Trump: A Disaster For Animals As Well As People
by Animals Can't Complain
31 Oct 2018
Modified: 05:09:57 PM
Corporate media censors death penalty abolitionists, antiwar activists, the Kevin De Leon campaign for the Senate, and animal rights workers. Yet over 90% of the world wants animals protected. It is a long spectrum of concern from those who care only about their pets to those who care about all beings.
126 Of Many Ways Donald Trump Harms Animals People Birds Fishes Butterflies Bees The Watershed and Mother Earth
Trump's 1st VA Secretary David Shulkin stated he approved of research on dogs. Trump's 2nd VA Secretary Robert Wilkie in August 2018 secretly added Louis Stokes VA in Cleveland Oh to the VA's centers researching on dogs.
Trump this year once again endorsed white supremacist and dogfight promoter Republican Steve King of Iowa, the nation's
2nd worst animal abusing congressman.
The lawless Wild West prevails in the Trump Zinke regime, from the animals Trump has bombed in 6 countries to the fishes strangling in nets Trump & Zinke have killed millions of animals.
Trump in March of 2017 killed 1000 civilians and millions of animals in bombings in Mosul, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen. In April he added to his violent record with
over 50 missile strikes in Syria, acting without congressional approval. In addition he dropped what was called 'the mother of all bombs' costing 16 million dollars (while he cut aid to famine torn Africa) on the innocent people, vulnerable animals and fragile environment of Afghanistan.
Trump's record re animals: a partial list:
1a. The most serious of all is Trump's opposition to the world's climate change plans and promotion of pipelines. The UN has warned in October 2018 that the world has only 12 years left to avert a major catastrophe. The UN is not speaking about the hurricanes, flooding, fires, global baking, sea temperatures 85 degrees and higher, already happening but about a point of no return.
He allows Ryan Zinke to initiate drilling, mining, lumber industries in national parks, plundering and pillaging. Every one of those industries destroys trees, making the world hotter..
Record breaking tempeeratures are baking the earth. Climate extremes threaten all beings on the planet.
1b. Trump actively promotes fossil fuels.
2a. Elephants, rhinos, giraffes and other species are threatened with extinction, yet
Donald Trump's 2 sons are trophy hunters. Trump Jr is shown have severed the tail of an elephant he just murdered.
Trump Sr took Trump Jr's advice and appointed a fellow trophy hunter Ryan Zinke to head the Dept of Interior He is a former Navy Seal who has murdered at least 1 elephant (Trump Jr is shown holding an elephant's severed tail). Because of his 2 sons and Zinke, as well as contributions from wealthy members of the Safari Club,
Trump reversed Obama's ban on importation of ivory and other parts of slaughtered elephants.
2b. Zinke enjoys stalking innocent animals in the woods and then murdering them. He has harmed many species since taking office and is using tax dollars to promote trophy hunting despite holding a position of authority in which he is charged with protecting animals. He is trying to eliminate many species from the Endangered Species Act. In 2017 one Trump's sons celebrated Earth Day by shooting innocent prairie dogs. Our taxes pay Secret Service men to watch Donald Jr and Eric as they murder moose in Maine Montana. or elsewhere.
2c Zinke has appointed a trophy hunters' council to promote the sociopathic blood sport at public expense. Taxes will support travel expenses, a paid staff etc. Arrogant Ryan Zinke ignores the 2015 Marist poll that 90% of Americans oppose trophy hunting and 60% want to ban it altogether.
2d Trump was endorsed by the Safari Club International, 50,000 mammal butchers whose blood lust has slaughtered millions of creatures.
2e. Several Safari Club members on Trump Zinke trophy hunter council have murdered some of the last rhinos still on earth.
'US Fish And Wildlife Service deputy director Greg Sheehan, Safari Club member attended group’s convention in Las Vegas when it awarded its “professional hunter of the year” honors to a South African man who has been fined for leading hunts of endangered black rhinos.' Stephanie Mencimer of MotherJones
3 Trump's subordinates erased the entire USDA lab inspection data base (inspection of cruel animal torture research labs)
4 Trump pardoned the Hammonds, deer poachers and arsonists of public lands who burned animals...
5 The hunter dominated National Rifle Assoc. gave Trump support
6 Because Donald Trump has already illegally immorally and unconstitutionally bombed 6 countries (Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia etc) he continues the mass animal slaughter of wars in which animals are bombed, crushed by tanks, seized to be eaten, abandoned by refugees etc.
