The “Mean Travel Queen” has landed…in jail

One thing about Yvonne Frye Avant, she’s consistent.  The Mean Travel Queen has a temper that seems to ignite when someone does unto her, what she did unto them. We’ll tell you what we mean in a minute.

The Mean Travel Queen is a Council member plagued by domestic problems and violence. She has been on the Council over 30 years. She needs to exit.

The Mean Travel Queen is a Council member plagued by domestic problems and violence. She has been on the Council over 30 years. As the longest serving member with a less than stellar record, she needs to exit.

The Saturday incident was another domestic violence occurrence. This time she backed into her husband,hitting him. He called the Mashpee cops. Well damn!

MTQ was at it again, and got herself arrested. And her sisters were frantic about getting her out of the joint. But the Fryes’s couldn’t work that magic. That’s because Yvonne was stuck in jail for the 6 hour cooling off period for domestic violence. Course that’s the White man’s law of the land.  None of that tribal voo doo that Jessie conjures up.

Just over a year ago, Mean Travel Queen broke into a tribal members home looking for her husband. Well the cops were called again and this time she ended up in court. The tribal member did not press charges but the judge said MTQ was not to trespass on the woman’s property ever again.

Now on to how Yvonne is getting what she gave.  The circumstances surrounding her present husband is a lurid tale that played out in Dino’s.  Her current husband was married then, and his wife found out about about the two of them carrying on. Well, she came into Dino’s and whipped Yvonne’s behind quite nicely….in front of the Creator and everyone.

So it’s amazing to know that Yvonne has two outstanding daughters.  It’s incredible.  Talented educated women.  What’s her problem ?

Yvonne had the nerve to send out an email to the Council saying that she would be happy to discuss it at the next meeting.  Well, the Council didn’t discuss her breaking and entering episode even after tribal member David Weeden asked  what the Council was going to do.  You may say David’s got his own stuff goin’ on …yah, but he is not on the Council.

TFL has a seedy record that has not changed since she was elected to the Council or became the First Lady. She has bullied men and women relentlessly. She has destroyed our legacy as a giving, loving people.

TFL has a seedy record that has not changed since she was elected to the Council or became The First Lady. She has purposely ignored our sick people, bullied men and women relentlessly destroying our legacy as a giving, loving people.

On the Council is Cheryl Frye Cromwell, AKA The First Lady.  Tribal members were witnesses to her beating a Pequot woman on her homeland at Foxwoods of all places.  There have been other incidents of scandal in bathrooms and public drunkenness. She has never been reprimanded.

Council woman Winnie Johnson was jailed for beating a pregnant woman and recently jumped a tribal mother of 5 in front of tribal youth she was supposed to be mentoring. Nothing was done about Winnie and she has become the mascot they trot out for the White people.  She recently burst into a screaming rage at the Sunday meeting. Despite the fact that tribal members demanded she be removed,

Winnie Johnson flew into a rage after she was outed on her false campaign promise to give Tribal households $500 a month stipends. She knew that Genting would not allow her to do anything like that. Like all paid Council members, she is pimping us out to their Chines masters.

Winnie Johnson flew into a rage after she was outed on her false campaign promise to give Tribal households $500 a month stipends. She knew that Genting would not allow her to do anything like that. As a member of the Payola Council, she is pimping us out to her Chinese masters.

she was allowed to continue like a lunatic until she was exhausted. No other government would allow these women to continue to serve on their governing body lowering the standards of decency beyond measure.  It is unconscionable and proof that Cedric Cromwell answers to Genting not us.We knew he was a bombast but this proves he’s anything but a leader.

The Tribal Secretary constantly reveals her instability on Facebook and other internet sites.  This confirms the total disregard for Tribal government integrity and worth. This is a reflection of how they feel about us.

Ever notice how your friends outside the tribe say, : “What’s going on with that Council?  Why don’t you guys do something…they’re awful !”  You really can’t say too much.

