  • VANITY: Why I believe the Clinton E-Mail scandal is her doom

    03/04/2015 9:05:59 AM PST · by Buckeye Battle Cry · 47 replies
    That the New York Times broke this story on Hillary running State through off-the-record e-mail systems/servers is quite telling. Team Obama does not want Hillary succeeding Barack. He sees Elizabeth Warren as a much more worthy successor to his revolution. Besides Obama detests Sid Vicious Blumenthal. That Hillary was using him as her de facto deputy at State must enrage Obama since Obama specifically dictated that Blumenthal is to have ZERO official dealings with HIS administration. This scandal has legs specifically because El Jefe Obama wants it to. Hillary is in DEEP Kim Chee. Your thoughts?

    An old chestnut among pundits is to say that Republicans have become an extremist party out of touch with everyday, average Americans. It's so frequently stated that many Republicans even believe it. But as we've written before, it's the Democratic Party that has moved to the extreme.

    Warren, who is closely aligned with progressive union groups, ripped Walker in a tweet Saturday for what some saw as a comparison between union members and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria: "If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends.” In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Walker said, “If I can take on 100,000 protestors, I can do the same across the world.” Walker, a possible 2016 presidential candidate for the GOP, tried to walk back his comments after his...

    Her team is famous for playing mean, and potential competitors are afraid to enter the ring. It seems everyone on the activist left of the Democratic party wants Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary Clinton. The New York Working Families Party, born out of the infamous and disbanded ACORN empire, has endorsed her. A new YouGov poll paid for by Warren backers purports to show that once voters are familiar with the stances of both women, Warren will beat Hillary in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Warren, who was elected to the Senate from Massachusetts only four years ago, has refused...

    As we inch closer to the 2016 presidential election, many continue to question whether Democrats will put up a challenger against Hillary Clinton, who all but seems to have locked down her party's nomination. During an interview with former Obama White House advisor David Axelrod yesterday, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt asked if Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has a chance at defeating Clinton. The answer was a diplomatic "no." HH: Can Elizabeth Warren beat her? DA: I don’t think Elizabeth, I know Elizabeth Warren well, and my strong feeling is she’s not going to run. I think she’s trying to...

    MoveOn.org wants Elizabeth Warren to run for president -- so much so that it has commissioned a poll with the very clear purpose of making Warren's potential candidacy look as good as possible. Mission accomplished. The just-released poll from YouGov shows Warren ahead of Clinton 31 percent to 24 percent in Iowa and 30-27 in New Hampshire. How do you get results so far afield of any polling we've seen to date? You say a bunch of positive/liberal-friendly things about Warren before you ask the head-to-head question.

    In a sign of the growing pressure Hillary Clinton faces from the left, the Working Families Party is considering backing the movement to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for President, the Daily News has learned. One person said the effort was not so much a bid to get the Massachusetts senator to run but to “Warrenize Hillary” by pushing her to adopt more liberal policies.

    U. S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren does not have to announce anything. All the Massachusetts Democrat freshman senator has to do is just stand there and wait for Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democrat Party nominee for president, to blow it. And Hillary just might do that, just as she did in 2008, when Barack Obama came out of nowhere to humiliate her when he snatched the party nomination away. Back then, like now, Clinton was also the prohibitive favorite.

Democracy for America (DFA) announced this week that it will be supporting seven progressive Chicago Aldermen that the group says Emanuel, President Obama’s former White House chief of staff, has attacked. The DFA’s effort highlights the ever-more apparent rift in the Democratic Party between the progressive so-called Warren-wing of the party and more establishment Democrats.

    It's interesting to hear Obama talk these days. His SOTU was pure bunk, as usual (What did anyone expect?). What this small missive is about is something far different. Obama has sucked the air out of the Democratic room. That's right, Hillary! may be the front runner, but she's far from got the nomination locked up, especially in the wake of 2008, where Obama showed she can be beaten. Naturally, being a Clinton, bygones will not be bygones, and while HW and Bill may be friends, Hillary! will not forget, or forgive. So far, if one looks at the playing...

But we are under attack,” Warren told worshipers at the Twelfth Baptist Church, where she was presented a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Award. “There are those who want to reverse those gains.

    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...

    US Senator Elizabeth Warren has been a liberal favourite since her election in 2012. An outspoken critic of big business and a proponent of more regulation on the banking industry, the Massachusetts Democrat earlier this month led an effort to stop the $1.1tn government funding bill because it included changes to the 2010 Dodd-Frank law that imposed strict rules on Wall Street. Now Warren’s liberal supporters are touting her as a viable alternative to former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton for president in 2016. The left-liberal website MoveOn.org recently launched a campaign to draft Warren...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) took to Twitter on Tuesday to criticize the FDA’s proposed new policy on blood donations from gay men, saying that while the recommendation is a “step forward” it is still “discriminatory.” The liberal legislator and potential 2016 presidential candidate tweeted that the FDA must “have courage to set policies based on science” in order to “commit to building a bigger, safer blood supply through risk-based screenings.” The policy, introduced Tuesday by FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, would replace a 30-year-old ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men with a new rule permitting donations from men...

