    It's a matter of honor and fairness, something that a lot of people don't seem to comprehend.
    Many liberals are pretending not to comprehend (I'm not talking about you, noonwitch) it. If a Republican had done this they would have been outraged both for doing it for career and personal AND for cultural appropriation......which liberals have FITS over.

    But if it's a Democrat all of a sudden 'it doesn't matter'.

    It softens hands while you do the dishes but Warren's voice could curdle milk.

    Elizabeth Warren's heritage had nothing to do with honoring the Navaho code breakers, though.
    Warren is basing it on her high cheek bones as if only Indians have high cheek bones. Oh, her other "proof" is that she plagiarized someone else's cookbook and called it Pow Wow Chow.

    President Donald Trump recently drew the ire of politically correct liberals when he said to Native Americans, “You were here long before any of us were here…Although we have a representative in Congress who, they say, was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”

    Some liberals like Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has falsely claimed to be Native American, claimed that the terms “Pocahontas” was somehow an ethnic slur. However, an actual Native American who is a descendent of the real Pocahontas feels quite differently about the subject.

    Britain’s Sky News interviewed Pocahontas descendent Debbie “White Dove” Porreco, who said that President Trump asked her personally if calling Massachusetts Senator Warren was offensive to her.

    Recounted Porreco, “I know that he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren. He said, ‘well does that offend you when I use that?’ And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me.” She also added, “If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump. Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”

    Porreco, who was used as the model for the Pocahontas character in the animated Disney movie, happens to live in Palm Beach near Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and is herself a rags-to-riches American success story. Stated Debbie, “Sometimes when I’m dining at Mar-a-Lago, I think to myself, ‘You’ve come a long way from that Indian reservation you started in. Pocahontas had dreams and went to England. My dreams brought me to Palm Beach.”

    Based on this 2007 paper, A Preliminary Analysis of the DNA and Diet of the Extinct Beothuk: A Systematic Approach to Ancient Human DNA, describing the analysis of the Beothuk remains, it appears that only the HVR1 region of the Beothuk skeletal remains were able to be partially sequenced. An HVR1 level only match between two people could be from thousands to tens of thousands of years ago.

    According to Dr. Doron Behar’s paper, A ‘‘Copernican’’ Reassessment of the Human Mitochondrial DNA Tree from its Root, dating haplogroup formation, haplogroup C was formed about 24,000 years ago, give or take 5,000 years in either direction, and haplogroup X was formed about 32,000 years ago, give or take 12,000 years in either direction. There are individuals living in Europe and Asia, as well as the Americans who fall into various subgroups of haplogroup C and X, which are impossible to differentiate without testing beyond the HVR1 region. A match at the HVR1 level which only indicates C or X, without subgroups, could be from a very ancient common ancestor, back in Asia and does not necessarily indicate Native American heritage without additional testing. What this means is that someone whose ancestors have never lived outside of China, for example, would at the basic haplogroup level, C, match to the Beothuk remains because they shared a common ancestor 24,000 years ago.

Her mother told her she had Cherokee blood and she believed her mother. Big deal.


    It has nothing to do with the ceremony yesterday, and all Trump proves is that he has the maturity of a 10 year old every time he makes up names for those who oppose his agenda.

    It sucks for him that his party controls both houses of Congress and he still can't get his agenda passed. Or that he has small hands and Obama does not.
    I strongly disagree, because there is well documented evidence that she is WHITE with NO evidence of having an Indian ancestor. NONE whatsoever!

    Elizabeth Warren Information

    EXCERPT:

    Elizabeth Warren is a candidate for the U.S. Senate from the state of Massachusetts. She claims she is of Cherokee descent. She has come under fire for possibly using that claim to give her career a boost at a time when Harvard Law was under pressure to hire more minority professors. We have done extensive research on her ancestry and on the stories she has told trying to back up her claim. There is absolutely no evidence to suggest she actually had a Cherokee or American Indian ancestor. Despite repeated requests for her to release her personnel records from the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School, she refuses to do so.

    LINK

    In the link are many articles showing that she was and her past family have ALWAYS been classed as being White.
