What other equine abuses aren’t covered by mainstream media? Find out from Susan Wagner, Pres. of Equine Advocates, & Susan Kayne, creator of TV show “Real Horse Rescues,” on Wild Horse & Burro Radio (Wed., 9/2/15)

Our guests tonight are Susan Wagner, President & Founder of Equine Advocates, and Susan Kayne, creator of TV show Real Horse Rescues on ABC-WTEN, who will talk about the mainstream media’s poor (if any) coverage of horse meat in the U.S. food supply, over 90,000 PMU mares trapped in torturous conditions while having their pregnant mare urine collected in China, and other equine welfare issues.

Susan Kayne began creating equine media productions in 2003, and her signature series, Unbridled, aired for 10-seasons and earned multiple awards.  Her present day ventures include Real Horse Rescues on ABC-WTEN in upstate New York. Kayne has hosted shows for the Capital OTB Network, served as a feature reporter for Outdoor Life Network, and has given expert equine commentary for news outlets, professional panels, and educational institutions.  Her advocacy on behalf of thoroughbreds earned her a photo on Page One of the New York Times on 9/22/2012.

Flibanserin (Addyi), the Alleged Libido Pill For Women: What Women Need to Know Before Asking for it

Leave a comment

Duty to Warn

new-logo25 Gary G. Kohls, MD

_______________________________________________

On August 18, 2015, the FDA proudly announced that they had approved (after 2 previous rejections) a new drug whose generic name is flibanserin (Addyi will be the brand name when it comes to your local drug store in mid-October). The only drug that Sprout Pharmaceuticals has ever marketed, flibanserin is purported to treat a “disease” called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). The drug has been approved only for pre-menopausal women. The company will offer the drug in a 100 mg dose, to be swallowed once per night, no matter if sexual encounter is anticipated or not. This pill is not a female Viagra!

In a related story, two days after the FDA’s formal approval to market their only drug, Sprout announced that it had sold itself to a wholly-owned subsidiary of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. for $1 billion dollars cash plus a portion of future earnings.

Below is some essential background information about the drug that hasn’t been well covered in the mass media. Every interested patient (and their prescribing practitioners) should know about this information before they ask for a prescription from their psychiatrist, OB-GYN, internist, family physician or nurse practitioner.

Some of the downsides of this new, soon-to-be blockbuster drug

For one thing, the drug will be expensive, indeed, it will unaffordable unless health insurance companies can be hood-winked to pay for it. If they do, look for premiums to rise! Cindy Whitehead, the CEO of Sprout has stated that it will be charging pharmacies $400 for a 30 pill supply [which equates to over $13 per pill!]. Nobody knows what the mark-up will be at the pharmacy.

Rutherford Institute Appeals to U.S. Supreme Court on Behalf of Marine Who Was Targeted by FBI, Secret Service & Arrested for Criticizing Gov’t on Facebook

1 Comment

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of decorated Marine Brandon Raub who was seized by a swarm of Secret Service, FBI and local police officials and involuntarily committed to a mental institution for a week after posting controversial song lyrics and political views critical of the government on his Facebook page.

In asking the Supreme Court to reinstate Brandon Raub v. Michael Campbell, Rutherford Institute attorneys are challenging a ruling by a lower court judge who characterized the Institute’s concerns over government suppression of dissident speech as “far-fetched.” Moreover, Institute attorneys are urging the Court to establish standards to guide and constrain mental health professionals when they seek to commit individuals and to prevent commitment on the basis of a person’s exercise of his right to free speech.

The Rutherford Institute’s petition for writ of certiorari in Raub v. Campbell is available at www.rutherford.org.

In his 2013 book The Grand Deception, Mujahid Kamran describes some of the workings of what Churchill called the “High Cabal” that, unseen, really controls the world and, in particular, some of the means used historically by one of its affiliates and franchises, the United States of America, the takeover of which began in embryo about a century and a third ago. Dr. Kamran knowingly lauds the American people as overwhelmingly strong preferers of peace, harmony, and tolerance (though the propensity for spontaneous violence in some quarters throughout is fostered by policies instilling domestic resentment and grievance).

“Whenever US governments wish to shove the US into a great war,” Kamran writes, its agencies, through planned efforts arrange for incidents that lead to the loss of innocent American lives [and] resulting anger … diverted against the ‘enemy’.” And he notes that this tried and true practice, not having gone unnoticed, contributed mightily to widespread suspicion regarding the authorship of 9/11. And in addition, I might add, to growing suspicion of any and all violent incidents killing Americans mostly, but not solely – which happen almost every day now – and that the print and electronic press obligingly make their central stories.

To my mind, to say that the hidden powers-that-be have by now overplayed their hand and begun to wear out the deceptive value of this much-used trick, employed lately for all sorts of apparent purposes, would not be an exaggeration. And just as most came to the tardy realization that the carnival magician was insulting people’s intelligence to separate them from the coins in their pockets a century and more ago, fewer are being fooled every day now. As for us, we can only point out the trick when we spot it to all and sundry and strive toward the end that the no-longer-fooled will soon comprise an irate quorum in our society. Encouraging in this regard is the fact that our term “false flag” has recently crept its way into general American and British conversation.

