Should the Energy Transfer Partners Executive’s graves be open to Protest?

According to DailyMail.com, the Vets have arrived at Standing Rock and they have already begun to recover some of the Water Protectors’ stolen canoes from the police. According to the ACLU, Obama’s federal force of National Guards, along with state police from 76 different law enforcement agencies, from 10 different states, have been using many forms of intimidation against Native American residents and Water Protectors alike.

Of the many tactics used (many that we’ve reported already), there are some under-reported tactics that have been reported by the residents of the camp. These include the Police and/or Oil Security stealing, and in many cases, destroying private property. Reports of them committing acts of vandalism on private property and of the theft of many canoes that were on the banks of the Turtle Island burial grounds are beginning to grow.

The same burial grounds that police insist on standing upon right in the faces of their historically marginalized ancestors.

We would never suggest that anyone desecrate any deceased American’s grave sites. One has to wonder how the C-level executives at Energy Transfer Partners (full list found here) would feel if Water Protectors showed up to stand on, and block access to Chairman & C.E.O., Kelcy L. Warren’s parent’s graves. How would President & C.O.O, Matthew S. Ramsey do with this type of insult to his parent’s and grandparent’s final resting places? Ask the Westboro Church about how it made them feel…

An act this brazen might finally get their attention, but this would be stooping to their level. We don’t condone this action, but sticking in hyperbole, this would be the next logical step to showing the super wealthy that they are not untouchable from the rabble, the masses, and the underprivileged, that they resent so much. The police can protect the rich and their property for only so long. Ask the French about that…

The above is a quick video describing the French Revolution, but I have to point out that there is 0 evidence that Marie Antoinette ever said, “Let them eat cake”.

Stay Efin peaceful my friends

​5 reasons the Dakota Access Pipeline is not a State issue but a Federal one Obama is responsible for NOW

1. The treaty that the Sioux tribe has is with the Federal government

2. The Oil police and the pipeline workers are not on ND land. They are on Army Corp/Sioux land. Neither are allowed on that land. Not even the governor without permission.

3. The oil company needs federal EPA permits to drill under the lake and Missouri river. They don’t have it yet and despite it being illegal, they say they are going to do it anyway.

 4. Many of the Oil police are being shipped in from non-local police departments as well as the National Guard. All outsiders from ND affairs.

5. The oil police put razor wire surrounding army corp land where the tribes ancestors are buried. Preventing them from praying on their burial grounds which is guaranteed not only by the treaty, but the 1st Ammendment. Only one of the bill of rights they are violating.

Anything we forgot?

The Corporate Media’s Silence on Standing Rock is About to End

If someone writes a story about the ensuing autocracies occurring in North Dakota, it should elicit feelings of revolution in us all. However, this has not been the case as there has been a concerted effort by the government, and their corporate media cohorts, to protect Big Oil interests. These efforts are now manifesting into civil rights violations of Native Americans and their fellow unarmed Water Protectors. Initially there was silence from cable news, despite there being enough noise to make the President feign interest enough to speak on it. Though, he didn’t really say much of anything. There have been several court challenges and requests to do land surveys before proceeding that were mostly denied to seemingly expedite construction. A treaty for these original Americans to have sovereignty over their land has been changed and ignored so often, they have been all but completely marginalized by the US Government.

With the hope that we would all be so distracted by the elections, or that the cold Dakota winter would end the fight for them. Depending on the same mother nature they insult with their dirty energy to crush the spirits of the few who would show up to defend their water, the Sioux tribe, and their burial grounds. That there would be enough fear of Trump or Clinton winning to keep any white protestors joining the fight. Surely they are too busy complaining about the Electoral College and the Popular Vote to care. Surely they are too scared of the perceived rise of White-Supremacy that the media is legitimizing (much like they did Trump by spreading their messages en masse) to endure the rubber bullets, chemical warfare, hearing damage, grenade explosions, and hypothermia from water cannons. Surely there would be no hardened activists willing to leave their lives for very long in order to stand up to the fascist government thuggery presently endorsed by Obama’s public silence. One has to wonder what his private position is, but a quick peek at his legacy would make it pretty easy to infer.

