Biden in State of Union exhorts Congress: 'Finish the job'
"President Biden exhorted Republicans in his State of the Union address to work with him to finish the job of rebuilding the economy in uniting the nation. I'm Ben Thomas with a look at his remarks. I have the high privilege and the stink honor to present to you the president of the United States. A speaker Kevin McCarthy introducing President Biden to a joint session of Congress. The president offered a reassuring assessment of the nation's condition. Two years ago, democracy faced his greatest threat to the Civil War and today, though bruised our democracy remains unbowed and unbroken. Anti says we're ready the next chapter of the great American story, a story of progress and resilience. For made an appeal to Republicans. Yes, we disagreed plenty. And yes, there were times when Democrats went alone. But time and again, Democrats and Republicans came together. Still, there was some heckling from the Republican side, such as when he said some Republicans want Medicare and social security to sunset. I'm not saying it's a majority. Republicans jump to their feet to object. I'm not saying there's a majority of you. I don't even think it's even a significant, but it's being proposed by individuals. I'm not politely not naming them, but it's being proposed by some of you. Look, folks. But elsewhere in his remarks, Biden pointed to bipartisan progress on issues like infrastructure. I think the people sent us a clear message. Fighting for the sake of fighting, power for the sake of power, conflict for the sake of conflict, gets us nowhere to restore the soul of this nation, to rebuild the backbone of America. America's middle class and the unite the country. We've been sent here to finish the job, Ben Thomas, Washington.

Speaker McCarthy Gave a Pre-SOTU Address
"Speaker McCarthy gave a pre State of the Union address. Let's grab a couple of clips from that. My phone number is one 805 two O one two three four. Do you have any expectations for the State of the Union tonight? I'm not sure I'm going to watch it. I think I'll listen to it and get some exercise in, so it will be worthwhile, but it might be too painful to actually watch. Here's speaker McCarthy yesterday making sure that the president does not, he's preempting a lie that president has been telling for the last week. And so McCarthy is on tape before the State of the Union cut number 15. Cuts to Medicare and social security. They are off the table. Defaulting on our debt is not an option. But neither is a future of higher taxes, higher interest rates. And an economy that doesn't work for working Americans. Continued cut number 16 speaker McCarthy. Thanks to four years of runaway spending by the Democrats. They increased annual discretionary spending by $400 billion. That's a 30% increase in just four years. They took our nation's credit card, spent like crazy and left does in deep debt. But not once did they seek or accept any responsibility. Instead, they doubled down. In 2021, Democrats passed the largest debt limit increase in American history. Then they maxed our nation's credit cards again just 13 months later. Now, President Biden wants Congress to raise the debt limit yet again. Without a single sensible change to how government spends your hard earned money. None.
Biden aims to deliver reassurance in State of Union address
"President Joe Biden delivers the State of the Union address tonight. The president is expected to offer a reassuring assessment of the nation's condition before a politically divided Congress. On the eve of the president's address, GOP House speaker Kevin McCarthy challenged Biden to come to the negotiating table with House Republicans to cut spending as part of a deal to raise the debt ceilings. President Biden wants Congress to raise the debt limit yet again. Without a single sensible change to how government spends your hard earned money. Biden has insisted that he won't negotiate on meeting the country's debt obligations. And while COVID-19 has eased at home, Biden is expected to turn his sights to the deadly opioid epidemic, mental health, gun violence, and police abuses. The parents of the Memphis man recently beaten to death by police officers are expected to be in the audience. Donna water Washington
What to Watch: New political vibes this State of the Union
"President Biden is set to deliver his State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress Tuesday night and seated behind him wielding the gavel will be the new Republican Speaker of the House. Kevin McCarthy. I'm Ben Thomas, with a look at that relationship. I'm just walked out having an hour conversation with this president that I tell you in perspective was a good conversation. That was the House speaker last week at The White House after meeting with Biden on raising the nation's borrowing limit. Ahead of the president's State of the Union address, McCarthy told reporters our debt is now a greater burden than it has been at any time since World War II. Republicans have refused to raise the debt limit unless Biden accepts cuts and federal spending, but Biden says it's not up for negotiation. Congress must pay the nation's bills when the country will face economic calamity. McCarthy's response, we must commit to finding common ground on a responsible debt limit increase. Turning up the pressure. Mister president, it's time to get to work. Ben Thomas Washington
Tony Perkins: The State of Faith, Family, and Freedom Address
"You've got a big, big event happening tonight, and I wanted to talk about that. You are delivering your state of faith, family, and freedom address. That is tonight, FRC dot org is the landing page there. Tony, what is the state of faith family and freedom? Well, it's under assault by this administration. We're going to talk about the core value issues that define America. America was a great nation because it was a good nation that moral foundation has been steadily chipped away at over the centuries over the decades, especially the last 6 decades. This administration taking a jackhammer to accelerating the pace at which they are pounding this very foundation. So we're going to talk about those issues that the president will not touch tomorrow night or we'll be talking about the reverse side. I'm sure he's going to tout his administration's championing of quote unquote reproductive freedom essentially violating the law pushing abortion pills through the mail trends our children with as radical agenda coming out from the left. And so we're going to talk about that. But we're also going to highlight Todd, the fact that Americans have had enough and they're not waiting for Washington to solve the problems anymore. And so parents across the country are taking matters into their own hands, running for school board, electing school boards, protecting their children, we see more work in the pro life arena taking place. So there's a lot to be encouraged about as people realize that our faith, our families and our freedom. Really, they really are under attack.
