NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Allows Bizarre Retaliation Against Famous NY Times Whistle-Blower

NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo allows bizarre and demeaning retaliation against NY Times Whistle-blower Jeffrey Monsour -reporting to work at a tree

Gov. Cuomo reneges on his promise to promote State Whistle-blower from hostile work environment and instead allows years of continual retaliation

This is how the Cuomo administration reacts when a New York State employee exposes Abuse, Taxpayer Waste, Mismanagement, and the Fleecing of BILLIONS of Americas Medicaid dollars”

— NY Times Whistle-blower Jeffrey Monsour

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mr. Jeffrey Monsour is a hero and champion for the most vulnerable; he has suffered greatly for simply doing what is right and just to protect innocent children and adults with disabilities from severe harm or premature death. Mr. Monsour became famous years ago for bringing to light to the New York Times documents that he obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) revealing the regular recycling of people that abuse people with disabilities within a corrupt mental health care system http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/nyregion/13homes.html. The massive award winning in depth New York Times "Abused and Used" investigative reporting series was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html?mcubz=3. Instead of moving swiftly to put major legislative reforms in place to stop and prevent the rampant physical and sexual abuse and deaths of people with disabilities occurring within New York State's extremely dangerous mental health care system, Governor Cuomo chose to continue to ignore what was going on behind closed doors, set up his own discriminatory internal reporting agency that bypasses the 911 call systems and normal criminal justice system and go after whistle-blowers. Mr. Monsour is an amazing person and advocate, one of the finest, he has exposed numerous life threatening systemic problems that the Cuomo administration has refused to address and stop that directly endanger the safety, health and lives of countless vulnerable people with disabilities and he has suffered horrendous retaliation.

The bizarre retaliation tactics were just brought to new low levels when Mr. Monsour was directed by his supervisor to report to a mailbox screwed to a tree. The Capital District local Times Union paper just brought this incredibly disturbing story to light http://m.timesunion.com/news/article/Whistleblowing-OPWDD-employee-goes-not-to-12233350.php?cmpid=email-mobile

"This is how the Cuomo administration reacts when a New York State employee exposes Abuse, Taxpayer Waste, Mismanagement, and the fleecing of BILLIONS of Americas Medicaid dollars. If you dare seek justice in court the Cuomo administration will spend countless taxpayer dollars on attorneys in hopes of concealing the truth from the jury." – Jeffrey Monsour

One of the largest and most deadly matters that Mr. Monsour asked the State to do was to radon test their facilities and group homes to protect the disabled and his fellow workers. New York State acknowledged they knew of these dangers but ignored Mr. Monsour and the immediate safety, health and lives of hundreds of thousands of residents and State and private caregivers. New York State's failure to radon test and mitigate known dangerous mental health facilities and group homes has cost many people their lives. Radon gas is odorless, radon gas is extremely dangerous, radon gas is deadly. Radon gas and is the number two cause for lung cancer killing 21,000 nationally every year, many hundreds in New York State. What will it take for New York State to simply do what is right and provide safe care and services for people with disabilities? One of the other significant life threatening systemic problems within the New York State mental health care system is the falsifying of fire drills records and false claims that staff were able to get residents with disabilities out of a group home in a timely and safe manner. Mr. Monsour's appeals to the top were ignored and soon after four former Willowbrook residents that came out of a horrible abusive Willowbrook State Institution, which became nationally known because of the horrors that were exposed there by Geraldo Rivera, died in a group home fire. When "life or death" matters are ignored and the safety of our most vulnerable is not the number one concern and whistle-blowers such as Mr. Monsour are treated with scorn and disdain, obviously people will die due to the gross negligence. A well known civil rights attorney taught me that this is considered "gross and deliberate indifference" or in other words, who the hell cares if this specific group of people live or die, we do not care, and people die as a result. People that believe this way have no business being in any position of authority; they are an extreme danger to innocent people with disabilities that rely on other to care for them with excellence. Massive reforms must take place in New York State's mental health care system, currently 7,800 calls are being reported to Governor Cuomo's wrongfully named and fraudulently operated Justice Center abuse hotline for the disabled that keeps almost everything from the local police. Let me say this again, 7,800 reports a month, these numbers are massive, they are astronomical and the deaths occurring in this unsafe system are between 11 and 13 every single day. Governor Cuomo's top officials are keeping most deaths from being reported to County elected District Attorney's and Medical Examiners which is illegal and allowing State and private providers to investigate deaths occurring in their own facilities and group homes. This is why whistle-blowers like Jeffrey Monsour and many others are retaliated against in such ways and pushed out. Mr. Monsour has stood his ground and refused to allow the State of New York to destroy him financially, to destroy his impeccable reputation of caring for our most vulnerable and is taking the State to federal court in November. The horrors and gross negligence will continue to surface until Governor Cuomo and his negligent agencies are sincerely reformed and finally made safe.