7 Trump started up Trump Steaks which failed.
8 Countless mammals, birds, fishes are murdered for Trump restaurant food. a. veal obtained by electroshocking mothers away from their baby calves before killing the calves b. He and Mitt Romney dined on the severed legs of frogs at Trump Towers. c. At Mar a Lago Trump provides caviar ripped from the ovaries of sturgeons.
d. Countless chickens pigs and cows are in factory farms. Their stolen products
are served in Trump restaurants.
9 There are very few grizzlies left but Trump and Zinke want them no longer protected as they and senators like Rob Portman of Ohio, John Thune of South Dakota worked to bring hunters into the national parks, endangering children, tourists, those who live on the park borders, and the defenseless animals. He and every Republican senator except the ailing Isakson, and over 200 Republican representatives passed and signed a joint resolution authorizing that Alaska state and not we the citizens of the US would have the power to set wildlife regulations in the national park there. As a result, bear cubs and wolf puppies may be murdered in their dens by hunters, aerial hunting which is banned in several countries is allowed there, and hunters may bait bear traps with food. Don Young, the most cruel man in the US House, coordinated the effort.
10 Trump appointed the US' main proponent of the mass slaughter of pigs, the governor of Iowa, Terry Bradshaw, to be ambassador to China.
11 Trump has asked primate abuser Francis Collins to stay on as director of animal torture center, National Institutes of Health and is keeping vivisector of millions of animals Fauci there.
12 Trump has made superhawk, chickenhawk and former meat lobbyist John Bolton a national security adviser.
13 Trump responded to the pushing of Alaska senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan by legalizing trophy hunters' aerial hunting in our Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, hidden baited traps and snares for bears, the murder of Alaska bear cubs and wolf puppies.
14 Trump, Zinke, the EPA have acted to cause oil drilling, mining, tree killing in the national parks. This has caused destruction of animal habitat, deforestation worsening Western drought, water pollution, animal slaughter, especially that of fledgeling birds, squirrels, raccoons and other tree animals.
15. Trump and Zinke have reduced protections for marine mammals, turtles, fishes, octopi, coral reefs etc. He is working to end the protections of the Endangered Species Act nationally as well as ending the funding of state programs to protect endangered species.
16. Trump and Zinke have initiated offshore drilling in Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf.
17. Trump's Zinke, head of the DOI, is portrayed as all cuddly by CBS for allowing dogs in the workplace.. no mention by CBS of his plan to murder bears US Fish and Wildlife has plans to end Endangered Species Act protections for Greater Yellowstone's grizzly bears and allow states to move forward with trophy hunts.
16. Trump has allowed the Army Corps of Engineers to continue their slaughter of cormorants.
19. He and Zinke have removed protections for Yellowstone bears
20. At Trump's golf courses, people are not allowed to drive golf carts on greens, endangering toads, butterflies etc. Trump ignores the rules.
21. Trump has broken his promise to rein in the pricegouging animal torturing drug companies.
22. His border wall if implemented would harm thousands of species of animals and plants.
23. Pruitt is gone. Trump, Wheeler and Bannon continue to dismantle the EPA. 20 years of secrecyabout DuPont's Chemours division poisoning animals and fishes of Cape Fear River now poison Wilmington NC's drinking water.
24. Trump and Zinke are planning to reduce Olympia Washington national park's mountain goats. Murder of the goats is being considered.
25. According to the pig butchers' site pigprogress.net Trump before Nov 2016 was on record supporting ag gag laws and the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act which criminalize peaceful protest and freedom of speech.
26 Donald Trump Jr who convinced his father to make fellow Trump hunter Zinke head of DOI.. was also involved in convincing his father to further elephant massacres by lifting the ban on elephant parts. In the following Guardian link he is shown holding the severed tail of an elephant
'about the time I’ve had enough of sitting in a whitetail stand, I get a bit of a lull and then I go right into turkey season. Then summer comes, and I’ve been fortunate to have done quite a bit of bowhunting in Africa, and I’ve taken 15 or 16 species there. Then fall comes and I’m out west, where I’ve taken elk and numerous mule deer. I’ve also hunted sheep and caribou, but mostly with a rifle. Of course, whitetails are big for me because they’re the most accessible. I can roll out of bed at my cabin and choose from five treestands within 500 yards of the front door.' quote is from bowhunter com
27. After Trump and Zinke opened up marine mammals, Yellowstone bears, Olympia Washington goats to slaughter and animal habitat to oil drilling, they plan to sell out wild horses.
28. There are very few grizzly bears left but Trump, Zinke, Rob Portman, senator from Ohio, the NRA want to open up the national parks to hunters. Hunters have killed into extinction countless species.
