Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has fallen from a Democrat presidential nominee front runner to a long shot candidate over the last year.
Once heralded as the Democratic Party’s most reliable link to Native Americans, Warren’s insistence of Cherokee ancestry came under heavy fire from President Donald Trump. The blonde-haired, blue-eyed liberal was roundly called out as a fraud by Trump as he mockingly labeled her “Pocahontas.” Although Democrats tried to mangle the president’s nickname into a backhanded racist utterance, the label backed Warren into a corner. After all, she built her Ivy League pedigree and political career on her Native American claims.
President Trump’s nickname for the progressive darling didn’t stick, because after she took an ancestry DNA test, she was proven a fraud. The mainstream media has upped the ante and now refers to her as “Fauxcahontas.” It appears the president finally took a loss on something. That being said, the far-left senator from Massachusetts recently announced her bid for the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination for President of the United States, and these are five things you should know.
#1: Sen. Warren Is Anti-Business and Anti-Jobs
The debate over whether excessive corporate taxation and regulation inhibit job growth or not has been well settled by the Trump Administration. Reducing taxes and regulations under the GOP’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act helped create an unprecedented economic boom that reduced unemployment to historic lows. Unfortunately, far-leftists like Senators Bernie Sanders and Warren are unhappy with the current state of prosperity. They favor burdensome government regulation and higher taxes for the purpose of funding socialist-leaning policies.
Warren recently joined the ranks of radical socialist Democrats such as New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to propose massive tax hikes of the very corporations that have increased jobs and top-earners who own them. The Democratic hopeful is pushing a 70-percent tax increase on business owners that will result in massive job losses for working Americans. Like her socialist counterparts, Warren prefers welfare to work.
#2: Elizabeth Warren Could Be Disbarred For Lying
Under penalty, Sen. Warren lied on her Texas Bar Application by stating she was an “American Indian.” Although this designation neither adds nor detracts from scoring high enough earn a law license, applicants are required to provide accurate information. While media coverage of her false claims about being a Cherokee has turned her into a national laughingstock, this information only recently came to light.
Warren has absolutely no reasonable defense for lying on her Texas Barr application in the same fashion she did to leverage a professorship at Harvard. She is currently on an apology tour for her false Native American claims. She appears hopeful that enough liberals and people of color will forgive and look favorable on her in the primaries. However, there has been an outcry to strip Warren of her license, and a real Cherokee lawmaker stands among them.
“She has claimed to be a native American for, I guess, 40 years,” Oklahoma Rep. and Cherokee Nation member Markwayne Mullin said. “The fact of the matter is she is caught now, and she did apologize, but that doesn’t mean that she should or can move forward with her political career.”
#3: Warren Once Supported School-Choice Vouchers
Like her colleague Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker of New Jersey, Warren was also once a school choice advocate. The voucher program is recognized as among the best ways for people living in low-income neighborhoods with underperforming schools to access a better education for their children. Warren went as far as to co-write a book with her daughter called “The Two-Income Trap” that had this to say on the subject.
“Any policy that loosens the ironclad relationship between location-location-location and school-school-school would eliminate the need for parents to pay an inflated price for a home just because it happens to lie within the boundaries of a desirable school district,” Warren’s co-authored book states. “A well-designed voucher program would fit the bill neatly. A taxpayer-funded voucher that paid the entire cost of educating a child (not just a partial subsidy) would open a range of opportunities to all children.”
She reversed her position after Trump Administration Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos pushed the choice initiative that most favors low-income urban Americans. Can you spell “resist” and “obstruct”?
#4: Warren Was Once A Republican
A little-known fact about the far-left senator was that she was a registered Republican when it was beneficial to be so in Pennsylvania from 1991-1996. At the time, Warren was teaching at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. She switched to Democrat while weaseling her way into a Harvard Law job under the phony Native American claim.
“I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets. I think that is not true anymore,” Warren said. “I was a Republican at a time when I felt like there was a problem that the markets were under a lot more strain. It worried me whether or not the government played too activist a role.”
Her repeated shifts in policy and willingness to hitch her wagon to career-furthering agendas wreak of opportunism.
#5: Warren Is A Hypocrite
As the reversal on education choice would indicate, Warren moves with her party’s prevailing policy winds. Rarely, if ever, does Warren put the betterment of her constituents ahead of her political career. The liberal senator has been so hypocritical that she actually denounced home-flipping as a way everyday people could get ahead financially in her books.
On the flip side, if you will, Warren and her husband flipped five or more homes during the 1990s in her home state of Oklahoma. The couple reportedly turned a profit of upwards of $240,000, quadrupling their investment.
