    Exclamation Women Rising: Kamala Harris first female, first Black, first South Asian VP, 32 GOP women win

    As Prez Trump also celeberated few days ago, more historic diversity wins during MAGA term and record number of women have been elected to Congress with many historic Firsts.
    One gender's rising doesn't translate to any other gender's "sinking", it's a win-win situation thanks in part to Prez Trump's strong commitment to diversity in America and GOP.



    Kamala Harris, Cori Bush and others who made history in the 2020 election

    Joe Biden is projected to win the U.S. presidential election, according to NBC News. With that, his vice presidential running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, has made history.

    Harris, who was born to a Jamaican father and Indian mother, is the first woman, first Black American and first South Asian American to be vice president.
    And, she isn’t the only one making history in the election. This year, a record 298 women were candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, up from 234 in 2018. For the Senate, 20 women were candidates, down from 23 in 2018, according to the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP). Of the 298 women running for House seats, a record 115 identified as Black, Latina or Native American.
    In addition to a record number of women running for office, the LGBTQ Victory Fund reports that more than 1,000 LGBTQ+ people ran for elected seats in 2020, the most in U.S. history. This means that in many states and cities, a historical barrier was broken with the election of a woman, person of color or LGBTQ+ individual.
    In Delaware for example, Sarah McBride made history by being elected the first openly trans state senator in U.S. history. And in Missouri, Black Lives Matter activist Cori Bush will become the state’s first Black congresswoman.

    “I am hopeful that tonight’s result can send a potentially lifesaving message to a young trans kid,” McBride told BuzzFeed News after her Nov. 3 win. “They can go to sleep knowing that their dreams and their truths are not mutually exclusive.”
    Take a look below to see how McBride, Bush and other candidates have made history in the 2020 election thus far.


    Harris bursts through another barrier, becoming the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect

    Sat November 7, 2020
    (CNN)Kamala Harris, who on Saturday became America's first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect, represents a new face of political power after an election all about who wields power and how they use it.


    The California senator's history-making win also represents the millions of women in the demographics -- often overlooked, historically underrepresented and systematically ignored -- who are now the recipients of that new power for the first time in the country's 200-plus-year history.
    Harris tweeted a video of herself on the phone with President-elect Joe Biden shortly after CNN projected their win.

    More women than ever before were elected to Congress — Here are their historic 'firsts'


    The 2020 election cycle has proven that the future for women in politics is brighter than ever before.

    The outcome of the 2020 election has made one thing crystal clear: women on both sides of the political aisle have won big.

    So far, women candidates have secured 135 Congressional seats, including 103 Democrats and 32 Republicans, which is an all-time record.

    The number of women in Congress has steadily climbed since 1981, when just 17 women served in both the House and Senate. In the 2018 midterms, an impressive 127 women were elected. Experts thought that spike may have been an anomaly, but the latest results demonstrate otherwise, according to experts.

    “While the 2018 gains were larger, we’re not seeing a backslide,” said Kelly Dittmar, director of Rutgers’ Center for American Women and Politics. “In order to get to gender parity in congress, we need women both to run and win on both sides of the aisle.”

    In addition to women winning a historic number of seats, there are many other “firsts,” including:
    Cori Bush is Missouri's first Black congresswoman

    Democrat Cori Bush won a seat in Missouri’s 1st Congressional District, making her the first Black woman to serve in the state’s congress. Her battle to win the seat was detailed in “Knock Down the House,” a Netflix documentary that premiered last year at the Sundance Film Festival.

    New Mexico is the first state to elect all women of color to the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Three women of color, Deb Haaland (D), Yvette Herrell (R), and Teresa Leger Fernandez (D) were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in New Mexico, making it the first state to feature a House exclusively made up of women of color.

    Yvette Herrell is the first Republican Native American woman elected to Congress.

    Yvette Herrell won the 2nd District House seat in New Mexico, making her the first Republican Native American woman to be elected to Congress. Herrell is a career politician and a member of the Cherokee nation.
    Kesha Ram is the first woman of color elected to Vermont’s Senate.

    Democrat Kesha Ram was elected as the first woman of color to serve in the historically-white Vermont Senate on Tuesday. Ram, who is Indian and Jewish, previously began serving in the state’s House of Representatives when she was only 22.
    Sarah McBride is the first out transperson senator in U.S. history.

    Representing Delaware, Democrat Sarah McBride became the first out transperson senator in the country’s history. She is currently National Press Secretary at the LGBTQ advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign.

    Republican women in Congress have reached an all-time high.

    A record 32 Republican women were elected to congress, including 13 new candidates. The number represents a spike since the 2018 election, when 22 Republican women served. This election is a historic gain for a party that has historically underrepresented women, according to Dittmar.
    Stephanie Byers is the first out trans person of color ever elected to a state legislature.

    Kamala Harris is a slut. She sucked on 60 year old, married BBC in order to get a leg up in her political life.


    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...lie-Brown.html

    How 29-year-old Kamala Harris began an affair with powerful San Francisco politician Willie Brown, then 60 and married, who appointed her to two lucrative positions only to dump her after he was voted first black mayor of the city

    • Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris dated San Francisco's first black mayor Wilile Brown in the 1990s, while he was still married but separated from his wife
    • Brown is 31 years Harris' senior and she was his 'constant companion' on the campaign trail. They met while he was 60 and Harris was 29
    • But when Brown was inaugurated in 1996, his estranged wife Blanche was by his side after 'splitting' two years prior
    • Harris has struggled to shirk her association with Brown, whom she has described as 'an albatross hanging around my neck'
    • He was State Assembly Speaker for 15 years, appointing her to unemployment insurance appeals board and California medical assistance commission
    • Brown is notorious for his love of sports cars, flash designer suits and for being named one of the world's 10 sexiest men by Playgirl magazine
    • He had also been seen with a 'succession' of beautiful women despite having been married for 25 years, being dubbed 'the real Slick Willy' by Bill Clinton

    Did not see any of this mentioned in her profile and diversity celeberation done by NBC and ABC news today.
    But they didn't mention any of her politcal stances or record either. Media may be trying to sell her like "Obama drama" who was given "Nobel Peace Prize" without even seeing any of his policies in action and presumably just based on his statements or skin shade traits.







