  • Trump's "Pocahontas" power play

    Axios ^ | October 16, 2018 | Jonathan Swan
    President Trump loves nothing more than when his opponents try to litigate his insults, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is trying to do with "Pocahontas," a staple riff at his rallies. The big picture: Trump's never more comfortable than on this terrain, and "Pocahontas" is one of his all-time favorites, according to aides. • But he also is especially proud of "Da Nang Dick" Blumenthal, for the exaggerated military record of the Democratic senator from Connecticut. • Trump also regularly hits "Sleepy Joe" Biden these days. • In Trump’s mind, his 2016 nicknames weren’t a sideshow, but were one of...
  • Warren accuses Trump of ‘creepy’ comments about her DNA test

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested President Donald Trump’s comment about him personally administering a DNA test to her to prove her Native American heritage is “creepy.” She tweeted Monday that the president makes “creepy physical threats” about women who scare him, including her. “He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself,” the Massachusetts Democrat responded on Twitter after Trump made the comment during an appearance in Georgia. “It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work.”(continued)
  • Warren takes aim at Dems' dilemma: How to run against Trump

    WTHI-TV ^ | October 16, 2018 | CNN Wire
    Elizabeth Warren's DNA test identifying her distant Native American ancestry is at its root a first stab at a question all 2020 Democratic hopefuls must answer: How do they run against a foe as menacing as Donald Trump? It is a mark of how the President has dragged campaign politics into a surreal era that what was seen as a de-facto declaration of a coming White House bid by a major rival involved an investigation into her own genetic make-up. The President has long mocked Warren for claiming she has a Native American connection and said he would love to...
  • Elizabeth Warren’s new, tantalizing claim about Kavanaugh shows what utter madness this is

    The Washington Post ^ | October 5, 2018 | Greg Sargent
    One of the most infuriating aspects of this whole Kavanaugh saga is the degree to which we are flying blind about some of the most fundamental points of disagreement at its core. Making this even worse, it doesn’t have to be this way. On the Senate floor late Thursday, Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made a new and tantalizing claim about what’s in the FBI documents on Brett M. Kavanaugh that all senators have now reviewed. Senators are severely limited in what they can say about these documents, which are summaries of the interviews that the FBI conducted as part of their...

    One of the country's most popular Republican governors on Thursday called for an independent investigation into the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said the Senate should hold off on a vote. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker made the comments as Professor Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted here. "The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation," Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker tweeted. "There should be no vote in the Senate." Baker, who faces re-election this November, is one of only a few Republican governors,...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questioned embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's attitude toward his behavior in high school on Tuesday after a clip of him addressing his time at Georgetown Preparatory School circulated on social media. "I can't imagine any parent accepting this view," Warren tweeted. "Is this really what America wants in its next Supreme Court Justice?" During a 2015 speech at Columbus Law School at the Catholic University of America, Kavanaugh joked about his high school experience, saying, “What happens at Georgetown Prep, stays at Georgetown Prep.” In the snippet, first unearthed by MSNBC, Kavanaugh was referring to...

    The Washington Times ^ | September 10, 2018 | Valerie Richardson
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed the Trump administration after it threw a $1 billion casino project into doubt by ruling the federal government could not take land into trust for a Massachusetts tribe, an issue she has championed as she fights criticism over her disputed claims of Cherokee ancestry. The Massachusetts Democrat vowed to move forward with legislation after the Bureau of Indian Affairs admitted defeat Friday in its two-year search for a legal avenue to take 320 acres into trust on behalf of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. The Interior Department agreed in 2015 to hold land in trust for the...

    American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent. Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

    The big difference in President Donald Trump's re-election campaign in 2020 could be the level of support he receives from the black community. And, the man most despised by the black community could become the most pro-black president of the modern era. A Rasmussen poll released last week indicates growing support for Trump among blacks. A big part of that is economics. For the first time ever, black unemployment has fallen below six percent. That means record numbers of black men, women, and youth are employed. Trump has created opportunities where for decades, the Democrats have offered only unfulfilled promises....

    Vox ^ | August 11, 2018 | Emily Stewart
    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post. He...

    A sneak peek at the Times’s news analysis from Nov. 4, 2020. Nov. 4, 2020 In the end, a bitterly fought election came down to the old political aphorism, popularized during Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 run against George H.W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” This time, however, it was the Republican incumbent, not his Democratic challenger, who benefited from that truism. Donald J. Trump has been decisively re-elected as president of the United States, winning every state he carried in 2016 and adding Nevada, even as he once again failed, albeit narrowly, to gain a majority of the popular vote....

    President Donald Trump escalated a familiar attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren Thursday night, mocking the Massachusetts Democrat and leading potential 2020 rival for her claim of Native American heritage. He revived his nickname for her — "the fake Pocahontas" — and told the crowd at his Montana campaign rally that should the two find themselves on a debate stage, he would challenge her to submit to genetic testing to prove that she has Native American ancestors. "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're...

    President Donald Trump's controversial tactics at the southern border have managed to draw the ire of a powerful neighbor to the north - the Kennedys. Ethel Kennedy and her brood have been vocal about their disdain for the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy for weeks now, with Ethel herself even announcing that she would be fasting in protest. And on the eve of Fourth of July the family launched a more direct attack on the administration - and First Lady Melania Trump in particular - by breaking out some paint and and green jackets, on which they each wrote: 'I...

    A damning report just came out regarding the former State Senate President in Massachusetts. The report details how the Senate President knew about abhorrent behavior from his husband and did little to nothing to stop it. This includes giving his husband complete access to his emails and giving advice on committee chairmanships. All while his husband was trying to make sex tapes with other State Senators and a desire to 'roofie' them. "In the report, Hefner allegedly talks about making a sex tape with another senator in one instance, and in another instance, attempted to convince a Cambridge police officer...

    There has been much talk lately of a huge blue wave coming our way in November. One of those talking points is that Democrats keep winning special elections, and that part is true as since Jan 2017 to today the Democrats have won over many key special elections nationwide. However it looks like we might buck that trend in Massachusetts, check out this local State Representative Race happening in Attleboro. The election is on April 3rd and the GOP candidate is up slightly. The point is, if the GOP can win in Massachusetts - this blue trend might not really...

    So while this article itself is old, the issue is not. In the Mass Legislature HB 388 is a real bill that would give illegal immigrants the right to vote in local elections. Here are the Democrats listed as Co-Sponsors - there are probably more Democrats that support this bill but are not co-sponsors. Rep. Byron Rushing [D] Rep. Denise Provost [D] Rep.

    To no surprise to anyone multiple news sites are reporting that the Democrat State Senate leadership is failing in their duties to execute an impartial and fair investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct allegation that happened on and around Beacon Hill. Some of the alleged victims to the husband of Senate President Rosenburg think that the system and investigation is rigged to return the Senate President to power. This is shocking. Here is a quote: “There’s no way I would come forward,” Abraham quoted one of them as saying. “This is an investigation to clear Stan Rosenberg’s name. It’s not...

    He’s not saying Moore should go “if” the sexual assault allegations are true. He’s telling him to get out now. Mitt Romney called on Roy Moore to step aside from the Alabama Senate race Friday, becoming one of the only Republican politicians to say, unequivocally, that Moore should go in light of accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. (TWEET-AT-LINK) On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that four women said Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. The most serious case involves Leigh Corfman, who was 14...