What is important now is that Governor Cuomo's schemes are exposed and that the 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities are finally provided much better and safer services and the justice they deserve with the billions of America's federal Medicaid dollars coming into New York State annually. Federal law US Code 42 Section 15009 says very clearly that these funds are only to go to programs that are free from abuse and neglect, not to New York State programs and facilities that are rampant with abuse and neglect. Thank God for amazing whistle-blowers like Jeff Monsour.

Women Veterans Are Changing The Discussion Around Homelessness

The Woman Beyond the Uniform

Catherine Bach

Maj. Jas Boothe, Founder, Ms. Veteran America and Final Salute Inc.

An estimated 55,000 women veterans are homeless in the United States. Ms. Veteran America 2017 Opens October 8th at Liaison Hotel in Washington, DC.

These women have stepped forward to become a voice for a population of forgotten veterans who feel as if America isn’t listening to them. ”

— Major Jas Boothe

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — An estimated 55,000 women veterans are homeless in the United States. These women take an oath to defend our country, only to return home from war to not have suitable assistance in place to help them make the transition from combat to civilian life. The Ms. Veteran America competition has been changing lives since October 2012.

The 25 finalists for Ms. Veteran America 2017, Presented by Cognosante, represent every branch of the United States military, will take the stage on Sunday, October 8th at 6:00pm at the Liaison Hotel in Washington, DC. One lucky woman veteran will accept the title of Ms. Veteran America 2017 and will travel the country advocating for homeless women veterans and their children.

Not only does Ms. Veteran America advocate for homeless women veterans and their children, but she serves as a role model, teaching and empowering young women to support, inspire and lift-up one another. Proceeds from the Ms. Veteran America competition supports the national nonprofit, Final Salute Inc. (www.finalsaluteinc.org), provide housing for homeless women veterans and their children. To date, Final Salute Inc. has supported over 3,600 Women Veterans and their children in over 30 states and territories, provided over 12,000 housing days and raised over $2 million to support to homeless women veterans and their children.

Jas Boothe (CNN Hero and Oprah Winfrey Standing Ovation Recipient) is the founder of Ms. Veteran America and Final Salute Inc. She was prompted to start Final Salute Inc. and bring attention to the fastest growing segment of the homeless demographic in America, women veterans, when she was made aware that no other resources existed for them and their children. Jas was homeless during 2005-2006, due to Hurricane Katrina and her battle with head, throat and neck cancer. No resources existed to help her during that challenging time. Boothe set out to make changes.

"Historically, it has always been women who have brought about change for other women; women veteran issues will also take such an approach. All of these women have stepped forward to become a voice for a population of forgotten veterans who feel as if America isn’t listening to them. These women are the epitome of what it means to “never leave a fallen comrade,” said Major Boothe.

The 2017 Ms. Veteran America competition Master of Ceremonies and Celebrity Co-Host is actor Lamman Rucker – a DC native – of the hit series “Greenleaf” on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The Mistress of Ceremonies is Marissa Strock, Purple Heart Recipient, Combat Disabled Veteran, Glamputee and comedian.

The Keynote Speaker is Catherine Bach, Daisy Duke (Dukes of Hazard), and Special Guest, Nicole "Fifi" Malachowski, the first female Thunderbird Pilot.