Politically, the controlling élite’s strategy of bankrolling and owning tried and true groomed and initiated secret status-quo, openly change-agent winning candidates, relied on to protect their patrimonial status, has begun to wear through admitting sunlight across the western world. One current harbinger of this is the shockingly successful rousing social democrat Labour Party leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn in Britain. And then there’s the at least putative Greek rebellion, probably not over yet. Other examples, of course, are Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, surging respectively in defiance of the owned establishment stiffs in the two big parties in the U.S. The story in each case, regardless of precise ideology or program, is the electorate’s brewing disdain for and cold rejection of élite control – of being herded.

But the High Cabal directing the élite we see (even if barely) contemn democratic oppositions as you contemn the stratagems of ants. In ruthlessly forging the world they demand, they will not be mocked, even if by surges among us millions strong. If the wave of rejection rises too high to manipulate or divert aside, they will declare martial law, suspend constitutional documents (“goddam pieces of paper”) outright, and proceed.

According to another salient 2013 book, On Western Terrorism: From Hiroshima to Drone Warfare, by Chomsky and Andre Vitchek, upwards of 60 million deaths have occurred due to U.S. military and CIA interventions since. 1945. “Would they really murder three thousand of their own people?” you ask. The next step for controlling élites in the west and China against finally awakened, balking needlessly excess populations to be cut back will be the imposition of the chip Aaron Russo warned us of that they can simply turn off at will. End of story. Please tell me it isn’t so!

The truth matters NOW – now get excited!

Wild Horse Freedom Federation joins fight to save historic wild herd from extinction, again

Leave a comment

Wild-Horse-Freedom-FederationPO Box 390, Pinehurst Texas 77362

For Immediate Release: August 24, 2015

Wild Horse Freedom Federation Partners with The Cloud Foundation to Block BLM’s Plan to Zero Out Colorado’s Unique West Douglas Herd

Pinehurst, TX – Since 2010 wild equine advocacy groups Wild Horse Freedom Federation (WHFF) and The Cloud Foundation (TCF) have consistently worked together in a unified effort to thwart the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) attempts to totally remove Colorado’s West Douglas herd from their rightful range for the exclusive benefit of “Welfare” ranchers and special interest groups.

Although this legal battle has been ongoing for almost 20 years the BLM has, as of late, accelerated their efforts to destroy this federally protected, historic herd so that private cattle owners and extraction interests can declare the public land to be their own.

Citing that the wild horses are damaging the range due to over grazing the BLM has failed to acknowledge that the number of horses pale compared to the sizable herd of private, “welfare” cattle that are allowed to graze on the public land for the bulk of the year at mere pennies a day.

“Using the BLM’s own statistics, the wild horses are out numbered by a minimum of 4 to 1 by the welfare cattle allowed to graze on the horse’s range.” states R.T. Fitch, President and cofounder of WHFF, “The concept of the Federal Government destroying this herd to line the pockets of a few of their bedfellows ought to spark outrage in each and every American’s heart and soul. Enough is enough and we are making a stand.”

Renowned equine photographer and Director of Field Documentation for WHFF, Carol Walker agrees; “The BLM must not be allowed to zero out this herd simply because it is ‘inconvenient’ to manage, or because it is pandering to cattle ranchers and extraction companies. This would set a very damaging precedent for our few remaining wild horses and burros.”

The BLM intends to commence with their removal operation next month.

Hour 1: Wade Ayer: 

A letter to Congressman Glen Grothman of WI

For the past 2 years, i have been working with State Representative Christine Sinicki on Assembly Bill 255, which offers surgical patients the right to have their procedure video and audio recorded. the purpose of this proposed law is to protect patients and medical staff should accusations of malpractice arise.

As the founder of The National Organization for Medical Malpractice victims I scheduled a meeting with Congressman Glen Grothman. This meeting was scheduled for August 21, 2015 in his Fond Du Lac office. I have been preparing for this meeting for well over a month.

On Thursday August 20, 2015 I received a call from an aide in his office, who explained that the congressman was canceling the meeting because he needed time to prepare. He had well over a month to “prepare”.

The aide also explained that they didn’t know who was coming to the meeting, which made the congressman uncomfortable. I explained it would be just myself and Mr. Chris Nowakowski, whose wife died of possible malpractice at a Wisconsin hospital. Why is the Congressman afraid to meet with the people he was elected to represent?

One has to wonder why he is suddenly afraid to meet with us? Did he get directions from a lobbyist or some other special interest?

This meeting was meant to educate policymakers on an issue that is extremely important to my family and families across the State of Wisconsin, It’s unfortunate that the Congressman has chosen to dodge, deflect and downright ignore this discussion.

I was truly hoping that he would be professional and follow the example of Congressman Reid Ribble and take the time to learn.

Below, find the list of both National and International interest in this story.

Sincerely,

Wade Ayer

If law wouldn’t prosecute this case, law won’t prosecute any medical malpractice death. I want your stories. http://www.nmmaa.org/   The primary goal of the National Association for Medical Malpractice Victims, Inc. is to build and foster a culture of philanthropy and create social change.

