Native American tribe kicks TransCanada trucks with KeystoneXL supplies off their reservation

Published

on

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Police escorted off the reservation a truck belonging to the company building the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, KELO-TV reported Tuesday.

“The head of a South Dakota Tribe says Keystone XL workers are not welcome on the reservation,” the station reported. “Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Police got a report of pipeline workers in Eagle Butte Monday night. Tribal officials say officers immediately escorted them off the reservation.”

Harold Frazier, the chairman of the Cheye River Reservation, blasted TC Energy — the company formerly known as TransCanada — in a statement.

“Any vehicles or personnel working on the Keystone XL pipeline are not welcome on this reservation,” Frazier said.

“Unlike the United States we welcome free speech and concerned citizens standing up for the law. This is Sioux Territory, we will not stand for more encroachments and defilement of our land,” he promised.

“I would like to thank the tribal members who brought this to our attention and stand with them in our opposition to the KXL pipeline,” Frazier added.

All of Oregon's Republican state senators walked out of the Capitol last week and fled to Idaho to end debate on a climate change bill, but that's just the latest extreme measure they've taken as the GOP loses power there.

Minority parties have walked out before in several states to deny a quorum -- Oregon Republicans did the same thing in May, to kill vaccine legislation -- but the difference this time is the threat of violence, reported The Daily Beast.

WATCH: Here’s the secret to dissecting Trump’s chaotic distractions

Published

on

In an extended examination on MSNBC, host Ari Melber took a hard look at how President Donald Trump creates almost daily distractions for the media and the public to keep the focus off his multiple scandals and to make it look like he is doing something -- when all he is doing is creating controversy for controversy's sake.

Put simply, Melber explained, the president's tweets out some plan he has no intention of implementing, hypes it up for days -- then drops it like it never happened.

Using Trump's aborted attack on Iran as a jumping off point, Melber -- and his panel -- explained that Trump's style of governing is based on "head fakes" and "bluffs."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
