Class-warrior Warren on video stepping off private plane in Des Moines

February 4, 2020

A video provided to Fox News by a source shows Elizabeth Warren, whose Democratic presidential campaign has made railing against the “rich and powerful” a central theme, stepping off a private jet in Iowa Monday night. The Massachusetts senator was returning to the state after spending Monday in Washington, D.C., for the closing arguments in the impeachment trial of President Trump.

At one point in the video, Warren seems to walk behind a staffer after apparently noticing the camera filming her in Des Moines.

Warren and her competitor for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have both used private planes to go back and forth between the nation’s capital and Iowa during the impeachment trial.

Warren, who funds her trips with campaign cash, tweeted as recently as last Thursday about Trump administration officials using private aviation on the taxpayer’s dime. She specifically referenced former Trump Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who still owes the U.S. government over $300,000 in travel expenses, according to an Inspector General report.

Between June and September, Warren paid over $150,000 to “Advanced Aviation,” a private jet charter service, according to FEC filings. Last week the Washington Examiner reported she had spent over $700,000 total on private aviation.

Warren, Sanders and the rest of the Democratic field still don’t know who won the Iowa caucuses after issues accurately reporting the vote total from the state. The Iowa Democratic Party had said that its backup systems worked even after the app it was using to report vote tallies failed, and that it should be able to release the majority of Monday’s results by 5 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Elizabeth Warren in hypocrisy row after it’s revealed she held $2,700 per head fundraiser at Boston winery – but berated fellow 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg for his ‘wine cave’ fundraiser

Elizabeth Warren in hypocrisy row after it’s revealed she held $2,700 per head fundraiser at Boston winery – but berated fellow 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg for his ‘wine cave’ fundraiser

* Elizabeth Warren held a fundraiser at a winery in Boston in June 2018 – a few months before she announced her candidacy for president

* During the sixth primary debate Thursday night she berated her fellow Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg for his ‘wine cave’ fundraiser

* ‘Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States,’ Warren shot at Buttigieg. ‘I do not sell access to my time’

* Buttigieg also pointed out during the debate that he is the only candidate of the seven on stage who is not a millionaire or billionaire

December 22, 2019

Elizabeth Warren held a swanky fundraiser at a winery in Boston in June 2018, new reports revealed over the weekend, raising questions over her criticism of her fellow Democratic presidential candidate’s fundraiser at a wine cave.

Just a few months before announcing her candidacy for president – and about two years before she called out South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg for his fundraiser – Warren held an event at City Winery Boston that gave the VIP experience to donors who gave $2,700.

‘Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States,’ Warren shot at Buttigieg during the sixth Democratic primary debate on Thursday in a reference to his fundraiser last weekend in Napa Valley, California.

‘Think about who comes to that,’ Warren continued of the ‘wine cave’ fundraiser. ‘We made the decision many years ago that rich people in smoke-filled rooms would not pick the next president of the United States.’

‘I do not sell access to my time,’ she asserted.

The new revelations, however, show that Warren charged just $1,000 less for tickets to her winery fundraiser in 2018 than Buttigieg’s $2,800 tickets a year-and-a-half later.

Warren’s fundraiser featured a performance from singer Melissa Etheridge and offered souvenir wine bottles for $1,000 donors, Fox News reported, while bottles of wine at Buttigieg’s campaign ran as high as $900.

Buttigieg called out Warren during the debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California, claiming – correctly, it now appears – that she wouldn’t be able to pass her own purity test.

‘Your presidential campaign right now as we speak is funded in part by money you transferred having raised it at those exact same big-ticket fundraisers you now denounce,’ Buttigieg shot back. ‘Did it corrupt you, Senator? Of course not,.’

‘According to Forbes magazine, I am … the only person on this stage who’s not a millionaire or a billionaire,’ Buttigieg said of the six other candidates who qualified for the December debate. ‘This is the problem issuing purity tests you yourself cannot pass.’

Before announcing her candidacy in February this year, Warren also held several private meetings with wealthy donors to gauge their level of interest in supporting her run.

Buttigieg noted during their on-stage clash that the progressive Massachusetts senator also solicited funds from wealthy donors during her campaign for her Senate seat.

Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, the only minority candidate on stage Thursday, also took a hit at Buttigieg’s Napa Valley fundraiser claiming presidential hopefuls shouldn’t have to ‘shake the money tree in the wine cave.’

If Buttigieg were to win the Democratic nomination he would become the first openly gay man to run on a major party ticket, and if he won the presidency he would be the first president to take office with student loans – which he and his husband have more than $100,000 in outstanding loans.

Warren’s ‘Billionaire Tears’ Mug Is Sold Through A Billionaire-Run Company

Warren’s ‘Billionaire Tears’ Mug Is Sold Through A Billionaire-Run Company

November 14, 2019

A billionaire stands to benefit financially from the sales of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s new “Billionaire Tears” mug.

The $25 mug, which Warren’s presidential campaign introduced Wednesday, is sold through Shopify, a Canadian e-commerce company whose founder and CEO, Tobias Lütke, is worth an estimated $2.8 billion.

