Senate Republicans voted on Tuesday night to silence Elizabeth Warren for reading out a letter from the widow of Martin Luther King during a debate over Senator Jeff Sessions’ nomination for attorney general, eliciting furious response from Democrats.
Speaking on the Senate floor, Warren quoted from 30-year-old correspondence from Coretta Scott King relating to Sessions’ failed judicial nomination in the 1980s. It was part of a barnstorming speech by the Massachusetts Senator against Sessions’ suitability for the post and attacking his record on civil rights.
Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader, objected that Warren had broken Senate rules that prohibit one member impugning the conduct of another. Senators then voted 49-43 to uphold a ruling in McConnell’s favour.

Senator Walks with Hypocrisy
There are no depths of hypocrisy that a Democratic elected official will not sink. It has almost become expected of them to blast a Republican for doing the very exact thing that they are themselves doing it.
Look at the last few days with Democrats blasting Trump for his executive orders while they defended for eight years Mr. Obama for the same thing. However, to them somehow that was different. What is ironic is that those that are screaming the loudest have the most to hide.
A U.S. senator who took advantage of a loophole in ethics laws to avoid disclosing a $1.3 million credit line against her home is now warning that incomplete financial disclosures from cabinet nominees put the country at risk. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) warning came in the Washington Post, where she wrote that “it is critical that each nominee follows basic ethics rules to ensure that they will act for the benefit of all the American people.”
The STOCK Act, signed into law in 2012, mandated that all members of Congress disclose details of any mortgages on their personal residences in their annual filings.
Federal law requires lawmakers and other federal officials to annually disclose their financial assets and liabilities, including mortgages. In a form filed last week, Warren stated she and her husband, Bruce Mann, had no debt liabilities in 2014.
The legislation, however, does not mention home equity lines of credit, which banks offer as alternatives to a mortgage. The Warren aide said that the senator had yet to borrow on the line of credit, which allowed her to leave it off disclosure forms.
The exact terms of Warren’s deal with Bank of America such as her interest rate remain a mystery due to the lack of disclosure. Warren’s office did not return a request for comment on her decision to take out a line of credit
“Whether you are borrowing to pay down your credit card debt, play the stock market, or travel to Tahiti, borrowing against your home is still borrowing–period. It is not saving, it is not smart, it is not savvy. A second mortgage or a home equity line of credit is plain old Steal-from-Tomorrow debt.”
who will she ask forgiveness to for her blatant disregard for the law. We cannot call it an oversight, in her words she called a line of credit on a home as financial stupidity; so why did she do it? If she thinks that such things are not savvy, then there are no reasonable excuses as to why it existed in the first place.
Which brings us to the next item, if she knew it was not ‘savvy’ and then did it anywa
Democrat Elizabeth Warren has framed her Attacks and Opposition to the Appointment of Jeff Sessions around integrity and intellect, as if she’s a cut above other pols. In fact, she’s beneath even the sleaziest.
On top of fraudulently claiming minority Indian status without any documented ancestry, in 2012 the Harvard law professor was busted practicing law in Massachusetts without a state license.
Warren is the intellectual architect of the massively unpopular Dodd-Frank Act and ObamaCare, both of which are dragging down the U.S. recovery.
Worse, her client list includes the type of corporations that Ms. Populist has demonized as greedy polluters exploiters of the “little guy.”
Turns out working-class champion Warren in 1995 hired herself out as a legal gun for LTV Steel to help the conglomerate fight thousands of retired coal miners who wanted more health and pension benefits, the Boston Herald says. She pocketed a cool $10,000 in the case. Records show in 2009 she also defended insurance giant Travelers against asbestos victims.
The hypocrisy is bad enough. But Warren represented her corporate Wall Street clients without a law license. This also comes as a surprise to the law firm of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett, which listed her as “of counsel” in briefs filed on behalf of its corporate clients.
Asked about it on a Boston radio show, Warren admitted she’s not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
She’s been accused by several law professors of “repeated instances of scientific misconduct” in authoring papers that have provided the academic underpinnings for financial and health reforms. Peer reviews have dismissed her research as “deeply flawed.”
The Atlantic magazine, moreover, found a disturbing “pattern” of using bogus metrics to inflate the case for her leftist nostrums. Despite repeated requests, Warren has refused to provide the data she has used in her shabby research. In a word, she’s a hack.
she says that she’s a Cherokee Indian, even while admitting she has zero proof. “As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage,” Warren explained. “What kid would?”
twisted logic or blatant lies.Warren is a proven liar, hypocrite and fraud, and ought not darken the halls of the U.S. Senate as an expert witness let alone a member of that august body.
U.S. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren likes to talk about the problem with student loan debt.
She’s even hosting several events with Representative Elijah Cummings, a fellow Democrat, as part of a “Middle Class Prosperity Project,” which included a recent talk about “the student debt crisis” at the University of Massachusetts yesterday, CBS Boston reports.
Warren’s suggestion is to reduce the interest rate on student loans, and she introduced a bill about a year ago to do just that. But what Warren and her supporters don’t discuss is the absurdly high salaries for college professors, and she’s been among the top earners, according to Associated Press reports.
“ … Elizabeth Warren was paid $429,981 as a Harvard law professor from 2010 to 2011,” the AP reported in 2012, and “got nearly $134,000 in consulting fees on legal cases in 2010.”
Those earnings were on top of investments, book deals, and other income that places Warren squarely in the vilified One Percent.
That makes her recent comments to WBZ NewsRadio 1030 seem all the more hypocritical.
“This is about the kids who weren’t born into the families where mom and dad could just write a check out of petty cash,” Warren told the radio station, according to CBS Boston.
“These are kids who have worked hard, who played by the rules who’ve gotten into good schools.”
Warren complains that many of those students are saddled with unbearable debt upon graduation, and it’s not fair.
“For me this is very personal,” she said. “I graduated from a commuter college that cost $50 per semester.
“These are state schools … many of them doing anything they can to keep costs under control but if the family has to pick up a much larger share then that’s experienced as rising tuition.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that tuition has increased by 559 percent in the last 30 years, but what Warren and others don’t seem willing to discuss is how their overblown salaries as professors are contributing to the problem.
