Keeping this blog

 Google is doing away with inactive blogs thus this one post to keep alive all the info included in this blog.

Tuesday, May 17, 2016


UPDATE:  This transporter was served with a lawsuit on Saturday, May 28th. Those who harassed the victim's business might need to keep an eye out, they are also liable. Remember Niagara? Those who engaged in threatening, etc.? They were sued. All I can say, is choose your friends wisely. Choosing to follow this transporter will get you in trouble and harms animals, because she harms them. Guilty by association.

As you well know, these transports of dogs to who knows where are more than a pet peeve with me. One transporter, in particular, grates me the wrong way. 

First there was Rocco. This poor pit ended up in Georgia in a suspected fighting ring, but a definite cruelty case. Because the Devore shelter, where Rocco was pulled from, was microchipping pets pulled by 'rescues' out of concern about these transports, Rocco's microchip was traced back to Devore. And it led back to this transporter. This blog post has a cut and paste of what transpired on facebook afterwards.

Then there is Rose Adams in Washington State. This transporter was named in the police records of this case.

I really don't think it would have taken much effort to determine that Rose Adams should not be getting dogs but then again, with the mentality of No Kill spurring on this transporter, outta sight, outta mind, is her cup of tea. 

While there had been previous complaints about alleged illegal activity at the Lake Ballinger-area residence shared by the couple, the evidence was insufficient for a search warrant. This changed on May 14 when the Edmonds Police Department was presented with graphic video evidence of animal abuse occurring at the couple’s home. In response, Judge Fair issued a warrant to search the residence, which was immediately served by officers from the Edmonds Police Department.

“We are well aware of that address and that Rose Adams and George Beutler have been hanging around there,” said Edmonds Police Sergeant Mark Marsh. “Our officers have been there on numerous occasions. Our parking enforcement officers are also aware of the motor home and have issued appropriate citations. We will continue to be vigilant in that area.”

So this brings us up to date, for the most part, at least for the ones that we know about. Of course, how many do we not know about that this transporter has delivered into hell. 

The most recent one went all the way to Alaska, yep you heard me. A good excuse to write off the expense of a cruise is to take a poor rescue dog personally to Alaska, a 3 day cruise. But was a home check done upon arrival? Were the members of household interviewed? We can only assume the dog was loaded off the boat, outta sight, outta mind, again.

The dog, Brady, was missing from his new Alaska home in only one day. A post was made that the dog had been shot and once the snow melted, hunters will find the body. Oh, now don't rush to get pissed off at the poster, wait for the story. It may be awhile before we know the true story. Then again, it may not.

The only thing we do know is that this transporter/rescuer is toxic to dogs.

I've gotten some comments as to why I am not writing as much anymore. Others do a much better job and are writing about events. Of course, they don't put my slant on things.

To be honest, there is just too much work right now to keep this blog going. Although I want to everyday, it's hard to do when you are writing to legislators all day.

I will make an effort to do a little more with the blog. Much of it has been 'dedicated' to the breeder, Brenda Barnette. Obviously, no one in LA much read it when it first came out, but they are reading it now.

LA got what it wished for, No Kill. It wasn't what you thought, was it LA? Tried to tell you, didn't want to hear it. My problem now is if Barnette does leave, who will take her place. No one in their right mind who is capable of fixing LAAS would be willing to do it UNLESS No Kill is kicked to the curb and never brought up again. Otherwise, LA is doomed to repeat the mistakes made with Boks and Barnette. I fear an even worse person will be hired, Jon Cicirelli from San Jose. He wants the job.

I just hope that LA doesn't jump out of the pot into the fire. If they don't start learning their lessons from the past, they are doomed to repeat them in the future.

Where's the book, DA? More excuses I see. You mentioned Ian Dunbar, how about some links to prove he helped you. If anything, he advised you to drop it.

And while we are on the subject of your failures to follow through, how about that lawsuit you talk about all the time for San Bernardino? What happened to that? It's been two years now since it was announced. Nothing has happened. In fact, the Grand Jury investigated all the accusations from the No Killers and found nothing. That report was just released. So where do you go from here? Will you just continue to mouth the same bullshit over and over?

