  • Jennifer Lawrence on playing a politician in a film: 'I could play Sen. Warren as Pocahontas'

    The Hill ^ | February 16, 2018 | Judy Kurtz
    She’s played everyone from “Hunger Games” protagonist Katniss Everdeen, to a jealous wife in “American Hustle,” to a ballerina-turned-Russian spy in her latest film, but Jennifer Lawrence says her next role could be portraying a real-life potential 2020 contender. When asked which political character she’d want to play, Lawrence told ITK, “I could play Sen. [Elizabeth] Warren as Pocahontas.” The quip was an apparent reference to a slur lobbed at the Massachusetts Democrat by President Trump. The commander in chief has called Warren — who claims partial Native American heritage — “Pocahontas” before, most recently at a November event honoring...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren addressed claims of her Native American heritage at an American Indian policy summit on Wednesday. On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that Warren was conspicuously not scheduled to speak at the Tribal Nations Policy Summit in Washington, DC, despite being the only Senator to claim a Native American heritage. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren Absent From Tribal Nations Policy Summit) Warren apparently changed her mind about appearing at the summit and made a surprise appearance on Wednesday, addressing allegations that she has lied about her ancestry. Cherokee genealogists have traced Warren’s family tree and found no evidence to support...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) is hosting a "Nevertheless, She Persisted" telephone town hall on Wednesday to commemorate the one-year anniversary of her being formally silenced on the Senate floor. . . . The senator has made vast sums of money selling merchandise featuring the phrase, and she has used the phrase frequently in speeches.

    Thanks to people like Liz Warren, Washington, D.C., is a sanctuary city for perverts. One month ago, at the height of the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, Warren defiantly told her own story of harassment and declared, “Me too.” Now that her Senate bestie Al Franken has been caught in a perv-pinch, it’s more like, “Me, who?” Warren was fired up in October, recalling the advances of her assailant, a former senior faculty colleague. “He slammed the door and lunged for me,” the senator said. “It was like a bad cartoon. He’s chasing me around the desk, trying to get his...

    Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked Rev. Al Sharpton and a mostly black crowd for an “amen” during a speech she was giving at a National Action Network conference Thursday. . . . “So when the Trump administration and the Republicans take steps to undermine equal rights, to roll back economic opportunity or to subvert equal justice under law, then we’re going to call them out and we’re going to fight back every single time,” Warren declared, before asking “Can I have an amen on that?”
  • Liz Warren: Trump's EPA pick 'has the nerve' to debate climate science

    The Washington Examiner ^ | February 16, 2017 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Thursday criticized President Trump's nominee to lead the EPA for having "the nerve" to say the science behind climate change is still up for debate. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is expected to be confirmed Friday afternoon to lead the EPA, despite Warren's argument that he is a climate change denier who would dismantle the EPA's ability to mitigate the human activity that she said is warming up the plane

    The Federalist ^ | 2/9/17 | David Harsanyi
    First of all, despite the martyr act, no one has the power to “silence” Sen. Elizabeth Warren — and that’s a good thing. On the other hand, the impulse to silence Warren is completely rational, and it has nothing to do with her gender, ancestry, or ideology. It has everything to do with her sanctimonious lecturing, habitual dishonesty, and disregard of “norms.” She’s been a bully her entire career.But when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pulled Rule 19, which prohibits all members from taking to the floor and “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to...

    Former baseball star Curt Schilling is reportedly planning to run for Senate in Massachusetts against incumbent Elizabeth Warren, and he’s wasting no time attacking his would-be opponent. Warren, a favorite politician among the liberal activists, represents “everything we hate about politics,” the former Red Sox pitcher said during an radio interview on the Larry O’Connor show. Schilling thinks he could be successful against Warren because of the “disconnect” between the politics of average voters in Massachusetts and the senator’s left-wing beliefs. “As I talk about potentially running for Senate and running against ‘Lieawatha,’ I’ve talked about the fact that the...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/27/16 | Jim Hoft
    At a recent press briefing where Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas, a freelance journalist named Nicole Robertson claimed she found the comment offensive. Like Elizabeth Warren, Robertson claims to be a Native American. You would think she’d be more offended by Elizabeth Warren lying about such a thing than Trump calling her out for it. Furthermore, Warren has been shooting her mouth off and insulting Trump for weeks now. What is he supposed to do, just take it and not push back at all? This is just further proof that the media is made up almost entirely of...
  • Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears

    Breitbart ^ | 8 May 2012 | Michael Patrick Leahy
    For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. After researching her story, it is obvious that her “family lore” is just fiction. Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee–the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837. These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in...