29. Trump nominated a dovehunter to the Supreme Court
30. Trump Zinke and USFWS rescinded Obama's ban on bringing ivory and other
trophies from elephant murder into the US
31 Trump's criminal neglect of Puerto Rico has killed people and animals who have died of thirst, lack of food and medical care
32. How is the Trump regime like the dairy farms receiving subsidies from the US govt? It separates mothers from their children through ICE, through repressive jailing of marijuana using mothers, and from women in the military killed in illegal immoral wars
33 Trump and Zinke promote trophy hunting of bison in Grand Canyon ... murder of bison and endangerment of tourists
34 Trump has promoted the animal torture budgets of NIH, the CDC, USDA, DOI, the Pentagon, the CIA, the Dept of Justice, EPA, Dept of Transportation, VA, and other agencies torturing animals in labs. In some way or other virtually every federal agency harms animals.
35 Trump has violated the Arctic wilderness sanctuary, as Henry Paulson of Goldman Sachs before him in regards to Nature Conservancy opening it to cattle ranches, by letting oil drillers into it. They poison the animals' watershed and destroy their forest habitat
36 Trump and GOP did not pass a single animal protection bill in 2017
There were five bills of which a majority of the House (Democrats and Republicans) approved, but House GOP didn’t approve a single animal protection bill in 2017.
37 Under Trump, FEMA during the Puerto Rican hurricane crisis was bringing in Vienna sausages, cheeses, and chocolate puddings..
38 When Trump and Ajit Pai of the FCC ended net neutrality, opening up censorship of
citizens and all internet users by huge corporations, they expanded the muzzling of groups which protect animals from vegans ti animal rescue groups.
39 Trump, Pruitt, Zinke and Perry have decided that 90% of US coastal waters will be subject to oil drilling, despite the fact that there are massive dead zones in which all the fish have died already in the Chesapeake and Gulf from BP's neurotoxin Corexit, from illegal nuclear waste dumping, insecticides, fertilizers, thousands of chemicals, illegal human waste dumping etc. This if it were to happen would slaughter trillions of fishes, as whale as countless whales, dolphins and other marine mammals. Trump has seen to it that Florida where he has Mar a Lago will not be included, only everywhere else.
40 The failure of Trump and his cabinet to provide sufficient aid to states with record breaking
numbers of fires from the summer of 2017 to the recent California fires has meant
the death of billions of mammals, birds, reptiles, bees, butterflies
41 Cliven Bundy and his 2 sons owe Americans 1 million $ in federal grazing fees...
It's time for Trump to end the support of climate extremes, human disease, and
mammal murder caused by meat. It's time to stop allowing federal lands to be used in that way.
42 Murdered animal cadavers under Trump's rule will be even more toxic to consume since
a. Trump's USDA has fewer meat inspectors and b. the USDA has fewer filthy and diseased meat and fish recalls
43 Trump,DOI Ryan Zinke, the NRA, Safari Club Int'l, trophy hunters, the Congressional (blood)Sportsmen's Caucus worked to have hunting in our national parks. Senator Portman of Ohio has also worked to endanger the animals and people in our parks.
44 Trump and Zinke have withdrawn Obama legislation which held utilities responsible for protecting millions of birds.
45 "At the bar of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, you can order a crystal spoonful of Hungarian wine for $140. Cocktails run from $23 for a gin and tonic to $100 for a vodka concoction with raw oysters and caviar. There’s a seafood pyramid called “the Trump Tower” that costs $120, or you can hit BLT Prime, a restaurant where the $59 salt-aged Kansas City strip steak comes with a long-shot chance of seeing the President sitting nearby." Alex Altman of Time Mag
46 Cliven Bundy and his 2 sons owe Americans 1 million $ in federal grazing fees...
It's time for Trump to end the support of mammal murder by allowing federal lands to be used in that way.
47 Trump's and Ajit Pai's removal of net neutrality allows internet giants
to censor animal rights and environment groups
48 Trump and Zinke work to allow loggers on federal lands. In the past these loggers have caused birds' nests to fall rolling away empty, their smashed fledglings or splattered eggshells on the ground.
49 a giant leap backward Trump and NASA do radiation testing on monkeys...
many years after the movie Project X was made about Dr Don Barnes' refusal to irradiate primates at Brooks Air Force Base
50 Trump, Ryan Zinke, Mick Mulvaney, and Brian Steed allocate over 1 billion dollars being subcontracted to cattle ranchers to terrorize wild mustangs hunting them with helicopters and sending them to slaughterhouses so that their presence doesn't bother big oil drillers and cattle killers.
