The DNA tests that Senator Elizabeth Warren used to try to rebut the ridicule of President Trump angered some native Americans go complain that the genetic analysis cheapens the identities of tribal members with deeper ties to the Indian past Warren was born in Oklahoma, which is home to thirty nine tribes. And we're more than seven percent of the population identifies as native American one of the highest proportions in the nation, but she's not a member of any tribe at many Indians, take exception to anyone claims to be part Indian without being enrolled in a tribe, especially for political purposes, the nation's five hundred seventy three federally recognized tribes collectively do not have a single standard for determining membership tribes. Like the Cherokee nation us lineal descent. Meaning a person is Cherokee if an ancestor is listed on an original role, regardless of their amount of Indian blood descendants of black slaves. The Cherokees once owned are also members of the tribe. DNA tests are not typically used as evidence to determine tribal membership making camera of national native news has more DNA test.

And that in fact is playing to the broader American publics idea and genetics society and a lot of white people's idea about about how native Americans should be fine. So what we ultimately end up with even while she gets us, the caveat that she's not enrolled, and she's not claiming enrollment is the privileging in the popular imagination of a non indigenous definition of what it is to be native American, and she knows and boost Montaigne knows and the rest of them know, very well that a DNA test is going to be taken to be the truth of native American identity and most Americans don't know anything about how tribes do citizenship and beyond that how we do social belonging. Warren's latest revelation comes after numerous verbal attacks by President Donald Trump ridiculing her decision to list. Her native heritage unemployment forums at two universities in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s Warren did not say the DNA test indicated she is Cherokee, but is set in the past that she has Cherokee heritage in a statement issued yesterday the secretary of state for the Cherokee nation.

We're looking at Mexico beached. It's kind of. Apocalyptic destruction right now, I hap- expecting Rick Grimes and Mishaan from the Walking Dead to come out and start fighting zombies. It look that devastated. And that's just a portion of neighborhoods that people are trying to get through and clean up. At this point. Joe we're still looking at neighborhoods that first responders and emergency crews haven't been able to get to yet. And that's the big story here. There's a huge cleanup. That's underway. That's going to take a long time to get there. And governor Rick Scott, telling everybody, listen right now, no reason for you to try to hurry back to your homes to see how everything is let us get things cleaned up before anybody starts making their way out of any shelter. Honestly, why go back? There's nothing to go back to this point them. Get the bulldozers out there to bulldoze everything guys start with a fresh canvas. And if you're gonna rebuild let's bulldoze everything I and get the canvas ready for something like that. Because it is just an utter mess. It is strange to see just these empty empty cement palace were homes used to be. And then they're still standing home for some reason this home built better get got hit the right way, and then other areas right next to it. Where homes are gone. I mean, literally does look like it's mostly leveled. So why not go in there and level the rest of it? And just start the rebuilding process push everything intake truckloads of garbage out and move forward from

