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.

Palm Beach Officials Working on Plan to Extradite Trump to Manhattan

Wait…WHAT?!

Published

As Donald Trump continues to stew down at Mar-a-Lago, plotting what is sure to be a profound future in American politics over the next several years, there are now renewed concerns that his goals could be stunted by prosecutors from the Southern District of New York. The SDNY has been trying to nail Trump for years…maybe even longer.  It was only after he became President that they were able to gain the necessary traction to gather his tax returns and whatever other “evidence” they’ve been salivating over all the while. Now, in a sign that the investigation may be getting serious, Palm Beach officials are starting to wonder what sort of role they may have in the possible extradition of Trump from The Sunshine State back to The Big Apple. Law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County, Florida are reportedly developing a contingency plan in case Donald Trump is indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance. As the former president continues to wage war with political foes from Mar-a-Lago, Trump and his businesses are still under a grand jury investigation into allegations of banking and tax fraud. This raises the possibility of Trump being extradited to New York if he’s charged with wrongdoing on these matters. Politico reported Thursday that Florida officials are holding discussions about what they would do in that scenario. According to the report, Florida has an interstate extradition statute that would allow Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) “to intervene and even investigate whether an indicted ‘person ought to be surrendered’ to law enforcement officials from another state.” Trump and DeSantis are known to be allies, and the former has suggested that he would consider the governor as his running mate if he runs for president again — though DeSantis and Trump could also be formidable rivals in…

More Trouble for Matt Gaetz as Accomplice Cops a Plea Deal

Uh oh!

Published

on

Congressman Matt Gaetz has found himself in the scandal to end all scandals here in 2021, and things aren’t trending in the right direction for the Florida lawmaker this week. The ins-and-outs of the affair are a bit difficult to follow, but the sheer number of disparate storylines involved is enough to make even the most imaginative true crime writer roll their eyes.  There are claims that Gaetz was paying for underaged escorts, and that a man asked Gaetz to help him find a long-lost service member.  That request somehow turned into an extortion racket worth $25 million or so…and that’s not nearly the end of it. Gaetz has categorically denied any wrongdoing, (as any sane politician would), but now there appears to be a new wrinkle in his plan:  His buddy is ready to squeal. Joel Greenberg, a former Florida official ensnared in the federal probe into Rep. Matt Gaetz, is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges next week — potentially spelling trouble for the embattled Republican congressman. Greenberg, 37, will appear in federal court in Orlando, Florida on Monday, for a change of plea hearing, according to court documents. The plea deal will resolve some of the charges against Greenberg, a former Seminole County tax collector who has been accused of sex trafficking of a child, aggravated identity theft and wire fraud. Greenberg had been working for weeks toward a deal with federal prosecutors. This could set Greenberg up for an interview with the Department of Justice, who are also taking a good, hard look at what exactly the Congressman’s culpability is in all of this.
