Happy Christopher Columbus Day: Texas Strikes Down ICWA - Let The Christian Trafficking Of Tiny Humans Assimilation Finally End

Christopher Columbus introducing christianity to the savages
For those of you who think you know about the writings of Christopher Columbus, you probably were taught something completely different.

I prefer to recognize the Gentleman as the founder of modernized peculiar institution because he established a systemic, hierarchic structure of chattel law, the laws of property ownership.

Columbus found the fungibility of tiny humans as international currency.

Pope Nicholas V issued the papal bull Dum Diversas on 18 June, 1452. It authorised Alfonso V of Portugal to reduce any “Saracens (Muslims) and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. This facilitated the Portuguese slave trade from West Africa.

The same pope wrote the bull Romanus Pontifex on January 5, 1455 to the same Alfonso. As a follow-up to the Dum diversas, it extended to the Catholic nations of Europe dominion over discovered lands during the Age of Discovery. Along with sanctifying the seizure of non-Christian lands, it encouraged the enslavement of native, non-Christian peoples in Africa and the New World.

From the journals of Christopher Columbus
on the introduction of the christian canon chattel law
“We weighing all and singular the premises with due meditation, and noting that since we had formerly by other letters of ours granted among other things free and ample faculty to the aforesaid King Alfonso — to invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed, and the kingdoms, dukedoms, principalities, dominions, possessions, and all movable and immovable goods whatsoever held and possessed by them and to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and to apply and appropriate to himself and his successors the kingdoms, dukedoms, counties, principalities, dominions, possessions, and goods, and to convert them to his and their use and profit — by having secured the said faculty, the said King Alfonso, or, by his authority, the aforesaid infante, justly and lawfully has acquired and possessed, and doth possess, these islands, lands, harbors, and seas, and they do of right belong and pertain to the said King Alfonso and his successors”.

In 1493 Alexander VI issued the bull Inter Caetera stating one Christian nation did not have the right to establish dominion over lands previously dominated by another Christian nation, thus establishing the Law of Nations.

Together, the Dum Diversas, the Romanus Pontifex and the Inter Caetera came to serve as the basis and justification for the Doctrine of Discovery, the global slave-trade of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Age of Imperialism.

Happy Christian Human Trafficking Season!

Always remember, we are a christian nation.

Now, that we have a baroquesque, historical understanding of how the christian nations of the Americas were founded, let us jump a few centuries to see what this means under the Indian Child Welfare Act and it being struck down.

Now, let us transpose the Christopher Columbus model of christianizing new lands and its people by adopting (pun intended) the mission statement of U.S. Residential Schools for Native Americans:

Up until the late 1980s, Native American children were still being removed and placed in residential schools for christian assimilation, being, supposedly replaced by ICWA.

Michigan Children's Institute was the first residential institution on the routes for the Orphan Trains or rather trafficking tiny humans out west to work in the fields because it was illegal to own slaves anymore.

Happy Child Abuse Propaganda Month - "Saving The Savages" - 1952 Foster Care Program

So, after the roaring success of the Adoption and Safe Families Act in the privatization of trafficking tiny humans for significant profits, both financial and political, ICWA was born (pun intended).

Native Americans were officially codified as chattel in the creation of a christian human measurement tool called blood quantum laws, the exact same chattel classification laws still used to this day.

This allowed for lots of special funding to the tribes, except there was one problem.

Here we have a previously decided case by, once again, the residuals of the peculiar institution of law, SCOTUS, to tell the savages how they are to categorize their chattel.

SCOTUS To Decide What Is An Indian Family

Say what you will, but ICWA did absolutely nothing to help the children, unless you call helping the children political contributions to campaigns and NGO foreign child welfare organizations.

This chattel classification system needs to go, seriously, brown paper bag label testing is so arcane.

Federal judge in Texas strikes down Indian Child Welfare Act

A federal judge in Texas has struck down the Indian Child Welfare Act, a decades-old federal law aimed at keeping Native American families together.

Backed by the state of Texas, Chad and Jennifer Brackeen — a non-Native Americancouple with two biological children — sued last October for the right to adopt a Native American toddler they had fostered for more than a year. A state court had denied their adoption petition; the federal law gives adoption placement preference to biological family members of Native American children, other members of the child’s tribe, or other Native American families.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sided with the Brackeens, arguing that the law unlawfully “elevates a child’s race over their best interest.”

The Brackeens have since adopted the child and settled their case, but the challenge to the law itself pressed on. Texas, along with Louisiana and Indiana, argued that the law unconstitutionally discriminated on the basis of race and infringed on states’ rights to oversee their own child welfare proceedings.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor on Thursday sided with Texas, ruling that the law is unconstitutional.

Passed in 1978, the law aims to preserve the integrity of Native American tribes. It came at a time when as many as one-third of tribal children were forcibly removed from their biological families in state welfare proceedings, a group of tribal leaders said Friday. Many of those removals were “wholly unjustified,” said representatives from the Cherokee Nation, Morongo Band of Mission Indians, Oneida Nation and Quinalt Indian Nation in a statement condemning O’Connor’s decision.

“These policies devastated tribal communities and we refuse to go back to those darker days,” the group leaders said. “If ICWA is struck down in whole or in part, the victims will be our children and our families, Native children and Native families.”

The leaders, who had intervened in the case, said they are “exploring all available options,” including a stay to maintain the status quo temporarily, as well as an appeal to a higher court.
The Indian Child Welfare Act has long been a controversial law, seeking to balance tribal integrity and thorny child welfare decisions. In 2013, an Oklahoma case involving the law made it to the Supreme Court; the case left the law intact.

Paxton cheered O’Connor’s decision, arguing it protects state sovereignty as well as “the best interest of Texas children.”

“ICWA coerces state agencies and courts to carry out unconstitutional and illegal federal policy, and decide custody based on race,” Paxton said in a statement Friday.
