Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 17, 2017

When she was growing up in Oklahoma in the 1960s, the mother of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) supported the family on a minimum wage job at Sears. "A higher minimum wage saved my family," Warren said. "A low minimum wage today is dragging families who work sometimes three jobs and still can't support a family. That's not right. And it's not on the heads of the families who work; it's on the heads of politicians in Washington who decide that corporate interests are vastly more important than those of working people." Warren has a book out Tuesday, This Fight is Our Fight, about the country's disappearing middle class. "When I grew up in America, the chances that a kid would do better than her parents were better than 90%. Today the chances that a kid is going to do better than her parents are less than a coin toss."

For inspiration you may be surprised to learn Warren looks to our 26th president, a Republican, whose trust-busting policies toward corporate America she thinks reflect her own.

"I'm a huge Teddy Roosevelt fan," she said. "And do you know why? He said, 'We gotta get rid of those giant corporations. We gotta break 'em up.' And the reason for doing that is he said, 'They exercise too much political power. And we can't have that in a democracy.'"

Well Eddie if thats all you got on Liz she must be a great politician.

But tell me Eddie can you fine a link where Liz said she was "full- blooded Indian"? because I cant.

But I did fine this.

"the Herald has some actual substance on the candidate's claims: Warren's great-great-great grandmother on her mother's side was Cherokee, making Warren -- provided the genealogist didn't miss anything -- 1/32 Native American if her great-great-great grandmother was full-blooded (that's unclear). Warren has said that both of her mother's parents had American Indian blood, in which case the fraction would obviously be a little bit bigger. (It's plausible that some of Warren's relatives would have masked their Cherokee heritage, given the legally prescribed second-class citizenship bestowed upon American Indians for much of the 20th century.)

The standards for who counts as an American Indian vary from tribe to tribe, and hinge in part on when you applied. Prior to 1963, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (that is, those who weren't forcibly relocated by the federal government in the 1830s) granted tribal membership to anyone who could prove he was 1/32 Cherokee. Per their site: "All direct lineal descendants of the ancestor listed on the 1924 Baker Roll must have been living on August 14, 1963, possess at least 1/32 degree of Eastern Cherokee blood, [and] have applied for membership prior to August 14, 1963." For those who applied after 1963, the standards went up to 1/16. Bill John Baker, principal chief of the Cherokee Nation -- an umbrella group which includes the Easter Cherokee -- is 1/32 Cherokee, which was the subject of a minor controversy prior to his election, but obviously not a deal-breaker.

In other words, without wading too deeply into ongoing debates within the Native American community, Warren could make a fairly a legitimate claim to the title.

"Helps to go to Harvard first."

She didn't attend Harvard, idiot. She got her BS from the university of Houston and her law degree from Rutgers.

"And to do that, just do what Warren did. Claim you're Native American on your application."

Wrong again: she did not apply as a minority to either school.

"Then do the same when you're angling for one of those coveted faculty positions where you can be paid 400 grand to teach one class."

Another lie. Those involved in hiring for the Harvard position have come out publicly and repeatedly noting that her ancestry was not so much as mentioned in the hiring process, let alone a determining factor. I think I will take their word over your idle speculation.

"Absolutely no doubt that Fauxcahontas Warren"

Your bigotry is showing again.

"She got into indentity politics."

More like was forced into it by bigots like you angling for a "gotcha" moment.

"Nothing pays better than that. Nothing she's qualified for, anyway."

She has been an academic at some of the finest schools in the US and then went on to a fruitful career in public service. Who are you again?

I just have a hard time following the logic of starting a family without the means to support it. I waited until I was 35 and debt-free before starting and I knew I could only support one child . . .

#27 | Posted by Gr8Music at 2017-04-18 07:49 AM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

The vast majority of children throughout human history have been born without the ability to support them. The median individual income in the USA is $32,000. The cost of raising a child to age 18 according to Money magazine is $233,600 or about $13,000/year. That means a person making median income with one child has to spend over 40% of their income on the child.

The problem is not poor people having kids. The problem is low wages that keep people too poor to raise the kids THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE REGARDLESS OF INCOME

It's called sarcasm.

Her claimed "heritage" is one of the more common myths in America. It is particularly common in the Southern states where the Cherokee nation was. It's highly, highly unlikely her claim is accurate. It's a really racist, yet pervasive myth created to assuage the White Man's guilt through ethnic appropriation. There is no good reason to take this claim seriously without supporting evidence. Almost 900,000 people make this claim, with a +100,000 swing in just a decade. It does not matter who makes it, what their political beliefs are, or even why they are making the claim, it's incredibly unlikely to be true.

As for this case, I recognize that there is some nuance here.

I haven't seen or heard Elizabeth Warren say or do anything that merits the hatred from the right other than having a (D) after her name.

I guess wanting to protect consumers from predatory lenders makes her an evil anti-capitalist. I have yet to hear anyone present a cogent argument showing that the republicans have any policies on the table that will help anyone who isn't already independently wealthy

It is rich hearing rightists complain about a professor' salary given how little they care about the salaries of, say, corporate executives. Also, those who gripe about the salary being paid "for only teaching one class" clearly have no clue how Academe works. Here's a hint: academics don't just teach classes.

It's a common myth spread by white people, but the underlying reason for it is incredibly racist.

My grandmother liked to talk with pride about having a Cherokee ancestor. We never were shown any proof. According to Sitzkrieg, the first time I heard that I should've punched her in the mouth.

I'd go with the tomahawk chop.

DIRK deflection at it's best.

One more thing WHODAMAN...In the 18 years that I have been doing my job with the state of Louisiana, I have not gotten a raise for the last 9 consecutive years. What I do is very fulfilling despite the fact that I could make more money in the private sector.

"DIRK deflection at it's best."

Looks like someone doesn't like getting called out on his hypocrisy... poor soul.

Way to ignore the rest of the post, by the way.

So, then, you're just envious of someone who got better compensated than you. Like you said, you made a choice. So did she. She just got paid more for hers. She is well known in her profession. "Warren was a highly influential law professor. Although she published in many fields, her expertise was in bankruptcy and commercial law. In that field only Bob Scott of Columbia and Alan Schwartz of Yale had citation rates higher than that of Warren" en.wikipedia.org Are you nationally recognized in your field?
