Kamala Watch

#1 Post by BackInTex » Tue Jun 08, 2021 5:34 am

This should be a good thread as we can all help each other find the VP and understand what she is doing. I can't figure it out, so please help.

It has been 76 days since the president named her as the "in charge" of the border crisis. So far she's made a phone call and taken a trip, not to our border where the crisis is, where US Federal "boots on the ground" folks are who report to her and the president, but to Guatemala, a country representing a small percentage of those illegally entering our country.

She did say "please don't come" while her administration continues to send the message otherwise by offering incentives.

She wiped her hand off after shaking the hand of a foreign dignitary.

She insults the country she visits by blaming her administration's escalation of the border crisis on their corruption (essentially calling the country she's visiting a shithole), but also climate change. :roll:

I'm sure she has other accomplishments, so help a guy out by listing them and let's keep track of our potential future president.
In the end, they will all pretty much taste the same.

I'm so glad you're privy to all of Kamala Harris's private discussions and meetings. I know we didn't get a Ted Cruz riverboat photo op, but I prefer someone who works instead of grandstands. The largest percentage of immigrants coming from Mexico actually originated in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, so Harris is trying to address the root cause of the immigration problem. Her discussions with the Guatemalan president have gotten farther than those with the leaders of the other two countries, who are involved in a lot of the criminal activities going on. They also rate to be more useful, since Guatemala is the only one of those countries that shares a border with Mexico, and the immigrants from the other two countries have to go through Guatemanal to get to the US eventually.

Harris has secured commitments from companies like Microsoft, Mastercard, and Chobani to invest more heavily in those countries. She also used the trip to Guatemala to announce new initiatives to combat corruption and human trafficking in the region and to help train Guatemalan law enforcement personnel in those matters. So, yes, she is doing a lot to combat the problem at the source rather than pose for photo ops at a useless wall.

Well Biden is out of it and she’s running everything and planning for the soon-to-be transition as predicted so I think it’s pretty obvious that her plate is plenty full.

Microsoft will expand internet access to up to 3 million people in the region by July 2022, as part of the Microsoft Airband Initiative. Microsoft will also expand its work with partner New Sun Road to establish community centers to provide internet, digital skills, devices, educational experiences and mentorship to women and youth in rural and high-migration areas. Second, Microsoft will build on its global skills initiative to provide access to digital skills learning paths to connect people to skills and certifications. Third, Microsoft is investing in technology to increase the transparency and accountability of government spending, and exploring the use of data science to evaluate the efficacy of interventions to address community needs.
In collaboration with public and private sector partners, [Mastercard] aims to bring 5 million people in the Northern Triangle into the financial system and digitalize 1 million micro and small businesses, leveraging its innovation and technology to improve access to vital services and drive inclusive economic growth. This includes enabling individuals to pay and get paid digitally, securely, and efficiently, and reaching previously underserved communities with technology that works on mobile phones and in rural, low-connectivity areas. Mastercard can also provide marginalized individuals with access to services like healthcare and agricultural marketplaces, and help small businesses grow with affordable tools and services. With access to financial and digital tools, and the ability to use them, Mastercard can help close the digital divide and improve livelihoods for generations to come.
Chobani’s mission is to make delicious, nutritious, and natural food for all people because access to good food is a right – not a privilege. Chobani will now extend its impact to the Northern Triangle and bring its incubator program to Guatemala, where local food entrepreneurs will get expertise and support to help them set up and scale their operations. Chobani will use knowledge from its global incubator program to determine how to best create and execute a program in Guatemala that will support local startups and contribute to regional economic empowerment.

It depends on the nature of the problem. Either way, you stop the flow before attempting any repair. Thanks for helping make my point!

Trying to fix a pipe with the water supply still running all the way to the tap is the way to get a flooded bathroom. Thanks for helping make my point.

And fabulous tax writeoffs. Altruism is great. Worked well in Haiti back in the day.

Lest you think I'm heartless I'm not. It's always good to shore up lives and improve opportunites for success.

One must also not fall for fake goodness. It's difficult to change culture, cartels, gummints to fall into place to make you feel better about yourself.

In the meantime there is a certain sovereignty issue involved.

Not a perfect analogy because the water can't be incentivized to flood Harris's house, but Harris's actions are like the home owner who has water gushing in from her pipes. Instead of turning off the water at the street and then protecting her home from further damage she calls the plumber for a meeting, meets the plumber at the water works department 10 miles away and discusses with the plumber and the water works folks the big valve coming from the large water tank to the 15 inch pipe that leads to to several neighborhoods. Somewhere miles from that valve is another valve leading to her neighborhood and on to the the valve at the edge of her property. All still open and flooding her house while she and the water works folks (who are laughing at her by the way) talk about the 15 inch pipe.
In the end, they will all pretty much taste the same.

People who spread the lie, whether they’re actually gullible enough to believe it or have some other motivation, that the Biden administration wants or is willing to permit “open borders” are the biggest culprits, whether they realize it or not.

I think you might have missed my point. But I could be wrong. Maybe I'm the one who missed your point. Maybe there's a connection between somebody saying any of those things and people showing up at the border, and it's over my head.
