  • Elizabeth Warren's hometown paper 'skeptical' of 2020 run: She 'missed her moment in 2016'

    CNN ^ | 12/06/18 | Kate Sullivan
    (CNN) The Boston Globe published a searing editorial Thursday pouring cold water on the prospects of a presidential run for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2020, a stark contrast to the paper's call for her to seek the White House three years ago. "While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure," the Globe editorial reads. "A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump." The Globe, based in the state Warren represents, writes: "Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason...
  • Elizabeth Warren Stands by DNA Test. But Around Her, Worries Abound.

    New York Times ^ | December 6, 2018 | Astead W. Herndon
    WASHINGTON — The plan was straightforward: After years of being challenged by President Trump and others about a decades-old claim of Native American ancestry, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts would take a DNA test to prove her stated family origins in the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. But nearly two months after Ms. Warren released the test results and drew hostile reactions from prominent tribal leaders, the lingering cloud over her likely presidential campaign has only darkened. Conservatives have continued to ridicule her. More worrisome to supporters of Ms. Warren’s presidential ambitions, she has yet to allay criticism from grass-roots progressive...
  • Elizabeth Warren Reacts to Genetic Test Mockery with Odd Tweetstorm, Media Mum

    Just plain nuts! That is the conclusion that many mental health professionals might come to after observing the absolutely bizarre tweetstorm Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren posted on Twitter on Monday in the wake of the release of her genetic test results which "suggests" that she might possibly be 1/1024th South American. Perhaps instigated by the backfire mockery resulting from her test by President Donald Trump in particular and the public in general, Warren posted a tweetstorm of 28 tweets on October 15 from 5:59 P.M. until 7:17 P.M.. That works out to more than one tweet every 3 minutes during a 78 minute...

    ABC News ^ | October 18, 2018 | Chris Francescani
    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...

    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,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—After receiving confirmation that she was at least 1/1024th Native American, Elizabeth Warren has embraced her fractional identity. Having gotten an authentic Native American outfit from a costume shop and armed herself with weapons she read on Wikipedia that a Native American might use -- such as the tomahawk -- Warren stood before a buffalo exhibit in the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian to give a speech to the assembled press. "You pale faces have taken my land, and have angered the Great Spirit!" Warren announced as she glanced down at her book of Native American...

    A descendant of Pocahontas, the 17th-century Powhatan princess, said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) needs to apologize for claiming to be Native American for political gain. Appearing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Debbie White Dove Porreco said she was glad the Massachusetts Democrat finally took the DNA test, which she urged her to do back in May. "It did prove that she wasn't the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long," Porreco said on the program Tuesday. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof -- and then [is] using it for...

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

    She took the DNA test President Donald Trump urged, and he mocked her for it. Now Sen. Elizabeth Warren is taking a page from Trump's playbook, hitting back in personal terms and calling him "creepy" on Twitter. When it comes to challenging the man who redefined the rules of American political combat, the Massachusetts Democrat, who's weighing a 2020 presidential run, is often doing it Trump's way. And like Trump, she's getting blowback: Jokes. Objections. And grumblings from her own political party about timing, with midterm elections three weeks away.

Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself.

    A university professor chided Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., for taking a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage, saying her action ultimately does more harm to Native Americans. Kim TallBear, part of the native studies faculty at the University of Alberta, said Monday that Warren taking a DNA test is “yet another strike — even if unintended — against tribal sovereignty.” In a statement, TallBear said Warren has refused to meet with Cherokee Nation community members who have challenged her ancestry claims.

    Curious as to how clueless is the New York Times? Mara Gay—a member of the Grey Lady's editorial board—claimed on Ari Melbers's MSNBC show today that President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America."Anxieties about who is white in America? What meaningless identity-politics gobbledygook! No, Ms. Gay. Trump's point is that Warren cheated. That she made her bogus claim of Native American-hood in order to get ahead in academia.

    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...

    SNIP The scientists also have been developing software that learns to recognize the origins of the short segments of DNA that make up our genomes. Recently they used their program to calculate what percentage of each subject’s genomes was inherited from European, African or Native American forebears. This year we saw that we were in a great position to do the analysis,” said Joanna L. Mountain, senior director of research at 23andMe. On average, the scientists found, people who identified as African-American had genes that were only 73.2 percent African. European genes accounted for 24 percent of their DNA, while...

One whole Native American. Warren is gearing up for what appears to be a 2020 presidential run. Ahead of such a move, she has decided to settle the question of her ancestry once and for all. Despite her claims, however, I don’t think it’s actually the answer she really wanted. Via the Boston Globe: Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides “strong evidence’’ she...
