    FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly with Carole Herman

    in Family

    Guest: Carole Herman


    After a three-year uphill battle with apathetic officials, files that mysteriously disappeared, several closures of her Aunt’s case with no action, and a pattern of stonewalling by state agencies created to protect patients from abuse and poor care, two things happened: The district administrator of the agency that licensed and monitored nursing homes was fired and Carole Herman, who fought the system for three years, founded FATE, Foundation Aiding The Elderly.


    Carole protects the weak, fights the powerful, demands government do its job and doctor's to fulfill the Hippocratic Oath.


    In October 2001 Carole was a Volunteer Spirit Award winner receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with FATE on behalf of the elderly and in February 2002 Carole was presented with a Resolution from the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors for "her dedication and care for the elderly of our community."


    Today, FATE has affiliated organizations and colleagues fighting elderly patient's rights in Texas, Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Carolina. FATE has helped families all over the country. Civil actions have been filed on behalf of patients and their families. And the movement to illuminate and reverse the all-too-common incidents of abuse such as neglect, psychiatric drugging and criminal assaults of the elderly is growing.


    FATE fulfills a vital and increasing need of providing direct action advocacy and education that will ensure that care is received with the dignity that everyone deserves.

    in Politics

    Join us this evening as we expose the persecution and false charges levied against Cary Crittendon in California.  Cary is currently held at Elmwood Correctional Facility charged with parole violations (non-specific).  A May 4th hearing has been scheduled to allow the prosecutor time to fabricate other charges.  The intent? To sentence Cary to a long period in prison for exposing the corruption of a sitting judge with a long history of corruption. 


    Later in the show:  Doug Franks will join us to talk about the recent victim's symposium that took place in Florida where families that had been targeted had an actual opportunity to speak at length about the abuses they had endured at the hands of predatory guardians and the infamous BAR Association, along with the corruption of the probate courts facilitated by hand-picked "judges". 


    Should be an interesting show!

    Gowing up Mayberry: Neil Shelton is Learning About Parental Alienation

    in Dads and Family

    Neil Shelton joins us this evening to discuss parental alienation at the hands of corrupt family courts.  Also joining us is Raquel Okayay who who has investigated and written about the bias of family courts in favor of those with the most money and leverage.


    In this instance, divorce was not enough.  Neil's ex is also trying to divorce him from his children. Neil is not asking for anything extraordinary, nor is he asking for special treatment.  Having been repeatedly jailed on false charges, and having his businesses and livlihood wiped out, the last injury was the taking of his right to see his children. 


    The harassment of Neil Shelton and the violation of his rights and those of his children appears to be a top priority for those who pull the strings on behalf of the former Mrs. Shelton.

    Guest: Matt Dominiguez-  Public Policy Manager for the Humane Society of the United States Farm Animal Protection Campaign..


    GAG ORDER   With "ag gag" bills, Big Ag seeks to stifle reform


    Inside windowless barns, sows chewed the bars of their gestation crates, confined so tightly that they couldn’t even turn around. Brown puddles had formed from a diarrhea outbreak. And piles of dead piglets were being gutted—so that their intestines could be fed to their mothers.


    These images would have remained hidden there in Owensboro, Kentucky, if HSUS undercover investigators hadn’t videotaped the dark reality. It was hard to watch, but critical: The feeding of pigs to pigs violated state law. Other practices seemed to violate human decency.


    “At the end of the day,” an investigator reported, a sow “started making the worst sound I have heard since I started working [here]. I ran to her and she had gotten her nose in between the leverage bar that opens and closes the feed trough and a bar on her cage. … [She] scraped her nose about an inch long [leaving] her mouth bleeding.”


    If proposed “ag gag” laws are passed, moments like these will stay concealed from the American public. Introduced in state legislatures around the country the last few years at the behest of the meat, dairy and egg industry, the bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing by making it illegal to take video or photos on factory farms or to seek employment for the purpose of exposing abuse and food safety problems. They also sometimes require mandatory reporting with impossibly short timelines so that whistleblowers must “out” themselves and no pattern of abuse can be documented.
