Liz Warren’s Phony, Beer-Guzzling PR Stunt Explained

You can see the smoke and mirrors if you look closely enough.

Liz Warren

Elizabeth Warren just couldn’t wait.  Her desire to jump head first into the 2020 election cycle began yesterday as she announced that she had formed an exploratory committee to examine her chances at winning the White House.

Of course, Warren will have a massive, uphill battle ahead of her.  Not only will there likely be countless other democratic candidates emerging from the woodwork in the coming weeks, but she gambled and lost big on a DNA stunt several months ago that tarnished her credibility mightily.

The public relations team working with Warren will have to remedy this embarrassment and fast.  That’s why, just hours after announcing her candidacy, Warren was convinced to live stream herself cooking and drinking beer; a classic political move meant to connect the candidate to the “everyman” archetype.

Well, I suppose if she can’t claim to be Native American anymore, she’ll have to settle for claiming to be ‘MERICAN.

Many saw the move as blatant pandering to voters in the middle, politically, and in the middle class economically.

The problem with that is that this video is nothing short of Hollywood, under the veneer of “down home” goodness.

First of all, Warren’s kitchen is lit like a movie set.  No matter her distance from the camera, she is in perfect lighting.  I don’t suggest trying to duplicate this at home without some extra lighting equipment.

Then there’s the “cameo” from her husband who appears to have been standing next to the refrigerator  to which Warren walked to retrieve her beer.  The PR firm likely didn’t want it to look like Warren was some bossy ballbuster who made her husband bring her drinks.  That doesn’t play well in the midwest.

Then comes the most telling bit for this author:  Warren’s thoughtful concealment of the beer label.  You can almost catch her remembering to do so when she first appears back on camera.  This is coached behavior, undoubtedly, with Warren’s team not looking to alienate any particular brand.  All we know is that Warren waited to get back on camera to twist the top off, so we know it isn’t some snooty, artisanal craft beer that you need a bottle opener for.  It’s ‘MERICAN beer.

Certainly, Warren has achieved what she hoped to, but for those willing to look a little closer, the smoke and mirrors are just barely visible.

Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war. This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war. We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House. The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness. This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother…

Congress to Take Action Against ABC News for Covering Up Epstein Story [Developing]

Is the GOP growing a spine?

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to see today. It could potentially be great news for America, too! Apparently, Congressional Republicans have finally grown a spine and have decided to do something about corruption within the mainstream media. At the very least, it could be a solid start. There’s no reason ABC News should’ve covered-up a bombshell story they had on Jeffrey Epstein years ago. But they did it. Why? Because disgraced former President Bill Clinton was involved? Hmm… There’s also no reason for uninformed Americans to remain uninformed Americans. But if ABC and all other left-leaning outlets continue to hide the truth and bury the facts, then Democrats will continue to win elections. And who is that helping, exactly? From ABC News: Megyn Kelly reported on Sunday night that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has contacted the president of ABC News and is demanding that the network answer questions about why it killed a bombshell story three years ago on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that involved former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The news comes after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exclusively reported last month on leaked video footage from inside ABC News that showed anchor Amy Robach admitting that the network had the scandal on Epstein three years ago but that the network spiked it. “Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about #PrinceAndrew…threatened us in a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…That also quashed the story.” – @arobach #EpsteinCoverup https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1195741556390666242?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195741556390666242&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ffeminist-chrissy-teigen-calls-republican-rep-elise-stefanik-trash All signs pointed to Epstein being murdered in his jail cell. The writing was on the wall. Everyone could see it. Someone more powerful than he needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut and didn’t sing. It’s that simple. A…
