"cherokee nation" Discussed on The Joys Of Binge Reading: The Best in Mystery, Romance and Historicals

"The show. It's great to have you with us thank you. I am delighted to be here. Thank you for the implication. Look you've got four. A four book mystery series and there's something very unique about them because they sit in the cherokee nation in northeastern oklahoma. You're a tribal citizen of the cherokee nation yourself and you'll heroin the lead character in your stories sadie is also as well. That must be a spatial thing for you is it is i am cherokee from my mother's side of the family and my book by character sadie is cherokee through her father's side of the family and it is that you'd need a setting in that i ride from the cherokee perspective. Where not every mystery writer can do that if they're not turkey. That's absolutely right in with this. Waste and promotion that we've been doing. I've been reading a few more. Waste and writers. Were not western books. And i did normally opin actually quite surprised at how many doom mentioned and they do pay homage in various ways through the tonight of people but they don't have the insight perspective. They're all outsiders looking in. So that gives you a unique perspective engage. Yes it certainly does. How do you think could actually you books different. What how is it reflected in the writing. Well i believe that the stories that i write about in when riders i start writing. They're told to write but they now and of course i'm cherokee so that's what i know and i believe that makes the characters more fantasy too since i'm writing about cherokee country and have cherokee characters. I believe it makes them more authentic and their everyday life and and how lips and tasting. And you'd have a very good appreciation of what modern life is like for the cherokee wouldn't shape because these are contain pre novels. That's correct that rather than writing historical fiction. I decided to write in current day so that it would be a reflection because there's so much misinformation out there about indian life today. I'll tell you a quick little short story. I hope it didn't take up too much time when i was a teenager. I was working at a restaurant. Not far from it was actually unlikely. She's the restaurant was on the shores of lake gucci and a man came in and he said he wanted to know if i could tell him where to find the indians and i said well on cherokee does that count. You said no no. I'm looking for the indians in their teepees riding their horses. And i started laughing because i thought he was joking and he was not joking and he had two young kids with him. It made me realize that people from outside of oklahoma had no idea how indians live in today's society. They think we're all writing courses living in teepees. And so i just when i started riding. I wanted to make sure that people got a an accurate trail of what's going on in today's lie. Yes short now is is like you chee. That is where you grew up. isn't it. yes actually part of a reservation or is it just normal kind of country as well within the cherokee nation area the nation reservation Where i grew up and It's a nice leg. it's a great fishing lake. Get along tourists there. Yes yes it's great. Look the mice. Recent book in the series is cool betrayal buffalo ranch and it sits a dynamic of an unscrupulous land on with big plans to tune ranch. Into one of those places richmond come and shoot animals and some of the locals by normal americans and jerky are safe about these plans. I think it's going to be horrible for the district. Have something like that there but there are some cherokee and your story who actually going along with us and actually plotting with him that produced the some of the complexity about the relationships. Now the dozen dutch yes. It does and those characters who are working with the ranch owner. They were not exactly interested in hunting aspect of the ranch as much as they were wanting to skin. Some extra buffalo off the the number of buffalo that were being brought into the ranch so that they could sell them and make extra money. It was kind of a greedy aspect of Away to to make some money. And i suppose you're gonna find that kind of people in all walks alive on. How much of your stories is founded in fact and things that have actually happened. And how much is your inspiration. Well the places are true there. There is no buffalo ranch around the there is however a buffalo herd it is owned by the cherokee nation. Now i don't think they've been Doing anything like i suggested by book. That's all fiction but they are using the buffalo her to to help with the even with me for the elders in the tribe and making money. It's a money making and the have rights to join that it's interesting yeah look sadie is a business woman with a romantic relationship with one of the dp sheriffs in the county. So she's close to the law but she is very mature independent woman. She isn't a law officer as such itself and that produces a bit of tension in the romantic relationship. Doesn't it tell us about lance y. He came into the book. Because this an interesting story associated with how lance even going to be there in the first place isn't there very is and as you say saying he's a very independent woman shelter overhaul on land that she got from our turkey. Father she's a business woman as you say so in the first book she has a short lived. marriage bed. didn't turn out so well so she's very cautious about getting married again and so there is a tension between her and land smith because she's certainly fallen in love with him because she's very hesitant to let him tell her what to do or anything like that in the first book when i say my manuscript at university of little they it because of the fact that it is current day in the country and they asked me if i could add another professional To just the doctor or lawyer something. And i thought about it and i ended up adding land smith and so i had to go back and rework my manuscript and add this character which is not too easy to do so. He doesn't have a huge part in the first book that he is. There is a police officer and then in the second book it takes on a much larger role. And that's when he and sadie become romantically involved as it has come along. The readers have really also fallen in love with lance and he's wanted their favorite characters so he's here to stay and he just kind of a added as an afterthought to.

