Lakota warriors and allies stand in unison against police tonight, Thursday night, Feb. 28, 2013. Oglala President Bryan Brewer, still in a wheelchair after his accident, was present to support the action against the liquor profiteers at the border of Lakota land. President Brewer vowed to shut down liquor stores in the bordertown. Read his statement: http://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2013/03/oglala-president-vows-to-shut-down.html An Idle No More style Round Dance was held during the gathering to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Wounded Knee, “Liberation Day!” As usual, police arrived in force to protect the abusive business practices of the bar owners in White Clay, Nebraska, at the border of Pine Ridge, South Dakota.

Jerry Feaster said, “Remember these cops protect the right of the bar owners to sell alcohol not to protect the members of the community.” “This is Sheridan County Sheriff Terry Robbins (on left.) Sheriff Robbins was accused of being drunk by the Lakota warriors and relatives while performing a round dance on the north side of White Clay, Nebraska. Sheriff Robbins was on duty, operating a state vehicle, and carrying a firearm. Robbins was given a breathalyzer by his own state trooper in front of all community members present at the direct action protest. Robbins passed the breath test, but in my opinion, it was botched.” Protesters said videos posted reveal Sheriff Robbins was slurring his speech.

MNN. Feb. 28, 2013. Political paranoia is being considered a mental disorder. Those who question everything and especially conspiracy theorists, are considered to suffer from political paranoia. Every social disaster or political movement has its loonies: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot. Jim Jones, Duncan Campbell Scott, Steven Harper, Tom Flanagan, Crusty the Clown, Federal Court of Canada, etc. What conditions have to exist before the paranoia is believed? As soon as it appears on mainstream TV or media, everybody believes it. If it s not, they don t believe it. Take the test to see if you are paranoid.

Core Defence Strategy missions are: Conduct daily domestic and continental operations, especially the Arctic; respond to a major terrorist attack; support civilian [law enforcement] authorities in Canada; lead international operations; and respond to crises . Stable predictable funding means A Military in Partnership with Canadian Industry , to extract resources with no interference from the Indigenous owners. Contributing to International Peace and Security and stability abroad means unfettered access to other people s territory and resources. In 2008 Canada budgeted $490 billion for the next 20 years. Defense spending rose by 2% starting in 2011, from $18 billion to over $30 billion in 2027. The Government plans to increase the number of military personnel to 70,000 Regular Forces and 30,000 Reserve Forces. Their Bold Eagle program targets Indigenous youth, especially in the North, to exploit Indigenous knowledge of the land and weaken indigenous sovereignty at the same time.
In 1958 Canada and US formed NORAD. This was right after they blasted our riverside for the St. Lawrence Seaway for the benefit of industries. Since then they set up Canada Command and US Northern Command . Headquarters Failed and failing states, civil wars and global terrorism are being created so that the military can describe the world as volatile and unpredictable . National Defense is the largest property holder in the federal government, which is all un-surrendered indigenous territory. 21,000 buildings over 50 years old and crumbling. 13,500 works including 5,500 kilometers of roads, jetties, training areas, etc. and 800 parcels of land covering 2.25 million hectares will be replaced or fixed up over the next 10 to 20 years. The Strategic Investment Plan is to coordinate all military spending. Canadians, you are the Nazis when you allow the war program to go on unfettered. You are allowing the theft and exploitation of Indigenous natural resources to continue the war problem.

