While we’ve all been preoccupied with the national elections and the latest Fake vs. Real Media controversy, enjoying watching President-elect Trump call the top producers and journalists from the leading “mainstream media” outlets on the carpet of his golden tower… a more important turning point in our humanity is reaching its crescendo.
Far out West, in North Dakota, a 9-month standoff between Oil & Water has received only the most superficial news coverage from both the mainstream media or alternative press. Yet this is bigger than the Bundy / BLN standoff and repeats the same abuses of Eminent Domain. And as the tinder fires in our North Georgia mountains and the 5 (FIVE!) Colonial Pipeline leaks in this year alone show, this is a more clear and present danger to our environment than Climate Change. And with heavily-armed mercenaries (security guards paid for by the pipeline) and law enforcement officials wantonly shooting unarmed people who are exercising their 1st Amendment Rights, and spraying them with freezing water cannons and concussion grenades, this is a bigger miscarriage of justice than we saw at Ferguson.
