Why First Nations People Regard Thanksgiving Day as a National Day of Mourning

We may want to reconsider what we are celebrating today in America.  History is so very different from what we’ve been taught, and it’s painful to face the reality.  ~ BP

Why First Nations People Regard Thanksgiving Day as a National Day of Mourning

(And why Alexander Ramsey Should be Posthumously Tried for Crimes Against Humanity)

“The Sioux (aka Lakota) Indians of Minnesota must be exterminated or driven forever beyond the borders of the state.” – Minnesota Governor Alexander Ramsey

We turkey-celebrating, obese, sports-addicted, shop-until-you-drop, historically-illiterate couch potatoes are all beneficiaries of the acts of our guilty ancestors who may have been unaware perpetrators of the crimes against humanity that occurred during the never-ending, shameful 500 year-long history of genocide, ethnic cleansing, colonizing and occupation of the people and the land that rightfully belonged the aboriginal tribes that had inhabited North, Central and South America for thousands of years before Columbus (who had no clue as to where he was) and his sex-starved sailors disembarked from their stinking ships and started pillaging the land and raping the most nubile female inhabitants back in 1492. (Soon cutting off the hands of  those  who couldn’t bring in their quota of gold from precious metal-less mines.)

Thus started the systematic genocide against the aboriginal, non-white people that led eventually – and perhaps inevitably – to the cruelty and crimes against humanity that enslaved millions of black Africans, many of whom died in chains even before they reached this so-called “promised land”.

In many cases the psychopathic killer-conquistadors that followed Columbus, were initially welcomed, tolerated and even nurtured (a la the mythical First Thanksgiving) – rather than being killed off as the criminal invaders that they were. Trusting the intruders to return their hospitality – in the spirit of the Christian Golden Rule – turned out to have been a huge mistake, for within decades the slaughter began, performed in the name of Christ – with the blessings of the accompanying priests whose mission was to convert the heathen to Christianity  under threat of death.

Most of our European ancestors were greatly enriched by the US Army’s massacres, the occupation and theft of their land, the exploitation of the resources, the colonization and the destruction of their way of life. We pink-skinned progeny have been conditioned to believe way too many myths about our obfuscated history. Thanks to our cunningly censored history books and the myths learned in Sunday School over the ages, we have been led to believe the story about the “nice” Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620 and who gratefully shared a feast with their new friendly Indian neighbors (who were soon to be driven off their land and annihilated by the Puritan so-called “christians” and others that soon followed).

The disinformation process about the first Thanksgiving (and the successor long week-end that happens every fourth Thursday of November in the US) has been designed to absolve our ancestors of guilt for the cruel bloodbaths that were perpetrated “in their names” by obedient soldiers against the militarily weaker aboriginals, a pattern that has been repeated against many weaker nations all around the world throughout our history.

The following censored-out stories about a few of our so-called “heroes” need to be told in the context of the true history of the American genocide of the First Nations people that happened right here in River City. Those “heroes” include Minnesota’s first two governors and one humiliated Civil War general.

The following quotes and explanatory commentary will expand on the title of this essay.

“The Sioux (aka Lakota) Indians of Minnesota must be exterminated or driven forever beyond the borders of the state.” – Minnesota Governor Alexander Ramsey in a genocidal declaration made on Sept. 9, 1862. Ramsey had made a fortune in real estate because of his dealings selling property to white settlers and businessmen after he himself had negotiated US-Dakota treaties that cheated the Dakota tribes out of their land. (http://sites.mnhs.org/historic-sites/alexander-ramsey-house/history)

