Twitter -- Not All Critics are Russian Hackers

Twitter setting dangerous precedent of police state

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Twitter now believes that you are "un-American" and a Russian with a fake account, if you criticize Trump or the Clintons.
Meanwhile, Censored News links have been blocked by Twitter since September of 2016, when we first exposed police violence at Standing Rock, with photos of police and Dakota Access Pipeline security.
Also in 2016, Censored News posted Hillary Clinton's dragnet of Indigenous activists, as she spied on activists, everyone from the Mapuche in Chile, to the Mohawks in Canada, as revealed in Wikileaks State Department data link when Clinton was Secretary of State.
Censored News also published Hillary Clinton's ties to arms deals, and Bill Clinton's deals for uranium mining on Indigenous lands globally, with money flowing back to the Clintons, as exposed by a hacker of the Clinton Foundation.
Censored News isn't a Russian hacker. In fact, we couldn't hack our way o…

In an egregious act of a private corporation paying for police brutality, Dakota Access Pipeline gives North Dakota $15 million
By Brenda Norrell Censored News
Dakota Access Pipeline has given the State of North Dakota $15 million for bringing in police who carried out excessive force to ensure the construction of its pipeline at Standing Rock. Those police and National Guard -- orchestrated by Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier and TigerSwan mercenaries -- shot peaceful water protectors with rubber bullets and tear gas, blasted them with water cannons in freezing temperatures, beat them, and imprisoned them in dog cages with numbers written on their arms as was done by the Nazis. Now, in an egregious act of a corporation paying for the abuse of peaceful protesters, and the violation of their civil and human rights, which resulted in serious injury, the State of North Dakota has received its payoff from the private corporation Dakota Access Pipeline, owned by Energy Transfer Partners …

By International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee Censored News Dear Friends and Family, I want to thank you for all the generous donations that have come in for Leonard’s legal team, almost 9,500 dollars in the last 2 weeks. It is wonderful and shows what we can do to help Leonard’s lawyers to move forward. Which means we must continue to raise funds to make this happen. I want to share with you part of the strategy the lawyers have put together to gain Leonard’s freedom! From the desk of the attorney: “Release _There are three paths to consider in an effort to obtain Leonard’s release. The first is a renewed petition for habeas corpus on the grounds that Leonard’s incarceration is unconstitutional. There are many obstacles here, both legal and logistical. New grounds (not previously raised in any appeal) would have to be discovered to be able to file a petition that is meritorious and would be considered by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. As a practical matter, locating the compl…

Indigenous Demand Answers -- Three Years since 43 Students Vanished in Guerrero

Image
For those of us on the Zapatista caravan through Mexico, there was no question that in the State of Guerrero there was a power, a fierceness, like non other. On our bus, the Sonoran bus, with O'odham, Yaqui and Mayo, there was a young Nahuatl warrior from Guerrero. He hopped on one leg, with a stick cane in one hand. When the call for "security" rang out, he rushed to the front line. I asked him why he had came, he said, "There was no food in our village." Now, years later, those forces in Mexico, co-opted and empowered by the United States government in their drug enterprises and fake media drug war, have attempted to squelch that power. But in doing so, they have only given birth to a new generation of warriors. -- Brenda, Censored News https://bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2017/09/indigenous-demand-answers-three-years.html

Response to Navajo Times article, "Men Protest Fracking Near Buffalo Pass"

By Bobby Leonard Mason
Censored News

Buffalo Pass/Roof Butte, 9/21/17
First of all, WE, are not protesting. To protest is to make a statement expressing disapproval of something. Believe me, we are way beyond protest. What we are doing, in our heart and spirit, with prayer, is protecting the land and our relatives, which means to keep them safe from harm or injury; to restrict by law access to or development of (land) so as to preserve its natural state; by all means necessary.
Let’s be clear about this, my intentions, before you go getting the story twisted, are to get the voice of our local elders heard. We want to create a platform where we can all voice our opposition. We are the ones who are living (dying) with the consequences of these extraction methods. If scientific proof is what you want, I urge that assessments be done with more studies to follow. Also, look to the methane cloud, 2,500 sq. miles…