51. In Sterling Virginia, Trump cut down 400 trees along the Potomac destroying animal and bird habitat when building one of his many environment destroying golf courses. (See NYTimes)
52 Under his nominee for the VA, Shulkin 'At the VA Medical Center in Los Angeles U.S. taxpayers have been funding a narcoleptic dog colony of Dobermans for the sole purpose of being given methamphetamine and then euthanized so their brains can be dissected.' *1
53 Money is diverted from veterans to animal torture. At yet another VA Medical Center, McGuire in Richmond, VA, dogs have pacemakers placed in them. Eventually the dogs are all killed. *2
54 Trump nominated Scott Pruitt knowing he was an executioner of prisoners and a wholly owned subsidiary of fossil fuel interests. In addition Pruitt sued to wipe out California's law giving chickens bigger cages.
55 Trump and Chao have been inactive in improving vegan options on Amtrak. He has been inactive in improving vegan options in all federal agencies.
56 Trump Zinke, NRA, Safari Club lobbied to invade mother bears' hibernating dens
and murder their bear cubs in a national park wildlife refuge in Alaska. Every single Republican senator except the ailing Izakson voted for it. Every single Democrat senator voted against it. Trump signed it into law in April 2018.
57. In his immoral unconstitutional violation of international law in
bombing Syria in April of 2018, Trump may have burned research animals alive in research centers.
58 Trump's Army Corps Of Engineers has once again taken it on itself to murder cormorants Public outcry has changed the plan
to invasion of cormorant nests to destroy their eggs. The Army Corps apparently thinks that only humans not cormorants should eat salmon.
Cormorants have an excuse but humans do not for causing suffocation to innocent beings whose bodies are full of radiation mercury etc.
59. Trump's selection Sonny Perdue for the USDA sent through the gate to perdition by murder 1.3 million native animals in 2017
Trump's USDA murders 1.3 million native animals in 2017
60 Politico article: "Ronn Torossian’s firm is connected to Eric Trump Foundation. worked in defense of Iowa-based Kosher meat magnate Sholom Rubashkin, who would soon be convicted in federal court on dozens of fraud and money laundering charges
In December 2017 Trump commuted the remainder of Rabaskin’s sentence, the first time he has exercised that particular presidential power"
Dr Richard Schwartz, author of articles at jewishveg. com/schwartz
has said "Kosher meat is impossible to achieve.. there is always blood in the tiny
61. Animal, bird and fish flesh, eggs and dairy cause more deaths in the US annually than war, traffic, cigarettes combined.
The Trump dominated CDC continues to lie saying that tobacco is the biggest killer and to focus on the 3% of food poisoning
fatalities caused by human handling or water and sewage contamination of vegetables rather than the 97% caused not by
external conditions but the intrinsic ecoli (colon bacteria) in all cadavers of murdered mammals, birds, and fishes,
or contamination of products containing milk or eggs.
62. Trump and Pruitt support filthy coal which kills miners in explosions, caveins, diseases such as black lung and emphysema.
Pruitt has reinstituted mountaintop decapitation with itsdynamite... it murders animals, destroys their habitat, poisons
their water, turns green carpeted mountains into muddy piles.
63. Trump, Pruitt, Zinke and Perry support fossil fuels over solar, wind, thermal and other nonviolent energy systems.
Their promotion of oil for the Koch Brothers and other petroplutocratshe
a. chokes to death marine mammals, birds, fishes, turtles, octopi, coral etc with oil spills
b. They poison all the above with Corexit, a nerve toxin
c. They destroy animal habitat on land through drilling
d. They poison the watershed with oil spills and therefore poison animals etc
64. Trump's EPA has been inactive about 5,000,000
plastic straws distributed in the US daily... many end up in the sea
killing or harming sea beings. Pruitt has done nothing about the Texas sized island of never biograding plastic
between Hawaii and California which kills many sea creatures through suffocation or entrapment.
65. Animals as well as humans must breathe
Calif Wash and 13 other states and DC are suing EPA over reduction of air quality standards and emission standards in cars... which would make American cars less competitive in world market besides harming all beings who need air.
66 Trump's and Perdue's food stamp program kills and injures animals, people and the environment.
The program should be reformed... rather than subsidize animal murder and the human disease it generates, with concomitant health care costs, it is time for any resident of the White House Senate or House to promote fruit stamps
which could be used for fruits and vegetables, seeds, nuts, of infinite avriety.