“Savor a warm, slightly salty beverage of your choice in this union-made mug as you contemplate all the good a wealth tax could do: universal healthcare, student debt cancellation, universal free college, and more,” the mug’s product page states.

Warren’s presidential campaign began utilizing Shopify’s services shortly after the Massachusetts senator declared her candidacy in February. Her campaign has disbursed nearly $105,000 to Shopify for credit card processing fees so far in 2019, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.

The Warren campaign did not return a request for comment.

Warren’s senatorial campaign also utilized Shopify’s services, disbursing $16,500 to the company between 2017 and 2019, FEC records show.

Warren’s proposed annual 2% wealth tax on net worth over $50 million and an annual 6% wealth tax on net worth over $1 billion has become a focal point of her campaign. She says the increased tax revenues from the proposal can fund her “Medicare for all” plan without raising taxes on the middle class.

But opponents of Warren’s proposed wealth tax say it’s fundamentally flawed. Of the 12 European countries that had a wealth tax in place in 1990, nine had rescinded the measure by 2019.

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development found that the wealth tax was too expensive to administer, drastically altered investment decisions and drove wealthy citizens out of their homelands, NPR reported.

France’s wealth tax, initiated in 2000, led to an exodus of some 42,000 millionaires from the country in 12 years, according to NPR. French President Emmanuel Macron rescinded the measure in 2018.

According to the Washington Post, lawyer and presidential contender Elizabeth Warren lied on her registration card for the State Bar of Texas

Elizabeth Warren lied on her registration card for the State Bar of Texas.

The Washington Post just reported:

Elizabeth Warren apologizes for calling herself Native American

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she was sorry that she identified herself as a Native American…

… Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.”

Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it. Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.

The same Washington Post article also included this image of her registration card for the State Bar of Texas:

Poll: What do you think of Denmark’s long term welfare policy for able bodied people?

This New York Times article is from six years ago, but I just found out about it.

The article talks about able-bodied people in Denmark who have been on welfare for a very long time.

It says these able bodied adults get more money from welfare than what many full time workers get from their jobs.

Here’s one example from the article:

It began as a stunt intended to prove that hardship and poverty still existed in this small, wealthy country, but it backfired badly. Visit a single mother of two on welfare, a liberal member of Parliament goaded a skeptical political opponent, see for yourself how hard it is.

It turned out, however, that life on welfare was not so hard. The 36-year-old single mother, given the pseudonym “Carina” in the news media, had more money to spend than many of the country’s full-time workers. All told, she was getting about $2,700 a month, and she had been on welfare since she was 16.

Here’s another example from the article:

Robert Nielsen, 45, made headlines last September when he was interviewed on television, admitting that he had basically been on welfare since 2001.

Mr. Nielsen said he was able-bodied but had no intention of taking a demeaning job, like working at a fast-food restaurant. He made do quite well on welfare, he said…

… Mr. Nielsen, called “Lazy Robert” by the news media, seems to be enjoying the attention. He says that he is greeted warmly on the street all the time. “Luckily, I am born and live in Denmark, where the government is willing to support my life,” he said.

So when you hear Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, and other American politicians say they want the U.S. to be like Denmark, please ask yourself if the two people cited above by the New York Times are how you would want your own able bodied children to behave when they grow up.

Elizabeth Warren doesn’t seem to know that France’s wealth tax caused a REDUCTION in tax revenues

This is what the Washington Post wrote about France’s wealth tax:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/15/AR2006071501010.html

Old Money, New Money Flee France and Its Wealth Tax

July 16, 2006

Eric Pinchet, author of a French tax guide, estimates the wealth tax earns the government about $2.6 billion a year but has cost the country more than $125 billion in capital flight since 1998.

Anyone who looks at the above numbers would know that all of that capital flight means less income tax, less capital gains tax, less sales tax, less social security tax, and less of many other taxes too. Whatever tax revenue France gets from its wealth tax is more than dwarfed by the reductions in other taxes.

And Warren’s proposed wealth tax rate is actually higher than France’s, so its potential for harm is actually bigger as well.

That doesn’t sound like a good idea for anyone who wants to increase the amount of tax revenue that gets collected by the government.

On the other hand, if Warren’s real goal is to appeal to Democratic primary voters who feel envy and jealousy, and who don’t understand math or the concept of capital flight, then her proposal is a brilliant strategy. Her horrible proposal could very well get her elected President in 2020.

Apparently, Elizabeth Warren doesn’t think that Mollie Tibbett’s murder by an illegal alien is a “real problem”

When asked about Mollie Tibbett’s murder by an illegal alien, Elizabeth Warren starts out by giving what seems like a very sincere and heartfelt response.

Good for her!

But then she says “but,” and says we need to focus on “real problems.”

Shame on her!

Elizabeth Warren on the Tibbetts murder: Sad she’s dead, but ‘we have to remember’ we need an immigration system that ‘focuses on where real problems are’

August 22, 2018

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is sorry that a 20-year-old Iowa student is dead and that a reported illegal alien has been charged in the killing, but the Massachusetts Democrat wants to stay focused on the “real problems.”

