President Donald Trump made a promise. Not a campaign promise, but a promise nonetheless. He said that if Fauxcohontas took a DNA test and proved she was an American Indian that he would make a million dollar donation to the charity of her choice.
Well, the test results are in and Elizabeth Warren is 1/1024th some derivation of American Indian. She thought she’d hit some political pay dirt by trying to out-Trump Trump. Bad, Elizabeth. Very bad. Even her political allies are distancing themselves from her. Probably some newly cogitated Indianophobia or something.
But the President should pay. Make it a big to-do, which is nothing new for the President. He should also get one of those huge checks that lottery winners get.
By my calculation it should be for $976.56, which is $1,000,000 ÷ 1024.
I went to the doctor today. Had to fill out a bunch of forms. One of the questions was “Ethnicity” and they gave me a couple of dozen choices. I asked the nurse if I was 1/1024 American Indian could I check that box. She glared at me knowingly and said, “No.”
Guess I’m not getting into Harvard.
Turns out, the gal we all know as Fauxcohontas is overwhelmingly European. But she does have an ancestor (as in a single one) ancestor somewhere way back in the woodpile that had Indian blood. Rumor has it that it is from the mercifully extinct Whineywoopus tribe.
The Boston Globe reports:
Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides “strong evidence’’ she had a Native American in her family tree dating back 6 to 10 generations, an unprecedented move by one of the top possible contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.
The analysis of Warren’s DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis. He concluded that “the vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European, but he added that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”
All of this, of course, begs the real question: Dot or Feather? You decide.
Kavanaugh comes clean about his high school and college years……I think a scoundrel like this should never hold office. And if he gets there anyway, he should be impeached. And then tarred and feathered. And then his life ruined.
“I spent the last two years of high school in a daze, locking away the questions that life seemed insistent on imposing. I kept playing basketball, attended classes sparingly, drank beer heavily, and tried drugs enthusiastically. I discovered that it didn’t make any difference if you smoked reefer in the white class mates sparkling new van, or in the dorm room with some brother you’d met down at the gym, or on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids who had dropped out of school and now spent most of their time looking for an excuse to brawl.”
Just kidding….That’s from BH Obama’s Dreams from My Father 1995 memoir describing HIS high school and college days.
Double standard anyone? Anyone?

If there’s anything better than winning. It’s winning and gloating.
I don’t look to Rap musicians to help me inform my political views any more than I have my daughters consider their wives as models of Christian purity. I don’t even like to use those two words in the same sentence. “Rap” and “musician” are oxymoronic. Kind of like “CNN” and “news.”
But I really can’t stand blatant, shameless hypocrisy, like when Hilary Clinton calls for civility in politics for example.
Back when Kanye West was proclaiming that George Bush hated black people because of the President’s response to hurricane victims, the left thought he was a great political sage, a brilliant artist.
But when a black man goes off the liberal plantation, he’s obviously mentally ill. On a recent edition of The Wrap hosted by Don “Fruity Pebbles” Lemon, one commentator described Kanye West as an example of what happens when “Negroes can’t read.” They become “token Negroes” whose only real worth is a photo opp for President Trump. And, according to the panel (and official CNN policy) anyone who tends to support President Trump has mental health issues.
With this collected expertise, CNN is like watching Dr. Phil 24/7.
Then token female,Tara Setmeyer, gets all uppity:
“He’s an attention whore, like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration. This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues. He’s already been hospitalized,” she continued. “Not to trivialize mental health issues, [but] obviously Kanye has taken a turn in a very strange way.”
Gee, Tara, which variety of whore are you?
Can you imagine the backlash if a panel of white guys on Fox News uttered this kind of stuff about, say, President Obama and some goofy policy he advocated! I know, target rich environment, right?
When libs talk about tolerance, or free speech, or civil exchange of ideas, or whatever the phrase of the day is, all they really mean is that you’re free to agree with them. Otherwise you’re mentally ill.
Hypocrites. Damned hypocrites.
I just can’t help but wonder if Don Lemon ever tires of being CNN’s token Negro.
THE ASIA BIBI STORY
When Asia Bibi defended herself for drinking out of a cup on a hot summer’s day back in June 2009, little did she know the price she and her family would pay for her courage in defending her Catholic faith – a suffering that continues to this day.
Read the story here. Then pray.
We all remember when Archbishop Vigano issued a statement calling our Pope Francis for his complicity in, among other things, the Cardinal McCarrick scandal. When Pope Francis was cornered by the media for a response to the Vigano charges, he memorably responded, “I will not say a word about this.” It was the Argentinian version of My Imitation of Christ.
Enter Cardinal Marc Ouellett, prefect of the Congregation for bishops, in an open letter to Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, has released a detailed and devastating response to former nuncio’s accusations against Pope Francis regarding the case of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, charging him with “blasphemy” for calling into question the faith of the pope and calling on him to repent. Ouellett said that he is writing with the “necessary permission” of Pope Francis.
As an aside to Cardinal Ouellett, I believe blasphemy is reserved for speaking improperly of God, not another person. But I’ll let someone else write that post.
Cardinal Ouellett’s letter was released by the Vatican in the original French, accompanied by an Italian translation, around 10:30 on Sunday morning (Rome time), Oct. 7. In addition, Ouellett’s letter was published by America magazine, which is controlled by the Jesuits. Getting your perspective on Pope Francis from America is a little like forming your opinion of Vladimir Putin by reading Pravda.
In any event, I wasn’t so much thinking of the source of the article but yet another example of the duplicity of the Argentinian. It was he who said in response to Vigano’s disclosures “I will not say a word.” Now, Ouellet with “permissions” goes on the attack. If anything, the Jesuit mouthpiece America only underscores that point.
This has been a pope who loves to promote a lack of clarity, who thrives on creating confusion, who relishes the double meaning of phrases. The only thing he won’t do is to clarify.
Now, all of the sudden like, (and contrary to his own word), he uses others to do what he promised not to do.
Alas, my worst fears have been confirmed. Pope Francis is a Democrat.
WASHINGTON, DC, September 28, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – Disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who was credibly accused of sexually abusing a teenager, has been moved from Washington, D.C. the former seat of his cardinalate, to a friary in Kansas, right next door to elementary and high schools.
In a statement issued this morning, the Archdiocese of Washington gave details of the move:
In late July 2018, our Holy Father Pope Francis requested that Archbishop Theodore McCarrick withdraw from all public ministry and events. To that end, Archbishop McCarrick now resides at St. Fidelis Friary in Victoria, Kansas in the Diocese of Salina, with the permission of the Provincial Superior of the Franciscan Capuchin Community responsible for the Friary, Fr. Christopher Popravak, O.F.M.Cap., and the Bishop of Salina, Most Reverend Gerald Vincke.
Does anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that Cardinal Weurl bought McCarrick binoculars as a going away present?
