There’s no “there” there

Let’s put it like this like this.  There must be some truth to the fact that Tribal members will not get a dime from the illusive Asino, because the Wicked Wamp 9 are scheming to gather crumbs to give to the beleaguered Mashpee.  This effort to dispel the truth is pretty lame and the brain child of Messy Jessie.  Wouldn’t you just know it ?  It’s so absurd we have to take a breather to break it down.

We’ll be right back.

The never ending nightmare

Kimmie's continued public drunkenness demonstrates the negligence of the Administration and the collapse of our tribal government.

Kimmie’s continued public drunkenness demonstrates the negligence of the Administration and the collapse of our tribal government.

The head of the Tribal Alcohol and Drug Abuse program was arrested on OUI because the tree she ran into did not get out of the way.  Kimmie Frye,Sr has a known alcohol problem but she’s in charge of one of our most critical programs.  She should be in the program not running it.  Kimmie does not have one iota of the education needed to run the program but she is a Frye and the sister of the First Lady Cheryl Frye who also lacks the education to hold her position in the Health department. Cheryl of course has a long rap sheet.

It wouldn’t be so bad if Kimmie would at least stay sober. Right? Not even that.

The staffer under Kimmie is also totally unqualified for the huge salary she makes for knowing nothing about the disease that is killing our people by the droves.The girl sits in meetings fending off questions from tribal  professionals instead of handling this urgent business.

Drug and alcohol addiction is horrific. But this situation is an excellent example of how disinterested the Cromwell administration is in what’s killing us. It was not like this in the PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION.  Now the only people who get help are council family members.  And you better not be a Peters and have a health issue of any kind…no you better not. These are federal discrimination offenses and violations by the way.

We have had 17 drug deaths in 13 months and 42 children left with a single parent or no parent at all.

THIS ADMINISTRATION IS WITHOUT CONSCIENCE. The wrong people are in charge of our most vulnerable people.  It’s not a joke.  These jobs should not be political patronage or part of the tightly knit shameless nepotism that consumes the Fryebal Council.

There are serious consequences to this disgusting incompetence. We have too many people dying .

We would have had a casino by now …but they screwed that up too

The Genting front man Kevin Jones was pitching a pep talk to  the Council the other day….telling them what a great job they were doing….” you got land into trust,” he says….. clearly the kid is not paying attention…so what about our old nemesis Land in Trust ?

It’s like this.  There are some people in Middleboro who say the BIA cannot take our land into trust because it does not have the authority to do it according to the 2009 US Supreme Court decision. So they are suing the BIA.  That trial beginning  July 11. And they have a lot of evidence from the BIA’s previous rejections of our claims that we were under federal jurisdiction before 1934 (which the Supreme Court says is mandatory).  Okay that’s the big problem.

The remedy to that problem is finally getting some traction in the Congress. The FIX legislation is moving through the Congress nicely.  Trouble is it doesn’t address tribes like us who filed for a NEW land into trust in Taunton after 2009.  Here’s what the article said on Indianz.com.

The amendment instead ensures that tribal land-into-trust acquisitions between June 18, 1934, and February 24, 2009, cannot be challenged in court. It does not address any applications going forward or any approvals since the Supreme Court issued its disastrous ruling more than seven years ago.

Reel Wamps has another revelation that will make your head spin around.  If our land in trust application filed for Mashpee and Middleboro were not abandoned by Shovel Ready Ceddie and Mark Harding,  we would have a casino by now. And no debt!  How do you like that? Our application was actually filed before Feb 24, 2009. On August 30, 2007, Chairman Shawn Hendricks held a press conference to announce that he was headed to Nashville to hand deliver the land into trust application paperwork for Mashpee and Middlboro. So there you are.  It was estimated that it would take 18 months to process…even if it took longer, we were under the wire, had viable investors and signed agreements with them and the towns.  The investors would build and finance the casino in Middleboro at 6% interest.  The original investors were a large group of honorable small business people who were also partnered with Sol and Len, prominent South African gaming industry moguls.

Despite the fact that Cheryl Frye (Cromwell) and Cedric as council members were part of

These two have done more damage to us than imaginable. It is as though we are the enemy

These two have done more damage to us than imaginable. It is as though we are the enemy

everything going on, neither Ceddie or Vice Chairman Aaron Tobey knew how serious the Supreme Court decision was when they came into power in February 2009.  Aaron actually told someone that he thought that ” land in trust came with recognition.”  They were moronic and too busy undoing all the positive work done on behalf of the Tribe, firing Elders and acting like the outsiders that they are, to actually do anything. They allowed the application to languish and then abandoned it pursuing a Don Quixote    mission that landed us in majestic Taunton. So when the investors refused to pay their salaries anymore, Mark Harding found the scandalous Native predatory lenders better know as Genting. And Genting is not giving up the cash now either for Asino project. So here we are in a ditch so deep no one will throw us a rope.

