Elizabeth Warren had a prime time speaking spot last night at the DNC never mind that she has baldly, publicly and on official documents lied about her Cherokee heritage. She is responsible for the formation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which JudicialWatch has audited and found a massive abuse of taxpayer monies. Karen Geronimo, a resident of North Carolina is calling for Warren’s DNA. Mrs. Geronimo is married to Chief Geronimo’s great grandson. Her husband was reportedly wearing a “Native Americans for Obama” button, so maybe it really doesn’t matter, because Warren is an Obama star. Who remembers that it was a Democrat President and a democratically-controlled House and Senate that moved Native Americans to areas they did not want to inhabit. Maybe they also don’t care that Warren’s CFPB is just one more scam to provide high paying jobs for government regulators at the expense of taxpayers. See a video below of Native Americans speaking out about Warren.
Congresswoman Ann Marie Burkle (R-NY) testified in Congressional hearings, that CFPB starting salaries exceed the Office of Budget and Management by up to 90 percent. Judicial Watch found that “a dozen new hires take home more than $225,000 a year,” and a student intern was paid $51,620.
This is all drearily familiar, coming from a big federal agency, but it’s especially galling because the CFPB exists in a weird interstellar legal space, far from the light of the Constitution. It’s funded by the Federal Reserve, not Congress. Its top official, Richard Cordray, was installed in a extra-Constitutional assertion of power by President Obama, who claimed the novel power to declare which hours of any given day Congress was, or was not, formally in session. Few believe Cordray would have survived proper congressional confirmation, and he’s actually an improvement over the hyper-radical interim director: Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, who claims to have created the “intellectual foundation” of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Warren was born in Oklahoma City, had claimed to qualify as a Cherokee Indian which she hasn’t proven, and made a nice fortune out of flipping houses in her home state. According to the Boston Herald, Warren had about one dozen real estate deals in Oklahoma. She bought one home in Oklahoma City for $30,000 and sold it quickly for $145,000. She allegedly gave high interest loans to her own family (presumably also not Cherokees) and gobbled up homes at foreclosure prices after bashing predatory lending. After her party solely fought for, and repeatedly pushed and demanded, subprime mortgages, causing many, many Americans to lose all the value in their homes – their greatest source of wealth – she bought up a few casualties in the foreclosed homes market and sold them at handsome profits.
Flipping homes was a profitable investment for the Warren family, which made as much as 383 percent on a five-month transaction. The average gain seems to have been closer to 40 percent. There was nothing illegal about the practice, but it was singled out by progressives connected to the Obama administration as one of the irresponsible practices that led directly to the financial crisis.

The short story of the CFPB is that Warren served as the mean ‘ole’ bank for her family, the same methods that Democrats have demonized ad-nauseum. Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit challenging Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray as the Director of the CFPB.
Consternation roils that Warren may have used a claim to Indian bloodlines to enhance her entry into Harvard:
The controversy began last month after a 1996 article from the Harvard Crimson surfaced in which Warren was referred to as a minority faculty member by a spokesman for Harvard Law School. Warren had previously said that she did not know Harvard had touted her as such.
Warren has received a great deal of criticism since the story first emerged, in large part because no documentation has been found to back up Warren’s claim that she is indeed of Native American ancestry. Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was referenced as Cherokee Indian on her son William Crawford’s 1894 marriage license application, a 2006 family newsletter showed. The document itself was not an actual marriage license, and it has not been located, according to genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Source: ABC News
Here’s more background:
EARLY IN HER CAREER, WARREN TOLD SCHOOLS AND EMPLOYERS SHE WAS WHITE.
Early In Her Career, Warren Listed Herself As White In Documents Released By Rutgers, The University Of Houston And The University Of Texas. “A portion of her transcript from George Washington University, where she began her undergraduate education on a debate scholarship, did not include a minority status, nor did an application to the University of Houston, which she attended after a transfer, according to records obtained by the Globe.”
“A section of Warren’s 1973 application to Rutgers, where she went to law school was more direct. That document specifically asks: ‘Are you interested in applying for admission under the Program for Minority Group Students?’ Warren answered ‘no.’”
“In addition, a newly unearthed University of Texas personnel document shows that Warren listed herself as “white’’ when she taught at the law school there on and off from 1981 to 1991.” (Noah Bierman, “Records shed light on Elizabeth Warren’s minority status,” Boston Globe, 5/10/12)
ONCE SHE STARTED EYEING A JUMP TO IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS SEEKING MORE MINORITY REPRESENTATION ON CAMPUS, WARREN SUDDENLY STARTED LISTING HERSELF AS A MINORITY IN FACULTY RECRUITMENT DIRECTORIES. Source:
Democrat President Andrew Jackson overrode the existing plan to have Native Americans stay in their native homeland areas. Jackson, as a U.S. Army General had worked to militarily remove the Creeks from Georgia and as President continued that quest, and so the Indian Removal Act came into being. Many Cherokees and members of other tribes were forced into Oklahoma and Arkansas. In those days, both Chambers of Congress were controlled by the Jacksonian Party, meaning followers of Andrew Jackson – Democrats. Abraham Lincoln opposed the Indian Removal Act, many Christians opposed it. Still, the greatest numbers of Native Americans are Democrats. It boggles the mind.
Elizabeth Warren is running for the Massachusetts Senate seat now held by Republican Scott Brown. I urge you to vote for Brown, who only claims to be an American. Maybe in Massachusetts, being American is something considered to be abhorrent? Pick your topic and read much more about Elizabeth Warren here. Read more at Legal Insurrection.
