Joseph Medicine Crow, Tribal War Chief and Historian, Dies at 102
By MIKE McPHATEAPRIL 4, 2016
Joseph Medicine Crow spoke in 2001 at a dedication for a Peace Memorial near the site of the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana.
Joseph Medicine Crow, the last living war chief of the Crow Tribe of Montana and a renowned Native American historian and anthropologist, died on Sunday at a hospice in Billings, Mont. He was 102.
Terry Bullis, the funeral director at Bullis Mortuary in Hardin, Mont., confirmed the death.
Mr. Medicine Crow was the last living person to have heard direct oral testimony from people who were present before the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. His step-grandfather, White Man Runs Him, was among six Crow scouts for George Armstrong Custer.
In 2009, President Obama presented Mr. Medicine Crow with the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, citing his contributions as a World War II service member and the author of seminal works on Native American history. In one wartime incident he stole 50 Nazi SS horses from a German camp, the White House said.
“He was a national treasure,” said Herman J. Viola, a historian who collaborated with Mr. Medicine Crow. “There is simply nobody like him. You meet Joe Medicine Crow, you’re shaking hands with the 19th century.”
Gov. Steve Bullock of Montana said in a tribute on Twitter that Mr. Medicine Crow would “forever serve as an inspiration for all Native Americans — and all Montanans.”
He graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, Ore., in 1938 and earned a master’s degree in anthropology from the University of Southern California a year later, specializing in the effect of European culture on Native Americans. In 2003, the university awarded him an honorary doctorate.
Mr. Medicine Crow said that he had completed his coursework toward the doctorate and had begun writing his dissertation in the early 1940s, but that he never finished.
“I had an uncle who had other plans for me,” he told The Billings Gazette in 2003. “Uncle Sam.”
Serving in the Army in Europe during the war, he accomplished the four traditional deeds that earn Crow Tribe members the status of “war chief” — one of which is stealing an enemy’s horse.
After the war he worked for the Crow Tribe for several years and became an appraiser for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. He retired in 1982.
Mr. Medicine Crow’s wife, Gloria Morrison Medicine Crow, whom he married in 1947, died in 2009. There was no immediate word on his survivors.
Mr. Medicine Crow, who spoke at the United Nations in 1999, often gave speeches at high schools and colleges about the Battle of the Little Bighorn — also known as Custer’s Last Stand — when Cheyenne and Sioux warriors handed Custer and his cavalrymen a crushing defeat near the Little Bighorn River in Montana territory.
Dr. Viola, a curator emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, said it was hard to overstate Mr. Medicine Crow’s value as a link to that moment in American history.
“Joe personally knew four of those scouts that had been with Custer,” he said. “So, I mean, how can you deal with that? As a historian, it was unbelievable to meet someone who could really give you insights into that time period.”
Last year, Mr. Medicine Crow attended the groundbreaking for a middle school that was being named in his honor in Billings. He wore an Indian headdress, sunglasses and three medals around his neck.
“Billings is, like me, getting older,” he said, according to The Billings Gazette. “But also, like me, better.”

