Obama Defends Financial Reform President Barack Obama defended efforts to impose new curbs on Wall Street in his State of the Union speech but steered clear of the populist criticism of big banks that has become a mainstay of top Democrats. Mr. Obama, who has toned down his reproaches of Wall Street since winning re-election in 2012, had been expected to discuss risk-taking by big financial firms ahead of a new tax his administration plans to propose on those firms in the coming weeks, according to senior administration officials. Instead, Mr. Obama promised to veto bills "unraveling the new rules on Wall Street" adopted during his six years in office, but he didn't discuss the new tax. "Today, we have new tools to stop taxpayer-funded bailouts and a new consumer watchdog to protect us from predatory lending and abusive credit card practices," Mr. Obama said. Mr. Obama didn't take up the rhetoric of other Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), who in recent weeks have talked about the dan ...

Look at the priorities of the new Republican congressional – the Keystone XL Pipeline, the Trans-Pacific Trade agreement, tax cuts for big corporations and the wealthy, rollbacks of Dodd-Frank regulations on Wall Street, cutbacks on Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security, and decimating the Affordable Care Act – and connect the dots. Republicans want the public to think the central issue of our time is the size of government. Wrong. The central issue of our time is who government is for. Every one of their initiatives advances big corporations and Wall Street, and worsens or weakens everyone else. Elizabeth Warren is correct: The game is rigged. And the only way to unrig it is through a new progressive movement that includes not only the Democratic base but also any and all Independents and Republicans equally determined to take the economy and democracy back from the axis of Wall Street, K Street, and big corporations.

Fox host: ‘Without question, Elizabeth Warren is the devil’ and Wall Street will defeat her
WASHINGTON -- For all the anger among progressives about a Wall Street bailout provision that made its way into the just-passed $1.1 trillion government spending bill, there's been little attention on the person who put it in there. Meet Congressman Kevin Yoder (R-Kansas). Yoder, a second-term congressman whose largest contributors are in the finance industry, introduced the provision last summer. It was literally written by Citigroup executives, but Yoder took their language and rolled it into an amendment to a spending bill in a House subcommittee meeting. It got swept into the year-end spending package because it "was within the scope of negotiations" on it, according to an Appropriations Committee aide. The provision, which prompted a fiery speech by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), undoes a rule that prevents big banks from relying on the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to bail them out if things go sour when they trade risky assets. The rule was put into place as part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law, whi ...
Elizabeth Warren for President? Be careful what you wish for. There are no ordinary people. All of us are unique. The working class is what makes this country run. Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts Senator) is emerging as the “face” of liberal America. Some of the left don’t like Hillary Clinton because they think she is too socially moderate and too “hawkish” on the war on terror. So liberals are encouraging Elizabeth Warren to run for president on the Democratic ticket. Warren spent almost 20 years teaching at Harvard Law school and once claimed to be of Cherokee descent. That came back to bite her as the Boston Herald reported that she has no Native-American heritage. Nevertheless, she easily defeated Scott Brown and is now the senior senator of Massachusetts. Warren despises Wall Street and big banks, saying “they have rigged” the capitalistic system. At one time she questioned why there were no mass indictments of bankers after the economic crash in 2008. In fact, she is not a big fan o . ...
Senator Charles Shumer on CNN this morning said “the soul of the Democratic Party is the economy, and the party is united on the economy.” He’s right about the first part, but there’s no unity. Elizabeth Warren and other progressive senators are fighting for average working people. They opposed the spending bill that passed the Senate yesterday, which allows big Wall Street banks to gamble once again with commercially-insured bank deposits, thereby inviting another bailout of the Street, and allows the fattest cats, many of them on the Street, to write checks for more than a million dollars in an election cycle. Other Democrats, including the President, capitulated. There’s no unity in the party. There are two Democratic parties: the party of FDR, LBJ, Ted Kennedy, and Paul Wellstone; and the party of the corporate-financial complex.

Fox News PRESS, LEFT SWOON FOR WARREN Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is still using a strict present-tense “not running” as her answer to questions about her possible presidential ambitions. But that seems increasingly likely to change given the overwhelmingly positive (and generally overwhelming) coverage of her bid to harass the White House and Senate leaders over Wall Street carve outs stuffed in a fiscal-cliff spending bill. The Daily Beast called her the “most powerful Democrat in America.” The WaPo warned Warren’s moves may force 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton to alter her plans. And Warren got star treatment all up and down the major media corridor. Most remarkable is that in doing what was previously called reckless embitterment when Republican renegades did it, Warren is leading a movement in which “the Democratic Party debates its soul.” Oh dear. Somebody get the smelling salts. [Howard Kurtz writes: “She’s been a press favorite roughly forever. But by standing up to a Democ ...

So it’s a republican world for 2015. These are some new policies that are going to be passed. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform is going to be “adjusted”. The “swaps push-out rule” that was written by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sheila Bair is going to be repealed. This was one of the crucial rules that put limits on how they were going to use taxpayer backing on high-risk loans, with a few other changes that benefit Wall Street as well. The IRS looks like they are being “punished” and their budget will be cut under $4.9 billion. $300 million in Pell Grant cuts to low-income students. The money will instead be going to student loan debt collectors. Section 8 housing will be losing half a billion in housing, and will not raise with climbing rents over the years. Also there is a $300 million dollar cut on housing programs for the homeless. No “restart rules” for interstate truck drivers.

I'm doing Constitutional Law reading right now and I've noticed that sometimes sitting Presidents like to appoint current Senators to the Supreme Court. At the same time, I was talking with a friend about if an opening were to appear in the Courts during this decade, who would President Obama (or the next President) appoint to replace the vacancy? He mentioned to me Elizabeth Warren as a possible choice, and I was very surprised at his pick. Now that may be very unlikely now, and it's unlikely Senator Warren herself would agree (considering her activism in taking on Wall Street and other current policies she's advocating for), but I found it particularly interesting considering her past experience with bankruptcy law. Regardless, if a vacancy in the Court were to open in the near future, who do you think could fill it?

For my West Virginia relatives and friends, from here's a message from Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of the champions for the little guy: If you care about holding Wall Street accountable, I hope you'll take a close look at Natalie Tennant's Senate campaign in West Virginia. I know Natalie's opponent Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito from earlier fights over financial reform. Capito is chair of the House subcommittee that oversees the big banks and financial institutions, and I'll be blunt: The story isn't pretty. After the economy crashed in 2008, Congresswoman Capito fought tooth and nail to protect the big banks from financial reform. Time and again, she's tried to chip away at the Dodd-Frank Act. And she's supported legislation to gut the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, trying to turn it from watchdog to lapdog. Wall Street doesn't need another senator fighting for them in Washington. That's why I just got back from West Virginia to help Natalie Tennant. Make a donation to Natalie Tennant's ...
"Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) got a rock-star reception during a standing-room-only campaign rally in West Virgina, Monday, as hundreds of liberal activists cheered her broadsides against corporate interests and voiced hopes that her presence might shift the political winds in an increasingly Republican state," the Washington Post reports. "The rally on behalf of Senate candidate Natalie Tennant was the latest in a string of recent Warren appearances in red and blue states alike, where Democratic base voters have embraced her fiery message as an envoy to working-class voters frustrated with both Wall Street and the Obama Administration." National Journal: "It may trigger some cognitive dissonance to picture Warren in one of the reddest states on the 2014 Senate map--but the freshman senator from Massachusetts has nothing to lose and everything to gain by helping out Democratic candidates in important races this year, particularly if she's considering a national campaign in 2016 or beyond."
Joseph Lawler Sen. Elizabeth Warren grilled Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen Tuesday on an important provision of the law intended to prevent banks from becoming too big to fail, illuminating the ambiguous status of regulators' attempts to defend against the financial crisis. At the end of Yellen's semi-annual monetary policy testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, the Massachusetts Democrat asked Yellen about a provision of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law that requires big banks to submit "living wills" to regulators spelling out in advance how they would be safely resolved in the case of a crisis without triggering a system-wide panic. If the Fed determines that a bank's living will is not credible, according to the law, it has the power to force the bank to revise and resubmit its plan, raise capital standards, and in the last-case scenario even force it to sell off assets — that is, break it up. Warren, a consistent critic of Wall Street, noted that the largest U.S. bank, JPMo ...

Don’t blame decades of deregulation that took the cops off the beat while the big banks looted the American economy. Don’t blame the Republican Secretary of the Treasury, and the Republican president who set in motion a no-strings-attached bailout for the biggest banks – Nope. Paul Ryan says keep the monies flowing to the powerful corporations, keep their huge tax breaks, keep the special deals for the too-big-to-fail banks and put the blame on hardworking, play-by-the-rules Americans who lost their jobs.

If Paul Ryan really cared about lifting folks out of poverty he’d target Wall Street culture like Elizabeth Warren
A letter from Elizabeth Warren "Self-serving and hypocritical" Elizabeth Warren Mar 18 at 10:26 AM I have good news and bad news. The good news: This weekend, we raised more than $40,000 to help Jeanne Shaheen beat Scott Brown in New Hampshire – surpassing our $25,000 goal. Now the bad news: Karl Rove's Super PAC just announced that it's spending $600,000 on a new round of ads attacking our friend Jeanne. We know first-hand how aggressive, relentless, and deceptive Scott Brown's attacks can be. And now he's signed on to get the dirtiest, most secretive help he can find to attack Jeanne Shaheen. So we need to fight back. We're not going to be able to put together $600,000 as quickly as Karl Rove's anonymous billionaire and corporate friends – but we can still make an important difference. Can we double our goal and raise $50,000 for Jeanne? Make a donation to fight back against the efforts of Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and the Republican Party to get Scott Brown back in the U.S. Senate. You may rem ...

