  • Elizabeth Warren rejected by Native American voters on Super Tuesday

    Among the most notable voters who abandoned Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Super Tuesday were Native Americans. Warren spent decades claiming she was “part Cherokee and part Delaware” — even taking a disastrous DNA test to try to prove it. She was ultimately forced to apologize and admit the claim was bogus, as President Trump mocked her as “Pocahontas.” “I think that her claim and digging in her heels and the [DNA test] did hurt her,” Simon Moya-Smith, a 36-year-old Native American activist, told The Post. “That’s why I voted for Bernie on Super Tuesday, and I didn’t vote for...

    It wasn’t until August 8th, 2019, months into the unofficial start of the Democratic presidential primary, that Naomi Zikmund-Fisher threw her money behind Elizabeth Warren. The 49-year-old social worker from Superior Township, Mich., had supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary. But in Warren, she saw something different: a candidate who had translated Sanders’ progressive talking points into tangible policies, and one who might actually win. She deposited $2,800 – the maximum donation an individual can give a candidate during a primary – into Warren’s campaign. “I thought she had a good chance,” Zikmund-Fisher says. “I gave to...

    Democratic Massachusetts Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey called on the Trump administration to “reverse course” on a decision to deploy special Border Patrol tactical units in sanctuary cities to assist in the apprehension of illegal aliens. Warren and Markey delivered a joint letter addressed to the chiefs of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Saturday, deriding a decision by the administration to deploy CBP officers to sanctuary cities across the country. The two lawmakers also demanded answers to a number of questions about the operation.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Wednesday released a plan to fight “digital disinformation,” promising to “push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties” for disseminating false information related to U.S. elections. “Disinformation erodes our democracy, and Democrats must have a plan to address it,” she details in a Medium post, proclaiming President Trump “welcomed foreign interference in our elections, inviting interference from a host of countries that have an interest in the outcome, including Iran and China.” “He’s currently facing impeachment for putting his own political interests over the national interests of the United States – and...
  • Elizabeth Warren Takes Credit for Sponsoring Bills She Voted Against

    Free Beacon ^ | January 17, 2020 | Andrew Stiles
    Underperforming presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has portrayed herself as a bipartisan dealmaker by taking credit for sponsoring bills she ultimately voted against. "I do work with the other side," Warren said in October during a radio interview in New Hampshire. "I've gotten more than a dozen bills passed into law, and they've been bipartisan. And that's just been since Donald Trump has been elected president." A post on the "Fact Squad" section of Warren's campaign website similarly boasts that "Donald Trump has signed more than a dozen of Elizabeth's proposals into law" and lists 15 pieces of legislation Warren sponsored. Three of...

    If your home isn’t carbon neutral, Elizabeth Warren might not let you build it. And if that means no new homes get built, she’s OK with that. In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, the Massachusetts senator and fading presidential candidate talked about her Thunberg-lite plan to help end climate change. (Climate crisis? Catastrophe? What are we going with these days?) She promised “to do everything a president can do all by herself, that is, the things you don’t have to do by going to Congress.” This includes putting an end to energy mining and drilling on federal...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential contender Elizabeth Warren sought to re-energize her White House campaign in a New Year’s Eve speech on Tuesday, warning that “democracy hangs in the balance” five weeks before nominating contests begin in early February.In her home state of Massachusetts on the first anniversary of her campaign launch, Warren said President Donald Trump would “try to cheat his way through yet another election” if he is not removed from office after his impeachment by the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign website labeled Asian-American, Indian-American, Iranian-American and Pakistani-American billionaires as “white.” The Massachusetts senator’s campaign website includes a page on “wealth inequality,” which featured a since-deleted graphic breaking down the 400 wealthiest Americans by race. The graphic included three categories: black, white and Latino (the campaign uses the left-wing term “Latinx”). According to the graphic, only six of the top 400 wealthiest Americans are non-white — but that’s not accurate. The campaign appears to have classified at least 14 American billionaires of Asian, Indian, and Middle-Eastern descent as “white.”

