Obama's latest progressive appointment
Progressive hero Elizabeth Warren has been appointed to an all new consumer protection agency. Perhaps it was another one of those honest mistakes by the President, but this appointment is yet another enemy of capitalism who appeared in Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" movie to say that capitalism has failed and it's time to rewrite these rules. Now she'll have that power. And if she is not given real power, progressive leaders say there will be "Hell to pay". Ref. Source 4
Elizabeth Warren: no one gets rich on their own
You remember Warren - she's the one picked to oversee TARP and she helped create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (which was birthed out of the Dodd-Frank disaster). She made some pretty remarkable comments this week, proclaiming that no one gets rich on their own. Ref. Source 3
Obama's consumer czar Elizabeth Warren claims minority status to get invited to luncheons?
Elizabeth Warren doesn't exactly scream "minority" when you look at her. In fact, she looks just like every other standard middle aged white woman. So why did she put down that she's a minority (Native Indian) on some of her applications? When confronted, Warren gave the worst excuses of all time (and the media yawned). Ref. Source 2
Obama's consumer czar goes racist: all Indians have high cheek bones
Obama's consumer czar, Elizabeth Warren, is running for Senate and as in any political campaign, opposition digs into the candidate's past. Warren was exposed for falsely claiming she was a Native American on job applications - but now she's digging the hole even deeper, explaining she is Native American because of her "High cheek bones."

In an extremely rare rebuke, Sen. Elizabeth Warren was instructed to take her seat after clashing with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell during Sen. Jeff Sessions' confirmation debate on Tuesday night.
McConnell determined the Massachusetts Democrat had violated a Senate rule against impugning another senator. The ruling means Warren will be barred from speaking on the floor until Sessions' debate ends, McConnell's office confirmed.
"She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted," McConnell said on the Senate floor.
The emotional exchange occurred during debate on the nomination of Sessions to be attorney general. Warren was reading from a 1986 letter from Coretta Scott King, the widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, which was critical of Sessions, who was then a nominee to be a federal judge. Ref. CNN.
