CNO Attorney General Hembree: I DO NOT INTEND to FILE AN APPEAL


WELL DONE SIR, WELL DONE!

Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree issued the following statement in the ruling of Cherokee Nation v. Nash, et. al in the U.S District Court for Washington D.C.

“Yesterday, a Federal Court issued a long awaited ruling determining the rights and interests of Cherokee Freedmen descendants. The Court ruled that Freedmen descendants have the right to citizenship within the Cherokee Nation.

CA Assembly Committee Hears Opposition on Fast-Tracked Elk Grove Casino Indian Gaming Compact

The hearing included compact proponents from the Governor's office, Cooper, Elk Grove Council Members Pat Hume and Stephanie Nguyen, and Wilton Rancheria Chairman Raymond Hitchcock. Unlike the Senate committee hearing, Assemblymembers heard more opposition to the gaming compact.   Assembly floor vote is scheduled for Thursday, August 31.

Appearing again in opposition to the compact was Lisa Jimenez, Chair of the Historical Disenrolled Families of the Wilton Rancheria. Jimenez said there were more than 100 members disenrolled based on a new constitution.

"Most tribes want to preserve their heritage," Jimenez said. "Not this tribe."

She added, "They are disenrolling because less is more, I don't care about the casino, I care about our people."

Cherokee Freedmen Atty JON VELIE Statement on Today's Victory Against RACIAL OPPRESSION by The Cherokee Nation

Cherokee Freedmen attorney JON VELIE remarks on the incredible victory today for his clients, and for Native America.
Following a 14-year legal battle, the DC Federal District Court held that the Freedman, descendants of the slaves held by Cherokee Nation who were granted citizenship rights in the Treaty of 1866, following the Civil War, have a right to citizenship under the Treaty.

I am attaching the lengthy decision and including a quote from the primary attorney in the case. There is a great deal of historical coverage about this case over the years but no one has noticed the victory here in DC.  I thought I would give you a heads up.

Dear Families,

CHEROKEE FREEDMEN WIN!! Landmark Case says they HAVE RIGHTS to CITIZENSHIP

BREAKING!    Cherokee Freedmen descendants have won their case in federal court. In a 70 page decision the judge has found that they have rights of citizenship. 

AFTER THREE YEARS.   Ruling to follow!   HERE IT IS! 
Marilyn VANN

READ their history here

FROM JUDGE HOGEN"S RULING:
There appears to be no dispute that the Cherokee Freedmen are descendants of freedmen who were held as slaves by Cherokees and ultimately listed on the Dawes Freedmen Roll. MONEY: Article 9 of the
Treaty of 1866 entitles them to “all the rights of native Cherokees,” 14 Stat. at 801, which means they have a right to citizenship so long as native Cherokees have that right. 
Nothing in the 1866 Treaty qualified that right by subjecting it to a condition antecedent that would terminate it, including the extinction of Indian Territory upon Oklahoma statehood. Although the Cherokee Nation Constitution defines citizenship, Article 9 of the 1866 Treaty guarantees that the Cherokee Freedmen shall have the
right to it for as long as native Cherokees have that right

The history, negotiations, and practical construction of the 1866 Treaty suggest no other result. Consequently, the Cherokee Freedmen’s right
to citizenship in the Cherokee Nation is directly proportional to native Cherokees’ right to citizenship, and the Five Tribes Act has no effect on that right. The Five Tribes Act did not abrogate, amend or
otherwise alter Article 9’s promise that descendants of freedmen shall have all the rights of native Cherokees. 

L.A. City Council VOTES YES on CHANGING COLUMBUS DAY to Indigenous People's Day

RULES committee votes 14 -1 to make the CHANGE




A great day in Los Angeles as the city council finally recognized the Native American community.  I am proud that my cousin Olivia Walls went to speak today on the changing today of Columbus Day to Indigenous People's Day.

Some commenters claimed Italians did a lot for this country..uh including bringing spaghetti. Let me say, I love Italians, and spaghetti.  But this issue is much different than it being anti-Italian.   

Arguments against Columbus:

Indian Country Today: For Sale Can it Become a NATIVE RUN ENTERPRISE?

Sad news that one of the biggest names in Native news, Indian Country Today, in which I am PROUD to be published in, is looking for a buyer.