“I shall do full justice, but no more.  I do not propose to murder any man, even a savage, who is shown to be innocent.” ”I shall probably approve them (the executions of the 303 Dakota warriors) and hang the villains” – Ex-Minnesota Governor, Colonel Henry H. Sibley, whose troops had defeated Chief Little Crow in the Battle of Wood Lake on August 23. Sibley had appointed the five member military tribunal that tried, convicted and sentenced, via death by hanging, 303 Dakota warriors that had been captured in the battle that ended the 6 week US-Dakota War of 1862. Sibley was commenting on the fate of the convicted warriors, all but 38 of whom had their death sentences commuted by President Lincoln. Many warriors were imprisoned at Camp McClellan, near Davenport, Iowa and more than 1,600 non-combatants were imprisoned at a concentration camp at Fort Snelling over the winter of 1862 – 63. Those that survived the cold, the starvation diets and the diseases were then deported to concentration camps in Nebraska and South Dakota (Pine Ridge). (http://www.minnpost.com/minnesota-history/2012/09/150-years-ago-us-dakota-war-ends-battle-wood-lake)

“The 38 Indians and half-breeds ordered by you for execution were hung yesterday at 10 am. Everything went off quietly.” – Henry Sibley, in a December 27, 1862 telegraph message to President Lincoln. (http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/dakota/sibley.html)

“There will be no peace in this region by virtue of treaties and Indian faith.  It is my purpose utterly to exterminate the Sioux (aka the Dakota) if I have the power to do so and even if it requires a campaign lasting the whole of next year.  Destroy everything belonging to them and force them out to the plains, unless, as I suggest, you can capture them.  They are to be treated as maniacs or wild beasts, and by no means as people with whom treaties or compromises can be made.” – Civil war Major General John Pope, in a letter to Colonel Sibley, urging an all-out effort to totally exterminate the Dakota, (letter was dated September 28, 1862): The punitive 40 year-old Pope was infamous for his abrasiveness, conceit and loud mouth, with which he alienated his colleagues, his officer staff and his soldiers. Significantly, Pope had recently been summarily relieved of his command of the Union Army of Virginia and demoted to Minnesota after his humiliating defeat by Robert E. Lee at the Second Battle of Manassas just a month earlier (August 31, 1862). (http://www.civilwar.org/battlefields/secondmanassas/second-manassas-history-articles/second-battle-of-manassas.html and

“As Europeans settled the East coast, they displaced eastern tribes who then migrated to get away from the White civilization, and they, in their turn, displaced weaker local tribes they encountered, and pushed many of those tribes farther from their homelands, as they took over their homelands.

“Westward moving Europeans would give the displaced eastern tribes … guns and gun powder and they would then instigate fights between the newly arrived tribes and the long established tribes in order to force the long established tribes from their homelands; and in doing so, extinguish the long established tribes’ ancestral ties that they had with the land, their ancestors and the spirit world. Evidence of this practice has shown itself time and time again throughout the Americas.

“Around 1750, a displaced East coast band of Ojibwe were pushed into the Dakota’s homeland and they then used French guns and gun powder to force the Dakota from their Mille Lacs Lake homeland.

“This was the strategy the European colonists used to greatly diminish the number of Dakota in their Mille Lacs homeland, which encouraged and made it possible for a French weapons armed, alcohol manipulated band of Ojibwe to violently force the Dakota from their Mille Lacs homeland.”

“Grieved by the loss of their lands, dissatisfied with reservation (aka, concentration camp) life, and ultimately brought to a condition of near starvation, the Dakota people appealed to US Indian agencies (involving ex-Minnesota governors Sibley and Ramsey) without success. The murder of five whites by four young Dakota Indians ignited a bloody uprising in which more than 300 whites and an unknown number of Indians were killed. In the aftermath, 38 Dakota captives were hanged in Mankato (the day after Christmas Day 1862) for ‘voluntary participation in murders and massacres,’ and the Dakota remaining in Minnesota were removed to reservations in Nebraska. Meanwhile, the Ojibwa were relegated to reservations on remnants of their former lands.

“What happened to the Dakota in 1862 and afterward was a grievous crime against humanity. If it had occurred in this present day and age the United Nations and the international community would condemn it and declare it to be ethnocide and genocide. A United Nations world court indictment would be issued and the perpetrators of this ethnocide and genocide would be rounded up, tried, convicted and punished for crimes against humanity.” – Thomas Dahlheimer from his long essay, entitled, A History Of The Dakota People In The Mille Lacs Area (http://www.towahkon.org/Dakotahistory.html)

Gov. Ramsey’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of November 3, 1862:

“WHEREAS, it is meet and in accordance with good and cherished custom of our fathers worthy to be “a statute forever in all our dwellings,” that the people “when they have gathered the fruit of the land,” should “keep a feast unto the Lord,” in commemoration of His goodness, and by a public act of Christian worship, acknowledge their dependence as a community upon Him in whose hands the kingdoms of the earth are but as dust in the balance.

