Skip to comments.Newly uncovered documents show Elizabeth Warren’s ancestors listed as ‘white’

Newly uncovered documents posted on a blog show that two ancestors of Massachusetts U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren were listed on government forms as white, despite the Democratic candidate repeatedly saying that she comes from Native American heritage.
Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes posted census data on her blog this weekend that she says shows that Warrens mother, Pauline Herring, listed herself as white in 1940.
Barnes also posted a death certificate for Warrens Aunt Bea, who was listed as white on the form. Elizabeth Warrens name is listed on the death certificate.
The Democratic candidate once famously cited her Aunt Beas characteristically Native American high cheekbonesas evidence of her American-Indian ancestry.
Warren has been embroiled in a controversy over her claimed heritage ever since it was revealed that the Harvard law professor once touted herself as an American Indian minority.
She has since struggled to prove this, and critics argue that she claimed that heritage to further her career.
Barnes revelation that Warrens mother identified as white conflicts with a story she has told about her parents eloping over her mothers heritage.
In the 1930s, when my parents got married, these were hard issues, Warren said. My fathers family so objected to my mothers Native American heritage that my mother told me they had to elope.
Any word on high cheek bone listings?
I don’t think Elizabeth Warren even tans well.....
Not tanned or flayed...scourged maybe.
So what happens now?
She's a democrat.
The MSM plays this like it's a joke. They would NOT do the same for a Republican.
(Every picture I see of this twit - looks like she's on the verge of tears and she doesn't have an inkling of the trail of tears....ok, maybe wikipedia...)
“So what happens now?”
She gets elected to the Senate. There’s an understanding amongst dems that this ethnic stuff doesn’t matter for dems because they have pure motives.
Sure they are. ;>)))))
Lizzy Warren is a fraud. The fact she refused to speak with the Indians that tried to see her says volumes.
It's great reading. BTW, I wouldn't talk to those particular Cherokee either until they showed me their blue ID cards so I could find out what bad they purported to represent. Fur Shur I wouldn't talk to them if they were the guys trying to kick out the black Cherokee.
First, let me say that Warren is a complete fraud but in all fairness, my original birth certificate says I am “white”. Later when my tribe started to organize and make a roll, my dad had us kids legally changed to Indian. Of course my mom (3/4) and grandmother and her mother were still living and on the rolls. Both full blood. Warren can’t come up with any blood what so ever. My point being , how much does “white” mean on ones BC?
at least she HAS a birth certificate !
BC - Before Coppertone?
Ancestors listed as white. Don’t you just hate that. Not as much as Obummer and the Wookie having ancestors listed as ‘white’. Oh the horrors, how can they sleep at night?
I do not understand why this is still in doubt. With the Cherokee tribe, you are only Cherokee if the government said so. If you cannot trace direct linage to a person on the Dawes roll then you are NOT a Cherokee. That is how the government sees it, that is how the Cherokee tribe sees it. I was always told two branches of my family were Cherokee- found one branch on the Dawes roll, not the other. There were likely many Cherokee that for one reason or another were not listed, but you are NOT Cherokee if you don’t have an ancestor on there.
Look at the polls: None of her lies have hurt her support. The people of Massachusetts are going to elect a fantasist to the US Senate.
But it should come as no surprise. She's hardly the only prominent political figure who has trouble telling the truth about who she actually is, and who is more concerned with fictions in that regard than facts.