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — Gilbert Horn Sr., a Native American code talker who returned from World War II to spend decades serving the Fort Belknap Assiniboine Tribe as a judge and council member, has died of natural causes. He was 92.
Horn died Sunday at Northern Montana Care Center in Havre, Kirkwood Funeral Home said. His memorial service was scheduled Wednesday.
Horn was born on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation in 1923. He joined the U.S. National Guard at age 15 as a way to escape the poverty of the reservation. He enlisted in the Army at 17 after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
Horn was initially trained as a sharpshooter and later received some training in communications and encryption and joined other Indians who used their native languages to send coded messages during World War II. The work of the code talkers remained classified until 1968.
Horn volunteered for service as a member of Merrill's Marauders, a special operations unit of 2,750 men whose mission was to cut Japanese communications and supply lines in the Burmese jungle, the Great Falls Tribune reported.
"It was a fighting unit, ready for action any time," Horn told the Tribune during an interview for a story published in January 2014. "I wanted to go see the war. I didn't want to be in Montana all my life. I wanted to see what's across that big waters called the oceans."
The unit made an 800-mile trek over the Himalaya Mountains into the jungle with only the weapons and supplies they could carry on the 720 mules and horses they brought with them. The Marauders fought through monsoon season. Troops suffered from malaria, dysentery and typhus. Horn was wounded four times.
"There was no support. We didn't have any artillery. They just kept on knocking us down, whittling us down," he said in 2014. "It is hard to believe what we had to go through."
Horn — one of 1,200 soldiers who survived the Marauders' campaign — was awarded a Purple Heart. Each soldier also received a Bronze Star.
Despite his military heroics, when Horn returned to the reservation in June 1945, he said he was "treated like dirt."
Veterans were supposed to be given preferential treatment when applying for certain jobs and qualify for low-interest federal housing loans, but he said that almost never happened.
He worked on his grandparents' farm and received schooling in business management, psychology and legal work.
Horn served on the Assiniboine Treaty Committee for 68 years. He was a member of the Fort Belknap Community Council for 19 years and was a tribal judge for eight years, during which time he wrote the first regulations for the tribe's juvenile court. He was a member of the health board that lobbied for a new clinic and also helped get the Head Start program established on the reservation. One of its buildings was named after Horn, whose Indian name is "Shunk Ta Oba Kni," or "Returns With Prisoner Horse."
In 2013, he received an honorary doctorate in humanitarian services from Montana State University-Northern. In May 2014, he was named the chief of the Fort Belknap Assiniboine Tribe, the first tribal chief in more than 125 years.
Horn is survived by 10 of his 11 children, 37 grandchildren, 71 great-grandchildren and 18 great-great-grandchildren.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz will likely be in Colorado Springs Colorado GOP State convention. John Kasich is expected to be a no show





Donald Trump is close to confirming that he will attend the Colorado GOP State Convention.
State Party Chairman Steve House made the announcement Saturday at the Congressional District 1 convention in Littleton. He cautioned that the arrangements are not yet finalized, but they expect Trump to join Ted Cruz at the event in Colorado Springs.
One candidate who will not attend: Ohio Gov. John Kasich will not attend the convention. Instead, House said, the Kasich campaign is sending former New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu to speak at the party events April 8 and April 9 on his behalf.
The potential for a Trump visit to Colorado — the first of the campaign — has been rumored for days, but House’s statement is the most definitive to date. A Trump campaign spokeswoman said Friday it had no information about a possible Colorado visit.
Trump has no formal campaign organization in Colorado, but his supporters are fervent in their admiration for the candidate.
Cruz confirmed Monday he would address the delegates at the GOP convention. His supporters are expected to win some of the first Colorado national delegates being awarded Saturday at two congressional district conventions. Cruz is also the favorite among potential national delegates at the state convention, giving him the opportunity to win the 19 national delegates that are needed to claim victory in Colorado.

Why So Many Denver International Airport Conspiracy Theories?

Denver International Airport Conspiracy Theories

Recently featured on The Travel Channel’sAmerica Declassified, there are a number of conspiracy theories that capture attention worldwide. Perhaps a most intriguing theory for those living in the United States is the presence of a secret bunker located under the Denver Airport. Let’s take a look at theories that encapsulate this hidden bunker that no longer remains “hidden.” We will discuss not only the reasoning behind this bunker’s presence but we will also look at the abundance of occult symbols that can be found throughout the airport.

Background on Denver Airport

Denver International Airport, often referred to as DEN or DIA, is located in Denver, Colorado and is the largest airport in the United States. The total area of the airport is 53 square miles which also makes DIA the second largest airport in the world behind King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia. As of 2010, Denver International was noted as the fifth busiest airport in the world with more than 635,000 aircraft movements.
The Denver International airport began life in the early 1980’s as the Denver Regional Council of Governments began their search for an area to build the new metro airport. The outlay of the first $60 million was authorized in September of 1989. A number of delays set the construction of the airport back and it wasn’t until February 28, 1995 that Denver International Airport opened and replaced the original airport, Stapleton. The construction of the airport came to nearly $2 billion over budget.


The Runways of the Denver International Airport

One very noticeable point that has repeatedly been brought to light is the layout of the runways of the airport. The shape of the six current runways at the airport is laid out in the shape of a modified swastika.

