An ObamaCare Agenda For President-Elect Trump

ObamaCareWATCH

Galen Institute  "Although it came late as a campaign issue, ObamaCare was on the ballot again on Tuesday.  And it lost big.


"According to exit polls, 45% said they thought the law had gone too far.  Only 18% said it was about right. That follows years of public opinion polls consistently showing approval of the law under water.
"Voters have opposed the law since before it passed.  Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other determined liberals ignored the hundreds of thousands of people who marched on the Washington Mall on September 12, 2009, to protest their agenda. After that, deep-blue Massachusetts elected Republican Scott Brown to the Senate in early 2010 in an effort to build a firewall against final passage of the law.

"That failed when the White House devised a tortured and narrow path to final passage in March, but Democrats paid a high price when 63 House Democrats who voted for the law lost their seats in the 2010 mid-term elections.
"In 2012, Mitt Romney was an imperfect opponent of the health overhaul law, having shepherded passage of a version of it when he was governor of Massachusetts.  In 2015, after Republicans won control of the Senate, both houses of Congress did pass a repeal bill, only to see it vetoed by President Obama.
"In 2016, voters had another, maybe last, chance, but for much of the campaign, ObamaCare took a back seat to immigration, trade, veterans, jobs, and an endless well of scandals.  But then former President Clinton criticized the law (“…the craziest thing!”), and Hillary Clinton and even President Obama acknowledged changes were needed to ObamaCare." . . .    By Grace-Marie Turner and Doug Badger

"Adding to the fun, we have to change policies because Mrs. Jarlsberg has just started Medicare. Interestingly, taking one person off a two-person policy costs you 75% of your subsidy. Because, according to Healthcare.gov, "screw you."

And not in a good way." . . .

Donald Trump’s New World Order; What a Kissinger-inspired strategy might look like.

LESSONS FROM HISTORY
"Donald Trump therefore enters the Oval Office with an underestimated advantage. Obama’s foreign policy has been a failure, most obviously in the Middle East, where the smoldering ruin that is Syria—not to mention Iraq and Libya—attests to the fundamental naivety of his approach, dating all the way back to the 2009 Cairo speech.

Niall Ferguson   "Ten days after the election of Donald J. Trump to be the 45thPresident of the United States, there is a more or less complete lack of certainty as to which direction his foreign policy will take, but a great deal of speculation—much of it alarmist—based on things Mr. Trump has said in speeches and interviews. Yet few if any Presidents base their foreign policy strictly on campaign rhetoric. Few if any break entirely with the policies of their predecessors. And, indeed, few if any can be said, in practice, to have anything so coherent as a foreign policy doctrine, much less a grand strategy. Experience also suggests that the foreign policy of the Trump Administration will depend a good deal on who gets the key jobs—Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense, as well as National Security Advisor—and on who wins the interdepartmental struggle that will inevitably ensue: the battle for bureaucratic priority, the fight for regular access to the President, the war of leaks to the media." . . .

On Castro, Obama Shrugs

If Obama attends...

Obama's Latest Shrug of the Shoulders  "We finally have an Obama doctrine. It is the 223 words of the White House statement on the death of Fidel Castro. It is blank of moral judgment, empty of indignation, blind to injustice, dismissive of history and indifferent to injury. A dictator has died and Barack Obama sent him off with lazy weasel words: "History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him." History will also record Obama's failure to condemn.

"Fidel Castro was a killer. He came to power in a revolution and so violence was probably inescapable. But he followed it with mass executions -- the guilty, the innocent, it hardly mattered. He imposed a totalitarian system on Cuba even harsher and more homicidal than the one that preceded it. He persecuted homosexuals, dissidents, critical writers and journalists. He would not tolerate a free press and his own political party was the only one permitted. In the end, he ruined his country's economy while at the same time exporting terrorism. Venezuela today is a quasi-police state run with the invaluable assistance of Cubans." . . .