AMC to price movie theater tickets based on where you sit
"The nation's largest movie theater chain is charging more for where you sit. I'm Archie's are a letter with the latest. AMC theaters knew sight line pricing structure charges moviegoers based on where their seats are in the theater. Seats in the middle cost a dollar or two more while seats in the front row are a little cheaper. Those value sightline seats require a membership in AMC's subscription service. AMC has rolled out the pricing in some locations and plans to have it in all its American theaters for showings after 4 p.m. by the end of the
'Loophole' excuses WHO officials accused of misconduct
"A UN report finds a legal technicality excused to WHO officials who fumbled complaints about sexual misconduct. A confidential United Nations report about the World Health Organization's missteps handling a sexual misconduct case during an Ebola outbreak in Congo has been obtained by The Associated Press, the report submitted to WHO last month wasn't released publicly. It found WHO staffers did not violate that agency's policies due to what some officials describe as a loophole the case involved a health agency Doctor Who signed a contract to buy land for a young woman he reportedly impregnated since the woman wasn't a beneficiary of humanitarian aid from the agency she didn't qualify as a victim under WHO's policy. Last week, WHO's director said UN investigators concluded the managerial misconduct charges were unsubstantiated and three staffers are back at work, and AP investigation revealed senior management was told of sexual exploitation in eastern cargo from 2018 to 2020, but did little to stop it.

Ukraine defense minister expects help from West on warplanes
"Ukraine's defense minister is confident Western Allies will agree to the country's latest weapons request warplanes to fight off Russian forces that invaded nearly a year ago. Defense minister Alexei reznikov told a news conference in Kyiv on Sunday, Ukraine had already received everything from his wish list to Santa, except planes. He has there will be planes too. The question being, what kind exactly? Consider this mission is already completed. So far, Ukraine has once support from Baltic nations and Poland in its quest to obtain western fighter jets, but several western leaders have expressed concern that providing warplanes could provoke the Kremlin and draw their countries deeper into the conflict.

How to Respond to the Concept of Systemic Racism
"Have a question here. Charlie, I keep on being told by my teacher that we are a systemically racist country. How do you suggest or recommend I respond to that? Well, that is consistent with what the ingrate Elon Omar consistently says, where she says we need to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it. Now, Elon Omar, being a beneficiary of the very country that she now wants to dismantle again of people that I have probably the most frustration with and discussed with Elon Omar would be near the top. Her entire life, she lives a life of luxury and convenience. Thanks to the nation that she now wants to dismantle that she calls a pressed. Elon Omar is just parroting postmodern post structuralist, quite honestly, Marx is talking points that really came into focus 1912, 1916 with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, one of America's worst presidents. Here's Elon Omar cut 61 saying we need to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it. Honestly, this should be the reason she's kicked off committees. In addition to her anti Jew bigotry, play cut 61. As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering its profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality. So we can not stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it. The whole system of oppression, what does she mean by that? She means private property rights. If there was to be a single issue, where the American left and conservatives disagree the most, it would be the issue of private property. And that's not an insignificant issue. Unfortunately, that issue becomes far too abstract. Because it seems as if oh, that's just an economic. No, that's a moral difference. In the original draft of the United States, Declaration of Independence, the Declaration of Independence for the United States, I should say. It was life liberty and property when John Locke wrote about the need to own property. It was a moral argument that the government the state does not have the right to what you have earned
Newsmax's Christopher Ruddy Describes AT&T's DirectTV Censorship
"You pay attention to what's going on in the world, you know that the censorship culture, the cancel culture, has come for newsmax. That's one of the ways you know newsmax are the good guys. I have the privilege right now of talking to the man behind newsmax Christopher ruddy, Chris, welcome to this program. Eric, I'm honored to be on your show. Thank you for having me. Well, listen, I've been on newsmax so many times. I thought it's fair that you would come on here. But I want to hear you talk about what you all are going through because as far as I'm concerned, the nation is at stake. When I hear about something like this, it's horrifying to me, but tell my audience what you all at newsmax are facing right now. Well, I could say this just dealt with newsmax, but it doesn't. I think it's about the future of the country. And I think you really glad you appreciate that and feel the same way. Newsmax has been around since the 90s is a media digital media company. We started cable news channel 5 or 6 years ago. We're now the fourth highest rated cable news channel, top. We reached 20 5 million people, regularly that's Nielsen numbers. And a lot of people don't like that fact because we're giving, I think, both sides were doing fair news. We're giving information. We're talking about faith based issues that other channels don't talk about. They don't like us. And we already know that there was an effort when the Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats came to power. They wrote a letter to AT&T, which owns DirecTV, all the other cable companies saying, deep form, one America channel, newsmax, and Fox News. They said we were spreading misinformation about the election. Apparently, AT&T direct TV complied. They removed the one America channel last year. We were up for renewal this January. And they removed us. They de platformed us.

