Mohawk Nation News 'Is Onondaga a Banana Republic?'

IS ONONDAGA A BANANA REPUBLIC?

Please post & distribute.
MNN. DEC. 3, 2015. Is Onondaga a banana republic, where a corrupt violent strongman is put in by foreign corporate interests? The people live in poverty, rampant uninvestigated murders, while the dictator lives in splendor.
Stampee: "Mr. Erdogan, I can give you refuge at Onondaga for a little while!"
Lyons: “Mr. Erdogan, I can give you refuge at Onondaga for a little while!”
According to kaia’nereh:kowa women are supposed to be in charge in our communities. In Onondaga, a nation of the rotino’shonni/Iroquois Confederacy, the federally established ‘Consiglieri’, and his ‘Don’, Oren “Te-sna-tsa-hia-ton” Lyons  threaten, banish or attack their critics. By design most of the community is on welfare. The longhouse, turned “clubhouse”, only does ceremonies to distract the people. The original great law is not followed. The corporate coded version is practiced like a religion. Vital community interests are not protected. The favored few and family members get stipends, housing, economic benefits, health and protection. The rest get nothing. The protection racket and control is based on rumor, gossip, fear and threats of banishment.
Paris COP21: "It was our duty to disrupt this enslavement event".
Paris COP21: “It was our duty to disrupt this enslavement event”.
Presently Lyons is in Paris at the COP21 climate conference with all the other corporate fakes mapping out the global depopulation strategy.
The CROWN is systematically dividing true kanien’keh longhouses. Hired henchmen, like the Indian Law Resource Center ILRC, help the corporate chiefs create confusion and chaos. In “Agents of Repression”, American Indian Movement, Black Panthers, Puerto Ricans and other legitimate movements were discredited and violently crushed by such tactics. The corporate chiefs’ minds are infested with owistah, based on “me”, instead of “we”.
Lyons, a Seneca, appeared in Onondaga in the early 1970’s. Other trained agents were sent into other onkwe’hon:weh communities. They were told to “Pick a side. It doesn’t matter which. Just make sure the two sides never come together again”. In 1979, Lyons,  ILRC, the feds and NYS began a “message” campaign against the real onkwe’hon:weh calling them “enemies” of the corporations. thought-police
Lyons said, “Don’t let the rotiskenerakete get control”. He really meant, “Don’t let the men carry out their duties”.
Lyons helped set up the plan to destroy us from the inside. Some of our women were “smooched” to abandon their great law role and finger those to be attacked, removed and credibility smeared. True kaia’nere:kowa longhouses were turned into corporate religious institutions.
For years Lyons got millions and gifts on behalf of Onondaga, which were not disperse to them. He instigated banishment of his critics or deprived them of their rights and benefits. We were to be victims of trumped up and illegal tax evasion charges. Then IRS showed up and demanded unlawful taxes from the people. The Council had established a compact with NYS and the federal government to collect taxes from all the Iroquois everywhere.
The people demanded to “see the books” [the right ones]. One of the corrupt chiefs tore a small piece of paper, wrote a figure on it and threw it on the floor. “Here’s your accountability!” The businesses quit paying to the council and put the funds into escrow. Lyons and the chiefs decided those who don’t play by their rules were going to be shut down.
te-sna-tsa-hia-ton, we're waiting for you.
te-sna-tsa-hia-ton, we’re waiting for you.
In 1996 a meeting in the longhouse to discuss controlling these businesses. With their lawyer, Joe Heath, Federal Marshalls, Onondaga County Sheriff and New York State Police, the non-complying businesses and homes were burnt down, bulldozed and families banished. In 1997 the Council of Chiefs worked with the military “INDIAN Detail” to carry out a deadly attack us during the May 18th celebration of our NYS court victory against illegal taxation of our businesses. A trial is supposedly starting in January 2016 to try the New York State Police. Disclosures clearly show the chiefs’ complicity in the brutal attack. [Andrew Jones v. Superintendent NYS Police, Jan. 25, 2001, 98-CV-374].
Corporations establish and protect the federally recognized tribal councils. US and NYS want our land and resources, which we never ceded. They fear the Confederacy will assert our power. They are liable for everything they stole.proverb
