Fauxcahontas’ 1/32 Cherokee claim debunked
Human Events ^ | May 14, 2012 | John Hayward

Posted on 05/15/2012 5:28:37 AM PDT by Zakeet

It’s official: Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren isn’t even 3 percent Cherokee. Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com counts coup:

The slender thread upon which Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she is 1/32 Cherokee rests—a purported 1894 marriage license application—has been exposed as non-existent. Based on a review of the original marriage records found in the files of the Logan County, Oklahoma Court Clerk’s office in Guthrie, Oklahoma, and the statements of ReJeania Zmek, the Court Clerk of Logan County, Oklahoma, it is likely that the ephemeral 1894 marriage license application never existed.

“In modern times we keep marriage license applications,” she said. “The way they’re issued now, you do the application, then you do the license. We currently do keep records of marriage license applications,” she said, explaining that this practice didn’t begin until around 1950.

Leahy offers a scan of the documentation – or, rather, non-documentation – at the link above, showing us a marriage license with blank columns for the race of both bride and groom. It looks like the “Cherokee marriage application” myth was launched entirely on the basis of an unsubstantiated claim in a family newsletter from 2006.

The only other evidence the Warren campaign’s mad scramble for documentation has produced is a cookbook edited in 1984 by Warren’s first cousin, and entitled Pow Wow Chow: A Collection of Recipes From Families of the Five Civilized Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, & Seminole. There doesn’t appear to be any documentary evidence of actual Indian heritage on the part of Warren’s cousin, either. And here I was, wondering if this story could get any sillier.

So even her BS was a lie.

These stories are campaign gold. A typical voter may not want to focus on what the long term economic implications of her overregulating agenda are but this is something they can not only wrap their mind around but have a good laugh about as well. And it’s a tarbaby that she’ll not be able to get rid of - what can she even say at this point?

"ow Wow Chow: A Collection of Recipes From Families of the Five Civilized Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, & Seminole. "

Seminole and Creek are "civilized tribes" ?

I guess that 'author' hasn't ever been to a pow-wow and heard the running rumors about "Creek boys"....lol!
(its "hide your women - the Creek boys are here!")

And, as I remember, the Seminoles never surrendered.

She can always claim she boinked Robert Byrd, who is a descendant of Pocahontas. Since Byrd isn’t around to deny it, she can claim her affair shared their blood (and other bodily fluids) and thereby made her a descendant of Pocahontas as well.

You know, you’re both right. This will at best be scrubbed from the news cycle. My first reaction was based upon a just, rational world. Rats do have their own set of rules. Many moons ago there was a notion of equality for everyone, but rats are viewed as being more equal by too many complicit institutions. Media, big education (Haaaavad), too many courts, and others. For them the ends justify any means.

This woman has no shame. Like a cancer, years and years of liberal indoctrination have destroyed her from the inside. She is now just another myopic delusional miscreant. The product of a social experiment gone terribly awry.

Since she has shown such honor and integrity previously, no doubt she'll immediately start paying back the monetary and academic advantages she has enjoyed, with interest and with humility.

Sad to think that she took advantage of something that was intended to help those she pretended to be, but not all that surprising.

If she used a lie to open doors that wouldn't open otherwise, then isn't her entire career built upon a lie?

Will she find the character required to 'fess up and own her shame?

For her sake and for the example she could be for others, one hopes so.

Plus, it’s Massachusetts. The Globe is covering for her. And local news has stopped covering this. The story only exists on talk radio.

Still.... Brown may win 3-4 points from this, which could be decisive.

Fortunately, she’s so arrogant that she refuses to come clean. When asked about this fraud, she says “I’m proud of my native American heritage, but let’s not allow the Brown campaign to distract us from Wall Street reform...”

Like with most liberals, its difficult to determine where the lying ends and the delusion begins.

She has also been slow in backing away from the story of her fictitious hard-scrabble childhood.

My wife has a similar family lore about a g-grandmother being Iroquois. While there are no records to prove it, my wife's sister had a family DNA sample analyzed which confirmed genetic markers for Indian ancestry marking my wife potentially 1/16 Native American. Too bad my wife didn't take the same advantages of minority status in pursuing her academic career as Warren did as my wife has a lot better evidence and likely wouldn't be saddled with all those school loans.

Warren claim that a single drop of minority blood makes you a minority smacks of the Nazi racial purity laws and the one drop rules of the segregated south.

Awww, c’mon.

I’m sure that, somewhere in her family tree, she shares a common ancestor with the Cherokees.

But its probably a lemur.

Sens. Harry Byrd (Sr. & Jr.) were descended from Pocahontas. Robert Byrd of WV was poor White trash from North Carolina named Cornelius Sale.

She took some small Cherokee ration
Put this on her information
"Native A," although it's slight
She checked the box even though she's white

Took a while till it was known
That Liz is Anglo to the bone
And all the claims she made before
Aren't Lizzie Warren's anymore

Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high

She took the whole Indian fable
Used it for her PC label
Though she's blond with eyes of blue
She's still a redskin through and through

So proud you hold your cheekbones high

But maybe someday when she's beat
Cherokee Checkbox will retreat

Do you have a link for that? I was under the impression that the Byrd political families were all related. I think a guy named John Bolling, who was a direct descendant of the Rolfe-Pocahontas marriage was the common link.

But I could be wrong.

Unless someone can demonstrate otherwise, there is no relation between Robert Byrd (who was renamed by an aunt, and as I said, his real last name was “Sale”) and the Byrds of Virginia (who were, essentially, considered Virginia “Royalty”). I think some misguided folks in WV thought their Byrd was one of the VA Byrds.

Quite correct. I also found this ancestry on Robert Byrd as well:

http://www.wargs.com/political/byrd.html

Not sure of the ancestry of his aunt's husband who furnished him with the Byrd surname, but that wouldn't be by blood anyway.

I stand corrected. Likewise, I imagine the famous name probably didn't hurt him in getting his political career started. As I recall, Harry F. Byrd Jr. & Sr. lived near Winchester, Virginia, not far from the West Virginia border.
