    Brandon Admin To Punish Border Patrol Agents Who Were Cleared Of Wrongdoing For ‘Whipping’ Posted on June 15, 2022 by Constitutional Nobody Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration is reportedly planning to discipline the U.S. Border Patrol agents who were accused of “whipping” illegal immigrants last year – despite an investigation clearing the agents of any criminal wrongdoing. “The [Department of Homeland Security’s] Office of the Inspector General, they had first crack at it,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told The New York Post in April. “They determined there was no criminal activity that was done so...
  • A Proud Aussie Barmah Forest Horsewoman in WW1 Dress Protests The Slaughter Of Wild Horses

    The poetic story of the taming of a herd of wild mountain horses lead by "the colt from old Regret" is an iconic piece of Australian heritage made in to the Kirk Douglas movie "The Man From Snowy River". But in the Socialist Left state of Victoria it is possible that these intelligent wild animals are being treated even worse that the human citizens. They are being slaughtered, often left to die horrible deaths alone in the bush where no one can see what is happening. Decent loving country people like Tanya Prior protested this yesterday on the steps of...
  • California court rules that bees are a type of fish in order to protect them under the state's endangered species act

    Judges ruled on Tuesday that bumble bees can be classed as fish under California environmental laws. This unlocks protections for the state's four endangered bumble bee species. The ruling clarifies the state's confusing classification in its environmental protections. A trio of judges in California said on Tuesday that bees can be legally classed as a type of fish as part of a ruling that brings added conservation protections for the endangered species. "The issue presented here is whether the bumble bee, a terrestrial invertebrate, falls within the definition of fish," the judges wrote in their ruling. And, they concluded, it...

    Kmele Foster gives a very good update to the Christian Cooper/Amy Cooper story. If you don't know those names: That's the black bird watcher who accused the white "Central Park Karen" of making up fake charges against him and calling the cops on him. Here's what the media all knows, but which never tells you: Christian Cooper is known to have a history of doing this. He has complaints from multiple people of threatening their dogs. He, a man who hates dogs and routinely threatens to harm them, carries around a bag of dog treats just so he can lure...

    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 5/2022 | Unknown
    This is one the most fascinating short videos I have seen in awhile. I love dolphins, and as such I have always been fascinated by their behavior towards humans. Yet, when I ran across this video, I found myself watching it over and over again. Knowing how it would end up, but wishing for a different outcome. Yet dolphins are but big fish, and they must eat. Someone will inevitably reply to me, "Hey it's a mammal." Well I know that, and the carnivores one's like to eat smaller animals, regardless of the category we put them in.Normally when I...

    UNUSUAL DREAM FEATURING A FAMOUS ENTERTAINER AND A BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE PROBABLY FAMOUS, TOO, ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THEMDisclaimer: This is a memory about a real dream that I really had, presented for your entertainment and possible amusement. Maybe I'm hoping someone can offer an interpretation – wait a minute. That's a bad idea. Never mind. Forget I said that. I don't think the dream was predictive, though I frequently have dreams that predict future events. For example, I had the following dream two or perhaps three days before the shooting at the DC sports field where...

    Detroit Police Officers H. Kourani and G. Rogers say the puppies could have died in the cold if they hadn't been found It was the day after Christmas, at an abandoned house, and something seemed off, Detroit police have announced.

Around 5 p.m., two officers with the city’s 11th Precinct, identified as H. Kourani and G. Rogers, were called to respond...

    My letter to Senator Marco Rubio, Florida: An amendment to House Resolution 5421, passed on party lines, and Senate bill S626 will amend the Lacy act to prohibit the transportation into or within the US of all live animals of all types. Exceptions are: 1 - farm animals 2 - cats and dogs 3 - any animal that was traded in very large numbers during the calendar year 2021. It should be noted that the pandemic greatly reduced animal shipments during 2021. Senator Rubio, you wrote this legislation and submitted it to the Committee on Environment and Public Works on...

    Several outbreaks of severe bird flu in Europe and Asia have been reported in recent days to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), in a sign the virus is spreading quickly again. The spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza, commonly called bird flu, has put the poultry industry on alert after previous outbreaks led to the culling of tens of millions of birds. Outbreaks also often lead to trade restrictions. It is attracting the attention too of epidemiologists as the virus can be transmitted to humans. China has reported 21 human infections with the H5N6 subtype of avian influenza...

    POSSIBLE ANTIDOTE FOR THE V-SERUM AND THE CURRENT SPIKE PROTEIN CONTAGION State of the Nation Dr. Judy Mikovits (1 min. MP4 is attached) has revealed that the medical establishment has known all along about the antidote to the contagion – acontagion that is now being seen today by thousands of people who have not taken the serum, but have merely come in close proximity with others who have taken the jab. (The word “serum” is being used here since, evidently, the way to avoid taking the jab is to say “I am allergic to the serum”.) When the medical establishment...

News Flash: The first 56 volumes are compiled into a book titled “Bible Study For Those Who Don’t Read The Bible.” More details at the end. Now back to our regular programming. Thanks for joining us! We begin our study about dogs in the Bible with a famous quote from President Harry Truman: “You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.”However, in Scripture, our furry, four-legged friends were physically and symbolically associated with everything unholy, unclean, wild, and sinful. Dogs in ancient times were feared scavengers,...
  • When egg-laying hens get to run around and eat bugs - well I will definitely eat their eggs.

    09/17/2021 3:53:23 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 98 replies
    I've been eating about three eggs a day on average for decades now. My cholesterol profile is perfect (well under 200) and even though I approach my 60s (scary), I have never once had a prescription drug. People like to say "don't eat eggs or only eat egg whites or you will get too much cholesterol" but they are clueless. Your human body (and I presume only humans are reading this) will make far more cholesterol than you will get from eggs each day in the absence of dietary cholesterol. So you are better off eating your eggs. Now most...
