Elizabeth Warren Once Claimed She Was Native American, Her Newest Claim About Her History is Even Stranger

Published

on

Remember back in the day when Sen. Elizabeth Warren claimed she was of Native American heritage, though she can’t prove it. This little comment has earned her endless scorn and one line zingers from President Trump and other conservatives, and rightfully so.

Well, as strange as that whole thing was, she’s made a new claim about her history and this one is even more far-fectched. She claims she’s a capitalist.

Go ahead. Don’t stifle your hysterical laughter. Let it all out.

Speaking to the New England Council, at an event typically used to springboard candidates into a national campaign, Warren said she believes in markets and trade, while highlighting a bankruptcy policy change she offered back in 2009.

Warren has styled herself as a “bankruptcy expert,” but her proposals to reform the bankruptcy process have been routinely demolished by economists more familiar with the subject. She also regularly claims not to be opposed to “capitalism” per se, but to “crony capitalism,” though her solution isn’t freer markets and fewer regulations, it’s a quasi-socialist collection of monetary policies that publish those who make money, and provide handouts to those who don’t.

But Warren, who is obviously running for President in 2020, is trying to rehab her public image, and in addition to cozying up to Native American tribes, she’s also trying to cozy up to moderates who fear the term “socialist” as a way to describe policy.

The problem is, of course, she’s losing her core constituency: the socialists.

Obviously Warren is having some sort of political identity crisis. Either that or she’s completely clueless about what it actually means to be a progressive. If you support massive government interference in the free market then you are most definitely not a capitalist.

You can’t claim to be economically liberal and all gung-ho for a free market system. The two are opposed to each other at the most fundamental level. It’s like claiming a human being born with male DNA can just up and say he’s a woman, or a cat who thinks he’s also a dog. Oh. Wait. Progressives try to do that too.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
