    Cherokee genealogist on Warren: “These are the people she stepped on”

    Cherokee genealogist on Warren: “These are the people she stepped on”

    Today, Megyn Kelly of FOX News interviewed Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes about Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Cherokee heritage.

    Legal Insurrection has been breaking news on Warren’s false claims, including extensive coverage of the genealogical records.

    In the interview with Kelly, Barnes says, “there’s nothing to indicate she’s Cherokee. Her family is found nowhere among Cherokee records.”

    Kelly then questioned Barnes about Warren’s claims about the “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook and Warren’s “high cheek bone” claims.

    Barnes: “It’s just a story. And, honestly, I have never walked by any picture of any of my ancestors that are Indian and said, ‘they have high cheekbones. It’s just not something we say. That comment, I’m just shocked.'”

    Kelly then asked, “Do you view her as a fraud, and do you view this as significant?”

    In response, Barnes said, “I think this is a real issue, becuase we have issues in Indian country…and conditions sometimes that are worse than third world country living conditions….yet she thinks she can pretend to be an Indian and benefit from that and she has no clue these issues even exist. So it is important to talk about this. Because these are the people that she’s stepped on to get where she is today.”

    Barnes also called for the release of any documents used for her hiring.

    I’m trying to sell a modern reincarnation of an old game show to the networks where panelists try to determine the fantasy fractional composite of the guest’s racial/ethnic makeup called, “What’s My Lyin’?”

    Elizabeth Warren and “Born in Kenya” literary sensation Barry Obama are slated to be the first guests.

    Meanwhile, NationalReview has had to publish a retraction of its earlier claim that Warren had plagiarized from someone else’s book. Turns out it was the other way around. Maybe they could take some of the money they used to give Derbyshire and hire an editor or fact-checker or something.

    Sadly for them (and their legal department), Drudge is still featuring their original accusation.

    Warren is despicable but Barnes’ comments are inane. Warren stepped on people living in third world conditions when she obtained her faculty positions? Really? If she stepped on anyone, it was non-Indians who were equally or more qualified for the positions she was given.

      This is an indictment of the entire “Affirmative Action” culture, not to mention the federal programs.

      This country needs a national “Evens Stevens ACT” to declare an end to the past blood feuds, atrocities, and every other slight all the way down to grade school bullying that occurred prior to the end of the VietNam conflict.

      Anyone bringing up these issues after invocation of the law, will be publicly flogged with 10 lashes and left in wooden stocks for a week.

    Kelly and Barnes ate Lizzie’s pow wow chow lunch. Lizzie is toast. And not the kind that you eat.
