Standing Rock, North Dakota … Protesters, known as water protectors, have gathered by the thousands to block the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline is being constructed in the vicinity of Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe contends that the pipeline will disturb its sacred sites, that the pipeline infringes on existing treaty agreements and puts their water supply (the Missouri River) in danger, as the pipeline is constructed under it.
For many who are familiar with The Liberty Beacon Project and TLBTV’s Eradicating Programmed Ignorance show, the name Randy Maugans and his shows Off Planet Radio and Off Planet TV should be familiar as Randy and I have done several shared shows together, and Randy is a personal friend and contributor to TLB. If there is controversy that needs a discerning voice, or tyranny that needs the spotlight of reality shown upon it … you can bet Randy Maugans and the Off Planet forums are close at hand.
