Talk about a major backfire!
In case you haven’t been following this story, President Trump challenged Sen. Elizabeth Warren (a/k/a Pocahontas) to take a DNA test to prove she actually has any Cherokee Indian blood.
After months of dodging Trump, Warren submitted her DNA to an odd “DNA analysis” prepared by Carlos Bustamante, a professor of genetics at Stanford.
Here’s why the whole topic is actually very important – because Warren has repeatedly claimed to be of Indian heritage, allegedly receiving great benefits in exchange for the status.
As Breitbart notes:
Warren changed her ethnicity from “white” to “Native American” both at University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard Law School, where she had tenure starting in 1995.
To many fair minded Americans, that is a big deal.
So what percentage Native American would you have to be to claim “Native American” as your ethnicity?
You might think 50%!
Or maybe a smaller number like 25% or 10%.
What about 1%? That seems kind of ridiculous, doesn’t it? 1% Native America, 99% White, means you’re “White” for all racial purposes, doesn’t it?
Well, how about .0009766%?
No, that’s not a typo. That’s 1/1,024, which is the number shown in the new Warren DNA analysis!
Are you kidding me?
Here is the stunning breakdown from Breitbart, confirming that these stats totally DISQUALIFY Warren for membership in any Cherokee Tribe:
On Monday, Warren claimed she is vindicated after she released the findings of a DNA test which claims she is at the most 1/64th Native American and at the least, 1/1,024.
The DNA findings, regardless of their legitimacy, do not make her eligible for Cherokee Nation citizenship. Nor does the DNA test make Warren eligible to join the Eastern Band of the Cherokee or the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee.
For Warren to apply for Cherokee Nation citizenship, she would have to provide documentation proving she has a direct ancestor listed on the Dawes Rolls of the tribe. To this day, Warren has not provided any documentation that would make her eligible for Cherokee Nation citizenship.
In order for Warren to be recognized as Cherokee by the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, she would have to be at least 1/16 Cherokee — which she is not — and would have to provide documentation showing she is a direct descendant of someone listed on the tribe’s rolls.
To join the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee, Warren would have to be 1/4 Keetoowah Cherokee — which she is not — and have a direct ancestor on the Dawes Rolls.
As Breitbart News noted, Warren is actually less Native American than many white, Hispanic and black Americans. Experts with 23andMe say the average black American is nearly one percent Native American, while the average Hispanic American is 18 percent Native American. Additionally, about eight percent of white Americans in Louisiana, for example, are at least one percent Native American.
In 2012, The Atlantic provided a full breakdown of what it would take for Warren to be eligible to join any of the three federally-recognized Cherokee tribes.
Totally classic….your own test only proves you don’t qualify for any tribe!
You couldn’t write a script better than that!
