‘Pocahontas’ Warren Hits Rock Bottom: Says Trump Inspires Domestic Terrorism

Is that today’s new talking point?

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whom President Trump refers to as “Pocahontas,” will probably run for president in 2020.

Until she makes it official, she has to do everything possible to remain in the public eye.

This time, though, Warren may have gone too far.

She says Trump inspires “domestic right-wing terrorism.”

Yeah, for real.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spoke at American University Washington College of Law in a speech billed as foreign policy-focused; however, it included criticism of President Donald Trump and his policies and claimed he promotes white nationalism and encourages “domestic right-wing terrorism.”

Warren: “He cozies up to white nationalists. He undermines the free press and incites violence against journalists.

The 2016 election provided a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and fight for our democracy every single day,” Warren said. “That starts with protecting our elections and democratic processes, and making it clear that there will be severe consequences for those – foreign or domestic – who meddle, hack, or undermine them.

It means ensuring a meaningful opportunity for every American citizen to vote. And it means fighting for equal justice and protection under the law for all.

It also requires us to speak out against hateful rhetoric that fuels domestic terrorism of all kinds, whether in San Bernadino or Charleston, Orlando or Charlottesville, Fort Hood or Pittsburgh. We must speak plainly about all of these incidents.

Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values.

Let’s start with a serious problem: Around the world, democracy is under assault. Authoritarian governments are gaining power.

Right-wing demagogues are gaining strength. Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled and begun to reverse.

Inequality is rapidly growing, transforming rule by-the-people into rule by-wealthy-elites.

As one might expect, there is not a surge in right-wing violence.

From Daily Signal:

According to The Washington Post, which relies on Global Terrorism Database data, there were zero acts of right-wing terrorism in the entire nation in 2002. Since then, we have seen a “surge,” to 36 in a nation of 325-plus million people in 2017. Among those acts, there were 11 fatalities.

In other words, fewer homicides were committed by political terrorists of any stripe in the United States in 2017 than were committed by undocumented immigrants in the state of Texas alone—which, I am assured, is an incredibly low number that shouldn’t worry us very much.

House Democrats plan to go after President Trump’s tax returns once they are in power come January.

From Fox News:

House Democrats’ first order of business in the new Congress will be targeting President Trump’s tax returns, setting the confrontational tone of the lower chamber.

The first bill, called House Resolution 1 (H.R. 1), indicates the Democrats’ inclination to resist Trump not only in House committees, where a number of investigations will be launched in January, but also by introducing legislation that directly involves the president.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) is likely to once again become Speaker, despite copious amounts of backlash.

According to Pelosi, all Republicans are “despicable.”

Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness

Published

on

The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan. Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things. Other homes and buildings for the wealthy are taking other measures to increase security. “Everybody is worried about security,” an insider said to reporters. “Every top building is adding security. It’s out of control. We hope it won’t be needed, but we will be ready.” The insider said the building is currently working with the NYPD and Homeland Security. “There will be officers with submachine guns,” the source stated. “We’ve always had immense security, but there will be more. We’ll have extra patrols. The entire building can be shut down with one button.” via Fox News: Many buildings are hiring off duty cops instead of private security companies because they fear a repeat of Denver, where a private guard shot and killed a protester, said one real estate insider. “The NYPD is advising buildings to get the extra security,” the source said. “They’ve never done this before.” Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents. How sad is it that folks are terrified about their physical safety and for the property they own simply because of a national election, which is one of the many privileges of living in a republic? We, unlike many nations, get to choose…

Good News: Jobless Claims Drop to 751,000, Which Is A New Pandemic Low

Published

on

Good news in the realm of economics as the number of new applications for unemployment benefits dropped down to 751,000 last week, according to a new report from the Labor Department. This is a the lowest numbers we’ve seen since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The number of actual claims was lower than the 770,000 predicted by economists. via Washington Examiner: Additionally, states reported 359,667 initial claims for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, a new category of eligibility created by the March CARES Act that provides benefits for workers sidelined by the pandemic, such as gig workers whose work dried up. Altogether, then, around 1.1 million workers filed for benefits. Thursday’s release indicates that the labor market is healing, if slowly, but that the situation remains extremely bad by historical standards. In comparison, prior to the pandemic, weekly claims had been running close to 200,000. Another point of comparison would be that weekly claims now are still worse than they were at the depths of the Great Recession in 2009. The total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending Oct. 10 was more than 22 million. Last year, in the comparable week, that number was 1.4 million. This is fantastic news for our country. We’re finally on the road to recovery after this extremely difficult year. Now, if only we could get folks to stop panicking needlessly about COVID-19 and fighting to keep lockdowns going perpetually, that would be most excellent. While the virus that swept the globe was definitely real and nothing to laugh at, much of the science points to the reaction to the illness being just as bad, if not worse, than the disease itself. Lockdowns almost completely destroyed the economy. The left was thrilled by this because it took away one of…
