Elizabeth Warren needs to stop the
drip-drip-drip of fresh revelations

Boston Globe, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/9/2019 5:15:32 AM

When it comes to handling the controversy over her past claims to Native American identity, Elizabeth Warren can’t seem to win. Someone, somewhere is going to keep attacking the Massachusetts senator no matter her response. This week’s latest development: A Washington Post story about Warren having listed herself — in her own handwriting — as an “American Indian” on a registration card with the Texas bar in 1986. Warren grew up believing she was part Cherokee. But answering the question the way she did was a mistake, even by the standards of 1986. Warren’s never been a member of any tribe.

If it all came out, she would leave the Senate in shame and not be allowed back in the Ivies.

Why give Warren the benefit of any doubt as the Globe does throughout this article? I repeatedly read in the MSM that only Warren’s critics believe she lied to gain advantage. Only her critics? What is the matter with her supporters? Without any tribal past, preferably spent on a reservation, what difference does it make what her great granfather’s ethnicity was? She didn’t live an Indian life, she went to white schools, lived in white neighborhoods, went to white churches, etc. and had no objective reason to fill the forms out the way she did. But she did know, in 1986, that there was no way anyone could prove she was lying and that she would achieve access to positions normally far out of her reach by misrepresenting her heritage.

It was not a mistake. It was a lie.

She knows it. We know it. Her supporters know it. The question is whether lies matter to liberals. The answer since the Clinton administration is they don´t.

But race does matter to them. In fact, race matters more than most things--the Constitution, freedom of speech, equality before the law. Race matters so much to the Left that they want everybody in the country to have one--to be identified by it, forced to declare it on legally-required documents, and compelled to conform to it. Racial categorizations provide a raison d´etre for the ongoing intrusion of liberalism into every aspect of our daily lives and a set of pre-defined political constituencies that can be polarized against one another to elect the Left and enact its policy agenda.

The Left doesn´t care that Elizabeth Warren lied; they only care that they she lied about race.

Which brings us to the real questions: Does race matter more than everything? Does it matter more than what the Left calls gender? I suspect it doesn´t.

For the Left, it´s all a numbers game: Divide and elect. There aren´t that many American Indians, and they don´t have the political throw weight of other minorities. There are a lot more women, and they can be polarized and manipulated to vote for another woman.

And, despite the Left´s rhetoric, not all races are created politically equal. If Elizabeth Warren had claimed to be Black, this would be all over. Blacks are an essential voting bloc in the Left´s plan to take over the country. Indians aren´t.

What´s worse? Dressing up as another race for Halloween, or falsely claiming racial privileges you´re not entitled to on a legally-required, government-mandated form? The answer from the Left is: it depends on the race.

With them, it always does.

My seven siblings and I grew up with our father telling us we were part "Indian" (proper to say that in the 50´s). Family lore said some of his hillbilly relatives from rural Massachusetts were American Indians. Our mother always insisted it was a joke but we never knew. Ancestry DNA as well as 23 & Me showed us with much higher % than Grannie Warren but here´s the difference. None of the eight of us ever used it to get a better job or promotion or to get into a better school. When the Affirmative Action movement I worked in a major corporation and had I identified, like Warrren, as Native American I would have got promoted years earlier and would have gone higher. Difference is we didn´t because it would not have been right. Warren is not just a fraud but she cheated other people out of positions by using her false identity. It tells a great deal about her character - and it´s not very appealing. Bottom line, "family lore" is not a valid excuse for being a liar, cheat, and thief.

The Globe could find no proof? Of course not!
There are specific procedures on job applications, and one´s ethnicity may not appear on the application. That would be a violation of federal regulations.
Instead, a second form is used, where the applicant self identifies ethnicity/race/sex.
That second form is aggregated with all other applicant information, and is reported to the EEOC annually, known as EEO-1. That form, in turn, has a complex analysis of equal opportunity hiring, including goals for future hiring.
Warren, a lawyer, (be it from a third rate law school) would know the procedures, and she gamed the system over a fairly long period of time.
She also co-wrote a book on bankruptcy, which was badly researched and badly skewed, using bankruptcy statistics to justify national health care insurance. She has been criticized in legal circles for the bad research.
I don´t see how a sincere apology would make a dime´s worth of difference for Warren and her reputation, any more than it should for Ward Churchill - remember him?
The Globe should be ashamed of itself for this half azzed article.

