BLM Transfer Provision in Omnibus Outrages Advocates | Straight from the Horse’s Heart

by Scott Streater, as published on E&E News

“The provision in the latest omnibus bill was requested last year as part of President Obama’s fiscal 2017 budget proposal (Greenwire, Feb. 10, 2016).”

The omnibus spending package the Senate approved today contains a provision that would make it easier for the Bureau of Land Management to adopt out or transfer wild horses and burros, reducing the growing number of animals under the agency’s care.

But the provision has angered animal rights advocates, who say it contains too many loopholes to protect thousands of wild horses and burros from being slaughtered.

At issue is a section in the omnibus package to fund the federal government through September — originally requested by the Obama administration last year — that would allow the Interior secretary to “transfer excess wild horses or burros” BLM has removed from federal rangelands “to other Federal, State, and local government agencies for use as work animals.”

The provision would authorize the secretary to “make any such transfer immediately upon request” of a government agency, such as the U.S. Border Patrol. The provision includes language stating that the animals cannot be killed or sold or transferred to any entity that would slaughter them “for processing into commercial products.”

But it allows transferred horses and burros to be euthanized “upon the recommendation of a licensed veterinarian, in cases of severe injury, illness, or advanced age.”

It’s that language that has wild horse advocates outraged.

Ginger Kathrens, executive director of the Colorado-based Cloud Foundation, said BLM “has a history of misinforming the public” about issues related to wild horses.

“Couple this with the vague ‘illness’ and ‘advanced age’ language” in the omnibus provision, “and the potential exists for the killing of thousands of horses,” said Kathrens, a member of the BLM National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board…(CONTINUED)

Ozark Encyclopedia – B – Buttons – Mountain Man Traditional Healing

Source: Ozark Encyclopedia – B – Buttons – Mountain Man Traditional Healing

Used in wart buying ceremony – “Some specialists go through a kind of wart-buying ceremony, but no money actually changes hands. You show the man your wart, and he says: ‘Want to sell it?’ You answer ‘Yes, sir.’ Whereupon the wart taker produces a big safety pin with many buttons strung on it. He selects one of these and hands it to you saying: ‘Carry that there button in your pocket till the wart’s gone. Hit’s mine now, ‘cause I done bought an’ paid for it.’” ~Randolph OMF 127

Buttons kept for good luck – “A button received as a gift is always lucky, no matter what the color. Years ago, many an Ozark girl collected buttons from her friends and strung them together into a sort of necklace called a charm string. A charm string not only brought good fortune to the owner but also served as a sort of memory book for women who could not read one button recalled a beloved aunt, another a friend’s wedding, still another a dance or a quilting party or an apple-peelin’ or some other pleasant occasion.” ~Randolph OMF 61

White button for eye troubles – “When a foreign body gets into the eye, just press a big white button against the eyelid and wink repeatedly; the object which is causing the trouble will pass out through one of the holes in the button. Near Day, Missouri, a small boy got some sawdust in his eye. A friend cut a small pearl button off his shirt, washed it carefully, and somehow placed it under the boy’s eyelid. I was told that the poor chap walked about for several minutes, with the big bulge in his eyelid plainly visible. It must have been terribly painful, but he stuck with it until the tears washed the sawdust away.” ~Randolph OMF 139-140

“If you hold a big white button over your eye when something is in it, it will leave through one of the holes.” ~Parler FBA II 2167

In mouth for head pains – “A white bone button, held in the mouth, is recommended for any pain above the tongue, especially headaches and earaches.” ~Randolph OMF 145

Brass button in mouth for earache – “Some mountain folk cure the earache, it is said, by putting a brass button in the patient’s mouth and then unexpectedly discharging a gun behind his back.” ~Randolph OMF 145

“Some people believe you can cure an earache by putting a brass button in your mouth and shoot a gun unexpectedly behind your head.” ~Parler FBA II 2123

Pied Piper – secretsoftheserpent

The Pied Piper of Hamelin is an example of just how brilliant the scribes were in preserving history. With Goethe and the Brothers Grimm involved, this myth holds some very astounding secrets. This myth is true, but it didn’t happen in the way that researchers think. It’s time to reveal the secrets of this myth that have been hiding for over 700 years.

The Pied Piper legends came out about the same time as the King Arthur legends. These legends came out  when the Crusaders brought back ancient texts from Syria and Jerusalem. The stories of these ancient texts spread through Gaul, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Scandinavia and Holland. Witty scribes got a hold of these ancient texts and preserved the history in stories of their local. The entire story of King Arthur is the story of the biblical Jesus, but they made him a King in Britain(See King Arthur). The story of the Pied Piper took place in Egypt, but the Germanic scribes placed it in Germany.

