Make no mistake, “Pocahontas” is running for president in 2020. Identity politics is the “HOLY GRAIL,” for progressive Democrats like Warren.
In fact, Senator Elizabeth Warren has been proclaiming to be of Native American heritage despite being void of any actual facts to back up her claim. She’s long benefited from this bogus claim, until Donald Trump came on the political scene and began mocking her well-publicized scam.
The wider issue isn’t whether Warren’s DNA test shows she’s between 1/64th to 1/1,024th Native American, which by definition can also include Mexican, Colombian and Peruvian bloodlines, but rather how she willfully manipulated the system, by faking her way into Harvard Law School, listing herself on her enrolment application as a “minority,” and claiming to be part Cherokee.
Her deception continued successfully throughout her formative years because elite universities were under immense pressure to diversify their faculties. The University of Pennsylvania even listed Warren as a “minority faculty member,” and she was actually referenced at Harvard Law School as the “first woman of color.”
The DNA test provided by Warren is replete with inconstancies, simply because their findings are ambiguous at best. The Boston Globe had to retract its initial report and correct their math and then concluded that Warren might “actually be less Native American than the average white American.
Adding, “The researchers found that European-Americans had genomes that were on average 98.6% European, 0.19% African, and 0.18 Native American.”
By that infinitesimal calculus, the likelihood that Donald Trump may possibly have more Native American blood then Elizabeth Warren, isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.
Warren has been attempting for years to walk back her claims once they become public knowledge of listing herself as a “minority” in order to gain status for future job offers.
A law school directory where Elizabeth Warren touted her Native American roots in the late 1980s and early 1990s once served as a tip sheet for administrators looking to identify and hire minority professors, according to a former chairman of the American Association of Law Schools.
On Monday Warren apparently looking towards 2020 attempted to put the heritage issue to rest by releasing her DNA test along with a family video and a fancy website, which has all the earmarks of a presidential campaign, with family members banning together claiming Native American ancestry.
The Massachusetts Senator also took to social media posting on Twitter; “My family (including Fox News-watchers) sat together and talked about what they think of @realDonaldTrump’s attacks on our heritage. And yes, a famous geneticist analyzed my DNA and concluded that it contains Native American ancestry.

However, Warren’s ill-timed self-aggrandized stunt has apparently divided and angered many on the left — including Native Americans who regard Warren as a political opportunist stealing their heritage.
Moreover with just 3-weeks before the crucial midterm elections, Warren’s release of the ambiguous DNA report may once again draw attention to how Democrats have used “identity politics” to divide individuals along racial and gender lines, perhaps even drawing attention to the chaos created by Democrats during the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, accusing him of a sexual assault almost 4-decades old, without a shred of evidence.
Even Obama’s former campaign manager weighed in with a tweet; “Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to make her announcement now? Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” – Jim Messina
