"Land ... cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by the individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice." - Report from UN's Habitat 1 Conference, 1976
Isn't it just delightful that Montana elected officials, who take an Oath to serve Montana citizens in accordance with the U.S. and Montana Constitutions, prioritize their legislative platform planning by traveling around to all of Montana's tribal government headquarters to gather all of the tribal government desires and whims to be funded by Montana tax dollars. How special! Here is the three-corner stool that motivates these stool pigeons: 1) Tribal governments (not state, county or local) are the ONLY governments that can financially and directly contribute to political parties and elected officials, with no reporting requirements. 2) The $32 billion dollar tribal gaming industry is free money for political contributions, for purchase of lobbyists, land and litigators; 3) Tribal polling precincts are on federal trust property with no oversight/enforcement by Montana Secretary of State. In light of the above, enjoy the news about Montana Democrat Party priorities, noted in the article below.
President Trump and his administration have been in office for just over 500 days. But America is back on track, business and consumer confidence has returned, the nation’s economic engines are again firing on all cylinders, more people are employed than ever before, and the stock markets continue to surge at record levels. A major factor in all these highly positive developments has been the changed mindset in two important federal government offices: the Department of the Interior and Environmental Protection Agency. The following article recaps some of the major changes these two offices have initiated – ensuring that the United States is once again producing its abundant fossil fuel energy and operating under commonsense environmental policies and regulations. Just imagine what the next 950 or 2400 days will bring! Best regards, Paul Driessen
