Ann Coulter Letter

Elizabeth Warren dances with lies

Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, “Lies on Race Box,” is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard.Harvard took full advantage of Warren’s lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient “diversity” in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, “I am very proud of my Native American heritage.”

Except, oops, she has no more evidence that she’s an Indian than that buffoon out of Colorado, Ward Churchill.

The Boston Globe immediately leapt to Warren’s defense, quoting a genealogist who found a marriage license on which Warren’s great-great-uncle scribbled that his mother, Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee. This is not part of the official marriage license. (If I scribble “Kenyan” on Obama’s birth certificate, does that make it true?)

But let’s say it’s true. That would make Warren a dotriacontaroon — 1/32nd Cherokee. That’s her claim to affirmative action bonus points? You don’t know what it’s like to be 1/32nd Cherokee, to never have anyone to talk to, spending so many evenings home alone, wondering if there was some other 1/32nd Cherokee out there, perhaps looking at the same star I was.

Soon, however, the preponderance of the evidence suggested she wasn’t even 1/32nd Cherokee. The census records for 1860 list the allegedly Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, as “white.” Also, Warren’s family isn’t listed in the Cherokee registry. (Unlike Democrat voter rolls, to be on the Cherokee list, proof is required.)

On the other hand, we have what her son scribbled on his marriage license — something, by the way, that none of his siblings claimed about their mother.

So now we’re down to Warren’s reminiscence that her great-aunt used to point to a portrait of her great-great-grandfather and call him an Indian, noting his high cheekbones.

Family lore is not proof. Proof is contemporary documentation, produced under penalty of perjury, such as a census record. My mother told me she found me under a rock, but I don’t put that on job applications.

The universities that employed Warren rushed to claim that her fake Indian ancestry had nothing to do with it. They speak with forked tongue, causing heap-um laughter. (Harvard was so desperate for diversity, it made a half-black dilettante president of the Harvard Law Review!)

To grasp what a sin against political correctness this is, consider the Jesuitical debates about blackness regularly engaged in at our universities. About the time Lies on Race Box was getting a job with Harvard as a fake Indian — valued for her fake hunting and tracking skills — a debate broke out at Northwestern University law school about whether a potential faculty hire was black enough.

One professor wrote a heated three-page letter to the hiring committee complaining that the recruit “should not be considered a black candidate,” explaining, “(n)ot all with dark skins are black,” nor should they be considered “black in the U.S. context.” (Flash to: My exact position on Obama.)

Warren has defended herself, claiming she did it only so she would be invited to powwows, or what the great white father calls “meetings,” saying she hoped “I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am.”

What on earth does “people who are like I am” mean? Let’s invite Elizabeth because she’s 1/32nd Cherokee. We really need the 1/32nd Cherokee perspective around here. Maybe she has some old recipes that are 1/32nd Cherokee!

Then, the Warren campaign claimed it was sexist to question Warren about her bald-faced lie: “Once again, the qualifications and ability of a woman are being called into question by Scott Brown … It’s outrageous.”

First, Scott Brown has barely mentioned Warren’s stinking lie.

But, second, the only people who consider it a “qualification” to be 1/32nd Cherokee are university hiring committees. Possible Warren campaign speech:

“I am a dotriacontaroon American. I want to be a voice for those who are 1/32nd Cherokee, but also 1/32nd Pequot, 1/32nd Mohawk — basically the senator for all dotriacontaroons. Isn’t it time we had a senator who was 1/32nd Cherokee?”

Now it’s beginning to look like her ancestors not only did not suffer, but caused the suffering she’s getting the benefit of. The great-great-great-grandfather married to the not-Cherokee O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford turns out to have been one of the white enforcers on the brutal Trail of Tears, helping round up Indians from their homes in order to march them to a less desirable part of the country.

What’s next?

“Yes, and my other grandfather, Theophilus Connor …”

BULL CONNOR?

“Yes, but I swear, James Earl Ray is not a BLOOD uncle. We’re related only by marriage. At least that’s what my cousin John Wayne Gacy used to always tell me.”

Warren’s lie is outrageous enough to someone like me, who isn’t a fan of race-based affirmative action programs. Still, she is a liar, and she stole the credit of someone else’s suffering.

For liberals, it should be a mortal sin: Elizabeth Warren cheated on affirmative action.

    Good evening Annville!  Of course warren lied and cheated and according to some sources her work and analysis was more than sub-par

    The moron wrote:  ”Yep, it’s true. They just hide it in different areas to fool you.”

    Oh my gosh! You didn’t explain it to me before. Now I understand. You wear an aluminum foil hat just like the rest of us. And watch out for the black helicopters! It’s a conspiracy! Whooooaaaa! There goes another one!

