A delay…sure

The Cromwell administration got the bad news they knew was coming.  The BIA did not redo their justification for taking the Taunton and Mashpee lands into trust.  The Bureau said it was not going to do it.  BIA Secretary Ryan Zinke just did not put it in writing….allowing Ceddie Lou to buy more time and spin the bad news as a delay. The court must have the decision  in writing.  It’s not a delay.  How do you have a delay when the court set the deadliine for June 19? It’s a stalling tactic. What was the alternative proof that we were under federal juristiction?

It was so bad the administration plans another trip to DC to “sit with”  Secretary Zinke.  This Native Hater just fired all the top Native administrators at the Bureau. You think this guy wants to ” sit ” with Indians? Like all the Trumpsters, he was put in place to destroy the agency.

Cedric and side kick  Jessie have botched LIT from the beginning.  Leadership is not part of their DNA.

So tonight,Ceddie’s crew of advisors and cronies started talking about appeals on section 2, or going the congressional route. Does that sound like a delay to you? And those efforts are virtually impossible.

Besides if it were good news.  Ceddie would have been on every news venue that would take him, despite the fact that the Taunton people would have sued again and won again.

How about we shoud have been working the Congress ( with other tribes) 7 years ago on a two track strategy that included a Plan B.  Plan B would be an economic development plan for the Tribe.

The only strategy ever in play was Cedric’s paycheck and that of the paid Council that got paid exorbitant salaries to do nothing.

Last September, the Tribe got $32 million from Genting.  $14 million in interest comes off the top. $14 million !  The last drawdown was for this month. It was $3 million  and of that, $2m goes to bills 60 days in arrears.

Out of money and options the next step is to fire employees, all but those who work in the federal programs that actually do something like health and dental.  There are at least 20 people who do nothing with no legitimacy but the Frye name. It’s a time where being a Frye is a liability.

And good ole Jessie.  She never stops trying to get that elusive respect.  More about her tomorrow.
