Will Senator Raud Paul close Haskell Indian Nations University and Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute?

Advertisement

From Senator Raud Paul’s website: “For far too long, the Bureau of Indian Affairs has swindled and mismanaged billions of dollars in Indian trust funds. Former Special Trustee Thomas Slonaker in 2004 testified that the Department of the Interior and the BIA were incapable of reform and were unwilling to hold people accountable for their actions…. Instead of wasting taxpayer funds [by] throwing money into a bureau of corruption and incompetency, eliminate them and allow the tribes to manage their own trust funds independently without government intervention.”

Recently under the watchful eye of the Bureau of Indian Affairs/Education, three new employees were hired at Haskell Indian Nations University. With its current graduate rate (somewhere between one and nine percent) we have to ask is it a school or is it an employment agency?

Here’s great thinking for you. Someone in the Bureau of Indian Education put Venida Chenault in charge (we would laugh if it wasn’t so sad) of Haskell. We were hoping that maybe, just maybe, she would be beamed up onto the U.F.O. with her sister, so far not even the aliens are takers…….

Is Senator Raud Paul right? He certainly could not be proven wrong by the way The Bureau of Indian Affairs/Education is currently running Haskell and Sipi (Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute)( Haskell can’t graduate students, and Sipi isn’t accredited) .

Will Senator Raud Paul close Haskell Indian Nations University and Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute? If he succeeds in closing the Bureau of Indian Affairs he will.

Where did you get the following quote from on his website exactly? ~~From Senator Raud Paul’s website: “For far too long, the Bureau of Indian Affairs has swindled and mismanaged billions of dollars in Indian trust funds. Former Special Trustee Thomas Slonaker in 2004 testified that the Department of the Interior and the BIA were incapable of reform and were unwilling to hold people accountable for their actions…. Instead of wasting taxpayer funds [by] throwing money into a bureau of corruption and incompetency, eliminate them and allow the tribes to manage their own trust funds independently without government intervention.”~~ I want to read the whole thing in full context or if you got it from video listen to the whole video. I went to his website and read some press releases and listened to a few of the recent videos, but there are several. What is the website I may have looked at the wrong one? And why do you keep referring to him as Raud Paul and not Senator Rand Paul? Just getting clarification is all thanks.

The last I knew his name was "Rand Paul."

Never mind "Haskellnews" I went back to your last Rand Paul post from a week ago and got the link from Roh's comment: Taken from "http://www.mtwytlc.org/component/content/article/99-news/1010-sen-rand-paul-set-to-ignore-treaty-obligations-to-indians.html" This is obviously where you took it from also even though you failed to note it. The whole article is a good read.

They were the first ones here. Where do you propose to send them back too?
