Podcast – No Justice for Democrats – Beiber Slams PETA

by: Brent Smith

A phoned into the Rush Limbaugh show the other complaining that none of these democrats are held accountable for their illegal and unethical behavior. He was referring to this latest scandal over Ukraine and specifically Adam Schiff. And he’s right. It seems no matter these people do, they are never made accountable. I discuss his and my frustration.

Singer Justin Beiber and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) got into it over Beiber’s recent purchase of a couple of high-priced exotic kitty cats. PETA took offense and called him out. Unlike other entertainers and corporations, Beiber didn’t wilt or bow to the pressure. Instead his response was classic. read more

Hey PETA – What are We Supposed to Wear

By: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is at it again. I guess the Vegan/Vegetarian campaign is getting a bit old and tired, so it’s on to the next ridiculous campaign.

Their latest attack is on the wool industry. For the campaign, they have again enlisted the former “Clueless” actress, Alicia Silverstone, who poses completely naked, with the tag line which reads: “I’D RATHER GO NAKED THAN WEAR WOOL.” Clueless – how apropos. The plan is to supersize the photo and display in Times Square.

This isn’t Silverstone’s first go-round fronting for PETA. Several years ago, she posed nude for a pro-vegan ad, and in 2008, she was enlisted to speak out again goose down.

This anti-wool campaign isn’t actually all that new. It may be in the States, but PETA has been on an anti-wool tear in Australia since 2009. They have been complaining for years about the cruelty suffered by sheep on farms throughout Australia. Australia is the world’s single largest wool provider and PETA cannot let this continue. read more

Thoughts on the Bundy Ranch Standoff

By: the Common Constitutionalist

 

I haven’t commented as of yet on the Bundy ranch incident. I’ve been thinking about it and would like to share a few observations and maybe a question or two.

 

During the standoff: “They are flying helicopters over the herd to chase them,” Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven said. “It was over 90 degrees here today, and the cattle can’t run very far in this heat before collapsing. This is especially true for the young calves. We have a lot of them being born because it is springtime, and they don’t have the strength to keep up with their mothers when they are running. The cattle then become overheated and die.”

 

So my first question is, where’s PETA? Where are the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals? Are they not an animal rights organization? Do they not protest the mistreatment of any animal, or do cattle not count? Or is it just like the NOW gang, the National Organization of Liberal Women, who just pretend to be for women’s rights unless it’s a liberal man who’s the abuser; and then it’s silence. Is PETA just another left wing radical group who only protest animal abuses by the right? In a word – Yep! No matter how many cattle were intentionally or accidently killed, you won’t here a peep from PETA. Not as long as Obama is king.

 

During the standoff Bundy’s wife Carol said it appeared snipers surrounded the family’s 150 acre ranch.

 

I wasn’t there, but I have heard from more than just Mrs. Bundy that there were indeed snipers posted about. If she was able to spot them, I can only conclude that they wanted to be seen or were ordered not to cover and remain in plain sight. And if that was the case, the obvious question is, Gee, I wonder why? Could it be for intimidation? Once again, I would say – Yep! read more

Newsflash: PETA Lies

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have always been against the cruelty or abuse of animals.

They have fought to ban all laboratory use of animals and for that matter, any use of animals. They swear to being vegan or vegetarians.

They won’t use any products made from animal material such as leather, furs or feathers. Some of the members of PETA go so far as to abdicate the necessary extinction of mankind so that animals will be free of our cruel treatment.

PETA is supposed to be the most animal friendly organization in the world.

However, this may be one of the most animal cruel and hypocritical organizations in the nation. The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), a non-profit organization, obtained.
documents from the Virginia Department of Agriculture that sheds an entirely different portrayal of the animal rights group.

According to the documents received by CCF, they show that PETA, which is headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia, has killed more than 27,000 animals since 1998.

Those animals killed by PETA represent nearly 95% of those that were supposedly rescued by the group. CCF said that last year PETA found homes for only 24 pets while killing nearly 2,000 cats and dogs.

PETA dubiously claims it does not run a “traditional animal shelter” and that it puts down animals that are too sick or injured to survive.

But reports indicate that nearly 85% of the
animals rescued by PETA are destroyed within the first 24 hours and before they can even try to locate a new home for them.

PETA picked up dogs and cats from animal shelters in North Carolina and killed them before they even left the state.

A 2003 report showed PETA euthanized over 85 percent of the animals it took in, finding adoptive homes for just 14 percent. By comparison, the Norfolk SPCA found adoptive homes for 73 percent of its animals and the Virginia Beach SPCA adopted out 66 percent.

In a 2005 interview, Center for Consumer Freedom Director of Research David Martosko said,  “PETA raked in nearly $29 million last year alone, but apparently it couldn’t spare any money to care for the flesh-and-blood animals entrusted to its employees. It’s ironic — If anyone else were caught red-handed with 31 dead dogs, PETA would be holding a press conference to denounce them.”

In 2005, two PETA employees, Andrew Cook and Adria Hinkle, were arrested by police who observed them throwing the dead carcasses of dogs and cats into a dumpster in North Carolina. It was learned that the animals had been killed in the back of the PETA van before being dumped.

In 2007, the two employees were tried for 21 charges of felony animal cruelty, seven counts of littering and three counts of obtaining property by false pretensesin North Carolina.  Evidence presented during the trial showed that PETA employees killed animals they considered “adorable” and “perfect.”

During the trial witnesses testified that PETA told them they “shouldn’t have a problem at all finding homes” for dogs left in their care. Other North Carolina shelter personnel testified that they were under the impression PETA would find homes for the animals they handed over to PETA. These impressions were incorrect.

Thanks to Superior Court Judge Cy Grant the charges were reduced to eight misdemeanor charges before the jury began to deliberate. They basically got off scott free.

PETA has an annual budget of about $37 million and while they may advertise for donations to care for and find new homes for rescued animals, one has to wonder exactly what they do use their millions for.

Since they are a non-profit organization and they obviously are not using their donations for the purposes stated, someone in Virginia needs to investigate them and bring them to justice for fraud and cruelty to animals and have their non-profit status revoked.
