Re: Elizabeth Warren Has Native American Heritage

The Cherokee Nation issued a statement Monday declaring Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) DNA test results “inappropriate” and a “mockery.”

 

On Monday, Warren released her DNA test results to the far-left Boston Globe’s Annie Linskey, who has already had to issue two humiliating corrections. Hoping to spin the results in the best way possible, Linskey botched the math on the DNA findings, naturally, in Warren’s favor.

 

The truth is that even if you believe the results, Warren might have anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1024 Native heritage, which means she has as much Native heritage as the average white American, which means her claim to be a Cherokee has been debunked by her own DNA test.

 

The Cherokee Nation is having none of it. In a blistering statement, Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr. writes, “A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America.”

 

This is an important fact and especially true of Warren’s DNA test, which did not include any American Indian DNA whatsoever to compare her results with.

 

Buried in the Boston Globe story is this bombshell: “To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American.”

In other words, all Warren’s DNA test really proves is that she might be 1/64 to 1/1024 Mexican, Peruvian, or Colombian.

 

What’s more, while some tribes are willing to accept 1/16 ancestry, they are not willing to do so through unreliable DNA tests. What they want to see is actual genealogy, and the truth is that Warren has no documentation to prove that her family has ever had an American Indian in her family. Warren points to her great-great-great grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, as part Cherokee, but all the documentation of the time lists her as “white.”

 

Hoskin continues: “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.”

 

The Nation is especially angry over Warren using an “inappropriate” DNA test to “claim any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation.”

 

Doing so is “inappropriate and wrong,” he writes adding, “It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, who ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove.”

Hoskin closes with, “Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

 

Thus far, every element of Warren’s claim to be part American Indian has been debunked. She continues to stand by her story about her mother and father being forced to elope due to discrimination against her mother’s Indian heritage. The only problem with that claim is that contemporaneous news reports and documents, including a wedding license, appear to show that her parents had a church wedding in 1932 — which would mean there was no dramatic elopement.

Between 1987 and 1995, Warren identified herself as “Native American” while she was teaching law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Harvard.

 

The DNA test proves she had no basis to make such a claim.

 

In fact, her DNA test proves Warren is every bit as European as the average white American.

Warren was goaded by President Trump into taking the DNA test. The president frequently mocks her false claim to Indian ancestry. Upon the release of the results Monday morning, both Warren and the Boston Globe were trying to claim she had been vindicated. Warren and her media allies are obviously hoping to neutralize this issue as she considers challenging Trump for the presidency in 2020.

 

Unfortunately for Warren, though, two massive corrections and one press release from the Cherokee Nation later, it would appear as though she is not only further exposed on this issue, but her bungling of the rollout will have many questioning if she has the judgment and poise to take on a presidential campaign.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

If I were President Trump and Warren gets the dem nomination, I would take a DNA test and publish the results.  It is a good chance he is at least as much Native American as Warren and maybe more...  LOL

There is a well known aphorism that begins, "want in one hand"...

 

Will the orange toad pay $1 million to her chosen charity before hell freezes over?

 

Nope - not a chance.

 

So - how closely genetically related is cadet bonespurs to Nazi Adolph Hitler? 

Hitler was a far more patriotic and courageous man than cadet bonespurs... 

Hitler served in uniform in WW1 - was wounded - and returned to duty after he recovered from his injuries...

 

All liddle donnie did was bed multiple young and foolish women/goldiggers of dubious moral and ethical standing while dodging the draft - he did boast of avoiding being infected with any STDs...

This issue is a Loser for Warren - the Cherokee Nation has already condemned her for trying

to associate herself with them through of all things a DNA test that predicts she's 0.03 percent Native American

 

She's playing right into Trumps hands - she tried to quiet him about her claims and all she ended up doing was giving him a - well your not enough Indian & the Cherokees say it's so

I’m sure you will get half of your wish and no money will come out of Trump’s pocket.

Yup. He always talks a good game about donating to charity. 

 

But he never ever actually gives money.

Trump: “I will give you $1 million to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian. I have a feeling she will say no.”


Senator Elizabeth Warren released the results of DNA testing that “strongly supports” that she had a Native American in her family tree going back generations, according to a report.
Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field, determined in his analysis that a pure Native American ancestor appears in Warren’s family “in the range of 6-10 generations ago,” the Boston Globe reported.
That’s consistent with the Massachusetts Democrat’s family lore from her Oklahoma upbringing that her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was partially Native American.
Bustamante, who won a 2010 MacArthur Fellowship, also known as a Genius Grant, found that the “vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European, but “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”


“Who cares?” Trump said when told about Warren’s DNA test.


After the release of the findings, Warren on Twitter reminded Trump that he promised to give $1 million to charity if she could prove her heritage and said he could send the check to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, which supports Native American victims of sexual violence.


Asked about the $1 million, he replied: “I didn’t say that. You better read it again.”


During a July 5 campaign rally in Montana, Trump said if he’s debating “Pocahontas” and she brings up her Native American heritage, he’ll challenge her on it using one of those DNA kits they “sell on television for $2.”

I had forgotten his offer.  Something to be shouting when joining the "mob" at the capital to protest all the other incompetence and corruption.
