Amicus briefs filed supporting Marcy Winograd in California Freedom of Speech case

Marcy Winograd freedom of speech tawni angel, don chomiak, california, pony rides, inhumane, cruel

Two organizations filed amicus briefs supporting Marcy Winograd in her freedom of speech case.

"I was proud to learn this week that the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and the Animal Legal Defense Fund filed amicus “friend of the court” briefs (Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press Amicus Brief Filed 12-21-15 and ALDF Brief Filed Dec. 21, 2015) to support my free speech and right to petition case now before the California Court of Appeal. The case stems from a controversy swirling around a pony ride and zoo that once operated at the Santa Monica Main Street Farmers, a few blocks from my home. In September 2014, the Santa Monica City Council voted to give preference to non-animal vendors after hearing heartfelt complaints about the sad and disturbing nature of the exhibits.

Following the vote, animal vendors Tawni Angel and Jason Nester filed a lawsuit against me, the author of a petition now signed by over 2300 people, calling for the closure of the pony ride and zoo."

I fully support Marcy Winograd and her case. Based on the law and evidence Marcy Winograd should win this case.

I was involved in a similar case in Texas which I also appealed. The appeals court reversed most of the claims except one claim of defamation in my case. In my case the government agency agreed it was animal cruelty. The USDA stated the Plaintiff caused animals "pain, suffering and death." It was not reversed because of Texas judicial corruption. In my case the Plaintiff's attorney bragged in court that he'd known the Judge for many years and he'll sign anything he puts in front of him. The Judge and his friends did exactly that. I'm still battling that case in Texas.

Horrible click bait writer returns dog to breeder because she didn't train it - Lisa Rabasca Roepe, Wayne Roepe, Yahoo Parenting

lisa rabasca roepe, yahoo parenting, wayne roepe, arlington, virginia, write, she knows, av club, arlington strategy, dog breeder, returned, crate, bark, house train, trainer, eevee
When I read the title I instantly saw it was a click bait writer. A click bait writer writes a title with the sole intention to get the most eyes on the article for ad revenue. It can be something amazing or something totally wretched like her title "Why we returned our adorable puppy to the breeder." Generally if you read the article that's not what really happens. In this case unfortunately it was what actually happened and then some.

Lisa Roepe bought a puppy at a breeder. She brought it home and instantly the puppy had separation anxiety as all puppies do. The puppy would incessantly bark for attention, food and to be let out of its crate. The puppy also had accidents. This is normal puppy behavior.

Any sane person knows that you must train all puppies. Puppies don't shoot out of their mother knowing exactly when and where you want them to poop or that you hate barking. Barking is a dog communicating with you. The dog is telling you it needs something. If you don't understand what your dog needs, you should contact a trainer.

I have crate trained, house trained ... many dogs. It's a very simple procedure. With puppies they will have to go potty more often than adults. You take them out every hour in the beginning. If you crate train, you put them in there after they've pee'd, pooped right before you or the puppy go to bed. Instantly in the morning you take the puppy out to pee, poo. Soon they learn they should pee outside and you will take them outside every couple of hours.

After reading the article I thought maybe this writer is taking the click bait one step farther. Some people such as Dear Abby will intentionally write a horrible article so many people will share and comment on it so they can get more traffic for ad revenue. I thought Lisa will write another article next week saying that's not what she meant, she's sorry, she learned her lesson. That is not what is happening in this case. Lisa is actually a horrible and clueless person.

Based on this photo I found in Lisa's facebook page she allowed, forced her puppy to pee many times in its crate and never cleaned it up. The purpose of a crate is to help potty train and to give them a safe place to sleep. I only see soiled newspaper in the crate. The crate should only have enough room for a bed so they will not pee or poo in there. They don't want to poop where they sleep. No wonder the puppy didn't want to go in there. Plain newspaper training is a different process.



UPDATE: She just removed the pic of her kid with the puppy and posted a pic of her dead dog.

Normally I don't post photos with children in it. I did this time because the writer herself posted a photo of her kid with the puppy. I believe she posted this pic to make the article even sadder. She didn't just disappoint the dog but also her daughter. She set the worst example for her kid. She also set her kid up to be ridiculed at school because of her mother's crappy behavior.

