Eddie Peltier, Richard LaFuenteI do my best to deliver factual information. The "Documents" pages are there for you to look and see for yourself. An innocent man is in prison for crimes committed by the corrupt, who run the reservation the way a criminal organization would run a city if they had all levels of government supporting and protecting them.

There are many more Good People in Spirit Lake than there are corrupt, evil people there. It is the system that is corrupt, evil and I expose here all that I can.

I can be reached at this email:  Contact Cat  . I respond to most of my emails, however, I reserve the right to not rspond to whack jobs. I keep all information confidential. For those who wish to attack, you'll either be ignored, or, if you are really clever, you'll end up on the Moron Squad page.  Some insults are more entertaining than others. I share with the class.

For those interested: The 13th Mandated Report is out. No government Agency has yet to properly reply to any of them.

Update on Richard LaFuente

Richard LaFuente was freed from prison June 5, 2014 with no real explanation. He had been turned down for parole the previous June & was not due until 2016. He has no adjustment services to leap 30 years into the present.

Freedom is only the beginning. He and the others falsely accused with him need to be exonerated, and the real killers and their accomplices, held accountable.

Pieces of the Ugly Puzzle
--- Printer Version (10)

It’s confounding to most people that those who should be acting on the reports of child abuse, child rapes, child trafficking, and investigating the crimes against children, are instead, refusing to investigate the reports, lying about investigating the reports, harassing those who make the reports, and letting children endure horrendous torture and abuse, which sometimes leads to their deaths by murder or accident.

More confounding to many, is why these agencies, particularly the HHS, DOJ, IHS, FBI are instead, forming as much as possible, a political, financial and physical flying wedge to allow the pedophiles, the abusers, the rapists, the traffickers, to avoid investigations.  Clearly, that is exactly what is happening, and we have seen it, openly, on display where Spirit Lake Reservation is concerned.

We’ve heard of massive document shredding in Tribal Social Services--- but nothing is done. No investigations started. Millions of dollars and hundreds of children not accounted for, and no one is looking for either the money, nor the missing children.

There are children that are known to have been trafficked, some of them stolen on the day they were born, and sold, but all the agencies in the Alphabet Soup, are doing nothing to investigate.  They are all of them, instead, pursuing smear campaigns and ongoing threats and harassment against those who make the reports.  It’s blatant. It’s obvious and it’s corrupt. It’s also system wide and deep, nested and infested into every agency, at every level.

We hear about dozens of 960’s being filed on a single case, hundreds filed on other cases, being ignored, shredded, but not acted on the way the law proscribes them to be acted on.  One 960 should be enough to remove the child immediately from danger.  But no one is looking. Those who dare, are out of a job, harassed, threatened, attacked, and their reputations smeared by their supervisors, and their “Boss’s boss”, as Marrianne McMullen likes to say about herself, as she and those below her engage on multi-level harassment of Thomas Sullivan and anyone else that would dare to do their job and try to protect these children by demanding investigations into the abuse of children and the corruption within the agencies that are supposed to be protecting them.

Now, with yet another infant dead last week, a child whose parents are severely addicted and incapable of caring for themselves, much less an infant, we wonder why that child was sent home with those parents, or left with those parents.  It’s an outrage. People get angry at the parents.

But no one wants to look at Tribal Social Services that ignores the dangers that these tiny babies are placed in, over and over and over again.  No consequences for Melissa Merrick-Brady over this latest dead baby. No consequence to Kevin Dauphinais for the other murdered children… no one is taking responsibility.

“Children are Sacred” they will tell you, but not sacred enough to not be raped, tortured, abused or left in fatally flawed homes where parents are so high they don’t know when they have smothered their own child.

Reports get ignored, children are raped, tortured or killed. And the Head of the ACF, Marrianne McMullen and her Flying Monkeys, set out to silence the man who makes the reports that they ignore.

Thomas Sullivan was told that if he hears about a child that is being abused, rather than filing a report, he should “dial 911”.  I’m sure McMullan and James Murray and George Sheldon are still knee slapping and guffawing at that one. “I know! I know! I got it! Tell him to ‘dial 911’!”  It’s how they entertain themselves. Abuse of those who try to stop the abuse of children has become among the elites.

They want you, me, him, all of us to stop reporting Child Abuse. They don’t want to hear about it. They will, if they hear about it, protect the Predators, the abusers, and the corrupt.  That IS what they are doing.  It is what they have been doing for years. They need to answer as to why they are doing it. Why they are not investigating even the agencies and organizations they fund, for how those millions of dollars are being spent, wasted, embezzled every month.  Not even the corruption bothers them.

