Elizabeth Warren needed a Super Tuesday miracle to remain relevant in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. She didn’t get it. In fact, she received a major embarrassment by coming in third place in her home state of Massachusetts. She finally told her team on a call this morning that she was dropping out. She probably should have dropped out a couple of weeks ago.
Nevertheless, she stayed in and scored plenty of points against Mike Bloomberg during and between the debates. It’s unlikely she scored any positive points in her own direction, but she played a big role in demonstrating how weak of a candidate the New York billionaire really is. Joe Biden owes her a debt of gratitude for solidifying him as the leader in the moderate lane.
On the other side, Bernie Sanders and his supporters are upset. They believe the fact that Warren stayed in despite having very slim chances is one of the reasons Biden was able to overcome the gap and come out with big victories over Sanders.
Her troubles started when she continuously refused to admit she’d need to raise middle class taxes to pay for her Medicare-for-All plan. It became so conspicuous, even left-leaning news outlets called her out for it. When she finally unveiled a plan, it still claimed she could come up with outrageous amounts of money without raising middle class taxes. That didn’t go so well as multiple non-partisan economists claimed her math was suspicious.
But the real dagger in her campaign came in November and December when she started inching towards the center. She prided herself on somehow being a radical progressive that embraced capitalism, and the facade worked for a while. But when she started walking back Medicare-for-All and other progressive policies to try to position herself as a unity candidate, the bottom fell out on her poll numbers.
Super Tuesday was a nightmare for Warren. She is projected to be at under 70 delegates, meaning she’d need to start sweeping some states in order to be a factor at a contested convention. The best she could do was hope to use them as bargaining chips.
It may work.
Warren is likely going to make a play for a role in a Democratic White House. I once considered her the likely running mate for Sanders, but considering the bad blood between the two campaigns, that’s now very unlikely. On the other hand, doing what Ted Cruz tried to do with naming Carly Fiorina as his running mate prematurely in 2016 might be in order to steal some thunder from Biden.
Warren may also be on Biden’s short list for a cabinet position. A Vice President tap is unlikely as Biden, 77, will almost certainly go with someone younger than Warren, 70. Secretary of the Treasury, Labor, Commerce, or Education would be nice fits for the former Harvard professor.
Elizabeth Warren’s campaign has been a roller-coaster ride loaded with lies and changing perspectives. Now, she can go back to the Senate and figure out what to do with the hundreds of thousands of selfies she took on the campaign trail.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
