Democrat Elizabeth Warren has framed her race in Massachusetts against Sen. Scott Brown around integrity and intellect, as if she's a cut above other pols. In fact, she's beneath even the sleaziest. On top of fraudulently claiming minority Indian status without any documented ancestry, the Harvard law professor has now been busted practicing law in Massachusetts without a state license. Worse, her client list includes the type of corporations that Ms. Populist has demonized on the campaign trail as greedy polluters and exploiters of the "little guy." Turns out working-class champion Warren in 1995 hired herself out as a legal gun
Warren is an inherently corrupt and dishonest person along with being a super hypocrite. In a sane,moral world,these things matter but when your banner is big government intervention and redistribution,all those things are magically erased.I guess you can't disbar someone who doesn't have a law license to begin with.
Am I the only person who is tired of frauds in the U.S. Government?
The "natural born" clause in the U.S. Constitution should be re-inforced with some mechanism whereby a candidate must prove, beyond a shadow of doubt, who they are and that they are qualified to fill an office.
Oh, you say there is a mechanism? It's called vetting, you say? Ok, so now we have to vett the vetters? And we wonder why our country is going to "hell in a handbasket"?
BUT .... it's too late to replace this amazingly corrupt Harvard professor in her campaign for the U.S. Senate. So, even though she lied about being a minority to secure a spot at Harvard and she lied about being licensed to practice law, she still DEFINES the word Democrat. ... This is who they are. Catch her if you can.
Pinocchahontas is a fitting moniker for this evil, dishonest, lying piece of human debris, but Fauxcchahontas is still my favorite. In the future, when gauging just how badly someone is lying instead of assigning the statement a given number of Pinocchios, it should be given an equal number of Warrens instead!!!
Practicing law without a license is a felony, I believe. I am shocked that the Harvard Law School faculty, most of whom are licensed to practice law, don't file charges against her, and demand her termination. (Tenure does not protect a professor from moral turpitude charges.)
Our gracious site hostess notes, "First she's not an Indian. Now she's not a lawyer."
What next? She shouldn't be using the Ladies' Room?
#3: The states' Secretaries of State determine who is qualified to be on the ballot. Apparently, none of them stood up in 2008, and the Dems went after these offices hard in 2010. I don't know the R-D count.
#10: Ah, but they all see themselves as being in service to the Highest Calling -- "leading the [poor, dumb, unable to live without the hand-holding of their 'betters'] 'less fortunate' to the Utopia only 'Progressives' can find" [read -- more power in the hands of the Left ]. "Progressives" would all be running around with copies of Bastiat and wearing Adam Smith t-shirts if they thought free markets would put more power in their hands. One. Thing. Matters. Power. Power in their hands.
The most disturbing aspect of the Warren revelations is that there are still about 50% of the electorate that will nevertheless going to vote for her. They just don't care. And it's the same with Obama.
What this means is that this country is now about evenly divided between the law-abiding and the lawless. Laws, truth, values mean something for one group, but absolutely nothing for the other.
It's Zombie time in America. And what happens when there are more of them than there are of us?
According to a Massachusetts poll published last Sunday, Brown is running 57-35 ahead of Warren with independents. I hope this is true, because there are more registered independents in Mass. than Democrats.
She just got the endorsement of the Mass. Firefighters Assoc., which is disappointing but predictable, I guess.
Her most ardent supporters, who self-identify as socialists, simply don't care what she says or does, or how hypocritical she is. It's her agenda they love.
The best is that obama 'stole' her ideas about "you didn't build that". One liar to another and yet the press and the left love her. Do you really think these sheep will look up and realize that they are jumping off the cliff behind the 'popular' folks ?
Another Havard professor who ran for high office didn't do particularly well in a recent election. Michael Ignatieff (sp?) returned to Canada, was elected leader of the Liberal party and ran in the last general election. Got absolutely trounced, now back at Havard. Completely out of touch with the Canadian electorate...
What is shocking about all this is the Dems have found someone that has better presidential qualification and are more impressive than Obambi's. We thought his lies and faux achievements were something. There nothing compared to Lieawatha's.
Elite educational snobs (need I say they're Dems?) can't handle the fact that she's the least qualified faculty member at Harvard Law. They know it supports the argument that she benefited from her diversity claim.
I asked my father, an attorney who has practiced in a number of states and who is no fan of this administration, Elizabeth Warren, etc. This is no big deal - these licensing arrangements are state-by-state and it isn't unusual for exemptions to be made for law professors who occasionally charge for their services but who are primarily engaged as professors. He thinks this is no big deal. I was disappointed, too.
She is NOT a complete fraud. She is a complete Democrat. She exemplifies what Democrats stand for: lie, cheat, steal, repeat. Of course she used a false claim to get her Harvard job. Of course she practiced law without a license--laws are for little people. Of course she published a plagarized recipe in a false Indian cookbook. Of course she phonied up some data to write a book.
An old quote from "Millenium": "This is who we are. This is what we do."
