"Rocks the White House?"

They just passed and allowed
fracking, drilling of the Arctic
which also, mind you, puts the
Native Indigenous Arctic Peoples
in harm and genocide of
the Indigenous Arctic Environment.

The "administration" has not
vetoed the wars against our
Mesopatamian brothers and sisters
and Indigenous, but continue to
conquer and divide ... which,
in ancestral terms, affects all of us. What happened to
We are related? This "administration" has done more
damage and incurred and started
more wars not just here on homelands, but overseas,
than previous ones. What
about NDAA - detention and
unconscientable murder of innocent Americans, passed by
Soetero and ignoring constitutional rights?
Drone wars on Yemen women,
men and children, Afghanistan?

something is wrong here ...
Support Electoral Reform
(Robert D. Steele ... and clean
out the "House" and fraudulent administrations for good.

This is just political propaganda to deflect the United Nations demand that the United States cease and desist the genocide against indigenous peoples. So they gave somebody an award the same day they sold off sacred lands to foreign corporations. Are we so easily distracted that a bit of fluff, a piece of paper mounted in a frame, means more than the life of the land we live on?

(wow, thanks only ed and CN for publishing this, UNCENSORED!, aho.)

another reason why First Nations
cannot remain silent anymore:

we are related. attempted genocide
has no distinction nor favors,
one Tribe/Clan/Homeland is affected, it affects
all the other in the web of life,
thread of life ... in ancestral

Do First Nations remain silent
on Drone Strikes and Drone Genocide
or be part of healing the karma (cause and effect) and taking a
Stand - from within
that stand, we start to set free past
samskara and things begin to liberate for and of the
First Nations, Indigenous
sisters and brothers everywhere open.


Drone Genocide Upon Indigenous Pakistani,
Afghanistani, (previously) Yemeni People and will Americans/Turtle Island
be the next target?


""At least six people have been killed in a US assassination drone strike in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region near the border with Afghanistan.

The strike reportedly targeted suspected militants in the Zoye Narye area of North Waziristan on Monday, Pakistan's Dawn News reported.

According to a report prepared by Pakistani lawmakers, as many as 2,199 people have been killed and 282 others injured in the US drone attacks in Pakistan over the past decade.

Additionally, nearly 210 houses and 60 vehicles were reportedly damaged by the strikes. However, rights activists say Islamabad has not revealed the actual number of the deaths, which many believe stand at more than 3,000 and possibly as many as 4,000.

This is while the Pakistani government has been widely censured for allowing the US military and its CIA spy agency to carry out the illegal drone strikes near the country’s border with Afghanistan as part of its targeted killing campaign in a number of Muslim countries, including Yemen, Afghanistan and Somalia.

The aerial attacks, initiated by former US President George W. Bush in 2004, have been escalated under President Barack Obama, who has defended the use of the controversial drones as “self-defense.”

Washington claims the targets of the drone attacks are anti-US militants. People on the ground, however, dispute the claim, saying civilians are usually the victims of such attacks.

Moreover, The United Nations and several human rights organizations have identified the US as the world’s number-one user of “targeted killings,” largely due to its drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan.""
