Reading the article (below) that was in the Wyoming news, you might wonder how many “pastures” contain “wild horses” that have had “little, if any, contact with humans?”  It could very well be that only “unbroken” horses are used in these Wild Horse Races.  (But, should any horse be treated in the way they’re treated in Wild Horse Races?)

You might wonder if any of our wild horses, or their offspring, might in some instances have ever been used in any rodeo Wild Horse Races.  After the BLM sells wild horses in bulk sales (many horses, often by the truckload), it seems they don’t know where the horses go.  Some wild horse mares may have even been used to breed bucking stock.

It seems the BLM hasn’t kept track of the foals born to wild horses and burros.  Remember the “discrepancy” between Palomino Valley’s facility reports and rendering records for the same time period?  And BLM’s response was “We welcome the public’s interest in this matter and acknowledge that the horse mortality numbers being reported at BLM facilities are lower than the numbers invoiced by BLM-contracted rendering facilities that dispose of horse remains.  The discrepancy results from the reporting procedures currently used by the Bureau…”

So, in other words, there has been a lack of, or extremely lax , reporting procedures and accountability by BLM of the wild horse & burro foals.

Anyhow, back to the sources of “wild horses” used in Wild Horse Races.  Why would someone have “little, if any” contact with a horse in their care on their property?  Wouldn’t they have to drive out to feed the horse in the winter?  Wouldn’t a horse need a farrier?  Wouldn’t horses need vaccinations?  (Horses are now being vaccinated for West Nile Virus in Utah.)

There are Wild Horse Races in Montana.  There are Wild Horse Races in Arizona.

There are Wild Horse Races in Oklahoma.  Even Pioneer Woman wrote about these races).  And took some pictures, which were on her blog.  Apparently, her husband, Ladd Drummond, participated in a Wild Horse Race and got kicked.  Ouch.  (Ladd Drummond has a contract for a BLM long term holding facility.)

There are Wild Horse Races in Oregon.  Horses have died at wild horse races.

It seems there is even a Professional Wild Horse Racers Association (PWHRA).  There are even Wild Colt Races for kids 11 and younger to participate in.   Jason Smith is President of PWHRA.  Smith is also president of the National Tribal Horse Coalition, and has been lobbying for horse slaughter.

And, there are Wild Horse Races in Wyoming.  Before you read the article below, click HERE to see a video by SHARK of a Wild Horse Race in Cheyenne, WY.

We don’t know if these “wild horses” could in any instances be offspring of American wild horses, or if they are just “unbroken” horses, but this rodeo “sport” appears to be dangerous to the safety of any horses.

Behold! An Ebola Boogeyman on a Pale Horse!

Media parrots are churning out manufactured lies and fear-mongering messages about “the deadly Ebola virus”; hawking this drivel like a bunch of carney midway barkers; their message being: “. . . be afraid! . . . be very afraid! . . . but don’t lose hope. We have an antidote and vaccine on the way!”

1267436152This kind of media propaganda and disinformation is deliberately embedded in the public’s mind; the ultimate aphrodisiac in a game called The Big Scare played by the Wizards of Oz (aka the boys behind the curtain) to “thin” populations while simultaneously making billions off their demise.

The so-called current “Ebola Pandemic” (like the “Swine Flu” hoax) is funded by go-fers for bankers headquartered in The City in the middle of London; the same people who finance and control the world’s “vaccine” manufacturing industry, media, money, and governments with their 150 central banks (the Fed in the U.S.)

Did you know Ebola didn’t exist in the 18th and 19th centuries and didn’t appear in the 20th until 1976 in Sudan and Zaire; then again in 1989 from infected monkeys—so the public was told—imported into Reston, Virginia, from Mindanao in the Philippines; then finally in Cote d’Ivoire in 1994?

And here that wascal is again!

Did I mention they’ve never figured out where Ebola came from? Where/what its natural reservoir was/is? Is it a sub-zero-and-fire proof space traveler carried here on a fist-sized meteorite that crashed in Africa? You know, like AIDS that “ . . .just appeared in Africa one day?” Near a volcano, they said. From monkeys, the pre-Internet public was told.

The Dark Continent seems to attract diseases that cry out for antidotal drugs.

Oz’s end-game is martial law using the current “Ebola outbreak” that isn’t “. . . to stop a dangerous pandemic capable of destroying the planet!”