So we bare responsibility too.  We get what we get.  We allow it.  So it continues.

It’s funny until you really think about how the people who did nothing to build the Nation are tearing us to smithereens. It’s a sad ending to our storied legacy.

SRC, Messy Jessie, Tah Tah, Mean Travel Queen, Raging Mannequin and The First Lady should resign.




Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman is it true that you lie a lot ?

We have a new tribal member who has insisted on having his say on Reel Wamps.He said there are too many old people talkin’ on this website .  It needs a youthful perspective. Our committee voted unanimously in favor of his request based on his sassiness and extensive lineage.He proudly recited his woodland ancestors as Attaquins, Amos’s, Pocknetts, Haynes,  Mingos, Hendricks, Oakleys, Mills and Peters.  Chief Earl Mills named the young Wamp  Quahog Pie and challenged him to keep the old ways.

Quahog Pie is serious bout everything Wampanoag. A lot of adults can't say that.

Quahog Pie stands like a Mashpee man dressed to perfection ready to dance.He is serious about everything Wampanoag. A lot of adults can’t say that.

Quahog Pie talks to the Chairman

” Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman I just read your press release about your Taunton job fair..I have a question. How do you expect  the Genting Asino, Phase I, Super Walmart to employ 2,600 people ? I mean the parking lot only has 2,500 spaces. Well another thing. Our people can’t work in the Asino.  Indians with casinos don’t allow tribal members to work there. Only non tribal members can work there. So that means my dad gets a check right?  What ?  Well  ..Huh? Wait a minute Mr. Chairman, don’t walk away.  I just asked.  Those Brockton people would build a $700 million real casino with a hotel and everything. It’s going to be huge and they say they will employ 1,300 people.  Are you making things up Mr. Chairman?  Are you trying to impress the White people?

Mr Chairman you need some help? You wanna sit down. You seem to be having trouble. Well ah,  I was in the back of the room during the Sunday meeting and The man who handles the money for the tribe…..Yes, Mr. Robbie, he said you didn’t have the money from the Chinese people yet to build the Phase I,  Super Walmart Genting Asino. Well that’s what he said in front of 120 tribal members that’s what he said.  So how do you build a Asino without the money?  No I’m not a smart ass.  I’m just asking.  You know Minnie Ah Hah is my cousin.  Well, she told me to keep asking you questions, no matta what.  She said after about 20 of ’em you might answer one, maybe.  Wow.  She didn’t call you  names. I forgot you have big issues with ladies.  Like that Tah Tah lady.  They say she told on you in front of everybody.  Everybody. They say you didn’t know that the Mashpee women get ya told.

Mr Chairman I saw you come into the Sunday meeting late.  The Reel Wamps people said you weren’t coming, but all of a sudden you showed up. In the email to everyone, you said you had physical therapy? On Sunday Mr. Chairman? You seemed pretty uncomfortable up there talkin’.

Mr Chairman… the Chinese own us? I mean that’s what the Elders say.  So ah,  that’s not good is it? Where you goin’.  I can loan you my grandfather’s walker.  You can go faster.  Maybe next time Mr. Chairman.

The investor doubles down…members still languish

All the showboating in Taunton with the shovels…well that was just that. A show. The investors were back this week  with the spiel about outside financing.  Cedric has enough money to knock the wear house down.  Now even  Phase I, the Super Walmart size Asino with the parking lot, is in question.  Genting has it’s own financial issues so they were telling Shovel Ready to keep looking for underwriting elsewhere, indicating that the projects future is iffy.   And they were serious.

The First Light boondoggle has been a failure do to a lack of interest by financiers, complicated by the LIT lawsuit and the fact that a viable competitor could be a mere  20 miles away. Ya, its real.  But the ground breaking was another dog and pony show designed to disguise the fact that Shovel Ready Ceddie is anything but.

Tribal members,will be voting on the enormous budget, probably  the largest  in Indian Country per capita. They need to ask for the financial model of Phase I.

