Sen. Dianne Feinstein OPPOSES Enterprise Rancheria Casino, But for the Wrong Reasons. Barbara Boxer also Silent on Civil Rights Issues In Indian Country

Senator Feinstein should oppose this casino because Enterprise Rancheria has violated the civil rights of it's own people and because they are not good citizens. If they cheat their own people, like other tribes such as Pechanga, Redding, Picayune do here in CA, won't they cheat their customers? We wrote about Senator Feinstein’s bill here Our Senator's Feinstein and Barbara Boxer have been sadly silent on the civil rights issue.

"The Department of Interior's conclusion that the proposed casinos enjoy 'strong community support' is simply false," she wrote in the letter. "Of the 21 local officials polled by the Department of the Interior on the Yuba Casino, only one (Yuba County) supported the project ..."

Feinstein also noted a 2005 advisory vote in Yuba County in which 52 percent opposed the casino, and the 2000 statewide proposition giving the OK to Indian casinos referred to them being on Indian lands.

The Yuba County casino and another one she opposes in Madera County are being built outside those lands, she wrote. Enterprise Rancheria, based in Oroville, has said Yuba County was part of its ancestral tribal area.

With 67 new casinos since 2000, Feinstein also said in the letter, California is significantly saturated.

Among those Feinstein listed as locals opposed to the casino is Supervisor Roger Abe, who said he hopes the letter carries weight with Brown.

"I'm not sure what's going to have the biggest influence on Gov. Brown," he said, adding that 60 percent of voters in his district, which includes Wheatland and the casino site, opposed it in the 2005 vote.

Others listed as opposing the casino are former supervisor and now-Assemblyman Dan Logue and Supervisor Andy Vasquez.

First: The part of Yuba County that they want was NEVER their ancestral grounds.
Second: Enterprise Rancheria is run by a bunch of lying and corrupt QUASI Indians who denied civil and ancestral rights to those they disenrolled, much like Pechanga did.
Third: Senators Boxer and Feinstein, and I quote, "do not interfere in Tribal matters because that should be the job of the Bureau of Indian Affairs" so we where told in their answers to all of our letters that we send to them. In those letters we described in detail the corruptive doings at the Pechanga Reservation run by the Dictator Mark Macarro.
Fourth: Gov. Brown is a Puppet who dances to whoever dangles his strings.

Sitting on one's hands does not make for a good legacy Senators, not where human and civil rights are being violated.

How'd you side on South African Apartheid? Was it a government matter?

Boxer and Feinstein won't even venture into "Human Rights Violations" on California's Indian Reservations because they are "Paid Not Too!" Why would they! You have got to know that Pechanga, alone, has bolstered their Cal-der-ons so that they become nothing more then "Puppets On A Sting" and "Dance to the Beat Of Their(Casino Indians) Drums. Pull their string and they dance. Again why wouls they "Bite the Hand that Feeds them?" I call it "Taking a Bribe!"...
Bribery, a form of corruption, is an act implying money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient. Bribery constitutes a crime and is defined by Black's Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty.

The bribe is the gift bestowed to influence the recipient's conduct. It may be any money, good, right in action, property, preferment, privilege, emolument, object of value, advantage, or merely a promise or undertaking to induce or influence the action, vote, or influence of a person in an official or public capacity.
You have got to know that these two(2) Political Hacks, and others, routinely take money from Indian Tribes so as to do the bidding of same! So as you can see, they don't have to help the "Oppressed Native American:" "There is no Money in it!"
