Update 7 Feb 2017 : Obscene Media Blackout: Standing Rock Militarized Police Butchery. Shooting Genitalia. Threatening to Rape Oil Protesters



United States militarized police have seriously injured countless innocent Americans by shooting their genitals and backs of heads so the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) at Standing Rock construction can proceed. The project completion has been ruled illegal and media has blacked out the bloody horror. Highly disturbing graphic accounts were presented Monday. Even such observers of recent gory scenes there are traumatized, as though reporting on war-torn countries where US troops shoot innocent people fleeing with hands up, same as recently happening at Standing Rock. Military bulldozers, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected trucks, Long Range Acoustic Device sound cannons and psychological weapons, such as threatening to rape protesters, have been employed against Americans in the heart of the United States — all for protecting oil corporation profiteers, against “We the people”, Americans’ rights to clean water, health, dignity and to protest.

Update: Fri. 18 Nov 2016: Army, UN Defend People, Not US President. Chilling Video


The United States Army has taken temporary action to protect Americans by defending their human survival rights in the historic American battle at Standing Rock over the Dakota Access Pipeline and the United Nations has condemned newly elected President Trump-linked Energy Transfer Partners security forces’ “cruel and inhumane” treatment of protesters. This news follows Tuesday’s historic global protests against the pipeline. Energy Transfer CEO financial contributed to Trump’s campaign and Trump is an investor in Energy Transfer.

Trump had called for Americans to revolt to right the “great and disgusting injustice” and “disaster for a democracy” related to such corporations’ New World Order corporate rule while, unbeknown to supporters, was in bed with the NWO. He is expected to approve the controversial pipeline when in office, fueling potential violence as most Americans, the Army Corps, the UN, and increasingly more police and sheriffs stand with the people, law and order – against the pipeline, its corporate rule and criminality.

The 1,200-mile pipeline would carry 500,000 gallons of crude oil daily from North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa to a distribution point in Illinois, where it would then be transported to other countries, including China.

Police Marking Numbers on Bodies

Police marking numbers on bodies of protesters detained in dog kennels has been a last straw for many Americans, including some police officers, sheriffs and other law enforcement officers, who stepped down. Millions are demanding that President Barack Obama intervene in the $3.8 billion Dakota Pipeline Access construction, the site of daily atrocities. Tuesday proved that the world is not only watching the corporate versus the people battle. People in over 300 cities across the globe rallied in solidarity with Americans being inhumanely abused for their attempt to secure their human right to water and Standing Rock Sioux sacred cultural sites.

UPDATE 17.NOV 2016 Robert Kennedy Jr: DAPL is Illegal, Injurious, Deadly
Robert Kennedy Jr., environmental activist, author and attorney, described this week why the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is illegal, injurious and deadly. Kennedy, the nephew of President John Kennedy and son of former U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy is the president of WaterKeeper Alliance, the largest, global, non-profit organization protecting the planet’s water. Over 300 Waterkeeper organizations in 34 countries are protecting waterways around the world, many of whom joined this week’s international protest against the DAPL.

Update: Sat 17.9.16

The AFL-CIO announced formally supporting development of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, the project fiercely opposed by Native American tribes and environmentalists nationally. The $3.7 billion development has prompted mass protests led by members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who say their sovereignty would be trampled and the water supply for millions of people imperiled if the project continues.

In a statement Thursday, the AFL-CIO told three falshoods. It said the pipeline provides “high-quality jobs;” makes the U.S. “more competitive;” and “addresses the threat of climate change.”

UPDATE: SAT 17.9.16 2:30 PM PST

The author apologizes for depicting a photo supposedly of Standing Rock with thousands of protesters. Cross-referencing on the image database shows the photo is a Getty Images photo of the Woodstock Music Festival, taken August 15, 1969, according to USUncut that asserts: "While the protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline construction site are important and should certainly be applauded, posting and sharing images claiming to show the protest without double-checking to make sure the photos are what they claim to depict actually undermine the cause of the protesters."

UPDATE: Sat. 17.9.16 8:30 AM PST:

Fight Back News reports approximately 1000 people assembled at Colorado State Capitol on Sept. 8, in solidarity with Standing Rock indigenous people against Dakota Access Pipeline. "Four groups led by Native American organizers converged on the capitol, chanting, 'No more oil, keep it in the soil!' and 'Water is life!'”

"The pipeline will be about a half mile off the reservation, but it is still a treaty territory," said Molly Ryan-Kills Enemy of the Sicangu Lakota, from St. Francis, South Dakota, on the Rosebud Reservation. "They have already dug up on sacred ground, where many of our ancestors are lying. It’s about desecrating sacred ground, and how it’s going to impact our future generations and our earth.”