Lisa has shut down her Twitter feed, locked up some of her profiles within the last six hours. I bet she is already getting lots of hate mail. She has ruined her reputation and the reputation of her business and employers with her article. I saved copies of all the pages. This woman is really as bad as the title of her article. She should never have pets again.

Lisa Rabasca Roepe a writer for Yahoo Parenting, She Knows, AV Club and her business consulting company Arlington Strategy in Arlington, Virginia. She states in her LinkedIn profile "I am a full-time freelance writer with a broad background in writing, editing and copyediting on a wide variety of topics and in multiple formats, including print, digital, video scripts, ebooks and social media. I have written for Hearst Digital (Women’s Day, Redbook and Good Housekeeping), The Mid, Mommyish, Paste, The Washington Post, Men's Journal and Yahoo Parenting. I am equally adept at pitching ideas and taking assignments.

I provide branded content to Avalara, as well as the clients of Foxtail Marketing and Arlington Strategy. I am a part-time senior communications strategist at Arlington Strategy. I have extensive experience in strategic communications and outreach, stakeholder engagement, brand identity, message development and client collaboration. I have developed and executed outreach and communications programs for the government as well as the public and private sector, leading campaigns that integrate print, digital content, webinars, videos and social media."

People should only hire this woman if they want to destroy their image, reputation and business. She clearly has a major lack of judgment.

Here is her public contact information if you'd like to contact her. info@arlingtonstrategy.com, 703-304-0465, 3801 27th Street N. Arlington, VA 22207 Her husband works/worked for the EPA.

Here is some more nasty click bait articles she wrote. This one is "I was embarrassed of my child." Her kid should be embarrassed by her mother's horrible behavior. This is a nasty thing to publicly state about your 13 year old kid. This woman is just plain mean. Other titles are "I refuse to help my kid with her homework," "I let my kid eat junk food." I hope the kid grows up to be a writer and writes articles such as "I had the worst mother in the world," "What it was like to be raised by a cruel bitch."

* The video is not 100% what actually happened. Some scenes had to be rearranged due to time constraints. Some were reenacted for the same reasons. Sound effects were added in some of the edited parts.

 LOS ANGELES, July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In Animal Planet's new series BEVERLY
 HILLS VET, Katrina Warren, the dynamic Australian veterinarian and expert in
 animal behavior, lands in Beverly Hills to take viewers on a whirlwind trip
 around Los Angeles where she prescribes cures for animals with unimaginable
 oddities and meets their equally eccentric families.  The biggest challenge
 Katrina faces is figuring out if some pets' real problem is the one they can't
 shake ... their owners.  Viewers learn how Katrina Warren diagnoses these
 animal anomalies and if their commanders will obey when she comes to the L.A.
 area's rescue in the world premiere of BEVERLY HILLS VET on September 2, 2003
 from 8-9 p.m. (ET).

     Throughout the series' episodes, Katrina analyzes a parrot that hates his
 new owner so much that he uses four-letter words to tell her so and an alpaca
 that can't seem to stop banging his head on the wall.  She treats "Bitey," the
 snake, who lives up to his name and the pampering couple living with "Ribbet,"
 the 200-pound pig that needs to visit "Little Orphan Hammies," his favorite
 pig camp more often to help him leave is brutish home behavior behind.
 Katrina even uses hidden video to spy on a schnauzer that raids the
 refrigerator when no ones around to catch him in the act!

     Soon after her arrival in California, Katrina is not only faced with the
 difficulties of moving to a new place with quite different and unusual people,
 but is also confronted with correcting the weird behaviors of exotic pets
 she's never seen in her Australian homeland.  Katrina is so determined to
 offer owners every possible solution to their pet's problems that she ends up
 making many human friends along the way.  She finds specialists across Los
 Angeles, who lend their advice to help her make the best diagnosis.  For
 example, she meets Ian, the herpetologist who really knows his way around a
 snake; and Susie, the pig expert from "Little Orphan Hammies" -- where pigs
 without a home find refuge.  All in all, Katrina's just the woman to make
 people and their pets happier together.