This whole thing benefits no one but him and the others selling us out.

The tribal  budget package sent to members was missing pages and was the usual unacceptable gobble de gook that a legitimate government would not have the nerve to distribute.  But who are the Mashpee to question anything?  We are shills for SRC, Messy Jessie, Robbie, Tah Tah, The Fist Lady, Mean Travel Queen (Yvonne), Angry Mannequin (Winnie) and Eatin’ off the White Man’s Plate or Me & My Fake GED (Bobby (Frye) Foster).

Cedric during the chaotic election with cousin Guy (red hat) savoring their illegal victory.

Cedric during the chaotic election with cousin Guy (red hat) savoring their illegal victory.

But the illegality of the process is embedded in one of the budget line items that gives Guy Cash a $68 k a year salary as the Medicine Man “In Absentia.”  This was Tah Tah’s big idea you will recall, but according to sources, it was never voted on.  And how do we verify without the minutes? Ridiculous indeed. This obsession with paying Guy Cash dates back to when Cedric stole the election and during that illegal take over prior to…he brought Guy and Bunny Lopez, the former Chief( who had resigned) in to vote.  Traditional leaders do not vote nor are they paid….but it was the beginning of the hostile take over that has brought us to this humiliating place.Guy and the Chief are nothing more than pitiful props.  Guy has been rumored to be seriously ill for nearly a decade.  We have many sick Tribal members who have been totally ignored, by the First Lady at that ! If the tribe wants to help him, they should establish a fund.

By the way, Shovel Ready was there for the White people in Taunton, but he will be absent from today’s meeting.

The insensitivity and greed is all too much right now..  Many were tricked into believing in  Cedric’s false promise.  In reality many of us are busy trying to survive in the midst of a bloated government controlled by the Fryebal Council bent on taking the last loaf of stale bread left in the pantry.

Cromwell’s fraud just keeps on giving! To him.

Cedric Cromwell is the poster boy for tribes that are frequently taken over by urban outsiders who are ignorant of tribal tradition and driven by greed.

Cedric Cromwell is the poster boy for tribes that are frequently taken over by urban outsiders who are ignorant of tribal tradition and driven by greed.

The latest narcissistic self aggrandizement of Cedric Cromwell was published in today’s newspaper under the guise of a story about the historic ” ground breaking ” for the Genting casino in majestic Taunton.  It was a totally fascinating response to our previous post.  Fascinating .

It was all about Cedric’s personal struggle to bring us to this point in our history. It was all about him and his identity issues and disconnect with reality. But a big booger that discredited the whole PR piece was that he never said a word about how or when the Tribal members would benefit.

Shovel Ready Ceddie got his name because of his 7 years of false promises to break ground

Photo opt for Housing. Not another word for a badly needed serve, that's pid for by the federal government no less. Who knows what happened to the money.

breaking for a  Housing development 3 years ago.  Then we didn’t  have land in trust so it would have been public low income housing and not restricted to Tribal members. Now that the land has supposedly gone into trust,  you don’t hear a peep about any progress on critical housing needs that would help our people living in the woods, in broken down motels  and out of dumpsters.Let’s not forget the bungling incompetence and nepotism of tribal housing that lost us the important 184 federal program for first time Native American home buyers.  But of course for the few years it was operational, the Frye’s got 2/3’s of the homes. Joanne Frye,  recently elected to lead Tribal Elders, is the queen of foreclosures and  who is one of the Fye’s who got a house.

The sign for the housing project. Still there, nothing built.

The sign for the housing project. Still there, nothing built.

You see Ceddie is not interested in positively impacting tribal members.  That’s not Ceddie’s problem.  He works for Genting, unlike Taunton Mayor Tom Hoye, who works for his citizenry. Hoye did a little tap dance around how messy the casino  process has been and you you can imagine he would have been out on his ear if he conducted himself or did business like the embattled Mashpee Chairman.  Also, why should Hoye worry?  Taunton gets paid no matter what. His beleaguered town gets new roads and infrastructure desperately needed.