How Do Other Nations See Us? Jim Carafano Explains
"With our good friend our Friday Nash security buddy. He is the vice president of the heritage foundation. I hope you remember, go right now, heritage. Jim, you're a 5 O one three year foundation. You do not do politics, but your identity is conservative. We've talked about how other nations look at us in response to the balloon, whatever story. Got to ask you, how do other nations look at us when somebody who says they're conservative was a former chairman of the RNC, says something like this and uses the word fascism in the current context, play cut. But you know what is increasingly becoming a thing? Fascism, from Republican lawmakers appearing alongside Nazi apologists to coup defenders getting plum committee assignments to public expressions of belligerent nationalism and racism. We're getting a pretty clear picture of what fascism can look like in America. The stagnant ineffectual party isn't just about dysfunction. It isn't about it's just isn't about failure to move an agenda. It's about settling partisan score. That's what dictators do. That's the former chairman of the RNC, Michael Steele. From a foreign policy's perspective, what ramifications are there, where the former head of a party says, my party is dictatorial and fascist. Well, you know, it's funny that you ask that question because I was just in two different countries. And in the last two days, I hosted heritage. We hosted a 160 different international visitors in two days. So I've had a lot of conversations. I think that you were a bunch of fascists. Well, this is the thing is there are two minds. One is when they hear that they're saying that's just crass, partisan, ugly, politics. They see through it.
The Founding Fathers Reference Deuteronomy More Than Any Other Book
"Been pouring over what I think far too many pastors do not teach, which is genesis exodus leviticus numbers and deuteronomy, which if you look at the founding fathers, the founding fathers side of the book of deuteronomy more than any other source in writing the Declaration of Independence, the federalist papers and the constitution. And so did Jesus. He quoted deuteronomy more than any other book. The end Jesus, when Jesus was alive and it's still the same day, the most holy thing a Jew can do is to study the Torah. So our lord and savior, God in flesh, loved the first 5 books of the Bible. And yet so many pastors across the country, intentionally avoid it, and tell us that the first 5 books of the Bible are irrelevant. Andy Stanley, who's a pastor in Georgia, says that we should not, we shouldn't take seriously the first 5 books of the Bible that genesis leviticus deuteronomy are irrelevant. And not worthy of study or appreciation. And so as we try to look at this time of chaos and confusion, which is widespread in our nation, I find it so comforting personally to go back to that these are eternal fights that these are fights that predate us and they're going to be here long past us, but the order that can be restored is very clear, which is to establish the distinctions and to protect them, but it takes courage to do so.
Pope says South Sudan's future depends on treatment of women
"Pope Francis has said that the future of South Sudan depends on how it treats its women on a visit to the world's newest nation, the Pope highlighted the plight of women in the country, asking all its citizens to protect respect, appreciate and honor every South Sudanese women from grandmothers to young girls. Sister Olathe, who runs the secondary school for girls, told the AP young girls in the country often miss out on an education. About 10% of 15 year old girls are getting married. So getting girl into school, it was impossible. It has become possible, and today you'll meet some of the girls who have really achieved and broken through, it's changing, but it's still a big push for girls. South Sudan is also a country which is rampant for sexual violence and has the world's highest maternal mortality rate. I'm Karen Chammas
Pentagon Tells Us to "Look up in the Sky" to Locate Chinese Balloon
"National security it's Friday. The one star Pentagon spokesperson of the air force trying to explain why you, the American people, you don't get to know about communist Chinese spy balloons flying across America play cut. The position of the balloon classified? Phil right now, what we're not going to do is get into an hour by hour location of the balloon again. We're monitoring it closely. As I mentioned right now, it's over the center of the continental United States. That's about as specific as I'm going to get. I understand my being convenient, but as the public not have a right to know the public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is. You suck at son of a bee. Really? You can go outside and look out. Yeah, because if I go outside here by the nation's capital look in the sky, I'm going to see that it better not be coming over D.C., Brigadier. You saw castic cynical. You are the example of Millie's ideologically woke military. You have the right to go outside and look up. How is a Chinese government surveillance vessel flying over U.S. territory? This is reported last night, and we are told The Pentagon doesn't want to shoot it down because of the danger that it might result in.