     BEVERLY HILLS VET is produced for Animal Planet by Fox TV Studios in
 association with Painless Productions.  For Fox TV Studios, David Martin is
 executive producer.  For Painless Productions, Jim Casey and Joe Carolei are
 executive producers, Katrina Warren is co-executive producer and Jacqueline
 Bender is supervising producer.  For Animal Planet, Jeanie Vink is executive
 producer and Kelly Lueschow is associate producer.

     Animal Planet, available in more than 81 million homes nationwide, is the
 only television network dedicated exclusively to the connection between humans
 and animals.  The network's original programming brings together people of all
 ages by tapping into a fundamental fascination with animals and providing an
 entertaining mix of programming including original movies, adventure series,
 sports, drama and sitcoms.  Discovery Networks, U.S., a unit of Discovery
 Communications, Inc., operates and manages the Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal
 Planet, the Travel Channel, Discovery Health Channel, Discovery Kids, and a
 family of newer, targeted channels.  The unit also distributes BBC America.

It's a crime to state your animal is "Service Animal" when it's not - Mary Cummins California

California, service animal, penal code, 365.7, fraudulent representation, ada, americans with disabilities act, fine, jail, crime, 
I saw this sign in a Ralphs supermarket. They had problems with people passing off regular animals as legal certified "service animals." The problem is service animals are highly trained to be calm and assist their disabled handler. Some people just want to be able to bring their dog in the store. They lie and claim the animal is a "service animal" or "therapy animal" so they can bring them in the store. In the past some of these dogs attacked others in the store. The stores of course don't want to be liable for irresponsible owners and their dogs.

GUIDE DOG—FRAUDULENT REPRESENTATION AS MISDEMEANOR

CA PENAL CODE SECTION 365.7

"[a] Any person who, knowingly and fraudulently represents himself or herself, through verbal or written notice, to be the owner or trainer of any canine licensed as, to be qualified as, or identified as, a guide, signal, or service dog, as defined in subdivisions (d), (e), and (f) of Section 365.5 and paragraph (6) of subdivision (b) of Section 54.1 of the Civil Code, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six months, by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment.

[b] As used in this section, "owner" means any person who owns a guide, signal, or service dog, or who is authorized by the owner to use the guide, signal, or service dog. Leg.H 1994 ch.1257."

This great article by Merritt Clifton goes into the difference between "service dog" and "therapy dog." It also mentions infamous fake "service dog" Mimi the pitbull who attacked many people including a pregnant woman and her baby. Mimi the fake "service dog" pitbull owned by Steven Woods then even faker "disable military veteran" was represented by no other than infamous "animal rights" attorney Randy Turner of Fort Worth, Texas.

Emu rescue by Mary Cummins of Animal Advocates

Emu rescue by Mary Cummins of Animal Advocate
emu, ostrich, mary cummins, animal advocates, los angeles, california, rescue, save, wildlife, rehabilitation, real estate


An emu ranch closed down and one emu escaped. He made his way to the neighbor's house on a lake and lived there for a few months. Then the HOA told them they could not have an emu and had to get rid of it.

December 15th they called me. I only handle wildlife so I contacted  Gentle Barn, Animal Acres but no response. Frank Allen of Animal Acres did give me some emu handling tips. I decided to place ads for him on Petfinder, AdoptAPet, Craigslist and Facebook. I offered to transport if someone would adopt him for free. December 16th a few people responded to the ad. I chose the person who already had a female emu and emu experience. Thanks to everyone else who offered him a home.

I'd assumed that I could get the emu to sit in a large crate in my PT Cruiser (don't laugh). Seems you must transport them in a trailer or truck with sides and top. I called all over to rent a horse trailer but couldn't find anyone with a small horse trailer. The adopters then said that they will transport him in their truck. We agreed to transport him December 19 meeting at a truck stop in Barstow at 1 p.m.

