  • Elizabeth Warren Registered 'High Cheekbones' Aunt as White

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 7/2/12 | Michael Warren
    The death certificate of Elizabeth Warren's aunt Bess "Bea" Veneck, who famously told the Massachusetts Democrat that her grandfather's "high cheekbones" belied Warren's Cherokee heritage, identifies Veneck as "white" and not "Native American." Warren officially informed the state of Oklahoma of Veneck's death in 1999. William Jacobson reports: So Aunt Bea was Indian, sharing the same ancestry as Warren, according to Warren, and that ancestry was such an important part of who Aunt Bea was that she told the story about the high cheekbones at least a thousand times. Yet when Aunt Bea died, she was not identified as American...

    Settle down, Fauxcahontas. (Boston Herald) — On their first day in the Hub, a group of Cherokees hoping to confront Elizabeth Warren over her Native American heritage claims blasted the Democrat for trying to dismiss the ancestry controversy as a non-issue in the Bay State U.S. Senate race. “Poverty, teen suicide, our health care system,” said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes in an interview today with the Herald. “Those are issues and those are the people she stepped on and used to benefit and now she says it’s not an issue. Well, of course, to her it’s not an issue because...

    (Update: Dem Delegates knock DeFranco off ballot, hand nomination to Warren) Results are trickling in. I’m having trouble finding any webpages with official results as of this moment, but the Twittersphere has reported that Elizabeth Warren received 95.77% of the vote. If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results to come as soon as they are available. WAJ UPDATE: It’s official, the delegates have deprived voters of a choice for the first time in history, and handed the nomination to Warren. MA Democratic Party @massdems With...

    She has given clumsy answers, evaded questions, and for five weeks running allowed the story of her undocumented Native American ancestry to consume the entire Senate campaign in Massachusetts. Thursday afternoon, my phone rang with Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on the other end of the line, ready to talk. Finally. On the phone, she spoke sometimes expansively and without the slightest hint of apology about her conviction that she has maternal roots from the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. “I know who I am,’’ Warren said. “I know my heritage.’’ A moment later, in response to a question over whether she...

    If there’s anything Granny Warren hates more than a fake Indian or a plagiarist, it’s one of these damn real-estate speculators buying up the hammered middle class’ homes and flipping them for big bucks. Unless, of course, Granny is the hypocrite conniving with the banks to do the hammering and the hacking. Granny wrote in 2000 that foreclosure sales “are notorious for fetching low prices.” And boy, would she know. Here’s a foreclosed property she picked up in Oklahoma City at 2123 NW 14th St. for $4,000 in 1993. She transferred it to her brother and his wife in March...

    Native Americans — outraged by Elizabeth Warren’s admission yesterday that she told her Ivy League bosses about her purported tribal roots — accused the embattled Democrat of snubbing them and vowed to protest at tomorrow’s state convention even as she scrambled to placate supporters. “If she really wanted to reach out to our native people and have a discussion about issues that are affecting us, then she needs to talk to our tribal media,” said Rhonda Levando Gayton, president of the Native American Journalists Association. Rob Capriccioso, a reporter with Indian Country Today, said he has reached out to Warren’s...

    SOMERVILLE (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren received a boost on Wednesday from none other than Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Gov. Patrick, Warren, and grassroots supporters met on Wednesday at her campaign headquarters in Somerville just days before Democrats head to Springfield for the party's nominating convention. Warren has endured a rough few weeks following controversy regarding her Native American ancestry. At the event, Gov. Patrick stepped in and responded to a question about Warren's ancestry from FOX 25's Sharman Sacchetti. In part, Gov. Patrick replied, "On behalf of the people of the Commonwealth, we...

    Sen. Brown demands Harvard correct record on Elizabeth WarrenBy Josh Lederman - 05/25/12 01:44 PM ET Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is calling on Harvard University President Drew Faust to correct its diversity statistics after it was revealed that his opponent, Democrat Elizabeth Warren, was listed as a minority despite failing to meet federal guidelines to be considered Native American. Brown's demand followed a Boston Globe report Friday showing that both Harvard, where Warren teaches law, and the federal government have specific criteria determining who can be listed as Native American in diversity statistics provided to the government, and that Warren...

  • Did Elizabeth Warren plagiarize her recipes in “Pow Wow Chow”?

    Alternate headline: “Fake Indian in real trouble.” I don’t know, guys. I’m grudgingly coming around to the idea that maybe it’d be better if she won in November. We can’t afford to lose her; she’s a daily one-woman content goldmine for the blogosphere, every bit the equal of Martha Coakley. A blogger has to eat, and she’s serving up an awful lot of pow wow traffic chow. But apparently it’s based on someone else’s recipe: "Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members...

    For nearly three weeks, Scott Brown’s campaign has been battering Elizabeth Warren for listing herself as a Native American on a legal directory and then being billed as a minority law professor at Harvard University. Now, Warren has a Democratic critic, too. Warren’s primary opponent, Marisa DeFranco, who is trying to raise her profile in the race, is arguing that voters should be concerned about Warren’s “lack of a clear, consistent message” in response to the Native American controversy. “I’m not sure what her answer is because it’s been so various,” DeFranco said today. DeFranco said that, in general, it...

    Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian, has another problem with the Pow Wow Chow cookbook. It seems that at least two of her “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families” are identical to ones from The New York Times [NYT] that were printed in 1979. And they’re not just from any eatery either — the recipes came from Le Pavillon, the fabulous French restaurant that domin-ated le haute cuisine in Man-- hattan from 1941 to 1966. Amazing, too, that Granny’s recipes for Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing, and Cold Omelets With Crab Meat, while no doubt popular along the...
  • Did Elizabeth Warren Plagiarize Her 'Pow Wow Chow' Recipes?

    The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey. Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members of the Cherokee tribe, are described in a New York Times News Service story as originating at Le Pavilion, a fabulously...

    If I might make one suggestion before the updated version of the “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook is released: Next time, Liz, hold the mayo. Even if you were 1/1000th Native American — which you’re not — and even if Cherokees did hold pow wows — which Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes told the Herald yesterday they don’t — even then, your contribution to authentic teepee cuisine is “Crab With Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing?” Why didn’t you throw in Tuna Casserole and Some Twinkies while you’re at it? Like her recipe (“serve salad with remaining mayo on the side”), everything about Liz Warren...

    You can almost feel sorry for the moonbat community of Massachusetts as they contemplate the rubble of the Elizabeth Warren campaign. They thought they were putting up a modern-day Joan of Arc. Instead, it turns out they’ve found the Rosie Ruiz of politics. Of course they’re conceding nothing — any day now, the Globe will be publishing an editorial exhorting the voters to elect her as the first female Native American member of the U.S. Senate. But aren’t the rich Trustafarians who want to pretend there’s no story here the very same liberals who supposedly believe so fervently in affirmative...

    The race for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts has taken a turn toward the absurd. The contest pits two highly qualified candidates — Scott Brown, the incumbent, who made history by snatching Ted Kennedy’s seat away from the Democrats, and challenger Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law professor and whiz-kid of the Obama administration who created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. If any election could be counted on to maintain a high-minded tone and stick to important issues, it’s this one. Instead, Topic A is Warren’s facial features. From a campaign standpoint, Warren hasn’t done much to end this silly brouhaha. She...

    The controversy over Elizabeth Warren's claim to Native American ancestry shows no signs of dying down, and is now threatening to derail her campaign for Republican Scott Brown's Massachusetts Senate seat. Politico reporter Maggie Haberman has now uncovered Pa 1997 piece from the Fordham Law Review that refers to Warren as "the first woman of color" hired by Harvard Law School. The piece cites as its source Harvard Law spokesman Michael Chmura, the same spokesman who bragged about Warren's Native American heritage to the Harvard Crimson in 1996. Warren has so far dismissed the story, which first surfaced when the...
  • At Harvard, Elizabeth Warren known as tough, demanding, dynamic prof; heritage claims 'ludicrous'

    Teaching her class at Harvard Law School one day, professor Elizabeth Warren called on a student who was unprepared. The student said, “I’ll pass.” Warren’s response was, “Not likely.” That story, passed from one class to the next about Warren, exemplifies the way colleagues and former students view the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts. Warren is known as a tough and demanding professor. She is also dynamic, well-prepared and treats each student as an individual, past students and colleagues say. “She expects a lot,” said Adam Levitin, a professor at Georgetown Law School who was a student...

    If it seems like I've been enjoying Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren's slow motion train wreck just a little bit, it's probably because I am.  For a refresher on the basic facts, review my primer from last week.  In one of my subsequent posts on the matter, I noted with some bemusement the coincidence that Harvard continues to list just one of its law professors as a Native American -- but refuses to say who it is.  I bet you can guess why.  This is all a big non-issue, though, the Warren campaign informs us, because the professor-turned-candidate received no academic...

    Breitbart ^ | 5/8/12 | Michael Leahy
    For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American. When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J. Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee.After researching her story, it is obvious that her "family lore" is just fiction. As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as...

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown demanded that Elizabeth Warren release her law school applications and personnel files today, saying questions about Warren’s Native American heritage mean she must answer, “whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a professor.” The demand comes two days after the Massachusetts Republican Party called for Harvard to investigate potential “academic fraud” committed by Warren. “Serious questions have been raised about the legitimacy of Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American ancestry and whether it was appropriate for her to assume minority status as a college professor. Her changing stories, contradictions and refusal to...

    Shelly Lowe, executive director of Harvard University's Native American Program (HUNAP), told Breitbart News today that U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren had not, to her knowledge, participated in the program's events while Warren was a professor at Harvard. Last week, Warren explained that she had listed herself as Native American "in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am." However, she had not been involved in HUNAP, the most obvious avenue for meeting fellow Native American faculty and students. Warren, who is...