67 Trump and Perdue of the USDA are wiping out Michelle Obama's healthy reforms to school lunches as they reinstitute
more meat fish dairy sugar etc while ending a requirement of fruit and vegetables at every meal.
68 Trump and Pruitt are working to roll back wetlands protections... which if successful will harm birds reptiles and fishes while and further heating up the planet in summer
69 Trump picked animal killing vivisector Eli Lilly exec Alex Azar to head HHS...
after saying that he Trump wanted to campaign against pricegouging drug companies. Eli Lilly worked with Senator Bill Frist of United Health Care in the G W Bush administration to exempt drug companies from liability for deaths and injuries from their toxic vaccines.
70. Trump is working to make slaughterhouse lines faster and more dangerous... 'let them determine their own evisceratioe speeds'
All of Trump Pruitt and Zinke deregulations are harming
people, mammals, birds, fishes, reptiles, butterflies,
bees, trees and plants.
71 rules have been overturned regarding flood standards for bldgs.
72 Dow Chemical's carcinogenic insecticide ban overturned

101 Factory polluters have fewer rules
102 Dangerous freight safety standards on trains have been removed
103 Trump withdrew from the Paris climate treaty thumbing his nose at 174 countries
plus all the EU countries. In so doing he honored his oil gas treekilling and other earth destroying donors.
104 The sage grouse is no longer protected.
105 In 2018 Trump decided to allow elephant murder after putting a hold on it. He listened to trophy hunters Don Trump Jr, his brother and Ryan Zinke..
106 Trump's CDC has protected the ranchers, factory farmers, etc who murder animals and took over 7 months to report the salmonella outbreak in 26 states involving raw turkey
107 Trump has with criminal negligence let fires consume people, animals, birds, trees in 10 Western states. He has not sent in the military to help. The planes which could drop water are elsewhere bombing people and causing fires.
108 Trump and the GOP have subsidized cattle ranchers.
109. The food stamp program continues to be welfare for butchers and dairy farmers as it pays for the purchase of these items.
Donald Trump Jr who convinced his father to make fellow Trump hunter Zinke head of DOI.. was also involved in convincing his father to further elephant massacres by lifting the ban on elephant parts. In the following Guardian link he is shown holding the severed tail of an elephant https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/nov/16/trump-sons-us-lifts-impo... …
'about the time I’ve had enough of sitting in a whitetail stand, I get a bit of a lull and then I go right into turkey season.

111 The Trump regime FDA chief Scott Gottlieb has ruled that only the cowkilling dairy industry or other animal abusers can use the term milk.
112. Trump's Zinke will no longer require miners, drillers, loggers or rancher killers to make compensation for their environmental damage
As of July 2018 His daughter Ivanka is shutting down her fashion company which used the fur of murdered rabbits, skins of murdered cows in her clothing and shoe lines. (Her sweat shops in China have 62 hour shifts and low pay)
114 Whenever Trump has built a golf course, he has bulldozed trees and destroyed animal habitats.
115 Trump and Perdue of the USDA are killing 35,000 animals a year in the USDA's Wildlife Services division which should be renamed Wildlife Slaughter.

Trump's billions in subsides to pig butchers, dairy cow abusers, chicken factory farmers begin
122. The Trump regime has not yet lifted its ban on beekilling insecticides and chemicals. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-bees...
220 of 235 House Republicans voted to authorize the murder of sea lions, in a bill promoted by Ryan Zinke trophy hunter heading the Dept of Int because of Don Trump Jr trophy hunter. The same # of GOP in House voted for aerial hunting. http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2018/roll294.xml
124. Trump simultaneously harmed and promoted dairy farmers with his tariff expansion which has set in motion
a cycle of more tariff retaliation. Therefore he has promoted animal agriculture with deficit expanding subsidies.
He specifically promoted the cruel dairy industry in his publicity in relation to Canada. http://ohdairy.mercyforanimals.org
71 to 102 NYTimes story on 67 environmental rules Trump and Zinke are working to end
Take action now to protect grizzlies from trophy hunting!
In just the Interior Department Trump & Zinke want roads bulldozed thru AK wilderness. The are endangering 10 threatened species, want to expose every coastal state but Florida to oil spills, want Georgia Pacific & other treekillers to ax ancient trees, are opening forests to miners etc.
53 Of The Ways The World's Militaries War On Animals
Nearly every military in the world harms animals. All wars are wars on animals birds and fishes as well as forests.
Trillions of animals died in World War I and II. Countless trillions of animals died in World War II of atom bomb testing as they were left behind in the desert. 20 million horses died in World War I.