Native American publication FOR SALE



ICT published a piece by a UCLA professor Duane Champagne that was so error-laden that it had to be deliberate.   So I wrote a piece taking Champagne's piece down and they were good enough to publish it.
See: A Rebuttal to Duane Champagne

Today, Mark Trahant has an article about the publication in his TRAHANT REPORTS, which was sold to the Oneida Nation in 1998.  We've written about the Oneida Nation and it's disgraceful leader Ray Halbritter here.

Noted Native American Auther Jaqueline Keeler, who stood with us at demonstrations against tribal disenrollment in Sacramento used to write for Indian Country today.   She wrote about her firing in a Daily Kos article, that "outed" the fact that most of the salaried employees at ICT were NON-Indians.

Here's hoping that an independent Native Group can purchase this paper and continue to bring the Native Stories to the public.  In the meantime, come here for stories on Disenrollment and Tribal Corruption.

Democrats Who Play the Victim Card on Civil Rights Are USELESS in Indian Country

 So many news media and Hollywood types are out with comments like "If you support Trump, you support RACISM!   It had me wondering, if you don't STAND AGAINST the moral stains created by disenrolling tribes, does that mean YOU SUPPORT ABUSES of Civil and Human RIGHTS?!


Robinson Rancheria Protest
Led to restoration of all rights for Disenrolled

















For over a DECADE, we've written to our State's Senators (Barbara Boxer , Feinstein and most recently Harris ), local Representatives and at least THREE U.S. Attorney Generals (Holder,  Lynch, and most recently Jeff Sessions)   Crickets chirping is the usual response.  And the entertainers, yes we wrote to many, asking them not to perform at an APARTHEID reservation, including George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias, who we sent more than 50 faxes.  Not a response.  Does this mean they approve of civil rights abuses?

Here's what we've seen on the Charlottesville/Trump response and the lumping everyone together. 

Picayune Rancheria REMOVES Council Member Patrick Hammond




Patrick Hammond was removed from Tribal Council last night for removing documents from the casino during the war at the Chukchansi Gold casino "break in".

THE STORY is DEVELOPING....so stay tuned

The Faces of Disenrollment: The Robert Foreman Family Ejected in 2004 and Suffered Abuses From REDDING RANCHERIA

Our series on the Faces of Disenrollment continues with the Foreman's of the Redding Rancheria

Robert Foreman


We've told some of the story of Bob Foreman and his family.  Did you know the had to dig up two of their ancestors for DNA?

The chairwoman of the Redding Rancheria in California said the tribe questioned the accuracy of DNA tests for a large family that was recently disenrolled.

To prove their heritage, the Foremans dug up two ancestors and took DNA tests. But Edwards said the process wasn't accepted by the tribe because no member witnessed the exhumations.   (OP:  Say that OUT LOUD...was there a REQUIREMENT for that?  And the Chief of the Pit River Nation Willard Rhoades, respected elder WAS PRESENT. If there was a requirement for member presence, WHY did they NOT attend? Why was that NOT mentioned?  Because the 99.7% score was too high, so they needed another excuse?)

Chair Tracy Edwards said the dispute over the Foreman family predates per capita payments from the tribe's casino. But with the 76 Foremans now gone, the remaining 212 members will get to share in the $2.7 million annual payment that previously went to the family.  (OP: It's NOT ABOUT the money?)

Saginaw Chippewa Disenrollment: Judge Patrick Shannon RULES AGAINST Disenrolled

Color me SHOCKED.  The the matter of tribal disenrollment at the Saginaw Chippewa tribe, Who would believe that a Judge whose job depends on ruling what the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council wants, would rule in their favor? Or just as truly, when asked to review his previous decision on the disenrollment, he agreed with ....uh...himself?

The Saginaw Chippewa tribe have disenrolled the living and the dead, we've published many articles on the tribal disenrollment:

ELEM INDIAN COLONY Shifts Goalposts on Membership Requirements To Stall Enrollments

The Elem Indian Colony, recent subject of lawsuits against their tribal disenrollment actions which were outside their constitution are now taking a different tack: Shuffling paperwork AND requirements  (again, ordinances were never legally changed)

Here is an example, of the Geary children a denial that DEMANDS.

