DAPL Company Hands Out $15 Million Bribe While Still Targeting DAPL Protesters


More recent news on NoDAPL protests so the fight continues
The courts and the state of Dakota are now demanding that NODAPL protesters who have been charged with criminal activities can no longer use attorneys from out of state which is prepaosterous and probably unconstitutional .
The other new story is that the corporation in charge of the DAPL pipeline Energy Transfer Partners has given North Dakota a donation or bribe of 15 million dollars to offset the cost to the state for fighting the pipeline protesters.
We also know that the Mercenary company TigerSwan is still actively monitoring anyone involved in the protests now or previously and is doing a dragnet sweep once agin in an illegal and unconstitutional manner . But under the Departmant of Homeland Security and the anti-terrorists laws passed since 9/11 TigerSwan and police may be acting within this legal framework by as we have already seen (secretly ) designating the protesters in this case as they have in others as Domestic Terrorists. But rember President Trump is only following the lead of former President Obama and the Democr5atic Party . And once again the Mainstream Media being on the side of President Obama , the Democrats and corporate America is mostly silent .

“The builder of the Dakota Access pipeline sent North Dakota $15 million on Thursday to help pay law enforcement bills related to months of sometimes violent protests over the project's construction.
BISMARCK, N.D. — The builder of the Dakota Access pipeline sent North Dakota $15 million on Thursday to help pay law enforcement bills related to months of sometimes violent protests over the project's construction.
Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners has wired the money, said Mike Nowatzki, a spokesman for Gov. Doug Burgum. Company investors also contributed, he said.
The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving oil from North Dakota to a distribution point in Illinois in June. The project is still being contested in federal court by American Indian tribes who fear a leak could endanger their water supply, and protests from August to February resulted in a large-scale police response and more than 700 arrests.
The state has arranged for a bank credit line of up to $43 million to cover policing costs, including $5 million just added this week. Maj. Gen. Alan Dohrmann, who heads the North Dakota National Guard, has said costs shouldn't go past that figure.
Burgum said in a statement he was grateful for the contribution.”

" Private Security Tigerswan Launches Dragnet on #NODAPL "

Then the pipeline was hit by several acts of vandalism targeting valve sites along the route. Starting in mid-March, saboteurs snaked down the line, piercing holes in exposed parts of the pipeline and setting equipment on fire.
The vandalism, which disrupted completion of the pipeline, created new work for TigerSwan. But the company did more than deploy additional guards along the line — it also embarked on a multistate hunt for the culprits.
By early May, TigerSwan had a pair of suspects. “The best assessment based on the known facts is that the attack was most likely conducted by Iowa activists; Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya,” states an internal report dated May 4.
On July 24, Reznicek and Montoya claimed responsibility for the sabotage. Standing in front of an Iowa Utilities Board sign, the two women read a joint statement: “After having explored and exhausted all avenues of process, including attending public commentary hearings, gathering signatures for valid requests for environmental impact statements, participating in civil disobedience, hunger strikes, marches and rallies, boycotts and encampments, we saw the clear deficiencies of our government to hear the people’s demands.”
“We are speaking publicly to empower others to act boldly, with purity of heart, to dismantle the infrastructures which deny us our rights to water, land and liberty.”

" Mercenaries Literally Treated Standing Rock Protesters Like Terrorists "

The Humanist Report
Published on 4 Jun 2017
The Standing Rock Sioux tribe—along with other water protecters—were not only brutalized by the state of North Dakota, but were also harassed by mercenaries hired by Energy Transfer Partners, the company constructing the Dakota Access Pipeline. Leaked documents obtained by The Intercept reveal that the said mercenary company literally employed counterterrorism measures as a means of quelling the #NoDAPL "insurgency."



Meanwhile as we now know President Obama was working behind the scenes coordinating the crackdown on the DAPL protests.
The US government used the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, the National Guard , Local Police and private mercenaries TigerSwan to intimidate , harass and brutalize protesters.
And they went further by using the same tactics and strategies on these indigenous protesters as they would use on domestic or foreign terrorists.
They used various forms of survellience from planes to drones to monitoring cell phones and computers and hacked them or crashed them .
They also used agents to infiltrate the groups to sow discontent and to instigate violence against the police .
So Obama 's treatment of indigenous people is just the same old story of neglect and then push back and the use of dirty tricks if indigenous people fight back.
So the five centuries of oppression of Native Americans continues and the Mainstream Media for the most part ignores the story . When they do cover the story they base their narrative on what the government, police and the corporations tell them. So those in authority characterize the protesters as violent and unreasonable .

