Supreme Court Reestablishes Oklahoma Region as Creek Indian Reservation

In the Treaty of 1856, Congress promised that “no portion” of the Creek Reservation “shall ever be embraced or included within, or annexed to, any Territory or State.”

This week, the Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in the case McGIRT v. OKLAHOMA that the Creek Nation within Oklahoma is reestablished as an Indian reservation.

The Court also ruled the state of Oklahoma does not have jurisdiction over Native American Jimcy McGirt’s case on Indian land, which will most likely be retried in federal court. Other cases could also be repealed. Read more on complicated Tribal law at FBI.gov.

The dissent

Justice John Roberts wrote that Congress’ cumulative body of legislation sufficiently disestablished the CREEK nation, and it is NOT necessary for Congress to specifically declare it disestablished.

However, in ruling against the Trump Administration in the DACA case, Roberts said the administration did not follow exact proper procedures. Interesting.

Indian Slave Owners

The Five Tribes of Creek, Cherokee, Chickasaws, Choctaws, and Seminoles whose members collectively held at least 8,000 slaves, signed treaties of alliance with the Confederacy and fought against the North.

After the Confederate loss new treaties were made stating the Tribes had “ignored their allegiance to the United States” and were “liable to forfeit” all “benefits and advantages enjoyed by them.” These western lands became the Oklahoma Territory.

New York City: Violence Escalates, Police Budget Slashed

The Declaration of Independence, Info from Hillsdale College

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

“When, in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be, Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

PANTHERS’ PLATFORM

  • WE WANT full employment for our people.
  • WE WANT an end to the robbery by the CAPITALIST of our Black Community.
  • WE WANT decent housing, fit for the shelter of human beings.
  • WE WANT education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society.
  • WE WANT all black men to be exempt from military service.

They also demand defunding police, freedom from heteronormative thinking and freeing prisoners, which didn’t work so well for retired police Captain David Dorn.

Ironically, donations to Black Lives Matter goes through ActBlue Charities to the Democrats, whose members founded the KKK..

Aristotle’s Tactics and Arguments for the Individual

Aristotle (384 – 322 B.C.) taught the authority of the thinking individual, in contrast to the collectivist ideals of his friend Plato. Individuals have their own ability to reason, according to Artistotle, with the ultimate human goal being their own happiness in accordance with moral and intellectual virtue.

Aristotle had to flee Athens fearing the fate of the previously executed Socrates (470 – 399 B.C.) Both philosophers were charged with “impiety.”