  • wakeupmorons

    You’re not counting the war funding, the pensions, the VA and all the healthcare, etc… that “budget” you are referring to is a total fraud.

     you’re a complete joke, with no clue .   .   .

    You must be talking about all the money Obummer and the Marxist Democrats have handed out to their rich friends. Obummer and the Dims are the biggest Cons around.
    Never ever vote for a Democrat!!

     Mel how ya doing? Good to see you.

  • 1LonesomeScum1

     Sponging off all those divorced wives sure paid off, find the next one joey?

  • Toad

    Of course that’s ok. Conservative women deserve to be called such names because by them being conservative, they obviously are on the side of those waging the ‘war-on-women’.

    That’s leftist logic on display.

  • wakeupmorons

    LOL….again, don’t look into how the gov hides all the military spending in different areas to not shock the American people….just make fun of me….that’s what the right wing puppet masters have taught you to do.

  • Ribbey

     Hello Mel. Nice to have you here.  .  .

  • deeme

    Nice to see that red high heel….You have been missed…

  • under_1perfectredumbrella

    I am doing great!  What’s shakin with you.  This is almost as funny as 
    inmate No. 11593-051 taking 40% of the closed Dem primary in West Virginia last night!

  • wakeupmorons

    Bill Maher regularly has 2 conservative panelists and only 1 dem….by that standard comparing him to a Limbaugh is beyond a joke.

  • Toad

    Howdy friend, long time no see. Are you still waging your war on women? Say, why do you hate women so much? The DNC sure says you do.

  • wakeupmorons

    I don’t like Ed…he reminds me of the talkers on the right.

  • Sweetrae aka: LeAnn

     I saw that. Too funny and felon who doing time for extortion almost beats Maobama.

    That was amazing!  Barack Obama against an inmate.  One is guilty of fraud, extortion, and stealing.  The other is the inmate…

    I love the Dine people.  Two years ago in Billings, MT I had the opportunity to meet and share an evening, and more than a few beers, with Navajo dancer, Isaiah Bob and several members of his family.  It was an enjoyable and memorable evening.  Does that association get me any ‘race’ credits?  Ha. 

  • bloodaxe

    Hogwash. Bullshit. NPR is a far left mouthpiece and puts out nothing but left wing crap with the exception of Car Talk and sometimes Prairie Home Companion and its Tales from Lake Wobegone. But that’s OK. We still have free speech in this country even though folks like you hate it and would put a quick end to it if you could. 

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    Don’t “say” it’s a fraud. PROVE it’s a fraud. You haven’t offered any proof of anything since you started throwing this tantrum of yours.

    I counted the war funding, and if you eliminate pensions and healthcare, etc, then you in effect eliminate the military.

    Did you ever take a logic class? 

  • Ribbey

  • rightmostofthetime

    Glenn Beck outlines in one of his books the boondoggle that AMTRAK is. It’s the classic political slush fund. 

  • wakeupmorons

    It’s scientific fact that liberals are open to new information where as conservatives are not. Liberals just want the facts, they want to hear all sides and form their opinion. Many on the right simply don’t like this, they want right wing propaganda all day, every day – so they listen to rush and hannity by day, watch fox by night, and remain in a bubble.

  • BuckeyePhysicist

     Nah.  I don’t want to end it.  I just don’t want to pay for it.

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    Conservative by YOUR definition?

  • BuckeyePhysicist

     If it were proved life begins at conception would you still support abortion?

  • bustleton1

    You are overlooking how the Left defines “success!”  A program is successful if it requires the spending of public monies to fund it; to expand government; to hire pencil pushers to work in it; and from whom in turn union dues are taken from to shovel back to the Dem Party’s coffers.  That is the success of a program from ther Left’s perspective.  Forget any program results other than those; they don’t matter to the Left

  • deeme

    They accuse you of everything they do..but then when you ask them to prove you are a hater too ,they go away..I can’t stomach most of it, it’s so in your face, just the fact that no one is off limits, including people’s little handicapped kids..

  • wakeupmorons

    Limbaugh has been a failure at everything but preaching hate on AM radio. Ann was born with a silver spoon in her mouth.

  • Toad

    So you’re saying you have no supporting source? Why don’t you just google it. If it’s that easy for an ‘idiot’ like me, why is it so hard for a sophisticate as yourself?

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    Hey Ribbey , how’s Elvis…

  • Toad

    So true, they see everyone else from the mirror they see themselve’s in and being taught nothing could possible be their fault or responsibility, then assign it to others.

  • 1LonesomeDove1

     Hmmm, that would make Ann a Kennedy, wouldn’t it?

    You don’t have to answer. I understand why.

  • Ribbey

     Ditto!!!!!

