iSteve commenter Lot notes:

She was more plausibly 1/16 native when she was a cute young brunette:

If Senator Warren used the brunette dye and some sunlamp, she’d look a little like Princess Tiger Lily:

iSteve commenter Last Real Calvinist replies:

Yes, you’d think if you were perpetrating racial identity fraud, you’d try to look as much like a member of the race you’re claiming to be as possible. But Fauxcahontas couldn’t resist getting a trendy blond bleach-n-dye job as she aged — and keeping it, even through all the controversy over her identification as an American Indian.

This seems like a corollary to Steve’s first rule of female journalists.

After your hair has turned white/gray, it’s easier to dye it blonde because the natural roots don’t show as badly, so you don’t have to dye it quite as often. Still, it would make sense for her to dye her hair dark and get darker contact lenses to keep with her American Indian claim. But, I suspect, Senator Warren likes being a blue-eyed blonde.

    So the WaPo found this old registration card and ran the story. They are trying to winnow the potential democratic 2020 field to avoid a messy primary. It looks like they want Warren to remain a Senator. They are going to be promoting Kamala unless and until she self-destructs. Instead of the DNC tilting the scales for Hillary in 2016 primaries, the media will take over that job in 2020.

    How was this information disclosed to WaPo? It must have been with the express written consent of Elizabeth Warren. If not, who blabbed? Any discloser who cannot produce Warren’s express written consent is in big, big trouble. The wronged party, Elizabeth Warren, can collect damages. And if she is media-savvy, she will hire the same lawyers who are suing on behalf of the “Covington Boys”, and will enlist the help of publicity expert Nathan Phillips as she goes on the warpath against the Bezos Bee.

    Warren would have to decide to burn her bridges to the Left to do that. If she sued the Post, they’d go after her if she ever ran for any sort of office again, and after watching the Post go after Trump, she knows how relentlessly they can hound someone.

    Since Warren would probably like to stay a senator if she doesn’t get the presidency, she’s likely to try to stay on nice terms with the Post.

    The one thing that catches my eye about the American Indian line is that it looks as if she intended to write just ‘American,’ and only added Indian as an afterthought, from the way it’s written over the next word.

  22. Elizabeth Warren is not an American Indian. But she is a native American, just like Steve, just like me, just like most readers here.

    1) Why do they black out her birthdate? That’s kind of a matter of public record.

She’s been married to husband #2, who presumably helped raise her 2 children, for over 38 years. That has to be pretty damn emasculating for a woman to marry you but keep the name of her first husband. For God’s sake take your second husband’s name or at least revert to your maiden name. I have a colleague whose second wife did the same thing. They are childless, and just went through a divorce. She fought like hell to take him for everything she could. The surname issue should have been an omen.

    It proves that she was identifying as a Native American at least as early as 1986. Do you know a lot of white females who got hired onto the faculty at HLS with a University of Houston/Rutgers education? The fact that she got any professorship at all is laughable: she never clerked and had no substantial firm experience. The fact that she got on faculty at Harvard Law School of all places is an absurdity. Law is a very hierarchical and credential-driven profession.

    I will give Warren the benefit of the doubt and say this: I suspect the “say you’re an Indian” idea was cooked by her second husband, and she went along with it in good faith. The flip side is that I wouldn’t be shocked if there are documents out there from the 60s/70s where Warren identified herself as white.

    Anyway, I bet this is why Warren had recently done this whole stupid business about taking the DNA test and issuing the apology. She was trying to minimize the damage to her presidential run in case the Post was taking a bead on her for a kill shot. She was hoping the DNA test would back her up, and when it really didn’t, she tried the apology.

    Yes, but her spouse has slave ancestry from 3,000 years ago – at least if you’re going to allow a Hebrew blackface fantasy from the 2nd Millennium B.C. to qualify you for slave ancestry, that is.

    It’s interesting that, if Kamala is elected president, neither of our two black presidents will have been descended from American slaves. Not only that, but Kamala herself will racially belong to the 2nd richest ethnic group in America (Indians) while being married into the first richest ethnic group (Jews), while having spent pretty much her entire life in one of the richest parts of the country (the Bay Area).

    It’s almost as if her black ancestry is really just being used as a cover for a lot of the same old power interests that we are used to, while throwing in one of the newer power centers (rich Indians). Kamala basically reflects the old and new powers in the Democratic Party in her own person – blacks, Jews, Indians (or Asians in general), and Californians. Oh, plus the part about being childless and sleeping your way up the career ladder.

