Fox News Prime Time Ratings DOMINATE CNN and MSNBC Democratic Town Halls

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson dominated Monday night’s ratings, beating out both an MSNBC town hall with Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand and CNN’s town hall with candidate Elizabeth Warren.

The Daily Caller reports:

Carlson more than doubled the MSNBC town hall with Gillibrand, both in total viewers with approximately 3.1 million viewers tuning in, and with 570,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. Gillibrand’s town hall, by comparison, garnered only 1.2 million viewers and 224,000 in the key age range.

Hannity also more than doubled the ratings of CNN’s 9 p.m. town hall with Warren–with 2.9 million viewers and 494,000 in the 25-54 target audience.

Senate to Vote on Green New Deal, Forcing Dems to go on Record

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will allow a vote on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) radical Green New Deal.

Yesterday, McConnell told reporters, “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal proposal has come under fire by many on the right for its unrealistic and radical agenda and embarrassing “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) paper.

The FAQ document–which has since been scrubbed from Ocasio-Cortez’s website–promised to make air travel “unnecessary,” guaranteed a job for every person in America, and “economic security” for those “unwilling” to work.

The FAQ document also tackled the dire issue of “farting cows.” It states, “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seemed dismissive of the plan, telling Politico last week, “It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive. The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”

Fox News points out that the Senate vote will have implications for Democrats running in the 2020 presidential race:

“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.

While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.”

Warren’s Fantasy: Trump “May Not be Free Person” by 2020

Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested yesterday that President Trump may not be able to run for office in 2020 because he may already be in prison.

Speaking at a rally in Cedar Rapids, IA, the senator said, “Every day, there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly. And what are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about that? Are we going to chase after those every day? Are we going to let him use those to divide us?”

“You know here’s what bothers me,” she continued. “By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person.”

She added, “Here’s how I see it. Donald Trump is not the only problem we’ve got. Yeah. Donald Trump is the symptom of a badly broken system.”

Warren has been embroiled in a scandal ever since she released the results of her DNA test which determined she was between 1/64 Native American and 1/1,024 Native American. At the time, Cherokee Nation said her test was “inappropriate and wrong” and “undermined” tribal interests.

Last week, after it was revealed that she had described herself as “American Indian” on her State Bar of Texas registration card, the senator indicated that even more documents from her past may include her “Native American” heritage claims.

When asked by reporters if other documents existed in which she labeled herself American Indian, Warren replied, “So, all I know is, during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family’s stories ….”

“Look, this is who I grew up believing with my brothers,” Warren said.  “This is our family’s story, and it’s all consistent from that point in time. But as I said, it’s important to note I’m not a tribal citizen and I should have been more mindful of the distinction.”

Elizabeth Warren Suggests More Documents May Include her “American Indian” Claims

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) indicated yesterday that even more documents from her past may include her “Native American” heritage claims after it was revealed that she had described herself as “American Indian” on her State Bar of Texas registration card.

The Massachusetts senator was asked yesterday by reporters if other documents existed where she identified as American Indian.

She replied, “So, all I know is, during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family’s stories ….”

“Look, this is who I grew up believing with my brothers,” Warren said.  “This is our family’s story, and it’s all consistent from that point in time. But as I said, it’s important to note I’m not a tribal citizen and I should have been more mindful of the distinction.”

The RNC announced yesterday that Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel filed a grievance against Sen. Elizabeth Warren with the State Bar of Texas over the Senators false claims of American Indian heritage.

The Hill writes that McDaniel “called that a misrepresentation and wrote to the state bar’s chief disciplinary counsel to argue the senator had failed to correct her registration card from 1986, and therefore violated the state’s requirements that applicants have ‘good moral character and fitness.’”

Warren took a DNA test in October which determined she was between 1/64 Native American and 1/1,024 Native American. At the time, Cherokee Nation said her test was “inappropriate and wrong” and “undermined” tribal interests.

Last week, it was revealed the Senator apologized to the Cherokee Nation for taking the DNA test.

RNC Chair Asks State Bar of Texas to Discipline Elizabeth Warren for Lying about Heritage

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has filed a grievance against Sen. Elizabeth Warren with the State Bar of Texas after it was revealed the Senator once claimed to be American Indian on her registration card.

The Hill writes that McDaniel “called that a misrepresentation and wrote to the state bar’s chief disciplinary counsel to argue the senator had failed to correct her registration card from 1986, and therefore violated the state’s requirements that applicants have ‘good moral character and fitness.'”

McDaniel wrote to the Texas Bar, “Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an ‘American Indian’ or Native American throughout her career.”

She continued, “It has now been thirty-three (33) years since she made this representation to the Texas Bar and has never made an attempt to correct her registration card. Therefore it is clear that Attorney Warren lacked the ‘Good Moral Character’ required for admission to the Texas Bar and should be disciplined for her three (3) decades of untruthfulness.”

The Washington Post revealed yesterday that Warren listed herself as “American Indian” on her Texas Bar registration card.

Warren apologized for lying about her heritage, telling the paper, “I can’t go back, but I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

Warren took a DNA test in October which determined she was between 1/64 Native American and 1/1,024 Native American. At the time, Cherokee Nation said her test was “inappropriate and wrong” and “undermined” tribal interests.

Last week, it was revealed the Senator apologized to the Cherokee Nation for taking the DNA test.

In a statement, Cherokee Nation said, “Senator Warren has reached out to us and has apologized to the tribe. We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests…”

Another Apology: State Bar Registration Card Shows Sen. Warren Labeled Herself Native American

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has made yet another apology relating to the controversy surrounding her exaggerated claims of Native American heritage.

The apology comes as the Washington Post revealed she labeled herself Native American on her 1986 Texas state bar registration card.

The Massachusetts senator said to the paper, “I can’t go back, but I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

Donald Trump Jr. reacted to the news, writing on Twitter, “Suspicious timing for this to come out. It’s almost like Elizabeth Warren is trying to hide what I’ve said all along about taking advantage of her fake Native American heritage at the expense of real Native Americans and minorities.”

Last week it was revealed that Warren apologized to the Cherokee Nation for taking a DNA test to prove her scant Native American background.

Tribal leaders said Warren apologized, but would not specify what she said, according to Tulsa World.

In a statement, Cherokee Nation said, “Senator Warren has reached out to us and has apologized to the tribe. We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests. We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to an end,” the Cherokee Nation said in a statement.”

Warren took a DNA test in October which determined she was between 0.09 and 1.5 percent Native American. At the time, Cherokee Nation said her test was “inappropriate and wrong” and “undermined” tribal interests.

Warren’s apologies come as she prepares to formally announce her 2020 run for president. She is expected to make her announcement on February 9 after recently visiting Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.
