This time liberals promised to turn to their imaginary strength, namely their diversity, in picking their nominee for the upcoming presidential election.</p>\n<p> SO HERE we are.&nbsp; Yet the Democrats are rallying behind another 70-year-old dishonest northeastern white woman senator as their nominee, this time Elizabeth Warren.<br />\n &ldquo;When did you first find out you were white?&rdquo; was the essence of a hilarious question put to Warren earlier this year.&nbsp; After exaggerating her Native American heritage in order to boost her legal career and get on the faculty of Harvard Law School, Warren released a DNA report showing that she has very little Cherokee Indian ancestry.<br />\n For Democrats this was supposed to be the year of the African-American candidates, such as Kamala Harris and Cory Booker.&nbsp; Kamala Harris was poised to give us an extra bonanza in diversity, because her mother was from India and her father is from Jamaica, but she has fallen flat as a presidential candidate.<br />\n None of these candidates is getting any traction in the Democratic presidential primary.&nbsp; After multiple debates, with another scheduled for next week, it appears that Democrats do not really want to nominate a diversity candidate after all.<br />\n Atop the polling and ahead in fundraising is nobody but white candidates:&nbsp; Warren, Biden, Sanders, and Buttigieg.&nbsp; The diversity candidates for the Democratic nomination have all floundered.<br />\n Warren&rsquo;s lack of diversity is not the only thing that she has in common with her failed predecessor, Hillary Clinton.&nbsp; Both apparently also have difficulty telling the truth.<br />\n Warren has bragged that she climbed her way up from an underprivileged background, describing her father as merely a janitor.&nbsp; But his death certificate lists him as a flight instructor in the U.S. Army, and his obituary said he was a self-employed businessman.<br />\n Elizabeth Warren has made up other things about her background.&nbsp;&nbsp; As candidate Warren she pretends that she lost her job as a public school teacher because she became pregnant. &nbsp;<br />\n But in 2008, in a statement captured on video, Warren told a completely different version of why she quit as a teacher.&nbsp; Then she said she wanted to spend a few years at home, and to return to graduate school.<br />\n On Monday the Washington Free Beacon ran a story which uncovered the minutes for the Riverdale Board of Education, which show that it unanimously approved an additional two-year contract for Warren.&nbsp; Two months later, the minutes reflect that it was Warren who resigned, which the Board &ldquo;accepted with regret.&rdquo;<br />\n Ultimately she migrated to the ultra-Left culture of liberal law professors, railing against capitalism and free enterprise.&nbsp; Democrats on Wall Street are so uncomfortable with her that they have signaled they will not support her as the nominee.<br />\n Meanwhile, some experts have been predicting that Hillary Clinton will reemerge on the grand stage for a rematch of 2016.&nbsp; After all, why settle for the cheap imitation when liberals can have the real deal, Hillary herself?</p>\n<p> TRUMP IS trouncing Warren in a recent independent poll of independent voters.&nbsp; It shows Trump leading Warren by 49% to 43%.<br />\n This is a marked improvement for Trump over a similar poll last month, when Warren was ahead of Trump by two points among independent voters.&nbsp; Warren does not run as well as Sanders does among independent voters, but Trump now has a comfortable advantage of 4 points over Sanders among this key demographic, too.<br />\n Warren, as a liberal law professor from Massachusetts, is not the type of candidate who could pull working class voters away from Trump.&nbsp; He would have a field day at his massive campaign rallies ridiculing Warren&rsquo;s duplicity and her many nutty ideas.<br />\n Warren wants to impose an unconstitutional wealth tax on every American who has more than $50 million in assets.&nbsp; Such a tax would cause wealth to flee our country, as it has in European countries which have tried that.<br />\n Also, the threshold for the tax would be lowered and lowered, such that before long the middle class would be paying a tax on their assets, too.&nbsp; That would deter savings, discourage investment, and induce Americans to carry more debt.<br />\n The biggest appeal of Warren to Democrat voters is her potential electability, but if she is not more electable than Hillary then they would prefer Hillary.&nbsp; The media, too, would like nothing more than a rematch to redeem themselves.</p>\n<p> THEN WE would have a replay of the election of 1956, when stubborn Democrats nominated the very same person who had lost in the prior presidential election, Adlai Stevenson.&nbsp; The Republicans won that rematch just as they had won the first time.</p>\n', created = 1575987484, expire = 1576073884, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:74f567c1bd8b9f896550355efb1d9932' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
