National Animal Identification System: Let’s start with the horses!

unclesamwantyouAfter the massive backlash over the attempts to establish national, government owned herds of all kinds of livestock, which began in 2008, and raged on for several years, the USDA finally admitted defeat and backed off.  At least publicly.  Behind the scenes the efforts continued to find that one thing that would give them a foothold in establishing the National Animal Identification System. (NAIS )  Bingo!  We got your handy dandy horses that can be used to get the ball rolling!

I have waited for someone to come out and say that “only  the wild ones” will be tracked and tagged, and sure enough someone did.  The problem with this is that the Bureau of Land Management, the agency charged with caring for, managing and protecting the wild herds, has been responsible for the slaughter of  most of them.  Very few of our wild horses, and even burros are left. Yet to hear the BLM tell it, there are untold hundreds of thousands of them on the herd management areas (HMA), and they are throwing litters of foals every year!  That’s if you take the fabricated “scientific evidence” to heart and never ask why few of these animals can be located and when you can locate them they are on the back of a truck headed for slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada.

Clearly this effort to tag and track equines is a case of taking the path of least resistance.  Especially when the BLM has been so successful in convincing ranchers that if they just get on the band wagon demanding the slaughter of the wild horses…why…….there would be just that much more land available for welfare grazing permits!  With the cattlemen and the beef producers soundly behind the NAIS for horses, there should be little resistance from cattle producers, or at least not what it was when they were trying to steal their herds a few years back.

A word of caution:  IF USDA is successful in forcing tracking on equines, it will be small potatoes to establish NAIS for ALL livestock.  After all, equines are not even considered a food source in the US.  But those cattle are as are other livestock herds.

This will be like watching someone shooting themselves in the foot, over, and over, and over…………

Graphic: Press TV

I’m getting too old for all of this.  I didn’t serve my country to see it handed over to a country that will turn on us at the drop of a hat if they think we have what they might want.

I can’t even enjoy my morning coffee with my friends at the local café because half of them are quoting the bible and claiming God will punish us if we don’t support Israel, the other half are screaming bloody murder (literally) over the slaughter of the Palestinians while we watch.  I am giving up on religion because I think everyone involved in it is demonstrating publicly that they are mentally incompetent.  They have been brainwashed since childhood into believing the most ridiculous of stories based on magic, mysticism, invisible beings, and the hope that if they just say the right things, believe in things that common sense tells them cannot possibly be true, somehow they will gain entry into an invisible utopia and get to meet their lifelong invisible “friend”.  I was one of them.  I know what I speak.  In today’s world, this magical thinking has allowed many of these uber-religious people to become enthralled at the idea of slaughtering the Palestinians.

Ask yourself what kind of “Christian” you are that this would be what your “God” would want?

After all, weren’t the Jewish people picked on throughout history?  Didn’t they suffer through the Holocaust?  Yes, they were and they did.  But apparently being given a parcel of land that belonged historically to someone else, was not enough.  Since that gift was bestowed on them, they have launched more than 300 attacks against neighboring countries.  They have antagonized, threatened, attacked, harassed, bombed every country around them, and generally caused upheaval in the region.  But its all good: they are God’s chosen people.  Really…..

While the US government tried to drum up support for attacking Syria for “human rights” violations, and subsequently tried to find a way to insert our military into the Ukraine uprising, Israel continued its genocide of the Palestinians.  And our government and numerous so-called “Christian” churches have cheered them on.  From what the boys at the café told me, their God loves nothing more than blood and lots of it.

I have to ask the question:  What God is it that you believe in that would condone, desire or enjoy the massacre of an entire population in order to be satisfied?

These are my friends, some I served with in the military.  While some of them may suffer from ptsd, I think I must be suffering from ptrd……….post traumatic religious disorder.  Enough of this foolishness. Enough with the magical thinking.  I think I need to find a new invisible friend, one who doesn’t play favorites and one who doesn’t relish the idea of bloody conflagrations.

As a country we have attacked and destroyed, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya in just the past decade.  While we claim love of God and country, we assist, encourage, and help fund the complete destruction of the Palestinians at the hands of the Israeli’s.  From the pulpits of mega churches and even small community churches we are told that the Jewish people are God’s chosen people.  Even if this were true, and at this point in time I do have my doubts, the problem appears to be that no one said what God might have chosen them for.

Meanwhile, our government in collusion with Israel, continues to paint Hamas, as a terrorist organization.  This is kind of like pointing out the speck in your neighbor’s eye, while ignoring the timber in your own.  Is the Israeli Mossad not equally as terroristic if not more so?  Why have we not labeled them as a terrorist group?  Why is no one prosecuted for funding a known terrorist organization known as the Mossad?

Oh! I forgot myself there for a minute.  Israel is our friend.  The Israeli’s are God’s favorites.  When the Israeli’s commit genocide, murder, and attack others its all okay.