Face it Dumb Ass, you are a wash out. You washed out along with your buddy, the Whino, a long time ago.

Poor little Dougie, Ledy, Pacelle, Whiney. They are all crying in their vegan soup at this point. 

They have been stopped in their tracks this year. Very proud to report that during the first quarter of the 2015 legislative season, state preemption bills prohibiting local governments from enacting breed-specific laws were brought in five states

To put it simply, so far in 2015 Best Fiends has a 0% success rate in passing legislation. Last year, 2014, wasn't much better with only a 33% success rate.

This is without money and that makes it all the more amazing. Grassroots all the way. 

Yeah, poor Dougie with all his efforts, if you want to call his uneducated rants an effort, failed to convince people. Guess folks just don't read that rag he writes for.

So let's see what we have here. We have a man (I'm making an assumption) who is from Canada, now living in Mexico, has little lap dogs, and runs with a very young crowd. Did I mention that he is 57 years old? Yet the pictures he uses on all his 'writings' is not that of a 57 year old. Guess he figures can't catch those young groupies with a picture of an old man.

This man writes about pit bulls but where is his credentials for doing so? He doesn't own one and doesn't the pit community insist that you don't know a pit unless you own one? 

He claims he isn't a Berman puppet, but he spews every word that Berman spews. Berman now includes him on his sites and the man still wants to claim he isn't on a payroll? Cooper isn't making a living writing Travel and Leisure articles, money has to be coming from elsewhere. 

Take a gander of this old man with his 'friend' who is young enough to be his granddaughter. Take a gander at his dogs, narry a pit bull to be seen. Just like with Winograd, they want everyone else to jeopardize their families with a pit bull, but they don't put their money where their mouths are. 

Yep, his number is easy to figure out.

Hey, Dumb Ass, do you really know the company you keep? This is why your name is now on the list of domestic terrorists, guilt by association. 

The no kill movement has been around far longer than Nathan Winograd has been on the scene. He comes along and sees an opportunity to be seized, thus is born the "guru" of No Kill. When Winograd left Tompkins County, it was considered fairly sudden. The reason given was family illness. Really? His father in law was indicted for internet fraud at that time. Rumors have long been circulated that Nathan Winograd’s father-in-law Terry Holdt is the money behind Winograd’s various crusades, jihads and holy wars. A little bit of research shows that Holdt has paid the mortgage and property taxes on all of Winograd’s homes since his marriage.
And who is Terry Holdt? Turns out he’s a type of guy with a long and ugly track record of lawsuits and bankruptcies in his wake. During the 1990s and early 2000s, Mr. Holdt served in various leadership capacities at SONICblue, Inc., an electronics development and manufacturing company, and at S3, Inc., its progenitor. S3 and SONICblue sold consumer electronics that included digital audio players and ReplayTV television technology.
Here are some of his finest moments:
● Ousted CEO called for Holdt’s resignation over insider loans
In Aug. 2002, SONICblue CEO Kenneth Potashner was fired from the company after calling for the resignation of Terry Holdt and two other board members over insider loans. Loans of approximately $177,000 were made from SONICblue to Terry Holdt and the two other board members to purchase stock in RioPort, Inc., a partial subsidiary of SONICblue. Mr. Potashner claimed that the board changed the loans’ terms so that the three board members would be absolved of repaying the loans. Interim CEO L. Gregory Ballard maintained that the loans were all legal and properly disclosed in federal filings. Mr. Holdt dismissed Mr. Potashner’s claims as “bogus.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Aug. 10, 2002; San Francisco Gate, Aug. 10, 2002)
● SONICblue files for bankruptcy protection
In 2003, SONICblue filed for bankruptcy protection amid its ongoing legal battle with the major media companies over its ReplayTV units, and following a loss of $106 million in sales coupled with debts and liabilities in excess of $330 million in 2002. (Forbes, Mar. 24, 2003)
● Holdt and SONICblue sued for breach, fraud
In 2005, SONICblue bondholders filed a complaint asserting claims for breach of fiduciary duty and constructive fraud in connection with the issuance of bonds in 2002. The plaintiffs claimed that SONICblue and its directors (to include Terry Holdt, named as an individual) “improperly authorized and entered into the financing arrangement while SONICblue was in the zone of insolvency and hopelessly unable to honor its long-term bond obligations.” Following the bondholders’ complaint, SONICblue and its directors removed the complaint to their ongoing bankruptcy case on the basis of having claims for indemnification against the claim. (Case 5:07-cv-03483-

