Subject: Thank you for co-sponsoring the DISCLOSE Act!
 
 

Dear Cynthia,

If we can pass the DISCLOSE Act, we can bring new accountability and protections to our elections.

If we can't, corporations -- including foreign ones -- will have nearly free rein to spend money in U.S. elections without disclosure.

To make sure we pass this important legislation, it's absolutely crucial that we continue building support outside Washington.

Please forward your friends and family the message below and ask them to join you as co-sponsors of the DISCLOSE Act.

Thanks again for joining us,


Chuck Schumer
U.S. Senator
Russ Feingold
U.S. Senator
Patrick Leahy
U.S. Senator

 



Dear Friend,

In January, the Supreme Court strengthened corporations' grip on our government and political process with a dangerous ruling, overturning more than 100 years of election law.

We are part of a group of senators fighting to rein in the increased influence of special interest money this decision will unleash and save our electoral process.

To combat the new, unregulated corporate influence over elections, we just unveiled the DISCLOSE Act -- because Democracy Is Strengthened by Casting Light On Spending in Elections.

But without your support, our legislation is never going to win the day -- we need to build support all around the country, and we need your help to do it.

Click here to go to our website, www.DISCLOSEact.com, and sign on as a citizen co-sponsor of this important legislation!

As President Obama has said, the Supreme Court has given "a green light to a new stampede of special interest money."

But this decision doesn't just affect elections. It has the potential to change the very way we live in America.

Think about it: When you buy toothpaste now, the money you spend can be used directly for television ads attacking people that you believe in without you even knowing.

We have to respond.

We all have to get in this battle, and we all have to fight it from every angle.

Find out more about the DISCLOSE Act at www.DISCLOSEact.com and sign on as a citizen co-sponsor today!

To rein in the new powers the Supreme Court has given corporations to spend unlimited funds to influence elections, we have come up with a package of reforms that should greatly limit the damage:

 

  • Make CEOs and other leaders take responsibility for their ads by appearing on-camera to deliver the same "I approved this message" disclaimer that political candidates must make.
  • Enhance funding disclosures so the American people can follow the money.
  • Keep foreign countries and entities from determining the outcome of our elections.
  • Alert shareholders and group members to where money goes.
  • Keep taxpayer money from being spent on political ads.
  • Keep special interests from drowning out the voices of the people.
  • Make sure corporations can't "sponsor" a candidate.


If you don't want to see corporations start running away with our elections, then we need you to step up and join us.

Your co-sponsorship will help us pass this crucial bill -- add your name at www.DISCLOSEact.com now!

Thanks for your support -- together, we can do this.

Sincerely,


Chuck Schumer
U.S. Senator
Russ Feingold

MOST IMPORTANT THAT UNITED KINGDOM AND USA CITIZENS WATCH

There are some things that they just do not include into the history books but they should. I can not speak for the UK citizens but I know this is something not being taught in our schools, if it is, a small note tucked in somewhere.

Unless you really go digging around then you will find these stories, if your a history buff, or stumble upon these things by accident. Maybe we heard of Islanders being removed, but how many go beyond that, what does it mean.

How well known was this or is this in the UK? I do not recall hearing this at all being spoken in the USA....of coarse during this time, VietNam filled our airways and lives, and these current events mentioned in the film are not spoken of in the USA....those who live in the UK, does your news cover it well?

To really know what happens to these people and many times we are told, if we do know about it at all, that they left their homes happily to serve the greater good and were compensated greatly for the removal. 

But was it even for the greater good? How does their being removed from their homes still affect not only them, but others who live in the world?

Thank you Pamylle for posting the story concerning a petition. I'm now also posting the video of and for itself. Her link to the petition and other information is: http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/1369372

This knowledge should be shared and we need to remember that what happens to others does indeed have bearing upon us all. This is so tragic and is shameful to those of us who live in both the USA and the United Kingdom....for we can't say this is ancient history, this happened on our watch!

In Peace, Dandelion

Focus:Indigenous Rights Action Request:Write Letters, E-mail, Call or anything that you can do.
Location:California, United States

PLEASE PASS THIS FORWARD - DECEMBER 16, 2009

Once again, we are being threatened with a forced eviction due to the Department of the Interior/Bureau of Indian Affairs ineptness of actions to do anything to assist or protect our Tribe. The governments’ failure or intentional lagging to correct the abuses and inflictions caused to our Tribe by the corruption within the local BIA's Central California Agency and Superintendent Troy Burdick who is personally working with and allowing outside influences to viciously attack and interfere into our Tribal Affairs is now on the brink of causing more serious concerns.

We have continued to forward documented factual information (including the criminal histories of the individuals plotting against us) to the BIA/Dept. of the Interior and our local elected officials, and they still have not stepped in to stop the continued criminal actions (fraud and identity theft) being perpetrated by Chadd Everone and his phony group. Mr. Everone continues to mislead government, court, and other agency officials to believe that he and his attorneys represent our Tribe.

