The Cliven Bundy Standoff: Wounded Knee Revisited?

•, By William Norman Grig
  Could anyone expect less? – General Philip Sheridan, who presided over the expropriation of the Plains Indians, in the 1878 Annual Report of the General of the U.S. Army

Following the War Between the States, as the formerly independent South was being re-assimilated into the Soyuz, the US military took up the task of driving the Plains Indians off of land that had been promised to them through solemn treaty obligations – but was now coveted by the corporatist railroad combine.

In 1867, William Sherman wrote a letter to General Grant insisting that “we are not going to let thieving, ragged Indians check and stop the progress” of the railroad. About a year earlier, Sherman had urged Grant to “act with vindictive earnestness against the Sioux, even to their extermination, men, women, and children.” Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo points out that Sherman set out to make the Sioux “feel the superior power of the Government,” even if “the final solution to the Indian problem” required that they be physically annihilated.

Yabut, BLM people are NOT part of the Federal Government. They only appear to be, because they say that they are. In fact, all of the people in Washington are not part of the Federal Government. Why not? They have broken their oaths of office, thereby not only alienating themselves from Federal Government, but becoming treasonous traitors thereby, as well.
