Massachusetts State Senator Katherine Clark retracted her support for Elizabeth Warren’s claims of native American ancestry according to one of her constituents at a regularly scheduled constituent meeting Friday morning, Sept. 7, 2012. Senator Clark had defended Warren’s claims on MSNBC last May. The name of the constituent is Catherine and she tweeted it at Catherine@museofhistory. Michael Patrick Leahy posted this:
Breitbart contacted Sen. Clark’s office for a followup statement, but have not heard back. They also contacted Elizabeth Warren’s campaign office for comment, but with no response.
In additional to not being able to explain her heritage, it seems Warren also has some problems understanding and explaining the art of investments. From National Review Institute’s Patrick Brennan, “Warren’s Web of…Confusion”, regarding some comments from her talk at the DNC.
“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”
The man still has work to do, and he knows it!
Eastwood drowns out narrative. Not bad for an out of touch rambling old man.
Where is the DNC news? Way down there somewhere
I just realized something…
Obama CANNOT any longer sit on a stage, waiting to be introduced.
As soon as he gets up to speak, he lives the dreaded “EMPTY CHAIR” talisman to remind people that it is OK to fire him!

Democrats can forget any convention bounce. With jobs created at 96,000 no speech will drown that sad fact out.

And yeah^^ Eastwood was right. Time to let em go
Whoops. H/T Glenn Reynolds on that
Detail hereat our friends at Zerohedge
Paul Rahe has found another potential lie by Warren. (will require some research to confirm she is the source of the claim in Wikipedia that she was the top debater in OK in high school).
Jeez. Want to go back to when blacks were beaten?
You tell me who the racist is
No lets go back to when blacks suffered from unemployment of > 15%
Wait. That was this morning.
Lets go back to when blacks were treated about like endangered species and were over protected because it was reasoned, they couldnt exist without government.
Wait. That was also this morning.
Will they have a big ol’ cake at the DNC convention!?
Although you have probably seen this, if you haven’t you need to check it out right away.

Whoa. Good find.
I sent the author of the article you cited a copy of this article. I mentioned it was not meant as criticism, but for him to look at. He may still feel the same afterwards regarding the “Best Debater in Oklahoma” award Herring (Warren) received.
Disregard my previous comment. The author cites this in his update. I failed to notice. My apologies.
While it’s tempting to laugh at the total economic illiteracy on display in this video, it’s actually quite disturbing. Because these are not only voters, but staunch enough Democrats that they became delegates at the convention. These people can never be allowed to have real political power.
Barack Obama’s Most Egotistical Moments
While I was making the video a new one popped up: “John, I’ve got great confidence in my ability to sway the American people,” Boehner quotes the president as having told him (from Woodward’s new book).

