Progressives turn from Obama
to embrace Warren

Washington Post, by Robert Costa

Posted By:Toledo, 7/15/2014 8:36:22 AM

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally here Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state. The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the latest in a string of recent Warren appearances in red and blue states alike, where Democratic base voters have embraced her fiery message as an envoy to working-class voters frustrated with both Wall Street and the Obama administration. “Our job is to fight for the

Natalie Tennant is an empty-headed cliche-toting no-hoper. Warren is welcome to waste her time.

There´s only one clean, black, articulate candidate/president, but we´ve always had a surfeit of desiccated lefty battle-axe white women with voices like icepicks. Warren´s only function is to demonstrate that the Democrat cupboard is B-A-R-E.

Lieawartha will not have the free past Obambi received. She is the ultimate Dem candidate thought. No accomplishments and her rise is directly proportional to her lies about her Indian heritage and quota s she received from those lies. Her uber liberal stance on a variety of issues will make her candidacy dicey for Dems in anything but fascist/socialist states. But she is the best the Dems have to offer and hopefully the Dem base will get her nominated.

Progressives are natural born liars, and they love politicians who can throw out the outrageous lie and somehow get away with it. Meaning it will be a tough choice in 2016 between Hillary and this Warren fraud.

Let´s correct that headline. ´Progressive media turns from Obama to embrace warren.´ That´s better. Warren may be known to Washington insiders, but in flyover country no one has heard of her or cares about her. We don´t need another empty-headed left wingnut in the white house especially one with no past or a past filled with lies.

Fauxcahontas ... Lieawatha ... Sacaga-no-wea ... this woman with the invisible high cheekbones is not only an affirmative action hire--she is a phony one who nonetheless managed to lie her way onto the Harvard Law faculty, and they´re too guild-riden to admit that she isn´t an American Indian and wash their hands of her. She might have bamboozled a majority of midnight blue Massachusetts voters--that´s really tough to do, isn´t it?--but I doubt a left fringe character like her would get far nationwide, especially after all the damage Obama has done.

Don´t underestimate the damage this woman can do. She can tap into the disgust with crony capitalism and anger at DC. The same disgust Tea Partiers feel, only her solutions make things worse. The populist bs she spouts will find a bigger audience than some realize.

As was the case with the Klintoons and with Stinky - - for the life of me I can´t see what the appeal of this fake squaw is.

I try to get myself into the minds of the lo-fo voters - - of the hard-bitten, bitter divorcees - - of the ever-indignant "minorities" - - of the delusional leftist dreamers - -

With all apologies to Longfellow:
By the shore of Gitchie Gumee,
Queen of failing Massachusetts,
At the doorway of her wigwam,
In the pleasant Summer morning,
Lieawatha stood and waited.
All the air was full of envy,
Greey for redistribution,
And before her through the sunshine,
Eyeing profits of their neighbors´
Unrelenting, ceaseless labors,
Massed in golden swarms, the TAKERS,
Passed the toiling money-makers,
Burning torches in the moonlight.
Bright above them shone the heavens,
Horrified at communism,
Weeping over the destruction
Of a once-proud sovereign nation.
On its margin the great forest
Hides the masses of illegals,
Lured by promises of riches,
Stolen from the hands of others.
In the mind of Lieawatha
Thoughts of silencing opponents ,
Dreams of worshipping Alinsky.
The "wife" of conquest of Lewinsky,
Evil smile of joy and triumph,
With a look of exultation,
As of one who in a vision
Sees what is to be, and cackled,
Backed and and funded Lieawatha.

You´re a United States senator from a state struggling to compete in the world economy. Your daughter runs a giant drug company with roots in your state, and the firm makes a fortune from taxpayers via Medicare and Medicaid. Everything´s cozy and connected and perfectly Washington – until your daughter renounces the firm´s U.S. citizenship to reduce its U.S. taxes. What do you do? If you´re Joe Manchin, you duck a reporter´s telephone call for six days, then emerge for an interview in which you vow to make your daughter´s actions, from this day forward, illegal. Sort of.

With Albany rocked by a seemingly endless barrage of scandals and arrests, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo set up a high-powered commission last summer to root out corruption in state politics. It was barely two months old when its investigators, hunting for violations of campaign-finance laws, issued a subpoena to a media-buying firm that had placed millions of dollars’ worth of advertisements for the New York State Democratic Party. The investigators did not realize that the firm, Buying Time, also counted Mr. Cuomo among its clients, having bought the airtime for his campaign when he ran for governor in 2010. Word that the

When Adolph S. Ochs purchased The New York Times in 1896 he pledged “intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion.” He bolstered his commitment with a new motto for the newspaper, promising: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” But Ochs was also determined that the Times would never appear to be a “Jewish newspaper.” His pledges have competed for ascendancy ever since. Arthur Hays Sulzberger, who succeeded his father-in-law as publisher in 1935, feared that Zionism would “exacerbate doubts about every Jew’s ultimate loyalty.” Editors were instructed not to refer to “the Jewish people” but to “the Jewish faith.” There

President Barack Obama must have missed his calling as head of the National Transportation Safety Board. In the wake of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Obama has been the nation’s forensic-investigator-in-chief. He has summoned all the moral authority of his office to call for the professional handling of the wreckage. President Ronald Reagan famously implored the Soviets to “tear down this wall.” President Obama’s injunction is, “Investigate this crash.” Or as he put it rousingly in his statement on Ukraine from the South Lawn Monday, “I’ve sent teams; other countries have sent teams.” If transportation-disaster assistance specialists strike fear

TEL AVIV — Even as Israel and Hamas agreed to suspend hostilities briefly on Thursday at the request of the United Nations, a senior Israeli military official said that his government was increasingly likely to order a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip that it had hoped to avoid. Though Israel initially set limited goals of halting the rocket assaults against it and degrading Hamas, the Islamist movement that dominates Gaza, the group’s tenacity and surprisingly deep arsenal have led to widespread calls to expand the mission. The military official said only “boots on the ground” could eradicate terrorism from Gaza

The White House pushed back against a Republican subpoena for a top presidential adviser to testify this week, saying that summoning David Simas to Capitol Hill raised significant concerns about separation of powers. White House counsel W.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Nadine Gordimer, the South African writer whose literary ambitions led her into the heart of apartheid to create a body of fiction that brought her a Nobel Prize in 1991, died on Sunday in Johannesburg. She was 90. Her family announced her death in a statement. Ms. Gordimer did not originally choose apartheid as her subject as a young writer, she said, but she found it impossible to dig deeply into South African life without striking repression. And once the Afrikaner nationalists came to power in 1948, the scaffolds of the apartheid system began to rise around her and could not be

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives. The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home. Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days. But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in
