Elizabeth Warren refuses DNA test
to prove Native American heritage

New York Post, by Marisa Schultz

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 3/11/2018 1:28:16 PM

Washington – Sen. Elizabeth Warren batted down calls for her to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage in an interview that aired Sunday. “I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said of her ancestry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The Massachusetts Democrat has been under increased pressure to provide evidence of ?her ?Native American roots, with President Trump repeatedly mocking her as “Pocahontas” as recently as Saturday. An editorial this month in Massachusetts’s Berkshire Eagle urged Warren to buy a DNA test for $99 to resolve the

Warren used her bogus claim to be an American Indian to steal a Harvard professorship away from any real American American who might have applied for the set-aside. But she represents the downtrodden, especially downtrodden Native Americans. Massachusetts proud, baby; senator for life, just like Captain Oldsmobile.

She says she´s never received anything for her "heritage." There´s the "listing" of herself as Native American at Harvard and U of PA - who knows what breaks she may have received at those institutions. But, in the matter of politics, listing herself as Native American is an attempt at reaping whatever cache from this purported heritage that she can. She mentions wanting to hold onto the "folklore" of her family - great hold onto it and stop spreading it all over the public. “It’s a part of me and nobody’s going to take that part of me away.” Again, keep it. Stop trying to hand it to me.

Releasing the results of a test would stop all those pundits in their tracks. If, if it would test positive. She knows, she lied, she got caught. If it was true she would probably take out an ad in the NYT and I am sure Drudge would headline it. But nooooo because it ain´t so.

Be thankful that, same as after Teddy Kennedy´s wrong turn into Poucha Pond, Fauxcahontas will not ever be president because that question has no good honest answer. She´s a fake Indian. And her cheekbones aren´t especially high. Lieawatha cheated her way onto the Harvard faculty.

Want to see some high cheekbones? Look at Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. Now them´s some high cheekbones. But he´s an Englishman.

Every time she eats in a restaurant or gives a speech, she leaves a DNA sample on the glass. It would be simple for someone to scoop up the glass and have it tested.
Separate from that, I recall reading that her parents did not elope. Someone should be able to track that down. Where were they married? Who performed the ceremony? (In the olden days, eloping was not a big deal - it was a way for the groom to finally get the bride into bed. My sister in law, age 78, did that at age 20.)
I have been stationed with guys from Oklahoma, and it seemed like everyone of them claimed indian heritage. That gives me additional doubt about the elopement being necessary.
Finally, and never again, I will tell the Harvard Law story.
In the late 1980s, Harvard Law students and faculty, staged protests against Harvard Law, demanding that Harvard create a position for a black, full professor, tenured.
So Harvard Law, after the protests, led by Professor Ogletree (who went on strike over the issue) and students such as Michelle Robinson, created a minority position (couldn´t call it a black position - that might have violated civil rights law) and Warren´s husband, a Harvard Law faculty member, submitted his wife´s name as a minority - native american - and she was hired, and Harvard reported her hiring as a native american.
Professor Ogletree went back to work at Harvard, and Michelle Robinson went on to become First Linebacker. No black was hired for the position, so somewhere, a black lawyer got scalped by Warren.

#3 and others are correct. She had the test done and it came back negative for any Cherokee or other Indian heritage. If it had come back positive, the media would have blared it out for weeks.

I am also thinking that she ´embellished´ the folklore about persecution. Leftists like to lie about bigotry and prejudice. That´s how they want the world to be like so they can pose as champions of social justice.

It´s also why 90% of the hate crime attacks are false flags. Seems like there´s not enough racism left now to suit them.

She repeated the same campfire tale on Fox News Sunday. Grandmother and grandfather eloped because grandmother was part Indian, and Grandfather´s family objected to the marriage.

She spins a yarn about her parents with tidbits like her mother was beautiful, and played the piano, designed to soften hearts. But she never offers any proof of her mythical claims.

The whole interview was a study on obfuscation. When faced with irrefutable facts about PDT´s accomplishments she manages to spin them into mythical attacks aon the middle class.

She´s a nasty, sinister woman.

I think those "tests" are a bit of reading tea leaves when it comes to ethnic origins (fine for finding parentage, criminals etc.). We don´t yet know enough except to make broad generalizations. They should be marked "For entertainment purposes only"

Besides, I have read that those $100-$250 tests do not pick up Amerind ancestry.

Her Native American claims are phony. She knows it. The Native Americans know it. America knows it. So why is she afraid to accept the truth? Many people have had family myths and legends proven false by proper genealogy and DNA testing. There is no shame in that. But she doesn´t want to have her use of her supposed Native American blood examined closely. And if she really is Native American, then why isn´t she advocating actively for that group of the population? Fighting for their rights and needs? She´s a disgrace.

The long knives (and brass knuckles) are clearly out for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

His efforts in rolling back job-killing regulations have been a prime force in driving the Trump economy and the media and Democrats can’t stand it.

Thirty-one “Dreamers” had rape charges on their records, nearly 500 had been accused of sex crimes, and more than 2,000 had been arrested for drunken driving — yet were approved for DACA status. All told, 53,000 people who have been approved for DACA — 7 percent of the total — had a criminal record when the government granted them status.

Mountain View, Calif. — At a divisive time for U.S. immigration policies, a California school board has decided to name a new elementary school after an award-winning journalist who disclosed in 2011 that he had been living in the U.S. illegally. The Mountain View Whisman School District board voted Thursday to name the as-yet-unopened school after Jose Antonio Vargas, bypassing Steve Jobs and other technology giants with ties to the San Francisco Bay Area’s high-tech Silicon Valley. “We wanted to pick someone who embodied the values of what you can do with an education, as Jose does

Milwaukee — A Wisconsin woman accused of trying to plan terrorist attacks on social media leads a lonely life and sought companionship online, but she never posed a real threat, her attorney told a judge Friday. But federal magistrate Judge Nancy Joseph said the allegations against 45-year-old Waheba Issa Dais were concerning enough that she must be held without bond pending her trial. Prosecutors allege the mother of seven tried to recruit people to carry out attacks for the Islamic State, and provided them with information on how to make explosives and poisons. The FBI said its investigation found that Dais used

Barcelona, Spain — Spain´s maritime rescue service says it has saved 933 people and recovered four bodies from dozens of migrant boats attempting the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea over the past two days. The service said Saturday that it pulled the migrants from a total of 68 different smuggling boats that its rescue craft intercepted throughout Friday and Saturday morning after they departed from African shores. The spike in arrivals comes as Spain prepares to receive another 630 migrants after Italy and Malta refused to let the aid boat Aquarius land in their ports last Saturday. The Aquarius and two

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

Most of what happens inside Apple Park, the iPhone company´s stunning new headquarters, is top secret. But Apple CEO Tim Cook recently disclosed one new detail about the work environment: Everyone gets a standing desk. "We have given all of our employees, 100%, standing desks. If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it´s much better for your lifestyle," Cook said in a recent interview with The Carlyle Group´s David Rubenstein published on Wednesday. He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him — just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. Cook has previously cited

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Bill Maher suggested there should be a movement for people who have been victims of police brutality after a discussion on his show about police brutality. During a segment on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher called out abusive police officers and the people who protect him on Friday. “We need to stop saying most cops are good like we know that to be true,” Maher said. “I hope it’s true, but I need some evidence, unlike cops.” The HBO show host continued and said the violence exposed by the people who post the videos on social media is a problem. He questioned the kindness of police and questioned why there are

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed. Anti-gay protesters would line the streets, dressed in black and holding aggressive, defamatory signs, said Robert Franklin, who was also

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
