–advocating Democrats. Since she failed to resolve the crisis, she was derided by Republicans and looked upon as an incompetent by everyone else.
Harris's constant verbal struggles despite her functioning cognitive abilities and mental faculties have made doddering, senile old Joe appear the brighter one.
Harris has made Biden appear unimpeachable, much like how Biden made Obama unimpeachable.
Recently, the Democrat mouthpiece, the Washington Post, claimed that Harris's underwhelming tenure has left top Democrats unconvinced that Kamala has the qualities to mount a winning presidential campaign should Biden depart the stage.
Even far-left Sen. Elizabeth Warren refused to back Kamala.
There have been a few similar pieces from Democrat outlets in the past, which leads to animated discussions on Fox News and copious speculations in the conservative media that Kamala may be booted out.
But this may not be even remotely true.
We have to remember the 2022 midterms.
The Democrats lost fewer seats under Biden and Harris than they did under Democrat superstars such as Obama and Clinton during their first midterms.
We know that as in 2020, the Democrats tampered with the rules during the 2022 midterms. They allowed mail voting and engaged in other undisclosed practices to allegedly boost voter participation. We also know of voting machines malfunctioning.
But in the end, they won.
Perhaps they will follow the same formula in the 2024 elections, which will ensure that their puppets Joe and Kamala remain in power until 2028.
This gives them more opportunities to push their unpopular far-left policies, participate in optional foreign wars, and continue the influx of illegal aliens.
This new system has worked for the Democrats, and to them, what isn't broken doesn't need fixing.
While people laugh at Joe or Kamala for their rank ineptitude, the real joke is on the hardworking, tax-paying American citizen.
