CNMI Madness Continues

August 3, 2010

Covenant congressional candidate Joseph Camacho thinks that the CNMI Delegate should "oppose" the DOI Report in the name of the CNMI people. I guess by CNMI "people" he means the outspoken, xenophobic leaders and 1% of the CNMI people who have shown up at the hearings!?

The DOI Report is the Obama Administration's recommendation to Congress.

He also claimed that the delegate should do something about the economy of the islands:
Another issue that the delegate has to tackle is the current economic condition of the islands, Camacho said.

The U.S., he said, promised economic prosperity for the CNMI, and, if elected, “I should hold them to that promise.”
Hmmm. I thought the delegate was an elected official, not a magician.  If Congressman Sablan has the power to fix the island economy I hope that he will share this amazing secret with the other members of the U.S. Congress, because the entire nation is waiting for economic prosperity to be restored across the nation.  Who knew the CNMI delegate held the solutions to a world-wide economic downturn that is the worst since the great depression! Didn't Covenant Party Governor Fitial promise economic prosperity?  Is this Covenant Party candidate going to comment on what happened there?  Maybe he could comment on what happened to the State of the CNMI address that the governor never delivered?

More profound statements from the Covenant Party
Governor Fitial "does not think the U.S. Congress is gullible to act on the Department of Interior's recommendation to grant improved immigration status to guest workers." Does this governor seriously think that members of the U.S. Congress, especially those familiar with the history of the CNMI including Abramoff scandal and Fitial's questionable acts over the years (think buying the speakership and massage gate to name a couple), will listen to this governor rather than to respected members of the Obama Administration? Really?

I am sure the recent racist hate-fests sponsored by the Fitial Administration, xenophobic remarks made by elected leaders and officials, misstatements, untruths, twisted facts, propaganda, withheld data and statistics, and political games have contributed to the deteriorating credibility of the CNMI  leadership in Washington, DC. I look forward to hearings on this issue.

In May 2010, Fitial wrote a 7-page letter with two appendices to DOI Secretary Ken Salazar asking for the DOI Report on the status of foreign workers to be withdrawn.  Today's Marianas Variety reported:
In an interview, Fitial said he had not seen the letter from Interior Secretary Ken Salazar defending the department’s recommendation.
He may want to read that letter.

Covenant won't win this time! Biba Kilili!

What has Kilili done that warrants reelection?

There are two experienced, honest, highly-qualified candidates: Kilili and Borja.

Babauta talks a good game, but was corrupt as a governor and a worse womanizer than Clinton -- as Washington Rep he got a staffer pregnant (who was later appointed a CNMI judge). Camacho is an expedient flip-flopper and just too close to Fitial.

Why does this guy not like Kilili or thinks he is better than Kilili now? That was his rooster. Now he's fighting his own rooster?

Kilili is thrifty with federal money. That's the truth. He did spend the most for food. That's the truth. He hasn't been perfect and we all may disagree with some of his positions. In fact, he may not be the smartest candidate in this field, nor may he have the better character. But Kilili has been working hard for those he represents and not himself. He has a big ego but we keep him in his place because he is afraid of angering his voters. That's the reason why we Keep Si Kilili and Cancel Si Camacho!

Camacho got a support of a telephone company, thanks to ARRA!

Ambrose Bennet supports Babauta.
Angelo Villagomez supports Borja.
Benigno Fitial supports Camacho.

That says it all.

Noni 3:34, You said it true, lets see how this goes and hope for the best. I have my doubts though. Like ever election, all talk and no action.

Yes. As a Democrat, I regretted my vote for Froilan. Then I voted for Babauta and regretted that. I didn't vote for Fitial I and I only regret that Heinz didn't win. But I'm not sure that would have been better. I regretted Juan Pan losing, but not so much because look at Joe Camacho! But Fitial paid for the Republican votes and so I'm back to being a regretful Democrat on Saipan! Sort of like Ron Paul's party or Ralph Nader! Darn it!
