Highly Anticipated New Political Thriller, "The Salvation Project," to Launch at National Press Club's Annual Book Fair

Book Life Calls It “Memorable”

Is It Real, Or Is It Fantasy

Rothstein takes high stakes political espionage to a very contemporary, credibly scary, and absolutely addictive level.”

— Pacific Reviews

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — One hundred authors will be on hand at the National Press Club Friday, November 1, for the Club's annual Book Fair. Money raised at the event supports the Club's Journalism Institute and its advocacy for freedom of the press. Doors open to the public for the annual gala at 5:30 p.m.

Among the literary offerings will be Joe Rothstein's highly anticipated new political thriller, "The Salvation Project." Pacific Reviews says "The Salvation Project" conjures memories of great past thrillers, Richard Condon's "Manchurian Candidate," and Steven King's "Dead Zone." But Pacific Reviews adds, "Far from simply imitating those books, Rothstein takes high stakes political espionage to a very contemporary, credibly scary, and absolutely addictive level."

Rothstein's earlier political thriller, "The Latina President and The Conspiracy to Destroy Her," introduced Isabel Aragon Tennyson–"Tenny"–a charismatic Mexican-American heiress as U.S. President. Tenny is back in the "Salvation Project," this time confronted by a more ruthless international conspiracy with a literally killer agenda that would change America forever.

"The Salvation Project" will go on sale generally November 3.

"I'm really pleased that the National Press Club selected 'The Salvation Project,' as one of literary works featured in the Book Fair," said Rothstein. "Support for freedom of the press is vital at any time, and particularly now, when it is under such intense assault in so many parts of the world. Fearless, enterprising journalism has never been more important

Poll Shows Majority of Americans Oppose Wild Horse Roundup Plan as BLM Scapegoating of Wild Horses Provokes Backlash

A terrifying wild horse roundup in action

A terrifying wild horse roundup in action

This dangerous proposal is the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance…upwards of $5 Billion.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New polling released today by the American Wild Horse Campaign finds a strong bipartisan majority of Americans oppose a new plan to round up mass numbers of federally protected wild horses and burros from America’s Western public lands. The plan, which would reduce wild herds by 70%, is currently being touted by Acting Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Director, William Perry Pendley and livestock industry lobbyists, but is opposed by the vast majority of wild horse protection and animal welfare organizations. Pendley is expected to make an appearance at the BLM National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meeting in Washington, DC on Wednesday.

“Our recent polling documents that the nearly three in four Americans oppose the costly and cruel mass roundup and incarceration plan for America’s cherished wild free-roaming horses and burros,” said Suzanne Roy, Executive Director of the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC). “Americans do not want their tax dollars used to clear the public lands of wild horses and burros in order to replace these iconic animals with subsidized commercial livestock.”

“This dangerous proposal is the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance the whole shebang – even the BLM has admitted removals could cost upwards of $5 Billion,” said Marty Irby, Executive Director at Animal Wellness Action and a lifelong horseman. “If this ghastly proposal is executed, we’ll see massive roundups, swelling captive wild horse populations, and jubilation from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association that secured political cover from the Humane Society of the U.S., Humane Society Legislative Fund, and ASPCA for their long-time aspiration to cement a government-funded wild horse depopulation program.”

The Public Policy Polling survey conducted a poll of 686 registered voters on Oct 25-27 last weekend and found:

– 74% of respondents oppose the removal of nearly two-thirds of the wild horses and burros living free on America’s public lands today.

– 78% oppose the holding of tens of thousands of more horses and burros in pens and pastures at taxpayer expense, which could increase pressure to slaughter these animals over the long run.

– 79% of Americans oppose the surgical sterilization of wild mares (female horses) via a procedure that removes their ovaries.

At the same time, conservationists are reacting strongly to BLM chief Pendley’s recent claim that wild horses are “an existential threat” to the public lands, particularly given the fact that 88% of BLM land has no wild horses on it.

In response, Erik Molvar, wildlife biologist and Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Project, wrote, “Pendley’s misstatements about wild horses and the magnitude of environmental threats on the lands that his agency manages speaks either to a monumental incompetence and ignorance, or to an aggressive dishonesty and commitment to a “fake news” approach to informing the public about Western public lands.”

Last week, Molvar – a leading expert on the environmental threats to Western public lands posed by commercial livestock grazing – joined Nevada business leaders and wild horse advocates at a press conference in Reno to address the propaganda campaign being waged against wild horses, stating, “The administration’s obsession with wild horses, while turning a blind eye to the real and serious problems that livestock overgrazing causes on these same lands demonstrates a systematic myopia and willful desire to ignore and perpetuate ecological problems caused by the livestock industry.”

An editorial in last week’s High Country News, a non-profit magazine and news operation dedicated to informing and inspiring people to act on behalf of the West’s natural and human communities, echoed Molvar’s sentiments.

“The real problem with wild horses is that there’s no money to be made from them. And by focusing on them, Pendley hopes to divert our attention from the true threat to public lands: unbridled greed,” the editorial concluded, referencing Pendley’s history of fighting for the “private property rights” of extractive industries (oil/gas/mining/livestock) to exploit the public lands.

According to AWHC, the intensifying propaganda campaign by Pendley and his industry allies against wild horses is aimed at convincing Congress to fund the expensive new plan to clear the public lands of virtually every wild horse and burro remaining wild today. Misleadingly dubbed a “Path Forward for Wild Horse and Burro Management,” the plan would accelerate the removal (by helicopter roundup) of wild mustangs from public lands and allow for inhumane management methods, such as cruel surgeries to sterilize wild mares by ripping out their ovaries. Although billed as a “non-lethal plan,” the proposal actually makes slaughter more likely over the long run by dramatically increasing the number of horses and burros maintained in captivity at taxpayer expense with no guarantee of funding for their long-term care.

