  • Warren Changes Media Strategy Amid Low Poll Numbers (Squaw make heap big schmooze with news)

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 20, 2017 | Madeleine Weast
    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 exit doors." Last week, however, the Massachusetts Democrat held three open-to-media events in her home state. Each event was followed by lengthy huddles with reporters. [Snip] Terry MacCormack, the Massachusetts Republican Party's communication director, does not find...

    President Trump said in an interview broadcast Saturday night that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) launching a presidential bid against him would be "a dream come true." “I think she’d lose so badly," Trump said during an interview on Fox News' "Watters' World." Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail....

    The Caribbean Radio ^ | March 15, 2017 | Richard Lawless
    New York Senator Charles Schumer was instrumental in getting Bharara appointed to that position and in return was asked from time to time to do favors for the senator and his allies. Up until recently, President Trump had no idea what was really going on. Once President Trump’s staff understood the quid pro quo, they had no choice but to ask for Bharara’s resignation. In 2015, Puerto Rico defaulted on $70 billion in municipal bonds. Those involved panicked. There was ample evidence that the issuing agencies were technically bankrupt when they issued the bonds and that they purchased fraudulent credit...

Warren is just doing what she always does best. Playing to the far left base of her party.

    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. She spent the primary election virtually huddled under her desk while progressives implored her to help send their once-in-a-lifetime socialist dream, Bernie Sanders, to the White House.

    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. In fact, at the time Warren wrote an extensive Facebook post, defending her support for Carson even though "he is not the nominee I wanted." "But 'the nominee I...

On the heels of recent polling which suggests that current Bay State Senator Elizabeth Warren’s popularity has taken a hit, Lucas makes the case for sending Mr. Brady to Washington.

    The yearly ritual of submitting tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may not be something most of us look forward to doing, but do we really want the federal government to do it for us? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has proposed legislation that would require the IRS to offer you the convenience of doing your taxes for you. The actual bill would require the IRS to create programs that help taxpayers process and file their federal taxes for free. Sen.

    Sorry, not sorry, Fauxcahontas. Elizabeth Warren allegedly rode something of a wave following her oh-so-nefarious “silencing” on the floor of the Senate. If the press was to be believed (they’re not) the decision to shut Warren down was a vile act of misogyny, and breach of decorum, a Nazi-like violation of the 1st Amendment, and a bad political play all rolled into one. It was, we were told, a defining moment that would generate sympathy and catapult her toward the highest office in the land.

    n a stunning turn of political events, Republicans in the U.S. Senate have made Sen. Elizabeth Warren the face of the Democrat Party. That is an accomplishment that almost equals the status of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, the "Lion of the Senate," whose seat Warren occupies. Kennedy was a lot of things, including being a solid liberal. Unlike Warren, though, he was more than just talk. He got things done in the Senate and for his state. But he never stirred the passions of the true believers of the lunatic left the way Warren has.

Last Tuesday, McConnell, R-Kentucky, defended the use of rule 19, a regulation that bars Senators from speaking negatively about one another during debate over U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s Attorney General. “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” McConnell said on the Senate floor ending Warren’s speech.

    President Trump's shocking victory in November and the tumultuous beginning of his presidency have shattered many assumptions about American politics. For many liberals and progressives, the weeks since Donald Trump’s inauguration have been filled with soul-searching and even confusion about their place in American politics. Trump’s flurry of executive orders, coming in quick succession on matters ranging from federal employment and immigration to reorganizing the National Security Council, have driven deep division within the Democratic party. The reaction to Trump’s action have pitted pragmatic, center-left politicians against protesting activists forming “The Resistance.” Many Democratic disagreements with Trump’s executive orders are...

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. While there has been much media consternation over the populist direction of the Republican Party under President Donald Trump, there hasn’t been much discussion of...

    Last Friday, President Trump signed an executive order listing “Core Principles” for reforming financial regulation, including the Democrats’ 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau it created. Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren could hardly object to some of the principles — for example, “prevent taxpayer-funded bailouts” or “empower Americans to make independent financial decisions and informed choices in the marketplace” — because she herself had previously expressed similar sentiments. So instead, she quickly accused Republicans of “rushing to unleash the big banks” and “gut the consumer agency that has forced banks to give $12 billion back to customers they...