Breaking-News2As is so typical of the reporting in Connecticut, the Ct.Post.com uses the Sandy Hook shooting as an excuse to attack the gun lobby and cheerlead for increased mental health services in the state. The problem with this self-serving reporting is that there is absolutely no proof that Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza, lacked good mental health services.

In fact, according to the records that have been made available, Lanza received abundant mental health care throughout his life. The problem for the Ct.Post.com, and other Connecticut “news” organizations, is that it hasn’t read the investigation of the shooting incident. More

Dept. of Interior Whistleblower: Records Were Altered

1 Comment

“A whistleblower complained that the bureau in Sacramento erased records within an Interior Department database and altered spreadsheets in an effort to hide mismanagement of collections under the agency’s control…”

Thank you to whistleblower Patrick Williams: “They more or less wanted to sweep it under the rug,” Williams said in an interview. “They were telling me to change things they didn’t want to see in the record and not to record information that tribal members might want to see as part of a repatriation request.”

A Department of Interior agency is being investigated for breaking the law. We need to wait to find out the results of the investigation, but it is of concern that databases and spreadsheets could be, and may have been, altered within the Department of Interior. Sally Jewell, what assurances do American taxpayers have that this isn’t a widespread practice? What steps can you take to make sure this doesn’t happen?

Agency accused of violating law on remains, relics

By Susan Montoya Bryan the Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE, — An independent federal agency is calling for an investigation into allegations that U.S. officials ignored a law requiring them to catalog, preserve and ultimately return human remains and relics to American Indian tribes.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel has directed the Interior Department to investigate whether U.S. Bureau of Reclamation officials have violated the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act while managing collections of remains and artifacts amassed during the construction and management of dams and waterways throughout California and parts of Nevada and Oregon.

A whistleblower complained that the bureau in Sacramento erased records within an Interior Department database and altered spreadsheets in an effort to hide mismanagement of collections under the agency’s control, resulting in hundreds of remains and artifacts being lost, boxed up for storage or loaned to museums and universities without the ability to track them.

The watchdog group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility told The Associated Press on Wednesday that it hopes the inquiry will be expanded to cover more agencies and more parts of the West.

“These are relics that do not belong to the American government,” said Jeff Ruch, the group’s executive director. “The point of the law is they belong to the tribes from which they came. If these were your ancestors’ remains and they were boxed up someplace where you couldn’t get any information about them, you’d be pretty angry.”

A spokesman with the Bureau of Reclamation’s Mid-Pacific office could not immediately comment, saying he was unaware of the whistleblower’s case and the call for an investigation.

The federal government’s handling of Native American remains and artifacts has been criticized for years. Following a critical report by the Government Accountability Office in 2010, the Interior Department asked for more money and at least eight years to bolster compliance with the law.

But progress has been slow and frustrating, and communication with tribes is still lacking, said D. Bambi Kraus, a spokeswoman for the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers. “It’s encouraging that this is being investigated,” she said.

A filing with the Office of Special Counsel shows Patrick Williams, who used to work as a museum specialist in archaeology in the bureau’s Mid-Pacific office, raised concerns with his supervisors that the agency was not complying with the law’s requirements once it stopped keeping detailed records of remains and relics. He also said the office was not filling out the proper paperwork when loaning out artifacts, essentially making the items untraceable.

The office routinely failed to notify tribes of long-stored and newly uncovered remains and funerary objects, Williams said. Some of the collections date back to the 1970s, when the federal government was building the New Melones dam and reservoir in California.

“They more or less wanted to sweep it under the rug,” Williams said in an interview. “They were telling me to change things they didn’t want to see in the record and not to record information that tribal members might want to see as part of a repatriation request.”

Williams said his supervisors told him creating detailed files of the remains and artifacts to comply with the law was “too complicated and required too much time and effort.” He said his concerns resulted in hostility and threats of termination.

“I’m not about to break the law for anybody, and they wanted me to go along with it,” Williams said. “I would rather step out, and that’s what I did.”

A combination of budget cuts and the low priority assigned by bureau managers resulted in responsibilities under the law falling by the wayside, Williams said.

While it’s unclear how widespread the compliance problem is, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility said it wouldn’t be surprised if similar things were happening elsewhere given that budget shortfalls and other priorities are challenges found throughout the agency.

“This is a statutory duty they feel they can ignore,” Ruch said. “The most important part is tribes aren’t being consulted, so there’s nothing to prevent this from going on for years and years.”

The Office of Special Counsel has given the Interior Department 60 days to investigate the allegations and report back.