1. Proof they were not enrolled in another tribe (Their mother is Non-Indian)  
2. Prove at least 1/8 Indian blood (Elem Government cannot do a simple math)
3. DNA test (the General Council did not legally change membership       ordinances to include a DNA test)


Tribal chairman Augustine Garcia refused request to see minutes of meeting where the DNA requirements were approved.  If the changes were just, why not show them?   Is he getting advice from BIA employees ...AGAIN?


Augustine Garcia

REMINDER:  In the recent lawsuit, the Judge demanded that the Elem Government allow all the Citizens to attend Tribal Meetings. Since then, those who live on the reservation have been turned away, violating the Federal Judge's request.  Isn't that CONTEMPT?

Democrats WHIFF FOUR TIMES in Monument Posturing Against TRUMP

FOUR Congressional Members, 100 people and NO NATIVE American Representation?  There were at least FOUR local tribal factions that could have been invited .  Gabrieleno Tongva NationGabrieleno Kizh, Gabrieleno Tongva, Tongva Nation    And not ONE?  That's a whiff on California history.

Judy Chu Forgetting Natives
a MONUMENTAL mistake

Judy Chu of Pasadena, Jimmy Gomez of Los Angeles, Brad Sherman of Sherman Oaks and Adam Schiff of Burbank, all Democrats — condemned Trump’s decision to review the monuments, saying the president’s action was a nod to corporate greed.    They left out they didn't give a nod to the indigenous people who, you know, STILL LIVE in the area.

WILL TRUMP be ANY Different on Disenrollment Than is Predecessors Asks Gabrieleno Tongva Activist Emilio Reyes


President Donald J. Trump

Stop Tribal Genocide founder Emilio Reyes has an open letter to POTUS which you can read here

Under the Obama administration the numbers drastically increased on tribal disenrollment. While his administration ignored to take any action in protecting Native American individual rights, let’s find out if the Trump administration is willing to take any action on tribal disenrollment.  (OP)Obama was okay with violations as a SENATOR

The following is an open letter to President Trump:

BIA Director AMY DUTSCHKE's IONE Band of Miwok MISSING Enrollment Documents ?

Well now, this is interesting to say the least. 

There are some PROBLEMS arising at the IONE BAND of MIWOK Tribe in Amador County, CA, the tribe of Bureau of Indian Affairs Director Amy Dutschke and her two nieces, who also work at the BIA's offices.


It seems that some enrollment audit information sent to the office of  Director Dutschke have disappeared?  Poof? Or abracadabra?  It's the Bureau's responsibility to maintain records. How is it possible that records dating 1996 could be missing.  IS there an ulterior tied to these MISSING records? Delay enrollment or to obfuscate who belongs where?

Curious still: MEMBERSHIP ROLLS were provided to the BIA?  Are tribal membership rolls public information?   

SIDEBAR: 
This is the original judgement of the IONE BAND, HOW did others get in the tribe. Who was looking out for the ORIGINAL Tribal members?



What do the Ione Enrollment Ordinances say, Amy?  Perhaps the confusion on IONE enrollment is to allow certain others to enroll elsewhere? To keep Ione small and controllable?

The Faces of Disenrollment: Manuela Miranda Descendants: WE BELONG and ALWAYS HAVE

Is this story of Pablo Apis' FAMILY being told at Pechanga?  True descendants who belong in the tribe, eliminated because of POLITICS.
Manuela Miranda 
For centuries, the Pechanga/Temecula people lived in peace with one another. 
Despite occasional differences, we have always struggled and survived as a unified community. Indeed, under the leadership of Chief Pablo Apis and others, our common ancestors literally fought and died for the land which was set aside by Executive Orders in 1882 and 1893 for the use and benefit of the “Temecula Band or village of Mission Indians“.
HISTORY: The Temecula Indian village, from which our ancestors were forcibly expelled from in 1875, was located within the tribe's aboriginal territory on land which was deeded to Chief Pablo Apis as the Little Temecula Rancho and which was to be set aside for the Temecula Indians by the Treaty of Peace and Friendship. The treaty, which was signed at Chief Apis' adobe in the Tribe's village, was never ratified by the US Congress. The land on which the Pechanga Resort and Casino is located is actually a corner of Chief Pablo Apis‘ original land grant.

