  • Supreme Court gives president power to fire head of financial watchdog agency created by Elizabeth Warren

    The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional, determining that its head must be removable at the will of the president. The decision reduces the power of the agency, the brainchild of Elizabeth Warren, and is a victory for business groups. The court stopped short, though, of eliminating the bureau, as sought by conservatives. "The agency may therefore continue to operate, but its Director, in light of our decision, must be removable by the President at will," Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the 5-4 majority. The decision agreed with a California-based...
  • Column: I love Elizabeth Warren, but I hope Joe Biden doesn’t choose her for a running mate

    I love Elizabeth Warren. She’s got the the intellectual breadth of a policy wonk; the strategic touch of a U.S. senator who’s served on banking, housing, health, education, labor and pensions committees; the gentle, no-nonsense grace of a longtime schoolteacher; a progressive agenda; boundless energy; a sly wit and an enormous heart.

    Joe Biden has officially formed a transition team that will be led by former Delaware Sen. Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden adviser who also led his transition as vice president in 2008, a Biden campaign aide confirmed to CNN. This team is a preliminary group that will focus on developing the infrastructure of the transition effort. The full rollout of the team is expected later this fall, the aide said, noting that the timing of today's announcement falls in line with the timeline of past non-incumbent candidates who developed a transition team.
  • Biden VP Pick Odds: Susan Rice Surges; Harris Strengthens

    06/22/2020 8:06:26 AM PDT · by kevcol · 79 replies ^ | June 21, 2020 | Michael Kates
    Susan Rice, a former UN ambassador and national security advisor under President Barack Obama, has skyrocketed up the odds to be Joe Biden’s running mate. Rice is +650 in odds posted Sunday at 888sports' UK-facing betting site, the third choice just behind Florida Rep. Val Demings, who is at +550. California Sen. Kamala Harris remains the favorite at -134. That marks Harris' best odds ever. Ten days ago, Rice was +2500 to be Biden’s running mate before reports emerged that she was one of six women seen as serious contenders and on the short list.

    Vice President Amy Klobuchar is not in the cards. The Minnesota senator withdrew her name from the list of possible running mates Thursday night, reasoning Democratic nominee Joe Biden should use the “moment to put a woman of color” on his ticket.
  • Planned Parenthood Plays with Pro-Life Language in Biden Endorsement

    06/18/2020 10:24:40 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 5 replies ^ | June 18, 2020 | Katie Yoder
    The nation’s largest abortion provider regularly claims that it provides “life-saving” services while highlighting “pro-life” abortionists. But as it continues toying with double entendres, Planned Parenthood’s language appears less as a mere coincidence and more as a blatant mockery of the pro-life movement. The latest example came on June 15, when Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the abortion giant’s political arm, announced its endorsement of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as he challenges President Trump in the upcoming election. According to Planned Parenthood’s acting president, the November election will be a matter of “life and death.” Speaking with NPR, Alexis McGill...

    It's impossible not to notice that the left has made a cottage industry out of trashing Republicans and conservatives as racists and "angry white guys" while elevating Democrats as the party of racial diversity. As the Washington Examiner pointed out, "Joe Biden's pledge to choose a woman as his running mate, and his consideration of several black female officeholders for the role, has spurred considerable chatter about diversity in the nation's second-highest office." Charles Curtis, a Republican, was the first individual "with acknowledged non-European ancestry" to become vice president, the outlet reported. Serving under Herbert Hoover from 1929 through 1933,...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) headlined a high-dollar fundraiser for Joe Biden (D) on Monday, helping the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee rake in his campaign’s biggest haul yet — $6 million from a virtual event with just 620 people in attendance. Monday’s Zoom fundraiser featuring Biden’s former rival was wildly successful, raising $6 million for the Biden Victory Fund, the joint fundraising operation between Biden’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). “Thank you for asking your friends to help me out,” Biden told Warren during the event. “It’s the biggest fundraiser we’ve ever had. And it’s all because of you.”

    Elizabeth Warren is among the top three choices for Joe Biden's running mate, according to his selection committee. Aides to Biden, the two-term vice president and now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, are seriously considering the Massachusetts senator and former White House hopeful, the Associated Press reported Friday. Warren's name has floated to the top of the short list, along with California Sen. Kamala Harris and Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice, as his vetting team enters the process's second stage. Pundits believe Warren could energize more liberal Democrats compared to Biden, but she's a septuagenarian like him and...

