Can Barack Hussein Obama save his Presidency?

Posted in America's with tags , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2010 by buffalohair

My answer to this trillion dollar question is yes he can, but there are some deep changes that must talk place in order to win back the hearts of this nation. The very first thing he must do is fire all his advisors and say nyet to the globalization scam. It is more than clear his handlers mistook the pulse of this nation by pushing the most radically unconstitutional agenda in US history. Bordering on treason, Barack’s presidency was wracked with unconstitutional, if not criminal, objectives. Climategate was one of them. The Healthcare initiative was only a smoke screen since it only involved several hundred billion bucks. Trillions were going out the back door while we argued over pennies in comparison.

Like an onion investigators within the United Nations itself are discovering volumes of bogus, inaccurate and fabricated data that has plunged nations into financial chaos. Don’t forget all the e-mails by crooked scientists who deliberately misled the public. California was a microcosm of what all was wrong with the once energetic call to environmental arms. It was all an elaborate lie founded of politically motivated scientists who sold their credibility to the highest bidder. Arnold Schwarzenegger chose to destroy California’s economy by ignoring the fact the scientist who drafted the “war on diesels” via the California Air Resources Board was a fraud and a liar with a mail order college degree. Rather, Arnie went forward with his campaign of destruction and destroyed millions of jobs and bankrupted California knowing the facts about this clown. Arnold had a second agenda since he was banking on Mexico, a future deep water port and NAFTA. The influx of “exempt” foreign trucks unencumbered by US restrictions was also on his agenda. Arnold betrayed California.

Sadly Barack Obama chose to follow in Arnie’s foot steps by accepting bogus claims of man made climate change. The end result was the devastation of a national economy, the loss of jobs and the destruction of America’s infrastructure. The logic behind simply sending industries to nations with no environmental or labor laws still escapes me. But what real dumbfounded me was how the public bought into it in the first place. How could simply moving an industry to another part of the planet change anything? Surely buying Carbon Credits only lined pockets since none of these initiatives solved anything in all reality. The environment still got polluted but it was OK, just so America and the UK lost all their industries. The salvation for the free world was going to be a global one I venture to say. It’s Disaster Capitalism at its best boys and girls. Like it or not, that is what it was all about and the corporate bottom line, of course.

George Soros and Al Gore invested billions on so called green projects in what will be considered the folly of the 21st century, man made Global Warming. Al Gore funneled taxpayer dollars to foreign countries to build his green financial empire. Obama sent the lion’s share of the environmental stimulus money to other nations as well. The reality of global warming was volcanism and solar activity. Science and other known facts pointed to cyclic changes in the Earths environment rather than man and his industries. Granted mankind should have been kinder to the environment, there is no question. Our stewards should have spent their time and our money preparing us for coming natural events that will soon wreak havoc around the world for this aspect of change is just around the corner. It would appear this Global Warming scam was a tool to cripple the economies of the free world in favor of China and other enemies of this nation. It hints of treason.

Now that the staunchly Democratic state of Massachusetts voted into office a Republican senator, Scott Brown, obviously American’s have had enough. Barack Obama now is pointing his energies towards the banking industry like closing the barn door after all the cows ran off. Ironically this should have been his first agenda when he took office since it is clear as the nose on your face the mortgage industry was riddled with criminals who bought politicians. Christ Dodd should have been marched off to jail pending a full investigation into his involvement and collusion with AIG for he was a liar and a thief. By no means is Chris the only morally bankrupt politician but it would have been a start. Obama should have addressed the Inron Loophole and the Wall Street Speculator scandal at the very beginning of his term in office. This was identified as the root cause of our financial disaster in the first place, or did you forget that part? Basically, Barack should have kept at least one promise he made to the public at large, not the concerns of industry, the World Trade Organization and the New World Order.

Sadly, one year into his presidency he failed to address the increasingly and energetic foreclosure industry. One year into Obama’s presidency and Americans were left to fend for themselves while corporations raked in billions and took our homes away with bail-out money he and GW pandered for, surely you remember that, gads. If Barack Obama wants to salvage his presidency and his legacy he needs to clean house and dump all the vermin he adopted from prior failed administrations starting with Nancy Pelosi. He should also rummage through the presidential trash can for the Constitution of the United States of America and try acting like a US citizen. It should be known that tent cities teaming with new homeless people who voted for Obama on the promise of hope, to save their homes and jobs. No one feels more betrayed then them. His embracing George W. Bush’s executive orders giving the president absolute power while ignoring the constitution revealed volumes about his darker agenda. Obama turned his presidency into GW’s proxy third term in all reality.

If Barack Obama does not do something radical to alter the course of his administration he will surpass Jimmy Carter in being the worst president in US history. In fact he will be remembered as the president who tried to destroy America in favor of the New World Order. I say tried since he and his handlers woefully underestimated the will of the American people. So did the rest of the world for that matter, including China.

