This is a comment SNAPPLE just left on my blog for those of you who would like to hear from an FBI supporter’s take on the whole Anna Mae Aquash story. My response is below his.
On August 12, 2009 at 5:24 am Snapple Said:
Richard Two Elk has made a video that describes some things that happened when the AIM attacked the people at Wounded Knee.
I think you should hear his side instead of just listening to a woman who may be closely associated with the people who conspired in some crimes.
I have a number of posts about Two Elk, but you might want to see his new video.
The introduction of the Trimbach’s book is written by Mr. Two Elk. He writes about child abuse and alcoholism in the introduction. This book is based on Indian sources because it is Indians who witnessed the crimes or who were the victims.
I linked it on this post.
I think you are believing the lies that the criminals who killed Indians, FBI agents, and some young women and men at Wounded Knee told.
You write about abuse of women and children, but young women and girls were sexually assaulted and murdered during the take-over.
The lawyer for the AIM, Mark Lane, got money from the KGB. He was also the lawyer for the 900 people at Jonestown who were murdered. Mark Lane says he managed to escape that day. Only a few people weren’t poisoned or shot. Then Mark Lane–the AIMster lawyer who got money from the KGB–wrote a book that claimed the CIA killed those people.
Mark Lane got money from the Soviet KGB to make trouble and to discredit American security agencies like the FBI and CIA. We know this because a KGB archivist defected to the British with many years of notes he took on the documents in the KGB foreign intelligence archives.
You must not have read my posts or comments to James Simon very well. I do not just listen to Monica Charles…she merely suggested a book to read….I have been reading THE UNQUIET GRAVE by Steve Hendricks. I got hung up on the Jancita Eagle Deer story and wrote several posts about her. What do you think about Jancita Eagle Deer? Do you see her as just another lying drunk Indian woman who “got” what she asked for?
I in no way, shape or form support ANYONE who has raped or abused women or children…David Seals has spoken out against AIM leaders who treated women poorly…as has Monica Charles. (look up my posts on Bernard Red Cherries. I have a victims statement from his step daughter on my blog. A fellow blogger was threatened by Autonomous AIM Where is the FBI??) The point is Snapple, you and James Simon unconditionaly support those who who have either ignored or partaken in the abuse of women. As Monica Charles once wrote I see the law enforcement as public servants sworn to uphold the laws of the United States(she just plain mistrusts them). The FBI should have been protecting the rights of Native Americans and not just those of the colonizers.
I am not mired in opinion of one side over the other. I do not blindly support the AIM or the FBI. The only people I blindly support are the victims…and not the ones crying over the loss of their material possesions at Wounded KneeII
My sympathies and prayers go to the children like MaryAnn Little Bear and Jancita Eagle Deer…and the countless others who did not seem to warrant the FBI’s attention in the terms of a thorough investigation. That bothers me more than the Anna Mae Aquash murder…Anna Mae Aquash was a woman who made it to adulthood and made her decision to be involved in activities that may or may not get her killed…she felt that what she was doing was right and good. I do not agree with nor do I condemn her actions…She was caught up in something that became beyond her control. However I do not hold AIM to higher standards than I hold the FBI.The only law enforcement agent that looks to be a hero in all of this is U.S.Marshal Colburn…he’s good looking too!
My concept of my history has been pulled out from under me with this Indian stuff…totally blows me away at 43? My attitudes toward law enforcement and the government has changed considerably not because they made mistakes or did stupid things or even because they plotted to exterminate Indians but because they continue to support the wrong minded thinking in 2009. 2009 ! ! ! (kind of like the racism we are seeing with the election of Obama) They refuse to recognize, take responsibility and hold accountable those who did not enforce the laws that they were sworn to uphold. AIM was a group of protestors that got out of hand…the FBI is a government agency who only investigated crimes on Pine Ridge and other reservations when it suited their racist, paranoid beliefs.
As for Richard ‘Two Elks….have you ever read alt.native??? This is what the FBI supports??? Seriously???? All any jury would have to read is a copy of him making fun of a woman who was sexually abused by her father that pretty much negates what he claims to be consern and support for Native women. I own a copy of AMERICAN INDIAN MAFIA and I will get around to reading it. But being endorsed by Richard Two Elks and Bill Janklow….you guys are starting off on the wrong foot with me.
I am trying to finish THE UNQUIET GRAVE and it is difficult…they are in Oregon traveling with dynamite….It’s hard to read but this is not something that I can even discuss with you because you are 100 percent in support of genocide. I can’t even get James Simon to acknowledge that the government was stearilizing Indian women in the sixties. His avoidance of the topic makes me believe that he thinks that these were the right actions…that Indian women are less than human. What about you SNAPPLE….do you unconditionally support all actions by the United States???
