FLASHBACK: Pocahontas’ Ancestor Corralled Cherokees For Trail of Tears, According to Report

Published

on

The Native American hoax just keep getting worse for Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-Mass.).

According to a 2012 report from Breitbart, Warren’s claimed Native ancestry ties her directly back to a great-great-great grandfather who rounded up Cherokee Indians into a a government-organized stockade called Ross’s Landing in Tennessee, which was where the infamous trail of tears began.

“For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American,” the report said. “When recently asked to provide evidence of her ancestry, she pointed to an unsubstantiated claim on an 1894 Oklahoma Territory marriage license application by her great-great grand uncle William J. Crawford that his mother, O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, was a Cherokee. ”

O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford’s husband, Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was Jonathan Crawford. He was a member of the East Tennessee Mounted Infantry Volunteer Militia led by Brigadier General R. G. Dunlap from late 1835 to late 1836.

“These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in for generations in the three states that the Cherokee Nations had considered their homelands for centuries: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee,” the report said.

More than 4,000 Cherokees waited for months at Ross’s Landing while government officials gathered supplies and armed guards to march the tribe across the country to Oklahoma.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days

There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.

Published

There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.

John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.

In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.

McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