Elizabeth Warren is great, people are wary because she's new. She's confronting Wall Street, no one has ever done that.
Huge Selection of Helmets at Low Prices
Addressing Progressive complaints: Elizabeth Warren has already said clearly that she is staying put in the Senate and will not run for president in 2016. She is working on the big banks and Wall Street and feels that is where she can be most effective right now. She is right. She signed a letter with a group of D women in Congress, asking Hillary to run. If you missed the whole story of Republican obstructionism of Obama and Harry Reid the dawdling old fart who let it happen, there's years of catching up to do. Obama is a centrist and always has been a centrist and I have NO idea why I figured that out and voted for him twice anyway but Progressives are so in shock. Do Progressives not read or listen to speeches or what. Voting third party is a total waste of time. I tried it with John Anderson and Ross Perot, and told myself that I was "sending a message." No, I wasn't. I was strengthening the right wing. I finally came to my senses. I remain an independent but I fight the right wing every way I know ** ...

'If a settlement is so weak that Wall Street is celebrating with pay raises, it's not a good deal for the American People.' Elizabeth Warren, Reader Supported News
Words about liberals the past years...why I speak out still and so should you. If we don't remember these things they could easily get started up all over again. Look at what happened in early December with the Third Way attack on Elizabeth Warren. Hunter at Daily Kos wrote about why this happened. He posted a chart showing the Board of Trustees of the Third Way. He labeled it. Why the Third Way hates Senator Elizabeth Warren The obsessive centrists of the punditverse were abuzz today with praise for supposed centrist Democratic organization Third Way and their grumbling op-ed condemnation of Democratic liberal populism in abstract and "economic populists" like Sen. Elizabeth Warren in particular. But why would the Third Way, a very reasonable and centrist organization that just wants both parties to get along and agree to cut Social Security, Medicare, and other social programs be so very worked up about Elizabeth Warren, Wall Street Reform, and the mere thought of breaking up large banks? Worked up enou ...
“Somebody must challenge from the left, because, I mean, Hillary Clinton, who started out as a progressive out of Yale Law School and Wellesley, she’s become almost the poster child for the military-industrial complex... She hugs Kissinger. She hobnobs with Bob Rubin and the Wall Street crowd. I mean it’s almost a caricature. But you know on social issues, like pro-choice, children’s issues, you know she keeps that liberal sheen.” “In the primary I see [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren. I could see [Sen.] Sherrod Brown. I could see a few members of Congress, of the House, but they are very, very skittish about challenging the dominant players in their party,” ~ Ralph Nader
Predictions for 2014: (1) The federal minimum wage will be raised to $10.50, (2) Congress won’t shut down the Federal Government, (3) Congress won’t pass anything significant on immigration reform, gun safety, or tax reform, (4) Republican Senate and House primaries starting in March will intensify the GOP civil war, which will grow even more heated throughout the year, (5) Americans will forget how badly the rollout of Obamacare was botched, and by year’s end a majority will support it, (6) Hillary Clinton won’t yet declare for president and speculation will increase about Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, (7) Democrats will retain control over the Senate and Republicans will retain control over he House in the midterm elections (8) The Dow will close 10 percent lower by year’s end than it was at the start, (9) Wall Street will be rocked by a huge insider-trading scandal, and (10) Both parties will tout strategies to reverse widening inequality, which will have grown worse. Your predictions?
Robert, Not that long ago, Republicans, the corporate media, and centrist Democrats were locked together in an unholy alliance that was pushing the Wall Street agenda on the entire country. It seemed like we only heard one thing from Washington: that we needed to reduce the deficit, and that hardworking Americans would have to pay the price. My how things have changed. Now the United States Senate is talking about the need for real banking reform and the need to expand Social Security. And it didn't happen by accident -- progressives made it happen. We elected Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, and Chris Murphy to the United States Senate. And we reelected Bernie Sanders and Sherrod Brown. Now it's time to start building our next electoral victories. Today, we are uniting to support three terrific candidates up in 2014: Alison Lundergan Grimes, Al Franken, and Jeff Merkley. Our goal is to raise 1,000 grassroots contributions before their campaigns' reporting deadlines, and we're already 80% of the way the ...

Duffy is a Tea Party Republican who became vulnerable after the government shutdown. He claims that he "struggles" to live on $174,000 a year -- that's the world he comes from. Kelly says, "I believe in a representative democracy. It's time for regular people to take power back from big-money interests and to have ownership of our government again."

