2004 Flashback: Elizabeth Warren Describes Hillary Clinton As A Puppet For Wall Street

Tyler Durden's picture

Hillary Clinton doesn't want to release transcripts from speeches that she gave to firms on Wall Street, however everyone (at least readers of this site) knows the reason, so they aren't necessarily needed. Clinton would be just as much in the hip pocket of banks as any other politician.

 

But don't take our word for it, take Elizabeth Warren's, the person cited as Hillary's most likely Vice Presidential candidate.

In an interview that is said to date back to 2004, Warren begins by explaining that she and then First Lady Hillary Clinton sat down and discussed the negative impacts a pending bankruptcy bill would have on women who were raising families. As a result of their meeting Warren said, Hillary went to work in the White House in order to stop the legislation, and ultimately influenced her husband to veto the bill when it came across his desk.

"She says, 'tell me about bankruptcy' - I go over the law, went over the economics, showed her the graphs, showed her the charts, and she got it."

 

"At the end of the conversation, Mrs. Clinton stood up, and she said professor Warren we've got to stop that awful bill."

 

"She went back to Washington and I heard later from someone who was a White House staffer that there were skid marks in the hallways when Mrs. Clinton got back as people reversed direction on that bankruptcy bill. When Mrs. Clinton came back with a little better understanding of how it all worked, they reversed course and they reversed course fast. And the proof is in the pudding. The last bill that came before President Clinton was that bankruptcy bill that was passed by the House and the Senate in 2000 and he vetoed it. In her autobiography Mrs. Clinton took credit for that veto and she rightly should."

However, as Senator Clinton, now entirely beholden to banks after generous contributions made to finance her campaign, her vote was different. Funny how that all works isn't it?

"One of the first bills that came up after she was 'Senator Clinton' was the bankruptcy bill - she voted in favor of it."

When asked why, Warren points out that as Senator the stakes are different, and Clinton didn't want to bit the hand that fed her, rather, funded campaign coffers (and of course would later pay Clinton millions to give speeches - it's always important to have an eye toward the future).

"As Senator Clinton, the pressures are very different. It's a well financed industry. A lot of people don't realize that the industry that gave the most money to Washington over the past few years was not the oil industry, was not pharmaceuticals, it was consumer credit products. Those are the people, the credit card companies that have been giving money, and they have influence. She has taken money from the groups, and more to the point, she worries about them as a constituency."

Warren concludes with some truthiness about just how cutthroat banks and other lobbyists will be in order to drain the middle class out of every penny they may have.

"You know this is the scary part about Democracy today. We're talking again about the impact of money. The credit industry on this bankruptcy bill has spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying, and as their profits grow they just throw more into lobbying for how they can get laws that will make it easier and easier and easier to drain money out of the pockets of middle class families"

Ironically she is now endorsing - and likely about to become the vice presidential candidate - of the one candidate who exemplifies just how "for sale" US politicians are to big money corporations and financial lobbies.

What a load of crap, they are bringing up a speech Warren made 8 years ago?  8 years is forever.  Name one candidate that has held a consistent position for 8 years or more.  I bet they don't even exist or I would be voting for them in November for sure...

Apparently he managed to get reelected numerous times by simply doing what he told his constituents he would do in Washington- vote against any unconstitutional spending and laws. So weird....

Are we really going to even discuss the injun Warren who said, "You didn't build that business" as a VP to anything?

Barliman Butterbur's picture

True, but she portrays herself as anti-Wall St and a principled defender of the people. So it's a pretty big turnaround, just like it's going to be a big turnaround if/when Rubio and Cruz stump for Trump. No doubt Pocahontas lives in a very nice mansion with good security, maybe even in a gated community. She's well-insulated from the rabble she "protects". Just another phony rich liberal.

But it's OK for the democRATS to bring up Trump inviting Hillbillary and whoremaster Bill to his wedding a hundred years ago, right?

 

FUCK OFF, DOUCHEBAG.

So if she can call herself an native american to get sheet

Freaks can call them selfs transgender to get into rest rooms

Can a white male call himself A Black lesbian woman to get grants an freebees to?

BarkingCat's picture

All white men should start self identifying as black women who are lesbian.

Use their idiotic rules of this sick game against them.

Bill Clinton's speech on 02.04.14 is very mysterious. To himself?

You can't fix the problem til you get rid of all of them.  Vote them all out America!

greenskeeper carl's picture

Yes, voting in their elections. That'll show them....

That never works. Everyone thinks congress sucks, sub-10% approval rating, yet over 90% of them get reelected becoase everyone thinks THEIR guy isn't the problem, it's the rest of them that suck. This will not be solved at the ballot box.

The Deptartment of Truth commented today, "We don't believe she made these remarks, as they don't don't reflect our values as Americans, or the United Sates Government."