Ryan-Kills Enemy, the principle organizer of the event continued, “When those pipelines break, it will contaminate the water, and it will not be drinkable. We won’t have anything for our children. This isn’t just a Native American issue. It’s an earth issue, a human being issue.”

Ultimately, the message of the rally was one of unity, with many Native Americans reiterating that the fight against corporate power is a global matter.

UPDATE: Friday 10 AM PST: Two #NoDAPL Phenomenal Photos Prove Shameless Pro-Genocide Media Black-Out Conspiracy

Author's Note: The following article was inadvertantly based on fraudulent information, possibly driven by a paid PR company working agianst the protesters.

"Make this go viral today!" protesters assert. The “No Dakota Access Pipeline” (#NoDAPL) protest is such a huge historical event, demonstrating solidarity against dirty fossil fuel industry profiteers’ genocide, that helps fund corporate-governmentt media, it is no surprise America’s primary mind-control tool, mainstream media, is conducting an equally massive black-out of the historic demonstration. The photo featured here (above) proves just how gigantic this protest is, and how equally gigantic the black-out is, despite media knowing this event is the largest native American gathering in over 100 years, militarized police and FEMA removed all drinking water from the protest grounds and made mass arrests at gunpoint with semi-automatic rifles.

For over a month, as their numbers swelled first from all over the nation and then, from South America as far away as Peru, demonstrators have criticized the lack of media reporting of their actions.

Stay Informed: Standing Rock DAP Updates here on BIN

When over 100,000 protesters had arrived at Standing Rock to protest the pipeline, most major media sources remained silent.

When militarized police assaulted protesters, the media remained silent.

Even when presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein and Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! had warrants out for their arrest, the American propaganda machine kept media’s tight lid fastened.

Over 3,000 concerned citizens gathered in front of the White House on Tuesday to tell President Barack Obama #NoDAPL — can the pipeline for good.

Facebook users have pleaded that alternative, progressive media report the event. For example, two days ago, Bc EchoHawk of Oak Park, IL, United States posted this photo:

Facebook user EchoHart wrote under this photo on Facebook:

“North Dakota. The United States of America. 2016. You need to know what is happening. The tribes are not speaking up for only themselves, but for all people who rely on clean water to live. You do drink water, don’t you? This little girl is standing up for you. #NoDAPL

UPDATE: Wed. 14.9.16 6:30 PM PST: NoDAPL Solidarity Soars. LA Targeting Big Oil’s Citibank

The NoDAPL protest soared Wednesday with an announcement that LA rights defenders are targeting a new level to halt the pipeline, according to an email sent to Deborah Dupré.

“We will confront Citibank for their role in the pipeline project,” vowed LA activists, the nation’s premiere protesters. The action at Citibank is to be preceded by a short teach-in and sign making gathering. 

“We will meet  by the big water fountain, have open discussions on methods of nonviolent direct action and general DAPL issues, a water blessing, make signs and march to protest in front of CitiBank.”

Wed. 14.9.16: Petrochemical Military Police Unleash Bloody Terror on Fearless Indian War Recruits (Video)

Americans have before them at Standing Rock a hostile ordeal of a most grievous kind involving militarized police pointing semi-automatic weapons at the largest Native American gathering in over 100 years, over 1000 suffering in the struggle to protect America’s water.

Standing Rock Sioux allied tribal travelers and others have journeyed from across the nation and continent as far as Peru to peacefully protest a pipeline hazardous to human survival due to its inevitable poisoning millions of people downstream. Many citizens for months have sacrificed all comforts to halt the Dakota Access from its pipeline construction.

Pointing loaded semi-automatic weapons at the native Americans and allies from across the nation as far as Peru, militarized police made a mass arrest or 22 people Tuesday, starting with reporters.

Police issued a one-time warning to the “water protectors” that they would arrest any trespasser. This warning was after several people locked themselves to construction equipment in peaceful acts of civil disobedience Tuesday. Police claimed that people were interfering with equipment.

As Dupré reported last week, Google is censoring videos showing militarized police brutality, such as the one showing police stuffing a live person into one of their new live body bags. Facebook is also more heavily censoring videos, such as the one made of the riot police arresting the Dakota Access pipeline protesters at Standing Rock.

The video below of yesteday’s arrests is working at the time of this publishing.

Last week, black shirts (private security guards) working for Dakota Access oil pipeline constriction unleashed vicious dogs on the protesters. Graphic photos showed protesters being treated for injuries from the attacks as menacing-looking dogs were brought to terrorize the protesters. The Standing Rock tribal spokesman said multiple protesters were pepper-sprayed and bitten, including a child.

The company’s spokeswoman told Heavy online news that “unwarranted violence occurred on private property under easement to Dakota Access Pipeline, resulting in injury to multiple members of our security personnel and several dogs” on September 3.

