Trump is still due to pardon the turkeys Tuesday, a White House spokesman confirmed,...[photos at link]

    TOMS RIVER, N.J. — There was a time when Don Kliem enjoyed feeding sunflower seeds and millet to the wild turkeys that wandered near his ranch-style house in Toms River, N.J., a coastal town about 75 miles south of New York. “But then they got very bold,” said Mr. Kliem, 81. “They would knock on the door — peck on it to get our attention.”

Izzet Kurt, 53, of King of Prussia, Ozcan Kose, 34, of Rize, Turkey, and Oguz Kose, 35, of Rize, Turkey, were indicted by a grand jury --snip-- Upon the arrival, the government alleges, they were coached on how to avoid detection by U.S. Customs officials, and at times provided with fake IDs with the names of crew members.

    This week almost 50 million Americans will take planes, trains, automobiles (and even boats) to travel miles from home for Thanksgiving festivities according to AAA. The auto club sees more than a million extra travelers leaving home this year between now and the end of the month. Thanksgiving is traditionally of as a time for turkey and dinner with family, but given these statistics perhaps it ought to be thought of as a time for travel. After all, the first Thanksgiving was really about travel as well with Europeans having just finished the perilous journey across thousands of miles of...

    Speaking at his annual Thanksgiving turkey pardoning on Wednesday, President Barack Obama joked about raising teenage daughters, his critics and the 2016 presidential race. "As you may have heard, for months, there has been a fierce competition between a bunch of turkeys trying to win their way into the White House," Obama said.

    The American Thinker ^ | 11-26-15 | Carol Brown
    Well it’s that time of year again when the President of the United States pardons a turkey. And Obama being Obama, he used the occasion to bash Republicans, referring to them as “a bunch of turkeys.” More specifically: “As you may have heard, for months there has been a fierce competition between a bunch of turkeys trying to win their way into the White House.” What an obnoxious, thin-skinned, adolescent, insecure, smug, petty, and more than anything, evil little man. Election Day 2016 can’t come soon enough. Let’s make sure we win. And preferably, win big.

    [The following is an excerpt.] Could it be blowing from farm to farm in the dirt? Could determined starlings and pigeons be carrying it into poultry houses on their feet? Is it spreading in feed, or being carried on truck tires? Federal agriculture officials are looking everywhere they can think of for H5N2 bird flu, which has spread to poultry flocks in 14 states and killed or forced the slaughter of more than 39 million birds. Highly pathogenic avian influenza has never spread like this before in the United States, and it's flummoxed the U.S. Department of Agriculture, farmers and...

    A deadly bird flu strain was confirmed Friday at one North Dakota turkey farm and at four more in Minnesota, raising the number of farms affected across the Midwest to 20 and the toll to almost 1.1 million birds since the outbreak was first confirmed in early March. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the new cases in Minnesota of the highly contagious H5N2 strain are in Cottonwood, Lyon, Watonwan and Stearns counties. The four new farms housed a combined 189,000 turkeys. In North Dakota, State Veterinarian Susan Keller said the National Veterinary Services Laboratories in Iowa confirmed the H5N2...

    jim wright Expect to see more wild turkeys in the coming months as they congregate near food sources, an expert says. Here's a toast to turkeys — not the ones gracing so many dinner plates a week from today, but the wild ones that have made a remarkable comeback in New Jersey in recent decades after disappearing in the mid-1850s. Since the state Division of Fish and Wildlife reintroduced wild turkeys to the state with the release of 22 birds in 1977, the population has grown to more than 20,000.  Folks will likely start seeing more and more flocks...

    This week, the Vatican has hosted an international colloquium called Humanum dedicated to “the complementarity of man and woman” and the importance of marriage. Not just limited to Catholics, the conference has included people from many different faiths, including a litany of the United States’ anti-LGBT conservatives. The messages of Humanum have sounded mostly like excerpts from Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, asserting various archaic gender stereotypes as evidence that men and women are uniquely designed to be together — and that no other relationship should ever be considered a marriage. For example, Russell Moore, media-savvy...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 9/8/14 | Robert Spencer
    When two staunch foes of Israel like Obama and Erdogan discuss combating anti-Semitism, they are either performing for the cameras or mean that they need to put yet more pressure on Israel. For in the view of Leftists and Islamic supremacists, if there is any anti-Semitism, it is because of the alleged misdeeds of Israel. If Israel makes another series of concessions to the “Palestinian” jihadis, all will be well. “Obama and Erdogan Discuss Fighting Anti-Semitism,” by Ben Ariel, Arutz Sheva, September 6, 2014: U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to combat anti-Semitism, the...

    After showing the growing size of turkeys raised in the U.S. over the last 32 years, we wondered how much money U.S. turkey producers were making per bird. After all, if they're producing more meat on each bird and are therefore satisfying consumer demand for turkey meat while raising fewer birds, the increase in productivity of U.S. turkey farmers should be putting some serious cash in their pockets. But that doesn't consider their costs of doing business. Bigger birds likely eat a lot more, which means that they cost more to raise. Our chart below shows the average farm income...

    With two other turkeys ticketed for a presidential pardon at the White House, their brother met Minnesota's governor Monday at a state Capitol ceremony featuring much of the same upbeat pageantry ahead of a far gloomier fate for the bird. Jokingly dubbed "Delicious" by a farmer traveling with the 20-pound gobbler, the unfortunate turkey enjoyed only a brief stay of execution - not a reprieve - during a ceremony laced with gallows humor at Gov. Mark Dayton's Capitol office. The next stop for the pink and white bird: a trip to the St. Paul Salvation Army and, eventually, dinner for...
