In today’s world, only privileged people say “I don’t support violence of any kind”

It is a technique of distancing because of discomfort. Behind the “violence” of these protests is an entire civil”i”zation’s history of rabid violence against its own people, which continues today. Violence cloaked in consumer habits for low-cost goods made in subhuman conditions worldwide…but out of our sight. Violence in a rape culture popularized from Disney to Universal, Rap to Country, and beyond.

Violence in our work out gear, our yoga clothes (no irony there), in mass factory farms of greens promoting monoculture destruction of diverse ecosystems (yep, you thought I was going to say beef) all for those spirit elevating green juices.

Violence in our factory meat production, in our addiction to technology and the cobalt needed for those batteries taken via violence as Africans are robbed of their land, health, and history.

Violence in the reservations set away from public view where Indigenous culture has had its roots ripped up, raped, burned, stomped on, and set ablaze again.

Violence in religion, yes, religion, where belief after belief has been forcibly thrust down the throat and into the bodies of indigenous people on every continent since religion was created.

So, when I hear people say, I cannot condone violence of any kind, which aspect do they mean?

It must be nice to remove one’s self so far from the reality and history of those around you that you can negate the emotions, the rage, the frank history that propels the so-called violence.

In fact, to stand by and “not condone” is to stand with the oppressor who says repeatedly “if you would just comply there won’t be violence”

No, the time for absolution from violence has come to an end. It is time to be violent, to be rabid and vocal, to stand, link arms, defend, hold strong.

It is time to tear down these violent laws, these violent churches, these violent consumer habits, and claim restitution.

We cannot sit and cower from our anger, we cannot sit and have pleasant intellectual discourse, we did that, and it got us here.

2020 YEAR OF TERROR and VENGEANCE

Lost your livelihood during this time of record unemployment? Wrestling with the impossible choice of feeding your family or getting evicted and living on the street? No worries, you can apply to be a contact tracer and earn up to $22 an hour ratting out your family, friends, neighbors, and enemies!

Build your future career rooting out those who think they know someone who caught COVID-19, maybe someone in their small apartment complex was recently infected and shares the laundry room. Well, if the team can’t connect with them over the phone, you can send someone in protective gear to not so politely knock on their door.

Gestapo tactics anyone?

It’s been estimated only 15% of Gestapo cases started because of their surveillance operations. The inefficient Gestapo only numbered 16,000 in a population of approximately 66 million so they depended on family, friends, and neighbors to do their dirty work for them. [1] A far greater number of Gestapo cases began following tip-offs from members of the public by widespread petty and false complaints. Every allegation, no matter how trivial, was investigated with meticulous and time-consuming thoroughness. An estimated 42% of these denunciations were false. Authorities debated changing the system, but ultimately decided to keep it because it was great for keeping everyone in line, it’s estimated approximately 42% of accusations were personally motivated.

A Berlin stoker reported a prostitute who gave him a venereal disease. Husbands and wives informed on each other. A housewife in Mannheim told Gestapo her husband was making derogatory comments about Hitler’s regime. Turns out the wife wanted her husband out of the way to continue a love affair with an off-duty soldier. In another case, two married doctors were involved. The wife accused the husband of carrying out illegal abortions. This led to his arrest and imprisonment. The husband claimed his wife had a vengeful motive. The husband had passed on a sexually transmitted disease to his wife while carrying on a love affair of his own. Their motive, revenge!

[1] Nazi leadership introduced a hostile environment and initiated measures, whether through legislation or violence, to establish an ethnically defined “people’s community.” By being largely compliant, those who were not excluded had helped to create an even more hostile environment, one in which it was possible to carry out terror in broad daylight without significant unrest or intervention on behalf of the persecuted.

Ever since Coronavirus lockdown measures went into effect, police stations have been inundated with calls denouncing neighbors for excessive public outings. The avalanche of complaints about joggers, overly frequent trips to the supermarket, people not wearing masks has increased exponentially.

And now it’s been announced, several companies are partnering with the United States government offering $17-$22 an hour for ordinary citizens to turn in their family, friends, neighbors and enemies to authorities. What motivates these people to inform on their fellow-man? Money? Fear-based insinuations? Perceived threat of virus? Hostility toward those disparaged as “other”? Are these people convinced it’s their civic duty? Maybe resentments or grudges?

Isn’t it enough Apple and Google, announced on April 10, 2020, they expect Digital Contact Tracing (DCT) to be released in May with the “Coronavirus 2019 Enhanced Tracking Technology for iOS and Android”; wireless radio signals warning people someone they have been in contact with ‘may perhaps’ be infected?

[3] Are we to continue remaining passively on the sidelines while government continues to step on our Constitutional [4] [5] Fourth Amendment rights which prohibit “unreasonable searches and seizures” requiring warrants be supported by probable cause determining what is permissible surveillance at the federal and state levels?

In Katz v United States; defined an unreasonable search as; “when the government engages in warrantless surveillance of individuals under circumstances in which they have a ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ the use of eavesdropping devices violates privacy.

[3] Arguably, the [4] [5] Fourth Amendment issues could be avoided by making use of the so-called ‘special needs doctrine’; accordingly, a warrantless search would not pass the Katz test to be predicated on a ‘special need’, relating to national security, and whether individuals can be subject to quarantines, forced medical testing, mandatory vaccines and involuntary RIFD microchip implant devices, raising the question of government “seizures” (of the body).

There is a complex point to be made about compliance when ‘special needs’ are not conducted for a traditional law enforcement purpose, and circumstances make securing a warrant impracticable, the Supreme Court has ruled warrantless searches may be permissible. However, the ‘special needs doctrine’, is highly controversial.

In Ferguson v City of Charleston, the Medical University of South Carolina subjected unwitting pregnant women to tests for cocaine use; those who tested positive were then charged with criminal child abuse. Ultimately, the Supreme Court noting the ‘special need doctrine’ cannot serve law enforcement purposes. Because the women were threatened with criminal sanctions based on a non-consensual search, the ‘special need’ could not justify the search.

In the context of ‘Contact Tracing’, application of a ‘special need’ consideration would likely preclude any sort of criminal penalty. Therefore, a person could not face criminal sanctions for a quarantine violation based on information obtained through a non-consensual search i.e. “Enhanced Tracking Technology”.

Now back to applying to be a ‘Contact Tracer’ earning up to $22 an hour ratting out your family, friends, neighbors, and enemies, snitching on rule-breakers, wantonly lying about marginalized people, narcing on annoying neighbors, getting even with an ex. When do we stop tattling on one another?

So, think about it, how willing are you to trade in your own privacy and the privacy of others for profit?

And lest we forget [2] [6] Eva-Maria Buch studying foreign languages at Humboldt University; she was accused of passing secrets to the Soviet Union. On October 10th, 1942, Eva was arrested by a Gestapo officer who said she’d be treated more leniently if she named other collaborators within the group, she replied: ‘That would make me as low as you want me to appear.’… Eva Buch was guillotined at Plötzensee Prison, Berlin August 5, 1943. She was 22 years old.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

Remember Evangelical Christians; Matthew 7:2: “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”… Because you might be the next one who finds the Gestapo kicking down your door!

Surgical Masks ~ CDC, OSHA, New England Journal of Medicine, Surgeon General etc.

People conceive face masks in terms of physical tools to mitigate risk, yet masks are nothing more than symbolic gestures producing a false sense of security. Psychologically, masks provide protection to a person’s perception of future-oriented risk reinforcing fears, increasing anxiety, and instilling potential loss of something valuable in anticipation of a threatening future, just perceived in the present.

In the 1919 influenza pandemic, masks were available and dispensed to populations, but they had no impact on the epidemic curve. At the time, it was unknown the influenza organism is nanoscopic and can penetrate the surgical mask barrier. As recently as 2010, the US National Academy of Sciences declared, “in the community setting, face masks are not designed or certified to protect the wearer from exposure to respiratory hazards.”

Dr. Eli Perencevich, a professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Iowa’s College of Medicine “The average healthy person does not need to have a mask, and they shouldn’t be wearing masks, masks won’t help people avoid the virus and they may actually increase the risk of getting it. People wear them incorrectly increasing the risk of infection because they’re touching their face more often.”

Homemade masks were created as a fashionable way to keep the wearer from breathing in large particles, like car exhaust, air pollution, and pollen during allergy season. They were not conceived of as a way to protect you from acquiring COVID-19.

I’ve been saying for 2 months, every time I put on one of these masks I get severe headaches lasting hours upon hours as a result of hypo-ventilation i.e. not being able to breathe properly to get oxygen into my lungs.

When we take a breath, we pull air into our lungs which primarily contains nitrogen and oxygen. When we exhale, we breathe out carbon dioxide. … Just like oxygen, carbon dioxide is transferred to blood to be carried to the lungs, where it is removed when we exhale. Statics prove; moderate to high levels of carbon dioxide cause headaches and fatigue, higher concentrations produce nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and loss of consciousness often occurs because excess carbon dioxide uses up space in the air instead of oxygen, creating an environment for asphyxiation. A high concentration of carbon dioxide in a confined space is toxic.

I’ve seen people walking/jogging down the street where there is absolutely no one within a quarter-mile in any direction. It’s dangerous to wear a mask when there is absolutely no possibility of infecting someone or being infected by someone. I’ve even seen people wearing masks in their cars; masks habitually slip over eyes, not to mention passing out from inhaling carbon dioxide, either can cause accidents. People, if you’re forced by the government, please use good common sense when wearing one.

AND to those who haphazardly throw potentially hazardous medical waste (masks, gloves, hand-wipes, etc.) on the ground; litter ends up in storm drains and bodies of water where wildlife mistake these items for food, and lest we forget the people tasked with picking up your precarious discards. Where is your respect for others and the environment? Public shaming and a minimum $1,000 for a first-time offense, double the fine and jail time for additional offenses!!!

UPDATED 5-15-2020 Based on a comment by Mara May 14, 2020 at 1:47 pm

“There actually is evidence that masks helped the Spanish flu epidemic. There is easily found research based evidence. Please research this because you are stating false information.”

Mara, “if masks are so beneficial why do public health officials warn people to remain at least 6 feet apart from one another, even if they’re wearing masks?”

Face masks don’t filter out the particle size of the coronavirus. Any viruses aerosolized in a sneeze or cough will get through the mask. Viruses are about 20400 nm (nanometer) in size (0.00080314961”) and considered organic structures which interact with living organisms. Rather than a living organism, bacteria are larger, about 1000 nm in size (3.937e-5”). They are visible under light microscope. Whereas viruses are infectious particles about 100 times smaller than bacteria and can only be observed by electron microscopy.

A virus is a small infectious agent replicating only inside the living cells of other organisms and only active when inside a host because viruses can’t undergo any chemical reactions of their own outside a host cell, they do not need energy because the host cells take over the needed energy to reproduce the viruses.

It is believed the N95 mask ‘may’ effectively prevent viral spread. These masks, when properly fitted, seal closely to the face and filter out 95% of particles 0.3 microns or larger, however, they’re also difficult to fit correctly. For those reasons, the CDC does not recommend them for general use. [4]

“Even a properly fitted N95 respirator does not completely eliminate the risk of illness or death. The respirator is intended to prevent specific diseases or infections. The respirator is labeled or otherwise represented as filtering surgical smoke or plumes, filtering specific amounts of viruses or bacteria, reducing the amount of and/or killing viruses, bacteria, or fungi, or affecting allergenicity and contains coating technologies unrelated to filtration (e.g., to reduce and or kill microorganisms).” As stated above an organism can be seen only through a microscope. Microorganisms include bacteria, protozoans, and fungi and “can only be observed by electron microscopy”.

CDC

also does not recommend surgical masks. Surgical masks are not regulated, anyone can sell anything and call it a surgical mask. [4] “While a surgical mask may be effective in blocking splashes and large-particle droplets, a face mask, by design, does not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs, sneezes, or certain medical procedures. Surgical masks also do not provide complete protection from germs and other contaminants because of the loose fit between the surface of the face mask and face.” These masks don’t seal against the face, even though they include non-woven polypropylene moisture resistant layers, approximately 70% of the outside air moves through the mask and about 30% travels around the sides… 30% plus 70% = 100% ineffective.

Fabric masks (handkerchief/bandanna), lacking non-woven moisture-repelling layers are too porous to trap any germs allowing air in and around the sides, . They impede only about 2% of airflow. Wearing basic fabric masks over a warm, wet mouth breeds infection rather than deters it.

By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves and travel into the brain. [3]

The World Health Organization (WHO)

[1] discourages mask use: “The wide use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not supported by current evidence and carries uncertainties and critical risks. There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”

There’s been enough research done to be able to confidently say masks wouldn’t be able to stop the spread of infection and they only have a small effect on transmission. We shouldn’t be relying on masks to help us go back to normal. All of this leakage in surgical and fabric masks are why public health officials don’t believe wearing a mask prevents anyone from catching a virus already floating around in the environment because airflow follows the path of least resistance.

Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams

urges the public to stop buying face masks “”They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, face masks actually increase your risk of infection if they aren’t worn properly.”

Dr. William Schaffner, a preventive medicine professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine,

“the rush to buy masks is a “psychological thing.” Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “There is no role for these masks in the community.”

New England Journal of Medicine

[6]“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

[6] “It is clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Expanded masking protocols’ greatest contribution may be to reduce the transmission of anxiety, over and above whatever role they may play in reducing transmission of Covid-19.”

OSHA

[7]Cloth:
“Will not protect the wearer against airborne transmissible infectious agents due to loose fit and lack of seal or inadequate filtration.”

Surgical masks:
“Will not protect the wearer against airborne transmissible infectious agents due to loose fit and lack of seal or inadequate filtration.”

Respirators:
“Require proper training, fit testing, availability of appropriate medical evaluations and monitoring, cleaning, and oversight by a knowledgeable staff member.”

*For those trying to find fault in this source, keep in mind the word “intended.” The masks are “intended” to work, but they don’t. They cannot use they “will” because it’s a lie. Wording is very important. Pay attention and you won’t have to attack everything so quickly. It will save you and I a lot of time.

The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 was much deadlier than the coronavirus pandemic, 50 million people died. Experts reviewing evidence from 1918 concluded flu masks failed to control infection. In 1919, Wilfred Kellogg’s [2] study for the California State Board of Health concluded that mask ordinances “applied forcibly to entire communities” did not decrease cases and deaths, as confirmed by comparisons of cities with widely divergent policies on masking.”

The Woodstock music festival took place in August 1969. The “Hong Kong flu” (H3N2) influenza pandemic lasted between the winter of 1968 and the early months of 1970 and within the 18 months killed an estimated 100,000 people in the U.S. and 1 million worldwide, yet daily life, more or less, proceeded as if it were business as usual. There were no statewide lockdowns or mandatory mask requirements, and large public events, such as the Woodstock music festival, took place as scheduled.

Masks do have one effect: People tend to stay away from those wearing them because “masks and social distancing are the new herd immunity” … By their reasoning: if I’m not wearing a mask, theirs won’t work. … Great scare tactic to continue keeping people socially segregated.

And BTW, the Coronavirus didn’t create a $1.5 trillion student debt crisis, it didn’t make the minimum wage a starvation wage, and it didn’t leave 40% of Americans unable to afford a minor emergency. Trickle-down economics did.

Oh, and FYI, [5] The CDC NOW SAYS CORONAVIRUS ‘DOES NOT SPREAD EASILY’ ON SURFACES. Its guidelines now include a section on ways the virus doesn’t easily spread, including from touching surfaces or objects. Other ways the virus doesn’t easily spread are from animals to people or people to animals. Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration said “there was no evidence to suggest the virus can spread through food or what it’s wrapped in, and that there was no need to wipe down groceries.”

REVIEW OF THE MEDICAL LITERATURE
Key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature establishing that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:

Face mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.

Cowling, B. et al. (2010) “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: A systematic review,” Epidemiology and Infection, 138(4), 449-456. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/epidemiology-and- infection/article/face-masks-to-prevent-transmission-of-influenza-virus-a-systematic- review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05 None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H).

There were no statistically significant differences in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza, laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infections, laboratory-confirmed respiratory infection, and influenza-like illness using N95 respirators and surgical masks. Meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of N95 respirators against laboratory-confirmed bacterial colonization (RR = 0.58, 95% CI 0.43-0.78). The use of N95 respirators compared with surgical masks is not associated with a lower risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”

So, the next time you see someone out and about not wearing a mask, please do not HARASS or BULLY them. You do NOT know their situation or their personal physical or mental health struggles.

After reading all the confirmed data above, and if you want to wear a mask, fine, but please do not become a mask bully and make an already difficult situation even worse for those around you with your nasty looks or your rude remarks.

HAND SANITIZER WARNING

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning the public to stop using the following hand sanitizer products as they tested positive to contain 81% (v/v) methanol and NO ethyl alcohol. Those who have been exposed to hand sanitizer containing methanol should call 911 and seek immediate care. Substantial methanol exposure can result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death. Children accidently ingesting these products and adolescents and adults who drink these products as an alcohol (ethanol) substitute, are most at risk for methanol poisoning. If you have any of these products, the FDA says to dispose of them immediately in appropriate hazardous waste containers. DO NOT flush or pour them down the drain.

Corona Beer, Corona del Mar, Coronavirus

Ok I’ll admit, the Corona Beer and Corona del Mar were just the hook to get you to read another article on SOME EXPERT ADVICE ON CORONAVIRUS by the eminent pathologist James Robb, MD FCAP, FB

A message from Bruce Lipton regarding the Corona virus, March 10, 2020:
Dear Family of Love and Seekers Everywhere,
Coronavirus: Do Not Fear the Bogeyman

The world is currently gripped in fear of the scary coronavirus. Let’s first get one fact clear: If you have ever had a cold or flu in your life, odds are that it was the result of a coronavirus infection. Yes, coronaviruses cause colds.

But we are being programmed with the belief that this particular cold virus is “deadly.” This fear has shut down concerts, conferences, and major public events all over the world. The fear has led to quarantines and closing down of international travel. It has even led to a major scarcity of toilet paper in Australia, where concerned citizens emptied the shelves of this commodity in anticipation that they will be walled up in their homes with this infection.

First, how deadly is this version of the virus? Yes, there have been corona-related deaths reported with the statistics suggesting that 2% of the infected population dies. Wow! That number is almost 1% more deaths than are attributed to any conventional flu the world experiences. What is misleading is the fear that everyone who carries this virus may die from their cold. This is simply untrue! The health of almost all the victims of this coronavirus was already compromised before they were infected.

For example, the following information was provided by the news in regard to the 6 patients that died of the virus in the state of Washington last week (I added the bold print):

Washington State

Six people have died in Washington and health officials have identified 18 cases.

Four of the cases in King County were linked to the Life Care nursing facility in Kirkland. More than 50 residents and staff at the facility are being tested.

The deaths announced Monday, according to health officials, included:

-A male in his 70s, who lived at LifeCare. He had underlying health conditions and died Sunday.

-A female resident of LifeCare in her 70s. She also had underlying health conditions and died Sunday.

-A woman in her 80s, who was already reported as in critical condition at EvergreenHealth, died Sunday.

-A Snohomish County resident at EvergreenHealth also died but details of that patient have not been given.

Two previously reported deaths included a man in his 70s who had underlying health conditions and had been a resident of LifeCare. He died at EvergreenHealth on Feb. 29.

The other was a man in his 50s with underlying health conditions. He was admitted with serious respiratory issues and tested positive for the virus. He died at EvergreenHealth Medical Center in Kirkland.

As emphasized in this report, the health of all those that died with the coronavirus was already compromised. Healthy people get cold and flu symptoms, while those already sick and near death’s door may experience the “Grim Reaper” when infected by the virus. True, sick people are more vulnerable to the virus; healthy people really have nothing to fear.

As presented in The Biology of Belief, stress is responsible for up to 90% of illness, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. When an individual is in stress, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) shuts down the immune system to conserve the body’s energy for running away from the perceived stressor, that proverbial “saber-toothed tiger.” Stress hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system, that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.

The conclusion is clear: The fear of the coronavirus is more deadly than the virus itself!

The media (perhaps in conjunction with the pharmaceutical industry) is compromising people’s health using the fear card! This is the result of negative thinking (the nocebo effect) which is the complete opposite of the placebo effect manifest through positive thinking! If you make efforts to stay healthy, with good nutrition, exercise, taking vitamins and supplements, and more importantly, avoiding stress (e.g., the “fear” of the virus), even if you do get infected with the virus, you will likely only end up with a cold and/or slight fever.

If you are someone with a compromised immune system, it is supportive to surround yourself with loving family and friends, nature, and positive thoughts as well as any other nutrition and vitamins that you may already be taking for your health and wellbeing. Following your intuition about what is best for you is key! The point here is that no matter who you are and what your state of health, you will only benefit from steering clear of the fear and supporting yourself in whatever way feels best to you.

Please remember the truth of quantum physics, the most valid of all sciences on the planet: Consciousness is creating your life experiences! Are you being conscious of disease … or of health?

Wishing you all Health, Happiness and Harmony.

With Love and Light,
Bruce

Bruce Harold Lipton, is an American developmental biologist who supported the theory that gene expression could be influenced by environmental factors, i.e. environmental factors have a greater impact on health than genetic research has previously determined.

Authored by James Robb, MD FCAP, FB

Dear Colleagues, As some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.
Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.

7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!
What I have stocked in preparation for the pandemic spread to the US:

NOTE: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land is infectious for about a week on average – everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

1) Latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas.

2) Stock up now with disposable surgical masks and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth (We touch our nose/mouth 90X/day without knowing it!). This is the only way this virus can infect you – it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth – it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

3) Stock up now with hand sanitizers and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

4) Stock up now with zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! Jim

Columbus NEVER landed on American Soil, NOT in 1492, NOT Ever

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

One cannot ‘discover’ what was never lost in the first place! Unlike Christopher Columbus, Native people always knew where they were, right here on Turtle Island. It has been estimated there were upwards of 100 million Indigenous people living here at the time of the Europeans who found hundreds of different culturally, richly textures settled peoples scatters all across the land, most with very complex and sophisticated matriarchal social/political organizations and belief systems. Voyagers finally showed up, their names were the one extolled in your White history books, not the names of First Nations people who got the Europeans where they wanted to go!

Columbus quite literally landed in what is now known as the Bahamas and later Hispaniola, present-day Haiti and the Dominican Republic. So why do American’s celebrate this abominable man? Let’s just ignore the fact millions of humans already inhabited this land until later and look at the historical facts.

In the first place, Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson; however, Columbus’ voyages led to the first lasting of European contact with America, inaugurating a period of European exploration and colonization of foreign lands until present-day. Therefore Columbus has had an enormous impact on the historical development of the modern Western world.

Forget those myths perpetuated about Columbus attempting to prove the earth is round because he got the math wrong and actually thought the earth was pear-shaped. He saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of the spreading of the Christian religion and finding gold to repay his debt to the crown.

The Nina and Pinta were not the names of two of Columbus’ three ships. In 15th-century Spain, ships were traditionally named after saints. Salty sailors, however, bestowed less-than-sacred nicknames upon their vessels. Mariners dubbed one of the three ships the Pinta, Spanish for “the painted one” or “prostitute.” The Santa Clara was nicknamed the Nina in honor of its owner, Juan Nino. Although Santa Maria is called by its official name, its nickname was La Gallega, after the province of Galicia in which it was built.

In 1493 when Columbus arrived in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Caribbean islands, there were eight million Indigenous Taino residents. That number, within a mere three years, was reduced to just three million.

Upon arrival, Columbus and his expedition met the Arawaks, Tainos and Lucayans, all friendly *Indians*, according to Columbus’ writings. When Columbus first saw the Native Arawaks who came to greet him and his crew he spoke with a peaceful and admiring tone. Impressed with the friendliness of the native people, Columbus seized control of the land in the name of Spain.

Columbus also helped himself to some locals. In his journal he wrote:

“As soon as I arrived in the Indies, on the first Island which I found, I took some of the natives by force in order that they might learn and might give me information of whatever there is in these parts. They … brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things… They willingly traded everything they owned… They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features…. They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane. They would make fine servants…. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”

After several months in the Caribbean, on January 13, 1493, two Natives were murdered during trading. Columbus, who had described the Natives as gentle people wrote “(they are) evil and I believe they are from the island of Caribe, and that they eat men.” He also described them as “savage cannibals, with dog-like noses that drink the blood of their victims.”

Columbus introduced syphilis to Europe when he sold Native sex slaves to his men. Columbus wrote to a friend in 1500, “girls from 9-10 … are … in demand.” After Columbus’s first trip to the Caribbean, he returned to Spain and left behind 39 men who went ahead and helped themselves to Native women. Upon his return, the men were all dead.

With 1,200 more soldiers at his disposal, rape and pillaging became rampant as well as tolerated by Columbus. This is supported by a reported close friend of Columbus, Michele de Cuneo who wrote the first disturbing account of a relationship between himself and a Native female gifted to him by Columbus. Cuneo, wrote

“When our caravels … were to leave for Spain, we gathered … 1,600 male and female Indians and these embarked (with us) … on February 17, 1495 he wrote “While I was in the boat I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me, and with whom, having taken her into my cabin, she being naked according to their custom, I conceived desire to take pleasure. I wanted to put my desire into execution but she did not want it and treated me with her fingernails in such a manner that I wished I had never begun. But seeing that (to tell you the end of it all), I took a rope and thrashed her well, for which she raised such unheard-of screams that you would not have believed your ears. Finally, we came to an agreement in such manner that I can tell you that she seemed to have been brought up in a school of harlots.”

Repeated accounts of cruelty and murder included testing the sharpness of blades on Native people by cutting them in half, beheading them in contests and throwing them into vats of boiling soap. Many of these red men, women, and children were

“roasted on spits,”

and the invaders

“hacked the children into pieces.”

Spanish historian and Catholic priest Bartolome de las Casas witnessed much of the carnage and said Columbus ordered his men

“ to cut off the legs of children who ran from them in order to test the sharpness of their blades.” and “Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight as no age can parallel. My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature that now I tremble as I write.”

Columbus’s men would make bets as to who would slit a man in two, or cut off his head in one blow. There are also accounts of suckling infants being lifted from their mother’s breasts, only to be dashed headfirst into large rocks. There was also a practice known as the “Montería Infernal”, the infernal chase, or manhunt, in which Natives were hunted by war-dogs. These dogs wore armor and had been fed human flesh, were a fierce match for the Indians. If his crew began running out of meat for their vicious dogs,

“Arawak babies were killed for dog food.”

Live babies were also fed to these war dogs as sport, sometimes in front of horrified parents.

Spaniards removed men from villages to work in gold mines and colonial plantations. This kept the Taíno from planting the crops which had fed them for centuries. They began to starve; many thousands fell prey to smallpox, measles and other European diseases for which they had no immunity; some committed suicide to avoid subjugation; hundreds fell in fighting with the Spaniards, while untold numbers fled to remote regions beyond colonial control. And on his return to Europe Columbus brought back the first Indigenous people as slaves all but wiping out the people to the Caribbean, leaving very few Indigenous Natives after 50 years; as many as three million people, approximately 85 percent of the Taíno population had vanished by the early 1500s

By Columbus’ second voyage to the New World in 1495, he brought cannons and attack dogs. If a native resisted slavery, he would cut off a nose or an ear. If slaves tried to escape, Columbus had them burned alive. Other times, he sent attack dogs to hunt them down, and the dogs would tear off the arms and legs of the screaming natives while they were still alive. He was so desperate for gold to repay the Spanish bankers which financed him Columbus refused to believe there was almost no gold on the island so he forced Natives to work in gold mines until exhaustion. Those who opposed were beheaded or had their ears cut off and he forced the island’s Taino inhabitants to bring him a ‘hawk’s bell’ full of gold dust every three months. Those who complied were given a ‘token’ to wear around their necks. Those who didn’t, as Columbus’s son Fernando reported, were

“punished by having their hands cut off” and were “left to bleed to death.”

In two years’ time, approximately 250,000 Indians on Haiti were dead.

In August 1504 Colonists complained to Governor Francisco De Bobadilla of the monarchy about mismanagement and a royal commissioner was dispatched to Hispaniola to arrest Columbus and his two brothers, slapped them into chains, and shipped them off to Spain to answer for their crimes against the Arawaks. But the King and Queen of Spain, their treasury filling up with gold, pardoned Columbus and let him go free, but by then only about 100,000 Taino’s remained alive.

Columbus derived most of his income from slavery, De Las Casas noted. In fact, Columbus was the first slave trader in the Americas. As the native slaves died off, they were replaced with black slaves. Columbus’ son became the first African slave trader in 1505.

Tens of thousands of Indigenous people were killed because they would not convert to a religion completely foreign to them, one of which they understood neither the content nor the language being spoken to them. Columbus was a tyrant, a murderer and nothing short of a pimp and pedophile, he didn’t discover, he invaded, destroyed and annihilated. Columbus didn’t just marginalize Indigenous people he mutilated and nearly decimated them because in his eyes 1st Nation Indigenous peoples of the Americas stood in the way of European ‘progress’ hampering western expansion. What followed was rape, murder, destruction and all forms of genocide, land, resource destruction and theft.

The portrayal of the man with 3 ships who came to befriend the Natives is an utter fallacy. The Whitewashed White romantic myth is a complete falsehood because one cannot ‘discover’ what was never lost in the first place! Unlike Christopher Columbus, 1st Nation Native people always knew where they were, right here on Turtle Island.

It has been estimated there were upwards of 100 million Indigenous people living in the area we call America’s. At the time of the Europeans found hundreds of different culturally, richly textures settled people’s scatters all across the land, most with very complex and sophisticated matriarchal social/political organizations and belief systems. Voyagers showed up, their names are the ones extolled in your White history books, not the names of First Nations people who got the Europeans where they wanted to go!

Winona LaDuke ~ Columbus was a perpetrator of genocide. He was a slave trader, a thief, a pirate and most certainly NOT a hero. To celebrate Columbus is to congratulate the process and the history of invasion.

Who Will Protect Her?

Concerns have resurfaced about the safety of a young woman who filmed the moments after a white ex-Dallas cop shot Black PwC associate Botham Jean following the death of another witness in the case. Joshua Brown, a Black 28-year-old man, was shot to death Friday at his Dallas apartment complex 10 days after he testified Sept. 25 that he saw Amber Guyger on the phone in the hallway moments after she shot Jean. Continue reading

I was sickened by Botham Jean’s murder,the police cover-up, the protection of Amber Guyger, then to top it off, Judge Tammy Kemp’s totally inappropriate actions, despite Dallas County sheriff’s policy prohibiting contact with defendants. Now Ronnie Babbs is living the same kind of hell, panic, and horror Joshua Brown did, and his fears came to fruition.

My 1st thought was the Witness Protection Program, but after extensive research, I’m not sure if this would be the right choice for her; cut off from family and friends, the life she knew and knows. Do I have an answer? No. You can’t trust the police, the police murdered Botham and they probably murdered Joshua. Look what happened to the Michael Brown witnesses. Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died of alleged suicides.

Who will protect Ms. Babbs. #NBPP?

Ms. Babbs is a terrified young woman, and the exploration of the Witness Protection Program… ‘To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism, to steal from many is research’ the following information is based on several articles and not solely limited to the 3 links below.

When a witness decides to enter the Witness Protection Program (WITSEC), U.S. Marshals immediately arrive at the home to whisk witness away. Parents, spouses, children, siblings, and even mistresses are all taken to an orientation center. Some witnesses are prepared and wait for the Marshals with small bags; other surprised families leave pasta sauce still simmering on the stove. Administrators keep witnesses from taking anything which reveals their identity: family albums, diaries, even pictures and notes drawn by their kids.

WITSEC relocates witnesses to a place where they’d be comfortable, find employment and take care of their health and safety needs. Administrators work to make a new person exist. Families get legally sealed name changes and receive new social security cards, birth certificates, and drivers’ licenses. The program also works with doctors and school administrators to transfer medical records and report cards. Once a witness is relocated under their assumed name, their primary point of contact is a special U.S. Marshal known as a Witness Inspector who helps them ease into the new location, assisting them in establishing a credible-yet-concocted “history” for them through front companies and other bogus entities used to appear legitimate.

Relocated families receive a few thousand dollars a month stipend for a family, phased out after witnesses have time to look for a job. They also get temporary funding for housing and other basic expenses, which is only enough for a basic apartment and a used car. Since the government refuses to provide a fake credit history, witnesses struggle to secure products and services when companies demand financial information.

Witnesses’ memories are off-limits in their new life. They’re coached on how best to change the topic when people ask about their past. Unable to share anything honestly, witnesses struggle to make friends. A number of witnesses describe talking with family, who know their full identity, and the rest of the world, which does not, as switching between two different worlds. Some talk about themselves under their prior name in the third person.

Also, it’s not ordinary these days for adults or children not to use social networks, however, the risk is amplified by the increasing number of digital traces our lives create. In addition, companies and organizations now have much higher expectations for finding a paper trail / digital record for any individual, making it harder to create a credible new identity.

Life for relocated witnesses has proven remarkably safe, however, they experience the burden of constant lying and missing family events. Yes, the Marshals Service occasionally facilitates communication between relocated families and a few of the friends and family left behind, but for the most part, they’re completely cut off from family, and only in exceptional circumstances do people ever see them. Nor can witnesses ever return home. Many witnesses live in fear of being discovered and worry about a child letting their identity slip. Yet the hardest part of witness relocation is the way it seems to permanently alienate witnesses from both the rest of the world and themselves.

De’Von Bailey and the Supreme Court’s decision in Tennessee v. Garner 471 U.S.

Supreme Court’s decision in Tennessee v. Garner 471 U.S.1 involved a pair of police officers who shot a 15-year-old boy as he fled from a burglary. (He’d stolen $10 and a purse from a house.) The court ruled law enforcement couldn’t shoot every felon who tried to escape. What’s “objectively reasonable” changes as the circumstances change. The moment they no longer present a threat, you need to stop shooting” Supreme Court Justice Klinger said. Officers can’t justify their conduct based on whether their intentions were good. They have to demonstrate their actions were “objectively reasonable,” given the circumstances.

The Supreme Court Justices held deadly force “may not be used unless necessary to prevent the escape and the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious bodily harm to the officer or others. A police officer may not seize an unarmed, nondangerous suspect by shooting him dead… however…Where the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a threat of serious physical harm, either to the officer or to others, it is not constitutionally unreasonable to prevent escape by using deadly force.

Video evidence released today demonstrates De’Von Bailey was not presenting any threat to the officers who shot and killed him while he attempted to flee. In addition, there is not a shred of evidence De’Von presented an imminent threat or risk that he was imminently about to use a gun to harm anyone else. Instead, it is clear De’Von was merely trying to get away from the situation. Even if the officers had legitimate concern a suspect might escape, the law strictly specifies it is only when the officers have evidence a person is in imminent risk of death or serious bodily harm may an officer use deadly force, a gun, to stop a person from fleeing.”

Lawrence Stoker, Bailey’s cousin said he was the other suspect in the robbery call and was at the scene when Bailey was shot. “He got shot at least three, four times. We did not rob anyone and Bailey did not reach for a gun. Instead, Bailey tried to run away. He didn’t get more than two feet away … and (police) started shooting. He didn’t turn around and grab his pocket or anything.” According to autopsy results, Bailey was shot four times: three times in the back and once in his arm.

Lawrence Stoker, was questioned after the shooting. Stocker didn’t know his cousin had a gun until it fell out of the pocket of his basketball shorts as he lay motionless in the street AFTER being shot. Three witnesses back up the cousin’s account as does the video from a home security system showing and police bodycam video EXACTLY what happened.

Real ID ~ Each State Has Its’ Own Deadline

Eventually all domestic flyers will need a REAL ID-compliant license or other form of identification to fly. The REAL ID Act establishes minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for certain purposes driver’s licenses and identification cards from states not meeting the Act’s minimum standards. The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.

REAL ID is hacker-bait and puts personal and national security at risk, complicates travel, admittance to federal facilities and you’ll need a to purchase a license or ID even if yours is still valid and doesn’t require renewal for a couple of years. AND not complying can get your driver’s license or state ID revoked.

The REAL ID Act requires state motor vehicle divisions to open their database to all other states. It’s a hub and spoke system, a decentralized “distributed database” with a central hub, 50 state spokes and a pointer system. States must send a list of data to the hub, which acts as a central index of all drivers and ID holders. The system is called “State to State Exchange”

The FBI is spending over $1 billion to create the world’s largest biometric database and the driver’s license itself is a red herring. The goal of TSA (Transportation Security Administration) and DHS (Homeland Security) is to eliminate the need for ID documentation and focus on the use of biometrics. REAL ID is an unconstitutional power grab eliminating state’s rights and giving the federal government control over all citizens identification, movement, and access to goods and services. Real ID is a national ID, yet both Interpol and Nlets (International Justice and Public Safety Network are using the standards of the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for collection and the sharing of biometrics. The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) has also adopted the ISO standard(s). When it comes to identification, it does not matter whether an individual is in Paris, Texas or Paris, France, Los Ángeles, Chile or Los Angeles California the individual can be identified by the use of facial recognition software and the use of international telecommunication systems/networks. Nlets acknowledges it does share biometric information/data/samples with countries all over the world and one of the primary sources of information provided is state DMV databases.

At this point in time, our privacy has actually been somewhat protected by the fact all collected information still remains scattered across many different databases. But once the government, landlords, employers, or other powerful forces gain the ability to draw together all this information, our privacy will be destroyed. This is exactly what a national identity system would facilitate. A national ID facilitates tracking. When a police officer or security guard scans your ID card with a pocket bar-code reader, it will likely create a permanent record including, but not limited to your name, license number, the date and time as well as your location.

How long before office buildings, doctors’ offices, gas stations, highway tolls, subways, and buses incorporate the ID card into their security or payment systems for greater efficiency? The end result could be a situation where citizens’ movements inside their own country are monitored and recorded through these “internal passports.”

DMV offices will continue to appear as state offices, but under Real ID Act DMV offices become agents acting on behalf of the federal government charged with administering are forcing clerks to become federal immigration officials; verifying citizenship status and adjudicating who can and cannot be given a license despite the complexity of numerous categories and complex technicalities comprising immigration laws. A REAL ID amounts to an internal passport moving State DMVs away from licensing drivers to targeting immigrants who can’t prove they’re in enumerated lawful immigration status through verified documentary evidence, inevitably causing discrimination against those who may “look” or “sound” “foreign”.

Because of the new document requirements, the labor-intensive complexities involved in verifying documents, and the need for DMVs to reprocess the bulk of the population already possessing driver’s licenses, individuals will receive slower service, longer lines, and the need for repeat visits to the DMV. Out of a population of 290 million residents, there are approximately 194 million licensed drivers. In addition to the millions of children, teenagers, and the elderly are particularly likely to lack licenses. The complicated yet often ambiguous maze of requirements created by the Act will throw many unlucky people into a bureaucratic quagmire as they try to overcome inflexible verification requirements, bureaucratic errors or mismatches, lost documents, unique circumstances, or other problems. Some individuals, inevitably, will find themselves unable to obtain these new identity papers. In addition, for many low-income workers, taking off time work is difficult and expensive, the need for repeated trips to the DMV and other agencies such as registrar’s offices in search of birth certificates would be an even greater burden. And because the Act’s mandates would cost states billions of dollars which Congress refuses to pay, fees on drivers licenses will inevitably rise, and in all probability, State taxes will continue to escalate.

By definitively turning driver’s licenses into national identity documents, Real ID would have a tremendously destructive impact on privacy. The creation of a single interlinked database as well as the requirement that each DMV store copies of all the birth certificates and other documents presented will create a one-stop shop for identity thieves. Failure to include adequate privacy and security safeguards for this massive national identification database. Real ID will ultimately become a key infrastructure for and dramatically accelerate, the surveillance society already being constructed in the United States. Once put in place, it will be used more and more for the routine tracking, monitoring, and regulation of individuals’ movements and activities, exploiting the private sector, and expose individuals to a greater risk of identity theft and other security risks. The centralized database will inevitably, over time, become the repository for more and more data on individuals over an ever-wider set of purposes. The ability of hackers to gain access to the personal information of over 240 million US Citizens. The system is only as good as its weakest link and DHS admits there are minimum standards required of the states. As it is, nearly 10 million people, or 5% of U.S. adults, were victims of identity theft. The security problems with creating concentrated databases have been repeatedly demonstrated over the years, most recently in the rash of cases where information held by commercial database companies has fallen into the hands of identity thieves or others. AND if a thief has obtained someone’s REAL ID compliant state ID, it can be hard for the victim of identity theft to verify their own identity when traveling, moving to a new state, getting a job, or conducting business with a financial institution or government agency.

Remember, if you can’t provide an acceptable form of identification, you won’t be permitted through security checkpoints which means your expensive airline or train ticket is money down the drain; a missed court date may constitute a failure to appear warrant and may eventually even hinder people from picking up medical prescriptions, entering national parks and Social Security offices,

Instead of preventing disaster, Real ID is only bringing more issues by dividing people into documented/ undocumented and doesn’t create a safer atmosphere nor will it prevent terrorism in public spaces.

The Walk

by Matthew Borke
Standing Rock Stories ~ February 26th 2017

It was 3 days since militarized forces raided Oceti Sakowin on Feb. 23rd, 46 of us were arrested and Keisha. Thanks to bail funds, we were released in less than 24 hours. They claimed all our digital devices as evidence, bulldozed our homes, and impounded our vehicles.

The word came into Standing Rock Res that they were preparing to raid yet again. And roadblocks began to appear.

So I began to walk back to Mandan where our arraignment was scheduled. They allowed Keisha a seat in the Patty Wagon the first time. I was not so sure that would happen again. For the first raid, they abandoned all the animals as the officer expressed to me that the decision was preordained.

Keisha, the official camp mascot of Standing Rock; Keisha was the only dog to get arrested with her owner Matthew Borke

So I began to walk towards the roadblock on 1806. Knowing that 1806 is the shortest route, and it was February in North Dakota. I was not sure how far it was, as GPS was no longer available without Digital Devices.

Soon, I approached the roadblock at the Cannon Ball Bridge. A National Parks Ranger From San Francisco got into full riot gear before approaching me with a BIA officer.

I expressed to them, my need to get to court. And they were blocking the shortest, safest route. Several other uniforms began to appear. I expressed the need to understand why they would not let me take the safest route. And know that the “trouble” was dispersed, why would they say the route was dangerous? Another officer called for a vehicle with the cage in it. I thought, how thoughtful to think about Keisha. But then realized, the cage was for me… I even asked if they could give me a ride to the other side of the “danger” zone. They assured me, that if i was to enter any of the vehicles, they would take me back to jail. Although, it was where court was. So I asked the Park Ranger, a known deputized BIA agent, that needed some type of paperwork to reference in my court case. Even a business card. Which no officer was willing to provide. So he wrote down his name and badge number on a piece of paper. It Said, Officer Corn. I was shocked and replied, “You’re from the Corn Family, I’m from The Corn Family Too” (Which is True). He did not appear amused. So I agreed to take the long way around.

A BIA and State Trooper agents “marshaled” me back to the Pit Stop Road Block. Making sure i would not turn into Cheyenne River Camp. No stopping, or breaking, straight out the roadblocks they claimed.

When arriving to the Pit Stop Road Block, i politely asked the State Trooper if he would me rather, walk in the center of the road, or go around the roadblock. he responded that he no longer cared but it sparked a small conversation.

The BIA agent behind me, got on his loudspeaker and began cracking jokes about Keisha and her bones. I chuckled, which caused the state trooper to react and say, “Are you Laughing At Me?” I expressed the BIA actions and it made for a decent ice breaker. The officer began to express to me why the officers took off their badges. And told me, “I remember you from the Raid. You were arrested for trespassing.” I told him that’s incorrect. He expressed again his truth.