" Obama's Sleepy Tone On Dakota Protest Enrages But Doesn't Surprise "

President Obama's tone towards the Dakota Access pipeline protesters is as sleepy and obfuscating as ever, which shows his interest in protecting corporate polluters.

" Standing Rock Protectors BRUTALIZED By Cops In Standoff "

TYT Politics Reporter Jordan Chariton (https://twitter.com/JordanChariton) reported from just east of the main camp, where Standing Rock water protectors attempted to cross a makeshift wooden bridge they built over the river in order to pray where their ancestors are buried.
But they couldn't cross the bridge, as they were met with over 100 North Dakota police who fired off pepper spray and rubber bullets at protectors (while standing on top of the site where their ancestors are buried).

"In another standoff between state police and protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline, rubber bullets, pepper spray and mace might have been used. One protester was rushed to a clinic, according to sources.
Hundreds of people came to the banks of the Cannonball River on Wednesday morning to pray, with water protectors going into the river while others remained on the shore.
There they were pushed back into the water.
Others were hit with mace, pepper spray, and rubber bullets, according to RT's Alexander Rubinstein.
Three were allegedly shot with rubber bullets. One was reportedly taken to a clinic.
Dakota Access protesters reported police firing rubber bullets at “point blank” range. Journalist and former congressional candidate Erin Schrode posted on social media, “I was just shot. Militarized police fired at me from pointblank range with a rubber bullet at #StandingRock.””*

" Standing Rock: Police shot journalist for no reason | How did it all begin "

Protect Mother Earth
Published on 3 Nov 2016

Standing Rock : As peaceful protests over the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline again turn violent, one journalist near the Standing Rock Sioux Indian reservation in North Dakota captured shocking video showing herself being shot by police out of nowhere as she conducted an interview.
Erin Schrode, an activist and journalist, was doing an interview at the edge of the Cantapeta Creek when police shot her with a rubber bullet. In her video of the incident, Schrode can be heard screaming, “Ow!” before crumbling to the ground.
Police in riot gear shot rubber bullets and used pepper spray on demonstrators — who call themselves water protectors — on the shoreline of the Cantapeta Creek, just north of the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation here on Wednesday.
After a few relatively peaceful days at the campground where thousands have gathered to demonstrate against a controversial North Dakota oil pipeline, demonstrators put out calls on social media to "make your way to the river" for a "river action," but to do so "in prayer."
In a Facebook Live stream, Cempoalli Twenny, who says he is at Standing Rock to protect the water, said, "The pipeline is getting really close to the river now, so it's crunch time."

We go to Standing Rock, North Dakota, for an update on how hundreds of police with military equipment raided a resistance camp Thursday that was established by Native American water protectors in the path of the proposed $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. More than 100 officers in riot gear with automatic rifles lined up across a highway, flanked by multiple MRAPs, an LRAD sound cannon, Humvees driven by National Guardsmen, an armored police truck and a bulldozer. Water protectors say police deployed tear gas, mace, pepper spray and flash-bang grenades and bean bag rounds against the Native Americans and shot rubber bullets at their horses. "We learned a lot about the relationship of North Dakota to Native people," says Tara Houska, national campaigns director for Honor the Earth.

Journalists Beaten, Pepper Sprayed And Arrested During St. Louis Protests

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Roland S. Martin
Published on 6 Oct 2017

Journalist covering the protests in St. Louis have been pepper sprayed, beaten and arrested. Those being targeted include musical reporters, documentary makers, live stream journalists who were just doing their jobs have fallen victim of aggression from law enforcement officials. Protests in St. Louis have continued daily since the September 15th acquittal of former police officer Jason Stockley in the shooting death of Anthony Lamar Smith.



 and here's a video by BlackLivesMatter showing cops in USA killing more Black citizens and then people wonder why they are protesting and why now NFL players are getting involved. : The establishment can't understand how a black American who gets to play in the NFL and possibly paid millions would dare bite the hand that feeds them -they are supposed to be grateful - no they are using their position of status to bring attention to an issue.

This disturbs the hell out of the some people and they think these Black NFL players are getting a bit uppity and they are supposed to be grateful like the old stereotype of the Uncle Tom or the Black slave who gets to work in the big house on the plantation like those prisoners whom Hillary used for cheap labor when she was the governor's wife in Arkansas.


