The launch broadcast program from The Oneness Foundation featuring Founder Lesli Moore Dahlke.

The Oneness Foundation is a Community-Based Foundation
(Dedicated to the global community)

Focusing on Veteran Outreach

Veterans, Families and their Communities

During the reintegration back into society, The Oneness Foundation encourages empowerment to those in-service within their own towns, cities, communities, and “their homes.” It is a community approach.

A listening and hearing approach of humanity, support, and advocacy for those that gave so much, and sacrificed for all of us.

The Oneness Foundation will encourage mentorship programs, local opportunities of employment, educational help, and health care advocacy.

The Oneness Foundation will give a very personal, unique and impassioned voice for many who have never been heard. It is a time for listening. It is a time for healing. It is a time for moving forward.

At a time so critical, The Oneness Foundation, will lend an open and outreached hand of help, caring support through personal experience as the healing process begins, and extend the respect so honored and earned.

This is a time of returning to other-directed behavior.  To caring for our neighbors, as we welcome all members of our communities back into a world that is in need of grace, peace, and a compassionate understanding.

Every member of society is a valued member in the global community of today.

Many “in service” to humanity did not wear the uniform of the military. As part of the global community these many men and women gave unconditionally, sacrificed, and honored their countries.

There were many who served their countries including volunteer nurses, clergy, those who volunteered for service organizations, photojournalists, and all those men and women who served all humanity.

This was endless, immeasurable, and unconditional giving. These brave, dedicated,  proud, and devoted individuals, need a voice, too.

The Oneness Foundation is dedicated to being a strong voice.


Founder Lesli Moore Dahlke

lmdteamLesli Moore Dahlke is a Southern Californian native. Being a native is a rarity for most “Californians,” who frequently come from other places in the country. But, proudly, she was born and raised in the bright beautiful Golden State. Lesli describes herself as a lucky child of the 50’s greatly loved by her parents. Her father, Del Moore, was a noted and successful television and movie actor. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Northridge. Her degree was as a practitioner of Television and Film Production. Lesli’s secondary emphasis was on the written word of journalism. As her career began, she pursued a successful career in Television Media Production.

Lesli headed the production staff that produced the first cable series for the Playboy Channel and various other ventures. She was a long time writer to the former on-line newspaper as an Environmental Contributor. Lesli now is a contributing writer for The City of Hope.

Lesli was diagnosed with three virulent cancers caused by exposure to the carcinogenic Agent Orange while traveling with the USO, as an innocent 18-year old girl, in a war-torn Vietnam. As of this date, she lives daily with two rare and active cancers attributed to Agent Orange exposure.

January 26, 2014. Commemorative program dedicated to the life of Investigative Journalist and American Patriot Patrick J. O’Brien. With dedications from distinguished guests including Matt Kibbe President of FreedomWorks and Scott Porter Investigative Biologist

Patrick J. O’Brien – Investigative Journalist & Producer (2009 – 2013)

pat2Pat O’Brien had over 40 years of experience in radio/ TV news, advertising and marketing after gaining a B.S. degree from Ithaca College in Broadcast Communication Management. In the 1980’s he experienced such success with Burger King Corporation that his reputation led to being sought after by Wendy’s to consequently help develop the “Where’s the Beef” campaign in 1983. He also worked for two of the top three advertising agencies in Florida, managing 100’s of advertising account budgets. As a broadcast professional he worked in TV and radio news hosting many talk radio programs. He worked for Clear Channel Communications providing news to some 55 radio stations in Florida. During the last decade of his life he also worked diligently in the Indoor Air Quality & Surface Protection Industry. O’Brien made the decision to establish a company in fighting the “Cross-Contamination of Infectious Diseases” including MRSA, AIDS, E. coli, Salmonella, and over 100 viruses. This followed a fight for his life after contracting and surviving MRSA while in a Florida hospital; the result of a simple blood test. He formed AirTech Solutions 4u, Inc. a Sub-Chapter “S” 90% Disabled Vietnam Veteran Owned Florida Corporation in October of 2006. The firm became dedicated to helping reduce disease in Haiti by 85% after the devastating earthquake. It was during this period he discovered that donations promised to the people of Haiti were not being awarded to companies for the recovery effort. He also became suspicious that generous contributions and promises of government relief efforts were somehow being prevented from quickly aiding the recovery of that nation.

DWFC13-2At approximately the same time, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf occurred. Within a day after the disaster, one of his product vendors called him and said they had an environmentally-safe product that could solve the oil issue. In trying to introduce this product to the BP Corporation, he felt strongly that he was being stonewalled first by BP, and then by the Deepwater Horizon representatives. This led him on an investigative trail that uncovered the dispersant product BP had continued to use in the Gulf of Mexico. A very toxic product to humans and highly harmful to the delicate ecosystems of the Gulf. As the story continued to unravel around the plight of the Haitians, combined with the untold complexity surrounding the Gulf oil spill, unanswered questions slowly began to link many of the issues that the mainstream media was not exposing. As fortune would have it, he had the opportunity to work with David William Gibbons to further develop the story as a journalist. Since the disaster that robbed the souls of eleven in the Gulf of Mexico, he dedicated himself to finding answers and solutions to the BP spill. As he and his research team discovered and verified that the dispersant product being used by BP was a poison that had been banned for use in the UK since 1998. He felt an obligation to reveal their findings to the world by joining the David Gibbons “In Discussion” program later to become DG Networks.

