FOR sure the tranquility of the Public has been devastated by AUSTERITY and now followed by the FBI Raids that both can be attributed to our Governor who has been deemed a “Godfather” by Kandit News due to the RICO Statue he is facing which is Federal Law for the purpose of prosecuting Criminal Organizations — U Go Gov. you’re in the big league now for TRUE!

I have known our Governor has ULTERIOR MOTIVES for being Governor ever since he REFUSED to have a special election when Governor Inos died and he made an arbitrary decision for HIMSELF to try and be a three-term Governor. A plan to figuratively become the Godfather of the CNMI which is why he has constantly been busy building his POWER BASE through BIASED appointments of “GOP Forever” people and expanding his Political Real Estate with the HELP of IPI who was doing all the paying to get our prominent citizens on board. It is actually common knowledge in the CNMI that you MUST have a GOP contact if you want one of the better jobs in our Government, for TRUE! Just like in the movies and even in real life, “it’s not what you know but who you know” to get ahead in the CNMI just ask Mr. Clyde Norita. It should be as clear as the morning sun with no clouds for all voters to see that our Governor has been behaving much like some kind of Mafia Godfather using his emissaries like “hit men” to get votes figuratively. It makes a lot of sense now why the Governor seems to always put someone in between him and the problems like he did with austerity using his staff and FEMA and with the FBI raids he used the Lt. Governor just like the real Godfathers used “people buffers” to protect and deflect issues.

We saw this Godfather mentality before with the last Democrat Governor, who thought he OWNED the CNMI, not in a corruptive way but theoretically. He made arbitrary decisions that were not wanted by the People which included spending over six million on lobbyist mainly fighting a hopeless battle against the Feds and even asserted his desire to Separate the CNMI from the United States. Maybe, he scared voters to death which is why the Democrat Party went downhill after his loss for a second term. Needless to say, the GOP has taken full advantage of the Democrats’ fall from grace in the executive office but I hope and pray the FBI and our own AG will give voters incentive to SERIOUSLY reconsider the Democrats in the mid-term and the general elections. I say this because the GOP Organization is the biggest threat now that the Godfather’s wings are being clipped figuratively.

I guess our Governor is not a real student of CNMI’s Political history or he would know better than to start courting lobbyist WITHOUT the support of ANYONE, not even HIS own GOP Legislature. The Governor just goes off on his own courting a lobbyist which truly gives the impression of our Governor’s mentality of figuratively being the Godfather of the CNMI. He even had the NERVE to have bodyguard(S), more than one bodyguard like he was a real Godfather, with him at Bourbon Steak restaurant in Washington, D.C. on April 4, 2017 with Corey Lewandowski. A meal that We the people of the Commonwealth paid $1,823.90 for this one dinner. I don’t want to even THINK about how many other breakfasts, lunches, and dinners we don’t know about YET that were not necessary! Why couldn’t they have just met in Lewandowski’s office or better yet at our Washington Delegate’s Office but that sound too much like common sense and team work. This is just ONE example of our Governor’s seemingly Godfather mentality and he has been in office for SEVEN years so just use your imagination and you will probably still be short of the real amount he has WASTED unnecessarily playing Mr. Big & Important on our dollar!

There has been a lot of talk in the community about the 4 million dollar land deal that our Governor is alleged to have engineered which was exposed by Bloomberg. The appointment of Serafin Camacho to Zoning, the lease of land for 4million when the least doesn’t even START until 2042 — meaning Mr. Camacho who claims he only got 500 but owns land that he can use for any reason including borrowing MORE money BUT what happened to the rest of the 4 million is the real question. Anyway, if it looks, smells and sounds like corruption then you know what they say about that: if it looks like one, smells like one and sounds like one, it probably is Corruption! Given the Governor actually set all of this in motion from his dealings especially with IPI it is only fitting when you see the Godfather picture of our Governor on the Kandit News Post in relationship with the 4million dollar giveaway — check it out for yourself.

Kandit has also confirmed the list deemed “the Dirty 30” who were subpoenaed by the FBI as part of their investigation. With most if not all of these people being paid for basically the same thing “consulting” you don’t need to be a detective or FBI agent to know that NO Company on this small island needs so many consultants as the list looks like, smells like and seemingly acts like corruption within the GOP camp figuratively. Kandit is doing some REAL investigative reporting which is something I haven’t seen on this scale and in such detail in the Marianas since I arrived here some 30 years ago. Kandit has even dug up information on a business in Colorado that could also be part of the investigation given the FBI are going back to September of 2013 — WOW! This is a very interesting date as it goes back to when our Governor first started dealing with IPI on their campaign so it seems the IPI & Governor’s plan was actually hatched much longer ago than We the People may know. It is even getting clearer to me why the FBI are using the RICO Statue as there has to have been an ORGANIZED Plan (Godfather & Mafia Style) given all the players and the large amounts of money that was changing hands that we already know about. If you want more details about the house just visit Kandit News on their Posts Page.

But the final nail in the coffin of a would-be Godfather figuratively is the FBI RICO Investigation along with foreign money being invested into his and/or the GOP Political campaign. As I have already said, the RICO Statue is for “criminal organizations” like the Mafia, Biker & Street Gangs and now a Governor — WOW! In a way we should hope for his acquittal because if he is convicted, he will make History, FOX and CNN as the first Governor being convicted under the RICO Statue — well, FOX may not run the story because he is GOP as we know how they roll with the GOP.

A special THANKS again Senator Manglona for continuing to press the issue of our Governor being investigated as you are the only one in the Senate saying ANYTING and the rest are acting like “church-mice” that you never see or hear-for TRUE! The FBI raids are MONUMENTAL and they don’t have anything to say or do about it when the People they work for NEED for them to be saying and doing something! If it was easy to be a Senator, we could elect anyone and WE the People didn’t elect you Senators to say and do NOTHING especially when there is a crisis in the CNMI, duh! To be continued: One People One Direction
