Elizabeth Warren

Fauxcahontas is faux angry

Featured image The video below has been disseminated by Senator Elizabeth Warren herself. It is not a clip edited to portray her in an unflattering light. She is proud of it. She was outside the Supreme Court to express her anger over the draft Alito opinion. She wants her audience to believe that the draft Alito opinion, if the opinion of the Court, would outlaw abortion. She wants you to believe she »

Big Grocery? Seriously?

Featured image I’m not saying that Elizabeth Warren is the dumbest person in public life–there is a lot of competition for that title–but let’s just say she is having the worst week. First she accused Elon Musk of being a tax freeloader, just before he disclosed that he will pay $11 billion in taxes this year, more than any American in history, to Warren’s slush fund the federal government. Next she blamed »

Elon Musk for the Win

Featured image So Elon Musk is Time‘s “Person of the Year.” I’ve actually been warming up to Musk for a long time now. If you take away the lavish subsidies he got for his cars, what would be your complaint with him? That electric cars won’t save the world? True, but slow down for a moment and note that unlike nearly everyone else in Silicon Valley, he’s actually trying to build a »

Talking back to Sen. Warren

Featured image Lyin’ Lizzie Warren sent out a set of letters berating major U.S. oil and gas producers for restraining production, increasing exports and “putting their massive profits, share prices and dividends for investors, and millions of dollars in CEO pay and bonuses” ahead of Americans. According to Warren, “These record-setting natural gas exports are leading to higher prices for consumers, and they show no signs of a slowdown.” I am quoting »

Elizabeth Warren gets the Middle East backwards

Featured image Yesterday, Elizabeth Warren tweeted: This ceasefire is good news, but it won’t bring back the hundreds of innocent civilians killed or prevent future violence. The Biden administration must press for a just, lasting two-state agreement, and that starts with taking all appropriate steps to end the occupation. Warren has it backwards. It was Israel’s decision to stop occupying Gaza that led to the deaths of “innocent civilians” there. If Israel »

When great skin is not enough

Featured image The Washington Post has a section called “Style.” I call it the paper’s id. Left-wing memes and rants too out there to appear in the news section or the op-eds find voice in the Style section. This article by Monica Hesse about Elizabeth Warren is a good example. Here’s how it opens: One of the more intimate side conversations you were likely to overhear between women at an Elizabeth Warren »

Whom should Warren endorse, if anyone?

Featured image Earlier this week, Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race. Unlike other recent dropouts — Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Michael Bloomberg — Warren hasn’t endorsed anyone for president yet. Ideologically, Warren is more closely aligned with Bernie Sanders than with Joe Biden. However, it makes little sense for her to endorse Sanders. For one thing, Sanders looks like a loser now. A good showing in Michigan would change »

Did Warren’s campaign fail because of her gender?

Featured image The Democratic presidential race has had as many twists and turns as a Formula 1 race track. However, as we head for the finish line, the race has taken the shape many predicted it would before it began. A former vice president and favorite of the establishment wing is competing with the runner-up in the 2016 campaign and favorite of the radical wing. Flavor du jour candidates have had their »

Why did MSNBC sack Chris Matthews?

Featured image Earlier this week, Chris Matthews announced on his MSNBC show “Hardball” that he was quitting. He then walked off the set. Later, we learned that the network forced him to resign. Why? One explanation is that Matthews made female guests on his show and some female employees “uncomfortable” with sex-charged banter. But reportedly, Matthews has been doing this forever. It’s true that an obscure journalist recently called Matthews out for »

Bloomberg is out, why is Warren still in?

Featured image Mike Bloomberg suspended his presidential campaign today. He has endorsed Joe Biden. The lesson many will draw from Bloomberg’s failure to win any primary other than the one in American Samoa is that it’s foolish to skip the early contests. To be sure, skipping the early contests isn’t generally a recommended strategy, but I don’t think it was foolish in Bloomberg’s case. His downfall was his debate performance, not his »

About face: Elizabeth Warren accepts super PAC money, after all

Featured image Raise your hand if you have seen a still photograph of Elizabeth Warren in the last Democratic debate where she isn’t either talking or raising her hand in the hope of talking. In that debate, Warren managed to play two roles one might have considered mutually exclusive — the insufferable teacher and the insufferable student. But this post isn’t about Warren’s insufferability. It’s about her hypocrisy. In nearly every debate »

Warren goes full weasel after campaign is accused of racism

Featured image Six African-American staffers from Elizabeth Warren’s Nevada campaign have resigned. They accused the campaign of “tokenism” and racial insensitivity, and claimed that their work environment was “toxic.” There are two possibilities here. The first is that the allegations are true. Warren wouldn’t be the first liberal to treat African-Americans as tokens or, indeed, affirmatively to mistreat them. And even if Warren herself doesn’t discriminate against African-American staff members, it’s certainly »

Warren ducks cameras as she gets off private jet

Featured image It’s a ritual. After the Iowa caucuses, those with a “ticket out,” and those who just want to prolong the agony, fly to New Hampshire to campaign. Elizabeth Warren, who has half a ticket out, followed this practice. She did so by private jet. Nothing wrong with that. There are probably few, if any, direct commercial flights from anywhere in Iowa to anywhere in New Hampshire. Anyway, after an exhausting »

Elizabeth Warren’s question

Featured image Former Harvard Law School Professor Elizabeth Warren posed a grandstanding question attacking Chief Justice Roberts and the Supreme Court in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump yesterday. Warren was shrieking for attention. Why might that be? It is a little difficult to follow the logic of the question. The patent stupidity of the question should embarrass her and her target audience. Chief Justice Roberts was visibly chagrined by the »

Liz Warren Finally Has a Good Idea

Featured image Elizabeth Warren wants to jail fellow Democrats who spread the Russia collusion hoax and, more recently, the Ukraine impeachment fraud. That, at least, is how I read her latest proposal: “Elizabeth Warren proposes criminal penalties for spreading voting disinformation online.” Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday released a plan to fight disinformation and to hold tech companies accountable for their actions in light of the 2016 election. *** »

Long division, DMR style

Featured image In a beautiful case of just in time manufacturing, the Des Moines Register has arrived with its endorsement of the candidate to lead Democrats to victory over Trump in November. Clue: Bernie Sanders hardest hit. One more clue: the Register editorial board found that each of the Democratic candidates would “treat truth as something that matters.” Elizabeth Warren, it had to be you. Warren would probably be one of the »

Warren responds

Featured image Senator Warren didn’t do too well in the moment she was challenged by the Iowa voter about the injustice of her tuition loan forgiveness scheme. The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle picks up Warren’s subsequent response in “CBS Anchor to Warren: Are You Saying ‘Tough Luck’ to People Who Saved for College?” “For Americans who are in that father’s position, who felt they did the right thing and you’re bailing »
