The grimmest candidate of all may be Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who dominated Wednesday’s debate stage. Ms. Warren is running on her own unique brand of anticorporate populism, one that attacks “a small group that holds far too much power.” Every problem she sees in America—climate change, guns, student-loan debt, health-care prices, legislative gridlock—is a product of “systemic” corruption. Only “a thinner and thinner slice at the top” is succeeding, Ms. Warren insisted. Everyone else is failing.

Comments:

Again, Outline has left off the first paragraph: It’s a wonder Democratic presidential candidates can face the day. To listen to them debate, they live in an America saddled with historic wealth inequality, governed by rapacious monopolies, burdened with dirty air and water. This alternate America has human-rights violations and treats women as second-class citizens. Mitch McConnell is the Most Powerful Man on the Planet.

PT branded Lying Lizzie as Pocahontas. Prefer Howie Carr who calls her Grannie Clampett. The LSM seems to ignore that Princess Liealota got where she is by lying about her ethnic heritage and they lying about lying. All of her plans are designed to destroy the American economy. I was surprised last night. I thought she'd speak in Cherokee. If Plugs prevails expect him to pick a woman as VEEP. Will probably Amy. She keeps her mean streak out of sight. Mass gave us Lizzie Borden and Lizzie Warren. I'll take the one with the axe.

I find Lizzie a marvel of leftist social engineering. She scammed the affirmative action canard for decades while robbing a true Native American a prestigious spot on the faculty of an Ivy League school. Then, when it was proved beyond a scintilla of doubt that she has less Native American heritage than 99.99% of the American population, does she slink away and hide out of embarrassment, as most normal people would do, ask for forgiveness for her chicanery or offer some sort of restitution to the University and Native American people for the scam she committed? No. She continued unburdened with guilt. And now, as a Senator running for president, she continues to lecture America about our shortcomings as if she alone is endowed with some unique brand of moral and ethical integrity that this country has somehow fallen short of. As my Jewish friends would say, "She's the very definition of chutzpah." I never thought I would witness this type of creature in person, but she’s a true sociopath.

She's right, there's a small group with too much power that are responsible for the majority of Americas problems, it's called Congress, of which she's a member. An out of control judiciary that aids and abets them is the rest of the problem!

Seems like she is always screaming and pandering for votes. She acts desperate. No one dares to ask how many millions she and her husband have. When she taxes Americans 70% is that going to be on combined income? How many remember her claim to fame was as a financial guru on Dr. Phil ? Bet he and Orca aren't too pleased about her taxing the rich.

If you've paid attention, she defines the 'rich' as over $10,000,000. Apparently, she hasn't quite reached that plateau yet. Lying your way into a professorship that probably netted her $500-700,000/year to teach one radical commie course apparently didn't make her rich enough. She must have spent that money like a drunken sailor. When she reaches that $10M goal, the rich will suddenly become $20,000,000 or more. Granny Clampett, a perfect monitor.

Make America Even Greater 2 replies

Those themes were a mix of traditional Republican positions (tax reform, deregulation, conservative judges, military strength) and a populist agenda (draining the swamp, trade, immigration). Mr. Trump spent much of Tuesday night highlighting the promises kept and the resulting prosperity, while vowing to complete those items that have had a rougher ride—the border, that China deal, health care. He threw in a few new proposals at the end, like eradicating AIDS in America and a mission to Mars. But broadly the president’s message was this: Give me four more years to protect and finish the plan.

Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death. On Saturday, Mr. Trump said the Times had committed “a virtual act of treason.” The charge, levied on Twitter , was in response to an article about American cyber incursions into the Russian electrical grid that his own aides had assured our reporters raised no national-security concerns. Few paid much attention. Many news organizations, including the Times, determined the accusation wasn’t even worth reporting, a sign of how inured we’ve grown to such rhetorical recklessness.

But that’s hard to square. The Justice Department has flooded the committee with information, turning over 17,000 pages of documents, and making officials available for hours of interviews. More telling, the process isn’t over. The department is readying thousands of pages more, and the committee has already scheduled additional interviews. Contempt is usually a way of breaking an impasse; there’s no need for it when an agency is cooperating. So why the rush? Mr. Cummings’s vote is the left’s latest, desperate effort to get the Supreme Court to stand down from an imminent ruling over that same census question.