In 2010, after the aggressor surfaced in the comments section of theatlantic.com, Hatfill’s lawyers made their move.

    The word on Elizabeth Warren - the Democratic Massachusetts senator who fomented the opposition last week to a rollback of financial regulations in the bill funding the government - is that she's the left's answer to shut-'em-down Ted Cruz. In a recent Washington Post column, Dana Milbank concluded that Warren is more like former South Carolina senator Jim DeMint, the Republican ideologue who left his elective office to better lead the far right to glory. These assessments miss one crucial difference between Warren and the right-wingers: She has crossover appeal. More importantly, so does Warrenism. Cruz and DeMint can claim...

    Crony Capitalism: Sen. Elizabeth Warren delivered a stemwinder speech last Friday 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, D-Mass., was attacking a "dangerous provision" in the so-called cromnibus spending bill that, she said, stripped a part of Dodd-Frank that big banks, particularly Citigroup, don't like. Her speech had the left slobbering over itself. Michael Tomasky, writing for the Daily Beast, said Warren's "weekend heroics" made her the "most powerful Democrat in America."

Rather, the newest member of Senate leadership said her focus is fighting for “hard working families who just want a fighting chance.” “Would you tell these independent groups, ‘Give it up!,’ you’re just never going to run,” asked NPR’s Inskeep....

    Darryl Hart has a thought-provoking post today on Rick Warren’s recent comments about what Rome and Protestants have in common. Warren’s comments are a sterling reminder of the importance of knowing our church history. Yes, Christians of all the major traditions receive the biblical and catholic truths of the Holy Trinity and the two natures of Christ. Yes, confessional Protestants are committed to the protection of unborn humans and the affirmation of a creational order for sex and marriage—is Pope Francis committed to the latter?—but we share these commitments with Mormons, Jews, and even some atheists.  Obviously, these concerns, as...

Progressive activists haven’t agreed on what to call the movement urging Elizabeth Warren to run for president, but they largely concur on this: with every recent anti-establishment move the Massachusetts senator grows more attractive as a 2016 candidate, both in her own right and as a progressive foil for Hillary Clinton. Such sentiments were on vivid display this week at RootsCamp, a gathering of some 2,000 progressive activists held in Washington, D.C. The event was held as Warren and others on the left have been denouncing the “cromnibus” spending...

While this move may upset Boehner, who has now bent his will to Obama's desire, would you support Cruz (or whomever may wish to do this - Warren?) doing this?

We were putting money into funding Ebola many years ago and the republicans have cut funding overall for medical research, for the...

    Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes began her one-week sprint to Election Day flanked by one of the most popular members of her party. Before the week’s up, she’ll be joined again by a former president and his wife, whom many believe will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016 if she decides to run. Grimes was joined by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., before about 400 supporters at the Copper and Kings Distillery in Louisville Tuesday, and the two hemmed close to Grimes’ primary talking points on the campaign trail. In Warren, who made her second appearance...

    The Hill ^ | 10/28/2014 | By Kevin Cirilli
    The Democratic field in 2016 has more than enough room for two women competing to be the nation’s first female president, according to liberal activists. They pour scorn on the notion that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), or any other woman, ought to step aside if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launches a second quest for the White House. "The idea that you can't run because there's somebody else who looks like you running? Oh my God, what would all the white men do?" quipped Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW). "I think the argument that...

    An Elizabeth Warren White House would be a place where men in the media or in Congress wouldn’t be able to criticize her policy or political ideology or they’d risk being slapped as sexist. At least that’s the impression she left after a recent CNN appearance. In the interview, she said, “It’s hard to change these big, male dominated institutions. ... You know, others have said it before me. If you don’t have a seat at the table, you’re probably on the menu.” A few things are evident from Warren’s statement: First, she continues to push the phony War on...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's been treated differently in elected office because she's a woman. While campaigning for Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in Colorado, the Massachusetts Democrat answered with a resounding “yes” when asked on CNN if male senators have treated her differently because of her gender. When asked to elaborate, Warren replied “Nope” twice, but did oblige that she didn't find her treatment surprising.

    Elizabeth Warren: The Rich White Man’s CandidatePosted By Daniel Greenfield On October 15, 2014 @ 12:58 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 7 Comments The political establishment with its clouds of consultants, advisers and fixers rarely bothers glancing out of its enclaves of wealth and privilege to take stock of America. Instead it taps at the virtual pages of the paper of record on the appropriate app, nods its head at having its prejudices confirmed and moves on.And that is why the Elizabeth Warren political express remains convinced that a wealthy professor and government insider who occasionally says all the approved...

    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is taking swings at Charlie Baker on behalf of Martha Coakley, blasting the Republican gubernatorial candidate’s gaffe last week in a fundraising message sent out yesterday, saying that when he “dismissed a woman news reporter by calling her ‘sweetheart’ a lot of people questioned Charlie’s attitude toward women.” “My colleague Kristen Gillibrand recently pointed out that even now, in 2014, sometimes she feels like she’s living in a Mad Men episode,” Warren wrote in the message, referencing an AMC television series set in the not-yet liberated 1960s. “When I hear some of the things that Republicans...