What Happens When Hidden Histories Become a National Conversation?

"At the end of may. When news broke that the remains of more than two hundred children had been found at the kamloops indian residential school. It was news to many canadians. Who learning about the history of residential schools and the role. The canadian government played in the creation. It seemed to mark a new sense of awareness across the country in indigenous communities. Grief came quickly but not shock and not surprise. These types of losses are well known in our nation's and in our families and in real time we watch the rest of the country feel the depths of this history daniel heath justice is a colorado born citizen of the cherokee nation and he's an author and professor of critical indigenous studies and english at the university of british columbia. He joins me now to talk about what happens when hidden histories come to light daniel. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. We're talking about hidden histories on the show today and for me the idea of hidden histories is interesting. Because they're not hidden for everyone up until a few years ago when unreserved would would air story about residential schools. We'd get emails from people telling us that they had never heard of this before the show for sharing this information and that's a luxury indigenous people don't share. It's in our families. It's it's part of our history. How do you think so much of this. History hasn't made its way out of our communities. I struggle with that question. I think there is a sense in many ways that this is only about indigenous people rather than being very much about settler colonial canada. I think there is a sense for a lot of people that when we say school. We mean an educational facility which these were not. I mean these were re education and torture camps. I think we have to start naming them for what they were. I think non-indigenous people Just tune out because the the level of the horror if they had to face it would radically transformed their feelings about the country that they live in if they honestly address that

Cherokee Nation chief tells Jeep to rename its SUVs

"This is gonna be a big story nationally but also locally the principal chief of the cherokee nation has asked jeep to stop using the tribes names on all of its the deep grand cherokee sells like crazy. I think it's actually gps bestselling model. If i'm not mistaken but the company has sold suv's under the cherokee brand name for about forty five years. Now here is that t- talking about this today in two hundred. Twenty one of the action. I saying categorically that i think is wrong to use our name who peddle a response to this. Jeep said it's vehicle names have been carefully chosen and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate native american people for their nobility prowess in pride gps. That is now more than ever committed to a respectable and open dialogue. But the chief said he couldn't really see any sort of rain underwood's it would be acceptable for deep to continue using his tribes name on its vehicles for most people tribes don't seem real In terms of the they're experiencing something in history and naming something after something in history probably doesn't feel too bad particularly if it engenders some strong positive emotions. But i think in this year two thousand twenty one we ought to be talking about the fact that tribes are still here were vibrant. We do a great deal for people in our communities and our names means something and they've been here a lot longer than the jeep company and other corporations that have seized are named for profit. Is there some way to keep could use that name that you'd be fine with it whether it's the way that they could use the name that i would be fine with it. It certainly doesn't honor by using that name and and it will surely never intended to.

How does the Electoral College work?

"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes.

"Best on that Piper in New York. President Trump is back inside the White House tonight after a three night hospital stay at Walter Reed Medical Center correspondent Steve importantly, says Mr Trump took his mask off. Despite still battling the virus. The president departed the hospital in a suit, tie and mask. He boarded the Marine one helicopter for the short flight south to the White House in a dramatic demonstration staged for live television. The president walked up a flight of exterior stairs to the blue Room balcony. He turned to face Marine one took off his mask, gave a double thumbs up and saluted before retiring into the residence. Correspondent Major Garrett has been talking to his sources inside the White House and those in the president's inner circle and reports on what they're telling him. The president, he comes back to the White House. Has to stay there and he goes back to Walter Reed for any medical reasons. It will break this narrative of this heroic triumph over Kobe 19. That's why I think you saw some emphasis from the president's physician's today describing all of the facilities available to the president to monitor him at the White House. If there is anything subsequently that goes awry, President Trump's doctors on Conley still will not say when President Trump last tested negative for the virus. But he says the president will now work from inside the White House and be as safe as possible. We're gonna do whatever it takes for the president to safely conduct business wherever it is, he needs to do.