Oddly, young voters continue to feel less and less enthusiastic about President Obama
POSTED AT 12:01 PM ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 BY ERIKA JOHNSEN
In 2008, the youth vote was practically gift-wrapped for President Obama, with larger-than-average numbers of starry-eyed, enthusiastic, inspired under-30s showing up at the polls to vote overwhelmingly in his favor. Obama barely even had to do any real work to convince them that he was their guy — the pervasive sentiments of Hopenchange and his totally sweet graphic designs were enough to get the job done. Obama’s been losing some of his steam with the youth vote for a time now, and as Karl Rove penned in today’s WSJ, it looks like cold, hard reality might finally be forcing the youths to wise up:
Then there are voters ages 18 to 29, among Mr. Obama’s most important supporters in 2008. The roughly 23.7 million “millennials” who voted in 2008 were 18% of the electorate, up 2.9 million voters over the previous presidential race. They gave Mr. Obama 66% to Sen. John McCain’s 32%, according to exit polls. This margin of roughly eight million votes was a major chunk of Mr. Obama’s overall edge of 9.6 million.
But youthful enthusiasm for Mr. Obama has waned. In October 2008, 78% of voters 18-29 told Gallup they would definitely vote that year. Now it’s 58%.
There’s also evidence that fewer younger people are registered. A November 2011 study from Tufts University found that 43% of the decline in Nevada’s voter rolls since 2008 came from voters ages 18-24. Similarly, while North Carolina’s rolls rose by 93,709 over that period, more than 48,000 younger voters were dropped from the rolls, 80% of them Democrats.
Mr. Obama’s lead over Mr. Romney in the latest JZ Analytics poll among voters ages 18-29 is 49% to 41%. If young voters turn out this fall in the same numbers as in 2008 and give Mr. Obama this eight-point margin, it will take 2.8 million votes from Mr. Obama’s total and add more than 3.3 million to Mr. Romney’s tally.
Somehow, I don’t think it’s any of the young idealists’ normally pet-issues of climate change or ending the wars or whatever that’s causing them to turn tail from supporting the President — but our lately meager economic growth and the almost 13 percent unemployment rate among those aged 18-29 might have something to do with it. As more students graduating from high school and college during Obama’s tenure have remained guests on their parents’ couches, frustrated and unemployed/underemployed, promises of lowering their student loan repayments by a few dollars and letting them stay on their parents’ health care plans until their 26 flipping years old (culture of dependency, much?), have worn increasingly thin. Finding good jobs that can provide them with their own health care plans are becoming somewhat more of a priority.
It isn’t for lack of trying to spellbind — er, I mean, persuade — the youths, however; President Obama has increased his campus presence 175 percent in 2012, according to a study from American Majority Action (granted, it is a presidential election year, but the amount of time he spends talking about his ‘investments’ in green energy and education and whatnot seems somewhat disproportionate with the importance most voters place on jobs and the economy):
President Obama spoke 13 times on college and high school campuses in August alone—more than any other month of his Presidency, according to a new study from American Majority Action’s Campus Action project. Desperate to try to energize a youth vote that is starting down a long unemployment line, the study shows that since January 2012, the President has increased his presence on college campuses by a staggering 175 percent over last year’s appearances.
President Obama has appeared on campus one out of every ten days since his administration began. … However, during this year’s reelection campaign Obama has already appeared 44 times on campuses with 37 of those in “swing” states. All of the last 26 speeches to colleges were in states that are critical to his reelection. …
Even more telling about Chicago’s concern over a dip in the youth vote for the President this year, Obama has largely avoided mentioning the economy during his campus stops. Just like he’s avoided meeting with his Jobs Council for six months, Obama has instead focused on telling students about ObamaCare and student loan aid.
Our national debt just topped $16 trillion this week — so get it together, youths. Who’s going to pay for that, do you suppose? We are. Don’t let President Obama dangling free contraception, student-loan repayment help, and renewable energy projects (all of which, by the way, you’re going to end up paying for in the long run, anyways) in your face distract you from the real issues. There’s only one party that’s been focused like a laser on our debt, entitlement reform, jobs, and the economy (hint: It ain’t the Democrats, either).
Wow. What a wonderful ad to highlight the most radically anti-life person to ever hold national office.
An interesting observation (from Andrew Sullivan, of all people):
No I dont wish this stuff on anyone but its going to really impact the CT Senate race. We may well pick up a win here
It never ends…
“CHARLOTTE — Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s campaign said Tuesday that the Democratic National Convention’s Native American Council has not asked her to appear at a meeting to answer questions about her claim to Cherokee heritage…
The Herald reported that its “Truth Squad” visited a gathering of Native American delegates in Charlotte, site of this week’s Democratic convention, and asked them about Warren’s claim. Some said they were concerned that Warren might have claimed undocumented Cherokee ancestry to advance her career as a law professor, a charge Warren and law schools that hired her have denied.
One of the concerned delegates named in the Herald report was Harlyn Geronimo, the great grandson of the Apache warrior Geronimo. But Harlyn Geronimo also told the Herald he was unfamiliar with Warren’s claim, and he is not a convention delegate, according to a list on the Democratic convention website. Three others featured in the Herald story are delegates.
Asked Tuesday at the convention whether she planned to meet with the Native American delegation and field questions about her heritage, Warren threw up her hands in exasperation.
“I’ve answered those questions,” she said. “I’m here to talk about what’s happening to America’s families. That’s my job. It’s my full-time job.”
-So because one out of the four Native American persons the Herald spoke with was not an official DNC delegate, they don’t count? Is that how this works now???
This is very good.
Sandra FLUCK is a lying slut. I use the term advisedly.
here ya go folks not good for obama
Bob Woodward Of Watergate Fame…. New Book Portray’s Obama As Incompetent
Remember the fight in Congress over the debt ceiling, right afterwards our credit rating was down graded. Well Bob Woodward of Watergate fame has a new book coming out ….here are a few choice pieces from that book, with commentary by CBS. The basic upshot was if you remember what it was John Boehner claimed was that he and obama had cut a deal but that obama later came in and tried to change it leading Boehner to walk away from the talks. Well, Woodward says that it was indeed true and that they had a deal in place and obama came in at the last minute and tried to wring more taxes out of Boehner. When you see the quote from rahm emanuel who was the president chief of staff early in his administration remember how the democrats always make the claim of striving for bipartisanship. What I take away from it is that obama couldn’t find his ass in a dark room using both hands and a flashlight.
Death Threat From DNC Delegate: ‘Mitt Romney… I Would Like To Kill Him!’
You know, this is getting outrageous. These people just seem to blurt out death threats without thinking about what the heck they’re doing. The same people don’t even know how to carry through one of those. (Thankfully!!)
And not just that, but they threaten people who strongly believe in the Second Amendment. Don’t they think that, if they even try, they would be at a serious disadvantage from the get-go? Talk about stupidity – especially if/when the Secret Service decide to have a nice little chit-chat with ya.
Bottom line: don’t threaten death to someone. It sounds stupid – and it is stupid.
I think the Romney response should be a simple Eastwood quote: “Go ahead. Make my day.” And leave it at that.
From Ricochet.com. Sounds as if Paul Rahe might have first hand knowledge of another problem with Elizabeth Warren’s resume. Is anything real about this person?
I’ve recently noticed a funny phenomenon occurring. Many liberal women (and sometimes men) who comment on various sites have pictures of their cats as their photos. No links, just something I’ve noticed.
Are the Dems the party of the crazy cat ladies?
I have my dear kitties and sometimes use a kitty picture as a profile, but that doesn’t make me a Democrat. Thankfully.

Democrats Boo God At DNC Convention
They tried to reinsert God and Israel by naming Jerusalem as its Capitol back into party platform last night …..it sounded like it failed and when the chair moved that it had passed he was boo’d
When it rains – a-hem, a-hem – it pours.
First, they changed the venue from a 74,000-seat stadium to their current venue because of, ahem, rain.
Now this: Feds Seek Prison Time For Obama “Hope” Artist
Even the “HOPE” poster and its artist are going down in flames! Heh!
Rabbi David Wolpe of Los Angeles’ Sinai Temple, where Monica Lewinsky and her family were congregation members for decades and where Lewinsky attended religious school, is scheduled to deliver the benediction at the Democratic National Convention tonight — not long after Bill Clinton speaks.
GOTS to love you some juxtaposition…!!!
You have the prime-time rope-a-dope, and you have the rest of the Collecivist convention.
It’s almost like they are trying to dupe the American people…
If anyone needs any further convincing that the on-going Democrat Convention is as screwed up as a soup sandwich, this short piece on last night’s umbrella fiasco ought to do it. 🙂
My goodness! They don’t seem to want to hide it now!
Artwork Likens Obama to Jesus
So, Obama is The One who will take the American people towards a new Promised Land. The Promised One! The Blessed One! Heaven Sent! “The LORD is my shepherd…” Nothing different from the “Praise and Worship” crowds we saw in 2008.
Is this idolatry or what?
Where is the darned outrage?
Is a word of this speech true…I mean, starting from the teachers teaching without pay in a bankrupt district.

Want a visual that explains our 16 Trillion debt?
I’ve seen something similar to this before. It’s just staggering.
I’d like to see one that gives what the tax increase has been over the last fifty (50) years by salary range. So, if a person in a 10 – 20,000 or 30 – 40,000 could see by means of a graph what the trajectory has been and likely to be. This might “open some eyes.”
I like graphs. They obviously can drive the point home, when words alone fail to do.
An update on that recent “racist” peanut throwing incident at the RNC, professor; seems as if it might not be exactly quite as advertised.
When you’ve spent your entire life shape-shifting your identity to fit your environment, when you’re a postmodernist who views reality as fungible, when your media acolytes have compared you to JFK, FDR and Lincoln — before you’ve taken office, even as they simultaneously admit that even they don’t know what the heck you really stand for — you don’t get to claim that someone is calling you “fictional.”
Go read the whole thing, and follow the links.
Obama’s Dreams by Thomas Sowell:
But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.
Did the NY Times Just Get Obama Fired?
The Crack Hotels of the DNC
The journalism class got a, ahem, nice little taste of what reality under Obamaworld looks like.
“Two guys were dealing drugs in the room next to me, and a prostitute was working out of the parking lot. And this was in the early afternoon. The room itself was dirty, full of other people’s stuff, etc.”
“TripAdvisor had these recent comments on one of the Knights Inn properties: “wouldn’t recommend it to my worst enemy,” “scared to death,” and “pimps and prostitutes at night.””
“Tucker Carlson, editor of The Daily Caller, told me that the Quality Inn his staff was assigned to was “the worst hotel you can imagine.””
You must read it all.
Moral of the story: before being assigned any accommodations by the DNC, please check the online reviews, and plan more decent alternatives beforehand. And if the DNC insists on making you stay at the “crack house”, feel perfectly free to give them an “Eastwood”-full and vote with your feet.
But Wait! It Gets Better!!
