There are many lessons to be learned from the saga of Elizabeth Warren's candidacy for U.S. Senate. One of those lessons is that the voting public
should never take a candidate at his or her word when the candidate makes claims about some sort of exotic ancestry in an attempt to gain political
advantage. Contemporaneously, Barack Obama's self-reported (and incomplete) history is finally getting some of the
long-overdue scrutiny it deserves.
Elizabeth Warren is a Democrat candidate for the U.S. Senate, who, by her own admission, is at least 31/32nds lily white. Yet she apparently has gained some
considerable advantage by claiming, on the basis of dubious evidence, to be 1/32nd
Indian Native American, thus qualifying for Affirmative
Action, which will help to compensate her for all the injustices she suffered in the 19th century. Even if the lady can prove that she
is 1/32nd Native American, this is still such an unforgivable scam that it may help bring an end to the decades-long practice of hiring people based on
their self-reported ethnicity rather than their professional qualifications. The way I see it, anyone who was born in this country is a native
American. My great-great-grandparents probably had a tough life, too. So what?
Senator Warren's forte seems to be connected to
Operation Choke Point and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Overview / recap articles:
Is Sen. Warren an 'Honest
Injun'? [Scroll down] Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one of those who jumped onboard the Native American
bandwagon, claiming a 1/32nd Cherokee heritage — a claim strongly disputed by a Cherokee genealogist.
Refusing a DNA test to remove any doubt, Warren relies on two dubious sources — family lore and her "high
cheekbones." She has asserted she "never asked for and never got any benefit" from her claim. The following suggests
otherwise. Proclaiming her ancestry in 1984, Warren later used it professionally to claim minority status when her name
was entered into the University of Texas Law School faculty directory. That may very well have influenced Harvard Law
School to offer her a job to join their faculty, where she was described as its "first woman of color." Harvard became her
launching pad for a political career. While Warren had no qualms about claiming Indian heritage, she certainly stood
out as such. Unlike so many impoverished Native Americans, she is worth millions of dollars.
Indians and the Absurd Demand for faculty "Diversity". Much tongue clucking was heard over the President's
reference to Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas," an allusion to her phony claim to Indian heritage. But to my mind, it
was apt and called for. She's a liar, like many on the left, and a hypocrite as well, supporting "diversity" and
affirmative action programs while lying to take advantage of them at cost to those who might qualify. In May of
2012 — forgotten by most of the media or brushed under the rug — Warren admitted that she had told the
University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law school about her purported Indian heritage before she was hired. Harvard
promoted her as the first "woman of color" on their faculty, she listed herself as Native American in the Association of
American Law Schools deskbook, and the Cherokee tribe from whom she claims descent called her claim "harmful and offensive".
The notion that her lie did not boost her chances for hiring at Harvard, is demonstrably risible.
Elizabeth Warren 'Pocahontas' is the best way to fight racism. The Senator from the High Cheekbones Tribe of
Harvard isn't just a fake Indian. She's a fake class warfare activist. And a fake everything. Warren was a
Republican before she turned Socialist. Before she was fighting corporations, she was helping corporations deny
compensation to asbestos victims. And before she was protesting the high cost of education, Harvard Law was paying her
$350,000 to teach a single course. A multinational corporation owned by billionaires then gave her a $525,000 advance
to tell her tale of rising from "poverty" to fight for ordinary people who don't get their own chair funded by Wall Street
lawyers. It would take a heart of stone not to make Pocahontas jokes about a blue-eyed scam artist so shameless she
passed herself off as Harvard Law School's "first woman of color." A grifter whose campaign tried to prove she was really
Indian by citing the work of her cousin who wrote the 'Pow Wow Chow' cookbook containing such authentic Indian recipes as
Cold Omelets with Crab Meat and Mexican Oatmeal Soup.
Trump knows about 'Pocahontas' and the CFPB. It was during Warren's 2012 senate race that the issue of her
Native American claims first surfaced. During the course of that campaign, her opponent Scott Brown revealed that in
both her applications to Harvard and Penn, "she checked the box claiming she was a Native American" and criticized her for
pretending to be a "person of color." A reporter asked Warren about a 1998 story in the Harvard Crimson quoting a
university spokesman who defended Harvard's lack of diversity by claiming that Warren was Native American. Overnight
the senator was accused of having won her post by pretending to be something she was not. She pushed back, saying that
her mother's family, coming from what Warren calls "Indian Territory" and the rest of us call Oklahoma, had long told stories
about their Cherokee ancestry. She never could document that heritage, nor could reporters who dug deep into her background.
Timely news and commentary:
Warren Trumps King day with prez-bashing. On a day meant to honor Martin Luther King Jr., U.S. Sen. Elizabeth
Warren stole the spotlight instead, tearing into President Trump in a fiery speech that should generate more fuel for her national
ambitions. Warren's charge that Trump is a "racist bully" came as her campaign released new eye-popping numbers showing she's
coming into her 2018 re-election campaign with more than $14 million in the bank.
Elizabeth Warren Faces Criticism over 'Slut-Shaming' Tweet. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism
for saying that President Donald Trump "slut-shamed" Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday
[12/12/2017]. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand "would do anything"
for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of "slut-shaming."
Woman Slams Warren For Using 'Racist Stereotypes' To Claim She's Native American. A Cherokee woman criticized
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren for delving into "racist stereotypes" to defend her claims that she has Native
American heritage. Rebecca Nagle, a mixed woman of Cherokee heritage, slammed Warren for doubling down on her alleged
Cherokee background after President Donald Trump referred to her as "Pocahontas" at a ceremony earlier this week in a
Wednesday op-ed for Think Progress.
The Massachusetts Democrat is Indian in the sense of checking the "Are you Native American?" box on the Association of
American Law Schools form, which Elizabeth Warren did for much of her adult life. According to her, she's part Cherokee
and part Delaware. [...] How does she know she's a Cherokee maiden? Well, she cites her grandfather's "high cheekbones,"
and says the Indian stuff is part of her family "lore." Which was evidently good enough for Harvard Lore School when
they were looking to rack up a few affirmative-action credits.
Got a Vast, Unaccountable, Unconstitutional Agency Because Elizabeth Warren Compared Mortgages to Toasters.
Sixteen hundred bureaucrats with the power to charge billions in fines, with a $600 million budget outside of the
congressional appropriations process, and all because Elizabeth Warren compared mortgages to toasters. "Of all the
ideas that get published in ... journals like that, not so many make it into law," Warren boasted in 2011, at the launch of
the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She was referring to her essay "Unsafe At Any Rate," published by the "lefty"
Democracy Journal in 2007, which was used as the impetus for the Obama administration to establish the CFPB. Warren's
reasoning: If people are too stupid that they would buy a toaster that could blow up their house, then they certainly
aren't smart enough to read the fine print on a mortgage. Using a toaster as an analogy wasn't just a cute way for the
then-Harvard law professor to begin her 5,000-word "manifesto" proposing her "new regulatory regime." No, the toaster
was the thesis.
Tolerate Lies ... When They Come From Elizabeth Warren. The network news divisions boast about how much they care about
the truth and then rage against President Trump when he calls them makers of "fake news." But when it comes to the politicians
they adore, especially those they wish would run for president, the truth takes a back seat.
Warren's Pocahontas Pickle. The president first deemed Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts "Pocahontas"
in May of 2016. After Trump had become the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Warren began coming at him hard on
Twitter, vowing to battle his "toxic stew of hatred & insecurity." Never allowing an attack to go unanswered, Trump responded
in kind on his favorite social media platform, blasting her "phony Native American heritage." When The New York Times
columnist Maureen Dowd phoned Trump to ask him if Republicans were chafing at his Twitter-feud with Warren at a time he should
be presenting a unifying posture, he replied, "You mean Pocahontas?," thus producing another memorable caricature.
trap. I think President Trump is trying to get Elizabeth Warren nominated, or at least keep her in the
spotlight. It is a trap for the Democrats and progressivism. And it is working. The conventional wisdom
of D.C. politics has Elizabeth Warren as the big winner following the president's use of his nickname for her, Pocahontas,
during a ceremony honoring the Navajo Code Talkers of World War II. But the conventional wisdom has consistently
been wrong about Donald Trump's effectiveness in reaching the voters he needs to win his victories.
Tall Tale Of Sen. Warren's Native American Ancestry Explained.
[#1] Elizabeth Warren
lied about her ancestry for years.
[#2] She has never told the whole story as to why she listed herself as
a Native American for nine years (perhaps because she used it to get ahead at law schools that were desperate for minority
professor representation at the time.)
[#3] In 2012, she was forced to backtrack on multiple explanations
for why she did it, and to this day still hasn't provided a clear answer as to what exactly happened.
She has never provided any documentation proving she is a Native American (and most independent analysis also says there is no proof).
Pence A Liar While Protecting Warren Is Why People Hate Media. Earlier this week, Donald Trump made a joke at
an event honoring the great World War II Navajo Code Talkers. He poked fun at Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who used to
claim to be Cherokee despite not having any evidence to substantiate the claim. Democrats and their media footsoldiers
decided it's racist to mock someone for falsely claiming to be Native American. For example, Jim Acosta of CNN wrote:
"WH press sec says 'Pocahontas' is not a racial slur. (Fact check: it is.)" Uh, fact check: no.
For one thing, as Gabriel Malor said, "No, derogatorily referring to a person who falsely claimed to be a Native American as
Pocahontas is not a racial slur. It demeans no racial or ethnic group." It definitely demeans women who claim that
they're Cherokee sans evidence.
Fake Indian, time to either give up the claim or prove it. Isn't the left supposed to despise "cultural
appropriation?" What greater cultural appropriation could there be than for Elizabeth Warren to have falsely claimed an
ethnic heritage in order to win not one, but two tenured Ivy League law professorships she had absolutely no shot of ever
getting until she checked the box? All of the alt-left pajama boys and trust-funders who were hyperventilating about
this yesterday, let me ask you a question: How come Pocahontas won't take a DNA test so that we can find out, once and
for all, how much Indian blood she really has, if any? Why has she refused my multiple generous offers to pay for her
Downplay Senator Warren's Lies About Her Heritage. On Monday [11/27/2017], President Trump caused a stir in the
liberal media when he mocked Democratic Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" during an Oval Office event to
honor the work of Navajo code talkers during World War II. The Big Three Networks rushed to claim Trump was whipping
around a racial slur, but meanwhile, they brushed over where the moniker came from: Warren's dubious claims she was of
Native-American heritage, which she used to gain an advantage in forwarding her career.
Warren [is] tarnishing [her] image with money deal. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is boosting her bulging
campaign war chest through a joint fundraising deal with her political action committee and the state party that's funneled
nearly $2 million to her re-election bid in just nine months. It's an arrangement similar to the one Hillary Clinton
had with the Democratic National Committee that drew fire from Warren, who said it showed the party's national primary was
stacked against Bernie Sanders. Donors have been cutting five-figure checks to the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund since
it launched in January as a joint fundraising committee with her own PAC for a Level Playing Field and the Mass.
Democratic State Committee. It's transferred more than $1.86 million to her own re-election campaign — or
15 percent of her $11.9 million total haul in 2017 — through an agreement that guarantees her the first
$5,400 of any donation, her PAC the next $5,000 and the state party the proceeds thereafter up to $10,000.
using Texas tragedy to advance agenda. What kind of demonic soul walks into a church a murders 26 innocent
people, including several children, at point-blank range? What kind of heartless monster instantly seizes on such
senseless tragedy to advance a personal political agenda? Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, for
one. Authorities identified the killer as a severely deranged and violent reject illegally in possession of guns, but
Ms. Warren somehow accused the Republican Party of perpetrating the atrocity.
Warren lied about being sexually harassed Liberal senator shared a fake experience on Meet the Press.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has just jumped the shark. The Massachusetts Democrat has been caught lying about being a
victim of sexual harassment. The question is: Will the GOP hold her accountable? If they do, this scandal
may be too much even for the progressive icon to withstand. Recently, Warren went on "Meet the Press," claiming she had
a "Me Too" story as well — in reference to the #MeToo campaign, which began after the Harvey Weinstein allegations
by countless women as a way to give voice to their experiences of sexual assault and harassment.
Warren's 'Me Too' story 'inconsistent' with previous telling: report. Sen. Elizabeth Warren shared her "Me
Too" story on national television this past Sunday, describing a harrowing account of sexual harassment she experienced as a
young law professor. But her recollection of the incident is "inconsistent" with the way she previously told the story,
reported the Boston Globe. Ms. Warren told the same story two decades ago at the memorial service of the senior
University of Houston faculty member that she accused of chasing her around a desk.
Elizabeth Warren Get Frazzled Trying To Prove She's Not Part Of The One Percent. Democratic Sen. Elizabeth
Warren of Massachusetts was accused of hypocrisy Wednesday by WRKO radio host Jeff Kuhner for reliably railing against the
one percent despite being worth millions of dollars. Warren, who was at the WRKO studio in Boston for an interview, met
Kuhner in the hallway and the situation escalated as Kuhner asked why Warren has built her career haranguing the one percent
when she herself is a member of that class. Warren defended herself, citing humble beginnings as the daughter of a
janitor who was able to advance to her current position due purely to the "equality of opportunity" provided by government
programs. [Video clip]
Warren confronted over her 'One Percent' status. A Boston radio host called out U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren
this week for criticizing America's "One Percent," noting that her net worth ranks her among the class she consistently
attacks. "How can you rail against the One Percent, when in a sense you are and live like the One Percent?," Jeff Kuhner
asked Warren on Monday [9/25/2017] in the hallway of the WRKO's studio, referring to the class of America's wealthiest people.
Elizabeth Warren Warns That Trump's Ban on Transgenders in Military 'Makes America Less Safe'. Sen. Elizabeth Warren
(D.-Mass.) says that President Donald Trump's decision to ban transgenders from the U.S. military will "make America less safe."
"President Trump just issued an official memo that insults the courage and sacrifices being made by thousands of transgender troops, and
he once again proved that he cares more about extreme ideology than military readiness," Warren said in a statement released on Friday [8/25/2017]
after the president sent an official memorandum to the Defense Department to implement the ban. "The President can pretend this decision is
about military effectiveness, but it isn't," said Warren. "Banning individuals from serving based on gender identity is shameful and
wrong -- and it makes America less safe."
The Editor says...
Lying politicians make America less safe.
Gun control makes America less safe.
Rabid environmentalists make America less safe.
Abortionists make America less safe.
Violent criminals make America less safe.
50 mpg clown cars make America less safe.
Political violence in the streets makes America less safe.
Pandering to Iran makes America less safe.
Voter fraud makes America less safe.
Banning DDT makes America less safe.
Nearly everything liberals stand for makes America less safe.
Warren says she WON'T challenge Trump in 2020. Senator Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday morning [4/18/2017] that
she isn't planning to challenge President Donald Trump for the White House in 2020. 'No,' Warren said flatly on NBC's
'Today' show. 'I am running,' she added — 'in 2018, for senator from Massachusetts.' Warren faces a re-election
fight next year.
Warren Uses Legal Loophole to Raise Big Cash. As she was gearing up for her re-election campaign —
and a potential presidential bid — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in January quietly set up a joint
fundraising committee that allows wealthy donors to write five- and six-figure checks. As a candidate, Warren can raise
a maximum of $5,400 from any individual contributor — $2.700 [sic] in the primary and $2,700 for the general
election. By combining her campaign fund with the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee and her political action
committee, PAC for a Level Playing Field, the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund can raise cash in much larger increments.
Woman Warren strikes it rich, goes for the mother lode. Elizabeth Warren, the fake pink-and-gold Indian
(cripes, just look at her photo!) darling of progressives, has struck it rich again, this time not from house-flipping,
affirmative action-whoring, a no-show job at Harvard, or portfolio-sharking, but this time with a Beltway-insider staple, a
big-bucks book deal about why she didn't run for president. With her, it's all about making money doing little or
nothing. That's how she rolls.
Warren answers a question no one has really asked. An extremely large percentage of America's 326.5 million citizens
did not run for president last year. Only one of us non-candidates, however, decided to write a new book to explain why.
If you're one of the many Americans who hadn't thought to wonder why Elizabeth Warren did not run for president — or don't
really care — join the crowd. Warren's new book about her non-candidacy comes out next week and would-be buyers are
not yet lining up. The book is heavily biographical, which means Warren is definitely running for the presidential nomination
of what's left of the Democrat Party in 2020. First, of course, she needs to win reelection next year in Massachusetts.
Warren Goes Silent on Equal Pay Day After Free Beacon Report. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to
acknowledge Equal Pay Day for the first time in her Senate career after it was reported on Tuesday that women working in her
Senate office earned just 71 percent of what was earned by men. Warren has used Equal Pay Day, which fell on April 4
this year, in years past as an opportunity to speak out on the gender pay gap. Last year she took to the Senate floor to call
Equal Pay Day a "national day of embarrassment" and pledged to continue her "fight" until the pay gap was erased. She gave
similar statements on Equal Pay Day in 2015, 2014, and 2013, her first year in the Senate. This year, Warren was the only female
Democratic senator who ignored Equal Pay Day entirely, and it was not due to a lack of opportunity.
Reminder: Elizabeth Warren is a Clownish Hypocrite. Quite a headline, I realize, and I won't even mention
the screaming conflict between her status as a celebrated Social Justice Warrior and her decision to perpetrate a racial
hoax — whether through reckless sloppiness or willful intent — in order to advance her own
career. She was never a Native American, but nevertheless, she persisted in claiming that false origin story.
Until she became a tenured professor at Harvard, that is. As I've discussed at greater length elsewhere, it turns out
that celebrity leftists who violate certain lefty pieties are eligible for waivers to wash away their cultural appropriation
and privilege-stealing sins. But we won't get into all of that right now. In this post, I'll focus on
Sen. Warren's words versus deeds on two other fronts: Equal pay for women, and judicial filibusters.
Angered that Cabinet Nominee Considers President His Boss. Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked President
Trump's labor secretary nominee Alexander Acosta after he declined to say whether he would overturn several Obama
administration regulations during his first confirmation hearing Wednesday [3/22/2017]. Warren (D., Mass.), a member of
the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions, asked Acosta whether he would direct the Labor Department to
defend new overtime regulations in federal court after an Obama-appointed judge blocked them from going into effect, as well
as whether he supported Trump's executive orders affecting safety and financial regulations.
Warren's Female Staffers Made 71% of Male Staffers' Salaries in 2016. The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth
Warren's (D., Mass.) office is nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the Massachusetts
Democrat's office will have to wait longer than most women across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day. Equal Pay
Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual
unadjusted gender pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to work to match annual earnings of
men. Last year's figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on
Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.
lamenting liberal Liz's fall from grace. Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is useless, teetering
close to the ragged edge of pointless. Apart from starring roles in childish protests and tough-guy Twitter rants,
Warren is making no difference in Washington, D.C., and is no friend to her constituents in Massachusetts.
Changes Media Strategy Amid Low Home-State Poll Numbers. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has changed her
media strategy amid low poll numbers in her home state by making herself more available to the press in Massachusetts.
Warren's "creative media-dodging habits are a running joke among her home-state press corps," Politico reported over
the weekend. "Whenever the senator makes a public appearance, Massachusetts reporters know to keep one eye fixed on the
group blasts Elizabeth Warren. A local veterans' advocacy group is blasting Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and other state
Democrats for their support of illegal immigrants, calling it "selfish political theater" and demanding they put veterans' services at the top of their
list — or feel the heat. "We'd like to see our leaders re-examine their priorities, put this at the forefront — if we
have to, we'll knock on some doors in D.C.," said John MacDonald of Veterans Assisting Veterans. "We need to take care of veterans first before
we decide to take care of people who are illegally here."
Warren takes a dive. Massachusetts' very own profile in courage — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth
Warren — Thursday voted against the only African-American nominee to Donald Trump's Cabinet, Ben Carson, who was
confirmed as secretary of Housing and Urban Development. The funny thing is that Warren was pretty much OK with voting
in favor of the former neurosurgeon back when his nomination was being considered by the Senate Banking Committee —
a mere five weeks ago.
Warren's Secrets and Lies. [T]he CFPB has spent the last five years stonewalling congressional oversight and document requests.
Bipartisan commissions are internally transparent, meaning a restructuring would give even minority Republican commissioners access to confidential
CFPB inspector-general reports, employee files, and internal e-mails and documents. Senator Warren's reputation rests largely on the CFPB, and she
knows what the bureau is hiding. She'd like to keep those secrets hidden until her reelection to the Senate in 2018 — and perhaps a bigger
race in 2020.
Warren is a grandstanding phony. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was right to invoke Rule 19
against Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for her personal harangue against her "friend and colleague" Sen. Jeff Sessions
(R-Ala.). Dignity is flowing out of Washington and Warren is doing more than her part as she desperately tries to prove she
isn't just another tiresome Hillary Clinton. What a pretentious, grandstanding phony. Warren is likely running
for president in 2020, and she is trying to rally the embittered left and Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) crowd to her side.
Warren Condemns Sessions for Suggesting Wealthy Corporations Should Hire Americans. During her now-infamous
Senate tirade against the confirmation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) criticized the
former Alabama senator because his office suggested in a press release that a wealthy American corporation should hire
Americans. One would think Warren, who has been mocked as "Pocahontas" or "Fauxcahontas" for misrepresenting herself as
a Native American to obtain preferential treatment, would be less cavalier toward Americans with serious questions about
their own career prospects.
Cruz Is Right about the Democrats and Racism. Psychiatrists call the phenomena Warren exhibited as transference, the ascribing
to others the faults you yourself possess. Warren attempted to call former Sen. Jeff Sessions a "racist" and, by implication, his
party and President Trump as well, on the Senate floor, a severe breech of protocol. As Sen. Cruz pointed out in his reaction,
Sen. Warren and her party had better look in the mirror of history: [...]
Collins defends her vote to silence colleague Elizabeth Warren. U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, on Wednesday [2/8/2017]
defended her vote to uphold a measure to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., during a debate about attorney general nominee Jeff
Sessions Tuesday night. Warren was reading aloud from a letter written by Martin Luther King Jr.'s late widow that was critical of
Sessions' behavior toward African-Americans when he was a U.S. attorney in Alabama. Sessions, who was confirmed to be attorney general
Wednesday night, is a Republican U.S. senator from Alabama, and a seldom-used Senate rule that prohibits members from impugning "the motives
or integrity of any senator" was invoked to silence Warren.
Queen Is Dead. After Mrs. Clinton's humiliating defeat at the hands of Donald Trump, there have been whispers, if not shouts:
"The queen is dead." Elizabeth Warren is doing her best to take over the position from Mrs. Clinton, and hence her dopey defamation of
Jeff Sessions, alongside whom she was perfectly content to serve in the Senate until his nomination as attorney general gave her what every aspiring
progressive leader wants most of all: a white, southern, Christian, male antagonist. [...] but I do not think Warren has quite sealed the deal.
It is important to her that she do so and do so soon, because as anybody who has ever watched her up close doing the actual business of campaigning
(as I have) knows, she is a terrible politician: awkward, stiff, humorless, afraid.
Elizabeth Warren, keep talking. Tuesday night [2/7/2017], Sen. Elizabeth Warren was silenced on the Senate floor by
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Mr. McConnell ordered Ms. Warren to stop talking, saying she impugned the
character of a fellow senator, Jeff Sessions — a violation of chamber rules — by reading a letter from Coretta
Scott King, the late wife of Martin Luther King Jr., that accused Mr. Sessions of working to intimidate elderly black voters.
It was an unsavory move — to condemn a sitting senator, of whom Ms. Warren has had no qualms with until he was appointed
as attorney general. After her microphone was cut off, Ms. Warren took to Facebook and continued reading the letter.
She then started [a hashtag] on Twitter, got it trending, and then appeared on as many cable talk shows as she could on Wednesday morning
to speak about the injustice.
empty anti-Trump stunts have made the Senate a circus. Senate Democrats' exhausting show of all-out war on
President Trump's Cabinet picks continues, delaying the confirmation vote for Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general
until dinnertime Wednesday, and for Rep. Tom Price as health secretary until after midnight. This gave every
senator (who cared to) the chance to read that Corettta Scott King letter — an anti-Sessions slam from 1986 that
will change no minds in 2017. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was trying to uphold the last vestiges of senatorial
courtesy when he stopped Sen. Liz Warren from reading the note into the record. Sessions, after all, was a sitting
senator until his confirmation, and senators traditionally don't trash-talk each other on the floor. Well, those days
Breaks Senate Rule, Prohibited From Debating Sessions Nomination. For the remainder of Tuesday night [2/7/2017]
and for most of Wednesday, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren is prohibited from debating on the floor of the
Senate. That's because her Senate colleagues found her guilty of impugning another senator, Jeff Sessions, whose
nomination for attorney general is being considered. With a 52 seat Senate majority and control of the White House,
Republicans are now able to confirm Trump cabinet nominees with a 50 vote majority and Democrats are furious. And while
Democrats can't stop nominees unless Republicans defect, they're resorting to the time-honored Senate tactic of parliamentary delay.
Sen. Lindsey Graham: Silencing Sen. Elizabeth
Warren 'was long overdue'. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says the silencing of Sen. Elizabeth Warren on the Senate floor Tuesday
[2/7/2017] was "long overdue." The South Carolina senator appeared on the Mike Gallagher Show Wednesday, where he said Warren reading the letter from C
oretta Scott King — in which she expressed opposition to Jeff Sessions' nomination to the federal bench in 1986 — was defamatory to
Sessions, now an Alabama senator. The Massachusetts Democrat was ruled to be in violation of Senate rules for impugning another senator. "The
bottom line is, it was long overdue with her," he said. "I mean, she is clearly running for the nomination in 2020."
Train Flows Wide And Deep At Elizabeth Warren's Consumer Agency. Pay is flowing so generously at the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that hundreds of bureaucrats there receive more than most members of Congress. [...]
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan of Wisconsin receives $223,000 per year, but that's less than what 54 CFPB employees are
paid. Another 170 CFPB employees earn more than the secretaries of defense and state, the attorney general and the
director of national intelligence. All cabinet salaries are capped at $199,700, but not at the bureau.
Reprimands Warren Over Speech Slamming Sessions, Calling It Violation of Senate Rule. Senator Elizabeth Warren
was reprimanded on the Senate floor tonight for a speech she delivered railing against Senate colleague and AG nominee Jeff
Sessions. At issue here was her quoting of incredibly critical words that Ted Kennedy and Coretta Scott King used in
the past to oppose Sessions when he was up for a judgeship in the 80s.
Keep Getting Worse For Elizabeth Warren. I wrote here about Elizabeth Warren's unimpressive poll numbers in
Massachusetts. In light of recent developments, those numbers may not have bottomed out. This week,
Sen. Warren, who recently pressed Department of Health and Human Services nominee Tom Price about what she considers
possible financial improprieties, is under fire regarding a $1.3 million line of credit from the Bank of America on her
Cambridge home. For two years in a row, the sanctimonious Warren failed to list it on the financial disclosure form all
senators complete each year.
vote to rebuke Elizabeth Warren, saying she impugned Sessions's character. Senate Republicans passed a
party-line rebuke Tuesday night of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for a speech opposing attorney general nominee Jeff
Sessions, striking down her words for impugning the Alabama senator's character. In an extraordinarily rare move,
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) interrupted Warren's speech in a near-empty chamber, as debate on Sessions's nomination
heads toward a Wednesday evening [2/8/2017] vote, and said that she had breached Senate rules by reading past statements
against Sessions from figures such as the late senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and the late Coretta Scott King.
Liz Warren Refuses to Disavow Madonna's Wish to 'Blow Up the White House'. Two days after Madonna shared her
wish to blow up the White House, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) has not come out with a statement condemning the
outrageous desire that the pop singer expressed in her address to Saturday's Women's March on Washington's National Mall.
Warren Used Loophole to Avoid Disclosing $1.3M Line of Credit. A U.S. senator who took advantage of a loophole
in ethics laws to avoid disclosing a $1.3 million credit line against her home is now warning that incomplete financial
disclosures from cabinet nominees put the country at risk. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) warning came in the
Washington Post, where she wrote that "it is critical that each nominee follows basic ethics rules to ensure that they
will act for the benefit of all the American people."
Brzezinski Turns on Elizabeth Warren: 'I'm Getting Tired of This Act'. There was a time when Brzezinski might
have been a steadfast supporter of Warren's principled opposition to Trump. But apparently that time has passed.
shows Warren is no sure bet for re-election next year. Sen. Elizabeth Warren may not have an easy path to
reelection in 2018. A poll released Monday [1/23/2017] shows that 46 percent of Massachusetts voters think it's time for
someone else to have a shot at the Senate.
44 Percent of Massachusetts Voters Say Warren Deserves Reelection. Massachusetts Democratic senator Elizabeth
Warren is a shoo-in for reelection in 2018, right? Eh, that doesn't look quite like the ironclad lock that some might expect.
Democrats hate entrepreneurism at least as much as they hate capitalism.
Are 'Progressives' Fighting Against Uber and Airbnb? Recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, one of the most
liberal Democrats around, declared war on start-up companies that are helping middle-class families make ends meet and are
providing a great new service to millions of customers. Why? Because they challenge the liberal status quo.
In her keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday, Warren talked about how Democrats are always fighting for
the middle class. "Try to do something, anything, for working people, and you'll have a fight on your hands," she said.
What Warren didn't say is that it's liberals like herself who are often picking the fight.
A Horrible Country. Name an ethnic group, and the Democrats have pandered to its grievance. "The system is
rigged" shouted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., after recounting her rise from nothing to being a millionaire. Not
too rigged obviously. Warren also railed against Donald Trump for seeking profit from foreclosed properties, which just
so happens to be how she made a nice chunk of her fortune. The only difference is Trump never pretended to be a minority
to get a job.
Hillary is the just latest sign that Warren is a fraud. American politics may have no bigger fraud than
Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren. So I got a good chuckle from Politico's Thursday [6/9/2016] story saying the Massachusetts
Democratic senator had called Donald Trump, among other grade-school taunts, a fraud. I don't know whether Warren fancies
herself the pot or the kettle in this one, but she's definitely a hypocrite. In fact, while she was preparing to call Trump
a fraud, her advisers were leaking to every major press outlet they could find that she was finally going to endorse Hillary Clinton
for president, now that she has secured the necessary delegates. What a profile in courage. Endorsing Hillary could be
the most fraudulent act of Warren's brief political career, since Warren is a less compelling version of Bernie Sanders on economics
and even once boasted she essentially "created" Occupy Wall Street.
Who Got Paid $350K to Teach One Class Calls Trump "Greedy". That's right. It's Elizabeth Warren, Harvard
Law's first blonde "woman of color", auditioning on the campaign trial to be Hillary's V.P. hurling devastating zingers like
calling Trump an "insecure money grabber" who is driven by greed. So does that make Elizabeth Warren a secure money
grabber driven by pure altruism? ["]Harvard Law paid Warren $350,000 to teach a single course. When Scott
Brown brought it up during a debate about student loans, she protested. 'I want to talk about the issues. Senator
Brown wants to launch attacks.'["] Now Warren wants to launch attacks instead of talking about the issues.
expect Warren to play peacemaker once primary ends. Democratic senators expect Sen. Elizabeth Warren
(D-Mass.) will soon make moves to mollify restive liberals and unify the Democratic Party behind Hillary Clinton.
Several Democratic senators say they have approached Warren about the role she can play, insisting she is best positioned to
mend the schism between the Clinton and Bernie Sanders wings of the party. Warren has a loyal following among the more
liberal Democrats who favor Sanders. She has told colleagues she will play the role of peacemaker, but not until after
the last major round of primaries on June 7.
Elizabeth Warren Listed As Harvard's First "Woman of Color" In 1997 Article. The Mainstream Media has tried to
ignore far-left Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren's attempt to make herself a minority to allegedly further her then academic
career which included a high-paying Harvard teaching gig. Donald Trump has since made ignoring that story much more
difficult as he blasts the lily-white "Pocahontas" Warren for her longtime deception.
Warren Goes To War Against Donald Trump. When Senator Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts, took up the fight
against Donald Trump in the last few weeks, it felt a little like that moment in an action movie when the disaffected friend
who'd walked out turns up late in the third act, mid-fray, with fresh ammunition and a wink and a grin for her old gang.
With Hillary still pinned down in the primaries, unable to shake off the dogged Bernie Sanders campaign, Warren started a
Twitter war with Donald Trump.
return of Pocahontas. [Scroll down] Ms. Warren claims to be a Native American as well (born in Oklahoma), descended,
at least in part, from the Delaware and Cherokee tribes. Her claim is in dispute, however, and the only proof she has produced to back
the claim she made in a campaign biography in 2012 is her contribution of two "family recipes" to the Pow Wow Chow Cookbook, published by the
Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Okla., in 1984.
Liberals are really good at solving problems we don't have.
'Free' Government Service. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for tax software.
She has the support of other liberal Democrats. She has introduced a bill that would require the IRS to make available a "free"