A few more things why do you hide behind the name SNAPPLE?
Why are the FBI supporters so concerned about Monica Charles sex life? That really bothers me..why is that thrown around? Do you hold women to differnet standards? Is there any proof of her having sex with Dennis Banks? She says she didn’t….and if she did why bring it up like she is a whore? How many women or men have you been with??? Why aren’t the sex lives of the FBI agents under attack or investigated or commented about?
Get that video of Richard Two Elks on youtube and I will put it on my blog and make it a whole post!
Oh and I haven’t heard of any young women being murdered at Wounded Knee….but with all I have been stuffing in my head…did I gloss over it?
I look forward to hearing your response.
The Exxon Valdez keeps popping up in my life some 20 years after the incident (DID I JUST SAY 20 YEARS??? FEELS LIKE FIVE!)
This book was written by a local Southern Oregonian. It isn’t a very long book and much of it is dedicated to various rants more appropriate to a blog. FOR FREE!
Having said that David Spruill was actually one of the fishermen in Alaska who helped with the cleanup. Unfortunately he does not elaborate enough on that and assumes us nonfisherpersons know what he is talking about.He needed to spell it out for us and explain more about fishing and the cleanup techniques. …He needed an editor to give him direction. He does give us enough information so that we will want to read more about it from another source.
Here is an example of what he writes that would make you want to learn more about what really happened.
Why would you steer outside of an intersection to miss a dog in the intersection and chance piling it up into a building when all you have to do is slow down? My point being the EXXON Valdez could have meandered through the ice ahead slowly, in and out of gear, rather than to choose to veer outside of the shipping lane and imminently pile her up on Blight Reef which is clearly marked on their GPS Plotter, there is also a lighted navigational marker to warn you of the reef’s presence.
Did you know that upon grounding, eight of the eleven storage tanks were ripped open? Did you know that the number of the gallons spilled was determined and reported to the Coast Guard by EXXON? The EXXON Valdez holds 53 million gallons, but their figure came out to be about 20% of that, or 10.7 million gallons. Volumetrically, if those eleven storage compartments were the same size, then rupturing eight of the eleven storage compartments would yield about two-thirds of the cargo loss in question or more like 38.5 million gallons.
Expedient deployment with oil spill response equipment that they were required to have was the only edge to be had, but at beginning of the year they had cut their required amount of response equipment in half to save money, which left them incapable to respond to a spill of this magnitude….
…it is written that any ship spilling more than one million gallons will be banned from the waters of Prince William Sound. since the spill, the Hell Ship EXXON Valdez was repaired and renamed the SEA RIVER MEDITERRANEAN.
Spruill goes on to tell about the clean up (mind you this is all by page 10! like I said it is more like a blog post and not a book he relates how a fisherman named Kelly found a way to fill his boat with 7,500 gallons of oil and that EXXON became upset because they had already told the press that they had cleaned up most of the oil.
The fishermen were halted from the cleanup and…
sorties flown by a C-130…..(once again he only spends one paragraph explaining this in an erratic fashion that doesn’t make a lot of sense)…we found a rip which consisted of what seemed to be an emulsion of oil, water and foam with little white granules, w(h)ere did all of the oil go? It was at that moment we were sure that they had been using that c-130 to sink as much of the spilled oil to the bottom without any spectators, out of sight and out of mind? Damn you EXXON! You wiped out our beautiful spotted prawns and our crab too.
What is a rip? What was the white granules did anyone take a sample? Apparently the white granules caused chemical burns on the people trying to do clean up..but once again no elaboration and all of this information is contained in 14 pages…that should be the length of a forward to a book!
The book includes pictures of the clean up effort by the fishermen and they are to be commended. The rest of the book is about how EXXON got out of paying for the damage to the environment or to the fishermen for their loss of work. The subject is outrageous and people should be boycotting EXXON and the politicians who support them or who are supported by them. The book includes many letters and rants
Sounds like racketeering to me, but what do I know? I’m just a “Red White and Blue” “Tried and True” “Human Being”. What is your faction? The PLO? “Political Lies and Oil?” Did you know that “tic” is the middle word in politician? You blood suckers!
Now, where I come from, if you continue to do your job incorrectly, you are terminated, fired! Now call me crazy if you want to but I think that I’m not the only person who feels this way. Every single person that I know or talk to seems to feel the exactly the same way. I think they call that unanimous, but I don’t expect you to understand that because of your denial of the facts and the fact that this is really going to affect where you sleep at night. It won’t be the country club or Camp Snoopy! Do You Get My Point?
