    Jenni James is counsel for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation. Through lawsuits, support for new legislation, and other legal efforts, she pushes authorities to create and enforce local, state, and federal laws designed to help captive animals who are used and abused in theme parks and circuses. Her many victories include keeping a cruel bull run out of California; persuading the Oakland, California, City Council to ban bullhooks (weapons used to beat elephants into performing); and getting Lolita, the lone orca at the Miami Seaquarium, listed as a member of a protected species under the Endangered Species Act. She is also an experienced wildlife rescuer and has helped hundreds of stranded seals, sea lions, otters, and other marine mammals off the coast of California.


    For Immediate Release:

    PETA President Ingrid Newkirk released the following statement in response to reports that Ringling Bros. plans to retire the performing elephants in May: 18 months earlier than announced. Years of living in shackles, held immobile on concrete floors, has left many elephants lame and sick.

    TS Radio: Deborah Goodman/ NY Judge should not be on the bench

    in Current Events

    Hosted by Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer


    Join us this evening as we take a look at another judge in New York that has turned his courtroom into chaos as he forgets his own rulings or even what case he is working on.  Guess who pays the price for that?


    Deborah Goodman has been subject to the bizarre behavior of Judge Victor J. Alfieri Jr., for more than five years with no relief in sight. 


    "For his own Standards and Goals he repeatedly removed my case from the court calendar causing motions to be submitted in order to restore my case, which caused unnecessary legal expenses. On December 20, 2013 Honorable Judge Alfieri made a final decision to close my case because he did not like that the case was three years old. His only concern was my case bringing attention from those above him. He said, on the record:


    “Now without prejudice to either side, I am going to deny that motion. And I’ll tell you why. I’m going to deny it mostly because of a housekeeping detail. The case is three years old, which will bring note of people above me, as I’m only here by virtue of someone’s signature on an order. I’d like to stay. So I’m going to deny the motion to restore it to the calendar; however, I’m going to do that 30 days from today.”


    This was just one of numerous rulings issued by a judge who should not be on the bench.  Unfortunately, its all too common in probate and family courts across the country.

    Voices Carry for Animals #72: Guest- Dahlia Canes -United Against B.S.L.

    in Pets

    Hosted By Debbie Dahmer


    Guest will be: Dahlia Canes - Director and Founder for the Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation


    https://www.facebook.com/MiamiCoalition/timeline


    http://www.unitedagainstbsl.org/


    BSL stands for Breed Specific Legislation. It is a law or laws that ban or severely restrict the ownership of a particular breed. These laws declare an entire breed “dangerous or vicious” based on the actions of a few members of the breed.  Breed specific laws are often a knee-jerk reaction from politicians who want to say they are “doing something” to stop dog bite incidents and fatalities. These changes in laws tend to happen after a highly publicized dog attack takes place. These highly publicized attacks bring about a “perceived” need for more stringent laws governing the restraint of dogs. We all want to prevent dog attacks; however, breed specific laws have proven to be ineffective in the reduction of dog bite incidents. Breed specific laws do not protect communities from fatal dog attacks and/or dog bite injuries.


    “Breed Specific Legislation is an inhumane tool, used to deal with man’s destruction of their own fears. It targets innocent animals, that were not put on this earth to be judged by us.” – Dahlia Canes

    in Pets

    Hosted by Debbie Dahmer


    Guest will be: Robert Margolin- Animal Rights Activist, Screenwritter, Martial Arts Grandmaster, Fitness and Health Guru


    Robert's first real job was working at a Chuck Norris karate studio. Robert's also started writing Martial Arts movies and was in talks to star in one of those movies while training for his fighting debut. Robert was a passenger in a fatal freeway accident that broke his back and left him in a body brace for 2 years. He lost 80 lbs. of lean muscle and at 6 ft. tall Robert was down to 115 lbs. and felt weaker than a newborn kitten. Seven doctors told him he would never be able to do Martial Arts again.


