Oil Police to Begin Blocking Life-Sustaining Supplies Meant for NoDAPL Water Protectors

Ring of Fire online has the latest from the DAPL Pipeline protests.

In addition to intimidation tactics being carried out by North Dakota officials and by the Army Corp of Engineers, on Tuesday, the state announced that it was ordering its police forces to begin blocking the incoming supplies necessary to sustain the individuals occupying the Dakota Access Pipeline protest.

No, it’s not bad enough that peaceful protesters are being attacked by police, doused in near freezing water in below freezing temperatures and pelted with rubber bullets, teargas, and mace – they must also be literally starved out, according to N.D. officials.

On Monday, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple signed an “emergency evacuation” order which demanded all occupants of the NoDAPL protest leave immediately. An additional element of this so-called emergency evacuation was explicit instruction that law enforcement should turn away any and all supplies meant for the camps, including food and medical supplies.

The main focus of this order was on incoming building supplies, as officials can technically claim that the land the water protectors are occupying are not zoned for permanent structures. But the order didn’t include a block on just building supplies – according to the governor, not a grain of rice or a single band-aid is to pass through the roads to the waiting protesters.

May I remind you that these are innocent, peaceful protesters, many occupying the land that was promised by the U.S. government to their ancestors? If a single person is harmed or killed thanks to a lack of food or other resources, that is nothing short of state-sponsored murder.

It is clearer than ever now that the state of North Dakota has absolutely no interest in the safety or liberty of these assembled protesters. The state has already spent millions fighting these peaceful protesters on behalf of a delinquent corporation. They have injured, maimed, and hospitalized protesters for their corporate buddies – will they kill for them too?

North Dakota state officials on Tuesday backed away from plans to block supplies from reaching protesters at a camp near the construction site of an oil pipeline project after the governor’s office said no such action was planned.

Activists have spent months protesting plans to route the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline beneath a lake near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, saying the project poses a threat to water resources and sacred Native American sites.

Earlier on Tuesday, Maxine Herr, a spokeswoman for the Morton County Sheriff's Department, said food, building materials and other supplies would be blocked from entering the main camp following Governor Jack Dalrymple's "emergency evacuation" order on Monday.

However, a spokesman for the governor told Reuters on Tuesday afternoon that no such action was planned. "There is not going to be any blockade of supplies," said spokesman Jeff Zent.

Following Zent's comment, Herr said law enforcement would take a more "passive role" than a enforcing a blockade. Officers would instead stop vehicles they believed to be heading to the camp and inform drivers that they were committing an infraction and could be fined $1,000.

"That is the understanding that we had initially but we had to get that clarified. The governor is more interested in public safety than setting up a road block and turning people away," Herr said by telephone.

Here Are 50 Proposals From The 2016 Republican Platform. This Is Their Agenda

Little stands in the way of this happening. Here is a list by Steven Rosenfeld at Alternet.org of 50 excerpts from the 2016 Republican Platform. This is their agenda my friends.

Most voters have heard enough about Donald Trump’s plans for the presidency, but what about the rest of the Republican Party?

The GOP 2016 platform would make Christianity the official American religion, English the official American language, replace sex education with abstinence-only advice for teenagers, privatize almost all areas of federal services, cut taxes and regulations for the rich and titans of industry, and impose a belligerent foreign policy and military build-up.

Here are 50 excerpts from the 2016 GOP platform.

1. Tax cuts for the rich: “Wherever tax rates penalize thrift or discourage investment, they must  be  lowered. Wherever current  provisions of the code are disincentives for economic growth, they  must be changed… We propose to level the international playing field by lowering the corporate  tax rate to be on a par  with, or below, the rates of other industrial nations.”

2. Deregulate the banks: “The Republican vision  for American  banking calls for establishing transparent, efficient markets where consumers can obtain loans they need at reasonable rates based on market conditions. Unfortunately, in response to the financial institutions crisis of 2008-2009, the Democratic-controlled Congress enacted the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, otherwise known as Dodd-Frank.”

