LIE NUMBER 2: "WCA is a sham organization"


The World Chiropractic Alliance has been in existence since 1989 and has always been active in the chiropractic political and public relations efforts. I'm the first to admit we do not have a huge membership, but the members we have are dedicated and loyal, and come from all over the world, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan Republic of China, Thailand and the United States.

 

We have accomplished far more than many organizations with a larger membership and budgets.



 

Yet, some of my critics say the group isn't legitimate because it has an unusual organizational structure. Most groups fail to get much dome because they have layers of bureaucracy that spend more time forming "task forces" and "committees" than actually doing anything. Their leaders are so focused on getting elected to higher office that they are afraid of taking daring actions.



 

By contrast, the WCA has a small but permanent Executive Board that appoints members of the larger Board of Directors. As founder and permanent president, I cannot be "un-elected" and make many unilateral decisions. I also fund the organization out of my own pocket, rather than rely on constant fundraising efforts for every action we need to take.

 




This is definitely an unconventional way to run a professional organization, but our members are aware of our structure and if they are still willing to become members, why should non-members have a problem with that?



 

Or is their real problem with how much we are able to accomplish using this innovative approach?




 

For the record, WCA members have served on important health-related government committees and panels, including:




 

· Veronica Gutierrez, DC, a member of the WCA Board of Directors, the only chiropractor to serve on the White House Special Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine;




 

· Christopher Kent, DC, a member of the WCA Board of Directors, chairman of the NGO (NonGovernmental Organization) Health Committee, affiliated with the United Nations;




 

· Kristina M. Collins, DC, a member of the WCA International Board of Governors, one of six members appointed by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to its National Advisory Council on Complementary and Alternative Medicine;




 

· Leona Fischer, DC, a member of the WCA International Board of Governors, served on the Veterans Affairs Chiropractic Advisory Committee and was one of only two members to vote against a medical gatekeeper system;




 

· Terry A. Rondberg, DC, WCA President, member of the Department of Defense Chiropractic Advisory Committee.



 

In addition, the WCA was instrumental in having pro-chiropractic legislation introduced into Congress and passing bills such as House Concurrent Resolution 46 that states:




 

We retained one of the capitols most influential professional lobbyists, a man who served on the Board of Directors of the American League of Lobbyists. We lobbed for many important chiropractic related laws and I personally formed positive relationships with many key Washington legislators.

 




On the public relations front, the WCA responded quickly to negative depictions of chiropractic in the media, including newspapers, magazines, syndicated columnists, and television shows. We retained top attorney Carlos Negrete to evaluate all possible legal actions against organizations that use misinformation to defame chiropractic.




 

More than two million copies of WCA patient education books have been printed and distributed under the titles "Chiropractic First," Chiropractic Works, "Chiropractic: Compassion and Expectation," and "Under the Influence of Modern Medicine."

Among the WCAs worldwide efforts and accomplishments:



 

Accreditation as a non-governmental organization (NGO) by the Department of Public Information, affiliated with the United Nations, in December 1998.



 

Sponsored the first NGO workshop on chiropractic, The Role of Chiropractic Care in Global Wellness at the International Conference of NGOs in Korea.



 

Presented the first chiropractic program at UN headquarters in New York City titled, Perspectives on Chiropractic Care in Womens Health and Quality

LIE NUMBER 2: "WCA is a sham organization"

The World Chiropractic Alliance has been in existence since 1989 and has always been active in the chiropractic political and public relations efforts. I'm the first to admit we do not have a huge membership, but the members we have are dedicated and loyal, and come from all over the world, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan Republic of China, Thailand and the United States. I still dont think TR is writing this since hes proven in other rants that he is a very poor scribe. Nonetheless, to whoever is writing this for TR, let me respond to the misleading facts that characterizes TRs form of yellow journalism.First of all, since the WCA never publishes anything about its membership numbers, why should we believe that the WCA has any real members? The last calculation I made on the available number of 250 members that amounts to only 0.0004% of the profession. I challenge TR to hold a membership-wide meeting and take a head count of active members. Secondly, considering TR sends his yellow rag to every DC, after 20+ years of propaganda, youd think hed have thousands of members by now. Apparently despite his sales pitch to free the world of subluxations, not many DCs are biting.Plus, the WCA does nothing but talk periodically, usually when TR has something to sell, such as his latest MLM scheme.We have accomplished far more than many organizations with a larger membership and budgets.Okay, prove it. Just what has the WCA done except obstruct legislation, fought against Unity, made a mockery of its supposedly NGO status, and started research scams like the VSRI and RCS, both of which are defunct now.Far more? Complete nonsense and illustrative of his yellow journalism.

