‘Bailey’ vs. ‘blood and teeth’: The inside
story of Elizabeth Warren’s collapse

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 3/7/2020 10:05:12 AM

Elizabeth Warren’s campaign brass realized they had bungled her budget at the worst possible time. Several weeks before the Iowa and New Hampshire elections, they discovered their fundraising projections for the fourth quarter of 2019 were far too rosy. The army of organizers they hired when fundraising and polling were at their peak — it ultimately ballooned to over 1,000 people — had become a straitjacket. Donations nosedived after an Oct. 15 debate, when Warren was bombarded by her rivals. Strapped for cash, the campaign didn’t have enough money to run the TV and digital ads they had originally planned for early contests

Sorry, but 'misallocated resources' ain't what done her in. There was a fundamental lack of talent and ability, an abundance of dishonesty and cringeworthy hypocrisy that caused it. That was the cake, The icing was pure vinegar.If she had this difficulty with people who are already Democrats, consider what might have happened in the general election.. Massachusetts is welcome to her.

It's as if the writers can't just get it. Most normal people know that lying about your heritage to get a job and gaming the system excludes you from the Presidency. A little unlikable fiber has a tough row to hoe.

In other words, she would have won, if not for other people's mistakes. I guess that's different from Hillary telling everybody that she really did win, before blaming everything on others.

She told so many lies and they were all so obvious. Hillary and Bill have the market cornered on lying and obscuring the truth. Warrens lies were easy to uncover. She bald faced lies about things that were easy to prove as lies. Like her kids went to public school! Also she shares the zero charisma deficit with Hillary.

One gets the sense that Progressive political analysis is based on promising something free for narrow demographics at the right moment. Appeals to national good have very little to do with the matter. (But always remember, its Capitalists who are greedy.)

First, there was never a Warren collapse. What did she win? If one never wins a thing and never improves, thats not a collapse. Is a non starter. Second, she is a paper Bolshevik that the leftist media created. She has done nothing other than lie to get ahead aas a quota. She hasn't any ideas that are different from Bloshevik Bernie just he asn't lied about his 'minority' status to get rich.

Poster #12, there are ads still running for Warren and Bloomberg in the Seattle area. I think they bought these ads months ago and the networks have to honor the contracts or have to give the money back. That's just what I'm assuming.

During a democratic town hall event hosted by the Human Rights Campaign and CNN on October 10, 2019, then-candidate Beto O’Rourke proposed revoking the tax-exempt status of churches and religious organizations that oppose gay marriage. “There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break,” he intoned, “for anyone, or any institution, any organization in America, that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us.” O’Rourke’s abuse of the term “civil rights”—his pandering attempt to borrow the moral grandeur of 1964 in order to abrogate the First Amendment—is no longer an anomaly.

“I’ll tell you a funny story,” said Mitch Daniels, the president of Purdue University. It was the day before the first home football game of the season and he was sitting in his corner office, overlooking the postcard-perfect quad. “So the cost of a year of undergraduate college at Purdue University, tuition and fees, is $9,992. I’m proud of that number. “One day I’m looking at one of those college guides, and it said, ‘Tuition and fees: $10,002.’ I called up our people and said, ‘Lookit here, there’s a mistake. You got the wrong number.’ They said, ‘That’s not a mistake.’ I said, ‘Yes, it is. Believe me. I know.’

On March 6, 1836, after 13 days of intermittent fighting, the Battle of the Alamo comes to a gruesome end, capping off a pivotal moment in the Texas Revolution. Mexican forces were victorious in recapturing the fort, and nearly all of the roughly 200 Texan defenders—including legendary frontiersman Davy Crockett—died. Thirteen days earlier, on February 23, Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna ordered a siege of the Alamo Mission (near present-day San Antonio), which had been occupied by rebel Texas forces since December. An army of over 1,000 Mexican soldiers began descending on the makeshift fort and setting up artillery.

NOLAN COUNTY, Texas – The Pioneer City County Museum Board of Directors is holding an emergency meeting after the museum’s director made a social media post saying all republicans should die. During voting for primary elections on Super Tuesday, director Melonnie Hicks made a post to her personal Facebook page that reads, “I hope every single one of you pieces of s*** that votes republican, dies today.” A screenshot of the post has since gone viral, getting thousands of shares from across the country. Hicks posted an apology to her personal Facebook a few hours after the original post, but both posts have since been removed.

“Not me, us.” The message that Bernie Sanders has campaigned on throughout the 2020 primary became a self-soothing mantra for his supporters last night. At a bar in Washington, D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood—just blocks from the theater where Abraham Lincoln was shot—a group of more than 100 Sanders followers stood, shoulder to shoulder, facing two massive projector screens, as results from Super Tuesday states trickled in. The event, hosted by a local Democratic Socialists of America group, had all the hallmarks of a gathering of Bernie fans: a patchwork of flannel shirts, scattered baskets of red-rose buttons, and very few people over the age of 35. Yet the mood was uncharacteristically somber.

