The father of Sen. Kamala Harris has gone public with a shocking family secret that could end her 2020 presidential run.
Harris’ father, Stanford University economics professor emeritus Donald Harris, published an op-ed in Jamaica Global Online detailing how the Harris family used to own slaves.
Here’s part of what Donald Harris wrote in the piece:
My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me).
The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
Looking back now I can say, with certainty and all due credit to Miss Iris, that it was this early intimate exposure to operation of the sugar industry at the local level of small-scale production with family labour and free wage-labour, coupled with my growing curiosity about how these things came to be, that led me, once I started reading about the history of Jamaica, to a closer study of the sugar industry.
I came then to understand its origin as a system of global production and commerce, based on slave labour, with Jamaica as a key component of that system from its very start.
That’s certainly a chilling admission and would not sit well with many American voters if true.
Soon after Donald Harris published the bombshell piece, PJ Media published a well-research, in-depth report providing more information on the slavery Harris’ family allegedly oversaw.
Hamilton Brown was born in 1776 in Ireland. He became a sugar plantation owner and founder of Brown’s Town in Jamaica, according to university papers, textbooks, and historical documents. Henry Whiteley wrote a pamphlet entitled “Three months in Jamaica in 1832, Comprising a Residence on a Sugar Plantation,” where he describes Brown’s views on his slaves:
The same day I dined at St. Ann’s Bay, on board the vessel I arrived in, in the company with several colonists, among whom was Mr. Hamilton Brown, representative for the parish of St. Ann in the Colonial Assembly… I was rather startled to hear that gentleman swear by his Maker that that Order should never be adopted in Jamaica; nor would the planters of Jamaica, he said, permit the interference of the Home Government with their slaves in any shape. A great deal was said by him and others present about the happiness and comfort enjoyed by the slaves, and the many advantages possessed by them of which the poor in England were destitute. Among other circumstances mentioned in proof of this, Mr. Robinson, a wharfinger, stated that a slave in that town had sent out printed cards to invite a part of his negro acquaintance to a supper party. One of these cards was handed to Mr. Hamilton Brown, who said he would present it to the Governor, as a proof of the comfortable condition of the slave population.
But later that day, after he witnessed slaves being punished by Brown’s overseer, Whiteley wrote:
The first was a man of about thirty-five years of age. He was what is called a pen-keeper or cattle herd; and his offence was having suffered a mule to go astray. At the command of the overseer he proceeded to strip off part of his clothes, and laid himself flat on his belly, his back and buttocks being uncovered. One of the drivers then commenced flogging him with the cart whip. This whip is about ten feet long, with a short stout handle, and is an instrument of terrible power. It is whirled by the operator round his head, and then brought down with a rapid motion of the arm upon the recumbent victim, causing the blood to spring at every stroke. When I saw this spectacle now for the first time exhibited before my own eyes, with all its revolting accompaniments, and saw the degraded and mangled victim writhing and groaning under the infliction, I felt horror-struck. I trembled and turned sick; but being determined to see the whole to an end, I kept my station at the window. The sufferer, writhing like a wounded worm, every time the lash cut across his body, cried out, “Lord! Lord! Lord!” When he had received about twenty lashes, the driver stopped to pull up the poor man’s shirt (or rather smock frock), which had worked down upon his galled posteriors. The sufferer then cried, “Think me no man? Think me no man?” By that exclamation I understood him to say, “Think you I have not the feelings of a man?” The flogging was instantly recommenced and continued; the negro continuing to cry “Lord! Lord! Lord!” till thirty-nine lashes had been inflicted. When the man rose up from the ground, I perceived the blood oozing out from the lacerated and [illegible] parts where he had been flogged; and he appeared greatly exhausted. But he was instantly ordered off to his usual occupation.
Whiteley’s account goes on, describing one victim after the next, including women and young boys. It is truly sickening to read. Brown didn’t stop after the Jamaican slaves were freed. He attempted to make the Irish work on his plantation but failed when he was accused of trying to enslave more people. The historical accounts are so detailed that should Kamala Harris want to search out the families of the people her relative reportedly tortured, she would probably be able to find them.
