Elizabeth Warren hammers 'hate-for-profit' Fox News after shootings

Elizabeth Warren hammers ‘hate-for-profit’ Fox News after shootings

When Elizabeth Warren was asked earlier this year if she’d ever attend a Fox News town hall, the Democratic presidential candidate slammed the network as a 'hate-for-profit scam' and vowed never to accept an invitation.

In the wake of the two mass shootings that have reportedly left 29 dead and some 53 injured, Warren doubled down on her stance:

We need to call it out: Fox News is a hate-for-profit machine that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.

Before her Fox tweet, Warren joined a chorus of voices calling for action:

We're waking up to the second mass shooting in as many days. I’m heartsick for the 29 people killed this weekend in El Paso and Dayton—and all the other lives we lose every day due to senseless gun violence. We need to take urgent action to end the gun violence epidemic.

Elizabeth Warren's trade plan

"It is so good, fresh, and brilliant ... I almost want to cry" Robert Kuttner

Trade on Our Terms

•Trade negotiators will publicly disclose negotiating drafts and provide the public with an opportunity to comment.

•Trade advisory committees will prioritize the views of workers and consumers.

•The US International Trade Commission will provide a regional analysis of the economic effects of a trade agreement.

• The congressional approval process will offer more opportunities for the public and elected representatives to shape trade agreements.

In other words, full public consultation and a proper cost benefit analysis for starters. No more secret deals rushed through Congress only to leave ordinary people hung out to dry. There's a lot in there - another step in saving our democracy.

Early warning: some unwelcome publicity is coming this way

The Dayton shooter responded to a person’s tweet that read “if you nominate anyone other than sanders, you’re going to lose” by writing, “I think Warren has a decent shot, as well.” Betts said he would happily vote for Warren, but not Harris because she was a cop, and wished Joe Biden's generation would hurry up and die.

No doubt Elizabeth will be asked to comment on this. Betts' hatreds seem to go back a long way. He kept hit lists and rape lists at school, and was arrested after making death threats. He bought his rifle and accessories online - no background checks, no red flags.

Connor Betts, Dayton Shooter, described himself as a 'Leftist'

He said, 'I want Socialism' and would happily vote for Elizabeth Warren. He responded to a person’s tweet that read “if you nominate anyone other than sanders, you’re going to lose” by writing, “I think Warren has a decent shot, as well.”

On Nov. 2, 2018, he wrote: “Vote blue for gods sake.”

Dayton shooting: Possible domestic motive.

The gunman's sister and her boyfriend were amongst the dead.

O'Rourke: Trump is a 'racist,' responsible for El Paso shooting

Source: The Hill

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) said Saturday President Trump bore some responsibility for a shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed at least 20 people.

Asked by news reporters whether the president was in some part responsible for the shooting, O'Rourke, who formerly served as the city's mayor, responded firmly.

"Yes. We've had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years," O'Rourke said Saturday evening. "During an administration where you've had the president call Mexicans rapists and criminals."

"He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country," the former congressman and current 2020 candidate for president continued. "It does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country and it leads to violence."

Note: Belongs in LBN. An event of national importance. As a former mayor, O'Rourke is speaking on behalf of the city of El Paso.

Stephen Colbert should have run for the Democratic nomination

If the party is prepared to countenance the joke of having a self proclaimed love boat as the nominee, we should have had the choice of a real comedian - if Jon Stewart was not available.
