Indianz.Com > Appeals court won't revisit historic decision in Muscogee Nation boundary case
A closely-watched reservation boundary case could be headed to the U.S. Supreme Court, setting up a clash between tribes, states and the Trump administration.

On August 8, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation were never disestablished by Congress. The unanimous decision prevents the state of Oklahoma from executing a tribal citizen for a crime that occurred within the tribe's original reservation.

But the state wasn't ready to accept the outcome so it asked the 10th Circuit to rehear the case or put it before a larger panel of judges. A slew of industry interests swooped in with briefs in support of the request.

That's when the Trump administration chimed in. Rather than assert its trust responsibility and side with tribal interests, the Department of Justice said the Muscogee Nation's reservation was in fact diminished by Congress.

In doing so, government attorneys defended the negative federal policies that led to the destabilization of the tribe's government. The brief essentially turned back the clock to the early 1900s, when the United States opened up the reservation for allotment.

A Conversation with the New York Times Reporter Maggie Haberman, Trump’s Favorite Foe
"Trump’s Oval Office is like Grand Central Station. People try briefing him and someone comes in and interrupts him. People just sort of walk in without being previously announced in any meaningful way. He spends his day interacting, is how I would describe it. He gets the daily brief in the mornings. He has had that condensed down to a more visual-cued form than it was previously."
"It sounds like you’re being a little bit polite. What previous Presidents did, in one way or another, was read a tremendous amount the night before and then get a brief from the director of National Intelligence. And he has no patience for that, from what I understand. He has no patience for reading briefing books, and he has to see a lot of pictures, a lot of video, a lot of charts."
"He likes a lot of charts. He likes looking at things."
"Does he read?"
"He says he reads."

Let the People Pick the President
"The existing winner-take-all system, which awards all of a state’s electoral votes to the popular-vote winner in that state, no matter how close the race, is deeply anti-democratic. It treats tens of millions of Americans — from Republicans in Boston to Democrats in Biloxi — as if their voices don’t matter."

Cyclist Lost Her Job After Raising Middle Finger at Trump’s Motorcade
She kept her arm up until the rest of the fleet passed and then repeated the gesture a second time when the cars came to a stop and she caught up. She said she locked eyes with a man inside who she thought was a Secret Service agent, and then held the gaze of another man, but then the cars moved past her and drove away.

“I did not see him, but he was the target,” she said of Mr. Trump.

Donald Trump boasts things were 'not pleasant' for countries that messed with the US. In Japan.
Donald Trump has risked causing major offence during a visit to a key US ally, with bellicose remarks to troops that talked up America’s military prowess. The President was speaking at Yokota air base in Japan in the early stages of his tour of the Asia-Pacific region and at a time of heightened tension with North Korea due to the country’s nuclear ambitions.

The cascade of missteps that turned one White House error into a messy week
"By Monday of this week, when President Trump decided to hold an impromptu news conference in the White House Rose Garden, the administration should have been ready for questions on the subject of the soldiers’ deaths. When a reporter raised it, Trump’s response didn’t suggest a great deal of preparation. Instead, he tried to one-up past presidents by claiming that he was going above-and-beyond in calling the families of the soldiers who had been killed. Trump’s incorrect (and rapidly debunked) assertion that he was doing something that past presidents hadn’t was like dropping a snowball at the top of a mountain. As the week went on — and as Trump and his team kept making more and more mistakes and misstatements — the snowball grew and grew, consuming five days of media attention."