“Officer, I was arrested for “Interfering with a Government Function. Would you like to see my arrest papers? This is why we have a conflict of interest. I know this to be true yet your telling me otherwise. While I have your attention, You enforce Code, not Law. What sections of the Codes do you study?”

“Uh, I’m a State Trooper, so I study Penal Codes and Traffic Codes.”
“You do not study Safety Codes?”
“No”
“So Why then Does It Say Safety On Your Vehicle?”
“Wow, your actually coming at this rather peacefully.”
“Well Thank you”

We carried on with discussion a little longer as he talked about how much Fecal Matter was in Camp. I told him it was very muddy and attempted to explain to him the process of the composting toilets that we built. Which definitely was a necessity since the porta potties froze back in early December.

He Claimed:
“I slipped in it.”
“Are you sure, it is rather muddy. Did you test it?”
“I Don’t need to. I still have a bag of it in the back of my squad car.”

At this time, i realized that our conversations were over. He had a garbage bag from our composting toilets in the trunk of his car… Apparently to show his buddies…

“uh, Keisha and i gotta go. We have a long walk ahead of us.”

The Lobotomy of Rosemary Kennedy

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe


Rose Marie “Rosemary” Kennedy was the oldest daughter born to Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy. She was a sister of President of the United States John F. Kennedy and Senators Robert F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy. Rose and Joe Kennedy tried to erase all detail about their handicapped daughter. Many do not know her sad tale.

September 13, 1918: When Rose Kennedy went into labor with Rosemary, her third child, the nurse who was caring for her was reluctant to deliver a baby without a physician on hand. Though the nurse had the necessary training, when the doctor’s arrival was delayed she demanded Rose “hold her legs together tightly in the hope of delaying the baby’s birth.” When that failed, she resorted to “holding the baby’s head and forcing it back into the birth canal for two excruciating hours.”

As Rosemary grew into toddlerhood, Rose noticed she “was not like the others.” By kindergarten, Rosemary was called “retarded,” in the lingo of the times, and such children were considered defective. For Joe Kennedy, obsessed with the family image, it was a disaster. Rosemary never proceeded mentally beyond third or fourth-grade intelligence and she was packed off to a boarding school for misfits.


The family did their best to incorporate her into their daily lives, taking her sailing and making sure she was always asked to dance at parties. But as Rosemary got older, she began to have tantrums that sometimes turned violent. At the same time, her voluptuous figure was attracting male attention, and Joe became concerned: an unwanted pregnancy in the family could damage his sons’ political future.

Dr. James Watts carried out a frontal lobotomy on Rosemary Kennedy’s brain at a facility in upstate New York in November 1941. Rosemary’s father, Joe Kennedy scheduled Rosemary for a lobotomy without his wife’s knowledge; an experimental procedure meant to make mentally ill patients more docile. The surgery, involved drilling holes on both sides of Rosemary’s head, inserting a spatula into her cranium near the frontal lobes and turning and scraping. Throughout the entire procedure, Rosemary was awake, speaking with doctors and reciting poems to nurses. They knew the procedure was over when she stopped speaking. A psychiatrist present at the lobotomy asked Rosemary to tell him stories and repeat the months of the year. The doctor kept scraping away brain tissue until Rosemary could no longer talk. The surgery was botched and Rosemary emerged almost completely disabled.

Following the lobotomy, Rosemary could barely walk and knew only a few words. Since Rosemary could no longer speak or walk. She was moved to an institution and spent months in physical therapy before she regained movement, and even then it was only partially in one arm. She would spend most of her life hidden away from the world and even her own family. After housing her in a psychiatric facility in upstate New York for seven years, Joe ordered his daughter sent to Saint Coletta and never saw her again. Her siblings didn’t see her for two decades.

Rosemary Kennedy spent 20 years in the institution, unable to speak, walk, or see her family. It wasn’t until after Joe suffered a massive stroke her mother Rose went to go see her daughter again. In a panicked rage, Rosemary attacked her, unable to express herself any other way. It seemed, despite all the covering up, she still remembered her mother and what had been done to her.

After being reunited with her family, Rosemary Kennedy lived out the rest of her life in Saint Coletta’s, a residential care facility in Jefferson, Wisconsin, until her death in 2005 at 86 years of age.

The Kennedy’s, having realized what they had done began to champion rights for the mentally disabled. John F. Kennedy would use his presidency to sign the Maternal and Child Health and Mental Retardation Planning Amendment to the Social Security Act, the precursor to the Americans with Disabilities Act, which his brother Ted pushed for during his time as a senator. Eunice Kennedy, JFK and Rosemary’s sister also founded the Special Olympics in 1962, to champion the achievements and abilities of the physically and mentally disabled.

Theft of DNA Ownership Rights

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

“DISCOVER ANCESTORS. STRENGTHEN FAMILY TIES. UNDERSTAND YOUR LIFE.”

Aided by venture capital and a flood of savvy marketing, Ancestry LLC has grown to become the world’s largest DNA testing conglomerate. Since 2012, it has lured more than 9 million people to spit into tubes and add their genetic code to the world’s largest private database of DNA. It has also banked away the world’s largest collection of human spittle, numbering in the hundreds of gallons.

In the age of Facebook and Google, consumers seem comfortable surrendering their personal information to corporations which collect and convert non-revenue generating assets into sources of revenue. But Ancestry and other DNA testing companies have added an audacious tweak: Consumers are now paying to hand over their genetic code, their most sensitive individual identifier, to companies monetizing it far into the future.

Ancestry.com takes DNA ownership rights from customers and their relatives. Giving them your DNA sample does not just affect you, it also puts your family and relatives at risk. According to their legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. DNA and genetic data Ancestry collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years.

There are three significant provisions in the Ancestry DNA Privacy Policy and Terms of Service to consider on behalf of yourself and your genetic relatives: (1) the perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use your DNA; (2) the warning that DNA information may be used against “you or a genetic relative”; (3) your waiver of legal rights.

By submitting DNA you agree to “grant AncestryDNA and the Ancestry Group Companies a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide, transferable license to use your DNA, and any DNA you submit for any person from whom you obtained legal authorization as described in this Agreement, and to use, host, sublicense and distribute the resulting analysis to the extent and in the form or context we deem appropriate on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known, or hereafter developed or discovered.”

Basically, Ancestry.com gets to use or distribute your DNA for any research or commercial purpose it decides and doesn’t have to pay you, or your heirs, a dime. Furthermore, Ancestry.com takes this royalty-free license in perpetuity (for all time) and can distribute the results of your DNA tests anywhere in the world and with any technology which exists, or will ever be invented. With this single contractual provision, customers are granting Ancestry.com the broadest possible rights to own and exploit their genetic information.

Terms also require customers to confirm that, “You understand that by providing any DNA to us, you acquire no rights in any research or commercial products that may be developed by AncestryDNA that may relate to or otherwise embody your DNA.” Essentially, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. And, you can commercialize your own DNA for money, but Ancestry.com is also allowed to monetize your DNA for millions of dollars and doesn’t have to compensate you.

Even if you’ve never used Ancestry.com, but one of your genetic relatives has, the company may already own identifiable portions of your DNA. Buried in the “Informed Consent” section, which is incorporated into the Terms of Service, Ancestry.com warns customers, “it is possible that information about you or a genetic relative could be revealed, such as that you or a relative are carriers of a particular disease. That information could be used by insurers to deny you insurance coverage, by law enforcement agencies to identify you or your relatives, and in some places, the data could be used by employers to deny employment.”

The Ancestry.com Terms of Service also warns that genetic information in its possession can be used by state or federal law enforcement agencies “to identify you or your relatives.” With the rise of forensic evidence in criminal investigations, DNA is often considered incontrovertible evidence. To propel the use of DNA evidence in criminal investigations and prosecutions, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) operates the national Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database.

Ancestry.com takes no responsibility. By consenting to the AncestryDNA Terms and Conditions, “you or a genetic relative” agree to hold the company harmless for any damages that AncestryDNA may cause unintentionally or purposefully.

In the event you or your genetic information cause harm, you agree to “defend, indemnify and hold harmless AncestryDNA, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees).” And customers beware, “you may be liable to others as well as to us if your account is used in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.” That means you could end up owing money to Ancestry.com, its attorneys, and others.

The final indignity for Ancestry.com customers is that they must waive fundamental legal rights by agreeing to mandatory binding arbitration. With the exception of intellectual property rights disputes and certain small claims, Ancestry.com customers must pursue their disputes through arbitration, rather than court. In arbitration, the established legal rules of discovery, evidence, and trial by jury do not exist.

Turning over your DNA means a loss of complete ownership and control. Ancestry.com customers should also know they’re giving up the genetic privacy of themselves and their relatives.

This information also applies to 23andMe and will also apply to any other DNA testing corporation.

As of Jan. 15, 2019 an ancestry report from 23andMe.com, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline now owns your genetic identity. Human DNA has now become a commodity, with 23andMe the world’s largest database of genetic code serving as the “new frontier” for pioneering drug-makers. British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline purchased a $300 million share in the genealogy company, which promises to tell you your ancestry in exchange for your DNA. But if people are concerned about their social security numbers being stolen, they should be even more concerned about their genetic information being misused. This information is never 100% safe. The risk is magnified when one organization shares it with a second organization. When information moves from one place to another, there’s always a chance for it to be intercepted by unintended third parties. As genetic profiling technologies evolve, 23andMe is serving as a translation service, turning living bodies into code that can be aggregated into big data. This big data represents big profit for big pharma, who can use it to create experimental drugs which can be marketed to consumers based on their genetic profiles. The FDA warns this includes an inherent risk of diagnoses and prescriptions based on false positives or false negatives for certain genetic traits.

23andMe can keep and sell its customers’ genetic information to others because consumers consent to the sale of their anonymous and aggregate information just by purchasing the product and agreeing to its privacy statement. The company can also sell deidentified individual-level data if the research consent document is signed.

They recently announced the drug company Genetech offered to pay up to $60 million to use its database to conduct Parkinson’s research. And the fact 23andMe can sell data puts a worrying spin on the proposed changes to consent for federally funded human research.

At the moment, federally funded researchers and private companies have the same standards for consent: If human biospecimens are not “identifiable,” they don’t have to ask for consent to use them for research.

REMEMBER:

Ancestry.com and 23andMe market their DNA kits with promises that tug at the heartstrings. Unless customers request otherwise, Ancestry adds people’s DNA data to its proprietary database, therefore, you are not just taking the test for you, you are taking it for the whole family. People must understand, turning over their DNA means a loss of complete ownership and control. Ancestry’s terms and conditions are long, and somewhat boring, but people should read them. They make a big deal of stating you own your DNA. But they are taking a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free license to do what they want with your DNA and your actual genetic sample they keep in storage. Ancestry allows customers to request their DNA analysis be erased from the company’s database after results are received, and request destruction of their remaining biological sample. BUT it is a two-step process, and customers must read deep into the company’s privacy statement to learn how to do it. Requests for DNA data elimination can be made online, BUT customers MUST call its support center to request destruction of their biological sample.

However, future owners could change privacy protections, including Ancestry’s promise not to share personal data with insurance companies. Ancestry’s terms and conditions state “We have the right to modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service at any time.”

ANCESTRY.COM was founded by a pair of Brigham Young University graduates in the 1990s and was one of the early internet start-ups allowing customers to build their family trees online, accessing troves of information the company assembled. Paul B. Allen, one of the founders said it makes sense a family-tree internet company would arise in Utah, where the Mormon church has long kept extensive family history records. “This is the mother lode of genealogical research”.

Thirty years later, Ancestry is still based in Utah but has mushroomed into a multinational company operating in more than 30 countries, pulling in $1 billion in revenue in 2017. Its headquarters in Lehi, south of Salt Lake City, is home to 1,100 of the company’s 1,600 employees. The building features a display of lanterns, descending through several floors, meant to resemble DNA strands.

To really grasp the company’s rapid growth, one needs to visit one of Ancestry’s contractor labs, where the company sends customer’s genetic samples for analysis. One of these labs is in La Jolla, Calif., owned by Illumina, a leading company in sequencing and genotyping DNA. The kits and spit tubes Ancestry sends to Illumina do not have people’s names or addresses which is the only identifying marker reconnecting the results with individual customers. Like other DNA testing companies, Ancestry uses spit for genetic analysis because its an easy way for consumers to provide their DNA. Saliva contains white blood cells and cells from the inner lining of people’s mouths. A line of workers remove spit tubes from the kits, scanning their bar codes and checking for defects. Illumina isolates the DNA, then goes through a multi-step process of “amplifying”, processing and turning it into a machine-readable code, the entire process takes about four days. After Illumina finishes its analysis, the results are sent back to Ancestry marked only with bar codes to prevent disclosure of customer identities. The remainder of people’s biological sample is returned to Ancestry’s custody where they use the code to analyze a customer’s ethnicity. Ancestry then generates an ethnicity estimate which is forwarded to the person. Ancestry not only stores people’s genetic data, but the raw DNA itself, how long it will be stored, is unknown.

HACKING:

 Unidentified hackers last year accessed an Ancestry website, RootsWeb, compromising the sign-ins of 55,000 Ancestry customers who had the same log-in credentials with RootsWeb. The site has since been shut down. The incident received little attention but revealed how customers’ personal information could be accessed and exploited through Ancestry’s partnerships and acquisitions.

AncestryDNA, a subsidiary of Ancestry LLC marketing genetic testing, pledges to safeguard people’s private data. But the company has a history of changing the terms of its agreements with customers. In the most high-profile example, Ancestry in 2014 shut down MyFamily.com, a social networking site where more than 1.5 million users had posted family memories, photos and conversations. Numerous customers said they lost treasured family history because of inadequate notification from the company, which decided not to back up the data.

Ancestry claims to beat its competitors’ inaccurate analysis of a person’s ethnicity. But interviews with company officials reveal Ancestry has wide gaps in its ethnic markers for Asia and other sections of the world. Outside geneticists and anthropologists say Ancestry and other companies are making misleading claims about the accuracy of their ethnic analyses.

 Most Ancestry customers consent to have their DNA results, in a de-identified form, shared with the company’s research partners in the pursuit of sciences, including finding cures to diseases. But Ancestry’s main research partner is a secretive Google offshoot called Calico Life Sciences, which is focused on ways to extend human longevity through biotechnology. Critics have labeled Calico a “vanity project” of several Silicon Valley billionaires who want to extend their own lifespans.

IN CONCLUSION:
The U.S. government recently proposed revisions to the federal human subjects research regulations which would require federally funded researchers to get what is called “broad consent” from people to use their biospecimens (it is unclear what effect this would have on private/public collaborations). This would apply even if researchers won’t know who the specimens came from. Broad consent would include a general description of types of research which might be conducted with the biospecimen.

Watch Night Services

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe


The Watch Night Services in Black communities celebrated today can be traced back to gatherings on December 31, 1862, also known as “Freedom’s Eve.” On that night, free and freed Blacks living in the Union States came together gathering at churches, private homes, and other safe spaces, while thousands of their enslaved Black sisters and brothers stood, knelt and prayed on plantations anxiously awaiting for President Lincoln to sign the Emancipation Proclamation into law. Then, at the stroke of midnight, January 1, 1863, all slaves in the Confederate States were declared legally free. When the news was received, there were prayers, shouts, and songs of joy as people fell to their knees and thanked God.

It’s been 156 years since the first Freedom’s Eve and Black folks have gathered in churches annually on New Year’s Eve ever since, praising God for bringing them safely through another year. African American Christians continue the faith tradition of their enslaved ancestors and will gather, Dec. 31, 2018, to celebrate they are the survivors of a people who were defined in the U.S. Constitution as three-fifths human, shackled in chains and denied the right to vote. Most people were never taught the African American history of Watch Night, but tradition still brings Blacks together to celebrate “how we got over.”

Harper’s Weekly, 21 February 1862. Source: While slavery was far from dead in the United States in early 1863, the signs increasingly were not good for its long-term survival.

Today, Lincoln is remembered as “The Great Emancipator,” but the story of emancipation is complex and contradictory, and the question of how we choose to commemorate this anniversary can be touchy. The purpose of the Emancipation Proclamation was to create confusion and disruption among the Confederate forces. The Emancipation Proclamation only granted freedom to those slaves residing in the Confederate States and not the slaves residing in the Union States as Lincoln didn’t have any jurisdiction over slaves residing in Confederate States because these states had seceded from the United States, ergo, the Civil War, therefore, he did not have the authority to emancipate slaves in the Confederacy, in essence, the Emancipation Proclamation was a worthless document.

In actuality, Lincoln was just as racist as the rest of the peers of his era. This is evidenced by his saying the following at the Fourth Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Charleston, Illinois.

(The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume III, pp. 145-146)

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION

Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:

“That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

“That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States.”

Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit:

Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued.

And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons.

And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defense; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages.

And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service.

And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh.

By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN
WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.

It’s said the Emancipation Proclamation freed no slaves. In a way, this is true. The Emancipation Proclamation actually freed few people. The proclamation only applied to the Confederate States, as an act to seize enemy resources. By freeing slaves in the Confederacy, Lincoln was actually freeing people he did not directly control as a military measure which was a result of Union battlefield losses by July 1862, the President decided emancipation was a military necessity and ordered slaves freed in areas which were in rebellion against the U.S., declaring the military would enforce their freedom, and receive former slaves into the U.S. military, however it didn’t apply to border slave states like Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, all of which had remained loyal to the Union.

After the Emancipation Proclamation, the Southern cause was now the defense of slavery. The proclamation was a shrewd maneuver by Lincoln to brand the Confederate States as a slave nation and render foreign aid impossible because the Proclamation only applied to the ten states still in rebellion in 1863, and thus did not cover the nearly 500,000 slaves in the slave-holding border states.

The Thirteenth Amendment (Amendment XIII) to the United States Constitution actually abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, and by the House on January 31, 1865.

Mary Jane “Mae” West was born on August 17, 1893, in Kings County, New York, delivered at home by her midwife aunt. Mae was the eldest surviving child of prizefighter father John Patrick West, known as “Battlin’ Jack West” and mother Mathilde “Tillie” Delker, a former corset and fashion model. Mae was five when she first entertained a church crowd social, subsequently appearing in amateur shows at the age of seven. She often won prizes at local talent contests and shortly thereafter began performing professionally in vaudeville. In 1907 at the age of 14. Mae first performed under the stage name “Baby Mae”, but she also tried various personas, including a male impersonator. Her first appearance in a Broadway show was in the 1911 revue put on by her former dancing teacher, unfortunately, the show folded after only eight performances. At 18, she was singled out and discovered by The New York Times reviewer who wrote a “girl named Mae West, hitherto unknown, pleased by her grotesquerie and snappy way of singing and dancing.”

2019-02-18 (1)

Mae in New York 18 years old

Mae was an early supporter of the women’s liberation movement and since the early 1920s supported gay rights. Years before her movie career she wrote a play about homosexuals called “The Drag.” It never opened, also she’d already been arrested for staging another controversial play. Mae believed gays were born gay and was vehemently against the belief therapy could “change” a person from gay to straight

In 1932 she was offered a film contract by Paramount Pictures despite being close to 40. A director let pick her leading man for the film “She Done Him Wrong”. As Mae looked out the window she spotted a good looking young man walking across the street and inquired about him. “If he can talk, I’ll take him!”, which is how Cary Grant was discovered. When Paramount balked at putting Black musicians on the screen, she insisted on the new sensation Duke Ellington and His Orchestra for Belle of the Nineties (1934). By the second half of the 1930s, Mae’s popularity was affected by her dialogue and severely censored but she was a shrewd investor, produced her own stage acts and invested her money in large tracts of land in Van Nuys, a suburb of Los Angeles.

2018-11-29 (1)

On April 11, 1911, seventeen-year-old Mae married Frank Szatkus in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The marriage was kept secret until a filing clerk discovered the marriage certificate in 1935 and alerted the press. In 1937, in reply to a legal interrogatory, she obtained a legal divorce which was granted on July 21, 1942. August 1913, Mae met Guido Deiro an Italian-born vaudeville headliner and star of the piano-accordion. Her affair went “very deep, hittin’ on all the emotions. Marriage is a great institution. I’m not ready for an institution yet.”

From its 1930 opening until her death Mae lived in the Ravenswood penthouse, during this time she was dating Black boxing champion William “Gorilla” Jones. The landlords of the Ravenswood apartment building didn’t allow “negroes” to visit the complex and complained, so West shut them up by purchasing the building and lifting the ban on African American guests and tenants.

Barely 5′ Mae didn’t drink, smoke or swear, loved sweets, hated to diet but exercised in her spare bedroom with various gymnastic accessories including five pound dumbbells, a contraption with handles and cords which worked like a human pulling machine, and a plain traction bar such as ballet dancers hang onto while toning up. The constant stream of White, Black, and Latino fighters who visited her at home were, she claimed, “the one departure I have made from the average citizen’s way of life.” She knew everybody in every town – judges, mayors, gangsters. Sweet, demure with a sensitive retiring side she’d say, ‘The world is about spiritual power, it’s about feeling.” She “quiet offstage, but when she got onstage, she lit up.

At age 61 she became romantically involved with Chester Rybinski, a wrestler and one of the musclemen in her Las Vegas stage show. Rybinski was former Mr. California and merchant marine, he was 30 years younger than Mae, later changing his name to Paul Novak and moving in with her. Chester/Paul discreetly arranged for treatment of the medical problems of her final years, diabetes and cataracts, and protected and reassured her as she became remote, defensive, and increasingly paranoid. She was convinced that “the forces” that had once protected her health and career had abandoned her, that the sun was her enemy, that Tennessee Williams, Mart Crowley, and Warren Beatty had stolen ideas from her early plays for Suddenly Last Summer, The Boys in the Band, and Shampoo. Their romance continued until her death at age 87 on November 22, 1980. Novak once commented, “I believe I was put on this Earth to take care of Mae West.”

During World War II, Allied aircrews called their yellow inflatable, vest-like life preserver jackets “Mae Wests”. Her lips inspired surrealist artist Salvatore Dali to create the “Mae West Lips Sofa” an art deco shaped couch. Fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli (Coco Chanel’s rival) designed a number of Mae’s costumes. In 1937 Schiaparelli released a perfume called Shocking which came in a bottle shaped like Mae’s torso. It’s also rumored Mae inspired a Coca-Cola bottle. She actually had special shoes, almost like a shoe within a shoe which is said to have changed her gate. The nine-inch platform heels she wore to make her five-foot, 130 lb. body appear taller and slimmer.

In 1977 I was employed by the William Randolph Hearst Publishing Company, one of the young men I worked with told me Mae West phone number and address was in the phone book, we looked it up and he called her. She was absolutely wonderful, genuinely friendly and funny as ever. I used to drive by the Ravenswood every day to and from work and although I never saw her, one time her chauffeur had pulled her white on white limo around to the entrance and was standing on the curb with the door open waiting for her to exit the building. Unfortunately, the traffic was heavy and the light changed from red to green and before I could get a glimpse I had to move on. But I’ll always remember almost seeing her!

A THANKSGIVING MESSAGE ~ Remember to forget

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

By Rudy TwoMoon
rudytwomoon-letourvoicesecho-indigenous-waterislife

WE INDIGENOUS AROUND THE WORLD OFFER FOOD AS GIFTS
This was thanks and giving. This tells all of creation we know what hunger feels like, and no one should ever be hungry. This gesture also asks creation to send more abundance because we are a sharing people whose happiness comes from giving and sharing. We believed this all year around, every day, not just one.

We believed the half-starved should always share with the starving. We dedicated our two front rows of fields and gardens to travelers, those known and unknown. But now, Thanksgiving has everyone pretending it’s a joyous Thanksgiving celebration: Happy Thanksgiving statements, having to shut our mouths and pretend we’re having a wonderful time, pretending there is no genocide, just happiness. Puritans singing and dancing with friendly Indians. Friends for all time!

No, we are not allowed to voice how babies were slammed against boulders, or how children were used as bait to train attack dogs, or how our lands were stolen then destroyed. The same with our waters. Or, how we were forced to trade in free foods and medicines for a lifetime of struggling debt. We’re not supposed to think about the people enslaved by education and religion to make us into the image of our enslavers. Or, how we lost our hair, were brutally punished for speaking our language, were jailed for dancing and singing our ancestors songs, for praying to creation and being called a sinner because creation wasn’t GOD. Mocked. Spit on. Laughed at. Corrected, corrected, and corrected again and again, again and again, because science claims it has proven we are in fact Chinese, when in fact the land bridge was a theory created out of thin air in 1902… 6 yrs. later, it was busted…. in fact it’s been busted in a multitude of ways and proved a lie as per “9 – repeat allele” genetic marker, yet many never bothered to learn the truth and are spewing regurgitated sound-bites just as they’ve been trained to do by public education…. If the land bridge is 10 to 20 thousand yrs. old why do we have extinct cultures throughout the US who died out 50 to 100 thousand yrs. ago? Why is Michigan copper which can only be found in Michigan, found in the tombs of Egyptian mummies? Why is cocaine and tobacco, which is only found in the Americas also found with these same mummies?

Who stole this land? Our land was a gift but it’s been abused. We’ve been forced to salute the flag whose military hunted us for sport and profit and good times.

THIS IS TRULY A DAY OF MIRACLES, KINDNESS AND SHARING, FRIENDSHIP AND FEASTING.
But, before we get lost in all this holiday cheer, let me remind us: Thanksgiving was a celebration for every time a section of land was conquered and the tribes eradicated. this happened so often, Thanksgiving (by name) was celebrated sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. Thanksgiving is a time where we must sit with the oppression, smiling with forgiveness in “OUR” hearts, forgetting history because “that’s all in the past.”

Forgiveness and forgetting! Take the elbows off the table, chew with mouths closed, and pass the potatoes. Take this one day, and one day only, and “remember to forget” we are supposed to be thankful everyday. Stop the fighting this day, eat, so you can fight the oppressors patriotic wars tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow.

Open Letter For People Looking For Open Letters

Thank you Robin Sokoloff
Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

I sat down at a sidewalk cafe today, popped open this laptop – ready to send some words to anyone who’s looking for perspective and support out there.

And just like clockwork, when I try to go anywhere or do anything as a woman by myself, I am interrupted.

I am just sitting here, trying to write you these words. I’m typing away. A shadow blocks out the sun above me. Someone is looming above. This is not the first time in a lifetime of men shaped looms.

“Excuse me miss. Hey miss.”

I keep typing.

“Yo ma. Ma… yo I’m trying to talk to you lady.”

I breathe. I keep doing what I’m doing.

“Yo BITCH! What the fuck! You must be some kind a bitch right? Sitting there.”

I remain unmoved.

“BITCH I’M TALKING TO YOU!”

He puts his phone on my table.

I see it. I see where this is going. I see it all.

I pause.

I do the mental math.

I close my laptop. I set it aside.

I flip the table, forcing him to tumble back surprised.

I stand up.

I pause again.

I breathe.

I lock eyes with him.

I look at him and let him see how bored I am. I look at him like he’s an ant. I look at him like he’s obviously no match and he must have been tripping.

I say, “Say it again. No please, tell me again what a bitch I am. Let everyone here know just what a bitch I am so they can hear it and understand you fully that I’m a bitch. What else you got? Just ‘Bitch’? That’s it? What was next? Please oh please, don’t leave me hanging, I’ve been waiting all day for you to interrupt my meal and piss all over me so you can get what YOU need today. Oh hey! Maybe if you say ‘bitch’ some more, maybe just maybe, the people sitting all around me, – no, shrinking all around me while pretending this isn’t happening – maybe one of these nice people will get up and come to my aid or something. I dunno? Sounds crazy right? Why don’t you just call me crazy bitch too, for thinking someone here might care more about a woman’s safety right now than their own pasta.”

No one moves. Still. All of them. Of course. Same as it ever was.

He darts for his phone at my feet.

I push him back. My two hands. On his shoulders. I push him back like we are at the line of scrimmage. That’s what that’s called, right? Football is weird. But now I’m a football player.

He tumbles back again. This has clearly never happened to him before.

He tries again for the phone.

I step on it. Not enough to hurt it, of course. Just lightly enough to say, “Nah, that’s my phone now.”

I cock my head, motioning him up the block; or else.

He runs.

I calmly and quietly pack up my things. I swing my bag over my shoulder. Same as it ever was. I mean, no one at this restaurant seems mildly concerned about my condition, so why should I be.

The waiter shuffles just inside my periphery, to dip his toe in: “Ma’am, your sangria?” – looking to me to make this nice.

“Ma’am, ummm…. are you okay?” Says the patron next to me, suddenly leaping into action now that the action is clearly over.

“Who me? Yes, I AM okay, thanks to your help! Wow, you really took action there, huh? I hope you’re all happy with your choices here today. I hope you’re all knocking back that beer extra hard murmuring ‘oh gee, this Kavanaugh thing… isn’t there anything we can do?!?’ Newsflash my friends, you just missed your chance. You just didn’t ‘do’ anything. So I thank you all.”

I wink at them.

I eye my harasser shuffling along one block up, turning the corner.

I follow.

That’s right, I follow him.

I follow him for a bit.

I follow my harasser some more.

I see him realize I am following him.

I follow him past all the other women who he would’ve tried this on, but is now too busy trying to get away from me.

I watch him awkwardly strategize for many blocks. Change tactics, and wonder who he can ask for help. But he won’t, cause he’s a man. So…

I follow him through 6 Lanes of Canal Street/ Holland Tunnel traffic in both directions.

I keep coming, kinda like it’s Terminator III.

He ducks into a Dunkin’ Donuts, and hides like a child under the window counter.

I stop right outside the store, stand just over him, and stare.

I wonder, how odd, to hide beyond a window, like I can’t see him. Ha!

I stare at him some more.

I stare at him some more.

I stare at him till he stops panicking long enough to realize there’s no way out until I give it him.

I breathe.

I breathe some more.

I light my cigarette.

I take a puff.

I take another.

I shake my head and laugh.

I walk on.

I release him.

I release him.

If you came here looking for hope, I’m not sure I have it. No, I definitely don’t have it. All I have is my survivor’s strength to share, and my continued commitment to transparency where you are all concerned.

I don’t want to give you hope. I want you to wake the fuck up.

I’m telling every single one of you who have been too blah blah blah to believe me, support me, or fight with me – The age of your ignorance needs to end today.

The age where you birth your daughters into a system of violence, and quietly escape to the suburbs as though that will keep them safe, but it will only really stifle their screams just enough so that you can sleep through their torture – The age of your indifference ends today.

The age where you birth your sons into a system that rapes and pillages the generation after you, just as you have, and you find yourself defending a monster because you see a little Kavanaugh in your precious boy king – The age of your convenience ends today.

I do blame you. I do. I’ve been out ringing all the alarms. I’ve been out here weeding out all the weeds, and holding the line so it can inch no further. I’ve been out here defending myself, and defending you too.

And for the life of me, I keep scratching my head knowing you all have children and grandchildren of your own by now and I don’t know what the fuck you are going to do. What you think they are going to do. They are not safe from this. No, not from this – The age where you can hide this from them is over. Heck, the age where you can hide them FROM this is over.

As many of you know, I run Town Stages. That means lots of people in and out, day in and day out. Lot’s of conversations amongst friends, and even more conversations amongst strangers.

If I had a nickel for every seemly nice guy who’s tried to mack on me this week by saying, “So… this Kavanaugh thing, huh?”

And I just stare back. I figure it’s their turn to make this nice.

And they go, “Well, I mean… do you think there is any… absolutely any chance that he didn’t do it? Like what if….. I mean, there’s very little evidence and I was wondering like what if… ”

And I stop him there. I try to help him out. I try to take his side.

“Bro – Humor me. Imagine you were overcome by a bunch of piss drunk men, half suffocated, and brought to the point of ‘about to be raped’, if not actually raped in this manner as so very many women are. Think about it for a sec. Would you tell anyone? How would the people around you act if you said you had been raped? Would your family believe you? Would your job believe you? Would the WHOLE WORLD believe you? Are you prepared to be the laughing stock of every where you go for the rest of your life just to stop one man from having a job? Tell me – Is there a world in which YOU would make this up knowing it would pretty much end your life as you currently know it? And if you actually worked up the courage to tell your story, what would you do if some guy like you, no, millions of guys like you were standing here going ARE YOU SURE???”

He says, “oh…. I …shit. Yeah…. But wait, were the guys that raped me gay or straight.”

I stare back. I blink once, very slowly.

He knows he’s an idiot. He admits he’s an idiot. He just needed a sec.

“Well the thing is, women don’t get a sec when they are being sexually assaulted.”

He stands there quietly.

I stand there quietly.

He tries to change topics, says “Hey… Nice place. You work here?”

“I built it.”

He looks at me.

He looks down.

“Yeah. You weren’t expecting that either, were you….”

He stands there quietly.

And maybe he was thinking, what a bitch.

But what if he was thinking: Holy shit. I’ve gotta get my shit together.

And that’s all I want, men. Get your shit together.

I suppose my open letter for people who like open letters in dark times even though it’s always been a dark time for the people who actually build America, is this: You just pissed off one of the fiercest bitches to ever walk this earth and you still haven’t thought this though. Be afraid. Be very afraid. You left me and my friends with nothing to lose when you had everything to lose. Bad plan. Very bad.

I sat down at a sidewalk cafe today, popped open this laptop – ready to send some words to anyone who’s looking for perspective and support out there.

And just like clockwork, when I try to go anywhere or do anything as a woman by myself, I am interrupted.

I am just sitting here, trying to write you these words. I’m typing away. A shadow blocks out the sun above me. Someone is looming above. This is not the first time in a lifetime of men shaped looms.

“Excuse me miss. Hey miss.”

I keep typing.

“Yo ma. Ma… yo I’m trying to talk to you lady.”

I breathe. I keep doing what I’m doing.

“Yo BITCH! What the fuck! You must be some kind a bitch right? Sitting there.”

I remain unmoved.

“BITCH I’M TALKING TO YOU!”

He puts his phone on my table.

I see it. I see where this is going. I see it all.

I pause.

I do the mental math.

I close my laptop. I set it aside.

I flip the table, forcing him to tumble back surprised.

I stand up.

I pause again.

I breathe.

I lock eyes with him.

I look at him and let him see how bored I am. I look at him like he’s an ant. I look at him like he’s obviously no match and he must have been tripping.

I say, “Say it again. No please, tell me again what a bitch I am. Let everyone here know just what a bitch I am so they can hear it and understand you fully that I’m a bitch. What else you got? Just ‘Bitch’? That’s it? What was next? Please oh please, don’t leave me hanging, I’ve been waiting all day for you to interrupt my meal and piss all over me so you can get what YOU need today. Oh hey! Maybe if you say ‘bitch’ some more, maybe just maybe, the people sitting all around me, – no, shrinking all around me while pretending this isn’t happening – maybe one of these nice people will get up and come to my aid or something. I dunno? Sounds crazy right? Why don’t you just call me crazy bitch too, for thinking someone here might care more about a woman’s safety right now than their own pasta.”

No one moves. Still. All of them. Of course. Same as it ever was.

He darts for his phone at my feet.

I push him back. My two hands. On his shoulders. I push him back like we are at the line of scrimmage. That’s what that’s called, right? Football is weird. But now I’m a football player.

He tumbles back again. This has clearly never happened to him before.

He tries again for the phone.

I step on it. Not enough to hurt it, of course. Just lightly enough to say, “Nah, that’s my phone now.”

I cock my head, motioning him up the block; or else.

He runs.

I calmly and quietly pack up my things. I swing my bag over my shoulder. Same as it ever was. I mean, no one at this restaurant seems mildly concerned about my condition, so why should I be.

The waiter shuffles just inside my periphery, to dip his toe in: “Ma’am, your sangria?” – looking to me to make this nice.

“Ma’am, ummm…. are you okay?” Says the patron next to me, suddenly leaping into action now that the action is clearly over.

“Who me? Yes, I AM okay, thanks to your help! Wow, you really took action there, huh? I hope you’re all happy with your choices here today. I hope you’re all knocking back that beer extra hard murmuring ‘oh gee, this Kavanaugh thing… isn’t there anything we can do?!?’ Newsflash my friends, you just missed your chance. You just didn’t ‘do’ anything. So I thank you all.”

I wink at them.

I eye my harasser shuffling along one block up, turning the corner.

I follow.

That’s right, I follow him.

I follow him for a bit.

I follow my harasser some more.

I see him realize I am following him.

I follow him past all the other women who he would’ve tried this on, but is now too busy trying to get away from me.

I watch him awkwardly strategize for many blocks. Change tactics, and wonder who he can ask for help. But he won’t, cause he’s a man. So…

I follow him through 6 Lanes of Canal Street/ Holland Tunnel traffic in both directions.

I keep coming, kinda like it’s Terminator III.

He ducks into a Dunkin’ Donuts, and hides like a child under the window counter.

I stop right outside the store, stand just over him, and stare.

I wonder, how odd, to hide beyond a window, like I can’t see him. Ha!

I stare at him some more.

I stare at him some more.

I stare at him till he stops panicking long enough to realize there’s no way out until I give it him.

I breathe.

I breathe some more.

I light my cigarette.

I take a puff.

I take another.

I shake my head and laugh.

I walk on.

I release him.

I release him.

Obscuring Kaepernick’s Truth ~ Symbols as Political Points

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

The Nike craze of whether burning or buying, I don’t know what pisses me off more… Nike claims it’ll be donating to Kaepernick’s charity “Know Your Rights” (but it hasn’t been formally announced by Nike yet – ah yeah, right) to raise awareness of “higher education, self-empowerment, and “instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios”. Excuse me, PROPERLY INTERACT??? Like when police murdered 12-year-old Tamir Rice within 1.3 seconds of arrival, or maybe 7-year-old Aiyana Jones asleep on the couch, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner or the 684 people killed by police so far this year? What percentage is going charity? And what is going into Nike’s pocket? And then what’s happening to the slave laborers who are already working 12-hour shifts 7 days a week for about 20₡ an hour? They can’t add any more days to the week so is Nike adding more hours to their day? Is this raising awareness or is it just shooting back at Trump and his groupies to piss them off, nanny, nanny, nanny?

As for the idiots who already spent a small fortune on Nike products, wow, like burning them is really hurting Nike who already suckered them out of their money. Then there’s air quality, where’s BBQ Betty when you need her? It’s illegal to burn trash; just think how toxic burning rubber is? Where’s Smokey the Bear? Don’t we have enough of the US burning now?

Before these people make someone/something a symbol for their political point they should make sure to actually listen and stop using a stupid piece of cloth, a dumb song or articles of clothing as a cover for their racism/activism. If they don’t care and can’t be bothered or concerned about police brutality, just admit it and own up to their position.

There are more 49,933 homeless veterans. On average, 20 veterans die by suicide each day. Taking a knee isn’t disrespectful to veterans, stealing VA Benefits and leaving veteran’s to die is, but kneeling isn’t about veterans, kneeling is about police violence.

Most people who complain have done NOTHING for this country but stand for a song claiming they’re soooooooo patriotic, but won’t give a dime to a veteran standing on the corner. There are more than 13 million children living in “food insecure” homes and 16 million children, roughly one in five living in poverty. The United States of America can afford to house every homeless veteran, feed every child, and take in every refugee while still having plenty of money left over for a 30 oz. container of Starbucks bottom of the barrel burnt bean ashtray coffee and a family size bucket of chemically enhanced genetically engineered chicken from KFC.

Where were Nike, burners, and buyers when Kaepernick first took a knee? As White people stand for the National Anthem, most of them sit in careless silence as police kill Black and Brown people while hiding behind the baseless excuse of “I feared for my life.” In the United States people value guns, flags and fake acts of patriotism over people, pain and real acts of courage.

Keep ignoring the fact people are kneeling in support of those who are unable to stand, or kneel, shot down or choked to death by police who don’t even get their hand slapped. That’s what we are protesting! Not the flag, not the military and not the country allegedly allowing for freedom of speech.

“Actions speak louder than words, right?” Kneeling is not disrespect; in fact, it is a sign of profound respect and humility. When a person prays, they kneel. When a soldier honors a fallen compatriot, they kneel. When a Mother is crying over her slain child in the street, she kneels. Instead of looting, lynching, bombing and terrorizing, when a person kneels it is not to dishonor, it is to say we as a collective people should have the right to be able to kneel for freedom. To not be in fear for our lives, to be able to have the same rights as all citizens. The action got attention, didn’t it?

Never lose sight of his original purpose, for Colin Kaepernick is demonstrating the true meaning of the term “By any means necessary” by his unselfish generosity of time, money and loss of career. Nike and the burners are faking patriotism by masking their disdain for racial injustice; both are capitalizing on Kaepernick’s name and his heroic stance against police brutality

Indian Boarding Schools

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe


This is a manual cover page from the Government and Church in 1916 on how to kidnap Indigenous children from their parents by removing their culture, language, and identity and assimilating them into the dominant culture. “The great aim of our legislation has been to do away with the tribal system and assimilate the Indian people in all respects with the other inhabitants of the Dominion as speedily as they are fit to change.” 1887 – John A McDonald. Architect of the Indian Act

The government paid religious orders to provide basic education to Native American children on reservations. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) founded additional boarding schools based on the assimilation model of the off-reservation Carlisle Indian Industrial School.

The US government wanted to destroy the identity of Indians by ripping over 100,000 children from their homes and families and put in boarding schools to be “civilized” by beating the native out of them with leather belts, whips and sticks.

Classes at Chemewa Indian School began with 18 students—14 boys and 4 girls

460 boarding and day schools had been built near reservations, most run by religious organizations with government funds. All told, more than 100,000 1st Nation Indigenous Native Americans were forced by the U.S. government to attend Christian schools where tribal languages and cultures were replaced by English and Christianity. Students were prohibited from speaking their native languages. Instead, they were supposed to converse and even think in English. If they were caught “speaking Indian” they were severely beaten with a leather belt.

Harper’s Weekly Jan. 16, 1869

Virtually imprisoned in the schools, children experienced a devastating litany of abuses, from forced assimilation and grueling labor to widespread sexual and physical abuse “where recent generations learned the fine art of standing in line single-file for hours without moving a hair, as a lesson in discipline; where our best and brightest earned graduation certificates for homemaking and masonry; where the sharp rules of immaculate living were instilled through blistered hands and knees on the floor with scouring toothbrushes; where mouths were scrubbed with lye and chlorine solutions for uttering Native words.”

The boarding schools ran on bare-bones budgets, and large numbers of students died from starvation and disease because of inadequate food and medical care. School officials routinely forced children to do arduous work to raise money for staff salaries and “leased out” students during the summers to farm or work as domestics for white families.

Physical hardship, however, was merely the backdrop to a systematic assault on Native culture. School staff sheared children’s hair, banned traditional clothing and customs, and forced children to worship as Christians. Eliminating Native languages — considered an obstacle to the “acculturation” process — was a top priority, and teachers devised an extensive repertoire of punishments for uncooperative children. “I was forced to eat an entire bar of soap for speaking my language,” says AIUSA activist Byron Wesley (Navajo).

Students at residential schools faced a number of hazards, from fires to experimentation, according to the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Indian Boarding School_23 #LetOurVoicesEcho

Children Who Never Came Home

Many children died while in the Indian Residential School system. Their bodies were often buried at cemeteries near the schools. Some families didn’t know (and still don’t) what happened to their children or their bodies. Many of its children died of abuse, diseases to which they had no immunity, and homesickness. Imagine being taken from your family, sent thousands of miles away, prohibited from speaking your language, and forced into a military-style existence.

