What I saw at the Elizabeth Warren rally

Original Article

It's always useful to know what a campaign is like, the lay of the land, so to speak, the supporters, the campaign operation, the candidate herself. Here in San Diego, Elizabeth Warren paid a visit Thursday, so I went, taking my elderly mother, blending into the crowd to learn how things looked from the Democrat side. The most obvious takeaway is that Warren is rising. Based on her own energetic appearance and stump speech, she's now begun campaigning as if she's got the Democratic nomination in the bag, and she's now attempting to move to the center. That signals a swift campaign response to the de facto collapses of her


She won't beat Trump.

Her campaign may be efficient and organized enough to win the nomination. She'll do well in Berkeley, Madison, and the DC Beltway. But I think her appeal to Rust Belt and southern voters will be minimal.

good article..and love Monica's writings...but, aside from everything else..I am just going to comment on her optics..honestly, she reminds me of a praying mantis..storming the stage and waving her arms skyward..sort of manic like..and she comes off on TV as a your 9th grade math teacher that you were scared of..In person, maybe she doesn't come off that way..but most of the the voters are not going to see her in person..all they will get is on TV..and she doesn't ..optic..that well...

I saw Warren as a dynamite VP candidate - she'd likely dominate Pence and would be insulated from Trump's Fauxcahontas meme. But she's too far left for the top of the ticket and won't be able to escape video of her promises to date. And I suspect she'll not be so 'youthful' in 2024.

That... was an Honest report. We would do well to appreciate a balanced and objective view of the other side. After all, the entire Left Media missed the dynamics of the 2016 election by writing off the pulse and vibe of the Trump campaign.

"..she's now attempting to move to the center" As will whoever ends up being nominated, with the full support and protection of Old Media criminals. The geezer guys are face-planting, it seems the dims will end up with a female -- Warren, PIAPS, Mooch -- where the War on Women will be the script. I can't imagine the turbulence we'll be experiencing one year from today, batten down the hatches.

"swift campaign response to the de facto collapses of her Democratic rivals, which seem to be happening" Note that Liz's hands have been kept clean of Biden's demise. SOMEONE decided Biden needed to be decapitated and a clever feint was launched that seemed to target Trump yet also ensnared Biden. Everyone KNOWS that Uncle Joe is all bluster and no bacon. He has been tested and is falling apart. His only value to the campaign was that he wasn't a crazy Leftist but now that it has been confirmed he is clearly ethically challenged and a dolt, his value is racing to the bottom. And SURPRISE, Liz is all set to take over, just like SOMEONE planned. "Based on her telling of the matter, she was remaking herself as regular Jane." Yup, that's the narrative. But will it hold up in the age of Trump? You KNOW it will not. We are no longer going to sit back and allow the dems to define themselves as something they really are not. Liz has YUGE problems in that area. Plus, as much as she would like to pivot to the middle, she has a ton of Leftist baloney she is spouting that WILL be brought up and what will she say? Which Liz is real? The primary Liz? The general Liz? Or, most likely, NONE OF THE ABOVE. The dems are not driven by principles so they have no grounding. What they tell you today may have no value tomorrow. You never can be sure of their promises because they feel liberated to blow with the wind. Liz won't only be running against her own problems. She will be running against a party of little accomplishment and irrational behaviors.

But, she's lying-about-my-race-Rachel Dolezal. We will never forget that she claimed to be American Indian and stole from a true AI to advance herself. That infuriates all Americans who KNOW we have AI in us, but can't prove it. My grandmother's family is connected to the Florida Seminoles, but we don't go around putting it on documents to get over.

I read through the entire article and appreciated Monica's honest opinion of Trump's most likely opponent. She kept mentioning how warm and genuine Elizabeth Warren came across. Has Monica ever listened to Elizabeth Warren when she is questioning someone in court or in Congress? I have. In those environments she comes across as one of the nastiest people I have ever heard. Once I heard her harangue and bash Ben Carson, who is one of the gentlest people I have ever heard. So, I believe Elizabeth Warren's campaign persona is a very good act, and I wonder how long she can keep it up.

Cherokee Lizzie's story about her family economic situation is bull Schiff. She graduated from high school at at age 16. And she tells a gloriously big lie - that she and her parents could not afford 50 dollars for mher to go to the local community college. She went to George Washington University on a debate scholarship, dropped out at age 18 to marry her h.s. sweetheart. They moved to Houston, and she finished her undergraduate degree at the University of Houston. She is a Law professor, Monica! Law professors, and other professors know how to work a crowd. Professors can always bull Schiff crowds - it is what we do. (When I was about to begin my teaching career, I sought the advice of one of the young professors at the university where I completed my doctorate. He gave me two bits of advice. First, don't tell the students everything you know during the first class session. Second, always remember that the students don't know anything.) Cherokee Lizzie is a liar. Just as Jo Biden is a liar. But Cherokee Lizzie is a smart liar. Old Jo is not.

Warren is a radical but her proposals based on "getting even" with the "rich" probably resonate with a significant part of the population that favors redistribution of wealth. She also was not in the first Dem debate and did not raise her hand to give free medical coverage to illegal immigrants which would have been fatal. She is in favor of decriminalizing the border (open borders) and vastly increasing the numbers of immigrants allowed into the country mostly to increase the Democrat party voter pools. Her tax policies to reverse the tax breaks and deregulation of Trump's administration would drive many businesses and their capital out of this country resulting in massive unemployment just as the immigrant population explodes. This will cost her a lot of Hispanic support who know what the real cost of open borders is. Her fantasy projections of tax revenues by taking from billionaires and redistributing their private property to the government is classic socialism and she has lost most of her big donor sources at least on the East Coast. Her biggest liability is her enthusiastic support for Medicare-for-all. This scheme sets reimbursement levels for hospital and drug costs at such low levels that is will drive most medical providers out of business. It also requires the 80% of people who are quite happy with their employer paid insurance to get in line with the new immigrants for medical care and puts the care of seniors who actually paid into the plan over their lifetimes in serious jeopardy. For this and other reasons I don't think she can fool enough people with her moderate demeanor and snappy speeches to get them to vote for their unemployment and financial ruin in the name of socialism.