online filing option to some taxpayers. She doesn't mention that taxpayers will have to pay for the development and continuing
maintenance of this system through higher taxes. So it won't be free. Rather it will be a system the cost of which is
hidden in the fine print of the federal budget. Never mind that TurboTax and other software companies now offers a no-cost
option for a majority of taxpayers. Sen. Warren says TurboTax keeps it secret: a secret known only to the 3 million
people who use it and to millions of others who know about it but choose not to use it. The IRS website has a direct link
to the free software.
Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears. For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has
described herself as a Native American. When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an
unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J.
Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee.
After researching her story, it is obvious that her "family lore" is just fiction.
"Hiawatha" Warren Tells Republicans Not to Obstruct Obama. There's a chance that the GOP-controlled Senate
might not put a rubber stamp an eventual Obama nominee to replace Antonin Scalia. Because of that, Sen. Elizabeth Warren
reminded Republicans about an important addendum to the Constitution that was apparently put into place when only Democrats
were watching: [...]
Warren Wants The SEC To Help Her Ban Free Speech. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wants the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) to prohibit organizations from "saying whatever they want about Washington policy debates," according to a letter she
sent to the agency on Thursday [3/31/2016]. Warren sent a letter to SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White calling for an investigation
into alleged discrepancies between statements insurance executives made to their investors and complaints these same individuals made about
the impact new government regulations would have on their businesses, The Wall Street Journal reports. The new regulations
stem from a Department of Labor rule change that will make it tougher for investment firms that handle retirement funds to operate.
Warren Named One of The Biggest Liars OF 2015. Left wing hero Elizabeth Warren made the Washington Post's list of liars this
year. The reason had nothing to do with her false claims of Native American heritage but an incorrect suggestion that car dealers
intentionally try to mislead and defraud consumers.
Hints at Warren for VP. In what would be a dream ticket for some and a nightmare to others, Bernie Sanders has been dropping some
not-so-subtle hints that he would select Elizabeth Warren as his running mate. This would be a smart move on Bernie's part. He has
been functioning as a stand-in for Warren and derives support from her wing of the Democratic Party. The left would be electrified.
The rest of the country would be horrified as these two Neo-Marxists traveled the land promising to take wealth from some and give to others.
Warren Only Female Democratic Senator Missing From Hillary Clinton Endorsement Event. One by one tonight [11/30/2015],
13 female Democratic senators took the stage inside the packed ballroom at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC to raise money and
announce their support for Hillary Clinton. But it was the person missing from the group who stood out most.
Post names Elizabeth Warren one of its 'biggest Pinocchios of 2015'. The Massachusetts Democrat was given "Four
Pinocchios" for a speech in April in which she cited a flawed study that estimated auto-dealer markups cost consumers $26 billion
a year. The 2011 study, conducted by the Center for Responsible Lending, only collected data on subprime auto loans, which
accounted for only one-fifth of the overall market at the time. Pressed by Kessler, even the CRL's senior vice president
admitted the data was incomplete. But the Pinocchio didn't end there.
Warren: 'Government Permits Us To Do Things Together That None of Us Could Do Alone'. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said at a
discussion on infrastructure investment and job creation on Thursday [10/8/2015] that government can accomplish more than individuals.
"Government permits us to do things together that none of us could do alone," Warren said at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
event in Washington, D.C.
The Editor says...
First of all, the idea that the government "permits us" to do things is a poor choice of words. We have the right to work
together on our own projects. One does not need a permit to exercise a right. Second, while it is true that groups of people
can do things together that individuals cannot do alone, those groups could be churches, extended families, non-profit organizations, or
capitalist companies. And it's a lot easier to accomplish great things without the government's "help."
Highways, water pipes and sewer lines are examples of beneficial public works projects at the state and local level, but what is the federal government
doing on our collective behalf, other than gathering tax revenue, printing money like there's no tomorrow, and throwing money away (again,
like there's no tomorrow) on a trillion-dollar welfare state and an assortment of pointless pork-barrel projects such as the exploration
of other planets?
Warren's Tax Warning. Ms. Warren showed up at the National Press Club to pronounce that the idea that American
companies are overtaxed is "not true." In her prepared remarks she said the strategy of "giant corporations" is to "tell a
story about high U.S. taxes, demand tax cuts from the U.S. Congress, and threaten to leave the U.S. for good if they don't get
what they want. I say it's time to call their bluff." Call their bluff? Their bluff has been called.
They've shown their cards. And they've moved overseas. So many U.S. companies have been moving out so quickly that
last year Treasury Secretary Jack Lew didn't think he had time even to conduct a formal rule-making to stop them.
Elizabeth Warren Praises Black Lives Matter Movement. The BLM movement has been well documented to include some
of the most anti-social, hate-filled elements of the Occupy crowd; only BLM one comes with specific violence toward police
and law enforcement.
Backs Black Lives Matter. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called on Americans to focus on racial justice and
expressed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement in a Sunday [9/27/2015] speech at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute
for the United States Senate in Boston. Warren referenced the late Sen. Ted Kennedy's (D-MA) focus on civil rights issues
and said, "If his life and death had a meaning, it was that we should not hate but love one another; we should use our powers
not to create conditions of oppression that lead to violence, but conditions of freedom that lead to peace." She said that
since the Civil Rights Act, the United States has not come close enough to equality.
Elizabeth Warren: Republicans Want to Shut Down
Women's Access to Cancer Screenings. She says the 2016 Republicans want to shut down women's access to cancer screening at the end of this
video. She never once answers the question of the Planned Parenthood videos. [Video clip]
partnership would be nightmare for Warren. Unless Elizabeth Warren wants to brand herself a Class A phony on
consumer protection and gender equality, she shouldn't hitch her wagon to Joe Biden's runaway train. Or, should I say his
runaway hands and mouth. Joining him on a ticket as his vice presidential nominee, as some are now speculating, would send
women all over Washington running for cover. The guy has a serious case of happy hands.
Warren Goes Crazy for Black Lives Matter. The tipping point for my concern about the precarious state of
Senator Warren's mental health came Sunday in the Washington Post. The loony senator was talking about Black Lives
Matter, and how important they are because, as everyone knows, black people are relentless victims of relentless white racism.
All the time. Everywhere. And that explains everything. When, of course, the opposite is true.
Are Playing a Racial Shell Game. Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren is something
of a dashboard saint to American liberals, principally for her retrograde leftism on economics. It
was alleged a few years ago that she spent much of her professional career lying about her fictitious
Native American roots. Warren listed herself as a minority in a professional directory and
identified herself as a Native American. There was no evidence to support her claim, other than
her own family lore and her personal conviction that she feels part Indian. And yet, when
Republicans criticized her for it, they were denounced as racist by many defenders.
Elizabeth Warren Says All Republicans Are Racists. For someone that isn't running for
president Senator Elizabeth Warren sure makes a lot of campaign stops. And for someone that used to
pretend to be a different race, she sure slings the accusation of racism liberally. At an appearance
in Phoenix that had nothing to do with the people in Massachusetts she supposedly represents, Warren called
all Congressional Republicans racists. Warren started things off in her speech before Netroots Nation
on Friday [7/17/2015] by saying how racist America is: [...]
don't really care about the little guys and gals. It's funny how preachy politicians
and activist groups can be when it comes to pet issues like "economic justice." Yet when it involves
their private interests it turns into a case of "do as we say, not as we do." Case in point crusading
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who said in her 2006 book All Your Worth that the idea that "you can
make big money buying houses and flipping them quickly" is a myth. If so, then in the 1990s Warren
and her husband were myth-busters. According to a new report in National Review making hundreds of
thousands of dollars buying a handful of houses at deflated prices and reselling them months or years
later at a substantial markup.
The draft Elizabeth Warren movement winds down. The
effort to draft Elizabeth Warren is finally coming to a close. Weeks after MoveOn.org and Democracy for America shuttered their own campaign
to entice the liberal senator into the 2016 presidential race, the super PAC that started the draft Warren effort almost a year ago is getting
behind Sen. Bernie Sanders.
loophole for Elizabeth Warren. Federal law requires members of Congress and other federal
officials to annually disclose their financial assets and liabilities, including mortgages. In a
form filed last week, Warren stated she and her husband, Bruce Mann, had no debt liabilities in 2014.
But according to a Middlesex South Registry of Deeds record, Bank of America holds a $1.3 million
mortgage on the Cambridge home owned by Warren and Mann. An aide for Warren said the amount represents
a home equity line of credit, not a mortgage.
Warren Hid $1.3 Million Credit Line From Bank Of America. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth
Warren, the populist Democrat and foe of big banks, has not listed a $1.3 million credit line
against her home with Bank of America on annual financial disclosure documents because of a loophole
in federal law, according to a new report. The Boston Herald reported Wednesday [5/20/2015]
that Warren, who is required to disclose financial assets and liabilities, avoided listing it in 2014
because it's a line of credit — not a mortgage — and the Democrat doesn't actually
owe enough money yet.
Effort Underway by Democratic Leaders to Recruit Elizabeth Warren. The Observer has
obtained private email correspondence among a small group of Democratic insiders that reveals a plan to
recruit Sen. Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for president.
Warren and Biden. [Elizabeth Warren] claims to be of and for the middle and working
class Americans, but she's clearly one of the 1%. Her net worth in 2012 was somewhere between
$3.7 million and $10 million. [...] About green Energy, Warren called for an end to tax
loopholes and subsidies that she says benefits "Big Oil," saying that those billions of dollars "should
be used for investment in infrastructure, education, and 'scientific research that could lead to energy
breakthroughs'." She said that 'Big Oil' "sucked down $5 billion in subsidies from the American
people." By saying that, she opened the "subsidies" door. Democrats love to misrepresent tax
breaks, which are available to all, as "subsidies."
Yes, let's reserve the death penalty for somebody who has done something really bad.
Elizabeth Warren speaks out against the death penalty for convicted Boston bomber Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren says she's relieved Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
has been found guilty of carrying out the Boston bombing — the greatest tragedy in her state's
recent history — but doesn't believe he should be executed.
Blue States Have Tried the Elizabeth Warren Model. Their Residents Are Fleeing. The
blue states that try to lift up the poor with high taxes, high welfare benefits, high minimum wages
and other Robin Hood policies tend to be the places where the rich end up the richest and the
poor the poorest.
scandals and Warren's opening. Clinton can't blame her current troubles on the
so-called "vast right-wing conspiracy." It was the New York Times that broke the story that
Clinton used a private server in her Chappaqua, N.Y., home to conduct official State Department
business. And it was The [Washington] Post that revealed the Clinton Foundation accepted millions
of dollars in donations from foreign governments during her tenure as secretary of state. The two
scandals could soon intersect. Clinton admits that she destroyed 31,000 e-mails from her server that
she deemed to be "personal." If she destroyed records relating to the foundation and its foreign
donations, the two scandals could merge and metastasize.
Elizabeth Warren Hero Of Left-Wing Is A Fraud Worth
Millions. Fake "Native American" and communist whack-job Elizabeth Warren is always
spouting-off about "income inequality", but she fails to come clean to the poor and working class
people she claims to serve. Warren, the Harvard bankruptcy law professor elected to the Senate in
2012, is worth between $3.7 million and $10 million. [...] That's not including the three-story
Victorian home in Cambridge, Mass., that she owns with her husband and fellow Harvard law professor, Bruce
Mann. It's now assessed at $1.9 million, according to city property records.
Warren will not attend Netanyahu speech. Senator Elizabeth Warren and two other
members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation plan to skip Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu's speech to Congress Tuesday, saying they are protesting the invitation made by House
Speaker John Boehner. Representatives Katherine Clark, a Melrose Democrat, and Jim McGovern, a
Democrat of Worcester, also are planning to miss the event.
The next Obama. Warren, a fraudulent "Native American" affirmative-action professor at
Harvard Law, represents the same radical left strain that Obama does. Obama lives for power, and
being as self-centered as a spinning top, he lives for his own personal power. Yes, Hillary is
running, but Liz Warren looks younger and more militant to the radical left.
Globe urges Warren to run in 2016. The Boston Globe on Sunday [3/22/2015] pushed Sen. Elizabeth Warren
(D-Mass.) to run for president. "Democrats would be making a big mistake if they let Hillary Clinton coast to the
presidential nomination without opposition, and, as a national leader, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren can make
sure that doesn't happen," the newspaper's editorial board wrote.
reasons the left doesn't believe Warren. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has said time
and time that against she's not running for president in 2016. But don't tell that to her fans
in the Democratic Party.
Nobody is Really Ready
for Warren. The 200 or so events that the "Ready for Warren" movement has held, in cooperation
with MoveOn.org (which has been eerily silent since Democrats assumed administration over Middle Eastern
conflicts), have attracted, at best estimate, exactly that number of supporters. In total, Ready for
Warren has probably spent more on Pringles than it has on anything else, including publicity.
Of The Year'. CAGW, a non-profit dedicated to eliminating government waste, gives the
award annually to the lawmaker, government official, or political candidate who has shown the most
"blatant disregard" for taxpayers that year. [Senator Elizabeth] Warren won over six other
candidates with 34 percent of the vote in a public online poll. She won the award because in 2014
she suggested the USPS fix its financial troubles by rebranding itself as a bank. If USPS offered
basic bill paying, check cashing and small loans, it could make enough money to provide those services and
shape up its finances.
Growth Is Bad for Elizabeth Warren. The left wing of the Democratic Party has been
arguing that inequality is the central challenge of our time and that we need a populist politics to
combat it. It has found champions such as Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Mayor Bill
De Blasio of New York to make that case. Some of these populists even want Warren to run for the Democratic
nomination against Hillary Clinton, with the former taking on the plutocrats the latter is cozy with.
If most people start seeing their wages rise, though, public anger will probably dissipate.
to the NFL, Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren's meteoric rise among Democrats has
demonstrated one thing time and again: her real talent is in getting the mainstream media to act as
her personal publicity agents.
the Radical Marxist that Union Fat Cats Want to See Occupy the Oval Office in 2016.
While many on the Left (and the Right) believe that the Presidential candidacy of Hillary
Clinton is a foregone conclusion, there is another woman that many on the Left — and of
greater importance, within labor's ranks — would rather see become President and they are
beginning to voice their preference ever more loudly. Enter Democrats' more liberal senator
from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.
Wealth Hypocrisy on Display. The hypocrisy of Elizabeth Warren is becoming more and
more a matter of record. The same woman who said of the hate-the-rich Occupy Wall Street movement,
"I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do. I support what they do," is not
only wealthy beyond the dreams of most Americans but is part of the very 1% that the Occupy Movement
Warren Says Economy Is Rigged Against Middle Class. Is the economy rigged against the
middle class? The Democratic left's dream candidate — Sen. Elizabeth Warren —
thinks so. "I see evidence everywhere of the pounding working people are taking," Warren said on
Wednesday at an AFL-CIO summit on raising wages. "These families are working harder than ever, but
they can't get ahead. Many feel that the game is rigged against them, and they are right. The
game is rigged against them." Her argument, of course, is that the government must intervene to level
the playing field. But Warren must not be looking very hard if she can't see that the free market is
rigged in favor of working families, not against them.
Warren: Class Warrior With Heap Big Wampum. Liberals hope that the populist-sounding
Elizabeth Warren will run to the left of Hillary Clinton, whom they fear is now too rich and out of
touch. But Sen. Warren's financial records may dash their hopes.
Warren blasts GOP on Keystone. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren chided Republicans yesterday
for planning to push a divisive top priority as soon as they officially take over the Senate, rather
than working toward bipartisan agreements. "There's going to be an energy hearing on Wednesday [1/7/2015],
and right now, the
Republicans say they're
going to move forward on the Keystone pipeline," said Warren
(D-Mass.). "If we're going to move forward on something, how about something that more of us can
The Editor says...
We all agree on almost nothing. If it were not so, we wouldn't need Senators. Senator Warren's idea
of "forward" is not the direction most Americans want to go.
Warren lays out liberal agenda in campaign-style speech to union allies. Sounding ever
the presidential contender, liberal firebrand Sen. Elizabeth Warren outlined a sweeping Democratic
agenda Wednesday that included raising the minimum wage, breaking up Wall Street banks and raising
taxes on big business to help shore up entitlement programs and pay for infrastructure projects.
the Media Is Covering Elizabeth Warren's Plan to Shut Down the Government. During
last year's government shutdown when Republicans and Democrats couldn't come to a compromise on
spending provisions to continue to fund the government, the media portrayed it as Ted Cruz's
fault — Ted Cruz's shutdown, because he wanted to defund Obamacare. This year, Sen.
Elizabeth Warren wants to reject the bipartisan spending compromise to get rid of business-friendly
deregulatory provisions. But this year, it's not about "Elizabeth Warren's plan to shut down
the government." No, the media can't bring themselves to go there.
Elizabeth Warren Missed in Her Big Bank Tirade. Sen. Elizabeth Warren delivered a
stemwinder speech last Friday [12/12/2014] on the need for government to rein in Wall Street
influence. But it's big government that created the monster in the first place.
Warren poses a challenge to Hillary in 2016. Massachusetts firebrand Sen. Elizabeth
Warren emerges from Washington's budget clash as the undisputed champion of the rising left, and
will almost certainly challenge Clinton for the 2016 nomination. The polls say it's Hillary's
turn, but I'm starting to believe 2016 could be 2008 all over again, with Warren taking the nomination
from her the way Barack Obama did.
Durbin: Elizabeth Warren a 'great spokesman' for Democrats. Sen. Elizabeth Warren long
has been a hero on the progressive left, but her popularity among the Democratic Party establishment
is growing rapidly. Ms. Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, now is set to assume a leadership role in
her party's Senate caucus, and the leaders of that caucus say she's uniquely qualified for the job.
Liberal 2016 poll:
Elizabeth Warren beating Clinton by double digits. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth
Warren — not Hillary Clinton — is the top progressive choice for president in
2016, according to a new poll. In fact, Clinton doesn't even make second place. Forty two percent
of respondents favor Warren, and Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders also edges out Clinton with 24%
compared to her 23%, according to results from the 2016 Presidential Pulse Poll commissioned by progressive
grassroots organization Democracy for America.
Former Obama Staffers Urge Elizabeth Warren to Run for President. A group of more than 300 hundred former
Obama staffers have written an open letter urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president of the United States.
Holocaust Survivor Eva Steiner Moseley Gets Elizabeth Warren to Endorse Hamas. It does seem like Warren is semi-randomly
tossing out talking points that she had picked up earlier for an issue that she doesn't really understand.
Still Hate Dirty, Greedy Businesses. Hillary Clinton sniffs, "Don't let anyone tell
you that, um, you know, (smirk) corporations and businesses create jobs." Barack Obama chastises,
"If you have a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Analysts around
the country have correctly noted that Obama and Hillary were trying to be Elizabeth Warren, Lioness of the
Leeches, Princess of Thieves. Here's the way Warren said it: [...]
Give Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren a Fake New Leadership Post. The Democrats just got
clobbered in the mid-terms and are now for all intents and purposes a regional party that is
confined to the coasts and urban areas. They need to find a way to improve their policy and
messaging so that they might, at some point, become competitive in some states and at least relevant
in others. So what do they do? They lurch to the left again.
and the Color 9. [S]o much shape-shifting is going on in the public arena that I often
catch myself mid-stagger as if I'd just stepped off a roller coaster. Such was my reaction after
reading National Journal's article [7/18/2014] titled "Elizabeth Warren's 11 Commandments of
Progressivism." [...] In the first place, the headline was as deceptive as I suspected; her "commandments"
weren't really commandments, because none of them forbade progressives from doing anything, rather they
demanded the cooperation of everyone else. After all, the progressive dream cannot be realized unless
absolutely everyone toes the line, willingly or otherwise. Shangri-La cannot be perfect if anyone is
allowed to leave. Each of her statements started with the phrase "we believe" as if it were a
statement of faith like you'd find on a church web site, and ended with either some activity she wants
other people to stop doing, or with demands for benefits she thinks people either "deserve" or are
"entitled to," terms she used almost as often as the word "equal."
Jarrett in secret meetings with Elizabeth Warren, author Ed Klein says. New York Times
best-selling author and long-time journalist Ed Klein said that Valerie Jarrett has been engaging in
secret meetings with Sen. Elizabeth Warren in recent months, giving rise to speculations that the
Massachusetts political newcomer is actually the administration's choice to head the White House in 2016.
media is drafting Elizabeth Warren to run in 2016. [I]t is fair to say that most in
the press believe that only individual who could mount a credible challenge to Clinton from her left
is Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). The "reality-based community," as it were, is however quick to note
that even that scenario is highly unlikely. This sentiment is best expressed by Slate's Dave
Weigel who recently performed an interview with the founder of campaign aimed at drafting Warren to
run in 2016.
Is Overrated. The notion that Elizabeth Warren should challenge Hillary Clinton for
the Democratic Party presidential nomination has been optimistically tossed around in left-wing
circles for a while now. [...] Still, it seems to me that a lot of people are overestimating the
appeal, uniqueness, and popularity of Warren. What's most enticing about Warren right now is the
perception of her, not the reality. [...] It's when Warren goes full Progressive that she sounds
like a irate union boss. She promises to "fight" for all of you. Yet, not a single
doctrine of the modern Left according to Warren has anything to do with broad economic growth.
Warren: The government shutdown was over birth control. Sen. Elizabeth Warren,
D-Mass., on Tuesday blamed last October's government shutdown on Republicans wanting to deny women
access to birth control. No really. Warren said this on the Senate floor while defending the
Democrats' deceptively titled "Women's Health Protection Act." "Remember last year's government
shutdown that nearly tanked our economy?" Warren asked. "That fight started with a GOP effort to
hold the whole operation of the federal government hostage in order to try to force Democrats and
the president to let employers deny workers access to birth control."
Sen. Elizabeth Warren a Mere Hack or an Out-and-Out Sociopath? Sen. Elizabeth Warren
now says that last year's government shutdown was about birth control. Warren did not make the
remark in an off-the-cuff setting. She made it in a prepared speech. [...] Spoiler alert:
That shutdown was not over birth control. That shutdown was over the budget and the entirety of
Obamacare. The whole law (which hardly any Democrat read before passing it into law).
Not birth control.
Warren Is Confused: Why Do They Think I'm A Socialist? Her bill, the Bank on Students Emergency
Loan Refinancing Act, would lower the amount of money that students are obligated to repay to the federal
government. If enacted, the bill would deprive the federal government of billions of dollars in interest
payments owed to its shareholders: the American taxpayers. It is Warren's belief that
students — who voluntarily signed up for the loans and agreed to pay them back at certain
interest rates — should be let off the hook.
Warren student loan bill stalls. The Senate on Wednesday voted not to move forward on
a bill from Sen. Elizabeth Warren that would have allowed an estimated 25 million people with older
student loans to refinance that debt at current, lower interest rates.
Biggest 2016 Competitor: A Native American Millionaire Who Also Pretends Not to Be Wealthy. A
huge question in Democratic politics — other than "When is Hillary going to announce?" — concerns
whether or not Senator Elizabeth Warren (D — Cherokee Nation) will run for president.
If Hillary does not run, it is almost certain that Warren will. Well-known for her populist and
Occupy-esque perspectives on healthcare, taxes, income redistribution and everything in-between, she is
one of the rising stars of the Democratic party. Anticipating that it could happen, we're getting
out in front and establish her as a storyteller, to put it nicely, about her wealth.
Elizabeth Warren is perfectly positioned for 2016 (if she wanted to run). Sen. Elizabeth Warren
(D-Mass.) says she's not running for president in 2016, and we believe her — for the most part.
But there is one thing that will keep the pilot light of the Warren for President speculation aflame: the
almost-gaping hole in the Democratic primary that seems tailor-made for her. Look no further than the new
Washington Post-ABC News poll for a little glimpse into that void. The poll shows that a huge portion of
the Democratic base not only dislikes Wall Street and big business; its voters actually think these institutions
are inflicting harm on them personally.
Exempt from Scrutiny. The 1 percent fetish is also not really ideological. Elizabeth
Warren, one of its greatest supporters, is not just a 1 percent but a 0.1 percent
grandee. Her house, habits, household income, past corporate consulting, and net worth all
reflect a desire for profits and refinement not accorded to most Americans. Her life is about
as much a part of the 99.9 percent as she is Native American. She is not worried about
welders getting some work on the Keystone Pipeline or farmworkers put out of their jobs in Mendota,
Calif., over a baitfish.
Warren would crush Hillary, and they both know it. Forget the current polling as
between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren. It pits Hillary against someone who "isn't running."
For all my criticisms of Warren, and they are extensive, I am convinced that if she ran, she would crush
Hillary, just as Obama did. Warren, as did Obama, has a unique ability to demagogue the core
Democratic narrative of victimhood in ways that would make Hillary blush. She is more cunning than
Hillary, more popular with the base, would bring an excitement the contrived Ready-for-Hillary
movement could only dream of. Democrats may be "ready" for Hillary, but they don't really want her.
two years, no answers from Elizabeth Warren on roots. It's been two years since I
broke the story that Harvard University identified Sen. Elizabeth Warren as a minority —
citing her alleged Native American roots — but we're still in the dark. We've had two
years of Warren's simplistic answers that aren't really answers. Two years of Warren insisting she's
proud of her heritage while dismissing questions about it. And two years of her refusal to open up
records that could prove whether she used that heritage claim in Ivy League applications.
Liz Warren milks system then slams it in phony soundbites. While U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sleeps
in her $5 million mansion in Cambridge, and got paid $350,000 to teach just one class at Harvard, she had the
audacity to say in an interview with Jon Stewart this week that "the system is rigged to benefit the rich."
Yes, Sen. Warren, that would be you. Under a free-market, capitalist system, you became a U.S. senator and
multimillionaire whose own net worth hovers around $14.5 million, according to personal financial disclosure
reports filed in 2011.
Attempts A Rewrite of Her 'Native American' Heritage in New Book. A new book by Sen. Elizabeth
Warren (D.-Mass.) attempts to rewrite history on her controversial claim of Native American ancestry.
The issue of Warren's ancestry emerged during her 2012 Senate campaign when news broke that Harvard Law School
was promoting Warren as a Native American faculty member.
Is she bragging or complaining?
Elizabeth Warren: America 'Rigged' to Benefit the Rich. On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren
(D-MA) complained that America had "fundamentally changed" so that the rich get richer and the poor continue
to struggle. [...] "That's what's fundamentally changed," Warren insisted. "Look, it's tough out there.
It really is a rigged game, and it's set up now over and over and over."
Elizabeth Warren: It's 'Dangerous' to Want 'Big Government' to Disappear. "Politics so
often felt dirty to me — all the lobbyists and the cozy dealings and the special favors
for those who could buy access. But as I stood in the lobby outside Ted Kennedy's office, I felt
as if I'd been washed clean," media favorite Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said in her book.
That quote sums up the message of Warren's new book "A Fighting Chance."
The Editor says...
Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable to comment about people getting a "fighting chance."
Warren whines about coverage of her fraudulent Indian claim. Democratic Massachusetts
Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was "hurt" and "angry" by 2012 reporting on her
fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. "What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks
from the other side," Warren wrote in her book "A Fighting Chance."
Warren, take my DNA challenge? There is only one way to settle once and for all the question of whether
the fake Indian is or is not a real Indian. She needs to take a DNA test. I dare you, Sen. Warren. [...] No
more of this fact-free nonsense about your "high cheekbones," or these ridiculous fables about your parents "eloping"
to escape the racism of the Indian Territory when they actually returned to their hick hometown that same evening for
a traditional wedding party.
Elizabeth Warren Is Rewriting History. In a new book released
today [4/22/2014], Massachusetts Democratic senator and potential presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren attempts to
rewrite history regarding the controversy surrounding her "Native American" ancestry that emerged in the 2012 Senate
campaign. What's remarkable is that, at least in the initial book reviews, the press largely allows her to get
away with it. In fact, it's virtually ignored that to this day Warren still refuses to release any law school
records that may shed light on this controversy.
Elizabeth Warren's claim that the U.S. earns $51 billion in profits on student loans. Who
knew? The federal government knows how to make a profit! Or, as Warren twice said in arguing for a cut in interest rates on student
loans: "obscene profits."
Elizabeth Warren Demands Blood Donation
Rights For Gay Men. Senator Elizabeth Warren and the other signatories from congress are correct when they cite the advances the medical
community has made in HIV/AIDS research and treatment but it is absurd and dangerous to advance this as a cause with any basis in civil rights.
One would hope that most parents of a child in need of a blood transfusion wouldn't risk their child's life to prove their progressive sincerity.
Elizabeth Warren surges in new Prez poll.
The former secretary of state and first lady dominated last week's new Quinnipiac University survey, which showed her gobbling up 61 percent of support and
beating any Republican challenger — be it New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul or Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — by
anywhere from 13 to 23 points.
Warren writes new chapter. Whatever happened to Granny Warren's Native American heritage? She's written
a new memoir, due out next month, and in the advance press releases, I don't notice the word "Indian" anywhere.
Take it to the bank: Sen.
Elizabeth Warren wants to raise minimum wage to $22 per hour. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, suggested raising
the minimum wage to $22 per hour is only logical if you look at the numbers. "If we started in 1960, and we said [that] as productivity
goes up ... then the minimum wage was going to go up the same ... if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour,"
the senator said, at a recent Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on "Keeping up with a Changing Economy: Indexing the Minimum
The Editor says...
Productivity went up in spite of the steadily increasing minimum wage, not because of it.
Elizabeth Warren wants to know why the minimum wage
isn't $22 an hour. Why stop at $22? Why not $100, $200 or $1,000 an hour?
Elizabeth Warren's Fuzzy Math. Sen. Elizabeth
Warren's (D., Mass.) argument that the minimum wage would be triple what it is today if it were linked with productivity relies on
oversimplified and faulty data, a new study says. Warren's rhetoric "makes zero economic sense, and demonstrates how out of
touch Sen. Warren is with business realities faced by employers who hire people and pay them the minimum wage," said the report by
the Employment Policies Institute (EPI), a free market think tank specializing in wage issues.
Elizabeth Warren winning support for
2016 White House bid. Just a few months into her first U.S. Senate term, Democrat Elizabeth Warren is generating increasing support among liberals as a
White House contender — putting her on a potential collision course with presumed front-runner Hillary Clinton. Warren's tough stand against the Obama
administration's proposal to potentially cut Social Security benefits has become a lightning rod for progressive groups looking for a more liberal standard bearer in 2016.
Elizabeth Warren Wikipedia page ethnically cleansed. Warren insisted during the
campaign that believed that she was Cherokee based on family lore, but that family lore (including the famous elopement story) was substantially
debunked. Warren's family always self-identified as white, and her great grandfather even made the local newspapers for shooting an
Indian. Warren's false claim to be Cherokee, and her comical explanations, such as that her ancestors had "high cheekbones" and a
plagiarized entry in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook, have become a large part of Warren's political persona, and is the subject of widespread
Liz won't beat drum.
Despite repeated claims she is "proud" of her Cherokee heritage, newly minted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is keeping that pride under wraps
and won't be taking advantage of a chance to officially list herself as the Bay State's first Native American U.S. senator. Aides said
Warren, who describes herself as part Cherokee and part Delaware Indian, won't contact historians at the Senate Historical Office to tell them
she's Native American. The office lists minority senators in its official directory.
The Muddle Class. America's education
industry, by accelerating the upward mobility of the most intelligent young people, has served as a relentless engine of social stratification. [...] The
stratification of American society by cognitive ability no doubt has its benefits in terms of economic growth and efficiency. But if one were
looking for someone who personifies a Belmont elitist, one could scarcely do better than to point to Elizabeth Warren. Her egalitarian pose
is one of the great hypocrisies of our age.
Awkward first press
conference for senator-elect Warren. A jittery U.S. senator-elect Elizabeth Warren gave one-sentence answers, ducked questions and even
passed one on to Gov. Deval Patrick in an awkward first press conference since the election. Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes
during the 11-minute press conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters' questions.
Curt, Deflective in First Presser as Senator-Elect. Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren, in her first press conference
after defeating Sen. Scott Brown, was noticeably curt with reporters asking about her campaign and the issues voters elected her to solve.
When reporters asked her about the fiscal cliff, Warren could only say, "right now, the parties are in negotiations," and, "well, I think that's
where it is." When asked which Senate committees interested her, Warren refused to answer.
Liz emerges to squash all things
GOP. While I've been extremely grateful — along with the rest of our state's 46 percent of common-sense
voters — that Lizzy Warren went underground after that disastrous post-election press conference when she deferred her decisions as our
U.S. senator to Majority Leader Harry Reid, she's back now. Can you imagine the media buzz if Sen. Scott Brown had disappeared after a presser
fumble like that?

