We were wrong

The Boston Globe says the federal appellate court will hear the appeal of the lower court decision that says the US Department of Interior  did not have the authority to take our land into trust.  We are a landless Tribe. Back to limbo.

We were wrong because we didn’t think the tribe or Interior would  appeal, but just  as we said about this case from the beginning….. It is impossible to show that the Mashpee Wampanoag or were under federal jurisdiction prior to 1934…..because we were not.  That was why the first judge said Interior was wrong to do it in the first place.  It hard to believe that Interior or Cedric’s clown crowd of lawyers and consultants will come up with the proof the second time when they couldn’t  produce it the first time.  It’s like pulling a rabbit out of your behind.

By the way, this has nothing to do with whether or not we were a tribe, which is part of the ” lame spin ” the PR firm is trying to put on the loosing strategy…..because in 1934 there was no formal recognition process.  The federal government only acknowledged  “treaty” tribes which were on the Daws Roll  and were UNDER FEDERAL JURISDICTION BECAUSE THEY WERE ON RESERVATIONS.  Of which we were not.

Our validity as a tribe is held up as the gold standard of recognition by the BIA. We produced  the most detailed documentation and  proof that we consistently stayed together as an indigenous community, on our land and kept our traditions. Unfortunately, every family that played a significant role in our recognition was removed immediately from having any role in our future…..even the Elders were driven out, which is the greatest violation of our tradition.  Instead, the least worthy of us is governing us. As Real Mashpee knows.  This has been devastating.  Devastating.

As for  the funding for the casino, Sean P. Murphy might want to call a few council members to see how that’s going. He might want to check on Genting’s struggling slot dump in NY.  Cause Genting is not paying for any casino.  In fact, Cedric Cromwell has stopped soliciting for nearly a year because no one was buying in.  As we said in an earlier post, 5th Third Bank chose to bail out Genting’s NY facility with over $400 m instead of granting a loan for the tribal Asino construction .  They said they wanted to wait and see.  Casinos aren’t a good bet these days and our situation is beyond bleak.

The appeal is a delaying tactic because Shovel Ready Ceddie knows there’s no positive outcome.  Navajo Joe knows that and so does that “winning” wiz kid “Attorney Arlinda Arlinda You’re Such a Big Spenda !”

Ceddie has an eye toward getting re-elected and getting paid until the money runs out in the Spring. Genting has been saying for over a year that the Tribe had to find  their own money.

Explaining where over $320 m went is the big problem for Ceddie and the Wicked Wamp 8. And finger-pointing excuses won’t do.

The IRS cometh and the Comptroller wants “the access code”

All the suffering we’ve been through, there’s no surprise at the latest ominous sign sent. The Tribe is being audited.  That’s not the worst thing that could happen.  Actually, it happens a lot, ask Donald Trump. You know Trump who’s so not into Native Americans.  The authority on ethnicity and then …not so much. We bring up Trump because when he’s in charge after January 20th…. the government might be trying to head off any questions of, “Why was this going on for 7 years?” Right.  We have been asking the same thing.  For 7 years.

Back to the audit. An IRS audit is funky…not pleasant.  So what’s happening is what we expected to happen.  Cedric brought in people (we all know who), to “fix” things, about a month ago. She can’t fix anything with a forensic audit looming, which is surely going to happen.  And guess where one of the problems is? Joanne Frye and the Elders Department !!! Hundreds of thousands of dollars in miscellaneous expenditures. Enter the poor White girl.  White girl Comptroller who wants the “code” bucking the Fryebal Council lead by Joanne Frye who brought her family to power.  Joanne has a lot to hide.

Ceddie clowns with his right hand, the "Deaconess" as the Frybal Council collapses under the weight of corruption.

Ceddie clowns with his right hand, the “Deaconess” as the Frybal Council collapses under the weight of corruption.