It goes on and on and and on…He does have two plans one is for everyone to bring their pennies to the VFW so they can break the Guiness Book of World Records, and to show our undying gratitude, to request the government to discontinue use of the penny and to melt them all down for money? I’m not sure what that has to do with the EXXON spill. He also has a second project HANDS ACROSS AMERICA from the East Coast to the West Coast.
David Spruill is certainly passionate about his causes and I wish him all of the success with them. He is more than welcome to my penny jar! He says he has a website under construction but I couldn’t find it. He can get a free blog up on WordPress.com and this book has a Copyright of 7/23/08 today is 6/5/09 more than enough time to get a website up. He should have not announced it in a book until it was up. Why should people have to keep looking for his website? He wants people to send money for his Hands Across America project….he can’t even get a site up!!!
RAGE TENDS TO DISORIENT ONES THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS. I’m not giving up on David Spruill yet I think he has something going.
My sane Uncle Vic was one of the GAO investigators concerning the EXXON Valdez spill. Here is VICTOR REZENDES GAO TESTIMONY. I was hoping to find him on Youtube I think he was on 60 MINUTES too. People need to get with the program Youtube is one of the greatest things invented for us bloggers!!!
I would love to read a book that was a cross between David Spruill and a GAO document filled with emotion and lots of information that I can follow and pictures. I wish the government would dumb things down a little for me!!!
Here are some videos I found on the EXXON VALDEZ
Here is Governor Palin’s response to the Supreme Court letting Exxon off the hook for most of the punitive damages
Here is a very good piece by Journeyman Pictures
Americans need to start reading our History. Native Americans could have told you about our corrupt government 200 years ago… there is no difference between the theft of the lands we promised to Native American. Yellow gold, black gold its all the same when it comes to greed and American policy….now that it is affecting white people they are waking up and saying this is not fair! It’s funny in an awful, horrible sort of way but the white people affected by the Valdez still get off a lot better than the Indians did.
All excerpts are in italics and are from THE UNQUIET GRAVE by Steve Hendricks.
Wow…I’m on page 35!!!
Then we took 525 square miles of land from Pine Ridge and gave it to the Department of war for a bombing range.
The inhabitants of the range were given ten days’ notice to gather what they could and get off. For their land and improvements-fences, barns, houses, and so on- they were paid dimes on the dollar (white appraisers took a dim view of Indian property) and for their moving costs they were paid even less.
Of course whites didn’t do this because they are racist.
What land the government did not buy outright at these prices it leased at three (Yes 3) pennies an acre. The residents were told they could return after the war, but the air force kept thte land until 1986, at which time Congress gave it not to the Oglalas but to the National Park Service for the inclusion in Badlands National Monument, under whose stewardship the tract’s rich uranium deposits were not protected from mining.
But as I said this was not done because whites are racist it was because…
Indians, even in the 1970’s, were children- legally wards of the state, This condition, which continues today, was a holdover from the nineteenth century, when most Indians were unschooled in the language, commerce, and laws of America and the government sought both to protect Indians from rapacious whites and to keep Indians in submission.
See??? I knew there was a good reason!!!
...Indians could own land on reservations after a fashion, but they were never permitted to own it out right. Instead, their lands were held in trust by the Department of the Interior, parent of the BIA, which was supposed to manage the property for Indians’ benefit.
Lacking clear title, Indians could not use their land as collateral for loans.
Lacking loans (and jobs), Indians had no capital to buy the tools, supplies, and animals to work their land for profit.
Their only recourse was to lease the land, sell it to non-Indians, or leave it be.
Land hungry whites-farmers, ranchers, timber harvesters, miners-were only too happy to rent or buy, and the BIA was only too happy to broker the deals, sweetening them with below-market appraisals.
On Pine ridge in the early 1970’s, the BIA leased land for an average of $1 an acre per year and sold it for an average of $40 an acre.
Millions of acres slipped through Indian hands in this way.
Indians who held on to their land tended to be mixed-bloods, descendants of Indians who had married whites and so had better access to capital. For the most part, mixed-bloods also held the few jobs on the reservations, ran the tribal governments, and retained little of their language, religion, and culture.
A search of the old bombing range brought this interesting bit of information, In 1980 a study was done and the land was still not fit for humans to live on or grow food. And apparently there are still unexploded ammunition lying about. Read more about it here.
Here’s another good link on the clean-up of the bombing range it covers 342,000 acres and the government is going to clean up 2,486 acres of it…..click here
But now I have found this gem from a site called Native Unity they tell an even better story. Wow that is serious shit!!! A must read if you are not afraid to pull your head out of the sand…
I just read this on the same site: KOYAANISQATSI
ko.yaa.nis.qatsi (from the Hopi Language) n. 1. crazy life. 2. life in turmoil. 3. life out of balance. 4. life disintegrating. 5. a state of life that calls for another way of living.
