    FEDERAL INDIAN POLICY: “MOM ALWAYS LIKED YOU BEST!”

    Written by  Elaine D. Willman

    It’s 83 years late in coming, but at long last the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 (IRA) is finally getting its first-ever review, and hopefully serious reform. IRA (48 stat. 984) forms the backbone of federal Indian policy across the country and has been extended, expanded, and abused far beyond the original intent of Congress.

    In order to understand IRA and its major impacts on America, let me share an analogy. Imagine an American household with a single mom and a couple of sons, Johnny and Jimmy. One day Mom calls the family together to make an announcement. “Johnny, you were here first; Jimmy you were here second. Therefore, Johnny, you are more valuable and important than your brother. And Jimmy, you have intruded upon Johnny’s room, his life and his world, so a big chunk of everything you earn from now on and forever will be given to me, Mom, and I will redirect your earnings to Johnny. You really don’t belong here, Jimmy, because you were here second.”

    This is exactly what has been happening in our country for 83 years. Since the Tribes (Johnny) tell the government (Mom) that they were here first, the non-tribal inhabitants (Jimmy) have become second-class citizens.

    The mantra foisted upon Americans for decades is, “We were here first; you stole our land.” Neither is true. But even if it were true, the response as of 1789 should have been, “So what?” That was the way of the world in the 1600s under the Doctrine of Discovery. Life changed on this continent in September 1789.

    One could hardly call the poor souls arriving on the Mayflower and other ships to establish a new life on this continent, conquerors. They had fled religious oppression under a tyrannical king, and were seeking liberty, religious and individual freedom. These were the seeds that became the Great American Experiment. But for that “transgression,” apparently, Americans are to be forever damned.

    In my analogy, Mom is our Mother Country. Imagine that Mom’s folks come to visit their grandsons and discover the new household rules. Mom’s folks, representing our Founders, would be astonished. The seeds planted in the early 1600s by arrivals from Europe gave birth to the Framers of our Constitution and our republican form of government. Regardless of historical decisions, some right, some wrong, the reality is that the United States of America, as of September 1789, is our government, inclusive of the now 50 separate and sovereign states. Revisionist history has been common practice for far too long, but the actual reversal of history occurring today is the slumbering thunder creeping across this country.

    There is no tribal sovereignty recognized in the U.S. Constitution, but such sovereignty (just like Jimmy paying perpetual debt to Johnny) has acquired a power beyond the Constitution’s declared sovereign authority of individual citizens and states. States such as Washington, Montana, Idaho, and some Midwestern states have continually relinquished their state authority in deference to all tribal whims. Many states have created de facto “trust” relationships with tribes where none existed; only the federal government has a court ordered (but not constitutional) “trust” relationship with their “dependent wards — Indian tribes.”

    Johnny’s governments (tribes) may directly finance political parties, incumbents, or candidate election officials. Jimmy’s government may not. Johnny’s businesses are all tax-exempt and growing enormously. Jimmy’s businesses are taxed to the max. Johnny’s government members can hold elected office anywhere across the country, passing land use and taxation laws upon Jimmy that do not apply to Johnny. Johnny has priority over most of the river and water systems throughout the Western states because Johnny was here first, and Jimmy’s needs don’t matter — he shouldn’t exist.

    There is a wondrous Statue of Liberty in New York harbor that welcomes all to come, as the early Jamestown settlers, legally to the United States. We are a country forged and thriving by “intruders” from all over the world. Our republican form of government does not classify those who were here first as superior, nor does it distinguish a priority between the person naturalized yesterday as a full American citizen and the child born here five minutes ago. But federal Indian policy requires perpetual debt and shame for all who came second.

    And now we take a deeper look at the Indian Reorganization Act and its impact on the lives of American citizens. In 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Carcieri v Salazar that IRA was intended to reorganize only those tribes on existing reservations and “now under federal jurisdiction” in June 1934. There were only some 65-70 actual Indian reservations in the United States in 1934. Therefore, the IRA was to reorganize only those 65-70 tribes, and no more. The Carcieri ruling was a political earthquake.

    The Department of Interior and Bureau of Indian Affairs have not just reorganized reservations in existence in 1934; they have federally recognized a current total of 567 tribal governments, each acquiring and expanding their reservations, each receiving tax exemptions, and each receiving money from Jimmy (“second-class” citizens).

    The response to Carcieri under the Obama administration was to utterly ignore it, along with other Supreme Court rulings where the High Court rolled back tribal governing authority, replacing state sovereign authority.

    The good news is that on June 22, 2017, the Department of Interior published a “Notice of Regulatory Reform” with an open public comment period on the Indian Reorganization Act (IRA) and four other major federal statutes. The Notice reads: “This document also provides an overview of Interior’s approach for implementing the regulatory reform initiative to alleviate unnecessary burdens placed on the American people.”

    No doubt Johnny’s 567 tribal governments and the entire Indian industry will be weighing in with their comments to legitimize and further expand decades of IRA unauthorized overreach.

    This is our very first opportunity to truly confront the erroneous and detrimental policies that one ethnicity that was here “first” is superior to all others in this country because all other ethnicities are intruders on this continent, and that communalism, socialism, and tribalism is preferable to individual liberty.

    It is imperative that states, counties, towns, and Jimmy — who lives within an Indian reservation — describe their “burden” at this time. If Jimmy stays silent, Jimmy’s wallet will continue to be annually poached for the expansion of tribalism as a governing system, replacing our constitutional republic form of government.

