Leigh comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for lymphedema rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.
Leigh was diagnosed at 21 years old with lymphedema/lipedema, PCOS, fibromaylgia, Chronic fatigue syndrome high blood pressure, hypothyroidsm all on the same day. She had gained 230 pounds in one year. After reaching 500 pounds she had gastric bypass surgery, successfully losing 340 pounds in one year. After consulting with Dr Herbst in June 2014 for a "formal" diagnosis of stage 3 lipoedema she has undergone 3 surgeries for lipedema, all reimbursed by BCBS PPO. Additionally she has authorization for 6 total surgeries and 1 tummy apron removal. She is a disabled stay at home mother of 3, hoping to help others in the same situation with a non profit organization and insurance questions/answers.

Alberto R. Gonzales (born August 4, 1955) was the 80th United States Attorney General, appointed in February 2005 by President George W. Bush, becoming the highest-ranking Hispanic in executive government to date. He was the first Hispanic to serve as White House Counsel, and earlier he had been Bush's General Counsel during his governorship of Texas. Gonzales had also served as Secretary of State of Texas and then as a Texas Supreme Court Justice.
Gonzales's tenure as U.S. Attorney General was marked by controversy regarding warrantless surveillance and the legal authorization of so-called "Enhanced interrogation techniques", generally acknowledged as constituting torture. Following bipartisan calls for his removal, Gonzales resigned from the office "in the best interests of the department", on August 27, 2007, effective September 17, 2007. Democrats were particularly opposed to Gonzales for his role in the firings of several U.S. Attorneys which they believed had caused his office to become improperly politicized.

This week on Beyond the Veil, we will be discussing the additions to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (or the #NDAA) and how the new pilot program effectively legalizes the NSA Spy Programs. For those who are not as familiar with the NDAA, we will also give a brief summary of what the bill has done since we first started warning of its dangers in 2011. We will also be looking at further legalization of unconstitutional spying has taken place through the #IAA, or Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015. Join Switchblade and Orlando Phoenix of Anonymous North Texas tonight at 7pm Central.
The lame duck Congress is getting ready to close their doors in Wasington, DC to go home for the Christmas/New Year's Day break. At risk is another "government shut down going inot effect on December 12th.
With the "Executive Order allowing amnesty" be allowed to go into force?
Will a budget be passed?
Will the 2015 Defense Authorization BIll?

Also joining us this morning is Gerald R. Molen, Academy Award Winner and established Hollywood producer of many films including Jurassic Park and Schindler's List. Molen's most recent works include the conservative documentaries 2016: Obama's America followed up by America (2014).
Molen has agreed to join us "In the Pickle Barrel" this morning as we attempt to answer the question, "Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege?
Molen tell's me, "Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world."
Is the "greed culture" in corporate America today out of control causing America to spiral us into economic doom?
Join the discussions this morning at 8AM-10AM EST.
On December 10th, 2014, Congress passed H.R. 4681 – the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY 2015.
House of Representatives Member Justin Amash discovered that a shocking new section was added to the bill. A completely new version of section 309 was inserted the night before by the Senate before being rushed to the House floor for a voice vote the following day.
In Representative Amash’s own words, “Sec. 309 provides a novel statutory basis for the executive branch’s capture and use of Americans’ private communications.” He goes on to say that the legislation is "the most egregious I've encountered."

LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America. On today's show, December 12th, I discuss the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe which is very important to Latinos in America, especially Mexicanos and ethnic Mexicans like myself. I read an article about riders in Illinois who rode to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines and delivered a rose while passing on horseback. I went on to read more news from the Catholic News Service concerning the Synod of the Family and Conscious Rights of Catholics under assault in liberal America both by the Obama administration and the liberal City of Washington DC which enacted similar ordinances as Plano, and Houston, Texas which challenge religious freedom and expression. Later in the show, a caller, Juan Martinez, a former police officer in the Dallas Ft. Worth area called to ask about 287g, a federal program that enables local law enforcement to question person incarcerated to determine if they should be evaluated by immigration enforcement. Martinez wanted to know if that program is still in effect. I reported that as I know it is but in reference to SB 1070 which was largely found to be unconstitutional but also still authorized in vague terms state and local law enforcement to be "assist" immigration and customs authorities. Previously, this was not true as the Supremacy Clause prevented state and local LEO from investigating such matters without 287g authorization. However, since the SB1070 case, states have new authorization and in places like Arizona, they uses it indiscriminately and over zealously. I am very worried about the laws Dan Patrick will pass here in Texas and use it to violate the rights of Latinos here in Texas simply because we may look "foreign." Clearly a violation of the 4th Amendment.
Sounds like "release the Kracken!," doesn't it?; "The federal government’s funding authorization expires tonight at midnight, and the Republican plan to renew it bodes poorly for the GOP’s leadership of Congress next year;" The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA "torture" benefits no one but our enemies and politicians looking to re-litigate previous presidential administrations; U.S. Climate "Fair Share" 82% emissions cut by 2030? Plus $810 billion in climate debt payments annually to poor countries? That ain't happening; Democrats are abandoning all strategic electoral sense along with the South. and, time permitting, today's Morning Jolt.
Defense authorization act .. what's all the fuss about ? detaining citizens indefinitely .. that does sound pretty bad and a bill straight FROM THE PITS OF HELL !!!! I wonder who is the author of that .. just like you need to know that the 2000 page illegal health care bill is based on the Mitt Romney Health care bill ('RomneyCare') .. we need to know who is behind this latest Senate monster beast ..
i thought detention was something you got in high school for acting bad in class/ disrupting class / other students ...
Updates from Donna about school, Reno, etc.
In September 2014, a group of lymphedema advocates converged upon the Capitol Hill to talk to the US House of Represenatives and Senators about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, as well as had a Congressional Hearing to empasize the importance that it means to many lymphedema patients, caregivers, physicians, and more. As a result, we ended up with 4 bipartisan lead sponsors from the House of Represenatives, and 91 cosponsors from many of the States. We really need about 200 cosponsors to help ensure that this Bill passes the House.
Guidance was provided by the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, National Lymphedema Network, and many other supporters of the Bill.
Join us on our Lymphedema Journey and Advocacy for a discussion on a reflection of those this year's journey at Capitol Hill (DC) and a call of action that we would like for you to do as soon as possible.
