Most Censored: US tragic fictional theater before UN Human Rights Council

By Brenda Norrell Censored News English and Dutch The United States is like that pretty girl in high school that thrives on her own self-promotion. But eventually the stardom wanes, the wrinkles take over, and well, its all down hill from there. The US has a partner in self promotion at the United Nations, an ally in its cheerleading to distract from its human rights violations. Its fellow chum is Saudi Arabia, oozing in oil dollars and with an abhorrent human rights record. Both the US and Saudi Arabia want you to believe that they are standard bearers for human rights. Saudi Arabia even wants to head the UN Human Rights Council. Of course the rest of the world sees clearly through both the US and Saudi Arabia, and their strange relationship. The rest of the world sees through the theater of these two countries before the UN Human Rights Council. It is theater — tragic fictional theater. During the recent United States Periodic Review at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, there we

Rotinoshonni territory is being inundated by two opposite longhouse concepts, kaia nereh:kowa and Handsome Lake. As the faithkeepers says: Stay peaceful & pray! kaia nere:kowa, is the law of the land of Great Turtle Island, based on the basic thought and knowledge in how a people relate to the universe.

PLANET OF THE CLANS Posted on May 27, 2015 Please post & distribute. Nia:wen. MNN. May 27, 2015. The clan system will lead to the peace. Women s power is natural. Their role emulates the earth from whom we get our life and energy. Women s power was ignored by the invaders to cut our natural tie to the land and to steal it. Artificial clans were created known as political parties. Men were put at the head based on the corporate hierarchical model of the Vatican. Family trees should follow the mother, not the father. The clan system cannot be monetized. The corporate party system monetizes everything. The 1% get more from our mother, while the 99% are deprived.
