Pocahontas descendent on Trump’s taunt of Sen. Warren: ‘We are not offended at all’

Published

on

A direct descendent of Pocahontas told Big League Politics he approved of President Donald J. Trump using the name of his Indian princess ancestor at Tuesday’s White House event honoring Navajo code talkers.

“Pocahontas is a gift to all Americans,” said Joe Webb, a popular online political commentator.

“We are not offended at all,” he said. “She was an American, and we are proud that her name is being highlighted again,” he said.

Trump rebooted a controversy from her 2012 campaign stirred a controversy when he brought up the name of Pocahontas as a jab at Sen. Elizabeth A. Warren (D.-Mass.), who claimed early in her career that she was part Cherokee, in order to apply for affirmative action preference.

Webb told Big League Politics his family was full of Trump supporters. “As a direct-descendent of Pocahontas, I think it’s hilarious that Donald Trump busted Warren for hijacking an Indian heritage that she used to procure grants and special privileges.”

“If Trump uses the name of the Virginia Indian princess to out the duplicity of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, so be it – it only means that the story and ensuing legend of Pocahontas lives on.”

Watch here as Warren told MSNBC that Trump was racist for calling her “Pocahontas.”

Webb said direct descendents of Pocahontas do not share that belief, they feel pride.

A new book due out in time for Christmas tells the story of Webb’s familial lines, which include both Pocahontas and President George Washington.

“Tobacco entrepreneur John Rolfe was married to Pocahontas,” he said. “He was my 11th great-grandfather and the industry that he forged was later to bring a tobacco merchant from England to the New World. His name: John Washington, great-grandfather to George,” wrote Webb on a Facebook post.

Mary Shawn Russell, Webb’s sister, wrote the Washington’s Bloodlines: The long lost branch of the Washington family tree, he said. The book reveals after a lengthy investigation and research the lineage between Pocahontas and America’s first president.

“Our 11th great-grandparents were tough people and would be proud of President Trump,” said Russell, a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

Published

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
