Both Jill and Joe had reservations about Kamala Harris joining the ticket in 2020.

A new book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” by Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns scheduled for release on May 3, details the hesitation that both Bidens felt over the selection of Kamala Harris as Joe’s running mate.

Joe had reservations about Kamala because of her “past romantic relationship with Willie Brown, the former San Francisco mayor who had appointed Harris to a pair of minor political positions.” According to the book, Biden described the behavior “as the kind of thing that should be off-limits.”

Jill’s concerns were centered around the rather vicious attacks that Kamala leveled on Joe during the primaries in an attempt to smear him as racist.

Another book alleges that Jill used some rather colorful language toward Kamala after that debate.

It appears that Jill was still holding a grudge.

“‘There are millions of people in the United States,’ she began. ‘Why,’ she asked, ‘do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe,'” the authors wrote of a conversation Jill Biden had after she learned Harris became a leading candidate to serve as Biden’s running mate.

Several from Biden’s inner circle, however, supported Harris on the ticket. Ron Klain, now the White House chief of staff, had been tasked with vetting vice presidential candidates and, according to the book, told Biden early on that Harris was most qualified for the job as she had sought the presidency herself.

“Yes, Harris had attacked Biden more harshly than any other major candidate in the Democratic primaries. Yes, the Biden family had seen it as a smear and a betrayal. In Klain’s assessment, that would work to Biden’s advantage,” the book states. “Choosing Harris will show people that you are magnanimous and forgiving, Klain told Biden. It will show the country just what a unifying leader you can be.”

Harris was on the shortlist of candidates because Joe had promised to choose a woman to join him on the ticket, and she ticks off a lot of the right identity boxes for the Democrats.

It didn’t seem to matter that she was failing to poll in the double-digits with Democrats in the primary or that she is somehow even less likable than Hillary, she has the right gender and skin color.

There have long been whispers and leaks that there was trouble in paradise. Human Events editor, Jack Posobiec, has been tweeting out tidbits that he receives from his sources in the White House that expose the “shade war” going on behind the Biden-Harris unity.

It is alleged that the Biden team keeps the Harris team out of the loop, but Harris herself is frustrated with her role and didn’t want to appear at the Afghanistan presser with Joe.

Back in November, the New York Post reported on the growing divide in the White House.

Despite their public show of unity, Biden and his right-hand woman have a dysfunctional relationship that has reached an “exhausted stalemate,” according the network.

At a time when the president would usually be expected to promote his vice president as a future replacement, Biden has instead been sidelining Harris as a potential liability, the report said.

For their part, Harris’ allies are reportedly frustrated with the president for dumping politically fraught issues in her lap — including, infamously, the ongoing illegal immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border. “They’re consistently sending her out there on losing issues in the wrong situations for her skill set,” summed up one former top Harris aide to CNN.

It probably doesn’t help that Harris has been handed the worst possible portfolios — like the crisis at the Southern Border.

Of course, as we’ve seen, the more she’s trotted out, the better she makes Biden look. At least he has the excuse that he’s pushing 80, Harris is patronizing, belittling, and sounds like she’s high when she speaks because that’s who she is.

And she can’t seem to keep staff. In just a year and a half, 13 staffers have left Harris’s office.

Meanwhile, according to Posobiec, the White House “shade war” continues apace.

As awful as Harris is, it appears she might have been the best of the lot on Biden’s shortlist. How sad is that?

The book notes the other women that were being considered:

  • Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer the subject of the now-infamous FBI entrapment kidnapping plot
  • New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has paid out tens of thousands of dollars after multiple accusations of sexual assault over decades
  • delusional Stacey Abrams who lobbied for the job but was considered a “lost cause” because she had lost the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race

Also considered were Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) who were all rejected for being “compromised or risky” selections.

Harris was the “safe” choice to win the election.

According to the book, a close Biden advisor said, “You know, white women are incredibly racist, as are white men,” adding, “None of it was safe. It was a risky thing to do. But it was the safest of choices that we had.”

Interesting. I wonder if that advisor said that to Jill Biden, who is a white woman. Maybe whoever said it is on Jill’s radar now — just like Kamala Harris.

Well, you know what they say about a house that’s divided, right? It cannot stand.

2024 can’t come soon enough.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