Special honors will be presented to HomeAid Northern Virginia, Van Metre, Winchester Homes and the Home Depot Foundation for their support of Final Salute Inc. and the homeless women veterans and children they serve and support.

Other supporters include 4-Star Sponsor, CACI and Salute Sponsor, Grimmer Technology & Operations, Inc.

The 2017 Ms. Veteran America competition will be held October 8th at 6:00pm at the Liaison Hotel in Washington, DC. Event tickets may be purchased at  https://mva2017.eventbrite.com 


About Ms. Veteran America
The Ms. Veteran American competition highlights more than the strength, courage and sacrifice of our nation’s military women – it also reminds us that these women are mothers, daughter, sisters and wives. Ms. Veteran America is also a role model, teaching and empowering young women and girls to support, inspire and uplift one another. The Ms. Veteran America competition has assisted Final Salute Inc. in raising $330,000 to combat homelessness among women veterans. www.ms.veteranamerica.org

Kurdish Referendum inspires hope among Eelam Tamils: TGTE

Kurdish Ambassador to U.S. Ms. Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman and V. Rudrakumaran, Prime Minister, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE)

ERBIL, KURDISTAN, September 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) congratulates the people of Kurdistan on their recent success in conducting a referendum in their homeland and among the Kurdish diaspora.

The Kurdistan people were subjected to genocide under the regime of Saddam Hussein. Notably, during Saddam’s genocidal Anfel campaign between 1986 and 1989, tens of thousands of Kurds were killed. The Kurds’ claim for an independent state intensified as a result of the above and as a form of seeking remedial justice.

The Kurds did not give up their claim for an independent state as a form of remedial justice after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. They neither relied on the goodwill and/or the “good governance” of the new regime after Saddam Hussein, nor they modified their political aspirations. They attributed the international crimes rightly on the state itself, and chose to secede from it. As Peter W. Galbraith, a former American diplomat aptly put it: “Would you want to be part of a country that committed genocide against you?”

Holding Referendums as a means to determine the political future of a people is a clear act of democracy. As the Kurdish leadership repeatedly stated, independence is not followed immediately upon referendums. Referendums entail dialogue between and among the relevant stakeholders. As demonstrated by the Iraqi Government and the regional and international powers,through their willingness to make concessions short of an independent state,the bargaining power of the referendum or even the efforts of having a referendum become quite evident.

What is remarkable in the Kurdistan Referendum is the unwavering determination and steadfastness of the Kurdistan President Barzani. Not only the Iraqi Government but also the regional and international powers and the international institutions threatened them with economic sanctions and military action if they proceeded with the referendum. The Iraqi Supreme Court declared that the referendum was illegal and unconstitutional. The Bagdad Government threatened to use military force if holding the referendum provoked violence. The referendum was also held in oil rich and contested area of Kirkuik where Arabs and Tuckerman also live. Turkey moved their tanks towards the border of Kurdistan which unlike the putative Tamil Eelam is a landlocked country. Iran closed its air space. The U.S. warned that diplomatic support and assistance for Kurdistan might be curtailed if they proceeded with the referendum. The UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said it would also undermine reconstruction efforts and he asked the Kurdistan leadership to scrap the referendum plan. However, Kurdish leadership, taking into account the history of their struggle since World War I and the betrayal of the international powers, stated “Kurds know no one will protect us, but ourselves.”

The Kurdistan referendum illustrates the emerging reality that non-state actors could independently create facts on the ground. It is to be noted here also that, in 1991, the then U.S. President George W. Bush warned Ukraine against the breakup of the Soviet Union and the U.S. State Department made a statement following the referendum held in Croatia that the U.S. was committed to protect the territorial integrity of Yugoslavia. Today, both Ukraine and Croatia are independent states, have friendly relationship with the U.S. It also should be noted that today the U.S. provides defensive weapons to Ukraine to protect itself against Russian expansion.

During the celebration following the referendum, the present Kurdish Ambassador to the U.S, Ms. Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman, made the remark that President Barzani was like a rock.

