Video || Elizabeth Warren Suggests Electoral College Causes “Crumbling” of Democracy

Gosh, I know, it’s a terrible thing to lose an election. And Elizabeth Warren is clearly concerned that the same fate incurred by Hillary Clinton may await her – winning the popular vote but losing the Electoral College.

From remarks Warren made Tuesday at the “2018 Ideas Conference” for the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress:

Democracy is crumbling around us . . . In 2016, nearly 3 million more people votd for Hllary Clinton than for Donald Trumpm. But Trump took the presidency. That is not exactly the sign of a healthy democracy. Democracy hangs on the idea that whoever gets the most votes wins. That’s the central starting point, and it’s worth repeating every single day.

 

So she’s already setting things up so that she can try to undermine and reverse the results of the election should she be the Democratic nominee in 2020 and win the popular vote while losing the Electoral College. Expect a sustained barrage against the Electoral College from Democrats in order to stir opposition to it and a potential crisis – even rioting in the streets – if the same thing happens in 2020 with the vote.

We keep the Electoral College today to ensure all Americans have a voice. So that presidential candidates don’t spend all their time campaigning in New York City and Los Angeles and have to make it out to Iowa and Minnesota. Democrats love diversity and multiculturalism, except when it comes to elections.

Warren surely understands that we don’t live in a democracy. We live in a republic, a representative democracy that prevents a tyranny of the majority and forces presidential candidates to have wide appeal to various portions of the electorate, not just respond to one or two factions. And yes, the Electoral College could still – as was intended by the Framers – prevent the ascension of a potential tyrant into office, since it still formally decides the election.

Video || Pocahontas Descendent Calls on Elizabeth Warren To Take DNA Test

I wonder how big an issue this will become if Warren runs?

Sorry, I know, she doesn’t have much to say. A fun little stunt by Tucker though.

I dunno. I can kind of understand Warren not wanting to take a DNA test. I mean, what if she found out she actually is Native American? Her whole self-identity would be at stake, since I’m sure she doesn’t believe any of her own nonsense, which seems to have been little more than a sensible career move.

I’d hate to take a DNA test. What if I found out I’m not Jewish? Not a member of that “tribe.” My whole self-identity would be at stake too.

That’s what happened to oh-so-New-York-Jewish Larry David during an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm when he discovered – turned out later to be a mistake – that his parents were Christians. All of a sudden, he started doing lots of stuff Jewish men are incapable of.

No, Warren Did Not Say She Won’t Run for President in 2020

It is being widely reported that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said Sunday that she will not be a candidate for president in 2020.

But that is not what she said. Warren is both a lawyer and a politician, so you have to listen very carefully to how she phrases things.

“I am not running for president in 2020,” is what she said. Notice, that’s a present tense sentence. Of course, she is not running right now for president. That doesn’t rule out that she won’t eventually run for president, and her interviewer, CNN’s Jim Acosta, should have noticed this and nailed her down as to whether she WILL run for president.

You may remember Bill Clinton’s statement that there “is” no relationship with Monica Lewinsky. At that moment, there indeed was not, because he’d been caught. When men get caught with their mistresses, they either get divorced or there “is” no relationship anymore. Bill, of course, may have had a lamp or two thrown his way, but he did not get divorced.

Warren’s problem is that she is up for reelection this year. So she IS running for Senate. The kiss of death in a reelection campaign is to say you’re going to try for another post once you get reelected.

In fact, Warren has made moves suggesting she will run for president, including donating money to all 50 state Democratic parties.

She also says in the interview that her mother was “part Native American.” Instead of asking how much part Native American, Acosta tried to set her up to complain about President Trump. Referring to Trump calling her Pocahontas, Acosta asked, “Doesn’t that bother you?”

In fact, there is no proof Warren has any Native American blood in her at all. Warren earlier in her career listed herself as a minority but denies she did it to get jobs. She refused to take a DNA test might disprove her claim of Native American heritage.

There is, however, some evidence a cousin of hers edited a Native American cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow.”

Elizabeth Warren: The Democratic Primary Was Rigged

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Thursday acknowledged that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic primaries against Bernie Sanders by taking control of the DNC before the primaries even started.

GOP to Start Turning Elizabeth Warren Into Nancy Pelosi

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is not as toxic as House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi at the moment, but Republicans intend to change that, possibly implanting into the electorate an indelibly negative image of the woman President Trump may face in 2020. According to the Washington Times, the proximate agenda is to harm the prospects of Democratic Senate… Continue Reading

Defending Obama Against the Sensitivity Police

I’m glad President Obama got a taste of the left’s own medicine after committing the putatively sexist crime of referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Conn., as “Elizabeth.” Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, from whom the White House today said it expects an apology, suggested it was sexist. National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill actually said it… Continue Reading