The Essence of Manhood With Stephen K. Bannon
"Let's talk about what it means to you to be a man. What is the essence of manhood? You've served this nation honorably in uniform. Here we have a picture of the naval officer Steve Bannon. You come from a good Irish Catholic family from Richmond, Virginia. I believe your dad was alignment. What is your definition? What are the non negotiables of being a man? I just think it's do your duty. You know, one thing I tell people about, I talk to a lot of young people about going into the military and because I say it's the best thing you'd ever do to serve your country. I know more, I know so many wealthy individuals in their 40s, 50s or 60s have really made in life and every time I talk to them, the one thing if they didn't do it was go and serve their country in that time period of your 20s when you have the opportunity to do it. So I talk to people. And when I talk to people, I say, look, the military is not an example. It's not Rambo, right? Rambo is a complete cartoon version of the military. The military, if you want to see the military, go watch 12 o'clock high. You know, a watch they were expendable with John Wayne and Robert Montgomery about taking off at a cricket door. These are individuals who are very quiet, very steadfast, very stoic, but understand what first principles are. And are prepared to make a stand and prepare to sacrifice whether that sacrifice is all the way up to their own life or their career or anything else. And that to me is very fortunate to have a father lived a hundred. He was just a blue collar working guy, but it's just that stoicism. And everything that goes with it. And so when you point to people, I say, if you want to see the version of that, you've got the William holdens. In bridge and the river quiet, you've got Gregory Peck in 12 o'clock high. These are examples that I always point out of people that are what I think is the real essence of masculinity. You don't have to be the tough guy walking into the bar like Rambo,
Balloons Called Top ‘Delivery Platform’ for Nuclear EMP Attack
"They commissioned this report and the Washington examiner did an excellent job of breaking this down The American leadership and policy foundation air force major David stuckenberg one of the nation's leading EMP experts wrote extensively about the threat that balloons carrying bombs posed to our national security And he said using a balloon as a WMD slash WME platform could provide adversaries with a palette of altitudes and payload options with which to maximize offensive effects against the United States He said a high altitude balloon could be designed created and launched in a matter of months there is nothing to prevent several hundred pounds of weapons material from being delivered to altitude And what he said was that China's recent balloon flyover of the United States is clearly a provocative and aggressive act It was most likely a type of dry run meant to send a strategic message to the United States of America And the question is if they have these very small devices on there that could generate say a nuclear explosion which would create an electromagnetic pulse that could cut the cord in the United States of America for a year or longer EMP experts have warned that China and other nations North Korea Iran have programs to hit the United States grid with electromagnetic pulse weapons that would cut the cord for a year or longer And he said imagine the consequences of a balloon EMP attack that damages and destroys electronic systems at the speed of light within an EMP field with a radius of hundreds of kilometers The eastern grid of the United States generates 75% of U.S. electricity and supports most of the population Virtually any nuke detonated anywhere over the eastern grid will collapse the entire eastern grid not just the area where the EMP exploded

"Brett, do you have easy access to? Because there are people who do like who have files at the AFM and do, like you said, really important work and they know all the ins and outs of various issues. But do you have easy access 'cause I don't remember ever being able to just interview somebody for not easily anyways. It was always a negotiation. It was you always ended up sort of with the official sort of spokespeople. But it's like, that's like government, right? They're not the ones who actually are the ones who are like elbows deep in the issue. So do you find are you able to get access to people who are really working on these issues and have the knowledge? Well, you've touched on an issue that I sometimes complain about both privately and publicly. Which is that the AF N, as I said earlier, it often acts like a government, but it isn't a government, which means the transparency and accountability, mechanisms that are attached to government don't exist with respect to the AFM. When I have the federal government not answering questions, I can go ahead and file access to information requests. I can consult the public registries that they have in order to try and get answers. I can't do that when I need to get answers from the AFM. If they're not answering questions or if I'm trying to get information, that is not immediately available. I sometimes run into a roadblock and there's no real way to get behind that. And so not really to answer your question. The officials within the AFM are usually not made publicly available. It's usually very centralized. They're communications are very centralized. But it doesn't need to be that way. As I said, there can be a reforms which can make the AFM more transparent. It can be made more accountable. It can be made more like a government if that's the way First Nations people want to go with it. But right now it's very difficult to kind of get access to those experts and get access to some of that work that happens behind the scenes. That's kind of an unfortunate parallel to indigenous services Canada. I'm looking at an article from October 2021 where the opening line is indigenous services Canada has been selected as a 2021 recipient of the code of silence award for outstanding achievement in government secrecy and the federal category. Well, I didn't say these accountability mechanisms work very well. I did say they exist and I can use it. That's right. That's right. I did see that when I did my Facebook search earlier that rust I bow has joined the national chiefs office as a special adviser. So that's something because he's usually like the outstanding critic of the AFM, so I wonder now that could make the next general or special assembly. I guess it's the December specialist. That could make that one interesting now. Just quickly, I think adding diabo to the national chief's office really adds an activist complexion to the national chief's office, which it hasn't had since Matthew couldn't come occupied the national chief's chair in the early 2000s. National chief Roseanne Archibald entered politics on the national stage in 1989 as a student activist who had launched into a hunger strike protesting planned program funding caps on post secondary indigenous education spending and right there with her at that time on that issue was Russell Diablo. And so they both had their start at the same time and it brings a different complexion to the national chiefs office. For sure. I didn't know that. That's insane. Yeah, well, maybe the two of them that could be an interesting maybe we will see some change. Brett, you alluded again to the situation around this agreement. This compensation agreement negotiated between the government of Canada with the assembly of First Nations. I don't think it's controversial to say not all indigenous people are down with that agreement some feel like it should have been held out for more. They point to the Canadian human rights tribunal pretty much saying the same thing. They refuse to endorse the deal. Do you think that that is in some way epitomizing the fork in the road for the AFM or a fork that never seems to go away? Because it could appear that if and is a little too

