Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren turns 63 today, and among her birthday gifts is one she probably won't appreciate very much. She's in a tight race against the GOP incumbent, Scott Brown. The state's Republican party announced this morning that it is gifting Warren, a Harvard Law professor, with a complimentary account at .

"Since Professor Warren has failed to come up with any evidence supporting her claims to Native American ancestry, we thought this account would make the perfect birthday gift," said Massachusetts Republican Party executive director Nate Little in a statement.

Warren has come under fire in recent months for identifying herself as Native American in law school directories based on a blood line that she said goes far back, though there has not yet been primary documentation to back up her claim.

Its a sad United States of America when racism takes precedence over more important issues. Why cant we all be Americans and not African Latino or Native Americans? I will NOT be voting Republican or Democrat just for this reason alone.

Why would the GOP require proof of her nationality? Shes an American. So does this now require that all Republicans must show proof of their ancestry? Its just the GOP's way of demeaning and racism. Who cares if she says she has native American background? Who cares if the president has a Kenyan father and a white mother? Apparently the Republicans do! Racist bunch of assholes.

Ann Coulter gets for this off-the-cuff remark shows you just how out in touch with their racism that the new Republican party is becoming. With Ann Coulter, this is never the case. Subtle ain’t her style… Especially in front of a hungry audience that’s begging for red meat.

The 2012 edition of the Conservative Political Action Conference really highlighted something we already know… Republicans are racists.

The party that claims to be so patriotic that they bleed red, white and blue has one small problem… They hate having a black President far more than they love America. Sometimes the depth of Republican Racism surprises even me. It’s one thing for Federal Judges to forward racist emails, for various TV personalities to blow their dogwhistles, and for tea party protestors to have their racist signs… But surely Republicans wouldn’t put their racism right out there in the Federal record! Wrong.

Gordon Warren Epperly, America’s newest racist of record, has filed a lawsuit in Alaska to bar President Obama from being on the ballot. His reason? Get this…

Epperly maintains that when the Constituion was written, black and “mulatto” citizens did not have the right to vote or hold office. True. He then says that the civil rights movement only gave these minorities “Civil Rights” but not “Political Rights.” That means that he thinks minorities should be able to vote but they are Constitutionally forbidden to hold public office. Take a few minutes to read the lawsuit and see for yourself.

He also goes back to the birther nonsense but his “Constitutional” argument is a new one… And fantastically racist. Since the Founding Father’s owned slaves and the use of slavery was widely practiced when the Constitution was written does that mean that not having slaves is un-Constitutional? Did President Lincoln “free” the slaves or did he just grant them walking-around-without-chains rights?

This just proves that Alaska is the Texas of the arctic circle and that Republicans are legally documented racists.

And what has Ol Gene in such a tizzy these days?

The daily tracking polls.

Saturday, June 23, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while President Obama earns 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The president picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008. The gender gap is now at 11 points. That’s little changed from the 12-point gap in 2008. Romney leads by 11 among men, and the candidates are even among women.

Once again the Topix Racist Genie shows his own racism while trying to push his racist agenda on others. This has nothing to do with racism at all. It has to do with a lady who lied about her minority status as a cherokee indian to entitle her to govenment minority status to furthur her education at Harvard. Here is the rest of the story that Genie the Topix Racist left out. The complete story:

Cherokees hammer Elizabeth Warren on ancestry claim ahead of Mass. party convention

Indian reporters and activists want answers from Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, who has given muddled replies about whether she used unsupported claims of Cherokee ancestry to further her academic career at Harvard.

By Patrik Jonsson, Staff writer / June 2, 2012

As Massachusetts Democrats meet at their nominating convention today, some members of the Cherokee Nation are stepping up a campaign to get answers about candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claims of tribal ancestry – a sideshow controversy that has nevertheless begun to wobble one of the most closely-watched Senate campaigns in the country.

This week, Indian reporters say they were snubbed by Warren’s campaign as they sought clarification on why Ms. Warren was listed as a minority Native faculty by Harvard in the 1990s, even though she has no evidence to back that claim and apparently never sought out other Native Americans on campus.

Jim Barnett, a spokesman for the incumbent Republican, Scott Brown, did talk to Indian Country magazine, noting that “any time a person tries to attach themselves to a group of people without rationale for doing so, except for maybe personal gain, it seems very seedy to me.”