    Finally, Robert's family helped to load him into the car and took me to see Franco Columbu. He cut him out of the body brace and together they started rebuilding his back. The first deadlift he did was measured in inches and ounces. Robert eventually worked up to over 400 lbs. Robert did preacher curls with Hulk Hogan, bench presses with Jake (Body By Jake), and Carl Weathers showed his favorite exercises. Robert's healing journey had begun! His Vegan lifestyle has made him healthier and help others to do the same. Robert educating and spreading awareness throughout.. Being a animal rights activists and helping the animals in need and being a voice for the voiceless.

    Guest will be: Patrick Bohler aka Dogfather- Host on The Pit Bull Advocate on Blog Talk Radio weekly 


    This is the last show of 2015. I want to Thank all of the former guests, callers, and listeners for all of your support in 2015. Couldn't do it without all of you.  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Awesome 2016. 


    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thepitbulladvocate


    In September 2002, Patrick adopted his first Pit Bull. Doing what any dog owner should do, he researched the breed, immersing himself in history, and discovering myths and eventually, breed bias. Battles with property management at his workplace, having the full support of his bodss and co-workers, he won and was able to continue to bring this dog he had named Bean to work every day.


    The following October he founded Sonoma County Residents Responsible About Pit Bulls (SCRRAP). In a press interview Patrick stated "We are a part social, and all advocacy group." The goal was to get other Pit Bull owners together for meetups and walks. SCRRAP was able to help other owners with training and socializing, as well as assisting in finding homes for dogs the were in need. 


    In March of 2012, The Pit Bull Advocate online Blog Talk Radio show was launched. Using the name Dogfather because "It's not about me... Being an Advocate. It was a way to draw attention to other Advocates and to rescue organizations without trying to just go out and make a name for myself.It's about the dogs, and those who are on the front lines every single day fighting for their rights, and for what is right.

    Feb. 9, 2016, 10pm (PST) - The Ghosts of Virginia City with Debbie Bender

    in Paranormal

    Virginia City was a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, and numerous mines were opened. At the city's peak of population in the mid-1870s, it had an estimated 25,000 residents. The mines' output declined after 1878, and the city declined.


     


    However, many in the now historic town say, some of the residents have never left. And as this ghost town has become more of a tourist attraction, one of the attractions the town now offers is ghost tours. Paranormal investigators from all over the world come to the Nevada playground to find who's still hanging out in the saloon or sleeping in the old hotel.


     


    Debbie Bender is part of the team that runs the Virginia City Ghost Tours. The stories and experiences she has from this old mining community are eerie, intriguing and mystifying all at once. You can find them at www.virginiacityghosttours.com. Debi will explain the history of the town from then, until now. We'll talk about who's still wandering around. And how ghost hunting has brought new 'life' to an aged community.

    in Family

    Hosted by Marti Oakley and Debbie Dahmer


    Our guest: Dr. Karin Huffer, Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhatten, New York and medical expert on Legal Abuse Syndrome, and Organizting Committee Member of at  The National Association for Probate Reform and Advocacy (NAPRA) 


    Courts cannot see invisible disabilities unless ADAAA is used.  Too often opposition cruelly and unlawfully accuses those with qualifying disabilities, i.e .PTSD, TBI, depression, of being “crazy” and lying as part of a ploy.  The court does not know UNLESS WE TELL THEM that for access and inclusion the PWD, person with a disability, must invoke rights to privacy, equal access, and safety under the ADAAA federal mandates.


    We will be discussing the application of the ADAA and its application to the abuses in the probate system, and how it applies to those under guardianship. 


    Dr. Huffers website : www.equalaccessadvocates.com


    Events that Damage Public Health


    o Faulty psychological/custody evals 


    o Called  “crazy” & discredited in court


    o Financial and emotional devastation


    o Disability exploited not accommodated in court. 


    o Lies replace fact – leaving you defenseless  


    Dr Huffer has also authored numerous books which we will be discussing also.