The Artwork in Denver International Airport

One of the most noticeable and questionable features of the airport is the unorthodox artwork that adorns its walls. Murals that can be viewed in the baggage claim area feature content that, according to some, feature future military oppression and a one world government similar to the concept of “big brother.” The most memorable of these pieces is a large green soldier of sorts with an eagle symbol on his hat, a bayonet tipped gun and a large curved sword in the other hand. Underneath the soldier are signs of poverty and distress, a woman clutching her baby and children sleeping in ruins. Viewers of the piece state that it appears to represent themes of future military oppression and a one world government. The artist of the piece, Leo Tanguma, however claims that the mural and others like it represent man-made destruction of the environment and genocide while the people of the world come together to live in peace. The two large murals are entitled “In Peace and Harmony with Nature” and “The Children of the World Dream of Peace.”

The Dedication Marker

Within the Denver International Airport there is a dedication marker which is inscribed with the compasses and square associated with the Freemasons. Additionally this marker lists two of the grand lodges of Freemasonry located in Colorado. This marker reads:
  • New World Airport Commission
  • Contributors: Martin Marietta Aeronautics, Fentress Bradburn Architects, Zimmerman Metals
Interestingly enough, according to multiple sources the “New World Airport Commission” does not exist.

The Suitcase Demon

Among all of the odd decor of Denver International Airport is a statue of an open suitcase. Within this suitcase is a honed demon with its head in its hands.

The Bunkers

The thing that most intrigues conspiracy theorists about Denver International Airport is the presence of five bunker type buildings below the airport. Blueprints exist of these five buildings that were buried at the beginning of DIA construction. Each of the five buildings were built completely, but then it was decided that they were positioned incorrectly and they were buried. Conspiracy theorists question why these buildings were buried rather than demolished as would usually be the case.
When asked about the underground buildings, airport authorities claim that the buildings are being used for storage and while this may be true, there are two interesting things about this. Firstly, no one denies that these underground buildings exist. Secondly, rumors abound that these underground “storage buildings” are being set up as bunkers.
So what are these bunkers for? It depends who you ask. Conspiracy theorists believe whole heartedly that the 360,000 square foot bunker was built by the “New World Order” to house the elites of society were the economy to collapse or nuclear holocaust to take place. Of course there is no actual proof to this belief, but there are a number of interesting points to note about the airport and the bunkers that lie beneath it.

Interesting Points to Note about the Denver International Airport and the Bunkers

President Obama and Comet Elenin

According to online source “The Chive” when Comet Elenin passed the planet Earth, just missing by 22 million miles, President Obama was in Denver. It is possible that had the comet struck Earth the impact would have been catastrophic; however, the President was in Denver where some believe an underground bunker has existed for some time. According to these conspiracy theorists, Denver houses the largest and most advanced bunker to exist within the United States and it is no coincidence that this is exactly where the president was taken when potential disaster loomed.
Correction: According to Wikipedia and The White House’s website, Obama was in Washington D.C. on the date that Comet Elenin passed the earth (October 16, 2011). He and his family were attending the dedication ceremony for Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Was Denver International Airport Necessary?

Another interesting concern that many conspiracy theorists have is the necessity of DIA in the first place. At the time of its construction, Denver residents utilized Stapleton airport which was six miles away from Denver. Many claim that with another airport within such a short distance that there was no need for the new airport to be built at all unless it was being used to cover up another more secretive construction project like the five bunker buildings below it.

The Funding of Denver International Airport

While the capstone located at Denver International Airport states that the airport was funded by the New World Airport Commission, no one actually knows who this is. There is no record of this commission ever existing with exception of the capstone’s inscription. Consequently there is no solid evidence that points to who funded the 4.8 billion dollar construction project.

The Location of Denver Airport

When looking at the overall lay of the land, Denver is located within reachable distance of both the East and West coast. Denver provides mountainous terrain that can provide a strategic viewpoint as well as a level of protection to those who take shelter in the bunkers should a “doomsday” type event take place.

The Signs…

In addition to the mysterious capstone and what seem to be foreshadowing murals, those who pull up to Denver International Airport will note a giant blue mustang. While many will make the connection with the Denver Broncos and the wild-looking horse that is reared up on its hind legs, conspiracy theorists see something else entirely. The blue cast-fiberglass sculpture is 32 feet tall and weighs 9,000 pounds and was sculpted by New Mexico artist Luis Jimenez. This giant horse rears up with red fiery eyes and resembles one of the horses of the apocalypse as lights from below highlight its bony ribcage and contrast its terrifying eyes.

