In her new book, Elizabeth Warren blames the controversy over her fake Cherokee ancestry on “some blogger,” and since William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection was particularly merciless in exposing her lies, he’s giving credit where credit is due:
In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee. Read Elizabeth Warren Wiki, and these posts responding to the claims in her book:
- Twila Barnes, No Pity for Warren
- Michael Patrick Leahy, Elizabeth Warren Repeats Her False Claims of Native American Ancestry in New Book and Elizabeth Warren History Of ‘Minority Status’ Listings At Odds With New Book’s Claims
Warren will be launching a nationwide book tour. Someone who wants to meet Warren is Twila Barnes.
Barnes is the Cherokee Genealogist whose groundbreaking genealogical research exposed the falsehood to Warren’s claims. Barnes and her team of Cherokee genealogists traced Warren’s family lines back to the early 1800s and documented that Warren’s family not only was not Cherokee or other Native American, but also that they never lived as such:
- Elizabeth Warren’s Ancestry Part 1
- Elizabeth Warren’s Ancestry Part 2
- Elizabeth Warren’s Ancestry, Part 3
- A Cherokee Can’t Be Found, Because A Cherokee Isn’t There
- Elizabeth Warren, Who Do You Think You Are?
Barnes also debunked much of the “family lore” used by Warren to justify claiming Native American status. One of my favorites was Barnes’ discovery that Warren’s maternal great grandfather, on the supposedly Cherokee bloodline, was featured in the local newspaper in 1906 as being white and having shot an Indian. And also Barnes’ discovery that Warren’s parents’ wedding was joyously announced in the local newspaper, which would contradict Warren’s claim that her parents had to elope because her father’s family would not tolerate their son marrying an Indian.
See, here’s the thing: With a huge national fundraising effort, Warren could get herself elected to the Senate in Massachusetts in 2012, but her larger ambitions — her admirers want her to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination in 2016 — require that this controversy disappear. It won’t disappear, because the facts are at odds with Warren’s version of the story.
The fact is that Elizabeth Warren has zero Native American ancestry. She lied about her ancestry — and even invented stories about her parents’ marriage — in order to justify “checking the box” on forms to qualify for affirmative action consideration.
Elizabeth Warren is a liar and a Democrat, but I repeat myself.