#IndianChildrenSold #LetOurVoicesEcho

After the United States declared independence, American politicians quickly identified dissolution of Native American cultures as a necessary step in undermining tribal saliency and in ensuring the political dominion of state and federal governments. By the 19th century, policymakers were convinced that encouraging Indians to put aside their “savage ways” would help tribal populations achieve cultural and spiritual salvation through Christianity. In 1869, President Grant initiated a “Peace Policy” granting Christian missions contracts and federal funding to civilize and Christianize the Native American peoples of assigned reservations. The federal government established boarding schools for the children of tribal communities to teach English, Christianity, and occupational skills in order to “Kill the Indian in him and Save the Man.”

Thomas Moore Photo and bio Credit student register for the Regina Indian Industrial School, 1891 to 1908 (microfilm R-2.40, see entry No. 22): Thomas Moore was admitted to the Regina Indian Industrial School on August 26, 1891 when he was 8 years old. He was a full-blooded Indian from the Saulteaux tribe. He was from the Muscowpetung Band which is about 35 miles northeast of Regina. His full name was Thomas Moore Kusick. His father was St.(?) Paul Desjarlais (deceased) and his mother’s name was Hanna Moore Kusick. The boy was a Protestant and had previously attended Lakes End School. His state of education upon admission consisted of knowing the alphabet. His height was 3 feet, 11 inches and he weighed 54 1/2 pounds.

White supremacy is not starched white pointed hoods and swastika armbands

By Rudy TwoMoon
Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

I’m writing this so I have written testimony about what occurred here this morning. June 3, 2018 11:35 am.

The dogs go ballistic while I’m in the shower and I can tell they’re barking at the front and not the side door. They almost never bark at the front due to all the kids using the side. I open the bathroom door and peek outside the curtain… I can see through the front picture window and outside are 2 cops, strapped with fully auto rifles “crouch walking aka hunting” down my driveway. Wtf I think as I turn off the water and quickly wrap a towel around my waist… running out the bathroom, pounding issues from the side door. Through the kitchen and around the corner to the side door I see both cops aiming their rifles directly at my chest… I make a gesture like really dude, I’m standing here in a fucking towel dripping water while you point that shit at me… yelling through the door he demands to know if a boy named Eric is here? My daughter is in the kitchen freaking out… I yell downstairs to Liam my oldest, “is a boy named Eric down there because I have cops pointing their fucking guns at me, so if he’s down there, get his ass up here now!” “No he’s not… we haven’t seen him in 3 weeks”… I relay the message. Just then my youngest leaves the room and I hear Addey yell, go back to your room Kai, there’s armed cops outside. I tell, Kai go back to your room right now! (Kai goes to his room where he sees another armed cop looking through his window) Cops point their weapons down and asks if I’ll come out to talk. I give him that look again, ya know the, can’t you see I’m dripping wet in a fucking towel look. Grabbing my shoes I step out. Again with “have you seen Eric”… I’m like “no, but why are you at my house armed and pointing your weapons at me?” “We were told Eric stayed the night here.”

(The reason the cops came so strapped was because the neighbors have called the cops on us so much for absolutely nothing, we have what looks like a rap sheet a mile long… these neighbors have literally gone door to door demanding other neighbors call the cops on us daily exactly for something like this to occur, and all because we have my kids friends at the house. These kids do not do anything off the property nor are they loud. They don’t speed, bump music nor litter… the problem is a bunch of them have Black and Brown skin… Neighbors Ricky and Dottie have made an actual campaign of calling cops daily just to make us look bad. We have never done a single thing to these sick minded people, nothing.)

So anyway, the other cop is walking up and down the street sweeping her weapon like she’s under attack. Not only that but somehow the dumb bitch racks her rifle and loses all the rounds right in the street. She’s stumbling around picking ‘em up looking like a total idiot. (I haven’t a clue as to how that occurred due to them being in a clip)

Eventually, they leave as my wife Dr. Julie comes home… she’s livid of course and says fuck this we need to make a complaint. So off we go to the police station and guess who’s at the window. Yep, the guy who was just pointing his weapon at me, and he ain’t having any complaints bullshit. But he does ask if we mind if they search the house. “Um no, you may not enter my home” I reply. On his radio we hear “the suspect was seen at our address”… we bolt out of the station because all 3 kids are home with 2 other friends. I immediately call my daughter and tell her lock the doors and make sure no one leaves the house. Turns out the 2 kids had enough and were gonna split. Mind you, one of the kids were Korean and the other is Black… absolutely looking nothing like the redhead boy in question. We return and again and same 3 cops are there… fortunately they’re not all strapped like earlier. One cop goes to my very cool neighbor, shows him a pic of the redhead boy and proceeds to make a bold faced lie saying he committed an armed robbery. (He did not commit armed robbery, she said this in hope my very cool neighbor would freak out I guess. They leave again.)

(All this time my fuckhead neighbors are eating popcorn and totally enjoying the show… laughing, giggling and patting each other on the ass and sharing tug jobs all around.)

Turns out the boy got kicked out of his house 3 days ago. He may have or may not have stolen his stepdad’s firearms… (if so, why wait 3 fucking days to call the cops eh?)

They come back but this time have another patrol car from another township. They want to check the garage because the boy was seen leaving his backpack with the guns there… it wasn’t there of course.

So to make a long story even longer, these same neighbors have started rumors against us when my oldest was in 1st grade. She told all the parents we don’t feed Liam, make him get up on his own and even walk to the bus stop all alone…. funny because I was at the stop with him every fucking morning and picking him up every fucking evening. Also if you know me, you damn well know I have never ever used food as a weapon nor would I ever withhold any from a hungry person let alone my own son. This bitch has also started other rumors against us throughout the years. We have never once called the cops even when their dumb drunk asses were whooping it up past 3 am, nor when their Harley glasspack idiot friend stops by.

To try and make friends, I have gone to their house to try and help when their huge tree fell across their driveway… I also brought them beer and just left it with them. I didn’t stay; I just dropped off beer as a gift. What do we get in return? Lying, bullying, libelous KKK actions. My kids are terrified to do anyfuckingthing! They have filmed my kids as well as guests who come to our house, and all for what? I can’t for the fucking life of me figure out what the fuck anyone in this house has ever done to them. I still remember the 1st week we moved in. Julie and I took a walk around the neighborhood and tried to introduce ourselves. They didn’t want to shake hands and looked at us like we had a disease creeping along our faces. We are going to go to the deputy sheriff and see if we can put a stop to this. Not sure if it will help considering Ricky seems to burn crosses with all the other blue lives matter folks.

U.S. SUPREME COURT 4th AMENDMENT RIGHTS

The U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor ruled on May 29, 2018 police may not search the area around a private home area, or around a house, known as the curtilage which is part of the home itself and cannot be searched without a warrant even when police think they have seen stolen property on the premises; although the court has long ruled a vehicle can be searched without a warrant if an officer sees something in plain sight. However the Supreme Court ruled police officers must generally have warrants to enter a home’s driveway in search of stolen vehicles… The “curtilage” of a house or dwelling is the land immediately surrounding it, including any closely associated buildings and structures, but excluding any associated “open fields beyond”, and also excluding any closely associated buildings, structures, or divisions that contain the separate intimate activities.

1adam12 – 1adam12 – We got Negros and Mexicans – Send back-up

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Mother’s Day 5-13-18
My son, Rudy TwoMoon and his wife, Dr. Julie TwoMoon have 3 kids. Those 3 kids have friends. So about 8-10 friends were at the house, actually, they pretty much have an open door policy for everyone, kids included. There are 2 signs posted, one on the front window facing out, the other facing in, both at eye level with house rules. They say things like No drugs, No alcohol, No fighting, be respectful of the house and neighbors, No littering, No loud music, No racing cars up and down the street, only park in front of the house etc. My son enforces these laws without question, no exceptions to the rules, period.

Anyway, my son looks out the window and the cops are talking to 2 of the kids, getting their ID. So my son goes out and asks what the problem is and the cop was very nice and said the neighbor called the police claiming she was in fear of her life because there is always kids at the house and she was afraid they were going to come in the middle of the night and rape and kill her.

The cop is kinda rolling his eyes like “wtf”, so my son explains the rules and the cops’ like “cool” then leaves.

My son Rudy goes across the street to talk to the White lady and find out if something happened. The White lady calls the police back and tells them he was threatening her on HER property, so my son talks loud enough so dispatch could hear. “No I’m not threatening her, and because I don’t want police coming here and me getting shot I’m going back across the street till the police get here”

The same officer comes back and this time my son and his wife go out. Dr. Julie asks White lady “What is it we can do to make you feel comfortable and safe” The White lady turns the question back around and says “Well how would you feel, what would make you feel safe in your own home?” Wife tells her “this isn’t about what makes me feel safe, I want to know what we can do to make you feel safe” White lady goes back to her same question avoiding wifes’ question. The cop is rolling his eyes and they walk back across the street in front of my son’s house. The cop asks how long have you lived here. Son “13 years” – “Well how long has she lived here?” – Son “about 6 or 7 months”. The cop rolls his eye again, apologizes, and says “This is ridiculous; unfortunately when someone calls we have to come out.”

That’s the end, but even though it won’t happen again tonight, my son expects she’ll wait until she thinks that cop is off-duty and will try again.

Bet the White lady thought she’d pull off a Becky (is that what we’re calling Ms. Raisin potato salad from the Barbecuing While Black video?) expecting better results. I hope the neighbor is monitoring my son’s FB page.

First Amendment ~ Freedom of Speech

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

THE FIRST AMENDMENT TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the freedom of speech, religion and the press. It also protects the right to peaceful protest and to petition the government. The amendment was adopted in 1791 along with nine other amendments which make up the Bill of Rights, a written document protecting civil liberties under U.S. law. The meaning of the First Amendment has been a subject of continuing interpretation and dispute over the years. Landmark Supreme Court cases have dealt with the right of citizens to protest U.S. involvement in foreign wars, flag burning and the publication of classified government documents. The Supreme Court has also written this freedom is “the matrix, the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom.”

Freedom of speech is the right to express any opinions without censorship or restraint. It’s a principle supporting the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or sanction.

Although the term “freedom of expression” is sometimes used it includes any act of seeking, receiving, and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 19 of the UDHR states “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”.

Freedom of speech and expression, therefore, may not be recognized as being absolute, and common limitations to legal systems sometimes recognize certain limits on the freedom of speech, particularly when freedom of speech conflicts with other rights and freedoms, such as in the cases of defamation (including libel and slander), obscenity, pornography, sedition, incitement, fighting words, true threats, solicitations to commit crimes, blackmail, classified information, copyright violation, trade secrets, food labeling, non-disclosure agreements, the right to privacy, the right to be forgotten, public security, and perjury.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH INCLUDES THE RIGHT:

1. Not to speak (specifically, the right not to salute the flag).
2. Of students to wear black armbands to school to protest a war (“Students do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate.”).
3. To use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages.
4. To contribute money (under certain circumstances) to political campaigns.
5. To advertise commercial products and professional services (with some restrictions).
6. To engage in symbolic speech, (e.g., burning the flag in protest).

FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOES NOT INCLUDE THE RIGHT:

1. Incite actions which would harm others (Shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater)
2. Make or distribute obscene materials.
3. Burn draft cards as an anti-war protest.
4. Advocating illegal drug use
5. Plotting to overthrow the government
6. Lying under oath in a court of law
7. Publish dishonest advertisements
8. As an employee, you have no free-speech rights at your workplace
9. Shows clear intent to discriminate or sexually harass
10. Discussing medical or financial confidential information outside of work

HATE SPEECH VS. FREE SPEECH
Censoring disturbing or even offensive speech, especially in art and literature, often violates not only the intentions or spirit of the speaker, writer or artist but suggests a willful lack of understanding of language itself: the ambiguity of words and images, as well as the role of context in determining meaning.

Random House Unabridged Dictionary

Hate speech is “speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, threatens, incites discrimination, hatred, or maliciously slurs, defames or is likely to promote violence.”

Hate speech is usually treated as protected free speech unless it is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to produce or incite such action. The Supreme Court has protected the rights of Nazis, anti-Semites, cross-burning Klansmen and an anti-gay Baptist sect to openly denigrate others. The only restrictions, to quote from one Supreme Court decision, are for speech “likely to produce a clear and present danger of a serious substantive evil that rises far above public inconvenience, annoyance, or unrest”

IN CLOSING ~ Some people are offended by truth because of its very nature; however, truth is exclusive and it is absolute, not relative. The absolute nature of truth means it does not depend on, nor is it changed by people’s opinions. Of course people are not always going to agree on everything, as humans we’re entitled to a difference of opinion. It’s up to us as individuals to accept this information. We don’t have to agree with it, but we have to accept there is a different perspective. You never know, a point may be made you hadn’t considered and it might even change all or part of your view. This is how we grow and evolve.

Please remember, a right is one thing, but the freedom to exercise it is something entirely different, and just because we have the right to freedom of speech doesn’t mean we should intentionally offend in order to make our own selves heard. Let’s give ourselves permission to communicate in a concise, direct, comprehensible way by clearly articulating our point without acquiescing to adolescent invectives as we all need to be able to freely acquire and interchange information, be the keepers of our own consciences, and speak out when needed, either individually or as part of a group. If we try to be respectful of each other and their opinions, we can have some great discussions.

Cottage #11 – Gabriel Cottage on the North Beach

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Cottage 11 #CrystalCove #Let Our Voices Echo

On October 9, 1926, a local segment of Coast Highway connecting Corona del Mar to Laguna Beach was dedicated by Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. The new 9.8-mile stretch of highway brought increased public attention and access to the previously isolated Crystal Cove, and by 1928 at least ten permanent structures were established there. Among those early cottages was #11, also known as Gabriel Cottage on the North Beach.

Built incrementally over time by structural engineer Cecil Payne for his Irish wife Biddy, Cottage #11 is identified in the archives of the National Register of Historic Places as “one of the most picturesque in the colony.” Charming roof lines and scalloped exterior shingles give the cottage a “gingerbread effect” and unify the additions Cecil made. Other features include tongue-and-groove knotty pine walls, a round brick fireplace, and detailed woodwork and cabinetry.

The Payne children had their own entrance to the cottage’s upstairs quarters with an external staircase. When Biddy left Crystal Cove in 1969, her friends Laurie and Ken Gabriel moved in and added a spiral staircase inside the cottage to access the upstairs rooms. The Gabriels also installed a redwood hot tub they inherited from Cottage #29 in the enclosed porch, and replaced the porch roof with a corrugated translucent one to add more light.

Biddy Payne was among the first year-round residents at the cove, and witnessed changes over more than four decades, especially during World War II. The Coast Guard patrolled the beach at night and used Crystal Cove for drills. A strict 8pm curfew was observed, and all cottages were required to have regulation black-out curtains. Even during such serious times, Biddy still showed the community spirit of Crystal Cove when one night, during a storm, she invited some of the Coast Guard into Cottage #11 for tea and shelter.

Today, Cottage #11, like the 16 other cottages of the North Beach, is waiting to be restored to host new guests with the same community spirit with which Biddy opened her home. Last March, the California Coastal Commission approved permitting plans for the final phase of restoring the historic cottages for public use, and fundraising is underway to realize this vision.

Gabriel Cottage is featured in the latest edition of the book “Crystal Cove: Islands in Time on the California Coast” which is available for purchase at The Store at Crystal Cove and other special locations and events.

False Flags, Hoax’s and Crisis Actors

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe
HIGHLIGHTED LINKS UNDERLINED IN BLUE ARE EMBEDDED LINKS TO NEWS SOURCES. CLICKING OPENS THE FULL ARTICLE IN A NEW TAB.

A FALSE FLAG doesn’t mean it’s fake and people aren’t injured or die. The perverse truth is a False Flag means people are set up to die for a political agenda. The term FALSE FLAG means simply that one group sets up a REAL event with REAL casualties in a blatant attempt to accuse another group of doing it, thus giving them an excuse to ‘rightfully’ attack said group… These are REAL events born by psychopaths in order to ‘justify’ an invasion on a peaceful entity… The US is a failing political system, a PLUTOCRACY which stages false flags against its own citizens in order to gain favor to fight never-ending wars over natural resources, and feeds its citizens an altered version of history which favors its own agenda while hiding atrocities. All to foster a false sense of patriotism which is used to manufacture your allegiance to a corporate entity masquerading as your government.

The contemporary term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them.

Historically, the term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag before (but not while) engaging the enemy has long been accepted as a permissible ruse de guerre; by contrast, flying a false flag while engaging the enemy constitutes perfidy.

Operations carried out during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, can (by extension) also be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organization behind an operation.

Hoax: to trick into believing or accepting as genuine something false and often preposterous. An act intended to trick or dupe. Imposture the victim of a cruel hoax assumed the bomb threat was just a hoax. Something accepted or established by fraud or fabrication.

THE LATEST REPORTED SHOOTING IN FLORIDA GIVES US A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW FALSE FLAG EVENTS ARE ACCOMPLISHED.

1. The shooter is reported to have been an orphan who had funds to purchase a firearm that more than 50% of America’s full-time income cannot afford, was able to slip past all the Police, FBI and Law Enforcement “Army People” at the scene, (A drill was reported to have been taking place that involved the Army) shoot 17 people, drop all firearms and calmly walk out the school, and all the police and employees of school were tricked, no one saw Nickolas shoot anyone, however he was named the lone shooter within an hour of the alleged Crime!
2. Security cameras were removed prior to the event.
3. Florida was due to hold a vote on a bill to relax background checks on guns the following day.
4. So-called witnesses laugh and show no signs of distress whilst others contradict the media reports to further confuse the public.
5. According to Broward County Sheriff Association, the Sheriff went to FBI academy. (just like Vegas Sheriff did)
6. There were five cop cars from out-of-town cop’s jurisdiction, sitting and waiting, 2 hours before they busted the patsy they all “knew” was the one.
7. BROWARD county, the last couple of months everyone has been noticing the police doing drills all over the county, black helicopters and different cities joining together their police departments.
8. His lawyer appeared on tv less than 24 hours after this happened. He stated that “he’s very remorseful”. This is not normal procedure for lawyers.
9. He reportedly wrote on youtube “I am going to be a professional school shooter”, and the FBI tells the very bold lie that they could not trace the message.
10. The reported shooter quickly pleads guilty, the prosecution takes the death penalty off the table and he’s transferred to federal custody with no outrage from so-called murdered family members.
11. Cruz does not know the police are after him and decides to go get something to eat at McDonald’s/Subway without knowing he is the pre-selected patsy.
12. Superintendent Robert Runcie of Broward County Public Schools came to Broward from Chicago Public Schools in 2012, and is a friend of Obama.
13. The school has a demolition in the aftermath, to hide the evidence, (just like Sandy Hook).
14. CBS filming from a helicopter of the event, how long would it take for TV or News company, to be informed and get cameraman into a helicopter?
15. The school was only accessible via a buzzer at that time of day, according to some parents, so how did he get in?
16. Why would someone who has been expelled be unknown or allowed to enter?
17. There is footage where the SWAT comes into a class where the children are with DRAWN GUNS and tell the children to get off their phones.
18. When these events happen, the public buy more guns! Remington just filed for bankruptcy. Sales have been really slow for Remington before this shooting.
19. There are 4 people named Nikolas Cruz in FL. But ages are 25, 28, 38 and non-disclosed. The non disclosed guy lives WAY up the coast towards Jacksonville. It lists relatives for all of these people except for the 25 yr. Nowhere does Lynda or Roger Cruz (parents) show up. BUT – if you look up Lynda or Roger (both now conveniently dead) they show up near Parkland – but no Nikolas listed as a relative. If it turns out that this kid is real and went by that name, then his public records were obviously scrubbed.
20. The school was named after a woman whose major cause was the eradication of the local Everglades for housing. She was against “draining the swamp”. {Emphasis on Trump} The school was also awarded a presidential medal of Freedom.
21. The reported use of the AR15 in staged events. (The gun they most want banned).
22. According to the Broward County Sheriff Dept Twitter it was Law Enforcement Day and there were special events in the district for cops and teens. Earlier in the day they had been posting pics of cops and teens learning about tactical equipment, etc.
23. Doctored pictures; look at Cruz eyebrows in his tee shirt pic, both bushy eyebrows are growing backward, or both inwards toward the centre of forehead?
24. This event went against protocols for gun attacks in schools. Lockdowns, stay in classroom, get on floor away from doors and windows.
25. Girl claims she talks to Nikolas Cruz while they walk out of the building and she hears gunshots.
26. Police claim they responded to incidents 39 times at his home. If police respond more than once to a domestic incident someone was going to jail.
27. Not one photo on facebook showing him holding a real gun. The only photo they have of “him” showing his face from the nose up is showing “him” holding an airsoft.
28. Broward County was also the site of the Ft. Lauderdale Airport mass shooting Jan 6, 2017? Presided over by the same Sheriff Israel.
29. The reported shooter appears to have ‘fragile x syndrome’. He seems to have the characteristics of this genetic disorder (e.g. outward facing ears, pronounced chin and jaw, autistic qualities etc…).
30. Reported shooter could NOT have left the school with his group unnoticed if he was expelled.
31. This fabricated story then goes on to claim that his mother died of flu complications(giving a heads up to Big Pharma vaccines) New laws to microchip people with mental health problems, cut down on free speech on the Internet and of course, gun control.
32. This is not the only Nikolas Cruz that hit the headlines in Florida though, as we have seen the Elon Musk Nikola Tesla car https://www.facebook.com/notes/ann-marie-carey/florida-a-false-flag/1896411350391987/ reportedly cruising in space, see link: many media reports talk of the Tesla car cruising in space.Hence the link between Nikola,s cruise and Nikola Cruz is hard to ignore. Both, of course, linked to Florida. Other links are just as strange, the car was said to have a starman robot and David Bowie,s hit was being played. Whilst decoding of the name of the school shows a link to Major Tom, the fictional astronaut that Bowie made famous. Majory Stoneman=MAJORy Stoneman.( David Bowie also had a single called Valentine’s day which was about a school shooting.)
33. Predictive programming comes in many forms, including music and films, the film, Parkland was released in 2013, it is centered around Kennedy,s assassination and the hospital involved, named Parkland. David Hogg, son of a retired FBI agent who claims to have been at Florida school and at California 2017. The video of him trying to get his story straight has been removed from YouTube.
34. When public officials profit from disaster scenarios, we really have to consider the credibility of such people. The Public Legislator for the area is Jared Moskowitz. He claims to have been informed about this event whilst at a senate meeting in which his wife contacted him to inform him that his 4yr old child’s school was on lockdown. He also stated that his child’s teacher had lost her daughter at the event. Firstly, its rather strange that he was informed in this manner. But, his connections to disaster events is suspect and warrants further investigation. Moskowitz is the Executive Vice President of a company called AshBritt.Inc. It is a disaster planning and recovery/response govt contract company that works with Fema and Emergency services. This company was given contracts to clear up several of the Hurricanes. They were given a suspect no-bid contract to clean up after Hurricane Sandy. A contract to clean up after Hurricane Irma in which they were also accused of price fixing and slow performance. They were also given the job of cleaning up after Haiti and formed the Haiti Recovery group. Other than rebuilding the international airport and clearing the principal urban arteries of rubble, no major infrastructure rebuilding — roads, ports, housing, communications — has begun. Despite the Billions awarded in contracts. The disaster profiteering exemplified by AshBritt is not just the result of quick decision-making in the midst of a crisis. These contracts are awarded as part of a corporate agenda that sees disaster as an opportunity, a tool for furthering policies that would not be possible in other times. They were also involved in the clean up after Katrina and were given their first contract by Haliburton in 1992 to clean up after Hurricane Andrew. They were also charged with double-billing the Broward School District after Hurricane Wilma. The fact that the school was earmarked for demolition just two days after this event (We know who will get the contract for the clear up!) is highly suspect when these decisions take meetings and time to decide, not likely unless a govt agency tasks a govt linked company to hide the evidence and in this case, one and the same. State legislator and EVP of AshBritt.Inc.

42 FALSE-FLAG ATTACKS OFFICIALLY ADMITTED TO
In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally, in writing, or through photographs or videos

CRISIS ACTORS
CRISIS ACTORS are professional actors used by government agencies and/or the mainstream media to deceive the public with portrayals of trauma and suffering. The crisis actors participate in a false flag event such as a bombing or mass shooting simulated by the conspirators, usually government or corporate forces in order to achieve some goal such as justifying increased government surveillance, disarmament of the population, or military action against blamed nations or groups. Crisis actors are claimed in this context to play the part of bystanders or witnesses, emergency response personnel, and with the aid of stage makeup wounded victims of the attack.

Stop Pretending Racism Is Patriotism

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe ~ Co-authored by Rudy TwoMoon

There has never been a point in U.S. history when non-white bodies were not under the threat of state violence. That’s why Black people are kneeling before the flag because the flag was never intended to reflect the protection of their flesh. If it were, police wouldn’t get away with shooting and killing People of Color with cruel disregard, all the while wearing American-flag emblems on their uniforms and saluting a piece of cloth manufactured in a sweatshop in far-off China.

It wasn’t until the Department of Defense poured millions of dollars into the NFL in exchange for displays of patriotism during games, no NFL player stood for the National Anthem, players actually stayed in the locker room as it played.

In 2009 the players were moved to the field during the national anthem because it was seen as a great marketing strategy to make the athletes “appear” more patriotic. The US Department of Defense “PAID” the National Football League $5.4 million plus between 2011 and 2014, and the National Guard $6.7 million between 2013 and 2015 to “stage” on-field patriotic ceremonies as part of military-recruitment budget line items.

The US Department of Defense spent $54 million of taxpayers’ money on “PAID PATRIOTISM.” for marketing and advertising contracts with professional sports organizations between 2012 and 2015. More than $10 million of that went to the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and Major League Soccer.

• Pittsburgh Steelers received $27,000
• Pittsburgh Pirates received $18,000.
• Atlanta Falcons $879,000
• New England Patriots $700,000
• NFL’s AFC North, the Ravens $534,000
• Cleveland Browns $10,000 by the U.S. Air Force for one color guard ceremony
• Cincinnati Bengals got $4,960 for 60 club-level seats bought by the 338th Recruiting Squadron
• New York Jets $115,000
• Buffalo Bills $500,000
• 50 teams across the five major professional leagues had contracts with the military, including 18 NFL teams which received more than $5.6 million over the four-year span. Ten MLB teams took nearly $900,000, and eight teams each from the NBA and MLS had similar contracts. Six National Hockey teams received their money, and the Air Force “PAID” more than $1.5 million to NASCAR.

Collegiate programs also benefited:
• Indiana University $400,000
• Perdue University $400,000
• University of Wisconsin $170,000

And those numbers are just the tip of the iceberg spent to BUY YOUR PATRIOTISM . The 145-page report released on Sept. 27, 2017 https://www.mccain.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/12de6dcb-d8d8-4a58-8795-562297f948c1/tackling-paid-patriotism-oversight-report.pdf reveals 72 of the 122 professional sports contracts analyzed contained items deemed “PAID PATRIOTISM“; the payment of taxpayer or Defense funds to teams in exchange for tributes like NFL’s “Salute to Service.” The National Guard simultaneously spent millions on professional sports ads while requesting more funding from Congress to fill a $100 million “shortfall” to pay troops and conduct training.

Nowhere in the rulebook does it mention the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy

“Players are encouraged but NOT REQUIRED to stand during the playing of the National Anthem. No penalties will be assessed for those who did not go out to the field for or kneeled during, the National Anthem”.

None of the athletes are taking a knee during the National Anthem because they believe the US has a problem with discriminating against Trump, wealthy people or the flag. These players are drawing attention to the discrimination of People of Color, specifically those who don’t have the fame, wealth or a platform to get the attention of those who DO have the power to implement change. To put the primary identity of “millionaire athletes” in something other than what they do and how much they make is a false idea that money is a savior, capable of protecting those who have it from all of life’s uglier challenges. These Black athletes acknowledge how people treated them changed as their wealth and fame grew. But no matter how successful they became, no amount of money could keep many people from reducing their identity simply to race. Yes, these players are wealthy, but they are also parents, and humans with interests, passions, and experiences far beyond their sport. No matter how much money they have as Black athletes, they’re still not White athletes, nor are they afforded the same privileges as affluent Whites.

MORE DIVISION
Obviously when the powers that be created our society, they were not going to make it the way they want by educating their slaves with foolhardy beliefs like Freedoms and Civil Rights. The TRUTH has never been profitable. Only covert lies bring home the bacon.

Football games are no place for politics… which is why people think we need to wave a giant piece of dyed fabric mass produced/manufactured in a Chinese sweatshop. Recite a Pledge of Allegiance to a country from a poem that doesn’t even rhyme or sing the National Anthem written by a racist, pro-slavery, anti-black, anti-abolitionist who thought Blacks were mentally inferior and had the audacity to fight for their freedom who even went so far as to write in the 3rd stanza:

“No refuge could save the hireling and slave. From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave”

and yet many think everyone should be forced stand and pay tribute.

People don’t watch the NFL for the anthem; if they don’t like the kneeling they should just ignore it like they do racism and police brutality because dog fighting, rape, murder or DUI’s haven’t made them turn the channel, but a peaceful protest is where they draw the line. Why? Because they’ve been “SOLD” on the idea patriotism is standing at attention, placing their right hand over their heart and singing the Star-Spangled Banner while absently mindedly gazing at a red white and blue piece of cloth emblazoned with stars and stripes.

Our entire system which includes our government, media, voting, and Internet services are corrupt and rigged by the people behind the curtain running everything! Common media for transmitting PROPAGANDA messages include news reports, government reports, historical revision, junk science, books, leaflets, movies, radio, television, and posters.

The media isn’t here to tell you what happened. It’s not here to tell YOU what you want to hear nor what it thinks YOU want to hear. Media is to tell you what to think.

• Who are the people behind the curtain who own ALL media?
• Why are they promoting this agenda?
• What are they really selling you?

As HighImpactFlix said in his YouTube video above

“By conditioning people to focus on symbols that can just as easily be used on any other country, the same countries that American people have been brainwashed to hate for no real reason at all, mostly lies, in reality has been successfully engineered into our society because that line of thinking keeps the people from talking about and going after their real enemy, the same enemy of all people throughout history, government. Governments locked this obedience into place even further by pretending that mundane things like flags and songs represent other things. Advertising works, in fact, it works so well that advertisers take huge chunks of money to sell people on the idea their product or service is worth your devotion and of course your money”

Snopes May Shut Down

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe


http://www.businessinsider.com/snopes-shutting-down-hostage-advertiser-2017-7

Seriously one of the most prominent sites calling out fake news may shut down because it’s being held ‘hostage’ by an ad vendor withholding advertising revenue???

Snopes is not a credible or authoritative source of information; they’re only good at debunking chain emails such as Neiman Marcus cookie recipes and far-flung urban legends.

It’s been circulated Snopes husband and wife founder’s Barbara and David P. Mikkelsen utilized Google for their research although archived articles recognizes a majority of articles are erroneous, inaccurate and categorically untrue.

The Mikkelsen’s were in a contentious divorce in 2016 which continues to this day as a bitter legal dispute due to the accusation of David embezzling $98,000 from the company and is attempting a ‘boondoggle’ to change tax arrangements while David claims Barbara took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas.

Barbara Mikkelsen has since sold her 50% of the business to ad agency Proper Media who make money by generating millions of views on 3rd-party advertisements and recently teamed up with Facebook which has allowed Proper Media to become an arbitrator of the fake news circulating on their network; essentially elevating them as an authoritative source of information. So it simply makes sense for them to seek out viral articles to “debunk”, so they can piggy-back on the traffic and spawn more advertising dollars.

Additionally, Snopes has allegedly hired a team of suspect fact checkers who collaborate to debunk trending falsehoods; these fact checkers reportedly have no editorial oversight and do not follow standard journalistic procedures such as interviewing authors of articles. Snopes purportedly doesn’t have a formal screening process for hiring fact checkers or evaluating applicants for any potential conflicts of interest, and without such standards, it’s clear they can easily be infiltrated by those working within an industry with a hidden agenda.

Our entire system including government, media, voting, and internet services are corrupt and rigged by the people behind the curtains running the show. So just leave the real news for *real news outlets* [sic] using common media for transmitting propaganda messages including news reports, government information, historical revisions, junk science, books, leaflets, movies, radio, television, and social media journalists… LOL

Abolish Vaccines

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Thank you Rudy TwoMoon

Most people are not made aware what ingredients are contained in vaccines — and even if they’re told, they may not fully understand what that particular ingredient is or what it means. This list is to help those individuals better understand what they are injecting into the bodies of their loved ones.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: ALUMINUM
Aluminum is a carcinogen. It is a cardiovascular (blood) toxicant, neurotoxicant, and respiratory toxicant. It has been implicated as a cause of brain damage, and is a suspected factor in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, convulsions, and comas. It has been placed on at least 2 federal regulatory lists. It is well known in alternative medicine as a toxic and accumulative heavy metal.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: 2-PHENOXYETHANOL
This is a carcinogen. It is a developmental and reproductive toxicant. It is also a metabolic poison, which means that it interferes with the metabolism of all cells. This is the primary factor in the formation of cancer cells. It is capable of disabling the immune system’s primary response. It also contains phenol (see below).

VACCINE INGREDIENT: PHENOL
This is a carcinogen, and a cardiovascular and blood toxicant. It is also known as carbolic acid. It is a developmental toxin, gastrointestinal toxin, liver toxin, kidney toxin, neurotoxin, respiratory toxin, skin and sense organ toxin. It has been placed on at least 8 federal regulatory watch lists.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: METHANOL
This is a volatile, flammable, poisonous liquid alcohol. It is used as a solvent in industry, and as an antifreeze compound in fuel. In the body it is metabolized into formaldehyde (described earlier). Whilst it can be found naturally in the pectin that is present in some common fruits, the naturally-occurring variant is only in minute quantities, and the organic form is not known to cause any harmful effects.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: BORAX (SODIUM TETRABORATE DECAHYDRATE)
This was traditionally used as a pesticide. It is suspected to be a cardiovascular or blood toxicant, endocrine toxicant, gastrointestinal toxicant, liver toxicant and neurological toxicant. It was found to cause reproductive damage and reduced fertility in rats. It is already banned in foods in the United States due to its toxicity; but astonishingly, it is still allowed for direct injection into the blood through vaccines. It is toxic to all cells, and it has a slow excretion rate through the kidneys. Kidney retention and toxicity are the greatest. It has a cascading effect after causing kidney impairment, causing liver degeneration, cerebral edema, and gastroenteritis.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: GLUTARALDEHYDE
Glutaraldehyde is always toxic, causing severe eye, nose, throat and lung irritations, along with headaches, drowsiness, and dizziness. The effects mirror the chemical warfare agent known as nerve gas. It is poisonous if ingested, and it is known to cause birth defects in experimental animals. The effects of direct injection into the blood to bypass the process of digestion are unknown. It is often used to clean medical equipment. In hospital accidents involving environmental exposure, it has been known to cause the following symptoms:
Throat and lung irritation
Breathing difficulty
Nose irritation, sneezing, and wheezing
Nosebleeds
Burning eyes and conjunctivitis
Rash-contact and/or allergic dermatitis
Discoloring skin (brownish or tan)
Hives
Headaches
Nausea

VACCINE INGREDIENT: MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG)
Monosodium glutamate is a flavor enhancer. In a 1995 report by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, two groups of people were defined as intolerant of MSG. This includes those who eat large quantities of MSG and those with “poorly controlled asthma”. Our research indicates that anyone can suffer after consuming monosodium glutamate; especially if they are deficient in either taurine or magnesium. In the 1995 report, which was contracted by the F.D.A., there was public admission that MSG yields the following symptoms:
Burning sensation in the back of the neck, forearms and chest
Numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back
Tingling, warmth, and weakness in the face, temples, upper back, neck and arms
Facial pressure or tightness
Chest pain
Headache
Nausea
Rapid heartbeat
Bronchospasms (difficulty breathing)
Drowsiness
Weakness

Note that this is the short list (the one with side effects that the F.D.A. actually admits) and it does not consider the higher toxicity of direct injection into the blood. The long list, which is 15 times longer, includes heart attacks. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in rapid damage to nerve cells in the brain. MSG is in a special class of chemicals called excitotoxins, which are known to directly attack brain cells. In 1978, MSG was banned from baby foods and other baby products that were produced for children who were less than one year of age, because the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Academy of Sciences expressed concerns. It is now being used in these products again, in addition to being added to childhood vaccines.

VACCINE INGREDIENTS: SULFATE AND PHOSPHATE COMPOUNDS
These can trigger severe allergies in children, which may last throughout their lives to permanently impair their immune systems.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: AMMONIUM SULFATE
This is yet another carcinogen. Ammonium sulfate is prepared by mixing ammonia with sulfuric acid. It is used as a chemical fertilizer for alkaline soils to lower the pH. In the body, it stresses the immune system by causing acidosis. Ammonium sulfate is also a liver toxicant, neurotoxicant, and respiratory toxicant.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: YEAST PROTEIN aka CANDIDA ALBICANS
Can take over and slowly destroy you
digestive system, your immunity, and drain you of your energy and health — often leading to the following symptoms: Tiredness after eating. Constipation, diarrhea, or other forms of bowel irregularities. Candida albicans overgrowth may be a major player in a number of health conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, alcoholism, anxiety disorders, food allergies, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and a host of other autoimmune conditions.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: GENTAMICIN SULFATE
This is a strong antibiotic that is often used for life-threatening illnesses like pneumonia. The known side effects follow:
Muscle twitching
Numbness
Seizures
Elevated blood pressure
Purpura P
Pseudotumor cerebri
Photosensitivity when used topically
Transient irritation
Vesicular and maculopapular dermatitis
Stinging
Bacterial/fungal corneal ulcers.
Nonspecific conjunctivitis
Inflammation
Angioneurotic edema
Urticaria
Alopecia
Burning
Mydriasis
Conjunctival paresthesia
Conjunctival hyperemia
Conjunctival epithelial defects
Eyelid itching and swelling
Itching

VACCINE INGREDIENT: NEOMYCIN SULFATE
We can only speculate about what damage this causes when injected directly into the blood of infants. It interferes with vitamin B-6 absorption, which is the cause of a rare form of epilepsy, and mental retardation. Adult patients given neomycin as an antibiotic are typically placed under close clinical observation (e.g. hospitalized), so that intensive care intervention is immediately available. Neurotoxicity has been reported, along with nephrotoxicity, and permanent bilateral auditory ototoxicity. Sometimes vestibular toxicity is present in patients with normal renal function when treated with higher or longer doses than recommended

VACCINE INGREDIENT: TRI(N)BUTYLPHOSPHATE
This is yet another carcinogen. This is a kidney toxicant and a neurotoxicant. It is more hazardous than most chemicals in 2 out of 3 ranking systems. It is on at least 1 federal regulatory list.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: MERCURY
Mercury was removed from some vaccines and replaced with aluminum. Other vaccines, like the flu shot, still contain mercury under the name thimerosal. Thimerosal is 49% ethyl mercury. Mercury is 1,000 times more toxic than lead, and it is still present in a number of vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.
Heavy metal poisoning from lead, mercury and other similar heavy metals manifest lesions on neurological tissues, meaning the toxin destroys the nerve/communication pathways connecting the brain to the organs in the body.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: METHYLPARABEN
A 2004 study published by the Journal of Applied Toxicology, 18 of 20 malignant breast tumors showed high concentrations of parabens, which are known to mimic estrogen in the body and affect the growth of breast tissue. Compounds containing parabens can cause decreased sperm production and motility.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: POLYMYXIN B
This is another antibiotic. Injection of this is generally avoided by doctors (except in the case of vaccines) due to “severe pain at injection sites, particularly in infants and children”.
Known side effects:
Albuminuria
Cylindruria
Azotemia
Facial flushing
Dizziness progressing to ataxia
Drowsiness
Peripheral paresthesias (circumoral and stocking-glove)
Apnea
Signs of meningeal irritation with intrathecal administration

VACCINE INGREDIENT: POLYSORBATE 20 / 80 EMULSIFIER
This is a known skin and sense organ toxin. It is verified as a cancer agent in animals.
Vaccine Ingredient: Sorbitol (Sweetener)
Diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy may be related to excess sorbitol in the cells of the eyes and nerves, leading to blindness. This is another suspected carcinogen. Sorbitol is a gastrointestinal and liver toxicant.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: POLYRIBOSYLRIBITOL
This is an experimental artificial sweetener. The experimentation is ongoing in children, without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: BETA-PROPIOLACTONE
Documented as a verified carcinogen. It is a gastrointestinal and liver toxicant, respiratory toxicant, skin toxicant, and sense organ toxicant. It is more hazardous than most chemicals earning a 3 out of 3 in ranking systems. It appears on at least 5 federal regulatory lists. It is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds to humans.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: AMPHOTERICIN B
This can cause irreversible kidney damage, and mild liver failure. It has been known to produce severe histamine (allergic) reactions. There are several reports of anemia and cardiac failure. It is used used to treat fungus infections. Other side effects include blood clots, blood defects, kidney problems, nausea and fever. When used on the skin, allergic reactions can occur.

VACCINE INGREDIENTS: ANIMAL ORGAN TISSUE AND ANIMAL BLOOD
Animal cell lines are used to culture the viruses in vaccines, so animal tissues and impurities are included in the formulation that is injected. Animal tissues are unusable and toxic to the body except for when their protein materials are digested to form amino acids through normal food consumption. There is no digestion process for injections. Injections may also contain many types of animal viruses (see the Animal Viruses section). Animals used include monkey (kidney), cow (heart), calf (serum), chicken (embryo and egg), duck (egg), pig (blood), sheep (blood), dog (kidney), horse (blood), rabbit (brain), and guinea pig.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: LARGE FOREIGN PROTEINS
*****—————————-*****
In addition to the animal tissue impurities, there are large proteins that are deliberately included, and used for such purposes as adjuvants (substances that aggravate an immune response using their inherent toxicity). Egg albumin and gelatin (or gelatine, obtained from selected pieces of calf and cattle skins, demineralized cattle bones and pork skin) are in several vaccines. Casein (a milk protein) is in the triple antigen (DPT) vaccine. When injected, these normally harmless proteins are toxic to the body. Hence the immune system “response”. The immune system is intentionally stressed by this invasion to produce an unnatural sensitization to all of the ingredients. This explains why bizarre allergies such as lactose intolerance, along with egg and nut allergies have suddenly become common in recent history.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: LATEX
Latex is included in the hepatitis B vaccine, which is routinely given to health workers. The high occurrence of latex allergies among nurses is due to their sensitization to latex through the large amount that is injected into them. These vaccines produce a panicked immune response. The nurses will suffer with this allergy permanently. Such allergic reactions can be life-threatening. The hepatitis B vaccine is now routinely given to newborn babies in many countries, including Australia and the United States.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: ANIMAL VIRUSES
Some of these can be particularly alien to the human body. The most frequently documented and publicized example is the monkey virus SV40. The virus is harmless in monkeys, but it stimulates rare cancers when injected into humans to produce brain cancer, bone (multiple myeloma), lungs (mesothelioma), and lymphoid tissue (lymphoma). Monkey virus SV40 has only appeared in people born in the last 20 years (The Journal of Infectious Diseases, Sept. 1999), long after the manufacturer claimed to have “cleaned up” the polio vaccines where it was initially found. Such cases include the late Alexander Horwin, whose parents tested negative for SV40. Therefore, recent cases cannot just be blamed on inheritance from parents who received the vaccine. Manufacturers are secretly including the virus again.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: HUMAN VIRUSES
The live viruses found in some vaccines are frequently said to be killed, inactivated, or attenuated. This is a myth. The main method used to inactivate viruses is treatment with formaldehyde. Its effectiveness is limited and temporary. Once the brew is injected into the body, the formaldehyde is broken down: potentially releasing the virus in its original state. It is documented in orthodox medical literature that the “crippled” viruses can revert to their former virulence.

