👆I have this printed out and look at it DAILY

I am alive and well and frankly tired of all the psychopaths in charge. It's chaos on us, 24/7, on purpose.. all to make us afraid...


I ASK:  Why did recognition take this long? I call this BONKERS:




After state recognition, what comes next for the Mi’kmaq Nation?


PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — The state’s recent recognition of the Mi’kmaq Nation’s right to self-govern now means the real work begins for the tribe.

Gov. Janet Mills signed the Mi’kmaq Restoration Act into law on June 30, recognizing the tribe’s federal status. Now the Mi’kmaq Nation needs funding to build infrastructure, such as a courthouse, or a police station, according to Edward Peter-Paul, chief of Mi’kmaq Nation.

Peter-Paul said the bill reshapes the relationship between the Mi’kmaq tribe and the state government, providing the tribe more authority over its lands. It will open up more opportunities to bring more money to Aroostook County and create more employment, he said. 

The Mi’kmaq Restoration Act ensures the tribe has the same jurisdictional rights and benefits over its internal tribal matters, regulatory authority over natural resources, and substance fishing rights that were also given to the Passamaquoddy, Wabanaki and Penobscot Nations.

Mi’kmaq Nation’s agreement with the Maine Legislature allows the Mi’kmaqs to apply for any federally funded grants or loans needed to build government structure and infrastructure necessary for self-governance.

Residents of the Mi’kmaq Nation Trust Land will be eligible to receive any state grant or loan, according to language in LD 1620. 

“This is a time for growth for us, because we haven’t had these rights,” Peter-Paul said. “This is what we have been fighting for since 1989.”

All of the Mi’kmaq Nation land is in fractured parts of Aroostook County with a large parcel of 800 acres at Loring Air Force Base and another 800 acres in Caribou that includes Spruce Haven and the Mi’kmaq Farms & Fish Hatchery.

Only 3,000 acres of the tribe’s 6,000 acres in Aroostook County falls under the jurisdiction of the Mi’kmaq Nation’s self-governance. The land needs to be in federal trust in order for the Mi’kmaq Nation to have jurisdiction over their land. Half of its acres are in the federal trust with the other half in process of getting put into the trust. 

For now, the Mi’kmaq Nation won’t regulate drinking water, but it will have the authority and option to do it if it wishes.

Mi’kmaq property will be tax exempt from state income tax for any tribal member living on it. The tribe also will be able to come up with a local tax rate on their lands that will benefit the tribe.

The Mi’kmaq Nation, which now can have a legal system, is working to establish a location for its court on its land. At first the Mi’kmaq Nation planned to establish a separate court for the Indian Child Welfare Act, but that area will now be rolled into one court system, Peter-Paul said.

If a non-native person gets charged with a crime on Mi’kmaq Nation land, that person would have a choice to waive their rights in a Maine court to be judged in the Mi’kmaq Nation court or proceed in the Maine court system.

The Mi’kmaq court system will be able to handle any crimes that are not felonies or result in more than a year in jail and administer corrective actions to help rehabilitate their people. A couple of examples for corrective actions are counseling, or community service, according to Peter-Paul.

The tribe’s journey to self-governance has been a difficult one. (YOU THINK?!)

In 1989, the Mi’kmaq Settlement Act was put forward to the tribe. But the tribe didn’t agree to some of the language in it with one sticking point being restrictions that would put Mi’kmaq land completely under the state’s jurisdiction, Peter-Paul said.  The tribes never ratified the act.  The most recent legislation in LD 1620 changes the language so that the tribes have jurisdiction over their own land.

Another problem was a clause in the Maine Indian Land Claims Settlement of 1980 that stated any Native Americans, other than the Passamaquoddys and the Penobscots, shall be fully subjected to the laws of the state, Peter-Paul said.

In the mid-1960s the Micmacs and Maliseets formed the Association of Aroostook Indians in Houlton. The two tribes separated when the Maliseets achieved federal recognition in 1980 with the Mi’kmaqs becoming the Aroostook Micmac Council before gaining federal recognition on Nov. 26, 1991, and changing its name to the Aroostook Band of Micmacs for the state’s purposes.



Perhaps it’s not a coincidence that in the United States both the FCC and FEMA are going to “test capabilities” of the Wireless Emergency Alerts and the Emergency Alert System on October 4th starting at 2:20 pm Eastern time.  They have also announced that if the “test” is delayed, it will be rescheduled for October 11 – less than 24 hours after Pluto has stationed direct.

And maybe the October 4th date is a test for them to track how many of us were savvy enough to turn off our devices while the “test” was being conducted.  Either way, it’s up to each of us as individuals how we feel about the government’s trustworthiness playing with frequencies. (BONKERS!!!)

What if they gave a test, and nobody came? -Timothy Glenn

Expect an emergency alert to appear on your cellphone on October 4

Posted Sep 29, 2023

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An important note to anyone who has a cellphone, radio or TV, you will receive an emergency alert on Wednesday, October 4th.

The alert from FEMA and the FCC is to test the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts this fall. There will be two portions, both of which will go out at 2:20 p.m. ET (1:20 p.m. CT)

The Wireless portion of the test will be sent to all consumer cellphones while the Emergency Alert will be sent to radios and TVs.

The message on cellphones will read: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”

The test will broadcast for approximately 30 minutes. In the case there is widespread severe weather or other significant events and the test needs to be postponed, the back-up date will be on October 11th. 


Canadian scientists with the National Research Council proved already in the 1960s that bird feathers make good receiving aerials for microwave radiation and that low-level microwaves cause birds distress, deteriorated health and mortality.  Spanish biologist Alfonso Balmori has proved that radio waves interfere with nesting and reproduction.  Scientists at the University of Oldenburg in Germany have proved that radio waves interfere with bird migration.

This movie gave me a good cry:

This short film is Christmas At Moose Factory by Alanis Obomsawin.  For this one, Obomsawin (in her debut) sets her story -- or their story -- at a residential school in Canada.  Mostly composed of childrens' drawings -- and then eventually, stills of the children themselves -- the soundtrack has on it stories told by the children to accompany their drawings.  The stories eventually lead to joyful singing.  What we have here is a remarkable document of adolescence and everything that comes with it -- run on stories with very particular and immaculate detail that can only ever be obtained by fresh eyes.

Watch here.

I'll be back soon... Trace
