    The campaign of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is holding a contest for supporters to win an invitation to a fundraiser the candidate is having with Massachusetts U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren in Louisville. In an email to supporters, the Grimes campaign told recipients that by contributing to the campaign they are automatically entered into the running to get an invite for that person and a guest to attend a brunch fundraiser with Grimes and Warren in Louisville on Sunday, June 29. The Grimes campaign had previously announced that Warren would be making campaign stops with the candidate during...

    I told you so.  Elizabeth Warren’s repeated supposed refusals to run for President always were framed in the present tense: I am not running for President.That, of course, technically was correct.  I don’t think anyone of note “is” running for President yet, but many are seriously considering it and likely will run.Nothing makes Warren’s word games more clear than her interview with (my law school classmate) Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post:

    Breitbart ^ | 23 Apr 2014 | Michael Patrick Leahy
    In her new autobiography, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reiterates claims that her parents "eloped" despite the existence of a marriage certificate and contemporaneous press accounts of their wedding. Although the subject caused her a major headache during her 2012 campaign for Senate, Warren devotes less than 1,500 words in the book to her claims of Native American heritage. ... Regarding the broader claim of Native American heritage, Warren's standard of proof in the book is simply "family folklore," unsubstantiated assertions made to her by family members about Cherokee and Delaware ancestors. Despite a protacted public debate on the subject and...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has served in the U.S. Senate for less than two years, but her message of economic populism and boosting the middle class has catapulted her to stardom with Democrats nationwide. In her new book, "A Fighting Chance," Warren reflects on growing up in a middle-class family in Oklahoma and shares how that upbringing shaped her mission to help struggling middle-class families. “I wrote this book out of gratitude. I am the daughter of someone who ended up as a maintenance man, a woman who worked a minimum-wage job at Sears. And I ended up in the...

    Former Sen. Scott Brown said Friday he would not run in a special Senate election in Massachusetts, dealing a setback to Republican hopes of winning the seat being vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry. Brown, who electrified his party with an upset win in a 2010 special election but lost his re-election bid in November, ended weeks of intense speculation about his future with a written statement announcing his decision. … GOP officials in Washington and Massachusetts widely considered Brown the strongest possible Republican candidate in a state that traditionally favors Democrats. With Brown out of the running, potential...

    The bruising Massachusetts Senate battle between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Elizabeth Warren is deadlocked just hours before Election Day, with both the candidates and the voters suffering from a barrage of attack ads, a new UMass Lowell/Boston Herald poll reveals. The poll shows Brown holding a 49-48 percent advantage over Warren among likely voters, dispelling earlier polls and Democratic claims of a small Warren lead. The one-point lead is well within the poll’s 4.1 percent margin of error.

    Only in Massachusetts could a lowlife bottom feeder like Elizabeth Warren ever be considered for high office. Putting aside her hard-core followers, her true believing cadres who would follow her off a cliff, I can understand why many mainstream Massachusetts Democrats are supporting her. They support her because they want revenge against Scott Brown for taking the "Kennedy seat" during the special election two years ago. To accomplish this they have decided to hold their noses and shut their eyes and ears. Where should I start? It difficult to know when so much about Elizabeth Warren is based upon lies....

In the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, the firebrand CU professor compared some World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi. The Board of Regents fired him in 2007 for academic misconduct after discovering patterns of plagiarism and fabrication in his body of work. Churchill has been trying to get his job back on the Boulder campus, where he taught ethnic studies. He won a lawsuit against the university in 2009....

If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results to come as soon as they are available. WAJ UPDATE: It’s official, the delegates have deprived voters of a choice for the first time in history, and handed the nomination to Warren.

    The firing of Ward Churchill for academic incompetence and fraud is long overdue. The fact that the chairman of the Colorado University regents said it was "not an easy decision to make" reminds us how this scandal lifts the lid on the vast corruption of the academic process that tenured radicals have accomplished in the last several decades. Churchill had no academic credential to be hired in the first place. His degree was an MA in graphic arts -- he was a painter -- bestowed by a rinky dink experimental college which is now defunct. He got an affirmative action...

    IT'S said that a "picture is worth a thousand words." For more than 25 years, conservative writers have been telling anyone who would listen that our higher education system was broken - that indoctrination was trumping education and our kids were throwing away their tuition dollars propping up vicious relics of the '60s and supporting universities that were increasingly repressive. These words, coming from such luminaries as Allan Bloom, Dinesh D'Souza, Alan Charles Kors and David Horowitz, persuaded much of the conservative chattering class that something was wrong. But mainstream Americans seemed unconcerned, with their own (often fond) college memories...

    University Expected to Fire Controversial Professor Today By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor July 24, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - Ward Churchill's own lawyer expects the tenured University of Colorado professor to be fired on Tuesday. "Ward Churchill will be fired, and Wednesday, I'll be filing a lawsuit" over free-speech rights," the Denver Post quoted attorney David Lane as saying. The university's governing board plans to hold a closed session on the Boulder campus today, and a decision on Churchill is expected in the middle of the afternoon. According to the Denver Post, Churchill's supporters are planning to show their support at...

    DENVER, (AP) -- The president of the University of Colorado has recommended that a professor who likened some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi should be fired, according to the professor and the school. Ward Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, has denied the allegations and threatened a lawsuit if he is dismissed. CU President Hank Brown made the recommendation in a 10-page letter sent to the chair of the committee that handles tenure issues. University spokeswoman Michele McKinney confirmed published reports about the recommendation Monday but said the school would not make the letter public. The university's governing...

    CU committee would give Churchill a virtual pass For anyone who cares about the integrity of American higher education, recent reports that the University of Colorado's Privilege and Tenure Committee has recommended professor Ward Churchill be suspended for a year but not fired is a blow to the stomach. And bad news for CU, too. Don't get us wrong. We don't believe for a moment that President Hank Brown will actually adopt the committee's advice and let Churchill remain as a permanent blight on the Boulder campus. At the end of this month Brown will, we remain confident

    Lawyer: Suspension recommended for prof. 16 minutes ago A University of Colorado committee has recommended that a controversial professor accused of faulty research be suspended for one year rather than fired, his attorney said. Ward Churchill, a tenured professor of ethnic studies, touched off a national firestorm with an essay that compared some of the 2001 World Trade Center victims to Adolf Eichmann, a key planner of the Holocaust. It was some of his other work, however, that led an interim chancellor of the Boulder campus and an another committee to recommended Churchill be fired. The professor was accused of...

    A couple of years back, the University of Colorado forged a nonbinding agreement with legislators, promising to protect and nurture ideological diversity on campus. In fact, it was only last month that CU president Hank Brown expressed his apprehension to regents about the lack of movement on this front. Well, if Brown is serious about this endeavor, he should make it a priority to investigate the firing of social conservative CU instructor Phil Mitchell - and not for the reasons you may suspect. Mitchell, whose plight I first wrote about two years ago, believes that publicity surrounding CU's initial attempt...

    Professor Suing To Get Legal Fees from CU. A judge Wednesday refused to stop dismissal proceedings against a University of Colorado professor accused of research misconduct after he filed a lawsuit seeking $20,000 in legal fees from the school. Denver District Judge Stephen Phillips agreed with university attorney Patrick O'Rourke who argued that ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill would still be able to seek attorneys' fees and lost wages if he successfully fights to keep his job. Churchill has denied the allegations and is appealing a recommendation by university officials that he be fired. Churchill's attorney, David Lane, asked Phillips...
