CNN - Chris Cillizza
Elizabeth Warren just had her best moment of the 2020 campaign

(CNN) It's been a bit of a rough start for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's 2020 presidential campaign.

She's been hounded by her botched handling of claims of Native American heritage and has watched as fellow senators like Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris have zoomed past her in the early jockeying for the chance to take on President Donald Trump next November.

Which makes what happened Monday night in Jackson, Mississippi, very important for Warren and her supporters. At a CNN-sponsored town hall, Warren delivered a very strong performance in which her policy chops, which we knew about, were bolstered by the powerful -- and emotional -- re-telling of her childhood struggles. ...

For most voters, Warren was just a jumble of policy proposals before Monday night. She is a self-admitted policy wonk who has put her meaty policy prescriptions front and center in the campaign. But voters don't choose a candidate based solely on policy papers. If they did, every president would be a former think-tanker. Who the candidate is, really, plays an absolutely critical role in the presidential decision. At root, people usually vote for president based on a belief that the person they are choosing "gets" them in some fundamental way. ...

Warren's powerful delivery of her childhood struggles Monday was on national TV and in primetime. Lots and lots of people either saw it live, watched a snippet of it on social media or read about it on a website just like this one. That matters. To win a presidential nomination, you have to be able to perform when the bright lights come on and everyone is watching.

DVR'd it and I am watching it now. She is powerful. She is thrillingly liberal. Love the fact that she held this in Jackson, MI. before a strongly liberal and AA audience.
The R party will go after her like a pack of vicious velociraptors.

Jackson, MS (Mississippi) not MI (Michigan), and that may be the first time we've ever been called strongly liberal. All my friends who went are still raving about it and I'm kicking myself for not going. It was a sort of invitation only thing (ticketed or something?) and I had already made plans before I got mine. The Rs are losing their minds over the fact that media (other than CNN of course) were excluded. They just cannot grasp that this was a sponsored town hall and not a debate. It is to them, censorship of the highest order.

I had lunch with a couple of retired coworkers on Tuesday. We all work/worked for an evil too big to fail bank that Warren loves to attack. The consensus was that Warren could get employees at the companies she's threatening on her side if she talked about how many jobs in our companies are being offshored. This was an interesting discussion on Tuesday. On Wednesday, it became real when our manager announced she was hiring five people to work in our department in Manila. These would be good, solidly middle-class jobs in the USA, but they're being shoved off to the Philippines. I sent Sen. Warren an email that morning telling her I was an employee at "evil too big to fail bank" and pointing out that offshoring of good middle-class jobs is a serious issue.

For the record, I'm looking for another job at the evil too big to fail bank because I have a bad feeling about this.

I would think the idea of breaking up the evil too big to fail banks would also play pretty well if presented the right way.

Lots of people stuck middle management and below would get a chance to move up if every 2 trillion plus dollar bank became ten or so 200 billion dollar banks.

CNBC
Beto O’Rourke is getting all the attention, but Elizabeth Warren’s economic policy proposals are leading the 2020 pack

About 14,000 more families would pay taxes on estates worth over $7 million. That would finance 3 million new affordable housing units for low-income families.

The 75,000 richest families would pay a 2 percent tax on the value of their wealth above $50 million; the 900 families worth more than $1 billion would pay another 1 percent. That would finance child care and early childhood education for 12 million kids under 5 — free of charge for families below 200 percent of the poverty line.

Workers would gain more clout by acquiring the power to elect 40 percent of large corporate boards. Consumers would face technology behemoths a little smaller than today. Corporations could not wield influence by hiring ex-lawmakers and Cabinet members to lobby the government on their behalf.

Each of these proposals from Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren would be difficult to enact, at best. Each would arouse fierce opposition from those who would pay the bill, including the economic titans of Wall Street.

And, in addition to being difficult to enact, several of the proposals seem constitutionally dubious - particularly given recent precedent on the applicability of the 1st Amendment to corporations.

The best laid Dem plans will go nowhere unless we elect a Senate and House that is friendly to a Dem administration. Obstructionism seems to be the Republican way of life, now matter how it destroys our country. This needs to change as well as tossing that worthless sack of bran out of the White House.

CNN
Elizabeth Warren's finance director leaving campaign

(CNN)Michael Pratt, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren's finance director, is in the process of leaving Warren's presidential campaign as a result of the senator's recent decision to swear off soliciting money from wealthy donors during the primaries, according to a Warren campaign aide.

The aide told CNN Sunday morning that Pratt was "still a consultant but winding things down and transitioning out since we made the decision not to have (Warren) do high dollar events."

