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

A CIVIL RIGHTS MATTER: Supreme Court to Rule On Federal Workers’ Right to Take Complaint to U.S. District Court

Tanya Ward Jordan, President
The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C)

On Monday, April 17th, many present and former federal employees lined up to witness the Supreme Court justices open their April session with the case of Anthony Perry, a former Department of Commerce Census Bureau employee and a member of the Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C).

The question the Supreme Court with newly appointed Judge Neil Gorsuch on the bench must answer is — Whether a Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) decision dismissing a mixed case on “jurisdictional grounds” is subject to judicial review in district court or in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

If the Perry case is allowed to proceed in district court it has a far more likely chance of being heard by a jury. For the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is known to largely “RUBBER STAMP” federal agency decisions.

Christopher Landau, who represented Perry, urged the court to rule that mixed cases like his client’s should go to the district court. But, Brian Fletcher, assistant to the U.S. solicitor general, argued on behalf of the federal government. Fletcher disagreed asserting Perry’s case should go to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

If the Supreme Court were to send Perry’s case to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, rather than the U.S. District Court, it would be indeed a civil rights blow for Federal workers who challenge unlawful civil rights violations and adverse actions (i.e. wrongful demotions, suspensions, and job terminations). For “some studies report that the U.S. Courts of Appeals affirmed 90 percent of all cases they decided from 1995 to 2005.”  (See footnote 1)

Penn State Law students submitted an amicus brief to Supreme Court in support of Mr. Perry’s right to pursue his claims in U.S. District Court. The amicus brief read:
“The issue at the center of Perry v. Merit Systems Protection Board stems from a 2012 Supreme Court decision, in which the Court held that federal employees whose discrimination claims are dismissed on procedural grounds by the MSPB are entitled to have their cases heard on the merits in federal district court. The Civil Rights Appellate Clinic, along with plaintiff Anthony Perry, argued that a federal employee’s discrimination claim dismissed on jurisdictional grounds, as opposed to procedural grounds, is entitled to the same type of review.”   Read more at link http://news.psu.edu/story/456966/2017/03/21/penn-state-law-students-submit-amicus-brief-supreme-court

The upcoming Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision on the Perry case will most likely close the loop and provide clarity for many federal workers, like Perry, who are often coerced into signing settlement agreements that require them to drop valid discrimination claims against the federal government.

Duty to Warn

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

“(The use of the term “conspiracy theorist” is a similarly cowardly ad hominem attack tactic largely used by official government dis-informer groups like America’s multinational corporations, the Deep State ruling groups, the intelligence agencies like the FBI and CIA, (not to mention similar groups like Britain’s MI6 and Israel’s Mossad).”

_____________________________________________________________

In recent days, I have been in communication with several journalists who have been writing about issues that pertain to an issue in which I have some expertise: the alleged safety and efficacy of the huge number of neurotoxin-containing vaccines that are rather cavalierly administered to babies as young as 1 day, 2 months, 4 months and 6 months, ages in which their blood-brain barriers, their immune systems and their mitochondria are at their most immature and most vulnerable to toxins.

Recently there has been information in the news about Rochester, Minnesota’s school board. They have decreed, probably with the advice and blessings of the Mayo Clinic, that they will be banning from school attendance the couple hundred “under-immunized or un-immunized” students (according to CDC recommendations) until they receive their shots or get clearance from a physician or a parent attesting to their philosophical or religious objections to the shots. The school board has somehow deemed these students to be an existential threat to the immunized students on the basis of the un-proven theory of “herd immunity”. More
