    Elizabeth Warren Ad: Let's Be More Like China Michael Warren August 1, 2012 8:00 AM Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has a new ad running on Massachusetts television praising the Chinese government's investment in public works projects. The ad encourages the United States to follow the lead of the Asian Communist country and "do better." Watch the ad below, courtesy of the New York Sun: "We've got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America?” Warren says in the 30-second ad. “Our competitors are putting people to work,...

    U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts will speak in a headlining role at the Democratic National Convention, the Obama campaign said Monday. A rising star in the Democratic Party, Warren will speak in primetime just before former President Bill Clinton, who will enter President Obama’s name into the nomination. Of the prime speaking slot, Warren said, "It will be an honor to share the convention stage with President Clinton on Wednesday, and to talk about what is happening to America's families."

    Despite her national popularity among Democrats and an online petition with 1,247 signatures calling for her to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, Elizabeth Warren will not be headlining the gathering in Charlotte, N.C. Instead, the Harvard Law professor will speak ahead of former President Bill Clinton who will officially nominate President Barack Obama for a second term in office on Sept. 5 at the Time Warner Cable Arena. “Elizabeth Warren has championed the protection of the middle class throughout her life,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa in a statement. “At President Obama’s side,...

    Well, according to the Boston Globe, that's the latest rumor. The crowds at political conventions feast on partisan red meat, and they could end up with a bellyful when the Republicans and Democrats meet back to back beginning late next month. An Obama campaign official confirmed to the Globe Wednesday that US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is ­being considered as a possible keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. It would give the Massachusetts Democrat a national platform for her high-profile race against Senator Scott Brown, the same launch pad that ­Barack Obama used to vault ­into...

    Senator Scott Brown, who has earned kind words from Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino despite their differing political parties, treaded carefully Friday when asked during a chat about the mayor’s spat with Chick-fil-A over its opposition to gay marriage. “I disagree with what the CEO from Chick-fil-A said. I was glad he spoke further and said that his company does not discriminate,” Brown wrote from his South Boston campaign headquarters. Noting that Massachusetts has strong antidiscrimination laws that could prevent problems should the company decide to set up shop in Boston, Brown added, “If they move forward with the...

    Republican operatives in Washington are praising Scott Brown's latest campaign ad. The ad, a contrast spot being run by the Republican Massachusetts senator, shows that Brown's Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren, is to the left on economic issues of John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. Instead of being in the mainstream, Warren, along with President Barack Obama, is shown to be an opponent of free enterprise. The ad is called, "Let America Be America Again." "Devastating," says one Republican operative. "Long--but does a really good job of showing how radical the Obama/Warren view of...

Warren let loose her laugh line on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, responding to an ad Sen. Scott Brown is running that reveals how President Obama's "you didn't build that" line was eerily similar to an earlier Warren utterance. View the video here.

And we all know how that turned out. Despite the clear voice of the people, the president pulled out every trick imaginable to force that bill down our throats. That does not diminish Scott Brown's victory. But the truth is that because his original election was a special election, he had media attention and voter support from all over the country.

    Court decisions result in elections that have consequences. Who is going to pay a high price in November for last Thursday’s U.S. Supreme court’s ruling? Here in Massachusetts, it wasn’t a good day for Liz Warren’s ailing campaign. Not only does the decision re-energize Republicans and Tea Party patriots to rally around Sen. Scott Brown, but it also undercuts attempts of the millionaire house flipper to relate to the middle class. According to the Congressional Budget Office, “75 percent of individual mandate penalties will fall on those making less than $250,000.” That makes her endorsement of Obamacare and its 21...

Imagine if, many years later, it turned out that her claims to Native heritage were dubious and, when pressed for proof, she offered her “high cheekbones.” Oh, and she once contributed a recipe to a Native American cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” (that may even have been plagiarised).

In fact, her announcement was provocative rather than reassuring because it was oddly cavalier, suggesting she sees the whole controversy as no big deal. And her words were so surgically prepared, they seemed more tactically designed to make the press go away than help voters assess the situation....

