For years, Elizabeth Warren claimed to be descendent of the Cherokee Indian tribe, and used her alleged Indian heritage for financial gain, in college, and into the American political stage! Then last year, Warren’s blood proved that she had less Indian in her than almost every American citizen, leaving her and the Mainstream Media speechless!
Now on Thursday, new evidence has arisen that demonstrated that Senator and 2020 Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has actual heritage
Breitbart News reported that…
Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in Major William Lauderdale’s Battalion of Tennessee Volunteer Militia from November 1837 to May 1838, a six month time period during which it fought two battles in Florida against the Seminoles.
Today, there are two federally recognized Native American Seminole tribes, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which has 4,000 enrolled members, and the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, which has more than 18,000 enrolled members.
Lauderdale’s battalion fought against the Seminoles at the Battle of Loxahatchie River, in present day Jupiter, Florida, on January 24, 1838. Then on March 22, 1838 they fought against the Seminoles again at the Battle of Pine Island, in present day Fort Lauderdale.
Breitbart News previously detailed, generation by generation, how Sen. Warren is a direct descendant of Jonathan Crawford, the “Indian fighter,” who fought under Lauderdale!
Also, The Daily Press also reported that…
Like other Virginians of his day, Lauderdale developed into an Indian fighter. In 1803 he marched as a Tennessee volunteer to the Louisiana Territory to fight for the United States against the Spanish and the Indians. In the War of 1812 he served under Gen. Jackson and fought against the Indian allies of the British in what are now Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. . .
Warren’s ancestor not only fought against and killed American Indians, but he volunteered to join Lauderdale in doing so! In fact, in 1988, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported…
Lauderdale arrived on March 5  and began to build a military post, named Fort Lauderdale, on the banks of New River at Southwest Ninth Avenue.J
The city of Fort Lauderdale, named after the fort, was founded 57 years later in 1895. Forts in those days were named after the commanding officer of the men who built them
On March 22, 1838, Lauderdale and 600 men participated in a skirmish of the Second Seminole War on Pine Island. They drove 50 to 100 Indian warriors and their women and children off the island. The soldiers had pushed and pulled their boats through 15 miles of the shallow Everglades and arrived at the settlement exhausted, according to Fort Lauderdale historian Cooper Kirk, who has written a biography of Lauderdale. . .
Kirk says after the Seminole wars there were only 299 Indians left in Florida. Before the wars he says there were not a great number, only 4,500 to 4,800. About 4,000 Seminoles were taken to settlements in Oklahoma. Today, 1,700 Seminoles reside in Florida.
Breitbart also noted that…
Evidence supporting Jonathan Crawford’s service under Lauderdale in Florida was brought by his widow, Neoma O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford, also known as Neona Crawford, to the Bledsoe County Commission of Bledsoe County, Tennessee in 1850 and 1851, when she applied for a pension from the U.S. government for her husband’s service during the 1837-1838 Second Seminole War.
Breitbart notates the account by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, in which they describe the Second Seminole War, in which Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandfather battled the Indians…
Through the Treaty of Moultrie Creek (1823), the Treaty of Payne’s Landing (1832), and numerous “talks” and meetings, US Indian Agents sought to convince the Florida Indians to sell their cattle and pigs to the US government, return runaway slaves to their “rightful owners,” leave their ancient homelands in Florida, and move west of the Mississippi River to Arkansas Territory. In 1830, soon after Jackson the Indian fighter became Andrew Jackson, the president of the United States, he pushed through Congress an Indian Removal Act. With this Act, the determination of the government to move Indians out of the Southeast and open the land for white settlement became the official policy of the US, and the willingness of the government to spend monies in support of military enforcement of this policy increased.
The clash that inevitably resulted from this policy finally began in 1835, and the seven years that it lasted frame the last, the greatest, and arguably the most tragic years in the history of US-Indian relations east of the Mississippi River. Known to history as the Second Seminole War, the US government committed almost $40,000,000 to the forced removal of slightly more than 3,000 Maskókî men, women, and children from Florida to Oklahoma. This was the only Indian war in US history in which not only the US army but also the US navy and marine corps participated. Together with the desultory Third Seminole War, a series of skirmishes that took place between 1856 and 1858, the United States spent much of the first half of the 19th century in trying, unsuccessfully, to dislodge about 5,000 Seminoles from Florida.
Unlike the “Trail of Tears” that took place in a single, dreadful moment, in 1838, in which several thousand Cherokee people were sent on a death march to the West, the removals of the Seminole people from Florida began earlier and lasted 20 years longer. Just like that other event, however, the toll in human suffering was profound and the stain on the honor of a great nation, the United States, can never be erased. The Seminole people – men, women, and children, were hunted with bloodhounds, rounded up like cattle, and forced onto ships that carried them to New Orleans and up the Mississippi. Together with several hundred of the African ex-slaves who had fought with them, they were then sent overland to Fort Gibson (Arkansas), and on to strange and inhospitable new lands where they were attacked by other tribes, in a fierce competition for the scarce resources that they all needed to survive.
Ultimately, Major Crawford returned to Tennessee, where he died in 1841, three years after leaving Lauderdale’s battalion!