In 2014, Interior delayed the renewals, calling for more “study.” In early 2016, the department’s solicitor issued a howler of a legal opinion, granting the government new authority to deny Twin Metals automatic lease renewals. It was an Obama extralegal classic: The opinion ignored precedent, existing rights and regular procedure. In a midnight kiss to green activists, the department officially blocked the leases on Dec. 15, 2016.

With all of the high-profile reports of corruption within the college admissions process surfacing, it is apparent that there is not always scholastic meritocracy. Asian Americans are being routinely discriminated against, throttled in their admissions, despite their statistically higher performance in both coursework and pre-college entrance exams. Similarly, wealthy Americans are being persecuted and penalized, under the guise of equality, for their attempts to circumvent the admissions process.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A glimpse of student athletes in peak physical condition vaping just moments after competing in a football game led Stamford High School Principal Raymond Manka to reconsider his approach to the epidemic. His school traditionally has emphasized discipline for those caught with e-cigarettes. Punishments become increasingly severe with each offense, from in-school suspensions to out-of-school suspensions and, eventually, notification of law enforcement.

The Washington Post reports that Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler is arguing for a formal impeachment inquiry, as are “five members of Pelosi’s leadership team.”

WASHINGTON—House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said the Justice Department had agreed to turn over 12 categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials connected to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mr. Schiff said Wednesday that the Justice Department had agreed to turn over the documents on a rolling basis, to be completed by the end of next week. He also postponed a committee meeting, but said the panel remained ready to enforce its subpoena for the full report and underlying documents. Mr. Schiff had set Wednesday as a deadline for the Justice Department to cooperate.

There are now 23 candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination with New York’s mayor jumping in. The unveiling of the spies and tactics behind the fake collusion tale continues apace. It looks as though Mueller will testify before Congress on the 12th of Never and the impeachment train will never leave the station. Inspector General Horowitz’s reports on Comey and another on charges of illegal conduct in the DoJ and FBI are due soon, though, as usual, seem to be a long time aborning.

Better late than never: Attorney General William Barr has tasked U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. If the Justice Department had done this two years ago, the country would be in a much better place. Mr. Barr has made clear that he intends to restore his department’s credibility. The Durham appointment is a perfect example of that effort. This is how Justice ought to operate, from the nature of the probe to the choice of prosecutor. It’s a striking contrast to the hash that became of the Mueller investigation. Mr. Barr gets credit for

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

Sen.

He compared the transgender rights struggles to the civil rights of black Americans, recalling a time when they were lynched in America. Booker also said that up to 30 percent of LGBT schoolchildren were afraid to go to school. He then argued that Democrats needed to do more than just support the Equality Act proposed in Congress. “We need to have a president that will fight to protect LGBTQ

A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G.

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

While many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney claimed the accusation placed by Jean Carroll, who previously said “most people think of rape as being sexy,” is a “serious” allegation, according to CNN. “It’s a very serious allegation,” Romney said. “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”

The Supreme Court ordered further proceedings in the dispute over a citizenship question on the 2020 census form Thursday, saying the Trump administration apparently concealed its true reason for adding the query. Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the Court’s opinion, portions of which were unanimous. “It is rare to review a record as extensive as the one before us when evaluating informal agency action — and it should be,” Roberts wrote. “But having done so for the sufficient reasons we have explained, we cannot ignore the disconnect between the decision made and the explanation given. Our review is deferential, but we are “not required to exhibit a naiveté

Jackie O's daughter Caroline Kennedy is giving someone the opportunity to experience a slice of the family's unique, glamorous, and very closely-guarded life after putting her mother's sprawling Martha's Vineyard estate on the market for a staggering $65 million — four decades after the former first lady purchased it. The 340-acre property includes more than a mile of private Atlantic beachfront near Cape Cod, Massachusetts, as well as lush surrounding landscapes, all of which have been perfectly preserved by Kennedy and her family for the last 40 years. Onassis was first attracted to the oceanfront property in 1979,
