The Fairy Tale Life of Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee

*

Massachusetts U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has said and done a lot of things this political season that her progressive fans have dismissed – or even defended – that, had she been a Republican candidate, these same progressives would have screamed bloody murder about and demanded a retraction, an apology, or even a resignation from her position as a law professor at Harvard University.

Yet, to this very day, the progressive movement remains steadfast in its support for Warren’s lying, hypocritical ways.

Let’s review a few of them, shall we?

  • THE BOSTON GLOBE QUESTIONS WARREN’S HONESTY
    From the Boston Globe (May, 2012):

    […] for at least six straight years during Warren’s tenure, Harvard University reported in federally mandated diversity statistics that it had a Native American woman in its senior ranks at the law school. According to both Harvard officials and federal guidelines, those statistics are almost always based on the way employees describe themselves.

    In addition, both Harvard’s guidelines and federal regulations for the statistics lay out a specific definition of Native American that Warren does not meet.

    The documents suggest for the first time that either Warren or a Harvard administrator classified her repeatedly as Native American in papers prepared for the government in a way that apparently did not adhere to federal diversity guidelines. They raise further questions about Warren’s statements that she was unaware Harvard was promoting her as Native American.

    The Warren campaign declined Thursday to answer the Globe’s specific questions about the documents.

  • WARREN’S CONTINUED, UNFOUNDED CLAIM OF NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE
    “This goes right to the integrity and character of a person. When you check that box (that claims Native American heritage), you’re getting benefits from people who have historically been discriminated against.” – U.S. Senator Scott Brown, on Elizabeth Warren’s unsubstantiated claims of Native American ancestry.

    My mom and dad have told me a lot of things too, but they’re not always accurate.” – Brown, in response to Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she knew she had Native American ancestry “Because my mother told me so.”

    “Scott Brown’s comments about my parents are totally out of line. I resent him questioning their honesty.” – Warren’s response in a statement demanding that Brown apologize for insinuating her parents may have uttered an inaccurate word to her.

  • WARREN REFUSES TO MEET WITH INDIAN LEADERS TO EXPLAIN HERITAGE CLAIMS
    During the Democratic National Convention, Warren again refused to meet with Native Americans to talk about her claims of Cherokee heritage. From the Boston Herald:

    “Questions surrounding Warren’s American Indian heritage re-emerged after many members of a council of Democratic Native Americans — including the great-grandson of Geronimo — were outraged that Warren listed herself as a minority in a law school directory without any proof.

    Warren ignored a follow-up question about whether she was refusing to meet with the group, who are loyal Democrats and come from across the country. She has continued to claim that her Cherokee roots are a part of her life due to stories her family told her.”

  • THAT’S NEWS TO THEM
    I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do.” –Warren referring to her support of the Occupy Wall Street movement, in an interview with the Daily Beast in October, 2011.

    According to Wikipedia, the Occupy Wall Street movement was created by Canadian activist group Adbusters as part of a global protest movement. The New York protest was then lead for time by anarchist David Graeber, who organized local “general assembly” meetings and is said to have coined the term “We are the 99%.” In September of 2011, Graeber claimed in a Guardian column that Occupy Wall Street and other ongoing economic protests represented ‘the opening salvo in a wave of negotiations over the dissolution of the American Empire’.”

    Not exactly a goal a candidate for the U.S. Senate should be backing as part of her campaign platform.

  • WHERE’S THE CHECK-BOX FOR THIS?
    I was the first nursing mother to take a bar exam in the state of New Jersey,” Warren told an audience at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2011, in a video posted on the CHF website. When asked how Warren knows that, her campaign said: “Elizabeth was making a point about the very serious challenges she faced as a working mom — from taking an all-day bar exam when she was still breast-feeding, to finding work as a lawyer that would accommodate a mom with two small children.”

    Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked. – May, 2012 Boston Herald story on yet another one of U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claims of greatness.