That's what people should understand is U. S attorneys have a full caseload as it is, but they don't take on every single case, and they declined. A lot of cases well under McGurk, The U. S attorney like Our tribal prosecutor is going to have a lot of responsibilities and a lot more cases to take care of. So we're all going to need more resources. An attorney, euro Lar came with on expression of support of friendship and wanting, I think just as important to make sure that the resource is would be there to help us along the way. Your community has faced historic discrimination. What are your priorities as we're about to elect the next president? Well, we want to be treated fairly and respectfully by the United States, irrespective of who occupies the White House. That is what the Cherokee people expect. That's what they deserve. You know, our relationship for the United States goes back to when the United States was founded. We were here before there was the United States, but that history is one that is largely one of broken promises and what I'm undertaking to do again. Whoever's in the White House is make sure promises or kick McGirt was about keeping a promise in the Supreme Court. United States said that the end of the trail of tears was a promise. That was the opening line of that decision. That promise was a reservation. But there's a lot more promises. For example, the United States promised the Cherokee Nation delegate in the Congress, the United States. I've been working for years to make sure that our delegate get seated. That's very unique in Indian Country Day today, though, the Cherokee people have needs in terms of health care and education and housing. And these are just handouts we're looking for from the United States. We want them to make good on the promises. They're set forth entreaties and statutes and court decisions. So I want the next president United States, whoever it is to keep the promise of the United States to the Cherokee people in all of Indian country because I think this country Is better when it keeps its word, And it needs to start by keeping its word to the Cherokee people and really toe all tribes in this country. Chief Hoskin Thank you so much for your time. It's a pleasure to speak with you. Pleasure's been mine. Thank you.

Matt Laszlo has a story from Washington suicide rates in substance. Abuse problems in Indian country are always alarmingly high, but officials fear big spikes during the pandemic.

Leaders of the Cherokee chickasaw choctaw nation say more dialogue as needed on potential impacts of the mcgurk case, the US Supreme Court recently ruled.