"It's a bit more mild. It does involve negotiating and sitting around tables with the federal government, making sure you have access. And so after that, we had Sean atleo and Perry bell guard as the national chief, who never really wavered from that strategy. You weren't likely to see them on the ground leading protests visiting direct action camps, blockades, and occupations. You were more likely to see them in Ottawa, engaging in advocacy here. So it's a long-standing debate within the AFM about which Dracula you take. But here's the thing we've heard a lot of talk about nation to nation relationships. That phrase constantly trotted out, which would imply a kind of equality, a bilateral true bilateral relationship, but when one side holds all the cards, holds all the credit cards. I don't know, it doesn't seem to me unreasonable to question whether political independence can be severed from economic independence. And AFM just seems to be, you know, essentially at the mercy of the government of the day and it decides, well, they're calling this tune, we better dance. I mean, it's pretty harsh. I know, but I think that it's what's key to remember, and it's true. I do agree that like, I mean, nation to nation, I always, you know, that's a term that we hear and it's like decolonize reconcile nation to nation and if it doesn't have any meaning, if you're not going to, I mean, hearsay here in mid Maggie, if you're not going to respect the rights being asserted by the nation, then why are you saying the words nation to nation, right? So when we talk about government, well, I remember when I was working on April I didn't even remember what story, but I was looking up old Indian affairs yearend reports. There was one that talked about self government, 1898, is what is reported. And it talks about the policy of self government as a department policy, formulated for the purpose of taking hold of Indians in their untutored state, and gradually educating them to the fitness for status of full citizenship, right? So very assimilationist approach. Basically, that was, it goes on to say, was creating this Indian act chief and council elective system. To replace the hereditary system. Like that's what this was. And so it talks about the saint Regis band, which instead of proceeding to take advantage of the provisions of this advancement act, had evinced an obstinate determination to revert to the old system of hereditary chiefs, right? So it really is like to replace and you can see now when we talk about funding, like we have hereditary systems, right? And they're not funded. So who gets the decision making power in communities? Like we have the sante Maui, the Miguel grand council, but they don't get any funding, right? It's the Indiana chief and councils that get funding from the federal government. So that funding relationship, like you end up not being recognized. They're never at the table, or they are in a symbolic way, right? So I don't know. The goal of the federal government is never changed, right? It's still the same as it was here in 1898 when a talks about enfranchisement and basically just this cookie cutter system of chief and councils as a way to move towards enfranchisement. So Brett, has I assumed there was possibly some pushback within the AF enemy and certainly they were like, no, no, no, we act on behalf of chiefs. But I'm wondering if the whole funding question and the independence that comes with that has ever been discussed with you may be off the record. I mean, I've heard people say a variation of, look, we live in a colonial state. This funding is just our own money coming back to us anyway. It's a messy situation. So we're going to have a messy relationship in this regard. So don't be so, I don't know, purist or what have you about this? And recognize the goofy reality, if you will, of the situation. Right. Has anyone ever argued that, more or less? So the short answer is no. And I'll give you the long answer. I brought these documents to the AF N and I put forward some of these peculiar criticisms that is was making about the way money was being used. And I pointed out that they were making these comments internally and not upfront to the AF N. And I offered them a chance to respond. And this was kind of a golden opportunity to just condemn these types of things. You could say anything you want. You know, you could condemn it as the old Indian affairs paternalism. Once again, rearing its head. Talking behind our backs, yeah. That didn't happen, right? Instead, they just said, well, we don't do that. We haven't had any deficits. We don't carry out any activities on the department's behalf. Instead of making some sort of sovereignty based argument where they could say, look, this is a colonial system. These are their rules. We're not bound by them because it is our money. All the resource money and taxpayer money ultimately comes from stolen indigenous lands. So it is ours in the end or as you pointed out, something to that effect. But that's not what happened. Instead, it was kind of just a very short, very brief and non confrontational response. So it didn't, it didn't happen, even though this was a golden opportunity to take a stand and to hit back a little bit. And so just again on that note you raise about this line that was deleted in one of these documents that I tweeted and it would have said that they should consider whether the activities included in the agreement could be carried out by other organizations including regional bodies. Yeah, other organizations and how these activities support the department's long-term objectives. What are the long-term objectives of the department? I was just going to ask that. When I brought this to them, they said, well, our long-term objectives are to devolve service delivery and program delivery to First Nations and then indigenous services would just cease to exist as local groups take over this. So that indigenous services won't have to do it anymore. And the department will kind of just fold in upon itself and cease to exist as First Nations deliver those services for their own people. All those jobs gone, I don't know. Trina, you must have found language to that effect back in 1898. I mean, of course, the big kahuna, what's his name? He was also a poet. He was famously quoted as saying I want to get rid of all Indians and the Indian department. But that is funny because that does just fit in like 1898. They were much more clear about their long-term objectives. It's all coached in PR now and other terms. And that was their response. So they were kind of like there's nothing nefarious about it. There's no, there's no ulterior motive where we're trying to assimilate people or this and that. They were saying it's just the innocuous objective we have. That's all about giving service delivery back to control of the communities. That was there, you know, calculated statement that they issued. If you brought this to the department's critics, I think they would say that it's long term objectives are very different.

