‘Not With A Bang, But A Whimper’

“On Thursday morning {Feb. 23, 2017}, law enforcement entered the ‘Oceti Sakowin’ camp to do a final sweep before officially shutting it down, ending a months-long protest against the completion of the nearby ‘Dakota Access Pipeline’. 

“The Oceti Sakowin camp was the largest of several temporary camps on the northern edge of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. Protesters have been living on this land for months…

“The ‘North Dakota Joint Information Center’ reports that 46 people were arrested today. Others left the camp voluntarily throughout the day, according to a news release from the center… Continue reading ‘Not With A Bang, But A Whimper’

‘Pipe Fiction’

Canadian media continues to give widespread exposure to unelected, unaccountable, misleading aboriginal race activists, further exacerbating an unhealthy racist discourse in Canada: 

“From Standing Rock to The Assembly of ‘First Nations’…opposition to pipelines has become a rallying cry, and a hill many political leaders have staked out as their preferred location for death…

“…A few years ago, I visited the Unist’ot’en camp in British Columbia. This camp is located west of Prince George, on the proposed right-of-way of the ‘Gateway’ pipeline. I was impressed by the resolve and commitment of the people who had set up camp and remained for several years. They were creating a permanent settlement within ‘their’ unceded territory.

He conveniently omits the fact that the protest camp is at least partly funded by Vancouver Lower Mainland anarchists and environmentalists, was initially set up to oppose a natural gas pipeline that is also coming through that area, and is NOT supported by the local elected tribal chiefs..:  Continue reading ‘Pipe Fiction’

‘No Treaty Leg To Stand On’

“There has been a lot of talk of late about treaties from the protesters trying to block the ‘Dakota Access Pipeline’, with the assertion that the land the pipeline is being built on is land the Sioux people never ceded to the federal government…

“…the ‘Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868’ seems to say that the tribe must accept the pipeline…   Continue reading ‘No Treaty Leg To Stand On’

‘Saving The Planet’

“A young Inuit woman addressed the assembly at the ‘UN Conference on Climate Change’ in Marrakesh…on Canada’s behalf. 

“According to the ‘National Post’, the Canadian delegation in Marrakesh comprised 17 representatives from various ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} groups.

“Maatalii Okalik, president of the ‘Inuit Youth Council’, accompanied Minister of the Environment Catherine McKenna to the ‘22nd Conference of the Parties on Climate Change’ (COP 22) where she pleaded for the world leaders to take native communities into account.

‘Tribes Sign Treaty Opposing Pipelines’

“‘Indigenous’ ‘nations’ from across the country signed a “continent-wide ‘indigenous’ treaty” to oppose five oil pipelines awaiting approval across the country. 

{A small minority of Chiefs from across North America FLEW into Montreal and Vancouver for the ‘treaty’ signing. But none of them pledged to stop using oil or oil-based products. And they all still want money from the rest of us, while offering to contribute exactly nothing…}

“The…Native American tribes from Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, the Prairies, British Columbia and the U.S. made the announcement in joint press conferences Thursday.  Continue reading ‘Tribes Sign Treaty Opposing Pipelines’

‘Mother Earth?’

We are constantly lectured by aboriginal supremacists about how ‘white man’ needs to understand our relationship with ‘Mother Earth’, the way that aboriginals ‘inherently’ do. It will therefore come as a surprise to many that ‘Mother Earth’ as a concept in Canadian culture is European in origin and has virtually no history or connection with aboriginal culture or belief – and that’s according to aboriginal elders and ‘scholars’: 

ROGER ROULETTE (“Ojibwe translator and linguist…grew up in Manitoba, the son of a well-known medicine man”):
“Wherever this notion came from, it is widespread. I am at a loss to who came up with it, first of all, and also that they would think that it is our concept. And it isn’t. I am definitely, positively, absolutely sure.”  Continue reading ‘Mother Earth?’

Protesters, stop using oil

This is my father, Konrad J. Tittler, who did real environmental work, inventing new products and technologies back in the 1970’s to treat lumber and pulp & paper with more environmentally friendly products, and to do water treatment in industry, and for cities and towns down the west coast all the way down to Chili. They cleaned water and treated sewage with their technology.

They cleaned up oil spills, long ago, the technology is not new. Why do protesters not know this?

Now, at the age of 83, my father just sold his innovative technology to BASF, to clean up the tailings ponds on the oil sands.

To me, the radical protesters and even the “moderates” who are anti-pipeline, are emotionally triggered people who got sucked into somehow thinking THEY cared about the environment because they attacked, blamed and abused the oil industry, and industry as a whole, when MEANWHILE, it’s industry and guys like my dad and all the brilliant talent he pooled, challenged and paid to do amazing things, who DID & DO amazing things without ever going to one protest.