Oklahoma tribal jurisdiction problem

"And here with us at Ann Arbor Michigan. Today is Riyaz. Kenji partner with Kenji and Ketson he is currently representing the Muskogee Creek nation. In mcgirt case that we are talking about also here is a partner with pipes. Tin Law Mary Catherine Nagel and she's a citizen of the Cherokee nation. She joins US OUT OF DENVER. Colorado thank you both for being here and Riyaz before the break you were talking about The significance of the history. And just where we got to today and of course. There are more Things that you'd like to share just paint this picture fully. Please do and also open up. Why we're even talking about any of this about where land exists and it doesn't under tribal jurisdiction in how it applies to this case Go ahead continue your thank you You know where we got to where we are. Today is a really interesting question. So it Congress An axe the statutes and the in the very early part of the Twentieth Century Paving the way for Oklahoma statehood as I was saying before the break. None of those statutes Say Anything about just establishing the creek reservation but what happens is in nineteen o seven. Oklahoma becomes a state. That's right around the same time that oil is discovered in Oklahoma and you have this tremendous influx of settlers The Creek Allotment Act which was passed in nineteen. O One Took the what was communal. Ownership of the creek. Nation parceled out Lots to creek members almost exclusively to treat creek members. The land of the reservation was divided up with the idea being that Consistent with federal policy of the time. That the creeks were would own their land in individually they would learn to become farmers they would be acculturated but it would still be their land But we all know what happened What's been described as a orgy of plunder and exploitation with that land having all of a sudden become incredibly valuable because of the oil deposits. There was all manner of Fraud Cheating and worse. Outright murders To dispossess the creeks of their land so in a pretty short amount of time. A reservation that under federal statute entreaty was still meant to be controlled by the creek. People in terms of landownership Ended up having a very large proportion of non Indian ownership and because of that confluence of factors over time. Sort of the argument welled up while there's not even a creek reservation here anymore. Look at look at it demographically. It's largely Non-indian and what this litigation is really about is reaffirming the rule of law which says that even despite what happened in terms of this orgy of plunder and exploitation and the transfer of land title to a largely to non Indians Congress disestablished the reservation boundaries and those remain intact so that the creek nation while it might not own much of the land within the reservation just as true for my say my home state of Michigan which does not own most of the land within Michigan's borders that those borders still still exist in talk to me a little bit about the authority of the courts. Mary Catherine especially Intertribal nations when it comes to all of this and we think about where jurisdiction lays plenty of issues when it comes to policing as well as Crimes committed anything more. You want to share just to make things clear when we talk about Why murders even claiming this happened on indigenous land? Sure yes one thing. Very clear right Anyone who studied federal Indian Law Understand that it is. You know a giant complex network when A crime is committed within the borders of a reservation on tribal lands or against the native victim or by native perpetrator. There is a huge complex jurisdictional analysis that law enforcement that You know a potential prosecutor whether there'd be federal state or tribal. Everyone has to undergo an this crazy analysis right and at the end of the day And we can agree or disagree with this law but the law is that you know and again I can come up with some exceptions but by March if the victim is not native and the perpetrator is native. Even if it's on a reservation in most instances the state right is going to have jurisdiction and so at the end of the day you know we know right now. Creek. Nation has a reservation. That's never been disestablished. It exists let's say regardless of whether the status quo is maintained changed really not going to alter whether or not Oklahoma has criminal jurisdiction over over the majority of the crimes committed within the borders of what we understand the the creek nation reservation today. Why because federal law is crazy it that way and we can debate it but at the end of the day. Oklahoma is going to maintain its jurisdiction over. You know the majority of population is very point out is not Indian and they're going to maintain jurisdiction over the majority of those crimes however Tribes ever in nineteen seventy eight. The Supreme Court eliminated tribal criminal jurisdiction over non Indians who come under tribal lands and commit crimes. And that's been very unfortunate and Indian country and a lot of our are made of women understand that this is contributing to wide native women suffer the highest rate of domestic violence sexual assault and murder in the United States. Today it's the Department of Justice is noted majority of violent crimes committed against native victims are committed by Non Indians. Congress has taken action to address this vision all from nineteen seventy eight and twenty thirteen restored tribal criminal jurisdiction acts criminal acts of domestic violence dating violence in violation of protection whereas committed by Non Indians so our lives today can protect their citizens living on travel and some those crimes but if you look at volatility thirteen statute very clear that those categories of non-indian crimes the try to prosecute them if the crime is committed on quote Indian country and that is a very a term defined by Congress to include a treasure ovation. So if you have a reservation today which not just create nation. That has this issue right. You've got tried to sue or standing rock or you know Fort Birth hold or Tulalip. Who have reservations that have survived statehood and have survived allotment right but if Oklahoma wins and Oklahoma gets to say no no no if your reservation was created before the state came into existence. You can no longer have a reservation today regardless of whether Congress ever just established you then all of a sudden those types who may have already or may seek to implement Vala twenty thirteen's restore criminal jurisdiction will now be put a law where they cannot protect their own tribal citizens against these three categories of non Indian perpetrated crimes anywhere within their borders. And instead they'll have to go under undergo and even more complicated analysis About the individual status at that parcel of land is that individual personal of land and restrict status. Is it in trust status. Is it non Indian fee lands In which case it would not be Indian country under the statute and so it. Actually the court's decision this case could have far reaching implications for the ability of tribal nations to implement vase restored criminal jurisdiction. And that's something. Oklahoma doesn't want to talk about right because really what's at stake here is not Oklahoma sovereignty but the sovereignty of our tribal nations. And that's really I think important to keep in mind and something that you know. Certainly Oklahoma won't be spreading in their conversations about this case. And so I WANNA get your your take to just thinking of the justices who are GonNa be hearing this and what you just explained. How deep is their knowledge on on? How tangled all of this is especially when we come to Violence in our nation's in I do want to let folks know that we did reach out to the state of Oklahoma In and invited them to be on the program. Today we did not hear back from them In America for Neagle tell me about The analysis of you know the knowledge of the point. You just brought up in how verse justices are in all of that. Well you know and I will defer to answer this question too because certainly the supreme court is his area of expertise but justice course such as a as an intellectual heavyweight when it comes to federal Indian Law You know historically a lot of the justices on this court did not study Indian law in law school. It's an area. They're very unfamiliar with. We're very fortunate that just gorsuch will be hearing this case. And if you've looked at the precedents. He has written his the decisions he wrote in the Tenth Circuit and since he's gotten to the Supreme Court it is clear that he in a very intellectual way under stands federal Indian law the complex framework of Criminal Law on tribal lands Dealing with tribal citizens. Both you know in reservations offers divisions rush. You know he understands all of this in a way that I think few other justices can parallel I think there are few other justices on the Supreme Court that have done a lot to educate themselves on these issues. Like justice. Sort of your