Animals are voiceless victims of the 12 wars Hillary Clinton has hawkishly advocated while Secretary of State. Animals are bombed, burned, starved, smashed by tanks, shot by machine guns, abandoned by refugees, bulldozed in zoos, abandoned in warzones by soldiers returning home. They are kidnapped to pull loads, seized butchered and eaten, tortured in military labs. Dolphins. shackled into being forced bomb carriers and dogs as forced minesniffers have been blown to smithareens.
Animals have been the devoured, the blinded, the maimed,
the dis-armed, the trampled, the lamed
They died freezing, blown apart, drowned, unfamed,
these helpless victims, silent and unnamed
It is likely that military in other countries harm animals. Do citizens
of the US have a duty first to end cruelty at home?.
BOMBS WHICH BURN
1 People animals birds are killed burned blown apart by bombs, rockets, missiles.
2 People animals birds are blown apart by mines of war profiteers
both when forced into service as dolphin or dog minesniffers
or as unsuspecting victims of mines... A rhino whose legs
were turned to jelly by a landmine in Africa was one
of billions of animal, bird and other victims of landmines.
Children think the land mines are toys and blow off their hands
picking them up.
USE OF ANIMALS AS WEAPONS CARRIERS
3 The US regime under Reagan pretrained mules as Afghan ammunitions carriers. The mules were blown up not only by accidents on the trails but by combatants.
4 The US Navy has electroshocked porpoises and turned them into weapons carriers. (See Day of the Dolphin by former navy researcher Lilly)
BOMBING OF OIL REFINERIES
5 Whales, dolphins, fishes, turtles, sea birds are killed in oil spills from bombing power plants. 15,000 tons of oil
have been dumped into the Mediterranean by the Israeli
bombing of a Lebanese power plant.
ZOOS BULLDOZED AND BOMBED
6 Animals are bulldozed (killed or backs broken) in zoos in wartorn areas.*
The Nazis bombed London zoos. Churchill retaliated
bombing the Berlin Zoo. The Israeli Defense Force
bulldozed the Gaza Zoo, breaking the backs of those
who survived deaths by crushing.
ENTOMBED BY BOMBS
7. Bears and other animals are sealed into Afghan caves by bombs
WHALES DOLPHINS KILLED BY SONAR OF NAVY SHIPS
8 Naval warships' sonar kills whales.
9 Animals are seized, slaughtered and eaten by armies.
10 Animals disoriented by bombs run away from their homes.
REFUGEE AND SOLDIER ABANDONMENT
11a Animals are abandoned in the US by refugees and by soldiers
11b Dogs taken overseas by the USAF, those which survived
the bombs, the landmines, the bullets, were often left behind...
in Vietnam, Iraq etc.
Propaganda by the US Air Force on the use of dogs
and other animals in the Iraq and many other wars.
INSTITUTIONAL SHUT DOORS
12 Animals are not allowed in to all refugee camps. The US Red Cross
after a worldwide outcry re its gunbacked separation of people
from animals has begun to change its rules on this.
ANIMAL HABITAT DESTROYED
13 Animal habitat (trees, orchards, vines, plants, watersheds) are destroyed by daisy cutter, bunker
buster and other bombs, cruise missiles etc. Tanks crush
sapling trees and add to the desertification of the planet.
They create erosion ruts and cause mudslindes in areas
14 Depleted uranium is giving animals as well as people
cancer,81 times the average in Baghdad.
BOMBING OF REFUGEES
15 Animals as well as people have died as supply convoys
were foiled by bombed roads and bridges, and as
convoys have been fired upon. In the Highway of Death
bombing directed by G H W Bush, 250,000 white flagged
surrendering soldiers as well as refugees with donkeys,
cats, dogs, goats, cows, chickens etc. were carpet
bombed and bulldozed into graves.
UNABLE TO ESCAPE PENS, CAGES, ROPES
16. Some abandoned animals are left tied up without war
and are dying of thirst and or heat or cold
17. Motorists racing to get out of bombing areas are
mowing down goats, cats, dogs, chickens, sheep on the roads.
PROPELLER AND TANK DEATHS OF BIRDS, MARINE MAMMALS, FISHES
18. Naval warships carve up marine mammals in their
propellers as jetfighters carve up birds in their propellers.
Tanks have crushed untold trillions of small mammals,
ground nesting birds, frogs, snakes, ants in anthills,
and countless other species.
ALCOHOL RELEASED ABUSE
19. American soldiers drinking have shot
tigers and lions in the Baghdad Zoo.