Cedric’s early ineptness cost us $3.4 million ( non refundable)  in  2010 when he cut an untenable deal with the equally as foolish Mayor of Fall River for the purchase of land already  designated for use  for a bio tech lab by state.

Here’s an excerpt from the 2011 December edition of  Boston Magazine about Cromwell’s total ineptitude .

In any case, Cromwell started snooping around Fall River. Middleborough

Cedric frittered away $3.4 m in Fall River. Mayor Flanagan bolted from the deal when it was clear that the state had designated the land for something else.

Cedric frittered away $3.4 m in Fall River in 2010. Mayor Flanagan bolted from the deal when it was clear that the state had designated the land for something else. Cedric’s incompetence has cost us dearly.

officials claim he kept stringing them along even as he was scouting other locations, and when the Mashpee finally decided in May 2010 to shack up with Fall River instead, Middleborough officials claim they heard about it on the news. The $250,000 payments stopped and, not surprisingly, the bitterness remains: Middleborough selectman Allin Frawley says he plans to push his fellow selectmen to file a lawsuit the second the Mashpee strike a deal with some other place.

The Fall River deal fell apart in just five months, after a deed restriction on the proposed site of the casino and a lawsuit brought by a group of locals proved too much to overcome. So just months from the July 31 deadline, the tribe still doesn’t seem to have found a home for its casino. Cromwell will say only that he’s looking into sites across the area.

Back to the public relations push back and press release publication. SRC failed  to deliver to his constituents.  He was boasting to the White people in Taunton.  He said the Tribe was spending $1,000,000,000 in Taunton. Do you think that Mayor Hoye would be bragging about giving the Mashpee Wampanoag a billion dollars and say nothing of benefits to his people?  Course not.  Cedric is a damned fool.

WHAT ABOUT US ? When do we get anything? No answer

Here was one of his quotes in the  article….a direct response to our previous post.

“First Light Resort & Casino is happening, oh my god, for ancestors who paved the way to be able to stand here on our sovereign land,” Cromwell said. “I’m so blessed to be a Mashpee Wampanoag, I’m so blessed to be the tribal chairman to help lead our people to victory. I’m so blessed to be the tribal chairman chosen by our people to write our history instead of his story.”

Taunton electeds turned out...why not ? They getting paid and we get the ham and turkey? Meanwhile Cedric does Indian Speak and clowns about the ancestors.

Taunton electeds turned out…why not ? They are getting paid and we get the ham and turkey. Meanwhile, Cedric does Indian Speak and clowns about the ancestors.

Cedric cannot talk about our ancestors, because he does not know any of them. He never lived among any of them.  He never came to Mashpee every weekend with his mother because she did not come down.Everyone knows that. He did not even know about his own grandmother which is indicting.  Mashpee know about their grandmother, grandfather, great grandmother and grandfather, great aunts uncles and on and on. It is cherished. We can look on our lineage chart and tell stories about the old ones.  It is our heritage.  We tell stories about them and boast of family fame.  We also know about  everyone elses too….going back 4 generations.We know the nick names and the origin.  Of course they are slightly embellished sometimes.  As a courtesy, we will turn our heads and smile, but that is our right.   Cedric can’t say that. He knows nothing.

In our post, we talked about the stolen election that brought him to power. We talked about his getting on the roll in 2006 ( he did not know what the roll was) we talked about his phony  Indian status that is humiliating to us. All of these sad characteristics are proof that Cedric Cromwell is not worthy.

He never said a word about how any of this is helping us.  Not a word.

Showing off for the White people.

All those who are with Cedric Cromwell  cannot look us in the face.  It’s too much.

Phase 1….the parking lot and the Super Walmart size Asino food court with a parking lot would be finished in 2017.? Right…The rest in 2020.  What do you think they will do in Brockton ? They will be rolling if they get a license. The only thing for sure for the Mashpee is that Cedric keeps getting a check.

