Let's talk about "national emergencies."
There are THOUSANDS of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in this country. Sisters, daughters, mothers, human beings that disappear without a trace. Where is the declaration over that crisis? #MMIW #MMIWG #MMIR
In a country determined to place nationalism at the forefront of domestic and foreign policy, we have a shocking number of homeless veterans. In states like Arizona, the number of #veteran suicides is 90.4 per 100,000. kdminer.com/news/2019/feb/…

I Hope People Take The Time to Read this and See the Deep Systemic Nature that Makes Justice Unattainable:

Police say dozens of Indigenous women died with 'no foul play,' but families doubt it -

Police Say "No Foul Play"

"Not Suspicious"

In the 32 Cases Below, These Facts Beg to Be Investigated, Yet... They Haven't Been...

This is Not Isolated. This is Common.

THIS IS ALSO WHY AN INQUIRY INVOLVING THE VERY PEOPLE THAT SEE "NO FOUL PLAY" IS AN ISSUE.
Clive Weighill, president of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, acknowledges that some investigations have not been done properly.

This looks like an eye-opener. @Thomas1774Paine is an incredible Patriot and #JammieJourno Check out his book, "How We Dismantled the FBI in our Pajamas." A LOT of us out here. ;) :) #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly

SWAT-clad FBI agents stormed into Mike "Thomas Paine" Moore's home and terrorized his wife and young children at gunpoint after rousting them out of bed. Not once, but TWICE, pointing automatic weapons at the family. #JammieJourno #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly
In response Paine assembled his journalism crew of former feds, launched @true_pundit and literally dismantled the FBI in less than two years with pens and laptops while working from home, often in pajamas. #JammieJourno #MAGA #SemperFi #QanonArmy #FlyEaglesFly @cenbrohen

#MMIWG started when Columbus landed. He stole little prepubescent Native girls & sold them or gave them away as sex slaves. Indigenous women’s and girls bodies have been subjected to conquest just like Mother Earth, the Original Indigenous woman. It never ended.
There are stories of sexual violence & #MMIW throughout Native history. Like the soldiers raping Dakota women within earshot of their husbands & male relatives at prison camps they were sent to after the Dakota War.
One of my grandmothers was murdered by a jealous man who was obsessed with her & claimed to be in love with her. My grandfather never got over it. Her name was Daisy. Before he passed, he mistook me for her. #MMIW
