Senate Confirms Jeff Sessions 52-47, and Also Condemns Fake ‘Cherokee’ Woman

The confirmation of former Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions was also the launch of Elizabeth Warren’s 2016 presidential campaign:

The Senate voted Wednesday night to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as attorney general, capping a vicious debate that left Democrats and Republicans alike seething at times.
No Republicans went against Sessions in the 52-47 vote. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) was the only Democrat to back Sessions.
While Republicans broke out into applause after the vote closed, Democrats largely stood silently. A handful of Democratic senators — including Manchin, Sen. Joe Donnelly (W.Va.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) — went over and shook Sessions’s hand after the vote. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), who didn’t support Sessions, hugged him on the Senate floor.
The fight over Sessions escalated this week, when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) read a letter that Coretta Scott King had written in 1986 that accused Sessions, a U.S. attorney at the time, of using the power of his office to prevent blacks from voting.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) objected to Warren’s speech, saying she had impugned another member of the Senate. In a 49-43 vote, the Senate agreed, preventing Warren from speaking on the Senate floor on Wednesday.
Democrats accused McConnell of silencing a woman on the floor, and Warren went on a media blitz against the Republican senators and Sessions.

The phony smear against Sessions was perpetrated by the most phony member of the Senate, who falsely claimed Cherokee ancestry:

Warren has only claimed to be 1/32 Native American — which has been debunked — and even if she actually was, Warren does not have any ancestors listed on Cherokee tribe rolls that are necessary to become an official member of Cherokee Nation.

To quote the President of the United States: “She’s got about as much Indian blood as I have. Her whole life was based on a fraud. She got into Harvard and all that because she said she was a minority.”

Professor William Jacobson has thoroughly exposed Warren, whose tribal name, Fauxcahontas, means, “Lying white woman.” She tried to “prove” her non-existent Cherokee ancestry by contributing two “family” recipes for crab dishes to a 1984 cookbook called Pow Wow Chow but (a) crabs are not part of traditional Cherokee tribal cuisine, and (b) Warren’s recipes were plagiarized from a 1979 New York Times article.