    She just came out with a wealth tax, and thus put a giant target on her back. It’s the same deal with Bernie. They’ve been hitting him with the sexual harassment stuff from his previous campaign because of his economic populism. The liberal establishment wants someone like Harris who will be safe for the wealthy and be able to win an election with black, LGBTQ, etc. identity politics stuff.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2019/02/04/very-big-experiment-how-elizabeth-warren-would-try-forcing-billionaires-pay-her-wealth-tax

    In a world where Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) proposed “Ultra-Millionaire” wealth tax becomes law, rich Americans will have every incentive to try avoiding it.

    The plan would levy a 3 percent tax on net wealth above $1 billion, as well as 2 percent tax on wealth above $50 million. The plan would quickly begin reducing some of America’s largest fortunes by hundreds of millions of dollars. (Nobody whose net worth is less than $50 million would be affected by the tax.)

    Warren has proposed a series of aggressive new enforcement policies designed to prevent the wealthy from escaping it. She wants to dramatically beef up funding for Internal Revenue Service enforcement. She’s proposing a new requirement that a minimum number of very wealthy taxpayers face an audit annually, aiming to ensure they are not hiding assets from the tax collector.

    Most aggressively, Warren’s plan would create a new “exit tax” requiring anyone who renounces their U.S. citizenship to fork over 40 percent of their assets exceeding $50 million of their net worth to the federal government.

    But tax experts disagree over whether these measures would prove effective enough deterrents to evasion. Warren has emphasized the importance of redistributing the share of the national wealth increasingly owned by the top 1 percent, arguing her tax could raise about $2.75 trillion in 10 years, but that money could prove more difficult for the government to claim in practice than in theory.

    “This would be a very big experiment,” said Josh Bivens, director of research at the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning think tank. “You really do have to worry about the issues of mobility, and the avenues people have available to them to evade the tax. ”

    Anyhow, I think it’s fair to say that we’ve turned the corner on how presidential elections in this country are won.

    The press used to be the gatekeeper on who qualified as a serious presidential candidate. While you had occasional outliers (e.g., Ross Perot or Pat Buchanan in 1992) you basically had to have a “real” government job on your resume – senator, governor, vice-president, or a commanding general in a major war.

    Historians will tell us we turned the corner in 2016 with the election of Trump, but really it was with Obama. He beat out his traditional opponents in 2008 with nothing more than a speech at the 2004 convention and a few useless years in the U.S. Senate. From here on out contenders for the White House will win by going straight to the voters through social media.

    For better and for worse that means less having to please certain interest groups (at least before the election) and more red meat for the voters of either party. The Trumps, Harrises, Occasio-Cortez’s, etc are not going away.

If Wikipedia is to be believed, her only legal employment prior to getting an academic job was as a summer associate at Cadwalader.

They weren’t the kind that appeal particularly to Americans, but I’ve noticed three right-of-center Brits — Alec Guinness, David Lean, and Kingsley Amis — talk about how striking her intensely English good looks were in the dreary decade of the 1950s.

    Could be amusing if that starts getting spread around.

    Of course, there is also the Willie Brown connection: e.g., “On top of every successful woman there lay a man!”

    And then there is the fact that when she finally settled down she married a white guy, because, obviously, she could not find a black guy who she thought was good enough for her.

    No, no, these are not my slogans! I didn’t even vote against her when she ran for Senate out here.

    I was kind of skimming the comments, but this comment here is leading to what I wanted to mention: Granted, I’ve not kept up, but until I saw this (hopefully, authentic) Texas Bar Registration card, I’d have thought that Mrs. Warren had called herself “Native American”, or really, I imagined her checking a box, not filling in a blank with this!

    That DOES take a lot of gall. It’s one thing to check a box – “oh, maybe I screwed up” or even write in “Native American” to make a point “I was born here, so I’m as native as the next guy , err squaw”. However to just write in this directly is something I wouldn’t a good lawyer would do – they usually want to make sure they have plausible deniability.

    In fact, isn’t there a class for 3rd year law students at the Ivie’s called Plausible Deniability?

    One super-fishy thing about Obama’s early days is that his mom Stanley, shortly after giving birth to him wherever at the age of 18, is a student in Seattle, while her parents and “husband” are still back in Hawaii. Only after the “husband” leaves Hawaii does she go back, after about a year and a half in Seattle. It’s almost as though Hawaii was not big enough for both her and her “husband” to live there at the same time. But after the “husband” leaves, then she goes back, probably so that her parents can help take care of baby Barack.