    This week, if there had been no pandemic, I would have been on leave, heading for Gettysburg in Pennsylvania - the site of the famous battle in the American Civil War of 1861-65. For some reason this conflict captured my interest as a child. I've always wanted to attend the Gettysburg College Civil War Institute's annual summer school. Sadly, that has been cancelled this year because of Covid-19. On frequent trips to the States, I used to buy a historical magazine about the war whose masthead slogan proclaimed: "For those who still hear the sound of the guns." This reference...
  • Warren Amendment Calls For The Destruction Of Confederate Monuments In Graveyards

    The Warren Amendment didn't just call changing the names of military bases. It called for the destruction of Confederate monuments inside military graveyards including Arlington Cemetery. During the voice vote, only Sens. Hawley and Cotton voiced opposition to the destruction of anything inside graveyards. Other Republicans on the committee were completely silent. Senate Republicans are now scrambling, believing Trump will veto the defense bill if it includes the Warren Amendment. The amendment was passed with a voice vote, so there's no record on how any individual senator voted. I was told, "this isn't the hill to die on"... I can't...

    WASHINGTON — The GOP-led Armed Services Committee has approved a motion requiring the Pentagon to rename military bases and assets named after Confederate leaders — defying President Trump, who warned them not to support the Elizabeth Warren-introduced measure. The committee on Wednesday approved the amendment to the annual defense bill which will establish a commission to rename all Pentagon assets — including ships, planes, buildings, military bases and equipment — that bear the name of Confederate generals within the next three years, Roll Call reported. Cities across America have begun removing statues honoring Confederate leaders as the nation engages in...

    Washington — The Senate Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the annual military spending bill that would require the Defense Department to change the names of military bases and assets named for Confederate leaders. A source familiar with the proceedings confirmed to CBS News that the GOP-led panel on Wednesday approved the amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) offered by Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts via voice vote. According to a summary of the NDAA released by the committee Thursday, the measure requires the Defense Department to rename posts and assets — streets, aircraft, ships, and...

    Republican senators rebelled against Donald Trump late Wednesday by voting to tell the Army to rename bases named after Confederate generals within the next three years. The Armed Services Committee, whose members include Trump ultra-loyalist Tom Cotton, voted behind closed doors for the move, Roll Call first reported. The voice vote was on an amendment to the annual Pentagon policy bill — the Defense Authorization Act — which was put forward by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat and former presidential candidate. It came hours after Donald Trump tweeted furiously that he will “not even consider” renaming Forts Bragg, Hood,...

    A former national surrogate for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., ripped into white congressional Democrats on Monday after they wore African-patterned garb and knelt in a demonstration against racism and police brutality. "I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that they draped these white people in kente cloth to 'honor' him. This has to be hell," author Frederick Joseph tweeted, also arguing that black Americans are "being pandered to, and ultimately, disrespected." In a tweet thread, he argued that Democrats were failing in their attempts to be helpful amid ongoing strife surrounding George Floyd's death. He specifically took aim...

    VIDEO Just as the Jacobins of the French Revolution ended up eating their own including Danton and Robespierre, we are now seeing the Jacobin Left in America doing the same. The latest example was when the the squishy liberal mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, was just denounced and booed because he would not agree to defunding the police department which, of course, would mean its abolition. So the question has to be asked, how long before the Jacobin Left demand the removal of the author of the 1994 crime bill, Joe Biden, from the Democrat ticket? If Frey is...

    The Democratic Party’s veepstakes may have narrowed down to two top contenders. Out of all the potential running mates thought to be on Joe Biden’s shortlist, only two — California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — spoke at the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention, which ended Saturday. “These things don’t happen by accident,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Post. “I think those two are getting an audition in Texas.”

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday joined protestors outside the White House after voicing outrage over law enforcement's decision to fire pepper balls and smoke canisters on crowds demonstrating in Lafayette Square in response to the death of George Floyd. Warren was seen walking through crowds with her husband, Bruce Mann, and her dog, Bailey. She briefly paused after a protestor asked her why President Trump had the military positioned there. "Because he’s wrong," said Warren, who was wearing mask. "He is imposing violence on our people. People are here to protest peacefully."
