Jacqueline Keeler's curator insight, August 9, 8:19 PM

WikiLeaks has released documents revealing corporate and government surveillance of the Mohawk people’s relationships with foreign countries, as well as evidence that movements that could block corporate plans for oil and gas were tracked and that Native American communities were monitored for the U.S. Department Homeland Security.

Shawn Wright's curator insight, August 11, 10:25 AM

For all who have uttered the thought that no Native American alive today was harmed by the actions of the government. If you will choose to you can open your eyes to truth. It continues today.

 

"Discovery of the BIA documents of government sterilizations on an estimated 70,000 Native American women throughout the 1970s. The procedures were performed by the Indian Health Service without the women’s consent, despite language barriers and under threats that they would lose their welfare benefits if they birthed another child. In some cases, teenage girls went in to have their tonsils removed and left without their ovaries."

Yes - always has been. LOL :( Sarcasm! Jesus was a Jew and probably very swarthy and definitely did not have blue eyes. And the blacks in this movie are either servants or bad guys. In this day and age!? WOW!

U.S. attorney warns N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo not to interfere with anti-corruption probes

U.S. attorney warns N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo not to interfere with anti-corruption probes | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it
T

The U.S. Attorney for Manhattan has threatened to investigate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration for possible obstruction of justice and witness tampering, after the governor canceled his own anti-corruption commission, The New York Times said.

The prosecutor, Preet Bharara, issued his warning in a “sharply worded letter,” the newspaper reported. His salvo arrived after several members of the “Moreland Commission” overtly defended the Democratic governor’s handling of the panel, which was supposed to clean up politics in Albany but was shut down in March.

“At least some of those statements were prompted by calls from the governor or his emissaries, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation who were unwilling to be named for fear of reprisal,” The Times said.

Mr. Cuomo is under a microscope after The Times reported the governor’s office shut down the panel’s work when it focused on groups with ties to the governor himself.

Exclusive: ‘Pro-Troop’ Charity Pays Off Tea Party Cronies Instead

Exclusive: ‘Pro-Troop’ Charity Pays Off Tea Party Cronies Instead | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"Move America Forward has collected millions to send care packages to U.S. troops. But its assets have benefited conservative political consulting firms close to its Tea Party founder..

 

.

"...an examination of its fundraising appeals, tax records and other documents shows that Move America Forward has repeatedly misled donors and inflated its charitable accomplishments, while funneling millions of dollars in revenue to the men behind the group and their political consulting firms. 

In several instances, the charity has taken images and stories from other groups and from veterans themselves without permission to use in fundraising appeals.

Last year, Move America Forward even solicited funds by claiming a partnership with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the largest hospital for wounded service members in the country. No such partnership existed, Defense Department officials say."
