Obama's Hypocrisy Toward Native Americans: Blocks Dakota Access Pipeline; Grabs Land in San Juan County

San Juan County, one of the poorest counties in Utah, is about to lose two million acres to the federal government. In an unprecedented land grab, Obama plans to take land from Native Americans to create a national monument --- all for their benefit, of course. While the president appears to honor sacred land at the Dakota Access Pipeline, San Juan Valley is a different story.

Commissioner Rebecca M. Benally --- Democrat, Native American and the first woman to be elected in San Juan County --- recently held a press conference to explain why her people vehemently oppose a Bears Ears National Monument.

"My constituents do not want a national monument in San Juan County. It's just another federal overreach with empty promises. As a Native American, we understand what broken treaties mean and broken promises. We've lived it for the last 200 years. So, what makes you think, President Obama, that you think you're doing the right thing?" Commissioner Benally said. "Your legacy, I hope we can soon forget. You're not doing it for the local people."

She continued with passion and purpose, noting how environmental groups romanticize their so-called noble efforts.

"This is a place of reverence, spirituality, where they gather medicinal plants, wood to heat their home and cook, hunt. You're taking that away. There is no such thing like a special proclamation that can be done by the president. This is a congressional authority that has to happen. You've been lied to by environmental groups. Environmental groups, I'm here to tell you, stop romanticizing and stop pretending that you are doing this for Native American people. I've seen it time and time again. It is wrong, and I'm tired of you using my people, talking for them. It is wrong that you do this," Commissioner Benally said.

SIGN: Petition to Stop Bears Ears National Monument in Utah

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), a vocal opponent of Obama's land grab in Utah, praised Commissioner Benally's impassioned plea.

"I can find no better example of the irony and hypocrisy of an administration bent on railing against neocolonialism and purporting to defend the poor and disenfranchised," Sen. Lee said.

Commissioner Benally, a member of the Navajo Tribe, offered a few words about trust between Native Americans and the federal government.

"I want to tell you about trust. There is no trust. We as Native Americans do not trust the federal government," the Commissioner said.

The people of Utah need these lands. They love these lands, and use them to survive and honor their heritage. Sign the petition to stop Bears Ear National Monument in Utah.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
