Senator Warren and her tenuous relationship with the truth

By tenuous I mean non-existent 

But did you know that Pocahontas and two of her comrades once conducted a fake study to prove that exorbitant healthcare bills drive most bankruptcies? And that former President Barack Obama later used her phony study to advocate for Obamacare.

“[W]e must also address the crushing cost of health care. This is a cost that now causes a bankruptcy in America every 30 seconds. By the end of the year, it could cause 1.5 million Americans to lose their homes,” the then-president said during his 2009 address to Congress.

For a guy who kvetches so frequently about the lack of “a common baseline of facts,” you’d think he’d have known better.

As noted by Paul Mirengoff over at PJ Media, Warren’s study contained a plethora of problems, including the fact that it “grossly inflated the number of bankruptcies having a ‘medical cause’ … by including all cases of ‘uncontrolled gambling,’ ‘alcohol or drug addiction,’ and ‘birth/addition of a new family member’ and by including cases where relatively modest medical bills acted in combination with other debts.”

In fairness to Senator Lies A Lot many lies were told by advocates of Obamacare, but she played a special role with her ginned up “study”

Megan McArdle at The Washington Post:

Carlos Dobkin, Amy Finkelstein, Raymond Kluender and Matthew J. Notowidigdo did what’s called an “event study.” Instead of looking at bankruptcies to see how many involved medical bills, they started with the illness, and asked how much more likely people were to declare bankruptcy after they got sick. That’s a much better way to tease out causation than asking whether someone who just went through a financially ruinous divorce also owed his or her dermatologist thousands of dollars.

The answer they came up with will surprise even critics of Warren et al.: The fraction of bankruptcies caused by medical events is just 4 percent. And even among those bankruptcies, it seems that medical bills may be less of a problem than the other things associated with an illness, such as lost labor income.

In other words: Medical bankruptcy probably wasn’t nearly as big a problem as people thought when we were passing our giant new health-care program. And to the extent that it was a problem, Obamacare probably didn’t do much to fix it.

None of this should surprise anyone. Senator Warren is a leftist, leftists do not care one whit about truth or honesty. Leftists do not value such things. All they value is achieving their end goals. Socialized medicine has long been one of their most lofty aims, so, lying to reach it? No biggie to them

Noted faker loves how tax cuts helps working people, then bashes tax cuts

Elizabeth Warren is a professional buffoon folks, do not try this at home

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is “delighted” to hear that an energy company in her home state of Massachusetts will lower rates for customers due to the Republican tax overhaul that she and fellow Democrats opposed.

Fox News host Bret Baier asked the senator during an interview Wednesday if she would support repealing the tax law, passed by a Republican-controlled Congress and signed by President Trump late last year, if Democrats take over as the majority party.

Baier then mentioned that Eversource is planning millions of dollars of rate cuts for customers in response to a reduced corporate tax rate.

“And good for them. I’m delighted to hear that,” Warren, who was being interviewed alongside Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said.

See! Tax cuts good, no wait, tax cuts bad, no, wait, er…………

But her adulation ended there.

“It is $1.5 trillion the Republicans gave away to billionaires and to giant corporations,” Warren added. “And they expect hardworking families to just pick up the ticket on that. I want those breaks to go directly to hardworking families. Not to a bunch of rich folks.”

A number of other companies across the U.S. have announced pay hikes and bonuses for employees due to the Republican tax plan, and Eversource is not the only utility to promise rate reductions.

Of course the new tax law gives nothing to anyone, It does allow people and companies, small and large to keep more of their money, but does not give away money. But facts are hard when you are trying to divide people and make them hate corporations right Senator Warren? That is OK do not let facts interfere with your addiction to Marxist ideology

Plagiarist Gaffe Machine Meets With Plagiarist Race Fraudster As Wicked Witch Of Benghazi Plummets In Polls

Biden Holds Meeting With Elizabeth Warren – The Hill

.

.
Vice President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Washington, D.C.’s Naval Observatory on Saturday for a confidential talk with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), CNN reported.

Biden’s return to the District comes amid buzz he is seriously weighing a 2016 Oval Office bid.

CNN said that two sources confirmed the pair’s face-to-face, the biggest indicator yet that Biden is seriously tempted by an Oval Office bid next year.

“The vice president traveled last minute to Washington, D.C. for a private meeting and will be returning to Delaware,” an aide told CNN. Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff declined further comment on the alleged rendezvous.

CNN initially reported Saturday that Biden arrived in Washington around 11 a.m. and had planned on returning home to Wilmington, Del., later in the weekend.

Warren, a beloved figure in progressive circles, has resisted calls to mount her own presidential candidacy. She reportedly told WBZ radio in Boston on Friday that she considers the 2016 Democratic primary up for grabs.

“I don’t think anyone has been anointed,” said Warren, who has not yet endorsed a candidate.

Hillary Clinton, the heavy favorite for the party’s nomination, is currently grappling with sinking poll numbers amid voter concerns that she is neither a transparent nor trustworthy candidate.

Biden, 72, began mulling a third White House run following the death of his son Beau Biden in late May after a battle with brain cancer.

The vice president is widely expected to make a final decision next month. His entrance into the 2016 campaign would expand the Democratic field to six contenders.

Multiple national polls show Biden would have significant support from Democratic voters should he pursue the presidency next election cycle.

He previously ran for president in 1988 and 2008, both times dropping out early in the Democratic primary process.

Elizabeth Warren and “Nice” Facism

William Teach looks at, and destroys, Elizabeth Warren’s 11 commandments

Progressives, who Jonah Goldberg referred to as “nice fascists” in his book Liberal Fascism, have been gaga for Elizabeth Warren from the first. They willing ignored her blatant lies about being a Native American, because of racial politics. They excuse her fundraising from big wig 1%ers. She pushes a progressive populism, while being one of the very rich who work the system she pro-ports to despise (remember that at the end). Search “hypocrite” and you’ll find more than enough to take on her 11 Commandments. But, there is no doubt that the Nutroots, the hardcore Progressive activists, want her to run for President in 2016. Hence, here we go, per National Journal

You have to go read the whole thing, here are some highlights with Teach’s responses

  • “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality (in other words, Government should fully control it)
  • “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.” (and putting the low wage workers on the unemployment line. Oh, say, has Liz started paying her interns yet? 
  • “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!” (hooray, no one has to pay $9 a month for birth control pills! Screw your religious freedom)  

I know most folks are assuming that Hillary will be the Democratic nominee in 2016, just like that was assumed in 2008. But Warren is a real threat to Queen Hillary, and, she is just as far Left, if not more s that Hillary is. Do not be surprised if Warren becomes Obama version 2.0

Remember kids, Liberals are free to lie. But if you expose their lies, then you are a hater!

Oh Elizabeth Warren, you fake Cherokee you

In her new book, Elizabeth Warren blames the controversy over her fake Cherokee ancestry on “some blogger,” and since William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection was particularly merciless in exposing her lies, he’s giving credit where credit is due:

In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee. Read Elizabeth Warren Wiki, and these posts responding to the claims in her book:

Here is some advice for Warren. She might wish to heed my words, even though I am just “some blogger”. Dear Ms. Warren If you do not wish to be called out for lying, then do not tell lies. The days when political hacks like you could just spew lies without fear of being exposed are no more. Mainly because if the main stream media does not do their job, as they usually do not, then “some blogger” will do some checking. In short Ms.  Warren, there is there is one way to avoid such inconveniences in the future, it is called honesty. Try that and quit whining.
