DDoS Attacks On The Eye & Corporate Polluters Attacks On Tribes

For the past 48 hours or so Oneida Eye has endured a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, so readers may have noticed slow uploading, no uploading or missing elements.

Apparently we’re providing information that some people don’t want the Oneida Tribe or the world to know, which we take as a good sign.

Oneida Eye will soon be undergoing changes to avoid such attacks and may go dark for a period of 8-24 hours. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

In the meantime here’s interesting news:

On Wednesday October 15, 2013 the WI Circuit Court of Appeals access website was updated regarding Appeals Case #2013AP591, Oneida Seven Generations Corporation & Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC v. City of Green Bay, and in the Case History area under ‘Activity’ it now says, “Awaiting Opinion/Decision,” which suggests the decision will be made before the December 15, 2013 General Tribal Council Meeting where Frank Cornelius will make a presentation for GTC to exercise self-defense and dissolve OSGC:

In related news, it seems that OSCG President/Board Chair & Oneida Gaming Commission Counsel Atty. William ‘Bill’ Cornelius may have recently begun working for Baker, Tilly, Virchow & Krause, LLP:

1:30pm – 3:00pm: Energy Forum – Roundtable Session Three

William Cornelius – Baker, Tilly, Virchow & Krause, LLP

Beyond working for the Oneida Casino and for OSGC & its affiliates, as well as providing defense attorney services for family members of the Oneida Business Committee and Casino Executives, how many jobs – and salaries – does Atty. William Cornelius have? Our guess is he’s none too worried about the Tribe’s Emergency Furlough Policy.

In any case, the fact that the Oneida Gaming Commission Counsel (who thereby works for the Oneida Tribe) now works for Baker Tilly (as it’s widely known) means that it would be a conflict of interest for Baker Tilly to do any work for the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin. Oh, well.

But guess who just happens to be on the NCAIED Board of Directors?

Track 2: ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT – Empowerment Zones, Tax-Exempt Bonds, and Other Economic Diversification Measures.

Ernie Stevens, Jr. – Chairman, National Indian Gaming Association and NCAIED Board Member

Among the NCAIED October conference sponsors are Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Edison International, and Salt River Project (SRP) of which the Indigenous Environmental Network has written:

The Zuni tribe of New Mexico are waging a battle with Salt River Project (SRP), an Arizona-based electric power company that wants to destroy the sacred Zuni Salt Lake, by mining over 80 million tons of coal from 18,000 acres of federal, state, and private lands. The lake is a sacred place, home to Zuni’s very important deity, the Salt Mother. SRP will pump 85 gallons per minute of groundwater from the same aquifer that feeds the lake. Since time immemorial, the Zuni, Acoma, Laguna, Hopi, Navajo, Apache and other Southwestern tribes have traveled to the lake over pilgrimage trails to collect salt for ceremonial and domestic purposes. SRP will also construct a 44-mile railroad from the mine in Fence Lake, New Mexico, to the Coronado Generating Station in St. John’s, Arizona. The railroad will destroy many sections of pilgrimage trails and prevent access over those trails. SRP wants to destroy all of this so that Arizona consumers can have cheap electricity from dirty coal. The costs to the environment and tribes are too high.

“The U.S. energy policy has been at the expense of our Indian people that has left whole communities devastated and living in terror. It is an oppressive colonial system that feeds off the blood of the earth and blood of our people. We need to stop this colonial mindset that clouds our tribal leadership to think we could become partners with the fossil fuel and nuclear energy industry and still maintain our cultural and spiritual integrity,” said [Tom] Goldtooth.

Something to contemplate at the next Longhouse or N.A.C. social event or religious ceremony.

Oneida Eye stands by its assessment:

Just like Chief Counsel Jo Anne House, Atty. Bill Cornelius needs to go.
