Casino Trump had no problems with Casino Indians

As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

The following is about the degradation of the American Indian, being forced by John McCain and Joe Lieberman gambling mafia backers into the casino racket to raise money for their monetary needs.

In Wisconsin, there is another Trump scandal brewing as two Indians tribes are now at war over a Mohican tribe which is utilizing part of their earnings to care for their poor and elderly, is about to be driven out of existence by another tribe in the Ho Chuck Nation.

At 85, Betty Putnam-Schiel has trouble standing, but she gets along well enough in her home on the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans' northern Wisconsin reservation thanks to tribal assistants who do everything from shovel her snow to change her lightbulbs.
But maybe not for much longer. Another tribe, the Ho-Chunk Nation, is expanding its nearby casino into a full-fledged resort that would rival the Stockbridge-Munsee's own casino, threatening the gambling revenue that supports services like Putnam-Schiel's helpers.

What is interesting in these monopoly interests was the Ho Chuck deliberately before moving ahead, contacted the Trump Trans, and inquired if they were going to be shut down on this infringement on the Wisconsin tribe. The Trump Trans green lighted the poaching as this infringement which would drive this smaller tribe out of existence was perfectly alright with them.

Before of its meeting with Bureau Of Indian Affairs early last month, the Ho-Chunk Nation Of Wisconsin reportedly requested that Beloit officials and state legislators reaffirm their support for the new casino project and help to line up the Midwestern state’s Congressional delegation behind the plan. This resulted in Wisconsin State Assembly members Amy Loudenbeck and Mark Spreitzer urging United States House Of Representatives member Mark Pocan and United States Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin to continue to support the development, which would head to the desk of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker for approval if passed at the federal level.
“We wanted to give [the Ho-Chunk Nation Of Wisconsin] our full support on this and we are hoping for cooperation from all sides,” Dave Luebke, President for the Beloit City Council, told the Beloit Daily News.
At its meeting with the Bureau Of Indian Affairs, the Ho-Chunk Nation Of Wisconsin was reportedly told that its plan for a Beloit casino, which would sit less than 80 miles from the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, would not face any plan-specific administrative setbacks from a Trump administration although it would have to be approved by the incoming United States Secretary Of The Interior, which could take up to a year.

This is most interesting in the Ho Chunk were very leary of Donald Trump, but somewhere in Trump Trans discovered an ally who was going to champion them.

They’ve found reason to cheer in Trump’s pick to lead the Department of Interior, Ryan Zinke, a Republican congressman from Montana who’s pledged to “restore trust” between the agency, the states and Indian tribes.
“Yes, we are looking for ways to partner. Now, do we have assumptions because he’s been in battles with other tribes? Sure, and we’re looking to clarify those assumptions,” says Gary Batton, chief of the roughly 200,000-member Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. “Is he open to considering that each tribal government is its own separate entity and unique? That’s the way we’re approaching this.”

And why would the Indians be leary of Donald Trump? Because when Donald Trump was putting the Trump Brand on casinos, his main competitors were Indian casinos backed by John McCain and Joe Lieberman and the casino mafia, which almost destroyed the Trump gambling interests and bankrupted his efforts.

So it returns to who it would be in Trump Trans who was green lighting all of this Indian predation.

The again a little money buys a great deal of allegiance in some politicians. It is why Christians fare so badly in the Trump Administration as they are barren of mammon.

Report: Pence Signed Tax Bill After Taking $2M From Indiana ...

Despite Gov. Mike Pence's pledge to oppose expanding Indiana's gambling industry, gaming interests donated more than $2 million to groups supporting the current ...

Then again, perhaps Mike Pence was not alone, and it was those in the tribes who saw a better wampum appearing in the smoke signals coming not from Donald Trump, but the advisors surrounding Donald Trump from the Republican insiders.

Now, a group of advisors to President-elect Donald Trump on Native American issues wants to free those resources from what they call a suffocating federal bureaucracy that holds title to 56 million acres of tribal lands, two chairmen of the coalition told Reuters in exclusive interviews.
The group proposes to put those lands into private ownership - a politically explosive idea that could upend more than century of policy designed to preserve Indian tribes on U.S.-owned reservations, which are governed by tribal leaders as sovereign nations. 

"We should take tribal land away from public treatment," said Markwayne Mullin, a Republican U.S. Representative from Oklahoma and a Cherokee tribe member who is co-chairing Trump’s Native American Affairs Coalition. "As long as we can do it without unintended consequences, I think we will have broad support around Indian country."
Trump’s transition team did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

And who should be leading all of this, but the George W. Bush insiders, which had absolutely no problem with this Indian "free market" rapine in a modern day tribal warfare of this degrading lucre which the Indian tribes across America are preying on Americans and being exploited by mafia interests.

Held the day before the inauguration, the five-hour summit in Arlington, Virginia was a follow-up to a December 14 tribal transition meeting. The Trump transition team was represented by former Department of the Interior chief of staff in the George W. Bush administration Doug Domenech; former solicitor of Interior in the Bush administration David Bernhardt; and Alaskan Native Jerry Ward, the designated tribal transition liaison to Indian country who expressed interest in December in having a role on Indian affairs in the Trump administration. The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) sponsored the gathering.

Other hot topics included Indian gaming, water safety and land use. Given Trump’s past negative statements on Indian gaming, tribes are in a wait-and-see mode, but with the market saturated, and only 25 percent of tribes involved in gaming, concerns center around Internet and sports gaming and how tribal exclusivity agreements will be interpreted.

You see the buck stops at Donald Trump. The honeymoon of making excuses for him are long passed when he began breaking his promises to American Mothers whose children have been murdered by these Mexicans that Mr. Trump is now so fond of. What we have here is a case of someone in Trump Trans promised this predatory expansion on a tribe in Wisconsin of one people against another, and odds are as we become aware that simmering beneath this is creating little fiefdoms of coal, natural gas and oil oligarchs of Indians, which will benefit the feudal few at Wall Street in the appearances of the Kushners and Gary Cohn, it is understandable that it is about a better cut the Ho Chunks are giving someone in the Trump interests than the Mohicans can.

All an old Mohican woman wants is have her snow shoveled and now someone is taking that away from her and it is in another Trump Brand mess taking promises from other Americans.

Nuff Said
