Exclusive: Eloped? Elizabeth Warren's Parents Married in Religious Ceremony
breitbart.com ^ | 6/1/12 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Posted on 06/01/2012 10:25:46 AM PDT by ColdOne

Last night, in an interview with the Boston Globe, Elizabeth Warren claimed that her parents were forced to elope because her father’s family objected to her mother’s Native American heritage:

"In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues,’’ Warren said. “My father’s family so objected to my mother’s Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope. [emphasis added]

Breitbart News has obtained a copy of what it believes to be Warrens' parents’ marriage certificate from Hughes County, Oklahoma, dated January 4, 1932. The marriage took place in Holdenville, Oklahoma, the county seat, located approximately 14 miles from Wetumpka, Oklahoma, which both the 21-year-old groom, Donald J. Herring, and 19-year-old bride, Pauline Reed, declared as their residence.

WarrenParentsMarriage -

Marriage Certificate of Elizabeth Warren’s parents, Donald Herring and Pauline Reed

According to the document, the marriage was performed by Sidney H. Babcock, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church South of Holdensville, Oklahoma.

Typically, couples that elope do not marry in a church, or in their place of residence.

And I thought Ward Churchill was a hoot. You know, I think about 1000 years ago one of my ancestors in Ireland may have had a child by a black man! If so I want my rights! I am sick and tired of being held down by the man! The test for fireman is racist! I want my additional 10 point credit because of my new found race! Where be my affirmative actions? I am Trayvon!

Wow, I see now, she is ashamed to white, I get it, well friends I don’t think Native American Indians of different tribes, like Apache, Sioux, and others will like this.

Since her proclamation, I have question - have she ever visit her suppose own familia in reservations?

I also know that each tribe has different dialect; can she speak fluently of tribe she says is she from?

Hmmmmmmm, she is on idiot simple as this.

I am sorry if I misspoke, this is just to surreal for reality.

Merci

I’m starting to think she is mentally ill.

She just can’t let go of this Cherokee thing, nor can she stop herself from giving voice to all the “family lore” (ie. fantasies). She also seems incapable of recognizing that a majority of people do NOT care about her constant burnishing of her leftist, racial bona-fides.

They had to elope because of a thimble-full of Cherokee blood? In Oklahoma people brag about their Cherokee blood. Including, evidently, people who don’t have any.

Probably correct. Its not hip to be White anymore.

Even so, its only reaonable to label yourself somehting when you’re 1/4 or more. After that, it starts getting ridiculous. Saying your 1/32 Indian should be ignored by any minority beancounters.

That would make her mother only 1/16 Cherokee, not enough to be officially recognized by the Cherokee Nation as being one of them. This woman keeps digging the hole deeper for herself.

To be fair to Elizabeth Running-Mouth Warren, I know of several elopements in which the couple were married in a church after arranging for two witnesses and a minister. This is not relevant to her creative writing project on family history.

Not mentally ill, pleeeze, we hear enough about that excuse given for far too many wrongs.

What this woman is, is a chronic liar, who like those who rely on lies to explain their past, must continue to cover up the first lie, with many, many, many others.

That's why "bearing false witness" is one of the 10!

First off, I don’t believe that a word the Ms Warren says, but...

Friends of my parents were out on a date, decided to get married, found a church that was open and pulled in a couple of people off the street as witnesses and got married

So, you can elope and be married in a church. At least you could in the 1920’s.

BTW, this marriage lasted over 65 years till the husband died at the age of 96, so spur of the moment decisions can work out okay.

Elizabeth Warren keeps flapping her gums on her Indian ancestry because she fears civil or criminal lawsuits for illegally claiming to be an Indian.

Otherwise, there is no reason why she would make the frivolous claim that her parents eloped because her fake 1/16th Cherokee mother had high cheekbones and her father’s family were biased against high cheekboned people.

Warren’s family came to Oklahoma at the end the 19th century, part of the land rush that preceded statehood.

Her grandmother, Hannie Crawford Reed, who had already lost her own mother, drove a horse-drawn wagon from Missouri to the territory at the age of 13, according to family lore. Hannie’s father rode ahead on a horse.

Salve Friend I think she has went over a bridge long ago, I think. Psychosis (from the Ancient Greek ψυχή "psyche", for mind/soul, and -ωσις "-osis", for abnormal condition or derangement) means abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality". People suffering from psychosis are described as psychotic. Psychosis is given to the more severe forms of psychiatric disorder, during which hallucinations and delusions and impaired insight may occur.[2] Some professionals say that the term psychosis is not sufficient as some illnesses grouped under the term "psychosis" have nothing in common (Gelder, Mayou & Geddes 2005). Indeed, a complex constellation of neurological and psychological factors can result in the altered signalling observed in psychosis. In otherwise normal individuals, exogenous ligands can produce psychotic symptoms. NMDA receptor antagonists, such as ethanol and ketamine, can replicate a similar psychosis to that experienced in schizophrenia.[3] Prolonged or high dose use of psychostimulants will alter of function like the manic phase of bipolar disorder.[4] NMDA antagonists replicate some of the so called "negative" symptoms e.g., thought disorder in subanasthetic doses, and catatonia in high doses. Psychostimulants, especially in one already prone to psychotic thinking, can cause some "positive" symptoms, such as delusional beliefs, particularly those persecutory in nature. However, some positive symptoms lack a simple neurotransmitter-based explanation, specifically, the auditory hallucinations observed in schizophrenia. These have a much more complex genesis, involving abnormal synaptic plasticity, and the formation of a "parallel process" within the brain. Of specific interest is the entorhinal cortex, which has much less (indirect) connections to the tertiary auditory cortex, as well as direct connections to the hippocampus, the most active region of neurogenesis in the adult brain. The absence of layer IV in this portion of the temporal lobe means much less interneuronal "buffering" is present. As such, there are many more connections between the large pyramidal neurons of layer V and the relatively small pyramidal neurons of layer III. As such, the unique structure of this area allows its cortiocortical efferents, specifically layer III to layer I of the prefrontal cortex, to exert much excitatory, to the globally modulatory frontal lobe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychosis Merci

She is a Liberal therefore and ergo she truly believes these things are true, because she said they are true. To an intellectual liberal, reality is a mental construct and is whatever the liberal desires it to be. The weaker ones get all fumblemouthed trying to defend these Truths because somewhere back in the deepest recesses of their brains there is a wisp of doubt.

That's the whole truth right there. I have family in Oklahoma. At every family reunion, someone is bragging about getting their membership card/number from The Cherokee Nation.

Come to think of it, that's where Breitbart needs to focus. Members of The Cherokee Nation get some extensive healthcare benefits and tuition grants.

I think that woman needs to get some serious help my friend.

She is not happy to be white, she is insulting Native American Indians, she is some peace of work. Well I think she learned from the Master, who just insulted my best friends in Poland.

Liars don’t live to long before being expose.

All the people in media had to do is this:

Talk to me in your native language of your tribe?

Every Native American Indian speaks their dialect of their tribe, can she?

Truth is in a pudding.
