President Trump Disrespects Agua Caliente

Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians Tribal Chairman Jeff L. Grubbe spoke against President Donald Trump's desert visit, citing a lack of respect shown by the President against the tribe.

"I try not to get political on Social Media, it's ugly enough out there, but I wouldn't be much of a Tribal leader if I didn't express my disappointment about the lack of respect President Trump has shown my tribe," Grubbe wrote.

Grubbe continued, "Not only did he land Air Force One on Tribal lands, but he drove by our Government building, and we were not shown the respect/honor to welcome him on our lands. Take all the politics out of it, the lack of respect is disappointing."

PALA WATCH: Who is Robert Smith, PALA's Current Chairman Is THIS GUY

Pala's porcine "leader", Robert Smith is profiled by our friends at PALA WATCH follow their blog for information on the corruption.

President Trump Pardons Navajo Mother, Crystal Munoz after 12 Years


Crystal Munoz was found guilty in 2008 of conspiring to possess with intent to distribute marijuana, according to a petition filed by the Criminal Defense Clinic at the Texas A&M University School of Law.

Ms. Munoz, who was sentenced to nearly two decades in prison, drew a map that her friends used in a large marijuana trafficking operation, according to Rolling Stone.

Crystal Munoz was found guilty of conspiring to possess with intent to distribute marijuana back in 2008 - when her oldest daughter Sarai was only 5 months old and youngest daughter Nova wasn't even born yet.

The girls have never known a life with their mother at home.

"I mean we've been through so much. The heartache, the pain, the anger," Crystal's husband, Ricky Munoz said. "You know especially seeing my daughters like that."

Over the past 12 years, Ms. Munoz has mentored people and volunteered with a hospice program while serving in prison, according to the White House statement.