3. Stop consumer protection: “The worst of Dodd-Frank is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, deliberately designed to be a rogue agency. It answers to neither Congress nor the executive, has its own guaranteed funding outside the appropriations process… If the Bureau is not abolished, it should be subjected to congressional appropriation.”

4. Repeal environmental laws: “We call for a comprehensive review of federal regulations, especially those dealing with the environment, that make it harder and more costly for Americans to rent, buy, or sell homes.”

5. Shrink unions and union labor: “We renew our call for repeal of the Davis-Bacon law, which limits employment and drives up construction and maintenance costs for the benefit of unions… Although  unionization  has  never been permitted in any government agency concerned with national security, the current Administration has reversed that policy for the Transportation Security Administration. We will correct that mistake… We support  the right of states to enact Right-to-Work laws and call for a national law to protect the economic liberty of the modern workforce.”

6. Privatize federal railway service: “Amtrak is an extremely expensive railroad for the American taxpayers, who must subsidize every ticket. The federal government should allow private ventures to provide passenger service in the northeast corridor. The same holds  true with regard to high-speed and intercity rail across the country. We reaffirm our intention to end federal support for  boondoggles like California’s high-speed train to nowhere.”

7. No change in federal minimum wage: “Minimum wage is an issue that should be handled at the state and local level.”

8. Cut government salaries and benefits: “The taxpayers spend an average of $35,000 a year per employee on non-cash benefits, triple the average non-cash compensation of the average worker in the private sector. Federal employees receive extraordinary pension benefits and vacation time wildly out of line with those of the private sector.”

9. Appoint anti-choice Supreme Court justices: “Only a Republican president will appoint judges who respect the rule of law  expressed within the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, including the inalienable right to life and the laws of nature and nature’s God, as did the late Justice Antonin Scalia.”

10. Appoint anti-LGBT and anti-Obamacare justices: “Only such appointments will enable courts to begin to reverse the long line  of activist decisions — including Roe, Obergefell, and the Obamacare cases—that have usurped Congress’s and states’ lawmaking  authority.”

11. Legalize anti-LGBT discrimination: “We endorse the First Amendment Defense Act, Republican legislation in the House and Senate which will bar government  discrimination against individuals and businesses for acting on the belief that marriage is the union  of one man and one woman.”

12. Make Christianity a national religion: “We support the public  display of the Ten  Commandments as a reflection of our history and our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage and further affirm the rights of religious students to engage in voluntary prayer at public school events and to have equal access to school facilities.”

13. Loosen campaign finance loopholes and dark money: “Freedom of speech includes the right to devote resources to whatever  cause or candidate one supports. We oppose any restrictions or conditions that would discourage citizens from participating in the  public square or limit their ability to promote their ideas, such as requiring private organizations to publicly disclose their donors to the government.”

14. Loosen gun controls nationwide: “We support firearm reciprocity legislation to recognize the right  of  law-abiding  Americans to carry firearms to protect themselves and their families in all  50  states. We support constitutional carry  statutes  and  salute  the  states  that  have  passed  them. We oppose ill-conceived laws that  would  restrict magazine capacity or ban  the  sale  of  the  most  popular  and  common modern rifle.”

15. Pass an anti-choice constitutional amendment: “We assert  the  sanctity  of  human  life  and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the  Constitution  and  legislation  to  make  clear  that  the  Fourteenth  Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.”

16. End federal funding for Planned Parenthood: “We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned  Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide healthcare.”

17. Allow states to shut down abortion clinics: “We condemn the Supreme Court’s activist decision in Whole  Woman’s  Health v. Hellerstedt striking down commonsense Texas laws providing for basic health and safety standards in abortion  clinics.”

18. Oppose stem cell scientific research: “We  oppose  embryonic stem cell research. We  oppose  federal  funding  of  embryonic  stem cell research. We support adult stem cell research and urge the restoration of the national  placental stem cell bank created by President George H.W. Bush but abolished by  his Democrat  successor, President Bill Clinton. We oppose  federal  funding  for  harvesting embryos and call for a ban on human cloning.”