The first clue to this story is the Pied Piper shows up in a ‘coat of many colors’. This is the same thing Joseph, son of Jacob, wore in the Old Testament. In Patriarch Pharaohs, I showed that Jacob was the Lower Egyptian Pharaoh Yacobaam. He was kicked out of Egypt, but his son Joseph became a high priest to the Upper Egyptian Pharaoh. This ‘coat of many colors’ is what high priests wore in Egypt. This is telling the people ‘with eyes to see’ and ‘ears to hear’ that this is an Egyptian story. It was this Upper Egyptian bloodline of Joseph’s that was kicked out of Egypt twice. The first was his father Yacobaam(Jacob) and the second was a few generations later. We know this story as the story of Moses and the Israelites.

Using rats and cats is reinforcing that this was a dispute between Upper and Lower Egypt. The Rat Goddess was Tat-Taiut, she was always portrayed wearing a disk with horns and the Uraeus. The disk is the moon and the horns are for Taurus. These were symbols of Upper Egypt. The Uraeus is the cobra symbol of Lower Egypt. She was known as the “Goddess of the two lands”(Upper and Lower Egypt). The cats are symbolizing Bast or Bastet. She was the Cat Goddess of Lower Egypt. The Lower Egyptians were the ones forcing monotheism on everyone in Egypt. They wanted to get rid of all the gods except Aton, the sun. That is why all the cats are dead in this story.

The Piper tells the Mayor he will rid the town of rats for 1,000 florins. The mayor tells him if you get rid of the rats we will happily pay 50,000 florins. In just about every version of this story the Piper is playing a flute or some just say pipe. A piper is a person who plays the bagpipes. In Egypt they had the bagpipes, they just called it a skin bag. The Piper plays his pipes and all the rats follow him. He takes them to the river and the rats are all drowned or swept away by the current. This is confirming that this story is talking about the Moses story in the bible. In the bible the Pharaoh’s army is swept away or drowned. The Piper goes to get his payment and the mayor refuses to pay him the 50,000 florins. The Piper ask for at least the 1,000 florins he wanted. The mayor gives him 50 florins and says be happy you have that. The Piper tells the mayor “you will regret breaking your promise” and he vanishes. The people are not happy with the mayor for breaking his promise, but he exclaims “We saved 50,000 florins”!

The Piper returns that night and plays his pipes. This time only the children follow him out into the streets. The children followed him  through forest and to the foot of a mountain. When the Piper came to a dark rock he played his pipes louder and a great door creaked open. The children followed the Piper into the cave. When the last child had entered the cave, the door creaked shut. A great landslide came down the mountain blocking the entrance to the cave forever. Only a little lame boy escaped this fate and he is the one that told the citizens what happened. Remember that word ‘lame’, there is a reason the Brothers Grimm used it in their version of the story.

This is exactly what the ancient texts say happened in Egypt. This is the true story the patriarch religions have been hiding. Upper and Lower Egypt were fighting about religion. The Lower Egyptians wanted one god. The Upper Egyptians said “No, we like all our gods and goddesses thank you”. The Upper Egyptians paid the Lower Egyptians to leave. They agreed on a price, but when it was time for the Lower Egyptians to go, the Upper Egyptians didn’t give them all the money. So the Lower Egyptians went through out Egypt and killed all the Upper Egyptian children. They tore up the Great Pyramid. All the white limestone came down like a land slide. They took the white limestone and used it to build things where they settled. In Judea!!!!!!! This is the story of Moses in the bible!(see Patriarch Pharaohs) Even the Koran says that because they were not paid their full amount of the money, they caused all this death and destruction. This is what the base of religion is built on. If I don’t get my way I will just kill people and destroy things!!! And we wonder why this world is so screwed up!

The name of the Pied Piper is also giving away that it is an Egyptian story. Pied means having various colors, but the scribes like using words that have more than one meaning. If you take the word pied in the mathematical sense, it refers to Pi or 3.14. The Great Pyramid was built using Pi, so this is showing yet again it is a story about Egypt and the Great Pyramid. The word lame can mean ‘crippled or physically disabled’, but it also means ‘a person who is out of touch with modern fads or trends’. The Brothers Grimm used this word for the latter meaning. Modern fad and trends has always been religion. I am the lame boy who is telling you what really happened.

One last thing that was bugging me that I finally found. Why would the scribes put this story in Hamelin? I know it was named after a Royal Saxon family, but a lot of towns were named after royalty. In a book about ancient Egyptian magic, I found that Hame means ‘great carpenters’. Lin is just what it says ‘line of or descendant of’. So Hamelin would be ‘line of the great carpenters’. Carpenters being Masons. It is why they call Jesus a carpenter in the bible.(See His Royal Jesus) Modern Masonry is from Egypt, so this is pointing once again to Egypt.

Lemongrass Benefits to Support Your Health – Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is a perennial herb with a distinct, lemony aroma and flavor. It’s a staple of both Vietnamese and Thai cuisine. Though the plant is native to India, it’s grown all over the world today. Lemongrass is a rich source of nutrients that offer many therapeutic benefits.

