A hurtful place….in the Empire

Well….4 more Frye’s have been added to the Empire.  The Empire has 4 more Fryes added to their 80 percent domination.  Kevin Frye who has been on the Mashpee Police department was demoted for reasons unknown along with his cousin Curtis Frye Jr., will be the tribal policeman.  Let’s talk about this a little bit.  Neither one of them are in very good shape.

Patty Oakley could back hand either one and keep goin’. Yes, and there are two more Frye’s,  daughters, sons and cousins of other Empire dwellers making huge salaries with barely a high school education and they are not even trying to go to CCCC.  Why should they?  Course when everything falls apart they will wish they got a formal education instead of stealing from their own family members and cousins. That is if they have any conscience at all.

We have much more to discuss  tomorrow…it’s too much for tonight.


Say it ain’t so Aaron

Aaron wants back in the power structure and will do whatever he has to to get there.

Aaron Tobey wants back in and he really pulled a shrewd trick to get there.  The former Vice Chairman joined others and worked hard to get over 140 signatures on a petition ( he loves petitions) condemning the 1.3 million dollars in raises that will be given to officers and paid council members.

Another point of interest…Aaron mailed out the indicting flyer pictures, salaries and all as his campaign material, pretty much discrediting the whole effort.

Well there was the great special

The flyer Aaron co-opted as campaign material to get a job from Cedric.

meeting to address this latest outrage and certain Elders were thrown out and others asked questions and raised hell. As Reel Wamps said prior to the meeting there would be no answers, nothing would happen and nothing did.

Back to Aaron.  He had a lot to say about the abuse of tribal members at the hands of a heartless council.  He and his buddy Cedric went at it hard.  It was as though Aaron had amnesia and forgot all the damage he did to tribal laws pretending to be judge and jury etc etc.  Aaron was part of the destruction of tribal law.  He was part of the very undoing of the fabric of the tribe, creating the phony Elders, forcing the real ones out and a host of other outrageous political hacking that in the end proved his undoing.

But now, Aaron could be victorious again.  Rumor has it that Aaron’s “advocacy” as he calls it, may have brought him results.  He may have badgered Cedric into giving him a cushy job on the Gaming Authority reviewing contracts. If its true, Aaron used the raise issue to benefit himself not the tribe.

Aaron will be Aaron after all.  Like Cedric, they are outsiders who rob you blind and without regret.


Land in Trust at any “Cost” has consequences

It’s a good idea to read stories by Marc Larocque in the the Taunton Gazette. Larocque is a serious reporter who thoroughly researches his stories. He also substantiates why certain things will happen and why the worst is yet to come concerning the casino. He actually interviews people who know and understand Indian law.  He is a straight shooter and  he does more than print a press release and make fun of tribal members futile attempts to fight the corrupt Cromwell regime.  We have to give him credit for telling the whole story and what to expect.

Since we’re honest at Reel Wamps we have to admit that Larocque has confirmed every aspect of our speculation concerning the flimsy LIT decision, the state’s continued skepticism about the Arkana (tribal) casino while it considers issuing a commercial license and lawsuits that are bound to delay it by 3-4 years. Read the whole story from November 5: Below is a excerpt.


Brockton casino developers say Taunton casino won’t happen

“The Brockton casino proposal is the only remaining commercial license applicant pursuing a license provided to the southeastern region by the state’s gaming law. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission expects to make a decision on whether to issue a commercial license to Brockton by March. Tribal casinos are given preferential treatment under the Massachusetts law, but the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s proposal is likely to face challenges in court over the legitimacy of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s decision to award land in trust to the tribe for its project site in Taunton.

Mass Gaming and Entertainment presented a lawyer who specializes in Indian law and litigation, who claimed that the Department of Interior’s decision is “seriously flawed,” based on an “unprecedented” interpretation of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 and a disregard for historical evidence that is critical to understanding the law.

David Tennant, a partner at the firm Nixon Peabody, said that several tribes have been unsuccessful in their efforts to petition Congress to change the precedent setting Carcieri v. Salazar decision issued by the Supreme Court in 2009, which held that a decision to grant land into trust hinges on whether the tribe was under federal jurisdiction in 1934 when the IRA became law. ”

Again, the only beneficiaries are Shovel Ready Ceddie and his gang.  They get paid more than city commissioners serving millions of people.  There is no profit to be seen from that casino (if it’s built) for 11 years.

Mashpee Wampanoag leader Eben Queppish pulled our paperwork together in 1933, but it was never filed. Maybe he knew who would be in charge.

Also, a group of tribal members are headed back to federal court to sue  the Bureau for reparations. Other tribes recently got a big fat check, and have already set the precedent  After all we were under federal jurisdiction they just forgot our benefits for 104 years right Kevin Washburn.? Oh ya they completely forgot our roll numbers too right?Where’s that top notch Indian lawyer Arlinda Locklear? Trying to protect that bullet proof LIT decision no doubt. Lots missing all the way around.
