Yes, No Drama Obama, when he and his

Admin were actually helping people and making a Lot of Progress.

But, that wasn't good enough for those on the purity wagon who believed LIES.. and ended up enabling to get a vile evil Not Fit to Serve in the WH, along with all his heinous Swamp creatures.

Stable genius!

Oh Wow.. what in the world would repubs do to

help the Cherokees or any other living person except the richest who only care about their tax cuts.. Not about having Clean Water/Air, a stronger infrastructure, schools, or helping those who can't afford medical insurance?!

That's too bad about the New Deal excluding Native Americans. I can't imagine repubs including Native Americans in anything beneficial, though. President Obama was all about keeping his promises to them..

Candidate Obama Kept His Promise to Native Americans

snip//

President Obama campaigned hard in 2008 for the votes of American Indians. He vowed that his administration would pay special attention to their grievances about federal mismanagement and the government’s recurring neglect of treaty obligations. “Few have been ignored by Washington for as long as Native Americans — the first Americans,” he told the Crow Nation in Montana, promising a change.

Flash forward to this week as Mr. Obama attended his eighth and final White House Tribal Nations Conference, an annual summit meeting of Indian leaders he instituted. He received praise for actually delivering on his pledge in multiple ways, including the announcement of $492 million in lawsuit settlements with 17 American Indian tribes for alleged federal mismanagement of their funds and lands. The government holds more than 100,000 leases to manage about 56 million acres of tribal lands rich in mining, timber and oil resources that have historically been exploited at the tribes’ expense.

The government holds more than 100,000 leases to manage about 56 million acres of tribal lands rich in mining, timber and oil resources that have historically been exploited at the tribes’ expense.

The settlement was the latest in the administration’s resolution of more than 100 tribal claims, some of them a century old, at a cost of more than $3.3 billion. Separate from that, the administration settled a complex, 13-year-old lawsuit in 2009, agreeing to pay $3.4 billion in compensation for federal mishandling of hundreds of thousands of land trust accounts. That signaled a sea change in the long and bitter history of Washington’s treatment of tribal interests and grievances.

Yeah, growing up you don't think about documents telling about your ancestry. But, their stories about your heritage makes a strong impression. I was delighted when my Mom told us about her family's relation to the Ojibwa.

Cool you have "indigenous Mexican blood from the Tarahumara and Tepehuan" tribes!

Well Said, Caliman! Damn! I don't get Dems who

think Elizabeth Warren has "sinister motives" as you so rightly point out.

It was a brilliant vid.. very professional. The Racist Assholes in the vid were exposed for what they are and Elizabeth and her republican brothers stood up for who they are. Nobody trying to cash in on having Native American Ancestry. And, she highlighted the struggles of our Native Americans.

For Fuck sake their votes have been suppressed in North Dakota as we speak.

I have Objibwa blood in me.. so there!

Mahalo for this!.. she got in a little hot water. maybe she'll at least keep her

damn brainwashed thoughts to herself now.

Just saw this tweet on Bono..

he has a cat and he needs to be told by

Ecuadorian Embassy to take better care of it? How many jobs does he have besides cleaning his bathroom?

Leaking asshole got leaked..

(Julian Assange, the head of WikiLeaks, has denied working with the Russian government, but he manifestly despises Clinton, and, in a leaked Twitter direct message, he said that in the 2016 election “it would be much better for GOP to win.”)
