Elizabeth Warren’s ancestor traced back to Trail of Tears! …On the side holding the guns.
Yeah, when’s that primary in Massachusetts, again? Because the general election is going to be a trip: …the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in | Read More »
Did Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN PRI) actually claim minority status for her own benefit, after all?
I hate to admit being wrong, of course, but I’m pretty much stuck here. You see, last week I RedHotted a post where in passing I more or less indicated that I didn’t think that it was particularly fair to ding MA senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren for her claims of Native American ancestry. When I read the story, it seemed that she had merely repeated | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN PRI) declares Barack Obama unevolved.
No, really, that’s what she said. The exact statement was “I want to see the president evolve [on same-sex marriage] because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right…” – with the implication being that anybody who does not support same-sex marriage is not, ah, fully evolved. Funny thing about that.
Elizabeth Warren’s inaccurate Karl Rove whining.
So let me set the background, here. Crossroads GPS is a 501(c)(4) associated with American Crossroads (a 527 advocacy group which has Karl Rove advising it; this will be important later), and it put out this ad on Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren (who is running, of course, against Republican Senator Scott Brown). Said ad helpfully points out that Warren was up to her eyeballs | Read More »
Does Elizabeth Warren *also* support spitting on our troops?
I ask this because back at the beginning of October Ms. Warren seemed to be very much in favor of the entire Occupy Wall Street ‘thing.’ As the Boston Globe noted: “All of the candidates expressed support for the controversial protesters who are part of the “Occupy Boston” movement downtown.” The question then becomes: does that support include the members of Occupy Boston who went | Read More »
Liz Warren: pig-ignorant about her own salary?
You know, I’m starting to understand why Liz Warren has all these weird opinions on how value is actually created: she’s just a creature of her environment. This one is a little involved, so bear with me. Thursday, Politico put out a story on the sacrificial lamb candidate for MA-SEN’s upcoming Democratic primary that noted that Warren’s rhetoric about government transparency didn’t extend to her | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren will raise taxes on the poor.
To set the scene: below is an annotated excerpt from the ‘independent’ video that is currently causing shortness of breath (and soon probably lightness of wallet) among the contingent of the Online Left who really and truly believe that their professional politician class is avoiding full-throated, Huey Long-style, Left-populist rants for no good reason. Well, Elizabeth Warren, new-minted sacrificial lamb Democratic candidate for MA-SEN, is | Read More »
Barack Obama throws Elizabeth Warren under the bus.
Or, as Jake Tapper/Jake Tapper’s editor* put it, “President Obama Picks Former Ohio Attorney General to Run Consumer Bureau, Bypassing Woman Who First Came Up With the Idea.” I agree with Ed Morrissey: that’s not really the headline that you want to see in this kind of awkward situation. I mocked the elevated importance that the Online Left has given both Warren and the Consumer | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren (Who?) CFPB nomination on indefinite hiatus.
The Who? in the title reflects the fact that Elizabeth Warren is more or less unknown outside of Activist Left circles, where she is generally considered to be a secular saint*. Warren would also be the first head of the “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” (CFPB) mandated by Dodd-Frank, except for the minor detail that the last thing we need right now is yet another regulatory | Read More »
THE RETURN OF ELIZABETH WARREN!!!!!
Yes, yes, I know: who? I invite the reader to go back to an understated post of mine from September 2010 entitled “Elizabeth Warren will rise from the sea to destroy us all!“: essentially, it was being argued by the Left that appointing this woman to be the first head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) would save the House of Representatives for the | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren will rise from the sea to destroy us all!
Last month I implied that one of the signs of DOOM in November would be an increased number of convoluted theories about how to ensure Democratic dominance. Ben Domenech over at The New Ledger has links to the latest one, which is apparently resting on the core assumption that two years of Democratic disillusionment with an administration that is excellent at betrayal, yet incompetent at | Read More »
