    Climate Change Expert: Dr. Jay Lehr, Ph.D. Science Director at The Heartland Institute. Plus Editor of Rational Readings on Environmental Concerns. 

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    December 11, 2018
    Dr. Jay Lehr is expecting a “Climate Change Crazy” 2019. Many Dem’s ran strictly on a Climate Change platform, convincing constituents that “we will all burn up by 2020.” The truly sad thing is that its a total fraud!
    “Democratic socialist wunderkind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Friday that her surprising election victory, and those of other liberal congressional freshmen, are on a par with a series of landmark moments in American history.
    During a press conference hosted by the Sunshine Movement, an advocacy group that leverages youth protests to oppose global warming, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez said her Nov. 6 achievement ranks with the 1969 Moon landing and the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
    ‘We’ve done what we thought was impossible,’ she told a small crowd who braved 40-degree weather.
    ‘We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dig deep, and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year.’

    The Peoples Compact - Does It include Any Off Reservation Claims? What Is The 1966 Indian Claims Commission Settlement?

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    December 12, 2018

    Lot’s of questions still exist about the “peoples compact”  including, what about the claims of the elimination of all the off reservation water claims filed by the Tribes and United States in all of Montana, Plus why those claims have no basis in law or history.

    We also talk with the authors, about the study the Indian Claims Commission settlement the Tribes signed in 1966 which forever barred them from seeking any off reservation claims for anything, in any forum.

    This fact, plus other relevant facts including Article 3 of the Treaty of Hellgate and the definition of a federal reserved water right, are the solid reasons the People’s Compact simply does not include any off reservation claims.
