Jig's Up, Cherokee Liz
Investor's Business Daily ^ | May 18, 2012 | Editorial

Posted on 05/20/2012 11:07:37 AM PDT by billorites

There's no truth whatever to Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's claim to Indian ancestry. She's been proved a fraud. Time for her to fess up and end this charade.

All the evidence she's offered to justify listing herself as a minority on law school directories the last 25 years has been shot down. The Harvard law professor's claims just don't stand up to scrutiny.

The New England Historical Genealogical Society this week reversed its claim it had proof of Warren's alleged Cherokee heritage. That proof was hearsay Warren fed the society, and in turn, the Boston Globe.

She cited the word "Cherokee" scrawled on a distant relative's 1894 Oklahoma marriage license.

But Breitbart.com dug the records up and found no such thing. Digging further, the news site found quite the opposite: Warren's great-great-great-grandfather rounded up Cherokees and herded them along the infamous "Trail of Tears" into Army stockades.

Shamed, the Globe had to run a correction.

Unless Warren can offer proof, she should quit her post at Harvard Law, which has touted her as its "first woman of color." She plainly wasn't hired on merit.

Warren should also withdraw from her race against Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. Such dishonesty isn't worthy of any office, let alone one of the nation's highest.

She also owes Native Americans an apology. They're justifiably outraged over a white leftist gaming the racial spoils system (that white leftists created), and enjoying an affirmative-action leg-up at their expense.

"She needs to admit the truth," Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes said. "There is no documentation showing she has Cherokee ancestry. She needs to come clean and release her employment records."

Of course, this would be the decent thing to do. Given Warren's sleazy Wall Street-bashing, we're not holding our breath she'll take the high road.

Warren was just following the sterling example set by Barack Obama and Professor Ward. Both of them are embraced by the MSM and liberals and held in great esteem.

This is exactly what Obama did. He gamed the system to his financial and educational benefit by making claims and declarations on documents which constructed him to be something other than what he legally was. A felony I might add on the parts of both.

Here in lies the trap Warren sets for Obama.

Fauxcahantos WOULD be in trouble if she weren't a democrat and if she weren't running in one of states that defines the heart of socialism and corruption in the US.

As it is no doubt a great many massholes will still vote for her in spite of her being an obvious liar simply because she's a democrat, and to them being a liar isn't nearly as important as being a democrat. Some will doubtless vote for her because she IS a liar and she represents their morality and beliefs better than any republican.

Sounds like the global warming crowd using each other as to the proof. Outside scrutiny be damned.

It doesn’t matter. Leftism is, and is about the Big Lie. Basically, no matter what you do or have done, your fellow leftists do not and will never give a damn. All that means anything is that you’re one of them.

If she’s finished with that fake Cherokee background, I could use it for a bit of diversity advancement. I am sure I would be the only Cherokee at my job. I hope she doesn’t mind.

Don’t you people get it yet?? It’s to whether it’s “true” or not, it’s how one feels about the claim they’re making, if one’s intentions are good, than it becomes the truth. (On the Left, that is)

Democrats propose and enact laws (or regulations) to buy votes and wealth. When their pockets are full and they are not up for re-election, does anyone expect them to not cut in at the front of the line?

It seems to me that she should be tried and convicted of fraud that potentially cost hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not millions) over the time the fraud was perpetrated.

She wants Ted Kennedy's seat. Kennedy lied about Chappaquiddick; got away with it - and still was elected over and over in Massachusetts.

Warren is only following the Democrats' standards. If Kennedy could get away with a lie, why not her? She lied about her Cherokee ancestry to get what she wanted. These people have no scruples. The Liberal/Dem voters in Massachusetts won't care. They will excuse it as a "mistake." Obviously, lying is totally acceptable there, as long as a Democrat is spinning the story.

My husbands great aunt who was born about 1880, told my husband that there had been a Indian grandmother in the family. But she said “don’t worry, she was the white folks kind of Indian”. What ever that meant I think it was a racist comment. My blond blue eyed husband liked nothing better than knowing he had Indian blood, even it was way way back.

This Wannabecherokee Bitch is no different than the politicians who stole the homes of my Cherokee ancestors.
Just another user taking advantage of anything she can...rather reminds of of Chief John Ross who ran the tribe dishonestly, corruptly and was the cause of the deaths of so many on the Trail of Tears....he was only 1/8th Cherokee with big blue eyes! Frankly, since the modern tribe is so pro Obama and anything liberal I’m surprised they didn’t go to bat for her!

And then he signed an executive order to hide all those records until the end of time.

Many many felonies will be found in those records, if they are ever opened.

Obama’s team managed to open many sealed documents that destroyed his opponents and allowed him to run unopposed in many cases - why can’t that be turned around on him?

I know, he had all those judges in his pocket.

CHEROKEE CHECKBOX
Tune: Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)

She took some small Cherokee ration
Put this on her information
"Native A," although it's slight
She checked the box even though she's white

Took a while till it was known
That Liz is Anglo to the bone
And all the claims she made before
Aren't Lizzie Warren's anymore

Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high

She took the whole Indian fable
Used it for her PC label
Though she's blond with eyes of blue
She's still a redskin through and through

Cherokee Checkbox, Cherokee Pride
So proud you hold your cheekbones high

But maybe someday when she's beat
Cherokee Checkbox will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
Will retreat
