President Barack Obama has an unexpected foreign policy problem in the Western United States. The Lakota Sioux nation has seceded from the United States, according to a story on the anti-American website La Voz de Aztlan.
We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us, long-time Native American radical leader Russell Means said. The move potentially impacts the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.
He(Means) has continued his push for Sioux independence in the decades since. The Lakota declared independence in 2007, as well, with Means proclaiming: United States colonial rule is at its end!
This time, Means detailed reasons for the secession including a long list of problems facing the Lakota, such as unemployment, healthcare and life expectancy as well use of natural resources. In a rambling video, he also added a massive number of reasons for why his new nation would be both strong and lawful talking about everything from credit card companies to global warming as problems they aim to escape

Let's see if the MSM picks this up.
Ya. Whatever, Russ.
Good luck with that.
So, did the Sioux Lakota Nation actually declare that they’ve seceded, or this just Russell Means shooting his mouth off?
Can they take Elizabeth Warren with them?
Good deal! If they are now an enemy nation inside our borders, I say send in the Marines and level them. Take that Lakota! Take that moldy old treaty and shove it up your collective rectum!
From your mouth to God’s ears!
Maybe Lie-a-watha will actually be able to practice law in that new nation.
Next thing you know, they will acquire nukes
We'll have to be satisfied sending them a few billion. See “The Mouse that Roared.”
Can’t we just steal it back again?
LOL! The Duchy of Grand Fenwick. Again.
Russell Means Comments on Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize. Calls obama The Flim Flam Man. Not for the same reasons as we would have, but still...
I just found this and I was stuned!!
OK, not really. How does this genius expect to defend his newly independent country?
I just hope the gummint’s got the welfare checks cut off already.
Doubt it. The Cherokees in OK tangled with Comanche, Kiowa and Cheyenne.
But I think the Lakota were too far north for them to have much contact.
Possibly you are thinking of the Crow?
If this means none of them vote this November, I think I’m all for this.
The Cherokee and Sioux have had little to do with one another.
The Lakota Sioux kicked the Crow out of the tall grass prairie country during their migration out of Minnesota in the early 19th Century. Most Crows these days (I’ve known a few) loathe the Sioux.
Additional comments from Means included; This time we cannot blame white eyes.
Note my post. I wrote a paper about massacres of the Crow by the Sioux back in my early historian days, as it were.
And of course the Crow drove the Shoshone out of what they now consider their homeland.