    Elizabeth Warren challenged by Cherokee groupBy MJ LEE | 5/30/12 3:07 PM EDT Updated: 5/30/12 9:47 PM EDT A group of Cherokees have organized and launched a website disputing Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American heritage. Some 150 people purporting to be “concerned” members and descendants of three Cherokee tribes have put up a new website called “Cherokees Demand Truth From Elizabeth Warren.” The group is demanding that the Massachusetts Senate candidate come clean about her heritage – a topic that has dominated media coverage of Warren’s bid again incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown ever since it was revealed that...

    Last night, in an interview with the Boston Globe, Elizabeth Warren claimed that her parents were forced to elope because her father’s family objected to her mother’s Native American heritage: "In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues,’’ Warren said. “My father’s family so objected to my mother’s Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope. [emphasis added] Breitbart News has obtained a copy of what it believes to be Warrens' parents’ marriage certificate from Hughes County, Oklahoma, dated January 4, 1932. The marriage took place in Holdenville, Oklahoma, the county seat,...

    It's hard to figure who looks worse in this story, Elizabeth Warren or Harvard Law School's affirmative action policies. Warren is the former Harvard law professor whom President Barack Obama pegged to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Now she is running as a Democratic challenger to Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. Last month, the Boston Herald reported that in 1996, Harvard Law School touted the blond, blue-eyed Warren as proof that it hired "minority women." Then spokesman Mike Chmura wrote in The Harvard Crimson, "Elizabeth Warren is a Native American." In a 1997 Fordham University law review article, Chmura...

    As the lone Democrat seeking to challenge Elizabeth Warren in the Senate primary in Massachusetts, Marisa DeFranco has been ridiculed, admonished and, worst of all, ignored. But for the moment, Ms. DeFranco, an immigration lawyer with high energy and a scrappy band of volunteers, is enjoying a burst of momentum. She surprised party insiders by collecting enough valid signatures by the May 1 deadline — more than 10,000, gathered everywhere from town meetings to town dumps — to qualify for the Democratic primary on Sept. 6. If Ms. DeFranco clears one more hurdle — winning 15 percent of the delegate...

    Elizabeth Warren can no longer count the Harvard University administrator who listed her as "Native American" among her advocates in the unfolding scandal of her professed minority heritage. In the reaction to the Boston Globe's controversial article on Harvard's EEOC reports which listed Elizabeth Warren as a Native American, one particular revelation has gone largely unnoticed. Alan Ray, the former administrator who filed diversity reports during Warren's tenure, distances the university from any responsibility for erroneously listing her as a Native American.

    (Click on link to see the priceless video!)Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren, in a sequel to an awkward on-camera encounter this week about her claim to Native American heritage, bolted from a campaign event yesterday, refusing to answer a Herald reporter’s questions about the controversy. Moments after giving the keynote speech at the Young Democrats of Massachusetts convention, Warren and her handlers hustled out a rear exit of the SEIU 1199 offices in Dorchester. She climbed into the passenger side of an SUV and closed the door as a Herald reporter asked her a question and a photographer rolled video. “Professor...

    If there’s any politician that infuriates me more than a carpetbaggin’, recipe-stealing fake Indian, it’s one that unloads her imported BMW 528i just before announcing her candidacy, and then doesn’t even bother to pay the automobile excise tax on her campaign’s new Ford Escape. Yes, Comrade Warren, I’m talking about you. A BMW — how tenured Harvard Law is it? She’d owned it since early 2000, but it had to go. After all, she’s a “fight-ah,” as her new TV ad says. So adios BMW and hello used 2008 Ford — hybrid, of course — which is registered to her...
  • Filings raise more questions on Warren’s ethnic claims

    US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has said she was unaware that Harvard Law School had been promoting her purported Native American heritage until she read about it in a newspaper several weeks ago. But for at least six straight years during Warren’s tenure, Harvard University reported in federally mandated diversity statistics that it had a Native American woman in its senior ranks at the law school. According to both Harvard officials and federal guidelines, those statistics are almost always based on the way employees describe themselves. In addition, both Harvard’s guidelines and federal regulations for the statistics lay out a...
