Elizabeth Warren Has Divined and Deployed Her Life's Work

We all get grrrreat liberal email, amidst the junk, but it's especially exciting when something new about our amazing Elizabeth Warren, the Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is waiting to be opened.

This morning it was Howard Dean in tandem, a good pairing for progressives. The active and admirable group, Democracy for America, is turning ten.

Hi Sherry -- I just wanted to make sure you had a chance to read the inspiring email that Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote to DFA members below. I'm so thrilled with what we've built together over the last 10 years. With your critical support now, we can super-charge our people-powered legacy and elect more "Elizabeth Warren Democrats" to Congress -- the kind of leaders who will take our country back from the banks and billionaires.
- Howard

DFA has perhaps not embraced the absolute most progressive candidate for every round of their online grassroots inspired 'Dean Dozen' ... but they've come mightily close and have helped elect 801 Dems besides Elizabeth Warren who would collectively and individually freak the be-jeebus out of Sarah Palin and her Lipton Brigadiers.

An arugula munching crowd that in toto would send Rush Limpbaugh dashing for enough manufactured hysteria to keep him in leather ass-less chaps for years. [Long running Free Range joke, The Rushbot has a purported fondness for frolicking in asslesss leather chaps while high. 😉 ]

Warren's own message was typically optimistic and energizing.

DFA fought shoulder-to-shoulder with me to defeat Scott Brown in 2012, but that's not the only way they've had my back. Over the past year, they've made my fight for the middle class their fight -- and they have doubled down on leveling the playing field for working Americans, fighting with energy and passion.

When I introduced my very first bill, the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act,more than 50,000 DFA members signed a petition supporting it. Together, we fought back against cuts to Social Security, helping President Obama decide to drop "chained CPI" from his budget completely.

For sheer enjoyment, plus the splendid edification(!)some great audio of Warren from a recent discussion of where the middle class is headed in the Twenty Teens … 'to hell in a highly gussied hand basket' would be the Jeopardy answer. The Young Turks get the sincere tip of the hat, for Roaring Warren!

What messnbc thinks of the Real Progressives at Netroots Nation

Share

stfu-wheel-of-fortune-wall

I've been hearing more -- justified -- criticism of msnbc anchors this year, from everyone from family to online addicts comme moi, than I'm comfortable with. In no progressive world is it good to hear fewer raves and virtually all "so disappointed in" caveats on the best network we've got at hand. Maddow is there. Particularly when Fvx Nation is at the opposite helm.

It was too interesting not to have a peek at young Steve Kornacki taking UP viewers for a look at Progressives, Elizabeth Warren and Veep Joe Biden jazzing up the keynote speeches at this year's Netroots Nation 2014 in Detroit.

Sidebar: Which you should absolutely have enjoyed first with Nicole Sandler, goes without saying but here's the Youtubes linkage.

At Radio Or Not. Nicole had an epic week. Compare her look to Kornacki's and add Barney Frank in the segments to follow and you might have the progressive epiphany you've been hoping for.

And of course the natural segue would be to Hillary Cautionary Expertise. It's de rigeur. Where to begin? notsure

Elizabeth Warren Does What Hillary Clinton Could Never Do

Share

YellenWarrenw212h202Do you want to know why there's a draft Elizabeth Warren movement growing by leaps and bounds? The answer is found by simply watching the Massachusetts senator calmly, quietly, and succinctly destroy Fed Chairman Janet Yellen.

You don't have to know anything about banking and finance to understand Senator Warren spelling out precisely that the Federal Reserve Board is still not doing its job. They're kowtowing to the huge money institutions and allowing "too big to fail" to continue.

What's below is priceless. Smart as Hillary Clinton is,  she could never do this:
