Early Saturday morning, three of the Occupy protesters from the “nonviolent” F*** the Police march were charged with “possession of an incendiary or explosive device, conspiracy to commit terrorism, and providing material support for terrorism.” The arrests stemmed from allegations they were planning to create molotov cocktails.  The three, Bryan Church, Jarred…

There is zero evidence that Elizabeth Warren is Cherokee, despite her having touted such heritage at various times, and she stands by that claim in the face of contrary evidence. Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart.com, and to some extent your humble correspondent, have laid Warren’s claims bare. Last night National Review Online r…

Today, Megyn Kelly of FOX News interviewed Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes about Elizabeth Warren’s claims to Cherokee heritage.

Dana Milbank and Jayson Blair versus Richard Mourdock

Posted by
5/18/2012 at 2:00pm
It’s pretty unfair to compare Dana Milbank and Jayson Blair by lumping them together with no real connection, isn’t it? Almost as bad as this headline and column from Dana Milbank lumping Richard Mourdock and federal prisoner Keith Judd together, Richard Mourdock and Keith Judd vs. Washington: Both men were beneficiaries of voter…

The Elizabeth Warren Cherokee saga is like opening up a Russian matryoshka doll, there’s always something else inside. Or perhaps more appropriately, like peeling back The Onion. Please say this is not soooooo! From Michael Patrick Leahy: The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic  Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host…

Does this suprise anyone?  Oh, to not agree with Rahm Emanuel in Chicago: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not returning calls from the Ricketts family and is “livid” over a New York Times report that Joe Ricketts commissioned a proposal for a multimillion-dollar ad campaign linking President Obama to the president’s former…

That’s part of a comment from reader stevewhitemd to my interview with Marisa DeFranco, who is challenging Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primary: If Harvard were better at having a diverse professorship, it would not have to put someone who appears as white as I am out there as minority. That’s really it in…

A trove of documents (embedded in viewer at bottom of post) was released tonight in the Trayvon Martin case.  The big headline is that the police report prepared a month after the incident said it was “ultimately avoidable” if George Zimmerman never got out of the car.  That’s legally irrelevant, as I’ll explain later. First,…

As I mentioned the other day, Marisa DeFranco is challenging Elizabeth Warren in the Massachusetts Democratic Senate primary.  In light of Warren’s three-week long Cherokee disaster, I reached out to DeFranco to get her take on the controversy and the primary race. While several other high profile candidates dropped out in the face of Warren’s national…

Today, new footage surfaced from the Occupy/ F*** the Police march Tuesday in Chicago. [Language warning, not safe for work]. The video shows a side of the Occupy / F*** the Police march not shown by the mainstream media. The media continues to ignore the radical messages and tenor of the Occupy…

He’s back. And the NY Times and other Obama supporters are not happy, so the Times reveals the scoop that a large Republican SuperPAC donor is considering — yes, considering — an ad campaign in the fall focusing on Wright: A group of high-profile Republican strategists is working with a conservative billion…

Remember the non-parody story about Elizabeth Warren citing her cousin’s partial editing of the early 1980s Pow Wow Chow cookbook as evidence of Warren’s Native American ancestry? I could not figure out how Warren found that obscure text.  Now we know, she submitted recipes to it, identifying herself as Cherokee.  I wonder…