For decades, the cliché about American political parties has gone that "Republicans fall in line, while Democrats fall in love." But for a significant portion of today's Democratic electorate, that is not the case. Joe Biden's campaign came back from the brink of death on Super Tuesday, on the winds of a sudden burst of coordinated support from the Democratic establishment. (Snip)But this flash coronation wasn't because Biden convinced his competitors that he had the best policies or the best temperament to take on Donald Trump. There is one reason and one reason alone the establishment has rallied around Biden: He is not Bernie Sanders.

AUSTIN, Texas — Wendy Davis has won the Democratic nomination in Texas’ Congressional District 21. She will run against incumbent Chip Roy in the general election on Nov. 3 to determine who will represent the district in the U.S. House of Representatives. AP called the race as Davis was ahead by a wide margin over her opponent, Jennie Lou Leeder. Davis rose to fame after delivering a nearly 13-hour filibuster as a Texas State Senator in 2013. In 2014, Davis lost to Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas’ gubernatorial race. Texas’ Congressional District 21 spans from Austin to San Antonio and covers Blanco and Gillespie counties.

"They don't call it Super Tuesday for nothing!" Biden exclaimed, touting his success in the majority of states. "By the way, this is my little sister, Valerie," Biden said, grabbing his wife Jill's hand. He then grabs his sister's hand saying, "And I'm Jill's husband." Jill Biden was laughing as though her husband was making a joke. Valerie, however, was looking to Jill for a response.
A Brokered Convention Would

Brokered conventions are the fan fiction of political junkies. They’re rich in dramatic possibilities, and can fill a mundane process with intrigue. In every presidential election, the prospect of a brokered convention is raised not because it is likely but because it is fun to discuss the what-ifs and to imagine the convention as something other than the choreographed boredom it has become. But now that a convention beginning without a clear nominee is more plausible, the amusing hypothetical has given way to a nightmarish reality. A contested convention would be an opportunity for a political party to tear itself to pieces on live television.

Bernie Sanders faced more pointed attacks last night over his potential vulnerabilities than he ever has at a debate. But the blustery and disorderly session once again failed to fully explore what could be the Vermont senator’s greatest general-election weakness: the massive size and scope of his spending and tax proposals, which, depending on the estimate, would cost $50 trillion to $60 trillion over the next 10 years. That would roughly double the size of the federal government, an unprecedented increase outside of wartime. More so than in any previous session, Sanders at times seemed rattled and tentative as his rivals subjected him to a crossfire of criticism—

Fifty years ago, the Broadway musical was marking time. The songwriters of the pre-rock era were all past their prime, and except for Burt Bacharach and Hal David in Promises, Promises and James Rado and Gerome Ragni in Hair, none of their successors was writing scores that made idiomatic use of contemporary pop music, much less producing shows whose subject matter reflected the fast-growing social complexities of modern American culture. Then, in the spring of 1970, Stephen Sondheim, a 40-year-old lyricist best known for writing the words to Leonard Bernstein’s music in West Side Story (1957) and Jule Styne’s in Gypsy (1959), teamed up with George Furth on a plotless show

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

With Joe Biden regaining his position as the Democratic front runner, the scrutiny of him by the right has renewed. When Biden looked like the helpless, distant finisher he was a few weeks ago, it wasn’t worth the energy. Things have changed in a hurry, though. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is still mumbling about billionaires, signaling that he’s not serious about doing what it takes to win the race. While Biden may represent a larger threat to Trump in a general election, he’s still a ripe target for political ridicule and the sights are starting to turn on one specific thing. Namely, the former Vice President’s mental health.

Except I don’t believe in magic – or coincidence, for that matter – when it comes to politics. Everything happens for a reason and, in the case of Democrats in particular, for personal or party gain (or both). Democrat operatives have been bleating the conventional wisdom throughout the Democrat-media echo chamber that Biden has “pulled off one of the most spectacular turn-arounds in presidential primary history,”

Now that the once-sprawling field of Democrats seeking the presidency has become a two-man race, many in the party are breathing a sigh of relief. All the more so because Joe Biden is the clear front-runner and the dreaded Bernie Sanders looks to be fading. So it’s all set. Biden will be the nominee and give the party a solid chance of scoring a November trifecta: beating President Trump, taking the Senate and holding the House. Count me as skeptical. Instead of a smooth ride, it’s more likely that the Dems’ desperate search for a Trump slayer will hit more turbulence and an alternative to Biden still could be necessary.

George Soros and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into Chicago to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters. The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far.