Well no rope cause as we told you, Bank of America left us in the ditch because they couldn’t shop the deal to anyone because WE HAVE NO ASSETS and we pay Genting millions in   pre-funded interest which is way too shady for the big bank. That fact was confirmed by the attorneys.  Next action by the brain trust…..Cedric and Robbie are actually going to try to solicit investors……ahem. If Bank of America can’t do it, how can they? Watch for shady deals and huge interest rates.

More financial negligence….they plan to sell the Taunton land to the Mashpee  Gaming Authority for a dollar and mortgage it because again the Tribal casino is a mirage and a very bad risk. They need money. Nobody’s buying in. They already sold off parcels of the Middleboro land instead of using it, Cedric wasted time looking for land making a fool of us all over the state ending up picking the worst location in the world and paying 20 x’s its worth.  We woulda been better off taking the pots and kettles.

Bro needs to worry about Genting financial decline and all those damned lies he told the Mass Gaming Commission

Bro needs to worry about Genting’s financial decline and all those damned lies he told the Mass Gaming Commission

Clearing the land and knocking down an old warehouse costs thousands and there’s nothing going on because Genting is not giving it up. The construction is not funded.

So the Middleboro people don’t need an injunction because Cedric doesn’t have the money to build the damned thing !

So Kevin needs to chill with the propaganda.

Nellie Hicks can see it all now

Nellie is with the old timers, tourin'. Don't worry about her, worry about the Tribe

Nellie is with the old timers, tourin’. Don’t worry about her, worry about the Tribe

Nellie Hicks is laughing at us now….because she can see everything.  She can see what the “no accounts” are doing.  Yes she can.  She can confirm what she thought was going on from the heavens above and she can see what’s in her “newspaper”…. Reel Wamps, before it’s published. And she knows now who’s writing it and how much they love her.

Our Elder super sleuth is touring all around her beloved Mashpee (driving way too fast)with her childhood friends, her sisters, her mother Mrs Stella and yes, she’s bemoaning the death of the tribe and yes, we  mourn hers.

Nellie Hicks was the matriarch of the Hicks family.  She was a hard worker, and a good one.  She was an accountant and the Treasurer under the previous administration and proudly so.  Nellie was loyal.  That’s a Hicks trait.  “Solid.” The Hicks clan always backed the political leaders who brought progress to the tribe.  It made sense.  And Nellie was on the front line.

She let her instincts lead the way.  She loved Glenn Marshal and

Glenn did everything right, what he did wrong in the eyes of the government, he paid for. But as one Tribal Elder said, " He set everything up, and these guys just walked in," and destroyed everything Mashpee.

was part of the that team.  The team that brought recognition to the 1001, who could not believe it finally happened. And now many see the importance of what Glenn Marshall did and how leadership is not part of the current governance equation  under the Wicked Wamp 9. Nellie knew that and attended every meeting alone and watched every move. Long as it didn’t interfere with her weekly hair appointment, she was there. She saw the misbehavior at Dino’s and the bartenders complained to her about the council members indiscretions.  She told what was going on and she spoke up.

Nellie had a  dry sense of humor and irascible when she wanted to be.  ‘Hell, I’m old…I don’t  kaaaya !” she said. Damned right girl !

Nellie’s legacy is a reflection  of her good deeds and her search for the truth  Everyone can’t say they carry Nellie’s Club.  They just can’t. Cause if they did, we wouldn’t be in this God awful mess.

We love and miss you Nellie.Throw that war club down here.

Bank of America quits, Genting financial issues dim future

The bank gave up.  The debt keeps acruing and we have no economic development strategy to pay it back.  Our great grand children will be paying this debt.

The bank gave up. The debt keeps accruing and we have no economic development strategy to pay it back. Our great grand children will be paying this debt.

It became clear at the end of April that Bank of American was abandoning its agreement to search for outside financing for the tribal casino in Taunton.  It is such a futile effort, Bank of America severed all ties, and waived fees for any work it had done. BOA just wanted out. Clearly the search for legitimate gaming finances is untenable. And Cedric s failure to deliver in the process is becoming more apparent to the players in that process.