Meanwhile, Genting can only afford to invest $125 m in the Phase 1 Asino ( 80,000 square foot Super Walmart) because that’s all Genting will do and if the land in trust is rejected by the court, well, Genting is not at a total loss.

But the tribe ends up with $800 m in debt and absolutely no dividends.

So the phony newspaper  pictures of the casino continue the disingenuous campaign . And we’re still waiting for the 80,000 square foot slot dump, food court, parking lot rendering.

We do know one thing, Cedric his wife Cheryl, Messy Jessy, Tah Tah, Robbie, Yvonne, Winnie, Bobbie, and a whole bunch a Fryes are gonna get paid every Friday…and we are not….for years.  That means for 80 % of our people….the future is dark, despite what the REAL Mashpee did to get us recognized.

Cedric is ill, and is not capable of leading us out of the mess he created.

Cedric Cromwell should resign.

Stating the obvious….Cedric Cromwell must resign

We all know that the Tribal Council does nothing for the millions they get paid.  But they confirm it by not holding the constitutionally required council meetings.  At one point recently the council failed to meet 6

 This damned blasphemy alone is grounds for Ceddie's ouster. Like this head dress, everything was done wrong by "Play Play Indian." We can't get a break...

This damned blasphemy alone is grounds for Ceddie’s ouster. Like this head dress, everything was done wrong by “Play Play Indian.” We can’t get a break…

times in a row.  But who’s counting? Surely not Tah Tah.  She’s too busy looking for sympathy on Facebook for ” all the abuse she takes from Cedric.” That sandal continues to unravel along with others involving the philandering chairman.

Most recently they have cancelled another 4 meetings in a row for lack of a quorum. Tell you what, those numbskulls can find a quorum when they get ready to borrow more money to pay themselves and their GED-less, license-less, felony ridden Fryes on the payroll. And get this, they were trying to get more of their relatives hired  to work for contractors and they were rejected because none of them have licenses or a GEDs. So much for our education program eh ?  Course we have several Council members and top administrators driving around without licenses and everyone in the Tribe knows who they are.

Messy Jessie, who does nothing but make fools of us in public, continues to hire her children and repeat offenders as assistants. She doesn’t do a damned thing but run her mouth about stuff she knows nothing about. Now she’s shifting ICWA cases to the tribal court.  These are our weakest members who cannot defend themselves or their children.  So she uses them as guinea pigs because of that weakness.  Our Tribal Court is in no way capable of handling these sensitive issues for our most vulnerable members and families.THE BARNSTABLE COURT SHOULD NOT BEND TO THIS ATROCITY BECAUSE THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND INDIAN LAW.  There is no public defender to represent these members but Messy is trying to validate the Tribal Court at the expense of our weakest people.  She’s begging for a lawsuit.

Back to the assistants. So why does she need assistants? Recently, one of these “assistants” was fired, remarkably, for doing  drugs in the bathroom. Now, its pretty obvious that a person with drug issues is

Messy Jessie, the Sarah Palin of the MWT, is in her glory with all eyes on her at the Mass Gaming Commission. Tribal members cringe. She was elected by the casino stalkers she put on the roll not considered legitimate members.

Ceddie prays for her to stop. But Messy Jessie, the Sarah Palin of the MWT, is in her glory with all eyes on her at the Mass Gaming Commission meeting as Tribal members cringe. She was elected by the casino stalkers she put on the roll who are not considered legitimate members.

going to be known.  Everyone in the tribe knew this person has serious problems.  But to top it off, the head of the substance abuse program was a witness to it day in day out and ….well? That’s proof that the complaints about that director are true and real. Tribal members say the person heading this critical tribal program…has no business holding the position.   She has no experience according to those who would know, and she does not know the tribal members, which is essential to running a program that sensitive. Ceddie and Jessie do not give a damn about helping our tribal members in crisis.

