The price tag for the cost of police to fight the protesters is small in comparison to the cost of cleaning up an oil spill.
With the steady stream of protesters pouring into the area around the Dakota Access pipeline demonstration near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, state and county officials are asking North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple for financial assistance.
Native News Online reports that Governor Dalrmple issued an emergency declaration for southwest and south central North Dakota.
The GROWING crowd of protesters come and go as they are able, but estimates range from 1500-4000 total protesters at this time.
People from as far away as California have come to show they support what is best for the people and they DO NOT support the Dakota Access pipeline.
GREG WIZA, NORTH DAKOTA’S DIRECTOR OF THE HOMELAND SECURITY DIVISION OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EMERGENCY SERVICES HAS PUT A PRICE TAG BETWEEN $750,000 TO $1,000,000 FOR THE EXTRA POLICE FORCE, BARRICADES AND PORTABLE TOILETS. HE SAID THE FIGURE COULD TOP $1,000,000 IF THE DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUE BEYOND A FEW WEEKS.
Native News Online also states, “The governor’s declaration allows local county and state officials to seek extra funding that is required to operate their “security” measures of overseeing the demonstrations that have been peaceful in nature since they began on Thursday, August 11, 2016.”
Even though there were false accusations by police about pipe bombs (With protesters referring to pipes which are used to smoke herbs), Dakota Access security officials stated they have no evidence that any weapons, such as guns or pipe bombs have been part of the demonstrations.
Native News Online also reports that “The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe had its day in court at the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, and now has to wait for at least two weeks for a ruling from U.S. District Judge James E. Boarsberge.”
Even an extra million dollars spent by tax payers now will be just a drop of water in the river compared to what people will have to pay after an oil spill. The protests are expected to continue at least until the ruling comes forth.

There is a lot of news and opinion on the internet these days about how to rouse the American people and others around the world to somehow take notice of their situation and demand solutions to some of the immense problems we all face. You cannot arouse a people who have been poisoned I am afraid. It is much to late when that point arrives. I have noticed that countries like France as well as Brazil are now set to ban the poisonous GMO corn introduced by Monsanto. Americans seem willing to continue consuming this monstrosity. Below I have enumerated on just a few problems, mankind faces as a whole. Some of this seems to have given rise to a certain stirring among nations and a drive for independence.
Some of us have noticed that BP after poisoning the Gulf of Mexico and a large amount of America’s seafood has been given the right operate once again. The consequences of which have now resulted in a tar sands oil spill in the Great Lakes. The Lake Michigan Whiting refinery has spilled oil into the Lake due to a “glitch”. Just how many more glitches are we supposed to survive? The beach near Chicago is now said to have a contaminated area of some 2700 feet. Officials say there are no reports of damage to wild life or ill effects. (We are always so lucky aren’t we?) More tar sand oil is being shipped down from Canada, a country that so far is reporting less cancer frequency than the United States.
This is not the first time in Lake Michigan either.
Horror stories abound which have been craftily covered over by the six corporations which own the media. The leak into the Kalamazoo River sometime back was given little play and it certainly also was related to tar sand oil. the Kalamazoo River flows into Lake Michigan. It makes little sense to further pollute such a large body of water with talk of future water shortages emerging, unless, …. unless the people around these areas are going to be considered expendable. Perhaps it is all related to Agenda 21.
For anyone who thought the Gulf oil spill was over and done with, I have bad news. Submerged oil mats are now floating up to the beaches near Pensacola, Florida. This oil is still seeping from cracks in the thin mantle of the Gulf and has not been sealed as we were lead to believe. Some suggest however much of it could have dissolved by natural bacteria without the use of deadly corexit which simply made it disappear under the surface. This chemical is not allowed to be used in Europe, but is fine for the United States. In fact you do not even want to discuss anything of substance with sports fans, they will classify almost anything as a conspiracy due to their limited vision. You will find them much more worried over who is recruited to fill a spot on their favorite sports team than the survival of the planet itself. This is the time we find ourselves in. It is sometimes referred to as thus:
Sometime around 23 hundred years ago we see in the Mahabharata Ydhishthira has a vision of the age to come: I see the coming of another age, where barbaric kings rule over a vicious, broken world, where puny, fearful men live tiny lives, white hair at sixteen, copulating with animals, their women perfect whores, making love with greedy mouths. The cows dry, trees stunted, no more flowers, no more purity, ambition, corruption, the age of Kali, the black time.”
