By now, America is accustomed to taking everything Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren says with a grain of salt, as her affinity for stretching the truth has already caught up with her on more than one occasion. But apparently, that doesn’t mean she has come even remotely close to learning her lesson. Because now, she as graduated from stretching truths to telling bald-faced lies.
At this leg of the race, it has become increasingly apparent that Warren is losing. After experiencing a momentary high back in the fall of last year, her poll numbers and donations have steadily declined, putting her entire campaign in jeopardy. So it is no surprise that she would be willing to try just about anything at this point to change that.
We just aren’t sure that spreading a complete falsity to the entire country on national television is the way to do that.
And no, we aren’t talking about her accusation that her opposition and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg ordered a member of his staff to get an abortion back in 1995. Although, that is a possibility as well.

Warren has been out for blood recently, and Bloomberg’s to be exact, as he appears to be stealing the show from her at the moment. And so when videos and other information started showing up about Bloomberg’s questionable past, Warren was quick to jump in and use those to attack him. And that continued on Tuesday night’s Democratic primary debate in South Carolina.
Warren claimed that as a woman, she knew all too well what having a sexist boss like Bloomberg could do and proceeded to tell the nation that back in 1971, she had been fired from her job in a local public school because she was pregnant. But as she said, “at least I didn’t have a boss who said to me, ‘kill it.’”
Now, we can’t really comment on Bloomberg’s supposed treatment of pregnant women in the past, as these accusations are without any evidence and, therefore, unknown.
As for Warren’s story, on the other hand, there is plenty of information to prove that hers is a complete lie.
The first comes from an interview Warren participated in in 2007, according to Breitbart News, where she describes a much different ending to her position in the Riverdale, New Jersey school district.
She said, “I was married at 19, and then graduated from college, actually, after I’d married. And my first year of post-graduation, I worked – it was in a public school system, but I worked with children with disabilities. And I did that for a year. And then that summer, I actually didn’t have the education courses so I was on an ‘emergency certificate,’ it was called. And I went back to graduate school, and took a couple of courses in education, and said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work out for me.’ I was pregnant with my first baby, so I had a baby, and stayed home for a couple of years…”
It sounds like a traumatic sexist experience, right? I didn’t think so either.
Instead of talking about an unreasonable boss or being fired, she stated that she figured out that public education was not what she wanted to do with her life and moved on.
And the Riverdale Board of Education minutes from that year second this conclusion, according to information reported by the Washington Free Beacon in October.
The minutes for a meeting on April 21, 1971, show that Warren’s employment contract had been extended for another year, meaning that they wanted her to work there. Then a meeting only two months later, on June 16, 1971, note that is was “with regret” that Warren had sent them a letter of resignation.
If you don’t believe us, check out the minutes here.
If she were fired for being pregnant, there wouldn’t have been minutes claiming that they still wanted her on their staff. And neither would there be proof of a resignation letter.
Is this beginning to sound familiar at all, maybe a tad bit similar to the claim she made to be of Native American heritage?
The fact is Warren obviously can’t tell reality from fantasy anymore if she ever could. Clearly, just as she claimed to be of different origins for professional gain, she now claims to be treated wrongly for political ones.
Luckily, America isn’t buying her lies and definitely won’t be electing her as President.
