The physician must be able to tell the antecedents, know the present, and foretell the future — must mediate these things, and have two special objects in view with regard to disease, namely, to do good or to do no harm.
Many people believe that the United States government is a Christian institution and that our nation is Christian; however, this is a lie. Many people believe this because it has been taught in schools and has been a theme in our popular culture. This is a deception from the devil.
This can be illustrated by the Unites States government murder of Osama Bin Laden. Osama Bin Laden was used as an archetype villain. The fake narrative was that Osama Bin Laden must be stopped as he is a threat to the lives of United States citizens. This false narrative was carried out by the mainstream news media as well as then-president of the United States, George Bush.
In the minds of the people in the world, Osama Bin Laden must be annihilated at all costs. When it was presented to the American people by Barack Obama that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, many people in the United States celebrated. Barack Obama could be then described as the archetype hero, the person who exhibited goodness and struggled against evil in order to restore harmony and justice to society.
The problem is that Barack Obama is not good, only God is good. As a Christian, Barack Obama is not my protector, only God is my protector. If we look to a “man” to help us then we are being deceived, only God is our help. In fact, one of the tenets of the mafia is to “make good men better.” With spiritual understanding, you are taught that only God is good and it is only through his Spirit that you are able to accomplish “good works.” When a man believes that he is good, in essence, he believes that he is God.
The Bible teaches us not to kill, but the world perceives that those in authority have a right to kill and murder their enemies. That is why “patriotism” is so evil because you are “condoning” the actions of a leader through the belief that your nation is somehow better than another one. My leader and master is the Lord Jesus Christ, not a president, mayor, or governor.
This relates to my upcoming book, “The Government, the Mafia, and Greyhound Bus Lines,” because people who the world believes are in a position of authority; only God has authority, have consistently lied in order that the mafia can accomplish their “end goal.” You may not believe a doctor will lie, you may not believe a judge will lie, you may not believe a police officer will lie, you may not believe a lawyer will lie, but if you believe that you are being deceived. The world is evil but the only way you can “see” is by praying and asking the Lord for his help. God bless you!
The case investigator, Al Mosey closed the case without investigation, thus a “fake investigation.” I called Mr. Mosley when I had received his letter in the mail. The letter is dated July 28, 2016. He asked me to come down to his office the same day in order to give a statement. I did not refuse to give a statement, but I did tell him that I was unavailable to give a statement at that time. He asked when could I come in and take a statement. I told home that I was also unavailable next week, as I had planned a vacation.
I asked if he could take a phone interview to which he stated that he could not. I told Mr. Mosey a date that I could call him after my vacation. He agreed to the date. However, when I called him on the agreed date and multiple times afterward he did not answer my phone call. I left him several voicemail messages. When I was finally able to talk to him, he stated, “I talked to my supervisor, and we decided to close the case.” I told Mr. Mosey that I knew that the department was not going to investigate the case but I must be obedient to the Lord.
Somehow between Mr. Mosey and his supervisor, this was taken to mean that I did not want to have the case investigated. How could this be? I called the investigator and agreed upon a date. Should I have canceled my vacation in order for him to take my statement?
In order to ascertain this document, I sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Department of Labor. At first, it was denied but upon appeal, I was given the case document.
You can read in the repository of documents here.
It can be seen that on page four of this document that the investigator wrote, “…Case was opened based on a [redacted] from Lewis Seals who stated that he believed he was owed $3500 for miscellaneous issues with his employer…. WHI attempted the contact the [redacted] on two separate [occasions]. Both via phone on July 26, and July 28, 2016. WHI also attempted to contact the [redacted] via mail on July 26th and July 28th with a return call notification no later than [August] 5th. Since no response, I recommend the case be drop.”
Now if the Department of Labor will not even investigate a wage theft complaint that I submitted. What are the odds that they will also try to sweep the whistleblower case under the rug? OSHA, Occupational Safety and Health Administration is under the umbrella of the of the Department of Labor.
Greyhound supervisors are also motivated to have a full staff to minimize complaints. Greyhound Bus Lines passengers can become angry and upset if they are held at the bus terminal for long periods of time. This can become frustrating for anyone, if you had to deal with complaints from individuals about issues outside of your control. Greyhound Bus Lines supervisors use different tactics to make sure that their complement is full, but some of these tactics are against the law.
On or about July 18, I had a meeting with Greyhound supervisors Sherryl Tucker and Faye Willis. I requested to have a leave of absence, and it was denied. I asked both Sherryl Tucker and Faye Willis what did I need to do to get a leave of absence. I explained to them that I was getting harassed by fellow drivers and needed a month off from work. The reason for the harassment was due to Greyhound Bus Line policy of, “On-Time Performance.” A select group of drivers believed that because I was making it to my destinations on time or before time that I was taking money off their route. In essence, they believed I was stealing money from them. This is a complex issue to explain, but it goes back to Greyhound Bus Lines not paying their employees fairly. After being denied, I ask both of them if I needed to write a letter in order to get the leave of absence. Sherryl Tucker stated that it is the “nature of the beast," and it would be the same when I came back.
