Join us this evening as Tracey Miller returns to the show to discuss the realities of retaliation against families and victims for speaking out and exposing the abuse and fraud in guardianship.

Families across the country have been targeted through the courts for exposing the rampant abuse of “wards” by those who use the system to profit.  Using character assassination, unfounded charges of neglect, abuse and exploitation, those who fight for the rights of the ward are systematically  attacked by the predators.  No evidence needed; none ever produced.  In fact, most “probate” courts never even require any evidence to be produced by those making the charges. Supposedly, the predators word is enough to enter the charges as fact in the courts.

Tracey and I will be talking about the very real threat of physical retaliation as families fight back against a growing and highly protected system of human trafficking for profit that operates with the cooperation and facilitation of the probate and family courts.

Speaking out?  It could get you hurt!

BLM contractor Gunnison prison caught with “hands in the cookie jar.”

While BLM spokesman Tom Gorey seemingly frets that it will “complicate national efforts to make sure there is enough off-range holding capacity for wild horses and burros that are removed off public ranges,” he failed to mention that the final report of the Department of Interior Office of Inspector General (OIG) audit of Utah Correctional Industries (UCI), in which about $2 million dollars in costs submitted (and paid with taxpayer’s money) was questioned as being seemingly illegal, was issued Sept. 27, 2013.  That’s almost a year ago.

In this report, the OIG pointed out that “we found that UCI’s accounting systems do not fully comply with the standards set forth in 43 C.F.R. § 12.60 for financial reporting, budget control, and allowable costs.”

Why did it take the BLM about 6 years to figure out something was wrong with the accounting at Gunnison prison?  And why didn’t the BLM fire this contractor (rescind the contract) last year

Basically, it was uncovered that this BLM contractor overcharged the government by about $2 million dollars.  Why is the news twisted to make it seem like Utah Correctional Industries just decided not to renew their contract with the BLM because they weren’t making enough profit?

Has the BLM even bothered to review the facility reports and mortality reports from Gunnison?  Or was the BLM only focusing on the money?  More mismanagement by the Bureau of Land Management. More

THE NEW WORLD FOOD ORDER

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Create seeds which are genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and patent them. Then convince farmers about their “safety” but also include the “greater harvest and more profit“ angle, even if some of it is untrue. But here is the rest of the story.

136078972_40b7e8eb82_m1There is an increasing demand for food worldwide, but presently there is a massive agenda by UC Davis, the EU and the UK to partner with biotech corporations in order to monopolize the food supply through unsafe patented seeds while replacing older hybrid and heirloom seeds that have been around for decades. And what happens if
corporations control the food supply with certain seeds that will only produce one plant and the seed from that plant will never produce another seed? The commercial or hobby farmer will either have to repurchase more seeds from those same suppliers again or they could purchase the older reproducing seeds as long as they are available.

But what if the good seeds which are non-GMO’s are banned by governments? Well, it is on the drawing board.

Big Agri, paired with the world ruling governments, are likened to oligarchies such as the European Union, and are already trying to make it illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or trees that has not been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the “EU Plant Variety Agency.” Yes, this is an outrageous agenda and the new law, if passed, basically puts the government in charge of all plants and seeds in Europe, and prevents home gardeners from growing their own plants from non-regulated seeds.” And if growers did break the rules, they will be considered criminals.

UNDER THE RADAR: THE TROUT ERADICATION PROGRAM-SAVE THE FISH

“The forest service spends all that time and money to eradicate trout from 7 lakes to save a frog while there are, to this day, zero frogs in those lakes. Now, that’s real progress. Ching, ching, those are your tax dollars still at work.”

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

fish 1While under the radar, in 2008, a huge trout eradication program began in Eldorado National Forest to save a frog. With the exception of a few people who read a newspaper that actually responded to the plan, there were no public hearings back then for the yellow legged frog. The public comment process was practically null in 2008 and the forest service didn’t make a lot of noise either, less the public be outraged at such an undertaking.
In my recent conversation with Eldorado National Forest fish biologist, Sarah Muskoph, she shared with me that tadpole eating Brook trout in 7 lakes were the reason for an eradication program which had already been completed in 2011 and 2012. Those high mountain lakes affected are located in Desolation Wilderness above the Echo Lake Resort which are Ralston, Tamarack, Cagwin, Margery, Lucille, Le Conte, and Jabu lakes.

