Elizabeth Warren Tries Yet Again to Explain Her Claim of Being Native American. It’s Laugh Out Loud Funny.

She hasn’t learned a thing.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is having a really rough week after the release of her DNA test — which was done in a bid to prove she’s of Native American descent — backfired on her, showing that she has as little as .09 percent Indian blood.

Rather than just owning up to being wrong and touting her actual lineage, she’s is attempting to once again explain away the whole situation. It doesn’t appear to be going all that well for her.

“I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me. Both of my opponents have made the same attack. I got this analysis back, and I made it public.”

The move turned out to be a PR disaster. While the mainstream media happily went along with the notion that 1/1,032 heritage actually makes someone Native American, many mocked Warren for the bizarre claim. Trump himself joined in, writing on Twitter: “Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her ‘a person of color’ (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!”

And Warren now says she regrets how she rolled out the DNA report — but stopped well short of apologizing.

“There’s a distinction between citizenship and ancestry. I wish I had been more mindful of that distinction,” she told the Globe. “The tribes and only the tribes determine citizenship. It’s their right as a matter of sovereignty, and they exercise that in the ways they choose to exercise it. I respect that distinction.”

Asked whether she made a mistake when she began identifying herself as Native American 30 years ago, Warren once again said she’s not really claiming to be part of any Indian group. “The distinction is: I’m not a citizen, never have claimed to be, and I wish I had been more mindful of that 30 years ago,” Warren said. “I wish I had been clearer about that — been more mindful, is the word.”

Warren was condemned for implying she was among the nearly 300,000 members of the Cherokee Nation in a statement released earlier this week. Warren is ineligible to join the group because she has no relatives listed on the Dawes Rolls, a hundred-year-old set of government documents that list Cherokee members.

As if that’s not rough enough, a descendent of Pocahontas, the famous 17-century Powhatan princess, has asked Warren for an apology for her wrongful claim of Native American ancestry, citing she did so for political gain.

“It did prove that she wasn’t the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long,” Debbie White Dove Porreco said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “I think she’s guilty of claiming she’s an American Indian but has no proof — and then [is] using it for applications for college and for political reasons.”

“She needs to … apologize to everybody for what she has done,” Porreco said, adding that Native Americans “feel betrayed, they feel disappointed.”

Much of the controversy over this situation stems from the fact that Warren listed herself as Native American in the Association of American Law School Directory and, according to a report from the Boston Globe, changed her ethnicity from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and also at Harvard University Law School.

Some of her most ardent critics claim that her declaring herself to be Native American is what helped her land the Harvard gig.

Even more troubling is the fact that Fordham Law Review actually gave Warren the title of Harvard Law’s “first woman of color.”

Americans, Still Trapped in Afghanistan, Plead with Biden Administration

The trouble in Kabul continues…

Published

on

Just because the news cycle is short and forgetful doesn’t mean that conditions are improving in stories that have fallen to the wayside.  This is just the new human attention span, and the marketing industry’s ability to hone in on the speed needed to stay ahead of your own thoughts.

And so, despite the unwillingness of the mainstream media to speak on the subject, there are still American citizens trapped under Taliban rule in Afghanistan, begging to be brought home.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on Thursday released a letter to President Joe Biden penned by an American citizen from San Diego, California, who is still trapped in Afghanistan alongside his wife.

“I am pleading with you again as a fellow proud American and as a husband to help my wife and I get home from Afghanistan,” the American citizen wrote in the October 15 letter to President Biden, weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the Taliban-controlled country.

Their tale is harrowing.

The American explained that he and his wife risked their lives to get through Taliban checkpoints, only to discover that the October 4 flight was canceled “because passengers did not have visas for UAE, where the flight was to land.” Another flight left on October 11, but the American said they never received a call to go to the airport.

“The third scheduled for 13 October was apparently cancelled. We learned details of the latter flights from our Congressman, the Hon. Darrell Issa, who flew to Doha to meet us, and not from the DOS,” he continued, explaining these were not their only attempts made since August.

President Biden promised that US forces would remain in-country until each and every American can get home safely, but then abided by a Taliban deadline to evacuate, abandoning a great many Americans and our allied partners.