If we, as Eelam Tamils, also retained a rock solid faith in our freedom, the day when the flag of Tamil Eelam flutters in front of the UN cannot be far away.

Rohingya Refugees Attacked by Sri Lankan Buddhist Monks as Government Threatened to Deport. TGTE urges UN to Protect

Budhist Monks thereaten Rohingya refugees as Police looked on

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, September 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) today urged UN to intervene urgently to protect Rohingya Muslim refugees in Sri Lanka, where they are under attack by Buddhist Monks.

Several Sri Lankan Buddhist monks stormed a United Nations safe house for Rohingya refugees near Sri Lanka’s capital on Tuesday. Saffron-robed Buddhist monks led a mob that broke down gates and entered the walled multi-storied compound as frightened refugees huddled together in upstairs rooms, a police official said. Not a single Buddhist monk was arrested.

“These are Rohingya terrorists who killed Buddhist monks in Myanmar,” the monk said in his live commentary on Facebook, pointing to Rohingya mothers with small children in their arms.

Sri Lanka’s Buddhist monks have very close links with their counterparts in Myanmar. Both have been accused of orchestrating violence against minority Muslims in the two countries.

Earlier, Sri Lanka Prime Minister threatened to deport these Rohingya refugees, saying “ They can go to neighboring countries like Bangladesh and Thailand."

A UN report in February 2017 claims the Myanmar army’s campaign targeting the Rohingya involved mass killings, gang rapes and the burning down of villages, likely amounting to crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing.

NorthTexasFamilies.org Delivers Families Access Most Comprehensive Database for Social Services and Resources


Dallas’ 116-year-old nonprofit, ChildCareGroup, launches NTXF, a comprehensive mobile website database to connect families with resources and social services.

ChildCareGroup uses a holistic, two generation approach in our work with families. By providing quality early child education along with access to services needed to be healthy and self-sufficient.”

— Tori Mannes, CEO ChildCareGroup

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Children do better when parents do better. And when families succeed, the community thrives. This vision is the motivation behind NorthTexasFamilies.org (NTXF). Founded by Dallas’ 116-year-old nonprofit, ChildCareGroup, NTXF is a comprehensive database in the form of a mobile-friendly website connecting families with resources, services and benefits. NTXF provides information on community resources from: early childhood programs, education, parenting support, health, food, transportation, finance, work and legal services. There is no comparable tool in the area giving families a central access point to all of these services.
Prior to NorthTexasFamilies.org, families and service providers would become frustrated and discouraged trying to piece together accurate information on community resources that could help them build healthy and productive lives.
“ChildCareGroup uses a holistic, two generation approach in our work with young children and their families. Providing children with a quality early education is not enough; we must also ensure that their parents have access to the other services and resources they need to be healthy and more self-sufficient, stated ChildCareGroup CEO, Tori Mannes. “NorthTexasFamilies.org provides a solution for parents who need to find services for their families and for the social workers or case managers at area nonprofits who wish to refer their clients to other community agencies. We look forward to working with our nonprofit partners to expand the NTXF site and collaborate more strategically to improve the lives of North Texas families,” continued Mannes.
Established in 1901, ChildCareGroup's mission is to promote, deliver and expand the best early care and education programs for children, parents and early childhood professionals. Over the years, the organization realized that families face many separate but related challenges that impact their ability to achieve greater self sufficiency. For example, without reliable transportation and access to affordable child care, how can a parent sustain a job or pursue an education? The sharp decline in median income, lack of affordable housing and transportation has resulted in more neighborhoods with concentrated poverty.
According to Mayor Rawlings’s Task Force on Poverty, Dallas families are facing poverty.
• 31% of Dallas County children are living in poverty
• Over 50% of Dallas households make less than $50,000 per year (of which 28% make less than $25,000 per year)
• 48% of Dallas County residents have a high school diploma or less
• 61% of Dallas County households are single-parent homes

ChildCareGroup created the comprehensive database using the technology of Austin-based company, Aunt Bertha, and customized search categories to specifically serve families. Users may search the site by city, county, zip code or area of need. The search results provide program and contact information on service providers throughout North Texas. Funding for NorthTexasFamilies.org was provided by Carl & Florence E. King Foundation and Communities Foundation of Texas. ChildCareGroup will partner with providers throughout North Texas to continually update their information on the site so to better serve families and increase community impact.