Barack Obama Stoops To New Low In Honor Of Fidel Castro  . . . "That the President of the United States could stoop to such praise over a brutal, anti-American, Communist dictator is shocking to many. Obama seems to have a lot to say out of “respect” to Fidel Castro, but he offers total silence to his regime’s many victims."

Fixer Upper Stars Under Fire for Attending Evangelical Church. Updated

Todd Starnes


"One of my guilty pleasures in life is to watch Fixer Upper marathons on HGTV.

"Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines have not only made Waco, Texas a tourist destination, but they’ve also educated us about the many uses of shiplap.

"If you aren’t a fan of the show, you might want to Google that.

"I also appreciate that Chip and Joanna are devout Christians. Viewers can see how their faith flavors not only their television program – but also their family life.

"But not everyone appreciates those Christian beliefs – especially the militant LGBT crowd.

"And now, they are on the warpath.

"The Mainstream Media and militant LGBT activists are unleashing their fury over reports the Gaines family attends Antioch Community Church, a non-denominational megachurch." . . .

My Faculty Values and Your White Privilege

legalinsurrection

Mike Adams  "Dear Professors Meinhold, Members of the UNCW Faculty Senate Steering Committee:

"I am in receipt of your brief 69­word statement, which was sent on November 23 rd , 2016 to the entire faculty, staff, and student population at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington. The statement, which was made in response to a recent free speech controversy, is problematic for a number of reasons.

"Let me begin by saying that I respect many of the members of the Faculty Senate Steering Committee. That is why I am so disappointed with your brief statement, which is predicated on a misapprehension of facts, wrought with political bias, and lacking in logic cohesion. I begin my critique by recapitulating your brief statement:

"The Faculty of the University of North Carolina Wilmington are committed to creating a positive learning environment for students to pursue academic excellence.
"Public remarks by professors about a student’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, age, disability, political afiliation, or sexual orientation are inconsistent with our values. Stephen Meinhold Professor of Political Science 

"The problems that flow from your statement are numerous. I will stick with five:"

And those five are:. . . 

Khalid Sheikh Muhammed: If Not For “Ferocity” Of George W. Bush’s Response To 9/11, Al Qaeda Would Have Been Able To Commit More Attacks…

So many of us were thankful that Al Gore was not president then. TD

Weasel Zippers  "Khalid Sheikh Muhammed was the principal architect of 9/11 for Al Qaeda. He basically is saying they did 9/11 believing that nothing would happen to them but a ‘law enforcement’ response, because that’s all Bill Clinton had done to attacks in the past. So Bush did stop further attacks and Bill Clinton’s ‘law enforcement’ approach encouraged them."

In defense of the Electoral College

"If anything, it was the Electoral College that made it possible to end slavery, since Abraham Lincoln earned only 39 percent of the popular vote in the election of 1860, but won a crushing victory in the Electoral College. This, in large measure, was why Southern slaveholders stampeded to secession in 1860-61. They could do the numbers as well as anyone, and realized that the electoral college would only produce more anti-slavery Northern presidents."  Refute that, if you can.

Weasel Zippers

2016-electoral-small-png-720x384

"Here’s good recitation of the benefits of the Electoral College. And no, it wasn’t created to benefit slavery as liberal media has been claiming, a complete bastardization of history."

If the WaPo article won't open, try this.  . . . "Actually, there have been only five occasions when a closely divided popular vote and the electoral vote have failed to point in the same direction. No matter. After last week's results, we're hearing a litany of complaints: the electoral college is undemocratic, the electoral college is unnecessary, the electoral college was invented to protect slavery - and the demand to push it down the memory hole." . . .

Ohio State:Two of the nation's leaders speak out

"At the end of the day we will find out what happened," Gov. John Kasich (R), who graduated from Ohio State in 1974, said at a briefing. "We may never totally find out why this person did what they did or why they snapped. We may never find out."*
The People's Cube


Ed Straker   "The case of Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Somali-born Islamic terrorist who ran over and stabbed 11 people with a butcher knife at Ohio State may be what President Obama calls a "teachable moment."  We can feel great sympathy for the victims, but it is also fair to point out that some of the policies advocated by said victims helped contribute to this tragedy.  And the fact is that a large number of Ohio State faculty and students are strongly pro-Islamic immigration.