The Australian Antigen Reference

Another sign that can be found within the airport and is often interpreted as being innocent. The sign sits directly in front of one of the murals. The mural is interpreted by some to represent a world of biological warfare as a giant soldier stands in his gas mask above helpless children. On the floor in front of this mural is what looks like a cart that would be found in a gold mine and it is inscribed with the letters AU AG. This representation leads onlookers to believe that the inscription refers to gold and silver. Conspiracy theorists believe that the inscription refers to the deadly hepatitis strain Australia Antigen AKA AUAG. AUAG was discovered by one of the founders of the airport and is believed to have potential as a weapon should biological warfare ever break out. Coincidentally, this inscription sits in front of the “biological warfare” mural.

A New CIA Base?

News headlines have touted for some time plans for the CIA to move their headquarters to Denver. According to a story in the Washington Post, a U.S. Intelligence official has confirmed the plan for the move and stated that it was being made for “operational reasons.” According to sources around $20 million has been budgeted to help to relocate employees of the agency. Reasoning for the move has been made and includes the following explanations:
  • Moving the CIA to Denver would provide new ways to operate under cover.
  • Moving to Denver would also help to stop the growth of the CIA headquarters and headquarters-based group-think.
No finalized plans have been made for the move as of yet but some former CIA employees criticize the move stating that it makes no sense and it would cause more of a disconnect. Is the tentative move of this domestic division strategic or is it more simply a way to convene more elites around the large underground bunker?

Where is the “Sanity?”

Many people who hear about theories behind the Colorado bunker question the sanity of those who claim its existence. The truth is however, that similar bunkers have been proven to exist. These bunkers, built during the Cold War like the bunker underneath the Greenbrier Hotel, were designed to give shelter to the elite should “the time” come. So is it really so farfetched to believe that similar projects could exist today?

Key World Events Leading Up To the Scouting Of The Airport Location

In the time leading up to the scouting of the airport location, from 1980 to 1983, a number of key world events took place including:

1979

  • The Ayatollah Khomeini takes power in Iran and introduces Islamic law
  • Soviets invade Afghanistan
  • Skylab fell into the Indian Ocean
  • Three Mile Island partial meltdown
  • Radical militants of the Wahhabi sect of Islam stormed the grand mosque of Mecca.

1980

  • The Summer Olympics in USSR which the US boycotted.
  • Turner Cable Network begins the first all news service.
  • Ronald Reagan is elected.
  • Mt. Saint Helens erupts.
  • Sadam Hussein launches war against Iran for close to a decade over oil rights.
  • The US shows its response to the Soviet Union’s support of war in Afghanistan by suspending sales of grain to them.
Did these significant events influence the decision to build a secret underground bunker to protect the social elite? It is very possible, yet until someone is able to provide solid proof, speculation is all we have to turn to. Well, speculation and the fact that editors of The Chive received a mysterious phone call from “Government Affairs” shortly after publishing their article on Denver International Airport, a phone call by a caller who hung up as soon as the phone was answered…

DO YOU FEEL SAFE FLYING OUT OF AMERICAN AIRPORTS LIKE DENVER INTERNATIONAL?

If you DO feel safe flying out of airports in the United States... THINK AGAIN.

IS TEBOW THE BEST PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE?


Consider this news opinion from Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinal.

