Pocahontas descendant calls for apology from Warren
Claims by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to have a heritage including Native American ancestry, which prompted President Trump to deride her as â€śPocahontasâ€ť and commentators to reach further for a â€śFauxahontasâ€ť label, continue to backfire.
Now the latest reaction comes from Debbie White Dove Porreco, who is a descendant of the actual Pocahontas, the famed 17th century Powhatan princess.
She appeared on â€śTucker Carlson Tonightâ€ť and said bluntly, â€śIt did prove that she wasnâ€™t the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long. I think sheâ€™s guilty of claiming sheâ€™s an American Indian but has no proof â€“ and then [is] using it for applications for college and political reasons.â€ť
She continued that Warren â€śneeds to â€¦ apologize to everybody for what she has done.â€ť...

She is probably one of the more serious candidates, but she doesn't have the experience of being a governor such as Bill Weld the former Massachusetts Republican governor:

LOL! Seriously, doing something like that never crossed my mind. I would think that even the most naive person would know they should have documentation to back up such a claim; Warren should let the matter drop and stop embarrassing herself and her family.

I am also of Native American descent on my father's side which would not be revealed in DNA testing. It's my understanding that it is only through the mother's side that a certain marker is passed on. (I'm not an expert, please feel free to correct me.) But neither have I used my NA heritage for any special consideration or privilege as I have never lived on a reservation or been part of that culture. This is really much ado about nothing, IMO.

So great to have a conservative judge on this nations Supreme Court...and for a lifetime appointment. What a victory, and no matter how deep the liberals dug, no matter what underhanded, and highly, out of the ordinary, schemes they concocted, and no matter what other outrageous tricks they tried; even planting/inviting hecklers to be present during the confirmation hearing, they just couldn't get the job done, and they are furious. Normally, when they set out to destroy someone, that person is destroyed, but Trump, and Kavannaugh...their efforts have done nothing but backfire on them, and make them look desperate, infantile, and just plain foolish. I sure hope that the mid-term elections reflect American disgust with their Senator's overall conduct, and attempt to destroy a man, personally and professionally over utter nonsense.
Christine Ford made out good either way though. Her attorneys went on record during the hearing that they were representing her, pro-bono, and in addition to that, and they probably kicked themselves after hearing this, but when the Republicans representative attorney asked about monies being made, Ford stated that she had set up a GoFundMe account, and I think at the time of her testamony, the total was up to close to $500K, and now, 630K.
I'm not sure I'd look to Elizabeth Warren herself for any truth on this matter. What's she gonna say..."Just kidding, guys. you got me...ha-ha, ok, let's move on, people". No, she's using her own mother now as her scapegoat so that she can claim ignorance.
If you want overkill on the topic of the background of Elizabeth Warren this article sure will do it

"I never asked for documentation from my mother when she talked about our Native American heritage," she said in the ad. "What kid would? But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part-Cherokee and part-Delaware, so my parents had to elope."
"Let me be clear," she continued. "I never asked for, never got any benefit because of my heritage. The people who hired me have all said they didn't even know about it."

I suppose you would have to call Elizabeth Warren's mother a liar, which I really doubt that she was, So?
Stevenr, I do know that individual tribes from an article I read, have different standards for who can be a member or not:
powwow articles wrote: ...the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians a minimum of 1/16 degree of Cherokee blood for tribal enrolment, while the Bureau of Indian Affairsâ€™ Higher Education Grant expects you to have the minimum of ÂĽ Native American blood percentages.
That is 25% of your blood is from Native American ancestors.

Looks like Lizzy Warren isn't going to make it-- to be officially a member of a tribe that is.
Jim. Correct me if Iâ€™m wrong, but is there not a stipulation that you must have a certain percentageâ€¦ I believe itâ€™s somewhere around 12%â€¦ or 1/8th of Native American blood in order to actually draw any type of benefit. Now, Iâ€™m not great at mathâ€¦ But I believe there is a slight difference between the 1/8th and 1/1024th that her test seems to place her in. On top of that, from what I understand she was actually tested against South/Central Americans not actual native North Americans. It seems to me that the liberal media is skirting those issues in their hurry to promote the nazi party â€śone drop of Jewish bloodâ€ś rule. Just saying
Adriel, I was just tempted to copy your comment whole, and point out that it's really the Republicans, at least some of them, who are consistent and just basically about one thing spreading falsehoods about Democrats Pity, because the truth about many of them is bad enough, but adding falsehoods about them, make the people wonder âť—

Democrats do have to try extra hard to get votes, so we must expect a little economy with the truth in their politics. In their ideology. In their political science. In their public performances. In their character. In their histrionics. In their communication. In their portrayal. In their representation. and in their soup!!

Hi Jim, the picture is much, much bigger than that. Not only has she always claimed that a large part of her heritage is native American, but she took advantage of her way overblown bloodline, to claim minority status in order to give her an advantage from college on up. Her DNA test shows that she is something like 1/64th to 1/1024th native American, or somewhere in there without looking it up. Again, I haven't looked this up yet, but I heard a discussion on this on the radio last night, and a guest had said that the average American, on average, has more native American DNA than this woman does.
Warren reminds me of Rachel Dolezal who had claimed she was black, and was even an activist for the NAACP. They're both frauds for personal gain.
She, Warren, has absolutely nothing to apologize for. she took her DNA test and it showed what her genetic background was. It all started with Donald Trump's attack on her claiming that she didn't have this DNA and she proved that she did.
Now the Indian tribe can be worked up about her appearing to claim she's automatically part of the tribe but that's really not what she started out with. Like so many others she was just answering a Trump insult,
In the following list of articles you will find Trump's relationship with Native Americans which has not been good.
