    California Assemblyman Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) has introduced a bill that would ban high school biology classes from dissecting animals as part of their learning about anatomy. Kalra says that “the current law allowing students with moral objections to opt out of the dissection lesson is unsatisfactory. For one, it still allows the callous exploitation of animals to go forward. Second, it allows students without moral scruples to receive a more complete education than their morally superior peers.” “The whole premise of these dissections is founded on an unwarranted notion that humans are more important than other creatures,” Kalra observed....

    Another day, another left-wing hate hoax crime. Michigan – Nikki Joly, a biological woman who transitioned into a man, is accused of burning down ‘his’ own home, killing 5 pets in a hate hoax crime. Joly’s home burned down in 2017 and the FBI investigated it as a hate crime because Joly was a transgender man and gay rights activist in a conservative town and reportedly received threats over ‘his’ activism. It turns out Nikki Joly was frustrated that the ‘Jackson Pride Parade’ and festival held just days before the home was set ablaze, hadn’t received more attention or protests....

    Babies -- Bought, Sold and Traded LONDON, SEPT. 17, 2005 (Zenit.org) Abortion advocates' decades-long push to deny or downplay the humanity of the unborn child is bearing fruit. Unborn children are increasingly being treated like consumer products, if recent news stories are an indication. Last Saturday the London-based Times published a story describing how the Institute for Problems of Cryobiology and Cryomedicine of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, in Kharkov, sells baby parts. The list on its Web site offers a variety of cells and other tissues from babies. The institute alleges that the material comes from fetuses...

    Moments after she began smashing the windows of a late-model Chrysler Town & Country minivan outside the 2019 Detroit auto show, police had the white, floppy-eared dog in handcuffs. In a move reminiscent of a “Scooby-Doo" episode, an officer lifted the costumed dog head -- after throwing her white-gloved paws to the glass-covered concrete -- revealing an animal rights activist beneath. The Detroit woman joined more than a dozen others, some from out of state, during a PETA protest of a Chrysler dealership outside the 2019 North American International Auto Show. The activists condemned the Alaska dealership’s sponsorship of the...

    Two members of the U.S. House of Representatives re-introduced a bill last week that would make malicious acts of animal cruelty a felony nationwide. A person convicted of the crime could face a fine or up to seven years in prison, or both. The bill, known as the Preventing Animal Cruel and Torture (PACT) Act, is co-sponsored by Democrat Ted Deutch and Republican Vern Buchanan. PACT would criminalize "crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling animals." The measure would also address bestiality and other attempts to sexually exploit animals. Deutch tweeted, "We will get this done. It's bipartisan, common-sense policy that...

The law was introduced to the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, in 2010 and took eight years to be passed. The law contains the basic principles of pet ownership, based on responsible, ethical and humane treatment of animals.....

    Thus, rather than let animals at least live in “no-kill shelters”, it created “kill shelters” to relieve allegedly suffering animals from suffering in a “no-kill shelter” by killing them.  PETA supports kill shelters and has one at its headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia.In 2017 alone, almost two-thirds of the nearly 1000 dogs, and 80% of the nearly 1500 cats that PETA brought into its shelter were killed.  Those numbers are actually an improvement from 2005 to 2012, where 90% to 97.3% of animals were put down.So zealous is PETA to murder animals that it stole a 9-year-old’s pet Chihuahua because they...

    A New Jersey animal shelter’s annual pet blessings has prompted a federal lawsuit by a group called American Atheists Inc. of Cranford. The Bergen County Animal Shelter is accused of violating the First and 14th amendments of the U.S. Constitution over two events held in 2016 and 2017. Each event featured a member of the Franciscan Order of the Divine Mercy in North Arlington. Plaintiffs say that animal blessings at the facility are tantamount to an endorsement of religion. They seek an injunction to stop the annual event, and legal fees.
  • Colorado’s electricity rates continue to rise

    In 2001, Colorado electricity consumers enjoyed some of the lowest electric rates in the country. The 15 years since haven’t been so kind to ratepayers. For more than a decade, elected officials, PUC commissioners, industry and advocates have told Colorado ratepayers that they could transform the state’s electricity generation away from coal and toward industrial wind, solar and natural gas with little cost to ratepayers. However, the actual numbers tell a much different story. Colorado electricity rates have risen sharply – 62.1 percent – across residential, commercial and industrial sectors, despite a slight decrease in recent years. Colorado electricity rates...

    What would the world do without PETA, who always tackles the important issues? Leading up to the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics, the radical anti-humans at PETA now advocate for "silent fireworks" because traditional fireworks scar dogs emotionally. According to LA Weekly, they "want to see silent fireworks, or possibly even a Summer Games without fireworks at all, so that animals aren't traumatized by the simulation of artillery." "We have seen success with silent fireworks," says PETA's associate director of online marketing, Kate Tuggle. "Silent fireworks are generally more colorful."

    From the same people who declared that milk was a symbol of white supremacy comes this blisteringly-hot take: cheese is the most sexist food there is, cows are regularly raped on farms, and the act of eating cheese is failing to combat sexism. "Contrary to popular belief," explains PETA, cows only produce milk when they're pregnant or have just given birth. In order to keep producing milk, PETA describes how cows are "raped" to become pregnant again and again and how their calves are treated immediately after birth.

    Animal rights organisation PETA has asked Warhammer publisher Games Workshop to remove the depiction of characters wearing fur from its range of miniatures and games. PETA, which has become well-known for its anti-fur campaigns involving celebrities and its calls for the humane treatment of animals both in reality and fiction, said in a statement that it had written to Games Workshop CEO Kevin Rountree to request a ban on the portrayal of fur clothing in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes. The move is likely to rile up some fans of the series who see the ethical treatment of animals...
