|Chasing McCain off Navajo Nation
The brazen acts that the cardboard Flim Flam man of new media didn’t want you in 2015
By Brenda Norrell
Censored News pick for the most brazen act of 2015: Navajos Chasing Arizona Sen. John McCain off the Navajo Nation. Fabulously called “Snake McCain,” by San Carlos Apaches fighting McCain’s new copper mine with his best buddies at Resolution Copper, McCain’s status as a bottom feeder is absolute.
The fact that McCain is still on the US Senate Committee for Indian Affairs reveals that the Committee was set up to steal Indian land and water rights, and dupe everyone else into believing that the US system works.
Meanwhile, US Homeland Security gave the southern border security contract to Israel’s defense contractor Elbit Systems, manufacturer of drones and Apartheid systems surrounding Palestine.
Now, Elbit is on the southern border and pushing its new spy towers on Tohono O’odham land in traditional O’odham communities. The District of Gu-Vo has said, “No!” to these towers which target traditional O’odham burial grounds. However, Tohono O’odham human rights activists point out that the tribal government was long ago co-opted by the US government and is powerless to protect the Tohono O’odham people from the onslaught of the oppression of the US government and its new partner Israel.
The Bottom Line: Peabody Coal on Black Mesa
Louise Benally of Big Mountain, testifying before the Bureau of Land Management about coal mining in Farmington, N.M, said it best this year.
Although the regional media has been bought and sold with Peabody Coal’s dollars and political influence, Louise Benally describes the 40-year-resistance to coal mining, relocation and McCain:
In my community of Black Mesa in 1974 there was a Congressional legislation known as Public Law 93531 that was passed to remove 10,000 Navajos, 300 Hopis to make way for Peabody coal company.
As of today BLM is the major owner of Navajo Generating Station, and if we’re going to talk about climate change justice for all, let’s shut Navajo Generating Station down! Because it is allowed to continue to pollute and to kill people. This is ongoing as of today.
I want that you as the people of the Department of the Interior do your activities and call the Hopi government to stop impounding people’s animals. The sheep, the goats, the horses, the cattle is what we live off of. That’s our food. That’s our economy. That’s all we have.
We don’t have electricity. We don’t have running water.
Yet the power that is pumped out of Black Mesa goes down to where John McCain is laid out in the sun with his shades on, and he needs to stop stealing our water.
The Colorado River, he’s after again, after we told him so many times no.
The utility companies, they eat the earth up here, suck out her breath out, so they can get electricity and, you know, we are left with nothing. Period. Nothing. Except ourselves and what we have. But yet these coal companies are polluting our air, killing our environment, killing our people through actions of flawed policies. This needs to stop. We’re sick and tired of your greed!
Throughout the continent, the Arctic drilling needs to stop. The pipeline for the oils in the Midwest need to stop that’s coming out of Alberta. You’re sending all that to other countries. India and China needs to be taught how to convert to renewable energies that don’t pollute. That’s the only hope we have.
Now, do your job. Make that change.
US Border Patrol: An Occupying Army
On the issues of the occupying Army of the US Border Patrol on Tohono O’odham land, and what this means for sovereignty, Mike Wilson, Tohono O’odham, and Mark Maracle, Mohawk Warrior, said it best.
Maracle said that Mohawks do not wait for anyone to tell them that they are sovereign. “You don’t have sovereignty unless you assert sovereignty,” Maracle told Censored News.

The Rest of the Story: Peter MacDonald: How lies under oath sent MacDonald to prison, and Navajo Winter’s Doctrine water rights were lost, with letter from MacDonald to Censored News on water rights:
