It seems that Sen. Elizabeth Warren might be hinting at a possible 2020 presidential run against President Donald Trump. Speaking at the Netroots Nation convention in New Orleans, she talked about the “politics of division” she said had been sowed by the Trump administration. She claimed she was talking about unity and democracy.
“We’re going to have to fight uphill. Me? I’m going up that hill. And I hope you are too. And I hope that you’ll reach your hand out and bring someone else along for the climb. Because we can only make it up that hill together.”
So who is it that’s supposedly fighting an uphill battle against the “politics of division”?
This is the crazy woman who thinks that the military’s greatest strength is diversity
Our military force's diversity is its greatest strength. The Army Secretary must show genuine support for ALL of our men & women in uniform.

The military is not about diversity. It is about unity, and protecting America as a country.
She also followed the Obama lead of claiming government is the reason for the success of entrepreneurs, and famously stated
“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.”
She’s also against equal opportunity of education and a staunch opponent of school choice. However, in 2003 this was not the case, when she claimed to support school choice. But, alas, being the hypocritical leftist that she is, she claimed before the confirmation hearing of Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee to Secretary of Education, should be disqualified because of her support of school choice.
Fighting Wall Street
She said about Wall Street
“We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”
On Net Neutrality, she supports it, which, as outlined in the Harvard Business Review, would stifle any potential competition to current major players
“We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”
She’s also hypocritical on her stance on student loan debt. To her voting base, she claimed the following:
“We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”
However, she supports the government controlled student loan industry, which keeps the cost of education astronomical. She also conveniently doesnt mention the fact that she made a small fortune with her nearly $430,000 salary at Harvard Law School.
She is consistent about her belief in making abortions and birth control available to everyone, on demand, and that it be free to the recipients and paid for by employers through health insurance premiums. She can’t say that, of course, so she claims Conservatives are trying to stop access to birth control. This is of course absurd, but absurdity doesn’t get in the way of Warren or her democrat followers. In the video below, she refers to Hobby Lobby, who won a court case allowing them to not have to pay for birth control for their employees via insurance premiums. Employees can still get it, anyone can, they just need to pay the $10 a month out of their pocket now.
Social Security is going broke, and will be fully depleted by 2034 based on the Social Security Administration 2018 Annual Report. This is old news, and has been being touted for many years, but to no avail as Congress refuses to fix it. But as usual, truth has no impact on Elizabeth Warren.
The GOP's made-up Social Security crisis threatens income for millions – including over 200k in MA. Tell the GOP: No Social Security cuts.

Warren told Lawrence O’Donnell in an interview (below) she was not wealthy, and did not one of them, and implied she did not own stocks. In reality, when she did this interview, she was worth at least $14.5 million, and had at least an $8 million investment portfolio of stocks and bonds.
Being Native American
She still has a lot of explaining to do for her family history that she claims she’s Native American. Since she checked the “Native American” box on her applications to University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University, seemingly to receive a leg up. (She received both jobs, by the way.) Which there is still no proof of her family history.
Also remember her lovely contribute to a cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” and signed it “Elizabeth Warren—Cherokee” that is not a joke. What recipes did she contribute to the book? They included included Cold Omelets with Crab Meat, Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing, Herbed Tomatoes, and Mexican Oatmeal Soup. The Warren tree of the Cherokee Indians were very skilled at hunting the fast moving Oklahoma Crab, which tended to graze on the plains in large numbers when it was not swimming in the Oklahoma Ocean. And the Herbed Tomatoes recipe, which calls for using a 7″ Teflon pan, was only prepared during great feasts when her ancestors would bring out the Teflon cookware and the Lenox Bone China they got from Macy’s.
Unfortunately, her recipes were found to be copied, some of them word for word, from other sources, as is documented here.
President Trump even offered money to her favorite charity if she would get a DNA test done, which she refused.
“I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian,” he said. “I have a feeling she will say no.”
We can only hope that Senator Warren does run in 2020, it would be the greatest gift to Conservatives the left could give them. Except for another Hillary run.