  • BuckeyePhysicist

    If Elizabeth Warren is going to claim to be a Native American then I can state that her policies are “off the reservation.”

  • JayC777

     What is your definition of failure, where Limbaugh is concerned?

    What is your definition of being born with a silver spoon in your mouth?

    I call someone a failure when they call successful people failures.

    Where is the rock from under which Ann was discovered?  I would bow down and kiss that dear piece of stone.

  • bustleton1

    It does not seem that the 2 “conservative” panelists-which I doubt in any case-have much input with Maher.  They are probably props for him if anything; butts for his sick twisted jokes.

  • under_1perfectredumbrella

    Exactly, deny, deflect, blame and if that does not work smear, twist and throw whatever leftist whacko card is available and then cry foul.

    Geesh friggin louezze it is always Groundhog Day in Annville

    That is why the United States ranks at the bottom of industrialized nations in education. Where we rank the highest in though is self-esteem.

    Thank you left, thank you Democrats, thank you ‘wakeupmormons’ and your ilk. You are seeing in real time the present destruction of this great nation with the pride you display for your actions.

  • drofmanythings

    Her academic peers haven’t all joined in by circling the wagons for this wannabe Native American. I hear some of the egg-heads at Hah-vayd are actually shunning Warren and making jokes about her behind her back. If true, at least there are a few of those elitist types who have a toe in reality. Maybe Ward Churchill will send her a sympathy card, or better yet,  they can start a club together so she can obtain the quality conversation she craves from like-minded frauds. They could call it the 1% Club, as in that proportion of Native American genes.

  • bloodaxe

    Since you’re so offended by right wing talk radio may I be so bold as to suggest you stop listening to it?

  • Maximus_Legitimus

    obama’s campaign czars stated that Romney’s ancestors were polygamists.  Turns out none of Romney’s ancestors were polygamists, but, obama’s daddy was.  Too funny.

  • A_friendly_reader

    Jesse, Jews have been persecuted throughout history. Driven from the Middle East, driven from Spain, pushed into ghettos before the Nazi scourge.

    If there’s any “divine message” from the Holocaust, I’ve never heard or read about it. 

    Jews like Quakers, Mennonites and other groups are more socially conscious. It’s in their teachings. I also note that such groups generally, if not always, hew to the left. 

    I think the political aspect of their outlooks precedes the creation of modern statism, with its technological ability to destroy the liberty that’s grown in recent centuries — especially the last century.

    But keeping the focus on Jews: there’s no question but that they’ve been targeted for heinous persecution and even extermination over the millenia, as early Christians were. Their communities have sustained them. I extrapolate from that, that their sense of community has shaped their politics.

    I remember learning in school that Jews also played a prominent role in early socialist movements in Germany; I don’t know about other countries. They obviously have been disproportionately influential in the Dem Party and at least some social justice movements in the U.S. The NAACP’s founders were largely Jews.

    In your position, I’d try to bend conversation to anti-Semitism on the part of today’s left, including the Occupy movement, which happily welcomed support from formal Nazi groups and David Duke; and to hatred by lefties like Jimmy Carter, Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Rep. Jim Moran, Farrakhan, Rev. Wright, ex-Rep. Meeks and that entire moveon gang.

    I’d also try hard to put focus on Dems’ outlandish bias against Israel, for Palestinians and for all those jihadists who want to exterminate Jews as well as the US.

    Another MoveOn talking point from someone who’s never listened to his program and most likely no other radio host either.

    Frig I have lost my place i do not come here often enough to remember how this wierd posting system works

  • wakeupmorons

    LOL, why don’t YOU google it? My guess is the problem is you don’t realize that all the entitlement spending isn’t federal tax dollar spending, those programs are funded seperately from payroll taxes and currently have massive trillion dollar surpluses. Go google a budget chart, take out those things, and look at what’s left….and see how much of the total sum is military versus the rest.

  • deeme

    Notice how he always goes after women and children, I’d help Sara kick his ass but she doen’t need it..

  • wakeupmorons

    Moron……they don’t put the pensions and healthcare in the “military budget”…just look it up and you’ll see. And entitlement programs aren’t paid for with federal dollars, they are paid with by payroll taxes – and they have huge surpluses. So now go look at the budget, take out entitlements, and look at what’s left – you’ll find the vast majority of federal tax dollars go to the military.

    Again…this isn’t explained to you by the sources you read and listen to for a reason…

     Hey, that’s taking things a little bit too far Jerry.

    Kidding around is one thing, but calling someone that, is out of bounds.

    I’m seriously hurt by this comment.

    Like much of their music, I grew up with it.

  • westoast

     I just became a liberal today.
    Okay. You win. I won’t be anymore.
    Man, you are good!

