“LINCOLN, Neb. — An American Indian tribe sued some of the world’s largest beer makers Thursday, claiming they knowingly contributed to devastating alcohol-related problems on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.”
I talked to my friend Joy about bringing a abstinence program to her people, the Oglala Sioux. She showed me her kindred, famous Sioux chiefs, some who signed a federal oath to never pick up a bow and arrow in anger, again. This comes from SHAME-BASED Christians who allow foreign survivors of the Holocaust to be warriors in the new nation of Israel founded in 1947 by secular socialists who were gymnists and weight lifters.
I want to introduce native Americans to the Hebrew Warrior, Samson, a strong man who lost his divine power when tricked into consuming alcohol by his wife and his enemies, the Philistines. He got his power back, and forcefully circumscised the Philistines who were his wife’s kindred.
If LSD can help save the lives of America’s first people, then perhaps a new Ghost Dance that produces spritual visions, is what is called for.
If law makers can make laws for the foreign Papal Virgin Cult in regards to what is put on a male penis while making love, then laws can be made to protect the religious freedom of the folks who were here – first!
I am also looking at another Free Soil party that was key to the founding of the Republican Abolitionist Party, and promoted by my kindred. If we can open up pristine lands to oil companies, then we can open lands for We The New Pioneer Patriot People, the PPP.
“The land is part of the contract between God and the people. It
belongs not to the people – but to God who gives it to them – on loan as it were – so that they may fulfill their part of the bargain.”
Leviticus chapter 25, verse 23:
“The land shall not be sold in perpetuity; for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and settlers with Me.”
“Bring in the Virgin Mary” was the order of the Indian who
officiated as bailiff of the Indian court, of which Chief John Grass and two other Sioux are members.
A year ago I posted about my friend, Joy, who descends from the
Lakota Chiefs, John Grass, and John Gall. Joy showed me her family photo album where her grandfathers are standing with what looked like Catholic priests. I believe they were Benedictine monks from the Einsiedeln monastery in Switzerland where a Black Madonna is revered.
It is alleged the Knights Templars revered the Black Madonnas and
were the Bankers of the World.
“In 1854 a colony was sent to the United States from Einsiedeln to
work amongst the native Indian tribes.
My Rosemont/Rosamond ancestors revered a Black Madonna at Janskirk
church in Holland and were members of the Swan Brethren.
I am considering founding the Bank of God based upon my discovery
that Jesus had restored the Jubilee where debts are forgiven and
slaves set free. I believe Jesus celebrated the Shavuot on the Mount
of Olives and established a New Pentecost that returned the land to
the Children of God. This led to a war with Rome in 68 A.D. that
resulted in the destruction of the temple.
I believe there are prophecies coming together in America, where the
Meek will inherit the Earth. I believe Bankers owe the American
People for SAVING them, and they should tithe to the Bank of God that
will make sure our Nation’s wealth will directly trickle down to the
poor, the hungry, and the disenfranchised.
“He was questioned as to his belief in the comingof the Messiah, and
it was found that he not only believed that the Messiah was coming
and that he would bring with him the buffalo, but he would also have
the power to furnish each Indian with a springwagon by the motion of
his hand. This man was sent to the guardhouse to be confined until
morning, when he was to be taken to the line between the two
agencies, and, after being warned not to return,was to be turned
loose upon his own reservation.
Chief Gall treated the matter very seriously and said to
areporter: “I listen. Since this excitement has come upon my people I
sit and listen and wonder if these things can be possible.”
LINCOLN, Neb. — An American Indian tribe sued some of the world’s largest beer makers Thursday, claiming they knowingly contributed to devastating alcohol-related problems on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
The Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota said it is demanding $500 million in damages for the cost of health care, social services and child rehabilitation caused by chronic alcoholism on the reservation, which encompasses some of the nation’s most impoverished counties.
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court of Nebraska also targets four beer stores in Whiteclay, a Nebraska town near the reservation’s border that, despite having only about a dozen residents, sold nearly 5 million cans of beer in 2010.
Tribal leaders and activists blame the Whiteclay businesses for chronic alcohol abuse and bootlegging on the Pine Ridge reservation, where all alcohol is banned. They say most of the stores’ customers come from the reservation, which spans southwest South Dakota and dips into Nebraska.
