Center for a Humane Economy Applauds Dropping Charges Against Local Fire Chief for Trying to Protect Bear Cub

The Center for a Humane Economy reacted to news from Jackson County District Attorney Fire Chief Gene Davies won't be prosecuted for helping a young bear.

ASHLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 / — The Center for a Humane economy reacted to today’s announcement from the Jackson County District Attorney that Greensprings Fire Chief Gene Davies will not be prosecuted for rendering aid to a young black bear on April 7th. Chief Davies was cited on April 8th by Oregon State Police (OSP) for his role in rescuing the animal from a busy public highway.

“We applaud the Jackson County District Attorney for not pursuing charges against fire chief Davies,” said Scott Beckstead, director of campaigns for the Center for a Humane Economy. “The man deserves a medal – not a citation — for coming to the aid of an animal in distress. The Oregon State Police bringing charges against him was akin to filing vandalism charges against a man breaking a window pane on a car to pull an injured man out of a burning car.”
On April 8, the day after the chief rescued the bear from the roadway, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and OSP officers arrived at the Chief’s his residence, seized the bear, and issued him a citation for criminal negligence and possession of wildlife without a permit. Despite being informed that licensed accommodations had been located for the bear, ODFW shot and killed the bear cub.

Despite public statements by ODFW that the bear was “emaciated,” photos and witness accounts depict the animal as small, but otherwise healthy.

“We are thrilled that the District Attorney understands Chief Davies’ good intentions and his desire to do the right thing by everyone involved, especially the bear cub,” said Beckstead continued. “This is not, however, the end of the conversation. This case underscores the need for fundamental reform in how our state agencies respond to wildlife in need and the good-hearted people who step up to try and help.”

Beckstead said a hearing will be held before the House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources on Thursday, May 6, to discuss the incident and propose a path to begin efforts at reform. Chief Davies is expected to testify at the hearing.

The Center for a Humane Economy does warn citizens to refrain, except in extreme circumstances, from ever taking animals from the wild. Often times, juvenile animals are only temporarily separated from their mother, and it’s best to stay clear of healthy wild animals of any age.

Las Vegas Attorney Jack Buchanan Offers Serious Advice to Protect Yourself Against Criminal Proceedings

Jack Buchanan of Las Vegas, president and criminal defense attorney at Buchanan Law Defense, addresses key advice for those grappling with criminal proceedings.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 / — With his years of experience, defense attorney Jack Buchanan knows better than most what harms or helps defendants. He has represented individuals accused of every imaginable crime, giving him professional insight into how people accused and on trial can protect themselves during criminal proceedings. If you feel ill-prepared to face the legal process, start with these four key pieces of advice.

Handle Police Interactions With Care
Interacting with the police during an arrest, investigation or trial can cause distress and frustration. Anytime they speak to the police, Jack Buchanan insists that people should have a lawyer present to protect themselves against unfair questioning or treatment. You want to avoid saying anything that could negatively affect your case.

Often the best course of action when addressing the police involves declining to answer their questions. Offering limited information until you feel confident in what to say and how it will affect the case protects you in the long run. When you do tell your story, never lie, since lying can land you in as much trouble as saying too much.

Land Seasoned Defense Attorneys Like Jack Buchanan
A strong criminal defense attorney serves as your best form of protection against criminal proceedings. You want a lawyer with extensive practical experience who understands cases like yours. Attorneys like Jack Buchanan in Las Vegas offer free consultations, which can help you identify a lawyer you can trust.

A criminal defense attorney provides invaluable services to defendants of all kinds. You can speak openly to your attorney without the fear of retribution for your words. Attorneys help navigate your conversations with police, structure what you want to say, how you can say it and will prepare you for court. 

The prosecution in a criminal case must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. Through the information exchanged at your consultation, your attorney will understand just what the prosecutor must do to prove your guilt. This means they know how to build your case to combat any allegations made against you. 

Consider Your Courtroom Presentation
Jack Buchanan strongly believes that how you present and conduct yourself during criminal proceedings can make or break your case.

Think About Your Appearance
In court, you want to make an excellent first impression to rally people on your side. A neat, professional appearance with business-like clothing goes far in helping your reputation. 

Manners In Court
People should also consider how they behave during and outside courtroom proceedings. Discussing an ongoing case with family, friends or on social media can prove detrimental to a defendant. Without proper counsel, anything or anyone could become evidence or a witness. Conducting yourself with respect for the case and people in court, no matter what you feel about what’s being said, can give you the upper hand.

