As amply demonstrated by the comment thread on my IC op-ed, having a discussion with CERA supporters is a bit like conducting a seminar with meth addicts.
Our friends at IREHR report on the confrontation between CERA and Red Line Salish Sea in Sedro-Wooley, Washington on May 20.
Caitlin Johnstone reports on the skulduggery of the DNC, and the media blackout of the lawsuit in the wake of the sabotaged Sanders campaign.
As Dena Jensen reports, William Honea, Skagit County senior deputy prosecuting attorney –in justifying the CAPR anti-Indian workshop in Sedro-Wooley on May 20–falsely attributed an incendiary quote to Swinomish tribal chairman Brian Cladoosby. Given that Mr. Honea–like CERA celebrity Elaine Willman–was given a platform on KGMI radio to promote racist resentment, it is perhaps a good time for human rights activists and moral authorities to pursue having Saturday Morning Live removed from its programming. After four years of hosting anti-Indian racists on her show, it’s time for KGMI to pull the plug on Tea Party leader Kris Halterman.
As reported at Noisy Waters Northwest, CERA–the “Ku Klux Klan of Indian country”–made an appearance in Skagit County yesterday, four years after the CERA anti-Indian conference in Whatcom County. The 2013 CERA gathering targeted Lummi Nation, while the 2017 CAPR workshop targeted Swinomish Tribal Community.
The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians–Lummi and Swinomish included–oppose fossil fuel export on the Salish Sea, providing an opportunity for promoters of interracial discord to cash in on the carbon corridor conflict.

The only way House Republicans would bring articles of impeachment against President Trump is if the RNC concluded he was doing irreparable harm to the GOP. For that reason alone, Democrats should do everything possible to make sure he fills his full term in the Oval Office.
