After an offer for American taxpayers to pick up the tab on all student loan debt fizzled and failed to dramatically boost Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the polls, a new idea was spawned to catch the eye of the electorate. She pledged, if elected president, to form a commission to investigate allegations of mistreatment of illegal aliens by the US government.
The clever inkling appeared to come to her while recently speaking at the radical left Netroots Nation conference:
“On my first day, I will empower a commission in the Department of Justice to investigate crimes committed by the United States against immigrants. To anyone out there who’s working in this system, understand … you physically abuse immigrants, you sexually abuse immigrants, you fail to get them medical care that they need, you break the law of the United States of America, and Donald Trump may be willing to look the other way, but President Elizabeth Warren will not.”
And her idea worked; Warren is trending for now. But how does a gal combat the assault of constant press that is not for her? Staying in the spotlight is difficult when her 24 competitors are coming up with creative ways to give away so much free stuff to every demographic. Getting lost in the shuffle heading to the next Democratic Party presidential debates is a reality-based fear, and one radical pledge against the government will be replaced easily by the next shiny object.
It’s most often a sparkly bauble President Trump tends to dangle in front of the radical left newbies — the not-so-fab four, Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Fed up with an unending onslaught of what Trump considers anti-American behavior, he told them to “leave” and go fix the countries whence they came.
Simply, no one this week cares much about the 24 wannabes vying for the Democratic nod to challenge Trump in the 2020 winner-take-all beat down.
Yes, Trump appears to be happily orchestrating a political diversion away from the candidate clown car.
But Warren Has a Plan
Before the latest crazy skirmish with what Swamp sitters call “the squad,” Warren released her much-awaited immigration plan, which amounts to the radical left’s vision of an open-border country. Adding to that her pledge to set up a “commission” to persecute federal employees, the good woman from Massachusetts is all in favor of decriminalizing border crossings by repealing Section 1325 — a 1929 law that made it a criminal offense to enter the United States without government authorization. She further wants to nearly decimate Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), remove private immigration detention centers, and stop “warrantless arrests or stops deep in the interior of our country.”
It sounds as if Warren wants to punish American federal employees for enforcing the law. She went on in a Medium post to threaten thousands of border patrol agents and the “abuse perpetrated during the Trump Era.”
Then she delivered the big finish: “Let there be no ambiguity on this: If you are violating the basic rights of immigrants, now or in the future, a Warren administration will hold you accountable.”
And we’ve documented this Warren announcement for posterity, because for certain, by tomorrow, no one will remember that pledge.
What Will Warren’s 2020 Eulogy Look Like?
Although Warren is creeping up — now running third — in the most recent presidential candidate surveys, former Vice President Joe Biden, still ahead by double digits, enjoys a confident lead over second-place Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Will the prickly and seemingly unpopular Warren steadily peck away at the hair-sniffing gropey Uncle Joe and the frumpy unapologetic socialist Sanders to face President Trump?
Or will Warren be relegated to the history books, saddled with her DNA debacle of Cherokee-heritage claims, spending hours in her own creation of “selfie lines,” denouncing term limits, refusing big money, giving away free stuff, and opening the borders for all?
It’s a marathon, this process of selecting the next would-be leader of the Free World. Those who came out sprinting likely will stand panting at the sidelines, while steadfast Democrats with a modicum of a non-communist message will certainly prevail.
Or maybe they are prepping instead for a go at 2024 — what with all the talk about and crazy plans for a socialized utopia. But gunning for American federal employees as a campaign promise, that’s almost beyond the paleface.