Everyone watch out for this "Third Way" group. Thom Hartmann read a list of their board of directors. Out of 16 or 17 names, 12 of them were Investment Bankers, and the other five didn't have their occupation listed. They are pretending to be a "middle path," between progressive and conservative ideology, but they are actually a bunch of wealthy bankers and brokers trying to undermine the progressive wave that is overtaking this country. Below is a quote from a recent article from Bold Progressives about the WSJ attack on Elizabeth Warren: "Third Way admits they attacked Warren because her populist agenda (like Social Security expansion) was becoming too "viable" and "getting out of hand." This past week, corporate-funded think tank Third Way attacked Elizabeth Warren in Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal -- saying her bold economic populism is "dangerous for Democratic Party." Wrong! Polls show Warren's ideas are popular in red, purple, and blue states. That's why Wall Street fears her."
I think Elizabeth Warren is awesome!!! Her voice should be loud and strong, we should help pipe it over the lies of the GOP...think of the baby boomers who are fooled by the GOP into thinking they are somehow protected, just because in the past the GOP stood for the Grand Old Party, and that's the way they always voted. Well, things are changing in our country, and we must accept change, but we must protect ourselves and be ever vigilant to the wiles of the Tea Party strategist and the Republican who would pick our pocket to take that dime and put it in the pocket of the Wall Street banker. So, I say, BULLY FOR ELIZABETH WARREN! LISTEN TO HER! SIGN HER DARNED PETITION...EXPAND Social Security. Pfui on Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Eric Cantor. Steve King, Mike Lee, John Boehner, Mitch Mcconnell and the rest of them. They are all millionaires who dance to the tune of special interest groups. Let them dance to the tune of America instead!

Obama has left other dilemmas for liberals. He was the largest recipient of Goldman Sachs and BP money in history. His financial team — notably Peter Orszag, who left the administration for Citigroup, and Jack Lew, who came to the administration from Citigroup — are proverbial revolving-door Wall Street fat cats who, in the parlance of Occupy Wall Street and Elizabeth Warren, did not really build their own wealth. It will be hard to take seriously any future liberal critique of a Republican cozying up to Wall Street. In other areas, hypocrisy gives way to incoherence. Obama seems to oppose fracking and horizontal drilling on public lands, but he cites private development as proof that his administration has done more to promote U.S. fossil-fuel production than any other in history. In terms of the deficit, forced sequestration is damned as reckless and yet becomes the basis for bragging about reductions in the deficit. The Middle Class? In terms of disposable income, jobs, and per capita net worth, th ...
Yellen signals new emphasis on Fed policing role The next Federal Reserve chief appears set to direct the central bank's might at ensuring financial stability and stern banking oversight with the same vigor it currently applies to its traditional mandates of fostering price stability and maximum employment. The question of monitoring and stabilizing Wall Street was a dominant issue during Fed chair-designate Janet Yellen's confirmation hearing before a Senate committee on Thursday. Yellen, widely expected to win Senate backing for the job, said Financial Regulation should be on par with monetary policymaking on the Fed's list of priorities. The central bank's current vice chair, Yellen appeared willing to draw fellow governors on the powerful Fed Board into more decisions on stabilizing the still-vulnerable financial system. In a telling exchange with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Yellen said it was a "worthwhile idea" to consider reinstating regular board meetings to tackle financial supervision, as was the cas ...
"3 words that strike terror in the hearts of Wall Street bankers and corporate executives"
I bet a lot of Wall Street execs had major heartburn when they heard Sen Elizabeth Warren may run for Pres in 2016.
It's My Party, and I'll Cry If I Want To The Democratic Party represents Wall Street. The GOP has gone full On John Bircher with the Tea Party, to the extent that a GOP friendly state like Maine has now become part of the progressive "left". The state of Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, "Liberal"?? In today's political spectrum, yup. Always considered somewhat independent, the voters of Maine replaced Olympia Snowe with capital "I" Independent, Angus King, who is very much a capital "P" Progressive on many issues, such as free trade, the National Security / surveillance state, economic populism, militarism and the Bill of Rights. Moderate Republicans and REAL Democrats have been marginalized by the leadership of both parties. It is obvious that there is far less of a rift between the Tea Party and current GOP leaders like John Boehner, than there is between people like Gene Sperling, Rahm Emanuel and Elizabeth Warren. There is far less hostility among the GOP establishment for people like Rand Paul and M ...

We have to do better or quit and accept the fact that we're all toast, done, finished, kaput.
“It’s five years this month since the collapse of the Financial Services firm Lehman Brothers, and we’re still waiting on the perp walk of a millionaire to jail.” I wrote in my Thursday column – just posted in my online archives: Big Banks have gotten too big, said U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who’s criticized U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for failing to fully investigate or prosecute Wall Street and condemned the U.S. Supreme Court as a “subsidiary of Big Business.” Warren said Big Banks should not be “too big to fail or, for that matter, too big to manage, too big to regulate, too big for trial, or too big for jail.”