20. Donkeys and dogs have been shot at Israeli govt checkpoints
21a. Currently Samuel Aronson of Brookhaven is irradiating squirrel monkeys in NASA's latest military research. http\://www.pcrm.org/resch/anexp/nasa.html
NASA's military missions have involved secreting
animals aboard. This is unpublicized. Many secreted animals
were with the astronauts blown apart by Lockheed and
NASA against public will announces it intends to irradiate captive primates in its war to militarize space
22 Animals die in military weapons research labs. Primates
have been irradiated at Barnes Air Force Base in Texas.
23 They have been put in restraining chairs for months
at a time in astronaut studies at Bethesda Naval and
24 Animals die in military contract ‘vaccine’ research.
25 When PETA was successful in cancelling the US Dept
of Defense use of living dogs as target practice for the
(unnecessary) training of surgeons, the DOD simply
substituted goats, making them truly scapegoats. Now

love relationship with them, and turned
over to the South Vietnamese Army. Many
were killed and eaten.

In World War 2 on Cat Island off the coast of
Mississippi, the military had a 3 month dogtraining
program. Their mission was to develop 20,000
attack dogs who could smell the difference between
a Japanese soldier and an American soldier. It
was hoped these dogs could be an advance team
to take Pacific islands from the Japanese.
Japanese American soldiers were used as bait.
They were ordered to beat the dogs over and over
so that the dogs would hate them and attack them.
The program failed because the dogs could discover
no difference between the smell of the Japanese American
soldiers and the other soldiers.

American soldiers are required to kill docile animals during military “survival skills” training courses and are instructed to use their bare hands, rocks, or blunt instruments on chickens, rabbits, goats, and snakes as part of “emergency food procurement exercises.”
Reports reveal that animals die a slow and agonizing death after being bludgeoned, strangled, or decapitated. An Army course manual instructs soldiers to kill a chicken “by placing its head under a strong stick, placing both your feet on either end of the stick … and pulling vigorously until its head is pulled off.” Another Army manual says, “You can club small mammals or step on them.”
Department of the Air Force Instructor Guide: Basic Combat Survival Training Field Training
1. Club to kill animal
3. 550 cord (to suspend animal and tie live animal to tree)
4. Containers/utensils for cooking
The U.S. Army, Air Force, and Marines have confirmed that at least six military courses currently engage in these exercises year-round, and there have been many reports of others. Government documents show that two Air Force bases alone use more than 1,500 rabbits each year, at a cost of more than $10,000.1 According to a 1997 Department of Defense (DoD) report, the Air Force kills more rabbits in its “survival skills” courses than does the entire DoD in all its research facilities combined.2 Estimates reveal that well over 10,000 animals are used every year in military food procurement exercises.
Typically, soldiers either carry their own animals in a backpack for several days before killing them or the animals are taken by vehicle into the woods, where they are “liberated” and then “recaptured,” says Sergeant Fredrickson of Dugway Proving Ground. Eyewitness accounts describe soldiers who are “required to stroke the rabbit to calm it, then bash it on the head … the rabbits don’t always die with the first blow.”
The military claims that these exercises are a necessary part of troop preparation. Major Tammy Miracle of the Massachusetts National Guard claims that killing docile animals “prepares a soldier to fight in today’s modern battlefield.” She admits that although “this type of training may seem unusual … readiness remains to be the Army Guard’s overarching priority.”
These exercises, however, fail to teach relevant skills to soldiers who may one day experience life-threatening adverse conditions. It is pointless for a soldier to practice killing small domestic mammals and birds, considering that in a real-life survival experience, few would have trouble killing such an animal if survival depended on it. After all, soldiers do not practice by killing other humans in order to be effective in combat situations. In the past, there have been occasions when such exercises were canceled after receiving national exposure3—yet thousands of animals continue to suffer each year on military bases that pursue this training.
Please contact your senators and representative and request that they introduce language into this year’s Defense Appropriations Bill that explicitly prohibits the use of your taxpayer dollars to purchase live animals for military “survival skills training.” If you don’t know their contact information, please call the Congressional Switchboard at 202-225-3121, provide your state or zip code, and ask to be transferred to their offices or click here to obtain the information through a web page.

15 Ways AntiHealth Departments Connected To Pharmaceutical
Servants of the CDC Operate
1.Across the country, many health
departments ignore the many salmonella and ecoli violations
at mega fast food outlets while bringing down great force on small
2. In league with realtors, health departments bulldozed brick
homes, harassing homeowners as they attempted to create a scarcity
of housing and consequent high rents. Now with tens of thousands
of homes vacant in big American cities, the rent bubbles still have not burst.