 

 and for a reality check here's Lawrence O'Donnel showing his disdain for NYPD brutality of peaceful #Occupy Wall Street Protesters in 2011 and O'Donnel notes that it is only because of the video and the Media use of it and that an investigation will take place but as he notes it will probably be a sham and a coverup by the police department . And this has been happening before #Occupy / #OWS or #BlackLivesmatter movements began and this sort of police cover up is still going on.

What O'Donnel fails to mention is that as we now know the crushing of the Occupy movement was directed not by local police but by the FBI, DHS and the Whitehouse at that time of President Obama. NYPD Police Brutality Lawrence O'Donnell Dipsodan Published on 30 Sep 2011 The "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations this past weekend turned ugly with some NYPD officers over-reacting when at least one officer, Joseph Bologna using pepper spray against peaceful and orderly protesters. O'Donnell used his show to bring this to light.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
 

              and here's a video from the Oakland protest - Can you say POLICE STATE and this was before NeoFascist Trump took over so my take away is that this is where America was heading since the draconian anti-crime bills and other actions by the Clinton Regime followed by the Bush and Obam Regimes just same old tune of Law and Order at any cost.

The Police tactic is to trap large groups of protesters by Kettling and then gassing and shooting protesters with flash bangs, rubber bullets , bean bags pepper spray and tear gas. The police tell protesters to leave the area but the police are blocking all of the exits . In this case people are out with their families children and babies but this means nothing to the police who have been ordered to crush this movement .
                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                                                         
Here's a video of people escaping from the kettling being hunted down by armed police: arlo stone Published on 1 Feb 2012 Armed Riot Cops in Oakland Ca. kettle 300 Occupy Oakland protesters before an occupier with a membership card gets 100 people inside the YMCA.

Riot cops swinging batons flood the area and seal off the YMCA. Terrified Occupiers scatter looking for a way out while cops use urban warfare tactics with guns drawn to hunt them down amongst gym members working out. The last 10 who escaped advanced just ahead of the closing OPD. 24 people inside were later charged with trumped up felonies and tortured in the Santa Rita jail for 4 days. Welcome to America!

#FlashbackFriday Obama & FBI Branded The Occupy Movement As "Domestic Terrorists" Dec. 30, 2012





XXXXX
Video of #Occupy protesters at UC DAVIS being brutally pepper sprayed




XXXXX



I thought I would from time to time re-post older post of mine which are still relevant.
The post republished here is from December 30, 2012.

I divided into two sections from its original format. The second part deals with gun control the first with Obama crushing #OCCUPY

Of course we also know from more leaked documents that President Obama colluded with the FBI, DHS, Local Police, Oil company mercenaries TigerSwan and the corporations involved to demonize, smear and infiltrate and spy on the Water Protectors in North Dakota and elsewhere treating them as Domestic or Foreign terrorists - they used anti-terrorism tactics on the NODAPL protesters at Standing Rock and continue to do so. Of course the US media including Rachel Maddow MS Russia,Russia, Russia and MSNBC wont report much on this since it doesn't reflect well on Obama or his inner circle or the Democratic party and especially is damaging to Queen Hillary .

XXXXXXXXXXXX


Here's video on the police , National Guard and Mercenaries Tiger Swan and their brutal response to protesters and we now know it was all approved by President Obama and his administration of course in secret but the documents were leaked giving those concerned proof .

But most Americans like Hillary Clinton have a hate on for Environmentalists and especially for Native Americans .
Now that Trump is in power there is no longer any need for softening the rhetoric as Obama and Hillary felt they had to to appear as if they gave a shit.

WATER CANNONS, MASS HYPOTHERMIA, TEAR GAS AND MORE --FRONTLINES NODAPL PROTEST(GRAPHIC



XXXXXX
Obama demonizing and crushing #Occupy is just the American Way of dealing with legitimate protest which are uncomfortable for the establishment and the Media and a large portion of Americans who are in effect displaying their sometimes masked Authoritarian quasi -Fascistic tendency whether it is towards #Occupy of #BlackLivesMatter Or the #WaterProtectors and Native American protests against the Oil companies or anti-torture groups or anti-war groups or anti-drones or anti-cluster bombs all are demonized as UNAMERICAN and therefore can legitimately according to President Obama or whomever be denied their basic fundamental rights.

