    Ewe-turnOn Saturday, the Australian government announced plans to ban its live sheep export trade by 2028, a move praised by animal rights groups but condemned by farmers who were “shocked” at the 4-year timeline, even as the government offered a ~$71M package to help impacted businesses make the transition.Farmers in neighboring New Zealand, renowned for its shearling natives, will have taken notice.Indeed, NZ’s own sheep population continues to dwindle, with new data released by Stats NZ in early May revealing that the nation’s total number of sheep fell by 3% to ~24M for the year ended June 2023. That’s roughly...

    Muslims will yet “slaughter” the Jews “like sheep” when the opportunity arises, according to a Michigan Islamic cleric who appealed to Allah, seeking to become “soldiers” for Islam in any form desired, including death. In a sermon at the Islamic Center of Warren, Michigan, in January, Imam Abdou Zindani warned of the fate of Jews everywhere, pointing to a Palestinian businessman who told a Jewish New Yorker what Muslims have in store for the Jews.

    According to a report by Newsweek, a group of sheep in the vicinity of Almyros, Thessaly, Greece, managed to infiltrate a greenhouse and voraciously consume a staggering 600 pounds of medical cannabis. The shepherd, astutely aware of their mischievous escapade, observed that his woolly companions began exhibiting peculiar behavior after indulging in the forbidden Mary Jane. Astonishingly, these sheep were now capable of leaping higher than even the most agile of goats.

    Those who were Covid cowards need to stand up against tyranny in the future. It’s the least they can do. If you were one of those people who always diligently wore an ineffective mask, got the experimental vaccine and boosters, or performatively practiced social distancing, you really owe an apology to those who stood up for civil liberties during Covid and must commit to being smarter and braver in the future. The Covid years mark what was arguably the greatest encroachment on personal freedom and bodily autonomy in the history of our country. The government decimated the American economy by...

    Yelling that the future and their lives depend on ending fossil fuels, tens of thousands of protesters on Sunday kicked off a week where leaders will try once again to curb climate change primarily caused by coal, oil and natural gas. But protesters say it's not going to be enough. And they aimed their wrath directly at President Biden, urging him to stop approving new oil and gas projects, phase out current ones and declare a climate emergency with larger executive powers. “We hold the power of the people, the power you need to win this election,” 17-year-old Emma Buretta...

    In an incident on Sunday evening in the Liserons district of Nice, French police made a disturbing discovery. They found a cramped room where around forty innocent sheep were held captive. The sheep were intended for a barbaric ritual sacrifice associated with the Islamic holiday of Eid el-Kébir, also known as Eid al-Adha. The incident sheds light on the plight of animals during this bloody period. Authorities found the cramped apartment, owned by Côte d’Azur Habitat, containing these defenseless animals. The room’s tiny dimensions highlight the deplorable conditions where the sheep were being held. One of the sheep had already...

    June 4 is National Cheese Day. Not to be confused with other popular cheese related holidays like grilled cheese day, cheesecake day, or mac and cheese day. This day is in reverence of the queen of all dairy, the big cheese. Cheese and its many varieties are celebrated on National Cheese Day on June 4. History of National Cheese Day Cheese making is an ancient, some might even say sacred, craft. So ancient in fact it predates recorded history. It is speculated that the magic of cheese making began somewhere around 8000BCE shortly after the domestication of animals. Archeological digs...

    French gun owners are surrendering their weapons in record numbers at police collection points across the country as a round up of unlicensed firearms winds down. France is keen to limit the number of illegally owned firearms – as many as six million, authorities estimate – and the Macron government is offering an amnesty in an effort to limit their distribution. Rifles, handguns, ammunition, even knives and grenades, have been handed in at 300 collection points across the country since the start of the Ministry of Interior’s campaign on Nov. 25.

    David Limbaugh, author of The Resurrected Jesus: The Church in the New Testament, said in an interview aired on Monday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with Alex Marlow that gutless conservatives’ acceptance of leftist premises facilitates the “deliberate destruction” of America. “A lot of us are just sheep, even conservatives,” Limbaugh remarked. “We mouth these platitudes. We accept the premises, the unproven premises of climate change, for example, because we’re scared to death to challenge it, or Darwinism, or macroevolution.”

    A bizarre spectacle greeted the folk of Shawinigan, Québec over the weekend. A shepherd could be seen leading a flock of creatures with farmyard bells swinging from their neck, filling the air with the sound of baaaaa and chewing on greens when they arrived at their pen. But it wasn't a flock of sheep that had come grazing around the streets of Québec, but a Toronto-based group performing an immersive art project called 'Les Moutons'. In the performance, actors dressed as sheep are led around the city by their shepherd, who takes them to a pen before 'shearing' them. There,...
  • U.S. Sheep Herders Sue Employers for Cartel-Like Wage Suppression

    Reuters ^ | 6/2 | Leah Douglas
    Sheep herders in the U.S. West have banded together to sue their employers, accusing them of operating an illegal cartel that artificially suppresses their wages, according to court documents filed Wednesday in Nevada. The case could have implications for how antitrust laws are applied to labor markets, according to legal experts, as the Biden administration pushes for greater competition in every sector of the economy. The suit alleges that ranches coordinate through the Western Range Association (WRA), a ranching trade group, to suppress sheepherder wages and avoid competing for labor.

    Gavin Loxton has more than 5,000 sheep at the high-country farm he runs in Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, so he said it wasn’t surprising that he didn’t notice when one of his lambs was missing about four years ago. But he definitely noticed when the sheep was found. After several years on the run, the wayward male Merino was discovered on April 14 hiding in an outcropping of rocks on Mount Edward — which has an elevation 6,765 feet — with almost double his weight in wool. Shrekapo, as he was nicknamed by residents of the Lake Tekapo township, had...

Harvard has required students to get vaccinated and boosted and test for Covid twice a week, hectored us to wear masks nearly everywhere, and banned students from several communal spaces, including dining halls ... More concerning than the administration’s heavy-handedness has been the zombielike response of the student body. I ask my friends, “Why do young, fully vaccinated students continue to tolerate these irrational Covid restrictions?” While many of my peers acknowledge the excess, they shrug it off. The prevailing mood on campus is...