Lemongrass Quick Facts
Scientific Names There are over fifty different species of lemongrass including Cymbopogon citratus (ornamental lemongrass), Cymbopogon nardus (Citronella), Cymbopogon flexuosus (Cochin or Malabar grass), and others.
Family Poaceae
Origin India and other Asian countries.
Health Benefits Provides antioxidants, supports the immune system, deters insects and other harmful organisms.
Common Uses Cooking, tea, perfume, cosmetics, medicine, and aromatherapy.
Benefits of Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a source of beneficial phytochemicals and specialized nutrients that support the body’s response to harmful organisms, boost the immune system and promote overall wellness. Although the balance of nutrients may vary slightly from one variety to the next, in general, lemongrass provides antioxidants like isoorientin, orientin, caffeic acid, and chlorogenic acid; all of which help halt the damaging action of free radicals. Caffeic acid, in particular, may neutralize free radical action up to 85%.
1. Supports the Body’s Response to Harmful Organisms

Some of the phytochemicals found in lemongrass are resistant to harmful organisms. Two of which, geraniol and nerol, are effective against a broad spectrum of harmful organisms. Another citral targets candida, specifically.

Lemongrass may also be effective against entire colonies of organisms known as biofilms. A biofilm is a thin, slimy, continuous collection of organisms that adheres to a surface with the help of proteins and sugar. Dental plaque on teeth is a common example of a biofilm.
2. Promotes Normal Immune System Response

Lemongrass encourages a normal, balanced immune system response—not one that’s over reactive and ends up doing more harm than good. In that way, lemongrass may protect healthy cells and help soothe irritated tissue. Lemongrass contains two antioxidants, geraniol, and nerol, that belong to a class of phytochemicals called monoterpenes. These phytochemicals influence the immune response. Citral also affects immune response by discouraging the body from producing cytokines—proteins that cause inflammation. Geraniol and citral also work in tandem to discourage the proliferation of malfunctioning cells and encourage the body to detoxify itself of them.
3. Stomach Protection

Your stomach features a protective lining called the mucosal layer that prevents acidic, gastric juices from damaging the interior of the stomach. It’s not uncommon, however, for alcohol or over-the-counter pain relievers like aspirin to upset this protective layer. According to Brazilian folk medicine, lemongrass essential oil may help protect the mucosal layer of the stomach.
4. Encourages Normal Cardiovascular Health

Lemongrass offers a multi-tier approach for supporting cardiovascular health. First, as a source of antioxidants, lemongrass may disrupt the oxidation of fat in the arteries. Second, the citral in lemongrass helps to relax overstressed blood vessels. And, lastly, although more research is necessary to quantify the effects in humans, the results of some animal studies suggest that lemongrass promotes normal cholesterol levels.
5. Deters Insects

Topical or environmental application of lemongrass essential oil has long been used as a mosquito deterrent. You’re probably familiar with the outdoor citronella candles designed to keep mosquitoes at bay. The citronella in those candles is usually sourced from the Cymbopogon winterianus or Cymbopogon nardus varieties of lemongrass. In fact, the mosquito-deterring effects of lemongrass oil are comparable to many chemical repellants such as DEET.
6. Encourages Restful Sleep

Night owls rejoice! If you struggle falling or staying asleep, lemongrass can help. Studies have found that lemongrass may increase sleep duration, encourage dream remembrance, and promote restful sleep.
Tips for Growing Lemongrass

Lemongrass does best in regions 8-11, but you can still grow it indoors if you live in a colder region. Take a stalk of lemongrass and peel off the dry outer layers and discard. Place the skinned stalks upright in a tall glass or jar. Add about 1-2 inches of water to the jar to cover the base of the stalks. Place in a window or another sunny area to encourage root growth. Change the water frequently—about once a day—over the next month. Delicate roots should sprout from the end of the stalks. Once they reach 2 inches, they’re ready to plant.

To plant, dig a hole either in a container or the ground. Gently fill the space around the lemongrass stalk with soil, being careful not to break the roots. Make sure to keep the soil around the plant well hydrated, but not soaked. In 3-4 months, when the plant is well established, you can start harvesting. Cut fresh stalks as needed for tea or recipes. Keep your lemongrass well pruned to encourage consistent harvests. To store, peel off the tough, dry sheath around the harvested stalks, cut to size, and store in a plastic bag in the freezer until needed.
Using Lemongrass

Lemongrass is available fresh, dried, powdered, or as an essential oil. Your intentions will dictate the best form to select. Fresh lemongrass is best for cooking, extracts are commonly found in supplements, and the essential oil has many aromatherapy applications.
Lemongrass Tea Recipe

Lemongrass tea is an easy and excellent way to add lemongrass to your diet. To make a tea with fresh lemongrass stalk, roughly chop three whole stalks, pour 6 cups of almost-boiling water over the fresh lemongrass, and steep for at least 5 minutes. Add raw honey to taste if you prefer a sweet flavor. You can also use dry stalks if you smash them with a tenderizer first and steep for longer—about 10 minutes.
