"I never expected to go to Washington. Heck, for the most part I never even wanted to go. But I’m here to fight for something that I believe is worth absolutely everything: to give each one of our kids a fighting chance to build a future full of promise and discovery." Elizabeth Warren
Corporations have bleached the color, character and culture out of my home town, Las Vegas and corporate media has bleached the character of our leaders out of American politics.
Prediction: Elizabeth Warren will be the next to have political catastrophe befall her. Her savior...Hillary Clinton.
Civil Chat with Lee looks at SNUB involving Speaker Boehner and Netanyahu, House passing of Anti Abortion Bill, Elizabeth Warren calls Anti-Obamacare Bill Corporate Welfare. Are tax increases redistribution of wealth OR just part of the economic cycles?
As Clinton learned in 2008, a candidate that appeals to voters’ hearts can beat a candidate that appeals to their heads. And Clinton, for all of her built-in advantages in a 2016 race, will be hard pressed to ever be the heart candidate of the party base. Elizabeth Warren would be that candidate the minute she signals her interest in running. That fact should scare Clinton and her political team.Chris Cillizza WP
“You’ve asked me about the politics. All I can do is take you back to the principle part of this,” she said. “I know what I am in Washington to do: I’m here to fight for hardworking families.”

Warren fights bank on student loans
Last week Senator Elizabeth Warren touched on a subject that affect millions. She spoke about thestudent loan crisis created by banks. This is a story that inevitably affects a large percentage of the American population. A large number of American students are saddled with debt before they have even begun their careers.
Senator Elizabeth Warren however in the hearing last week detailed an even more sinister occurrence. Banks abuse parents who cosigned loans. I will talk about that.

Elizabeth Warren schooled Chris Matthews
It was necessary for Elizabeth Warren to school Chris Mathews on how the Senate and Congress work. It seems like many in America do not understand that America no longer has one person/one vote. It takes a super majority to do anything in America. It is the reason why America is dysfunctional.
Let’s talk about how to get past this dysfunction. Let us talk about what America really needs.

Join Joe Dunn and Special Guest Cherokee Genealogist Twila Barnes for an hour discussion of Twila's Barnes' research into Senator Elizabeth Warren's ancestry claims. Twila Barnes researched Elizabeth Warren during the 2012 MA Senate Race and debunked Elizabeth Warren's claims. In Warren's new book, "A Fighting Chance," she writes that she was "hurt" and "angry" that people challenged her claims, for which, to this day, there is no evidence. Twila Barnes can be found online at pollysgranddaughter.com, and on Twitter @pollysgdaughter. You can listen on your phone or call in with your questions or comments simply by dialing (347) 826-9184, or listen online during the live broadcast and ON DEMAND 24/7.
“I talk to nurses and programmers, salespeople and firefighters, people who bust their tails every day. Not one of them — not one — stashes their money in the Cayman Islands to avoid paying their fair share of taxes,” the Massachusetts Democrat said of Romney, a barb that elicited a roar of applause.
“Mitt Romney wants to give billions in breaks to big corporations — but he and Paul Ryan would pulverize financial reform, voucherize Medicare and vaporize Obamacare,” Elizabeth Warren
U.S. Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren joins us to talk problems and solutions as she sees them. In an era of cautious and clichéd pols, she has been candid as well as insightful. Her running against new incumbent Scott Brown has drawn attention, donations and hyperbole from all sides. We get into the specifics of how she sees us getting out of our national morass.
Hilary Clinton decides to run, finally. Can she win this time? Is she progressive enough? Why isn't Elizabeth Warren running for president? What will happen with the Iran negotiations? How formidable is Scott Walker as the next Republican presidential candiddate? Is Rand Paul being Rand Paul?, And whatever YOU want to talk about!

Why oh why do so many Americans fear big ideas? Seems like we'd rather have a President who is a stereotypical accountant than a bold-stroke leader.
I wasn't even going to get into the HIllary Clinton v. Elizabeth Warren game, much less the conga line of GOP clods. Yet the murmurs in media and, of course, online commenters has gotten sad and a bit toxic. The current foolish instant cliché about Warren is 1) she is too inexperienced to be Prez and 2) just look at what happened with this current inexperienced guy named Obama.
For Warren, let us recall that the same donkeys brayed that she was two one-dimensional and too inexperienced to be Senator. Instead, she strode into office with her tiny, slender body and quiet voice as a real warrior. She put the lie to accepted truth of the limits of new Senators being impotent. She has set the standard for what a legislator should accomplish.
She did it with bold, well-formulated ideas — big ideas.
I don't want her to leave the Senate for a run for the top office. Yet in her spot, she already is a template for what we should expect from politicians. We don't need another incrementalist. We don't need another political coward in the White House.
Hillary is stuggling to move past the controversy over her use of a private email account as SecState. Will it spill over into 2016 with Rep. Trey Gowdy at the helm of the investigation?
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is highly critical of Obama's Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal. So why is Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowing to pass the trade deal?
"The NSA is now the defacto ruler of the USA. Because of personal corruption in the people we send to represent us.
And they serve Obama and the Democrats," says a friend. True? Elizabeth Chryst with her take on it.
Our Capitol Hill expert brings us up to date on the Trade deal, the PATRIOT Act renewal, Hillary's emails and other business taking place in Congress.