VANTAGE — A massive crack in a major Columbia River dam poses enough of a risk of dam failure that Grant County authorities have activated an emergency-response plan. But utility managers are lowering water levels a total of 20 feet because they fear the structure otherwise could endanger inspectors trying to get a better handle on how seriously the dam is damaged.
The 65 foot crack in the dam is a serious problems as down below this area lies the Hanford Nuclear project which is very large and some are indicating it also is on the verge of collapse.
Emergency plan activated after ‘massive’ crack found in dam near nuclear site — Official: ‘Serious problem’; Failure risk ‘sufficiently high’ — NOAA: “Potential for rapid increase in flows” — Gov’t: Flooding could release radioactive waste from Hanford (VIDEO)
TV: More workers rushed to hospital at U.S. nuclear site — 17 sickened in past week — Former Employee: “It’s pretty scary… to have this many in 8 days is really abnormal” — Company: We’re trying to understand what’s happening.
Wednesday occurred in yet another location at the Hanford site […] Sources tell the reporter 17 people were working on the video inspection when three were suddenly sickened by the release of vapors.
This area is home to Mount St. Helens a volcano which erupted some years ago. There is a saying among the Bear tribe that when sister speaks, (Mount St. Helens) Big Brother soon answers. That would be Mount Rainier one of the largest strato-volcanos in the world. This area is home to many volcanos, such as Mount Baker, Mount Hood and others. Good night and good luck. It seems weekly now we hear of increased activity around the Yellowstone super volcano. If this one goes the situations listed here will be seen as minor as the United States would be looking at catastrophic consequences. Talk of getting control of the money and foreign policy would become moot issues. The same might be said of the New Madrid fault, which by the way is said to go about every 200 years and is way over due. There was also a recent 4.4 earthquake under Los Angeles. Something slightly larger would simply mean a tragedy of epic proportions we could only speculate about.
“A Slow Genocide of the People”: Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land”
The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon’s popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. “It’s really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it’s estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines,” Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.
South Central US Poisoned by New Mexico Nuke Garbage Dump
Enough to Kill 35,5000 People Released so Far
Black Smoke from Plutonium Fire at Nuke Garbage Dump Source Current Argus
The Carlsbad Bomb making garbage dump is on fire. The burning radioactive metal does not go away, it turns to dense black radioactive smoke. The black smoke is very obvious in the daytime and it streamed from several ventilator shafts during a fire at the dump two weeks ago.
We are seeing various stirrings around the world where various segments are seeking realignment. Most of us know about the Crimea. Venice however has recently voted to break away from Italy. A small island known as Spruce Island is seeking a return to Russia under legal request as it was given to the Russian orthodox church many years ago and contains a monastery and about 250 people. It is said to be 47 kilometers wide. Some reports indicate that 18000 signatures have been collected in Alaska to join the Russian customs union also. There are also stirrings that parts of Moldova are seeking the same as well as the Eastern sections of the Ukraine. There is lots of uncertainty out there. A reported 16,000 Ukrainian soldiers out of 18,000 have now switched over to the Russian side as well as the Crimean Dolphins who are trained to patrol the Black Sea for underwater attacks.🙂
Mayor Aysen Nikolayev and other officials from Russia’s Far Eastern Federal District have petitioned President Vladimir Putin, the heads of both chambers of the Russian Parliament, and the Russian Foreign Minister requesting the return of Spruce Island to the church.
Researchers from Yakutsk went to the Alaskan capital Juneau to study the archive belonging to the Russian bibliographer Mikhail Vinokurov who emigrated to the USA in 1917 after the Bolshevik revolution. They discovered a certificate issued by Russian government commissioner Captain Second Rank Aleksey Peshchurov, detailing the transfer of Russian territories in Alaska to the United States. According to this document, Spruce Island has been granted to the Russian Orthodox Church ‘for eternity’.
President Obama recently gave a briefing in Europe, but nobody clapped.
The pope meets with Obama and from most pictures we see both are smiling like a mule eating briars and two executives working for the same company. They are to discuss immigration among other things but that is a mute issue in America as nobody can now be deported under new guidelines. The program seems to be replace existing Americans for others more suitable to the global shakers. I assume this will include native americans also. No word on whether or not Obama bowed to show obeisance or slid in on his chest baseball style.
Russell Means wasn’t kidding with the parting words, welcome to the reservation!
“They should have given him a few whacks with some “Made in Hanoi” bamboo sticks (haha!). McCain is no friend of Native Americans or Asians.” ~ Wayne Madsen
In a stunning action that was long overdue, a group of native Navajo Americans chased Senator John McCain out of the Navajo Nation capitol of Window Rock — making it perfectly clear he was unwelcome in the first place.