Cedric and Messy Jessie continue to display gross negligence in their duties as

CEddie and Messy surrounded by Fryes..The Deaconess , Francie (Frye) cooing at her embattled boss.

Ceddie and Messy surrounded by Fryes..”The Deaconess” (right), Francie (Frye), cooing for her embattled boss.

the supposed leaders of our Tribe. While they may not be Fryes, the Fryes occupy 90% the tribal jobs and control Ceddie and Messy. All other workers are ingratiated because they don’t know any better or are desperate for work.

Tribal members have yet to figure out that they can end the nightmare and restore the tribe by simply turning out  to vote. There are more Peters, Hendricks,Oakleys Hicks, Pocknetts, Mills, Newcombs and yes, Tobeys than Fryes.

And we should go back to a hand written ballot.  Cedric Cromwell  has been programing the results of those  voting machines right under our noses and laughing all the way to the bank with millions in pay checks. The voting machines that we use are designed to accommodate tens of thousands of voters, not 600-800 voters.  It is better to do a hand count of written ballots in front of everyone than rely on Cedric and his peeps. They prey on the fact that members don’t know what to look for with the electronic voting machines so you have these voting monitors lead by Pauline Peters, sitting out in front of the members waiting for the vote tally from the Administration that has it all rigged up nicely on a separate  SD card. And Navajo Joe stands guard.


The worst part of all is that Ceddie and Jessie are both Tobeys  (and so is Robbie)  and they never did a thing for their own family.  The Fryes played them like loaded dice. The Tobeys got screwed royally by their own people at the very top.

But one more thing.  Before the Fryebal Council got this $200 m, they got an $8 m loan to run the Tribe wink wink..  Cedric only got his hands on $3m because the other $5m was interest to Genting.

Just living the life fantastic.

Cedric and Jessie must resign.

Hey! We just borrowed another $200 million

Well, well, well.  Another $200 million added to the tribal debt that in no way benefits the tribal members and their families who have to repay it. Of course Shovel Ready and his Fryebal Council get paid every week without fail now that Genting is forced to underwrite the Asino.

One interesting thing happened.  The investors who helped us get recognized are getting paid $60 or $70 m out of that huge pot of money.  That is the honorable thing to do in light of the fact that now we can only dream of the easy life we would have had if we stuck with these folks.

We had 535 acres of beautiful historic land in Middleboro that was actually home to one of our ancestral villages.  Yes. And it cost us $6 m.  As opposed to the 5 disconnected lots in Taunton that cost $56 m that no sane person  would buy…..but rank amateur Cedric Cromwell and his band of thieves.  

Let’s dream for a minute of a casino in Middleboro and what our lives would be like if we stuck with the people got us to the table in the first place.  We would have been a huge resort casino and hotel…already built.  We would be in a town where the people really wanted us and a facility that was quality.

Those investors would have built the casino, charged us 6% interest and taken payments over about 10 years. Course there was also a the best deal of all.  Initially, Tribal members over 18 would have received about $24,000 a year.  Of course that allotment would increase.  But there was also an economic development plan in the making that would have kicked in so we would fulfill our self determination.

Course all that dreamy stuff evaporated when Shovel Ready Ceddie

Cedric Cromwell and his tag team partner former Treasurer Mark Harding on the quest for money & power did scores of bad deals that cost the Tribe dearly

Chairman Cedric Cromwell who officially became a tribal member in 2006 and his tag team partner also an outsider,  former Treasurer Mark Harding on their quest for money & power did scores of bad deals that continue to cost the Tribe dearly.

stole the election in 2009.  They spent up the nearly million dollar surplus and tried to hustle the old investors by not signing  a new agreement. They kicked the old investors to the curb and then Mark Harding brought Genting into our lives. 17% interest, bad deals, lawyers and  incompetent consultants who scammed us for 7 years.

And gave us over $400 million in debt……all for the big doughnut.

