    Pet Radio- Headlines: Small Town Municipal Animal Shelter Raided by State Health

    in Pets

    Helmetta is a very small town in New Jersey. In 2011, under the direction of the Mayor, an animal shelter was built to not only take in strays and abused animals from the township, but for a fee they offered their services to 10 other surroundig town. From the shelters begining it ws plagued by complaints of unsanitary and unhealthy conditions, animals being euthanized without evr being put up for adoption, adopting out animals without being vetted, spayed or neutered, and even adopting out sick and pregnant dogs and cats. The New Jersey SPCA apparently agreed and issued citations against the shelter six times.Still nothing happened and as the years went by, it apparently only became worse... until a local news station did  series of reports and the sheltrs own vet. went on camera to blow the wistle. In November the NJ health department and the NJ SPCA raided the shelter nd closed it down for health code violations amd the town council turned the shelter over to the SPCA for temporary administration. According to sources the SPCA found the conditions and health of the animals even worse than what they feared. And this bizzare story continues with some questioning the Mayor's role in this.


    Two people involved in this case are joining us. First Martin Mondoker, a local activist will share with us this whole story from his standpoint, and  Michelle Dawn with Homeless Animal Lifeline, a rescue who was allowed to pull cats from the shelter and witnessed first hand the conditions inside the shelter.


    Join us to hear how a few dedicated people refused to have their voice ignored and made a difference.

    The Farm

    in News

    On this week’s The Farm radio talk show on the Overthrow Radio Network, host Chris Petherick talks with Laurie Cohen Peters and Liz Reitzig, the founders of Farm Food Freedom Coalition (F3C).


    Chris, Laurie and Liz will discuss local food production in the age of industrial farming, including the tragic case of New York farmer Joshua Rockwood, who was recently arrested and hit with a series of absurd charges because, among other things, his livestock’s water was frozen in the middle of winter and he did not heat his barns.


    Laurie is a co-founder of the F3C and is a member of the Rawesome Food Club in Venice, Calif., which was raided in 2012 by California officials because it specialized in unprocessed foods, including raw milk. Liz is co-coordinator of Grassfed on the Hill buying club, which serves the greater Washington, D.C. area and is co-founder of F3C. She has spent the past six years representing small farms and consumers at the state legislature and in the halls of Congress lobbying for fewer restrictions on farmers.

    Bill Browder: Profile in Courage

    in Relationships

    A real-life political thriller about an American financier in the Wild East of Russia, the murder of his principled young tax attorney, and his dangerous mission to expose the Kremlin’s corruption.

    Bill Browder’s journey started on the South Side of Chicago and moved through Stanford Business School to the dog-eat-dog world of hedge fund investing in the 1990s. It continued in Moscow, where Browder made his fortune heading the largest investment fund in Russia after the Soviet Union’s collapse. But when he exposed the corrupt oligarchs who were robbing the companies in which he was investing, Vladimir Putin turned on him and, in 2005, had him expelled from Russia. 

    In 2007, a group of law enforcement officers raided Browder’s offices in Moscow and stole $230 million of taxes that his fund’s companies had paid to the Russian government. Browder’s attorney Sergei Magnitsky investigated the incident and uncovered a sprawling criminal enterprise. A month after Sergei testified against the officials involved, he was arrested and thrown into pre-trial detention, where he was tortured for a year. On November 16, 2009, he was led to an isolation chamber, handcuffed to a bedrail, and beaten to death by eight guards in full riot gear. 

    Browder glimpsed the heart of darkness, and it transformed his life: he embarked on an unrelenting quest for justice in Sergei’s name, exposing the towering cover-up that leads right up to Putin. A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world. - See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Red-Notice/Bill-Browder/9781476755717#sthash.33OnZC9p.dpuf

    Introducing Gospel Artist Duran Buckingham

    in Music

    He follows the proverbial lines of being raised in the church and followed the typical Christian upbringing.  The real story begins when he becomes a young adult and finds himself in the secular world of music and the opulent lifestyle of a drug dealer.  Duran was enticed by the money and power that the R&B world had to offer. He has shared the stage with many artists such as R. Kelly, Lil Wayne, and other A-List artists.  Along with the fame, there was a dark side of drugs, money, and women that would eventually be more than he could bear.   While he was living in suburban Atlanta, Duran received a call which had him leave the house and soon after his home was raided.  It was then that Duran realized he had not only been given a warning but a mandate to turn from that lifestyle and go back to his first works. Duran rededicated his life to Christ and announced his calling to minister to the masses.  From this revelation, New Creation materialized with a mission to envelope and encourage young people to use their talents to edify and uplift the name of the Lord.  Within the first 7 months that the group existed, they recorded with Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones twice for The Word Network and once for Black Entertainment Television Network (BET).   Along with DBM, he is also the visionary behind a non-profit organization named Stretch Outreach Ministries. Stretch’s mission is to reach past our normal limitations to win souls for Christ. Mr. Buckingham is well on his way to stardom and is a very motivated and determined individual who is inspired by the scripture Galatians 6:9 which says “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” NKJ