To date there is still insufficient evidence that connects frog decline to the eating of tadpoles by trout yet the forest service clings to this assumption. In my discussion with Sarah I asked her if any yellow legged frogs had yet been found in or around those lakes since the eradication and she said, with the exception of a few frogs that had been found in a pond, there were none.  This is consistent with these findings here; More

Vaccines: Are we genetically modifying humans?

“If you intentionally infect a human being with the DNA of a monkey, swine, chicken, or other non-related species DNA, what is the actual result? Are we still human, by genetic definition? Does the vaccine create what is referred to as a mutational hotspot in the human genome? These hotspots, when located and identified, record significant and sometimes ancient changes in the organization and expression of the human genome.

Is this what vaccines are doing? And if they are, is the human, now intentionally infected and altered with the DNA of an unrelated species, fully human; and what about their offspring if they are even able to reproduce?”

snake4_deesThe recent revelations about the CDC coverup of the autism epidemic as it relates to the massive vaccination assault on children came as no surprise to a public that has become increasingly wary of what is being injected into their children and the catastrophic rise in autism and other brain disruptions associated with it.

The campaign to achieve 100% vaccination rates rolls on.  How many children are we willing to continue to sacrifice to this obviously very flawed ideology?

And it rolls on with a vengeance even as sudden infant deaths (SIDS) increases in correlation to vaccination rates. SIDS was virtually unheard of and was so rare before the 1960’s when vaccination was implemented, that data and records were not kept on it. Then, in the 1970’s, CDC was finally forced to give it the name SIDS as sudden infant deaths began occurring at an alarming rate as vaccines were introduced.

We see the same kind of thinking processes and excuses even as the number of autistic children skyrockets and even as the manufacturers and the CDC are forced to admit that numerous vaccines failed.

Autism, now at epidemic levels, is creating a whole generation of permanently brain damaged children. Vaccines are no less a traumatic brain injury than that caused by a physical blow to the head. Vaccines are known to cross the blood-brain barrier and to infect the brain causing what appears to be a chemical shock attack Just because some children survive the injury without perceptible damage does not mean that it should be ok to damage, impair or otherwise cause harm to so many others, including causing death.

“The first major setback for Oz was the ‘Net’s revelations that America’s service men and women were exposed to radiation from depleted uranium (DU) used in the munitions for the two-decades-old Middle East “wars”.

Say what?

They are the world’s so-called “financial stewards”—have been for centuries—and own and control the world’s money through their central banks in the nations where their central banks are located (that print and sell those nations their money with interest) and are responsible for what comes out of congress, the media, and Wall Street. What appears to be worrying these financial Wizards of Oz is the light the ‘Net is shining on them, and the unemployed pitchforkers and scythers beginning to fill streets seeking a “. . . come, let us reason together” moment. Oz’s public position is to “save the planet’s resources” [read: for themselves] and all it implies; which includes humans; even as populations decline in developed countries and are leveling in undeveloped countries.

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058: Doom for America’s Wild horses

RED ALERT
From ISPMB (International Society for the Protection of Mustangs & Burros)

THE NEED TO TAKE A STRONG STAND AGAINST H.R. 5058

On July 10th, 2014, Representative, Chris Stewart (UT-R), introduced a bill to the Committee on Natural Resources which could ultimately spell doom for America’s Wild Horses and Burros. The bill is co-sponsored by Representatives Bob Bishop (UT-R) and Tom McClintock (CA-R).

On July 15th, the bill was referred to the Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation and is titled “Wild Horse Oversight Act.” There are 26 members on this committee of which 14 are Republicans and 12 are Democrats.

