We'll be talking to John Ekdahl, (@JohnEkdahl) a co-blogger at Ace of Spades who has flushed out a major story behind the Get Out the Vote disaster on Tuesday. What went wrong? What was ORCA and Did it cost Mitt Romney the election?
Have Your Questions ready! The phone lines and chat room will be open.
Also: Post-Election Madness, and My new gig with Kevin Jackson and The Blacksphere.
In January 2014 I did a show about Blackfish, the eye-opening documentary that uncovered and exposed SeaWorld for decades of animal abuse, neglect and kidnapping baby orca whales from their beloved families in the world's oceans. This was a very powerful 'first show of the year' that touched so many of you.
Since it's release and continued airings on CNN, Blackfish has been causing major waves at SeaWorld, including rapid declines in attendance and ticket sales and collective debates as to whether or not orca's belong in captivity. Millions of people from around the world have got onboard The Blackfish Effect, and continue to spread the world about the documentary in hopes of one day shutting down SeaWorld and releasing the orca's back into their natural environment.
Former SeaWorld trainer Samantha Berg (who was featured in the Blackfish movie) talks with us about her thoughts on Blackfish, SeaWorld and what will likely be the future for the beloved Tilikum. Samantha was most generous with her time and spent nearly 20 minutes with us when we were only scheduled for 3-5 minutes! Thanks again Samantha! For a remainder of the show, we'll opened up the phone lines to hear from you, and your thoughts about Blackfish & SeaWorld. Oh yes, and my Mother makes an appearance....

Alex Louise Dorer of Fins and Fluke and Mini Krishnan of Orca United will join me to talk about the upcoming Marineland Protest: Free Kiska on Saturday, May 31 at 11:00am at MarineLand Canada 7657 Portage Road, Niagara Falls, Ontario L2E 6X8.
Since the release of the documentary "Blackfish", there has been a huge momentum to help liberate captive orcas across the world from inadequate living conditions at marine parks. Kiska is the last captive orca in Canada, and has been named as the saddest and loneliest in the world. This event will highlight the issues of marine mammal captivity and will focus on calling for Kiska's release to a seapen or more suitable home with other orcas. It will be to draw in more support in closing down Marineland, and will follow a protest on May 17 to help to continue the pressure on the park. All are welcome to join!

Even as Romney's "Orca" was going belly-up on Election Day, another group of conservatives were enjoying the fruits of labor that began long before voters headed to the polls. As the 2012 campaign began, American Majority Action, a conservative 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, invested in a new tool called "Political Gravity."
Ned Ryun is the founder and CEO of Voter Gravity, a map and mobile-based voter contact technology that turns data into votes. A former writer for President George W. Bush and the son of former Olympic medalist and U.S. Rep. Jim Ryun (R-KS), Ned is also the founder and president of American Majority, a non-partisan political training institute that has trained over 27,000 liberty-minded leaders in the past five years.
Ned Ryun's commentary on grassroots politics and political technology has appeared on media outlets including “The O’Reilly Factor,” ABC’s “World News Tonight,” Time Magazine and The Wall Street Journal. Prior to his current projects, Ned founded and directed Generation Joshua, a civics education program reaching nearly 10,000 middle and high school students.

They are an animal that possesses great spiritual power not to be messed with
All whales in captivity experience psychological trauma: It's not just Tilikum
These are animals that have highly elaborated emotional lives
There's no record of an Orca doing any harm in the wild!
In 1970 Divers used speedboats, bombs, & planes to heard & corral Orcas to abduct their young. The adults refused to leave while their young were being taken and 3 died in the nets, which they cut open, filled with stones, & anchored their tails to sink them. In 1976 Washington State evicted them forever from our waters. They abducted Tilikum from Iceland when he was only 2 years old. In 1991 he pulled a trainer to her death. It was buried in the news merely as a drowning and the park closed selling Tilikum to SeaWorld for breeding. More deaths have been attributed to Tilikum, who is now ketp locked up in a pen most of his day. Do you think it would be okay to be ripped from your family as a child and imprisoned for life?
This movie is worth watching to update your thinking about live animal theme parks.
When Young Orcas are ripped from their moms and pods the wailing and crying continues hopelessly lound and unceasing. Seaworld even did this with their captivity born Orcas further traumatizing the animals they were charged with better custodial care. It is a sham, a lie.
It is inhumane and Shameful. How is this different than Slavery in America? The Assimilation movement of boarding schools for Native American children, also ripped from their families? Yes they aren animals and it still unethical.
Shari Tarantino President of the board at Orca Conservancy.
Orca Conservancy, along with four other conservation groups, the Pacific Whale Watch Association, and the treaty tribes of Washington State are requesting your participation in opposing the Admiralty Inlet Pilot Tidal FERC Project No. 12690, to be sited on the east side of Admiralty Inlet in Puget Sound, Washington, about 1 kilometer west of Admiralty Head and part of Whidbey Island. Our opposition is not against ‘green alternative energy’, but we do oppose the current site chosen.
This OpenHydro Pilot Tidal Turbine Project could have detrimental impacts on our treasured Endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale (SRKW) population, as well as affecting transient orcas and 12 other Federally Protected ESA species, including Chinook Salmon, Chum Salmon, North Pacific Humpback Whales, and the Eastern Stellar Sea Lion.
The Endangered Southern Resident Community of Killer Whales (SRKWs) is now at the lowest population number in more than a decade. The three family groups, J, K and L Pod, currently stand at 80 members, (Center for Whale Research, 7/2013). Adding insult to injury, there have been no calves born this year despite recovery plans in place in Canada and the U.S.
What clearly needs to be understood is that tidal energy production is still very much in its infancy. That the amount of power produced so far has been small. Currently, only two commercial-sized tidal power plants operate in the world. One is located in La Rance, France; the other is in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Mike Garrett is an anti captivity activist from the beautiful Niagara Region of Canada. He has been actively protesting against Marineland Canada located in Niagara Falls for over a year now. He was inspired by the brave actions of the former employee 'whistleblowers' who exposed ongoing and persistent animal abuse at this captive display facility This past summer he began a campaign of leafleting park visitors as they exited the park in order to provide them with more information on what was going on there. Within a few short weeks of standing on public property I was threatened with violence by the owner and then hit with a 1.5 million dollar lawsuit. He hopes to defend himself against this bully lawsuit and continue the campaign to spread public awareness about captivity at Marineland.
He is also author the website MarinelandInDepth.com.