News of the departure came at the close of the first quarter fundraising deadline. In the coming days, a more complete picture of the Warren campaign's fundraising efforts is expected to come into focus. Her team has so far not released any early fundraising numbers, raising speculation that she is lagging behind her competitors.

The New York Times reported Sunday that Pratt resigned after a Valentine's Day meeting in Washington that eventually "grew heated," in which Pratt "noted that campaigns often collapse when they run out of money and pleaded with her not to cut off a significant cash stream."

"He pointed out that winning over wealthy fund-raisers across the country helped build networks that could translate into political support, not just checks," the Times said. "But Mr. Pratt lost the argument to two of Ms. Warren's closest advisers, Dan Geldon and Joe Rospars, who made the case about standing apart from the field and freeing up her schedule."

WaPo - Jennifer Rubin
Warren hits it out of the park

Over three days a steady stream of presidential candidates — including Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke and Sens. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) — have appeared at the convention of the National Action Network, headed by Rev. Al Sharpton, to make their case. It was obvious the candidates had been advised to come with proposals that would interest African Americans. ...

And then there was Warren, who was greeted as a rock star and supercharged the audience. As those who care about policy know, she’s got a bucketful of proposals — on Big Tech, on taxes, on housing, on ethics and more. On Friday, however, she did something smart, namely focus largely on one topic with depth, data and personal biography.

Her topic was affordable child care. The issue affects African Americans on both ends: Its lack of availability affects black parents disproportionately, and child-care workers, horribly underpaid, are disproportionately nonwhite. Warren made child care personal, telling of her own struggles and the times her education and career were nearly derailed.

She shared how, in desperation and in fear of having to quit teaching for lack of child care, she called her Aunt Bee and began to sob. “Then Aunt Bee said 11 words that changed my life forever. ‘I can’t get there tomorrow, but I can come on Thursday,‘” she said to warm applause and knowing laughter. “Two days later, she arrived at the airport with seven suitcases and a Pekingese named Buddy — and she stayed for 16 years.”

She added, “Now, if every working mom in the country had an Aunt Bee, we’d all be good. But that’s not the case. I know how lucky I was to have Aunt Bee save the day. But think about all the moms in America who don’t have an Aunt Bee.”

And with that she had the audience in the palm of her hand. She spelled out her comprehensive plan (expanding the existing health-care system, increasing the pay of child-care workers), paid for with money to spare by a wealth tax (2 percent on net worth over $50 million).

CNN
Elizabeth Warren's campaign announces $6 million first-quarter haul as it makes huge hires in early states ...

In conversations with CNN this week, Warren advisers painted a picture of a campaign that is laying the groundwork for a protracted battle for the Democratic nomination and anticipating the possibility that the Democratic contest turns into a 50-state scramble to pick up delegates. Warren has also focused heavily on ramping up operations on the ground, hiring scores of campaign staff and prioritizing human contact with voters in the field, aides said.

The Warren campaign now has more than 170 full-time paid staff, according to aides, with about half of them deployed in the four early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

Asked whether her campaign would adjust its game plan if her first quarter fundraising proved to be disappointing, the Massachusetts Democrat insisted in a brief interview with CNN last Friday: "I'm running the campaign I want to run."

"Instead of spending time with millionaire donors, I'm now at 12 states and Puerto Rico," Warren said, "spending time with people who're going to build the grassroots energy for us to win in 2020 and to make the changes we need to make in 2021."

New York Times
Elizabeth Warren Proposes Broad Plan to Protect Public Lands

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts unveiled a public lands proposal on Monday, thrusting land-use issues and the environment into the spotlight as she continues to set the pace on policy in a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates.

Ms. Warren’s plan, which she outlined in a post on Medium ahead of trips to Colorado and Utah this week, promises an executive order that would prohibit new leases for fossil fuel drilling offshore and on public lands, calls for the creation of “a 21st century Civilian Conservation Corps” staffed by 10,000 young people and seeks to reduce inaccessible public acreage by 50 percent.

It also aims to undo some of the environmental actions undertaken by the Trump administration, which she said amounted to “selling off our public lands to the oil, gas and coal industries for pennies on the dollar,” accelerating a “climate crisis” in the process. Under the plan, Ms. Warren said she would reinstate Obama-era air and water protections and wield the Antiquities Act, a 1906 law, to restore national monuments that President Trump shrank.

“America’s public lands are one of our greatest treasures,” she wrote in the Medium post. “But today, those lands are under threat.”

“We must not allow corporations to pillage our public lands and leave taxpayers to clean up the mess,” she said. “All of us — local communities and tribes, hunters and anglers, ranchers and weekend backpackers — must work together to manage and protect our shared heritage.”