To find out if your Representative is on this committee please click here: http://naturalresources.house.gov/subcommittees/subcommittee/?SubcommitteeID=5064

Act now and write your Representative if they are on the Committee and state the following in your own words:

The Wild Horses and Burros Act (PL 92-195) became a federal law to protect America’s wild horses and burros for all Americans and future generations to enjoy. Left to the state’s control in 1971, we would have no wild horses or burros left in our country. The same holds true for today if states take control of management.

Please let us remind you that wild horses and burros can ONLY be removed if they are causing damage to their habitat and that can only be proven through monitoring of their habitat by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This means that setting a permanent AML (appropriate management level), as BLM currently does, is arbitrary and capricious. In other words, it is illegal. More

Autism-Vaccine Cover-up Snowballs as Whistleblower’s Identity is Revealed—LATEST UPDATES

4 Comments

Vaccine-Autism link whistleblower revealed

Rumors are swirling as the world learns of the government’s deception. Here’s what we know for sure.

William W. Thompson, PhD—an epidemiologist at the CDC’s National Center of Birth Defects and Development Disabilities who received his doctorate in biochemical engineering—has been revealed as the CDC whistleblower. Thompson broke a decade of silence over the government’s deliberate concealment of the link between the MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) and a dramatically increased risk of autism, particularly in African American boys.

Thompson is alleging criminal wrongdoing on the part of his supervisors, and has expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data: “It’s the lowest point in checking vaccine 25my career, that I went along with that paper.”

Here is a quick timeline of the scandal:
•In February 2004, a study of the MMR vaccine was published in the journal Pediatrics by three CDC scientists working in the National Immunization Program; one of them was Dr. Thompson. The study, in which vaccine data was gathered on 2,583 children in metropolitan Atlanta born between 1986 and 1993, concluded that there were “no significant associations” between the age at which the vaccine is administered and the incidence of “developmental regression” such as autism. This study has been used for the past decade by the those seeking to say there is no link between autism and vaccines. It should be noted that Pediatrics receives financial support from vaccine makers through advertising and direct donations, according to a CBS News report.
•That same month, Dr. Thompson wrote to Dr. Julie Gerberding (then director of the CDC, now director of Merck’s vaccine division). In this letter he discusses his intention to present, at an Institute of Medicine meeting on vaccines and autism the following week, “several problematic results” that the Atlanta study had produced.

How the EPA separates landowners from their properties

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
On April 7, 2001, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation ignored state and federal law in the name of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and stopped water to more than 200,000 acres and some 1,400 canal-irrigated family farms near Klamath Falls, Oregon, plunging the community toward bankruptcy and devastating families.
Why? Because the bureau said two species of bottom-feeding suckerfish and a Coho salmon, in a reservoir the farmers depended upon might be “affected” if water was released during the current drought.

35600_1thmThe ESA had already been used to cut off water to a group of California farmers, causing their crops to dry up.
In Colorado, the forest service threatened another agricultural operation with a by-pass flow that would have resulted in an 80-percent loss of the dry-year water supply from a key reservoir, with a direct economic loss of between $5 and $17 million.
They also attempted to impose a “by-pass flow” that would have taken some 50 percent of the dry-year water supply provided from a Colorado municipal water storage facility.

In Idaho, a federal permittee was told he would have to bypass water to protect aquatic species or obtain an alternate source of water at a cost of $120,000.
In Arizona, where state law requires water rights be held by the person making the beneficial use of the water, the regional forester had demanded that water rights owned by grazing permittees be transferred to the feds – rights long established under state law for livestock purposes.

Federal agencies—at the direction of the EPA—are using the ESA nationwide to try and override established water rights, state laws, and the McCarran Act.
Under the Water Rights Act of 1952 (McCarran Amendment) it’s illegal for anyone – federal agency or citizen, without exception – to force water bypasses or withhold water along natural flowing streams, rivers, and their tributaries. More

Clear the Bench going after corruption in the legal system full blast

Names judges, crooked attorneys and provides laundry list of misdoings

Clear the Bench Arizona, announces its mission and call to action

Phoenix, August 25, 2014: Clear the Bench Arizona is seeking to make a difference and expose the issues and concerns involving the judicial and state bar systems. Its mission statement is:

“Toward the end that the Arizona judiciary remains impartial, apolitical, and able to dispense justice, we are organized to hold all judges, courts, commissioners, court officers and personnel accountable to the People and Constitutions of Arizona and the United States.”

