In May, 2016, the Bureau of Land Management promoted Special Agent Dan Love, the BLM agent who oversaw security during the agency’s failed roundup of Cliven Bundy’s cattle in April 2014, to a new position overseeing the security of BLM facilities nationwide.

And now, the Dept. of the Interior Office of Inspector General issued a report about Love’s ethics violations at Burning Man and more. The report states:

“We also confirmed that the Supervisory Agent intervened in the hiring process by increasing the number of candidates that would be interviewed. As a result, the Supervisory Agent’s friend, who had worked with the Supervisory Agent as a Federal air marshal received an interview and was ultimately hired as a BLM special agent.
During our investigation, the Supervisory Agent displayed a lack of candor when interviewed and tried to influence an employee’s comments prior to an interview.”

Report: BLM agent broke federal ethics rules at Burning Man

by Jenny Kane

A Bureau of Land Management supervisory agent from Utah violated federal ethics rules after he used his position to get his family and girlfriend into Burning Man and influenced the hiring process for a friend, according to a report released Monday.

The Department of Interior’s Office of the Inspector General for a year and a half investigated three complaints about the agent. The agent is not named in the report but is described as “the person behind many of the BLM requests” at Burning Man that were canceled in 2015, the report said.

Those requests — which included a more than $1 million VIP compound complete with flushing toilets and 24-hour access to ice cream for BLM officials at the annual event in the Black Rock Desert — were pushed by Utah’s former Special Agent in Charge, Dan Love, who oversaw law enforcement at Burning Man for several years.

The VIP compound was an unprecedented request of Burning Man, the organization that hosts 68,000-person artistic campout over Labor Day weekend in Northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. When details of the compound leaked to the Reno Gazette-Journal, members of Congress and the public expressed outrage. After the event, Love was reassigned.

Love, who is best known for his chief law enforcement role during the 2014 Bundy standoff, did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday or Wednesday. He is expected to be a key witness in the Bundy trials, according to an article published last year by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The first phase of the trials are set to begin Monday.

Inspector General’s Office officials said that the agent’s name was withheld in the report because he is not a top official within the agency, and because it is considered a personnel matter that BLM officials will handle.

According to the Inspector General’s report, the unnamed agent used his official position to buy three sold-out tickets to Burning Man; had five on-duty BLM officers escorting his father, family-friend and girlfriend during the event; and also changed the hiring process so an unqualified applicant, a personal friend of his, would be hired.

“Federal ethics regulations prohibit soliciting gifts from a prohibited source. Ethics regulations also prohibit federal employees from using any authority associated with their public position for the private gain of friends and relatives,” the report said.

The agent’s visitors also received unauthorized access to the Burning Man headquarters for BLM officials and they received overnight lodging in BLM-leased facilities.

When word spread that the agent had complaints filed against him, he used intimidation to discourage his co-workers from speaking with investigators.

“You know, if you don’t side with me, grenades are going to go off and you’ll get hit,” the agent told an employee who later spoke with investigators, according to the report.

196 wild horses died at BLM’s Auschwitz for wild horses (a feedlot in Scott City, KS)

In the middle of June, 2014, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) moved 1,493 wild horses from the Teterville Long Term Holding pastures in Oklahoma to the Beef Belt Feedyard in Scott City, Kansas. Over 13% of these wild horses died at this feedlot.

191 of the wild horses died in less than a year (7/7/14 – 6/30/15).

In a BLM “news” release dated 8/15/14 (over two years ago), the BLM announced that 57 wild horses had died at the BLM’s Scott City, Kansas “corral.” In this news release, the BLM stated that it had “launched an investigation” into the cause of deaths, and promised that “Once the investigation is concluded, the team will complete a report that will be made publicly available.”

To date, over two years later, the BLM has not made any report available to the public about the Scott City feedlot deaths.

Wild Horse Freedom Federation (WHFF) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, and found out that 196 horses died at the Scott City feedlot from 6/17/14 – 8/2/16.

87 of the 196 wild horses were euthanized. More

1779142_741581802541570_1637925020_nLiving in a rural agricultural community, I have witnessed first hand the devastation to the land and water from industrialized agriculture.  The other thing I have noticed over the years, is the dwindling numbers and kinds of wildlife, both large and small.  It is not uncommon to see major fish kills in rivers, lakes and streams, dead birds and small animals in large numbers around the fields of gmo crops.  The continual spraying of toxic chemicals to grow what is widely recognized as crops not fit for human consumption, is not to be stopped.

It only gets worse from here

Having done several Whistleblower’s episodes on my blogtalk channel “TS Radio”, the news that Sonny Perdue will most likely be the new Secretary of Agriculture does not come as good news.  Perdue, who is funded and backed by major bio-piracy companies most notably Monsanto, and others who are in the process of overtaking agriculture for profit, should come as no surprise.

The Vagina Rebellion? About those million women who took to the streets

Opinion:  Marti Oakley

 

I was contacted before the massive march by more than a million women, asking me to take part. Show my support! I owed it to them…what with me being so “out there” on so many things. And I thought about that for about ten seconds. Just long enough for me to give a resounding “NO!” And what I saw in these protests were signs that were just as vulgar, just as denigrating to women as anything that might have been said by some man trying to prove his masculinity.

So what did you accomplish? You took to the streets with your vulgar signs and thought this would elicit respect? Really?

I have no idea what is supposed to have been accomplished by these so-called protests. While I too found the comments by our then, soon to be president, disgusting and crass, the truth is, there are few men out there who have not spoken to or about women in this way. And they always have and always will. That doesn’t make it right, acceptable or otherwise okay. Its just a fact. Put your big girl panties on and get over it.

