    An innocent man is freed.  Alan Dershowitz and numerous congressmen, senators and former US attorneys general spanning the entire political spectrum all put their names and reputations on the line for him.  Hundreds of thousands of Jews, and many Righteous Gentiles, celebrate around the world.  As usual, that doesn't stop the social justice warriors (what a complete misnomer if ever their were one).  And if that were all that happen, who would care?  If PETA wants to go around smearing the kindest and greatest we have, that's between them and the bird brains they represent.  But when people who know...

    The Forward ^ | December 22, 2017 | Josh Nathan-Kazis
    At the end of a meeting with President Donald Trump this fall about the Middle East peace process, attorney Alan Dershowitz turned the conversation to a matter closer to home: The prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, the Kosher meatpacking executive then serving a 27-year prison sentence for bank fraud. Rubashkin, whose kosher meat firm AgriProcessors was the subject of a Forward expose in 2006 over the mistreatment of its workers, has been a case clbre in some circles since his conviction in 2010. Dershowitz is among Rubashkins most prominent supporters and was probably the first to bring the matter...

    Yes Sholom Rubashkin Is FACTUALLY Innocent For my dear friends who have embraced darkness at a time of great joy, understand that your scary swan song is reminiscent of one who greets the news that a 95 year old has survived a quadruple heart attack (may Hashem protect all) with a loud he's not worth celebrating. I remember him when he was six months old and he once spat up on his grandmother. The only difference here is that the only vomit in this case are the lies and negativity themselves. Before jumping head first into the mud (we will,...

    An animal cruelty investigation is underway Saturday after a 16-year-old boy was seen on video throwing a cat onto the street, according to Ontario police. The video in question was apparently posted on Snapchat. Ontario police launched an investigation into the incident that eventually led them to identify a teen boy believed to be responsible for the abuse of the kitten, authorities said. The suspect, who will not be identified due to his age, has not been located and arrested. Investigators said they located the animal and its owner. They said the cat has a fractured leg but is expected...

    The British branch of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have called for Maureen OHaras fur coasts to be withdrawn from the auction set to take place in Durrow, County Laois. The auction, hosted by Sheppards auctioneers, will include furniture, furs and jewelry once belonging to the late, great Quiet Man star, Maureen OHara. Ahead of Wednesdays auction PETA has sent an urgent letter to the Irish auction house calling for the late actors mink and sable coats to be removed from sale and donated to its fur amnesty program instead. The collection, formerly held by Maureen OHara...

In the chilling photo, a flaming ball of tar...the source of the fire, along with a few hurled firecrackers is frozen in the air as a crowd sprints away from the petrified pachyderms. Many things in the photo are unclear: the fate of the calf and its mother, the reason the men are attacking them on a road cut through a forest, whether the practice has a formal name or is just a random bit of sadism. But in an...

    A US trophy hunter is facing global criticism on social media after he shot a rare snow leopard and published this grinning picture online. In the image, Hossein Golabchi - also known by the nickname Soudy - stands smiling from ear-to-ear with the stunning white and black animal draped across his shoulders. The leopard appears to have been shot at least twice in the rear as blood seeps down its coat. Golabchi, originally from Iran, came under fire after the so-called trophy hunting snap circulated online. More than 100,000 people have signed a petition calling for Golabchi to be...
  • A Festival of Cruelty

    The phantom pilot who's tossed live turkeys from his airplane for 15 years now over the annual Turkey Trot Festival at Yellville, Ark., is a phantom no more. Now that he's been succeeded by a different pilot flying a different aircraft, he's proudly revealed his identity. He turns out to be Dana Woods, pharmacist and alderman from Mountain View. "My plane is on the ground," Alderman Woods texted during the festival, playing the hero of this sad story rather than the villain he is. Naturally enough, he's offered a lame excuse for his (mis)behavior, mainly that his critics care more...

    Branson along with Bill Gates, Cargill, and Kimball Musk, backed the Memphis Meats clean-meat startup in its $17 million Series A round, which went on to raise in excess of $22 million. Memphis Meats will join a cadre of sustainable food businesses such as the three Israeli companies Meat the Future, Future Meat Technologies, and SuperMeat which will supply food to China as part of a $300 million deal. Branson, who gave up meat in 2014, appears to be investing in alignment with his beliefs and predictions about the future, all while trying to act against the deforestation...

    New Yorks Guggenheim Museum said it will not include three works in an upcoming exhibition after they sparked the ire of animal rights groups. The exhibition, Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World, included three works that critics said promoted cruelty to animalsincluding one called Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other, which reportedly included footage of pit bulls on treadmills. The museum initially defended showing the works, saying it valued freedom of expression, but it said in a statement yesterday that threats of violence have forced it to reconsider out of concern for the safety of its visitors....

    A wildlife photographer and an animal rights group have reached a settlement in perhaps the weirdest lawsuit of the century. David Slater and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have been at loggerheads for years over who owns the rights to the famous "monkey selfie" taken by a curious macaque in 2011.

    Animal control officers in Palm Beach County say they are seeing animal abuse like theyve never experienced before. Palm Beach County Animal Care reports animal control officers have rescued 49 dogs and two cats in the last 48 hours, according to WPTV. Local animal officials reported finding dozens of dogs chained to trees and parked cars as thousands of people flee the Sunshine State. High winds have now made it impossible for animal control officers to respond to these calls. County Director of Animal Care Diane Suave said she is encouraging anyone to shelter animals they see tethered outside.

    Louder With Crowder ^ | Friday August 25 2017 | Kacie Burnett
    Shoot Selfies, Not Animals is a phrase so moronic only PETA could have conjured it up. Its the name of their latest anti-hunting campaign, which has been making the rounds online. The activist group launched the photo frame a few days ago. Its now the number one filter currently on Facebook. It didnt take long for the filter to go viral, but not for the reasons PETA hoped. Hunters quickly jumped onboard and hijacked the campaign in a hilarious trolling. Naturally, PETA responded rather butt-hurtedly. Courtesy of their blog: Its not every day that thousands of hunters throw their support...

    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."

    Townhall ^ | August 7, 2017 | Christine Rousselle
    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.

    Since 1980, PETA has made a name for itself as the number-one authority on animal welfare. UK-based YouTube vlogger Calum McSwiggan, however, wants people to consider otherwise, and recently used a scathing Twitter rant to sound off on the organisations true colours. After recent investigations, PETA has come under fire for a lot more than just the scantily clad women they use for marketing. In a March 2017 press release, the Center for Consumer Freedom revealed that PETA euthanized more than 1400 cats and dogs at its Norfolk, Virginia shelter in 2016. PETA defends their actions as ethically and economically...

Minks are strange little creatures somewhere between otters and ferrets, and when they run, their front halves and back halves teeter independently like two people pretending to be one horse. While the idea of tens of thousands of minks flopping through a pasture is quite amusing, the minks liberation likely came at a price: Farm-raised minks arent really...

    PETA's silence in the face of undeniable evidence of horrific cruelty toward cats and dogs by Muslims is cowardly, hypocritical, and in itself cruel. By remaining quiet about such torture they are in effect sanctioning it Ive seen cats being played football [soccer] with. I have seen cats with their legs torn off and their eyes gouged out. We see cats that have had their heads torn off, and ones that had skin ripped away, or had their legs and back broken. ...The worst thing I saw was a bunch of kittens crawling around with their bowels hanging out because...