“You cannot sell 4.9 million 12-ounce cans of beer and wash your hands like Pontius Pilate, and say we’ve got nothing to do with it being smuggled,” said Tom White, the tribe’s Omaha-based attorney.
Owners of the four beer stores in Whiteclay were unavailable or declined comment Thursday when contacted by The Associated Press. A spokeswoman for Anheuser-Busch InBev Worldwide said she was not yet aware of the lawsuit, and the other four companies being sued — SAB Miller, Molson Coors Brewing Company, MIllerCoors LLC and Pabst Brewing Company — did not immediately return messages.
The lawsuit alleges that the beer makers and stores sold to Pine Ridge residents knowing they would smuggle the alcohol into the reservation to drink or resell. The beer makers supplied the stores with “volumes of beer far in excess of an amount that could be sold in compliance with the laws of the state of Nebraska” and the tribe, tribal officials allege in the lawsuit.
The vast majority of Whiteclay’s beer store customers have no legal place to consume alcohol since it’s banned on Pine Ridge, which is just north, state law prohibits drinking outside the stores and the nearest town that allows alcohol is more than 20 miles south, said Mark Vasina, president of the group Nebraskans for Peace.
The Connecticut-sized reservation has struggled with alcoholism and poverty for generations, despite an alcohol ban in place since 1832. Pine Ridge legalized alcohol in 1970 but restored the ban two months later, and an attempt to allow it in 2004 died after a public outcry.
The reservation spans impoverished areas, including Shannon County, S.D., which U.S. census statistics place as the third-poorest in the nation. It has a median household income of $27,300 and nearly half of the population falls below federal poverty standards.
Tribal President John Yellow Bird Steele said the tribe council authorized the lawsuit in an effort to protect the reservation’s youth.
“Like American parents everywhere, we will do everything lawful we can to protect the health, welfare and future of our children,” he said.
The tribe views the lawsuit as a last resort after numerous failed attempts to curb the abuse through protests and public pressure on lawmakers, White added. He said the tribal council voted unanimously about four months ago to hire his law firm.
One in four children born on the reservation suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, and the average life expectancy is estimated between 45 and 52 years — the shortest in North America except for Haiti, according to the lawsuit. The average American life expectancy is 77.5 years.
“The illegal sale and trade in alcohol in Whiteclay is open, notorious and well documented by news reports, legislative hearings, movies, public protests and law enforcement activities,” the lawsuit states. ” All of the above have resulted in the publication of the facts of the illegal trade in alcohol and its devastating effects on the Lakota people, especially its children, both born and unborn.”
Nebraska lawmakers have struggled for years to curb the problem, and are considering legislation this year that would allow the state to limit the types of alcohol sold in areas like Whiteclay. The measure would require local authorities to ask the state to designate the area an “alcohol impact zone.”
The state liquor commission could then limit the hours alcohol sellers are open, ban the sale of certain products or impose other restrictions.
Nebraska state Sen. LeRoy Louden of Ellsworth, whose district includes Whiteclay, said he introduced the measure with support from county officials who have seen their health care and jail incarceration costs rise.
Alcohol is more harmful than heroin or crack when the overall dangers to the individual and society are considered, according to a study in the Lancet.
The report is co-authored by Professor David Nutt, the former government chief drugs adviser who was sacked in 2009.
It ranked 20 drugs on 16 measures of harm to users and to wider society.
Heroin, crack and crystal meth were deemed worst for individuals, with alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine worst for society, and alcohol worst overall.
The study by the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs also said tobacco and cocaine were judged to be equally harmful, while ecstasy and LSD were among the least damaging.
Professor Nutt refused to leave the drugs debate when he was sacked from his official post by the former Labour Home Secretary, Alan Johnson.
He went on to form the Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, which says it aims to investigate the drug issue without any political interference.
One of its other members is Dr Les King, another former government adviser who quit over Prof Nutt’s treatment.
Members of the group, joined by two other experts, scored each drug for harms including mental and physical damage, addiction, crime and costs to the economy and communities.