Citizen Groups File to Prevent the Immediate and Irreparable Impacts from the Mount Hope Molybdenum Mine\’ February 22, 2013 by Lisa J. Wolf, Correspondent From a release by the Great Basin Resource Watch Censored News RENO — The Great Basin Resource Watch (GBRW) and the Western Shoshone Defense Project on February 20th filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction in Federal Court in Reno following their filing a February 15th Complaint challenging the decisions of the United States Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approving the Mount Hope Project located some 23 miles north of the town of Eureka.
According to the Motion, The Project will have immediate, irreparable, and permanent impacts to the local ranching and farming communities and families which have lived there since the 1860s and to the critical environmental, historical, cultural and wildlife resources that will be outright eliminated or significantly degraded by the Project. One of the residents in Diamond Valley nearest to the proposed mine said, We own the closest private property to the Project in two directions. Our ranch and farm are located close enough to Mount Hope to be adversely affected by the mining caused imparment of our air, increased heavy truck traffic, and the very real damage to our business from the massive pumping and resulting drawdown of groundwater. Our water is not infinite. Adding to our water over appropriation problem is very wrong. I believe it is wrong to break laws that are in place to protect us, in the name of progress. The Western Shoshone that toured the Mount Hope site in 2007 all agreed that the impacts to the water resources, loss of mature pi on/juniper forest, and destruction of cultural sites to too high of a price for this mine, said Larson Bill, Western Shoshone Defense Project. During the tour Western Shoshone Elder Bernice Lalo of Battle Mountain said, I don t understand this attitude of destruction. Pauline Estevez, Timbisha Shoshone said as we passed a spring, what is important is what is here now … that spring is our ancestor, it is a cultural site.
Angela Davis, Dine\’ writes to the Alamo Council Delegate, regarding sponsorship of lease extension for Navajo Generating Station, one of the dirtiest coal fired power plants in the US. It is fed with coal ripped from the earth by profiteer Peabody Coal, which continues the suffering of Navajos on Black Mesa, to provide electricity for the Southwest while many Navajos go without.
The Honorable George Apachito P.O. Box 827 Magdalena, NM 87825 Dear Delegate Apachito, Yah at eeh. It has come to my attention that you recently sponsored a resolution (004-13) that recommends that the Navajo Nation extend the lease for the Navajo Generating Station. I m writing to urge you to put a hold on voting on this resolution to extend the lease until further study and review by all our tribal delegates. I think more time to decide on the vote can ensure that the Navajo Nation obtain the maximum amount of economic compensation for our natural resources and investments. This involves too many parties (Salt River Project Agricultural Improvement and Power Project, Los Angeles Water and Power, Arizona Public Service, Nevada Power and Tucson Electric Power Company, for example) to make such a monumental decision in the short time frame currently allowed. I understand that there is pressure to vote quickly on the matter from many parties, but I think it is worth the wait to ensure the best outcome for everyone involved, especially our tribe. To me, it seems that outside interest groups, mostly energy companies, will benefit most if the resolution is passed as it is currently written. Although the Navajo Nation stands to receive 43 million dollars annually through 2044 if the deal goes through, I do not think that is enough to justify extending the lease so quickly. If the proposed resolution passes and the extensions are granted without adequate research, we may never know how we could have benefited more and will be indentured to the power companies for decades. I urge you to think about the future generations and how this decision will affect them financially, environmentally and more importantly, health-wise. Investing more money into the dirty, coal-fired plants is not a good decision environmentally, financially, or physically in the long-run. Investing in solar and/or wind energy is healthier, environmentally safer, and technologically efficient. I am aware that there are 538 workers, eighty-three percent of which are Navajo, at the Navajo Generating Station. Keeping their jobs is important and that is why I encourage a smooth, gradual transition from coal mining to solar/wind energy. Perhaps they can still hold their jobs during the transition, especially since the coal industry is dying and other sources of energy are currently being explored. In conclusion, I would like to express my disappointment in you sponsoring this bill. You are my chapter official and I thought you had more of a conscience when it came to the environment and protection of our natural resources, given that you recently opposed uranium mining in the eastern agency. Many people accuse Alamo Navajo of being traitors to our tribe and often refer to us as the enemy Navajo . I think that is really sad. You sponsoring and supporting this bill would truly make us just that — the enemy Navajo; we will be regarded historically as the band of Navajo that does not care about the health of the environment, the fair and honest management of our resources and most of all, our people s health. Let us change that negative view of our people. I know you have it in your heart to do the right thing and withdraw your sponsorship of this bill or at least table the discussion until more research and discussion can be done. Thank you very much for your time. Ahe he he. Sincerely, Angela Marie Davis Artist Writer

