    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...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren has declared herself ready to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate in the US presidential election. The Massachusetts senator – popular among the progressive wing of the Democratic party – made the declaration shortly after endorsing Clinton, calling her “a fighter with guts” who would keep Donald Trump out the White House. In an interview on MSNBC, Warren was asked by Rachel Maddow: “If you were asked to be Secretary Clinton’s running mate, do you believe you could do it?” Her response was concise: “Yes, I do.”

    In this crazy GOP primary season, I have come out frequently for John Kasich although I could have lived with Marco Rubio as well. Given the available choices, a Kasich/Rubio ticket would be a pretty formidable duo to face either Clinton or Sanders in November. For me, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are non-starters. In this post, I want to outline why I can’t vote for Ted Cruz. Cruz promises to deport 12 million illegal immigrants Not only does Cruz hold a morally reprehensible policy, in my view, but he toughened his position to pander to the pro-Trump crowd. In...

    RED CLAY, Tenn. — For the first time since the Cherokee Removal in 1838, the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes will hold a joint council meeting at Red Clay State Historic Park. The gathering of the Cherokee Nation, Eastern Band of Cherokee and the United Keetoowah Band on Aug. 28-29 also marks the 177th anniversary of the first overland detachment that departed on the Trail of Tears, according to a park news release. Along with the council meeting, the event will feature an all-day Cherokee encampment with re-enactors and living history exhibits; Native American dancers and stickball games; arts and...

    Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew is set to announce on Thursday that the Bureau of Engraving and Printing will remove Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill, in favor of a woman. The change could happen as soon as 2020. The announcement came via Nancy Lindborg, president of the US Institute of Peace, who tweeted out the news.... ...The choice to replace Hamilton on the $10 bill as opposed to President Jackson on the $20 bill is a curious one. There were clear reasons to replace Jackson on the bill. Jackson has long been reputed as a deeply flawed...

    The story of the Democrats (available in its entirety free; see details below) continues by exposing Andrew Jackson as the fake he was. The Trail of Tears Perhaps the worst instance of Jackson’s willingness to emulate the bellicose traditions of European empires was the genocide of the Cherokee Nation known as the Trail of Tears. It was carried out under the Indian Removal Act which was championed by Georgia Democrat Senator John Forsyth. Under its provisions the US Army would force the Cherokees to walk from as far away as North Carolina to modern day Oklahoma. The Bataan-like march killed...

    As Biden speaks at event named for Old Hickory tonight, more appalling stories show party should dump him as icon Spring means that appeals for money are bursting forth from both major political parties. It also means Democratic officials in states and counties around the country are busy getting people out to their major fundraiser, the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. And theyÂ’re bringing in the big guns: Vice President Joe Biden will keynote the South Carolina DemocratsÂ’ dinner tonight.But after an election in which Democrats rode a wave of minority support to keep the White House and Senate, party activists should...
  • Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears

    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...

    Last Monday began the PBS Series, "WE SHALL REMAIN" with their first Episode "After The Mayflower". The ones that will get my attention begin next week, Monday April 20th, 2009, and especially the April 27th "Trail of Tears" episode which will feature "The Ridge", the Cherokee leader and his clan who I wrote about in "Jesus Wept" An American Story. It will be VERY interesting to see how PBS deals with this situation or if they will be overtaken with the usual political correctness and historical rumor. My story is taken from documented records as well as family letters saved...

    A lone Cherokee Indian walked the barren earth where bulldozers had cleared the way for construction of a monument to the people who were at the Blythe Ferry staging area prior to the Trail of Tears in 1838. Alva Crow of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee from Cherokee, N. C., arrived at Blythe Ferry Landing, west of Georgetown, two hours early. It was a difficult journey for Crow, who is undergoing chemotherapy. “I am blessing the people who were here that made the removal on the Trail of Tears is here,” he said. “The people who passed away is...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Ex-Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein (news - web sites), charged with crimes against humanity, could go to trial before the Iraqi Special Tribunal (IST) as early as next month, Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi says in an interview to be aired on Sunday. "Roughly, I think October," Allawi said in the ABC interview, a transcript of which was given to AFP. He went on to say that Saddam supporters similarly charged would also be on trial when the IST convenes. "Maybe he will appear in November or December, but definitely in October the whole issue will start," he...
