Descendant of Pocahontas Has Harsh Words for Liz Warren

There are two ways in which the liberal left are weaponing diversity in 2018, and Elizabeth Warren is guilty of both of them.

You see, the left not only tells us that we should treat people “equally”, but they expect those of us with even the slightest bit of interesting ethnic history to be exalted in return for the oppressions of the past.  (Having their cake and eating it too, in a nutshell).

For the democrats, their bread and butter lies within the realm of diversity – a phrase that they have clung to as if their very political lives depended on it.  But, in all honesty, what is diversity other than a re-engineering of conservative concepts found within the Constitution itself?

“All men are created equal” – and by “men”, they meant everybody.

So why even jump on the “diversity” bandwagon when you can jump on the “Constitutional equality” bandwagon?  Because the left is a sucker for a semantic skirmish.  They think that by galvanizing their voters under the banner of “diversity”, that they are somehow proffering a new and progressive way of looking at America.  Unfortunately for their marketing department, they are simply repackaging the patriotic realities we’ve inherited from our founders.

This is where Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage becomes so troubling.

Not only has Warren consistently insinuated that her family were victims of discrimination on account of that heritage, but she has also decried the President as a racist for refuting her claims.  When DNA test results showed only minuscule genetic information indicating the possibility of Native American precursors in her genome, the egg on Warren’s face became uncomfortably apparent.

Now, an avowed descendant of famous Native American Pocahontas is taking Warren to the metaphorical woodshed over the inexcusable guilt-tripping perpetrated by the democratic senator.

Pocahontas descendant Debbie White Dove Porreco has called on Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren to apologize for using claims of Native American heritage to advance her political career.

Porreco, who claims to be able to trace her lineage to historical figure Pocahontas, told Fox News that she believes her fellow Native Americans feel “betrayed” by Warren’s use of their heritage and culture as a platform for her political ambitions. “I think they feel betrayed, they feel disappointed, and at this point she needs to come back and apologize to everybody for what she’s done,” she said.

Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said Warren’s DNA test “dishonors legitimate tribal governments and citizens, whose ancestors are well documented, and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

Warren’s DNA test was, by nature, unable to back up her claims of Cherokee heritage.

Detecting DNA for Native Americans is particularly tricky because there is an absence of Native American DNA available for comparison. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases.

“The tribes have felt they have been exploited,” explained Lawrence Brody, a senior investigator with the Medical Genomics and Metabolic Genetics Branch at the National Institutes of Health. “The amount of genetic data that is available from Native Americans is sparse.”

To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American. That’s because scientists believe that the groups Americans refer to as Native American came to this land via the Bering Strait about 12,000 years ago and settled in what’s now America but also migrated further south. His report explained that the use of reference populations whose genetic material has been fully sequenced was designed “for maximal accuracy.”

This may not bode well for Warren as she considers the possibility of a presidential run in 2020.

Palestinian Terrorists Blow Up Israeli Teen, & Rashida Tlaib Has the Nerve to Blame ISRAEL

She’s just unreal.

Can the Democrats of Michigan truly feel good about themselves knowing they put an openly anti-Semitic woman in Congress? Maddening. Check out Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib’s tweet on Israel upon learning Palestinian terrorists literally blew up an Israeli teenager… From Red State: You may have heard the recent news of a 17 year old Israeli girl being killed by a bomb that was planted by Palestinian terrorists. Her father and brother were also seriously wounded in the attack. This all occurred while they simply out enjoying a family swim. Worse, the bomb had apparently been planted months ago and the terrorists were waiting on the “right” victim to denote it on. That turned out to be a teenage girl because these are the kinds of monsters the Israelis have to deal with on a daily basis. Enter Tlaib: This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family. More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all. Extremism that puts innocent lives at risk moves us no closer to peace. https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1165067456676847616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1165067456676847616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbonchie%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Fpalestinian-terrorists-kill-israeli-child-rep.-rashida-tlaib-blames-jews The first thing to note is that she’s retweeting a rabidly anti-Semitic organization that continually blames Israel for all the world’s ills while never standing against Palestinian terrorism. That would be bad enough, but Tlaib goes further. She gives her own awful commentary blaming the “occupation” and the idea that if only Israel gave into the Palestinians, they’d all live in peace and harmony. You see, it’s not the fault of the Palestinian terrorists who killed this girl. It’s Israel’s fault for somehow provoking them by not letting their country be overrun with an Islamism that wants to destroy it. Reactions: This is vile! Have you no shame? How dare you blame the murder of…

AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

Come on, man!

Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s about. Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial. New Yorkers and Californians and people from a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter. Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see the system remain in place. And yet, here we are. Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez… Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans. I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164987742842830848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1164987742842830848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Focasio-cortez-electoral-college-is-affirmative-action-for-rural-americans%2F 2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS. a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164988657209507845 3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural. But very importantly… https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164989849226506240 4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do…
