I wonder if the general council of the tribe were informed that they were paying $100,000 to the convention fund...AND and additional $43,900 to the ...BUILDING FUND? BUILDING WHAT? THIS APPEARS to be a way to circumvent donation cap rules, an FEC violation
On May 19, Justin Klein of HillaryClinton.com emailed Jordan Kaplan, national finance director of the DNC. Klein had a check for $144,100 from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians. He told Kaplan, “please note the first $100,200 should be allocated to the convention fund, while the remaining $43,900 should be allocated to the building fund.”
According to FEC (Federal Election Commission) rules, $100,200 is the campaign contribution limit for nonmulticandidate PACs in a single year. The email suggests Klein, on behalf of HillaryClinton.com, may have been trying to circumvent that limit. If true, it would constitute an offense
UPDATE: SOURCES say...NO vote on this expenditure before the General Council.
Tribal contributions discussed in the emails below:
WikiLeaks - Tribe Donations by TWOLFSPIRIT on Scribd
We saw with dismay how easily the DNC and Hillary Clinton take money from a Tribe that practices APARTHEID on it's reservation, and is well known for violating the rights of it's people.
I wrote to Howard Dean prior to the 2008 convention about Pechanga chairman Mark Macarro's inclusion on the platform committee. Apparently, if you have money, there's a blind eye turned....
I'll print a response.....
When corruption is at the top, it usually follows on down the line. Sad. It is all about the money, not because they have passion for their cause, they just have greed for power and money.
Does it disturb anyone to hear that Russia is taking sides in this election? We know the Wikie guy has sold out to the Russians and they are just using his name to help Trump. It seems too convenient that these emails were made public just before the convention. This brings up the question of what kind of ties does Trump have with Russia. Talk about corruption Trump is not innocent not is he an angel.
But why blame Hillary? It is the DNC...doubt very much Hillary even sees the contribution info. I know you seem to blame the Democrats for all of the tribal issues, but a lot of this went down during the Republican administration.....isnt it more Bushes fault? And Trump ran the Indian Casinos into the ground when he had his name attached, do you really think he will help you at all? In fact he doesnt even think tribes should have casinos,....he thinks it's unfair. So good luck with him.
So the next question to ask is why the Russians would rather have Donald Trump as president than Hillary Clinton. The answer may lie in Clinton's stint as Secretary of State where she foolishly challenged the fairness of Russian elections and offended Vladimir Putin. Apparently Hillary Clinton is a proponent of regime change in Russia which undermines any kind of a relationship with the current regime.
Clinton was an absolute failure as Secretary of State. She hung allies Poland and the Czech Republic out to dry by cancelling interceptor missile deployments in those nations leaving them holding the bag for agreeing to house these missiles to which the Russians were opposed. This was done as part of the Russian Reset during which Russia has violated test nuclear test ban treaties, crack down on domestic dissent, invaded Crimea, criminalized homosexuality, and sent nuclear bombers on sorties off the U.S. mainland.
The entire relationship between Russia and the U.S. has been mismanaged to the point that the Russians have been rewarded for aggressive expansion while the U.S. has sat idly by and watched. Then Putin accuses the U.S. of interfering with the Russian economy by providing aid to the Ukraine and gains support for his policies. All the while China has perceived weakness in American policy and has aggressively expanded its military presence in the South China Sea. This is in direct affront to the Asia Pivot policy of strengthening U.S. Military presence in Asia which didn't happen because defense budgets have been slashed and resources diverted to the Middle East.
Clinton also failed to negotiate a State of Forces agreement with Iraq which led to a withdrawal of troops and enabled the expansion of ISIS, allowed Iranian forces to gain influence in Iraq. The U.S. failed to support Syrian rebels who turned to jihadists in their fight against Syrian and President Assad. The civil war in Syria in turn has created a huge refugee problem, and allowed ISIS to to form a Caliphate.
Clinton also failed in Egypt where she called for the resignation of President Mubarak, which enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain political power as Mohamed Morsi was elected and imposed an Islamist agenda.
I could go on, but you get the picture. Clinton was a failure as Secretary of State. U.S. foreign policy during the Obama administration has a been a disaster and Clinton was a large part of the problem. Not to mention the eight billion dollars that are missing, and the abuse of security protocols for classified email messages.
Rickie Wilson wasn't given a letter at all . The letter wasn't sent and asked him if he wanted to returned to the tribe. The 72 members were Dis Enrolled for signing a RECALL PETITION! Not a Dis Enrollment petition! Now the ones that were up for RECALL STILL SET ON TRIBAL COUNCIL ! Lets don't confuse their big hearts with corruption and greed ! After they Dis Enrolled the the 72 members they went out to a bar and celebrated about their good deeds ! My mother died from stress that was inflicted by them! One of the councilmembers at that time said it was funny and laughed about it! I am MAIDU INDIAN and I don't need a CASINO to declare my Heritage !
July 27, 2016 at 6:09 PM; I am sorry to hear this about how you and your family were treated. These so called Indians have never known what it means to be homiest and upright. Even when confronted with the truth they choose the lie. One day they will stand before the great white throne and they well have to answer for the way they treated their brother. It is the intention of the heart that will be judged. We Apis know those who are of Pechanga will face the same judgement. They laugh at us and ridicule us, but in the end they will have to answer for these hurtful deeds.
Everyone should feel obligated to vote, even if it is felt that both have problems then therefore you vote for the lesser of two evils. These votes determine how we direct our country. Though some in this country shouldn't deserve to vote as the term educated voter tends to not exist so much anymore. Not surprised to see the DNC in bed with the big profit casinos. But to say Hillary has no idea of where money is coming from then whoever wrote at 1:49pm July 26th is an idiot. If things need to change in our country then how have they not changed during the last 8 years?
Ummm, I reread my post and don't see where it says Hillary has no idea of where money is coming from. I did say that the State Department has an 8 billion dollar shortfall according to the GAO (General Accounting Office). If that sounds like the words of an idiot, so be it. You can verify if you know how to do it.
This is great