குர்திஷ்தானின் பொதுசன வாக்கெடுப்பு ஈழத்தமிழர்களுக்கு உற்சாகத்தினை தந்துள்ளது : பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன்

With Kurdish Ambassador to US

NEW YORK, US, September 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

குர்திஷ்தானின் பிராந்தியத்திய மக்களது பொதுசன வாக்கெடுப்பு,சுயநிர்ணய உரிமைக்காக போராடி வரும் ஈழத்தமிழர்களுக்கு புதிய நம்பிக்கையினையையும் உற்சாகத்தினையும் தந்துள்ளதாக நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

ஈராக்கின் சுயாட்சி பிராந்தியமான குர்திஸ்தான் மக்கள் தமது தனிநாட்டுக்கான பொதுசன வாக்கெடுப்பினை ஞாயிற்றுக்கிழமையன்று நடத்தியிருந்தனர்.

ஈராக்க, துருக்கி, சிரியா ஆகிய நாடுகளது கடுமையான நெருக்கடிகளுக்கு மத்தியில் வெற்றிகரமாக நடத்தி முடிக்கப்பட்ட பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பில் வெற்றிக் கொண்டாட்டங்கள் உலகெங்கும் உள்ள குர்திஷ்தான் அமைப்புக்களினாலும் மக்களினாலும் முன்னெடுக்கப்பட்டிருந்தது.

அமெரிக்காவின் நியு யோர்கில் அமைந்துள்ள குர்திஷ்தான் தூதரகத்தின வெற்றிக் கொண்டாட்டத்தில் பங்கெடுத்திருந்த நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்கள், குர்திஷ்தான் மக்களுக்கும் குர்திஷ்தான் தேசத்துக்கும் ஈழத்தமிழர் தேசத்தினதும் மக்களினதும் வாழ்த்துக்களை தெரிவித்துக் கொண்டார்.

குர்திஷ்தானின் தூதுவர் Ms. Bayan Sami Abdul Rahman அவர்களுக்கு பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின்
தோழமையினையையும் தெரிவித்துக் கொண்டார்.

மேலும் பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்கள், குர்திஷ்தான் தொலைக்காட்சி ஒன்றுக்கு கருத்துரை ஒன்றினை வழங்கையில், ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்களது அரசியல் தீர்வுக்கான பொறிமுறையாக பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு ஒன்றினை வலியுறுத்தும் "YES TO REFERENDUM"எனும் இயக்கதினை நாம் முன்னெடுத்து வருகின்றோம்.

தமிழீழம் உள்ளடங்கியதான அனைத்து தீர்வுத் திட்டங்களையும் உள்ளடக்கி, தங்களது அரசியல் எதிர்காலம் குறித்து, அவர்கள் தெரிவு செய்யும் உரிமையினைப் பயன்படுத்தும் வகையில் ஈழத் தமிழ்மக்களிடத்தில் பொது வாக்கெடுப்பு நடத்த வேண்டும் என்பதே அதன் பிரதான விடயமாக உள்ளது.

தமிழீழமாக அமையும் இலங்கைத்தீவின் வடகிழக்கு பகுதியில் சட்டபூர்வமாக வாழுகின்ற மக்களிடயேயும், தமிழீழத்தினை பூர்வீக தொடர்புடையவர்களாக இலங்கைத் தீவுக்கு வெளியே வாழும் மக்களிடையேயும் இப்பொது வாக்கெடுப்பு நடத்தப்படல் வேண்டும் என்பதும் எமது நிலைப்பாடாக உள்ளது.

இந்நிலையில் குர்திஷ்தான் மக்களது தனிநாட்டுக்கான பொதுசன வாக்கெடுப்பு ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு புதிய நம்பிக்கையினையும் உற்சாகத்தினையும் தந்துள்ளதாக அவர் தெரிவித்தார்.
