A CBS News video interview with crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff explains how he influenced Congress for years, and how this kind of corruption still continues. He explains how he “bought” your Senators and Representatives; how he had Congressional staffers reporting to him instead of to their own bosses!
Drug companies, of course, are the BIGGEST political lobby, and political lobbying is one of the primary reasons why the drug companies are controlling nearly the entire health industry. Lobbyists, by definition, "conduct activities aimed at influencing public officials and especially members of a legislative body on legislation." This is Big Business doing what it does best: using its power and money to manipulate and manage your health in a way that will increase their bottom line.
It has been reported that the pharmaceutical industry spent $1.5 BILLION lobbying Congress in the last decade. We will be sharing information that will demonstrate the use of fear and unconstitutional mandates in an effort to control the American populace
Join your host and townhall moderator Phil Waite for a discussion on how we as citizens can become freedom activists and act as our own citizen's lobbyists. It's K Street versus Main Street!

Our guest tonight is HOWARD LYMAN, who was featured in the documentary "Cowspiracy" and is the author of the books "Mad Cowboy" and "No More Bull." After Howard stated his opinion in warning the public about the risk of Mad Cow disease on the Oprah Winfrey Show in April, 1996,
Until August 1997, cattle were routinely fed the remains of other cows. The Department of Agriculture and the FDA banned the practice, fearing the spread of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), better known as Mad Cow Disease. But it remains legal to feed cows "rendered" -- dead and ground up -- parts of certain animals, including the blood of other cows, despite the fact that this practice may allow deadly illnesses to enter the food chain.
Howard is a 4th generation family farmer (and vegan) from Montana. After 20 years of operating a feed lot, he sold his ranch and started working for farmers in financial trouble. He was a lobbyist in Washington and ran for Congress in 1982. Howard is the former Director of the "Beyond Beef Campaign," past President of both the International Vegetarian Union and EarthSave International, and is currently President of Voice for a Viable Future."

Program Summary: April 25, 2015
@Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast."
In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.
Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."
Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking. On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."
I am bringing power back to our voices via my new show called Mana Talk. Right now we’ve got some crazy-nasty-ass legislators, judiciaries and executives that are swaying and pulling the naïve and easily manipulated in our country in a direction that is not going to last for any of us.
I will be your man in the trenches, on point, and in the epicenter of what’s truly needed to bring our nation and the planet out of the heinous direction it’s heading.
It’s about time that we demand far more sanity, sensibility, and real fairness from all our public servants on behalf of the greater republic (not the 1%/corporations)… And seriously – who’s the public servant?
I will not stop until ridiculous laws and bills like Citizens United (a contravening title), Right to Work (paradoxical phrase), Corporate Person-hood (just sounds wrong), and some new stifling voter suppressing laws and other ass-backward laws and dark-aged bills must be completely dismantled and abolished from the United States. I will do what I can to put the needs of the U.S. republic and this planet as a heartfelt purpose and as a priority, but I can’t do it alone – we’ve all got to take the proper actions.
Please keep in mind that this is my first show, and it may not fly steady on the first go-round. With that being obviouis... I will be very open to brutal corrective criticism by whoever provides it. However, I will also do the same to whomever, if I deem fit.
So, please join my blogtalk every Tuesday and Thursday night at 9PM PST!
Mahalo nui loa,
P.S: Mana = Power
Campaign staff drove "ordinary" Iowans to Hillary's first campaign stop, including health care 'lobbyist in training' who was an Obama campaign intern and Biden chauffeur; Hillary’s "Mystery Machine" caught parked in handicapped spot; Three of Hillary's "immigrant" grandparents were born in such exotic foreign locales as...Scranton; We deserve Hillary’s bloodless, condescending campaign; Hillary’s attempt at an Elizabeth Warren impression isn’t going well; All hail Hillary Milhouse Clinton; No, Hillary Clinton is NOT "inevitable" - unless she has the "courage" to "come out of the closet".
When Congresses main income did not come from Lobbyist or fundraising activites, perhaps loyalty to American Citizens came easier. While Main Street has been sleeping or convinced they too could become a part of the 1% by the many dangling carrots before them, basic Civil Rights have been tossed by the wayside, this includes protections for those injured in car accidents. Join me, ESTRA in talking about how Insurance, Banking, and Finance are having the effect of eliminating payment to Policyholders on claims.

On this week's edition of NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, host James Dick, a regular contributor to the Conservative Report and blogger through his own web site, North Florida Writer, northfloridawriter.com will lead a discussion of the plight of small rural landowners facing the pressure of development in rural North Florida. The show should be of benefit to all who love the rural lifestyle as the American landscape is under threat of urbanization from sea to shining sea. James will be joined by two landowners in the middle of the struggle for retention of their lifestyle, one a retired NCIS agent and the other a housewife, turned activist, when she realized after she had raised her family that the environment she loved and in which she had lived her entire life was collapsing around her, Topics will include:
PROPERTY RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
THE IMPACT OF LOBBYISTS ON THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS
ACTION STEPS WHICH CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL
Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or somewhere in between, if you live in, or want to maintain a reasonable rural presence in America, this show has something for you. After all, do we really need another strip mall or postage stamp lot development at every bend on the country road?
