Navajo: EPA trying to swindle Indians in mine spill…

by Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times  |  published on August 13, 2015

The EPA is trying to cheat Navajo Indians by getting them to sign away their rights to future claims from the agency’s Gold King Mine disaster, tribal officials charged Wednesday, adding more to the administration’s public relations problems over the spill that threatens critical Southwest waterways.

EPA officials were going door-to-door asking Navajo, some of whom don’t speak English as their primary language, to sign a form that offers to pay damages incurred so far from the spill, but waiving the right to come back and ask for more if their costs escalate or if they discover bigger problems, Navajo President Russell Begaye told The Washington Times.

    More than ever, the Indians should not trust the EPA bearing false beads! Gina McCarthy needs to be fired and sent to prison, along with her boss, Hussein. We have the Enemy in Charge of the Government at the moment, with this current evil Kenyan Queen and his ilk! They need to be removed by any means available and people of Honor and Responsibility put in their place! Time for Payback!

    Screw the Navajo, and every other tribe, screw the whites, screw anyone and everyone except Black punks (decent Blacks get screwed too), illegals and Muslims. Yup, the only true statement that man uttered – to fundamentally change the US.

    Who will be held responsible for people, livestock ad land damage long term? The EPA has lost much of its credibility by their examples from the past.

    A July 30 letter to the editor of a local newspaper from a retired geologist appears to have predicted the Environmental Protection Agency’s disastrous chemical spill into a major Colorado River tributary that happened just days later.

    …days before the incident, retired geologist Dave Taylor wrote to the editors of the Silverton Standard & the Miner newspaper that he believed there would be an intentional breach with ulterior motives behind it.

    “Based on my 47 years of experience as a professional geologist,” Taylor wrote, “it appears to me that the EPA is setting your town and the area up for a possible Superfund blitzkrieg.

    I hope that everyone that can and is effected by this can sue the EPA for everything that they can get. They would not hesitate to do the same to a company or people of this nation.

    EPA officials should be ashamed of themselves; they caused the damage in the first place.
