  • 'Worried for all of us': Sen. Warren gives thoughts on explosive device threats

    **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...

    Watched HALLOWEEN 40 this morning with my son. It stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and was produced by Jamie as well as by John Carpenter and Cody Carpenter. The screenplay/writing was Excellent! In a scene -- no spoilers! -- a boyfriend of Laurie's granddaughter tells her parents that he's "7% Cherokee". Someone in the audience yelled out: "That's still 7% more than Liz Warren!!" I live in a predominantly African-American neighborhood here in Southern Maryland, and the audience was packed with mostly African-American patrons - about 90%. This scene and reply brought a smile to my face. After...
  • MSNBC Analyst Defends Warren, Suggests Cherokee Nation is Racist

    10/18/2018 9:48:33 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 60 replies
    Desperate to defend Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous political stunt of taking a DNA test to try to prove Native American heritage, late Thursday morning, MSNBC Political Analyst and SiriusXM Director of Progressive Programming Zerlina Maxwell actually insinuated that the Cherokee Nation was racist, following their statement condemning Warren. Noting that Warren “long claimed that she’s part Cherokee,” anchor Craig Melvin cited: “Cherokee Nation, Secretary of State Cherokee Nation, said in a statement, ‘DNA testing cannot prove that Warren is Cherokee or any other tribe.’” The host asked: “Do we think that the decision itself was a mistake? Do we...

  • Why Many Native Americans Are Angry With Elizabeth Warren

    NY Times ^ | Octover 17, 2018 | Maggie Astor
    If Senator Elizabeth Warren thought that releasing her DNA test results showing Native American ancestry would neutralize a Republican line of attack, she was wrong. The test — part of her strategic preparations for a likely presidential campaign — did not placate President Trump, who has mocked Ms. Warren as “Pocahontas” and once promised $1 million to a charity of her choice if a DNA test substantiated her claims of Cherokee and Delaware heritage. And her announcement of the results angered many Native Americans, including the Cherokee Nation, the largest of the country’s three federally recognized Cherokee tribes.

    NBC News ^ | October 17, 2018 | by Kelly Hayes and Jacqueline Keeler
    Although her intention was to push back against Trump, Warren has provided an unwitting assist to those attempting to take away tribal sovereignty. Warren stated that she is not a member of any tribe, but her efforts to connect DNA and Native American heritage could nevertheless have unintended consequences. It is a common joke amongst Native people that the phrase “I’m 1/16th Cherokee” (or in Warren’s case, 1/64th to 1/1024th Cherokee - the DNA test can only offer up a possible range) is a “white proverb.” While the framing of Native identity that has emerged in discussions of Warren’s background...

    Elizabeth Warren is the epitome of why racial preferences should be outlawed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) typifies the Democrat shrieking shrew who is angry all of the time. Warren, who falsified her job application to Harvard claiming she was Cherokee (based on her grandmother telling her she had high cheek bones), played the affirmative action card, and allowed Harvard Law School to call her the school’s only Native American professor. Newly released DNA test revealed Warren may have 1/1024 Native-American ancestry. Yet she lied about her ancestry to climb the well-paid academic ladder.

    "I have serious concern over Elizabeth Warren's claim that she is a non-enrolled Native American, "proved" by DNA. ..... By trying to make Native American identity about race instead of tribal sovereignty, Warren has done more harm with this DNA test than she ever did with her false claim of being Cherokee. I truly hope authentic Native Americans watch what she does more than they listen to what she says. She is not a friend to us or our tribal governments. Instead, she is a "skeen yoneg" [white devil] and she's leading an attack on tribal sovereignty that could destroy...

    Does this clueless woman have no judgment? Does she have no shame? In the 1990s, Warren self-described herself as a “woman of color”. There is a 1997 Fordham Law Review article in which Warren is described as Harvard’s Law faculty, first woman of color. The footnote at the end of the article, because law review articles are rigorously researched and fact-checked for accuracy, refers to a conversation had with the news director of Harvard Law School, in August 1996, which confirms in Harvard Law’s view that Warren is a woman of color.

