  • ‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration (NY Times uses quotes)

    10/21/2018 1:33:11 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 42 replies
    The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law. A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple...

    NORMAN, Okla. — When a group appeared with a video camera among the single-story bungalows on their street, the neighbors were mystified. Delores Clark was dirty from tending the garden. Sheena Jones had just moved in. Neither of them recognized the woman who was being filmed. It was not until last week, when Senator Elizabeth Warren’s biographical video about her family history rocketed around the Internet, that they realized who had been standing outside Clark’s house. It was Warren herself, gathering footage to emphasize her family’s roots on the Oklahoma plains. “I never knew she had any connection to Oklahoma...

    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...

    FULL TITLE: Want to know when you’re going to die? Your life span is written in your DNA, and we’re learning to read the code. ------------------------------------------------------------------ It's the ultimate unanswerable question we all face: When will I die? If we knew, would we live differently? So far, science has been no more accurate at predicting life span than a $10 fortune teller. But that’s starting to change. The measures being developed will never get good enough to forecast an exact date or time of death, but insurance companies are already finding them useful, as are hospitals and palliative care teams....
  • Warren Highlights the Danger of Racial Identity

    She was mocked as "Fauxcahontas" long before President Donald Trump began referring to her as "Pocahontas," and frankly, Sen. Elizabeth Warren invited the ridicule. She is a poster child for the pitfalls of basing identity on race, and reminds us of the many furies such self-definition can unleash. What people choose to call themselves shouldn't matter to outsiders. If I want to call myself a post-Jerseyite dog lover, no one would care - unless there is affirmative action for former Jersey residents who can't skip dog videos on Twitter. What made Elizabeth Warren infuriating is that she was gaming the...
  • Elizabeth Warren struck a deal with the devil in claiming Native American ancestry for advancement

    Foxnews ^ | Eli Steele
    ..This is the trap that Warren fell into. From the very moment she claimed her small amount of Native American ancestry as an identity politics virtue, race defined her and her career at every turn. Then, just as we recently witnessed, this path led to her being exposed as a fraud before the entire nation. What a sad fate. But this is not the worst of it. Warren’s claim of Native American ancestry made her complicit in identity politics’ institutional racism. The powers behind identity politics have long abandoned the hard work of helping impoverished Americans climb out of poverty...

    Does Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren really have Native American blood running through her veins? It's scientifically impossible to know for sure, according to a collection of leading geneticists, industry experts, research scientists with expertise in indigenous genetics and Native American leaders who spoke with ABC News. The process of tracing one's ancestry is still evolving, geneticists told ABC News, and efforts to establish genetic affiliation with an indigenous group like Native Americans are at best thorny and uncertain, and, in the extreme, offensive. Some experts were critical of Warren's press conference this week and her latest declarations. Numerous experts also...
  • MSNBC Analyst Defends Warren, Suggests Cherokee Nation is Racist

    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...

    The political world was confused Monday when Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren released the results of a controversial DNA test that was years in the making. [Snip] The Cherokee Nation issued a blistering statement calling Warren's decision ... "makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens." [Snip] Then we headed inside the sprawling four story building to see if there was any sign of Warren in the museum. A detailed floor-by-floor, exhibit-by-exhibit search turned up no sign of Warren. However, then came one of our final stops,...
  • Why Many Native Americans Are Angry With Elizabeth Warren

    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.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is defending her decision to release a DNA test and political ad asserting she has a distant Native American ancestor — even as the Cherokee Nation condemns her for it, Republicans mock her, and political analysts wonder if she has crippled any hopes she had of competing in the 2020 presidential election. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me,” Warren told members of the Boston Globe editorial board Tuesday, referring to the president’s relentless mockery of a six-year-old accusation that the senator used to identify as a Native American...

The feud began with Sexton quote tweeting CNN on Warren, saying, “It’s a good thing CNN wasnt blatantly complicit in the massive, unforced error Warren pulled yesterday. That would’ve been really embarrassing. Oh, wait a minute.”

There are currently over 10 million people in Ancestry's DNA database, each of whom sent the company $99 plus tiny bit of saliva, hoping to discover more about where they came from, who they're related to, what they're made of, what hidden gifts might lie dormant within them – in short, who they really are.

    Tens of thousands workers laid off when Toys R Us went bust last year have a politically powerful new ally in their fight to win severance from the bankrupt retailer: Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The Massachusetts Democrat, who is rumored to be weighing a run for the White House in 2020, is pressing the financial firms behind the decision to liquidate Toys R Us to contribute to a fund for affected employees. "The liquidation of Toys R Us -- reportedly at the urging of your firm -- caused more than 30,000 American workers to lose their jobs without the severance they...

    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.

    A hybrid derived from the Greek words meaning “well” and “born,” the term eugenics was coined in 1883 by Sir Francis Galton, a British cousin to Charles Darwin, to name a new “science” through which human beings might take charge of their own evolution. The Eugenics Crusade tells the story of the unlikely –– and largely unknown –– movement that turned the fledgling scientific theory of heredity into a powerful instrument of social control. Perhaps more surprising still, American eugenics was neither the work of fanatics, nor the product of fringe science. The goal of the movement was simple and,...

    Cherokee Nation responded to Elizabeth Warren’s latest stunt attempting to prove she is of Native American descent. This didn’t go well… “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,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskins Jr. Said. “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...

    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...
