Whistleblowers! Is presented in co-ordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Annual Summit in Washington D.C.

Hosted by Marti Oakley

Our Guest: Lawrence Lucas

Mr. Lucas was the former President of the USDA Coalition of Minority Employees, beginning in 1994.  His career as a government employee began as a political appointee during the Carter Administration. He retired after 32 years of service.

Lawrence returns to discuss a recent conversation with a newly elected congressman who was unaware of the pervasive and systematic discriminatory practices within the USDA.  From the unfair treatment of Black and other minority farmers, to the sexual harassment and intimidation that has ocurred over decades against the women in the Forestry service, Lawrence covers it all.

The USDA, referred to as “The Last Plantation”, refuses to treat women, Hispanic, native Americans and Black farmers with the same degree of equal access that is provided to farmers not in these groups.  Funding withheld or denied and more than 14,000 formal complaints to the EEOC civil rights division of USDA have gone unanswered.  By law the USDA has 60 days to respond and yet many of these complaints were filed many years ago.

Tune in to hear what we might expect not only from congress, but what might be coming down the pike from the new administration.

Measles Mortality Rates and How the Medical Establishment Deceives Us Concerning the Efficacy (and Safety) of Vaccines

1 Comment

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

 

“During the last 10 years, there has been one death from measles, but that patient was an adult woman who was on immunosuppressive medications and had other serious health problems. (But between) 2000 and 2017, there were 156 deaths related to the MMR vaccine.” David Brownstein, MD – Holistic Family Practitioner

 

“Up to 90% of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860-1965 because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diphtheria, and measles occurred before the introduction of immunisations and antibiotics.” – Archie Kalokerinos, MD

“According to the records of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious diseases in the U.S.A. were diphtheria, pertussis, scarlet fever, and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95% before the implementation of mass vaccine programs.” — Harold Buttram, MD

Critical thinkers and knowledgeable readers who have no ulterior motivation to blindly promote current over-vaccination agendas will agree that the Somali parents who have witnessed the devastating epidemic of Autistic Spectrum Disorders decimate so many of their children since coming to Minnesota, made a wise choice in refusing MMR vaccinations.

The Somali community has seen an alarming incidence of ASD (currently 1 out of every 32 of their children are afflicted, the worst prevalence rate in any Minnesota demographic group, even exceeding the 1 out of 48 among the fully vaccinated white male children in Minnesota). Recall that concurrent with the alarming epidemic of ASD was a dramatic increase in live virus vaccines, mercury-containing vaccine and aluminum-containing vaccines. The incidence of ASD before 1986 (when the vaccine industry was exempted from liability for vaccine deaths or injuries) was 1 in every 10,000 Minnesotan children and the rate went to 1 out of 68 by the time the number of antigens injected routinely into Minnesotan children went from a dozen or so to upwards of 80!

Something more than coincidence is at work. As noted vaccine researcher Dr Christopher Shaw has stated: “Parents refusing to vaccinate according to the recommended CDC schedule are supported by the science.”

Somali children never came down with autism in their native land. It was only after they became war refugees and emigrated to Minnesota and started accepting CDC- and Minnesota Department of Health-mandated MMR live virus-containing vaccinations (often combined with mercury-containing and aluminum-containing vaccinations) that the epidemic devastated the community.

WATCH: Your Child ‘Belongs to the State’: Lawmakers Claim the State Owns Your Children

1 Comment

The Daily Sheeple

Legislators in Texas have been working toward passing a host of laws to reform the state’s Child Protective Services agency. New legislation has been crafted to improve the agency which has seen multiple dilemmas resulting in detrimental safety problems for children in the state. There have been several bills introduced this year aimed at improving the agency. One bill, in particular, House Bill 39, seeks in part to require medical exams to be performed more quickly on children who have been newly placed into the foster care system.

HB 39, introduced by Rep. Gene Wu (D-Houston), would mandate that the state’s Department of Family Protective Services schedule a medical examination for children who have been in temporary state custody for longer than three business days. Children in rural locations would be required to receive a medical exam within seven business days.

While the bill was originally centered around hastening medical exams for new foster children, questions arose regarding whether vaccines would be included as part of these medical exams. Rep. Bill Zedler (R-Arlington), the vice chairman of the Texas Freedom Caucus, introduced an amendment to HB 39 to make vaccinations exempt from the required medical treatments. The bill saw a turbulent debate upon Zedler’s amendment as the discussion turned to childhood vaccines and who should be responsible for crucial medical decisions when custody is obscured.

“You get that child back five, eight, 10 days later, and they’ve now had that surgery or they’ve had these vaccinations,” Zedler said according to Dallas Morning News. “That’s an issue of liberty.” More

At the almost assured risk of pissing off a quarter of a million (251,695 — same-sex married couples in the United States in 2013, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey) same-sex couples, I’d like to put in a word for those of us who refer to ourselves as ‘straight.’

