# Indigenous / Global
Oil pipeline on Native lands ramps up as Canada honors its Indigenous people. There are concerns the pipeline will contribute to further spills in the distinctive wetlands and wild rice fields of the region, as the company has a long track record of “hazardous liquid incidents,”
including the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history, and failing to follow environmental laws during construction.

# CoronaVirus
Most of humanity has been so driven by fear of “the deadly pandemic, “the invisible enemy” that it has taken multiple unprecedented steps which have caused incalculable harm to the economy, our health, and our freedoms. Tthe government’s VAERS database shows the shots have now caused more harm and more deaths than all vaccines in the last 20 years combined.
This mass psychosis was in response to a virus which the CDC stats show poses little threat to anyone and for which there have been four proven inexpensive treatments since early last year.
COVID Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) seem to be illegal for the following three reasons:
*EUAs cannot be issued if treatments are available — and there are at least 3 inexpensive potentiall treatments that are readily available — with at least one (HCQ) since March 2020.
*EUAs can be issued for vaccines, but the COVID shots do not appear to meet any of the 5 criteria of vaccines and thus cannot be issued by EUA.
*EUAs cannot be issued if known risks outweigh potential benefits which the VAERS data shows is true for the COVID shots.

Legal battles over abortion continue: Abortion remains a constitutional
right under U.S. Supreme Court precedent, but the structure of Texas’

enforcement of the law to private citizens. So far, no court has

lawsuits are in progress.

List of Indian massacres in North America.

# Medical Recalls
FDA announced that Pfizer was voluntarily recalling all lots of Chantix 0.5mg and 1mg tablets. The drug recall is due to the presence of N-nitroso-varenicline. In large enough quantities, N-nitroso-varenicline can be a carcinogen. If this recall sounds at all familiar, it’s because Pfizer back in August issued a similar recall back in August. While that recall involved four lots, the latest recall is far more expansive.

Native American Advocates Push Back Against Attacks on Tribal Lenders:
Native Americans are taking a stand on behalf of tribal lenders amid an onslaught from special interest organizations attempting to push these local businesses that serve an often neglected community out of business.

Genuine tribal businesses are entitled to “tribal immunity,” meaning they can’t be sued. If a payday lender can shield itself with tribal immunity, it can keep making loans with illegally-high interest rates without being held accountable for breaking state usury laws.