You guys are missing something really important.
FTA: If there are other times she listed herself as a Native American, she should disclose them...
She did NOT identify herself as a Native American. Instead she wrote the words American Indian---a term which (even in 1986) was considered to be inaccurate, disrespectful, culturally offensive, and extremely politically incorrect. The late 80s were times of enlightenment about racial sensitivities. Negroes were to be called African Americans and American Indians were to be called Native Americans.
Warren´s lack of respect for her heritage clearly doesn´t show any degree of pride or empathy for her own people. Since that aspect is missing, it certainly appears she was selfishly gaming the system to take personal advantage of Affirmative Action.

The Boston Globe is the red-headed stepchild of the NY Times, so read with care. They believe themselves.

So when they proclaim their "extensive" investigation "found no evidence" Pocahontas didn´t use her self-identifying lie to advance her career, the Globe is likely telling the truth. Their crack team was led by Sgt. Schultz ("I see nothing!"), I suspect.

More important is the obvious truth everyone here sees, that if Warren lays everything on the table, she´s done, even in the cloudy eyes of such as the Globe.

When the Globe´s editorial includes words like these, President Trump [...] gleefully taunts her in racist language, and leads directly to a mention of those white voters who resent affirmative action, consider it a reminder that nothing will stop their compulsive drive to cover for progressive ideologues and bury conservatives.

Nothing. And least of all reason, ethics or professional standards.

Yeah, and Hillary got a free pass from the FBI for numerous crimes. Is the Globe so stupid to belief the garbage they peddle or do they think we are?

Warren appropriated a Native American heritage to further her career and status. She lied. She is a shameful person. The reason things keep drip-drip-dripping is because there is NO WAY to fix an essential character failing like this.

If the Globe had any credibility they would be encouraging her to step aside. Instead, they are willing to foist a bad candidate on the electorate. Warren and the Globe are both despicable losers.

Here is their top five, descending: Warren, Harris, Biden, Booker. Warren tops the list. They have to try and patch her up. Warren is their best shot.

I agree with #13. Many of us heard family lore about Indian connections. My maternal great-grandfather was understood to have been kidnapped and then raised by Comanches to adulthood.

Well, no. When I began conducting genealogy research, I found he was born in Scotland and came to the US through Canada as a 37 year old man.

Who knows where these stories begin. But better check it out before you use it for social, political or scholastic gain, Senator Warren.

I too "have ancestry" going back, gosh, maybe to Adam and Eve.

That´s not a slip by the Globe, though. The REASON for that particularly stupid locution is that they can NOT say she has Native American ancestry. The test couldn´t specify.

You have a keen eye, #29, in this case spotting further proof that the Globe will do whatever it has to—here crank out stupid English—to protect their liberal darling.

Eventually they will declare her cleansed and ready for the Oval Office. Count on it.

9/11 compensation fund to slash

A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

Independent Investigation Shows Covington Boys

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington. These are the rulers and the palace guards, the gatekeepers and peddlers of influence. In another age, another place,

FEC Still Refuses To Investigate Alleged $84
Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering
The Federalist, by Margot Cleveland    Original Article

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Andrew McCabe on Friday denied that he knew of an effort to oust President Trump using the 25th Amendment, saying he never had “any extended discussions” about the matter and was unaware of such talks. “At no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any extended discussions about the use of the 25th Amendment, nor is he aware of any such discussions,” his spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, said in a statement on Twitter, adding that his remarks about the issue were taken out of context. She said McCabe “was present and participated in a discussion that included a comment by Deputy Attorney