Medical mistakes are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US

She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Theater Arts from Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, her Master’s Degree in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California, and her Educational Counseling Certification from the University of La Verne in La Verne, California. Ms. Muhammad has devoted over 25 years to working with children who have difficult behaviors and other life struggles, while providing their parents with parent education and support . Ms. Muhammad has provided counseling services in domestic violence shelters, and she coaches domestic violence victims in an effort to provide them with prevention and intervention strategies for self-awareness and safety. She currently has a book available on Kindle, titled Mirror/Mirror II, a text/workbook for women who wish to heal the wounds and move beyond domestic violence.

Ms. Muhammad is an adjunct professor at the University of LaVerne in LaVerne , California, and she has served as a counselor/coach in a variety of school districts and county agency settings working with children K-12 and their families. Ms. Muhammad has extensive experience in providing a variety of counseling and educational services to foster youth, and it was during her 12 years with Los Angeles County Office of Education/Foster Youth Services, that Ms. Muhammad became aware of and concerned about the massive psychotropic drugging of children who reside in out of home placements. This particular interest in the psychotropic drugging of foster children who have no voice and no power, is directly encouraged and sustained by her collaborations with other professionals and professional organizations who have similar interests and concerns. These collaborations and affiliations has supported her in becoming a voice for foster children who are the seriously silenced victims, due to the administration and misrepresentation of so-called “medications” (psychotropic drugs) that serve as nothing more than chemical restraints.

Ms. Muhammad’s next book, Wake Up and Smell The Cocoa, a brief handbook exposing the childhood ADHD myth and the dangers of psychotropic drugs, will also be available on Kindle in September of this year. Persons interested in online virtual office counseling and consultations services can find Ms. Muhammad at www.theCounselor.com.

Corporate Sociopaths Out of Minnesota!

Duty to Warn

Polluting Mining Corporations like PolyMet and Glencore Meet the Definition of Sociopath

new-logo25kohlsGary G. Kohls, MD

“Slavery is the legal fiction that a person is property. Corporate personhood is the legal fiction that property is a person.” — Anonymous

________________________________________________________

In 2010 the pro-corporate Roberts’ 5/4 Supreme Court decided, in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission ruling that favored right-wing multimillionaire businessmen and amoral multinational corporations by making it easier for them to steal US elections by allowing unlimited, anonymous monetary contributions to political campaigns, political action groups and politicians.

This ruling, called by many fair-minded observers to be the worst Supreme Court decision of the past century, has emboldened the already powerful and corruptible corporations (that already have dominion over the economy) to now also be able to thoroughly bribe any number of favored pro-corporate politicians to do their will but also to more effectively brain-wash voters through multi-million dollar ad campaigns (that can’t be effectively countered by small contributions from average voters).

The US Supreme Court has thus made legal the absurd notion that inanimate paper corporations like PolyMet and Glencore should have the same privileges (but not the same responsibilities) as living humans. Both of those out-or-state companies are potential despoilers of northern Minnesota’s irreplaceable wetlands, rivers, aquifers and aboriginal land and water rights.

After the ruling came down, there was only a brief bit of outrage from the so-called national and state leadership of our essentially “one-party system” (one-party, that is, when it comes to the Republican and Democratic Party’s corporate and militarist agendas).

What Should be the Punishment for Corporate Entities That Plunder, Rape and Pillage?

But if corporate America has new privileges, shouldn’t it be honoring the responsibilities of personhood as well?

Any thinking person would agree that if any entity enjoys the privileges of a human, it should also bear the same responsibilities as humans. Thus it should incur the same punishments as individuals do when it hurts people, commit crimes, poisons the water, fouls the air or rapes the land?

One of the rare victories against corporate giants occurred at Shapleigh, Maine, when that town managed to protect their water rights from the insatiable water-extracting corporate giant Nestle. (See video and more information on this episode at: (http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/40335).

Nestle, one of many multinational corporate exploiters around the world, has no allegiance to any state or municipality or any location where it tries to extract water or minerals that never were theirs to begin with. But when the minerals are gone and the water has been used up or polluted, Nestle, PolyMet, Glencore, et al  will be long gone, which has always been the case of giant resource-extractors and polluters like Exxon/Mobil, Shell, Chevron, British Petroleum, Halliburton, Deep Water Horizon, Coca-Cola, Perrier or whatever other corporate intruder that covets the people’s resources.

And who benefits? Why, of course, the major benefactors will be faceless, out-or-state investors, corporate shareholders and CEOs living and doing business at some luxurious corporate headquarters, none of whom will have to live with the poisoned environment that they will be leaving behind.

Move to Amend: Overturning Citizens United

Shapleigh, Maine’s  small victory against injustice should inspire the rest of us to do what must be done if America’s fragile democracy is ever to thrive again. The outrageous Citizens United decision must be overturned with a constitutional amendment. (See www.movetoamend.org for more.) The future of the nation, our children, the planet, our drinking water, natural habitat and aboriginal rights are all at stake.

Exploitive corporations don’t really seem to care.
