Money Laundering at Pechanga? Why is the Dept. of Justice Looking?

Checking out the sitemeter for visitors to Original Pechanga's Blog, I was surprised to find the Department of Justice coming to the blog after doing a google search for PECHANGA MONEY LAUNDERING.   Here's how it looked from sitemeter, with extra cells taken out.

Now, what could that be about?   Is the investigation into corruption at Pechanga finally concluding?   Remember when there was an issue at Pechanga with many members claiming a false business through their tax preparer?   We asked a question about mailboxes on the rez a few months ago.....

Developing.......Question:   WHO will throw WHO under the bus?

Its the 14 million that larry miranda took out of the casino its on film on camera those people can go to prison for the cover up.(stupid fucks).Gaming commissioner smoke your ass bitch.

I am certain Larry stole more than 14 million. That is only what can be seen.

Paper trail- How much did he give his mom? Oh, the good S.O.B.

But this is no comparison to the hundreds of millions the Pechanga Government has stolen from its people through illegal disenrollment and moratorium. But there is a common thread… Sovereignty with out check and balances in place = Shield of corruption

Some one from the Pechanga fraction (small minority) of the Temecula Band of Luiseno Mission Indians will come here and say it isn’t so. Like that is truer than me saying YES… he did it!

"Haha pechanga is more powerful then the justice"

If this is the attitude of the people of Pechanga then it is my hope that the DOJ does bring the illegal acts of the tribe to light and it is my hope that wickedness’ and greed that is now a way of life at Pechanga be stopped. This post by anonymous appears to be a taunt at those of us who stand against the philosophy of the current council and supporters of said council. What is so shameful is that it appears that there is no one left with the courage to stand with us, but as long as I breathe I will challenge those who have corrupted the spirit of our people and the memory of our ancestors’. It is for our history and culture that is destroyed by the actions of those who would call themselves Temecula/Pechanga Indians

WELL NOW, LOOK AT WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE PIPE. D.O.J.! I'VE MENTIONED BEFORE THAT THE CORRUPTION CARD WOULD BE PLAYED AGAINST THE DECEITFULL AND CORRUPT "MACARRO CARTEL!" LET US HOPE THAT IT GETS DOWN AND DIRTY FOR MARK'S DAY OF RECONNING IS WAY OVERDUE. BUT THE QUESTION IS, WHO WILL GO DOWN WITH HIM? THOSE THAT I CALL HIS "HENCHMEN." I DARE TO WONDER IF HIS POLITICAL CRONIES, HE IS IN BE WITH, WILL BE BROUGHT OUT INTO THE OPEN FOR ALL TO SEE? OR SOME SORT OF COVERUP? MARK'S POLITICAL POWER HAS BEEN EMBEDED INTO THE FABRIC OF CORRUPTION, SO DEEP, THAT I WONDER HOW THE D.O.J. WILL SORT OUT ALL THE ILLEGAL ENDEAVORS THAT HAS TRANSPIRED AT PECHANGA? AND SEE WHICH SIDE OF THE FENCE THEY DECIDE TO STAND WITH! MAYBE THIS WILL FALL UNDER THE "RICO STATUTE" FOR CORRUPTION AND RACKETEERING? GOD KNOWS THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE OUT THERE TO WARRANT SUCH AN ACTION. QUESTION IS, WILL THE D.O.J. BE FORTHRIGHT IN ITS QUEST TO FINALLY STOP THE ACTIONS OF A CORRUPT TRIBAL LEADER FOR ALL THE SHADDY ACTS THAT (MARK) HAS DONE FOR NOTHING MORE THEN GREED AND POLITICAL POWER? "MONEY LAUNDERING," GOOD PLACE TO START, BUT ONLY THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. THEN START LOOKING AT "BRIBE MONEY" PASSED OUT TO "WHO" AND FOR WHAT? THEN START LOOKING AT CHAIRMAN MARK MACARRO, OF PECHANGA BAND OF LUISENO INDIANS, AND HIS HENCHMEN FOR, YOU GUESSED IT, "TAX EVASION." SOMETHING AL CAPONE WENT DOWN FOR. FOLLOW THE "MONEY TRAIL." DOESN'T THIS MAKE YOU WONDER IF THE "GOVERNMENT(INDIAN AFFAIRS)" HAS HAD THEIR PALMS GREASED SO AS TO TAKE NO ACTION ON MATTERS OF NATIVE AMERICANS RIGHTS? BECAUSE THEY HAVE TURNED A "BLIND EYE" TO ALL THE ILLEGAL ACTS THAT HAS TRANSPIRED WITHIN THE "MACARRO CARTELS" CORRUPT REGIME. WE ALL KNOW "MONEY TALKS!" BUT THE D.O.J HAS THE ABILITY AND MEANS TO ADDRESS THIS TASK, LET US HOPE THEY FINALLY "DO THEIR JOB!" THIS WOULD BE A START IN FIXING WHAT IS TRULEY "BROKEN IN INDIAN COUNTRY!" JUSTICE MAY FINALLY COME TO THE "NATIVE AMERICAN." LETS WAIT AND SEE HOW THIS WILL PLAY OUT, FOR THE AMEICAN INDIAN DESERVES A "FAIR SHAKE."

