Why is it that the liberals can’t seem to make friends with the Native Americans? First, Elizabeth Warren thought she was one of them, insulting them in the process. Now, Biden’s making enemies, too.
It’s not surprising that the Native Americans don’t want anything to do with the liberals who are too progressive for their own good.
The Washington Redskins have been stripped of a mascot and a name because the progressives (not the Native Americans) decided that it was offensive. Hell, it was an Indian chief that came up with the logo design.
Now, Biden’s gone and pissed off the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation.
Biden hasn’t been looking to make sense with his executive actions. He’s not thinking about the repercussions. Instead, he’s looking to work as quickly as possible to erase Trump’s legacy.
Halting agency approvals for oil and gas permits on federal lands, including tribal lands, was done with haste. And for what? Because it appeases the liberals because they want to hold hands and sing rather than see the land being used the way it was meant to be used.
Well, the Ute tribe isn’t going to be quiet on this one.
The tribe has been running an oil and gas operation on their 4.5-million-acre reservation for decades. They have already requested an exemption from the Interior Department so that they can continue with business as usual.
Luke Duncan, the chairman of the Ute Indian Tribe’s business committee identified that there is a reliance on energy development – it’s used to fund the government and provide services to members. It’s not just the Ute tribe affected by Biden’s actions, either. Other tribes produce energy, too.
As Duncan said to the Acting Secretary of the Interior, Scott de la Vega, “your order is a direct attack on our economy, sovereignty, and our right to self-determination.” There was also the reminder that Indian lands are not federal public lands.
Biden has been promptly put into his place. Yet again, he focused on appeasing the loudmouth liberals without giving any thought as to how it would affect the Native Americans. Well, they’re here to tell Biden exactly how it will affect them.
They see it as a direct attack – and centuries ago, that would have meant war. Will the Native Americans act out in a violent way? It depends on whether they get the order withdrawn or amended.
Biden’s done more than just hurt some of the Indian tribes with his orders, too. He also revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline – something he did within hours of getting into office. Singlehandedly, he managed to kill over 10,000 jobs directly – and tens of thousands more indirectly.
Does the pandemic mean nothing to Biden? People are unemployed – we need to be making more jobs, not destroying the ones that are already out there.
Now, it’s a wait and see game. The Indian tribes have to wait to see what the Interior and Biden are going to do about the order. According to the Ute tribe, the order is against federal law and policies.
They’re angry – and they have every right to be.
Biden is constantly making bad decisions – and it’s all so that he can stand out as being different from Trump. The problem with that is, there are a number of decisions Trump made that helped the country. Trump never had enemies with the tribes. Perhaps it’s time that Biden takes a look at how to keep Americans happy instead of getting them enraged each time he writes another executive order.
If Elizabeth Warren could earn the nickname of Pocahontas, what do we get to call Biden? Crazy Horse may certainly be a good one, but there are definitely more promising names. The Crazy Horse Census found in the Nebraska Historical Society shows that there have been some real doozies of names given out over the years. Perhaps we can just forever refer to him as Dog-Faced Pony Soldier.
