Crazy Horse fights last battle

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 1/8/2020 3:29:26 PM

On January 8, 1877, Oglala Lakota warrior Crazy Horse and his men—outnumbered, low on ammunition and forced to use outdated weapons to defend themselves—fight their final losing battle against the U.S. Cavalry in Montana. Six months earlier, in the Battle of Little Bighorn, Crazy Horse and his ally, Sitting Bull, led their combined forces of Sioux and Cheyenne to a stunning victory over Lieutenant Colonel George Custer (1839-76) and his men. The Indians were resisting the U.S. government’s efforts to force them back to their reservations. After Custer and over 200 of his soldiers were killed in the conflict, later dubbed “Custer’s Last Stand,” the American public wanted revenge.

Every day, the Govt uses lies and threats to keep us all on the reservation. Let us keep just enough to get by, while the Great White Fathers loll about in luxury and get richer and more powerful every day. Some things never change. I miss ol' Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.

My baby sister is married to a Native American. Believe me when I say, from experience, that they didn't lose the war. My brother in law and the 2 children have played the Bureau of Indian Affairs like a fine instrument!

Interestingly enough, this was also the year Democrats effectively started Jim Crow. The 'Great Compromise of 1877' to end political strife and send Rutherford B. Hayes to office, also kicked all federal troops out of the South where they were protecting Republican politicians, up to that point. At that point, the Southern Democrats and their armed wing, the KKK, took control and use that power base to eventually control the entire Federal bureaucracy.

Indeed, thanks for posting. At the bottom of the article are links to other interesting 1/8 events, including Fidel entering Havana in 1959 and Bush 41 puking on Prime Minister Miyazawa in '92.

One of the interesting things about this story is Sitting Bull joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. He became friends with Annie Oakley whom he called Little Sure Shot. Crazy Horse was unwilling to become docile. Custer was a Glory Seeker. And he found what he seeked. Not that it matters but of all of the famed frontiersmen he had the hottest wife.

Is it 'racist' for a sports team to have an Indian as their franchise symbol? We have the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Braves, the Cleveland Indians, The Kansas City Chiefs (who play in Arrowhead Stadium). The Army has Apache attack helicopters, the Navy has Tomahawk cruise missiles, there are dozens of high schools with Indian mascots....but NOT ONE is meant in a disparaging manner. Why would you call yourself a name you thought was beneath you? Every single reference just noted is meant as a token of respect for fighting spirit. The groups who advocate to call anyone a 'racist' for using an Indian name are they themselves racists. By removing or changing the name /reference, we slowly erase all references to Indians and their history. I do not see using Indian names as 'racist' or disparaging, but as a token of respect.

She is also a world-champion water skier and a former capital defense attorney, having represented clients on death row. Those three things are all related, more so than you might imagine.

WASHINGTON—Eleven pages of State Department documents released on Jan. 7 in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch show that Jonathan Winer, an assistant to then-Secretary of State John Kerry, used his private email address to convey information he received from former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to top U.S. diplomatic officials. “I will send them to her [his assistant, Nina Miller] from my non-State email account, not copying myself,” Winer said in response to a December 2014 email from Paul Jones, principal deputy assistant secretary for European Affairs.

Joe Biden has had a bizarrely easy time of it as the frontrunner of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. Few of his competitors have attacked him directly, and those who did (like Kamala Harris and Julián Castro) have mostly dropped out of the race. However, it appears Biden's free ride is finally coming to an end. With actual primaries coming up soon and no sign his lead is disappearing, his top rivals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have begun attacking his record — Sanders explicitly, and Warren with the release of a bankruptcy reform plan that would overturn one of the blackest marks on Biden's Senate career.ny.

I ordered Powerbeats earbuds from Amazon the other day. As a Prime member, I got them to my doorstep in Stowe, Vermont the next day for free. When I unpacked the box, one of the accessories was missing. I called Amazon’s customer service to get a replacement sorted out. But what I was told raised my eyebrows: “We’ll make a one-time exception. Keep the earbuds and we’ll issue you a full refund right now.” “Why don’t you take them back? They are fine, it’s just the wire clip is missing,” I asked, puzzled. “It’s too expensive to ship them back…” the customer rep replied.