If the reports are true that Harris’s family previously owned slaves, that could sink her 2020 presidential aspirations or greatly harm her campaign.
President Trump Just Made Trey Gowdy The Most Powerful Man In Capitol Hill
For five years, Trey Gowdy asked the Oval Office for the tools necessary to do his job properly, and for five years he was told “no” by the Obama administration.
One of the most difficult parts of Trey Gowdy’s job as congressional inquisitor is security clearance. When investigating people who held titles like “Secretary of State” and “Special Aide to the President” or even “President,” Gowdy runs into the issue of security clearance all the time.
It’s a matter of national security” has become a term Mr. Gowdy hears far too often. It is the single-best excuse Hillary Clinton and her lawyers have been able to come up with when they don’t have an actual answer to his questions.
President Trump has just removed that blockade. By executive order, Trey Gowdy has been given the highest security clearance possible. He could now sit in on presidential intel briefings if he felt he needed to.
California Democrat Arrested for Death Threats Against Trump’s FCC Chief and Family
A California Democrat was arrested Friday in Los Angeles for his threats to kill Trump administration FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, for his role in the Federal Communications Commission’s repealing of net neutrality regulations. The suspect threatened to kill Chairman Pai’s family, as well.
According to the prosecutor, 33-year-old Markara Man of Norwalk, California allegedly emailed messages to Chairman Pai’s three email accounts.
The first of three email messages accused Pai of being responsible for the alleged suicide by a child who was upset with the repeal of net neutrality regulations.
The second email contained the addresses of three locations in or around Arlington, Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C., and stated that he would kill the Chairman’s family members.
The third email had no text in it, but it did include an image depicting Chairman Pai and, in the foreground and slightly out of focus, a framed photograph of the FCC chairman and his family.
FBI agents were assigned to the case and traced the emails to Markara Man’s known residence in Norwalk, California. When the FBI agents initially confronted the suspect in May 2018, the suspect admitted to the agents that he indeed sent out email threatening Chairman Pai’s family. He attributed the motive for email threats to his anger over the repeal of the net neutrality regulations. He stated that he wished to “scare” Chairman Pai.
“Man was charged with threatening to murder a member of the immediate family of a U.S. official with the intent to intimidate or interfere with such official while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with the intent to retaliate against such official on account of the performance of official duties,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, a recent Trump appointee.
If convicted, Man faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
According to Nancy McNamara, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, “The FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, the Federal Protective Service, and the Arlington County Police Department provided significant assistance in this investigation.”
“The concept of Net Neutrality lies at the heart of the Federal Communication Commission’s ongoing efforts to regulate Internet access. To its opponents, Net Neutrality is an Orwellian euphemism for regulatory overreach, couched in appealing language about the freedom of the Internet,” said technology expert John Hayward in Human Events.
Deep State Espionage: Obama Intelligence Chiefs Hacked Computer Of FISA Court Judge
With so much of the news coverage in America focusing on the Democratic Party’s plans to impeach President Donald Trump, as well their goal of raising taxes on the productive members of society in order to pay-off unproductive members who rely on socialist programs to barely survive, it’s no wonder most citizens don’t know what’s happening within the Deep State.
Case in point: There is now evidence being circulated by lawmakers in both Houses of Congress that strengthens allegations that former President Barack Obama’s two top intelligence officials, John Brennan and James Clapper, spearheaded the hacking of a computer used by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court’s Judge Reggie Walton, and went as far as hacking U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
As more and more documents are released or leaked that are exposing the alleged Justice Roberts computer hacking by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) has rocked the corridors of power, but appears to be of little interest to the nation’s news people .
The fact that no court has held hearings regarding the obviously fraudulent FISA warrant applications to spy on lower-level Trump campaign worker Carter Page — and by extension other members of President Trump’s team — continues to be ignored by most news organizations who’ve decided changing American is more important than informing Americans.
And there’s more: James Comey’s henchmen at the FBI are proven to have covered it up. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has shown itself to be a hotbed of political treachery and narcissistic behavior.
One of the audio tapes made public by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow revealed that Brennan and Clapper particularly targeted and wiretapped Donald Trump a “zillion times.” Montgomery also contends that the government can plant files such as child pornography or state secrets on a target’s computer, setting up the owner of that device for blackmail or a bogus prosecution.
That hacking system, known as THE HAMMER, according to the audio tapes, accessed the phone calls, emails and bank accounts of millions of ordinary Americans. The tapes also reveal that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court (FISA), Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, 156 other judges, members of Congress, and Donald J. Trump were targeted by the Hammer.
The tapes released by Federal Judge G. Murray Snow show real estate billionaire Timothy Blixseth explaining Brennan and Clapper’s surveillance program to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and detective Mike Zullo. The existence of this surveillance program has been corroborated by Wikileaks’ “Vault 7” release and by the public comments of former CIA and NSA contractor Dennis Montgomery, who says he worked on the program for Brennan and Clapper.
Montgomery has gone public with his claims exposing how the program was used to spy on President Donald Trump when he was a private citizen. Montgomery has gained immunity and desperately wants House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes or other lawmakers to call him to testify about what he knows.
On the explosive tapes, Blixseth walks Arpaio and Zullo through the details of the program on a computer screen. At one point, the three begin pulling up specific names of targeted individuals.
“You know who that guy is? That’s the head of the FISA court they hacked into, Reggie Walton,” Blixseth tells the investigators.
“John Roberts, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, was hacked,” Blixseth tells Arpaio and Zullo.
Insiders have always been skeptical of Roberts’ motives for siding with President Obama on the 2012 Obamacare case. While there’s still no available evidence that Roberts was blackmailed, the allegation that he was “hacked” by Obama officials provides some more context into the justice’s controversial career.
It’s believed that former FBI Director James Comey seized, destroyed or buried information that demonstrated this wide-ranging government surveillance operation targeting Donald Trump before he became president.
The founder of Judicial Watch and later Freedom Watch USA, Larry Klayman, attorney for former NSA and CIA contractor and whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, delivered to the FBI 47 hard drives and data amounting to more than 600 million pages of documentation on the surveillance scheme. Then-FBI director James Comey’s general counsel James Baker took the data into his possession, according to multiple sources. But despite possessing Montgomery’s bombshell whistleblower revelations, Comey never acted on or publicized the information.
Democrats Spend Father’s Day Attacking 13-Year-Old Barron Trump
As Americans celebrate the holiday of Father’s Day there are some that are using the occasion to rag on 13-year-old Barron Trump.
The reason they have given for their attacks is the fact that President Donald trump had a busy Father’s Day which started with him tweeting about things that were on his mind.
“Happy Father’s Day to all, including my worst and most vicious critics, of which there are fewer and fewer. This is a FANTASTIC time to be an American! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!” he said in one tweet, The Hill reported.

Then the president spent some time golfing with Sen. Lindsey Graham because, as the leader of the free world, he has some business to do.
“According to the White House pool, it appears the president is going to be spending Father’s Day golfing with Lindsey Graham,” Roll Call reporter Niels Lesniewski said.

The fact that his dad is busy on Father’s Day could have bugged Barron, and Democrats used that to needle him more.
Should children be off limits?

Why is it that the same people that were rightfully angry when the Obama kids were mentioned in negative ways have no problem using Barron Trump as one of their props? Stop being a hypocrite it’s an awful look.

Has Melania told him that they have a son? Perhaps Barron might enjoy the afternoon of golfing.

It is not the first time Barron has been attacked or harmed by Democrats. He was frightened when he caught a glimpse of Kathy Griffin holding his dad’s mock severed head.
And there was the time Democrats were thrilled at the idea of Barron becoming gay and marrying a Mexican immigrant.
Nothing is off limits for these people.