The corrupt are their best friends, closest allies. It’s a feeding frenzy where money goes missing by the millions and children end up raped, dead or grow into violent adults, addicted, unable to connect to other Human Beings in ways that are not destructive.

Whatever Evil is making them do that is anyone’s guess, but Evil it is, and Evil is what they do.  And we are all living with the end results of those kinds of bad practices.  Our sense of security is diminished. We hear about more violence, more addictions, more abductions, more sex crimes, more suicides, and no one connects the dots to the children whose cries were ignored, and whose abuses were unending.  We just assume “They chose to be that way.”

The agencies and organizations have, for as long as they have been in existence, in Indian Country and in those corners of poverty where people have little education or limited access to assistance, in those places where children are the most vulnerable are considered Fair Game by people in those agencies that benefit one way or another, from the suffering of children. No one in those agencies is ever held accountable for any of it. Not even when they themselves break the laws and refuse to follow legal protocols, are they ever held accountable. Instead, they become political heavyweights and climb the ladders of success, stepping over hundreds of dead children every year, to do it.

Another recent example of Children being placed in danger by the very agency that should be monitoring all aspects of their safety is the Denver Office of DHS, in Colorado. A story that ABC News has been investigating has made a splash: “Denver DHS Admits Fingerprint Background Check Failures, After Multiple Denials”.

That means they were in fact NOT doing thorough background checks on the homes that children most at risk were being homed---and they were lying about it. 

How did a story like this come to light? How did it take a TV Station to investigate when the departments and agencies that oversee DHS failed to do their job? I’m guessing that people got tired of reporting to higher and higher ups only to be ignored, ridiculed or threatened, perhaps harassed? 

And I am guessing that children have been getting hurt, or placed in homes with criminals and it bothered someone or several “someones” enough that they finally went to the media with what they knew.  People don’t go to the media as a first resort, they go after trying every other avenue, in-house, and reporting to law enforcement as high up as the FBI, and getting no investigations for years, and being harassed for reporting, they finally go public and then everyone acts ‘shocked’ by the revelations when in fact, they were told, time and time again, and refused to act.

When DHS in a major metropolitan area such as Denver, Colorado, dodges the basics in protocols that are supposed to protect children, and then lie about it, repeatedly to anyone that dares question them on it, it is because they feel confident that those above them, perhaps even all the way up to ACF’s McMullen, will gladly look the other way, as children are put in danger.

That agency heads routinely, frequently lie when it comes to how children are not being protected, shows they have an interest in something other than the safety of those children in mind and in practice.

This kind of corruption, and it is corruption, is politically motivated, politically supported within the system, whether it is on a small reservation in North Dakota putting only a few hundred children in danger every year, or in a large metro area as big as Denver, or even bigger if we follow the pattern of corruption, and into every town, city in-between. 

This is what I mean when I say that what is happening on the Rez is putting everyone at risk, because it is happening everywhere, and for the same reason: Corruption.

Corruption in the very agency that is supposed to protect our children. Children who will, (if they survive), grow up to be our future.  Our future will be safer or more violent depending on how they are treated today.

The root of the problem is becoming more and more clear. Ccorruption, in every level that is supposed to oversee child safety & well-being, including law enforcement and programs, are failing and failing due to corruption, and it is costing us billions of tax dollars and a future headed for more and more extreme violence that will affect us directly or indirectly, without exception.  We are paying criminals to create monsters that will directly impact our lives now and in the future.

They will, as they become more and more exposed for their corruption, try to declare that “The System Is Broken”.  The system is NOT broken—it is infested with the corrupt.  The laws are clear, they are just not enforced, and that’s where we must start.  Enforce the laws. Hold accountable those who refuse to investigate. Hold accountable those who commit crimes. Hold accountable those who protect those who are hurting children.  Start there. Create a ‘Study’ later.

The corrupt who infest the power structure of these agencies need to be held accountable for their failures and their harassment of those who dare speak out.  Harassment that has become extreme and even criminal on several occasions.

Old laws and New Laws are worthless if there are no penalties for those who fail to enforce them. If there are no penalties for those who shred and destroy reports and files, what is to stop anyone in those powerful positions from continuing on with the corruption at the expense of children, whose stories only reveal to us when so horrific their torture or death that media displays it for us.  We can prevent it if we demand accountability.  We can prevent it if we demand that the laws be enforced.

