The federal government has released indictments of nearly a dozen residents of Oklahoma, residents of land that used to all be Indian country, on charges ranging up to and including murder – to replace state cases that were dismissed.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
The Department of Justice said on Friday that the federal counts were needed because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in McGirt v. Oklahoma.
That case, in which a member of the Seminole tribe was convicted and sentenced for abusing a four-year-old girl, was dismissed because the Supreme Court decided 5-4 that for the purposes of the Major Crimes Act, Congress failed to disestablish the region’s Indian reservations, so that lands remained Indian country, where state laws did not apply.
There was concern in the court that the federal courts would need to take up the load of about 8,000 felonies that happen annually on those lands, because it is the federal judicial system that would have jurisdiction there, not state system.
There also was concern over how it would impact businesses operating under tribal rules.
Now the federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Oklahoma has named a long list of defendants in a series of separate indictments.
The indictments named:
Gregory Gamblin on a charge of murder.
Gunnar Mathew Hemingway on a charge of murder, as well as using, carrying, and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
Cody Nash James on a charge of murder.
Brian Mack on a charge of murder.
Robert Mitchell on a charge of murder.
Clifton Parish on charges of murder and kidnapping.
Jeffrey Pierce on a charge of murder.
Tyas Short on a charge of second degree murder in Indian Country and another of using, carrying, and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
Devin Sizemore on charges of murder, second-degree murder, manslaughter and child abuse.
John Duncan Stubbs on charges of murder and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.
And Johnson Wisdom on a charge of murder in Indian Country.
The charges came from a three-day grand jury session assembled by the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Gang Section along with the U.S. Attorney’s office.
The U.S. Supreme Court decision had found the historical boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation were never disestablished by Congress and therefore that the State of Oklahoma did not have jurisdiction to prosecute Jimcy McGirt for first degree rape and other state crimes.
Then the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that the Cherokee reservation and the Chickasaw reservation were likewise never disestablished. Similar rulings affecting the Seminole and Choctaw reservations were issued by the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are pacing to be short by about $3700 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
