    Tyson Foods Inc said on Tuesday it was mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for its entire workforce, joining a growing list of major U.S. companies as they face renewed pandemic restrictions due to the fast-spreading Delta variant. Surging COVID-19 cases and new guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that requires fully-vaccinated individuals to wear masks have led many companies to rethink their plans. Many of corporate America's biggest names have taken action following the CDC's guidance, including mask mandates from McDonald's Corp, Apple Inc and vaccination requirements by Walmart and Walt Disney. U.S. officials said on Monday...
  • Did the Dems Get Caught by NSA Wiretaps!!

    Maybe we’re looking in the wrong direction on this whole NSA issue. I can’t help but think that for the Dems to go to such lengths, there has to be some campaign money in it for them. Just like they pander to the far left whackos I.E., maybe they also have to protect themselves as well as pander to some of their big money supporters who may not want their overseas calls monitored by the Bush administration. This is just a first attempt to connect some dots, but it is interesting. Let’s start with Judge Robertson and the Clintons....
  • Huckabee offered 'no-cost' deal for Mexican Consulate

    An Arkansas commercial developer confirmed his role in a no-cost "incentive deal" packaged by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to attract a Mexican Consulate to Little Rock. Meanwhile, an Arkansas legislator expressed concern that Huckabee used taxpayer funds inappropriately in a plan ultimately designed to assist illegal immigrants in Arkansas. "Any taxpayer money that is used to help facilitate breaking the law is wrong," Green emphasized. WND previously reported Robert Trevino, commissioner of the Arkansas Rehabilitation Services, had signed a lease providing the Mexican Consulate space in an Arkansas Rehabilitations Services building at a cost of $1 per year. The...

    Associated Press NEW YORK -- NEW YORK Tyson Foods will no longer use antibiotics to raise chicken that is sold fresh in stores and will launch a $70 million advertising campaign to tout the shift, the nation's largest meat producer said Tuesday. The company said fresh chicken raised without antibiotics was shipped to stores Monday and will be sold beginning later this week in packaging that emphasizes that there are no artificial ingredients. "We're providing mainstream consumers with products they want," Tyson Chief Executive Richard L. Bond said at a news conference. Consumers will have to pay slightly more for...

    Activist — An article in Monday's Section A included incorrect information about animal rights activist Virgil Butler. It said that Butler took part in the U.S. invasion of Panama, where he recalled killing enemy soldiers, but the Army has no record of his service. The article stated that Butler shot a man to death in the parking lot of a bar and went to prison for manslaughter. In fact, he was convicted of felony burglary, and the shooting could not be confirmed. The article said Butler killed 80,000 birds a shift at a Tyson poultry plant. He did not slaughter...

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP)--A judge dismissed immigrant smuggling charges against Tyson Foods on Friday but allowed the trial of the poultry giant to continue on key conspiracy counts. U.S. District Judge R. Allan Edgar dismissed 15 charges, agreeing with Tyson's attorneys that prosecutors had failed to prove that the company or any managers requested two deliveries of illegal workers from undercover agents posing as smugglers. Tyson and some former managers are accused of hiring illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America as part of a conspiracy to boost production and profits at the nation's largest poultry processor. Tyson lawyers Friday...

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A former manager at a Tyson poultry plant admitted knowingly hiring illegal workers as prosecutors wrapped up their immigrant-smuggling case against Tyson Foods. Former Shelbyville plant manager Spencer Mabe, who pleaded guilty in deal with prosecutors, testified under cross-examination Thursday that although he was aware of illegal hirings and dealt with an immigrant smuggler, he never personally inspected employee hiring records. "Any time they came through a recruiter, I pretty much knew they were illegal," Mabe said. Mabe, who was fired in 2001, earlier told the federal court jury he went along with hiring illegal...

    A third of New York Democrats are urging her to run. Polls suggest that she is the only candidate capable of defeating President George W. Bush at the ballot box. Among a growing number of her supporters, only one question matters: can Hillary Clinton be persuaded to rescue her party in the 2004 presidential race?   Mrs Clinton has insisted that she intends to see out her term as New York senator, which ends in 2006, before possibly running for the presidency in 2008. But following Al Gore's announcement last week that he will not run for the presidency a...
