DNRC official: Is he stifling public debate?

Print Article

Predictably, the DNRC’s John Tubbs is in full mutual defense mode of the governments’ non-negotiable, “negotiated” settlement. We get it, the deep pockets of the state, tribal and federal governments will be used to attempt to shut down any efforts by the peasants to shift the debate to a positive solution to the mess that the state government created.

We’d like to thank Tubbs for further exposing the tactics used by government to ensure that the public does not have the information necessary to make an informed decision, or to understand what is really going on with the CSKT Compact. Instead, they use tactics that are intended to stifle public debate by casting dispersions upon the process by which the People’s Compact came about.

Note one thing in common with all these attacks on the People’s Compact. There never is any discussion of the substantive issues addressed by it, or any defense of the dirty details of the CSKT Compact monstrosity that they continue to try to force through the system and upon the people.

The truth is that the CSKT Compact endorsed by state, federal and tribal government violates the due process and equal protection guarantees in the constitution. If that isn’t bad enough, it appears that Mr. Tubbs would like to take that one step further by violating our First Amendment free speech protections as well.

Why would Tubbs want to stifle public debate on such an important issue? Is it possible that he and the DNCR are afraid that if the issues are openly debated, too many problems with their “negotiated” settlement would at last be exposed to the light of day?