Rumor had it that Winograd was promised LA City for his program by the ADL-LA. They were promising, according to rumor, that they would force the Mayor into hiring Winograd. Winograd swears he never wanted the job but he sure wanted that $140,000 consulting gig. This is a chronicle of how the ADL-LA terrorized LA City in the name of No Kill and earned No Kill a place on the domestic terrorist list.
In recent weeks, one neighborhood in the Larchmont Village section of Los Angeles has been under siege: graffiti scrawlings, stink bombs, menacing midnight phone calls and, in July, a bomb scare that forced an evacuation.Police and political leaders say it's a part of an escalation by animal rights activists in Los Angeles, whom critics charge are turning away from legitimate protest and embracing illegal harassment tactics and vandalism.'D+FOR+WORKERS.-a0137868569
Fearing escalating violence by animal-rights activists, the Los Angeles City Council approved a plan Wednesday to provide surveillance equipment at the homes of Animal Services Department employees. The action came as the Animal Defense League announced it plans to demonstrate Saturday in front of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's home to protest what it says is his failed promise to hire a new director of Animal Services and push ahead with a no-kill policy at city animal shelters. Aides to the mayor said he respects the activists' right to protest but hopes to meet with them in coming days to work out a mutual policy on how animals should be treated by the city. Councilman Tom LaBonge said his proposal to provide surveillance equipment for the workers was prompted by employees' concerns about possible attacks at their homes. Members of the Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for a smoke bomb released recently in the downtown apartment building where Animal Services Director Guerdon Stuckey lives. ``There is a point where it crosses the line,'' LaBonge said. ``We welcome people coming to our council meetings and to protest peacefully. But when it goes beyond that and city workers feel threatened or there is a danger to their families or neighbors, we have to protect our workers.''
The militant underground Animal Liberation Front (ALF) is claiming responsibility for an alleged military-style bombing that occurred at the Bunker Hill Towers Apartments on Figueroa Street, the residence of Los Angeles Animal Services General Manager Guerdon Stuckey.
In a statement on its website dated September 17, the shadowy ALF took credit for the act. The information then appeared in a September 20 e-mail from the unaffiliated, aboveground animal rights group Animal Defense League Los Angeles (ADLLA). The ALF often works by dropping communiqués with legitimate groups. The e-mail stated: "A communiqué received by the Press Office (for the ALF) reads in part: ‘The animal liberation front has taken advice from our Commander in Chief to "smoke terrorists out of their holes." The target was Los Angeles number One terrorist Gordon Stuckey. Military Strength Smoke grenades were detonated on the floor of this animal killers abode. Sleep light … alf."
LAAS’s high euthanasia rates has tapped the wrath of animal rights groups such as the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and the Animal Defense League Los Angeles (ADL­LA). These groups have utilized militant protest tactics in recent years to draw attention to the large numbers of animals dying in the city’s shelters. Protestors have also 
picketed outside LAAS staff members’ homes. ADL­LA was blamed for September gas­ bombing the former GM Stuckey’s home in 2005. City Council found the situation serious enough to pass a motion allowing for increased security and surveillance in front of animal control workers’ homes. The protests have attracted the attention of the Los Angeles media. The Los Angeles Times, The Daily News, LA Weekly and various local newspapers and news channels devoted regular coverage to the conflict during the height of protesting in 2005.
In the summer of 2004, police had taken nine reports related to animal activists at the home of employees in five months, including five in July alone.xIn June of that year, a LA judge granted a temporary restraining order issued by the city to stop protesters from “assaulting, stalking or following” David Diliberto, a high ranking official of LAAS, during working hours. The judge also prohibited the ADL­LA from coming within 100 feet of Dilberto or posting his address or phone number on the internet. Dilberto, had endured a bomb threat by protestors affiliated to ADL­LA and ALF. In July, his family was awoken at 3 am by protestors dressed as mortuary workers trying to pick up a body from his home. 
According to the FBI, ALF and the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) alone are 
 responsible for more than 600 criminal acts in the United States since 1996, causing 
damages in excess of $43 milliondollars. While their actions have not yet taken 
human life, federal and state lawmakers are proposing legislation to give more muscle to 
law enforcement efforts against those committing violent acts in the name of animal 
rights or the environment. ALF is listed as one of the U.S. Department of Justice’s 
domestic terror organizations. 
While the ADL­LA claims not to know the identity of ALF members, both groups are part of the recently formed NortH American Animal Liberation Press Office. The office received communiqués from anonymous sources to publicize actions made by animal ­rights groups. It also opens up lines of communications between animal rights groups.

