    Iran’s response to President Trump’s decertification of the nuclear deal, teased all week and finally made official on Friday, includes a mixture of belligerent rhetoric, ominous threats, and uncertainty about whether the deal can survive. Belligerent rhetoric poured in for days as decertification became a certainty. Among the latest examples was Brig. General Esmail Ghaani, deputy commander of the infamous Quds Force, declaring that Iran is ready to “bury” President Trump. “We are not a war-mongering country. But any military action against Iran will be regretted. … Trump’s threats against Iran will damage America,” Ghaani said to Iran’s Tansim News...

    A city worker in Tulsa has been fired after a family says he killed their dog right in front of them. Julie Bailey tells KJRH that she was getting ready to take her two dogs on a walk on Friday afternoon when a city worker came to check the water meter. As she reached the front porch, the dogs got away from her. “They were still on the leash. The leash was going down the yard. I immediately got up to chase after the leashes so I could step on them, but they were faster than I was,” she said....

    Jihad Watch reported on September 28 about this incident: a woman got on an airplane, saw dogs on it, and demanded they be removed because she had, she said, “life-threatening allergies.” When she could not produce documentation of that fact, she was herself removed from the plane. “She was later arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, disturbing the peace, obstructing and hindering a police officer, and resisting arrest.” It turned out that she was a Muslim and a professor of Islamic studies, which was noteworthy because Islam has a notable hostility to...

    What new Fox Sports analyst Michael Vick really did Leave a comment By Friendly Curmudgeon, September 5, 2017 at 12:43 pm Fox Sports announced August 27 that it has hired former NFL quarterback Michael Vick as a studio analyst for its NFL Kickoff program that immediately precedes NFL Sunday on the Fox network. The news release announcing the hire was hilarious in the way it avoided the elephant in the room; namely, Vick’s 2007 felony conviction for operating an illegal dog-fighting ring and subsequent year-and-a-half stint in federal prison. As mostly everyone knows, Vick was a successful quarterback for the...

    Court documents say a white man called a black man the N-word, and told him he's "in the wrong neighborhood." According to court documents, Mathu Dwain Karcher was with his pit bull when he began closely following a black man, who told Karcher he wanted to give him space because he didn't like pit bulls. Karcher is then accused of telling his dog, 'Get 'em!' Because of a prior leg injury, the victim couldn't run away and the dog didn't end up attacking him. Police say Karcher then told the victim, "N-word, you're in the wrong neighborhood!" and said something...

    Obama gave taxpayer money to jarring ‘dog-fighting pitbulls’ art exhibit and even libs are horrifiedAmerican taxpayers are often shocked to discover the strange places their money goes. One of the inevitable issues with big government is that public money is spent on the pet causes of whoever is in power–and citizens rarely find out about it. In a jarring case of wasteful Obama-era spending that even liberals are criticizing, the federal government gave $300,000 to a “modern art” exhibit in New York’s Guggenheim museum that features eight aggressive pit bulls strapped down to wooden tread mills facing each other....

    One of my favorite kinds of news stories is the report of a new scientific study that verifies the obvious. You've seen them. New research finds that heterosexual men are attracted to very attractive women. Evidence collected by wildlife researchers has confirmed that bears really do use the woods as toilets. But some research that corroborates the obvious is exciting because some people refuse to accept the obvious. Which brings me to the work of Dr. Gregory Berns, a neuroscientist at Emory University and the author of "What It's Like to Be a Dog." Berns has, from what I can...

    snip... That’s why I am proud to join the majority of my fellow veterans and other Americans who support Congress’s bipartisan work to defund painful and inefficient dog experiments at the VA. This legislation is truly a light among the gloomy partisan clouds surrounding D.C. these days. With all of D.C.’s political gridlock, my dear friend and fellow double amputee and bomb technician Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., and other House members deserve applause for unanimously passing legislation this summer to prohibit taxpayer funding for questionable VA research that causes dogs significant pain and distress.

    Being the welcoming nation the United States is, many come to this country and are now allowed to tell us that we are to observe and respect the customs, rules, and sometimes laws of those who immigrate here. In many Muslim nations, dogs are considered unclean and are thus subject to be treated as a pestilence. We've also seen many stories here where American citizens with dogs are subjected to justified discrimination because their pets and/or guide dogs offend Muslims who may come in contact with them in public places. We created a video to illustrate the barbaric acts committed...

    We have all heard that heroes come in all shapes and sizes; sometimes the most unassuming person rises to the occasion and meets the challenge. And sometimes it is a very special type of animal, a rescue dog. In the aftermath of 9/11 [attacks], the world’s largest deployment of rescue dogs were used to search for survivors, working tirelessly with their handlers, searching the ruins, and according to witnesses, giving great comfort to the workers. ~snip~ Here is a touching quote from the rescue scene: “I volunteered to serve food to the workers at Ground Zero after 9/11.

    Do pack animals just follow their leader? Or if not, how do they reach a consensus? According to observations taken of African wild dogs in Botswana, one option is sneezing. According to new research, if enough animals in the pack sternutate, that constitutes a quorum that it's time to get up and go hunting. The research was initiated by Neil Jordan of the UNSW Centre for Ecosystem Science, who was studying the dogs' social rallies. This is when the dogs, when they have finished resting, conduct energetic greeting ceremonies before running off to hunt. Jordan started to notice that, prior...