  • Toad

    Gotta love the Ickey shuffle!

  • A_friendly_reader

    So why even mention Doris Day? 

    I would liken those Buckeye gals to Dennis Day or Danny O’Day.

    Even though I see I’m hopelessly outnumbed by Ohioistas.

  • A_friendly_reader

    Make that “outnumbered,” though “outnumbed” isn’t untrue.

    I’m not certain how to respond to that … other than to say Obama plans on providing you a medical plan that takes them both away.

    Cleveland Browns fans are liberal union slime who drink cheap American beer, smoke unfiltered Camels in public, and who change the oil in their mullets every 3,000 miles.  They only showers they have ever experienced involves meteors.  Their stinking breath could knock a feral raccoon on its butt from 40 paces and they have nasty bulbous beer guts sufficiently large to have their own system of orbiting moons.  The only thing more foul than their breath is their language and their idea of an accessory is an oversize dog bone.  They have stringy mustaches and when they raise their hands at a game and they have sleeveless shirts on, it looks like they have a rabid squirrel under each armpit.  Their fetid belches could register on the Richter Scale and they think a layer of brown and orange body paint is sufficient protection against the subzero temperature winds from Lake Erie.

    Then there are the MALE Browns fans….

    You’ll get the chance to put the knife in.”

    Or better yet from “Dark Side of the Moon”;

    And every day the paper boy brings more.”

    To Mothers Everywhere

    You are the foundation of civilization. You are the glue that holds families in place. You kiss our wounded knees and mend our hurt feelings with kind, warm words that replace despair with happiness.

    You encourage us to hope and inspire us to dream. When we fall you pick us up. When we stray you bring us in. You lift the limitations we have for ourselves.

    Your sacrifice, dedication, and hours spent toward the betterment of our lives are the cornerstone upon which we build our future. You soften would-be hardened hearts.

    Your stitch sews the fabric of our lives. You are our moral compass, and as you go a nation follows.

    Happy Mothers Day to mothers everywhere

    The socialist tactics have worn off on Native Americans who’s lawyers see $$$ signs in going to the United Nations to reclaim Mount Rushmore.  Setting the example our President and several other great patriots run to the UN to make political statements and file complaints against our country.

    The UN our great friends  who violate human rights on a daily basis is where our sniveler and blamer in chief  went to make charges against American states for human rights violations for making attempts to enforce our immigration laws.  This same King has signed every known deal with the UN to control everything on Earth and make America a cash cow for the rest of the World including off shore drilling royalities. .

    Of course in the case of the tribes or tribe that wants to sue for Mount Rushmore this trick was not influenced by a tribal member but by a slobbering progressive lawyer of the same breed that infests Washington DC..you know the lawyers that inhabit our congress the people who have Royal rights and favors after being elected by the people and for everyone else but the people. 

    The commercials on TV by the hundreds of Ambulance chasing Law firms has gotten so bad you need a law degree to watch commericials.  The World cup for progressives is who can sue the most for the most after all that is what built America law suits… not hard work and honesty.

    James, you nailed it with your “paragraph” as follows–

    “The gay movement say the tolerance that they experience is not enough that want validation of their lifestyle to be considered normal as heterosexuality. Notice when the homo-friendly media and the entertainment folks portray homosexuals. The homosexual is painted as being brighter, warmer, more compassionate, sensitive, and much more lovable than the normal person.”

    It will be defined as this—Marrage; Man and Woman only, or there are no sexual and marriage rules for anybody, period.

    Jesse, I’m replying to this post because it won’t seem to let me reply to any of the bazillion folks who’ve already responded to this – including your good self. So if this seems out of place here, sorry.

    For what it’s worth, my oldest friend – known him for 50 years or so – is a walking, talking, breathing stereotype: An Orthodox Jewish, liberal, intellectual social-worker. We’ve argued politics for decades. I asked him, back in 2008, why, in his view, were so committedly liberal that they would even *consider* voting for a clown like Emperor Palpatine. He first said that it was because Jews were afraid of a Christian theocracy in the US, if they voted conservative. I pointed out that there’ve been conservatives who haven’t trumpted their Christianity (Reagan comes to mind, as does the partly Jewish Goldwater), and there have been libs who *have* made a big deal about it (Carter, most obviously, but Clinton and even Obama) and the libs have still gotten the Jewish vote. He then decided it was because the Left is “more inclusive and tolerant”…and Jews have been the victims of intolerance and exclusion. Whe I pointed out the manifold instances of hatred and intolerance from the Left, the answer was “Well, you know me, I don’t to the political thing.” This after half a century of discussions, debates, arguments (but never fights). When I responded “What?!” I never heard from him again. Sad, isn’t it?
