I hate to say “I told you so,” but in the case of Elizabeth Warren I’m afraid I must.
In October I warned Bay State voters that if re-elected, Sen. Warren would dump us for higher office faster than her pal Bernie Sanders blew through $300,000 — and the ozone — flying private jets last fall while screaming about a climate apocalypse.
Now that Warren’s run for commander in chief is official, let’s take a peek inside her teepee and see what the 1/1024th Native American “chief” is offering. On Saturday she told the crowd, “Because the man in the White House is not the cause of what’s broken, he’s just the latest — and most extreme — symptom of what’s gone wrong in America. A product of a rigged system that props up the rich and the powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else.”
Perhaps the Cambridge one-percenter can explain: If the system is “rigged” against the little guy, how could she — the daughter of a janitor — become unequivocally rich and now powerful enough to run for president? With her net worth estimated to be as high as $10 million, I’d say America’s capitalist system worked out quite nicely for her. Wouldn’t you?
When it comes to “rigging the system,” isn’t she the rigger-in-chief by falsely claiming to be a Native American at Harvard University, and elsewhere, to advance her career in academia, thereby committing affirmative-action fraud?
But remember, the “rules” don’t apply to liberals — they’re too busy waging class warfare for political gain.
With respect to the Trump Administration, is Warren unaware that the unemployment rate for women, minorities and veterans have all fallen to historic lows? Or that today, thanks to Trump’s pro-growth economic policies — 157 million Americans are at work — the highest in our nation’s history. No one in their right mind would consider that “kicking dirt on everyone else” especially since 58 percent of the 5.3 million new jobs are occupied by women.
In the real world, that’s called empowerment — a pathway to the American Dream.
Warren also bemoaned that “the cost of college has more than tripled.” Yes, the cost of higher education has become too expensive — all the more reason she shouldn’t have accepted $350,000 to teach one class at Harvard — or accepted a 20-year interest-free loan. Wouldn’t tuition be lowered if elites like Warren weren’t soaking students with bloated salaries and sweetheart deals not afforded to the “little guy”?
Talk about “kicking dirt” in students’ faces.
Warren also took shots at Wall Street, lobbyists and big oil all of which donated millions to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, a candidate she effusively backed for president. If Liz has a legitimate beef with these institutions why didn’t she take a stand then and refuse to endorse hedge-fund Hillary?
It’s because, once again, the “rules” don’t apply to liberals.