In the meantime, we have Senator Heidi Heitkamp, who is thoroughly apprised of the tortures of these children and thinks that instead of enforcing existing laws, or even demanding immediate investigations,  what is needed is more (funding) for cultural and language programs on the rez.

(Remember: If you know of a child that is raped, be sure to recommend cultural and language programs rather than police investigations or law enforcement. It’s the political solution that changes nothing)

Heitkamp was the State Attorney General for North Dakota and she never took action to protect the children on the rez. One wonders if she made it through her entire career in that department without getting a single report?  Or, did she receive several and then, ran for Senator so she could solve the crimes against children by creating more funding for a ‘study’ and more Cultural and Language classes?  

That she can deliver such nonsensical ‘solutions’ with a straight face shows she is well-practiced in distraction techniques. She has either not grasped the severity of child rape on the rez, or she has decided that too many of her political allies would be upset if she demanded investigations. Either way, she deserves to have her motives or her IQ scrutinized—or both.

It is an evil that permeates our government and law enforcement at every level, from the very first contact all the way up to the White House, and it has infested every agency, rooting itself deep inside the power structure, networked into the hierarchies, and political realms, possessing and controlling levers that go into other networks and other realms.  And it has been decades in the making, so don’t think it is one party or one Administration that is responsible. This is not NEW. This is the core of Evil rotting to the point that it is visible on the rez, and in Florida, and in Colorado.  Turn over any rock in any State and it is there as well.

By now it should be obvious that something very, very dark is upset that there is opposition standing up to them, dragging them out into the light.  You cannot get all those highly placed, appointed and elected types, to join together to harass people who are reporting crimes against children, unless it goes to the very top of each agency and to the very people who appointed them, or who recommended them for appointment.

This is not an accident. This is not an oversight. This is repeated, concerted efforts to silence those who are making the reports and demanding investigations.

One of the people who was at the top echelon of Cyber Security for HHS, is a man named Timothy DeFoggi who was the Acting Director, no less, of Cyber Security for HHS, was busted back in March for kiddie porn and worse.

Timothy DeFoggi, 56, was convicted of "engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography, and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography."

It gets worse, much worse:

"DeFoggi even suggested meeting one member in person to fulfill their mutual fantasies to violently rape and murder children," according to the press release.

His main responsibility at HHS? Operating Systems Internet Technology Security Officer (OS ITSO) at Indian Health Services. (IHS).

Let that fantasy of his, “violently raping and murdering children” sink in a bit.

Now, ask yourself this: With the opposition that Thomas Sullivan and others have faced through HHS, IHS in particular, do you think DeFoggi is the ONLY one in that agency at a high level that indulges in this sort of thing?

Do you think that maybe he felt secure enough in his position and power, and his political connections that he felt he could meet up with someone and just go do a few kids?  Do you think he may have already done this before?  

According to this chart he answered essentially to no one.  His boss was/is a political appointee.

They get those top jobs not by merit or qualification, but as we have seen with George Sheldon and Marrianne McMullen, by their political connections. They too, are HHS. You’ve seen them attack those who report and protect those who rape, torture, murder & traffic children. There’s a lot of slime in HHS and much of it appears to have a common bond: Predation of children. It’s become more visible now.

This is not something that just came upon him and he decided to take it for a whirl.  This is a sick, vile man who has been twisted in this way probably most of his life. He had access to all the computers, could check on anyone’s reports or emails that may be reporting on him or trying to investigate him… He could disappear reports with the click of a mouse.  Do you think that he didn’t? Remember: This is a man who wanted to partner up with someone to go viciously rape and murder some kids, while employed at HHS.

Want to bet those kids would have been in Indian Country? I mean, he had the perfect hunting grounds. No one investigates rapes, murders, missing, or trafficked children. Anyone who reports anything amiss, or corrupt, especially if it is a supervisor placing children with pedophiles, is fired. It would be easy to grab or buy a child and carry out this vile fantasy to it’s horrid conclusion. No one would investigate because it happened in Indian Country.

And, if anyone did investigate, chances are they would find a fall guy with a low range IQ and get the USAG to badger him into a confession. Convicting ham sammiches is all it takes to be a USAG in Indian Country. Injustice starts with the USAG and the FBI who favor the politically powerful predators and care nothing for the lives of children damaged, destroyed or lost.  Frame-ups and false convictions are how the corrupt stay in power and the people stay quiet. “Don’t get involved, they will destroy you.” “You’re just an Indian. He’s wearing a suit. No one will believe you.”