Know Your Rights
Above all, Jack Buchanan believes defendants in criminal proceedings should understand their rights. Critical examples include but are not limited to the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the United States Constitution.

Fourth Amendment
The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. When police begin investigating a potential crime or respond to a tip, people should stand firm on this right. 

Fifth Amendment 
From the initial arrest and questioning, the accused can use their Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination. The Miranda Rights read to arrested persons falls under this amendment, and police must declare this if they intend to question someone. The Fifth Amendment also extends to trial, where Jack Buchanan and other attorneys ensure the judge and prosecutor cannot force the defendant to testify against their wish. 

Sixth Amendment
The Sixth Amendment guarantees accused persons counsel during criminal proceedings, but it also includes other important factors. The defendant has a right to confront witnesses who testify against them, as well as obtain witnesses in their favor. The support offered by character and regular witnesses immeasurably boosts the defendant’s credibility.

The Defense Attorney You Can Trust
If you need a defense attorney, look no further than Buchanan Defense Law’s unmatched reputation. Since taking over his father’s office in 2009, Buchanan has dedicated himself to protecting the rights of residents and tourists of Las Vegas accused of crimes. With a diverse range of experience, Buchanan has fought against everything from traffic offenses to accusations of violent crimes with passion and open communication.

Simon Peel Discusses How the Pennsylvania High Court Rejected Election Lawsuits

Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems recently discussed how the Pennsylvania High Court rejected the election lawsuits.

MARLBOROUGH, UK, April 30, 2021 / — All eyes were on the United States in early November, as the nation decided whether President Donald Trump would remain in office or if a change needed to be made. After several days of counting votes that were made in person and sent via mail due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was determined that former Vice President Joe Biden would be taking the role of President of the United States starting in January. However, this did not come without extreme pushback from President Donald Trump and his team.

"As soon as the results became evident, Donald Trump began filing lawsuits," Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems said. "This is an unprecedented act following election results in the United States, as the loser of the battle typically concedes in a polite and respectful manner."

Simon Peel explained that some of the lawsuits filed were filed by the Republican party trying to discredit Joe Biden's win in the Pennsylvania battleground state. However, Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems added that Pennsylvania's highest court tossed out a several-day-old order, preventing the state from certifying numerous contests on its Nov. 3 ballots.

"It was a unanimous decision by the members of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court," Simon Peel said. "The court commented that the lawsuit was filed months after the time limit had expired. This time limit had been determined in a mail-in voting law that had been made roughly a year earlier."

Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems explained that the lawsuit was one of the most remarkable the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had ever seen. It asked that the entire election be overturned at that exact moment. The lawsuit did not mention even one mail-in ballot that was proven to be fraudulently counted or cast. Simon Peel commented that the lawsuit was made, but it was backed by zero evidence.

Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems stated that the state's attorney general was extremely pleased with the result as he saw it as another major win for democracy in a year that has seen the country shift away from its founding principles.

Experts like Simon Peel stated that, following this denial, the Republican party suggested wiping the results and allowing the state's legislature, which is controlled by Republicans, to pick electors who can choose the popular vote. The two Republicans on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court actually joined alongside the five Democrats to oppose such remedies.

"Despite the conclusive results, President Donald Trump's lawyers have vowed to appeal the lawsuits to the Supreme Court of the United States," Simon Peel, formerly of Jitterbit, IBM, and Cast Iron Systems said. "We will see what happens in the coming weeks and months."

You see, it’s not just doping that’s at issue in U.S. horseracing – horse slaughter, and the archaic use of the whip must be addressed as well.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, USA, April 30, 2021 / — By Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action in Washington, D.C. who was named one of The Hill’s Top Lobbyists for 2020, and honored by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, II for his work to protect horses.

Saturday evening’s call to post marks the running the 147th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, and for the first time in decades all of the horses will be running without Lasix, a diuretic that’s been rampantly misused as a performance-enhancing drug in racing since the 1980’s. Reformers in the industry successfully achieved the ban on Lasix at the Derby through the adoption of Kentucky state regulations that came just prior to Congressional enactment of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA). Animal Wellness Action’s (AWA) leaders worked on that legislation for six years and when AWA formed, we made it a top priority. Then President Trump signed the measure into law in late December – the first new federal horse protection since the enactment of the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act in 1971.

