Elizabeth Warren claimed her parents had to elope because of her grandparent’s concerns over her mother’s supposed Native American ancestry while running for Senate in 2010.
Watch her account of the dramatic, yet ultimately dubious and self-serving story here, while speaking on a Massachusetts TV channel:
“My father’s parents said absolutely not… you can’t marry her because she’s part Cherokee and part Delaware. After fighting as long as they could my parents went off, they eloped… It was an issue in my family the whole time I grew up.”
Warren has made elaborate claims of Native American ancestry for years, claiming to be as such in law school applications and other professional documents when she potentially stood to benefit from such an ethnic identity.
Her critics doubted the veracity of such claims, and were largely vindicated when Warren released a DNA test that indicated she had 1/1024 Native American ancestry. Warren apparently initially believed that such a minuscule relation to Native American people was enough to identify as one, a misconception that was corrected when the official Cherokee Nation Secretary of State, Chuck Hoskins Jr, released a statement rebuking her use of Native American identity as a political prop.
In order for Warren’s story about her parent’s marriage to be true, exaggeration about her supposed Native American ancestry would have have to been a tradition practiced on her mother’s side of the family for generation. It’s perhaps more likely that the story of a forbidden marriage was simply exaggerated or just simply made up.
It’s possible that hundreds of millions of Americans have Native American ancestors, but American Indian organizations such as the Cherokee Nation frown upon the notion of reducing Native American identity to mere DNA tests, which generally don’t specify between American Indians and all indigenous peoples of the Americas.
President Donald Trump Pledges to Nominate A Woman as Next Supreme Court Justice
It’s going to be a woman.
President Trump revealed that he plans to nominate a woman as his next Supreme Court nominee during a rally on Saturday in North Carolina. The nominee, if confirmed, would replace longtime progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who passed away on Friday.
Reports indicate that President Trump plans to announce the identity of a SCOTUS nominee on either Monday or Tuesday. He suggested as such during his North Carolina rally, confirming that the nominee would be a woman. The crowd could be heard chanting “fill that seat,” indicative of the strong desire among conservatives for President Trump to exercise his constitutional duties and advance a nominee.

It will be a woman!"

Amy Coney Barrett and Barbara Lagoa are considered to be strong candidates to fill the nomination, with the former almost being picked in 2018 to fill the vacancy ultimately filled by Brett Kavanaugh. Barrett is reportedly considered a front-runner in the selection process.
President Trump also cited the constitutional basis for nominating a Supreme Court justice, pointing out that Article 2 of the Constitution placed the imperative upon him as President to do as such. Republicans control both the White House and the Senate, a crucial difference from the divided government of 2016 when President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland was blocked by the Senate.

Democrats are guaranteed to fight furiously to block the confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee advanced by President Trump, with Chuck Schumer himself saying that he wouldn’t accept the possibility of any new justices while Trump is in office, even if it’s during his second term.
Tentative confirmation proceedings, which will occur in the midst of the Presidential election, have the chance to make Brett Kavanaugh’s wild confirmation process look like a gingerly walk in the park.
