Analysis: Elizabeth Warren´s Latest
´Native American´ Defense is a
Cringe-worthy Embarrassment

Townhall, by Guy Benson

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/16/2018 8:42:10 AM

Katie mentioned this story earlier -- but having written about Sen. Warren´s stolen privilege in my book, I wanted to take a crack at this new information, too. In case you missed it, Warren has released a new "fact" sheet about her supposed Native American heritage, along with an online video: (Tweet) Conspicuously absent from this mini-film? Any actual Native Americans. The clip does, however, show (a) various members of her family confirming that there was "Indian" folklore in their history, b) various faculty and officials from law schools where she taught praising her skill and denying any knowledge of her claimed ethnicity

I´m pretty certain she hasn’t shared 1/1000 of the royalty money with her so-called relatives from her Pow Wow Chow book, let alone the 1/32 she was promoting 30 years ago. The real point is that it´s just pathetic that she used her heritage, whatever it is, to get ahead. If I tried that it would be called “privilege”.

Guy Benson does a great job at summarizing her duplicitous history.

I´m surprised he didn´t mention her contribution to that culinary best-seller the "Pow Wow Chow" cookbook.

Take that and add it to her "high-cheekbones" explanation and the Left would normally find a racist that would be banned from TV if her name was Roseanne.

No doubt now that Warren is a fake Indian who got elected as a US Senator in very liberal Massachusetts. It is reminiscent of Blumenthal getting elected as a US Senator in very liberal Connecticut after he was outed as a fake Vietnam veteran. So you have to figure that making such false claims is OK with the liberal and socialist Democrats for political gain, as their political philosophy is that the end always justifies the means that is used to push forward the liberal and socialist political agenda.

In Warren’s case it appears that she intends to run for the Democrat Presidential nomination in 2020. No doubt when that time comes Warran will attempt to fool most of the Democrat moron base by insinuating that her falsely claiming to be an Native American (Indian) is old news as she attempts to minimize her untruthfulness.

Guy Benson needs to interview Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker.

I hear Rush say things that "aren´t just right" about the relocated civilized tribes and I wish it were cleared up.

The Cherokees has a 877 million dollar budget. The Chickasaws brought in 1.4 billion in gambling dollars. Oklahoma has now approved Ball and Dice. And, they own everything from a bank to a chocolate factory.

Embarrassed? Ashamed? Those are things demoncrats are incapable of. Their depth of concern for human suffering and knowledge of everyone´s problems protect them from things like shame, embarrassment, immodesty, arrogance and racism. Stoops, oops, I mean demoncrats like Warren, Caramel Harris, Spartacus, Plugs-Biden, Obozo-the-Bozo, Piglosi, etc. can do no wrong (see MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYTimes, WaPo, Reuters, AssPress...).

I watched video clips of her with her parents or someone looking at a family album of old photos. I don´t know the purpose of that except to push the ´high cheekbones´ theory and Indian ancestry. Maybe Warren would do herself a favor to laugh this off and shut up. Bad thing is she sent up ´smoke signals´ (tweets) Monday night attacking President Trump. The old squaw is un-hinged now. She has the long skinny, flailing arms and open screaming mouth I would say the DNA is 99.89% sure she´s Orangutan not of Indian ancestry.
I don´t know which female is more un-hinged Warren or Clinton you decide.

The only thing funnier was the DNA testing that put pay to Oprah´s claim of being a Zulu Princess. First she tells a crowd in South Africa, "I went in search of my roots and had my DNA tested, and I am a Zulu."

Ancestry.com, which did the test, found her DNA had three exact matches — with the Kpelle people, who lived in western Africa in what’s now Liberia; the Bamileke people in Cameroon; and a Bantu-speaking tribe in Zambia.

Take off the tiara, poseur!

Great article. I liked the info from Dr. Gavin Clarkson who said "he "personally invited" her three times to visit with Harvard´s Native American Law Student Association (NALSA)" and despite her saying she wanted to meet others "like her" she never accepted the invitation. He also clearly says she self identified as Native American.

Here´s the probable truth, she lied to get job opportunities. In the academic world, they probably don´t care. They needed minority hires and she fit the bill. It was a win-win and everyone was OK with the lie.

Now she is in politics and the lie does matter, especially since Trump called her on it. There is no good way to get out from under it, especially since the tribes reject her claims.

Leftists don´t care about the bad characteristics of their reps. BJ Clintoon is sexual abuse and he´s OK. So Warren is a fake Indian, they don´t care. Warren is safe in Leftist Massachusetts.

But a national election, that´s a different story and Pocahontas has no way to run from this. A nasty, lying Leftist smells a lot like Hillary lite. I´m not sure even the dems will want round 3 of a "Clintoon" campaign, even if it´s by proxy.

DNA wasn´t believed in the OJ Simpson case, and that was current generation stuff, not separated by great-great-great-great grandmother hoopla.

On the 25th anniversary of the Northridge earthquake, the second temblor in two days has woken up the Bay Area, with the last seismic event a magnitude 3.5 centered in the Oakland-Berkeley Hills.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Gabbard’s father, Mike, was an anti-LGBT activist in Hawaii and ran a political action group that promoted traditional marriage. Rep. Gabbard is even quoted in one of the press releases.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