"That's correct. The federal government signed an agreement in eighteen o two with Georgia in exchange for them surrendering their claim to western lands to become Alabama and Mississippi the federal government promised to remove all Indians from the new boundaries of Georgia. And then in eighteen twenty nine gold was discovered in the Cherokee nation and the state of Georgia reacted by passing laws that purported to a race Cherokee nation, and there were a series of federal laws and supreme court cases that made this removal of the Cherokee possible. That's true. Andrew Jackson owed his election to southerners in frontiers man, and he was determined to make removal his top legislative priority. And in may of eighteen thirty the Indian removal act was passed it gave the president power to negotiates removal treaties. There were two subsequent supreme court cases. The first one was inconclusive. The second was a victory for the Cherokees. But president Jackson refused to enforce it. And why did it become the trail of tears? Why was there so much death and disease involved with the removal of the Cherokee people from their homeland? The original plan after they were rounded up was to move them over the summer by riverboat, but the rivers were too low for that to her and the first couple of attachments, one thousand suffered terribly and so John Ross the Cherokee principal chief ask Winfield Scott, the commanding general for permission to wait until fall and to allow him to organize the removal, Scott agreed. Unfortunately, one of the earliest winters people could remember in one of the harshest winters occurred that year the eighteen thirty eight eighteen thirty nine and about a quarter of the Cherokee people die in route to Indian territory modern day, Oklahoma of disease and exposure and hunger, and we should point out by the way that the president who you've mentioned serve orchestrated. This whole thing was Andrew Jackson who is an idol of President Trump's. Yes, he has Jackson's. Presidential portrait in the Oval Office. He made a pilgrimage to Jackson's grave and laid a wreath on it. And he's referred to him as the greatest president. What did you think when you saw President Trump's tweet the other day with trail in all caps? I think it's hard to miss. He's expressed anti-indian views from as far back as when he was just a casino owner. So I think this is probably a pretty clear what about the other criticism. And that would be of Elizabeth Warren who has claimed in the past to be native American turns out, she is not. But in the twenty ten federal census over eight hundred thousand Americans self identified as Cherokee, which is almost triple the number of people who are actually enrolled citizens of the Cherokee nation, Oklahoma. Why do so many people believe or say that they have native American ancestry? Specifically for the Cherokee, I hear this all the time teaching in Georgia, my students say that they had a Cherokee great great. Great grandmother who always the language used dropped off the trail of tears as if it were just easy enough to say, I'm a little tired. I'll sit here awhile. And then I'll catch up I think it's one way to expiate guilt, and it is a way to establish your link to the indigenous peoples of this place as a way of saying I belong here. Well, what do you think about the fact that Elizabeth Warren had said even on an official document many decades ago that she was native American. Well, as you said her claim is dubious at best. We don't know that she actually benefited from it the documents referring to was her registration for the Texas bar, but it's fairly silly. I think that is Jason Weaver who is professor of native American studies at the university of Georgia. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. You're listening to here. Now. President Trump falsely claims a border fence in El Paso has drastically cut down on crime with a powerful barrier. In place..

