Eliz­a­beth Warren and her lit­tle DNA story

It piv­ots from the re­al­ity of a Demo­cratic mob and its dis­sem­bling

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - By Tammy Bruce

Pres­i­dent Trump has been on an­other win­ning streak, and the Democrats are des­per­ate for at­ten­tion. Their prob­lem? All the at­ten­tion they get is also a win for the pres­i­dent, as it re­minds us why he won in 2016 and why win­ning again in the midterm is so im­por­tant. Let’s start with some­thing the me­dia takes lit­tle heed of: The record jobs open­ings for the sum­mer. CNBC’s head­line says it all: “An­other great sign for the econ­omy: Job open­ings hit an all-time high in Au­gust.” CNBC also noted, the “sur­vey also found a near-record amount of quits for the month, in­di­cat­ing work­ers’ con­fi­dence in find­ing new po­si­tions.”

That’s right. Not only do Amer­i­cans have a job, but Mr. Trump has cre­ated an en­vi­ron­ment where we have more con­trol over what we’re do­ing, and know we can find some­thing bet­ter for our­selves and our fam­i­lies. Amer­i­cans are in charge of their lives again.

One of the rea­sons you don’t hear about the pres­i­dent’s leg­isla­tive, pol­icy and lead­er­ship suc­cess touted in the me­dia is be­cause they’re cov­er­ing the mobs and chaos brought to you by the Democrats. While many are won­der­ing what the Democrats could be think­ing by en­cour­ag­ing “in­ci­vil­ity” and vi­o­lence, it is be­gin­ning to make sense: They want to give the me­dia some­thing to cover other than the con­tin­ued blos­som­ing of the coun­try, while dis­tract­ing their own base from the fact that ev­ery­one is bet­ter off now than they’ve been in 17 years.

The Democrats, how­ever, are fol­low­ing the Obama rule book — they’re ob­sessed only with them­selves. The Clin­ton and Holder re­marks en­cour­ag­ing chaos and “kick­ing” peo­ple with whom you dis­agree were de­lib­er­ate com­ments which will ruin peo­ple’s lives. No one is go­ing to save the poor sap who thinks he’s fol­low­ing the or­ders of his he­roes. Hil­lary isn’t go­ing to bail any­one out of jail, and Barack isn’t go­ing to be any­one’s lead de­fense at­tor­ney.

On Mon­day, within a week of the Clin­ton and Holder calls for ha­rass­ment and vi­o­lence, Sen. Su­san Collins’ Ban­gor, Maine, home re­ceived a let­ter that re­quired a lo­cal and fed­eral law en­force­ment ac­tion. Her street was cor­doned off, her home blocked off with yel­low po­lice tape, and an agent in a haz­mat suit was pho­tographed plac­ing a let­ter in a pro­tec­tive bag.

Send­ing an ap­par­ently lethal en­ve­lope to the home of a sen­a­tor be­cause you don’t like how she voted would fall into the “un­civil” cat­e­gory of things, right Hil­lary?

In the mean­time, Sen. Eliz­a­beth Warren con­tin­ued to pro­mote the Obama agenda by think­ing only of her­self and her pre­ferred po­lit­i­cal fu­ture. The sen­a­tor from Mass­a­chu­setts re­leased a DNA test which she (and the pli­ant legacy me­dia) de­clared proved her Na­tive Amer­i­can an­ces­try. But not re­ally.

The real story is that Ms. Warren’s DNA was com­pared to Latin Amer­i­cans, not Na­tive Amer­i­cans. “The ge­net­ics re­searcher who re­viewed Sen­a­tor Eliz­a­beth Warren’s, D-Mass, DNAin an at­tempt to counter Pres­i­dent Trump’s ‘Poc­a­hon­tas’ jibes com­pared her sam­ples with those from peo­ple in Colom­bia, Mex­ico, and Peru rather than Na­tive Amer­i­cans in the U.S.,” re­ported the Wash­ing­ton Ex­am­iner.

“[The re­searcher] how­ever, didn’t com­pare Warren’s DNA against Na­tive Amer­i­cans who live in the con­ti­nen­tal U.S., cit­ing cul­tural re­luc­tance to sub­mit to DNA tests. In­stead, he used re­cent sam­ples from other coun­tries whose pop­u­la­tions pre­sum­ably share a lin­eage dur­ing hu­man set­tle­ment of the Amer­i­cas about 15,000-25,000 years ago,” noted the news­pa­per.

For­mer Obama 2012 cam­paign man­ager Jim Messina was none too happy about the sit­u­a­tion. He tweeted: “Ar­gue the sub­stance all you want, but why 22 days be­fore a cru­cial elec­tion where we MUST win house and se­nate to save Amer­ica, why did @ SenWar­ren have to do her an­nounce­ment now? Why can’t Dems ever stay fo­cused???”

‘Why now’ Jimmy? Be­cause Barack Obama de­stroyed the Demo­cratic Party as he fo­cused on cre­at­ing a cult for him­self. Be­cause Mr. Obama trained ev­ery­one to think only of him (and when he was gone, of them­selves), not of the party which would re­quire Democrats to ac­tu­ally think about the coun­try and their con­stituents.

Which brings up an im­por­tant ques­tion: What is Mr. Messina think­ing the Democrats should stay fo­cused on ex­actly? There’s only one nar­ra­tive that Ms. Warren’s Na­tive Amer­i­can gam­bit dis­rupted — that a Demo­cratic mob is out there and will hurt you if

you don’t vote for them.

Strangely, Mr. Messina was not in the news com­plain­ing about Mrs. Clin­ton’s en­dorse­ment of in­ci­vil­ity, or Mr. Holder’s call to kick peo­ple. Be­cause that is the of­fi­cial nar­ra­tive. His pub­lic wrath, there­fore, was for Ms. Warren and her lit­tle DNA story.

Mr. Trump’s and the Repub­li­cans’ good few weeks, and turn­around in the polls, started with the ex­po­sure of the Demo­cratic mob in the Se­nate try­ing to de­stroy Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh, but that was sim­ply the be­gin­ning.

The Demo­cratic Party melt­down con­tin­ues with threat­en­ing the elec­torate and dis­play­ing a pref­er­ence for chaos. Why? They be­lieve be­ing hon­est about their ac­tual pol­icy agenda of im­peach­ment (of Pres­i­dent Trump and Jus­tice Ka­vanaugh), gun con­trol, open borders, and pun­ish­ing Amer­i­cans for dis­obey­ing them in 2016, must be hid­den — and the only thing they can muster up, like all bul­lies, are threats of vi­o­lence and dis­cord.

The bot­tom line is this: Lib­er­als who care about their and the coun­try’s fu­ture must put the cur­rent in­car­na­tion of the Demo­cratic Party out of its mis­ery, and join ev­ery­one else who is vot­ing in the midterm for peace, pros­per­ity and ci­vil­ity.
