The media has double standards as we all know. If you are a conservative, you are ruthlessly picked apart even for things you did not say. Mitt Romney has done nothing wrong with his taxes (other than being very successful!) yet the media has adopted the left’s line that he is guilty until proven innocent.
However, when you are a liberal, no one cases about what you might have done wrong, even when there is a strong record of misconduct.
Michael Patrick Leahy has been looking into Elizabeth Warren, the left’s great hope to knock off Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race.
Warren apparently had a lot of issues with her scholarship. Yet that did not stop Harvard’s law school from adding another far left activist to their professor ranks.
Harvard Law School and Elizabeth Warren have attempted to prop up her scholarship by pointing to "evidence" that it is stellar. But upon close examination, that "evidence" focuses not on the quality of her scholarship, but instead on the politically correct nature of her underlying message.
Take, for instance, the 1990 Silver Gavel Award that was given to Warren and her co-authors for their 1989 book by the American Bar Association. That award, which went the following year to admitted plagiarist and Warren's soon to be left-wing Harvard Law School colleague Laurence Tribe, is not awarded for quality of scholarship. Instead, it goes to the law book that best "educates" the public on legal issues that the ABA, a notoriously left wing organization, considers important.
Of course, what was important to both Harvard and the ABA is that another left wing professor be given career advancement.
As Leahy notes:
A third expert, University of Michigan economics professor Michele White, was equally critical of the work of Warren and her co-authors. In a 1991 article published in the Law and Society Review, "Economic Versus Sociological Approaches to Legal Research: The Case of Bankruptcy," White began by noting Ms. Warren's hostility to the principles of economics:
"[The] authors [of this book] are quite hostile to economics, and they attempt to discredit economic models and their predictions."
That the future self proclaimed "godmother" of Occupy Wall Street displayed hostility to fundamental principles of economics more than two decades ago should come as no surprise.
Leahy’s series (three of the four have been published on Breitbart and are very lengthy) goes into depth about Elizabeth Warren and why she should not even be a teacher in elementary school.
She is a determined ideologue who will not let the facts get in the way of her ideological conclusions.
If she were a conservative, the drive by media would be ripping her apart. But because she is a liberal, she gets a pass.
Well, almost. Mike Leahy and Breitbart are letting us know what the real media should be telling us.
Warren also claimed to be a Native American on her application to Harvard. The Tribes in Massachusetts have pretty much told her to drop it. She has recieved 60% of her campaign funds from OUTSIDE of the Commonwealth, mostly from New York and California. She has been caught in lie after lie, but the sheep here in Mass. still think she is the next Ted Kennedy. I do have a pretty good feeling about Scott Brown getting re-elected though. He is pretty above board and is really trying to keep it a clean campaign.
I think she's a man - hating, old lizard neck scag....... oh, and a communist.
That reminds me of this.
You left out "squaw"! LOL!
Elizabeth Warren is the "darling" of the Dem Party (IMO)--she embodies everything they believe in--lying, misrepresenting herself/the facts. . .obviously, they see her as a key player in the party as she "will have [a] prime speaking roles at the [DNC] convention on Sept. 5."
Let's not forget what she said back in 2011. . .sounds an awful lot like what BHO recently said (If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.)
I am really getting tired of all these arguments.NO BODY GET SUCCESSFUL (BE IT MONEY OR OTHERWISE WITHOUT THE HELP OF OTHER PEOPLE.....For examples, Black slaves got helped from both black and white people...Some white people even died during demonstrations to save black slaves from white oppression.
The universities and colleges we go to has over 50 years of research done and made ready by other people for us to make use of.
I am a bit confused professor, So, if the universities were built but the student did not work hard and burn candles every night, how will he or she get the degree?
If the roads were built and the small business persons did not work SLEEPLESS DAYS & NIGHTS, how will the good road be a benefit to the business person.
THERE ARE A LOT OF CRITICAL, PAINSTAKING PART THAT MUST BE PLAYED BY THE PERSON ITSELF (STUDENT OR BUSINESS PERSON)
PLEASE DON'T GET ME WRONG, I AM NOT AGAINST PAYING TAXES BUT THE WAY THESE ARGUMENT WAS GOING WAS NOT GOOD (WE ARE MOVING AWAY FROM THE REAL POINT) IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.
If they have bad credit, they'll suffer but if they have good credit banks will be begging them to come for loans.
OR if they don't have solid business experience and at least 3 years in business, banks will not touch them
In my opinion, It is not easy to raise a child and be a responsible father as it is easy to make love to his/her mother. It is not easy to be an employer
BOTTOM LINE IS: What those business people are saying is, they think that they built their business but they got a lot of help from big brothers and the society at large.......Because if they were not DETERMINED to built it despite all kinds of difficulties they'll go through....NO ONE WILL BUILD IT FOR THEM.
QUESTION IS. WHY ALL THESE ARGUMENTS, IS IT ABOUT CONVINCING THE RICH TO PAY MORE TAXES? THEY WILL NOT GET IT THIS WAY. AGAIN, IN MY OPINION
I'm not really keen on Brown, but anyone would be better than squaw Warren, right now. I'm not from MA, so I don't have a vote--just an opinion. Thanks for another enlightening article.