Hey Obama, it’s all about “We the People” not “We the Corporation” Capice?

Attn: Ken Salazar, Secretary — Indian Affairs

1849 C Street, N.W.

Washington, DC 20240


The California Valley Miwok Tribe Officially Request to be removed from the Jurisdiction of CCA/PRO BIA and be immediately allowed to join the Self-Governance Consortium

Dear Secretary Salazar;

The California Valley Miwok Tribe officially request to be removed from the jurisdiction of the Central California Agency — Bureau of Indian Affairs (CCA/BIA).Previously, we (the “Tribe” requested to be put in the jurisdiction of the Northern or Southern California BIA Agencies , but since the Regional Director at the Pacific Regional Office in Sacramento California has done nothing to step in to protect our Tribe from the abuses inflicted upon us by the CCA/BIA, and due to the fact that, we (the “Tribe” have had to endure so much pain and suffering (for instance our Mature Status 638 Contract being illegally stopped (FY2008/2009/2010, and our Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (RSTF monies illegally being withheld since 2005, we feel that the local BIA has failed miserably in protecting our inherent and civil rights as federally recognized American Indians.Our Members are suffering due to Tribal monies being illegally withheld.

CCA/BIA has continually allowed outside (Big Gaming Developers to interfere into our Tribal Affairs and we as a federally recognized Tribe had to stand alone to fight off this vicious attack on our sovereignty and our very existence as a Custom and Tradition Tribe. We (the “Tribe” officially complained to Department of the Interior Officials and to the Inspector General’s Office about our personal and confidential information being distributed out through FOIA from the Central California Agency-BIA office and we have yet to see anything done regarding this blatant violation of trust and responsibility, what ever happened to our right to privacy? We whole-heartedly believe that we would not be treated fairly within the CCA/PRO jurisdiction and am requesting that the Department of the Interior — Indian Affairs remove us from the jurisdiction of the Central California Agency/Pacific Regional Office and allow us to go into the Self-Governance Consortium with other federally recognized Tribes that deal directly with the Department of the Interior-Indian Affairs in Washington DC.

We (as in our earlier requests) desire to be in the Self Governance Consortium (with the other 260+Tribes). We, the “Tribe” believe that the Self-Governance Consortium will not only protect our inherent rights as a federally recognized Tribe, but will also protect our Tribe and its members as a sovereign Tribal Nation.

We have no reason to trust or believe the Central California Agency (CCA or Pacific Regional Office (PRO Bureau of Indian Affairs. The Tribe feels that the only way it will be safe is to be in the consortium and be self governing. We, the “Tribe” foresee nothing but continued suffering in our future if we are to remain under their “abusive thumb” jurisdiction of the CCA/BIA.

Please APPROVE our Official Request.

Stockton, California, The California Valley Miwok Tribe once again is facing the

threat of eviction off its Tribal Property located at 10601 Escondido Pl., Stockton,

CA 95212.

Stockton is in the top 5 across the nation regarding homes being foreclosed upon.

Miwok territory covers 10 counties and our Tribe is fighting to retain its 1



of land. It is our homeland, our history here in San Joaquin. We do not want to

lose our land. Our people are being threatened to be thrown out in the street (by

the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Dept.) on January 15, 2010.

We are asking for the community to join us. We are asking for One West Bank to

hold off on moving forward with the eviction. We have a lawsuit against the

California Gambling Control Commission that will be heard on February 9, 2010 in

which we anticipate our Revenue Sharing Trust Fund Money being released. That

means, the Tribe can pay to keep its property.

We are asking that One West Bank give us the extra time to have our day in court

and to have the chance to save our land. We (the “Tribe”) have had so much

taken from us in the past that it may only be 1 1/2 acres of land but it means

everything to us.

You may help by contacting Governor Schwarzenegger and tell him that the

California Valley Miwok Tribe (a federally recognized Miwok Tribe) is fighting off

being thrown out in the street due to foreclosure of their Tribal Property because

of the California Gambling Control Commission illegally withholding their Revenue

Sharing Trust Fund Money for the past 5 years. Tell the Governor that the Miwok

people are in a dire situation and that CGCC will not release our funding because

they say they are waiting for the local BIA to say who the Tribal leader is, but the

BIA says they have no jurisdiction or mandate to tell CGCC anything.

President Obama needs to intervene on our behalf and put a stop to the abuses

the local BIA has been inflicting upon our Tribe. RELEASE OUR FUNDS!!!

