Liz Warren, Lagging in Polls and Cash, Offers Up Hail Mary on Student Loan Debt

Liz Warren’s campaign isn’t going according to plan, and this latest diatribe has her snatching at millennial voters in desperation.

The democratic field for 2020 is already enormous, with no fewer than 20 candidates on the dance floor.

And while it may look as though all of these liberal politicos are dancing to the same tune, we are beginning to see a few candidates attempting to distance themselves from the rest.

Somewhat predictably, the policy positions that would be most helpful in distinguishing these candidates are also the most radical.  Similar, the candidates who are espousing them are all the one who are struggling to stand out in the crowded field.

Liz Warren, who entered the presidential race earlier than many, has routinely been looking to manufacture this sort of “breakthrough” moment in the campaign.  Her first foray into this field was a farcical video broadcast from her kitchen, while drinking a beer and cooking dinner.   The only issue was who phony and staged the entire thing felt, from the undoubted use of professional lighting to the mental tick Warren had about keeping the label of her beer bottle from facing the camera.  (We wouldn’t want to alienate the Coors drinkers in Miller country, after all).

Now, as Warren’s campaign admits to recent fundraising struggles, a bold new strategy is emerging for the dwindling democrat.

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has identified something else to finance with her proposed wealth tax: wiping out student debt and tuition at public colleges.

The Massachusetts senator, who has raced ahead of her 2020 rivals with detailed plans to rearrange America’s economic priorities, unveiled on Monday her proposal for easing access to higher education. It would:

  • Spend $1.25 trillion over 10 years to eliminate up to $50,000 in student debt for those with household incomes under $100,000

  • Allow states to make public colleges tuition-free

  • Spend $100 billion on expanded Pell grants to defray more nontuition expenses

And where would the money come from?

The money would come from the 2% annual tax she proposes to levy on accumulations of wealth exceeding $50 million, with an additional 1% on wealth exceeding $1 billion. Warren justified the link by asserting that higher education financing has long been crimped by tax cuts for wealthy Americans and corporations.

Free college tuition has long been a pipe dream of the democrats, and Warren is likely hoping to pump up her lagging campaign by being one of the first candidates to put forth a plan.

Is it too little, too late for a campaign that began awkwardly after Warren’s DNA debacle?  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Widow Of Man Mary Trump Said Was Paid To Take SAT For President Trump Denies Claim

Published

on

The widow of a former friend of President Trump’s has come out and denied a claim that her late husband was paid to take the SAT for him, a claim that comes from the pages of a new book by Mary Trump, the president’s niece. Pam Shriver, who is a former tennis superstar and current tennis analyst, responded to the claim by denying any knowledge of her late husband, Joe Shapiro, having ever took the standardized test for the president. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this,” Shriver said in a video posted to social media on Wednesday. She also said her late husband met Trump during their time at the University of Pennsylvania, which would have been years after the president had taken the SATs, because he originally went to Fordham University for two years before transferring. “My late husband Joe Shapiro passed away 21 years ago. He was a man of great integrity, honesty; he was a hard worker. He was literally the smartest person I ever met,” Shriver added. The book by Mary Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man contains the following passage concerning the allegation: “To hedge his bets, he enlisted Joe Shapiro, a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker, to take his SATs for him. That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo IDs and computerized records. Donald, who never lacked for funds, paid his buddy well.” There’s no actual proof this event…

Supreme Court Says Manhattan District Attorney Is Allowed To Obtain Trump Tax Returns

Published

on

A new ruling handed down from the Supreme Court states that President Trump’s accountants will have to release years of financial records and tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, ruling that he doesn’t have immunity from a grand jury investigation in NYC. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who also happens to be a Democrat, a fact which will surprise absolutely no one, will now be allowed to the see returns in question after the justices voted 7-2 in favor of the release of the tax returns being released. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s two appointees to the court, joined the majority. However, Trump prevailed in the second case as the justices said it would not allow Congress to obtain tax and financial records, kicking the issue back to the lower courts. Unlike other recent presidents, Trump has refused to publish his tax returns and other financial papers that would provide a snapshot of his wealth. Back in May, there was three hours of oral testimony held by teleconference in which lawyers went back and forth over whether or not the House of Representatives and a New York prosecutor could subpoena Trump’s banks and accounting firm for his financial documents. There are three House committees who are seeking to get a peek at records from Mazars, the accountants for the Trump Organization, and two banks that gave loans to several Trump businesses. Democratic leaders think that the documents in question will give insight into whether or not Trump borrowed cash from, or had dealings with, Russian companies before taking office. Yes, that’s right. The left is still harping on the Russia nonsense, digging and rooting through every bit of garbage they can find to uncover whether or not there’s some sort of connection between…