"Summertime drama involving Roseanne Archibald centered around her, maybe just exhausted people's attention span for that organization. I don't know. Yeah, maybe. I mean, that was super distracting. I don't even know what else happened at that. I mean, I wasn't at that AFM assembly. Would have loved to have been there. But I wasn't out that one, but I find when something like that happens, like sometimes there are really important resolutions that get put forward. And as a journalist, you go and you want to see what different chiefs are putting forward because that's kind of like what's on their radar. What's happening? What are the conversations that are happening? But sometimes when you have these big sort of stories overtake everything, I don't even know what else was really talked about at that assembly aside from Archibald. Well, Brett, as Trina alluded there and the government of Canada arguably are standing shoulder to shoulder against the Canadian human rights tribunal ruling around this massive child welfare compensation deal. They've seemed to be quite upset with people like Cindy Blackstock, who advocated against going ahead with the conversation deal negotiated between the AFM and the government of Canada. We can make it to a whole show about this, frankly, but I wonder if that just kind of in a way cements the picture that's kind of seemingly painted here about this tight relationship, even though there's still one entity in the driver's seat. As they said when I reached out for comment, they want to portray the AFM as an independent organization. And the AFM insisted that it doesn't carry out activities on behalf of the federal government, it carries out activities on behalf of the chiefs in a assembly. But ultimately, when you kind of boil it down a little bit, can an organization really be independent when it receives $40 million from the federal government year over year. Does that really allow for independence? Or does that money come with strings attached? And when you look at these documents, what you see is that the money very much does come with strings attached. And in fact, one thing that was reported based on these documents or that I reported was that indigenous services actually increased its scrutiny of the AFM's cash flow after Roseanne Archibald was elected national chief. So beginning in about November 2020, they started doing an internal review of the AFM's finances. They cited a number of concerns that I had never heard for the first time and they were somewhat bizarre. So according to these documents, department officials had quote unquote long raised concerns about the AFM reallocating program money to make up for deficits in core funding, which I had never heard in the AFM denies. The documents also say that sectors had quote unquote expressed concerns with the value added of some of the assembly of First Nations activity and proposals and this document goes on to say that the department is concerned about quote unquote a lack of progress on key activities and recurring carryover requests, so it raised all of these issues, right? And so you see the government tracking all these things, raising these concerns internally, but then when you look at their outgoing correspondence, it all just disappears. And you see really tactful language being deployed. That ducks, all of these issues, and you start to ask yourself, well, why is that happening? And I think the long-standing analysis is that the liberals need the AFM as a vehicle for consultation. They need the AFM if they're reconciliation agenda is going to get any traction. And the AFM needs the liberals to finance its operations. So to what extent can that really be independent? I think it's up for debate. I always thought that working for AP tn, just having covered numerous AFM general assemblies or special assemblies. And there was always especially when there was protest around an issue. You sort of have the AFM in this position where you have to advocate. So you have to be at the table, but yet also supporting the people, but if you're going to be at the table, you can't be out on the front lines with the grassroots because there is always, that's the tension right between the grassroots and then between the executive or the sort of higher ups, this balance, right? But then when you just said about the bureaucracy, I mean, the AFM itself, I think, seems to have its own bureaucracy. I think any time an organization is around long enough, all of a sudden there's bureaucracy and you can some of the articles talk about the AFM lawyers and they have their legal team and I don't know all of a sudden there's all these layers. It's not like I can imagine that the AFM today looks quite different than say the national Indian brotherhood when it first started, right? In the 70s, I don't know. It was more of an outsider. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. But once you're at the table, does that compromise how are you compromised, or is it? It's an interesting balance. I think that the AFM has to struggle with, but this is really enlightening in terms of at least how Indian affairs sees that balance. Well, I just want to jump in there because I think that's a really important point. And that issue that dichotomy is one that they've struggled with on and off really since the FN was created 40 years ago. Are you going to get more results negotiating in a back room? Or are you going to get better results, engaging in activism on the ground? That's something that they've kind of flip flopped on. And really over the last 20 years, the AFM's approach, at least at the national chief's office, has been results based. In 2002 1003, Matthew couldn't come was the national chief. And he really took a hard line stance against the federalist government. He opposed everything they were doing. And the government responded with funding cuts. And so the chiefs reacted to that by electing Phil fontaine and that kind of heralded in this new approach that we currently have. It's a bit more mild. It does involve negotiating and sitting around tables with the federal government, making sure you have access. And so after that,

Her home is less than 18 minutes down the highway from the community of cheminis, where the mystery of her birth and her identity began almost 70 years ago. My mother wanted to do her last two years of high school in one and the only way she was able to do this was to go to a Catholic school, so she lined up a summer job down at the cannery in near Victoria in a squamate actually. And it was there that she met my father, he had worked in the can re since he was a kid, and they met when I guess they were 16 and 17. They carried on a relationship over the few months and when my mother returned home to shebna, it was revealed that she was going to have a baby. And so my father who had been always quite enterprising had quite a bit of money put aside from his work and so they decided to elope. And so they set the date and on the evening that they were to elop my mother was caught coming down the stairwell with a suitcase. And that was the end of that story. It was revealed that she was pregnant and that and that was not going to happen with my father being native and my mother's father said there won't be any Indians in this family.

