Nathan Phillips, the Native American man at the center of a controversy involving Covington Catholic High School students, has a history of left-wing and anti-Trump activism, and has been previously featured in the media for such activism.
“Native Youth Alliance Executive Director Nathan Phillips of Omaha Tribe in Nebraska beats a drum on the steps in front of the Trump International Hotel during a protest April 27, 2017 in Washington, DC,” says a 2017 report with the following image:
The media has portrayed Phillips as the victim of “racist” harassment by the young boys, but the narrative quickly fell apart when a video emerged showing the full interaction between Phillips and Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann. It is clear that Phillips and his gang approached the boys first.
This new information about Phillips’ history of leftist activism further dispels the narrative that the boys were harassing Phillips, and proves that Phillips likely saw the boys wearing their #MAGA hats and harassed them. In plain, Phillips sought out the boys, not the other way around, as the mainstream press would have you believe.
Phillips was also featured in a 2018 Vogue article, in which he and all Native Americans were depicted as victims of the Trump administration as they protested the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
“This is how we used to gather every day at camp,” said Nathan Phillips, a member of the Omaha Nation and a founder of the Native Youth Alliance, the grassroots indigenous awareness organization that put out the call for the walk. And later: “This is how we gathered on the last day of camp.”
It was February 22, exactly one year after the governor of North Dakota ordered the evacuation of the camps, which for 11 months had maintained an occupied resistance against the pipeline. Oil has been flowing in the $3.8 billion, 1,172-mile-long Dakota Access Pipeline since July.
Most of those gathered had made their home in teepees and yurts and tents back when the resistance was at its peak in late 2016. They had weathered storms and blizzards and bitter cold and a muddy thaw; they endured surveillance by helicopter and infiltrators sent by a private security firm hired by the developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline. They reported surviving rubber bullets, LRAD sound cannons, mace, pepper spray, and dogs, too. They had put their lives on hold and on the line in order to defend treaty rights and sacred lands and, primarily, water. An earlier proposed path that ran just north of Bismarck was scuttled; now it would cross twice under the Missouri River, the primary source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Sioux and an estimated 17 million more downstream. They were water protectors, not protesters, they maintained.
As previously reported by Big League Politics, Phillips was also at the center of controversy in 2015, during which he cried racism against students at Eastern Michigan University for dressing up like Native Americans. He claims the students battered him during the interaction.
Given Phillips’ history of such activism and full video showing that Phillips approached the young men of Covington Catholic, the mainstream press has once again been outed for a falsified smear job against conservatives. They owe, at the very least, an apology to those young men, whom they used as political pawns.

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