DeFoggi, I have no doubt, would have acted out in Indian Country. He may already have at some point, but the investigation into his behaviors didn’t go that far. They really didn’t want to know ‘who else’ or ‘where else’ or ‘if’…

As we have seen with Betty Jo Krenz, who lost her job because she dared legally report crimes against children, once a person is fired, they are then harassed, stalked, run off the road, smeared, threatened, and worse.  So, yeah, where better to ‘go hunting’ than in Indian Country. DeFoggi is very well connected. And he knows how it works: Anyone reports is fired, threatened, harassed, intimidated, smeared and not just by the Tribal Authorities, but by the FBI Agents themselves and by the USAG, such as Timothy Purdon, himself.

A man with fantasies that sick, has acted them out more than once. He felt safe in recruiting a partner to act it out with him. That tells me, he’s done it before and gotten away with it, and felt that no one could touch him.

Do you think he’s alone in this? 

Look again at how McMullen, Sheldon, Murray, Purdon, and a whole raft of FBI Agents have banded together to protect the predators and pedophiles on Spirit Lake Reservation.  It’s a reflex for them. He could count on them.

They are compelled to do it because they are protecting themselves by protecting the predators. They benefit either directly or indirectly from the abuses of these children not being reported or investigated.  If they didn’t, then they would do their jobs and stop trying to stop others from doing their jobs.

One Cockroach

DeFoggi was just ONE. You know there are more. There has to be. He fits so perfectly the profile of the predators that HHS, IHS, FBI and DOJ, and the Head of the ACF, among others, have been protecting in Indian Country.  

The Spirit Lake Chairman, Russ McDonald, has lied to Congress in order to smear the good name and reputation of Thomas Sullivan. Did he concoct those lies himself? Or did he conspire with agency heads to come up with them? He’s going to need a lawyer. I hear that Casey Family Programs is supplying him with an attorney for some reason. I wonder what and I wonder why.

 (Note: Russ McDonald, who repeatedly says “Children are Sacred” mantra, recently disowned the step-daughter named after him, Leandra, after she accidentally ran over her nephew in one of those ever-changing stories of what ‘really’ happened. He also disowned the baby that was killed. He would not allow his name “ be attached to any of this mess!” Does it get any more gutless than that?)

It’s like that Rock they have all been under, has been kicked over. One gets caught and people see the rest of these slimy things go screaming for cover, and are shocked. 

But really, no one should be shocked, after all, we have been watching the behaviors of those who have the most to fear from anyone turning over any Rocks and investigating any corruption or crimes against children. We’ve seen it escalated to higher and higher levels.

The thing is, DeFoggi was sloppy. He was careless, and he should have been caught a long time ago. I wonder how many had reported him and were fired? Their reports vanished from the servers? I wonder who knew about it and didn’t report it and got a raise, or something extra tasty as a reward?

How many people knew about him and his proclivities, and were covering up for him all this time? And why?

No investigation will go that deep. They don’t want to know. They don’t want to be sure.  They know it’s deep and wide, and very, very dark.

It’s like finding a cockroach in your kitchen. You know there’s more. You know there’s a whole nest or even several nests. You would think they’d want to root it all out and make it clean, wouldn’t you? But they don’t. They want you to believe there’s only one cockroach and they got him. *Applause*

Just like Sandusky. They want you to think that there was only that single person and not a whole network that was engaged in the same behaviors or worse, and covering up for him, protecting him and protecting themselves at the same time.

(Remember: USAG Ray Gricar was investigating this when he vanished, never to be found, his laptop missing, his computer at work scrubbed clean.  Who cleaned that computer and erased his work from the servers? That’s not something he could have done. An OS ITSO could do it though. Ponder that.)

The CISO is a political appointee. Those directly under him are long-term contract employees. They know the complex systems better than he ever can or will.  How many others like him are infested in that agency? Dare we look? Or shall we just do the Perp Walk with him and everyone think that the problem is now completely solved? What do you think?

There will be no ‘housecleaning’ at HHS or IHS or even ACF because they don’t want to know. They already know there’s more ugly there than you can shake a stick at.  They just don’t want you to know it. But you know it because you have seen the results. You have seen the murdered and tortured children. You have seen the harassment and threats aimed at those who dared to try and prevent the rapes and murders.  Will the ‘repeated lies’ soothe your rage?