“Therefore I, Alexander Ramsey, Governor of the State of Minnesota, do hereby set apart the twenty-seventh day of the present month of November, as a Day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God for his wonderful mercy towards us–for all the good gifts of His providence–for health and restored domestic peace–and the measure of general prosperity which we enjoy.

“Especially let us recognize His mercy in that He has delivered our borders from the savage enemies who rose up against us, and cast them into the pit they had privily dug for us; that our friends have been rescued from the horrors of captivity, and that our homes and household treasures are now safe from the violence of Indian robbers and assassins.

“And let us praise Him for the continued preservation of the Government of our Fathers, from the assaults of traitors and rebels; for the sublime spirit of patriotism, and courage, and constancy with which He has filled the hearts of its defenders; for the victories won by the valor of our troops; for the glorious share of Minnesota in the struggles and triumphs of the Union cause; for the safety of her sons who have passed through the fire of battle unscathed, and the honorable fame of the gallant dead; for the alacrity and devotion with which our citizens have rushed from their unharvested fields to the standard of the nation; and, above all, for the assurance that their toils, and perils, and wounds, and self-devotion, are not in vain; for the tokens, now manifest, of His will, that, through the blood and sweat of suffering and sacrifice, the nation is to be saved from its great calamity, and the great crime of which it is at once the effect and punishment; and that behind the thunders, and lightnings, and clouds of the tempest, the awful form of Jehovah is visible, descending in fire upon the mount, to renew the broken tablets of the Constitution, and proclaim FREEDOM as the condition and the law of a restored and regenerated Union.

“Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State, at the City of St. Paul, this third day of November, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two”.– Alexander Ramsey, Governor of the State of Minnesota

“Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole’s Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US Thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers. To them, Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of their people, the theft of their lands, and the relentless assault on their culture. Participants in a National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the racism and oppression which Native Americans continue to experience.” – Text of a plaque on Cole’s Hill, overlooking Plymouth Rock, Plymouth, MA

Dr Kohls is a retired family physician from Duluth, Minnesota who has been involved in peace, nonviolence and justice issues and often writes about militarism, racism, fascism, imperialism, totalitarianism, economic oppression, anti-environmentalism and other violent, unsustainable, anti-democratic movements.

Vladimir Putin Marginalized at the G20 Meeting in Brisbane

While they may have snubbed Putin, I’d say he made his exit as the admirable statesman that he is, putting the others to shame after stating the real situation with his typical candour.  He doesn’t miss a trick.  ~ BP

Vladimir Putin Marginalized at G20 in Brisbane? – Imagine – Mr. Putin Takes Center Stage
Those ‘too big to obey’ – not succumbing to the rules of the Anglo-Saxon game plan – will be shunned, like Mr. Putin and to a lesser extent China’s President Xi Jinping – shunned by Washington – and, of course, by its lackeys. China enjoys still some clout that Russia is missing thanks to her sheer population and economic strength. China has bypassed the US in terms of GDP earlier this year, as the world’s number one economy. Nevertheless, under his self-declared ‘pivot to Asia’, Obama is not missing an opportunity to harass and humiliate China, from the new military base in Darwin, Australia, to the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) treaty, a Free Trade Agreement, under which Obama wants to exclude China, to a huge US navy presence in the South China Sea which will supposedly increase from the current 50% to 65% of the total US navy fleet by 2015.

