SAND CREEK, on the southeastern Colorado plains, was the site of a terrible massacre of 163 helpless Cheyenne women and children by Colorado militia troops in 1864. That site was purchased Thursday, April 25, by Jim Druck, a mega-buck casino operator. We can call it ‘blood money,’ in a sense.
In July 1998, Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Northern Cheyenne) ordered the National Park Service to ascertain the exact location of the site of the massacre (apparently still in question). Then they named it the "Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site."
So who owned it before April 25? William Dawson, a retired judge, and third generation ‘rancher.’ The massacre site is supposedly on his 1,465-acre ranch. The U.S. government has bought acres from other land owners, but Dawson’s ranch is rumored to be the heart of the site, 150 miles southeast of Denver. The national site may eventually reach 12,500 acres. We can call that another Clinton-style ‘land grab.’
All parties hail the wonderful prospects. The Indian leaders, U.S. government reps, and the casino syndicate all formally closed the deal at Uncle Sam’s Casino in Cripple Creek on Saturday night (April 27). Jim Druck, president of Southwest Entertainment, Inc. (Minneapolis), bought Dawson’s land for $1.5 million. Considering the billions of dollars in potential gaming on such a site, we can call that chicken feed.
Druck says the land will be "given" to the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. Of course, Druck has had a casino management agreement with these tribes for ten years. He operates their tribal casino already. He’s been after Sand Creek for some time. Robert P. Tabor, chairman of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes, thinks the deal benefits everyone. Call that sweet.
Old Judge Dawson says, "This is a win-win situation for everyone…I couldn’t be happier." Sen. Campbell marveled that a non-Indian "group of people would front that much money to buy back some Indian land. I think this is great."
I call that suspicious.
On April 18 I wrote an article called "Indians, Politics, and Money," in which I revealed part of the grand profit schemes behind the Indian land/casino issues. Indian "sovereignty" is being used as a pretense for DNC and Clinton cartel members to move in and set up rackets.
But Bush’s new appointment to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Neal McCaleb, also thinks casinos are "very beneficial," so that may merit suspicion of GOP figures too, like Sen. Campbell.
I cited the Upstate Citizens for Equality as a source of info on the ills of casino industries, but I’m afraid even they have missed the real issue. The deeper crisis has been brought out by ongoing investigations of the Executive Intelligence Review (EIR). In the January 15, 1993 issue, Phillip Valenti said it’s all about global money laundering, international drugs and weapons trafficking, prostitution, pornography, or "Dope, Inc."
Valenti says "the organized crime takeover of Indian reservations in the United States is already well advanced," and its "part of a larger scheme to force legalized casino gambling through state legislatures everywhere."
Valenti offers exotic lists of people, like John Philip Nichols (CIA), Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI.), Sidney Yates (D-Ill.), Michael Riconosciuto, Paul Morasca, Shabtai Kalmanowitch, Minnesota Attorney General Hubert Humphrey, and Anti-Defamation League’s Burton Joseph as players. Valenti cites the playing fields too, like specific Indian reservations, and how they were surreptitiously "invaded" by players from South Africa, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, and Britain.
Saudis have been involved in Connecticut’s Mashantucket casino (Foxwoods), as well as Malaysians. This was well publicized in the Harford Courant (1994).
All international crooks, including Americans, want to exploit the Indian "sovereignty" situation, because on reservations casino industries are free from government regulation.
So, when a big time casino operator like Jim Druck buys "sacred" Indian land to "give" to Indians whose casinos he already runs, how obvious can it be? An Indian senator (Campbell), a judge/land owner (Dawson), and a casino operator (Druck), together spell a simple formula for profit. I call it fraud.
The UCE attests profits don’t go to Indian people, but only to a relatively few leaders. Indian "sovereignty" becomes prostituted and anti-American. Indian reservations become havens for international thugs who create criminal states of tyranny and human degradation.
There’s no achievement of economic independence for the tribes in this. It’s a sell-out to vice. Call it an offer our leaders "can’t refuse."
Let’s see just how "sacred" Sand Creek becomes.