    The Queen Me Show: The Original Ride or Die Chicks ( The Amazon African Women)

    in Radio

    For the better part of 200 years, thousands of female soldiers fought and died to expand the borders of their West African kingdom. Even their conquerors, the French, acknowledged their "prodigious bravery." According to Greek accounts, the earliest Amazons came from Libya (then a name for most of North Africa). They wore red leather and carried crescent-shaped shields. It was these Libyan Amazons, they said, who later founded cities and temples in the Aegean and Anatolia. At a much later period, the Amazons of Dahomey were crack all-female troops, all female, who also served as royal bodyguards. They were also priestesses and wore crescent moon crowns.The Hausa had a number of warrior queens, notably Amina of Zau Zau. A woman named Bazao-Turunku led warriors and founded a town south of Zaria. Nupe women warriors called Isadshi-Koseshi fought as fiercely as the men, opposing invasions of the Fulbe conquerers who raided the Nupe for cattles and slaves, especially women. We are going to pay respect to the woman warriors and explain why and who were the original ride or die chicks.

    Veterans Fight for MMJ and VA Benefits - An Expert Panel

    in News

    In January 2011 the Veterans Administration issued a directive stating that patients in pain control treatment who are participating in state marijuana programs “must not be denied VHA services.” Despite this, numerous complaints have come from vets being denied their pain medicines and other VA services because they find benefit to using marijuana medicinally.


     


    The guests on the Monday, February 16 at 6 p.m. show have been working with government administrators and elected officials to insure that veterans are not denied VA benefits because they chose to use marijuana medicinally.


     


    Michael Karwitz, Executive Director of Veterans for Medical Cannabis, is a disabled veteran who has benefited greatly from medicinal cannabis. He has worked with national and international organizations furthering the use of medicinal marijuana. Having met personally with many VA administrators, it was his efforts that led to the issuance of the directive protecting veterans from being denied VA benefits if they use marijuana.


     


    Marcus Boyd is the Vice Chair of the San Diego Chapter of Americans for Safe Access. He has been denied his pain medication by the San Diego VA because of his use of cannabis and has called for action to protest his and other vets’ denial of services. Mr. Boyd also obtained a bit of notoriety when his grow was raided by a DEA agent wearing a shirt proclaiming "Fuck the growers...Marijuana is still illegal."


     


    Ellen Komp, Deputy Director of CaNORML is a long-time activist working on both medical marijuana and legalization issues. She has been working with elected officials on the federal and state level to address vets using medical marijuana being denied VA benefits and has been involved in organizing veterans to protect to their rights to VA and cannabis benefits.

    Harmini Dominic Bonsignore on Centertainment Radio via Niacom, Sat @ 7pm CST!

    in Christianity

    HARMINI grew up in the projects of Riverview Apartments in Elmira, NY. Both Harmini and his brother  were raised by their mom who was a single parent struggling [with Tourettes Syndrome and] on welfare.


    At age seven, tragedy struck through a molestation by a local stranger who lived in their complex. This would be the beginning of his personal life spiraling in a downward direction that was soon out of control. As he tells it, “at age ten I began using drugs and was addicted and/or using up to 8 drugs for most of my childhood and teen years. When I was 15, our home was raided by the Elmira PD for drug trafficking; a second raid was conducted by Elmira S.W.A.T. when I was 17. For 12 years I ran the streets with thugs, local gang bangers, rappers, drug dealers and users. As the downward spiral of my life continued, it led to jail, then to prison. I ended up on probation four times during my teenage years and was hooked to the ankle bracelet for one year. I was placed in Glove house twice, rehab twice and was also hospitalized more than a dozen times for drug over dose and suicide attempts, having my stomach pumped several times with black charcoal. I was placed in detention homes, drug programs and respite homes numerous times. My repeated delinquent behaviors as a wayward child built me the reputation of an unreachable heathen without hope for change. All of these activities, including the jail and prison terms, occurred before I was 21 years old.” 


    Tune in to hear the rest of Harmini’s story and a powerful deliverance that led to what he is successfully doing today to make an impact on this generation through music, visual arts and outreach! You “really” don’t want to miss this interview on Saturday, February 7, 2015 @ 7pm CST.
