Are you freakin’ kidding ?

VisionTribal members received this ridiculous card in the mail.  It is inviting them to participate in some VISION quest to share ideas about tribal economic development.  Funny, Reel Wamps has been harping and “ranting” (according to Yvonne Frye Avant) for years about the lack of a strategy to put our people to work utilizing our own resources and heritage. And most recently we said that the so called plan for the Genting casino, that is “In Our Name Only” lacks an Economic Development Plan according to the laws of Indian Gaming….now all of a sudden they want to engage tribal members in coming up with a plan?

Are you kidding or what? Reel Wamps questioned the lack of a plan in the previous post a week ago. Besides they’ll have all those overpaid, over billing Boston lawyers and Navajo Joe and Arlinda Arlinda the Really Big Spender throw something together while pretending to solicit imput from whoever wants to run their mouth to them.

We have spent upwards of $70m dollars on salaries for council members and leadership who are blatantly corrupt…lawyers and consultants who have over billed and gouged us under the watchful eyes of Shovel Ready Ceddie.  And council members who are merciless in their greed.

We have a food pantry courtesy of the Boston Food Bank and a paid council getting millions.


Ceddie was sloppy drunk at the staff Christmas party last Friday….You know it was at a fancy hotel.It damn sure wasn’t Sea Mist.  We have to say something is going on because Running Bear ( we still don’t know how he got that name…probably made up when he bought the turquoise bolo that has become a growth on his neck)  is not seen drunk in public. Just keeps mumbling ” Malfeasance misfeasance….”

Stick to golf girl.

The MWT has been named Public Relations Nightmare of the Year because it has an army of hacks who just collect a check and dribble out press releases about minimal events that are rewritten by lazy reporters. Trish Keliinui has been back on a job created just for her  a few months ago...doing who knows what. She just has to belong…Little Miss Needy.  It isn’t like she needs the money or anything. Another $55k for her to sashay all around   Sean Gonsalves works for Regan PR and is our spokesman because half the time no one wants to answer questions…especially Running Bear. Regan makes $15k a month and probably cranks maybe 2-3 releases a month. Course when we have tribal members raging at Sea Mist they spring into action with condescending lecturers about behavior. That torturous Mittark has filled up more trash cans and is a complete mess …the paper is so expensive it’s not even good herring wrapper. Ceddie does a dissertation every edition that is 2 pages long and very poorly written.  Alot  of propaganda and very few tribal members in it. Lot of casino stalkers.  When the flaky BIA LIT decision came…the only pictures in the Mittark were of the council, and the Fryes because no one was celebrating.

Going off like a whirlybird. Dancing and documentaries ain't your thing.

And finally there’s Paula Peters who has reemerged as Martin Scorsese with that silly homemade video Mashpee 9, featuring Brian Weeden running reenacting a Wampanoag messenger. When she tried to show it to the Elders, Bernadine told her to “Turn that off…we don’t want to watch that.” It’s so bad, yet Paula has the nerve to try to raise $60k for it.  You may recall that Brian can’t seem to outgrow the Tribal Youth organization and keeps hanging on as a consultant, chairman, adviser and so it goes:

I’ll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up 

Why should I grow up?

Why should I grow up?

Not me,
Not I,
Not me!
So there!

mis·fea·sance — a transgression, especially the wrongful exercise of lawful authority.


  1. wrongdoing, especially by a public official.
We have to remind people that misfeasance and malfeasance are preeminent in the tribal government.  Reel Wamps was astounded that the Cromwell Administration is struggling to finance this casino and is trying to beg, bond and borrow money to do it, which is unheard of.  Genting is not going foot the bill for everything.  Just the salaries of this corrupt government.

You realize that these people keep paying themselves huge salaries and deliver no tangible services to the tribe, which is very suspicious and is at the top of

“misfeasance/malfeasance” criteria.  Believe it or not, you cannot get paid and fail to provide service to constituents. Not even in a so called nation within a nation without the completion of LIT. Also our tribal government takes federal funds and blatantly misappropriates money to family members. Moreover they hire people who are do not meet job descriptions, lie about their college education, have been fired from WIA and rehired making $87,000 in salary and benefits.  Right.  Then the person who replaced that one at WIA has a full time assistant and between the two of them make $116,000 a year to manage a $40,000 WIA grant.
All smiles at the Ball. Wen Natives rumbled, ran the White people outta the hotel and cops tazed, Ceddie hid in his room. Leadership is too much tor him.

More ridiculous is that as the tribe gets closer to the $250 m cap, borrowing up a storm.. they still cannot afford to pay the $60 m owed to the old investors who helped with recognition. That’s a very critical part of the Compact with the state of Massachusetts because they have to pay it or cannot get the license.

The more absurd deal is the fact that Cedric has paid $56m for 150 acres of patchwork land in Majestic Taunton. $10M of it is not deductible or refundable and was paid TO HOLD LAND YOU CANNOT GIVE AWAY! Smells funky to us…very funky indeed. Get the air freshener.
Cedric and his brain trust could have saved $50m and bought the 536 contiguous acres in Middleboro for $6m which is home to one of our ancient villages and truly our homeland.  We still don’t know what our historic ties to Taunton are…we do know that our people were not that far north…but you know what happens when you’re overpaying for stuff don’t you?

There’s another red flag flying over the proposal submitted to  the National Indian Gaming Commission. It lacks a tribal economic development plan.  The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act requires that gaming tribes have an economic development plan as the backup to ensure sustainability. Casinos don’t last long and it makes sense. They had to resubmit the plan for finance problems.  Now its just siting there.  We are one of the few tribes

with a homeland that has historic sites, fishing and hunting and a vigorous  tourist trade that can provide us a good quality of life. Cedric never cared about our future, just kept taking the checks, imitating Indians and embarrassing us in Indian Country.

Tribal members filing the reparations lawsuit say they plan to include money lost under the Cromwell administration’s 6 year tenure.  That would mean at least $6m-$7m for the loss of grant dollars, housing and other revenues that were shut down or disappeared because of gross incompetence and nepotism.
Of course that’s only if the flaky LIT decision survives.

The budget is $20m. $5m for the infamous slush fund better known as the Gaming Commission...managed by dope dealers who say they don’t

Phillp said he didn’t know nothing about those straws or the dope in his behind.

know about the heroine attached to a straw in their behinds.  Commissioners who are cops, tribal council officers and commission staff (habitual offender) caught in compromising situations in Las Vegas.  No criminals allowed on a gaming commission according to  IGRA.  But the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Crew has its own rules.  The other $15m is for the tribe.  Yes they have the nerve to say that they need that much money to spend on about 300

families in Mashpee and surrounding towns on the Cape.  So you do the math.

For all that money you get some tacky parties a ham and some turkeys.

That’s why misfeasance and malfeasance is against the law.