In the warning letter, Faye Willis quotes Sherryl Tucker, “Sherryl Tucker told you that it would be irresponsible of her to give you that time off because it will not be good for the company.”
A copy of this letter has been uploaded to the “repository of documents” here.
According to the agreement between Greyhound Lines, Inc. and the Amalgamated Transit Union, “Employees may be granted an unpaid leave of absence of up to 90 days without loss of seniority. Longer leave may be granted if mutually agreed to by the Company and the Union. Employees requesting leaves under this provision must submit a written request to their supervisor and will specify that the request for leave be under this provision.”
I was not granted a “leave of absence” but in compromise, both Sherryl Tucker and Faye Willis gave me a “few days” off work. It is not uncommon for a Greyhound Bus driver to work weeks without getting a day off. After working a “long stretch of days,” I booked off “fatigue” because I could not safety operate a Greyhound bus.
In the Lewis Seals’ complaint to OSHA he writes:
On August 4, 201, Faye Willis, driver supervisor for Greyhound Bus Lines, Inc., issued Complainant two letters of warning for using fatigue as a subterfuge to avoid work (absenteeism). It is believed that Willis issued the letters of warning because she thought Complainant’s claim of fatigue was a suspicious pretense to get more time off. The two letters arrived on the same day and they were threatening in nature. The letters stated that Complainant was to report to a meeting at the Memphis terminal with union representation......
Thus Complainant alleges that Greyhound Bus Lines, Inc. violated the STAA’s employee protection provisions when it issued him two warning letters for refusing to drive due to fatigue. Complainant asserts that “booking off” fatigue is reasonable, and that he engaged in STAA protected activity according to, “Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation 392.3” that states, “No driver shall operate a motor vehicle nor can a motor carrier require or permit a driver to operate a motor vehicle, while the driver’s ability or alertness is so impaired. [sic]” Accordingly, Greyhound Bus Lines, Inc. issued the two warning letters not based on a good faith mistake of fact but on the doctrine of “unclean hands.” The letters had an effect on Complainant’s pay, terms, and conditions of employment; it did qualify as discipline, discrimination, and harassment.
A copy of Lewis Seals’ OSHA complaint can be read here.
The law behind The Surface Transportation Assistance Act can be read in a letter that was written to Faye Willis after Greyhound Bus Lines refused to let Lewis Seals come back to work after “booking off” fatigue.

In order to gain exposure, I must go to traditional media outlets. One such outlet is PRWEB. I submitted my press release to them, and they refused it based on their policy and procedures. It is important to note that they can refuse any press release at their discretion. However, after my press release was placed on hold and subsequently denied after making the edits that they deemed necessary, one might question their motive. Is PRWEB under political pressure not to publish press releases from Lewis Seals or Lewis Seals Publishing? Does this type of thing actually happen? I cannot speculate on this issue; however, I have uploaded the edits that they wanted me to make and their ultimate denial.
The edits that they wanted me to make, and the denial e-mail have been uploaded to the “repository of documents” and can be read at the links below.
Ultimately, I was able to submit the press release to a lesser-known brand prlog.org. The link to the press release is here. The wording has not changed from the PRWEB release. You may also read it below:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - June 17, 2017 - PRLog -- Lewis Seals, the owner of Lewis Seals Publishing, and a former Greyhound bus driver has decided to take his whistleblower complaint straight to the public after inaction from the federal government. Lewis Seals filed a whistleblower complaint with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) against Greyhound Bus Lines on or about September 10, 2016.
The OSHA case styled Lewis Seals v. Greyhound Bus Lines, (4-1760-17-015) alleged that Greyhound Bus Lines illegally violated the employee protection provisions of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982 (STAA). The complaint further alleges that Greyhound Bus Lines has created a "climate" where a bus driver may drive a bus fatigued for "fear" of losing their job and that Greyhound Bus Lines retaliates against individuals who assert their "protected rights" under this act. The complaint also alleges, "This could reasonably be expected to pose an imminent threat to the life or physical safety of individuals who ride Greyhound Bus Lines."
A copy of the complaint can be found at https://lewisseals.com and is self-explanatory.
Under the Surface Transportation Assistance Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has 60 days after receiving a complaint to conduct an investigation, decide whether it is reasonable to believe the complaint has merit, and notify, in writing, the complainant and the person alleged to have committed the violation of the findings.
Lewis Seals had this to say about the complaint:
"We all have made mistakes in life; I have made many. This is not about getting revenge. It is about how the United States government has "systematically blackballed"