What seemed to have been skipped over by the protestors, was the following statement to the effect that “and they’ll let you do it too!” Now that I found truly disgusting mostly because we all know it to be true. There are always women who use their bodies to get or achieve something they want. How these women came to see themselves as having no worth other than this, is something worth investigating. Who told them, what convinced them, they were worth so little or that their body was all that they had of value?

While all you million or so vagina protestors were parading around with your vulgar signs and your idiotic protests, many of the rest of us were fighting the corruption in family courts. The kidnapping of children by CPS, forced adoptions, parental alienation caused by the courts, the targeting of the elderly in probate so their estates can be looted by professional predators.

So where are all you vagina activists when we need support for families?  For alienated parents, for isolated elders, for families so distressed that suicides have occurred? Where was all your self righteous, self absorbed indignation then?

And there you were holding a sign saying “My P@#$# isn’t for grabbing”. I was SO not impressed. And from what I saw, there were not too many of you that would really need to be concerned about this anyway.

You have emailed me telling me what a dismal excuse I am for a woman because I wouldn’t take to the streets screaming about who may or may not want to grab my vagina? If even half of you fools that paraded across the country would stand up to help in this fight to preserve our families, to protect them from being destroyed by government agencies and kangaroo courts, I would have been on the front lines.

As it is……I wouldn’t worry about who might want to grab your junk. They are most likely now more intrigued by what a bunch of asses you made of yourselves.

And that’s MY opinion.

Actual hacking: Every reporter needs to understand Sharyl Attkisson’s case against the US government

by Jon Rappoport

January 31, 2017

Sharyl Attkisson was a star investigative reporter for CBS News. After two decades at the network, she resigned on March 10, 2014.

Among the controversial stories she covered: the Fast and Furious gun-walking program, in which the government “purposely allowed licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders and arrest them” (LA Times, 10/3/11); the Benghazi attacks and murders; the CDC fraud in grossly overestimating the number of Swine Flu cases in America.

Attkisson now hosts a weekly television news program, Full Measure, for the Sinclair Broadcast Group. She writes at sharylattkisson.com.

Attkisson is also engaged in a struggle with the federal government.

Attkisson writes: “I just filed my latest appeal to the FBI’s improper withholding of my FBI file. You may not know it, but every American citizen—even a lowly reporter—is entitled to see his FBI file, if one exists.”

Time-sensitive: contact senators about 5G (nationwide campaign)

* * * * *

Dear Everyone,

US FCC wants to “streamline” the approval process for DAS (Distributed Antenna System) 4G/5G ubiquitous cell towers by exempting them from the 1996 Telecommunications Act!  

And the US Senate will imminently be voting on S.19 and S.88, to expand DAS 4G/5G deployment!

If such efforts succeed, millions of small cell towers (on existing light poles/utility poles, or new ones) will be deployed everywhere, throughout residential neighborhoods. The millimeter microwave radiation deployed will produce horrific health effects, worsening EVERYONE’s health, and will remove the remaining pollinators. It’s THAT serious. The bees in particular will die off rapidly, per studies of bees and microwave radiation.

Minnesota: The PolyMet Copper Mine Project and the Lethal Risks to Lake Superior

Duty to Warn

“Northern Minnesotans, Native American Water Protectors ( like the heroes at Standing Rock), sportsmen, environmentalists, downstream businesses, wild rice harvesters, fish, game, birds and just plain working folks whose babies and other vulnerable beings with developing brains need non-toxic water to thrive or simply survive must understand that such relatively common catastrophes could destroy the aquifers in the BWCAW, Birch Lake, the Partridge River, the Embarrass River, the St. Louis River, the city of Duluth and ultimately, Lake Superior.”

It’s an Acceptable Risk for Foreign Investors to Take, but What About Us?

ALL tailings “ponds” are a problem. If they don’t breach and spill massive amounts of toxic sludge into the environment like at Mount Polley, they leach that contamination slowly, poisoning the waters and lands around them.”  —

Last year, Duluth News-Tribune published a Local News article with the title “EPA signals its support for final PolyMet review”.

The article ended with what I regard as an intentionally deceptive and woefully insufficient sentence: “Critics say the project is likely to taint downstream waters with acidic runoff”. More

LIBERAL-MANIA FALLS INTO CULTURE SHOCK: IT’S THE TRUMP CARD AFFECT

4 Comments

The question: How were so many Americans just content with government doing it all for them while their individual freedoms just withered away and
vanished?

the-king-of-diamonds-1

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

   Donald Trump is a gambling man.  If he wasn’t good at it, he would have sold his casinos a long time ago.  Also, running for President was a gamble.  He knew about the risk but he had something that the other candidates didn’t have.  He knew a little slight of hand and then he pulled out his trump card.  After he was elected he showed us that he also had a few things up his sleeve.  Though he is now the President, he is not a king as kings are not elected by the people. They normally are installed by a former king or queen through family succession.  But for now, I shall place these ideas on hold for a moment so as to have a closer look at the history books. 

History reveals two sides.  Usually it is either the dark side or the light side.  So think about America as more light is shown on the following subject.

Read the Explosive New Expose by Michael Volpe :Did judges in Sandra Grazzini-Rucki case previously fix husband’s cases?

(Dakota County, Minn) This article draws upon court records and legal research that suggests David Rucki has received special treatment in cases presided over by both Judge David L. Knutson  and Judge Karen Asphaug. From Volpe: “The judges in Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s criminal and family court case may have previously fixed cases for her ex-husband, raising further doubts about the fairness of their rulings.