Who has the stomach for this fight, especially once winter takes hold? Go ahead; violate and intimidate those unarmed “Hippies” and “Indians” with our military equipment and body armor that U.S. veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan are envious of. No one would last long enough for us to have to directly deal with this. Wait it out and the pipeline will already be under the Missouri river. It will be too late to do anything about it. Just wait it out…

Boy did they ever miscalculate while making their assessment of the situation. The oil police, and their federal and local government supporters, just had their worst nightmare occur. A 21 year-old white woman from New York City, named Sophia Wilansky, may end up losing her arm from a police percussion grenade.

This was one of several grenades that were allegedly thrown into a crowd of unarmed and defenseless people. These grenades come with specific warnings from the manufacturer to not throw them at people. There is a disturbing history of SWAT and other police using these explosives, whether intentionally or not, in an incorrect manner leading to several horrible injuries. The most disturbing of which came when a 1 year-old infant who was sleeping in their crib, had one of these land on their pillow during a “no-knock” drug raid in Georgia on Oct. 7th, 2014. Click on one of the links for more details on this, and other injuries caused by these dangerous, explosive devices.

NBC and ABC are starting to wake up a little. Some of the upset Hillary supporters are starting to notice the importance of this event over their recent election loss. Many people on both sides seem to be waiting for Trump to take office. Never mind that President Obama, a supposed Progressive (but actual Wall Street Corporatist), is in charge now; never mind that he kicked the can down the road so that an even more fascist regime will be all that is left to help people. To help them against the very government forces employed to protect the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline at all costs.

Speaking of the new regime, their leader has millions of his own dollars to lose by intervening. Does Obama expect President-Elect Trump to stand up to the oil executives that fund both major party’s campaigns? The same corporate donors who write their own legislation for lawmakers to get passed or else? Nope. This is exactly what his bosses told him to do. Not to mention the crafty political strategy of attempting to ride out the next few months in order to shift the issue (and later, the blame) to the Republicans, is almost certainly by design.
The good news is that there’s now drone footage of the oil police using cannons to cover Water Protectors in freezing water during a night of mid 20 degree weather. This is being shown on some network news outlets, finally. It’s not just TYT Politics covering the event now. It’s not just H.A. Goodman, Tim Black or Mike Efin Brown talking about it. The atrocities are no longer occurring to ONLY the Native Americans.

Get ready for the silence to finally break, but be even more ready for the media to start framing the protesters as violent, hired thugs. They are a voice for the elite. There is nothing more elite in the U.S. than Big Oil.

Get ready to donate to hep the Water Protectors. Be especially ready to put your own body on the line, as this fight will likely not remain contained to the flats, hills and buttes of North Dakota. Be ready for more of this as the new regime takes over.

They will be pumping what seem like willfully ignorant statements like, “AllLivesMatter” while police continue to clash with protesters who have been framed by the media as violent rioting anarchists, while simultaneously ridiculing them as spoiled, whiny liberals without jobs.

Get Ready…The lid is about to blow off.

“The doctor just said she may need as many as 20 surgeries over very many months to have any hope of saving her arm and her hand,” Wilansky’s father, Wayne Wilansky, told a group of reporters outside a Minneapolis hospital.

The Original Declaration of Independence did not contain “Creator”

(much of this text is copied directly from a website built to share the research lead by Jim Allison, a certificated paralegal and historical-legal researcher and writer; and Susan Batte, who is a lawyer and a member of the US Supreme Court bar who practices in Virginia. Both have been involved in the separation of church and state debate, researching and writing extensively on the subject, for several years. The direct link can be found here)

Authors of Research Conclusions:

  • The original version Jefferson wrote did not contain the word Creator.
  • A copy that John Adams wrote in his own hand did not contain the word creator
  • At some point after Jefferson wrote the original draft and before it was submitted to Congress it was changed to the wording with regards to creator that we know today

There are several possibilities

  1. Jefferson changed his mind and reworded it to what we know today
  2. The change was suggested by Adams.
  3. The change was suggested by Franklin.
  4. The change was suggested by both Adams and Franklin.
  5. The change was suggested by one or both of the other two members of the committee of five or all four of them that was given the task of producing this document.