"It looks like a bomb went off houses were smashed to smithereens. And people were just shaking their heads that they made their way back to really what was ground zero for Michael. Hey, everybody, Kate Delaney America tonight, close your eyes and imagine right now, your house disappears before your eyes. What does that feel like pretty much Michael left, Mexico beach in shreds, completely shredded some of the photos, and the video from there are I would say shocking, but we've seen this before is very different very personal though when it happens to you good news is so many people came together, including a hospital there were they got the most serious people out. In other words, there is a man who was waiting for a heart transplant. There was a woman who's about to give birth and they were able. A chapter chopper them out of the area. Thank goodness. But it was a real kick in the stomach catastrophic damage six people, at least they think there could be more killed by hurricane. Michael one of the most powerful hurricanes ever to hit the United States. So this wasn't. Oof. Looked pretty bad. Boy. Some of those trees were this was bad. When we say for one of the four worst hurricanes of all time. You know, we're not fooling on this one. And the descriptions of it looks like a bomb. We've heard that before when there's been catastrophic damage after tornadoes and other types of windstorms, nothing like this, and you see the aerial views a thousand people I mean, just impacted plus with trees sheared off tangles of power lines in the streets boats piled up like they were. Baby votes in a bathtub thrown upside down just things you don't normally see frankly and the administrator of the femur saw what it was like. William long. He he saw he saw that what this isn't going to be put back together overnight. It's time to put back together next week the week after that the week after that this is the long haul. That's what it is. And then the storm moves up toward the north. So there's power outages in Virginia in North Carolina about one hundred and forty five thousand Virginians didn't have power, according to the department of emergency management. And when we see something like this. You know, what it makes me think of when people would make fun of me. In the ten years. I've done this show. We'd be talking about emergency. Go bags and things you had to do and sell it on the show and people will say, oh, come on. Really? Are you really thinking that you have to have emergency kits? Are you really doing that? And the answer is. Yes. Because imagine this is gonna hit landfall. What are you got packed up? What about your documents? Because one it's shredded like toothpicks, you're not finding those bills. You're not finding stuff that you need to find to to get through what you have to get through. And you're not finding it. And hopefully, you've got it written down somewhere. And that's basically what it looks like it looks like people are just trying to piece things together. I mean, people lose all their belongings like that. Poof, you're stack somebody said when they were asked about it. Why didn't you get out? And they said we didn't have any money. We were you know, my mother works at mcdonagh. Donalds? She doesn't have any money. We couldn't get out of there. Luckily, they were spared their lives. There's an air force base right there between Panama City and Mexico beach six hundred families had to ride out the storm in a shelter. No injuries. That's the good news. There was an F fifteen fighter jet at the base entrance torn from its base flipped upside down that gives you an idea right there. Not far from Tallahassee. There is a man who was killed when a tree crashed through the roof of his house. Another thirty eight year old man was killed. North of Charlotte. When a tree fell on the car. He was driving. Happenstance wrong place wrong time, passing through homes really aren't built anymore to withstand the kind of wins. Especially in the Florida panhandle that we're talking about. And that's what happened with Michael. So they'll be conversation about that. They'll be conversation about rebuilding and. What do you do in in these emergency situations? But when you look at. The people in Mexico beach when you look at those between these tiny coastal towns something to think about. Is be prepared as prepared as you can you're not taking everything in a house with you. But at least if you have a few things ready, and I think a lot of people did then it gives you some comfort as you try to crawl back to look at the mess and see if you even have a house anymore, or you're one of the people that just has nothing there other than a few shreds of what used to be your house. There were some places that had roof a roof torn off or side torn off and certainly were damaged but had. The foundation still intact had parts of the house still there. But there were probably more homes that weren't even homes anymore. So that's a complete re build or that's a complete. We're moving someplace else. That's what that is. During this show. We'll talk about other things besides the destruction. Thanks to Michael. There was Konya having lunch with the Trump. And boy the cameras caught him just ramble. I think he thought he was writing a rap song. The pres- looked across from him and just kind of shook his head. What was he going to say? And listen to what he had to say. But he talked about feeling like superman with his red hat that said make America great again. So there were people a certain he's one of the people that defends the president. And there are other people that do as well Jim Brown, the NFL legend was there with con. Yay. And he. Praise. The president for his treatment of himself and the controversial rapper Browns said we had the opportunity to meet with the president of the United States was everybody doesn't have that privilege with me at eighty two years old. The only thing I could talk about was how to help other people. So it was very positive. It was very positive is what he has said Brown has been a longtime supporter of Trump as his Kanye west their support for the president draws lots of criticism because of some of the policies implemented and the two of them feel as though as minorities that they are kind of out on their own. And you're not you're not out on your own listening to this show. Like, I said we have a lot of things that we're going to jump to including during this hour will certainly go to the mail bag besides the mail bag. We will hit the man cave, and we'll zagging a couple of different directions. Because there's a lot going on. There is a lot going on notice that now in most places in the United States, whatever autumn looks like to you. We finally have off upon us. So why it's sad to see? What's happened with Michael and these crazy rainstorms others are in.

I mean, some people are saying the whole the whole like this Mexico beach, all like, this just leveled still tons of flooding, but just took completely destroyed structures toxic red tide could sickened people as hurricane Michael pushes it ashore. Because we've been hearing a lot about that. We've talked about it here on quick five before previously that toxic red tide. That has been worse in Florida than in many many years. Now, they're saying hurricane Michaels. Pushed a lot of the red that toxic red tide inland, exposing people to the dangerous health effects of a record algae bloom that has just it's really affected much of Florida's coast. There was a surge as as much as fourteen feet along parts of the Florida, panhandle. And they said look this is going to bring this red tied up to land. This is what some of the biologist and ecologist at the university of Miami are saying, you know, could the toxin could get in the air people could be breathing. It the red tide is made up of an organism that can trigger attacks and people with asthma and some people say they have headaches flu like symptoms stinging is they're coughing things of that nature. So man, I hope people I hope people are going to recover from this. Also, I told you about how mosquito. Ios hurricane Michael spawned monster mosquitoes five times, the normal size of regular mosquitoes. And they're felt like a needle. Well, apparently, there's a shark warning as some there were some sharks that were swept in by these horrific conditions. So yeah, they were saying just, you know, be kind of careful storm brings in stuff, and it floods, and you know, you could I mean, depending on how deep the water is. And you've got fourteen foot storm surges, you could have some bigger things are Washington the streets, and maybe could get into other bodies of water as well. But yeah, I mean, just just insane. And a man was rushed to the hospital after he was actually stabbed any haunted house.