The viruses and bacteria included in vaccines are claimed to be in very small volume. However, these quantities are high enough for the diseases to occur in some people. Most of the diseases that people are vaccinated against no longer occur in the Western world, and only ever result from the vaccines. When they do occur, the vaccine-induced cases are always more severe than normal infections of the same pathogens, and these cases are sometimes fatal. Deaths have been reported in the British medical journal, Lancet, from vaccine-induced yellow fever. A susceptible person may succumb to infection when exposed to only a minute dose, especially when it is injected directly into the bloodstream. Conversely, there are other cases in which a healthy person will not succumb, even when exposed to large doses environmentally. It is not the pathogens, but the interaction methods between pathogens and hosts which causes diseases to appear, and ultimately determines their severity.

Most disease symptoms are the visible signs of a body’s attempts to defend itself against the infection. With disease injections, many important defenses in the digestion path and mucous membranes are bypassed.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: MYCOPLASMA
These are microscopic organisms lacking rigid cell walls and they are considered to be the smallest free-moving organisms. Many are pathogenic, and one species is the cause of mycoplasma pneumonia which interestingly, is noted to occur only “in children and young adults”, according to Mosby’s Medical Dictionary. This is not simply in vaccines by accident. It is deliberately added as an adjuvant (to increase the immune system’s allergic response) to the vaccine.

VACCINE INGREDIENT: GENETICALLY ENGINEERED YEAST
This is in the hepatitis B vaccine. Given the controversy over the ingestion of genetically modified foods, how much more dangerous could the direct injection of them be?

VACCINE INGREDIENT: FOREIGN DNA
DNA is used from such organisms as animals, viruses, fungi, and bacteria. It has been documented that injecting foreign DNA can cause it, or a portion of it, to be incorporated into the recipient’s DNA. The horrendous long-term multi-generational implications defy the imagination.

So doing some math — the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA:
8 pound, healthy baby: 18.16 mcg of aluminum
15 pound, healthy baby: 34.05 mcg of aluminum
30 pound, healthy toddler: 68.1 mcg of aluminum
50 pound, healthy child: 113 mcg of aluminum
150 pound adult: 340.5 mcg of aluminum
350 pound adult: 794.5 mcg of aluminum
So how much aluminum is in the vaccines that are routinely given to children?
Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – 225 mcg per shot
Hepatitis B – 250 mcg
DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 mcg
Pneumococcus – 125 mcg
Hepatitis A – 250 mcg
HPV – 225 mcg
Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – 330 mcg
Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – 850 mcg

At birth, most children are given the hepatitis B vaccination. The amount of aluminum in the Hepatitis B vaccine alone is almost 14 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALUMINUM THAT IS FDA-APPROVED.
At well-child check-ups, it’s common for 2 month, 4 month, 6 month etc., appointments to include up to 8 vaccinations that add up to more than 1,000 mcg of aluminum. Look at the chart above and notice that that amount isn’t even safe for a 350 pound adult. And many children get up to 8 vaccinations a visit several times a year!

According to the FDA and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), what happens if a child receives more than the maximum required dose of aluminum?

Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic.
Aluminum can cause neurological harm.

Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidney’s or kidney disorders or in premature babies. (How many children are tested to see if their kidney’s are functioning properly before they are vaccinated? Could this also be why the Hepatitis B shot, given to infants at birth, has been linked to SIDS? Neonatal Deaths After Hep B vaccination.)

[Aluminum Toxicity in Infants and Children, Committee on Nutrition,American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatrics Volume 97, Number 3 March, 1996, pp. 413-416]

What are amino acids? Put simply, amino acids are the building blocks of proteins in our bodies and they make up over 3/4 of the human body. There are 20 amino acids found naturally in the body and 8 that are considered “essential” for humans because our bodies cannot create them naturally, and therefore must be taken into our bodies by diet. (This becomes a *great* selling point for certain diets or food products).

So injecting amino acids into the body by way of vaccination is good, yes? Wrong.

VACCINES ARE CALLED ANTIGENS — “A toxin or other foreign substance that induces an immune response in the body, especially the production of antibodies.” Antigens are made from foreign proteins. These foreign proteins are produced from animals (like cows, monkey’s and chickens) and also humans (human cells from aborted fetuses.)

Foreign proteins (in order to be beneficial to the body) need to first be digested in the GI tract. Protein is broken down into amino acids during the digestion process.

“When we eat protein it is broken down into its constituent amino acids…if a foreign animal protein makes it into our bloodstream without having being broken down this can set up an autoimmune type response…By injecting things never meant to be in the body we are not only bypassing body defenses but wrongly activating other defenses.” — Dr. Robyn Crosford

So what’s the outcome if you inject amino acids and/or foreign animal and human protein into the body instead of first digesting the proteins to make amino acids naturally?

AUTO-IMMUNE DISORDERS
like Addison’s disease, celiac disease – sprue (gluten-sensitive enteropathy), dermatomyositis, Graves disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, pernicious anemia, reactive arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, type I diabetes etc.
Food allergies or food sensitivities associated with eggs, gluten, peanuts, milk, etc.

FORMALDEHYDE (OR FORMALIN):
I personally became aware of what formaldehyde is most commonly used for by our local mortician several years ago. After my son died, we met with the funeral directors to begin planning our son’s funeral. During our grief-ridden conversations, we came to the conclusion that we needed to wait a week to have the funeral. My father-in-law had graciously offered to make his casket from scratch, and that takes time (the project ended up including all of my brother’s-in-laws and sister’s-in-law, my dad, my brother, my mom, and my mother-in-law). Knowing the time constraints from death to burial, (or at least what I thought I knew) I thought this might be an issue. The funeral director (also the head mortician) assured us it would not be a problem because the formalin used in the embalming process would preserve his precious little body so that we wouldn’t need to worry about the concern of waiting a week. “What’s Formalin?” I asked? “Formaldehyde,” he answered. When I learned that Formaldehyde was an ingredient in vaccines, it made me a little sick to my stomach.

Formalin is an aqueous, or watery, form of Formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde is toxic and is known to cause cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen [International Agency for Research on Cancer (June 2004). IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans Volume 88 (2006): Formaldehyde, 2-

BUTOXYETHANOL AND 1-TERT-BUTOXYPROPAN-2-OL. Retrieved June 10, 2011, from:
http://monographs.iarc.fr/ENG/Monographs/vol88/index.php] .
In 2011, the National Toxicology Program, an interagency program of the Department of Health and Human Services, named formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen in its 12th Report on Carcinogens [National Toxicology Program (June 2011). Report on Carcinogens, Twelfth Edition. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, National Toxicology Program. Retrieved June 10, 2011, from:
http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/roc12 ].

ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL:
Fewer than 20% but perhaps more than 10% of the general population may be susceptible to formaldehyde allergies
and may react acutely at any exposure level.

FORMALDEHYDE is oxidised to formic acid which leads to acidosis and nerve damage. Acidosis can be described as a condition in which the acidity of the body tissues and fluids is abnormally high. The liver and the kidneys may also be damaged.

Other known side effects from exposure to formaldehyde:
Alters tissue proteins
anaemia
antibodies formation
apathy
blood in urine
body aches
cardiac impairment
palpitations and arrhythmias
central nervous system depression
changes in higher cognitive functions
chest pains and tightness
colds
coma
constipation
convulsions
death
destruction of red blood cells
depression
diarrhoea
difficulty concentrating
disorientation
dizziness
ear aches
eczema
emotional upsets
fatigue
foetal asphyxiation [SIDS, perhaps?]
flu-like or cold like illness
UTI
gastritis
gastrointestinal inflammation
headaches
hyperactivity
hypomenstrual syndrome
immune system sensitiser
impaired (short) attention span
inability to recall words and names
inconsistent IQ profiles
asthma
irritability
jaundice
retarded speech pattern
schizophrenic-type symptoms
sensitivity to sound

[Chronic Exposure and Human Health] Keep in mind that chronic exposure –from the source — means “exposed several times”.

BENZETHONIUM CHLORIDE

Benzethonium Chloride (referred to as “BC”) is an anti-microbial agent used as a preservative in some vaccines. There has been no testing done on humans to find out information regarding the injection of BC into the blood stream. I have been searching for over a year with no luck in finding any such information. What has been documented about BC under the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) under section 11 is that it is toxic when inhaled or ingested and is also hazardous to human skin. Based on animal testing, it may cause mutations in genetic information and also be carcinogenic (cause cancer).

The known side effects of ingesting BC are (according to it’s MSDS):
Seizures
Coma
Respiratory depression
Central Nervous System Depression
Convulsions
Coma
Urinary system reaction
Raise your hand if you agree BC should be tested more thoroughly. After all, we are injecting our children with this.
Glutaraldehyde
Glutaraldehyde is an organic compound that is used to disinfect medical and dental equipment. In vaccines it is used as a chemical preservative. There have been several studies done on Glutaraldehyde and it has been found that exposure to it can cause:
Asthma
Allergic reactions (up to 10% of up people can be allergic to Glutaraldehyde.)
Induced respiratory issues
diarrhea

MRC-5, DNA, MRC-5 Cellular Protein, Human Serum Albumin (4 different ingredients)

All of these derive from either human tissue or human blood.
MRC-5, MRC-5 Cellular Protein

To explain MRC-5, let’s look at a brief history before MRC-5 came about. In 1964, during an outbreak of Rubella, some doctors urged women who had been exposed to the Rubella virus to abort their pregnancy. (Why? Rubella is an extremely mild virus [see: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002541/]. Most people don’t show any symptoms, especially children, some may get a rash all over their body. Rubella becomes dangerous when a pregnant woman is exposed to the virus because it has the potential to cause severe abnormalities in the child.) From one of these aborted children that had been exposed to Rubella Virus, doctors developed a virus strain that became known as RA/27/3 — Rubella; Abortus; 27th aborted fetus; 3rd tissue explant. In other words, it took 26 aborted infants to get the right strain. The virus was then cultivated on the lung tissue of another aborted child, and this child became known as WI-38 — Winster Institute 38). WI -38 was an infant girl at 3 months gestation. What makes this seem somewhat ridiculous is that the Japanese, years before the first aborted infant was used to extract the Rubella virus, proved that the virus can be taken from a *living* child simply by swabbing their throat.

In the 1970’s, a second human cell line was created from an infant boy at 14 weeks gestation and became known as

MRC-5.
WI-38 and MRC-5 have become the most used cell lines to make vaccinations. Labs currently use these 2 cell lines, as well as new sources (a.k.a new aborted infants) to create new vaccines.
The use of tissue from aborted infants has caused heated debate because it is ethically questionable. Pro-life groups, which include many churches and parents whose morals condemn profiting from aborted infants, continue to fight the pharmaceutical companies to produce vaccines that do not contain this tissue. And the thing is, it’s possible. Vaccines can be made from other sources.

DNA
DNA is harvested from aborted infants. It is used as adjuvant in vaccines. In vaccines, 100,000,000 bits and strands of human dna are allowed per dose. Again, we encounter the issue of the ethical dilemma for this issue.

HUMAN SERUM ALBUMIN
Human Serum Albumin is a stabilizing protein made from human blood donated by screened donors. We already discussed above why injecting a protein directly into the body is dangerous.

WITH THAT ASIDE, LET’S LOOK AT THE POINTS WE REACH REGARDING THESE 4 DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS:
We have human DNA, human cell lines from aborted infants, and protein from human blood in 23 of our vaccines. When we need a blood transfusion, or a blood donation of some kind, what is absolutely required? A match, correct? For example, if a person with type O blood receives type A+ blood, the outcome is fatal. There are rules of science that cannot be crossed regarding DNA and blood. It is imperative to be tested when receiving any type of tissue or blood to ensure that a fatal blood or tissue type isn’t put into your body. So may I ask: How many of you or your children were given a blood test before receiving vaccinations? We all know the answer to that. It doesn’t happen. The outcome to mixing and NOT matching human blood and tissue with other humans can be virtually disastrous. Remember that every one of those 4 ingredients have human DNA in them. Even after the protein is extracted from human blood, DNA remains.

THIMEROSAL
Thimerosal is a compound made up of approximately 50% mercury. Mercury is the second most poisonous element known to man (next to uranium and its derivatives.) When someone says, “MERCURY!” we immediately think of the news stories about the child at school who broke a thermometer in biology class and the HAZ-MAT team was called in and all the students were in peril. Did you know they make that big of a deal (meaning bringing in the HAZ-MAT crew) for less mercury than what is contained in 1 vaccine http://www.epa.gov/mercury/spills/index.htm ? Thimerosal is used as a preservative in vaccines to help prevent bacteria growth in multi-use vaccines. It is also used in the creation process of a vaccine, and then through a purification process it is “removed” and only “trace” amounts are left. First, I urge you to read this article: Is There Thimerosal in the Flu Vaccine?

Next, let’s discuss what “trace amounts” means. (If you notice in the document above next to many of the “Thimerosal”‘s, there is an asterisk next to it. The asterisk notates that ” *Where “thimerosal” is marked with an asterisk (*) it indicates that the product should be considered equivalent to thimerosal-free products.”)

Before we move on, a little story — I was at the grocery store a little while ago looking at a large bag of “Stevia” — the new fad in no-calorie sweeteners. I was reading the back of the bag and I came to a little spot at the bottom that said “Each serving contains less than 2 calories which the FDA considers dietetically zero.” What?! That doesn’t even make sense! If something is said to be “calorie-free”, it should be calorie-free, right?? If something has calories in it, it has calories in it. You cannot place some carrots on the counter and tell me there are no carrots on the counter. A serving size of Stevia is 1tsp, so let’s assume that 1 tsp contains 1.9 calories. Remember, we have to assume because we DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW. It’s the FDA that says the calories in Stevia don’t exist, but just for the mere fact that there is this disclaimer on the bag lets us know that there are, in fact, carrots on the counter… er, I mean calories in the bag. But going back, we’re going to say there are 1.9 calories per serving. Using Stevia is “cup for cup.” In other words, you use the same amount of Stevia as you would regular sugar. So, I’m going to make some fantabulous “low-calorie” chocolate chip cookies with my “no-calorie” Stevia. I’m on a strict diet, so all I need to add up to find out how many calories are in my batch of cookies are all of my ingredients EXCEPT sugar, right? But wait… I’m adding 2 cups of Stevia into my batch of cookies. There are 48 teaspoons in a cup, which means I’m adding 96 teaspoons of Stevia — which also would equate to 182.4 EXTRA calories. There’s no argument that it has greatly reduced the number of calories in my batch of cookies versus using conventional sugar, but the fact remains: NO-CALORIE IS NOT NO-CALORIE.

So the fact that those vaccines containing thimerosal with an asterisk beside it virtually says the same thing and is extremely misleading. They should be “considered equivalent to thimerosal-free products” gives the illusion that there is no thimerosal in vaccines, or at least not enough to have to worry about. But remember, if I eat 8 batches of my cookies that are supposed to be low calorie because of my “calorie-free” Stevia, I’m actually consuming 1,459.2 calories that the FDA says aren’t really there. This can be applied to vaccines as well. Many “well-child” check-ups include up to 8 vaccines in one sitting.

So how much does “trace” mean? According to the CDC, it says less than or equal to 0.3mcg per dose. Sailhome.org ;does a nice job of putting this into perspective:
• 2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water
• 200 ppb mercury in liquid waste renders it a toxic hazard
• 25,000 ppb is found in infant flu shots
• 50,000 ppb is found in regular flu shots — recommended for children, pregnant women, the elderly…

Also the math on how many ppb in a “thimerosal free” vaccine:
0.3 mcg / 0.5mL =
0.3 mcg / .0005L =
…3,000 mcg / 5L =
600 mcg / L
1 mg/KG = 1 PPM (formal definition of PPM)
1 L = 1 KG (density of water or saline solution)
1 mcg/L = 1 PPB (because 1 KG and 1 L of water are equivalent)

THEREFORE:
600 mcg / L =
600 ppb Thimerosal in the “thimerosal-free” vaccine
Flu vaccine has “only” 25 mcg Thimerosal. The shot is 0.5mL. Let’s do some math:
25 mcg / 0.5mL =
25 mcg / .0005L =
250,000 mcg / 5L =
50,000 mcg / L
1 mcg / L = 1 ppb, therefore
The shot has 50,000 ppb of Thimerosal

Remember that 2 ppb mercury is the mandated limit in drinking water and normally 200 ppb would label something a toxic hazard.

YEAST EXTRACT/MSG
Yeast extract is a common name used for various forms of processed yeast. Many people have yeast allergies, and vaccines can induce an anaphylactic response after being vaccinated due to the yeast.
Aside from that, ALL yeast extract contains MSG. Many people have either an allergy or a sensitivity to MSG (I am one of them). MSG has been known to cause:
Migraine headaches
Sleeping disorders
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Asthma
Diabetes
Alzheimer’s disease
Lou Gehrig’s disease
Attention Deficit Disorder
Seizure
Stroke
Anaphylactic reaction

EGG PROTEIN
We already discussed under Amino Acids why injecting protein directly into the body is harmful. Aside from that, individuals allergic to eggs can have a serious reaction to vaccines that contain egg protein. What’s interesting is that many parents don’t know that vaccines contain egg products, and doctor’s virtually never reveal that information (if they are actually aware themselves), even if they know that vaccines contain egg products. When a child with an egg allergy has a reaction to a vaccine, doctor’s often deny the fact that it’s even a *possibility* that the vaccine caused the reaction.

CETYLTRIMETHYLAMMONIUM BROMIDE (CTMB)
Cetyltrimethylammonium Bromide is a cationic surfactant. It’s used for many things, including acting as a buffer solution for extracting DNA. According to it’s Safety Data Sheet we find out several things:
CTMB is labeled as “Hazardous”
It is a skin irritant
It is a serious eye irritant
It is hazardous if inhaled
It is harmful if swallowed
It may cause respiratory irritation
It is dangerous to the environment
It is very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects
It is flammable

In almost all cases of any kind of contact with CTMB, it advises to contact a medical professional and it advises that CTMB should never touch any part of the human body. It also gives precautionary information and equipment to use/wear during handling CTMB. Under section 8 Exposure Controls/personal protection, it advises to:
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

This sounds like some pretty serious stuff, and millions of children and adults are getting this injected into their bodies

In the “general information” for CTMB, it explains that “Symptoms of poisoning may even occur after several hours” and the patient should be observed for up to 48 hours after coming into contact with it. (How many children have a reaction to a vaccine that isn’t immediate or even on the first day? Hundreds. And yet if the reaction isn’t immediate, medical professional dismiss the possibility of a vaccine reaction even faster.)

2-PHENOXYETHANOL
2-Phenoxyethoanol is used as an antibacterial agent in vaccines. According to the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet), we find that it is toxic if swallowed, inhaled, absorbed through the skin, it is a severe skin and eye irritant, and it may cause reproductive defects [http://www.sciencelab.com/msds.php?msdsId=9926486 ]. According to the EPA data sheets, it has shown to cause chromosomal changes and genetic mutations in tests, as well as testicular atrophy and interference with reproductivity in mice [http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/glycol2000.pdf ].

The known side effects of 2-Phenoxyethanol exposure are:
Headache
Shock
Convulsions
Weakness
Kidney damage
Cardiac failure
Kidney failure
Death

Dr. Hugh Fudenberg M.D., Ph.D., author of over 80 research papers in Medicine, Biology and Immunology. If a person has had 5 consecutive flu shots their chance of contracting Alzheimer’s disease is 10X’s higher than the non-vaccinated person. Mercury toxicity can result in brain injury and auto-immune disease. Aluminum is associated with Alzheimer’s disease and seizures. Formaldehyde causes cancer and is considered hazardous waste which is no longer permitted as an ingredient in insulation.

What do peanuts have in common with vaccines is something very few healthcare consumers and medical doctors may be aware of: Peanut oil is a hidden, and non-stated ingredient in the manufacture of children’s vaccines. Pentacel vaccine: Aluminum phosphate, bovine serum albumin, formaldehyde, glutaraldhyde, MRC-5, DNA and cellular protein, neomycin, polymyxin b sulfate, polysorbate 80, 2-phenoxyethanol. Yeast protein a potent allergen and peanut oil are used as adjuvants but not listed on the vaccine inserts. In 1964 Merck produced the adjuvant 65-4 containing up to 65 percent peanut oil plus Arlasel A, aluminum stearate, and other ingredients with 13-fold higher levels of antibodies than previous vaccines. During the 1970s and 1980s peanut oil became a common practice and ingredient in vaccines. Coincidentally, peanut allergies began rising exponentially in children as more vaccines were administered. Maybe because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers refined peanut oil as GRAS (generally recognized as safe), vaccine manufacturers think it safe to use as a vaccine adjuvant while not recognizing the differences in physiology and function between food protein sources that are gut-digested from those syringed directly into the bloodstream.

83% of Vaccines Are Made in China with FDA inspections of the manufactures every 13 (THIRTEEN) years (as opposed to every 2 years with domestic manufacturers). They’ve proven they can’t even make safe PET FOOD or toothpaste. Their toys were caught with lead in the paint. There is no quality control and there is top to bottom corruption. China’s food and drug safety record in recent years hardly inspires confidence: in 2007, Chinese cough syrup killed 93 people in Central America; one year later, contaminated blood thinner led to dozens of deaths in the United States while tainted milk powder poisoned hundreds of thousands of Chinese babies and killed six.

US Vax Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout: Vaccine court settlement payouts increased in total $91.2 million in 2015, up from $22.8 million in 2014 to $114 million in 2015 — a 400% increase. Vaccine court settlement payments for flu shots increased the most, from $4.9 million in 2014 to $61 million in 2015 — an increase of more than 1000%, despite autumnal onslaughts every year of media/pr/advertising campaigns urging Americans to ‘get your flu shot,’ with total abandon for the statistical facts coming out of the vaccine court. Varicella (chicken pox) had the third biggest increase — from $0 in 2014 to $5.8 million in 2015. (No surprise shingles is on the rise among the elderly population, as recently vaccinated grandchildren continuously shed live virus to their unsuspecting elders.) Hepatitis B was the fourth largest increase in vaccine court settlements, increasing 321% in 2015 to more than $8 million in 2015 from $1.9 million in 2014.TDap/DTP/DPT and D/T shots were the fifth largest increase, leaping 75% in 2014 from $5.5 million to $9.8. Tetanus, $4 million; HPV $3.4 million, up from almost nothing in 2014 (one to watch in January when the 2016 report is issued); MMR, which actually decreased from the number one position last year to under $1 m — an 88%+ decrease in payouts; pertussis, $1.7 million; thimerisol $1.5 million; HIB, $345k, menginococal $500k, HEP A $408k, DPT & Polio, $210k & rotovirus $76k.

DR. RICHARD PAN – Medical extremist repeatedly violates the AMA code of ethics and believes in forced vaccination at gunpoint
Here is a list of his offenses already committed:
• Took tens of thousands of dollars in campaign money from drug companies.
• Aggressively pushed California’s SB 277 radical vaccine mandate which eliminates vaccines exemptions and obliterates medical choice.
• Is a believer in “medical extremism” invoking highly unethical, government-forced interventions violating established medical ethics and fundamental human rights.
• Violates the American Medical Association’s Code of Medical Ethics which demands informed consent and a patient’s choice on all medical interventions.
• Blatantly lies about the issue of mercury in vaccines, falsely claiming mercury has been removed from all vaccines given to children.
• Falsely claims vaccines are completely safe, even when vaccines routinely cause brain damage, autism, comas, seizures and even death.
• Denies the children of California their right to a public education unless their parents surrender to the demands of the corrupt, criminally-run vaccine industry.
• Serves as a puppet of the pharmaceutical industry, an industry steeped in admitted felony crimes, bribery, price fixing, experimentation on humans and other large-scale crimes.

If You Say I’m Antisemitic

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

Thank you Rudy TwoMoon

If you say I’m antisemitic, what your really saying is, I’m anti language of these people: Sumerians, Elamites, Hattians, Hurrians, Lullubi, Gutians, Urartians and Kassites. Indo-European language speakers included; Hittites, Greeks, Luwians, Mitanni, Kaskians, Phrygians, Lydians, Philistines, Persians, Medes, Scythians, Cimmerians, Parthians, Cilicians, Armenians, Kartvelian, Colchians, Tabalites and Georgians, derived from the lands or these people: Asia Minor, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Ahlamu; Akkadian (including Assyrian and Babylonian, Amharic; Amalekite; Ammonite; Amorite; Arabic; Aramaic/Syriac; the Canaanite languages (Phoenician, Punic or Carthaginian and Hebrew); Assyrian; Chaldean; Eblaite; Edomite; Ge’ez; Old South Arabian; Modern South Arabian languages; Maltese; Mandaic; Moabite; Proto-Sinaitic; Sutean; Syriac; Tigre and Tigrinya; and Ugaritic.

The term Semitic (from the biblical “Shem”, Hebrew: שם) was first used in 1848 to refer to a family of languages native to West Asia (the Middle East).

Antisemitic – the term was popularized in Germany in 1873 as a scientific-sounding term for Judenhass (Jew-hatred).

How did antisemitic became; “anti-Jew” when it encompasses so many different types of people? And how is it possible anyone who questions Zionist media and school trained propaganda is instantly anti-Semitic?

Is it anti-black to look to see if blacks owned slaves? Is it anti 1st nations to look and see if we natives did commit genocide against other natives before colonization? Is it anti peace to look into Mandela’s past to see what he supported or if he did in fact co-opt the African movement for a more peaceful corporate state ownership? Is it anti women to study the history of corporate sold feminism?

Of course it is according to those who wish to believe all $tate mandated propaganda!!!!!

~ If your gonna label me anti anything, please use the term Anti-Zionist because, yes, I am against pedophilia, eugenics, genocide, war, corporations linked to the chemical industry, propaganda media and propaganda education promoting assimilated capitalist ecocide created entirely by a Rothschild banking system.

4-4-17 ~ Matthew Borke… Oceti/Standing Rock/Sakima Camp update: Although our homes have been bull dozed and physical bodies have been abused. We can never leave camp now. For our spirits must rise up. We have been scattered across the country creating refreshed homes and raising awareness. Of all that has been destroyed, our hearts grow stronger. We are still Standing. A movement must change its tires to gain more traction yet driving on the ice gives one skills. Water Protectors are in your back yards now. There are new camps going up all the time. They could still use support. We are still praying on several fronts. Court houses, Toxic waste dumps, State capitals, Drill pads, and on and on. Every camp is built with a kitchen. And every kitchen needs supplies and medicines. It is a hearth that warms and nourishes the spirit and fuels the drive. Please continue to collect supplies. Tarp, ladles, pots and pans, cutting boards, large tents, seasonings, and mess can kits. Cots, sleeping bags, pillows, batteries, headlamps. The more reusable, the better. Solar panels, wind turbines, car batteries, and inverters. Please continue to do events, invite a water protector to speak. Show alternative ways of living. I am presently in Michigan. Sioux Z Dezbah is in California. Joye Braun is in South Dakota.

We will direct your support in the best way we can.
We are all people of the land and with out you, we are nothing.

“THE GOOD RED ROAD”
The phrase – “The Good Red Road” is a term used by many different Native American tribal communities to represent one who is walking the road of balance, living right and following the rules of the Creator.
The Good Red Roads – Code of Ethics

1. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
2. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.
3. Do not take what is not yours. Whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours. You cannot enjoy what it not yours.
4. Respect all things that are placed upon this Earth.
5. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if only you speak.
6. Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or mimic them. Allow each person the right to a freedom of opinion. Respect that opinion.
7. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.
8. All persons make mistakes. No matter how small or how large the mistake is, it can still be forgiven.
9. Bad thoughts cause illness of the spirit, the mind and the body. Keep bad thoughts at bay. Practice optimism.
10. Nature is not FOR us; it is a PART of us. Treat all natural beings as a member of your family.
11. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, allow them find their own place.
12. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual Self, Emotional Self and Physical self all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body, to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.
13. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.
14. Treat the elders as special gems – their wisdom will shine.
15. Be true to yourself first.

“Peace…comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the enviers dwells Waken-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us”
Black Elk, Oglala Sioux


3-29-17 ~ Jeane LaRance‎ … It’s been over three months now since I left Oceti Sakowin and I’m calming down a bit more. I don’t cry as much and I’m sleeping without nightmares, I still jump when a helicopter flies over but I’m getting used to it. After the first month I couldn’t go on the way I was, I kept hearing elders saying the fire is lit inside all Water Protectors. so I became very active in my community and it is amazing how much better I am. I will never be the same woman I was and that’s good, I am active. I am here to Protect. I am proud to be Native.

Clarence Wolf Guts was not the sort of hero who capitalized on his exploits; he never wrote any books or ran for office, and you could count his speaking appearances on one hand. When we met him in 2007, he was living almost as simply as he did when he was a boy on the Rosebud Reservation in the 1920s.

3-22-17 ~ Becky Allmon‎… I feel honored and privileged to have served the Water Protectors at Standing Rock in providing medical care and am willing to work with any further Camps to serve the medical needs, just let me know when and where. To serve with you was a life changing experience that has altered my life. Mni Wiconi!


3-19-17 ~ Vanessa Castle ….feeling nostalgic…The days were warm and sunny, and the nights were cold. We rode horse up to the top of the ridge to watch the sunset upon Oceti and Rosebud. There they sang, after hearing hoots and hollers and “MNI WICONI!” from every direction. We offered prayers. It was a beautiful time.

Native Eagle Feather Teachings By Adrian LaChance

“You have wandered away from your teachings. You must concentrate on your spiritual teachings…Don’t be sidetracked.”
— Henry Quick Bear, LAKOTA

Why are the Elders always telling us to know The culture and listen to the teachings? When we go off track, why do the Elders say, return to the teachings? The teachings tell us how to live in harmony with the Laws and principles of the Great Spirit. Living means life – a good life, a happy life. Many of us have grown up without the teachings and the culture, that is why we don’t know how to live. To improve on relationships, to treat our children with honor, and to respect our Elders, we need to live by the old teachings again.

Great Spirit, today, show me how to live.


3-18-17 ~ Jeff Andreasen Kelly-Sky… OK. Water protectors especially: pay attention my loved ones. So, today after finally getting to the point of HAVING to do something, I went out and spoke to my ancestors, all the living spirits, all the spirits that never were physical. I cried. I yelled. I told them I’m ready to leave my purpose because I feel so lost. I couldn’t feel anything but pain, or numbness. All enjoyment or hope was gone from my existence. I felt defeated like I’ve never felt. I told them this as I held my tobacco and cried. I told them I couldn’t do it this way anymore and to forgive me.

All of a sudden I heard footsteps and breaking branches from a few different places, and I was thinking what are these people doing out here? I hadn’t seen any tracks besides animal out there. I actually thought someone had misinterpreted my facebook posts and sent out a group to make to make sure I was safe. How embarrassing, I thought. I started packing up my bundle to get out of there, I was trying to listen to see who it might be, and a soft breeze blew. All the crusty snow in the branches was clinking together sounding like tiny jingle dresses. That’s when I felt it. FELT IT. I was surrounded by loving beings and they hadn’t gone anywhere.

It was my pain and fear of pain that closed me off from being able to feel and hear them. I had even forgotten that I COULD hear and feel them. I was so lost.

We need to take our pain and feelings of defeat and give it to the ones that never left our sides. It’s the idea of being defeated that cut us away from them. It’s the feeling of lack of purpose that is driving us to depths we haven’t found before.

Use your tobacco to absorb those feelings even if you can’t believe in it at the moment, and ask them to help, ask them to show you your purpose again.

It is the only way. I tried to wait, thinking I’ll come out of it.

Just get on with your prayer. The one from the deepest part of you. Don’t be ashamed because you lost your connection. Its understandable. If not to anyone else, it is to me. We had a huge thing traumatize us repeatedly in the worst kind of ways.

I will be the first spirit to say I love you, no matter what. Unconditionally, I love you. Now get your tobacco so you can feel that message from everywhere else.

Do it. They’re waiting.

3-18-17 ~ Linda Gaddie-Garcia Standing Rock Protectors – Pipeline Protest… E-Eric Poemz Protector News had to name change to Eric Poemoceah Protector News!….. due to troll activity! So hence forth he’ll be sharing E-Eric Poemoceah Protector News from now on! Eric has been having endless troll problems especially since he had his pelvis broken by BIA Police at Oceti Oyate Camp on Feb. 22, 2017!

These trolls have also been trying to get Eric’s Go Fund Me Page’s reported as fraud to fb! Eric is legitimate and so is his Go Fund Me page! I post his Go Fund Me Page once, or twice a week (in my groups) because Eric needs money to pay for medical expenses. But also because he used his own money traveling around to different protests to live stream! He live streamed as well from CNN until CNN finally did media coverage of what happened at Standing Rock on November 20, 2016! Eric also live streamed at the Super Bowl in Jan. 2017! All to raise awareness, when mainstream media wasn’t reporting on important issues! Eric is willing to travel to where ever he is needed to live stream and raise awareness of protests!

In the U.S. and Canada! He just needs gas money to get to the protests!

Eric Poemz … “Trolls Reported my Name on my Account and FB tried to take down my Account so I had to correct my name. I’ve never had problems using Eric Poemz b4 but all the sudden trolls started reporting me to FB!!”


Will You Stand With The Indigenous People Against The Dakota Pipeline? (w/Guest: Dave Archambault) – Thom Hartmann Program

3-16-17 ~ Kenny Frost…. In DAPL Dave’s own words.
DAPL Dave invite people to camp on standing rock as guests. Asking for donations.

Standing rock tribal council claim that the campers have no permit. Yet were invited to camp Treaty land inviting people from around the world to camp in the first place?

You invite people to come camp there, they are your guest. Then on Dec 5th telling all people to get the hell out!

Later sending an eviction notice and trespassing notice to people you begged to come camp there and then removing people at gun point will make a lot of pissed off campers. People are insulted and hurt.

On Dec. 4th you made the deal with the devil of selling out to ND governor, DAPL, Morton County sheriff, ACOE.

It was also the standing rock tribal council who made a resolution to LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard supporting Sacred Stone Camp. Then at the end telling her she has no right on her allotted land. Then bulldozing a school. It’s a school! Why bulldozed a school intended for children’s.

DAPL spoke with the words of a fork-tongue. He lied to the people. He lied to the water protectors. He lied to his own ancestral spirits.

The ancestors will be going after him for turning his back against the ancestor’s burials.

Daniella Zalcman‘s Pulitzer-Center funded project… Signs of Your Identity, reveals the damage of the residential school system on indigenous communities. Many of her subjects and their relatives travelled to Standing Rock to stand in solidarity with the Sioux Reservation.

“Standing Rock was about a return to sovereignty. The Treaty of Fort Laramie has been explicitly violated in so many different ways and this is an act of reclamation, of the Lakota saying: “We’re done with coercive assimilation. We’re done with land grabbing. And we also don’t want the water supply poisoned for the eighteen million people who live downstream.” They see themselves as stewards of the land for the next seven generations.

“A lot of the Lakota prophecies have to do with the land and the mythology of the Black Snake. The youth were a major part of bringing about this prophecy and reclaiming

3-11-17 ~ Luba Williams… Thank you to everybody who has done what their hearts have compelled them to do. Thank you to those who did what your greed told you to do. Thank you to those who did what their fears told them to do. Thank you to those who did what their anger told them to do, what their needs told them to do and what their jealousy told them to do.

Because of all of you the world knows about Standing Rock and more people have a voice, more people are aware of corruption, greed and dishonesty. To face the ones destroying our earthly home and creatures of land air and sky.

So, who is the honest who is the greedy who is the corrupt who is the fraud who is the angry ? I don’t care. That’s all on them the good the bad and the ugly. Yet it doesn’t take much to see who true good responsible supportive and trustworthy leaders and warriors are. And who are not. Opportunists knock on every cause just in the nick of time. Some how they walk away unscathed overall. While the hearts of pure pick up the others who are broken.

I’m proud either way of all the good I have seen. My love and respect far outweighs any negative feelings or intentions by the insider corruption and the external evils. They are of the same battle and fight, are they not. And so they oppose the good, and that is their battle in the long run. Standing Rock has defied what ‘they’ had expected and I am damn sure it will continue to. The WORLD has grown a huge set of balls because of all the brave people who had risked their lives at Standing Rock. And I love you all each of you for that. Thank you for the teachings you have bestowed upon me and for so many of your dear friendships. Thank you for the witness of your pure strength, compassion and determination. Your examples of goodness and tradition have shook some of the hell out of this world. You have given people a reason to get up each day and breathe again. You inspired people to do something take action stand up and face the injustices within their own lives and communities.

We have laughed with you, cried with you and stood with you.
YOU ARE WHO MATTER TO ME
and you know who you are
May the creator bless you and protect you always. To those suffering in any way my heart and prayers are with you. I love you all.

3-8-17 ~ Lakota People’s Law Project… Finally, a voice of reason published in The Bismarck Tribune! In it’s final days, Oceti Sakowin was no where near an ecological disaster. The rumors of human waste flowing into the river are false, and the debris left from thousands of campers don’t have any long term implications for the land or water.

3-16-17 ~ Angie Spencer …
My trial at Morton County Court House about being arrested at Standing Rock is now scheduled for September 7th 2017. I was arrested October 27th 2016 and they wrote “trespass” on my arm but the paperwork I just received reads, “Offense: Endangering By Fire Or Explosion; Maintaining A Public Nuisance; Engaging In A Riot/Mob” for a misdemeanor jury trial. It was originally a felony charge, I have an attorney and have put over $4,500 into defense now.

The first appearance in court was originally scheduled for December 5th 2016 which was cancelled and rescheduled for February 14th 2017, which was cancelled again in late January 2017.
Morton County is accusing people of anything they want and throwing around false allegations as a form of suppression, tying people up in the legal system costing thousands to water protectors and systematically criminalizing them. I am just one of 700+.


3-15-17 ~ Matthew Borke… I was arrested on Feb. 23rd at Oceti. As they said in the article. They removed a lot of snow and wood. They also removed several people’s homes. I am happy to hear they may have taken propane tanks to recycling. No one was allowed to stay to witness. As far as the 3 weeks previous, I saw no recycling from the bulldozing crew. What I did see was if you happen to be looking the other way, your home may have been demolished. No checking if anyone was home. No checking what they were bulldozing. I also had a my dog with me. I was lucky. She ran with the ATV they picked me up in. And when it stopped and the door opened, she jumped in. She was the only animal I saw that got approval to come with us. I had never imagined they would abandon all the animals. As officers told me. That was there plan all along. So you arrest all the inhabitants and leave the animals. And let no one to return. The officers abandoned those dogs. This is the truth. The officer actually told me that I was killing him when my pooch was running with the vehicle. I said “excuse me? You’re not actually planning on abandoning my dog here.” He said “yes.”

3-11-17 ~ Indiana reveals the arsenal they brought with them to Standing Rock
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has provided us with a remarkably unredacted look at their EMAC (Emergency Management Assistance Compact) agreement with North Dakota. 37 sworn law enforcement officers from nine different Indiana agencies including Indianapolis Metropolitan PD, were deployed to Morton County. Their mission lasted for 18 days and went through late October to early November.

42 “sidearms” (judging from the individual officer’s paperwork, these are various Glock models): $16,464
37 (one for each officer!) Bushmaster AR-15’s: $14,504
16 outfits of riot gear: $9,408
23 shotguns: $9,016
21 pairs of Gen III night vision goggles: $8,232
37 seemingly department issued cell phones: $6,160
21 pairs of binoculars: $1,029
10 spotting scopes (possibly used as part of a sniper team): $490
2 tear gas launchers of different sizes: $784
1 TAC 700 pepper ball launcher: $392
1 thermal imaging camera: $784

In addition to all this gear, Indiana law enforcement agencies brought seven ATV’s (two models), 23 pickup trucks which cost North Dakota $117,208 (three models), five Ford SUV’s and two Dodge Chargers. This convoy cost North Dakota $149,000, and that isn’t including actual fueling costs.

She is an activist and water protector who dedicated her time to Oceti Sakowin Camp near Standing Rock reservation, our water is being threatened by the Dakota Access Pipeline that will go under Lake Oahe which is where the Missouri River flows.

During the camp evacuations and police and National Guard raids people were hurrying to get to safety from these mad men, she ran down after last minute items when the structure she went into exploded and burned her.

She was pulled to safety then rushed to the hospital and from there she was life flighted out to a Burn center.

She has some serious burns and will have a long road to recovery but her spirits are back up and she still has the fighting spirit to fight for Mother earth, she would like to travel around the state’s to stand up against pollution happening.

She thanks everyone for their support and continued prayers at this time, we are asking for your generous contributions to her road to recovery and medical bills.

3-8-17 ~ Jackie Kaitautoko … Come on America, Water is Life.. Look at your children and think of the future they will have if you do nothing.. Take the time to defend your rights to fresh clean water.. It’s time for everyone to make a stand, First Nation have done everything they could to fight DAPL, and now’s the time for every American Citizen to make a STAND..


3-8-17 ~ LAKOTA CODE OF ETHICS

1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.

2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy – and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.

3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.

5. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.

6. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant.

7. Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

8. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.

9. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven.

10. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

11. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.

12. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.

13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

14. Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.

15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.

16. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

3-8-17 ~ Elder’s Meditation of the Day – March 8
“Balance is implicit in the Red Road. When you’re on the Red Road, you are in the center. Yet, you do not go to either extreme, and you allow both sides to exist. This is accomplished by continually postponing surrendering to temptation, whatever it may be. It is saying ‘later’ instead of ‘no.'”
— Dr. A.C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA

The Sacred Path of life has a middle, a left side, and a right side. As human beings, we are designed to walk this middle path as much as we can. As we walk, we will stray to the left and to the right and come back to the middle. Straying to the left or right side is as sacred as being in the middle. Sometimes we call this straying our mistakes. We are designed by the Creator to walk the Sacred Path of life, and realize that our mistakes are the source of lessons. These lessons give us our wisdom. It is not wrong that we are tempted. What matters is what we do with the temptation.

Great Spirit, today, let me enjoy the Sacred Path of Life

3-7-17 ~ Jamarkis Athabaskan… On the morning of January 19, 2017, the day before Trump’s inauguration, I was shot in my left eye by police at the Backwater Bridge on Highway 1806 just north of the Oceti Oyate Camp outside of Cannonball, ND. The impact from a “non-lethal bean bag round” shattered my cheek bone and orbital wall next to my eye, resulting in loss of my vision, hearing, sense of smell, taste, and touch on the left side of my face. The police officer that shot me was aiming directly at me with the intention to cause serious harm. This video was taken on January 21, after I was found in the hospital in Bismark, ND. My location or news of my injury was not released by the Morton County Sheriff’s Office or the hospital “due to security reasons,” – I believe that the police and hospital were intentionally trying to hide my injury from the public. At the hospital I was handcuffed to the bed after surgery to remove metal pellets from my eye, denied calls to my family, denied water, and kept under armed guard. After my relatives found me, I was immediately released from custody and allowed visitors. The day I was discharged from the hospital, Morton County issued a warrant for my arrest. Under legal advisement, I chose not release this video due to my warrant until I received necessary medical care and my health recovered. As my relatives and Indigenous People from across Turtle Island are traveling to march on Washington D.C., I believe that now is the time to share my story because we must not be afraid and we must share the truth about what this country is doing to Indigenous People and our precious mother water for the existence of next 7 generations. Our struggle is not over, it is just beginning. #WaterisLife #NoDAPL


3-7-17 ~ Larry Eagleheart Broome… The Chicken and the Eagle
There was once a poor farmer who only had a few crops and a chicken coop. One thing he especially loved was the great eagles that lived in a tall tree on his farm. He loved to watch them soar. The female eagle was sitting on eggs and the farmer was very excited.