Elizabeth Warren: Get Wall Street out of our savings accounts Morning Joe interview 9 minutes
I know somebody needs some budding Clarence Darrow type lawyers. Elizabeth Warren needs a coupla brilliant young legal minds to help her dissect Wall Street and all the political and bureaucratic institutions that protect it. There is no more worthy cause for the justice system than for it to become truly just. And there is no better leader than to have Senator Elizabeth Warren leading a powerful lobby of lawyers to a completely independent investigation of Wall Street and the Federal Reserve. If people actually want the truth about why we have endless wars, poverty and economic disaster...that is the job that needs to be done. And it will take several extraordinarily courageous attorneys and a legion of supporters, especially an enlightened pubic to get it done.
By continuing to work within the parameters of our current political system we’re electing the officials who are selling us out to Wall Street over and over again. Different names, different faces….same results. At this point, I believe in one politician and that’s Bernie Sanders of Vermont. He speaks for the people on most of the major issues. As for Elizabeth Warren and her proposal to cut interest rates for students, it’s a betrayal of the work force of tomorrow that works tirelessly to make the rich richer. Education in this country and the world should be completely free of charge. Why shouldn’t students go into massive debt to operate the mechanisms of production that make the elites obscenely wealthy? All the tuition and fees that are being paid at schools like Arizona State University and other schools are just taxes levied against students that wind up in the pockets of the fat cats running the show behind the scenes and forcing the students into massive debt and, hence, conformity and ...

Avarice and greed are still sins, right? My Republican cat, Gingy seems to think that they're not anymore--that sometime during the Bush administration, A and G, became positive personality traits... that somehow, what was a cautionary line of dialogue from the film "Wall Street," that "greed is good," got twisted around and became an ideal for living... like the rednecks who used to think Carroll O'Connor's character, Archie Bunker, in "All In The Family," wasn't satirizing bigotry, misogyny and racism--that he was in fact defending it. Elizabeth Warren wants to put the big banks on trail, which I think is a great idea. I would like to see them not only be put on trail, but I'd like to see the people in charge serve time in really, really severe hardcore prisons--not the Tom DeLay, white collar country club prisons--but the really hard core lock ups: Sodomy Correctional Institution, Bufu Penitentiary, Shiv Jail, etc...

Les grandes banques ont déclenché une crise économique sans précédent, elles manipulent les marchés financiers par des algorithmes informatiques et elles viennent d'obtenir l'impunité : By Darrell Delamaide WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Attorney General Eric Holder, the top U.S. law-enforcement official, finally admitted this week that bank executives truly are above the law and may commit crimes with virtual impunity. Appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Holder acknowledged under questioning by Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the ranking member, that the megabanks are too big to jail. “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them,” Holder said.

Though she is being coy about it, as is her want, Hillary Clinton wants to be president and is already running for the Offal Office. Soon the imperial gush machine, seeing in her the perfect successor to the Pied Piper-an unabashed chicken hawk and pal to Wall Street, will start the chorus of "isn't it about time we had a woman president? She is the progressive choice". Thus her candidacy will be equated with any progressive's feminist bona fides. Well here's the answer to that steaming bowl of gush, How about Elizabeth Warren for president instead.

No witnesses spoke up so she asked again. Finally Thomas Curry, head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, spoke up: "We've actually had a fair number of consent orders. We do not have to bring people to a trial..." Warren responded saying "I appreciate that you say you don't... ~GeeK3r

Wall Street, Your Worst Nightmare Won The Massachusetts Senate Race Linette Lopez | Nov. 6, 2012, 9:44 PM | 8,821 | 36 inShare 10 Email More scottbrownma via YouTube Elizabeth Warren has taken Scott Brown's Senate seat in Massachusetts, news outlets are projecting. This is a major victory for Democrats. Brown, a Republican, is best known for destroying the Democrat's former majority in the Senate when he took the late Ted Kennedy's seat. And Wall Street knows what Elizabeth Warren is best known for. A former Harvard Law professor and bankruptcy expert, she made waves in Washington as an outspoken critic of Wall Street during and after the financial crisis. She was also considered to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau but was passed over in favor of former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray. And if that isn't enough to scare Wall Street, check out this bit from Warren's Democratic National Convention speech: People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: the ...
Wall Street is also afraid because the brain for the Occupy WS Movement, Elizabeth Warren (who never answered a question during her campaign) unseated Scott Brown in Mass.
"Here’s the litmus test to watch: On what committee and at what rank will the Senate put Elizabeth Warren? Will she be named head of the Senate Banking Committee? Will she even be on it? Is she an embarrassment to Democratic fund-raisers on Wall Street – or window dressing to help give the impression that the Party really is other than crypto-Republican." Michael Hudson
But make no mistake: Change did happen. Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had barely gotten started meeting its charge to protect Main Street from Wall Street, and would have seen its power sharply reduced under Romney. Now the CFPB gets a real chance to put its nose to the grindstone and carry out its mandate. Elizabeth Warren will enjoy actual power. President Obama’s leverage to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich has never been higher. Wall Street hasn’t changed and won’t change, but its favorite son, its great private equity hope, is now a footnote to history. We can build on this.
Scarborough Maine. November 7. I am thrilled with the election results. I know Elizabeth Warren to be a woman who will kick the Wall Street princes around for the poor and the working class.