The G20 are playing dangerous games. Fortunately, Mr. Putin is a great diplomat. He doesn’t fall into the trap. Imagine – at the next G20 summit the unaligned among them, at least a handful of nations, simply don’t show up. They would go into opposition, so to speak; declaring a silent absenteeism – representing the wordless peoples of the world. What a powerful message that would send around the globe! Vladimir Putin eventually left the G20 summit before it ended – a 17 hour trip home, “I have to work on Monday – no worries, my Finance Minister will attend the final dinner” – and off he went. He was coming home as a hero, applauded for showing the G20 his brave statesmanship, as compared to the spineless lot of EU minions. Now imagine a possible alternative. Mr. Putin, instead of walking out straight, takes center stage, responding to these senseless lies and accusations about Ukraine by publicly divulging the facts.

“Ladies and Gentlemen – our common interest should be the truth – disseminating the truth as best we know it, and we have the best intelligence to provide us with the facts. Instead, western media are full with self-serving lies and propaganda. The latest target is Russia. There is the downing of the Malaysian MH17 plane, the so called annexation of Crimea – and foremost Ukraine. On the MH17, there is plenty of evidence, even acknowledged by OSCE that the plane has not been shot down by Russia, nor by Russia-sympathizers in Novorossiya; that the plane was not hit by a surface-to-air missile, but was most-likely sprayed by gunfire from a Kiev air force plane of the type SU-25, therefore clearly pointing to the Poroshenko Government. As far as Crimea is concerned – just read up on Russian history. This peninsula was part of Russia for at least the last 350 years. Crimea’s population, about 90% of Russian origin, has overwhelmingly voted to rejoin the Russian Federation. The Kremlin has merely accepted their vote.”

Vladimir Putin went on to talk about Ukraine, a country that also had hundreds of years of Russian history. It is so rich in natural resources and agriculture that throughout the Soviet Union it was considered the breadbasket of Russia. Most Ukrainians have still close ties to Russia. –

“You can imagine, ladies and gentlemen, Ukraine has closer links to Russia than have Mexico and Canada to the United States. So, how would it feel, Mr. Obama, if Russia were to initiate anti-Washington propaganda and unrest in these two nations? – Nevertheless, you know this very well, Mr. Obama, your Government with the help of the EU and NATO has orchestrated the coup of a democratically elected president of Ukraine on 22 February this year.”

The Russian leader reminded the audience of Madame Nuland’s overheard telephone conversation with the US Ambassador in Kiev, boasting of the more than 5 billion dollars invested in Ukrainian Regime change, even talking about the new heads of government they were going to put in place. A statement she later repeated to the Washington Press Club.

“The reasons for taking over Ukraine” – Mr. Putin continued – “as we know, are many – the country’s richness in natural resources, agricultural potential, US oil giants eager to frack for gas – and foremost, bringing yet a new NATO base at Moscow’s doorstep. – You, Mr. Obama, are the first one to understand Russia’s discontent, since you would not like to see Russia setting up military bases in Mexico, or anywhere in the Caribbean. – Why do you claim exceptionalism for the United States of America?”

“Yet, Russia has not stopped your Kiev adventure, Mr. President, other than providing the savagely besieged Donbass population with humanitarian aid, while your intelligence and NATO forces are supporting the Kiev army with weapons and strategic advice. – Do you know, Mr. Obama that Mr. Poroshenko’s troops, whose predecessors fought for Hitler, today strengthened by NATO, are viciously torturing and killing the pro-Russian east-Ukrainian population? That since the beginning of the conflict way more than 4,000 people, including women and children have been killed and more than 1.2 million people have fled to Russia? – Wouldn’t a Russian military intervention be a natural reaction to stop this western supported bloody civil war? – Of course, it would. And you Mr. Obama – all of you in this room know it, but are unwilling to admit it. – Well, I make it easier for you, by giving you once more the facts.”

With a pause of silence, Mr. Putin let his last words sink in. “And one more thing the G20, Masters of the Universe, should know – Ukraine is just a peon on a square of a much larger chess game – a war game that has become unavoidable for the United States as wars are highly profitable – and – today the US economy depends on them – a war game that strives for Full Spectrum Dominance, as your generals, Mr. Obama, like to call it. They will not shy from killing millions to reach their goal, Washington’s goal – a One World Order, controlling the world’s resources, the world’s nations, their people – and their economies. We the G20 minus one, plus the voiceless billions, have the power to stop this hegemonic bloodletting. But we must be bold and dare to stand up for our collective rights.”

