As many of you know, I have passionately been following & reporting on the Unconstitutional & Fascist acts upon the Water Protectors @ Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, perpetrated by:
Moron County Sheriff
ND Governor Jack Dalrymple (who took $372,455.00 in campaign contributions came from oil & gas):
Energy Transfer Partners-CEO Kelcy Waren
I have many, many concerns, which I will not go into here (feel free to read my other posts and follow the pertinent links therein).
What I'd like to blog about now is the fact that only Two (2) of the Five (5) candidates (I'm counting Senator Bernie Sanders) have stood up for the Rights of the Water Protectors, the other Three (3) have oddly remained silent.
Senator Bernie Sanders (who may be written in in ALL 50 states) is pro-Native American Rights, against DAPL:
Jill Stein (Green Party) is also against DAPL:
Meanwhile Trump, Clinton, & Gary Johnson are all silent. Why is that?
Trump, as was recently reported accepted $4$ from Kelcy Warren ETP/DAPL-CEO and has himself invested $1,000,000 in the pipeline:
Clinton has accepted $$$ from: BOA, Citibank, Goldman-Sachs, JP Morgan/Chase, Morgan Stanley, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, and others.
All of which have also provided funding to ETP, DAPL, Bakken, Sunnco, et. al.
As for Gary Johnson, he is a Libertarian and Libertarians are pro "free trade" (TPP) and corporate conglomerate ruled government, as are the Kock brothers.