China’s BYD Auto Sent to Invade Struggling US Auto Markets

Posted in America’s with tags , , , , , on January 15, 2010 by buffalohair

With US industries moving to China for cheap labor and no environmental laws it is clear China and ruthless industrialists have targeted the US again. This time they plan to sell cars made in China further crippling the western industries. Knowing what we do about China’s reputation for selling tainted milk, deadly dog food, bogus dry wall and a host of other tainted and deadly products, *BYD should offer us spectacular auto accidents and more untold loss of life. But since it’s all about the corporate bottom line the loss of life is simply collateral damage and well worth the profits.

US and Canadian jobs and industries have been moved to China leaving the western hemisphere in economical shambles. Since Bill Clinton opened the flood gates of China’s sub standard goods the US and Canadian consumer has paid dearly in the loss of life and defective products. With recalls coming from once quality manufacturers who chose to utilize China’s burgeoning slave labor resources it is clear pride in manufacture has gone by the wayside. Likened to trash in a wrapper Chinese goods have flooded the market place with their cheaper and sub standard goods killing people and pets. The Chinese drywall fiasco added in crippling the housing markets with drywall that destroys wiring and poses major health risks. And this was not an isolated event since millions of homes have become unfit for human or beast from the contaminated drywall.

Insult to injury is the beat way to describe this calculated move to push Chinese cars on the US market. With China deeply encrusted in crimes against humanity, volumes of atrocities are accredited to their portfolio. It is clear their products are drenched in human suffering with China’s bustling Gulag system. The world has grown complacent and only worry about saving a few bucks regardless of how many people died in the manufacture of cheap goods. It is obvious to see why the world as a whole will suffer in coming years for their ambivalence. Knowing what China does to retain cheap prices should have been a major red flag for all consumers but it was not. In fact people have made excuses to justify why they continue to buy goods that are drenched in tyranny making them enablers and financiers of rape, murder and slave labor. Since they support China and China’s human rights violations, in turn they will enjoy the fruits of their ignorance. This is the Time of Change and everyone on Earth is rallying to one side or another either consciously or sub consciously. It’s all about good or evil and the side you choose will affect your destiny. What appears cheap now will garner a hefty price.

It will be interesting to note who jumps on China’s bandwagon to sell these road bombs. Who wants to side with torture, rape and murder? We shall soon see since it was rumored Volvo was considering a working partnership with Chinese tyranny. In any event the culprits of greed will soon make themselves shamelessly known as agents for China’s economy and traitors to their homeland. With blood on their hands they will sell Chinese garbage at the expense of US and Canadian workers who were betrayed by the countries they helped build.

So I guess its OK to sell out our nations industries and workers for the sake of the corporate bottom line. US auto industries who’ve abandoned America for China also plan to sell their cheap second rate junk back to America. Ironically China’s electric cars are targeted for US consumption while they continue to drive Hummers and other gas bombs. What about all the global warming hog wash? Guess it only matters if you come from America since we are the bad guys; just ask our president and Hillary Clinton. They will tell you its all America’s fault.

Buy Chinese Goods and Die

Posted in Asia with tags , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2010 by buffalohair

In yet another round of recalls for poisonous children’s toys US Product Safety authorities scramble to investigate *children’s jewelry tainted with deadly poison, again.

Ironically China’s export earnings have skyrocketed causing an uptick in Asian markets. From deadly Chinese manufactured dog food, date rape laced children’s toy and hundreds of millions of board feed of toxic dry wall China has made a profitable living selling Americans and the free world contaminated, sub-grade and down right lethal products. But the price was right, or was it?

Quality control in China is almost non-existent since corruption has become rampant throughout the Chinese Communist Party and government officials as a whole. Cumulatively China has cost the US consumer billions in their wide ranging defective products. The housing crisis was compounded by the fact millions of homes were built with defective and toxic drywall that literally eats electrical wiring making a new home useless and unlivable. Who will absorb the cost for this disaster, the US taxpayer? For pet owners the loss of their beloved pets from hopelessly contaminated animal products was a priceless loss indeed. Medical expenses and funeral costs for the children who were poisoned by these goods was insult to injury for families who’ve lost a loved one for they paid the ultimate price for cheaper goods.

The date rape drug found in children’s toys was the epitome of China’s inability or intentional disregard for public safety in the western world. How far beyond stupid are we to continue to buy potentially dangerous if not deadly products from a nation with no regard for quality control? The face China sold software to US power companies that are loaded with Trojans should have been a wake up call since now our power grid is hopelessly compromised. The list of contaminated, defective and deadly goods from China staggers the imagination by its shear magnitude.

But it’s all about lower prices and the corporate bottom line since many US retailers pay pennies on the dollar for China’s ravenously defective and bogus goods. You get what you pay for and cheaper prices all but guarantee your products will be made without those costly issues of quality control. After all, they are cheap for a reason.