Their next step would be an attempt to force humanity to take the “Ebola Jab.” More

NEW YORK OATH KEEPERS CLAIM ACCUSATIONS BY STATE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY TO BE FALSE

____________________________________________________

The New York State Chapter of Oath Keepers (NYOK) has written a letter of demand to the New York State Intelligence Center (NYSIC).The New York Oath Keepers officers are demanding a public correction of that report which would exclude the use of their name in conjunction with “extremists” who may be considered “threats to law enforcement” and may be considered “anti-government”.

According to the Oath keepers web site on June 12, 2014, the New York State Intelligence Center (NYSIC), which is managed by the New York State Police, issued New York State Counter Terrorism Bulletin: CTM 14-07: Recent Spike in Violence Targeting Law Enforcement.
In that bulletin, the NYSIC referred to three recent attacks on Law Enforcement Officers in the month of June, one in Canada and two in the United States. The bulletin stated:

“Based upon reporting it appears all the suspects in these incidents were motivated by elements of a far right anti-government ideology with a particular fixation on law enforcement.”

Here is a summary of the three incidents that the NYSIC used to justify their unwarranted connection to the New York Oath Keepers and other constitutional Liberty groups in New York State. (see full details of these (3) allegations below) [1]

NO RATIONAL CONNECTION

So, what exactly caused those who authored the NYSIC bulletin to make the determination that we are a far-right extremist organization, posing a threat to police, when the New York Oath Keepers had absolutely nothing to do with the aforementioned incidents?

Here is a summary of the three incidents that the NYSIC used to justify their unwarranted connection to the New York Oath Keepers and other constitutional Liberty groups in New York State.
 
Incident #1: On June 4, 2014, Justin Bourque, a 24-year-old male in New Brunswick, Canada, with no criminal record, shot and killed three Royal Canadian Mounted Police Officers and was later captured. The report states: “…he struggled to hold a job, turned to drugs, and became increasingly obsessed with guns (particularly the ongoing U.S. gun debate which has spilled over to a lesser degree to Canada) and abuses by police.”
 
In reviewing Incident #1, where, exactly, is the connection to the New York Oath Keepers and other NY Liberty groups?

 

Incident #2: On June 6, 2014, Dennis Marx, a 48-year-old male in Forsyth County, Georgia, was shot and killed by Deputies trying to enter the county courthouse with a so-called “assault” rifle, body armor, an assortment of grenades, ammunition, food, water and flexible handcuffs. The NYSIC bulletin states: “Marx was scheduled to appear before a judge at the courthouse that morning on eleven felony drug and weapons charges. As to motive, Marx had long running issues with law enforcement and was a self-identified sovereign citizen.”
Again, in reviewing Incident #2, where, exactly, is the connection to the New York Oath Keepers and other NY Liberty group?

BLM ships 1,770 wild horses out of Teterville Long Term Holding Pasture in Kansas (without notifying the public)

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

Over the course of several weeks, with no transparency (unless a member of the public happened to call to directly ask), the BLM recently shipped about 1,770 wild horses, who were supposedly “living out their lives” on the Teterville Long Term Holding Pasture in Kansas, to other long term holding pastures and to a TEMPORARY SHORT TERM HOLDING FACILITY, in feedlot like conditions.

Approximately 1,400 mare were shipped to the Temporary Short Term Holding Facility in Scott City, Kansas.

Approximately 100 geldings were shipped to Cassoday Long Term Holding in Kansas.

Approximately 100 geldings were sent to Hulah Long Term Holding in Oklahoma.

Approximately 35 geldings were shipped to Catoosa Long Term Holding in Oklahoma.

Approximately 100 geldings were shipped to Bartlesville Long Term Holding in Oklahoma.

Approximately 35 geldings were shipped to Whitehorse Long Term Holding in Oklahoma.

The so called “notification” that the BLM gave the public, (if you happened to be browsing the From the Public page of their website, was this:

Question: Does the BLM ever move animals from a long-term pasture to another holding facility? If so, why? (July 2014)

Answer: Yes, BLM moves animals from long-term pastures to other facilities if the long-term pasture can no longer accommodate the animals. Examples of when this would occur include:  
1.  If a contractor sells the ranch and the new owner does not want to manage for wild horses.
2. If a contractor has lands recovering from drought and wants to remove grazing animals or decrease their numbers to aid in drought recovery.
3. If market conditions change in the livestock sector such that the contractor identifies a more lucrative use for the land.
 
Depending on the capacity of the facility needing to relocate animals, the number of animals being relocated can range from a few hundred to a few thousand head.
 