|Canada Secret Service on the job.|
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2008 that CSIS, Canadian Secret Intelligence Services, cannot destroy evidence. This happens every day to us about our history, rights, funds and the ongoing genocide of our people. Canada does not respect its own laws. It has a propaganda mill to control the media. It suppresses and rewrites historical facts, trying to make us invisible. Many vital documents are being destroyed. We all have minds, the capacity to see and hear, to think and feel. Every person s ability to sense and understand is important. Each of us has a unique insight to contribute, no matter how big or small. We can t just drift along following orders without thinking or questioning.
|Riel: Execution no longer legal|
The appetites of the colonizers are insatiable. They do not maintain sustainable economies. They depend on the exploitation of stolen non-renewable resources and funds. They are conditioned to want more. Their children are force fed fascism and call it democracy. They have no control over their appetites. Their common sense is shut down. They cannot access the natural principles of self-determination found in the Kaianerehkowa, the law of Great Turtle Island. All the weapons of war belong to the Canadian state. The army and police try to scare people into submission, legal or not. It s not working.
|Indians invited to First Thanksgiving, then all murdered.|
A century ago Louis Riel was hung for treason because he defended Metis rights. Today the death penalty has been banned in Canada. Canadian government officers are trying to implement death sentences by other means such as excessive use of force and extraordinary threats and abuse. Our people are put under so much stress some die in or following custody. Ronald Lasagna Cross was so badly beaten by the SQ and military he died not long after the Oka Crisis of 1990. Matt Fisher was killed in Whitehorse prison while being held on fake charges. The Officer beat him to death in the cell until he died. He thinks he got away with it. Canada gives its agents a license to kill Indigenous people with impunity. South Africa, Nazi Germany and other totalitarian regimes have followed the Indian genocide model of Canada. Everything they did to us here they are now doing to the general population because they think they got away with it. Thahoketoteh wrote a song about his murdered brother.

MNN. Feb. 24, 2013. Special agents such as the CBSA Canadian Border Services Agents are trained in psychological warfare and state brutality. They wear black fascist uniforms with Kevlar vests. They try to humiliate, demoralize and injure those who question and complain about mistreatment. According to Wikileaks, PRC methods devised by the US are designed to confuse, destroy and terminate. Low level psychological warfare is mixed with high tech violence on target groups, like Indigenous, followed by the homeless, welfare, pensioners and then the general population.
|Discussion on how to kill|
The US Department of Defense Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces manual describes 3 types of insurgency. The third, Traditional Insurgency , refers to Indigenous resistance. Onkwehonwe are engaged in centuries of resistance to regain full sovereignty. We are dangerous criminals and are harassed at border crossings. The manual allows the suspension of habeas corpus. They can kidnap and disappear us without notice or right. CBSA can force a confession. PRC measures also include curfews, blackouts, travel restrictions, and restricted residential areas such as protected villages or settlements , like Indigenous communities, refugee camps, detention centers, prisons and FEMA Camps that can hold millions of people. They maintain Registration and pass systems and control of resources and critical supplies such as weapons, food and fuel.
When we defend our land, the military poiice use: Checkpoints, searches, roadblocks; surveillance, censorship, and press control; restriction of activity of selected groups [like Indigenous, labor unions, political groups and the like]. We are classed as members of organized crime and fake charges are filed against us to create assumptions. When one resists or questions, a profile is created with their background, car model, family and associations. The file is flagged red, green or yellow. Any adherents to the Great Law are classed as high risk or extreme . Agents are sent to the School of the Americas where death squads are trained. Another deadly Special Forces strategy is infiltration of communities. Agents gather information about individuals and disseminate demoralizing and false information to cause suspicion and divisions. Since the COINTELPRO of the 70s in the US against A.I.M., many have become aware of DISINFORMATION campaigns. They get turncoats to train the military and police in their work against us. When we are arrested, we are handed over to the RCMP, CSIS, SQ, CBSA, OPP and the new Provincial Organized Crime Enforcement Team POCET set up June 25, 2008. OPP POCET
The integrated enforcement teams of cops, correctional services, parole officers, social services, informants, courts and other controls, are a fine example of state organized crime. They breach peoples rights, freedoms and lives. The Indian Act corporate band and tribal councils are part of the hierarchical control grid. They feign resistance but in fact sign over Indigenous jurisdiction to their masters, to get their paycheck. As Axel Rose from Guns and Roses sang : Look at your young men fighting. Look at your women crying. Look at your young men dying, the way they ve always done before. Look at the hate we re breeding. Look at the fear we re feeding.