Possibly it’s because slave labor does not put their heart into their work and secretly sabotage their jailer’s products. What ever the reason, it is the consumer who continues to feel the brunt of China’s inability to keep deadly products off Canadian and US shelves. There is no question other nations have shared in China’s defective and tainted goods. How many children have died around the world already? You may not have heard about China’s tainted baby formula that killed many Asian kids in the recent past. And there are more horror stories that don’t make the front page or go un reported.

Many third world nations don’t have consumer laws and many more people may have already died in obscurity. With the US suffering a trade deficit since the very beginning it is clear the only people to truly profit from the sale of bogus Chinese goods are corporations and China of course. They buy this trash for less than pennies on the dollar and shove them in the consumer’s faces for just a few dollars less than quality goods. Ah but it’s all about the money and the life of the consumer has no relevance in the corporate eye. With US and UK industries moving jobs to China soon trusted familiar brand names will succumb from cheap labor and Chinese products they’ve placed their once trusted names on.

In any event people do not pay attention and the price they pay may very well be the loss of their family members or pets. But by the time these consumers realize their mistake, it will be too late. The fact many of these products are made with little or no quality control should have been a red flag. Buying Chinese goods over quality made items costs the consumer way more since they have to replace the defective item they bought in the first place. The item they passed over to save a few bucks would have been cheaper in the long run since they would not have to replace it in the first place.

Fanning the flames of China’s growing economy is not necessarily a bad thing provided the products were quality. But to continue to buy from a country with such a fetid track record for selling deadly and defective goods is ludicrous and beyond all sensibilities. The fact China continues to violate every tenet of Human Rights and continues to commit crimes against humanity should have been another red flag. This makes the worldwide consumer a financier of brutality and crimes against humanity when you do the math.

Corporations have gone out of business for a fraction of the continued public safety issues China has been guilty of. Why China gets a free pass on product safety still puzzles all watchdog groups who monitor China’s crimes against the consumer. Corporations turn a deaf ear on consumer complaints and only when there is death to innocent victims do they respond. But in a world that revolves around the corporate bottom line issues of product safety are placed in the same category as Human Rights since these issues are not cost effective.

On a positive note we should all thank Bill Clinton for his continued lobbying for China’s best interests around the world and for giving China “Favored Nation Status”. After all, it was he who opened the floodgates of US and Canadian job losses.

UCDS Students Begin Petition Drive for California Valley Miwok Tribe

Posted in America's with tags , , , , , , , on January 11, 2010 by buffalohair

In a commendable show of solidarity, University of California, San Diego college students have launched a petition directed to the California Legislature in support of the beleaguered California Valley Miwok Tribe. Leave it to college students to stand and fight for justice when others turn a deaf ear though. I salute their dedication and fortitude as they stand with the Miwok Tribe and fighting corrupt BIA and political officials in collusion with a casino mogul.

UCSD Students Rock!

Hopefully awareness will no longer be an issue since it is clear the mainstream media has all but ignored the Miwok’s cry for justice. I’ve included a copy of the UCSD petition statement along with a direct link to the petition for your convenience.

Your Devil’s Advocate


Justice for the California Valley Miwok Tribe

To: California Legislatures

We the students of UCSD, our friends, and allies stand in solidarity to the injustice that is occurring to our brothers and sisters of the California Valley Miwok Tribe (CVMT). They are a federally recognized Tribe, (listed in the Federal Register and in the Dept. of the Interior/Bureau of Indian Affairs, Tribal Leaders Directory, Winter 2009), yet they received an eviction notice to leave their tribal lands TODAY JUNE 17!

The entire tribe, elders and children included, is going to be removed by force from their land with no place to go. They are forced to barricade themselves in the tribal office. Using filing cabinets and anything else they can use to secure the building in hopes to protect their culture, their people, and basically everything they have.

We ask that Miwok tribe be allowed to stay in the land they have lived on for 7 years and be given the chance to dialogue with the appropriate legislatures and/or officials about the matter.

If you can help; by all means contact Silvia Burley, Chairperson of the California Valley Miwok Tribal Council, at 209 931 4567

Thank you,

Besieged Miwok Nation Petitions Ken Salazar

Posted in America's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2010 by buffalohair

Struggling for their very existence, the California Valley Miwok Tribe sent a letter to the Department of Interior’s Ken Salazar in an effort to save their nation from extinction. Almost penniless and bankrupt, this tribe faces criminally corrupt BIA officials and a wealthy casino mogul who are trying to steal their lineage. Their intention is to replace the legitimate tribe with non-Natives who will allow for a casino to be build under the Miwok Nation name.

The tribe sent me a copy of the letter sent to Mr. Salazar. Officially, the federal government has been made aware of the crisis in Central California. Sadly there are members of the Obama administration that may be part of the problem and not the cure. It would appear Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a financial interest in this fraud either directly or triangulated.

