Ready for Warren Prepares to Launch Climate Activist Coalition

warrenClimate activists are lining up behind the never-say-die campaign to draft Elizabeth Warren for a 2016 bid.

Ready for Warren, a group pushing the senator to enter the presidential race, plans to soon unveil “Environmental Activists for Warren,” National Journal has learned. The launch expected to take place later this month is the latest sign that environmentalists fear that Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic frontrunner who announced her candidacy on Sunday, won’t take a strong stand on the issues they care most about.

More than 1,000 volunteers already have signed on to participate, Ready for Warren says, culled from employees, donors, and volunteers for Washington’s most politically powerful green groups, including the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters, and Environmental Defense Fund along with progressive organizations such as 350.org, Friends of the Earth, and Greenpeace USA.

“This is one of the largest supporter groups within Ready for Warren, because combating climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing our country over the next four years and beyond,” said Erica Sagrans, the campaign manager for Ready for Warren.

Warren is best known as an anti-Wall Street crusader, not an environmental advocate. But her sharp criticism of the Keystone XL pipeline and disdain for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal that environmentalists worry could weaken environmental protections, has won the senator admiration from climate activists.

    Glad to see another [i]scientist[/i] leading this non-political movement.

    As a Native American she’s likely to have some especially insightful revelations.

    Why is it that Progressives embrace provable liars?

    When Warren applied to Penn and Harvard, she checked the box ‘Native American’, and she’s not. There is zero documentation that Liz has any Native American blood anywhere in her past.

    And Hillary…

    [i]Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

    Why?

    “[b]Because she was a [i]liar[/i],” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an [u]unethical, dishonest lawyer[/u]. She [u]conspired to violate the Constitution[/u], the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality[/b].”[/i]

    And of couse we all know about her husband or, Monica Lewinsky’s former boyfriend.

      Hmmmm… Could the fact that the mainstream media is totally compliant with left wing fraud be a factor? There’s no problem with lies when you’re never held accountable.

      So to which tribe does Liz trace her blonde roots?

    BTW, could you imagine how full-blown [i]racist[/i] it would be if a conservative candidate made false Native American claims?

      Yep! And yet look who gets laughs, and even took credit for being…

      The South gets a bad rap for its past. Both my parents were born and raised in the Deep South, and the only color I was raised to see was the different colors of military uniforms. My dad used to mentor young black men throughout the sixties as part of his tutoring at the University of Florida.

      My mom’s parents had an African-American maid, who helped raise my mother, and was as much a part of the family as anyone else. And when she passed, my grandfather paid for the funeral, and the whole family attended.

      You can find bigots anywhere, and the worst racism I have seen in my lifetime has been in Northern states.