"Hollie Nyseth Brehm, an assistant professor of criminology (ironically), and student ​Abd Al-Rahman Traboulsi created an organization at Ohio State called "Refuge," bringing in putatively victimized foreigners to get a free education in America." . . .
*Just look at what a failed presidential contender had to say about the terrorist attack:

Sheila Jackson Lee beclowns herself on the Ohio State terror attack   . . ."Thus, when a Somali "refugee" decided to maim or kill as many Americans as he could by driving his car into a crowd, following the instructions ISIS recently gave to Muslims seeking vengeance, Representative Lee followed the ready – fire  aim protocol of the stupid, issuing this tweet:

"Taken literally, the hero of the incident, Ohio State University police officer Alan Horujko is guilty of a "senseless shooting.' " . . .

California regulates cow farts

Fox5NY  "California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm.

"The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock.
"Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.
"Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure.
" 'If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming," said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board, which is drawing up rules to implement the new law.

"Livestock are responsible for 14.5 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, with beef and dairy production accounting for the bulk of it, according to a 2013 United Nations report." . . .

Dems Instantly Turned The OSU Knife Attack Into A Gun Control Debate

Weasel Zippers  "Memo to gun grabbers: (1) The terrorist used a car and a knife to attack the students. (2) The only people with guns were the police who saved lives by shooting the terrorist. (3) The OSU campus is a gun-free zone.
It didn’t take long for the Monday knife attack at Ohio State University to turn into a gun control rallying cry.
First reports and reports throughout the duration of the attack described it as a shooting. Authorities later clarified it was a knife attack. Minutes after news broke that there was an alleged active shooter, Twitter users called for stronger gun control and blamed the attack on lackluster laws.
The school is a “gun free zone,” and instructed students to “run hide fight” and stay in place.
At least eight people have been taken to the hospital, with one critical and another seven stable, according to the fire department. There are also reports at least one person was attacked with a machete.

Did Hillary Clinton just squander her "get out of jail free" card?

From 9/11, 2015: America’s Reckless Refuge for Jihad

Michelle Malkin  . . . "Have you forgotten? Boston jihadist brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received dubious asylum status through their parents thanks to lax vetting. After entering on short-term tourist visas, their mother and father (an ethnic Chechen Muslim) won asylum and acquired U.S. citizenship. Next, younger son Dzhokhar obtained U.S. citizenship. Older son Tamerlan, whose naturalization application was pending, traveled freely between the U.S. and the jihad recruitment zone of Dagestan, Russia, a year before executing their Boston Marathon massacre. Though they had convinced the U.S. that they faced deadly persecution, the Tsarnaevs’ parents both had returned to their native land and were there when their sons perpetrated their bloody terror rampage." . . .

Fidel Castro: The Death of a Tyrant

National Review Editors . . . "The Castros and their compadres fought their revolution in the 1950s and triumphed on New Year’s Day 1959. Many good and democratic Cubans hailed them at the Hotel Nacional in Havana. They were hoping for a better, and more democratic, day. And they had been promised one. 
"Yet the Castros, Che Guevara, and that gang quickly turned the island into something all too familiar in the world: a one-party dictatorship with a gulag. People streamed out of the country, if they were able. One of them was Juanita Castro, who had fought alongside her brothers. 

"Explaining her defection, she said, “I could not remain indifferent to what is happening in my country. My brothers Fidel and Raúl have made it an enormous prison surrounded by water.' ” . . .

Hillary’s Last Gasp

SheepShear

By Fred Lucas  . . . "It would have to be all or nothing for Hillary to become the first woman president. If just two states flip to Clinton, Trump still wins. For instance, suppose the two most populous states switch and Hillary wins Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes and Michigan’s 16, that would bring her to just 266 and Trump down to exactly 270. A two-state scenario that includes Wisconsin’s 10 votes means even less." . . .

