I think we’re all pretty much aware by now that for AIM, Graham, and the Peltierites nothing is about the truth, you could roll them in flour and fry them in a skillet with it and they would still deny it’s existence.
A bizarre phenomena at the least, and a cruel cultivated conspiracy at the most where facts are anathema having been replaced with ignorance and gullibility.
In the blog Crow Dog and the Grave Diggers Crow Dog’s own words as follows attest to the strategy and predictable ease to manipulate opinion and forgo any consideration of facts and the obvious.
LCD: So what’s gonna’ happen is this. Somebody has to talk to these people.
CW: Which people?
LCD: The black people and those…
CW: The ones who are looking?
LCD: Yeah. Talk to them and calm ‘em down. While we get somebody to find them
and blame the Feds.
There has always been “somebody” to fabricate the lies and dissemenate them, there has always been and always
will be an audience eager to accept them.
Crow Dog and AIM know this, it is their bread and butter, an understanding that in the nations having been victims for centuries others will romanticize that to the degree that victims are incapable of victimizing other victims.
Yet nothing could be further from the truth-and the sad reality of it is that there is historical proof of it.
Proofs that exist in the murder of Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse are two examples-proofs that exist in victims after having been rounded up and confined to the stockyards known as the rez donned the blue coats of their captors to assist in the tracking and capture of others, to assist in “guarding” them, and even to loading them on rail calls to ship off to other areas of confinement.
How is it in view of these things can any believe none have donned the blue coats of this modern age when culture and tradition have been weakened by assimilation?
How is that any would think the lure of celebrity, power, and wealth could not exist in this day and age?
Modern day oppressors victimizing and killing their own while posing as victims themselves, with a gullible audience aiding and abetting and blue coat websites promoting them.
For those so eager to free murderers on “technicalities” and lies they should be at least equally committed to the truth and the pursuit of justice for those who have been murdered like Annie, Ray, and those countless others who lay in unmarked graves or suffered rape and any abuse at the hands of AIM. Maybe they just don’t see that as a romantic pursuit though, or a justice long overdue.
It isn’t as though we haven’t endured enough, it isn’t as though we deserve something better, so I’d like to personally take this opportunity to thank those delusional romantics of all races for their “good work” and “support” to elevate us as a people to better things.
Your boot on our neck will surely facilitate that.
How To Speak The Truth
This was sent to me in a private message fresh from the pages of my mothers’ murderer. Normally I would not repeat the misinformation and fantasy that plagues that page but thought I would take the opportunity to use it to demonstrate how the truth gets twisted, manipulated, conveniently left out and forgotten in their attempts to victimize the guilty.
“ John was aquitted – found innocent – of murdering Anna Mae Aquash. The prosecution and accusers claimed he shot her in the head. Their theory was not proven in court because they had no evidence. Their entire case was the testimony of Arlo Looking Cloud (see in files info about Arlo and how he and the lead investigator’s wife framed John Graham) Their theory that AIM ordered her execution was not proven in court. Their theory of kidnapping was not proven in court. John is doing life without parole for a crime he did not commit. after the federal judge dismissed the charges they just handed him over to the state of south dakota who charged him with the murder of anna mae and they at the same time charged him with another murder count – kidnapping – and that charge would not be allowed today, if the murder happened today that charge would be deemed unconstitutional but because the murder happened in 75 it’s somehow not unconstitutional to charge him with that today. i believe the jury aquitted him because they heard no evidence against him and his lawyer brought out a lot during cross examination and then found him guilty at the same time because of the ‘why would he be here with law enforcement testifying against him if he did nothing wrong” in a nutshell he was charged with 2 counts and they aquitted on one -shooting her and convicted on the other – kidnapping that resulted in death. – all on the same evidence that showed neither happened.”