Picayune Rancheria of CHUKCHANSI Indians DENIED in Suit Against North Fork Rancheria

  VS.


A California federal court has denied the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians' suit challenging a U.S. Department of the Interior decision to authorize another tribe, the North Fork Rancheria to conduct gambling at an off-reservation site and has given the green light to the other tribe’s bid to toss the suit.

Senior U.S. District Judge Anthony W. Ishii on Thursday signed an order denying the Picayune Tribe’s motion for summary judgment and granted the Interior Department’s summary judgment cross-motion, favoring the North Fork Rancheria Tribe’s bid to commence gaming activity...

Pechanga HELPS Disadvantaged Youth with Back to School. Read the WHOLE story

Most of the time, it’s just the rich and famous for whom a store will close so they can shop in private. On a recent Saturday morning, 205 deserving Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee children received a shopping spree all their own at the JC Penney in Temecula before the doors opened to the public.

The ChildSpree program, coordinated through the local chapter of the Salvation Army, set kids ages 5 through 18 up with backpacks, school supplies, a $125 JC Penney Gift Card and volunteer personal shoppers. Pechanga provided 120 of the 205 volunteers needed to chaperone the kids, in addition to $7,000 toward a shopping spree for 56 kids.

Nooksack CHILDREN again DENIED School Supplies From CORRUPT LEADERS

Yes, another new school year...ANOTHER year of 50+ Nooksack students, make that certain Nooksack students DENIED school supplies from the tribe.  Indian Child Welfare...means NOTHING to Bob Kelly and his unlawful cohorts.  We wrote about the child abuse beginning back in 2014

Unfortunately, there's a need for a GOFUNDME page to help these children who were unlawfully disenrolled, be prepared for school.  You can go to it from HERE


Pechanga Tribe's Splinter Group PART IV: Setting Tribal Genocide in MOTION

We are reprising a set of posts from 2008, from the Manuela Miranda Family of Pechanga, when fewer people understood what disenrollment was doing to Native people.

People say, "why don't you ask the Native American Rights Fund for help? Well, we have, they told me the "didn't do Indian vs. Indian". Shamefully, NARF has the leader of a disenrolling tribe, Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro on their board.       Read on.....

When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew, therefore I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic, and therefore, I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists, I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned.
Then Hitler attacked me and the Protestant church -- and there was nobody left to be concerned.

Martin Niemoller, Congressional Record, 14 October 1968, page 31636

Why this installment regarding the Splinter Group starting with a quote about Hitler and the Nazis. Well, if you have not noticed, there is a new era of genocide rolling through Indian Country. This genocide is not at the hands of the Spanish government, nor a policy of the US government.

This new genocide is being carried out by non-Indian people masquerading as “TRUE” Indian people, and “LEGITIMATE” Indian people under their control who have lost their way and turned their backs on their brothers and sisters.

In CA, Should Father Serra Monuments be REMOVED, OR Confederate STATUES?

Should BLACK slavery be the only egregious act that leads to Confederate monuments to slavery being torn down?  Why aren't all statues to Father Junipero Serra coming down as well?  And EVERY CALIFORNIA MISSION built on the backs and OVER THE BODIES of thousands of Native Americans used as slave labor?
Juniper Serra Statue Defaced in
Mission Hills

In 1771, Serra expressed his “hope” that “we [Spanish Catholics] will see, before long, new and immense territories gathered into the bosom of our Holy Mother the Church, and subjected to the Crown of Spain.” (Writings of Junipero Serra, ed., Antonine Tibesar, O. F. M., Vol. I, Washington, D.C.: Academy of American Franciscan History, p. 209). 

Blogger Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy has a very serious takedown in January 2015 of the news that everyone's new favorite Pope, Francis will name Father Junipero Serra a Saint.   Well done, Dr. Thank you for the enlightenment

NPR Discovers Tribal Disenrollment: Deborah Alexander on the NOOKSACK Disenrollment & Casino Closures

Stories like this can lead to MORE STORIES on Tribal Disenrollment in Native American tribes.