The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts  . . . "The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters.  If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232.  No one hits 270.  
. . . 
"If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it?  The answer is to make Trump seem even more illegitimate, that he did not win the popular vote  (he lost by over 2.1 million), he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress."

Jill Stein's vote count madness  . . . "But leftists are experts at deploying deception and chicanery to achieve their ends by whatever means necessary.  And the serial offender Democrats by any name are up to no good on this one.

For Democrats, the road back

Charles Krauthammer


"One of the more salutary outcomes of the recent election is that Democrats are finally beginning to question the wisdom of basing their fortunes on identity politics. Having counted on the allegiance of African Americans, Hispanics, gays, unmarried women and the young — and winning the popular vote all but once since 1992 — they were seduced into believing that they could ride this “coalition of the ascendant” into permanent command of the presidency.
"They’re reconsidering now not because identity politics balkanizes society, creates state-chosen favored groups and fosters communal strife. They’re reconsidering because it’s not working." . . .

Trump electors cite threats over Trump vote

Electoral voters 'deluged' with death threats in multiple states
"Georgia official issues warning: stop harassing electors
While it is not legal to change one’s electoral vote in Michigan it can be done in other states, such as Georgia.
"Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued a statement Friday urging Georgians and others to refrain from using threatening and disparaging language to manipulate electors:
“The Presidential election is over but, unfortunately, the vitriol remains,” stated Secretary of State Brian Kemp. “Our office has received numerous reports of individuals hurling insults and threats at Georgia’s Electors because they are unsettled with America’s choice for President of the United States. This is absolutely unacceptable and those participating in or encouraging these efforts should stop. The electoral process in America has worked, and everyone – Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and others – should respect the will of Georgia’s voters and the Electors who represent them.”
"Arizona reports threats against its electors"
Time for one of Obama's "that's not who we are" speeches.

Final electoral map shows Michigan in Trump's fold but Clinton supporters have been sending threatening emails to the state's 16 electors, trying to get them to change their allegiance to their candidate.

Hillary’s Thugs Are Reportedly Threatening Electoral College Voters
. . . "Michael Banerian wants to show that young adults still have faith in the political system, but he said his selection as one of Michigan’s 16 Electoral College voters has prompted emails urging him to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton and even threatening death.
On Dec. 19, the 22-year-old Banerian is scheduled to join 15 other Michiganians to cast their electoral votes for Republican President-elect Donald Trump. But Trump’s opponents have deluged Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton, according to the Michigan Republican Party.
“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”


Kellyanne Conway smacks Romney: The price of party unity shouldn’t be the Secretary of State position


Will Trump bring the hammer down on Conway over this?

Hot Air  "It’s tremendously bad form for Trump’s inner circle to be airing its debates over personnel on national television. Why knife Romney when he’s still in contention for the job, knowing that you might have to defend his selection in interviews literally tomorrow? As Twitter pal Cuffy Meigs said, anyone considering a job in the administration who’s watching this play out “would be insane to jump in this snake pit.”

"One theory of why Conway’s doing this publicly is that she knows TV is an effective way to reach her boss. If that explains it, we’re in deep trouble. Trump’s own campaign manager should be able to make her point to him without feeling she needs to commandeer a broadcast network’s cameras. And she has made her point to him privately, or so she says.
. . . 
"If it’s true that she’s trying to “send Trump a message” by attacking Romney publicly, Trump should think very carefully about whether he wants her as press secretary, a job for which she’s allegedly the frontrunner. The daily briefing would shift from an opportunity for the press to ask questions of the White House to an odd spectacle of tea-leaf-reading in which the media tries to figure out whether Conway’s answers represent Trump’s actual positions or positions she (and maybe Steve Bannon) are trying to get him to adopt."

