Hillary Caught In Another Self-Serving Lie – A Lot Like The Whopper A Potential Challenger Has Told

You may recall the big flap over Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s oft-repeated claim that she is part Cherokee, descended from Native Americans — a claim that Breitbart News debunked through extensive and detailed documentation.

“In 2012 Breitbart News exhaustively documented the facts surrounding Senator Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry and demonstrated that no credible evidence exists to support those claims. But lack of genealogical evidence has never stopped Senator Warren from boldly asserting as fact something which is flatly not true.”

The far-left senator’s claim of Native American ancestry — in addition to possibly conveying upon her some sort of pseudo-authenticity as a legitimate voice of oppressed America — was reportedly useful in her applications for employment prior to being elected to public office, as Breitbart noted.

She’s made this claim, apparently, to three separate employers–the University of Texas Law School, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and Harvard Law School. None apparently asked her for proof, nor did she offer any.

Now, it turns out, Hillary Clinton is also angling for an advantage in presenting her faux family history to the American people as she applies for the most powerful job in the land — President of the United States.

The wildly popular website BuzzFeed has just posted the results of its investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s claims that all her grandparents were immigrants — an assertion that could boost the candidate’s standing with a key constituency perceived to be vital to Democrats’ electoral hopes

And as the BuzzFeed article points out, this provably false Clinton claim is being repeated as she launches her campaign in Iowa this week, staging small, intimate gatherings with supposedly “everyday” folks.

“Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.”

The BuzzFeed piece presents a number of images of census records that clearly indicate Hillary is not telling the truth about her so-called “immigrant” grandparents.

Hill-1

Lest you think that the BuzzFeed post on Hillary’s self-serving lie about her ancestry won’t reverberate around the web and be seen by folks who like the candidate as well as those who don’t, here are a few sample headlines from publications that have picked up on the story so far:

New York Post: “Hillary fudges the truth about her immigrant grandparents”
CNN: “Hillary Clinton misrepresents family history”
People Magazine: “Hillary Clinton got her grandparents’ immigration story wrong”

And how hard would it have been for Hillary Clinton or any semi-competent aide or novice assistant to confirm the candidate’s story about her “immigrant” ancestors? As the evidence presented by BuzzFeed shows, it would have been as simple as checking ancestry.com.

But then, as is the case with so many convenient and expedient narratives embraced and promoted by those on the left, that easily obtainable evidence would interfere with an appeal to a political base eager to believe.

What These Hollywood Leftists Just Said In An Appeal About 2016 Should Worry Hillary

If Hillary Clinton is thinking she’ll collect a lot of Hollywood cash for her 2016 campaign coffers, she may want to think again…and start some serious outreach to left-coast lefties who are already looking beyond the former first lady to another potential female candidate.

As writer Robert Laurie points out on Herman Cain’s website, a whole lot of movie and TV stars and entertainment industry luminaries have signed an open letter to Elizabeth Warren, virtually begging the Massachusetts senator to enter the race for president.

Calling themselves “Artists for Warren,” these 90 celebs put their names to the plea for the ultra-liberal lawmaker to “stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that broke our economy.”

The open letter with the heading “Run Warren Run” refers time and again to “big corporations,” “corporate interests” and the “big banks” aligned with greedy Wall Street fat cats — pleading for a champion “who stands up for the people.”

Of course, one might find it more than a tad ironic that these Hollywood types — many of whom make many times the average wage of the average American — see fit to slam the system that has made them part of the “wealthiest 1%” they so harshly criticize. It would seem these stars want to bring down the kind of capitalism in which they, themselves, thrive.

Among the more recognizable names attached to this letter appealing to Warren to jump into a race she has avoided are:
– Michael Moore
– Mark Ruffalo
– Susan Sarandon
– Julia Stiles
– Ed Norton
– Olivia Wilde

One should note that those six names out of a list of 90 might suggest that this group does not necessarily represent the best and brightest of the left-coast libs — especially not the ones known to shower Democrats with torrents of money.

Still, this is a clear shot at Hillary Clinton, who, the letter suggests, is aligned with those big, bad “corporate” interests and Wall Street bankers from whom Elizabeth Warren could be a “powerful, tireless champion…to push for real solutions to income inequality.”

