  • Elizabeth Warren Tries Really Hard To Cry On Cue For Gun Control Rally

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts tried working herself up at Wednesday’s gun control rally outside the White House but couldn’t manage to find her stride despite being filmed by MSNBC. Warren was asked what was going through her mind, and she immediately blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for a lack of gun control reform. “The NRA has held Congress hostage for years now,” Warren said. “These young people have shown up to spring us free, to say you’re not here to do the work of the gun lobby. You’re here to do the work of the American people....

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren sought Sunday to bolster her shaky claims of Cherokee ancestry with the story of how her racist grandparents drove her parents to elope. But Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes says that account has its own credibility issues. Ms. Barnes, who said her research into Ms. Warren's family found "no evidence" of Native American ancestry, has challenged key elements of the senator's tale of how her parents, Pauline Reed and Donald Herring, defied his parents by running off to marry. [Snip] After Ms. Warren said in the Globe that her mother told her "nobody came to her wedding at...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., argued that her family’s claim to Native American ancestry is an indelible part of who she is — something that can never be taken away. Warren defended herself on NBC’s “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” Sunday morning when asked what she thought about taking an easily accessible DNA test, such as those offered by 23andMe or Ancestry, to settle the ongoing controversy over her heritage. Rather than address that question specifically, Warren told a story about how her mother and father, born and raised in Oklahoma, met as teenagers and fell head-over-heels in love. Her...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is when pressed about her claims of Native-American heritage. She was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, "Warren must resolve debate on heritage, which said a DNA test would "permanently resolve the issue." “Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is not intimated by the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre after he singled her and other liberal Democrats out in a speech Thursday smearing the tide of "socialism." Furthermore, in the Massachusetts senator's tweet rager Thursday evening, she pledged to fight the NRA "at every turn" in advocating for stricter gun control measures and also plugged a fundraising link to her re-election campaign. "Wayne LaPierre can call me whatever he wants. He doesn't scare me," Warren said hours after LaPierre's speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. "You know what scares Wayne LaPierre? That...

    For just $69, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren could settle the question of her ancestry once and for all. That is the sale price (regularly $99) that Ancestry DNA is charging for searching your family genealogy. Millions of Americans have done it, either through Ancestry, 23andMe or some other ancestry research organization. Better still, she could walk down the street in Cambridge and consult with fellow Harvard educator Henry Louis Gates Jr., who hosts the popular and fascinating PBS television program “Finding Your Roots.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says President Donald Trump disrespects Native Americans by referring to her as "Pocahontas," and she says that while she's not enrolled in any tribe, "I never used my family tree to get a break or ... advance my career." Warren says her parents married in Oklahoma in 1932, and that "the story they lived will always be a part of me. And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away." Trump frequently refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock the Democrat's claims about being part...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren addressed claims of her Native American heritage at an American Indian policy summit on Wednesday. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that Warren was conspicuously not scheduled to speak at the Tribal Nations Policy Summit in Washington, DC, despite being the only Senator to claim a Native American heritage. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren Absent From Tribal Nations Policy Summit) Warren apparently changed her mind about appearing at the summit and made a surprise appearance on Wednesday, addressing allegations that she has lied about her ancestry. Cherokee genealogists have traced Warren’s family tree and found no evidence to support...

    In an interview on MSNBC's All In, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) fretted about the employment future of DREAMers if they are not given legal status in the upcoming budget bill deal. She also denounced the "deportation cloud" over 800,000 DREAMers, that "on a whim," the president can just say, "done, you are out of here." "If these people don't have legal status, then how is it they're going to work in the United States? How are they going to support themselves? How are they going to support their families?" the Senator asked. "We built a country based on the notion...

    The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the brainchild of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), is having difficulty accounting for laptops belonging to the agency. According to the CFPB’s Inspector General, a number of laptops have gone missing despite the agency sending out an “early alert memorandum,” on how to prevent inventory loss back in 2016. National Law Review reports: The CFPB’s Office of Inspector General has issued a report indicating that, in performing an audit of the CFPB’s encryption of data on mobile devices issued to staff members, the OIG found the CFPB had not yet completed all of the steps previously...