A group of Cherokees has set up a website disputing Warren’s claims, and some tribal members said they may protest the Democratic nominating convention in Springfield, Mass., today.

While Warren is expected to win the Democratic Party endorsement, one challenger, Marisa DeFranco, may well pick up enough support to force a primary showdown in September. So far, Democrats continue to support Warren, who trails Brown by two points in the latest polls – the same margin as before the ancestry kerfuffle broke. But Ms. DeFranco has said Warren’s inability to adequately address the ancestry questions is hurting Democrats’ chances of retaking a Senate seat held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Indeed, signs are emerging that the Native claim controversy has begun to take a toll, as the number of Warren detractors rose by 9 points in the latest University of New Hampshire poll, released Friday. While polls have shown that the vast majority of voters still believe the ancestry issue is overblown, 42 percent of presumptive voters in the UNH poll said Warren had not adequately explained her assertion, compared to 37 percent who said she had. More troubling for her campaign, when asked who they thought would win the race – a question that sums up views and attitudes respondents are picking up from family and friends – 52 percent picked Brown and 27 percent picked Warren.

“Overall, this shows the strengths that Brown has and it shows the problems, obviously, that the Warren campaign has had,’’ UNH pollster Andrew Smith told the Boston Globe.

Warren was listed in the early 1990s as a minority professor at Harvard University, but the only proof Warren has of her claim of 1/32nd Cherokee blood is family stories about high cheek bones that came from an ancestor. In order for Warren to be 1/32nd Indian, it means that the ancestor had to be a full-blooded Cherokee. But on May 15, the New England Historic Genealogical Society said the group “has no proof that Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother O.C. Sarah Smith either is or is not of Cherokee descent.”

Elizabeth Warren challenged by Cherokee group

The group argues that Warren has made 'false claims of Cherokee ancestry.
By MJ LEE 5/30/12 3:07 PM EDT Updated: 5/30/12

A group of Cherokees have organized and launched a website disputing Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Native American heritage.

Some 150 people purporting to be “concerned” members and descendants of three Cherokee tribes have put up a new website called “Cherokees Demand Truth From Elizabeth Warren.”

The group is demanding that the Massachusetts Senate candidate come clean about her heritage – a topic that has dominated media coverage of Warren’s bid again incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown ever since it was revealed that the Harvard law professor was previously listed as having ethnic minority status.

“You claim to be Cherokee. You forget, it isn’t who you claim, but instead, who claims you. We don’t claim you!” a banner splashed across the top of the group’s website reads. The group argues that Warren has made “false claims of Cherokee ancestry,” and that it is bothered by those who “fraudulently” claim Cherokee heritage.

David Cornsilk, a 53-year-old citizen of the Cherokee Nation who co-created the group, told POLITICO that after a thorough research of Warren’s background, he considers her alleged 1/32 Native American roots “impossible.”

“My mom called me David Crockett when I was little, because my name is David. That doesn’t mean I’m related to David Crockett,” Cornsilk said.“1/32 Cherokee means that her great-great-great grandparent would have been a full-blood and if you have someone who’s a full blood, that means that that person’s entire lineage from that point backward are full-blood. And it would be extremely difficult, and in my opinion impossible, to have not had some of those family members captured within that wide net of historic records.”

Cornsilk, who explained that members of the new group have no intention of getting involved in the politics of the highly anticipated Senate race in Massachusetts, said that if records from Harvard show that Warren’s false claims helped her get a job, the Democratic candidate would owe Cherokees a sincere apology.

“She has not stepped forward and said this was just a family story that got out of hand — and around the dinner table that’s fine, but once it reaches the realm of public scrutiny? All indications are is that something happened. There’s smoke. We haven’t seen the fire yet,” he said.

“Cherokees Demand Truth From Elizabeth Warren” also has a Facebook page — initially only visible to members who claimed Cherokee heritage — that has more than 350 members as of Wednesday afternoon.

Warren spokeswoman Alethea Harney said in an emailed statement that Warren is “proud of her family and her heritage, and it is something that her family talked about often when she was growing up”— the same statement that the campaign has been circulating for days — without addressing questions about the group “Cherokees Demand Truth From Elizabeth Warren.”