I’ve never met a Hopi…..how did they hear about me!!!!
All excerpts are in italics and from THE UNQUIET GRAVE by Steve Hendricks.
Custer’s unprovoked and suicidal attack on the Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho nations at the Greasy Grass (Little Bighorn to the white man) was the climax of the campaign. The anticlimax was America’s revenge. So ruthless was the reprisal that the Indian holdouts withered in months.
Even after the government withheld food and threatened to take all of the land nine out of ten men refused to sign the Black Hills over. Not to worry Congress said one in ten was enough…
and voted theft into law in 1877.
The Lakotas were not long in suing for their land…..Finally in 1975, a federal appeals court proclaimed the obvious:” a more ripe and rank case of dishonorable dealing will never, in all probability, be found in our history.” But although the Supreme Court did not disagree, neither did it return an acre. In 1980, the high court ordered the Lakotas to settle all their land claims, for the Black Hills and elsewhere, for $106 million. the hills alone had yielded $4 billion in minerals and timber and billions untold in tourism and real estate. The Indians refused to receive the settlement. Today the money sits in escrow, steadily approaching $1 billion, but the poorest of America’s poor want nothing of it.
Wow and to think there are people who believe that whites as a whole aren’t racist…here’s the break down of Tarp money.

Of course those same people would deny that there is anything called global racism (courtesy of Mark Thompson on Sirius Left)….for instance Great Britain which is a small bit of Europe controlled the world for quite some time (Some think they still do)….The sun never sets on the British Empire. Maybe if people can consider the abuses of another country they will begin to see their own country’s abuses in the same light. There is no denying that the luxuries we enjoy to day are from the abuses of minorities. Oh but I’m sure those whites who run wall street and those companies would never ever stereotype an Indian.
And just one more thing why do Indians discriminate against Donald Trump?
Not another night without sleep!!!
This is what is wrong with America….here is Mr. Simon’s comment on my AMERICAN INDIAN MAFIA post.
Janklow went to jail for his crimes. The AIM leaders, however, have evaded justice in the premeditated murder of Anna Mae Aquash, and possibly several others. Thank you for proving our point that ignorance abounds when discussing the AIM legacy.
Are you freaking out of your mind??? He served a mere 100 days in a county facility! Premeditated murder? The trial has not even started yet…and from what I understand it was little more than a kangaroo court. Why has it taken 30 years? Once again why do you already pronounce John Graham and Richard Marshall guilty?
There’s a kid in a YCF that is serving five years and has to be moved to OSP for a few of those years when he turns 18 ….not to mention the restitution he has to work and pay off when he gets out. He doesn’t get to go out and perform “community service” or what ever nonsense Bill Jankow was allowed to do.
You sent me a link about the “real” victims of Wounded Knee….yeah I’m sure it is bad….what have YOU and the FBI agents that were there done for those families….60 families over 30 something years…they should all be taken care of by now. Seriously tell me all about how you have helped them…You would be in held in much greater esteem. What did Bill Jankow do for those families when he was governor? Are the proceeds of AMERICAN INDIAN MAFIA going to help those families? Did the Governor at the time declare Wounded Knee a disaster and plea for Federal dollars to help the families rebuild.
What about those rape charges you seem to have no problem proclaiming John Graham guilty before trial….more double standards??? Is it o.k. in your mind that the son of a bitch never went to trial. Does it not make you sick to your stomach at the thought of that happening to one of your young female relatives?
The people you admire astound me… Bill Janklow is no G.Gordon Liddy. Liddy had to serve about 4 years for for burglary and wiretapping but he served 4 years and has no regrets he admits everything he did..believes in everything he did. I don’t have to agree with him but you gotta have respect for a guy who doesn’t whine and takes responsibility for his actions.
You and people of your ilk are what make this country less than honorable…One can be proud of their country and ashamed of their government.
The difference between you and I is that I see AIM for what it is the good the bad and the ugly. I do not admire the men in AIM who committed crimes against women, violence against other humans…. I do admire the intention before it went awry.
I also see the FBI for what it is the good the bad the ugly the oppressor. I do not admire as you do corrupt law enforcement. I despise them a thousand times more than the worst of AIM. What you purport is that the FBI is above the law- you are wrong. They should be held to the highest of standards as should our politicians, and military.
I cannot spend anymore time on you…. it is like having a conversation with one of those dolls that repeats prerecorded sayings when you pull on its string..not an original thought between the ears.
(Try watching some of those COINTELPRO videos I have on the side you just might learn something)