“As demonstrators came to stop the tractors, they had encountered private security armed with pepper spray, attack dogs, and zip ties. Warriors on the front line were attacked for protecting the land and water,” wrote one Facebook user. “Pregnant women were maced, young children and horses were attacked by dogs … the water provides life for the animals, the crops, the land, and millions of people.”

The North Dakota protest site at the reservation of the Standing Rock Sioux has grown into “the largest gathering of Native Americans in more than 100 years,” reports the BBC.

The North Dakota governor activated 100 National Guard troops on September 8 in advance of the expected Friday ruling by the federal judge, said Reuters.

Tensions have been growing for months surrounding the pipeline. There were reports of injuries on both sides — of people and dogs — as protesters and security clashed violently on September 3. The tribal chairman contended that burial grounds were destroyed and desecrated by bulldozers.

Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman took one of the most widely shared videos of the dogs at the scene, now faces criminal trespassing charge, an assault on a free press.

The sole presidential candidate on the protest scene, Dr. Jill Stein, also faces a warrant for her arrest.

The Wall Street Journal reports the protests against the $3.8 billion pipeline have united “groups of Native Americans, landowners and environmentalists.”

#NoDAPL solidarity protests are slated across the United States.

In Dallas, TX the protest is outside of pipeline company Energy Transfer Partners HQ.

      Who will protect us from our protectors?

    • Deborah Dupre

      With the national guard, militarized police and black shirts, it seems justifiable to be very concerned that there will be more blood shed. Indigenous people know best that humanity is on the cusp of self-destruction. They seem most prepared to defend their families and communities and Mother Earth fro that.

    • smfresh82

      I hope all of these private security personnel and federal gov’t employees who are carrying out unconstitutional orders realize they will be hung with their masters. they should really think about who’s side they are on. no one is going to stop fighting the tyranny in this country. be sure to remind everyone of this. we will prevail. they will go down. Nuremburg like trials do not excuse crimes with a defense of “I was just following orders.”

      Americans are fed the fuck up. It’s time the gov’t fears the people. What do we have to lose at this point? They will not stop until enough people push back and say no more.

    • Ideas Time

      When the protesters start showing up armed and shoot the attack dogs in self defense, I wonder what the corporate employees working under the Color of Law will do.

      I hope that EVERY one of those Cops gets mowed down the HARD way !!! The only good ones are DEAD ones PERIOD !!!!!!!

      Disabled Navy veteran Joseph Robertson, 77, of Basin, Montana, is now being “dieseled” (moved from federal prison to federal prison in the middle of the night without notice for purposes of harassment)! They (feds, USFS, and especially the EPA) charged this disabled veteran for violation of the Clean Water Act. The government contends that nine stock ponds affect approximately one-tenth (1/10) of an acre of discharged pollutants into the Jefferson River, nearly 60 miles away. The feds are oath-breaking traitors!

      The oath-breaking traitorous feds (EPA) apparently have no problem at all with big oil fracking within dozens of yards of lakes and rivers by millions of oil wells across the country!

      The pipeline is nothing! If you don’t do anything else, go and look at western North Dakota in and around the lakes and rivers! You can see it all via google earth. You will see them everywhere! Seriously! This is a level of outrageous americans can’t comprehend!

      Explanation of fracking from

      “In simplified terms, the fracking process starts with a well that is drilled vertically or at an angle from the surface to a depth of 1 to 2 miles (1.6 to 3.2 kilometers) or more, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The vertical well is then encased in steel and/or cement to ensure the well doesn’t run the risk of leaking into any groundwater.

      Once the vertical well reaches the deep layer of rock where natural gas or oil exists, the well curves about 90 degrees and begins drilling horizontally along that rock layer. Horizontal drilling can extend more than 1 mile (1.6 km) from the vertical well bore.

      After the fracking well is fully drilled and encased, fracking fluid is pumped down into the well at extremely high pressure, in some cases exceeding 9,000 pounds per square inch (62,050 kilopascals). The pressure is powerful enough to fracture the surrounding rock, creating fissures and cracks through which oil and gas can flow.”

      This is one of the most mentally flabbergasting topics I have knowledge of in my lifetime! They drill a mile vertically, and then another horizontally, and then force fracking fluids at high pressure to break up the firmament! They say “the fracking well is fully drilled and encased”. But the fracking fluids are shot out the end like a giant freak’n water-pic to break up the underlaying firmament! The fluids are only encased on their way down! Muahahahaha!

      - the huge amounts of “fluids” used to fracture get into the ground water! People with wells in the areas end up with brown contaminated water!
      - Accidents, blowouts, spills, contamination are part of every fracturing site!
      - Oklahoma just shut down dozens of wells. It is believed that the earthquakes they are suffering are caused by the fracturing creating an unstable firmament.