Morning of December 19 was of course a huge rain storm. I left at 9:15 a.m. to get there by 1. Thank god I did. I had my wipers on high almost the entire way. My car hydroplaned quite a few times. I could only drive in the middle lane of the 10 freeway because the side lanes were flooded. As I approached the 60 a police car slowed traffic and closed that freeway completely because of accidents.

I continued on in the heavy rain. Even with the wipers on high I could barely see. I was white knuckling my steering wheel while leaning forward and opening my eyes as wide as possible to try to see better. It didn't help. I just ended up with dry eyes and a neck ache.

When I got to the 15 there were multiple car collisions littered on both side of the highway. I must have seen at least 50 tow trucks that day. There were 4x4, SUV and trucks in those accidents. I was driving a PT Cruiser with a lowered sport package and racing wheels, not what you want to drive in a rain storm.

By the time I neared Barstow the rain stopped and a rainbow appeared. I was so glad we would be loading the emu in dry weather. I pulled into the truck stop where we were supposed to meet at 12:30. I called everyone. They would all be late because of the weather.

The adopters truck wouldn't start that morning so they had to jerry rig someone else's truck with a gate, sides and a roof. The people who owned the house where the emu was staying arrived at 1:30. We had fun chatting and joking around until 3:30 when the adopters showed up. By then it was sprinkling and windy. We drove to pick up the emu as a motorcade.

As soon as we arrived at their house the emu came towards us to say "hello." The adopter went up and hugged the emu. Now we weren't quite sure the emu was a male or female as none of us are emu experts. I think the emu smelled the female emu on the adopters shirt because he soon showed us he was definitely a male. He tried to make some moves on the adopter.

Now to try to get the emu in the truck. We had no ramp so we'd have to lift him into the truck. Mind you he's 6' tall and weighs 150 lbs. Emus also have sharp claws on their feet. In fact a few weeks earlier a six foot side winder bit the emu on the leg. Then the emu killed it with his feet. His leg swelled a little and he was under the weather for half a day but he was fine. The vet they called said emus aren't too badly affected by venomous snake bites.

They also have sharp scales on their legs which they can open at will and cut you like multiple knives. We decided to wrap his legs in a towel I'd brought then lift him into the truck. The adopter, his daughter and I lifted him into the truck sideways. Unfortunately the towel didn't cover all of his legs and the scales really cut the adopter's thumb. There was blood all over his bumper. He wrapped his thumb and applied pressure but it kept bleeding.

After securing the emu in the truck with all the gates it was time to go to his  new home. The old owner gave us some cookies and cake for the road. The first few miles the emu was sticking his head out, slipping, butt in the air, feet in the air, feathers in the air. He finally calmed down when we hit the freeway. Then it started to rain, and rain, and rain.

We took the 15 freeway south but then had to take a two lane highway all the way to Canyon Country. There was a lot of mud, some rocks and tons of water. Every time we'd hit a dip we'd get sprayed with muddy water from the other cars. One time a semi-truck hit a flooded muddy dip and literally sprayed a tsunami of solid mud over both the truck and my car. Even with my wipers on high it took six wipes to get the mud off so I could just barely see. I was going 50 at the time, driving blind.

We finally made it to the 14 and could see a ton of flashing lights ahead across the entire freeway. The police shut down the 14 freeway and rerouted us because of yet another multiple car collision. A few miles later we were finally able to get on the 14 with no traffic. After another half an hour or so we were at the emu's new home. Fortunately the rain trickled down to a light shower.

The emu's new home is a ranch mansion! As soon as we  pulled into the automatic gates the female emu came up to us. She was making her sex calls and getting in the position. She let us pet her.

By now her new friend was really motion sick. He was just sitting in the truck with a green look on his face. We had to help him out of the truck. Then he took a big dump then stumbled away. The new adopter went up to him and held him steady while he walked. It really looked like someone walking a drunk out of a bar. They walked around a bit then took him to see the female. Even though he was in the mood when we left he was too motion sick to even say "hello" to her. They did do a group hug at least. He finally sat down for 20 minutes or so. The female came over and checked him out.

His new owner was giving me some produce from his other truck for my animals. I was filling up my bags with produce when the  male emu came to investigate. He had to look in the bags. I was so glad he was feeling better. We then said our goodbyes and I drove home. I drove over 300 miles that day because of the closed freeways.

