Senator Elizabeth Warren raised eyebrows across the USA Wednesday when she called for “criminal penalties” for those who spread “disinformation” on the internet and social media; raising serious questions over a citizen’s right to Freedom of Speech.

“Disinformation and online foreign interference erode our democracy, and Donald Trump has invited both,” Warren said in a Tweet Wednesday. “Anyone who seeks to challenge and defeat Donald Trump in the 2020 election must be fully prepared to take this on – and I’ve got a plan to do it.”
“I will push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating this kind of information, which has the explicit purpose of undermining the basic right to vote,” Warren said in a release.

“Presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Tuesday that she would begin to forgive student loan debt on the first day of her administration, using legal tools that would allow her to bypass Congress,” reports CNBC.
“I will start to use existing laws on day one of my presidency to implement my student loan debt cancellation plan that offers relief to 42 million Americans — in addition to using all available tools to address racial disparities in higher education, crack down on for-profit institutions, and eliminate predatory lending,” writes Warren.

SOVIET STYLE: Elizabeth Warren Says She’ll ‘Do Whatever it Takes’ to ‘Stop Climate Crisis’
Rising Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren pledged to “do whatever it takes” to “stop the climate crisis” Friday; saying the United States must introduce “big structural change” to save our planet.
“I’m willing to do whatever it takes to stop the climate crisis—and that starts with eliminating the filibuster so that we can make the big, structural change we desperately need to save our planet,” Warren posted on social media.
Thank you, @JayInslee. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to stop the climate crisis—and that starts with eliminating the filibuster so that we can make the big, structural change we desperately need to save our planet. https://t.co/t50mffJPmA

Judge Jeanine Pirro spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday on Elizabeth Warren’s wild policy proposals; saying -if elected- her “new deals” on healthcare, childcare, and climate would ultimately “break this country.”
“Clearly, she has used this to her advantage. I wonder how many people have actually considered the fact that she lied to get ahead, she lied to get into Harvard, she lied to make money off of Harvard,” said Pirro on Warren’s claims of Native American ancestry.
“Unfortunately, the movement is going in her direction because now she’s at 25%, edging in on Joe Biden… She now is smart enough to make all the tactical moves. Her deals are going to break this country, it’s just not going to work,” she added.
Polling from earlier this month had Warren tied with Biden just months before Democratic voters head to the polls.
“The 2020 candidate pulled off a rare showing in an Economist/YouGov poll published Wednesday, tying the largely untouchable former Vice President Joe Biden with 26 percent support among registered voters. It marks one of the few polls where Biden is within danger of losing his frontrunner status, and contains a dismal prediction for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.),” reports The Week magazine.
“Biden has only had a few close calls in previous polls, but Warren’s 2020 rise has seemingly been eating away at his support as well as Sanders’. In a late August poll from Monmouth University, Sanders and Warren topped the pool with 20 percent support, and Biden was just behind at 19 percent. In this Economist/YouGov poll, Biden is back up, but so is Warren, both leaving Sanders a full 10 points behind at 16 percent,” adds the website.