Obama Turns His Back On Hillary In Shockingly Public Display


Robert Rich  "Hillary Clinton doesn’t have too many friends these days, and it looks like that reality just keeps getting worse. After her devastating defeat, it seems that the latest person to spit in her face is none other than President Barack Obama – and she can’t be happy about the embarrassing way he just did it for the entire world to see.
"We all know that Hillary has been in hiding while she licked her wounds, but there’s a new spark in her campaign during recent days. As many people are well aware at this point, Jill Stein is pushing for a recount  in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan for the sake of integrity."
. . . 
"However, it would later be Barack Obama that twisted the knife in a shockingly public display. It must have Hillary Clinton thoroughly embarrassed, to say the least. Clearly distancing himself from her, Obama declared that there is absolutely no need for a recount." . . .
Robert Rich is a husband, father, and political writer that seeks to defend Conservative ideals and protect the rights of all Americans in the face of an oppressive government. . .

Reliving the bloodiest battles in the War on Language

Image result for anti political correctness cartoons

Peter Skurkiss  "Beth Reinhard wrote a short piece in The Wall Street Journal entitled "Abortion Battle Set to Rage Anew."  Reading it, one can get the impression that there could be a shift in the culture war.  And no, it's not that funding for Planned Parenthood is now in jeopardy with the election results – which, fortunately, is the case.  Rather, it's the wording in the story that might be a harbinger of things to come.  
"Ms. Reinhard writes, "The mood in the pro-abortion rights community is grim."  Do you see it?  It has been a dog's age since the so-called pro-choice community has been properly labeled as being "pro-abortion" in a major publication.  To refer to a candidate or some organization as "pro-abortion" would invoke howls of protest from the likes of Planned Parenthood, the Democratic establishment, and the mainstream media, causing a retraction.
"So why the change?  Maybe it was something that simply slipped past the paper's editors. 
"Or maybe it was the full-throat endorsement of abortion on demand, including the gruesome partial-birth procedure, by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party that precipitated the wording change.  And then again, it might have been how Donald Trump exposed the hollowness of political correctness during his presidential campaign." . . .

Related: Hey libs: What if whiteness is a disability?  . . . "What if we start thinking of whiteness as a disability, that whites don't really "intend" to be offensive to others, but they are born that way?  After all, gays used to be criticized as being different, and making people uncomfortable, and now they are widely accepted. People believe that homosexuality is just a characteristic they are born with, not at all learned behavior or a choice. It's part of who they are.
"So why can't we think of "whiteness" the same way?  That whiteness is a disability?  If we then adopt this perspective, we must encourage people to accept the whiteness of others, and be understanding.

"In fact, if we take the analogy to gays further, we must "celebrate" whiteness and not victimize those who are white? " . . .

The Race War Could Cost Obama and Team $2 Billion

Image result for black lives matter cartoons

The BlackSphere  "Apparently the compensation to victims of Obama’s race war is $2 billion. That’s the price tag according to former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor Larry Klayman.
"Klayman filed a class-action lawsuit seeking damages of more than $2 billion dollars. The payment is to compensate people hurt when Obama, et al incited a race war that led to the Dallas police officer deaths.
"Klayman founded the government watchdog groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch. " . . ..
"Along with Hillary Clinton, Klayman lists Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party, Former Atty General Eric Holder, George Soros, and others as defendants in the lawsuit.
Klayman explains in a Fox News interview with Deidre Bolton: (Excerpts below)
“That amount of damage is for everybody who’s been harmed here. It’s law enforcement across the board—whether it’s black, white or whatever color, race or creed—police have been trashed, law enforcement trashed… it’s a severe crisis. This President would like to think that he’s king, but he’s no Martin Luther King. In fact, he’s closer to Louis Farrakhan and Al Sharpton in terms of the way he does things.” . . .

 . . . “He only has a problem if there’s crime against blacks or crime is against Muslims or black Muslims for that matter,” Klayman said. “But he doesn’t represent the rest of the country and the people are beginning to see that.”
 "Klayman explained that the suit was in response to the anti-police movement that is sweeping across the country. Further, Klayman spoke with  host J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV’s “America Talks Live to explain that money may be the solution:
“We’re seeking to have the court order it to stop, and we’re seeking large damages, much like people talk about bombing the oil wells of ISIS to cut off the financial flow…If we cut off the financial flow of money to these groups, who are starting a race war for their own political purposes to destroy this country and build it back in their socialist and atheist and other image, then we can stop this.”

