Elizabeth Warren Endorses Progressives Trying to Unseat Democrats

Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be taking covert advice from Hillary Clinton about her presidential run, but it seems that she’s more interested in playing to the AOC crowd than to the “I’m With Her” donors. Having already irritated the Democratic donor class by using their money leftover from her Senate run while (loudly) eschewing their money in the 2020 race, she’s now at risk of turning the entire DNC establishment against her by throwing her endorsement towards progressives looking to unseat Democratic House incumbents.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Warren endorsed liberal challengers Jessica Cisneros and Marie Newman in their primary battles against incumbent Democratic representatives Henry Cuellar (Tex.) and Dan Lipinski (Ill.), respectively. Warren cited the challengers’ “unapologetic” progressive values and “unwavering commitment” to abortion in her Monday announcement.

Both of the incumbents targeted by Warren’s endorsement quickly fired back at the Massachusetts senator, labeling her a radical aligned with “outside special interests” looking to “take away local jobs.” Cisneros and Newman are supported by Justice Democrats, the same progressive group that backed Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) in 2018.

Warren’s endorsement of Newman puts her at odds with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which is supporting Lipinski in his reelection bid. The DCCC initially refused to endorse Lipinski but reversed course after criticism from moderate Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has also endorsed Lipinski in the past.

Seems clear at this point that Warren’s strategy is to out-left Bernie Sanders and pull away as the sole challenger to Joe Biden’s “moderate” place at the top of the field. While (so far) reluctant to attack Sanders one-on-one, Warren is showing with these endorsements that she’s plenty willing to buck Pelosi and the rest of the DNC establishment if it means lighting up Twitter with her socialist credentials.

At the end of the day, this is yet another example of the disarray that clouds the Democratic Party as we move forward into the 2020 race. While some Democrats, like Biden, think that the race should be all about taking Trump out of the White House, there is a growing (and loud) minority that believes 2020 should be an aspirational year filled with free healthcare, open borders, Green New Deals, and other civilization-killing ideas.

If the Dems stay on the “moderate” path (well, as it’s defined by the crazy left of 2019, that is), they stand a good chance of doing some damage next November. If they go the Warren/Ocasio-Cortez route…well, we just don’t think those outlandish policies are as popular around the country as they might be in the Bronx.

We’ll see.

  1. I suppose all is fair in love and war, and make no mistake about it, politics is war. Warren is certainly free to endorse anyone she wants to, but should keep in mind that two can play that same game. Just simply get a more moderate Democrat to challenge each of the “Squad” members-most of them have not done much for their constituencies or the country and all have done things to anger their possible voters, so work to get rid of them. There, tit for tat-all’s fair!

  2. THE Constitution of the U.S.. was written and constructed by our forfathers and it was written based UPON the King James 1611 Bible! The very structure of our congress/senate/legislature and Courts, be itS.C. or local or state were formed based upon Exodus 18:20-22 KJV These verses show who and why the nation is to be run accordingly! There are 4/four requirments for Congress/sneate/legislators/all courts etc (this would include the gov’s and presidents etc.) These 4 requirements are as follows for all of you who will not “SEE” them for yourself. vs 21 says 1. “ABLE MEN” 2. says MEN thtat FEAR GOD. 3. says “MEN” of TRUTH. 4. Says “MEN” hating coveteousness. Whle this knocks out a whole bunch of men, it knocks out ALL women! A woman is NOT to lead the man, and certainly not a nation! she is to follow the man, and assist him! 1 Tim 2:12/Pro 31:3 and 30. This is NOT against women, it “IS” what GOD Almighty said and IF and when a woman is installed a Pres then that will be the final NAIL in out national coffin! An EMOTIONAL woman can not lead nor administer the law based upon fellings, and that is what a woman will do! The woman is MEANT as an “HELP MEET” (FIT) for the man, NOT his head! P.S. Name ONE/1 Successful woman leader from the dawn of time until now! I mean a woman who made a nation great! Just one! What was her name and when and where did she rule?

  3. PEOPLE had better PRAY for the United Sates and what we do and for what need be done! ALWAYS SUPPORT ISRAEL or be destroyed! Genesis 12:2-3 KJV Donald Trump is and has supported israel and shall be blessed in this matter! PRAY for the peace of Jerusalem Psa 122:6 KJV Jerusalem is NOT, nor ever has been a Muslim city! That is GOD’s land, that HE gave it to Israel, and nothing shall or ever has changed this FACT! Isa 14:1-2 KJV The Land of Israel is the LORD’s and he gave it to Israel UNCONDITIONALLY. Psa 10:16/2 Chron 7:14 and 20/Joel 2:18, 3:1-2 /2 Chron 18:3, 3:1 KJV Nations that will NOT be ruled by The GOD of the KJV Bible will be ruled by Tyrants!

  4. Warren is no different than Bolshevik Sanders. They are both Communists. The liberal commie Democrats want an America patented after Socialist Europe and an American Government patented after Communist China. The only difference between a progressive and a communist is the name, otherwise, they are one and the same. When a democratic politician calls themselves a progressive, like Warren, they are basically saying they are a communist. Calling one’s self a progressive is a better sell to the gullible voters, (I wonder who that can be) than to outright tell the truth and call themselves a communist.
