By: Saturday December 13, 2014 10:00 am

There are a lot of members of Congress who say they love a certain old storyteller, but after watching them at work these last few days, they sure don’t act like they love him — or hist stories.

 

Elizabeth Warren: Better, But Not There Yet

By: Tuesday November 11, 2014 6:50 pm

The people don’t just want a Government that will “stand up” to the big banks. They want a Government that will enforce the law, and not make exceptions for big bankers, torturers, intelligence community members, defense contractors, and local police who violate constitutional rights and run civil asset forfeiture rackets using police state strategy and tactics. That means prosecutions, indictments, and convictions for big shots in each of these areas, because there has to be one law for all Americans, not different legal standards for big shots, the middle class, and the poor.

They also want more than a Government that will just help out students, but rather a Government that will forgive student debt, and, going forward, will provide free education for all Americans through College. They have it in Germany. Of course, we can afford it here too. Why isn’t Warren, one of our two supposedly most progressive professional politicians, advocating that.

By: Monday October 13, 2014 1:14 pm

Senator Elizabeth Warren condemned the Obama Administration for perpetually siding with Wall Street instead of Wall Street’s victims.

Demagoguing Feminism for Fun and Profit

By: Tuesday July 15, 2014 8:45 am

This morning we’re all treated to a feminist screed by John Chait about some comments Diane Ravitch made about Campbell Brown.

If you’re surprised that someone like Chait should suddenly wrap himself in the mantle of feminism and set himself up as judge and jury as to who’s a good feminist and who’s not, don’t be. Because that demagogue party is just getting started.

Why Did Elizabeth Warren Pick a “Pay For” That Would Never Pass for Student Loan Reform Bill?

By: Wednesday June 11, 2014 1:29 pm

I confess to being cynical. But remember when the first thing the Democratic House passed in 2006 was prescription drug reform — only to renounce it when they actually had the power to get it through? Somehow Elizabeth Warren’s Student Loan reform bill feels like a similar political stunt that was never meant to actually stand a chance of passing.

Late Night: The Endless Loop

Is that the best we can do; be saddled for eight years with Mrs. Welfare Reform, Mrs. Wall Street and media deregulation, and Ms. Iraq War, all rolled into one?