Do you remember the line about how all clever economists were tall, with the exceptions of Milton Friedman and John Kenneth Galbraith?
Clever or not, the 6'8" Galbraith was one of the wittiest of economists, and under a pseudonym once wrote a book mocking academic jargon

Professor Warren's Mystery Contract. Massachusetts
Democratic senate candidate Elizabeth Warren garnered a lucrative no-bid contract with the Clinton administration's Department of Justice
(DOJ) one year after advising then-First Lady Hillary Clinton. The Department paid Warren, a Harvard professor, $90,000 for serving
as an expert witness over a five month period in 1999 and 2000, documents show. That is an "oddly" large sum given the short time
frame and the hourly pay rate DOJ pays witnesses, according to University of Minnesota law professor Richard Painter.
Anchor homes in on Warren wigwam.
It may have been the question of the Senate campaign, posed by Ch. 7 anchor Kim Khazei as she sat in the palatial $1.7 million Cambridge
mansion of Granny Warren, the fake Indian. Khazei: "I asked Warren if she had anything in the house that reflects her Native American
heritage." On the videotape, you can see Granny's smile freeze on her face.
'Plenty of Pictures' Reflect Cherokee Heritage. A pre-election interview shows Massachusetts Senate candidate
Elizabeth Warren still has a sore spot — and no evidence — for her claims to Cherokee heritage.
Cites 'Character' in Warren Endorsement. To no one's surprise, the Boston Globe endorsed Democratic candidate Elizabeth
Warren for Senate in Massachusetts on Saturday. Many were shocked, however, that a key point raised by the Globe in support of
Warren was her superior "character." Really?
Warren obtained federal fee waivers despite high 6-figure income and 8-figure net worth. Elizabeth Warren has built her progressive rock
star image and her campaign by attacking the wealthy factory owners and others who supposedly do not pay their "fair share" and take advantage of
loopholes to live off of infrastructure paid for by others. Yet Warren appears to be one of those people who takes advantage.
of Warren Donations from Sites Lacking Foreign Donor Protections. The Boston Globe reported Monday [10/15/2012] that Democratic Senate
candidate Elizabeth Warren raised $12.1 million for her campaign in the 3rd quarter ending September 30, 2012. That brings the total raised
to $36 million. Yet more than 40% of these funds — an estimated $16 million — have come online via two websites that
do not have industry-standard protections and are vulnerable to fraud and illegal foreign national donations.
Chamber of Commerce Calls Elizabeth Warren 'Catastrophically Antibusiness'. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on
Thursday [10/18/2012] launched a new get-out-the-vote effort, sending a video to members and dropping its first piece of
direct-mail in the general election, attacking Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.