The same old tropes or memes are trotted out accusing protesters of being UnAmerican or anti-American as Russian plants or dupes as the movements in the sixties ie Civil Rights Movement, the anti-war movement ,the Feminists were all branded as UnAmerican anti-Christian and pro-Russia or Pro-China all as a way to demonize and make such gorups illegitimate in their claims and their operations.

FBI documents just obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) pursuant to the PCJF’s Freedom of Information Act demands reveal that from its inception, the FBI treated the Occupy movement as a potential criminal and terrorist threat even though the agency acknowledges in documents that organizers explicitly called for peaceful protest and did “not condone the use of violence” at occupy protests.

The PCJF has obtained heavily redacted documents showing that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country.

As long as you behave yourself, as most Americans do, you are safe from government oppression (of course, you may lose your home or your job and go into bankruptcy over health care costs, but that is a horse of a different color).

Above Quote of Roger Hollander Revealed: How the FBI Coordinated the Crackdown on Occupy December Naomi Wolf at the Guardian via Roger Hollander wordpress.com Dec. 30, 2012

The Occupy Movement (#OWS) from the very beginning even before the first protests occurred was labeled by the FBI and other agencies and the Obama administration as a"domestic terrorist organization" .

So this is how President Obama and his administration viewed Occupy as domestic terrorists the irony and hypocrisy is astounding. When Obama and other officials supposedly praise Martin Luther King and the non-violent civil rights movement we should no longer take them seriously. Because given Obama's attitude towards the Occupy Movement we can assume if Obama and his friends in power were in power when Martin Luther King was organizing protests across the USA Obama being as we now know on the side of the status quo would have done as J. Edgar Hoover did that is to infiltrate and spy on MLK and other leaders of the movement and we can assume Obama would have stayed quiet when police used violent methods to try to put an end to the Civil Rights Movement .

If it had been up to President Obama he would have sent in the National Guard not to protect Civil Rights leaders and their followers but rather to use force to destroy the Civil Rights movement . As someone mentioned in their analysis of Obama's policies is that he more akin to a moderate Republican rather than a progressive and he manged to resell his brand to the American voters a second time.

So in fact the local police forces and the FBI and Homeland Security and other intelligence agencies were involved in a secret coordinated effort to stop even peaceful protests because Occupy was seen as a threat to America's national security and to the Big banks and big Corporations and Wall Street.

The documents released for instance shows there was talk about assassinating those who were considered as the leaders of Occupy but it is unclear who was threatening Occupy leaders the government or some other anti-Occupy organization or just individuals. If the threat was made by non-government or police officials then Occupy Movement should have been informed of such a threat.

Naomi Wolf :

It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves.

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, in a groundbreaking scoop that should once more shame major US media outlets (why are nonprofits now some of the only entities in America left breaking major civil liberties news?), filed this request. The document – reproduced here in an easily searchable format – shows a terrifying network of coordinated DHS, FBI, police, regional fusion center, and private-sector activity so completely merged into one another that the monstrous whole is, in fact, one entity: in some cases, bearing a single name, the Domestic Security Alliance Council. And it reveals this merged entity to have one centrally planned, locally executed mission. The documents, in short, show the cops and DHS working for and with banks to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens.

The documents, released after long delay in the week between Christmas and New Year, show a nationwide meta-plot unfolding in city after city in an Orwellian world: six American universities are sites where campus police funneled information about students involved with OWS to the FBI, with the administrations’ knowledge (p51); banks sat down with FBI officials to pool information about OWS protesters harvested by private security; plans to crush Occupy events, planned for a month down the road, were made by the FBI – and offered to the representatives of the same organizations that the protests would target; and even threats of the assassination of OWS leaders by sniper fire – by whom? Where? – now remain redacted and undisclosed to those American citizens in danger, contrary to standard FBI practice to inform the person concerned when there is a threat against a political leader (p61).

As Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the PCJF, put it, the documents show that from the start, the FBI – though it acknowledges Occupy movement as being, in fact, a peaceful organization – nonetheless designated OWS repeatedly as a “terrorist threat”:

“FBI documents just obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) … reveal that from its inception, the FBI treated the Occupy movement as a potential criminal and terrorist threat … The PCJF has obtained heavily redacted documents showing that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country.”

Verheyden-Hilliard points out the close partnering of banks, the New York Stock Exchange and at least one local Federal Reserve with the FBI and DHS, and calls it “police-statism”:

“This production [of documents], which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg, is a window into the nationwide scope of the FBI’s surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement … These documents also show these federal agencies functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and Corporate America.”