So they’re trying to get the White girl fired. Yup. White girl trying to do her job and she’s dealing with Kevin Frye (Super Fly Indian Cop) who tells security cop (nonIndian) TJ to press assault charges against the WG….cause she put her hands on his shoulder.  Right.  The end game is to get the White girl fired cause she’s on to something and everyone knows the Frybal Council will not be satisfied until every Frye ( even infants) are on the payroll and keep stealing.  Hundreds of thousands of dollars in miscellaneous expenditures…that’s a low ball estimate,  which is questionable.

The IRS cometh. The Gaming Authority should be very very interesting also regarding what Ceddie  did with $2m dollars a month for about 5 years. It would be different if we were paying lawyers in Washington to fix the law via the Congress.  No nothing like that.

Instead, Cedric filed flaky unsubstantiated documentation to justify land in trust in Taunton. It was rejected in the end.  So now Dec 12 looms when the BIA and the Tribe decide if they will appeal in the District Court.  How about no.

The most horrific part is that all those White lawyers and consultants got paid millions of dollars and delivered nothing.  We are worse off than we were when they took over in 2009.  Worse.

No casino, economic development, and more of our people on welfare.  Our integrity is gone.  Everything our leaders worked for years ago is gone.  Respect is gone.

Course now the Cromwell’s have turned on the Fryebal Council after all these years. Ellen Frye Sharpe, who is not supposed to be working for the Tribe because of past serious grievances, is searching for new Frye hires, which violates federal law.  Now the Fryes want to fire  her.  Frying at the Fryebal Council.

And her sister Joanne has a lot to hide..

Let’s break it down.  The Justice Department can go back and look at that damned fraudulent 2009 election and see how we went wrong. Their sister Ca was allowing nontribal members to vote, and they were phone banking them to come and vote without Elders to verify them as tribal members. Great.

We can’t blame it all on the Fryes.  Trish Keliinui was right in there with them….all dumb..  She kept saying, ” I got this .” Ya.  As the chair of the election committee, she NEVER reviewed the final voter list with the committee or the Elders. She let Joanne and her sister Ca ( who had access to the membership applications in enrollment) take the ” PENDING  MEMBERS” and merge them with legitimate enrolled  voters. There was no oversight of all the unknown casino stalkers voting. Not an Elder around to question people who were not enrolled members being allowed to vote.  Illegal voters.  And all the documentation disappeared. Imagine that !. Thanks Trish.  She tarnished the family legacy all by herself.

We have been sliding down the slippery slope ever since and again, we are worse off than we were in 2009.

No land in trust, no casino …..no hope of a casino.

You know Trump’s  best buddy is Steve  Wynn who has a casino cranking while Cedric doesn’t even talk about our pitiful attempt to get Asino in the southern part of the state. The Mass Gaming Commission loves Wynn touring his facility.  Wonder why ? But worse than that.  Trump does not hold Natives in very high esteem, we all know why.

Again, December 12 will tell all.  Either the BIA and the Tribe appeal or not Probably not, here’s why… from two months ago.

Well, the federal judge did it.  He said he would not reconsider his decision on our land in trust granted by the BIA. Why? Because he said we were not under federal jurisdiction per the INFAMOUS 2009 US SUPREME COURT decision. The BIA failed to make the case…and we said just that in the previous post. But Shovel Ready Ceddie’s flak did spin that tried to turn a failure into success.  

You see, Cedric Cromwell has to keep getting paid…so does the do nothing Fryebal Council and the cadre of lawyers and consultants.  They have a budget that will last them into the spring.

http://www.tauntongazette.com/news/20161013/judge-narrows-his-taunton-casino-ruling

Is our tribal government as ridiculous as it seems? Sure it is.  Let’s start with the biggest red flag in the world.  When Bank of America waved goodbye in April and a few months later, when we were still without underwriting for the Asino, Cedric approached the small bank.  5th Third Bank for underwriting and what they did was say? ” Well let’s see how this goes for you guys.” Well, the little bank gave Genting $435m  instead of Cedric.

Well Genting is less of a risk than we are with our pimped out ” near do well” phony Indian Chief, Shovel Ready Ceddie.

First of all Genting is limping if you go back and read our previous posts about how it’s gaming interest are failing compounded by the unraveling of our land in trust. 5th Third Bank ( we know, you never heard of them…another red flag) decided to bail out Genting”s casino slot dump in New York.  Right.