At this juncture it is a matter of public awareness since there is little to no coverage within the mainstream media about the crime being committed in California. The innocent victims of greed and identity theft (Miwok Nation) must fend for themselves with the cards stacked against them since the BIA has discontinued their tribal funding. It’s a classic case of big money and politics verses federally recognized tribal nation. Is this another case of broken treaties and promises being perpetrated by the current administration? Or is this a secreted attempt by a few unscrupulous politicians and businessmen to hoodwink the public while stealing the identity of a sovereign nation just to build a casino?

OK Ken Salazar, the cat is out of the bag. As the tribe moves forward within the court system other filings will be posted on this and other sites for the world to see. The Miwok Tribe may be a small nation but they do deserve justice and protection under the law. Race and creed should not be the determining factor in the distribution of rights under the Constitution of the United States of America. There is no such thing as selective justice but in the case of the Miwok Nation, justice actually means, “Just Us”.

Re: California Valley Miwok Tribe

Dear Secretary Salazar;

In light of the correspondence that was submitted to you on November 12, 2009, by Elizabeth Walker regarding the California Valley Miwok Tribe (“Tribe”), I believe it is important, as counsel to the Tribe, to not

only address the numerous inaccuracies in Ms. Walker’s letter, but to also set forth a thorough and accurate account of this federally recognized Tribe’s encounters with government officials and their collusion with non-Indian casino developers. Because neither our firm nor the Tribe was copied on Ms. Walker’s correspondence and it was only recently that we happened to discover this letter on the Internet, we could not provide a response until now. As set forth below, over the course of ten years, the Bureau of Indian Affairs (“BIN’) during the

George W. Bush Administration colluded with non-Indian casino developers and acted deliberately to: (I) cease all stale and federal government funding and benefits to Tribal members, resulting in foreclosure of the Tribal office and residence and the impending bankruptcy of Tribal members; and, (2) manipulate the legal system with frivolous and unauthorized actions, resulting in years of wasted judicial resources at the expense of the Tribe.

I Introduction: Brief Background

In 1979, the Sheep Ranch Rancheria of Me- Wuk Indians of California (subsequently known as the California Valley Miwok Tribe) became a federally-recognized tribe listed on the Federal Register. At the time, Yakima Dixie, son of Mabel Hodge Dixie, to whom the federal government attempted to transfer land pursuant to the California Rancheria Act, served as the sole member of the Tribe. In 1998, Dixie adopted Silvia Burley and three of her relatives into the Tribe. On September 24, 1998, the WA provided correspondence recognizing that Dixie, Silvia Burley, and three other individuals possessed the right to organize the Tribe. Soon after, the Tribe received correspondence from the 13IA formally recognizing Silvia Burley as Chairperson and Yakima Dixie as Vice-Chairperson.

In late 1999, Vice-Chairperson Dixie entered into a development contract in an effort to develop a casino on the Tribe’s land with Chadd Everone, a non-Tribal member and non-Indian. This contract would give Mr. Everone fitly percent (50%) of proceeds of any casino developed on Tribal land. During the next six years, the Tribe operated with a functioning government and received federal benefits pursuant to P.L. 93-638 contracts with the federal government as %veil as state Revenue Sharing Trust Fund (“RSTF”) benefits through the California Gaming Control Commission (“CGCC”). However, these benefits were terminated based on the BIA’s determination that the Tribe was unorganized with respect to its governing body.

In a letter dated December 12, 2008, Edith Blackwell, Associate Solicitor of Indian Affairs at the Office of the Solicitor, Edith Blackwell, acknowledged the adoption of Silvia Burley into the Tribe, and stated that in this situation “the only answer is for the BIA to wait for the Tribe to organize itself.” However, as elaborated below, through the deceptive, unnecessary and illegal conduct of BIA officials and non-Indians with a monetary stake in the destruction of the Tribe, the Tribe was prevented from exercising its most fundamental right to self-governance.

II The 814’s Fraudulent Scheme in Collusion Chadd Everone to Destroy the Tribe Chadd Everone recognized that a cohesive Tribal body with Silvia Burley as Chairperson would impede his efforts to take advantage of and reap financial gain from the Tribe. Thus, with the assistance of BIA officials, he created a web of deception, conspiracy and fraud for the sole purpose of destroying the identity, culture and membership of this federally-recognized Tribe and establishing a new tribe that he could control and manipulate for his own selfish benefit, with no accountability to others.

In 2000, Yakima Dixie entered into casino-related agreements with developers by the name of Bill Martin and Lr Roi Chapel. After these developers discovered that the casino development process would be more complicated than they anticipated, as the Tribe had a functioning government and leadership in place, they enlisted Chadd Everone for the purpose of devising and implementing a scheme to take over the Tribe with the assistance of government officials.