    Elizabeth Warren as a comic-book hero? Meet Wonder Squaw! It’s hard to imagine, but somebody is coming out with a 24-page comic book about her rise from “modest means to the Massachusetts Senate.” Funny, I thought she was in the U.S. Senate, and as for her “modest means” – yeah, right, and did she ever tell you about those high cheekbones of hers? But let’s play along. “Look, over by Wall Street – I mean Wall Trail. It’s a Native American! It’s an Okie! It’s… Wonder Squaw! Yes, it’s Elizabeth Warren, strange visitor from another planet (Oklahoma) who came to...

    Let the movement begin. Starting today, all good progressives should write it on their Starbucks latte cups: Run Liz Run. And don’t stop there. Facebook profile pics, Twitter avatars, the dirty windows of your Priuses, Subarus and Range Rovers — even the Burberry sweater your Maltese named “Chloe” wears — take a Sharpie to that Shar-Pei and scrawl “Run Liz Run.” Let’s “start the conversation,” as well-meaning liberals love to say. Please. Let’s start the “Liz Warren for President” conversation. Now. GOP challengers can begin and end that conversation with an easy concept: “Hypocrisy.”

    Hillary Clinton apparently learned nothing from her time as a junior staff attorney on the House Judiciary Committee during Watergate. Lesson One: It’s not the crime, it’s the coverup. Forty-odd years later, Clinton’s too-clever-by-half effort to avoid creating any damning email trail during her time in Foggy Bottom has emerged as the petard on which her much-ballyhooed 2016 Democratic front-runner status could be hoisted.

    Liberals all over America are just giddy over the way newly elected Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren blasted bank regulators in a Senate hearing this week. They are singing her praises as the champion of the consumer. The Huffington Post reported on her performance with the headline, “Elizabeth Warren Embarrasses Bank Regulators at First Hearing.” A YouTube video was also posted with the same title. The 4 minute video shows Senator Warren confronting top bank regulators from the FDIC, SEC, OCC, CFTC, Fed, and Treasury. The video is shown below. Another site, Gawker.com, reported the same story with the headline, “Elizabeth...

    Elizabeth Warren still is not Cherokee. She never was. Her family lore is grossly exaggerated, in all likelihood by Warren herself not her parents. Yet whenever anyone questions this family lore, Warren acts like it is an attack on her family, thereby shutting down challenges to the stories. Warren relies on family lore because it’s hard to disprove what she claims she was told. It’s why Warren digs in deeper with her family lore stories as the campaign goes on. She thinks she has found a safe place. Yet there is plenty of evidence that the story about her parents...

    Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren says she was “appalled” at a video that appeared to show supporters of U.S. Sen. Scott Brown — including at least one staffer — performing war whoops and tomahawk chops, saying if one of her campaign workers did such a thing there would be “serious consequences.” Asked whether she was appalled as an American Indian, Warren told reporters: “I am appalled as an American.” “I think everyone knew what he was up to,” said Warren, who has been dogged by a growing scandal over her unsupported claims of Cherokee heritage and her professional claims of minority...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 9/24/12 | William Jacobson
    Warren attempted to deny her role, and referred to a Boston Globe article, but the Globe article supports Brown’s account. The Globe article indicated the representation was for a period of three years and Warren was paid $212,000. The case resulted in a Supreme Court victory for Travelers arising out of a bankruptcy case in New York. Whatever the political implications of the exchange, Warren’s representation of Travelers raises another big potential problem for Warren. Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in...

    Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren, who has made her stated desire for a “level playing field” the cornerstone of her Senatorial campaign, once said she longed to win a contest on the basis of her beauty, physical attributes, and other criteria “unrelated to smarts” — including “knowing someone who can fix the outcome.”