Meanwhile the former head of the BIA, Kevin Washburn started spilling his guts about how they were pressured to approve the first compact and the land in trust.

We’ve been waiting for something good to happen but …it just doesn’t.

The Pay-Day Loan

We waited to see what the Bureau of Indian Affairs was going to do about the federal court rejection of its  Land in Trust acquisition.  And we have to say we were very surprised because the appeal is a huge reach. Here’s why.

They are basically saying that the highest court in the land, the last stop, the FINAL determiner for legal action, RENDERED the WRONG DECISION.  In other words, the US Supreme Court didn’t know what it was talking about.

Now……you think about that for a minute.  The court that settles and interprets all things…from who’s President, civil rights, trade agreements healthcare…on an on…is going to be reversed by a lower court ? Okay.  Not happening.

David Weeden and SRC are all smiles, dreaming of the continued pay checks during the appeal, and the false promise of a pot of gold. Bad layers, staff and consultants keep on doing shoddy work on the gravy train. Unconscionable.

David Weeden and SRC are all smiles, dreaming of the continued pay checks during the appeal, and the false promise of a pot of gold. Bad lawyers, staff and consultants keep on doing shoddy work on the gravy train. Unconscionable.

What will happen is that the Pay Day Loan for the Tribe that fuels Shovel Ready Ceddie, his Wicked Wamp 8 and the Fryebal Council will keep on getting paid, racking up the high interest that is a scandal that keeps on growing.

$308,000,000 is a lotta debt with nothing to show but scam. No casino, no LIT, no sovereignty,  just bad leadership that keeps a phantom government rolling on.

We told the truth, SRC & Arlinda “Big Spender” lied about the Asino

Take a look at the story about our casino situation. Cedric Cromwell and Arlinda Locklear lied knowing full well that to continue to even clear the land would put the tribe in contempt of court. To be in contempt  means you have to violate the judges ruling. Okay.  Remanding the bad decision back to the BIA says something else to the Indian agency, and it goes something like this….

” Do you guys really want to keep endorsing this flaky, weak LIT justification?”

So the BIA has 60 days to decide if they want to continue to humiliate themselves, while most of the people who okayed this thing have left the agency.  Our bet is they don’t do it.

And if Cedric appeals, its more millions in wasted legal fees that keep the the Wicked Wamp 9 and the Fryebal Council ” rolling in the dough. ” There is a way to get the land in trust but Cedric has been diddling for 7 years, a pawn of the lawyers and consultants who kept getting checks and milking the Tribe.

This has become a pathetic situation that looks like it will continue.  The question is, will the struggling Genting keep funding the Fryebal Council ?

Embarrassing inaccuracies in LIT application doomed BIA defense

The Cromwell administration spent millions on incompetent lawyers and consultants who composed the LIT application that not only defies the historic record but actually proves that we were never under federal jurisdiction.

The romantic version of the humiliation of Metacomet being forced to sign the treaty that disarmed his warriors. The result was native uprising called the KIng Philips War that nearly succeeded in pushing the colonist " back into the sea."

The romantic version of the humiliation of Metacomet being forced to sign the treaty that disarmed his warriors. The result was native uprising called the KIng Philips War that nearly annihilated the Europeans and almost succeeded in pushing them ” back into the sea.”

They actually point to the fact that King Philiip…Metacomet, our Sachem, signed a treaty with the colonists & King Charles II in 1671. They said that treaty proves we were under federal jurisdiction.  Well, just the opposite. An elementary school student knows that the United States became an independent nation in 1776.  So the point here people is that the last thing the founding fathers did was honor any treaties or

oppressors…..let alone 100 years later..after the fact.

Unlike the western tribes who bore the brunt of hundreds of broken treaties with the US government…Meacomet’s treaty was with the colonists and their King, Charles II.

It was not transferable. Contrary to what Cedric says… We had no federal government in 1671. That’s what the BIA said during the recognition process.  All that proved was the were were ” A HISTORIC TRIBE.”