As for Warren herself, she continues to say she has no intention of running for president in 2016. Though, in doing so, she has not hesitated to denounce a Hillary Clinton candidacy, as The Atlantic notes: “Warren has characterized Hillary Clinton herself as a conscienceless politician who betrayed her professed principles for campaign donations.”

Rush Limbaugh: Hillary And Jeb ‘Perfect Ticket’ For Establishment

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush

On his syndicated radio program Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh argued that the “perfect ticket” for the establishment of both the Republican and Democratic Parties would consist of former Governor Jeb Bush and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asserting that “both parties agree the Tea Party has got to be dealt with somehow, some way.”

Limbaugh said Wednesday that Clinton had “a little problem.” The former Secretary of State “has to run for the presidency away from Obama, because Obama is death politically to Democrats seeking office.

“I give you the 2014 elections. Every Democrat senator [who] voted for Obamacare [is] toast. They’re gone, one way or the other; defeated, quit, retired, or dead. Hillary Clinton, Benghazi, all kinds of controversies and scandals, Hillary Clinton was tied. She’s got to distance herself.

The syndicated radio host argued that Clinton needs to win in another fashion because the Democratic base belongs to Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who Limbaugh claimed is playing coy about running for President. Limbaugh gave his perfect solution for 2016 for those in the establishment:

“The ideal perfect ticket for the 2016 election: Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush. Now they can figure out who’s on top of the ticket on their own. But when you compare their positions, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, on the key important issues, they are two peas in the same pod.”

Limbaugh buttressed his argument by noting that both Bush and Clinton are pro-amnesty candidates. “Jeb Bush wants it; Hillary wants it. Both parties want to win the nomination, Hillary by running away from the Democrat base, Jeb by running away from the Republican base.”

Betrayal: Could Obama Have Just Stabbed Hillary In The Back?

Would Barack Obama back the “progressive” Elizabeth Warren over establishment candidate Hillary Clinton if they both ran in 2016? That’s what Ed Klein, author of Blood Feud, thinks.

In fact, Klein writes that while Obama is publicly noncommittal on 2016, “privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies.” He also writes that there remains animosity between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Why would Obama support Warren instead? Warren is a progressive like Obama, rails against the one percent, and had the support of some big dollar donors when she won her original Massachusetts Senate seat (including Hollywood celebrities.)

How supportive is Obama of a Warren run? According to Klein, whose book “Blood Feud” just premiered at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, Obama is very supportive. Klein says that Obama has sent his chief political advisor, Valerie Jarrett, to talk Elizabeth Warren into running in 2016 during several secret meetings. Warren has shown reluctance to get involved, though.

One Obama administration source said the following:

Barack, Michelle, and Valerie have been talking about Elizabeth Warren for quite some time.

The source added:

Valerie has told Warren that Obama is prepared to throw a great deal of money and organizational support behind her. The Obamas believe that Warren sees things from the same ideological point of view as they do. She is a committed progressive who, like Obama, wants to transform America into a European-style democratic-socialist state.

Klein said that one person who had talked with Jarrett indicated the following:

For the time being, the Obamas have decided not to broadcast the fact that they’ve tapped Warren as their chosen candidate. They are waiting until the moment is right, which will probably be after the midterm elections.

What do you think? Would Obama back Warren over Hillary?

WATCH: Dinesh D’Souza Mocks The Left’s Hypocrisy On Capitalism

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza takes aim at his enemies in his new movie “America,” scheduled to make its nationwide release on July 2nd.

This is his follow-up movie to his successful 2012 movie “2016: Obama’s America”.

In this clip, we see D’Souza getting a hot dog on Broadway, while a clip of democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren’s speech on how “nobody gets rich on their own” plays in the background.

This is followed by a clip of director Michael Moore talking about how capitalism needs to be changed altogether, from a PBS roundtable discussion “Poverty in America”.

On a big screen in Times Square, we see Moore saying, “Let’s use the C-word here. We’re talking about capitalism. If it’s a more comfortable word for you – greed.”

Ironically, the 59 year-old director has a net worth of $50 million.
