Elizabeth Warren’s white great grandfather shot an Indian

Elizabeth Warren still is not Cherokee. She never was.

Her family lore is grossly exaggerated, in all likelihood by Warren herself not her parents. Yet whenever anyone questions this family lore, Warren acts like it is an attack on her family, thereby shutting down challenges to the stories.

Warren relies on family lore because it’s hard to disprove what she claims she was told. It’s why Warren digs in deeper with her family lore stories as the campaign goes on. She thinks she has found a safe place.

Yet there is plenty of evidence that the story about her parents eloping because her mother was Native American is not true, Warren didn’t self-identify as Native American until she was 38 and climbing the law professor ladder, and even her own adult nephew who researched family genealogy called the Native American claim just rumor. The Boston Globe’s attempt to back up this family lore actually ended up calling it into serious question.

But, while Warren thinks she has found a safe place in her family lore, it’s still worth pointing out that she is not Cherokee. The Cherokee line supposedly was through her maternal grandparents, the Crawfords.

But just to put another piece of evidence on the table, real Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes has come up a newspaper clipping from the Muskogee Times Democrat on August 17, 1906.

The newspaper clipping relates to a story about how Warren’s great grandfather, John H. Crawford, shot a real Indian and was identified in the newspaper as white.

That's the old story. Now, why don't you track down her relationship with the Apostolic Charismatic Church of the First Born, or the Old Apostolic Lutheran Church, or the General Assembly and the Church of the First Born, or Faith Assembly, or ~ just a whole lotta' names of churches that don't take sick babies to the doctor (they let them die).

She grew up right there in the First Born Belt ~ on the first notch, right at the buckle.

Crawford family is a good place to start ~ their genealogy for their relatives in Indiana has 50 families (them and their cousins) with a divorce and remarriage situation within a single church congregation that would break the bank in Las Vegas!

Either even, or Warren up slightly...one poll not long ago had Brown up by 5. I think Brown may pull it out, by a couple per centage points (he beat Coakley by 5 points or maybe 3 or 4).
The media and polls are rigged, many in the Commonwealth are brainwashed but he could still pull it off.

Andrew Jackson, an icon of the Democratic Party, ordered and was responsible for the act of ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Cherokee people called “The Trail of Tears”. Imagine, if you will, a member of a political party that traces its roots to the Nazis making a false claim of 1/16th or 1/32nd Jewish ancestry in order to receive preferential consideration for a post at a university and other “perks”. Later it’s discovered that this person’s actual ancestor was in the Waffen SS and participated in the Holocaust. Wonder how Jews might react.

If he nixed her great, great grandfather, her story stands and another begins.

Warren is just about as real an Indian as Johnny Depp's coo coo version of Tonto.

Sadly the only thing people will remember from the new Lone Ranger movie is how utterly stupid Depp looked/was walking around with a dead bird on his head. Talk about scene stealing and ruining what otherwise may have been a halfway decent film... it is laughable.

I read somewhere (Ch5 website?) today that Brown was 58 and Warren 30 something.
