Records: Prof profited by buying, selling homes
BostonHerald.com ^ | 06/02/2012 | Kronenberg/McConville

Elizabeth Warren, who has railed against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures, took part in about a dozen Oklahoma real estate deals that netted her and her family hefty profits through maneuvers such as “flipping” properties, records show.

A Herald review has found that the Democratic U.S. Senate candidate rapidly bought and sold homes herself, loaned money at high interest rates to relatives and purchased foreclosed properties at bargain prices.

There’s nothing wrong with this, but you know that Lil’ Injun, as a raving leftist moonbat, has all the while been out there condemning people for doing exactly as she did. Libs are such screaming hypocrites that it would almost be funny if they didn’t have such a destructive effect on society and the economy.

Look I despise this woman. She’s a hypocrite and an all around statist who always knows what’s better for you than you do. And she believes that the state is the source of all wealth.

But look who’s getting all this stuff out her. Who’s her enemy. Wall Street, plain and simple. They kept her off the consumer protection board and they’ll keep her out of the senate. And Scott Brown is a milktoast statist as well. So there’s really not much of a choice, other than getting rid of Harry Reid as leader, he’s not doing anything for the country. He’s already sold us out long ago.

Just be wary of these stories, they’re true, but they’re being put out by the elitist wall streeters to further their agenda which has destroyed the country.

Doesn’t sound like the type that would sell Manhattan for $24 in trinkets. More like the swindler type that would try and buy Manhattan for $24 in trinkets.

Nothing wrong with being a nepotistic capitalist.
Only when you set up your career as a crusader against nepotistic capitalism ...by and for other people.

Hey, cut her a break! She was just doing research for a course for her CHerokee brothers & sisters, ‘How to Make a Fortune Flipping Houses’.

What a stupid b-—h. I don’t usually swear but that is the only way I can describe her. Stupid lying lib b——h.

Glad someone did some research. How many other atrocities has she committed, that have been hidden from the voters?

For some reason, St. Elizabeth, patron of the 99 percenters, is getting shredded by the media. It’s really fun to watch, and actually surprising.

I really hope somebody is investigating if her adult children also used the Native American ploy for college and job applications.

Anyone know of a way to check to see if she got preferential treatment on these loans because of her mythical Indian heritage?

Well, if she were truly a liberal she would have not done that and allowed and nurtured Massachusetts and Boston into the next Detroits.

She needs to back off the anti-capitalist screeds, however, as she is one of them.

I wonder what it cost to renovate the homes so that they could be flipped? Secondly, was inflation taken into consideration when determining all this ‘profit’?

God forbid anybody make a profit these days.

The 80’s and 90’s aren’t/weren’t typified by the housing crash we’re involved in now. Just because she bought some repossed homes back then doesn’t mean that’s she’s FOR the type of crash that’s going on now.

I don’t know enough about this woman to support or oppose her politics or her campaign, but her enemy’s logic is certainly flawed.

I would think Native American groups would be calling for her scalp for posing as an Indian and especially using minority hiring preferences that would have kept a real tribal member from getting those jobs. This house flipping just shows her hypocrisy for ranting like a socialist and yet making filthy lucre on the backs of people foreclosed in their homes. I can't imagine the Democratic Party in Massachusetts isn't having a lot of second thoughts about Warren, but I guess liberals will overlook anything from Clinton's cigar tricks with an intern to Warren's delusion about being an Indian.

other than getting rid of Harry Reid as leader . . .

When judicial appointment hearings begin next year, we'll be relieved to see Chuck Grassley chairing the Judiciary Committee v. Patrick Leahy.

How do you know if you really received a diploma from harvard? They don’t have any standards. Did you really receive an F or was it a B? How can you be sure? They have liars and thieves teaching there. They must like those kind of people because they’ve said nothing about Lizzie.

I don’t care if she flipped houses, nothing wrong with that, and it helps the economy.

The Cherokee Nation is demanding proof of her claim of having Cherokee blood, and they say they have good records that don’t show her as a member by blood.

The media is ignoring this so far.

If the stories about Warren are true, what’s the problem? Are you letting your obvious hatred of wall street cloud your thinking?

Yeah, after all who is this white woman trying to take advantage of the openly racist, discriminatory double-standard that they enjoy, at the expense of EVERY one else who is not a “native American”.

Absolutely not! Just remember who’s side all these players are really on. That’s all. I certainly would rather see Brown there than her, however, let’s have our eyes wide open on this and not be manipulated. Remember who really brought down Spitzer, again deservedly so, but remember who’s pulling the strings here.

I fail to see what doing what a lot of people in this country do, a legal activity BTW, to make money makes her a bad person. Yep, she lied about being an Indian, but this has nothing to do with that. Making a profit is American, not criminal.

Get with the program, didn’t say it was illegal nor do I disapprove of it. But, her terminal case of hypocrisy is somewhat astounding, don’t you think? And, read my opening statement while you’re at it, I just tried to shove everything she is/does down her throat, or don’t you get it?

Read up on who she is. What she has said. She is an extreme left thug; who railed against capitalism and making a profit.
She birthed the nefarious Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
She is a Marxist thug.

Harvard is the toilet bowl of affirmative action and other progressive experiments as well as personalities, it shouldn’t be taken seriously as an institution of higher learning.

That doesn’t make her actions as a capitalist illegal.
