    Default The ‘Draft Elizabeth Warren’ Effort Gets $1M Boost

    This is a few days old but I just can't say enough how much I like this lady. Maybe one of the few politicians I have any faith in anymore. Let's hope this lady changes her mind!

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) insists she won’t challenge former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination – but her liberal admirers aren’t taking no for an answer.

    The former Harvard law professor and bane of Wall Street has repeatedly been urged by progressive Democratic groups to enter the race. This past fall, “Ready for Warren,” a Super PAC formed to draft Warren into the 2016 contest, began expanding its team of activists and organizers in key presidential states, MSNBC reported.

    Since we were given the stories that organized labor put Obama in office. Then we should have say in who we pick. The Clinton's had their day. Bill signed NAFTA. Both made trips to Korea during this Presidency for a trade deal there.
    Labor shouldn't give a dime to Hillary. Warren should realize that. The Clinton's need to get out of the way. Their supporters need to realize that too.
    If it's their desire to have the first woman President then Warren is best for us. So far she sounds better than all the men in DC.

    I watched her speaking about the "deal" being given to the banks and I felt she is one politician that will speak for the citizens, instead of the corporations.
    I really like what I hear.

    Does she really want to mess with the bankers?

    Page 265-266 "Our Occulted History" by Jim Marrs.

    President John F. Kennedy, like Lincoln, attempted to curtail the bankers by diminishing the power of the Federal Reserve. In June 1963, he issued $4.2 billion in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rater than the Federal Reserve System and also took steps to shift power away form the wealthy corporate elite. According to University of Pittsburgh professor Donald Gibson in his well-researched 1994 book "Battling Wall Street: The Kennedy Presidency". these steps included: tax proposals to distinction in tax reform between productive and nonproductive investment, eliminating the tax privileges of U.S.-based global investment companies, cracking down on foreign tax havens, rejecting proposals to eliminate tax privileges for the wealthy, proposing increased taxes for large oil and mineral companies, and revising the investment tax credit.

    For such attempts to equalize the economy, Kennedy was killed in a military-style ambush while riding in a motorcade through Dallas in November 1963 in circumstances still unsettled. Many conspiracy researches do not believe it is sheer coincidence that Lincoln and Kennedy---the only two U.S. Presidents to issue debt-free money---were both shot in the head in public.


    If she wins, she dead, than again IMO she has "talked the talk,but hasn't walked the walk" No bankers have been prosecuted or in indicted yet. And they should be!!!

    She knows what she's up against and has pointed out the appointees that Dems have put in charge of things. Her own party. Maybe that's why she won't run. She knows that most of her peers serve them.
    These bankers need to get in line.

    The Banks run Washington,always have and most likely always will.. Take the credit card scam,Banks borrow at the prime which is about 1% from the federal government and then issue credit cards with interest as high as 30% Nice profit and then they throw in the fees.. Back a few years I could borrow payday money on the street and had less interest than what these banks charge. All this with the backing of Washington because Washington is run by the banks.. after listening to Sen. Warrens speech the other night she did sound very impressive but like any politician she has to deliver.. Any politician will tell you what you want to hear to get elected.. look at the man in charge.. Obama, he forgot about labor.. Nothing but broken promises..

    I am going to make this my Elizabeth Warren thread!

    ‘Enough is enough’: Elizabeth Warren’s launches fiery attack after Congress weakens Wall Street regs
    On Wednesday, I came to the floor to talk to Democrats, asking them to strip this provision out of the omnibus bill and protect taxpayers.

    On Thursday, I came to the floor to talk to Republicans. Republicans say they don’t like bailouts either. So I asked them to vote the way they talk. If they don’t like bailouts, then they could take out this provision that puts taxpayers right back on the hook for bailing out big banks.

    Today, I’m coming to the floor not to talk about Democrats or Republicans, but about a third group that also wields tremendous power in Washington: Citigroup.

    She has a long hill to climb if she has to fight the banks on the way to the top..

    Didn't everyone hear that Citibank is going to relocate their offices to the US Capital Building?