 
Yet, some of my critics say the group isn't legitimate because it has an. Most groups fail to get much dome because they have layers of bureaucracy that spend more time forming "task forces" and "committees" than actually doing anything. Their leaders are so focused on getting elected to higher office that they are afraid of taking daring actions.
Indeed, the WCA isnt legitimate because its unusual organizational structure is that of a dictatorship that never has elections, nor does it have delegates who meet. In fact, the WCA is a figment of TRs imagination that he uses as a ploy to deceive naļve people who are unaware of his many money making schemes.Plus, the ACA, WFC and even the lowly ICA have accomplished more in their history than the WCA can ever do. How insulting for TR to say these groups fail to get much dome (sic) because they have layers of bureaucracy. Indeed, just what has the WCA accomplished? Okay, stop laughing cause its accomplished nothing positiveits merely a thorn in the side of the legitimate groups.
By contrast, the WCA has a small but permanent Executive Board that appoints members of the larger Board of Directors. As founder and permanent president, I cannot be "un-elected" and make many unilateral decisions. I also fund the organization out of my own pocket, rather than rely on constant fundraising efforts for every action we need to take. Indeed, TR owns the WCA, which explains why its not a democratic org with elections.Years ago TR and Kent wrote in the Palmer Beacon newspaper at PCC that their unelected roles were similar to the Supreme Court Justices who were appointed for life, which kept them from responding to political pressure. Well, let me say to TR, the WCA aint no Supreme Court, ya folla?

TR still doesnt understand that a dictatorship by a sociopath wont fly no matter how he paints it, which explains why the ACAs HOD passed a Resolution shunning this bogus president for life of the WCA. Logon to ACA Resolution Denouncing WCA as sham organization


This is definitely an unconventional way to run a professional organization, but our members are aware of our structure and if they are still willing to become members, why should non-members have a problem with that?
Sounds like Castro, doesnt it? Why should Americans be mad that Cubans cant vote for their leadership? Why, you dont see them complaining, do you? Its hard to hear anyone when they have no voice. If this doesnt illustrate his megalomania, what will?

Or is their real problem with how much we are able to accomplish using this innovative approach? Holy Cow! What has the WCA accomplished using this innovative approach? Again, the WCA and its so-called accomplishments are merely figments of his delusional imagination.

 

Okay, TR, if youve actually accomplished something real, not merely rhetoric, please list them for all to read.


 For the record, WCA members have served on important health-related government committees and panels, including:
 From my recollection, the way TR gets his few WCA sycophants appointed to anything is to pay big bucks in donations.

 

· Veronica Gutierrez, DC, a member of the WCA Board of Directors, the only chiropractor to serve on the White House Special Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine;So, what did she add to this Commission that improved our profession? Nothing.

· Christopher Kent, DC, a member of the WCA Board of Directors, chairman of the NGO (NonGovernmental Organization) Health Committee, affiliated with the United Nations;
Again, what did Kent do other than try to sell his Sub Station? And why did Kent quit your WCA board, TR? Why did you not mention this important detail?· Kristina M. Collins, DC, a member of the WCA International Board of Governors, one of six members appointed by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine to its National Advisory Council on Complementary and Alternative Medicine;Who the hell is she? If shes so wonderful, why hasnt she appeared or presented at ACC-RAC? Actually, why doesnt TR appear there any more? Of course, the last time he did appear, he was so obnoxious and offensive, one important RAC leader called his performance, horrible.
 
· Leona Fischer, DC, a member of the WCA International Board of Governors, served on the Veterans Affairs Chiropractic Advisory Committee and was one of only two members to vote against a medical gatekeeper system;

 

Even when the WCA phonies are appointed, none of their recommendations are accepted, as we saw in the DVA committee where his lackey, Leona Fischer, insisted that Kents Sub Station be mandated in all VA facilities. Once the rest of the committee stopped laughing after her third attempt to have the VA committee endorse it, Dr. Paul Shekelle of RAND fame couldnt hold back any longer and blasted her to the effect: "Leona, the AHCPR Guidelines a report endorsed by the federal government came out and said that both SEMG and thermography were unreliable tests.  Yet, you insist that the VHA, another federal agency, come out and formally recommend them for use.  It will simply not happen while Im sitting here!"