Haha Pechanga….. Sounds like someone from the Leyva line.
By the way, I have been passing Pechanga Tribal Hall for several weeks and none-of the councils cars were there. Mark and John where are you?
Hey Mark and John aren’t you going to come out to play. Like those stupid people from the Leyva family said “We are not afraid of the D.O.J.” We have Sovereignty, nobody can touch us…STUPID!….Tic Toc Tic Toc.

Does anyone else feel like people on here "cry wolf" all the time and nothing ever happens. Is the goal some type of scare tactic because it just end up being useless nonsense and no one is scared. Also my guess is that the person that posted "Pechanga is more powerful than the DOJ" is not a tribal member. Anyone who thinks that a government within a government, such as a tribe's relationship, the federal government, is stronger than the parent government is dumb.

My thought is, it would be nice to see tribal governments get fixed but posting every other week that "Pechanga's going down, the FBI, CIA, NASA, DOJ, etc. are after them" is ridiculous. This is not to say that the DOJ or other agencies haven't visited this site, just that Pechanga's world is not coming to an end in the near future. The federal government is much more likely surfing sites for tips or building a case against a specific person.

This may be... however, getting a look see from the DOJ or any other federal agency that can choose to look deeper is a PLUS!! right?

After all is said and done there will be accountability for misdeed. First a spark, a fire, and firestorm. We all know the truth about this unfortunate situation. And the truth is worth a 1000 words.

hundreds of millions stolen
civil rights abuse going unchecked
fraud-stealing identity of true Native American
excluding rightful members through moratorium that was put in place so the Enrollment Committee could "catch up"
blocking private citizens from visiting allotment on reservation
embezzlement

This is a list of what we know for certain to be true!

Haha non members need to move on with their lives and let the sun shine on their fair skin.Be happy and thankful for the per capita that you already placed in your bank accounts.Take a towel and wipe away the tears from your faces and move on with your lives.Throwing false lies at the public and making false statements to (Rhinestone Cowboys)will get you nothing.

Imagine having the Garden of Eden in your backyard and watching it disappear, one explosive blast at a time.

Leaders of the Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo Indians say something similar will happen if a proposed Temecula-area quarry is approved in the area where they believe the world began.


(Fuck me sideways)Mark and the race card or green card.

Anonymous said...

I don't know where he gets the idea that the quarry is home to our creation story (unless he some how figures it was one of the places we wandered while in darkness). It is my understanding the Lake Elsinore was the place where we finally entered this world from out of darkness. I'm not 100% sure on this as I am just recalling from memory and the stories I was told.

But I have a feeling that Mark is just making this up, I would rally like to hear an answer to someone requesting an elaboration on his claim... like "Mr. Macarro, can you please amplify on this, Just how did this place fit into the Luiseno creation story?".

Anonymous said...

I assume the basis is that it is right in the middle of the Luiseno ancestral territorial site, and it is the direct path that the Pechanga band would have taken if traveling to the ocean. I would see no reason to think there couldn't be tribal artifacts in that area. Just my opinion.

Do any of the people on here actually want the quarry or are you just arguing to spite the tribe?

'aamokat said...

No, we don't want the quarry either but we find it the height of hyprocrasy for Macarro to even say anything after the Great Oak Ranch fiasco.

Anonymous said...

A little bird told me that Mark and John Macarro, Jenny Miranda, Andy Masiel Sr, Francis Miranda, and Bobby Lemeire have all sold or are selling their houses for huge losses recently.