Forty-two percent of us support allowing marriage for same-sex couples.    (http://www.statisticbrain.com/gay-marriage-statistics/)

NONE OF US, by my unscientific survey, enjoys hearing you refer to your spouses as ‘husband’ and ‘wife’.

How about, from now on,  you refer to your significant other as your spouse.

We don’t care who is on top!

Dear America: What the hell happened to us?

“Our government has done more to harm us than any supposed terrorists could have done. They have and are taking our freedom away a day at a time. We are now under constant surveillance and spied on by government agencies. We cannot write an email, text a friend, drive down the road, board a plane, talk on our phones or even shop without our messages being intercepted and logged, our calls being recorded, our license plates being scanned, our face    being photographed and our fingerprints and dna collected at every conceivable opportunity.  So who is it that the government is really afraid of? Some supposed terrorist “over there”,…..or…YOU?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The View from a Political Atheist

After years of writing about the egregious conduct of the federal and state governments, and, after watching the public sitting idly by while our rights are violated especially under this bogus “war on terror”, I have to wonder what happened to us? Maybe the better question is….what happened to so many of you? When did you lose your sense of who you are and where you come from, and what that should represent? Why are so many so quick to label those who are sounding the alarms that something has gone terribly wrong, as being “conspiracy theorists?” Or maybe, leftists, or neo-cons, communists, etc… These labels and others like them serve no purpose but to keep us divided and warring amongst our selves while those orchestrating our demise continue their insidious work. In the end, they all coalesce into the same group. That political divide that so many of us love to argue, is an illusion.

As a political atheist, I firmly believe that if a politician’s lips are moving and sound is coming out…there is a good chance they are lying to us.

We are the terrorists we fear More

This story is a hard one. It began in California with an 80 year old mother who in good faith loaned money to a friend but after the papers were signed, she and her son James had been fleeced by a bait and switch move to where a good portion of their property was lost in the shuffle.

It is an elder abuse and fraud case that just won’t go away, and since the mother has passed, the son who is now 80 years old, inherited the tragedy. It reads like a novel to where ruthless and dishonest players, for a long time had been the standard in Nevada County which included administrators, a judge, County Counsel, Code enforcement and finally a band of attorneys who James Butler had been heartlessly defrauded by.  Yet for now, there is new hope and light at the end of the tunnel.

Placing this story in perspective, a sandy beach by the name of Lander’s Bar is an extension of an old mill site where James Butler has lived for a good many years.  This included 40 acres that was bought adjacent to his mining claim which is still disputed by his ex claim jumper friend, plus the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) which is looking for their own piece of the action. And where is this all leading us. It is taking us down the road to the projected 28 million dollar Lander’s Bar, gold mining claim which lies where the ancient Yuba River and Deer Creek comes together. Miraculously, Jim Butler’s property was skipped over during the gold rush and was never mined because of a gigantic flood that happened a couple of years after 1849. And still to this day, all of that gold still rests 23 or more feet down in the earth. More

Universal Coverage Means Less Care

When the money is gone, treatment is canceled. There will be fewer beds, fewer CT scanners, fewer drugs, and fewer doctors. But all will be fair. No rationing by price, just by waiting lines, political pull—and death. There will be no medical bills to pay after a service, if you get any service. Only taxes in advance, service or no service.

That’s why the universal care advocates count enrollees, not the number of services, and constantly harp on “excessive” treatment, even while planning to make patients wait months for an appointment.”

The reported success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or ObamaCare) is based on enrollment numbers. Millions more have “coverage.” Similarly, the predicted disasters from repeal have to do with loss of coverage. Tens of thousands of deaths will allegedly follow. Activists urge shipping repeal victims’ ashes to Congress—possibly illegal and certainly disrespectful of the loved one’s remains, which will end up in a trash dump.

Where are the statistics about the number of heart operations done on babies born with birth defects, the latest poster children? How about the number of babies saved by this surgery, and the number allowed to die without an attempt at surgery—before and after ACA? I haven’t seen them. Note that an insurance plan doesn’t do the operation. A doctor does. The insurer can, however, try to block it

Also missing are figures on the number of courses of cancer chemotherapy given, or not given, or the time from diagnosis to death in cancer patients before and after ACA. Five-year survival of cancer patients in the U.S. is generally better than in countries that have universal coverage, or the type of plan progressives want to import. Again, the insurance plan isn’t medicine. You can get medicine without insurance, and if you have insurance it might refuse to pay.

There are selected comparisons of change in mortality rates in states that did or did not expand Medicaid (such as New York vs. Pennsylvania). On the other hand, mortality did not decrease in one state (Oregon). These estimates—guesstimates really, are based on the weakest type of data, and the differences may have nothing to do with Medicaid. Maybe it was better AIDS treatments. We hope that the FDA does not use evidence this poor to evaluate drugs.

