Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren Awkwardly Celebrates Indigenous People’s Day on Twitter

Published

Elizabeth Warren

On Monday, Americans were given a choice between celebrating the traditional Columbus Day, which honors the Italian sailor credited with first discovering the Americas, and Indigenous People’s Day, the option available for anyone who thinks that the discovery of the Americas was a really bad thing and that we should instead honor the memory of the indigenous people who chose to conquer other people groups on their own continent, thank you very much.

Enter Elizabeth Warren, who has received distinct criticism for claiming to be a Native American during her time at Harvard and yet has little evidence beyond her “high cheekbones” and contribution to a cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow”.

As a liberal, she was certainly obligated to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, but as someone who has been pretending to have Native American heritage for decades, she had to tread lightly.

She opted to mention Indigenous People’s Day, but avoid any mention of her own supposed indigenous heritage, something which one may consider a bit conspicuous considering she’s never backed down from her unproven claims to Cherokee ancestry.

“Today we celebrate Native American communities, & the pride & resilience of people reclaiming their history & traditions. We honor the contributions that Native people make to a country that has taken so much & keeps asking for more,” she tweeted, along with the #IndigenousPeoplesDay hashtag.

She also went on to voice support for indigenous people in politics, again failing to mention herself.

You think this would be a good opportunity to say how proud she was to be a person of indigenous heritage in Congress, unless, of course, said heritage is impossible to prove.

According to Trump, who loves to mock Warren for her alleged ancestry, he’s more Native American than she is. And he’s not Native American at all.

“I have more Indian blood in me than Pocahontas (referencing Warren), & I have none. Sadly, I have none. But I have more than she does!” he told the crowd during a rally in Kansas City last week.

Chicago Police Cite NEW EVIDENCE, Release Nigerian Brothers In Jussie Smollett Case

A new twist!

This Jussie Smollett situation has been full of twists and turns.

Originally, the report was that the openly gay “Empire” actor was attacked by two men who yelled, “This is MAGA country.”

Also, Smollett allegedly told authorities that his attackers were white.

Not long after, Smollett’s neighbors doubted his story and ABC Chicago said Smollett may have staged the attack.

Now, late on Friday night, it is being learned that the arrested Nigerian brothers were released after being detained due to “new evidence.”

From AP News:

Chicago police say they have released two Nigerian brothers who had been arrested earlier in the week on suspicion of assaulting “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, saying that detectives have additional investigative work to complete.

The men were picked up by police Wednesday at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and their apartment was searched Thursday. They were questioned Friday but police were obliged to release them if they had not been charged within 48 hours.

On Smollett’s neighbors, via New York Post:

CHICAGO — Nearly two weeks after “Empire” star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects — and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical.

[…]

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

WATCH:

From ABC Chicago, who noted that Smollett staged the attack with the help of others because he was being written off the show.

From ABC 7:

Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of “Empire.”

[…]

The law enforcement official also told ABC News that the homes of the persons of interest were raided Wednesday night. Police removed shoes, electronic devices and other items they believe could help them they determine if the two people played any role in the assault from those homes.

It seems as though Jussie was doing whatever possible to stay relevant in an attempt to remain on the Fox hit series.

Here’s the interview Smollett conducted with Robin Roberts:

Stay tuned for more.

This story is far from being over just yet.

IT BEGINS: Dems Launch Investigation Hours After Trump Declares Border Emergency

Just the start.

Well, it finally happened. President Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border, just as he said he would.

Now, the House Judiciary Committee has decided to open an investigation into the legitimacy of the emergency.

Rest assured, though.

Trump was well within his right as president to make such a move.

From Washington Examiner:

The House Judiciary Committee will investigate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border, citing his statement Friday, “I didn’t need to do this, but I would rather do it much faster.”

Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and fellow Democrats have requested a hearing with Department of Justice officials and White House counsel, writing in a letter to the president, “We believe your declaration of an emergency shows a reckless disregard for the separation of powers and your own responsibilities under our constitutional system.”

“The House Judiciary Committee is commencing an immediate investigation into this matter, which raises both serious constitutional and statutory issues,” the letter signed by Nadler and six other House Democrats said.

The ACLU has declared that they will also challenge the declaration, per Daily Wire:

Following Trump’s Rose Garden announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) wasted little time in announcing its plan to sue the Trump Administration. The ACLU press release reads, in relevant part:

The ACLU will argue that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to evade Congressional funding restrictions is unprecedented and that 10 U.S.C. § 2808, the emergency power that Trump has invoked, cannot be used to build a border wall. Congress restricted the use of that power to military construction projects, like overseas military airfields in wartime, that “are necessary to support” the emergency use of armed forces.

Many conservative legal scholars disagree with the ACLU’s analysis. In particular, John Eastman of the Claremont Institute and John Yoo of Berkeley Law and the American Enterprise Institute, each of whom formerly clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice Clarence Thomas, have both expressed their belief that President Trump’s national emergency is being enacted declared pursuant to Congress’s delegated statutory authority. There is also the separate threshold question as to whether the ACLU would even have proper standing to sue, under Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

On Tuesday evening, Trump sent a tweet saying he’s getting $23 billion for “border security.”

That’s close to five times more than the original $5.7 billion asking price.

Was just presented the concept and parameters of the Border Security Deal by hard working Senator Richard Shelby. Looking over all aspects knowing that this will be hooked up with lots of money from other sources….

….Will be getting almost $23 BILLION for Border Security. Regardless of Wall money, it is being built as we speak!

Trump is getting things done for the American people, day after day, month after month.

It’s too bad that some people can’t realize that.

Washington Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal wants America to pay “reparations” to border crossers.