Unfortunately when I got home my office was flooded. I guess it rained hard here at home as well. The roof leaked at the sky light right on top of my desk. The only leak in the house would be on top of my iMac, laptop, camera chargers, wireless network. I took apart my laptop and chargers to dry. The laptop is working, will have to take the iMac to the shop.

Animal Advocates protests against non-Jewish chicken killing ritual Kapparot, Kappores in Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB)  -- Every year for six days before Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement on October 2) some Jews perform the ritual "Kapparot." Kapparot is a custom in which the sins of a person are symbolically transferred to a fowl. The fowl is held above the person's head and swung in a circle three times while certain words are spoken. The fowl is then slaughtered so that the person may have a good, peaceful life. Sometimes the chickens are given to the poor as food but unfortunately the chickens are not always cared for or killed humanely.

In Los Angeles, California ritual animal sacrifice of any kind is illegal under Municipal Code SEC. 53.67. "No person shall engage in, participate in, assist in, or perform animal sacrifice. No person shall own, keep, possess or have custody of any animal with the purpose or intention of using such animal for animal sacrifice. No person shall knowingly sell, offer to sell, give away or transfer any animal to another person who intends to use such animal for animal sacrifice. 'Animal sacrifice' means the injuring or killing of any animal in any religious or cult ritual or as an offering to a deity, devil, demon or spirit, wherein the animal has not been injured or killed primarily for food purposes, regardless of whether all or any part of such animal is subsequently consumed."

The First Amendment "Freedom of Religion" does protect animal sacrifices except when a municipality or state has an existing animal cruelty statute that forbids it. If the religious sacrifice of an animal violates that statute, then the city or state can prosecute that act. If the animals as in this case were cared for, used or killed in a way that violates California's existing anti-cruelty statutes, then the defendants will not be able to fall back on the First Amendment as a defense. They would be guilty of animal cruelty which is punishable by a fine and/or jail time.

Kapparot is not mentioned in the Torah or in the Talmud. Several Jewish sages opposed the ritual, with some considering it a senseless heathen superstition. The Ramban (Nachmanides) and Rabbi Joseph Caro the compiler of the "Shulchan Aruch," the most authoritative code of Jewish laws called Kapparot "a foolish custom that Jews should avoid."

General Manager of LA Animal Services and ex-pastor Ed Boks stated, "Some of our nation's healthiest animal husbandry practices and laws originated in the ancient traditions of the Torah. Nowhere is the practice of Kapparot even mentioned in the Torah. It is a pagan tradition that has been muddled into the religious practices of a small Jewish sect. Kapparot should have no place in the 21st Century Los Angeles community."

Andrew Smith of Chicken Rescue asks people who customarily partake in this ritual to instead consider the humane and legal alternative. One may place money in a handkerchief and use this instead of a chicken. The money is then given to the poor. Former Chief Rabbi Israel Shlomo Goren stated, "Kapparot is not consistent with Jewish teachings and law. Repentance and charity can be better accomplished by using money instead of a slaughtered chicken." 

Dr. Karen Davis President of United Poultry Concerns said, "Kapparot includes the pre-ritual cruelty to the chickens, who are forced to sit crammed together in their own excrement for days without food, water or shelter awaiting their terrible death. The mercy ascribed to God by those who seek God’s mercy for themselves is thus withheld from the chickens who have the same capacity for pain, fear and distress as human beings. That Kapparot is a medieval custom, and not a Jewish law, makes it even more reprehensible."

Dr. Richard Schwartz, a respected Jewish author & educator, stated: "The use of money rather than chickens is consistent with Judaism's powerful teachings on compassion to animals. At a season when we ask for God's compassion, we should have compassion on God's defenseless creatures."

In 2006 we had an educational rally at the Temple of Pico just east of Doheny. We witnessed a man drinking the blood, see pic below. They also take the blood home in Dixie cups to smear on the forehead of their children and the elderly. The woman in the pic below told us she also smears some over her front door to ward away spirits and evil.
