Barry Nussbaum: Hello and welcome to ATP Report, I’m Barry Nussbaum. Our very special guest here today to talk about the breaking news Clare Lopez. She’s an internationally known expert in security policies. She’s a writer. She’s a former big shot with the United States government, formerly CIA. She knows a little bit about everything. Welcome, Clare.
Clare Lopez: Thank you. Barry. You do me too much honor.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, let’s talk about the news that just came out. Joe Biden has picked Kamala Harris under intense pressure from the very progressive wing of the Democrat Party. He was ordered by those on high to pick a woman and an African-American woman. How does Kamala Harris fit into that?
Clare Lopez: Well, she very definitely is a woman, but she’s certainly not African-American. One of her parents is from Southeast Asia of Indian heritage and the other from Jamaica. So African-American is not quite the right definition there, but I guess they’re happy with their pick.
Barry Nussbaum: Are they going to be, and when I say they I mean the Democrat establishment, are they going to be reminded by the public that this woman, while she looks darker than, well, say you are, is she black enough in an African sense or is that going to be forgotten tomorrow?
Clare Lopez: You know, I really think that will be forgotten tomorrow. They’re going to be pleased with the pick. She fits well enough for their definition, I guess.
Barry Nussbaum: Interesting. And I agree with you on that. So here’s my first question in terms of what’s going to be thrown at her, as everybody knows the story and I’ll add a personal slant to it. Some people may know that I served in a number of administrations in California, working directly for a number of governors of California. Most famously, Arnold Schwarzenegger was my boss, and I reported directly to his office, running a very large financial district for the state of California. And I got to know a gentleman named Willie Brown, who was the head of basically everything Democrat in the state of California, among other jobs. He was the longtime mayor of San Francisco. He wrote a book in which he bragged about his secret lover, who he promoted because they were having sex. And that secret lover was Kamala Harris. What can you tell us about that story?
Clare Lopez: Well, you certainly have more direct experience with that whole situation, but I’ll say this. If we look at the Marxist communist playbook, for example, in writings by former FBI agent W. Cleon Skousen, if we look at pronouncements and statements out of the Black Lives Matter movement, which is definitively Marxist, we can see that there is very little regard for what most of us would think of as traditional Judeo-Christian based Western morality. As a matter of fact, the Black Lives Matter movement statement is on its website, and it’s an organization or umbrella organization that Kamala Harris has explicitly endorsed. That statement on the BLM website says specifically that it supports the destruction of the nuclear family. So this is where the communist Marxist BLM leftists are dragging the Democratic Party. I wonder how many traditional liberal Democrats of the old sort will be willing to go along.
Barry Nussbaum: Well, that’s an interesting take on it, and let’s add a second question to it. Willie Brown also said repeatedly, Clare, that he promoted her to these positions of power and influence because they had a sexual relationship. Do you think the independents will care? They aren’t traditionally Democrat, and there aren’t traditionally Republican. They tend to vote people more than party and policy more than a party with those people in the middle, and as we all know, they decide every presidential election. Will they care?
Clare Lopez: I think they will. You know, I think most Americans of whatever faith are good people and they abide by or at least try to abide by a set of morals and ethics that this contradicts at the most basic level. Of course, we can add to this that during the primary campaign, among the Democratic contenders for the presidential candidate, which Biden eventually won, Kamala Harris said explicitly that she believed the female accuser of Joe Biden who accused him of rape. So now she’s willing to run as the vice-presidential partner of someone she thinks is a sexual predator. I think a lot of Americans are going to have trouble with that.
Barry Nussbaum: That’s an interesting take on it. And here’s the biggest question I think that Americans are going to ask themselves. I’ve been watching politics for a long time, and I know you’ve been an expert around politics for a long time as well. I can’t remember a vice-presidential pick more important in American history, because you have a presidential candidate that the majority of Americans think won’t finish out a four-year term because he just doesn’t seem all there mentally. Dementia is what some people are calling it, Alzheimer’s, other people, or just limited capabilities mentally, and it seems to be getting worse. You have a presidential candidate running with a vice president who many people think will fill out the term. So you have a candidate not like in the past where the vice president goes to things the president doesn’t want to go to. He meets the second rate leaders of the world. He cuts ribbons. You know, he’s a dignitary and a figurehead. Now, you have a vice presidential candidate that very well will be the president should Joe Biden win. How important does that make her as a pick?
Clare Lopez: Well, I think it’s very important that we consider that she is, I believe, about twenty-two years younger than Joe Biden and obviously has her faculties all about her, unlike him. You know, Joe Biden, in the few appearances that his handlers allowed him to have, appears to us and we are not medical experts of any sort, but appears to the observer to be slipping badly and rather quickly in terms of mental acuity, ability to string together sentences, not lose his train of thought in the middle. It is at least a likelihood, at least a possibility, that Kamala Harris, were Joe Biden to win the presidency, that she could well be the one to finish the term.
Barry Nussbaum: Exactly. Clare tell people where they can find you, would you please?
Clare Lopez: Yes. I do not yet have a website. I still have to work on that a bit. But I am on social media. I am at Clare M. Lopez, on Facebook, on Parler, on Twitter, and you can find my writing and other videos like this one, both at American Truth Project and at sites like Sharia Crime Stoppers, the United West, the Citizen’s Commission on National Security and a few more.
Barry Nussbaum: You’re amazing, and you’re everywhere. The ubiquitous Clare Lopez. Thank you.