Despite the outrageous actions the 13IA took over the next six years, the Tribe did not sense foul play until it observed the BIA’s inconsistent actions and correspondences with regard to the ‘Tribal government and the CGCC’s sudden cessation of IISTE funds. In 2006, the Tribe hired a private investigator to examine the extent of Chadd Everone’s interference with Tribal affairs, as well as his involvement with government officials. During this investigation, Chadd Everone (as documented in entails and tape recordings, which are publicly available on the Tribe’s website) made numerous statements outlining his scheme, which included an extensive conspiracy on the pad of local BIA officials.

Specifically, from 2000 through 2006, Everette described his scheme of “turning fiction into reality [by] using the court system, Idle] BIA and the [CGCCI to agree with his requests.” (Exhibit A.) Everone explained Ile “learned the system and used it” by re-filing or appealing every decision that was adverse to his monetary position. (Exhibit A, page 2.) Further, Everone slated on numerous occasions that Arlo Smith and Pete Melnicoe, who served as former CGCC Commission Members (Smith) and CGCC Chief Legal Counsel (Melnicoe), were instrumental in convincing the CGCC to cease the Tribe’s IISTE distributions, and that he had hired them to do so. (Exhibit A, page 2, Exhibit C.) Mr. EVCITM1C also seemed to take pride in the fact that he “controlled” Yakima Dixie with respect to all Tribal affairs. (Exhibit A, page 3.) At no time did Everone ever specify the needs and desires of Mr. Dixie with respect to the Tribe or how any of these deceptive activities would even benefit Mr. Dixie or the Tribe. Instead, Mr. Everette spoke of Mr. Dixie only in passing, as if he were a mere tool that Everone was using to implement his strategy.

Chadd Everone also provided details regarding the collusion and involvement of DIA officials, namely Troy Burdick of the Pacific Regional Office, in assisting Everette with his fraudulent scheme. Mr. Burdick advised Everone to not challenge Silvia Burley’s Pt. 93-638 application on behalf of the Tribe, but rather, to file his own 638 application. (Exhibit B.) Mr. Burdick told Everone that the action of filing a competing 638 application would have the effect of “pushing the 81/1 to make a determination on Tribal authority, and, therefore, who should receive Ithe state and federal monies’? (Exhibit E, page I, emphasis added) Mr. Burdick then warned Everone not to mention their meeting or his advice and labeled their meeting as a “secret or private meeting.” (Exhibit 13.)

Furthermore, based on assurances front B1A officials, Everone stated with certainty that the BIA would make a determination on the Tribe’s leadership in his favor and that his group would be the recognized authority over the Tribe. (Exhibit C.) Most shockingly, Mr. Everone made the blunt statement that former CGCC officials Smith and Melnicoe “do not deal with Burdick — he is my jurisdiction,” indicating that Burdick is not only in collusion with Mr. Everone, but that FATIMIC has control over BIA actions through Burdick. (Exhibit E, page I, emphasis addled.)

The BIA’s actions and statements, as well as those of Chadd E.verone, demonstrate how easily government officials under the Bush Administration and non-Indian casino developers can openly and overtly circumvent federal Indian law to abolish the well-established history and defined membership of a federally recognized Indian Tribe.

III Frivolous Legal Proceedings

In addition to colluding with government officials to ensure the cessation of Tribal benefits, Chadd Everone, without any approval or authority from Yakima Dixie, has filed countless baseless and meritless legal documents with the IBIA, forcing the Court to expend judicial resources and delay decision-making in order to respond to such nonsense. Among the numerous nonsensical filings are: filings pertaining to current events; requests for documents; a “Request or Calendal (sic) Position and Timing; and, a “Response to the MIA’s Notice of Non-Receipt of Appellant’s Response to [an IBIAI Order.” In addition to being wasteful of time and judicial resources, not one of these documents has ever been signed by Yakima Dixie himself. EN/crone claims to file them on behalf of “Interested Patties,” though it is never demonstrated how these alleged individuals have any right to or claim in connection with the Tribe. The BIA and the Solicitor’s Office, during the Bush Administration, have received copies of all of these filings, yet they have never questioned why a non-attorney and non-Tribal member with a financial stake ill the outcome of this case was actively filing legal documents before the agencies’ own legal tribunal, in violation of state and federal law.

Recognizing that the BIA would continue to ignore Chadd Everone’s illegal activities, on November 25, 2009, the Tribe filed with the IBIA a Motion to Institute Disciplinary Proceedings Against Chadd Everone.

Through this Motion, the Tribe seeks to have Chadd F.verone prohibited from filing any additional pleadings in cases related to the Tribe before the IBIA for the unauthorized practice of law.

