It is mind blowing to see that people don’t realize that Phillips is a full grown adult man that walked up and started pounding a drum in a 15-year old minor’s face and then lied about it to America. He has no problem ruining these kids lives. It is extremely disturbing.

There were no events on the president or vice president's schedule, but they both just made a surprise trip to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington.

((What's an "elder," btw? Are any JOM people "elders"?))

An old person in any organization?
I guess I'm an elder, I'm 60.

Anyway, I'm sick of the list of adjectives that try & make the harassing liar into a sympathetic figure.
An elder?.... ::spit:: ...WHO CARES.
I don't want to hear that he is Native American, indigenous, an 'elder', a vet, a whatever....seriously, Who cares?

He's a sick bastard. He's a leftist activist that was trying to slander & hurt some high school kids that came to STAND UP for LIFE.

With so many things coming back in style, I can’t wait till loyalty and morals become a trend again..


So now Yarmuth is claiming his call for banning teens from wearing MAGA hats was a joke.



"Are any JOM people "elders"?"

Nearly all, I would think.


I loathe the "elder" BS, too, Janet.

This story makes me sick. Kudos to those kids for their restrained behavior and point me to the GoFundMe.

What's really awful is that now the March For Life, after having been mostly ignored for 45 years, will now be a prime target. There will be a zillion provocateurs next January trying to repeat. All because of this activist asshole Nathan Phillips and his fellow brownshirts on the left.


WALSH: 4 Lessons We Can Learn From The Despicable Smear Campaign Against The Covington Catholic Students | Daily Wire

4) Someone is going to get killed.

On a related note, it's only a matter of time before a victim of a media-led smear campaign winds up dead. What will the inciters and orchestrators of the outrage mob say then? "We had no idea it would come to this"? Yes, you did. When you put a person's name and face out there, and you tell the world an outlandishly false story about them, you are lighting a match in a forest full of dry leaves. If somebody finally burns, it's your fault. I can only hope, when that terrible day comes, that at least a few of the smear merchants will go to jail.

In the meantime, and to hopefully stave off this tragic eventuality, we need some ethical and generous lawyers to come to the defense of the victims, pro bono, and sue the defamers and inciters into oblivion. News outlets that run defamatory and libelous reports about innocent people should face severe financial consequences. Celebrities like Kathy Griffin, who encouraged her fans to retaliate against the high school boys, should be bankrupted by lawsuits. None of this has anything to do with free speech. It's libel. It's illegal. And that's how it should be treated.

"What's an "elder," btw? Are any JOM people "elders"?"

is any definition or explanation based on any tribe's designation going to satisfy?

and when it comes to elderhood---- old and wrinkled usually qualifies. and even if they are senile, wet-brained, or just plain goofy, they are still afforded a respect from those of us who recognize that tradition.

doesnt automatically make them shaman, healers, chiefs,spokespeople for their people, wise or all-knowing.

it just means that we show them respect for having made it through what has likely been a shitstorm from day 1, especially if they are rez injuns.

Old Man f*cked himself yesterday with a supremely ignorant misuse of his medicine. the drums that go into protest marches desacralize "the ancient Drum" and its Keepers. the righteous anger of those bearers has putrified into sacrilegious misuse of things sacred.

that's on Old Man.

he'll be dealt with in ways he'll regret.

he executed his plan based on his thoughts and emotions that day.

it was not his to do.

he will find out how real that constraint is soon enough.

i've known men who misused medicine and ceremonial trappings, even entire ceremonies, who died from unspeakable diseases and/or catastrophes that one wouldn't wish on their worst enemies.

Old Man will be in the news saying something like "i was called to do what i did." yeah. but no one else heard that phone ring, did we. just because ya can don' mean ya should. period.

"...and hell followed with him."


A happy story:





The "elder" has a 501(c)(3) scam going on and provokes these incidents to fill his cash register.

i hope you enjoyed two scoops of everything, Jane. :D


Not yet OL. I figure it will be a week before I can safely brag. My scale's been away but typically I go down about 3 than up 2 than up two than down 4, so it takes a while. It all works out. You will see fireworks when it happens.

(Thanks for asking - I think)

thanks in advance.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Ria Megnin - January 17 at 7:38 PM

One of my friends told me about a powerful lesson in her daughter's high school class this winter. They're learning about the Salem Witch Trials, and their teacher told them they were going to play a game.

"I'm going to come around and whisper to each of you whether you're a witch or a normal person. Your goal is to build the largest group possible that does NOT have a witch in it. At the end, any group found to include a witch gets a failing grade."

The teens dove into grilling each other. One fairly large group formed, but most of the students broke into small, exclusive groups, turning away anyone they thought gave off even a hint of guilt.

"Okay," the teacher said. "You've got your groups. Time to find out which ones fail. All witches, please raise your hands."

No one raised a hand.

The kids were confused and told him he'd messed up the game.

"Did I? Was anyone in Salem an actual witch? Or did everyone just believe what they'd been told?"

And that is how you teach kids how easy it is to divide a community.

Keep being welcoming, beautiful people. Shunning, scapegoating and dividing destroy far more than they protect. We're all in this together.

Add the renewed "paedo priests" trials in all 50 states to that list.



Exactly what we were discussing earlier:

When the stories are promptly debunked by the emerging alternative media, the Resistance journos move shamelessly to the next cycle and repeat. While Trump ridicules them and calls them to return to the higher ideals of their profession, they suffer no consequence for their incompetence and dishonesty.


KK, from a friend who lives there and has worked with native Americans in the area. Apparently the NGO is supposed to mentor young people and it doesn't. If you can dig up more on this, send it to the IRS for an investigation,

Interesting take on health insurance and ACA... too bad they couldn't get it passed last year. Evers will veto.

Old Man is not a hapless target of racial animus.

He's got quite a track record of fighting his way for his people.

and given my inside knowledge of the culture wars "business" he's received substantial funding as a producer, subject, and speaker.

it's how he makes his living.

that makes everything he says coming out of his mouth *suspect*. and using ceremonial trappings at protests SACRILEGIOUS.


a skewed account of the DC imbroglio is included.

great story, Stephanie.

some of us might remember the documentary of an Iowa school teacher's lesson with her class on prejudicial treatment based on "eye color."

The Trent Telenko guy Surber was quoting was the same guy who wrote the Xanatos Gambit oped that clarice linked the other day. Wonder if Surber reads this blog?


Yeah, it was a rather 4D-ish article.
I liked the reasoning. Clear, direct connections.