First of all Graham was NOT acquitted and found innocent of murdering Anna Mae Aquash. The FACTS…an acquittal is not a definition of innocence, it means the government did not prove their case to convict, it has no bearing on whether an individual is innocent or not. The TRUTH…. his federal case was dismissed TO BE TRIED at the federal court level because the prosecution had no jurisdiction to try his case in a federal court based on his native status. (We had not even gotten to the trial stage and no evidence was heard) His lawyer had found a loophole where a law written in the 1800s stated that only a native of 50% blood quantum could be tried by a federal court for murder. Since Canada uses a matrilineal lineage and location formula to determine native status the US federal government could not determine if Graham was native enough to stand trial in the federal court. He did however qualify to stand court at the State level. As non-Indians are tried at the State level, so he was tried as a non-Indian in State court. The only acquittal Graham received was that of a second charge of first degree murder or premeditated murder during his actual trial.
John Graham was NOT FRAMED. The Facts… it was the testimony of over 23 eye witnesses ( many of them AIM members) that described and confirmed each and every step of the kidnapping, interrogation, beating and execution that convicted Graham, NOT just the words of Arlo Looking Cloud and Kamook Nicoles ’ the lead investigators wife”. There was plenty of evidence , as a matter of fact enough to conduct 4 trials, resulting in two convictions, one guilty plea and one acquittal ( in the case of Richard Marshall) http://www.jfamr.net/doc/ The TRUTH …When the evidence was first heard and put on record Kamook was not married to the lead investigator Robert Eccoffey. They did not get married till after Arlos trial in 2004 . So again to say “the wife of the lead investigator” sounds so much more sinister than to say she busted this case wide open 10 years before we even got to trial by speaking her truth. Kamook and Robert Eccoffey have known each other since grade school well before Kamook even knew or met Dennis Banks, and the fact that they reunited and fell in love during a trial that dealt with an era they had both lived and suffered emotionally from has more to do with a lifetime of kinship and commonality during a very stressful time than a sinister plan to put some nobody like John Graham in prison.
The FACTS AIM as an organization was not formally charged in Grahams trial so to say that “the theory that they ordered her murder was not proven” is again a LIE. The TRUTH… IT was the sworn testimony of eye witnesses that confirmed AIM ordered her murder that Graham followed out. Unless Graham’s people are accusing the AIM leadership of being feds and infiltrators, then it would make sense to suggest the feds had a hand in her murder. The Author of the passage above also uses words like ”theory“ there was no “theory” of kidnapping. The TRUTH…Graham was charged with Kidnapping, and first degree murder. He was convicted of kidnapping felony murder and acquitted of the premeditated first degree murder charge because the jury could not determine WITH OUT A DOUBT that his intention from the beginning of the kidnapping was to shoot her. It does not mean he is innocent, it means the government could not prove their case in that charge. Kidnapping Felony murder means he kidnapped her and the events led to her death. In State court that has a mandatory life sentence without parole. Unfortunately Grahams Lawyer’s attempts to get his client off on a technicality in federal court led his client to more severe rulings in State court. In federal court he would have been eligible for parole in ten years.
Maybe Graham will consider speaking the truth now and tell us who in the Aim leadership ordered him to murder my mother and save himself ? I find it interesting that Graham’s lawyers and supporters argue the constitutionality of his ruling for kidnapping when they used a centuries old law to protect their client from entering a federal courtroom . What is unconstitutional is that my mother had to wait 25 years to have any shred of justice for the lies that we now know as a fact the AIM leadership and at least a dozen others kept secret for over 25 years. Had the statute of limitations for rape not expired after 25 years I am sure Graham would have also been charged with that, but luckily for him time ran out.
IF Graham is in any way innocent as his supporters want to fantasize and wish then surely he would have no problem sharing who was in that house in Rosebud where the orders were given to execute my mother. I am guessing that the AIM leadership and Peltiers public support of Graham is their calling card to CLAM UP or they will reveal his participation in acting on their orders in murdering my mother during their attempts to control the situation. Maybe Graham should confer with Leonard on how that deal has worked out for him? 35 years later…
In the Spirit of my mother,