One day a foolish young man crossed his property line with a gun. He saw the female eagle as she left the nest to exercise her wings for just a minute. He shot and killed her. The farmer was enraged. Although he tried, he could not catch the man. Saddened, he returned to his farm. He thought and thought, “What should I do”?

Finally an idea came. He got a ladder out of the barn and climbed the tree where the eagle nest was. He took two eggs from the nest, immediately brought them to the chicken coup and placed the eggs under a sitting hen…

Time went by and the chicks began to hatch. One of the eagle eggs did not hatch but one did. When the eaglet looked around he saw the mother hen and thought MAMA. He followed the hen and chicks and thought “I am a chicken”…but something inside told him, “I need to be up higher, up there in the sky. But no, I am a chicken…” This went on for a long time until he was grown. He kept thinking, “I need to be up higher, up there in the sky, but no, I am a chicken”.

One day for no reason he decided to hop up on a corral fence. Thinking all the time “I need to be up higher”. He felt the need to spread his wings as far as he could. While he was spreading his wings, a strong wind blew hard and all of a sudden he began to rise; higher and higher until he was soaring high in the sky. From there he could look down on his circumstances as they really were. He thought, “I am not a chicken at all!! I am an eagle and I have eagle eyes for I can see things as they really are”.

The question is: Are you a chicken or an eagle?

But someone may say, “If I am an eagle how do I get where I belong?”

The answer is….

Hold your wings out and wait for the Creator to send His Spirit to blow you where you are supposed to be.

3-5-17 ~ Barbara Anne Kirkman… “You all talk as if this is the past, well then I suggest you go to ND and take a good look at what has happened at Standing Rock..the 75p0+ people arrested on bogus charges…the 1,000 forced to leave, leaving behind their possessions, many have had their cars confiscated because they were not allowed to take them since the road in and out was under a blockade at both ends…people who cannot leave the sate until they are tried in court..have no place to go, many left with just what was on their backs….and then there was all of the chemicals used on them, or sprayed over the camps at night, and yes, there is proof of this. Many are still ill…many also now have glass lung disease….many gave up everything they had to stand to protect the waters there in Lake Oahe and the Missouri River…More than a thousand made it thru 3 blizzards…well over 600 injured by rubber bullets, bean bags pepper pops, the police aiming for their heads, chest and groin areas…they loved shooting the men in the knees…and the police shot and killed a horse and badly damaged others…the police would come into the camps at night and to snatch and grabs..Planes and helicopters flying over head 24/7..Stadium lights set up to shine directly on the main camp…so much that people do not know about what happened at Standing Rock…and remember this is the second decade of the 21st Century.”


3-5-17 ~ AJ+… Every morning, students in Toronto pay respect to indigenous land and people before singing “O Canada.”


3-5-17 ~ Wasté Win Young… TOMORROW, I’m going to get the papers to file a petition for the removal of our tribal council officials.

The reason why is because they dishonored us and shamed us under the guise of protecting us–disrespecting thousands of allies– especially the Očeti Šakowin who have a treaty right to be here. Also for the theft, misuse/ misappropriation of money and donations that were meant for water protectors. I will swear before a judge (and anyone) what was told to me in August 2016–about getting people to donate to the tribe instead of Sacred Stone.

I know this will bring me more enemies and create hard feelings but how do you think the grass roots people feel? The council allowed a foreign military, BIA, and the ND state patrol to step onto sovereign lands and systematically, physically remove homes and people. This action not only displaced hundreds of people (non-native, indigenous and tribal citizens) but directly caused economic hardship and inflicted great emotional duress & trauma.

(I would also be game to file paperwork to initiate a lawsuit against the state of ND for closing 1806 and police abuse).

I can’t apologize anymore. I still carry those values of respect,–waunsila, wolakota, with me. But I’ve got to do this. It’s time we stood up to our government.

If anyone would like to help or gather signatures in your district let me know.

Lead Horse Choctaw (a man I saw in person speak at Oceti Sakowin camp and saw days before his disappearance) was arrested at Ceremonial Grounds during the raid on the Seventh Generation Camp when the camp was attacked by police. 7th generation camp (also known as black hoop camp) was next to Sacred Stone Camp. Lead Horse was manning the Sacred Fire when he was pepper sprayed and handcuffed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs police.

Lead Horse was then kidnapped by BIA police and taken to the Fort Yates Jail. He is on a hunger strike and told the court he will die there for the cause.

Lead Horse asked for the names of the police when they arrived in camp on March 1, 2017. BIA said earlier that they were only coming into the camps to assess the situation. Lead Horse said in court that he was a Ceremony Keeper, and a peaceful man, and was in a closing Ceremony when the BIA trucks came in to the Ceremony Grounds.

3 people were arrested. They pepper sprayed him and handcuffed him. People had to walk all the way to the Prairie Knights Casino after which is more than 11 miles away.

Seventh Generation, which is Black Hoop Camp, was raided by police on the same day as the original camp, Sacred Stone Camp.

Oceti Sakowin, the large camp, and Sacred Stone Camp were raided and water protectors evicted.
Now evicted and displaced, water protectors are still being welcomed by Harold Frazier of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe camp to continue the defense of the water. Cheyenne River Sioux have continued to open up their Powwow Grounds in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. #freeleadhorse#leadhorsechoctaw #standingrock #nodapl



3-4-17 ~ Digital Smoke Signals… Newly remodeled Pit Stop Gas station owned by Dave Archambault starts 2 days after Sacred Stones trespassing notice, delivered by BIA on request of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Seems like an inappropriate time to do remodeling of GAS Station. While WATER PROTECTORS” Personal belongings are under-siege at Sacred Stones Camp and cannot be retrieved.

Gas station cannot be missed, as it is on the only road out of Sacred Stone camp.
We are documenting on both sides of the pipeline…

COMMENTS:

Tiki Blu ~ This makes my skin itch and my bowels churn!! This is a very ugly “In-Your-Face!” accompanied by a middle finger flip off to all nodapl media, water protectors, land defenders & supporters. With a heavy heart, I am very ashamed of the actions of the chairman of the Standing Rock Tribe. This remodeling of the Pit Stop at this terribly crucial time defines who he really is …..and it is not pretty!!
Debbie Edge ~ Corruption n greed
Mary Najdzion-Gagnon ~ WTF????????????????? WOW…this man has balls!!!! To do this at this time?????? WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Virginia Cappello ~ Do not let history repeat itself..this should never had happen. Reminds me of the 1860s…follow AIM and stand together
Tammy Beau Bordeaux ~ And he said they lost money because of the road block. Looks like we know where all the money they kept went to.


3-4-17 ~ LomaStar Cleveland … Once AGAIN…my sister was suddenly moved from Bismarck to Rugby, ND.
The state of ND insists on moving her abruptly for no apparent reason. We will continue to support her regardless of where she’s at…here is the newest mailing address for our sister…

Red Fawn Fallis
HACTC
110 Industrial Rd
Rugby, ND 58368

There is no message line and she does not have access to the phone like she previously did, so letters or cards are the only form of support as of right now. As always thank U all for the continued support…


3-4-17 ~ Angie Spencer… Apparently Prairie Knights Casino is into #FalseAllegations and #TacticalSuppression as well. Unbelievable that the tribe’s casino would treat Water Protectors so poorly, yet invite the BIA tribal police, armed U.S. Park Rangers, and undercover Federal Agents who are clearing out the camps, into the hotel with open arms. This letter is so bogus, its beyond suspect. Just to be clear, there was never any “incident” it is part of how they are systematically cutting people off from access to resources to encourage people to flee the area. This can be seen in the closing of HWY 1806 and now with the multiple barricades in place in and around the reservation, this is just another form of tactical suppression and blocking of resources which is a tactic within attempts at social control but this time it is within the tribe’s casino itself – which is telling. I was never spoken to about this or asked to leave because no “incident” actually happened. This letter was mailed to my home in Seattle, I just now received it upon arrival home. The reality is, hundreds of Water Protectors and Indigenous people from around the world have been banned from the Prairie Knights Casino now in an effort to make sure they never come back. #StandingRock


3-3-17 ~ Alisha Ali Vincent
LISTEN UP WATER WARRIORS:
I am not one to put faith in rumors. But let us remember that it was Standing Rock Tribal Council who voted to remove all of the camps, including Sacred Stone. I have shared with you that documentation from every step of the process. This was not just a move taken to please the residents of Cannonball. Part of the decision-making process DID include personal vendettas, long-standing family disputes, and petty jealousies.

The current RUMOR is that Sacred Stone will be razed by bulldozer in the coming days. I have zero evidence that this is true. On the other hand, why would we possibly sit around and wait until we receive official confirmation courtesy of someone watching the bulldozers driving down the street?

So… here is my personal plan of action and I hope you will JOIN ME…
Call Chairman Dave Archambault TODAY… 701.854.8500
POLITELY REMIND THEIR OFFICE…
– we came when you asked
– our majority came in a good way
– standing rock youth need hope & help
– DO NOT DESTROY Sacred Stone school
It DOESN’T MATTER if this is rumor or truth. What matters is that we act now and use our voice on this Friday… to step up and speak out as a moral obligation to the Indigenous Youth in Standing Rock that deserve to have these remaining structures benefit THEM. If it is even the slightest of possibilities that bulldozers will disrespect the future use possibilities of these structures… Then we should be acting NOW.
Forward and share please!
This is an action for TODAY, not tomorrow.

Orgenetic Healing

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe
HIGHLIGHTED LINKS UNDERLINED IN BLUE ARE EMBEDDED LINKS TO NEWS SOURCES. CLICKING OPENS THE FULL ARTICLE IN A NEW TAB.

Healing: (per Google Dictionary)
Noun: the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again.
“the gift of healing”

Adjective: tending to heal; therapeutic.
“a healing experience”
Healing: (per Dr. Julie)

A total experience encompassing all aspects of our being: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual such that we are brought into greater and greater alignment with our Creator so that best expression of the unlimited nature of love and life can be fully expressed in every part of our lives, such that we can participate in our families, communities and world with compassion and strength.

I, like most trained in medicine have vacillated through the years between believing in this kind of total restoration and shying back to the “safety” of solid medical science. Perhaps I could more precisely say: I have looked for demonstration of the totality of healing within the realm of the physical first and all other aspects of self, second.

However, in my own healing journey and in the process of supporting and coaching others on theirs, I have learned we cannot confine ourselves to observations of physical change as our moniker of how successful a healing process is. It limits, leaving us to feel abandoned and let down when physical things don’t shift or change, and can blind us to bigger healings happening all the time. I think, nowhere in my professional experience has this been more poignantly demonstrated than in DNA Activations, as I have for much of this time, relegated proclamations of change with large regard to the physical and much smaller regard to everything else.

But this was a mistake, or rather an oversight, largely enacted because it is nearly impossible to quantify non-physical healing aka Spiritual Healing. Every time we venture there, people get shy about their proclamations, stating them demurely, or with a disclaimer that it could all be coincidence or maybe even just a natural unfolding because of all other healing modalities they have endeavored on in their life. The thing is, in most of our cases, we have indeed been working towards this our entire lives, all the work we did certainly does play a part and all the effort we put in is paying off because for the first time, the core language speaking at our root is not muffled, hindered or altered by the “rust” of everything we have unwittingly carried forward.

I am as guilty of this as anyone, in the past, when I have been asked what has changed, I searched my mind for the physical unfoldment I experienced: reduction in pain, or disappearance of a particular pattern. I have never said what is really the truest and most life altering: my marriage is better than ever because we both have been able to drop the interlopers which sometimes spoke for us, my relationships with my children are stronger, no longer bound by perceived, learned or societally demonstrated roles and thus are honest, compassionate and truthful in ways I could have never imagined, my truth with myself is no longer hindered by guilt, or shame or self-objectification. I feel heard, and loved, and guided and supported from the inside out, and I feel proud to be me.

What is true is this type of healing gives me unfettered access to participate with myself in means and ways to heal anything else I need to heal. It gives me ways to move and eat, to supplement and nourish without basing those decisions on fear, guilt, pain, or worry. Which means that my physical restoration is unfolding in certainty now that it can be guided by the language of my Creator speaking from within rather than the language of fear, societal impression and social pressure coming from outside.

I couldn’t have understood this when I started venturing into DNA Activations, I couldn’t have even understood this during my first, or second, or third or even my fourth activation, because I was still unfolding, still removing the “rust”, I am now, almost 9 months out from the final day of my fourth activation, and my perspective continues to grow, as does my Healing, as does my Health. One truth remains strong and serves as my guiding force: It is all Spiritual, and to want it to be anything but is to diminish the potential of what is possible. In truth, I am walking out the path that my Creator has lovingly placed me on, as are you, as are we all, and there is no template for what that looks like, our only objective is to keep being willing to honor and live our truth, beauty and compassionate action as best we can, every day and this will bring I believe, restoration beyond imagining.

Now That I’ve Got Your Attention

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe

So this morning I find a message from someone on my private Facebook Messages… I get those pretty frequently from unknown somebody’s, mostly trolls looking to hook up with some of my followers to start the all too frequent troll baiting exercise they’re so fond of; however this woman, Dharmika Judy Henshel approached me differently, her message grabbed my attention along with an invitation to her website and would I consider linking our sites to share knowledge. Clicking the link provided I realized she was similarly like-minded in her search for truth in media.

What I discovered while perusing the 7 menu and assorted sub-menu tabs were interviews, videos, photos, and articles supporting Indigenous 1st Nations at the various Standing Rock Camps; a comprehensive account of events and research data separately categorized into pages consisting of various subject matter, including but not limited to 1st Nation Treaty Rights vs. Big Oil, the history of predatory illegal land grabbing i.e. Eminent Domain; legal and medical litigation, environmental, and cultural information, policing without due process and freedom to peacefully assemble.

You’ll find a compilation of information not contained on Let Our Voices Echo so I’d like to invite everyone to utilize both websites when hunting for that lost article, photo or video, editorial content, educational research material or your everyday PhD thesis!

Broken Treaties Stolen Land

Kristeen Hernandez aka Lady2Soothe
HIGHLIGHTED LINKS UNDERLINED IN BLUE ARE EMBEDDED LINKS TO NEWS SOURCES. CLICKING OPENS THE FULL ARTICLE IN A NEW TAB.

An informed opinion demands familiarity with both sides of an issue. Let’s start from the beginning; this was land belonging to Indigenous from time immemorial; Native lands and Reservations are not synonymous. In 1851 land was guaranteed to the Sioux Nation. Keep in mind not all that land is part of the Reservation, but IT IS Native Land. Guess where the pipeline is? It’s in the lands that were guaranteed, but not part of the Reservation. So DAPL’s claim the pipeline doesn’t run through the reservation is true, but it has nothing to do with the whole truth, in other words DAPL is lying by omission. When you actually take the time to read the 1851 Treaty, you’ll realize the treaty has been ignored and violated over and over again. Pro-DAPL wants law and order right? The treaty IS the law. The treaty was never rescinded; it’s Native land, PERIOD. So when they’re talking about the property rights of the pipeline, DAPL doesn’t have any, can’t argue that, they’ve got to respect the law, the property rights, the treaty. Energy Transfer Partners NEVER got permission from the tribe, they have NO PROPERTY RIGHTS; it’s that simple.

First, the 1851 treaty the tribe is fighting to keep. The pipeline crosses that land….. Two, the 90 feet underwater crossing is under the water supply for the tribe no matter where the intake is. The new intake is downstream. Given a leak under water, and the oil floats to the surface entrapping itself through the column of water. It could be days or weeks before anyone even notices, which means a great deal of pollution such as we witnessed in the Gulf of Mexico takes place before anything can be done. Especially since the oil in the pipe will first saturate the soil and later the water column. Lots of oil in that pipe with no way really to recover it until it all surfaces….. Third, and is sorely missing from the multitude of words, is the wildlife endangered. The Natives do consider the wildlife, and it would be nice if the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service did too. But then the FWS have pretty much sold out to extractive industries and stood by silently as fish and wildlife in the US continues to be decimated…… So anyone disputing these facts including DAPL needs to go back to the drawing board, because no one in their right mind trusts the government to protect the waters.

Signed on April 29, 1868 at Fort Laramie in the Wyoming Territory, guaranteeing the Lakota ownership of the Black Hills, and further land and hunting rights in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana. The Powder River Country was to be henceforth closed to all whites.

Public Law 85-915 85-916 and 85-923 September 2, 1958 | [H. R. 12662] 72 Stat. 1762
http://digital.library.okstate.edu/kappler/vol6/html_files/v6p0861.html
passed by the U.S. Congress, compensating the Standing Rock Sioux for tribal land flooded ten years prior to form Lake Oahe. Rights to all minerals below the lake were reserved for the tribe. Because of this, no corporate or government entity has a right to dig beneath the lake without permission of the tribe and is breaking the law in attempting it.

Public Law 85-915 An Act to provide for the acquisition of lands by the United States required for the reservoir created by the construction of Oahe Dam on the Missouri River and for rehabilitation of the Indians of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and North Dakota, and for other purposes.

Public Law 85-916 An Act to provide for additional payments to the Indians of the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation, South Dakota, whose lands have been acquired for the Fort Randall Dam and Reservoir project, and for other purposes. Public Law 85-923 An Act to provide for additional payments to the Indians of the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation, South Dakota, whose lands have been acquired for the Fort Randall Dam and Reservoir project, and for other purposes.

The drilling pad is on unceded territory (land never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way) of the Sioux Nation. The federal government acknowledged this as well as admitting the Sioux Nation never took the $108 million offered in 1944, which the fed’s put in a trust fund which has accrued interest and is now worth $1.3 billion. The Sioux are still saying “No thanks, we don’t want your money we want our land.” There is also additional land the government ceased from 1948 to 1953 for the construction of the Oahe Dam. In 1999 and 2000 congressional studies recommended the land be given back to the Sioux. The Dept. of Energy can return the land at any time and empty the trust fund for a sizable investment profit.

Now don’t try and argue the tribe ignored the meetings because all of the so called missed meetings were not missed. It was just reported as so. Nations would show up (all that is required) and be ignored and tromped over in favor of the pipeline. Multiple closed meetings. The 2007 Resolution by Standing Rock, which prohibited any pipeline in the treaty area, and not only that, scheduled meetings were moved without mention or notice, how we were told we couldn’t speak when bringing attention to various agenda’s yet not allowed to.

2014 Recorded meeting specifically stated by Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II that while the pipeline crosses less than a mile north of the reservation boundary, the tribe recognizes its treaty boundaries and passed a resolution in 2012 opposing pipelines within the those boundaries. http://bismarcktribune.com/news/state-and-regional/audio-tribe-objected-to-pipeline-nearly-years-before-lawsuit/article_51f94b8b-1284-5da9-92ec- 7638347fe066.html Even though The Bismarck Tribune has scrubbed the article, they are as complicit as Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier and Governor Jack Dalrmple. However “Meet the Youth; at the Heart of the Standing Rock Protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline – Internet USA News Today”

had the recording, you would have found it at approximately the 13 minute mark, however, this video too has now been scrubbed. Dave Archambault was very specific in the tribes stance against the pipeline.

The 1st, 2nd, 4th and 14th Amendments Rights have been infringed upon, ignored and violated and Bivens Actions, which the Supreme Court holds as a violation of one’s Fourth Amendment rights by federal officers are giving rise to a federal cause of action for damages for unlawful searches and seizures. Additionally Congress enacted 42 U.S.C. § 1983 in order to protect the rights guaranteed to all Americans by the 14th Amendment. Under Section 1983, a victim can file a lawsuit in federal court for police brutality.

Are those Amendments and rules of now void? As a US citizen, do YOU still have those constitutional rights? I’m sure you’d agree you’re concerned with your own rights being infringed upon, ignored and violated, right? So why are you willing to throw Indigenous rights away? How long do you think it will take before another group will come along and throw YOUR rights away? By ignoring the rights of other’s you’re giving silent consent to having your own rights violated. You do realize you’re actually advocating to abolish all the constitutional right afforded every US Citizen, including yourself, but you’re okay with that, right? You see you’re playing your part in the time honored tradition of getting rid of the people you find less than. Next year when you hear people complain about what happened at Standing Rock, don’t claim you “didn’t have anything to do with it, you’re tired of being blamed for your ancestors transgressions”, because your complicity and silence, ignoring the whole historical evidence-based argument is as much your fault as it is of your forefathers.

1852
3 weeks of negotiating homelands, areas and how to conduct relations with the Federal Government. In 1852 the end the treaty was ratified by the US Senate by recognizing 12 tribes of the owners of a little over 1.1 million sq. miles of the west enveloping twelve western states and corral the future cities of Denver and Fort Collins, Kansas City, Billings, Cheyenne and Sheridan, Cody and Bismarck, Salt Lake City, Omaha and Lincoln, Sioux Falls and Des Moines, within one vast territory that was owned, as it had been since time immemorial, by Indian nations.

The treaty defines Sioux territory as across the Missouri River from the west bank to the east bank including the low water mark down the east bank. This treaty has been in effect for over 164 years.

On September 17, twenty-one chiefs representing the Sioux, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Crow, Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara and Assiniboine signed the Horse Creek Treaty. Both sides agreed to the government’s right to “form roads and establish military posts” in Indian territory; terms for maintaining peace and for assigning reparations for losses on either side; indemnity for any prior destruction caused by the emigrants; The United States would give each tribe $50,000 worth of supplies and gifts annually to each tribe for damages; in return for safe passage and the right to establish military forts along the trails. In addition to these payments the often nomadic tribes agreed to make peace among themselves and honor traditional hunting grounds for winter and summer camps. On Sept. 17 all parties signed the treaty. Of course. Congress unilaterally reduced the terms of the treaty the following year from 50 years to 10 years.

The Horse Creek Treaty was considered a legally binding international treaty that was not to be broken. However, the U.S. government soon failed to fulfill its promises. It did not protect the hunting grounds and it increasingly demanded more land from the Indians. The young braves were impatient and angry seeing their lands shrink and their people sinking in hopelessness. In 1854, tension erupted into warfare at a large Brulé village near Fort Laramie, where 4,000 natives awaited their overdue government annuities – the annual payments due them under the 1851 Treaty.

By 1864 the treaty was no longer being honored by either party, and the breakdown of the treaty contributed to the “Indian Wars of the 1870s-1890s”.

A new treaty at Fort Laramie was written in 1868. This treaty was to bring peace between the Whites and the Sioux who agreed to settle within the Black Hills reservation in the Dakota Territory. The United States recognized the Black Hills as part of the Great Sioux Reservation, set aside for exclusive use by the Sioux people. In 1874, however, General George A. Custer led an expedition into the Black Hills accompanied by miners who were seeking gold.

The United States would continue its battle against the Sioux in the Black Hills until the government confiscated the land in 1877. To this day, ownership of the Black Hills remains the subject of a legal dispute between the U.S. government and the Sioux.

1 quart of oil contaminates 250,000 gallons of water. Methane de-aerates the water.
In 2 Years, Energy Transfer Partners, the company Behind DAPL Reported 69 Accidents, Polluting Rivers in 4 States. The report lists 42 oil spills, 11 natural gas spills, nine gasoline spills, three propane spills, two “other” spills and two “unknown” spills. The 69 accidents led to eight injuries and five evacuations. There were 220 ‘Significant’ Pipeline Spills in 2016, more than 176,000 gallons of oil spilled in western North Dakota in Dec. 2016 alone.

There are 2.5 million miles of pipe, 55% of the U.S. network i.e. 135,000 miles are more than 45 years old. Based on data from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), the number of significant pipeline incidents grew 26.8 % from 2006 to 2015. A significant incident is defined as one that results in serious injury or fatality, costs more than $50,000, releases more than five barrels of volatile fluids such as gasoline or 50 barrels of other liquids, or results in a fire or explosion. In 2015, there were 326 such incidents—almost one per day. Of 466 incidents studied only 22 percent, or 105, were detected by advanced detection systems, ALL others were found in different ways, with the public finding 99 of the leaks.

Since 2010, over 3,330 incidents of crude oil and liquefied natural gas leaks or ruptures have occurred on U.S. pipelines. These incidents have killed 80 people, injured 389 more, and cost $2.8 billion in damages…. Dec. 13, 2016 Colorado a 6-inch fiberglass gathering line (byproduct of oil and gas extraction) pipeline leaked into local water in Saul’s Creek which is an intermittent stream flowing into Beaver Creek which meets the Los Pinos River shutting down 17 wells and an earthen dam, AND on Wed. Jan. 25, 2017 a 12-inch underground pipeline initially spotted in a farm field in north-central Worth County, Iowa leaked nearly 140,000 gallons of diesel. Feb. 7, 2017 an 8-inch pipeline owned by Hilcorp Alaska, LLC began leaking natural gas which is dissolving in the water. Feb. 16, 2016 in North-Central Iowa a 12” pipeline bursts and spilled over 130,000 gallons of diesel, Feb. 22, 2017 Hanlontown, Iowa, the Magellan Pipeline leaked 138,600 gallons of diesel fuel and Feb. 23, 2017 a six-inch line operated by Belle Fourche Pipeline leaked into the river northwest of Belfield in Billings County. By the time it was shut down, oil had traveled about 2.5 miles down the river. Or what about the Feb. 7, 2017 Hilcorp 8-inch undersea pipeline leaking at a rate between 210,000 and 310,000 cubic feet of gas a day, so don’t attempt to tell me how safe pipelines are. Creating a second Flint Michigan and killing people with environmental waste is not the way to make America great.

When researching the routing of DAPL a PER CAP IMPACT INDICATOR and PROJECT THRESHOLDS STATISTICAL OBSERVANCE of how many people would be affected by a leak north of Bismarck the PER CAP IMPACT INDICATOR stated Bismarck had a relatively large amount of people who would be affected, however the number of people affected by a leak in Lake Oahe was listed as zero. What this means they felt is there was not one single person out of 18 million people who would be directly affected WHEN the pipeline breaks who were even considered.

The questions not asked were: How would the Dakota Access Pipeline be different from other pipelines? How a will leak impact the soil? How long is it expected to take before it starts leaking? Being under Lake Oahe how long before someone even notices the leak?

Every time the earth is drilled, she cries a little tear…

Photo Essay 1904-1924 ‘The North American Indian’
Born on a Wisconsin farm in 1868, Edward Sheriff Curtis grew up to become a commercial photographer in Seattle. In 1895 he photographed Princess Angeline, the daughter of the Duwamish chief Seattle, for whom the city was named. That encounter sparked Curtis’ lifelong fascination with the cultures and lives of Native American tribes. He soon joined expeditions to visit tribes in Alaska and Montana. In 1906, Curtis was approached by wealthy financier J.P. Morgan, who was interested in funding a documentary project on the indigenous people of the continent. They conceived a 20-volume series, called The North American Indian. Continue Reading

So what should we do? forget it? Let them do?
Remain silent? Leave our home with tail between the legs?
And what to say to our brothers and sisters who have sacrificed?
What to do of the tears, the pain suffered and the shed blood?
Think about the paradox of this struggle:
the enemy has deployed hordes of police, soldiers, National Guards.
Missing only the Marines and the Navy Seals. For what?
To counter a peaceful people movement and unarmed. Surreal.
The enemy knows only this language. Just this!
But we do not. We have different ways to go.
After a losing battle remain two things:
At first, the anger and the pain that he had to back away.
And then the pride and the desire for justice that do raise and continue the fight.
We are able to learn from everything .. it is victory or defeat.
In recent months we have learned a lot and we will treasure it all.
Sooner or later all the chickens come home to roost .. the rope eventually breaks.
And while they are still on their static certainties,
we grow and there we spread.
The enemy fights for base money.
We are fighting for human rights.
The difference is great and sooner or later events show which fight is more important.
Hug the Brothers and Sisters who have paid the price of this battle.
I can only promise that: We don’t give up! They can make us back away, they can hit us,
They can pretend that we take the despair.
But if they think this, then they have not understood anything.
They can try to stop those who fight for a just cause,
but the Revolution .. The Change .. are Unstoppable!
We take a breath, we take care of the wounds, we remain united and ready for the next step.
Surrender is not an option.
Hoka Hey, beloved Brothers and Sisters!..

2-26-17 ~ I ILM Team San Francisco, CA … (Standing Rock, ND) Kate Arrington was arrested last night by Federal GFP officers at the prairie Knights casino.

Kate is what the water protectors are calling a keyboard warrior as she worked diligently on covering the events at Standing Rock and pushing media out from her hotel room at Prairie Knights Casino and Resort. Kate is well known in the Water Protector community and many are wondering why this mother, daughter and sister was arrested as her role in Standing Rock is providing the public with valid and factual information VIA Facebook and other media outlets. Her friends say she hasn’t done anything wrong besides covering standing Rock as media.

As the days role onward media in Standing Rock fear their rights may be violated by the militia police presence in and around Standing Rock.

What does one do when law no longer protects us as citizens of the United States and what does one do to protect themselves against illegal arrests and raids?

We will provide more information as it comes available.

2-26-17 ~ Jana Stone… Our vision with the Rise of the 7th Generation/Blackhoop camp was to provide a safe space for fleeing refugees from the other camps, to at least rest a bit before their next move, and we succeeded in that, at least for awhile. But tribal land ownership is fractioned and complicated and we’re not totally legal to be here after all. We will be after probate on Thursday but the raid is tomorrow. We feel sure that’s why our eviction notice was originally 10 days but was soon shrunk to 5. DAPL’s influence is far reaching.

So, now we are to be the refugees, again, alongside all these other traumatized folks. We came to protect the water and indigenous rights, and we sure shed a lot of light on both. We are invited to join Sacred Stone as well as CRST, but we don’t know what we will do. We’re tired. Our trucks are broke.

The Humvees arrived at the barricade late last night. The wolves are near.

2-25-17 ~ Johnny Dangers… Propane tanks used for heat are being banned at Sacred Stone Camp. Also water is being limited. Rosebud has a real militarized presence now!

Hours ago BIA blocked propane delivery used for heating at Sacred Stone Camp at their barricaded checkpoint. Reports of one water jug per person coming in. Feds including Park Rangers are all over the area. Rosebud Camp is now currently under what looks like a military occupation with the same vehicles used in the Oceti Oyate Camp Raid.

Invading a prayer camp would be shameful but when has that stopped the colonizers.

When have they listened to prayer?

I watched them destroy an inipi (Lakota Sweatlodge) from he hill up on Rosebud less than an hour after a grandmother was arrested praying outside it after not being able to finish her prayers.

I hope they listen to the prayers everyone is sending but I fear they will not.

2-25-17 ~ Hector Lavalle… “The 35-page legal analysis of the pipeline’s potential environmental risks and its impact on treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux and other indigenous tribes was authored in December by then-Interior Department Solicitor Hilary C. Tompkins, an Obama appointee who was — at the time — the top lawyer in the department.

“The government-to-government relationship between the United States and the Tribes calls for enhanced engagement and sensitivity to the Tribes’ concerns,” Tompkins wrote. “The Corps is accordingly justified should it choose to deny the proposed easement.”

Tompkins’ opinion was dated Dec. 4, the same day the Obama administration announced that it was denying an easement for the controversial crossing and initiating an environmental impact statement that would explore alternative routes for the pipeline. Tompkins did not respond to a request by ABC News to discuss her analysis or the decision made to withdraw it.”

“The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe reacted to yesterday’s false claims by White House Press Secretary Spicer that “our team has been in contact with all the parties involved” and also claimed that “we are constantly in touch with them” regarding the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL).

In fact, no one from the Administration has contacted the tribe according to a press statement sent to Native News Online this morning regarding issue. The tribe maintains Spicer twice lied about the President’s promise to negotiate a solution between Tribes and Energy Transfer Partners.

2-25-17 ~ Andrea Zanardi‎ … I hoped would not end this way.
Deep down I knew that, despite the great heart and great courage, evil would win. And ‘so it was.

Evil has bitten the brake, waited patient and then exploded in all its violence, vulgar, trampling Rights, Justice and Intelligence. Has burned, has crashed and destroyed .. slapped freedom and smothered in blood and tears a whole people.

Peaceful protests are as crystal: beautiful, fascinating and stimulating as extremely and sadly fragile.

Peaceful protests, to get results, take time and opponents with common sense, logical skills and a modicum of humanity.

Unfortunately, in the specific case of North Dakota, the time was not enough .. and the opponent was none other than a rabid monster, able to use only violence and money to achieve their personal goals.

You can not reason with those who are unable to communicate .. you can not deal with those who impose their will by threatening and military force .. you can not extend the hands to those who just want ammanettarle .. you can not explain your reasons to who do you tip him a weapon ready to shoot you.

Hard to talk to those who don’t listen .. difficult to show alternatives to those who can’t see beyond their nose .. hard to find meeting points with those who only know the language of violence.

In recent months, my brothers and my sisters in Standing Rock, showed a myopic world courage and self-sacrifice out of the ordinary .. have withstood the infamous militia of the government, the senseless violence, the unjustified arrests and cold winter and ruthless.
In recent days it has consumed the sad final momentary (?) of this History page.
I’m hurt to see our world remain silent and walk towards a shitty future like nothing had happened .. insensitive to the sacrifices made and the true values.

My heart is destroyed, tears in his eyes and the soul closer to my brothers and my sisters.
But there is still alive anger and hope that this struggle remains exemplary and is repeated in every place where the arrogance of power tries to trample on Human Rights.
Standing Rock has planted a seed.
Grow something.

2-24-17 ~ Saul David Madrigal … It has been sad day for America. Welcome to the police state. You will follow your orders or be imprisoned and beaten if you resist. You have no rights. There are no laws that protect you. You are here to prop up the rich, your masters, your overlords.

We had unarmed civilians standing up for their rights, their treaty lands, the water, the air, with lethal weapons pointed at them. Journalists with credentials were walked off in hand cuffs. A civilian waiting for a tow truck on a public highway threatened by armed military personnel and militarized police in riot gear. There were groups of unarmed civilians, forced onto unstable ice over a river as swat teams cattle them.

The Standing Rock movement has indirectly created a training ground for the implementation of Marshal Law, for the police state, for the NWO. We have National Guard, federal and state law enforcement personnel and equipment from multiple states. They have been brainwashed and trained to follow orders and dehumanize those who stand against tyranny. They do not realize that they are on the same side of history as the Nazis in Germany. They are deaf, blind, dumb, and born to follow.

The mistake they made, however, was that while driving blindly towards us with all their force, they woke the world up and a new Army of protectors has risen. An Army who will never back down, for we know, the future of civilization depends on us. The time for rest is over. Every able minded and able bodied person alive on this planet today must take action, NOW. Find out what you are good at and perfect it and then teach your neighbor or friend. We can take back control, but it will take every single one of us, working tirelessly and supporting each other.
Game on.

2-24-17 ~ Energy transfer partners in a court document claims now that the drilling for the Dakota Access Pipeline is finished.

This is 43 days before their projected finish date of 60 more days needed to drill. They were projected to finish somewhere around April 8th if the drilling did commence on February 8th. This may be proof and it is a strong possibility that they were illegally drilling in times before the easement was granted. They claim they can lay the Pipeline under the river and have oil flowing by march 6th – April 1st.

The Standing Rock Sioux, Cheyanne River Sioux, and Oglala Sioux Tribes all have pending court dates suing Energy Transfer partners and DAPL. On February 27th the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe have a hearing in Washington DC about their temporary restraining order to stop drilling based on the religious freedom and restoration act and the American Indian religious freedom act. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is suing Energy Transfer Partners and DAPL on the basis of upholding the national historic preservation act, the tribal conservational provisions act and the Environmental Policy Act.

The Oglala Sioux Tribe is suing on the basis of the adequacy of the EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) and whether or not the Trump administration was arbitrary and wrongfully discarded the EIS all together to allow the drilling to continue. The Yankton Sioux Tribe is expected to file a lawsuit as well to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
This fight is not over ! As Chase IronEyes stated earlier today. We must adapt. There are still the Sacred Stone and the Black Hoop camp remaining. They can’t stop us. #nodapl #standingrock

2-24-17 ~ ‎Isaac Ames‎ … Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.

As I write this I reflect on the past few months, they’ve been cold and they’ve been difficult at times, not everyone agreed on the path and each chose their own according to their heart. There was conflict but that doesn’t matter anymore, what we have is a bond that can never be broken. Let us lift each other up in prayer, appreciation, and thankfulness. I do not agree with the path chosen by law enforcement, but I will pray for them as well. I will pray that their hearts will be turned one day and they will learn to walk the Red Road with all of us.

Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.

Personally I would like to mention Jameson Dargen being the last holding ground at Oceti, sitting on a roof, holding the North Dakota flag, and not coming down until he decided to. He didn’t fight or antagonize; only engaged in peaceable protest and communication. That was his stand and I will always be honored to call him friend.

Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.

One fire has been extinguished, but millions more are being ignited from it and from each that burns inside everyone of us; and one fire can ignite a wildfire that is unquenchable that can spread across nations and beyond oceans of distance and time.

Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.

Regardless of circumstances, we have each other and those we’ve never met, those we may never meet. Regardless of what comes tomorrow, we have today. We have our love for the sacred and respect for it, this can never be taken from us.

Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.

You are life, you are love, and you are everything you ever dreamed to be. From now until your last days, remember, you stood on a good side of history.

Take heart my relatives, you are not alone and never will be again.
Mni Wiconi.

2-24-17 ~ Tom Goldtooth … The following is a statement by Tom Goldtooth, the Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network:

“We are appalled by today’s forced evacuations of indigenous people at the Camp at Standing Rock, they are a violent and unnecessary infringement on the constitutional right of water protectors to peacefully protest and exercise their freedom of speech. It hinders the camp cleanup process and creates confusion and chaos that puts the Missouri River at risk of pollution from construction and camping debris.

“Today’s expulsion is a continuation of a centuries old practice, where the U.S. Government forcefully removes Indigenous people from our lands and territories. We urge supporters of the water protectors to continue to resist this travesty by organizing mass mobilizations, distributed actions, speaking out against the violations of the Treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation, and continuing to source up the capacity for litigation and grassroots organizing against the Dakota Access pipeline.

“Our hearts are not defeated. The closing of the camp is not the end of a movement or fight, it is a new beginning. They cannot extinguish the fire that Standing Rock started. It burns within each of us. We will rise, we will resist, and we will thrive. We are sending loving thoughts to the water protectors along the banks of the Cannonball River, today. May everyone be as safe as can be. #noDAPL”

2-24-17 ~ Lyla June and Jodi Archambault Gillette are both correct. We scored a major victory on Feb 22-23 but the war is not over.
Why is it a victory?
Vietnam fighting in pajamas went up against the greatest super power on Earth and won. The USA had greater fire power and never lost a single battle, yet they lost the war. How can that be?

In war is that we have a condition called “moral authority”. The USA claims that they have the moral authority to fight communism because it was evil. They lost the moral authority when Americans start seeing dead children and women bombed and killed by the Americans. Also, the public was against the soldiers coming home dead in a war they did not want to participate in.

The USA had declared victory but during the Tet offensive that image of victory was shattered when troops poured into the capital city of Vietnam.

They pulled out of the war shortly after because public opinion and protests were crippling the America economy. The USA had lost their moral authority.

Victory at Standing Rock?
Flash forward to Standing Rock. When troops, armor vehicles and militarized police rolled into Standing Rock to arrest little old ladies, unarmed people in prayer and to occupy Treaty lands, the USA lost their “moral authority”. All mainstream media and alternative media covered it.

People all over the world are now even more outraged about the mistreatment of indigenous peoples.

This is the beginning of the end of Dakota Access Pipeline. Even if they finish the pipeline and oil flows through it, all the banks, governments and USA that support the pipelines will be crippled by the people of the world taking out the anger on the USA.

The USA has always claimed “moral authority” to be the heart and soul of the world. They preach that American capitalism is the best. How many people around the world and in the USA believe this narrative anymore?

Next Steps?
The Great Sioux Nation is well on its way to victory.
– 350 to 700 indigenous nations have come together
– indigenous issues are at the forefront of the world stage
– water, land and treaty rights are in the forefront
– injustice for indigenous peoples and oppressed peoples are in alliance with one another
– the USA moral authority is no longer existent for pipelines

Unity?
The SRST tribal council are not the enemy and the water protectors are not the enemy. The enemy is ETP, DAPL, banks and the system that supports their oppression.
Just a reminder that the fight is not over. The SRST still needs our full support to fight the battle in the courts and elsewhere. We may be judging the Chairman too harshly without knowing all the circumstances and all the information like Jodi Archambault-Gillette said with the slice and dice video taken out of context.

Most important aspect in the Art of War from Sun Tzu is “The Will of the People”. You lose the support of the nation and you lose the war. The leader must regain the trust of the people and the people must trust the leadership. Moral authority is a double edge sword. Time for a serious heart to heart pow wow for the tribal council to unite with the water protectors to defeat the black snake.

This confusion happened because outside forces are now controlling how the story is being written and told. It is no fault of anyone.

It is time to fix the problem.

2-21-17 ~ Unify… The snow is starting to melt at Standing Rock and flooding at the main campsite is still a strong possibility. So we are quickly hauling away all of the leftover trash on site so we leave it cleaner than we found it. We are 80% of the way there.

Meanwhile, the water protectors on site have been asked to leave by Wednesday. And there are many who have decided to stay standing at Standing Rock regardless of this threat..

We will continue support the water protectors, the U.S. veterans, and thousands of other people who support a clean future for the human race. We ask your to pray with us tomorrow and take action to support our efforts.
This is a prayer for the water that nourishes all of us. On all sides.

Help support our victory by donating now. Our team is working on site to deliver firewood, distribute food to the local communities, create media, and help the clean up of camp. Let’s support those who are coming together to protect our planet.

2-20-17 ~ Jennie Monet… The Prairie Knights Casino and Resort is swarming with rangers with the National Park Service; their vehicles are everywhere in the parking lot. Tonight, I observed them checking in to their hotel rooms. To witness a tribally-owned resort become the essential staging ground to remove its disowned water protectors — some of whom stood by and observed the rangers with me — is in a word, surreal. Today, the two groups shared eating schedules inside the casino buffet but held their own private meetings in separate conference rooms. The one I attended was called “Honoring the Grandmothers” where women came together for strength. Tears were shared. But in the other room, just steps away, the rangers were likely unpacking their plans of how to use force, if needed, to drive away these Lakota women and others from their ancestral homelands.

2-20-17 ~ Brandon Green… I haven’t done a live stream in a while. So I will go live tonight. I have a message in my heart I want to share. I was told I need to be careful with my feeds but I have to follow my heart and my path I am being guided down. I was told by an elder at Standing Rock that if I am ever unsure about what to do, to just simply follow my heart. These words have carried with me for months and they havent failed me yet. I refuse to censor myself. Its the transparency I have shown that has brought this love and support together. I refuse to not share my story and my journey because someone out there in the world may need to hear it. We are all human and we all make mistakes. I am willing to accept and learn from my mistakes and continue to grow but I will not censor my heart. This is the Rise of The 7th Generation. We are made up of all the races of man, all religions, all cultures. We are here and we are here to help change this world. Not just for native people, but for all people. Corporations no longer see color. They aim to dissolve all those who oppose their tyrannical reign over mother earth’s resources. They seek to destroy all those who oppose their system of modern day slaves. The 7th Generation is here to wake up the world, and we cannot do that if we censor our hearts! The heart is where our path is! Aho!