"It is thanksgiving by happy Wednesday to you talking about Elizabeth Warren. She's she's not going to get anywhere in the last question, which we'd never heard the answer to she walked away. I guess was are you going to drop out of the race? Well, she's going to have to if if all they do is ask her about this. She's not going to be able to talk about her ideas. If she was elected president, this is what I would do. Nope. It's all about and she and she was repeating what she has to repeat, and I did not know this. But once she had the apologies meeting with the chief of the Cherokee nation. That's what the Cherokee nation leaders were saying is that you you can't determine that your Cherokee only we can we are a sovereign nation. And we say whether you are going to be part of our nation. And that's what she was being the very loyally lawyerly answer was the. The fact that. That it's up to them and their sovereign nation. And I am not a tribal citizen. So she said she learned it from family stories, which we've heard before, but this business about it had nothing to do with any job. I had let me tell you a little brief story. Many years ago, I'm working for this mega Radio Corporation at one of the guys that worked at the station where I work. A good a good guy. Really nice, man. I don't want to give his name. But he. His family was from Mexico US citizen born in America and all that but he had Mexican heritage. And so he was kinda trying to spoof around a little bit. He's a funny guy, but he came out, and he says, well, I just want you to know that the company gets extra benefits because I work here. And I said well will wide he says because I have my heritage and the company gets points for that under the equal employment rules, and I said I said you're not going to like this. But I said I get the same number of points. This you know, you don't you're just you're a white guy white guy with Irish answer. You don't get any more. You don't get any points for that. And I said, no. But I am technically a disabled American veteran. What he was livid that I got the company got the same points for me that they that they got for him. And I've talked before I got hurt in the military. It wasn't a big deal. So I'm not I'm not rolling around like a lot of these disabled vets. But technically, I am. And so when they. Asking they checked the. Yup, there it is. So did I get any benefit from that? I don't know. Did the company get benefits from it? Absolutely. And they got benefits for Elizabeth Warren saying that she was in American Indian. So when they asked her about any other written claims out there, she dodged the question started going down to the thing about I'm not a tribal citizen, and they said are any more going to come forward. Have you done that to any other documents? And she basically said yes because she said at the time it was consistent with what I did. Then I said how voters react to this. Because she dodged the question. I don't know. But she's not going to be able to get her message out about what she wants to do. When every time. She turns around there's another form somewhere that they find it the Washington Post, and if it's the Washington Post who got this. I'm betting you a large lunch at a drive up window that this was from one of her competitors for the democratic presidential primary. Eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred. There's our buddy Jerry in Milwaukee. Hello, jerry. Hey, tom. I'm about six six oh generations removed from ancestors came from Germany. There's a lot of other people like that or ancestors came from Italy Ireland. Irish America German American. That's how you American right removes. So she has the same machines and six hundred generations. I don't think she should lift yourself has state of American 'cause I think she's just removed. But the fact is objective facts shows that she has native American ancestry at likely since you smoke, Oklahoma, probably from Cherokee ancestry. So those are established. Well, I'm not green the results. They said, it's likely. But. Hey did say that she does. And if she does it would be six to ten generations removed to your point. So. Yeah. I said a lot of people who are six generations removed from Germany or Italy or Ireland so-called little so's Germany American. They're -talian America's so this is fundamentally different. And and to those people who say, you're attacking her based on this thing. Okay. But a lot of those are the people who support Donald Trump. Did you support Donald Trump? You have you pod procedure talk about character. I knew I knew you had to get. I knew you had to get the Trump thing in because I. I know you hate him so much, but let me ask you something else. Jerry, which I thought was very appropriate to ask you about given the news from today. The first thing she said to those reporters in the hallway, and then they were chasing her down like. She said well, first of all it was thirty years ago. Well, there happens to be a governor in Leonard. Trouble in Richmond, Virginia that's going. Hey, it was thirty four years ago. Good enough. Well, I mean they were learning to actually work for acts committed as teenagers, very young adults. So you you look at that too. But they show sorrow, you know, they miss they were wrong. I know you're gonna to go off and get. But I wish we could admit he was wrong. You know? I just want to point out the difference. We don't have a president who admits when he was I asked him. He's he's never wrong. He said he he told me he's never wrong. Well, first of all, I hear you. I know what you mean. He makes up some of the craziest things drives me, absolutely zany. But all presidents are always asked that question usually at the end of their term, so George W Bush. What mistakes did you make as president? And I'm telling you, there's a long pause. They don't like to say they ever made a mistake. They just don't buy. I know what you're saying. Donald Trump is in his own league. When it comes to saying stuff. Everything's the best the greatest all that sort of stuff. So I hear you. All right, Jerry. I'm glad you called. We always enjoy your dissertation. Jim billings, Montana. Hello, jim. How are you? I'm doing good yourself. Tom terrific. Thank you very much. Can you hear me? Yes, sir. So so my point is when they were talking to Elizabeth Warren. A great follow up. Question would have been when she talked about these. We're family stories about her American native heritage, right? That her and her brothers had been told and all that type of stuff. My next question would have been so how many applications did your brothers? Check American Indian on when they went to school job applications any other applications that they have my bet would be zero. But I, but that would be a great follow up question is if you and your brothers were actually told us, and you believe this enough to check American Indian to get jobs to get whatever else has benefited you. How many times did your brothers do that as well? And let me ask you. So she says, no, no, no, no, no. This had nothing to do with any jobs. I just came from the family stories. I don't write down Irish-American. I don't do any of that stuff. I don't I don't even check a box on disabled vet. I don't do any of that. Right. You know, she was doing that. She was doing that to get a leg up somehow on ener job. Why else would you do? Really? College say that they had some minorities on the staff now that she failed a status on the Dow, yes, they were looking absolutely. We're looking for diversity. And they said we got one we've got diversity look at this. Nice Indian lady over here was with Warren. I gotta run. But Jim, thank you. Great question. We'll be right back,.