patfeaturedjan14Patrick J. O’Brien was an American Patriot whose commitment to his country will be forever remembered by those who knew him. Following service in Vietnam he graduated in broadcast journalism working in the advertising and broadcast industries for many years. He was also a passionate entrepreneur managing a football team as part of his portfolio. His health was compromised for most of his adult life following traumatic experiences in Vietnam. This period in the early 1970’s led to psychological and physical issues. However, his devotion to those serving in the armed forces remained steadfast, reflected by his support in local veteran facilities where he himself received medical treatment. In 2009 his work and significant contribution to radio broadcasting at DG Networks became profound. Until his passing in 2013 an invaluable contribution was made in producing and leaving behind over 30 hours of recordings charting the Deepwater Horizon disaster. As a staunch republican delicately balanced with foresight and experience he also supported radio programming with David Gibbons covering distinguished guests including Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Sheriff Paul Babeu and Matt Kibbe President of FreedomWorks among many others. In the Fall of 2013 he was appointed an honorary member (posthumous) of Universal One Broadcasting with the approval of Lady Fiona Montagu of Beaulieu Co-founder of the organization. He is survived by his beloved wife Beverly who was instrumental as a researcher during the Deepwater reporting.

“The Gulf of Mexico Disaster” – The Deep Water Horizon MACADO 252 Disaster

dhpoThe Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill or the Macondo blowout) was a massive ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, now considered the largest offshore spill in U.S. history. Some estimates placed it by late May or early June of 2010 as among the largest oil spills in the world with tens of millions of gallons spilled to date. The spill stems from a sea floor 10,000 foot deep oil gusher (MC252) that followed the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion. The explosion killed 11 platform workers and injured 17 others. The gusher, estimated at the time by the quasi-official Flow Rate Technical Group flowing at 20,000 to 40,000 barrels (840,000 to 1,700,000 US gallons; 3,200,000 to 6,400,000 litres) of crude oil per day, originates from a deepwater wellhead 5,000 feet (1,500 m) below the ocean surface. The exact spill flow rate was uncertain in part because BP refused to allow independent scientists to perform accurate measurements and is a matter of ongoing debate. The resulting oil slick covered a surface area of at least 2,500 square miles (6,500 km2), with the exact size and location of the slick fluctuating from day to day depending on weather conditions at the time.

Patrick J. O’Brien Vietnam Veteran, Investigative Journalist and American Patriot (b. October 6, 1947 – d. October 15, 2013)

pattribute† O’Brien, Patrick J. Veteran Investigative Journalist (b. October 6, 1947 – d. October 15, 2013) In this work and over many years I have been truly honored to work with the finest people in the world. Today in one of the saddest moment’s of my life, I was informed unexpectedly of the passing of my greatest of friends Patrick J. O’Brien. His devoted wife Beverly expressed quietly through great courage the final hours of this wonderful man’s life. Patrick and Beverly walked with me through intense times during the early years of this broadcasting. For three and a half years there has rarely been a day that passed without talking to my friend. Only this year have our conversations been less frequent, during which ongoing and continuing health challenges follow critical open-heart surgery. In fact we laughed together very recently betting on who would leave first. In so many ways I wish I had taken that title. The loss of this man has over recent hours left me almost incapacitated with grief. However, this  will subside as he would wish the broadcasts to continue unabated. They shall indeed.

Patrick proudly served his country as have so many other brave men and women. However, as a Vietnam veteran he suffered much of his life with scars both psychologically and physically. Following service in the armed forces he worked in the advertising industry and also became an experienced investigative journalist. As an entrepreneur he created successful enterprises. He also witnessed them fall but during many recollections, remained always pragmatic and thankful for the experiences.

Among the many shared achievements was our work on Deepwater during 2010 and 2011. This followed the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. His endless compassion for those directly affected and involved at any level, is reflected through endless hours of broadcast programs created during that period. Among those who featured in a long lineup of appearances, were ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, Astronaut, Scientist and Author Dr. Brian O’Leary and Scott Porter, Diver, Marine Biologist.

Patrick and his beloved wife Beverly shall forever be ingrained in my soul for their friendship, love and dedication. To have known him and always have him by my side is an honor and privilege.

“I shall always continue and work tirelessly in this transitional media work and you shall in every moment and until my last breath be by my side. For Beverly my love will continue in your absence. I  love you.”

Mr. Adams career spans over thirty years. Early in his career he held management positions in Fortune 100 companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Borg Warner Health Products and Herman Miller. After leaving the corporate setting he found and built three management consulting firms, the last of which he sold to Perot System as part of their pre IPO strategy. There he reported to the internationally acclaimed thought leader, author and then Vice Chairman of Perot, Mr. James Champy. In this position he focused his attention on leveraging Perot’s technology to help improve the health care delivery system, while contributing to Mr. Champy’s second book entitled, X Engineering The Corporation.
