Had an exchange with a sister this morning about the above notification Peltier HQ is sending to those on their list of supporters.
They characterized it as a covering of ground to separate the wheat from the chaff – sort of a new declaration of loyalty, possibly an effort to rid themselves of “snitches”, “provocateurs” , and independent thinkers who may have infiltrated the hive.
Something to speculate about in light of the recent polgroms that included the departure of Michael Kuzma, the previous attorney of record. The man once touted as a genuine Buffalo Bravado Boy who surely held the keys to Peltier’s cell until he had the integrity to publicly admit what Peltier and LPDOC never did…that the Mr.X mystery shooter and stand up guy was as bogus as government pledges of transparency…sort of a no good deed goes unpunished approach evidenced by the Central Committee
I don’t know if anyone else has said so but despite the opposing sides Kuzma and I stand on I appreciate the fact he was willing to make such a statement whether others saw it as anathema to the theme.
Departures and house cleaning at LPDOC seems to be a fairly routine occurrence, the revolving door of change showing wear and beginning to wobble on it’s axis.
But always of necessity portrayed as a good thing, an act of revitalization trimming excess fat that will culminate in a lean mean fighting machine.
Maybe such efforts will, though there isn’t much historical data to indicate this will be the case.
Which would lead one to speculate there aren’t enough exercise machines to accomplish the goal. That in fact on an organizational level a discernible bloat is noticeable from entity to poster boy, and dredging the AIM pond for new associates and departmental heads can’t really be seen as a stroke of genius.
These “notifications” have a role though – usually amusing to mull over with a cup of coffee, kind of like the Sunday “funnies” to be found in the cartoon section of the local newspaper. But also I think as a window into what may well be a ongoing air of internal turmoil and confusion generated by discovering the other side of the story, the creative manner in which the “truth” is presented.

I don’t know about anyone else but the mere thought of missing so much as a single word of Peltier’s is too unsettling, unbearable actually, so pardon me while I drop everything and rush to sign up before this sale ends.
