Warren has one of the most complex and convoluted platforms among all the presidential candidates. Even if I were able to decipher them all you would probably wouldn’t have the time to read it. So, I took a few key excerpts from her lengthy platforms to show you that she is a danger to democracy, that if elected would derail our economy and impose policies that will under-cut the middle class.
TAXES – Warren wants an annual wealth tax in January 2019. The proposal would levy a 2% annual tax on household net worth above $50M, and a 3% annual tax on net worth above $1bn. The tax would affect an estimated 75,000 households, and would yield $1.9tn or $2.75tn over a 10 year period, according to two different initial estimates. With this money she said she will pay off student loan debt, increase funding to all students and fully fund students with disabilities. (ha!)
TRADE – She would roll back Trump changes to NAFTA and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement. She would also end trade wars to advantage farmers through subsidies.
Increase to welfare – Warren would direct the Department of the Treasury to disburse a payment equal to 3.9% of the average amount of annual benefits to certain individuals (except prisoners, fugitive felons, or aliens) who are entitled to a specific benefit under title II (Old Age, Survivors and Disability Insurance) of the Social Security Act, an annuity under the Railroad Retirement Act of 1974, a veterans benefit, or are eligible for a cash benefit under SSA title XVI (Supplemental Security Income), including a special benefit for individuals who perform substantial gainful activity despite severe medical impairment.
Energy – She says that “as long as we subsidize dirty sources like oil, gas, and coal, we threaten the air we breathe and the water we drink.” The means restricting our current sources of energy. Then use our federal tax dollars to buy clean energy technology such as wind and solar power. The results would be the highest energy cost to the consumer and to our industries to date, while the foreign competition has no such disadvantage.
LABOR – Warren is in favor of increasing the minimum wage and has argued that if the minimum wage had followed increases in worker productivity in the United States, it would now be at least $22 an hour. However, there is no evidence to back this up.
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT – Warren is against capital punishment (also known as the “death penalty”) and supports abolishing it in the United States.
VOTE – She would restore voting rights to ex-felons to aid democrats in their give-away policies to lure voters to them, forced on us through populism. So much for the value of an informed and responsible voter if she’s elected.
GUN LAWS – Warren supports suing gun manufacturers for the illegal use of their product. She would also reinstate the laws repealed regarding large capacity magazines and so-called assaults weapons in general.
BIO – Warren is running around the country touting her credentials as a special needs teacher and how it was her calling, her passion, and how she loved it more than anything else! However, the facts say different. Warren was fired after 12 months of teaching and she did not go back to her great love ever again. Instead she changed careers to become a lawyer. She’s dropped her claim to native American heritage that got her elected to the Senate after it was determined that she has none. Warren is just a self-serving liberal bureaucrat who has made a fortune feeding from the public trough.
There’s not a single Demwit candidate that’s worth a Tinker’s Damn. Those who are still registered Democrats should be angry as heck at this selection of Socialists!
Even the MSM realizes the democrats have a full roster of disasters to choose from. It’s fun watching the talking heads herniate themselves trying to endorse their favorites.
In this state, it’s irrelevant. It’s probably our own fault that sane Californians won’t have a significant voice in November. All we can do is watch and pray.
We might as well write in Professor Irwin Corey, or Chris. Either one of the world’s two foremost authorities.
Off topic again.
Here’s Trump’s speech in Davos today, if you missed it. It’s his best speech ever. IMHO
Only five lies! Yes, perhaps that is his best.
Let’s take just one from the fact-check:
Claim: Trump said the American economy was in “a rather dismal state” when he took office.
Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP
Fact: Trump inherited a fairly strong economy from his predecessor, President Obama.
Under Obama, the economy underwent its longest sustained expansion on record, one that Trump is still overseeing.
In the first year of his presidency back in 2017, Trump added 2,188,000 jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But the economy created more jobs in every year of Obama’s second term than it did in Trump’s first year, for example.
I have been thoroughly enjoying watching Warren and Sanders trash each other. Evidently Fauxcahontas is the chosen one. Democrats and their media toads have been crapping all over Sanders including, significantly, Hillary! 😀
The debate in Des Moines was a scream! You can’t make this stuff up. Liars calling each other liars. It was so beautiful I almost cried (with laughter). And Bernie the sexist, great stuff! Even CNN jumped on that bandwagon!