19. Oppose executive branch policy making: “We condemn the current Administration’s unconstitutional expansion  into  areas  beyond  those  specifically  enumerated,  including  bullying  of state and local governments in matters ranging from voter identification (ID) laws to immigration, from  healthcare  programs  to  land  use  decisions,  and  from  forced  education  curricula  to  school  restroom policies.”

20. Oppose efforts to end the electoral college: “We oppose the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact  and  any  other  scheme  to abolish or distort the procedures of the Electoral College.”

21. Require citizenship documents to register to vote: “We support  legislation  to  require  proof  of  citizenship  when  registering  to vote and  secure  photo  ID when  voting. We strongly oppose litigation against states exercising their sovereign authority to enact such laws.”

22. Ignore undocumented immigrants when drawing congressional districts: “In order to  preserve  the principle of one person, one vote, we urge our elected representatives to ensure that citizenship, rather than mere residency, be made the basis for the  apportionment of representatives  among the states.”

23. No labeling of GMO ingredients in food products: “The  intrusive  and  expensive  federal mandates on food options and menu labeling should be ended as  soon as  possible by a  Republican  Congress. We  oppose the mandatory labeling of genetically modified food, which has proven to be safe, healthy, and a literal life-saver for millions in the developing world.”

24. Add work requirements to welfare and cut food stamps: “Nearly all the work requirements for able-bodied adults, instituted by our  landmark  welfare  reform  of  1996,  have  been  removed. We  will  restore  those  provisions  and,  to correct a mistake made when the Food Stamp program  was  first  created  in  1964, separate the  administration  of SNAP  [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program] from the Department of Agriculture.”

25. Open America’s shores to more oil and gas drilling: “We support the opening of public lands and the outer continental shelf to exploration and responsible production, even if these resources will not be immediately developed.”

26. Build the Keystone XL Pipeline: “The  Keystone  Pipeline  has  become a symbol of everything  wrong  with the current  Administration’s  ideological approach. After years of delay, the President killed it to satisfy environmental extremists. We intend to finish that pipeline and others as part of our commitment to North American energy security.”

27. Expand fracking and burying nuclear waste: “A  federal  judge  has  struck  down  the  BLM’s rule on hydraulic fracturing and we support upholding  this  decision.  We  respect  the  states’  proven  ability  to  regulate  the  use  of  hydraulic  fracturing,  methane  emissions,  and  horizontal  drilling,  and  we  will  end  the  Administration’s  disregard  of  the  Nuclear  Waste  Policy  Act  with  respect to the long-term storage of nuclear waste.”

28. No tax on carbon products: “We oppose any carbon tax… We urge the private sector to focus its resources on the development of carbon capture and sequestration technology still in its early stages here and overseas. ”

29. Ignore global climate change agreements: “The United  Nations’ Intergovernmental  Panel  on  Climate  Change  is  a  political  mechanism,  not  an  unbiased  scientific  institution. Its  unreliability  is  reflected  in  its  intolerance  toward  scientists  and  others  who  dissent  from  its  orthodoxy. We  will  evaluate  its  recommendations  accordingly. We reject the agendas of both the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement, which  represent  only  the  personal  commitments of  their   signatories; no such agreement can be binding upon the United States until it is submitted to and ratified by the Senate.”

30. Privatize Medicare, the health plan for seniors: “Impose no changes  for  persons  55  or  older.  Give  others  the  option  of  traditional  Medicare  or  transition  to  a  premium-support  model  designed  to  strengthen  patient  choice,  promote  cost-saving  competition  among  providers.”

31. Turn Medicaid, the poor’s health plan, over to states: “Moving to a block grant approach would allow for state  and  local  governments  to  create  solutions  for  individuals  and  families  in  desperate  need  of  help  in  addressing  mental  illness.  We  respect  the  states’ authority and flexibility to exclude abortion providers from federal programs such as Medicaid and other healthcare and family planning programs so  long  as  they  continue  to  perform  or  refer  for  elective abortions.”

