The Expert Efficiency of Elizabeth
Warren’s Populist Campaign

The New Yorker, by Benjamin Wallace-Wells

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 1/11/2019 12:13:01 PM

Six months ago, with the 2020 Presidential race barely within view, Elizabeth Warren mentioned a new political theme on which she intended to concentrate. Opposing corruption, she told a reporter, “is becoming a much more defining part of my work.” Corruption has a common-sense definition, one that is quite stark: “The seizure of governmental authority by special interests at the expense of the general welfare,” as Richard L. McCormick, a historian of political corruption in America and a former president of Rutgers University, put it to me this week.

Clicking on New Yorker link produces “{"statusCode":404,"error":"Not Found","message":"Not Found"}

Which is probably best as the New Yorker loves Warren as much as The NY Times, New York magazine and most of the other dying publications.

So corruption is defined as "The seizure of governmental authority by special interests at the expense of the general welfare"?
Give me a break! That short sentence is the very MISSION STATEMENT of every government administration since FDR!

Here is the link to the article: https://www.newyorker.com/news/the-political-scene/what-kind-of-populist-is-elizabeth-warren

But I wouldn´t bother reading it. It´s an anti-capitalist puff piece that tries to paint rural White Trump voters as racists and conveniently white-washes Sacajaliar´s own special brand of corruption, which eliminates her from being taken seriously as an anti-corruption crusader.

"The seizure of governmental authority by special interests at the expense of the general welfare" is corruption?

So, by that definition, would an educational institution that prefers an ethnic group - let´s say Native American, for example - over the general population, be corrupt? Just wonderin´...

You people will be receiving your mortgage statement soon. Take note of the mortgage interest paid. At least in the first decade of the mortgage, interest paid is greater than principal reduced.
Not so for Lizzie Warren. She and her husband received a million dollar interest free mortgage from Harvard.Populist? I think not.

Several top Democratic donors have told former Vice President Joe Biden that they won’t help him raise funds in the early stages of the party’s 2020 presidential primary, CNBC has learned. Their reason: skepticism that Biden actually can win the Democratic primary. Biden, who has yet to announce whether he will run, has reached out to leading financiers over the past week to see whether they will help him raise money for a presidential run. His pitch: He will need their assistance to compete against candidates, such as Beto O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders,

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Trump’s Attacks
on McCain ‘Absolutely Unacceptable’
Breitbart, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 3/21/2019 7:24:44     Post Reply
Former liberal Republican California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening for his “absolutely unacceptable” attacks on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). “He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told the Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level.

NEW YORK— The FBI was investigating President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer for nearly a year before agents raided his home and office, documents released Tuesday show. The search warrant, while heavily redacted, offered new details about the federal inquiry of Cohen’s business dealings and the FBI raids of his Manhattan home and office. It shows the federal inquiry into Michael Cohen had been going on since July 2017 — far longer than had previously been known. Lanny Davis, an attorney for Cohen,

If the National Rifle Association had published a political pinup calendar in 2007, Kirsten Gillibrand would have been Miss January. Seriously. The Democrat had just been elected to Congress from a Republican-dominated exurban-rural district north of Albany after running on an expansive pro-gun platform. She quickly began churning out firearms-friendly bills, including a roll-back of restrictions on gun ownership in Washington, DC. The NRA ­responded with a big smile and an “A” rating, its highest, and Gillibrand beamed right back. But in 2009, the wind shifted: Gillibrand was

De Blasio’s program spent $300M

Mayor Bill de Blasio spent $300 million to create just 3,000 jobs, a top city official admitted Monday. Testifying at a City Council hearing, James Patchett, president of the city’s Economic Development Corp., defended the slow progress of the mayor’s $1.35 billion “New York Works” program, launched in 2017. The program is supposed to create 100,000 jobs each paying at least $50,000 by 2027. Patchett said the city has spent $300 million so far investing in job training and infrastructure for companies that expand or relocate to the city. “We have made great progress

The college-admissions scandal
should make everyone furious

The college admissions scandal should be the populist issue of our time. Most of the talk in our politics about how “the system is rigged” is incredibly abstract and symbolic. But this is infuriatingly concrete. On Tuesday, the Justice Department revealed a massive effort by wealthy parents and a shady “admissions consultant” to bribe and cheat their way into getting kids into a slew of elite schools. Prosecutors say William Singer, the ringleader, sold two forms of services. For tens of thousands of dollars, parents could pay to have a proctor correct

President Trump called on Fox News to bring back host Jeanine Pirro after her show didn´t air Saturday evening, one week after she questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Islamic faith is in opposition to the Constitution.

If Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez had grown up as I did during the Cold War in the 50´s the very last thing she would be promoting would be socialism. Granted our circumstances were very different as my family was dysfunctional, poor and we lived in the tough streets of Spanish Harlem; unlike the new Democrat congresswoman who spent most of her teen years in a more posh neighborhood. Nevertheless I benefited from a solid parochial education taught by anti-Marxist nuns.

Michael Bloomberg will not run for president in 2020, the billionaire businessman wrote in a statement posted online on Tuesday, ending months of speculation about the political future of one of the Democratic Party’s top donors. Bloomberg, a former mayor of New York, had been toying with the idea of a presidential run for months and was floated as a candidate in every presidential cycle going back to 2008. As recently as the past two months, aides to Bloomberg had been interviewing potential staffers in Iowa and New Hampshire, early contests in the Democratic primary.

Roger Stone has more explaining to do. In a brief court order Friday, the judge overseeing Stone’s criminal case asked lawyers for the longtime adviser to President Donald Trump why she wasn’t told about the “imminent general release” of a book Stone appears to be involved with. Just eight days ago, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson reprimanded Stone for violating a gag order and threatened to jail him if he continued to talk to the media.

What happens when the “believe-all-women” ethos collides with the urge to believe some men, particularly if those men are your loved ones? Perhaps a much needed return to respecting due process. A few days ago, Lisa Borders, the CEO of Time’s Up, a group affiliated with the #MeToo movement to fight for victims of sexual harassment and abuse, resigned from her position. The reason was startling. Her son, Garry “Dijon” Bowden Jr., had been accused of groping a woman

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

Former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was full of posthumous praise for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday’s edition of Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier. The context was President Trump’s renewed criticism of McCain after a newly-released deposition showed how deeply McCain was involved in the fraudulent “Russia dossier” that has been used to attack the administration and divide the nation. Brazile, who Fox News recently hired as a contributor, began by criticizing the president for speaking ill of the dead. She then continued: “John McCain leaves a legacy. He leaves a legacy of

The commandant of the Marines has warned the Pentagon that deployments to the southwest border and funding transfers under the president’s emergency declaration, among other unexpected demands, have posed “unacceptable risk to Marine Corps combat readiness and solvency.” In two internal memos, Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said the “unplanned/unbudgeted” deployment along the border that President Trump ordered last fall, and shifts of other funds to support border security, had forced him to cancel or reduce planned military training in at least five countries, and delay urgent repairs at bases.(Snip) Neller, a four-star general, said because of the

The apparent scoop du jour is that ex-VP Joe Biden is set to announce his bid with his running mate already picked out: former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. Suggestions for his VP thus far have been a who’s-who of the current field of competition for the nomination, including Harris and O’Rourke. Abrams possibly becoming The Chosen One is somewhat surprising, because her star has only so recently begun its ascendency — but not too surprising, because of her fierce intellect, warm demeanor and popularity. Stacey Abrams exudes good sense and kindness, delivered with impeccable poise: that’s the impression most
