REPUBLICANS SILENCE SENATOR FOR REAL TRUTH…

February 8th, 2017

David Smith, writing in Jeff Sessions: uproar as Republicans exploit procedure to silence Elizabeth Warren for The Guardian, explains: Senate Republicans voted on Tuesday night to silence Elizabeth Warren for reading out a letter from the widow of Martin Luther King during a debate over Senator Jeff Sessions’ nomination for attorney general, eliciting furious response […]

OOPS…!

September 15th, 2016

Setting a precedent, no matter how carefully considered, always reveals unintended consequences. Or, we are meant to believe that is true. The writer in me wants to believe that FBI Director James Comey is way smarter than people want to believe and that he is playing a very deep, deep game. Here’s my tin-hat conspiracy […]

THE IMPORTANCE OF NECESSARY TROUBLE

September 29th, 2015

Senator Ted Kennedy served the people of Massachusetts for nearly half a century. He also served the people of the United States and the world. After a thankfully brief flirtation with Republican Scott Brown, voters in Massachusetts found a worthy successor to Kennedy in Elizabeth Warren. Sunday Senator Warren spoke at the Edward M. Kennedy […]

ELIZABETH WARREN: THE GAME IS RIGGED

September 28th, 2015

I continue to believe, regardless of how awesome Elizabeth Warren is, that she will wield more power, bring about greater change, as a Senator than she might in the White House.

ELIZABETH WARREN ON PLANNED PARENTHOOD…

August 6th, 2015

Yesterday I noted two extremes on the current dustup over funding Planned Parenthood. Senator Elizabeth Warren took the debate to the floor of the senate and shamed the self-righteous ideologues who can only repeat their corporate minders’ taking points. This is why I want Warren to stay in the Senate. I don’t want that body […]

WHAT IS PRESIDENT OBAMA HIDING FROM US…?

May 14th, 2015

The measure to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty failed in the U.S. Senate yesterday 52-45 with all but one Democrat—Senator Tom Carper of Delaware—voting against the measure. So who can read the text of the TPP? Not you, it’s classified. Even members of Congress can only look at it one section at a time […]

OH WELL, I’M DONE WITH ELIZABETH WARREN…

August 29th, 2014

[Update @ 1140: Mano Singham is also not pleased and offers a prescription below…] The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one […]

SO, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT…?

July 6th, 2014

I finished reading Elizabeth Warren’s A Fighting Chance yesterday and what follows are passages that grabbed my attention. In the wake of the disappointing performance of President Barack Hussein Obama, I am hesitant to get behind yet another Democrat, but I have liked and been public in my support of Warren in the past and […]

WARREN STUMBLES ON OCCUPY WALL STREET…?

October 5th, 2011

Economist Ian Welsh, whose blog I have only recently begun to follow, disapproves of Elizabeth Warren’s debate performance last evening. I’m confused with why Welsh has jumped on Warren with both feet in this matter. The question — “What do you think of the occupy protests and would you join them?” — comes up at […]