“Thank you for listening.”

With these last words, Mr. Putin left the audience in awe. He rushed out to the airport to fly home – where he has work to do.

Earthquake Rocks Dallas on 51st Anniversary of JFK Assassination There

Another ‘coincidence’?  Not usually. 

And it’s no coincidence the lamestream media is almost ignoring this historic event, either. 

CNN has come up with this, however.  ~ BP

CGI’s Francis Drake: EARTHQUAKE ROCKS DALLAS ON ANNIVERSARY OF JFK ASSASSINATION THERE


Date: Sunday, 23-Nov-2014

 

This is just another reason I see significance in the time and location of earthquakes, of various magnitudes. If it’s a felt earthquake it is potentially a “big” earthquake in prophetic analysis, as also it is potentially “big” if it happens in an area where earthquakes are rare. This one tonight in Dallas was only magnitude 3.3, but it was widely felt, and the location & timing (51 years after Kennedy assassination there) is very interesting.

“CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reported the quake was felt over a wide area, likely because it was relatively shallow. It was the strongest earthquake to hit the Dallas area since September of 2009 [“3.3 strongest in Metroplex since 3.4 on Sept.29th, 2009″ http://dfw.cbslocal.com ], which has experienced several temblors since the summer.”

Ebola Cure Revealed in a Nov. 22nd Press Release by American Medical Professionals

Thanks to Extraterrestrials.ning.com for the heads up. 

This is HUGE my friends! This enables us to foil the cabal’s hopes for an epidemic in the USA and the subsequent “forced vaccinations” we’ve been hearing about. We just need to ensure the right people put the pressure on officials to expand on these treatments and facilities and then spread the word to the masses. 

If just ONE mainstream media network in the US picked up this story, it could blow the lid off everything the cabal has been planning. We can tear up their playbook and burn it.

Press Release Announces World’s First Case of Cured Ebola

In a recent press release titled “Rapid Ebola Infection Cure, November 22, 2014” Drs. Robert Rowen, of Santa Rosa California and Howard Robins, of New York City, have announced the first cure of the Ebola infection in the world with a safe treatment costing less than 40 USD. The treatment’s main pillar consists of direct intravenous infusion of ozone gas (DIV) with the additional aspects of oral vitamin C and glutathione support.

On Friday November 14, 2014, a physician at an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone in West Africa accidentally stabbed himself with an Ebola contaminated needle. Fortunately for the unlucky physician, Drs. Rowen and Robins had just finished an on-site training in Sierra Leone of the Rowen-Robins Ebola Treatment Protocol for the region’s health care professionals battling Ebola. According to the press release:

Upon the emergence of symptoms 2 days later on Sunday November 16, he called Kojo Carew, MD of Freetown, Sierra Leone. Dr. Carew is the physician in charge of maintaining the program and equipment/supplies brought and taught by Rowen/Robins who came to Sierra Leone to teach the protocol at the invitation of President Ernest Bai Koroma in October 2014. The infected doctor did not return to work on Monday November 17, 2014, which became his first day of treatment.

The press release goes on to describe the immediate collaboration across borders that led to what appears to be the world’s first successful cure of the Ebola infection.

 “Dr. Rowen was informed of the needle stick on Sunday November 16, 2014, but was not advised that symptoms had yet developed. Rowen sent back instructions to treat him preventively and immediately with the protocol, believing the exposed doctor to be at great risk for symptoms to develop within 5 days. Dr. Robins, informed shortly after, concurred with the preventive protocol and urgency of treatment