 

 

The New Israeli-Palestinian War

__________________________________________________________________________

“Other critics have speculated that the kidnappings were a false flag set-up by Israel on their own countrymen in order to weaken and de-ligitimize the new Palestinian unity government between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, which is heavily opposed by Netanyahu. “

____________________________________________________________________________
Israel has authorized calling 40,000 reserve troops for active ground duty as the government considers a ground invasion of Gaza.

Israel has been bombing Gaza since June 29th in heavy airstrikes, in response to rockets shot across the border by Hamas.  Israel is vowing to stamp out rocket attacks with more bombs and has ruled out a cease-fire at this time.

Here is a synopsis of how this current mess got started:

Three Israeli teenage boys were reported kidnapped on June 12, 2014 in the West Bank.  Their bodies were discovered on June 30th. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu immediately blamed Hamas, even though the incident occurred near the West Bank which is governed by the Palestinian Authority (PA), not Hamas.  Hamas operates in Gaza.

Netanyahu said that Hamas would pay.  Hamas denied the charges of kidnapping the boys.  Israel has failed to present specific evidence against Hamas.

There was no strategic benefit for Hamas to kill the three Israeli boys.

Israel censored the media from reporting on a phone call from the boys the night that they went missing.

Israeli police received a phone call from 16-year-old Gilad Shaar, one of the kidnapped boys, on June 12th.  The call was recorded and gunshots could be heard in the background after the abductor told them to put their heads down. The police claim that they thought the call was a prank. 

Why would Israel ban the media from reporting on the phone call that indicated the boys were dead?

Critics say that Israel used the opportunity over the next 18 days before the bodies were discovered to arrest more than 400 Palestinians and to conduct aggressive searches on 1300 sites, including homes in the West Bank. Five Palestinians were reported to have been killed during the search operation.

Minnesota Schools: Common Core and Mental Health

“Each bill appears to be based on the self-sustaining quota systems used by Child Protective Services and Adult Protective Services estimating the number of individuals they anticipate herding through the system in order to fulfill estimated quarterly quotas tied directly to continued funding, grants and subsidies.”

_____________________________________________________________________________

The active attack on public education through the Common Core curriculum has now taken one giant step forward as Minnesota and other states passed aggressive mental health laws directed at our children. Several additional public schools in the state will now have [mental health] clinics on site as the programs become established; clinics that will be used to aggressively label the greatest number of children possible as having one or more mental disorders. Tied to these bills are massive government subsidies and other targeted funding.

28681_1thIn other words, our children will be traded for dollars regardless of the lifelong damage that will be the result from the assessment of fictional mental disorders; an assessment which will follow them for the rest of their lives whether real or just imagined by a mental health provider. Many will become dependent on the highly addictive psychotropic drugs known as neuroleptics and will suffer from a myriad of adverse side affects.

Project AWARE :Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education

This federal level project would have been more aptly titled “schools collecting allocated money for kids”, or the SCAMkids project.

“Dr. Karen Effrem, president of the national watchdog group, Education Liberty Watch, is sounding an alarm about Common Core, the federal education standards that almost all states are adopting by accepting federal “Race to the Top” funding. Under Common Core, Effrem said, students’ personal information increasingly is being collected, measured and assessed while the standards shift the focus away from academics and toward psychological training and testing of personal attitudes and behaviors. “

Minnesota alone has allocated 45 million to jump-start the psychological training of kids:

Under five-year grant contracts with the department, 36 mental health organizations will provide school-linked mental health services to approximately 35,000 students in more than 800 schools across 257 school districts and 82 counties by 2018. More than half of those students will receive mental health services for the first time.

Why does that statement make me cringe? Maybe its the unfettered access to more than 35,000 students and the ensuing data mining that will also be relentlessly conducted, and stored in permanent lifetime files for easy access by insurance companies, federal and state agencies and eventual employers.

Every year, millions of abused and abandoned animals are gassed to death, or chemically killed.  As usual, instead of going after the CAUSE of these claimed overpopulated animals, we instead kill off large numbers of them.  We react instead of being pro-active.

While it is true that pet owners need to have their pets spayed and nuetered, this process is so cost prohibitive in many cases that owners simply cannot afford to have it done.

The average  cost of spaying and nuetering across the country is 85.00 to 150 dollars.  The cost of euthanizing these same animals is as much or more.  Wouldn’t it make better economic sense to offer low cost spay and nueter, and avoid the costly euthanizing?

Every year organizations claiming to exist to protect animals from abuse, neglect and possbile euthansia, collect millions upon millions of dollars in donations.  Instead of funding kill shelters, would we not be better served to fund free or reduced cost spay and nueter clinics? This would reduce unwanted populations of animals that eventually are held in shelters waiting to die. I know the animals would appreciate it.

Join us as we discuss our unsavory acceptance gas chambers and other methods of killing off unwanted animals.