    First of all, this is sort of old news.

    I haven’t followed details of the Fauxahontas story–no desire. But i hadn’t previously seen any proof she’d signed a legal document claiming to be Native.

    The shocking thing about the Warren fiasco: this whole thing wasn’t terminal–granted my opinion– until she released her DNA. It’s not her past lying, but her handling of it, which was terrible.

    Warren should have just apologized in a PC manner:

    “I grew up with the understanding that my great-grandmother was a Native American. And I always took pride in being part Native, a descendant of our brave and resilient Native ancestors who had made America their home down through generations from time immemorial. But despite that pride, i never should have presented myself as a Native America, without being connected to a tribal culture and community. Doing so was a denial of the lived experience of Native communities. And i apologize for doing so.

    “I remain proud of my part of Native ancestry. But i will not present myself as Native American. Rather as i work to improve the lives of Americans generally, i will work specifically with Native American leaders for the betterment of their communities and improving the lives of all Native people.”

    Something to that effect.

    Instead she blundered on with it, releasing DNA showing her to be a fraud. She comes across as stupid, tone-deaf, vain and her attachment to being Native like a dog with a bone.

    Her candidacy, her very presence raises an issue–Affirmative Action and who really should be getting it–that is fraught for the coalition of the fringes, ergo that the Democrats do *not* want to have front and center.

    And she can be dismissed with one quip:
    “We don’t need a white woman who lied to take the place of a person of color, we need to focus on taking on the lies of Donald Trump and providing a better vision for the people of America.”

    Eh, maybe. I don’t think it really matters that much anymore. People are used to divorced and remarried mothers by now.

    The notion of marrying a woman who keeps the name of her first husband would be a bridge too far for me, even if she has kids. Perhaps especially if she has young kids, since you will inevitably be helping her raise them.

    I knew another guy who had the same thing happen to him. His wife kept her first husband’s surname. She had no kids from the first marriage. She finally got around to taking his surname…right around the time she decided to drop out of the labor market and let him support her. That one ended in an ugly divorce, too.

    If a woman doesn’t get (or doesn’t care) how that could make her new husband feel then she’s not worth marrying. Elizabeth Warren’s political beliefs are the kind that have been emasculating (alt-righters would say cucking) men for decades, so it shouldn’t be all that surprising.

    Trump should have called out Nick and then nailed three points:

    — a lazy, incompetent and agenda driven press; they don’t even try to fact check, do not even have the desire to get the story right if it plays to their biases; in fact, they’ll twist stories to make them fit; bonus for calling out appalling reporting on Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown;

    — “hate hoaxes”, the continual flow of these hate hoax lies and the ravenous demand for them; and how they are being used by the Democrats to stoke their base; the most important thing is to repeatedly say “hate hoax”, get the words out there for discussion

    — and the rising tide of insane, barking-mad, ravenous hatred of flyover country white guys; point out the contempt and hatred of the coastal elites for their fellow Americans–their “coastal cocoon of bias, hate and lies”

    I agree entirely with you as regards BO’s obvious status as a US citizen by virtue of his birth. However, what still intrigues me is the desperate lengths to which BO and his supporters have gone in order to obfuscate and hide the details of his birth and prevent any investigation of his full birth record. The newly elected governor of Hawaii, a long-time political ally of BO, announced that one of his first acts as governor would be to obtain and publish BO’s full birth certificate and thus end the “birther” controversy. Several months later, when called on his promise, the governor announced that his administration was having trouble finding BO’s birth records.

    My doctoral research gave me some expertise regarding the US birth registration system as did a stint as an actuarial trainee. The goverbor’s lame excuse raised red flags for me as did BO’s release on the internet of an obviously photo-shopped long birth certificate a few months later. The MSM utterly ignored these events except to argue that the fake long birth certificate proved definitively that “birthers” were deluded conspiracy theorists. Something is fishy here but I doubt that the truth will come out in my lifetime.

In the way of thinking of her campaign (it was stupid, but this is what they were thinking), they would prove that Warren DID have Native American DNA and therefore “Trump is lying.” The first announcements, which the NY Times went along with, had headlines like “DNA tests prove that Warren is Native American” as if 1/1024th was the same thing as 100%. They might have gotten past attacks from the Right, but then she was blindsided from her Left, with Native American pronouncements that being an Indian has nothing to do with DNA.

