    A Michigan teen accused of fatally stabbing a classmate was “smiling and laughing” during the attack, according to reports. Two dozen students watched in horror as Tanaya Lewis, 17, killed Danyna Gibson, 16, with a kitchen knife in a classroom Wednesday at Fitzgerald High School in Warren, Mich., Fox 2 Detroit reported Friday. “Witnesses said the defendant was smiling and laughing as she was chasing the victim,” Detective Donald Seidel of the Warren Police Department told a judge Friday, WXYZ-TV reported Saturday. One blow penetrated Danyna’s heart, the station reported. Prosecutors said Lewis screamed, “I’m going to kill her” as...

    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...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal critics. But she does not want to boot him out of office, yet. Ahead of November's critical midterm elections, billionaire former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer has piled more than $20 million into his campaign to impeach the president. Asked Thursday evening if she agreed with the mega-donor's effort, Warren answered, "Nope." The Massachusetts Democrat said she wanted to see special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation come to a close before she draws a conclusion. The former FBI director is looking into Russian efforts to influence the 2016...

    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...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren called on White House officials Thursday to remove President Trump from office as unfit to handle the job. The Massachusetts Democrat and progressive hero, often touted as a 2020 presidential hopeful, said Wednesday’s op-ed in the New York Times by an anonymous White House official justifies forcing out Mr. Trump under the constitutional provisions for an incapacitated president. “If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment,” she told CNN in an interview. Shortly after the CNN interview, Ms. Warren sent...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, seizing on an explosive op-ed from an anonymous administration official, said Thursday that it's time to use constitutional powers to remove President Donald Trump office if top officials don't think he can do the job. "If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment," Warren told CNN. "The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can't do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President -- take...

    Monday at a Labor Day breakfast in Boston, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said Democrats “will be there” for workers if they take back the House and Senate in the midterm elections.

    **SNIP** The Globe examined hundreds of documents, many of them never before available, and reached out to all 52 of the law professors who are still living and were eligible to be in that Pound Hall room at Harvard Law School. Some are Warren’s allies. Others are not. Thirty-one agreed to talk to the Globe — including the law professor who was, at the time, in charge of recruiting minority faculty. Most said they were unaware of her claims to Native American heritage and all but one of the 31 said those claims were not discussed as part of her...

    Illegal immigration must be combated with resolve. We cannot allow the issue to be framed by amnesty advocates as a referendum on Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, with its famous line, “Give me your tired, your poor ...” As again evidenced last week with the alleged murder of Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of an undocumented immigrant, there are violent criminals among the many who cross the border. No state is immune from crimes committed by illegal immigrants, certainly not Massachusetts. Yesterday brought news that a man was arrested in Texas and is...

    President Trump went after Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray at a dinner for the state’s Republican Party on Friday evening, linking him to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). Trump's comments came while he backed Republican Mike DeWine, a former U.S. senator and currently Ohio’s attorney general, who is running against Cordray in a race that the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates as a “toss up.” “So Mike [DeWine]’s running against a far-left candidate, and you know he was groomed by Pocahontas. The legendary Pocahontas…He was groomed by Elizabeth Warren. His name is Cordray, and he’s trouble,” Trump said in Columbus,...

    It is no secret that there is no ideology more dangerous for women and children than progressivism and this week Sen. Liz Warren confirmed it. Warren — viewed as a likely 2020 Democratic presidential contender — was asked on CNN’s “New Day” about toughening immigration laws after 20-year-old Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts’ brutal murder. An alleged illegal immigrant has been arrested. “I’m so sorry for the family and I know this is hard, not only for the family but for the people in her community, the people throughout Iowa,” Warren said about Tibbetts. “But, one of the things we...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) took aim at President Trump's immigration policies on Wednesday, saying that his administration should focus on "people who pose a real threat." Warren's comments came in response to a question from CNN host John Berman who asked for her reaction about the death of 20-year-old Iowa college student Mollie Tibbets. The man charged with murdering Tibbets has been suspected of being in the U.S. illegally by Trump and his administration, though his attorney filed a court document on Wednesday saying that he was working in the U.S. legally. In the court document, attorney Allen Richards accused...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren protested the treatment of illegal immigrants following the murder of Mollie Tibbetts during an interview with CNN on Wednesday. “The person who allegedly murdered her [Tibbetts] is an undocumented immigrant. Mike Pence and the president have suggested the laws need to be stronger so people like this were not in the country,” CNN’s John Berman told Warren. The Senator very quickly expressed her condolences to the Tibbetts family before pivoting to a more broad topic on how the United States treats illegal immigrants. “Last month, I went down to the border, and I saw where children...

  • Elizabeth Warren's Accountable Capitalism Act would force companies to look beyond shareholders

    WSJ ^ | August 15, 2018 | Brittany De Lea
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, introduced legislation on Wednesday that intends to completely upend the idea that companies are only accountable to shareholders. The Accountable Capitalism Act, as the measure is called, would require corporations with more than $1 billion in annual revenue to get a federal charter of corporate citizenship, which would give it fiduciary responsibilities beyond maximizing shareholder value. As noted by Vox, the senator essentially wants to require corporations to have the same responsibilities under the social contract as the average U.S. citizen. clip A host of experts, however, are taking issue with some of...

    Because Donald Trump is, well, Donald Trump, a lot of attention has been paid to his hostile takeover of the Republican Party -- and how he continues to consolidate that power. What that focus on how Trump killed the old -- and by that we mean the 2012 -- version of the Republican Party misses is how much the Democratic Party has evolved -- and is evolving -- in its own way. Like Republicans, that change sped up -- rapidly -- in 2016. It was led by an unlikely figure -- Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. To say Sanders was...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will introduce legislation Wednesday aimed at making the nation's largest companies accountable to employees and their local communities, not just shareholders. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Warren said companies in the late 20th Century started operating in a way that made them slaves to shareholders. "That shift has had a tremendous effect on the economy," she wrote. "In the early 1980s, large American companies sent less than half their earnings to shareholders, spending the rest on their employees and other priorities." "But between 2007 and 2016, large American companies dedicated 93% of their...

    Media outlets this week are all over a new Pew study that finds, the headlines promise, that President Trump's support is not quite as broad and not quite as happy as his stunningly stable approval rating might suggest. But what's striking from the numbers, at least as far as I can see, is not how much support Trump has lost but how, given the daily barrage of tweets and countertweets; ugly chants and ugly corruption trials (his campaign chairman); intense criticism in the media; all-out war in Congress; and foreign policy flubs and domestic failures, much remains firm, and how...