"Media indigena, our chance to shoot the via social audio joining me. This April 21st via the calling app are Trina roach, the Rogers chair and journalism at the university of kings college. And a friend of the show, a friend of mine, and friend of us all, really. The editor and grand chief of the walking eagle news, Tim fontaine, welcome folks. Hello, Tim. And Rick. Mainly Tim, I haven't talked to you in a while. I've already I know. It's a yet another AP ten news reunion. I have say I'm loving this. We're going to go through the whole crew eventually. Okay, so as we know, many indigenous follows a three, four, 5, format, three people, four things, roughly 5 minutes each and emphasis on roughly. No one knows what the others want to talk about, including that fourth item, submitted by one of our monthly supporters on Patreon. So trena sits Tim is new to this mini business. I thought one of us should go first. Who will it be? Nominate you. Okay, perfect. All right. Democracy and action. Okay, my nugget for this week. Have you guys seen that brutal editorial cartoon out of Ontario about what some regard as the Pope's apology regarding residential schools? I have yes. I almost made that my topic. So as you recall, for those who haven't seen it, you see three people on the left is the Pope sitting in a chair, a top sum platform, and then there's a red carpet. I mean, that's where the first inaccuracy was there. He should be on a gold throne or something. But anyway, and to the right of him, are a couple of presumably indigenous people, First Nations people. One looks kind of like a lawyer. The other one, I guess it's supposed to look like a chief. He's got a full headdress on for some reason. And so the Pope is looking all sad. He's saying, I am sorry. And the lawyer is holding a piece of paper that says comp. I'm assuming compensation. She's saying how sorry. Here's the cleverest part of it. The essence sorry of what the lawyer is saying is a dollar sign. Get it. And the chief he just looks down. He's silent, kind of like a cigar store Indian. What would your reaction when you guys saw that, Tim? Well, I mean, I had joked about that in a roundabout way with walking eagle news, right? But I mean, it's one of those things where if you're a white guy and because I know what they're getting at, which is basically all these Indians all they want is money, right? So it was like screw you, man. That's lazy, and that's whatever, right? Like I just thought, if it had been an indigenous person that did it in a certain way, like my mind was part of an overall sort of look at that apology, right? I am angry at the Vatican for having billions of dollars in assets and acting like saying sorry is like they really have to twist their arm to do that. That was a whole bunch of stuff that came out about that. I mean, I get the humor of it, I guess, right? But I never saw the cartoon, obviously, only like when it hit the news. And started making headlines because I don't get that newspaper. It's simco dot com. And simcoe county. But it kind of like it just touches on that like, you know, I mean, I'm doing stories or I've been doing stories like on 60 scoop, like with Debbie Paul, and we've been looking at there's been, so I've been following news on that. And I mean, those are people who went through trauma, who were 60 scoop, who lost connection to culture, language, community, all of that stuff suffered trauma. And I think they get over 20,000, not even 30,000 is the max. That's not. So when I don't know, I don't like the money jokes, like where it's just like, oh, you just, people are just in it for money somehow. I just think it sort of degrades the real meaning of what real compensation has to, or what real change has to take place. And really, the money is never lawyers make a lot of money usually offices. But individual people who've been traumatized usually don't. So it's not like even if they get some money, it's not really about the money. The message I think the artist meant to send is, oh man, here's more Indians lining up for more money. And oh, he's the poor Pope. He's sitting. He said he's sorry. Although he never said he was sorry on behalf of the Catholic Church, he was sorry about the conduct of specific members, which I'm sort of like, God, God. I know. Sorry, not sorry. Yeah. I would prefer to see the, say, sorry about the doctrine of discovery. Let's rescind that. Like, that would be, that would be meaningful. Yeah, we need action. Yeah, yeah. And destroy the foundation of all Canada's claims to sovereignty over indigenous lands. Exactly. Okay, here's the thing. This cartoon about the apology caught a lot of flak. And now there's two more apologies. One from the simcoe county newspaper, the managing editor. He wrote a column saying, dear simcoe county readers, the cartoon we published was offensive, we apologize. It was intended as a satirical look at how the Pope's long awaited apology to indigenous people falls short without the Roman Catholic Church also delivering on his promise of providing compensation to residential school survivors, but this wasn't the way to depict that opinion and we shouldn't have published it. So you see guys, the intent was actually what you wanted. I mean, again, that as I said, it was just lazy. They could have shown the Pope in a particular way. You know what I mean? Like the ridiculousness of the fact that he's covered in jewels and he's talking about things. I mean, it's just like, it would have been funnier if he tripped over gold on the way to say something. Something like that as opposed to, you know, the way they did it, which is like, yeah, they're coming and scratching at this poor man. But Tim, don't we know that the funniest jokes are the ones you have to explain after the fact. Well, I'm guilty of that all the time because it requires a history.