MNN. Feb. 24, 2013. Indigenous children are being murdered. Hundreds of girls and women are disappearing. We have to guard ourselves and each other. Take cameras, cell phones, become a witness and make good notes. We need names, badge numbers, videos and photos of the abused and abusers. Then we should file complaints, take them to court and put pressure on politicians. The police and politicians work together to continue the illusion of freedom in the police state we are living in.
Cops are the worst abusers. In Northern British Columbia Human Rights Watch has documented that RCMP are the perpetrators of attacks and rapes on girls and women. In Thunder Bay Ontario the Mayor admits to his role in racism as if it s normal. Watch out for agent provocateurs. They dress like us, with backpacks and vehicles full of implements. They are really cops! Agent provacateurs at G20 Montebello They start throwing these at our kids and then disappear. Cops are attracted to violence. They don t need peace to keep their jobs. Some try to stir things up so they can use all the expensive toys they claim to need. A despicable tactic is to target and attack young women. This provokes otherwise peaceful men to come to their aid who are then beaten and arrested. They say peace can be gained by violent means. Like George Orwell says in 1984 , Peace is war! .
The highly trained people like doctors, miners, scientists, politicians, military and corporation heads need relative order in their communities to go about their jobs of stealing our water, energy and resources. They need the Onkwehonwe out of the way. In guerrilla warfare our great strength is when we are on our home turf. We know it and we feel the power that comes from being truly Indigenous. Colonists come from fragmented backgrounds. Their leaders have a program of low level warfare by attacking, harassing, taking prisoners, surrounding us, putting out bad stories about us to scare the public.
**Our persistence and perseverance comes from our ancestors. We are so well-rooted with nourishment from the land. A transplant s root has to adjust for a long time to gain strength from the earth, but sometimes the roots don t easily take. Sometimes transplants need a stick to help them stand up. The colonists program is to replace the natural people. The natural world has decreed that we shall always be here doing our job, taking care of the land, plants, animals, water and air.

MNN. Feb. 22, 2013. How to steal our consent. According to court rulings and international law, our view and consent are required for any legal use of our land, resources and funds. The racket is to make it look like they got our consent. The ambulance chasers [lawyers] are trained to build a hall of mirrors. When consultation goes on, they make sure we do not hear, see or say anything. Three Monkeys Strategy .
We are overrun by chasers. The bureaucrats, politicians and corporations are trying to fill their ambulances with suffering Indigenous people whom they have maimed. Shysters chase us to represent us. Then meetings are held behind our backs with their mentors and clients on how to avoid consulting us or to twist what we ve said.
The bar associations hold seminars to train these chasers on how to help industry, government and Indigenous stakeholders to consult us without actually talking to us. We only find out what we supposedly agreed to when we are told to move away because industry needs the minerals under our community. These teach-ins are attended by chasers, CEOs, VPs, directors, managers, mining, forestry, environment, energy and constitutional law breakers, litigators, negotiators, mediators, bureaucrats, and the Vichy collaborator band and tribal councils. They learn Tips and Traps to watch for in their meetings with us. They are told what to avoid: meetings organized by us; meetings in our community; full advertising of the meeting; bringing our own experts; spending too much time in the community to avoid seeing our realities; making scientific evidence available to show the reality of pollution of our land, communities, water and housing; no time lines; full assessment of the consequences of development for the generations to come; letting everyone talk besides those on the band council payroll; allowing grassroots traditionals to define the issues [that s really dangerous!].
They want to shut us up. They go through the motions. They re told to always act like they re in a big hurry [to hit the jackpot]. When we say no , it s no, and they have to accept it. They can t start openly or covertly confusing, threatening and undermining us to get their way. The Crown has a fiduciary duty to take our advice on investment of our Indian Trust Funds and to report fully to us, the beneficiaries. They can t avoid their responsibilities to us without going to jail. As Chuck Berry sang in Too much monkey business Same thing every day.