Fake Indian has a lot more ghosts
in the cupboard. By now, everybody understands that Granny Warren is a fraud. The best argument the moonbats can come up with is
that if she thinks she's an Indian, who are we to say she's not an Indian? Does this "evolving paradigm" also apply to Irish and Italian guys so
fed up with being passed over for promotions that they are now allowed to "check the box" as blacks or Mexicans?
Warren: Blue-Collar Champion or
Not? First, there's the question of whether or not Warren ever should have been able to practice law in Massachusetts.
William Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School, went through a lot of paperwork and concluded on Legal Insurrection, a law blog, that Warren
never had the legal right to practice in her home state. She's been licensed to practice only in Texas and New Jersey, but she used her
Cambridge office as her law office, potentially violating state law.
Lies come home to roost.
Granny Warren, the fake Indian, is now portraying herself as the tribune of the middle class, the people Middle Class Joe Biden said
have been buried for the last four years, and you can believe him, because he always tells the truth. [...] Granny lives in the People's
Republic of Cambridge, and bought her Victorian for $447,000 in 1995, the year she drifted into Massachusetts. It's now assessed at
$1,749,000. The mansion itself is so incredibly posh that last year, when a magazine writer wanted to interview Warren there, the
campaign insisted that the house itself was "off the record." During the past four years, the Warrens have averaged $845,000 a year
Massachusetts Republican Party mailer accuses
Elizabeth Warren of '25 years of deception and cover-ups'. The Massachusetts Republican Party has sent out a scathing mailer accusing
Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of "25 years of deception and cover-ups" over the use of her Native American heritage.
While Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has been attacking Warren on the Native American issue recently in two separate ads as well as in recent
Senate debates, the Republican Party mailer is the harshest attack yet on the topic.
Warren represented large utility seeking to liquidate rural electric cooperative. I'm not from Massachusetts, and I'm perfectly willing to
let the good people of Massachusetts decide who their Senators should be without my assistance. But I do think you're entitled to the facts before
you vote, and in at least one respect Professor Warren is not being accurate in her description of one of the cases she handled. Rather than
working to save a rural electric cooperative, Warren represented a large utility which sought to liquidate the cooperative and purchase the cooperative's
main asset, a large coal burning plant north of Baton Rouge.
important is happening in Massachusetts. As most readers of AT know, Legal Insurrection has been pressing
the inquiry into Elizabeth Warren's claims of Native American ancestry, which preceded her leap into the major leagues of
American legal education. More recently, [Professor William] Jacobson discovered that when she moved to Massachusetts to
join the Harvard faculty, Warren never bothered to acquire a license to practice law. Many law professors, Warren
included, have a lucrative side business as consultants, often writing briefs. What happened next was a classic left
wing move: generation of a meme that would enable the media establishment to ignore the scandal as discredited.
Elizabeth Warren's Law License Issues Have
Gotten Even Worse. U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is facing new scrutiny over whether she illegally practiced
law in Massachusetts without a license. Massachusetts Lawyer Weekly recently polled attorneys in the state about
whether Warren should be investigated for "possibly" practicing law without a license from the state. Eighty-seven percent of
the 1,134 lawyers polled want the Harvard law professor investigated.
Stick to your guns, Scott.
Don't let up on the fake Indian, Scott. Is she going to stop mentioning that you're a Republican? Of course
not. So why would you choose to unilaterally disarm? They want you to be "gentler"? Ask your friend
John McCain how gentle worked out for him.
Elizabeth Warren issues incomplete list of cases. Minutes before tonight's [10/1/2012] debate,
Elizabeth Warren issued a list of all of the cases she has worked on since joining Harvard. It was an impressive list, proving what I have said all
along, she practiced law on a regular basis from her Harvard office. But she was not licensed in Massachusetts.
Has Elizabeth Warren ever done pro bono
litigation? [A]s of now, we have at least 22 court cases for major corporations, including chemical, coal and insurance companies,
but not a single court case in which Warren offered her services pro bono for an indigent client, or even for a middle class client who
has been hammered.
Latest Lame Excuse. Warren, an Oklahoma native, was going nowhere in her career until she began "checking the box," claiming
to be an Indian with absolutely no evidence. Once she began listing herself in a minority law-school directory as a woman of color,
she catapulted first to the University of Pennsylvania law school, and then to Harvard. And as soon as she had tenure, Warren abruptly
stopped listing herself as a Native-American.
Handmaid to the Plutocrats.
[Scroll down] By the way, Harvard requires its professors to report any extracurricular consulting activities, but Ms. Warren
is refusing to disclose this list so voters can decide for themselves if she's really a handmaid to the plutocrats disguised as Robin
Hood through November 6. It would be instructive to learn what other corporations, and maybe even a billionaire, have had
her on their payrolls.
On the Road to Benghazi. In
retrospect, the Democratic Convention highlighted a liar, Elizabeth Warren. She was hired by Harvard law school because
she lied about her ethnicity to gain affirmative action benefits, exaggerated her scholarship which was shoddy, practiced law
for years in Massachusetts out of her law school office without being a member of that state's bar — and possibly
at the time a member of no bar at all. She gummed on before the crowd about working for the middle class hiding from
the audience that she had made hundreds of thousands of dollars representing big corporations in disputes against steel workers
and asbestos victims among others.
Democrat Senate Hopeful Warren Exposed As
Complete Fraud. On top of fraudulently claiming minority Indian status without any documented ancestry, the Harvard law professor has now
been busted practicing law in Massachusetts without a state license. Worse, her client list includes the type of corporations that Ms. Populist has
demonized on the campaign trail as greedy polluters and exploiters of the "little guy." Turns out working-class champion Warren in 1995 hired herself
out as a legal gun for LTV Steel to help the conglomerate fight thousands of retired coal miners who wanted more health and pension benefits, the Boston
Herald says. She pocketed a cool $10,000 in the case. Records show in 2009 she also defended insurance giant Travelers against asbestos victims.
Brown demands that Elizabeth Warren release list of corporate legal clients. Senator Scott Brown today [9/26/2012] sent a letter to his
Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, demanding that she release a list of her corporate legal clients while she has served as a Harvard Law School
professor. He cited media reports this year about her work on cases involving Travelers Insurance and LTV Steel, which he said conflicted with her
reputation as a consumer advocate and middle-class guardian.
Warren practiced law in Massachusetts federal court without law license. A prominent defender of Elizabeth Warren's legal work while on the
Harvard faculty has been presented with new facts and conceded that she is in heap big trouble.
Elizabeth Warren not licensed
to practice law in Massachusetts. This is some extraordinary detective work performed by Legal Insurrection's William Jacobson. Digging
through voluminous records and following up with calls to pertinent licensing agencies, Jacobson has made the shocking discovery that Democratic Senate
candidate Elizabeth Warren is not licensed to practice law in the state of Massachusetts. The fact that Warren used her Harvard Law School office to
dispense legal advice, write briefs, and represent clients — all activities that meet the legal definition of "practicing law" — is
also problematic, as Jacobsen explains.
Elizabeth Warren's law license problem. Maintained
private law practice at Cambridge office for over a decade but not licensed in Massachusetts.
Has Elizabeth Warren
Been Practicing Law Without A License? Elizabeth Warren's Senate campaign is, I think, going rapidly down the drain. On top
of her affirmative action fiasco comes another scandal: it appears that she has been practicing law in Massachusetts without a license
for some years. Credit William Jacobson, who, like Warren, is a law professor, for the discovery. Jacobson has been one of the
most effective members of the blogosphere over the last couple of years, and this story is a tribute to his dogged investigation.
crucial first debate, Scott Brown challenges Warren's Native American heritage claim. Republican US Senator Scott Brown questioned
Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren's claim of Native American heritage in the opening moments of a lively high-stakes television debate tonight.
When moderator Jon Keller asked if character was an issue in the race, Brown answered, "I think character is important. ... Professor Warren claimed
she was a Native American, a person of color. And as you can see, she's not."
In debate, Scott Brown hits Elizabeth Warren on Native
American heritage. U.S. Sen. Scott Brown immediately targeted Elizabeth Warren's purported Native American heritage in a heated exchange
that kicked off their first debate, saying she "checked the box," as a minority when "clearly she's not."
Warren Admits She Is Not Licensed to Practice Law in Massachusetts. Ms. Warren's statement comes as a surprise to the many clients she's
provided legal services to over the past decade, including the law firm of Simpson, Thacher, and Bartlett, which listed her as "of counsel" in the 2009
brief they submitted to the United States Supreme Court on behalf of their client, Travelers Insurance.
Warren [...] Practicing Law Without a License. Elizabeth Warren was supposed to be the left's big candidate this election, instead she
has become a millstone around their necks.
Americans Too Stupid for Student Loans. Elizabeth Warren, who during the course of her Senate campaign has been
on some kind of a wildcat strike against producing a single original thought, was given the distinction of introducing former
president Bill Clinton at the DNC. And that seems to me appropriate: As I have long argued, Warren's particular
strain of paternalistic welfare statism is perfectly emblematic of what the Democratic party stands for today. The
problem with the lady from Cambridge is that Professor Warren thinks you're stupid: too stupid to handle a credit
card, too stupid to understand how a mortgage works (hint: You pay it all back, with interest) and prone to being,
in her own words tonight, "fooled by student loans."
Beating drum for Warren a big
mistake. [Scroll down] Lieawatha was so smug she didn't even rewrite a lot of her now-exposed fictionalized biography.
In Charlotte she continued to claim she was raised "on the ragged edge of the middle class" — with a mere three cars in the Herring