On October 1, 2014, the organization will begin publishing information on judges that are up for retention and setting its first meeting of the Arizona Judicial Advisory Board, an independent group of people who will take in complaints from the public, investigate and make recommendations to the legislature for possible impeachment. Clear the Bench will also provide information regularly on its website so voters can have another source to determine the retention of judges until the election of judges can be reinstated in all counties in Arizona. The existing Commission has repeatedly ignored valid complaints on judges.In addition to addressing the current corruption in the system by a small but powerful group of individuals, Clear the Bench has two main goals it believes are necessary to achieve future justice in the system-

  • the election of judges in all jurisdictions and,
  • the abolishment of the “non-profit” State Bar of Arizona.

Clear the Bench Arizona is a growing organization that unites people from all over Arizona and from all walks of life, political positions and educational levels. Most of those involved have been victims of the system and want accountability. What members have found is that there is a small group of people controlling the legal system and profiting from their actions. The names of these people and the information are already in the hands of those at the state and national level and we are continuing to provide information as it comes in. Additional information about the statements below can be found on the website or obtained through documents we can provide. Attorneys in Arizona are afraid to represent victims due to the corruption in the Arizona State Bar and with select judges and they have gone so far to disbar attorneys who have tried to come to the clients’ aid after they were victimized.

The message has been clear— cross us and we will destroy you. Clear the Bench Arizona is fighting back!

The Arizona Supreme Court is attempting to deflect scrutiny by creating the ‘move along, nothing to see here’ commissions, offices or committees including the Independent Bar Counsel office. The “Independent Bar Counsel” has already been ignored in order to execute a politically motivated attack on an attorney that represented parties against former State Bar President Edward Novak, a person that appears regularly throughout state bar and court committees including the recent appointment as Chair of the committee that decides who gets admitted to practice law in Arizona. Ed Novak represented Arthur Anderson in the Baptist Foundation litigation.

After getting wind of numerous efforts in the works to disband the State Bar of Arizona, a Task Force was formed to “study” the structure but as usual, the same players are placed on the group, such as Novak, likely guaranteeing their interests will continue to be protected. Betsey Bayless, who led the “criminal defense fund” for Donald Stapley, Jr. while he was a sitting supervisor and she was being paid to head the Maricopa County Integrated Health System and Grant Woods, attorney for Conley Wolfswinkel, are also part of that Task Force as are John Phelps and Justice Rebecca Berch who brought in out-of-state “attorneys” to pursue the former Maricopa County Attorney.

The “Attorney Regulation Advisory Committee” has the very person who “decides” attorney discipline, Judge William O’Neil, as its Vice Chair. William O’Neil has been involved in numerous questionable dealings himself as detailed in the Arizona Republic and refused to remove himself from the disciplinary proceedings against the former Maricopa County Attorney and his assistants including filing false or misleading pleadings about his involvement in related investigations. He has disbarred or suspended numerous attorneys including targeting attorneys based on his religious beliefs except has spared a few represented by insiders including Novak, putting his friends on panels without disclosing their relationship.

Other information of note that Clear the Bench is actively pursuing at all levels includes: More

Mark Dankof: Why We’re Finished

Mark Dankof’s America

“The Old American Republic is dead. The American Empire wants to destroy all of us who believe in Republic, not in Empire. I see no reason to believe the American public has the insight and the guts to stand up to this onslaught. We Are Truly Finished.”