    That said, sexual morality standards would have to be applied uniformaly for public office holders of both genders. Not long ago Christian conservatives like Mike Lee and Mike Pence had taken very critical stances on Trump conduct in this area also.
    Hopefully "alpha female" would not be becoming part of our political lexicon in time ahead.

    Not excusing her conduct and realizing that conduct in all areas of life is generally a measure of a person's character but politically speaking, 'political sluts' or 'political prostitutes' would be much bigger concern for public interest than personal private conduct that doesn't undermine public service duties.

    Yea he tries to "enhance diversity" while at the same time "enhances deficits and debts by many multitudes"... so light sprinkle of sarcasm can be thorwn in the mix.

    Diversity (race/gender/religion/lifestyle LGBTQ) is politically interesting topic for Trump Presidency labeled "racist/bigot" by media for most of his term while he compares himself to 'honest Abe Lincoln' repeatedly. I also find myself focussing on aspects of issues that are overlooked or burrried in MSM narratives. Media for most of his term failed to celeberate his Presidency as champion of 'diversity is our strength' model and kept calling him "racist" long after he had distanced himself from 2016 'birther certificate' play and switched to 'social justice' messaging after winning election. But often his statements are inconsistent too, plenty of room for legitimate criticism especially when I see him drifting in wrong direction on other important policy issues.
    Although in the past for a short period I went along and supported Obama in 2008 when left wing liberals came up with a historic play to "politically punish" Bush-Cheney supporting GOP bases as America was swept by anti Iraq war sentiment wave, celeberating diversity alone on the basis of race/skin shade/gender etc if it is not competence and merit based is counter productive imo. Diversity of ideas in an equal opportunity environment is ideal. But media, politicians play this game, so have to discuss top headlines being served to the public.

    Diversity in ideas tends to be anathema in the current political environment. There most certainly seem to be broad categories of "wrong-think", and those attempting to express any of those views are shunned and "cancelled".

    Did Harris earn her Vice-Presidency by deeds or competence or merit as you say? Or did Biden simply rule out men and white people from consideration and she was available and willing?

    I'd vote for anyone with the proper principles, regardless of their sex, race, sexuality, etc. But it seems that people are being elected and chosen based on their sex, race, sexuality, etc., regardless of their principles.

    Do enough of that, and yes, we'll have "colorful" rulers. And they'll drag us straight to Hell, just the same.

    These forums never get boring. This was not supposed to be a controversial topic, couple of posters (elgans, NCLiberty) seem confused and apparently getting emotionally triggered in a weird way. Earlier emotional triggering seemed to surface in LGBTQ or Israel lobby/Andrew Adler Atlanta related topics but lately in random threads
    Not sure where the misunderstanding could be stemming from. So there is no ambiguity, I'm only opposed to Israeli lobbies (or any foreign lobbies for that matter) efforts that undermine US political system by bribing/buying politicians & try to push US into wars for interests of foreign countries under false pretenses. Also not at all opposed to gay rights, LGBTQ diversity discussions were in political context only. In case there was any misunderstanding, I believe people have right to choose whichever lifestyles they prefer in their private lives, only government should not be involved in such private matters.

    I would bet anything that Kamala Harris is a legit, diagnosable sociopath. Or APD or whatever they call it now. Whenever I look at her I see someone trying to mimic human emotions, hence the bizarre fake cackle she busts out.

    If Trump made a comback in a new Reality TV show on NBC or on his own anti-Foxnews channel , wonder if he would call her a "champion" also impressed by her historic accomplishment as he referred to Prez Obama in his book during Obama's historic first term.

    .. .
    I think your post answered your own question, VP choices are often based on political calculations including demographic factors. Competence is probably not among top 3 qualifications, just guessing.

    Trump does get credit for being straight shooter for part of his 2016 campaign when most of GOP was looking like a group of timid kids too afraid to be too critical of Obama.

    LOL. You got busted, and now you're glossing over it.



    Also not at all opposed to gay rights,
    There's no such thing as "gay rights." If you say that, then you're saying the rights only apply to certain groups of people. Try "human rights" or "natural rights" instead.

    Again, up has become down, left becomes right, sane has replaced insane. I thought empowering women was about treating them as persons capable of life outside family obligations and sexual pleasure. Now we have reverted to treating them as a collection of body parts.

    To give credit where due, there probably has never been any other GOP or Dem President in entire US history during whose one term so many historic milestones were reached.

    Doug Emhoff, Kamala Harris' husband, will be the nation's first 'second gentleman'


    Jeanine Santucci, USA TODAY
    Nov. 7, 2020

    WASHINGTON – With Vice President-elect Kamala Harris' historic election as the first African American and Asian American woman in her position comes another historic role for her husband, Doug Emhoff. He'll be the country's first "second gentleman" when Harris is sworn in as vice president in January.
    Emhoff will be the first male spouse of any vice president or president, and he played a big role in the campaign for Joe Biden's presidency.

    Here at RPF, we don't promote every conspiracy theory - merely the ones we've been made aware of. If there's anything that Ron Paul followers know, it's that bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces acting in concert and in secret to make them happen.
