The (Mormon) militia, officially called the Nauvoo Legion, was composed of Utah's Mormon settlers (members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the LDS Church). Intending to give the appearance of Native American aggression, their plan was to arm some Southern Paiute Native Americans and persuade them to join with a larger party of their own militiamenâ€”disguised as Native Americansâ€”in an attack. During the militia's first assault on the wagon train the emigrants fought back, and a five-day siege ensued. Eventually fear spread among the militia's leaders that some emigrants had caught sight of white men and had likely discovered the identity of their attackers. As a result militia commander William H. Dame ordered his forces to kill the emigrants.

Our Indian tribes have somewhat given up on that idea, Mike, but they did try an interesting tactic, I couldn't quickly find it on the Internet, but Omaha/Winnebago Indian tribes (You guessed it they have a reservation not far from Omaha, Nebraska ) wanted to purchase farms next to their reservation and then add those farm lands to their reservation.
I remember the reaction from non-Indians in the state wasn't favorable. I can't remember how that turned out.

I see the description of the attackers of the women in Cologne in Germany recently are described as quote; "The men were of Arab or North African appearance, he said."
"Women were also targeted in Hamburg.
But the Cologne assaults - near the city's iconic cathedral - were the most serious, German media report. At least one woman was raped, and many were groped. Most of the crimes reported to police were robberies. A volunteer policewoman was among those sexually molested." (BBC)
I wonder if these were "Angela Merkel's" new refugee friends which she invited to come to Germany from Syria? And of course Muslims.
One thing is known for sure Arab/Muslim men have zero respect for European women they see them as prostitutes.

Why would Satan use the Republican party when the Republican party is against abortion, homosexuality and every other thing that Satan is for?
A long article about the Oregon dispute, and it seems rather even-handed, I think the Washington Post likes to toss a tidbit or two to the conservatives, so many should find this interesting.

John MacArthur wrote: There's only one thing God blesses, just one and that is He blesses saving faith in and love for His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. That's the only thing He blesses. Anybody who does not believe in and love the Lord Jesus Christ is among the cursed, right? As Christians, of course we are for morality. We're not for immorality. And we can do some topical, some superficial good, we can through political means because we live in a republic and a democracy, we can mitigate public indecency in some ways. We can mitigate public scandal, can use our democratic privileges. But that does not advance us in divine favor either individually or collectively. In fact, in 1 Corinthians 16:22 it is said, unmistakably, "If any man doesn't love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema," cursed, judged, damned, condemned. There's only one thing God will bless and that's faith in and love for His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Swaurle wrote: "45 percent of the Democrats who responded believe that Christians are a greater threat to America than Muslims." I guess from these stats that Satan must use the Democrat party for his purposes in America. Isn't it true that many papists vote Democrat? That would help prove the stats.
Yes Satan does indeed use the Democratic party in the United States because the Democratic party is the party of Satan because the policies of the Democratic party are anti God and satanic. Whereas the policies of the Republican party are pro God(against abortion and homosexuality). This is why I keep stating that the Democratic party is the party of Satan and the Republican party is the party aligned with Jesus. Why do you refer to Catholics as papists? Catholics really are not supposed to be voting Democrat but are supposed to vote Republican.
"Among those who identify themselves as liberal, it was approaching 50 percent that believe Christians are the greater danger."
Yes the Liberals are bound to be against the Christians. But there are many Liberal Christians like PCUSA and Episcopalians who wouldn't know the Bible from the bus timetable.
The problem is that most people don't really know what a real Christian is. Most churches today are either Liberal or Arminian who are nominal Christians.
The actual Bible believing Christians are the Reformed churches, that is Calvinist, but even within them Satan has his servants trying to rock the boat.
The visible church is everything which calls itself Christian and evangelist but is a complete mix of Roman idolaters, Protestant free willers and heretical religious reprobates.
The majority of people in the religious community who cannot identify the invisible church, are hypocrites who go to church to sing songs, entertain themselves and feign piety. These are the false witness.
WCF.25 "The purest churches under heaven are subject both to mixture and error; and some have so degenerated, as to become no churches of Christ, but synagogues of Satan. Nevertheless, there shall be always a church on earth to worship God according to his will."

Yes, it does seem most Catholics vote for Democrats, despite the pro-abortion stand of that party. But the reverse is not true---that Protestants vote for Republicans, because when Romney came up for President, many Protestants refused to vote for him, and I know one pastor was actively opposed to him. I once saw a chart that showed how each denomination stacked up in terms of wealth and voting. I think Episcopalians had the highest salaries, then Presbyterians, then Methodists, and at the bottom were the Baptists and Pentecostals. Political parties were not part of that chart, so it wouldn't explain how many wealthy Episcopalians still support Democratic candidates who would tax them more. (A good Democrat or liberal would say that they never saw a tax they didn't like!) Nor does it explain how many black Baptists still vote for Democrats who support abortion. In fact, I've heard there is a tradition in those black churches of early voting on the Sunday before Election Day, charter buses are paid for (by the Democratic Party, I guess) to carry those church members from church directly to voting booths. Maybe they also throw in a nice bar-b-q lunch for free, too!
When the title says "Democrats" you can replace with "reporters of the main stream media" where most people get their news from, if they pay any attention to news media at all. I think the 'audience share' of TV news has gone down, and young people use social media to find out 'what's going on' rather than tune in to the 6pm nightly news on TV. Same thing happens with newspapers--mostly people over 55 read them.
Ask yourself--when was the last time you saw in the newspaper or TV news that Muslims were mentioned as a threat, and then ask yourself how Christians are treated. Of course, the media consider the Pope to be a representative of a large percentage of Christians, so whatever he says that agrees with them, like the issue of man-made global warming or capitalism vs. socialism, will get a favorable treatment. They have limited time/space, so if they want to be 'inclusive' they will throw in something from the Grahams. That covers it for them--Catholics and followers of Graham. There are no other Christians in their mind, so anyone who disagrees with those 2 sides are 'wild-eyed fanatics' who are to be distrusted.
