Challenge to MN Governor, Legislature

Dear Friends,

The Resource Sentinel has delivered letters to Minnesota’s Governor and Legislature.

We asked the Governor, as is his duty, to investigate how Minnesota citizens, both tribal and non-tribal, are being deprived of their rights by Tribal Governments exercising power and authority unconstitutionally-delegated by rouge federal and state agencies. We also discussed over $20 billion dollars of budget deficits that never get debated in the media or by the major parties.

We asked legislators to help Governor Dayton clean up the budget deficit mess by taxing those people that he names as being responsible. We also suggested taxing gambling to save the Vikings and fund other programs that for those in need.

We hope you agree with our requests and will send the letters (or links) to all your friends. 

We are now taking off for three weeks to prepare for the CERA conference in Washington D.C. (and taking our fishing poles too.)

The conference runs from February 27 to March 3rd. If you have never been to a CERA conference, you should plan to attend! This would be a great year to do so.

We will again feature a panel of our Indian friends who will educate us more about the failures of Federal Indian Policy.

Keep the faith and stay the coarse. Hope you like the letters.

Letter to Minnesota Legislature


AG candidate waiting for AG office response

Candidate Hoch still waiting for gaming compact documents requested from Attorney General Lori Swanson

Hopkins Minnesota - The Resource Party’s Attorney General candidate David Hoch claims the State of Minnesota broke the law when it OK’d tribal gaming casinos—which has helped create billions of dollars of budget deficits for the people of Minnesota

On August 17, 2010, David J. Hoch served upon current MN Attorney General Lori Swanson’s office a Minnesota Data Practices Act request for all documents involving the MN Attorney General’s Office and relating to MN Statute 3.9221.

Candidate Hoch claims the state of Minnesota violated MN Statute 3.9221 when it negotiated the existing tribal-state compacts for the regulation of Class III gaming in Minnesota.


Attorney General Candidate claims State broke law allowing Indian Gaming compacts

David J. Hoch, Resource Party Candidate for MN Attorney General, today made a Minnesota Data Practices Act request of current Attorney General Lori Swanson. He is asking for all documents involving her office and  MN Statute 3.9221. This statute authorized the state to enter into negotiations for a compact with Minnesota tribes for casinos.

Hoch points out that negotiations did not involved authorized representatives of the state. Compacts were then drawn up and given force of law without any Legislative Authority to do so.


Letter to President Obama

March 1, 2010

President Barack Obama
The White House

Dear Mr. President,

I have done public service work for 30 years, working with citizen groups in an effort to protect the interests of private landowners, businesses, and others against powerful corporate interests that use our American Indian people to commercially harvest our nation’s fisheries resources. We have great concerns that local economies and the “quality of life” for many citizens are being negatively impacted by federal Indian policy, and by the workings of modern tribal sovereignty and its support network. When I say “citizens,” I include our Indian friends who question this dysfunctional and abuse-ridden system.

Fact Sheet: Loss of values in political parties, media, and the money markets

Urgent work needed to change a corrupted system and to restore the American Dream—for American Indians and non-Indians

The Conflict

Mr. President, we support your State of the Union comments about the declining values in our political parties and media. We also share your frustration in attempting to put common sense to work in dealing with our nation’s wealthiest, greediest, and most lawless citizens. They have corrupted our traditional rules of law, Congress, federal agencies, Wall Street, and too-big-to-fail banks, media, and our broader politics.
