    In an interview this week, Viktor Shokin, the Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating Burisma--the firm that employed Hunter Biden--asked "why isn't the fact that Joe Biden bragged he threatened to withhold $1 billion in US aid to Ukraine unless I was fired evidence of his corruption? Is that not paying a bribe for my dismissal?" Presidential Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre pointed out that "President Biden was very clear that his threat to withhold the billion dollars in aid had the full backing of President Obama. The threat to withhold federal aid in order to extort desired behavior is a presidential...
  • Doctors often miss symptoms of meat allergy linked to lone star ticks, CDC finds

    NBC ^ | 7/27.23 | Erika Edwards
    At least 42% of 1,500 doctors surveyed had never heard of alpha-gal syndrome, a tick-borne illness that can cause potentially life-threatening allergy to red meat. A potentially life-threatening allergy to red meat may impact almost half a million Americans, but many doctors have no idea what it is or how to treat it, according to research published Thursday. Two reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal significant gaps in knowledge about alpha-gal syndrome, even as the condition is rising in the population.

    Discern Report ^ | July 14, 2023 | Dr. Joseph Mercola
    * One of the latest GMO Frankenfoods is Piggy Sooy, a soybean genetically engineered to contain pig protein. One or more undisclosed pig genes are spliced into conventional soya to create a soybean with 26.6% animal protein * Moolec, the U.K.-based company that developed Piggy Sooy, is also working on developing a pea plant that produces beef protein. The company claims these transgenic hybrids will provide similar taste, texture and nutritional value as meat, without the high cost of cultured or lab-grown meat alternatives * June 21, 2023, the U.S. Department of Agriculture authorized the sale of cell-cultivated chicken from...

    Independent Sentinel ^ | By M Dowling - June 22, 20232
    The FDA approved lab-grown meat and say it is OK for human consumption. This is the corrupt organization that gave you fake vaccines. According to the makers, they grow a cell from an animal, and meat tastes like meat, chicken tastes like chicken. The come-on is they don’t have to kill animals. And, of course, the climate crisis… It sounds like processed food on steroids. Can you imagine what they might inject into it that we don’t want? Is it crazy to envision them one day mandating we eat it and banning most farms? Between this and the insects, we’re...

  • FDA: People Can Eat These Gene-Edited Pigs

    Genetically-altered pigs are now on the menu. The United States Food and Drug Administration has authorized gene-edited pigs entrance into the food chain for human consumption—as German-style sausages. Gene-editing can make changes in an organism’s DNA that could occur in nature or through selective breeding but would take much longer without a tool like CRISPR. The FDA authorization is investigational, and limited to these particular pigs, but shows that gene-editing livestock to quickly produce desirable traits for improved food production is a viable strategy for helping feed the planet’s growing population. “It’s important for a university to set the precedent...
  • It’s Time to Step Up Pork’s Game at the Meat Counter

    Pork Business ^ | STEVE MALAKOWSKY
    One of the greatest frustrations I have is looking at prices at the meat counter. We’ve all seen the extremely high beef prices and wonder why pork hasn’t made a run on demand relative to value compared to beef. I was recently talking to a producer and his thought was if we have consumption of 50 pounds of pork per-capita at a retail value of $4 per pound, each individual in the U.S. could buy all their pork for $200 today. This is a real value relative to beef and a great buy for families trying to offset inflated food...

Created in 1908, fettuccine was made out of love and concern by an Italian restauranteur. Alfredo di Lelio’s concern for his pregnant wife’s lack of appetite caused him to put his talents to work. The birth of their first son depended on it. His recipe of noodles, cheese, and butter not only encouraged her to eat but she also...

    A former ABC journalist who went missing after the FBI raided his home and seized his laptop has been arrested for transporting child pornography. As reported last year, Emmy-winning investigative journalist James Meek went missing after the FBI raided his Virginia home and seized classified information from his laptop in April 2022. James Gordon Meek, 52, went missing after the feds raided his Arlington penthouse apartment, the Rolling Stone reported. Meek produced the Hulu documentary “3212 Unredacted” which detailed the 2017 Pentagon coverup of the deaths of US special forces in Niger. The “lightning raid” was conducted after a search...

The day reminds us that bacon is not just for breakfast and encourages us to test out various ways to enjoy this culinary marvel. #BaconDay Everything is better with bacon, so someone said once. And our research shows very little to dispute this assertion. The United States and Canada make bacon from the pork belly. Other countries around the world use the side and back cuts of pork. The meat is cured in either a salt brine or a salt pack. It...

    Turkey, pork, and other Christmas day staples have all seen price spikes of around 20 per cent or more amid Britain’s inflation crisis. A traditional Christmas dinner is likely to be out of the financial reach of many this holiday season, with one trade union association reporting that the essential components of the meal have risen by over 20 per cent on average while wages have largely stagnated.

    Story at-a-glance: * A carnivore or meat-only diet can be uniquely beneficial for some people, especially those struggling with autoimmune diseases, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, chronic pain and mental health disorders * It can also be used as a detox strategy for three to 12 months * One of the primary benefits of a carnivore diet — as long as you focus on red meat and limit chicken and pork — is that it’s a really low in omega-6 fat, which is the most harmful type of fat and a primary driver of chronic disease * You’re also removing most...

    Oregon’s U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden announced the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be awarding Oregon a total of $695,097 for sagebrush conservation efforts across the state. This funding will help support collaborative efforts by ranchers, growers, and agencies to improve habitat. “Restoring and conserving Oregon’s sagebrush ecosystems can help to address the damage and dangers invasive species bring to important rangelands and habitat to promote a healthy environment and a strong economy,” said Senator Merkley, who used his position as Chairman of the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee to secure this funding in the infrastructure law.

The only people who appear to be benefiting are the ones who make a pretty penny “serving” the homeless. The homeless–an ever expanding group in our major cities–are still sleeping rough and dying of overdoses.New York City’s homeless population has surged in recent years to 80,000 people, according to The Bowery Mission, a 150-year-old agency serving the hungry and homeless, citing federal data.This despite the fact that...

    A public school district in southeastern Minnesota has banned pork offerings on all of its menus to accommodate Muslim students. Faribault Public Schools is no longer offering pork in its school cafeterias after a prior board meeting where concerns about the pork offerings were raised by the local chapter of the Minnesota Parent Union. Members of the Minnesota Parent Union and two managers from Sodexo, a food and facilities company, spoke about the significant menu change in a video last month, which was shared by the district. Activist Tiffini Flynn Forslund had met Sodexo district manager Lori McMahon at the...

    Democratic National Committee adviser Cedric Richmond argued Thursday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that President Joe Biden canceling student debt was about “bringing this country together.” Richmond said, “We as a country tell people all the time, education is the best way to lift yourself out of poverty. Then the cost of education is so high that it bars so many people from getting there. Then when they get it, we say that home ownership is the best way to transfer wealth from generation to generation, but they can’t, in fact, buy homes because they’re saddled with student loan debt....

    New rules on pork production will lead to regional shortages. Bay State voters in 2016 approved a referendum that would prohibit the sale of products from farms that confine “any breeding pig [sow], calf raised for veal, or egg-laying hen in a way that prevents the animal from lying down, standing up, fully extending its limbs, or turning around freely.” Hog farmers would be most affected since nearly all are housed in individual pens. “There’s so many things that there’s shortages on, it’s almost like throwing salt on a wound,” ...If Massachusetts can prohibit the sale and mere distribution of...
