MABUHAY RADIO and the Media Breakfast Club, THANK YOU on behalf of over 3,000 Native Americans who have been disenrolled by their tribes, so that the remaining members can become even richer!


We will prepare a third article about the fight against the obvious discriminatory practice of the Pechanga ruling clique in ousting many of its long-time members. We are finishing the research and perhaps with its release, we will begin a Filipino-led boycott of the Pechanga casino. We compare the said discriminatory practice to Hitler's Aryan-Race policy. You may be able to read more information about the issues mentioned in this e-mail at

Pechanga is so sure its above the law, that it has went ahead and started to install up to 500 class III machines and another 500 on there way. This is before the Febuary ballots, and California has had its say. Pechanga feels that even if Prop 94 is voted down, they will have the courts to fall back on and keep the machines.