This press release comes on the heels of November 7th interview of Dr. Rowan by Alex Jones of Inforwars.com in which the doctor chronicled his recent experience teaching the medical professionals in Sierra Leone. Particularly telling was Dr. Rowen’s description of the suppression he witnessed by the Minister of Health and his Deputies concerning his ozone therapy. According to Dr. Rowen’s account, “The medical staff at the Ebola center jockeyed, they vied to get (ozone) treatments to protect themselves.” He continues, “A call came in when we were there from the Minister of Health and then a second call came in from the Deputy Minister of Health telling the military major (who was in charge of the government facility) ‘If you value your job, there will be no ozone treatments at the facility’”. Against this backdrop of information, one can get a better understanding of the November 22nd press release when it states:

The doctor chose not to get an Ebola blood test at the time. A positive test would have mandated forced confinement in an Ebola treatment center where he would have been denied the ozone therapy. He believed this would likely have cost him his life, as the best clinics in Sierra Leone have a 60% death rate.”

The recent press release concludes by stating:

Today, November 22, 2014, Dr. “X” is in apparent good health and completely symptom free.”

Dr. Rowen has been working with ozone therapy since 1986 which makes him the most experienced practitioner in North America. According to Dr. Rowen, the key benefits of ozone therapy are:

  • It can be administered at less than a dollar per treatment
  • It improves the realogic properties of blood flow (blood flows better)
  • It releases more oxygen from the red blood cells and it helps the mitochondria burn that oxygen to make energy
  • It modulates the immune system
  • Ozone is directly viral inactivating by biochemical processes (viruses are inactivated by oxidation and ozone is the ultimate oxidant and it’s non-toxic)

Taking the press release at face value, it would be of great importance for sustained, worldwide pressure to be applied to Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah, the current Minister of Health and Sanitation who is running the conventional Ebola treatment facilities (minus ozone therapy) in Sierra Leone. It is essential that he understand that the world’s eyes are now on him and evaluating his reasoning to exclude, what appears to be, a viable Ebola cure available to his people now.

Russia to Bring in New Law: Pedophiles Will Be Castrated [video]

CHEMICALLY castrated, that is.  Interesting…  It appears that the enormity of paedophilia worldwide is ballooning these days. They claim it’s a problem that’s increasing dramatically in Russia from year to year.

The bill still has to pass in Parliament, however.  ~ BP

Russia has brought in a new law that has already gained massive support and acceptance within the Russian realm: pedophiles will be castrated. Here is a video on this whole new development that we should all be supporting:

According to a Russian report:

The Russian parliament has approved a bill on pedophilia in a first reading. From now on people found guilty of sex crimes against children under the age of 14 will face chemical castration, while repeat offenders face a life sentence.

According to the new law, the decision on a convict’s obligatory chemical castration will be made through a forensic psychiatrist’s report requested by the court, which may ultimately turn to other medical measures, MP Dmitry Vyatkin explained to Itar-TASS.

“It would be unwise to limit the medical measures to just castration, as in some cases it may not help,” Vyatkin said.

At the same time, some of the convicts may ask for voluntary chemical castration, even if the victim was over 14. This may help them get parole if they are already serving a sentence, or a more lenient sentence if they are still being tried. However, in the latter case the final decision will be up to the court.

The law also banned suspended and deferred sentences for those found guilty of sex crimes against a child under the age of 14. And from now on they can ask for parole only after serving at least 80 per cent of their sentence.

The new law comes amid increased concerns over sexual transgressions against minors in Russian society.

In America, pedophiles in many instances have received special treatment and light sentences, and to such evils I say with holy Solomon:

Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. (Proverbs 8:11)

Not only this, but we have had homosexual priests and pastors who have corrupted many youths and have even taught that homosexuality is permissible. Such must be put to death by the state. The death penalty for homosexual pastors and priests was upheld by Pope Pius V when he wrote:

So that the contagion of such a grave offense may not advance with greater audacity by taking advantage of impunity, which is the greatest incitement to sin, and so as to more severely punish the clerics who are guilty of this nefarious crime and who are not frightened by the death of their souls, we determine that they should be handed over to the severity of the secular authority, which enforces civil law.

Therefore, wishing to pursue with greater rigor than we have exerted since the beginning of our pontificate, we establish that any priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge, let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have sunk into this abyss.