It is not a partisan occasion on which to score political points (save that for the campaign rallies) but one in which to tell shaggy dog stories.

    But the question–or what should be the question for a patriotic president–is does this move the ball forward for the American people.

    In other words, the President should be moderate when moderation is called for and passionate and political where that is called for.

    The Sandmann thing is not the most important thing on the agenda, but calling out media lying and partisanship is something that would serve both Trump and the nation well. (Honest reporting of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown for instance would have saved a lot of lives.) Likewise calling out the growing hate YT. Trump doesn’t have to go book lenght or devote much time to any of this but they are worth a mention. This stuff would bing his constituents to him and wake up a few more white people and bring them on side. Trump needs that to win. And if he believes his Presidency is doing the right thing by the nation, then the nation needs that as well.

    I think the #1 thing right now–and unavoidably critical for Trump because of the shutdown–is pointing out that people/politicians who do not want a secure border are for Open Borders. It’s definitional now. You can have an unguarded border if there is no significant effort to cross it. Once you have what’s been going on the last 50 years, that’s not tenable. And once you have caravans forming up, it’s an absolutely fraudulent position. It’s partisan but Trump simply must call the Democrats out as OpenBorders loonies to win this thing.

    That’s the bottom line here. Moderate may be great … or not. But the bottom line is “best approach for the future of the American nation”. And these are not moderate times, and Trump’s enemies are not moderate people.

    It is indeed interesting that so many critics of the regime of racial preferences for non-Whites have their dander up about a woman with White ancestry receiving some benefits.

    That DOES take a lot of gall. It’s one thing to check a box – “oh, maybe I screwed up” or even write in “Native American” to make a point “I was born here, so I’m as native as the next guy , err squaw”. However to just write in this directly is something I wouldn’t a good lawyer would do – they usually want to make sure they have plausible deniability.

    It is truthful to state that she has American Indian ancestry. It would be untruthful to claim she has none.

    She would be subversive if she opposed them politically but took advantage of them personally. Instead she is happy to let other whites suffer harm from them while illegitimately claiming them for herself.

    If Warren were a conervative Republican this issue would have been dropped long ago. All she would have to say is that she lied to undermine a system she despises. The Left wouldn’t bring it up because a) voters hate racial preferences, and b) it would show how easy they are to undermine.

    Oh and, for the record, i started undermining them years ago. When we aplied for our last mortgage we claimed to be black and Hispanic. I claim to be Native American at work.

    Yes, if life was fair, science would trump mystical mumbo jumbo and we would call out Indians and tell them that being Indian IS (at least partly) a matter of DNA. But life ain’t fair and now Liz Warren is probably not going to be POTUS because of this. Too bad, so sad.

    Or, maybe karma is a bitch and Warren tempted karma by saying that being 1/1,024th Indian is exactly the same as being fully Indian (“DNA tests prove that Liz Warren is Native American” – those were the headlines put out by the Leftist propaganda machine), which any fair minded person could see is not true .

    They were going to spring this unfair gotcha on Trump:

    But she didn’t end up getting bitten by that. Instead she got sideswiped by the Indian tribes. So the end result was fair even if it came about for the wrong reasons.

    It’s amusing that the leaked copy of the registration card blurs out Warren’s home address, where she undoubtedly hasn’t lived in 30 years, and her date of birth, which is a matter of public record (June 22, 1949).

    Speaking of politicians’ former houses, Trump’s childhood home in Queens is for sale at $2.9 million. That’s probably pretty close to being the market value of a house of that type in its area, in other words there’s not much of a premium.

    Seriously – while I understand the need to go hard for Trump next year, and I intend to of course, we reallyy REALLY need to be grooming successors who can push forward a true conservative agenda without carrying any more goddamned water for Israel. For every lovable mummy with faded number tattoos on his forearm to remind us a big election is coming!, we have 10,000 Rahm Emanuels and Beau Friedlanders salting the earth surrounding white families, so that nothing may once again grow and bloom.

    If all we’ve got to stop them with is one mercurial billionaire, followed by the return of 10,000 Paul Ryans and their corporate donors, beaming magnanimously as Things Return To Normal, then all of this agita of the last three years has just been whistling past the graveyard and off the cliff’s edge. Even David had a frickin’ slingshot, at least!

  140. VladIII says:

    I suspect this will have little impact on Warren’s chances, since there aren’t enough American Indians to swing an election. The Left views Indians more as historical curios validating the evils of the white man than as voting constituents. It may have some impact in the primaries, though, where POC-ascendant hopefuls will use it against her.