32. No increasing Social Security benefits by taxing the rich: “As  Republicans, we oppose tax increases and believe in the power of markets to create  wealth and to help secure the future of our Social Security system.”

33. Repeal Obamacare: “Any  honest  agenda  for  improving  healthcare  must  start  with  repeal  of  the  dishonestly  named  Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare.”

34. Give internet service providers monopoly control: “The President ordered  the  chair  of  the  supposedly  independent  Federal  Communications  Commission  to  impose  upon the internet rules devised in the 1930s for the telephone monopoly… The  internet’s  free  market needs to be free and open to all ideas and competition  without  the  government  or  service  providers picking winners and losers.”

35. Make English the official U.S. language: “We both encourage the preservation of heritage tongues and support English as the nation’s official language, a unifying force  essential  for  the  advancement  of  immigrant  communities and our nation as a whole.”

36. No amnesty for undocumented immigrants: “Illegal immigration endangers everyone,  exploits  the  taxpayers,  and  insults  all  who  aspire  to  enter  America  legally.  We  oppose  any form of amnesty for those who, by breaking the law,  have  disadvantaged  those  who  have  obeyed it.”

37. Build a border wall to keep immigrants out: “Our highest  priority, therefore,  must  be  to  secure  our  borders  and  all  ports  of  entry  and  to  enforce our immigration laws. That  is  why  we  support  building  a  wall  along  our  southern  border  and  protecting  all  ports  of  entry.  The  border  wall  must  cover  the  entirety  of  the  southern  border  and  must  be  sufficient  to  stop  both  vehicular  and  pedestrian  traffic.”

38. Require government verification of citizenship of all workers: “Use of  the  E-verify  program — an internet-based system that verifies the employment authorization and  identity  of  employees—must  be  made  mandatory  nationwide. We reaffirm  our  endorsement of the SAVE program —Systematic  Alien Verification for Entitlements—to ensure that public  funds  are  not  given  to  persons  not  legally  present in this country.”

39. Penalize cities that give sanctuary to migrants: “Because ‘sanctuary cities’ violate federal law and endanger their own citizens, they should not be eligible for federal funding. Using state licenses to reward people in the country illegally is an affront to the rule of law and must be halted.”

40. Puerto Rico should be a state but not Washington DC: “We  support  the  right  of  the  United  States  citizens of Puerto Rico to be admitted to the Union as a fully sovereign state… A [D.C.} statehood amendment was soundly rejected by the states when last proposed in 1976 and should not be revived.”

41. Support traditional marriage but no other families: “Children raised in  a  two-parent  household  tend to be physically and emotionally healthier, more likely to do well in school, less likely to use drugs and alcohol, engage in  crime  or become  pregnant  outside of marriage. We oppose policies and laws that create a financial incentive for or encourage cohabitation.”

42. Privatize government services in the name of fighting poverty: “We call for removal of structural impediments which progressives throw in the path of poor people: Over-regulation  of  start-up  enterprises,  excessive  licensing  requirements,  needless  restrictions  on  formation of schools and day-care centers serving neighborhood families, and restrictions on providing public services in fields like transport and sanitation.”

43. Require bible study in public schools: “A  good understanding of the  Bible  being  indispensable  for the development  of  an  educated  citizenry, we encourage  state  legislatures to  offer  the  Bible in a  literature  curriculum as an elective in  America’s  high  schools.”

44. Replace traditional public schools with privatized options: “We  support  options  for  learning,  including  home-schooling,  career  and  technical  education,  private  or  parochial  schools,  magnet  schools,  charter  schools,  online  learning,  and  early-college  high schools.”

45. Replace sex education with abstinence-only approaches: “We renew our call for replacing ‘family  planning’  programs  for  teens  with  sexual  risk  avoidance  education  that  sets  abstinence  until  marriage  as  the  responsible  and  respected  standard  of  behavior.  That  approach— the  only  one always effective against premarital pregnancy and  sexually transmitted  disease—empowers  teens  to  achieve  optimal  health  outcomes.  We oppose  school-based  clinics  that  provide  referral  or  counseling  for  abortion  and  contraception  and  believe  that  federal  funds  should  not  be  used  in mandatory or universal mental health, psychiatric, or socio-emotional screening programs.”