All day yesterday I kept looking at the photographs of our president's beautiful family, and thinking how fortunate we are to have them representing our nation, and to have their husband and father fighting for our children against the circus clowns like Limbaugh, O'Reily, Beck, Trump and Lundquist, and true pigs like Karl Rove who even looks like a pig, and teaparty morons like Michele Bachman and her husband who claim they can "fix homosexuals," and lamebrains like the two republican leaders who recently claimed to be rape experts ...
This is part of the reason we elected Elizabeth Warren. Liz will be a NIGHTMARE for Wall Street and the Wall Street bankers and other shysters. Obama originally wanted Elizabeth to head up his Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an agency she helped create. The Republicans raised *** over this, and BLOCKED her appointment. So she started running for Massachusetts senator, and Obama picked Richard Cordray to run the CFPB. Republicans STILL raised *** and blocked HIS appointment, so Obama used a "recess appointment" to appoint Cordray to the post, and Republicans came UNGLUED. NOW, they're gonna have to deal with BOTH Cordray AND Warren. ALL *** IS GONNA BREAK LOOSE on Wall Street. Probably gonna be some folks going to JAIL. I CAN'T WAIT!!! BRING IT ON!
This Is the Worst Election for Wall Street in Decades by Tim Fernholz at the Atlantic Clinton and George W. Bush pursued financial de-regulation, Barack Obama bailed out Wall Street in 2008, and 2010 brought in a much more bank-friendly Congress. But 2012? Well, so far, Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard academic and financial regulator, is projected to be elected to the Senate from Massachusetts. That august body filibustered her appointment to run the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, the newly-created bank watchdog that she essentially invented, so now she's now joining the old boys club. Expect her to be a major voice on financial rules, whether or not she ends up on the Senate Banking Committee. And though she worked briefly for President Obama, she's an Equal Opportunity populist: As the chair of the committee that oversaw the TARP bailouts, she had plenty of harsh words for Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner. Another major critic of the banks, controversial Democratic Representative Alan Grayson ...
I think those who overestimated Romney's chances are reasonably relieved at Obama's re-election, but I don't see any reason to celebrate at the prospect of four more years of pandering to Wall Street, persecution of whistle-blowers, extra-judicial killing, and state-sponsored terrorism. Where we do have reason to be quietly optimistic is in the election of people like Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown, in the fact that in Maryland and in Maine the right to same-sex marriage was affirmed, and in the thought that this election might finally mark the end of a Republican Party that believes it can gain office by ignoring the interests of all except privileged white male voters. I would like to think that this election cycle will also be remembered as the high-water mark for the blatant disregard of truth in campaigning, campaign reporting, and punditry. It was nice to see all the *** Morrises, George Wills, and Peggy Noonans swept away by the dispassionate statistical analysis of Nate Silver and Sam Wang.
When the smoke clears from last night, Republicans will realize the biggest thorn in their side is not Barak Obama. He has 4 years in office and then another President will take over. It is Elizabeth Warren that will top their "most wanted" list. This is not your garden variety, circus clown politician. She is a highly intelligent, rational, well connected woman that knows the financial system backwards and forwards.and she has an ax to grind. On top of that, she was elected from a Blue dog State, which means as long as she does not really, really screw up (see: what Ted Kennedy did and was retained over and over), she has a gig for life. I have already heard from some friends on Wall Street. They are not happy about Obama being reelected, but they are quaking in their shoes over Elizabeth Warren. In 3-4 years, she will be the most powerful figure for the Financial Services industry on Capital Hill.

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren said Sunday on a call with volunteers that restoring Glass-Steagall, the depression-era finance rule that prevented banks from becoming “too big to fail,” would be among the top three Wall Street Reforms on her agenda if voters elect her to the Senate.
A message to Massachusetts voters from Ted Kennedy, Jr.: As you can imagine, the Massachusetts Senate race means a lot to me. But it’s not because my father once held this seat. It’s because my father’s dream lives on – and because his work is not yet complete. My father fought his entire working life to ensure every American could live out the American Dream. As a Senator, he worked for decades to defend the defenseless, hold powerful interests to account, and move America forwards in our long march towards equality. That’s what mattered to my dad. He never cared about this seat being held by someone named Kennedy. But he cared a lot about this seat passing to someone who would continue his fight for justice. That’s what matters to me, too. And that’s why I’m doing everything I can to help elect Elizabeth Warren as the next Senator from Massachusetts. Elizabeth has earned our support over years of tireless work on behalf of Middle Class families. She understands that if we want to succeed ...