"You will remember Elizabeth Warren managed to get hired at Harvard? And other forms of personal. Advancement based on supposedly being American Indian. President Trump and many others are pointed out that no she's not. So she had a blood test. Oh. And then as the left will do she claimed the blood test showed that choose American Indian it didn't. She was probably less American Indian than my wife is Indian American or then my wife is and my wife is actually indian-american. She's probably less American Indian than my children are and they're from northern Africa. But nobody bothers to dig in either support Elizabeth Warren or you don't. Now, there is much discussion over the fact that Elizabeth Warren may have unintentionally unwittingly, but almost undeniably caused a lot of problems for Indians in this country. Native Americans if you like. Because by the standards of treaties, and massive budgetary entitlements. There has been over the years a raging debate over how you determine who is an Indian and who isn't. The federal government issues something called a certificate of Indian blood. But not all tribes have to use that. In other words, if you were to take their blood type. It wouldn't have to show that they necessarily were part had as their ancestry American Indians. At least not blood wise. So the Cherokee nation, for instance, as long as you can trace your ancestry to a documented tribal member you can apply for citizenship. So there's one standard called blood quantum. That's what the Navajos the Navajos use for instance. And that's what they call juice sanguinis or the right of blood. So. That that's what you use in in many places around the world to prove you are from that country of that people. Well, not Tober four the federal judge in Texas ruled that the American Indian child welfare act was unconstitutional on the grounds. It violated the constitution's equal protection clauses and gave native people preferential treatment on the basis of race. Because remember Elizabeth Warren said my people were never connected to any tribe. I just think I have some Indian blood in me that was her defense because the nations who have a national council. At which they want sold t shirts of me having EROs shot through me for some comments. I made but that system of SaaS story. The nations have a tribal council that meets in a national convention, and they have long fought against this. This notion of blood because using this notion of blood, you could say that person's in Indian that person's not will their argument has always been. Somebody could wander onto an Indian reservation. Be taken in by the family and three four generations have lived on the reservation. That's an American Indian that would be their argument. And historically that's been the case. If however you're giving all of these rights in a pertinent to someone on the basis of something that could be measured by their blood. That's preferential treatment on the basis of race. The judge in the case said the act was unconstitutional because it was a race based statute. Something the tribes have disputed and the federal government has been has disputed. But something that's not going away anytime soon. In it's going to make for a very very interesting conversation. If some people have their federal benefits from the department of interior on the basis of supposedly being American Indians or native Americans if they have those withdrawn on the basis of Elizabeth Warren. Claiming she was an Indian for her own advancement. Fathom. The irony of how hard native Americans are going to campaign against FOCA hana's because she made their lives worse by trying to claim to be one of them. Oh, could it be more beautiful? Proposition one passed last month in Michigan with fifty six percent of the vote marijuana will be decriminalised, but you won't be able to purchase it just yet. It could take up to a year for state legislators and businesses to figure out the licensing aspects. Adults over the age of twenty one will be allowed to cultivate, possess and consume marijuana starting today. Michiganders' under the age of twenty one will not be allowed to possess pot in any quantity. The state government will also issue licenses for retailers transporters processors, growers micro-businesses and safety compliance facilities. Municipalities will be allowed to limit. The number of licensed establishments within the town limits Michiganders' under the age of twenty one will not be allowed to possess it the state government. We'll be issuing the licenses and regulating it. That's going to be very interesting. Michigan's not exactly Oregon or California. It's a more midwestern state. It'll be interesting to see that laboratory a year. Or two years from now on November fourth still a candidate for the United States Senate from the state of Texas Baidoa repeated what he'd been saying for months? I absolutely positively will not run when asked if he would run for president. Well, now, he's changed his mind. Beta it turns out has now already met with Barack Obama to discuss his potential twenty twenty run. Obama aides are reportedly eager to help him. They see this as hope and change two point. Oh. Well, that's going to be interesting. I don't think.