The BIA actually went forward with his theory passionately, which raises eyebrows because the BIA’s past rejections of that theory were were used by the plaintiffs suing the BIA.  It is very very interesting how this application was accepted on such flimsy inaccurate documentation. Very very interesting indeed.

This is the result of governance by  Ceddie.  Ceddie who does not know tribal history, does not know his own family members, does not know us.  He therefore is taken advantage of by consultants who have billed the Mashpee tens of millions of dollars for crap that can be verified or disqualified on Google.

To allow this $308m  charade to continue is just the means to keep Ceddie and the Fryebal Council a pay check. Cedric has a lot of explaining to do to the Feds about all that money that was being washed and dried and we come up with a donut.

He made damned fools of the Mass Gaming Commission who have the nerve to say they are confused. We’re not confused , but oh, wait, were just dumb Indians.  The real Indians don’t come near the Fryebal Council.

There is a way to a casino but this is not it.  If the the tribe continues down this road, with no alternative to fill the gap we will be worse off.

But keep going to meetings and listening to an outsider who is robbing you blind because you are worshiping a pipe dream.

But don’t listen to us…keep on.

The Tribe should demand their removal.  They wouldn’t survive 1 day in the White world, but they are preying on us and our kids and our grand kids.

Keep on.

 

Two words: “federal jurisdiction”

The Cromwell  Administration is preparing for the Special Meeting Thursday

Let's see what they tell us.  They've never shared the plan before why start now.

Let’s see what they tell us. They’ve never shared the plan before why start now?

and they are attempting to try to spin their way out of this $308m black hole they dumped us in. You can tell by the content of the Cape Cod Times newspaper article where Arlinda Locklear continues to spin misinformation. She says that we can still get LIT because the judge didn’t mean what he said about the BIA being without authority to do it ! And then she continues to push the tiered argument that we are like the Cowlitz. The Cowlitz  just got a favorable federal ruling about their second reservation where they want to build a casino.  If it’s “not so bad” why is the humiliated BIA saying it will appeal?

Course Arlinda thinks we’re illiterate.  Anyone who reads the decision can

The infatuation with the Cowlitz Tribe died in the courtroom.  They have been under federal jurisdiction since the mid 1800's. Arlinda has milked us for $600,000 with the Cowlitz theory, and partner Navajo Joe for nearly $!,000,000,000 in legal fees for bad advice.

reference pages 14 & 22 to see where the judge debunks the Cowlitz connection. He says we are in no way even sightly similar to the Cowlitz. Then if that isn’t enough, Ceddie and Arlinda use the lame argument that the judge is racist.  (We re- posted the Cowlitz federal jurisdiction confirmation from the Congressional record from our June 25, 2015 story, to reconfirm that they are on the federal record while WE ARE NOT)

It’s the classic case of deflecting attention from the real issue….$308 m debt. We want to know why we’re saddled with  so much debt and burdened with a bloated government that provides no service. Of course service is the sole purpose of the government.  But not ours. Oh, oh…. wait we forgot ….we do have the Fryebal Council employment agency which is the best in Indian Country….at nepotism.

But let’s get to the pressing issue…why are we right back where we started from in 2009?

SRS faking it knowing there was never a dime available to build the Asino.  He couldn't get the financing before the decision, and will never get it now.

SRS faking it knowing there was never a dime available to build the Asino. He couldn’t get the financing before the court decision, and will never get it now.

We have no sovereign land in Taunton or Mashpee…but we have a lotta debt. 

We have a Gaming Authority stashing millions every 3 months… and no  Casino. Following the ruling Shovel Ready Ceddie admitted, that there’s no financing for the casino. So the 10 prospective financial institutions never got back to him. Actually they probably never existed. So we’re back to Genting who is silent. Ceddie claims now that Genting will only fund the so called Tribal Government. That’s what’s bothering the Fryebal Council totally.  They want to know if that free money will keep on coming.  They will probably hire 5 more Fryes tomorrow. Carp Diem !

You have to ask yourself why would Genting continue if they weren’t getting more out of the deal than they were putting in. But it’s clear that Genting kept pressuring for outside financing because they did not want to finance the Asino.

Empty lots in Taunton without casino prospects.  Tauton still gets 8 million and as usual we get nothing.

Empty overpriced lots in Taunton without casino prospects. Taunton still gets 8 million every year and as usual we get nothing.

While the media keeps talking about ” the construction ” of the casino is still underway, what they don’t know is that the money stops after the land is cleared.  As we said, there’s no money to put up one piece of steel or concrete.

Our reputation is so sullied by leadership incompetence

it will take years to even attempt to correct it.

The Mass Gaming Commission never challenged the many changes to the plan and the questionable financing of the incomplete plan.  There was never Tribal economic development plan for the Indian Gaming Commission which is mandatory….guess  Arlinda Cowlitz Spin is guaranteed to generate Buyers Remorse for the the MGC .

So expect Ceddie to start talking about going commercial.  But once again financing is the key and that is so out of the picture.

A bigger problem for this administration is the fact that these Council members are taking huge salaries for years and the government delivers no services to the people.  Its called misfeasance. Then they gave themselves bonuses when the land went into trust.  They need to refund that money. They need another $15 million  by August to run the government. Well over 50% of the money goes to salaries for the Fryebal Council and no one knows what the hell they do.  We do know we get turkey and ham and any service comes from Indian Health service, the federal government.  And Ceddie can’t tell you what they did with $308 m…rather he won’t tell you.  Scandalous indeed.

The Wicked Wamp 9 should refund all those bonuses for the bogus Land in Trust scam.  They should stop taking a salary.

Oh I know, that’s too funny eh ?

Tomorrow, the payroll update, and why we keep dying under their noses.

Below is what distinguishes us from  the Cowlitz  from the June 2015 story

Below is the Cowlitz federal  connection.  Don’t know how much more “federal” you can get beyond the “Congress” & the “Secretary of Interior.”

CONFEDERATED TRIBES OF CHEHALIS INDIAN RESERVATION,
Plaintiff-Appellant, Cross-Appellee,
and
Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe, Plaintiff-Appellant,
v.
STATE OF WASHINGTON; William R. Wilkerson, individually and
as Acting Director of the State of Washington Department of
Fisheries; Frank R. Lockard, individually and as Director
of the State of Washington Department of Game; Washington
State Game Commission, Defendants-Appellees,
and
UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
STATE OF WASHINGTON, Defendant-Appellee, Cross-Appellant.

Nos. 95-35370, 95-35371.

United States Court of Appeals,
Ninth Circuit.

In 1911, Congress directed the Secretary of Interior to make allotments on the Quinault Reservation under the provisions of the allotment laws to “all members of the Hoh, Quileute, Ozette or other tribes of Indians of Washington who are affiliated with the Quinaielt and Quileute tribes in the [Treaty of Olympia] and who may elect to take allotments on the Quinault Reservation rather than on the reservations set aside for these tribes.” The Supreme Court subsequently ruled that members of the Chehalis, Chinook and Cowlitz tribes were entitled to allotments on the Quinault reservation pursuant to this act and the 1873 executive order. Halbert, 283 U.S. at 758, 51 S.Ct. at 616-17.

So Arlinda’s extended projections have kept  her in moola  ($480,000) for over 4 years of unproductive legal work.  But you would think she would at least  do her research about us and stop using the Cowlitz as the means to collect $10,000 a month and to lie in the media.You see how much good she did for her tribe.  They were never recognized, and may never be unfortunately.

Shame on you Arlinda

We’re very sad…… but not surprised

Shovel Ready Ceddie had spent $308m and we have nothing and remain a landless tribe. The federal government must be curious.

Shovel Ready Ceddie had spent $308m and we have nothing and remain a landless tribe. The federal government must be curious.

We want Land into Trust.  We need Land into Trust. It blew up today because of a variety of reasons….we have to say that we predicted this. It’s astounding how predictable it all was. Reel Wamps has been saying it for years.