2-19-17 ~ ‎Ray R Ferrer‎… Latinos of the Americas are decendents of the American Indian. Through DNA genetics it’s been scientifically proven that over 20,000 years ago the American Indian migrated from North America, through Mexico and South America up through the Caribbean Islands. Although the red, white, blue, one star Puerto Rican Flag thats depicted on my Taino Indian post is a product of the colonization from the USA, because Puerto Rico is a colony of the united States, doesn’t change the fact that we, descendants of the Taino/Arawak Indigenous people, all know who the enemy is. We support Standing Rock Water Protectors.

Standing Rock;
(If I Could Be Where You Are)
Had a dream last night
as I faded to sleep.
I could hear the breeze whisper
of a river that weeps.

As I stood on this rock
looking out towards the horizon.
I see the Eagle fly
above the dust of the Bison.

Images of thousands
In this far away land.
People standing tall
holding hand to hand.

I could feel their spirit
calling my name.
Telling me their blood
and mine are the same.

In the land of the brave
where my ancestors roam.
There’s an evil of greed
destroying their home.

Standing Rock Dakota
Sacred land so far.
Water Protectors
If I could be where you are.~RF©

2-18-17 ~ LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard … It was a day of laughter and mud, everyone working hard to clean up the camps, getting things moved out, people working with each other, good songs, laughter and slipping in the mud, it is good to see smiling faces.

I do get a little down with the gossip I understand that is how a community lives instead of finding truth they live with lies, it comes from a long history of injustice. but I can’t let lies get me down I must stand by truth and prayer. The lies of DAPL, Morton County, Army Corp of Engineers, National Guard, governor of North Dakota, newspaper and local media. most of lies coming out of the community is just what they heard from media, every day you are either super human with super powers because some of the things people say you do when most of the time you are just wore out and want to sleep.

In this movement there are no leaders so it is hard when people think you should tell other people what to do when you don’t even know who everyone is. There is no hierarchy with water there just people standing up for the water. When there are no leaders it makes it hard for people to understand, my dear friend was questions last night and told to tell her people not to make threats and it is surprising because she is just a nice women who is not in charge of anyone. I pray that everyone take two steps back from the he said she said and find the truth, non-natives are having a hay day spreading gossip to the Indians to cause division again.

2-19-17 ~ Johnny Dangers ~ Oceti Oyate Clean-Up and Barricade Update – J Grady

2-18-17 ~ Red Lightening… Thank you All Who Worked So Hard!
Excited to share a video of several deliveries of camp donations that have delivered to local Standing Rock communities..

For the past month Red Lightning has been supporting a Team of 10-14 Water Protectors called the Green Team that are focused on cleaning up and breaking down the main Oceti Sakowin.

The Green Teams Primary intentions are:

– Support community leaders, families, and elders with breaking down their camp structures and cleaning up the campsites. Also assisting in transporting and putting up the new structures at new camp

– Protect the water and land by focusing on cleaning up trash and waste before the spring thaw and water levels rise

– Focus energy on ensuring that all the blessings of food and clothing, blanket, and sleeping bags that flowed to the camps go to new camps being set up and becoming a blessing to surrounding tribal community.

Supporting in this phase of camp has been a blessings & an honor. One of the best parts is the donation runs. The scale of donations that are piled up in the camp from before the winter storms reduced the camp size from 12,000+ to under 1,000 is hard to communicate. There are many tents and structures full around camp.

The clean up crews that have come in from the Standing Rock tribe to help have been a blessing of heavy equipment, but also A challenge. A challenge because they have been bulldozing tents full of good materials and putting them in dumpsters for the landfill.

So far there have been 7 trailers loads from just the main kitchen supply and main camp donation tents. Each trailer has approx 4,000 – 5,000 lbs of food and clothing, blanket, and sleeping bag donations..
Roughly our team has moved 14+ tons of donations could possibly have ended up in the landfill Its been wonderful to make sure the blessings for the camps have become a blessings to local tribal families.

Deep gratitude to all the members of the Oceti Sakowin Camp who have been working so hard to clean up before the spring thaw.

Specifically like to acknowledge Red Lightning Green Team members:

Jonah Lee
Simone Schulz
Maya Rose Berko
Timothy Powers
Tristan Drizdan Bennett
Connor M Evans
Stan Smith
Alex KuroNeko Thanh
Dongles Walloo
Cyrus Mayer
LeRoy West
SunShine Bear – Sunny
Big Love to Media Team for capturing the magic and telling the story… while also cleaning up…
Kalen Wolf
Moon Mandel

Deeply grateful to Unify for supporting the Green Team and their awesome media team continuing to share the stories of Standing Rock.

The main camp is under an eviction notice from Army Coprs of Engineers by February 22nd. There is so much work to complete before then.

Red Lightning Camp will breakdown before the 22nd and will update later on what is next phase for Red Lightning @ Standing Rock.

Please continue to send prayers & blessings more now than ever!

There is still a need for funding to support camp move and the clean up for Spring.

2-17-17 ~ Adam Elfers‎ … I love Standing Rock. I love our elders, the youth, the water protectors, the land, the river, the sacred fire, the spirit of this movement & everything it has & continues to teach me. Humbling. Strengthening. Guiding.

Even though I’m far away right now. My heart is with them and all the water protectors.

We’ve all given so much of ourselves to this movement and we pray for the help of our families, Creator, and that the pipeline company and Morton County realize what they are doing is wrong and the effects and repercussions of their actions effect millions of people, born and unborn, the winged, the four legged and all in between.

No matter what happens, this movement has changed my life. I’m still #StandingWithStandingRock.

They are calling on Mizuho Bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, and the Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group to withdraw their funding for the Dakota Access Pipeline, saying the $3.7 billion project threatens Lake Oahe, the indigenous Standing Rock Sioux Nation’s only source of drinking water in North Dakota.

2-17-17 ~ Adam Elfers‎ … In this time of uncertainty & change we must find our center, our pillar, our strength, return to our roots & ask:
What do we stand for?
& slowly, like the whispers of an ancient wind, these words arise:
*WE ARE WATER PROTECTORS; WE ARE THE HEALERS OF THESE TIMES; We STAND*
We stand for water
We stand for earthz
We stand for sacred sites
We stand for Native American rights
We stand for the coming together of the People:all colors, all tribes-
We stand for equality, justice, and thriving ecologies
We stand for a future where our children can drink fresh water and walk barefoot on lush, sacred grounds
We stand up to the invasion of the earth, the people, and the waterways by those who attempt to seize the rivers, forests, and native villages for their own short term monetary gain, private persons & corporations backed by military, police, and a corrupt judicial system.
We stand United, Stronger than ever. Knowing who we are, why we are here, and what it is we came to do.

Protect the Sacred. Honor The Earth. Unite the Tribes.
So repeat it with this mantra now:

There are proposed laws that could put very mild charges into immediate felonies (10 year jail, 20,000 fine, myself and hundreds of others included) there is a military state getting closer to the camps. There are water protectors who know what it means to stand up for the sacred, for the next seven generations, regardless of these laws, brutality, injustice. & all of us, are still standing.
We need you engaged & ready to act.

3 different phones, 2 mobile wifi hotspots, and our media team couldn’t get a live feed out. It appears live feeds were being blocked. Today, Water Protectors met with members of the Governors office, Army Corp of a Engineers, National Guard, Indian Affairs, and others on the middle of Cannonball Bridge, located between the Standing Rock reservation, and Army Corp land . With the intention of discussing cleanup, officials avoided any questions from the camp regarding the pipeline, treaty rights, illegal property sales to DAPL and other concerns. Discussing further Camp assessment from Army Corp, camp voices including Holy Elk, LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Chase Iron Eyes and other camp voices are currently speaking with agencies to come into an agreement. Once again ignoring the camp locations above potential flood plains, the agencies are still set on the February 22nd eviction date.

2-15-17 ~ Lee Sprague… Everybody is in legal jeopardy. The Morton County Sheriff is trying to frame Water Protectors and Allies to intimidate them.. Once arrested, they will overcharge an individual, and try to get them to snitch others out.

That’s not gonna happen.
.
You can see in my documents below that the Sheriff indicates that I confessed. The Sheriff also notes that I have two subjects with video cameras on. I can assure you, the Video Cameras do not show me confessing. If the Morton County Sheriff is willing to lie, when their are two cameras rolling, you can see the depths they will go to.

Pressure. Criminal Defense Attorneys barred in North Dakota are Not available for many water protectors. I did try contacting one criminal defense attorney, but there was no return call. I think they are busy. I have a brother on the Morton County Domestic Terrorism List. Others have charges filed against them also. A cousin who has had her trial delayed, and cannot leave the state. There are Tribal Members from my Triibe in SW Michigan and other Tribes who have members who are charged with Crimes while in Standing Rock.

So Legal Expenses seems to be the instrument they will try and use to break up the Water Protectors, get them to turn in evidence and start going after other Water Protectors. Then they go after family members and threaten them with financial intimidation, legal intimidation, to get family members to crack creating desperation and fear.. Its a common tactic.

It has been reported that Standing Rock used some of the money donated for a Legal Defense Fund for Water Protectors to clean up the camp. This may be a rumor.

So I at least have two video tapes of the incident, that is contradictory to what the Officer wrote down in his report regarding my so called “confession.”

I believe the Morton County Sheriff has overcharged Water Protectors and will increase the financial pressure on Water Protectors and their families to coerce confessions. This combined with the lack of criminal attorneys tp properly represent their defenses against baseless charges, will be used to create a sense of desperation, to get them to confess and point out other Water Protectors.

So I am gonna continue my quest for a criminal defense attorney that will work for nothing, and have the skills and time to properly defend those innocent. This is a snowball that is ready to start rolling down hill fast.

Everyone is in legal jeopardy at this point. And it wont stop us from fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, Protect Water Protectors at Standing Rock, and Continue to build our Eco Village at Sacred Stone.

This Legal Resouce Site for Water Protectors is Legit. Great leveraging of resources and continuity of defense of Water Protectors. Volunteer Lawyers, who are here to help, and they can house water protectors when their court dates are needed.

2-14-17 ~ The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s Litigation on the Dakota Access Pipeline. Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Asks Federal Court To Set Aside Trump’s Pipeline Reversal; Critical Motion Charges Trump Administration Circumvents Law And Ignores Treaty Rights.

Today, on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Earthjustice filed a motion for summary judgment on the major legal claims in the lawsuit filed against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to prevent the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline under Lake Oahe near tribal lands. The motion for summary judgment asks the judge to rule on major legal questions that have not yet been resolved during this case, including whether National Environmental Policy Act requirements have been met and whether the Corps’ actions violate the tribe’s treaty rights.

The judge appears ready to move forward on this case on an expedited basis, which is vital since attorneys for the Dakota Access Pipeline now say construction could be completed much sooner than they originally told the court. Dakota Access has been ordered to reply to our motion within three weeks. Continue Reading

There are several ways into camp from the South, It is marginally better, but the BIA and Tribal Police have blocked the bridge at the request of the Morton County Sheriff Department.

Try coming from the South to Prairie Knights Casino. Avoid Bismarck and Mandan on the way here. They target folks. I am not naming a specific way, so it does not become targeted by the Po Po.
In the article it mentions several items carried by the Veterans, that were used as a pretext to arrest and charge Veterans with crimes.

We take extraordinary measures to avoid being stopped and pulled over when we do go to Bismarck. We don’t take it for granted that is is ever safe driving rescue supplies, medical equipment, safety gear and supplies into camp to help keep people safe, and from harm by the National Guard, the Morton County Po Po and Mercenaries hired by the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The snow has been melting but ice and frozen ground underneath. Some dwellings frozen to the ground with water inside. The Cannonball River system and local watershed has not even thawed yet, but with weather being unpredictable (like Trump), Spring weather could come earlier this year. “Facebook Hill”, is high-ground and is prime real estate (in a bad choice of words…haha). New camps being formed south of the river, on top of the hill, with camp names such as, “7th Generation Rising Camp (originally called Cangleska Sapa-Black Hoop camp), Cheyenne River Sioux Camp, Eagle Nest Camp (above Sacred Stone Camp) and another trying to be formed west of 1806, across the Cheyenne River camp.

2-13-17 ~ Douglas Mehring‎… A seed was planted in North Dakota. It was planted by the youth who saw that something was wrong. They nurtured it with their sweat and it became a plant. They watched and spoke out and it grew. They ran, carrying their words far and wide. People listened and it grew to become a sapling. These people showed up to see for themselves. They nurtured that sapling with their sweat and it became a tree. The taller this young tree grew the more people saw it. They came to add their sweat, to help it grow and so it did. Storms came as peoples camps were raided and that tree grew its own seeds. Nov 20th fire came to cut down this tree and some limbs fell, more seeds flew and people saw and came to add their tears to the sweat so the tree would grow stronger. The Vets showed up and added food to the prayers and tree matured. The winds took those seeds that had fallen and they began to grow. They grew in Texas and Florida. They grew in Iowa and Oklahoma. The more the winds blow the further the seeds spread. The more these younger trees grow the further their own seeds went. Tennessee and Ohio, West Virginia and New York now have seeds planted and trees growing. That tree in North Dakota is now old. It has lost limbs, Rattler and Red Fawn, Angry Bird and many others but it has given more than it lost and Its still alive. Its not just a tree anymore, its a great forest. Have you nurtured your seed today? Have you sweated and cried for it, marched and sang to it? Have you written and called your representatives today? Have you protected your local tree today? Will you dig and plant, speak and teach and help this forest grow?

letourvoicesecho-standingrock-indianholocaust-nodapl

2-13-17 ~ Isaac Ames… For everyone who’s never been arrested and had to fight charges this is a precursor of what to expect, completely, when one is arrested.

First, if you so much as make any element of putting those bracelets on difficult for the officer, according to the cops, that’s resisting arrest. These are people who are allowed to make a mistake in reaction and shoot you dead on the spot; however, you are always expected to have perfect reactions when they interact with you.

Seem unfair?
It is.

Innocent until proven guilty is a myth sold off in this country, don’t believe the hype. That’s why they arrest and process you; it lends weight to the prosecution in its creation by assuming the officer correct in arresting you. Ever hear the phrase, ‘If they were innocent they wouldn’t have been arrested’? This is where it stems from.

If they don’t read you your Miranda Rights you are technically not even arrested, you’re being detained. Don’t forget that under any circumstance. Be polite and courteous, even if they’re not. The key of the law is to be blameless before it.

You’re going to be transported and that transportation is going to be recorded with audio and video. So cussing, spitting, kicking around, and such is only going to be accessed against you. You’re going to go to a holding cell and you’re going to be processed into custody. You’ll get naked and it’s always a bit awkward the first time you have to squat, spread, and cough the first few times.

Take a breath and remember that this person has seen some heinous individuals in their career, and yes, things have been found hanging/falling out of people. They’ll fingerprint you and get information pertinent to your existence, one way or another. Try not to be belligerent to the processing/intake officer, they’re just admin after all.

You’ll be put in a holding cell that has no comfortable place to sit and the lights will be on always, if you’re lucky it won’t be that cold. Your shirt works as an eye mask for sleeping in these kinds of instances. No, you’re not guaranteed a phone call in immediacy, that’s TV bullshit. When you get housed you have protective custody (PC) or general population, each has their benefits and drawbacks. PC assumes you’ve been touching children, are a rapist, or are an informant; but you get a fair amount of isolation and privacy. However, this also marks you by the general population as someone in need of a beating; why else would you PC up?

General population means TV, human interaction, and such. However, you’ll get asked for favors like hustling extra privileges, food, and such (be amicable). Sometimes you’ll have people seem friendly and ‘look out for you’. Be careful about accepting generosity, you’ll be expected to pay it back and you might not have too much say about that. Not paying what you owe often results in violence or some form of retribution, learn to walk that fine line. Don’t look around scared, be calm and act like you’re supposed to be there or have been there before. Always decry the injustice of your incarceration when asked, when in doubt just say, ‘It’s bullshit’. There’s usually some form of rules and expected behavior, don’t be afraid to ask particulars like which toilet is for peeing and which is for poop; this is common in county lockups to be separated for privacy and hygiene.

Being quiet and minding your own business with your nose in a book usually doesn’t get people in trouble with the other inmates, usually. Speaking of, be polite and courteous. It doesn’t hurt to know a joke and laughter is a good way to make friends while you’re in.

Same goes for the guards.

They’ve seen tougher and harder than you, no one is going to be impressed with any show you put on. Best to mind your manners for everyone’s sake. Don’t forget, they can ask that person sleeping next to you to handle you when the lights go out for extra privileges, and that person might be willing to do it anyway if you’re an insufferable individual.
So what’s next?

2-13-17 ~ Unify … With the pipeline easement being granted last week, people are flooding in to the site to join the movement and help keep our water safe. We believe that we must remain at Standing Rock to stand up for what we believe in.

We ask you to pledge your support by donating to the movement.

Grandmother, the Earth is called by so many here. And as she changes her clothes, shrugging off this long Winter and emerging into Spring, our work is made all the more urgent.

Along with the Standing Rock Tribe, we are excavating leftover supplies from the thousands of supporters, tourists and passersby who have lent their support, in myriad forms, these past many months. Time is of the essence, as rising flood waters from the Missouri River will soon wash away any trash or refuse that was left behind during evacuations from blizzard conditions.

Now we roll up our sleeves and do the difficult work of sorting through the thousands of donations and camping supplies which can still be repurposed to support the struggle to stop DAPL, or that may find new life in other nearby communities.

Already we have packed and delivered two shipments of clothing and non-perishable food to nearby charities and donation centers, with plans to send out our massive 28 foot trailer fully loaded two more times.

Our trucks roll through camp, excavating forgotten tents from the frozen ground, layers of ice and the all-concealing snow. Tools purchased with your contributions allow us to overcome these barriers to our success, and scrub from this sacred land every tarp, tent stake and cigarette butt we find.

But it’s not all about cleaning. Far too many elders have been left with the responsibility of breaking down their own camps, with little or no support. These have been homes for nearly a year, and are often full of yurts, large military tents, tipis and even some fully fledged houses. Unify identifies those members of the Standing Rock community who are being forgotten and we help.

You help. We could never do it without you. From the beginning, the movement against DAPL and to protect this water has relied on the aid of those whose support came from afar. We have rallied together each according to their ability. Each piece of this movement is sacred, as each cell in the body amounts to more than the sum of its parts. And now, more than ever, it is imperative we stay together.

Though the pipeline bores on, its infamy now burnished by the support of a new Presidency, the last impact of Standing Rock remains to be seen. Will we allow this movement to come stuttering to a halt, or can we find a way to fuel this new community in a responsible, sustainable manner?

Your support means direct aid on the ground as Water Protectors begin relocating to permanent ecovillages. Sacred Stone and Rosebud have no intentions of disbanding, and have secured their future on private lands directly neighboring the flood plain.

Unify will be here, sorting recycling, restoring the land and helping Grandmother wherever we can and in whomever we see her twinkling eye. Nothing in the future is certain, but we are certain not to abandon this place, not now when Standing Rock needs us the most, not ever.

Please join us in preserving and protecting this most magical of moments, and breathing new life into the most important movement in generations.

2-12-17 ~ Another AIM Legend, Fred Short.
Dennis Banks awarded Fred and Henry Dominguez with eagle feathers. He also said that The Standing Rock protectors who had been injured on the front lines would also receive eagle feathers from him personally. He said that at some point, the American Congress passed a law that only Native Americans could possess eagle feathers. Dennis pointed out that thousands of people from all Races and many nations have shown up in South Dakota to express their support. He said they absolutely are deserving of the honor because what they have done, standing up and walking to a problem, is what the eagle feather honor is about.

While Dennis was speaking prior to awarding the feathers, I noticed Fred looking down on the ground, and then getting out of his chair and gently herding something into his hand. I watched, fascinated, as he carefully and gently walked about 50 or 60 feet across the packed Earth to a spot of grass, and released whatever he had just rescued from his hand into the protective grass. Dennis stopped speaking for a moment, apparently wondering why Fred had wandered off. Everyone quietly watched Fred save a tiny little life that many people would not have even

2-12-17 ~ Kevin Martin… This is a military staging tactic wherein you demonize the populace and create an image of people that are hypocritical and less than honorable, that way they appear to be trouble makers, and liers.

The real truth will be told, because both sides have had a longer period of time to prepare, and our new government is embolden by a series of flagrant actions, and an aggressive narcissist for a leader.

His handshake with foreign Ieaders (Japan) is aggressive and dominating, and clearly without honor. This period of time is dangerous and all actions need consideration of our collective vulnerability in a termination staged political arena.

There would be a true uprising across the US if they were to attempt such a bold action, yet small bills ( North Dakota), have been written to allow access to tribal resources. The changes in the BIA, BIE should be watched carefully, and all supportive government branches (EPA, Parks) are being staged for a fire sale. A fire sale meaning, all environmental, social, and political propundents with any protective mission will have all support shut off at once.

Mass protest it’s possibly the biggest conundrum that throws a wrench in the action, and by disavowing the intelligence, and media , the billionaire cabal has a near silent coup (soft opening), of a fascist state. The obvious question on everyone’s mind is what will be the incident that pushes the population to direct action?

It’s hard to demonize a peaceful population, and nonviolence is working. It would be wise to offer sustainable Ecovilliage, and green energy solutions. The green energy companies will be looking for a new place to do business, and the tribes have the public support for such a sustainable venture.

Yes growing pains are hard, yet the truth cuts like a knife. Our country will stand together and fight, we are growing supporters by the day. All aggressive actions are being documented by the world, and a den of thieves cannot flourish in the light. Dumping trash on a camp site is a flagrant sign of a desperate and weak minded agressor.

We will all RISE, and create water in the mountains!

2-12-17 ~ Angelo Sison… Wanted to lay low for awhile but there’s been something I wanted to get off my chest. There’s been talk of a NODAPL calendar for awhile highlighting certain individuals and certain organizations. I openly say FUCK NO to the calendar idea….unless…you have a month or page for every wood hauler, every cook, every mechanic, every security guard, every medic, every culture, every tribe, every warrior, every person who’s marched, every person who’s divested, every person who’s given up their liberties to fight for clean water, and every person from Cannon Ball and surrounding communities. If I lose support for this post….I honestly don’t give a fuck. If you glorify a certain individual such as live feeders, then you are a part of the problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re at camp, on live feeds, at the casino, in a office, or at home in front of your computer. We all have our part to play in this revolution. This movement has no leaders.

2-12-17 ~ Margaret Tuka‎… I see people want to buy rooms for water protectors. Let’s not do this. The casino is swarming with feds. Not saying any names, but one of the protectors was arrested at the casino. Let’s work on getting them water heaters for showers instead. I think that $164 would benefit the entire camps, not just one person. Just an idea. We have to protect them, while they protect us. Don’t get my words misconstrued!! They don’t need us to play hero. They are the hero’s!! Let’s just try to ensure we don’t get anyone hemmed up by BIA, Morton County, or the feds. This is just my humble opinion!!

Consistent with our previous statement by the International Indian Treaty Council in support of the SRST, it is our position that these actions taken by the President ignore both federal and international law to which the U.S. is obligated, including its legally-binding commitments under the Treaties concluded with the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota (“Great Sioux Nation”). The International Indian Treaty Council again asserts that President does not have the legal or moral authority to violate the U.S. Constitution, which states “treaties are the supreme law of the land.”

2-11-17 ~ Fairess Reid‎ … Today the North Dakota house voted in favor of 5 bills that are specifically meant to target water protectors.

They passed the “run protesters over” bill, the mask bill, and bills that turn riot offenses, criminal trespass, and causing a business economic harm of $1000 or more Class C felonies. Meaning your punishment could be up to 5 years in prison and $10,000 in penalties.

They put an emergency clause on these bills so after today they will go straight to the Senate (as opposed to waiting for crossover which happens halfway through the legislative session) So these laws could be in effect very soon.+

They have officially sanctioned murder in North Dakota. Its time.

letourvoicesecho-ocetioyate-jennimonet-sacredstone-standingrock-dennisbanks

2-11-17 ~ Jenni Monet, a Native American journalist, was arrested last week while covering Standing Rock. You’d think that would trigger a lot of support from the national and regional news media.

There is an idea in law enforcement called the “thin blue line.” It basically means that police work together. A call goes out from Morton County and, right or wrong, law enforcement from around the country provides back up.

You would think journalism would be like that too.

When one journalist is threatened, we all are. We cannot do our jobs when we worry about being injured or worse. And when a journalist is arrested? Well, everyone who claims the First Amendment as a framework should object loudly.

Last Wednesday Monet was arrested near Cannonball, North Dakota. She was interviewing water protectors who were setting up a new camp near the Dakota Access Pipeline route on treaty lands of the Great Sioux Nation. Law enforcement from Morton County surrounded the camp and captured everyone within the circle. A press release from the sheriff’s Department puts it this way: “Approximately 76 members of a rogue group of protestors were arrested.” Most were charged with criminal trespassing and inciting a riot.

As was Monet. She now faces serious charges and the judicial process will go forward. The truth must come out.

But this story is about the failure of journalism institutions.

The Native press and the institutions that carry her work had Monet’s back. That includes Indian Country Media Network, Yes! Magazine, and the Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal. In Canada the Aboriginal People’s Television Network reported on the story during its evening news. And, The Los Angeles Times has now weighed as well in with its own story written by Sandy Tolan who’s done some great reporting from Standing Rock. The Native American Journalists Association released a statement immediately: “Yesterday’s unlawful arrest of Native journalist Jenni Monet by Morton County officers is patently illegal and a blatant betrayal of our closely held American values of free speech and a free press,” NAJA President Bryan Pollard said, “Jenni is an accomplished journalist and consummate professional who was covering a story on behalf of Indian Country Today. Unfortunately, this arrest is not unprecedented, and Morton County officials must review their officer training and department policies to ensure that officers are able and empowered to distinguish between protesters and journalists who are in pursuit of truthful reporting.”

Yet in North Dakota you would not know this arrest happened. The press is silent. (UPDATE on Feb. 7: Bismarck Tribune reports on the arrest.)

I have heard from many, many individual journalists. That’s fantastic. But what about the institutions of journalism? There should news stories in print, digital and broadcast. There should be editorials calling out North Dakota for this egregious act. If the institutions let this moment pass, every journalist covering a protest across the country will be at risk of arrest.

After her release from jail, Monet wrote for Indian Country Media Network, “When Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman was charged with the same allegations I now face—criminal trespassing and rioting—her message to the world embraced the First Amendment. ‘There’s a reason why journalism is explicitly protected by the U.S. Constitution,’ she said before a crowd gathered in front of the Morton County courthouse. “Because we’re supposed to be the check and balance on power.”

The funny thing is that journalism institutions were not quick to embrace Goodman either. I have talked to many journalists who see her as an “other” because she practices a different kind of journalism than they do.

Monet’s brand of journalism is rooted in facts and good reporting. She talks to everyone on all sides of the story, including the Morton County Sheriff and North Dakota’s new governor. She also has street cred … and knows how to tell a story. Just listen to her podcast — Still Here — and you will know that to be true.

So if we ever need journalism institutions to rally, it’s now. It’s not Jenni Monet who will be on trial. It’s the First Amendment. Journalism is not a crime.

2-11-17 ~ Andy Ziegler… Good evening water protectors and those everywhere who Stand w/Standing Rock. Now is not the time to be arguing about who left what at the camps, the support or nonsupport in spirit or $ from the SRST, and it is not the time to sit down and shed tears.

I hear of the “last stand” happening now and I say no…This is not the last stand, this is only the beginning. Yes they are drilling, and my heart wants it to stop, but my mind knows this snake will flow w/its poison. I have read many stories of people’s journey to SR. online, and all who I talked to at Oceti, all say the same thing–It was a calling they could not ignore, at they felt “healed” or “renewed” and even those who could not make the journey were called to engage and help as they could.

I believe our creator called us together from across the country and world like the vision of Crazy Horse, but this was not the final battle, we are meant to be the seeds. The 1st Nations has shown the world once again that standing together in peace and prayer renders a military and police force defenseless. DAPL and our Gov. think they have defeated us but they fail to realize it’s a hollow victory, as People are “STANDING” everywhere, do not think it’s over. Do not argue over trash. I will return as many times as needed-risking criminal charges if I must–to restore the area to a better cond. than before. As seeds now is the time to take root wherever we’ve returned to and continue the fight for mother Earth. Prayers to all… Mni Wiconi

The growing group of military veterans could make it harder for police and government officials to try to remove hundreds of activists who remain camped near the construction site and, some hope, could limit use of excessive force by law enforcement during demonstrations. “We are prepared to put our bodies between Native elders and a privatized military force,” said Elizabeth Williams, a 34-year-old air force veteran, who arrived at Standing Rock with a group of vets late on Friday. “We’ve stood in the face of fire before.

2-10-17 ~ Unify FEB 10th: STANDING ROCK Update: The struggle is heating up, and we need your support more than ever in the coming weeks. The campsite is growing, thousands of veterans have committed to joining in solidarity with us. And we are on site providing support to Grandmother, the Earth is called by so many here. And as she changes her clothes, shrugging off this long Winter and emerging into Spring, our work is made all the more urgent. Rising flood waters from the Missouri River will soon wash away any trash or refuse left behind by the waves of supporters, tourists and passersby who have lent their support, in myriad forms, these past many months.

Now we roll up our sleeves and do the difficult work of sorting through the thousands of donations and camping supplies which can still be repurposed to support the struggle to stop DAPL, or that may find new life in other nearby communities.

Already we have packed and delivered two shipments of clothing and non-perishable food to nearby charities and donation centers, with plans to send out our massive 28 foot trailer fully loaded two more times.

Our trucks roll through camp, excavating forgotten tents from the frozen ground, layers of ice and the all-concealing snow. Tools purchased with your contributions allow us to overcome these barriers to our success, and scrub from this sacred land every tarp, tent stake and cigarette butt we find.

But it’s not all about cleaning. Far too many elders have been left with the responsibility of breaking down their own camps, with little or no support. These have been homes for nearly a year, and are often full of yurts, large military tents, tipis and even some fully fledged houses.

Your support means direct aid on the ground as Water Protectors begin relocating to permanent eco-villages. Sacred Stone and Rosebud have no intentions of disbanding, and have secured their future on private lands directly neighboring the flood plain.

2-10-17 ~ Salina Manson… I actually saw this guy at Standing Rock. But since he wanted privacy it wasnt spoken about. I felt like he didn’t want to become a distraction. I’m sure folks will always say something critical and mean about people but I felt like he just wanted to be respectful. Wasn’t a limelight moment for him. I really respect that.

It’s all about the actions unsaid. Where no credit is needed. A million things happened at SR we all didn’t share on-line because resistance movements aren’t speaking every detail. They are too busy staying focused.
Great job Leo!

2-8-17 ~ MORTON COUNTY SHERIFF KIRCHMEIER: Today’s decision from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a step toward the closure necessary for pipeline construction. If protestors continue to take unlawful actions in response to the Corps’ decision, law enforcement will be forced to continue to put themselves in harm’s way to enforce the rule of law. Our hope is that the new administration in Washington will now provide North Dakota law enforcement the necessary resources to bring closure to the protests. This has never been about the pipeline or the protests. This has always been about the rule of law, protecting both residents and peaceful protestors from criminal elements that have significantly harmed people and property – all with very little assistance from the federal government in the last administration.

COMMISSIONER SCHULZ: The last administration in Washington decided against granting an easement to DAPL even through the career experts at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recommended approval and a federal court denied a request to stop it. And they refused to give North Dakota law enforcement the much needed resources to deal with professional protestors who have assaulted police officers, bullied residents, killed livestock, and angered the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe for treating their land with disrespect. But today’s decision from the Corps shows that this new administration will not politically meddle in a thorough review of a project that will have an enormous positive effect on the economy and public safety in our area. With professional protestors continuing to engage in criminal activities, we have new hope that we didn’t have before: an administration that will help law enforcement provide public safety for the citizens of Morton County instead of turning their backs on them.

On the morning of Feb. 1, a group of water protectors established a new camp, Last Child Camp, on higher ground west of HWY 1806, which is contested treaty land. Lakota activist and LPLP attorney Chase Iron Eyes spoke with law enforcement officials at the barricade before returning to camp, where he was later arrested and charged with “inciting a riot”—a class C felony with a max sentence of five years. This video is a recap of the day and some of the wisdom Chase had to impart about this treaty stand.

2-8-17 ~ Kat N Jamie Moore… Here ya go let’s all so this. They saying the polls we sign on fb aren’t legit electronic signatures don’t count. So please send a signed no DAPL post card to the address below on the date stated.

Lorins Lewis comment to post of Trump saying he hasn’t received any negative calls about the pipeline. On March 15th, each of us will mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him. And we, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him — and against us — means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired.

Each of us — every protester from every march, each congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.

No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day, with not a single nice thing to say.
So sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your sincerest ill-wishes can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin.

Prepare for March 15th, 2017, a day hereafter to be known as #TheIdesOfTrump

Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump ! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he’s doing. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.

Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to:

2-8-17 ~ Jordan … It is with a heavy heart that I can no longer be in Standing Rock at this time and every time I am on Facebook I see members of my NODAPL family being arrested, mistreated and wrongfully accused with false allegations and charges. For the simple act of trying to protect our Mother Earth and practice our constitutional right to assemble and speak against our government. There have been over 676 of arrests since the NODAPL movement started. Imagine peacefully protesting one minute then after being beat and brutalized by police you are suddenly facing felonies as well as 10 years to LIFE in prison?! That is the reality for most of those who have been arrested in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. For standing? For praying? For trespassing? For being a leader? The corruption in legal system in Morton County and countless lies being told by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department (MCSD) and ATF is ruining peoples lives. I may no longer be physically in Standing Rock but my heart and spirit stays with my warriors.

I know this may just be another Facebook story to many of you but for myself and so many others these people are my friends and my family. These people have children, wives, husbands; these protectors have lives. Don’t abandon those who have risked everything to protect the Earth and stand up against injustices for future generations. Spread awareness. Find out how you can help. Don’t let a corrupt system continue to go unnoticed and unaccountable.

Below is a great video by TYT Politics that will give you an idea about what is going on in regards to those being charged.

Hell, they have not yet been held accountable for the 100’s of injuries I have personally seen caused by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters and DAPL employees. Lets at least hold them accountable for being unjust in arresting our water protectors.

2-7-17 ~ Floris Ptesáŋ Huŋká… Today us ladies met with Alicia Custer, the grandniece of General George Armstrong Custer. My grandfather killed her grandfather. I know exactly what most are going to feel immediately. Still processing this among so many other things including the Army Corps granting DAPL easement to drill under Mni Sose.

She’s a mother. She brought her daughter. She’s actually a supporter of us in this fight against DAPL. She’s brought donations and wood to the camp. So she’s helped the people keep warm through this brutal winter. She takes responsibility for her grandfather and apologized. Her family has no male births and the girls are unsica. She came for forgiveness. It struck me when she said “You’re fighting for my daughter too.” It’s true. Just like we are fighting for MCSD’s children’s water, the pipeline workers water.

She doesn’t carry an honorable name. That name is synonymous with the death of women and children. We don’t carry that burden. Our ancestors fought and died defending their families, honorably. It’s their sacrifices and honor that we draw strength from.

She had some good words the pipeline workers and MCSD could use. The stains on their legacy families incur for “just following orders”.

2-6-17 ~ Water Protector Recalls Moment National Guard Took Selfies With Caged Protectors In Background
When our bus pulled in to the Morton County facility, we saw that the bus before us had already unloaded the other Water Protectors into the dog kennels and they had been stripped down to their base layer of clothing and it was freezing cold in the garage.

There were police officers and National Guards standing around casually eating pizza and joking with each other. From my window I had a view of the cage where they were holding the men. I could hear them singing and chanting #mniwiconi to keep their spirits up. It felt good to hear that, I felt connected to them even though they were outside of the bus we were on because we are all one heart, one mind and one prayer.

As we were looking out the window, someone pointed out that 2 National Guard officers were taking selfies with their personal phones with a view of the men in the cage behind them. Sure enough, there they were smiling and laughing as they posed and snapped pictures of our Water Protector brothers in cages behind them who were doing their best to hold each other’s spirits up. It was disgusting to see them take such pleasure in it.

We sat on the bus for hours and most of us had to pee so bad but our requests to use the bathroom were denied. At one point the female guard said “ok, stand up if you have to go bathroom and can’t hold it” so we all stood up. She laughed and walked off the bus. I was in the very back of the bus and a young woman who was in the seat across the aisle couldn’t hold it anymore and pee’d in her pants then jumped out of the back of the bus with zip ties still on. I assume they took her to get cleaned up but I never saw her again after that. When they had our bags labeled there was a Jane Doe bag that none of us recognized so it may have been hers.

2-6-17 ~ Marcos Ramirez … Yes, I’m here at Standing Rock … I’ve been here for over two weeks now, working through sickness (we have incredible medical support), cold , through the night. We’ve moved houses, modified heavy equipment, provided jail support, and supported the Warriors / Water Protectors in ways that I can only speak of quietly with the sponsors that have supported us…. We awoke Wednesday to the beautiful sight of 7 teepees on a hill, treaty land to the Lakota ( Sioux ) Nation. That day’s action would show the hypocrisy of the 6 month bridge blockade that was torn down within hours, and also thrust treaty rights back into the court system. Is there a special court, or justice system for whites vs Indigenous people? We shall see …..

I haven’t always had the time or energy to post, but I’m always watching, observing. Below is some of my photographs and short clips

2-6-17 ~ Dallas Goldtooth… Today during a federal court status conference, DOJ lawyers told the Judge that the Corps has forwarded a “review and analysis” to the Army leadership for a decision on the easement. They did not state what that decision was of course. They expect to announce the decision as early as friday.

Once the Army makes a decision it goes to Congress for notification. While Army policy is to wait 14 days after notification, the Presidential memo says waive that waiting period, and the DOJ did not indicate its position on this either.

The other fact that came out today under the Court’s questioning is that it would take DAPL a minimum of 83 days from the start of construction until the pipeline is fully in operation. After 60 days there could be some oil in the pipeline underneath Lake Oahe.

In layman terms. The department of army will most likely released its determination on the easement this Friday. Whereupon the tribal immediately file for an injunction.

2-6-17 ~ Ronda Hanning‎… After reading so many things these past weeks on opposing opinions, and seeing people’s frustration pouring out I feel compelled to share my thoughts.

There are many who feel victory can only be had if the DAPL is completely stopped. I too would like this outcome but do not believe we are defeated if it gets finished. I feel victory has already been achieved in many ways and that more victories will come.

Victories:
A. THE AWAKENING: The Sioux Nation awakened a staggering amount of people to not only the destruction these pipelines cause but to the injustices past and present perpetuated on them. This will continue like a domino affect until the bigger victories can be made. The only way to make sure this domino affect continues is to stay committed. To continue exposing the devastating affects of big oil and oppression of Native Americans.

B: THE UNITING: Good people, black, brown, red, yellow, white, gay, straight, catholic, muslim, baptist, wican, old, young, rich, poor, democrat, republican, german, irish, african, japanese, veterans, pacifists, teachers, students, doctors, the dieing, lawyers, the addicted and the recovering have come together. The list is endless. We all have gained insight to the others experiences, pain, joys, traditions, information, struggles and opinions. From this we are a powerful collective to right the wrongs of our past and make a better future for all.

C: THE HEALING: Individually each of us has had to confront our ignorance, our character flaws, our wrong doings, our biases, our egos, our lack of self worth, our spiritual disconnect or self-righteousness. This helps unpollute our souls so we can continue to stand for goodness.

These victories will carry us forward in truth and in light and should not be forgotten when we feel nothing has changed for the better in our efforts.

Mother Earth and our Ancestors hear and feel our vibrations connecting. They are forgiving as we go about our lessons needed to be learned but also to be taught, she is patient even as greed becomes so disconnected to their destructive ways, lessons to the watching world will be to see the level of corruption and discontent they will go to to make a dollar, no more can they hide their greed they have televised, social networked, spread their lies and their intentions for all the world to see..

As peaceful Water Protectors we are merely a vessel bought here to give and show compassion, to give love, strength and bring Unity. Our connection goes deep and we understand that respect and appreciation must be given to all things living it’s Natures Law…

2-13-17 ~ Allison Peacock … A CALL TO ARMS: STANDING ROCK NEEDS YOU
The spring thaw is just around the corner. And if the movement that made the world sit up and notice doesn’t rally back to camp, well, we should all be ashamed.

A small group of very dedicated volunteers and a few paid contractors who come by to haul things away are doing the work of thousands. At times heavy equipment arrives to scoop up snow into large piles and clear the way for movement around camp to remove trash and debris.

The amount of debris a few people are trying to sort through is overwhelming to behold.

Some say it’s hard to imagine how ten thousand people who love the earth and the water so much would leave behind this kind of tonnage in waste. Yet no one can outwit a blizzard.

When people around the world heard the call, they came. And if they couldn’t come, they sent clothing. They sent sleeping bags. They sent food.

And then, on December 5, a massive blizzard hit the Cannonball area. I can personally attest to the fierceness of the white out conditions. I was stuck in a casino nearby unable to drive for several days until the state gave the all clear on the roads. By that time tents full of donations and provisions had been buried. Well-meaning campers, thinking they were providing for the next person who came along, left tents, food, and gear.

It is the Standing Rock way. Share what you have with your neighbor and we’ll all be just fine.

It’s hard to imagine how so much actual trash made it onto the ground as well. We all tried so hard to be self-contained and live light on the earth while in camp. I personally carried my every scrap of food wrapper and used Kleenex out of camp with me in my own trash bag. I carried my orange peels to the community compost. Yet there are thousands of bags of trash left behind anyway.

Somehow in all of the massive outpouring of humanity, we all weren’t as thoughtful as we could have been.

I personally picked up three bags full today between shuttling media and documenting stories. I realized my first day back that I would have to keep a trash bag in my pocket and pick things up as I walk to the compost toilets or to interview a crew organizer. It would hurt my soul not to bend over and pick up the old batteries or crushed carton of eggs when I pass by – screws in my back or not. It’s a start.

Now if only 200 more people would come and do the same.

Camp Oceti needs us. Teams of people are needed to clean up and clean up hard. Rally your football teams, fraternities, Boy Scout troops, youth groups, and VFW groups.

Where are the veterans who raised $1 million to come to camp for four days? I saw none today cleaning up. I hope they’re here. I hope they’re picking up trash as I did today.

Mother Earth deserves it. We can’t become the great irony of the water protection movement. Please come. Bring your work gloves. Bring your trash bags. Just come.

Tomorrow I’ll post instructions on how you can help clean up our beloved Camp Oceti.

2-13-17 ~ These 10 Quotes From an Oglala Lakota Chief Will Make You Question Everything About Our Society
Luther Standing Bear was an Oglala Lakota Sioux Chief who, among a few rare others such as Charles Eastman, Black Elk and Gertrude Bonnin occupied the rift between the way of life of the Indigenous people of the Great Plains before, and during, the arrival and subsequent spread of the European pioneers. Raised in the traditions of his people until the age of eleven, he was then educated at the Carlisle Indian Industrial Boarding School of Pennsylvania, where he learned the English language and way of life. (Though a National Historical Landmark, Carlisle remains a place of controversy in Native circles.) Continue Reading

2-5-17 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi… LaDonna Allard, Standing Rock and No DAPL
I read LaDonna Allard’s post a couple of hours ago, but needed to wait and comment after letting her words sink in. Now I will comment since LaDonna is one of those people who has become so much more than just LaDonna. This has happened not through ego or intention, but because of the leadership and spirit she has shown.