This isn’t a paraphrase of something she said Wednesday on CNN. This is her actual response to a question about reports that law enforcement agents have charged Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, in the disappearance and murder of Mollie Tibbetts.

“I’m so sorry for the family here, and I know this is hard, not only for the family, but for the people in her community, the people throughout Iowa,” Warren told CNN’s John Berman. “But one of the things we have to remember is: We need an immigration system that is effective. That focuses on where real problems are.”

Berman asking the senator specifically to respond to President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence claiming the Tibbetts murder is proof of the need for stronger immigration enforcement.

Warren continued, saying, “Uh, last month, I went down to the border, and I saw where children had been taken away from their mothers. I met with those mothers, who had been lied to, who didn’t know where their children were, who hadn’t had a chance to talk to their children. And there was no plan for how they’d be reunified with their children.”

Tibbetts’ remains were found early Tuesday morning, according to law enforcement officials. Rivera, who authorities believe has been living in the U.S. illegally for four to seven years, has been charged with first-degree murder. His bail was set Tuesday at $1 million.

“I think we need immigration laws that focus on people who pose a real threat, and I don’t think mammas and babies are the place where we should be spending our resources. Separating a mamma from a baby does not make this country safe,” Warren said.

Trump signed an executive order on June 20 reversing the policy of separating illegal immigrant families. And as to the issue of mothers being separated from their babies, I think Tibbetts’ mother, Laura Calderwood, might have some thoughts on that.

The Washington Examiner’s Phil Klein disagreed Wednesday with the criticisms of Warren, arguing the Massachusetts senator had not really stepped in it with “outrageously tone-deaf” comment.

“I’m no Warren fan, but this strikes me as a stretch. In clip she goes on to say we need to focus on actual threats, and that family separation doesn’t make us safe,” he wrote. “She isn’t saying that a young girl getting killed isn’t a problem.”

I disagree that the negative reaction is a stretch. The criticisms are well-deserved. Her comments follow a clear path. She starts by saying she’s sorry about the Tibbetts murder, and then changes the subject to attack Trump over an immigration policy he rescinded two months ago.

It’s true Warren’s remarks were about the White House’s response to the murder. That doesn’t take away from the “but” in her “I’m sorry someone is dead” response. There should never be a “but” in those statements.

Liberal and progressive hero Elizabeth Warren signs letter in support of trickle down economics

On November 8, 2012, it was reported that in response to the medical device tax that is part of Obamacare, some medical device manufacturers had announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

On December 4, 2012, Elizabeth Warren joined Al Franken, John Kerry, and 15 other Democratic U.S. Senators in signing a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts. The letter can be read here.

I think it’s great that Warren has come out in favor of trickle down economics, and I am glad that several of her Democratic colleagues have also embraced the position.

Unfortunately, the medical device tax is still in existence, and continues to wreak havoc. On February 18, 2014, it was reported that the medical device tax had destroyed 14,000 jobs, and had prevented an additional 19,000 new jobs from being created.

Obama administration falsely says “there is absolutely no evidence” of any job loss related to Obamacare

The New York Times recently reported:

The Obama administration says “there is absolutely no evidence” of any job loss related to the Affordable Care Act.

Obama is lying.

In November 2012, in response to the Obamacare’s medical device tax, some medical device manufacturers announced plans to layoff employees, including Welch Allyn (275 planned layoffs), Stryker (1,170 planned layoffs), and Medtronic (1,000 planned layoffs).

In December 2012, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democratic hypocrites who supported the passage of Obamacare wrote a letter to Harry Reid, asking him to delay the tax on medical devices, claiming that the tax would hurt job creation in their districts.

But now Obama is claiming that those layoffs never happened.

Note that Franken, Warren, Kerry, and those other hypocrite Democrats aren’t worried about job losses for the country in general. Instead, their only concern is the job losses in their own districts. Meanwhile, conservatives and libertarians are worried about Obamacare causing job losses in the entire country. This is why conservatives and libertarians want Obamacare to be repealed, whereas those Democrats support Obamacare, but want waivers for their own special interests. What hypocrites.

Among those who signed that letter, Elizabeth Warren especially deserves to be called out, because liberals have been saying that she is different than other politicians, that she doesn’t cater to corporations – and yet here she is, trying to get a special exemption for those very same corporations. In reality, it seems that Warren is just as much of a corporate stooge as any other politician.

Obama knows what whatever you tax, you get less of, which is precisely why he raised the cigarette tax in 2009. So surely, he knew that creating a medical device tax would destroy jobs in the medical device industry. And yet he falsely claims that no jobs were lost.

I’m not surprised that Obama made this false claim about there being no job losses due to Obamacare – the list of Obama’s lies keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, John Kerry, and 15 other Democratic hypocrites ask for delay in Obamacare tax that they themselves voted for!

Two and a half years after voting for Obamacare, 18 Democrats have written this letter in which they ask for a delay in one of the Obamacare taxes.

What a bunch of hypocrites!