The Brockton Casino...huge with 1,300 jobs and that ain't no Hub Bub

The Brockton Casino…huge with 1,300 jobs and that ain’t no Hub Bub

So the big groundbreaking is near….yes this fabulous Phase I Asino is the size of a Super Walmart (80,000 square feet) costing around $125 m.  Right.  Expected to compete with the Brockton resort casino that will run around $700 m….no phases, no  jibber jabber.

We have really fallen to a dark sad place under this administration.

Middleboro looks like Paradise Lost right about now.


Bad form and bull- – – –

Mass Gaming wants a resort casino that makes money not a slot dump.

Mass Gaming wants a resort casino that makes money not a slot dump.

It’s hard to keep up….but we’re going to take  a stab at it

First, the Tribe hosted the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.  It was a courtesy meeting clearly because  the Tribe has so many problems and is incapable of meeting the state compact  or the Indian Gaming Commission requirements. So the state is forced to look elsewhere for a viable gaming entity because what Cedric Cromwell rolled out was totally unacceptable. The state had to be courteous.  What the mainstream media describes as a

“hard sell” by Shovel Ready Ceddie, seemed disjointed and meaningless. Genting is literally a  predatory lender for Native Tribes….at least the Pequots and Seneca members got paid for a while.  Us…it’s turkey and ham while Fryes reap the benefits of salaries (with no education) they would never earn on the outside.  It’s a joke.

What was presented was a ragity itty bitty slot dump essentially with parking lot…in majestic Taunton. The Brockton casino competitors, who profer the safe bet is issuing them a casino license, say the lawsuit makes Ceddie’s Asino a huge risk. So true, but much more is at stake and the MGC knows the deal with Ceddie is a no go….. we’ll get to that later.

Kevin Frye, SRC, nd Guy Cash, the alleged medicine man prays before the meeting. Guy's committment to tribal ministry is summed up by his recent demand for $68K a year.

Mashpee cop and tribal secuirty Kevin Frye, SRC, and Guy Cash SRC cousin, the alleged medicine man pray at the meeting. Guy’s tribal ministry is summed up by his recent demand for $68K a year. “Mr Absent” also looks like he’s goin’ bowling or something. Tribal members are resigned to being without a MM …he’s never ever around and he’s pretty weird.

Back to the embarrassing babble at this meeting.The Genting presenter ( who was very young and all over the place) was actually bragging about their history with the Pequots and Senecas who have horror stories concerning sky high interest rates and gangster moves.  Newspaper stories recount the Chinese bursting into a Seneca tribal council meetings brandishing guns demanding payments. Unlike Shovel Ready Ceddie, the Senecas said no deal. SRC is on the payroll and he could care less about some casino. Or taking care of constituents.

This so called ” First Light Casino” has had $25m in architectural re-dos over the

last 5 years. What corporate executive would allow that kind of expenditure on a casino that will barley materialize?  That was the beginning and the most obvious part of the laundering scam.

But let’s look at the big picture.  Everyone is in this game for the money.  The state wants all it can get and so does Shovel Ready Ceddie.

Here’s the difference.  The MGC is cutting the best deal for of he people of the Commonwealth.  SRC, on the other hand has

The Gaming Commission was probably praying for us in a big way.

never, delivered for “The Tribe.” There is no pay for the tribal members because the Asino will go in the hole some $25 – $45 million a year  for 10 -11 years.  Why would the state be a part of a scam and the likelihood of the BIA Land in Trust  decision  being overturned (because it didn’t follow the US Supreme Court criteria to take the action)? The Tribe is not in the picture at all because there’s no payment for the membership.  There’s no profit for anyone but Genting and the state makes the interest on whatever the No Light Asino scrounges up from the poor devils who catch the bus to play the slots in majestic Taunton. The “Phase” is for a place that is half the size of Twin Rivers with landscaping that amounts to a parking lot.  Nothing like the spandangle in those phony pictures. For some reason they never show you all these “Phases.”  Clearly Phases are not  defined as a resort casino in the compact. And the sovereignty route is still incomplete with the IGC.

