JOAN OF ARC"
Sen. Neal's comments on the Feb. 19 NBC debate
VEGAS, February 20, 2020 5:25:20 PM PST Last
night, Elizabeth Warren proved that she could be our Joan
Of Arc, ready to lead an army of well-intentioned souls
who cherish freedom and stand ready to support Warren in
defending it by replacing the present occupant of the White
House with a woman Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Sen. Warren was great in the Las Vegas debate. She showed
the world that she was not a librarian wanting to keep a
nation quiet but a leader willing to fight for a better
deal for the people when the forces of wealth and power
are arrayed against their interest of opportunity and survival.
I believe that Elizabeth proved to the people who were privileged
to watch that debate last night that she is very well capable
of going toe to toe with the likes of Donald J. Trump in
the general election. Her expression of wit, knowledge and
a value system, which some called an attack, were laced
with bombshells of outstanding comments and questioning
that left many asking "who is this woman?"
It was Elizabeth Warren at her best in defending a nation
that wants to be freed from the dictatorial path of Donald
J.Trump and set us again upon the road to a more perfect
Neal's review of a Warren rally
VEGAS, February 16, 2020, 9:20:41 AM PST I attended
a Warren Rally at Centennial High School on Saturday, February
15, 2020, at 12:00 noon. The senator was at the top of her
game. She spoke to an over flow crowd that seemed to be
pleased with her message. Her emphasis seemed to be on getting
a woman elected to the presidency.
A recent poll shows that,
if nominated, she can beat Trump in a head-to-head race.
Warren was buoyant as always. She showed a wit that would
be devastating to Trump, who does not take criticism well.
When she becomes the nominee of the Democratic Party, as
I have noted, if Trump tries to intimidate Warren as he
did with Hillary, by walking behind her, Warren would drop
the mike on him and kindly ask him to sit his derrière
down. Derrière is not the word I believe Warren would
use, as indicated by one button being sold at the rally:
Nasty women make sh#t happen.
As you may recall, Trump used
the phrase nasty woman in the 2016 campaign
against Hillary. This woman, Elizabeth Warren, was the last
sibling born among four. The other three were boys. She
gives you the appearance of Harper Lees Scout, the
principal character in the novel To Kill A Mocking
Sen. Warren seems anxious
to take on Trump. It was a speech that pointed out how she
became involved in politics. It was a speech that showed
her working in the back room of the US Senate chairing a
Congressional Oversight Panel (COP), purportedly to oversee
the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) that was to bail
out Big Wall Street Banks. However, it had no authority
to determine if they needed bailing out.
Warren was called to this
position by our own Senator Harry Reid, who at the time
was Senate Majority Leader. When Warren was named by Sen.
Reid to head up this program, and because its acronym was
COP, she asked Reid if she could bring handcuffs.
Sen. Warren took the position
even though it had no mandate to correct anything. Ms. Warren
soon recognized what she was overseeing was bailout money
going to large financial institutions. She did not
run from this, instead using her ingenuity to perform research
on these institutions and issue reports.
This gave her the insight to gather information into the
operation of the Big Banks. Elizabeth Warrens
appointment facilitating research of these financial institutions
was more likely than not an unintended consequence of an
appointment which had as a logical goal the removal of a
person from the field of making consumers aware of their
powers regarding financial institutions.
From the chairmanship of COP,
she was able to move the US Senate, with the assistance
of the Obama Administration, toward the creation of Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Warren's actions as
chair of COP showed that she was unwilling to be stalemated
in overseeing a law that was designed to do nothing for
Then the offer came for her
to run for the Senate against pretty boy Scott
Brown, a Senator wooing women with half-naked billboards
of himself across Massachusetts.
So Elizabeth Warren decided
to test her ability to win a senatorial race, but made it
understood she would not take her clothes off to do so.
In this race for the Senate, Warren began seventeen points
behind Brown and won the race by eight points, a 25-point
turnaround. It was a sweet victory for her because Brown
had been one of those senators who opposed her plan to help
How was Warren able to beat
a popular senator having never run for public office before?
I guess one can look upon this race from that old adage
where there is a will there is a way. Elizabeth
discovered a marvelous way to campaign against Brown.
She would seek out young girls
in the crowd and get down on one knee to introduce herself:
Hi, I am Elizabeth Warren and I am running for the
US Senate because that is what girls do. It is called
getting the vote of the parent through the children. One
thing that Elizabeth Warren proved, you can never doubt
her ingenuity. So, when I hear that she will beat Trump,
I will not have any doubt that she can.
For that reason, I called
her staff early after her announcement to run for the presidency
stating that I would support Elizabeth Warren in this endeavor.
Shortly after making my support known to the Nevada staff,
I received a call from Senator Warren thanking me for joining
the fight. If she is elected, and I have no reason to think
that she will not be, the value of that phone will be worth
much as it received a call from the first woman presidential
candidate to be elected.
This is not to say that I am motivated by greed. I am motivated
by seeing a qualified woman becoming President of the United
History has shown us where
women were in power, they did marvelous things. Take for
example the appointment of Francis Perkins as the first
woman to serve as Secretary of Labor. Francis Perkins brought
us Social Security and the minimum wage. I am a proud recipient
of a monthly Social Security check each month. For
this, I say thank you, Francis Perkins.
statement from Sen. Neal
30 April 2019 I attended a gathering for Sen.
Warren at Bonanza High School in Southern Nevada over the
weekend. This was the first time I had the opportunity to
observe the Senator in person. The woman is dynamic. I kept
thinking that I was looking at the first woman President
of the United States. Her grasp and explanation of the issues
were outstanding. I believe that the Senator will change
the method of campaigning for the Presidency. Her organizing
team is very young but seem to be very wise to the ways
At the Bonanza
meeting, there seemed to be more women than men. The women
seemed to be younger. It would appear that the women are
selecting their candidate for the Presidency and if my observation
is true, Sen. Warren may very well be the sleeper in the
race. There seem to be clues revealed in the new independent
university Quinnipiac poll that indicates when Sen. Warren
appears with other candidates, she excels. This poll shows
her running second to Biden. Which said to me, if they appear
on stage together, she will take him. I say this because
when she appeared on stage at the "She The People"
rally with Bernie and Kamala Harris, Sen. Warren took the
group by storm without any visible support going toward
such as Harris whose Sisterhood (Members of AKA Sorority)
was in the audience to lend her support. Senator Warren
had no one but herself and her message.
Poll, which was taken after this meeting, seemed to reflect
the difference in what the public thinks about Sen. Warren
and the direction she wants to take the country. I am aware
that some voters may be entertaining the question, can Elizabeth
beat Trump? It is not a question as to whom can beat; it
is a question can we the people beat Trump? The answer is
emphatically: Yes we can!! The latter may have a familiar
ring to it. Elizabeth Warren seems to be a person who understands
human nature. She would not be a Hillary Clinton running
against Donald Trump. She would be a woman of boundless
energy, intellect and wit, who could be called upon to show
the emperor with no clothes.