    Well, then. We’ve heard a few hot takes surrounding the classified House Intelligence Committee memo that allegedly outlines FISA abuses during the 2016 campaign, but this one from Resistance leader Scott Dworkin is really something special. Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff has come out against releasing the memo, but Dworkin is actually claiming that anyone who wants the memo released — and that includes a number of Republican members of Congress — is a traitor. Scott Dworkin ✔ @funder There is absolutely no piece of paper like this stupid memo Devin Nunes is blabbing about that changes the fact dozens of...

    FULL TITLE: After Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Freezes Data Collecting, Sen. Elizabeth Warren Demands Reversal A federal court last week again ruled in favor of Mick Mulvaney as the rightful head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which strengthens his hand on such issues as the recent decision to freeze data collection in light of cybersecurity concerns. But Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who conceived the idea of the consumer agency, which critics say has too much and often undefined power, strongly objected to the agency’s temporary halt in data collection just last week. “CFPB cannot fulfill its core functions without...
  • Tax cuts drive business back to the Motor City

    Fiat Chrysler will make Ram trucks in Michigan instead of Mexico beginning in 2020, and the company says this will mean 2,500 extra jobs at the plant in Warren, Detroit’s largest suburb. While this isn’t the first bit of good economic news in the wake of big corporate tax cuts Republicans just passed, it’s the one that cheers us the most, because it best reflects the way lower corporate taxes work. The key is not bigger profits but increased competitiveness. *snip* More companies will set up more business in the U.S., because it’s now easier to compete by doing so....

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts railed against GOP-led tax cuts Wednesday before admitting that they will likely result in lower electricity rates for people in her home state. Warren railed against the tax cuts during an interview on Fox News, but back-peddled after interviewer Bret Baier mentioned energy companies are planning rate cuts in response to reduced corporate taxes. “And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that,” she said, before quickly pivoting back to her original criticism: “It is $1.5 trillion the Republicans gave away to billionaires and to giant corporations.” Massachusetts energy giant Eversource announced earlier this...

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts responded to President Donald Trump’s Thursday tweet, in which he questioned the concept of global warming, by announcing that she ‘believes in science’ — only to be questioned relentlessly on how exactly her scientific belief applies to issues like abortion or her supposed Native American ancestry. Trump’s tweet, which seems to conflate weather and the broader environmental trends climate scientists attempt to model, reiterates his often repeated claim that international agreements designed to combat global warming, like the Paris accords, amount to a cynical attempt by foreign nations to drain U.S. resources.

    When state construction crews begin work on westbound Interstate 696 in Roseville this spring, they’ll have to knock off the noise at some point in the night. The Roseville City Council recently rejected a request by the Michigan Department of Transportation to work 24 hours a day, seven days week on the $90 million project. “We are worried about the peace and quiet of our residents who live near the freeway as they are trying to get to sleep at night,” said Mayor Pro Tem Jan Haggerty. MDOT plans to shut down the entire span of westbound I-696 from Interstate...

The opportunistic and timely #MeToo movement was ramped up to new hysterics when President Trump responded to Gillibrand. But this isn't the first time Senator Gillibrand has exploited the sexual abuse card and then fleeing when details don't fit her desired political conclusion....

    Rosy economic statistics showing a robust 3.3% annual growth in gross domestic product and an all time low in the unemployment rate for Hispanics prompted former President Barack Obama to assert that "the real credit for this good news belongs to me." "Trump wants everyone to believe that his relaxation of regulations and championing of tax cuts deserve the credit," Obama said. "What he and everyone else is overlooking is that the stringent regulations and high taxes that prevailed for my eight year term built up the 'coiled spring' pressure that, when released by Trump's moves, allowed the economy to...