When friends asked me to begin a Facebook support page for the Standing Rock Protestors in August I knew little of what was going on – and little of Standing Rock. The Black Hills – Pine Ridge – yes, but Standing Rock and North Dakota – no. I was busy running our educational non-profit, Sanctuaries of the Earth Mother, with Sue, my wife and did not need more work. But, after three calls and requests I agreed to do it. As we talked on the phone we spoke of how the people beginning to mass at Standing Rock were Protectors. So the group name of Standing Rock Protectors – Pipeline Protestors was used.

The group grew quickly and we were 30,000 strong by September. In October Sue and I headed to Standing Rock and Sacred Stone Camp. So, that is the beginning of the virtual support and how I came to meet LaDonna. After we were at Sacred Stone 5 days or so we walked back to our little RV one evening and saw LaDonna and her husband sitting by one of the fires. We went over and we all began to speak. I have written about this before and will post that again another day. This is about LaDonna and the Protectors. I was immediately impressed by her strength and commitment. And by her words. She spoke of the young ones who had come to her about the pipeline. And mentioned her son. We spoke of the pipeline and the sacred ground. She shared how that camp was on her land and she would fight to keep it there. Her husband spoke of LaDonna’s long time commitment to her families land and untiring work at stopping the pipeline now.

I told her of the virtual group supporting her and the main camp and how many people were already in it. She said that piece was critical and wanted us to do whatever it took to tell more people, spread the word and tell them why the pipeline was bad for Standing Rock and all people along the rivers fed by the Missouri. We told her we would do all in our power. And we would try to help with donations and materials. Then we spoke of re-routing the pipeline and she was the first who said to me this was about stopping, not re-routing, the pipeline. Under the river was bad, no matter where it was done. She gave us permission to film and record those willing and we got press passes and did so for a week.

Since that time our group has followed LaDonna’s work and all the camps at Standing Rock. And promoted and educated. And watched groups appear around the world. Now with over 134,000 in this group we continue the work Standing Rock – and LaDonna and all the elders began. They are the heroes. And they have won SO much that has captivated and amazed people around the world.

Some of the things LaDonna told me were: 1) this had to be and remain a peaceful protest and 2) have the people send prayers – lots of prayers and 3) talk about all people working together.

Other elders told me similar things as LaDonna, but Sue and I heard her words first and with our hearts. This we have done and will continue. The Standing Rock protest is not over – the venue changes now. But the successes and wins do amaze me. The biggest, most incredible success of these camps is that everyone there was working together – shoulder-to-shoulder. We worked with red, white, black and yellow… old and young… male and female… citizens of the U.S. and many other countries. And I watched Native American friends from tribes long considered enemies embracing. This is truly the prophecy of the four colors coming together and sharing their wisdom playing out. When Sue and I went to camp meetings we heard LaDonna also speak to this.

For months now we in our virtual group have spoken of Water is Life the Movement and how that must be the next evolution of this water protection work. I have long said Standing Rock or any individual protest will eventually be decided – win or lose. And that ends the issue. But a united movement for clean water around the world goes on and on – each protest connected to all the others. A tsunami of clean water demands that cannot be stopped. Now I see that is also the best way to honor LaDonna and all the camps and protectors of Standing Rock – carry on the Water is Life Movement with the same fervor as is being shown at Standing Rock… and Flint… and Florida… and Texas… and everywhere.

The Red Nations began Standing Rock and welcomed in the White, Black and Yellow. Other protests were first led by the Black Nation or White or Yellow. Together, being colorblind now, we move ahead.

Lately there have been some dark comments – some divisive ‘one color only’ comments – some ridicule – some hate talk. Those doing this have no understanding at all of what Standing Rock is about. The majority in the movement know we must be all one and welcome and share with ALL people – regardless of their color or race. That is the current huge legacy of Standing Rock.

Thank you LaDonna. Thank you Protectors.

It is unclear why the BIA were called to the house. It is possible the owner complained about the mutually shared driveway was being blocked. However, it seems strange that 6 BIA vehicles and countless BIA police were necessary to answer a call that could have been handled by one car, one man.

2-5-17 ~ Oceti Sakowin Camp… Kinetic impact projectiles (KIPs) | Less Than Lethal Weapons on US Civilians

**Name ONE of these injuries that Water Protectors have NOT sustained at Standing Rock. Where else are these happening in the United States?**

“EYES
Direct trauma to the eye from KIPs nearly always causes total blindness in that eye, due to rupture of the globe (eyeball) as well as trauma to nearby structures. KIPs can also penetrate through the eye socket and enter the brain, causing brain injury.

CARDIORESPIRATORY SYSTEM
KIPs can cause bruising of the lungs or heart, and penetration into the chest may cause serious, possibly fatal injuries such as bleeding, pneumothorax, and heart attacks.

SKELETAL SYSTEM
Injuries to the muscles and bones may cause sprains, bruises, and fractures. Deeper injuries can cause permanent damage to the neurovascular structures, leading to amputations or compartment syndrome.

BRAIN
Blunt trauma to the brain can cause concussions and bruising inside the brain (contusions) as well as different types of bleeding in the brain (intracranial hemorrhage) and skull fractures. KIPs have also been known to penetrate the skull or enter the brain tissue, causing hemorrhage, injury to the spinal cord, and severe brain injury from the foreign body.

HEAD and NECK
The delicate structures of the face and neck are particularly vulnerable to traumatic injury. The bones of the face and skull, the spinal cord, and the blood vessels in the neck are all close to the skin surface.

ABDOMINAL
Blunt injuries can cause bleeding in the solid organs such as the liver, kidney, and spleen; penetrative injuries can also cause bleeding, perforations, and urogenital injuries.

SKIN and SOFT TISSUE
KIPs can cause bruising and contusions of the skin and soft tissue, as well as superficial and deep lacerations, some of which may cause muscle or nerve damage as well as bleeding.”
**Where else in the United States are we seeing injuries like these, delivered by Law Enforcement to control crowds of peaceful protesters?**

2-4-17 ~ TO SAVE THE WATER, WE MUST BREAK THE CYCLE OF COLONIAL TRAUMA… Ladonna Bravebull Allard says, “This movement was started by the people, and led by our youth. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s decision to negotiate with the State and disown the people who came to fight for our water is risking more than they understand. We have had many thousands of people ready to stand together in front of those machines. The Indigenous nations of Turtle Island had united as never before. But as division grows, it is very difficult to see a path forward. We have no choice but to break the cycle of trauma so our future generations can have a better life.” Continue Reading

2-4-17 ~ Luba Williams… Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault has been criticized for things he recently said. Without getting into specifics the Chairman indicated perhaps the battle is not best fought in person. There were other comments made about water and the pipeline which seemed unusual and odd, not very supportive of the Water Is Life movement.

At first you may be in shock when you hear these words. But if you look at the mans face his posture the tone of his voice and facial expressions he does not believe what he is saying. To me he looked like an emotional blackmailed hostage. Forced to say things he did not want to say. I cannot say if this is true nor why and by whom, but that is just my personal opinion. So he will now take heat from both sides and be surrounded by negative energy. When in fact I think this is the time perhaps some positive prayerful energy needs to surround him, his family and every single person involved directly or indirectly at Standing Rock camps. Remember he is not the enemy and he is not the one wanting to build this pipeline. But he is the focus of speculation and the one that the powers who make decisions in this country will focus their sites on. That is not an easy position to be in.

We are living in a time where money is very powerful and people and companies have power to do very sinister things. There are concerns about poisoning of people with rodent killing chemicals at Standing Rock. Imagine if that’s just the start. What else could the sinister do?

What else and how else could people be affected. The pipeline is dangerous, but what else is also ? We know the pipeline may eventually leak. But we also know that direct deliberate actions may be more dangerous right now. What is the solution, I don’t know. Yet I strongly believe we need to be thoughtful of our words and intentions and how we feel about others right now.

2-4-17 ~ Oceti Sakowin Camp… Kinetic impact projectiles (KIPs) | Less Than Lethal Weapons on US Civilians

Though the law enforcement agents used no weapons on the Water Protectors during the Last Child Camp raid on February 1, they were fully armed with them. At close range, rifles like these were trained on the assembled people gathered, all of whom have no reason to begin trusting that this sort of unregulated weaponry won’t be used.

Why must military-grade weapons be used to manage a peaceful assembly of people, a First Amendment Right? How does this ongoing show of force protect and serve anyone?

“KIPs are commonly known as rubber and plastic bullets, are used for crowd-control purposes by law enforcement worldwide in multiple forms and are shot from myriad types of guns and launchers. The findings of a systematic review of medical literature carried out by Physicians for Human Rights indicate that KIPs cause serious injury, disability, and death. KIPs are inherently inaccurate when fired from afar and therefore can cause unintended injuries to bystanders and strike vulnerable body parts; at close range, they are likely to be lethal. Therefore, KIPs are not an appropriate weapon to be used for crowd management and specifically for dispersal purposes.

HEALTH EFFECTS
KIPs can cause blunt or penetrative trauma. Penetrative injuries are those that pierce the skin or soft tissue. Blunt injuries are those that cause internal damage without breaking the skin barrier.”

Keep in mind when they announced victory on Dec 4th with all the world watching nearly 8000 people disappeared over night. Also there were many supplies that were bought with donation money so those who used it likely did not think it was theirs to take.

2-4-17 ~ Joshua Smith… With great reluctance I wanted to throw some actions out into the public, and honestly they might give some firepower to those against the Standing Rock Movement. There are many rumors of Financial Malfeasance by David Archambault and other members of the Tribal Council but I will stick to the ones which there is verifiable evidence for. It appears as though SRST Tribal Council and Chairman David Archambault may have MISAPPROPRIATED the $6.5 million in donations, and are now working with the federal government to crush the grassroots movement of those still there opposed to the pipeline.

The stench of malfeasance doesn’t smell any better just because it emanates from an ally. In some sense, I do have to say they are still on the forefront of the legal battle challenging DAPL in court.

Lateral Violence is when two different factions within a given movement criticize the other in a manner which creates division and also provide those opposed to the movement reasoning to criticize us. That being said I believe it is incumbent upon any movement to not close ranks and hide facts. In the spirit of that I’m urging individuals who support the Water Protectors and are part of the NoDAPL movement to consider the following actions and if you find it appropriate either withdraw your support and/or demand accountability from Dave Archambault and the Standing Rock Tribal Council.

I want you to consider their actions in the last few months. I also want you to consider throwing all your support behind Sacred Stone Camp, LaDonna Allard and Chase Iron Eyes. Understand that within any movement there is not one voice, but many voices and groups. I would like to point out that the SRST Chairman and Tribal cCouncil are but a small portion and have been allied, but have not been Leaders of the Camp Movement. Also remember, they are a political organization. Early on they made huge appeals for people to come to Standing Rock, and we did. Since mid-December, they have taken numerous actions that I believe are extremely questionable, which have been widely reported in the media but also documented as they were discussed and voted on in public council sessions. It appears they have misappropriated the money donated to them and at this time are trying to evict those that came to stand in solidarity with the NoDAPL Movement.

They are making numerous statements implying that this movement is led by themselves and are now portraying themselves as the only legitimate Water Protectors and calling Sacred Stone and the other people camped out as rogue factions. I can only surmise that perhaps they are trying to co-opt the movement in an attempt to silence the movement.

THIS WAS A YOUTH MOVEMENT WHICH STARTED BY & YOUTH’S CAMPED OUT ON LADONNA ALLARD’S PRIVATE PROPERTY. It was NOT organized or requested by the Tribal Government.

Last count IIRC they have accepted more than $6.5 million dollars in donations and while they have provided some support financially to the camps, purportedly they also voted to Use a large chunk of this money to pay Debt which Pre-existed the movement. This was adopted by a recorded council resolution and once again reported by the independent media. Call SRST Council and demand accountability for where they spent your money if you donated.

Also In December, after they called for the Water Protectors to go home, It was found that an entire warehouse owned by the tribe was filled with months full of Mail as well as monetary and purchased items addressed to both individual water protectors but also Sacred stone Camp (a separate entity) had been stockpiled and not delivered to whom they were addressed. The Council Asserts this was an administrative Error. Given the totality of their actions I question this.

Cody Two Bears, a council member has been very vocal and has also publicly advocated now that the federal government and federal law enforcement assist them in clearing the camps. One such camp, Sacred Stone, is purportedly on private ground owned by Ladonna Allard. In the Past SRST has made numerous statements supporting that this Camp is a safe camp because it is on Ladonna’s private ground.

In a stunning reversal they requested Federal Law enforcement and BIA officials, along with ATF and ACOE enter her private property without a warrant yesterday for an “Assessment.” They are now claiming that the tribe not Miss Allard has majority ownership of the property. I would challenge this claim, based on their previous statements.

I would urge you to call the tribal Government to:
Demand an accounting of your money.
Express your opinion of their actions.
Ask them about their recent collaboration with Federal officials.

Ladonna Allard and Chase Iron Eyes are still on the ground still standing up against the DAPL Movement and I believe these actions of protest have ensured our success thus far. Consider withdrawing your support from the SRST tribal Council and Dave Archambault, and support those still on the ground, still standing up for the water.

2-4-17 STANDING ROCK Update:
Greetings from Standing Rock, where the struggle to bring compassion and awareness into the thoughts and minds of all peoples in all parts of the world continues. We are here on the ground, partnering with local organizers, native communities and you, the generous supporters of our continued efforts to restore the land to the pristine state in which we found her.

Grandmother, the Earth is called by so many here. And as she changes her clothes, shrugging off this long Winter and emerging into Spring, our work is made all the more urgent. Rising flood waters from the Missouri River will soon wash away any trash or refuse left behind by the waves of supporters, tourists and passersby who have lent their support, in myriad forms, these past many months.

Now we roll up our sleeves and do the difficult work of sorting through the thousands of donations and camping supplies which can still be repurposed to support the struggle to stop DAPL, or that may find new life in other nearby communities.

Already we have packed and delivered two shipments of clothing and non-perishable food to nearby charities and donation centers, with plans to send out our massive 28 foot trailer fully loaded two more times.
Our trucks roll through camp, excavating forgotten tents from the frozen ground, layers of ice and the all-concealing snow. Tools purchased with your contributions allow us to overcome these barriers to our success, and scrub from this sacred land every tarp, tent stake and cigarette butt we find.

But it’s not all about cleaning. Far too many elders have been left with the responsibility of breaking down their own camps, with little or no support. These have been homes for nearly a year, and are often full of yurts, large military tents, tipis and even some fully fledged houses. Unify identifies those members of the Standing Rock community who are being forgotten and we help.

You help. We could never do it without you. From the beginning, the movement against DAPL and to protect this water has relied on the aid of those whose support came from afar. We have rallied together each according to their ability. Each piece of this movement is sacred, as each cell in the body amounts to more than the sum of its parts. And now, more than ever, it is imperative we stay together.
Though the pipeline bores on, its infamy now burnished by the support of a new Presidency, the last impact of Standing Rock remains to be seen. Will we allow this movement to come stuttering to a halt, or can we find a way to fuel this new community in a responsible, sustainable manner?

Your support means direct aid on the ground as Water Protectors begin relocating to permanent ecovillages. Sacred Stone and Rosebud have no intentions of disbanding, and have secured their future on private lands directly neighboring the flood plain.

Unify will be here, sorting recycling, restoring the land and helping Grandmother wherever we can and in whomever we see her twinkling eye. Nothing in the future is certain, but we are certain not to abandon this place, not now when Standing Rock needs us the most, not ever.

Please join us in preserving and protecting this most magical of moments, and breathing new life into the most important movement in generations.

2-4-17 ~ ‎Joshua Taflinger… We have been in camp all week collecting information face to face directly from camp coordinators and leaders in Oceti Oyate, Rosebud, and the new Black Hoop Camp. **(Didn’t spend time in Sacred Stone, so can’t report facts on that one. Check out live feeds for those updates)

All camps agree that Dave Archambault and the SRST are corrupt politicians that have been bought and have bailed on the people that THEY called out to stand and help protect the water, land, and sacred sites.

The Army Corps announced an eviction notice to Oceti Oyate(main camp) and the sections of Rosebud that the Army Corps has illegally (based on the treaties) claimed for February 22nd. Many are cleaning up, packing up, and heading out.

Many Water Protectors are dedicated to stay and stand and are praying for you, Veterans, anyone to stand and resist with us on the 22nd!

The numbers in camp are dwindling and with these declining numbers, when police raid on the 22nd, they will have no problem clearing out the resistance. We cannot quit now. If we give them this victory they will just keep taking more and more until there is nothing left to stand for.

Now more than ever, people are being called to camp. It would logistically be much more difficult/improbable for police to clear out camp if there were 1,000’s present on the 22nd.
Come prepared to resist and potentially be arrested. If you don’t come, this will be over!

Rosebud camp is focused on major clean up efforts as well as working out logistics to move their camp up the hill to higher ground to the new Blackhoop Memorial Camp.
This will be an invitation camp. People will be vetted to make sure there are as few “agitators”.
This will be a peaceful prayer camp.

All camps, especially Rosebud, need help cleaning up the grounds to prevent the debris from getting washed into the river if flooding occurs. Please go NOW!! You are NEEDED and encouraged to help with clean up efforts if possible. Many hands make light work.

And this is directly from those who are committed to staying and resisting DAPL. There is a call for the VETERANS to begin arriving before the 22nd, set up, and dig in and prepare. If you do not come in large numbers, the camp will be crushed and cleared out.

Face your fears! Get in your car and get your butt to Standing Rock!! This is our last chance to STAND and kill this Black Snake! We need you!

2-3-17 ~ Andrew Alexis Varvel… “I think Chase Iron Eyes set a trap for the Morton County Sheriff and Dakota Access LLC and they fell in. Firstly, Sheriff Kirchmeier had been claiming that the Backwater Bridge needed to be closed down because it needed repairs – his very use of that bridge exposes Morton County’s blockade of that bridge as entirely punitive in nature. Secondly, Chase Iron Eyes now has a clearcut case testing his rights as a member of Oceti Sakowin to press territorial claims under the Fort Laramie Treaty. Thirdly, his arrest exposes the flimsy nature of Dakota Access LLC’s claim to own (and at that, temporarily own until the end of this year!) the Cannonball Ranch – the Attorney General had to twist North Dakota’s farming law into a pretzel (in defiance of over three-fourths of the electorate as expressed in last June’s referendum!) to accept Dakota Access LLC’s justification that it needed to use the property as a security perimeter around its state-granted easement. Fourthly, Chase Iron Eyes has now become a political prisoner, which helps bring more publicity for the cause. Fifthly, his arrest can show the outside world how morally corrupt the local news media’s demonization of him has really become.

Chase Iron Eyes is a lot smarter than his opponents give him credit for. I would not underestimate him.”

1-30-17 ~ The Trump presidency and the United States’ First Nations are on a collision course brought about purely by Trump’s racism and hatred of anyone who gets in his way.

After Trump took power, the White House website was changed and its Native American page was taken down. The pages for civil rights, people with disabilities and climate change also disappeared. In their place was a biography of Melania Trump.

Earlier, Obama renamed Mount McKinley in Alaska to Mount Denali, which is the Native American name for the mountain. This incensed Trump, who vowed that when he became president he would return the name Mount McKinley to the country’s highest mountain. This is a small matter, but it illustrates Trump’s temperament and micromanagement approach.

The Trump government is quickly proving that it’s no fan of Native Americans, and Trump’s negative relations with Native Americans goes way back.

In the 1990s, when Native American casinos were expanding, they began to cut into his gambling profits. He began a fake news campaign that Native American casinos were run by the mafia and career criminals. He even stated that some tribes were faking their ancestry.

Meanwhile, Trump tried to strike a management deal with the Agua Caliente Band in Palm Springs; they turned him down, further inflaming his bruised ego.

In 2000, the St Regis Mohawk tribe at Akwesasne planned a casino, and a series of ads came out in local newspapers with pictures of hypodermic needles and lines of coke. The caption read, “Are these the kind of neighbours you want?” The ads were sponsored by an organization called the New York State Institute for Law and Society. As it turned out, Donald Trump was the principal funder.
The repeal of the Affordable Care Act, also called ObamaCare, will have a serious effect on Native American tribes. When the act was passed it included the Indian Health Care Act and a funding stream was established to fund Indian health care. Since ObamaCare is about to be repealed, no allowance has been made for Native American health care.

Like Canada, health care is promised in many of the treaties in the United States, but their implementation is spotty.
This brings us to the Dakota Access Pipeline, which has been under attack by the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. President Obama refused to grant a licence to tunnel under the river, instead calling upon the Army Corps of Engineers to find an alternate route. The Republican state governor, along with the Republican representatives, were all in favour of pushing ahead. North Dakota state Senator John Hoven (Republican) has been elected chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. Hoven has been an outspoken opponent of the action taken by the Standing Rock tribe.

Standing Rock faces a perfect storm of law makers from the president on down who have no qualms about crushing opposition to the pipeline.
Trump signed a presidential memorandum calling for the re-authorization of the Dakota Access Pipeline in spite of the fact that the Army Corps of Engineers had denied Energy Transfer Partners, the pipeline owner, an easement to tunnel under the Missouri River at Standing Rock. The Army Corps is currently studying alternate routes for the pipeline.

The question is, can the environmental process be rescinded by a presidential memorandum?

The Dakota Access Pipeline has become the line in the sand where America’s next Indian war will be fought; the new battlefield will be the courtroom. The Standing Rock tribe has stated that they will take the government to court and tie them up for years.

The tribe can move forward on three fronts: first, they have the moral authority to protect their land and water; second, they have the legal authority based on their treaties; third, they have the political authority based on a nation to nation relationship with the United States, and unilateral action by one party cannot be allowed.

It’s becoming obvious that Trump has little regard or knowledge of process and the role of government. Governments are not there to be run like a corporation, but have checks and balances and due process. It’s a lesson the Standing Rock Sioux Nation is about to teach him.

MORE LIES
1-30-17 ~ Who is Coming Into Camp?
This morning, everyone in camp is seeking clear answers.
This morning, we NEED to know what is going to be happening in the next couple of days.

This is a statement from the people who plan to bring heavy machinery into camp. There WILL NOT be a raid. We were assured multiple times last night at Prairie Knights Casino by several government representatives including the Executive Director of Indian Affairs from North Dakota, and the Brownfield Coordinator from Standing Rock Sioux Tribe EPA.

This conversation happened in the presence of the Communications Director from the Governor’s Office, General Al Dohrmann, the North Dakota Commander of the National Guard, the Director of Emergency Services, someone from the State Health Department, the Department of Transportation, and the Army Corps of Engineers, the BIA and Morton County. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) from Thunder Valley and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will be sending volunteers to help as well.

What is not clear is the timeline, but we should be prepared, and representatives from camp were also present to emphasize what our priorities are in terms of:
Protecting the Water by making sure the camp site is clear, so that nothing washes into the river with the floods we are expecting.
2. Keeping everyone in camp safe, with careful attention paid to the perpetual stress and pressure everyone has been exposed to.
3. Doing all we can to avoid a violent or armed conflict.
4. Assuring all Law Enforcement and State Agencies that people in camp have worked very hard to develop an efficient plan in line with public safety and environmental health.

Water Protectors have been here and offered to help us with this large task are standing strong together, ready to come help with camp clean up and with moving those who want to stay to higher ground.

Leaders from Rosebud/Sicangu Camp, Oceti Sakowin Camp, Tribal Elders, the Medics and Healer’s Council, Cannon Ball community, and Water Protectors were there to talk with the Tribal, State and Law Enforcement Agencies. Concerns for the community relationships of Standing Rock and neighboring cities and towns were discussed at length. We need to leave this sacred ground better than we found it, environmentally, physically, emotionally and with special regard to racial tensions.

1-29-17 ~ Standing Rock Update… We are told that the 1806 blockade is going to be removed. DAPL side is to back off the bridge and the parts of Turtle Island we can see so as not to be such an agitating presence. They say they will remove weapons from their side. Given the current administration, many are dubious about this news. The tribal council says they will not be sending in people to remove us but still ask us to leave by the 30th. We wonder if ACOE is about to give jurisdiction to Morton County to come in and remove us. Some assume the tribal council may be privy to a move of such sort and as such think the 30th leave date is a warning. I stay as far away from speculation as possible while remaining aware of my surroundings. We continue to question and denounce Trump’s decisions. My phone seems to be taking screenshots by itself. Things are ever changing. Media has been around the last several days but we have a hard time finding what is being said about camp because of connectivity issues. We send our love to all supporters (and non supporters) and our families and appreciate the sacrifice our families make having us out here.
Many people are making a call for more protectors to come.

1-28-17 ~ Oceti Sakowin Camp, The Horn
January 28th, 2016
Local Leadership comes to decision, Oceti Sakowin Headsmen meet with ND Governor.
Cannon Ball River, ND – After days of deliberation between the North Dakota Governor’s office, the Oceti Sakowin Headsmen Council and numerous Tribal Reps – the state will begin taking apart the backwater bridge barricade. Removing razor wire, and some of the concrete. They have also agreed to pull back the visible amount of the Nat’l Guard on the hills overlooking camp. The Governor’s office has also stated that they will encourage law enforcement near the backwater bridge to not have any weapons (lethal or non-lethal) on their person during this desecalation.

So we, the Headsmen Council, are asking everyone respect this process and let them remove the barricade in order to ensure the task is managed safely.

This was NOT a negotiated agreement between our parties. The Governor, based on demands given by Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Headsmen Council, decided to take the aforementioned steps of his own volition with only the verbal commiment by our party to tell the camps of the Governor’s plans.

Monday January 30, 2016
We will begin the process of cleaning up discarded and abandoned camp sites and unneeded trash and/or supplies. We will have volunteers bringing heavy machinery, dump trucks, drop boxes and bobcats to help.

Meanwhile, we have a call out for allies and people across the country to stand up where they are, and enact mass civil disobedience as a showing of solidarity for Standing Rock. The fire of the Oceti Sakowin has been taken by 10,000 potential organizers from across Turtle Island, people who have been trained in Nonviolent direct action and we need you to hit the ground immediately to help educate others and further this movement.

We continue to be thankful and encourage all to stand strong and take courage.

Lila Wopila,
Oceti Sakowin Camp Leadership

1-25-17 Laurie Frenette… I have been holding off on doing a post about my experience at the Women’s March on Washington until I had time to process a lot of the emotions surrounding it. I want to make clear that anything I do express is simply my opinion and my opinion only – not fact. This is also going to be somewhat stream of consciousness, so if you’re going to jump on my sentence structure or grammar, you may want to just move along. By the same token, this is probably going to be too long for any of you to really want to read, so again, move along.

Personally, I had some real concerns about some of the things about the march to the point of which I was unsure about going. There were things that I felt that were being expressed and done that the media and those opposing the march could grasp onto and focus on instead of trying to report or understand what the march was actually about. Unfortunately, that has proven to be true to a degree, but overall my experience with the march and the people I interacted with was positive and I truly believe that this is just the beginning of women around the world taking a stand and letting this administration know that we are not easily dismissed and that we will be watching the actions of those that represent us.(Yes, that was a run on sentence. Move along English teachers, move along!)

Any of you that know me know that the events that I have seen happen at Standing Rock have shaken me to the core. I am ashamed that it took me so long to become informed on this issue and to try to become involved in some small way. What indigenous people understand is that we are not separate from the planet we live on – we are not here to rule it, we are here to take care of it. If we continue to rape the earth, pollute our water and air and drive animals into extinction we are destroying our very future – the future of our children and grandchildren.

I have watched as militarized forces have attacked Native Americans and their allies with unnecessary force and brutality and then lied about what they did even when confronted with video and photographic evidence. I watched the live stream videos from the Backwater Bridge on November 20th, with tears rolling down my face and a strangled scream in my throat. I finally realized just how corrupt our government has become and how civil rights are cast aside as they were nothing when it benefits the powers that be. I lost complete and total faith in a president that brought that allowed that violence to come about by saying “Let’s let this play out” in the weeks before instead of being a true and just leader and stepping in to take action that could have avoided innocent people being severely injured.

I marched on Washington because of the Water Protectors and the young warriors at Standing Rock. I marched on Washington because American citizens should not be subject to such a blatant disregard of civil rights. I marched on Washington because I have finally gained at least some small understanding of white privilege. I marched on Washington because no man should have the right to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her own body. I marched to ease my own damn feelings of guilt for being so naive and so complacent for so damn long. I did not march to protest Trump being elected president, I marched because the whole freaking system is generally fucked and we are quickly moving towards to destroying ourselves. So hate away haters, and I will take a lesson learned from the good people of Standing Rock – I will pray for you and for your children.

Kristeen Irigoyen-Hernandez… The March for Women sham was originally planned by the Democratic Party to celebrate Clinton’s victory but didn’t pan out so they went with an anti-Trump rally instead. The obvious first question should have been: why a communal march in the streets as a form of protest?

Female activists succumbed to one of the most enduring myths of contemporary American protests: the comforting belief; “if you can get enough people in the streets from diverse demographics, unified behind a message, the powers that be will be forced to cave in to the crowd’s wishes”.

The Women’s March was destined to be ineffective because there was never any message, no organizational agenda, no set goal for the protest other than “I’m woman hear me roar”; There was no clear path from marching about reproductive rights, equal pay, affordable health care, clean water or anything of value to march toward. No one bothered to ask “What was supposed to come afterward?”

With no specific goals or objectives other than meeting their personal psychological need for love and belonging, this event was nothing more than an amusing communal coffee klatch to build self-esteem; a feel good pretentiousness of festooned (primarily) White women in knitted pink pussy hats (did these snowflakes not realize not everyone’s genitalia is pink), women costumed in cartoon female pudenda, not even caring if they don’t actually know where their vagina’s are, their faces depicting vaginal orifices with faux (I hope) menstrual blood waste smeared across their cheeks simulating war paint.

These females were a laughingstock; by mocking their own bodies they demeaned and reduced themselves to tragic vaudevillian caricatures, focused solely on summarizing women as body parts rather than emulating the efforts of historically consciousness-raising women who made a positive healing impact on equality. Instead these cosmic yahoo’s over shadowed those who came to embrace the women’s liberation movement i.e. Feminist Movement with power; not a pity party of victimization.

The Women’s March comedic extravaganza was merely a show of shriveled jellybean feelings plunging them into a psychological coma of mass therapy, a seductive substitute for action countering Trump’s butt hurt tantrum. The only awareness raised from this ridiculous embarrassment to all women only gave more comedic fodder to the media “Isn’t that cute, women are such amusing little creatures. Now go sit down so we can get back to business.”

The Women’s March was nothing more than a social experience; crowds of people mutually experiencing a feel good moment and allowing themselves to erroneously conclude they’d actually accomplished something profound; forever forging togetherness as elite members of an enlightened and cohesive community, but ultimately the only thing they managed to prove was a bunch of vulgarly dressed gaggling women holding up signs could get together and gather a bigger crowd than attended Trump’s Inauguration.

1-26-17 ~ You may have known that the Indian Treaties of 1851 and 1868 declare the Standing Rock Reservation to be much bigger than it is today, including encompassing land that the Dakota Access Pipeline is being illegally built on. But there is a clause you might not have heard about. That clause allows Natives to take up arms and ARREST “Bad men among the whites” who violate the treaty,

The “Bad Men” clause of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty provides: “If bad men among the whites, or among other people subject to the authority of the United States, shall commit any wrong upon the person or property of the Indians, the United States will, upon proof made to the agent and forwarded to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs at Washington City, proceed at once to cause the offender to be arrested and punished according to the laws of the United States, and also reimburse the injured person for the loss sustained.”

This means that the “Bad Men Among the whites” using police brutality, stealing land, breaking these treaties all in the pursuit of their imagined profit can be arrested by armed Native Americans.

This is not a call to take up arms, it is a call to educate yourself about the rights that have been promised to you by these treaties.

Remember, the U.S. Constitution itself says that treaties supersede later laws. That means no matter what land the government later annexed from Standing Rock, that is STILL Native Land legally and constitutionally!

1-26-17 ~ MICHAEL J. SAINATO… Ed Blackcloud was the lone dissenter at the council meeting, criticizing the council’s actions, insisting it was wrong to force the protesters to go home. The founder of the original protest camp, Sacred Stone Camp at Standing Rock, LaDonna Tamakawestewin Allard, refused to attend the council meeting and has said she does not intend to close down her camp, which lies on her own private land. Allard formed a 510c3 with plans to build a permanent green energy camp at the site.

In addition to this recent bad news on two different fronts for water protectors against the Dakota Access Pipeline, an EPA investigation found that 40,000 pounds of rat poison were illegally distributed on ranches very close to the Standing Rock camps. The Save the Buffalo Nation issued a press release advising Standing Rock water protectors they may have bene unknowingly exposed to the rat poison chemicals;“many people have come back from the camps reporting symptoms and illnesses of what is referred to as the “DAPL” cough, bloody noses, fatigue and some people have reported to have coughing up blood.” Continue Reading

1-26-17 ~ Olowaan Plain… I just want to say that water protectors wearing protective gear is NOT an act of aggression it is an act of protection for our lives.. We don’t want to get shot but as we all know Morton County Sheriff’s Department does shoot us.. Rubber bullets are real bullets as told to us by the representative from the UN Council on human rights violations.. We all know that those bullets go through clothing and skin.. We want to live!! We want to be able to go home to our families.. I love you all.. Please be safe!

1-26-17 ~ Steven Jeffrey Chrisjohn… Remember camp is NOT CLOSED. WE ARE UNDER THREAT OF EVICTION. BUT HAS NOT PASSED NOR IS GRANTED (YET) or how they will proceed. This land we are on is Treaty Land. It is part of many tribes Land that was promised via TREATY long ago. So many people are still here. There is still room. They are saying eminently the water flood will come. (Me not so sure) nor do a lot of relatives know either. But will become muddy and ucky if does attempt to flood. So. Camp is still open. You are welcome to join.

But remember. We are under threat of Standing Rock installing BIA official cops roadblocks (rumor) and they asked Morton or somebody to aide them in removal of the Camps.

Also, new camps are being established as we speak. Be patient as we know more. You know more. But as of right now this day. CAMP IS OPEN

Guess this is a rumor disclaimer lol. Safe travels and prayers to all

Actions ,that go on, are Purely prayer. Those disregarding these rules will be asked to Leave. This is a responsible community and we have a task at representing ourselves as the water protectors full of strength and determination to protect the land.

She is an amazing woman and athlete, and an inspiration to women everywhere.

1-25-17 ~ Jim Fergie Chambers… Yesterday DAPL dipped in and out of our campgrounds with snowmobiles all day, and began posing as camp security on radios to lure people out to certain locations, in one instance promising “hot frybread and food for anyone who can come meet at the bridge.”

Over the evening, we heard reports of trucks creating road barricades by semi-solitary encampments, and then two more arrests on turtle island. In that case, those arrested also had their windows shot out by DAPL.

Notice I don’t usually specify troopers, sheriff, DAPL security, etc. We often don’t know and we never care. They’re all DAPL, they’re all ETP, they’re all Trump, they’re all America.

The raid did not occur; the scare was planted by them, though in this instance, whatever they did was enough to have folks out here, especially the elders, believing it more than other times. The threat still lingers, especially as they seem very emboldened. We await with barricades.

More Akicitas have arrived, and there is talk of Anipis going up, and more ceremonies returning. Hope is here.

Today it’s colder again, and snow is falling, but it’s still relatively mild and more folks are joining camp again. All is well.

1-23-17 ~ David Kam… For Immediate Release

PUBLIC HEALTH WARNING AND ADVISORY FOR STANDING ROCK
“Possible Chlorophacinone (ROZOL) dangerous rat poison exposure”
Cannonball, North Dakota, Jan. 23, 2017 – This public health warning and advisory for Standing Rock is being issued by us as a precaution to those who have passed though the camps in and around the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Water protectors (aka known as protesters) who have been camped out since April 1st, 2016 at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation area may have been unknowing exposed to a dangerous and toxic rat poison known as Chlorophacinone (ROZOL).

An article appeared in the Bismark Tribune below that has more details for the poisoning inclident.

Meyer ranch buffalo under quarantine for ROZOL poison, LAUREN DONOVAN Bismarck Tribune, Jan 22, 2017. http://tinyurl.com/h2ewf25

Some 350 indigenous nations and up to 20,000 people passed through the camps to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, setting up camps in various locations in and around the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Reservation. Many people have come back from the camps reporting symptoms and illnesses of what is referred to as the DAPL cough, bloody noses, fatigue and some people have reported to have coughing up blood.

letourvoicesecho-ocetioyate-standingrock-buffalo-americanbison-1

The 900 buffaloes at the David Meyer’s former Cannonball Ranch near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation as well as on the former Wilder Ranch to the south have been under quarantine due to the illegal application of Chlorophacinone (ROZOL) until September of 2017. David and Ernie Fisher who shared a grazing lease on the same pesticide laced Cannonball Ranch had another herd of 600 animals on the same ranch. They reported having as many as 14 dead or missing animals, which they claimed were killed and eaten by the water protectors (protesters).

The article in the Bismark Tribune states, “The situation dates to April, when six dead bald eagles and dead bison were discovered at the former Wilder Ranch. An Environmental Protection Agency-led investigation found that 40,000 pounds of ROZOL poison had been illegally distributed across more than 5,400 acres on both ranches, according to EPA documents.” Upon investigation by the EPA, the ranch had dead bald eagles, dead prairie dogs, and dead bison.
Chlorophacinone makes creatures that ingest it bleed from every orifice and stagger around for the week or two or three it takes them to die, attracting predators and scavengers. Whatever eats the anticoagulant-laced victim dies, too. The creatures meat is unfit for human consumption and can cause blood clots. Highly toxic if it enters the food chain. Exposure to Chlorophacinone can come from skin contact of an infected animal, handling feces and urine, consuming the meat of the animal and direct contact with land and water contaminated with Chlorophacinone.

Even the feces from the animals are considered bio-hazard material. The effects of long term exposure of Chlorophacinone is unknown and there are no safe limits to having safe amounts of Chlorophacinone in your system after exposure.

“The EPA order for the cleanup was to : tilling of all misapplied ROZOL to ensure there is no longer any ROZOL on the surface of the pasture land or any other land;”

This means the 40,000 pounds of ROZOL poison was just to bury it in the soil, contaminating the water and soil around the ranches area. This means there was no real clean up of the contaminated land.

The adult buffalo are under quarantine until September 2017, though yearlings were released from the no-sale hold on Jan. 1, 2017. Upon calling the EPA, it was reported that 100 yearlings under quarantine until Jan 1, 2017 were sold on Jan 7, 2017 to unsuspecting buyers who might put the bisons into the food chain. Beverly Fisher in the article says that none of these yearlings were ever under quarantine that was sold. The EPA reports that some of the bisons sold were those under quarantine. Someone is not telling the truth here.

From the EPA docket Docket No. RCRA-8-2016 for the bison incident was dated April 22, 2016, just right after protests started for the Dakota Access Pipeline. The case is still under investigation.

1-23-17 ~ Standing Rock Protectors – Pipeline Protest… I’m seeing 3 breaking stories about Standing Rock from the past couple of days that must get out. Two of them are so bad I am feeling the onset of shock and more trauma for all upon hearing them. One of them is beautiful, but given the information in the first story below, I am having a hard time cerebrating the good that is happening.

The first story from yesterday is about possible massive Rozol poisoning of Protectors. Yes- massive poisoning. It looks like there has to have been an EPA cover-up, or at least a ‘failure to notify’ Protectors of massive amounts of this poison on the ground at Standing Rock. Many animals have died. Many people have reported symptoms… This is the ground Protectors have been camped on for many months. The ground where animals and children played for months. The ground where floods happen and carry all poison downstream. Meyers Ranch owners are responsible. All Protectors who have been to camp may have been victims of exposure to this poison. All Protectors must be tested immediately and should seek treatment if they have any health issues at all. It could be because of this poison.
http://tinyurl.com/zywkyon

letourvoicesecho-nodapl-standingrock-allnations-2-001

The second breaking story is about the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (SRST) asking the federal government to evict all camps, including Sacred Stone Camp. This is the same federal government who has been brutalizing the Protectors for months. It is a deep betrayal we are seeing be uncovered. Much deeper than I can comprehend right now. It may very well be that the SRST had this plan from the beginning and never thought this movement would be a real movement, or that it would be so big and last so long. They want it to go away now and clearly don’t care how. The Chairman got the name DAPL Dave a while back, but I was reserving judgment. Seems pretty clear now – the SRST council is likely on the DAPL payroll and are trying to cover-up the Rozol poison story before it gets out.
http://tinyurl.com/z2pr2b2

letourvoicesecho-ocetioyate-standingrock-lradf

The third story, after the previous two, is really bittersweet… It is a letter from the Protectors sharing their guided, beautiful, legitimate direction. They plan to stay at camp no matter what happens. I don’t know if they know about the poison yet.

I cannot believe things have come to this. This world can be such a horrific place. My heart hurts..

1-22-17~ Eryn Wise… Yesterday’s Women’s March on Washington was overwhelming. Upon our arrival Thomas and I were faced with the short tempers, inconsiderate nature and intensity of women we were supposed to be standing in solidarity with.

The indigenous folx present were able to carve out a space in front of the National Museum of the American Indian large enough to form a circle where we spoke, sang, and danced in honor of our foremothers. It was the only space in the march that, for me, felt inclusive and welcoming. After our rally as we tried to enter the march I watched many women be pushed, shoved, yelled at, and cut short by other women. An indigenous woman grabbed my hand, trying to lead me further into the march so that we could catch up with our group and at every turn there was another woman planting her feet before us and saying, “You can’t go by me here. You’ll have to go around.” When this happened friends looked on, nodding their approval and leading some others to even say that “these Indian girls lost their drums. That’s why they’re trying to get through us.”

I realized that I was in a space that had been created with good intention, under the guise of unification but in reality was for white feminists and their vaginas. I thought about my sweet trans, queer, non-identifying, intersectional, and non-white sisters that seemed absent in the crowd. For every ten pink pussy signs waving in my face, I saw one, maybe two, signs that represented women of color. It was weird and uncomfortable. Once the bubble of indigeneity was gone from around me I was desperate to leave.

I became frustrated with the crowd screaming, “This is what democracy looks like!”

SO many sisters and womyn were absent that I began to cry. Women who had only minutes earlier been shoving me out of their way began stopping to ask me what was wrong. “This is fake,” I found myself repeating. “I hate this.” Some tried to blame it on the size of the crowd. Others tried in very gentle ways to ask me if I was on or approaching my moon. Unintentional sexism dripped from the tongues of these women as they tried to calm me.

“Whose land? OUR LAND!” they chanted. “Whose bodies? OUR BODIES!” they cried. “THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!”

Not in my eyes, but I’m just one woman. Outside of my own experience, I have seen hundreds of my sisters uplifted by the Women’s Marches held around the globe. Many of them had never attended a rally, felt like they belonged so fully, or mattered as much. For these reasons, I am grateful that the marches took place. I just wish a more inclusive space had been created for the non-white feminists who truly need a voice, especially in the onset of Trump’s administration.

I am lucky enough to say that I was raised by many inspiring, and impactful women. My chosen family is full of brave, radical, two-spirit, and beautiful women; many of whom are with me in D.C. right now. I was able to attend the rally/march to speak and sing alongside women I deeply love and respect — for these gifts, I am grateful.