      For each fracking site:

      - 40,000 gallons of fracking chemicals
      - 8 million gallons of water
      - 600 chemicals used in the fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as lead, benzene, uranium, radium, methanol, mercury, hydrochloric acid, ethylene glycol and formaldehyde
      - fracking fluid is injected 10,000 feet through a drilled pipeline and then into the surrounding area

      There are:

      - 1.1 million active fracturing gas wells in the United States
      - 72 trillion gallons of water needed to run current fracturing gas wells
      - 360 billion gallons of chemicals needed to run current fracturing gas wells
      - 300,000: barrels produced per day from fracking gas wells
      - Only ~30 percent of the fracturing fluid is recovered; the rest is left in the ground and, is not biodegradable.

      THIS IS NUTS! But the EPA is A-OK with it! Hunky dorry! No problem at all!

      Average citizen be damned! Scorched earth energy! Screw the people! Big government for big business! Millionaires congressmen getting funding from billionaires in big business! Run a little farm in Oregon, Nevada, Montana, North Dakota, etc. and we will use the entire federal machine to come crashing down on your pitiful little life! F U little Americans!

      You have to look at the following satellite images! They are the lights, and mostly excess gas, capable of heating whole cities, BEING BURNED OFF, instead of captured and sold. You see they don’t care about the natural gas being produced, only the gas we use in our cars matters to them! The light from the burning gas of the Bakken fracking oil fields of North Dakota (the head of the pipeline) are brighter than Denver, Minneapolis, and comparable in size, and brightness, to the city of Chicago!

      They continually say they don’t have to worry about the watershed (that they’ve already destroyed upstream). Yes, they do have a lot to worry about:

      3 million gallons of fracking waste makes its way into the Missouri river!

      All about fracking, and the dangers of fracking:

      This week the state of Oklahoma shut down 37 fracking wells due to last weeks 5.7 earthquake!

      Yes. This is nuts! Freak’n crazy!

      Now continue those peaceful protests, and doggonit write your congressman, cause they care so much about the average “Joe”. Reality check! Our oath-breaking traitorous government no longer has any interest in “the rule of law”, the Constitution, your freedom, or your liberty! Just ask the average “Joe” as he is “dieseled” around the U.S. Federal prison system!

      It’s not laughter you hear coming from the halls of government, and justice. It’s maniacal laughter! They are rolling on the floor with maniacal laughter (ROFML)! Can’t you just picture Killary Klinton ROFMLing, I can, and I’ll bet dollars to donuts, there’s an entry, or a thousand, in the little demonic red book of the bill and killary klinton foundation!

    • Pink Slime

      Want to stop this? The Indians need to show them who is BOSS!!

      • Deborah Dupre

        Thank you, Pink. Very interesting. I’ve been a pacivist all my life. Now, it does seem that will not work with the oil and their thugs protecting them, right? I’ve never been so torn about this. Now it’s a matter of self-defense. Oil kills. That is a reality.

      “Trump had called for Americans to revolt to right the “great and disgusting injustice” and “disaster for a democracy” related to such corporations’ New World Order corporate rule while, unbeknown to supporters, was in bed with the NWO.

      Didn’t Trump put Cheney and Kissinger (his shadow govt. handlers) in the white house (per order of the council of 13 shadow govt?). He must have been ordered by them to approve this.

      Can they be arrested, charged and hung for interfering with the office of the presidency of the United States Of America?

    • Deborah Dupre

      “What do we have to lose at this point? They will not stop until enough people push back and say no more.” It seems you echo what these thousands of protesters feel deep in their bones. If the PTB are going to kill us, it might as well be now with us on our feet with a fighting chance. Otherwise, yes, they will kill us all off and profit that much more from each death – each chemical-filled corpse.

    • smfresh82

      The only reason they are pushing this pipeline is because they lost their oil monopoly in Syria. The rothschilds are being pressured to cooperate with Russia and turned on the Rockefeller/Clinton/Bush regime. they are losing all their wealth quickly desperate to hang on to something. so now they’re trying to run a pipeline here. I doubt they will win this one. there are so many vets out there pissed as hell for being abused by this gov’t and I think they will respond if they try that dog attack macing children bullshit again.

    • Deborah Dupre

      Yes, one does wonder, indeed. These are peaceful protesters, however, exercising their rights to protest that citizens have fought hard to have – they thought.

    • Deborah Dupre

      Prayer wheels spinning for peace there – despite Big Oil’s goons.

    • Deborah Dupre

      Wow. You seem to have a firm handle on what’s happening with DAPL/ You mention “so many” veterans – but I don’t know how many altogether. They are not together on the scene now from what i understand from vets, but I just can’t tell how many are involved and will rally when the call is made. I know they’re very weary of the lies and lives lost for oil and ready to defend what they promised to defend – us. They, however, were not there to help with the latest round of shootings and other violence week before last when 76 more people were arrested.