Are any of them in the process of taking it on the lam and fleeing justice?

Also, how come many of them have been rarely seen around the government center or around town lately?

The hammer coming down or the sh*t hitting the fan, hmmmmmm?

Anonymous said...

Contact Los Angeles Times writer Phil Willon...he has been writing articles regarding the quarry and has printed some quotes that Macarro has been spewing...shed some light to him about the truth and maybe he will start digging around and do a real story....Mark makes it sound like he grew up and lives on the res....which I have read on here that's not the truth....a quote in the article by Mark Macarro says
"we're kind of demanding here that our value system is not going to be trod on any longer"...WTF?...and Macarro complained that many Luisenos sacred sites outside of tribal lands have been lost to development....what about the golf course he had built and for that matter..doesn't that steel and glass Casino mess with Indian land??

Anonymous said...

Hypocrite! Spiritless hollow vulture
playing a role. Values? Nada!

smokeybear said...

MARK MACARRO IS "SPEAKING WITH FORKED TONGUE," "AGAIN!" .... THE QUARRY SITUATION..... HE DID THE SAME WITH THE LAND FOR THE GOLF COURSE. SAYS THAT THERE WSN'T GOING TO BE ANY CHANGE ON THAT LAND AND THEN WENT AND BUILT ON IT. HE DOING THE SAME THING WITH THE QUARRY. HE'S CIRCUMVENTING THE SUBJECT SO AS TO IMPLY NOTHING WILL BE BUILT AND "LOW AND BE HOLD" LATER DOWN THE ROAD...."GUESS WHAT!" THIS IS STANDARD PROCEEDURE FROM THE "MACARRO PLAY BOOK OF DECEPTION." IF YOU LOOK AT MARK'S TRACK RECORD FOR THIS FORM OF "LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH" AND THEN DOWN THE LINE REVERSES HIS POSITION AND DOES IT ANYWAY. YOU CAN NOT "BELIEVE A WORD" THAT CONNIVING, BACK STABBING, SHADDY, AND CORRUPT EXCUSE FOR A TRIBAL LEADER SAYS, AND FOR NOTHING MORE THAN GREED AND MORE POLITICAL POWER. LEST NOT BE FOOLED, FOR HIS INTENTIONS ARE ALWAYS THE SAME.

Is the tribe more powerful that DOJ? Possibly. The recent attacks against conservatives -- ie, Sen. Ted Stevens, DeLay, Abramoff -- which were rife with prosecutorial misconduct -- emanated from corrupt, but powerful interests within Indian Country. Tribal interests were essentially able to the DOJ to secure wrongful convictions. Do you not think they could also squash legitimate investigations?

With all of the billions of dollars flowing through the tribes into the federal government and related interests, the corrupt interests rule -- and use the agencies, like the DOJ, to protect their empires and investigate innocent people who get in their way.

Indian tribes were built on taxpayer dollars -- the federal government has a vested interest in perpetuating the corrupt status quo.

I don't know if there is a connection, but Blagojevich fell under criminal investigation once he tried to force MGM to pay millions of dollars in back taxes, and the Mashpee Chief fell under criminal investigation after the tribe received the green light for a billion dollar casino. Once the investigation got underway, the previous developer was kicked out and MGM moved in.

When corporate interests can instigate federal corruption investigations, I imagine that they could stop them just as easily.

I do see Congressman Dale Kildee's early retirement as a good sign, however.

THANKS SUSAN. YOU BROUGHT UP A GOOD POINT. I DO QUESTION WHETHER....OR NOT....THE GOVERNMENT(INDIAN AFFAIRS) HAS BEEN CORRUPTED BY THESE DECEITFULL AND GREEDY TRIBAL LEADERS. GOD KNOWS THAT THEIR "SUPPOSED" INABILITY TO RIGHT WHAT IS BROKEN IN INDIAN COUNTRY IS LAME AT BEST. RUMOR HAS IT THAT THEIR "PALMS" ARE BEING GREASED BY THESE UNJUST TRIBES SO AS TO KEEP THEIR ILLEGAL, AND CORRUPT ENDEAVORS IN LIMBO. WITH INACTION COMES "OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND." MONEY TALKS, AND IT IS A REASONABLE ASSUMPTION TO BELIEVE THAT THIS IS SO. CAN ANYONE TELL ME "ONE" THING THAT THE "GOVERNMENT(INDIAN AFFAIRS) HAS DONE TO PROMOTE JUSTICE WITHIN INDIAN COUNTRY, OR FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN? I THINK NOT. TRIBAL LEADERS MAKE IT AS THEY GO WITH CORRUPTION, GREED AND POLITICAL POWER AS THEIR MAIN AGENDA AND THE GOVERNMENT(INDIAN AFFAIRS) TURNS ITS USUAL "BLIND EYE." "CAN'T SAY IT ANY PLAINER THAN THAT."