Fortunately, for the Children in the Denver area, someone there did not buy the lies and they kept going at DHS until they were forced to admit they were lying.  How many children have died, been raped, abused, tortured while they played their political shell games?

Now, step back and take a look at the national map. It’s everyone’s concern.  We pay their salaries, they lie to us, they lie about protecting the children, they refuse to enforce the laws against child rape, they harass professionals; doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, teachers, support staff who report misconduct or failures. Can you imagine how much worse it is for the child who tries to report abuse?

This evil has a grip on the levers of power in every level of government. They have groomed, protected their own colleagues, and maintain a wall of lies and threats to protect very profitable corruption that is also politically very powerful.

That’s why they don’t want the reports. That’s why they shred files. That’s why they harass anyone that dares to speak up and try to stop it. That’s why they threaten and smear anyone that dares to try and stop these crimes against children:

Because they are all so deep in those nests, so entwined politically, financially and criminally, that they can’t survive if the nest is revealed and they are seen with all those cockroaches, doing cock-roachie things.  They’ll fall like dominoes, rolling over on one another to save themselves, and they all know it. They know the character of their cohorts the way they know their own: WEAK, GREEDY, Willing to sell out to save themselves. 

Maintaining this corruption is expensive.  We’ll learn more about that when we start auditing them and their offices. Start with the Rez and you’ll end up in the offices and homes of the most powerful people in the nation, I guarantee it. But we can’t begin to fix it if we don’t look directly at it, and see who it is and what they have been doing. We have to stop buying their lies. It’s cost us billions and it’s cost us our future.

We have got to stop applauding when they ‘get one’ and try to convince us there are not more, and more, and more…

You’ve seen their behaviors. You’ve seen the cockroaches, and now another one way high up where information is received, stored, created… did you ever see one cockroach and think: “He’s all by himself and there are no more like him”?  Me neither.  

Now you see an entire agency in Denver, Colorado.  You remember the story done by the Miami Herald in Florida…Add that to all you have already learned about: Threats, harassment and intimidation.

It’s a criminally corrupt system infesting our government and our society. The more they can make us ignore it, the more they will keep doing it. It will get worse. It already has. Outraged? Scared? Speak out. Demand accountability.

You know there’s more. Lots more and more ugly. The ‘dots’ are being revealed throughout the system. It’s time we all saw the connections.  The most common connection among them all is Indian Country--- where “Children Are Sacred”, and government money flows like a polluted river, into the pockets of the most corrupt, most abusive, most criminal--- and then back into the coffers of politicians who keep it all in place, as they climb ever higher into those other nests of corruption and influence.

If we can stop it there, at the rez, we can stop it everywhere. If they can stop us there, they can stop us everywhere.

Pieces of this puzzle are revealed enough that we can start working from the edges to the center. It won’t be pretty, but if we are going to save our future, we have to see what it really is and work to root it out of every nook and cranny, and every high tower, and in every seat of power in which it resides.

They’ve got key people in key positions that cover for, protect them and vice-versa. That’s how it got to be this bad. Imagine having someone as a OS ITSO, able to cover your tracks for you. You’d protect him, right? And if he got caught? You’d make sure he didn’t want to talk or that he couldn’t. 

DeFoggi gets sentenced in November. Let’s see. He’s just one of many, many more. He just happened to get dragged out of the shadows and into the light because he discussed his plans to viciously rape and murder children with an undercover agent.  How many times has he discussed it with like-minded? How many more like him are not yet dragged out into the light? How many worked with him or at that same agency or other related agencies? (Or did you think that all these highly placed appointees were protecting the corrupt and harassing those who report from IHS, HHS, ACF, DOJ, FBI, DHS etc, as a ‘coincidence’?)

How many of those who want to hurt children are working in the very agencies that are supposed to be protecting the most vulnerable? And why are those who report them being harassed, intimidated and threatened by the agencies that are supposed to be investigating?

Why does Russell McDonald say “Children are Sacred” but refuses to have child rapes on the rez investigated? Why does he disown the child he raised because she accidentally ran over his grandchild? And why did he disown that grandchild?

Because: “Children are Sacred” unless there’s a messy death connected to them. In that case, he disowns. Children are sacred and easy to disown, forget, if politically inconvenient. Children are Sacred and worth a whole lot of money to the corrupt in agencies and organizations that fail them, intentionally, for over 40 years.

You know where to find me.
