A federal judge has issued a temporary halt to SOME construction of an oil pipeline in North Dakota that Native American tribes have been protesting. Some of those protests turned violent over the weekend. Lawrence reports what he learned at the reservation.

Yup but why are they standing on asphalt made from oil?

Didn't want to get grass stains on their Nike oil sourced Pleather moccasins?

Someone asked us yesterday "How are you guys not scared?"
Because we have been here before. We are here because they have wiped out over 90% of our population, and we're not going to allow them to take the remainder of us. We are here because it is in our blood to protect this land, to protect this water, and to protect our people. Our ancestors have fought and died for us to be here, we're not afraid of no bulldozers.

You can put all of this on Obama and his drive to make America energy independent. I mean, does anyone else find it odd that Obama utterly refused to have the Keystone XL built and yet the EXACT same company will be building this pipeline?
And don't try and tell me it's because our oil is mostly bitumen because that's what California's oil deposits are while Utah's oil deposits are tar sands like Alberta's.