So the citizens of MA will vote for Liz: where else in the world can you get elected Mayor of Boston while dead?
#39, I'm pretty sure that why neither Brown nor the conservative press have jumped on the licensing issue and run with it. Warren was "of counsel" in federal court. If she had a New Jersey or Texas license at the time she was involved in those cases, then she's in the clear on that matter. Howie Carr's column yesterday was about...stolen yard signs. You can be sure it would have been about Warren's illegal practice if that were the case.
There's plenty of other ammunition to use against her. It's vitally important that Brown win this race.
Elizabeth Warren is a typical liberal. Never present the truth. I would disagree with this post when he refers to the senate as "august body." According to the dictionary,"august" is "marked by majestic dignity or grandeur." Sorry, the little runt from Nevada has taken the "body" down the drain.
When the constitution is not followed and illegal things like affirmative action are permitted, the whole honest hard working community gets the shaft. In this country it should not matter who their parents were, it’s their actions and character that the Constitution was written to protect. Open the door to illegal actions you have to expect it to cause even more illegal actions.
Well, I was going to ask if there was a barratry law in Mass., but maybe #39 has answered that question. Still, you would think a hifalutin law firm would be pretty embarrassed to have an unlicensed professor listed as "of counsel" with them.
Mrs Warren typifies what she is. A carpetbagger, unqualified, prevaricator, cheat and arrogant. She is so untrustworthy that even the democrat controlled senate would not confirm her, so they decided to buy her "Teddy's seat" Very appropriate, he was expelled from Harvard for cheating and daddy had to buy his way back in, and she had to lie and cheat to get in.
She's as crazed a liar as is 0bama. And if 0bama's school records and other details of his past were fully exposed to the general public as we have seen them 0bama would behave in much the same fashion.
At last week's debate Squaw Warren explained that her momma told her at age 7 that she was an Indian. I expect at next week's debate we will learn that at age 8 her daddy told her she was a lawyer! -- case closed for the morons, moonbats, and cynics who vote Dem in MA.
How does this affect the outcomes from all the law clients she represented in court at Harvard? Is this not grounds for verdict reversal? I can only imagine the lawsuits that will be filed as a result of this. She should drop out quietly and hope there's no door knock for an arrest. This is unconscionable.
I am absolutely sure that with the resources lefties have, they do very thorough vetting of their candidates. I am serious about that: they vet the people who will carry leftist radical torch no matter what - lies, backstabbing, coercion, blackmail, etc. The rest doesn't matter to them. It didn't matter for fascists/commies and our radicals are using exactly this strategy/tactics!
The Party of Envy, whatever name it uses in a given nation or era, will individually rob you on the street or in your home. When given the chance, they will assert a religious right to rob you, because that's "what Jesus would do." In the political realm, they will vote for any liar, cheat or murderer, as long as he (or she, in this case) shares the ill-gotten gains with the "oppressed."
On a jury, these same people will vote for huge awards against any "deep pocket" defendant, and will vote "innocent" if any of the "oppressed classes" is the accused.
This is a culture war, and the future of civilization is at stake.
In a small MA colonial town where we live neigbors are great and always helpul if we need assistance.We don't litter the place with political signs, Exception must be avid Democrats they have signs for the local Representative and Warren. Feel like running over them but this is the USA and we all can vote for whom we want.
Poster #6, I've got an idea on how to stop the theft of those signs. It involves anchoring the signs so they are difficult to pull up and using honed-edged items along the base of the plastic board. It would only have to happen once and that would be the end of sign stealing for the whole state.
The Texas Republican Party is reopening the filing period for Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) congressional district after his last-second decision to run instead against Sen. John Cornyn (R). Stockman filed for Cornyn´s seat rather than reelection just minutes before the state´s legal filing deadline Monday night, giving aspiring politicians in the district no heads up that he was doing so. The party´s move gives candidates an additional week, with the new filing deadline set for next Monday. Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell said the party was reopening the filing because it´s required by Texas´s election code. Stockman is facing a steep uphill
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website. The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.” “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads. “Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues. Hill workers had
The Obama administration expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a Las Vegas casino hotel after pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, the Washington Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing internal government documents, said the decision to overturn a prior, normally non-appealable visa decision ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have been heavy Democratic donors. The paper said it also came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some Asian applicants. Reid, who represents Nevada, personally reached out to the top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, setting in motion a process that
California’s budding doctor rebellion against Obamacare appears to be genuinely spontaneous, lacking leadership from a single individual or organization. As the Washington Examiner has reported in recent days, an estimated 70 percent of California´s physicians -- ranging from general practitioners to specialists -- are "just saying no" to Obamacare´s Covered California health insurance exchange. Although it appears leaderless, some observers believe that very spontaneity may make the doctor rebellion a formidable force in California’s health-care future. “Doctors are realizing what is happening and spontaneously they are acting like this. There’s a movement growing,” said Sally Pipes, president of the San Francisco-based
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