NPR: The NookSack Tribe and clinic would not return interview requests, but the federal government says Alexander should have never been denied tribal health care. That's because disenrollments happened after the NookSack council failed to hold an election when many of its seats expired. Because the tribal government lacks quorum, the Department of Interior says the tribe does not have a government. And the feds aren't recognizing the disenrollments.

The MORAL STAIN of TRIBAL DISENROLLMENT

MORALITY:  a particular system of values and principles of conduct, especially one held by a specified person or society.


The Obama Administration and the George W. Bush administration that preceded him, both suffered from "SPINELESS MORALITY" Their Bureau of Indian Affairs turn a blind eye to civil rights violations by native American tribes at every opportunity.   Will the Donald Trump administration be just as guilty?

Do Native American Millenials KNOW What Their "Elders" Did to Natives Via Disenrollment?

We asked some questions in the first installment of the reprise of Pechanga's Splinter Group leading the way to Tribal Genocide, via paper, of over 20% of it's tribal membership. .. So many young members of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA... Have NO idea what went on.

REALLY, though, all young who were, say 12 years of age when the disenrollments happened at Redding, Enterprise, Chukchansi and Pechanga, are now 25 years old.  DO THEY KNOW?

Do they know that a family was disenrolled, even though they are descended from the man whose land grant the casino now sits? Or, was the first chairperson of their tribe after getting their rights back? (Redding)

Pechanga Tribe's SPLINTER GROUP Part 3: Breaking Away from the Band

3rd in a series..
OP:  An interesting question was brought up in the comments of Part ONE consider this when you read it:


If Butch Murphy and the others, including Jennie Miranda and HER FAMILY, started their own tribe and were recognized by the BIA,  isn't that against Pechanga's by laws? If you are enrolled in an other tribe you can not enroll in Pechanga.



San Pasqual Descendants EXPOSE DAVE TOLER, As CHIEF OBFUSCATER. CAN JUSTICE DEPT. Attorney GEORGE MANAHAN BE THIS BLIND?

Jose Juan of San Pasqual
GIVING UP IS NOT in the plans for the San Pasqual Descendants in their quest for JUSTICE for their ancestors and themselves.  Today, we have some evidence of what could be deliberate malfeasance on the part of San Pasqual Tribal council ....malfeasance. In this case, DAVE TOLER may have deliberately mislead the Bureau of Indian Affairs, on the Jose Juan history.

It appears, that Toler used any old Jose Juan's history to mislead the BIA in order to keep the proper descendants out of the tribe and keep the descendants of white man Frank Trask in place.  Toler was also confronted in this video by Huumaay Quisquis.

Pechanga Tribe's SPLINTER GROUP 2:Those NOT MEETING Membership Requirements Worm Their Way into the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians

PART TWO in a series.

We are reprising the story of the SPLINTER GROUP, the Concerned Pechanga People and the FAKES...originally exposed by descendants of Pablo Apis, the original land owner where the Pechanga Resort & Casino now sits. So many tribal members are coming of age and asking WHAT HAPPENED?

Some have asked who is BM (OP: Butch Murphy)? Are those the correct initials? Which families were those that could not meet the membership requirements? Which families formed the Splinter Group and the Concerned Pechanga People?

Well, BM are the correct initials. As for the families that could not meet the membership requirements and formed the Splinter Group, let’s just call them “M and M”. Sure, there are others that joined them, but the “M and M” families spearheaded the whole thing. But whatever you do, don’t expect to find the “M and M” families in any historical documents about the Temecula Indians. Yet, our elders remember them STANDING on the steps HOLLERING to be let in the tribe, including the late ancestor of a current, disenfranchised lawyer living in WA.

Lawsuit Against Disreputable Chukchani Tribe, DISMISSED in Federal Court, REFILED in State Court

THE TRIBE NEED THEIR HELP, PROMISED TO PAY and then DON'T? WHO could have foreseen this?


A $21 million lawsuit from a group that claims it was instrumental in getting Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino reopened in 2015 has been dismissed from federal court, but was refiled at the state level shortly after that ruling.

The lawsuit, filed by Osceola Blackwood Ivory Gaming Group (OBIG) of Florida in March, contends tribal officials in the summer of 2015 agreed to pay the company 30 percent of net revenues for seven years, allowable under National Indian Gaming Commission rules. The numbers were later negotiated to 25 percent over five years.