Jefferson wrote most of the text even some of the changes which scholars are pretty sure was suggested by either Adams or Franklin. There are places in the handwriting of Jefferson yet the wording and style sounds more Franklin or Adams than Jefferson

In other places it appears that Adams made some changes in his own hand and perhaps Franklin did as well.

Thus, bottom line, Jefferson’s original draft did not contain the word creator. Sometime between writing that original draft and submission to Congress that wording was changed to the wording we know today

The events that took place between the original draft and submission to Congress were

  • Consultation and submission of the draft to Adams
  • Consultation and possible submission to Franklin
  • Possible consultation and submission to the other two members of the Committee of Five

At least two maybe three revisions to various sections of the Declaration of Independence including this creator section in which the original language was deleted and the current language was inserted in its place, took place before the submission to Congress. Input or ideas from both Adams and Franklin, for certain and maybe the other two were incorporated.

Handwriting is not a reliable barometer since scholars feel that Jefferson probably wrote most of text including some sections that are known to be ideas of one of the others and others wrote sections that might be ideas or suggestions by Jefferson or the others. In addition there are a few places that appear to be in the hand of Adams and perhaps Franklin yet still other sections that scholars just plain have no idea whose hand wrote it for certain. Maybe Jefferson, maybe Adams, maybe Franklin, maybe one of the other two, they just don’t know

The only absolute is Jefferson’s original draft did not include the word creator. No one can say with complete certainty who was responsible for the change and the addition of “Creator.”

Taken from Wikipedia Founding Fathers of United States Which can be found here

Franklin T. Lambert (2003) has examined the religious affiliations and beliefs of the Founders. Of the 55 delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, 49 were Protestants, and two were Roman Catholics (D. Carroll, and Fitzsimons).[18] Among the Protestant delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 28 were Church of England (or Episcopalian, after the American Revolutionary War was won), eight were Presbyterians, seven were Congregationalists, two were Lutherans, two were Dutch Reformed, and two were Methodists.[18]

A few prominent Founding Fathers were anti-clerical Christians such as Thomas Jefferson,[19][20][21] who constructed the Jefferson Bible, and Benjamin Franklin.[22]

Historian Gregg L. Frazer argues that the leading Founders (Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Wilson, Morris, Madison, Hamilton, and Washington) were neither Christians nor Deists, but rather supporters of a hybrid “theistic rationalism

Efin’s conclusions: Keeping in mind that only the conclusions were presented here, extensive research is available on this. I have tried to get you started with the links I provided. These links offer further links to verify its content. Based on all that, the “Creator” line was simply added to impose that man does not give another man his unalienable rights. He is born with them and they can not be taken away by another man. This document assured that would be the new government’s starting point. That these words are so focused on and the rest of the document largely ignored by modern Americans, is the real shame. The document is beautifully written and was approved by a wide range of religious and non-religious affiliations. This was not meant to say that God fought and won independence and our nation’s rights and freedom. Men did that. Founding Fathers known and unknown to us gave us these rights that they felt were unalienable and undeniable from birth.

(Well, only for men; white men; but that revolution came later and is for another time)


The American Abortion Conspiracy

So after watching this video, what do you think? Are legalized abortions part of a conspiracy created by Nixon and his cohorts?

Kitty TinEfin’s assessment: Very unlikely. You could just as easily argue that legal abortions allow wealthy women a chance to reset their life when she makes a mistake. It benefits all instead of insisting that all (or all of a minority) partake. Abortions are not forced and are the result of unwanted pregnancies and not the parental murder of someone’s child because they were compelled by pressure from the government to choose to abort it.

Our focus should be on preventing unwanted pregnancies from before conception. No, I’m not really referring to the failed policies of teaching abstinence in all cases. I’m referring to sex education that is based in reality. Free birth control for all women and/or men that want it. It seems too simple to ignore…but that’s just my opinion.