You have to love it when Democrats eat their own. When Hillary stole the nomination in 2016 Sanders went out and stumped for her in some 40 odd appearances. Now Hillary is returning the favor and slamming his character along with the rest of the DNC. What is not to like?
Warren is a serial liar of immense and astounding stupidity. She is the perfect Rat candidate. She is THE BEST Rat candidate!
I hope Warren runs, Trump would win by a landslide.
Whenever Fauxahontas opens her mouth, I’m reminded of a screech owl. . . . . .
Warren lies so much it has to be apart of her DNA and actually believes them. Just like she believes the Indian tribe, from the middle of the country, passed down to her from her grandparents a seafood recipe. Big mistake thinking voters are as dumb as she is.
The dilemma is believing anything any of the Dems candidates are saying. Between Pelosi, Schumar, Schifty and Obama it’s a hard pick for the biggest liar on any given day. Sanders lies about him being a socialist when he’s a flat out communist in disguise.
Watching Schifty lying as the lead manager of the impeachment hearing is gag worthy. I hope Dr. Drew does run against him and gets him removed from congress.
Before calling others liars, would you like to respond to any of the five lies I linked to told by Donald Trump in the speech you endorsed as his “best ever?”
Or could you just stop pretending to care about lies on principle?
And now we have skin crawling, stomach turning Creepy Shifty Schiff. Worth watching to the end, if your stomach can take him.
Some of Adam Schiff’s Many Lies – Part 1 -:
Schiff, the quintessential Rat. A supreme, straight faced, unabashed, pathological serial liar. That this dirt bag is chair of the “intelligence” committee is absolutely insane.
Yep! : )
Thursday morning Branco offering:
If you care about lies told about impeachment, why have you said nothing about Trump’s impeachment lawyer Pat Cipollone for falsely claiming congressional Republicans were not allowed in the SCIF while the House was reviewing classified information on impeachment? There were plenty of Republicans on the relevant committees that were allowed access. Many, like Matt Gaetz, refused to show. This was a blatant lie told to cast Trump as a persecuted victim, and if Cipollone had told it at a real trial in defense of a client, he would have been punished by the judge. So to pretend Trump is being treated unfairly here is ridiculous. He has privileges and advantages here that no defendent has in a real trial.
“It doesn’t matter that Trump is lying about the economy. Also, look how great the economy is doing under Trump!”
Amazing argument, even for you, David.
I am fairly sure Elizabeth Warren would never say this:
“He’s also doing the rockets. He likes rockets, and he does good at rockets, by the way.” —Trump on Elon Musk
The president is not fit to pass high school, let alone run a country. Stop this madness.
Answer this, please:
Do you believe Joe Biden had the power to issue this demand himself?
Do you believe that Obama, the IMF, the EU, and even some Republicans in Congress wanted Shokin out to save Hunter Biden?
Do you believe that replacing Shokin with a more aggressive prosecutor was good for Hunter Biden?
If you can’t answer these questions in the affirmative, you need to stop pretending that this video demonstrates anything other than Joe Biden implementing an uncontroversial foreign policy, one that did not benefit him or his family in any way.
So turns out Trump did know Lev Parnas.
Why do you think he lied about that?
By the way. The name “Lev Parnas” isn’t like “Voldemort.” He’s not going to appear in your house and bribe you into getting an ambassador fired so that he can keep committing crimes.
I mean, I assume that’s why none of you have ever typed his name on this website, despite his involvement with Trump’s Ukraine scandal being a huge factor in the impeachment you can’t stop talking about.
Is there another reason?
Chris is constantly whining that I don’t answer his “questions” he posts here and there. That’s ’cause I find that I have many other constructive things to do with my time.
Tough bananas, Chris.
No, you can’t answer the questions about the Bidens and Ukraine because doing so would show that your conspiracy theories on this issue are baseless, that Trump’s desire to investigate them was corrupt and personally motivated, and that your entire media ecosystem is now indistinguishable from Russian propaganda.