The plan is opposed by the vast majority of animal welfare and wild horse protection organizations.

The American Wild Horse Campaign, Animal Wellness Action, and The Cloud Foundation will hold a congressional briefing, Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 12:30 – 1:30 in the House Natural Resources Committee Room, Longworth HOB 1334. Members of the media are encouraged and welcomed to attend.

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) is the nation’s leading wild horse protection organization, with more than 700,000 supporters and followers nationwide. AWHC is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse and burros in viable, free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. In addition to advocating for protection and preservation of America’s wild herds, AWHC implements the largest wild horse fertility control program in the world through a partnership with the State of Nevada for wild horses that live in the Virginia Range near Reno.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

JOHN CONYERS, PROGRESSIVE GIANT — Statement.on His Passing By Former Spokesman Robert Weiner

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Former John Conyers spokesman and lifetime friend, Robert Weiner, put out the following statement on the passing of the former Detroit Congressman in a piece for the Michigan Chronicle.

Weiner begins, “A vignette of memories from Bob Weiner, former Press Secretary/Spokesman for Conyers and his committees, and life time friend later, White House spokesman and now leader of oped writing group that won the National Press Club President's Award for recruiting and mentoring young journalists to co-write with Bob in major papers. They have done 900, including many in the Chronicle.”

He continues, “John Conyers was the most consistent, rational voice for practical progressivism in America. With his low key and steady tone, he always tried to move the bar of logic and accomplishment as far as he could and still win. Here is a vignette of some memories.”

He writes, “When Obama was about to announce and Hillary was far in the lead, I walked into his office and said, "You know Hillary will win." Congressman Conyers said to me, "How do I not support the person who could be the first African American President?" Conyers became the first member of Congress to endorse Obama, and my political wisdom was shown for what it was…”

He goes on, “After AG Janet Reno sent DOJ police into the WACO compound to try to rescue the kids but the crazy leader got everybody to agree to burn the place down and kill everyone, Thew Committee called her to testify. Conyers was Cahir of Government Operations at the Time but the 2nd ranking on Judiciary then. The Gov Ops Chief of Staff did not want to alert the Congressman that AG Reno had arrived for fear of what the congressman would say. There were 20 TV cameras there — everyone — and I as press person knew it was my obligation to tell him and to urge him to come. I went to the office to tell him and he said, "Of course I must go." He proceeded to tell the Attorney General, on camera — I remember as though it was yesterday– "Madam Attorney General, you did exactly the right thing by offering to resign." I went back to my office and hid under my desk but John Conyers, ever the astute leader, called her up and arranged a bonding meeting the next morning and all was well.”

He reports, “Conyers as Judiciary Committee Democratic Leader had to corral Democrats in support of Clinton when the vote was about to happen in his committee to send the impeachment vote to the House. The Republicans had the majority and the votes, my wife and I walked into his office before the vote and the lights were off, while Conyers had somber jazz music playing. That was the sad mood he wanted to amplify before he walked down to the committee room, with, my wife and me in tow.”

He explains, “On the anniversary of Nixon's resignation under the assuredness of an impeachment and conviction, Cong. Conyers was interviewed on major morning TV as someone who was there and on the Judiciary Committee. When asked about Nixon's positive legacy for this and that, Conyers replied, referring to the cover up during Watergate, ‘Aside from that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?’”

He writes, “During the Obamacare ACA vote, since it was close-close-close, Cong Conyers brought all the members of the Congressional Black Caucus, one by one, into his office. I witnessed several of the meetings and many CBC members were saying, ‘But it doesn't go far enough, I'll vote no.’ Conyers had credibility as the author of Medicare-for-All and said, ‘We have to take this step or we'll never get there, and the Medicaid expansion plus benefits expansion to pre-existing conditions, youth covered to 26, and drugs for seniors is huge. There is no way we can pass this up.’ He got at least half of the CBC to vote yes and the bill passed by ONE VOTE.”

He continues, “He always pressed for jobs and full employment. He led weekly meetings in his office strategizing how to fund training, employment, and jobs and infrastructure expansion to get under 5% unemployment. One major accomplishment was that the Federal Reserve Bank (‘The Fed’) was always forgetting they have two proscribed missions in their charter, keep inflation (and interest rates) low AND create jobs. Conyers uniquely among other members wrote a major letter reminder to the Fed about this second part of their mission and the liberal Fed Chairs since have been paying attention to it. It has made a big difference.”

He goes on, “Cong. Conyers was about to have a hearing on ‘Discrimination in prisons’ suggested by the Republicans and the staff had done a write-up on their issues of a big fisherman company guy put in jail for making too much money, and professional biker, a NASCAR racer, and other business people. Conyers asked the staff, ‘What about the African American victims of the drug war with crack-vs-powder at 10-1 penalties, and disproportionate arrests and death penalties.?’ He totally changed the theme of the hearing and the witnesses said he was ‘exactly right.’”

Weiner concludes, “The great muckraking journalist Jack Anderson approached us once and said, ‘We're doing a story on Conyers not investigating corruption because of his contributions.’ We told him, ‘That's a false story, and it's also the last time you'll hear from us. Or you can write about what he is indeed investigating regardless of who's President, about weapons system and government malfunctions, fraud and abuse, and you'll have a lot of good stories.’ Anderson and co-writer Michael Binstock took the deal and wrote at least a dozen individual stories. Then, in a surprise to us all, he wrote a summary story, 'JOHN CONYERS– PERSISTENCE AND POWER.' He got it right.”
