Senate To Vote Cloture on S.510, (HHS & FDA Food Control Bill) On Wed.

Senate To Vote Cloture on S.510, (HHS & FDA Food Control Bill) On Wed.

Time to call the Senate about S.510; FDA Food Safety Modernization Act

The District of Criminals is back in session with Progressive Harry Reid leading the charge to turn over the safety of your food supply chain to Kathleen Sebelius and subsequent Secretaries of HHS.  Yes, control of everything you wish to feed your family is going to be overseen by the very same federal government that believes that allowing DHS to move live ‘ hoof and mouth’ virus (among a plethora of zoonotic viruses) to ‘Tornado Alley’ in the center of cattle country, Manhattan, Kansas is a completely safe and strategic move.  They also think Obamacare is going to cover every single American and lower costs at the same time, and that the new Federal Reserve Office of Financial Research needs to keep track of your every financial transaction.  How about those micro-chipped meds from Novartis, or those pornographic full body scanners that DHS is imposing with a $10,000 fine and which are being pimped by lobbyists?  Anybody seeing the pattern here yet?

Time to put both chambers back on speed dial once again and remind them who is in charge.  Even I know that crashing their phone systems, YET AGAIN, will not get them to read the bills, but it may actually get them to answer the phone and vote against another fascist spending bill.  There are two reasons this bill did not get shoved through before the lame duck session, 1.) the Dodd-Frank Financial Fascism Bill, 2.) Sen. Tom Coburn objected to spending $1.4 Billion on the Fed’s credit card.

Here’s the scoop about the procedural vote scheduled for Wednesday.

Harry Reid is calling for a cloture vote to end debate over S. 510, FDA Food Safety Modernization Act; text of the bill here.

cloture – The only procedure by which the Senate can vote to place a time limit on consideration of a bill or other matter, and thereby overcome a filibuster. Under the cloture rule (Rule XXII), the Senate may limit consideration of a pending matter to 30 additional hours, but only by vote of three-fifths of the full Senate, normally 60 votes.

From TheHill.com on Sunday:

Long wait for food safety bill may be over

Almost a year to the day after a unanimous committee vote, a long-stalled bill to promote food safety is poised for Senate passage within a week.

The bill by Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) passed the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee on Nov. 18, 2009, with a 16-0 bipartisan vote. It had already passed the House in July 2009 on a 283-142 vote.

But it was then forced onto the Senate’s back burner while the upper chamber grappled for most of this year with healthcare reform and financial regulation reform. Now, with the midterm elections in the past, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to bring it forward for a procedural vote on Wednesday that leaders expect will pass.

For those that don’t know about food fascism, here are the crib notes:

TSA Full Body Scanners: Where The Money Is Going

Listen up MOOS!  You are a revenue stream one way or another.  If they cannot get your money using the Federal Reserve, QE and inflation, and the IRS right out in the open, they get it using District of Criminals’ appropriation bills.

The Washington Examiner nailed the story of the where the $338 Million behind the TSA full body scanners went, with names readers are going to recognize.   Among many DC lobbyist leeches, the names of Michael Chertoff, George Soros, and Chad Wolff who happens to be a former aide to Kay Bailey Hutchinson (Ranking Member of the Senate committee that has called for a TSA oversight  hearing on the 17th) appear.  (Yeah!  The hearing on Wednesday is really going to accomplish something, doncha feel it?  Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooo……………)

‘Naked scanners’: Lobbyists join the war on terror

If you’ve seen one of these scanners at an airport, there’s a good chance it was made by L-3 Communications, a major contractor with the Department of Homeland Security. L-3 employs three different lobbying firms including Park Strategies, where former Sen. Al D’Amato, R-N.Y., plumps on the company’s behalf. Back in 1989, President George H.W. Bush appointed D’Amato to the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism following the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. Also on Park’s L-3 account is former Appropriations staffer Kraig Siracuse.

The scanner contract, issued four days after the Christmas Day bomb attempt last year, is worth $165 million to L-3.