Reuters
Elizabeth Warren builds largest U.S. presidential campaign staff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren has hired the largest campaign staff in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, quickly building a payroll that far exceeds her Democratic rivals, according to disclosures filed with the Federal Elections Commission.

Warren spent more than $1 million on payroll in the first quarter of 2019, more than double that of rivals such as U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris, the two who raised the most money in the first quarter.

The total does not include other payroll-related expenses. She spent about $566,000 on payroll taxes and $114,000 on health insurance.

Warren has said she intends to build a “grassroots” campaign. She has sworn off expensive fundraisers and is relying almost entirely on online donations to fund her campaign. ...

Warren had 161 employees already on her staff by the end of the first quarter, according to the disclosures she filed. About half of the staff, her campaign said, are positioned in early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada.

I Can’t Believe Elizabeth Warren Is Losing to These Guys
BY
DOUG HENWOOD

Almost every day Elizabeth Warren comes out with serious policy proposals. They’re rarely even baby steps down the road to socialism, but most of them would make this country a better place. But lacking a media-friendly history of being a skateboarding “punk” rocker or a stint with McKinsey — and you might think, not being a man — she can’t get any attention for them. She can’t get out of the mid-single digits in the polls, and PredictIt, the political betting site, puts her chances of winning the nomination at 7 percent. She’s having trouble raising money; she lagged Mayor Pete in the first quarter funding haul even though he was a nobody who’d just entered the race.

Warren’s politics aren’t exactly mine, but this is sad.

I developed a serious respect for Warren about twenty years ago, well before she was famous. She was a law professor at Harvard who’d done a lot of work on why people file for bankruptcy. In 1989, she, the sociologist Teresa Sullivan, and fellow law prof Jay Westbrook, published As We Forgive Our Debtors, a detailed study of 1,500 bankruptcy filings in three states. Warren et al found that bankrupts were not driven by fraud or a simple unwillingness to pay — they were just broke, deeply in debt, and had no other options. That contradicted the assertions of the credit industry, which blamed the long rise in bankruptcy filings on the 1978 revisions to the bankruptcy code, which they saw as too debtor-friendly. It was too easy to wipe out debt, and the creditor class wanted to change that. I read the book and interviewed Warren and Sullivan as part of my research for a piece I wrote for the Nation in 1992 on the boom in going bust.

Interestingly, as Politico reported, that bankruptcy research sparked her transformation from a fairly conservative Republican into a liberal Democrat. She went into the research convinced people who filed for bankruptcy were all cheaters, but discovered they were actual quite miserable. She told the magazine that revelation was “worse than disillusionment” and more “like being shocked at a deep-down level.”

Sadly, the average American probably (IMO) doesn't give a rat's behind about Warren's policy opinions. We just had an election two years ago with one candidate that had not only the most solid and relevant experience that is possible for a presidential candidate, but she had fully fleshed out policy positions on a multitude of topics. She ran against a racist buffoon who had not one single policy position other than the assertion that he would build a wall and force another country to pay for it.

Elizabeth Warren calls on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump

Elizabeth Warren became the first Democratic presidential candidate to call for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump Friday afternoon, citing the "severity" of "misconduct" detailed in the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States," The Massachusetts senator wrote on Twitter.

In an earlier tweet, Warren said that the report proved that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election with the goal of helping Mr. Trump, and showed that the president "obstructed the investigation into that attack." Mueller did not come to a conclusion as to whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice, although Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that there was insufficient evidence outlined in the report to charge the president with obstruction.

Warren cited a segment of the report where Mueller wrote that "Congress has authority to prohibit a President's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice."

"To ignore a President's repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways," Warren wrote on Twitter.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren promises to roll back Trump energy policies on 1st day in office

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren thrust herself into the climate change debate this week, promising that if elected president, she'd sign an executive order on her first day in office to end drilling offshore and on public lands, a move that would reverse President Donald Trump's most notable energy policies and halt the soaring rate of drilling permits granted on federal lands.

The proposal, her ninth since announcing her run for office, would also require 10% of all U.S. electricity generation to come from renewable resources offshore or on public lands.

The 2020 presidential contender unveiled the plan in a Medium blog post on April 15 before kicking off her three-state tour through South Carolina, Colorado and Utah, where she tailored her campaign message around clean energy, climate change and environmental justice. ...

Warren's plan comes as Democratic candidates aim to make climate change a central issue ahead of the primaries. Presidential hopefuls, such as Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, have already started a petition to dedicate one of 12 planned debates solely to discussing climate change. While other presidential candidates, like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, have pledged not to accept campaign money from oil and gas special interest groups.