I have been receiving a lot of mail from folks asking why I’ve taken a mild leave of absence from broadcasting and writing op-ed pieces for The Ugly Truth. I will appear from time to time, but on a more limited basis, both with The Ugly Truth and Press TV. I’ve been reassessing what good I’m actually doing, given the seemingly inexorable and disastrous direction the American Empire has embarked upon, and what seems like the absolute passivity and indifference of the American public to their own fate in all of this, not to mention the world. In more recent times, I’ve been working on theological articles while preparing to resume my thesis for my last degree along with some theological German study. I’m also job hunting to supplement my income as I assess the future. The bottom line is this: The title of this piece tells you what I’ve concluded about the country and the American people. It isn’t a happy endgame. What appears below are my latest thoughts at the present time.]

—————————————————————

dankofinwashingtondc2011As he was preparing to leave office in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that “America must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military-industrial complex.” Borrowing the title from the Frank Capra Defense Department propaganda films of World War II, documentary film maker Eugene Jarecki chronicled the Eisenhower warning in Why We Fight, a production that would win the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.

I vaguely remember Eisenhower. What I didn’t know as a little boy in the summer of 1960 when my family piled into my Dad’s new white Plymouth Station Wagon to depart Alexandria, Virginia for McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento, was the fact that Dad was working for the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC), the intelligence organization created by Eisenhower to work with the CIA and the AEC in monitoring Soviet nuclear tests, explosions, and missile sites around the world. I did not know that my father was acquainted with Eisenhower, Curtis LeMay, Paul Tibbets of the Enola Gay, and many other storied names of the Second World War and the Cold War that followed. I would learn a number of things about Dad in the decades that followed. There are many other things I never learned, even as he was losing both coherence and consciousness in the final days of his life in San Antonio in May of 2009. Allen Dulles was correct. There are some things that remain secret “from inception to eternity.”

In 1961, as a denizen of kindergarten at the Arthur S. Dudley Elementary School on an American Air Force reservation in Sacramento, I also had no idea that my father would also become acquainted with President Kennedy. All I knew was that Kennedy was the most handsome and dynamic man I’d ever seen on TV, with the most beautiful wife to match. With Kennedy in office, watching Arnold Palmer on TV winning the British Open, making many trips to San Francisco’s Candlestick Park to see Willie Mays in his prime, and trekking to old Kezar Stadium to watch the football 49ers, my idyllic childhood on the West Coast was wedded to an America filled with hope, youth, and limitless future. Mythology and visual images seemed to correspond with reality. The realities of what Seymour Hersh would reveal in his 1996 chronicle of the Kennedy years entitled “The Dark Side of Camelot,” did not correspond to my universe as a kid in the America of the early 1960s.

Who is the contractor for BLM’s emergency short term holding facility (where 75 wild horses died)?

Mares look at the public on a BLM tour of Long Term Holding pastures in Kansas. (photo by Carol Walker)

75 wild mares died in a very short amount of time at BLM’s emergency short term holding facility in Scott City, Kansas.

The BLM awarded the contract for an emergency short term holding facility to Phil Jennings, who has the contract for the BLM’s Pauls Valley facility in Oklahoma.  Jennings has had contracts with BLM since 2005 for Pauls Valley, and the obligation amounts seemed to be mostly in about the $100,000 to $300,000 range.

The BLM Scott City, KS emergency short term holding facility contract was signed 6/4/2014, and the obligation amount is $2,030,000. Yep, that’s a jump to over $2 million dollars.

But Jennings is in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma.  That’s about a 400 mile drive to Scott City, Kansas.  It seems Jennings may have LEASED the feedlot run by Beef Belt, LLC in Scott City, KS.  So, in essence, BLM’s contractor hired a subcontractor.

(Does that seem to make Jennings a very well paid middleman?)

If a contractor leases a feedlot from what is in essence a subcontractor, then the subcontractor has no direct contract with instructions and obligations to the BLM, does it?  Did any BLM personnel give written instructions and obligations to Beef Belt, LLC, which was formed in 10/1/13 (just 9 months prior to getting this windfall of business)?  Or.was it only after 70 horses died, that the BLM finally seemed to get concerned or involved, and give instructions about the feed?