Rapiscan got the other naked-scanner contract from the TSA, worth $173 million. Rapiscan’s lobbyists include Susan Carr, a former senior legislative aide to Rep. David Price, D-N.C., chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee. When Defense Daily reported on Price’s appropriations bill last winter, the publication noted “Price likes the budget for its emphasis on filling gaps in aviation security, in particular the whole body imaging systems.”

An early TSA contractor for full-body scanners was the American Science and Engineering company. AS&E’s lobbying team is impressive, including Tom Blank, a former deputy administrator for the TSA. Fellow AS&E lobbyist Chad Wolf was an assistant administrator at TSA and an aide to Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who sits on the Transportation and Defense subcommittees of Appropriations. Finally, Democratic former Rep. Bud Cramer is also an AS&E lobbyist — he sat on the Defense and Transportation subcommittees of the Appropriations Committee.

Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary flacking for nudie-scanners, too

The companies that make the airport nudie-scanners have high-priced lobbying teams that include former congressmen, top Capitol Hill staff, and former TSA brass, as I reported in my column yesterday.

But because I focussed on registered lobbyists, I left out the highest-profile revolving-door character in the pay of the nudie-scanner industry: George W. Bush’s Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. After the undie-bomber attempt on Christmas 2009, Chertoff went on a media tour promoting the use of these scanners, without disclosing that he was getting paid by Rapiscan, one of the two companies currently contracted by TSA to take a nude picture of you at the airport.

George Soros also profiting off controversial new TSA scanners

Then this morning Carney also noted that former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff was flacking for Rapiscan.

As for the company’s other political connections, it also appears that none other than George Soros, the billionaire funder of the country’s liberal political infrastructure, owns 11,300 shares of OSI Systems Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan. Not surprisingly, OSI’s stock has appreciated considerably over the course of the year. Soros certainly is a savvy investor.

There aren’t any criminals, double-dealing, or insider trading happening inside the District of Criminals. Move along now, nothing to see here.

Big Pharma To Start Microchipping The Moos

Big Pharma To Start Microchipping The Moos

(Editor’s Note: I read about this about a week ago but have been a bit under the weather; now it’s time to catch up.)


MESSAGE FOR THE MOOS:

Get ready for the newest assault on privacy and American values as we jump from TSA nude body scanners, genital groping and $10,000 fines for non-compliance  with TSA to Big Pharma once again doing something because they can without regard for whether they should.

When one takes the human interaction of looking somebody in the eye out of the equation, incredibly sophisticated and evil shit happens as microchips in your medications transmit data (unencrypted), can be used to track you and whether or not you are taking your meds, effect your chances of new employment, and trigger TSA violations.

I am feeling a big fat can of whoop ass coming towards Big Pharma as newly awakened Americans push for more natural remedies.

Many thanks to NaturalNews for an excellent article:

Big Pharma to begin microchipping drugs

(NaturalNews) The age of pharmaceutical microchipping is now upon us. Novartis AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world, has announced a plan to begin embedding microchips in medications to create “smart pill” technology.

The microchip technology is being licensed from Proteus Biomedical of Redwood City, California. Once activated by stomach acid, the embedded microchip begins sensing its environment and broadcasting data to a receiver worn by the patient. This receiver is also a transmitter that can send the data over the internet to a doctor.

The idea behind all this is to create “smart pills” that can sense what’s happening in the body and deliver that information to the patient’s doctor. Novartis plans to start microchipping its organ transplant anti-rejection drugs and then potentially expand microchipping to other pharmaceuticals in its product lineup. This same technology could soon end up in pills made by other drug companies, too.

The best laid plans…

It all sounds good on the surface, but NaturalNews readers no doubt have lots of skeptical questions about this technology. For starters, Novartis apparently isn’t planning on conducting any clinical trials that might take into account the safety issues of swallowing microchips. “Novartis does not expect to have to conduct full-scale clinical trials to prove the new products work,” reports Reuters. “Instead, it aims to do so-called bioequivalence tests to show they are the same as the original.” (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUS…)

But I have a question: What chemicals or heavy metals are contained in the microchip itself? A microchip that transmits data obviously must have a power source, meaning it needs to have a very small battery or capacitor of some sort. The materials used in capacitors and batteries, to my knowledge, are toxic to the human body and should never be eaten.

