Part II –

Public Guardian imprisons & isolates Gisela Riordan

Linda Kincaid

In 2010, Santa Clara County Public Guardian Donald Moody petitioned for conservatorship of Gisela Riordan.  Based on false allegations by Court Reporter Herlinda Acevedo, Judge Thomas Cain approved the petition.  With the stroke of a pen, Moody had complete control over Gisela’s life.

Moody immediately seized Gisela’s bank accounts.  He evicted her son and sold their home the following year.   Gisela languishes in isolation.  For two and a half years, Moody has denied Gisela’s right to visitation, phone calls, and mail.  Consistent with his wholesale violation of civil rights, Moody denied Gisela’s right to vote in 2012.

Moody imprisoned and isolated Gisela at Villa Fontana, a secured residential care facility that will violate the law in exchange for payment.  Villa Fontana blatantly violates personal rights of residents.  They refuse to discuss those violations with elder advocates.

April 27 – 30, 2012:  Jennifer Lan & Violation of Resident’s Personal Rights

This reporter temporarily established contact with Gisela by arriving at Villa Fontana on a Friday evening, shortly after a visit by Deputy Public Guardian Rebecca Pisano-Torres.  The Villa Fontana night staff assumed I was with the Public Guardian’s office, and they allowed me to enter.

When I first approached Gisela, she was bewildered that anyone would come to see her.  She was horribly lonely and sobbed for over an hour, clutching my arm and begging me not to forget her.  She demanded I promise that I would visit her again.  Sadly, the Public Guardian has prevented my keeping that promise.

On Monday, Villa Fontana staff recognized me as an elder advocate.  Employee Jennifer Lan, accompanied by four male staffers, entered Gisela’s room and ordered me to leave.  I guided Lan to a poster of the residents’ rights  located in the facility lobby.  More

To Slay a Genetically Modified Monster

Or, why California’s Proposition 37 is important to the rest of the world

A landmark independent study by Canadian doctors published in the peer-reviewed journal Reproductive Toxicology this May found that toxins from soil bacterium that had been engineered into genetically modified (GM or GMO) Bt corn to kill pests was present in the bloodstream of 93 percent of pregnant women as well as in 80 percent of their fetal cord blood.
It was the first human clinical trial of genetically modified food; though humanity has been eating it for almost 16 years.
During the interim, manufacturers of GMOs refused to allow independent labs in the US to test their “patented seeds” to see if they posed a danger for consumption or whether or not they could cause cancer or trigger unknown or long-term health problems for adults; or harm fetuses, newborns, and children. . .unless researchers signed an agreement allowing the manufacturer to review and approve the results of the study.

European countries ran independent lab tests on animals fed GMOs anyway.
The results weren’t pretty

Rubber stamped by the FDA, GMO seed manufacturers and Big Agra began feeding Americans unlabeled GMO food during the 1990s.  Groundwork for this scheme was laid during the 1970s and continues to date.
Politically appointed personnel connected to the biotech industry were quietly placed at the FDA, USDA, and other key positions in Washington by elected shills slathered with campaign donations from the biotech industry and Monsanto—the world’s largest GM seed manufacturer—to facilitate the introduction of GMO food into the world.
GMOs were subsequently declared “. . .essentially equivalent to natural food . . .” or words to that effect . . . and Monsanto was given the green light to release its genetically modified seed into national and world food markets.
GMOs and their derivatives quickly found their way into 80-85% of what America ate.

With no labeling.

Thus America became Monsanto’s fiat lab for genetically modified food; their long-term clinical study. That’s why GMO-seed manufacturers quietly dumped the lion’s share of their toxic seeds into North America, Latin America, and India ; selling it to farmers as an agricultural Valhalla; “a green revolution”; knowing full well possible dangers could develop from the consumption of this food; all the while keeping the public beneath its toadstool.

It’s also why GMOs haven’t been labeled! in the United States. Other nations, once they realized the potential dangers of GM food, put labels on the food and Monsanto’s markets dried up because grocers refused to carry it when consumers refused to buy it.

Here’s an accurate one hour documentary on the implications of this for humanity .

Why weren’t Americans told about GMO food? More

Vote all you want: The flight plan doesn’t change

Vote all you want, the flight plan does not change no matter who wins.  We got us a big election coming up and of course the country is dividing itself right down the middle at least in some areas. For most of us out here this coming election means nothing.  The usual arguments over whether we are flying headlong into socialism or, if we are in fact in the throws of fascism seem to have lost their appeal.  Most have realized that whether socialism or fascism the end result is the same; a ruling class and the rest of us servants.  It just depends on which sales pitch appeals to you. For most of us, we have had it with the snake oil politicians and their ever changing sales pitch’s.

Fascism, the overtaking of government by corporations, is hidden behind euphoric,  glorious terms;  Free markets, free trade, globalism and the world economy.  Most who subscribe to this pitch appear to be fearful of being cut out of the action, maybe not getting a piece of the global pie or at least a piece as big as they thought they should get.  Socialism, the plan for the common people, will see many fall never to rise again.

In 2010, even many hard-core Republicans were relieved to see the end of the Bush/Cheney neo-cons and the unending assaults on freedom and our rights.  Eight years of what was, in my opinion, the most treacherous, murderous, pathologically evil cabal that had seized control of our country, was finally over.  What we were to find out was that it would only be continued under the new president, and taken so much further.

The election of Obama gave the country its first sense of hope after eight years of massive walls of lies, deceit, manipulation and some of the most corrupt individuals to ever find their way into our government.  We replaced the neo-cons with Obama/Biden.  We should have listened more closely to that victory speech, but we didn’t.  We were too relieved, too hopeful and far too enthralled with this new president and the promises made; promises we thought meant a return to liberty, to integrity and honor.  We should have listened more closely and not allowed our emotions to cloud our critical thinking.

Fundamentally changing

Obama asked in his acceptance speech if we were ready to join him in fundamentally changing our country.  What did we think he meant?  Did any one of us think to ask….fundamentally change it how? More
