Initially was seeking reports on another story about a politician commiting suicide (cf. next post) which led me to the irreverent classic Libertarian
http://obaidkarki.blogspot.com/ the specific political cartoon is at http://obaidkarki.blogspot.com/2018/03/wow-islamophobes-miss-beheading-in.html?m=1 the sarcastic satirical Ron Paul fan stated, 🐫WOW!

22-Year-Old Conservative Lauren Southern Claims ‘Lifetime Ban’ from UK for ‘Allah Is Gay’ Social Experiment
Winning Justice at Standing Rock
Trial dates are set, and it’s a critical hour for our legal efforts. On August 13, Chase Iron Eyes will walk into a North Dakota courtroom and face prosecution for his alleged crimes. The charges? Trespassing on the Lakota’s own sacred land and inciting a riot — when a group of 74 unarmed water protectors peacefully withstood a raid of Last Child’s Camp and subsequent arrest at the hands of fully armed law enforcement officials.
Thankfully, Chase has a dedicated team in his corner. You are among a group thousands strong who stood with Standing Rock in its hour of need, who have followed this story to the courts, and who have taken repeated action to keep the fight for justice on track. Now, in order for that justice to be served, we need your financial support.
Our legal team must — and will — gather a staggering amount of evidence in the coming months. This includes more than 50 depositions, requiring travel to Texas and North Carolina to question, under oath, officials of Dakota Access pipeline parent company Energy Transfer Partners and their hired mercenary security firm, TigerSwan.
In preparation for this moment, the Lakota People’s Law Project staff has spent the past several decades combining investigation, litigation, education, and organizing to create solutions for social reform in the US. Once again, we’re ready to challenge injustice. This time, we are confronting racism and violations of the Federal Civil Rights Act and the Environmental Protection Act in support of our First Amendment rights under the Constitution.
There are several key distinctions about the Chase Iron Eyes case:
We are pursuing a potentially game-changing “necessity defense”;
73 other water protectors can use the evidence we gather in their own defenses;
We successfully petitioned to replace an assigned judge with our preferred judge;
These landmark legal defenses can set precedents that will safeguard all future protectors of water and land, all those who stand in strength to tear down injustice. This case is being fought for all of us who care about indigenous rights, all of us who care about the First Amendment, and all of us who care about Mother Earth. Your support now can help Chase make history.
Wopila — we thank you!

P. S. The upcoming trials — and surrounding public education — will not only exonerate our clients; they will expose the injustices perpetrated by state-sponsored private military operations. We will continue to provide updates to you as the team uncovers the truth and explores the extent of the rights violations at Standing Rock. With your continued aid, we will turn the tide in this country at its darkest hour. With your support, we will prevail.

◊April is just around the corner. This means we’re rolling into Earth Month! Earth Day is April 22nd, but many celebrate all month long. Well, there are some of us that celebrate all year long. You know, , folks like us.
Earth Month means that I am gearing up for lots of events, and I cannot wait to share them with you! I’m doing something a little different with my weekly email. I’m using this as a little bit of a roundup of weekly happenings and things I’m currently loving.
Here’s what’s new on the blog:
Zero Waste Hostess Gifts – I go to a lot of parties, and I don’t like showing up empty handed. Grab a few of my favorite gifts to bring.
Why You Should Recycle Less – I’m talking all about recycling. Did you know China recently put a ban on plastic and paper recycling?
5 Places to Find Zero Waste Supplies – If you’re looking for zero waste supplies, here’s five places you should look.
Here’s one of my favorite new photos!
Here’s a quote that’s really resonating with me, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller. I love Buky Fuller. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s worth reading up on. A revolutionary who was far ahead for his time.
I’m also currently digging roasted sweet potatoes and homemade peanut butter. I hope you have a wonderful week!
Commented as Ahgamen Keyboa, site user: I will have to check this out at SUNNy New Paltz and Vassar Poughkeepsie. Although I Ahgamen knew Andy Warhol not, I’m associated with some of the Warhol factory members, such as photographer Billy Name and Ivy Nicholson. Ivy appears in my movie Protesters (director Tasciotti) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0629833/ This is an amazing thing, what a blast from the past. I’m interested in art history and pop culture. As such I’ve been studying the movements and influential figures. Andy Warhol is one of those who successfully capitalized on his activities, notably commericalizing everything he did. What pop and satire! Is it art? Is it good art? What art is good? I dunno, it’s in the eye of the beholder, it’s all opinion. My opinion of late, is that I prefer realism, landscapes and portraits especially. I do use digital and electronically-enhanced art, but what I am moving back towards is manually-done paintings and sculpture. I have nothing against Warhol. It’s fascinating and a historical part of America’s past and that of the whole world.
After reading this article, looks like it is going to agree with the second half of my prediction, which was posted March 9, more than 5 days ago. read initial posting below this UPDATE
I am Ahgamen-Keyboa, researcher, naturalist, painter, author, historian, sometime psychic. The weather has been extreme in the Northeast U.S.A. of the past two months, from January to the present March 7, 2018 (publishing this 12:30am March 9). This region also includes the parts of Canada adjacent, their southeastern sector, as weather movements know no nationality barriers!
If we were to compare this winter to other winters of the past few decades, it could be deemed as average and the standard. It’s going to be cold, that’s going to freeze the ground, it’s going to freeze the precipitation, there’s going to be snowfall periodically. This region is known to be cold and wet in winter, as opposed to being dry and arid.
There was one highlight of unusual occurrence from February 20-22, 2018. The temperatures went way up and way down. It brought warmth to the region more typical of June weather, practically summer-like! This was not merely in the Northeast region of the U.S.; it began in the Rocky Mountains region, especially in Colorado. These record highs were surprising for millions of people, to say the least! It will be remembered for a long time.
Then there has recently been these back to back winter storms! Two noreasters in a row. We are just now in the midst of the second one and clean-up is not finished. In fact, as I am now able to share this, there was no electricity or internet to post my article on March 8. when I wanted to. Power outages were widespread throughout the region.
Aside from the relatively normal and average year with the odd exceptions, I’ve been taking a careful look at my charts and permutations. Basically, I have been crunching some of the pertinent facts and trying to make interpretations. I noticed something and I’m going out on a limb to state that I discovered a pattern. It is such that I can extrapolate this and make a prediction. If I am right, then I will be able to continue with the methodology. If I am wrong, then I will go back to the drawing board and try again.
It seems to me that there is a high probability of another major winter storm. Let me describe the scenario: It is possible that around March 16th to the 17th (2018) there will be another unseasonably warm event. This means that it could approach record high temperatures in the Northeast and possibly extend into southern areas of the East Coast, as well as northwards into Canada.
What will follow possibly is another weather maker. It could move into the region late on March 17th. It should be a lot of precipitation and possibly some windy turbulence. If the temperature is able to drop enough from the previous days, then it will bring quite a bit of snow.
Basically, the storm will carry through March 18th and into part of the 19th. It would be considered a very late winter weather event, considering that the Spring Equinox is only days away, the official start of Spring season. This is unusual for the region. I am predicting this more than 10 days in advance. We’re going to find out. It’s kind of exciting!
Can hardly wait for the pleasant days of Summer. When all the trees and plants will be in bloom and fruits will be ready for harvest!
