When you’re trying to sell socialism to the American people, it’s inevitable that you’ll paint yourself into some kind of corner. Top-tier Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who’s got a good chance of securing the nomination, now finds herself stuck in a pretty embarrassing one. She and Pete Buttigieg in recent days have been playing a tit-for-tat game of who benefited from capitalism more, the youthful South Bend mayor with his lucrative gig at management consulting firm McKinsey & Co., or Warren making nearly $2 million for a string of clients as a corporate lawyer. Warren felt compelled to provide the details and the fees she received, and it must

Most Americans have learned that free healthcare 'for all' costs you a lot more money courtesy of Obamacare. We in middle class did not see our healthcare costs drop because we have to finance the free healthcare of others. Nice try Liz, but lesson learned.

The reason that Warren's activity as a lawyer does not conflict with her economic policy proposals is that in both cases their purpose was to keep money out of the hands of private individuals of no benefit to Elizabeth Warren and make sure it went into the hands of either Elizabeth Warren, or someone who was of benefit to her.

Only in the Democratic Party would candidates believe that selling "Less for More" would be a winning strategy.

It's funny how today's socialists live in fancy homes and have millions of dollars squirreled away. They don't even pretend to be a 'man' of the people.

When she can get money from them, she is a willing legal whore, when she wants to launch off of their heads as a socialist/communist politician, she steps on them, and facts no longer matter. Warren is a self-serving liar, has always been about getting more money and power for her, and lying to get ahead has never bothered old Fauxcahantas, not even a little bit. And clearly, hypocrisy doesn't bother her any more than lying.

Good comments above. In most lawsuits it's not about right and wrong it's about who has the better lawyers, biased judges and a sympathetic jury combined with who has the deepest pockets. In a small plane crash there is the possibility of many causes and even with a black box and a full FAA investigation, the chain of causes may never be found. With the famous Big Tobacco lawsuit, the win was clearly on the Deep Pockets side. People smoked up to several packs a day and coughed their way into lung cancer on a regular basis. When the suit was ended, the company with millions and millions of dollars on reserve was declared "the loser." Cigarette prices multiplied by a factor of ten to make up the losses and guess what, people are still smoking and Big Tobacco is still making money. What was accomplished? You got it, a bunch of lawyers got very rich.

Second topic: The only lawsuit in which I was personally involved was when my motorcycle was stolen by a teenager in a Virginia suburb who sold parts of it for drug money. The case was open/shut because the police found the bike in his garage while searching for drugs. I was awarded half the value of the stolen parts and was presented with a non-street legal bike. I "won" but I still lost. The mother of the little angel confessed to stealing the bike herself so I would not harm her little boy. I have hated lawyers and the court system ever since. I considered retaliation but I would have been the obvious target and would have served prison time.

The Washington Post editorial Wednesday on the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report gave the game away. “The Democratic report lacks direct testimony of Mr. Trump confirming the quid pro quo … It also acknowledges ‘unanswered questions’” – and “the speedy referral” of the impeachment inquiry from the intelligence panel to the House Judiciary Committee “smacks of political expediency.” Intel panel chairman Adam Schiff was urged to do some more digging so the committee can “provide a fuller and, to many Americans, more persuasive picture of his guilt,” the Post’s editorial board said under the title, “There’s more to learn” – perhaps the Freudian slip of the year.

Amid falling support for impeachment and worries that it will backfire against Democrats, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff released a 300-page report he says proves that President Donald Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors worthy of removing him from office. And if you read only the summary, you might think they’ve got the goods. The House impeachment report claims to have “uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.” (You can read the report here.) It says that the “scheme subverted U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and

The drop in support for impeachment in the polls is increasing pressure on Democrats to strike a deal on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). House Democrats have been eager to prove that impeachment is not getting in the way of legislative progress, a point Republicans have repeatedly pressed. For months, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has insisted that House Democrats were working to get consensus on President Trump’s signature trade deal, which would update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). She has also been adamant that impeachment would not affect USMCA talks, or vice versa, and that the tracks are totally separate.

The political left has long tried to hide its true intentions and character through the use of euphemisms. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has learned to play the game as well as anyone. She has demanded that taxpayer-funded handouts be considered “public goods.” It’s a convenient justification for taking the property of productive Americans and giving it to those who have more political favor. “People like to say, ‘Oh, this is about free stuff,'” the New York Democrat said at a Bronx town hall meeting over the weekend, before Thanksgiving. But “this is not about free stuff,” she said. “These are public goods. They’re public goods.

