    Elizabeth Warren has gone on a Twitter rampage against Donald Trump this weekend--on Saturday morning, she started with a response to his vice presidential pick, Mike Pence, whom she referred to as a "perfect match" for Trump: "Two small, insecure, weak men who use hate & fear to divide our country." [Snip] She attacked the Republican platform, too -- "The @GOP platform says overturn marriage equality & it supports parents putting their LGBT children through conversion therapy. Disgusting," she tweeted. [Snip] Late Sunday morning, she concluded, "You're nothing but a thin-skinned bully and a lousy, cheating businessman."

D’Amato told Maria Bartiromo that Hillary allowed Russia to take ownership of US uranium so they could sell it to Iran. Hillary made it possible for the Russians to take control of one of our huge uranium producers and allow them to own the company, export the uranium and who do they sell the uranium to? Iran! Now if people knew that and that the foundation as a result of that got $135 million. I think people would start saying, “What?” Former Senator Al D’Amato (R-NY)...

    On Friday in a press conference, Attorney General Loretta Lynch vowed to "accept" investigators' and prosecutors' recommendations regarding whether to indict presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's alleged use of an insecure email server. This announcement set aside whisperings that Lynch would be a safety net for Clinton if an indictment was recommended, particularly in light of a certain tarmac rendezvous with Bill. While Clinton waits to hear her fate, some wonder if an indictment would help the all-but-defunct campaign of her rival, Bernie Sanders. Looking at the inevitable domino reaction that could come with an indicted presidential candidate, the question...

    In an apparent rejection of the basic principles of the U.S. economy, a new poll shows that most young people do not support capitalism. The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent said they support it. It isn't clear that the young people in the poll would prefer some alternative system, though. Just 33 percent said they supported socialism. The survey had a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points. The results of the survey are difficult to interpret, pollsters noted. Capitalism...

    WASHINGTON - As Hillary Clinton campaigned with Elizabeth Warren for the first time Monday, the joint appearance raised the question: Is America ready for two women on a presidential ticket? Clinton is, of course, the first woman ever to clinch a major-party nomination for president. And she’s considering adding a second woman to the ticket, with Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, as a running mate. “There is a wow factor to having two women on the ticket,” said Jim Hodges, a former governor of South Carolina and a Clinton ally who urged the campaign to select a woman. “It’s...

    A former top Clinton administration diplomat who used his political sway to garner support for the Iran nuclear deal apparently was being bankrolled the entire time by Boeing -- which is set to make billions off a jet deal with Tehran now that sanctions have been lifted. ADVERTISEMENT Thomas Pickering, who also served as co-chairman of the board examining the Benghazi attack response, publicly pushed for the nuclear deal before its approval last year. He did so by penning op-eds, writing to high-level officials and even testifying before Congress. With the deal in place, Boeing has since moved forward on...

Goldwater’s old estate, known as Be-nun-i-kin, Navajo for “house on top of the hill.” But it is the prospect of Mr. Trump’s gathering with members of the Navajo Nation that is creating the most intrigue around the trip of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. His repeated use of the name “Pocahontas” to deride Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, has stirred a debate among Native Americans about how they...

    American Indians will be silent no more. They’re calling out Elizabeth Warren and her preposterous claim that she’s “Native American.” The uber-liberal Massachusetts senator claims she’s an Indian – 1/32 Cherokee to be exact. She’s never provided any documentation or proof of that ancestry. She’s not a member of any band of Cherokee, nor could she be. Still, she’s used the nonsense claim to her political and professional advantage. In the 1990s, while Warren was teaching at Harvard, she was granted tenure partly because of her claim of “Indian roots” and the college’s effort to boost their diversity hiring record....

    The mainstream media seems to be unaware that Warren has been the subject of ridicule for more than four years, when she first advanced the false claims of Native American heritage publicly while on the campaign trail in her race for the U.S. Senate seat then held by Sen.

Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” and intends to keep using the term, along with “Goofy Elizabeth,” to describe the far-left senator from Massachusetts. Trump offered an apology on Saturday at a Tampa campaign rally attended by 7,000. “I’ll apologize to...

    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. Land records from Warren’s native Oklahoma City show the Harvard professor was active in the often topsy-turvy real estate market in the 1990s, including: • Purchasing a foreclosed home at 2725...

That is, of course, unless you are the U.S. Treasury Department, which according to its recently released report on marketplace lending worries that technology will make loan underwriting too good. That isn't a typo; the Treasury is worried that better underwriting may be "unfair" because it can disadvantage borrowers who are currently mischaracterized as low risk by making them pay higher (that is to say, correct) rates....

We could naturalize Fidel Castro, to become Bernie's Vice-President. Havana could become our new national capital; the Cuban flag would have to be altered a bit to show the US as a minor province. Henry Kissinger would be the Secretary of State. (Hillary would have liked that.) George Soros' head could be...

    The Washington Post released a poll on Thursday, which showed that 90% of Native Americans do not take offense to the word, Redskins. The sports media responded to this poll by apologizing for decades of fear-mongering, race-baiting, and trying to make a national crisis out of something that is not even a crisis in the Indian community. Just kidding. They freaked out. On ESPN’s Around the Horn, host Tony Reali asked his panel whether or not the fact that the supposedly offended Native Americans, being not so offended, changed their views on the issue? Spoiler alert: it didn’t:

    GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (d-ma) as "Pocahontas" in an interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, she wrote in a piece published Saturday. Trump told Dowd that he had not been asked by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) in his meeting with him last week to tone down his rhetoric directed at women. Dowd also asked him if he had been criticized by Republicans for his Twitter feud with Warren. "You mean Pocahontas?” Trump shot back. Trump and Warren have engaged in a long battle on Twitter, trading barbs over his rhetoric toward...

    Joe Biden took months to decide he wouldn’t run for president — but he was sold on Elizabeth Warren as his running mate from the start, people familiar with the situation told POLITICO. And he still thinks the Massachusetts firebrand would be Hillary Clinton’s best choice to replace him as the nation’s No. 2 in January 2017. Biden, a stalwart Democrat who has veered leftward in recent years — but, as a centrist senator, voted to scuttle the Glass-Steagall prohibitions on banks engaging in speculative investments — favored Warren because he needed a partner to capture the wave of anti-bank,...

    Elizabeth Warren has been attacking Trump lately: [Excerpt] The night of Donald Trump’s big Indiana Republican primary win, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was ready. She tore loose with a series of late-night anti-Trump tweets in which she accused him of racism, sexism, xenophobia, narcissism and a host of other faults. Two weeks earlier, after being asked about another Warren tweet storm in which she accused him of being "a loser," Trump fired a warning shot across Warren's bow. "Who's that, the Indian? You mean the Indian," he responded, referring to a well-known political controversy over Warren claiming Indian heritage. The...

    Count Hillary Clinton as one who appreciated Elizabeth Warren's late-night Twitter tirade against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. "I'm going to fight my heart out to make sure@realDonaldTrump’s toxic stew of hatred & insecurity never reaches the White House," Warren tweeted Tuesday night, after Trump assumed the mantle of the party heading into November. By Wednesday afternoon, Clinton's main Twitter account had retweeted the message, along with sharing several anti-Trump messages of its own and retweeting videos from another account related to the campaign.