Academic qualifications questioned in 1990.
law dean cited 'affirmative action' in 1993 Elizabeth Warren hiring . In a 1994 interview, then-Harvard Law School dean
Richard Clark said his institution was actively applying an affirmative action policy to hiring female faculty, The Daily Caller has
learned. The famed law school first offered Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren a professorship in 1992
and granted her tenure in 1995. And charges leveled in a 1990 academic law journal raised serious questions about her qualifications
to teach at Harvard at all.
Warren Touts Her Ties to Ted Kennedy. In a speech to the Massachusetts delegation here on Tuesday, Elizabeth Warren
memorialized the man whose long-held U.S. Senate seat she hopes to win back for Democrats in November. "Ted Kennedy changed my
life," Warren said, noting that the 2012 Democratic convention marked the first such gathering in decades that Bay State delegates are
without the late lawmaker.
The Editor says...
I'm sure Ted Kennedy changed the lives of many women. He made a profound impact on the life of Mary Jo Kopechne.
'Dances with Lies' Takes Center
Stage. Elizabeth Warren's introductory speech at the Democratic National Convention came with a predictable
broadside aimed at Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as a tool of big corporations who wants to "pulverize financial
reform, voucher-ize Medicare, and vaporize Obamacare." In contrast to the wicked Romney agenda, Warren regaled the assembled
Democratic delegates with the comforting notion that President Obama would defend their interests against those evil forces, since
Obama "believes in a country where everyone is held accountable." Yet, while Warren was extolling the virtues of accountability,
her own lack of accountability was glaringly on display in the days leading up to her speech — namely with her refusal to meet
with Native Americans over her fraudulent claims of American Indian heritage.
Elizabeth Warren attacks GOP, Mitt
Romney in N.C.. Warren got a loud standing ovation from Democratic delegates [9/5/2012], but her nervous delivery left some