Microchips are not food, and to swallow them seems risky to your health, especially if you’re swallowing several microchips per day.

Data privacy

Another huge concern with microchips that transmit data is data privacy. If these microchips are broadcasting information, then obviously that information can be picked up by anything nearby, including potentially unscrupulous individuals or organizations who might put it to a nefarious use.

For example, suppose a local pharmacy store installs a microchip signal detector in their main door entrance in order to track people who are broadcasting medication data. They could then theoretically decode that data and use it to determine what health condition that customer might be suffering and then push competing generic pharmaceuticals as a replacement.

Government agents could carry “pharma microchip scanners” that determine what pills you’re taking right now. This could be used to violate your privacy by sharing that data with other government agencies or it could even be sold off to third-party marketing companies.

I very much doubt the data being broadcast by the microchips in these pills will be encrypted because encryption requires real processing power, and there isn’t room for much of a CPU or power source inside these tiny microchips. Most likely, they are going to broadcast raw signal data that can be detected and decoded quite easily.

Remember to take your meds

But the really scary part about these microchipped medications is that this technology will be used to make sure people are taking their medication. Drug companies lose billions of dollars a year (in their minds) from patients not remembering to take their pills. Of course, half the reason they can’t remember to take their pills is because many pharmaceuticals damage cognitive function, but that’s another story.

So this smart-pill microchip technology will likely be used to track what pills patients have taken so that they can be “gently reminded” to take more pills they may have forgotten. In the marketing business, this is called a “continuity program.” It’s a way to make sure repeat sales happen on a regular basis.

In this context, microchipping the pills benefits the drug companies, not necessarily the patients. This is especially true when considering those pharmaceuticals that are harmful to human health — and we all know the pharmaceutical market is full of pills that have later been found to be extremely dangerous or even deadly (Vioxx, anyone?).

Coming soon: Police drug scanners and employer drug scanners

Now, there may be one interesting side effect to all this: Employers who are interviewing potential job candidates might be able to buy (or make) simple drug scanning devices that detect the presence of a pharmaceutical microchip broadcast signal. (You could probably make one in your garage from electronic parts purchased at Radio Shack.)

This might be very useful for employers who don’t want to hire people taking medications. They invite you in for an interview and quietly scan for drug broadcast data. A red light tells them you’re broadcasting medication data, and they calmly tell you the interview is over and “we’ll get back to you.”

With employers right now drowning in health insurance costs, this could provide a simple, easy way for corporations to avoid taking on anyone who might create a cost burden on their health insurance plans (from their point of view). I don’t necessarily agree with this use of the technology; I’m just saying this is one way in which it is likely to be used by employers to screen out employees who are on medications.

Cops, too, could use a similar scanning device to determine if a driver at the scene of an accident might be medication impaired. Now this is a use I actually do agree with. Today’s roadways are filled with mentally impaired drivers who are doped up on medications. The problem is actually far worse than drunk drivers, by the way, and yet virtually nothing is being done to combat this problem of “medicated drivers.” (Most people don’t even know the problem exists.)

If people taking medications are broadcasting that fact through all the little microchips they swallow, then scanning for the presence of medications is simple. It’s even easier than a breathalyzer test because it requires no action on the part of the test subject. The cop just presses a button, waits two seconds, and can then determine whether you’re broadcasting medication data. At that point, you might be arrested under suspicion of “driving while medicated.”

Another reason not to take meds

There are clearly a lot of unanswered questions and even some potential risks involved in taking microchipped pharmaceuticals. For some people, privacy issues may be the biggest factor of all, because who wants to broadcast the fact that they’re taking meds in the first place?

I don’t take any pharmaceuticals, obviously, and most NaturalNews readers avoid them, too. The fact that drugs will soon be microchipped is yet another good reason to find more holistic ways to take care of your health. Don’t bet your life (and your privacy) on Big Pharma’s pills. Choose a healthy, holistic lifestyle based on nutritious, organic foods, regular exercise and the avoidance of all man-made (synthetic) chemicals, and you most likely won’t ever need pharmaceuticals for your entire life.