Genting spokesperson Kevin Jones,  meanwhile sold the Massachusetts Gaming Commission a bill of goods when he said Genting would underwrite the whole casino….over $500 million. He knew that ” the biggest gaming entity in the world ” was tanking. He also knew that Genting repeatedly told Cedric Cromwell and the Council that they had to find outside financing. And now one of the nation’s most legitimate and reliable financial institutions has bailed. We are toxic indeed.

It’s been 6 weeks since the phony groundbreaking and no construction ….at all.  Genting has serious financial issues evident in this headline from this article in The Straits Times Business.

“Genting Singapore’s Q1 profits slumps 83% on bad debt” read more if you can stomach it.

Guess that little story dispels the greatness of Genting. It almost appears that our fledgling Tribe is propping up Genting with the huge interest rates paid on the millions loaned. Right now, we are $285 m in the hole and we get absolutely nothing but a government lead by a liar and the Wicked Wamp 8.Their work ethic amounts to showing up on Friday to pick up a big fat check.

We break it down tomorrow.

 

 

Tradition down the drain

Guy Cash posing as a medicine man in this strange getup at the Meetinghouse in 2009. He always had trouble identifying like his best buddy SRC.

The illusive Guy Cash, fraudulently known as the Tribal Medicine Man is now officially a paid council member.  The Wicked Wamp 8 will now become 9 with the addition of the man nobody knows or sees.

This is yet another abomination perpetrated by the council that would rather line their pockets than care for our people in need.  Cash’s salary of $68k would go a long way toward helping our tribal families. But tribal secretary Marie “Tah Tah” Stone insisted on hiring Cash. The irony is that among Tah Tah’s many bizarre Facebook posts is her campaign motto, ” I support helping the needy.  I oppose subsidizing the greedy.” The troubled Tah Tah is the only person believing that sound bite. Unfortunately,  the most memorable thing she ever did was tripping Cedric Cromwell and cussing him out in front of God and everyone.

Opponents argued that paying the MM would upend the sanctity of tradition, which is based on a calling  to minister and comfort tribal members.The medicine man also keeps the council apprised of the health and welfare of the tribe.Ha! Cash has been a political pawn of Shovel Ready Ceddie from day one. He would show up at council meetings to vote or to make a quorum. Now he’s going to get paid to do it.

Cash was invisible during the many crisis we have experienced especially of late. In a matter of months, 5 tribal members died of drug overdoses and other horrible circumstances. Guy Cash never darkened the doors of grieving families.

Certainly Guy Cash has issues of his own. He is hard pressed to explain the behavior

of his son (who lived with him) and was a administrator on the gaming authority when he was arrested for possessing bags of heroine in a body cavity. It’s funny but pitiful when you think about it. Mostly though, it’s very very telling. And really disturbing stuff. .

Joanne is declared innocent

Most everyone knows by now that Joanne Frye got away again with food stamp fraud.  Her benefactors on the Tribal Council said that ” she didn’t know that she couldn’t get reimbursed for using her granddaughter’s food stamps.” Why is her granddaughter on food stamps and living with her ?

Well alright. But what about Joanne’s holiday gift card scam ?  The gift cards bought

by the Tribe were to be given to Tribal members. Once again, Joanne turned in the receipt for the purchase of some extra turkey and ham for reimbursement.

Joanne has a lot on the Cromwell administration and she will continue to do as little as possible for her $80 k because she brought the crew to the table and she will tell all if they try to do anything to her or her son in particular.  You can’t shame Joanne or her family….but they are doing a hell of a job of shaming us.

Congratulations.

 

“I’m ecstatic. I’m so excited,” said Cedric Cromwell

Well of course you are Cedric….of course you are.Could it be that your ecstasy was provoked by the fact that you and seven other Council members will keep getting paid as you desperately search for investors to relieve the nervous Genting.

Apparently, something is up.  After the “ceremonial”  groundbreaking and the

The absence of the old outhouse is a dead giveaway.

demolition of the warehouse, all construction stopped.  A month later there’s nothing going on.  No Bouse houses,  no construction site trailer just a locked gate and very small vacant lot.

There’s no money to begin the “First Phase.” A third of the millions needed to build the first phase is interest. Who does business like that? More over, who does business with people who do business like that? Getting the facility and the parking lot done by next summer is a reach.  And the question is how is the damned thing finished when you can’t get the money to get started?

There are serious serious issues with Cedric’s search for a financial entity to build the casino itself.  Genting does not want to do it, even with Brockton out of the picture (for now). The real financials have a lot to do  with Genting’s push to get out of underwriting the Asino.

All the newspaper boasting of Gentings financial and gaming prowess is so misleading when combined with renderings of the casino with hotel and amenities never pointing out the “phases” smells bad. It’s obvious that “phases” means no money.  Funny no other gaming entity does it that way.