  • Boston Globe report on Elizabeth Warren’s demand that Scott Brown release more tax return info:

    Elizabeth Warren backs off demand that Scott Brown release more tax returns
    08/07/2012 2:04 PM

    Elizabeth Warren demanded Monday that Senator Scott Brown release more of his tax returns. The only problem was that Brown, her Republican rival, had already released six years of tax returns while Warren has refused to release more than four years of her filings.

    Asked to reconcile that apparent conflict, Warren backed off her demand, saying today that six years was enough. She did not, however, offer to release any more of her IRS filings.

  • WARREN SKIPS FUNERAL OF FALLEN POLICE OFFICER
    Warren has shown a pattern of wanting to remain in a political “comfort zone” by only attending events and making appearances where her audience is sure to be friendly and adoring of her. Of course, that may be nothing unusual for an up-and-coming politician. What is noticeable, though, is the lengths to which Warren will go to avoid a neutral stage. The candidate had a perfect opportunity to show her human side and appeal to a wider audience by attending the funeral of fallen Springfield police officer Kevin Ambrose. Her opponent, incumbent Senator Scott Brown, and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick both made it a point to be there themselves. Warren skipped the Ambrose funeral, however, in order to attend a fringe progressive online media gathering that was being held that same week in nearby Rhode Island. For that multi-day conference, she could have easily rescheduled her appearance to a different day or time – she was their star attraction, after all, and organizers no doubt would have accommodated her. Instead, though, she never felt the remotest need to do any such thing. ‘Why give up center stage in order to share one with others?’ was perhaps her mindset.

  • ON COLLEGE STUDENTS “DROWNING IN DEBT”
    One of Warren’s campaign talking points is to attack “big corporations” that she says are responsible for high college tuition costs that leave kids “drowning in debt” as a result.

    Left unsaid in her criticism is the exceedingly high salary rates that professors have demanded – and received – in the state’s many colleges and universities. Warren herself makes around $400,000 a year for teaching a single class at Harvard University. This is in addition to the tens of thousands she has earned being paid as a consultant on various panels the past couple of years.

  • ONLINE COMMENTS ON WARREN:
    WickedSmaaht
    LIZZY, how is it that you teach one course at Harvard for a salary in excess of $415,000.00 and you then run ads and cry that education costs and loans are out of reach and strangling young college students financially????? LOOK IN THE MIRROR LIZ! YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!! That alone is more than enough reason to never support you!!!!
    Elizabeth Warren is the poster child of hypocrisy!!!!!!!

    gammawhip
    “The game is rigged!” said the person who rigged the game by lying about her ancestry to use the affirmative action system in order to advance her career. Of course, she was just following our dear President.

    bottlepark
    This woman is truly loathsome. She bemoans the high cost of education yet pockets $350,000 a year to teach one class. She supports affirmative action yet circumvents it by passing herself off as a fake Native American. She complains about large corporations yet pockets $40,000 as a consultant for Travelers Insurance. She rails against foreclosures yet made a fortune flipping houses. I can’t imagine a more hypocritical pick than this self-appointed “champion of the middle class”.

On November 6th, hundreds of thousands of loyal progressives will be obediently casting their ballot for their hero, Elizabeth Warren, self-proclaimed Cherokee woman, despite her many failings. They could care less about her outright lies, her class-baiting, nor the fabulously rich life she leads while condemning others who live likewise.

The only hope Massachusetts has is that hundreds of thousands of not-so-gullible people will also show up at the polls, making Warren’s place on the political stage just a pitiful memory after that.

  1. Some of the data from thursday….17% in Springfield who cast dem. ballots choose not fill in Warren . They left it blank…Ludlow was at 29%… many at 22%-25% blank(towns east and west)…. many wrote in Brown… I see a trend. It may be that there are astute voters even in the democrat party

  3. Scott Brown will win by 4-5 points just for honesty alone. I try to understand progressives but not voting to help your state and to only care about all national issues is so scary. Do they not investigate or just not think for themselves?