If Warren beats Trump, America won't be worth saving. And it won't be. Trump may very well be the last Republican President in any event, due to demographics, fraud and the fact that a lot of us aren't going back.

#20, I think that's Cherocheat. I would have liked for Showalter to comment on the "woman" issue. It will be an obvious issue in the Warren v President Trump race. I think that because of Hill C's constant whining about being cheated may help President Trump where otherwise Warren would have the advantage. I think Hill has done real damage to the woman need to support woman. With PT's excellent record of accomplishments he is going to be tough to beat. 92% negative press and he is right around the 50% approval mark.

President Donald Trump has a love/hate relationship with polls, surveys and predictions. He loves the ones that paint him in a positive light, and, of course, he hates all those “fake” ones that don’t. He’s going to absolutely adore this one. According to Moody’s Analytics, Trump is headed toward another four years in the White House. And, if the numbers are right, it won’t even be close. In fact, his Electoral College victory could very well be wider than the 304-227 margin he enjoyed over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Since 1980, Moody’s has managed to nail the outcome every time but once — like many, it didn’t see Trump coming.

Up until now, I'd had a healthy respect for the books and academic work of Fiona Hill, the now-former White House Russia expert who testified in a closed-door hearing about her knowledge of Russia, Ukraine and Trump, apparently pretty negatively. I've read "Mr. Putin," her most important book, and while I didn't particularly agree with the sour picture she painted of Russia and President Vladimir Putin, she was pretty solid in her scholarship even if her assessments were exclusively negative. Now, it looks like she might just have a soft spot for Joe Biden, who wrote one of three blurbs for her 2012 book called "Mr. Putin," co-written with

When the news broke yesterday that Elizabeth Warren probably invented the tale of her pregnancy firing as a teacher, some benefit of the doubt was fair, given that an old tape of her describing the reason she left her job could have been incomplete, and maybe there was more than one reason she left the job. Welp. Now we've got the county records. The Washington Free Beacon went digging into the microfiches or the physical records themselves from the early 1970s, which is very challenging non-Google research doable only on location in Riverdale, New Jersey, and pretty well blew that Warren story out of the water.

Instead, some are already trying to make peace with the prospect of a Warren presidency.

How do you campaign for an election that doesn’t exist? Or lobby against policies that you’re meant to support? In late Putinism, the answer is often to do so publicly, loudly, but deniably. Politics is in the air, after all, with a sense that the country's future, so long locked behind walls of conformity and conservatism, may be up for grabs. As I wrote in my last column, this also means debate has erupted within the elite, on everything from succession to stimulus, personalia to policy. Perhaps the most striking expression of this was the recent interview Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu gave to the middle-brow pro-government newspaper Moskovskii

Elizabeth Warren has a pretty impressive penchant for makin' it up when it comes to serving a leftist narrative. Fake Indian, complete with tales of discrimination experienced, worked for awhile, until it didn't. So did the fake research, claiming medical costs are the reason behind most bankruptcies. Nope, not at all. Now we have Warren saying that when she became pregnant as a young teacher of special-ed students, presumably in the 1960s, she was asked to leave her post for being visibly pregnant. A found tape of her speaking in 2008 suggests maybe she actually wanted to leave her dead-end job teaching special-ed to scale the career ladder instead.

(A degrading task, but somebody had to do it.) This is unusual for Republicans, who have traditionally maintained a live and let live policy toward the Democrats no matter what the circumstances.

The most surprising thing about the latest unemployment report isn’t that the rate dropped to the lowest level since December 1969. It’s that unemployment wasn’t supposed to get anywhere near that low under President Trump. At least, not if you believed mainstream Keynesian economists. The economy created 136,000 jobs in September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics survey of businesses. The separate household survey, which is used to track unemployment, showed that the number of unemployed dropped by 275,000. Not only did the job market pull 275,000 off the unemployment line last month, it pulled more than 100,000 who had dropped out of the labor force

Joe Biden has called for a constitutional amendment to publicly finance elections as he unveils an ethics plan pointed at President Donald Trump.

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. The Wisconsin State Journal reports Tuesday that one post generated 257,000 reactions, 55,000 comments and 45,000 shares. House Democrats are pursuing an impeachment inquiry to investigate Trump's suggestion that Ukraine investigate the business dealings of Joe Biden's

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals. The findings are alarming for the breadth of Russia’s operation, the Kremlin’s direct involvement and the ongoing threat posed by foreign meddling to American democracy. But perhaps more than anything, the report amounts to a bipartisan rebuke of the White House’s own disinformation campaign to shift the blame away from Russia. The committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., released a second report this week that furthered the findings of America’s intelligence community

Consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble faces pressure from environmentalists to clean up its act. More than 150 groups are pushing the maker of Charmin toiler paper and Bounty paper towels to use recycled materials in its products. Currently, neither of those products uses recycled paper, and about one-third of it is sourced from Canada's boreal forest — a large swath of virgin forest that rings the Arctic Circle and acts as a critical check on climate change.