The age of microchipping people and microchipping medications is now upon us. Given what the TSA is doing right now with naked body scanners (http://www.naturalnews.com/030100_n…), you can only imagine what Big Brother will do with any medication data you might be broadcasting from inside your body.

In fact, the very idea that there is a microchip inside your body that’s broadcasting data might get you flagged as a possible terrorist by the TSA, which would then proceed to finger your genitals and palm your breasts as part of their new “enhanced pat-down” groping technique. (http://www.naturalnews.com/030302_T…)

The best way to avoid all this risk is to simply eat your veggies and drink your superfoods. Don’t become a trackable, traceable, microchipped subject of the medical industry that wants to turn your body into a chemical profit center.

The Senate CST Committee has called a hearing on Wednesday, 17th to take a peek at the oversight of TSA.  Considering John D. Rockefeller is the chairman, don’t expect too much…

Transportation Security Administration Oversight Hearing

Jena Longo – Democratic Deputy Communications Director (202) 224-8374

Nov 17 2010 10:00 AM

Russell Senate Office Building – 253

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation announces the following full committee hearing on Transportation Security Administration oversight.


(Any minute now there will be a ban on video cameras everywhere the Gestapo operates….)

When John Tyner refused the full body scan, he was informed by a TSA gestapo agent that during his full body pat down his groin area was going to be checked which prompted his statement, “if you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested”.

Mr. Tyner does not plan to fly anymore and believes that more people are taking the same route that he is by traveling by car, bus or train.  It also appears that Mr. Tyner was just trying to leave the airport and was not traveling that day.

There were a few people standing around the ticketing area as I tried to leave.  Those men told me that I had to go back into the screening area to finish the screening, and I refused.  I told them, I’ve already…I don’t have a ticket, I’m not going to be flying today, I’m trying to leave the airport, and I’m not going to be screened as a condition of going on my way and leaving.

If You Touch My Junk, I’ll Have You Arrested

UPDATE #1:

It appears that TSA is going to fine Mr. Tyner $10,000 for not submitting to their screening. Here’s the full story from PeoplesVoice.org:

TSA promises $10,000 fine for refusing sexual assault

At the San Diego International Airport yesterday, about one-fifth of the travelers were selected for sexual assault by transportation security agents. Though TSA’s website did not list SAN as one of the airports employing the carcinogenic naked scan or a full body rub down, one man was told his refusal to submit would result in a civil law suit and a $10,000 fine. Under 49 CFR Sec.s 1540.105 and 1540.107, as summarized in these 2004 TSA Sanction Guidelines, apparently TSA has Congressional support to fine people for refusing to submit to molestation.

John Tyner posted his video of the incident and described in detail the experience. At about 3:50 into the first video, Tyner tells TSA agents:

“If you touch my junk, I’m gonna have you arrested.”

“Upon buying your ticket, you gave up a lot of your rights,” said one TSA agent (~8:34).

“The government took them away after 9/11,” he countered.

His father-in-law tried to convince the agents to allow him to be screened by the metal detector since he has an aversion to the x-ray machine and to having his genitals touched by strangers.

“We have our procedures, Sir.”

Agents then filled out a report of the incident, taking down his name and other details. (Second video)

Transportation Security Manager David Silva told agents to have Tyner escorted from the airport. But after his ticket was refunded, he was again detained by security personnel who continued to question him.

In the third video, Tyner’s camera caught the agents on film as they huddled some distance off from him. Here’s where Orwell rises from the dead. In the third video, we see one of the suits using doublespeak:

“For your benefit, can I get a contact number?”

“For my benefit?”

“Yes, Sir.”

“I think we’re done.”

“Actually, Sir …”

“My benefit has been achieved.”

“No, Sir, I’m trying – I’m trying to get you, give you some mitigating factors, in your – in your favor. Cooperation is one of those mitigating factors.”

“I’m sorry, what mitigating, mitigating what?”

“Remember the, remember the civil penalties I told you you could be subject to for failing to …”

“So are you going to subject him and this officer and the four TSA members who escorted me out to those same penalties?”

“No, Sir, I’m not.”

“They directed me to break the law and they escorted me out and told me my only choice was to leave the airport.”

