Whistleblowers! Is presented in co-ordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Annual Summit in Washington D.C. July 27, 28 0f 2017

Hosted by Marti Oakley

Guest: Sean Higgins

Sean Higgins, who has reported continuously on the mismanagement at the Memphis VA, was fired for the third time just as President Trump signed the VA bill that supposedly will protect VA whistleblowers.

Mike Volpe: The Memphis VA Medical Center tried and failed to get a restraining order against Sean Higgins, a whistleblower. On March 17, 2017, then Memphis VA medical director, James Belmont Jr., applied for an ex-parte, meaning done without knowledge, restraining order against the Memphis VA employee.

As CDN previously reported, during the Memphis VA’s investigation of Higgins into purported workplace harassment the hospital placed a bogus restraining order into the investigative file.

The failed attempt to get a restraining order was not documented in Higgins’ investigative file. This new revelation means the hospital tried to covertly get a restraining order and when that failed, allegedly created one.

Now, it appears the VA Secretary, David Shulkin wants answers.

***CALL TO ACTION*** Help STOP Horse Slaughter for Human Consumption

3 Comments

***CALL TO ACTION*** URGENT***CRITICAL***

 

On Thursday, July 20,2017 Senate is voting to make the slaughter of horses for human consumption legal in the United States. The American Mustang and Wild Burros will be the first hit, as approx. 100,000 are slated to be slaughtered with the passing of this Bill.

Americans must stop this from happening, both for the sake of the animal as well as the debt that we historically owe the wild and untamed Mustang. America’s culture is deeply rooted in the Great American West. John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and Charles Bronson, to name just a few, had their careers shaped by the Western. Ronald Reagan, the star of many a cowboy film, became the President. Throughout all of the years of tradition, runs the Mustang. Today, it’s very name has come to stand for freedom, dignity, and unbridled passion for life.

HORSE POWER 2017

With age, This Mustang increases in value….(Obviously, positioned around your car)

Why doesn’t this one? (Obviously, positioned around horse)

Please….don’t let it end with the legal, wholesale annihilation of an American Icon. The Call to Action is Now! Dial this number to Speak to your State Senators and Reps (202) 224-3121 Press 1 for Senator then put in your zip code -to STOP the defacing american values. Can call 24/7.. After hours leave message. Our Voices Do Matter!!  Takes Teamwork to see any *V*I*C*T*O*R*I*E*S*

You can say, “As your constituent, I urge you to please do all you can to prevent America’s wild horses and burros from being slaughtered.”

Our guest today is Gayle Hunt, President & Founder of the Central Oregon Wild Horse Coalition (COWHC),  established as a non-profit organization in 2002.
The Ochoco National Forest is seeking comments on a proposal to revise the
Ochoco Wild and Free Roaming Herd Management Plan, and sent a Scoping Letter to the public that is vague and doesn’t state the proposed Appropriate Management Level (AML), the number of wild horses and burros that will be allowed to remain on this HMA.  (The current AML is 55-65 wild horses – not allowing a high enough number to be viable ).
We’re asking YOU help save these horses and send in comments to the Forest Service requesting the AML be set at a viable herd number.  In order to have a viable herd number, the Forest Service needs to set an AML of a minimum of 150-200 horses, including 50 breeding age adults.  Also, please ask for a genetically sustainable herd.  The Forest Service is doing genetic augmentation, so ask them to provide the public with all research and documentation for genetic augmentation, since their management decisions have included this.
On this show you’ll learn more about how COWHC is currently trying to preserve the current 130 or so wild horses currently on the Big Summit HMA, about 30 miles east of Prineville, Oregon.  Check out the COWHC facebook page HERE for the latest updates.  COWHC is boots on the ground and provides one of the most accurate herd inventories in the nation, annually bringing a cadre of about 80 volunteers to count these wild horses on their turf.  They also work on on-the-ground improvements like water developments, forage improvements, fence removal and other projects.
Public comments for this plan for Big Summit wild horses are due by July 21, 2017 and can be submitted by email
to BLM_NV_East_Pershing_Complex_EA@blm.gov with “East Pershing Complex Gather” in the subject line.

Questions and written comments should be directed to: Samantha Gooch, Wild Horse and Burro Specialist, BLM Humboldt River Field Office, 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., Winnemucca, NV 89445.

You can also submit a comment electronically at https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public/CommentInput?project=46228
Commenters should be aware before including their address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in their comment, that their entire comment – including identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time.  While they can ask BLM in their comment to withhold personal identifying information from public review, BLM cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.  Anonymity is not allowed for submissions from organizations or businesses and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses.
This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. and Dir. of Wild Horse Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