HISA relied on a coalition of animal advocates and horse racing industry reforms. It would not have been secured without industry buy-in and leadership from The Jockey Club, Water, Hay, Oats Alliance (WHOA), The Breeders’ Cup, Keeneland, the New York Racing Association (NYRA), and others. That coalition prompted Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and their House counterparts, Reps. Paul Tonko, D-N.Y., (who represents Saratoga, home to one of the oldest tracks in the U.S.), and Andy Barr, R-Ky., (who represents Lexington – the “Horse Capital of the World”).

The new legislation won’t take effect until mid-2022, and there’s much work to do to make sure the anti-doping standards are honored and, once the measure takes full legal effect, that it’s enforced. In the meantime, horses are still dying on tracks across America – nearly 100 so far this year.

The issue has been elevated this week by reporting from USA Today and the Louisville Courier Journal, in a story titled “'It's so easy to cheat': Is horse racing finally getting serious about drug misuse?"

There’s already a backlash among horse industry players who are addicted to doping. Some players, led by rogue horse trainers, as well as Oklahoma tracks and its state Attorney General are suing to invalidate the law. Some of the truly substandard tracks in the U.S. simply cannot fathom a future without doping, since they see horses as little more than commodities on the hoof. If they don’t perform well, what’s the point?
We are confident that the federal courts will uphold the law.

But in the meantime, our corporate engagement arm – The Center for a Humane Economy – is keeping our hands on the reins and driving the conversation on the issue in the private for-profit sector. This year we’ve been focused on shining light on the 10 horses who died on one of the most dangerous tracks in the U.S., in Charles Town, West Virginia, operated by the publicly traded Penn National Gaming Inc. The Associated Press spotlighted the first deaths in February, and WDVM in the greater D.C., Virginia, Maryland metro area joined us in unveiling an expose on Charles Town last month.

You see, it’s not just doping that’s at issue in U.S. horseracing – horse slaughter, and the archaic use of the whip must be addressed as well. The betting public will no longer tolerate the abuse of these horses. This isn’t ancient Rome, with games at the Colosseum and Circus Maximus; it’s 2021, and the Charles Town track has become well known for its harsh and unforgiving treatment of horses. We’re pressing Penn National that operates Hollywood Casino in Charles Town, to turn this ship around or shut down. Penn National must improve its track surfaces, implement a ban on whipping, and enact new policies that protect American racehorses from ending up dead on the track or consigned to the slaughter pipeline to be served up on foreign dinner plates.

While the call to post is sounded this weekend, we hope you’ll join us in the call to action and sign our petition asking them to support the reforms outlined above. Horses are at the center of their business, and they should not be an afterthought when it comes to their health, safety, and welfare.

Kenosha was one of five Wisconsin cities to accept private conditions on management of elections in exchange for grant money

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 / — The Amistad Project, the nation’s leading election integrity watchdog, is holding a press conference today with Brown County Clerk Sandy Juno and five Kenosha residents to announce the filing of a formal complaint with the Wisconsin Elections Commission accusing the city of participating in an unlawful scheme to privatize the 2020 elections in order to benefit presidential candidate Joe Biden.

In July 2020, Kenosha received a $10,000 payment from the left-leaning Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) as an enticement to join the so-called “Wisconsin 5” along with Racine, Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay. The cities then applied for, and received, additional CTCL grants worth about $6.3 million – premised on their acceptance of strict conditions that imposed election rules and procedures inconsistent with Wisconsin law. Kenosha never sought approval of this arrangement from either the state legislature or the Wisconsin Elections Commission, thereby usurping authority expressly invested in the state legislature by the United States Constitution.

GM Law Firm LLC Explains How Debt Collectors Can Seize the New $1400 Stimulus Checks

The American Rescue Plan gave $1,400 to millions of people struggling financially, but debt collectors are seizing many checks. GM Law Firm explains how.

BOCA RATON, FL, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 / — Debt has undoubtedly become an integral part of American culture. It is estimated that the average American carries upwards of $90,460 in consumer debt between student loans, mortgages, credit cards, and personal loans.

The arrival of COVID-19 on the national scene only enhanced the debt issue for many citizens. As businesses of all sizes struggled and jobs fell away at alarming rates, it became clear that financial relief needed to be implemented on a greater level.

Rising debt and faltering incomes in American households were offset by the Cares Act, which was passed on March 27, 2020. This package provided a stimulus check of $1,200 to qualifying Americans, with an additional $500 for dependents.

A second economic relief bill was signed at the end of the year, and in December of 2020, the IRS sent out $600 stimulus checks, paired with $600 qualifying dependent child payments. The most recent economic relief package, known as The American Rescue Plan, distributed $1,400 stimulus payments to both qualifying Americans and dependents beginning in March 2021.