Again Pechanga council another month without a tribal meeting. What is the council afraid of maybe how did John Macarro have a tribal credit card to use for personal use? He does not have an elected position and why is he not fired for abuse of tribal money. Then john and Mark Macarro sold there million dollar homes at a lost. When asked John Macarro said because per cap has went down. Now as far as I know per cap has not went down unless john knows that it’s going down and their not tell the members about it. Now john Owens three million dollar homes as far as I know not many members own million dollar homes lest of three of them. John’s wife is not a member but she work at the government center that must be it. First holly now John wife. Then there the question of how john is the head of Pechanga legal council and he doesn’t have a license to practice law in California.

RUMOR HAS IT THAT "LARRY ECHOHAWK" OF THE B.I.A. IS NOTHING MORE THAN A "PUPPET ON A STRING" FOR THE CORRUPT TRIBAL LEADERS IN INDIAN COUNTRY. PULL HIS STRING AND HE DANCES TO THE BEAT OF THEIR DRUMS. HE DOES NOTHING TO FIX WHAT IS BROKEN WITH REGARDS TO NATIVE AMERICAN RIGHTS. WE, THE OPPRESSED, HAVE REPEATEDLY ASKED FOR AND AUDIENCE TO DISCUSS THE BLATANT DISREGARD OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AND HE HAS DONE NOTHING BUT TURNED A "BLIND EYE" TO ALL OF OUR REQUESTS. HE HAS TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON, BUT CHOOSES TO SIDE WITH CORRUPT TRIBAL LEADERS. "OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND!" INACTION TO OUR PLIGHT IS "STATIS QUO!" I GUESS HE DOESN'T WHAT TO UPSET THE "APPLECART," AND ANGER THE TRIBAL LEADERS THAT, "MAYBE," ARE GREASING HIS PALM! FOR, YOU SEE, THERE IS NO MONEY IN HELPING THE OPPRESSED INDIAN. JUSTICE MEANS NOTHING TO HIM. WHAT'S IN IT FOR HIM? THAT SEEMS TO BE ALL THAT MATTERS. HE OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T CARE ABOUT WHAT IS RIGHT IN INDIAN COUNTRY. HE SEEMS TO LET THE "TRIBAL LEADERS MAKE IT UP AS THEY GO" NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT HURTS THE TRUE NATIVE AMERICAN, AND THEN BACKS THEIR PLAY. THAT HAS TO BE CORRUPTION AND GREED AT ITS "BEST." IF THIS IS TRUE, THE OPPRESSED TRUE NATIVE AMERICAN WILL NEVER GET A FAIR SHAKE FROM THE "GOVERNMENT(INDIAN AFFAIRS). IS THAT PLAIN ENOUGH?

will the DOJ be able to prove RICO violations based on:

"Here’s something to think about. The Leyva line that’s Raymond sr, Jr and Rita Basquez all with criminal records now. Raymond sr sister Irene the one that forge records at the B.I.A in riverside. Ronnie Rivera a sex offender and his sister yolie Rivera. The Leyva line has been proven to have forge there papers to claim not only native status but another family’s allotment. This has been one of the family’s that have been heading up disenrollment of true natives and tribal members. Now there’s Ruth masiel, jenny Miranda and Andrew Miranda let’s not forget little Larry the other family that started the disenrollment. When Ruth was a child she was orphaned and the salasars took her in. now if she was orphaned how can she prove her native ties to the tribe little alone to the Leyva line. Without a birth certificate how does she prove her ties to Pechanga or the Leyva line now I have been told they did find her birth certificate but had it sealed. Why would they do that unless it proves she not even native American?"

allegations, but worth investigating to find the truth.