OpenEyes's picture

There was a time when I had such high hopes for Elizabeth Warren.  But is seems as if she's become more and more corrupted with each month she spends in the sentate.  She's worse as a 'senior' senator than she was as a junior.  She's become more infected each time she moves into the next ring closer to the center of power, the eye of Sauron.  I wonder if she's really that evil and easily swayed or if the rings of power are really that powerful that no one can resist....  anyway, she's an evil bitch now and doubt that there's any going back.

completely agree. well said.

High hopes?  Warren has always held the same beliefs you are just seeing a relaxation of the act shes been putting on.

zelator's picture

I'm beginning to think the same about Al Franken.

The Senate has a corrupting influence on its members.

BarkingCat's picture

Franken has gotten into the senate by election fraud. 

He has always been a piece of shit.

Dumb wackey bitch, been drinking too much fire water!

She blows wall street also.

And Warren and Sanders are obviously now Wall Street stooges and traitors for supporting Hitlery.  The solution is to exterminate the banker leeches who control them because these politicians are a mere distraction and easily replacable.

Kina's picture

It happens to them all. They start out with good intentions, but the closer they get to power center the more they sell out everything.

 

Warren has become bessotted with the chance to have some power, and has willingly has sold out every last bit of credibility she had left, by hitching herself to probably America's most corrupt politician.

.

So much for the holier than thou Warren who is now one of the largest hypocrit in USA history right now.  BUT don' worry Elizabeth, one day you will have to take a bullet for Clinton, she will throw you under a bus any day to save her own skin.

.

And if Clinton doesn't make POTUS, what of Warren then? She has jumped in the Wall Street Oligarch semen pit with Clinton, forever damaged goods, and seen as filth.

cherry picker's picture

Warren: "You didn't build that corruption, we did. Without us paving the way with insider trading, golden parachutes, immunity, protecting our friends in wall street and increasing the burden on the stupid citizen through Obama Care, taxation and regulation we never would get rich or appreciated."

Handful of Dust's picture

She's next in line for the remake of The Lone Ranger, but this time they're looking for a female Tonto...ya know, with all this womens lib, BLM and LGBT stuff now, it's all the fashion, very "in."

They're even considering a female James Bond, the Indian gal who played Kalinda on the Good Wives.

So Warren has a good chance, if she can ride Tonto's wild palamino!

Catullus's picture

Pocahontas is a corporate attorney's wet dream. Just another 1500 pages of US Code that you have to hire an attorney to interpret. This is child's play for Wall Street. You don't solve this problem with more regulation. You solve it with less and actually enforce the laws on fraud and embezzlement.

More of the deregulation myth. And Pocahontas is major peddler if it

Maybe you can understand this Elizabeth Fauxcahontas Warren....


Ten Bears:  These things you say we will have, we already have.

Josey Wales: That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.

Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.

Chief Dildo on the breath, way to much press for a do nothing no nothing hack.

Warren has fallen in lust with power, and now happily holds the hand of a rotting putrifying piece of flesh call Clinton.

.

Her values are those of Sanders actually...but you know, she may as well enorse Trump as Clinton, so far are they both from what she was 'supposed' to believe.  But then again as somebody said,  I have morals, but if you don't like them I have another set over here.'

.

Warren has yet to face real scrutiny, always being able to talk down upon high, but now she is squirming in the semen pit without protection, she will get the same treatment.

jt's picture

Warren had initially given me some hope that things could change.  I should have known better. Harvard, feminist, passing as minority.  The signs were all there. It didn't take long for her subservience to the dark side to be revealed.

Perhaps, along with cleaning out the bankers, politics and wall street, we should shut down the ivy league for a generation or two.  Letting their massive endowments provide health coverage for all until we can  engineer a return of sanity to academia.

My wife has long said that once you win an election the pressure to accept and adopt the corruption is too great for any mortal to withstand.

I must finally admit she is correct.

She is probably correct. I chalk it up to the fact that we're now too big to govern. We've lost the borders, language and culture. Unless we can pull those back together we're doomed within a few more generations. We're likely financially doomed well before that though.

RopeADope's picture

The Dem Establishment is using Warren to try to stay in power. If they back Clinton instead of Sanders at the convention after all their fear-mongering against Trump they risk the chance of losing power to the citizens within 4 years.

So they haul Warren out to wage an idiotic twitter war against Trump in the hope that the polls will show a higher spread come convention time that will give them cover for backing Clinton.

By her actions Warren is directly undermining Sanders chances at the convention.

Kina's picture

If Trump has his wits about him he would be quietly behind the scenes beating up the hatred between Sanders and Clinton voters, creating more issues and news items.... secretly.  So Sanders supporters will abandon the Dems come vote time.

arby63's picture

Growing up, my parents were generally Democrats. Those were the JFK days. Oh how times have changed. There isn't even a Democratic Party anymore. I'm not saying there's much of a Republican Party either but the Dems have gone batshit crazy. Not even recognizable. 

All of these so-called "blue collar" Democrats are nothing more than brain-washed illiterates and welfare recipients. Nothing left.

At least with Trump there is a slight possibility of breaking things. I mean really making certain departments and agencies completely crippled (even if by accident).