Elizabeth Warren and the Cab
Driver. Consider the subtext behind "He is a cab driver." The impression given is that the cab driver, as would be
expected of a little person who was not a Harvard professor, was unknown to Ms. Warren. Poor Ms. Warren, hoisted on the petard of
voter push has GOP crying foul. The state has mailed out voter registration letters to nearly 500,000 welfare recipients,
in a push sparked by a group led by former ACORN bigwigs that critics say is a naked bid to boost Democrats at the polls in November.
Massachusetts sent out voter registrations after lawsuit. Massachusetts is the only state that has agreed to send mass mailings to register
welfare recipients to vote, following a series of state lawsuits brought by the liberal group Demos, which is chaired by the daughter of Democratic Senate
candidate Elizabeth Warren. Republicans say the mass mailings indicate that Massachusetts went above and beyond what was necessary to turn out likely
Democratic voters for the November election.
"Buying the votes of welfare recipients in most blatant way."
Elizabeth Warren Dips into FDR's Bag of Dirty Tricks.
In an effort to stuff welfare recipients into voting booths in November, Warren's daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi is spearheading an effort to force the state
of Massachusetts to send out voter registration forms to state residents who are on welfare. The mailing will cost Massachusetts about $275,000. [...] But
back in 1939, even leading Democrats saw the potential destruction of our political system if politicians could so blatantly buy votes. In that year,
Senator Carl Hatch (D-N. Mex.) sponsored a successful bill to bar relief officials from blatantly campaigning for candidates.
Elizabeth Warren elopement story falls apart. Elizabeth Warren is riding high, raising tens of
millions of dollars and serving as the designated warm-up speaker for Bill Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in early September. But
she's still an ethnic fraud who misappropriated Native American heritage as her own for professional purposes. The only question approaching the
convention is whether Warren's wealth and power can drown out the truth.
The Warren Report. On the same day a poll was released showing Sen. Scott Brown (R., Mass.)
holding a 26-point edge among independent voters in Massachusetts, his Democratic opponent, Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren, appeared at a press conference
for a far-left organization racked by scandal.
Taxi Driver 2: Fauxcahontas Boogaloo.
Don't worry, national news. You don't have to cover this one. The guy who got assaulted is just a Republican.
Elizabeth Warren's thug staffer [states] "You're messing with the wrong