But what effect did ObamaCare have on overall U.S. mortality?

Between 2014 and 2015, U.S. mortality rates increased for the first time in decades. This primarily affected less-educated whites. Is ObamaCare the cause? There are many factors involved, drug abuse probably being the most important. But I suspect that if repeal had happened in 2012 or 2013, it would have been blamed.

Massachusetts Bill H3027….Objective? To cloak financial exploitation of the elderly

15 Comments

Marti Oakley

Comment:  If ever there was a valid reason for disbarring the BAR, making it unlawful for individuals in this closed union to assemble or to attempt to influence laws affecting the public, Massachusetts H 3027 surely has to be one of those reasons. MJO

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note to Mr. Harshbarger: What exactly is “ordinary negligence?”

The first thing we need to clarify is that probate tribunals (and these are tribunals) operate only under a intentionally constructed system of statutes, rules and regulations that exist only to avoid the common law and access to courts of law. You cannot use the Constitutions, neither state or federal to defend yourself from the predatory activities of these tribunals and the predators who access them for the specific purpose of exploitation and self-enrichment. You have no rights in these tribunals. You have no protections.

Gloucester Times

Harshbarger on Monday asked the Judiciary Committee to throw its support behind a bill that would establish a state office of adult guardianship as a public-private partnership that would handle the appointment of guardians for adults who cannot make their own legal decisions and lack family, friends or access to volunteers who could step into the role.”

At issue is the bill H 3027 currently in the Massachusetts Judiciary Committee. What is clearly a bill meant to legitimize and provide immunity for the predators in the guardianship-for-profit system, the former AG of Massachusetts, Mr. Harshbarger, now newly installed with the Boston lawfirm of Casner & Edwards, is hawking this bill which has no other purpose than to provide protection to the predators.

The first question we all need to ask is:

Who comprises the private part of this so-called “public/private partnership” (ppp)? And why would they be willing to fund a public agency that will supposedly only cost the state about $400 thousand a year to operate?

Sounds tantalizing doesn’t it?! Doesn’t it just give you the warm fuzzies to think there are actually individuals out there who are so altruistic, so philanthropic, that they would fund a public agency dedicated to protecting vulnerable people while saving the state a bucket of money at the same time!! Does it get any better than this? Apparently it does if you are part of the system!

Not so fast.

Veterans in Support of VA Whistleblower Dr. Klein Friday May 12

Veterans in Support of VA Whistleblower Dr. Klein Friday May 12
 
Tampa, FL – May 9, 2017.  Veterans groups and supporters will gather for a national press conference and rally in Poplar Bluff, Missouri at Noon on Friday, May 12th to demonstrate support for VA Whistleblowers across the country.
 
Honorary invitees in support of our Veterans include: Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Jason Smith, Senator Johnny Isakson and Senator Jon Tester.
 
VA Whistleblower speakers include: Brandon Coleman, Phoenix VA, and Germaine Clarno, Chicago Hines VA. 
 
The crisis in Veterans healthcare and disability benefits has been covered extensively on national news networks including a recent Fox News interview with Dr. Klein, a VA whistleblower from Poplar Bluff, Missouri whose concerns for patients not having access to care drove him to speak up on their behalf. Now Dr. Klein needs Veterans to show their support for him.
 
On April 27, President Trump signed a new Executive Order creating the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection to report to Secretary Shulkin as a means of improving conditions at the VA, protect VA whistleblowers, and hold those responsible accountable. The President gave VA 45 days to establish the office and appoint an Executive Director, but no known action has taken place. Dr. Klein was hopeful that the President’s involvement would help him keep his job and allow him to again see patients suffering in pain. On Friday, May 12, Dr. Klein’s Stay Order issued by the Merits Systems Protection Board will expire and Veterans will likely lose another advocate. 
 
“The Office of Special Counsel got involved, then the Merit System Protection Board got involved, then US Senators got involved, yet the VA Hospital in Poplar Bluff has disregarded the law and the President’s new Executive Order protecting VA whistleblowers.” – Natalie Khawam, Attorney for Dr. Klein & President of the Whistleblower Law Firm. 
 
We ask that you come in support of VA Whistleblowers who care about protecting our Veterans! 
 
Veterans and supporters will rally at Noon at the Highland Drive Church of Christ, located at: 1601 Highland Drive Popular Bluff, Missouri, 63901, which is adjacent to the John J. Pershing VA hospital, on Friday May 12. Organizers emphasize that the demonstration will follow all laws and will not disrupt any VA activities or anyone coming to or leaving the hospital. For more information call the Whistleblower Law Firm at 813-944-7853