 Tebow recently opened the door to a future in politics someday.
If only that day were today.
My fellow Americans, I nominate Tim Tebow for president over the loudmouths and liars like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton who currently rule our pathetic political landscape.
Tippecanoe and Tebow, too.
"If there's a chance you can make a difference someday in something, then that would be intriguing," Tebow said when he was asked the other day about a future in politics by Ainsley Earhardt of "Fox & Friends."
I hate to say I told you so, but I was way ahead of the game on this one. Six years ago, before Tebow was drafted into pro football, I predicted he was destined for much bigger things than the NFL.Those few nebulous words from Tebow, whose immense cult of personality continues to grow despite the fact that he hasn't played football in years, is all it took for major news outlets from Time to TMZ to alert the world of his political interest.
Here's what I wrote in the Orlando Sentinel on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010:
"Two games into Tim Tebow's tenure as a starting quarterback in college, I predicted he would win Heisman Trophies plus national championships and go down as one of the greatest college football players ever. Now that his college career is officially over, it's time to make another bold prediction: Tim Tebow will be the President of the United States someday.
"If Tim Tebow wanted to be a political candidate, it's his for the taking," said Orlando attorney John Stemberger, who heads Florida Family Policy Council, a politically connected conservative religious organization. "He would be a political rock star. ... He's handsome, he's humble and he has character and integrity. ... This young man could be the next Ronald Reagan or Jack Kemp if he wanted to be.""Go ahead and laugh if you want. They used to laugh, too, at the notion that another charismatic, conservative former college football player could become president. You might have heard of him. His name was Ronald Reagan.
That's what I wrote then and I'm even more confident of the prediction now. If billionaire blowhards like Trump can skyrocket to the top of the polls, think of what Tebow could become.
"If Tim Tebow really put his mind to it, he would be a tremendous political candidate," said Aubrey Jewett, a political science professor at UCF. "A good political campaign manager would look at Tebow and say, 'Now this is a guy I can sell in a positive way.'"
And isn't "positive" what we need most in today's noxious, negative, poisonous, polarizing political cesspool? Tebow uplifts and unifies; he doesn't denigrate and divide. In fact, nothing drives him crazier — whether it be in politics or religion — than divisive leaders. After he delivered a sermon at the Real Life Church in Clermont recently, I had a chance to talk to him about this very issue.
"The goal is to bring people together," Tebow said then. "We're not supposed to divide people. People are going to disagree on things, but we can have unity if our No. 1 priority is we love Jesus and our No. 2 priority is we love people. Let's agree on that and have the 300,000 churches in this country work together. If we did that, nobody would be dying of hunger."
As Jewett points out, Tebow already has a strong political base with the Christian right. In fact, an argument could be made that with 97-year-old Billy Graham out of the public spotlight, Tebow is the most visible Christian leader in this country (sorry, Joel Osteen). And the most politically palatable to the mainstream.
Jewett compares Tebow to Kemp, a charismatic former NFL quarterback who was a nine-term U.S. congressman and former Republican vice presidential candidate. Kemp once described himself as a "bleeding heart conservative" whom Jewett says dispatched his beliefs in a "positive and uplifting" way.
Can you think of a more compassionate conservative than Tebow, a man who builds hospitals for the needy in the Philippines, does missionary work to provide food and medical care to Third World countries, preaches to prisoners on death row and just held a "Night to Shine" prom for 32,000 special-needs kids in 48 different states and seven countries?
The man is unimpeachable. Even the most devout "pro choice" liberal would have a hard time criticizing Tebow for his very public "right to life" stance when the only reason he was even born is because his critically ill mother shunned a doctor's recommendation to undergo an abortion.
Besides, if given a choice, who would Republican women vote for: Trump, a man who's been married three times and had multiple affairs or Tebow, a self-described virgin who is saving himself for marriage?
I wrote it six years ago and I will reiterate it today: Tebow will become the first presidential candidate to take part in televised debates while wearing Biblical eye-black. And he won't even have to write a new inauguration address. He can just slightly adjust his famous "Promise" speech from when the Gators lost to Ole Miss in 2008.
"I promise you one thing: A lot of good will come from you voting me into office. You will never see any president in the history of this republic work as hard as I will work over the next four years to preserve our union's status as the greatest nation on earth. … God bless."

DO YOU SUPPORT TRUMP? OR DO YOU HATE HIM?
THIS TEST IS THE TOPIC OF TODAY'S SHOW. MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT HOW A PERSON SCORES ON THIS TEST IS A VERY ACCURATE PREDICTOR OF WHO THEY WILL SUPPORT IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE. ‪#‎richardrandallshow‬ 8:30-10:00 am and 10:00-11:00 pm .
Sixty-six years ago, the Authoritarian Personality studies attempted to "construct an instrument that would yield an estimate of fascist receptivity at the personality level."
This online, interactive F Scale presents that instrument in its final form. Additional infomation, including an explanation of the personality variables the F Scale tries to measure, is given below after the questionnaire. So take the F Scale now --- or else!