We need your support. We need our story to be put out all across America and abroad. All those who can help us get justice, please come forward. Call your friends, Tribes (recognized or not), Universities, Veterans, Students, Elected Officials, and anyone who can step up and stand with us to get the government to take notice of the hardships and emotional suffering that is being cast upon our Tribe and its members Due to our local Governor, Congressman, Senators, Assemblymembers, etc… turning a blind-eye to our cries for justice, we are now asking you (the Public) to contact your Congressional representatives, Senators, and Assemblymembers, etc… to help us.

We are requesting that all people who know what its like to have an injustice done to you and who can remember how it felt for people to walk away without helping, or for those who had been wrongly accused and had to stand alone and fight through the tears and frustration to be ridiculed and finally justified in the end when the truth came out in the open, you are the ones that we are asking to step up and help us.

Please send letters, faxes, and or emails to your elected officials, and also leave voice messages regarding how appalled you are about the Bureau of Indian Affairs allowing such abuses to happen to a federally recognized Tribe, for this has gone on (years) too long!!! Do not allow the lies of Chadd Everone and his Gaming Developers (financial backers) to continue to cover up the truth of what they have been doing to destroy us. Demand that an investigation be set forth.

Appointed and elected officials get paid by our tax dollars to protect their citizens. Why is it that they have deaf ears to our situation? Is it because we are Native American Indians? Is it because they just don’t care? The last I remember, identity theft and fraud was illegal in this country, so then, why isn’t Chadd Everone not in jail? Is the Government waiting for one of us, or all of us (in the Tribe) to be seriously or fatally injured? What is going to happen on January 15th 2010 when the Sheriff’s department comes in to force the Tribe and its members out into the street? Will the American Indian Movement come to stand with us? Will the college and university students come to stand with us? Will our local community stand with us? The system of law and righteousness has failed us. Please help us !!

Again and again, we’ve tried to negotiate, we’ve tried the courts, we’ve tried to be patient but unfortunately words don’t pay the bills. One West Bank wants to get paid. WE WANT TO GET PAID!!! THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE REASON FOR THE CALIFORNIA GAMBLING CONTROL COMMISSION TO WITHHOLD OUR RSTF MONEY!!!! NOR IS THERE ANY LEGITIMATE REASON FOR THE LOCAL CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AGENCY/BIA TO WITHHOLD OUR MATURE STATUS 638 CONTRACT!!!THEREFOR E WE “THE TRIBE” ARE ASKING YOU “THE PUBLIC” TO DEMAND THAT OUR FUNDS BE RELEASED!! DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION INTO THE CRIMINAL ACTIONS OF THE LOCAL BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS/CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AGENCY, SUPERINTENDENT TROY BURDICK, REGARDING HIS WORKING WITH CHADD EVERONE AGAINST OUR TRIBE. The truth is in the files, all one has to do is investigate! !!

“Chadd Everone” (who is a non- Indian and is not in any way associated with our Tribe, other than trying his best to steal it) has an agenda to cinch his Gaming Agreement with Albert D. Seeno, to build “the Biggest Casino in Northern California” but to do that, he must replace us with his phony group.

We the California Valley Miwok Tribe are asking all of you out there, to please make the calls, write the letters, emails, blogs, twitter messages, radio and tv announcements. Contract your friends, if anyone knows of any actors who are willing to help us get justice, any one who has influence in the media whether it be youtube, rez radio, newsletters, newspapers, banners, flyers, one-liners…. Anything helps!!

While (as another year is set to pass), once again, Government Officials (Bureau Officials included), etc… are readying themselves for the holidays!! Again, they have NO TIME for our concerns, our fears, our cries or our suffering, or our REALITY!!!. SCROOGE IS ALIVE AND WELL . . . WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

For more information on how to help the Tribe, please contact us at the Tribal office at 209.931.4567 or by fax 209.931.4333 or you may contact the Tribal attorneys at Rosette & Associates, PC at 480-889-8990.

IT SHOULD BE THE GUILTY BEING PUNISHED . . . .. NOT THE INNOCENT!!!

Put yourself in our place and think about how you’d feel if you were the one that was quiet and shy and had a bully constantly abusing you. Please make a difference, make the contacts, get President Obama’s attention… let him know that you want change, and that the American public supports the rights of the Native American Indians. Let him know that the California Valley Miwok Tribe needs him to step in and save it from being destroyed due to the lack of action(s) by appointed and/or elected officials who are either unwilling or unable to step up and do their job to protect this Tribe from those individuals who are causing the “Tribe” GREAT harm by using illegal tactics such as identity theft and fraud to discredit it, destroy it financially, and leave us homeless and without any recourse to defend ourselves.

I received this link from Political Watch Dog, Its very improtant that we watch out for people who want to medicate our children for their own gain and not because the child has real problems.  We have become a society that rushes to drug our children when they may not need to be. Allot of these drugs can cause serious problems and even suicide for children that don't need them and in some cause even in children who do.  Please watch video.
 
Dear PoliticalWatchdog.com Member:
 
Please send this video link to family and friends, especially those with children in public schools. TeenScreen may be coming to their school this year and they need to have this information before it's too late.