3. Many health departments enforce compulsory mowing ordinances
which violate the first amendment
4. Health department directors and sanitarians, building inspectors
5. Health departments are eliminating fireflies, monarch butterflies,
dragonflies, and countless diverse species as they spray poisons in
the air of communities, poisoning the waters and air, violating
the will of the people and enriching huge chemical companies.
6. Health departments in concert with the CDC are deliberately
misclassifying Mad Cow, Mad Pig, Mad Chicken, Mad Fish, Mad Deer
and other BSE deaths as meningitis,
encephalitis, leukemia, Alzheimer’s, brain tumors etc.
7. Health departments have given orders to remove centenarian trees
as they dictate to homeowners what they can do on their own
8. Health departments have been involved in a genocidal war against
rats and have violated the spiritual beliefs of Franciscans, Buddhists,
Hindus, Sufis, Jains and many others whose religions teach that all life is sacred.
9. In many cities a mayor can use many agencies in a coordinated
attack against his political opponents.
A disgruntled neighbor can activate
the local health department,
building inspection, animal control,
police, fire inspectors can give
a constant parade of harrassers to
someone. Health department officials have
been known to threaten calls to the building
inspector unless their privacy invading
‘sanitarian’ is allowed in.
10. Through compulsory pet
vaccinations, through promotion
of Glaxo, Roche, Aventis, Chiron
and other war profiteer ‘flu’ shots,
health departments enable
the engorging of international
11. A Canton Ohio health department
director threatened a resident with
jail because she was feeding a stray
12. Health departments comb
the yards of the poor for feces
from their pets while ignoring
factory farms and slaughterhouse
operations (Smithfield, Tyson’s, Perdue,
Cargill, Ohio Fresh Eggs, DeCoster’s) which
dump untold trillions of gallons
of feces and urine into the
13. In many cities, the local health
department has pressured city councils
into trapping cats and dogs rather than spaying them. Why? Because
laboratories such as Harvard, UC Davis,
Univ of Texas, Univ of Wisconsin, Yale,
Cornell, Princeton, Yerkes, Emory
want a constant stream of animals
14. Raccoons are being poisoned
with what the public is told
is rabies vaccine.
15. The socalled West Nile Virus comes
to carnivorous birds and is misnamed
.. the CDC and Health Dept. in order
to avoid panic about the pandemic
of Avian Spongiform Encephalopathy
or Mad Chicken has lied about this.
The Ecoli Scam
The animal flesh industry dominated government agencies around the world do not
publicize the billions of food poisoning cases annually,
the cancer, heart disease, Mad Cow, Mad Pig, Mad Chicken
Mad Fish etc.
The CDC and public ‘health’ departments in the US
have many gullible people in the populace convinced
that unclean hands are the main cause of ecoli or colon
bacteria. In reality, the fast food outbreaks of ecoli
are censored. Non animal sources of ecoli are one tenth
of one percent, perhaps, of the total.
Dr John Harvey Kellogg, MD, relative of someone who
founded Kellogg Cereals, studied colon bacteria and found that within 4 hours of a mammal’s murder, the
ecoli had multiplied by billions.
When mammals are murdered, they are waiting in queue, terrified, hearing the screams of their friends or family. They defecate in fright, all over themselves, all over their hair covered skin, all over the floor They
are disemboweled, sometimes while still alive but there is no way to remove all the colon (the term e coli is used to hide the intestinal waste origins) bacteria.

51 Republican senators in 2017 voted to allow trophy hunters to employ planes to murder the mammals who have been protected in ANWR, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This includes murdering bear cubs and wolf puppies in their dens, hiding bear traps etc. Not a single Democrat or Independent voted for the bill which Trump quickly signed into law.
225 Republican representatives voted for the same bill. Only 5 Democrat representatives voted for it.
In addition, 225 Republican congresspersons voted to murder around 1000 sealions on the Pacific coast .. their offense is eating salmon that fishmongers want to sell.
For every congressional race with a Republican incumbent the odds are very high that the Republican
voted for the slaughter. In addition 12 Republican attorneys general have filed suit against the laws of Massachusetts and/or California mandating more humane conditions for factory farm hens.

Pence as governor of Indiana was involved in racist vote purging. He signed into law a bill allowing restaurant owners to refuse customers for racist or homophobic reasons. His role as vp has been as a sycophant, agreeing with all of Trump's crimes.
