There have been no shortages of “October surprise” attempts by the extreme Left to derail Republicans’ chances of holding onto the House and Senate, as desperate Democrats try anything and everything to reverse a slide in electoral victories that started in 2010 under the Obama nightmare.
Thus far, the Democrat ‘surprises’ have included a porn star, Stormy Daniels, whose defamation lawsuit against POTUS Donald Trump was just thrown out with a ruling that she must pay his legal fees; a character assassination attempt against a POTUS Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, that was so over-the-top it boosted Republican candidates in close races; and Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcohontas” Warren, who tried this week to one-up the president with a DNA test “proving” her Native American lineage.
Only, it didn’t. In fact, all the test proved was that her Trump Derangement Syndrome is so advanced she couldn’t help shooting herself in the foot while contributing to the electoral losses of more Democrats during next month’s midterms.
Shortly after Warren released the results of her DNA test which she sought as a means of verifying her oft-repeated claims to Cherokee lineage, it became clear that she had as much Native American blood as, say, your average European (which is to say not very much).
That said, she nevertheless seized on a small portion of the DNA report claiming that there is some Native American blood – somewhere along the line, like six to 10 generations ago – thereby making her 1/1,024 Native American. (Related: REPORT: Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandfather was a member of the militia that ripped Cherokee from their homes, separating Native American families.)
But come to find out, the entire test was completely devoid of any Native American lineage. In fact, as Breitbart News points out:
The Stanford University researcher who studied Sen Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) DNA sample did not actually use samples of Native American DNA.
In other words, Warren’s DNA test was as phony as her original claims to a Native American bloodline. What’s more, she was outed by The Boston Globe, another “mainstream” media rag that has been particularly praiseworthy of her.
The Globe broke the initial story about the DNA story, which claimed that because of the six-to-10 generations timeline, Warren could be anywhere between 1/64-1/1,024 Native America.
Ah, but later – buried in the story – is this admission: The researcher, Carlos D. Bustamante, never used any Native American DNA (because it is rare since Native Americans don’t trace their lineage by DNA, the trace it through genealogy).
To make up for the dearth of Native American DNA, Bustamante used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American. That’s because scientists believe that the groups Americans refer to as Native American came to this land via the Bering Strait about 12,000 years ago and settled in what’s now America but also migrated further south. His report explained that the use of reference populations whose genetic material has been fully sequenced was designed “for maximal accuracy.”
So rather than rely on legitimate Native American DNA, Bustamante’s test instead is based on pure faith that his methods of extrapolation, and other techniques used to make his determination, are legitimate.
Also, it’s not at all clear how his estimation verifies her prior claims of Cherokee ancestry. What’s more, 23andMe, a leading DNA testing company, reported in 2014 that “European-Americans had genomes that were on average 98.6 percent European, .19 percent African, and .18 Native America,” The New York Times reported.
Rather than the “bombshell” October surprise that Warren no doubt hoped for – she reportedly gave a DNA sample up for testing in August – this, like the other Democrat ‘surprises,’ has turned out to be a gigantic nothing-burger and in fact will very likely help Republicans next month instead.
She should have just kept her real identity a secret like she originally planned.