· Terry A. Rondberg, DC, WCA President, member of the Department of Defense Chiropractic Advisory Committee.So, TR, what have you accomplished other than donate $25,000 to the RNC to get on this committee and your photo taken with George Dubya?

 
In addition, the WCA was instrumental in having pro-chiropractic legislation introduced into Congress and passing bills such as House Concurrent Resolution 46 that states:
 What is it? If TR thinks federal legislation language comes from the WCA, hes nuts. Nothing on Capitol Hill happens until the ACA, ACC, and sometimes the ICA, approve it first. As Jerry McAndrews once told me, the legislators know who the loonies are.We retained one of the capitols most influential professional lobbyists, a man who served on the Board of Directors of the American League of Lobbyists. We lobbed (sic) for many important chiropractic related laws and I personally formed positive relationships with many key Washington legislators. Giving them money and having a photo taken with them is nothing, TR. As you proved, any schmuck can do that. Again, these legislators know more about you than you think, and they know you are a loony, ya folla?

On the public relations front, the WCA responded quickly to negative depictions of chiropractic in the media, including newspapers, magazines, syndicated columnists, and television shows. We retained top attorney Carlos Negrete to evaluate all possible legal actions against organizations that use misinformation to defame chiropractic.
Oh, Im glad TR broached the WCA Chiro Anti-Defamation Fund since strong allegations from former WCA insiders tell me this is actually the TR Anti-Defamation Fund. Indeed, other than a few letters written by Negrete, what has this fund accomplished, how much has been donated, and where is the public accounting? We may find out shortly since the IRS has been notified about this scam.

More than two million copies of WCA patient education books have been printed and distributed under the titles "Chiropractic First," Chiropractic Works, "Chiropractic: Compassion and Expectation," and "Under the Influence of Modern Medicine."
Sadly, this yellow journalism is more a black eye than a help. Plus, did TR actually write these books, (okay, stop laughing) or did Barbara Bingham?  Logon tohttp://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=24499&p=3&topicID=19083328to learn that TR has used Bingham to write his books and his yellow rag.Among the WCAs worldwide efforts and accomplishments:Okay, here comes the misinformation, the spin, and the propaganda! Accreditation as a non-governmental organization (NGO) by the Department of Public Information, affiliated with the United Nations, in December 1998.
Logon to NGO and Violation of NGO Status to learn that the WCA NGO status is nothing more than an advertising ploy since the WCA has never actually gone into a disaster to render help to victims. TR has used it as a marketing tool to impress, but its really a ruse.

 

Sponsored the first NGO workshop on chiropractic, The Role of Chiropractic Care in Global Wellness at the International Conference of NGOs in Korea.So, what came of this? Nothing! It was an example of giving a talk, then telling the world how powerful the WCA is when, in fact, the WFC is the international org that does work with over 80+ legitimate national orgs, not the WCA that may have a few maverick members from other countries.

 
Presented the first chiropractic program at UN headquarters in New York City titled, Perspectives on Chiropractic Care in Womens Health and Quality


So, again, what became of this? Absolutely nothing but PR for TR.If TR wants to prove the WCA is not a sham org, then show us the numbersmembership, income, delegates, elections, and actual achievements, not merely text.Nonetheless, were all waiting for the THIRD LIE ABOUT TR. If its as humorous as the first two, Ill wait with bated breath, ya folla?

Part Four of Eight: Whos Looking Out for Chiropractors?

 

ChiropracTICs Sock Puppets

 

sock puppet n. [Usenet: from the act of placing a sock over your hand and talking to it and pretending it's talking back] In Usenet parlance, a pseudonym through which the puppeteer posts follow-ups to their own original message to give the appearance that a number of people support the views held in the original message.

 

The ChiropracTIC Coalition headed by Rondberg is an example of a sock puppet organization headed by just a few cohorts who prop themselves up as composed of major chiropracTIC organizations, when, in fact, all totaled together they are smaller than many state associations, and certainly smaller than the ACA or WFC. In reality, this Coalition is only a handful of chiropracTORs who stand to profit by this bogus coalition. Throughout the propaganda disseminated by the Chiro Coalition, weve seen repeatedly the sock puppet method of enhancing its image and, thereby, creating a strong case for alleged misrepresentation.