I write this to call upon the women out there reading along. Please do not forget your fellow women of color. Trans sisters. Undocumented sisters. Sisters of different faiths. Sisters without vaginas. Sisters with vaginas of different shapes, sizes, and colors — we do not all have perfect pink pussies – please do not encourage the narrative that there is only one way for a body to be. Please remember that the wounds of women first start with the great, intentional, and continual wounding of our Mother Earth. May we continue to rise together, with all our sisters, in honor of each other and Unci Maka.

1-22-17 ~ Lee Sprague… Standing Rock Tribal Council votes for Indian Removal Act. It’s Trail of Tears version includes allied Water Protectors. Making Indian People move in the dead of winter, because someone wants the land for farming, ranching, or industrial activities, sounds familiar to me. Now the Standing Rock Tribal Council wants to Trail of Tears us out of camp? It raises historical trauma, similar to our relatives who were force marched at the hands of the US Government, from their lands.

*Concerned about the loss of revenue to the Standing Rock Tribal Programs, Council votes to dip into the 6.5 million in legal funds that were contributions to Water Protectors.” Now they want to close down each Camp?
If the concern is public safety, as stated, sheltering in place during the harsh North Dakota Winter is the safest way forward, except for DAPL cowboying it up. The main camp is not on ‘Standing Rock’ lands, it should be though. The Army Corp of Engineers claims the land we are camped on.

In this picture is Alex. I stayed in his TIPI most of this winter until it became unlivable. Thanks Alex. Lots of good times in the Tipi. We kept our batteries and controllers in there for our solar wind power system. Ben moved it. Now folks know how to set up a solar/wind now thanks to Brad Kallio.
We all could use the legal funds.

1-22-17 Jacky Smith‎… As a white European woman, I’ve been watching this feed & commenting – I think this is the first time I’ve posted here. But I read something yesterday that hit home hard and I think it’s something people like me should notice. Someone who lives near Standing Rock said that they were scared about what might happen when the visiting water protectors go home, because they remembered the terrible things that happened at Pine Ridge after AIM went home in the 70’s. Well in the 70’s I was an activist and I noticed what was going on – but I couldnt figure out a way to find out more, or to do anything about it. And then I got involved in anti-apartheid, and didnt have time for any other campaigns. I apologise for that, from the bottom of my heart. This time, we have social media and a shedload of people all round the world are watching. We need to carry on watching, and noticing, and talking about it – and we need you guys living at Standing Rock to keep posting, keep telling us what’s going on, keep talking to us. This time I won’t get distracted, you’re top of my list. There are a lot of issues that the new president will be fighting on, we have to make sure that yours is one of the big ones. The UN are coming to investigate, the ACLU are out there, the guys that monitor the ethics of the government can be dragged kicking & screaming into the fight, climate change is getting to the point where only a combover dumbo who never goes outside can ignore it, the Chinese are making renewables so cheap that coal prices cant be propped up, gas prices are still so low that fracking makes a loss, the demand for oil is tanking. All these things are on your side, exactly as your ancestors predicted. Now is the time to keep praying, chanting, singing, dancing, talking and above all hoping. We are with you, and we’re not going to let go. Mni wicone!

That’s the gift that we get. That’s the special the Indians get out here. We don’t 30 feet of distance before we get shot. We are lucky if we get 7 feet.

1-21-17 ~ Lyla June…I am a Diné (Navajo) woman but I wrote this last verse in Spanish because our native brothers and sisters in Central and South America experience a deeper suppression of thier culture and identity than we do up here in the “the states”. The Eagle and the Condor are coming together. This is why we are mislabeled “hispanic” or “latino”. Don’t let the imaginary border fool us. We are one tribe of Turtle Island! I also want to acknowledge that some of the first Indigenous Peopeles that were forced into hiding were the medicine women of Old Europe. They estimate that 6-9 million women were raped, beaten, tortured, burned alive or drowned alive for being “witches.” Let us reclaim our Earth Selves no matter what “race” you are and do it soon! The earth may depend on it.

Yo soy una mujer Diné, pero escribí el segundo parte en español por que reconozco que la mayoria de nuesrtas hermanas y hermanos indígenas del central y sudamérica experimentan una mayor supresión de su cultura e identidad. Es por esto que estamos mal etiquetadas “hispano” o “latino”. No deje que la frontera imaginaria nos engañe! Somos una tribu de la isla de la tortuga! El Aguila reconozca el Condór! 😀 También quiero reconocer que algunos de los primeros pueblos indígenas que se vieron obligados a esconderse eran las curanderas de Europa Vieja. Se estima que 6-9 millones de mujeres fueron violadas, golpeadas, torturadas, quemadas vivas o ahogadas vivas por ser “brujas”. Recupere su mismo como Genta de la Tierra, no importa la “raza” que usted es, y lo hace pronto! La tierra puede depender de esta subida de conocimiento ancestral.

Come join us at the Black Hills Unity Concert this weekend! September 9-11, 2016. www.TheUnityConcert.com. Many are headed to http://sacredstonecamp.org/ in Cannonball, ND after the concert to protect the water from DAPL.

1-21-17 ~ Confluence Documentary with Dallas Goldtooth … WATER IS LIFE
The Lakota have long prophesied that one day a great black snake would slither through the land, pollute the water, and bring great destruction to the people and the Earth…. In 2014, Energy Transfer Partners announced plans to build a pipeline that would transport fracked crude from the Bakken formation to refineries in the Gulf Coast. Obama had recently lifted the ban on exporting petroleum via the international market; big oil needed to find a way to capitalize on this. Using the smokescreen of “energy independence from the Middle East,” as propaganda, the public in North Dakota believed that this was about decreasing our dependency on foreign oil. In all actuality, it was just about profits for oil companies and would create very few jobs here in the US. The Dakota Access Pipeline originally proposed route crossed the Missouri River near Bismarck, but was re-routed through native land in violation of several treaties signed with the government and threatened their drinking water supply (as well as for near 30 other million people downstream). When construction began and sacred burial sites were being destroyed, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe realized that this was the manifestation of the prophecy of the black snake. It needed to be stopped.

In April of 2016, after runs across the country to raise awareness, members of the Youth Council set up camp along the Missouri River to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline. After putting out a call for support, the camps have swelled to as many as 10,000 Water Protectors from around 500 tribes as well as non-native allies who showed solidarity to the cause. An unprecedented peaceful demonstration, water protectors began praying and chaining themselves the DAPL construction equipment. Many were arrested by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, who essentially was working as a private security force for Energy Transfer Partners.

In the beginning, there was a complete media blackout and independent journalists who were arriving to tell the story were being specifically targeted. Water protectors and free press were brutalized, shot with rubber bullets, attacked by viscous police dogs, shot with tear gas canisters, concussion grenades and pepper sprayed for protesting peacefully. Communications have been jammed using sting rays and dirt boxes; Indigenous leaders have been spied on in this advanced Orwellian surveillance state. To date, Energy Transfer Partners has spent near 200 million dollars in private security on top of 22 million in tax payer money for law enforcement to finance the paramilitary spectacle. Arrestees have been strip searched for misdemeanor trespassing offenses and held in cages that resemble dog kennels, often times in their underwear for 12 hours or more. The scene goes in direct contrast with what the United States of America supposedly stands for; although Native Americas would beg to differ that America is a just nation founded on principles of so-called democracy and human rights. The pipeline is a direct extension of the legacy of colonization and genocide that their people have endured for hundreds of years.

As the election distracted most of the public, politicians turned a blind eye to Standing Rock as it would disrupt the Democratic energy platform for the next 40 years… Most of Hillary Clinton’s top campaign contributors were financing the pipeline and Donald Trump had personally invested millions. Standing Rock chairman David Archambault II testified in front of the UN to ask for help pleading that water is a human right. As the fight against the DAPL began to pick up steam, the powers that be could no longer turn a blind eye to the human rights abuse and disregard for the law. Much spin has attempted to quell the support of the movement, but… it kept growing. An influx of media and celebrities brought even more attention to the camp. Actress Shailene Woodley, Amy Goodman, and even Presidential candidate Jill Stein were charged/arrested during front line actions. Water protectors like Red Fawn were illegally detained and held without bail. They have endured all of this to protect life’s most basic need…water.

On December 4, 2016, The Army Corps of Engineers gave the water protectors of Standing Rock a major victory when they refused to grant permits for DAPL to drill under the Missouri River. This decision shows that the power of the people cannot be ignored. Although significant, the victory is only temporary as the pipeline company is appealing the decision in federal court. Thousands of Water Protectors have remained diligent through blizzards and sub zero temperatures and remain to this day.

…the fight continues. Please stand with Standing Rock and support the indigenous led resistance against not just the DAPL, but all the other pipeline black snake construction projects around the country that threaten our water….

1-21-17 ~ Ricardo Jasper… Hi my name is Ricardo Jasper I’m a native American from the Diné nation aka Navajo Nation, im Originally from Tuba City Arizona, I’m a bitter water clan and Manygoat clan..

The reason why I’m here is because I wanted to share what I have experience in standing rock and to bring awareness to the movement, it all started with the Colorado River being contaminated when the mining company, Gold King Mine, in Silverton Colorado a team of workers with environmental protection agency accidentally released 3million gallons of toxic waste into the river, which the Animus River in Colorado had turned orange as a toxic spill continued to flow downstream and through other states, this is when I realized what was going on with fracking, and how all these oil companies were digging into our mother earth to look for oil. That’s when i started looking into more about fracking, then I heard about Standing Rock battling with oil corporations and the State of North Dakota, these companies have come so close together that the people are at a moment where they don’t feel like their voices are being heard, and so the last thing that was left for us is to assemble, is to gather together and to protest or protect, and I had the urge to go out there and help my relatives protect the water , our future generation, our kids future.

When I drove up to the camp site (Oceti Sakowin Camp) it was breathtaking my heart started to cry, the feeling was unbearably beautiful, you could feel the positive energy, you could feel the spirit around you and the love and peacefulness, the people were so kind and generous, very helpful, everybody loved each other, everybody helped each other, and if you needed help they would have volunteers there waiting to help you right away, you would wish the whole world would be like Oceti Sakowin Camp, I stayed there for like 2½ months I helped with the construction part of the camp we built Tarpees. The reason why we called them Tarpees was because they look like Tepees but they were made out of tarp, the other buildings were teepees, yurts, and hogan’s.

We started to winterize the camp and I helped out with the actions too. Actions were being on the front lines of stopping the construction of the pipeline, people sacrifice their lives, tying themselves to the equipment’s and peacefully praying for the company to stop from hurting our mother earth, to stopped them from desecrating our ancestral burial grounds, I was always at the front lines getting shot with rubber bullets being pepper sprayed for no reason, all we did was pray and try to talk to the officers and pray with them some of them would stand there and cry some were in shocked at what their fellow comrades were doing to the people, some of them would stare at you and smile then point the gun at you some would have a blast shooting people and laugh about Tear gassing us, shoot percussion grenades at the people, spraying us with cold water with water cannons in 15 degree weather, and it would go on for hours, everybody there was dedicated to protect the water, to protect what’s right for all of us, it wasn’t just an Indigenous thing it was about everybody. I told people “if I bleed red and you bleed red it’s your problem too” “It’s not about being a hero, we have no egos, and it wasn’t about being important, it was about being part of the team we stand in solidarity with standing rock we wanted to tell people that we should realize that if they should being upset about ISIS destroying those artifacts in Syria Iraq they should be twice as upset as they are desecrating them graves, destroying those ancient sites, if they’re going to be angry at the injustice around the other world then they need to start talking about the injustice here in America as well, there still Colonization going on and you can see it in the ground that she is bleeding right now, and when you look up around the other world, you see there is a river in Russia that is now red blood red because of the dirty chemicals from a metal plant that’s there now and we gonna have the same thing here, this is the company that’s done this before and this isn’t anything that we can get rid of, and you know I remind people that we can’t eat green paper, we can’t drink that Gucci purse sweetheart All we have is this water, all we have is this Land, and we have to protect it, we belong to the earth, the earth doesn’t belong to us, we just protect her, she doesn’t ask for money, all she asks is to take care of her as she will take care of us.

My experience in Standing Rock is something that I will never forget, it was beautiful it was emotional but we all stood together, we all looked after each other, some of us may have PTSD but we are all here for each other, now I have all these beautiful, beautiful people, my new extended family from all over the world, different nations, different tribes, different nationalities, if we keep standing together fight for what’s right for our people for our mother earth, for our future generations, we can the change the world.. We are the people we don’t need one person to run our country, we have the power to be ONE LIFE, ONE LOVE, ONE NATION.. AHÒ I could talk for hours and hours about Standing Rock… I will never forget it !!

“By next week the EIS will be rescinded,” Cramer told me referring to the lengthy environmental study President Obama initiated in his final days in office. The Congressman said the Trump administration has the authority to rescind it because, in legal filings responding to the pipeline company’s request that the study be enjoined, the Obama administration itself argued that this was the case.

Cramer also said a decision granting permission for the pipeline to cross the Lake Oahe reservoir is imminent. “The easement will be issued maybe as early as Monday,” he said.

1-21-17 ~ ‎Jim Petoskey‎… Do not sit around waiting for the next great leader to come along. That’s how we got into this mess to begin with. Sitting around waiting for the next, Kennedy, the next Crazy Horse, the next Sitting Bull, the next Pontiac or Tecumseh. Martin Luther King or Ghandi . When they do come, they kill them off. Instead of giving a damn about the khardashians, the Super Bowls, worry about how to respect all life and what that really means. Become a participant in life. Give a sincere damn about our neighbors, the sick, the aged, the future of generations to come. We sat back and watched others do what everyone should be doing. We let people exploit the resources, pollute the land water and food and wonder why we are sick. We all have a brain, use it, but make sure your heart is connected. Nurture your spirits, not man made religions. DO NOT be afraid to be curious, question things, That’s exactly what they want. They have successfully dumbed down education and in turn dumbed down us. Now do yourself and the world a favor THINK. Even question what I just told you.

1-21-17 ~ Elizabeth Hoover… Was sitting on the plane editing photos that I took at Standing Rock over the past several days, and noticed the ladies next to me peering at my screen. They asked if I was a war photographer- where were these photos taken? Right here in the US of A, ladies. Yes those are unarmed civilians those National Guard and police officers are shooting at. Indian reservations have again become military training grounds

Your well wishes and support will get me through this and out on the front lines asap. It has been my honor and a privilege to stream the truth for you these last 5 years. From Chicago to Ferguson; Baltimore to Oakland; NY and elsewhere, I have never stopped learning and being inspired by all the passionate ppl I have come to know, some of whom I now consider family. And that goes for many of you online as well!

I will be in a hotel resting and elevating my hand (picture make more sense now? ) for the next few days.

Not accurate is officer 4973’s written comment that I confessed to bringing goods to to Turtle Hill.
“We carry warm clothes and blankets, gloves, mittens in water proof bags. We carry watersheds to the prayer lines. We carry people hurt by the Morton County Sheriff, Because they don’t respond to water protectors in harm’s way. Harm visited on the Water Protectors by the Morton County Sheriff Department.“

The REAL ‘Lone Ranger’ Was An African American Lawman Who Lived With Native American Indians
The real “Lone Ranger,” it turns out, was an African American man named Bass Reeves (July 1838 – 12 January 1910), who the legend was based upon. Perhaps not surprisingly, many aspects of his life were written out of the story, including his ethnicity. The basics remained the same: a lawman hunting bad guys, accompanied by a Native American, riding on a white horse, and with a silver trademark. Continue Reading http://tinyurl.com/kr6zycg

1-19-17 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi‎… Take care Friends in the light—Finger Pointers, Name Callers and Dissent Sowers are everywhere

I have tried to not comment on negativity, dissension causers, finger pointers and attackers – but a lot of people in this group and others keep asking me about these things. And want to know why it seems to be increasing. They ask why groups are questioning groups… and why some are attacking posters and video people… and on it goes.

I see people attacking others in the camps, on the virtual support and education pages, on personal pages and elsewhere. Questioning motives and trustworthiness. Questioning money use and intentions. Asking why they are not white or red or yellow or black. Speaking total lies. Working with all their might to create dissent so it will destroy everyone’s work from within. I have seen people I know to be working with all they can for clean water being attacked and villefied. And when I have come to their defense, watched myself attacked. And others. Several we watch in the group attack a list of water protectors each day. Sadly, some believe too many lies.

I see more attacks as we create the Water is Life Movement because that scares the hell out of the business people and politicians. Each day on our Standing Rock Protectors group we add hundreds of people – and about 25% are phony accounts when we check.

If we let these trolls and company plants divide us we will collapse into chaos. Or even those people still stuck in thinking one group or protest or people can lead this entire peaceful revolution.

Question what you see and hear. And when you think you know the truth – question further. Continue to come together as one. In the way of the prophecy of the four colors uniting.

Together we will win this war. The worse enemy now is ourselves if we allow the dessention sowers to divide and conquer. None of us are perfect, but we are all standing for Standing Rock, clean water and other camps everywhere. Focus there and let the hate mongers flow over us like a wind.

Thanks for hearing me.

1-19-19 ~ Cody Two Bears… Hau’ Mitakiyapi (All My Relatives) I am Cody Two Bears (Mah’to Nun’pa) Councilman of the Cannon Ball Community (Eyapaha) for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. I am Yanktonai (From the Cut Head Band) My Ancestors come from the east side of the Missouri River and lived there for 125 years before 1862 when the Minnesota Uprising and White Stone Hill Massacre moved us to the west side of the Missouri River. I speak to you today with a strong heart. I wanna share some concerns with you that we has a tribe and has a community do not agree with the current situation going on at the Backwater Bridge north of Cannon Ball. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and elders have consistently asked people not to confront DAPL and law enforcement since after the Decision was made on December 4, 2016 and to stay away from the Bridge. We all know the Bridge was tested and it needed minor repairs to open it back up. But with what’s been happening the past three nights have hurt those chances of it being open again. Our Membership need that bridge open for emergency and daily commutes. We have elderly and people with a lot of health issues, dialysis, diabetics, heart problems. We have community members that have business that are being affected. Not only that but we know drugs and alcohol use has been in these camps recently. We the Tribe and its membership know this fight isn’t over. But the more unnecessary actions that take place north of Cannon Ball hurts our chances with winning this fight in court and at the government level moving forward. I feel we are in a great position now that Native Nations will have a big Voice Moving forward. We owe a great thanks to everyone that has came and support us with this fight. But we feel now the peace and prayerful actions are not happening anymore. I see violence happening from our side the people that came here to help us. We the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and our Membership don’t support these actions it’s only hurting our chances moving forward. Once again We ask people to stand down. If we truly believe in prayer and trust in it we will win. Let our prayers do all our actions. Let’s not stoop to there level cause once we do we are no better than them!! They want us to start to be violent so The Tribe it’s membership and this whole movement will lose everything we have gained. Please be respectful and honor the wishes of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe it’s elderly and it’s membership.. Thanks to you all once again. Hau Mitakuye Oyasin..

1-19-17 ~ Tomas Karmelo Amaya… “Women are traditionally associated with water and men with fire, but this moment made me think of the culmination of the two forces. As the shadows cast across the sides of the teepee, a home that represents the womb from which we are reborn daily, I also thought of a blazing ember. Fire cannot burn without oxygen and water contains oxygen just like our women hold the answers to our deepest tribulations. They are our ultimate medicine, our healers, our guardians of the future.”

The night before Morton County law enforcement attacked water protectors, Jade and I drove around camp looking for Faith Spotted Eagle so that we could interview her for @indigenousrising. Once we arrived to her location, I was not allowed to enter the teepee because a women’s meeting was in session. As I walked away I noticed the silhouettes of my aunties and sisters projected on the structure.

Women are traditionally associated with water and men with fire, but this moment made me think of the culmination of the two forces. As the shadows cast across the sides of the teepee, a home that represents the womb from which we are reborn daily, I also thought of a blazing ember. Fire cannot burn without oxygen and water contains oxygen just like our women hold the answers to our deepest tribulations. They are our ultimate medicine, our healers, our guardians of the future.

I left shortly after taking this photo and I would not see Jade until several hours later. Although she did not get to interview Faith, she came back more powerful than ever.

1-19-17 ~ Nataanii Means… “Today I board a plane to Utah still tasting the tear gas and mace pellets, still hearing the rounds of rubber bullets and bean bags being fired off like popcorn. Last night a group of young men put a tipi up on the road on our side of the bridge. Signifying our continued fight for treaty rights. The police then crossed the bridge and tore down our sacred home and took the poles.

Last night when I arrived it was hectic; you know there will be people that are agitators that do jeopardize a lot with how they act on frontlines like this. We de-escalated them, and you also have to understand young men who have been taking this abuse for months, who have been made to feel lower than low by the police that support corporate entities like DAPL. I’m not making excuses for them, but there are ways to talk with them. After all the commotion we remained prayerful, we sang our sacred songs, we prayed for Leonard Peltier who was denied clemency, we prayed for our treaty rights, we continued to try and clean the bridge as best we could. Again I want to stress that I know our fight is not with the police, that it is in the courts, but we have to let the world know the violence is still happening, that the lights are still up, in no way have we negotiated a situation that benefits us, we’ve been weak. As long as we keep these police out, we exhaust them and their resources, if they want to continue to make the conscious choice to protect a pipeline, then we will make them stand in the cold with us. Continuing to live on treaty land with lights in our faces, heavy police forces, and a drill sitting there is a slap in the face.

The police reacted in violence last night. They reacted to prayer in violence. Like always. We have NO WEAPONS, we know what THEY are capable of so we protect ourselves with shields, we are not looking to fight, but we will protect ourselves as we try our best to protect the water and make these statements. DO NOT look at us any other way than what we are, that is young people caring for our children’s future. Support us and remember we are people of strength, stop showing our weakness by questioning everything someone does.

If only the old leaders were alive to remind us who and where we come from. But we are the next, the young generation. And we are here standing with NO FEAR. I watched Russell Means stand with no fear, and we are trying our damn best to do what we can. My dad was shot on Standing Rock by BIA police after Wounded Knee. I also know he would be ashamed and sad of what is happening here, how OUR OWN PEOPLE ARE TREATING OUR OWN FOR ONLY WANTING TO BE FREE!

Somebody said last night “If we cross the barricade they’ll stop the EIS” well first we DID NOT want to cross it, second, why do we have to act from a position of fear. That is a direct threat on our own treaty land. That is a scare tactic, I just want to know where is our strength, I haven’t seen it since my father passed. The olders here act and say everything from fear, I understand that, but I’m not used to that.

So here we are. Young people remaining in prayer and unarmed strength. I love you all.

Again, I am no one. Here, I am just ikce wicasa, I’m only a common man that wants clean water for the future. I am not a leader, nor do I want to be, just updating the social atmosphere with my thoughts. A’ho…”

1-19-17 ~ International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee… I woke up this morning excited, happy, hopeful and imaginging the upcoming weekend. I was going to pick Uncle Leonard up from prison and drive him up north. I was going to stop at his daughter Marquetta’s in Kansas, his sister Betty Ann’s in Fargo, ND, and his grandchildren Cyrus and Alex in Grand Forks and lastly his hometown in Turtle Mountain.

The family has been commuicating constantly in these last hours, so excited about our future plans and finally having the eldest man in the family home.

We have had thousands of people from all over the world praying for his freedom, which could only be given by Obama. We all believed and had so much faith in our President. We believed he truly cared for Leonard.

I had just finished visiting with a friend with so much joy that Uncle Leonard would be free and home by this weekend. Not even fifteen minutes later, i was given the heart wrenching news he was denied clemency. Basically a death sentence. I am asking all of you to let Obama hear our OUTCRY over and disappointment with his decision today.

Call, email, tweet. Use Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and your powerful prayers… whatever is your means of communication… to let him know we are not happy. The people are not happy. His family is not happy. You can change your mind, Obama. You have the power.

I beg and plead. Hear our outcry!
On behalf of Leonards family

That bridge blockade is an economic sanction to punish Standing Rock for standing up, punitive measures to force Native people back into 2nd class citizenhood, to turn tribal & state public opinion against the water protectors & its working. This is why we are kept poor, in tutelage. They can manipulate by withholding rations. The chains are there if you look. This is about more than a pipeline. This is about an inevitable and natural liberation from the state of oppression being perpetrated on not only Native Nations but all human beings.”

I couldn’t take a breath and my eyes were tearing up. All this is happening to me at the same time they were being attacked. I think it was a sign. Such is life as an empath… across the ocean in England I felt their distress. When I woke up this morning I have a bad painful back right below my left shoulder blade.

It is now deployed to overlook the #NoDAPL camps. That’s right. North Dakota has deployed more military vehicles to the Cannonball river area. This is intimidation tactics 101. Demonstrate the extent of your power in hopes to deter action.

To be clear, there is no indication that this vehicle is armed. Numerous veteran allies have stated that this vehicle is mostly likely being used for its FLIR system (Thermal, Night, and Infrared Vision). This will allow the police to track movement at night or in snowy conditions.

However, it DOES NOT BELONG in the area of what remains an overall peaceful demonstration. How can the state hope to further the message of peaceful resolution when they continue to escalate the situation?

Why did DAPL take 146 million gallons of water from the Missouri River. That amount is extremely excessive for water sampling. That is NOT a sampling amount, that is just shy of the amount Nestle’ just purchased from Michigan for bottling. The man who believes that water is not a human right. Current Wall Street Trends are showing that water is a commodity that is turning to Gold in the market.

We need to question the motives of DAPL on whether this is about the oil or the oil AND the water. Demand an investigation to what happened to 146 million gallons of water taken by DAPL today. Contact your state representative, contact the White House, contact Army Corp of Engineers and demand to know what happened to all that water TODAY.

Vanessa aka Sioux Z, Navajo Nation … “Last week, a week and a half ago, when everybody was moving the trucks off the bridge I was given a head shot by Morton County’s Sheriff Department. Six, five, six? I’m not sure how many. There were quite a few of them tear gas canisters launched, aimed at my head. Also after I was hit in the eye with one of the tear gas canisters as I left to run; I was also shot with a rubber bullet in the back, my lower leg, my lower butt, my upper thigh area. Yeah, that’s what happened.

I am a dispatcher for Oceti Sakowin Akitchita. I’m a warrior. I’m a dispatcher of information. Right now, my role is kind of changing now that I can’t be…..I’m still here. I still answer dispatcher calls, but not being able to go to the front lines any more, which I’m still going to go. The Veterans are here, so I’m going to run with the Veterans over there, but my goal now is to really look at our health care system as being Native American, which is also in our treaties. You know, I didn’t get the care that I needed within 72 hours to save my eye because I had IHS from Navajo and Arizona Medicaid, and nobody would work with me, you know? I’ll never see again, and it’s just so sad that our system is broken in so many ways. And I just want the world to know that there’s a lot more things to our treaties other than land. Healthcare was included in these treaties, and our government needs to start honoring these treaties, so my role is changing a little bit.”

Please consider donating to Vanessa’s gofundme, so that she may get the medical care she needs. She also asks that you pray.

1-13-17 ~ These are powerful words from Chase IronEyes today.

He points out that the incoming administration has indicated it will pursue a policy that accelerates extraction, big financial interests, and the rights of the corporatocracy. It will advance the longstanding program to absorb and eradicate native peoples, their lands and their cultures. IronEyes advocates continuing the unarmed opposition to these forces at Standing Rock. “We are the ghost dancers of our time. Only this time we have a world of allies.”

Chase IronEyes: “This may be the only opportunity that we have while the world is not only watching us–but the world is waiting on us. The world needs us to lead. We may be the only people–the only natural human beings–who still maintain that spiritual connection to the Universe, to the sacred sites, to water, to all the elements of Creation from which we derive our identity and our civilization.Those are our gifts. We may be the last real ones–the people who could provide that moral and spiritual authority to liberate from those forces which seek to oppress that in us, which have been at work in a very effective manner for a thousand years…. What we are saying is we are committed to this stand.”

“There was a concerted effort to turn us into a nation of beggars, to dehumanize us, to make us hate ourselves, to steal our dignity. But fortunately, our people are strong, our people are survivors, and we are here standing.”

1-12-17 ~ Chief Dan George (July 24, 1899–September 23, 1981) was a chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band located on Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an author, poet, and an Academy Award-nominated actor.

Chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band whose Indian reserve is located on Burrard Inlet in the southeast area of the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an actor, poet and author; his best-known written work was “My Heart Soars”.As an actor, he is best remembered for portraying Old Lodge Skins opposite Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man (1970), for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Born as Geswanouth Slahoot in North Vancouver, his English name was originally Dan Slaholt. The surname was changed to George when he entered a residential school at age 5. He worked at a number of different jobs, including as a longshoreman, construction worker, and school bus driver, and was band chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation from 1951 to 1963 (then called the Burrard Indian Band).

In 1960, when he was already 60 years old, he landed his first acting job in a CBC Television series, Cariboo Country, as the character Ol’ Antoine (pron. “Antwine”). He performed the same role in a Walt Disney Studios movie Smith! (1969), adapted from an episode in this series (based on Breaking Smith’s Quarter Horse, a novella by Paul St. Pierre). At age 71, he received several honors for his role in the film Little Big Man (1970), including a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He continued to act in other films, such as Cancel My Reservation (1972), Alien Thunder (1974), The Bears and I (1974), Harry and Tonto (1974), The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), Shadow of the Hawk (1976), Americathon (1979), Spirit of the Wind (1979) and Nothing Personal (1980), and on television, including a role in the 1978 miniseries Centennial, based on the book by James A. Michener, as well as appearing in a 1973 episode of the original Kung Fu series and in several episodes of The Beachcombers.

He played the role of Rita Joe’s father in George Ryga’s stage play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, in performances at Vancouver, the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and Washington, D.C..

During his acting career, he worked to promote better understanding by non-aboriginals of the First Nations people. His soliloquy, Lament for Confederation, an indictment of the appropriation of native territory by white colonialism, was performed at the City of Vancouver’s celebration of the Canadian centennial in 1967.This speech is credited with escalating native political activism in Canada and touching off widespread pro-native sentiment among non-natives.

In 1971, George was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2008 Canada Post issued a postage stamp in its “Canadians in Hollywood” series featuring Chief Dan George.
He died in Vancouver in 1981 at the age of 82. He was interred at Burrard Cemetery.

1-12-17 ~ THE GATHERING by Chief Sitting Bull
The Turning of The Tide

It is very important that as many people as possible, in different places, should take part in the Gathering. Decide where and when and how to gather, your participation is needed. This is the beginning of the break we are all waiting for. This is the beginning of the turnaround. We have waited so long for the change. It is time. This is the beginning of the end of the old ways, the turning of the tide. State what you believe is true. Exchange the information and hopes you have. Always in the world, a change starts with a few people. These few speak the feelings and thoughts of a multitude. They speak the heart of humanity’s soul. The people who are coming together will ring in a return, a turnaround. There will come a flow on Earth which will burst the dark energies surrounding you and your planet. Let your self-belief be your guide, and follow your heart. Realise the greatness you have within yourself, and go ahead. This is the time so many have waited so long for. That which you believe is true must be stated.

Her tears flow
just as abundantly

A strong woman

She is both

1-12-17 ~ Wicapi Otto‎ … Army Corp of Engineers needs to understand just how many people are affected by not only this pipeline, but many pipelines across the world. This is for everyone, there is absolutely no exclusion of nation, country, background…etc.

This is going to be given to the tribe and Army Corp of Engineers. I have never understood how things go viral, but I guess for a first time attempt, let’s see how this goes, because I need viral on this. A petition is one thing, it makes a statement, and this is to reflect the effect on human activity. Our connectivity as a human race is a human activity and a simple one to show them how many people object to not only DAPL, but as our voice to oppose all. Trolls are welcome as well, your number will be added to the count of people that matter and are affected to human activity as well. I only ask those in support not to respond to them and waste precious time and energy with negativity. This is very important.

I only need you to state “I am affected” and your location. It does not need to be specific, just please keep it simple as I have to convert this to a document after and wasted data only wastes time.

Thank you everyone everywhere for helping with this. Pilamiya!

PS. If every now and then, someone can tag my name for check in, I have a couple of these going around of this exact same post and it will help me locate and check. Thank you!

1-12-17 ~ Daphne Singingtree… Camp Update. We need people on site more than ever. A recent meeting between the Standing Rock Tribal Council and Camp Leaders from Oceti Sakowin, Sacred Stone and Rosebud showed the need for increased communication. Sacred Stone is located on higher ground and is building a permanent, sustainable, culture camp. This is an extraordinary outcome from the protest that will serve provide a space for people in the area to come and learn skills from permaculture, to green energy & building, as well as be a base for the movement to protect the water and the Earth. The Oceti & Rosebud camps will need to move to higher ground. Land has been set aside by the Standing Rock Tribe for a camp that can house many people, plans include solar/wind power, yurt and tipi villages, greenhouses and gardens, and a long term sustainable community. It is unclear to me at this point how many folks will be moving to the new tribe site, or the higher ground on the current Oceti site (Facebook Hill), or some of the other protest camps such as Texas. Moving the tipis, yurts and other structures will be a lot of work, especially to accomplish before snow melt.

Everyone shares concerns about the amount of trash, abandoned tents, and other items that are located in the floodplain. Without timely removal, there is a risk of contaminating the very river we are protecting. No one expected thousands, at one point ten thousand people to show up at camp. Then the severe weather came, most people left, leaving behind a lot of stuff and not enough people to process the donations, and then clean up afterwards.

We need able bodied people who are able to work in the cold, please plan on coming to help, even for a week or two, anytime over the next month or two. The burden is falling on people who work incredibly hard, they are getting sick, burned out, and it is easy to get discouraged when faced with such a monumental task. We particularly need people with 4×4 trucks and trailers. Let’s not forget our Water Protectors and Water Warriors. Let’s not leave a giant mess on people who can ill afford to clean it up.

Some of the resources donated will be relocated to other camps. Other supplies need to be protected from the elements until spring or distributed in the local community. All of this takes work, and the medics are busy keeping people safe and healthy. We need help to recycle and remove trash, as well as helping move the yurts and tipis to the new site. So many people have left that there are sleeping spaces available, if you don’t have a contact with someone in camp and want to help Zaniyan at Rosebud, I can get you connected.

The fight is not over, the movement has just began, we have much hard labor ahead of us, and still need the help and support of all. #nodapl #waterislife

I’ve been getting messages about a lot of you being concerned and worried. So I wanted to let you know that I stand strong, I stay in prayer, and I never falter from my beliefs as a protector of all things sacred.

I’m doing good, I’m clear headed, I appreciate my strong support system. I appreciate the 20+ letters and cards I get everyday. As they remind me to believe in all good things .

“When will they open their eyes and heart and listen to our cries and please and prayers to protect our dying Mother Earth. I believe this is the time when we as protectors of this land . We need to stand up, stand strong, and never give up. We are obligated to the protection of this earth, we have been taught this from child hood. Our ancestors made sure we would know our creation stories, our histories and our instructions to continue the care taking, the protection and the spiritual obligations to this land for our next seven generations and to our ancestors. My heart, my prayers and my strength are with you all.

People from around the world saw images and video of what Natives have been going through for generations in towns next to reservations.

The gathering of Indigenous Nations in Standing Rock showed unity between each other because of a common shared belief, Water is Life. Another shared belief might bring them together again to organize Indigenous Nations Peace Keepers to act like a shield when indigenous peoples try to exercise their treaty rights and Constitutional rights.

1-10-17 ~ Heart of Standing Rock… Dignity is a sculpture on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River near Chamberlain, South Dakota. The 50-foot high stainless steel statue, by South Dakota artist laureate Dale Lamphere, depicts an Indigenous woman in Plains-style dress receiving a star quilt. According to Lamphere, the sculpture honors the culture of the Lakota and Dakota peoples who are indigenous to South Dakota.

“My intent for this is to have the sculpture stand as an enduring symbol of our shared belief that we are in a sacred place and that we are all sacred,” Lamphere said. “I’m humbled and so grateful to have this chance to contribute to the future landscape of South Dakota and the Great Plains.”

1-1-2017 ~ Waniya Locke, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
“I came to help. I came home to help, because I want to protect the future. And part of protecting our future is learning our language. So Lakota language is the essence of who we are; it’s the spirit of who we are. You can strip a person of food and clothing, and even their spirituality and they’ll be okay. But once you strip a person of their language, they lose everything. They lose all their identity. They lose their connection to their land, to their ancestors, and to their own relatives. So Lakota Revitalization was a path that was found for me. It wasn’t something I went out seeking. I fell into language, and I ended up being really good at it, and all these doors unlocked for me to become a language teacher.

I teach 140 students a day. They come through my classroom forty minutes a day, every day, Monday through Friday. So I teach five classes a day, Monday through Friday to 140 students. And we revitalize the language. We actually speak in our language. But language is the foundation of everything. So that entails our stories, entails our history, that entails our spirituality, our songs and our dance. Lakota language is really vital to who we are. A lot of people don’t realize this; there’s four prongs that make the people sovereign. You have to have people. You have to have land base. You have to have culture. And you have to have a language. And that’s according to the United Nations, in order for people to be sovereign. If one of those prongs is missing, like language, then we can lose our sovereignty rights. And that’s really vital to who we are.”

Heart of Standing Rock… Patty Porter, Colville Confederate Tribes – Paddled 250 miles down the head waters of the Missouri river to the Oceti Sakowin Camp.

“We started our paddle from Bismarck, and we came down about 23 – 24 miles. Then the storm hit. We had a massive storm. It was a life altering storm. Some (fellow paddlers) were on the left side of the river that had to get out. Some were way behind that got left and jumped into a cabin. There were like 30 people out of the dug outs in one cabin, and my partner and I were stuck in the middle. And he goes, “Should we turn back?”, and I say, “No, we can’t turn back or we’ll die.”

I told him all we could do is go to the lights. They’re flashing the lights, and our brothers were on the shore flashing lights, and we’re just going. The hail just had to been massive big. We had lightning and thunder all the way around us just hitting. The water was so unbelievable. we couldn’t even see the end of our kayak. We had a massive white out, and I got hit in the eye with a hail and I could hardly see. And we tipped over a couple times, and I was told kayak can’t tip over. Well, we were real close a couple times.

I froze, and all I could hear was my dad, “Holler. Holler!” So I did. To me, it was close. It was real close, and I thought to myself when I froze, “Nobody’s going to come out and save you. You gotta dig, woman.” So I started digging and I could hear my dad, “Holler.” So I did, “Whooooooooo!” I hollered as loud as I could, and I don’t know how many times and we couldn’t even see the lights. That’s how my brothers on shore could know where we were.
The storm of my life.”

One does not sell the Earth the people walk upon Crazy Horse Poem by the – J Grady
This short digital film features a historic moment that happened on the front line against the Dakota access pipeline. On November 5th, 2016 representatives of the Seven Council fires of the Oceti Sakowin gathered to reignite the sacred fire of the resistance camp and establish the “horn” of the nation, a camp layout where 7 lodges are placed in a circle formation.

This moment was marked by the entrance of over 200 horseback Riders and the arrival of 50 runners who traveled over 1,200 miles to Standing Rock from Arizona.

The last time such an event occurred was in the late 1800s! That’s The Power of this movement. That’s The Power of our prayer.

1-1-17 ~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi… If Not a War, What is It?

I had a good friend ask me last night why I use the word ‘war’ when I speak of the events going on around us and the actions we take as we seek a better, healthier place to live. This is someone I know and respect, so I reflected on the question. It is a good question – a valid one. ‘War’ can be a charged word – a word with negative connotations. We chatted a while over this question and then I went to smudge and send my prayers and wishes to Great Spirit.

This morning the question is still with me. I realized 2 days ago I wrote a poem – I Am A Warrior. I post it here since it relates to this discussion. No coincidences my friends. So, I am going to capture my views on this – at least those I currently see – and I invite yours.
I Am A Warrior

I stand up for what I see needs to be changed,
But I do not hate those who disagree.
I speak with conviction about the healing we need,
But I listen to others speak in contrary ways.

For years I have fought for peace and equality,
But I no longer throw rocks – I send prayers.
Those who disagree with me sometimes hate me,
I will not hate back.

Those wishing to silence me will do whatever they can to still my voice.
But I will not be silent – I will speak peacefully, without stop.
When those destroying our planet attack my friends.
I will stand beside them and will not move.

There is a war being waged now for our planet and our lives.
They fight with bullets and hoses and corrupt laws.
I fight with words and love and trust.
So that we will reach our true potential as humans.

They are haters.
I am a warrior.
A spiritual warrior. A peaceful warrior.
I fight in peace with those ready to stand with me.

We are warriors.
~ Jim Graywolf Petruzzi

Here is some of what I responded to the question:
It is a war – a peaceful revolution. But I don’t want people thinking we can just pray and all will be good. Creator wants to see actions, which he/she can then put energy towards. Likewise the ancestors – angels, prophets, whatever name – do nothing until we pray, act and ask for help and guidance.

I was taught this by many different cultures and have seen it hold true. War does not have to be negative nor have only negative connotations. This definition for example – “a struggle or competition between opposing forces or for a particular end”

What other word will stir people awake? The conflict within self of the light and dark wolf is also called the war of the self.

We have envisioned the world of good – the light wolf. Still we need to feed that wolf so the dark wolf, who has been dominant for so long, becomes the lesser part of us.

Thanks for bringing back these teachings to me and reminding me of those who shared them with me long ago.

When I do ceremonies, teachings, sound healing, spiritual work I exist in a place of light – all light. When I am in a spiritual activist role I am helping move us to the light. Part is by recognizing the dark and the struggle we now have.

Standing Rock is a great example. Many of the elders and leaders speak of this battle in a larger war. The war is Water is Life. Then they go on to speak as I am – this is a new war and we are peaceful warriors.

When I work with and speak to children my whole energy and word use shifts. Not younger or less mature – more light. They do not need to be awakened and motivated. They are.

Some images need to be before us so we can make the changes needed.
Here are two others that give me pause:
* Cutting the head off of the black snake
* Letting the Phoenix die so she can rise

Based on the wishes of the elders and leaders at Standing Rock and elsewhere for peaceful protests I think we should discuss the use of our words as well as our actions. If there is a better word to guide us – let’s find it.

Thanks for hearing me.

1-1-17~ Robert Ferguson... Paid Water Protectors. Did you know in almost every town there are people paid to protect your drinking water? They work at the places that draw water from either the ground or a surface source and then filter the water to make sure it is drinkable. Then there are a multitude of other government employees who work as environmentalists to ensure the surface and groundwaters do not become too polluted. In most cases these employees do a good job. Not so much in Flint or Corpus Christi. … Anyway, for most of the time these water protectors are left alone to do their jobs without much fanfare. But on occasion they find problems that lead back to some industry saving money by allowing pollution to enter the environment, and then their bosses can get real ugly. It pays to learn who in your area is a paid water protector and let them know you appreciate their efforts and are willing to Stand with them when they feel the need to expose pollution or even potential pollution. They will thank you and the water you save together might be your own.

12-31-16 ~ Penny Fruth…. I leave my basement door open as shelter for animals who might need it. This morning, before sunrise, I heard a hen sing out her death cry and ran downstairs. I saw the hen, still squatted down, waiting for the next blow. I looked and saw a large owl. I spoke calmly to the owl and tried to herd it toward the open door where there was only darkness. The owl wanted to go toward the light and kept crashing into walls. Finally, after much reassurance, the owl flew into the darkness and found the wind that lifted him up.

The owl is a powerful symbol that relates to the Water Protectors and the Seventh Generation. It is a strong symbol of transformation that often comes through darkness, not light. Just as the owl preferred the light, but finally realized he needed to go to the dark; the Water Protectors’ bravery and endurance have led them to go into the dark, with no assurance of success. Through their courage and perseverance, they are bringing light to the darkness and I am grateful. Thank you.