While the payments were a relief to many, some Americans who qualified for the first round of $1,200 stimulus checks saw their payments garnished by private debt collectors. In these cases, debt collectors had existing judgments against the debtors and were able to withdraw the funds directly from bank accounts.

The second round of $600 stimulus checks came with legislation tied to the economic package that prevented any garnishment. This was implemented as lawmakers recognized that Americans needed cash flow to survive the financial fallout of the pandemic.

Unfortunately, garnishment is once again a possibility with the third stimulus payout of $1,400. The American Rescue Plan was passed through reconciliation in the Senate without protections in place to prevent garnishment. The absence of this protection puts those in debt at risk of having their stimulus funds pulled as soon as they are directly deposited into a bank account.

While lawmakers rush to try to amend the problem at hand, the team at GM Law Firm suggests that Americans who carry significant debt try to find alternate solutions to offset potential garnishment. At GM Law Firm, LLC, the team takes a proactive approach to debt dismissal that helps those who are struggling under the weight of debt to enjoy the freedom they deserve.

The team at GM Law Firm understands how debt works and can provide clients with the resources they need to stay afloat. When debt collectors attempt to garnish stimulus checks to cover overdue payments, GM Law Firm, LLC, steps up with productive solutions so that hard-working Americans can get back on track financially.

GM Law Firm, LLC, is a Florida-based consumer advocacy law firm. We specialize in private student loans, credit card debt, and medical debt.

My Body, My Choice Identifies Potential Illegal and Unethical Actions At Trader Joe’s

Organization Advocates Health Freedom

“No company is above the law.". “We are not asking for special treatment, we are merely asking that Trader Joe’s comply with the law.”

— Allan Stevo

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 / — My Body, My Choice, a California Based Health Freedom Organization announced that it contacted executives at Trader Joe’s asking them to explain the claims of disability discrimination made against them and insisting that Trader Joe’s make all of its policies around face masks public. The organization stated that Trader Joe’s may be acting illegally and unethically in its face mask policy. Members of My Body, My Choice contacted Executive Director Allan Stevo over the Trader Joe’s refusal to allow customers to invoke legal exemptions from wearing face masks in the establishment. Stevo has demanded from Trader Joe’s, its written policy around face masks and also any documentation around how employees are trained to handle exemptions when invoked by a customer. He is also demanding to know why employees of Trader Joes are also unable to invoke legal exemptions to wearing face masks. The United States has a long history avoiding one-size-fits-all approaches and making clear individual accommodation when it comes to ability and disability, medical advantages and disadvantages, psychological conditions and psychological benefits, and that includes legal exemptions for face masks he noted.

“No company is above the law,” said Allan Stevo. “We are not asking for special treatment, we are merely asking that Trader Joe’s comply with the law. The public deserves open source customer and employee policies, in which transparency is paramount, so customers can know where they stand and how to comply. I call upon Trader Joe’s to respond to our request and make sure the law is carried out as it was intended to be.”

About Allan Stevo

Allan Stevo has been a tireless advocate for more fair treatment of individuals under the law for over two decades. From the disabled to those with severe medical conditions, Stevo has pushed for individualized approaches, rather than the one-size-fits-all treatment our institution often foists upon those most in need. Face Masks in One Lesson demonstrates how and why that individualized, patient-centric approach must be continued for the benefit of those most in need.

He has spoken to audiences at the University of Chicago, MIT, and dozens of other top schools in the US and around the world. In 2012, he became a bestselling author and in 2014, a syndicated columnist.
His writing has appeared widely in publications as diverse as: The Hill, Roll Call, The Daily
Caller, Economic Policy Journal,, The Tenth Amendment Center, and The
Daily Bell, in print publications such as The New York Post, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Buffalo News, Anchorage Press, Lexington Leader, Epoch Times, Nevada Legal Review, and at think-tanks such as the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, The Cobden Center,, and many others.

Stevo’s influential writing has been described as “a precedence of sanity,” “the truth in print,” and “a beacon of liberty.” Stevo’s been described as “one of the rare individuals who operate under reason and logic.” Reading Face Masks in One Lesson “might be the most important thing you can do for yourself, your family, and your country,” writes Professor Robert Wright.

“What does Stevo’s writing mean to me?” asks Dr. Walter Block “All the world.”
Stevo’s Face Masks in One Lesson provides the ultimate response to mandatory masking and is an irreplaceable tool for those who will not go masked another day.