    Please get your comments on the record to the Department of Interior in one of two ways:

    1) Submit comments to the federal “eRulemaking Portal,” www.regulations.gov. In the Search box, enter the appropriate document number (DOI-2017-0003-0002). Or,

    2) Mail a hard-copy of your comments to: Office of the Executive Secretariat, ATTN: Reg. Reform; U.S. Department of Interior; 1859 C Street NW. MailStop 7328; Washington, DC 20240.

    All other Americans are up against 567 tribal governments with 400 more waiting in the wings for their recognition (not “reorganization”). How long must Jimmy owe his older brother who was here “first” and who seldom says “thank you,” and never says “enough”?

  • Hyper-globalization by Hook or by Crook?

    Starting were I left off on my last post, in the beginning, the 2001 preface was redefining globalization.

    THE CHANGE IN THE ROLE OF NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS (INCLUDED NEUTRALIZING THE POWER AND THE SOVEREIGNTY OF  U.S.A.) IS THE MOST EVIDENT IN THE CASE OF THE WCD.

    2001 IN THE END, THE ISSUE WAS NOT AND IS NOT ABOUT DAMS.

    Most of the critical reaction was expected. The report represented a significant departure from traditional thinking on the role of large dams in WATER and energy development.It introduced several considerations that were not previously given much weight in decision-making. This will take some getting used to.

    WE THE PEOPLE of The United States government,  have witnessed a three-way migration of the authority-voluntary or INVOLUNTARY-once vested in US:

    The upward migration to supranational structures WITH FUNCTIONS ONCE VESTED  SOLELY THE UNITED STATE GOVERNMENT, WE THE PEOPLE,  such as the European Union (“EU”), the International Monetary Fund (“IMF”), or the World Trade Organization (“WTO”);  and outward migration to the GLOBAL market, corporations, and elements of civil society.

    WHY PRIVATIZED PROFITEERING ARAMARK is bring in FOREIGN VISA WORKERS from NIGERIA, INDIA, PAKISTAN, ROMANIA etc. And taking jobs away from American citizens in a very small communities in WA State?

    Ever wonder why the federal government would be allowing hundreds of foreign refugees to work in a relatively small town in Idaho?  including all of the above but not limited to, and for other purposes? Wonder no more. Many of them end up working in the world’s largest yogurt factory.

    THE HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?  (AN INSIDE JOB?)

    In April 2011, the EPA, under the Barack Obama administration, proposed a new set of guidelines to replace the two issued under the Bush administration. These guidelines formed the basis of what became the Clean Water Rule. In contrast to the manner in which the 2003 and 2007 guidelines were issued, THE EPA AND THE USACE CONDUCTED PEER-REVIEWED HYDROLOGICAL STUDIES, INTERAGENCY REVIEWS, AND ECONOMIC ANALYSES BEFORE PUBLISHING A FORMAL PROPOSED RULE ON APRIL 21, 2014.[12][15]

    On May 27, 2015, after a public comment period and numerous meetings with state entities, public and private stakeholders, then-EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy along with Assistant Army Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy signed the Clean Water Rule, set to become effective in August of that year 2015.[1]

    THE GLOBAL HOOKS AND THE CROOKS?

    THIS ARTICLE IS 3 YEARS OLD The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim saidTHE WATER ISSUE IS CRITICALLY RELATED TO climate change. People say that carbon is the currency of climate change. WATER IS THE TEETH. FIGHTS OVER WATER AND FOOD ARE GOING TO BE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DIRECT IMPACTS OF climate change in the next five to 10 years. There’s just no question about it.

    The president of the World Bank Jim Yong Kim said ,DO WE HAVE A PLAN? ‘What do you mean a plan?’ I said a plan that’s equal to the challenge. A plan that will convince anyone who asks us that we’re really serious about climate change, and that we have a plan that can actually keep us at less than 2C warming. We still don’t have one.DO WE HAVE A PLAN? THE ANSWER, three years ago  WAS NO.

    DID THE WORLD BANK JUST GET LUCKY?

    Two years later the World Bank had a Global plan. Thanks to Obama and his appointed Administration WOTUS BY RULE.

    The response FROM ONP….

    Hi Pearl

    We don’t have that kind of information for our concessionaires. You’ll need to call Aramark or Lake Crescent Lodge directly.

    SO? LORD ONLY KNOWS WHAT ARAMARK MONOPOLY, IMPORTED FOREIGN VISA WORKERS, HAS DONE  TO LOCAL EMPLOYMENT IN CLALLAM COUNTY WA?

    August 01, 2017 The tip of the LOCAL WA STATE ARAMARK Iceberg.

    August 01, 2017 Interestingly enough I learned today (in an email) that ARAMARK CORP.

GUARANTEED EMPLOYMENT UNTIL OCTOBER.  WOW! 16 JOBS TAKEN FROM OUR DEPRESSED LOCAL COMMUNITY WHERE FEW ARE WORKING. 

    ———————————————————————————–

    August 05, 2017 And,  Interestingly enough, I learned today,  researching on line  there is a new NPS sheriff (Brian Borda) in WA DC.  The old NPS concessioners swamp is being drained including  those who were previously  supported by SENIOR EXECUTIVES (SES Obama’s leftovers)

    ———————————————————————

    ARAMARK GLOBAL MONOPOLY CORP IS A COMMERCIAL SERVICE, A NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE CONCESSIONAIRE.

    AND IT IS POSSIBLE TO GIVE GIVE  A NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE CONCESSIONAIRE THE BOOT.

    The bottom line

    BUT, HOW BADLY, HAVE ARAMARK GLOBAL MONOPOLY CORP’S IMPORTED  FOREIGN VISA WORKERS, AFFECTED AMERICAN WORKERS?
