One-percenter Liz Warren milks system then slams it in phony soundbites
Boston Herald ^ | April 26, 2014 | Adriana Cohen

While U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sleeps in her $5 million mansion in Cambridge, and got paid $350,000 to teach just one class at Harvard, she had the audacity to say in an interview with Jon Stewart this week that “the system is rigged to benefit the rich.”

Yes, Sen. Warren, that would be you. Under a free-market, capitalist system, you became a U.S. senator and multimillionaire whose own net worth hovers around $14.5 million, according to personal financial disclosure reports filed in 2011.

Newsflash for Warren: With that kind of cash, you are a one-percenter! That very demographic you vilified and campaigned against.

Yet liberal hypocrites, like Warren and countless fellow phonies in Hollywood, want to denigrate a capitalist system — and make America a socialist country after they personally benefited from a free-market system. Now once Warren and Hollywood hypocrites are living lavishly in their ivory towers, they preach about “income inequality” and the “little guys.”

Memo to Warren: Students at Harvard are among the little guys. Like millions of other college students across America, they are paying outrageously high tuition so one-percenters like yourself can reap the benefits.

If Sen. Warren truly cared about the little guy, why not return most of her salary to Harvard for teaching just one class and lobby fellow liberal professors to do the same? Then Harvard could actually lower its tuition costs for all students. Sounds like practical income redistribution to me.

It’s obvious, that despite liberals consistently blaming former President George Bush, Wall Street, the Koch Brothers, Ted Cruz and the GOP for virtually everything, it’s actually anti-work, liberal progressive policies that are screwing over the little guy, namely students. The Invincibles voted for President Obama not once, but twice, hoping he would help them get a good job upon graduation. Flash forward to 2014 and one can only feel sorry for these hope-and-change dreamers. Fifteen months into Obama’s second term, too many college grads are unemployed, underemployed, still living with their parents or working for the minimum wage.

But wait! They get to join Obamacare!

Bottom line: Sen. Warren and other political one-percenters spout phony slogans just to get re-elected and siphon money from their donors’ wallets. It’s time for college students to get street-smart and stop swallowing every vacuous soundbite.

Great editorial, only lacking the posing of one question:

If the students at Harvard are getting such great educations, why can’t they see how badly they got and are being hosed by the current admins’ policies of socialism and income redistribution? Worse, they pay giant money which will hang over them in the form of multi-year debt to hear and ratify the very propanganda that will enslave them.

Amazing.

How did she get rich? Did she inherit all that money to be worth $14 million??? If so doesn’t she have to hate herself, because she personifies what she resents???

And being worth so much, shouldn’t she give it all away, so she won’t be among the evil 1%???

Funny you should ask. It just so happens that Elizabeth Warren made her "fortune" by flipping foreclosed homes. Yes, she would purchase homes seized from people who were "down and out" and turn huge profits by re-selling them.

Such a charming, caring little liberal.

OMG, then isn’t Elizabeth Warren a hypocritical liberal?

She took advantage of people who were down on their luck.

Actually, she did well within the bounds of capitalism. But, if we’re to be good liberals, we should be angry at what she was doing flipping houses.

Or, we would be angry if an evil Republican made millions flipping houses in that manner. Because she has liberal credentials, nothing will be said about how she made her money.

It gets even better. Apparently you can add "loan shark" to her resume also because she made high-interest, short-term loans to members of her family.

Imagine George Bush or Sarah Palin doing this!

This is a situation in which any Republican would be crucified for doing the same thing which Elizabeth Warren did to get rich.

Many liberals seem to love Elizabeth Warren and wish she would run for president. There are many Democrats for whom Hillary isn’t liberal enough.

Stay tuned. If Hillary doesn’t run, we could see Warren out there. Regardless, Warren could be on someone’s short list as a VP running mate in 2016, due to how much the liberals are talking about her and love her.

Now once Warren and Hollywood hypocrites are living lavishly in their ivory towers, they preach about “income inequality” and the “little guys.”

The six contradictions of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalistic and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

That, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Get out and vote and set this country back on its course!

Perhaps the one Democrat presidential prospect whose rise bemuses me more than Hillary!’s. She’s like a human talking doll. Pull the string in the back of her neck, get left-wing boilerplate.

Good link. Her Cambridge house is that expensive because everything in Cambridge is expensive, but it looks like she was quite a player in Oklahoma real estate.

Elizabeth Warren bought a foreclosed house for $61,000 in June 1993 and sold it in December 1994 for $95,000, a 56 per cent mark-up.

She paid $30,000 for a property in August 1993 and sold five months later for $145,000, a 383 per cent gain.

Warren lent her brother $25,000 for a property in 1994 that was sold at a mark-up of 68 per cent for $42,000 in 1998.

Those houses belonged to people who were "hurting" in the recession.

The loans to relatives appear to be more tied up in her real estate speculation than outright gouging of siblings, though.

“Stay tuned. If Hillary doesn’t run, we could see Warren out there. “

If the Democrats run almost any female in 2016 they will win. They have the minority vote locked down and they know there are enough white females who will vote for “history”. To ensure victory they will continue to beat the war on women drum.

I predict if Hillary doesn’t run, Warren will be the Democrat nominee with a latino male VP candidate.

Guilt, projectionism, self hatred. That's how progressives roll. Michael Savage is right, liberalism is a mental disorder.

The system is rigged for people to LIE about their heritage to get preferential treatment under the crime called affirmative action (going away thanks to the recent 6-2 SC ruling).

This, in my opinion, is why Obama doesn’t want his college records shown: He listed himself as foreign born to get special admission because we all know his grades were very, very, very subpar.

I guess fellow 1%’er John Stewart was too busy obsessing with Fox news to take her to task for her hypocrisy...

The only way to stay at the top of the income leader board is to throw roadblocks onto the road of those trying to climb to the top.......

That's the true nature of liberals.......
