With the support of Sen. Chris Dodd, D.-Conn., the federal government has awarded $54 million to Connecticut’s politically well-connected Mohegan Indian tribe, which operates one of the highest grossing casinos in the U.S. Mohegan Sun Receives Stimulus Package The Mohegan tribe, which owns the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Conn., has been awarded a $54 million loan from federal stimulus funds.

The tribe runs the sprawling Mohegan Sun casino, halfway between New York City and Boston, which earned more than $1.3 billion in gross revenues in 2009. Each tribe member receives a cut of the profits, a number a tribal official said was “less than $30,000” per capita per year. The stimulus money is a loan from a U.S. Department of Agriculture rural development program that is meant to help communities of less than 20,000 people that have been “unable to obtain other credit at reasonable rates and terms and are unable to finance the proposed project from their own resources.”

Lynn Malerba, chairwoman of the Mohegan Tribal Council, defended the award of the stimulus loan to the tribe, and said that every member of Connecticut’s seven-member Congressional delegation except one had provided assistance in securing the funds. “The whole Connecticut delegation, I think aside from [Rep.] Jim Himes, who was traveling, sent a letter in support.”

Bryan DeAngelis, communications director for Sen. Dodd, confirmed Dodd’s support for the loan. “Senator Dodd supported this project in the same manner and for the same reasons he supports federal assistance for other Connecticut projects – creating and preserving local jobs,” said DeAngelis. “The only factor that mattered in Dodd’s support of these loans was job creation and economic recovery in Connecticut.” A former aide to Dodd, Charles Bunnell, is Chief of Staff for External and Governmental Affairs for the tribe.

An aide to Sen. Joseph Lieberman said the senator “is supportive of any constituent that applies for federal funding that will create jobs.”

Obama Disrespects the Old Glory Again

This guy really needs to be stopped, if his bad mouthing apology tour wasn’t vile enough now he is at it again.

From Newsoftheforce.com

By Warner Todd Huston, Canada Free Press
It’s bad enough that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is giving short shrift to American manufacturers and our economy by ordering extravagant new crystal stemware from Sweden to make the crystal cabinets in America’s embassies sparkle impressively, but now we learn that Barack Obama has told the U.S. relief forces in Haiti not to fly the U.S. flag over its own military compounds. He says that it will “send the wrong message.”
Never mind that all the other nations have their flags proudly flying above their military relief installations in Haiti. Even Croatia has its coat of arms flying outside its base. Yet not the U.S. Army. No U.S. flag flies anywhere despite that we are far and away the largest force and have supplied the most relief supplies and money to the earthquake recovery effort.
According to USAID, as of Jan. 19 the U.S. had spent $130,864,571 on aid to the Haitian people to help them recover from the devastating earthquake. By Jan. 25, that number had already increased to $179,883,065. It is only going up from there.
So why did the Obama administration forbid flying our own flag in Haiti? “We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery,” the U.S. government’s Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.
If it is so important to be seen as just another member of that international force, then why are all the other nations still flying their flags? Oh, I remember now – unlike the U.S., they don’t have a president that is more comfortable apologizing for his country than being proud of it, even when it is engaged in saving lives through relief work.
As far as Obama is concerned, we should be ashamed of our nation even when we are digging children and the aged out of mounds of crumbled ruins, even when we are feeding the hungry, and administering life saving medicines – all for free, mind you. Even those efforts aren’t good enough for us to be proud to fly our flag above them, apparently.
The NavyTimes.com report reveals a craven attempt by the Obama administration to pin this no-flag decision on our troops, too. Obama’s Army flak, Col. Billy Buckner, the spokesman for Joint Task Force-Haiti – “a group representing various Obama administration agency heads” the NavyTimes.com report tells us – says that our commanders are “smart” not to fly the flag. “Our commanders are smart and intuitively understand their mission here in Haiti, and clearly the sensitivities that come with supporting the mission,” Buckner said.
A U.S. flag went up at a temporary consular station set up in the first few days on the airport tarmac, according to Charles Luoma-Overstreet, a State Department spokesman in Haiti. “Apparently, the prime minister (Jean-Max Bellerive) saw this” and thought it appeared as if the United States were taking over the airport, Luoma-Overstreet said. He said Bellerive said something to U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Merten, who agreed that flying the flag wasn’t a good idea and told the consular officials to take it down.
Notice how it went from “the commanders” being “smart” enough to understand the situation to Obama’s ambassador to Haiti ordering the flag be removed? In other words, despite the colonel trying to make it seem as if the commanders on the ground are all for this dearth of Old Glory, it really ends up being a political decision by Obama and his cohorts who are ashamed of America and willing to let anyone denigrate her.
Does anyone really think that PM Bellerive would have persisted in his loose observation that the U.S. was an “occupying force” amidst all the aid flowing into his country? And even if he did, so what? The aid we were supplying is obviously far more important than a cheap political maneuver by Bellerive.
Still, this shows the lack of spine Obama has when standing up to foreign criticism. Even this offhanded comment from Bellerive was enough for Obama to slight his own army and his own countrymen by removing Old Glory from sight in Haiti.
If Obama is this much of a linguini-spined sort of a leader, what will happen to us if he faces a real foreign crisis?