Remember when President Barack Obama was running around telling everyone how he’d convinced China to get serious about cutting its carbon dioxide emissions? A new report shows that Obama was easily duped. Over the course of three years, Obama met with Chinese President Xi Jinping to, he said, agree to “climate targets” (in 2014), “lay out additional actions” (in 2015), and sign the Paris Agreement (2016). In typical Obama understatement, he declared that “we may see this as the moment that we finally decided to save our planet.” Of course, anyone who looked at what China was promising could see that it was a sucker’s bet.

Gordon Sondland isn't backing down. The U.S. ambassador to the EU, who has been at the center of Donald Trump's impeachment scandal in Washington, has no intention of resigning over allegations of sexual misconduct, a close associate said Thursday. Sondland has flatly denied the accusations, made by three women, who allege he engaged in inappropriate behavior years before he was named Trump's envoy to the EU. "No intention of resigning," the associate said, in response to a question about whether Sondland believed he could still work effectively as a diplomat in Brussels given the distractions of the impeachment process,

The latest polls show the public turning against the Democrats’ attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. The party’s presidential field looks weaker by the day. Trump’s approval rating is tied with what President Barack Obama’s was at the same point in his first term. And the economy keeps chugging along. Wasn’t Trump supposed to be packing his bags by now? Start with the impeachment polls. Whatever hopes Democrats had of removing Trump from office, or even significantly damaging his reelection hopes, appear to be fading – a fact even the mainstream media is having to admit. The Hill reported on Sunday that, “New public opinion polls

The impeachment circus has begun – and President Trump must take advantage of a unique opportunity to seize the center ring. Not another wave of off-the-wall tweets. Not another raucous, ranting rally. Rather, the most powerful public relations tool of his office: the nationally televised presidential address. No other platform packs the punch of a speech from behind the Resolute Desk. The Oval Office setting would underscore Trump’s role as chief executive, commander in chief and head of state, against whom a highly politicized impeachment should not be undertaken cavalierly. It separates the gravity of the office from

With former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg possibly entering the presidential race, some Never Trumpers nervous about the Democrats’ leftward shift might feel like they have a candidate they can now support. They shouldn’t. Bloomberg was a Republican-in-name-only mayor who governed as a freedom-suppressing authoritarian. Bloomberg has done nothing more than file for the Alabama Democratic primary election and he’s already six points ahead of President Donald Trump, 43-37, in a hypothetical general election matchup, according to Morning Consult/Politico poll. But some Democratic candidates have expressed their opposition to his candidacy. He’s too rich. He’s too late.

When Sen. Elizabeth Warren released details on how she’d pay for the $34 trillion Medicare for All plan, she said that it would “make plain the choice facing the American people.” She’s right about that. The choice she’s offering would not only destroy two industries and cause an economic catastrophe, it would give the federal government unprecedented control over the decisions of private industry. Warren was forced into releasing payment details because she kept refusing to say whether her Medicare for All plan would require tax hikes on the middle class. In order to continue that fiction, Warren produced a document that even the left says is wildly unrealistic.

New battleground state polls sent tremors through Democratic circles Monday, underlining that President Trump is in with a fighting chance of reelection despite his mediocre national standing. The polls, from the New York Times and Siena College, tested the three leading Democratic 2020 candidates — former Vice President Joe Biden, and Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — against Trump in the six states that Trump carried by the narrowest margins in 2016. Those states are Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas issued the block in response to a lawsuit by El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights."The President's emergency proclamation was a blatant attempt to grab power from Congress. Today's order affirms that the President is not a king and that our courts are willing to check him when he oversteps his bounds," Kristy Parker, an attorney for the litigants, said in a statement.Secretary of Defense Mark Esper approved

British actress Daisy Ridley, who portrays Rey in “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker,” said Disney doesn’t have her on any sort of rhetorical leash when it comes to politics—particularly about President Trump. The linchpin heroine of the latest “Star Wars” movie and the previous two installments of the franchise sat down recently with the U.K. Guardian for a wide-ranging interview when the conversation veered into U.S. politics. Ms. Ridley said that Americans must suffer some form of mental illness to support the Republican president. “Given that Disney owns Star Wars, is she conscious of what issues she can talk about publicly?”

This release led to years of 'demeaning' tweets from President Trump, forced Page into therapy and left her looking for work, the lawsuit said.

Longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw came on CBS’s The Late Show Monday to talk about his new Watergate book and compare the impeachment inquiry of Richard Nixon to the current impeachment of President Trump. While he was there, he also boasted how journalists in his day could be counted on to report accurately; but today, people got their news from social media which couldn’t be trusted. While comparing his time covering Watergate to the current impeachment proceedings, Brokaw told host Stephen Colbert how journalists used to be considered trustworthy, because they had plenty of time to do their own sourcing and could control what was reported:
