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 or 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.

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 Taunton and 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 Taunton/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.

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
