ELDER PATRIOT – During Ben Carson’s confirmation hearing for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Elizabeth Warren was intent on getting Carson to commit to conducting Washington’s business as usual. She was trying to force him to agree to limit himself to using the same government contractors that have systematically driven us into debt by exceeding their budgets while they delivered their projects late, sometimes so late that new technologies rendered them useless.
Anything Carson might try to improve conditions in our inner cities and lessen the Democrats’ grip on these urban plantations would be unacceptable to Warren and her fellow Democrats who have diligently developed our urban centers solely to benefit themselves through widespread corruption and by currying voter support.
Warren knows that without the financial benefits that accompanies corruption the effort to win elections would not be worth it, at least not to fraudulently greedy politicians of her ilk.
If you think that’s too harsh of an assessment about this fraudulent Pocahontas from Massachusetts then consider this story from Warren’s past. Warren made her fortune prior to running for Senate by flipping properties. There’s nothing inherently wrong in buying distressed properties, renovating them and then selling them for a reasonable profit. But, that’s not how Warren operated.
Take the case of 70-year-old Mary Frances Hickman who was duped out of her home for a mere $30,000 by Warren. Warren flipped the property for $145,000 a mere five months later. Hickman, who had suffered a stroke shortly before selling to Warren, became just one more old person that Warren took advantage of.
Warren rose to political prominence by crusading for the “little guy” while voting for legislation that barred those same little people from employing the strategies that she used to get wealthy.
In short, her claims to be a protector of the small investor are as phony as her claims of Indian heritage that she fraudulently used to enhance her chances of admission to Harvard. Warren recognized that there were untold riches to be gained by duping those less knowledgeable than she.
Already a wealthy woman when she ran for Senate, Warren recognized that the gravy train of government held far greater potential for building her personal wealth than anything she had previously done with her life.
Now Trump threatens to destroy the goose that lays the golden eggs for Warren and her co-conspirators that have made Washington into a swamp.
That’s why she asked Dr. Carson if, “whether or not among the billions of dollars that you will be responsible for handing out in grants and loans can you just assure us that not one dollar will go to benefit either the president-elect or his family?”
Carson smacked Warren down when he answered that his actions would be guided by morality and common sense:
“I will manage things in a way that benefits the American people, that is going to be the goal. If there happens to be an extraordinarily a good program that’s working for millions of people and it turns out that that someone that you’re targeting is going to gain you know ten dollars from it am I going to say, ‘no the rest of you Americans can’t have it,’ I think logic and common sense probably would be the best way.”
Warren wanted a commitment that there would be no Wollman Rink successes in America’s future. Dr. Carson reminded her that was the reason Donald Trump was elected.
