    It’s not their affair that’s important. It’s the almost million dollars she paid him and then lied about paying him back in cash. No checks, no receipts, no proof. She is an officer of the court but she lied which mens she is in perjury. Liar supreme.

    THE CAUSE: "The findings suggested that the pineal gland plays an important part in directional sense and that damage to the gland, as indicated by calcification, causes defective sense of direction – perhaps by altering the intrinsic intracranial electromagnetic environment and thus affecting the magnetite response mechanism."

    Counting the Dead: Estimating the Loss of Life in

    the Indigenous Holocaust, 1492-Present

    David Michael Smith

    University of Houston-Downtown

    During the past century, researchers have learned a great deal about the nature and

    scope of what Russell Thornton has called the demographic collapse of the Indigenous

    population in the Western Hemisphere after 1492.1 As David Stannard has explained, the

    almost inconceivable number of deaths caused by the invasion and conquest of these lands

    by Europeans and their descendants constitute “the worst human holocaust the world had

    ever witnessed.”2 Scholars have long had reliable information on the size of the Indigenous

    population in this hemisphere and this country at its nadir around the turn of the twentieth

    century. And in recent decades, investigators have developed a range of estimates of the

    Native population in the Western Hemisphere before 1492.

    Researchers have also amassed

    considerable knowledge about the role of diseases, wars, genocidal violence, enslavement,

    forced relocations, the destruction of food sources, the devastation of ways of life,

    declining birth rates, and other factors in the Indigenous Holocaust.3 This paper draws on

    the work of Russell Thornton, David Stannard, and other scholars in attempting to count

    the dead—that is, in developing informed and reasonable, if very rough, estimates of the

    total loss of Indigenous lives caused by colonialism in the Western Hemisphere and in what

    is today the United States of America. Although this analysis is inevitably grim and

    saddening, there is much to be gained by understanding the most sustained loss of life in

    human history—both for people living today and for future generations.

    At the turn of the twentieth century, the total number of Native inhabitants living

    in the entire Western Hemisphere had declined to 4-4.5 million.4

    In 1800, only about

    600,000 Indigenous people remained in the coterminous United States.5 By 1900, the

    Indigenous population in this country reached its lowest point of about 237,000 people.6

    The size of the Indigenous population in the hemisphere and this country then began to

    grow again and has increased appreciably during the past century. Today about 70 million

    Indigenous people live in the Western Hemisphere.7 There are now approximately 7.25

    million American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians in the U.S.8

    In view of

    the historically unprecedented and unspeakably tragic depopulation that unfolded after

    1492, the survival of Indigenous people is truly extraordinary. However, even today the

    legacy of invasion, conquest, and colonialism continues to exact a terrible human toll.

    Serious scholarly investigations into the size of the Indigenous population in the

    Western Hemisphere before 1492 began early in the twentieth century. In 1924, Paul Rivet

    estimated that between 40 and 50 million people lived in the hemisphere before the

    Indigenous Holocaust began.

    He has also noted that when the Indigenous lives lost to “blatant genocide”

    in California, Texas, and other areas are added to the toll from official wars, the total

    number of violent deaths is certainly much higher.46

    Counting the Dead 11

    In addition to the deadly impact of diseases, wars, and genocide, Thornton has

    emphasized that many Indigenous nations in what is today the United States were

    “removed, relocated, dispersed, concentrated, or forced to migrate at least once after

    contact with Europeans or Americans.”47 And he has observed that the forced removal of

    over 100,000 Indigenous people to areas west of the Mississippi River during the first half

    of the nineteenth century directly resulted in significant loss of life.48 Moreover, such

    removals and relocations destroyed Indigenous people’s ways of life, which resulted in

    substantial additional loss of life.49 Other devastating assaults on these ways of life


    the Spanish missions in California, Florida, and Texas; the U.S.

    government’s attempts to make Plains Indians into cattle ranchers and

    southern Indians into American farmers…efforts by churches and

    governments to undermine Indian religious, governmental, and kinship

    systems… the often-deliberate destructions of flora and fauna that

    American Indians used for food and other purposes…the near extinction of

    the buffalo…50

    Widespread starvation and malnutrition, the deleterious effects of forced labor, alcoholism,

    demoralization and despair, declining fertility, and other factors also contributed to the

    Indigenous Holocaust.5

    People are people!! This is Trumps modus operandi. His tax schemes in NY span decades.. Whatever Willis did doesn't absolve the pos for his crimes. Pay up Mr billionaire …if you truly have real money and stay far away from NY. Not doing businesses here for three years is a joke when your entire family should be banned for 30…when you are rotting in the ground next to you ex Wife Ivana, who deserved a decent place of rest…not an overgrown bog at the back of a golf course

    SEC approves Trump Truth Social deal for up to $10 billion

    The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has approved a merger of former President Donald Trump's social media platform, Truth Social, with Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC), which is a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC). 

    SO…The SEC just approved the merger for Trump's social media company.
    In other words:
    Trump is about to rake in the cash despite the fact that the entire system is attempting to drain him of all finances.
    Everything they throw at him ends up failing and now he's about to become even richer than before.

    The judge showed impeccable wisdom and foresight. I would have done the same. Allow her to act the part naturally. She revealed her own guilt within her conduct on the stand. Allowing her as much room as possible as she chose no one made her testify she even ran the show… so when he say she is disqualified……….she should take a bow. The evidence is hands down showing the “appearance of ….” so he is allowing her to act like however she chooses as to not be labeled a “racist” or etc. He showed tremendous restraint and higher level of awareness and just the right amount of compassion. Job well done judge.

    I was on the left for 26 yrs, til now. These policies and political attacks are insane. The left is the one trying to supress votes, tried to take trump off a states ballot, the border is beyond a wreck and the left is attempting to use the justice System as a weapon against a political opponent. I knew this back in 2016, and im hearing and seeing it all over again, that Trump is going to win. Ppl see whats going on and how all this is clearly attack Trump to try to stop him from becoming pres again. Yall were shocked back in 2016 and will b again in 2024. All this is makin him stronger and causing ppl to be determined to get out to vote and there are more on the Right than left. Ppl, including myself, who never would've voted for trump. Most tje ppl i work with and both sides of my family have switched due to the economy, inflation and mainly the border. Along with the hypocricies. My next door neighbor is a single mother working 2 jobs And cant afford child care yet the mayor housing, feeding, medical all covered for illegal immigrants and hes handing out 53 mil in taxpayers $ to give to illegals. My uncle left NY last year and took his business with him to Desantis's state, Florida. The rest of my family is leaving New york too after they sell 2 properties. Wait and see in Nov how this goes, yall are gonna be crying and screaming in the streets again. These policies are outta control. Make it easy on the criminals and illegals but the citizens pay. Not gonna work anymore.
