I want a Lakota Passport

The Lakota Indians are withdrawing fro their treaty with the US, and are declaring themselves an independent state. American conservatives all over released a unified groan: "Fudge me. One more border to worry about. Darn!!!"

The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting
Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United
States, leaders said Wednesday.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all
those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are
free to join us," long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a
handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy,
gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a
news conference.

A delegation of Lakota leaders delivered a message to the State
Department on Monday, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing
from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United
States, some of them more than 150 years old.

[...]

Lakota country includes parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences,
and living there would be tax-free — provided residents renounce their
US citizenship, Means said.

A Lakota driving license. And a passport. That should be awesome. I am moving to Lakota land boys, where I won't pay taxes and smoke all the Peyote my heart desires. Fantastic. I wonder who put them up to this?

They also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan
embassies, and will continue on their diplomatic mission and take it
overseas in the coming weeks and months, they told the news conference.

The Bolivian and Venezuelan embassies? Chavez and Morales? Ughh..Nevermind. Not paying taxes and smoking peyote is nice and all, but not if I'll be chilling with those assholes.

      In the matters of being a real human, e.g. sovereign personal political powers. The invented surrogate powers include ‘things’ called “security papers.” These papers, such as a “passport” are owned by the issuing authority. Before the 1970s the “bearer” of the BIA treaty fishing and hunting had “rights”, then came the BIA solicitors and the BAR lawyers to change that to the “tribe” has rights, as “negotiated” by the foreign agent BAR lawyers, pretending to “represent” the natural real human being, possessing absolute rights, extending to some not written or spoken.

      The sovereign real human is acknowledged by the creator of the universe, vote of ‘state,’ the psychologists, the politicians, and even the Kings and Queens, with their ‘titles of nobility.’

      The real human “people” exist as sovereigns and do not look to their artificial ‘agents’ for permission to exist. The invented artificial agents, such as legislators, tribal council/corporate board members, PGO collaborators, BAR association lawyers, judges/administrators of ‘political courts’, agency authorities, military/police enforcement officers, ARE NOT the source of “law.”

      In fact, these surrogate powers do not even know what the definition of “law” might be. Most can not distinguish attributes of law, aspects of society, and the order of estates. They prefer to keep things simpled minded, abstract, to confused the “Indians.” Then come the ‘enfranchised,’ ‘authenticated,’ and ‘certified’ experts, such as the “collaborators” that wrote the United Nations “eternal,” a international “religious corporation,” that wrote the UN Declaration ON the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.”

      Note the collective “Peoples,” which means groups, institutions, corporations, commissions, and the like, NOT your Liberty as a natural being holding “sovereign personal political powers.” When you are a resident, a citizen, an enrolled member, you are a artificial person, and your “rights” are limited and “supervised” rights, to the extent that your “spiritual property,” is “adjudicated by the colonial state authorities, under the “myth of the rule of law.” This commercial law keeps you thinking you are being treated “fairly.” You are, just like the rest of the “property,” the “human resources,” and “goyim.”

      When you get a marriage license, from any agent, the agent become an indispensably interested party in the conception, birthing, raising and teaching of your child. When you baptize your child, the child is given to the church through the “registrar.”

      The “treaties” have been misconstrued by the BAR lawyers, as contracts. When the lawyers operate outside of the “judicial branch of government”, their representation of their clients, those of “unsound mind”, their actions are ‘unconstitutional’ and therefore are ‘unlawful.’ This applies to all sub-departments existing under the IRA 1934 Act.

      Treaties are covenants embracing the operation of the creator of the universe, between “adverse” parties, NOT “collaborating partnerships.” BAR lawyers, “admitted to practice” that advise these partnership are likely to execute misprisions of perjury and treason, according to their own “loyalty promises” to their association, e.g. British Accredited Registry known as the BAR.

      The lawyers first and final loyalty is to the Papal Bulls, and the authorities that license them, admit them to practice, NOT the same as an “oath of allegiance” to a “sovereign.” DO NOT be fooled by the sophistries of “nationality,” “nation state,” and so on. The final rules of the UN eternal international religious corporation, are “final” and absolute. The UN is waiting in the dark corner to save the “Indians” from America (amaraka), and is part of the ‘federal partnership’ inventing “innovative international law,” under their definition, meaning and purpose of “law,” “justice,” “rules,” “statutes,” “regulations,” ALL according to “policy” guidelines and “Market Driven Standards (solutions).

