Default Warren: No to White House bid, DNA test; says heritage 'part of who I am'

Miss Tomahawk won't run for POTUS in 2020. She also won't submit to DNA testing to prove she's part Tomahawk.

Warren isn't runnin' for POTUS because she knows the lies she's told 'bout her heritage are too much to overcome.

Warren: No to White House bid, DNA test; says heritage 'part of who I am'

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Sunday ruled out a 2020 presidential run and taking a DNA test to prove Native American ancestry -- an issue that has nagged her Senate campaigns and would almost certainly create problems in a White House bid.

“I’m not running for president,” Warren, a champion of the Democratic Party’s progressive wing, told “Fox News Sunday.”

When asked Sunday whether she’d agree to calls for genetic testing to resolve the heritage controversy, Warren launched into a family history, as purportedly told by her parents and grandparents, before saying, “It’s a part of who I am, and no one’s ever going to take that away.”

Warren, who is seeking a second Senate term this year, has been accused of saying she is of Native American heritage to help in securing jobs, including one as a Harvard law professor.

She has acknowledged identifying as a minority, but denies using such status to help advance her career.

President Trump has repeatedly called Warren, a Wall Street critic and potential White House rival, “Pocahontas,” a notable American Indian woman in colonial history, to highlight the controversy.

“Let me tell you a little bit about my family,” Warren said Sunday. “My mom and dad were born and raised out in Oklahoma, and my daddy was in his teens when he fell in love with my mother.

“She was a beautiful girl who played the piano. And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. And his family was bitterly opposed to that because she was part Native American.

“And eventually my parents eloped and they survived the Great Depression, they survived The Dust Bowl. They went through a lot of hard times. They raised three boys, my older brothers, all of whom went off to the military.

"They raised me. They knocked around and it was tough but they hung together. They hung together for 63 years. I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers.”

She won't take a DNA test because she knows it won't support her claims.

So she is afraid that the DNA test will prove that she is a liar. A DNA test would once and for all silence all her critics. She could easily submit her DNA to multiple DNA test companies in order to prove accuracy and make sure no one is fudging the results. I think one of those companies even has a tv show with celebrities who get their DNA tested.

She could always hide behind the stats which indicate that some of the test, if not all, are invalid.

So they may prove nothing at all.
I have public records going back generations. But then someone could have lied about paternity on the Birth certificates of my ancestors.


That said. I'm gonna repeat my belief that it should not matter. period.

No special accommodations, or profiled segregations for blacks, Jews, Muslims or native Americans. Either way is RACIST.
Any affirmative (or negative) action program that does so is, by definition, systematic RACISM!

Options.
1. maybe she made the whole thing up , her heritage her parenets story all of it.
Somehow i doubt that.
2. maybe her parents beleived it and the the community believed it but maybe it wasn't true and that part of family and community were just bigots.
That's possible
3. maybe she is "part native American" 4 times removed but can't prove it and literally doesn't want a DNA test to upset her vision of her heritage.
that's possible too.

at this point no one can say or is saying definitely.
But everyone wants to use it for political reasons PRO or CON.

Seems to me a small issue.
Hillary said she was named after "Sir Edmond Hillary" and that "ALL her grandparent immigrated to America" that she was caught in "sniper fire" etc etc. etc etc etc
those KNOWN lies didn't slow her down.

I think the Fact that Warren didn't do Sqawt for the Native Americans getting beat down for protesting the pipeline in N Dakota just after she bragged on her Native heritage is worse politically than the possible falsehood of the claim itself.

I'm guessing that Liz Warren has already taken a DNA test and already learned that she has no Native American ancestry.

“It’s a part of who I am, and no one’s ever going to take that away.”

If it's true, it can't be taken away.
If it can be taken away, it must be false.
If she fears that it can be taken away, she must know or think it is false.

Having done a fair amount of genealogy research on my family, I can tell you public records aren't always accurate, and the information that makes it to the internet via things like Ancestry.com, LDS sites and RootsWeb can be even further from the truth, and propagated by those who take it as truth and republish it.

As others have said, chances are she won't take a DNA test because she already knows the statement was false. We all would like to believe there is something 'special' about our selves, but making a public statement puts it out there like a dart board.