So we’re right back to the bull—- of who wants to be bothered with it? Clearly the banks and other financiers are not interested. So Genting is in to recoup something, anything. After all, we have no economic development strategy because it’s about SRC.

If SRC puts up an ice cream parlor on the over priced property…why would he care? The guy who don’t get no respect is pulling down about $20K  a month based on our information from the fiance department.  As long as Genting keeps fronting Cedric’s salary, why would he care? Genting has it’s own washing machine..

Again rambling insults and bad humor  before the Mass Gaming Commission was nothing more that Shovel Ready’s  bipolar issues on display. The audience was beleaguered council members and their Fryebal Council relatives. Council employees, who were on paid vacation to applaud on que.The tribal Indians were no were around.  And the Commission didn’t seem real interested in the presentation anyway. It was clear that Jessie ( who stopped in the middle of her bizarre history lesson about the Wampanoag people) realized nobody was listening and abruptly sat down.  It was like being in a tribal meeting when someone tells her to ” stop lyin’ and sit down.”

The real story is hidden away from the Commission because if they saw the real financials and the huge losses the casino will take over a ten year period they would be astounded. It is a crime for sure.

So Shovel Ready finally lives up to his namesake 7 years later.

This bogus casino, if it ever materializes, is a payday for SRC. More to come people.

For the love of God…can you just stop embarrassing us

This is horrific indeed.  For Cedric and Jessie to prostrate themselves before the Mass Gaming Commission as though they really represent us. It is humiliating.  For Jessie Baird to discuss this itty bitty casino like it it is a treasure for ” our children she said, “they are doing this for our children.”   It is pathetic.  We will not  be compensated in any way  until 2026.  The compact does not say Phases  it says $500 m resort casino.  They do not have the money to build it and they will never finish it. Cedric is one hell of a liar.

Watch for yourself


What’s it gonna be ?

So we are going it alone, taking the “Sovereignty” route to get this little tiny casino.

No no. Cedric threatens the Massachusetts Gaming Commission because it could issue a license to a reliable gaming entity

Cedric says the Massachusetts Gaming Commission isn’t following the Compact.

Howard Cooper, Cedric’s lawyer says that the Tribe’s going to sue the state if they issue a license to the Brockton group who are reliable and truly shovel ready.

So if the Massachusetts Gaming Commission issues the license to the Brockton Group, the tribal casino could never compete with the real resort  casino…if it’s ever built. IF IF IF is the operative word because the Land in Trust is so shady and the lawsuits are hovering over the No Light ittty bitty casino.

Now Cedric’s trying to play nice with the gaming commission and host their meeting at the tribal headquarters..  Unless some American financier falls out of the sky Cedric has a huge problem fronting this project because the money is not there.

So you’re going to use the foreign investor that the Indian gaming law was established to stop exploiting Indians, to finance your casino.  And you’re ultimately competing against one of the top gaming entities in the world, that has a great location while yours is crap. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

And you’re paying over $25K s month for a bunch of PR hacks to get the paper to re print your press releases about breaking ground.

Cousins indeed. Jessie plans to run against Cedric for chairman, and there's another planning to get it.. Knowing Cedric, he'll be hobbling around on crutches to keep getting a check. But he ain't no Franklin Roosevelt.

Jesus Cedric. Are you breaking ground with Winnie’s broken down back hoe or what?   Desperation is a terrible thing. In a matter of days we’ll be able to tell the real story of our demise.

Cedric should resign and take his cousin Jessie with him. Oh and her….she’s over in Barnstable court tinkering and threatening the state with demands for the confidential court records of our kids..  Jessie Baird screwed up the rolls can you imagine that sensitive ICWA information all over the Cape.  Jessie should  in no way be involved in anything legal or confidential. She is dangerous and grossly incompetent.
