Rush Limbaugh fielded a call Monday from a woman named Susan who is one-sixteenth Cherokee, and who eloquently explained why Elizabeth Warren is not a Cherokee. (READ: Cherokee Nation Officially Rejects Warren: ‘Dishonoring Tribal Governments’).
Warren made a video with a Stanford genome researcher to promote a DNA test that stated it is possible that Warren might have a very small fraction of Cherokee ancestry — much smaller than is required for tribal membership, and a bit more than half of what the normal white American possesses according to the New York Times.
Here is the Rush Limbaugh transcript of Rush’s enlightening phone call with a 1/16
RUSH: Spring, Texas. This is Susan. It’s great to have you with us.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I am a transplanted Texan. I’m Sooner born, Sooner bred, and when I die, I’m Sooner dead. My great-great grandmother was a full blood Cherokee, and I’m calling via Barbra Streisand —
RUSH: Wait, wait. When you say you are Sooner born and bred, you are from Oklahoma?
RUSH: I just — but you say Sooner born and bred, people in Rio Linda think you’re saying that you’d just as soon be born than dead.
CALLER: No. I am a proud Oklahoman, and I love Texas, too, but my beginning was in Oklahoma. Fauxcahontas says her great-great grandmother was a Cherokee? Well, so was mine. We have, you know, family history, but I’m one-sixteenth Cherokee.
RUSH: Let me ask you a question. You’re one-sixteenth; so you are considered…? That’s a lot. You’re considered —
CALLER: That’s a lot.
RUSH: You’re considered Cherokee; right? So she is…? Her great-great-great… Three times. Great-great-great-grandmother, and she’s 1/1,024th, is she enough to become a Cherokee, to —
CALLER: No! I’m not —
RUSH: — become a member of the tribe?
CALLER: No. And this is the deal, Rush. My grandfather was one quarter. It was his grandmother. My mother was one-eighth. I am one-sixteenth. But if you are not on the Cherokee rolls, then the only tribe in Oklahoma that doesn’t do then. If you don’t… If you’re not on the rolls, and it was shameful.
RUSH: So what do you think she’s doing? What’s she doing with this, Susan?
CALLER: It’s Barbra Streisand, Rush. I’m a 16th. I’m 64 years old almost, in a few weeks. If she were… But it doesn’t matter if your mother or your grandmother or great-grandmother didn’t… The Cherokee are the only tribe in Oklahoma; you had to sign the rolls. And it was shameful for an Indian woman to marry a white man, and they wouldn’t sign up. It was shameful.
RUSH: What about the high cheekbones business? Is that —
CALLER: That’s baloney! I am one-sixteenth, Rush, and I can’t be a Cherokee, and I didn’t want enough their benefits. I was just kind of proud of it. But if your name is not on the roll, you are not a Cherokee —
RUSH: Well, it just goes to show… I mean, here you are one-sixteenth and you’re not eligible, is what you’re saying, if I’m hearing you right. She’s one of 1/1,024th. It’s all about the identity politics with those people. She wants that to say something significant about her. What would that be? I mean, it’s all silly, and these people denying that she used this for employment. I think that’s the sole reason she did it, to be able to demonstrate she had some minority blood to qualify her to be hired at Harvard.
Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski
Talk about an upgrade.
Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.
Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.
“If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.
She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)
“I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.
Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’d doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