“Tyner? Was that the name?”

“I think you’ve got a record of it back there. All my pertinent information is on the record you took.”

“I’m just trying to get the right to call you by your name. That’s what –”

“My name is John.”

Tyner then demands to leave while the suit continues to seek his cooperation.

“To what end?” John asked.

“To the end, to the end, to the end that it will look better for you when we bring the case against you that we’re going to bring, okay, if you cooperate.”

“You bring that case,” Tyner said, then walking out of the airport.

At the TSA website, at its Tips for the Screening Process page, TSA warns people:

“If a personal search is required you may choose to remain in the public area or go to a private area for your screening. If you refuse either option you will not be able to fly.”

It does not tell them they will be fined $10,000 for refusing both options.

Guess who ordered nude body scanners
Attorney with multiple constitutional claims confirms orders come straight from the top

Editor’s Note: Some of the links in this report lead to graphic images that have been taken from current airport security scanning procedures. Use caution in viewing the links.

A constitutional attorney preparing to legally challenge the Transportation Security Administration’s enhanced screening procedures – which reveal a virtually nude image of passengers – says airline passengers have Barack Obama to thank for the process.

“Legislation has been proposed to mandate full-body scanners and make them the primary screening method in all U.S. airports by 2013, but Congress has yet to act on it,” John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, wrote in a new commentary.

“So we can thank President Obama for this frontal assault on our Fourth Amendment rights. Mind you, this is the same man who insisted that ‘we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values that we cherish as Americans,'” Whitehead said.

Sign onto the petition demanding the suspension of the privacy-invading scans and pat-downs.

“Yet in the wake of the bumbling underwear bomber’s botched Christmas Day attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound plane, Obama directed the Homeland Security Department ‘to acquire $1 billion in advanced-technology equipment, including body scanners, for screening passengers,'” he continued.

New Office Of Financial Stability Established By The Fed

This is the beginning bureaucratic implementation of the disastrous Dodd-Frank FinReg Law that needs to be repealed right behind Obamacare.  For those that don’t realize one of the more fascist aspects of this law and the Office of Financial Research, please read Big Brother’s Lock On Your Money Is Complete.

Fed Creates Office To Implement Dodd-Frank Overhaul Law

WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)–The Federal Reserve is creating an office to implement legislation overhauling the U.S. financial regulation system.

The Fed on Thursday announced it established the Office of Financial Stability Policy and Research. J. Nellie Liang, a Fed economist, was named as its director.

The office will bring together economists, banking supervisors, and markets experts to focus on financial stability. It will coordinate Fed staff efforts to identify and analyze potential risks to the financial system and the overall economy.

“The financial stability team will play an important role in implementing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, in our oversight of systemically important financial institutions, and in our overall surveillance of the financial markets and the economy,” Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said in a news release.

The Dodd-Frank law was passed by Congress last summer, a response to widespread calls for changes in the regulatory system after the U.S. financial crisis erupted.

From Federal Reserve Board of Governors

Release Date: November 4, 2010

For immediate release

The Federal Reserve Board on Thursday established the Office of Financial Stability Policy and Research and appointed Board economist J. Nellie Liang as its director.

The office will bring together economists, banking supervisors, markets experts, and others in the Federal Reserve who will be dedicated to supporting the Board’s financial stability responsibilities. The office will develop and coordinate staff efforts to identify and analyze potential risks to the financial system and the broader economy, including through the monitoring of asset prices, leverage, financial flows, and other market risk indicators; follow developments at key institutions; and analyze policies to promote financial stability. It will also support the supervision of large financial institutions and the Board’s participation on the Financial Stability Oversight Council.

“The Office of Financial Stability Policy and Research brings together a skilled group of people with a wide range of expertise to focus solely on financial stability,” Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said. “The financial stability team will play an important role in implementing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, in our oversight of systemically important financial institutions, and in our overall surveillance of the financial markets and the economy. I am pleased that such a strong economist and leader as Nellie is leading this group.”

