Only in Washington DC is it okay for someone to complain about a problem they created, then attack someone else for not fixing the problem. It happens on both sides of the aisle but Democrats have become especially adept at it lately. Case in point: Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA).
As one of the frontrunners to go against President Trump in 2020, the California Senator has built much of her short career in DC around attacks on ICE. She demonizing the law enforcement agency any time the topics of border security, deportations, or illegal immigration come up. She has called for the agency to be dismantled and questions anything they do to fulfill their mission of keeping Americans safe.
That’s why it’s so disgusting to hear her badger Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to lead ICE, over the topic of negative perceptions surrounding the agency. She went so far as to try to draw parallels between ICE and the Ku Klux Klan during his confirmation hearings.
“Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels?” she asked.
“I do not see any parallels,” Vitiello replied. “That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK. Is that what you’re asking me?”
Harris, a former prosecutor and California Attorney General before becoming a Senator, seemed to be trying to trap the nominee into admitting that ICE is perceived by illegal immigrants the same way the KKK was perceived in the past.
Vitiello should have told her if those perceptions do exist, it’s because of rhetoric she and other Democrats have been spewing since President Trump took office.
Four months ago, the Senator said this:
New litmus test? Dems demand elimination of ICE amid immigration furor
On the West Coast, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who has been floated as a 2020 Democratic contender, said that the U.S. should consider “starting from scratch” for ICE — though stopped short of calling to abolish it.
“There’s no question that we’ve got to critically re-examine ICE and its role, and the way that it is being administered, and the work it is doing,” Harris said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “And we need to probably think about starting from scratch.”
It’s quite rich for the Senator to push anti-ICE rhetoric onto the public, then ask a nominee to lead ICE if he’s aware the law enforcement organization is perceived like the Ku Klux Klan. GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel called it her 2020 campaign launch.

COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
Dr. Joseph Mercola said, “Synthetic meat is the epitome of ultraprocessed food, and it seems naïve to think it won’t have health effects similar to other ultraprocessed junk foods.” For All-American REAL beef raised in pastures, sous vide, then freeze-dried for long-term storage, visit Whole Cows and use promo code “no junk” at checkout.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