I've always said this is that we need to get first nations people into visit all positions of power and authority and we have to have thick skin to bring about change in policy and legistlation To bring about change in institutions that are colonial. You know to make sure that they're more accepting and inviting of an accepting of all the contributions that first nations people have made to candidate including sharing all the land and resources. People need to understand that. So i'm going to keep encouraging people. Inuit people made people first nations people to get into positions of power and authority on the supreme court of canada.

Cabinet table infiltrate the liberals and the conservatives in the end ep and the greens while we still work on our own first nations party in our own self determination self-governance as well More ceo's more board of directors we need to have that thick skin to persevere to to to bring about that change in and we need to get our people into positions of power and authority. That's what i think. And that's that's what i'm gonna keep advocating for. Well it's it's a great point but it also sets up a another voice that like it here it's riley. She's an indigenous writer and she's writing. A book called the reconciliation generation which she defines as the first generation that has not been through residential or indian day schools. Listen to what she told us. Indigenous youth have largely said that reconciliation to them is dead. It's not something they're interested in. And i don't think canada yet has fully embraced how profound that is and how immense political impacts that will have what they're calling for instead in my opinion is perhaps you've heard of the slogan you know land back with started as a very much an internet beam. But it's actually a really really robust policy. Stance that talks about reparations that talks about return of jurisdiction and a ton of e though. It's a very materially focused as opposed to you know symbolic thing that i think. Reconciliation has largely become in this country. Let's must talk about land back for a second because when we talk about reconciliation that seems to be an understanding but it's also rebuilding a relationship and every relationship needs to be put to a test. Will this idea of giving land back to to the first nations. Will that be a significant test for canadians. Well first off. I wouldn't call giving land back. I'll call it land restoration and i wouldn't call it a land claim policy whether it be comprehensive land claim or a specific land claim this is land restoration and first nations from a first nations perspective from from my perspective is. We're sharing the land and resource wealth with everybody ended and so for canada have some policies for example the competence of claims policy and specific claims policy. The additions to reserve policy in the inherent right to self-government policy are all policies that are based on termination of rights thailand jurisdiction not recognition of rights title and jurisdiction..

"first nations" Discussed on Spill it, Sister! Reality TV recaps with Ally
"And allie. Welcome back everyone till one nation under sister wives and it should have been two nations or to families. Because that's all we got this episode and we're pretty sure this was the season finale. Yeah sure mark. What i know i was thinking what happened. I looked at by xfinity stream and it does. There's no episode records next week and then at the end of this episode. They're like. Oh a sneak peek at our new show which is like what's it called lindsay that it's because i watched discovery plus okay. What was the sneak peak. It's something extreme family. And i talked about it on news on patriotic but basically it's where kind of a polygamous family i guess you could call it lifts together so it's an ex wife an ex husband and then the new husband also live together but are they in a relationship knows like oh we got a divorce but we're still friends so i just didn't want to move out bill. You can totally still live here with us like white. That's not even that interesting. I mean i guess it could be. I mean you have the same almost the same dynamic going on like real housewives of ram new york new jersey Where i forget. I'm like i just watching this season. But she's like still best friends with her ex husband in like lives with him half the time and lives with her new boyfriend half to tie in. It's like it's not theresa theresa. S ex husband lives abroad because he was forced to leave. The country has ryan. You're all his tax evasion. Yes that's right. yeah so. I mean to me. I'm just like i want a tell all for this sister wives. I wanna see. I don't know and it's very weird that they didn't even say like this was the final episode or it was just it was just ended so abruptly. I feel like the rug was pulled out from under me heartburn and we really didn't know last episode that it was the last time seeing colton and all the other couples they finally came on their instrumentals. Like no this was just last episode of the season. But then i didn't see tasha in city and say anything like that so i wonder if they kind of cut this season short because of the snowed in drama. There we have to like hurry up and wrap this up so we don't have to cancel. I guess that's what it feels like but then also when you look back. At previous seasons this season did have more episodes than other seasons. So it's like it really was longer but it still feels like it was cut off. I don't know something weird happen. One remember they had to delay the premiere of it. You for whatever reason so there's just been all kinds of issues with the season of seeking sister wives but you know that's what made it interesting. So i think they had a delay because of the aldridge's and everything that happened. Yeah and now they're like. Oh donnas no longer with the family. This season was cursed from the beginning. I think it really. I just hope they're not thinking that the whole show is cursed because they love the show. And i don't want the show to go anywhere i don't think it will. Tlc has no integrity. We'll get another season with new couples. It'll be fine. Just start fresh..
