    She’s never been a gambling fan, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren is pushing federal legislation to help deliver a casino to a tribe with a checkered past as she struggles to neutralize her “Pocahontas” problem. Her bill, introduced in March with fellow Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Edward Markey, would allow the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to build a $1 billion gaming resort about halfway between Boston and Cape Cod even though a federal court blocked the project in 2016. The Senate bill and its House companion have drawn cheers from tribal leaders eager to resume construction on the lavish complex while stirring resentment...

    The words, emblazoned on two signs that hang off U.S. Senate candidate Shiva Ayyadurai's campaign bus, appear next to two images: one of a stoic Ayyadurai looking into the camera, and another of a closeup of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wearing a Native American headdress. Ayyadurai, a 54-year-old scientist born in Bombay, India, told the Washington Times the city of Camridge, Mass., had ordered him to remove the signs because they were placed "without approvals and permits." He believes this was instead a case of the city trying to clamp down on his right to free speech. “This is a...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has called on the Israeli government to show "restraint" amid what has now been weeks of protests by Hamas terrorists who have swarmed the Israeli border and stoked violence. "I am deeply concerned about the deaths and injuries in Gaza," Warren was quoted as saying. "As additional protests are planned for the coming days, the Israel Defense Forces should exercise restraint and respect the rights of Palestinians to peacefully protest." The quote is likely to rankle the pro-Israel community, which has become increasingly strained with the Democratic Party as lawmakers such as Warren adopt a...

    The Washington Free Beacon reported that MSNBC reversed its decision to hold a live town hall at Westfield State University with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) on April 13 after the school received backlash from some students. The cable network came under fire on social media for plans to appear on the college's Dever Stage just a few days before the drama program began performances of the musical Urinetown. In Massachusetts, Urinetown trumps live MSNBC programming. Anaila Aleman, a Westfield State senior and theater major, said she and other cast members in the Urinetown production were told on Thursday night they...

    A Bay State college student gave U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s televised town hall-style forum the hook by standing up for her troupe’s performance of “Urinetown” that had already been booked for the same stage. Westfield State University President Ramon S. Torrecilha announced the MSNBC broadcast, set for Friday, is now called off after a social media campaign he criticized as costing the college a “missed opportunity.”

    Today’s Wall Street Journal publishes a letter to the editor by OMB Director and Acting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Mick Mulvaney. In the letter Mulvaney responds to the column by Senator Elizabeth Warren published in the Journal last week attacking his leadership of the CFPB. At NR, Ronald Rubin has another take on Warren’s column. Mulvaney’s letter seems to me a classic of the kind. I don’t think Mulvaney’s letter is subject to copyright and I am posting the whole thing below. Here it is: I write to correct misrepresentations made by Sen. Elizabeth Warren in “Republicans Remain...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 19, 2018 | Philip Wegmann
    Massachusetts voters may never know the true genetic heritage of Sen. Elizabeth Warren,D-Mass., but they can be very clear on what the law says about performing DNA testing without written consent. That's bad news for aspiring conservative super-sleuths, and Howie Carr in particular, who doubt that Warren really is of Native American ancestry. [Snip-em] While exceptions are made for clinical research, Massachusetts doesn't make allowances for genetic truther trolls eager to catch Warren in an obvious lie. And why should it? The senator has already embarrassed herself. Sans evidence of her ancestry, she submitted recipes to the Pow-Wow-Chow cookbook, claimed...

    Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts tried working herself up at Wednesday’s gun control rally outside the White House but couldn’t manage to find her stride despite being filmed by MSNBC. Warren was asked what was going through her mind, and she immediately blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for a lack of gun control reform. “The NRA has held Congress hostage for years now,” Warren said. “These young people have shown up to spring us free, to say you’re not here to do the work of the gun lobby. You’re here to do the work of the American people....

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren sought Sunday to bolster her shaky claims of Cherokee ancestry with the story of how her racist grandparents drove her parents to elope. But Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes says that account has its own credibility issues. Ms. Barnes, who said her research into Ms. Warren's family found "no evidence" of Native American ancestry, has challenged key elements of the senator's tale of how her parents, Pauline Reed and Donald Herring, defied his parents by running off to marry.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., argued that her family’s claim to Native American ancestry is an indelible part of who she is — something that can never be taken away. Warren defended herself on NBC’s “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” Sunday morning when asked what she thought about taking an easily accessible DNA test, such as those offered by 23andMe or Ancestry, to settle the ongoing controversy over her heritage. Rather than address that question specifically, Warren told a story about how her mother and father, born and raised in Oklahoma, met as teenagers and fell head-over-heels in love. Her...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in an interview broadcast Sunday said she knows who she is when pressed about her claims of Native-American heritage. She was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a Massachusetts newspaper, "Warren must resolve debate on heritage, which said a DNA test would "permanently resolve the issue." “Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is not intimated by the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre after he singled her and other liberal Democrats out in a speech Thursday smearing the tide of "socialism." Furthermore, in the Massachusetts senator's tweet rager Thursday evening, she pledged to fight the NRA "at every turn" in advocating for stricter gun control measures and also plugged a fundraising link to her re-election campaign. "Wayne LaPierre can call me whatever he wants. He doesn't scare me," Warren said hours after LaPierre's speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

    For just $69, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren could settle the question of her ancestry once and for all. That is the sale price (regularly $99) that Ancestry DNA is charging for searching your family genealogy. Millions of Americans have done it, either through Ancestry, 23andMe or some other ancestry research organization. Better still, she could walk down the street in Cambridge and consult with fellow Harvard educator Henry Louis Gates Jr., who hosts the popular and fascinating PBS television program “Finding Your Roots.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren says President Donald Trump disrespects Native Americans by referring to her as "Pocahontas," and she says that while she's not enrolled in any tribe, "I never used my family tree to get a break or ... advance my career." Warren says her parents married in Oklahoma in 1932, and that "the story they lived will always be a part of me. And no one — not even the president of the United States — will ever take that part of me away." Trump frequently refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock the Democrat's claims about being part...

On Tuesday, The Daily Caller reported that Warren was conspicuously not scheduled to speak at the Tribal Nations Policy Summit in Washington, DC, despite being the only Senator to claim a Native American heritage. (RELATED: Elizabeth Warren Absent From Tribal Nations Policy Summit) Warren apparently changed her mind about appearing at the summit and made a surprise appearance on Wednesday, addressing allegations that she has lied about her ancestry.

    In an interview on MSNBC's All In, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) fretted about the employment future of DREAMers if they are not given legal status in the upcoming budget bill deal. She also denounced the "deportation cloud" over 800,000 DREAMers, that "on a whim," the president can just say, "done, you are out of here." "If these people don't have legal status, then how is it they're going to work in the United States? How are they going to support themselves? How are they going to support their families?" the Senator asked. "We built a country based on the notion...