Liang joined the Board in 1986, acting most recently as a senior associate director in the Division of Research and Statistics. In that role, she has led a group of economists focused on the intersection of economics and finance, including oversight of capital markets, financial institutions, consumer finance, and financial flows. Liang was a key participant in crafting the Federal Reserve’s response to the financial crisis and helped lead the Supervisory Capital Assessment Program, or bank stress tests, which helped increase public confidence in the banking system in 2009. Liang has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Maryland and an undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Notre Dame.

And just for fun, I found this for you to peruse as I am still digging for information on J. Nellie Liang.  I cannot even find a picture of this person on the Fed’s site.

Juan Williams Signs New Multi-Year Deal with Fox News Channel

NPR Fires Juan Williams; Fox News Expands His Role

In making the announcement, Ailes said, “Juan has been a staunch defender of liberal viewpoints since his tenure began at Fox News in 1997. He’s an honest man whose freedom of speech is protected by Fox News on a daily basis.”

Also, today Glenn Beck announced on his television program that George Soros contributed $1.9 (Editors Note: My typo) $1.8 Million to NPR. Check out NPR’s memo at the bottom of this post.


What Would These Guys Have Done? (Oh, excuse me! What DID THESE GUYS DO?)

A few thoughts about the firing of Juan Williams by NPR because he spoke his truth and committed the sin of exercising his God-given right to free speech in the America infiltrated by progressive ‘know-it-alls‘.

  1. I’m not a big fan of Juan Williams but I will defend to the death his right to exercise his right to free speech.
  2. A close friend from Nigeria who fled that country because he was a christian used to tell me on almost a daily basis, “if you speak the truth, you are considered rude.”
  3. This isn’t so much about trying to shut down FoxNews and make people shy away from appearing on the cable news station, this is more about the CONTINUED ‘Chilling Of Free Speech’ in this country when it comes to anything the globalists don’t want interfering with their agenda. (Like Americans who have independent thought, action, and who exercise all of their freedoms.)
  4. This entire situation is just more fodder for the Dems and the administration to wave the left hand vigorously and distract you while they bitchslap you with the right.  What are Wall Street and those federal economic agencies doing today?  What’s happening with Fraudclosure or the value of the dollar? Oh that’s right, Fannie and Freddie need another bailout.
  5. NPR may have just broken the camel’s back; which is what always happens when you push good people too far – they let you know what they think!
  6. Do you think that Juan Williams will have a David Horowitz moment now?
  7. Are you as sick of the multiculturalism as I am?  What are you first and foremost; an American or something else?

Juan Williams’ response to his firing by NPR:

According to Vivian Shiller , ‘this action was not anti-Fox’.  I am calling bull**** on that statement, although the ‘anti-Fox’ aspect is only one agenda of many that the left thinks they are going to advance by firing Juan Williams.

RAW DATA: NPR Internal Memo on Juan Williams

The following is an internal memo sent on behalf of NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller:

Dear AREPS,

Thank you for all of your varying feedback on the Juan Williams situation. Let me offer some further clarification about why we terminated his contract early.

First, a critical distinction has been lost in this debate. NPR News analysts have a distinctive role and set of responsibilities. This is a very different role than that of a commentator or columnist. News analysts may not take personal public positions on controversial issues; doing so undermines their credibility as analysts, and that’s what’s happened in this situation. As you all well know, we offer views of all kinds on your air every day, but those views are expressed by those we interview – not our reporters and analysts.

Second, this isn’t the first time we have had serious concerns about some of Juan’s public comments. Despite many conversations and warnings over the years, Juan has continued to violate this principal.

Third, these specific comments (and others made in the past), are inconsistent with NPR’s ethics code, which applies to all journalists (including contracted analysts):

“In appearing on TV or other media . . . NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist. They should not participate in shows . . . that encourage punditry and speculation rather than fact-based analysis.”

More fundamentally, “In appearing on TV or other media including electronic Web-based forums, NPR journalists should not express views they would not air in their role as an NPR journalist.”

Unfortunately, Juan’s comments on Fox violated our standards as well as our values and offended many in doing so.

Here is the truth:

We’re profoundly sorry that this happened during fundraising week. Juan’s comments were made Monday night and we did not feel it would be responsible to delay this action.

This was a tough decision and we appreciate your support.

Thanks,

Vivian
