Elizabeth Warren - Working Hard to Deceive

Friday, September 28, 2012

 

Grammy Award winning artist Lauryn Hill has said, “Reality is easy. It’s deception that’s the hard work.” That is most often true. Elizabeth Warren has been hard at work. Warren, now a candidate for the Senate against Scott Brown, has consistently said one thing publicly while quietly doing something completely different in private.

Saying one thing and doing another

From the moment she chose her campaign consultant onward, Warren’s campaign has been one of saying one thing and doing another. National Journal reported that Warren said Washington is, “risgged for big corporations that hire army’s of lobbyists” during her announcement. Her announcement was staged by the first person Warren hired for her campaign; former Deval Patrick Chief of Staff, and arguably the Commonwealth’s most powerful lobbyist, Doug Rubin.

Rubin through his firm, Northwind Strategies, lobbies on behalf of many clients including gambling and health care industry clients. He has direct access to and is a strong political ally of Governor Patrick.
Elizabeth Warren calls in her campaign literature for financial criminals to go to jail and to be punished, yet a convicted inside trader, George Soros, hosted a fundraiser for her. In addition he’s given thousands of dollars to her campaign account , and the Massachusetts Democratic Party for her campaign. His non-profit network includes the Demos Foundation, which is run by Warren’s daughter, Amelia Warren Tyagi. The Demos Foundation is the organization that sued the Commonwealth to force them to mail voter registration applications to welfare recipients, to drive up her mother’s vote.

Big words from Warren

Elizabeth Warren sympathizes with sub-prime mortgage victims on the campaign trail, and during the early stages of her campaign said the financial crisis happened “one bad mortgage at a time.” She held particular vitriol for a sub-prime mortgage company called Ameriquest. Writing in the Huffington Post in 2005 Warren accused the company of defrauding customers. Warren wrote, “even with the company sinking in lawsuits over its predatory lending practices, Mr. Bush had a compelling reason to appoint the CEO of Ameriquest to the ambassadorial post: Mr. Arnall and his wife contributed $5 million to a pro-Bush committee…”

Warren concluded her blog post with, “never let it be said that this president let little things like defrauding the public stand in the way of taking care of his friends.“

Those are big words from Warren , until you learn that her now political ally Governor Patrick was on the board of Ameriquest at this time. Not only was Governor Patrick on the Board of Ameriquest, he actively worked to help Arnall be confirmed in the U.S. Senate, something that wasn’t a done deal before he spoke in favor of it. Patrick even was cited by Barack Obama, as the reason he voted for the CEO as Ambassador. Patrick’s letter to the committee , as reported by the Boston Globe stated, “I always say the measure of a good company is not whether things always go well, but whether a company does the right thing when they don’t. By that measure, ACC Capital and Ameriquest are good companies.”

Elizabeth Warren directs vitriol at the senior management of sub-prime mortgage companies, until one of those people endorses her, as his “good friend.” Then she stops mentioning sub-prime mortgages all together in her campaign.

These first few instances only scratch the surface of how Elizabeth Warren has been working to deceive the public about her true record. Over the next few weeks we’ll be examining the many more ways she’s been doing this. Keep reading to find out.

Stephen Quist

This Rob Eno guy is going to lose the election for Senator Brown with all this rightwing rehetoric that just does not appeal to the electorate here in Massachusetts........people on the fence are going to read this guys drivel and vote opposite that which he endorses......

Sandy Williamson

Quist, we already knew you were an expert on drivel, but before you are critical of another author, you really need to have a deeper curriculum vitae on your own.

Can you tell the readers about all the publishing you have done?

Did you ever receive compensation for these published pieces?

And, perhaps you could share which of your prior political forecasts were correct. And, of those that were correct, just what research methods did you use to draw such conclusions.