46. Privatize student loans instead of lowering interest rates: “The  federal  government  should  not  be  in  the  business  of  originating  student  loans.  In  order  to  bring  down  college  costs  and  give  students  access to a multitude of financing options, private sector participation in student financing should be restored.”

47. Restore the death penalty: “The  constitutionality  of  the  death  penalty  is  firmly  settled  by  its  explicit  mention  in  the  Fifth  Amendment. With  the  murder  rate  soaring  in our great  cities,  we  condemn  the  Supreme  Court’s  erosion of the right of the people to enact capital punishment in their states.”

48. Dramatically increase Pentagon budget: “Quite simply, the Republican Party is committed to rebuilding the U.S. military into the strongest on earth, with vast superiority over any other nation or group of nations in the world.”

49. Cancel Iran nuclear treaty and expand nuclear arsenal: “We  should  abandon  arms  control  treaties  that  benefit  our  adversaries  without  improving our national security. We must fund, develop, and deploy a multi-layered missile defense system. We must modernize nuclear weapons and their delivery platforms.”

50. Reaffirm support for Israel and slam sanctions movement: “We reaffirm America’s  commitment to Israel’s security and will ensure that Israel maintains a qualitative military edge over any and all adversaries…We reject  the false notion that Israel is an occupier and specifically recognize  that  the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS) is anti-Semitic in nature and seeks to destroy Israel. Therefore, we call for effective legislation to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons or entities doing business in Israel or in Israeli-controlled territories, in a discriminatory manner.”

With Trump Win All Branches Of Federal Government Now Under Control Of Republicans

With the results of the 2016 Presidential Election it's time to look at what this means for the US.

Speaker of the House, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin will be one of the most powerful men in the world. He will control the agenda of this now mostly one party system. All branches of of the US government will now be in Republican control including the US Supreme Court. There is a vacancy on the court and now that will be filled by Republicans without Democrats standing in their way.

Another thing to consider are the cuts that are planned under the already proposed Ryan spending budget. Perhaps some of these things need to be unfunded and shut down but it's hard to believe that Ryan and his cohorts have actually examined the repercussions closing all of these programs will have on the economy and peoples lives.
 compiled by Bowsite.com

From their site the list of programs to be shut down:

* Corporation for Public Broadcasting Subsidy -- $445 million annual savings. * Save America 's Treasures Program -- $25 million annual savings. * International Fund for Ireland -- $17 million annual savings. * Legal Services Corporation -- $420 million annual savings. * National Endowment for the Arts -- $167.5 million annual savings. * National Endowment for the Humanities -- $167.5 million annual savings. * Hope VI Program -- $250 million annual savings. * Amtrak Subsidies -- $1.565 billion annual savings. * Eliminate duplicating education programs -- H.R. 2274 (in last Congress), authored by Rep.

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT? * Prohibit taxpayer funded union activities by federal employees -- $1.2 billion savings over ten years. * Sell excess federal properties the government does not make use of -- $15 billion total savings. *Eliminate death gratuity for Members of Congress. WHAT??? * Eliminate Mohair Subsidies -- $1 million annual savings. *Eliminate taxpayer subsidies to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change -- $12.5 million annual savings. WELL ISN'T THAT SPECIAL

* Eliminate Market Access Program -- $200 million annual savings. * USDA Sugar Program -- $14 million annual savings. * Subsidy to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) -- $93 million annual savings. * Eliminate the National Organic Certification Cost-Share Program -- $56.2 million annual savings. *Eliminate fund for Obamacare administrative costs -- $900 million savings. * Ready to Learn TV Program -- $27 million savings.. * HUD Ph.D. Program. * Deficit Reduction Check-Off Act. *TOTAL SAVINGS: $2.5 Trillion over Ten Years.

