  • If animals could vote, Donald Trump would lose

    The animal kingdom will have lost one of its staunchest defenders when the Oval Office is abandoned by Barack Obama, who through a series of critical, administrative rulemaking has done more to protect animals than any other president in recent memory. This will be especially devastating if Donald Trump replaces him – not only because of his sons’ lust for hunting exotic game but also because his recently announced agriculture advisory committee includes several active opponents of animal protection policies.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We're gonna get to the gorilla business. That's easily explained, too. Folks, you remember when the two fish, what kind of fish were they, I keep thinking dolphins or porpoises, way back in the nineties, a couple of them got caught in sea ice, way far north of where they should have been, and the whole country became captivated with, will they find their way out? What can we do? Can we cut holes in the ice so that the porpoise, the dolphins, whatever they were, can we guide them out? Can we do something? Can we...

    Sometimes it's hard to love those who hate you. But it's even more difficult to love those who refuse to see reason or to recognize their own errors, self-contradictions, mistakes and hysteria. Misology is the irrational and intractable hatred of logic and reason. It's a deep-seated, delusional self-assurance that one is right not only despite logic, scholarship and scientific and historical reality but even despite one's own assertions. Misological people will demand they are right even after they've contradicted themselves thus proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are axiomatically and patently wrong. And it's never a pleasant conversation with them. Rather, it's...

    NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - "Easter is a time for love! No more shedding animal blood!" This was the battle cry of six animal rights activists who interrupted Easter Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York to protest the killing of animals. Brandishing signs featuring pictures of animals and the question "Will You Let Me Live?" the six militants took to the aisles, with one yelling into a megaphone that "only the devil" could create "animals capable of love and joy just so humans can make them suffer and die." The incident occurred about 20 minutes into a Sunday morning...

    Worshipers attending Easter Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral got the scare of their lives when a band of unruly protesters disrupted the event. “I thought they were going to blow themselves up,” worshiper Carol Forester, 50, confessed. A group of six animal rights protesters abruptly leaped up from a pew in the middle of the service and shouted, “Easter is a time for love! No more shedding animal blood!” while holding up signs of animals pleading for their lives. About 20 minutes into the Rev. Damian O’Connell’s noon Mass, protester Jacob Martin, 23, rose out of his seat in the...

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is appealing to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama to “hatch a new tradition” at the White House Easter Egg Roll — by doing away with the chicken eggs used as part of the festivities. “Instead of using hard-boiled chicken eggs — which took chickens 34 hours to lay and which are slated for use in this year’s egg roll, egg hunt, and egg decorating station — will you please accept a donation of plastic eggs and ceramic EggNots for use in the event or just switch to them?” the animal...

    Angry vandals defaced the vacation home of lion killer Walter J Palmer overnight on Monday, while also littering the American dentist's driveway with pig's feet in a show of outrage over the death of a beloved lion named Cecil. Pictures taken Tuesday morning outside the 55-year-old's $1million vacation home in Marco Island, Florida show the garage door spray painted with the words 'Lion killer!' and a handful of orange pig's feet scattered across the front of the house. Palmer has been in hiding ever since he was identified last month as the big game hunter behind the cruel killing of...

    Though a New York judge ruled Thursday that the law still considers chimpanzees property, not people, a prominent thinker in the pro-life movement warned that attempts to raise animals to human status will continue.  Wesley J. Smith, co-director of the Discovery Institute's Center on Human Exceptionalism, said Friday, "We are gratified that a court refused to declare two chimpanzees 'persons.' That is right and proper. Chimps are animals, and the 'species barrier' separating the value of humans and animals, as some animal rights advocates put it, must never be breached."   "But make no mistake," Smith said. "Attempts to...
  • Sen. Bob Menendez intros CECIL Act to restrict big-game hunting

    Sen. Bob Menendez has introduced legislation to curb trophy hunting of endangered and threatened species after the demise of Cecil, an African lion whose death at the hands of an American hunter touched off a social media firestorm. The Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large Animal Trophies Act would extend restrictions on the import and export of animals that are being considered for inclusion under the Endangered Species Act. Currently, the restrictions apply only to animals already on the list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had suggested the African lion be listed as “threatened” in October, but...

    Janesville — A Wisconsin dentist is dealing with angry phone calls because he has the same last name as the Minnesota dentist accused of killing a protected lion in Zimbabwe. Mathew Palmer of Janesville says he has received about 30 calls since Tuesday night, when officials in Zimbabwe identified a Minnesota dentist — Walter Palmer — as the American hunter who killed the lion.

    Despite the possibility that talking to Cecil would unveil clues about his death, the animal did not offer an explanation. ... Cecil supposedly told Anderson, who specializes in speaking to clients' deceased pets and charges $75 for a fifteen minute session with up to two animals, that he is now 'finer than ever'. He apparently said he is 'grander than before as no one can take our purity, our truth or our soul'. 'Be strong and speak for all the others who suffer needlessly to satisfy human greed. Bring Light and Love and we will rise above this'.

    ...Animal Rights Groups Are Desperate to Cover Up Both social media and the progressive mainstream media have been in an uproar over the past few days about the death of “Cecil,” a 13-year-old lion in Zimbabwe. Cecil was killed in an organized licensed hunt by a big game hunter, Minnesota dentist Dr. Walter Palmer, who has now gone into hiding after receiving numerous death threats from outraged animal rights activists. However, it would appear that the outrage surrounding the death of Cecil is what is commonly known as a “First World Problem,” as residents of Zimbabwe were mostly unaware of,...

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's bill to ban horse-drawn carriages reached the City Council on Monday, in a move to phase out the carriages that often give tours around Central Park. The legislation says that as of June 1, 2016, "it shall be unlawful to operate a horse-drawn vehicle in the city of New York or offer rides to the public on a vehicle drawn or pulled by a carriage horse." ... It also boosts the penalty for breaking horse-carriage rules to a maximum of $25,000 instead of the current $500. The proposed ban was introduced one day after...

    New York City’s brand-new mayor Bill de Blasio has an ambitious progressive agenda that includes tax increases, much talk about somehow crushing inequality and punishing “the elite.” Two issues high on de Blasio’s agenda are the creation of more abortion clinics across the five boroughs and an outright ban on horse-drawn carriage rides in Central Park. De Blasio’s animosity to the horse-drawn carriages runs deep, apparently. “We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period,” he said at a news conference Monday, according to CNN. He added that he believes the tourist attraction — popular since 1858 — is...

    Illinois passed a new state law that set back the efforts of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), making the use of drones to interfere with hunters and fishermen prohibited. The law was created in response to PETA’s plan to employ drones called “air angels” to monitor outdoors enthusiasts engaged in hunting and fishing nationwide. Of course, the motivation for many outdoorsman is to get away from technology and be in harmony with nature. But PETA has another plan for lovers of the wilderness. They want to spy on hunters as self appointed green police trying to...