    Scott has been mischievously promoting Keith Ellison to head the DNC. In the same spirit, I enthusiastically endorse Elizabeth Warren as the new face of the Democratic Party.

Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who was presiding over the the Senate during the Massachusetts Democrat's speech - who at times was repeating words being said to him by GOP Senate floor staff - initially interrupted Warren to...

    Liberal icon Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the scourge of the Trump administration, grilling the president’s Cabinet nominees at every chance and coming out against Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch within minutes of his nomination. The moves are what one might expect from a presidential aspirant. But Warren, who is placed in the top tier of likely Democratic 2020 candidates in very-early polls, first has to keep her Massachusetts Senate seat. It’s not a sure thing. According to WBUR poll, just 44 percent of state voters think she deserves re-election, while a plurality – 46 percent – believes she doesn’t...

    Liberal firebrand and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed President Trump Cabinet picks Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) and Steven Mnuchin Wednesday in a series of tweets accusing Trump of neglecting his promise to "drain the swamp." The Democratic senator accused both Price and Mnuchin of lying during their hearings as nominees to lead the Health and Treasury departments, respectively. "This isn't a game Senate GOP. The safety of our economy and health of our people could be in the hands of two men who lied to the US Senate," Warren said. .@HHSGov nom Price lied to the Senate about a sweetheart...

    Far left Senator Elizabeth Warren was back in the news this week after it was discovered she failed to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit provided to her by Bank of America. Warren regularly lashes out at banks – except when she needs them. Today Warren stopped by the Boston Airport to lead leftist drones in bizarre repetition chanting. The is the type of nonsense coming from the coastal Democrat Party today. "Warren: We’ve all heard about this order that President has given. It is illegal. It is unconstitutional. It will be overturned. An attack on anyone for their...

    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.WarrenÂ’s staff claims that she is not required by law to report it. This may well be true. A loophole seems to permit her non-disclosure But WarrenÂ’s reliance on the loophole strikes a discordant note, given...

    Complete Headline: Elizabeth Warren responds to Trump’s executive orders: Why not declare January 25 as 'Anti-Immigrant Day?' In the wake the early local backlash to President Donald Trump's executive orders Wednesday, Massachusetts's most outspoken Trump critic waited until the evening to make a statement. And when it came, Sen. Elizabeth Warren's remarks were delivered in the form of biting sarcasm. “Why not just declare January 25 as the Trump Administration’s First Anti-Immigrant Day?” Warren asked rhetorically, referring to Trump’s actions to fulfill his aggressive campaign pledges on immigration. "None of President Trump's actions today will make us safer," the Democratic...

    Tyler DurdenJanuary 23, 2017 As Democrats have struggled to rebuild in the "Post-Trump" era, one coping mechanism employed has been to focus on their potential contenders for the White House in 2020. In fact, about a month ago we published a list, crafted by The Hill, of the top names being tossed around that were expected to make a bid for the Democratic nomination in four years (see "Here's Who Democrats Say Are The Top 15 Presidential Candidates For 2020"). Not surprisingly, and proving that Democrats learned very little from the 2016 election cycle, the list included several well-known establishment...

    The normally sedate Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions became the scene of a Fourth of July display when Sen. Elizabeth Warren led her fellow party members in demanding a second round of questioning of Betsy DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice as secretary of education. (Watch video at link) The Massachusetts Democrat asked committee Chairman Sen. Lamar Alexander for a second day of hearings, and told him that if hearings were to be extended for an additional day, she would have “many, many more” questions to ask of DeVos. The Tennessee Republican observed that precedent didn’t call for...

    Elizabeth Warren needs to visit the bar at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, down the street from the White House. There -- if she really wants to soothe her feigned indignation over the new president -- she can order a martini. When the bartender slips her the bill, however, she will be shocked to find that it costs $100. That's right, $100 for a martini. That's what you used to pay for a hotel room. It's enough to sober you up. It's no wonder Donald Trump doesn't drin