A search on the Animal Liberation Front website for Nathan Winograd yields 77 results. 

Winograd was questioned by Patricia Ruland of the Austin Chronicle about his association with these radical groups, why he doesn't dis-associate himself with them. This was his answer.

After the forum, during a brief interview amplifying his prepared remarks, I also asked Winograd whether he welcomed the support of radical animal rights groups that have committed (or taken credit for) violent actions, in what they describe online as support for Winograd's No Kill programs (for example, Winograd answered that question and others but later responded by enlisting a local attorney to denounce the question as inflammatory and to suggest that further questions would be subject to legal review. On his blog the day following his talk, Winograd blasted this yet-to-be writtenChronicle story: "Despite the support and enthusiasm of the crowd, and the promise that a focus on the No Kill Equation would mean for the homeless animals of Austin, there was one hostile attendee: a reporter who lashed out at me for questioning the city's effort and those of the shelter and posed questions of an inflammatory and defamatory nature. No effort was made to simply report the news; investigate fairly; or pretend to be professional and lack bias." ( The audio recording of our brief conversation reflects nothing of the kind, only questions asked and answered. Winograd said that he was not affiliated with such violent groups and, as a former prosecutor, believes in pressing charges if such illegal acts had occurred. (WHY DOESN'T HE JUST COME RIGHT OUT AND SAY HE WANTS NO PART OF THEM? WHY DOESN'T HE CONDEMN THEM OPENLY?)

In Florida, certain radical entities have been solicited by No Kill Nation against certain people who are speaking against NKN. Note above about the role of ALF in Los Angeles. In the past few months, No Kill Nation filed a lawsuit against Randy DeCarlo. Randy had a rescue, the Miami/Dade Rescue Railroad, and had saved hundreds of pets. Randy also has his home as a sanctuary for older hounds, hounds that required 24-hour a day care. And Randy himself is a victim of Crohns Disease. That is a long and complicated story but it is ending up with a threat of jail for Randy. The stress has made his health worse.

No Kill Nation has gone so far as to establish a "legal" fund to fight people such as Randy. It is called an "Awareness" fund but the spirit of that fund is to intimidate, to hurt good people who have dedicated their lives to saving lives. Is this the action of a truly humane group, to hurt a disabled man who is providing sanctuary, and a darn good one to boot, to old hounds?

Screen shots have been made of threats to Randy and others by those involved with No Kill Nation, as well as the founder of No Kill Nation. Now there are police reports and an FBI case number. Is this stopping No Kill Nation? No, the anger is escalating. A press release last week by Nathan Winograd announced that No Kill is an animal rights movement, and that puts it in league with the likes of ALF/Shac.

Screen shots show No Kill Nation speaking with two known radical groups, one of which is the ALF. If you note above the role of ALF in Los Angeles, this throws a different light onto what is happening. Another group was contacted in regards to hacking internet accounts and several people did experience being hacked afterwards. Is No Kill Nation giving ALF the red light to come into Florida and do what was done in LA?

Ingrid NewKirk of PeTA pointed to an infamous cyberbully who follows No Kill Nation per many screen shots available. This particular cyberbully paints herself, or rather many of herselves, as the victim/victims when it is she who is victimizing people with the full knowledge and approval of No Kill Nation.

"but hide, as bullies do, behind the anonymity of made-up names, such as that of a Peanuts cartoon character who posted 375 anti-PETA comments over a period of two weeks."