Still watching Michael Moore's film on Current TV. I say let's nominate Eliot Spitzer, former sheriff of Wall Street, for President and Marcy Kaptur for VP. Elizabeth Warren for Treasury Sec.
Borrowed from New Yorker. Here is Obama, the man of the People, the protector of the poor and Middle Class, the Messiah who fight the rich lol Wall Street never had a better friend than President Obama. He's protected them every step of the way, with plenty of inside guidance from Timmy Geithner, Larry Summers, Jacky Lew and others. No prosecutions (listen sometime to Lanny Brueur explain how hard it is to find evidence!). Allowing the Fed to run a secret parallel give-away program for Wall Street that was even bigger than the original bail-out. Behind the scenes Obama was working to weaken Dodd-Frank, which is ridiculously complex, with the detailed rules being written by banking lobbyists. And don't forget Obama is very afraid of smart women who want to tell the truth about financial insiders, finding no place for Sheila Bair, Elizabeth Warren, or Brooskley Born.
Not one talks to the American People directly, its all politician talk. Talking points. Nothing real. Its not like Dennis Kucinch, Alan Grayson, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Ron Paul, talk like. They talk like real people, not plastic cardboard cut outs. Nobody talks about Wall Street, the crimes of derivatives, GMO, the corruption in washington, democrats and republicans stealing from food stamp funds, the New Deal, oh I dont know WAR, predator drones, Civil Liberties.
In his debate with Elizabeth Warren last night, Senator Scott Brown struck an odd pose—as a Wall Street Reformer. Just as Mitt Romney dishonestly did during last week’s presidential debate, Brown was attempting to re-upholster an ugly record of helping out the country’s largest financial instituti...
Murray and I will be watching the second debate tonight between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown. Do us a favor...don't just listen to those bogus ads on TV about Warren that Brown has been spewing...she is a great candicate for US Senate and although Scott Brown says he is "for the people" look at his record...all about supporting the Wall Street gang and Big Oil. Not for women's rights and certainly not who I want representing me in DC. Watch and see!
Wataching a documentary "Heist: Who Stole the American Dream" on Link TV (Direct TV Cable). It started with Elizabeth Warren explaining that there had been a financial bust and boom from 1794 until now and that Pres. Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal in the 1930s helped pull the U.S. out of the Great Depression and sought to make sure the common people would be taken care of by creating 1) the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) to make sure the govt. would reimburse depositors for their money (up to a limit) in a bank if the bank failed; 2) Unemployment Insurance (so if employees got laid off, they would receive some money to keep them going until either they were rehired by their company or found a new job (and companies pay into this program while you are employed there to cover you in case of bad times), and 3) Glass-Steagall Act to make sure the community bank wasn't risking depositers' money on Wall Street. So far so good. The doc goes on to talk about how Republicans have ruined the country th ...
Gary L,Elizabeth Warren sent a heartfelt email to supporters. We wanted to make sure you saw it:Republicans are flooding Scott Brown with Wall Street money...I was thinking about the very first contest we had in the campaign -- figuring out what should be printed on the back of our Elizabeth-for-Senate T-shirts. The winning slogan: The best senator money can't buy. I love that sentence -- the best senator money...
While the economy is strumming along happily (according to the Dow Jones average, soaring above 13,000), for most of the rest of us, jobs, wages, benefits, home-ownership, and Middle Class opportunities continue to plummet. While the financial elite, political leaders, corporate run media, and Nieman Marcus are rapturous over the Dow, they all continue to ignore the precipitous decline of the average American. And those who are back to work are taking hits in pay, benefits, and retirement, wacking away at the American Dream. "Knocking down the Middle Class is economically stupid" Elizabeth Warren has been telling us for eight years. But the predatory corporatists and politicians who represent them aren't listening. One of the reasons the stock market is dong so well is due to the high tech rise of robots replacing workers. Corporations are building hundreds of fully robotocized manufacturing plants to replace humans, and Wall Street is giddy. And gung *** world trade enthusiast and Obama supporter Tom F ...
Earlier today, Scott Brown challenged Elizabeth Warren's assertion that she is of mixed ancestry including that of two Native American tribes. He claimed that she checked the Native American box in her application to Penn and Harvard and thus obtained unwarranted advantage. Scott Brown has no paper trail evidence of his accusations. Elizabeth Warren responded by relating the way her parents and relatives had told her of her ancestry. She also denied ever taking advantage of her ancestry--quite believable when you realize that Native Americans were the first genocide victims in this country. Scott Brown's votes in Congress have been indicative of his close ties to Wall Street and right wing Republicans of which he is one in spite of his allegations that he is moderate. I believe his early dig at Warren's ancestry was an ad hominem ploy to distract viewers away from his own record. Elizabeth Warren is of the opposite end of the political spectrum and has been a thorn in the side of Wall Street types. I ...
Yolanda, The latest poll numbers are in, and Joe Donnelly has opened a narrow lead over Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock, 45% to 42%. This is great news – but it also paints a huge target on Joe’s back for Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and their Wall Street backers heading into the final weeks of the campaign. The only way we can hang on to this lead through the coming onslaught of vicious, misleading secret-donor backed attacks is to make sure Joe has the resources to fight back against every lie, distortion and smear they throw at us. Click here to contribute $5 to Joe Donnelly right now. Last week, the nonpartisan Cook Political Report officially rated our race as a “toss up,” and New York Times election analyst Nate Silver said that contributing to Joe has an 8-times greater impact that a contribution to Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.