In July 2009, Chadd F.verone, through the guise of Thomas Wolfrum, filed another frivolous legal proceeding, this time in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. After reviewing the pleading, the Court granted the Tribe’s Motion to Dismiss, as well as its Motion for Sanctions, ordering Mr. Wolfrum to pay $3,000 to the Tribe and requiring Mr. Wolfium to report the sanction the California State Bar. In its order, the Court recognizes Clinch! Everone’s tactic as a ‘frivolous lawsuit that resulted in a waste of judicial resources and unnecessary costs to Defendants.” (Emphasis added). While the Court here was able to astutely recognize the Rand and irresponsibility being perpetuated by Everone, it is disheartening and disconcerting that United States government officials from the Department of Interior, despite the abundance of supporting evidence, have not only refused to make a similar determination, but have gone so far as to recognize

Chadd Everette has an authoritative figure with decision-making power over the Tribe.

In 2009, despite the efforts of the Tribe to hold a neutral mediation with Yakima Dixie, the BR, again in complicity with Chadd Everone, thwarted any mediation opportunity. Although Elizabeth Walker sent correspondence to the Department of Interior, declining mediation on helm If of Yakima Dixie our firm later discovered that neither Ms. Walker nor Thomas Wolfrum ever represented Yakima Dixie. In fact, when asked whether he was aware of the most recent mediation opportunity, Mr. Dixie suited that he had never heard about

it and had he known about it, he would have participated in such a process. Mr. Dixie also signed an acknowledgement stating such as well as his desire for a renewed mediation offer from the BIA. (Exhibit F.) Thus, one of the Tribe’s most promising opportunities to date to resolve its internal dispute was once again deliberately and forcefully obstructed by the subsequent actions of a casino developer in collusion with the DIA.

IV. Conclusion: Final Request for Assistance

On December 14, 2009, the bank that owns the Tribal residence and office (the address that is listed as the Tribe’s official address in the Federal Register and on all previous and recent government correspondence), served the Tribe with a notice that eviction proceedings will be initiated on January 15, 2010 and that all Tribal members must evacuate the premises on that date. Despite the fact that the two members of this federally recognized Tribe ; Yakima Dixie and Silvia Burley, were and are still ready and willing to participate in

3 mediations to finally resolve this long-standing and wasteful dispute, and even though government officials were well aware of this fact and were in a position to prevent the pending homelessness of the Tribal members, these government officials, including those from the local BIA, the CGCC, as well as the Department of Interior, have allowed a non-indian casino developer with no authority whatsoever, to hijack the entire dispute resolution process, manipulate an elderly man with limited resources, and now, force the eviction and impoverishment of a federally-recognized Tribe located on American soil.

The Tribe is now just days away from eviction and the Obama Administration is now, as it has always been, in a position to prevent and/or delay this eviction in order to allow the Tribe to resolve its dispute and ultimately restore federal and state Tribal benefits. Now that the Tribe’s full story has been accurately relayed and the facts of deception, manipulation and fraud have been thoroughly outlined, the future of this Tribe is now, once again, in the hands of the federal-government. The only question is, whether the federal-government will finally revive this Tribe and attempt to save it from the brink of death, or if it will continue its prejudice and provide the final nail in the coffin?

Goin' Native the American Indian Comedy Slam - part 1 Open

Goin' Native the American Indian Comedy Slam - Part 2 "The Comedians"

Floyd Red Crow Westerman - How Long Have You Been Blind

Floyd Red Crow Westerman's "How Long have you Been Blind" Lyrics.

Trouble in the city
Trouble in the country side
Can't sweep it under the rug
You got trouble you can't hide

Trouble on a reservation
Trouble in the ghetto too
And the lies you told my children
Are coming down on you

How long have you been blind?
Been coming a long, long time!

Trouble in the jail house
Trouble out in the street
You can't blame it on someone else
You got no place to retreat

Trouble in your courtroom
Trouble written on the wall
And all the pieces of your mistakes
Are starting to fall

How long have you been blind?
Been coming a long, long time!

And now the crowd is leaving
But they got no place to go
There's a red man in the mountain
Standing in the snow
Time will be a season
I know it will come to pass
But those who listen to the sign
Will behold to a land

How long have you been blind?
Been coming a long, long time!

Trouble with the countries
Trouble with the way you live
You've been taking for so long
You don't know how to give

How long have you been blind?
Been coming a long, long time!

California Tribe Faces Forced Extinction

Between corrupt California, Nevada officials and an unscrupulous Nevada casino mogul the hand would appear stacked against the federally recognized Miwok Tribe of Central California. On one side you have a casino magnate from Nevada along with a host of politicians from California, Nevada and within the Obama Administration who want to force this humble tribe out of existence and replace them with non natives. It’s all about the money and gambling revenue and these hopelessly corrupt politicians eagerly want to cash in on the lucrative gambling industry. On the other side of the coin are card carrying Miwok people who don’t want corrupt politicians to steal their blood right and tribal sovereignty. Talk about identity theft, this is a bold faced fraud falls more in the category of bunko rather than political.