Today, should Elizabeth Warren be held to account for her great-great-great grandfather’s actions against the Seminole and Cherokee tribes in the United States of America! The answer is NO! After all, it wasn’t Warren herself who committed any atrocities, nor did she join up with a battalion that became famous for attacking the Indian people’s! HOWEVER, Elizabeth Warren has made it a habit, and developed a long history of using the American Indians for her own personal gains! For example, the National Review reported…
My favorite Elizabeth Warren story involves a cookbook. Warren, who was at that time posing as a trailblazing Cherokee, actually contributed recipes to a recipe book with the name, I kid you not, “Pow Wow Chow.” But here’s the best part of the story. She plagiarized some of the recipes. Yes indeed, her version of “pow wow chow” came directly from a famous French chef.
My second-favorite Warren story involves breastfeeding. She once claimed to be the first “nursing mother” to take the New Jersey bar exam, making her, I suppose, the Jackie Robinson of lactating lawyers. The problem? There’s no evidence this is true. Women have been taking the New Jersey bar since 1895, and the New Jersey Judiciary was “not aware” whether they tracked the nursing habits of test-takers.
Warren is a bit of an academic grifter. She’s willing to fake her way to the top. When she came to Harvard Law School, she was — believe it or not — considered by some to be a “minority hire.” She listed herself as a minority on a legal directory reviewed by deans and hiring committees. The University of Pennsylvania “listed her as a minority faculty member,” and she was touted after her hire at Harvard Law School as, yes, the school’s “first woman of color.”
This was no small thing. At the time, elite universities were under immense pressure to diversify their faculties (as they still are). “More women” was one command. “More women of color” was the ideal. At Harvard the pressure was so intense that students occupied the administration building, and the open spaces of the school were often filled with screaming, chanting students. One of the law school’s leading black academics, a professor named Derek Bell, left the school to protest the lack of diversity on campus.
Also, the American Thinker noted that…
Last month Rebecca Nagle, a Native American progressive activist who has been critical of Sen. Warren’s false claims of Native American ancestry and the professional benefit she obtained from making those claims, stated that William Marsh, another great-great-grandfather of Warren, also served in the Tennessee Militia that rounded up Cherokees in 1836.

National Review added that…
It’s a neat trick Warren’s accomplished. She’s likely leveraged her fictional Native American heritage into a plum spot at Harvard Law School. She leveraged her Harvard job to foist garbage scholarship on a gullible media. And now she has leveraged all of that into a plum Senate seat, from which a multimillionaire Ivy League professor has recast herself as a progressive populist heroine.
But it turns out that past ideologically convenient incompetence is a good predictor of future ideologically convenient incompetence. Her signature public achievement (aside from trash-talking Donald Trump on Twitter) is proposing and helping establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), an unconstitutional monstrosity that was designed to exist above and outside our nation’s system of checks and balances.
Last year, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the CFPB was “unconstitutionally structured.” Its opinion was not subtle. According to the Court,
The CFPB’s concentration of enormous executive power in a single, unaccountable, unchecked Director not only departs from settled historical practice, but also poses a far greater risk of arbitrary decisionmaking and abuse of power, and a far greater threat to individual liberty, than does a multi-member independent agency.
Then, they added that…
In short, when measured in terms of unilateral power, the Director of the CFPB is the single most powerful official in the entire U.S. Government, other than the President. Indeed, within his jurisdiction, the Director of the CFPB can be considered even more powerful than the President. It is the Director’s view of consumer protection law that prevails over all others. In essence, the Director is the President of Consumer Finance.
In fact, Elizabeth Warren’s long history of false claims, lies, distortions of the truth, and manipulation of policies for her own personal financial, professional, and political gains have led Indian tribes throughout the United States to condemn and slam Warren! It has led President Trump to nickname her “Pocahontas”!
The American Thinker also points out that…
So let’s put this together: Most immigration to the U.S. occurred after the U.S. Indian wars and most Americans had nothing to do with what happened. Among Warren’s Democratic rivals, Kamala Harris’s held slaves in Jamaica, but didn’t kill Indians. Bernie Sanders’s were persecuted Jews from Eastern Europe. Pete Buttigieg’s were recent immigrants from Malta. Joe Biden’s were potato famine refugees from Ireland which happened in the 1840s. Warren’s ancestors, though, were a rare exception to this pattern, they really did kill Indians.
There’s already been at least one means of reparations offered to the Native Americans through affirmative action. Grifters such as herself helped herself to that, stealing it from the Indians in the same tradition as her “Indian fighter” ancestors. Now she wants straight money reparations to the Indians be paid for by … taxpayers. We’re supposed to pay reparations based on the misdeeds of her ancestors, not ours. She’s certainly not getting out her checkbook for that one. Somehow, ancestry to her matters when there’s a benefit to be had, but everything turns collective when there’s some kind of penalty to be doled out.
Now, as Elizabeth Warren sits in the number two slot, entering the third Democrat Presidential debate, many Americans are wondering if the left-wing pro-Democrat Party ABC News and Univision, who are hosting the debates, will do what CNN and other Media outlets have refused to do, ask her about her false claims of Indian heritage, or even better yet, her actual heritage and relation to Major Crawford, who likely killed thousands of Seminoles, and Cherokee as well?
The debate will be held tonight in Houston, and she will be going up against 9 other candidates including Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden! Will they challenge her false claims, her true heritage, or ask her to apologize and pay reparations to the families whom her great-great-great-grandfather so dearly hurt, like they demand White Americans do for ancestors of Black slaves? Likely not! After all, the Democrats on the stage seem to be simply pandering to the most radical wing of their Party now, and it doesn’t matter about what is right or wrong, only what is good for their careers!
