    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ailing presidential campaign is facing fresh scandal about her false claims of Native American heritage as the Cambridge Democrat tries to mount a 2020 comeback in delegate-rich Super Tuesday states like California. A group of 200 Native Americans issued an open letter Tuesday night scolding Warren for identifying as part Cherokee, citing new reporting from the Los Angeles Times that showed $800 million in federal grants meant for Native Americans went instead to “white members of fake ‘tribes.’”

    CHEROKEE, Iowa -- A Marcus, Iowa, man was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison for stealing copper from wind turbine sites around Marcus and burglarizing several businesses. Andrew Bock, 35, pleaded guilty in Cherokee County District Court to first-degree criminal mischief, third-degree burglary and third-offense possession of a controlled substance. Bock was charged with stealing copper and materials valued at $7,390 from nine wind turbine sites on Oct. 12 or Oct. 13. He was accused of causing $11,080 in damage to the wind turbine sites.

    Markwayne Mullin, who is hard-right and white-passing, may not seem like an Indigenous lawmaker, but he’s no anomaly.Last April, on the day the country was eagerly anticipating the release of the Mueller report, a small group of seniors in rural southeast Oklahoma woke up early to go have coffee with their congressman. There was concern for a nefarious plot underway. “The Green New Deal has nothing to do with climate change. It has to do with a federal takeover,” Rep. Markwayne Mullin said as he slowly paced between the lectern and the half-dozen rows of folding metal chairs. “Federal takeover...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will return to Oklahoma City on Sunday, where she will meet with Native American groups as part of a reported effort to blunt continuing criticism over her past claims to have Native American heritage. The 2020 hopeful, who was born in the city, will meet privately with tribal leaders -- where representatives from all of the approximately 40 federally recognized tribes in the state have been invited for the Sunday morning meeting. Later in the day she will hold a town hall meeting. The meeting will reportedly focus on Warren’s agenda for the community and is...

    A Native American activist has blasted 2020 Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), accusing her ancestors of being "white squatters" who were "complicit in Cherokee dispossession."Cherokee Nation citizen Rebecca Nagle slammed the presidential hopeful in a Huffington Post op-ed, urging Warren to "tell the truth" about her dark ancestorial past.According to Nagle, Warren's maiden family, the Crawfords, were allegedly “white squatters” on Cherokee land and were complicit in Native American oppression.

    A Native American activist and citizen of Cherokee Nation slammed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in a Huffington Post op-ed Friday, calling on her to “tell the truth” about her ancestors’ interactions with indigenous tribes — alleging that her maiden family, the Crawfords, were “white squatters” on Cherokee land. Author Rebecca Nagle penned a post titled “Elizabeth Warren Has Spent Her Adult Life Repeating A Lie.” I Want Her To Tell The Truth.” Nagle said she was unmoved by the apology Warren issued at the Native American Presidential Forum Monday, where the Massachusetts senator admitted she made a “mistake” but did...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has apologized to the Cherokee Nation for her decision to take a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry, according to reports. “Senator Warren has reached out to us and has apologized to the tribe,” tribal spokeswoman Julie Hubbard said in a statement Friday. “We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests. We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to...

    The Cherokee nation is likely inundated by white wannabees who keep claiming membership in their much-admired tribe. There's a reason the Stanford professor friend of hers, who did the DNA test, was unable to compare Warren's genome to a genuine Cherokee genome, and had to use a Latin American one instead as an approximation: The Native Americans don't want that out there. They don't like whites to manipulate it to claim membership, because they already know who their members are. If they did, they'd have every idiot out there claiming to have Cherokee blood and a claim on Cherokee tribal...

    For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. After researching her story, it is obvious that her “family lore” is just fiction. Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee–the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837. These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in...

    The mainstream media seems to be unaware that Warren has been the subject of ridicule for more than four years, when she first advanced the false claims of Native American heritage publicly while on the campaign trail in her race for the U.S. Senate seat then held by Sen. Scot Brown. GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump has no regrets for calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” and intends to keep using the term, along with “Goofy Elizabeth,” to describe the far-left senator from Massachusetts. Trump offered an apology on Saturday at a Tampa campaign rally attended by 7,000. “I’ll apologize to...

    U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren announced on Friday that her presidential campaign will be chaired by a diverse group of congresswomen elected in 2018 in a record-breaking wave of women who helped Democrats retake the U.S. House of Representatives. Presidential campaign chairs often play public-facing roles interacting with voters. Warren chose three women seen as rising stars in the Democratic Party with national profiles. Representative Deb Haaland from New Mexico is one of the first two Native American women to serve in the U.S. Congress. Representative Katie Porter, a former student of Warren’s at Harvard Law School, won a historically Republican...

    Eyeing stricter controls in the federal government’s minority contracting program, a House oversight panel on Tuesday is expected to address the findings of a Times investigation that showed that companies received more than $300 million in taxpayer-funded contracts based on unverified claims that their owners were Native American. The committee oversees the U.S. Small Business Administration, which certifies federal contractors as minority-owned. Its subcommittee on investigations will conduct the hearing.
  • Warren uses false ads to lash out at Facebook CEO

    Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren continued her campaign against Facebook on Sunday, one day after she posted false advertisements to Facebook on Saturday to see if she could prove to voters that the social media platform values profit over facts. "Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate. They’ve decided to let political figures lie to you -- even about Facebook itself -- while their executives and their investors get even richer off the ads containing these lies," Warren wrote in a series of Twitter posts Saturday criticizing Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

    CNN.COM ^ | 8/25/2019 | Harmeet Kaur,
    The Cherokee Nation announced Thursday that it intends to appoint a delegate to the US House of Representatives, asserting for the first time a right promised to the tribe in a nearly 200-year-old treaty with the federal government. It was a historic step for the Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation and its nearly 370,000 citizens, coming about a week after Chuck Hoskin Jr. was sworn in as principal chief of the tribe. The Cherokee Nation says it's the largest tribal nation in the US and one of three federally recognized Cherokee tribes. The move raises questions about what that representation in Congress...
  • Did You Know Native Americans Owned Slaves?

    06/23/2019 8:46:28 AM PDT · by gaggs · 62 replies
    A fact that is conveniently overlooked by those calling for reparations. The 13th Amendment did not free all slaves in the boundaries of modern-day US. Members of five Native American nations, the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole Nations (known as the Five Tribes), owned black slaves. Located outside the territorial boundaries of the US in a region known as Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma), these sovereign nations were not affected by proclamations or constitutional amendments. Instead, separate treaties had to be made between the US and these Native American nations not only to free slaves, but also to formally end...

    It’s just fine that Elizabeth Warren apologized to the Cherokees for falsely claiming to be one of them. It might be helpful if she also apologizes to the people of Massachusetts. She could have done it Saturday when she made her presidential campaign official, but she didn’t. Instead she reworked and expanded her attack on wealthy Americans who, she said, are not paying their fair share. Massachusetts is not Virginia where Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring, all Democrats, are all caught up in scandals of black face and sexual- harassment charges

    A Supreme Court case about jurisdiction in an obscure murder has huge implications for tribes. On the morning of June 22, 1839, the Cherokee leader John Ridge was pulled from his bed, dragged into his front yard and stabbed 84 times while his family watched. He was assassinated for signing the Cherokee Nation’s removal treaty, a document that — in exchange for the tribe’s homelands — promised uninterrupted sovereignty over a third of the land in present-day Oklahoma. That promise was not kept. Sixty-seven years later, federal agents questioned John’s grandson, William D. Polson. They needed to add him to...

    **SNIP** Warren spoke out about the threat, asked if she was concerned about being a possible target. “Look, I’m worried for all of us," Warren said. "I’m worried because it means there is a person or persons out there who really want to shut down the democratic process.” The F.B.I. is treating the case as an act of domestic terrorism, as the nationwide hunt for a suspect intensifies. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was one of the targets of the twisted plot, and spoke out for the first time after the incident. "My brave staffers and I saw those weapons of...