Morgan Freeman -The Voice Of NeoMcCarthyism For Neoliberals

Yes even Morgan Freeman and Rob Reiner and other supposedly Hollywood Liberals are now pushing for the New Improved updated version of The House Committee on Unamerican Activities of Joseph McCarthy. They want to investigate any American who was critical of the DNC or Hillary Clinton or who believe the Democrats and Hillary Clinton rigged the 2015-2016 primary to insure that Hillary won.
They believe that the smearing of Bernie Sanders and his supporters by Hillary Clinton's team and by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others such as Peter Daou , David Brooks, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi . Donna Brazile, Joy Reid, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Maher , Rachel Maddow , Chris Hayes , Chris Matthews, Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer , Gloria Steinem, Madame AlBright et al was justified and just part of their campaign strategy. But the dirty tricks and smearing of Bernie and his supporters was unfair  and unethical to say the least and the DNC still refues to apologize for Rigging the Primary.
They at least could have had the decency to tell Bernie and his supporters not to bother with a campaign since the elite within the DNC had already picked Hillary to be the Presidential Candidate.
But as usual its seems Americans either don't believe in an open democracy or just don't care and prefer Dirty Politics ala President Nixon to having a fair and open process.
So now they want to blame Russia and those Americans they believe colluded with the Russians to defeat SAINT HILLARY . So these NeoMcCarthyite Neoliberals are going full tilt NeoFascist and  are demanding investigations  and jailing all those who criticized Hillary or the DNC and Democratic Party. If the numbers of these dissidents is large enough is Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman comfortable with the creation of Prison camps or re-education camps or just Concentration camps .
Joseph McCarthy , Roy Cohn, Nixon ,  Spiro Agnew , Reagan , William F. Buckley Jr., Ayn Rand , Henry Kissinger , the John Birchers would all be delighted.



September 30, 2017 "Information Clearing House" -  Morgan Freeman is used to playing God, and in lesser roles, president of the United States. These days, however, Freeman has sold his image and aura to the worst warmongers on the planet. Morgan Freeman has signed on as a front man and propagandist for an all-out military confrontation with Russia, the only country that has the power to turn the United States into a burned out cinder. In a video that Freeman’s right-wing friends are circulating on social media, the actor declares that a new world war has already begun.
Russia is waging war on the U.S. ,” says the text of a video, produced by the so-called Committee to Investigate Russia. Morgan Freeman then intones, “We have been attacked. We are at war.” He spins an infantile 1950s-type demonization of Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, for supposedly using “cyber warfare to attack democracies around the world.” At this point, we discover that the man who plays God on film is, in real life, just an old time, shuffling Uncle Tom, the kind of shameless bootlicker that we hoped had gone extinct. Morgan Freeman says of the United States, “for 241 years our democracy has been a shining example to the world.” Freeman’s slave ancestors must be cursing his name from the grave.

A sudden, early grave awaits us all, if Morgan Freeman’s script-writers have their way. The least dangerous member of the board of the Committee to Investigate Russia is Rob Reiner, the actor and director who used to play the “meathead” on TV’s “All in the Family.” His political family is Zionism. Reiner wants to “eliminate” Hamas , the Palestinian political organization, and charges that Donald Trump’s rich Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner , has “turned his back on his religion.” But Reiner is just the media connection, like Morgan Freeman, himself

The ideology of the Committee to Investigate Russia comes straight from the CIA, the Council on Foreign Relations, which has vetted every U.S. war since World War Two, and the Pentagon. Former CIA director James Clapper, who lied to the entire world when he told Congress that the government was not spying on the telephones and personal computers of everyone on the planet, sits on the board. He got away with perjury, and now he’s writing Morgan Freeman’s lying script. Max Boot is a rightwing historian with the Council on Foreign Relations who wants to “beef up” the U.S. military. Evelyn Farkas is also on the Council, and is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense. Norman Ornstein is a scholar at the Republican-dominated American Enterprise Institute. And Charles Sykes is a rightwing commentator.

This is the political company that Morgan Freeman keeps: Zionists, militarists, spies, and rightwing hate-mongers – the real dangers to world peace. When Freeman says that the U.S. is already “at war,” he is effectively demanding an attack on Russia. Under Nuremberg rules, Morgan and others like him are guilty of crimes against peace – which are capital crimes. Freeman is trying to whip up a war frenzy that can only end in nuclear annihilation. That makes Freeman a danger to the human race. A war whore -- not God-like at all.