At the root of our climate problem, writes Pope Francis in his ecological encyclical Laudato Si, lies our human pride and arrogance: “The misuse of creation begins when we no longer recognize any higher instance than ourselves, when we see nothing else but ourselves.” (Snip)When we were still living as hunter-gatherers, our ecological footprint was substantially higher, per capita, than today. Our ancestors laid a larger claim on the ecosystem, in return for a much lower standard of living. With a population of no more than a few million, humans managed to wipe out all of the large land animals almost everywhere they set foot.

FAIRFIELD, Iowa—Inside the Raj, an idyllic French country-style spa and resort nestled among cornfields in southeastern Iowa, I asked for the gemstone light therapy, which promised to deluge me with inner peace, expand my consciousness and increase my energy. But they told me I wasn’t ready. So I had to settle for the tongue reading and pulse assessment. Several minutes into having a bald and shoeless Australian stranger peering at my papillae, I wondered what I had gotten myself into. I had traveled to Fairfield and nearby Maharishi Vedic City to try to understand the appeal of Marianne Williamson, a spiritual guru running for president.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is upset. She let her caucus impeach President Trump on dubious charges with a narrow partisan majority and without taking the time to gather evidence that she now believes must be heard in a Senate trial as it might convince a skeptical public. And now, huge surprise, the Republican Senate appears poised to send the resulting impeachment articles straight to the circular file. As of Friday, Pelosi was still withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate.

Late last year Chick-fil-A ruffled feathers across the fruited plain when they announced they would no longer provide charitable donations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Salvation Army. Both organizations had faced years of withering attacks from sex and gender revolutionaries who were angered because the two renowned Christian ministries affirmed the biblical definition of marriage. So when Chick-fil-A made their decision public, many Christians accused the company of backing down to a bunch of militant LGBTQ bullies. And in response many of Chick-fil-A's staunchest supporters flew the coop.

As she wrapped up her weekly news conference, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked if she would attend the San Francisco 49ers' NFL playoff game this weekend. "It would be my intention to go," she said. "I have, unfortunately, responsibilities to save our country from peril." Some in the briefing room laughed at the remark. Pelosi did not elaborate on what "peril" exactly means. Tensions between the US and Iran escalated this week following a US airstrike that killed Iran's top general. The House is expected to vote today on legislation that could restrain Trump's ability to launch military action against Iran. Meanwhile, Pelosi is also holding onto the articles

The statement came Saturday morning, local time, and blamed 'human error' for shooting down the plane on Tuesday. Specifically, Iranian officials says the aircraft 'took the flying posture and altitude of an enemy target' as it neared the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps base and attending personal didn't recognize it as a passenger plane. 'Under these circumstances, because of human error, [the plane] came under fire,' the statement read, according to the New York Times. Following the grave mistake, Iran's government

No one in the British press really cared about the official reason for the visit, though. At the time, Hollande was living at the Élysée Palace with his girlfriend, but he had just been revealed to have been having an affair with a French actress—he had been darting to her apartment on the back of a scooter, protected by his official security team and his face hidden from view by a motorbike helmet. He had flown into England as the storm still swirled back home.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry complained Thursday that President Donald Trump was ruining everything he and former President Barack Obama achieved with the Iran deal. “He put his disdain for anything done by the last administration ahead of his duty to keep the country safe,” Kerry wrote in a mournful 1,000 word op-ed for the New York Times. The former secretary of state is currently supporting former Vice President Joe Biden for president and campaigning for him in Iowa. Kerry argued the Iran nuclear deal was working, but Trump threw it all away, which only empowered Iran’s Quds Force Commander Qasem Suleimani. “There were no missile attacks on United States facilities.