    American Thinker ^ | 10/16/2018 | Monica Showalter
    So Elizabeth Warren was doing a victory dance about her DNA test showing 'strong evidence' she may have 1/1,024 or 0.09 percent Native American lineage. In hot pursuit, she called on President Trump to 'pay up' with his $1 million offer to the charity of her choice for taking the DNA test he said he would toss to her at a future presidential debate, earlier. As the network press admiringly gushed about the whole 'gotcha,' she was convinced she had him cornered. Well, sorry, that debate hasn't happened yet and now it's doubtful it ever will, because Warren is...

    Leftists responded with rage and anger after Cherokee Nation came out on Monday to criticize Elizabeth Warren for "undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage." Warren earlier in the day released the results of a DNA test conducted at "a private lab in Georgia" which said she might possibly be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1,024th Native American (which means she may have less Native American DNA than the average white American). "Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong," Cherokee Nation...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) says “no one, not even the president of the United States will ever” be able to take away her purported American Indian heritage. After releasing a 2018 midterm election October surprise on Monday, wherein the liberal lawmaker released the findings of a DNA test showing she is likely less than one percent American Indian, Warren released a short, five-minute documentary video in which she says Trump cannot “take” her ancestry from her. “Some people have questioned my heritage and my family history,” Warren says. “Maybe they do it to insult me … Maybe they do it...

    She’s the Richard Blumenthal of intersectionality, minus the apology. Do you want to know what media bias looks like? Earlier today, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren released DNA test results that confirmed that she misled employers, students, and the public about her Native American heritage for years. Bizarrely, all too many members of the media treated the results as vindicating her. Down is up. Black is white. The imperatives of the resistance apparently dictate propping up a liar — as long as she might be able to beat President Trump in 2020. Here are the facts. For an extended period of...

    Later in the day, The Cherokee Nation issued a statement responding to the report: “A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong."

    The Cherokee Nation on Monday afternoon called out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for attempting to claim Native American heritage by releasing the results of a DNA test. The test, conducted by a Stanford University Professor Carlos Bustamante, showed that Warren has a Native American ancestor going back six to 10 generations ago, making her somewhere between 1/32ndand 1/1024thAmerican Indian. The Cherokee Nation in a statement said using a DNA test to claim connection with a tribal nation is “inappropriate” and “wrong.” “Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even...

    The third chapter of Donald Yates’ history of the Cherokee (Old World Roots of the Cherokee, McFarland 2012) contains the genetic story of the Cherokee Indians based on DNA Consultants’ 2009 study “Anomalous Mitochondrial DNA in the Cherokee,” but it is no easy read, being written for an academic audience. Earlier this year Yates published a condensation of his work in the series Cherokee Chapbooks, called Old Souls in a New World: The Secret History of the Cherokee Indians (Panther’s Lodge). This publication has no footnotes, bibliography or pictures; those must be sought in Old World Roots and scholarly articles...

    President Trump mocked U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee heritage claims again last week with an offer of $1 million to the charity of her choice if a DNA test proves her right. Trump made the rambling taunt at a Montana rally. “I’m gonna get one of those kits and in the middle of the debate when she proclaims that she’s of Indian heritage, because her mother says she has high cheekbones, that’s her only evidence that her mother said she has high cheekbones. We will take that little kit, and say, but we have to do it gently because we’re...

    President Donald Trump escalated a familiar attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren Thursday night, mocking the Massachusetts Democrat and leading potential 2020 rival for her claim of Native American heritage. He revived his nickname for her — "the fake Pocahontas" — and told the crowd at his Montana campaign rally that should the two find themselves on a debate stage, he would challenge her to submit to genetic testing to prove that she has Native American ancestors. "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're...