In psychology our belief system shapes our perceptions of the world around us, in fact becoming our very sense of reality. Our primary caregivers, most often our parents, project their view of us and their world onto us and we in turn internalize their views as our own sense of developing self and world view. In this last century the influence of mass media has also come to increasingly shape our world and self-concept. As adolescents and young adults we often change and modify our perceptions of the world based on our own interpersonal experience particularly with peers and movement to finding resonance with a more authentic, individuated self in relation to our surrounding world. But with time and more adult experience often comes an existential dilemma and/or crisis if and when we encounter growing dissonance between what we thought we…

According to the NY Times, all 470 senior executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) were rated as “fully successful” or better over the past 4 years and 80% of them received bonuses on top of their six-figure incomes in 2013. Yes, they are fully successful at Poor Management which caused the deaths of as many as 1000 veterans who did not receive proper medical care. The schedulers at the VA were “successfully” directed to keep secret waiting lists to delay medical care for sick and injured vets so that management could meet quotas which qualified them for bonuses.
___________________________________________________________

The VA paid out $2.7 million in taxpayer funds for senior executive bonuses last year. This was True Success…for VA Senior Executives. Bravo.

Gina Farrisee, the Assistant Secretary for Human Resources at the VA argued that the bonus awards were necessary to compete in tough labor markets for skilled personnel.

I find her defense of executive bonuses hard to believe as it is an employers’ market with a plethora of talented people looking for work. The Weekly Standard reports that the average federal employee made $126,141 in pay and benefits in 2012, more than double the private sector average. More “success” for Federal Employees..at the expense of the Taxpayer.

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) says that the VA doctors have an easy job compared to their private sector counterparts. He says that the VA doctors see about 1200 patients per year, compared to private sector doctors who attend to 2300 patents per year. In Phoenix, private sector doctors do almost twice as much work while earning about half of what the VA doctors make, which is in excess of $300,000. Salary “success” for Federal Doctors.

This list names the employees of the scandal-plagued Phoenix VA facility and reveals their salaries, in a first step toward transparency:

As a result of the failed wars in the Middle East, VA expenditures have doubled over the past 12 years. The VA spent $61 billion in 2001, compared to funding in 2012 that rose to a whopping $125 billion. “Success” for the taxpayers who are bankrolling the corrupt system.

Meanwhile, the Senate is proposing throwing money at the VA problem that could cost taxpayers an extra $50 billion per year, instead of rooting out the corruption and fixing the system.

Tom Coburn says money is not the solution as the VA is expected to have $5.9 billion in unspent funds at the end of the year. He recommends that Congress provide better oversight of the VA, transparency, accountability and the firing of bad employees.

Senator Coburn’s assessment is right on target, but doesn’t go far enough. Any VA employe who committed a serious crime, especially management, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Some “success” should be punished, and renamed criminal fraud and waste.

The objective of Congress should be to focus on reducing VA costs by eliminating war.

The beneficiaries of war are the elites who control the Military Industrial Complex. The elites and bureaucracies like the VA are enjoying the “success” of the wars in the Middle East that are profitable only to them.

The wars have brought only death, destruction and complete misery to American soldiers and to the countries that were “liberated”. American vets are committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day! US military operations are bankrupting America. Hundreds of thousands of innocents in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya have been killed as a result of US intervention. This is the real cost of war.

Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime, Cover-Up and Coercion within the VA

Leave a comment

TOM COBURN, US SENATOR FROM OKLAHOMA 

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator and doctor Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), today released his new oversight report “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.”  The report is based on a year-long investigation of VA hospitals around the nation that chronicled the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays.  The report also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked.

“This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined.  The scope of the VA’s incompetence – and Congress’ indifferent oversight – is breathtaking and disturbing.  This investigation found the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling.  Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VA’s misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice.  As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources.  But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years,” Dr. Coburn said.

“The Administration and Congress have failed to ensure our nation is living up to the promises we have made to our veterans,” Dr. Coburn added.  “As a physician who has personally cared for hundreds of Oklahoma veterans, this is intolerable.  As a senator, I’m determined to address the structural challenges of the Department of Veterans Affairs so we can end this national disgrace and improve quality and access to health care for our veterans.  But make no mistake.  Whatever bill Congress passes cannot ignore the findings of this report.  While it is good that Congress feels a sense of urgency we are at this point because Congress has ignored or glossed over too many similar warnings in the past.  Our sense of urgency should come from the scope of the problem, not our proximity to an election.”

Key findings in the report include: More

Animal shelters are over capacity with abandoned and abused animals, many simply dumped in the street and abandoned, others rescued from horrendous neglect and abuse at the hands of their owners.  What kind of person does this to a vulnerable animal?

There are numerous groups and organizations devoted to protecting and saving these tortured creatures.  We will be discussing these groups, including online petitions and other activities aimed at rescue, protection and adoption services.
