For those of you who read my contributions on a regular basis, you might think I hate all Leftists. Nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t hate anyone, no matter how horribly they treat me. I may mock the Left…a lot…I mean, a lot lot…okay, I do mock the Left whenever I can, but that’s not the same thing as hating them.
Especially when they provide such great entertainment in the form of Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Out of all the Leftists I’ve observed, Senator Warren is my favorite, but it’s not because I agree with her or admire her rise from obscure Harvard professor and potential Native American to US Senator. I love her because she is so convinced she’s right that she doesn’t bother to see if she’s actually right.
Take the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, for example. That regulatory agency was the brainchild of Senator Warren’s. The CFPB was established to regulate the largest banks, a task that was already being done by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, but not to the liking of people like Senator Warren. You see, the OCC was found to have not done its jobs very well (or at least not well enough to punish the big banks for making money). So, instead of trying to fix the OCC’s problems, the big brains in Washington decided to double down.
Without getting too far into the weeds about the mortgage industry, let me just say it worked as well as giving Bill Clinton a key to the Playboy Mansion as a means to help his marital fidelity.
But this week, Senator Warren turned the cluelessness to 11.
It started with Hillary Clinton appearing to sew up the Democrat nomination for President. As one might expect, people who sat on the sidelines started coming out of the woodwork to endorse her. One of those sideliners was…Senator Elizabeth Warren. On the surface, this makes sense (or at least however much sense a Leftist supporting another Leftist can have).
And now, as the late Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story.
Senator Warren has been an outspoken critic of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. This is consistent with her self-appointed image as a staunch warrior against Wall Street greed, and Trump is the perfect foil. This war of words has exploded on Twitter, where Senator Warren is known to write several posts about Trump, decrying his connections to Wall Street. In fact, Senator Warren Tweeted the following on June 9th:
Government should be accountable to the people, not Wall Street lobbyists, deep-pocketed donors, and secretive Super PACs.
Of course, it should be pointed out to Senator Warren that Hillary Clinton has pretty close ties to…Wall Street, namely Goldman Sachs. You remember Goldman Sachs, right? The company where the current Administration took a lot of people and ideas from on the economy? Yeah, and that worked so well, didn’t it?
But wait! There’s more! The very next day after her Tweet, a news story broke based on emails from the State Department showing a major donor to The Clinton Foundation received a spot on a government intelligence board…without having any field experience in intelligence. And who sought to keep that information under wraps?
The same Hillary Clinton who just secured Elizabeth Warren’s endorsement.
The same Elizabeth Warren who blasted “Wall Street lobbyists, deep-pocketed donors, and secretive Super PACs”.
The same Elizabeth Warren who accepted funds from Leftist billionaire and economic terrorist George Soros.
The same George Soros who gave $6 million to a pro-Hillary Super PAC.
The same George Soros who funds MoveOn.org, a website that just sent out an email about Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland…using Elizabeth Warren’s name and signature.
So, I guess Senator Warren forgot about her Tweet…from yesterday. In her defense, she was working so hard to defend the little guy that it must have slipped her mind!
And if you believe that, I have a bridge I’d love to sell you.
And now you know why Elizabeth Warren is my favorite Leftist. She can always be counted on for a great belly laugh as she tries to be serious about subjects she knows nothing about.