You listening to this get the whole tornado scenario and some understand what it's like to go through the hurricanes to the key thing is if it's not the water, it's the wind, and I'm Michael really, it was about the wind and ground zero was Mexico beach, and Mexico beach. I didn't even know there's a place called Mexico beach. I been all over Florida. But there's a million little towns, and I've course, I'm familiar with Tallahassee, and who isn't and Panama on Destin and all those places, but never had heard of Mexico beach and then seeing the flooding and the devastation. Woo. Boy, the so smart rushed in so quickly. It was so smart to get people out as soon as they can. But you know, even when you soon evacuate. It doesn't mean everybody takes that warning. And does it it doesn't mean that they leave even though they know there's the potential of massive flooding loss of power and all the things that that involves when you have a cat four or cat five one person.

"You listen to podcasts. The eye wall coming through right now making landfall in Mexico beach. That's about forty five minutes from where we are. We're told the winds are one hundred fifty five miles an hour. One hundred fifty seven miles an hour is what would make it the most powerful category storm a category five. So right now you are looking at the strongest most powerful category, four hurricane to exist. And this is one for the history books. This is going to be a record breaker. And unfortunately we are so very concerned. For those in the past, a local reporter, witnessing, sadly hurricane that now lives in the record books and Tallahassee. Loretta Dennis and her husband Morton kindle, read rode out hurricane Michael in a crawlspace under their home. They're safe. Thankfully, they join us now Loretta more than thanks for being with its at what point during the storm did you move down into the crawlspace, and what made you decide to seek shelter? There. We have decided to stay in our home. We talked about our plan of action. My husband suggested this idea and I thought he was crazy. I'm afraid of certain bugs. I assume they wouldn't be under my house and he came actually down here in back humid and cleaned it and laid them blankets, and made it very inviting and win stormed out. Really, going and limbs. Large limbs were falling. It became a very inviting face to me. Well, first of all, you have all credits at you have the nicest husband who would vacuum underneath the crawls days. I can't even edging I close faces are not very fun to hang out in. That was very nice of him to do. What was it like riding of the storm out down there because I would imagine people would think, wait a minute, isn't that on the ground? Isn't water going to come in through there? I guess, are you on an elevated position. We are not in a flood plain area. And when we moved into this house ten eleven years ago that put down your barrier, it's required in state of Florida to have moisture barrier, so fear. So it's covered in very heavy duty plastic, and it is as dry as can be. I knew that going in that it was going to be driving because the Plummer in bed under here to handle another problem. So we've got a fan that lights. We've got Lankans pillows and a little bit alcohol. Devil. That's a good preparation right there. Can you are you in? Are you in the crawlspace still right now? Yes, we are. Can you just show us around a little bit? I mean, you don't have to move around just kind of shows on on your phone. Yeah, it's just you'll see beams and and it's probably I don't know two feet high. We keep dumping our heads, there's cables wires. I don't know how much you can see, but it's syndrome, it's a cinderblock house. It was built in nineteen fifty-six. Those type houses a native Floridian. They are sturdy. They hold up to just about anything so can save for fine when the storm came. I mean, did you does? Did you hear the house creaking or shifting or moving? Because I imagine being underneath the house would could be scary. If if you hear that kind of stuff. No, what made us get under her quickly as large limbs beginning to fall out of my beloved trees. When we saw the end since it was a daytime storm, we can visit see this with our eyes. And I think that's the worst part is watching it. And when things start falling and you're concerned about your roof and branches and things coming through your roof, that becomes very a good idea to sit under a solid surface and we're near the exit of the crawlspace. So. Could get out if we wanted to very quick. Right. Well, I, I'm so sorry about the oak trees. I know that you know, it sets when you love to love trees like that. It's just awful to see a Loretta Martin. I'm glad you you both are safe and Morton again, kudos for the vacuuming and the blankets, and and whatever alcohol you brought down as well. I wish you both the best and hope you're able to come out of. All right. Thank you very much. You take care joins us now a very busy man, Andrew gillum who's the mayor of Tallahassee mayor?.