So in conclusion, I see this new Republican alignment and takeover as a chance for our representatives to part out and sell off parts of our commons. Our water, lakes, national parks, our rivers, the minerals under our private land. Forget about the ACA or Obamacare. It's over. If you are dependent on that for your health, you will be subject to their plan which is only to get rid of the plan you have. They have no plan.

If they had their way, they would or have suggested that they privatize Amtrak, the post office, our prisons, police, our infrastructure, our social security ( Hillary also had a plan for this one), our enforcement agencies like the EPA, IRS, FDA, USDA and it's inspectors,  parts of Homeland Security, the air traffic controllers and other commons that are currently owned buy us, collectively as US Citizens.

The only thing that I can see that stands in the way of the Republican plan set forth by Ryan would be his own party members and Donald Trump himself with his veto pen.

Public Forum About California Homeless Bill of Rights and Right To Rest legislation Nov. 5th.

Press Release/Media Alert

Eureka- Affordable Homeless Housing Alternatives and the Western Regional Advocacy Project (WRAP-www.wraphome.org) will host a public forum about the California Homeless Bill of Rights and Right to Rest legislation, Saturday, Nov. 5.  At 3pm the public forum and discussion on proposed California Legislation for a Homeless Bill of Rights next year will be presented at the Labor Union Hall 840 E Street, Eureka,.

Other California communities have ordinances like Eureka’s no-camping ordinance that, when enforced, routinely criminalize homelessness. In Eureka there are far too few shelter beds for those in need. With no other choice than to rest, sleep, eat and perform other life-sustaining activities in public spaces, people who are homeless are often cited and fined or even arrested and jailed. Police records then make it harder for people to gain employment and housing.

Paul Boden, Director of WRAP will talk about how the California Homeless Bill of Rights and Right to Rest legislation can eliminate criminalization, which the U.S. Justice Department is calling unconstitutional and "cruel and unusual punishment." (www.wraphome.org).

AHHA invites the public to join them at the Labor Union Hall, where Paul will be a featured speaker and talk about how to move affordable housing forward.  AHHA and folks living rough in Eureka will outline the current situation of residents who have no legal place to be in Eureka, and their proposals for sanctuary camp to tiny house villages as solutions.

The new AHHA Campaign for funding Tiny Houses for homeless in Villages will be announced, and a kick-off to raise $100,000 to secure property and manifest Eureka’s first Tiny House Village.  More information on the AHHA Campaign for Land and Villages in Humboldt County is available at www.ahha-humco.org. This Campaign will create good looking villages for folks now living in the rain, and solve the community problem of folks only option of roaming and living on the streets.

This important Forum for Humboldt County can make a difference by creating spaces that are safe, warm, and dry first!, until affordable housing is created. And, AHHA will announce a solution the community can participate in to bring folks out of the rain and off the streets through development of sanctuaries to tiny house villages.

For further information, contact Nezzie Wade 267-4035, now1@suddenlink.net

Paul Boden (Executive and Organizing Director) became homeless at the age of 16. He began volunteering at a drop-in shelter in San Francisco in 1983, eventually becoming a program director there and worked as a case manager in a supportive hotel program for mentally ill people. Paul served as Executive Director of San Francisco’s Coalition on Homelessness for 16 years and was a founder of the Community Housing Partnership, a nationally recognized permanent housing corporation with optional supportive services. Paul was also a board member of the National Coalition for the Homeless and co-chair of its civil rights and grassroots organizing workgroup. He has received dozens of community city/ county of San Francisco, State of California, and the Congress of the United States awards. Paul regularly writes articles and op-eds and travels throughout the country giving talks and trainings.  He now leads the Homeless Bill of Rights Campaign in California, Colorado, and Oregon  www.wraphome.org

What many doctors think about cancer, and how they are required to treat it

This is the first part of 9 in which doctor after doctor discuss the failed war on cancer and why we are failing. Could it be a lack of treatment offers available to the official medical establishment?

And good luck sharing this on facebook. I was unable to do that tonight which is why I am posting this on my blog which is hosted by google.
Update: Facebook seems to just be having troubles tonight. 

US Senator Joe Liberman, WTC 7 Did Not Occur