    On a related note, it looks like Steve’s proposal to rebrand the Dems as the “black party” is finally starting to take hold–a recent Rolling Stone article states that black women are the “heart of the Democratic Party.” https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/2020-democrat-candidates-771735/

    The choice of the evil former Labor Secretary Robert Reich to pronounce his name with a “sh” sound is utterly inexcusable.

    While I hold no brief for the execrable Mr Reich, not only is it excusable, it is correct. The guttural “CH” sound in German ( like Scottish “loch”) is reserved for ” CH” that follows a,o or u. Other “CH” sounds like Reich are very similar to “sh”.

    Pops split when she was 7, I believe. … Either way, if she “identifies” as Black, that’s enough for the media, and most Dindus are too incurious to investigate.

    Kamala’s father, Donald J. Harris, wrote an article for a Jamaican diaspora website last month titled “Reflections of a Jamaican Father”. (LINK) Donald’s paternal grandmother was a descendant of a plantation and slave owner. Unlike the US, I believe that the coloured (biracial) children of white Jamaican slave owners were free at birth. In 1833, free black and coloureds owned 70,000 of Jamaicans 311,000 slaves. Coloured slave owners born out of wedlock were often left substantial property and slaves by their white fathers. (LINK)

    Donald Harris says that he fought for custody of children but lost in a 1972 California court-ordered divorce settlement. As we all know, it was his ex-wife who left the country with the children.

    I have heard that Kamala Harris’s current memoir does not mention her childhood in Canada, from ages 7 to 18.

    There is a recent picture in Donald’s article of him with his granddaughter Meena and “her aunt Kamala”.

    Many blacks on social media are reacting negatively to Kamala Harris’s bid for the White House and some are telling others to not to vote for her. Their arguments aren’t always the most coherent, but they tend to mention her incarcerating black men under California’s three strikes law during her time as attorney general, her being biracial with no US ancestry (another Obama), and her white husband.

    Family lore regarding ancestry is a reasonable basis for belief in such ancestry. That credibilty only rises when we take into account her Oklahoma origins and her family’s long pedigree in the United States.

    In the final analysis, the family lore was corroborated by a DNA test.

    In this case, the family history is heresay. That’s why Chief Warren took that DNA test – it’s not like she had some grandma or great-grandpa she could trot out or show pictures of. That 0.1% means it goes VERY far back. As to the DNA test, do you not read anything from our host here, Steve Sailer? Ancestry is like a hobby to him.

    Most of us have a number in the fractions of a percent of either Indian, African, or something could get us lots of gimmes. That’s why Sailer has noted a number of times that it’s interesting that white people do not trot out that stuff, but are honest about it in racial categorization, I mean, except for people like Warren, of the nations of the upper Massachusetts. Mr. Sailer compares our situation to Brazil, in which the amount of black ancestry is very well kept track of and used to classify people.

    BTW, let me state two tihngs here:

    1) I have no problem wih an American checking a box for “Native American”. They can come up with new terms if they want, but, if you were born here, you are as native as the next guy.

    2) I have respect for the 20 year-ago Elizabeth Warren who wrote The Two-Income Trap. I’m no lefty. That book describes the “scam” (you might almost call it) of the push of the feminists along with plenty of others (gov’ts for tax collection, etc.) for women to work outside the home. It may has well have been written by Phyllis Schlafley. Warren’s part of the hard-Socialist left now, so making fun of her Indian-heritage lying/stupidity is a good thing.

    Many interesting points in your post but on this point, again, you aren’t making your case. If you have DNA that is American Indian or African, or you have a credible family tree showing such, it isn’t “dishonest” to state you have American Indian or African ancestry. In fact, it would be dishonest to state otherwise.

    You are unwittingly falling prey to efforts to discriminate against anyone with a fraction of White ancestry.

    Warren’s part of the hard-Socialist left now, so making fun of her Indian-heritage lying/stupidity is a good thing.

    I’m not sure what you point is. Are you trying to state a descriptive proposition or a normative one? What does this have to do with Warren?

    Arguably someone with 1/1024 black American slave ancestry and of 1023/1024 white founder stock has a stronger claim to resources and preferences in this country than the offspring of a Kenyan national.

    It seems pretty clear that Warren held herself out as an American Indian for professional advancement when in fact she is not Indian at all. I doubt very much she would have gotten to Harvard as an ordinary white person.