So the Mass Gaming Commission basically says the Asino is so uncertain they wanted something spectacular to counter it’s potential failure.The Brockton facility wasn’t hitting the mark.It was never about too much competition either. Less is more for certain people.

And in the end Chairman Steven Crosby had buyer’s remorse and was walking back  the Brockton rejection because Cedric is so flaky.

“Not knowing for sure what the tribe is going to do,” he said, was the biggest issue. “If the tribe isn’t able to do anything, whether it’s because of the lawsuit or something else, then we will have made a mistake. I don’t think that’s likely, but it’s a possibility. I just kept wrestling with how much can we count on the tribe’s commitment?”

Looks like a kettle deal to us…clever.

 

The fix is in for Bean Town Gaming

Chairman Cosby is trashing the Brockton casino. The big boys in Bean town casino will reap the reward of low expectations in the southern region. Yes sir.

Chairman Cosby is trashing the Brockton casino. The big boys in Bean town casino will reap the reward of low expectations in the southern region. Yes sir.

It appears that the Chairman of the Mass Gaming is none too impressed with the Brockton Casino and was bad mouthing the project ….hard. Now the commission voted to reject the Brockton  …license.  You could see where this was going…. right to the crooked set up.

Relying on the Tribe to pull through for the region is pretty shady, in light of the fact that financing the project is a fantasy and becomes more and more tenuous every day. Leaving Mashpee out there alone to serve the region is a doomed prospect…course Crosby knows that.  He has no love for us..

Think about this.  If we are left to build a casino in the region, you can bet it will not be a threat to any gaming facility anywhere in the region.  Our guess is that failure is the desired result. All the the gamblers will head to Everett to the Wynn casino. Wynn is very cozy  with the power elite involved  so he stands to benefit in a scandalous way.

Clearly, the Gaming Commission is not interested in looking at the true financials of our Asino….that were released by mistake a few months ago. Maybe the Globe would like to take a look.  Those documents show the Asino going in the hole $25 – $45 m a year.  Why do they care?  Taunton gets paid and so does the Wicked Wamp 8. And their buddies make a load.

We  get a doughnut.  And the only game in town is Wynn.

The Frye’s are true to their reputation

If you are not a Tribal member, what we are about to tell you will be hard to  believe.Let’s preface that with the fact that Tribal members will not be surprised at all.

Joanne (in pink) stumbled into power by fixing the 2009 election driven by the family's insatiable survival instinct. Joane seen here proudly donning her sister Yvonne campaign propaganda.

Joanne (in pink) stumbled into power by fixing the 2009 election, driven by the family’s insatiable survival instinct. She is seen here proudly donning her sister Yvonne’s campaign propaganda. Notice Yvonne left her maiden name,  Frye, off the literature.

Joanne Frye, whose job title varies from office manager/Elders director and all around “Creator of Major Messes,” put in a reimbursement request for about $160 for Job Fair food she purchased with FOOD STAMPS! Jesus Joanne, you make nearly $80 K, Live in a 184 house, and you’re still on the nickel and dime hustle. It’s a disease, clearly.

It is also a felony to make money off of food stamps.  Course in  tradition of preserving the genre of  the never ending hustle, Messy Jessie Baird, the VP tried to cover it up. The Tribal Administrator wanted to fire Joanne of course….but no.  He doesn’t know about Joanne.  Joanne and her sisters threw the 2009 election that brought this nightmare regime into our lives.

The Frye’s are masters of self preservation at any cost. Any cost. The list of atrocities is a long familiar legacy for this family and honestly, this is a case of Joanne giving all the Frye’s a bad name.  But Joanne has allowed herself to be pawn of other family members, especially her sister Mean Travel Queen…. and taking the hit.  But she’s all alone on this one.

And there’s more cover up concerning Yvonne.  A Tribal member called the Mashpee Enterprise asking why Yvonne’s arrest was not published in the police log printed last Friday. She was in court after all. The Tribal member was accusatory of the paper.   The editor said that they print what the Mashpee Police Department sends them,  and they never got any information on Yvonne, not even as a logged event.  She was put in the cruiser and taken to the police department. Everyone on Route 130 saw that.

Kevin, far left , was demoted in MPD from detective to officer years ago . That Frye gene is something

Kevin, far left , was demoted in MPD from detective to officer years ago for foolishness. That Frye gene is something. A moment of prayer indeed.

How about her brother Mashpee Police officer  Kevin Frye and  head of tribal security, has his finger prints all over this…ya think?That’ a Frye move if you’ve ever seen one…..but everyone knows.  Everyone’s always known.