The majority of animals that have not been adopted are held on long-term pastures.  Long-term pastures provide a free-roaming environment for the animals and it costs less for the taxpayer to house animals on long-term pastures than at short-term holding facilities.  With long-term and short-term facilities nearly filled to capacity, the BLM is currently seeking new short-term and long-term holding facilities.”
Okie dokie.  I have some comments about this:
 1) The BLM didn’t even bother to mention (notify the public) that they shipped 1,770 wild horses out of the Teterville Long Term Holding Pasture in the vague “answer” to their own generic question.
2)  The BLM, in charge of “managing” (and planning for the “care” of) the wild horses for about 42 years, didn’t have the foresight that the conditions they listed above might happen, and have another Long Term Holding Pasture on a waiting list.
3)  The public would like a tour of the TEMPORARY SHORT TERM HOLDING FACILITY in Scott City, Kansas.  We are tired of the BLM moving our wild horses onto private property, and out of sight.  The BLM needs to be accountable to the public.
4) Per BLM’s Debbie Collins, the “notification” of the horses being shipped from Teterville would be in the form of showing the numbers of additional horses at certain LTH facilities and the Temporary Short Term Holding Facility in Kansas on the BLM’s next “Off The Range” Facility Report.  Of course, this report isn’t easy to find on the BLM’s Wild Horse & Burro website.  And that really doesn’t adequately inform the public that wild horses were shipped out of Teterville Long Term Holding, does it?  Are we on a scavenger hunt for tidbits of information?
5)  The BLM has issued bids for new Long Term Holding Pastures, but it could take up to a year.  Meanwhile, 1,400 mares may have to go through a harsh winter in western Kansas in feedlot like corrals.
6)  Debbie Collins seemed not to know, or did not want to tell me, the name of the contractor/ranch/facility for the Temporary Short Term Holding facility in Scott City.  A member of the public shouldn’t have to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for something like this.  BLM employees, and the Wild Horse & Burro Program, are paid with public tax dollars and should answer questions.  No wonder the BLM’s FOIA office is swamped.   (Don’t worry, we’ll find out.)
7)  The BLM continues to blatantly lack transparency.

Israel’s Ongoing Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing of Gaza

Israel Invades: Takes lives, Destroys Sustaining Infrastructure

Recently Israel shelled a beach near two of Gaza City’s hotels. Twelve years ago, I dined with Gaza friends in one of those hotels overlooking that same beach. Israel’s shelling killed four Philistine boys instantly, four boys from the same family. Several others were wounded, and the incident was witnessed by two reporters who were staying in one of the hotels. The people killed and injured were guilty of nothing more than having an hour of fun on a hot day on that beach. Israel then publicly pronounced its act as “a tragedy.” This is Israel’s standard way to dismiss its most inhumane abuses of life, then it repeats the acts. The very next day, Israel invaded with tanks through Erez Gate into Gaza. This time there is every reason to believe that Israel’s agenda is to cause death by deprivation of the estimate 1.5 million Gaza gulag inmates, except those who can and will leave. This story is too painful to write, and I pray it will be proved to be wrong. But I am finding others who fear Israel has already started genocide and ethnic cleansing of Gaza.

Vote for Bill Sheidler: Washington State District 26

Leave a comment

Candidate for State Representative District 26 Position #1, Washington
August 5, 2014 Washington Non-Partisan State Primary
Age: 60
Party: Washington State Republican Party
Phone: (360) 769-8531
Address: 1515 Lidstrom Pl

Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I understand the definition of “servant”, the definition of “public”, the meaning of “governments’ just powers”. And I understand the meaning of “to protect and maintain individual rights.” I also know people are increasingly angry with our currently employed “public servants” who have no idea their sole purpose is “to protect and maintain individual rights.” And I have learned that as you peel back the layers of our corrupt government, at the core of the rotten onion you find lawyers. I believe very strongly that once the “legal profession” is “regulated” by citizens and not by other lawyers, the ‘government enterprise’ will begin to heal itself – RAPIDLY!I also believe that lawyers should not be allowed to run for legislative office. All lawyers belong to a state agency, the WA State Bar, and are regulated by the WA Supreme Court. To allow lawyers to also serve in the WA State Legislature presents a “separation of powers” issue and needs to be resolved by expelling lawyers from the legislature.

The legal profession ranks so low with people when asked about “honest/ethics in professions” to allow them to also infiltrate our legislative branch is simply foolhardy. See Gallup Poll
