I agree with the decision based on the fact that a treaty was signed and was never revoked.

They probably should have said something about it sooner but that is a moot point

What I don't agree with is SCOTUS making this ruling without getting a plan as to how this transition would be made and what effects it may have

Questions like the ones you mentioned

If they are now considered a sovereign nation, can they even vote in our elections? Reservations are governed by a tribal council

That's why they pushed back on getting rid of DACA- there was no plan to deal with the effects

That is not such a small thing

it enhanced the Creek Nation’s ability as a sovereign nation to work with other sovereign interests to protect people and to work in common interests.

Maybe they should investigate the rape allegations that conveniently disappeared when the riots started

Barr flat out said he's not looking at Biden or Obama for crimes committed. Wray has already flat out said the precedent is not to arrest anyone close to an election so as not to interfere in said election.

Not looking at them does not mean not intending to go after them

IOW, he is not going for them until after the election when Trump is a lame duck and can loose his power

Ghislane Maxwell is going to be the bulldozer that paves the way to the top

It's a little hard to stay when you're fired and you can't pay rent anymore.

They just can't always fight in the same way you can when they're up against the mayor, the governor, the neighbors, the judges your co-workers, your boss, your company, and maybe even members of your own family.

Really?

Glad no one told these guys to be afraid of wearing a hat

What happened to the signers of the Declaration of Independence?

This is the Price They Paid

They signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the revolutionary army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the revolutionary war.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers or both, looted the properties of Ellery, Clymer, Hall, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. The owner quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged: “For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”
