Pocahontas.com Directs To Elizabeth Warren’s Website

Published

on

As of Tuesday, Pocahontas.com now directs to Elizabeth Warren’s website Elizabethwarren.com.

Insiders say it is unclear what caused the domain arrangement.

President Trump’s remarks criticizing Warren for falsely claiming Native American heritage to further her career at Penn and Harvard Law Schools are the subject of great media attention:

Trending: DOCUMENT: Peter Strzok Was CIA And FBI At The Same Time, Say Experts

As I reported for The American Spectator in 2012:

Democratic Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren took the stage alone at the Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel in Boston last night to deliver her acceptance speech after defeating incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown 53 to 47 percent. She resorted to many of the same divisive talking points that she’s utilized throughout her campaign, riling up her supporters by feverishly clapping along to her own emphatic statements.

“For every family that has been chipped and squeezed and hammered, we’re going to fight for a level playing field,” she vowed. She spoke about a “system rigged,” about holding the “big guys” accountable, about making sure that the “millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share,” and she thanked her supporters for teaching “a scrappy first-time candidate how to get into the ring and win.”

And then came a moment largely unprecedented, even in modern politics. “You took on the powerful Wall Street banks and special interests and you let them know you want a senator who will be out there fighting for the middle class all of the time,” Warren thundered as her supporters let out their loudest and most forceful cheer. Last night, we witnessed a Harvard Law School professor defeat an Army National Guard Colonel in his own home state and then disparage him in her victory speech.

“And to the young people…” she began, but it doesn’t really matter what she told them next. Her words and actions, as a candidate and as a careerist, have already sent a pretty clear message to those young people, about how to carry themselves as individuals and about how to get ahead in this life. She’s probably right when she calls herself the intellectual godmother of my generation, because based on everything I’ve seen in my travels thus far, her message has not fallen on deaf young ears.

My Twitter feed, God bless it, quickly filled up with Warren supporters expressing happiness the only way they know how.
“Entire Scott Brown campaign: Elizabeth Warren is a professor (in Mass) and she’s not Native American. Heckuva job, Brownie” tweeted Berkeley-based Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas.

“Elizabeth Warren can never take Scott Brown’s ‘America’s Sexiest Man (1982)’, as determined by Cosmopolitan magazine, away from him,” chimed in the official Twitter feed of New York-based Vanity Fair magazine.
“Scott Brown has that truck, so it’s no sweat moving,” quipped Los Angeles talk show host Bill Maher.

And note the order of things in this one, from TV actress Eliza Dushku: “Scott Brown is OUT!! #ElizabethWarren we love you!”
Scott Brown gave his concession speech at Boston’s Park Plaza Hotel.

“You’ve got no business in politics unless you respect the judgment of people, and if you run for office you’ve got to be able to take it, either way, winning or losing,” Brown said, surrounded on stage by dozens of friends and family. He told his supporters not to boo Elizabeth Warren, assuring them, in his first political lie, “She won it fair and square.”
“I kept my promise to you… and I have never, ever, ever, regretted any decision I’ve ever made for you. You sent me to Washington to be my own man, and I am returning my own man.”

He added: “I’m kind of psyched that you guys hung around.”

Why wouldn’t they? Most Massachusetts people aren’t winners. They’re Red Sox fans who spent 86 years waiting for a World Series victory and grew closer together every time a ground ball went through a first baseman’s legs. They’re religious people who tell their children it doesn’t matter if they become the most successful, so long as they carry themselves with class and practice honesty and humility. They’re literary people in tune with the comedy of life and the virtue of feeling bad. And when they hear the Washington pundits talk dismissively about the “Have a beer” factor in politics — the idea that voters naturally scorn the pushiest activist candidates for the ones they’d rather have over to the house to drink too much and talk about what they’ve seen and what they’ve learned so far in this life- they say “Damn straight.”
Scott Brown did the most Massachusetts thing of all: he acted like a stand-up guy and he lost his job for it.

He can take solace in that. And the people of Massachusetts can take some solace in Elizabeth Warren’s victory: At least they won’t have to see her around for another six years.

Sebastian Gorka Blasts Trey Gowdy as ‘Grandstanding Fake’

Published

on

A national security strategist and former strategist for President Donald J. Trump blasted Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) over Gowdy’s statements to the media regarding Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland tomorrow.

“This why I can’t take Gowdy seriously,” Gorka tweeted. “The ‘great prosecutor’ had Hillary testify on Benghazi & with what result? ZIP. Now his advice 2 [President Trump] is ask former KGB colonel Putin where he can “pick up” his GRU colleagues? What a grandstanding FAKE.”

Gorka has a point. Gowdy, once known for his sharp tongue and pointed questions during the House Select Committee on Benghazi hearings, has accomplished little in his time as a Congressman.

“I would ask the president to give some serious consideration, your first request of Vladimir Putin needs to be, ‘Tell us which airport we can pick up the 25 Russians that tried to interfere with the fundamentals of our democracy,'” Gowdy told Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicted 12 Russians on Friday over alleged “hacking” of the DNC during the 2016 campaign cycle.

But the fact remains: More than 700 days have passed since the “Russian collusion” narrative was first injected into the mainstream, and not one iota of evidence exists suggesting that Trump had anything to do with Russian meddling in the election.

Still, Gowdy wants to talk tough.

“If you really claim that you had nothing to do with it, then you should be as shocked as we were that your military being used to impact our election, tell us where your going to extradite those folks because an American grand jury indicted them for undermining our democracy.”

Of course, none of that has been proven either. An indictment is not an indication of guilt. And lest we forget, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller actually indicted a Russian company that does not exist as part of his partisan witch hunt.

Yet Gowdy, a prosecutor who should indeed be a bit skeptical, seems to be taking Mueller at his word and inferring guilt from an indictment.

Gowdy talked tough at the open hearing of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok last week regarding pre-election bias in the nation’s highest law enforcement agency. Still, frustrated Americans have nothing to show for it.

He let Lisa Page, Strzok’s lover and confidante, also a disgraced FBI agent, ignore a congressional subpoena to appear before Congress on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, former Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton never faced any consequences for perjuring herself on live television during the very Benghazi hearings over which Gowdy presided, and has never been seriously investigated for any of the myriad of other misdeeds related to her scam charity, The Clinton Global Initiative.

Just another day in the swamp.