But we never had a strategy to get LIT, because SHOVEL READY CEDDIE never knew how to do it.  He was taken advantage of completely by greedy attorneys and consultants who knew that he knew nothing and they falsely compiled garbage in our LIT application.

Let’s say it up front.  Ceddie is not a Mashpee. Absent are the political roots or family ties to the players of the world. Neither does he have the education, wherewithal, or experience to get this done.He talks a lot and gets the check to pimp us out while his administration provides absolutely no service for the huge salaries.

This situation with the court decision is really bad because we do not have land into trust.  We are back to being a landless tribe. The BIA did this thing knowing full well that it would not withstand legal challenge. Of course our attorney Arlinda Locklear said ” No BIA LIT decision has ever been overturned.  ” Oh yeah? It didn’t have to face a US Supreme Court ruling that redefined the guidelines. What’s she saying now….eh?  She knew too…but she kept taking those damned checks and running her mouth. Now, here we are.

$308,000,000 in debt, no casino …no hopes of a casino and we are a WELFARE TRIBE to boot. Our people without get their groceries from the pantry ( courtesy of the Boston Food Bank ), after the Frye’s take what they want. We get a couple of turkeys and hams each year and we are $308m in debt. The federal government must be very interested in this fact and the fact that our most vital federal programs are shut down.

If the US Supreme Court interprets the law, the BIA has to follow that interpretation.  The lower federal court says the BIA took our land into trust without the authority to do so.

“In light of the Supreme Court’s interpretation of ‘now under Federal jurisdiction’ to mean under Federal jurisdiction in June 1934, the Secretary lacked the authority to acquire land in trust for the Mashpees, as they were not then under Federal jurisdiction,” Young’s ruling stated.

If you go back and read our stories.  We said there was no way to sustain that BIA decision. But what it did do was keep those pay checks going…millions of dollars in salaries and no service

The Mashpee had some pretty mixed feelings when the BIA released their decision less than a year ago.It showed when they did not run to the Council office to cheer less than a year ago.  It was the Fryes and the wannabees trying to build a crowd for the local newspaper that does not know that the people filling the room are all paid staff. 99% are Fryes.

SRC knew LIT wasn’t real.  He was stunned himself.  But the BIA officials wrote some gobbledy gook, took the LIT and then they all retired.They sure did, they retired. That’s interesting isn’t it?

It was false hope for anyone who cared.Bank of America split.  No financing for the casino came, No financing is coming.  But SRC will keep getting a check until Genting decides to stop funding the government.  That’s because we don’t have an economy because SRC was just focused on pretending that we were going to have a casino that is more of a mirage than ever. We are supposed to have a back up.

And what about the Mass Gaming Commission? Bet they’re having buyers remorse, as we said they did from the start.  Who in the hell would believe

Cedric intends to dump his wife Frye Girl Cheryl after the election. He needs the Frye votes.

Cedric intends to dump his wife Frye Girl Cheryl after the election. He needs the Frye votes.

Cedric Cromwell, a computer tech  who worked at Fidelity…indeed. Liar who has  Donald Trumps’ playbook.

SRC is not even a political hack. We venture to say that he has assaulted the Tribe like a man possessed.He has the nerve to run for office again…and the word came to RW today that he plans to divorce his beautiful bride Cheryl Frye after the election to ensure he gets the Fryebal Council vote. Creepy.

Here’s the Taunton Gazette story……more tomorrow

Federal judge sides with Taunton group trying to block tribal casino
A U.S. District Court judge has sided with a group of Taon citizens looking to block the construction of a casino planned in the city by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. The federal government is expected to appeal the decision.

TAUNTON – A U.S. District Court judge has sided with a group of Taunton citizens looking to block the construction of a casino planned in the city by the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. The federal government is expected to appeal the decision.

The attorney representing the residents, Adam Bond, told The Enterprise that Judge William G. Young ruled that the federal government erred when it granted land in trust status for a Native American reservation in Taunton last year.

Federal law allows tribes to open casinos on reservations, and the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe began work on its planned $1 billion project in the spring.

Young ruled that the U.S. Department of Interior’s interpretation of the Indian Reorganization Act, used to validate the land in trust status, goes against a proper reading of the law.
Young cited the 2008 U.S. Supreme Court Carcieri v. Salazar to invalidate the decision to grand land in trust made by secretary of Interior. The Supreme Court decision ruled that the phrase “now under Federal jurisdiction” in the Indian Reorganization Act meant that only tribes federally recognized in 1934, when the U.S. law was passed, were eligible to get land into federal trust.

“In light of the Supreme Court’s interpretation of ‘now under Federal jurisdiction’ to mean under Federal jurisdiction in June 1934, the Secretary lacked the authority to acquire land in trust for the Mashpees, as they were not then under Federal jurisdiction,” Young’s ruling stated.

Tribal Po Po can’t handle a fight…but they have a $700k budget

You know Kevin Frye works for the Mashpee Police Department  and is the Tribal Police Chief.  So he’s on call 24 hrs a day, but he can’t come off duty with MPD to serve the Tribe ….but he still gets $700 a week and then $42 an hour if he dose shows up (looking  like a scared rat). His back up is his cousin Curtis who barely talks and is anything but an enforcer. So we got Scary I & Sooooooooo Scary II.

Kevin works hard for the White people but is missing when the tribe needs him. Even town law enforcement question his loyalty.

Kevin works hard for the White people but is missing when the Tribe needs him. Even town law enforcement question his loyalty. But he’s there to get that check every Friday in a brand new shiny Homeland Security truck. It absolutely Fryebal.

So guess what? At the Pow Wow there was a fight between some young women. Some tribal men stepped in to hold things down, but the problem was that the Falmouth Police (about 20 cops) showed up first.

Ya see, when there’s a call about us, there’s a bunch of cops showing up.

Guess what? The Falmouth cops were looking for Kevin.  Kevin was nowhere to be found.  ON POW WOW Weekend ! The Falmouth police got there a half an hour before Kevin.  They were looking for Kevin to mediate a disturbance that ended up resulting in unnecessary arrests because there was no tribal law enforcement around to tone things down or negotiate.

Even the Falmouth police admitted they were looking for Kevin.  They were looking for Cedric at the tribal dance  that was out of hand last year.  Cedric ducked into his hotel room when the police asked him what he wanted them to do.

We know the tribal hell raisers don’t we? And let’s break it down.  They yell and scream and fight and stop when they get tiered.  But let’s talk about the unspoken rule and responsibility of the Tribal Chairman.  The Tribal Chairman commands respect and stops the madness.

We do not have that.  Glenn Marshall would have been there before the cops were called.  But we have people in charge who are pimping us and tribal cops who are interested in selling us out and getting a check.

The Elder women from the opposing families of the young women would have insisted that they apologize and forgive the bad words.

But when you have people outside the Tribe leading the Tribe, you have chaos.

They are cowards taking money while we don’t even have our pride to hold on to.

Look at Cedric with the faith healer who made him walk again !

See….this is the Shovel Ready Ceddie we don’t know.  His debilitation is all gone.  He can walk because of a faith healer.  This is who is in charge of our Tribe , making over $300,000.00.  Cedric Big Pimpin’

If you can’t play it , look on Cheryl’s  facebook or Kenyetta’s. It is hysterical.  MAYBE KENYETTA IS WORKING ON THAT  $500,000.00. Lay hands on the Asino BABY ! We need Jesus!

Symbolic rhetoric is no defense against the scourge of addiction

Pow wow themes come and go but this years rings hollow and is hurtful.  To talk about fighting our huge addiction issues when the head of the program was just recently arrested for drunk driving in itself is atrocious.  Kimmie Frye, “Sr” was not reprimanded nor was she fired. 

So how do you cure the problem and keep our children from becoming addicted, when the addicted are posing as directors of the programs making addiction the new normal? Disgusting.

17 deaths in 13 months. 17 deaths in 13 months. Proof that the Wicked Wamp 9 are indifferent to a prolific killer of our people. It is so outrageous it’s hard to even talk about.

But this is a Fryebal Council trait. You cannot shame them into doing the right thing.
