The editorial board for the nation’s top newspaper just took a bold stand for the indigenous groups protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In a scathing editorial just over 500 words, the New York Times condemned the private security firms and law enforcement agencies working on behalf of the Dakota Access Pipeline builders for brutally attacking unarmed protesters. The Times‘ editors pointed out that law enforcement’s use of water cannons on nonviolent protesters in 20-degree weather, as well as its use of tear gas and deployment of “non-lethal” ammunition that injured approximately 160 protesters, has been widely disparaged.

The Times also tied in the current violence being carried out against indigenous people to historic patterns, and even blasted the pipeline builders’ indifference to a changing energy economy. The editorial board alluded to a video posted to the Facebook page of the Morton County, North Sakota Sheriff’s Department as an example:

The department’s video was meant to portray the protesters as dangerous troublemakers, but the photos and videos in news reports suggest a more familiar story — an imbalance of power, where law enforcement fiercely defends property rights against protesters’ claims of environmental protection and the rights of indigenous people. American Indians have seen this sort of drama unfold for centuries — native demands meeting brute force against a backdrop of folly — in this case, the pursuit of fossil fuels at a time of sagging oil demand and global climatic peril.

After pointing out the undue cruelty exacted on the protesters at Standing Rock, the Times called on President Barack Obama to make the most of the last two months of his administration and step in to protect the Standing Rock Sioux’s right to free assembly. Without executive action, the Times concluded that more violence against indigenous water protectors would follow.

Barring that, resolute protesters, a heavily militarized police force unwilling to budge, a company that refuses to consider an alternate route and an onrushing Great Plains winter — how can this possibly end well?

As of this writing, the New York Times is the only editorial board of a national paper of record to take a public stance in favor of the protesters at Standing Rock. The standoff has gone on for roughly 8 months, as indigenous communities argue that the proximity of the pipeline to the Missouri River would endanger drinking water supplies…

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.