Another way of looking at the Romney Campaign is as a "Leveraged Buyout". The investors in the Romney hedge fund are Sheldon Aledson, the Koch Bros, Bob Perry, the Hampton, Miami,.. donor parties, etc. They are looking for a return on their investment, big time. Romney has demonstrated his competence in that sphere. Is there any reason that that is not his goal? After 4 years there will be an IPO of our company (I mean our country) and the debt ridden corpse of this country will be handed back to us. Look at his adviser next. The bailout of the banks by TARP was supposed to aid the mortgagees, but the Tim Geithner Treasury Department aggressively ignored that part of Congress' mandate. Shela Bair, Elizabeth Warren, and Neil Barofsky were all stonewalled and disparaged by Larry Sumners, Tim Geithner etal for their concerns about Main Street. The Wall Street infiltration of Washington is complete. This will continue with Romney. We should look at this election as the GOP candidate for the Sheriff of Notting ...
Warren: DNC star, Mass. underdog By David Catanese - 9/4/12 @ 8:07 AM ET Elizabeth Warren will take the stage in Charlotte on Wednesday night feted as one of the Democratic Party’s brightest stars, a heroine of the progressive left and potential presidential material. Back in Massachusetts, Warren might not even make it past her first run for office. To the amazement of many in her party, Warren enters the fall home stretch against Republican Sen. Scott Brown behind in polls, trailing among independents and even failing to lock down her own party. (Also on POLITICO: 5 landmines for Dems in Charlotte) The sharp-tongued consumer advocate and Harvard Law professor is struggling to connect with working-class swing voters, many of whom seem more comfortable with Brown and his middle-of-the-road, regular-guy persona. Her fierce criticism of Wall Street has sent some Democratic Bay State financial types scurrying into Brown’s camp, too. It’s the tale of two Elizabeth Warrens: the conscience of the left for ...
"She [Elizabeth Warren] said she and President Barack Obama want a country in which “everyone is held accountable. Where no one can steal your purse on Main Street, or your pension on Wall Street. “ That's an interesting claim when Attorney General Holder, Obama's enforcer, just "whitewashed" Wall Street... the same Holder who has prosecuted fewer financial, white collar crimes than any AG in the last 30 years...
The following is a transcript of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's speech at the Democratic National Convention on Sept.
This was submitted by one of my friends in rebuttal to a bias article supporting Scott Brown. In defending Elizabeth Warren's record, she cited her sources, like the scholar she is. This prompted an immediate reaction from some far-right jerk talked about her remarks being "libelous". These guys never see anything they do as libel. I've posted it here. Please support Sheri with your comments: Mark, I just read your editorial in this week’s WEBSTER TIMES. I would be fascinated to hear the factual evidence for your conclusion that Scott Brown has represented “the People” in the Senate. I did not live in Massachusetts for the last Senate election, so I have made it a priority to do my homework before I cast a vote this time. From researching Scott Brown’s voting record, I have learned the following: He has consistently worked to protect Wall Street rather than Main Street. Scott Brown is reportedly the largest recipient in the Senate of Wall Street donations, so his stance against Main Street sho ...

I just sent Elizabeth Warren some money in her fight against Wall Street bootlicker Scott Brown. I you would like to contribute send donation to: Elizabeth for Massachusetts, PO Box 961919, Boston MA. 02196.
Below is from Elizabeth Warren's website. It will come as no surprise to anyone that I am supporting her. I do like what she says here and therefore I share: There are plenty of people in Washington looking out for the billion dollar corporations and lobbying for Wall Street. I've been an outsider, but for years, I've been fighting for Middle Class families, taking on big banks, putting forward new ideas, and working to turn those ideas into a reality that makes a difference for people. That's what I'll keep doing once I'm in the U.S. Senate. I'll be there fighting for small businesses and Middle Class families. I want you to know what I believe, where I stand, and what I'll fight for as your United States Senator. I want to help rebuild America's Middle Class. I want people who work hard and play by the rules to have real opportunities to get ahead. I want us to build a better tomorrow for ourselves and our children. During the Great Depression and the years after World War II, our country made two rema ...
