MSNBC Analyst Comes to Elizabeth Warren’s Defense, Slams Cherokee Nation Over Statement.

Wow. Just….wow.

Published

on

Many folks on the left appear to be desperate to come to the aid of Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who earlier this week released DNA test results that were supposed to somehow prove she Native American, but they actually proved the exact opposite.

Part of why this is such a big deal is because Warren has touted her Native American heritage for many, many years. She was even labeled the “first woman of color” to be admitted into Harvard law school based on her claims.

The Cherokee Nation released a statement about the whole fiasco condemning Warren’s claims and for attempting to use her alleged heritage for political gain.

This statement, however, did not go over well with an MSNBC analyst who claims the Cherokee Nation is racist for their treatment of Warren.

Noting that Warren “long claimed that she’s part Cherokee,” anchor Craig Melvin cited: “Cherokee Nation, Secretary of State Cherokee Nation, said in a statement, ‘DNA testing cannot prove that Warren is Cherokee or any other tribe.’” The host asked: “Do we think that the decision itself was a mistake? Do we think that the timing was a mistake?”

After Maxwell laughably argued that the move “put to bed a lot of the controversy” and somehow placed President Trump “on the defensive,” she blasted the Cherokee: “But in terms of the Cherokee Nation’s statement, I found that to be ridiculous.” Claiming that she was “also part Cherokee,” Maxwell accused the Native American tribe of racial discrimination:

So to be clear, I think that while the rollout of the DNA test and the decision to do a DNA test to be able to, quote, “prove” that she is part Cherokee, may not have been the best method. I also think that the Cherokee Nation’s response was problematic because it actually ignores the fact that DNA testing historically has been used to exclude black natives from tribal affiliation. And so, that history has been completely lost in this entire conversation, and that’s potentially very unfortunate.

A Democratic senator falsely claims to be Native American to advance her academic career, she does a DNA test showing that she may only be 1/1024th of that heritage, and one of her left-wing defenders attacks the Cherokee Nation as racist after they rightfully call out Warren for trying to misappropriate their culture. The contortions that the liberal media go through to defend Democrats are truly astounding.

There’s a lot of rumors floating around political circles that Warren is considering a presidential bid in 2020. If that’s true, there’s little wonder why she’s released this DNA test, as it could potentially giver her a boost among minorities. However, that might not actually be the case.

While many folks on the left are eager to come to her rescue, there’s quite a significant portion who think her claims are ridiculous and that she needs to apologize. Whether or not this debacle will impact her aspirations for the presidency remains to be seen.

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…

CONFIRMED: Reporters From Big Name Liberal Outlets Found to Have Working Ties With Antifa

Oh, is that RIGHT!?

John Salvatore

Published

Antifa is back in the news. Not good. If members of the mainstream media were honest with the American people – or themselves – they’d report this story. But they aren’t. And they won’t. From Red State: After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members. Lenihan posted his findings to Twitter where he put up a chart showing Antifa area accounts with their related members. We mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion). https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128731412180426752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128731412180426752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F He then shortened that dataset to only 1.65 percent of the total, leaving them with the accounts that are the most connected to the various official Antifa accounts with a minimum of eight connections or more. According to Lenihan, some had far more than just eight. As the data came out, Lenihan found more than a few journalists with a multitude of connections to Antifa. https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128734136640966656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128734136640966656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128746750586564614?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128746750586564614&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128761714445570049?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128761714445570049&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128740972702183425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128740972702183425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F “Antifa” has to single-handedly be the most ironic group in America today. The “anti-fascists” do nothing but promote fascism by refusing to let the other side speak. Former Vice President Joe Biden officially kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign by praising the uninformed group.