Pechanga Tribe's SPLINTER GROUP: NOT REALLY PECHANGA?

The Manuela Miranda descendants (ON WHOSE Ancestor's LAND the Pechanga Casino Sits) published these stories 10 years ago.We think it's time to refresh some memories and make sure new parties are informed.

So many young members of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula CA... Have NO idea what went on.

Do they know that a family was disenrolled, even though they are descended from the man whose land grant the casino now sits?
Do they know the tribal council went against the will of their people? 
Do they know Hunter descendants have been on their reservation land since BEFORE most of the tribal population was born?
DO they KNOW the tribe HIRED an expert, paid him THOUSANDS of dollars and then DIDN't USE his work because it disagreed with their plans?

What is the Splinter Group? Who are its members? What is its relationship to the so called Concerned Pechanga People? Why did they spearhead the Pechanga disenrollments?

NOOKSACK DISENROLLMENT ACTIONS: PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE...with OTHER's LIVES


Great story from  KUOW on the NOOKSACK DISENROLLMENT

IHS Money QUOTE:  We totally believe in the sovereignty of the tribe and support that. Whatever the tribe decides to do when they have a duly elected council — if they want to disenroll folks — that’s their tribal business,” Seyler said.

Over the past few weeks, dozens of tribes across the Pacific Northwest have been paddling canoes 200-400 miles on the salty waters between Washington and Vancouver Island.

Deborah Alexander led about a dozen young paddlers on the annual canoe journey along traditional trade routes. Alexander’s canoe was filled with many people, including herself, who have been disenrolled from their tribe.

“We’re fighting for our right to remain Nooksack,” she said.

Alexander’s long wooden canoe is named after her grandmother, Emma, a symbol of disenrollment. The Nooksack tribal government said Alexander and her extended family of 306 were disenrolled because they couldn’t provide the birth certificate of Emma’s mother.

Alexander was removed from tribal rolls and fired from her job as a teacher about a year ago.

Now the federal government is stepping in. The Department of Interior says the tribe improperly disenrolled Alexander’s extended family because the disenrollments happened after the Nooksack Council failed to hold an election when many of its seats expired.

Because the tribal government lacks quorum, the Department of Interior says, the tribe does not have a government, and the feds aren’t recognizing the disenrollments.

The federal government is now denying Washington’s Nooksack tribe tens of millions of dollars. They’ve shut down the casino and are taking over tribal health care.

REVIEW: Pechanga Crime Family Still SHADY, And UNWORTHY of Pechanga Membership

I'll be away from the computer for a few days, so I want to repost a few items, this one, on the Masiel Basquez Crime Family, I'll add another post on the 4 generation long bad people. SHOULDN'T THIS FAMILY be disenrolled for abuse of Pechanga?

From a couple of years ago...


With the upcoming special meeting called about the Pechanga Band of Luiseno's Casino Investigation coming this Sunday, we reach back toa post from 4 years ago about the CPP not liking Jennie Miranda, whose grandmother was the matriarch of the PCF (Pechanga Crime Family). It's time for the CPP to look within and do waht is right. UPDATE: Questions include: Are the CPP truth tellers, or outrageous liars?
Would they lie about Jennie Miranda and family? Would they lie about the Hunters and Manuela Miranda descendents? Jennie, which one is it? Are they lying about YOU, or about the Hunters, OR BOTH?

The Concerned Pechanga People have been active in getting rid of two large families from Pechanga. But, according to this flyer from 1992, they absolutely DID NOT like some of the people that they subsequently conspired with to remove the Manuela Miranda and Hunter Clans. Here's the flyer:




The CPP accuse Jennie Miranda (former spokeperson for Pechanga and mother of thief Larry Miranda, soon to be indicted) of "being unfair to people" and telling "lies" and wanting to bulldoze sensitive sites and burial grounds. AMAZING that after all this, the CPP would work with Jennie to use her mother AND Frances Miranda to eliminate people.

Does this sound like someone who cares about the tribe, or themselves? CPP, how could you turn on your own people, with people like this?

And Enrollment Committee HOW could you trust people like this? And we all know, Frances hasn't got any nicer with age.