    How timely. Fox News host Pete Hegseth mocked Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s slumping poll numbers and called her “Pocahontas” during the “Fox & Friends” Thanksgiving episode. During the segment about a poll that showed Warren’s support at 14%, Hegseth criticized the senator for saying the polls were not concerning. "It's always what politicians say when they're losing. Don't follow the polls, it doesn't matter," the host asserted. "I just love how optimistic she was. You've dropped actually in half from where you were before," guest host Dean Cain said. "That's bad news." “It’s Thanksgiving so it’s only fitting...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/27/2019 | Bruce Thompson
    Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has said that none of her tax-increase plans would hit average people, pledging not to "raise taxes on the middle class by one penny." Yet Warren and several other presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders, are pushing a financial transactions tax that would cost everyday people saving for the future. This plan is a retirement tax that would affect millions of middle-class people. Proponents of the financial transactions tax argue it is "tiny tax" that would only hit rich Wall Street speculators. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A financial transactions tax would hit every single...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., introduced a bill Wednesday that would posthumously revoke 20 Medals of Honor awarded to U.S. soldiers who slaughtered hundreds of Native Americans -- mostly women and children -- at the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890. The Remove the Stain Act accompanies a House version introduced earlier this year by Democrats Paul Cook of California, Denny Heck of Washington and Deb Haaland of New Mexico.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Thursday delivered a speech at Clark Atlanta University, and declared that it is time to adopt Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) legislation on reparations. Warren delivered a speech at the historically black university Thursday evening and stressed the need to pass Lee’s reparations legislation, which “establishes the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans.” “Let’s be clear: It’s time for our government to have a full-blown national conversation about reparations,” Warren wrote in a tweet containing a video of her remarks: “America was founded on principles of liberty and built on the backs...

    “Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy,” said a Thursday statement from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Warren issued the remark after sealing the endorsement of the radical activist group dubbed “Black Womxn For.” Warren has “a deep understanding of how racism and gender discrimination don’t just compound income inequality but are actually central to maintaining the status quo,” the group declared. The activist group prefaced its endorsement with a frightening picture of the 2016 presidential election, proclaiming that it “laid bare what many Black women, gender non-conforming, and non-binary, and queer folk...

    Warren says she'd talk to Bill Gates about what he'd pay under wealth tax: 'I promise it's not $100 billion' Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) responded to former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates’ reported concerns over what he would have to pay under the senator’s proposed tax on the wealthy. “I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views. @BillGates, if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion.)” Warren tweeted Wednesday. Gates spoke with The New York Times writer...

    The latest polling data from Morning Consult show former vice president Joe Biden climbing back into a stable lead in the Democratic presidential primary, after several weeks of running alongside Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren. Among Democratic-primary voters surveyed over the past week, 33 percent say they support Biden compared to just 21 percent who support Warren. Still in third place, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders comes in close behind Warren with 19 percent support. When asked who their second choice in the field would be, respondents who selected Sanders as their first choice preferred Biden to Warren as their next best...

    On the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren often tells the story of how she was fired from her first teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant, a pivotal moment that ultimately put her on a path to Harvard, the United States Senate, and quite possibly the presidency. But recently, several media outlets have questioned the veracity of these claims.

    Elizabeth Warren is determined to set herself apart from the rest of the Democrats-for-Socialism candidates running for president.Rather than an arch-foe of capitalism she’s presenting herself as its savior. Accordingly, in addition to redistributing the wealth of the filthy rich she intends to do the same to corporations, the wealth generators. As such she will introduce her Accountable Capitalism Act tomorrow.Under her bill corporations with more than $1 billion in annual revenue would be required to obtain a corporate charter from the federal government (currently granted by states). Such charters will mandate that companies not just consider the financial interests...

    RIVERDALE, N.J.—The Riverdale Board of Education approved a second-year teaching contract for a young Elizabeth Warren, documents show, contradicting the Democratic presidential candidate’s repeated claims that she was asked not to return to teaching after a single year because she was "visibly pregnant." Minutes of an April 21, 1971, Riverdale Board of Education meeting obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show that the board voted unanimously on a motion to extend Warren a "2nd year" contract for a two-days-per-week teaching job. That job is similar to the one she held the previous year, her first year of teaching. Minutes from...