Cuban-American Reporter Calls Out Kaepernick on Castro Praise

Legal Insurrection
“Kaepernick, born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, explains to me, the guy born in Havana, how great Castro really is”
Fidel Castro

. . . ""Salguero continues:
Cuba for more than five decades under the Castros has stifled practically any and all dissent. According to Human Rights Watch, “Cuban citizens have been systematically deprived of their fundamental rights to free expression, privacy, association, assembly, movement, and due process of law. Tactics for enforcing political conformity have included police warnings, surveillance, short-term detentions, house arrests, travel restrictions, criminal prosecutions, and politically motivated dismissals from employment.”
Now go to Google images of the Ladies In White protesting on Cuba’s streets. Kaepernick, the poster child for protest among NFL players, should do this. He would see images of women — white, black, mothers, daughters, sisters — systematically violated in one form or another by Castro’s thugs.
They are harassed, spat upon, pushed and even bloodied simply because they are fighting to do in Cuba what Kaepernick does on an NFL sideline without fear or physical repercussion — just before he wears that Castro shirt to his postgame presser.
Image result for armando salguero on castro photos"The entire thing reminds me of the prof’s recent post about Tucker Carlson’s interview with the scariest SJW he’s ever seen.   The dull, robotic recitation of trite and proven lies that trip out of Kaepernick’s mouth are almost surreal.
"Salguero continues:
I’m hoping Kaepernick understands one should not make broad statements about standing up for people’s rights, then slip into a Fidel Castro shirt, suggesting approval for a man who has spent his days on the planet stifling people’s rights.
And that’s exactly the moment Kaepernick shows how lost he truly is. Because in the next breath, Kaepernick, born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, explains to me, the guy born in Havana, how great Castro really is." . . .

“Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus” (Trailer)


"Americans for Peace and Tolerance is releasing a 70-minute documentary on the rise of antisemitism and anti-Israel activity on campuses and the role played by the BDS movement and Students for Justice in Palestine.

"The movie is titled Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus.
I was interviewed for the documentary, along with others such as Alan Dershowitz of Harvard, Richard Landes of Boston University, Bret Stephens of The Wall Street Journal and Caroline Glick of The Jerusalem Post.

"Here is one early review of the film:
I’ve written about the phenomenon more than once, so I didn’t expect to be surprised by anything in the film. But despite knowing about the various incidents described, the sheer volume and intensity of them taken together left me shaken. Yes, shaken, and I’m not easy to shake….
The film makes it clear that the antisemitic movement – that’s what it is – on campuses is well-financed, well-organized and very successful in gaining adherents. It is also becoming more extreme and more explicitly anti-Jewish as time goes by and the “Overton Window” shifts in the direction that favors anti-Jewish expression. What was beyond the pale yesterday becomes the conventional wisdom today….
“Hate Spaces” will premiere in New York on November 30, and will be shown in numerous venues after that. Watching it won’t be a pleasant experience, but definitely an educational one. “Know your enemy” is still good advice.

Indian artist sues to identify herself as … Indian

"A well-known Indian artist is suing the state of Oklahoma to be allowed to identify herself as an Indian.
"In a case brought in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma by the Pacific Legal Foundation, photographer and artist Peggy Fontenot is challenging a state law she contends “violates her constitutional rights to free speech and to earn a living by prohibition her from truthfully describing her work as ‘American Indian-made.'”
"Fontenot is targeting the state’s American Indian Arts and Crafts Sales Act, which, the legal team explained, “prohibits American Indian artists from labeling their work as ‘American Indian’ unless they are members of specified tribes that enjoy the state’s favor.”
"Fontenot is officially a member of the Patawomeck tribe in Virginia, which is recognized by the state. But it is not recognized by the federal government or the state of Oklahoma.
“ 'In essence, Oklahoma is picking and choosing which artists’ rights to respect depending on their tribal membership,” the legal team argued." . . . Read more
