The Hillary Purge and the Coming Biden-Warren Ticket

A Washington Times columnist not only fills out details in the Obama Administrations war on the Clinton Democrats, but also predicts a Biden-Warren ticket. In July, I followed up on a couple of posts by Mark Horne and wrote about how Valerie Jarrett may be the principal actor behind Hillary Clinton’s growing email-server legal problem. Now, Washington Times columnist Monica Crowley puts it all together in one narrative. Each week, there are damaging new leaks about her personal email and server: Read more […]

Flipping Houses Shows Elizabeth Warren is a Hypocrite

Elizabeth Warren has condemned house-flipping and profiting from foreclosures; but she built wealth by doing it. As you will know if you read this blog the other day, I pretty much despise the National Review as a pseudo-conservative traitor rag. But I can’t deny this story about Elizabeth Warren’s house-flipping career in the nineties is quite fun to read: “Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes to Make a Quick Profit.” There is nothing intrinsically wrong with what Elizabeth Warren Read more […]

Could America Withstand Another Morally Rudderless President?

The Democratic Party these days seems to just be tossing things at the wall to see if they stick as it works out its 2016 presidential strategy. The party doesn’t seem to have a plan as its previous plan of “let Hillary crown herself queen” falls apart. Between revelations of possibly helping Vladimir Putin gain control of America’s uranium production, disclosure of her foundation’s non-disclosure of foreign donations, stories about her brittle personality, and whatever else can be dragged Read more […]

Elizabeth Warren Sides with the Banks Again

Has Elizabeth Warren ever really found a bank she doesn’t love? I know she talks loudly against the banks, but so far she has had two real opportunities to oppose a bank and make it accountable. These were not “private” banks (if there is such a thing) but rather government or quasi-government entities. First, despite a liberal-conservative alliance opposed to the Export Import Bank, because it is a corrupt subsidy of businesses at taxpayer expense, Warren came out in defense of Read more […]

Democrats Implode, Turning on One Another

Watching Democrats implode is more entertaining than watching Republicans win. Before the election results began coming in, the Democrats were already blaming one another for losing the election! As the Washington Times reports, “Obama to Democratic hopefuls: It’s your fault if you lose.” The Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a rising force on the left and the biggest champion of Mrs. Warren and other populist liberals, took direct aim at Mr. Obama while pushing wholesale changes Read more […]

Elizabeth Warren, Hypocrite and Crony Capitalist

The Elizabeth Warren attack on Barack Obama for protecting the finance industry is a con job. Yes, Barack Obama was bought and paid for by Goldman Sachs and the rest of the finance industry, so her criticisms are true enough in that area. But she is claiming that the Democrats aren’t really like that and that the Republicans are worse. Thus, the Daily Caller reports: Obama’s economic team “protected Wall Street,” Sen. Warren told Salon. “Not families who were losing their homes. Read more […]

Elizabeth Warren Comes Out in Favor of Wall Street Loot

The U.S. government’s Export-Import bank is being condemned both by liberals and by conservatives right now. You would think with liberal critics like Ralph Nader and others, Elizabeth Warren would be leading the charge. But no. Far from condemning the mechanism for giving public subsidies to businesses, Elizabeth Warren says it is a great idea. Bloomberg reports: The Tea Party-aligned group sent a letter today to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat known for taking populist stands Read more […]

The Rigged Game & Elizabeth Warren’s Temptation—With Larry Summers as Devil

“The game is rigged and the American people know that. They get it right down to their toes.” —Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth Warren and I have very different views about the world, about humanity, and the optimum trajectory and contours for civil government. I believe there’s a place for government, but in a much more limited sense than Ms. Warren. I hold the “messiness of freedom” as a higher value than the alleged “wisdom” of an elite class convinced it knows what is best for people, and Read more […]

Dear Elizabeth Warren, Why Not Let Us Invest In Ourselves?

There was a time some years ago when Elizabeth Warren could make sense for a five-minute stretch. If you ever get a chance to see the documentary “Maxed Out,” I think you can catch her in one of her lucid moments. Since she decided to run for Senator, I think she stopped having such episodes. About the only hope I have for her is that she might run against Hillary, which I think would be entertaining. Now this, as reported in CNS News: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says she plans to introduce Read more […]

Democrat Civil War Between Those Who Can Do Math And Those Who Can’t

According to the Washington Times, some Democrats are insisting that the party should promote more welfare spending and an expansion of Social Security. The Democratic rift over entitlements deepened this week as a top party contender for governor in Pennsylvania came under fire from liberals after a think tank of which she is co-chairwoman criticized economic-populism messages of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio. Liberals demanded that gubernatorial Read more […]

Third-Party Pipe Dreams

I saw a Facebook post that argued that all the presidents on Mount Rushmore were third party guys. This can hardly be true for George Washington who had no party affiliation. Political parties were in their infancy when Thomas Jefferson was elected. It seems a new party was being started every election cycle. Jefferson belonged to the Democratic-Republican Party that he organized along with James Madison in 1791. It stood in opposition to the Federalist Party and dominated American politics from Read more […]
