DOJ Forces Hobby Lobby To Return Artifacts Taken From Iraq

The United States filed a civil complaint Wednesday calling on Hobby Lobby to forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts that were smuggled into the United States through dealers in Israel and the United Arab Emirates and shipped to its stores here beginning in 2009 labelled as “ceramics” and “samples.” The company has agreed to return return 5,500 artifacts and pay $3 million to resolve the civil action. Hobby Lobby did not attempt to verify the legal custodian or origin of the 5,513 of the artifacts at any point, according to the suit. The Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby, had been under federal investigation for possible illicit importation since 2011, as first reported in The Daily Beast. The company is famous for winning a landmark Supreme Court case in which they argued companies should not be required to provide contraception for employees under the Affordable Care Act if it does not align with their religious beliefs.

The New York Times just hired a climate denier.

On Feb. 23, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers cleared out Oceti Sakowin, an encampment of activists attempting to block construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Police had arrested over 50 people. But the Freshet Collective, an organization that connects demonstrators with legal resources, was ready.

From August to February, Tara Houska made Morton County, North Dakota, her home base. She’s stood on the frontlines and worked with the Freshet Collective to connect Dakota Access demonstrators facing charges with the legal support they need. A citizen of the Couchiching First Nation, Houska has engaged in activism around the country to fight alongside indigenous communities and advocates through her organization, Honor the Earth. Her work has also brought her to the halls of Congress to lobby for indigenous rights, to divestment rallies, and to the Bernie Sanders campaign, where she worked as an adviser on Native American affairs.

For Houska, progress will only come from working all of these channels, and then some. “It’s the ground fight, it’s the court fight,” she says. “We have to do everything we can.”

Trump Is Just The Wake-up Call Environmental Groups Needed

Donald Trump’s presidential election is causing the mainstream environmental groups to see a new shade of green. While Greenpeace’s ecowarriors were drawing media attention by hanging a giant “Resist” banner near the White House, the Sierra Club was sending out a new batch of urgent fund-raising pleas: “Fight back every day for the next four years. Make a monthly donation to the Sierra Club this second.” Yea, I’d love to help pay Sierra Club’s salaries for the next four years, but where were they the last eight years as the Obama White House reneged on one environmental campaign promise after another? Offering stewardship to the Earth’s ecosystem is a full-time job, not a weekend gig where you come out of hibernation and cherry-pick your battles when there is a convenient boogeyman to rail against. After continuously being hoodwinked into believing President Obama was actually their friend, President Trump is giving environmental groups a stark wake-up call that most of what the Obama White House did to protect the environment were either temporary and easily reversed, or so full of legal loopholes they were meaningless. After all, Obama was a lawyer and knew how to say one thing, and mean another. […]

What’s going on with the Dakota Access pipeline? Let us explain.

With only 25 percent of construction left to go on the contentious Dakota Access pipeline and more than 140 arrests this weekend, the Sioux and their allies are calling for reinforcements to continue blocking the proposed pipeline that could destroy sacred sites and contaminate drinking water.

Let’s rewind a little: After the Standing Rock Sioux lost their legal case against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in September, the Department of Justice announced it would withhold final permits needed for the pipeline to cross under the river near the primary source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. These permits could still be granted, pending further review of the Sioux’s complaints.

The Obama administration also stepped in to ask Dakota Access LLC to voluntarily stop work on the pipeline. Needless to say, the company declined, and construction continues while tribal members and activists seek to delay them by holding prayer ceremonies and cuffing themselves together with PVC pipe.

In a recent interview, Obama said the pipeline may be rerouted to protect the Sioux’s water and land. But that decision — if it comes — won’t happen for weeks. Meanwhile, Dakota Access continues to creep toward the Missouri River.

What will happen next? Stay tuned.
