Cherokee Princess Fauxcohantas

Posted on | April 19, 2014 | 43 Comments

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:

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:

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.

    “A Cherokee Can’t Be Found, Because A Cherokee Isn’t There”

    “If you saw them, sir, they weren’t Cherokee. — Oh, wait, wrong tribe.” S*** “John Wayne Never Said”.

    And yes, this will get me in dutch with my Delaware/Cherokee fee-yancy, but then she laughs in all the wrong places at “They Died With Their Boots On” anyway….

    When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.

    Your links prove there was enough to this that Warren can’t be branded an out and out liar.

    The nephew’s 2002 posting proves there was family lore consistent with Warren’s story.

    My grandparents eloped. They took the train from Detroit to Indiana. My grandmother’s Uncle was a conductor on that train, and may well have attended the wedding by an Indiana justice of peace. Did they elope because one was Catholic and the other Protestant? Or just to spare their parents, two single mothers, the expense of a wedding? That’s how things were done in those days.

    As for the census forms listing Warren’s ancestors as white, I’d be curious how Will Rogers family was listed on those same census forms.

    Let’s posit Warren did believe she had a few drops of Native American blood. The real question is why she thought that entitled her to affirmative action status.

    Who are we to question how she identifies? If a private in the Army can make the New York Times bow to his will on what you call her, then surely an accomplished academician and Senator can feel as Cherokee as she likes.

    Lost in all this is Warren received more tha $2 million dollars of US and state taxpayer dollars set aside to employ genuine Native Americans. Such misrepresentation is a felony, and Elizabeth Warren perpetrated such felonies over the course of her career. Warren is the Bernie Madoff of Native American Pigford scams. The first thing she must do is repay all the money, and then surrender to the US Marshals (her crimes took place in more than one state) for trial. Let the healing from Democratic exploitation of Native American Women begin.

    You guys are such hyper-partisan schmucks. By smearing Elizabeth Warren you’re helping Jamie Dimon, Lloyd Blankfein, and every other shitbag, sociopath, predator, finance capitalist in the word that sent us off into this dark time we’re now all living through. She is one of the few people in Washington who has the guts to stand up to Wall Street parasites, and you’re throwing a fit because she claimed she was Native American to make it easier to get into Harvard? Some perspective, and context please! If she can knee cap the banks permanently by helping to break them up and reinstate Glass Steigel, I don’t care if she fudged a college transcript while she was still in her 20’s.

    It isn’t about blood or biochemistry or heritage. It’s about what you THINK you are.

    If you identify as a female despite the fact you were born a male, you are a female.

    If you yearn to be a Native American, and take advantage of the benefits you perceive you can get from being one, you are a Native American. There’s a bit of victimhood in that identy that is also appealing.

    Ward Churchill took advantage of his fake Indian status for many years, too, even copied some Native American artists and billed himself as an artist. I wonder how many other fake Indians are out there that we’ve never heard of…

    Warren not only lied, she used the lie to be listed as a “minority law professor” in several directories commonly used to recruit the same. Upon her hire at Harvard, she was listed as among the “women of color” on their faculty. There is no question she used her lies to get her position.

    But to the hard core Left, lying not only isn’t bad, it’s an approved tactic, even preferred where the truth might reveal too much of their real plans. They never hold a lie against a leftist politician.

    And the rest of the Democratic electorate, including those “swing voters” who consider voting for Democrats, are too stupid to know they are being lied to and/or too distracted to care as long as their government gravy keeps flowing to the trough.

    Democrats don’t get into trouble by lying. It’s when they screw up and tell the truth that things fall apart for them.

    She was a paid employee of those same Wall Street schmucks prior to entering Congress, or didn’t you read her bio? Most her staff comes from Wall Street and those lobbyists that visit her office are her friends from Wall Street, and usually the family members of her staff. She’s not standing up to Wall Street, she’s attacking the competition of her financiers.

    If I were running the GOP, and I were clever (a lot to ask, I know), I would pay for a genetic testing kit to be sent to Fauxcahontas’ door, with a TV news crew in tow. Here’s your chance : put up or shut up. If she refuses, plaster the refusal in every commercial : Do YOU want someone who can’t face reality as a President? Do you want someone THIS delusional as President?

    I would also pay genetic and genealogical experts to appear at EVERY stop of her book tour until she either takes the test, or admits the truth. Just to put the cherry on top, I would also pay for members of the Cherokee Tribe to follow her on her book tour, too.
