  • Who Was Christopher Columbus? ~ Hero or Villain? Criminal or Crusader?

    Each year, the media narrative assures us, more Americans are ditching the archaic holiday known as Columbus Day. After all, they claim, what's the point of celebrating a man who brought destruction to the noble and advanced indigenous civilizations of the Americas that lived in harmonious symbiosis with nature? Why glorify a man who introduced the slave trade and who actually didn't discover anything except a brilliant civilization that was already thriving? Rather than celebrate Columbus, many would now prefer to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day. I assume this would be a new holiday created by modern-day myth-builders of the Liz...
  • Why my American Indian tribe voted Republican in NC's special election

    The result of Tuesday’s special election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District didn’t take many political analysts by surprise. Republican Dan Bishop was predicted to win the district, which had been in Republican hands since 1963. But it may surprise analysts to know that my people, the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, proved crucial to Bishop’s victory. They shouldn’t be surprised. The Lumbee are culturally conservative, church-going and entrepreneurial. And more and more of us are distressed by the leftward lurch of the Democratic Party. SNIP Lumbee are educators, ministers, business owners, farmers, soldiers, doctors, engineers, professional athletes and still...

    A Massachusetts university has decided to take down a historical mural after students complained that the paintings depicting only white men eroded the school’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Tufts University stated in a news release that the Alumnae Lounge mural, which depicts “the great names of men” who informed the school’s history, does not include “a single image of a person of color, for example, despite the fact that black students were enrolled at Tufts as early as the late nineteenth century.”

    For the legion of rich and famous in New York, the unofficial start of summer means migrating east by luxury vehicle to the Hamptons, that slice of exclusivity at the end of Long Island. But this Memorial Day weekend they were greeted with a jarring new sight along an otherwise piney, bucolic stretch of Sunrise Highway, the main artery leading to the Hamptons: two six-story illuminated billboards being hastily constructed by a local Native American tribe just in time for the high season. Tall enough to rise above much of the tree line of this state roadway, the twin billboards...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed to be a girl from the Bronx, when she was actually an architect's daughter from Westchester. Then she decided to claim Jewish ancestry and now, joins Senator Elizabeth Warren in claiming to be Indian. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that America needs to allow illegal immigrants, who are Latino, to stay in the country because they are descendants of Native Americans, and the United States is on native lands. She made the remarks during a press conference in which she called for the abolishment of ICE on Thursday. “We have to have respect for children,...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is expected to announce a run for president this weekend during an appearance in Lawrence. As the eyes of the nation will be upon her, she has the opportunity to use the platform for an honorable act by declaring that she will not, in fact, seek the presidency, but instead will recommit herself to the people of Massachusetts who elected her to a six-year term just three months ago.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday apologized for previously identifying as Native American. Warren, who apologized recently to the Cherokee Nation for a DNA test showing that she had Native American ancestry, told The Washington Post that the apology was meant to include identifying herself as Native American while at a professor at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania. "I told him I was sorry for furthering confusion about tribal citizenship,” Warren told the Post. “I am also sorry for not being more mindful about this decades ago. We had a good conversation.” Her apology comes hours before President...

    Researchers at University College in London have published a paper theorizing that the slaughter of Native Americans by whites in the 15th and 16th centuries led to climate change often referred to as "The Little Ice Age." Temperatures plummeted, the researchers say, after the death of so many indigenous people that the land they were tilling was "reforested," thus leading to an increase in trees and vegation, which means less CO2 was being pumped into the atmosphere. CNN: European settlers killed 56 million indigenous people over about 100 years in South, Central and North America, causing large swaths of farmland...

    This past weekend’s big news was a big media frame-up of kids and the beating of a leftist drum by a little Indian. There’s no need now to elaborate on how the Covington Catholic High School students may end up being 2019’s most unfairly maligned group; their innocence has already been established. But suffice it to say that with video-recording devices ubiquitous today — and with incidents such as last Friday’s Lincoln Memorial affair shot by multiple people from many angles — if there’s no footage of something that allegedly happened there, it didn’t happen, period.

    Social media has wrongly identified a Cincinnati, Ohio teenager as the high school student who engaged in a confrontation with a Native American protester, leading to a slew of online attacks. Michael Hodge and his family were subject to threats after being doxxed — having personal information shared online — according to his older brother, Andrew Hodge. According to a Sunday Twitter thread by Andrew Hodge, members of his family were harassed and spammed with “threats of physical violence" after their parents' address got posted online. “My parents, uncles, & aunts, receive messages stating they are pieces of shit parents...
  • Native American “Harassed” By MAGA Kids Exposed As Outrage-Culture Grifter

    Just when you thought your blue-pilled perception of the world couldn’t take another red-pilling reality check – after Buzzfeed’s lies and mainstream media’s Covington Catholics chaos – it turns out that the man wondering quietly across the concourse before ‘not being accosted’ by young MAGA-hat-wearing teens is not some hapless native American… It turns out that Nathan Phillips is raising money with the help of a major big-money left-wing operation, and has a history of appearing in the press claiming to be a victim of anti-Native racism. In 2015, Phillips claimed that he was “bombarded by racial slurs” by students...

    ... lies spread against a group of Catholic teenagers, who attended the March for Life wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats. However, it is now becoming clear that the crime of assault under D.C. Code § 22–404 was committed against the Catholic boys primarily (but not only) by Native American activist Nathan Phillips. Phillips then massively lied about the incident to local news media. The video proves Phillips lied about every detail. About a dozen of those angry left-wing activists are guilty of the crime of disorderly conduct under D.C. Code 22-1321 when they left the site of their...

    A Catholic archdiocese outside Cincinnati is investigating the actions of some of its high school students during the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington Friday. Some students wearing Make America Great Again hats and clothing surrounded and taunted a Native American troupe as it performed the "American Indian Movement" song about strength and courage. It's not clear which of those young people surrounding the Native Americans are students of Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky. But the Diocese of Covington criticized any students who participated in the action, which broke out as a group from the school was in Washington...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does. “I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.” Graham said he would reveal the results on the show in a couple weeks.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) defended her decision to release DNA test results in an interview with The Boston Globe Tuesday, explaining that both President Trump and the opponents vying for her Senate seat in the midterm elections "have made the same attack." Warren has come under fire for her decision to share DNA test results that a researcher said “strongly support” her having a Native American ancestor. The move has been seen as an effort to respond to critics, primarily Trump, who have repeatedly claimed that she fabricated her heritage. “I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in...

    The fake news media are now pronouncing that Elizabeth Warren is an American Indian because she claimed she produced a genetic test showing she was about 1%, or perhaps as little as 0.01%, American Indian.  (The actual data behind the alleged test have not been released, being about as opaque as Christine Blasey Ford's polygraph results.) The liberal media herald this as a vindication of Warren.  "Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestry," reports Fortune magazine.  "Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestry," claims the Clinton News Network. Strong evidence?  A great, great, great grandmother,...