      The ecosystem services “derivatives speculation” model of ‘cap and trade,’ ‘carbon foot print taxation,’ ‘carbon certificates,’ ‘carbon credits,’ ‘conservation easements,’ ‘land trusts,’ ‘swaps,’ ‘exchanges’ is a TRILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS and the ‘native’ banksters fully intend to ‘cash in’ in their Non-profit, profit making private government organizations (PGOs), in the name of environmental “stewardship,” and “settlements.”

    Actually peyote was a thing of the southwestern tribes, not the Lakota. It’s derived from a cactus.

    Oppression at the hands of the US government has taken its toll on the Lakota, whose men have one of the shortest life expectancies — less than 44 years — in the world. Lakota teen suicides are 150 percent above the norm for the United States; infant mortality is five times higher than the US average

    How the hell are their health problems the fault of the United States Government? If they broke the alcohol habit that runs rampant in their communities and ate more sensibly to combat their diabetes problems, their health statistics would be a lot better.

    They continue to take our land, our water, our children,

    The Tonkawas were driven out by the Eastern Apaches, who were in turn run off by Comanches, who were driven out by the etc etc etc …

    Saints, all of them, yep

    Are the Lakota or just Mr. Russell Means withdrawing from the treaty? It would be wonderful if all native groups would follow the Lakota example. That way the US could invade and then absorb the currently semi-autonomous areas and eliminate the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

    The majority of Native North Americans were wiped out by diseases they caught from the Europeans, not by organized slaughter. Often, the diseases (smallpox, diptheria, etc) were passed from one tribe to another without any of them coming into contact with a European. It’s tragic and unfair, but it wasn’t intentional.

    But be comforted. The natives have had their payback several times over with tabacco.

    frankly the spanish killed the most native peoples, and it was the french and indian wars that were the events that caused the most illwill in what were then english colonies. This was all before there even was a United States. The evil done during the french and indian wars included the killing and eating of english colonists children in front of there mothers. It was the French who paid there indian allies for the scalps of english colonialists And the last battle in the indian wars was back in 1880 are you going to tell me that the europeans had a clean history after 1880?

    I spoke with a couple of my representatives in Washington and they all basically said in a nutshell that a withdrawal wouldn’t be recognized by the federal government and any attempts to make their own passports/currency/army/diplomatic relations, etc. would be swiftly dealt with. Their efforts are noble but they will never get recognition on the international level as being independent because the US and allies would veto anything that comes before the UN regarding them. The only ones who would recognize them are rogue countries who dislike the US. They are fighting a loosing battle.

    I was digging around on this some more and found that the individual who said they were seceding from all their treaties with the US to become independent was a Native American rights activist that has no connections/affiliation with the Lakota. Basically, the whole thing was made up from someone’s fantasy: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/2007/12/21/msm-exaggerates-american-indians-claims-seceding-usa

    The official Sioux/Lakota website also makes no mention of any such thing happening: http://www.sioux.org .

    I find it amusing that Russell Means, who still pulls in fat royalty checks from his performance as the father in Last of the Mohicans, is such an activist when the “white man’s Hollywood” isn’t exactly known for positive Native American portrayals.

    So can I secede from Brooklyn?

    I am now the Sovereign State of BrooklynJon. I’m a nuclear-free zone. I’m open for consideration of bilateral trade ties. My first act will be o declare war on the United States, get defeated, and get reparations. Next I’ll go after the Brits. That way they’ll fix my electrical grid. I won’t mess with the French. They’ll actually bomb the crap out of me.

    I was actually happy about the news… until I heard that apparently those ‘declaring’ their independence were not, in fact, authorized to speak for the Lakota nation. :(

    This is the freedom movement gathering momentum. The law of the land is contract law. Rescind every contract and you are free. THe United States is a outlaw corporation out to take over the world. They are not a government as everyone thinks.

    Set yourself free. Read a book by Mary Croft. The world is actually the opposite to what you think. We are all one. Borders are created in our minds.

    The Lakota can legally (nationally and internationally) withdraw from their treaties because they are a nation and not a state (they cannot secede because they are not part of the federation the same way a state is); moreover, it is within the legal bounds of indigenous peoples to participate in world affairs as an independent nation if not an actual one. The delegation led by Russel Means seems to have a lot of popular undofficial support, but there are unsupportive officials and voices as well, but these seem to be in the minority.

    Regardless of what happens, both the US and Canada, amongst others, are going to have to face up to first nations peoples and account for their CONTINUOUS attemtpts to make them invisible or non-existent. They can not continue thier negligent stance towards honouring treaty relations or their system of apartheid that is the cause of economic and social catastrophe in so many First Nations communities in North America.