Following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, Professor Elizabeth Warren of Harvard has made the downgrading of high achievers the centerpiece
of her election campaign against Senator Scott Brown. To cheering audiences, Professor Warren says, "there is nobody in this country
who got rich on his own. Nobody. You build a factory out there, good for you, but I want to be clear. You moved your
goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers that the rest of us paid to educate." Do the people
who cheer this kind of talk bother to stop and think through what she is saying? Or is heady rhetoric enough for them?
Elizabeth Warren (for possibly costing Obama the election). Obama has stepped in it big time, and we have Elizabeth
Warren to thank.
Elizabeth Warren "a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor". I think this is a winning theme, that
Warren will be the Dennis Kucinich / Maurice Hinchey of the Senate, someone who can spout far-left rhetoric and play the anti-factory owner card, but
will be marginalized as a Senator. If the people of Massachusetts want someone who will accomplish nothing but headlines, Warren is their person.
don't buy Elizabeth Warren's biz-friendly spiel. Elizabeth Warren's new claim that Wall Street execs are behind her because they
believe she'll "save capitalism" had conservatives rolling in the aisles yesterday, saying the outlandish line is as bad as President Obama's
"you didn't build that" gaffe.
Cherokee conspiracy. Warren's campaign biography,
so craftily constructed over so many years, lies in ruins. Not only did she drive an MG in high school, she only traded in her BMW 528i for a Ford hybrid last year,
just before the campaign began. Her academic bona fides have been savaged in the blogs, and opposition researchers have shown that she was a prodigious
house-flipper and home-foreclosure speculator in her old hometown of Oklahoma City.
More Pow Wow Chow
Plagiarism From Elizabeth Warren's Husband? As Breitbart News reported earlier, Ms. Warren contributed at least two recipes to the
cookbook that were word for word copies of previously published recipes. Now, it appears her husband may have done the same thing. His
Pow Wow Chow recipe for banana nut bread merely raises concerns about the use of bananas as a "traditional" Cherokee ingredient. His
recipe for oriental beef stir-fry, which includes that well known "traditional" Cherokee ingredient of soy sauce cooked in a "traditional"
Cherokee wok, suggests the possibility of potential plagiarism.
Warren: My Mother's Native American Heritage Was An Issue Raised At Her Funeral In 1995. It's not much of an
evidentiary standard offered by this Harvard Law School professor. Her recollection of a verbal statement made to her by
one of her parents about a statement made by her grandparents decades ago would fail to meet the courtroom requirements for offers
of proof. It certainly fails to meet the evidentiary standards applied by amateur and professional genealogists.

tells you even more about the status of the Democratic farm team.
Cherokees leave Boston after Liz Warren snub.
Four Cherokee activists, who hoped to confront Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren over her Native American claims, are heading home
today [6/22/2012] disappointed. "It's like we didn't exist," said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes of the response they got this week
from the Warren camp. She said the campaign never returned their calls despite a promise that staffers would meet with them.
Warren's Troubles Extend Beyond Cherokee Problem.
Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have been locked in a dead-heat for months, despite the national attention on Warren's Cherokee heritage controversy. But that
doesn't mean Warren is in the clear. Even if the Cherokee issue fades, Public Policy Polling found deeper problems for her in its latest poll today [6/26/2012].

of 'Repeated Instances of Scientific Misconduct' Before Harvard Hire. Harvard Law School hired Elizabeth Warren as a Visiting Professor in the
fall of 1992, then offered her a full-time tenured faculty position in February 1993, despite a withering 1990 critique of the academic standards used in the
1989 book she co-authored. The critique was made by one of the nation's leading legal scholars in personal bankruptcy at the time.

Warren: The Next Frontier. Democratic Massachusetts
Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's speech at a symposium on critical race theory — where other speakers were advocating
for corporate reparations, criticizing the concept of U.S. citizenship, accusing America of operating under a system of
"apartheid," and pointing out the misogynistic undertones of wearing makeup — may not help her connect with independent
Massachusetts voters, experts say. "Independents outnumber Republicans and Democrats in Massachusetts. If
Elizabeth Warren alienates too many independents, then Scott Brown will win this election," said political commentator
Matthews offers to help Elizabeth Warren. Chris Matthews isn't even trying anymore. The liberal anchor
on Wednesday [6/13/2012] went into full Democratic adviser mode. Talking to Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth
Warren, he turned an interview into a strategy session, saying of the campaign against Republican Scott Brown: "Let me
help you on this, to the extent that I, as a journalist, can help you." Providing an additional contribution, Matthews
somehow managed to skip the controversy that's been plaguing Warren's campaign for a month and a half: The fact that she
has repeatedly tried to pass herself off as a Native American.
Academic Scandal Elizabeth Warren and Harvard Don't Want You to Know About. This secret report was accepted by
University of Texas President William Cunningham. For two decades, Warren and her co-authors have claimed in academic circles
that this report — never before made public — exonerated them. But the central charge made by Professor
Shuchman was neither investigated nor refuted in this secret report. Shuchman cited four specific criticisms of the 1989 book.
It is the fourth and last complaint upon which charges of scientific misconduct hang.
she was a Republican, the media would call her a racist. Imagine if a Republican candidate claimed,
confidently, that she was part Native American. Imagine if she had actually used that identity to have herself listed
as a minority at Harvard, qualifying her for special treatment and celebration as proof of how diverse and progressive her
department is. Imagine if, many years later, it turned out that her claims to Native heritage were dubious and, when
pressed for proof, she offered her "high cheekbones." Oh, and she once contributed a recipe to a Native American
cookbook called "Pow Wow Chow" (that may even have been plagiarised).
The Immorality of Liberals. [Scroll down] This
explains something that has befuddled some people: the fact that while Senate hopeful Elizabeth "Fauxcahontas" Warren should be hopeless after revelations surfaced that she advantaged
herself by lying about her heritage, she's actually neck-and-neck in the polls with her opponent, Scott Brown. It's no surprise,
though. Her state, Massachusetts, elected and re-elected reprobate Ted Kennedy — despite his decadent, drunken

needs to apologize to Native Americans. With the last-minute backing of Deval Patrick, the state's popular
Democratic governor, Warren got the backing of 97.5% of the 3,500 delegates and thus prevented Marisa DeFranco, her only
opponent, from having enough support to force a runoff election. But while her victory cleared the last hurdle she
faced before competing for the Senate seat once held by liberal icon Edward Kennedy, it left a nagging issue
Denounce the Conduct of Harvard and Elizabeth Warren. As an enrolled member of the Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma, 1981 alumna of
the Harvard Graduate School of Education, veteran scholastic administrator, and lifelong Democrat, I am profoundly disturbed by the
emergence of recent details concerning Harvard and one of its law school's senior faculty members, Massachusetts senate candidate
Elizabeth Warren. Over the course of the past month, facts have come to attention that leave little doubt that the HLS bureaucracy
and Professor Warren perpetrated nothing less than ethnic fraud.
Grifters on Parade. [Elizabeth] Warren
asserted herself to be an American Indian, a Cherokee (as is usually the case with such assertions; few whites claim to be Sioux
or Ute, and never Crow or Modoc), on grounds that have proven to be flimsy to illusory. Her case rests on a document that
research by the Breibart sites has demonstrated to be nonexistent. At best, Warren can claim to be a laughably small proportion
Indian (1/32 or even 1/64); at worst, she is exactly what she appears to be — a member of the WASP tribe putting on the
war paint to fool her fellow palefaces.
Warren's Teepee Of Lies. The truth is catching up with Elizabeth "Speaks With Forked Tongue" Warren, the lily-white
Harvard leftist who falsely ID'd herself as a Cherokee "woman of color."
The legend of Fauxcahontas' little big
lie. It started when Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren was said to have used tenuous claims of Native
American heritage to further her career. The defense for listing herself as a minority in a directory of law professors
for almost a decade rested on the roots of Warren's great-great-great-grandmother. If true, that would make Warren 1/32
Cherokee. It was not. Now, Warren relies on tales of "high cheekbones" and media outlets like the Boston Globe,
which buried the news that she was 0.00 percent Cherokee.
The vetting of Elizabeth
Warren's academic background begins. [Scroll down] In those 60 pages, Professor Shuchman demonstrates time and again
how [Elizabeth] Warren and her co-authors jumped to conclusions, proclaimed new findings which were not new, and most importantly, ignored
or did not accurately reflect data. This point, on page 240 of the Rutgers article, reflects a tendency which Warren has had
throughout her career to reach conclusions which were politically charged and headline grabbing, but not supported by the data.
Elizabeth Warren's anti-gaffes matter.
Don't believe the spin that Elizabeth Warren's claims about being Native American don't matter. Or that she simply made a mistake
in how she handled it. [...] There was no gaffe as in mistake; there was a deliberate campaign of deception and evasion. There also
was not gaffe even in the Washington sense, which is when a politician tells the truth. Warren's statements have been anti-gaffes,
The Editor says...
The selection of Elizabeth Warren as the Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. Senate shows very clearly that the Democrats
don't care about telling the truth as much as they care about winning. The Democrats who vote for Elizabeth Warren will
be endorsing this behavior and will have to answer for it someday.
Caught Telling Another Tall Tale About Composite Grandmother. On Friday, Breitbart News caught Massachusetts Senate candidate
Elizabeth Warren in one of her many tall tales of family lore, forcing her to walk back her September 2011 story about her maternal grandmother,
Bethanie (Hannie) Crawford Reed, through whose ancestral line she falsely claims Native American heritage. Today [6/3/2012], we're
reporting yet another tall tale Ms. Warren told about her maternal grandmother.
Democrats, Warren Try to Push Scandal
Behind Them. Despite a recent poll showing independents souring on Warren over her claims of Native American ancestry,
Massachusetts Democrats yesterday rallied around their beleaguered candidate, turning back a potential primary opponent, and setting up a

The win allows Warren to instead focus on Republican Senator Scott Brown in the general election.
Shows Elizabeth Warren Telling Tall Tale of 'Composite' Grandmother. A recently discovered video shows
Elizabeth Warren telling another tall tale about her family. The day after she announced her candidacy for the U.S.
Senate, Democrat Elizabeth Warren told the convocation at the University of Massachusetts-Boston: "My grandmother
drove a wagon in the land rush to settle territory out west. It was 1889, she was 15 years old... She lived to
be 94, to see her youngest grandchild — that's me — graduate from college...". The only problem with this story
is that it's not true.
Ministers skeptical on
Elizabeth Warren. "It will take more than an impromptu endorsement by Governor Patrick to make an intellectually compelling
case why Elizabeth Warren deserves to be the next senator," said the Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III, referring to the state's governor,
Deval Patrick, who is black. [...] "It is within bounds to raise the question of whether or not a white woman used the minority card for her
professional advantage," said Rivers.
Elizabeth Warren, a bump becomes a hurdle. The episode could have been a minor nuisance for the campaign.
In a race in which the economy, jobs and debt are the overriding issues, it's unlikely that whether Warren is Native American
would matter all that much to voters. But Warren has turned what could have been a small problem into a major story line
by not coming out with everything she knew about the episode from the start.
Elizabeth Warren and Harvard Make False Federal Filings in Violation of Federal Law? Elizabeth Warren's confession to
the Boston Globe late last night [5/29/2012] that she self-identified as a "woman of color" to Harvard Law School twenty years

Does Elizabeth Warren not know that the internet exists? Does she not understand that facts (or dubious claims) can be checked by anyone?
Liz Warren just won't commit.
She's promised to get tough with Wall Street, but Elizabeth Warren yesterday [5/29/2012] refused to commit to one-on-one debates with
hard-charging opponent Marisa DeFranco — a dodge one leading Democratic analyst said could raise questions about whether the
party elite's favorite has what it takes.
Elizabeth Warren did wrong: Elizabeth Warren's acknowledgment Wednesday night [5/30/2012] that she had formally

Warren May Face Primary Challenge.
Massachusetts Democratic Party leaders had hoped Elizabeth Warren could train her focus on Sen. Scott Brown after the state

Elizabeth Warren stays mum on heritage,

Independent voters call
Elizabeth Warren's Native American controversy a "non-issue". Reporters from The Republican and MassLive.com
interviewed 24 voters from around the state about the controversy over Warren's Native American ancestry.
Responses broke down largely along party lines: Republicans said Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, was wrong
to list her alleged Native American ancestry in law directories and elsewhere during her time at Harvard. Democrats
said the issue is an irrelevant diversion from Warren's views.

In light of everything else on this page, this last item reinforces my ongoing assertion that

Harvard's Culture of Corruption. As Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and her Harvard partners
in crime are learning, academic fraud is not as easy to get away with as it used to be in the good old days before the
emergence of a vigilant alternative media. Writing for Breitbart, Michael Patrick Leahy revealed on Friday a spring
1993 article that listed Warren as one of approximately 250 "women of color" in legal academia. The article was
published in what was then called the Harvard Women's Law Journal and would have been released roughly when Warren
was being considered for tenure.
Former Harvard Admin Throws Warren
Under the Bus. In the reaction to the Boston Globe's controversial article on Harvard's EEOC reports which listed Elizabeth Warren
as a Native American, one particular revelation has gone largely unnoticed. Alan Ray, the former administrator who filed diversity reports
during Warren's tenure, distances the university from any responsibility for erroneously listing her as a Native American.

Please forgive me for doctoring up the headline above. I did it as a favor to the English language. Headlines

spring of 1993, three years before Harvard Law School first publicly stated she was "a woman of color," Elizabeth Warren likely made that
claim while teaching at Harvard, and at approximately the same time the faculty was considering her for a tenured position. Warren,
now running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, told Politico as recently as May 15 that she had "no idea"
why a Harvard Law School spokesman called her a "woman of color" in a 1996 Harvard Crimson article and a 1997 Fordham Law Review

Elizabeth Warren: Mom says I'm Native American.
An exasperated Elizabeth Warren told reporters Thursday [5/24/2012] that she's certain about her Native American roots "because
my mother told me so." Surrounded by a group of reporters, the Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate was repeatedly
questioned about why she hasn't produced documentation to prove that she is part Native American. After several minutes
of grilling, Warren said, "I am proud of my family and I am proud of my heritage."

stonewalling. Elizabeth Warren is stonewalling questions about whether or not she is a member of a minority
group. Warren says she learned she is part Cherokee from 'family lore.' She has also come under fire for a
minority listing in a law school directory, and for two schools, Harvard Law and the University of Pennsylvania touting
her as a minority hire.

This well-educated, highly paid, much-honored (she was a consumer protection adviser to President Obama) member of America's upper
1 percent went looking for people "who are like I am" among Native Americans?
Cheap ploys demean true sacrifices. She might have gotten away with not
having any documentation to back up the identity she claimed, if only she'd exhibited some contrition, but what's making Elizabeth Warren a pariah, even among liberal
sympathizers, is that she still doesn't have a clue of how egregiously exploitative she appears to be. That brazen sense of entitlement, so unattractive, apparently
makes humility impossible, even if it's feigned for the purpose of public relations.

Elizabeth Warren's campaign for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts hasn't exactly gone according to plan. She has gone from one of the Democrat's top recruits of

Velveeta cheese spread, and mayonnaise, Warren offered up her Cherokee family's traditional crab omelet. All right, so those recipes were Pierre

Faux-cahontas meets affirmative action. Republicans pointed out the absurdity of Warren

Too good to check: Did Elizabeth Warren