In an interview with tribal elders including tribal chief Silvia Burley the names of Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were unmistakably entrenched in this conversation. Apparently they have a vested interest in the fraud that is being perpetrated against the sovereign Miwok Nation either directly or triangulated. In short, fraud and criminality as well as hopelessly corrupt politicians and a casino mogul with unlimited resources and deep pockets laid siege on this nation knowing this tribe does not have the financial capability to fight this well funded adversary. The tribe’s only hope to survive the latest attempt to take their lineage away from them is to petition Indian Country, the American pubic as well as the world for assistance. Their coffers have been empty since their tribal funds have been illegally stopped in this elaborate game of chess perpetrated by morally bankrupt BIA officials. And it’s all about the money Paisan, it’s all about the money.

The real issue is tribal sovereignty and not just in California but throughout Indian Country since the Crow Creek Sioux Nation of South Dakota was the victim of an Internal Revenue Service land sale, on sovereign tribal land. That was an absolute violation of tribal sovereignty guaranteed by the federal government, again. The story about the Crow Creek Sioux Nation should be an example to other nations since this is a very dangerous precedent. The violation of sovereign rights is becoming a trend with various unscrupulous politicians and corporate thugs who continue their reign of greed and hatred for the indigenous people of the continental United States of America. Now we have thugs and corrupt politicians with millions of dollars to spend while bankrupting the Miwok Nation.

The prize will be to steal their federal recognition, their name, their lineage and replace them with people who will “play ball” with non native investors. On the bright side there will be a nice shiny casino with their tribal name boldly embossed in lights. Since non natives would assume the role of Miwok people I wonder where the real Miwok would have to go. Would they still be considered American Indian? Or will they be relegated to “Other”? Maybe the feds will move them to Oklahoma and join them to another tribe. But what about all the money the BIA illegally withheld from them to try and starve them out. Will they get their back pay or will the government make a new excuse as to why they do not deserve illegally withheld funds? I just wonder.

The tangled web of corruption places Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid smack in the middle of this scam to steal a tribe’s heritage and their sovereignty according to inside sources. Sadly as the truth evolves it places the Obama Administration in the hot seat since this crime may involve popular Democratic Party officials. Their close relationship with other unscrupulous business associates will undoubtedly come into focus as well. With money and a hand full of corruptible politicians laws will be ignored for the sake of the corporate bottom line across Indian Country since this is only the beginning I fear. But in the case of the Miwok Tribe they will not go down without a fight even if they do not have the deep pockets of a casino mogul to feed their struggle. I have included the latest press release from this beleaguered nation.

Your Devil’s Advocate




Picket the Central California Agency-Bureau of Indian Affairs

The California Valley Miwok Tribe invites you to join us in our open protest against the local Bureau of Indian Affairs, Dept. of the Interior, Central California Agency.

Our Tribe is a federally recognized Tribe that is listed in the Federal Register as an Indian Entity Recognized and Eligible to receive services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 & Thursday, January 7 th, 2010


10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. (each day) followed by a 1 hour Press Conference (each day)

For more info contact the California Valley Miwok Tribe at (209) 931 -4567

The Central California Agency — BIA is illegally trying to re-organize a federally recognized Tribe that has never been terminated, that has a Custom and Tradition Tribal Constitution ratified by the Tribe in March 2000. The local BIA has been illegally withholding our Mature Status 638 Contract since 2008 and by refusing to confirm to the California Gambling Control Commission who our duly elected Chairperson is, BIA has caused the CGCC to illegally withhold the Tribe’s Revenue Sharing Trust Fund Monies (RSTF) since 2005.

Our civil rights have been violated. The local BIA is also violating federal law.

We (the “Tribe”) have no money to fund our Tribal Programs; all employees have been laid off since Dec 2007. The Tribe cannot pay its bills, and the only Tribal Property (1% acres of land at 10601 Escondido Pl., Stockton, CA 95212) has been foreclosed on. The Sheriff’s Department is scheduled to evict the Tribe and its members off the Tribal Property on January 15, 2010.

We are demanding that our funding be released immediately so we can save our Tribal Property and not be homeless. We are demanding fair treatment by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. We are demanding that an investigation into the inappropriate actions and treatment of
our Tribe, by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The Dept of the Interior – BIA mission is to “protect and honor its trust responsibilities to American Indians, Alaskan Natives and Affiliated Island Communities”, so why have they failed so miserably with protecting the California Valley Miwok Tribe? Come join us, voice your concerns and issues. Show strength in UNITY!!
